        [Photo Album]: Girl's High School Album from Connecticut

      New Haven, Connecticut: 1949. Oblong quarto. Green leather over paper boards embossed with gilt decorations measuring 10" x 13". Assembled are 230 black and white photographs of various sizes from roughly 2" x 3.5" to 7" x 9" affixed to stiff black paper with captions. Some toning, creasing on occasional photos, and tiny tears on the paper leaves thus very good. A photo album documenting New Haven, Connecticut native, Rhoda Sochrin, while attending Wilbur Cross High School and later Southern Connecticut State University. The exploits of young New Englanders in the late 1940s and early 1950s plays out through the extensive pages of Sochrin's album. Beach excursions filled with antics of boys trying to impress their female counterparts with handstands and silly poses; a girl smoking with the caption, "for blackmail use"; another of Rhoda and "Howie" states, "the lovers? Either I'm asleep or I'm dreamy eyed." Later pictures show the group at a Phi Beta dance and include professional "souvenir" photographs with a live band pictured behind them. Sochrin also collected autographs and publicity photos of celebrities, present are Howard Smith, Karen Rich, and Artie Shaw. Rhoda was a member of the current affairs club and aspired to be a writer and contributed to her university's literary journal. A nice insight on the goings on of the life of the American teenager after the war.

        Mathematical Formulation of the Quantum Theory of Electromagnetic Interaction" (Feynman) WITH "Spin Echoes" (Hahn) in The Physical Review, Volume 80, Number 3, November 1, 1950, pp. 440-457 (Feynman), pp. 580-594 (Hahn)

In this, the third paper in his pivotal reformulation of quantum mechanics, Feynman provides the mathematical "proof of the validity of the [his] rules for calculations of amplitudes in quantum electrodynamics. Feynman's paper rigorously proved that his treatment of "the problem of molecular forces from a thoroughly quantum-mechanical point of view" was accurate (DSB). Feynman had arrived "at a simple means of calculating the energy of a molecular system that continues to guide quantum chemists" (ibid).& & In 1965 Feynman was awarded the Nobel Prize along with Schwinger and Tomonaga "for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles" (Particle Physics, One Hundred Years of Discoveries, 113). & & ALSO included is Erwin Hahn's "Spin Echoes," the first detection and report of spin echoes in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Physical Society, Volume 80, October to December 1950. While bound in buckram, this volume is not ex-libris (and bears no indication that it ever was). bound in green buckram, gilt-lettered at the spine. Slight rubbing at edge tips; tightly and solidly bound. Bright and clean inside and out. Very good condition.

        Greener than you think

      London: Victor Gollancz,, 1949. Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine in green. With the dust jacket. Tips just nicked; an excellent copy in the somewhat spine-tanned jacket with the faintest rubbing to corners. First UK edition (first published in 1947 by William Sloane, New York), first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to legendary Sci-Fi writer Forry Ackerman, "For Forrest Ackerman, who prefers fantasy to improbalia / Ward Moore, who prefers improbabilia to fantasy." Already a scarce title (the UK edition is harder to find than the US), this copy also includes (uniquely in our experience) the wraparound band with the endorsement by Bernard Newman, "The most brilliant imaginative novel I have read for years. Fiendishly ingenious", and also has a small letter "A" (made by a plastic label-maker) affixed at the head of the spine panel, possibly denoting the reservation of this copy for presentation. This is also the only inscribed copy of Ward Moore's many fiction titles that we have seen.

        1949 National League Champion Brooklyn Dodgers signed ball including Robinson and Campanella

      n.p., [1949] Official National League Ford Frick Baseball signed by Hall of Famers Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Duke Snider, and Pee Wee Reese, and Gil Hodges, Billy Cox, Don Newcombe (rookie), Gene Hermanski, Carl Furillo, Preacher Roe, Johnny Jorgensen, Bruce Edwards, Mike McCormick, Ed Miksis, Tom Brown, Dick Whitman, Johnny Hopp, Joe Hatten, Rex Barney, Jack Banta, Ervin Palica, Paul Minner, Morrie Martin, manager Burt Shotten on the sweet spot, bullpen catcher Sam Narron, coach Milt Stock, and two others. Also signed by Dodgers pitcher Elmer Sexauer who had pitched two-thirds of an inning on September 6, 1948, and walked two batters on September 12, 1948; that was his entire major league career. He most probably was visiting the team when this ball was signed. The signatures of Snider and three others appear to have had minor restoration. Fairly even shellacking, the custom of the time, preserves the major signatures. Pre-certified by JSA.

        "MY FOOLISH HEART" SCREENPLAY BY

      Hollywood: Samuel Goldwyn Productions, 1-14 June 1949.. [1],135 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only of white, blue and pink paper, bradbound in mimeographed wrappers. Wrappers heavily chipped and stained, some offset and staining from the dark blue wrappers to the margins of the earliest and final leaves, otherwise textually in very good order. A rare production script of the sole adaptation to the screen of any work by J. D. Salinger, based loosely on his short story, "Uncle Wiggly in Connecticut," which appeared in the NEW YORKER in March of 1948. This draft is shot through with dated revises on colored papers from the two week period noted above, and according to a pencil note in a contemporary hand, the production started shooting on 13 June and finished on 29 July. The film was directed by Mark Robson, and starred Dana Andrews and Susan Hayward. Though the screenwriters brought to bear on the project were proven talents (including CASABLANCA among their many credits), their fleshing out of Salinger's short story and transposition of it to the screen evidently proved an embittering experience for the young writer, and no other authorized film adaptation of Salinger's work has been undertaken. Any paper associated with this film has proven elusive over the years, and scripts particularly so.

        ORIGINAL JAPANESE WOODBLOCK PRINT COVERDONE BY VAN GULIK FOR HIS 1949 TRANSLATION OF DEE GOONG AN

      1949., 1949. One of a limited number of the original Japanese woodblock prints done by Van Gulik for his 1949 translation of Dee Goong An, The Ancient Chinese Detective Story, that are criminal cases solved by Judge Dee. The book DEE GOONG AN was published in 1949 and limited to 1200 copies. This print was used as the dust jacket for the book, but after his death in 1967, a small number (probably 20 copies), were found among his holdings and were sold by his wife. On the printing of Dee Goong An, Dr. van Gulik noted: The cover of this book represents the scene described on page 197. ["Judge Dee had the senior scribe read aloud his notes of the confession, and Hsu Deh-tai affixed his seal thereto. The judge slowly reread the document. Then he ordered the constables to bring in Mrs. Djou ... They took off her robes, leaving her only one undergarment, and then stretched her out on the floor. Having brought in the large screws, they made her lie on the heavy boards with her back, and placed her arms and legs in the screws... Her body writhed in vain in the terrible grip, and she shrieked hoarsely, but she gave no sign of wanting to confess."]. The print measures 13" x 18" and is protected with a mat and tasteful wooden frame. The condition of the print is fine and it provides a scene that is present in one of the three stories Judge Dee had to solve. An elusive item and an exceptional copy.
