        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)

      FIRST EDITION of Feynman's proof of the validity of his 1949 "reformation of quantum mechanics itself," work that would "elegantly rewrite quantum theory" (American National Biography; Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 102). 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.

        PERSONAL LETTER CORRESPONDANCE Of PROFESSOR C[harles]. A. COULSON (MATHEMATICAL INSTITUTE, OXFORD) And PROFESSOR HARRISON SHULL (INDIANA UNIVERSITY).

      1949 - 1963, Oxford / Bloomington, Indiana: 1949 - Dated letters from Coulson to Shull, in chronological order:13 September 1949, 14 November 1951, 24 January 1956, 8 February 1956, 13 February 1956, 18 February 1956, 12 December 1956, 11 January 1957, 25 March 1959, 30 May 1961, 1 August 1961, 1 November 1961, 12 November 1961, 1 February 1963, 4 May 1964. Dated letters from Shull to Coulson (file copies): 7 February 1956, 14 Feburary 1956, 8 November 1961. This collection also includes one letter from Coulson to a Dr. F. H. Spedding at Iowa State College (referencing Dr. Shull and thanking Spedding for a manuscript sent to him in Oxford) and one letter from Frank O. Ellison to Coulson regarding Shull and his work on the structure of water (Ellison is mentioned several times in Coulsons other letters to Shull). These Coulson-Shull letters are a small representation of an easy-going friendship & intellectual relationship between these two prominent academics. This collection of letters comes from Shull's own personal estate, and therefore mainly consists of letters from Coulson to Shull. Though it is unknown as to how Coulson and Shull met, the two maintained a personal correspondance for at least 14 years. As a mathematician, chemist & theoretical physicist, Coulson was an active member in the formation of the Mathematical Institute at Oxford and would later become its Director. He is described on the Institute's site as "a man who packed into his life twice as much as any normal academic person . he had a gift for lucid exposition and was . indefatigable in his work, not only for science and mathematics, but also on behalf of people, whether black or white, young or old." Shull, a very well known physicist & chemist throughout the United States (having taught, worked, and done research at Iowa State College [now University], Indiana University, UC Berkeley, the University of Chicago, Princeton, Colorado University at Boulder & the Naval Postgraduate School), compared notes and research with Coulson. In fact, their correspondance represented in this collection spans a period with Shull is addressed at 3 different American universities (Iowa State College, Indiana University, & the University of Chicago). Although we are not experts in the quantum theory world, we capture the gist of the letters from Coulson to Shull (as well as through Harrison's few file copy responses) as academic and friendly notes about their intersecting research, mutual friends "I can't for the life of me understand why Larry didn't know the Kotani tables. We have either two or three copies floating round the Institute at Oxford. Very odd. But he is a bit shy, and maybe felt that he shouldn't bother other people by asking them.", and personal anecdotes "I found this extremely interesting, particularly since I believe that I was the first person to make calculations on this particular system. It's true that what I did is very primitive compared with what he has done, but that doesn't prevent one from appreciating a verey thorough-going piece of work." They even share warm and welcoming hopes for each other: "I should most certainly have said: carry on at Bloomington till you have got a Ph.D. One day I hope we will see you here. Try and get a sabbatical or something!" and "Now about your visit to Oxford. This looks bad. As we have the whole family - two grown-ups and four children here - we are travelling as cheaply as possible: and this means by boat. If your timetable is as rigid as I guess from your letter, it looks as if we shall have to wait till the Boulder meeting before we get together for a visit. It would have been lovely to invite you to stay with us in Oxford." All of Coulson's letters to Shull are signed by the Oxford Professor. Coulson's major scientific work and research as a pioneer of the application of valency to the problems of molecular structure, dynamics, and the quantum theory of reactivity. These and his discoveries in valence bond theory allowed him to be elected a Fellow of the R [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

      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.

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.

        Practical Forms of Type Theory" in Journal of Symbolic Logic, Volume 13, Number 2, June 1948, pp. 80-95 WITH A Review of "Practical Forms" in Journal of Symbolic Logic, Volume 14, Number 1, March 1949, p. 182

      - TWO FIRST EDITION ISSUES IN ORIGINAL WRAPS. In "Practical Forms of Type Theory," Alan Turing wished to "encourage 'mathematicians-in-the-street' to use notation and forms of argument which would safeguard their work from ambiguity and inconsistency; but to do this without forcing their work into the straitjacket of a particular logical system, or even requiring them to have detailed knowledge of such a system. To the end of his life, he thought this aim a proper one for a logician, and from time to time gave talks to mathematicians in which he would expound particular logical points. As a logician, however, he was interested in devising formal systems which could act as bridges between the formal and the informal, and this motivated him to produce the two systems set out in this paper" (Cooper, Alan Turing, 211). The issue is accompanied by a second issue in original wraps, this housing a review of Turing's paper. CONDITION & DETAILS: Menasha: Association for Symbolic Logic. (10 x 7 inches; 250 x 175mm). Two issues in original wraps and in pristine condition.
