Barrajón Muñoz en su estudio sobre la prehistoria literaria de Crespo, solamente menciona 'Meseta'; en la BNE el primer título que figura es esta 'Antología', mientras en las bibliografías del poeta que he consultado el primer título que se suele mencionar es 'Una Lengua Emerge' de 1950.

It was also an important triumph in the efforts of Pauling and others to apply the instruments and methods of the physical sciences to biology."

        The Love Letters of Mark Twain

      New York: Harper, 1949 - Original black cloth, dust jacket. Slipcase. A fine copy. First edition of Samuel Clemens’s wonderful love letters to his wife Livy, signed by the author both “S. L. Clemens” and “Mark Twain” on the tipped-in limitation sheet. This is one of 155 numbered copies of the deluxe limited edition. The leaf also bears the notice, “these signatures of Mark Twain have been in the possession of Harper & Brothers for fifty years. There are no more.” These letters span the years from the couple’s initial courtship in 1868 through Livy’s death in 1904. In his long first letter to Livy, who had rebuffed him, Clemens writes in small part, “I do not regret that I have loved you, still love & shall always love you. I accept the situation, uncomplainingly, hard as it is. Of old I am acquaint- ed with grief, disaster & disappointment, & have borne these troubles as became a man. So, also, shall I bear this last & bitterest, even though it break my heart. I would not dishonor this worthiest love that has yet been born within me by any puerile thought, or word, or deed. It is better to have loved and lost you than that my life should have remained forever the blank it was before ” [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Skizzenbuch. Num. und vom Künstler signiertes Exemplar Nr. 189.

      Bad Dürkheim : [E. D. Dill], 1949.. 23 Bl. : Abb. mit Text ; quer-gr. 8 Lw.. Einband gering berieben, sonst gut erhalten. In kleiner Auflage erschienen. Selten! ** Wechseln zu: Navigation, Suche Otto Dill (* 4. Juni 1884 in Neustadt an der Weinstraße; 6. Juli 1957 in Bad Dürkheim) war ein deutscher Maler. Er absolvierte zunächst eine Lehre als Verlagskaufmann, ehe er von 1908 bis 1914 Malerei an der Münchner Akademie studierte. Dort war er Meisterschüler des bekannten Tiermalers Heinrich von Zügel. 1914 meldete er sich als Kriegsfreiwilliger, wurde aber wegen einer Krankheit 1916 ins Bayerische Kriegsministerium versetzt. Bald darauf, zwei Jahre vor Kriegsende, heirateten Dill und Emmy Dorothea Scheidt. Dill begann ein Leben als freischaffender Künstler. Im Sommer 1917 war er bereits mit einer ersten Ausstellung im Münchner Glaspalast vertreten. Als Mitglied der Münchner Sezession nahm er 1922 an verschiedenen Ausstellungen der Künstlervereinigung teil. 1924 wurde ihm der Professorentitel verliehen. Zahlreiche Reisen führten den Künstler u. a. nach Nordafrika, Italien, Frankreich und Spanien. Die dort gewonnenen Eindrücke verarbeitete Dill in zahlreichen Gemälden und Zeichnungen, die deutlich vom Impressionismus geprägt sind - Wüsten- und Beduinenszenen, Stierkampfstudien und Tigerbilder sowie Hunderte von Darstellungen von Löwen, die ihm den Spitznamen "Löwen-Dill" eintrugen. Zu seinen bevorzugten Sujets zählten auch Pferderennen und Polospiele. Im Jahr 1930 siedelte der Künstler von München nach Neustadt an der Weinstraße über. Dort entstanden vorwiegend Landschaftsdarstellungen. 1941, während des Zweiten Weltkriegs, zog er nach Bad Dürkheim, wo er bis zu seinem Tod 1957 lebte und arbeitete. Eine große Kollektion seiner Werke wurde 1943 bei einem Bombenangriff auf dem Güterbahnhof Ludwigshafen a.Rh. zerstört. Um in dieser schweren Zeit zu überleben, tauschte der Künstler spontan entstandene Zeichnungen gegen Lebensmittel. Daher befinden sich heute zahlreiche solcher Gelegenheitsarbeiten Dills im Besitz pfälzischer Familien. 1949 ernannte die Stadt Bad Dürkheim Otto Dill zum Ehrenbürger, im gleichen Jahr wurde er Ehrenmitglied der Akademie der Künste in München und Ehrenmitglied der Gesellschaft der Heinrich-von-Zügel-Freunde in Wörth am Rhein. Seine Geburtsstadt widmete ihm eine Straße.

Always polite, but frequently exasperated, Manzu deals with burdens he feels are de Ridder's responsibilities (customs, shipping, etc), and is justifiably upset when, on 27 December 1949, he writes: "La mia mostra si e aperta e chiusa a mia insaputa senza nessure sapere dagli organizzatori la minima notizia, e questo nonostante le mie risetute preghiere, alle quali non e mai stato risposto. Non ho avuto nemmeno il Catalogo della mostra. Di tutto questo sono veramente stupito, veda di avvicare a quel minimo di gentilezza informandoni almeno dove si trovarro ora le mie opere [...]" ("My exhibition has opened and closed unbeknownst to me, and without my having received the slightest notification from its organizers, despite my repeated requests which were never answered. I did not even receive a catalogue of the exhibition. I am truly amazed at this, could you try to at least have the courtesy to let me know where my works are now [...]", transl.). The 16 February 1950 letter is far more conciliatory and grateful, perhaps as a consequence of having received the exhibition documentation and photographs, with which he is pleased, as well as received proceeds so far of "two hundred thousand lire". - Manzu is most widely known for his public works of sculpture, including the bronze doors at St. Peter's Basilica and two reliefs for Rockefeller Center, but was accomplished and prolific in other media as well. During WWII, his anti-Fascist drawings forced him underground, and in 1968 he was awarded the Lenin Peace Prize for his public stance against Western policies in Southeast Asia.

        Radiation Theories of Tomonaga, Schwinger, and Feynman

      Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: for The American Physical Society by the American Institute of Physics, February 1 and June 1, 1949. Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: for The American Physical Society by the American Institute of Physics, February 1 and June 1,, 1949. [In] The Physical Review Volume 75, Number 3. [Together with] The S Matrix in Quantum Electrodynamics. [In] The Physical Review Volume 75, Number 11. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green wrappers printed in black. Ownership ink stamps of C. Moller to upper wrappers. Wrappers a little rubbed with the occasional small spot, spines toned with some closed tears, minor creases to the edges of contents in volume II, contents very faintly toned. An excellent set. First editions, first impressions of the papers that demonstrated the equivalence between Richard Feynman's diagram-based approach to quantum electrodynamics and Julius Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga's operator method approach. Both theories were presented for the first time at the Pocono Conference in April 1948, with Feynman and Schwinger going head-to-head, each wary of the other and jealously guarding their intellectual territory. Freeman Dyson, "one of England's two or three most brilliant mathematical prodigies" (Gleick, Genius, p. 235) was then a graduate student at Cornell, where Feynman was teaching, and though he did not attend the conference he eagerly absorbed the notes made by attendees. At the end of the summer he submitted a "manuscript representing a cathartic outpouring of work… Dyson had found the mathematical common ground he was sure must exist [between the two theories]… His chief insight was to focus on a so-called scattering matrix, or S matrix, a mustering of all the probabilities associated with the different routes from an initial state to a given end point. He now advertised a 'unified development of the subject' – more reliable than Feynman and more useable than Schwinger" (Gleick p. 267). But Dyson was concerned about publishing his own paper on two unpublished theories by more senior physicists – would he offend Feynman or Schwinger? Discussing the predicament with Hans Bethe, Dyson argued that "it was Schwinger's and Feynman's own fault that they had not published 'any moderately intelligible account': Schwinger, he suspected, was polishing obsessively, and Feynman simply couldn't be bothered with paperwork. It was irresponsible. They were retarding the development of science. By publicising their work Dyson was performing a service to humanity, he argued… By January the war had been won. At the American Physical Society meeting Dyson found himself almost as much a hero as Schwinger had been the year before. Sitting in the audience with Feynman beside him, he listened as a speaker talked admiringly of 'the beautiful theory of Feynman-Dyson'. Feynman said loudly, 'Well, Doc, you're in'." (Gleick, pp. 267-270).
