        Excavations at Tepe Gawra (2 vols.)

      University of Pennsylvania Press, Philadelphia 1950 - Large quartos. Vol.1: Levels I-VIII. (xvi) 220pp. + 86 plates. 12.5x9.5". Green buckram boards with silver lettering on the spine. Vol.2: Levels IX-XX. "Museum Monographs". (10) 260pp. + 182 plates. 8.5x11". Illustrated grey cloth boards with black lettering on the front cover and spine. Photo-illustrated frontispieces, depicting the mound of the site.The publication is a comprehensive examination and analysis of the excavations done at the site of the ancient Mesopotamian settlement of Tepe Gawra, in was is now Nineveh Province, in Northern Iraq. The site, which was occupied from approximately 5000-1500 B.C., is seen as a significant discovery in Mesopotamian archaeology as it represents one of the few sites with artifacts dating from the Halaf-Ubaid Transitional period. The work covered in the volumes was done in 1927, and 1931-38, by a joint expedition from the University of Pennsylvania and the American Schools of Oriental Research, headed for most of that time by Ephraim Avigdor Speiser. The volumes cover the excavation of the stratified levels of the site, from the top downward, going further back in time, with vol.1 covering the first 8, and vol.2 covering the subsequent 11 layers of the dig. The publication contains a total of 268 b/w plates, with vol.2 alone containing 70 plates in photogravure (many of which feature multiple images). The plates illustrate various aspects of the dig, including work at the site, individual artifacts, and detailed topographic and architectural maps depicting the content of the various layers, geography and spacial layout of the structures. Several of the maps in vol.2 are multipage fold-outs, with two measuring 13.5x17". The extensive visual survey is accompanied by text elucidating the contents of the individual plates, organized by content, and giving copious amounts of the other historical and technical background on the excavation.Vol.2 with some light smudging the covers and the spine, with some light bumping and rubbing to the corners and the head & tail of the spine.

        Dipole Transitions in the Nuclear Photo-Effect" [Bethe & Levinger, pp. 115-129] WITH "Identity in Quantum Electrodynamics" [Ward, p. 182] in The Physical Review, Vol. 78, No. 2, April 15, 1950

      American Physical Society, Lancaster 1950 - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF TWO PAPERS OF SIGNIFICANCE TO THE THEORY OF THE ATOMIC NUCLEUS AND ELEMENTARY PARTICLES: Bethe and Levinger's sum rule calculations demonstrated the total integrated photonuclear cross section, an important quantity demonstrating that the giant resonance, a "high-frequency collective excitation of atomic nuclei", is caused, in the main, by absorption of electric dipole radiation" (Wikipedia). John Clive Ward's introduction of the 'Ward Identity' (or 'Ward's Identities'), now known as the Ward-Takahashi Identity. "Low lying giant dipole resonance provided the first evidence of a strong nuclear photoeffect, with an integrated cross section of the order of one classical sum rule, scaled by the ratio of the nucleon to the electron mass with respect to the atomic case" (Christillin, Nuclear Photoreactions, 1). The theoretical interpretation of this was first given in 1948 by Goldhaber and Teller. Two years later, Bethe and Levinger "apply sum rules to calculate under certain approximations the integrated cross section and the mean energy for photon absorption by heavy nuclei" (Abstract, Physical Review 78, 1950, p. 115). Attributed to the onset of the electric dipole absorption, the sum rule they developed is independent of any particular model of the nucleus. Significantly, Bethe and Levinger realized "that an important modification to the electric dipole sum rule with respect to the atomic case was due to the presence of exchange potentials in nuclear physics" (Christillin, 2). John Clive Ward was a British-Australian theoretical physicist whose contributions helped shape the post-war quantum era particularly with regard to particle physics and renormalization theory. In his second published paper, Ward, on the heals of work by Dyson, wrote about "the equivalence of the quantum electrodynamics theories of Feynman, Schwinger, and Tomonaga (Duarte, The Man Behind an Identity in Quantum Electrodynamics, AP 46, 6, 2009). "The Ward Identities have their origin in a 1950 paper [the paper offered] published in Physical Review. This was a succinct master piece authored by J. C. Ward? Building on previous work by Dyson this elegant letter proved in seven steps one of the most important and celebrated results of renormalization theory. In a following paper, published in 1951, Ward extended the initial result to a set of identities. Today, the Ward Identity or Ward Identities, are standard teachings in theoretical physics and continue to be the focus of considerable research activity. Some four thousand journal physics papers have been published with Ward Identity or Ward Identities either in their titles or abstracts" (Duarte, Optics Journal Portal, Tunable Lasers).
