        Observation of antiprotons.

      1955 - Discovery of the AntiprotonChamberlain, Owen (1920-2006), Emilio Segrè (1905-89) et al. Observation of antiprotons. In The Physical Review, 2nd series, 100 (1955): 947-50. Whole number. 763-979pp. 268 x 202 mm. Original printed wrappers, vertical crease in back wrapper. Boxed.First Edition, journal issue. Segrè and Chamberlain, colleagues at the University of California, Berkeley, shared the 1959 Nobel Prize in physics for their discovery of the antiproton, a particle with the same mass and spin as the proton but with opposite charge and magnetic moment. Such antiparticles had been predicted in 1928 by Dirac's relativistic theory of the electron, and the first such particle, the positron, had been discovered by C. D. Anderson in 1932. Several rival groups at Berkeley also entered the antiproton hunt, but the Segrè team's experimental ingenuity insured its triumph:"I decided to attack the problem in two ways. One was based on the determination of the charge and mass of the particle. The other concentrated on the observation of the phenomena attendant on the annihilation of a stopping antiproton. The stopping antiproton and a proton of the target should mutually annihilate each other, and the rest mass of the two particles should transform itself in one of many possible ways into other particles such as pions. These would leave tracks in a photographic emulsion and the annihilation would thus become evident. . . ."We started the run on August 25, 1955, and after a few days of tuning up, we began observing antiproton signals. We based the identification on measurement of the velocity, momentum, and charge of a particle. The signals for velocity were oscilloscope traces recording the passage of a particle through a velocity-selecting Cerenkov detector. . . . We detected about one antiproton for every few hundred thousand other particles crossing our apparatus. . . . We decided to write a letter to the Physical Review and an article for Nature. . . . The mass-spectrograph experiment concluded on October 1, 1955, having proved the existence of the antiproton, and soon thereafter the emulsion work confirmed it" (Segrè, A Mind Always in Motion, pp. 256-57).

        Eloise: A Book for Precocious Grown Ups

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1955 Illustrated by Hilary Knight. First edition, first printing. Publisher's cream cloth, with an illustration of Eloise to the front board in black, lettered in black and maroon; in the original pictorial dust jacket, with Knight's illustration of Eloise drawing on a vanity mirror to the front panel, black and white photographs of the author and illustrator to the rear panel. Very good, with some light wear to the extremities, minor toning to the spine and board edges, fold-out page (13-16) slightly loose at the head but still firmly bound into the text block, bright and clean pages; price-clipped dust jacket, with some wear and minor chipping to the extremities, small chip to the spine head, some rubbing to the hinges, light toning to the spine and rear panel, a few light spots of minor soiling to the otherwise bright panels. Overall, a clean copy of the classic children's book. Eloise: A Book for Precocious Grown Ups is the first book in Kay Thompson's series featuring the rambunctious child protagonist Eloise, a resident of the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Eloise, like the author herself, is vivacious, charming, and spunky; Thompson herself was an actress and singer, as well as one of the first women to wear fashionable pants - a bold move in the 1940s. Indeed, while many cite her goddaughter Liza Minnelli as an inspiration for the character, Thompson insists that she, also a resident of the Plaza, largely based Eloise on herself. The other novels in Thompson's series feature Eloise in a series of adventures and include Eloise in Paris (1957), Eloise at Christmastime (1958) and Eloise in Moscow (1959).. Illus. by Knight, Hilary. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

        The Natural Selection Theory of Antibody Formation," in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 55 No. 11 pp. 849 - 857, November 1955

      - FIRST EDITION WITH ORIGINAL WRAPS BOUND IN of the groundbreaking theoretical paper by Niels K. Jerne describing his theory of antibody formulation. In 1984 when the Nobel Prize Committee awarded Jerne for his work in Physiology and Medicine, they did so noting that his "view of the nature of the immune system constitutes the basis for modern immunology" (Nobel Prize Committee) "Jerne's "natural-selection theory regarding antibody formation breaks with old views on the immune response and is a starting point of modern cellular immunology" (Nobel Prize Press Release, nobelprize)." Jerne "proposed that a broad range of specificities of antibodies were released into the blood spontaneously and that antibodies were subject to a replicative drive following their binding to antigen." In order to remain consistent with data indicating a cellular origin of antibody production, he postulated that on binding antigen, antibodies were shuttled to the appropriate cells for reproduction (Pollard, Antibodies and autoimmunity, 46)." Jerne shared the 1984 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine "for theories concerning the specificity in development and control of the immune system. CONDITION & DETAILS: Washington D. C.: The University of Chicago Press. Annual volume with original wraps included. Ex-libris volume with library stickers on spine and rear cover, and bookplate inside front cover; each of the front wraps has a small stamp on it. Bound in maroon cloth, gilt-lettered at the spine.

      London: Dent, 1955. 8vo, xiv, 178 pp. Later quarter red morocco lettered in gilt. A few light pencil annotations in the text at the end. Reprint. Bound in at the front between the Ã’NoteÓ and the Ã’AuthorÕs prologueÓ is a small folded fragment of an envelope on which Dylan Thomas has drafted a few lines of Ã’For as long as forever isÓ, consisting of eight lines written in pencil with corrections, and on the verso the first two lines written also in pencil. This poem was first attempted by Thomas in or prior to 1936 when he abandoned the poem because the opening line was Ã’completely out of placeÓ (see Ã’Letters to Vernon WatkinsÓ pp. 47-8). Later he used it as the last line of the poem Ã’Twenty-four YearsÓ. In the Roy Davids sale of 2013 a manuscript version of this poem sold for £23,750. The catalogue notes: Ã’A first version of the poem was first written in 1936 and published in 'Twentieth Century Verse' in January 1937 (Ralph Maud); Ferris (Letters) describes that as an unfinished poem and notes that Texas has a twelve-line draft of the first version. No manuscript of the poem has been sold at auction.

        An American Architecture

      New York: Horizon Press, 1955. First edition. Very good in a very good supplied dust jacket, with the jacket bearing Bramhall House as the publisher. Slight spine roll; wear to the cloth at spine and along the upper and lower edges of the boards; rubbing, slight soiling and a few unobtrusive stray pen marks (in red ink) to the front board; hinge split but holding at the title page. A survivor, bearing the scars of time and inattentive care, but also bearing Wright's inscription and signature on the front free endpaper, in the red box in the upper corner, his preferred spot. Not without a certain rugged charm, if not an air of indominable spirit.

        Two Original Australian UFO/Contact Close Encounter Investigation Reports, 1953 and 1955. From the Collection of Max Miller

      Adelaide, Australia: See Text, 1955 Adelaide, Australia: Australian Flying Saucer Research Society / S.A. Flying Saucer Research Society; [and] Fairfield N.S.W. Australia, The Australian Flying Saucer Bureau. 1953 and 1955. From the collection of UFOlogist Max Miller. Typescripts (apparently carbons), with sketches, contained in a black two-hole paper binder. Some raggedness to some edges, some toning. About very good. Original typescripts involving interviews with two claimed close-encounter contactees, one ("K") in August, 1953 and the other ("Julia Hanna") apparently in August or September of 1955 (the interview was conducted on 9/2/55). The documents are "Document A / Copy 2" (Julia Hanna) and "Document K / Copy 2" (K), the latter marked in original hand "Not For Publication Yet -S.S.", though apparently neither ever was published. Document A is a typescript of an interview under hypnosis of Julia Hanna on 9/2/55, presented here by the Australian Flying Saucer Research Society, Adelaide, (as identified on the title page) or The Australian Flying Saucer Bureau, Fairfield N.S.W. (as identified by a piece of letterhead, laid-in, on which is a pencil tracing of a map of "part of Venus" drawn by Julia while under hypnosis). The interview occupies 41 typescript pages, followed by the aforementioned laid in letterhead, followed by four more typescript pages of what was apparently an ESP session with Julia; these include a short list of Julia Hanna's translation of eight simple alien pictoglyphs. "Document K" (the one marked "not for publication") comprises a title page and three typescript pages describing an interview with the other claimed contactee, here identified only as "K" (hence, "Document K", assumed). This one is by the "S.A. Flying Saucer Research Society", but is not South African, being also in Adelaide. It's presumably some variant of the aforementioned society, the S.A. probably denoting"South Australian". Document K contains four simple (traced) sketches by K, two of a UFO from two angles, one a "sketch of roof of house showing two 'stove pipes' [as termed by K] (this a sketch of extratrerretrial living quarters ) and one, occupying an entire 8 1/2" x 11" page, a partial plan view layout of an extraterrestrial compound, though not on earth - the sketch , which shows a nearby beach, also has a spot denoted "K landed here". To the best of my knowledge, neither claimed event was ever published. Whatever was and is going on with contactees, it's fascinating, and certainly not explained. A rather amazing original source to behold. From the collection of noted UFOlogist Max Miller. L103

        1616 Geneva Bible - Folio Last Issue Date

      - This is the last Geneva Bible printed in England; produced five years after the first edition of the King James version, it brings to an end the printing of Puritan Bibles in that country and marks the close of the Geneva version's era of supremacy.This is a black-letter folio edition, illustrated with a handful of in-text woodcuts (including the Ark and its paraphernalia, and charts of consanguinity). The copy consists essentially of the Old Testament and some additional matter; it lacks two of the four preliminary leaves (including the title-page, publication information being provided by the colophon) and it also lacks the Apocrypha and New Testament. It begins with "Of the incomparable treasure of the holy Scriptures"; the "Briefe Table of the interpretation of the proper names which are chiefly found in the Olde Testament" and the "Table of the principall things that are conteined in the Bible, after the order of the Alphabet" are both present. Full later mottled calf, covers framed in double blind fillets and fleuron roll; spine with raised bands, blind-tooled compartment decorations, and gilt-stamped title and date; incomplete, with title-page, Apocrypha, and N.T. lacking. Binding rubbed/bumped at stress points, one compartment scuffed. Front free endpaper, first text page, and several others institutionally pressure-stamped; first page with rubber-stamped numeral in lower margin and early inked annotation regarding date of printing. Front free endpaper with affixed slips documenting gift donation in 1955, and with inked annotation regarding date; back pastedown showing traces of now-absent pocket. Tattering to first leaves not reaching text, and first one with recent repairs, second one with area of loss to upper outer portion affecting a border and ten lines of text, third one with central tear (touching woodcut map) repaired some time ago with tape, four leaves each with short tear from lower margin without loss, one leaf with lower outer corner torn away with partial loss of shouldernotes and image caption, final index leaf with hole affecting six lines. Expectable sorts of age-toning, dust-soiling, and light spotting/staining, only; lower outer corners of first quarter waterstained (often faintly). In sum a survivor; "breeches" in Genesis underlined in ink. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fine Structure of the Hydrogen Atom by a Microwave Method, in Physical Review, Vol. 72, No. 3, August 1, 1947, pp. 241-243

      - FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE IN ORIGINAL WRAPS of the paper in which Lamb announced the fine structure of the hydrogen atom, discovered the discrepancy in electromagnetic theory called the Lamb Shift, and began the revolution that led to Quantum Electrodynamics (QED). QED basically describes how light and matter interact, addressing it as a small difference between energy levels of two orbitals of the hydrogen atom that was unexplained and at odds with prevailing electromagnetic theory, then Dirac's quantum theory of the electron. Lamb explains "electromagnetic attraction and repulsion? in terms of the exchange of photons between charged particles" (Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 100). The Lamb Shift, then, is a small difference between energy levels of two orbitals of the hydrogen atom that was unexplained and at odds with prevailing electromagnetic theory, then Dirac's quantum theory of the electron. This small difference, caused by the interaction between the electron and the vacuum, became the impetus for the development of QED. QED, sometimes said to be the most accurate physical theory ever written, became the model for quantum field theories that would be developed in the future" (ibid). Able to mathematically describe all phenomena involving electrically charged particles interacting by means of exchange of photons, QED can make extremely accurate predictions. Richard Feynman has called it "the jewel of physics" for this reason. In 1955, Lamb was awarded the Noble Prize along with P. Kusch (whose paper is also included here) "for his discoveries concerning the fine structure of the hydrogen spectrum" (Noble Prize Committee). CONDITION & DETAILS: Volume 72, Number 3. Original Wraps 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Meticulously rebacked at the spine to match the green of the wraps. The wraps are in near fine condition, as is the interior.

WITH Bethe&#39;s "The Electromagnetic Shift of Energy Levels," in which the author, considering the Lamb/Retherford discovery of the shift of the 2S-state of hydrogen upward in energy evidenced in "Fine Structure," took up an idea of Hans Kramer&#39;s that if one renormalized the mass of the electron ("taking into account its interaction with its own electromagnetic field, then only those parts of the self-energy which are not contained in the mass of the particle would be observable and amenable to experimentation") (Mehra, The Conceptual Completion, 1039). "The main idea in Bethe&#39;s calculation was to use Kramer&#39;s renormalization procedure (although in a quantum, rather than a classical context) for the self-energy of the electron in a nonrelativistic consideration of this problem" (ibid). When done, Bethe had "completed the first non-relativistic computation of the shift of the lines of the hydrogen atom as measured by Lamb and Retherford. Despite the linmitations of the computation, agreement was excellent. [Bethe&#39;s] idea was simply to attach infinities to corrections at mass and charge that were actually fixed to a finite value by experiments. In this way, the infinities get absorbed in those constants and yield a finite result in good agreement with experiments. This procedure was named renormalization" (Wikipedia).
