      Kansas City, Missouri, June 14, 1955 Typed Letter Signed ?Harry? with 31-word handwritten postscript, one page, 7.25? x 10.5?. Kansas City, Missouri, December 17, 1956. To his former Secretary of the Treasury, John W. Snyder. Paper clip impression at top edge. Fine condition.In full, ?I am enclosing a chapter on the financial picture of the administration which is to go into the second volume of the Memoirs and on which you were so helpful. The publishers have asked drastic cutting of the more than a million and a half words that were written so that the published memoirs can be held to a half million words. All chapters have had to be trimmed. I am sure this chapter contains the essential picture, but would you be good enough to read as quickly as possible so that I may have it here in time to make any changes if necessary to get the book in by June 30.?In a handwritten postscript, Truman pens: ?What a meeting that was in Cleveland!

        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.

      FIRST EDITION 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).

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). CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Physical Society. Volume 72, July 1 to October 1, 1947. Ex-libris bearing only a small area on the front pastedown evidencing the neat removal of a bookplate. 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Bound in green buckram, gilt-lettered at the spine.

        Inscribed Photograph

      1955. unbound. Rare inscribed photograph (on the mount) in ball point pen, no date, circa 1955. This 10 x 8 photo -- a second-generation print of a 1906 image of a youthful Radtke riding De Mund at Gravesend Racetrack in Brooklyn, NY -- has been matted to 14 x 11 inches. Inscribed: "To my old pal "Slim" - from Herman Radtke." Further information listed on the mat indicates that this image was taken by acclaimed photographer J.C. Hemment and that it came from renowned collector J.M. Holmes -- an exceptional piece of racing history. Very good condition. One of the greatest and most successful race horse jockeys of the early to mid 1900s, whose career was continuously marred by controversy. When Paul J. Rainey, the American businessman, philanthropist, and playboy, purchased the race horse De Mund for $45,000 in 1906, he immediately spent an additional $25,000 so he could have a contract on jockey Herman Radtke. At the time, Radtke was an apprentice under contract to racing icon Jack B. Keen. A short time thereafter, he stunned the horse racing world by winning 16 races in a four-day period.

Washington, DC: Naval Research Laboratory, 1955. 263 x 202 mm. Original printed stiff wrappers, cloth backstrip, minor dampstain on front cover, ownership signature. Together 3 items. Very good to fine. <p></p>Extremely Rare Group of Materials Documenting the Record-Breaking Flight of the Viking 11 Rocket and the Spectacular High-Altitude Pictures of Earth Taken During the Flight. These materials include a carbon typescript of Baumann and Winkler&#146;s text (not including the &#147;Future Program&#148; and &#147;Acknowledgement&#148; sections at the end, which likely had not yet been written), the original photographic prints and diagrams used for their report, an early published version of the report illustrated with photographic prints, and a later version illustrated with halftones. Baumann and Winkler&#146;s report is extremely rare, with only one copy recorded in OCLC (Stanford University). <p></p>On May 24, 1954, the Naval Research Laboratory launched the Viking 11 rocket from White Sands, New Mexico. The rocket rose to 158.4 miles above the Earth&#151;an altitude record for a Western single-stage rocket up to that time&#151;and the camera mounted to the rocket recorded spectacular images of the Earth from the threshold of outer space. <p></p>"Viking 11 broke the photographic altitude record on May 7, 1954, when it carried a fifteen-pound K-24 aircraft camera to 158 miles. Two basic kinds of pictures were taken by that rocket as it climbed straight up and then started to tumble back down. Most showed the terrain below in splendid detail. One, taken at the top of the trajectory, clearly showed El Paso, Las Cruces, the Rio Grande, and three railroad lines, all spread out beneath cotton-puff clouds whose shadows dappled the desert floor. <p></p>"Others, taken obliquely, captured terrain and clouds extending all the way to a gently curved horizon more than a thousand miles away. Two of the pictures, fitted together as a composite, made a portrait of sixty degrees of horizon southeast of White Sands. It showed a 1,036-mile-long crescent at the end of 600,000 square miles of parched land and, beyond, a mottled blanket of languid white vapor covering the Gulf of Mexico. Above the horizon, out beyond Earth&#146;s marvelously crisp edge, there was the stark blackness of deep space" (Burrows, This New Ocean: The Story of the First Space Age, p. 135). <p></p>The rocket on which the camera was mounted was the eleventh in the series of twelve Viking rockets built and flown by the U. S. Navy between 1949 and 1955. The Viking rockets were the first large liquid-fueled rockets developed in the United States; they were intended to improve upon and replace the captured German V-2 rockets brought back to the U.S. after World War II. As far as we know, the Viking 11 was the first rocket to carry a camera since the V-2 rocket launched by the Navy from White Sands on March 7, 1947; that rocket reached an altitude of only 101 miles, and the pictures taken during that flight were not nearly as clear as those taken from the Viking 11. The Viking 12, which flew on February 4, 1955, also had a mounted camera; it reached an altitude of 143 miles.</p>
