        Collected Poems 1934-1952

      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.

        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documents are "Document A / Copy 2" (Julia Hanna) and "Document K / Copy 2" (K), the latter marked in original hand "Not For Publication Yet -S.S.", though apparently neither ever was published.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

        Beijing Rong bao zhai shi jian pu. (Painted Papers by Ch'i Pai-Shih on the Occasion of His 91st Birthday Celebration.)

      Beijing: Rong Bao Zhai Xing, 1955.Two volumes. 8 1/2 x 12 1/2. Seven text pages in Chinese, 80 water color woodblock prints on French-fold leaves. Side-stitched wraps, in silk brocade folder with ivory clasps. Fine set.A masterpiece of color printing. These woodcuts of Qi Bashi's most famous watercolor paintings were printed from the blocks with water color inks. They are almost indistinguishable from the originals. Qi Bashi's images of the smaller things of the natural world--birds, flowers, fruit, vegetables, insects, small animals--range from brilliantly colored to soft and subtle. Qi Bashi , who was a wood engraver and calligrapher, felt that "paintings must be something between likeness and unlikeness."

        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.

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). 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.

        The Electromagnetic Shift of Energy Levels (Bethe) WITH Fine Structure of the Hydrogen Atom by a Microwave Method, in Physical Review (Lamb) WITH Vol. 72, No. 3, August 1, 1947, pp. 241-243; pp. 339-341

      FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of "The Electromagnetic Shift of Energy Levels," in which Bethe, 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).

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). WITH the 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). 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&#39;s quantum theory of the electron. Lamb explains "electromagnetic attraction and repulsion&hellip; 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&#39;s quantum theory of the electron.
