Il souhaite recevoir "Les Principes de la vie politique" de Jean Bertrand, pour en faire une analyse, et lui adresse en retour le dernier numéro du Courrier du Centre d'Etudes Politiques et Civiques, où figure sa critique de "Sahara, terre de demain". Il remercie Pierre Henry pour l'envoi de son "livre magnifique, enrichi d'une dédicace qui me touche et m'honore grandement.

[Le livre en question est "Le Memorial du Maréchal Pétain, textes et documents recueillis par Pierre Henry" ; Rémy avait beaucoup oeuvré pour la réhabilitation de la mémoire de Pétain : en 1950, il fit paraître, dans Carrefour, un article intitulé "La justice et l'opprobre", prônant la réhabilitation du maréchal Pétain. Peu de temps après, il avait adhéré à l'Association pour défendre la mémoire du maréchal Pétain (ADMP), ce que De Gaulle dévoua]. Dans une dernière lettre, il déplore la restauration de l'église de Domrémy. "Pauvre Jeanne d'Arc, et pauvre église de Domrémy, que j'ai eu la chance de visiter avant qu'elle soit mise au détestable goût du jour!".

        "Relative State" Formulation of Quantum Mechanics

      Lancaster and New York: American Institute of Physics, 1957. First edition. Fine. Fine. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Hugh Everett's ground breaking work on the existence of multiple universes, a new theory addressing the flaws of the Copenhagen quantum mechanics interpretation. "The Schrödinger equation delineates how a quantum system's wave function will change through time, an evolution that it predicts will be smooth and deterministic (that is, with no randomness). But that elegant mathematics seems to contradict what happens when humans observe a quantum system, such as an electron, with a scientific instrument (which itself may be regarded as a quantum-mechanical system). For at the moment of measurement, the wave function describing the superposition of alternatives appears to collapse into one member of the superposition, thereby interrupting the smooth evolution of the wave function and introducing discontinuity... "Many of the founders of quantum mechanics, notably Bohr, Werner Heisenberg and John von Neumann, agreed on an interpretation of quantum mechanics-known as the Copenhagen interpretation- to deal with the measurement problem. This model of reality postulates that the mechanics of the quantum world reduce to, and only find meaning in terms of, classically observable phenomena-not the reverse… Entire generations of physicists were taught that the equations of quantum mechanics work only in one part of reality, the microscopic, while ceasing to be relevant in another, the macroscopic… "In stark contrast, Everett addressed the measurement problem by merging the microscopic and macroscopic worlds. He made the observer an integral part of the system observed, introducing a universal wave function that links observers and objects as parts of a single quantum system. He described the macroscopic world quantum mechanically and thought of large objects as existing in quantum superpositions as well. Breaking with Bohr and Heisenberg, he dispensed with the need for the discontinuity of a wave-function collapse... "Everett was not the first physicist to criticize the Copenhagen collapse postulate as inadequate. But he broke new ground by deriving a mathematically consistent theory of a universal wave function from the equations of quantum mechanics itself. The existence of multiple universes emerged as a consequence of his theory, not a predicate" (Scientific American). "Hugh Everett's relative-state formulation of quantum mechanics is an attempt to solve the quantum measurement problem by dropping the collapse dynamics from the standard von Neumann-Dirac formulation of quantum mechanics. Everett then wanted to recapture the predictions of the standard collapse theory by explaining why observers nevertheless get determinate measurement records that satisfy the standard quantum statistics" (Stanford Encyclopedia). Everett's theory has garnered much support from the scientific community recently and is credited as the source of inspiration for the modern field of quantum computing. He is described by David Deutsch as being "before his time. [Everett] represents the refusal to relinquish objective explanation. A great deal of harm was done to progress in both physics and philosophy by the abdication of the original purpose of those fields: to explain the world. We got irretrievably bogged down in formalisms, and things were regarded as progress which are not explanatory, and the vacuum was filled by mysticism and religion and every kind of rubbish..." (David Deutsch). IN: Reviews of Modern Physics, Volume 29, Number 3 (July, 1957), pp 454-464. Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: American Institute of Physics. Quarto, original wrappers; custom silk box. A FINE COPY.

        Edgar Varèse peine à mener à bien son projet avant-gardiste.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 1 In-folio 21/01/1957 Ecrite sur aérogramme. Adresse au dos. petite déchirure à l'ouverture de la lettre. BELLE LETTRE D'EDGAR VARESE SUR SES DIFFICULTES DE MENER A BIEN SON PROJET AVANT-GARDISTE. Il adresse ses voeux et ceux de son épouse Louise, « et de vous souhaiter un 1957 de derrière les fagots – satisfaisant – positif ». Il vient de recevoir une lettre enthousiaste de la comtesse de Maigret, évoquant son entretien à la radio avec Charbonnier, et s'interroge : « quel entretien ? Est-ce que c'est ce que nous avons enregistré chez M. Reichenbach ? Cela m'amuserait d'avoir détails si vous avez un moment à vous, surtout de me mettre au courant de ce qui a eu lieu – et à quelle puissance doit être réduite la magnificence ! ». Il évoque ensuite ses projets : « Trouvé à mon retour pile de lettres à répondre – et travail à remettre à flot. Toujours à la recherche de la galette qui pourrait me permettre d'obtenir l'équipement qu'il me faudrait pour mener à bien ce que j'ai en tête – sans avoir à considérer en premier lieu ce que cela rapportera - seule question susceptible - ici - de garantir qu'un projet « makes sens » [Varèse évoque probablement la difficulté de création de son Poème électronique, composition sur bande magnétique, qui sera finalement créé l'année suivante, en diffusion spatiale par 400 haut-parleurs, dans le pavillon Philips conçu par Le Corbusier pour l'exposition internationale de Bruxelles]. Il ajoute : « excusez ce mot décousu – en haut – en bas – le téléphone n'arrête pas de sonner [.] », et termine en P.S. : « Si vous voyez Gilson [probablement le pianiste et chef d'orchestre de jazz Jef Gilson] ou Barraud [le compositeur Henry Barraud, alors directeur de l'ORTF et fondateur de la maîtrise de Radio France], mettez-les au courant que je leur ai téléphoné – sans les trouver – laissé messages – mais me demande si la personne qui a répondu au téléphone les a transmis. Je me sens aussi poli qu'un boutiquier de Paris. Je fais des progrès ! Je me mets à l'échelle ». Compositeur de musique électro-acoustique, naturalisé américain. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Silent Life

Boldly signed by Thomas Merton on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of wear. Jacket photograph showing the cloister of the Cistercian Abbey of Hauterive, Fribourg, Switzerland by Benedikt Rast. A very nice example, uncommon signed. Thomas Merton wrote The Silent Life a decade after he took orders. In his Prologue, Merton describes the book as "a meditation on the monastic life by one who, without any merit of his own, is privileged to know that life on the inside . . . who seeks only to speak as the mouthpiece of a tradition centuries old." It is a remarkable work-one that combines a lucid and informative description of the nature and forms of monasticism, communal and solitary, with a passionate defense of the contemplative's quest for God.

        Atlas Shrugged.

      Random House, New York 1957 - First edition of one of the most influential novels of the twentieth century. Large octavo, original green cloth, frontispiece stamped in gilt, spine stamped in black and gilt. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Daniel Verigen with my sincere appreciation Ayn Rand 1/6/65." Fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket with touch of wear. Dust jacket design by George Salter. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A superior example. "From 1943 until its publication in 1957, [Rand] worked on the book that many say is her masterpiece, Atlas Shrugged. This novel describes how a genius named John Galt grows weary of supporting a society of ungrateful parasites and one day simply shrugs and walks away. He becomes an inspiration to like-minded men and women, all of whom eventually follow his example, until society, in its agony, calls them back to responsibility and respect. Again [as with Rand's novel The Fountainhead in 1943] reviews were unsympathetic, and again people bought the book" (ANB). The theme of Atlas Shrugged, as Rand described it, is "the role of man's mind in existence." The book explores a number of philosophical themes that Rand would subsequently develop into the philosophy of Objectivism. By 1984 more than five million copies of Atlas Shrugged had been sold, and in a 1991 Library of Congress survey Americans named it second only to the Bible as the book that had most influenced their lives.

This novel describes how a genius named John Galt grows weary of supporting a society of ungrateful parasites and one day simply shrugs and walks away. He becomes an inspiration to like-minded men and women, all of whom eventually follow his example, until society, in its agony, calls them back to responsibility and respect. Again [as with Rand's novel The Fountainhead in 1943] reviews were unsympathetic, and again people bought the book" (ANB). The theme of Atlas Shrugged, as Rand described it, is "the role of man's mind in existence." The book explores a number of philosophical themes that Rand would subsequently develop into the philosophy of Objectivism. By 1984 more than five million copies of Atlas Shrugged had been sold, and in a 1991 Library of Congress survey Americans named it second only to the Bible as the book that had most influenced their lives.
