        Eigh. Brief mit Unterschrift, 1 Seite, kl-4, ohne Ort und Jahr (1957?).

      - An einen Kritiker. "Monsieur, je vous remercie infiniment de votre critique des Nouvelles littéraires sur 'Bonjour tristesse'. Je sais qu'il est très flatteur d'avoir une critique de vous, à plus fort raison une bonne. Il me reste à éspérer de pouvoir répondre un jour et d'une manière satisfaisante à vos questions. J'espère aussi pouvoir vous remercier prochainement de vive voix et vous donne mes meilleurs sentiments . ". - Am Rand minimal fleckig und knittrig, kleiner Bugriss. Die 18jährige Françoise Sagan (eigentlich Françoise Quoirez) schrieb ihren Roman-Bestseller "Bonjour tristesse" in nur 7 Wochen und erhielt 1954 dafür den Prix des Critiques. Ihr Brief ist vermutlich an André Bourin gerichtet, den Chefredakteur der Wochenschrift "les Nouvelles littéraires", der in der Nr. 1572 vom 17. 10. 1957 einen ausführlichen Artikel über die junge Schriftstellerin veröffentlichte.

        Typed Note from Ezra Pound to a signature collector [Who the blue hell..?] TOGETHER WITH an original Typed Letter from Pound's Doctor during his incarceration in Saint Elizabeth's Hospital

      Ezra Pound and others, 1957, 1958. First edition. Framed. Fine. An ORIGINAL TYPED NOTE from a cantankerous Ezra Pound in response to a request to sign books stating: "Who the blue hell do you expect to wrap parcels and carry 'em to the post office. ["?" added in pencil, presumably in Pound's hand] Are you literate AT LEAST to pt/ of having digested this series ?", including the original typed envelope addressed to "J.P. Murphey[sic]." Washington: 1957. The request for the signed books was made by inveterate autograph seeker James P. Murphy, who appears to have persisted in his quest for Pound's autograph. Also present is an ORIGINAL TYPED LETTER SIGNED to Murphy from Pound's "keeper," Dr. Winfred Overholser, Superintendent of Saint Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, D.C. [the mental hospital to which Pound was committed for twelve years after World War II] dated June 11, 1958 stating in part: "In reply to your note, I may say that Mr. Ezra Pound was discharged from this hospital last month. We do not have his present address." Dr. Overholser then suggests that Murphy contact New Directions, Pound's Publisher -- with the original envelope. With three photographs clipped from Humphrey Carpenter's biography of Pound, A Serious Character (1988). The whole mounted and framed, measuring approximately 17.5" x 16.25". A nice assemblage of Pound and Pound-related items, including an ORIGINAL TYPED NOTE FROM EZRA POUND.

        Relative state formulation of quantum mechanics," in Reviews of Modern Physics, 29, 1957, 454-462

      - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF HUGH EVERETT'S FAMOUS "MANY-WORLD INTERPRETATION" OF QUANTUM MECHANICS, an interpretation in which (to use Schrodinger's thought experiment) the universe splits in two: in one view we see a cat, in another we see ourselves seeing the cat. Though Everett's ideas remain controversial, they have been accepted in some form by many prominent physicists, among them Hawking and Feynman. Everett was fascinated by many of the paradoxes seemingly inherent in traditional quantum theory (Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 152). He did not accept Bohr's "collapse of the wave-function;" whereas Schrodinger's thought experiment posited a cat both alive and dead until the opening of a box. Everett's theory splits the universe into two states: in one we see a cat; in another we see ourselves seeing the cat."In 1957, working under the direction of his Ph.D. supervisor John A. Wheeler, Everett produced a novel solution to the measurement problem of quantum mechanics. This problem is to explain how it is that quantum states in superpositions appear to experimenters who interact with them as if they have definite classical outcomes. Like many physicists, Everett was unhappy with the von Neumann collapse postulate and the arbitrary quantum classical divide, and he proposed that the simplest way to resolve the measurement problem was to suppose that reality is nothing more than a quantum wave function, and that wave function does not collapse. As Schrodinger emphasized, if classical measuring device interacts with a system that is in a superposition, the wave function of the measuring device (and the experimenter who runs it) becomes correlated with each component of the superposition. What bothered Schrodinger is that real observers do not see superpositions, but only definite results (such as either a definitely alive cat or a definitely dead cat). Everett's answer was simplicity itself: the observer together with his or her apparatus actually does split into two components (one who perceives a dead cat, the other who perceives a living cat) - but each version of the observer is correlated with the corresponding component of the cat. That is, the new state is a superposition of two states, one with an observer perceiving a live cat, and one with an observer perceiving a dead cat. Each observer seems to perceive a definite cat-state and not a superposition. However, these two components do not interact with each other in any way. It is exactly as if the universe has split in two. Every time one system becomes correlated with another system that is in a superposition, the world splits into as many versions as there are components of the observed system, and so on, ad infinitum. "Everett at first called his theory the relative state formulation of quantum mechanics. By this he meant that every observer could be in a number of different states, each one defined relative to a state of the system being measured. This later became known as the Many-Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics; [in] this view there literally is a colossal multiplicity of universes, multiplying exponentially or faster into more universes, with each universe playing out every possibility that is consistent with the laws of physics" (ibid, 152-153). CONDITION & DETAILS: Original wraps. Lancaster: American Physical Society. Volume 29, Number 3, July 1957. (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). This is not an ex-libris copy, thus there are no markings whatsoever; no writing or ownership marks at all. Near fine condition inside and out.

Some general extremity wear to binder, with slightly bumped corners. Occasional dust soiling. Minor foxing. Overall VG, with cloth samples generally VG+ to Nr Fine, with the occasional crease to the odd sample or two.. 104 pp, printed in red on stiff-stock paper. 16 color fashion drawings; 897 [of 898], tipped-in fabric samples. Folio. 16-1/4" x 12-1/8" An exceedingly scarce and beautiful salesman sample catalogue issued by the Societe Paritys, noted supplier of fabrics and haberdashery for haute couture and ready to wear fashions in mid-century Paris. The 1950s were a decisive period for French fashion, and reflected the dynamic fashion designs of Pierre Balmain, Christian Dior, Jacques Griffe, Hubert de Givenchy, and Pierre Cardin. Founded in 1946, the Paritys had moved rapidly into supplying fabrics for not only French fashion houses, but also worked to meet the demands of the burgeoning ready-to-wear movement, represented by Jacques Fath, Robert Piguet, Paquin, Carven, and Jean Desses. The designs and fabrics for this summer catalogue display the heavy influence of Dior reflecting his ideals of full skirts & hourglass silhouettes, with percale, bustier-style bodices, hip padding, wasp-shaped dresses,  as well as the flowing excess of fabrics in his designs. Dior considered the 1950s to be the Golden Age of Couture, and the drawings herein definitely express his influence on feminine fashion.  This lavish display of mid-century fabrics include beautifully woven cotton & linen blends, silk blends, mohair, tweeds silk mohair blends, nylons, Lebotys rayons, satins, percales, laces and much more.  Of particular interest are the designs and samples for wedding dresses.   No copies located on OCLC, nor the major French institutions (as searched on KVK).

        Autograph Letter Signed on personal 4to letterhead with the town of "Corona" California crossed out and replaced with "Box 266 Monrovia," January 3, 1957

      - To Mr. Greenfield regarding "J.L." and Sinclair's book "The Cup of Fury." J.L. refers to Jack London, one of the writers Sinclair discusses in his book. Regarding "J.L.," "To the public he is a romantic figure & has to be that to sell the book. But to me he is an alcoholic tragedy. I have made him a leading figure in 'The Cup of Fury'." Sinclair discusses the book, saying, "A score of NY publishers said it wouldn't sell & I had to go to a church group. They have sold 65000 copies. I send you my 'Didymus' of which also US publishers are afraid. It has been published with success in London, Paris." He signs, "U. Sinclair." "The Cup of Fury" was published in 1956; it is an attack on alcohol, the tragic stories of talented American writers whose drinking destroyed them and caused grief to others, people like Jack London, O. Henry, Sinclair Lewis, Edna St. Vincent Millay and Dylan Thomas. Sinclair also refers to another book, "Didymus." He is talking about the book "What Didymus Did," published in the UK in 1954, which would, in 1958, be published in the US as "It Happened to Didymus." In 1919, he published the muckraking exposé about "yellow" journalism, "The Brass Check," revealing the limitations of the "free press" in the United States. Four years later, the first code of ethics for journalists was created. Sinclair also ran unsuccessfully for Congress as a Socialist, and was the Democratic Party nominee for Governor of California in 1934.

        HERE Is The SPECTACULAR 1958 CHEVROLET. A Car that Beautifully Captures the Flair of Contemporary Living. Lower and Longer, Wider and Stronger. Truly a Giant Step Forward in Motoring!

      Chevrolet Motor Division, General Motors Corporation, Detroit, MI 1957 - 95, [5 (Chevrolet Specificiations)] pp. Fabric and Color Booklet unpaginated. Over 200 color illustrations, color plates (some double-page), text illustrations, diagrams; 28 printed colour paint sample combinations (5 x 8.75 in.) spiral bound bound side-by-side w/ 11 leaves on thick stock (6.25 x 8.75 in.), and 104 interior upholstery color samples and combinations spiral bound as well, both mounted on back pastedown to fold-out when opened. Oblong format: 10" x 13-3/8" A scarce Dealer?s showroom sample catalogue for the 1958 Chevrolet passenger cars. These included Corvettes, Impalas, Bel Airs, Biscaynes, Nomad Station Wagons, Brookwood Station Wagons, Delray models, and the Yeoman Station Wagons. The 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air, Chevrolet Delray, and Biscayne were better as well as bigger than the 1957 models, leaning more toward luxury. Quad headlights, the low silhouette which was nine inches longer and five inches lower, a stretched wheelbase, and heavier by 200 to 300 pounds. For the first time, the full size cars were offered with bigger engines than the Corvette, so the low-budget Delray could be powered with a 348, the forerunner to the iconic 409. The Impala was introduced in 1958 as a high-performance, high luxury trim option for the Bel Air, with big fins, quad headlights, and six tail lamps along with a lot of chrome. In 1959, the Impala was entirely redesigned, so the 1958 model year was unique. The 1958 Corvette featured hood louvers and twin trunk spears as well as a new steering wheel and dashboard.No institutional holdings located on OCLC. Rare. Significant wear and rubbing to binder, soiling to pastedowns on inside of binder covers, as well as a blue crayoned "#1" to inside front cover. Overall a Good+ example. Color illustrated, paper covered 19-ring binder. Graduated thumb tabs divide sections at fore-edge. Metal spiral notebook in rear of "Colors" for the automobiles (fabric sample notebook attached to binder). Stiff-stock color illustrated paper
