        Theory and History: An Interpretation of Social and Economic Evolution

Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelf wear. Theory and History discusses the theory of economics, the study of purposive human action, and with history, the record of the past actions of individuals. All actions are determined by ideas. Thoughts and ideas are "real things," Mises writes. "Although intangible and immaterial, they are factors in bringing about changes in the realm, of tangible and material things." Rather than rejecting the study of historical change as a "useless pastime," Mises considers it of the utmost practical importance. "History looks backward into the past, but the lesson it teaches concerns things to come.

        Synthesis of the Elements in Stars" in Reviews of Modern Physics 29, October 1957, pp. 547-650

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS of a seminal 100+ page paper that "describes hydrogen and helium are formed in the interior of stars" (Daintith, Oxford Dictionary of Scientists, 268). This paper, widely considered "one of the most authoritative and comprehensive works of modern science" is so famous that it is commonly referred to simply as B2FH after the initials of its authors (ibid). B2FH is credited with originating what is now known as the theory of stellar nucleosynthesis. An often quoted statement of Carl Sagan, "We are all star stuff," is simply his paraphrase of this review paper's thesis (ibid). B2FH predicted the chemical evolution of the universe testable through stellar spectral line emulsions, using this to illustrate the possibility that all heavy earth elements in face originate from the furnace-like cores of nearby extinct solar phenomena. CONDITION & DETAILS: "Synthesis of the Elements in Stars" in Reviews of Modern Physics 29, October 1957, pp. 547-650. Quarto (1.5 x 7.75 inches; 263 x 194mm). Original wraps. Bears the ownership signature of Herbert Conrad 'Hobey' De Staebler at the head of the front wrap. De Staebler was an important member of the experimental program at High Energy Physics Laboratory at Stanford. Additionally, Energies of Nuclei is written on the spine. Slightly faded at the spine.

        A THEORY OF THE CONSUMPTION FUNCTION

      Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1957.. Princeton:: Princeton University Press,. 1957. First edition. A study for the National Bureau of Economic Research, where Friedman worked at the time. He set forth the permanent income hypothesis, a theory of consumption that assumes rational behavior by agents. In its simplest form, the hypothesis states that a change in permanent income, rather than a change in temporary income, affects the choices that determine a consumer's consumption patterns. The key conclusion of this theory is that transitory, temporary changes in income have little effect on consumer spending behavior, whereas permanent changes can have large effects on consumer spending behavior. 243 pages, including an index. 36 Figures and tables. Dark blue cloth, gilt-lettered spine. Small stamp on front endpaper ("Industrial Relations Department 1957"), otherwise bright and fine in a bright, near fine dust jacket with just one small tear, a few tiny marks and the spine slightly sunned. A very nice copy of a relatively scarce book by a recipient of the 1976 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, who was known for his research on consumption analysis, monetary history and theory, and the complexity of stabilization policy. The Economist described him as "the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th century ... possibly of all of it."

Ich kenne das Haus; - es ist da, wo ich auch mal mieten wollte u. wo oben im Apartment der Greta Keller die Margot v. Opel lebt. Ein Freund von mir lebte lange im Penthause nebenan [...] Es ging mir gut. Ich war nicht allein. Und es war schön. Ich habe meine Arbeit zwar vernachlässigt, aber zum erstenmale sang jemand - nach vielen Jahren - u. lachte im Hause herum, schwamm u. war ganz da. Es war nicht schwer, anderes zu vergessen. Was man nicht vergißt, ist man selbst, - aber darüber lächelt man auch, wenn soviel Leben u. Da-Sein um einen herumbebt u. leuchtet [...]" (Br. v. 8. Oktober 1957). - "Eine neue Füllfeder einschreiben (die alte, 10 Jahre treue ist endlich entschlafen) ist ein solches Kreuz, daß man entschuldigt ist zu schreiben. Außerdem (Glück! Hurra!) werden unsere Briefe kürzer u. in größeren Abständen (nicht ein Zeichen, daß wir uns nicht so viel zu sagen haben, wohl aber, daß unsere sogenannte Liebe langsam ausgehungert wird!)[.] Nichts passiert, also ist auch weniger zu schreiben, u. auch weniger zu denken [...] Der Vogel ist entweder glücklich u. beschäftigt oder wartet in Ruhe bis ich zurückkomme. Eine Hellseherin hier hat mir überraschende Dinge gesagt: Der Vogel habe eine Affaire, sei selbst der ag[g]ressive Teil, der andere sei vorsichtig, wolle nichts riskieren [...]" (undat. Brief). - "[...] Ich fahre morgen, Montag abend, nach P[orto] R[onco] u. werde dort gleich anfangen zu arbeiten. Ich bin ungeduldig, es zu tun, da die letzten Wochen es wieder unterbrochen hatten, u. ich will das Buch fertig mitbringen. Ich will auch keine weiteren Nachrichten über den Vogel hören, - höchstens, wenn - nein, nur, wenn sie mich beruhigen oder vorbereiten können auf irgend eine Attacke. Versuche auch nicht, herauszufinden, ob u. wann sie reist [...]" (undat. Brief aus [Paris] auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Vignette des Hotel Lancaster). - Zwei Briefe auf dünnem Luftpostpapier, einer davon stärker knittrig und mit stärkeren Randläsuren.
