        On The Road

      New York: Viking Press, 1957.. New York: Viking Press, 1957. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Very good in the original dust jacket which has had some profesional restoration. What makes this copy interesting, is that it is from Columbia University Library Lending Service. It was taken out between Sep 11, 57 and ended Dec 3, 1957. The slip on the reverse is the only library mark. Kerouac came to Columbia on a football scholarship. In reality, though, he had been recruited by more football-friendly Boston College, and chose Columbia for its New York literary connections instead. He turned fully to writing after a broken leg in 1940, his first year"(New York Times). He enjoyed Professors Mark Van Doren and Raymond Weaver, and got an A in Van Doren's Shakespeare class. The raucous, exuberant, often wildly funny account of a journey through America and Mexico, Jack Kerouac's On the Road instantly defined a generation on its publication in 1957: it was, in the words of a New York Times reviewer, "the clearest and most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as 'beat.'" Written in the mode of ecstatic improvisation that Allen Ginsberg described as "spontaneous bop prosody," Kerouac's novel remains electrifying in its thirst for experience and its defiant rebuke of American conformity. In his portrayal of the fervent relationship between the writer Sal Paradise and his outrageous, exasperating, and inimitable friend Dean Moriarty, Kerouac created one of the great friendships in American literature; and his rendering of the cities and highways and wildernesses that his characters restlessly explore are a hallucinatory travelogue of a nation he both mourns and celebrates. "On the Road has become a classic of the Beat Movement with its stream-of-consciousness depiction of the rejection of mainstream American values set in a physical and metaphysical journey across America" (Book in America, 136).

      Collins/The Crime Club, 1957. Collins/The Crime Club, 1957. 1st edition. Hardcover. Bright red boards with black lettering. Slight offsetting on the endpapers, with a surname on the fep. The pages have some small, very occasional spots, slightly more so on the first and last few leaves; the front and lower text blocks are slightly spotted.

        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. Withal, very good condition.& &
