        Theory of Superconductivity

      Physical Review,,, Lancaster, Pa 1957 - FIRST PRINTING in original wrappers of arguably the most important paper in the field of superconductivity.

The issues with the original letters are also included in the original wrappers, making this a scarce complete set of the full published account of one of the defining moments in modern physics. "The basis for all later theoretical work in superconductivity" (Britannica). IN: The Physical Review, Second Series, Vol. 108, No. 5, p.1175-1204. Lancaster, PA, 1957. The complete issue in original blue printed wrappers. WITH: The Physical Review, Second Series, Vol. 104, No. 4 and Vol. 106, No.1, both in original wrappers. Custom half-leather box. In exceptional condition with only very light wear to wrappers. Provenance: from the library of the Danish physicist Christian Møller (the author of "The Theory of Relativity"), with his name written in hand on the front wrapper.

        An archive of 6 autograph letters signed to book illustrator and friend Don Freeman, 1956-1957, and academic Frank Stirling

      N.p., N.p. 1957 - An archive of 6 autograph letters signed by Kenneth Millar (a.k.a. Ross Macdonald), 4 to book illustrator, longtime friend, and Santa Barbara neighbor Don Freeman, and 2 to an old professor and mentor from Ontario, Frank Stirling.A fascinating and unique collection of correspondence from Millar, full of personal inquiries, casual observations, and progress reports on children and mutual friends. Important, however, is a subtext regarding the author's ongoing psychoanalysis and the effect it was having on his life and work: "Heavens, you'd think from that remark that I was being analyzed. [I am] rediscovering the country of my childhood which isn't so very different from adult country, as Salinger people like you would be the first to agree. I'd say I'm well on through into the middle of it, too, and just wrote a good book ["The Galton Case"] quite fast by way of proving it." And again, "I suppose my best personal news is that the effect of analysis (I'm approaching termination) has been to reawaken, by some of the most extraordinary experiences, my interest in writing poetry, and I've come back after twenty years not with a whimper but a bang." The 2 letters to Frank Stirling come just before and just after a trip that reunited Millar with his old friend, respectively, and say much about the author's frustrations over trying to express himself in a literary fashion within the restrictions of the crime fiction genre.More than 2500 words in all, with each letter signed, "Ken." An intimate set of documents revealing much about a very private man, today a legend in the pantheon of literary crime fiction. Near Fine, onionskin stock, each letter dated with the author's address in Menlo Park. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        THE BLACK FLAME: A Trilogy - The Ordeal of Mansart, Mansart Builds a School, and Worlds of Color

      New York: Mainstream Publishers, 1957. Book. Hardcover. Inscribed by Author(s). First Edition. Three volume set. New York: Mainstream Publishers, 1957, 1959, and 1961. First editions. An epic trilogy, described by its author as a fiction of interpretation. Acting as a representative biography of African American history, The Black Flame follows one man, Manuel Mansart, from birth in 1876 until his death. William Edward Burghardt Du Bois (1868-1963), an American sociologist and historian, was the most important black protest leader in the United States during the first half of the 20th century. He shared in the creation of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909 and edited The Crisis, its magazine, from 1910 to 1934. The United States' Civil Rights Act, embodying many of the reforms for which Du Bois had campaign his entire life, was enacted a year after his death. Presentation copy, inscribed and dated by Du Bois to "The Bells" on the front flyleaf in the first volume. In 1916, Thomas Bell, M.D., and his wife Pearl moved from Tennessee to Brooklyn, New York, where they shared a two family house with Du Bois and his family. Dr. Bell and Du Bois developed a strong friendship during this time and the families remained close for years. The Bells settled in Newark, New Jersey, in 1922. Du Bois remained a frequent guest in the Bells' house, and was godfather to the Bells' youngest daughter, Thomasina. The papers of the Bells' eldest daughter, Katherine Bell Banks, which document this friendship, are at the University of Massachusetts Amherst Libraries. Octavo. Original green cloth bindings, with gilt titles. Light foxing to the endpapers and edges of the third volume. Mild wear to the corners and tips. The dust jacket of the second volume is price-clipped. Some general rubbing shelfwear to the dust jackets, including small chips and tears, and a few faint stains..

        Gay Bar [Limited Edition, Signed]

      Pan-Graphic Press, San Francisco 1957 - Memoir of gay bar owner Helen Branson, whose bar "Helen's" was a San Francisco institution and a crucible for the nascent Gay Rights movement. A valuable picture of gay life at a time when homosexuality was still a forbidden topic for discussion or publication in the United States. This was the first production of the Pan-Graphic Press, which also published the seminal gay journal Mattachine Review. In James T. Sears' history of the Mattachine Press, he mentions the first printing for Gay Bar consisting of 1600 copies, with 500 sold prior to publication; we suspect these were likely the "Author's Edition," which would likely have been sold to friends and patron's of Branson's bar. A genuinely scarce title; we find no copies in the trade (2014), and OCLC notes fewer than 2 dozen institutional holdings. YOUNG 295. Author's Limited Premiere Edition, this being copy no.410. Slim octavo (21.5cm); blue cloth, with titles stamped in lime green on spine and front panel; dustjacket; 89pp. Inscribed by Branson on the limitation page: "Regards, Helen P. Branson / Hollywood 1957." Contemporary owner's name and date to front endpaper, with faint trace of foxing to text edges; very Near Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $3.00), with light, scattered foxing and a few small stains to panels; Very Good+. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Statistical Theory of Equations of State and Phase Transitions. I. Theory of Condensation" and "Statistical Theory of Equations of State and Phase Transitions. II. Lattice Gas and Ising Model" in The Physical Review, Volume 87, Number 3, August 1, 1952, pp. 404-409, pp. 410-419

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS of the first full version (both parts one and two) of the Lee-Yang theorem, two "seminal papers that became classics in the field of statistical mechanics" (Hu, Yang-Lee-Fisher Zeros). Yang and Lee state "that if partition functions of certain models in statistical field theory with ferromagnetic interactions are considered as functions of an external field, then all zeros are purely imaginary (or on the unit circle after a change of variable)" (Wikipedia). The first paper "proposed a general theory of phase transitions by studying the distribution of the roots of the grand partition function, thenceforth known as 'Yang-Lee zeroes.' The second paper applied the general theory to the lattice gas and the Ising model and obtained the famous 'Lee-Yang circle theorem'" (Hu).& & Lee and Yang's papers were "the dream of physicist's life-time accomplishment" (Zhu, Lee-Yang theorem, MIT). They provided a "new way of looking at the nature of phase transitions and suggested that... partition functions as functions of external fields (in the case of Ising model, this would be magnetic fields), whose domains can be extended to the complex plane" (ibid). & & Tsung-Dao Lee and Chen-Ning Franklin Yang are Chinese born American physicists. They were jointly awarded the 1957 Nobel Prize in Physics for their theory that weak force interactions among elementary particles did not conserve parity (spatial symmetry). CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Institute of Physics. 4to. 10.5 x 7.75 inches (262 x 194mm). Bound in original wraps rebacked. Very faint library stamps on the front and rear wrap as well as the first page; literally the stamps are very difficult to even see. Otherwise fine condition in every way.

        ZORRO: Two Original Shooting Scripts (Two Original Propmaster-Annotated Scripts from the Original 1957 Television Series)

      Burbank, CA: Walt Disney Productions, 1957. McCulley, Johnston (Walt Disney). ZORRO: Two original shooting scripts from the 1957 Zorro television series (Episodes #2 and #22) starring Guy Williams. Burbank, CA: Walt Disney Productions, 1957-8. Each 35+ pages long (including revised pages), each mimeographed and bound in blue studio wrappers; further, instead of being brad-bound, they are held together by rawhide ties, unusual and delightfully in keeping with the show's theme. These scripts (credited to Antony Ellis and H. B. Stone) were owned by the show's prop-master (a close friend of Guy Williams) and come with a detailed letter of provenance indicating that they were in his possession until sold in 1995 to a collector -- along with Guy Williams' best fighting sword (not included here, alas). The letter is quite worth reading as it gives excellent background material re: provenance. The two scripts are both heavily annotated with dozens of pages marked up in different colored pens by ZORRO's prop-master. There were 78 Zorro episodes produced during 1957-1958 yet few original scripts have survived; one reason suggested by research is that during the 1950s, script distribution for TV programs was far more limited and kept in-house than widely distributed as are the TV scripts of today. These scripts are entitled "Zorro's Secret Passage" (the 2nd episode ever filmed) and "The Unmasking of Zorro" (the 22nd episode). Despite Disney's ZORRO being an iconic character with timeless popularity, there are few opportunities for the collector to obtain genuine original pop cultural artifacts with this kind of importance and direct connection to the source. . Signed. First Edition. Printed Wrappers. Near Fine.
