        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: Lancaster: American Physical Society. Volume 29, Number 3, July 1957. Very small ex-libris stamp on the front wrap. 4to. (10 .5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Original paper wraps with slight aging and soiling. Very good condition. The interior is pristine.

        Prediche de Fra Ruberto. [=Sermones quadragesimales de poenitentia, in Italian].(Colophon: Venice, Tommaso di Piasi, 13 August 1493). 4to. With open spaces left for initials, most with simple and informal pen-written (rather than drawn) capitals in brown ink. Set in a "Venetian"-style roman type. Brown blind-tooled morocco (ca. 1910) by the ROWFANT Bindery in Cleveland, Ohio, established by the finisher Léon Maillard as successor to the Club Bindery in New York, gold triple fillets on the turn-ins, marbled endpapers.

      GW 6106 (2 copies); ISTC ic00158600 (8 copies); not in BSB; for the Rowfant Bindery: Holmes, Story of the Rowfant Bindery (1957). Very rare incunable edition, in Italian, of the 49 penitential Lenten or Fasten sermons by the Franciscan preacher Roberto Caracciolo (1425-1495), Bishop of Aquino, and of Lecce. Caracciolus (d. 1475) was the most celebrated preacher in Italy during the last half of the 15th century. Called a "second Paul", the "new Paul", and the "prince of preachers", he was able to arouse his listeners to sometimes unseemly levels of emotion. Partly for that reason, he was a controversial figure among the Franciscans of his time. Lamenting the dearth of fine binders in America, members of the Grolier Club in New York established The Club Bindery in 1898, bringing over the Frenchman Léon Maillard (d. 1921), "thought by some to have been the premier finisher of his time" (www.grolierclub.org). When the bindery closed in 1909, Maillard set up the Rowfant Bindery in Cleveland, which operated only from 1909 to 1913. With owner's entries, early marginal annotations and an early manuscript table of contents. With water stains throughout but otherwise generally in good condition. The binding has a small tear at the head of the spine but is otherwise in very good condition. A few manuscript notes have been shaved. A rare incunable containing very popular sermons, bound by the short-lived Rowfant Bindery.

Rosalind Franklin, whose X-ray photographs of DNA were crucial to Watson and Crick&#39;s discovery of the molecule&#39;s double helix structure in 1953, began researching the molecular structure of selected plant viruses after moving from King&#39;s College to Birkbeck College in mid-1953. She was aided in this work by Aaron Klug, who would later win the 1982 Nobel Prize in chemistry for developing crystallographic electron microscopy and for elucidating the structure of biologically important nucleic acid-protein complexes. The two began investigating the structure of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), making several important discoveries regarding the arrangement of the virus&#39;s protein subunits and RNA strand; later in their researches Klug and Franklin agreed to divide the work, with Franklin taking on TMV and other rod-shaped plant viruses, and Klug concentrating on spherical plant viruses such as turnip yellow mosaic virus (TYMV).

        SAINT JOAN (1957)

      United Artists 1957 - Vintage original 81 x 81" (205 x 205 cm.) six sheet poster, USA, Jean Seberg, Richard Widmark, Richard Todd, John Gielgud, dir: Otto Preminger; United Artists. A truly spectacular presentation of Saul Bass' brilliant art. Preminger loved Bass' artistic interpretations of the films he directed, and so Bass executed the campaign art for nearly all of the director's films starting in the mid 1950s. This is the story of Joan of Arc, her leadership of the French Army against the British, the many battles she wins and then being branded a witch once she is no longer needed. Jean Seberg (at 18) was selected after a highly publicized contest to play the title character. The film was based on the George Bernard Shaw play with a great screenplay by Graham Greene. This large-format version of Saul Bass' famous design is terribly rare, and most impressive, with its vivid colors. On linen, NEAR FINE.
