        Superfluidity and Superconductivity" [Feynman's Only Paper on Superconductivity, pp. 205-213] WITH International Congress on Theoretical Physics Papers [Entire Issue] in Reviews of Modern Physics, Volume 29, Number 2, April, 1957, pp. 159-254

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PRINTED WRAPS OF FEYNMAN'S ONLY PAPER ON SUPERCONDUCTIVITY IN PRISTINE CLAMSHELL CASE. Feynman's work did not unravel the mysteries of superconductivity, but it significantly impacted all work in the field, including the eventual and seminal BCS Theory "'in which electrons, through interaction with lattice vibrations, form Cooper pairs, which move in a coordinated manner, rather than randomly as in a normal conductor, allowing electricity to flow with no resistance'" (APS Physics). Feynman's paper was first a lecture at the International Congress on Theoretical Physics held in Seattle in September 1956. This issue is entirely dedicated to the work presented at the congress and, apart from the Feynman, is inclusive of an important series of papers. It is worth noting that the congress took place and this journal was printed just prior to Bardeen, Cooper, and Schrieffer's announcement of their fully developed theory in December of 1957. Superconductivity, for Feynman, was "the one that got away" (Krauss, Quantum Man, 189). Though he spent much of the early 1950s working on it, he never succeeded in the type of breakthrough that the work of BCS yielded. That said, their approach to explaining the phenomenon, "borrowed heavily from the ideas [Feynman] introduced to study the properties of materials in general, and specifically, the ideas he developed to explain superfluidity" (ibid). Feynman's space-time approach to understanding the properties of electrons in materials "turned out to be of crucial importance in understanding the interactions that allow electron pairs to bind together and condense in a superconductor" (ibid). A year before Schrieffer et al., cracked the problem of superconductivity, Schrieffer sat in an audience listening to Feynman talk about both superfluidity and superconductivity. While that lecture was never printed, it was a less-detailed version of the lecture/paper offered here. Schrieffer "was fascinated to hear Feynman talk in great detail about his own ideas about superconductivity that went wrong. [Schrieffer and his teams] approach to understanding superconductivity was to figure out, just as Feynman had, how a Bose-Einstein-like condensate could form, in this case for particles like electrons that were not bosons. Equally important was demonstrating, as Feynman had… that there was an energy gap between the ground state and the excited states, so that at low energies, collisions which otherwise produce excitations that dissipate energy could not occur" (ibid). Feynman's work also greatly impacted that of Alexei Abrikosov as well. Abrikosov would later win the Nobel Prize for showing that "one can force magnetic field lines through a superconductor, but they too will permeate the superconductor in thin vortex lines" (ibid). In his Nobel address, Abrikosov said that he had initially put his original proposal for this work in a drawer "because Landau didn't think much of it. It was only after learning about Feynman's thoughts about rotational vortices in superfluids that [he] had the courage to publish his ideas on magnetic vortices. Feynman's foray into condensed matter physics was thus remarkable not just for the manner in which his intuition led to key insights, but by the way in which… his imprint on the field was demonstrable" (ibid). Still Feynman was human. He had worked so hard on superconductivity that he later said, "I developed an emotional block against the problem of superconductivity, so that when I learned about the BCS paper I could not bring myself to read it for a long time' (APS). Issue includes important contributions by Bargmann, Weisskopf, Jensen, Mottelson, Lane, van Hove, Yukawa, Low, Michel, Yang, Morrison, and Salpeter. CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to. Original printed wraps; pristine maroon clamshell case. Very slight scuffing and crease at the edges of the wraps; very slight spotting where staples appear to have bled through. (See photo).

        Rahel Varnhagen.

      London: published for the Leo Baeck Institute of Jews from Germany by the East and West Library,, 1957. The Life of a Jewess. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt. With the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece. Spine and extremities bleached, spine ends a little bumped, dust jacket extremities lightly rubbed and with a few nicks, jacket spine faded, lower front panel marked, tape repair to inner spine, a very good copy. First edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed by the author, "For Harry Zohn, cordially, Cambridge, April 6, 1967". This is the German-born Jewish political theorist's first commercially published book which she began writing in the late 1920s, translated from the German by Richard and Clara Winston. It was nearly complete when Arendt was forced to leave Germany, and she did not return to her project until nearly two decades later, at which point much of the archival material she had planned to consult had been destroyed. It is both a biography of the German-Jewish writer Rahel Levin (1771-1833) and a more general "contribution to the history of the German Jews" (dust jacket blurb). Levin was well-known to many of the key figures of the German Romantic movement, who often met each other at her Berlin salon: regulars included Friedrich Gentz, Motte Fouqué, Schlegel, Schelling, and Steffens. She was introduced to Goethe in 1795. Harry Zohn (1923-2001) was an educator, writer and translator of important works of German literature. He and Arendt collaborated on an edition of Walter Benjamin's Illuminations (1968), which she edited and he translated. They began corresponding with each other about this project in February 1967 and Zohn had the translation ready for Arendt's arrival in Cambridge, where they met on 6 April.

        Jacqueline Kennedy Quotation of Robert Frost.

      - Jacqueline Kennedy hand writes the first lines from the Robert Frost poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. From the collection of Mary Gallagher, who was the personal secretary to Jacqueline Kennedy from 1957 to 1964, which includes the Kennedy presidency. Before that, she was Senator John F. Kennedy's secretary and worked briefly for Jackie's mother. Robert Frost was one of President and Mrs. Kennedy's favorite poets. He was invited to present two of his poems at the Kennedy Inauguration on January 20, 1961. Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening is perhaps his best known work; and Frost himself admitted that it was "my best bid for remembrance." Mrs. Kennedy slightly misquotes the three concluding lines, "For I have promises to keep And miles to go before I sleep And miles to go before I sleep." Jacqueline wrote them on Mary Gallagher's shorthand notebook in her new home in Georgetown, in 1964, where she moved to after leaving the White House. Gallagher further explains in her affidavit: "This happened to be but one of the many poems that [Mrs. Kennedy] had chosen daily from little stacks of books in which she had placed paper markers to designate the pages that had the various passages for me to type up over the next few weeks. As she explained, they were 'for the fund-raising dinner in New York on the 16th, to be recited by Frederic March.' The poem was recited by March at the Kennedy Library dinner and the Democratic Convention that same year. Matted and framed opposite a photograph of President and Mrs. Kennedy and Robert Frost.

        Mir Gribov [The World of Mushrooms]

      Moscow: Izdatel’stvo “Detskii Mir” 1957 - SCARCE First and Only Edition. Illustrated by Tatiana Mavrina. [12]pp. Original colour illustrated wraps. Full page colour illustrations throughout. Minor even toning to paper stock, light shallow creasing, mild nudging to corners, mild rubbing to edges. Light even toning, rubbing to wraps, light shallow creasing, rubbing to edges separation to foot, cap of spine. From the 1930’s, at the beginning of what would be a huge career spanning the Soviet period, Tatiana Mavrina was, to say the least, prolific during her time as an illustrator. The fingermarks and minor creasing shows the time that this book spent in the hands of children, yet it is remarkably intact. What is even more so is the lines and colours before she was to fully embrace the style that would make of her a household name. Not recorded on worldcat. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
