        Travels With Charley: In Search of America.

      New York: The Viking Press,, 1962. Octavo. Original cream speckled cloth, spine lettered in red and black, vignette to the front board in red, top edge orange, others untrimmed, map endpapers. With the dust jacket, housed in a custom quarter morocco and marbled paper-covered solander box. A fine copy in the jacket with small closed tear to the foot of front and rear flap folds, and head of rear panel, mark to front flap. First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed by the author to the half-title, "Dear Norman: with many thanks, Sincerely John Steinbeck, May '63". While we cannot be sure, a number of Norman's suggest themselves; Norman Rockwell, Steinbeck's tenth cousin, one time removed, Norman Mailer, who claimed Steinbeck's writing "formed the desire to be a major writer", or Norman Carlson, to whom Steinbeck presented an inscribed edition of The Grapes of Wrath in 1941. This work is based on Steinbeck's road trip around the States in 1960 accompanied by his poodle, Charley.

        Catch-22

      London Jonathan Cape 1962 First Impression (no further printings noted). 8vo: 6],443,[1]pp. Publisher's red cloth, spine stamped in gilt (still brillant), top edge stained green; second-state dust jacket (with blurbs from four authors and the New York Times on back panel), illustrated by Germano Facetti and priced 21s. Almost Fine (faded top edge, spotted fore- and bottom edges), in about Fine jacket (dust-soiled back panel and spine-panel folds). (Time 100) Fine- The catch-22 in Heller's debut novel (in which, incidentally, the phrase was coined), set in the closing months of World War II, is that "anyone who wants to get out of combat duty isn't really crazy." Hence, pilots who request a mental-fitness evaluation are sane, and therefore must fly in combat. At the same time, if an evaluation is not requested by the pilot, he will never receive one and thus can never be found insane, in which case he must also fly in combat. That's the catch. According to Wikipedia, the number has no particular significance; it was chosen, by Heller and his publishers, for euphony. Time called the novel a "bitter, anguished joke . . . that embraces the existential absurdity of war without ever quite succumbing to it." N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Symmetries of Baryons and Mesons

      Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: American Inst, 1962. FIRST EDITION of Murray Gell-Mann's Nobel-Prize winning work on the discovery of the "Eightfold Way" "Gell-Mann, as naturalist, collector, and categorizer, was well primed to interpret the exploding particle universe of the 1960s. New technology in the accelerators- liquid hydrogen bubble chambers and computers for automating the analysis of collision tracks- seemed to have spilled open a bulky canvas bag from which nearly a hundred distinct particles had now tumbled forth. Gell-Mann and, independently, an Israeli theorist, Yuval Ne'eman, found a way in 1961 to organize the various symmetries of spins and strangeness into a single scheme. It was a group, in the mathematicians' sense of the word, known as SU(3), though Gell-Mann quickly and puckishly dubbed it the Eightfold Way. It was like an intricate translucent object which, when held to the light, would reveal families of eight or ten or possibly twenty-seven particles- and they would be different, though overlapping, families, depending on which way one chose to view it. The Eightfold Way was a new periodic table- the previous century's triumph in classifying and thus exposing the hidden regularities in a similar number of disparate 'elements.' But it was also a more dynamic object. The operations of group theory were like special shuffles of a deck of cards or the twists of a Rubik's cube."Much of SU(3)'s power came from the way it embodied a concept increasingly central to the high-energy theorist's way of working: the concept of inexact symmetry, almost symmetry, near symmetry, or- the term that won out- broken symmetry. The particle world was full of near misses in its symmetries, a dangerous problem, since it seemed to permit an ad hoc escape route whenever an expected relationship failed to match. Broken symmetry implied a process, a change in status... Many of the broken symmetries of particle physics came to seem like choices the universe made when it condensed from a hot chaos into cooler matter, spiked as it is with so many hard-edged, asymmetrical contingencies."Once again Gell-Mann trusted his scheme enough to predict, as a consequence of broken symmetry, a specific hitherto-unseen particle. This, the omega minus, duly turned up in 1964- a thirty-three-experimenter team had to canvass more than one million feet of photographs- and Gell-Mann's Nobel Prize followed five years later" (James Gleick, Genius).Particle Physics, One Hundred Years of Discoveries: "Introduction of the SU(3) singlet-octet structure of the known mesons and octet-decuplet structure for the baryons. Prediction of the ?- hyperon. Nobel prize to M. Gell-Mann awarded in 1969 'for his contributions and discoveries concerning the classification of elementary particles and their reactions'." NOTE: Gell-Mann first introduced the concept of the Eightfold Way in a 1961 Cal. Inst. Tech Report (CTSL-20) before developing his ideas more fully in his famous paper in The Physical Review.In: The Physical Review, Vol 125, pp. 1067-1084. Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: American Institute of Physics, 1962. Quarto, original printed wrappers; custom box. A little spotting to spine, otherwise fine. Fine.

First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed by the author to the half-title, "Dear Norman: with many thanks, Sincerely John Steinbeck, May '63". While we cannot be sure, a number of Norman's suggest themselves; Norman Rockwell, Steinbeck's tenth cousin, one time removed, Norman Mailer, who claimed Steinbeck's writing "formed the desire to be a major writer", or Norman Carlson, to whom Steinbeck presented an inscribed edition of The Grapes of Wrath in 1941. This work is based on Steinbeck's road trip around the States in 1960 accompanied by his poodle, Charley. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
