        The Spy Who Loved Me.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1962 - Octavo. Original dark grey boards, spine lettered in silver, dagger design to front board in silver and blind, red endpapers. With the dust jacket. Spine cocked; an excellent copy in the jacket that has a slightly soiled rear panel. First edition, first impression. The tenth James Bond book. In many ways this is one of the most ambitious of Fleming's Bond books. It purports to be the first hand testimony of a 23 year-old Canadian woman with whom Bond has an ill-fated affair. In time-honoured literary tradition Fleming claims to have been sent Michel's manuscript account of which he is merely the editor. Michel therefore gets a spurious credit as co-author on the title page. This novel is the only Bond book to be written in the first person. Not common in such nice condition. Gilbert A10a (1.1).

        Symmetries of Baryons and Mesons

      American Institute of Physics, Lancaster, PA 1962 - First Edition. [2], 1130 pages. Light brown buckram binding with gilt spine lettering, bumped at head of spine. Physical Review 125 Jan-Feb 1962 (entire volume offered). Ex-library, properly de-accessioned, with minor markings. Cloth. This volume contains the article "Symmetries of Baryons and Mesons" by Murray Gell-Mann, found on pages 1067-1084. Gell-Mann was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1969 "for his contributions and discoveries concerning the classification of elementary particles and their interactions". This paper demonstrates the "introduction of SU(3) single-octet structure of the known mesons and octet-decuplet structure for the baryons. [and] predicts the Omega- Hyperon" There is one earlier introduction of these concepts, in a private institutional paper CTSL-20 which (while quite rare) was printed separately and later reprinted in "The Eightfold Way: A Review" much later (1964). As such, this is the earliest obtainable and best work related to the Gell-Mann's Nobel Prize. See Ezhela, et al, pgs 181 and 186-7. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
