        Symmetries of Baryons and Mesons

      Lancaster, PA: American Institute of Physics 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. Very Good.

        The Ticket That Exploded

      Paris: Olympia Press, 1962. 1st edition (in English). Fine in printed wraps and fine dustjacket (impeccable). An unequivocally counter culture, and desensitizingly pushy novel, fixated on the American spiritual void, in a world without belief, where religion has been reinvented as the worship of chemicals. It's also a novel about mind control, saying that language is a virus, and if you think you are free, you're probably infected, anticipating our time of feckless media journalism, only sometimes biased against a particular policy, position, party, persuasion, or point of view, but always biased against understanding. And since this is a book about the effects of drugs on the mind, here's what I've learned: Avoid all drugs that make me more boring than I already am, or nervous enough to thread a sewing machine while it's running, or lead me to suppose I should give myself a haircut. Fine / fine.
