        Symmetries of Baryons and Mesons

      American Inst, Lancaster, PA and New York, NY 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Provenance: Aubrey Forshaw, Managing Director of Pan Books, publisher of the James Bond novels in paperback and Ian Fleming’s expert for technical information concerning James Bond’s cars. It was in this respect that he was asked by Fleming to read the proof of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and correct any errors.

Further corrections, suggestions and typographical errors appear in the margins elsewhere, all of which are adopted to the first edition text.

        The Alexandria Quartet

      Faber & Faber London 1962 - This is the limited, and the world’s first, one volume edition of this signature work of Durrell’s. Only 500 copies were issued in 1962 by Faber, of which this is number 198. It is SIGNED by Lawrence Durrell on a limitation page in vermillion ink. This handsome and sturdy volume is bound in orange buckram with bevelled edges, and on the front cover is an indented area, which displays a handprint motif in black. The title is stamped in gilt on an elegant black panel on the spine, which appears to be leather. The spine is a little sunned but is not seriously affected. The top edge is bright gilt, and the endpapers are yellow. It is still in the soft plastic dustwrapper, which is sometimes absent, and often in a poor state if it is present. This one is fresh looking and perfect. The book is in the special black slipcase, with its black and gold diamond pattern, which betrays only slight usage. In the preface the author declared ''It has been possible, for this edition, to correct a number of small slips pointed out by readers and critics, and also to add some small passages which were cut out of the original volumes in the MS. stage. Balthazar and Mountolive both lose half a dozen lines of text. Clea gains a small section, and a new translation from C.P. Cavafy.'' This is the first one volume edition printing, and despite a slight fading to the spine it surely represents a gorgeous heirloom quality in celebration of a masterwork. 2012 is the author’s centenary. In 1957, Durrell published Justine, the first part of what was to become his most famous work. Balthazar followed by Mountolive came out in 1958, and Clea in 1960. The works deal with events before and during the Second World War in the Alexandria. The first three tell essentially the same story from different perspectives. Clea advances the events in time and reaches a conclusion. The Times Literary Supplement review said,"If ever a work bore an instantly recognizable signature on every sentence, this is it." There was some suggestion that Durrell might be nominated for the Nobel, but this did not materialise. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Kennedy Says the U.S. Must Ògrasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world.Ó

      - Kennedy Says the U.S. Must Ògrasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world.Ó.In 1962, Kennedy's greatest economic worry was the country's balance-of-payments. The United States was buying more than it was selling - and the international trade deficit of $5 billion dollars weaked the value of the currency, risked inflation, and gave foreign nations the power to claim their debts in gold. (Today it is $763.6 billion. What would JFK think of that!). In order to strengthen the currency and ameliorate these problems, Kennedy needed to boost trade. He wanted the authority to negotiate lower tariffs, and he wanted power, too, to compensate American workers whose jobs would be lost to foreign competition. This was the basis of the Trade Expansion Act, introduced in his January State of the Union Message - and which would eventually see passage nine months later. But in May, the issue was far from settled; here the President stumps for the Act, shoring up support as he praises its benefits.Typed Letter Signed as President, on green White House letterhead, Washington, May 24, 1962. ÒThank you for your telegram in support of the trade program which was presented to me at the dinner of the Coordinating Council of Organizations on International Trade Policy last week. I appreciate your interest and that of your State in the enactment of strong new trade legislation which will enable us to grasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world.Ó [Attributes: Signed Copy]
