Il ns., 31, fa parte dei 250, su carta a mano Magnani. Molto ben conservato. Cfr. Cat. Mardersteig,130: ?"L?'edizione delle "Epistole et Evangelii", stampata a Firenze nel 1495 per Piero Pacini da Pescia da parte di Lorenzo de?' Morgiani e Giovanni di Magonza, è uno dei più rari e più belli incunaboli illustrati con xilografie.. Il testo italiano dell?'originale comprende tutti i brani della Bibbia che si trovano nel "Missale Romanum"; questi sono illustrati con 164 xilografie, delle quali 22 rappresentano gli evangelisti e i profeti, mentre le restanti 142 xilografie sono illustrazioni per i testi del Vecchio e del Nuovo Testamento. Di queste, 110 fanno parte dei quattro Vangeli.. Tutte le xilografie però erano state incise su disegno dello stesso artista. Non c?'è nessun documento che ci riveli il suo nome, tuttavia l?'identità stilistica di queste illustrazioni con l?'opera di Bartolomeo di Giovanni - alunno e collaboratore di Domenico Ghirlandajo - è talmente evidente che può essergli attribuita anche quest?'importante opera illustrata?".

        Nuclear Configurations in the Spin-Orbit Coupling Model I. Empirical Evidence" WITH "Nuclear Configurations in the Spin Orbit Coupling Model II. Theoretical Considerations" in Physical Review 78 No. 1, April 1, 1950, p. 16-21 and pp. 22-23

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THE TWO PAPERS IN WHICH MARCIA MAYER DEVELOPS A MATHEMATICAL MODEL FOR THE STRUCTURE OF NUCLEAR SHELLS. Mayer "was the first person to investigate the theoretical basis of nuclear pairing," something which plays a critical role in the shell model of the atomic nucleus. Along with J.H.D. Jenson and Eugene Wigner (for their contributions to the theory of the atomic nucleus and nuclear shell structure), Mayer won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Physics for this work. "Mayer was a mathematical physicist with a facility for the matrix manipulations of group theory and quantum mechanics and a chemist's appreciation for the accumulation and analysis of large quantities of physical data" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). In 1950, there were two major theories of the nucleus: the liquid drop model and the shell model. "The reality of some kind of shell arrangement became clear only in 1948, when Mayer [in this paper] brought together evidence from diverse fields that showed the reality of what soon became known as 'magical numbers.' The name seems to have been coined by Wigner. Mayer argues persuasively that nuclei with 2, 8, 20, 50, 82, and 126 protons or neutrons were particularly stable and hence that these magical numbers represented closed shells in the nucleus. Not only did these nuclei have large binding energies and the largest number of isotopes, but they were also markedly more abundant than nuclei in their neighborhood" (Kragh, Quantum Generations, p. 280). Interestingly it was "Enrico Fermi who provided Mayer with a critical insight by asking her: 'Is there any indication of spin orbit coupling?' She realized that this was indeed the case, and postulated that the nucleus is a series of closed shells and pairs of neutrons and protons tend to couple together" (Wikipedia). CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Institute of Physics. 4to. 10.5 x 7.75 inches (262 x 194mm). Bound in original wraps; meticulously rebacked. Very faint library stamp on the front and rear wrap as well as the first page; literally the stamps are very difficult to even see (see scan). Otherwise fine condition in every way.

The map of The Fellowship was loose, and has now been retipped into its original position to the last free endpaper. The previous owner had taped it in at one time, then made a pocket to hold the map, tape remains and the pocket are shown in the photos. The same previous owners name neatly to The Fellowship and The Return books. The gilt to the spines are all clean and bright. Each book has it's own original foldout map tipped in at the rear, and all are in excellent condition with no tears or extra folds noted.
