        I VANGELI SECONDO MATTEO, MARCO, LUCA, GIOVANNI

      Verona, Officina Bodoni, 1963. In-4 p., leg. edit. in p. marocch. verde, astuccio, custodia in legno, pp. 350, frontespizio inciso da Reynolds Stone, ornato da 114 xilografie - tratte da "Epistole et Evangelii" del 1495 e create da Bartolomeo di Giovanni - nuovamente incise da Bruno Bramanti. I quattro Vangeli sono stati tradotti dal greco dal Pontificio Istituto Biblico. Edizione stampata nel torchio a mano, in tiratura di 275 esempl. numer. 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?".

        Signed less than 48 hours before leaving for Texas, President and Mrs. Kennedy's 1963 Christmas card - of the utmost rarity!

      [Washington DC], [November 19-20, 1963]. 4.5" x 6.5". "Exceedingly Rare 1963 Kennedy Christmas Card boldly signed ?John Kennedy? as President and ?Jacqueline Kennedy? as First Lady. Hallmark card, 4.5? x 6.5? closed. Color photograph on front captioned ?Créche in East Room, The White House.? Engraved message beneath gilt-embossed presidential seal: ?With our wishes / for a / Blessed Christmas / and a / Happy New Year.? Barely visible mounting remnants at upper edges on verso. Fine condition.According to Mary Evans Seeley in her book, ?Season's Greetings from the White House,? 1,500 cards reading ?With our wishes for a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year? were printed by Hallmark with facsimile signatures of President and Mrs. Kennedy, and an additional 700 were ordered without signatures. Maj. Gen. C.V. Clifton, Jr., Kennedy?s military aide, was informed by a letter dated Nov. 14, 1963, from Jeannette Lee, a Hallmark V.P., that 500 of the unsigned cards would be shipped directly to him. Pres. Kennedy was at Cape Canaveral, Florida, on Nov. 16th to watch a test launch of a Polaris missile, then flew to Palm Beach. After speeches in Tampa and Miami on Nov. 18th, he returned to Washington close to midnight that evening. The 500 blank cards had arrived while the President was in Florida. He must have signed this card on Nov. 19th or Nov. 20th. On the morning of Nov. 21st, President and Mrs. Kennedy left for Texas. Seeley writes that the President and First Lady had signed 30 cards, 15 of them with just the New Years greetings and 15 with the Christmas and New Years greeting."

        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.

        On Her Majesty's Secret Service (a James Bond novel)

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1963. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION, only 250 copies. IAN FLEMING'S OWN COPY. Colour frontispiece of the author by Charles Amherst Villiers. Publisher's quarter vellum over black cloth. Gilt titles to spine. In original clear plastic wrapper. A fine copy, with one chip to the crown of the jacket. The only Signed Limited Edition of an Ian Fleming book. A FINE ASSOCIATION COPY, being one of the author's personal copies (he received the first ten), and then presented to his close friend Amherst Villiers, the illustrator of this volume. Villiers ended up with three copies of this edition- this copy, and an out of series copy both given to him by Fleming, plus a later numbered copy which he personally ordered from the publisher. We have purchased all three copies from the family over the years. This particular example was then givel by Amherst to his son Charles Churchill Villiers (and as such does not have the Villiers bookplate the other two possess). It does however benefit from a loose autograph note from Amherst 'I gave this book to Charlie... I have another copy. Pa' Sold with a copy of the original sales invoice, signed by Villiers. Amherst Villiers had two children, the late Janie Villiers and Charles Churchill Villiers, godson of Sir Winston Churchill. Both made the acquaintance of Fleming bibliographer Jon Gilbert of Adrian Harrington Ltd., who interviewed them whilst researching the book. The Villiers family home was just a short walk from Harrington's bookshop in Kensington. Published in 1963, this is the second part of a collection of James Bond books that has become known as the 'Blofeld' trilogy, sitting between Thunderball (1961) and You Only Live Twice (1964). The title was filmed by Eon Productions in 1969, starring George Lazenby as 007, Diana Rigg as Tracy and Telly Savalas as Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Directed by Peter Hunt, with a terrific storyline and slick script from the ever-reliable screenwriter Richard Maibaum, O.H.M.S.S. features superb action, spectacular locations, a marvelous John Barry score, and, in Contessa Teresa de Vicenzo (aka Tracy, aka Mrs James Bond), probably the greatest Bond Girl of all time. The movie, unlike most in the series, was faithful to the original Ian Fleming novel and is a fine thriller; one of the grittiest movies of the series. Gilbert A11a.

        A Collection of Original Press Releases for the March On Washington for Jobs and Freedom, 1963

      Various 1963 - A collection of 20 original press releases issued for the landmark August 28, 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, all gathered by a journalist who attended the event. The advanced text of the remarks of all of the important speakers are represented here, and according to one informed source, this represents all press releases that were issued at the March. It should be noted that the advance text of the speech of Dr. King does not include the "I Have a Dream" segment, which was delivered extemporaneously. According to most accounts, singer Mahalia Jackson was sitting behind King during his speech, and in a low voice encouraged King to "tell them about your dream." All but one of the releases were printed by mimeographed or ditto processes and would have been issued in relatively few numbers. While it is unknown how many were produced, several people involved with the March have suggested that no more than 200 copies of each release was prepared, and almost certainly most of these were discarded. All of the press releases are in fine condition (the two very minor exceptions noted in the itemized list below). Presumably, at this late date, it would be nearly impossible to accumulate a complete set of these press releases from perhaps the most important day in Civil Rights History. 1. *[Map]: Aug. 28 March Area Details*. 8.5" x 11".
