Folded from mailing with light wear at a few corners and one with an address stamp and blue smudge, overall near fine or better. After the publication of Cain's Book, Trocchi moved to London with his family and for the next two years focused much of his time on the Sigma Project, consisting of a series of mimeographed portfolio mailings as a way of directly connecting with readers. The intent behind the project was to further his Situationist-influenced theory for cultural revolution based on a focus on one's "inner space" of self-consciousness as a way of influencing society. The Sigma Project included both political works and letters authored by Trocchi, as well as by William Burroughs, Stan Brakage, Michael McClure, and Robert Kelly.All the issues are difficult to obtain and to identify properly, which makes assembling a complete set particularly difficult. This partial set includes:• Sigma Portfolio 2 - Invisible Insurrection of a Million Minds. Written by Trocchi. [1964]. 8pp. Originally published in the Scottish literary journal Saltire Review in 1962. Trocchi lays out his idea behind the Sigma Project.

        Nuclei and Particles. An Introduction to Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics.W. A. Benjamin: New York & Amsterdam, 1965.

      First edition, second printing, of Segrè's major textbook on nuclear physics, <b>the author's own copy heavily annotated by him throughout</b>, with numerous manuscript additions/revisions in pencil and red and blue crayon. Some 145 pages carry annotations ranging from minor typographical corrections to major textual changes. Inserted in a 16-page printed pamphlet listing the corrections made to the first printing (1964), itself heavily annotated by the author. Segrè shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Owen Chamberlain in 1959 for the discovery of the antiproton.<br/><br/> "Emilio Segrè was born in Tivoli, Rome, on February 1st, 1905, as the son of Giuseppe Segrè, industrialist, and Amelia Treves. He went to school in Tivoli and Rome, and entered the University of Rome as a student of engineering in 1922. In 1927 he changed over to physics and took his doctor's degree in 1928 under Professor Enrico Fermi, the first one under the latter's sponsorship. <br/><br/> "He served in the Italian Army in 1928 and 1929, and entered the University of Rome as assistant to Professor Corbino in 1929. In 1930 he had a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship and worked with Professor Otto Stern at Hamburg, Germany, and Professor Pieter Zeeman at Amsterdam, Holland. In 1932 he returned to Italy and was appointed Assistant Professor at the University of Rome, working continuously with Professor Fermi and others. In 1936 he was appointed Director of the Physics Laboratory at the University of Palermo, where he remained until 1938. <br/><br/> "In 1938 Professor Segrè came to Berkeley, California, first as a research associate in the Radiation Laboratory and later as a lecturer in the Physics Department. From 1943 to 1946 he was a group leader in the Los Alamos Laboratory of the Manhattan Project. In 1946 he returned to the University of California at Berkeley as a Professor of Physics. <br/><br/> "The work of Professor Segrè has been mainly in atomic and nuclear physics. In the first field he worked in atomic spectroscopy, making contributions to the spectroscopy of forbidden lines and the study of the Zeeman effect. Except for a short interlude on molecular beams, all his work until 1934 was in atomic spectroscopy. In 1934 he started the work in nuclear physics by collaborating with Professor Fermi on neutron research. He participated in the discovery of slow neutrons and in the pioneer neutron work carried on in Rome 1934-1935. Later he was interested in radiochemistry and discovered together with Professor Perrier the element technetium, together with Corson and Mackenzie the element astatine, and together with Kennedy, Seaborg, and Wahl, plutonium-239 and its fission properties. <br/><br/> "His other investigations in nuclear physics cover many subjects, e.g., isomerism, spontaneous fission, and lately high-energy physics. Here he, his associates and students have made contributions to the study of the interaction between nucleons and on the related polarization phenomena. In 1955 together with Chamberlain, Wiegand, and Ypsilantis he discovered the antiproton" ( <br/><br/> "In his later years Segrè turned himself into a first-class historian of physics; his historical surveys, <i>From X-Rays to Quarks: Modern Physicists and Their Discoveries and From Falling Bodies to Radio Waves: Classical Physicists and Their Discoveries</i> and his biography <i>Enrico Fermi: Physicist</i> are widely used" ( Segrè remained at Berkeley until his death in 1989. <br/><br/> <i>Nuclei and Particles</i> was highly successful: OCLC records 47 separate editions/printings.

        The State Funeral of The Right Honourable Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill K.G., O.M., C.H

      London: Headquarters, London District, Horse Guards, Whitehall, S.W.1, , 1964. Special District Order by Major-General E.J.B. Nelson... General Officer Commanding London District and Major-General Commanding The Household Brigade. Folio (330 × 202 mm). Tan rough cloth-backed, cord-tied binder, purple printed title sheet mounted on the upper board. 152 pages of reproduced typescript with thumb-indexed dividers. 5 additional groups of amendments loosely inserted at the rear. 15 folding maps and plans at the rear. A little rubbed, slightly shaken, a number of pages pulling loose from the cords, as often, but complete and overall very good. Inevitably the first and only edition. The distribution list shows it to be one of 302 copies, this numbered 81, one of two copies for British Railways (Western Region). Churchill's state funeral was the first held for a commoner for over 100 years, the last being for the Duke of Wellington, and was attended, against precedent, by Elizabeth II as reigning monarch. Having confronted the inevitability of his death during his last illness, the British people accepted his death with respectful restraint, over 320,000 filed past the catafalque in Westminster, one million lined the route, and 125,000 paid their respects at the grave in the tiny country churchyard at Bladon on the day following his interment. The folder contains the detailed instructions for the supervision of each stage of the immensely complicated progress of Churchill's body from the lying-in-state at Westminster Hall, to the funeral service at St. Paul's, the embarkation at Tower Hill onto a Port of London launch, and the transfer to the train for the final journey to the family plot at Bladon. The meticulousness of the arrangements - careful estimates of ground space covered on the march for each detachment of the procession, and its total length expressed in terms of its time to pass any given point of 25.7 mins. - is reflected in the minute precision that can be seen in the filmed record of the obsequies. Plans for the event had been put in train - under the code-name "Operation Hope Not" - as long ago as 1959, and had been brought to completion during Churchill's illness in the winter of 1964, which is confirmed by the dating on the index leaf mounted on the front pastedown to November 1964. A fascinating record of the most famous state funeral of modern times, an event described by a contemporary correspondent as "a spectacle of heart-gripping homage."

      Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, (1964)., 1964 "I learn nothing because my mind is stuffed with bodies. . . " Cohen, Leonard. FLOWERS FOR HITLER. Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1964. Octavo. Gilt-lettered black cloth. First Edition of the very elusive hardcover edition of Cohen&#39;s third collection of poetry & his most difficult book to acquire. This is a fine example with clean endpapers & tight unblemished text block, [multiple paper stocks used by McClelland] in a very good or better dustwrapper showing modest wear at the head & heel of the slightly darkened spine panel which is lightly rubbed affecting a few letters. A particularly good copy rarely seen as such these days. In fact over the last 10 years fewer than a handful of FFH have surfaced. $2550 "The first of Cohen&#39;s self-consciously "anti-art" gestures: an attempt, in his own words, to move "from the world of the golden-boy poet into the dung pile of the front-line writer." - Prof. Stephen Scobie. "It&#39;s useful to think of Flowers for Hitler as the author auditioning himself for all the parts in an unwritten play. Useful because it underlines the process of self-recovery and self-discovery that is at the center of these poems. In a jacket-note Cohen says that these poems won&#39;t appeal to the reviewers who praised his previous (second) collection, The Spice Box of Earth (1961). But I suspect that anyone who really liked the latter in all its range of style and substance (that is, not just its lusher surfaces and sounds) will like Flowers for Hitler even better. From the new perspective what looks wrong with the earlier work is a kind of premature coming to terms with himself. In Flowers for Hitler Cohen isn&#39;t so much shifting his ground; he&#39;s trying to unjell himself before it&#39;s too late. He&#39;s taking a more searching and uncompromising look at the poetic substance that he exists on, at all the things that he can remember, imagine, absorb, separate, excrete, transmute, forget." - Milton Wilson, Letters in Canada: 1964 POETRY. First Edition Rarity.
