        High-Energy Inelastic e-p Scattering at 6(deg) and 10(deg)" WITH: "Observed Behavior of Highly Inelastic Electron-Proton Scattering" in Physical Review Letters 23 Issue 16 pp. 930-939, October 20, 1969

      1969 FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS of an enormously influential paper that provided the first empirical evidence of the existence of quarks within the atomic nucleus. In demonstrating that quarks are real particles, Friedman, Kendall, and Taylor confirmed Murray Gell-Mann's hypothesis on their existence; for their discovery, the trio were awarded the 1990 Nobel Prize in Physics. Gell-Mann's landmark work positing the 'idea' of quarks was based on the assumption that strongly interacting particles he classified (called hadrons) were all "built up from more elementary constituents" - that he famously called 'quarks' (Levinovitz, The Nobel Prize, 44). Few people, however, "believed that quarks were real particles. Despite many searches in accelerators and in cosmic rays, no one had found an isolated quark… As Gell-Mann himself said: 'Such particles [quarks] presumably are not real but we may use them in our field theory anyway'" (Alan Lightman, The Discoveries, pp. 457-). Friedman, Kendall, and Taylor proved the existence of quarts by using "high-energy electrons from the then new accelerator, and [showing] that they bounced back in an unexpected way from the protons and neutrons in a gas target" (Quinn, The Mystery of the Missing Antimatter, 97). "Friedman's group was startled… to observe that the scattering pattern suggested not that the positive charge of the proton was uniformly spread out, but rather that charges were confined to point-like centers within the protons. Further experiments determined that the source of these point charges existing within the protons (and neutrons) were indeed evidence of the recently proposed elementary particle, the quark" (Manhattan Rare Books). "The electrons ricocheted off hard point-like objects inside the proton. These were soon shown to be identical with the quarks, thus simplifying the physicist's picture of the world; but the results could not be entirely explained by quarks alone. The Nobel Prize-winning experiment indicated that the proton also contained electrically neutral constituents. These were soon found to be "gluons," particles glueing the quarks together in protons and other particles. A new rung on the ladder of creation had revealed itself and a new epoch in the history of physics had begun" (Nobel Prize Award Ceremony, 1990). CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: The American Physical Society. (10.5 x 9 inches; 263 x 225mm). Physical Review Letters, 23, 16, October 20, 1969. Fine condition inside and out.

        Andy Warhol (Stockholm Catalogue)

      Stockholm: Moderna Museet (1969) - Second Edition. Quarto. The deluxe edition, gilt-edged, housed in a black plexiglass slipcase with clear sides to highlight the gilt edges. SIGNED by Andy Warhol. Limited to approximately 50-100 copies, but exact bibliographic details are unknown. Warhol's famous 'Stockholm Catalogue', published on the occasion of his first European museum show at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, February - March, 1968. The concept for the catalogue was developed by Kasper König, who commissioned Factory stalwart Billy Name, and a teenage Stephen Store, to photograph how Warhol and his coconspirators lived and worked. But it was König's use of the xerox machine to reproduce Warhol's own work that gives this catalogue its signature feel. By some estimates over 200,000 copies were printed in three editions. (Parr / Badger, v2, 144-145; Open Book 238-239). Tiny production crease to the top of the spine, else fine in gilt-edged wrappers; plexiglass slipcase is split at the top of the spine, a few light scratches, otherwise near fine.

Fine, clean, straight book that is very tight and apparently unread, bound in ivory colored rough weave cloth with gold gilt printing on the front and spine and publisher's red upper page edges, in a Fine, clean and undamaged dustjacket (no flap data and unpriced at publisher's wish) of a yellowish-tan color with small decorative threads woven throughout the paper. The book is housed in publisher's light red paper-covered boards slipcase that is in Very Good+ condition with the limitation number written small in ink at the lower spine end, a shadow from a (probably) very small price sticker at the upper right corner, and some small nicks in the paper at the opening of the slipcase. It is structurally very sound; just has a few small cosmetic problems. The classic tale of a repressed and imaginative young man who has vivid sexual fantasies and adventures, all ruined by feelings of shame and fear of retribution instilled in him by his parents. Made into a memorable movie in 1972, with Richard Benjamin playing the part of Alexander Portnoy. Similar themes to Roth's 'Goodbye, Columbus' - but perhaps that's partially because Richard Benjamin also starred in that movie and left an indelible impression of an angst-ridden young man. .

        Portnoy's Complaint

      New York: Random House 1969 - . Limited numbered edition. Signed by Roth on the limitation page. One of 6000 copies, this copy #319. Publisher's coarse light beige cloth, lettered in gilt, red topstain; in the original light beige dust jacket, lettered in gray, housed in the publisher's red slipcase, with the limitation number handwritten to the spine in black. An excellent copy, with a hint of light wear to the extremities, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with just a touch of toning to the spine, bright and fresh panels, slipcase with some light wear to extremities and a few spots of light soiling, else fine. Overall, a fine copy in a fine dust jacket and excellent slipcase. Portnoy's Complaint is the novel that is credited with transforming Roth from a promising young author into a major literary celebrity. The novel features the protagonist Alexander Portnoy, a young bachelor whose strong sexual desires and inability to achieve satisfaction results in his simultaneous self-loving and self-loathing. The text is structured as Portnoy's extended, continuous monologue in a singular therapy session with his psychoanalyst Dr. Spielvogel, to whom Portnoy divulges confessions of libido in scathing detail. A semi-autobiographical text, Portnoy's Complaint is infused with aspects of Roth's own life, including the protagonist's Jewish heritage and many of the New Jersey locations, such as Roth's alma mater Weequahic High School in Newark. Despite its controversial reception for its explicit descriptions of the protagonist's sexuality, Portnoy's Complaint is a widely acclaimed novel that served as the basis for the 1972 film of the same name written and directed by Ernest Lehman. Indeed, in his 1969 review for The New York Times, Josh Greenfeld proclaimed, "Don't feel the least bit guilty about enjoying it thoroughly: I know not since Catcher in the Rye have I read an American novel with such pleasure."

From the 9th to 13th centuries, the city was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, the first kingdom to unify the regions that would later constitute modern Burma (now Myanmar). During the kingdom's height between the 11th and 13th centuries, over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed in the Pagan plains alone, of which the remains of over 2200 temples and pagodas still survive to the present day (modified after Wiki). This work documents these remaining temples and pagodas and the Buddhist and other iconography housed within. No ownership marks and no signs of use.

        I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS (signed)

      Random House, New York 1969 - Random House 1969. New York 8vo 281 pages. SIGNED / INSCRIBED by Maya Angelou directly to the second half-title page. Gift inscription by Angelou: ___ __'s Beloved Joy! Maya Angelou. First edition, first printing as copyright page states first edition and also has a full numberline beginning with 2. However, there is no red/magenta top-stain which is required for the true preferred 1st printing. Additionally, this copy has a blind impression on the lower corner on rear panel thus regarded as either a bookclub edition or a leftover/remainder copy. There is no remainder marker or spray on bottom page edges. DJ price has mostly been clipped as only the $ symbol is left on the flap. This book would grade fine if not for some textural scuffing to the FFEP. While there is no staining to the FFEP, from experience it appears that a bookplate was likely removed as the paper is rough in a few spots. The book would grade Near Fine should you choose to add your own bookplate or gift bookplate on this spot. Minor wear at corner tips. Black cloth is bright and clean. Pages are tight and bright. DJ is bright and attractive with only minor rubs/soiling. Book appears unread. This is a very nice, tight and clean copy, signed and inscribed by Maya Angelou. Better than VG++.

M. G. LE CLÉZIO on the half-title and there fittingly inscribed by him as follows: "a voyage imaginaire / avec le merci / de JMG le Clezio"; le Clézio's third novel, a tale centered on Chancelade, a man who, from childhood to death, sees his life in minute detail. J. M. G. le Clézio' won the 1963 Prix Renaudot for his novel debut novel "Le Procès-Verbal" (published in English as "The Interrogation"), and the 2008 Nobel Prize in Literature as an "author of new departures, poetic adventure and sensual ecstasy, explorer of a humanity beyond and below the reigning civilization". Of "terra amata, the Wall Street Journal stated (in 2008, after le Clézio had published over 36 books ) "...Mr. Le Clézio's most impressive book may be a brief one he published at age 27, when he was still a combative modernist. "Terra Amata," translated into English in 1967, combines his game-playing as the author with a savage lyricism reminiscent of Thomas Hardy." We have not seen any other signed copies of the book in any language. A Very Near Fine copy, SIGNED BY J. M. G. LE CLEZIO. QUITE SCARCE.
