        HE SAID HE WAS A ROYAL SIAMESE." (caption title) ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR DRAWING, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST

      1972 - Original watercolor, approx. 11 1/2 x 14 in., matted, glazed and framed. The illustration shows four cats, dressed in elegant ball gowns (their tails peaking out just beyond the hems of their dresses) seated around a tea table in a drawing room. The tea table is full of cups and cookies, the cats wear fine jewelry. A chandelier hangs overhead, floor to ceiling windows are covered in fine drapery, pictures of a cat and a bird are mounted on the walls. The drawing is signed and dated by Dionysius, along with the pencil caption title, and a pencil note on the mounting board: "Painted for Marcella Curtin." A humorous, colorfully rendered illustration with much fine detail. Dooley Dionysius was a Saint Louis, Missouri artist who worked for the Walt Disney Studios, and the Public Works of Art Project (part of the Civil Works Administration, a precursor to the WPA) in the 1930's. Born in Kirkwood, Missouri, H.J. "Dooley" Dionysius attended the Washington University School of Fine Arts in the mid-1920's. He spent 10 years in Hollywood working alternately as a jewelry designer, an apprentice to Willy Pogany designing murals for William Randolph Hearst, and in the art department at the Walt Disney studios. In 1932, the Healy Galleries in St. Louis mounted a one-man show of his works. A story by Guy Forshey in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on March 13, 1932 describes Dionysius' work: "His subject matter is of a nature that lends itself admirably to his peculiar style of treatment. He paints pure fancy. His scenes are almost invariably placed on lost continents or in lands which have existed only in the imagination of men. Unlike most water color painters, he does not blend color into color, but builds color on color producing an opaque effect." He often worked in miniature, and critical reviews of his watercolors remark on their exotic nature: "The tiny still life arrangements of flowers remind one of medallions in enamel or semi-precious stones. In all of these the draughtsmanship is meticulous and the compositions are so perfectly in balance that you do not think of such an element as deliberate composition in connection with them. You feel the rhythm of the dancing figures, the swing of the boats and the swell of the waves." He returned to Saint Louis where he continued to pursue his artistic career, exhibiting in local museums and clubs. His work for the PWAP/CWA during the 1930's included creation of a mural of Mother Goose for the Benton School Kindergarten in St. Louis. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Post Captain - INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR

      Collins, London 1972 - HARDBACK - A very good book that has been warmly inscribed by the author to the front endpaper. The light blue boards are clean with a hint of fading to the extremities. Internally, the pages are very clean indeed, with a little offsetting to the endpapers. The dust wrapper is a near fine example. Correctly priced at £1.80nett. There is a miniscule chip to the base of the spine, else a lovely dust wrapper. Patrick O'Brian was a very reclusive person, who seldom signed any books prior to 1994. This book comes with impeccable provenance as to when the book was signed by the author. Very rare thus. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Problems of statistical physics. Autograph manuscript signed

      1972 - Uhlenbeck, George Eugene (1900-1988). Problems of statistical physics. Autograph manuscript signed, on yellow lined paper. 30 sheets numbered 1, 1a, 2-21, 23-27, a-c; manuscript is complete despite break in numbering. [1972.] 280 x 215 mm. First sheet a little discolored, small rust stains from paper clip on first and last leaves. Very good. The Dutch-American physicist G. E. Uhlenbeck is best known for his discovery, with Samuel Goudsmit, of electron spin, one of the cornerstones of quantum mechanics. Uhlenbeck and Goudsmit’s paper on electron spin was published in October 1925, when Uhlenbeck was just 24; afterwards, he taught physics at the University of Michigan and several other universities before joining the Rockefeller Institute in 1960. The present paper, describing some of the fundamental problems in statistical physics, was presented at the 1972 symposium on "The Development of the Physicist’s Conception of Nature in the Twentieth Century," held in honor of Paul Dirac’s 70th birthday. The paper was published the following year in The Physicist’s Conception of Nature (1973), edited by Jagdish Mehra. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        From matrix mechanics and wave mechanics to unified quantum mechanics. Autograph manuscript and typescript signed.

      1972 - Van der Waerden, Bartel Leendert (1903-96). From matrix mechanics and wave mechanics to unified quantum mechanics. Autograph manuscript and typescript signed. 26, 10pp. 1972. Approx. 298 x 218 mm. Minor rust stains from paper clips, but very good. The Dutch mathematician B. L. van der Waerden, a colleague of Werner Heisenberg at the University of Leipzig, made important contributions to quantum mechanics, the most significant being his invention in 1929 of spinor calculus "to prove the relativistic invariance of the Dirac equation in the spirit of classic tensor analysis" (Zeidler, Quantum Field Theory III: A Bridge between Mathematicians and Physicists, p. 285). He was also the author of Moderne Algebra (1930), considered to be the most influential textbook on abstract algebra published in the twentieth century. In the above paper van der Waerden described the events in March and April 1926 that led to the merging of matrix mechanics and wave mechanics into a new unified quantum mechanics. Van der Waerden presented the above paper at the symposium on "The Development of the Physicist’s Conception of Nature in the Twentieth Century," held in 1972 in honor of Paul Dirac’s 70th birthday; the paper, along with the discussion that followed, was published the following year on pp. 278-289 of The Physicist’s Conception of Nature (1973), edited by Jagdish Mehra. The manuscript consists of 18 sheets in van der Waerden’s hand augmented with a reproduced typescript transcription of a letter from Wolfgang Pauli to Pascual Jordan written on April 12, 1926; at the end is a typed transcript of the discussion held at the end of van der Waerden’s presentation, heavily edited in Mehra’s hand.
