        On the Coordination of the Riemannian and Kinematic Techniques in Theoretical Cosmology. With Particular Reference to the Shift-Distance Law" in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, Volume 116, 1957, pp. 335-350

      - FIRST EDITION OF WOLFGANG RINDLER'S 'EVENT HORIZON' PAPER, a concept Alan Guth cites and employs as an important part of his 'Inflationary Universe' theory. Guth needed to solve what was known as 'the horizon problem' in order to further his theory. Guth explained the problem in his seminal 1981 paper: "The standard model of hot big-bang cosmology requires initial conditions which are problematic in two ways: (1) The early universe is assumed to be highly homogeneous, in spite of the fact that separated regions were causally disconnected (horizon problem) and (2) the initial value of the Hubble constant must be fine tuned to extraordinary accuracy (flatness problem)" (Guth 1981, 347). "By simply examining the horizon as a function of epoch, Rindler showed that as we go back in time, a smaller and smaller fraction of all of the photons in the universe could be observed. none was within the horizon. Thus as we go back in time a larger and larger fraction of the universe was unobservable, and since the particles could not communicate, there was no way to smooth out any irregularities. Thus we are forced to the conclusion that if the universe is homogeneous and isotropic now as we believe it is, this is because it was created this way. This. means that we must believe that this initial condition is a metaphysical construct. Many physicists reject metaphysical arguments, and this is where Guth's inflation comes in" (Iyer, Highlights in Gravitation and Cosmology, 230). By supposing the inflationary event lasted from 10 36 seconds after the Big Bang to sometime between 10 33 and 10 32 seconds, Guth was able to explain both flatness and isotropy (the flatness problem and the horizon problem). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Royal Astronomical Society. "On the Coordination of the Riemannian and Kinematic Techniques in Theoretical Cosmology. With Particular Reference to the Shift-Distance Law" in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, Volume 116, 1957, pp. 335-350. Octavo (10.75 x 6.75 inches; 269 x 169mm). Full volume.

        CISTERN WORKERS".

      circa 1981-83., Lafayette: - Gouache on paper, measuring 40 x 48 inches. Double-framed in cream cloth under glass and blonde wood. Colorful image with a free-flowing geometricity evoking cubism of two men hoisting water from a brick-lined cistern . William Tolliver (1951-2000) was a brilliant self-taught, Mississippi-born artist. He arose during the mid-1980's as a brilliant regional talent, an individual impelled by a desire to capture the landscapes and peoples of his native deep South. Whether dealing with everyday workers or back-alley jazzmen, he conveys a universal message through the common human experience. He was born in Vicksburg. His mother worked in the cotton fields by day, but also raised 14 children. To stimulate their interest in learning, she often challenged William and his older brother to drawing contests. Discovering William’s talent, she borrowed art books from the library that exposed her son to the works of the European masters. At age 14, Tolliver dropped out of school and left Mississippi to join the Job Corps program in Los Angeles. During his year-and-a-half stint with Job Corps, he studied carpentry at a government-sponsored trade school. Assisted by an instructor at the trade school who was also a visual artist, Tolliver received additional instruction and information about the techniques of painting. He married in 1977 and, in 1981, he moved his family to Lafayette, Louisiana, where an oil boom had created employment opportunities in the construction trades. In Lafayette, he worked as a wallpaper hanger and a house painter. Two years later, however, the city’s building industry fell into decline, leaving Tolliver unemployed. Laid off from his job and without income, he set out to relax in his free hours by painting with his daughters paint kit. Tolliver soon began to paint in a new and unique style that has been termed "representational abstract expressionism." Able to work in numerous mediums- oil, acrylic, watercolor, oil pastel, and dimensional reliefs- Tolliver was forever exploring new techniques.Critically ranked with such famous African American artists as Romare Bearden and Jacob Lawrence, Tolliver soon gained the reputation as one of America’s most renowned contemporary artists. He has received numerous awards and recognitions for his contributions in the field of art. He also produced the poster for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, the city where he finally settled.

      Asahi Sonorama 1981 - 4to.; illustrated in black-and-white throughout, interior pages are clean, pictorial wrapper, without slipcase else fine. As one of Miyako Ishiuchi's most important early books, Endless Night presents deceptively quiet images of an abandoned building near the American military base Yokosuka in Japan. The decrepit hallways and uninhabited interiors hint at the space's former use as a brothel. Ishiuchi's strength as a photographer is her ability to convey meaning through suggestion and Endless Night does this masterfully. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
