        Eternal Chaotic Inflation" in Modern Physics Letters A, Volume 1, Number 2, May 1986, pp. 81-85

      - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THE FIRST INCLUSION OF ETERNAL INFLATION IN THE CHAOTIC INFLATION THEORY. In this paper, the Russian-American theoretical physicist, Andrei Linde shows that his 'Chaotic Inflation' theory models quantum fluctuations in the rate of inflation, thus demonstrating "that any inflationary theory with an unbounded potential is eternal" (Anderson, Cosmic Compendium, 35). Eternal chaotic inflation "remains the "standard model" of inflation more than 20 years after its conception" (Wenner Collection). Evidence for this model continues and is persuasive. Linde shows "that the evolution of the universe in the chaotic inflation scenario has no end and may have no beginning. According to this scenario, the universe consists of an exponentially large number of different mini-universes inside which all possible metastable vacuum states and all possible types of compactifications are realized" (Linde, "Eternal Chaotic Inflation", 81). "Those regions with a higher rate of inflation expand faster and dominate the universe, despite the natural tendency of inflation to end in other regions. This allows inflation to continue forever, to produce future-eternal inflation" (Anderson). "In 1983, Andrei Linde demonstrated that quantum fluctuations could begin inflation without the highly unlikely condition of a high plateau in the energy potential hill, and he named the result "chaotic inflation." In 1986 [and in this paper], Linde extended his theory to include the notion of eternal inflation. When begun, "eternal chaotic inflation" would continue to grow in random (chaotic) ways through other quantum fluctuations, and thus be eternal-hence the term "eternal chaotic inflation." An outgrowth of the Big Bang theory, 'eternal inflation' is a model of the universe in which "the inflationary phase of the Universe's expansion lasts forever in at least some regions of the Universe. Because these regions expand exponentially rapidly, most of the volume of the Universe at any given time is inflating. All models of eternal inflation produce an infinite multiverse" (Anderson, Cosmic Compendium, 35). CONDITION & DETAILS: Original wraps, complete issue. [9.75 x 6.5 inches]. Ex-libris bearing a stamp, etc. on the front wrap, otherwise clean, bright, and tight. No other library marks within whatsoever. Pristine within. Very good ++. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Small archive including HIPPOCRENE, MATOAKA, THE KINGFISHER, WHAT THE LIGHT WAS LIKE, ARCHAIC FIGURE, and THE SILENCE OPENS, some signed, others with notes laid in, typed poem DUNDEE.

      New York: Knopf and others, 1983 : , 1983. SIGNED hardcover first edition - FOR SALE, AS A LOT ONLY: a unique group of items with a significant association to Clampitt's life. Included are four of her hardcover books published by Knopf - The Kingfisher, What the Light Was Like, Archaic Figure and The Silence Opens. Kingfisher is a 2nd printing (before publication), the rest are first printings; none have dust jackets (possibly as sent by the publisher or possibly removed by the recipient.) Tipped onto the front endpaper of 'The Kingfisher' is a small handwritten note "For Harold Guthrie - who opened the excitements of English poetry for me so many years ago, and whose friendship I treasure - with thanks and best wishes always." SIGNED by Clampitt in full and dated in December 1982. 'Archaic Figure' and 'What the Light Was Like' have tipped-in printed cards from the publisher stating "with the compliments of the author" (one of those cards has "Harold Guthrie "handwritten on it); 'The Silence Opens' has a similar card, loosely laid in. Also included is a brief typed signed note dated in December 1983, referring both to seeing Guthrie recently and to the limited edition broadside of "Hippocrene" which she was sending as a Christmas greeting. The note also states that she is enclosing a poem "that comes out of my brief visit to Scotland." The photocopied typed poem "Dundee: A Homage" fills one side of an 8 1/2 by 11 inch sheet (folded in four for mailing). Hippocrene is on a single sheet 17" by 11" folded to make 4 page broadside, printed in an edition of 220 copies on the occasion of the poet reading at Bennington College in November 17, 1983. It has an additional fold line across the middle (probably to fit in a smaller envelope for mailing) - As far as we have been able to determine, "Dundee" has not been published in book form, at least - The final item is a copy of "Matoaka: A Poem in Celebration of the Tercentary of the College of William and Mary College in Virginia" in 1993. This is INSCRIBED by Clampitt to Guthrie 'with longtime and continuing esteem' and dated in February, 1993. While Clampitt started writing poetry seriously in the 1970's, and had been published in magazines, including the New Yorker, as well as publishing the chapbook 'Multitudes, Multitudes,' it was the appearance of her first collection with Knopf - The Kingfisher - in 1983, when she was already in her 60's, that brought her acclaim. This lot covers the entire span of Clampitt's most productive last years before her death - and they are evidence on an on-going and warm relationship with the teacher from her hometown of New Providence, Iowa, the teacher whom she honored publicly in 1984 when she wrote (at the end of 'A Homage to John Keats'): "I wish to . . . pay tribute to Harold Guthrie, in whose class at New Providence, Iowa, I had my introduction to the poetry of Keats." The two very uncommon published items, as well as the short notes and the poem "Dundee", make this lot interesting in itself, but the real value lies in the spirit behind these gifts and notes to Guthrie - her teacher more than 40 years before. Most fine or near fine condition, some with folds from mailing. .

        Green Lantern Vol. 2 167, page 7 "Ring Against Ring!"

      DC Comics Inc, 1983. 16 x 10 inches. Fine. 16 x 10 inches. Comic Synopsis: Having acquired an Oan Power Ring, the irate Galius Zed turns against his comrade Hal Jordan and decides to show him what a true ring-bearer can now accomplish. Hal has little chance against a foe armed with such a superior weapon, but Galius Zed quickly learns that the ring taxes his own life energies, draining him of power and vitality. A withering Zed collapses before Hal Jordan. Hal calls to mind how this whole business got started. It began with Green Lanterns Eddore and Kaylark. Both of them had come into conflict with a trio of space pirates called the Free Lancers. The Free Lancers showed them how their masters, the Guardians of the Universe had crafted a ring that was not inhibited by materials colored yellow. This enraged Eddore and Kaylark, and drove them to renounces the Guardians. Kaylark came into possession of her own Oan ring and returned to her home planet D'xe where she crowned herself Empress. Eddore acquired an Oan Power Ring as well and returned to his native world of Tront. With the power of the ring, he forced hundreds of Trontians to fuse their essences with his own, creating an over-sized being of great power. Hal Jordan came to Tront and fought against the Eddore/Trontian entity. Channeling all of his ring's energy into the being, he overloaded it with power, causing it to collapse to the ground. "Green Lantern Vol 2 167." DC Database. N.p., n.d. Web. 22 Apr. 2015. Page Synopsis: Hal's flashback: Kaylard and Eddore are patrolling the space around OA and they see a pirate ship pulling another ship into it. They soon realize that they are being tricked and the whole thing is a decoy!

        Unpublished Typescript about George Orwell and Nineteen Eighty-Four

      (n.p): (n.p.). [ca. 1983]. In 1983, Robert Stone, National Book Award-winning novelist, was commissioned to write a piece on George Orwell and his dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, as that calendar year approached. In the piece, Stone made an effort to reclaim Orwell from the conservative right wing, which had taken his most famous, anti-totalitarian novels -- Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm -- to be explicit condemnations of the Soviet Union and Communism, and by implication all leftist thought itself. Instead, Stone argues that Orwell's writing in Homage to Catalonia -- not to mention his fighting on the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War -- identifies Orwell as someone with both a socialist sympathy and "a certain affinity with what I believe is best about the United States," a kind of Puritanism that is characterized by "rectitude...conscience and common sense." He goes on to point out that Orwell "was the sort of radical who makes enemies on both sides of epic struggles," owing to his "originality and intelligence, [and] above all his thoroughgoing honesty, [which] always got him in trouble. A writer and man more predictable and dull, less infernally scrupulous would have had a better time of it." Stone adds that Orwell was idealistic but non-ideological -- as Stone was himself -- and deeply committed to the kind of "pragmatism that has characterized American moral thinkers from Jefferson to James to Neibuhr." He concludes that "We may never produce a greater political novel than Nineteen Eighty-Four" and that "it has done its work for us" in shaping our fears and cautions sufficiently for us to have avoided the totalitarian dystopia that was latent in the post-War years of the Cold War. The confluence of writer and subject here was, in many ways, a near-perfect one but the piece seems never to have been published; we can find no record of it; a cover letter from Stone's wife, Janice, indicates this was done for Thames Television, but whether it was produced or used remains unknown to us. One of Stone's novels includes an allusion to a critical moment in Nineteen Eighty-Four: Stone's character explains that one has "to look the gray rat in the eye" -- an allusion to the torture by rats that Winston Smith, in Nineteen Eighty-Four, is faced with, which causes him to "break" and betray himself and his loved ones. 18 pages, ribbon copy typescript, with Janice Stone's cover letter, laid into an agent's folder. Fine. An unknown Robert Stone piece, on a subject that touches close to many of the central and pervasive themes of his own writings. Unique. First Edition. No Binding. Near Fine.

The uncorrected proof copy of his third collection of stories to be published by a major trade publisher, and a major literary event that confirmed Carver's preeminent place among American short story writers of the day, and signaled a full-fledged resuscitation of the short story in American literature. Signed by the author. In addition, Carver has made a change to the text in the last paragraph of the story "Careful" and initialed and dated the change on May 30, 1983. The changed text was incorporated into the published version of the story, so this was apparently a working copy of the proof. Fine in wrappers with a tinge of spine sunning. First Edition.

        William Klein: Photographe Etc. (Signed First Edition)

      Centre Georges Pompidou / Herscher, Paris 1983 - First Edition. INSCRIBED by Klein to Ira Lowe on the half-title page: "to Ira, / a little catalog not made, heureusement in USA (see page 7) / All my best / Bill."Ira Lowe was a Washington, DC based lawyer who specialized in the arts and, over the course of a lengthy career, represented some of the most significant artists and writers of the twentieth century, famously (and successfully) arguing in front of the Supreme Court for the concept of "blockage discount" in valuing artists estates. The reference in the inscription is to a image of a summons in New York State Klein received after being sued for defamation of character by Aperture and a second publisher for a million dollars each after he publicly criticized one of their books. The case was still pending at the time the surrounding interview in this book took place. Near Fine without dust jacket as issued. Small bruise to the outer edge of the front board, light rubbing to the extremities. Text in French. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Cathedral [Signed, with a Correction by Carver]

      NY: Knopf. 1983. The uncorrected proof copy of his third collection of stories to be published by a major trade publisher, and a major literary event that confirmed Carver's preeminent place among American short story writers of the day, and signaled a full-fledged resuscitation of the short story in American literature. Signed by the author. In addition, Carver has made a change to the text in the last paragraph of the story "Careful" and initialed and dated the change on May 30, 1983. The changed text was incorporated into the published version of the story, so this was apparently a working copy of the proof. Fine in wrappers with a tinge of spine sunning. First Edition. Softcover. Fine.
