        The Godfather / A Novel (SIGNED)

      J.P. Putnam's Sons, New York 1990 - Signed in green felt-tip directly (and somewhat diagonally) to the FFE: "For Ellie Peters / With many thanks for all her kindness / Mario Puzo." Signature is a good match for others found online. First name of addressee could also be "Elke." Puzo signed directly to the page, this is NOT a signed bookplate nor a "tipped-in page." DJ front flap priced $24.95 / $34.95 CAN. "Thirty-first printing" stated. Only date is 1969 copyright date; we ESTIMATE 1990 printing date based on the fact there is a small Doubleday Book Shop price tag to rear DJ panel and a "Doubleday Book Shops / An American Tradition for 80 Years . . . Books of All Publishers Since 1910" cardboard bookmark laid in. Bookmark lists 41 Doubleday shops (plus two "Traveldays" book shops), and we know there were 41 Doubleday shops when the chain was acquired by Barnes & Noble from Bertelsmann in 1990. (What we don't know is for how long thereafter B&N continued to operate those shops under the Doubleday name -- the $24.95 list price would have remained typical through about 1994.) Pages moderately age-toned to edges. Quarter-bound in black cloth; NO book-club deboss. 446 pp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Omeros

      New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1990. First edition of the Nobel Prize-winning author's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author, "To Quincy and Margaret love Derek San Diego/ La Jolla April 2000." The recipients were Quincy Troupe and his wife, Margaret. Troupe is a an American poet, editor and biographer of Miles Davis. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Omeros is an epic poem based on Homer and Odysseus. The title, which is Homer's name in Greek, nods to the wandering and exile of the great poet himself, who learned and suffered while traveling. "No poet rivals Mr. Walcott in humor, emotional depth, lavish inventiveness in language, or the ability to express the thoughts of his characters and compel the reader to follow the swift mutations of ideas and images in their minds. This wonderful story moves in a spiral, replicating human thought, and in the end, surprisingly, it makes us realize that history, all of it, belongs to us" (Mary Lefkowitz, The New York Times Book Review).

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

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF 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 gluing 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).

There are six separate loose etchings included with this deluxe copy, each numbered and signed. The cassette recording of the play was produced and recorded October 4, 1979 at Elephant Recording Studio, London, with Charles Turner in the role of Fungus and Jack le White as Curmudgeonly. The play, "Fungus & Curmudgeonly," was written in 1976 and performed for the first time at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival that year then in Stratford-upon-Avon at the Macbeth Room, Shakespeare Hotel in summer 1977. Gerardo Guerrieri, Theatre Critic for "Il Giorno" Milan wrote, ".The play emerges as a formidable parody of Homo Shakespearianus, to be put in a Museum of Natural History. The Man-Showman, half actor with his unstoppable desire for applause.and half voyeur.The play has density, authenticity and originality." This is certainly one of d'Arbeloff's most important works. She has had a one- woman show at the Victoria and Albert and her books are in the Tate, Rijksmuseum Meermanno Westreenainum, Kunstgewerbe Museum, Biblioteca Nazionale, Australian National Library, Library of Congress, Newberry, Bridwell, Humanities Research Center, Houghton, Firestone, Grunwald Center, etc. See an Image.
