Erwin Schrodinger
Meine Weltansicht [signed by author's widow]
Paul Zsolnay, Hamburg; Vienna, 1961. pp 180 Schrödinger's last book, inscribed by his widow to the first post-war German Ambassador in Vienna, Carl Hermann Mueller Graaf. Anne Marie Schrödinger inscribed the book after her husband's death on the first blank to 'Ir Excellenz Herr Botschaffer Dr Mueller-Graaf . Dankbarkeit Anne Marie Schrödinger - Wein, im Oktober 1962.' The book is near fine with a little bump at the head of the upper board and a small blue mark to the foreedge, in a very good jacket, a couple of very short tears to the edges of the jacket. Schrödinger wrote this final almost metaphysical work following his return to Vienna in 1956 at the close of a remarkable career during which he won the Nobel Prize for developing a number of fundamental results in the field of quantum theory. In popular culture Schrödinger is best known for his 'Schrödinger's cat' thought-experiment. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information.
