CONDON, E.U. and SHORTLEY, G.H.
The Theory of Atomic Spectra
Cambridge: University Press, 1935. Large Quarto, original navy cloth. A very presentable near-fine copy. First edition of this "monumental book the most comprehensive account of our understanding of atomic spectra" (Reviews of Modern Physics). Published in 1935, "this book was the first complete theoretical treatment of atomic spectra based upon quantum mechanical principles. it has remained the only one and has served half a generation of atomic physicists as an indispensable source of information and as a guide in further detailed research" (Science, 116:3007, 1810). "Its power and thoroughness leave the general impression of a work of the first rank, which successfully unifies the existing state of our knowledge, and will prove for many years a starting point for further researches and an inspiration to those who may undertake them" (contemporary review, Nature). Without the ultra-rare dust jacket. Interior with only a few spots of marginal soiling, only light wear and slight fading to the spine lettering. Quite scarce in any condition, especially so in In Near-fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Reginald C. Williams Rare Books [Glendale, CA, U.S.A.]
