ASTON, F.W. Isotopes. 152 pages. Illustrated. 8vo, cloth. FIRST EDITION. London: Edward Arnold. 1922. QD463 .A7
Aston (1877-1945) received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1922. This is his classic publication in which he details his experiments demonstrating the existence of isotopes. This work led to "the reconstruction of the table of atomic weights. . . (showing) that they are only in exceptional cases whole numbers when considered as multiples of the weight of a hydrogen atom. The ultimate consequences of these discrepancies are far-reaching. The ratio between hydrogen and helium is not 4:1 as it 'should' be, but rather less; which means that when four atoms of hydrogen are transformed into one helium atom some matter is annihilated. In fact this is an example of the interchangeability between mass and energy which is postulated in Einstein's 'General Theory of Relativity'." -PMM 412; Heirs of Hippocrates 1183.

PMM 393; Dibner 163. Within months after Roentgen's discovery, Becquerel discovered the new and previously unsuspected property which produced X-rays, and before the end of the year he coined the term "radioactivité." Becquerel continued his researches until 1903 when he summed up his results in the definitive work above. It contains a chronological narrative of his investigations, his mature conclusions, and a bibliography of 214 treatises and papers on radioactivity. LEWIS STRAUSS'S COPY, with an 8-line autograph note initialled by Strauss inserted, summarizing the importance of the work and indicating that he "bought this from E. Offenbacher in 1966."

FIRST APPEARANCE of Bohr's epoch-making quantum theoretic reformulation of atomic theory, which revolutionized modern views of the atom. "In his great papers of 1913, Bohr presented his theory as being founded upon two postulates, whose formulation he refined in later papers. The first postulate enunciates the existence of stationary states of an atomic system, the behavior of which may be described in terms of classical mechanics; the second postulate states that the transition of the system from one stationary state to another is a nonclassical process, accompanied by the emission or absorption of one quantum of homogeneous radiation..." -DSB II, 244.

PMM 394b. The collected writings of Curie, whose tragic death at the age of 47 after being hit by a truck was a terrible loss to science. Curie's work can be divided into 3 periods. The first concerned the physics of crystals, and led to the discovery of piezoelectricity. In the second period Curie concentrated on theoretical problems of crystallography and magnetism. The third period mainly involved study of radioactivity with his wife, Marie, in perhaps the greatest and most romantic husband/wife collaboration in the history of science. The above volume includes an important 22-page biographical tribute by Marie.

"[Hahn & Strassmann] found that barium, a medium-weight element, was one of the products when uranium was bombarded by neutrons. . . The presence of barium meant that uranium had been split into two nearly equal fragments, which represented a tremendous jump in energy over all previous transmutation reactions. Calculations showed that such a reaction should yield 10 to 100 times the energy of less violent nuclear disintegrations." -Ency. Brit, (1971).

FIRST EDITION AND APPEARANCE OF ONE OF THE MOST MOMENTOUS SCIENTIFIC PAPERS EVER PUBLISHED, IN WHICH NUCLEAR FISSION IS FIRST RECOGNIZED AND NAMED. PMM 422; Smyth, p. 10 ff. Meitner and Frisch here report their interpretation of the recent results achieved by Hahn & Strassmann with the following now-famous lines: "It seems therefore possible that the uranium nucleus has only small stability of form, and may, after neutron capture, divide itself into two nuclei of roughly equal size. . . ." Meitner and Frisch christened the "new type of nuclear reaction 'Nuclear Fission.'" The present volume also includes other important related contributions by Meitner, Frisch, and Niels Bohr.

PMM 407. Moseley's work, first reported here, gave experimental confirmation that it is nuclear charge (atomic number), not atomic weight, that determines the properties of the elements. "Considered by Rutherford as 'a born experimenter,' Moseley in his brief life established one great fact-the primacy of atomic number. On this basis all later developments in nuclear physics and atomic chemistry have been built." -Williams, p. 380.

J.A.R. Newlands is credited with taking the pioneering step toward the discovery of the periodic law. "In 1864 he arranged the elements in the order of increasing atomic weights, and noticed that after each interval of eight elements, similar physical and chemical properties reappeared. . . but for this law of octaves he gained nothing but public ridicule from the English Chemical Society." -Weeks. In 1884, Newlands collected his papers on the subject into the present monograph in an attempt to support his priority over Mendeleev.

The Author developed a "Radium Hound," actually a portable electroscope, to aid in the recovery of lost or stolen radium. In the present work, he recounts a number of case histories in a most amusing style. One need only note here that in 1938 a 100 milligram specimen of radium cost $12,000-a fact which justified heroic efforts in finding and recovering wayward radium samples-above and beyond the obvious public health factors. This is a very scarce book.

Summary of 7 years research at the Cavendish Laboratory. Thomson's work on positive rays, in conjunction with F.W. Aston, was the beginning of the method of analysis now called mass spectrography. By means of the magnetic deflection of positive ions, Aston & Thomson demonstrated that neon (atomic weight about 20) had a minor component of mass 22, a major step toward the discovery of the nature of isotopes. See PMM 386 & 412.

SMYTH, HENRY DEWOLF. A General Account of the Development of Methods of Using Atomic Energy for Military Purposes under the auspices of the United States Government 1940-45. 97 leaves printed offset from typescript. 4to, original cream-colored wrappers, stapled. (Washington, D.C.). August 1945. QC173 .S474 1945a
FIRST ISSUE of the announcement of the work leading to the development of the atomic bomb, SIGNED BY SMYTH on the title-page. This is the rare "lithoprint" version printed offset from typescript in a very small edition for distribution to the press in advance of the 8vo letterpress edition printed shortly after by the USGPO. Released only 5 days after Hiroshima, the Smyth report was "a remarkably full and candid account of the development work carried out. . . under the code name of 'Manhattan District' which culminated in the production of the first atomic bomb." -PMM 422e; Coleman 3.

SMYTH, HENRY DEWOLF. A General Account of Methods of Using Atomic Energy for Military Purposes. vii, 182 pages. 8vo, printed wrappers. Washington, D.C. August 1945. QC173 .S55 1945
FIRST (second?) PUBLISHED EDITION of the Smyth report. Coleman 5. There is some uncertainty as to the exact date of issue. Coleman, page 209, notes that it was "probably published September 20 plus or minus five days." It is thus quite possible that this issue, usually offered by booksellers as the 'first published edition,' actually appeared after the Princeton "'trade' edition, which was advertised as "just published" in the New York Times Book Review September 16, 1945.

Acerbic rebuttal of the "fantastic renewal of the attempts to discredit the scientists who worked on the atomic bomb. . . It is significant that the question of reappointment or replacement of the present members of the Atomic Energy Commission comes up this August. I wonder if a certain clique of the military is working closely with the chairman of the House Committee on Un-American Activities, [i.e. Joseph McCarthy] in an effort to so discredit civilian control that the army will be handed back the atomic energy project on a platter appropriately stained with the sacrificial blood of the lopped-off heads of our scientists who advocated civilian control."

"The series traces the development of nuclear weapons and evolution of nuclear strategy in the context of international and domestic politics." See entry under Newhouse, this section, for the accompanying text volume. The present reviewer found both the book and the video series factually accurate but deficient in its presentation of contemporary dissenting views (for example, the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists receives no mention at all) and in its critical analysis of the underlying causes behind the events chronicled.
