Description:
¶ The TRUE FIRST EDITION of Feynman's crowning achievement, his only synthesis of quantum electrodynamics -- which was, of course, the heart of Feynman's work, and precisely the field in which he'd won his Nobel Prize: that is, for his "fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles." Gleick calls this book a model of science writing. This is the true first edition, with correct endpapers, spine, and dust-jacket, scarce on the market. -- -- References: Princeton University Press records (Princeton RBSC C0728) 214.01; Feynman papers (Caltech) 27.16; Gleick 13; Carter 88; Feynman sale 66n. -- Provenance: Private collector (Maryland).

Description:
New York, 2001 ¶ Only edition of this landmark catalogue: "[In] a charged salesroom, the Medical Library of Dr. Meyer Friedman brought an outstanding $5.8 million, double its high estimate of $2.9 million. The combination of provenance, quality and rarity resulted in frenzied bidding on numerous occasions, driving many prices to multiples of their high estimates. The sale was 100% sold, with all of the top ten lots soaring above their high estimates, and all but one shattering their previous record[s] at auction. Highlighting the sale was . . . Harvey's 1628 Exercitatio anatomica de motu cordis, which announced the discovery of the circulation of blood and sold for $748,250, far surpassing a high estimate of $400,000, and establishing a record for this work at auction." (Sotheby's.) Dr Friedman was responsible for the theory of 'type A' behavior and its links to heart disease. 176 lots. (Sale no. 7732.) ||| Collation: 270 x 211 mm: Pp [1-7] 8-154. Illustration: Numerous color and… Read more
