THE PRINCIPLES OF QUANTUM MECHANICS

Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1930. First Edition. Hardcover. Influential monograph concerned with the mathematical and theoretical aspects of quantum mechanics. It leaves classical physics behind after the first chapter, presenting the subject with a logical structure. Among the most significant physicists of the 20th century, Dirac (1902-84) shared the 1933 Nobel Prize with Erwin Schrodinger "for the discovery of new productive forms of atomic theory." From the library of Franz Sondheimer, the German-born scientist who, with Robert Burns Woodward, was the first to completely synthesize a nonaromatic steroid, with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Tall octavo: x, 257 p. Original green cloth binding, with gilt titles. Period previous owner's ink signature to the front flyleaf, with the vestiges of two small strips of tape to the rear pastedown.
