Description

    An Excellent and Comprehensive Collection of an Important German Physics Journal, with Contributions by Einstein, Heisenberg, Bohr, and Many More

    [Physics]. [Karl Scheel, editor]. Zeitschrift fur Physik. Braunschweig and Berlin: Friedr. Vieweg & Sohn; Julius Springer, [1920-1936]. First editions. Volumes 3 to 103, inclusive. Illustrated with tables, graphs, diagrams, etc. Text in German. Volumes 3 to 80 uniformly bound in full blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt. Spines a bit browned, some rubbing or bumping to bindings. Volumes 81 to 103 in fascicle issues with six numbers per volume. Original wrappers, some with light wear, others with heavier wear, toning. Overall, a very good copy of this set, hardly ever seen this large.
    This series was a major journal issued by the German Physical Society and edited by Karl Scheel in the 1920's and 1930's. Major physicists of the generation contributed to its pages. In 1919, the the Society formed a committee consisting of Albert Einstein, Eugen Goldstein, Fritz Haber, E. Jahnke, Karl Scheel and Wilhelm Westphal, who recommended that a new journal, the Zeitschrift fur Physik, be established for original research articles, which began publication the following year. During the early twentieth century, this publication became one of the most prestigious journals in physics, with its golden years coinciding with the rising years of quantum mechanics. Zeitschrift fur Physik was published from 1920 until 1997 by Springer Verlag under the auspices of the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft. This collection of volumes represents the era of Karl Scheel, who became its first editor and served until his death in 1936. The journal under his stewardship grew rapidly, issuing fifty volumes, by 1928, and the 100th by 1936. Under Sheel, it established itself as the home of the new "Atomphysik" of the N. Bohr's, A. Sommerfeld's, and M. Born's schools. M. Friedmann published here his famous cosmological solutions to Einstein's theory of gravitation. As quantum theory took shape, the leading papers of O. Stern, W. Gerlach, W. Bothe, H. Geiger, M. Born, and others appeared in Zeitschrift fur Physik. The new generation of theoretical physicists included W. Heisenberg, P. Jordan, W. Pauli, P. Wigner, and many more, who developed the series of remarkable papers on matrix mechanics, transformation theory and first ideas on quantum field theory. Autorenregisters appear in each issue, with five-volume cumulative listings, and with a fascicle issue [1936] reporting Banden 51 through 100.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
