2 ACIOLI, J.L. & S.W. MacDOWELL. “The K+?3 and K+e3 Decay through a Current of Definite Isotopic Rank.”
Offprint from: Il Nuovo Cimento, Serie X, Vol. 24, 16 Maggio 1962. 1962 
pp. 606-613. (240 x 170 mm). 8 pp. 4 figs. Stapled pages. Very good. Summary: The energy distribution and polarization of muons and electrons are calculated assuming an interaction through a vector current of definite isospin character, and using form factors obtained by means of dispersion relations. The effect of the K* resonance is taken into account. The spectra, and to a lesser extent the polarization, are quite insensitive to this effect.

10 ALVAREZ, Luis W. (1911-1988); Felix BLOCH (1905-1983). A Quantitative Determination of the Neutron Moment in Absolute Nuclear Magnetons.
Lancaster, PA: American Physical Society, 1940.

Full green gilt-stamped buckram. Library bookplate. Very good. Alvarez, American experimental physicist, inventor, and professor at UC Berkeley, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1968, For his decisive contributions to elementary particle physics, in particular the discovery of a large number of resonant states, made possible through his development of the technique of using hydrogen bubble chambers and data analysis. Felix Bloch (1905 1983), Swiss physicist, schooled at the Cantonal Gymnasium in Zurich and at the Eidgenssische Technische Hochschule (ETHZ), then at Zurich =, where he studied under Peter Debye, Hermann Weyl, Erwin Schrdinger (Bloch was a classmate of John von Neumann), Wolfgang Pauli, Niels Bohr, and also Enrico Fermi, then for reasons of Hitlers Germany and being Jewish, he immigrated to the US and worked at both Stanford University and UC Berkeley. He and Edward Mills Purcell were each awarded the 1952 Nobel Prize for their development of new ways and methods for nuclear magnetic precision measurements.

Dissertatio de Centro Gravitatis in Subsidium Suorum Discipulorum. [With]: Assertiones ex universa Physica et Mathesi Elememtari ..., AMBSCHELL, Anton [Antonio]; Martin JEELL.
13 AMBSCHELL, Anton [Antonio]; Martin JEELL. Dissertatio de Centro Gravitatis in Subsidium Suorum Discipulorum. [With]: Assertiones ex universa Physica et Mathesi Elememtari ...
Labaci, typis Egerianis, 1779. 
2 works in 1 volume. Sm. 8vo. [ii], 239; 40 pp. 2 large folding engraved plates. Original full mottled blind-ruled calf, spine flat-backed but with elaborate gilt tooling, edges red. EXTREMELY RARE. First and only editions. The first work deals with the center of gravity and the second relates to physics and mathematics. Stanislav Juznic & Bruno Besser write of Ambschells devoted support for Boscovich. Anton Ambschell (1749/51-1821), Jesuit, a physicist and mathematician, was born December 10, 1749 in Cirknica, and died July 14, 1821 in Bratislava. He was accepted into the Jesuit order in 1768, from 1773 he was professor of physics at the Ljubljana Jesuit Lyceum. He was deposed in 1785 as rector because of improper conduct by a professor of logic and metaphysics, Nowak, then to 1804 prof. physics and mechanics at the University of Vienna from 1809 onwards lector and canon in Bratislava, where he died. The Ljubljana Rector and later Viennese Professor Anton Ambschell promoted Boscovich in his textbooks which were famous for Ambschell and his teacher Herberts very first comparatively exact measurement of the water compressibility. The suppression of the Jesuit order obstructed the development of Boscovichs ideas but in no way removed them from the scientific or students scene. The first work is known in only one other copy in the National & University of Slovenia [WorldCat]. The second work, Assertiones ex universa Physica et Mathesi Elememtari, is held at two locations: National library information system of Slovenia, Maribor, and National and University Library [Narodna in univerzitetna knjiznica]. See: Juni?, Stanislav: Ambschell, Anton (17511821). Slovenska biografija. Znanstvenoraziskovalni center SAZU, 2013. Full title: Dissertatio de Centro Gravitatis in Subsidium Suorum Discipulorum.
