EVERETT, Hugh. "Relative State Formulation of Quantum Mechanics", in: Reviews of Modern Physics, vol. 29, no. 3, July, 1957, pp. 454-62, the entire issue (pp. 255-546) in original orange printed wrappers. Lancaster: American Institute of Physics, 1957. First edition. (Interesting to note Everett's address for the article: "Present address: Weapons Systems Evaluation Group, The Pentagon, Washington, D. C.") $1350
Bound in a sturdy/stout buckram binding, with all wrappers bound in, for volumes 28 & 29, 1956 & 1957. Each wrapper has a library stamp on the front. The binding has an embossed call number on the spine, and the page edges top and bottom have a rubber stamped library name. Nice fresh copy though on the inside.
“The Many-Worlds Interpretation (MWI) is an approach to quantum mechanics according to which, in addition to the world we are aware of directly, there are many other similar worlds which exist in parallel at the same space and time. The existence of the other worlds makes it possible to remove randomness and action at a distance [e.g., the EPR paradox] from quantum theory and thus from all physics.”--Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
