I am thrilled with this discovery. A little different from the books I usually stock, but such a good find I snapped it up. I am lucky enough to live near Cambridge, UK and so inevitably as I'm always hunting for books in a city of academics I'm lucky enough to get to see some good stuff. This was originally owned by one of those Cambridge academics and has to go down as one of my best ever finds. It is a nice connection to the city where I found it. Oppenheimer spent two terms at Cambridge, before taking up a place at the University of Göttingen to study under Max Born.

An extremely scarce original transcript from the United States Atomic Energy Commission of their hearing of the Personnel Security Board into the security clearance of J Robert Oppenheimer. This is the hearing depicted at length in the movie. It was held in Washington D.C. between April 12th and May 6th, 1954.

A large paperback volume of nearly 1,000 pages. It has survived well. The main condition points to note are some creasing to the front cover (see final three photos), and some cracking along the spine joints. With some creasing and chipping to the papered spine (see photos). Otherwise the pages are clean and tightly bound with no writing or marks.

A real chance to earn a piece of modern history. Your copy of In the Matter of J Robert Oppenheimer will be wrapped with extreme care and sent well packaged with tracking and insurance. I am always happy to include a gift card with a message in the parcel.

H 23 cm x W 15 cm, 992 pages, 1.1 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. With the exception of a small number of countries.
