We offer here these three papers IN THE ORIGINAL WRAPS, contained in Reviews of Modern Physics, a) Volume 8, No 2, April 1936: "Nuclear Physics A. Stationary States of Nuclei" by H. A. Bethe and R. F. Bacher (pages 82-229), b) Volume 9, No 2, April, 1937: "Nuclear Physics, Theoretical" by H. A. Bethe (pages 69-244, entire issue), and c) Volume 9, No 3, July 1937: "Nuclear Physics C. Nuclear Dynamics, Experimental" by M. Stanley Livingston and H. A. Bethe (pages 245-390, entire issue).

Wraps. [18890]

"During the 1930s, Hans Bethe made many of his major contributions to nuclear physics. The first was a series of three lengthy papers in the Journal Reviews of Modern Physics in 1936 and 1937 comprising almost 500 pages of a comprehensive review of experimental and theoretical nuclear physics...The three papers...were so comprehensive that together they became known as the Bethe Bible and 50 years later [were] republished as a book by the American Institute of Physics...The significance of his work in theoretical physics was underscored by Professor O. Klein...[who mentioned Bethe's Bible] at the presentation of the Nobel Prize to Hans Bethe on December 11, 1967. (see L'Annunziata, Radioactivity, Elsevier, 2007)
