Tables; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 157 pages; An important and ground-breaking book in modern Cryptanalysis written by the first user of Statistical Analysis in this area. [Friedman].

Rubber stamps on front wrap read ?"Received/ Office of the Commander/ U. S. Atlantic Fleet Train. ?" and ?"U. S. S. Lawrence. ?" The former rubber stamp is discolored (obscuring the word ?"office?").

Lacking the upper and lower 1 ½ inches of spine. Loss at upper right of rear wrap. Other corners of wraps are creased/curled/slightly rounded (with minor effects on corners of first and last leaves). Insecting to upper portion of title and subsequent leaf and to lower margin of first several leaves. Small stain to title. 1st edition. Authored by William F. Friedman of the Signal School at Camp Vail, NJ, this is the first published work to systematize the nomenclature of cryptology, and is the first full-length book to use the term ?"cryptanalysis?" (which Friedman first coined in 1921 or 1922). It is also the first work on codebreaking published by the Federal Government. Aside from providing terminology, it serves as a manual for decoding cryptograms. The terminology and techniques that Friedman describes continue to serve as the basis of cryptology today. Some codes marked in pencil. Charts, codes and tables. A most scarce item. ; 0 .

      The Book League of America, 1924-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. A two-page letter from the Scottish anthropologist and author of the classic The Golden Bough, with the book it was once attached to.

Frazer thanks her for her article and vows to include her research about the physiological dangers of menses in future editions of the Golden Bough. Her investigations "help to show that savages are not such fools as we are apt to take them for," he writes, and signs the letter. Also includes the first volume of The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion. New York: The Book League of America, 1929. 392 p. Green cloth with gilt lettering. Vol. 1 of 2. No jacket.

This work brings to lovers of art and scholars of old industrial art, a catalogue such has not been published since the great catalogues of the Spitzer, Lanna and Morgan collections. Giving the descriptions in Danish, English and German, the possessor and the editor hope to render a service to the science of the history of art." - from Introduction.

Il s'ensuivit alors une série d'exploits - dont un ultime sauvetage sans aucune perte humaine ? qui contribua à asseoir le mythe de Shackleton. SUPERBE EXEMPLAIRE, à l'état de NEUF, CONDITION RARE.

        Modern French Music

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company. 1924. First. First edition. Blue cloth gilt. Embossed stamp of Virgil Thomson on title page, wear and small tears to cloth mostly along the bottom extremities, else very good. Inscribed by Hill: "To Virgil Garnett Thomson, long-suffering and diligent assistant, his friend, Edward Burlingame Hill. Christmas, 1924." Hill was an American composer, little remembered today, but his influence was great. Among his students at Harvard were Thomson, Leonard Bernstein, Roger Sessions, Elliott Carter, and Walter Piston. Although we can find no printed acknowledgment of Thomson in the book, the inscription would indicate that he had a considerable part in its creation. .
