        Black Gold an African-American, "Race Film" Silent Movie Lobby Cards, Poster, and Pressbook

      Jacksonville, FL: Norman Studios, 1928. Ephemera. Very Good. A complete set of all eight lobby cards for the "All Colored Cast" film Black Gold along with a half-sheet (22" x 28" when unfolded) movie poster-press book featuring one quarter-sheet orange and blue poster, one quarter-sheet blue and white poster, illustrations of the lobby cards, marketing suggestions, and advertising for other Norman films. The lobby cards are in nice shape with some light foxing, edge wear, and corner pinholes. The half-sheet poster-press book is in very good shape and has no wear. There are some small splits along the orignial mailing folds. Race films, which are films specifically produced for African-American audiences featuring an African-American cast, first made their appearance around 1915. About 500 different films were produced, and they proved to be exceptionally popular in their time, although they have been largely forgotten or ignored by film historians. Norman Studios' most famous and popular film was Black Gold, a drama about the oil business based upon the true story of John Crisp, the owner of three wells in the all black city of Tatums, Oklahoma. The movie starred "Lawrence Criner and Katherine Boyd. Original Lafayette Players. Steve Reynold, "Peg" Alfred Norcom, United States Marshall L. B. Tatums, and the Entire City of Tatums, Okla." The half-sheet poster-press book is relatively uncommon although a more frequently found smaller version of it exists without the blue and white poster and much of the other information. The lobby cards are exceptionally scarce.

        A collection of notebooks, offprints, and books from the estate of Max Newman.

      1928–59 1928 - Together, 29 items: 3 printed books, one manuscript notebook, one autograph album, and 24 offprints. Very light toning and spotting, extremities slightly bumped and occasionally a little worn, a few light stains, some minor nicks and chips to margins. Minor rust stains to wrappers and gutters of offprints. Generally a good state of preservation. Max Newman (1897–1984) was one of the most significant British mathematicians of his generation and a leading pioneer in modern computer science. After early pioneering work on combinatory (or geometric) topology, logic and Boolean algebras, he was elected FRS in 1939. During the Second World War, in 1942, he joined the government code and cypher school at Bletchley Park. There he realised that some of the methods used by the Bletchley codebreakers would be better done with the help of rapid, special-purpose electronic machinery employing paper tape and photoelectric cells; he and Alan Turing proposed the logical requirements for such machinery. These requirements formed the basis of practical machines, culminating with the Colossus, the world's first large-scale electronic computer. The section at Bletchley that used the machinery was headed by Newman and was called the Newmanry. From 1945 to 1964 Newman was the Fielden professor of mathematics at Manchester University, where he established the Royal Society Computing Machine Laboratory, which produced the first working stored program electronic computer in 1948. This collection of papers from his family includes an autograph album owned by his son William, who evidently took the opportunity of various conferences and academic gatherings to garner the signatures of some of the most important scientists of the mid-century, including that of Alan Turing. Newman remained close to Turing throughout his career. It was he who wrote the Royal Society's Memoir, and his wife, Lyn Irvine, who supplied the preface to Sara Turing's biography of her tragic son. The collection also includes one of Newman's own early notebooks, showing his intellectual concerns in the 1920s, and a number of offprints, including three of his own articles and a presentation copy. The collection comprises: NOTEBOOKS a. Autograph album. Oblong duodecimo, 67 pages (white, pink, and blue), original black leather-grain boards, 'Autographs' to front board gilt, edges purple. "Begun 14 July 1951" in William Newman's childish hand on the front pastedown. About 100 autographs by various famous mathematicians and scientists, including Alan Turing, Hassler Whitney, Patrick Blackett, Stan Frankel, Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander, John Cockcroft. Also Carl L. Siegel and Jan A. Rajchman. Spine gently cocked, spine ends and edges of boards slightly rubbed, very minor wear to top edge of front board. b. Max Newman's Math Diary. Duodecimo, green cloth wrappers, "Math Diary" handwritten on front wrapper. 176 pages, mostly completed in ink and pencil. August 1924–December 1932 as far as dated entries are concerned. Edges speckled green. Extremities slightly rubbed, a couple of small white marks (scuff marks?) to front wrapper. Fowler's problem, (ca p. 94); Reading, summer 28 (p. 83), and notes on theorems, equations, etc. PRINTED BOOKS A. HARTREE, D. R. Calculating Machines: Recent & Prospective Developments and their impact on Mathematical Physics. Inaugural Lecture by the author. (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1947.) Small quarto. Original printed wrappers, 2 plates. With Newman's ownership inscription to half-title. Wrappers toned and partially loose along spine, spine ends a little chipped, small dark stain to lower corner of front wrapper. An excellent copy. B. SHANNON, Claude E., & Warren Weaver. The Mathematical Theory and of Communication. (Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1949). Original dark red cloth, titles to spine in silver. Spine a little faded, spine ends and corners lightly rubbed and bumped, top edge of rear board with small light marks. An excellent copy. C

        'The Mint' and Later Writings About Service Life The large format limited edition, copy #43 of 50 bound in full goatskin and slipcased

      Fordingbridge, Hampshire: Castle Hill Press, 2009. Limited Edition. Full Leather. This Castle Hill Press limited large format edition publishes the original (1928) text of The Mint, together with significant "Later Writings about Service Life" and additional unpublished material. Here is copy #43 of just 50 issued thus, unique in both binding and content. The Mint is T.E. Lawrence's unstintingly candid portrait about life in Royal Air Force ranks. "I set out to give a picture of the R.A.F, and my picture might be impressive and clever if I showed only the shadow of it... but I was not making a work of art, but a portrait." T.E. Lawrence (1888-1935) found fame as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence told the tale of this time in Seven Pillars of Wisdom, a work with a tortuous writing, editing, and publishing history culminating in posthumous publication. Perhaps equally tortuous is the tale of how this story about the R.A.F. was written and published. In a state of nervous exhaustion following the First World War, his work on the post-war settlement, and writing and re-writing Seven Pillars of Wisdom, in 1922, Lawrence enlisted in the ranks of the R.A.F. under the name of John Hume Ross. He swiftly concluded "there is grand stuff here, and if I could write it..." so he began making notes "scribbled at night, between last post and lights out, in bed." In January 1923 his identity became public and he was discharged from the R.A.F., but allowed to re-enlist two and a half years later, this time using the surname "Shaw", under which he had meanwhile served in the Tank Corps. On re-enlistment, he resumed making notes. In 1927, while serving in Karachi, Lawrence arranged these notes into a manuscript which he circulated to a small number of people, including Air Marshal Hugh Trenchard. As with Seven Pillars of Wisdom, publishers were eager, but Lawrence resisted, in part due to Trenchard's concerns. A saga followed in which efforts were made to control publication via uncirculated copyright editions in both the U.S. and Britain; the book remained unavailable to the public. Lawrence made revisions in the last months of his life with a possible view to publication in a private edition (as he had done with the 1926 Subscriber's Edition of Seven Pillars of Wisdom), but the work remained unpublished until 1955, after the death of an officer described unfavorably in the text. Even then, the British edition blanked out objectionable words and substituted name changes to avoid libel. This spectacular limited edition of The Mint is the most comprehensive and elaborate yet published, unique in both binding and content. This copy is pristine, in new condition direct from the publisher. The edition "contains the full 1928 text of The Mint, together with a selection of Lawrence's later writings about his life in the ranks... The narrative of Lawrence's RAF years therefore begins in 1922 and ends with his retirement in February 1935... The result is a far more interesting version of Lawrence's second book..." Unique to these 50 copies are 8 pages of additional notes and letters. These 50 copies are bound in full blue-grey goatskin with raised spine bands, head and foot bands, gilt edges, silk ribbon place marker, and dark grey endpapers illustrated with a seaplane design. The Uxbridge chapters are printed on gray paper, while the Service chapters and the Later Writings About Service Life, and Uxbridge and Cranwell Notes (unique to this edition) are printed on white paper. The limitation page is hand-numbered and the publisher's Introduction is hand-signed. The pale blue cloth covered slipcase is lined in dark blue felt.

Oscar Wilde's Tale The Birthday of the InfantaIllustrated by AlastairA Presentation Copy From Alastair to the French Writer and Bibliophile Pierre Mornand ALASTAIR [VOIGHT, Hans Henning, illustrator]. WILDE, Oscar. The Birthday of the Infanta. With Illustrations by Alastair. Paris: The Black Sun Press, Editions Narcisse, 1928.One of one-hundred copies on Hollande Van Gelder Zonen (this copy Examplaire "hors commerce"). Quarto 11 x 9 1/8 inches; 280 x 232 mm.). [12], 39, [40], [2, blank], [1, limitation], [1, blank] pp. With eight plates illustrated in brownish-gold and black, and one plate illustrated in red and black. Two additional color drawings in the text (page 1 and page [40]).Original wrappers printed in brown and black with original glassine wrapper. Complete with the original silver cardboard chemise and silver cardboard slipcase. A very fine copy.Neatly inscribed by Alastair in blue ink on the front free-endpaper to "Pierre Mornand" "En Souvenir de L'inconnu [in remembrance of the unknown] Alastair"Inscribed copies of Alastair's books are very rare.Pierre Mornand (born 1884) was a French writer and bibliophile. He was the editor-in-chief of Le Courrier graphique.Alastair (Hans Henning Voight) 1887-1969, was a a writer, artist, dancer, and illustrator. His drawings were inspired by the work of Aubrey Beardsley, and combines his elegant skill with his fascination of the perverse, sinister, and satanic. The Crosby's published this tale from Wilde primarily to provide Alastair's interpretation of Wilde's story. As Harry Crosby states in the preface " That Wilde should have written the Birthday of the Infanta was natural, that Alastair should have illustrated it was inevitable."The Birthday of the Infanta was first seen separately in 1905 without illustrations. It is a tale taken and reprinted from A House of Pomegranates which was first published in 1891 without much success. The story is about the love an ugly dwarf feels for the princess and how he is ridiculed. Finally he dies of a broken heart. This tale, as in the others in A House of Pomegranates was written during a time of turmoil in the life of Oscar Wilde and it demonstrates his gift for perceiving life's misfortunes with innocence and imagination despite the nasty rumors that were circulating about him at the time.Minkoff A13.

        Zur Theorie der Gesellschaftsspiele [ On the Theory of Games ]

      Berlin: Julius Springer, 1928. First Edition. Cloth. Near Fine. First Edition. IV, [1]-751, [1] pages. 8vo. Later blue cloth with gilt titling "Mathematische Annalen | 100 | 1928" on spine panel. Upper corner of textblock bumped, otherwise bright and clean internally with just a few pencilled notations. Cloth. The first paper and most important paper by von Neumann related to the Theory of Games, where he establishes his minimax theorem and offers the first general proof. A fundamentally important piece of mathematics that has established and/or significantly enhanced many fields, not the least of which is economics. "The first proof of the minimax theorem for two-person games of chance and skill with any finite number of pure strategies was given by John von Neumann (1928) in a paper presented to the Gottingen Mathematical Society on 7 December 1926...John von Neumann deserves the credit for the first general proof of the minimax theorem." (Weintraub, pp 24-25) "...John von Neumann single-handely invented game theory, introducing the genral mathematical concept of 'strategy' in [the present paper which ] contained the proof of his famous 'minimax' theorem that says 'a strategy exists that guarantees, for each player, a maximum payoff assuming that the adversary acts so as to minimize that payoff." OOC 953. "The role as founder is even more obvious for the theory of games, which von Neumann, in a 1926 paper, conjured - so to speak - out of nowhere...This [minimax theory] was the starting point for far reaching generalizations, including applications to economics, a topic in which von Neumann became interested in as early as 1937 and that he developed in his major treatise written with O[skar] Morenstern, Theory of Games and Economic behavior (1944). These theories have developed into a full-fledged mathematical discipline, attracting many researchers and branching into several types of applications to the social sciences." (DSB 14, p92) The paper offered here, "Zur Theorie der Gesellschaftsspiele" was presented first at the Society meeting noted above, and then received on July 24, 1927 for initial publication here IN Mathematische Annalen 100 pp. 295 - 320, 1928. References: Weintraub, "Toward a History of Game Theory" (which traces the contributions of Borel and others and notes that von Neumann was definitely not working in a vacuum); Hook and Norman Origins of Cyberspace (#953, discussing von Neumann's joint work with Morgeenstern) ; Dictionary of Scientific Biography (for more background on von Neumann); Aspray, John von Neumann and the Origins of Modern Computing, #1928h.
