        Zur Theorie der Gesellschaftsspiele'. Pp. 295-320 in: Mathematische Annalen 100 [C].

      Berlin: Julius Springer, 1928. - Entire Vol. 100 offered. Contemporary cloth. Ink stamp on title page. Corners of covers a bit worn. Else Very Good. If you need an offprint of the paper, it's going to cost you over $20,000. 'John von Neumann single-handedly invented game theory, introducing the general mathematical concept of 'strategy' in a paper on games of chance ([1928]: 295-320). This contained the proof of his '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'.' (Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, p.473, under the 1944 monograph co-authored with Morgenstern). 'Our considerations will lead to the application of the mathematical theory of 'games of strategy' developed by one of us in several successive stages in 1928 and 1940-1951. The first phases of this work were published: J. von Neumann, 'Zur Theorie der Gesellschaftsspiele,' . . . The subsequent completion of the theory, as well as the more detailed elaboration of the considerations of loc. cit. above, are published here for the first time.' (Von Neumann & Morgenstern: The Theory of Games and Economic Behavior, 1944, p.1). Von Neumann's 1928 paper 'contained a long and difficult existence proof for the equilibrium of the two- person, discrete game. . . . Twenty-five years later, George B. Dantzig showed how linear programming provides a constructive proof for finding the solution to any two-person matrix game.' (Gass & Assad: Annotated Timeline of Operations Research, p.36).

Full collations are given for all works, even for such titles as 'The Sporting Magazine' and 'Annals of Sporting.' The Podeschi Mellon catalogue refers to it as a classic example of the sumptuous, old-style, privately produced bibliographical catalogue.

        [Autograph Letter, Signed "Pio Baroja"]

      Hotel Oriente, Barcelona. 25 March [no year, but likely prior to 1928].. Three and one-half pages, in ink, on rectos and versos of two octavo sheets of Hotel Oriente stationary. Horizontal folds, with clean short breaks at edges of folds (with one tissue repair at one edge), but good to very good. A very good letter, in his native Spanish, to his distinguished friend, "Sr. Don T. Moreno- Lasalle"(?). He comments about efforts by parties to get him to come to the US to give lectures, and about his fruitless attempts to learn English. He notes the possibility that his novel, EL ÁRBOL DE LA CIENCIA (1911), will be translated into English, and comments on the wearisome intricacies of the business details attending publication of his work. He comments as well about the spiritual value and evolutionary aspects of his work as a writer. Baroja (1872 - 1956) was among the first tier of Spanish novelists of his generation, and his work was greatly admired by Hemingway (upon whom he had considerable stylistic influence), Dos Passos, and others. Knopf published THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE in an English translation by Aubrey F.G. Bell in 1928, thus providing a potential "no later than" date for this letter.

        LES FLEURS DU MAL

      - Paris, G. Govone éditeur, 1928. In-4 (28x34) demi-maroquin vert, dos à nerfs, auteur et titre dorés, tête dorée, couvertures et dos conservés, tête dorée, (338pp+index+suite). Exceptionnel ouvrage, tiré à 353 exemplaires, celui-ci sur Hollande, comportant 33 illustrations couleurs de MARIETTE LYDIS, un portrait de Baudelaire par lui-même et un fac-similé de manuscrit. Notre exemplaire est enrichi de LA SUITE DE 10 BURINS ET UN PORTRAIT DE DENIS VOLX; cette suite fut éditée en 1918 à 400 exemplaires par Rouam; l'illustrateur souhaitait donner "la traduction fidèle, l'expression saisissante du chef-d'oeuvre "; ces gravures étaient destinées à venir compléter toutes les éditions existantes ou à venir des Fleurs du Mal, quel que soit le format, pour ce faire de grandes marges ont été prévues; (Monod, 1089; 1073). M. Lydis était artiste peintre et illustratrice et collabora à de nombreux ouvrages; on a pu parfois lui reprocher une certaine uniformité notamment dans ses visages; cet ouvrage qui se place assez tôt dans son oeuvre séduit au contraire par la qualité et la vivacité de son trait; probablement l'une de ses meilleures productions. La réunion du livre et de cette suite est très rare. Dos un peu insolé et plus sombre, sinon l'ensemble est en parfait état et bien relié. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die Zeitung. Ein System der Zeitungskunde (Journalistik),

      Mannheim / Berlin / Leipzig Bensheimer Verlag, 1928 - Vollständige Ausgabe in vier Bänden, aufwendig privat gebunden in Halbleder OHLdr / HLdr 8vo im Format cm) mit Rückentitel in Goldprägung und Kopffarbschnitt: gediegene Handeinbände der Zeit aus den Jahren 1928-1930: XX,1031, 620, 485, 582 Seiten, braunes Maroquin mit vier unechten Bünden, Lederecken und Gewebe-Innenfälzen, rote Leder-Rückenschilder mit Goldprägung mittels Handvergoldung, handgestochene Kopfbänder). - Erstausgabe, EA, erste Auflage in sehr guter Erhaltung, Luxusausgabe, Standardwerk in einem sehr schönen Exemplar. Mit einem umfangreichen Literaturverzeichnis zur Zeitungswissenschaft sowie einem Vorwort des Verfassers. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Bei Dünndruckpapier werden die Lagen zum Heften leicht vorgeritzt. Ein Einsägen oder gar Einraspeln der Bünde findet nicht statt. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."
