        Identity, Variables, and Impredicative Definitions" in The Journal of Symbolic Logic, Vol. 21, No. 3, Sept. 1956, pp. 225-245 AND "Vicious Circle Principle and the Paradoxes" in The Journal of Symbolic Logic, Vol. 22, No. 3, Sept. 1957, pp. 245-249

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS, two papers (in two separate issues), of Jaako Hintikka's systematic investigation of Wittgensteinian predicate logic (W-logic), the first ever performed. Jaakko Hintikka (1929-2015) was a Finnish philosopher known for his work in logic and epistemology. He was awarded the Rolf Schook Prize in Logic & Philosophy in 2005, "widely viewed as the Nobel of its field. He is also one of only four philosophers this century to be the subject of a volume of the Library of Living Philosophers" (The Philosophers' Magazine 40, 2008, 44). "Hintikka's development of systems of modal logic, the logic of knowledge, and game-theoretic semantics was inspired in part by the Tractatus, and in part by Wittgenstein's notion of a language game" (Shapiro, Oxford Handbook, 114). In the Tractatus, Wittgenstein wrote: 'Identity of the object I express by identity of the sign and not by means of a sign of identity. Difference of the objects by difference of the signs.' Wittgenstein, however, only proposed the problem; he did not posit the answer. The two Hintikka papers offered here amplify Wittgenstein's elimination of identity (as enunciated in the Tractatus) by constructing a logic without identity. "Hintikka distinguishes the usual 'inclusive' reading of the variables (i.e. we are allowed to assign the same object to distinct variables) from the 'exclusive' reading, and then proves [his] key theorem: "[E]verything expressible in terms of the inclusive quantifiers and identity may also be expressed by means of the weakly exclusive quantifiers without using a special symbol for identity" (Logic Matters Portal; Hintikka 1956). CONDITION & DETAILS: Two issues in original paper wraps. [No place]: The Association for Symbolic Logic. Quarto. (10 x 7 inches; 250 x 175mm). Volume 21, Number 3, September 1956: Slight creasing (see photo). Bright and clean inside and out. Very good condition. Volume 21, Number 3, September 1957: Near fine condition. Bright and clean inside and out.

"Joseph Rudyard Kipling was born December 30, 1865, in Bombay, India, to a British family. When he was five years old, he was taken to England to begin his education, where he suffered deep feelings of abandonment and confusion after a pampered lifestyle as a colonial. He returned to India at the age of seventeen to work as a journalist and editor for the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore. Kipling published his first collection of verse, Departmental Ditties and Other Verses, in 1886 and his first collection of stories, Plain Tales from the Hills, in 1888. "In the early 1890s some of his poems were published in William Ernest Henley's National Observer and later collected in to Barrack-Room Ballads (1892), an immensely popular collection which contained 'Gunga Din' and 'Mandalay.' In 1892 Kipling married and moved to Vermont, where he published the two Jungle Books and began work on Kim. He returned to England with his family in 1896 and published another novel, Captains Courageous. Kipling visited South Africa during the Boer War, editing a newspaper there and writing the Just-So Stories. Kim, Kipling's most successful novel (and his last), appeared in 1901. The Kipling family moved to Sussex permanently in 1902, and he devoted the rest of his life to writing poetry and short stories, including his most famous poem, 'If-'. He died on January 18, 1936; his ashes are buried in Westminster Abbey" (Poets Organization). According to critic Douglas Kerr, "He is still an author who can inspire passionate disagreement and his place in literary and cultural history is far from settled. But as the age of the European empires recedes, he is recognized as an incomparable, if controversial, interpreter of how empire was experienced. That, and an increasing recognition of his extraordinary narrative gifts, make him a force to be reckoned with." Kipling was, purportedly, offered the post of Poet Laureate of Britain but declined the honor. He did, however, accept the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. Stewart 574.

        Film: Gegner von Heute - Freunde von Morgen [Enemy of Film Today - Friend of Film Tomorrow] (First Edition)

      Berlin: Verlag Hermann Reckendorf G.M.B.H., 1929. First Edition. First Edition. Small quarto. A companion volume to Werner Graff's "Es Kommt der Neue Fotograf," an early and highly influential study of experimental film published to coincide with the 1929 Film und Foto exhibition in Stuttgart. Illustrated with numerous photographs, film stills, and film strips, with photographic reproductions by many of the important avant-garde `artists of the era, including Man Ray, Duchamp, Leger, and Richter himself. A fascinating book from several perspectives. Not only one of the first books to attempt to characterize early avant-garde filmmaking, but a lushly produced volume, with hundreds of stills from various early experimental films, speaking not only to concept but also to technique and method. The stills selected by Richter include not only strips and stills of the films discussed, but also rare images of candid on-set images of the filmmakers at work. Fine in an Near Fine, exceptionally sharp example of the scarce dust jacket, with only a bit of horizontal creasing on the jacket spine panel to note.

        THE CANTERBURY TALES

      Waltham St. Lawrence: Golden Cockerel Press, 1929-31. No. 343 OF 485 COPIES on paper (and 15 on vellum) n. With the "Four Gospels" of 1931 and "Troilus and Criseyde" of 1927, this is one of the three greatest Golden Cockerel Press books. It was produced at a time when the name "Golden Cockerel" was of considerable interest, not just in the private press world, but in the general popular culture as well. As Cave & Manson says, "The production of the Chaucer was regarded as a literary event, and was well reported in the press." When the book was completed, "there were notices in papers as different as the 'Liverpool Post,' the 'Glasgow Daily Recorder,' and the 'Chicago Evening Post' [as well as] reviews in magazines ranging from the 'Bookman' or the 'Spectator' to the 'Studio' and the 'Connoisseur.' . . . Golden Cockerel was news." Although reviews were not entirely favorable (some critics were put off by what were deemed to be "inappropriate" illustrations), the book was very profitable, grossing some £14,000 for the Press. Apart from the buzz it generated as a cultural event, Gill's "Canterbury Tales," for which the artist is said to have engraved some 160 blocks, is one of the best examples in modern fine press work of the successful collaboration of text, decoration, and typography.. 318 x 197 mm. (12 1/2 x 7 3/4"). Four volumes. No. 343 OF 485 COPIES on paper (and 15 on vellum). Original morocco-backed patterned paper boards by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, raised bands, gilt titling, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. In a cloth slipcase. Red and blue initials, and VERY PLEASING WOOD-ENGRAVED BORDERS (frequently inhabited) BY ERIC GILL on every page except in the last part of volume IV. Verso of front free endpapers with bookplate of William A. Risenfield. Chanticleer 63; Gill 281. Joints somewhat rubbed and a bit darkened (from dye), portions of the upper joint of volume I cracked (no other cracking), corners rather mashed, leather a little marked, but all the volumes solid, the covers unsoiled, and the spines uncharacteristically close in color; very fresh, clean, and bright internally. With the "Four Gospels" of 1931 and "Troilus and Criseyde" of 1927, this is one of the three greatest Golden Cockerel Press books. It was produced at a time when the name "Golden Cockerel" was of considerable interest, not just in the private press world, but in the general popular culture as well. As Cave & Manson says, "The production of the Chaucer was regarded as a literary event, and was well reported in the press."

        Menschen ohne maske (Men without masks)

      OFFERING: An extraordinary signed presentation with a full-page homage to Stefan Lorant from Gunther Sander, documenting this copy was the first printed and bound. Stefan Lorant is widely considered the first major editor of modern photojournalism, credited with publishing countless historical images for the first time. As editor of the Münchner Illustrierte Presse (1929-1933), he was among the first to publish August Sander's photographs. Gunther Sander (August Sander's son) devoted years to organizing and restoring August Sander's print archives after the devastation caused by bombs during World War II. The book is the first since Faces of our Times in 1929 ("Antlizer der  Zeit") illustrated with a sizable and representative selection of reproductions from the 40,000+ prints in August Sander's archives. Gunther Sander selected the illustrations and contributes an excellent biographical essay. August Sander [1876-1964] is remembered as one of the greatest photographers, for his monumental portrait series, People of the 20th Century ("Menschen Des 20 Jahrhunderts"), shot between 1910 and the early 1950s. He was only able to publish small parts during his lifetime. EDITION: No German limited edition was issued and this edition precedes all other editions. The gravure reproductions are of excellent quality. CONDITION: Book: Good / Jacket: Acceptable / Lacks plain card slipcase. / Detail: Pages: bright and clean, most with a gentle top corner bend. / Covers: light fading to top and bottom edges, lower side with lightly bumped corners, spine with slight crown and foot wear. / Binding: Very Good / Jacket: all-around edge wear and rubs with a few small vertical tears and slight loss to three tips, spine with irregular 5 mm loss at the head and irregular 2 mm loss at the foot. PAGINATION: Complete; 313 pages with 240 full-page, b/w gravure reproductions, a tipped-in frontispiece portrait of August Sander, and 24 small photographic reproductions in text. FORMAT: Publisher's gray paper boards and photographic jacket. SIZE: 310 mm. STEFAN LORANT [1901-1997] capitalized on the possibilities opened up by use of the new small cameras with high-speed lenses, exemplified by the Leica and became a leader in the creation of the photo essay. He was among the first to employ celebrated photographers as photojournalists, including August Sander, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstadt, and Andre Kertesz and published the early photographs of Felix Man, Kurt Hutton, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Erich Salomon and Robert Capa. His journalistic credo was, "the photograph should not be posed; the camera should be like the notebook of a trained reporter."[Whiting] ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

Hardcovers. Beautifully illustrated boards. Good bindings and covers. Several volumes have additional ephemera from the Colophon and Pynson Printers when issued. Shelfwear. Clean, unmarked pages. Contains the much sought after Part 5 with the David B. Milne print "Hilltop" or Painting Places. This print is signed by Milne and has a few foxing spots to the margins. This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US. The Colophon, subtitled A Book Collectors' Quarterly or A quarterly for booklovers, was a limited edition quarterly periodical begun late in 1929 and continuing in various guises until 1950. It was the brainchild of Elmer Adler, founder of Pynson Printers of New York City. Each issue would also include an original piece of graphic art, some signed by the artist, many produced by using etching, lithography, or engraving. The articles comment on a current or historical issue related to printing, publishing or art. Other articles were themselves intended to be an example of printing or a work of art. As each article or item was normally a short section produced by a different designer and printer, a typical issue included a range of styles, papers, and typography, often using unusual or experimental approaches not widely seen in longer or mainstream printed items.

        The Red Letter New Testament: Translated out of the Original Greek; and with the former Translations diligently Compared and Revised, by His Majesty's Special Command

      London & New York: Collins' Clear-Type Press, n.d. (1929?). Very good antiquarian condition. 358, [2] p. (last 2 pages blank). Illustrated throughout with color illustrations. Bound in original quarter brown morocco, wooden boards with an overlay of approximately 100 pieces of mother-of-pearl arranged ornamentally: central panel enclosing a five-pointed star on upper cover, on lower the Jerusalem Cross. One piece of mother-of-pearl lost from the upper corner of lower board, another slightly damaged on front cover. An extremely elaborate mother-of-pearl binding on the "Red Letter Testament," possibly bound in Jerusalem. For no apparent reason, the foot of the spine is stamped "Jerusalem," the upper cover bears the Star of David, and the lower cover bears the ornamental design of the Jerusalem Cross. These clues suggest that the volume was bound in Jerusalem, not London or New York. Certainly it is unlikely that a London or New York binder would have utilized wooden boards. A brilliant specimen.

        Spider Kin.

      Chicago: Robert Packard & Company,, 1929. Illustrations by Marian Brand. Octavo. Specially bound green-cloth backed green spider-web patterned boards, titles to spine and front cover gilt. With the illustrated dust jacket. Frontispiece and 3 full page woodcuts, all with spider-web patterned glassine guards. Light rubbing to spine ends and tips, an excellent copy in the jacket with chipping to spine and folds of flap ends, some missing, closed tear to head of rear panel, tape repair to verso. First edition, first impression, presentation copy, inscribed by the author, "For Mr and Mrs Parker – a very meager recognition of all their kindness – Forman Brown" on the front free endpaper. The cloth issue with the illustrated jacket precedes the wrappered version, which was issued with a jacket retrospectively advertising this cloth issue and its "webbed boards". This is the first book of noted gay author Forman Brown, also remembered for writing, under the pseudonym Richard Meeker, the 1933 novel Better Angel, about a young man coming to terms with his homosexuality. It is seen as one of the first American novels to view being gay in a positive light. After graduating from the University of Michigan in 1922 Brown began travelling in Europe and the United States with a group of strolling puppet players serving as puppeteer and playwright, eventually establishing the noted Turnabout Puppet Theatre in Los Angeles, which drew celebrity attention and support from Greta Garbo, Marie Dressler, Douglas Fairbanks, and even Albert Einstein.

        Ulysse. Traduit de l'anglais par M. Auguste Morel assisté par M. Gilbert Stuart. Traduction entièrement revue par M. Valery Larbaud avec la collaboration de L'Auteur

      Paris: La Maison de Amis des Livres, Adrienne Monnier, 1929, 1929. First edition in French, number 509 of 875 numbered copies, out of 1200 copies of this edition. Slocum and Cahoon D17. Spine skillfully repaired; tear in the lower front wrapper, without loss; some light foxing; very good copy, enclosed in a cloth clamshell box.. Large 8vo, original printed wrappers, untrimmed, 870 pages. The first French translation of Joyce's Ulysses, a complicated endeavor as indicated by the hierarchy delineated on the title-page. The poet and critic August Morel was the primary translator; he was assisted by the young (and later very important) Joyce scholar Gilbert Stuart; and their work was then reviewed by French poet and novelist Valary Larbaud (who had been the first choice as translator, but he was too busy) and Joyce himself. Joyce worked hard to balance the strengths of the collaborators and was on record as being pleased with the final result. The office of the publisher, Adrienne Monnier, was across the street from Sylvia Beach's Shakespeare & Company.

      15 x 21,5 cm tadelloser Zustand - mint conditionLifelong authenticity guarantee! Lebenslange Echtheitsgarantie!Grace Patricia Kelly (* 12. November 1929 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania ? 14. September 1982 in Monaco) war eine US-amerikanische Filmschauspielerin und Oscar-Preisträgerin. Infolge der Hochzeit mit Fürst Rainier III. von Monaco im Jahr 1956 änderte sich ihr Name mit dem neuen Titel in Princesse Grace de Monaco beziehungsweise Grace Patricia Grimaldi. Im deutschen Sprachraum ist die Bezeichnung Fürstin Gracia Patricia von Monaco oder verkürzt Gracia Patricia üblich.Von August 1950 bis März 1956 wirkte Grace Kelly in insgesamt elf Spielfilmen mit, nachdem sie bereits Schauspielerfahrungen am Theater gesammelt hatte. Erste Erfolge feierte sie 1952 an der Seite von Gary Cooper im Western Zwölf Uhr mittags und 1953 mit Clark Gable in Mogambo, für den sie ein Jahr später den Golden Globe als beste Nebendarstellerin erhielt. Die Charakterrolle der Georgie Elgin im Filmdrama Ein Mädchen vom Lande brachte ihr 1955 den Oscar als beste Hauptdarstellerin ein. Auf dem Höhepunkt ihrer Karriere hatte sie zudem Hauptrollen in drei Spielfilmen unter der Regie von Alfred Hitchcock, von denen der 1954 gedrehte Thriller Das Fenster zum Hof mit James Stewart zu den bedeutendsten Werken der Filmgeschichte zählt. Darüber hinaus trat sie zwischen 1948 und 1954 in mehr als 40 Fernsehproduktionen auf.1956 beendete Grace Kelly mit dem Musicalfilm Die oberen Zehntausend ihre Arbeit als Filmschauspielerin und heiratete Fürst Rainier III. von Monaco, den sie ein Jahr zuvor anlässlich der Filmfestspiele von Cannes kennengelernt hatte. Aus der Ehe gingen die Kinder Caroline, Albert und Stéphanie hervor. Im Rahmen ihrer Pflichten als Landesmutter widmete sie sich fortan repräsentativen und wohltätigen Aufgaben. Zwei Monate vor ihrem 53. Geburtstag starb sie an den Folgen eines Autounfalles, der sich im Beisein ihrer jüngsten Tochter Stéphanie in der Nähe von Monaco ereignete.Grace Kelly war für ihr stilsicheres Auftreten bekannt und setzte weltweit modische Trends. Ihre Präsenz im Fürstentum verhalf Monaco zu neuem Ansehen und wirtschaftlichem Aufschwung. Das American Film Institute wählte sie auf Platz 13 der 25 größten weiblichen amerikanischen Filmstars aller Zeiten.[1](Quelle: Wikipedia) Lager 1
