        England Made Me

      Garden City: Doubleday Doran, 1935. First American edition. Octavo, original green cloth. Very good in a very good dust jacket that shows some chipping to the spine ends and corners. Signed by Graham Greene on the title page. An early Greene title, fairly uncommon in the dust jacket and signed. Anthony Farrant has always found his way, lying to get jobs and borrowing money to get by when he leaves them in a hurry. His twin sister Kate persuades him to move and sets him up with a job as a bodyguard to Krogh, her lover and boss, an all-powerful Swedish financier. But Farrant does have a sense of decency. When Krogh gives orders that offend him, he leaks information to Minty, a down-trodden journalist, with drastic results. "Greene arouses responses of curiosity and attention comparable to those set up by Malraux, Faulkner and Hemingway" (New Statesman).

        A formal theorem in Church's theory of types. [with:] The use of dots as brackets in Church's system.The Association for Symbolic Logic, 1942.

      First edition, the very rare offprint issues, and with a fine provenance, of Turing's papers on Church's type theory. "Church's type theory is a formal logical language which includes first-order logic, but is more expressive in a practical sense. It is used, with some modifications and enhancements, in most modern applications of type theory. It is particularly well suited to the formalization of mathematics and other disciplines and to specifying and verifying hardware and software" (<i>Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy</i>). <br/><br/> Offprints of Turing's papers are extremely rare in institutional holdings, and even more so in commerce. Copies of both offprints are in the Turing Archive at King's College, Cambridge, and they may have been among those collected by Max Newman (now at Bletchley Park). We are not aware of any other copies having appeared in commerce. <br/><br/> Turing's interest in logic and computation began when he attended the lectures of Max Newman at Cambridge in 1935. This led, two years later, to the publication of his great work <i>On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem</i>, which included the introduction of the 'universal Turing machine.' Turing spent the years1937-1939 at Princeton, where he completed his PhD under the supervision of Alonzo Church. From the latter part of 1939, Turing was engaged in war work at Bletchley Park. 'Before the war my work was in logic and my hobby was cryptanalysis,' he once said, 'and now it is the other way round.' He had to thank Newman for stimulating his thoughts on this 'hobby' of mathematical logic, for they corresponded in 1940 and 1941, in which latter year Newman again gave Cambridge lectures on Foundations of Mathematics. <br/><br/> "Most of Alan's efforts were directed towards a new formulation of the theory of types. Russell had regarded types as rather a nuisance, adopted <i>faute de mieux</i> in order to save Frege's set theory. Other logicians had felt that a hierarchy of logical categories was really quite a natural idea, and that it was the attempt to lump together every conceivable entity into 'sets' that was strange. Alan inclined to the latter view. He would prefer a theory with the way in which mathematicians actually thought, and which worked in a practical way. He also wanted to see mathematical logic used to make the work of mathematicians more rigorous... His own efforts to bridge the gap began with an attempt 'to put the theory of type into a form in which it can be used by the mathematician-in-the-street without having to study mathematical logic, much less use it... The type principle is effectively taken care of in ordinary language by the fact that there are nouns as well as adjectives. We can make the statement 'All horses are four-legged', which can be verified by examination of every horse, at any rate if there are only a finite number of them. If however we try to use words like 'thing' or 'thing whatever' trouble begins. Suppose we understand 'thing' to include everything whatever, books, cats, men, women, thoughts, functions of men with cats as values, numbers, matrices, classes of classes, procedures, propositions... Under these circumstances what can be made of the statement 'All things are not prime multiples of 6'... What do we mean by it? Under no circumstances is the number of things to be examined finite. It may be that some meaning can be given to statements of this kind, but for the present we do not know of any. In effect then the theory of types requires us to refrain from the use of such nouns as 'thing', 'object', etc., which are intended to convey the idea of 'anything whatever'. <br/><br/> "The technical work of separating mathematical 'nouns' from 'adjectives' was based upon that of Church, whose lectures he had followed at Princeton, and who published a description of his type theory in 1940. Part of Alan's work was done in collaboration with Newman through correspondence; their joint paper [i.e. I] being received at Princeton on 9 May 1941. It must have crossed the Atlantic just as the <i>München</i> was captured. Alan produced a further paper of a highly technical nature, <i>The use of dots as brackets in Church's system</i>, and submitted it just a year later" (Hodges, pp. 215-6). [Paper II] "shows once again Turing's ability to reason about important issues in computer science before there were digital computers to reason about. In this case, Turing essentially studies an important aspect of programming languages, a syntax for trees... In short, Turing's dots gave him a way to think about the order of operations in a structure that was more intuitive to him, to prepare him for planned further work on Church's &lambda;-calculus" (Lance Fortnow, in <i>Alan Turing: his work and impact</i>, pp. 227-8). Turing states that he intended to make use of this notation in two forthcoming papers, <i>Some theorems about Church's systems</i> and <i>The theory of virtual types</i>. These never appeared, although manuscripts with similar titles exist in the Turing Archive (AMT/C/3-6). <br/><br/> Although there are no ownership marks, these offprints are from the working library of Robin Gandy. "[Gandy's] interest in [mathematical logic] commenced through his wartime acquaintance with Alan Turing as far back as 1944. His twin interests in the foundations of science and mathematics were fostered by Turing. These interests moulded a career which always seemed larger than his publication list, although that grew in diversity with the years to include some seminal papers. Initially, he read widely and published little, but around 1960 he started to produce the major results which made him an international figure in the theory of abstract recursion and in effective, descriptive set theory. There were also major conceptual innovations such as the theory of inductive definitions, and a plethora of ingenious intricate proofs in different corners of the subject. He wrote papers on many areas of logic and was much in demand as a reviewer of books on the foundations of mathematics and science. He remained active and productive and was a familiar figure at international conferences until his sad and unexpected death (from an aortic rupture) on November 20th, 1995. "He was born on September 22nd, 1919, in Peppard, Oxfordshire, where his father, Thomas Gandy, was in general practice. His mother Ida Gandy earned a reputation for a sequence of books based on her early life in Wiltshire. Educated at Abbotsholme, a progressive public school, he went on to join that special elite at King's College, Cambridge, intellectual home of such famous names as E. M. Forster the novelist, J. Maynard Keynes the economist - and Alan Turing. He met Turing at a party in 1940 (Gandy's graduation year) but their early wartime careers were separate. Gandy was commissioned in the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers and became an expert on military radio and radar, whilst Turing joined the cryptanalysts at Bletchley Park. They were brought together at Hanslope Park in 1944 to work on a speech decipherment system, christened 'Delilah' at Gandy's suggestion because it was intended to be a 'deceiver of men'. "Their friendship continued after the war, back at King's College where Turing had resumed his fellowship. Gandy took Part III of the Mathematical Tripos with distinction, then began studying for a PhD under Turing's supervision; his successful thesis on the logical foundation of physics (<i>On axiomatic systems in mathematics and theories in physics</i>) was presented in 1953 and can now be seen as a bridge between his wartime expertise and later career. When Turing died in 1954 he left his mathematical books and papers to Gandy, who, in 1963, took over from Max Newman the task of editing the papers for publication" (Moschovakis & Yates, pp. 367-8). <br/><br/> Andrew Hodges, <i>Alan Turing: The Enigma</i>, 1983; Yiannis Moschovakis & Mike Yates, 'In Memoriam: Robin Oliver Gandy 1919-1995', <i>Bulletin of Symbolic Logic</i>, Vol. 2, 1996, pp. 367-370.. Two offprints on Church's type theory. I. (with M. H. A. Newman) 'A formal theorem in Church's theory of types,' pp. 28-33, Journal of Symbolic Logic, Vol. 7, No. 1, March, 1942; II. 'The use of dots as brackets in Church's system,' pp. 146-156, Journal of Symbolic Logic, Vol. 7, No. 4, December, 1942. 8vo (255 x 175 mm), original printed wrappers.

        The Underworld of the East

      London: Sampson Low, Marston & Co.,, 1935. Being Eighteen Years Actual Experiences of the Underworlds, Drug Haunts and Jungles of India, China, and the Malay Archipelago. Octavo. Original red cloth, lettered in black. In the strikingly simple typographical dust jacket. 18 plates. First edition of this uncommon memoir of a young Yorkshire mining engineer&#39;s psychonautic experiences in the East, just a handful of copies on OCLC. "To the suspicious reader, James Lee&#39;s Underworld of the East &#133; might at first sight appear to be an elaborate hoax. Far more than nay other example of the turn-of-the-century travel genre, it presents our jaded modern palates with the sort of Orient of the Mind which we imagine far more often than we get: a twilight world of ports, red-light districts, drug dens, and secret chambers of vice from Aden to Kyoto, as strange as opium dreams yet as real as bamboo and stale tobacco, and our guide is not some prurient flaneur protesting his shock and disbelief at every step but a mining foreman from Yorkshire who, during the course of the book, is largely preoccupied with smoking, swallowing and injecting as many drugs as possible &#133; Even more suspiciously, he defuses the near-universal problem which the sympathetic and unprejudiced reader has with colonial memoirs by being resolutely sympathetic and unprejudiced towards the local people - even marrying an Indian girl who he subsequently treats with nothing but love and respect &#133; But perhaps most suspicious of all is the way in which Lee presents us with an account which significantly rewrites the social history of drugs in the period leading up to their prohibition &#133;But a second glance confirms that Underworld of the East even if it seems too good to be true, is none the less exactly what it claims to be" (Mike Jay in the introduction to the 2000 Green Magic reprint). Highly desirable thus, in the oddly spare typographical jacket, predominantly white, the final word of the title - "East" - in stencil block capital shadow-lettering overlaid on a black and white image of a teeming Indian street scene.

First Printing (February, 1935, on copyright page), in First Issue dust jacket (with correct titles listed on rear panel). 8vo: 315,[1]pp. Publisher&#39;s cobalt-blue cloth, spine and upper cover stamped in gilt within a horizontal black band, top edge stained black; pictorial dust jacket, priced $2.50. About Fine (flaking to gilt spine lettering), in a bright, about Fine jacket (spine head rubbed with miniscule loss). Provenance: from the collection (now housed at the University of Central Florida Libraries) of bibliophiles Walter and Dorothy Donnelly with their label on front paste down. Petersen A17.1a. In the 1930s, Faulkner sought release from increasing personal and professional problems through flying lessons; he bought a plane, and his brothers learned to fly, too. Eventually Faulkner gave the plane to his brother Dean&#151;and was overcome by guilt when Dean died in a crash in the same year Pylon, which concerns the exploits of a wandering troupe of gypsy aviators, was published. According to The Literary Encyclopedia, Pylon "has many failings, but did offer Faulkner a chance to try out some of the techniques he perfected in Absalom, Absalom! (1936), which is widely considered his greatest achievement." Basis for the 1958 film The Tarnished Angels, featuring Robert Stack, Rock Hudson and Dorothy Malone, about an airplane contest in New Orleans during Mardis Gras.

        South: The Harvest

      London: The Baynard Press, 1935. Mounted onto cotton First Printing Fine A fine original poster designed by John Mansbridge (British: 1901-1981) for the London Transit and printed by the Baynard Press in 1935. Fine condition. Mounted onto cotton. 25 x 40 inches. & Subtly inspired by Cubism and honoring the rural tradition set forth by Thomas Hart Benton, Mansbridge&#39;s compositions explode with a forceful confidence. His vibrant scenes of toil are charged with motion and the strenuous integrity of the laborers: both man and beast, as they sheer sheep, plow fields and reap the harvest of the verdant and amber lands of rural Britain. With an emphasis on strong design, the graphic intent of the London Transit posters was to reach a diverse audience, encourage travel and all the while enliven and brighten the oft-dreary locale of the London Underground, the "Tube". A fine, scarce example all around. &

        Jayhawker A Play in Three Acts [Signed by Sinclair Lewis] WAS $3,250

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good. PRESENTLY DISCOUNTED. WAS $3,250. A Very Good + copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends pushed with some tiny fraying, slight amount of fading to the board edges and spine head as is usual for this title), in a Very Good dust jacket (chip to the spine head with an associated tear, small chips to the spine tail and ends of the flap folds, age toning to the edges of the flaps and rear panel, corner-clipped by the Publisher but not price-clipped and showing the price at $2.00 -- all unsurprising for this jacket which often is found worn), SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS on the title page; Sinclair Lewis&#39; debut (and only) published Play, a joint effort by Sinclair Lewis and by Lloyd Lewis, the then drama critic for the Chicago Daily News and a Civil War history specialist. Sinclair Lewis won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Literature for "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humour, new types of characters", making him the first author from the United States to win the Prize. Declared by Sinclair Lewis Bibliographer Stephen Pastore to be "...perhaps the scarcest title in the post-1930 Lewis lexicon", the first edition of Jayhawker consisted of a mere 1,076 copies. The Play is set during the Kansas Missouri border wars which took place off and on from about 1855 to 1864. During this period, militant bands of nominal free-staters who opposed Slavery but who were willing to pillage, rob, and kill for other reasons as well, adopted the term to describe themselves. With relatively few copies of the first edition having been produced and with many of them no doubt having been claimed by time, first edition copies are rather scarce to the market. Although signed copies of Sinclair Lewis works generally are not terribly scarce, signed copies of "Jayhawker" are rare. In addition to having been signed, this copy bears a notable Provenance, having come from the Estate of decorated Naval Officer and Actor Douglas Fairbanks whose bookplate resides on the book&#39;s front pastedown. A Very Good+ copy of what itself is a rather uncommon book, and one hardly ever found signed, SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS. RARE.

        HONEY IN THE HORN

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1935. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good. First Printing. An easily Near Fine example of this elusive 1936 Pulitzer Prize winner. Book has a few small rust colored stains to the cloth and a small bookseller&#39;s label on rear paste down, otherwise clean, tight and square. Price clipped dust jacket, rated Very Good, has suffered from early, inexpert restoration attempts, being reinforced with tape and stamps to prevent loss from head and tail of spine and cracking along creases. While unfortunate, the reinforcement was early and prevented much of the dust jacket loss so common with this title. This copy shows very well and the gold foil dust jacket gives it fantastic shelf appeal. Additional photos available upon request. Near Fine in Very Good. dust jacket.
