        On Computable Numbers

      1936. First Edition . TURING, Alan Mathison. ""On Computable Numbers, with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem."" IN: Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society, Second Series, Volume 42 and Volume 43, Parts 3, 4 and 7, pp. 230-240; 241-265; 544-546. London: for the Society, November 30 and December 23, 1936 (parts 1 and 2 of Turing's paper) and April 22, 1937 (correction). Two volumes. Octavo, modern green cloth; portions of wrappers bound in. $28,500.First appearance of the concept of the universal computing machine, which would come to be known as a Turing machine: “it is possible to invent a single machine which can be used to compute any computable sequence.” Complete with the scarce “correction” or third part of this important paper, issued a year after the first two parts and often not present.""Computing is normally done by writing certain symbols on paperÂ… [But] I think that it will be agreed that the two-dimensional character of paper is not essential of computation"" (page 249). David Hilbert, one of the greatest mathematicians of his age and one of Turing's academic forerunners, posed a series of problems, the last of which was his ""Entscheidungsproblem,"" the core of which dealt with whether there was a definite method or ""mechanical process"" that could be applied to any mathematical assertion and which would always produce a correct answer as to whether the assertion was true or false. In the pre-computer age, this was a matter for philosophy and theoretical mathematics. Yet, Turing had an inkling that the future promised something greater and more exact. More than any other individual, Turing created the theoretical foundation for digital computers developed in the 1940s. ""While at Princeton [as a graduate student] Turing published one of his most important contributions to mathematical logic, his 1936-37 paper 'On Computable NumbersÂ…' which immediately attracted general attention. In it he analyzed the processes that can be carried out in computing a number to arrive at a concept of a theoretical 'universal' computing machine (the 'Turing machine'), capable of operating upon any 'computable' sequence—that is, any sequence of zeros and ones"" (DSB). The definition, in fact, of ""computable"" is that the problem can be solved by a Turing machine; this concept of a Turing machine, which could theoretically perform any mathematical calculation, was important in the development of the digital computer. ""In showing that a universal machine was possible, Turing's paper was highly influential in the theory of computation, and it remained a powerful expression of the virtually unlimited adaptability of electronic digital computers"" (Hook & Norman, Origins of Cyberspace, 394—their copy without the third part). The third part of Turing's paper, rare and present here, is a correction, issued in April of 1937 in response to errors found by Paul Bernays, a Swiss mathematician. Each of the three parts of this important paper appears in the complete journal in which it was originally issued. Last leaf of correction (Volume 3, page 545-46) misbound so sequence of correction is 544, 546, 545. Tape reinforcement to verso of Volume 42 title page, slight soiling and a few creases to interior but generally quite nice, cloth fine. A scarce item in nearly fine condition.

        Shadow Over Innsmouth. Illustrated by Frank A. Utpatel.

      Pennsylvania: Visionary Publishing Co., 1936 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to front cover and spine in silver, with the errata slip laid in. With the dust jacket by Utpatel.

        General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money

      1936. First Edition . KEYNES, John Maynard. The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money. London: Macmillan, 1936. Octavo, original blue-green cloth, original dust jacket. $14,000.First edition of Keynes’ last major work, considered the most influential economic treatise of the 20th century, rarely found in the original dust jacket.Keynes' General Theory ranks with Smith's Wealth of Nations as an intellectual event and with Malthus' Essay on Population as a guide for public policy. ""The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. First in A Treatise on Money, 1930, and later in his General Theory, he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economics to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate"" (PMM 423). Owner signature along upper edge of dust jacket front panel.Light foxing to edges and first few leaves, cloth near-fine. Attractive dust jacket with small chip to foot of gently toned dust jacket spine, affecting publisher's name, shallow wear to corners. A very desirable copy in the scarce original dust jacket.

        Old Spain

      1936. First Edition . Signed. BONE, Muirhead. Old Spain. Two volumes. WITH: Two Drypoints. London: Macmillan, 1936. Together, three volumes. Elephant folio (14-1/2 by 21 inches), original full brown pigskin gilt, raised bands, top edges gilt, uncut; etchings in original matching portfolio with brown paper boards. $8500.Signed limited first edition of this monumental collection of Spanish landscapes, cityscapes and interiors, number 24 of only 265 sets, with 120 large full-page illustrations in various media (three double-page, many in color) by Muirhead Bone and descriptions by Gertrude Bone, signed by both, with the additional portfolio of two original drypoint etchings, each signed by Muirhead Bone. With a presentation inscription from artist W. Russell Flint and two related signed autograph letters, one from Muirhead to Flint and one from Mary Bone to John Moore, the recipient of this copy.Because Muirhead Bone was originally trained as an architect, it stands to reason that his favorite subjects were city architecture (which often focussed on urban demolition and renewal), industrial plants and landscapes. His art ""reflects the mind of the architect, an almost mathematical feeling for strains and stresses"" (DNB). Bone's preferred media were etching, dry-point and lithography. ""In the art of dry-point, Bone did not, from his first attempts, take long to achieve a mastery which it was well-nigh impossible to improve upon, certainly not as a technical process"" (Kenneth M. Guichard). Appointed official British war artist during the First World War, he produced 150 lithographs of the conflict, published by the War Department as The Western Front (1917). After the armistace he returned to his earlier subject matter, adding a new fascination with shipyards and the war-damaged towns of France. For many years, Bone and his wife Gertrude took up residence in Italy and Spain. This monumental collection of his drawings and prints of Spain were ""gathered during leisurely visits extending over the last years of the old régime."" Bone's work is known for its meticulous detail, without ever becoming labored. With the separate portfolio of two original drypoint etchings signed by Bone: ""The Apse, Leon Cathedral"" and ""Roman Bull Excavated at Merida,"" often missing. Inscribed in volume I by fellow Scottish artist W. Russell Flint, ""For my dear friend John Moore with every good and affectionate wish from his companion on many happy occasions. W. Russell Flint. —- March 31, 1967."" Flint, a celebrated artist and illustrator, shared with Bone a love of Spain, to which he also returned for inspiration throughout his life. Laid into this copy are two autograph letters signed. The first, from Muirhead Bone to Russell Flint, reads: ""The Radcliffe Infirmary (Private Block) Oxford. Oct 2, 1953. My dear Russell Flint, There must be few letters giving one such a pleasure to answer as yours! I have been here nearly 10 weeks now and the days have often been a bit dreary. Your letter made me very bright indeed. Of course I know better but as an invalid I just ignore that and sip my sugared tea. They have now finished a block of radio-therapy treatments on me and in a fortnight am being allowed to go home—for a while anyhow. My general health may then improve they think. Speriamo! Afraid it may be some time before I remember how to sharpen a pencil though. Again my warmest thanks for your kindness and warmest best wishes to your own work. Yours ever, Muirhead Bone."" Sadly, Bone's health did not improve, and he died three weeks later on October 21, 1953. A second, undated letter is from Mary Bone to the recipient of this copy. It reads ""140 Haverstock Hill NW3 May 8th. Dear Mr. Moore. I am sorry not to reply to your letter before; I received it in Rome, from where I have recently returned. Your theory about squaring out the first page of a sketchbook is, I fear, with no foundation, I never saw Muirhead do that. His method, when drawing in cramped quarters, or on the spur of the moment, was to use a small sketchbook and two strong elastic bands top and bottom so that the page could be torn out, pushed up, and the drawing continued. Or the same process done horizontally [two labeled sketches]. I am glad you enjoyed the exhibition, I hope we will be able to have some more of his work on show soon. I will keep your address and let you know if I turn up anything you might like to see. Yours sincerely Mary Bone."" A few spots to portfolio boards only, plates and text beautiful and bright. Fine condition.

        Liste des Grands Vins Fins (14 Annual Catalogues)

      1936. First Edition . MAISON NICOLAS. Liste des Grands Vins Fins. [Paris]: (Draeger Frères), 1936-1971. WITH: DERAIN, André. Le Génie du Vin. (Paris: Draeger Frères, 1972). Altogether, fifteen volumes. Quarto (varying sizes), original flexible paper covers (some spiral-bound, some in original glassines). Housed in a pair of matching green clamshell boxes. $4000.First editions of these wonderfully illustrated annual wine lists from Maison Nicolas, with cover designs and illustrations by such leading French painters as Latour and Buffet, together with Derain’s illustrated publication commemorating the sesquicentennial of Maison Nicolas— one of only 300 copies.“From 1928 to 1973, Nicolas has recognized the synergy between wine and art by commissioning such great painters as Derain, Van Dongen and Buffet to illustrate its catalogues of fine vintages.” “Now we start getting closer to the basis of Nicolas’ success. Prime vineyard sites, only old vines— 35 years minimum but typically much older— and growers who work in an organic or even biodynamic way… Of course, there is no fining and (unless absolutely necessary) no filtration and even the bottling is done at the wane of the moon” (Burgundy Report). This collection of 14 Maison Nicolas wine catalogues between the years 1936 and 1971, with their commissioned artistic covers and text illustrations, not only records the vinyard’s annual offerings, but represents a contemporary French popular taste in art— Latour, Galanis, Saint-André, Gischia, Limouse, Caillard, Humblot, Buffet, Midy, Guiramand, Lorjou, Derain, and Favier.

All this while he was an avid collector of autographs, mainly through highly persistent correspondence. He wrote as many as thirty letters to King Alfonso of Spain before receiving his autographed photograph - Kaiser Wilhem was a relative pushover at 17. Greenway was interviewed in the 14 May 1941 issue of Life Magazine about his autograph collection, and even wrote a book on the subject, Big Game Hunting With a Fountain Pen. His collection was sold by auction in 1970.

        The Philosophy of Physics.

      London: George Allen & Unwin Ltd,, 1936. Translated by W. H. Johnston. Small octavo. Original red cloth, spine and front board lettered in black. With the dust jacket. Contemporary gift inscription by J. W. A. Hickson to front free endpaper dated September 1936, ownership stamp to rear pastedown. Spine rolled, pastedowns a little cockled, a few light pencil annotations throughout, wear and tanning to dust jacket spine and joints, some small nicks to jacket extremities, an excellent copy in a very good dust jacket. First edition in English, first impression, the US edition published the same year. This volume of essays on causality was written by the German theoretical physicist who originated quantum theory and for which Planck was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1918. At the time of publication he was president of the Kaiser Wilhem Society (now the Max Planck Society) and the permanent secretary of the mathematics and physics section of the Prussian Academy of Sciences. In 1935, just one year before he inscribed this copy to "C.M.H.", Canadian psychologist and mountaineer Hickson published a paper called "Causality and Recent Physics" in the Philosophical Review. He was a member of the faculty at McGill University from 1901 to 1924 and would continue to defend causality throughout his writings ("Recent Attacks on Causal Knowledge", Philosophical Review [1938]) until his death in 1956.

Flight was a member of the 'Seven and Five Society' in 1923 whose members included Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth. He was a member of the Grubb Group in 1928. He collaborated with Edith Lawrence with whom he had an interior design business, taught at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art from 1926 and wrote and organised exhibitions on linocuts. His pupils included various now-famous print artists such as Lill Tschudi, Cyril Power, Eileen Mayo and Sybil Andrews. Influenced by Cubism, Futurism and Vorticism, his work expressed dynamic rhythm through bold, simple forms. His linocut prints show his interest in depicting speed and movement. A wonderful publication and very scarce with the original wrapper.

        The Kidnap Murder Case: A Philo Vance Story

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1936 316+[6 ad] pages. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") issued in black cloth with silver lettering to spine and cover. Has the "A" on the title verso. 1st edition. Wright wrote as a critic and journalist until 1923, when he became ill from what was given out as overwork, but was in reality a secret drug addiction, according to John Loughery's biography Alias S.S. Van Dine. His doctor confined him to bed (supposedly because of a heart ailment, but actually because of a cocaine addiction) for more than two years. In frustration and boredom, he began collecting and studying thousands of volumes of crime and detection. In 1926 this paid off with the publication of his first S. S. Van Dine novel, The Benson Murder Case. Wright took his pseudonym from the abbreviation of "steamship" and from Van Dine, which he claimed was an old family name. Wright wrote a series of short stories for Warner Brothers film studio in the early 1930s. These stories were used as the basis for a series of 12 short films, each around 20 minutes long, that were released in 1930 - 1931. Of these, The Skull Murder Mystery (1931) shows Wright's vigorous plot construction. It is also notable for its non-racist treatment of Chinese characters, something quite unusual in its day. As far as it is known, none of Van Dine's screen treatments have been published in book form and none of the manuscripts survive. Short films were popular then and Hollywood made hundreds of them during the studio era. Except for a handful of comedy silents, however, most of these films are forgotten and not listed in film reference books. Wright died April 11, 1939, in New York City, a year after the publication of an unpopular experimental novel that incorporated one of the biggest stars in radio comedy, The Gracie Allen Murder Case, and leaving a complete novelette-length story that was intended as a film vehicle for Sonja Henie, and was published posthumously as The Winter Murder Case. Condition: Unobtrusive book seller's stamp on front gutter of end paper, front past down lightly soiled. Jacket professionally repaired with minor edge wear. A very good copy in like jacket. . First Edition. Original Cloth. Very Good/Very Good. Small Octavo.

        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money

      London: Macmillan and Co, 1936. First edition. 403pp. 8vo. Original blue-green publisher's cloth, spine gilt The printed jacket is unclipped and in very good condition with the usual sunning to the spine. First edition. 403pp. 8vo. From the moment of publication to the current day, it's difficult to overstate the impact Keynes and his General Theory has had on the field of macroeconomics. "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade cycle… [h]e subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM). Controversial and divisive, it was received with enthusiasm by some and dismissed as a recipe for inflation by others. Put briefly, his analysis demonstrated that "[e]conomic policy should [ultimately] provide for the management of demand as a means of controlling the level of output and seek to ensure the fullest possible use of available resources" (ODNB). Keynes's General Theory provides an invaluable critique and thus is a sort of companion volume of the likes of Adam Smith. Indeed, this and The Wealth of Nations should be considered the two pillars of any serious collection of books on economics. PMM 423
