        The Paradise of Fools

      London: Hodder and Stoughton,, 1936. Being an Account by a Member of the Party, of the Expedition which covered 6,300 miles of the Libyan Desert by Motor-car in 1935. Octavo. Original blue cloth, title gilt to the spine, scorpion device gilt to the upper board. With the striking pictorial dust jacket. Frontispiece and 22 other plates, folding coloured map at the rear. A little chafed head and tail of the spine, corners a touch bumped, free endpapers differentially browned, minor production flaw at the head of the rear hinge, else very good in slightly rubbed jacket, foxed on the flaps, with some slightly amateurish restoration at the head of the spine, but pictorially and textually complete. First edition. Lively, and uncommon account of an expedition described in Fliegel Jezerniczky's on-line Libyan Desert bibliography as "an extraordinary journey", in which a party led by Mason and W.B. Kennedy Shaw traversed "virtually all major parts of the Libyan desert. They started from Kharga, reaching the Gilf Kebir via Abu Ballas, making the first crossing of the dune belt in the 'Gap' to enter Wadi Hamra, discovering two major wadis transversing the southern Gilf (and locating a cave with rock paintings on the col between them), then continuing via Selima and Erdi to El Fasher (where they met Almásy and party). On the northbound leg they traversed the southern Libyan Desert, continuing to Uweinat, passing the western side of the Gilf, then traversing the Great Sand Sea to reach Siwa". The cave at Mogharet el Kantara containing the paintings of cattle and a homestead scene, the only known site containing rock art in the Southern eastern portion of the Gilf Kebir, is now known as Shaw's Cave. During the Second World War Shaw went on to become a founder member of the Long Range Desert Group, whose scorpion badge was very similar to that used here on the upper board; Mason, who had previously spent time fur-trapping in Canada, and sparring with Jack Sharkey, was recruited to Naval Intelligence by Ian Fleming, lending a number of characteristics - physical and temperamental - and terrific tales to the composite who became James Bond. Shaw published his findings in the Geographical Journal ("An Expedition in the Southern Lybian Desert", volume 87, 1936) and Antiquity ("Rock Paintings in the Lybian Desert", volume 10, 1936). Bookplate of Charles Edward Rusbridge, who served in Libya with the RAOC during World War II, to the front pastedown.

        VIEWS OF MY HOME AND GARDEN/WINTER-SPRING-SUMMER-FALL/ Christmas Greetings And Best Wishes For The New Year

      Shidzuoka, Japan: Walter H. Siegfried: , 1936. Shidzuoka, Japan: Walter H. Siegfried 1936. A very lovely and large photo album of a garden and domestic pleasures at an Westerner's residence at Sidzuoka, Japan, before the war, printed as a Christmas and New Year's greeting to friends. The gardens, obviously a work of great love for Siegfried and his companion, J.S., who appears in two of the photographs, are an unusual mix of Japanese and American stylistic elements. In the colour reproductions of these hand-colored photographs measuring 20.6 x 29 cm, we see the garden in all seasons against a backdrop of traditional Japanese architecture. In winter, which featured "the heaviest snow in history," traditional Japanese garden ornament and structure mixes with a variety of snow laden trees and shrubs, many clearly characteristic of Japanese gardens. Come spring, cherry blossoms, staging of plants (azaleas and roses) under bamboo shading and a large display of white and purple wisteria across the home's facade and across a pergoloa let us know where we are, but a very Western looking cutting garden of roses, daisies and orchids also appears. In June, an equally Western looking border planting of iris and amaryllis shows up. There are pond and waterfall scenes in June and a view of lily of the valley, orchids, roses and azaleas in the hot house. The hot house,itself, is most interesting with alternating shelves of tropical fish and tiger lily pots. Siegfried's obviously well -loved dogs start appearing among gardenia and hydrangea plantings and there is a shot of W.H.S. and J.S. seated on a Japanese style bridge over a pond with their dogs. In the aviary are golden pheasant, doves, parrakeets and love birds, as well as mandarin ducks in the duck house. Toward the end of the album, the dogs, especially the miniature schnauzers fill several pages, most notably in a show win shot ( Westminster Kennel and Morris and Essex Kennel back in the U.S). Final shots include views of a water lily pond, a monkey slipper tree and maples in color, along with a view of the large water fountain in front of the residence bordered by full masted Japanese and American flags flying on Labor Day. Despite continuing search efforts, Walter H. Siegfried remains elusive. The dual national flags may or may not suggest a diplomatic function.Oblong album bound Japanese style, 26 x 36.5 cm., title page printed in green, red, and gold + 44 full page plates of hand colored photographs printed on rectos only. Original maroon silk cloth, just rubbed at corners, cream silk ties; very well preserved.

A brief text on the culture of Japanese tree peonies accompanies the plates, and there is an overslip with letterpress describing each flower. Niigata was a center for peonie cultivation and this book was undoubtedly issued to promote export trade to the west.Oblong 4to, stabbed and tied (25.2 x 38 cm); (ii) + (ii) + 2 + (ii) pp. + 27 color plates with accompanying letterpress on overslips.

        Margaret Mitchell writes to a New England bookseller, explaining the origin of her novel, Gone With the Wind, and commenting on its reception outside of the South: "Especially I was interested in your reactions as a New Englander. I did not wish to write a bitter or biased book. I hope it did not sound that way for I hate 'professional Southerners' almost as much as Northerners do. I tried to let the facts stand on their own feet."

      Atlanta, Georgia, June 5, 1936. 7" x 7.75". "Typed Letter Signed, ""Margaret Mitchell,"" 1 page, 7"" x 7.75"", Atlanta, Georgia, June 5, 1936, to Robert Saltmarsh, a New Bedford, Massachusetts bookseller who had sent her warm praise after reading an advance copy of Gone With the Wind. Usual folds, light toning, else very good to fine condition. Mitchell's letter reads in full: ""Your kind letter gave me so much pleasure that I had to write to you just as soon as I finished reading it. I appreciated, more than I can ever tell you, all your nice remarks. Especially I was interested in your reactions as a New Englander. I did not wish to write a bitter or biased book. I hope it did not sound that way for I hate 'professional Southerners' almost as much as Northerners do. I tried to let the facts stand on their own feet without either reviling or sentimentalizing and I thank you for saying you thought it a fair picture."" ""I must upbraid you for your statement about 'never annoying authors with such letters.' I do not know about how other authors feel and, as this is my first book, I really do not know how a dyed-in-the-wool author should feel. I know I was so pleased and excited to know that some one liked the book that I fairly capered! You see, it comes as a surprise to me that anyone should like it. I wrote it about ten years ago and I did not think very much of it. I thought so little of it that I never submitted it to my publisher. In fact it was so well hidden that when the Macmillan Company man was here and wanted to see it, the house had to be torn up to find it. And I let him have it with fear and trembling and nearly had a stroke when he bought it. So you can understand my pleasure at a kind word!""""I remember your town of New Bedford with so much pleasure. I went to Smith College and while there always promised myself a trip to New Bedford and Nantucket. While Northerners may picture the South as a romantic and exciting place, I had always pictured those two places as romantic and exciting. I had read so much about them. My college career was cut short by my family's need of me at home and my departure from the North was hasty but I could not pass up the trip to New Bedford and Nantucket. So I made the wildest, fastest trip through New England ever recorded and actually did see those towns. And I wasn[']t a bit disappointed. I loved New Bedford even if there weren't any whales tied up at the docks as I had fondly hoped. I have always been sorry I could not have had a longer stay there. But, at least, I saw the town and I wasn't disappointed."" A superb letter that not only provides a slice of her autobiography from her early years at Smith College, but also hints at the 'shell-shock' she incurred from her meteoric rise to success and fame, expressing her surprise that anyone would have been interested in this novel?"the manuscript of which she had abandoned in 1929 after three years of writing. She also notes an important characteristic of her novel that likely makes it more appealing to Northerners: she chose not to recall the war in a sentential manner, rather choosing to ""let the facts stand on their own two feet ..."""

        A Papermaking Pilgrimage to Japan, Korea and China.

      - New York: Pynson Printers, 1936. Quarto, 148, (4)pp., plus 51 paper specimens. With frontispiece, three woodcut and 65 photogravure illustrations. Quarter leather with paper over boards printed in gilt from 18th century wood blocks acquired by Hunter in Korea, backstrip tooled in red and lettered in gilt, insignificant wear to backstrip and bottom corners, near fine with prospectus and receipt of order laid in. One of 370 numbered copies signed by Dard Hunter and Elmer Adler of Pynson Printers. A landmark book on hand papermaking in Asia, richly illustrated with paper specimens collected by Hunter on his travels and with photographs showing the papermills, tools, moulds, and materials he saw and the artisans he met. HunterÕs work is of pivotal importance in the history of American book making. Immersed in the Arts and Crafts movement at Elbert HubbardÕs Roycroft company, Hunter went on to found the first handmade paper mill in America and to create arguably the worldÕs first Òone manÓ books: books he printed on paper he had made with a typeface he had designed, cut, and cast himself. In Chillicothe, Ohio, he founded Mountain House Press and for the next 46 years dedicated himself to the study of papermaking, travelling around the world for his research and authoring 20 books on the subject. This is the first of HunterÕs limited edition books to be entrusted to any press other than his own. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        [Collection of important papers in mathematical logic]: 1. Alonzo Church: A note on the Entscheidungsproblem. + 2. Alonzo Church: Review of "On computable numbers, ...". + 3. Alan Turing: Computability and lambda-definability. 4. Emil Post: Finite combinatory processes-formulation I.

      The Association for Symbolic Logic, 1936-1938. Royal8vo. In: Journal of Symbolic Logic, Volume 1-3. The three entire volumes bound in one offered here. Contemporary full cloth with silver gilt spine lettering. Provenance: Exlibris from the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, New York. A fine and completely clean copy.. All first editions. First paper: Church's paper, submitted on April 15, 1936, was the first to contain a demonstration that David Hilbert's 'Entscheidungsproblem' - i.e., the question as to whether there exists in mathematics a definite method of guaranteeing the truth or falsity of any mathematical statement - was unsolvable. Church did so by devising the 'lambda-calculus'. Church had earlier shown the existence of an unsolvable problem of elementary number theory, but his 1936 paper was the first to put his findings into the exact form of an answer to Hilbert's 'Entscheidungsproblem'. Church's paper bears on the question of what is computable, a problem addressed more directly by Alan Turing in his paper 'On computable numbers' published a few months later. The notion of an 'effective' or 'mechanical' computation in logic and mathematics became known as the Church-Turing thesis. (Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, 250).Second paper: Church coined the phrase 'Turing machine' in this review of Turing's paper 'On computable numbers'. With regard to Turing's proof of the insolvability of Hilbert's 'Entscheidungsproblem', Church acknowledged that "computability by a Turing machine ... has the advantage of making the identification with effectiveness in the ordinary (not explicitly defined) sense evident immediately - i.e. without the necessity of proving preliminary theorems". (Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, 251).Third paper: In this paper Turing first completed the cycle of proving that his 'computable functions', Church's 'lambda-definable functions', the and the 'general recursive functions', developed by Herbrand, Gödel and Kleene, are all identical. (Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, 395).Fourth paper: The Polish-American mathematician Emil Post made notable contributions to the theory of recursive functions. In the 1930s, independently of Turing, Post came up with the concept of a logic automaton similar to a Turing machine, which he described in the present paper (received on October 7, 1936). Post's paper was intended to fill a conceptual gap in Alonzo Church's paper on 'An unsolvable problem of elementary number theory'. Church had answered in the negative Hilbert's 'Entscheidungsproblem' but failed to provide the assertion that any such definitive method could be expressed as a formula in Church's lambda-calculus. Post proposed that a definite method would be one written in the form of instructions to mind-less worker operating on an infinite line of 'boxes' (equivalent to the Turing machines 'tape'). The range of instructions proposed by Post corresponds exactly to those performed by a Turing machine, and Church, who edited the Journal of Symbolic Logic, felt it necessary to insert an editorial note referring to Turing's "shortly forthcoming" paper on computable numbers, and asserting that "the present article ... although bearing a later date, was written entirely independently of Turing's".
