        [Film Poster or Lobby Card]: Marihuana: Weed with Roots in Hell!

      [No place: no publisher. 1936]. Original poster. Approximately 14" x 22.5". Printed in black, red, and yellow. Modest age-toning in the white portions, else just about fine. Crudely designed poster or lobby card for the 1936 exploitation film Marihuana advertising itself as a "Daring Drug Expose" and promising "Weird Orgies, Wild Parties, Unleashed Passions" and illustrated with a comely lass being shot up by a marihuana pusher. An iconic image, reproduced many times for everything from giclee prints to coffee mugs, this is an original and authentic 1936 poster. .

        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".

        EHON DON KIHOUTE

      1936. Fine. SERIZAWA Keisuke. EHON DON KIHOUTE. Mukomachi: Sunward Press, Showa 11 [1936] #19 of 25 of 100cc. 28.7 x 20.7 cm String-bound Japanese style in lacquered, printed paper covers, done by Suzuki Shigeo. Enclosed in the publisher's patterned cloth-covered chitsu clasped case. Perhaps the finest and most important Creative Print Movement illustrated book of the 20th century and a cornerstone for any collection of Japanese ehon. The Japanese colophon inside the book reveals this example was part of an extra 25 copies printed specifically to be shipped abroad. The book was commissioned by Carl T. Keller, the collector of Don Quixote material and illustrated with 31 hand-colored "stencil-engravings" [katazome], by the master Serizawa, later named a Living National Treasure. The covers, being lacquered, are subject to cracking with any use. This copy is amazingly unblemished, with only the slightest cracking along the hinge line. The chitsu case is complete and very clean with the original clasps. A lovely production, virtually unobtainable, in remarkable condition.

        Exceptional Margaret Mitchell letter as she awaits publication of Gone With the Wind - "I hope you will like the book - ... And not all the characters are noble and brave. Some years of research have convinced me that there were almost as many Scoundrels in the Sixties as there are today. But I hope you like my Scoundrels!..."

      Atlanta, Georgia, April 13, 1936. 4" x 5". "Autograph Letter Signed ""Margaret Mitchell Marsh,"" with postscript signed ""M,"" four full pages, 4"" x 5"", front & verso on two conjoined sheets. Atlanta, Ga, Mon. April 13, 1936. With original 5.25"" x 4.25"" laminated envelope addressed by Mitchell to ""Miss Martha Angley / 104 Bell Hall / Milledgeville / Ga.,"" postmarked Atlanta, April 14, 1936. Handwritten on back flap: ""M.M.M. (light smudge on final ""M"") / 4 East 17th St N.E. #9 / Atlanta, Ga."" Fine condition.In full, ""Thank you for your letter. I'm glad if the information I sent you was of interest. I hope you will like the book - but it isn't a 'White Columns in the Moonlight - Cape jessamine in Miss Melissy's hair' kind of book. And not all the characters are noble and brave. Some years of research have convinced me that there were almost as many Scoundrels in the Sixties as there are today. But I hope you like my Scoundrels!""Yes, I should so like to meet you but as for an interview - well it should be entertaining for if you've never interviewed anyone, I've never been interviewed! My first impulse is to ask you to come out to supper the first night you are here but - let me tell you my situation. My publication date is, presumably, May 5. But it has been changed so often that for all I know it may be changed again. I have promised several people dates from the 5th to the week end. I know I have a tea on the fifth and one on the seventh. And the dear Lord knows what over the week end. But if publication date is postponed I will not have a thing to do. So you see, I'm up in the air. So will you do this? As soon as you get to town, telephone me. If I'm not here, please leave your number with the cook and I'll phone you and make a date. I think it would be lovely if you could come out and have tea (or do you like tea?) one afternoon. I would like to make a definite date but I just can't, right now.""I will be expecting a call from you. Cordially Margaret Mitchell Marsh. P.S. my phone number is Hemlock 6251 - M.""Mitchell writes in the letter here offered, ""I hope you will like the book - but it isn't a 'White Columns in the Moonlight - Cape jessamine in Miss Melissy's hair' kind of book."" Although it isn't that ""kind of book,"" these terms and phrases appear in Gone With the Wind - Mitchell writes in Chapter XI about a letter Ashley Wilkes wrote to his wife Melanie from the battlefield that her sister-in-law Scarlett O'Hara, read ""surreptitiously."" The letter, in part, ""And so when I lie on my blanket and look up at the stars and say, 'What are you fighting for?' I think of States' Rights and cotton and the darkies and the Yankees whom we have been bred to hate, and I know that none of these is the reason why I am fighting. Instead, I see Twelve Oaks and remember how the moonlight slants across the white columns..."" In Chapter IX, Mitchell writes of a bazaar held at the Armory to raise money for the benefit of the hospitals: ""The smallest, the most fragrant blossoms bedecked the girls. Tea roses tucked behind pink ears, cape jessamine and bud roses in round little garlands over cascades of side curls..."" In GWTW, Miss Melissy was Fanny Elsing's mammy. Chapter XXI: ""Through the lane came the frail and elegant Mrs. Elsing ... Jouncing on the back seat of the carriage was her black mammy, Melissy...""In March 1936, Martha Angley (1916-1993), a student majoring in Southern Literature at Georgia State College for Women in Milledgeville, Georgia, was assigned to do a term paper on an up-and-coming Southern writer. She wrote to Dudley Glass, a newspaper reporter on the ""Georgian American,"" for assistance. On April 1, 1936, Glass wrote Miss Angely, in part, ""I don't know any budding authors, except one. Peggy Mitchell has written a book. A swell book, I understand, and I've forgotten the name of it, though she is a pal of mine and my wife's. Macmillan's is publishing it in May..."" Angley immediately wrote Mitchell, known as Peggy to her friends, who replied on April 6th, in part, ""I was very flattered to get your letter -- and I began to feel like a author. As I will not be published for another month, I haven't felt very much like an author until now..."" After she wrote her eight-page, double-spaced, term paper, Angley sent a copy to Margaret Mitchell who replied on July 6th, in part, ""...thought I'd write you and tell you how much I enjoyed your letter and 'our' term paper. I thought it a grand paper and am very flattered that you picked me to write about...""The official release date for ""Gone With the Wind"" was June 30, 1936. In March 1936, the ""Book-of-the-Month Club"" chose it as its selection for July. On July 10, 1936, Margaret Mitchell sold the movie rights to GWTW to producer David O. Selznick for $50,000. On May 3, 1937, Gone With the Wind won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Best Novel. The movie won ten 1939 Academy Awards. A front page article titled ""Book Given by / Peggy Marsh / to Library"" in the October 17, 1936, issue of ""The Colonnade,"" published by the Georgia State College for Women, tells readers: ""The latest member of THE FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY is Margaret Mitchell, who gave a copy of GONE WITH THE WIND to the library with the following inscription: 'Fir the Library of the Georgia State for Women from Margaret Mitchell.' In a letter accompanying the book she said: 'I would like to present this copy to the library, for I shall be happy to be considered one of the Friends of the Library.'"" On page two: ""In Margaret Mitchell's latest letter to Martha Angley, her campus discoverer, she P.S.'s 'Yes, I am wondering too who will play the parts in the movie. But I do not know. I sold the movie rights outright and have no connection with the production. I am not even going to Hollywood as an 'adviser.' What good could I do anyway? In spite of all my efforts they would probably insist on making the characters say 'you all' when addressing one person.'""On August 25, 1938, Clark Gable was signed to play Rhett Butler. On January 13, 1939, producer David O. Selznick announced that Vivien Leigh would play Scarlett O?Hara. Before announcing it to the press, he sent a telegram to Margaret Mitchell at 5:58 PM that day (8:58 PM Atlanta time). Mitchell wanted her old colleagues at ?The Atlanta Constitution? to get the scoop of the year, so she rushed to the newspaper office. The January 14th morning edition was about to go to press, so the editor took out a portion of the front page, replacing it with a photograph of Vivien Leigh and the story headlined ?Scarlett Officially Named!? ?" subheaded ?Choice Revealed / by Miss Mitchell.? The official shooting of Gone With the Wind began on January 26, 1939.Auction records provide that this is one of only 3 ALS's to have hit the market in at least 4 decades and this particular letter has by far the finest content of all."
