        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money.

      London, Macmillan, 1936. - 8vo. XII, 403 pp. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. First edition, first impression of what is generally considered the author's magnum opus, the book widely credited with creating the terminology and shape of modern macroeconomics. One of the iconic books in the development of economic thought by one of the outstanding economists of his generation. "The composition of this book", Keynes declares, "has been for the author a long struggle of escape, and so must the reading of it be for most readers if the author's assault upon them is to be successful, - a struggle of escape from habitual modes of thought and expression. The ideas which are here expressed so laboriously are extremely simple and should be obvious. The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping from the old ones, which ramify, for those brought up as most of us have been, into every corner of our minds" (Preface, p. VIII). "In 1936, although Roosevelt's 'New Deal' had utilized Keynesian prescriptions, 'The General Theory' ('on which', says D.N.B., 'his fame as the outstanding economist of his generation must rest') threw the economists of the world into two violently opposed camps. Yet eight years later Keynes was to dominate the international conference at Bretton Woods, out of which came the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank; and his influence during the ensuing decades, even on his theoretical opponents, has been such that a highly placed American official recently remarked that 'we are all Keynesians today'" (PMM). - Very light discolouring of upper margin (ca 3 cm) of front side, a fine copy.

        Two Boys go Sailing. Illustrated by Brigid Ganly.

      London, J.M.Dent & Sons Ltd. 1936 - First Edition. 8°. Frontispiece - Illustration, VIII, 246 pages with a (partly fictitious) map of Roaringwater Bay on the pastedown and endpaper and 12 illustrations throughout the book. Original, illustrated Hardcover. Excellent condition of this scarce book with only minor signs of external wear to the binding. This is one of the rarest publications on West Cork, Baltimore and Roaringwater Bay. Edward Conor Marshall O'Brien (3 November 1880 – 18 April 1952) was an intellectual, Irish aristocrat, republican, nationalist, pioneer in modern maritime theory, owner and captain of one of the first boats to sail under the tri-colour of the Irish Free State, during his circumnavigation in the Saoirse. He was a grandson of the Fenian William Smith O'Brien. Reputedly this was the first small boat to sail around Cape Horn. This is slightly unfair to Joshua Slocum, the Bostonian, who was the first single-handed yachtsman to successfully pass this way (in 1895) although in the end, extreme weather forced him to use some of the inshore routes between the channels and islands and it is believed he may not have actually passed outside the Horn proper. Given the scale of Slocum's achievement it might be considered unfair to deprive him of the honour! Although it was nearly 30 years later, a strict definition of "the first small boat to sail around outside Cape Horn" could indeed cover the 42-foot (13 m) yacht Saoirse, sailed by Conor O'Brien with three hands, who rounded it during a circumnavigation of the world between 1923 and 1925 It was the first boat flying the Irish tri-colour to enter many of the world's ports and harbours. He was a ship builder/designer (notable boats include the Saoirse and AK Ilen ), gun runner for the Irish Volunteers during the war of independence in Ireland, captain of a ship sailing in the merchant navy during WWII.

        Coeurs volants" Cahiers d'art. 11e annà e, no. 1-2. L'objet

      Paris: Editions Cahiers d'Art, 1936 - The rarest of issues of Zervos' great periodical in a rather poor copy. 94 splendid plates & ills. (3 color). iv + 68 pp. Stiff paper covers. 32 x 24.5 cm. The subtitle promises (and delivers) "Objets mathà matique. Objets naturels. Objets sauvages. Objets trouvà s. Objets irrationnels. Objets ready made. Objets interprà tà s. Objets incorporà s. Objets mobiles." Duchamp designed the famous cover, "Coeurs volants" with its nested hearts in vibrating red and blue especially for this issue. Among the many other artists illustrated are Man Ray (12 rich black-and-white photos in one article and many in others), Magritte, Bellmer, Giacometti, Picasso, Calder, Ernst, and Meret Oppenheim's "Fur-lined teacup," nearly a year before its startling appearance at MoMA in the show "Fantastic art, Dada, and Surrealism." **The condition of this copy leaves much to be desired. It is disbound, with the covers detached and only the top end of the spine present bearing the identification "1936 No. 1-2." The front cover is dulled, faded near the top and spine edge, and with several spots and other small defects (see photo). The rear cover is better but faded at the spine and creased diagonally at the bottom. There are a few small turned upper corners in the first few pages. The latter half has slight rippling from damp, but no pages are stuck or torn. Vanishingly and deservedly rare in any condition, and priced accordingly. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order.

        Work for the Winter: More or Less for Christmas

      privately printed for the author n.d.[1936], n.p. - First edition, sole impression - number of copies unknown. Original cream wrappers printed in black. A selection of poems by Vanessa and Clive Bell's son - somewhat in the same vein as the latter's "Ad Familiares" (1918) - done up as a Christmas greeting. Five of the poems were published the following year by the Hogarth Press as "Work For The Winter and Other Poems" with one of them, `The River Flows' having been revised. Vanessa Bell's copy with her initials in pencil (and a small, gold stick-on star) to the upper wrapper. Julian Bell volunteered as an ambulance driver during the Spanish Civil War and died from shrapnel wounds a month after his arrival. His mother's hair reportedly turned white overnight when she received the news. Virginia Woolf later wrote: "The last time I saw Julian was at Clive's, two days before he went to Spain. I was determined not to think about the risks, because, subconsciously I was sure he would be killed; that is, I had a couchant unexpressed certainty, from Thoby's death I think; a legacy of pessimism, which I have decided never to analyze." That decision appears to have been a mistake every bit as bad as Bell's reasons for going to Spain, which included: " . . . the usefulness of war experience in the future and the prestige one would gain in literature and - even more - Left politics." Two copies are located in UK libraries - the British Library and The National Trust (Sissinghurst) - and eight in North America. Some browning and soiling including some light water-staining to edges of upper wrapper but a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A Map and History of Peiping; formerly known as Peking; capital of provinces, princedoms and kingdoms since 1121 B.C.; in 1264 A.D. the capital of the Mongol Empire of Kublai Khan; made the capital of the Ming Empire through the Ming and Ching Dynasties; and now a city which will live long in the memory of man as one of the greatest the world has ever known.

      1936 - Beijing: Peiyang Press, 1936. Colour-printed wood-engraving. Sheet 860 x 755mm. Original folds reinforced on verso, laid on fine canvas. Very interesting pictorial map of Beijing, drawn by an American officer who was a military attaché in China during the 1930s and published the year before the official start of the Second Sino-Japanese War. It features vignettes of Chinese history from 1100 BC to 1927 as well as modern tourist attractions including golf and race courses. This is an early state: the flag of the German legation is the short-lived national flag used 1933-5 (black/white/red horizontal stripes), replaced by the Nazi flag with the swastica on most examples on this map. Frank Dorn (1901-81) was a graduate of West Point (where he picked up the life-long nickname of 'Pinky'), before being posted to Beijing in 1934 to help gather intelligence on Japanese aggression. He immersed himself in the language and culture of the city, researching the Forbidden City and collecting antiquities. When war with Japan broke out Dorn became chief-of-staff to L.t General Joseph Stilwell, with a rank of Colonel. At one point relations between the Americans and the leader of the Chinese Kuomintang, Chiang Kai-shek, were so bad that Dorn was ordered to prepare a plan to assassinate him. Although Dorn suggested giving Chiang a faulty parachute and sabotaging his plane authorisation was never given. After his retirement as Brigadier General in 1953 Dorn wrote a number of books including 'The Sino-Japanese War, 1937-41', 1974. BAGBY: The Eagle-Dragon Alliance, 1992.

      Wien, Paul Zsolnay Verlag, 1936. - 273 S., 8°, O-Leinen mit O-Umschlag Bloch 2/2397. - Leopold Perutz (1882-1957) blieb trotz seiner erfolgreichen Romane immer finanziell von seiner Familie abhängig. Der Tod seiner Frau im Jahre 1928, kurz nach der Geburt des 3. Kindes, warf Perutz aus seiner erfolgreichen Laufbahn. Die persönliche Krise fiel mit der politischen Krise in Österreich zusammen. Perutz emigrierte im Juli 1938 nach Palästina. Sein literarisches Werk besteht zum großen Teil aus historischen Romanen, die Ergebnisse umfangreicher Quellenstudien sind. Ungezwungen nutzte er Bestandteile theologischer u. magischer Weltbilder. - Umschlag geringfügig fleckig u. mit kl. Randläsuren; Einband leicht bestossen u. fleckig; Vorsatz mit kl. handschrftl.

        THE COOLIE

      London: Lawrence & Wishart 1936 - First Printing. An incredibly rare book by the author considered by many to be THE founding father of Indian English literature. Anand's works have been translated into over 40 languages and his influence is clearly apparent in the works of modern authors such as Salman Rushdie, Vikram Seth and others. Fascinatingly, this first edition is titled "The Coolie" while in all subsequent editions the title has been shortened to simply "Coolie" - presumably either a contextual change authorised by the author or an embarrassing error by Lawrence and Wishart, I have been unable to ascertain which. Original cloth, 343 pp. the book is a very clean and presentable copy in its original dustjacket. There is a very slight lean and at the crown the backstrip has become unglued from the spine - covers still tightly attached, however. At the flyleaf there is a previous owner name written neatly along the top margin, dated 1937. Top edge dust-marked, pushed at the spine tips and corners lightly bumped with minor rubbing. Between Good and Very Good, nevertheless. The dustjacket is unclipped with chipping to both ends of the spine and at the corners and fore-edge of the upper cover. Some other minor tears/nicks and at the spine, which is sunned, a minor biro stroke or mark affecting the author's name. Bright and remarkably clean, a Good condition jacket. Exceptionally scarce, a keynote title in 20th century Indian English literature, [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A note on the Entscheidungsproblem; Finite Combinatory Processes - Formulation I.

      - FIRST EDITIONS IN RARE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS OF TWO LANDMARKS IN COMPUTER SCIENCE: Alonzo Church's solution to the "Halting Problem", proving that an algorithm could not be created to solve every mathematical problem, and Emil Post's description of a logic automaton very similar to Turing's computational machine. On "A note on the Entscheidungsproblem": In 1936, working independently, Alan Turing in his landmark "On Computable Numbers", and Alonzo Church in "A Note on the Entscheidungsproblem", offered solutions to the famous "Halting Problem" (or "Entscheidungsproblem"), the much debated challenge to symbolic logic to discover whether or not any mathematical problem could potentially be solved by an algorithm. Turing and Church both "showed that in general this problem has no solution, proving that no consistent formal system of arithmetic is decidable. This result and others notably the mathematician-logician Kurt Gödel's incompleteness theorems ended the dream of a system that could banish ignorance from mathematics forever. "An important argument of Turing's and Church's was that the class of lambda-definable functions (functions on the positive integers whose values can be calculated by a process of repeated substitution) coincides with the class of all functions that are effectively calculable or computable. This claim is now known as Church's thesis or as the Church-Turing thesis when stated in the form that any effectively calculable function can be calculated by a universal Turing machine, a type of abstract computer that Turing had introduced in the course of his proof. Turing showed in 1936 that the two formulations of the thesis are equivalent by proving that the lambda-definable functions and the functions that can be calculated by a universal Turing machine are identical." Although Church published his findings first, "in a review of Turing's work [not included in this collection], Church acknowledged the superiority of Turing's formulation of the thesis over his own, saying that the concept of computability by a Turing machine 'has the advantage of making the identification with effectiveness evident immediately.'" (Britannica). On Post's "Finite Combinatory Processes - Formulation 1": "Post's first publication in logic after a fifteen year gap was Finite Combinatory Processes - Formulation I, a short paper in which he describes a computational model very similar to that of the Turing machine. Turing's article was received for publication on May 28 1936, while Post's was received October 7 1936; a footnote to Post's article by the editor, Alonzo Church, informs the reader that 'the present article, however, although bearing a later date, was written entirely independently of Turing's.' Post, on the other hand, unlike Turing, had the advantage of having read Church [1936], while Turing's logical influences seem to have been confined to the incompleteness results of Gödel [1931], the Cambridge lectures of Max Newman and the textbook [Hilbert and Ackermann, 1928]. "Unlike Turing, Post does not use the word 'machine,' but instead speaks of a 'problem solver or worker' (however, the term 'Post machine' [Uspensky, 1983] is now standard terminology for the model). The analogue of a Turing machine's 'tape' is provided by a 'symbol space' consisting of a two way infinite sequence of spaces or boxes, each of which is either empty or unmarked. "The worker is assumed to be performing the following primitive acts: (a) Marking the box he is in (assumed empty), (b) Erasing the mark in the box he is in (assumed marked), (c) Moving to the box on his right, (d) Moving to the box on his left, (e) Determining whether the box he is in, is or is not marked. "The set of directions for the worker consists of a sequence of numbered instructions, each instruction having one of the following forms: (A) Perform operation (a), (b), (c) or (d) and then follow direction j, (B) Perform operation (e) and according as the answer is yes or no corresp
