        GENERAL THEORY OF EMPLOYMENT, INTEREST AND MONEY

      London: Macmillan, 1936. FIRST EDITION. This is an especially appealing copy of Keynes' masterpiece, widely considered the most influential economic treatise of the 20th century. "General Theory" is the foundational document of macroeconomics, an argument for government intervention in the economy, espousing a managed capitalism that would not suffer from the highs and lows of the laissez-faire free market, as recently experienced in the Great Depression. According to PMM, "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." DNB describes Keynes (1883-1946) as a "philosopher, economist, editor, pamphleteer, company chairman, college bursar, patron of the arts and intimate friend of writers and artists, government spokesman and adviser. In each capacity he excelled." His ideological opponent Lionel Robbins called him "one of the most remarkable men that ever lived. The quick logic, the bird-like swoop of intuition, the vivid fancy, the wide vision, above all the incomparable sense of the fitness of words, all combine to make something several degrees beyond the limit of ordinary human achievement.". 220 x 148 mm. (8 3/4 x 5 1/2"). 1 p.l., xii, 403 pp. FIRST EDITION. Original blue-green cloth, original printed gray dust jacket (unclipped). PMM 423. Spine of dust jacket uniformly sunned and slight frayed at top (with tiny losses), top of jacket elsewhere with a hint of soil, otherwise very fine, the covers of the jacket clean and smooth, and THE VOLUME ITSELF IN PERFECT CONDITION.

Upon inquiring, I found that one of the men in the Control Room had accidently pulled the wrong lever causing the Airship to go down, but had discovered his error immediately. The passengers remained very calm, and the Captain assured them there was no danger…” In his obituary in the “Chicago Daily Tribune,” Albert E. Jessurun (1864-1938), a Chicago food broker and founder of the Chicago Tenants Protective League, was described as “a veteran traveler. He was a passenger on the ill fated dirigible Hindenburg’s first round trip to Germany from Lakehurst, N.J.

        Edgar Burroughs

      October 14, 1936. Typed Letter Signed <I>"Edgar Rice Burroughs,"</I> on his corporate letterhead, one page, 8.5" x 11", Tarzana, California, October 14, 1936, to Walter Popek of Garfield, New Jersey. Light folds, else fine condition.<br /><br /> Burroughs writes to an autograph collector apologizing that he has <I>"no suitable photograph to autograph for your collection. I am, however autographing the card enclosed with your letter [not present], and am returning it herewith."</I> Burroughs adds, <I>"It is rather difficult to answer your last paragraph as, of course, my boyhood idols appear rather silly to me now, and none of my ambitions was along the writing line."</I> <br /><br />Burroughs had started life in the military, but failing the entrance exam for West Point, he ended up as an enlisted soldier in the 7th Cavarly stationed in Arizona. After being diagnosed with a heart problem, he was judged ineligible for military service and discharged in 1897. After a string of odd jobs without much direction, Burroughs began writing pulp fiction. After he made nearly $400 (roughly $8,800 today) from his selling his first story, "Under the Moons from Mars" in 1912, he soon quit his day job and began writing full-time. He remarked in 1929: "...if people were paid for writing rot such as I read in some of those magazines, [then] I could write stories just as rotten. As a matter of fact, although I had never written a story, I knew absolutely that I could write stories just as entertaining and probably a whole lot more so than any I chanced to read in those magazines."<br /><br />

        Flug und Werft. Erster bis dritter Jahrgang 1936 bis 1938 vollständig * G A N Z L E D E R A U S G A B E

      Berlin, Verlag der Deutschen Arbeitsfront, 1936 - (noch zu Nr.13163:) ". . . Die Zusammenfassung der Behandlung aller Verbrechen gegen Staat und Volk zu einem solchen ordentlichen Gerichtshof hatte die Folge, daß die Verhältnisse viel besser übersehen werden konnten, als dies mit den einzelnen Senaten des Reichsgerichtes möglich gewesen war daß außerdem eine unbedingte Einheitlichkeit der Wertung gesichert wurde. Bei der Arbeit des Volksgerichtshofes hatte sich gezeigt, dass in verschwindend wenigen Fällen die vorgekommenen hochverräterischen Angriffe allein aus dem Innern des Reiches gekommen waren. Die Ermittlungen ergaben vielmehr fast durchgängig, daß die Fäden ins Ausland führten. Von dort her kam der Anstoß; von dort her kamen die Geldmittel. In zweijähriger Arbeit hat der Volksgerichtshof seine ihm übertragenen Aufgaben erfüllt und sich durch seine wirklich volksnahe und gradlinige Rechtsprechung das allgemeine Vertrauen des deutschen Volkes erworben. Die anfangs gehässigen Stimme des Auslandes verstummten mehr und mehr. An ihre Stelle trat der bedauernde Wunsch ausländischer Berichterstatter, dass man in ihrem Lande ein solches Gericht nicht besitze"), 550-Jahr-Feier der Universität Heidelberg, Wehrdienst und Arbeitsverhältnis, Sozialpolitik im Deutschen Reich, Rückschau auf das vierte Jahr nationalsozialistischen Staatsführung, Jüdische Taktlosigkeiten, Aus der sowjetischen Luftwaffe (Zwillingsmaschinengewehr, Bomber, Scheinwerferformation), Betrachtungen über das neue Beamtengesetz, Gefährdung des Weltfriedens durch Moskau, Weltluftverkehrsstrecken, Nationalsozialistische Betriebsführung, Untergang des LZ "Hindenburg", Der Aufbau der Bewegung, ihre Gliederungen und angeschlossenen Verbände (drei Seiten zur Organisation der NSDAP), Stapellauf für das erste KdF.-Urlauberschiff "Wilhelm Gustloff", Sowjetjüdisches Verbrechen von Ibiza, Großmächte des Luftozeans, Flugsicherungsschiff "Friesenland", Vernichtung der sowjetrussischen Vernichte untereinander, Moskau fordert Zersetzung der westeuropäischen Armeen, der bolschewistische Aufmarsch im Luftraum, Flugmotorenbeschreibung: Flugmotor Bramo "Fafnir" und Mercedes-Benz "DB 600", Stahlbleche für den Flugzeugbau, Schmieröle für Flugmotoren, Bauformen von Flugmotoren, Duraluminium, allerlei Gefahren der Treibstoffe, Punktschweißen im Flugzeugbau, Klopfen von Vergasermotoren, Elektrowerkzeug im Flugzeugbau, der Großmächte 1936, Vorbeimarsch der Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler vor dem Führer am 5.Jahrestag der Machtergreifung, Bauten von Adolf Hitler, die Wehrmacht und der Arbeitsdienst Adolf Hitlers, die Jugend Adolf Hitlers, Erholung für die schaffenden Menschen Adolf Hitlers, deutscher Flieger-Handwerker Wettbewerb, Deutscher Luftwaffen-Offiziernachwuchs, Festtage in den Luftwaffenschmieden Dessau und Warnemünde, Korpsführer Christiansen, Weltjudentum als Weltkriegshetzer, Rhön-Segelflug-Wettbewerb 1938, Erstes Internationales Luftrennen des NS.-Fliegerkorps, Besichtigung der Torpedo-Werkstätten auf dem englischen Flugplatz Gosport, Stalin und die westlichen Demokratien als Beschützer der Tschechow-Slowakei, Verleihung des Deutschen Nationalpreises 1938 an die Flugzeugkonstrukteure Messerschmitt und Heinkel, Parade der deutschen Luftwaffe vor Generalfeldmarschall Hermann Göring im befreiten Sudetenland (abgebildet der Vorbeimarsch einer Fahnen-Abteilung der Fallschirmjäger im Stechschritt), Das Judentum und seine Bundesgenossen; Taufakt und Stapellauf: erster Flugzeugträger der Deutschen Kriegsmarine auf der Adolf-Hitler-Henning in Kiel am 8.November 1938 in Anwesenheit des Führers - das Schiff erhielt den Namen "Graf Zeppelin", Leistungserprobung bei Flugmotoren, Buchenholz und Kunstharzleime im Flugzeugbau, Moderne Bearbeitung von Pleuelstangen für Flugmotor; Plexiglas ein Glas aus Kunstharz usw. - Exemplar in guter Erhaltung. - Luxusausgabe, Flugwesen, europäische Luftfahrt, deutsche Rüstungsindustrie, illustrierte Bücher, deutsche / amerikanische / französische / englische / italienische Flugzeugfertigung, Fliegerei, Militä [Attributes: First Edition]

        Stories of Three Decades.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, , 1936. Translated from the German by H. T. Lowe-Porter. Octavo. Original oatmeal cloth, titles to spine and front board in brown, rules in green, top edge green. With the typographical dust jacket designed by George Salter. An excellent copy in the jacket with lightly toned spine panel. First edition in English, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "To Mr Eric Estorick with my best wishes. New York, April '37. Thomas Mann". Estorick (1913–1993) was an American art dealer and sociologist, who studied and taught at New York University, becoming a lecturer in sociology in 1938. He interviewed Mann for his article "Thomas Mann: The Artist as Citizen" ( The Washington Square College Review, Vol. 1, No. 7, 1937), which likely brought him this inscribed copy of Stories of Three Decades. In 1939 Estorick collaborated with Mann's eldest daughter, Erika, on a paper ("Private and Governmental Aid of Refugees"). Estorick moved to London after World War II, where he founded the Estorick Collection of modern Italian painting in north London. The dust jacket, designed by George Salter, was the first design for Mann he had executed under Knopf, and it was the start of a successful partnership between the designer and publisher: "the titles for Knopf set him on course to become the premiere designer of Mann's works in America" (Thomas Hansen, Classic Book Jackets: The Design Legacy of George Salter, 2005. p. 33).

Top edges gilt, other untrimmed. With over 150 reproductions of drawings, photographs and diagrams, but lacking the two folding maps which should be housed in a separate envelope at the rear. Cloth sides a little marked with just a touch of light tanning to extreme margins of the first four or five leaves of the first volume. Not a fine set, but really very good. O'Brien A118 & A189. "A first typewritten text of the thesis served as a draft for a corrected version, also typewritten, which was bound with numbered illustrations and submitted to the examiners. The author then began to revise the rough copy again in pencil, apparently with a view to publication, altering the wording and writing comments in the margins. The title 'Crusader Castles' appears only in this version. After the examination (in which he was placed in the First Class), one of the judges of the thesis urged the University Press to publish it in book form, saying however that not one of the illustrations could be spared; the cost was considered prohibitive." - from A.W.Lawrence's foreword.. Book Condition: Very Good. Binding: Hardcover

        Stories of Three Decades. Translated from the German by H. T. Lowe-Porter.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1936 - Octavo. Original oatmeal cloth, titles to spine and front board in brown, rules in green, top edge green. With the typographical dust jacket designed by George Salter. An excellent copy in the jacket with lightly toned spine panel. First edition in English, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "To Mr Eric Estorick with my best wishes. New York, April '37. Thomas Mann". Estorick (1913&#150;1993) was an American art dealer and sociologist, who studied and taught at New York University, becoming a lecturer in sociology in 1938. He interviewed Mann for his article "Thomas Mann: The Artist as Citizen" ( The Washington Square College Review, Vol. 1, No. 7, 1937), which likely brought him this inscribed copy of Stories of Three Decades. In 1939 Estorick collaborated with Mann's eldest daughter, Erika, on a paper ("Private and Governmental Aid of Refugees"). Estorick moved to London after World War II, where he founded the Estorick Collection of modern Italian painting in north London. The dust jacket, designed by George Salter, was the first design for Mann he had executed under Knopf, and it was the start of a successful partnership between the designer and publisher: "the titles for Knopf set him on course to become the premiere designer of Mann's works in America" (Thomas Hansen, Classic Book Jackets: The Design Legacy of George Salter, 2005. p. 33).

        A group of 3 Autograph Letters Signed and 1 Typed Letter Signed ("Eric Gill"), to Dr. A.C. Jordan about giving a prize of his "Clothes," and regarding a party given by the Men's Dress Reform Party

      Pigotts, North Dean, High Wycombe, 1936. 1 p. each, annotations in another hand at bottom of one. 8vo. Old folds, letter of July 2 unevenly toned. 1 p. each, annotations in another hand at bottom of one. 8vo. To the secretary of the Men's Dress Reform Party. Three letters to Dr. Alfred Charles Jordan (1872-1956), British radiologist, co-founder of the New Heath Society, and Honorary Secretary of the Men's Dress Reform Party. In the letter of June 9, Gill agrees to present a copy of his book, Clothes (1931), at the upcoming revel of the MDRP, and says he's asked his publisher Cape to send a copy for him to autograph. In the letter of June 17, he encloses the book and thanks Jordan for tickets to the event, saying he will "certainly come ... unless run over or in jug." In the letter of July 2, he writes, "I did enjoy the evening at Suffolk St. very much. But I was sorry so many of the men were merely in 'fancy' dress." He also accepts Jordan's invitation to have his name added to the organization's permanent committee. Accompanying the group is a Typed Letter Signed of Gill, dated May 13, 1936, in which Gill requests four issues of the MDRP publication. The subtitle of Gill's "Clothes," is "An essay upon the nature and significance of the natural and artificial integuments worn by men and women." In it Gill presents many ideas on dress reform for both men and women, among which was his advocacy the skirt or tunic by both men and women, a style that Gill himself adopted. The Men's Dress Reform Party was active from 1929-1940, and grew out of discussions within the Clothing Subcommittee of the New Health Society, which had been co-founded by Dr. Jordan in 1925. (For a history of the MDRP, including Dr. Jordan's role in it, see Barbara Burman, "Better and Brighter Clothes," Journal of Design History, Vol. 8, No. 4 (1995), pp. 275-290).

        [20 TYPED LETTERS SIGNED from H.L. Mencken to [Arnold Francis Gates] Gates (1914-1993), each dated and signed on Mencken’s distinctive horizontal half sheet letterhead, typed on one side only. Baltimore: July 3, 1936 to September 4, 1942.].

      Baltimore,: 1936-42., 1936. 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches (each). Gates was an Abraham Lincoln enthusiast, poet, author, and became a scholar of Civil War and Lincoln history. He was an officer of the New York City Civil War Round Table. These letters are all addressed to Arnold Gates and cover a variety of subjects. The tone is friendly, but terse. Both followed and perhaps donated to a prisoner named Joseph Russell, who was first a robber and then a forger and plagiarist. Mencken and Gates occasionally are light-hearted, such as M’s thoughts on persons born in September (including himself, naturally). He declines membership to the Roughriders Club â€

        Sagittarius Rising.

      London: Peter Davies, 1936 - Octavo. Original grey marl cloth, lettered on the spine in dark blue. With the dust jacket. A few small patches of soiling at the edges of the boards corresponding to chips from the jacket which is a little rubbed and soiled, and slightly ragged along the edges, but remains textually and pictorially complete, contemporary ownership inscription to the front free endpaper, text-block lightly toned, but altogether a very good copy. First edition, first impression of one of the classics of Great War literature, widely considered as the finest flying memoir of the war, and here offered in the exceptionally uncommon dust jacket. "At seventeen, standing 6 feet 4 inches tall and equipped with a precocious intelligence, Lewis lied about his age to join the Royal Flying Corps. He celebrated his eighteenth birthday in France, flying patrols over the western front at a time when the average life expectancy of a pilot was three weeks. On 1 July 1916 he flew the first patrol of the Somme offensive and witnessed the mile-high column of earth thrown up by the detonation of mines under the German positions. Later he duelled with the 'circus' of Manfred von Richthofen and was the last man to see the aircraft of Albert Ball VC, the allied ace who vanished in a bank of cloud. Lewis also hunted Gotha airships over London by moonlight, and in 1917 he was awarded the Military Cross for continuous bravery" (ODNB). On publication, the book was reviewed in the New Statesman by George Bernard Shaw, who Lewis had encountered while deputy director of programmes at the BBC, and who had permitted him make the first film adaptation of one of his plays. Shaw's high praise guaranteed the book's immediate success: "This is a book everyone should read. It is the autobiography of an ace, and no common ace either This prince of pilots had a charmed life in every sense of the word". [Attributes: First Edition]

        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 correspondingly follow direction number i or direction number j, (C) Stop."One box is to be singled out and called the starting point. A problem is given in symbolic form by a finite number of boxes being marked with a stroke, and the output is given in the same form. With these conventions, a set of instructions serves to define a computable function, where the positive integer n is symbolized by a sequence of n consecutive marked boxes."Post conjectures (correctly) but does not prove that his formulation is equivalent to Church's definition of computable functions. His formulation is strikingly similar to Turing's earlier definition, though Turing's notion of machine configurations or 'm-configurations' does not appear in Post's development. This role is played by the numbers assigned to the instructions in Post's sets of directions. Although Turing's notion of computing machine, rather than Post's, has become the standard model in theoretical computer science, Post's formulation is a little more like standard machine code (since programs typically do consist of numbered instructions). To put the matter in computer science terms: Post shows that a computer that can only perform the primitive acts of reading, writing, moving and following jump instructions conditional on a zero test is a universal computational model."Post evidently had plans to continue in a series of articles on the topic (as appears in the title of his paper) showing how "Formulation 1" could be extended to broader computational models" but never completed the project.
