        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.

Illustrator Rudolf Schlichter (1890-1955), der sich auch schriftstellerisch äußerte, ist mit George Grosz und Otto Dix als einer der prägenden Vertreter der "Neuen Sachlichkeit" zu nennen. Sein künstlerischer Weg verlief ebenso wenig geradlinig wie seine persönliche Entwicklung. Der von den Nationalsozialisten verfemte Künstler u. Schriftsteller hatte sich - unter dem Einfluss seiner Frau "Speedy" - bereits in den späten 1920er Jahren von politischer Radikalität, gesellschaftskritischer Provokation u. antibürgerlicher Haltung zum Katholizismus u. Konservativismus bekannt. - Vgl. NDB 23, S. 73 ff. - Schwach gebräunt, verso vereinzelte Flecken, feine Nadelstiche in allen 4 Ecken.

        La Septième Face Du Dé

      Paris: Éditions Jeanne Bucher, 1936. A little light discoloration at the edges, faint beginnings of a split no more than 1 cm at the top of the front panel by the string; overall a beautiful, near fine copy in hand-sewn wrappers as issued. The nicest copy I have seen.. Deluxe Edition of one of the greatest Surrealist books ever published, combining radical ideas in various media, including photography, collage, and graphic design. String-tied, hand-sewn small quarto. Letter "F" of twenty-four lettered artists' copies printed on special blue paper; SIGNED on a marbled cutout affixed to the colophon by Hugnet and Marcel Duchamp, whose collage adorns the cover and incorporates a Man Ray photograph. With an extra original collage by Hugnet, as issued in the deluxe edition, also SIGNED and dated by him. An historically significant association copy linking two masters of surrealism, INSCRIBED in the month of publication by Hugnet to André Breton, the founder and pope of the movement: "A André Breton / au monde merveilleux qu'il habite / ou vivent ses poemes et leurs / ombres diamentifiers / tres affectueusements / Georges Hugnet / 27 Juin 1936" [to André Breton, to the marvelous world he inhabits, where dwell his poems and their shimmering shadows, very fondly, Georges Hugnet, 27 June 1936]." This particular copy has an idiosyncratic quirk: it is lacking one illustration, plate 7, of 20 total. Hugnet was a fastidious worker and assembled all copies himself. The missing illustration depicts a beautiful naked woman chained at the hands. Sexual tension was rampant amongst the surrealists, and Hugnet and Breton were known to have quarreled over women. The figure in the missing plate resembles Breton's wife, Simone Collinet. Whatever the reason, it is hard to imagine Hugnet omitted the illustration intentionally. Since leaving Breton's collection in the landmark Breton sale in Paris, 2003, this copy has surfaced once more at auction, in the Christie's Rare Photobook sale, New York, 2008

        The Southern Gates of Arabia. A Journey in the Hadhramaut.

      London: John Murray, 1936 - Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, facsimile of Stark's signature to front board gilt, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Spine gently rolled, scattered pale markings to cloth, contents slightly toned, a few trivial spots to front free endpaper. A very good copy. Title page printed in red and black, 96 plates, 2 folding maps. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author "To Mr. Guest with affectionate and grateful thanks for much help, from Freya May 1936" on the front free endpaper. Arthur Rhuvon Guest (1869–1946) was an accomplished Arabist who helped Stark with her original researches into Hadramawt history and read her book in manuscript: in the acknowledgements Stark thanks Guest "for his invaluable assistance during the writing of my book – an assistance to which such Islamic learning as appears within its pages is chiefly due". After achieving recognition with her first book The Valley of Assassins (1934), which described travels in Iraq and Iran, Stark went to Hadramawt, southern Arabia, in search of ancient trade routes, landing at Mukallah and travelling inland to Tarim via Jol, Wadi Daw'an, Khuraybah, and such ancient cities as Shibam and Sayun. She returned a celebrity, and her book, "often considered a classic of travel writing" (ODNB) was awarded the Mungo Park medal by the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.
