        Fundamental Psychological Conceptions. A Report of Five Lectures, given under the auspices of the Institute of Medical Psychology, Melet Place, London, W.C.1. September 30 - October 4, 1935. [Next leaf: Edited by Mary Barker and Margaret Game for the Analytical Psychology Club London].

      London, (Duplicated by the Belsize Typewriting Bureau), 1936. 4to. Stitched mimeographed typescript bound in the original green half cloth with a bit of wear to extremities. Printed on rectos only, on wove paper watermarked "WEMCO". A bit of minor brwonspotting, but overall nice and clean. Early ownership inscription to front thee end-paper: "K. Armstrong/ 69 Ridgmount Gardens/ W.C.1."). (3), iii, 235, (1) ff. + f. 89a (being an illustrated leaf). Illustrations in the text, after drawings by Jung, several of them full-page.. Extremely scarce first printing, pre-publication mimeographed typescript "printed as manuscript for private circulation only" (p. i), nr. 84 (number inserted by hand at the bottom of p. i) out of no more than 150 copies at the most. A highly interesting privately published typescript of Jung's London Lectures, the so-called "Tavistock Lectures", which were not actually published until 1968 under the title "Analytical Psychology: Its theory and Practise. The Tavistock Lectures", and which were substantially edited and altered, resulting for instance in the fact that Jung's ruder remarks to the prominent British psychiatrists and psychologists were taken out. Apart from that, the correspondence around the editing of the text shows that the question of tampering with Jung's "holy writ" resulted in great discussions. Already during the earliest decades of the 20th century, the work and lectures of the great Swiss psychologist and founder of analytical psychology, Carl Gustav Jung, had awoken interest in England, and when in 1935 he gave his important lectures on the structure of the unconscious mind, the contents of the unconscious and on the methods used in the investigation of these (i.e. the London Lectures), he was indeed very famous and admired by many. However, the seminars that he moderated (19 in all between 1923 and 1941, most of them in German) were private, and up until 1948 there was no formal Jungian training institute; one could only really learn from the master himself, by participating in his seminars. The attendance, however, was very restricted. It was "by invitation only", and not very many were invited. During the seminar, a transcription of the lectures, of Jung's comments and the exchanges with the students was made and then privately printed, in numbered (by hand) copies that were distributed to the participants and a few "insiders" only, thus the strict statement on p. 1: "This report is printed as manuscript for private circulation only. The copyright belongs to Professor Jung and no part of the Report can be quoted for publication without his express permission." It is not known exactly how many copies of the "London Lectures" were thus mimeographically printed, but it is known that the corresponding typescripts of the early 20'ies seminars were printed in 100 copies and that the number went up during the years, resulting in about 150 copies for the final three seminars that date from the very late 30'ies-very early 40'ies. The present London or Tavistock Lectures are fundamental for Jungian psychology. He states himself that he wishes to give an outline of certain fundamental conceptions of psychology and then goes on to explain the he will mainly deal with the structure of the unconscious mind, the contents of the unconscious, and the method used in the investigation of contents originating in the unconscious psychological process. It is held that it is in the present lectures that Jung introduces the subject of archetypes and the collective unconscious. "The Tavistock Lectures. 5 lectures which Jung delivered to English medical doctors in 1935. This book is an excellent introduction to Jung's theory, as he assumed no prior knowledge on the part of the audience. As Joseph Campbell put it in Book World, "This, surely, is the most lucid, simple and orderly introduction to the basic principles and methods of the Jungian science of the psyche that has yet been offered to the public." (Preface to the first printed version of the text, 1968)

        Rare appointment of a delegate to the 1936 Inter-American Conference for the Maintenance of Peace in Buenos Aires signed by FDR and Secretary of State Cordell Hull – both of whom attended –Hull’s achievements at this conference were among the reasons he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize nine years later

      Typed Document Signed “Franklin D. Roosevelt” as President and “Cordell Hull” as Secretary of State, one page, 10” x 13.5”. Washington, D.C., October 23, 1936. In part, “Know Ye, that reposing special trust and confidence in the Integrity and Ability of Mrs. Elise F. Musser, of Utah, I do appoint her a Delegate of the United States of America to the Inter-American Conference for the Maintenance of Peace, to be held at Buenos Aires, Argentina, beginning December 1, 1936...” Superb 3.5”-diameter embossed paper Great Seal of the United States affixed at left. Light creases in blank areas, lightly tanned at perimeter from prior framing. Fine condition. Elise Furer Musser (1877-1967) served as a Utah State Senator and Democratic National Committeewoman before this appointment as one of seven delegates representing the United States at the Inter-American Conference for the Maintenance of Peace held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, December 1-23, 1936. Secretary of State Cordell Hull chaired the delegation. President Roosevelt traveled to Buenos Aires aboard the U.S.S. “Indianapolis” and delivered an address at the opening session. It’s interesting to note that on January 27, 1937, the Cabinet of the Republic of Cuba passed a resolution proposing President Roosevelt as a candidate for the 1937 Nobel Peace Prize because of his efforts for peace at the conference but it was Cordell Hull who was the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1945 for his work for peace. The December 10, 1945 presentation speech by Gunnar Jahn, Chairman of the Nobel Committee, mentioned “the Pan-American policy sponsored by Roosevelt and Hull” and that “one of the achievements of the Buenos Aires Conference was the approval of an agreement for collective security and neutrality in the event of war.”

        Turn, Magic Wheel

      Farrar & Rinehart New York: Farrar & Rinehart. (1936). First. First edition. Some foxing and wear to the boards, spine repaired, a very good copy in a supplied, good dustwrapper with a crease on the spine and with small chips and tears. This copy Inscribed but not signed by Powell to her close friend Hannah Green: "To Green, My Queen. Euch." Green made a point of collecting Powell's older books, apparently and as evidenced here, much to Powell's dismay. By consensus the best novel on New York's bohemian life by this satirical, proto-feminist novelist who has recently been rediscovered. Gore Vidal, whose critical essay helped restore her fame, called her a better satirist than Twain and said she was "our best comic novelist." Ernest Hemingway once told her she was his "favorite living novelist" -- although she was not averse to poking fun at Hemingway himself, which she did in her novel, The Wicked Pavilion. Novelist Lisa Zeidner, in a review of the Tim Page biography of Powell in The New York Times Book Review, said that "she is wittier than Dorothy Parker, dissects the rich better than F. Scott Fitzgerald, is more plaintive than Willa Cather in her evocation of the heartland and has a more supple control of satirical voice than Evelyn Waugh, the writer to whom she's most often compared." Powell was an archetypal free spirit, living much of her life in Greenwich Village, taking -- and flaunting -- lovers frequently although she was married, and mercilessly skewering the postures and foibles of an array of New York types, from bohemian artists to wealthy tycoons. An exceptionally scarce book. .

        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money.

      London, Macmillan, 1936. 8vo. Original cloth, original dust jacket. An outstanding copy; two small closed tears in the jacket, otherwise in near mint condition. XII,430,(1) pp.. First edition of one of the most important books in the history of economics. Keynes' book is often compared to Smith's 'Wealth of Nations' and Marx's 'Kapital'. It forms the foundation of of Keynesian economics, the most influential economic system of the twentieth-century. "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. ... (In his General Theory of Employment), he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate. By-passing what he termed the 'underworlds' of Marx, Gesell and Major Douglas, he propounded a hardly less unorthodox programme for national and international official monetary policies. ... 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'". (Printing and the Mind of Man, 423)

        Babbage's Calculating Engines. Being a Collection of Papers Relating to Them; Their History, and Construction. [Compiled by Henry Prevost Babbage.]London: E. and F.N. Spon, 1889. First edition.

      The principal source of information for the technical operation of Babbage's Difference and Analytical engines, and a rare book on the market. <br/><br/> "Toward the end of his life, Babbage began assembling his own and other's previously published writings on the Difference and Analytical Engines with the intent of publishing a history of the machines, but died before he could accomplish this task. He had the first 294 pages of this work typeset and printed on slightly varying types of paper during his lifetime. It would appear that its purpose was to collect the most significant published writings, many of which had appeared as obscure pamphlets or in little-read journals, together with a listing of what remained unpublished, including all of Babbage's notebooks and engineering drawings [listed on pp. 271-294], in the hope that his unfinished projects might be completed at some future date. The book was completed by Babbage's youngest son, Major-General Henry Prevost Babbage, to whom Babbage had bequeathed his calculating engines and everything pertaining to them. <br/><br/> "Were it not for this volume and the bibliography of Babbage's works published both here (on the last three printed pages of the book) and in Babbage's autobiography, Babbage's achievements might have been forgotten. As it turned out the information was never implemented literally, probably because construction of the mechanical Analytical Engine was just too complex a project for any organization except a government to undertake. Yet Babbage's ambitions and his ideas remained alive in the minds of people working in mechanical computation long after his technology had fallen into obsolescence. When Vannevar Bush suggested in 1936 that electromechanical technology might be the way to realize 'Babbage's large conception' of the Analytical Engine, he cited this volume among his references; and in building the electromechanical Harvard Mark I, Howard Aiken saw himself as fulfilling Babbage's ambition" (OOC).<br/><br/> Hyman 254; OOC 94 (modern reprint only); Van Sinderen CB80, showing that Babbage listed a History of the Analytical Engine as being "in the press" in 1864.. 4to: 287 x 225 mm. Pp. [8], 342, [4]. Portrait, folding table, 15 plates (several folding, including 1 large-folding, with some repairs to the margin). Modern dark green cloth in imitation of the original binding, "Babbage's Calculating Engines" lettered in gilt on upper board and on spine, some leaves browned due to acidic paper, old repairs to folds of some plates, armorial bookplate on title verso

      Paris, 1936. 8vo. Bound uncut with the original printed green and greay wrappers, also the backstrip, in an exquisite dark green morocco binding with gilt horizontal (author, place, year) and vertical (title, in large capitals) lettering to spine and beautiful lacquered marbled green and grey paper laid in on boards, covering all but a "frame" of ab. 3 mm. Top edge gilt. Gilt super-ex libris to inside of front board, the bottom of which is signed in gilt: "J-P Miguet". Housed in a green paper slip-case with green morocco edges. Near mint copy. (4), 162, (2, -Table) pp.. First edition of Sartre's first book, of which no numbered or large paper copies were printed, and which thus only appeared thus. Published when Sartre was 30 years old, "L'Imagination" constitutes his first full philosophical work and the first presentation of his basic arguments concerning phenomenology, consciousness and intentionality, which he later developed in full, and which came to have a profound influence on 20th century philosophy.Sartre, who on the title-page is described as "professeur au lycée du Havre", was requested to write the present work by Professor H. Delacroix, who was the supervisor on his dissertation. Before establishing his central arguments about "Imagination", Sartre famously criticizes earlier theories of imagination, in particular those of Descartes, Leibnitz, and Hume. He goes on to discussing psychological theories of imagination, including Bergson - the critique of whom offended for instance Meeau-Ponty, who otherwise praised Sartre's book. Finally, Sartre provides a highly important interpretation of Husserl's theory of imagination, which foreshadows the phenomenological way of understanding imagination that was to dominate the decades to come. As thus, the work constitutes an important work in the history of phenomenology. and of 20th century philosophy.Contat & Rybalka: 36/8
