CHURCH, ALONZO; POST, EMIL
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 proo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Berberova, Nina
Petropolis, Berlin, 1936. Octavo (19 × 13 cm). Original decorative wrappers; 300, [4] pp. Spine extremities lightly frayed; lacking portion of front wrapper and upper 3 cm. of first blank leaf; text block slightly resized, else about very good. A biography of the composer Tchaikovsky by the emigre writer Nina Berberova (1901-1993). Berberova was a Russian poet, novelist, and critic, who wrote about the Russian Diaspora in Paris after emigrating in 1922. Her book on Tchaikovsky was the first book-length biography of the composer. After the publication in the 1930s of Tchaikovsky's correspondence with Nadezhda von Meck (the composer's long-term patroness and confidante), Berberova embarked upon a biography of Tchaikovsky that sought to reveal the "truth" of his personality. Her biography received significant attention for its frank mention of Tchaikovsky's homosexuality, without resort to sensationalism. She wrote two other biographies, one on the composer Borodin and the other on the poet Aleksandr Blok. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Schlichter, Rudolf.
1936. Auf glattem Zeichenkarton mit Siegel "Anker" in Trockenprägung. Ca. 50 X 65 cm. ¶ Der Maler, Graphiker u. 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.

A collection of typescripts originating with the French intelligence services active in Syria and Lebanon during the French League of Nations mandate in the region. Among the documents is a 22-page, closely typed report on Bahrain, written in the summer of 1936, outlining the country's history, situation, population, government, economy, foreign relationships and influences. This is accompanied by two detailed coloured sketch maps of the Gulf (showing Bahrain off the coast of Qatar and the entire Gulf from Kuwait to Oman, with the British and American spheres of interest and the international air routes marked). Also included is a report from the "Controle Bedouin de la Mouvance de Damas" based on a "source très sérieuse" regarding the activities of General Glubb in Iraq (stamped "Secret"), dated 15 December 1930; additional material concerns the supply of uniforms to a military unit being formed by Glubb. Furthermore, there is a 23-page list of "Personnalités officielles et notabilités Damascaines" for the use of the Syrian delegation and the intelligence community - a Who-Is-Who of 1920s Damascus.

Title page in red and black lettering.This scarce Soviet monograph is entirely dedicated to the art of John Heartfield (1891-1968), a German artist whose anti-Nazi and anti-Fascist photomontages made him a pioneer in the use of art as a political weapon. Heartfield also created book jackets for authors such as Upton Sinclair, as well as stage sets for such noted playwrights as Bertolt Brecht and Erwin Piscator.Designed by Solomon Telingater (1903-1969), a Soviet graphic artist, and a founding member of the October group (a collective of Constructivist artists formed in 1928), this work is lavishly illustrated throughout with numerous b/w, duo-tone and color photographic reproductions of political photomontages, such as posters, covers for the daily "Die Rote Fahne," the weekly Arbeiter-Illustrierte-Zeitung (AIZ), and the color reproduction of eight Upton Sinclair book jackets.

Lukash, Ivan Sozontovich (1892-1940)
[Germany] 1936 - Contemporary tan cloth binding (30 × 21.5 cm); gilt title to front board; typescript to rectos only (a few ribbon, but mostly carbon copies); [1], 2-239 leaves. Occasional annotations and corrections in ink by at least one hand, possibly by a native Russian speaker, judging from the cursive shapes. Spine extremities and corners slightly rubbed; else very good. Bound corrected typescript of an unpublished translation into German of Ivan Lukash's novel V'iuga (The Blizzard, written in approximately 1933-36), by an unidentified translator. With numerous small corrections and annotations in ink. The typescript appears to have been bound in Germany, judging from the typeface employed on the front board, most likely with the intent of finding a potential publisher in Berlin. To date, the only novel by Lukash to appear in German was Moscow in Flames (Berlin, 1931), translated by writer and musicologist Oskar von Riesemann (1880-1934).Lukash wrote V'iuga for an international literary contest announced in 1933 by the Catholic Academy of Social Education and Cooperation in Paris, which required authors to depict the psychology of Bolshevism and to capture the damage it had wrought to family, country, and society. He chose to set the novel in his native St. Petersburg; V'iuga depicts the tragic effects of WWI, the February and October Revolutions, and the ensuing Civil War on the inhabitants of an apartment building in the city center. In his preface to the first Russian edition of the novel, Lukash notes that along with one other Russian writer, he was initially awar … [Click Below for Full Description]

FITZGERALD, F. Scott.
[Asheville, NC: Grove Park Inn, summer 1936]. First draft: 20 leaves, various sizes (largest 330 x 214 mm), partly triple-spaced typescript with pencil holograph amendments, completed in pencil manuscript. Second draft: 9 pages (US Letter: 11 x 8.5 ins), double-spaced typescript with pencil holograph amendments. Two original drafts, the first draft and the second and final draft, for Fitzgerald's short story "I Didn't Get Over", written in summer 1936 and published in Esquire magazine that October. The most noticeable differences between the two drafts are at the beginning and end of the piece. The title is slightly changed: in the first draft, it is "I Never Got Over"; in the second, that is amended in manuscript to "I Didn't Get Over". In the story, a former army captain who failed to make it to the front in the First World War confesses his responsibility for a training-camp accident that claimed the lives of several soldiers. At the end, the second draft, Fitzgerald adds in pencil the coda that makes the identity of the army captain clear: "I was that captain, and when I rode up to join my company he acted as if he'd never seen me before. It kind of threw me off—because I used to love this place. Well—good night." The summer of 1936 was a difficult one for Fitzgerald. From February to April 1936, he had published the essays in Esquire magazine that are now well known as The Crack-Up, the articles that helped invent confessional journalism, in which he revealed the collapse of his life and his hopes, and his determination to save himself with his art. A year or so later, … [Click Below for Full Description]

The front panel of this book is a colour illustration of Karloff and Elsa Lanchester. Scans invited. Rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

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 by accident.

Historians and researchers will also recognize the diary as an unparalleled look into this young girl's life; what appears to be an idyllic life of carefree times with the back drop of Arab terror of the 1936 Arab Riots and the political difficulties living under British Mandate and of course that of her famous father, mother and siblings. Research finds that the diary was written in the month Tamuz and the year Tarzav thusly identifying the time as the summer of 1936. We also learn that Renana used to go to the sea with her sister and friends for a swim on Saturday's and holiday mornings. She liked swimming on her stomach. She was too shy to participate in games on the beach with a group of friends who were her friend's friends - Miriam's friends. This group was going there regularly. Miriam begged her to join the game, and she finally succumbed and joined. She was very shy. She describes in detail a celebration that took place for her sister's graduation. A special dress was made for her for the occasion. All the relatives were invited and also the teacher and his wife. The gifts to the sis … [Click Below for Full Description]

L'Art ancien SA (Zurich)
Zurich, L'Art ancien, 1936-1970. Fourteen catalogues (25 cm) in 13 volumes, original wrappers. - L'Art Ancien was founded in 1920 in Lugano, Switzerland, by Dr Erwin Rosenthal (1889-1981), and was initially linked to the firm of his father, Jacques Rosenthal, in Munich; in 1935 it became fully autonomous. From 1941 until 1958 Erwin Rosenthal lived in the United States and the firm was managed successively by Arthur Spaeth (1835-1937), Alfred Frauendorfer (1937-1971), and Felix Rosenthal (1971-1983), a son of Erwin Rosenthal. Their characters and preferences shaped the firm's stock: an initial concentration on incunabula and early printed books, medicine and science, gave way to drawings and prints of the 15th-20th centuries (notably ornament prints), then to Art Nouveau and fine printing. During the 63 years of its existence (1920-1983), the firm issued 72 catalogues and about 200 lists and bulletins, and conducted 22 auction sales in association with Haus der Bücher (Basel) and Kornfeld & Klipstein (Bern). ¶ Spines of some wrappers decayed.

Edited by Lady Houston D.B.E.
London: The Chawton Publishing Co Ltd, 8th August 1936 to 9th January 1. The Saturday Review - 21 consecutive editions edited by Lady Houston D.B.E. + One edited after her death.Weight is 2.7kg for all 22 copiesThese magazines are very rare, I could only find one other single copy from the 1930's on the internet. This weekly magazine was owned and edited by Lady Houston in the 1930's. She is probably most famous in aviation circles as she sponsored development of the Supermarine Spitfire, being know by some as the "Saviour of the Spitfire". This was a very political and patriotic magazine and these 22 editions all come from the turbulent period leading up to World War 2. Some of the headlines such as, Ten Millions of English Money for Bolshevism, The Death Rattle of the League, Where Will Eden Take Us? all point to the political nature of the magazine. Lady Houston's motto was Britain and the Empire First and that thread runs through all of the editions here.The edition dated 26.12.1936 is presumably the last edition edited by Lady Houston as she died on the 29.12.1936. The condition is acceptable for weekly magazines from that date. Many pages have foxing and most copies have some slight tears in the spine of the cover as well as some general wear and tear commensurate with age. Other than the general spine issues noted the following should be stated for completeness:29.08.1936 - Cover is loose, all pages intact05.09.1936 - Slight tear on cover and first 3 pages10.10.1936 - Cover is loose, all pages in tact with spine split also on back cover24.10.1936 - Cover intact but m … [Click Below for Full Description]

[37th Battalion]. McNICOL, Norman Gordon:
Melbourne, printed by The Modern Printing Company, 1936. Octavo, [xxiv] (last blank), 354, [2] pages with 12 maps and a 3-page facsimile letter plus 20 pages of plates (from photographs). Cloth a little flecked; spine lightly sunned; boards slightly bowed; edges, endpapers and the first few leaves lightly foxed, with the front flyleaf unevenly offset; basically, an excellent copy. The book is not identified as such, but it comes from the personal collection of Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander Thomas Paterson (1886-1950), Commanding Officer of the 39th Battalion AIF, and the author of that battalion's history. This copy is signed by the author on the half-title. Lieutenant Norman Gordon McNicol enlisted in the 37th in early 1916; he was several times badly wounded in action, and was awarded the Military Cross in 1917.

NOTT STANLEY CHARLES
Batsford, London, 1936. First UK Edition. A review of its characteristics, decoration, folklore and symbolism. This important volume on Chinese Jade is now much sought-after and increasingly scarce as a First Edition (especially in its D/W). 39 colour plates, 109 black and white photographs and 73 line engravings. A VG copy with some minor spotting to the endpapers, but otherwise clean and bright throughout. The boards are clean and the binding is firm. Minor bumping to spine ends and corners as would be expected. Text pages and plates all very good. Minor discoloration to edges of some plates, but overall a very nice book indeed. The VERY RARE D/W is present but has lost small pieces at top of spine and covers and has some spotting to the verso of the D/W. Otherwise intact and not price clipped. A heavy book so will require extra postage. Scans are available. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
