MARGARET MITCHELL
MACMILLAN. This is a true first edition, first printing of Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, from May, 1936. There is no dust jacket, and the cover has some issues, most notably on the side. But this book has character - and I don't mean it's worn out. It was clearly somebody's favorite book, as they kept newspaper clippings relating to Gone with the Wind. The two images are affixed in the book, but there are several interesting clippings, including one from August 18, 1949 when Margaret Mitchell was fatally hit by a drunk driver. These help to show just how moving this book was, and provide fascinating context for the book and the film. I'd love for this to go to someone who would treasure it like the previous owner did. Domestic shipping will be $15, and will include insurance. [Attributes: First Edition]

Duchamp, Marcel - Breton, André
Éditions G.L.M, 1936. Originalausgabe. Das Werk erschien in einer einmaligen Auflage von 70 nummerierten und vom Verleger Guy Levis-Mano im Druckvermerk signierten Exemplaren auf getöntem „Normandy Vellum". Unser Exemplar trägt die Nummer 43 und stammt aus dem Besitz von Robert Valançay. Eine entsprechende handschriftliche Widmung von André Breton an Valançay befindet sich auf dem Titelblatt und wurde dort zusätzlich noch sowohl von Robert Valançay als auch von Marcel Duchamp voll signiert. Dem Buch wurde eine farbige Reproduktion des Werkes „La bagarre d'Austerlitz" von Marcel Duchamp vor den Text von Breton eingebunden. Robert Valançay war eng mit den Surrealisten befreundet und hat sich als Übersetzer vom Deutschen ins Französische einen Namen gemacht. Er übersetzte Werke u.a. von Hans Arp, Hans Bellmer, Alfred Kubin, Kurt Schwitters und Max Ernst. Der schöne Handeinband wurde von dem Pariser Meisterbuchbinder Georges Gauché gefertigt. Das ohnehin seltene Werk ist mit der Signatur von Marcel Duchamp nahezu unauffindbar.

MOORE, Marianne
(London): The Brendin Publishing Co, 1936. First edition. Limited to 120 copies printed at the Curwen Press. Abbott A5. Signed by Moore on the half-title page. Underneath the title-page imprint Moore has written: "i.e. 'Bryher' (Winifred Ellerman)". Moore has also annotated the acknowledgments page, re-writing it. Scoring through the first 4 words ("Thanks are due to") Moore has made the following changes, in brackets, to the printed acknowledgments: "[T]he Editors of Life and Letters Today, [of] The New Republic, Direction, The New English Weekly, and [of] The Criterion, [are thanked] for permission to print these poems." On the colophon-page Moore has made one final annotation, writing "Bryher" adjacent to George Plank's drawing, thereby identifying the printed initial "B" in the drawing. Of the title poem, Randall Jarrell wrote: "'The Pangolin' may be (Moore's) best poem; it is certainly one of the most moving, honest, and haunting poems that anyone has written in our century" - Poetry and The Age, p.182. 8vo, illustrated by George Plank, original decorated paper boards with printed label on the front cover.

Arnold Walter Lawrence was the youngest brother of T.E.Lawrence and his literary executor. "One of Lawrence's avowed purposes in joining the RAF was to write of the ranks from the inside. He began immediately making notes when he enlisted in 1922. With his dismissal in January 1923, because of unfavourable publicity, the project was set aside, not to be taken up again until he was posted to India in 1927. In March 1928 he sent a clean copy of the revised text to Edward Garnett [who] had copies typed which were circulated to a small circle, among them Air Marshal Trenchard.

Philip Allan, London, 1936. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 9-256, original gray cloth, spine panel stamped in black. First edition. One of three variant bindings, priority, if any, not known.

One of the earliest single author pulp SF story collections, collecting fiction from WEIRD TALES and SF specialty pulps of the late 1920s and early 1930s.

DAWN POWELL Turn, Magic Wheel FIRST EDITION Published by Farrar & Rinehart, New York, 1936. First edition with Farrar seal on copyright page and no mention of later printings. Very good book in very rare, good, restored dust jacket with some paper lining inside the jacket. 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. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition]

KEYNES John Maynard
1936. First edition, first printing. 8vo (220 x 145mm). [2], xii, 403, [1], pp. Original dark blue cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, ruling continued to boards in blind (spine with a 1mm pinprick hole to the lower joint, extremities lightly rubbed). London, Macmillan and Co., Limited. First edition of Keynes' greatest work and surely the most influential text of twentieth-century economics. Prompted by the world wide-slump following 1929, Keynes set upon 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 economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found seriously inadequate and inaccurate. . [Keynes'] programme for national and international official monetary policies [was based on the premise that the] national budget, over and above its function of providing a national income, should be used as a major instrument in planning the national economy. The regulation of the trade-cycle - that is to say the control of booms and slumps, the level of employment, the wage-scale and the flow of investment - must be the responsibility of governments. Lost equilibrium in a national economy could and should be restored by official action and abandoned to laisser faire? (PMM). The grip of Keynesian economics took hold almost immediately, informing aspects of Roosevelt's 'New Deal', the formation of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, as well as many of the policies of the post-war British Labour g … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original green | orange cloth lettered on the spine in gilt, with front cover portrait, in original paper-covered board box with integral wraparound slip. Heritage Press editions, each with eight color plates tipped onto captioned leaves, plus black-and-white chapter headings, all by Norman Rockwell. Both volumes are in fine condition except that their spines are a little dusty. Included is the uncommon original box ("two volumes -- boxed together -- $5"); it is in good-to-very good condition, with some wear on the joints.~Each volume is a presentation copy from Norman Rockwell, inscribed on each half-title with an original pen-and-ink drawing of a dog and reading "To Ted Slocum | Faithfully yours | Norman Rockwell" [with his signature in his characteristic block letters]. On a number of presentation occasions Rockwell did this drawing, which features a white mutt with both ears and one side of its face black, a wagging tail, and with a tin can at the end of a string (the can is similar to the one appearing in Rockwell's sketch on the TOM SAWYER half-title).~For Norman Rockwell, dogs were important elements of both his artwork and his personal life. Realizing the viewer appeal of animals in illustrated narratives, he intentionally placed them as central figures in his compositions; it was typical for him to include them in Saturday Evening Post covers, advertising illustrations and family Christmas cards. Rockwell's dogs accompanied him to the studio, occasionally napping on … [Click Below for Full Description]

KEYNES, John Maynard
Macmillan. First edition. Original blue-green cloth with gilt titles in original grey printed dustwrapper. A fine copy in a very near fine dustwrapper, which is just very slightly tanned to the spine. Regarded as the most influential social science treatise of the century upon which Keynes' "fame as the outstanding economist of his generation must rest" (DNB). Inspired by the world-wide slump of 1929, as an attempt to find new methods for controlling the vagaries of the trade cycle, he "subjects the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny, and found the seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (Printing and the Mind of Man) Although The General Theory threw economists into two violently opposed camps, the book heavily influenced Roosevelt's 'New Deal' of 1936 and the international conference at Bretton Woods eight years later out of which came the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, thus permanently changing the way the world looked at the economy and the role of government in society.

CHURCH, Alonzo.
John Hopkins, Baltimore, Maryland. First edition of the first proof that the Entscheidungsproblem (‘decision problem’) is unsolvable, published seven months before Alan Turing published his own independent proof in his paper ‘On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem.’ Church’s proof was via his ‘lambda-calculus’; Turing’s was via his ‘Turing machines.’ "Church got it right and he got it first By any purely quantifiable evaluation Church’s contribution was at least as important as Turing’s" (Robert Irving Soare in Alan Turing, his work and impact, p. 67). The work of Church and Turing gave a negative answer to the problem posed by David Hilbert in 1928 of whether mathematics is ‘decidable,’ that is, whether there is an effective procedure to determine, for every mathematical statement, whether the statement is provable. Both the lambda-calculus and Turing machines have proved to be of seminal importance, not only for mathematical logic, but also for the development of computer science. Rare in the original printed wrappers."Alonzo Church, in his historic [‘An unsolvable problem in elementary number theory,’ 1936], provides a rigorous formal characterization of what it means to be solvable by means of an algorithm, what has come to be known as Church’s Thesis. This made it possible for him to prove that one specific problem is algorithmically unsolvable. In [this] work, Church specified a finite set of premises that encapsulates this specific problem so faithfully that an algorithm for testing whether a given conclusion follows from those premise … [Click Below for Full Description]

POST, EMIL LEON. - [A SIMULTANEOUS VERSION OF THE "TURING MACHINE"]
[No place], 1936. 8vo. Extract, unbound, unstapled. Pp. 103-105. ¶ The uncommon first printing of Post's seminal paper, in which he, simultaneously with but independently of Turing, describes a logic automaton, which very much resembles the Turing machine. The Universal Turing Machine, which is presented for the first time in Turing's seminal paper in the Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society for 1936 (same year as the present paper), is considered one of the most important innovations in the theory of computation and constitutes the most famous theoretical paper in the history of computing. "Post [in the present paper] suggests a computation scheme by which a "worker" can solve all problems in symbolic logic by performing only machinelike "primitive acts". Remarkably, the instructions given to the "worker" in Post's paper and to a Universal Turing Machine were identical." (A Computer Perspective, p. 125). "The Polish-American mathematician Emil Post made notable contributions to the theory of recursive functions. In the 1930s, indepently of Turing, Post came up with the concept of a logic automaton similar to a Turing machine, which he described in the present paper [the paper offered]. Post's paper was intended to fill a conceptual gap in Alonzo Churchs' paper on "An unsolvable problem of elementary number theory" (Americ. Journ. of Math. 58, 1936). Church's paper had answered in the negative Hilbert's question as to whether a definite method existed for proving the truth or falsity of any mathematical statement (the Entscheidungsproblem), but failed to provide t … [Click Below for Full Description]
