[Vol. 43, part 7 :] Pp. 481-213. First edition of Turing's landmark work "On Computable Numbers"; "undoubtedly the most famous theoretical paper in the history of computing. It is a mathematical description of what Turing called a universal machine - an imaginary computing device designed to replicate the mathematical "states of mind" and symbol-manipulating abilities of a human computer." The work initiated mechanical and electronic methods of computing and must be considered one of the most important contributions to the invention of the computer. He linked Kleene's recursive functions, Church's lambda-definable functions and his own computable functions and proved them to be identical.In the appendix of his milestone-paper "On Computable Numbers" from 1936, Turing gave a short outline of a method for proving that his notion of computability is equivalent with Alonzo Church's notion of lambda-definabilty. It was not until the present article, however, that it was proved that Steven Kleene's general recursive functions, Church's lambda-definable functions and Turing's computable functions were all identical. nhKleene had already proved that every general recursive function is lambda-definable, so by showing that computability follows from lambda-definability and that general recursiveness follows from computability, Turing had ended the circle, which was a primary reason for its acceptance as a notion of "effective calculable" demanded by Hilbert's Entscheidungsproblem."The purpose of the present paper is to show that the computable functions introduced by the author (in "On computable numbers") are identical with the lambda-definable functions of Church and the general recursive functions due to Herbrand and Gödel and developed by Kleene." Turing wrote this paper while at Princeton studying with Church."(Hook and Norman No. 395)Origins of Cyberspace 394Tomash and Williams T61, T62

        The Commerce Clause under Marshall, Taney and Waite.

      Chapel Hill: The University of North Carolina Press, 1937 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine and front board lettered in silver, with the dust jacket. Dust jacket rubbed along joints with slight chipping to top and bottom edges, pale damp mark to foot of front panel and joint of rear panel, and a little soiling; a very good copy with a fine presentation inscription. Lengthy presentation inscription dated 18 December 1936 to front free endpaper. First edition of Frankfurter's contribution to the Weil lectures on American citizenship, "a clear exposition of the various interpretations of the commerce clause - the power conferred upon Congress 'to regulate commerce with foreign nations and among the several states - under three great chief justices." (jacket). A Harvard professor of law from 1914-39, Frankfurter was "a strong advocate of civil liberties but favoured judicial self-restraint and non-intervention by the court in political issues." (Walker, the Oxford companion to Law, p. 488). The inscription, probably for Robert H. Jackson, assistant attorney general heading the Tax Division of the Department of Justice in 1936, from 1937-1941 attorney general, and one of Frankfurter's closest friends, reads "Dear Bob, This is not a Roland for an Oliver - but Law, at least in my poor hands, is only on the river of Philosophy. But 'we live by symbols', and this brings you my gay devotion & ardent hopes. Yrs Felix." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        The High Commissioners in London for the Dominions and for India and Ambassadors to the Court of St James. Portraits specially taken for Publication in the 'Daily Telegraph' by J. Dixon-Scott. Coronation Year 1937

      'Daily Telegraph', London 1937 - Large oblong octavo (205 x 300 mm), [iv] (title leaf, index of High Commissioners, both versos blank), [ii] (index of Ambassadors) pages plus 25 mounted gelatin silver portrait photographs (each approximately 150 x 200 mm). A photograph album in full light blue calf, lettered in gilt on the front cover; leather a little marked, sunned and scuffed, with the front top edge a little abraded in three spots; uncut deckle edges a little dusty or sunned, with a few trifling signs of handling; in very good condition, with the photographs in fine condition (albeit with uniform silvering-out around the thin unprinted borders). The High Commissioners are: The Honourable Vincent Massey, Canada; The Right Honourable Stanley Bruce, Commonwealth of Australia; W.J. Jordan, New Zealand; C.T. Te Water, Union of South Africa; J.W. Dulanty, Irish Free State; and Sir Firoz Khan Noon, India. The Ambassadors are: Dr Paul Regis de Oliveira, Brazil; Baron de Cartier de Marchienne, Belgium; Dr Manuel E. Malbran, Argentine; Count Grandi, Italy; Ivan Maisky, Soviet Union; Robert Worth Bingham, USA; Charles Corbin, France; Bey Fethi Okyar, Turkey; Count Edouard Raczynski, Poland; Quo Tai-Chi, China; Augustin Edwards, Chile; Shigeru Yoshida, Japan; Pablo de Azcarate, Spain; [Joachim] von Ribbentrop, Germany; Dr Armindo Monteiro, Portugal; and Dr Hafez Afifi Pasha, Egypt. 'In the late 1920s, the photographer John Dixon-Scott became concerned at the way the rural and urban environment of Britain was changing. He drove around the country with his camera intending to preserve through his pictures what he saw as a vanishing landscape, in a photographic project that took him years. The result was a collection of over 14,000 images which in 1946 he sold to the Central Office of Information, the British government's communications agency. Eventually these prints passed into the collections of The National Archives' (NA website). This commissioned album of portraits is unrepresentative of his life's work, which is surely our loss. The title of the album and the subjects in this series, worthy men all, do not, at first glance, suggest that a second glance is called for. But John Dixon-Scott has eschewed the time-honoured formality of the traditional head-and-shoulders treatment, and placed his men of mark in their offices or studies. The results are sublime - they are as much portraits of national character as of individuals. We'll save ourselves the trouble of writing the next thousand words by directing you to look at just two of the results, that of The Right Honourable Stanley Bruce of the Commonwealth of Australia (and her former Prime Minister), and Count Grandi of Italy.

        Vive la Revolution Chinoise! - Chinese Communist Revolution Poster

      1937. (MAO ZEDONG). Vive la Revolution Chinoise! [French poster supporting the Chinese Communist Revolution]. Paris: Imprimerie S.I.M., [1937]. Poster (30-1/2 by 22 inches), printed on recto in red and black. $1500.Large French poster advertising a 1937 meeting to support the Chinese Communist Revolution, featuring the iconic image of Mao during the Long March of 1934-35.The poster, advertising a meeting for Tuesday, September 21 at 8:30, 1937, includes Mao's famous quote: ""The people, and the people alone, are the motive force in the making of world history."" The Communist Party and other left-leaning parties rose to power in France in the 1930s, culminating with the Popular Front winning the general election in May 1936—Léon Blum became the first Socialist Prime Minister of France as well as the first Jew to hold that office. The international focus of Communism is clear from this poster, which calls for a meeting in Paris to discuss and support the Chinese Communist Revolution, which had recently experienced a major setback: the Long March, which was only later heralded as a victory and a crucial formative period for Mao and his fellow communists. More pressing concerns would soon overtake both the Chinese Communist Party and the Kuomintang (the Chinese Nationalists), when the Japanese launched their full-scale invasion of China, leading to the capture of the Chinese capital Nanking by the end of 1937, and forcing the CCP and the Kuomintang into an uneasy alliance to resist the invaders. By the time of this poster's printing, the incredible events of the Long March would have highlighted Mao's leadership and his fellow marchers' legendary perseverance, while news of the recent Japanese aggression would certainly have been reaching France as well. Text in French. Faint fold lines and creases, pinholes in corners. An extremely good copy, scarce.
