        Eighteen Drawings [By Frederick Carter] Engraved on Wood by W.M.R. Quick, Selected by John Gawsworthy.

      1937 - 4to., original printed wrappers. With 18 Japanese paper proof engravings by Frederick Carter (some pasted in, some loose). Wrappers a little sunned and rubbed, a little browning to a few engravings, otherwise a very good set preserved in custom-made cloth flapcase with leather label. First edition of this rare collection of engravings, limited to 20 copies with each proof signed by Frederick Carter. Painter and etcher born in Bradford, Yorkshire. Frederick Carter abandoned an early career as a surveyor and engineer but studied art in Paris, 1904, Antwerp, 1909-10 and London 1908-11, where he learnt his etching techniques under Frank Short. He showed at the RA, ROI, NEAC and was elected ARE in 1912. His artistic life before and after the World War I was centred around the Fitzroy Street area of London, and the Dieppe restaurant in Dean Street. He became a mystic symbolist artist, involved with Aleister Crowley and worked on illustrations for D.H. Lawrence's Apocalypse. He was also a friend of Austin Osmond Spare and helped with his theories of automatic drawing. From 1922 he taught etching at Liverpool School of Art and during the 1930's he abandon printmaking for writing but continued to paint until the late 1950's. His work is in the collections of the BM and V&A. A retrospective exhibition was held at the 20th Century Gallery, Fulham, London, 1998. Richard Grenville Clark's 1998 publication Frederick Carter A.R.G. 1883-1967. A Study of his Etchings catalogues the artist's output and examines each period of his career and techniques. The intricate wood engravings of Frederick Carter have always been considered to be the artist’s greatest works. Their inspired designs brought him three successive gold medals for book illustration in the National Competition, South Kensington - the most prestigious award of his day. Frederick Carter developed an unique, almost calligraphic style of wood engraving - he would begin by drawing his original design in ink directly on to the wood block and then either he, or his assistant W.M.R.Quick, would carve away the surrounding wood, leaving only the lines of the original drawing standing proud to form the printing surface. A great believer in the power of the subconscious, Frederick Carter had experimented with automatic drawing between 1915 and 1924, along with fellow symbolist Austin Osman Spare. He hoped that this might prove to be a means of releasing suppressed associations and images from the subliminal, through which he, like the early alchemists, might discover the essence of life itself. Frederick Carter’s deep interest in alchemy and all aspects of the supernatural and the occult, led him to produce an esoteric symbolism which is apparent throughout his work. Nowhere is this displayed more clearly than in his works for The Dragon of the Alchemists. Frederick Carter provided little or no explanation regarding the significance of his imagery which combines symbols of established religion with those of mysticism and it is likely that he intended the meaning of many of his images to remain shrouded in mystery. Copies are recorded at Oxford, University of California, and the Wolfsonian-Florida International University. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Land, etc. Each page contains graphs, maps, charts, or other illustrations to depict the figures. “Otte Wallish (1903–1977) was an emigre to Israel who established himself as a graphic designer and contributed to the symbolic self-representation of the Jewish state…. In 1936, Wallish set up a design studio in a building in Nahalat Binyamin, Tel Aviv, that had been chosen as a national landmark. His design studio doubled as a kind of front for SHA'I, the Haganah's secret service…. Wallish was responsible for the calligraphy and design of the scroll for Israel's Declaration of Independence. …In addition, Walisch handled the preparation of the exhibit hall in which the State's Independence was announced. …In 1948, too, Wallish took the lead in designing Israel's first postage stamps. He chose a design based on ancient coins, found in archaeological research on the First Jewish-Roman War and the Bar Kochba Revolt…. Wallish continued to be a leading designer of Israeli stamps…. Israel's first coins were designed from a proposal submitted by Israel Numismatic Society proposal, put together with Leo Kadman, Hanan Pavel, and Wallish. He also designed paper currency for Israel…. Over the years, Wallish also designed posters. For instance, one poster shows the Jewish immigration by ship and another promotes the ZIM shipping line. His posters have been featured in exhibition and the 1997 ‘Selling Zionism' exhibit at the Israel Museum. In 2006, a Wallish poster was shown at ‘The New Hebrews: 100 Years of Art in Israel' exhibit, Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin…. His posters are displayed as well at the Central Zionist Archives and the Tel Aviv Museum” (Wikipedia 2015) . Subjects: Keren Hayesod; Jewish National Fund; United Israel Appeal.

In his early thirties in 1903, he had already spent ten years working in the library of the Daheryé which, at the time of the Umayyad Caliphs, had been the largest in Damascus. In 1936, he founded a bi-annual journal, Al al-Charquiyat Khizanat whose purpose was the study of literature and Oriental history. The review was published in Harissa in Lebanon while it was put together in Cimiez, a suburb of Nice in France. Habib Zayat published original articles found in libraries in which he worked.

[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]
