        On Computable Numbers with an Application to the Entscheidungsproblem. A Correction.

      London, Hodgson & Son, 1937. Royal8vo. In a nice recent half cloth binding with gilt lettering to spine. In "Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society. Second Series", Volume 43. Two small stamps to title page. A very nice copy; Binding tight and in excellent condition, Internally very clean and fresh. Pp. 544-46.. First edition of Turing's correction of his 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.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: "Back for three month in the mild Cambridge summer of 1937. Bernays, in Zurich, had perhaps rather annoyingly found some errors [in "Computable Numbers"] in his proof that the Hilbert decision problem, in its precise form, was unsolvable, and these had to be put right by a correction note [The present paper] in the LMS Proceedings" (Hodges, Alan Turing - The Enigma)

        The Trial

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd,, 1937. Translated by Edwin and Willa Muir. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in dark blue. With the dust jacket. A superb copy in the jacket with faded spine. First edition in English, first impression, first published in German in 1925 as Der Process. The Muirs were instrumental in the publication of Kafka in English, and it was at their suggestion the Martin Secker undertook The Castle in 1930. In 1936 Secker went bankrupt and it was Victor Gollancz who issued the Muirs's version of the text that truly introduced the kafkaesque to the anglophone world, and it is their, perhaps questionable, rendering of the opening line, "Someone must have been telling lies about Joseph K …" that is widely considered as one of the greatest first lines in literature. An uncommon book, perhaps as few as 1000 copies having been sold. From the publisher's archive.

        Serenade

      Knopf 1937 - A fine first edition in a brilliant, fine dust jacket, inscribed in 1938 by James M. Cain to actress and dancer Lillian Powell. Lillian Ruth Powell (May 29, 1896 – May 31, 1992) was a Canadian-born American Denishawn- trained dancer who performed in early experimental silent film musicals. She would later teach dance and physical education before embarking on a nearly two decade career in television at an age when many are contemplating retirement. A review for one of her appearances described her as follows: Miss Lillian Powell, formerly of the big-time Eastern circuits, proved not only one of the most exquisite girls in physical charms, but also the most salient example of dancing grace ever seen in a West Coast theater here. Her numbers include an Oriental nautch dance, and later a famous Grecian balloon number, which the gifted young woman danced for Prince George of England recently at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Fairbanks at Beverly Hills, when the son of King George visited Pickfair. Housed in a custom-made slipcase. One may assume that the 46 year old author inscribing this book would have had some interest in the famous dancer six years his junior, although the inscription is politely restrained.

        The Normal Encephalogram. SIGNED BY LEO M. DAVIDOFF AND CORNELIUS D. DYKE.

      Philadelphia: Lea & Febiger 1937. - 224 pp; 149 figs. Original cloth. Front cover unevenly sunned. First Edition. SIGNED BY LEO M. DAVIDOFF: "To our good friend/ Dr. C. A. Elsberg with/ compliments of/ Leo M. Davidoff/ and Cornelius D. Dyke." Inscription by Leo M. Davidoff, with signatures of both Davidoff and Cornelius G. Dyke. In the Preface, Davidoff and Dyke write: "Our thanks are due to Drs. Frederick Tilney, Charles A. Elsberg and Henry A. Riley for their valuable criticism and advice in preparation of the book" (p.7). "One of the greatest contributors to the development of neuroradiology was the neurosurgeon Leo M. Davidoff. . . . He was a surgical resident at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in 1924, and began his neurosurgical training there the following year. 'Davey' was one of Cushing's favorite disciples, and he is considered among the most skilled. After a period of study abroad, Davidoff joined the staff at The Neurological Institute of New York in 1927. He soon befriended and collaborated with Cornelius Dyke, a radiologist who had been trained by Sosman. Sparked by Dyke's interest in neuroradiology, Davidoff became a superb neuroradiologist. Their monograph, The Normal Encephalogram, published in 1937, remains a classic publication in the field of neuroradiology. The follow-up monograph, The Abnormal Pneumoencephalogram was published in 1950 with Bernard Epstein after Dr. Dyke's untimely death. These two classic publications changed the face of neuroradiological interpretation and education in this country. . ." (Dean J. Gobo, in Greenblatt (ed.), A History of Neurosurgery, pp. 231-32).

        Film Fun - August 1937. George Quintana Cover, "Easy to Get Stuck On!"

      Dell Publishing Co., New York 1937 - New York: Dell Publishing Co., 1937. August, 1937 issue. "Good Girl" cover art by George Quintana; contents are illustrated with photographs. Pictorial wrappers, 11 14/" x 8 1/2", 72 pp. Very remarkable condition for a softcover pulp of the era, clean and bright despite it's white cover, and with very little spine wear. Minor rubbing, toning to the pulp-paper contents, which are still quite supple. About near fine, for the genre. Sharp. A very scarce and iconic issue from the pin-up pulp world of the 1930's, the covers of which, when executed by the likes of George Quintana, Enoch Bolles and Earle Bergey, are now referred to as "Good Girl" art. And, that they are. While Bolles covers are scarce enough, Quintana, about which very little else is known but that he painted such covers as these (see scan) is a particularly hard find. Contents are mostly Hollywood studio-produced photos of stars, anchored by those of fetching female stars. Plenty of rumor-mill type text as well, and a few short blurb-reviews of films. Quippy and/or light-hearted editor-inserted captions accompany the photos, mostly cinematic stills. A rare genre classic for both cover and content. LBB-G [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
