        Applications aux jeux de hasard. Traité du calcul des probabilities et de ses applications, Tome IV, Applications diverse et conclusion, fascicule II. Rédigé par Jean Ville.

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1938. - xi, 122 pp; ads. Original printed wrappers. Near Fine. 'The first elementary (non-topological) proof of the minimax theorem, using convexity arguments and the concept of a supporting hyperplane, is due to Jean Ville in a 1938 contribution [pp. 105-13] to Borel's Traité du calcul des probabilities et de ses applications. Ville (1938) also gave the first proof of the minimax theorem for the case of a continuum of possible pure strategies. The proof of the minimax theorem in von Neumann and Morgenstern [The Theory of Games and Economic Behavior 1944] is a non-topological one, based on the proof in Ville (1938). . .' (Dimand and Dimand, The History of Game Theory, Volume 1, p. 130). 'The portion on games of chance compiled by Ville from Borel's lectures (Tome IV, fascicule II) is notably easy to read and did not assume that probabilistic reasoning was well known even to mathematicians. Borel distinguished games of pure chance from 'psychological games' whose result depends on the ability or behaviour of the players. He predicted that methods stemming from psychological games would be useful in analyzing economic questions. Throughout the book, Borel and Ville stressed the importance of who has what information when' (ibid., pp. 133-34; also see pp. 134-38). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

He was rumoured to have been a bisexual and was alleged to have had relationships with Ivor Novello, Merle Oberon, and actress Tallulah Bankhead. The rumours include affairs with Edwina Mountbatten who encouraged him to come to England in 1927 to perform in a Rodgers and Hart musical He soon became the darling of society and the population in general. "Hutch" was a favourite singer of the then Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII). He was regularly heard on air with the BBC. One of his greatest hits was "These Foolish Things". He was a much-loved wartime entertainer.

        Analysen Van AVRO's Wereld-Schaak-Tournooi

      Algemeene Vereeniging Radio 1938 - 146 pages with diagrams, tables and 8 plates of the participants. Octavo (8 7/8" x 6"). Issued in red boards with a black and white pictorial cover. [signed by Max Euwe] Dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the Max Euwe Chess Club of Amsterdam laid on front paste down. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5574) First edition. The A.V.R.O. 1938 was a double-round tournament held in November 1938 under the sponsorship of the Dutch wireless company, Algemene Verenigde Radio Omroep. The participants, Alekhine, Botvinnik, Capablanca, Euwe, Fine, Flohr, Keres and Reshevsky, included the reigning World Champion and all his potential challengers. The sponsors intended the event to be regarded as an unofficial Candidates tournament, and the winner (or the runner-up in the case of a victory by Alekhine) was promised financial backing for a World Championship match. For a tournament of such importance, the playing conditions were appalling. The players traveled through Holland, ten venues in different towns were used, and on playing days the competitors were often forced to miss dinner. These circumstances naturally favored the younger grandmasters at the expense of Alekhine and Capablanca. The final scores were: Keres and Fine 8 1/2, Botvinnik 7 1/2, Alekhine, Reshevsky and Euwe 7, Capablanca 6, Flohr 4 1/2. The tie for 1st place was broken in favor of Keres, who had the superior Sonneborn-Berger rating. The projected match between Alekhine and Keres did not take place, since Alekhine had already contracted to defend his title first against Flohr, who was the official FIDE World Championship challenger. Alekhine did promise to play a subsequent match against Keres if he retained the title, but the start of the Second World War terminated all negations. One of the best, possibly the best of the tournament was Bottvinnik's game v Capablanca [Golombek: p20]. Condition Corners bumped and rubbed, sunning to heal edges. A very good copy issued without a dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Plat of the Brewery, and Bottling House Premises of the Boston Beer Company

      Boston, 1938. Nine architectural plans for the Boston Beer Company Brewery and Bottling House, 38.5 x 50 cm each. Printed on engineering vellum, recto only. The nine numbered plats depict an overview (with cross streets and geographical context), basement through fifth floor plans, and two cross sections. Indicating dimensions and material types, the plans give a full picture of a 19th century brewery and bottling house operation. Plan includes layout for bottling house machines (including soaker and washer, pasteuriser, and [Norton] Oslund labeler), ale fermentation cellar, malt and yeast storage, cooper's shop, water tower for ammonia condensers, brewmaster's office, wort cooler room, among many other areas. The Boston Beer Company was founded in 1828 by Gamaliel Bradford, Nathan Rice, Benjamin Thaxter, and Elijah Loring; it was chartered and incorporated by an act of the Massachusetts Legislature. The Boston Beer Company, on Second Street in South Boston, was in operation until 1957. The plans in this collection were approved in April 1938, just five years after the ratification of the Twenty-first Amendment and during a period of rapid growth in beer production. Boston, with a total of thirty-one breweries, was distinguished as the city with the highest number of breweries, per capita, in the United States. In 1985, Jim Koch unveiled Samual Adams beer and revived the Boston Beer Company name as among the first wave of breweries to characterize the modern American craft renaissance. The architectural firm that drew the plans is unnamed, but plans are signed by draftsman and others. Some edgewear, creasing, and discoloration throughout the plans, but otherwise very good. Several plans annotated with color-coded pencil marks.

        American Photographs (in Dustjacket)

      New York: The Museum of Modern Art, 1938. Cloth. Very Good +/Good. The 1938 1st edition of this seminal title in American documentary photography. A very solid copy but with a Good only dustjacket, 10% of which is missing. The book itself is tight, clean and VG+, with just a touch of light soiling at the rear panel's bottom-edge. The dustjacket though has some issues: a sizeable section of the front flap-fold is gone and both the front and rear flaps are detached and laid-in. This is an ideal "starter" copy of the original printing, moderately priced in any kind of dustjacket and still somewhat presentable. Octavo, 5,000 copies issued. Evans's crisp, epoch-defining black-and-white photos along the rectos.
