        A formal theorem in Church's theory of types. [with:] The use of dots as brackets in Church's system.

      The Association for Symbolic Logic, 1942. First edition, the very rare offprint issues, and with a fine provenance, of Turing's papers on Church's type theory. "Church's type theory is a formal logical language which includes first-order logic, but is more expressive in a practical sense. It is used, with some modifications and enhancements, in most modern applications of type theory. It is particularly well suited to the formalization of mathematics and other disciplines and to specifying and verifying hardware and software" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Offprints of Turing's papers are extremely rare in institutional holdings, and even more so in commerce. Copies of both offprints are in the Turing Archive at King's College, Cambridge, and also among those collected by Max Newman (now at Bletchley Park). We are not aware of any other copies having appeared in commerce. Turing's interest in logic and computation began when he attended the lectures of Max Newman at Cambridge in 1935. This led, two years later, to the publication of his great work On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem, which included the introduction of the 'universal Turing machine.' Turing spent the years1937-1939 at Princeton, where he completed his PhD under the supervision of Alonzo Church. From the latter part of 1939, Turing was engaged in war work at Bletchley Park. 'Before the war my work was in logic and my hobby was cryptanalysis,' he once said, 'and now it is the other way round.' He had to thank Newman for stimulating his thoughts on this 'hobby' of mathematical logic, for they corresponded in 1940 and 1941, in which latter year Newman again gave Cambridge lectures on Foundations of Mathematics. "Most of Alan's efforts were directed towards a new formulation of the theory of types. Russell had regarded types as rather a nuisance, adopted faute de mieux in order to save Frege's set theory. Other logicians had felt that a hierarchy of logical categories was really quite a natural idea, and that it was the attempt to lump together every conceivable entity into 'sets' that was strange. Alan inclined to the latter view. He would prefer a theory with the way in which mathematicians actually thought, and which worked in a practical way. He also wanted to see mathematical logic used to make the work of mathematicians more rigorous... His own efforts to bridge the gap began with an attempt 'to put the theory of type into a form in which it can be used by the mathematician-in-the-street without having to study mathematical logic, much less use it... The type principle is effectively taken care of in ordinary language by the fact that there are nouns as well as adjectives. We can make the statement 'All horses are four-legged', which can be verified by examination of every horse, at any rate if there are only a finite number of them. If however we try to use words like 'thing' or 'thing whatever' trouble begins. Suppose we understand 'thing' to include everything whatever, books, cats, men, women, thoughts, functions of men with cats as values, numbers, matrices, classes of classes, procedures, propositions... Under these circumstances what can be made of the statement 'All things are not prime multiples of 6'... What do we mean by it? Under no circumstances is the number of things to be examined finite. It may be that some meaning can be given to statements of this kind, but for the present we do not know of any. In effect then the theory of types requires us to refrain from the use of such nouns as 'thing', 'object', etc., which are intended to convey the idea of 'anything whatever'. "The technical work of separating mathematical 'nouns' from 'adjectives' was based upon that of Church, whose lectures he had followed at Princeton, and who published a description of his type theory in 1940. Part of Alan's work was done in collaboration with Newman through correspondence; their joint paper [i.e. I] being received at Princeton on 9 May 1941. It must have crossed the Atlantic just as the München was captured. Alan produced a further paper of a highly technical nature, The use of dots as brackets in Church's system, and submitted it just a year later" (Hodges, pp. 215-6). [Paper II] "shows once again Turing's ability to reason about important issues in computer science before there were digital computers to reason about. In this case, Turing essentially studies an important aspect of programming languages, a syntax for trees... In short, Turing's dots gave him a way to think about the order of operations in a structure that was more intuitive to him, to prepare him for planned further work on Church's ?-calculus" (Lance Fortnow, in Alan Turing: his work and impact, pp. 227-8). Turing states that he intended to make use of this notation in two forthcoming papers, Some theorems about Church's systems and The theory of virtual types. These never appeared, although manuscripts with similar titles exist in the Turing Archive (AMT/C/3-6). Although there are no ownership marks, these offprints are from the working library of Robin Gandy. "[Gandy's] interest in [mathematical logic] commenced through his wartime acquaintance with Alan Turing as far back as 1944. His twin interests in the foundations of science and mathematics were fostered by Turing. These interests moulded a career which always seemed larger than his publication list, although that grew in diversity with the years to include some seminal papers. Initially, he read widely and published little, but around 1960 he started to produce the major results which made him an international figure in the theory of abstract recursion and in effective, descriptive set theory. There were also major conceptual innovations such as the theory of inductive definitions, and a plethora of ingenious intricate proofs in different corners of the subject. He wrote papers on many areas of logic and was much in demand as a reviewer of books on the foundations of mathematics and science. He remained active and productive and was a familiar figure at international conferences until his sad and unexpected death (from an aortic rupture) on November 20th, 1995. "He was born on September 22nd, 1919, in Peppard, Oxfordshire, where his father, Thomas Gandy, was in general practice. His mother Ida Gandy earned a reputation for a sequence of books based on her early life in Wiltshire. Educated at Abbotsholme, a progressive public school, he went on to join that special elite at King's College, Cambridge, intellectual home of such famous names as E. M. Forster the novelist, J. Maynard Keynes the economist - and Alan Turing. He met Turing at a party in 1940 (Gandy's graduation year) but their early wartime careers were separate. Gandy was commissioned in the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers and became an expert on military radio and radar, whilst Turing joined the cryptanalysts at Bletchley Park. They were brought together at Hanslope Park in 1944 to work on a speech decipherment system, christened 'Delilah' at Gandy's suggestion because it was intended to be a 'deceiver of men'. "Their friendship continued after the war, back at King's College where Turing had resumed his fellowship. Gandy took Part III of the Mathematical Tripos with distinction, then began studying for a PhD under Turing's supervision; his successful thesis on the logical foundation of physics (On axiomatic systems in mathematics and theories in physics) was presented in 1953 and can now be seen as a bridge between his wartime expertise and later career. When Turing died in 1954 he left his mathematical books and papers to Gandy, who, in 1963, took over from Max Newman the task of editing the papers for publication" (Moschovakis & Yates, pp. 367-8). Andrew Hodges, Alan Turing: The Enigma, 1983; Yiannis Moschovakis & Mike Yates, 'In Memoriam: Robin Oliver Gandy 1919-1995', Bulletin of Symbolic Logic, Vol. 2, 1996, pp. 367-370.

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Co., 1942. Cloth backed marbled boards, t.e.g. Endsheets discolored from the binding glue utilized, a few foxmarks at fore-edge, else near fine. Second separate American printing, following the 1934 U.S. copyright printing, and the text's inclusion in the Sussex edition and the Burwash edition. This is one of only ten copies privately printed on handmade paper for presentation by the publisher. Kipling's text is preceded by a prefatory letter, "My dear Mr. President:," outlining the background of the text, by Alexander Woolcott, signed in type, noting "Nelson Doubleday has now put it into type for one of the many idle hours which must hang heavy on your hands these days." If the dedication to "Mr. President" suggests that this highly limited edition was undertaken, in part, for presentation to FDR, the notion of FDR having "many idle hours" must be described as ironic. While not the first appearance of the text in book form, it is much less common than the copyright printing (75 copies), and as a production of Kipling's authorized U.S. publisher, it must enjoy some bibliographic merit. Not in Stewart. From the Nelson Doubleday collection sale. RICHARDS A419n.

        The Myth of Sisyphus

      Gallimard, Paris 1942 - First edition, "service de presse" review copy. Original wrappers and rare such. When this book does turn up, it's usually been rebound. One of Camus's three giant works (L'Etranger and La Peste). An excellent copy - some spots of rubbing, edge spots, bit of light wear else a fine, rare copy. A consequential book of the 20th century and a personal favorite.********* Camus believes that the world is absurd, that we are born by chance, live by encounter, and die by accident. Although we crave happiness on earth and immortality after death, the disproportion between desire and fulfillment defines the absurd. An absurd world is a world without necessity, without purpose, and without essence. Whatever meaning it has, we ourselves have to provide it. Existentialists believe that, because there is no a priori morality, men’s choices and actions fill the void that was left by the disappearance of God. However, says Camus, man’s forlornness should not be construed as a source of despair. On the contrary, God’s death should be viewed not as tragedy but as a liberation, and it is this newly found freedom that gives men and women the strength to invent themselves. In an absurd world all choices are possible, even suicide.(Stoltzfus) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Speeches...

      London: Oxford University Press, Issued under the Auspices of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, , 1942. April 1922 ? August 1939. An English Translation of Representative Passages arranged under Subjects and edited by Norman H. Baynes. 2 volumes, octavo. Original black buckram, title gilt to spines. With the dust jackets. Endpapers foxed as often, cloth slightly spotted, but overall very good in slightly rubbed and soiled jackets, tanned at the spines and with some splits and chips, but largely complete. First edition. Distinctly uncommon, particularly in the jackets. "It must never be forgotten that Germany under National Socialism has been a marooned area. By a propaganda based upon a recognition of the subtle and compelling force of the constant repetition of a few simple ideas Hitler, as orator, has sought to constrain the German people to fuse its will with his. It is well that those who detest the system should yet realise with what persuasiveness National Socialism can be presented..." (from Lord Astor's foreword). Professor Baynes was the recently retired professor of Byzantine studies at University College who spent the war years working in the foreign research and press service: "From 1939 to 1945 he used his historical training in the field of modern German history and produced two large, fully annotated volumes of Hitler's pre-war speeches (1942). The depth of his involvement in the national struggle was demonstrated by his choice of subject for his Romanes lecture in Oxford in June 1942: 'Intellectual liberty and totalitarian claims'; its delivery was said to have been a brilliant caricature of the oratory of the Führer on whose speeches he had been working" (ODNB).

        The Hobbit, or There and Back Again

      London: The Childrens Book Club, 1942. 1st Edition, Hobbits, Lord of the Rings. Original Cloth. Very Good/Facsimile Only. J.R.R. Tolkien. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. One of 3000 copies of the 1942, 1st Edition 3rd impression, printed for the Children's Book Club of the bookseller Foyles, from the Allen & Unwin plates. Bound in yellow, gilt-stamped cloth over boards, with a dust-jacket (which Tolkien thought hideous) in orange and white, featuring a cartoon of a dandified hobbit smoking a pipe. Tolkien commented, "Surely the paper wasted on that hideous dust-cover could have been better used." A scarce and desirable copy for the collector. The book is in Very Good condition.

The dustjacket is a facsimile, provided to help protect this scarce issue. A very hard to find original issue of a very scarce book, housed in a Custom Clamshell Case that reflects the original dustjacket spine, with the boards covered in a lovely marbled paper featuring the bright orange of the dustjacket, to protect and show this very scarce book.

        Der Weg zum deutschen Sieg

      Vollständige Ausgabe im Original Verlagseinband (Steifumschlag / Broschur / Kartoneinband 8vo im Format 21 x 15 cm) mit farbig illustriertem Deckeltitel (Umschlagzeichnung: Arno Krause/Berlin), 30 Seiten. Aus dem Inhalt: Die große Wende - Die bolschewistische Winteroffensive 1942/43 - Der anglo-amerikanische Terror - Die Kämpfe in Nordafrika und Tunesien - Der U-Boot-Krieg und die Schlacht auf den Ozeanen - Die moralische Front des deutschen Volkes und der totale Krieg - Nur die Tat bringt den Erfolg, und der Erfolg allein beweist die Richtigkeit einer Annahme: Leistungsbereitschaft und Leistungssteigerung - Der deutsche Genius triumphiert. - Mit zeittypischen Ausführungen wie z.B.: "Das Schicksal machte uns den Kampf immer härter. Mit den unvorstellbar grausamen Methoden bolschewistischer Kriegführung konnte kein zivilisierter Mensch rechnen. Alles das zusammen fügt uns dann gegen Ende 1942 und zu Beginn des Jahres 1943 schwere Schläge zu, d i en u re i nA d o l fH i t l e rp a r i e r e nk o n n t e sie kamen uns Deutschen in der großen Mehrzahl überraschend. Gewiss, wir Nationalsozialisten wussten, daß der Kampf mit den Juden hart auf hart geht, daß nur äußerste Verbissenheit und Zähigkeit gegenüber Juda den Sieg davontragen. Wir hatten es zu oft in heißen Saalschlachten vor der Machtübernahme erlebt, wie gemein, hinterhältig und hartnäckig der Jude sein kann..." Die Schrift schließt mit den Worten: "... im vierten Kriegsjahr die große Wende zum endgültigen Sieg Deutschlands vollzogen. Wenn der Sieg greifbar nahe ist, ist es kein Kunststück mehr, von einer großen Wende zu reden, aber wenn die Gegner scheinbare Erfolge erzielt haben und in hysterisches Triumphgeheul verfallen, dann bedarf es der Überlegungen des kühlen und bloßen Verstandes, um die tatsächlichen Chancen richtig werten zu können. Das habe ich durch meine Ausführungen klarzulegen versucht, das habe ich auch in meiner ganzen Arbeit während des Krieges - sowohl als Reichsorganisationsleiter der NSDAP. als auch als Leiter der Deutschen Arbeitsfront - dem deutschen Menschen, insonderheit dem deutschen Arbeiter, immer wieder vor Augen gehalten.

      1942. A collection of photographs, letters, telegrams, newspaper clippings, and other material documenting the life of Myron Kendall Strickland of Huron, South Dakota, presumably assembled by his mother, Muriel Strickland. His original birth certificate accompanies more than 50 photographs that show his growth from infancy to adolescence. The program for and an invitation to his high school graduation are also present, as are an invitation to and numerous photos of his wedding to Phyllis Stoller of Burbank, California on May 1, 1942. Shortly thereafter, Strickland left his position at the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation and enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard. A few holographic letters from boot camp preceed 19 photographs of Strickland in uniform. The remainder of the scrapbook contains material concerning Strickland's tragic death in the USS Serpens explosion at Guadalcanal on January 29, 1945.Strickland was serving as a radioman aboard the Serpens, a Liberty ship tasked with carrying cargo and rolling stock between ports and anchoranges in the South Pacific. Late in the evening on January 29, 1945, the vessel was anchored off Lunga Beach. The commanding officer and seven others were ashore. The remaining 198 members of the crew and 57 members of an Army stevedore unit were on board, loading depth charges into her holds. During the loading, the Serpens exploded. The force of the explosion was so great that it killed an Army soldier who was ashore. After the explosion, only the bow of the ship was visible; the rest had disintegrated. Only two sailors aboard survived the incident. The cause of the explosion was initially attributed to enemy action but was never completely determined. It remains the largest single disaster ever suffered by the U.S. Coast Guard.The scrapbook includes several newspaper clippings; a March 3, 1945 telegram from Rear Admiral L.T. Chalker, Acting Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard, who states that the press reports are misleading and that there is insufficient evidence to declare Strickland killed in action; copies of letters from C.A. Anderson, Commander of the U.S. Coast Guard, to Strickland's wife - the first establishes that he is missing in action and attributes the explostion to an enemy torpedo, the second expresses condolences; other letters of condolence; the program for his memorial service in Burbank, California; telegrams and official notices for reinterment of Strickland and his fellow servicemen at Arlington Cemetary on June 16, 1949; photographs and clippings of the reinterment ceremony and the Serpens memorial at Arlington; and three of the service medals posthumously awarded to Strickland.The material is either pasted or mounted with photo corners on the brown paper leaves, which are toned and a bit brittle. Housed in a decorative cream buckram binding, which is bound with a cream string tie.
