        Ta S'eu. Dai Gaku. Studio Integrale.

      Rapallo: Scuola Tipografica Orfanotrofio Emiliani,, 1942. Octavo. Original printed wrappers, stapled at the fold. Bound back to front, in the Chinese manner. Tiny chip and small smudge mark to the top edge of front wrapper, otherwise fine. First edition, first printing, inscribed on the title page, "Sandoz ?Vegh, pour le guidez et ses enfants, Ezra Pound, 28 Mars, 1959". Pound & Lucini's Italian translations of the poems of Confucius appear for the first time in this fragile production, printed in Rapallo early in 1942 in an edition of unknown number. In a letter to Mrs Virgil Jordan on 3 November 1941, Pound commented on the translation, "I am making a real translation of Confucius' Ta S'eu (wrongly spelled Ta Hio, by the frogs whom I followed in earlier edtns ... Have just finished the Italian draft and a blooke, called Luchini, is supposed to put it into real Italian." The Italian translation was printed separately, without the original Chinese text as here, in Testamento di Confucio, 1944. Pound had drafted an earlier English version, though again printed without the Chinese text in Ta Hio, The Great Learning (1928). Inscribed copies are rare; we can find no other copy recorded at auction, and have never handled another.

        Typed Letter Signed on behalf of George Cukor, 4to on personal printed stationery, n.p., January 16, 1943

      1942. Tracy writes a letter of recommendation for his friend and film director, George Cukor. The actor recommends the director to make war propaganda films. In 1942, Cukor enlisted in the Army Signal Corps. Cukor was 43 at that time which might the reason for Tracy writing to Colonel Melvin Gillette, of the Signal Corps Photographic Center. Cukor directed training and propaganda films for a year after which he honorably discharged because of his age. Tracy and Cukor had worked together on a number of films before and after World War II. Tracy lists some of Cukor's films as a way of showing Cukor's accomplishments. He describes Cukor as, "a man of great intellectual and artistic experience, has a great sense of humor and an enormously quick mind, which seems to me to add materially to his potentialities as an officer. He is a very well educated man...has boundless energy...." Tracy notes in his final paragraph that Cukor understands "human nature." He signs above his typed name, "Spencer Tracy."

Rare complete edition of the Japanese translation of this contemporaryical published in Canton from 1832 to 1851 for the use of Protestant missionaries working in southeast Asia. Bindings editor in full burgundy cloth, spine smooth, cased. Designed by Elijah Coleman Bridgman, the first American Protestant missionary in China and appointed editor of the newspaper until his departure for Shanghai in 1847, the repository will then be directed by James Granger Bridgman and Samuel Wells Williams.

        Romans nouveaux. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      S.n. (Journal des débats). Autograph manuscript of the author of 2 and a half pages in-4 published in the issue dated 23 December 1942 of the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Literary review published on the occasion of the publication of several new novels, including "The sun rises" Marius Grout. Full typescript is attached. Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of the intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on recently published books. In a half-page newspaper (about seven pages in-8), the young author of "Thomas the Obscure" his first steps in the field of literary criticism and inaugurates a theoretical work that develop later Many in these essays, "The Share of fire" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Writing disaster." From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrates a sharp analysis far beyond the current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classical and modern writers of the first order and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking which will mark the second half of the twentieth. Transformed by writing and by war, Blanchot breaks, over a thought exerted "on behalf of the other," with violent maurassiennes certainties of his youth. Not without paradox, then it transforms literary criticism philosophical act of intellectual resistance to barbarism at the heart of an "openly marechalist" newspaper: "Burning a book, write, are the two acts between culture which registered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943). In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer his own rhetoric, delivered more to echo the impossible or the lure of extinction. (...) Not without contradictions or step aside, and the certainty of a feverish work begins (... ) these articles reveal the genealogy of a critic who has transformed during the chronicle necessity of thought.

        JUNGLE BOOK, THE (1942)

      United Artists / Alexander Korda Films 1942 - Group of sixty (60) vintage original stills as described. Sabu, Joseph Calleia, John Qualen, Frank Puglia, Rosemary DeCamp, Patricia O' Rourke., dir: Zoltan Korda; Alexander Korda Films, United Artists. Adapted by Laurence Stallings from the Rudyard Kipling novel. The movie was filmed in Hollywood during a period when the Korda brothers set up production outside of their native London due to World War II. Stallings took the main story from Kipling's book and focused on Mowgli, the boy born and raised in the jungle by the animals, his acclimation to the life of man when he is brought into their village and how his relationship with the jungle creatures saves lives when the village is destroyed by fire. The greed of human nature was a strong theme in this version as well. Made as an epic Technicolor adventure, the sets (represented in several images in this grouping) were built on the soundstages and backlot of the Hollywood Center Studios (though second unit work was done on location and shot by Andre De Toth) and tame animals from area zoos (supplemented by "animatronics" of the day) were employed. The thoughts of the animals were presented effectively in voice-overs. The fantasy was greatly enhanced by the music score of Miklos Rozsa and the film has the distinction of being the very first non-musical film to have a commercial recording made of its soundtrack. There were four Academy Award nominations, including that for the score, special effects, color cinematography and color art direction. NUMBERED IMAGES - Two (2) 14 x 11" (36 x 28 cm.) double weight photos, each with descriptive text in bottom, numbered #8 and 12. Both with marginal chipping, one with a diagonal tear (mended on verso), and some marginal rubbing and light staining - Eight (8) 10 x 8" (25 x 20 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin prints scene stills: A. K. 57900- 22, 36, 55, 74, 90, 94, 175, 179 (image is full frame of oversized still 8). - Four (4) 10 x 8" (25 x 20 cm.) various publicity, behind-the-scenes stills: Sabu 1940-K101-P2 (Portrait), A.K. 5700-S-79 (Sabu with Tiger), A.K. 57900-P-24- (Crew films in village, paper blurb and photo by Coburn on verso), Spec-33 (Sabu in turban with chimp actor). UN-NUMBERED IMAGES - Five (5) 10 x 8" (25 x 20 cm.)" black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print images depicting Sabu as Mowgli and Rosemary De Camp as Messua (his adoptive human mother) during sequence of Mowgli coming to man's village and being taught various tasks. - Fourteen (14) 9 ½ x 7" (23 x 17 cm) black-and-white single weight glossy borderless silver gelatin print images. This group includes portrait images of Sabu as Mowgli (one of which is marked for retouching), images of him riding and directing the elephants in the jungle, exploring the jungle with adoptive sister Mahala (Patricia O'Rourke), also includes character actor Joseph Calleia as Buldeo in character and in two make up tests. - Ten (10) 10 x 8" (25 x 20 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print images of sets. This grouping highlights the spectacular and intricately designed and built jungle village, jungle and river sets constructed for the film, which would be nominated for an Academy Award. - Seventeen (17) 5 x 4" (12 x 10 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print images. Images include iconic still of Sabu as Mowgli riding elephant through the jungle ("Theme shot of pic" is handwritten on verso), various dramatic close shots of Sabu as Mowgli, close shots of Patricia O'Rourke as Mahala, various real jungle animals on the set, including Elephants., tiger and hyena, those of the animatronic alligator and a behind-the-scenes image filming one of the river sequences with Sabu and O'Rourke. Images display use, including slight creases in blank white margins and a few pin holes in several. Overall excellent condition. Nice archive of a classic film. VERY GOOD-FINE.

        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. Two offprints on Church's type theory. I. (with M. H. A. Newman) 'A formal theorem in Church's theory of types,' pp. 28-33, Journal of Symbolic Logic, Vol. 7, No. 1, March, 1942; II.

        'PROOFS OF HOLY WRIT '

      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).

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 boards were a bright yellow, but now have some discoloration to the edges of boards and the spine. The gilt on the spine is still legible with tarnishing and discoloration to the yellow cloth covering. Minimal bumping or warping to the very thin boards as issued, one more noticeable warp or bump to the upper edge of the rear board, with a couple of lower corners bumped. No fraying and only minor wear to the edges. No previous owners names or writing noted in the book. No foxing or offsetting to any of the pages, all relatively bright and clean. Features the "Book Production War Economy Standards" title verso, 'This Edition published 1942 by arrangement with George Allen & Unwin'. 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. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Very Good / Facsimile Only.

        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.
