        A Method for the Calculation of the Zeta-Function.

      London: C. F. Hodgson and Son, 1943. First edition, journal issue in the original printed wrappers, of Turing's ground-breaking work outlining a method (which he hoped could be performed by a machine) to decide the most famous open problem in mathematics, the so-called Riemann hypothesis. This is a conjecture about the location of the zeros of the 'Riemann zeta function' - it asserts that, apart from some 'trivial' zeros, they all lie on a certain 'critical line.' If true, this would have enormous implications for the study of prime numbers. Turing had worked on the zeta function since 1939 and he aimed to calculate the zeros using a mechanical computer. "The Turing archive contains a sketch of a proposal, in 1939, to build an analog computer that would calculate approximate values for the Riemann zeta-function on the critical line. His ingenious method was published in 1943 [as the present work]" (Downey, p. 11). Although he received a grant to build his zeta-function machine, the outbreak of World War II and Turing's role in it as cryptanalyst postponed the work, and it was not until four years later that he was actually able to publish his first paper on this important subject. Rare on the market in unrestored original printed wrappers (we know of only one copy at auction, in the Weinreb Computer Collection, Bloomsbury Book Auctions, 28 October 1999). The Riemann zeta function is defined as the sum of an infinite series ζ(s) = 1/1s + 1/2s + 1/3s + 1/4s + ..... This actually makes sense when s is any complex number (except s = 1, when the sum is infinite). It is known that ζ(s) = 0 when s = -2, -4, -6, ... - these are called the 'trivial zeros'. The Riemann hypothesis (RH) is the assertion that all the non-trivial zeros are complex numbers of the form s = ½ + t√-1, where t is a real number - these complex numbers form a line in the complex plane, called the 'critical line'. The RH, first put forward by Bernhard Riemann in 1859, is known to be true for the first 1013 non-trivial zeros, but remains unproven. "The RH is widely regarded as the most famous unsolved problem in mathematics. It was one of the 23 famous problems selected by [David] Hilbert in 1900 as among the most important in mathematics, and it is one of the seven Millennium Problems selected by the Clay Mathematics Institute in 2000 as the most important for the 21st century" (Hedjhal & Odlyzko, p. 266). "The first computations of zeros of the zeta function were performed by Riemann, and likely played an important role in his posing of the RH as a result likely to be true. His computations were carried out by hand, using an advanced method that is known today as the Riemann-Siegel formula. Both the method and Riemann's computations that utilized it remained unknown to the world-at-large until the early 1930s, when they were found in Riemann's unpublished papers by C. L. Siegel ... In the mid-1930s, after Siegel's publication of the Riemann-Siegel formula, [the Oxford mathematician] E. C. Titchmarsh obtained a grant for a larger computation. With the assistance of L. J. Comrie, tabulating machines, some 'computers' (as the mostly female operators of such machinery were called in those days), and the recently published algorithm, Titchmarsh established that the 1041 nontrivial zero with 0 < t < 1468 all satisfied the RH" (ibid., p. 268). "Turing encountered the Riemann zeta function as a student, and developed a life-long fascination with it. Though his research in this area was not a major thrust of his career, he did make a number of pioneering contributions" (ibid., p. 266). "Apparently he had decided that the Riemann hypothesis was probably false, if only because such great efforts had failed to prove it. Its falsity would mean that the zeta-function did take the value zero at some point which was off the special line, in which case this point could be located by brute force, just by calculating enough values of the zeta-function ... There were two aspects to the problem. Riemann's zeta-function was defined as the sum of an infinite number of terms, and although this sum could be re-expressed in many different ways, any attempt to evaluate it would in some way involve making an approximation. It was for the mathematician to find a good approximation, and to prove that it was good: that the error involved was sufficiently small. Such work did not involve computation with numbers, but required highly technical work with the calculus of complex numbers. Titchmarsh had employed a certain approximation which - rather romantically - had been exhumed from Riemann's own papers at Göttingen where it had lain for seventy years. But for extending the calculation to thousands of new zeroes a fresh approximation was required; and this Alan set out to find and to justify. "The second problem, quite different, was the 'dull and elementary' one of actually doing the computation, with numbers substituted into the approximate formula, and worked out for thousands of different entries. It so happened that the formula was rather like those which occurred in plotting the positions of the planets, because it was of the form of a sum of circular functions with different frequencies. It was for this reason that Titchmarsh had contrived to have the dull repetitive work of addition, multiplication, and of looking up of entries in cosine tables done by the same punched-card methods that were used in planetary astronomy. But it occurred to Alan that the problem was very similar to another kind of computation which was also done on a large practical scale - that of tide prediction. Tides could also be regarded as the sum of a number of waves of different periods: daily, monthly, yearly oscillations of rise and fall. At Liverpool there was a machine which performed the summation automatically, by generating circular motions of the right frequencies and adding them up. It was a simple analogue machine; that is, it created a physical analogue of the mathematical function that had to be calculated. This was a quite different idea from that of the Turing machine, which would work away on a finite, discrete, set of symbols. This tide-predicting machine, like a slide rule, depended not on symbols, but on the measurement of lengths. Such a machine, Alan had realised, could be used on the zeta-function calculation, to save the dreary work of adding, multiplying, and looking up of cosines. "Alan must have described this idea to Titchmarsh, for a letter from him dated 1 December 1937 approved of this programme of extending the calculation, and mentioned: 'I have seen the tide-predicting machine at Liverpool, but it did not occur to me to use it in this way' (Hodges, pp. 140-2). "Alan was not the only person to be thinking about mechanical computation in 1939. There were a number of ideas and initiatives, reflecting the growth of new electrical industries. Several projects were on hand in the United States. One of these was the 'differential analyser' that the American engineer Vannevar Bush had designed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1930. This could set up physical analogues of certain differential equations - the class of problem of most interest in physics and engineering. A similar machine had then been built by the British physicist D.R. Hartree out of Meccano components at Manchester University. This in turn had been followed by the commissioning of another differential analyser at Cambridge, where in 1937 the mathematical faculty had sanctioned a new Mathematical Laboratory to house it ... "Such a machine would have been useless for the zeta-function problem. Differential analysers could simulate only one special kind of mathematical system, and that only to a limited and very approximate extent. Similarly the Turing zeta-function machine would be entirely specific to the even more special problem on hand. It had no connection whatever with the Universal Turing Machine. It could hardly have been less universal. On 24 March he applied to the Royal Society for a grant to cover the cost of constructing it, and on their questionnaire wrote, 'Apparatus would be of little permanent value. It could be added to for the purpose of carrying out similar calculations for a wider range of t and might be used for some other investigations connected with the zeta-function. I cannot think of any applications that would not be connected with the zeta-function.' Hardy and Titchmarsh were quoted as referees for the application, which won the requested £40. The idea was that although the machine could not perform the required calculation exactly, it could locate the places where the zeta-function took a value near zero, which could then be tackled by a more exact hand computation. Alan reckoned it would reduce the amount of work by a factor of fifty. Perhaps as important, it would be a good deal more fun. "The Liverpool tide-predicting machine made use of a system of strings and pulleys to create an analogue of the mathematical problem of adding a series of waves. The length of the string, as it wrapped itself round the pulleys, would be measured to obtain the total sum required. They started with the same idea for the zeta-function summation, but then changed to a different design. In this, a system of meshing gear wheels would rotate to simulate the circular functions required. The addition was to be done not by measuring length, but weight. There would in fact be thirty wave-like terms to be added, each simulated by the rotation of one gear wheel. Thirty weights were to be attached to the corresponding wheels, at a distance from their centres, and then the moment of the weights would vary in a wave-like way as the wheels rotated. The summation would be performed by balancing the combined effect of the weights by a single counterweight. The frequencies of the thirty waves required ran through the logarithms of the integers up to 30. To represent these irrational quantities by gear wheels they had to be approximated by fractions. Thus for instance the frequency determined by the logarithm of 3 was represented in the machine by gears giving a ratio of 34 x 31/57 x 35. This required four gear wheels, with 34, 31, 57 and 35 teeth respectively, to move each other so that one of them could act as the generator of the 'wave'. Some of the wheels could be used two or three times over, so that about 80, rather than 120 gear wheels were required in all. These wheels were ingeniously arranged in meshing groups, and mounted on a central axis in such a way that the turning of a large handle would set them in simultaneous motion. The construction of the machine demanded a great deal of highly accurate gear-cutting to make this possible. "Donald MacPhail drew up a blueprint of the design, dated 17 July 1939. But Alan did not leave the engineering work to him. In fact his room, in the summer of 1939, was liable to be found with a sort of jigsaw puzzle of gear wheels across the floor ... For Alan Turing personally, the machine was a symptom of something that could not be answered by mathematics alone. He was working within the central problems of classical number theory, and making a contribution to it, but this was not enough. The Turing machine, and the ordinal logics, formalizing the workings of the mind; Wittgenstein's enquiries; the electric multiplier and now this concatenation of gear wheels - they all spoke of making some connection between the abstract and the physical. It was not science, not 'applied mathematics', but a sort of applied logic, something that had no name" (Hodges, pp. 155-7). We do not know how well Turing's zeta function machine would have worked, had it been built. Work on this project was interrupted by the outbreak of World War II, and this computer was never constructed. In 1950, he used the Manchester Mark 1 Electronic Computer to extend the Titchmarsh verification of the RH to the first 1104 zeros of the zeta function, the ones with 0 < t < 1540.

        Manuscript Diary.

      - 1944 1943 - pencil and black ink on grey-lined paper, [unpaginated], 8vo, original quarter red cloth with blue cloth sides, blue-speckled edges, some general wear, good . A lengthy and detailed diary, written almost daily from January 1943 to December 1944 by Regimental Sergeant-Major Ward of the 56th Heavy Regiment, Royal Artillery, for his wife Elsi/Elsa(?). Ward diligently records the names (occasionally misspelled) of every town and village he passes through, as the Regiment provides artillery support to battles such as Longstop Hill and Medjez el Bab in North Africa and the Volturno Line and Monte Cassino in Italy. His entries are suffused with a pride in his work and sympathy for the PBI (Poor Bloody Infantry), but steer clear of the gory details of war - even after a short hospital stay following a gunshot wound to the arm, gained at the start of Germany's Operation Ochsenkopf. In a moment of particular understatement, he sums up the infamous Battle of Romini with 'what a do', before adding as a 'point of interest we have fired 546 tons of ammo in the last 7 days'. Ward shares his opinions on the weather, food, picture shows and local sights: Rome is grand, Florence disappointing. He marvels at the sight of a lifetime: 'Naples burning on one side & Vesuvius throwing out red hot ash on the other side', but there is wistfulness too. Overlooking the harbour at Bizerte reminds him of the view from Beachy Head looking down on Eastbourne, and he celebrates his wife's birthday with 'some daffs stuck in a bottle which of course keep reminding me of home'. The entries grow shorter out of necessity towards the end of 1944 as Ward reaches the end of his notebook. Squeezed onto the final line of the final page: 'This ends the diary, hope if all's well that I shall be able to read it at home one day. Here's to the New Year - 1945'. The 56th Heavy Regiment famously included among its numbers the comedian Spike Milligan, until he was wounded in the heavy and protracted fighting of the Battle of Monte Cassino; neither man mentions the other in his diaries that we can find, although Ward makes note of the direct hit suffered by Milligan's 19th Battery on 18th January 1944. It seems likely the diarist is Warrant Officer Class I (Regimental Sergeant-Major) Douglas John Ward, who received a Military Medal in July 1944. ('Mick tells me that he saw RSM Ward name in the Honours List in the Times, I expect that is me', 30/07/44).

        Baumkrone.

      - Bleistift, auf bräunlichem Velin, verso signiert, bezeichnet und datiert &#132;C. Hummel. Auf Rügen 63." 33,3:23,4 cm. &#150; Mit einigen kleineren Wasser- sowie wenige Braunfleckchen. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß des Künstlers, der 1943-1993 im Schloßmuseum Weimar verwahret wurde. Inv. 203. Sehr souverän gezeichnete Baumstudie. Der Landschaftsmaler und Radierer Carl Hummel war 1834-1842 Schüler an der Weimarer Zeichenakademie bei dem Maler und Radierer F. Preller d.Ä. (1804-1878), der Hummels spezielle Vorliebe für die &#132;heroische Landschaft" prägte. Gemeinsam mit Preller unternahm er 1839-1841 Studienreisen nach Holland, Norwegen, Rügen und nach Tirol. Neben dem Studium bei Preller machte er zudem bei J.B. Schwerdgeburth (1759&#150;nach 1822) eine Ausbildung zum Kupferstecher. 1842 reiste er nach Italien; in Rom, auf Capri und Sizilien hielt er sich längere Zeit auf. 1844 kehrte er in seine Geburtsstadt zurück. 1845-1846 besuchte er erneut Rom, danach reiste er in die Schweiz. 1855 erfolgte auf Einladung des Erbprinzen Georg von Meiningen ein Aufenthalt auf dessen Villa Carlotta am Comer See. 1859 wurde er als Professor an die Weimarer Zeichenschule berufen. 1869 unternahm er eine Reise nach Korsika, in den folgenden Jahren jedoch meist nur noch Reisen in die Mittelgebirge. Hummel, Sohn des gefeierten Pianisten und Komponisten Johann Nepomuk Hummel, zählt zu den bekanntesten Künstlern seiner Heimatstadt. Sein Vater war von Maria Pawlowna (1786-1859), Großfürstin von Rußland, Erbprinzessin von Sachsen-Weimar und Großherzogin von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach 1818 als Kapellmeister nach Weimar berufen worden, eine Stellung, die er bis 1838 innehatte. Die Großfürstin, die nach ihrer Heirat 1804 aus St. Petersburg nach Weimar kam, förderte mittels ihrer reichen Mitgift in besonderer Weise Musik, Theater, Bildende Kunst und Literatur und verhalf damit dem zwar geistig und literarisch hoch entwickelten, aber verarmten Hof zu neuem Aufschwung. Auch Carl erhielt bekanntermaßen von der Großfürstin einige Aufträge.

        Women][World War II] Photo Album Depicting a Husband and Wife's Military Service in World War II.

      1943- ca. 1948., Harlingen, Texas; Boca Chica Key, Florida; France And Elsewhere 1943 - 10¼" x 13½". String tied brown faux leather over boards. 64 pages with 342 black and white photographs inserted into corner mounts; 9" x 11" pencil sketch of a WAC laid in. Most photos measure 2½" x 2½" to 3½" x 5" and most are captioned. Album very good plus with moderate corner wear and two gouges on the back board, a few leaves partially detached; photos generally near fine or better, 14 are lacking. This is a photo album documenting the wartime and early postwar years of a husband and wife who served in World War II. Len and Jessie Hoover were married November 16, 1940. Jessie was a WAC who likely served stateside in the Army Air Force. Len enlisted in 1943 and was sent to radio school after basic training. He was part of the 90th Infantry Division that liberated the Flossenburg concentration camp in April 1945. According to contemporary newspaper accounts, Lin was part of a small group asked to tour the camp with instructions to remember all that they saw, and was subsequently asked to testify at the Nuremberg Trials. The album starts with shots of Jessie in basic training at Camp Ruston in Louisiana as well as attending the United Radio and Television School in Newark, New Jersey. Several excellent shots here show groups of WACS marching, standing at attention and going to class. We know she was stationed at Harlingen and Boca Chica and photos here show her and friends around the base and in town, as well as relaxing and interacting with the men. At least 60 photos in the album feature women in uniform and a fair amount show them in civilian clothes during R&R. One great shot shows women in military dress at an NCO club, cigarettes in hands, the table covered in beer bottles. The military photos of Len begin with him at infantry training at Camp Gordon Georgia and show men lined up with rifles and standing at attention. There's a series of approximately 40 photos showing him in France near the end of, and just after, the war. These photos mostly show the men at rest, and some show them at the Moselle River as well as a series of shots of a bridge that they had to guard after taking it along with 200 German prisoners. Alas, none of the photos here show Lin at Flossenburg. There are also around 60 images showing the Hoovers' civilian life, posing with friends and family as well as shots of their young children after the war. An excellent collection of well composed military photos, featuring a WAC and a soldier who testified against Nazis in their war crimes trials.

These photos mostly show the men at rest, and some show them at the Moselle River as well as a series of shots of a bridge that they had to guard after taking it along with 200 German prisoners. Alas, none of the photos here show Lin at Flossenburg. There are also around 60 images showing the Hoovers' civilian life, posing with friends and family as well as shots of their young children after the war. An excellent collection of well composed military photos, featuring a WAC and a soldier who testified against Nazis in their war crimes trials.

        Landschaftsausschnitt im Thüringer Wald, unterhalb einer Burg.

      - Bleistift, auf bräunlichem Velin. 42,8:29,3 cm. &#150; Insgesamt leicht fleckig. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß des Künstlers, der 1943-1993 im Schloßmuseum Weimar verwahret wurde. Inv. 143. Mit Bleistift ganz leicht skizziert erkennt man am Bildrand oben die Umrisse einer Burg, vermutlich der Wartburg. Der Landschaftsmaler und Radierer Carl Hummel war 1834-1842 Schüler an der Weimarer Zeichenakademie bei dem Maler und Radierer F. Preller d.Ä. (1804-1878), der Hummels spezielle Vorliebe für die &#132;heroische Landschaft" prägte. Gemeinsam mit Preller unternahm er 1839-1841 Studienreisen nach Holland, Norwegen, Rügen und nach Tirol. Neben dem Studium bei Preller machte er zudem bei J.B. Schwerdgeburth (1759&#150;nach 1822) eine Ausbildung zum Kupferstecher. 1842 reiste er nach Italien; in Rom, auf Capri und Sizilien hielt er sich längere Zeit auf. 1844 kehrte er in seine Geburtsstadt zurück. 1845-1846 besuchte er erneut Rom, danach reiste er in die Schweiz. 1855 erfolgte auf Einladung des Erbprinzen Georg von Meiningen ein Aufenthalt auf dessen Villa Carlotta am Comer See. 1859 wurde er als Professor an die Weimarer Zeichenschule berufen. 1869 unternahm er eine Reise nach Korsika, in den folgenden Jahren jedoch meist nur noch Reisen in die Mittelgebirge. Hummel, Sohn des gefeierten Pianisten und Komponisten Johann Nepomuk Hummel, zählt zu den bekanntesten Künstlern seiner Heimatstadt. Sein Vater war von Maria Pawlowna (1786-1859), Großfürstin von Rußland, Erbprinzessin von Sachsen-Weimar und Großherzogin von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach 1818 als Kapellmeister nach Weimar berufen worden, eine Stellung, die er bis 1838 innehatte. Die Großfürstin, die nach ihrer Heirat 1804 aus St. Petersburg nach Weimar kam, förderte mittels ihrer reichen Mitgift in besonderer Weise Musik, Theater, Bildende Kunst und Literatur und verhalf damit dem zwar geistig und literarisch hoch entwickelten, aber verarmten Hof zu neuem Aufschwung. Auch Carl erhielt bekanntermaßen von der Großfürstin einige Aufträge.

        Autograph quotation signed.

      New York, 1943. - Oblong 8vo. 1 p. Reverse with autograph musical quotation signed by Arthur Rubinstein. The second verse of his famous poem "Un Canto para Bolivar", read by Neruda at the University of Mexico on July 24, 1941, for the 101st anniversary of the death of Simon Bolivar, and published in an edition of 500 copies (Imprenta Universitaria, 1941). Neruda noted this stanza in an autograph album in New York in 1943. "Tu pequeño cadáver de capitán valiente | ha extendido en lo inmenso su metálica forma, | de pronto salen dedos tuyos entre la nieve | y el australien pescador saca a la luz de pronto | tu sonrisa, tu voz palpitando en las redes". - Two years earlier, Rubinstein penned four bars of the Polish national anthem "Himno Polaco" in the autograph album from which this sheet originates.

        Typed Draft of Arturo Toscanini's "To The People of America," with Corrections in Toscanini's Hand

      N/P. LOOSE_LEAF. New York, September 3, 1943. A late typed draft of Arturo Toscanini's "To The People of America," which appeared ten days later in Life Magazine. Corrections in the hand of Walter and Arturo Toscanini. From the Toscanini estate. "On 13 September 1943 the editorial page of Life Magazine was occupied by an article entitled "To the People of America," and signed by Arturo Toscanini; It was the only extensive declaration he ever wrote - and it was about politics, not music... The article had originally been intended as a letter to President Roosevelt and the first drafts had been prepared for Arturo Toscanini by the Italian historians in exile Gaetano Salvemini and Giorgio La Plana, who were both teaching at Harvard University at the time. They knew that their beliefs and Arturo Toscanini's coincided perfectly, and they wanted the letter to appear over his signature because his fame was much greater than theirs... In their letter to President Roosevelet, the exiles stated their hopes and fears for Italy's immediate future, and they tried - as the text illustrates - to influence allied policy toward their native country." Harvey Sachs, The Letters of Arturo Toscanini, page 389. Sachs wrote in his 1978 biography of Toscanini that Toscanini wrote the article on his own, but then found evidence to the contrary. Regardless of its hidden origins, this letter was a defining moment in Toscanini's career in the United States. This copy, from September 3, would have been one of the final drafts. The text is nearly identical to the published version with a few small changes - "defying everything" is added in the fourth paragraph of the published version, the "..." marks are replaced by simple periods in a few instances, and "just" has been replaced by "righteous" in the published version. Strangely, the one error in AT's hand - moving the word "either" in the sixth paragraph - did not make it into the printed version. A remarkable piece of Toscanini ephemera. Four pages, carbon paper, with text on rectos only. Excellent condition overall with some normal tanning. A few stray corrections in pencil, which an accompanying folder from the estate states are in Walter's hand. Please contact us for additional pictures or information about this item. . Very Good. 1943. First Edition.

In Good condition, in dust jacket which also bears a "Second Printing" statement on the flap, with the original price of $3.00 intact. In Good condition, in a Fair dust jacket. Exterior cloth shows sunning to spine and edges, with some rubbing, wear and a few small abrasions. Light foxing and soiling to side of page block. Stamp to top side of page block, as well as paste downs. Front free end paper appears to be missing. Foxing to prelims and terminals, with evidence of bookplate removal from front paste down. Pages lightly age toned. The dust jacket is very fragile, with partial splits forming along the folds, as well as some chipping, creasing, tearing and loss, with a number "81" written on the spine panel perhaps in pencil. The dust jacket is housed in a removable plastic protective sleeve, and despite it's condition, remains pretty scarce and collectable.
