        Deadline" in Astounding Science Fiction: March 1944, Vol. XXXIII, No. 1

      New York: Street & Smith Publications, 1944. Vol. XXXII, No. 1. 178 pages. Wraps. First edition, first printing. Good condition. Clean pages, toned with age. Wear at extremities (especially at foot and bottom corner). Table of contents page torn, missing top fifth or so of page. Tear in pg. 35. Wear spot on back cover.The extremely rare issue of the magazine Astounding Science Fiction that contained the story "Deadline" by Cleve Cartmill. Although set on another planet, it apparently describes isotope separation and a weapon similar to the (then) top-secret atomic bomb, causing an uproar within the highest levels of the American government. Military Intelligence enlisted Cartmill's mailman as a confidential informant. The FBI investigated the author as well, commanding him to not write about such matters, and the magazine's editor (John Campbell) and other authors connected to the magazine such as Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein. Rumor has it that many copies of the magazine were bought up by the government and destroyed to preserve the intense secrecy of the Manhattan Project. Whether or not that rumor is true, today it is quite scarce.

        Free World Theatre: Nineteen New Radio Plays

      Random House, New York 1944 - First edition. Introduction by Thomas Mann. Preface by Arch Oboler. Fine in attractive, very good plus dustwrapper with slight wear at the crown and some modest rubbing. A radio and screen writers collaboration of radio plays promoting freedom and democracy, offered royalty free for non-commercial broadcast. Among the collaborators were the editors, Budd Schulberg, Pearl Buck, Jerome Lawrence, Ira Gershwin, and Samson Raphaelson. This copy Inscribed by Oboler to Rex Stout: "With best wishes to Rex Stout, fighter for freedom. Arch Oboler." Oboler was one of the great innovators of the golden age of radio drama, specializing in horror and suspense plays, perhaps best known for the popular series *Lights Out* and *Arch Oboler's Plays*. Oboler was later called to Hollywood, where he wrote and/or directed several films including the first "3-D" film *Bwana Devil*, the first film about post-nuclear survivors, *Five* (1951), and an early film about multiple personalities, *Bewitched*.

        Catalog Design: New Patterns In Product Information.

      New York: Sweet's Catalog Service/F.W. Dodge Corporation, 1944 - First edition. Hardcover w/wire spiral-binding of paper-covered boards. Yellow vellum endsheets. Very Good condition/-. No dust jacket, as issued. The top layer paper of the front cover is split between the lower 3" of the spiral binding (but the board itself is intact), and there is minor wear along the bottom edges of the front and back cover, with the lower right front corner worn. The front cover is unusually clean for this title, and the wire spiral is undamaged and free of any catches. Highly influential little publication by a brilliant international partnership--a Danish architect and a Czech designer working for an American publisher--that succinctly pioneered the organization of complex information(i.e., "information design") and displayed how modernism in graphic design could communicate effectively. Originally developed to improve legibility among the vast myriad of individual product catalogs that make up the mammoth Sweet's Catalog--a cornerstone of most architectural, construction, and product design offices of the 20th century, it was distributed to Sweet's contributor/clients, for their designers use. Author/Educator Stephen Heller has called this book and its two successors by the same authors, "the Holy Grails of information design", and credits its influence in how today's websites have evolved. Example: the text and its guideline layouts promote the use of "spread graphics" (two-page spread designs), something quite common today but almost unheard of at the time this appeared. Organized into three sections: Design Standards, Design Elements, and Design Patterns. Easily the finest copy of this fragile landmark publication we have seen. Unpaginated (approx. 70 pages). Protected with a clear archival cover. Please Note: A book of this value will require extra shipping charges for insurance, and will be quoted upon ordering for prior approval.

        Theory of Games and Economic Behavior

      Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1944. First edition, first printing. The copy of distinguished mathematician Andrew M. Gleason who (together with Montgomery and Zippin) resolved Hilbert’s Fifth Problem; a problem to which Von Neumann also greatly contributed. Gleason’s theorem of mathematical physics plays a fundamental role in quantum mechanics and in particular in hidden variable theories. A fine copy of Von Neumann and Morgenstern's groundbreaking text that created the interdisciplinary research field of game theory. “Quantitative mathematical models for games as poker or bridge at one time appeared impossible, since games like these involve free choices by the players at each move, and each move reacts to moves of other players. However, in the 1920s John von Neumann single-handedly invented game theory, introducing the general mathematical concept of ‘strategy’ in a paper on games of chance [Zur Theorie der Gesellschaftsspiele, Math. Ann. 100, 1928]. This contained the proof of his ‘minimax’ theorem that says ‘a strategy exists that guarantees, for each player, a maximum payoff assuming that the adversary acts so as to minimize that payoff.’ The ‘minimax’ principle, a key component of the game-playing computer programs developed in the 1950s and 1960s by Samuel, Newell, Simon, and others, was more fully articulated and explored in ‘The Theory of Games and Economic Behavior’, co-authored by von Neumann and the Austrian economist Oskar Morgenstern. Game theory, which draws upon mathematical logic, set theory and functional analysis, attempts to describe in mathematical terms the decision-making strategies used in games and other competitive situations. … Von Neumann revolutionized mathematical economics. Had he not suffered an early death from cancer in 1957, he most probably would have received the Noble Prize in economics. Several mathematical economists influenced by von Neumann’s ideas [as Nash, Harsanyi and Selten] later received the Nobel Prize in Economics”. (Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, p.473). OOC 953 [lacking jacket]; Norman 2167. Provenance: With the stamp of the distinguished American mathematician Andrew Mattei Gleason (1921-2008) famous for contributions in solving Hilbert's Fifth Problem and Gleason's theorem. "Gleason won the Newcomb Cleveland Prize from the American Association for the Advancement of Science [in 1952] for his contribution to the solution of the problem. It was, as was stated when the prize was presented to him ‘... an outstanding contribution to science’.” (MacTutor History of Mathematics). He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1956, to the National Academy of Science in 1966, and to the American Philosophical Society in 1977. Gleason's solution to Hilbert's problem [the question of whether all continuous groups are automatically differential groups] partly built on the work by Von Neumann in this field, and in particular on Von Neumann’s important 1933 solution of the problem in the special case of compact groups. Gleason’s theorem, on the uniqueness of measures in quantum mechanics, plays a fundamental role in the analysis of quantum measurement, and was essential to the groundbreaking work done in the 1960’s by John Bell on hidden variable theories of quantum physics; also a problem which Von Neumann worked much on. 8vo: 234 x 155 mm. Original cloth without the rare dust jacket; binding tight and clean. Rubberstamp 'Andrew M. Gleason' to the front free end-paper XVIII, 625, (1) pp. Errata sheet loosely inserted, as issued. Completley clean and fresh throughout. A fine copy.

      [1944]. First. First edition (two later compilations cover the army&#39;s activities, 1 August 1944 - 22 February 1945 and 23 February - 8 May 1945). Folios. Six volumes (of seven), the annex volumes for this period, complete (lacking volume one which covers primary operations for the period): 236, (1); 243, (4); 279, (2); 280, (4); 297, (1); 245, (1) pp. Illustrated from photographs, many folding maps, charts, and tables for each volume, endpaper maps of northern France. Each volume bears the ownership label of Maj. Fred J. Meyer who in 1955 was attached to the historical division of the army, stationed in Karlsruhe, West Germany. Gilt-stamped blue cloth, "unclassified" labels pasted over the gilt-stamped "secret" on each front cover. Manuscript reclassifications on preliminary pages of each volume and with a "surplus" stamp for each. Portions of an original glassine dustwrapper adhere to three volumes, some damping at the edges of several, and some spine ends a little worn, but a good solid set of the annex volumes for the first First Army report. This portion of the First Army&#39;s record of service in World War II begins after its arrival in Bristol, England, and covers preparations for D-Day, the June 6 1944 assault, and the drive across France to the capture of Paris in August 1944, at which time its commander, General Omar Bradley, was promoted to command the 12th Army Group, being replaced by Lt. General Courtney Hodges. .

        Strange Fruit. A Novel.

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1944 - Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board in white and yellow. With the dust jacket. A little loss of size to lower edges, but overall cloth bright and fresh. An excellent copy in the crisp dust jacket. First edition, first printing of this important novel dealing with interracial romance and lynching in the Southern United States. Immediately controversial, it was banned in a number of cities and prohibited from being mailed through the US Postal Service. Though the title may have been inspired by the Billie Holiday song of the same name, the author reported that she used the term "strange fruit" to describe the way that the culture of racial prejudice twisted and destroyed the lives of everyone it encompassed, black or white. A beautiful copy. [Attributes: First Edition]
