        Spellbound (Original photograph of Ingrid Bergman from the Salvidor Dali-designed dream sequence)

      Los Angeles: Selznick International, 1945. Vintage single weight photograph of Ingrid Bergman from Alfred Hitchcock's 1945 film noir. Taken from a dream sequence design for the film by Salvador Dali, wherein Bergman turns into a statue of the Roman goddess Diana. The sequence was set up, and possibly filmed, but does not appear in the final cut of the film. Shot by still photographer Madison Lacy. Both Hitchcock and producer David O. Selznick were less than fond of Dalí's ideas, and Bergman is quoted in David Spoto's Hitchcock biography, "The Dark Side of Genius," as saying that the Dalí sequence ran for almost twenty minutes before much of it, including the Diana portion, was cut by Selznick. The cut footage no longer exists, and only a few of Lacy's production stills have survived. This particular example, one of a purported 6 known shots from the unfilmed (or unused) portion of the dream sequence, shows the actress in a quintessentially sophisticated pose. It has become quite famous over time, and has been used repeatedly in books about Ms. Bergman, most recently on the rear cover of the 2008 Taschen book on Bergman in its "Movie Icons" series. Lacy's other work includes still photography for Erich von Stroheim's "The Wedding March," as well as promotional work for the films of Busby Berkeley. 8.5 x 7 inches. In an archival mat. Very Good, with some faint creasing from use, but no pinoles, tears, or loss. Criterion Collection 136. Grant, p. 601. Hardy, The BFI Companion to Crime, p. 311. Selby Canon, p. 123. Silver, p. 275. Spicer, p. 419.

        Applied Mathematical Research in Germany, with particular Reference to Naval Applications. Report No. 79. British Intelligence Objectives Sub-Committee.

      London: H.M.S.O., (1945) - Folio (195 x 255 mm), [iv], 65 pp., stapled roneoed typescript in printed wrappers as issued (2 early leaves bound out of sequence but complete), marked 'Copy No. 438' and stamped 'Restricted' in red, later stamped 'Unclassified' in blue (with, however, one paragraph on p. 2 blacked out), covers discoloured towards edges, considerable fraying around spine, internally very good. First edition, the report of an investigation carried out in Germany during June-July 1945, which included visits to A. Walther at the IPM, Darmstadt, and to the University of Göttingen. Page 63 gives a brief account of "Ing. Zuse's calculating machines", written before direct contact had been established with him. As the war in Europe was drawing to a close, the Allies planned to find out as much information as possible about the work of German scientists and mathematicians, particularly those engaged in rocketry and atomic weapons. This report documents an intelligence mission to Germany by a six-man team of mathematicians in June, July and August 1945. Eight 'targets' were selected for investigation, each of which is the subject of a section in the report (see Table of Contents). Notable among them was the 'Peenemünde Group' working on the trajectories of V2 rockets at Niederhausen near Darmstadt (Section 1, Group 1), and the Mathematisches Reichsinstitut at Oberwolfach, founded in 1944 by Wilhelm Süss, then Rektor of Freiburg University. Pages 63-4 give a brief account of Konrad Zuse's electro-mechanical binary computer (the Z4), evacuated to Göttingen in February 1945. The team was led by the British mathematician John Todd (1911-2007), who would go on to end his distinguished career at Caltech, after doing pioneering work in numerical analysis and playing a key role in the development of some of the first large computers. In 1943 he had founded the Admiralty Computing Service, from which he recruited this team. Fred Hoyle was added for his expertise with radar. 'There is no possibility of "controlling" mathematical research, i.e. preventing work being carried out on "war" subjects. It is abundantly clear from our observations in Germany and from information obtained from U.S.A. (and, to a much less extent, from our experience in U.K.) that almost any top-class mathematician practising in the most abstract fields can very quickly make substantial contributions in the mathematics of technology' (pp. 2-3). Elsewhere Todd recounted how on this mission he earned the title 'The Saviour of Oberwolfach', by preventing Moroccan soldiers from burning the entire mathematical library of Freiburg which Süss had evacuated to the Black Forest for safe-keeping (interview with Don Albers, 'John Todd—Numerical Mathematics Pioneer', The College Mathematics Journal, Volume 38, Number 1, January 2007 , pp. 2-23) [Attributes: First Edition]

        Le mythe de Giraudoux. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets.

      S.n. (Paysage dimanche) 1945 - - S.n. (Paysage dimanche), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1945), 11,5x22cm & 2 pages in-4, 3 pages in-4. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 3 pages in-4 publiée dans le numéro 17 du 7 Octobre 1945 du journal Le Paysage Dimanche. Manuscrit complet à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreuses ratures, corrections et ajouts. On joint le tapuscrit complet. Entre avril 1941 et août 1944, Maurice Blanchot publia dans la "Chronique de la vie intellectuelle" du Journal des Débats 173 articles sur les livres récemment parus. Dans une demi-page de journal (soit environ sept pages in-8), le jeune auteur de "Thomas l'obscur" fait ses premiers pas dans le domaine de la critique littéraire et inaugure ainsi une oeuvre théorique qu'il développera plus tard dans ces nombreux essais, de "La Part du feu" à "L'Entretien infini" et "L'Écriture du désastre". Dès les premiers articles, Blanchot fait preuve d'une acuité d'analyse dépassant largement l'actualité littéraire qui en motive l'écriture. Oscillant entre classiques et modernes, écrivains de premier ordre et romanciers mineurs, il pose, dans ses chroniques, les fondements d'une pensée critique qui marquera la seconde partie du XXe. Transformé par l'écriture et par la guerre, Blanchot rompt, au fil d'une pensée exercée "au nom de l'autre", avec les violentes certitudes maurassiennes de sa jeunesse. Non sans paradoxe, il transforme alors la critique littéraire en acte philosophique de résistance intellectuelle à la barbarie au coeur même d'un journal "ouvertement maréchaliste": "Brûler un livre, en écrire, sont les deux actes entre lesquels la culture inscrit ses oscillations contraires" (Le Livre, In Journal des Débats, 20 janvier 1943). En 2007, les Cahiers de la NRF réunissent sous la direction de Christophe Bident toutes les chroniques littéraires non encore publiées en volumes avec cette pertinente analyse du travail critique de Blanchot : "romans, poèmes, essais donnent lieu à une réflexion singulière, toujours plus sûre de sa propre rhétorique, livrée davantage à l'écho de l'impossible ou aux sirènes de la disparition. (.) Non sans contradictions ni pas de côté, et dans la certitude fiévreuse d'une oeuvre qui commence (.) ces articles révèlent la généalogie d'un critique qui a transformé l'occasion de la chronique en nécessité de la pensée." (C. Bident). Les manuscrits autographes de Maurice Blanchot sont d'une grande rareté. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Letter is uniformly rippled with mounting remnants and light scattered stains not materially affecting McAuliffe?s signature. Good condition. In full, ?Thank you for your letter, your news clippings of the 103d Division and the picture of your dog, Pal. Being a dog lover myself, and the proud possessor of a German Dachsund puppy, I can appreciate how lucky you are in having Pal. The cactus, as you know, is a hardy desert plant which does not need much nourishment to survive. We have always felt that the Cactus shoulder insignia truly symbolizes the toughness of the 103d Division, and our beaten German enemy can testify to our thorns. [Germany had surrendered just 13 days earlier on May 7th] I regret that time does not permit my sending you a complete story of the Division. However, we trained in Louisiana and Texas, arrived in France last October, drove through the Vosges Mountains is Alsace, through the Siegfried Line in Germany, and then down through Austria and ten miles into Italy where we made our historic link up with the Fifth Army. In accordance with your request, I am enclosing a Cactus patch of the 103d. My best wishes to you.? The 2.5? diameter colorful Cactus patch in present and in fine condition. The original envelope, 7.75? x 4?, is rippled and bordered in transparent plastic tape which covers part of the General?s signature ?A C McAuliffe / Maj Gen USA? in lower left."

        On the theory of quantum mechanics.[London: Harrison & Sons for the Royal Society, 1926].

      First edition, inscribed presentation offprint, of Dirac's paper, which "is justly seen as a major contribution to quantum theory" (Kragh, p. 36). It introduced his quantum mechanical derivation of what is now called Fermi-Dirac statistics, which describes a distribution of particles (now known as fermions, a name coined by Dirac in 1945) in certain systems containing many identical particles that obey the Pauli exclusion principle-meaning that no two of the particles can occupy the same quantum state simultaneously. The paper "will be remembered as the first in which quantum mechanics is brought to bear on statistical mechanics. Recall that the earliest work on quantum statistics, by Bose and by Einstein, predates quantum mechanics. Also, Fermi's introduction of the exclusion principle in statistical problems, though published after the arrival of quantum mechanics, is still executed in the context of the "old" quantum theory. All these contributions were given their quantum mechanical underpinnings by Dirac, who was, in fact, the first to give the correct justification of Planck's law, which started it all" (Pais, p. 6).<br/><br/> Dirac's paper may also be considered the birth of quantum electrodynamics. He applied Schrödinger's wave mechanics (his earlier papers had used exclusively Heisenberg's matrix mechanics) to develop a theory of time-dependent perturbations and applied it to the emission and absorption of radiation. "Radiation theory was the subject of the last section of the important paper "On the theory of quantum mechanics." There Dirac considered a system of atoms subjected to an external perturbation that could vary arbitrarily with the time. Of course, the particular perturbation he had in mind was an incident electromagnetic field, but, characteristically, he stated the problem in the most general way possible" (Kragh, pp. 120-1). <br/><br/> As indicated in the above citation, Dirac and Enrico Fermi discovered Fermi-Dirac statistics independently of one another. Several months before the appearance of Dirac's paper, Fermi had published his own in which he applied Pauli's exclusion principle to his theory of an ideal monatomic gas, rather than for general systems of identical fermions, and in the context of the "old" quantum theory, not quantum mechanics. "When he was asked about it several decades later, [Dirac] remarked: 'I had read Fermi's paper on Fermi statistics and had forgotten it completely. When I wrote my work on the anti-symmetric wave functions, I did not refer to it at all. Then Fermi wrote and told me and I remembered that I had previously read about it' . . . Fermi's letter had the effect that Dirac later on never forgot to mention the priority of his Italian colleague when referring to the statistics obeyed by electrons and the like. In spite of this admitted priority of Fermi it was essentially Dirac's paper that helped the physicists tremendously in understanding the meaning of the new statistical methods" (Mehra & Rechenberg, p. 767). <br/><br/> "Following the publication of Dirac's paper, the new statistics was eagerly taken up and applied to a variety of problems. The first application was made by Dirac's former teacher, Fowler; as an expert in statistical physics, he was greatly interested in the Fermi-Dirac result. Fowler studied a Fermi-Dirac gas under very high pressure, thus beginning a chapter in astrophysics that, a few years later, would be developed into the celebrated theory of white dwarfs by his student Chandrasekhar. In Germany, Pauli and Sommerfeld made other important applications of the new quantum statistics, with which they laid the foundation for the quantum theory of metals in 1927" (Kragh, p. 36). <br/><br/> H. Kragh, <i>Dirac: A Scientific Biography</i>, 1990; J. Mehra & H. Rechenberg, <i>The Historical Development of Quantum Theory</i>, Vol. 5, 2000; A.

        The Folded Leaf

      New York: Harper and Brothers. 1945. First. First edition. Fine in a presentable, about very good dustwrapper with shallow chipping at the extremities and a scrape on the spine. The author's third book, a cheaply produced wartime novel. This copy Inscribed in the year of publication to his longtime colleague, Berton Roueche, with a passage from the novel: "March, 1945. For Berton Roueche with best regards, Bill Maxwell. 'If pursued, the truth withdraws, puts on one false face after another, and finally goes underground where it can only be got at in the complex, agonizing absurdity of dreams.'" A wonderful inscription, and an important association. Dr. Roueche wrote about medicine and public health for The New Yorker in the 1940s and '50s, and was especially known for his narrative of doctors as detectives confronting mysterious illnesses and environmental health issues. His work helped to spawn a genre that has since extended to detective fiction, television, and movies. .

        KZ - Bildbericht aus fünf Konzentrationslagern

      Amerikanischen Kriegsinformationsamt im Auftrag des Oberbefehlshabers der Alliierten Streitkräfte (1945), N. p. - Contains 44 photographs, taken during the liberation of five concentration camps: Buchenwald, Belsen, Gardelegen, Nordhausen and Ohrdruf. First photo publication in postwar Germany. (28) p. The aim of publishing this brochure by the American Office of War Information and the Psychological Warfare Division was to show the German population the horror of the death camps in Germany. However because of the inefficiency of the distribution most of the pamphlets were given to prisoners of war camps. Despite the large number of the publication only a few copies remained.The photographs of the pamphlet played important role as evidences in the Nuremberg Trials.It includes the famous and controversial photo of the Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel in Buchenwald (first published in the "New York Times" on May 6, 1945 with the caption "Crowded Bunks in the Prison Camp at Buchenwald" taken inside Block 56 by Private H. Miller of the Civil Affairs Branch of the U. S. Army Signal Corps on April 16, 1945.) [Parr-Badger I. p. 188; 194., Cornelia Brink - Ikonen der Vernichtung.
