        [HAND-ANNOTATED ALBUM CONTAINING EIGHTY-SIX PHOTOGRAPHS FEATURING A SEGREGATED AFRICAN-AMERICAN REGIMENT STATIONED IN ADAK, ALASKA DURING WORLD WAR II]

      [Adak, Ak, 1945. Eighty-six photographs, mostly 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches, cornered into album pages. Brad-bound album pages, some loose. Covers lacking, album pages chipped, but photographs in very good condition. A wonderful collection of vernacular photography featuring a segregated African-American regiment in Adak, Alaska on the Aleutian Islands during World War II. Adak Island was an important strategic base for American operations against the encroaching Japanese forces during World War II. Adak Army Airfield was established on Aug. 30, 1942, to provide a forward base from which to attack Japanese forces on neighboring Kiska Island. The first four photos in the album show boxing legend, Joe Louis, who spent a great deal of time during World War II traveling around to various military installments to put on promotional boxing matches in an effort to raise money for the war. Louis is known to have fought Alaskan boxing champion Percy Blatchford in Adak during Blatchford's military service there. The remainder, and great majority of the album is composed of posed photographs of various members of an African-American regiment stationed on Adak Island during World War II. Each photograph is hand-annotated with names identifying the subjects of the photographs, including Joe Figgins, Bill Tucker, Andy Speaks, Harry Butler, Kenny Range, Hadie Owens, Tommie Rucker, Leroy Cook, Bill LaFleur, Henry Duncan, George Williams, and many others. Occasional commentary is added to the notations, including one photo captioned "Catching some Aleutian Sunshine." Sometimes the captions are humorous, as in ""Big Bill Lee - Chicago's Gift to Adak." One photograph clearly shows gravestones with Japanese writing; this photo is captioned "Jap graves." Incidentally, this may be a unique surviving view of the Japanese cemetery on Adak, as the 236 Japanese dead were taken from Adak and reburied in Japan's Chidorigafuchi National Cemetery in 1953. A few photographs show natural features, such as the Bering Sea, and man-made features, such as the "Bay Shore Highway." The last fifteen photos show black soldiers on tractors in a barren landscape; the soldiers are perhaps part of an engineering corps on Adak. A rare glimpse into the African-American soldiering life during World War II, in a rarely-seen setting during the conflict.

        A Method for the Calculation of the Zeta-Function. [Received 7 March, 1939. - Read 16 March, 1939]. [In: Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society. Second Series. Volume 48].

      London, Hodgson & Son, 1945. Royal8vo. In a recent nice green full cloth binding with gilt lettering to spine. Entire volumes 48 of "Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society. Second Series". A very nice and clean copy without any institutional stamps. Pp. 180-197. [Entire volume: (4),477 pp.]. First printing of Turing's first published paper devoted to the Riemann-zeta function, the basis for his famous "Zeta-function Machine", a foundation for the digital computer.While working on his Ph.D.-thesis, Turing was concerned with a few other subjects as well, one of them seemingly having nothing to do with logic, namely that of analytic number theory. The problem that Turing here took up was that of the famous Riemann Hypothesis, more precisely the aspect of it that concerns the distribution of prime numbers. This is the problem that Hilbert in 1900 listed as one of the most important unsolved problems of mathematics. Turing began investigating the zeros of the Rieman zeta-function and certain of its consequences. The initial work on this was never published, though, but nevertheless he continued his work. "Turing had ideas for the design of an "analogue" machine for calculating the zeros of the Riemann zeta-function, similar to the one used in Liverpool for calculating the tides." (Herken, The Universal Turing Machine: A Half-Century Survey, p. 110). Having worked on the zeta-function since his Ph.D.-thesis but never having published anything directly on the topic, Turing began working as chief cryptanalyst during the Second World War and thus postponed this important work till after the war. Thus, it was not until 1945 that he was actually able to publish his first work on this most important subject, namely the work that he had presented already in 1939, the groundbreaking "A Method for the Calculation of the Zeta-Function", which constitutes his first printed contribution to the subject."After the publication of his paper "On computable Numbers," Turing had begun investigating the Riemann zeta-function calculation, an aspect of the Riemann hypothesis concerning the distribution of prime numbers... Turing's work on this problem was interrupted by World War II, but in 1950 he resumed his investigations with the aid of the Manchester University Mark I [one of the earliest general purpose digital computers]..." (Origins of Cyberspace p. 468).Not in Origins of Cyberspace (on this subject only having his 1953-paper - No. 938).

        This Hunger. With five woodblocks by Ian Hugo.

      New York: Gemor Press, 1945 - Octavo. Original cream paper-covered boards, titles to spine and front cover in purple, illustrations to covers in purple, edges untrimmed. Slight bumps to spine ends, a couple small faint marks to covers; an excellent copy. With 5 woodblock prints. First and limited edition, one of 1,050 copies. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Leo, of the hooded insights . who reads the unwritten books. With love, Anaïs". The recipient was likely Leo Lerman, editor of Harper's Bazaar at the time, and friend of Nin's, with whom she often had "whimsical and completely free talks". In 1946 Nin respectfully turned down Lerman's request for a short autobiography to use in a profile feature, writing, "I am more interested in human beings than in writing, more interested in lovemaking than in writing, more interested in living than in writing . I walk into the fire always, and come out more alive. All of which is not for Harper's Bazaar". The illustrator was one of Nin's two husbands, Hugh Parker Guiler; they were married from 1923 until her death in 1977.

Tall, slim 8vo: [4],36pp. Publisher's maroon buckram (some copies bound in brownish-orange buckram, no priority known), spine lettered in gilt, bottom edge untrimmed; beige dust jacket (Bloomfield calls it pale orange, but to my eye there is very little, if any, orange in it) printed in black, priced 21s. Possibly run off from the same plates as the first edition, with this copyright page still reading "First Published 1945," though this edition appeared in a larger format than the original (9 1/8'' x 5 5/8'' vs. 7 1/8 x 5"). A virtually pristine, unread copy, completely free of foxing and wear, in Fine jacket. Bloomfield A1(b). Originally published, by the Fortune Press, in 1945. This pirated edition, limited to 500 copies, was issued in advance of the authorized Faber & Faber release, which appeared in 1966 but was swiftly withdrawn when Larkin discovered its existence. By 1972, according to Bloomfield, the publisher still had 220 copies in stock, but these had no dust jackets, which "had inadvertently been destroyed." Larkin's first major collection of [31] poems, The North Ship is often criticised for its high-flown Yeatsian rhetoric, but it is, essentially, a wartime collection of poems and its significance lies primarily in its elegiac lyricism and withdrawn but tenacious sense of survival."
