1946. Condition: Très bon état. Je mets en vente une splendide et rare collection privée qui regroupe la plupart des aventures parues dans le journal Tintin depuis l'année 1946. Elle comprend non seulement toutes les éditions originales, mais également les seconde et troisième éditions des séries les plus emblématiques du célèbre hebdomadaire. En tout, il y a plus de 400 livres!!! Le collectionneur est un médecin qui a commencé sa collection au tout début des années 1970. Très peu d'amateurs ont cherché à constituer une compilation où chaque titre était collationné en plusieurs exemplaires déclinés en éditions belges et éditions françaises. La majorité des livres provient de la célèbre librairie Rackham à Paris, gage d'articles de très haute qualité. Les livres achetés au début ont été très souvent revendus pour permettre l'acquisition d'albums de meilleure qualité. Encore une fois, il s'agit d'une collection qui existe très certainement en un très petit nombre d'exemplaires que ce soit en France ou en Belgique, L'état de chaque album est en règle générale très bon, voire excellent. La plupart ont la particularité d'avoir leur point Tintin, ce qui est très rare. Et pour clôturer le tout la série complète du journal Tintin français sera aussi mise à la vente, c'est à dire depuis le numéro 1 du 28 octobre 1948 au numéro 1262 du 4 janvier 1973, ainsi que les 3 premières années (1946 à 1948) du journal Tintin belge On retrouvera les aventures suivantes : Blake et Mortimer Michel Vaillant Barelli Alix Lefranc Chick Bill Ric Hochet Chlorophylle Bob et Bobette Pom et Teddy Corenti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bertrand Russell
UK: George Allen and Unwin, 1946. 1st Edition 1946. Proof copy. Very rare. This would have been printed before the trade ediiton. Divided into three books, Ancient Philosophy, Catholic Philosophy and Modern Philosophy, this was a hugely successful book which has remained in print since its original issue and was cited as one of the main contributions to Russell winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950. However given its wide sweep of history it was criticised for over simplification and generalisation, perhaps an inevitable consequence of attempting to condense 2000 years of philosophy into 900 pages. The softcover book is very good++ with bright soft cover wraps. Small inscription to top corner of the front cover. Edges rubbed. Contents good. More images can be taken upon request. Ref . First Edition. Original Wraps. Very Good ++. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

CAMUS, Albert.
London: Hamish Hamilton, 1946. 8vo., original blue-grey cloth with lettering in gilt to spine; pictorial dust wrapper designed by Edward Bawden; [ii], 104, [ii]; some light spotting and browning to jacket; light fading to spine and spotting to edges; head and foot of spine jacket with some nicks and tape repairs to underside; this still remains a very good copy which has retained much of its colour. First English edition translated by Stuart Gilbert with an introduction by Cyril Connolly. The Outsider, or 'L'Etranger' (The Stranger), was Camus’ first book to be translated into English. The introduction was written by Cyril Connolly, who chose this book as one of his 100 key books of the Modern Movement. A contemporary classic, it helped to define the literature of alienation and the absurd in the post-war world. Through the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach, Camus explores what he termed 'the nakedness of man faced with the absurd'.

Kazantzakis, Nikos
Plateia Syntagmatos, Athens, 1946. First Greek edition, preceding all other editions of the author's most popular novel and basis for the Oscar-winning film starring Anthony Quinn. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers as issued. Signed by Nikos Kazantzakis on the copyright page. In near fine condition with some rubbing to the spine and small closed tears. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. First editions of Zorba The Greek are of legendary scarcity; this is one of the nicest examples we have seen or handled. Zorba the Greek is the epic tale of a young Greek intellectual who ventures to escape his bookish life with the aid of the boisterous and mysterious Alexis Zorba. Kazantzakis has made a work of stunning genius. The book is about life. How does one live it? How does one deal with the vicissitudes of it? The tragedies? The failures? Does one stand on the sidelines of life and never jump in? Does one fear getting married or fear having children or fear doing any activity that could fail or come to naught? Zorba tells us what to do. And in the end, when the whole bloody mess comes falling down around us, and all our plans and schemes are for naught, what do you do? Dance. Dance as hard and as wild as you can. Spit and fume and sing and smash your heels into the dirt. And laugh at it all. the absurdity of worry and wondering. Zorba shows us the joy of just "being" and "doing". It is basis for the 1964 Oscar-winning film directed by Michael Cacoyannis, starring Anthony Quinn, Alan Bates, Lila Kedrova, Irene Papas, and Sotiris Moustakas, with music by Mikis Theodo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Post Office Research Station, London, 1946. Coombs, Allen W. M. (1911-95); William W. Chandler; Thomas H. Flowers (1905-88); W. Gordon Radley. Research report no. 12719. Automatic computing: An analysis of arithmetical operations. Mimeograph typescript. 29pp., including diagrams. Dollis Hills, London: Post Office Research Station, August 1946. 281 x 219 mm. Original printed wrappers, chipped and frayed at spine, traces of label removal on right margin of front wrapper, ink inscriptions and stamp ca. 1946 on front wrapper. Very good. Bookplate of Erwin Tomash. First Edition. In early 1946 Tommy Flowers, designer of the Colossus, the code-breaking computer built at Bletchley Park during World War II, was chosen to organize the construction of Turing's ACE (Automatic Computing Engine) computer at the Post Office Research Station at Dollis Hills, with Coombs and Chandler as the other members of the team. Flowers initially believed that a basic version of the ACE could be ready by August or September 1946; however, the project was considerably delayed due to manpower shortages and Turing's numerous revisions of the computer's logical design. This is the first edition of one of the extremely rare early reports on ACE that Turing began designing for the National Physical Laboratory in late 1945. All of the authors of this report had worked with Turing at Bletchley Park, where Flowers, Coombs and Chandler served as leaders of the secret wartime codebreaking project that in 1943 produced the Colossus Mark I, the world's first electronic digital computer.

Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1946. First Edition. [2 - blank], [14], [1]-561, [3 blank] pages. Plus 17 additional full page plates. Publisher's blue cloth. Thick quarto (8 x 10 3/4 inches). Received stamp (23 Jul 1947) of the HM Nautical Almanac Office (marked through) and inked number on front flyleaf, otherwise clean and bright. Corners bumped, overall light wear to the binding. Clean internally, a nice copy. Cloth. The first volume of the important series Annals of the Computation Laboratory of Harvard University. When the electromechanical Harvard Mark I (Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator) became operational in 1944, it was "the first programmable calculating machine to actually produce mathematical tables, fulfilling the dream of Charles Babbage originally set out in print in 1822." (OOC 411) Its then-unique Manual was no less significant. In the words of computer historian Paul Ceruzzi, the Manual was: "a milepost that marked the state of the art of machine computation at one of its critical places: where, for the first time, machines could automatically evaluate arbitrary sequences of arithmetic operations. Most of this volume . . . consists of descriptions of the Mark I's components, its architecture, and operational codes for directing it to solve typical problems. . . . The Manual is one of the first places where sequences of arithmetic operations for the solution of numeric problems by machine were explicitly spelled out. It is furthermore the first extended analysis of what is now known as computer programming since Charles Babbage' … [Click Below for Full Description]

Volume 2 - An Exotic Drinking Book - Signed and Dated to good friend Clara Lang Volume 1 - An Exotic Cookery Book - Signed and Dated to good friend Clara Lang 1st Crown Edition - 1946 Free Shipping Please see pictures for more detail Charles Henry Baker Jr. (December 25, 1895 - November 11, 1987) was an American author best known for his culinary and cocktail writings. These books have become highly collectible among cocktail aficionados and culinary historians. He was born on Christmas Day in 1895 in Zellwood, Florida to Jane Paul Baker (1859-1916) and Charles Henry Baker Sr. (1848-1924). Both of his parents were from Pennsylvania.[3] He later attended Trinity College.[1] By 1918, he was working at Norton Abrasives as a grinder in Worcester, Massachusetts;[4] he later worked as a district sales manager.[5] He moved to New York City, where he worked as a magazine editor and submitted stories to small publications. In 1932, Baker met Pauline Elizabeth Paulsen, an heiress to the Paulsen mining fortune, on a world cruise where he had signed on as the cruise line's publicist. After they were married they had built for them an art deco house called Java Head in Coconut Grove, Florida in which they lived for thirty years. Baker spent much of his life traveling the world and chronicling food and drink recipes for magazines like Esquire, Town & Country, and Gourmet, for which he wrote a column during the 1940s called "Here's How". Baker collected many of those recipes in his two-volume set The Gentleman's Companion: Being … [Click Below for Full Description]

Percival Pernet
1946. Height 39.5" x Width 25.5" This very spirited poster was created for the World Championship of Motor Boat Racing held in Geneva, Switzerland in 1946. We see the high speed boats competing in the blue water of Lake Geneva. The event was scheduled for July 26 - 29 with the added information of there being a Grand Gala Evening on July 27. With this event coming so soon after the end of World War II it was very well received by the spectators who were seeking new events to support after the war. The artist of this poster is Percival Pernet (1890 - 1977) , unfortunately there is little information available about him. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.

A very scarce book of poetry by the Ukrainian poet Bogdan Bora (1920-97), written and published at a prison camp in Rimini, Italy, about one year after World War II. Bora had been captured by British forces and sent to the prison camp in Rimini, where he spent the following two years, and published three books of poetry including this collection, the title of which translated as "On the Road." Bora's poems, written in Ukrainian, are moving works, evocative of the turbulent era. The cover design and a full-page portrait of Bogdan Bora were made by fellow inmate Volodimir Kaplun. In 1947, Bora was moved to Britain, where he was given his freedom, and lived out the rest of his days. Very scarce. *OCLC* locates only six copies in institutional holdings worldwide.

Publisher's blue cloth. Thick quarto (8 x 10 3/4 inches). Received stamp (23 Jul 1947) of the HM Nautical Almanac Office (marked through) and inked number on front flyleaf, otherwise clean and bright. Corners bumped, overall light wear to the binding. Clean internally, a nice copy. Cloth. The first volume of the important series Annals of the Computation Laboratory of Harvard University. When the electromechanical Harvard Mark I (Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator) became operational in 1944, it was "the first programmable calculating machine to actually produce mathematical tables, fulfilling the dream of Charles Babbage originally set out in print in 1822." (OOC 411) Its then-unique Manual was no less significant. In the words of computer historian Paul Ceruzzi, the Manual was: "a milepost that marked the state of the art of machine computation at one of its critical places: where, for the first time, machines could automatically evaluate arbitrary sequences of arithmetic operations. Most of this volume . . . consists of descriptions of the Mark I's components, its architecture, and operational codes for directing it to solve typical problems. . . . The Manual is one of the first places where sequences of arithmetic operations for the solution of numeric problems by machine were explicitly spelled out.

Midway, Japan: 1946. A wooden box measuring 10.5 x 5.5" x 5" with "Midway 1942-44" written in black lettering across the top. The box is reinforced with tape at the corners and has a small hook closure. Contains 477 silver-gelatin photographs measuring between. ½" x. ½" and 4" x 5" some with captions, with some duplicates. The box is very good with rubbing, some mustiness and worn edges; the photographs are near fine with a bit of curling at the edges. A collection of photographs taken by a seaman while serving with the U.S. Navy between 1942 and 1946 housed in a custom made box, presumably crafted by the soldier. The photos are largely taken in the Pacific Theater with images from Midway as well as various places in Japan taken just after the war. They are accompanied by paper sleeves printed with "Official U.S. Navy Photograph" and some with penciled captions by the sailor who appears to have been a Navy press photographer. His photographer's eye can be seen throughout the images of wildlife and landscapes on the various islands he was stationed, as well as the portrait photographs of his fellow sailors, some in uniform, pith helmets, or shirtless in the Pacific heat. Others show images of men posed in their tents, in a makeshift office, setting up tents, and posed at the "press shack." Also photographed were locals in the various towns where they set up barracks captioned: "Okinawa working women, " "Okinawa women washing clothes, " and "Gooneys Midway." Sailors are seen posed with local women and children, captured in portrait style shots, and working in fields. Some of … [Click Below for Full Description]
