The Automatic Sequence Controlled calculator was also known as the Mark I. "The electromechanical Harvard Mark I was the first programmable calculating machine to actually produce mathematical tables, fulfilling the dream of Charles Babbage originally set out in print in 1822." Grace Hopper was one of a few prominent women working in computers at the time - she was chief programmer for the Mark I. (Origins of Cyberspace 411 & 412). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Paterson

      (New York): New Directions. (1946, 1948, 1949, 1951, 1958). First. First editions. Five volumes. A somewhat worn set of the first editions, lacking the dustwrappers. Poet and critic Karl Shapiro's copies with his ownership signature in each of the first four volumes and his notes in each volume. Shapiro has marked the number of each volume (in Roman numerals) on the front board and on the spine. Shapiro was an important if not easily classifiable poet. He rejected both the "new criticism" and the pragmatists and instead settled on Walt Whitman and William Carlos Williams as his models for great American poetry. His championship of Williams' poetry, and particularly of Paterson, was influential in establishing the high regard in which the work is now held. A magnificent association copy of one of the great American poem cycles. Connolly 100. .

Underneath the inscription, Erle Stanley Gardner has added his full signature followed by the date: June 1946. Tee Rose, a young writer from San Francisco, became a lifelong friend of ESG and she always received Gardner's latest book in the mail -- usually immediately upon publication.

Terry Clane is a government secret agent who has harnessed some of the spiritual power of his Far East experiences to deal some very deadly mysteries in San Francisco's Chinatown. . Signed by Author.

        Heed the Thunder

      Greenberg, New York 1946 - First edition. A fairly worn, but presentable, good only copy lacking the dustwrapper. This copy Inscribed by the author in pencil: "For Lois and Jim[?] very gratefully Jim Thompson 2-20-46." We do not know who the recipients were, but curiously, the dedicatees were Lois and Elliott McDowell. Whether this is the same Lois, with another companion is not immediately clear to us. Books signed by Thompson are very rare. We have sold three other books signed by Thompson in the past 20 years, and of those, two were considerably later paperback titles. The only other inscribed hardcover was another copy of this title inscribed about ten months after this one, thus making this the earliest inscribed Thompson book we have seen. To put it in context, we have handled more books signed by either J.D. Salinger or Thomas Pynchon than we have of Thompson. A superb copy of an exceptionally uncommon book, the second of only three hardcover novels published during the hardboiled author's lifetime. See this book in 3D on our site.

        ALL THE KING'S MEN

      NY: Harcourt Brace & Co., (1946) - First Edition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning modern literary classic, a highspot of modern literature. The landmark novel, more than loosely based on the career of famed Louisiana governor Huey Long, was the basis for the 1949 Academy Award-winning film (which took Oscars for Best Picture, and for actors Broderick Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge). A new film adaptation opened late in 2005, starred Sean Penn, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, James Gandolfini and Anthony Hopkins. First Editions of this scarce title are rare indeed, and a copy of this extraordinary quality would be hard to beat. A lovely, perfectly fine copy in an extremely close to fine dust jacket, bright, crisp, non-price-clipped, and with the most miniscule, barely noticeable, shallow chipping -- hardly discernable -- and only to the top fold of the front panel. All The King's Men lists at #36 on the Random House/Modern Library 100 Best Books of the Century. It is highly unlikely a finer copy can be found. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        LE MIRACLE DE LA ROSE.

      1946 - Sans lieu [Lyon], L'Arbalète, sans date [30 mars 1946]. Fort in-quarto (235 X 288) reliure toile crème de l'éditeur, nom de l'auteur imprimé en rouge au dos ; 537 pages. EDITION ORIGINALE au tirage limité à 475 EXEMPLAIRES numérotés sur pur fil RIVES filigrané "L'ARBALETE", tous réservés aux souscripteurs. Composé en caractères Romain Bodoni de corps dix-huit, l'ouvrage a été tiré sur la presse à bras de Marc BARBEZAT ; il est imprimé en deux encres, rouge et noire. De "Miracle de la rose", le seul de ses romans dont la publication ne fut pas clandestine, Genet disait : "Ce livre est le meilleur de mon c?ur.". Rédigé en 1943 dans les prisons de la Santé et des Tourelles [cet ouvrage] se présente comme un poème autobiographique et une fiction testamentaire : essai de récapitulation et de transfiguration d'une vie, ultime tentative d'un prisonnier pour s'instituer, par l'écriture, maître de son destin. Mais plus encore sans doute que de sa singularité, cette entreprise tire sa force essentielle d'avoir su faire entendre, à l'intérieur d'une oeuvre de la plus haute tenue littéraire, écrite dans une langue incomparablement savante et raffinée, une voix inconciliable, brutale, d'une extrême nudité : celle des "Enfants du malheur" - titre initial de "Miracle de la rose" - au nom desquels Genet parle solitairement. (En français dans le texte, 390). BELLE REALISATION TYPOGRAPHIQUE de Marc BARBEZAT. Piqures sur les plats, néanmoins BEL EXEMPLAIRE, le corps de l'ouvrage étant en parfait état. NICE COPY.

        Williwaw.

      Dutton, New York 1946 - First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed by the author on the half title page. Very good plus in a very good dust jacket. Williwaw was Gore Vidal's first publication, and it earned him the reputation as "the best all-around American man of letters since Edmund Wilson"(Newsweek). The military novel marked the beginning of his writing career, aged twenty-one, and is based upon his Alaskan Harbor Detachment duty. Williwaw is a quasi-autobiographical novel, and its value comprises not merely Vidal's excellent writing but the insight it offers into the author's experiences.
