        Electronic machinery for handling information, and its uses in insurance. Offprint

      1947. <p>Berkeley, Edmund C. (1909-88). Electronic machinery for handling information, and its uses in insurance. Offprint from Transactions of the Actuarial Society of America 48 (1947). 36-52pp. 228 x 153 mm. Original printed wrappers, a few tiny spots, almost invisible staple-holes in front wrapper. Very good copy. Former owner&#146;s name-stamp (Clifford J. Maloney) on wrappers. </p><p>First Edition, Offprint Issue. The first published paper on the commercial application of electronic / electromechanical computing in private industry (outside of the telephone company). Drawing on material that he would later publish in his famous Giant Brains or Machines that Think (1949), Berkeley described the four large-scale computing machines then in operation&#151;MIT&#146;s Differential Analyzer; Harvard&#146;s Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator; the Moore School&#146;s ENIAC; and Bell Laboratories&#146; Relay Calculator&#151;and discussed the machines&#146; information-processing capabilities and their potential uses in the insurance industry. &#147;It is natural to call these machines mechanical or electronic brains and to speak of them as machinery that thinks. This new machinery is certain to have far-reaching effects in all fields where the handling of information is the bulk of the work. . . . Much of the material in this paper is taken from a forthcoming book on the subject by the present writer, and is used by special permission of the publisher&#148; (p. 36). </p><p>Berkeley, a seminal figure in the history of modern computing, was introduced to computing (using punched-card machine methods) while working as an actuary at Prudential Insurance. In 1942 he joined the Navy and was assigned to the Harvard Computation Laboratory, where he worked with Howard Aiken on the Harvard Mark II. In 1946 Berkeley returned to Prudential where he helped create a prototype premium billing trial for the Harvard Mark I and participated in studies that led to Prudential&#146;s purchase of one of the first UNIVAC I computers. He also began working on Giant Brains and in 1947 founded the Association for Computing Machinery. In 1948 he left Prudential to found his own company, and in 1951 he began editing and publishing Computers and Automation (later renamed Computers and People), the first periodical specifically devoted to computing. He also headed his own publishing firm, consulted for industry, and invented and sold several build-it-yourself electronic computers and small robots (Simon, Squee, Tyniac, Brainiac, etc.) as educational tools. In his later years he became known as the conscience of the computer industry through his often-expressed belief that computers should be used not for military or destructive purposes, but only for the benefit of society. </p>

        [Typescript]: Summer and Smoke

      January 1947. Carbon typescript. Quarto. (4), 147, (1)pp. Sheets bradbound in the blue "Liebling-Wood" folder of Williams&#39;s agent, Audrey Wood. The light blue wrappers are moderately worn with wear to the extremities with tears and chips, the page ends are also worn, and the brads have pulled through the front wrap and part of the first page, about very good. The typescript for Williams&#39;s 1948 play about a refined minister&#39;s daughter from Glorious Hill, Mississippi, who falls for the unsophisticated young doctor who lives next door.This early version of the play, labeled "January 1947," is the one used during its first production in Dallas, Texas, in July 1947 by Margo Jones, before its New York debut in October of the following year. Though it ran for 102 weeks it was considered something of a disappointment as a follow-up to Williams&#39;s incredibly successful A Streetcar Named Desire" which immediately preceded it. The play was revived in 1952 off Broadway with a now legendary performance by Geraldine Page as Alva, and was later made into a 1962 film directed by Peter Glenville with Laurence Harvey, Rita Moreno, and Page, who received an Oscar nomination for best actress. .

        Autograph Note Signed

      Lenox, [Mass.], oct. 13, 1947. 8-3/4 x 6-1/4 inches. Pen and ink on paper. Binding holes in left margin, else fine . "Your pictures were good seventeen years ago, the were excellent ten years ago and they are wonderful now. I hope we will be here in another ten, twenty and thirty years from now; you taking pictures, me admiring them and raving that they are magnificent, superb, unsurpassed, in short: not bad, not bad at all. "With best wishes "Stefan Lorant "Lenox, Oct. 13, 1947" Stefan Lorant (1901-1997) is widely acknowledged as a founder of modern pictorial journalism. Born into a family of studio photographers in Budapest, he pursued a career in silent-film making in Vienna and Berlin, then went on to both found and edit illustrated magazines in Germany, Hungary, and England. As editor of the Münchner Illustrierte Presse, Lorant transformed it into the first modern photojournalistic paper in Europe; his political commentaries after the Nazi putsch in 1933 enraged Hitler, who ordered him imprisoned. A year later, he was released through the intercession of the Hungarian government and began editing a paper in Budapest. Lorant wrote a memoir, I Was Hitler's Prisoner, and took the manuscript to London; it was published in 1935. Lorant became editor of Odham's Weekly Illustrated and then the influential British magazine Picture Post. "His innovative layouts, his 'exclusive' interviews and thirst for knowledge became a familiar part of millions of everyday lives, largely through his own creations, and in particular the legendary media icon Picture Post. His vision of photography as a documentary medium inspired Life and Look magazines in America" (biographer Michael Hallett). In 1940 he came to America where he wrote and edited pictorial history books, including the noted Lincoln: His Life in Photographs

        POSTER - Plaza de Toros de Vista-Alegre. - Bilbao

      1947 - This is not a book but a wonderfully colourful ORIGINAL 1946 Spanish Bullfighting Poster. Measuring 107cm x 54cm, it is by J. Reus and it advertises a bullfighting event in Bilbao for 5 October 1947 starring the matadors Jose Gomez Gallito de Dos Hermanas, Manuel Franco Cardeno and Antonio Chaves Flores. The poster was printed by Ortega of Valencia and it bears the printer's name at the bottom and also the square stamp of authenticity to the lower right side with a print number of 1588. The brittle poster, whilst all original, has folds and creases, as well as light damage to the top edge. All of this could be rectified by a skilled archivist and, of course, the poster would be best conserved by professional linen-backing. We believe that few of these would have survived so long in anything approaching collectable condition, as they were meant to be pasted up on billboards. Our shop acquired this poster (one of a collection of 5) many years ago from a customer who used to live in Spain. We're now having a clear out of our basement and we have decided to put it on sale internationally. The poster will be sent, well packed, in a sturdy tube. Please note that by selling such a piece of original art, we do not necessarily approve of or support the sport of bullfighting.

      TENNESSEE NEW CALEDONIA GUADALCANAL SOUTH PACIFIC 1947 - On offer is a sensational relic of World War II being a photographic diary with accompanying typescript journal commentary by an unidentified soldier from Tennessee. The Marine did a brilliant job putting together a handmade diary illustrated with two groups of photographs [the kind you might have gotten in the PX during the War]. Our sense is that the author has either returned to the area or hasn't yet left the arena of the War but soon after the War our author begins this charming retelling of experiences both good and terrible in the South Pacific. He uses twenty-five photographs and then details and stories relating to the people he was with or the scenes depicted in the photos. It is heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. The soldier does not tell us his name but he makes references to being from Tennessee. He writes of taking a ship to New Caledonia and of people he worked with and situations he encountered. A great deal of his time was spent in Guadalcanal. In one moving passage he tells the story of his friend and mentor Howard H. [Gabby] Gould III; a soldier during World War I who reenlisted after Pearl Harbor. He became a drill sergeant and then made his way to New Caledonia. There he learned that he was considered unfit for overseas duty. Heartbreakingly Gabby dies of a broken heart 2 weeks after being shipped stateside. This is one of the most unique WWII relics we have come across. VG+. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall

      Reynal & Hitchcock New York 1947 - 8vo., First US Edition; cloth, covers very slightly faded else a very good, bright, clean copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the whole housed in a calf solander case with gilt back and marbled edges. A SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY TO DAVID LOW, WITH THE AUTHOR'S HOLOGRAPH INSCRIPTION DATED 1947 ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. This scarce collection (the author's first book and sole collection of verse) contains the structured poem 'Lessons of War', Part I of which, 'Naming of Parts', is arguably the most famous poem to emerge from WWII. It also contains the famous T S Eliot parody 'Chard Whitlow'. PRESENTATION COPIES ARE EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE. THIS ONE IS TO DAVID LOW, LEADING BRITISH POLITICAL CARTOONIST AND CREATOR OF 'COLONEL BLIMP'. A New Zealander by birth, Sir David Low (1919-1963) arrived in Britain in 1919 to progress his fledgling career as a political illustrator. In his early years in Britain he worked with a variety of publications including the 'Star', 'New Statesmen', 'Punch' and 'The Graphic'. In 1927 he was invited by Lord Beaverbrook to join London's 'Evening Standard' and the rest is history. A staunch anti-fascist, Low used the scaithing and incisive poweer of his cartoons to attack the complacency of the British establishment in the 30s; in 1934 he created in Colonel Blimp' one of the most famous figures in newspaper cartoon history. His work was swiftly banned in both Germany and Italy and after the outbreak of war several of his cartoons were used to inspire the British people during the darker days at the beginning of the conlfict. Low was appointed an official War Artist and as such attended the Nuremberg War Trials. He was knighted in 1962. Many of Low's cartoons were published in book form, the most famous collections being 'Low's Political Parade with Colonel Blimp (1936) and 'Europe at War' (1941). His most famous character was the basis of 'The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp' (Powell & Pressburger, 1936), one of the most important feature films in the history of British cinema. A UNIQUE AND PARTICULARLY APPROPRIATE ASSOCIATION COPY IN THE CONTEXT OF WWII. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
