        The Wayward Pressman

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday and Company, 1947 First edition. Inscribed by Liebling on the front free endpaper: "For Alfred Byers / A. J. Liebling". Publisher's gray cloth, lettered in dark green; in the original pictorial dust jacket, with a red, dark green and white title label over a newspaper background in gray and black, lettered in white and dark green. Very good, with some wear and rubbing to the extremities, light rubbing to the boards, bright and clean interior; price-clipped dust jacket, with some wear and nicks to the extremities, jacket splitting at the flaps but still intact, light toning to the spine, minor soiling to the rear panel. Overall, a bright and presentable copy. Inscriptions by Liebling are extremely rare. The Wayward Pressman is a collection of A. J. Libeling's newspaper articles in which he reflects on his "life with newspapers," which "began long before [he] first worked on one, in 1925." This collection takes its title from The New Yorker's "The Wayward Press," a column analyzing American journalism, originally written by humorist Robert Benchley. Liebling took over the column in 1945, and, although he wrote hundreds of articles for The New Yorker, it is the 82 pieces he wrote for this column that Liebling is best remembered. In The Wayward Press, Liebling addresses his own affinity for newspapers, the differences between newspapers and other printed texts, and the role of the journalist in society, in addition to his evaluations of the priorities and performances of various American newspapers. Himself an avid newspaper reader, Liebling infuses his Wayward Press pieces with his own passion and "affectionate needling," making the column well-written, insightful, and extremely entertaining.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

      New York The Vanguard Press, Inc. 1947 - First Edition, In Dust Jacket BELLOW, Saul. The Victim. New York: The Vanguard Press, Inc., [1947]. First edition. Octavo (8 1/8 x 5 1/2 inches; 205 x 140 mm). [8], [1]-294, [2, blank] pp. Original full black cloth, blue lettering on spine. Top edge blue, fore-edge uncut. With original pictorial dust jacket. Sight foxing to endpapers and inner flaps of the dust jacket. Back panel of the dust jacket with a small closed tear. Otherwise near fine. This author’s first two books (Dangling Man and The Victim, 1947) had a profound impact on the mid-twentieth century literary scene. "Together, they effectively introduced a new style of American fiction. The "Gentile" era of Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and Faulkner began, with Bellow, to give way to a new Jewish tradition and a sense of moral and social alarm. Bellow’s characters are generally anti-heroes caught up in the existential dilemma of trying to define themselves with some measure of dignity despite the constant impediments of objective and subjective circumstances." (Benet’s The Reader’s Encyclopedia, fourth edition.) Bellow is the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize (for Humbolt’s Gift, 1975,) and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1976.

        Research in Germany on the technical application of atomic energy. Offprint

      1947. <p>Heisenberg, Werner (1901-76). Research in Germany on the technical application of atomic energy. Offprint from Nature 160 (1947). 10, [1]pp. 212 x 145 mm. Without wrappers as issued. Fine copy.</p> <p>First Edition in English, Offprint Issue. During World War II Heisenberg was one of the principal scientists leading research and development in Germany&#146;s nuclear energy program. At that time the Allies had no idea of how far Germany had progressed in the quest to build a nuclear reactor, but given Germany&#146;s leading role in the advancement of nuclear physics they had every reason to believe that the Nazis were ahead of the game&#151;in fact, the fear of a German &#147;atom bomb&#148; was one of the main reasons behind the establishment of the Manhattan Project. This fear turned out to be groundless: Due to a combination of factors, including Hitler&#146;s dislike of &#147;Jewish science&#148; and the &#147;White Jew&#148; Heisenberg, Germany had fallen far behind the United States in the development of nuclear energy.</p> <p>fter the bombing of Hiroshima Heisenberg became one of the primary crafters of Germany&#146;s official account of its wartime nuclear energy program. In December 1946 he published his first postwar summary of the program in the journal Naturwissenschaften; the present English translation, slightly abridged from the German, appeared in Nature the following August. In the summary Heisenberg argued that Germany&#146;s failure to advance its nuclear program was due both to enormous technical difficulties and to the lack of political and financial support; he also played up his own role in slowing down the project by quashing Nazi officials&#146; hopes for the imminent development of atomic weapons. &#147;Heisenberg&#146;s self-serving account parallels but overinterprets actual events. He especially did try to maintain scientific control over the [nuclear energy] project. He was also aware of the theoretical possibility of a nuclear explosive by late 1941, he did not demand a crash research and development to build one, and he did seem content to work for the rest of the war on the more modest program of building a reactor. It is difficult to assess his intentions and motives beyond that. But from what we know of his activities and research, there is nothing to support the notion that Heisenberg actually hindered the project in any way to keep an explosive out of Hitler&#146;s hands or even that he himself had that much control of the situation&#148; (Cassidy, Uncertainty: The Life and Science of Werner Heisenberg, p. 510).</p>

      New York: Samuel French. (1947). First. First edition. Fine in fine, white dustwrapper illustrated with a depiction of the original Broadway cast by Al Hirschfeld. A very uncommon play, and the basis for the 1948 Fred M. Wilcox film Three Daring Daughters featuring Jeanette MacDonald, Jose Iturbi, Jane Powell, and Edward Arnold. Kohner was a fascinating character -- a friend of Kafka&#39;s in his youth, and later the creator of the archetypal teenage tomboy Gidget, based on his own surf-crazed daughter. Curiously enough, at the same time another European emigre, Vladimir Nabokov, was writing another book about an American girl archetype -- Lolita. Very scarce. .

Built in 1947 on his Finca La Vigia property in San Francisco de Paula, Cuba, at the suggestion of Mary Hemingway, the four story ?White Tower? was a place to house their 30 cats, getting them out of the main house, and a place for her husband to write.

Herrera and Hemingway met in 1942, when Herrera became a crewmember aboard Hemingway?s boat the ?Pilar?, at the height of World War II, when Hemingway patrolled the Gulf Stream for German submarines for the US Government.

Octavo, original burgundy cloth with titles in gilt. An excellent copy with light wear to the boards, else near fine. Lacking the rare dust jacket. Signed "Paul A. Samuelson MIT" on the title page. Rare, especially signed. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box.Paul Samuelson is one of the developers of both neo-Keynesian and neoclassical economics, the latter of which still dominates mainstream economics. He was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1970 for having written considerable parts of economic theory. The title of this work "was meant to be exactly as ambitious as it sounds, and the book&#39;s impact on the profession has largely justified it&#133; For the first time in a book in English on economic principles, the mathematics, instead of being relegated to an appendix, provided the skeleton of the argument&#133; Fifty years after it was written, the Foundations (together with Hicks&#39; Value and Capital) is still one of the most inspiring classics of general equilibrium economics (Niehans, History of Economic Theory, 423).

      Macmillan, New York 1947 - Michener's first book and winner of the Pulitzer Prize. This copy with a very early INSCRIPTION dated 27 May 1947 SIGNED by the author: "Dear Jim,/The first serious writing I/did came your way. This one/had a better fortune, thanks to the/passing of time and some millions of/acres of the Pacific. It's been a treat knowing you./Jim Michener." We can only speculate who Jim was, but obviously he was of some importance to Michener very early in his career. The brittleness of the cheap paper, found in every copy we have seen, is much in evidence with a very short tear at the top margin running through nearly every page of the book. The covers also have short tears near the spine at the top and bottom. The upper front corner is bumped, and a darker shade at the very head of the spine indicates that a dustwrapper was present on this book for quite some time. All that is left is the rear flap which is laid in. Housed in a handsome and recent navy blue half morocco clamshell box. Good copy only, but a great, early inscription [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
