        Le cas De Gaulle

      Paris, Les iles d'or, 1947., 1947. Broché, couverture factice, titre manuscrit.. 14/21 cm., 92 pp.. Epreuve corigée de ce livre qui semble ne jamais avoir paru, nombreuses annotations en marge, compris des ajouts de la main de l'Auteur. Ce livre n'est présent dans aucune bibliographie de Louis Rougier. Très bon état. Louis Rougier, né à Lyon le 10 avril 1889, mort à Paris le 14 octobre 1982 est un universitaire français, professeur de philosophie. Agrégé de philosophie en 1915. Il enseigne la philosophie et les mathématiques au lycée d'Alger à partir de 1917 puis à l'Université de Caen en 1959. Au milieu des années 1920, il dirige une collection, « Civilisation et Christianisme », chez André Delpeuch. D'abord ardent opposant des idées libérales et du capitalisme il devient finalement un des promoteurs du libéralisme, profondément anti-chrétien, Louis Rougier met en avant « l'intransigeance antipatriotique et subversive des communautés, qui tendaient à devenir un Etat dans l'Etat » Mis en cause pour son attitude à l'égard du régime de Vichy, il publie après-guerre des livres anti-gaullistes, comme "Le Bilan du gaullisme". Proche des milieux néo-pétainistes, il est membre du comité directeur de l'Association pour la défense de la mémoire du maréchal Pétain . Il avait dirigé à New York un journal en langue française dont le titre était "Pour la Victoire", qui parut de 1942 à 1945, il y attaquait violemment l'Allemagne nazie, dans l'un d'eux il y accusait notamment Hitler de mener une « guerre zoologique ». Dans un autre, paru entre fin 1943 et début 1944, il accuse l'Allemagne de génocider des populations entières, essentiellement juives et tziganes, en les asphyxiant dans des chambres à gaz.

Signed by Williams and actress Jessica Tandy on the front endpaper. Only a mere 5,080 copies were printed.

Unquestionably one of the great masterpieces of modern American drama and the first play to win Williams a Pulitzer Prize.

        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>

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. .

      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
