        Calculating Machines: Recent & Prospective Developments

      Cambridge Cambridge University Press 1947 - Octavo. Original cream wrappers printed in brown. 2 plates from photographs, equations and charts within the text. Near-contemporary ownership inscription to the title. Wrappers a little toned, a couple of tiny dents to the upper wrapper. A fresh and attractive copy in excellent condition. First edition, first impression and a lovely copy of "the first booklet on electronic computers separately published by a conventional publisher, and also one of the earliest discussions of how these machines could be used in scientific calculations" (Origins of Cyberspace 649). In addition to his significant contributions to ballistics and quantum theory, British mathematician Douglas Hartree (1897-1958) was also a leader in efforts to automate scientific calculations. He was "involved in the development of the digital electronic computer, which emerged from wartime attempts to automate calculation further. In 1946 Hartree's advice was sought in the application of the United States army's ENIAC (electronic numerical integrator and computer) to the production of ballistic tables" (ODNB). This booklet was based on his experience with ENIAC, and describes in detail the machine's operation, its memory capacity, how problems are encoded for it to process, and what types of mathematical questions it is currently addressing. It also offers hints of future applications, such as research in fluid dynamics, statistics, number theory, and economics, where the burden of manual calculation was previously too great to allow in-depth analysis.

      1947. Albert Herring was first performed at Glyndebourne on June 20, 1947, with the composer conducting.Britten, a composer, conductor, and pianist, was a dominant force in English art music of the 20th century.

Folio (ca. 254 x 203 mm). Dated July 30, 1966. On stationery with "The Red House, Aldeburgh, Suffolk" printed at head. Britten thanks Mrs. Koster for sending him the program of a performance of Albert Herring at the New England Conservatory. He is glad she is enjoying her teaching at the Conservatory, and sends "best wishes from myself and Peter Pears.""I was very touched that the performers should all sign the programme for me, and I would be very glad if you would thank them warmly. I am glad that your account of the performance was so favourable, because it cannot be easy for people who live so far from East Suffolk to catch its spirit. The arrival into the garden sounds something very special!"Slightly worn; creased at folds; very small perforation and short tear to blank upper margin, not affecting text.

        PRIVATELY PUBLISHED POETRY ABOUT THE INTERNMENT DURING WWII: Vojna vihra. Kitice iz internacije. Niti za slavo niti za denar. [Maelstrom of War. Rimes from Internment. Not for glory, nor for money ]

      Nova Stifta, Slovenia: [by the author] . 1947 - 12°, [1] blank page, [1] mimeographed title page, signed by the author, 45 mimeographed text printed recto, original card cover with title printed in blue, blue linen spine (Very Good, slightly age-toned, first pages slightly water-stained, small tears in endpapers, cover and spine slightly scuffed on edges). A seemingly unrecorded booklet with Slovenian poetry, talks about WWII and internment in the work camp at Padua. This mimeographed booklet was published privately by the author Fran Fajdiga from Nova _tifta in Slovenia. The author talks in rimes about his difficult daily life in the work camp in Padua, and in other poems he talks about war situations between the Partisans, Germans and collaborators. The book seems to be unrecorded and was probably published in a very small quantity by the author. Fajdiga apperas in the records as a publisher of local postcards. As mentioned in his poetry he was about 60 years old in 1947 and was an amateur poet.
