        The Second World War

      London: Cassell & Co. Ltd.,, 1948?54. [The Gathering Storm; Their Finest Hour; The Grand Alliance; The Hinge of Fate; Closing the Ring; Triumph and Tragedy.] 6 volumes, octavo. Recent burgundy morocco, titles and decoration to spines gilt, rule to boards gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With diagrams and tables throughout the text. The occasional minor blemish, an excellent set. First editions of Churchill's masterpiece, the single most important historical account of the Second World War. As Max Beloff observed, there was no statesman of the twentieth century "whose retrospective accounts of the great events in which he has taken part have so dominated subsequent historical thinking". A man who had always primarily made his living by his pen, Churchill was the only major war leader to give an authoritative account of the conflict, and his ringing phrases seeped into the collective memory. As J. H. Plumb noted: "Churchill the historian lies at the very heart of all historiography of the Second World War, and will always remain there? [we still] move down the broad avenues which he drove through war's confusion and complexity.

      Paris: Hermann & Cie. First edition. original wrappers. Very Good. FIRST EDITION of one of the foundational works of modern communication theory. "In Cybernetics, Wiener described a new way of looking at how the world functioned, based on his research on the way in which information is transmitted and processed. He saw a world that focused on information, not energy; and on digital or numeric processes, not machine or analog. His theories not only laid the foundation for this new field of study, they also largely predicted the future development of computers. The book had an immediate impact; terms such as input, feedback and output, in common use today, were first introduced in Cybernetics" (Sonia Weiss). "The term cybernetics comes from the ancient Greek word kybernetikos ('good at steering'), referring to the art of the helmsman. In the first half of the 19th century, the French physicist Andre-Marie Ampere, in his classification of the sciences, suggested that the still nonexistent science of the control of governments be called cybernetics. The term was soon forgotten, however, and it was not used again until the American mathematician Norbert Wiener published his book Cybernetics in 1948. In that book Wiener made reference to an 1868 article by the British physicist James Clerk Maxwell on governors and pointed out that the term governor is derived, via Latin, from the same Greek word that gives rise to cybernetics. The date of Wiener's publication is generally accepted as marking the birth of cybernetics as an independent science" (Britannica). Note: This rare Paris printing precedes the more common American (NY) printing. Paris: Hermann & Cie, 1948. Octavo, original printed wrappers; glassine; custom box. A little bit of edgewear and light toning to spine and extremities. Overall an outstanding copy of a notoriously fragile first edition.

Essentially the entire history of the founding of the Blake Trust and the Trianon Press, from the earliest days discussing financial and legal arrangements through the production details for every book up to and including “Europe”. All the reports are signed by Geoffrey Keynes in his distinctive brown ink, and the text is annotated and otherwise added to by Arnold Fawcus in his distinctive green ink. An archival item of great importance, documenting the publishing history of one of the greatest venture of the 20th century. As the TLS noted, nothing like these books had ever been made before nor was ever likely to be made again. Reading the account of the creating of the Blake Trust as well as Fawcus’s other ventures (all of which teetered constantly on the edge of bankruptcy), this minute book proves fascinating as it provides the dry details of the Board meetings with Fawcus, Keynes, Goyder, Preston and later Rosenwald and Mellon. A biographical note records: “The series of extraordinary facsimiles of watercolor works by Cezanne were seen by Geoffrey Keynes, at an exhibit in Boston. Sir Geoffrey inquired of Arnold whether or not he might be able to produce quality reproduction in collotype and pochoir work for one of the most important, most astonishing illuminated works in engraving and literary history, Blake's Jerusalem. The estimate, at the uneconomical low price of 4,000 pounds for 500 copies of the unique Jerusalem, led to what might be called a corporate venture into sublime achievement. An original subvention of approximately L15,000, which was granted by Sir Geoffrey's old friend, Graham Robertson, provided, title by title, the support and publication of each volume of The Trianon Press. Sir Geoffrey formed and directed the affairs of The William Blake Trust, the official body which selected and commissioned each title. Arnold and his Press produced a remarkable sequence of works without rival. The facsimiles of Blake are of such quality that they could scarcely be detected from the original works held by such connoisseurs as Lessing J. Rosenwald and Paul Mellon.”
