        Crusade in Europe.

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc.,, 1948. Octavo. Original tan linen cloth, bevelled edge boards, top edge gilt, untrimmed fore and bottom edges. Publisher's slipcase (repaired), signed by original owner, J. Wesley Pape (who also signed on the half-title). Bookseller's signature and sticker at bottom of front pastedown (John G. Kidd, Cincinnati). Front hinge weak, with cartographic endpapers split at the front pastedown gutter. Slight stain at bottom of spine. Overall, a good clean copy. Together with Pape's correspondence with the book's signatories: 28 typed letters signed from the signatories or their assistants, along with carbons of Pape's letters of solicitation. First edition, deluxe issue, number 555 of 1,426 copies; bound with a leaf that prints Eisenhower's D-Day message to the troops, signed by Eisenhower. The leaf was inserted into each of the deluxe issues, though in many it is lacking, having been cannibalized for sale by autograph dealers. This copy is also signed on the front flyleaf by Harry S. Truman, Winston S. Churchill, Anthony Eden, George C. Marshall, Henry H. Arnold, Walter Bedell Smith, James F. Byrnes and, on the facing flyleaf, Douglas MacArthur. The verso of Eisenhower's D-Day message bears the signatures of Omar Bradley and Bernard Law Montgomery (Viscount Alamein). Ten additional signatures appear in the book (usually on pages where the figures are first introduced in the narrative): Bernard M. Baruch, Mark W. Clark, Lucius D. Clay, James H. Doolittle, Mamie D. Eisenhower, Leonard T. Gerow, Cordell Hull, Joseph T. McNarney, Carl A. Spaatz, and Hoyt Vandenberg. Pape has helpfully annotated the index in pencil, noting the page numbers where signatures appear. The accompanying correspondence also includes original typed letters signed by: Dwight D. Eisenhower, Douglas MacArthur, Bernard Baruch, Carl Spaatz, Walter Bedell Smith, Henry "Hap" Arnold (twice), William H. Simpson (whose letter agrees to sign the volume, though he never managed to do so), Lucius D. Clay, Mark W. Clark, and Truman's press secretary, Matthew J. Connelly (tipped in to front flyleaf). An astounding gathering of the top statesmen and warriors of the Second World War, the signers include two American Presidents (Truman and Eisenhower), two British Prime Ministers (Churchill and Eden) and the leaders of the great land campaigns of North Africa and Western Europe: Montgomery of Alamein, Omar Bradley, and Mark Clark. The dominant general in the Pacific theatre, Douglas MacArthur, signed the book 18 months after Truman fired him for insubordination during the Korean War. Key diplomats are included, such as Cordell Hull, James F. Byrnes and Bernard Baruch, along with the architect of America's military strategy and Truman's then Secretary of Defense George C. Marshall. The heroes of the air war are represented by James Doolittle, who carried out the daring raid against Tokyo in 1942; as well as by Carl Spaatz and Hoyt Vandenberg. We know of no other example of such an impressive gathering of historic signatures from World War II. Almost as remarkable is the story of the man who spent nearly a decade collecting them. John Wesley Pape (1900?1986), of Cincinnati, Ohio, had ? by his own account, in a 12 May 1949 letter to Carl Spaatz ? "a very small part in this War," as a major on the headquarters staff of the Army Air Corps, overseeing procurement and supply. When Eisenhower published this memoir, Pape had the idea of giving a copy to his son, signed by as many of the leading figures of the war as he could reach. Like a well-organized staff officer, he preserved his correspondence with his signatories, and those letters make for compelling reading in their own right. Today, with top military and political figures barricaded behind multiple layers of security, it's astonishing how easily Pape was able to contact these VIPs, and how willingly and graciously they complied with his requests to sign and mail back his book (Pape helpfully provided postage paid packing). For many he provided specific instructions of where and how they should sign the book. "It is requested that General [Walter Bedell] Smith autograph Page 14, with rank during war and date signing." (But Smith chose instead to sign on the flyleaf below the signatures of Truman, Churchill and other top figures.) Several did follow instructions, such as Bernard Baruch, Gen. Joseph T. McNarney and Hoyt Vandenberg. Truman and George Marshall ? who signed as "One time Chief of Staff, U.S. Army" and "General of the Army" ?were the first two to sign. Having those names in the volume served as a good opening for fresh pitch letters. But how to get to someone as remote and prominent as Churchill? Pape turned to Eisenhower on 1 May 1950, asking his "advice and assistance?I realize this is an unusual request from a stranger." The next day Eisenhower replied in the succinct manner for which he was famous: "My suggestion is that you write him directly. He gets the same request many times a day and, I am sure, is quite used to it." Pape ultimately forged his own path to Churchill: he had an uncle, Thomas E. Hanlon, who knew Edward Viscount Knollys, who in turn was a friend of wartime cabinet member, Sir John Anderson; Anderson agreed to deliver the book to Churchill for signature. Montgomery, on the other hand, proved easy to obtain thanks to the initiative of his former comrade, General Omar Bradley. "It was no trouble at all to get Field Marshal Montgomery to do this," wrote Bradley's aide to Pape. "In fact, General Bradley was the one who asked the Field Marshal to autograph the book for you." Both commanders complied with Pape's instruction to sign of the verso of the D-Day message: "Omar N. Bradley, General U.S. Army, Former Commanding General 12th Army Group, 11/15/49" and "Montgomery of Alamein, Field Marshal, 23 Nov. 1949." The roster includes some who were bitterly antagonistic to each other. There must be very few instances of Douglas MacArthur and Harry Truman signing the same book or document. Yet when Pape wrote MacArthur on 12 November 1952 ? 18 months after Truman fired him ? the "old general" happily complied. "Glad to do so," he wrote on Pape's letter, signing with his initials: "DMacA." It is as if one had a guest book of a great Anglo-America victory banquet. Considering its travels ? passing some 40 times through the post and crossing the Atlantic ?the book is in remarkably good condition.

        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.

        Cybernetics

      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.

        The City and the Pillar

      New York: E.P. Dutton, 1948. First edition of this landmark novel. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed by the author on the title page. Fine in a bright near fine dust jacket with two small chips to the crown but does not show the fading endemic to the spine panel. A very sharp example. Stylistically influenced by Hemingway, this work, "is distinguished by its honesty and lack of self-pity; the central figure is unexceptional in every respect but his sexual choices" (Stringer, 690). "One of the best novels of its kind. . . . It isn?t sentimental, and it is frank without trying to be sensational and shocking" (Christopher Isherwood).

Burgess 99 title."I came out of the Army with an idea for a novel about a long patrol, an idea which had been bound in its origins to a mountain which was to serve as both an actual mass of stone and as a symbolic base for the book. The original conception was allegorical. The mountain was a consciously ambiguous symbol, something too complex, too tangible, to be defined by language." - Norman Mailer [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Du Pont Dyes for Leather [COMPLETE WITH ALL ITS MOUNTED LEATHER SAMPLES]

      E. I. Du Pont de Nemours & Company, Wilmington, Delaware 1948 - Quarto. [6], 25, [1], G-1 to G-5, [1], G-I to G-X, H-1 to H-7, [1], H-I to H-X, A-1to A-6, A-I to A-X, B-1 to B-8, X, C-1 to C-4, X, D-1 to D-3, Xpp. Original full black morocco 20-ring binder, with gold lettering to spine and front cover. Title page in red and black lettering."This book is for the purpose of showing a specialized range of Du Pont Leather Dyes which are particularly recommended for application to various types of leather. These dyes should simplify the colorist's problem of dyestuff selection and use. Discussion on pages 4 to 10 concerning dyeing procedure and factors affecting color application approaches the subject not only with practical operation in mind but also considers underlying principles. Brief comments and listing of a selected number of Du Pont dyestuffs for shading or special effects are included on pages 11 to 21. These products may be of interest in supplementing the Du Pont Leather Colors. Auxiliary products developed in recent years have become of great importance to the dyer and leather processor, and a separate section is devoted to the description and use of these products on pages 23 to 25. The sections showing actual swatches of leather dyed under tannery conditions are preceded by brief descriptions of the recommended dyeing procedures as well as pertinent facts about the leather in question that might be of interest to the tanner" (from the Introduction). This work is complete with its large flow chart and its 311 mounted leather samples of undyed and dyed calfskin, goatskin, and sheepskin in grain and suede. The swatches (each measuring 1 1/4 x 2 1/2") are mounted on tissue-guarded thick cardstock leaves, thus preventing offsetting on facing samples and leaves.Moderate rubbing along edges of binding. Hinges starting, but reinforced with black linen inner hinges. Typed label pasted on upper corner of title indicates that this was a laboratory copy. Binding in overall good to good+, interior in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
