        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 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]

        Minutes of the William Blake Trust.

      London: 1948-1969. Thick folio, 240 pp. with manuscript notes and typed minutes pasted in throughout. Original half red roan, blue moiré boards, lettered “Minute Book” in gilt. In very good condition, tips worn. 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.”

Im Alter von 67 Jahren verstarb Doll in Paris. 1948 hat Doll einen Teil seiner juristischen Ausarbeitungen zum Röchling-Prozess publiziert. 2011 erhielt das Kreisarchiv Rastatt den Nachlaß von Paul-Julien Doll zum Prozeß von seiner Tochter //////////// Die Sammlung stammt vom Karlsruher Journalist und Historiker Josef Werner (gest. März 2016), der regelmäßig für Karlsruher und Rastatter Zeitungen über den Prozeß schrieb.
