        (1) UNIVAC summary report. Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation, chapters 1 &#150; 4. (2) UNIVAC instructions code C-7

      1948. <p>UNIVAC. (1) UNIVAC summary report. Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation, chapters 1 &#150; 4. Mimeographed typescript. [1], 28ff. N.p., n.d. [1948]. 268 x 200 mm. Original printed wrappers (wrappers measure 280 x 216 mm.), edges a little frayed, a few rust-stains. Some marginal pencil annotations by a former owner. (2) UNIVAC instructions code C-7. Mimeographed typescript. 9ff., including full-page mimeographed diagram. A few tiny marginal tears; a few pencil annotations by former owner. Together 2 items. Very good.</p> <p>First Editions. In late September 1946, Eckert and Mauchly&#146;s fledgling Electronic Control Company formally contracted to supply the United States Census Bureau with an electronic digital computer, an event that marks the beginning of the commercial computer industry. Since the Census Bureau was forbidden by law to enter into any research and development contracts, a complex financing arrangement was worked out between ECC (renamed the Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation in 1947), the Census Bureau, and the National Bureau of Standards in which the money was funneled via the Census Bureau to the NBS, which then used it to fund the development of the machine. The design and construction of this computer&#151;the first UNIVAC I&#151;took longer than anticipated, largely due to the Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation&#146;s continuing financial difficulties. The Census Bureau did not take possession of its computer until 1951, by which time the EMCC had become a subsidiary of Remington Rand. </p> <p>No. (1) &#147;is a summary of a report on the UNIVAC prepared by the Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation (Electronic Control Company) and transmitted to the National Bureau of Standards in November, 1947&#148; (first leaf). The present summary, prepared by the NBS&#146;s Machine Development Laboratory, includes descriptions of the UNIVAC&#146;s equipment and basic engineering design principles, as well as a copy of version C-6 of the UNIVAC&#146;s instruction codes &#147;valid as of April 1948&#148; (p. 7). As the name indicates, C-6 was the sixth revision of the machine&#146;s initial instruction code C-1, devised in 1947. The code went through at least one more revision&#151;C-7&#151;in 1948, which is included here (no. [2]). &#147;Code C-7 differs from C-6 in only two respects; (1) the number of words in a block have been reduced to 60 from 100, and (2) a few of the character assignments in the pulse code have been altered&#148; (p. 1).

      [Buenos Aires, 1948] - Inscribed on the mount by Perón in Spanish, on December 23, 1948, to the internationally renowned dentist, Dr. Stanley D. Tylman, "in gratitude for his services to Argentina and the friendliness he has shown me with his exquisite delicacy . " "Born in 1893, dentist Stanley D. Tylman not only taught more than 1,000 students at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry in his long career as a Professor of Dentistry (1920-1962) and head of the Department of Fixed Partial Prosthodontics, but he influenced countless dentists internationally as well. "Tylman was particularly effective as a global educational force because he spoke four languages. His international lecture schedule took him to Asia, Europe, the Caribbean, and South America--including Argentina, where he performed dental work for President Juan Peron and First Lady Evita Peron. Dentists worldwide traveled to Chicago for personal consultations with Dr. Tylman . Tylman died in 1982." -- Wikipedia, 8/3/06 (ARGENTINA) Image 28.5 x 20 cm.

      Sauk City, Wisconsin: Arkham House, 1948 - Octavo, cloth. First edition. Signed by Hartley on the front free endpaper: "With the best wishes of the / the writer, / Leslie Hartley." 2047 copies printed. Hartley scattered supernatural material throughout his short story collections, as well as the mainstream novels, such as THE GO-BETWEEN, for which he is better known. The present volume concentrates most of this material in one collection. The author worked mainly as a critic and reviewer, writing fiction on the side and bringing to it a sensibility that fused "a Hobbesian view of human nature [and] a childlike rapture ." (Sullivan, The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 193) Such a fusing of horror and humor shows up in many masters of the fantastic, such as Dickens, Bierce, M. R. James and W. W. Jacobs. "Stylistically, Hartley is peerless, bringing to his genre fiction the same elegant precision that characterizes his major novels. The ghost story, he once wrote, is 'if not the highest, certainly the most exacting form of literary art.' No one was more exacting in the genre than Hartley himself." - ibid, p. 192. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-80. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 4-113. Mild bump to upper spine end, a fine copy in fine dust jacket with touch of rubbing to upper spine end. A very nice copy. This book is rarely found signed or inscribed by Hartley. (#132179) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Problemist: Proceedings of the British Chess Problem Society

      Sutton Coldfield: British Chess Problem Society, 1948-53 [298]-612 pages with diagrams, illustrations, plates and tables. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 7 1/4") issued original green cloth with gilt lettering. Volume 4, numbers 1 thru 36 (Betts: 42-5) 1st edition.The Problemist started with volume 1 January 1926 and published bi-monthly. It originally had the subtitle Proceedings of the British Chess Problem Society but the words Proceedings of were dropped in January 1985. The foreword to the first issued, written by the editor T R Dawson, begins: "This little journal, bring Happy New Year Greetings to every member of the BCPS, will be to most of you a surprise calling for explanation. It origin lies in the desire to have a medium in which the Society, as a collection of units and as a unity, may give expression to its thought and life. Following a suggestion from Mr F. F. L. Alexander, at the last annual general meeting, I obtained quotations for printing this periodical which enabled me to formulate a practical scheme for its continuance within the limits of our income. The scheme was unanimously adopted at a special meeting on Nov. 27th last, with Mr B. G. Laws in the chair and I accepted the meeting's invitation to edit these pages. Our title is a happy suggestion from Mr C. D. Locock." T. R. Dawson continued as editor of The Problemist until May 1931 when he resigned to devote more time to The Problemist Fairy Chess Supplement which he had begun in August 1930 (in 1936 it was renamed The Fairy Chess Review). The post of editor of The Problemist was taken on by C. S. Kipping who held the position until his death in 1963. Subsequent editors have been John Ling, Colin Vaughan from March 1972, Paul Valois from May 1985 and John Rice from March 1999. All these general editors have been assisted by a team of section editors devoted to specific topics. The Problemist continues to be devoted essentially to orthodox chess problems, including regular columns on endgames, selfmates and helpmates using the orthodox chess pieces. A fairy chess column was reintroduced by A. S. M. Dickins in march 1968. In January 1997, as a result of modern computer production methods, the page-size of the magazine was reduced from the traditional quarto size to A5, though with more pages. Although the magazine is published by the British Chess Problem Society, membership of the Society is open to people throughout the world, and this is reflected in the names of the contributors of problem compositions and articles.Condition:Some occasional marginalia else a very good to fine copy issued without jacket.

        The Postwar Speeches, a full set of jacketed first editions: The Sinews of Peace, Europe Unite, In the Balance, Stemming the Tide, and The Unwritten Alliance

      Cassell and Company Ltd., London 1948 - Here is a quite respectable full, jacketed British first edition set of all five of Churchill's post-WWII speech volumes. These volumes span the period from Demobilization in late 1945, when Churchill was Leader of the Opposition, through his second Premiership (1951-1955), into a time when Churchill passes "into a living national memorial" of the time he has lived and the Nation, Empire, and free world he has served. The events encompassed by these years are in many ways no less dramatic than those of the war years - the unraveling of the British Empire, the post-war recovery, the onset of the Cold War, Soviet acquisition of the atomic bomb, development of the hydrogen bomb, and the beginning of the space age (to name a few). These postwar speech volumes are much more scarce than Churchill's War Speeches volumes; all five of these books had only a single printing each. Moreover, collectors should note that the fifth and final volume, The Unwritten Alliance, is the last of Churchill's books published in his lifetime and was issued only in Britain, with no U.S. edition. All five volumes offered here are very good plus or better in very good or better dust jackets. All five cloth bindings are clean, tight, and square with minimal wear. The contents of all five volumes are uniformly clean and tight. No internal spotting. No previous ownership marks. A trivial hint of spotting is confined to the text block edges of Europe Unite and there is some dust soiling to the Sinews of Peace top edge. All five dust jackets are bright and clean with only modest wear and imperfections. The first four dust jackets are unclipped, still bearing the original front flap prices. The Unwritten Alliance is neatly price-clipped, but compensates with superb shelf appearance, no losses, and virtually none of the wear and orange streaks endemic to this edition. Please note that Stemming the Tide has the more desirable first state dust jacket. Stemming the Tide has a 1.25 inch closed tear to the upper front face that nearly disappears beneath the dust jacket protector, as well as chipping to a depth of .25 inch at the spine head. In the Balance also shows some minor chipping to the spine head. The dust jackets for Europe Unite and The Sinews of Peace show only light wrinkling at the spine heads, as well as a bit of wear along The Sinews of Peace front hinge. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers.
