Levi-Strauss's first book, his dissertation (thesis). Inscribed on upper wrap by Levi-Strauss. Extremely Rare !. Les Nambikwara ont ete observes par Claude Levi-Strauss lors de son expedition de 1938. Il en fit le sujet de sa these complementaire de doctorat en 1948 (La vie familiale et sociale des indiens Nambikwara. Levi-Strauss reprendra ces observations dans Tristes Tropiques publie en 1955 et fera ainsi largement connaitre les Nambikwara. Ils se distinguent par une culture materielle reduite au minimum, ignorant meme le hamac. Leurs voisins Paressi les appellent d'ailleurs "ceux qui dorment a meme le sol". Leur activite est dependante du cycle saisonnier. Durant la saison seche ils se divisent en bandes de quelques familles et vivent de la chasse et de la cueillette, les femmes agrementant le repas de quelques baies sauvages, racines et, au besoin, de lezards et de sauterelles. Durant la saison des pluies quelques bandes se reunissent au sein de villages provisoires ou ils pratiquent l'agriculture (mais, manioc, tabac, arachides, etc.) et la peche. Aujourd'hui (2008), certains groupes habitent des maisons construites en feuille de palme et s'allongent sur des lits en bois ou sur des couvertures. Lors de son sejour, Levi-Strauss comprend qu'il assiste en direct a l'agonie d'un peuple. Il decrit "une societe humaine reduite a sa plus simple expression, diminuee", des "pouilleux" qui vont nus comme des vers. [wikipedia].

        Economics: An Introductory Analysis

      New York: McGraw-Hill, 1948. First edition reprint of the original 1948 first edition of this influential text by the father of modern economics. Octavo, original boards. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Signed by the author on the title page, "Paul A. Samuelson MIT, 2007". Its fundamental impact on the opinions and approaches of today's most influential economists is extraordinary. Upon publication this text immediately became the authority for the principles of economics courses. The book continues to be the standard-bearer for principles courses, and continues to be a clear, accurate, and interesting introduction to modern economics principles. The New York Times considered Samuelson to be the "foremost academic economist of the 20th century".Paul Samuelson is one of the developers of both neo-Keynesian and neoclassical economics, the latter of which still dominates mainstream economics. He was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for having written considerable parts of economic theory, and he is one of the ten Nobel Prize winning economists still signing the Economist's statement opposing the Bush tax cuts. One of Samuelson's many novel contributions was that he generalized and applied mathematical methods developed for the study of thermodynamics to the field of economics. His inspiration for doing so came, in part, from his mentor, polymath Edwin Bisdwell Wilson who was a former Yale student of the founder of chemical thermodynamics, Willard Gibbs. Samuelson, therefore, is a successful example of interdisciplinarity, and he combined these ideas in his magnum opus Foundations of Economic Analysis (1947).

        Raskolnikov och Sonja.

      Sketch for cover illustration to Vol. II of Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, signed ''TB'' at lower left corner. 16x13,5 cm. Different techniques, for instance pencil and watercolour. Pinholes in margins. Two small sketches of heads on the verso. The book has been published twice with Billman's woodcuts, in 1948 and in 1980. After the first publication he continued to make sketches for this novel, which had made a great impression on him, and the second publication contained several new woodcuts, as well as a coloured woodcut for each of the two covers. In lower margin of this sketch he has made some comments in pencil, for instance: ''Handen för lång! Flytta den!!'' [The hand is too long! Move it!!] The sketch has another athmosphere and is more colourful than the printed version. The Swedish woodcut artist, book illustrator and fresco painter Torsten Billman (1909-1989) grew up in Kullavik on the Swedish west coast, went to sea at 17 as an ordinary seaman, and again at 18 as a stoker; an occupation which he kept for a couple of forming years, combining the hard labour under deck with visits to seaports of the Mediterranean and the Far East. During the 30s he studied book illustration and wood engraving in Gothenburg, and returned to the Gothenburg art school in the 70s, then as an appreciated teacher. An avid reader, he found much inspiration in the works of Strindberg, Balzac, 19th century Russian literature, Harry Martinson, and Gunnar Ekelöf; and it is the illustrations for Balzac's Cousin Pons, Dostoyevski's Crime and Punishment and Martinson's Nomad on which his reputation as a book illustrator chiefly rests

        The Iron Curtain *SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR*

      E.P. Dutton, New York 1948 - Signed 280 pages. Inscribed upon front free endpaper to Roman Fast and signed by Igor Gouzenko in June of 1949. Gouzenko was the Soviet embassy cipher clerk whose defection in 1945 marked the beginning of the Cold War. His revelations resulted in major investigations and dozens of arrests. Above-average wear to red boards. Binding intact. Unmarked. What appears to be a clipping from the dust jacket of a Second Printing copy is neatly affixed at half-title page. Said clipping provides major contemporary media reviews of this work. A treasure for your Espionage or Cold War collection. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
