        A l'Ombre des Jeunes Filles en Fleurs *

      Gallimard, Paris 1948. - 2 tomes reliés 29 x 20, demi maroquin ivoire à coins, plats marbrés, dos à nerfs avec titres et têtes dorés, couvertures conservées. Reliures à peine passées. L'un des 440 exemplaires numérotés sur Vélin pur chiffon de Lana. La mixité de l'illustration de cet ouvrage provient de la disparition du premier ymagier, Boullaire ayant repris le flambeau en cours de route. Cela n'en demeure pas moins une réussite, et peut-être même cette double vision est-elle plutôt avantageuse pour ce livre raffiné, imprimé dans une typographie très fantaisie (en caractère Auriol spécialement fondu pour cette occasion par Deberny et Peignot) et en deux tons avec de belle marges.

        Proceedings of a Symposium on Large-Scale Digital Calculating Machinery. Proceedings... Jointly sponsored by the Navy Department Bureau of Ordnance and Harvard University a the Computation Laboratory 7-10 January 1947

      Cambridge, Massachusetts: Harvard University Press, 1948. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. [2 - 1st blank], xxix (including frontis), [1-blank], [1]-302 pages. Publishers navy blue cloth, with minor bump to base near spine. Dust jacket is edgeworn with small edge tears and minor loss at corners and head/tail of spine panel. Also has some soiling at the flap folds. Even so it presents nicely on the shelf. Volume XVI in the Annals of the Computation Laboratory of Harvard University. Publishes papers from the "first full-scale symposium on electronic and electro-mechanical digital computers. The symposium took place more than a year after the first postwar conference on mechanical and electronic computation techniques, held at MIT in October 1945, for which no proceedings were published." Howard Aiken, head of Harvard's Computation Laboratory, organized the conference. The papers cover aspects of computer design, construction, operation, and emerging applications. The proceedings offer one of the most comprehensive pictures of this rapidly emerging field in the post-war years. Seven of the papers here presented are listed separately in Hook & Norman's Origins of Cyberspace, and the members and attendees of the Symposium represent a veritable "Who's Who" of distinguished contributing scientists, mathematicians, and engineers (Aiken, Mauchly, Goldstine and Forrester spoke among others, with Turing, Hopper, and many other luminaries in attendance). Topics ranged from credible memory devices to important early machines - aspects of the Mark I and II, Whirlwind, ENIAC, and EDVAC style machines are all discussed. While the earliest computer history work tends to the theoretical, this symposium had much of the practical side to offer. This copy from the library of Harvard physicist and symposium participant Harry R. Mimno (his signature on front pastedown). Uncommon in dust jacket. Origins of Cyberspace 414 (also 553, 609, 848, 902, 913, 924, 1136) TEMPORARILY ON SALE PER CONSIGNOR.

        Cry, the Beloved Country

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1948. First edition of the author's classic work. Octavo, original beige cloth with titles to the spine in brown. Inscribed and dated by the author on the title page. Light wear, else fine in a near fine dust jacket. A sharp copy of an important work, rarely encountered signed. The most famous and important novel in South Africa's history, and an immediate worldwide bestseller when it was published in 1948, Alan Paton's impassioned novel about a black man's country under white man's law is a work of searing beauty. The eminent literary critic Lewis Gannett wrote, "We have had many novels from statesmen and reformers, almost all bad; many novels from poets, almost all thin. In Alan Paton's Cry, the Beloved Country the statesman, the poet and the novelist meet in a unique harmony." "The greatest novel to emerge out of the tragedy of South Africa, and one of the best novels of our time." (The New Republic)
