        1. Physical principles involved in transistor action. 2. The theory of p-n junctions in semiconductors and p-n junction transistors. 3. Communication theory of secrecy systems

      1948. First edition. First Comprehensive Report on the Transistor, with Shannon's Foundation of Modern Cryptography(1) Bardeen, John (1908-91) and Brattain, Walter (1902-87). Physical principles involved in transistor action. In Bell System Technical Journal 28, no. 2 (April 1949): 239-77. (2) Shockley, William (1910-89). The theory of p-n junctions in semiconductors and p-n junction transistors. In ibid.: 435-89. (3) Shannon, Claude (1916-2001). Communication theory of secrecy systems. In ibid.: 656-715. Whole volume. iv, 753, [1], v-viii pp. Illustrated. 221 x 148 mm. Library buckram. Very good. Library stamps and label on endpapers.(1) First Editions. No. (1), Bardeen and Brattain's paper, is the first comprehensive report on the point-contact transistor, created in December 1947 and announced in three brief papers published in the Physical Review in 1948. The transistor gradually replaced the bulkier vacuum tube, allowing heat reduction and miniaturization of electronic devices. Transistors began to be employed on a large scale in computer manufacturing in the late 1950s; they were eventually miniaturized and incorporated into microprocessors.Bardeen and Brattain shared the 1956 Nobel Prize for physics with William Shockley (see below) for their investigations of semiconductors (the materials of which transistors are made) and for their discovery of the transistor. Origins of Cyberspace 450.No. (2) is a detailed account of the junction transistor invented by Shockley shortly after Bardeen and Brattain's invention of the point-contact transistor. Shockley's design marked a substantial improvement over the point-contact transistor, whose "delicate mechanical configuration would be difficult to manufacture in high volume with sufficient reliability" (Computer History Museum, "The silicon engine: A timeline of semiconductors in computers" [internet reference]). Shockley disagreed with Bardeen and Brattain's explanation of how the transistor worked, claiming that "positively charged holes could also penetrate through the bulk germanium material-not only trickle along a surface layer. Called 'minority carrier injection,' this phenomenon was crucial to operation of his junction transistor, a three-layer sandwich of n-type and p-type semiconductors separated by p-n junctions. This is how all 'bipolar' junction transistors work today" (ibid.). Bell Laboratories began manufacturing junction transistors in quantity in 1951; they dominated the market for many years. Magill, Nobel Prize Winners: Physics, pp. 675-704.No. (3), Shannon's discussion of cryptography from the viewpoint of information theory, "is one of the foundational treatments (arguably the foundational treatment) of modern cryptography. It is also a proof that all theoretically unbreakable ciphers must have the same requirements as the one-time pad [a secret random key used only once]" (Wikipedia). Shannon published an earlier version of his cryptography research in the classified report A Mathematical Theory of Cryptography (Memorandum MM 45-110-02, Bell Laboratories, Sept. 1, 1945). Shannon, Collected Papers, no. 25.

        The Second World War, Volume I, The Gathering Storm, a pre-publication galley proof with comments

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1948. 1st Edition. Paperback. Good. This exciting find is a galley proof of the first volume of Churchill's history of the Second World War. This offers a snapshot of Churchill's masterwork being prepared for publication. This is the only such galley proof we have seen on the market in memory. In July 1945, so near the victory he did so much to secure, Churchill lost the premiership to the Labour Party. Writing his history of the Second World War consumed most of the years he spent as Leader of the Opposition, before his second premiership in late 1951. Seldom, if ever, has a statesman had such singular ability to both make and write history. The sixth and final volume of The Second World War would not be published until 1953 - the year Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature. A galley proof is an early printing of a work, usually produced after a manuscript has been typeset but before proofreading. They are typically printed for the author, editors, and proof readers. They are normally produced on long sheets of paper with wide margins (for comments) and bound inexpensively. While galley proofs can also be used by publicists or sent to book reviewers, their primary purpose is the editing process. More polished Advance Reading Copies (ARC) come later, more closely resemble the final published form, and are typically produced in greater numbers for circulation to reviewers. This galley proof of The Gathering Storm measures 12 by 7 inches and bulks 1.5 inches. It is produced on long, single-sided sheets, untrimmed at the top and bottom edges and unpaginated. The manuscript is bound in plain brown paper with a simple title and author label printed black on white paper affixed to the front cover. It is printed with wide blank side margins, with the text occupying a centered column 4.25 inches wide. Textual differences between the U.S. (true first) edition and the later British first edition attest that this is a U.S. edition galley. This galley was evidently produced early enough in the pre-publication process that it lacks the preface, table of contents, acknowledgements, moral of the work, theme of the volume, and maps and diagrams of the published text. The text appears to closely conform to that of the published version. This copy bears extensive comments which appear likely to have been made by an early stage reviewer, whose identity is unknown, as is the precise date of publication. However, we know that "The Gathering Storm" title was not selected until at least early February 1948, with publication of the U.S. edition on 21 June 1948. The extensive margin comments appear consistent with those of a reviewer than those of an editor or proofreader. The reader's comments and underlining are in pencil, extending 29 pages into the text. A total of 17 pages bear notation and/or comments, these being pages 1, 3, 4, 6, 9-11, 14, 15, 20, 22-24, 26-29. All notations appear consistent in style and handwriting, indicating that they were made by a single reader. Several margin comments either dissent with or augment certain points of history addressed in the narrative, particularly with respect to the deficiencies and draconian demands of the Treaty of Versailles. The reader shows detailed knowledge of events, as comments sometimes name specific individuals. Moreover, there is some indication that the comments may be those of an American reader, since there is sharp criticism of England both expressed and implied, as well positive comment about Wilson; however, this is interpretative speculation. Overall condition is very good given the perishable nature of such an item. The brown paper binding is square, tight, clean, and complete, though dog-eared at the corners and with some wear and separation at the spine ends. The contents are clean and bright with some wear at the page edges of the first few dozen pages of text, as well as the final few pages. A hint of spotting is confined to the text block fore edge.

Este fue el segundo libro de la imprenta Bedia, una edición clandestina, ya que no contaba ni con la autorización de la familia del poeta ni con los permisos oficiales de las autoridades del regimen. en 1998 se vendió un ejemplar por una cantidad elevadísimo en subasta; sin embargo, en contra de lo que se publicó entonces en el Diario Montañés, consta claramente el nombre del impresor.

        The Second World War, full set of six British first editions in fine bindings

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1948. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Here is a spectacular fine binding of the first British edition of Churchill's The Second World War. This is Churchill's history of the epic struggle that was so indelibly stamped by his leadership. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed such a statesman with both singular ability to make history and singular ability to write it. This six-volume epic has been called "indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today." Offered here is the British first edition, first printing, in a superlative fine binding. Please note that this binding is an aesthetically striking alternative to the ubiquitously standard red morocco rebind of this edition. This unique binding was commissioned by us from a sole-proprietor UK binder of exceptional skill and talent. The half-leather binding features hand-dyed, polished tan calf over red cloth boards with twin morocco spine labels on each spine and polished calf corners. The gilt titling, rules, and decoration are 24 carat gold leaf, laid on by hand. The spine features raised bands, ruled compartments, extensive gilt decoration including the lion rampant, red title panel, and black author panel. All borders and transitions feature double gilt rules. The head and foot bands are sewn, not glued. Condition of the binding is flawless. The British first edition was printed on postwar economy standards paper and proved exceptionally prone to spotting, age-toning, and irregular fading of the red-stained top edge. Thus even many finely bound copies featured flawed contents. The starting point for this fine binding was an uncompromisingly fresh and bright set of British first editions with virtually pristine contents. The contents of all six volumes are especially crisp and bright for this edition. No spotting. No inscriptions. The fore edges and bottom edges of all six volumes are unusually bright and clean. The top edges retain uniform red color, complementing the red cloth boards and red spine labels. This is an outstanding set, showcasing a truly skilled binder's craft. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A240(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A123(ba), Langworth p.264.

        The Second World War, full set of six British first editions

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1948. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Fine/Near fine plus. Here is a premium, collector-grade full set of British first editions. This is Churchill's history of the epic 20th Century struggle that was so indelibly stamped by his leadership. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed such a statesman with both singular ability to make history, and singular ability to write it. This six-volume work has been called "indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today." Jacketed British first edition sets in marginal condition are not uncommon. However, the coarse cloth bindings of this edition proved susceptible to soiling and mildew, the contents proved highly prone to spotting, the red-stained top edges are most often severely faded, and the dust jackets proved exceptionally vulnerable to pronounced toning on the spines. Consequently, superior jacketed sets have become scarce. Here is such a set for collectors, truly fine first editions in near-fine plus dust jackets with superlative spine presentation. One must handle hundreds of sets - as we have - to truly appreciate how rare jackets are in such condition. There is absolutely no color shift between the jacket faces and spines and the red spine subtitles remain beautifully bright. This set came to us in extremely old, homemade dust jacket protectors, which accounts for their excellent condition. The jackets are unclipped and complete apart from fractional wear to the V & VI spine heads. The only other jacket flaws result from the well-intentioned preservation efforts of the previous owner. On the jacket versos at the lower Volume III spine and the upper rear panel of Volume IV very old cello tape reinforcement was applied to two short closed tears and the glue transferred through the paper, slightly darkening the jackets. The only other flaws are tiny tape scars on a few of the dust jacket flaps where cello tape from the homemade dust jacket protectors made contact with the jacket paper. The dust jackets are now protected in modern, removable, archival quality clear covers. The books beneath the jackets are likewise wonderfully clean examples. The coarse black cloth bindings are immaculate, tight, and square with nicely rounded spines, sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and virtually no wear. The contents are crisp and bright. The red-stained top edges retain uniform, unfaded color. Spotting, endemic to this edition, is all but absent, limited to perhaps half a dozen barely discernable small spots on the Volume I & II fore edges. The endpapers show a few faint stains from the tape used to hold together the original, homemade dust jacket protectors. The sole previous ownership mark in the set is a touching Volume I gift inscription from a wife to her husband dated "24th October 1948" - the month of publication. The recipient was Mr. J.R.S. Booth, who was a Superintendent of the Boundaries Department of Ordnance Survey, published a regarded "Public Boundaries and Ordinance Survey 1840-1980, and received an MBE when he retired.

        The Second World War, full set of six British first editions

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1948. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. This is Churchill's history of the epic struggle that was so indelibly stamped by his leadership. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed such a statesman with both singular ability to make history, and singular ability to write it. Churchill's eloquence and insight frames the world-defining events of his time in truly enduring prose. This six-volume epic has been called "indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today." Jacketed sets in marginal condition are not uncommon. However, the coarse cloth bindings of this edition proved susceptible to soiling and mildew, the contents proved highly prone to spotting, the red-stained top edges are most often severely faded, and the dust jackets proved exceptionally vulnerable to pronounced toning on the spines. Consequently, better jacketed sets have become scarce. Here is a quite respectable full set of six first editions, featuring very good or better volumes in very good or better first printing dust jackets. The coarse black cloth bindings are unusually fresh - square and clean with sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and virtually no wear. The contents are clean and bright. The sole previous ownership mark in the set is a decorative bookplate affixed to the Volume IV pastedown. There is no internal spotting; very mild spotting is confined to the fore edges. The red-stained top edges retain very good color, showing only mild signs of sunning on the top edges of the first four volumes. All six dust jackets are unclipped, still bearing the original prices on the front flaps. All six dust jackets are complete with no losses. Minor wear is confined to the spine ends and the sole sign of soiling is a small smudge at the head of the Volume V spine. All six dust jacket spines are only mildly toned, with all six red subtitles remaining quite clear. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers.

        L' écho des fantaisies

      NP: ND [1948?] - NP: ND [1948?]. Louise Lévêque de Vilmorin (1902 - 1969) was a French novelist, poet and journalist, known for her mordant wit and various love affairs (including Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Count Paul Pálffy ab Erdöd, Orson Welles, Count Paul Esterházy de Galántha, Duff Cooper and André Malraux). Her works, particularly her most famous novel, Madame de, have been described as possessing a sense of libertinage and impertinence and are often set in aristocratic milieus. She was feared by many and her reputation as "femme de lettres and saloniste, legendary clotheshorse and tastemaker, brilliant hostess and home-wrecking man slayer" remains in tact today.Her most impressive production is this lavishly produced assemblage of 60 original photographs by Victor Grandpierre mounted on cardboard with rounded corners and gilded, each of which is accompanied by a short poem by Vilmorin. The photographs are arather surrealistic assemblage of ordinary household objects, as well as assorted antiques arranged to evoke the spirit of her poetry. Issued in an ediiton of 250 copies, the book was undoubtedly created as a gift for her friends. Two large clamshell boxes with marbled boards, paper labels. Very good, light edgewear, Quite uncommon.

        THE DISPOSSESSED

      New York: William Sloane 1948 New York: William Sloane (1948). 1st edition, full cloth, with dust jacket. Specially signed by Berryman. An advance publication presentation copy to Berryman's girl friend (Beryl Eeman) and inscribed: "B. imperishably John, Princeton, 27 Apr 1948 won't you send me one word?" in fountain pen ink on the FEP. Additionally with Eeman's signature and London address pencilled on the pastedown. The first poem in the collection is dedicated to her, as indicated on the author's "Note" page preceding the text. Berryman has placed a "+" next to her name. The inscription date is nearly two weeks prior to the publication date of May 10th. Very likely the first copy presented of the author's first major (pp. 103) solo collection published, with an unparalleled inscription. Only gentle wear to this fine and historically important copy. Housed in a deluxe custom archival box with leather spine and marbled paper boards. A most handsome presentation to what could easily be the cornerstone to any fine Berryman collection.
