        The Discovery of India.

      1948 - Calcutta: Signet Press. 1948. 8vo. Original black cloth-backed decorative paper covered-boards and wrapper, designed by Satyajit Ray; pp. xvi + 497; wrapper chipped with some loss to top of spine, otherwise very good indeed. Provenance: inscribed by Nehru to ffe,: "To Mr Denny/ with all good wishes/ Jawaharlal Nehru/ New Delhi - August 16 1949". From the library of George V. Denny, Jr. (1899-1959), broadcaster and host of the NBC radio programme “America’s Town Meeting of the Air", in which panel members of different political persuasions were quizzed by members of the audience. Nehru, as Prime Minister of India, appeared on the programme in 1949 when Denny brought it New Delhi as part of a round-the-world tour. Fifth printing. Written during Nehru's final imprisonment in 1942-46, this has been hailed as one of the finest books on Indian history, culture and politics. It is written from the viewpoint of a fighter for independence, and is more concerned with the philosophical and spiritual underpinnings of Indian culture than with recounting a historical narrrative. Nevertheless, Nehru follows the growth of the nation from the earliest records to the movement for independence from the British Empire. In doing so he provides a political basis for independence, and a rousing, often romantic message of hope for his supporters. This is one of the founding works of modern India. Satyajit Ray (1921-1992), later to be acclaimed as a film-maker, was working as a commercial artist in Calcutta when he was employed by D.K. Gupta of the newly founded Signet Press as a cover designer. Gupta gave him complete artistic freedom; as well as this dustwrapper, he also designed covers for Jim Corbett's Maneaters of Kumaon and the classic Bengali novel Pather Panchali, which he later turned into his first feature film.

        A Mathematical Theory of Communication [ IN Bell System Technical Journal, July and October 1948 Issues ]

      New York: American Telephone and Telegraph Company, 1948. First Edition. Wraps. Very Good. First Edition. July: 379-592 pages, 8vo. ; October: 593-751, [1] pages, 8vo. Both original blue printed wrappers. July issue has stamps "Property of the Telephone Systems Training Section" on front wrapper and first page. Spine slanted and lightly sunned. A better than average copy. October issue has pencilled note at top of front wrapper, and is creased in the upper right corner (increasingly obvious as the issue progresses). Hard creases to rear cover. Otherwise clean. The Shannon article is in 2 parts, found on pp 379-423 (Jluy) and 623-656 (October). Wraps. Claude Shannon is credited with founding the field of information theory. Previous to the work done in this paper, the noise found on transmission lines was treated fundamentally differently. The previous solution was to "shout louder" so that the signal could be heard over the noise. With the introduction of the "bit" or binary digit, and the practical introduction of coding theory by Hamming and others, the start of modern transmission technologies were born. Without Shannon's work, the internet as we know it would not exist. "In this paper it was shown that all information sources - telegraph keys, people speaking, television cameras and so on - have a 'source rate' associated with them which can be meausred in bits per second...The information can be transmitted over the channel if and only if the source rate does not exceed the channel capacity...This work on communication is generally considered to be Shannon's most important scientific contribution...Few other works of this century have had greater impact on science and engineering. By this landmark paper and his several subsequent papers on information theory he has altered most profoundly all aspects of communication theory and practice." (Shannon Collected Papers p. xiii). "What began as a study of transmission over telegraph lines [ by Nyquist and Hartley ... ] was developed by Shannon into a general theory of communication applicable to telegraph, telephone, radio, television, and computing machines - in fact, to any system, physical or biological, in which information is being transferred or manipulated through time or space" (Aspray, 1985, pp. 119-22) Shannon's paper was also responsible for introducting the term 'bit' (for binary digit) into the published literature, and for giving the term it's current meaning..." (Origins of Cyberspace 880) In this fundamentally important paper, Shannon laid the foundation for much of today's interconnected world. Finding these papers in decent original wrappers is getting more difficult. Bound copies are more available. Shannon, Collected Papers, #37. Origins of Cyberspace 880. Aspray, 1985, pp119-22.

Peu après sa thèse, il participa à la mission de la SDN pour la restauration financière de l'Autriche.Georges-H. Bousquet résumait ainsi ses travaux en Islamologie (dans les mélanges qui lui furent consacrés dans les Cahiers Pareto en 1965) : "Très en gros, on pourrait dire à ce sujet que je suis parti intellectuellement de la Loi rituelle, morale et juridique de l'Islâm (fiqh) et ai essayé de voir dans quelle mesure cette étrange casuistique (dont j'ai traduit de nombreux textes et dont j'ai exposé les règles dans divers ouvrages) est appliquée, ou non, dans les sociétés musulmanes d'Afrique du Nord surtout (mais également en Indonésie). En particulier, mon attention s'est portée sur le rituel ('ibâdates) presque toujours systématiquement négligé par mes prédécesseurs". Bon exemplaire Français

        The Second World War.

      London: Cassell & Co. Ltd., 1948–54 - 6 volumes, octavo. Original black cloth, titles gilt to spines, top edge red, grey endpapers decorated with a design that alternates a lion rampant with the initials W.S.C. In the typographical dust jackets with background design as per the endpapers. An excellent set in the jackets with spines and edges slightly toned, occasional nick or short closed tear to extremities. Maps and diagrams, some folding. First editions, first impressions, of Churchill's masterpiece, the single most important historical account of the Second World War. Max Beloff observed that there was no statesman of the twentieth century "whose retrospective accounts of the great events in which he has taken part have so dominated subsequent historical thinking." A man who had always primarily made his living by his pen, Churchill was the only major war leader to give an authoritative account of the conflict, and his ringing phrases seeped into the collective memory. As J. H. Plumb noted in his essay in A. J. P. Taylor's Churchill: Four Faces and the Man "Churchill the historian lies at the very heart of all historiography of the Second World War, and will always remain there [we still] move down the broad avenues which he drove through war's confusion and complexity."

        Podsnezhnik [The Snowdrop]

      Moscow: Detgiz, 1948 - First Edition. Illustrated by A Bill’. [12]pp. 17 x 22cm. Original colour illustrated paper wraps, stapled. Colour illustrations. Minor even toning to paper stock, very minor shallow creasing, minor nudging to edges. Light even soiling to wraps, more pronounced to margins, light rubbing to edges with minor nudging to corners, tiny separation to foot, cap of spine. A completely charming volume of poetry. As one of the children’s authors who supported the cult of personality there is always a light air of Soviet bias to her writing. In The Snowdrop (a very Russian emblem of hope), the flower dies with the onset of winter ruminating on how it doesn’t regret dying as spring began with her. Aleksandrova was, of course, a prolific author of poetical works for children many of which were repeatedly republished and adapted into songs or plays. This edition only printed to a tiny print run of 50,000 copies. None recorded on worldcat. More pictures on request. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Proceedings of a Symposium on Large-scale Digital Calculating Machinery. Jointly Sponsored by The Navy Department Bureau of Ordnance and Harvard University at The Computation Laboratory 7-10 January 1947.

      Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1948 - Quarto. Original navy cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt. Extremities slightly rubbed, spine faded, rear board a little marked, contents evenly browned, overall a bright and very good copy. Photographic frontispiece, numerous photographs and figures to the text. Ownership signature of Raymond John Seeger to front free endpaper. First edition, first printing, of volume 16 of The Annals of the Computational Laboratory of Harvard University, owned by one of the conference contributors. It was the first of two symposia organised by the head of Harvard's Computation Laboratory, Howard Aiken, and was at the time the world's largest computing conference, with over 300 delegates in attendance (a smaller conference with around 85 delegates was held at MIT in 1945). Discussion focused on the practical application of new computing technology to a variety of fields such as economics, physics, aeronautics, and physiology. Several leading contemporary academics, including Alan Turing, were in attendance, and Aiken was at that time considered to be "the leading champion in the US of electromechanical program-controlled computation" (Sommaruga & Strahm, p. 71). This copy belonged to American theoretical physicist Seeger, who was the chief of the Mechanical Division at the Bureau of Ordnance from 1942 to 1946. He recommended acquisition by the Navy of one of the first computers to be used for experimental mathematics and fluid mechanics. His paper, "On Computational Techniques for Certain Problems in Fluid Dynamics", was delivered as part of the fifth session on 9 January 1947.

He started writing in Italy and then emigrated to Melbourne, Australia, where his Yiddish memoir, The Annihilation of Bialystok Jewry, was published by the Bialystoker Centre (Australia) in 1948." (Courtesy of JewishGen) A second Yiddish edition was published in 2003 (Amherst, Massachusetts : National Yiddish Book Center), and Rajzner's work was also recently translated into English as The Stories our parents found too painful to tell (Melbourne : AMCL Publications, 2007). Copies of the first Yiddish edition are held in four Australian libraries (Deakin University Library; Monash University Library; University of Melbourne Library; National Library of Australia).

        The Melbourne Invitation Committee extends a most cordial Invitation to the esteemed International Olympic Committee to celebrate the XVI Olympiad in Melbourne, Australia, in 1956 [first page of text]

      Melbourne Invitation Committee, Melbourne 1948 - [1948]. 345 x 270 mm, [ii], xiv, 63 pages with 60 plates plus 4 folding plates (3 in colour). Full cream-coloured leather with the colour enamel coat-of-arms of the City of Melbourne mounted on the front cover; a very fine copy with the original clear celluloid dustwrapper, and still in the original box (in excellent condition apart from a few split corners and edges). The book is essentially a photographic introduction to Melbourne. It is offered together with a companion publication of the same vintage, with the first page of text commencing 'Hereby the Melbourne Invitation Committee renews with cordiality its invitation . . .' (quarto, light blue cloth with a gold foil pictorial titling-label on the front cover; 43 pages with illustrations and a map). Loosely inserted in an endpocket are two tourist publications, printed in 1947 for the Victorian Railways Commissioners: 'Melbourne and Suburbs' (a folding map) and 'Melbourne. A City of Unrivalled Loveliness'. Also included are two copies of the booklet containing the French translation of the text (octavo, 16 pages) and two copies of the suitably oversized 'With Compliments' slip (200 x 125 mm). All of these additional items are in mint condition. A retained duplicate typed letter from an unidentified Lord Mayor (possibly of Adelaide) to the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, dated 14 July 1948, thanking him for the material, suggests the level at which this lavish prospectus was circulated. The centrepiece of any collection of published Australian Olympic memorabilia. Please use the 'Ask Bookseller a Question' link below to confirm availability and postage charges.
