        Death of a Salesman; Certain private conversations in two acts and a requiem

      new York: The Viking Press, 1949. First edition. Mild dampstain affecting lower edge, especially on rear, slight shelf wear, still an unusually nice copy in an unfaded dust jacket with a pair of small closed tears to the front, loght rubbing to the extremities, and evidence of the aforementioned dampstain to the lower rear panel. A much nicer copy than it sounds.. 8vo, 139pp; orange cloth. The first printing, with the printer identified and "March 1949" on the copyright page; dust with price of $2.50 on the front flap and photo of Miller on the rear flap. While not a rare book -- there are at any given given moment several dozen copies available, it is a difficult book to find in top condition. This does not quite fit that particular bill, but despite its stated flaws, it is a handsome copy and a good value.

        The British Colour Council Dictionary of Colours for Interior Decoration

      1949. BRITISH COLOUR COUNCIL. The British Colour Council Dictionary of Colours for Interior Decoration. 3 volumes (2 of colour samples and a third volume of text). III: xxi, [1], 28, [6, memoranda] pp. Two sample volumes, 255 x 200 mm, bound in matching red cloth bolted binders, together in a matching red slipcase with text volume, 260 x 210 mm, bound in red cloth with silver lettering and emblem on front cover. London: British Colour Council, 1949. |~||~||~||~| As the British Colour Council developed its services to industry it became apparent that the bias in the dictionary towards colours for textiles made it less relevant as a standard reference work for Interior Decoration. Some colours which were suitable for clothes were insufficiently permanent for application to carpets, curtains and upholstery fabric, while others were technically impracticable for use in the pottery and glass industries, in porcelain and vitreous enamel or in the making of paint or other materials used in decorating. In 1949 the Council published the "Dictionary of Colours for Interior Decoration". This work consisted of three volumes, two of colour samples and the other a slim list of names and a history of the colours. The 378 colours illustrated were shown on three surfaces - matt, gloss and a pile fabric (like carpet). One reference name and number was given for the colour shown in three forms, and it was stressed that the surface required should be made clear when the Dictionary was used to specify a colour match. Number 924 of 7500 copies.

The same paper was published simultaneously in the April 15, 1949 issue of the Physical Review. This volume also contains a paper by Claude Shannon 'Communication Theory of Secrecy Systems' which was originally published in a classified memorandum 'A Mathematical Theory of Cryptography' in Sept 1, 1945. It was declassified, and published here for the first time publically. There are also other papers on the transistor, and papers by other Bell System researchers. The Bell System Research Labs functioned as a rich incubator during this period, turning out key developments across many technologies. The Bell System Technical Journal is an important journal of record for research in electronics, physics, communications theory, and mathematics.

      American Telephone and Telegraph Company, New York 1949 - First Edition. viii, 753 pages. 8vo. Dark blue/black cloth with replaced endpapers. Page edges speckled. Spine lettering "Bell System Technical Journal" | "Vol 28, 1949". Ex-libris "P. Caporale" with owner's name lettered on front panel and signature on front pastedown endpaper. This volume includes all 4 quarterly issues of theBell System Technical Journal for 1949. Original wrappers are not bound in as is often the case. A sound copy. Cloth. Bardeen, Brattain and Shockley won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1956 "for their researches on semiconductors and their discovery of the transistor effect." The first paper referenced here, 'Physical Principles Involved in Transistor Action' is the classic paper on the subject, here in it's original publication format. The same paper was published simultaneously in the April 15, 1949 issue of the Physical Review. This volume also contains a paper by Claude Shannon 'Communication Theory of Secrecy Systems' which was originally published in a classified memorandum 'A Mathematical Theory of Cryptography' in Sept 1, 1945. It was declassified, and published here for the first time publically. There are also other papers on the transistor, and papers by other Bell System researchers. The Bell System Research Labs functioned as a rich incubator during this period, turning out key developments across many technologies. The Bell System Technical Journal is an important journal of record for research in electronics, physics, communications theory, and mathematics.Shannon, Collected Papers #24 (original memorandum publication) and #25 (this publication, which is noted as superceding the original memorandum).

        [Autograph Note, in Shorthand, Signed with Initials (Accompanied By:) Typed Memorandum from His Secretary, with Shaw's Ms. Response]

      London, 1949. Two items, first on lined notecard (75 x 125 mm), second on octavo lettersheet. Very good. An exchange with Blanche Patch, his secretary, about recommendations for a radio. The first item, in Shaw's shorthand, bears Patch's interlinear transcription in pencil: "In future Penguin accounts and cheques are to be sent to us directly, not to the Soc. of Authors. Your radio is worse than useless if it cannot get you the 3rd program. Mrs. Laden's one in the kitchen is all right, get one like it. I will pay for it. She will tell you the make. G.B.S." The second item is a typed memo from Patch to Shaw, thanking him for his offer to pay for a new radio, but declining his offer, explaining the nature of the interference, and mentioning how the Marconiphone he gave her fifteen years earlier still gets the Home Service. Shaw responds in ink in the lower portions of the sheet, and in a very frail hand: "Our refrigerator put my Murphy receiver out of action until I got it insulated; but the [illegible] is quite unaffected. The Marconi may still be worth something in exchange. It may even be adaptable to the 3rd program. If so it may be better than a new one. Most old contraptions are better made than the latest."

        Communication in the Presence of Noise. Bell Telephone System Technical Publications, Monograph B-1644

      Bell Telephone Laboratories, New York, NY 1949 - First Separate Edition. 12 pages. 8 1/2 x 11 inches. Printed grey, blue and black wrappers. Ex-library stamp on front cover dated Aug 11, 1949. Otherwise unmarked. Wraps. "Hartley's [Transmission of Information, 1928] results, published before the end of [the 1920s], were to be guiding rules for transmission engineers for nearly 20 years, giving way to a more comprehensive theory only when Claude Shannon would carefully examine the effect of noise on the ability of a system to preserve faithful indications of amplitude." (A History of Engineering & Science in the Bell System, The Early Years, p 909).The original manuscript of this paper was received by the Institute of Radio Engineers July 23, 1940. It was presented at the IRE National Convention in New York on March 24, 1948 and November 12, 1947 (IRE New York Section). It was first published in the Proceedings of the Institute of Radio Engineers, Volume 37, pp 10-21 in January 1949, and here as a first separate edition in 1949 (month unknown).Often erroneously referred to as offprints, the Monograph series was not published in most cases contemporaneously with the original publications. The series also included work by Bell System employees that were first published outside the Bell System umbrella. They are, however, usually the first separate publication, and are thus highly prized by collectors since offprints in the traditional sense were not produced in the Bell System as far as we are aware.Shannon, Collected Papers, #43 (referring to the Proceedings Institute of Radio Engineers issue).
