        Nineteen Eighty-Four

      New York: Harcourt Brace and Company. Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket. 1949. 1st American Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. This copy is a 1st US Edition - with a red (preferred) dust jacket priced at $3.00 and First American Edition on the copyright page. This book is in Very Good+ to Near Fine- condition and has a Very Good+ dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. There is some beginning fraying and a couple of tiny nicks to the spine ends. The text pages are clean and bright with the exception of some beginning rubbing and paper loss on the front endpaper. The edges of the text block have some beginning toning. The dust jacket has a horizontal crease that goes through the center of the entire dust jacket. The spine of the dust jacket has a noticeable crease as well. The white portions of the dust jacket has some ground-in dirt and beginning toning. This book was written during the last several years of Orwell's life -- in February 1946 he suffered a tubercular haemorrhage which he hid from friends and family before setting off for the Isle of Jura in the Hebrides to work on the basics of Nineteen Eighty-Four. Over the next two years, and traveling back and forth from England to Jura, Orwell completed the novel as he was able, but his heath was in major decline. He completed the novel in December 1948, but by January 1949 he was seriously ill with Tuberculosis. He lasted one more year and died of the disease on January 21st, 1950. This book is considered one of the best dystopian novels of the 20th century. .

        The Second World War, finely bound, inscribed and dated by the author in Volume I and signed in Volume II, with a flight log book signed by Churchill, and a presentation letter from Churchill’s private secretary

      Cassell and Company, Ltd., London 1949 - This magnificent set of The Second World War is inscribed and dated by Churchill in Volume I and signed in Volume II, with a flight log book signed by Churchill, and a presentation letter from his private secretary. These belonged to Captain Andrew Cannon Treyer Evans (1923-2000), the former RAF pilot who flew Churchill to England from Madeira on 12 January 1950 for the run-up to the February 1950 General Election. Also included is a 13 January 1950 newspaper clipping about the flight which quotes both Evans and Churchill. The binding is full red morocco with gilt decoration and print, raised spine bands, contrasting morocco spine labels, gilt top edges, and marbled endpapers. All seven volumes are housed in two red cloth slipcases. Volume I is the most current edition available at the time of the inscription – the first printing of the second (revised with Churchill’s many corrections) edition, published November 1949. The signed Volume II, as well as the additional four volumes comprising the set, are British first edition, first printing. A seventh "volume" is a clamshell case housing the flight log book, presentation letter, and newspaper clipping. Captain Evans’ book plates were recovered from the pastedowns of the two signed volumes and affixed to the new pastedowns and protective tissue covers were added preceding the inscribed Volume I page and signed Volume II page. Captain Evans enlisted at age 18 in 1941, earned his RAF wings in 1942, and was demobilised as a Flight Lieutenant in 1946. During the War he trained in Airspeed Oxford bombers, flew anti U-Boat patrols and instructed in Catalina flying boats, and flew troop transport Liberators. After the war Evans flew commercially. Evans was piloting a flying boat for Aquila Airways on 12 January 1950 when he flew Churchill back to England from the Portuguese island of Madeira. "Churchill had intended to stay in Madeira for several weeks, hoping to make considerable progress on the fourth volume of his war memoirs. But while he was away, Attlee announced that a General Election would be held on February 23." (Gilbert, Volume VIII, p.500) Hence Churchill cut short his trip and returned to London. The flight proved nearly as dramatic and uncertain as the election. Fog threatened to divert the landing site, causing a scramble for the reception party on the ground. The press quoted Captain Evans: "Providence was on our side all the way, and the fog lifted at just the right time." Providence was not so partisan with the election, which left the Labour-led Government with a thin, five-seat majority. Churchill signed Evans’ personal flight log book. Two and a half months later, on 28 March 1950, Churchill’s Private Secretary, Cecily "Chips" Gemmell (Private Secretary from 1947-1951) sent Evans signed copies of the first two volumes of Churchill’s The Second World War. The bindings are superb and pristine, being newly commissioned by us. Within, the post-war economy standards paper remains uniformly bright for the edition. Spotting to the signed volumes is modest for the edition, light and intermittent inside, a bit heavier to the otherwise bright fore and bottom edges. Spotting to the final four volumes is trivial, confined to fore and bottom edges. We find no previous ownership marks other than the author’s graffiti and Captain Evans' bookplates in Volume I & II. The signed flight log book is in very good condition, retaining the original binding, previously reinforced at the inner joints. The blank verso of the log book’s final entry page contains three inscriptions dated June and July 1950, including that of English actor Carleton Hobbs (1898-1978). The accompanying presentation letter on Chartwell stationery is marred only by old cellotape stains at the blank upper and lower margins, where the letter was originally affixed inside Volume I. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A240.4(I).d & A240.4(II-VI).a, Woods/ICS A123(ba), Langworth p.264 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Radiation Theories of Tomonaga, Schwinger, and Feynman. [In] The Physical Review Volume 75, Number 3. [Together with] The S Matrix in Quantum Electrodynamics. [In] The Physical Review Volume 75, Number 11.

      Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: for The American Physical Society by the American Institute of Physics, February 1 and June 1, 1949 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original green wrappers printed in black. Ownership ink stamps of C. Moller to upper wrappers. Wrappers a little rubbed with the occasional small spot, spines toned with some closed tears, minor creases to the edges of contents in volume II, contents very faintly toned. An excellent set. First editions, first impressions of the papers that demonstrated the equivalence between Richard Feynman's diagram-based approach to quantum electrodynamics and Julius Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga's operator method approach. Both theories were presented for the first time at the Pocono Conference in April 1948, with Feynman and Schwinger going head-to-head, each wary of the other and jealously guarding their intellectual territory. Freeman Dyson, "one of England's two or three most brilliant mathematical prodigies" (Gleick, Genius, p. 235) was then a graduate student at Cornell, where Feynman was teaching, and though he did not attend the conference he eagerly absorbed the notes made by attendees. At the end of the summer he submitted a "manuscript representing a cathartic outpouring of work Dyson had found the mathematical common ground he was sure must exist [between the two theories] His chief insight was to focus on a so-called scattering matrix, or S matrix, a mustering of all the probabilities associated with the different routes from an initial state to a given end point. He now advertised a 'unified development of the subject' – more reliable than Feynman and more useable than Schwinger" (Gleick p. 267). But Dyson was concerned about publishing his own paper on two unpublished theories by more senior physicists – would he offend Feynman or Schwinger? Discussing the predicament with Hans Bethe, Dyson argued that "it was Schwinger's and Feynman's own fault that they had not published 'any moderately intelligible account': Schwinger, he suspected, was polishing obsessively, and Feynman simply couldn't be bothered with paperwork. It was irresponsible. They were retarding the development of science. By publicising their work Dyson was performing a service to humanity, he argued By January the war had been won. At the American Physical Society meeting Dyson found himself almost as much a hero as Schwinger had been the year before. Sitting in the audience with Feynman beside him, he listened as a speaker talked admiringly of 'the beautiful theory of Feynman-Dyson'. Feynman said loudly, 'Well, Doc, you're in'." (Gleick, pp. 267-270). [Attributes: First Edition]

        IL MONDO, settimanale diretto da MARIO PANNUNZIO Rara collezione (1949 - 1966) TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO - , Miano, Mazzocchi Gianni - Edit. Domus, 1949

      Formato giornale, cm. 36 x 65, pp. varianti da 12 a 20 - Uscita settimanale . Grande foglio politico, economico, letterario e culturale tra i piu' importanti (se non il più prestigioso del dopoguerra) diretto dal grande Mario Pannunzio alla cui scuola si sono formate generazioni di brillanti giornalisti . Pannunzio ebbe anche la abilità di far coesistere "prime donne" motivandole sapientemente . Con il Carocci di "Solaria" , l'Albertini del "Corriere" , e lo Scalfari di "Repubblica" , Mario Pannunzio puo' considerarsi tra i piu' grandi "Direttori del novecento italiano". Oggi , forse ancora più che nel proprio tempo, la storia del MONDO risalta sopratutto per " il rigore ampio e democratico "con il quale affrontò e caratterizzò i dibattiti sociali, politici e culturali. Naturalmente il contesto generale era favorevole (la guerra finita aveva lasciato ferite ma anche VOGLIA DI RINASCIMENTO). Se si potesse ora "rifare il Mondo" , il seguito e l'interesse sarebbero garantiti ! (ma esistono oggi simili protagonisti ?) Notevoli le firme nei vari periodi; ne citiamo solo alcune : Benedetto Croce, Eugenio Montale (è stato pubblicato un libro con i suoi importanti scritti sul Mondo), G. Raimondi, Rodotà , Pavolini, Salvadori, Cederna, Arbasino, Falconi, Musatti, Moravia, Monelli, Rea, Silone, Ennio Flaiano con le sue rubriche di cinema, Tobino, Jemolo, Landolfi, Comisso, Brancati, Antoni, Scalfari (assai gustoso un suo recente articolo su Repubblica, in cui rievoca i progetti, le discussioni ed i risultati di quella straordinaria avventura politica e culturale).La grafica, le fotografie, il taglio da rotocalco, deve tanto al mitico OMNIBUS di Longanesi al quale lo stesso Pannunzio, con Maccari ed altri del "Mondo" collaborarono attivamente. (Omnibus cessa nel 1939). I bellissimi e pungenti disegni di Mino Maccari e Amerigo Bartoli hanno accompagnato tutta la vita del giornale, con gustosi riferimenti a scene politiche e borghesi. COLLEZIONE dal numero 1 del 10 febbraio 1949, al numero 10 del 10 marzo 1966 . La raccolta è in ottime condizioni, le annate dal 1950 al 1966 sono ben rilegate annata per annata in tela rossa, piatti con carta decorata ed angoli e non manca alcun numero. L'annata 1949 è invece a giornali sciolti e ne mancano circa 30 (su un totalone di 890 giornali della intera raccolta) Si uniscono anche i preziosi DUE VOLUMI di indici, pubblicati da PASSIGLI - Firenze (benemerito) che permetteranno di fruire in modo completo della prestigiosa collezione che viene offerta a

Superlative copy of Orwell's towering work of dystopian fiction, the vocabulary of which has become a part of the fabric of our culture.

      Doubleday & Company, Garden City, N.Y. 1949 - First American edition. 1 vols. 12mo. Inscribed. Inscribed to the wife of New Yor Post columnist, Leonard Lyons, who was for many years one of New York's most prominent journalists. His column in the New York Post, "The Lyons' Den" was widely read and immensely popular during the many years since its commencement in 1934. Unlike many of his colleagues, however, Lyons was highly respected for his fairness and highmindedness. According to Ralph Blumenthal in STORK CLUB (Boston, 2000), "Lyons didn't believe in writing about romances and divorces. Nor, it was said, did he ever violate a confidence . He corresponded with world leaders and literary giants . " (p. 131); and he counted among his friends celebrities as diverse as Ernest Hemingway (at whose funeral Lyons was pallbearer), Marilyn Monroe, and Orson Welles.Maugham has inscribed the flyleaf: "For Sylvia Lyons / W. Somerset Maugham." Black cloth. Upper cover slightly stained, else very good, in soiled and chipped dust jacket [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        2 typed letters signed.

      New York and Pacific Palisades, California, 8 May 1949 and 21 Jan. 1950.. 8vo and 4to. Together 3 pp.. In English, both to Jerome Bengis, on imprinted stationery of the St. Regis: "Although I have myself recently become a musician of sorts, music is not really my field and as a critic of the type of book the author of which you are I am hardly competent" (8 May 1949). On 21 January 1950 he writes: "I have now occupied myself with your play, and although I feel on quite uncertain ground in the dramatic field, I dare say quite generally that your idea is original and its treatment effective and poetic in parts. Of course, the obstacles to a performance are quite obvious to me, for the Church more influential than ever in this country will certainly not tolerate the person of the Redeemer to be brought on the stage, even though the action takes place in pre-evangelic times".
