        Nineteen Eighty

      First edition, first impression, Secker and Warburg, 1949. . Publisher\'s light green cloth, a touch faded to extremities, with titles in red to slightly faded spine; top edge tinted and fore edge slightly foxed towards the end of the book. Very good indeed in an unclipped, green dust-jacket, slightly worn along extremities with some related creasing and small closed tear to top edge of upper panel. Original price of 10s net still on bottom corner of front flap of dust-jacket.This green dust-jacket is one of two variants issued by Secker & Warburg in 1949 ; the other dust-jacket is red.

      Hollywood: Samuel Goldwyn Productions, 1-14 June 1949.. [1],135 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only of white, blue and pink paper, bradbound in mimeographed wrappers. Wrappers heavily chipped and stained, some offset and staining from the dark blue wrappers to the margins of the earliest and final leaves, otherwise textually in very good order. A rare production script of the sole adaptation to the screen of any work by J. D. Salinger, based loosely on his short story, "Uncle Wiggly in Connecticut," which appeared in the NEW YORKER in March of 1948. This draft is shot through with dated revises on colored papers from the two week period noted above, and according to a pencil note in a contemporary hand, the production started shooting on 13 June and finished on 29 July. The film was directed by Mark Robson, and starred Dana Andrews and Susan Hayward. Though the screenwriters brought to bear on the project were proven talents (including CASABLANCA among their many credits), their fleshing out of Salinger's short story and transposition of it to the screen evidently proved an embittering experience for the young writer, and no other authorized film adaptation of Salinger's work has been undertaken. Any paper associated with this film has proven elusive over the years, and scripts particularly so.

      1949., 1949. One of a limited number of the original Japanese woodblock prints done by Van Gulik for his 1949 translation of Dee Goong An, The Ancient Chinese Detective Story, that are criminal cases solved by Judge Dee. The book DEE GOONG AN was published in 1949 and limited to 1200 copies. This print was used as the dust jacket for the book, but after his death in 1967, a small number (probably 20 copies), were found among his holdings and were sold by his wife. On the printing of Dee Goong An, Dr. van Gulik noted: The cover of this book represents the scene described on page 197. ["Judge Dee had the senior scribe read aloud his notes of the confession, and Hsu Deh-tai affixed his seal thereto. The judge slowly reread the document. Then he ordered the constables to bring in Mrs. Djou ... They took off her robes, leaving her only one undergarment, and then stretched her out on the floor. Having brought in the large screws, they made her lie on the heavy boards with her back, and placed her arms and legs in the screws... Her body writhed in vain in the terrible grip, and she shrieked hoarsely, but she gave no sign of wanting to confess."]. The print measures 13" x 18" and is protected with a mat and tasteful wooden frame. The condition of the print is fine and it provides a scene that is present in one of the three stories Judge Dee had to solve. An elusive item and an exceptional copy.

        Practical Forms of Type Theory" in Journal of Symbolic Logic, Volume 13, Number 2, June 1948, pp. 80-95 WITH A Review of "Practical Forms" in Journal of Symbolic Logic, Volume 14, Number 1, March 1949, p. 182

      - TWO FIRST EDITION ISSUES IN ORIGINAL WRAPS. In "Practical Forms of Type Theory," Alan Turing wished to "encourage 'mathematicians-in-the-street' to use notation and forms of argument which would safeguard their work from ambiguity and inconsistency; but to do this without forcing their work into the straitjacket of a particular logical system, or even requiring them to have detailed knowledge of such a system. To the end of his life, he thought this aim a proper one for a logician, and from time to time gave talks to mathematicians in which he would expound particular logical points. As a logician, however, he was interested in devising formal systems which could act as bridges between the formal and the informal, and this motivated him to produce the two systems set out in this paper" (Cooper, Alan Turing, 211). The issue is accompanied by a second issue in original wraps, this housing a review of Turing's paper. CONDITION & DETAILS: Menasha: Association for Symbolic Logic. (10 x 7 inches; 250 x 175mm). Two issues in original wraps and in pristine condition.

        The Little Sister

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company 1949 - First American edition, first printing. Publisher's red-orange cloth, with a dagger illustrations stamped in navy to the front board, spine lettered in navy; in the original pictorial dust jacket designed by Boris Artzybasheff. Near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, fresh interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some wear and minor chipping to the extremities, usual toning to the spine, short closed tear to the panel edges, some light soiling to the rear panel, bright spine and front panel. Overall, a very good, attractive copy. Bruccoli A8.2. The Little Sister is the fifth detective novel in Chandler's series featuring his protagonist Detective Philip Marlowe, "the most exciting high-velocity private investigator in the business." Unlike Dashiell Hammett's Continental Op and Sam Spade, who are widely considered the archetypal hard-boiled detective figures, Marlowe possesses a sensitivity underneath his tough exterior that distinguishes him from similar detective characters in the genre. Like many of Chandler's novels, The Little Sister is set in Los Angeles and the novel illuminates much of the day to day life in that city. Specifically, The Little Sister involves Hollywood and the film industry, focusing on the younger sister of a rising starlet. Despite the slightly more sensitive nature of Chandler's detective, The Little Sister is classic hard-boiled detective fiction with all of the austerity and ruggedness that hallmarks the genre. As the dust jacket proclaims, "Chandler is the master is of his own brand of vernacular and sets it down as if he were a divinely appointed recording angel to the tough guy."

Dittoed typescript. First sheet only (of three). [Cambridge, 1949.] 255 x 202 mm. Together 2 items. Both sheets a little creased, minor text loss on no. (2) due to faulty registration, otherwise very good. <p>Two examples of the materials issued to participants in the "Conference on high speed automatic calculating-machines" held at Cambridge in June 1949. This was the first computer conference held in England, and the first computer conference at which an operational stored-program computer (the EDSAC) was demonstrated.</p><p> "For the demonstration two short programs were run: the first, written by Wilkes, printed a table of squares; the second [no. (1)], written by David Wheeler, printed out prime numbers" (Williams and Campbell-Kelly, The Early British Computer Conferences, xiii).</p><p> The EDSAC, designed and built by Maurice Wilkes and his team at the Cambridge Mathematical Laboratory, had become fully operational only a few weeks before the conference. No. (2) is a portion of a dittoed draft of Wheeler&#39;s paper, "Planning the use of a paper library," which was published in the conference proceedings in 1950. This is the paper that first described the way in which the EDSAC would deal with subroutines and how information was passed to them and back again to the main program. This subject proved to be of the utmost importance and ranks with the invention of the index register (B-line) at Manchester as one of the fundamental developments which made modern computing possible. From that point of view this draft (obviously passed around during the conference) is a very significant document. See Wilkes 1985, 146-47. Origins of Cyberspace 1020-6 and 1020-8.</p>

        HUMAN ACTION A Treatise on Economics

      Yale University Press, New Haven 1949 - 904 pages; Book is clean and tight in publisher's gray cloth binding in original dustjacket which has some edgewear and two small chips to front panel and one dime sized chip at head of spine. An extremely nice example of the scarce first printing of this monumental treatise on economics. Ludwig Heinrich Edler Von Mises (1881 &#150; 1973) was an Austrian School economist, sociologist, and classical liberal. A prominent figure in the Austrian School of economic thought, he is best known for his work on praxeology, the study of human choice and action. Von Mises immigrated to the United States in 1940, where his thought significantly influenced the libertarian movement in in the mid-20th century. In this treatise Human Action, Von Mises expounds upon praxeology as a general conceptual foundation of the social sciences and sets forth his methodological approach to economics. He concluded that the only viable economic policy is one of unrestricted free markets and the unhampered rights of private property, with the role of government strictly limited to the territorial defense of persons and property.

        Typed Letter Signed, on his "Ausable Forks" imprinted stationery, 4to, Ausable Forks, NY. March 20, 1949.

      - Though Kent is better associated with his illustrations for Melville's "Moby Dick" and Voltaire's "Candide," his corespondent has apparently made an intriguing request of the artist that he consider his illustrations for "Bab Ballads" by W. S. Gilbert, and Lewis Carroll's "Hunting the Snark." Kent writes to an English professor referring to books of verses he illustrated. "With the exception of 'The Hunting of the Snark,' the 'Bab Ballads,' and such things which I have over and over again thoroughly enjoyed, I must say that 'enjoyment' is not the term for the deep emotion.that greater poetry has roused in me, I am not telling you what poems I have enjoyed, but what poems have most moved me." He continues to reply to his correspondent's request to suggest a poem for a book. ".there is little sense in mentioning "The Odyssey,' or even 'The Ancient Mariner,'.his final words to the Wedding Guest, beginning, 'Farewell, farewell, But this I tell.'and continuing to the end. These last stanzas, following all the poem that has preceded, are to me a deeply moving and convincing a creed for living as I know." He signs above the typed name, "Rockwell Kent." Fine insight into Kent's literary tastes. Paper clip rust stain on verso shows slightly on upper left margin.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 8vo, on printed personalized stationery with an imprint of "Fantasmagoria," Big Sur, California, July 31, 1949.

      - Miller makes reference to German author, Hermann Hesse's ninth novel, "Siddhartha," (1922) published in English in 1951. Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891) French poet remembered for his poetry as well as his short libertine life. Miller's work was published as a book in 1952 by Mermod. To Bruno Adriani, Miller mentions French author Arthur Rimbaud and Hermann Hesse's classic, "Siddhartha." "Do you recall ever seeing a photograph of Rimbaud's mother? Mermod in Lausanne are bringing out the (2) parts of my work on Rimbaud in French, this year. Letter from H. L. Mermod advises no photo of the mother in the famous Matarosso Collection. Yet I saw one of her (Vitalie) in an old issue of 'Labyrinthe' (Mastarosso Coll too!). Wonder if this was a mistake of the printer? I suppose Mermod wishes to include some photos in the book. Roger Cornaz is doing the translation. Did you ever know Gerhart Muench (composer & pianist) from Dresden? He's in Altadema now and invites me frequently - rather amazing letters. Just read Hesse's 'Siddhartha' in French.Depresses me tremendously." He signs, "Henry Miller."
