This is number 56 of a limited edition of one-hundred-&-eight copies with covers decorated by the author, most spine cloths & binding papers different. Bound largely by Hand and signed by the author. A remarkable copy both for its superb condition as well as the fact that this copy includes both paint and cloth collage elements.

        Nineteen Eighty-Four

      London: Secker & Warburg,, 1949. Octavo. Original light green cloth, titles to spine in red, red top-stain. With the red dust jacket. Spine rolled, spine and edges of boards toned. A very good copy in the rubbed, creased, and partially faded jacket with chips and short closed tears. First edition, first impression. Copies of the first impression were issued either in green or dark red dust jackets. To judge from surviving examples, this was done in proportions of about two green to one red. The red jackets are far more susceptible to fading, and as a consequence pretty examples are far less common than those of the green version.

        The World Crisis

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1949. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Near fine. This is a collector grade copy of the first abridged and revised edition, third and final printing of Churchill's history of the First World War. Churchill's history - which he titled "The World Crisis" - was originally published between 1923 and 1931. Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the front. He served as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915. After the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his masterwork - originally published in six volumes between 1923 and 1931 - far exceeds this purpose. This important edition covering the war years 1911-1918 is not just an abridgement. It incorporates revisions by Churchill with new material, including a whole new chapter on the Battle of the Marne, as well as a new introduction. The U.S. edition preceded the British, making it the true first edition. There were three printings of the U.S. first abridged and revised edition - 1931, 1942, and 1949. All three are quite scarce in the original dust jackets. Here is the third printing. A large book and quality production, it is 866 pages with fold-out maps and illustrations, bound in an attractive, vertically scored red cloth. This is a superior copy for collectors, fine in a near-fine dust jacket. The red cloth binding is immaculate, with virtually no wear. We note only a hint of wrinkling at the spine ends. The contents are clean, bright, and tight. No spotting. No previous ownership marks. All fold-out maps and illustrations are present and pristine. Even the text block edges remain clean and bright. The black dust jacket of this edition proved particularly susceptible to wear and scuffing, perhaps owing to the thin paper of the dust jacket (which was printed black on white paper), and the size and weight of the book. Here is a notable example of this dust jacket. The jacket is highly complete and unclipped, still bearing the original $7.50 price on the front flap. Spine presentation is excellent, with Churchill's red facsimile signature entirely unfaded and only trivial wear at the head and tail. The front face bearing the prominent Churchill photo shows only mild wear at the edges. The white rear face is bright with almost no soiling and two tiny triangular chips - one at the top edge and another at the upper hinge. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Additional images are available upon request. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.5.c, Woods/ICS A31(ba), Langworth p.114

        Primes...calculated by the EDSAC 10 May 1949 AND The coordinating orders (first sheet only)

      Cambridge, 1949. Wheeler, David. (1) Primes . . . calculated by the Edsac 10 May 1949. Single dittoed typescript sheet. [Cambridge, 1949.] 255 x 202 mm. (2) The co-ordinating orders. 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. 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. "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). 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'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.

        The Oblong Blur and Other Odysseys

      New York: Farrar, Straus. 1949. First. First edition. Fine in an about very good, price-clipped, Birnbaum-designed dustwrapper with some chipping at the crown and rear panel, and other modest wear. This copy Inscribed, apparently to the wife of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author J.P. Marquand: "For Mrs. J.P. Marquand With all good wishes -- from Philip Hamburger (who does not swipe plates) N.Y.C. May, 1951" (the "Mrs." is smudged and could read "Mr."). In 1952 Hamburger wrote a biography of J.P. Marquand entitled J.P. Marquand Esquire: A Portrait in the Form of a Novel. This is the author's first book, a scarce collection of his often humorous columns from his first ten years with The New Yorker, with an interesting association. .

        The Post-War Speeches - a full set of jacketed U.S. first editions: The Sinews of Peace, Europe Unite, In the Balance, Stemming the Tide

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1949. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very good. Here is a full set of U.S. editions of Churchill's postwar speeches in the scarce dust jackets. These volumes span the period from immediately after the second World War, when Churchill was Leader of the Opposition, through the end of 1952, during his second Premiership. The events encompassed by these years are in many ways no less dramatic than those of the war years - the unraveling of the British Empire, the post-war recovery, the beginning of the Cold War, Soviet acquisition of the atomic bomb and U.S. invention of the hydrogen bomb. The U.S. postwar speeches were published in very small numbers, making jacketed U.S. editions much rarer than their British counterparts. Collectors should note that the U.S. postwar speeches are only four volumes, as the fifth and final volume, The Unwritten Alliance, had no U.S. edition. All four volumes offered here are in fine condition - clean, tight, and square with unfaded bindings, and bright contents. Three of the four dust jackets are unclipped, with only Stemming the Tide having a neatly price-clipped front flap. Stemming the Tide (one of only 1,850 printed and the scarcest of the four) is a bright and tight example with no spotting and no inscriptions. The dust jacket remains bright and clean, but shows light overall wear and minor chipping at spine ends. In the Balance (one of 2,000 printed) is a likewise fine book with no spotting and no inscriptions. The unclipped jacket retains the original $5.00 price on the front flap and his highly complete, with only minor wear and loss at the spine ends . Europe Unite (one of 2,500 printed) is a fine copy with a bright turquoise binding and tight, clean contents. No spotting and no inscriptions. The dust jacket is bright, clean, and complete, still bearing the $5.00 price on the front flap. Shelf presentation is excellent, with only a hint of color shift between the front face and the spine. What prevents this dust jacket from being near-fine or better is a 2.5 inch closed tear and associated wrinkling at the bottom of the front face. The Sinews of Peace (one of 3,000 printed) is clean and tight with an inked gift inscription dated 1949 on the ffep (from the "Women's Breakfast Club of Saginaw"). The dust jacket is clean, bright, and unclipped, still bearing the original $3.00 price on the front flap. Light wear is confined to the corners and spine extremities and two short closed tears at the hinge. All four dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A241.2, A246.2, A255.2, A264.2; Woods/ICS A124(b), A128(b), A130(b), A137(b); Langworth pages 285, 297, 302, 310

        Autograph Postcard Signed to the Publicity Director at New Directions

      Typed Postcard Signed to David McDowell of New Directions. Postmarked 29 November 1949 from Key West Monica providing a blurb for the American edition of Elio Vittorini's In Sicily (which was not used on the first American edition). Near fine. Good content, in full: "There is no warmer and sweeter spirit in the world today than that of the Italian and Sicilian peasantry. They are the true nobility of the world, and their spirit has been caught by Elio Vittorini's book IN SICILY. Tenn Williams. McDowell had a long and distinguished career in American publishing, working at New Directions, Random House, and Crown. For a short period in the late 1950s he and Ivan Obolensky published under their own imprint, most famously issuing the Pulitzer Prize-winning posthumous novel by his good friend James Agee, A Death in the Family. .

        Ballade du pauvre macchabé mal enterré *

      P.Cailler, Genève 1949. - En feuilles 36 x 28, couverture imprimée rempliée. L'un des 46 et quelques exemplaires, celui-ci numérotés, sur vélin pur chiffon Rives. 6 pointes sèches originales de Marc Gonthier. Pré publié en compagnie d'Apollinaire et de Salmon, chez Bernouard en 1919 avec des bois de Derain, ce long poème macabre a du être broché après coup comme en témoigne un feuillet qui a échappé au relieur. Autre bizarreté, le titre indique cinq et non six pointes sèches; en y regardant de plus près, nous avons remarqué qu'une des compositions, la deuxième, est en double (avec d'infimes différences d'état). Bonne provenance. Image visible sur site céleste.
