A clean, fine copy, with minimal shelf wear showing to cloth edges. The nearly complete (not price clipped) jacket is missing a quarter inch along top rear panel, and the fragile jacket flaps have been internally strengthened along fold with archival document tape. Seldom are copies found with such a nearly complete jacket, and particularly scarce with the author's signature.

      Los Angeles: Zeitlin & Ver Brugge,, 1949. With the "Carceri" Etchings by G. B. Piranesi. Critical Study by Jean Adhemar. Associate Curator of Prints Bibliothèque Nationale. Large quarto. Blue card wrappers, as issued, white title label to upper cover. Housed in the original cloth-backed portfolio. Frontispiece and 18 loose printed etchings by Piranesi, framed in a light card border. A fine copy. First edition, first impression. One of a limited edition of 212 numbered copies signed by Aldous Huxley, made on Renage paper of pure rag, of which this is numbered 114, part of the 100 copies subdivided for Zeitlin & Ver Brugge of Los Angeles. Piranesi's 18th-century "Carceri d'invenzione" etchings, nightmarishly imaginative creations at once proto-Romantic and proto-Surrealist, come together in this volume with Huxley's at once lyrical and chilling analysis of them, and of the intellectual history of prisons and criminality.

        On Composition of Programs for Automatic Computing

      Early photographic reproduction process of an unclassified, rare document for the Naval Ordnance Laboratory (Naval Ordnance Laboratory Memorandum 9805), 26 January 1949.  First sheet is detached from the staple, the rest are intact.  Very good condition.  52pp, including one figure.?A Study...of the planning of computations with a view to shortening the process and to systematizing it so that more work can be done by less technically trained personnel or by machines?.Ex-library, Library of Congress. Rare."In 1943 John W. Mauchly and Prespert J. Eckert were contracted to buildthe ENIAC, the first U.S. electronic digital and (basically)general-purpose computer. A ``Computations Committee'' was assembled in1945 to prepare for utilizing the machine after its completion. TheCommittee consisted of the number theorist D.H. Lehmer, the logician H.B.Curry, the astronomer L.B. Cunningham and the statistician F.L. Alt. Eachdeveloped their own test program to be run on the ENIAC after it was firstpresented to the public at Penn University February 15, 1946. The early(declassified) test programs are unique instances of ``programming'' amachine that had not the kind of logical design we know nowadays as thevon Neumann architecture. Any kind of programming language was totallyabsent.For each new problem, the ENIAC had to be programmed directly andlocally, setting the switches on each individual unit, laying the cablesto interconnect these units and control the timing and sequencing of theunits' operations. In this sense, programming the ENIAC in its originalconfiguration thus came down to ``the design and development of aspecial-purpose computer out of ENIAC component parts.'' (B. Fritz) Thereconstruction of the early test programs demonstrates the difficultiesinvolved with adapting computations made to human measure for a machine.They show the need for an intermediary language between man and machine.The current reconstruction of D.H. Lehmer's ENIAC program not onlydiscloses the various problems involved with early programming but isfurthermore a rare example of programming the non-rewired parallel ENIAC--ABSTRACT: "Haskell before Haskell: Curry's Contribution to Programming (1946-1950)"Liesbeth de Mol, (joint work with M. Bullynck) in Colloquium on the History of Computing."Haskell Curry was educated at Harvard and received a doctorate from Göttingen in 1930 for a thesis, supervised by Hilbert, entitled Grundlagen der kombinatorischen Logik. He taught at Harvard, Princeton, then for 35 years at Pennsylvania State University. During World War II Curry researched in applied physics at Johns Hopkins University. In 1966 he accepted the chair of mathematics at Amsterdam. Curry's main work was in mathematical logic with particular interest in the theory of formal systems and processes. He formulated a logical calculus using inferential rules. His works include Combinatory Logic (1958) (with Robert Feys) and Foundations of Mathematical Logic (1963).From the Penn State Site: ?Penn State's first contribution to electronic computing was the work of Haskell Curry, an expert on symbolic logic. Curry worked on the first electronic computer, called ENIAC, while on leave from Penn State during World War II. Curry's research in the 1950s into the foundations of combinatory logic was applied in 1986 in the Mitre Corporation's Curry Chip, an innovative piece of computer hardware based on Curry's concept of "combinators."

        URBANISTICA. Rivista dell'Istituto Nazionale Urbanistica - Direttore Adriano Olivetti.

      In-4 p., bross. figur. (4 dorsi con picc. manc.). Di questa importante rivista illustrata (con periodicità varia) offriamo una collezione completa di 55 numeri - in 45 fascicoli - dal n. 1 (luglio/agosto 1949, Anno XVIII) al n. 54/55 (settembre 1969). Fino al 1956 la direzione è di Adriano Olivetti, poi di Giovanni Astengo. Uniamo l'Indice analitico per gli annni 1949-60. Buon esemplare di tutta la raccolta. "Urbanistica" venne fondata nel 1932 (sottotitolo: Rivista della Sezione regionale piemontese dell?Istituto nazionale di Urbanistica) e fu sospesa dal 1946 al 1948. Dal punto di vista teorico e politico documenta, dal 1949 a oggi, le condizioni dello sviluppo urbano, i piani regolatori, gli studi preliminari, i materiali del dibattito urbanistico in Italia e all?estero. Alcuni numeri della rivista sono ancor oggi essenziali per la comprensione di questa storia: due esempi fra i tanti il n. 18-19/1956 dedicato al Piano Regolatore di Milano e il n. 28-29/1959 che include i piani regolatori di Roma dal 1880 alla seconda guerra mondiale. Tra il 1949 e il 1960 la vicenda di "Urbanistica" è profondamente connessa all?esperienza del Movimento Comunità e alla figura di Olivetti e si concentra sui temi della ricostruzione, di un?organica pianificazione del territorio e sull?esigenza (cara a Olivetti) di un?indispensabile ristrutturazione ammministrativa dello Stato. Importante è l'impaginazione e il progetto grafico della rivista, in particolare fra il 1949 e il 1965, periodo in cui opera Egidio Bonfante che disegna anche le copertine?. Cfr. Cat. Archivolto, n. 6, 1993 - Bianchetti 1987, p. 32-39.

        Physical Principles Involved in Transistor Action. [Offprint issue].

      (New York, Bell Telephone Laboratories, 1949). Offprint issue. Large 4to. 278x214 mm / 10.94x8.43 inches. Offprint from Bell System Technical Journal, Vol. 28, pp.239-277, April, 1949. Original printed wrappers with wholes punched in the back (as issued). Library stamp dated August 1949 on front wrapper. Fine condition. 18 pp. Fine and clean throughout.. First edition, offprint issue, of the first comprehensive report of the transistor - one of the most important inventions of the 20th Century. The invention of the transistor was first announced in three short letters by Bardeen, Brattain, Shockley, and Pearson, in The Physical Review (Number 2 Volume 74, 1948). The following year Bardeen and Brattain published the more comprehensive report "Physical Principles Involved in Transistor Action" (as offered here). This paper was simultaneously published, the same month, in The Physical Review (Number 8 volume 75). In 1956 Bardeen and Brattain shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with William Shockley "for their researches on semiconductors and their discovery of the transistor effect". In 1972 Bardeen again received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his part in the development of the theory of superconductivity (BCS-theory), and thus became the only person, until this day, to receive the Nobel Prize more than once in the same field. Hook & Norman: Origins of Cyberspace, No. 450 (the journal issue). Scarce in offprint

        La mort dans l'âme, roman. Les chemins de la liberté III. + manuscript-fragment for the novel.

      (Paris), Gallimard, (1949). Uncut and unopened in the orig. printed wrappers, excellent copy + original handwritten manuscript-leaf in ink, 2pp., 4to, for the pages 134-138 in the first edition, containing numerous corrections and emendations as well as a burnt hole from one of Sartre's cigarettes. The paper is watermarked "Herakles". Both items are placed in a very beautiful custom-made red full-morocco box, internally broadened to fit both items, w. single gilt line-borders to boards and back, beatifully gilt titles on back. The manuscript-fragment is placed in a red morocco-backed plastic-folder.. First edition of this splendid and important novel, without doubt the best of the novel-cycle, one of three copies out of commerce printed on "vergé antique blanc", numbered "C". The manuscript-fragment greatly varies from the printed leaves, and is probably part of Sartre's very first notes to the manuscript, which were written several years before the publication of the work. The work was announced already in 1945 under the title "La Dernière Chance", and was supposed to appear in "Les Temps modernes" in November 1947, but because the work grew to great, Sartre let it become part three of the novel-cycle "Les chemins de la liberté", instead of setting free the characters in the already printed novels (I and II) and casting them as main characters in new independent novels. This work represents one of Sartre's best literary works, and in it he presents us with the existentialist moral sentiments that were philosophically outlined in his main philosophical work, L'être et le néant, but this time in literary form."Le volume - qui est sans doute le meilleur de la série - fut écrit en 1947-1948 en même temps, notons-le que l'ébauche de la morale de l'existentialisme promise à la fin de L'ÊTRE ET LE NÉANT. Le première partie couvre chronologiquement la période du 1 au 18 juin 1940 et se termine en laissant Mathieu dans une situation particulièrement despérée; la deuxième partie décrit le début de captivité d'un groupe de soldats francais qui comprend le militant communiste Brunet et un certain Schneider que l'on soupconne d'être un indicateur." (Contat & Rybalka, p. 207).The first edition of the work appeared in 2163 copies , out of which 8 were on "vergé antique blanc", numbered I-V and A-C (the last three being "hors commerce"), 105 were on "vélin pur fil Lafuma Navarre", numbered VI-CV and D-H (the last five being "hors commerce"), and 2.050 on "alfa Navarre", numbered 1-2050 (the last 50 being "hors commerce").

The draft of 'A Phycisist Looks at Biology' has a long inscription with pencil to Niels Bohr on the first page: 'We have had two very nice evenings with Aage [Bohr] and his girl here in New York. I hope you will not be unhappy when you see this MS. It will be published eventually in Conn. Acad. journal, but can still be changed. It was a great pleasure to talk to Aage [Bohr] again and to see him happy, which he has every reason to be. / M.D.'** As a young visitor in Copenhagen, Niels Bohr's interests in the relation between physics and biology, and the possible limitations for the physical description of living organisms, inspired Delbrück to become a biologist. For his biological research he received the 1969 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine

        Typewritten manuscript letter with hand written equations.

      18 pages, dated January 24th, 1949.. From the library of Niels Bohr.** This letter with 'considerations stimulated by a careful study of your 'Part II'' was sent from Nobel Prize Winner Wolfgang Pauli (Physics 1945) to Nobel Prize Winner Julian Schwinger (Physics 1965), but this copy was sent to Niels Bohr. Pauli was a frequent visitor in Niels Bohr's Copenhagen Institute of Theoretical Physics, and remained in close contact with his mentor and life-long friend Bohr. Bohr called Pauli "the Conscience of Physics", since he was an extremely precise, observant and often acidic critic of the development of quantum physics until his death in 1958
