        Communications in the Presence of Noise" in Proceedings of the IRE [The Institute of Radio Engineers] 37, No. 1, January 1949, pp. 10-21

      Institute of Radio Engineers, New York 1949 - TRUE FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PRINTED WRAPS OF CLAUDE SHANNON'S MATHEMATICAL PROOF & REFINEMENT OF NYQUIST'S SAMPLING THEOREM (now Nyquist-Shannon), "THE BACKBONE OF MODERN COMMUNICATIONS" (Gran, Numerical Computing, 136). Following this publication, the paper appeared in Bell Telephone's Technical Publications. Shannon's paper, a manuscript first written in 1940 but held from publication until after WWII ended, "set the foundation of information theory. [It] is a masterpiece both in terms of achievement and conciseness. It is undoubtedly one of the theoretical works that has had the greatest impact on modern electrical engineering" (Unser, Sampling, 1). Note that we offer the Nyquist paper separately. An American mathematician and engineer, Claude Shannon is most often connected to the sampling theorem which bears his name. "Shannon is considered the father of information theory, which laid the foundation for digital communications and source compression, and ultimately, the information society as we know it" (Vetterli, Signal Processing, 498). The Nyquist-Shannon theorem is the principle by which engineers are able to digitize analog signals. In order that the analog-to-digital conversion produces a faithful reproduction of the original signal, slices - called samples - of the analog waves must be taken often, with the number taken per second known as the sampling rate. The samples are bridges that allow engineers to span analog signals (continuous) and digital signals (discrete). While working at Bell Labs in 1924, Harry Nyquist's work centered upon the obvious need to improve the speed with which data transmission was carried over the wires. Toward this end, Nyquist made two significant distinctions, one related to signal shaping and the second to the choice of codes (Norman). "The first is concerned with the best shape to be impressed on the transmitting medium so as to permit greater speed without undue interference either in the circuit under consideration or in those adjacent, while the latter deals with the choice of codes which will permit of transmitting a maximum amount of intelligence with a given number signal elements" (Nyquist, "Certain Factors?" BSTJ 3, 1924, p. 324). Nyquist's 1924 paper established the principles by which continuous signals could be converted into digital signals. "According to the Sampling Theorem, an analog signal must be sampled? at twice the frequency of its highest-frequency component to be converted into an adequate representation of the signal in digital form. Thus, the "Nyquist frequency" is the highest frequency that can be accurately sampled. It represents one-half of the sampling frequency. Adhering to the Nyquist Sampling Theorem ensures no lost data upon reconstruction in the analog domain" (Maliniak, Electronic Design, Oct. 20, 2005). Shannon's paper presented the first formal proof of the concepts the Nyquist theorem proposed. In order to convert an analog signal into a sequence of numbers, Shannon devised a geometric proof of the theorem that establishes the famous formula W log (1 + S) for the capacity of a channel with bandwidth W, additive thermal (i.e., Gaussian) noise, and signal-to-noise ratio S" (History of Science: The Wenner Collection). With this, he was able to show that if the interval between the intensity measurements is less than half the period of the highest frequency in the signal, it will then be possible to faithfully reconstruct the original signal from the digital values recorded (Shannon, 1949). CONDITION AND DETAILS: New York: Institute of Radio Engineers. 4to. No institutional stamps. Original printed wrappers with some rubbing at the front wrap and spine (see photos).

        Modern Arms and Free Men: A Discussion of the Role of Science in Preserving Democracy (SIGNED)

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1949. 1st. Hardcover. First Edition. Advance Copy INSCRIBED to Stanford University President Wallace Sterling "To Wallace Sterling/with cordial regards/Vannevar Bush." Octavo; (xiv), 273, (1)pp. Laid in is a 2 1/4" x 4" card ('Advance Copy/Publication Date, Nov. 21') along with a publisher's reply post card. Very Good in publisher's red cloth stamped in gold on black background on spine and upper board. The book's spine is lightly sunned with a scratch to spine lettering; the bright price-clipped dust jacket has light extremity wear and a few closed tears. As chairman of the National Defense Research Committee and later director of the U.S. Office of Scientific Research and Development, Vannevar Bush coordinated the activities of ~ six thousand leading American scientists in the application of science to warfare. In his 1945 report to President Truman, Bush called for an expansion of government support for science, and urged the creation of the National Science Foundation. He has been called the "Architect of the military-industrial complex," but he was fearful of military control of scientific research, and this book was his warning that the militarization of American science would be harmful. Wallace Sterling, president of Stanford University from 1949-1968, oversaw the school's growth to become the internationally recognized "Harvard of the West" (earning Sterling the sobriquet "Stanford's man with the Midas touch" for his fundraising ability). Stanford Industrial Park, which eventually received great government support, was founded under Sterling and Provost Professor Frederick Terman (who had been Bush's student at MIT).

        Microscopy by Reconstructed Wavefronts" in Proceedings of the Royal Society London A 197, 1949, pp. 454-487

      BOUND FIRST EDITION OF GABOR'S FIRST EXTENSIVE PRESENTATION OF HIS 1971 NOBEL PRIZE WINNING "INVENTION & DEVELOPMENT OF THE HOLOGRAPHIC METHOD" (Nobel Prize). This work includes Gabor's first use of the word 'hologram' as well as three photographic plates. In 1948 Gabor sent a brief announcement of his new technology to Nature, then calling it an 'electron interference microscope' (Gabor, Nature, 161, 1948, p. 778). We offer that work separately. In 1947, the Hungarian physicist Dennis Gabor began his first steps toward improving the electron microscope; he wanted to produce "an instrument that could 'see' individual atoms" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography, Sup., 17, 325). Gabor understood that "despite gradual improvements in the resolving power of electron microscopes, a theoretical barrier set by a compromise between diffraction effects at the aperture edge and spherical aberration placed crucial practical limits short of the resolution needed to focus atomic lattices… Otto Scherzer first pointed out the limitation posed by spherical aberration in 1936 and attempted to calculate the limit to resolving power set by various imperfections… in 1943 the exact rule was elaborated by Walter Glaser. "For Gabor this provided just the kind of challenge his inventive mind needed. The barrier to progress was of a technical nature, yet formidable… Gabor had been searching for the 'trick' to get around the barrier of the theoretical limit to resolution… He was sitting on a bench at a local tennis club in 1947 when an idea suddenly came to him: Why not take an electron picture distorted by lens imperfections and correct it by optical means? A few calculations convinced him he was right. "Gabor [proposed] a two-stage process. In the first stage an interference pattern produced by the interaction of electrons diffracted by the object and a separate but coherent reference beam of electrons would be photographically recorded on transparent film. Gabor argued that this interference pattern, or "hologram" [as he would later call it in this paper] would carry the complete information needed to reconstruct an image of the object, using an optical system free from the limitations of electron optics. In the second stage, the hologram would be scaled up by a factor in the ratio of the wavelength of the light used in the reconstruction to the wavelength of the electron beam. The new hologram would then be illuminated with a light wave of the same aberration as the electron wave to, in theory, reveal an exact replica of the original object, magnified by the scaling factor" (ibid 326). "In 1947, Gabor began experiments "to establish the principle by using a purely optical model - that is, using visible light instead of electrons - with a mercury vapor lamp as a source of coherent light, to produce the interference photographs of simple two-dimensional images. Five months later he was able to show his close confidant Lawrence Bragg his first successful wavefront reconstructions: hazy images of simple printed words used as objects [three plates of these photographs accompany the paper]. Even when Bragg fully understood the theory, he still stated that it was a miracle it should work. "The first public indication of Gabor's success came with a preliminary note to Nature [in 1948]. The following year he wrote a more complete theoretical treatment [this paper] in which he introduced the word 'hologram' and indicated possible applications in light optics. Among these was the ability, using the same method, to record the data associated with 3-D objects in one interference object" (ibid). In the abstract this paper, Gabor very simply outlines what holography is and how it works: "The subject of this paper is a new two-step method of optical imagery. In a first step the object is illuminated with a coherent monochromatic wave, and the diffraction pattern resulting from the interference of the coherent secondary wave issuing from the object with the strong, coherent background is recorded on a photographic plate. If the photographic plate, suitably processed, is replaced in the original position and illuminated with the coherent background alone, an image of the object will appear behind it, in the original position" (Gabor, PRS, 1949, 454). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Royal Society. Complete volume. 4to. (250 x 175mm). [iv], 576, [4]. 17 plates and in-text illustrations throughout. Armorial bookplate on front pastedown; small library stamps on verso of title and rear pastedown; discreet gilt-institutional numbers at the foot of the spine. Tightly bound in blue buckram; some rubbing at the edges of the spine and boards. Clean and bright throughout. Very good.

        A Comparison of the Use of Nike and Zeus in Antiaircraft Defense

      George S. Pappas, Fort Bliss, Texas 1949 - Manila folder bound. Softcover. Handtyped and illustrated by author. Good binding and cover. Shelfwear. Secret stamps on each page and illustration, blacked out. Library of Congress Duplicate stamp on front cover. Espionage Act stamp to front cover and inside cover. Foldout map and illustrations on inside folder on back flap. Letter from Col. Joseph C. Moore relating his comments on this monograph. Clean, unmarked pages. This Secret document is an early study of comparison of the Nike and Zeus project at the forefront of the Cold War. Project Nike was a U.S. Army project, proposed in May 1945 by Bell Laboratories, to develop a line-of-sight anti-aircraft missile system. The project delivered the United States' first operational anti-aircraft missile system, the Nike Ajax, in 1953. Given that the Nike Zeus project was not started until the late 1950s, the Zeus in this document is most likely the Nike Ajax missile. In the end of this document the author suggests that either the Nike program be scrapped or modified to be more suitable for use by troops and that the Zeus missile should be the future focus of the project. Colonel George S. Pappas enlisted in the U.S. Army in June of 1939 and was assigned to the 6th Coast Artillery Regiment at Fort Winfield Scott. While stationed there, he attended the West Point Preparatory School and was admitted to the U.S. Military Academy three years after Colonel Short. Graduating on D-Day in 1944, he received a commission with the Anti-Aircraft and Air Defense Artillery at Schofield Barracks Army Base in Honolulu, Hawaii. After World War II, he attended the University of Wisconsin, graduating with a Master's degree in Journalism in 1949 and then worked at West Point in the 1950s. Following an appointment to the Commander-in-Chief of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and the completion of courses at the Command and General Staff College, Colonel Pappas went to Korea with the 8th Army. Upon graduating from the U.S. Army War College at Carlisle Barracks in 1966, he was assigned to the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), the central command of NATO military forces. He returned to the Army War College as Assistant Chief of the Research and Publications Branch and was instructed to write a comprehensive history of the college; this work was published in 1967 under the title Prudens Future: The U.S. Army War College, 1901-1967. With this task accomplished, he turned his attention to building the U.S. Army Military Research Collection (MHRC). By 1970, it had become the central historical repository for the entirety of the U.S. Army's collection. The majority of the Colonel Pappas collection now resides at the Center of Military History.

        Original charcoal and gouache drawing of an old woman wearing a white head scarf, 9 ½ x 13 inches, on brown paper, inscribed "Your sincere friend Mina Loy", undated but circa 1949-1952

      - Although best known as one of the most important early modernist poets, Mina Loy was highly regarded as an artist. In drawings, paintings, collages, decorated lampshades, and relief constructions, she earned the admiration of Joseph Cornell, Marcel Duchamp, among many others. She attended art schools in London, Munich, and Paris and exhibited at some of the more famous art shows of the early 20th Century, including the 1905 Salon d'Automne in Paris, the 1914 Free Exhibition of International Futurists in Rome, the 1917 Independents' Exhibition in New York City, in addition to being shown later at the gallery of her son-in-law, Julien Levy, in New York. By the early 1950s, Loy was living in a small apartment in New York City, where her most ambitious art works, the assemblages and constructions based on her experiences and encounters with the down and out in the Bowery, were created.This drawing, which is undated, must have been done between 1949-1952, during the period when Loy was living in Irene Klempner's communal boarding house in the Bowery, a period in which Loy's intense interest in the life around her was engaged: "From Mina's perspective, the bums represented her lifelong fear of "outcasting." To most people they were human wreckage, indistinguishable in their grime and degradation, but in her eyes they were individuals with habits and histories. Within weeks of her move to Stanton Street, she had made friends with the regulars and introduced them to members of the household as "red" or "Whitey." . . . she sketched them from her window and sent them on errands so that she could give them a quarter." Loy began making assemblages using materials found on the streets of the Bowery, at the same time as she was writing poems such as "Hot Cross Bum": "While writing "Hot Cross Bum," Mina was constructing Bowery scenes with materials which, like her poetic images, were taken from the street. Like Picasso's collages, Mina's assemblages were incongruous couplings of commonplace objects, and like Duchamp's ready-mades, they seemed to thumb their nose at middle-class culture. But unlike either of these innovative recyclers, Mina brought to her shabby materials an acute sense of the cost involved for those who searched the garbage cans: rather than passing as outsides, as they avant-garde had done, they actually lived at the bottom of the heap. . . . In these new works, she was reflecting on her own perspective, that of a person of higher status looking from her window at the derelicts below. But to understand her constructions, one had to see through her eyes. When she showed the bums in low relief, she mocked an artistic trend that made it unthinkable to treat subjects of such low status that they went "on relief." And while her objects adopted the outside stance of the Salon des Refusés, her refuse was recombined not to assail artistic convention, as Duchamp had done, but to make it more responsive. As a name for these disturbing objects, she proposed "Refusees" - a punning blend of refuse, Refusés, and refugees, which summed up her long itinerary from West Hampstead to the Bowery." - Carolyn Burke, Becoming Modern: The Life of Mina Loy (N. Y.: Farrar Straus Giroux, 1996), pp. 409-420. The touching inscription on this drawing suggests the possibility that it might have been given to the subject of the drawing, although we have no way of tracing provenance back to its original owner. In light of the fact that the drawing was done on a piece of scrap paper, as its edges indicate, and may well have been given to the subject, a woman Mina Loy met on the Bowery, the drawing is in very good condition. Framed and glazed.
