        Albert Einstein: Philosopher-Scientist.

      Library of Living Philosophers, Evanston 1949 - Signed limited first edition, one of 760 copies signed and dated "Albert Einstein '49." Octavo, original brown cloth, top edge gilt, original slipcase. The book is in fine condition, the slipcase is in fine condition. Housed in the original publisher's cardboard. An absolute pristine example, which has been stored in the original cardboard box since publication. Edited by Paul Arthur Schhilpp. Rare and desirable in this condition. Written by the man considered the "Person of the Century" by Time magazine, this is not a glimpse into Einstein's personal life, but an extension and elaboration into his thinking on science. Two of the great theories of the physical world were created in the early 20th century: the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. Einstein created the theory of relativity and was also one of the founders of quantum theory. Here, Einstein describes the failure of classical mechanics and the rise of the electromagnetic field, the theory of relativity, and of the quanta. "The greatest physicist of the 20th century" (PMM 408). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        [Typed Letter, Signed ("Cyril Connolly") with Manuscript Post-script, and an Autograph Letter, Signed ("Cyril C")]

      2 Landsdowne Terrace, Guilford Street, London, 1949. Four pages, closely written, on rectos and versos of two octavo sheets of HORIZON letterhead. Folded for mailing, but very good, the first accompanied by the mailing envelope addressed in Connolly's hand. Two uncommonly good, friendly literary letters to fellow editor and author Phyllis Feldkamp, at LIFE magazine in New York (the earlier letter addressed to her as Miss Phyllis Larsh), sending her best wishes in her marriage), submitting a piece for publication, complimenting her on her own work and remarking on her observations about F. Scott Fitzgerald: " ... I include one or two paragraphs which I have had to cut from the HORIZON version ... in case you would rather cut other ones ... I think it stands on its own as an essay ... related to the question of the American literary scene and its advantages and disadvantages for a European ... There is rather a lot about Auden in my Introduction because to the English reader he is the test case on the question of transplantation. He also happened to be the first person I saw ..." ; "... Alan Ross came to dinner & we talked about Osbert Sitwell in America ... & he asked me if I saw anyone more beautiful in America than I had seen in Europe and I told him about you ... I never knew you were a Fitzgerald expert. I was fascinated by what you wrote, most interesting & obviously quite correct. He was far too chic to worry about being Irish and in that story about the Swedish blondes making love in the hot summer evening ... he looks down on them & has no inferiority feelings ... But I think the jilting was a blow all the same as one is so terribly vulnerable at that age. Thank you so much for the information about Zelda ... Hergesheimer called her 'a very deleterious woman' ... & attributed all his (F's) troubles to her. Your letter shows you are a very good critic indeed and I beg you to work these up into an article for me. Unless you wd rather write about the U.S. poets? ... I think [it is] profoundly true (about her disintegration disintegrating him) -- I talked of you with Truman Capote this summer in Paris ... I am not happy but in a disastrous state of callous & frivolous despair. ..." He also discusses at length matters relating to a special American number of HORIZON.

        Photo album and scrapbook compiled in postwar Japan and Thailand

      Tokyo 1949 - Folio (370 x 300 mm). Contemporary binding of elaborate, padded Japanese-style silk with silk ties. 36 heavy black paper leaves containing 289 photographs mounted with silver album corners (many taken by Barker but some being shots sold to tourists), 45 colour postcards, and numerous other postcards, cards, newspaper clippings, cocktail napkins, manuscript letters, telegrams, and advertising ephemera. Minor fraying and untying of the lower silk ties, a few items that were previously mounted now lacking, just a little minor rubbing and mild creasing to a small number of photos. Excellent condition. A remarkable photo album and scrapbook compiled in Occupied Japan and Thailand by a Far East Air Forces clerk, offering a historical record of a young American woman's adventures in a world newly opened to her. The compiler, Margaret Barker, graduated in Des Moines, Iowa and worked as a clerk and stenographer just before the Second World War began. When the US entered the war she joined the Air Force and worked in Washington D.C. and Pasadena, and then in Guam with the Far East Air Forces. Barker was stationed at the Tokyo headquarters in 1949, where she remained until the end of 1952, when she returned to the United States and lived in San Francisco, where she worked at the Hamilton Air Force Base. Barker was clearly an engaged traveler, and this album is a superb historical record of Occupied Japan. It includes pictures of the Army Hall in downtown Toyko where she worked, urban street scenes, women and children in traditional dress, day-to-day activities in small towns and rural villages, well-known tourist sites, friends and Air Force coworkers during leisure activities, and even the ruins of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Two pages contain Barker's photographs of the Cherry Blossom festival, with a fabulous series depicting schoolchildren and their teachers in kimonos under a blossoming tree. Another series comprises six attractive and carefully staged photos of young women in traditional dress. Barker saved numerous photographs and postcards from trips around Japan, having visited the temples at Kyoto, the famous Nara Park deer, the smoking Mt. Aso (Japan's largest active volcano), and the iconic floating Torii gate of the Itsukushima Shrine. There are six large, engaging photos of cormorant fishers at work, including night shots (probably professional photographs for the tourist market). A full page (containing two photographs by Barker and six that are probably photos sold to tourists) is devoted to the Ama, the famous female pearl divers, probably on the Izu Peninsula. Ten pages hold photos from Barker's trip to Thailand with a group of FEAF employees, beginning with photos of Barker and a man, who appears frequently in the album and may have been her boyfriend Ed, in front of a plane at an airfield. There are numerous views of temples, street scenes, religious sculptures, and Bangkok street life. Among the ephemera are two newspaper clippings about the trip, one with a photo of Barker showing off a piece of souvenir jewellery to fellow FEAF employee who had also been on the trip. The final four pages contain photographs from a family visit in the midwest in 1952 or early 1953. Among the charming ephemera are postcards, greeting cards, cocktail napkins, engravings, business cards, and wedding invitations, and there is also a heartfelt telegram sent from Ed, then in San Francisco, on Valentine's Day, "Love to my Valentine. You are more than ever in my thoughts at this time. I wish we together on this special occasion". Overall a fascinating and evocative album documenting the life of an American woman in Occupied Japan. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Nineteen Eighty-Four A Novel

      London: Secker & Warburg,, 1949. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in red, top edge red. With the red dust jacket. Spine ends a little faded; an excellent copy in the jacket with unusually bright spine panel, spine ends and tips a little nicked and chipped, spot of rubbing to centre of spine panel, closed tear to head of rear panel. 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, surviving copies in nice condition are uncommon.

        Le Paradoxe d'Aytré, manuscrit original et tapuscrit

      First new version of the autograph manuscript of 17 pages, written in 1935. Manuscript writing very dense, full excluding the last 13 lines of printed text, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Complete typescript with a few variations from the manuscript and a copy of the first edition published in 1947 and finally published in 1950 is attached. In 1935, Blanchot has been working for 3 years on Thomas the Obscure (he completed in 1940) when interrupts his writing "that would not stop" to write the last word, a short story he describes as "an attempt to bypass another book underway to overcome the interminable and get a more linear narrative, yet painfully complex, a silent decision ... ". In 1983, Blanchot, referring to the motivations of this "innocent text where murderers omens of future time resounded," can not say "how it is written and how unknown requirement, it has the answer." "It was not a text for publication," he says in the afterword of hindsight. The last word will indeed published 12 years later in 550 copies in the collection golden age (although it went bankrupt at the same time, the book will be on sale in 1950) . So the first story is meant at once the last word and the refusal of its unveiling. "Surely begin to write immediately to achieve at the end (...), this means at least hope not to make a career and finding the shortest path to finish early." In this "Apocalypse" Blanchot leads his own novel being written: Thomas, the hero, and is ironically called the new power otherwise without express "what happened to him [that] saying nothing happened ". But if, starting with the last word, Blanchot marks the end of writing, it is an end that remains unpublished. And when the book is finally published, it will be more of a work already substantial: Thomas the Obscure, Amminadab, Faux pas, the Most High, Death Sentence and The Share of fire. Therefore, the last word is not "waiver be Master and Judge," but a written waiver of this "itself in vain." It can no longer be "the unusual resolution to deprive [Language] to support (...) that is to say more than language" but, as part of the work, there is a "word to say and do not say. ". A word rewritten by the writer he became transformed by writing and by war. This is the inaugural version, first draft of thirty young Blanchot, we present here and C. Bident his biographer, thought "probably never know." Narrative foundation, basic writing, many scholars have studied the last man, "painfully complicated" as even the author, but who calls a few "prophetic" pages a reflection on language (and, through him, totalitarianism) marking the second part of the century. Now we present the manuscript written in 1935 and until then unknown, differs considerably from the following two versions of 1947 and 1983. Written in the third person (the later will they, homodiégétiques) the story is much longer. It contains descriptions and including many deleted scenes that will be removed in the published versions: "The sun bathed [plaza] a fiery light of huge mirrors, placed at the four corners, be kicked around in a maze of colors . "" A cloud was soon raised to the ceiling, black cloud crossed by small glowing patches. "" I am worried, he said. I was wrong to leave earlier this house when I get home, surrounded by torches are extinguished one by one. What will I find now? How to live without I guideline? Can you tell me anything? "" Some children, head blackened coal, removed the sand in which they were buried, and trying to achieve with small white stones they drew from their pocket, they reviled in their incomprehensible language. "" Taking advantage of the lull, dogs out of their hole, as if they had been secretly excited by a master, they rushed to the sleeper by pulling on their links. They tried to right, left, then discovering it under the covers, they are slipped badly, small first, then the big dog, like a vicious bunch of kids. "" The intoxication of being together having lost younger pushed them into their own home as if she had ceased to be theirs, and they threw screams waking intruders from their homes. "But this manuscript provides the exegete especially demonstrative few passages that provide clarification on the meaning of the story:" Until is not an indifferent manner to the past and the future. If it is intended to extend a veil over what approach, if a link between, by mutual repulsion, separate time moments it appears from something, something else is not shown, however, that such limit. "" They whom nothing was forbidden to speak and who knew, behaved as if their knowledge had been to break with the language. "" The disciple on this admission, redoubled adoration, give themselves shots that change them into what they can be. At first common deception, they ran, one to an animal world, the other to a riveted himself a slave. "" They wanted to laugh again nonsense, is torturing a lie, but, having no other way to stand as the apotheosis, they lost sight of their mutual desire for death and blissfully enjoyed the rest. "A key reading these valuable addition changes that reflect real shifts of the author. If the most important is, of course, the choice of the first person in later versions, some lexical variations are also very significant. Thus: "I offer the spectacle of my vices" in the manuscript and typescript 1935 becomes: "I offer the spectacle of my mistakes" in the published version of the same in 1947. "This is an extract from the speech the third city "becomes" This is an excerpt of the speech on the third on the third State "; "A noise (...) was one stroke the whole town" becomes "was one stroke all the people" and "... on a deck of onomatopoeia" becomes "... a gateway ranting." Finally, it is a lyrical Blanchot that reveals this "abrupt call of language": "She had her hair hanging these broad wings velvet are a promise of transformation." "... When the sun casting its light shining against the mirrors everywhere, stopped above the esplanade and heard this loud voice, private mysteriously vowels and consonants, which announces the sharing of spaces" "Shouts of the crowd came and brought calls for an immense distress. "" He ran on the book and bit his teeth, as if he had made insensitive despite the bitterness of those old pages. ". In hindsight Blanchot hesitate to comment, however, that this text provides for the third time and he took care to revise again, 50 years after its first release. However, it brings some bits of explanations that reveal the importance of this little story in the life and work of one of the most mysterious writers of the twentieth century: "The last word has to tell main line, as having instead, the total wreck, the narrative itself can not therefore be preserved, and impossible or absurd, unless he should claim prophetic, heralding a future in the past already there or saying there always when there is nothing: either there wearing nothing and prevent the annihilation that it can not escape its long-term process which is rehashing and eternity.

        Chess Player's Chronicle, The

      London: C Skeet, 1949. 374+vi pages with diagrams and index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in period cloth with blind stamped covers with gilt insignia, and gilt decoration and lettering to spine. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume X. (Betts: 7-1) First edition.The Chess Player's Chronicle, founded by Howard Staunton and extant from 1841–56 and 1859–62, was the world's first successful English-language magazine devoted exclusively to chess. Various unrelated but identically or similarly named publications were published until 1902. The earliest chess magazine in any language was the French Le Palamède, published in 1836-39 and 1842-47. In 1837 George Walker introduced an English-language magazine, the Philidorian, that was devoted to "chess and other scientific games". Only six issues of it were published, and it "expired in May, 1838". The Chess Player's Chronicle became the first successful English-language chess magazine. In 1840 or 1841 Staunton bought the fortnightly magazine The British Miscellany and Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1841 it became The Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1843, the Chess Player's Chronicle became a shilling monthly magazine. Staunton "made the inclusion of a large number of games by himself and other leading players of the day a special feature" of the magazine. He also used the magazine as a forum for attacking others. Staunton was the owner and editor of the magazine until the early 1850s, when he sold it to R.B. Brien. O'Brien became editor of the magazine, but was unable to continue its success and discontinued it in 1856 because of financial losses and his own illness. It reappeared in 1859 under the editorship of Ignatz Kolisch, Zytogorski, and Josef Kling, but survived only until July 1862. Thereafter, a number of magazines appeared with the same or similar name (such as Chess Players' Chronicle) appeared. Arthur Skipworth, assisted by William Wayte and Charles Ranken, wrote The Chess Players' Quarterly Chronicle, which was published in York from February 1868 to December 1871. Skipworth, who had left Bilsdale for Tetford Rectory, Horncastle, and John Wisker became the editors of the new The Chess Players' Chronicle in February 1872. Johann Löwenthal began writing for it in 1873. The magazine ran until 1875. In January 1876, it was succeeded by The Chess Player's Chronicle, whose editor-in-chief was J. Jenkin of Helensburgh. Its editorial staff consisted of Jenkin, Skipworth, Ranken, Wayte, and Andrew Hunter of Glasgow. Billed as a "monthly record of provincial chess", it was published at Glasgow, costing sixpence. Its short run under Jenkin's editorship was marked by xenophobia. The February issue stated that the West End Club had "cleared away the disturbing foreign element which whilom infected the Divan" and referring to Wilhelm Steinitz as "the hot-headed little Austrian". Its third and last issue was published in March. The magazine reappeared in January 1877. It was now under Ranken's editorship, assisted by J. Crum, G. B. Fraser, Skipworth, and Wayte. The first issue apologized for "certain offensive statements and insinuations, seriously affecting the honor of some eminent players", and explained that some members of the present editorial staff had only contributed games and other inoffensive material to it in 1875. Ranken continued to edit the magazine until September 1880. In 1881, the title was enlarged to The Chess Player's Chronicle, and Journal of Indoor and Outdoor Sports, and "the magazine's importance in the chess world was no longer the same". None of these magazines compared in quality with what Staunton had achieved, and the success of the British Chess Magazine, by the turn of the century a superb magazine, put an end to the title in 1902.Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri’s family lived in the country, located about 45 miles from Pigüé. The family was engaged in agriculture. When Ruggieri was 8, his father purchased a home in Pigüé, where he lived until 2008. In 1938 he was involved in an accident and he was transferred to Buenos Aires for recovery. This was the beginning of his hobby of chess, both as a player over the board and by correspondence, but as well as a major collector of chess materials. After his recovery he became a prominent local chess player and very good representative in postal chess, where he represented Argentina in matches against Italy, Yugoslavia, Holland and other countries. He was using the correspondence with his rivals to offer exchanges. Ruggieri was related to Mr Niemeijer and soon began exchanging materials and making important purchases. He also had frequent contacts with Gregorio Lastra, Normando Ivaldi, Gaspar Soria and Carlos De Veyga, all known collectors of chess. He died in 2009 in 2009 at the age of 88.Condition:Corners bumped, Ruggieri's stamp to front end paper, earlier owner's stamp to title, some pencil notations through out, small circular label to spine heal, spine sunned, some occasional foxing to preliminary and title pages else a very good copy.

        Memories 1875-1895: Happenings here and there along the Trail, or "The World went very Well then." A Victorian tale gleaned from Memories and Told for the Edification of Fellow Typhophiles By wb

      Pasadena: The Castle Press, 1949. First Edition, one of 300 copies printed for The Typophiles. Illustrated with portrait frontispiece and line drawings. 8vo. Original gray-green Fabriano paper wrappers, stitched, with 4 pp. Supplement laid in, fine. In custom folding chemise and cloth slipcase. First Edition, one of 300 copies printed for The Typophiles. Illustrated with portrait frontispiece and line drawings. 8vo. Signed by Will Bradley, With His ALS and Corrected Proof. Delightful recollections, enhanced by a photographic frontispiece of the youthful Bradley, with luxuriant sideburns, under which he has written the date 1885 and signed his name. WITH BRADLEY'S CORRESPONDENCE TO DAVID SILVE, OF THE TYPOPHILES, comprising: ALS, dated "Friday" to "Dear David": "Just an advance copy. Will send more soon as supplement is ready. Also will send Typophile assignment as soon as you gived directions where and when to ship. Not much to have waited so long to see--but mine best under circumstances that gave me only odd moments of the necessary freedom. Please take the spirit for the deed. It has been a true labor of love in spite of its shortcomings"; Corrected galley of a portion of the book's MS dealing with Richard Harding Davis, on which Bradley has written in pencil: "David--This is the only place where I allowed my thoughts freedom [.] It comes at the end, The other episodes are all told briefly, and they refer to printing and designing conditions at the time. Please do not let this get beyond the "Three Musqueteers". As you will see--it was fun making the typish decorations--or illustrations." On the proof are minor corrections in red, a greater correction (changing "our author" to "Mr. Davis", and "Ave." to "Avenue" which did not prevent the final printing of the word as "Avenus". The most profound, and poignant, change, however, is the one referred to, above: Bradley has eliminated the words "and you are feeling a bit crestfallen..." after the words "But presently we see you on a Fifth Ave. bus". --Typed note by Bradley, presumably to Silve, reading, in part, "I must tell you that as a result of the uplift your enthusiasm about the Davis episode gave me I have been able to get a new note into the rest of the MMS. This has been made possible by the additional paper. I am glad the edition is limited to the Typophiles. It was a story written for them. It will of course be copyrighted. It is grand to have that cover! I shall try to follow your suggestion and put a little punch into the design. And "our author". Thanks for catching this..."; Printed post card to Typophile members concerning the celebration of Bradley's 80th birthday at the regular Wednesday luncheon, July 7; Carbon of a letter from Silve to Bruce Barton dated June 23, 1954, concerning plans for the celebration of Bradley's 86th birthday. On May 20, Bradley had received the AIGA gold medal for his contribution to the graphic arts.

        The BINAC. A product of the Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corp.

      N.P. Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corp. 1949. Rare sales brochure for Eckert and Mauchly's BINAC, the first operational stored-program computer in the United States. ?Origins of Cyberspace 1145. J. Presper Eckert, together with his partner John Mauchly, invented and constructed the first general-purpose digital computer (the ENIAC) during World War II. After the war he and Mauchly founded the first commercial computer company in the United States, the Electronic Control Co., soon renamed the Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation. While developing the UNIVAC for the U. S. Census Bureau, Eckert and Mauchly contracted with the Northrop Aircraft Company in southern California to develop and construct a BINary Automatic Computer (BINAC). The contract was signed in October 1947, with Northrop providing $80,000 up front; another $20,000 was due upon delivery of the machine. "Had it been finished on time [i.e., by May 15, 1948] it would have been in contention with the British computers at Manchester and Cambridge as the first working electronic stored-program computer. In reality it ran its first program in the late summer of 1949 and, as a consequence, became the first operational computer in America but not in the world" (Williams, pp. 361-2). With both input and output in base 8 (a compact way of representing binary values), the BINAC's design made it very difficult to use; in addition BINAC's complex and delicate machinery suffered in the delivery from Philadelphia to California, so much so that it was never able to function effectively as a production machine. Only one BINAC was ever made. "The BIN in BINAC stood for "binary" and this was significant in at least two respects. First, the design called for a serial machine which would be capable of performing high-speed arithmetic on binary numbers with no provision to store characters or decimal digits. Secondly, BINAC was really two machines in one; every part of the machine was constructed as a pair of systems to check each operation. Any instruction would be executed once by each unit, the result compared between the units and, if identical, the next instruction in sequence would be initiated. If any discrepancy was found between the two halves of the machine, it halted. "Besides the innovative approach of using two parallel machines to check each other and the one large tank design of the mercury delay-lines [which provided the machine's memory], the BINAC was the first to employ magnetic tape as a secondary memory and auxiliary input device" (ibid. p. 362). Published the year BINAC was delivered, the flyer contains the computer's statistics, a brief outline of its elements and general characteristics, coding instructions, and a conversion table comparing decimal, coded decimal, binary, and octal numbers. A full-page illustration shows the various components of the system. The document was likely produced for distribution when the machine was being demonstrated to interested parties. It may be the only document extant that gives the complete instruction set (sixteen instructions) for BINAC. Few copies of this brochure would have been distributed, as only one machine was sold, and Eckert-Mauchly rapidly turned their attention to building UNIVAC. Williams, A History of Computing Technology, 1985. Reproduced typescript, stapled, 8 sheets, including full page illustration. Very fine condition, scarce.
