        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.

The invention of the transistor was first announced in three short letters by Bardeen, Brattain, Shockley, and Pearson, in The Physical Review (July 1948). The following year Bardeen and Brattain published the more comprehensive report 'Physical Principles Involved in Transistor Action'. This paper was simultaneously published, the same month, in The Physical Review [as offered here] and Bell System Technical Journal [no priority established]. 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.

        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. A UNIQUE AND FASCINATING LITTLE ARCHIVE, REVEALING THE DEVELOPMENT OF WILL BRADLEY'S AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH, AND HIS RELUCTANCE TO REVEAL HIS EMOTIONS IN IT.

        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.

        Le Paradoxe d'Aytré, manuscrit original et tapuscrit

      S.n.. 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.

        The Arab of the Desert. A Glimpse into Badawin Life in Kuwait and Sau'di Arabia.

      London: George Allen and Unwin 1949. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED by the author. Octavo, pp.648, with errata slip on p.19. Original pale orange cloth with gilt titles to spine against a red shield, top edge tinted orange. With portrait frontispiece, 9 coloured plates, 46 black and white plates on 43 pages, 78 diagrams and illustrations in text, 9 folding maps on 7 sheets, and 6 folding pedigrees housed in a wide band over rear pastedown. Some fraying to joints at head and tail. With presentation inscription to first blank; Commander B.H. Dunn, RN / HMS Mauritius / (underlined) / With every good wish from / H.R.P. Dickson / (underline) / Kuwait 25 June 1951. The recipient's dated initials appear on the pastedown and several associated newsclippings are loosely inserted. Lt-Col H.R.P. Dickson was a respected British colonial administrator and political agent in the Middle East. After retiring from service he represented the Kuwait Oil Company. An accepted member of the Anizzah tribe, he had a detailed knowledge of Bedouin tradition which he described in both this book and Kuwait and her Neighbours (1956). The present copy has a significant association; HMS Mauritius was a Royal Navy Cruiser involved in battle service at Anzio and Normandy, and numerous other wartime defence deployments. In 1950 she served as as Flagship in the East Indies and took part in operations in the Persian Gulf during the Abadan Crisis, where the British fleet blockaded the port in order to protect the Anglo-Iranian oil industry. This book was inscribed to Cmdr Dunn, almost certainly aboard the warship, at the height of the international unrest. In July 1952 the Royal Navy intercepted an Italian tanker leaving Abadan, escorted her to British Aden and reclaimed the ship's Petroleum cargo. This action set a precedent and effectively quashed other such export attempts.
