        Dubonnet. Vin Tonique au Quinquina.

      1950 1950 - Original lithographed poster. Signed A.M. Cassandre [19]32. Printed c. 1950. 66x45 cm. * Adolphe Mouron Cassandre er en af det 20. århundredes største plakatkunstnere. Som uddannet billedkunstner og plakatdesigner var A.M. Cassandre meget bevidst om sin brug af typografi, og hans stil er stram, grafisk og inspireret af kubismen og art deco. Bedst kendt er Cassandres Dubonnet-mand, som er lavet i utallige versioner for vinselskabet Dubonnet. Sammen med Cassandres design af Yves Saint Laurents logo er Dubonnet-plakaterne blevet et ikon inden for branding- og reklamedesign. Nedre margin med bogtrykkermærke bortklippet.Printer brand cut off in lower margin. Cassandre became successful enough that with the help of partners he was able to set up his own advertising agency called Alliance Graphique, serving a wide variety of clients during the 1930s. He is perhaps best known for his posters advertising travel, for clients such as the Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits. His creations for the Dubonnet wine company were among the first posters designed in a manner that allowed them to be seen by occupants in moving vehicles. His posters are memorable for their innovative graphic solutions and their frequent denotations to such painters as Max Ernst and Pablo Picasso. In addition, he taught graphic design at the École des Arts Décoratifs and then at the École d'Art Graphique. [Wikipedia] [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        LOT of 453 "UN MYSTERE" PRESSES DE LA CITE 1949-1965

      PRESSES DE LA CITE 1950's - LOT of 453 UN MYSTERE French Vintage Mystery Paperbacks from PRESSES DE LA CITE issued between 1949 and 1964. The UN MYSTERE ("A MYSTERY") series from PRESSES DE LA CITE represents the best of postwar French-language Vintage Mystery Paperbacks from France. There were 1-769 numbered Mystery titles (NB: numbers 647 & 766 do not exist) issued from 1949 to 1966 along with 9 RARE pre-numbered titles issued between 1947 and 1949 with roman numerals I-IX with each book also issued with a illustrated dust jacket. These 9 were a trial run and, based on their success, the numbered series started in 1949. (NB: None of these I-IX are present in this lot.) The publisher announced on the back cover of some titles that 2 titles a month were initially issued then 4 titles reaching 6 titles a month at its peak. Most titles in this series were translated into French from then contemporary American and British writers, along with some original French writers, notably Jean BRUCE, Jean-Pierre CONTY, and Gilles MORRIS, covering all aspects of the Mystery field from Whodunits, Detective and Hard-boiled to Suspense, Thriller and Espionage. Some of the American and British authors in this specific lot include: EDWARD AARONS, WILLIAM ARD, BILL BALLINGER, BEN BENSON, OWEN CAMERON, JAMES HADLEY CHASE, PETER CHEYNEY, JONATHAN CRAIG, URSULA CURTISS, SPENCER DEAN, CARTER DICKSON, FERGUSON FINDLEY, JOHN FLAGG, RAE FOLEY, ERLE STANLEY GARDNER (also as A.A. FAIR), ANDREW GARVE, WILLIAM CAMPBELL GAULT, HARTLEY HOWARD, WILLIAM IRISH (CORNELL WOOLRICH), ADAM KNIGHT, ED LACY, JOHN ROSS MACDONALD, J.J. MARRIC (JOHN CREASEY), WHIT MASTERSON, ED McBAIN, MARGARET MILLER, WADE MILLER, ELLERY QUEEN, PATRICK QUENTIN, PETER RABE, CRAIG RICE, MICKEY SPILLANE, THOMAS WALSH, LIONEL WHITE along with many others. ERLE STANLEY GARDNER was the most prolific writer in this series with a whopping 111 titles issued, many of these are included in this lot. However, the main attraction for Vintage Paperback collectors is the interesting cover artwork. Some early covers appear to be originals, but the majority are "cover swipes" taken from nearly all the American, and some British, 1950’s and 1960’s paperback publishers including: ACE, AVON, GOLD MEDAL, POCKET BOOKS, POPULAR LIBRARY, etc. These covers were partially redrawn presumably by French artists and, although this artwork is not as slick, many are still recognizable as being taken from other English language Vintage Paperback companies. The first 100 or so titles have some of the most attractive cover artwork and are generally the most difficult to find as First printings especially in better than Good condition. Individual titles appear for sale now and then, but large lots like this one are now simply RARE. This collection represents almost 60% of all titles issued by this publisher and is the result of many years of collecting. One would be hard pressed to find this many together! Five photos show a selection of titles in this lot, additional photos & scans are also available. A complete checklist of all 767 titles published will be provided to the buyer so he can see which titles are present. CONDITION: Early numbers especially those under #100 in this lot are in about Good (some better) condition with some spine creasing and edge wear, some light corner creases, the original sale price of 50¢ penned or stamped on some titles, however many of later higher numbers are generally Very Good (or better) condition. #007200 Price: $4500.00 (This is a heavy set of 453 books and will require additional postage. Please e-mail to confirm availability and correct postage before ordering.) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Six Modern One-Act Plays

      London: University of London Press 1950, 1950. FIRST EDITION, thus. SIGNED BY JOHN LENNON. Octavo, pp.160. Publisher's softcovers. Some soiling and associated reading wear. An interesting school text-book borrowed by Lennon whilst a student at Quarry Bank School, Liverpool. Lennon has signed the lending stamp to the inside cover 'J[ohn] W[inston] Lennon, IVC', and dated this '1955'. The details have been crossed through by the subsequent reader in 1961-2. This signed library book represents an especially early autograph from the future Beatle, at this time aged just 14; 'The Quarrymen' band was formed by John aged 15 and was named after the high school noted within this volume. Music aside, the subject of the book has a clear link to his later career as a dramatist; Lennon co-wrote the play 'A Spaniard In the Works' with Victor Spinetti and starred in the film 'How I Won the War'. An important item, accompanied by a statement of provenence from Paul Wane one of the world's most respected Beatles specialists.

        Error Detecting and Error Correcting Codes. Bell Telephone Systems Technical Publications Monograph 1757

      Bell Telephone Laboratories, New York 1950 - First Separate Edition. 4to., pp. 14; original printed wrappers; ex-library stamp (dated Nov 21, 1950); perforations for ring binder as issued; very good. Small scratch to upper left corner near second hole punch. First separate issue, October 1950. Originally published in the Bell System Technical Journal Vol. 29, pp. 147-160, April 1950. The Bell Telephone System Monograph series was primarily distributed to libraries that subscribed to the series. Stapled wraps. First printed in the April 1950 issue of the Bell System Technical Journal, this Monograph was issued October 1950. Often erroneously referred to as offprints, the Monograph series was not published in most cases contemporaneously with the original publications (this is an exception). The series also included work by Bell System employees that were first published outside the Bell System umbrella. They are, however, usually the first separate publication, and are thus highly prized by collectors since offprints in the traditional sense were not produced in the Bell System as far as we are aware."Hamming was the first coding theorist to attract widespread interest in his work.frustrated when a failure in one of Bell Lab's relay comptuers had spoiled a run of data, Hamming began deveooping the first error-correction codes (now known as Hamming codes), which enabled computers to find and correct single errors in a stretch of data, as well as to discover double errors. Error correction has since been developed into a scientific discipline." (Origins of Cyberspace 646). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Error Detecting and Error Correcting Codes ; Traveling-Wave Tubes ; Memory Requirements in a Telephone Exchange

      New York: Bell Telephone Laboratories, 1950. First Edition. Cloth. Near Fine. First Edition. 675 pages. 8vo. Blue cloth with previous owner name (C. K. Birdsall) printed at base of spine panel and signature on front wrapper of January issue. Bound privately from separate issues, this copy does not have a volume title page. The entire Volume XXIX offered, containing 4 quarterly issues of the Bell System Technical Journal (only the January issue still retains it's original wrappers as often the case). The article by Hamming is found on pp. 147-160 in the April 1950 issue. Sound and clean, noting a taped tear on page 496. Cloth. Volume XXIX contains work by some of Bell Lab's great minds. It contains work by Hamming in coding theory, Pierce on traveling wave tubes, Shannon on Memory sizing, 2 articles by Hartley and Bardeen on Germanium Point Contacts. It also includes articles on the transistor and triode as they were being developed. A few of the highlights follow. "Hamming was the first coding theorist to attract widespread interest in his work...frustrated when a failure in one of Bell Lab's relay comptuers had spoiled a run of data, Hamming began deveooping the first error-correction codes (now known as Hamming codes), which enabled computers to find and correct single errors in a stretch of data, as well as to discover double errors. Error correction has since been developed into a scientific discipline..." (Origins of Cyberspace 646) Pierce's massive four installment article on Traveling-Wave Tubes is found in the January, April, July and October issues. Pierce "invented the electron-multiplier tube and electron gun (the basis of television computer monitors, and other visual display equipment), and was instrumental in developing NASA's first communications satellites" (Origins of Cyberspace 836). Issue 3 in this volume includes Shannon's Memory Requirements in a Telephone Exchange. (Origins of Cyberspace 883). "Charles Kennedy ("Ned") Birdsall, Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, and a pioneering inventor and educator in microwave tubes and plasma physics...Among numerous awards and honors for his contributions, Ned was selected as the inaugural recipient for the IEEE Marie Sklodowska-Curie Award in 2011. This Technical Field Award is one of the highest awards in the IEEE hierarchy, and recognizes outstanding contributions to the field of Nuclear and Plasma Sciences and Engineering. His citation is "for theoretical investigations and fundamental discoveries involving microwave tubes, electron beam physics and particle-in-cell simulation of plasma physics." (EECS Univ Michigan) Also see Lee,"International Biographical Dictionary of Computer Pioneers", 1995, for more information about Bardeen, Hamming, Hartley, Pierce, Shannon and others.

        The Town & the City.

      New York: Harcourt, Brace & Co. 8vo (20.5 cm; 8"). [3] ff., 499, [1] pp.. (1950) First edition of Kerouac's first book. An advance review copy, this distinction being printed on its wrapper; there apparently was no distributed "proof copy" for it. A fictionalized account of the author's life and family and friends, the novel is somewhat conventional but contains the seeds and hints of things that will mature, expand, and dominate in his later writings. Publisher's printed salmon paper wrappers, rear cover with a slim crease to paper (in production?); a fresh, unworn copy. Cryptic pencilled characters (totalling 13) on endpapers and rear endpaper with one very short tear. Housed in a quarter green morocco clamshell box.

        Detection and Generation of Gravitational Waves" in Physical Review 117 No. 1, January 1, 1960, pp. 306-313

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THE INVENTION OF THE FIRST GRAVITATIONAL WAVES DETECTOR. "The detection of gravitational waves is sometimes described as the Holy Grail of Modern Physics" (Blair, Advances Gravitational Wave Detectors, xvi). "The saga of gravitational wave detection goes back a long way: Einstein believed they existed but thought they were not physically detectable. Eddington queried their existence: he suggested that 'they travel at the speed of thought'. But in the 1950's Pirani, Feynman, Bondi and later Isaacson proved their physical reality, and in 1960 Joseph Weber began to develop his famous resonant mass detectors… (Blair, Advances Gravitational Wave Detectors, xvi). Weber's "famous resonant mass detector" "consisted of large vibration-isolated aluminium cylinders constructed with piezoelectric crystals glued on the surface near to the center. These crystals are able to develop a large voltage when they undergo deformation. A low noise amplifier and lock-in amplifier allowed detection of the energy of the fundamental longitudinal resonance of the bar. A gravitational wave applies a time-varying quadrupole deformation and does mechanical work on the fundamental acoustic modes of the test mass. "The absorption cross-section of the mechanical resonator to gravitational waves depends on its mass and sound velocity and is highest at the fundamental resonant frequency. The latter is linked to sound velocity and the resonator's length, since the length must be half an acoustic wavelength at the fundamental longitudinal resonance. Weber chose aluminum because of its high sound velocity, and availability in large pieces, and because it has quite low acoustic losses" (Blair ibid, 61). CONDITION & DETAILS: First edition in original wraps. Lancaster: American Physical Society 117, January 1, 1960. Near fine condition in every way.

        Signed monogrammed handkerchief.

      c.1950. Cotton lawn handkerchief ( c.403 × 403 mm, a 16 inch square) with gilt paper die-cut and embossed "L.A." initials. A little discoloured in places, some spots, creases from old folds, lettering starting to lift, but the signature good and strong, overall very good. Remarkable signed example of Satchmo's ever-present handkerchief. We have been unable to trace another of similar design, but it is absolutely authentic, apparently obtained by an admirer after a concert in the early 50s, and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from James Spence, one of America's leading manuscript and autograph authenticators.

        I, ROBOT.

      New York: Gnome Press, (1950) First printing. Very good in original red cloth with black lettering in a very good dust jacket (some light foxing to the edges of the textblock and the endpapers, offsetting to the endpapers, small white spot near lower corner of front board, corners slightly bumped, spine of dust jacket sunned to gray as is common with this title, minor edgewear and rubbing) Despite the flaws, this is overall a clean, tight and straight copy. Asimov's second book, a collection of nine interlocked stories tracing the development of robots over 75 years. The final story is "The Evitable Conflict" in which the machines that made the world of the 21st century an economic utopia take control of Mankind's future. Asimov's most influential book, this begins with his postulation of the "Three Laws of Robotics." Basis for the film of the same title. 253 pp.
