        The Saviours and Liberators

      [Edinburgh, 1950]. First Edition. Issued in an exceedingly small print run (a total of seventeen copies were distributed according to the list of recipients bound at the beginning of the text, among them Winston Churchill and King George VI), Saviours and Liberators is the author's firsthand account, edited with the aid of Bertrand Russell, of Bolshevik atrocities committed against Poland before and during World War II. The text and illustrations were apparently hand-assembled, with both a leaf of errata as well as dozens of typescript cancels throughout. Though the author would be the victim of both the Nazis and the Soviet Union, he argues that the motivation to write an exposé almost exclusively of Soviet war crimes is motivated by the Nuremberg trials, which had already brought to light Nazi crimes, while "no case has, as yet, been brought forward against the innumerable crimes committed by the barbarous Bolsheviks on the Polish nation and other nations, as well as on their own citizens" (from the introduciton, p. iii). Stanko-Dziewulski, originally a citizen of the Polish city of Lviv, was arrested by the N.K.V.D. shortly after the Soviet invasion in September, 1940, under charges of espionage. The author writes in detail of his experiences in the Soviet prisons and work camps, illustrated chiefly with photographs of skeletal Polish children and mass graves of Polish soldiers dead of typhus. A highly polemical account of the Polish experience during World War II, apparently never commercially published. We find two copies located in OCLC as of August, 2017, at CSU - East Bay and Georgetown. Oblong octavo (16.25x20.25cm.); publisher's blue cloth tape-backed stiff card printed wrappers; [4],v,[3],iv,262pp.; illustrated plate mounted to title page, 18 mounted photographs, typescript captions also mounted; text printed mimeograph. Light wear and toning to wrapper extremities, else Just About Fine.

        Probability and the Weighing of Evidence.

      London: Charles Griffin, 1950. - First Edition. 119 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. Good 'was a cryptologist, statistician and early worker on Colossus at Bletchley Park and the University of Manchester. This book expanded on the concept of Alan Turing's Unit 'deciban' which measured the smallest weight of evidence perceptible to the intuition. Rare' (Dominic Winter Auctions Web site). A copy of this book sold at Winter on Dec. 12, 2007 for 620 pounds. '[M]y book . . . which was completed in 1948, had been declined by the Cambridge University Press. Who the referee was, I don't know, but it could have been Jeffreys, since Frank Smithies told me he saw the manuscript on Jeffreys' desk. I was discouraged and did nothing about the manuscript for several months at least. Then Donald Michie, a good friend of mine right from the Newmanry days, said 'Why don't you send it in somewhere and let someone else do the work if you're not working on it?' I said 'Look, the manuscript's in Manchester and I'm in London.' He replied 'Take a train to Manchester and come back the same day on another train.' I didn't have enough faith in myself without his moral support, and I did what he advised and submitted the manuscript to Charles Griffin, who published it in 1950. (Most publication was slow at the time.) I think it wasn't such a bad little book. Somebody phoned me recently and called it a classic. (Perhaps judgments should be made by oracles. Marc Kac's naughty philosophy of refereeing was to accept everything and 'let history decide.') . . . I knew Fisher, but not well, and generally was on pretty good terms with him. He once told me that the best thing he could do for genetics was to teach it to mathematicians. He also said that he found my 1950 book interesting' (David L. Banks, 'A Conversation with I. J. Good', Statistical Science, 1996, Vol. 11, No. 1, 1-19). Good put a 'good-natured' CV on his Virginia Tech Web page, where he writes, 'Foreign Office, 1941-45. Worked at Bletchley Park on Ultra (both the Enigma and a Teleprinter encrypting machine the Schlüsselzusatz SZ40 and 42 which we called Tunny or Fish) as the main statistician under A. M. Turing, F. R. S., C. H. O. D. Alexander (British Chess Champion twice), and M. H. A. Newman, F. R. S., in turn. (All three were friendly bosses.)' Reviewed by Jimmie Savage for Journal of the American Statistical Association, Vol. 46, No. 255 (Sept., 1951), pp. 383-384, and by P. A. M. for Journal of the Royal Statistical Society. Series A (General), Vol. 113, No. 2 (1950), p. 250. 'Bayes Factor appears in I. J. Good's 1958 'Significance Tests in Parallel and in Series,' Journal of the American Statistical Association, 53, 799-813. Previously in his Probability and the Weighing of Evidence (1950) Good had used the term 'factor' explaining that 'Dr. A. M. Turing suggested in a conversation in 1940 that the word 'factor' should be regarded as a technical term . . . and that it could be more fully described as the factor in favour of the hypothesis H in virtue of the result of the experiment.' Jeffreys had introduced this factor, denoting it by K but not giving it a name (Theory of Probability (1939, chapter V.)' (Earliest Known Uses of Some of the Words of Mathematics (B)' Web page on AOL). Good has been called the 'Overlooked Father of Computation' (Hook & Norman, Origins of Cyberspace 635, which is Good's 'Speculations Concerning the First Ultraintelligent Machine', in Alt & Rubinoff, eds., Advances in Computers, vol. 6, pp. 31-88, 1965). 'Arthur C. Clarke used Good's name in 1968, along with that of Marvin Minsky, to explain the thinking capabilities of HAL 9000' (OOS). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; Prince Caspian; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; The Silver Chair; The Horse and His Boy; The Magician's Nephew; The Last Battle. 7 volumes, octavo.

With colour frontispieces and black and white illustrations by Pauline Baynes. The occasional minor blemish otherwise an excellent set. First editions, first impressions throughout this complete set of the beloved Narnia series. 'The immediate inspiration for "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" was a series of nightmares that Lewis had had about Lions. More seriously, he was concerned to do for children what he had done for an adult readership in his science fiction trilogy... The Narnia novels are not allegorical; they are entirely in keeping with the belief, shared by Lewis and his close friend and Oxford colleague Tolkien, that stories in themselves, especially of the mythical type, can give spiritual nourishment without imparting abstract meaning... As Naomi Lewis has written, the books are 'intoxicating' to all but the most relentlessly unimaginative readers, and must be judged the most sustained achievement in fantasy for children by a 20th century author'.

        Primer on Alcoholism: How People Drink, How to Recognize Alcoholics, and What to Do About Them

      Rinehart & Co.. Hardcover. New York, 1950. 8vo, red cloth, 216 pp. The scarce first edition of Mann's important work on alcoholism. n 1945 Mann became inspired with the desire to eliminate the stigma and ignorance regarding alcoholism, and to encourage the "disease model" which viewed it as a medical/psychological problem, not a moral failing. She helped start the Yale School of Alcohol Studies (now at Rutgers), and organized the National Committee for Education on Alcoholism (NCEA), now the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence or NCADD. First editions of Primer on Alcoholism are extremely rare. This copy is in very good condition. Contemporary pencil notes from an A.A. member on front free endpaper and some faint pencil marks in text, which we have chosen to leave since they represent an early engagement with Mann's work. Otherwise excellent with light normal wear. Please contact us for additional pictures or information. . Very Good. 1950. First Edition.

        Patria Mia

      Ralph Fletcher Seymour, Chicago 1950 - First edition. Boards a little splayed else near fine in a slightly spine-faded and rubbed, very good or better dustwrapper with some foxing at the flap folds, and the front flap professionally reinforced on the verso. Inscribed by Pound to Howard Gill, during the time that Pound was confined to St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, DC after World War II, with Pound's usual scrawl taking up most of the front fly, and with a slightly cryptic inscription: "Howard Gill from Ezra Pound. Remembering Piranesi." Essays on the future of art in America. Originally published serially in a London periodical in 1911, and intended to be published as a book in the U.S. The manuscript was revised by Pound in 1913 but thought lost until it resurfaced in 1950. Gill was a noted criminologist often accused of leniency towards his prisoners. He was the general administrator of the District of Columbia's prison system, and briefly had responsibility over Pound when he was transferred there, before his incarceration at St. Elizabeth's. Some evidence exists in Gill's papers that he was helpful in obtaining books for Pound while he was confined. Perhaps the reference to Piranesi, the great Italian architect, refers to such a book. Patria Mia was published by a small publisher while Pound was incarcerated and because of those circumstances, this is a title that is rarely found Inscribed by Pound. Gallup A63.

        Patria Mia

      Chicago: Ralph Fletcher Seymour, 1950. Near Fine/Very Good. First edition. Boards a little splayed else near fine in a slightly spine-faded and rubbed, very good or better dustwrapper with some foxing at the flap folds, and the front flap professionally reinforced on the verso. Inscribed by Pound to Howard Gill, during the time that Pound was confined to St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, DC after World War II, with Pound's usual scrawl taking up most of the front fly, and with a slightly cryptic inscription: "Howard Gill from Ezra Pound. Remembering Piranesi." Essays on the future of art in America. Originally published serially in a London periodical in 1911, and intended to be published as a book in the U.S. The manuscript was revised by Pound in 1913 but thought lost until it resurfaced in 1950. Gill was a noted criminologist often accused of leniency towards his prisoners. He was the general administrator of the District of Columbia's prison system, and briefly had responsibility over Pound when he was transferred there, before his incarceration at St. Elizabeth's. Some evidence exists in Gill's papers that he was helpful in obtaining books for Pound while he was confined. Perhaps the reference to Piranesi, the great Italian architect, refers to such a book. Patria Mia was published by a small publisher while Pound was incarcerated and because of those circumstances, this is a title that is rarely found Inscribed by Pound. Gallup A63.
