        Functional Operators. Volume I: Measures and Integrals. Volume II: The Geometry of Orthogonal Spaces

      Princeton: Princeton University Press. 1950. First. First editions. Two volumes. Tall octavos. 261; 107pp. Original printed orange wrappers. Some sunning at the edges of the wrappers, and some faint spotting and dampstains at the spines, a very good, uniform set. Arthur S. Wightman's copies with his ownership Signature ("A.S. Wightman") on the front cover of each volume (one dated in 1951). Von Neumann was a pioneer of the application of operator theory to quantum mechanics, in the development of functional analysis, and a principal member of the Manhattan Project and the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. Wightman was one of the founders of the axiomatic approach to quantum field theory, and originated the set of Wightman axioms. His work, including such titles as PCT, Spin and Statistics and All That, frequently cites the work of von Neumann. Although we wouldn't claim to understand the writings of either mathematician, we know an excellent association when we see one. .

        Report on the preparation of programmes for the EDSAC and the use of the library of subroutines

      1950. <p> Prepublication Ditto&#39;d Version of the First Book on Software--Of Exceptional Rarity</p><p>Wilkes, Maurice et al. Report on the preparation of programmes for the EDSAC and the use of the library of subroutines. N.p., 1950. Dittoed document in two colors. Original tan printed wrappers, cloth spine. <b>Signed by Wilkes on the front wrapper.</b> Boxed. [3], 40 [2], 26, 39, xi ff. Laid in are a single dittoed errata sheet and a two-sheet dittoed and stapled document titled "University Mathematical Laboratory, Cambridge. Applications of the EDSAC, to 1st September 1950," describing supplementary material. 323 x 201 mm. Provenance: Andrew D. Booth. Occasional insignificant spotting, but fine. </p> <p>First edition, of exceptional rarity. This was the first report on how to program an operational stored-program computer. It was prepared by Wilkes and a fifteen-man team of researchers at Cambridge&#39;s University Mathematical Laboratory, and distributed to no more than one hundred people--"everyone we thought would be interested, both in the United Kingdom and abroad" (Wilkes 1985, 149). The material in this dittoed report was published as a conventional textbook, with very few changes, in Wilkes, Wheeler, and Gill&#39;s Preparation of Programs for an Electronic Digital Computer (1951). When we last checked OCLC noted only the Harvard Library Copy. Origins of Cyberspace 1027.

        Report of a conference on high speed automatic calculating-machines. Signed by Wilkes

      Cambridge: Univ. Mathematical Lab., 1950. <p>[Wilkes, Maurice V.] Conference on high speed automatic calculating-machines. Report of a conference on high speed calculating-machines, 22-25 June 1949. Cambridge: University Mathematical Laboratory, January 1950. Original tan printed wrappers, stapled. <b>Signed by Maurice V. Wilkes on the title-leaf. </b>[6], 141pp., irregularly numbered. 33 inserted illustrations / diagrams. 327 x 200 mm. Provenance: Andrew D. Booth. </p> <p>First edition. The report of the first computer conference held in England. Its main significance was that it was the first computer conference in which a stored-program computer actually operated. <p><p>The conference was organized by Wilkes. Twenty-eight papers were presented at the conference, including Couffignal&#39;s "La machine de l&#39;Institut Blaise Pascal," M. H. A. Newman&#39;s "Some routines involving large integers," and Alan Turing&#39;s "Checking a large routine". The texts of most of the papers, as well as of the discussions that followed, are reproduced in the report. The conference was attended by about one hundred people, whose names are listed on pages 1-4. A bibliography of over one hundred works on computers appears on pages 134-41 (see Randell 1982a, 541). This bibliography was relatively complete for the sparse literature available at the time.</p><p>The EDSAC, which had become fully operational just a few weeks previously, was the star of the Cambridge conference. Immediately after the opening address (delivered by Douglas R. Hartree), Wilkes presented a paper on the EDSAC written by himself and his colleague William Renwick (pp. 9-11), which was followed by a demonstration of the machine (pp. 12-16): </p><p> "For the demonstration two short programs were run: the first, written by Wilkes, printed a table of squares; the second, written by David Wheeler, printed out prime numbers. David Wheeler . . . also gave a paper later in the conference on organising the program library for EDSAC [pp. 36-40]; this paper is interesting because it shows an early stage in the evolution of the EDSAC programming system that was later to be described in the classic textbook <i>The Preparation of Programs for an Electronic Digital Computer</i>" (Williams and Campbell-Kelly 1989, xiii).</p> & <p>When we checked, OCLC cited three copies of this rare report. </p>

        29 autogr. messages and one autograph letter signed ("Dix"), two of which have hand drawings.

      N. p., [c. 1950]. - Various formats. Highly perfunctory letter, probably to the violinist Hanni Rocco (1896-1990), whom Dix had met in the 1940s in the Höri artists' colony and who had lived in Hemmenhofen with her friend Maria Proells until 1953. Dix informs her that she can obtain his work from the Klihm Gallery and requests her not to bother him with trifling matters, in view of his laziness and copious correspondence. - The messages, most of them rather short, are probably to Roccos companion, the pianist and painter Maria Proelss (1892-1962), and concern forthcoming visits, various requests, etc. (with occasional references to "Miss Rocco"). Some of these are written on clipped slips of paper (including 3 military letters and 2 fragments of cigarette boxes); one postcard bears the drawing of a little girl with a flower.

        Portrait

      - A 19" x 25" portrait by Plath of her high school classmate and friend Arden Tapley, executed in pastels. Undated, but probably from 1950, the year both of them graduated from Wellesley High School. Arden is wearing her hair in the same style as her graduation photograph and may be wearing the same shirt. Plath's mastery of the craft of portraiture is limited: her anatomy is far from perfect, but her intent to capture the essence of her subject is boldly realized not only in the outer depiction of her hairstyle and nondescript clothing, but more importantly in the intensity of the gaze captured by the artist. The portrait would be remarkable if it contained only her eyes, which look askance with a combination of intensity and vulnerability that seems to perfectly embody the artist herself, perhaps as much as her friend. Arden Tapley's daughter recalled that her mother often spoke of her high school friendship with Sylvia, and that both were rather "shy, sensitive girls who naturally gravitated toward each other." She said that when she first saw the image she immediately recognized it as her mother, and in that sense Plath did capture an essence of her young friend. We have never seen such an artwork by Plath offered on the market; her sketch of Ted Hughes that was done seven years later and recently sold for $49,000 was a considerably less "finished" work, albeit one that showed a more mature command of style and representation. All of Plath's significant works have long been institutionalized. Once creased near the lower edge, apparently to display the image without showing the hands; small red stamp lower left corner; else fine. Matted and framed to 23-1/4" x 30". A powerful image of a close friend by the noted writer while she was still a high school student.

        [Oil Painting]: Fishes

      Oil painting on laminated panel. Approximately 26 x 20.5cm. (10" x 8"). Unframed. Signed in the lower left. Slight rubbing at the edges of the boards, near fine. Old (circa 1950?) label on back from Mortimer Levitt Gallery in Manhattan stating price at $75 (later lower to $65). Partly representational, partly abstract depiction of a school of fish rendered in a heavy impasto style. According to the website of Riverside Community College, which holds her papers: "Mine Okubo was born in Riverside, California, on June 27, 1912, to immigrant Japanese parents. She attended Riverside Junior College, (now Riverside City College), and subsequently obtained a bachelor&#39;s degree in fine arts as well as a master&#39;s degree from the University of California, Berkeley. She won a fellowship in 1938 to study art in Europe, and returned to the United States just before the outbreak of World War II. She was employed doing public art projects through the federal WPA in the San Francisco area, and worked with Mexican muralist Diego Rivera for the Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay. She was working on a mural when war with Japan was declared. She and her brother were incarcerated briefly at Tanforan Relocation Camp and subsequently transferred to the Central Utah Relocation Camp in Topaz, Utah. While in the camp, Mine Okubo taught art and did numerous pen and ink drawings depicting life in the relocation center, which later provided the material for Citizen 13660. She entered a magazine contest with a drawing of a camp guard, and Fortune magazine, recognizing her talent, offered her a job in New York that led to her release from the camp. With some help, she found an apartment in Greenwich Village where she would live for the next 50 years, vigorously participating in the New York art scene and creating works of art that were exhibited from Boston to Tokyo. Her book, Citizen 13660, published in 1946, was the first account of the wartime Japanese American relocation and confinement experience, and is regarded as a landmark work." Okubo died in 2001 at age 88. .

        [Typescript]: The Rose Tattoo (A Play in Three Parts)

      September 1950. Carbon typescript. Quarto. 77pp. Sheets bradbound in the blue "Liebling-Wood" folder of Williams&#39;s agent, Audrey Wood. The light blue wrappers a bit worn with tears at the foredge and spine ends, and missing one of the original brads, very good plus. Labeled "Third draft, Europe, September, 1950" on the first sheet along with a red pencil notation that reads, "1st Typing" on the first page, as well as two minor corrections in the Introduction. This copy also includes the epigraph from the poem Anabasis on the first sheet that was used intermittently by Williams throughout his many draft.The Rose Tattoo is Williams&#39;s first full-length comedy which he called his "love-play to the world." It concerns a Sicilian widow from the Gulf Coast and her attempts to protect her attractive young daughter while dealing with her own renewed passions. This draft was completed after learning that Elia Kazan had passed on directing the play to do a film with Arthur Miller, a snub that greatly disheartened Williams. Nevertheless, the play, which debuted on Broadway in early 1951, won the Tony Awards for best play as well as best actor and best actress awards for Eli Wallach and Maureen Stapleton. A 1955 film version was also a success, starring Burt Lancaster and Anna Magnani, who was won the Oscar for best actress. .
