        Across the River and Into the Trees (Inscribed First Edition)

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1950. First American edition. about Fine/Near Fine. Inscribed by the author on the front end paper: "To Maria Altagracia | best always from her friend | Ernest Hemingway May 1957." A personal inscription from Hemingway a few years after winning the Nobel Prize for literature and a few years before taking his own life. Inscriptions during this stage of his life are relatively uncommon. And, unfortunately a word of caution, because forged Hemingway signatures are known to pop up on this book, so buy from a trusted dealer. Besides our own expertise, this copy has passed muster with several major auction houses, including Sotheby's, Dec. 13, 2011 est. $6 - 8,000. & & The book is clean and bright with a touch of wear at the spine ends, but just about Fine. In a Near Fine first state dust jacket also with minor wear at the extremities and a pinpoint hole on the front end-paper. A wonderful copy of one of Hemingway's lesser works about an old soldier's nostalgic reminiscences on the past. You can hear the somewhat disappointed, somewhat tired voice of a man who believes his best years are behind him, fiercely clutching at the man he believes he used to be.& & Housed in one of those awful clamshell cases with gaudy spine lettering and embossed design on the front board. We will let the new owner have the pleasure of running it over with the car and then tossing it in the garbage. about Fine in Near Fine. dust jacket.

        What's the water like? Looks pretty cold!

      c. 1950. Sheet size: 255 × 327 mm. Pen and ink on wove paper. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

In the Foreword Steinbeck writes his reasons for writing in this format - play-novellette: "I find it difficult to read plays, and in this I do not find myself alone. The printed play is read almost exclusively by people closely associated with the theater, by students of the theater, and by the comparatively small group of readers who are passionately fond of the theater. ....[this] will be more widely read because it is presented as ordinary fiction...

        Computing MacHinery and Intelligence

      Edinburgh: Thomas Nelson & Sons, 1950. First Edition. Wrappers. Fine. [2], 433-576 pages. Original grey printed wrappers. As bright a copy as we've seen, untrimmed with yapp edges (grey wrappers overlap the textblock on 3 sides) as issued. 'With the advent of the electric digital computer came much speculation as to whether or not in processing information these machines were actually thinking. In this paper Turing considered this question from a behavioristic standpoint, proposing an experiment, later call the Turing Test, that would allow the unbiased comparison of a machine's thinking behavior with that of a normal human being. The test involves two parties, 'X' and 'Y', who engage in a conversation by teletype. Human X cannot know whether Y is a machine or a person. If X believes that Y is responding like a person after a specified period of time, and Y turns out to be a machine, then that machine may be defined as having the capacity to 'think.'' (Origins of Cyberspace 936) Turing thought that by the year 2000 machines would be able to think like humans. Today, the defining line is getting very thin, with computers able to learn given diverse and continuing inputs, and able to interact with the world around them increasing as humans do. An important piece in any artificial intelligence or history of computing collection.

        ?Two Person Cooperative Games" (Econometrica 21, January 1953), pp. 128-141

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PAPER WRAPS of John Nash?s fourth and final paper seminal contribution to non-cooperative game theory. In his 1950 paper on the subject, ?Nash presented a bargaining solution that was completely unanticipated in the literature. Breaking with the past, he used a simple yet path-breaking axiomatic approach and a non-cooperative model of games to derive a bargaining solution between two rational persons. This axiomatic approach aimed to identify the common characteristics of bargaining and its solutions rather than describe the processes involved in bargaining? (Berckert, International Encyclopedia of Economic Sociology, 22).This 1953 paper by Nash set a new entire research agenda that has been referred to as the Nash Program for cooperative games. In the Nash Program, ?although players MAY enter into a binding agreement, they need not. If they choose not to, then there is a non-cooperative game in which each player can, adopting the appropriate mixed strategy, be assured of a certain minimum expected payoff; call this outcome the ?disagreement point.? The original cooperative game can thus be conceived as a bargaining problem in which players seek to improve their situation by moving away from the disagreement point to a new, more desirable point conferring greater utility. Exactly which point is selected depends upon the particular arbitration scheme used. An arbitration scheme can be thought of as a function mapping the set of possible outcomes to a single outcome: the solution offered by the arbitrator.A cooperative game, then, can be conceived as an extensive form of a non-cooperative game where the early stages of the game involve the selection of the disagreement point and the arbitration scheme. This approach, of reducing cooperative games to non-cooperative games, is known as the ?Nash Program? (The Philosophy of Science: An Encyclopedia, Volume 1, 328). In 1994 Nash shared the Nobel Prize in Economics with Reinhard Selten and John Harsanyi "for their pioneering analysis of equilibria in the theory of non-cooperative games? (Nobel Prize Committee). NOTE: This issue also contains English translations of Emile Borel?s three papers on game theory.CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to. 10 X 7 inches (250 x 175mm).

      New York: William Morrow, 1950. Gardner, Erle Stanley. THE CASE OF THE ONE-EYED WITNESS. New York: William Morrow, (1950). First Edition. A FINE bright copy (one small pinhole scuff to front board) in a NEAR FINE priced dust jacket (trifling edge wear, tiny bit a staining to the top edge which just barely affects the inside flaps).

Underneath this he has written his full name: "Erle Stanley Gardner/ Oct 1950." Not much is known of the recipient as yet, other than she did write a story for Argosy Magazine in the late 1940s that appeared in the same issue as one of Gardner's. Erle Stanley Gardner occasionally signed copies of his books for friends and people he worked with but rarely did he inscribe a book so intimately. See our other copies from the same primary source by using key words Tee Rose.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Fine/Near Fine.

        Transparent Traitor

      London - Macdonald and Co, 1950 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce first edition of this crime novel by Francis Gerard. 'Sir Digby Vane-Torrington, the great actor-manager, had made too many enemies for the good of any one man. He had a bad reputation with women, and he detested his own sons. When after his retirement he decided to give a private performance of Romeo and Juliet, he invited all the London critics and numerous other notabilities, including Sir John Meredith. It was a sensational evening, from the rise of the curtain to the shot which followed its fall. This is one of Francis Gerard's most unusual tales, for the issue is not so much one of 'who did the murder' as 'why and how did the victim come to fill his role' It is top-grade story-telling from beginning to end'. Cover design by Stein. Condition: In a cloth covered binding. Externally, smart and bright with very slight fading at head and tail of spine. Dustwrapper is generally clean with slight curling. A number of small closed tears have been repaired with tape on the reverse, and the dustwrapper is protected with Brodart wraps. Internally, firmly bound, bright and generally clean. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED with a VERY GOOD dustwrapper.
