        [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's degree in fine arts as well as a master'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. .

Der schlafmützige Hiasl steigt zum Fenster herein, und vermutet im Dunkeln Kathi im Bett, offenbar bereit. Es folgt eine wilde Vögelei und Gretchens Entjungferung: "Mir kummt's! Mir kummt's! Oh Katherl, duuu!! Sie spürt, er macht in ihr Lulu". Realistisch und charmant ländlich gezeichnet. Es könnte sich bei der Bildergeschichte um die Vorlage zu einem Buch handeln.

        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.

        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).
