        ?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). Single issue in original wraps in fine condition.

        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.

        Louisa (Original screenplay for the 1950 film)

      Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1950. Clothbound presentation copy of the Revised Final Screenplay (along with many other working materials) for the 1950 film, "Louisa," belonging to script supervisor Dorothy Hughes. Directed by Alexander Hall, written for the screen by Stanley Roberts, and starring Ronald Reagan, Charles Coburn, Edmund Gwenn, Piper Laurie, Spring Byington, and Martin Milner. & & Allmovie Guide: "Spring plays Reagan's widowed mother, who is outwardly satisfied with her lot but inwardly lonely. Enter Coburn and Gwenn, who vie for Spring's attentions. Uptight Ronnie disapproves of his mother's dalliances, and has additional problems with his spunky daughter (Piper Laurie), who has just begun dating. Spring Byington and Charles Coburn worked so well together in 'Louisa' that plans were made to star them in a weekly television series. The project never sold, but Spring would star in a similar sitcom, 'December Bride,' from 1954 through 1959." Included here are the shooting script, shooting schedule, actor profiles (with multiple black-and-white Polaroid shots of each of the principals, in costume, affixed to each page), cast list with contact information, a list of department heads, and the continuity breakdown. Every page of the shooting script is profusely annotated with the script supervisor's markings, with tabs affixed at the fore-edge to indicate the various sections of the film. & & Green cloth, with the film's original title and Dorothy Hughes' name both in gilt on the front board and spine. Title page present, with a holograph notation of "1950" and credits for Roberts as the screenwriter. 130 pages, white pages with a few blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 1/30/1950 and 2/30/1950. Pages Very Good or better, cloth binding Very Good plus. Nominated for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award. A deluxe working script, from the estate of Dorothy Hughes (not to be confused with the crime author) and her daughter Winnie Ray, both of whom worked for the Hollywood studios for over 40 years.
