Pyarelal
Navajivan Publishing House, Ahmedabad, 1950. Frontispiece portrait of Frontier Gandhi and Gandhiji with a further 20 illus. taken from photographs, 216, with two folding, coloured maps. Presentation copy to Ronald Duncan, librettist, disciple and author on Gandhi, from Pyarelal "To Ronald Duncan, with regards, Pyarelal, 3-4-50". Frontier Gandhi was Khan Saheb Abdul Ghaffar Khan, a Pashtun who shared Gandhi's views on non-violence and invited him to the Northwest Frontier in 1939 to tour the region and see his followers, the Khudai Khidmatgar. Seen as subversive by the Pakistan authorities because he did not believe in Partition, he was repeatedly emprisoned. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1987. He died in 1988 and was buried in Jalalabad. Pyarelal Nayyar was Gandhi's personal secretary in his later years-his sister was Gandhi's physician. Mild water staining to dj flaps and eps.Scarce 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

JOUHANDEAU (Marcel).
1950. Une page et demi (135 X 208). "3 Mars 50. Ma Marie, Je reçois quelques photos d'Amérique de Van Vechten. C'est surtout celle de mon Figaro [Figaro était le nom donné par Jouhandeau à l'un de ses chats], que je t'adresse. Il dort en ce moment dans mon dos, fatigué de faire l'amour. Lui, pas mon dos. Je tiens à peu près dans sa vie la place du Seigneur dans celle des dévots. Quand les chattes. Je t'embrasse, Marcel.". Carl VAN VECHTEN (1880-1964), romancier, critique et photographe, s'est particulièrement intéressé à la culture afro-américaine. Son roman "Nigger Heaven" (1926) qui donne une description très crue du Harlem des années 20 fut reçu comme un électrochoc par la communauté noire américaine. Il créa plusieurs prix littéraires qu'il dota lui-même et aida de jeunes écrivains noirs américains comme Langston Hugues et Countee Cullen. Souvent provocateur, Van Vechten n'a jamais dissimulé son homosexualité. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

Handsomely bound with marble endpapers, raised bands, and top edge gilt. With a document providing provenance laid in. Illustrated by Al Hirschfeld. Fine copy. A collection of short travel pieces which appeared in ‘Holiday’ magazine, including ‘Rancors Aweigh,’ ‘Mamma Don’t Want No Rice,’ ‘Pickle-Puss in Seven-League Boots,’ ‘How Much Lotus Can You Eat?,’ etc. Sidney Joseph Perelman, popularly known as S. J. Perelman (1904 – 1979), was one of the most widely read literary icons of the Golden Age of American Humor. His New Yorker pieces, fiction, and collected essays are legendary for their biting wit and mastery of caricature and language. Off and on throughout his career he worked in film, notably as a contributing screenwriter on such Hollywood comedy classics as Monkey Business and Horse Feathers with the Marx Brothers, Mike Todd’s Around the World in 80 Days (for which he won an Oscar), co-creator of the hit Broadway musical comedy One Touch of Venus starring Mary Martin, as well as many publishing (including twenty-one books), radio, television, and travel writing ventures. He was the brother-in-law of the writer Nathanael West with whom he shared a close relationship up until West’s death in a car accident in 1940 at age thirty-seven, and whose memory and literary reputation he devoted himself to maintaining.

Macdonald, [John] Ross
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1950. First Edition. First Edition. Doubly inscribed to legendary genre fiction editor and enthusiast Anthony Boucher. The first inscription, at the front endpaper, reads: "To the Bouchers / with affection / Kenneth Millar / (see Dedication -->)." The second inscription is at the Dedication page, which reads TO TONY, and very cleverly makes use of both Millar's real name and pseudonym, as well as Boucher's: "For Tony and Bill, / Those remarkable men, / This grist from the mill / of Johnny and Ken." Near Fine in a bright, Near Fine dust jacket. Boucher was a legendary figure in the mystery and science fiction world, and is considered to be one of the great proponents of genre fiction as a literary form. The worldwide mystery conference Bouchercon is named for him. A key Macdonald title and the second Lew Archer novel, basis for the 1975 film, the second of two Lew Archer adaptations featuring Paul Newman in the lead role (renamed as "Harper"). A unique and important copy.

BAILEY, Percival (1892-1973); Gerhardt von BONIN (d. 1979) & Warren S. [Sturgis] McCULLOCH (1899-1969):
Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1950. - First Edition. Frontispiece, xvi, 440 pp; 293 figs.; 40 plates. Original cloth, 4to. Very Good+. This book was at the center of a recent controversy between a group led by Chet C. Sherwood of Kent State and another at the University of Pennsylvania led by P. Thomas Schoenemann. In Nat. Neuroscience 8 (2005), pp. 242-52, Schoenemann, et al. 'claim that the prefrontal white matter of humans is enlarged compared to that of other primates' (Sherwood, et al., 'Is prefrontal white matter enlargement a human evolutionary specialization?', Nat. Neurosci. 8, No. 5, May 2005, p. 537). Sherwood, et al. disagree in part because Schoenemann, et al. 'did not refer to existing cytoarchitectural maps of great apes, which suggest that their prefrontal measurement underestimates [non-human primate] species as well' (p. 537), and here they give a reference to the map that is the frontispiece of Bailey, et al. (1950). But in Schoenemann, et al.'s 'Reply' (538), they write, 'Sherwood et al. find the prefrontal volume proxy we used problematic, even though it has been widely used in the neuropsychological literature for many years . Sherwood, et al. believe this proxy specifically underestimates the size of ape values, yet the frontispiece of one of the sources they cite [Bailey, et. al. 1950, offered here] clearly shows any underestimation is minor compared to that found in humans. Taking refs. 7 [Bailey, et al. 1950] and 8 [Brodmann 1912] together, we see that the degree of underestimation using this method increases as one gets closer to humans.

Marcus Behmer (1. Oktober 1879 Weimar bis 12. September 1958 Berlin
1950 - blattgröße 15,8 mal 16,2 cm, handsigniert und gewidmet "für werner zum 17", papier leicht gebräunt, auf papierunterlage montiert, Wikipedia: "Behmer war ein Sohn des Kunstmalers Hermann Behmer und Enkel des Merziener Oberamtmanns Friedrich Behmer und dessen Ehefrau Elise Behmer, jüngste Tochter der Dichterin Philippine Engelhard. Sein Onkel Rudolf Behmer (* 13. November 1831 in Merzien; † 12. Februar 1902 in Berlin) − bekannt geworden als Züchter des Merinofleischschafes − war der Zwillingsbruder seines Vaters. Deren Schwester Luise, die Tante von Marcus, war mit Heinrich von Nathusius (1824–1890) verheiratet. Sein Bruder Joachim Behmer war ebenfalls künstlerisch tätig.Seine künstlerischen Anfänge waren, wie er in einem Brief schreibt, 1896, der erste große Erfolg die Ausgabe des Insel-Verlags von Wildes Salome. Seine frühen Arbeiten zeugen vom Einfluss der Illustrationskunst Aubrey Beardsleys. In der historischen Rezeption wird ihm diese, in seiner Salome Ausgabe Insel-Verlages manifestierten Ausrichtung, zum Verhängnis. Viele kunsthistorische Werke bezeichnen Behmer völlig unzutreffend als Beardsley-Epigonen. Denn schon bald löste er sich vom Jugendstil und entwickelte parallel zum aufkommenden Expressionismus und den neuen Impulsen der Wiener Werkstätten eine unverwechselbare Formensprache. Ab 1914 Teilnahme am Ersten Weltkrieg (Flandern und Polen). Im Sommer 1917 erkrankte er „nach einer Operation im Felde“ schwer und lag im Kriegslazarett von Jarny. Während seiner Zeit in der Armee entstanden viele, sogenannte „Kameradenportraits“, … [Click Below for Full Description]

With over a hundred pages of extremely rare related material. s computer use began to grow throughout the 1950's, there was rapidly developing a need for a programming language that was not computer-specific.

Representatives from users, Government installations, computer manufacturers and other interested parties were present. There was almost unanimous agreement that the project was both desirable and feasible at this time. The concept of three committees or task forces was agreed upon... The Committee held meetings between September 18 and November 7, 1959, and proceeded steadily in its task of resolving problems and completing the language. The name 'COBOL', which suggests a COmmon Business Oriented Language, was adopted... Final editing and initial distribution of the report to the Executive Committee was accomplished December 17, 1959."The COBOL report is contained in a three-ring binder with Remington Rand UNIVAC labels on front and spine that includes a massive amount of material presumably distributed to individuals … [Click Below for Full Description]
