Broch, Hermann, Schriftsteller (1886-1951)
Princeton, NJ & New Haven, CT, 1946. Zusammen 9 SS. auf 8 Bll. Verschiedene Formate. Zwei Karten mit eh. Adresse. Mit 5 ms. adr. Kuverts. An den ebenso wie Broch emigrierten Musikwissenschaftler Viktor Zuckerkandl (1896-1965): "[...] Mir sind zwei Romane aus heiterer Hölle in den Schoss gefallen - einer ist gottlob fertig -, und dadurch ist wieder alles andere, was mir wichtiger erscheint (Erkenntnistheorie und Politik) in den Hintergrund geraten. Und ansonsten erscheint mir in dieser Welt alles unwichtig und prekär. Man kann nicht mehr für die Ewigkeit arbeiten, da sie hinter einem liegt. Und da ich blöd genug bin, mich davon über Gebühr bedrücken zu lassen, geht es mir auch körperlich ein bisschen unglänzend. Meine Müdigkeiten sind etwas abnormal und werden mit Vitamins, Hormonen, Eisen, Kalkpräparaten bekämpft, manchmal nicht erfolglos [...]" (29. XI. 1950). Weiters finden sich in Brochs Schreiben ausführliche Gedanken über die Geisteswissenschaften und verschiedene Romane. - Ein undatiertes Schreiben auf Transparentpapier (Durchschlag) mit dem ms. Text von Brochs Gutachten über Zuckerkandls aktuelles Forschungsprojekt und sechszeiliger paraphierter Grußnote an Zuckerkandl: "Liebster, hoffentlich sind Sie mit Nachstehendem einverstanden. MS folgt, wenn möglich (auch wenn's den Autor - üblicherweise - erbittert) mit meinen Kommentar-Bemerkungen [...]".

TURING, ALAN
New York: Thomas Nelson & Sons, Ltd, 1950. First edition. Original wrappers; custom box. Very Good. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Alan Turing's landmark explanation of what would become known as the "Turing test" to determine whether a machine can 'think'. In "Computing Machinery and Intelligence," "Turing sidestepped the debate about exactly how to define thinking by means of a very practical, albeit subjective, test: if a computer acts, reacts, and interacts like a sentient being, then call it sentient. To avoid prejudicial rejection of evidence of machine intelligence, Turing suggested the 'imitation game,' now known as the Turing test: a remote human interrogator, within a fixed time frame, must distinguish between a computer and a human subject based on their replies to various questions posed by the interrogator. By means of a series of such tests, a computer's success at 'thinking' can be measured by its probability of being misidentified as the human subject. Turing predicted that by the year 2000 a computer 'would be able to play the imitation game so well that an average interrogator will not have more than a 70-percent chance of making the right identification (machine or human) after five minutes of questioning.' No computer has come close to this standard" (Britannica). Along with Turing's own 1936 paper "On Computable Numbers," "Computing Machinery and Intelligence" is regarded as one of the foundational works on artificial intelligence.In MIND, A Quarterly Review of Psychology and Philosophy, Vol. 59, No. 236, October, 1950, pp. 433-460.

Howard Somervell on the title page and also signed by his wife, Margaret Somervell, on the dedication page under the printed dedication to her. She is mentioned frequently in the book.

On the 1922 expedition Somervell, Mallory and Norton became the first people ever to climb above 8000 meters under their own power (several balloon guys had gone higher, some dying). They reached about 8200 meters on Everest without supplemental oxygen. He joined the 1924 expedition, climbing to 28,000 feet, but was plagued this time with throat problems from the dry air. Somervell was one of the strongest & smartest of all the early Everest climbers. About half the book is on Somervell's Everest experiences. The book measures 179mm tall x 110mm, and has 319 pages, 2 sketches, 2 maps, bibliography, index.

Crime]. "The Inmates." ISHERWOOD, Christopher (Preface)
Retort Press, Bearsville, NY, 1950. 8vo. Stiff printed pictorial wraps in original dustjacket. One of 2000 copies, "entirely hand-set, hand-bound, and printed on a footpedal press by the editors." Jacket lightly rubbed with some chipping, esp. to lower spine. Faint staining. Unclipped. Mild wear to yapp edge of book. Very good overall. INSCRIBED in pencil by contributor James Peck to verso of front endpaper: "Mildred - You said you wanted to read what I wrote about the jig. Well, here is some of it and some of what others wrote. It gives you the feel of jailhouse [sic]. I think the book will interest you. I think they did a groovy job on the cover. -Jim." Noted, but slightly misleadingly-titled "anthology of the Prison Writings of Conscientious Objectors to World War II" (front flap), inscribed by one of its contributors, legendary activist and pacifist James Peck. Peck devoted himself to nonviolent resistance and in addition to serving three years at Danbury for refusing to serve during the war, he fought for decades for labor, peace, and civil rights, and was arrested dozens of times during his life. Indeed, he was a prominent figure in the 1970s prison reform movement in no small measure because of his numerous incarcerations, whose earliest experiences are detailed here. Includes a lengthy jacket blurb by Aldous Huxley [Bromer B75] as well as striking illustrations by Lowell Naeve. While the book is not terribly uncommon, it is complete and in collectible condition. And scarce when inscribed by a contributor. An interesting inscription, even almost certainly a later one … [Click Below for Full Description]

On offer is a super, original manuscript relic of the post World War II era of polio victims being the 1950 hardcover handwritten diary of an unidentified teenage girl from Ogden, Utah who was stricken with Bulbar Polio in 1949 and had spent time in an Iron Lung for two weeks. A Dr. C. H. Jensen did a tracheotomy because she still couldn't breathe.

She gets lots of penicillin shots and attended physical therapy.

Chandler, Raymond Thornton (1888-1959)
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1950. x+533 pages. Octavo (8 1/4" x 5 3/4") bound in original publisher's beige cloth with brown lettering to spine and cover in original pictorial jacket.The Simple Art of Murder is hard-boiled detective fiction author Raymond Chandler's critical essay, a magazine article, and his collection of short stories. The essay was first published in The Atlantic Monthly in December 1944. The magazine article appeared in the Saturday Review of Literature, April 15, 1950. The article, somewhat rewritten, served to introduce the collection The Simple Art of Murder, 1950 (Houghton Mifflin Co.), which contained eight of Chandler's early stories pre-dating his first novel, The Big Sleep. The essay is considered a seminal piece of literary criticism. Although Chandler's primary topic is the art (and failings) of detective fiction, he touches on general literature and modern society as well. Chandler reserves his praise for Dashiell Hammett. Although Chandler and Hammett were contemporaries and grouped as the founders of the hard-boiled school, Chandler speaks of Hammett as the "one individual... picked out to represent the whole movement," noting Hammett's mastery of the "American language", his adherence to reality, and that he "gave murder back to the kind of people that commit it for reasons, not just to provide a corpse."Condition:Book plate to front paste-down, spine ends rubbed with a few minor splits, some age toning to edges.

No place, [1950]. Small folio (220 x 276 mm). 99, (1) pp. Illustrated throughout. Original blue cloth with gilt title "GB AVP 41" stamped to upper cover. Commemorative publication "written, compiled and produced by [the] officers and men" of the U.S.S. Greenwich Bay after the ship's first tour of duty to the Persian (Arabian) Gulf as flagship for the Commander of the U.S. Navy Middle East Force. In the foreword, Commander K. G. Hensel acknowledges the Gulf as "one of the oldest yet least known parts of the world", a historic region that has "served for thousands of years as pathway of commerce by caravan and by dhow. Today, these areas are strategically among the most important that exist anywhere on the surface of the globe" (p. 3). - The small seaplane tender "Greenwich Bay" departed Norfolk on 30 April 1949 for a six-month mission, four months of which were spent in the Gulf area based at Bahrein, calling at Kuwait, Ras al Misha'ab, Ras Tanura, Sharjah, and Muscat before returning to Norfolk on 1 November. Every year thereafter the ship would repeat this duty, sailing through the Mediterranean to operate as flagship in the Red Sea, Gulf, and Indian Ocean for 4 to 6 months. In total, the "Greenwich Bay" made 15 Mediterranean deployments. This fully illustrated record contains rare images of a fire at Aramco's Ras Tanura oilfield that scorched the ship's hull, scenes from Manama, Bahrein, the "distinguished guests" who visited aboard (dignitaries of the Gulf countries visited, including a portrait of HRH Faisal al Saud on board the "Greenwich Bay"), etc. In addition to ope … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAMUS ALBERT
Gallimard, Paris 1950, 12x19cm, broché sous chemise et étui. Edition originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Une tache pale au deuxième plat de couverture, papier jauni, notre exemplaire est présenté sous chemise en demi chagrin gris et étui, ensemble signé de signé Devauchelle. Précieux envoi autographe signé des initiales d'Albert Camus à son proche ami André Belamich. Belamich rencontre Camus en 1932 sur les bancs du cours de philosophie de Jean Grenier au lycée Bugeaud d'Alger, la fameuse « Khâgne africaine ». Après avoir participé ensemble à l'aventure du Parti Communiste Algérien, Camus et Belamich forment avec d'autres penseurs et artistes ce que l'on nomme aujourd'hui ""l'Ecole d'Alger"" réunissant autour de l'éditeur et libraire Edmond Charlot une génération d'esprits progressistes dont Claude de Fréminville, Max-Pol Fouchet, René-Jean Clot, emmanuel Roblès et Gabriel Audisio. Après plusieurs traductions pour Charlot de Jane Austin et David Lawrence, Belamich devient surtout, à l'initiative et avec le soutien de Camus, le principal traducteur de Garcia Lorca et l'instigateur de sa diffusion en France. L'indéfectible amitié qui l'unit à Camus jusqu'à sa mort - il est à ses côtés lors de la remise de son Prix Nobel - font de lui un des principaux témoins de la vie de l'écrivain comme l'attestent ses contributions aux biographies de Herbert R. Lottman et de Olivier Todd. Emouvant et précieux envoi à cet ami des premières heures algériennes qui ont construit l'humanisme de Camus et auxquelles il consacra son dernier roman inachevé : « Le premier homme ». … [Click Below for Full Description]

Karel APPEL & Hugo CLAUS.
Cobra-Bibliotheek. pp. (16). With the seven illustrations, each hand-coloured by Karel Appel. He has also hand-coloured the illustration on the front cover. One of the landmark early Cobra artist's books. Karel Appel and Hugo Claus created this book at the end of 1950, when they were both living in Paris. It was published as the first number of the Cobra-bibliotheek's "Hand-reeks" (Hand Series). The book consists of seven hand-written texts and drawings, which were subsequently duplicated using a photocopying system. Karel Appel then coloured the illustrations by hand. His work exhibits the playful, colourful shapes that were inspired by children's drawings and which are so typical of the work of the Cobra artists. Advance subscribers could receive this book for just three guilders, but unfortunately there were only three subscribers. This partly explains why the second volume in the Hand-reeks was never published. De Blijde en Onvoorziene Week was published in an edition of 200 numbered copies, signed by Hugo Claus and Karel Appel on the title page. This copy is complete with the original printed order sheet or Bestelbiljet for the book, with an additional hand-coloured illustration by Appel. Loose as issued in original thin card folder, with additional hand-coloured illustration by Karel Appel. Cover slightly browned, overall a very good copy. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

CAMUS, Albert
(Paris): Charlot, 1950. Softcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. First edition, limited issue. Tall octavo. Small chip at the spine crown, very good in printed wrappers and unprinted glassine dustwrapper. One of 120 copies reserved for the use of the author of a total edition of 1343 copies. This is copy number 848 on Rives paper. The copies numbered between 801 to 920 were the author's copies. Inscribed by the author: "a Nicole, et Jean Marie/ avec la fidele affection/ de leur vieux camarade/ Albert Camus." ["To Nicole, and Jean Marie/ with the faithful affection/of their old comrade/ Albert Camus."]. The recipients were almost certainly Nicole and Jean-Marie Domenach, French intellectuals and friends of Camus, albeit with some philosophical differences. Jean-Marie was a noted left wing Catholic thinker, and while he and Camus were both vocal in protesting such activities as the French use of torture during the Algerian Civil War, Domenach had considerably more sympathy for the socialist and communist governments of the time, which Camus found repugnant. It is interesting to note the comma in the inscription, as though the inclusion of Jean-Marie in the presentation was an afterthought, or perhaps a necessity of politesse. Long after Camus had died, Jean-Marie Domenach provided a preface to a book of his thinking, *Albert Camus and Christianity. Hope on Trial.* The deluxe editions of this title turn up at auction with some regularity, but we were unable to find any instance of one of the author's copies in the market, and very few copies of this limited edition have ever turned … [Click Below for Full Description]

TURING, ALAN
New York: Thomas Nelson & Sons, Ltd, 1950. First edition. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Alan Turing's landmark explanation of what would become known as the "Turing test" to determine whether a machine can 'think'. In "Computing Machinery and Intelligence," "Turing sidestepped the debate about exactly how to define thinking by means of a very practical, albeit subjective, test: if a computer acts, reacts, and interacts like a sentient being, then call it sentient. To avoid prejudicial rejection of evidence of machine intelligence, Turing suggested the 'imitation game,' now known as the Turing test: a remote human interrogator, within a fixed time frame, must distinguish between a computer and a human subject based on their replies to various questions posed by the interrogator. By means of a series of such tests, a computer's success at 'thinking' can be measured by its probability of being misidentified as the human subject. Turing predicted that by the year 2000 a computer 'would be able to play the imitation game so well that an average interrogator will not have more than a 70-percent chance of making the right identification (machine or human) after five minutes of questioning.' No computer has come close to this standard" (Britannica). Along with Turing's own 1936 paper "On Computable Numbers," "Computing Machinery and Intelligence" is regarded as one of the foundational works on artificial intelligence. In MIND, A Quarterly Review of Psychology and Philosophy, Vol. 59, No. 236, October, 1950, pp. 433-460. New York: Thomas Nelson & Sons, Ltd., 1950. Octavo, or … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOEB, Philip]
A small grouping of items relating to the life of Philip Loeb, an actor best known for his radio work on the hit program "The Goldbergs." The collection likely comes from another actor named John Most, as his name appears on several of these documents. Loeb was accused of being a communist in 1950 and was subsequently blacklisted. Loeb steadfastly denied communist sympathies, but the blow to his professional life was too much to bear, and Loeb commited suicide in a hotel room in New York in 1955. Included are two postcard-sized photographic prints of Loeb watching a rehearsal of a play he was directing on Broadway, "The Three Sisters," by Chekhov; an 8" x 15" program for that same play; an an 8" x 10" portrait of Loeb, inscribed by him to Johnny Most; a program for a play produced by Loeb entitled "Common to the Trade" (about 7.5" x 11"); some news clippings of Loeb's untimely death; and, perhaps most interestingly, a small postcard depicting First National Studios in Hollywood, with a small note from Loeb on the back, adressed to Most: "the colored ones are those I have organized. Love, Phil." Loeb had a long career as an officer in the Actor's Equity Association, now over a century old, and one of the most consistently radical unions in the entertinment world, having stood for integration in the 1940s, and steadfastly against McCarthyism in the 1950s (while the Screen Actor's Guild has a much more checkered history). Condition varies from good to very good, with general age-toning to some documents, some old tape or glue residue on the reverse of some pieces, but the coll … [Click Below for Full Description]

[NIN, Anais]. "ANIN"
Carmel [CA]: (The Press of the Sunken Eye), 1950. First Edition. 4to. Carbon typescript bound in full blue cloth with titles gilt to spine. Marbled endpapers. Mild bumping, rubbing. Small tear to cloth at base of spine. Top board a bit bowed. Two contemporary newspaper clippings pasted to prelim. with attendant offsetting to title page. Ownership signature ("Dave Wauters") to same. Solidly very good or better overall. One of five copies "reproduced on latrine rag," this #2. Holograph signed postcard from Nin loosely laid in to poet and painter Alvaro Cardona-Hine, whose copy this was. [iii]. [1]-43, [i], 1-51. The origins, both bibliographically and biographically, of Anais Nin's AULETRIS are murky to say the least. The book's rarity, issued in a typescript edition of just 5 copies by a mysterious press, has undoubtedly contributed to this. But so too have the competing motivations of the principals, the secrecy surrounding the production of erotica during a period when obscenity trials were still common, and Nin and (apparent co-conspirator) Henry Miller's own obfuscations. What is known with some certainty is the following. First, that "Press of the Sunken Eye" was the operation of California bookseller Milton Luboviski and that Luboviski printed just two books under that imprint: the present volume and OPUS PISTORUM, attributed to Henry Miller, both in 1950. Miller and Nin famously began penning pornography for Oklahoma collector Roy Mellisandre Johnson in 1940, and while Miller soon grew tired of the project (which paid $1/page), Nin continued both to write fo … [Click Below for Full Description]
