Betty Parsons Gallery. This sale is for two pieces from the 1951 Jackson Pollock exhibit at Betty Parsons' Gallery: the (8.5" x 11") catalogue, in very good overall condition, with sunning to the cover borders, slight curl to the lower outside corners, and occasional surface scuffs, but no prominent stains, no tears, and no notable fade to any art or text, and the accompanying (17" x 22") two-sided poster, with the sale particulars in text on one side and Jackson Pollock art, signed in the plate, on the other side.

Catcher in the Rye J.D. Salinger 1951 1st / 1st printing Rare The Catcher in the Rye By J.D. Salinger Published by: Little, Brown, and Company Printed in: 1951 Pages: 277 ----- Features ----- - Original Black Boards - First edition, First printing Condition This book is a First edition, First printing. This book is in good condition. There is some wear to the top of the spine. The lettering to the spine is faded. There is some yellowing to the endpapers and no signatures, bookplate, or markings of any other kind. The pages are clean and free of any foxing. This is a rare First edition of a Salinger's classic that's a rare find in any condition. Synopsis Written in the first person, The Catcher in the Rye follows Holden's experiences in New York City in the days following his expulsion from Pencey Prep, a college preparatory school. Holden spends a total of two days in the city, characterized largely by drunkenness and loneliness. It is clear to the reader, if not to Holden, that the teenager is afraid and nervous about the process of change and growing up. These concerns may largely have stemmed from the death of his brother, Allie. Eventually, he sneaks into his parents' apartment to visit his younger sister Phoebe, who is nearly the only person with whom he seems to be able to communicate. Holden shares a fantasy he has been thinking about; he pictures himself as the sole guardian of several children playing a game of ball in a huge rye field on the edge of a cliff. His job is to catch the children if they wander close to the brink, to be a "catcher in the rye". As Holden … [Click Below for Full Description]

William F. Buckley, Jr.
Chicago: Henry Regnery Company, 1951. God and Man at Yale, the seminal work of modern conservative thought, SIGNED & inscribed by William F. Buckley. I recall meeting William Buckley in Kirksville, Missouri. Buckley was founder of "The National Review", the seminal Republican periodical (and a go-to for President Ronald Reagan). He was in town for a young Republican club meeting and I was working for US Senator Ashcroft at the time and was up for the meeting cause it was election year. God & Man at Yale details the experience of being an outspoken student and conservative attending a liberal, Ivy League University. This book is attributed with birthing the modern conservative movement in America. The dust jacket has two tears on its spine and a small water stain on the back. The binding is sound. One can find other signed editions for over $1,000. I feel that the minor wear justifies a more modest price even though it has the unique inscription and highlighting of Mr. Buckley's biographical profile. The dust jacket is protected by an archival mylar sleeve (FREE). Mr. Buckley has inscribed a brief note to Ms. Betty Purcell in red ballpoint ink. in addition, he has underlined two sentences in his introduction: "Clearly he was someone... fighting a losing fight." Shipping is FREE and 1st class. In addition to fully insured. NOTE: any refund will require recipient to return the book. [Attributes: In Dust Jacket]

Isaac Asimov
Asimov, Isaac - Foundation - Gnome Press: New York, 1951 (1954) - First Edition / First Printing / Second State Binding / Second Issue Dust Jacket - "First Edition" stated on the copyright page. Second issue binding. Second issue dust jacket with the correct, 32, title count on the rear panel, "$2.75" price present, and "Sheldon" error on the front flap corrected (more detailed information below). "If you're born in a cubicle and grow up in a corridor, and work in a cell, and vacation in a crowded sun-room, then coming up into the open with nothing but sky over you might just give you a nervous breakdown." The book has some shelf wear which is most notable to the spine ends, a touch of rubbing and the block starting to tan. The boards remain pleasingly straight, the lettering on the spine is bright, the binding is square and firm, and internally there is no writing or other markings. The dust jacket has a tear, stains to the front panel, some edge wear and shallow bites at the spine ends and tips. All together a still rather handsome copy of a notoriously fragile book and dust jacket. This is the second state of the book which was issued in 1954. The binding is slightly different and, confusingly for many collectors, it retains the same "First Edition" statement on the copyright page as the first issue. The dust jacket is the correct second state with 32 titles to the rear. The third issue was published later by Doubleday and is fairly easy to distinguish. There were 5000 copies of the first state of the book, within which there were variants, and only 2500 copies of this s … [Click Below for Full Description]

A better than average copy of a book usually found read to pieces. Stiff wraps. This report contains 34 articles plus the introduction covering material given at a symposium on transistors held at the Bell Telephone Laboratories during the week beginning Sept. 17, 1951. It includes work from luminaries like William Shockley (1956 Nobel Laureate in Physics with Bardeen and Brittain for "their researches on semiconductors and their discovery of the transistor effect") who contributed to three articles including "Holes and Electrons" (derived from his similarly named book) and "The Theory of p-n Junctions in Semi-Conductors and p-n Junction Transistors" (published previously in the Bell System Technical Journal). From the transistor's invention in 1948 through the early 1950s the fledgling electronics industry was encouraged and funded by the military, driving significant research into this startling new technology and it's potential. In retrospect, the transistor was one of the most signficant inventions of the 20th century.

1951. Williams, Frederic C. (1911-77); Tom Kilburn (1921-2001); Geoff C. Tootill (1922-2017). Universal high-speed digital computers: A small-scale experimental machine. Offprint from Proceedings of the Institution of Electrical Engineers 98 (1951). 13-28pp. Text diagrams. 278 x 204 mm. Original printed wrappers, detached, somewhat soiled, spine repaired with clear tape. Offprint vertically creased, but overall good. Bookplate of Erwin Tomash. First Edition, Offprint Issue. One of the earliest scientific descriptions of the Manchester Baby computer, the world's first electronic stored-program computer. The "Baby," also known as the Small-Scale Experimental Machine, was designed by Williams, Kilburn and Tootill to test the Williams tube (the first random-access computer memory device); it ran its first program in June 1948. Although small and primitive, the "Baby" contained all the elements essential to a modern electronic computer. The "Baby" was developed into the Manchester Mark I (1949), which in turn served as the prototype for the Ferranti Mark I (1951), the world's first commercially available general-purpose computer.

OUR COLLECTION OF WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS WAS PURCHASED FROM THE HOME IN VENTNOR THE CITY NEXT TO OUR GREAT ATLANTIC CITY. Roland De Hellebranth A Doctor who performed surgeries at home and sisters Bertha de Hellebranth and Elena were born into a cultured upper-class family in Budapest, Bertha in 1899, Elena in 1897. Their father was a lawyer and their mother a student of Franz Liszt's last living pupil. They studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Budapest, at the Académie Julian and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, and painted portraits of European nobility. As Patricia Fazekas points out, Growing up in a family of privilege, they seemed to have unusual access to many illustrious people. So we should not be surprised to find among their subjects members of high society, such as Count Andrássy Gyula, the Russian-born Princess Baby Galitzine, and Admiral Horthy Miklós, the Regent. Later on, their subjects included American heiress Gladys Vanderbilt (Countess László Széchenyi), President Theodore Roosevelt's granddaughter Paulina Longworth and former President Dwight D.

BELL, Vanessa
13th July 1951.. Plain postcard, headed "Charleston, Firle, Sussex" in Bell's hand, addressed on the other side to Rothenstein in Great Bardfield and postmarked Lewes. A slightly sharp note requesting a cheque from Rothenstein, continuing "I should be glad to know whether you still intend to use the press, as the number of people who can do so is limited and we are having to refuse some who would like to join". She goes on to detail how payments to the printer Ernest Devenish could be made in person and directions for accessing the studio at 1a Upper Harley Street. The postcard refers to a short-lived venture organised by Bell and Duncan Grant. In 1951 they bought a lithographic press from Caroline Lucas of the Miller's Gallery in Lewes and had it moved to London. Gathering a group of artists including Rothenstein, Edward Ardizzone and Trekkie Ritchie as subscribers they arranged for Devenish, who along with his brother George was one of the most respected printers in the capital, to work with them. Rothenstein obviously paid up as he and the others produced a number of lithographic works, though the costs eventually told and the project folded at the end of 1952.

Winston Churchill (1951) 'The Second World War - The Hinge of Fate', voulme IV of the six books series on WWII, UK first edition, first printing, published by Cassell. Signed and inscribed in ink by Winston Churchill: "For John Biggs-Davison from Winston Churchill, 1951". Sir John Alec Biggs-Davison (1918- 1988) was MP for the Conservatives from 1955 until his death in 1988. A wondeful association: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Biggs-Davison Condition: a very good copy with no previous owner's scribbles, no bookplates, no stamps. Some light shelf wear. The dust jacket is the correct first issue jacket, priced 25s. Slight edge wear with minor chipping and slight fade on spine. Prospective buyers of Winston Churchill signed books or ephemera should be cautious. Many 'flat signed' copies are forgeries. Inscribed copies add another layer of protection as it is more difficult to mimic a signature AND hadwriting. As a prominent book dealer once expressed: 'flat signed' deserves 'flat refusal': https://www.theguardian.com/books/booksblog/2014/may/16/flat-signed-book-collecting-term We are happy to consider reasonable offers. 'The Hinge of Fate' focuses on the war arena in Asia. Churchill's 'The Second Waorld War'; would contribute significantly to earning him the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953. First and Fine.
