        Autograph letter signed ("Jean").

      Santo Sospir (Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat), 12. IV. 1951. - Small 4to. 1 p. To his translator into English, Mary Hoeck: "Je ne vous ai pas envoyé de lettre parce qu'il fallait que j'achève le portrait de Cégeste. Je crois que ce portrait peut vous plaire. J'avais, en outre l'obligation de répondre à und masse de correspondance qui s'empilait sur une table. J'ai vu, hier soir, le film de Sica (Miracle à Milan) - c'est une merveille et j'avais bien raison de dire que le fameux néoréalisme italien était le style même du conte oriental. Le film de Sica en est le triomphe. (Il du reste remporté un triomphe). De Sica a eu la gentillesse de déclarer au public qui n'aurait jamais osé faire ce film sans les miens - et il m'a embrasse sous la mitraille des photographes. Lorsqu'un homme triomphe, cette attitude est assez rare. Asquith aussi a été très élégant. Comme les journalistes lui disaient 'Vous êtes le Cocteau d'Agleterre' (sic) il a répondu: [']Hélas - je voudrais bien avoir ses dons'. Voilà la chronique de Cannes. Francine a acheté un bateau de 18 mètres sur lequel nous avons bravé le Mistral [.]".

        Abbott and Costello Go to Mars (Original handwritten manuscript of the treatment for the 1953 film, with subsequent typescript draft)

      Universal City, CA: Universal International, 1951. Screenwriter D.D. Beauchamp's handwritten manuscript treatment for the 1953 Universal film comedy, "Abbott and Costello Go to Mars." Present in its entirety is Beachamp's original treatment, executed in pencil, with holograph corrections. Interspersed throughout are the resulting typewritten pages (also with holograph corrections). The combined pages are bradbound with green studio covers, showing a date of December 5, 1951 (two years prior to the film's release, and well before production began), and the word "Treatment" written in ink at the top right corner, along with a stamped studio reference number. All told, a complete document of the original holograph manuscript and first typewritten draft of the film's treatment. "Abbott and Costello Go to Mars" was released in 1951, and is today held in some regard by B-movie science fiction buffs as well as Abbott and Costello fans. In the film, our heroes are maintenance men who accidentally stow away on board an experimental rocket ship--one that goes not to Mars but to Venus, only to land in the middle of a "Miss Universe" pageant. The pageant includes many worthy contestants, including Anita Ekberg. A superb original screen story for one of the twentieth century's most revered comedy teams, in its earliest form. Fine condition, with manuscript pages 8.5 x 13 inches, typewritten pages 8.5 by 11 inches. Housed in a custom quarter-leather clamshell box.

        The River [Le fleuve] (Archive of material from the 1951 film, including an original photograph of Renoir on the set with assistant director Satyajit Ray)

      France / India / US: Oriental Productions, Ltd. / United Artists, 1951. An archive of material for the 1951 film, including a vintage reference photograph of Renoir directing the film in Bengal, with his smiling 30-year-old assistant Satyajit Ray to his right. Also included in the archive are the original color program for the US release and a program produced specifically for the film's debut in San Francisco at the Stage Door Theatre. It is a point of interest that the film was distributed in the US via the Theatre Guild, resulting in many screenings in playhouses rather than traditional movie theaters. Renoir played a major role in defining what became known in the 1960s as an "auteur," and Ray was in the first generation of directors to inhabit that established definition. He is today considered one of the greatest directors of the twentieth century, and his involvement with Renoir's sole film to be made in India was critical to his career, which would begin properly 4 years later with "Pather Panchali" (1955). We have never before encountered a photograph of the two men together. The international program includes original essays by Renoir, Godden, and producer Kenneth McEldowney. "The River," an international co-production distributed by United Artists, concerns three young girls (two British, one Indian) in Bengal who become infatuated with an ex-soldier who comes into their lives. International program: Full-color, saddle-stitched card wrappers. 16 pages, 12 x 9 inches, saddle-stitched. Near Fine. Stage Door program: Black-and-white, saddle-stitched self-wrappers. 12 pages, 8.5 x 6 inches. Near Fine. Photograph: 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Fine. Criterion Collection 276.

        Revista Mundo Peronista. Coleccion Completa 93 Numeros.

      - Mundo Peronista (1951-1955): El 15 de julio de 1951 apareció la revista Mundo Peronista, órgano oficial de difusión de la ESP. De periodicidad quincenal, tamaño de 32x25 y con un total de 52 páginas, sus portadas eran a color, con fotografías o ilustraciones de Perón y Evita en forma alternativa. Escrito en lenguaje llano, simple y directo, su interior estaba impreso en color sepia, con abundantes fotografías, ilustraciones, secciones fijas y variables, artículos, notas y reportajes encabezados por títulos expresivos y contundentes. Se publicaron en total 93 números –los dos últimos dobles-hasta el 1º de septiembre de 1955; su precio inicial, que fue de $ 1,50 se duplicó al año de aparición, continuando así hasta el final. La impresión se realizaba en los talleres de la Editorial Haynes, que por entonces publicaba el diario El Mundo y las revistas El Hogar, Mundo Argentino, Mundo Agrario, Mundo Infantil, Mundo Deportivo y Mundo Radial. Su Director fue el escritor Jorge Newton, aunque ni él ni sus redactores aparecían con sus verdaderos nombres: algunos de los artículos y notas estaban firmados con seudónimos (Silo Gismo, Elicás, A De Menos, A De Mas, Loco Noce, El Observador Peronista, Fe, Justicialista, Mas de Capirote, Verissimus), otros con iniciales (O. R., J. G., J. C. M., E. S., J. N., M. A. D., E. B., E. P. O.), y otros no llevaban ni siquiera eso. ¿A que razón puede atribuirse tal determinación? Pues a que los redactores de la revista eran "ciudadanos peronistas" que escribían para la "masa ciudadana del Movimiento Peronista", razón por la cuál esa producción "no tiene propietario, puesto que quienes la realizan renuncian, inclusive, al derecho de propiedad intelectual que por las leyes les corresponde sobre la misma". Siguiendo esa línea, se apelaba a que los lectores reproduzcan los contenidos de la revista, pues de ese modo se cumplía con la misión que se había impuesto la publicación, es decir divulgar el pensamiento y la obra del general Perón y de Eva Perón: "Por lo tanto, todos aquellos colegas y lectores que contribuyan a ampliar el radio de acción que abarcamos, reproduciendo o divulgando el contenido de cada edición de Mundo Peronista, son, además de nuestros amigos, nuestros colaboradores, a quienes desde ya agradecemos cuanto hagan"13 . Sin embargo, a partir de que en las últimas ediciones aparecieron varios artículos firmados como por lo que expresan otras fuentes, pueden conocerse algunos colaboradores de fuste de la revista, como Elías Castelnuovo 14, Armando Cascella 15 y Américo Barrios 16. Mundo Peronista contenía publicidad estatal y privada. De la primera pueden mencionarse la del Banco de la Nación Argentina, Lotería de Beneficencia Nacional y Casinos, Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales (YPF), Flota Mercante del Estado, Caja Nacional de Ahorro Postal, Aerolíneas Argentinas, Ministerio de Transportes, Dirección Nacional de Industrias del Estado (DINIE), Dirección Provincial de Turismo de Córdoba y Lotería de Tucumán. De la segunda la había de tradicionales empresas extranjeras radicadas en nuestro país, como FIAT, Coca-Cola, Mercedes Benz, Shell, Fernet Branca, Pirelli, Nescafé, Philips, y también de empresas nacionales como SIAM Di Tella, La Cantábrica, Grafa, Quilmes, Techint, Acindar, Hierromat, Peuser, Terrabussi, Kraft, Sancor entre otras 17. No obstante ello, Mundo Peronista no alcanzaba, al menos en sus comienzos, a cubrir los costos de impresión –la publicidad estatal por caso no se cobraba, por lo que desde sus páginas solicitaba el apoyo de los lectores para renovar sus suscripciones antes de su vencimiento y también para lograr nuevos suscriptores. En efecto, la revista se vendía por suscripción y también por venta en los quiscos, habiendo alcanzado, según sus responsables, una tirada de 100.000 ejemplares. Al año de su aparición se crean la Editorial Mundo Peronista y el Departamento de Difusión. Por la primera se editan libros de Perón (Conducción Política, Los Mensajes de Perón), de Evi

        Mimeographed typescript:] Lectures on Communication Theory. Delivered in the Fall Term of 1951 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology

      [Cambridge Mass, 22 September 1951] - 4to (276 x 205 mm), ff [1] 83, with equations and diagrams in text; in very good condition, in contemporary buckram, labelled in gilt on spine. £6500First edition, a unique typescript of Gabor's MIT lectures on information and communication theory, including an extended discussion of the use of light waves in holography, for which Gabor was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1971. Gabor's discovery and development of holography comes directly from his work on information 'contained' in wave forms. The realization of holography had to await the invention of lasers in 1960 as a source for coherent light, but from 1947 on Gabor had already established all of the principles of holography and demonstrated it using conventional light sources.The Lectures open with a mathematical theory of signal analysis and representation. Gabor discusses Shannon's and Weiner's theories of information, the entropy of noise, principles and theories of information encoding, and the limitations of Shannon's theory. This is followed by a physical theory of signals, including the fundamental limitations of signal transmission and recognition in the light of classical and quantum physics. From page 46 on Gabor examines information theory in regard to light waves, and sets out the foundations of the theory of holography based upon the interference of coherent light beams. The work concludes with an examination of speech analysis and compression.Besides his foundation work on holography, the Lectures cover other fundamental discoveries of Gabor in the fields of information storage and retrieval, such as granular synthesis and time-frequency analysis.Dennis Gabor (1900-1979) was a Hungarian physicist who fled Nazi Germany in 1933 and came to Britain where he did all his major research. See DSB 17 pp 324-8.This typescript appears to be unique. The text was published by MIT in the following year on April 3, 1952 (Origins of cyberspace n 627); OCLC cites only one copy, at MIT, of the published version

        Faster than Thought: The Ferranti Nimrod Digital Computer. A brief survey of the field of digital computing with specific reference to the Ferranti Nimrod computer

      Hollinwood, Lancs: Ferranti Ltd, 1951. First edition. 12mo. original printed olive staple-bound wrappers, very occasional light pencil markings, else fine. In custom green clamshell cloth box, black gilt morocco spine label. A fine copy. First edition. 12mo. The first book on a computer game. The first book devoted to a computer game, available for purchase at the 1951 Festival of Britain with the event's symbol printed on the upper cover. The Ferranti Nimrod was revealed to the public as part of the Science Exhibition and was the first machine built exclusively for the purpose of playing a game. It ran a digital version of the ancient logic game, Nim. At the exhibition, the enormous 12 x 9 x 5 foot machine was unveiled. The public was encourage to play and among those in attendance was Alan Turing, who succeeded in beating the game to which the machine flashed the message "COMPUTER LOSES". Turing was an obvious candidate for the game, having published his landmark paper "Computing Machinery and Intelligence" the year prior. The contents include a general introduction on how to play the game followed by details on the related emergent sciences of computing and artificial intelligence. As an indication of how early the language is, it should be noted that the term "memory" is mentioned only as an alternative the preferred term "storage". Amid the instructions, the text emphasises that games are merely one example of the many applications of computers: "the theory of games is extremely complex and a machine that can play a complex game can also be programmed to carry out very complex practical problems. ... very similar to those required to examine the economies of a country in which neither a state of monopoly nor of free trade exists" (p19). OCLC only locates one copy in the United States, at the NYPL. Not listed in Hook and Norman.

        Dons des Feminines by Valentine Penrose, with a preface by Paul Eluard

      Paris: Les Pas Perdus, 1951. Paperback. Very Good +. Picasso. References: Cramer 61, Bloch 690, Baer 889 A Softcover Folio, sewn into original printed wrappers with tissue wrappers, as issued. The book is illustrated with halftone reproductions after collages by Valentine Penrose plus an original etching by Pablo Picasso. This is number 249 of 350 copies, sur Velin which includes the Picasso etching with the 2 bars, the cancellation mark. This etching shows the cancellation bars on the right upper corner, and is numbered 249/350 in pencil. Pablo Picasso especially made the etching for the book and is titled 'The Couple'. The full etching sheet measures approximately 13 inches X 10 inches. The actual etching plate measures approximately 6 5/8 X 8 1/2 inches. Sometimes the etching and the book become separated; rare to begin with, it is even more rare to find the etching and book still being offered together. The softcover book is in very good condition, with clean white pages. The first 2 pages, including the title page, have short tears coming in from the side margin, and 4 more pages after that have small creases in the upper right corner. There is very light wear to the head and heel of the spine, and some light wear to the corners. Otherwise, beautiful, and still in the original onion skin protective wrap. The etching is in near mint condition. There is some slight age toning to the sheet around the outer edges, and a very slight depression in the paper surface in the upper right edge of the plate; hardly of note. Book size approximately 13 x 10 inches. Valentina Penrose naturally embraced the Surrealist movement, she inspired Paul Eluard to write the preface of this book. Picasso, influenced by Eluard, was also inspired to make the beautiful etching that complete this edition. Cramer states that ?'The total edition was 400 copies, The first 50 copies of this book on Alfa wove with one impression of the etching in black, one in brown, and one from the cancelled plate all on china; numbers 51-400 are numbered.?' There appears to be only 11 impressions which were numbered and signed by Picasso.

Signed, dated, & Illustrated with a Caricature of himself by the Author; 8vo, beige buckram, red pictorial dust jacket, 251 + [1p. Epilogue} + [2] pages. Rare copy of Ray Bradbury's important collection of stories with his amusing SELF PORTRAIT/CARICATURE; inscribed to "Joel!' by the author; dated Oct. 23, 72." This third collection of short stories by the great Sci-Fi author includes "Prologue: The Illustrated Man," "The Long Rain," "Zero Hour," "The Velt," and "Kaleidoscope," among several other titles. According to Clute & Nicholls, Encyclopedia of SF: "RB's vintage years are normally thought to be 1946-55, his short-story collections of that period are certainly superior to those he produced later. They began with The Illustrated man (coll. 1951; with 2 stories added and 4 deleted, rev. 1952 UK), in which the tales are given a linking framework; they are all seen as magical tattoos which, springing from the body of the protagonist, become living stories. Three were filmed as The Illustrated Man by Jack Smight in 1968" (p.152). Rod Steiger starred in the film. Dust jacket has been slightly trimmed at corners not affecting the price of "$2.75" (therefore, first state) with slight rubbing and a few minute tears at extremities of the very good or better jacket.
