      Zurich, January 30, 1951 - 4to. 1 page. With typed transmittal envelope and the carbon copy of the 4-page typed letter by Code to which this is the reply, modest overall toning and edge-wear. „As far as I can judge from the distance, the case of the child you describe is that of a hysterical dissociation. Jung writes to Grant Code in New York. Jung provides advice to the caregiver of a 13-year old girl, recommending drawing as a "helpful outlet for bottled up unconscious phantasies." However, he concludes, "This is a badly prejudiced case, I'm afraid, and the outlook into the future is not particularly bright. But in the right hands even such people can develop and become not exactly normal but at least possible." Code's description of the girl's symptoms and history are pitiable.

        Real Algebraic Manifolds

      Baltimore, MD: Princton University Press. Very Good. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of one of Nash's most important papers. Nash "was bent on proving himself a pure mathematician... Even before completing his thesis on game theory, he turned his attention to the trendy topic of geometric objects called manifolds. Manifolds play a role in many physical problems, including cosmology. Right off the bat, he made what he called 'a nice discovery relating to manifolds and real algebraic varieties.' Hoping for an appointment at Princeton or another prestigious math department, he returned to Princeton for a post-doctoral year and devoted himself to working out the details of the difficult proof. "Many breakthroughs in mathematics come from seeing unsuspected connections between objects that appear intractable and ones that mathematicians have already got their arms around. Dismissing conventional wisdom, Nash argued that manifolds were closely related to a simpler class of objects called algebraic varieties. Loosely speaking, Nash asserted that for any manifold it was possible to find an algebraic variety one of whose parts corresponded in some essential way to the original object. To do this, he showed, one has to go to higher dimensions. "Nash's theorem was initially greeted with skepticism. Experts found the notion that every manifold could be described by a system of polynomial equations implausible. 'I didn't think he would get anywhere,' said his Princeton adviser. "Nash completed 'Real Algebraic Manifolds,' his favorite paper and the only one he concedes is nearly perfect, in the fall of 1951. Its significance was instantly recognized. 'Just to conceive the theorem was remarkable,' said Michael Artin, a mathematician at MIT. Artin and Barry Mazur, who was a student of Nash's at MIT, later used Nash's result to resolve a basic problem in dynamics, the estimation of periodic points. Artin and Mazur proved that any smooth map from a compact manifold to itself could be approximated by a smooth map such that the number of periodic points of period p grows at most exponentially with p. The proof relied on Nash's work by translating the dynamic problem into an algebraic one of counting solutions to polynomial equations..." (Kuhn and Nasar, The Essential John Nash). IN: Annals of Mathematics, Vol. 56., No. 3, pp. 405-421. Baltimore, MD: Princeton University Press, 1952. Octavo, original printed wrappers. Toning to spine and some light toning to rear wrappers; a hint of edgewear. An extremely well-preserved copy of one of Nash's greatest work.

        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.
