        THE PREPARATION OF PROGRAMS FOR AN ELECTRONIC DIGITAL COMPUTER, with Special Reference to the EDSAC and the Use of a Library of Subroutines

      Cambridge, Mass: Addison-Wesley, 1951 A Pioneering Book From The Dawn Of The Computer Age. A Review Copy in Dustwrapper Of The First Practical Text Book On Digital Computing. First Edition. An especially Fine Copy in a previously unrecorded dustwrapper. Tall 8vo., pp [14] incl. 2 full-page, photo illus. before title-page (one on back of half-title), 167, [3]. Light, red RSM diagonally across half-title 'BOOK REVIEW COPY'. Original brown cloth. Light-brown, plain dustwrapper which, due to its minimal wear, slight browning & exact fit, has all the appearances of having been issued with the book, allowing the covers of the book to have been preserved in 'as-new' condition. A narrow section of the dustwrapper spine-panel has been removed, presumably to allow the book to be identified without removing the plain unprinted dustwrapper & discarding it which was likely the case in every case. Internally fresh & clean. Excellent fine copy. Remarkable as this title ended up primarily in libraries to be marked stamped, coded & pocketed accordingly. The first generally published text on computer programming. Refs: (Williams, Hist. Computing Technology, p. 337; see also pp. 331-38). Lee, Computer Pioneers, pp. 730-35. OOC/Origins of Cyberspace 1030. Working with the EDSAC at Cambridge, Wilkes used a symbolic assembly language [Assembler] which was further developed by Wheeler under Wilkes' management in 1949. With Gill, they developed the concept of subroutines in programs to create reusable modules & as a team produced the first textbook on "The Preparation of Programs for an Electronic Digital Computer". This breakthrough was seminal to the very conceptualization of formalized "software" development; a term that was just a spec of dust on the horizon.. 1st Edition.

        CAT MORGAN INTRODUCES HIMSELF

      Faber Book News 1951 - Two pages of electrostencilled publicity mailing. The first page being an introduction (almost certainly written by Eliot) and the second page containing the poem, "Cat Morgan Introduces Himself". The extremely rare first appearance of Cat Morgan Introduces Himself, which was incorporated into "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" as the final poem from the 1953 (11th impression) edition onwards. The two page flyer was issued with Faber's Autumn and Winter Catalogue for 1951. The introductory page states, "The front cover of Faber & Faber's new Autumn and Winter catalogue bears an attractive drawing by Margaret Wolpe of the portico of 24, Russell Square. On the back cover you will find a [picture of a black cat] approaching. He is advancing to take up his favourite seat, cuddled up against and protected by the door-scraper. Morgan, for that is his name, is the Faber & Faber cat. We were astonished to find the biographical note written in verse, but perhaps this is not surprising if one considers the literary atmosphere in which he has passed so much of his life." The following poem carries the footnote to the effect that it may be reproduced without permission, and was according to Gallup "widely reprinted in various newspapers". It was issued under Eliot's name in the Animal's Magazine, and subsequently as a broadside by Donald Gallup entitled "Cat Morgan's Apology" in 1953, in an edition of 30 copies. Not listed in Gallup though referred to E2g (Gallup's 1953 Broadsheet). Copies of the poem are present in the British Library and as part of the Hayward bequest in King's College, Cambridge, though both seem to lack the introductory page. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        CATCHER IN THE RYE

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1951. First edition and First Printing. 8vo, publisher’s original black cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and in the original dustjacket featuring Salinger’s photo on rear cover credited to Lotte Jacobi and $3 price correctly positioned on front flap. 277 pp. A good and honest copy showing some use, but otherwise well preserved. The dustjacket with some evidence of age-wear at the extremities and with a chip at the bottom of the spine panel, the bottom of the dustjacket sometime trimmed slightly to clean the bottom edge. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING OF AN AMERICAN ICONIC WORK AND A 20TH CENTURY LITERARY CLASSIC. J.D. Salinger’s first and still, most famous work.. Salinger tapped into a common and necessary theme in American literature with his unhappy teenage character, Holden Caulfield, who runs away from his boarding school as part of his disgust with 'phoniness'. Caufield's feelings and the idiom in which he communicates them have made the book a symbol of purity and sensitivity to generations of readers and has insured that it will remain a particularly coveted title in modern literature.

        Catcher in the Rye, The

      London: Hamish Hamilton, 1951. First Impression. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine+. First UK Edition (First published in Great Britain 1951) of the author's masterwork. 8vo; 254pp. Publisher's French blue cloth, the spine lettered silver; in Fritz Wegner's pictorial dust jacket priced on the front flap 10s/6d. A Near Fine copy with just a shade of fading to the spine (but the lettering undiminished), a bit of speckling to the top edge, and a short closed tear (text completely untouched) and associated creasing to the top edge of two pages; in a Near Fine or better jacket, bright and vibrant, the the spine's crown lightly rubbed, the back panel dust-soiled with several dime-sized pink stains. Even after more than fifty years The Catcher in the Rye speaks to readers through the freshness of Holden's voice. . . . [Salinger's] words even have the power to transfigure some readers' lives, at least once with horrible consequences. On 8 December 1980 Mark David Chapman associated Holden's view of “phonies” with John Lennon. After assassinating the former Beatle across the street from Central Park, Chapman sat down, pulled out a copy of Catcher and waited for the police to arrive." (Literary Encyclopedia) Note: Yet another example of the value to be found in the graphically superior designs of most UK editions of American authors' works (our specialty). With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        The Catcher in the Rye [Inscribed by Salinger]

      Boston: Little, Brown. 1951. Later printing. Inscribed by the author. Salinger's classic first book, a coming-of-age novel that has influenced successive generations of young people with its adolescent hero's rejection of the "phoniness" of the adult world around him combined with the authenticity of his angry and alienated voice. Salinger's book retains much of the freshness it had when first published, and it stands as one of the great fictional accomplishments of 20th century American literature. Salinger left New York City in 1953 and became increasingly reclusive in subsequent years. He visited the New Yorker offices in 1959 and signed a few books for people there on that day, but very seldom after that appeared in public and almost never signed books. Signed copies of Catcher are one of the true rarities of modern American literature. This copy is inscribed by Salinger: "To Pearl Bsharah, with best wishes from J.D. Salinger/ The New Yorker/ April 13, 1959." Bsharah worked at The New Yorker. Fourteenth printing, with slight chipping to spine ends; near fine in a fine (restored) later printing, price-clipped dust jacket. In custom clamshell case. Hardcover.

        The Catcher in the Rye

      Boston: Little Brown and Co. 1951 - First edition. Publisher's black cloth in unrestored first issue dust jacket with $3.00 price correctly positioned and photo by Lotte Jacobi to rear panel. Raymond Chandler's copy, stamped on front free endpaper with his La Jolla, CA address and date "AUG 4 1951". Book with offsetting to endpapers from printer's glue, edges of textblock very minimally foxed, small creases to top corner of first few pages, else a clean and square copy with bright gilt to spine; bright and clean dust jacket with a few nicks and creases to corners, spine very slightly toned, light rubbing to extremities. Housed in a custom quarter leather case. A beautiful copy of one of the most popular books of the 20th century, from the library of writer, Raymond Chandler. Chandler acquired this book shortly after the first issue was printed, in July 1951. At this time, he was writing his first draft of The Long Goodbye. Catcher in the Rye is J.D. Salinger's first and only novel. It tells the story of protagonist and anti-hero Holden Caulfield, a disillusioned teenager who flees his prep school to wander the streets of New York City. Almost immediately after publication, Catcher in the Rye became both extremely popular and highly controversial. While many young people identified with Caulfield's teenage rebellion, critics were wary of the protagonist's explicit language and open questioning of his own sexuality. In 1981, Catcher in the Rye was simultaneously the second most taught novel in American public schools and the one of the nation's most censored books. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        CATCHER IN THE RYE

      Boston Little, Brown and Company 1951 - First edition and First Printing. 8vo, publisher’s original black cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and in the original dustjacket featuring Salinger’s photo on rear cover credited to Lotte Jacobi and $3 price correctly positioned on front flap. 277 pp. A good and honest copy showing some use, but otherwise well preserved. The dustjacket with some evidence of age-wear at the extremities and with a chip at the bottom of the spine panel, the bottom of the dustjacket sometime trimmed slightly to clean the bottom edge. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING OF AN AMERICAN ICONIC WORK AND A 20TH CENTURY LITERARY CLASSIC. J.D. Salinger’s first and still, most famous work. Salinger tapped into a common and necessary theme in American literature with his unhappy teenage character, Holden Caulfield, who runs away from his boarding school as part of his disgust with 'phoniness'. Caufield's feelings and the idiom in which he communicates them have made the book a symbol of purity and sensitivity to generations of readers and has insured that it will remain a particularly coveted title in modern literature.
