        The Catcher In The Rye

      Boston: Little Brown, 1951.. Boston: Little Brown, 1951. First edition of the author&#39;s first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a bright near fine dust jacket without the usual tanning to the spine and without any chips or tears. The dust jacket is the correct first issue with the cropping of Salinger&#39;s head on the rear panel and the price on the front flap. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional copy. Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher In the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he&#39;s been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists. It begins, "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you&#39;ll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don&#39;t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them.

        Colloque de l'Institut Blaise Pascal 8-13 janvier 1951. Les machines a calculer et la pensee humaine.

      Paris 1951 - Centre national de la recherche scientifique. Colloque de l'Institut Blaise Pascal 8-13 janvier 1951. Les machines a calculer et la pense e humaine. Paris: Centre national de la recherche scientifique, 1951. Mimeographed typescript, bound with printed program. Black cloth. Program: [4]pp. Text: [119]ff., variously numbered. 267 x 208 mm. The program and the mimeographed synopses and translations were distributed separately at the conference. They were later bound together in this volume. Light to moderate toning. Provenance: Alwin Walther and the Institut fur Praktische Mathematik at Technische Hochschule, Darmstadt, with rubber stamp. This was the first full-scale symposium on electronic computing in France. Bound in this volume are the original printed program of the conference together with mimeographed synopses of each speech presented. In handing out these synopses the organizers provided English summaries of some of the speeches that were presented in French and French summaries of some of the speeches that were presented in English. These summaries and partial translations were not included in the official published edition that appeared two years later. In that edition the list of attendees was published. It indicated that Alwin Walther, the former owner of this material, was one of about three hundred people in attendance.A notable aspect of this large symposium on analog and digital electronic computing machines was that, unlike all other early conferences on electronic computers, there was no stored-program electronic digital computer demonstrated. Instead Louis Couffignal, director of the Laboratoire de Calcul Mecanique at the Institut Blaise Pascal, demonstrated the prototype of his own much-publicized electronic calculator, a binary machine whose design emphasized organization of calculation procedures rather than the storage of programs and data. This took place at the symposium's third session on "large computing machines, logic, and the physiology of the nervous system." That section took a cybernetic approach. Couffignal chose to make the last presentation at the conference, speaking on "Some new analogies between computing machine structures and brain structures." Couffignal's preference for a non-stored-program approach to computing caused a setback in the nascent French electronic computer industry. The physicist and Nobel prize winner Louis de Broglie gave the keynote address at the conference. Among the other speakers were Howard Aiken, who provided a serious illustrated account of the Harvard Mark IV; Andrew D. Booth; Warren S. McCulloch; Gonzalo Torres y Quevedo; Norbert Wiener; Maurice Wilkes; F. C. Williams; and Tom Kilburn. Eduard Stiefel presented an extensively illustrated account of the use of the Z4 at Zurich to solve specific problems, which is separately noted in this bibliography.When we checked no copies of these ephemeral documents were cited in OCLC.

      Paris, Editions Arts du Monde, 1951.. 33 x 26 cm, 12 ill. En ff., couv. impr., chemise et etui editeur.. Edition originale illustree, tirage limite a 400 ex. num., premier livre de l'artiste, ex. signe au crayon par Cecile Reims au colophon.Texte en francais et hebreu.- Cecile Reims (1927) est une artiste francaise ayant grandi en Lituanie dans une famille juive traditionnelle. Rescapee de la clandestinite imposee par la guerre et d'une grave tuberculose, l'artiste s'est sentie le devoir de donner un sens sa survie et est " entree en art ", comme on entrerait en religion. En 1945, le graveur Joseph Hecht lui fait decouvrir le burin, instrument exigeant qui deviendra cependant l'outil privilegie de la jeune artiste. Afin de soutenir le travail de son compagnon Fred Deux, elle se detache de sa propre creation pour devenir graveur d'interpretation, reportant en gravure le dessin d'autres artistes. Elle collabore ainsi secretement a l'oeuvre grave de nombreux artistes, dont Hans Bellmer de 1966 a 1975, Salvador Dali de 1969 a 1988, Fred Deux de 1970 a 2008, ou Leonor Fini de 1972 a 1995. Neanmoins, l'artiste ressent de nouveau le besoin de developper son univers personnel. L'album La Chenille consacre en 1986 cette sortie d'une certaine clandestinite artistique, a laquelle met definitivement un terme une importante retrospective a la Bibliotheque nationale de France en 2004. .

        The Presidency

      New York - The Macmillan Company, 1951. New York - The Macmillan Company, 1951 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A smart copy of this history of the Presidency of the United States in a presentation slipcase. Illustrated throughout with many photographs, cartoons and more. Stefan (Istvan) Lorant (February 22, 1901 in Budapest, Hungary - November 14, 1997 in Rochester, Minnesota) was a pioneering Hungarian-American filmmaker, photojournalist, and author. In 1776, the Thirteen Colonies, acting through the Second Continental Congress, declared political independence from Great Britain during the American Revolution. The new states, though also independent of each other,recognized the necessity of coordinating their efforts against the British. Desiring to avoid anything that remotely resembled a monarchy, Congress negotiated the Articles of Confederation to establish a weak alliance between the states. As a central authority, Congress under the Articles was without any legislative power; it could make its own resolutions, determinations, and regulations, but not any laws, nor any taxes or local commercial regulations enforceable upon citizens. This institutional design reflected the conception of how Americans believed the deposed British system of Crown and Parliament ought to have functioned with respect to the royal dominion: a superintending body for matters that concerned the entire empire. Out from under any monarchy, the states assigned some formerly royal prerogatives (e. g. , making war, receiving ambassadors, etc. ) to Congress, while keeping the rest for themselves. The Articles took effect on March 1, 1781, when Maryland became the final state to ratify them. In all, 43 individuals have served 55 four-year terms. Condition: In a full morocco binding with gilt detailing. Externally smart, with very little shelfwear. Slipcase has a few marks, but is otherwise smart. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright and clean, with just a fewmarksto the verso of the endpaper. Overall: NEAR FINE with a VERY GOOD INDEED slipcase..

        KOREAN WAR PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM. 300 Photographs. 1951 - 1953

      (n. p.): , (n. d.). (n. p.):. (n. d.).. 10-3/4" x 16". 1st edition thus. 22 leaves.. Black laquered album with peacock and Mount Fuji mother-of-pearl inlay to front cover, silk ties. Black mounting paper with red photo corners. Some glassine layers between leaves.. Album rubbed and silk ties gone from top, rear board hinge almost. detached. Photographs generally Very Good or better, with glassine. layers mostly torn. A Good+ to VG item.. Unless they were on the front lines equipped with C-Rations, members of the U. S. Army stationed in Japan in the 1950s enjoyed hearty, well- prepared meals - particularly the officers. This photograph album titled by its compiler "Far East Command 1951 - 1952 - 1953" contains snapshots and formal staff pictures of what appears to be the officers' mess of Pershing Heights - HQ for the Far East Command in Tokyo. The photographs show large kitchens, Japanese cooks and waitresses in starched uniforms, dining rooms, and elaborate desserts on serving tables. During his time in Japan, this officer also seems to have enjoyed some leisure time - trips to the beach with bikini-clad women, temples, sacred springs and other tourist attractions. He also photographed the interior of his own quarters, some locals, and many of the official buildings and their grounds. During the "Third Korean Winter" however, he was sent North with the army as General Ridgway began "meatgrinder" tactics to regain the Korean peninsula. This second part of the album, with pasted-in typewritten title "Pictures Taken in Korea 1952 - 1953", shows a rougher outfit, with jeeps and artillery in the snow, sandbagged quarters, bundled- up Korean soldiers, and what appears to be a portable mess. Despite the circumstances, the cooks must have had efficient facilities in which to work; there is one small photograph of an elaborately iced and decorated cake proudly held by two chefs in white toques. At this time the major generals ordered food for their officers from Japan. The basic fare was apparently popular and was even said to be enjoyed by visiting entertainers like Jack Benny and Debbie Reynolds. There are several pictures of USO performances in this part of the album. . 300 b/w photographs ranging in size, mainly 3" x 4-1/2" and 2" x 2". Few photographs missing. Some photographs contained in an envelope in rear of album.

Rote Original-Ganzleinenbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln auf zwei schwarzen Rückenschildern. Format: 27 x 18,5 cm. Farbiger Kopfschnitt. Lesebändchen.

Vom Kaiserreich bis zum Ende der Weimarer Republik hatte die deutsche Chemie sowohl von den industriellen Standards her als auch auf wissenschaftlichem Sektor eine weltweit führende Stellung inne.

Nach den Verwerfungen des Dritten Reiches, das auch die Naturwissenschaften ideologisch zu durchdringen versuchte ("deutsche" Chemie), konnte diese Tradition wiederaufgenommen werden mit dem Ergebnis, daß die deutsche Chemieindustrie bis heute ihren hohen Leistungsstandard im Weltmaßstab bewahren konnte.. Alle Bände in gutem, unversehrtem Zustand. Ein Band noch im Original-Schutzumschlag und im zugehörigen Schuber.
