I am disgusted with Gaitskell [Hugh, leader of the Labour Party 1955-1963] who was a pupil of mine [at New College, Oxford] and a friend of long standing", he sends a copy of his letter to Gaitskell (present) "which I have no doubt will end that relationship.

During the war I watched him settling disputes between ministers of all parties . Since the abolition of the University Franchise . he has refused safe conservative seats on the ground that as a public servant he received confidences which he would not . had it ever been thought that he would ever fight on a party ticket . Are only mediocrities who have no views on anything, henceforward, to be in charge of our public inquiries? Is the stuffed shirt their idea of the just man made perfect?", with further scathing comments, " 'Ne'er look . the eagles are gone; crows and daws, crows and daws .'

        Reaction organique a L'agression et choc.

      Masson et cie.,, Paris, 1952 - Paris, Masson et cie., 1952. 205 pages. Original softcover in protective Mylar. Signed and inscribed by Laborit. Very good in green printed wraps, with a crease to the front panel and a small loss to the foot of the spine. First edition of Laborit's third book, with an inscription in his somewhat illegible hand addressed to "Monsieur le professeur." Laborit was a French physician, writer, and philosopher who eventually became a research department head at Boucicault. He was the first to study GHB, and also did pioneering research into dopamine antagonists as treatment for shock and as antipsychotics. Laborit also appeared in Resnais' 'Mon oncle d'amerique,' which draws heavily on his ideas. Henri Laborit (November 21, 1914 – May 18, 1995) was a French physician, writer and philosopher. Laborit was born in Hanoi, French Indochina and started his career as a neurosurgeon in the Marines and then moved on to fundamental research. He won the prestigious Albert Lasker Award for Clinical Medical Research in 1957. Laborit later became a research head at Boucicault Hospital in Paris. His interests included psychotropic drugs, eutonology, and memory. He pioneered the use of dopamine antagonists to reduce shock in injured soldiers. His observation that people treated with these drugs showed reduced interest in their surroundings led to their later use as antipsychotics. He was also the first researcher to study GHB, in the early 1960s. He hoped that it would be an orally bioavailable precursor to the neurotransmitter GABA, but it proved to have other uses and was later discovered as an endogenous neurotransmitter. He appeared in the 1980 Alain Resnais film Mon oncle d'Amérique, which is built around the ideas of Laborit and uses the stories of three people to illustrate theories deriving from evolutionary psychology regarding the relationship of self and society. This movie includes short sequences of rat experiments that are used to illustrate the behaviors of some of the characters in different situations (such as inhibition in the action). The French-born American market researcher Clotaire Rapaille considered Laborit to be an important influence in his work. The 1991 Italian film Mediterraneo begins with a quote from Laborit which, translated, means "In times like these, escape is the only way to stay alive and keep dreaming." (Wikipedia) Sprache: Francais Signed and inscribed by Laborit. Very good in green printed wraps, with a crease to the front panel and a small loss to the foot of the spine.

        Mr. President [Signed by President Truman]

      New York: Farrar, Straus, and Young, 1952. Hard Cover. Very good in a good dust jacket. Hard Cover. First Edition. INSCRIBED BY PRESIDENT TRUMAN "To Jane Lingo, a lovely young lady with best wishes for a long and happy life. White House. April 10, 1952. Harry Truman." In a project to counter negative public opinion polls, Truman allowed a sympathetic journalist (Hillman) a close-in view of the president in action. Hillman was a noted journalist, foreign correspondent, and radio reporter. Laid in on a 3x5 card is a note in a young hand signed by Jane Lingo asking the President to sign the book for her. Jane Lingo was a friend of Margaret Truman and is mentioned in Hillman&#39;;s book as having spent a night in the Lincoln bedroom on a sleepover (page 116). The Lingos were family friends of the Trumans. Benjamin Harrison Lingo was a commander in the Navy and his wife Marie was the director of the Washington USO. Their daughter Jane later became the first woman admitted into the National Press Club. Bound in quarter beige cloth with blue cloth covered boards and gilt title label to spine. Toning to edges of boards and small bump along bottom edge of rear board. Clean, bright interior with errata slip laid-in. In a blue dust jacket with red title to spine and front panel.

        Invisible Man

      New York: Random House, 1952. First printing. Hardcover. 439 pp. Octavo [21.5 cm] Two-toned cloth. Very good/Very good. Extremities rubbed (more so at corners). Minor rubbing to corners of jacket. Signed. Author&#39;s signature on a card laid in. Classic American novel, influenced by the Harlem Renaissance. Ellison was introduced to Richard Wright during his first trip to New York. Wright encouraged Ellison to abandon his dreams of a musical career (at the time he was studying music at the Tuskegee Institute), and instead focus his attention on writing. Ellison soon made a name for himself with the East Coast intelligentsia through his shorter works being published by the literary journals of the day. The book deals with the universal themes of man&#39;s search for identity and place in society. The book won the National Book Award for 1953.

        Groups without small subgroups; Small subgroups of finite-dimensional groups.

      University Press, Princeton 1952 - First edition of these two papers which together constitute the solution of Hilbert&#146;s Fifth Problem. Original wrappers, signed by Montgomery. In 1900 David Hilbert put forward a list of 23 unsolved problems he viewed as important in guiding the development of mathematics in the next century. His fifth problem was concerned with the various different notions of a group. The idea of a group itself had been put forward in the early nineteenth century by Cauchy and Galois, but the groups they considered were generally &#145;discrete&#146;, having only a finite number of elements. Towards the end of the century the Norwegian mathematician Sophus Lie studied groups with continuous parameters, and these &#145;Lie groups&#146; have proved to be of great importance both in mathematics and physics in the twentieth century. In a Lie group the operation of group multiplication is &#145;differentiable&#146;, but one can also ask only that this operation is &#145;continuous&#146; leading to the notion of a &#145;topological group&#146;. Every Lie group is a topological group, but not every topological group is a Lie group. In the fifth of his problems, Hilbert asked for a topological characterization of Lie groups. Later mathematicians have interpreted Hilbert&#146;s question as follows: is every topological group that is &#145;locally&#146; the same as a Euclidean space automatically a Lie group (every Lie group is by definition locally Euclidean)? This question was answered in the affirmative in the two papers offered. The crucial idea turned out to be that of a topological group with &#145;no small subgroups&#146;: this means that some neighbourhood of the identity element of the group should contain no subgroup with more than one element (it is easy to show that Lie groups have no small subgroups). In the first paper, Gleason showed that a topological group with no small subgroups is a Lie group. In the second paper, Montgomery and Zippin showed that a topological group that is locally Euclidean has no small subgroups. Putting these two results together therefore gives an affirmative answer to Hilbert&#146;s question. Deane Montgomery (1909-92) attended Hamline University, Saint Paul, Minnesota, and then went to the University of Iowa, where he obtained his Ph.D. in 1933 with a thesis on point-set topology. He then went to Harvard University, where he was a National Research Council fellow in 1933-4. The following year, he was again an NRC fellow, this time at Princeton University, where the Institute for Advanced Study had just been established. In 1935, Montgomery was appointed assistant professor at Smith College. He was promoted to associate professor in 1938 and then full professor in 1941. In 1941-2, he was a Guggenheim fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study. After a year back at Smith in 1942, he returned to Princeton in 1943 to teach Army students. He undertook other war work at that time, working with John von Neumann on numerical analysis. In 1946, he left Smith to accept an appointment as associate professor at Yale University but then returned to the Institute for Advanced Study in 1948 as a permanent member, becoming a professor in 1951. At the Institute, Montgomery was at the centre of activity in topology, running the topology seminar for many years. Early in his career, his research interests had shifted from point-set topology to topological transformation groups. In 1955, in collaboration with Zippin, Montgomery published the monograph Topological Transformation Groups, in which he gave a connected account of the work leading to the solution of Hilbert&#146;s Fifth Problem. He continued to work on transformation groups, studying with a variety of collaborators such groups and their relations to surgery theory. Montgomery remained at the Institute until 1988. Montgomery was vice-president of the American Mathematical Society in 1952-3 and president in 1961-2. In 1988, he received the Leroy P. Steele Prize for Lifetime Achievement from the American Mathematical Society for his lasting impact on mathe [Attributes: First Edition]
