Hughes, Langston
Henry Holt and Company, New York. First edition of Hughes' second major collection of short stories. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, "Inscribed especially for Wolfgang, With sincere regard Langston New York March 30, 1952." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. "More than any other American writer, Langston Hughes brought African American culture and traditions into American literature" (Oxford Encyclopedia, 237). Laughing to Keep from Crying, his first collection of short fiction in nearly two decades, highlights the finest aspects of his work: his "simple, direct, style, the thirst for social criticism, the balance between satire and comedy, the basic, easily recognizable plot line, and the ability to create 'everyman' characters" (Ostram, Langston Hughes). Its title, drawn from a blues lyric, especially speaks to how "Hughes was galvanized by the music of his people, whether blues, jazz, or religious. his specific commitment to depicting and strengthening the African American heartbeat in America. gave him a place of central importance in 20th-century African American literature and American literature generally" (Gates and Higginbotham, African American Lives, 420-22). On publication, the stories in Laughing won immediate praise as "highly successful. each is the work of a 'writer' in the finest sense of the word" (New York Times).

177 (1) Seiten 8, Broschiert der Pergaminschutzumschlag etwas gebräunt , am Rücken stärker und mit Fehlstelle am Vorderdeckel, der Einband gleichfalls minimal gebräunt, Rücken gering schief gelesen, auf dem Vortitel vom Autor, der 1952, im Jahr des Escheinens dieses Romans den Literatur- Nobelpreis erhielt, gewidmet und signiert, Exemplar XLIX, Auflage auf unterschiedlichen Papieren gedruckt. François Mauriac (* 11. Oktober 1885 in Bordeaux - + 1. September 1970 in Paris) war ein französischer Schriftsteller. Der als achter französischer Autor mit dem Nobelpreis ausgezeichnete Mauriac gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Romanciers der Zeit zwischen den Weltkriegen und als wichtiger Vertreter des "renouveau catholique", einer sich um 1890 herausbildenden linkskatholischen, d.h. sich an der katholischen Soziallehre orientierenden Bewegung.

Holley, Robert H.
1952 - Unpublished Copy of a History of Machine Tabulation (1952) Holley, Robert H. "Machine Tabulation in the Census Office: 1870-1912." (Copyright 1952, photomechanical reproduction, 11x8.5 inches, (5), 44 sheets, (4) pp of index, (3) pp chronology 1846-1929, plus 14 leaves of illustrations. Includes a number of manuscript corrections to the original some of which are original, the others not. This seems to be an unpublished manuscript, even though there is a WorldCat/OCLC record, there is no listing for a library. Geoffrey D. Austrian, in his authoritative Herman Hollerith: Forgotten Giant of Information Processing (1982) refers to Holley in chapter 1 and states the source to be an "unpublished manuscript" held at the Census Records, National Archives. __+__ The Holley paper includes: "Comment on Robert H. Holley's Machine Tabulation in the Census Bureau, 1870-1912." by Leon Truesdell. 11x8.5 inches, 5 leaves (carbons?) single-space of notes and corrections by Truesdell on the Holley text. The numbers of the notes are annotated in red on the text.__+__ Plus: TLs from Truesdell to the former owner and historian and medical statistician in the biowarfare section at Fort Detrick, dated 11/8/1966. This copy differs somewhat from the OCLC copy which does not actually seem to be located in any library. The catalogued copy seems not to have the illustrations nor the chronology at the end.

Zamiatin, Evgenii (Zamyatin, Zamjatin, 1884-1937)
New York: Izdatel'stvo imeni Chekhova, 1952. Octavo (19.5 × 14.5 cm). Original printed wrappers; 200, [6] pp. About very good; rear wrapper lightly discolored; nick to lower left corner. The first appearance in print of the original Russian text of Zamyatin's only completed novel, a groundbreaking dystopian work. "We" was read as a bitter satire on Soviet society and could not be published in Russia. Completed in 1921, it was first issued in an English translation in 1924 (New York, E. P. Dutton), and later in a 1927 translation into Czech by Vaclav Koenig, who was assisted by Roman Jakobson. A severely altered version of the Russian text was printed in the Russian emigre journal "Volia Rossii" in early 1927. In order to avoid repercussions for Zamyatin, who was then still living in the Soviet Union, the editor of the journal pretended to publish a translation of a Czech literary work. Nevertheless, "the apearance of the Russian version in Volia Rossii caused an open political campaign against Zamiatin in the Soviet Union, and in 1931 he wrote a letter to Stalin requesting permission to emigrate" (Olshansky, 267).

TURING, Alan
1952. ALAN TURING'S MOST CITED WORK TURING, Alan. "THE CHEMICAL BASIS OF MORPHOGENESIS." A fine offprint from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Series B. Biological Sciences, No. 641, Vol. 137, pp. 37-72, 14 August 1952. Published for the Royal Society by the Cambridge University Press, London. Publishers offprint, with "Price Eight Shillings" on cover. Many mathematical equations and two figures in text. Quarto, 30 x 23.5 cm, publisher's brick wrappers, title information to upper wrap and spine. Fine. In this, Alan Turing's most heavily-cited work, the pre-eminent mathematician, computer scientist, and hero of WW II turned his brilliant mind towards the biological sciences, proposing a model of pattern-formation that proved seminal in not only biology but also across many scientific fields. In what would be his only published work in the field, Turing addressed a fundamental problem: morphogenesis, the process by which a single cell develops into the complex, asymmetrical organisms found in nature. Turing designed a simple family of models in which stable initial distributions of change-creating chemicals called morphogens (this work introduced the term to the scientific lexicon) become unstable in the presence of any diffusion process, such as the mixing of fluids found in living tissue. Using this elegant diffusion-reaction system, understandable with college-level mathematics, Turing explains the asymmetric pattern-formation of living organisms starting from a simple early state, providing a mathematical justification for everything from the … [Click Below for Full Description]
