        The Catcher Was a Spy: Professional baseball player and OSS agent, Moe Berg, engrossed and signed check to his alma mater, Princeton University

      Newark, New Jersey: , October 21, 1953 Partly Printed Check Signed ìMorris Berg,î 6.25î x 2.75î. Newark, New Jersey, October 21, 1953. Filled out by Berg, made payable to ìPrinceton University Storeî for $11.10, drawn on the National Newark & Essex Banking Co. Light bank stampings show through from verso. Tiny cancellation holes nick the ìMî of signature. Fine condition. Affixed to a mat with clear picture corners. Double matted with a 4.5î x 6.5î full-length image of 21-year-old rookie infielder Moe Berg of the 1923 Brooklyn Robins (Dodgers) at Ebbets Field, after heís thrown a baseball. He was switched to catcher in 1928. Framed to 13î x 17.5î. Morris ìMoeî Berg was a member of Princeton University's Class of 1923 where he distinguished himself as a student and as an athlete, graduating magna cum laude and earning the title of Captain of the baseball team his senior season. Shortly after graduation, on June 26, 1923, he was signed by the Brooklyn Robins as an amateur free agent and played his first major league game the next day. He was sent to the minor leagues in 1924 and 1925. From 1926-1939, Berg played, almost exclusively as a catcher, for the White Sox, Indians, Senators, and Red Sox; he was released by Boston after the 1939 season. During World War II, Moe Berg was an agent for the Office of Strategic Services, operating in Europe on projects investigating Nazi resistance in Yugoslavia and German rocket engineering. ìGeneral Wild Bill Donovan, the father of the OSS, created a bohemian intelligence operation staffed by a sparkling group of amateurs that included lawyers, professors, businessmen ... Donovan initially found Berg appealing probably because of his linguistic skills [he is reputed to have mastered 12 languages]. Berg took an oath of secrecy, was issued a revolver and a capsule of cyanide, and was given a variety of assignments in Italy, Switzerland and Sweden. Easily his most significant work was in atomic counterintelligence. The British were confident that Hitlerís scientists were nowhere near completion of an atomic bomb, but Donovan and Lt. Gen. Leslie Groves, head of the Manhattan Project ñ the U.S. bomb effort ñ wanted their own confirmation. In preparation, Berg had immersed himself in nuclear physics. This enabled him to attend a lecture given in 1944 in Zurich by the leading German atomic scientist, Werner Heisenberg. Berg had orders to kidnap or assassinate Heisenberg if a German atomic bomb project was flourishing. Masquerading as a student, Berg listened to Heisenbergís talk, which had nothing to do with weapons production. Afterward, Berg strolled about gathering information and ultimately decided to let Heisenberg be. A recently declassified memo written in 1946 by Colonel Howard Dix to recommend Berg for the Medal of Freedom says that Bergís attendance at the meeting ëyielded the most important information snatched from under the cloak of secrecy which the Germans maintained on this subject. This and other information sent back by Mr. Berg and obtained by him while under continual risk of exposure and retaliatory action, was used in guiding, the U.S. operation in this field and in determining ... the pressures to be placed upon U.S. scientists for rapid progress towards ultimate completion of the Manhattan Project.íî In 1994, Dawidoffís biography of Berg was published by Pantheon Books, ìThe Catcher Was a Spy: The Mysterious Life of Moe Berg.î

Révulsé par le bombardement d'Haïphong par les Français, après l'échec de sa demande de démission, ce marin d'obédience communiste avait en effet essayé de convaincre d'autres marins de s'opposer au conflit, mais la disproportion de la peine a particulièrement choqué nombre de citoyens & de personnalités, de sorte qu'il est devenu le symbole de la lutte du peuple français contre " la sale Guerre d'Indochine ". Dos bien carré sans pliures de lecture. Superbe état général, proche du parfait. On joint le papillon publicitaire pour la revue " Les Temps Modernes " dirigée par Sartre, ansi que le dépliant publicitaire de 4 pages au format 12 x 14,2 cm, édité par Pierre Seghers pour la parution du livre consacré à J.P.

        Faster Than Thought

      London: Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons, Ltd.,, 1953. London: Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons, Ltd.,, 1953. A Symposium on Digital Computing Machines. Edited by B. V. Bowden. With a Foreword by the Earl of Halsbury. Octavo. Original cream cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Underlining in pencil and red ink to foreword and preface. Tail of spine bumped affecting the endpapers and contents, very slight dampstain to head of spine, corners bumped, vertical crease to preliminary matter and first 20 pages of text, paperclip mark to plate of Charles Babbage. A good copy in the rubbed, chipped, and torn jacket with internal repairs as well as external restoration. First edition, first impression of "the most widely read early English introduction to electronic computing" (Origins of Cyberspace 504), with a chapter on computer chess that was one of Alan Turing's final published pieces. Inscribed by the author to another computer researcher on the front pastedown, "All best wishes, Vivien Bowden, 4 September 1964". With the recipient's ownership inscription, "Wm. Howard Gannon 8/2/54 Personal Property". Scarce signed. The author, Bertram Vivian Bowden (1910–1989) was educated as a physicist at Cambridge before joining the Ministry of Defence Telecommunications Research Establishment where, during the Second World War, he investigated radar and made advances that remained vital to the industry more than twenty years later. Between 1950 and 1953 he worked for the Ferranti corporation, a computer company that specialised in machines for defense and electrical systems, and which introduced the first commercially available computer, the Ferranti Mark I, in 1951. Bowden "was particularly effective in explaining, with uncanny prescience, the dramatic effect that the digital computer was destined to have" (ODNB). In the preface he describes some of the tasks, such as engineering calculations, that computers will soon take over from humans, and writes, "It seems probable that we shall have a second Industrial Revolution on our hands before long… In the next revolution machines may replace mens' brains and relieve them of much of the drudgery and boredom which is now the lot of so many white collar workers". His thoughts on this future were collected in the present volume, together with pieces on the history of computing and case studies of contemporary "computing machines" in Britain and America. The extensive section on future applications for computers includes articles on crystallography, meteorology, ballistics, engineering, government calculations, business and commerce, astronomy, and games – notably a chapter on teaching computers to play chess, to which Alan Turing was a major contributor. The algorithm that Turing describes was ahead of its time, and was tested against grandmaster Gary Kasparov during celebrations of Turing's 100th birthday in June 2012. Though he beat the computer in sixteen moves, Kasparov described Turing's programme as "an incredible achievement… Although it's only thinking two moves ahead, I would have thought it would give the amateur player some serious problems. Alan Turing is one of the very few people about who you could say that if he had lived longer the world would be a different place" (Manchester University website).

        Buraimi, a Saudi Arabian Emirate.

      Baghdad, 1953 CE - 1373 AH.. 80 pp. With three printed portrait frontispieces and a full-page map of the Arabian Gulf, all in the pagination. Original printed wrappers, stapled. 8vo.. Only edition of this intriguing and early publication on the so-called Buraimi dispute that involved Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Oman. The Buraimi Oasis had been claimed by the powerful Sultan of Muscat as early as 1819, while two no less powerful personages in the north of the Peninsula, the Sheiks of Abu Dhabi and of Sharjah, both asserted their own suzerainty, and from 1869 on, the Sultan of Muscat and Sheikh Zayed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi jointly ruled the Oasis. While the Saudis did not claim Buraimi during the border negotiations of 1935 and Zayed Al Nahyan emerged as governor of the region, the dispute flared up once more in the 1950s when the Sultanate of Muscat and Oman quarrelled with the newly-established Kingdom of Saudi-Arabia over the possession of Buraimi. Ultimately, the Sultan managed to fend off such claims with the support of the British government. The present publication, printed in the Kingdom of Iraq at a point when the dispute was steering toward a climax, recounts the history of the conflict, assuming a pro-Saudi (and thus, anti-British) stance; tellingly, it includes portraits of HRH Abd al-Aziz ibn Saud and his sons, HRH Saud ibn Abd al-Aziz and HRH Faisal ibn Abd al-Aziz. - Evenly browned throughout; minor edge chipping and slight discolouration from staples. Extremely rare.

        Casino Royale

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1953. London: Jonathan Cape,, 1953. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine in red, heart device to front cover in red, bottom edges untrimmed. With the illustrated dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box. Very slight foxing to edges, prelims and endmatter, small professional repair to rear inner hinge. An excellent copy in a fine price-clipped jacket with very light tanning along top of flaps and rear cover. First edition, first impression in an exceptionally bright first impression jacket. Fleming (1908-1964) finished Casino Royale over the period of two months in early 1952, while at Goldeneye, his "tropical hideaway on Jamaica's north shore" (Gilbert, p. 16). According to Gilbert, Fleming finished the novel quickly because "he was a seasoned journalist", but also because many plot elements sprung from either Fleming's imagination or his memories of wartime adventures. Published in April 1953, the book was a success and Fleming would thereafter use "his Caribbean holidays to write a James Bond story every year until his premature death in 1964" (ODNB).

        A WRITER'S DIARY. Being Extracts From The Diary Of Virginia Woolf. With Wrap-Around-band

      London: The Hogarth Press, 1953 Woolf, Virginia. A WRITER'S DIARY. First Edition. 8vo., 312pp. Edited, with a preface by Leonard Woolf. A fine copy in orange cloth, gilt titles to the spine, in like fine dustwrapper with the very uncommon wrap-around-band. Revealing glimpses of Virginia Woolf & essential for an understanding of her writing methods & how her thought process influenced her life & relationships. It was not until Woolf's full Diaries were published that they were recognized, with her letters as companion, as her literary masterpieces. Virginia Woolf kept her diaries from 1915 until her death in 1941. Her husband, Leonard Woolf, notes in his preface that her "diary gives for 27 years a consecutive record of what she did, of the people whom she saw and particularly of what she thought about those people, about herself, about life, and about the books she was writing or hoped to write." Leonard Woolf has here excerpted his wife's diaries from 1918 through 1941, including every reference his wife's diaries made to her own writing. The resulting book "throws light upon Virginia Woolf's intentions, objects, and methods as a writer. It gives an unusual psychological picture of artistic production from within." Kirkpatrick & Clarke A31a. Excellent example . First Edition. Illus. by Vanessa Bell.
