        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd.,, 1956–8. 4 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spines gilt, top edges dyed red. With the dust jackets. All volumes illustrated with maps and genealogical tables. Top-stains faintly faded, very slight rubbing to ends and corners, but a bright fresh set in excellent condition, with the very lightly rubbed and marked. First editions, first impressions. Churchill's history of the two branches of the English-speaking nations – the British Empire and the United States – was begun during his "Wilderness Years" in the early 1930s, but not completed until after his retirement from the political stage in the late 1950s. The events of the Second World War, the major interruption in the writing process, had reconfirmed his belief in the "Special Relationship", "For the second time in the present century the British Empire and the United States have stood together facing the perils of war on the largest scale known among men, and since the cannons ceased to fire and the bombs to burst we have become more conscious of our common duty to the human race." Consequently he gave considerable attention to the key events of American history, around a quarter of the third volume, "The Age of Revolution", is dedicated to the American War of Independence, and a full third of the final volume, "The Great Democracies" contains a detailed study of the American Civil War.

        Dachauer Volksfest.

      . Radierung, auf festem Velin, signiert. 10,8:12,7 cm. Von 1956 ist ein Gemälde mit einem vergleichbaren Motiv bekannt, das "Dachauer Volksfest" betitelt ist.. Die Malerin und Graphikerin entstammte einer großbürgerlichen Familie und konnte sich von dieser unterstützt der künstlerischen Laufbahn widmen. Um 1900 begann sie mit dem Studium in München bei K. Becker-Gundahl (1856-1925), dann erlernte sie als Schülerin von M. Feldbauer (1869-1948) im Sommer in Dachau an der Malschule die Landschaftsmalerei und im Winter in München an der Damenakademie des Münchner Künstlerinnenvereins die Aktmalerei. Gemeinsam mit Feldbauer unternahm sie eine Studienreise nach Griesbach/Niederbayern und in die Bretagne. Weitere Studienaufenthalte folgten nach Rom und Florenz und um 1911 ein mehrmonatiger Aufenthalt in Paris an der Ecole Ranson. Vor 1914 lebte sie in Berlin, wo sie die Unterstützung v.a. durch den Kunstkritiker P. Westheim fand. Ab 1915 wohnte sie in Dachau, wo sie in den Sommermonaten die Malschule von A. Hölzel (1853-1934) besuchte; sie zählte neben Ida Kerkovius (1879-1970), Maria Langer-Schöller (1878-1969) und Else von Freytag-Lovinghoven (1874-1927) u.a. zu den sog. "Malweibern". Sie war Mitglied der "Künstlergruppe Dachau", der "Kunstvereinigung Dachau" und der Münchner "Neuen Sezession". Erfolgreich beteiligte sie sich an Ausstellungen in München, Rom, Wien, Berlin, Paris, Stuttgart und Salzburg. 1919 erhielt sie die Silb. Staatsmedaille der Stadt Salzburg. Freundschaft unterhielt sie mit A. Kubin (1877-1959) und Else Lasker-Schüler (1869-1945). 1933 wurde sie als "entartet" diffamiert, infolge wandte sie sich einem naiven Malstil und unverfänglichen Bildthemen zu.

        Observation of Antiprotons" in Physical Review 100 Issue 3 pp. 947-950, November 1, 1955; WITH "Antiproton Star Observed in Emulsion" Physical Review 101 pp. 909, January 15, 1956

      1956 FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS of the two papers that won Chamberlain and Segre the 1959 Nobel Prize for the first experimental confirmation of the antiproton, a new subatomic particle identical in every way to the proton, except that its electrical charge was negative instead of positive. Chamberlain and Segre's discovery was the culmination of a hunt whose origins go back to 1928, when British physicist Paul Dirac formulated a theory to describe the behavior of relativistic electrons in electric and magnetic fields. Dirac's equation was unique for its time because it took into consideration both Einstein's special theory of relativity and the effects of quantum physics, as proposed by Erwin Schrödinger and Werner Heisenberg, to describe the behavior of slow-moving particles. While the math worked, few physicists gave Dirac's equation much serious consideration, because it allowed particles of negative energy. From the standpoint of both physics and common sense, the energy of a particle could only be positive (Yarris, "The Golden Anniversary", Science at Berkeley Lab, 2005). A number of physicists attempted to find the antiproton, but Chamberlin and Segre were particularly clever. According to Segre, "I decided to attack the problem in two ways. One was based on the determination of the charge and mass of the particle. The other concentrated on the observation of the phenomena attendant on the annihilation of a stopping antiproton. The stopping antiproton and a proton of the target should mutually annihilate each other, and the rest mass of the two particles should transform itself in one of many possible ways into other particles such as pions. These would leave tracks in a photographic emulsion and the annihilation would thus become evident. . . ."We started the run on August 25, 1955, and after a few days of tuning up, we began observing antiproton signals. We based the identification on measurement of the velocity, momentum, and charge of a particle. The signals for velocity were oscilloscope traces recording the passage of a particle through a velocity-selecting Cerenkov detector. . . . We detected about one antiproton for every few hundred thousand other particles crossing our apparatus. . . . We decided to write a letter to the Physical Review and an article for Nature. . . . The mass-spectrograph experiment concluded on October 1, 1955, having proved the existence of the antiproton, and soon thereafter the emulsion work confirmed it" (Segrè, A Mind Always in Motion, pp. 256-57). "The antiproton also became a workhorse of experimental particle physics, as scientists [ at CERN, Fermilab, etc.] later spent decades smashing it into protons in racetrack-shaped accelerators and measuring the sprays of weird new particles that emerged, producing what seemed to be an endless stream of Nobel Prizes" (New York Times Obituary, March 2, 2006). According to physics Nobelist Stephen Weinberg: "If it had not been discovered, the foundations of physics really would have crumbled," Dr. Weinberg said. He added that the antiproton "was something like the South Pole: it's something that you know is there but you just have to get there anyway" (ibid). In: Physical Review 100 Issue 3 pp. 947-950, November 1, 1955 and Physical Review 101 pp. 909, January 15, 1956. CONDITION & DETAILS: New York: The American Physical Society.

        Zwischen den Kriegen. Blätter gegen die Zeit. Mappe mit vier Original-Ausgaben und zwei Original-Briefen Peter Rühmkorfs (1956)

      O.O. u. J. (1956). Illustrierte Original-Mappe im Format 30 x 22 cm. Innenliegend: 4 Ausgaben der hektographierten Zeitschrift "Zwischen den Kriegen - Blätter gegen die Zeit" (Nr. 19/1954; 24/195; 25/1955; 26/1956), zwei Ausgaben mit illustriertem Original-Titelblatt. Ferner enthalten ein Original-Zeitungsblatt mit einem Artikel Werner Riegels (Politik und Individuation) sowie zwei Original-Briefe Peter Rühmkorfs. In einem dieser Briefe setzt Rühmkorf gemeinsam mit der Witwe des Herausgebers, Lieselotte Riegel, die "Freunde der Zeitschrift 'Zwischen den Kriegen'" von der Einstellung der Zeitschrift, bedingt durch den Tod Werner Riegels, in Kenntnis. Das Schreiben enthält eine Würdigung des politisch-literarischen Werkes Riegels und des kleinen Autorenkreises der Zeitschrift und ist daher ein aufschlußreiches literaturgeschischichtliches Dokument. Mit Beiträgen von Richard Anders, Leo Doletzki, Richard Huelsenbeck, Hans Henny Jahnn, Leslie Meier, Werner Riegel, Peter Rühmkorf, Scharbock, Kurt Hiller, Lothar Leu, Sikorra, Carl Eintsein, H. C. Harries. Die Zeitschrift "Zwischen den Kriegen" wurde von Riegel zwischen 1952 und 1956 in sehr kleiner Auflage (um 100) herausgegeben. Original-Ausgabe sind heute allenfalls noch sehr vereinzelt auffindbar. Wie selten Exemplare der Zeitschrift bereits kurz nach ihrer Einstellung geworden waren, zeigt eine Mitteilung Rühmkorfs (beiliegender Brief) an Werner Kobenstein vom 1. Oktober 1956: "Wir haben leider nur noch vier Nummern unserer Zeitschrift für Sie heraussuchen können, da alles andere total vergriffen ist. Ich würde selbst gern noch einige alte Nummern zurückkaufen wenn sie mir nur errreichbar wären." Die Kieler Universitätsbibliothek zeigt zurzeit aus Anlaß des ersten Todestages Peter Rühmkorfs eine Ausstellung, in der der politisch-literarische Aktivismus der Gruppe um Riegel und Rühmkorf in den frühen fünfziger Jahren und die Herausgabe der Zeitschrift "Zwischen den Kriegen" ausgiebig gewürdigt werden.. Die Mappe und die innenliegenden Dokumente in sehr gutem Zustand, allenfalls einige Seiten etwas eselsohrig. Einige wenige Randanstreichungen im Text.

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples

      London: Cassell, 1956-58., 1956. A superb set of FIRST EDITIONS. 4 volumes. 8vo. Finely bound in recent blue half morocco, gilt titles and decoration to spines with raised bands, blue cloth boards; top edges gilt. Published shortly after Sir Winston Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, this is the author's last great work, only available some twenty years after he wrote the first draft, which then lay dormant whilst he attended to National and Parliamentary matters. In his preface he remarks that the book 'slumbered peacefully, until 1956, 'when things had quietened down'. Reading reports of the last decade of his life, one is struck by the central interest his history represented in his final years, and how rapidly he sank into decline and depression after the final volume was published.

        (1) Three models for the description of language. (2) The zero error capacity of a noisy channel. (3) The logic theory machine

      1956. (1) Chomsky, Noam (1928- ). Three models for the description of language. In IRE Transactions on Information Theory IT-2 (September 1956): 113-24. (2) Shannon, Claude E. The zero error capacity of a noisy channel. In IRE Transactions on Information Theory IT-2 (September 1956): 8-19. (3) Newell, Allen & H. A. Simon. The logic theory machine. In IRE Transactions on Information Theory IT-2 (September 1956): 61-79. Whole number. Original green printed wrappers. 278 x 218 mm. <p> (1) First edition. Chomsky&#39;s revolutionary investigations of the underlying structures of natural languages were first presented in the above paper, read at a symposium on information theory held at MIT a few months before the publication of his Syntactic Structures . In the paper Chomsky introduced two key concepts, the first being "Chomsky&#39;s hierarchy" of syntactic forms, which has been widely applied in the construction of artificial computer languages.</p><p> "The Chomsky hierarchy places regular (or linear) languages as a subset of the context-free languages, which in turn are embedded within the set of context-sensitive languages also finally residing in the set of unrestricted or recursively enumerable languages. By defining syntax as the set of rules that define the spatial relationships between the symbols of a language, various levels of language can be also described as one-dimensional (regular or linear), two-dimensional (context-free), three-dimensional (context sensitive) and multi-dimensional (unrestricted) relationships. From these beginnings, Chomsky might well be described as the &#39;father of formal languages&#39;" (Lee 1995, 164).</p><p>The second concept presented here is Chomsky&#39;s transformational-generative grammar theory, which attempts to define rules that can generate the infinite number of grammatical (well-formed) sentences possible in a language, and seeks to identify rules (transformations) that govern relations between parts of a sentence, on the assumption that beneath such aspects as word order a fundamental deep structure exists. As Chomsky expressed it in his abstract of the present paper,</p><p>"We investigate several conceptions of linguistic structure to determine whether or not they can provide simple and "revealing" grammars that generate all of the sentences of English and only these. We find that no finite-state Markov process [a random process whose future probabilities are determined by its most recent values] that produces symbols with transition from state to state can serve as an English grammar. We formalize the notion of "phrase structure" and show that this gives us a method for describing language which is essentially more powerful. We study the properties of a set of grammatical transformations, showing that the grammar of English is materially simplified if phrase-structure is limited to a kernel of simple sentences from which all other sentences are constructed by repeated transformation, and that this view of linguistic structure gives a certain insight into the use and understanding of language" (p. 113). Minsky 1963, 484. Origins of Cyberspace 531. </p><p>(2) First Edition. "The zero error capacity C0 of a noisy channel is defined to be the least upper bound of rates at which it is possible to transmit information with zero probability of error. Various properties of C0 are studied; upper and lower bounds and methods of evaluation of C0 are given. Inequalities are obtained for the C0 relating to the &#39;sum&#39; and &#39;product&#39; of two given channels. The analogous problem of zero error capacity C0F for a channel with a feedback link is considered. It is shown that while the ordinary capacity of a memoryless channel with feedback is equal to that of the same channel without feedback, the zero error capacity may be greater. A solution is given to the problem of evaluating C0F" (p. 8). Shannon 1993, no. 109. Origins of Cyberspace 890.</p><p>(3) Newell and Simon&#39;s logic theory machine (LT), first described in this paper, is a computer program that discovers proofs to the theorems in symbolic logic stated in chapter 2 of Russell and Whitehead&#39;s Principia mathematica (1910-13). As Simon later wrote,</p><p>"LT was based on the system of Principia mathematica, largely because a copy of that work happened to sit in my bookshelf. There was no intention of making a contribution to symbolic logic, and the system of Principia was sufficiently outmoded by that time as to be inappropriate for that purpose. For us, the important consideration was not the precise task, but its suitability for demonstrating that a computer could discover problem solutions in a complex nonnumerical domain by heuristic search that used humanoid heuristics" (Simon 1998, 68).</p><p>Newell and Simon&#39;s machine represents "the first heuristic program fully realized on a computer, the first foray by artificial intelligence research into high-order intellectual processes" (Feigenbaum and Feldman 1963, 108). This paper is concerned exclusively with specification of the system, not with its realization in a computer. In two later papers, co-written with J. C. Shaw (Proceedings of the Western Joint Computer Conference [1957]: 218-29, 230-40), the authors described empirical explorations with the logic theory machine and reported on the Information Processing Language used to program the machine--the first list processing computer language.

        The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, 1956 8th Impression with Dustjacket

      Houghton Mifflin, Boston 1956 - 12mo - over 6?" - 7?" tall. A Near Fine copy of an extremely scarce early Hobbit. The 1956 printing, of the 2nd Edition (1951), or the 8th printing overall (1937). This copy is a stated 8th impression from the dustjacket, published by Houghton Mifflin from sheets imported from Great Britain. Stated 8th impression on front flap, not price clipped, noted as printed in Great Britain. One of probably only 1000 imported from Allen & Unwin, lacking the printing history on title verso, to help them circumvent the import restrictions and US copyright laws. The book features the original dustjacket with the Mountains and Dragon design by the author. The dustjackets has a couple of closed tears, one to the upper front panel and another to the upper rear panel, no loss noted. A bit of rubbing and wear to the top of the spine, some minor color loss at the flap folds. The boards show no soiling or marking, no shelfwear to note. The text block is clean, without foxing, a previous owners name to the front pastedown, hidden by the dustjacket flap. No other markings, no bumped corners, clean boards, virtually without fault. The dustjacket is not price clipped, and has no markings. A beautiful clean copy, one of the copies with the dark reddish brown boards stamped in blue, that are very hard to find. Contains the full color frontispiece "The Hill: Hobbiton-across-the Water", as well as the original line drawings by Tolkien. The maps are in excellent condition, with the red and black ink still showing clear and bright against the endpapers. Both maps have no foxing, no marks, or previous owners names. A highly collectable copy, hard to find in this Near Fine condition. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Near Fine / Very Good Plus.

        The exploration of Mars. Signed by von Braun

      New York: Viking Press, 1956. <p>Inscribed by Wernher von Braun </p><p>Ley, Willy (1906-69) and Wernher von Braun (1912-77). The exploration of Mars . . . with 16 paintings in color and 5 in black and white by Chesley Bonestell [1888-1986]. x, 176pp. 40 plates, included in pagination; text illustrations. New York: Viking Press, 1956. 272 x 202 mm. Original cloth, pictorial dust-jacket (slightly foxed, light edgewear). A few spots on edges, but very good to fine. Presentation Copy, inscribed by von Braun on the half-title: &#147;To Charles Wall, Jr. sincerely&#151;Wernher von Braun.&#148; </p><p>First Edition. Ley and von Braun&#146;s master blueprint for man&#146;s first exploring trip to Mars, published six years before the Soviet Union launched the first manned space flight in April 1961. Updating the Mars exploration plan von Braun had outlined in his Mars Project (1952), The Exploration of Mars &#147;detailed the architecture of a 12-man expedition and its unique lander . . . the Mars mission would center around a huge glider with a 450-foot wingspan. This vast glider-lander would carry nine explorers, in a dramatic descent to the Martian surface for a grueling land expedition lasting over a year. . . . Working out the technical details of all these scenarios made von Braun an engineering expert on space exploration well before any of it had occurred. His visions, brought grandly to life by Bonestell, stirred the American imagination. They also made von Braun the man who could design the real rockets and space stations to carry real astronauts across the space frontier&#148; (Reynolds, Apollo: The Epic Journey to the Moon, 1963-1972, p. 29). The illustrations include 21 images by Chesley Bonestell, the &#147;father of modern space art,&#148; whose breathtakingly realistic space paintings helped inspire the American space program.</p>

        Bourbon on the Rocks

      Sag Harbor, John Steinbeck, 1956, first edition. Although this was originally titled Bourbon on the Rocks, this lot of four items relates to Steinbeck's satirical novel, The Short Reign of Pippin IV, it includes three letters from Steinbeck to Marie Fraioli as well as a carbon copy of his typed manuscript as typed by Fraioli, she had been Elia Kazan's secretary (Kazan and Steinbeck were close because of their association with both East of Eden and Viva Zapata!), Steinbeck hired her to type what he thought would be a long short story, although he also recognized that it was rapidly turning into a short novel, he asks Fraioli for one copy and two carbons (one carbon included here) in the first letter (typed on his Sag Harbor stationery, but signed "John," dated March 14, 1956), he asks how her typing was going on a play that he had also submitted to her and insists on the Bourbon on the Rocks title despite what he had earlier dictated, it is a total of seven paragraphs, 32 lines, the second letter is an autographed letter signed John, saying she had done a wonderful job on his play and hoping that she liked his "Bourbon" story, asking that a carbon go to Kazan, it has two paragraphs, a total of 10 lines, all on ruled yellow paper, the third letter appears to be a carbon (four paragraphs, 19 lines) in which he talks more about his developing story, how it (then) had 22,000 words with another 3,000 to 5,000 more to come, although he notes that it will take considerable rewriting, this letter has a typed signature of one Horace K. Manley, but it is also on his Sag Harbor stationery, together with one of her carbons of the complete (at that time) story that he called Bourbon on the Rocks, a total of 73 pages, all now housed in a custom clamshell case. Essentially fine.

        Zoo Quest to Guiana [with] Zoo Quest for a Dragon [with] Zoo Quest in Paraguay [with] Quest in Paradise [with] Zoo Quest to Madagascar [with] Quest under Capricorn. THE &#39;ZOO QUEST&#39; SERIES COMPLETE IN DUSTWRAPPERS

      Lutterworth Press, [1956-63]. 6 vols., 8vo., First Edition, with coloured frontispieces and very numerous coloured and monochrome plates throughout; original cloth (green/red/green/red/blue/green respectively), gilt backs, a very good, bright, clean set in dustwrapper. A remarkably bright, fresh set in the original colourful wrappers of Attenborough&#39;s earliest books, recording his &#39;Zoo Quest&#39; animal-foraging expeditions in many different territories. Well-illustrated and delightfully written, these early titles display much of the talent and infectious charm that has since made their author a naturalist, broadcaster and presenter of world renown. The series captures well the appeal of his first-ever television series &#39;Zoo Quest&#39; that ran on the BBC from 1954-1964. It also gave rise, incidentally (in those far-off pre-computer days), to a highly popular board game! The sequence comprises &#39;Zoo Quest to Guiana&#39; (1956), &#39;Zoo Quest for a Dragon&#39; (1957), &#39;Zoo Quest to Paraguay&#39; (1959), &#39;Quest in Paradise&#39; (1960), &#39;Zoo Quest to Madagascar&#39; (1961) and &#39;Quest under Capricorn&#39; (1963). Two omnibus volumes of extracts were published for a new generation of readers in the 1980s. COMPLETE SETS IN THIS CONDITION ARE SELDOM OFFERED FOR SALE. . Catalogs: modern firsts.
