      Paris: The Olympia Press, 1958. 1st edition, 1st printing of 5,000 copies, most of them trashed by the Brigade Mondaine (French vice police). 1st state binding (1 volume, green wrappers, titled Candy, not Lollipop). There is no way to tell if this copy was the first one printed or the last, or if it was among the first copies bound, but it was among the last copies sold before Candy was reprinted, as it has the original price "Francs: 1200" overstamped in blue ink "New Price NF 15." Tiny rubs to the edges and corners, nearly fine, still fresh, and unabused, with no tears, soiling or repairs. Candy is an outrageous reminder that high heels were invented by a woman who had been licked on the navel. It took 6 years, and a fling in the courts, to clear the way for its publication in the U.S. because the fraction of fundamentalists that were reactionary, stood quite capable of mustering potent forces in their war on joy. No loss, it's just a book, and though such people can be harmless, they can also be scary, so here's why (in the wider world), they need to be tolerated, but they also need to be kept off balance. It's not that they want you to think as they do, it's that they want you to do as they think. Near fine.

"A few copies" of Rogation were first printed thus, on a single leaf, in 1960 at the Marlborough College Press; the poem was reprinted in The Path to Peace, published later the same year (Keynes). Towards the end of his life Sassoon converted to Catholicism and was admitted to the faith at Downside Abbey. Both the poems in Lenten Illuminations, and Rogation, were written at the time of his conversion. Both works are uncommon, Lenten Illuminations traced institutionally eight times world-wide, four times in the UK and four times in the US; Rogation was not traced in the UK, and found at just two locations in the US.

        the CARPENTERED HEN and other tame creatures

      Harper & Brothers 1958 - Harper & Brothers, New York, 1958, stated first edition. John Updike was considered to be one of America’s greatest writers in the second half of the twentieth century, as evidenced by the fact that he was only one of three writers that have ever won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction twice. A prolific writer Updike published works of poetry, short stories and dozens of Novels, including the well known “Rabbit” series. The CARPENTERED HEN was both his first poetry collection and his first published book. This book, 185 pages, is in near fine condition in a near fine, price clipped first issue dust jacket, now in a protective mylar wrapper. The only flaws on the dust jacket is very light wrinkling at the top and bottom of the spine, some 8mm in each case, and a small 2mm wrinkle by the front bottom corner and a light red 10mm mark on the back. Thus, an almost flawless copy. Beautiful, bright, square it would be an indispensable item in any Updike collection. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Agatha Tyche: of nervous nets the lucky reckoners” in "Mechanization of Thought"

      Teddington, National Physical Laboratory. 1958 - The Mechanization of Thought Processes, Teddington, National Physical Laboratory. A collection of 12 preprints for papers presented at the symposium for November 27, 1958. No doubt these were distributed to attendees, to be read before the symposium began, as well as to all interested parties (I guess, though I'm not sure). Every paper here has some sort of notation on the front wrapper, usually in pencil but sometimes in ink; there are also notes in the papers themselves. VG condition overall. __+__ Richard L. Gregory, In his book Odd Perceptions (Routledge, chap 6), remember this 1958 conference as the one which “launched a new way of thinking about brain functions and mind, in terms of neural nets and computing”, and mentioning papers by Minsky, McCarthy, Rosenblatt, Uttley, Selfridge. When Gregory got to the McCulloch paper (above), he calls it “the most memorable of them all”.__+__ On the paper wrapper cover of each is printed “to be presented at a symposium on the Mechanization of Thought Processes”, National Physical Laboratory, Teddington. They would be published in Mechanization of Thought Processes: Proceedings of a Symposium Held at the National Physical Laboratory, London, Her Majesty’s Stationery Office, November, 24-27 1958, in two volumes, in 1959.__+__ There were 32 papers overall from the symposium. Note: the notations for “Paper 3-6” relates to the section/paper number of the printed version of the symposium published in two volumes in 1959.__+__ The papers: McCulloch W.S., “Agatha Tyche: of nervous nets the lucky reckoners”, 24x17.5cm, 15pp. The cover has an old vertical crease, otherwise VG. “A magnificent piece of work called Agathe Tyche: The lucky reckoners offers a fair overview of much of his philosophy with respect to ways of building reliable machinery from unsafe components. The classic by Cowan called Reliable Computation in the Presence of Noise and almost all of his later work on reliable computing was the result of McCulloch’s expansion of Von Neumann’s original concept.”--Roberto Moreno-Díaz, Neurocybernetics and Artificial Intelligence.__+__ “It took me 5 years to develop probabilistic logic sufficiently to handle two things: first, circuits which, like the respiratory mechanism, keep working despite common shift of threshold even under surgical anaesthesia. You will find these tricks described in “Agathe Tyche” “ McCulloch, in referencing von Neumann “ Probabilistic logic and synthesis of reliable organisms from unre­liable components” (1956). --McCulloch W. S., ”Reliable systems using unreliable units”, in: David McKenzie Rioch. & Edwin A. W. (eds.) Disorders of communication, 1964, p. 24.__+__ Also included: A.M. Andrews, “Learning Machines”, 24x17.5 cm 31pp., “Paper 3-6”. Very Good. H.B. Barlow, “Sensory Mechanisms, the Reduction of Redundancy, and Intelligence”, 24x17.5cm, 25pp, “Paper 4-1”. D.B. Fry and P. Denes, “An Analogue of the Speech recognition Process”, 24x17.5cm, 10pp, “Paper 3-1”. Near-fine copy, save for a note in pen on the front cover, and some extensive notes on two pages (6-7) also in pen. S. Gill, “Possibilities for the Practical Utilization of Learning Processes” 24x17.5 cm, 9pp R.L. Gregory, “Models and the Localisation of Function in the Central Nervous System”. 24X17.5cm, 13pp. “Paper 4-5”. VG P. Ladefoged, “The Perception of Speech”, 24x17.5cm, 13pp, “Paper 3-2”. Near-fine save for some notes in pen on the front cover (“evolution as a Markoff Process”. D.M. MacKay, “Operational Aspects of Intellect”, 24x17.5 cm, 16pp, “Paper 1-2”.

        White Line No 1. Photos. Digital graphic Wolfgang Schultheiß. Text John Wood. Deutsch - Englisch.

      80 Seiten mit durchgehend schwarz/weiss-Abbildungen. 4, gebundene Ausgabe, geprägtes weißes Leinen im Schuber. das Buch noch original eingeschweißt vom Verlag, eines von 30 Exemplaren der Vorzugsausgabe mit einem signierter und nummerierter Silbergelatine-Abzug ca. 20 x 30 cm von Thomas Kartsen. Dies ist das Exemplar 19/30. Thomas Karsten (* 1958 in Eisenach) ist ein berühmter deutscher Fotograf. Das freche und sehr explizite Buch von Thomas Karsten wagt den ewigen kunst- und kulturgeschichtlichen Spagat zwischen Kunst und Pornografie. Der amerikanische Professor für Geschichte der Fotografie und bekannte Poet John Wood beleuchtet das Thema in seinem Vorwort bezogen auf eine sich globalisierende und scheinbar stark freier werdende Gesellschaft. Karstens Können macht deutlich, dass ein Sujet wie Pornografie durch Poesie und Gefühl im gesellschaftlichen Kontext gebrochen werden kann. ... Dabei fungiert erotische Kunst zwar als Aphrodisiakum, aber niemals als Ersatz für Sex selbst, genausowenig wie William Blakes Prophetische Bücher ein Ersatz für eigene spirituelle Erfahrungen sind. (aus dem Vorwort) Dieser wunderschön gemachten Vorzugsausgabe ist ein signierter Originalabzug des Künstlers beigelegt: eine Rarität!
