        On Distributed Communications. RAND Memoranda: RM-3097-PR to 3767

      First editions, first printings of the complete set of technical memoranda that formed the basis for ARPANET, the precursor to today's internet. Well-represented institutionally, but rare in commerce, with no copies in auction records and not in Hook & Norman's Origins of Cyberspace. This set has been bound together, with the owner N. R. Levandosky's name in gilt on the spine. We cannot locate Levandosky in the historical record, but RAND memoranda were mainly distributed to the military, industry, and academia, so it seems likely that he worked in the emerging fields of computer engineering or operations research, possibly for the military or a connected industry. A copy of another text owned by him, Electrical Communications Systems Engineering by the Departments of the Army and Air Force (1958) was recently for sale online in New Mexico. During the early 1960s computer engineer Paul Baran (1926-2011) was working for the RAND corporation, whose major client, the US Air Force, was interested in developing more reliable communication networks. As Baran himself explained in a 1990 interview for the Charles Babbage Institute, "This period was the height of the Cold War. Both the US and USSR were building hair trigger nuclear ballistic missile systems. The early missile control systems were not physically robust. Thus, there was a dangerous temptation for either party to misunderstand the actions of the other and fire first. if the strategic command and control systems could be more survivable, then the country's retaliatory capability could better allow it to withstand an attack and still function; a more stable position. But, this was not a wholly feasible concept because long distance communications networks at that time were extremely vulnerable and not able to survive attack. That was the issue. Here a most dangerous situation was created by the lack of a survivable communication system. That. in brief, was my interest in the challenge of building more survivable networks" (University of Minnesota website). At the time, the few computer networks that existed were centralised, but Baran's solution was to create a network of distributed nodes so that the system relied on no single node to function. Concurrently, he also developed packet switching, in which information is divided into small portions to be sent across the network and then reconstituted at its destination. Baran's work directly influenced the development of the Defense Department's ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network), one of the earliest packet switching networks and the forerunner of the modern internet. "In 1969 this 'distributed' concept was given its first large-scale test, with the first node installed at UCLA, and the seventh node at RAND in Santa Monica. Funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency and called ARPANET, it was intended for scientists and researchers who wanted to share one another's computers remotely. Within two years, however, the network's users had turned it into something unforeseen: a high-speed, electronic post office for exchanging everything from technical to personal information" (Paul Baran and the Origins of the Internet, RAND Corp. website). Santa Monica, CA: The RAND Corporation, August, 1964. 11 volumes in 1, quarto (275 x 210 mm). Contemporary red library cloth, titles and owner's name to spine gilt, cream endpapers. A few small marks to the cloth, contents fresh. Excellent condition.

        Dart Festschrift. Presented to Professor Raymond A. Dart by his Appreciative Past and Present Students [cover title]. In Honour of Professor Raymond Arthur Dart on his Retirement from the Chair of Anatomy of the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. A Tribute by his Distinguished Colleagues from Many Corners of the Earth. Presented to Professor Dart by his Past and Present Students

      Johannesburg, Medical School, University of the Witwatersrand, 1958. Small quarto, [iv], 83-155 pages with a frontispiece portrait and some illustrations and figures. Limp full leather slightly rubbed; essentially a fine copy. Queensland-born Raymond Arthur Dart (1893-1988), anatomist and anthropologist, achieved lasting fame soon after his appointment in January 1923 as professor of anatomy, University of the Witwatersrand, in Johannesburg. 'In November 1924 Dart was handed a fossil skull that had recently been discovered at Taungs (later Taung), 100 miles ... north of Kimberley. He extracted the fossil from the hard matrix and found that the skull was that of a child possessing a mixture of apish and human features. The child had held its head on a nearly vertical spinal column; its teeth, especially its little canines, were human-like. Although the brain was small, like that of an ape, its form seemed to be hominoid. Thinking that its blend of traits might characterise the supposed missing link between humans and non-human animals on the old notion of a chain of being, Dart named the species "Australopithecus africanus" and published his findings in "Nature" in February 1925. For over twenty years most scholars rejected Dart's claims. Critics asserted that the Taung child was on the wrong continent, was too young at death to make predictions about its likely adult form, and belonged to a geological epoch too recent.... [But in] time more fossilised hominid remains were found in Africa, and Dart's theory was generally accepted. The palaeontologist Robert Broom considered that Dart had made "one of the greatest discoveries in the world's history"' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). The Festschrift originally appeared in the Medical School's journal The Leech (Volume XXVIII, Numbers 3, 4 and 5, November 1958, the Raymond A. Dart Commemorative Number). This is one of a specially bound edition limited to 100 copies; this is Number 9, and it is signed and dated (9 January 1959) by Professor Dart. Loosely inserted is the 'With the Compliments' slip of the Editorial Board of The Leech. This copy comes from the collection of Professor Andrew Abbie, one of the contributors ('The Original Australians' [pages 120-30, with 12 illustrations from photographs]); his large bookplate is on the front pastedown.

        Chester Nimitz ALS and speech copy, "I am an obtuse admiral ... prepare for WWIII!!

      Berkeley, CA, June 11, 1958. 8" x 10.5". "Single page ALS, 8"" x 10.5"", scripted recto and verso, on Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, Berkeley, CA letterhead. Dated ""June 11, 1958"", and signed by Nimitz as ""CW Nimitz"" . Near fine with small staple holes to upper left corner. Accompanied by a single typed carbon copy of Gros's response, near fine with light creasing and a staple hole. For reference, the lot is accompanied by a photocopy of the nine page single sided ""prepared speech statement"", which includes lengthy autographed annotations with an additional full page of autographed notes by Nimitz.Nimitz penned letter to Gros (possibly Vice President, public relations, for Pacific Gas and Electric Co., often lectured on international relations, according to Online Archive of California), references his prepared statement:""I enclose a copy of the statement which I had prepared for Vinson's Committee but did not use because I was not called. However, I may be called before the Senate Armed Forces Committee, and if so, will use it. I am grateful that you will hold the paper secure. You are free - however - to help yourself to such of the ideas expressed - if you believe in them....Aunt Catherine joins me in warmest regards..."" The accompanying second letter shows Gros commenting on Nimitz' speech, Gros says: ""I do hope you are called before the Senate Armed Forces Committee and I expressed that same hope to Tom Gates during the course of a pleasant visit I had with him in Washington last week.... I am utterly shocked at the hint thrown out by the Secretary of Defense yesterday that they might sack Arleigh Burke because of his testimony. is the very negation of the democratic process to inhibit a professional officer's testifying to his honest convictions when called before a Congressional Committee...""The two were referencing Nimitz's prepared speech he planned to give before one of the Armed Forces Committees, which is included with this group as a photocopy. His speech shows a fascinating viewpoint of the armed services and the tactical and strategic balance to prepare for a future war. Nimitz gives his opinion that he believes all armed services should remain independent. ""I am one of those 'obtuse admirals' who believes that if we should unfortunately engage in World War III in the predictable future - say the next five or ten years - we will use many of the methods and in considerable part the same weapons - greatly improved of course - that we used in World War II. ...It has always been my belief that each service should have the tools it needs to carry out its major function - even though other services use similar tools. ...My great concern is that during all the experimentation now going on with missiles of all kinds, none of which have as yet proved themselves at long (over 200-300 miles ) range, we will neglect the proved weapons of World War II. While there have been great advances, there have been only a few changes. Even the atom powered submarine has only a few improvements. It is a steam turbine driven ship with a reactor furnishing heat instead of a boiler. The British had steam driven subs in World War I, and long before that the Turks had a small steam driven sub...""A fantastic set which provides insight into this esteemed Fleet Admiral."

        Moroccan Moods. Twelve gouache paintings ... reproduced by hand. Text by Bernard Guillerez.

      [Casablanca, Laski Bros. for Art Editions Albert Monnet, [December 15th, 1958]. Large folio. Original illustrated wrappers in board wrappers, spine lettered in red, within the original slip case; ff. [iv, the initial blank], 14, 12 colour silkscreen plates; slipcase a little worn and with a few repairs, otherwise a fine copy. First edition in English, one of 500 copies printed, 'presented by Gordon Woodroffe Morocco to R. E. Brook Esq.' in additional print on the limitation page. Carriat-Roland was a poster designer and painter who 'commuted' between Morocco and Paris. These reproductions of gouaches give impressions of Moroccan life, towns and ports. The editors meticulously describe the silkscreen printing process applied here, which is perfectly suited to reproduce the pastose character of gouache paintings. 'This is the first time that this type of work on such a scale has been undertaken successfully in Morocco,' they claim in the preliminaries. - Gordon Woodroffe, who presented this (or all?) copies was a leading manufacturer and shipping company owner in Morocco.

Original Hardcover (red cloth with gilt or black lettering on spine). Good to very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Only Supplement Volume 12 in very poor condition. From the library of irish independent politician and solicitor Jasper Travers Wolfe of Skibbereen. The Digest, formerly published as The English and Empire Digest, is a digest of case law. It is the "major modern work" of this kind. Its coverage is "wide" but incomplete, and it can be "complicated to use" if the user does not understand how the editions overlap. In 1994, it included cases from England and Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and other parts of the Commonwealth, and from the European Communities. More than half a million cases from more than a thousand series of law reports were summarised. The work also serves as a citator and is "valuable" because of this. The English and Empire Digest was published in 49 volumes from 1919 to 1932. This was directed by the Earl of Halsbury and Sir Thomas Willes Chitty. The "Blue Band" Replacement Edition was published in 56 volumes from 1950 to 1970. Publication of the third edition, or "Green Band" Reissue Edition, began in 1971. In 1981, its name was changed to The Digest. It contains the fullest listing of the case law of the United Kingdom, including almost all reported decisions from the sixteenth century. (Wikipedia)
