        A Completeness Theorem in Modal Logic" (pp. 1-14) WITH Abstracts of "Distinguished Constituents" (pp. 323) "Semantical Analysis of Modal Logic" (pp. 323-324) WITH "The Problem of Entailment" (p. 324) in The Journal of Symbolic Logic Vol. 24, Issues Number 1-4, 1959

      BOUND FIRST EDITION OF SAUL KRIPKE'S SEMINAL FIRST PAPER ON MODAL LOGIC, "A Completeness Theorem in Modal Logic". The paper presents Kripke's important ideas on the semantics of modal logic, or the logic of modal notions like necessity and possibility. Included are all 4 journal issues for 1959, one of which is inclusive of abstracts of 3 other papers Kripke sent to the Journal.  Kripke was "universally hailed" for "A Completeness Theorem in Modal Logic" (this paper) In it, he both proves the formal completeness of modal logic (supplemented by first-order quantifiers and the sign of equality) and "create[s] a semantics now called Kripke semantics" (Hurley, Logic 217). Kripke semantics "is a formals semantics for non-classical logic systems… first conceived for modal logics, and later adapted to intuitionistic logic and other non-classical systems. The discovery of Kripke semantics was a breakthrough in the theory of non-classical logics, because the model theory of such logics was almost non-existent before Kripke" (Wikipedia).  As the story goes, in 1959 and at the age of seventeen, Kripke wrote his completeness theorem in modal logic at age 17; he mailed the paper to the journal and it was sent out for comments, to, among a number of others, the head of the Mathematics at Harvard. This person then wrote Kripke urging him to apply for a job at Harvard. The reply he received read: "My mother said that I should finish high school and go to college first" (ibid).  Kripke's initial intuitive idea was that a proposition is necessary if and only if it is true in all possible worlds. Kripke's paper begins: "The present paper attempts to state and prove a completeness theorem for the system S5, supplemented by first-order quantifiers and the sign of equality" (Kripke, JSL, 24,1, 1959, 1). He then notes: "The basis of the informal analysis which motivated these definitions is that a proposition is necessary if and only if it is true in all "possible worlds". (It is not necessary for our present purposes to analyze the concept of a "possible world" any further.) ... In modal logic, however, we wish to know not only about the 6 real world but about other conceivable worlds" (ibid).  Shortly, Kripke then wrote "In trying to construct a definition of universal logical validity, it seems plausible to assume not only that the universe of discourse may contain an arbitrary number of elements and that predicates may be assigned any given interpretations in the actual world, but also that any combination of possible worlds may be associated with the real world with respect to some group of predicates. In other words, it is plausible to assume that no further restrictions need be placed on D, G, and K, except the standard one that D be non-empty. This assumption leads directly to our definition of universal validity." (ibid). The December issue of the journal is also bound in; it contains abstracts of the other Kripke papers received the Journal in 1959: "Distinguished Constituents", "Semantical Analysis of Modal Logic", "The Problem of Entailment". Also included are the two other issues of The Journal of Symbolic Logic from 1959, this to make a complete set. Saul Kripke (1940- ) is an American philosopher and logician who was awarded the Rolf Schock Prize in Logic and Philosophy in 2001. He is best known for five major contributions to philosophy beginning with this paper, the starting point for Kripke Semantics. In 1962 Kripke graduated from Harvard University… Now associated with Princeton, additional areas of note include his contributions to set theory, his theory of truth and his interpretation of Wittgenstein's work. CONDITION & DETAILS: Princeton: Association for Symbolic Logic, 1959. 4to. 9.75 x 7. Light institutional stamps on text block and one small stamp at the foot of the front pastedown. Tightly bound in black cloth, gilt-lettered at the spine. Bright and clean inside and out. Near fine condition.

        The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner.

      London W. H. Allen 1959 - First edition, 8vo., publisher's grey cloth, usual age toning, pictorial dust-jacket printed in mustard-yellow and black, a little rubbed at extremities, rear panel a little dust-soiled, otherwise very good. The first collection of short stories by Alan Sillitoe (1929-2010), The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner is most notable for the work that lends the collection its name. Recounting in the first person the tale of a boy sent to a Borstal for theft, the unrepentant narrator's monologues are used to express Sillitoe's views on the class antagonism between upper-class 'In-law blokes like you and them' and the masses of 'Out-law blokes like me and us' (p. 10), justifying crime as a form of rebellion against an oppressive system. When adapted for the well-regarded film version of 1962, the censor was distressed at the work's perceived 'blatant and very trying communist propaganda', but nonetheless the story was acclaimed by contemporaries, winning the Hawthornden Prize for 1959, and is now considered to be a significant product of social unrest in the aftermath of the Second World War.[1] [1] Quoted in Helen Small, 'The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner in Browning, Sillitoe, and Murakami', in Essays in Criticism, Volume 60, Issue 2, 1 April 2010, pp. 129–147.

        Getypte brief aan 'Lieve Jongens [= Jan Wolkers en Annemarie Nauta]'.

      27,4 x 20,9 cm. Op briefpapier van 'Tirade'. Eén blad. Recto en verso. Gesigneerd 'Gerard' en gedateerd 'Amsterdam, 22 oktober 1959'. 71 regels tekst. Met een originele envelop [poststempel: '15 VII 1959' - zie de noot].l Fabuleus verslag van een mislukte ontmoeting, naar aanleiding van het lenen van een leunstoel. 'Ik moest toch in de buurt zijn en ben met mijn zieke lichaam helemaal door de stad gelopen met de stoel maar later dacht ik dat jullie vast kwaad moeten zijn geweest want vermoedelijk zijn jullie door mijn bonzen gestoord in de geslachtsdaad, dat moet haast wel, want het was er volstrekt het weer voor'. Vervolgens uitgebreid over eerder die middag aangeschafte onderdelen ('1 verloopstukje, 1 T-stukje, 1 slangkop, 1 3/8 nippel, 1 kraanplaat') voor een aan te leggen waterleiding. Toen om half vier 's middags bleek dat Wolkers niet thuis was, heeft Reve de stoel afgegeven aan de voordeur van een winkel, 'uit vrees dat hij door de vuilnisman plotseling meegenomen zou worden'.Tevens over de schoonheid van Maria: 'Er ontbreekt wel iets, maar ze is verblindend mooi. Waarschijnlijk is ze te efficiënt en te beheerst, en maakt ze een evenwichtige indruk terwijl het een ziedende pot waanzin is [...] Annemarie is veel meer een echte vrouw en heeft veel meer charme - het is net wat je hebben wilt'. Voorts uitvoerig over een bezoek aan Elseviers Weekblad: 'Men liet mij kennis maken met Bantzinger, ook zijn gepoetste en gelikte joker [...] Ik legde uit, althans probeerde aan de half kale Mr. J.H.M.G. Barkey Wolf uit te leggen, dat de dood eigenlijk het enige belangrijke onderwerp in de literatuur is [...] de bereisde Bantzinger begon toen over stierengevechten, die ik zei misselijk te vinden, omdat de uitslag vast stond. Eerlijke vrijwillige tweegevechten tussen mensen zou ik appreciëren, vooral als het beide mooie jongens waren en ik de overwinnaar ten geschenke zou krijgen. (Deze laatste beide voorwaarden verzweeg ik.)' Laatste zin: 'Nu ga ik de brief posten. Ik ben uw broeder in Jezus Christus onzen Verlosser en Zaligmaker'.Vier dagen na deze mislukte ontmoeting troffen de jonge schrijvers elkaar alsnog: op de vierendertigste verjaardag van Wolkers, waarbij de stoel van Reve ongetwijfeld van pas kwam. Gerard Reve en Jan Wolkers leerden elkaar kennen toen Wolkers in februari 1959 het verhaal 'Het Tillenbeest' instuurde voor Tirade. Het eerste schriftelijke contact dateert van 6 juni 1959. Deze geheel ongepubliceerde brief - de vierde of vijfde die Reve aan Wolkers zond - wordt bewaard in de envelop van de tweede brief, gedateerd 15 juli 1959. Zie voor achtergronden: 'Het was een heel knappe jongen, dat moet je niet vergeten. Interview met Jan Wolkers door Diederik van Vleuten'. Pagina 9-21 in: Het volle leven. Herinneringen aan Gerard Reve (Amsterdam 2006).

        Khirbat al Mafjar.

      Oxford: at the Clarendon Press,, 1959. An Arabian Mansion in the Jordan Valley. With a Contribution by Dr. Oleg Grabar. Large quarto. Original brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Colour frontispiece depicting the famous lion-gazelle floor mosaic, Over 250 sketches and diagrams to the text, 9 diagrammatic plates of which 8 folding, 50 photographic plates of which 2 in colour. A few very faint, almost imperceptible markings to front board, mild smudging to edges, faint toning to text-block and margins of photographic plates, the 6 diagrammatic plates at the rear with a few spots and nicks and a faint paperclip indentation to fore edge, short closed tear to stub of last plate. A very good copy in the dust jacket with a toned spine panel, a few spots, shallow chips and closed tears, and 2 old tape repairs to the front panel verso. First edition. Hamilton's monumental study of the 8th-century Umayyad palace of Khirbat al-Mafjar, near Jericho, is universally acknowledged as "an indispensable source for the study of the earliest Islamic art and architecture … [and] a masterpiece of reconstruction in three dimensions of earthquake debris in four media — stone, plaster, mosaic, and paint" (Moorey, "Robert William Hamilton, 1905-1995", in Proceedings of the British Academy, 94, p. 503). Hamilton was director of antiquities in mandatory Palestine from 1938 to 1948, and director of the Ashmolean between 1962 and 1972. By the time of his death his work remained the only full monograph on any of the Umayyad palaces found in what are now Syria, Israel, Palestine and Jordan. Although Khirbat al Mafjar is often known as Hisham's Palace, after the 10th Umayyad Caliph (r. 724-43), Hamilton believed it more in keeping with "the character and career of al Walid [II, nephew of Hisham, r. 743-4], the poet, the hunter, and the drinker, much more than Hisham, the censorious, the smasher of lutes". His book has become scarce in commerce, with five copies traced in auction records, of which only two in the dust jacket.

      Chatto & Windus, London 1959 - First edition of the Huxley's autobiographical work based on her early life among white settlers on her father's coffee plantation in Kenya. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, "To Dr. Phil Glover- with best wishes and in memory of a wonderful safari. Elspeth Huxley March 1959." The recipient and Huxley were close friends, as Huxley writes about Glover in her work Forks and Hope An African Notebook. Dr. Phil Glover spent over fifty years in East Africa in an assortment of senior roles including the Chief Zoologist of the Kenya Department of Veterinary Services. He wrote numerous highly regarded papers in his field as well as edited the East African Wildlife Journal. A very nice association. Very good in a very good dust jacket. Jacket design by Rosemary Seligman. Elspeth Huxley prolifically wrote thirty books, but she is best known for her lyrical books The Flame Trees of Thika and The Mottled Lizard. Both are based on her experiences growing up in a coffee farm in Colonial Kenya. Her husband, Gervas Huxley was related to both Thomas and Aldous Huxley (Lownie, 2006). A year after the publication of The Flame Trees of Thika, Huxley was appointed an independent member of the Advisory Commission for the Review of the Constitution of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. She was an advocate of colonialism early in life and later called for independence for African countries (Ibid.). In the 1960s, she served as a correspondent for the National Review magazine. It was later made into the well received television series originally airing in 1981. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Goldfinger

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1959. A Very Good copy of the book with the spine well cocked, rubbing and fraying to the lower edge of the rear board and staining to the closed text-block on the upper fore-edge. In a Very Good dust jacket that has minor wear at the spine ends and a bit of soiling. But, here's the interesting part, this copy retains both prices on the front flap $2.95 (upper) and $3.00 (lower) and is stamped "Sep 23 1959" on the flap. In addition, "Copy #1" is written on the front end paper in ink. Our suspicion is that this was one of the publisher's file copies. The vast majority of these dust jackets are publisher clipped, usually on the upper flap, retaining the $3.00 price. The unclipped jacket offered here would be the true first state jacket. So few of these jackets remain that is seems likely that only the publisher file copies and a handful of other advanced copies given out before the publication date would have retained both prices. The seventh book in Ian Fleming's internationally acclaimed James Bond series, "Goldfinger" was received more positively than its predecessor, "Dr. No," and was heralded as "a superlative thriller from our foremost literary magician" (New York Herald Tribune). While following Auric Goldfinger, a wealthy investor in the gold trade with ties to the Soviet counterintelligence agency, Bond is pulled into a malicious plot to infiltrate and steal the gold of Fort Knox. His efforts to thwart Goldfinger are assisted by Tilly Masterton, who seeks retribution for her murdered sister, and together they fight Goldfinger and his Korean factotum, Oddjob. In this novel, the Bond character was more fully developed and shown, with symbolic undertones, to represent Saint George, a prominent crusading saint in Catholicism. Fleming used American gold tycoon, Charles W. Engelhard Jr., as the inspiration for his Goldfinger character, one of his best villains. Very Good in Very Good dust jacket.
