        Steps Toward Artificial Intelligence" in Proceedings of the IRE, Vol. 49, No. 1, 1961, pp. 8-30

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PRINTED WRAPPERS OF MINSKY'S "SEMINAL" WORK ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (MIT Biography). In this paper, Minsky outlines the basic features of AI programs that today still form the basis of artificial solving, including searching and pattern-recognition techniques. This work established symbol manipulation - divided into heuristic search, pattern recognition, learning, planning, and induction - to be at the center of any attempt at understanding intelligence (A.C.M. Statement of Minsky's achievements). Marvin Minsky was a pioneer of robotics and tele-presence who designed and built some of the first visual scanners, mechanical hands with tactile sensors, one of the first LOGO 'turtles', and their software and hardware interfaces - works that influenced many subsequent robotic projects. This 1961 work by Minsky surveyed and analyzed what had been done before and outlined many major problems that the infant discipline of artificial intelligence would later need to face. This paper "reveals a remarkable catalogue of techniques that had been developed in less than a decade's worth of research, [including] "basic forms of search, evaluation, and learning, but also the beginnings of a model of intelligence and a way that programs could begin to 'understand' their own behavior. Minsky ended the paper with a look toward a future where time-sharing and multiprocessing programs would provide easier access to a growing amount of computing power" (Henderson, Artificial Intelligence, 63). CONDITION AND DETAILS: New York: Institute of Radio Engineers. 4to. Original printed wrappers with scuffs and edge wear; short closed tears at spine tips and on the contents page. Library stamp on front cover and contents page; no other library markings. Very good condition.

        My Brother Aquarius. Poems.

      Nash Publications 1961 - FIRST EDITION, frontispiece repeating dustjacket design, light foxing to title-page with the odd spot further in, one page with a small scribble in red pencil, sliver of surface lifting to final text-page, pp. [viii], 62, 4to, original blue cloth lettered in gilt to upper board and backstrip, very light rubbing to extremities and a few indentations at head of lower board, dustjacket designed by Tennant with some light soiling to rear panel, very good. With a lengthy inscription in blue ink by Tennant across the front endpapers: 'For Carol Pennels, I think you are a true poet.' - Tennant goes on to enumerate the qualities he has discerned in the work she has sent to him, ending 'Poetry is an Essence of Experience. You are saving something precious from Oblivion. Very cordially yours, Stephen Tennant'. The inscription is written from Wilsford Manor and dated to October 1972. On the facing pastedown, Tennant has written his poem 'The soul of a wheel is the space between the spokes', an adaptation from the Chinese, along with a quotation from 'Romeo & Juliet' - attributed to 'W. Shakespeare? a Bacon? or Edward de Vere?'. Laid in at the front is a letter to the same recipient, presenting the book, from her Uncle John - who evidently worked for Tennant in some capacity, as the address at the head is the same. A charming presentation copy from the one-time socialite and then recluse, his aesthetic nature developing a mystical tone.
