        We Bombed in New Haven. WITH: Autograph and typed letters signed, discussing Catch-22

      1961 - HELLER, Joseph. We Bombed in New Haven. WITH: Autograph letter signed. WITH: Typed letter signed, discussing Catch-22. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1968. Octavo, original maroon cloth, original dust jacket. Two leaves of Heller's letterhead (7-1/4 by 10-1/2 inches), one typed and signed on recto, the other in autograph manuscript and signed on recto. Housed all together in a custom clamshell box. $7800.First edition of Heller's anti-war play produced during the Vietnam war, inscribed by him, "To Walter ""-, With admiration and sincere good wishes." Heller sent this inscribed book to the recipient after he had written to Heller praising Catch-22 and implying that it was an inspiration for his decision to move to Canada to dodge the U.S. military draft. With a lengthy typed letter signed by Heller from 1969 to the recipient praising him for his courage and discussing the composition of Catch-22, as well as an autograph letter signed from 1999 to the same recipient.Joseph Heller's first novel quickly became a classic of anti-war literature. So effective were Heller's humor and insight that the title passed cleanly into the English language as a precise evocation of an unwinnable situation. "When the novel appeared in 1961, World War II veterans appreciated its satire of the military bureaucracy and the chaos of war. By the mid-1960s, it had become a cult classic among counterculture activists for its biting indictment of war" (Books of the Century). The recipient of this inscribed first edition, Walter Krajewski, wrote to Heller in January of 1969 from Toronto, praising Catch-22, asking about the composition of the chapter entitled "The Eternal City," mulling over his own decision to leave the United States (and thus avoid the draft), defending Heller's decision to work for Time magazine against charges of 'selling out,' discussing anti-establishment sentiments prevalent in Canada at the time, and praising Heller for finding a way to make a positive contribution to culture and society. (Krajewski's original letter is included.)In May of 1969, Heller replied to Krajewski with a lengthy typed letter in which he discusses the draft and his own son (who would have been 13 at the time), comments on "The Eternal City," and remarks on his years at Time magazine and during the war. The letter reads in part: "It was both an honor and a sadness to hear from someone who did leave the country rather than participate in this war; I like to think that I would do the same if faced with a similar choice, although I'm not sure I would have the strength of character to do so, and I will certainly encourage my own son to leave when he is old enough to be threatened with military service, and leave with him if he wishes me to". The chapter THE ETERNAL CITY, if I remember correctly, was one of the easiest of all to write, the reason being, I think, that by that time in the book there was little artifice and more of a need for direct expression. By that time, too, the time spiral had sort of straightened itself out and there was a direct continuity of narrative". I'd not heard before that I was accused of selling out". If anything, I bought out, not sold out: I wrote most of the novel while I worked there and left the whole God damned industrial world altogether shortly after it was published. And, surprising as it may sound, I enjoyed myself immensely while I worked there, just as I enjoyed myself, I am almost ashamed to admit, for most of my service in the army." Heller mentions that he is sending this copy of We Bombed in New Haven under separate cover, "on the chance that you will enjoy that too," and closes by writing, "I wish you will be able to come back soon."In 1999 Krajewski wrote another letter to Heller, with which he enclosed a copy of Heller's letter from 1969 by way of re-introducing himself (Krajewski's 1999 letter is not included), prompting Heller to pen the following letter: "It was good to receive your letter, with a copy of my own [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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.

      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.

I expressed my wish to share this honor with my friends and asked His Holiness to bless the enclosed medal for you. Best personal regards.""John Gerald William Mahanna (1913-1984), a Navy man, was on leave from fighting in the Pacific, visiting San Francisco. He went to check into a hotel, but it was booked. Another Navy man in line, hearing that he was from Massachusetts, said, ""You can bunk with me if you want."" It was John F. Kennedy, and the two struck up a friendship.
