        Administrative Behavior: A Study of Decision-Making Processes in Administrative Organization. Preliminary Edition.Chicago: Illinois Institute of Technology, 1945.

      Very rare pre-publication of this hugely influential book which the Royal Swedish Academy cited as "epoch-making" in awarding the 1978 Nobel Prize in Economics to Simon "for his pioneering research into the decision-making process within economic organizations". OCLC locates just one copy of this edition (Yale).<br/><br/> "Influenced by the organizational research that was being conducted in other social sciences economists in the 1930s began to look at the structure of companies and at the decision-making process in an entirely new way. Simon's work was of the utmost importance for this new line of development. In his epoch-making book, <i>Administrative Behavior</i> (1947), and in a number of subsequent works, he described the company as an adaptive system of physical, personal and social components that are held together by a network of intercommunications and by the willingness of its members to cooperate and to strive towards a common goal. What is new in Simon's ideas is, most of all, that he rejects the assumption made in the classic theory of the firm of an omniscient, rational, profit-maximizing entrepreneur. He replaces this entrepreneur by a number of cooperating decision-makers, whose capacities for rational action are limited, both by a lack of knowledge about the total consequences of their decisions, and by personal and social ties. Since these decision-makers cannot choose the best alternative, as can the classic entrepreneur, they have to be content with a satisfactory alternative. Individual companies, therefore, strive not to maximize profits but to find acceptable solutions to acute problems. This might mean that a number of partly contradictory goals have to be reached at the same time. Each decision-maker in such a company attempts to find a satisfactory solution to his own set of problems, taking into consideration how others are solving theirs. <br/><br/> "Simon's theories and observations about decision-making in organizations apply very well to the systems and techniques of planning, budgeting and control that are used in modern business and public administration. These theories are less elegant and less suited to overall economic analysis than is the classic profit-maximizing theory, but they provide greater possibilities for understanding and predictions in a number of areas. They have been used successfully to explain and predict such diverse activities as the distribution of access to information and decision-making within companies, market adjustment to limited competition, choosing investment portfolios and choosing a country in which to establish a foreign investment. Modern business economics and administrative research are largely based on Simon's ideas." (Nobel Press Release). <br/><br/> The first edition was published by Macmillan in 1947; the second, in 1957; the third, in 1976; and the fourth, in 1997. A 1990 article in <i>Public Administration Review</i> named it the "public administration book of the half century" (1940-1990). It was voted the fifth most influential management book of the 20th century in a poll of the Fellows of the Academy of Management. See also the detailed Wikipedia article on the book.. Offset typed leaves (280 x 218 mm) punch bound in metal clasp and stiff old cardboard wrappers (chipped and teared), vi[i] 247 leaves (printed on one side of the sheet, only), verso of title page stamped 'MAR 11 1945'

Edited by the Editorial Department of Chinese Photography. 200 color portraits of Mao in various guises, presented in chronological order. The photographer, Hou Bo, was never credited for these pictures, and wound up in a labor camp after falling out with Mao's wife. The uniformity of color in Bo's images, combined with her uncanny knack for capturing Mao's unchanging features, create the feel of an artist's book, rather than an exercise in state sponsored propaganda.

        The World According to Garp

      NY: Dutton. (1978). His fourth novel, and his breakthrough book, which went into numerous printings and became a multi-million copy bestseller and a National Book Award winner in its paperback release. Basis for the well-received movie. The first printing of Garp was 35,000 copies -- far larger than any of Irving&#39;s previous novels but far short of any of the books that came later: his next novel, The Hotel New Hampshire, had a 100,000 copy first printing and since then all his books have had first printings well into six figures. Inscribed by the author to a former student of Irving&#39;s at Wyndham College, and although the inscription is not dated it was reportedly signed on the night before publication at a reading in Northampton, Massachusetts. It is hard to remember, but before Garp John Irving was a little-known literary writer, not a major, bestselling author. That he was giving a reading on the night before publication in a town like Northampton, MA, rather than New York City or San Francisco is in keeping with that fact. Foxing to top edge; narrow edge sunning at spine; near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a bit of foxing to verso and modest wear to the crown. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        [Photoplay]: Dog Soldiers: A First Draft Screenplay

      Charles Eastman Manhattan Beach, California: Charles Eastman. [no date, but presumably pre-1978]. First. Screenplay. Quarto. 191 leaves printed rectos only. Photocopied sheets, bradbound into plain, unprinted pale blue wrappers. A little age-toned and light foxing on the wrappers and foredge, else near fine. The photocopied sheets reproduce the punch holes, so clearly copied from a bound example, but seemingly contemporary and presumably one of very few copies. Unproduced screenplay from Robert Stone's novel Dog Soldiers. The novel was eventually produced in 1978 as Who'll Stop the Rain with a screenplay by Stone and Judith Rascoe. Eastman had three screenplays produced, the best known probably the 1970 film Little Fauss and Big Halsy. OCLC locates a single copy, at the Dallas Public Library. .
