        Edice Situace, nos. 1-15 (all published)

      Jazzová sekce (Jazz Section), [Prague] 1983 - Quartos (30 × 21 cm). Original staple-stitched wrappers; 19, [1] pp. each. Numerous black-and-white reproductions per issue, printed on better quality stock. Occasional light wear to wrappers; rust to a few staples; still a very good set. The complete run of these fifteen catalogs of unofficial, conceptual Czechoslovak art from the Normalization era, semi-legally printed by the Jazz Section, an organization of jazz musicians that legally organized within the Czechoslovak Musicians' Union and thereby gained the right to publish bulletins for supposedly private use by its members. Until it was forced to close in 1986, the Jazz Section operated in a legal "gray zone": it thus played an important part in counteracting strict Normalization cultural policies by publishing material related not only to music, but also unofficial art and theater. For more on the Jazz Section, see 'Social Currents in Eastern Europe,' pp. 128. The head of the Jazz Section, Karel Srp, served as editor of the present series and wrote the short introductions to the catalogs. Each issue features numerous full-page photographic reproductions showing artworks, happenings, performances, as well as original text, biographical information, and lists of exhibitions. The artists covered are, in order of publication: Adriena ?imotová, Karel Miler, Jitka Svobodová, Milan Grygar, Emila Medková, Stanislav Kolíbal, Jan Svoboda, Eva Kmentová, Libor Fára, Václav Bo?tík, Petr ?tembera, Karel Malich, Dalibor Chatrný, Hugo Demartini, Vladimír Janou?ek. Overall design by Joska Skalník. Working in a range of media, from wire sculptures to performance art and happenings, many of them worked in obscurity during the 1970-80s, but have since emerged to greater acclaim KVK, OCLC show complete runs at the Clark, University of Toronto, Watson Library (Metropolitan Museum), and individual issues at the Getty, Harvard, and Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam). The Czech National Library only holds three of the fifteen catalogs. Complete sets are very scarce. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Alan Turing: The Enigma; [together with] 3 typed letters signed from Hodges to Arthur Harris, Turing's school friend and "fag-master" at Sherborne School.

      London: Burnett Books Limited, 1983 - Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in silver. With the dust jacket. With 3 single sheet letters, dated 31 July 1978, 30 October 1983, and 10 November 1983 respectively, and 2 newspaper clippings, the first an article by Hodges on Turing from The Sunday Telegraph, 7 September 1986, the second a review of Hodges's biography, laid-in. Contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Spine a little rolled and ends bumped, top edge lightly foxed, dust jacket extremities rubbed with two tape repairs to inside, overall a very good copy. Letters and newspaper clippings creased and folded as typical. 8 pages of black and white photographic plates. First edition, first impression, of Hodges's esteemed biography of the great computer science pioneer, accompanied by letters from the author to Arthur Harris requesting information on Turing as a student and, later, thanking him for his assistance. In his first letter to Harris, the head boy of Turing's school house, Westcott, Hodges writes, "I am doing my best to reconstruct Turing's perhaps rather chequered career at Sherborne School. Your name features in Mrs Sara Turing's memoir of her son, and Mr Peter Hogg [another of Turing's schoolmates] also spoke warmly of you when I met him a few weeks ago. I understand that Alan Turing was your fag in the year 1926-27. Mr M. H. Blamey also told me a story of Turing's arrival at Sherborne during the General Strike: apparently it was you who took the message when he telegraphed from Southampton. Anecdotes of this kind will all help me to construct a readable narrative, and I wonder whether you would be able to help me with further comments?" Harris evidently responded in the affirmative, for several of his stories are included in the book, including why he appointed Turing as his personal servant, or "fag", as part of the traditional public school practice of fagging. He had been impressed, he said, by Turing's initiative in cycling the 63 miles from Southampton to Sherborne so as not to miss the first day of the summer term when the trains were cancelled due to the strike. In turn, Harris's younger brother, David, would become Turing's fag on joining the school "and found him well-meaning but absent-minded as a master" (p. 58). In the second and third letters, Hodges expresses his dismay at forgetting to return a photograph album and history of the school which Harris had evidently lent to him, and thanks him for his "warm response" to the biography, which had been published in the UK the month previous, in October. Alan Turing: The Enigma was the basis for the Academy Award-winning film, The Imitation Game (2014), starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley. Copies of the first UK edition (the US edition was published later the same year) are very scarce in commerce. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Derry: Field Day Theatre Company Limited, 1983-8 - 15 works, octavo. Original coloured paper wrappers, wire-stitched, front wrappers lettered in brown, blue, and white. With the wraparound bands. Light foxing to contents and bands, a few tape repairs to the wraparound bands, one of which is loose. Overall a bright and excellent set. First editions, first impressions, of the full set of Field Day pamphlets, each signed by their respective authors, published by the theatre company credited with developing Irish Studies and stimulating Irish literary and political culture during the 1980s and 1990s. The authors are Tom Paulin, Seamus Heaney, Seamus Deane (who contributed two pamphlets), Richard Kearney, Declan Kiberd, Terence Brown, R.L. McCartney, Marianne Elliott, Eanna Mulloy, Michael Farrell, Patrick J. McCrory, Terry Eagleton, Frederic Jameson, and Edward W. Said. Each was inscribed at the request of Dr Philip Murray, the noted Irish bibliophile whose collection sold in 2016 in Ireland's largest-ever sale of first editions. Some authors wrote personal messages to Murray; Marianne Elliott wrote "the future is in the past, the past in the future - can we learn?", and Seamus Deane calls Murray "a brick from Babylon!" The pamphlets are typically sold separately and therefore the complete set is scarce in commerce. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

      Bertelsmann Verlag, Gütersloh 1983 - c1983. Die grosse Bertelsmann Lexikothek. über 9000 Seiten. Kunstledereinband mit Ou. leichte Gebrauchsspuren, guter Zustand. ".Technik begleitet den Menschen, seit er sich mittels schöpferischer Ideen über das Tier erhob. Die Schaffung von Vorrichtungen, Verfahren und Erzeugnissen unter Einsatz der Stoffe und Kräfte der um ihn waltenden Natur ist nur dem Menschen eigentümlich und hat ihm Mittel und Möglichkeiten in die Hand gegeben, die von jeher eine große Faszination, aber auch Verwirrung und Furcht auslösten. Aus dieser Furcht wuchs das verständliche Bestreben, die Techniker, die Sachverständigen, die Spezialisten einzubinden in gesellschaftliche Verantwortlichkeit und die lebendige Wechselbeziehung zwischen Individuum und Gruppe, zwischen technischer Entscheidung und gesellschaftspolitischer Konsequenz vor Augen zu führen.In dem vorliegenden Buch wird dieser Notwendigkeit bewußt Rechnung getragen. Der thematische Grundtenor ist die Wechselwirkung von Mensch und Technik: Wie hat der Mensch mit Hilfe der von ihm entwickelten Technik seine Lebensprobleme bewältigt - und welche Rückwirkungen hat die Technik auf den einzelnen Menschen und die Gesellschaft in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart gezeigt? Welche Einflüsse wird die Technik auf die Zukunft haben?Zur Konzeption sei gesagt: Dieses Buch versteht sich nicht als trockene (Lehrbuch-) Lektüre und nicht als Lexikon. Es bietet eine zusammenhängende und leicht lesbare Gesamtschau über das Wesen der Technik von ihren Anfängen bis heute. Es kann und will keinen Anspruch auf enzyklopädische Vollständigkeit erheben. Hier wird Zusammenhangwissen exemplarisch dargestellt, nach dem Grundsatz »Das Wesentliche durch das Beispielhafte«.Zur Vertiefung und Ausweitung der dargestellten Themen wird der Leser angesprochen durch die neuartige Gliederung in »Überblick-«, »Querschnitt-« und »Ausschnitt«-Kapitel, durch den lebendigen Wechsel von Schrift- und Bildinformation, durch farbig unterlegte Informationskästchen, kommentierte Literatur-hinweise und häufige, die Lektüre erleichternde Zwischenabschnitte - er wird zum entspannenden Lesen angeregt und dabei fast unterschwellig informiert, wie es modernen didaktischen Erkenntnissen entspricht.»Technik in unserer Welt« vermittelt jedem Leser - mit und ohne Vorkenntnisse -Information, Erklärung, Aufklärung -Hilfe bei der Bewältigung des uns alle berührenden Problems der fortschreitenden Technisierung.Das neue Informations- und Bildungssystem In fünfjähriger Arbeit wurde unter Mitwirkung von über 1000 Spezialisten, darunter vielen namhaften Wissenschaftlern, die bahnbrechende LEXIKOTHEK-Konzeption entwickelt.

        CATHEDRAL

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1983. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine in a Fine dustwrapper. Although his previous collection achieved some popularity, this title is really Carver's breakthrough and break-away (from the restraints of Gordon Lish's style) book. In it, Carver moved beyond the constraining label of minimalism to mine an emotional depth not present in his previous work and which would blossom fully in his next and last book. The title story and "A Small, Good Thing" rank among the best stories of the latter twentieth century. SIGNED by the author on the title page.
