        A Mathematical Theory of Communication" in Bell System Technical Journal 27, No. 3, July 1948, pp. 379-592 with No. 4, October 1948

      TWO VOLUME FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE IN HANDSOMELY RENDERED FACSIMILE WRAPS of one of the founding works on information theory, Claude Shannon's "A Mathematical Theory of Communication." In this landmark paper on information theory -- the most famous in its field -- Shannon began by "observing that the fundamental problem of communication is that of reproducing at one point either exactly or approximately a message selected at another point" (Bose, Information Theory, 49). In short, the problem was how to keep the message from becoming distorted in transit. Shannon's extraordinary idea was that basic principles of binary or digital information can be related to fundamental physical laws. Toward that end, he provided a mathematical theory for encoding information by applying a value to it -- either 0 or 1. This formulation is commonly known as the basis for digital communications. Additionally, Shannon he demonstrated that mathematics could be used to calculate the theoretical maximum amount of information carried by a communications system based upon the physical laws of thermodynamics. Shannon's work so thoroughly established the foundations of information theory that his framework and terminology remain the standard today" (ibid). "At the heart of the theory was a new conceptualization of information. To make communication theory a scientific discipline, Shannon needed to provide a precise definition of information that transformed it into a physical parameter capable of quantification. He accomplished this transformation by distinguishing information from meaning. He reserved 'meaning' for the content actually included in a particular message. He used 'information' to refer to the number of different possible messages that could be carried along a channel, depending on the message's length and on the number of choices of symbols for transmission at each point in the message. Information in Shannon's sense was a measure of orderliness (as opposed to randomness) in that it indicated the number of possible messages from which a particular message to be sent was chosen. The larger the number of possibilities, the larger the amount of information transmitted because the actual message is distinguished from a greater number of possible alternatives" (Aspray, 1985, pp. 119-122). Shannon's source coding theorem establishes entropy (the number of bits needed to encode an uncertain event) as the most fundamental measure of information. "Shannon entropy" quantifies the information contained in a message, usually in bits. Shannon's 'noisy-channel coding theorem' defines the 'channel capacity' of a communications channel as the maximum information rate (in units of information per unit time) that can be achieved with arbitrarily small error possibility. CONDITION & DETAILS: Both issues are in fine condition, with the facsimile wraps meticulously rendered. Housed in fine clamshell box.

        a: A Novel

      New York: Grove Press, 1985. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. This is a very rare signed first edition, first printing of Andy Warhols critically acclaimed a: A Novel published by Grove Press, New York in 1985. This is the only novel written by Andy Warhol (written may be the wrong choice of words since the novel was completely taped by him on a tape recorder). From the publisher, As an artist who sets new images and reveals a culture to itself, Andy Warhol\'s reputation is firmly established. Originally entitled Cock, it has also had such working titles as SPEEED KILLS, Amphootimum, Co-Pilots, UPss, Or AAI, and Twenty*Four Hours...If an encyclopedia is a concise compendium of a man\'s knowledge, Andy Warhol\'s novel is the obverse - a total experience of a daily life raised to a fever pitch of brilliancy, vagueness, hilarity, confusion, insight through the abnormally extreme personalities of his real-life characters. Measuring approximately 9 inches by 6 inches, the book is a black cloth hardback with bright silver titles in an illustrated dust jacket. The condition of the book is FINE in a Near FINE dust jacket with some age toning to the edges and some chipping and scratches to the back of the dust jacket. The book is protected by a mylar cover. The book is signed by Andy Warhol on the title page
