Description:
New York: New Directions, 1967. First Edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. Signed limited first edition. One of a limited 110 unnumbered copies signed by Ezra Pound. Printed by Andrew Hoyem and Robert Grabhorn in San Francisco, and bound in publisher's tan linen cloth over blue paper-covered boards with errata slip tipped in at rear; in publisher's unprinted white dust jacket. Near Fine, with lean to spine, covers faintly marked. In a Near Fine dust jacket, lightly soiled and with light edge wear. An early long poem of Pound's, and his first attempt to write poetry using world history, and adding opinions of his own. Originally intended to be published in the 1911 first edition of Canzoni, Pound deemed it too serious, and removed it during the proof stage. It was not until 1967 when the poem was finally published, first in an Australian poetry magazine, then here for the first time in book format in a limitation of 110 copies. There is no equivalent trade edition. Gallup A90.

Description:
Northampton, MA: Edward Elgar Publishing, 1996. First edition of this important collection of essays. Octavo, original boards. Boldly signed by John Nash on the title page. In fine condition, issued without a dust jacket. Introduction by Ken Binmore. Rare and desirable. When John Nash was awarded the Nobel prize in economics in 1994, many people were surprised to learn that he was alive and well. Since then, Sylvia Nasar's celebrated biography A Beautiful Mind, has revealed the man. The Essential John Nash reveals his work--in his own words. This book presents, for the first time, the full range of Nash's diverse contributions not only to game theory, for which he received the Nobel, but to pure mathematics--from Riemannian geometry and partial differential equations--in which he commands even greater acclaim among academics. Included are nine of Nash's most influential papers, most of them written over the decade beginning in 1949. "Why are we so intrigued by the story of John… Read More

The first cinema, the Asakusa Denikikan, was opened in Tokyo in 1903 and within 13 years 300 cinemas had sprung up throughout the country... (The author) focuses on the historical development of Japanese film, illustrated by a series of typical Japanese film posters. She details an industry and an art form shaped by the competing and merging forces of traditional culture and of economic and technological innovation." Edgewear, creases to bottom and bottom and top corners of front cover, soil on bottom and light soil to outside pages.
