The Subjection of Women

By Mill, John Stuart

Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co, 1869. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo. 174 pp. Bound in brown, rough cloth with gilt lettering and publisher's logo on the spine, brown endpapers and pastedowns. Six pages of publisher's advertisements bound in at the rear. This copy has the name of a "Nan Eastman" dated 1869, and her notes, which include a hand-written list of important suffragists (their names and their positions in the organizations) who worked for the Ohio Women's Suffrage Association at the time, as well as a list of three women who spearheaded the national movement. The names include Rev. Anna Howard Shaw, one of the first female ordained Methodist ministers in the United States, and at that time the Vice President of NOW, Carrie Chapman Catt, the president of NOW, as well as Hattie A. Sachs, an important Ohio suffragist who worked for both OWSA and NOW. On the next leaf Eastman included a drawing of Mrs. Hattie A Sachs' blouse and made notes of her appearance (however this drawing is not dated nor is there any reference to when Eastman would have seen Sachs). The text also includes a few pencil annotations from Eastman. An important work decrying the oppression of women written by one of the most renowned philosophers of the nineteenth century, with a nice contemporary association with the American women's movement of that era. Very Good with a few traces of wear to the edges of the boards and a bit of mild fading to the spine.

Theory of Self-Reproducing Automata

By Von Neumann, John

Urbana, IL: University of Illinois Press [1966], 1966. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good+/Very Good. 388 pp. Price of $10.00 on front flap of dust jacket, and the British price of 75 s. on the bottom of the front flap of the dust jacket. Edited and completed by Arthur W. Burks. Von Neumann made important contributions to set theory, game theory, and to many other branches of mathematics. In this book, he describes the logical design of a universal constructor, a machine capable of self-replication. A profound consequence of this result is that the complex evolution observed in living organisms could, in principle, be replicated by machines. A presentable copy of a landmark book that is uncommon and quite difficult to find in collectible condition. A Very Good+ book with foxing to the textblock and a moderate lean in a Very Good dust jacket with a few hints of rubbing and fading to the spine panel and foxing to the reverse of the jacket.
