    PERFECT RIGOR: A Genius and the Mathematical Breakthrough of the Century.
    Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )

    New York & Boston: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, (2009). First edition - "In 2006, an eccentric Russian mathematician named Grigori Perelman solved one of the world's greatest intellectual puzzles. The Poincare conjecture is an extremely complex topological problem that had eluded the best minds for over a century. In 1998, the Clay Institute in Boston named it one of seven great unsolved mathematical problems, and promised a million dollars to anyone who could find a solution." This is the story of Perelman, and how his mind of incredible computational power became increasingly unable to deal with the messiness of the human affairs - at the time this was written, the only person with whom Perelman would talk was his mother, with whom he shared an apartment. Notes. 233 pp.

King, Chuck Berry, and Elvis Presley--and looks at the subtle transition to just plain "rock" in the music of Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, and others. He praises the endless vitality of Al Green, George Clinton, and Neil Young.

    McDougall, Eleanor (1874-1956)
    LAMPS IN THE WIND: South Indian College Women and Their Problems.
    Edition: First US printing.

    New York: Friendship Press, 1940,. Hardcover first edition - Although this book focuses on the experiences and Christian faith of several students at the Women's Christian College in Madras, India , the introduction comments that the demand for education has outstripped what the Christian Church can offer, and many schools are now available with no connection to any religion. McDougal was Principal of the school from its inception in 1915 to 1938, but her successor, Eleanor Rivett, felt that this book should be suppressed since its focus on the weaknesses of the Indian students could undo all the good that had been done up to that time and even endanger its future. While the defence was made that this was written for a British audience (and it was not, in fact, made available in India), the Indian staff were almost unanimous in disavowing the picture it presented and in feeling that their previous principal had betrayed confidential matters. Even the title "Lamps in the Wind" implies weakness. Frontispiece. 165 pp. plus 1 pp of publisher's ads.

First edition - Recueil indispensable d'articles de base dus ˆ Ferdinand de Saussure, auteur du fameux Cours de linguistique generale, et dont le role dans l'evolution de la linguistique moderne a ete dŽterminant. En Francais (Text in French) The essential writings by the Swiss scholar who is considered the father of modern linguistics and of semiotics, with a preface by Charles Bailly et LŽopold Gautier, two of his students who were instrumental in publishing posthumously his "Cours de linguistique generale." This work includes papers dating back to 1879 (Memoire sur le systeme primitif des voyelles dans les langues indo-europeennes) and continuing throughout his career. Quite scarce in the first edition. This copy is quite fragile and worn, but far more interesting than the flaws is the evidence that it presumably belonged to the baseball player, intelligence officer and scholar, Moe Berg: it is stamped in several places with "Morris (Moe) Berg." Berg (1902-1972) played in the major leagues for 15 years and he joined the fledging OSS during World War II where he was pivotal in gaining information on whether or not the Germans where developing a nuclear bomb. Throughout his life, he was known for his ability to speak many languages (he graduated from Princeton with a degree in modern literature and the ability to read seven languages, and he later added more, including Japanese). A seminal book on linguistics from the library of one of the most unique of American scholars. Index. 638 pp.
