Description:
London: Cassell and Company, Limited, 1931. Vagabonds' first chapter is "a masterpiece" in evoking the loss of innocence and the perils of modernity (Ferguson, 290). It also introduces the trilogy's protagonist, August, one of Hamsun's most enduring figures. "What makes Hamsun more than just a good storyteller and a superb stylist are his insights into the 'almost imperceptible movements of the soul' and his sense of the mystery of life" (Wintle, New Makers). Yet controversy continues over Hamsun's role in the Nazi occupation of Norway and his meetings with Hitler and Goebbels. To his biographer, "what can be safely said of him is that he was a great writer, and his contribution to the art of writing has been enormous" (Ferguson, 422). First edition, first issue: copyright page with no statement of edition or printings; copies found with colophon or without colophon (this copy), no priority established. Copyright date of "Oct. 29, 1930" (Catalogue of Copyright Entries.… Read more

Description:
London: Oxford University Press, 1939. First edition of the economist's groundbreaking work. Octavo, original black cloth with gilt titles to the spine. Signed by John R. Hicks on the front free endpaper. An excellent example in a very good dust jacket with some light rubbing and wear. Housed in a custom half clamshell box. Rare and desirable signed. Upon publication, Value and Capital was hailed as a classic work. In it, J.R. Hicks introduced Walrasian general equilibrium theory to an English-speaking audience. This was the first publication to attempt a rigorous statement of stability conditions for general equilibrium. In doing so, Hicks formalised comparative statics. The book synthesises dynamic-adjustment elements from Walras and Wicksell and from Marshall and Keynes. It distinguishes temporary, intermediate, and long-run equilibrium with expectations as to future market conditions affecting behavior in current markets (Bliss, 1987, pp. 642–43). "In this book Professor Hicks has essayed… Read more

Chicago: International Publishing Corporation, 1991. First edition of this work which evolved out of Edleson's 1988 article which first introduced his concept of value averaging to the world. Octavo, original glossy wrappers. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "Dear John, Many Happy Returns, Michael E. Edleson." Additionally signed by Warren Buffett, "Warren E. Buffett." Like Edleson, American business magnate Warren E. Buffett developed his own innovative investment strategies based on the concept of value investing which he shared in several papers, essays and books. In near fine condition. Rare and desirable signed by both Edleson and Buffett. In Value Investing, Michale E. Edleson describes in detail his innovative investment strategy that addresses the age-old problem all investors face: how to "buy low" and then "sell high" to build real wealth easily and consistently over time. "Since its first printing in 1991, the cachet of Value Averaging has steadily grown to cult classic… Read more

Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1974. First edition of this "first class contribution to the field of game theory" (Oskar Morgenstern). Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by Robert Aumann on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. The "Shapley value" of a finite multi- person game associates to each player the amount he should be willing to pay to participate. This book extends the value concept to certain classes of non-atomic games, which are infinite-person games in which no individual player has significance. It is primarily a book of mathematics--a study of non-additive set functions and associated linear operators.

In the books preface, Johnson states: "I make no pretense of having written a complete and definitive history of my Presidency. I have tried, rather, to review that period from a President's personal and political philosophy, a President's experience and knowledge...and a President's response to the demands that were made of him." The book was published in the same year that the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum opened on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.
