About this Item: Unpublished, London, 1952. Single Sheet, Folded. Condition: Very Good. Original Letter. Single Sixpence "Air Letter" With Typed Text, 82 Typed Lines And Five Handwritten Lines, Signed By Ethel Mannin, Dated October 13, 1952. She Begins By Thanking Him For The Copy Of Ethan Frome He Sent, And For A Box Of Clothing He Sent, Apologizes For Passing On One Of Two Shirts To F, Rest Of Things To Hoffmann [Apparently In Germany]. She Is Glad He Likes Her Recent Book About Her Father. She Mentions A Recent Call From Jimmy S., And Discusses Him, Mentioning That When She Told Him About This Recipient's Birthday Greeting Wire, He Had Said He Liked The Recipient "& That You'd Given Him Something For A Cause- Then He Laughed Saying 'Fancy Me Having A Cause." She Notes That He Says He Doesn't Have Time To Come To Her, And Her Resentment That He Feels His Time Is More Valuable Than Hers. She Later Adds "And It Is So Hard To Forgive (Somehow) Those Who Scampered Out Of Europe Hell-For-Leather As Early As 1938, All For Standing Up To Hitler But Leaving The Other Chaps To Do It. Then In 1945 J Turned Up At The Nuremberg Trials; & Now Is Back In Europe After Becoming An American Citizen (If I Remember Rightly; He Must Have Done For He Was Worried At One Time About The Possibility Of Being Sent To A Work-Camp As A War-Resister; He Wasn't Though, I Don't Know What Happened." She Then Discusses At Length The Sexual Behavior Of The Characters Of Ethan Frome, The Author Edith Wharton, And What The Book Shows About Wharton's Ideas About Sexuality. "What It Does Iillumine, To My Mind, Is The Author's Hatred Of Natural Human (That Is To Say Sexual) Love. I Found, With This Re-Reading, That The Book Was Depressing In The Way That Real Tragedy Isn't; That The Tragedy Was Reduced To The Mean, Brutal, Squalid (As In American Tragedy) - Nothing Fine, Nothing To Lift Up The Heart In Spite Of Pain, No Intimations Of 'The Many-Splendoured Thing'." In 1964 She Traveled Through The United States, Meeting Austin In California, Staying With Him And Traveling In California With Him. She Wrote A Book About The Trip, "An American Journey" [Hutchison, 1967], Which She Dedicated "For Rickey With Whom I Made Some Of These Travels, And To Whom I Owe So Much - In Enduring Friendship". Austin Was Also The Dedicatee Of Her 1951 Novel At Sundown The Tiger, "For Rickey Austin, If Only Because He Loves Cats, This Story Of The Noblest Cat Of All, With Gratitude And Affection.".

About this Item: Unpublished, London. Single Sheet, Folded. Condition: Very Good. Original Letter. Two page letter typed in red ink, 68 lines, to M. L. "Rickey" Austin, signed by Ethel Mannin, no date but sometime before October 13, 1952, the date of a later letter. She begins by explaining how she happened to meet him at a lunch earlier that day with Gogarty - "the thought of G's garrulouys egotism seemed too much." but she had relaxed "and decided that however tiresome G. might be he was a Great Man and I'd better make the effort. and so we met, you and I, earlier than expected. and I like it And hoped you did. Only all the time I thought how much easier if we'd been alone. I wanted to talk to you and didn't feel equal to G.'s egotism Also he's less entertaining and more reactionary than ever since his USA success. If you feel coming out with G. on Monday, please do ." She sets up a meeting at the Rose and Crown after seeing Arthur Ballard, who managed the Socialist Book Center they operated, "our bookshop - he's had haemorrage of the eyes and is out in the country unable to write or read". . "If you came in the middle of the a/noon Tues we cld have tea together and talk a bit before the others come. Its lovely meeting you at last. I like your voice- and I attach importance to voices . I hope to be less jaded and tired when we next meet. Ah, if only we could have met 9 or ten years ago in theMexican sun! . I was less tired, then, and there were fewer lines in the face . But we'll talk. My love to you, A bientot (lovely to write it at last) [signed] Ethel". In 1964 she traveled through the United States, meeting Austin in California, staying with him and traveling in California with him. She wrote a book about the trip, "An American Journey" [Hutchison, 1967], which she dedicated "For Rickey with whom I made some of these travels, and to whom I owe so much - in enduring friendship". Austin was also the dedicatee of her 1951 novel at Sundown the Tiger, "For Rickey Austin, if only because he loves cats, this story of the noblest cat of all, with gratitude and affection.".

About this Item: Unpublished, London, 1952. Single Sheet, Folded. Condition: Very Good. Original Letter. Single sixpence "Air Letter" with typed text, 129 typed lines and three handwritten lines, signed by Ethel Mannin, dated November 4th, 1952. She begins by apologizing for the delay in replying to the recipient's response to her earlier letter discussing Ethan Frome, being almost literally up to her neck in extremely difficult Moroccan proofs, which had been read by a "nice consul" she met in Tetuan, for the Arabic and facts. She mentions how she has been under great strain while writing a novel and because of T.'s job-hunting (she got him a job selling books at Foyle's). She thanks the recipient for sending nylons, and states she gave flannels from the last parcel to T, and a shirt to Francis. She states that she can get him copies of This Was a Man at trade price, but unless he wants vast numbers, she will send them as a gift. She mentions her recent letter about paperback rights, published in the Guardian, and that it was taken up and quoted by The Bookseller. "Bernard very sweetly gave me the new Huxley for my birthday. Reading an American novel called The Caine Mutiny which is a best seller here and which I think very good indeed. I've never liked anything of Waugh's except a Handful of Dust. He is a quite horrible person. So plain nasty in his snootyness and superiority, & so rude [underlined], almost pathologically so. I dropped Louis Marlowe after he wrote an abominable Vansittarish book called Forth Beast - after Germany was beaten & starving - and for saying he could think of so many good reasons for not sending food to Germany - & him a great food-guzzler, gourmet, bon-viveur & the rest of it; I just cldn't like him anymore.I feel that people must have some very special lovable qualities if one is to forgive quite abominable general ideas. and then, apart from disagreeing with certain ideas, some ideas are so filthy that its not a question of not agreeing but of being so sickened thant one only wants not to have to do with that person. I am watching the Kenya business very closely; I know Jomo Kenyatta; neither Reg [Reginald Reynolds, her husband] nor I like him, but to try to make out he's a Communist is abominable. There is no Mau-Mau, you know; no such organization; what does exist is an angry anti-white mass of land-hungry tribes-people-pledged to get the whites out. There is no such Kikuyu word as Mau-Mau. I read the M Guardian these days & they've been ery good about the whole business. Fenner Brockway . has protested abt being accompanied by an armed guard everywhere . and they keep on arrresting any african he does meet, one after another. Well, they're being fools. I intend to try to sell a story to them when I've finished the novel. I'll need to make some ready money" [stating that she spent the money from the Moroccan book already on her mother's allowance and support for Manchester anarchists.] In 1964 she traveled through the United States, meeting Austin in California, staying with him and traveling in California with him. She wrote a book about the trip, "An American Journey" [Hutchison, 1967], which she dedicated "For Rickey with whom I made some of these travels, and to whom I owe so much - in enduring friendship". Austin was also the dedicatee of her 1951 novel at Sundown the Tiger, "For Rickey Austin, if only because he loves cats, this story of the noblest cat of all, with gratitude and affection.".

About this Item: Routledge & Kegan Paul, London, 1960. Dark Blue Cloth. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 1st Edition. 207 Pp + Publisher's Catalog At Rear, Dated 1959. 1960 Reprint, The Eighth Impression Of The Book First Published 1922, With A Few Corrections In 1933. This Example With The Translation Uniquely Corrected In Pencil Throughout By A Rhodes Scholar Circa 1963-4. The Translation Corrects Obvious, Clear Abscombe's Mistranslations And Omissions To Such A Degree That It Constitutes A New, Corrected Translation. The Translator, William Zaltonoga, A Champion Oxford Boxer While A Rhodes Scholar, Appears To Understand That Wittgenstein Is Discussing How One Thinks About Objects Of One's Own Private Thoughts. Wittgenstein May Be Seen To Make Highly Pointed Conversational Observations Which Tear The Structure Of Consensual Academic Philosophical Thought With Jab After Jab, Demolishing Conventions, Not By Creating A Complete Philosophy But By Identifying How One May Think More Exactly On Matters Of Philosophy And Science And Mathematics, More Exactly Than Historical Consensus Demands, And, By Implication, Showing How Basic Concepts In The Mind Of The Reader Are Woefully Undeveloped If Not Juvenile. The Text In This Translation Makes Such Pointed Observations That It Questions The Basic Intellectual Background And Abilities Of The Intended Audience- Future Educators, Civil Service Managers And Political Policy Makers Educated At Elite Institutions. It Is Understandable How Academics Had Not Previously Bothered With A More Correct Translation, As The Book Is Virtually Unteachable Beyond The Text Itself, Unless One's Teacher Is Smarter Than Wittgenstein, Who Wrote It For The Students. An Important Addition To The Wittgenstein Canon, Both For Identifying The Inexplicable Inadequacies Or Intentional Dumbing-Down By His Translators, And For The Exactness Of The New Translation Offered Printed Here But Entirely Redone By Pears And Mcguiness, Perhaps Not As Well Done As Here By Zaltonaga. [For Another Good Example Of A Post-World War I Mistranslation, Also Somewhat Political, But In This Instance Translation From The Russian, Compare Any English Translation Of Zamyatin's "We" To The 1991 First Translation Into English By A Native Russian Speaker, Raduga Publishers, Moscow, 1991, Where The One Is Almost Unrecognizable From The Other, As Literature. ].

About this Item: Horace Liveright, New York, 1929. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First American Edition. Signed by author Bertrand Russell at top of title page in his characteristically neat hand. Russell himself credited this profoundly important and controversial work for his receipt of the Nobel Prize: "When I was called to Stockholm, at the end of 1950, to receive the Nobel Prize, somewhat to my surprise, for literature, for my book Marriage and Morals. I was apprehensive, since I remembered that, exactly 300 years earlier, Descartes had been called to Scandinavia by Queen Christina in the winter time and had died of the cold." In this book Russell advocates, in the wake of the advent of contraception, for a fundamental reassessment of the institution of marriage, and for rejection of Victorian notions of morality. It led to the infamous court decision that he was "morally unfit". First American edition in original dark navy blue cloth stamped in gilt and red (slight wear and spotting to cloth; minute puncture to spine; tiny ink name on endpaper). PROVENANCE: From the library of noted University of Washington Professor Garland Ethel, one of the subjects of a notorious anti-Communist academic witch hunt in Washington State history, with Ethel's signature on front endpaper. It is worth noting that Washington State was one of the first states to create a legislative Committee on Un-American Activities, and that the University of Washington was one of the first universities to begin investigations.

Original offprint, presentation copy, inscribed by the author in the upper margin of the first leaf, "James Ward from B.R." and with Ward's pencil annotations throughout. James Ward, philosopher and psychologist, was made a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1875, and in 1897 was appointed to the newly founded professorship of mental philosophy and logic. "During the First World War, Ward protested at the dismissal of Bertrand Russell – who later called Ward 'my chief teacher' – from his Trinity lectureship" (ODNB). Russell had been working on trying to articulate "a theory of logic in which there were no classes, or denoting concepts, or even propositional functions, but only complex entities called 'propositions', which were to be analysed into their constituents: individuals and predicates. 'It seems to me broadly possible', he wrote to G. E. Moore on 25 October [1905], 'to maintain that there is nothing complex except propositions.' On 14 December he read to the London Mathematical Society a paper called 'On some difficulties in the theory of transfinite numbers and order types', in which he first publicly suggested the 'no classes' approach to the Paradox. Soon afterwards, the idea that 'propositions' rather than 'classes' should be the primitive notion of his theory of logic was developed into what he called the 'substantiation theory', which he first outlined in an unpublished paper called 'On Substitution'. The theory had something of the beautiful simplicity of the first draft of The Principles of Mathematics, and Russell was, temporarily, quite delighted by it. On the first day of the new year of 1906, he felt able to declare to Lucy Donnelly that: 'My work during 1905 was certainly better in quality and quantity than any I have done in a year before, unless perhaps in 1900. The difficulty which I came upon in 1901 has come out at last, completely and finally, so far as I can judge '" (Monk, p. 185).

About this Item: NP, Richmond, Surrey, 1951. Manuscript. Quarto. 2 Leaves. Original typed letter from and signed by Bertrand Russel to Aubrey Hodes. In this personal letter of one and a half pages written and signed by Bertrand Russell to the fellow thinker and biographer Aubrey Hodes, Russell expresses his sympathy for Hodes' perplexity regarding the problem of war and assures him that he will do his best to convey his thoughts on the subject, not without stressing that the complexity of the matter doesn't allow any feeling of certainty on his part.Russell elaborates on his different positions regarding the two Great Wars. In the first World War Russell was against England's involvement and was imprisoned for his public lectures against inviting the US to enter the war as a British ally. During WWII Russell condoned England's involvement weighing the drastically different states of the world before and during the two wars, acknowledging the true nature of the Nazis as his main reason.Russell goes on to give his opinion on the Arab Israeli situation, "I certainly feel that if I were in your place I should fight if the Arabs made an unprovoked attack". However, he suggests to seek a diplomatic solution in all other cases, fully aware of the complexity of the matter at hand. He closed the letter with remarks on "concientious objection" and lays out an imagined practical scenario as to how how it might play out in society during a major crisis. Stapled and folded to fit envelope and with light creasing at corners. Aubrey Hodes was a journalist and is best known for his friendship with and works on Martin Buber: "Encounter with Martin Buber" and "Martin Buber, an intimate portrait." Hodes was active in the Unity Movement which was dedicated to forging a bi-national Palestinian state representing Jews and Arabs alike. Inspiried by the letter at hand Hodes solicited a comment on the subject from Russell four years later in 1955. Russell's response to that second letter suggets to submit the disputes to the United Nations and work towards asettlemet by mutual arbitration, very much in keeping with our earlier letter. Russell's response appeared on the front page of "Ner" in Tel Aviv in December 1955 (Andrew G. Bone (ed.), Détente or Distruction, 1955-1957, Volume 29, The Collected Papers of Bertrand Russell). The letter published in "Ner" sent from the same address as our letter. Seller Inventory # 42944
