Hunt, Frederick V.  
Electroacoustics -- the analysis of transduction, and its historical background

Publisher: Harvard University Press, Cambridge MA, John Wiley & Sons NY, 1954, first edition; 260 pages, index, footnotes, diagrams.
Good+ to very good overall, dark blue hardcover, no dustjacket; title on spine a bit rubbed, light shelfwear at spine ends and tips; binding sound and secure but with a bit of 'play'; pages are clean and unmarkedIncludes 'a long introduction devoted to the placement of electroacoustical transduction in its proper historical setting relative to the allied arts and to the basic sciences from which it derives..' (from the Preface) Contents -- Historical Context; Electromechanical coupling - general; Reciprocity and Symmetry considerations in Electromechanical coupling; Electrical-Impedance Analysis of Transducer Performance; Moving-Conductor (Dynamic) Transducer systems; Electrostatic Transducer Systems; Moving-Armature (Magnetic) Transducer systems; Appendices -- dimensions and units; conversion charts; Index of names; index of subjectsA chatty style and well-packed with names, facts, dates and observations. A sample -- 'The American Bell Telephone Company attacked this problem in an obvious and forthright way -- Edison was already in the enemy's camp, but they could, and did, promptly acquire both Berliner's patents and his services; and they assigned him at once to the task of removing the instability that had already cropped up in the Blake transmitters. by a technical tour de force of considerable distinction, Berliner carried out this assignment within six weeks, not only solving the problem of manufacturability, but also that of making the performance of the modified Blake transmitter surpass that of the contemporary Edison instruments. When Berliner joined forces with Bell, he also brought with him his patent on the induction coil for use in conjunction with a low-resistance transmitter, and this instrument, together with the Blake-Berliner transmitter was sufficient to make secure for nearly two decades the American Bell Telephone Company's position of leadership in the rapidly expanding field of telephony.' (from the book's first chapter) Additional pictures available

Kostelanetz, Richard, selected and introduced by  
John Cage, Writer -- previously uncollected pieces
 Picture
Publisher: Limelight Editions, NY 1993, stated first edition, 281 pages.
Very Good overall, illustrated glossy coated cardstock covers, softcover, bump at upper rear spine end, the binding is secure and tight, the pages clean and unmarked

An essential part of the music and art legacy that John Cage leaves us... are the writings gathered here, which span more than fifty years of Cagean thought and creativity... his response to the music of others, his ideas about art, film, and dane; and in An Autobiographical Statement - his reflections on his own life, career, and self-fulfillment...' (from the rear cover)

Also included are the texts of lectures, and of crucial importance to an appreciation of his music, Cage's notes on the performance of his compositions...

It is these moments of completeness that music can give, providing one can concentrate one's mind on it, that is, give one's self in return to the music, that are such deep pleasure, and that is why we love the art (John Cage, from the book)
