Volume one is signed, “To Benoit and Aliette To old friends with best wishes Martin S. June 7, 2000. P.S. You made an error. You were going to get a free copy- if need you can assign it.” Volume 2 is inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “To Benoit and Aliette To old friends with best wishes Martin Shubik June 7, 2000.” Mandelbrot writes, “The indispensable intermediary who started the process that led me to Yale was a self-described ‘institutional economist’ Martin Shubik. We had met while I was John Von Neumann’s postdoc at the Institute For Advanced Study and he was at Princeton University with Oskar Morgenstern, Johnny’s co-author of the book Theory of Games and Economic Behavior. For a short period in the sixties, we were colleagues at IBM research, but he soon left for Yale. Out of the blue, Shubik called me when I was in transit to Harvard in 1964 and again early in 1967. The first time, I must have rebuffed him. The second time I must have sounded more open. Shortly afterward, a call from the mathematics chairman, Ronald Raphael Coifman” (The Fractalist pp. 279-80). Both volumes are fine in near fine dust jackets with light shelf wear. A nice association.
