        Album di fotografie originali. Torino, Sestri Levante, Cereseto 1922-1924

      , , . Molto Buono (Very Good). Album di 160 fotografie originali scattate tra il 1922 e il 1924 a Torino, Sestri Levante e Cereseto. Sono anni importanti per l'avvicinamento alla danza moderna di Cesarina Gualino. Nel 1921 si iscrisse infatti con Bella Hutter al collegio ginnico La Palestra del capitano di marina Georges Hébert situato sulle coste della Normandia, a Deauville, dove tornerà anche nel 1922, e compì alcuni soggiorni a Parigi alla scuola di Jeanne Ronsay per continuare l'addestramento e lo studio della danza e della ritmica. Nelle fotografie Cesarina è con le amiche russe danzatrici Bella e Raja Markman e Vitja Gourevitch, vestite con  leggere tuniche e sandali alla greca (Cesarina in particolare indossa una tunica - in mostra - realizzata da Raymond Duncan, fratello di Isadora). In alcuni degli scatti compaiono anche l'amica Jessie Boswell, che visse a casa Gualino dal 1914 fino al 1928, i danzatori Clotlde e Alexandre Sakharoff, la musicista e teosofa Marcelle de Manziarly e l'attrice Emma Gramatica. . Molto Buono (Very Good). . Da "Cesarina Gualino e i suoi amici" a cura di Maurizio Fagiolo Dell'Arco e Beatrice Marconi: "Cesarina nasce alla danza moderna, libera (Ausdruckstanz per i tedeschi) e si iscrive con Bella al collegio ginnico del capitano di marina Georges Hébert, La Palestra, a Deauville in Normandia, dove si formano molte ballerine. In un album intero di fotografie, Cesarina (è sempre lei la fotografa) racconta la vita di questo particolare addestramento nel giugno del 1921: le tende da campeggio in cui dormono le allieve, gli esercizi ginnici (tra cui il tiro con l'arco), le danze (accompagnate dal suono dell'arpa), tutto rigorosamente all'aria aperta, abbigliate esclusivamente con la tunica greca e il nastro sulla fronte, allegre, determinate, forse dimentiche (per una volta) di mariti e figlie. Nel giugno 1922 Cesarina è nuovamente a Deauville ma mentre Bella, Raja e Vitia rimangono alcuni mesi ancora in Normandia per completare la loro formazione, Cesarina ritorna a Torino e pur continuando lo studio della danza, della ritmica, della composizione musicale, decide di dedicarsi anche alla diffusione, in Italia, di questa particolare e nuova espressione artistica".

        Une cité moderne

      Parigi: Charles Massin, , 1922. Fogli sciolti in cartelletta (loose as issued in original portfolio). Ottimo (Fine). Dessins de Rob Mallet-Stevens architecte. Préface de Frantz Jourdain. 32 planches en couleur reproduisant des dessins de Mallet-Stevens datés 1917 et 1921 (cm 22,5x32,5 - 32,5x22,5). En feuilles, portefeuille de l'éditeur. Cm 33,5x24. pp. 8+ 32 tavole. Ottimo (Fine). . Studiò all'École spéciale d'architecture, interessandosi contemporaneamente all'opera di H. Hoffmann (l'architetto viennese costruì a Bruxelles la casa Stoclet per lo zio) e di R. Mackintosh. Al Salon d'automne del 1912, dove espose i suoi primi progetti (soprattutto arredamenti), ebbe modo di conoscere P. Chareau e altri artisti, animati dallo stesso intento di rinnovamento che porterà alla costituzione nel 1929 dell'Union des artistes modernes. I suoi progetti per "Une cité moderne" (1922) dettero l'avvio a un approfondimento rivelatore dell'attenzione per la poetica di De Stijl e per le inedite possibilità offerte dal cemento come creatore di un nuovo stile. Dalla villa de Noailles a Hyères (1923), scelta da Man Ray per girarvi il cortometraggio "Les Mystères du Chateau du dé" (1928), ai padiglioni per l'esposizione delle arti decorative del 1925, alla strada che porta il suo stesso nome (1926-27), alla caserma dei pompieri di rue Mesnil (1936), ai padiglioni per l'esposizione di Parigi del 1937, l'opera di M.-S. è tra le testimonianze più interessanti del movimento moderno. Per la sua attività di scenografo, esemplare è la sua partecipazione al film l'"Inhumaine" (1923) di M. L'Herbier, a fianco di F. Leger, Chareau, D. Milhaud. Dal 1930 fu nel comitato direttivo de "L'architecture d'aujourd'hui".

        The Theory of Marginal Value [ From Joseph Schumpeter's library ]

      George Routledge & Sons 1922 - 8vo, full editor cloth, George Routledge & Sons, Ltd, 1922, VIII-351 pp. et 3 ff. With a manuscript annotation : "Ce livre appartient à J. Schumpeter" [ trad. : this book belongs to J. Schumpeter ]. From Georges-Henri Bousquet's library. Bousquet (1900-1928) was a french economist, disciple and friend of both Vilfredo Pareto and Joseph Schumpeter.Les deux hommes se connaissaient personnellement depuis une première rencontre à Vienne en septembre 1923. A cette époque, G.-H. Bousquet fut présenté à Joseph Schumpeter, à Vienne, par Paul Lazarsfeld. Comme Bousquet le raconte lui-même : "A ce moment, Schumpeter avait 40 ans. Il était alors totalement ignoré en France, mais connu aux Etats-Unis où il avait été invité à professer quelque temps, et en Angleterre, où il avait eu également l'occasion de se faire entendre". Les deux hommes, qui deviendront amis, se rencontreront beaucoup plus longuement en 1933-1934 à Harvard, où Schumpeter sera devenu professeur. Georges Bousquet y effectuera en effet un long séjour de recherche, financé par la fondation Rockfeller. Toute sa carrière, Georges Bousquet sera fasciné par l'oeuvre de Schumpeter, qu'il fera notamment découvrir, tant par ses articles que par les discussions, à l'économiste François Perroux. On peut signaler que le Professeur Bousquet est l'un des rares économistes français contemporains à être plusieurs fois cité dans la monumentale Histoire de l’Analyse Economique écrite par Joseph Schumpeter à la fin de sa vie.

        Original three-quarter length drawing of Koussevitzky conducting by the noted French artist Abel Jules Faivre (1867-1945)

      ?Paris 1922 - Sheet size ca. 270 x 210 mm. Executed in black, blue, red, and white crayon and chalk on heavy tan wove paper. Signed by the artist at lower right, with a preparatory sketch (head only) in red chalk at upper right. Koussevitzky is depicted in formal dress with baton in hand. Minor wear to lower right corner; slightly browned; several small pinholes to blank areas; light impression of former mat to extreme edges. "[Koussevitzky] was one of three glamorous iconic maestros who dominated American symphonic culture after World War I. Though he never attained the national renown of Arturo Toscanini or Leopold Stokowski, he far surpassed both as an influential advocate of American music. And neither Toscanini nor Stokowski left as tangible a legacy as Koussevitzky's Tanglewood. Having entered the Moscow Philharmonic Music School at 14, he chose the double bass as one of three instruments for which open scholarships were available. He joined the double basses of the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra six years later, and began touring as a double bass virtuoso two years after that. [He] came to the United States in 1924 to suceed Pierre Monteux as conductor of the Boston SO. The capstone of Koussevitzky's mission was the Berkshire Music Center at Tanglewood. The Boston SO gave summer concerts in the Berkshires beginning in 1936. Koussevitzky's conducting students included Leonard Bernstein and Lukas Foss." Joseph Horowitz in Grove Music Online.Faivre, a painter, illustrator, and cartoonist, was particularly well-known for the posters he designed during World War I as well as for his portraits and caricatures. The present drawing was most probably executed in Paris ca. 1921-1922 where the conductor organized the Concerts Koussevitzky, presenting new works by Stravinsky, Prokofiev, and Ravel.

        Against the Grain.

      New York: Lieber & Lewis,, 1922. From the French by John Howard. Introduction by Havelock Ellis. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt, publisher's device in blind to rear cover. In the dust jacket. Pencilled ownership inscription on front free endpaper. Spine ends and top corner of front cover bumped, small chip to head of spine, light marking to covers. A very good copy in the dust jacket, a little soiled, spine panel faded and slightly chipped at extremities. First edition in English, first impression, with the rare dust jacket. Against the Grain was originally published in French in 1884 under the title À Rebours. It became prominent in Britain after it was discovered that a passage in Oscar Wilde's Dorian Gray, in which a licentious book has a powerful effect on the protagonist, referred to Huysmans's work - it is this very passage that is excerpted on the front panel of the dust jacket here. The plot follows a reclusive aesthete who seeks to abandon degenerate society and retreat into his own artistic world. This edition was somewhat abridged, and the first full English translation was not published until 1926.

        Tapuscrit signé d'une nouvelle de Colette.

      - 1 tapuscrit signé avec quelques corrections autographes 4 In-4 [1922] bon Tapuscrit signé, avec quelques corrections et envoi autographe signé, d'une nouvelle de Colette, intitulée "La Main". Publiée pour la première fois dans Le Matin du 27 mai 1922, puis reprise dans La Femme cachée (Flammarion, 1923), elle est une métaphore sur les désillusions de l'amour et la soumission de la femme mariée. Une jeune mariée, dont le mari s'est assoupi sur son épaule, voit son sentiment amoureux se transformer sous le regard qu'elle porte à sa main. « [.] Un tressaillement parcourut le corps endormi qui reposait près d'elle, et elle resserra son bras gauche autour du cou de son mari, avec l'autorité charmante des êtres faibles. Il ne s'éveilla pas [.]. La lumière, glissant sous les bords d'une ombrelle de cristal bleuâtre, butait contre cette main et rendait sensible les moindres reliefs de sa peau, exagérait les noeuds puissants des phalanges, et les veines que la compression du bras engorgeait. Quelques poils roux, à la base des doigts, se courbaient tous dans le même sens, comme des épis sous le vent, et les ongles plats, dont le polissoir n'effaçait pas les cannelures, brillaient, enduits de vernis rosés [.]. Le dormeur ne s'éveilla pas, mais la main, offensée, se souleva, se crispa en forme de crabe et attendit, prête au combat. Le son déchirant décrut et la main, détendue peu à peu, laissa retomber ses pinces, devint une bête molle, pliée de travers, agitée de sursauts faibles qui ressemblaient à une agonie [.]. Elle tressaillit et sentit sa chair se hérisser, en haut des bras et le long du dos. –oh ! non. non. Puis elle cacha sa peur, se dompta courageusement, et commençant sa vie de duplicité, de résignation, de diplomatie délicate, elle se pencha, et baisa humblement la main monstrueuse ».

        The Five Jars

      London: Edward Arnold, 1922. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. pp. 172, with 7 full page illustrations by Gilbert James. Publisher's orange cloth, with titles printed in black. Internally clean and bright. Sharp and tight, essentially a fine copy with some spotting to the page edges and a trifle of bumping and shelfwear. In a very sharp, clean example of the scarce dustwrapper, one significant corner of loss to the upper right front panel, repaired at some point, otherwise minor wear and chipping to the extremities and some pale pink staining and discolouration to the outer edge of the rear panel. Strong, handsome and very seldom seen. Ostensibly a children's book from this distinguished and highly influential writer of chilling stories of the supernatural, this is the collection of stories that James would have read aloud in his rooms to some of his charges at Eton School, including fledgling wordsmiths George Orwell and Ian Fleming.

        Upon The Tenth Anniveresary Of JFK's Death, Five Prominent Americans Recollect November 22, 1963 In An Archive Of Letters To The Day Kennedy Was Shot Author And Journalist Jim Bishop

      JACK ANDERSON (1922-2005). Anderson was a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist. JAMES "JIM" BISHOP (1907-1987). Bishop was an American journalist and author of The Day Lincoln Was Shot and The Day Kennedy Was Shot. BILLY GRAHAM (b. 1918). Graham is a Southern Baptist minister well-known for his evangelical television and radio shows. ARTHUR KROCK (1886-1974). Krock was an influential Washington D.C. journalist; he was sometimes called "the Dean of Washington newsmen". ROY WILKINS (1901-1981). Wilkins was a civil rights activist and executive director of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. ANDY WILLIAMS (1927-2012). Williams was a successful musician and television host. Archive. Five pieces. 1973. An archive of five letters sent to journalist Jim Bishop. The letters recount the writers' memories of November 22, 1963 - the day that John F. Kennedy was assassinated. All five recollections are by prominent Americans, many of whom knew Kennedy personally. Bishop used their stories for his November 1973 article in Ladies' Home Journal, "November 22, 1963: the End of Camelot", which commemorated the ten-year anniversary of Kennedy's assassination. These letters provide a compelling account of the shock and grief that was felt as news of Kennedy's death spread across the nation. The majority of the archive is in fine condition. TDS. 2pgs. April 18, 1973. Washington D.C. A typed statement signed "Arthur Krock". "There is a permanent, floating dice-game in the second floor bar of The Metropolitan Club in which for years I have engaged, the eventual loser paying for the drinks. I was thus occupied, about 1:32 p.m. Eastern Standard time, on November 22, 1963, when I was called to the telephone. The call was from the Washington Bureau of The New York Times, to inform me that President Kennedy had been shot while riding in a motorcade in Dallas. I immediately left for the Bureau, which then was just across Farragut Square from the Club. There the A.P. and U.P.I. tickers were reeling off bulletins every few seconds. For some reason I cannot analyze I became convinced before the announcement of his death at 2:00 p.m., that Kennedy would not survive. My immediate thoughts were conventional - personal grief for one I had known well from his boyhood, and for his young wife; grief for the continuous failure of an advanced democracy to extirpate in its citizens the resort to anarchy as a solution of political controversy - a trait which had violently ended the lives of three Presidents among the 35 who had preceded Kennedy. Then the first and intimate shock widened in my consciousness to such thoughts as these: Will the tragic event further disunify the American people and evoke a resort to the streets for blind reprisal in which the innocent will suffer and government be paralyzed? Or will, as in all but one previous instances of the succession of a murdered President, the continuum of the Presidency (as provided by Sec. 5, Article II of the Constitution) be smooth and uncontested? (The exception was the succession of Vice President Andrew Johnson, who was harassed and hounded by the Republican radicals in Congress, viciously attacked by large sections of the population and survived removal by impeachment by only one Senate vote.) My opinion that the constitutional procedure would be carried out with the full support of the people was fortified by the general estimate at the time that Lyndon B. Johnson was the most skilled politician in the country in the arts of government. And since, there was ample evidence that his choice as President Kennedy's running-mate in 1960 had saved the ticket from defeat, I took it as a certainty that he could count on the full cooperation of the Democratic party in Congress and in the country. Arthur Krock". In fine condition. TLS. 1pg. April 26, 1973. New York. A typed letter signed "Roy Wilkins" on NAACP letterhead with the organization's logo on the front and a listing of all its officers and committee members on the verso. "Dear Mr. Bishop: This will acknowledge your recent letter asking me to recall where I was when I first heard of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. I was on the elevator in our office en route to lunch when one of the passengers stated that President Kennedy had been shot. To this I responded, 'It can't be. He is speaking in Texas.' The passenger reiterated, 'That is where he was when he was shot.' When I reached the sidewalk, people were clustered around autos which had stopped so that they could hear the news on the radios. It was at that point that I heard the bulletin that the President had been mortally wounded. My reaction was one of profound shock and very deep sorrow. I hope that this answers your questions satisfactorily. With best wishes, I am Sincerely, Roy Wilkins". The letter is in fine condition and with the original mailing envelope. TDS. 2pgs. N.d. [c. May 8, 1973]. N.p. [probably Montreat, North Carolina]. A typed statement with a short autograph postscript, signed "BG". Evangelist Billy Graham gives a two-page account of his memories of JFK's death. "I feel that the strangeness of November 22, 1963, will linger in my mind forever. The week prior to the President's trip to Dallas I received a telephone call from a prominent Texan. He knew that I was to play golf with Senator George Smathers and the President in Florida. My Texas friend was alarmed by the hostile feelings in Texas for President Kennedy and doubted the wisdom of his visit but was in no position to call it off. After mediating on what he had told me I felt an inner prompting to call Senator George Smathers and urge him to request the President not go to Texas at this time. I don't know how to explain, but I had a clear feeling of impending gloom and made an earnest effort to communicate to the President through Senator Smathers. I was unable to reach the Senator by telephone and he had assumed that my call to him related to the proposed golf game and instead of returning my call, sent a telegram to me saying that the golf game with the President in Florida had to be called off. I told this experience to the pastor of the church where I worship, and to my colleague T. W.Wilson, on Monday or Tuesday before the Friday of November 22, and they can both attest to this. The morning of Friday, November 22, I met with several of my associates to discuss the broadcast ministry of our Association. Following our meeting that Friday morning we had lunch and went to the Black Mountain Golf Course to play nine holes of golf. We were on the first tee and had just completed our drives when the professional of the course came out to tell me that Dr. Calvin Thielman, the Pastor of the Montreat Church, had called to tell me that the President had been shot in Dallas and had suggested that I go to out local radio station and go on the air and pray for our country. We left the golf course immediately and went to the radio station to follow the news that was coming on the two wire service machines and on the Mutual Radio Network line. By the time the announcement of the President's death had been made, Calvin Thielman had arrived at the radio station. He had known Vice President Johnson from his boyhood in Texas. The two of us went into one of the sound-proof studios and we talked together about the burden now on the shoulders of the new President. We went on the air and I read from the 46th Psalm and from II Chronicles 2:7-12, and I prayed for President Kennedy's family and for the new President and the sad way in which his new responsibilities came upon him. One of the radio technicians turned on the tape recorder and those prayers and comments were recorded (and I still have that tape in my files). Another note of interest is that when President Johnson requested me to speak at the service of his Inauguration as President January 20, 1965, I spoke from that same text in II Chronicles 2:20. After the church service President Johnson returned to the White House and amended his Inaugural Address to conclude as follows: 'For myself, I ask only in the words of an ancient leader: 'Give me now wisdom and knowledge that I may go out and come in before their people; for who can judge this, Thy people, that is so great?' Jim - This should due. BG". George Smathers (1913-2007) was a long-time Democratic Senator from Florida and a good friend of JFK. Graham's statement is in very good condition with minor foxing. It is accompanied by a cover letter from Graham's secretary, on "The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association" letterhead and in good condition. TLS. 1pg. June 13, 1973. Washington D.C. A typed letter signed "Jack" on Jack Anderson's personal stationery. "Dear Jim: The assassination of President Kennedy caught me in the middle of a story conference with the editor of Parade magazine, Jess Gorkin. We had taken a room in the Madison Hotel so we could discuss story ideas in comfort and privacy. A telephone call gave us the astonishing report that the President had been shot. We couldn't believe it, but turned on the television set to check. From that moment, we forgot about story ideas and watched the television screen in horror. I confess to a surge of anger against the hate fanatics in Texas. I remember commenting that Dallas' Love Field was misnamed. John F. Kennedy had been a personal friend since he arrived in Washington as a Congressman. We both had often recalled that I was the first Washington correspondent he met after his arrival in the House. So I watched the tragedy unfold on television with a deep sense of personal anguish. With best wishes, Cordially, Jack". In fine condition with two tiny holes from a staple, and including the original mailing envelope. TLS. 1pg. June 29, 1973. N.p. A typed letter signed "Best, Andy". "Of course I remember that day. Too well. I was flying from Los Angeles to Chicago with Hank Mancini and the Osmond Brothers for a concert. It was a regular commercial jet, and shortly before we landed there was a rumor circulating around the airplane - I guess from the flight crew - that President Kennedy had been shot. I discounted it as crazy. Nobody could be sure on the plane. When we landed the passengers tumbled out and began questioning the skycaps and other airport personnel on the ground, hoping that what we'd heard in the air was just an irresponsible rumble. I rushed to a man and asked him if it was true. He nodded yes, and I was paralyzed. Then I looked around and saw people were crying and collecting around television sets in lounges, bars and restaurants. I kept thinking there was no way John F. Kennedy could die. But as the reports came in there was a great feelings of despair and futility. People began muttering to themselves. Some of us went up to the VIP lounge and stayed there until the final reports came in confirming the fact the President had been assassinated. When I got to my hotel I watched the tube for two straight days. The concert was postponed for two days. I didn't want to do it at all, but when we got on stage I realized the public needed something to take its mind off the tragedy. They had to get away from the horror they'd been watching on television. I'd met the President two or three times and had shaken his hand. But like December 7, I'll always remember that day. Best, Andy". In fine condition.
