        Turandot Dramma lirico in tre atti e cinque quadri di G. Adami e R. Simoni L'Ultimo duetto e il finale dell' opera sono stati completati da F. Alfano Riduzione per canto e pianoforte di G. Zuccoli (A) Lire 60... [Piano-vocal score]

      Milano: G. Ricordi & C. [PN 119772], 1926. First Edition of the first version of the opera. Hopkinson 12A. Schickling 91.E.1. Turandot, to a libretto by Giuseppe Adami and Renato Simoni after Carlo Gozzi's dramatic fairy-tale, was first performed in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on April 25, 1926. "There is no Italian opera, before Turandot, in which such an organic attempt is made to integrate music and drama... Puccini was now at the height of his powers, inventing colouristic effects which are violent and jewel-like at the same time... Unfortunately Puccini did not complete his last masterpiece, but if he had lived he would have worked to remove every incongruity, as he had done on other occasions. We are left with a splendid and exceptionally extensive 'fragment', produced by an artist at the peak of his creative and intellectual form."

        THE SEVEN PILLARS OF WISDOM A Triumph

      Privately Printed for the Author 1926 - First (or Cranwell) edition, published for subscribers. One of 170 'complete' copies inscribed and initialled by Lawrence "Complete copy, 1.xii.26. T.E.S." on page XIX, with the author's holograph emendation to the attribution of "The gad-fly" plate. As usually issued with the "The Prickly Pear" plate, not called for but not the two Paul Nash illustrations, shown in the list of illustrations. Original dark green morocco by Roger de Coverly, with gilt titles to the spine, gilt filleted borders to covers with roundels to the corners and central knot device of woven strapwork. Raised bands to spine each with five gilt punched dots. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Gilt border to board edges and turn ins. A superb, fine copy, with just a hint of wear to the corners. Internally very fresh. An extremely well preserved example of this monumental work. Housed in a custom chemise and quarter morocco clamshell box. Endpapers by Eric Kennington. Frontispiece of King Feysal by Augustus John, 65 further plates (mostly colour or tinted, four of them double page) and 58 text illustrations by John, Kennington, Williams Roberts, Paul Nash, Blair Hughes-Stanton, William Nicholson and others. Four fold-out colour maps (two maps duplicated). The author's magnum opus and famous account of his part in the Arab Revolt of 1916. The Seven Pillars was originally intended to be a simple account of the travels round seven great cities of the East that Lawrence made in his pursuit of his interest in Middle-Eastern archaeology. This manuscript, written in 1913 was supposedly destroyed at the outbreak of the first world war. With his understanding of the Middle East and the Arabs, Captain Lawrence soon found himself working with military intelligence in Cairo and liaising between the British and Arab forces, which lead to him helping to unite Arab forces in support of the British strategy in the region and ultimately co-ordinating successful campaigns against the Ottoman army. His account, which originally ran to over 400,000 words, was printed by the Oxford Times in 1922 and the positive response given to the text by Lawrence's friends lead him to consider publishing it to a wider audience. Lawrence never considered the text to be suitable for or of interest to the public at large and so made it available only to friends and acquaintances by subscription to this Cranwell edition. Lawrence supervised the production at every stage and extravagantly had each copy bound in a different way by leading fine binders of the day (an act that virtually bankrupted him). Lawrence vowed that the text would not be made publicly available in his lifetime. However, of financial necessity he authorised Jonathan Cape to publish a heavily abridged and sanitised version under the title of Revolt in the Desert in 1927, which stirred public interest to an extent that Cape was induced to publish most of the full text within two months of Lawrence's death in 1935. It became an immediate best seller with 100,000 copies sold in the remainder of that year alone, and has since gone on to be one of the most influential and highly regarded pieces of military and literary prose of the twentieth century. Churchill was of the opinion, "It ranks with the greatest books written in the English language." O'Brian A040 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [PUDOVKIN'S FAMOUS EDITING TECHNIQUES] Kinostsenarii: Teoriya stsenariya [i.e. Film Script: The Theory of a Script]

      Moscow: Kinopechat', 1926. 64 pp. 15x11 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Rear wrapper is detached and the front wrapper is almost detached from the text block, low margin of p.19 is cut off. Otherwise very good. The first book by Vsevolod Pudovkin (1893-1953), a Russian and Soviet film director, screenwriter and actor. Pudovkin, proves just how integral Russian film was to cinema at the beginning of the 20th century by providing his own montage theory, slightly different from that of Eisenstein, that formed the foundation of the classic Hollywood style of editing, which is used in almost every film today. «The foundation of film art is editing.» In this edition he for the first time describes his editing techniques: contrast, parallelism, symbolism, simultaneity, and leit motif. Each of these techniques are in every editor's arsenal and used in virtually every film made around the world. The constructivist design of the wrappers by Piotr Galadzhiev (1900-1971), Soviet actor, set designer and artist who besides participating in theatre productions was also an illustrator for a few film magazines. He also designed covers for the film magazine Kino-Eye and for the popular film library Kinopechat, for which he produced a cover for the 1926 pamphlet on Sergei Eisenstein and his famous film 'Battleship Potemkin'. Worldcat locates copies in Bowdoin College Library, USC Library.

      Machiels S-491, cf. S-490 & S-492; Nijhoff & Kronenberg 3890 (3 imperfect copies), cf. 1926-1928; cf. Bibl. Belg. V, p. 190; Typ. Batava 4704 (1564 ed.). Possibly unrecorded variant of one of the three scarce Antwerp editions published in the same year as the first edition by Joos Lambrecht at Ghent in 1539, of an account of a so-called "Landjuweel", a rhetoricians' festival organized in Ghent in June 1539. They were organized by the chamber "De H. Drievuldicheyt" of Ghent and the 19 participating chambers from different cities each presented a play answering the question: "What is of the most comfort for somebody who is dying?" It was the first time that the texts of the plays were published immediately after the festival. The texts breathe the spirit of the Reformation and the book was banned in 1540.The sequence of the three editions is not certain and the differences are minimal. Our copy has the title as described in Nijhoff & Kronenberg 3890, but contains a variant in the colophon: "xxv. Octob." instead of "xv. Octob.". This variant is described in the literature only as part of the other Antwerp editions, but because the variations in the title concern only abbreviations, many libraries may have catalogued copies improperly. Another edition appeared in 1564 in Wesel by Hans de Braecker.Title-page soiled, slip of paper pasted over an erased library stamp in the lower margin of the second leaf, a few minor dampstains and small wormhole in the last leaves. Good copy.

        1833 - 1873). [Life and Works of Stepan Rudanskiy].

      Ukr. akademiya nauk Kyiv 1926 - Octavo (27.3 x 18 cm), 244 pp., ill. publishers wrappers, uncut and unopened; light marginal waterstain to wrappers, marginal tears. Copy ?232 from the edition of 850. Uncommon publication (limited to 850 copies) featuring works of the celebrated Ukrainian poet. Many of the poems were published here for the first time after having been discovered by the editors in archives. The publication was planned to be issued in 1923 to mark a 50 years anniversary since the poet's death, but because of the lack of funds and technical difficulties it came out only two years later. Stepan Rudanskiy (1833 - 1873) made his name not only as a talented poet and translator of ancient literature, but also as a pioneer in collecting and recording Ukrainian folklore. Large part of Rudanskiy's own oeuvre comprises satirical anti-imperialistic poems that largely follow Taras Shevchenko's traditions. It comes as no surprise that very few of his works passed censorship and were published before the revolution. Rudanskiy's heritage was highly regarded by his contemporaries. Ivan Franko (1856 - 1916), one of the biggest names in the Ukrainian literature, wrote: "Without doubt Rudanskiy is one of the most talented Ukrainian poets that emerged after the death of Shevchenko" ("Do Studiy nad St. Rudanskym", 1892).

        Winnie-the-Pooh

      London: Methuen & Co.,, 1926. Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in green morocco, titles and pictorial centre tools to spine gilt, single rule to boards gilt, multiple pictorial blocks to boards gilt, floral endpapers, with the original endpapers bound in, twin rule to turn-ins, gilt edges. Illustrated by E. H. Shepard. A fine copy. First edition, first impression. After the huge success of When We Were Very Young, first published on 6 November 1924, Milne was asked to contribute a story to the London Evening News. "The Wrong Sort of Bees", published on Christmas Eve 1925, was based on a bedtime story that Milne had told his son Christopher. It starred Christopher's stuffed bear, who had made his first public appearance in the poem "Teddy Bear", published in Punch in 1924 and later in When We Were Very Young. The original toy was a top-of-the-range Alpha Farnell bought at Harrods for Christopher Milne's first birthday, known initially as Edward or Edward Bear, then later rechristened Winnie-the-Pooh (after a favourite bear cub at London zoo). Winnie-the-Pooh was an immediate success and garnered even more enthusiastic reviews than its predecessor, with one critic writing that "When the real Christopher Robin is a little old man, children will find him waiting for them. It is the child's book of the season that seems certain to stay" (Thwaite p. 317). The book was first published in London on 14 October 1926 in an edition of 30,000 regular trade copies.

        Mathematical Investigations in the Theory of Value and Prices

      1926. Signed. FISHER, Irving. Mathematical Investigations in the Theory of Value and Prices. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1926. Octavo, original navy cloth. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $6000.Photo-engraved later printing of Irving Fisher’s groundbreaking doctoral dissertation at Yale, presentation/association copy, with numerous diagrams for the design of a hydraulic mechanism demonstrating equilibrium prices in a multi-market economy, inscribed to a famous economist: “To Mr. O. Gressens with the compliments of Irving Fisher. February, 1927.”While a graduate student at Yale, Fisher “studied mathematics under Josiah Willard Gibbs and political economy with William Graham Sumner. When the time came for a doctoral dissertation, Sumner suggested he combine the two fields, and this was how Fisher came to write one of the earliest works of mathematical economics by an American. The dissertation was published in 1892 in the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences and rapidly won him an international reputation… Fisher’s economic research was marked above all by an ideal of quantification. Political economy, as the discipline had traditionally been known, underwent an important theoretical change in the 1870s and 1880s. The new neoclassical theory identified value with utility, or more precisely with the utility of the last increment of a product consumed. Because utility was defined ‘at the margin,’ this increment could be regarded mathematically as a derivative. That is, the new marginal utility theory permitted the calculus to enter economics as the fundamental basis of theory. This was why Sumner could recommend that Fisher join his study of political economy to that of mathematics. He relied for his dissertation mainly on books by the British economist William Stanley Jevons and by two Germans, Rudolf Auspitz and Richard Lieben” (ANB). Although Fisher was unaware of Walras’s Éléments dÉconomie politique pure (1874) prior to this thesis, he acknowledged the priority of that work on equations of general equilibrium in his preface, as well as the importance of Edgeworth’s Mathematical Psychics on the subject of utility surfaces. It is generally agreed that “although only a student, Fisher had independently developed a theory of general economic equilibrium that was identical to part of Walras’s and included the concept of indifference surface, one of the fundamental bases of modern economic theory” (IESS V:477).In his dissertation, Fisher delineates the machine he constructed, a “hydraulic-mechanical analogue model of a general equilibrium system, replete with cisterns, valves, levers, balances and camps. Thus could he display physically how a shock to demand or supply in one of ten interrelated markets altered prices and quantities in all markets and changes the incomes and consumption bundles on the various consumers. The model is described in detail in the book; unfortunately both the original model and a second one constructed in 1925 have been lost to posterity” (The New Palgrave II). Fisher continued at Yale as a distinguished and popular professor until his retirement in 1935. His “impatience and opportunity” theory on interest was introduced in The Rate of Interest (1907), later revised and enlarged by him in The Theory of Interest (1930). Other major works include: The Purchasing Power of Money (1911), and the monumental The Making of Index Numbers (1922). Joseph Schumpeter “predicted in 1948 that Irving Fisher’s ‘name will stand in history principally as this country’s greatest scientific economist” (ANB). The first edition of this work was published in the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1892 and subsequently went out of print. This photo-engraved reprint edition was published in 1925 in respond to demand; this is the second printing of that edition. This presentation/association copy is inscribed to statistician/economist Otto Gressens. Gressens wrote “On the Measurement of Seasonal Variations” (Journal of the American Statistical Association, June 1926, pp. 203-10), as well as “The Validity of Correlation in Time Sequences and a New Coefficient of Similarity” (with E.D. Mouzon, Jr., ibid, Dec. 1927, pp. 483-92). The latter gave birth to a widely used concept known as the Gressen and Mouzons Coefficient.Only slightest rubbing and soiling to cloth. A most desirable inscribed presentation/association copy in near-fine condition.

        MILÙ, eigentlich Maria de Lurdes de Almeida Lemos, (* 24. April 1926 in Lissabon, Portugal ? 5. November 2008 in Cascais, Portugal) war eine portugiesische Schauspielerin und Sängerin original signiertes Foto gewidmet original autographed photo dedicated

      11,7 X 16 cm tadelloser ZustandMilú, eigentlich Maria de Lurdes de Almeida Lemos, (* 24. April 1926 in Lissabon, Portugal ? 5. November 2008 in Cascais, Portugal) war eine portugiesische Schauspielerin und Sängerin Nach kleineren Auftritten bereits mit Sieben sang sie im Alter von 10 Jahren erstmals alleine im Radio, das Lied O amor é cego e vê (dt.: Die Liebe ist blind und sieht), aus dem Film Bocage (1936). 1938 stand sie erstmals sowohl auf der Theaterbühne, in einem populären Kinderstück im Teatro Éden, als auch vor der Filmkamera, in Chianca de Garcias Aldeia da Roupa Branca (dt.: Dorf der weißen Wäsche), als Zwölfjährige an der Seite von Beatriz Costa. Im staatlichen Rundfunk Emissora Nacional trat sie nun regelmäßig auf, sowohl mit Liedern als auch mit Rezitationen und in Hörstücken.Auf Grund ihres Aussehens, dass dem Schönheitsideal der Zeit entsprach, engagierte der ehemalige UFA-Schauspieler Arthur Duarte 1943 die 17-jährige Milú für seinen Film O Costa do Castelo (dt.: Der Costa vom Castelo-Viertel), wo sie eine Hauptrolle an der Seite von António Silva bekam. Der Film wurde ein bis heute populärer Kassenschlager, und machte auch Milú zum Star, die im Film ihre zwei bekanntesten Lieder sang, Minha Casinha (dt.: Mein trautes Heim) und Cantiga da Rua (dt.: Straßenlied). Noch 1943 gab sie bekannt, dass sie heiraten und sich nach ihren spanischen Filmengagements aus dem Showgeschäft zurückziehen werde, was eine Welle von Sympathiebekundungen und Aufforderungen, nicht aufzuhören, nach sich zog. 1946, nach ihrer Scheidung, nahm sie wieder Filmrollen an. In der Folge nahm sie zahlreiche Schallplatten für Valentim de Carvalho auf, und bekam Filmrollen in portugiesischen und spanischen Produktionen. Neben der populären Beatriz Costa, und zusammen mit Maria Eugénia, war Milú einer der beliebtesten weiblichen Stars des Portugiesischen Films der 1940er und 50er Jahre. Sie galt als Schönheits-Ikone und zierte zahlreiche zeitgenössischen Titelblätter in Portugal. Auch in zahlreichen Stücken des Revue-Theaters stand sie auf der Bühne, darunter in Agora é que são elas in Lissabon 1953, an der Seite von Raul Solnado und João Villaret 1954 in Não Faças Ondas (dt.: Mache keine Wellen), und 1960 in Ven y Ven in Barcelona.[1][2]Die seit den frühen 50er Jahren wiederkehrenden Angebote aus Hollywood, die sie ausschlug, fanden ein Ende, als sie 1960 erneut heiratete, und in die brasilianische Heimat ihres Mannes zog. Von 1960 bis 1968 lebte sie in Brasilien, wo sie bis auf einige Fernsehauftritte und gelegentliche Schallplattenaufnahmen nicht öffentlich in Erscheinung trat. Nach ihrer Rückkehr drehte sie 1969 mit dem populären Sänger und Schauspieler António Calvário, bevor sie für José Fonseca e Costas Erfolgsfilm Kilas, o Mau da Fita (dt.: Kilas, der Böse des Streifens) ein letztes Mal vor der Filmkamera stand.[3]Sie ist bis heute eines der bekanntesten Gesichter der Hochphase des Portugiesischen Films der 1940er Jahre. Auch die von ihr gesungenen Lieder wurden bekannte Schlager in Portugal, die bis heute ähnlich populär wie die Filme blieben. So hat beispielsweise die Band Peste & Sida auf ihrem Album Eles andam aí! (1992) eine Version des bekannten Liedes Cantiga da Rua aus dem Film O Costa do Castelo (1943) aufgenommen. Zuvor hatten Xutos & Pontapés mit ihrer Version von Minha Casinha 1987 bereits Verkaufsrekorde gebrochen: über 40 Jahre nachdem Milú das Lied gesungen hatte, wurde die Band nach der, als "7 Single" vermarkteten Single zur erfolgreichsten Band in der portugiesischen Geschichte.2007 wurde Milú von Präsident Cavaco Silva der Orden des heiligen Jakob vom Schwert (Ordem de Sant'Iago da Espada) verliehen.Nachdem sie zuletzt ihr Augenlicht weitgehend eingebüßt hatte, litt sie in ihren letzten Tagen 2008 an Entzündungen der Atemwege, an denen sie am 5. November 2008 starb. (Quelle: Wikipedia) Lager 1
