      15 x 21,5 cm tadelloser Zustand - mint conditionLifelong authenticity guarantee! Lebenslange Echtheitsgarantie!Grace Patricia Kelly (* 12. November 1929 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania ? 14. September 1982 in Monaco) war eine US-amerikanische Filmschauspielerin und Oscar-Preisträgerin. Infolge der Hochzeit mit Fürst Rainier III. von Monaco im Jahr 1956 änderte sich ihr Name mit dem neuen Titel in Princesse Grace de Monaco beziehungsweise Grace Patricia Grimaldi. Im deutschen Sprachraum ist die Bezeichnung Fürstin Gracia Patricia von Monaco oder verkürzt Gracia Patricia üblich.Von August 1950 bis März 1956 wirkte Grace Kelly in insgesamt elf Spielfilmen mit, nachdem sie bereits Schauspielerfahrungen am Theater gesammelt hatte. Erste Erfolge feierte sie 1952 an der Seite von Gary Cooper im Western Zwölf Uhr mittags und 1953 mit Clark Gable in Mogambo, für den sie ein Jahr später den Golden Globe als beste Nebendarstellerin erhielt. Die Charakterrolle der Georgie Elgin im Filmdrama Ein Mädchen vom Lande brachte ihr 1955 den Oscar als beste Hauptdarstellerin ein. Auf dem Höhepunkt ihrer Karriere hatte sie zudem Hauptrollen in drei Spielfilmen unter der Regie von Alfred Hitchcock, von denen der 1954 gedrehte Thriller Das Fenster zum Hof mit James Stewart zu den bedeutendsten Werken der Filmgeschichte zählt. Darüber hinaus trat sie zwischen 1948 und 1954 in mehr als 40 Fernsehproduktionen auf.1956 beendete Grace Kelly mit dem Musicalfilm Die oberen Zehntausend ihre Arbeit als Filmschauspielerin und heiratete Fürst Rainier III. von Monaco, den sie ein Jahr zuvor anlässlich der Filmfestspiele von Cannes kennengelernt hatte. Aus der Ehe gingen die Kinder Caroline, Albert und Stéphanie hervor. Im Rahmen ihrer Pflichten als Landesmutter widmete sie sich fortan repräsentativen und wohltätigen Aufgaben. Zwei Monate vor ihrem 53. Geburtstag starb sie an den Folgen eines Autounfalles, der sich im Beisein ihrer jüngsten Tochter Stéphanie in der Nähe von Monaco ereignete.Grace Kelly war für ihr stilsicheres Auftreten bekannt und setzte weltweit modische Trends. Ihre Präsenz im Fürstentum verhalf Monaco zu neuem Ansehen und wirtschaftlichem Aufschwung. Das American Film Institute wählte sie auf Platz 13 der 25 größten weiblichen amerikanischen Filmstars aller Zeiten.[1](Quelle: Wikipedia) Lager 1

        Autograph letter signed to G. M. Trevelyan.

      Trinity College, Cambridge: 18 October 1929 - Single leaf, autograph letter on both sides. Small tear to left margin, a few very faint marks and a crease, very good condition. The poet and classicist A. E. Housman here sends the Cambridge historian G. M. Trevelyan (1876-1962) a parody he had written on Erasmus Darwin (not included here - beginning "See on the cliff fair Adjectiva stand", published in Poems, 1997). He had included the parody in a paper on Darwin which he read to the University College London Literary Society March 1899, and later at Eton in 1922. He excuses Trevelyan's ignorance thitherto of it, "Your ignorance must be shared by most of the world, excerpt privileged audiences at University College and Eton" since "I have always refused to let my parody be printed, because it is no rival to the Anti-Jacobin's, which is not merely amusing but subtle and profound." The Anti-Jacobin parody is George Canning's "The Loves of the Triangles" (published in The Anti-Jacobin Review, 1789), a parody of Erasmus Darwin's The Loves of the Plants (1789 - the second part of The Botanic Garden). He further notes "The simile" (presumably something in the parody) "obeys [Erasmus] Darwin's declared principle that similes ought not to be like". George Macaulay Trevelyan was once one of the most widely read historians in the world, and still respected, in the words of historian J. H. Plumb, as "the poet of English history" for his "skills of literary craftsmanship". He was a Fellow of Trinity College 1898-1903, and returned to Cambridge as Regius Professor of History 1927-43. It is early in this period that this piece of Housman correspondence appears. He later served as Master of Trinity 1940-51. Trevelyan later lectured on Housman's poetry. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

      Bristol: Printed for Douglas Cleverdon at the Fanfare Press,, 1929. With ten engravings on copper. Quarto. Original white cloth-backed grey-blue boards, titles to spine gilt, fore and bottom edges uncut. 10 copper engravings. Bottom corners bumped, faint fading around board edges, but an exceptional copy in excellent condition. First Jones edition, first impression, special unnumbered presentation copy inscribed by the printer Ernest Ingham, "for presentation to my Mother & Father, E. Ingham, The Fanfare Press, Aug 22, 1929" on the colophon, and again "To Father & Mother from Ernest 1929" on the front free endpaper. Ingham, in the same year as this book's production, also worked with Cleverdon to print Eric Gill's first collection, Engravings. Like David Jones Ingham had fought in the First World War. He became chairman of the Fanfare Press, and was awarded an OBE in 1952. This copy is also signed on the colophon, on the same date, by the publisher Douglas Cleverdon (1903-87), who produced numerous finely designed and printed books, of which this is one of the first. Cleverdon later became a prolific producer for BBC Radio, and worked again with David Jones in 1948 to produce, with Dylan Thomas and Richard Burton, the radio version of Jones's poem In Parenthesis (a newspaper clipping advertising which is laid in here). He also produced the first radio play of Under Milk Wood in 1954, again with Richard Burton. Laid in is an autograph letter signed from Cleverdon, dated 1984, to the book's later owner Raymond Lister (1919-2001 - artist, author and authority on William Blake and Samuel Palmer). In the letter Cleverdon congratulates Lister on his acquisition, and notes that "The printer was Ernest Ingham, a protegé of Stanley Morison (who designed the edition)." Also laid in is a contemporary manuscript copy (perhaps by Ingham's parents) of a 1930 review, in "The Studio" November 1930, in which Cleverdon's Coleridge edition is praised as "exquisitely printed and bound in delicate tones of grey and bluish green and... the special feature is that the illustrations are original copper engravings, a fashion which has been revised by the modern artist with success." It goes on to praise David Jones, who "has become known as a powerful craftsman on wood and metal with an imaginative and mystical style. The engravings to the Ancient Mariner will enhance his reputation... [This work is] worthy to bear comparison with the best of the copper plate illustrated books of the 17th and 18th century." An additional 70 copies were issued signed by David Jones with extra suites of illustrations. To have this scarce and esteemed private press book signed by printer and publisher (neither signature is called for in any of the limitations) is both appropriate and appealing, and is most likely unique.

        LANCELOT 28º - 7º (GUIA INTEGRAL DE UNA ISLA ATLANTICA)

      ALFA, Madrid 1929 - Materia: Libro del siglo XX. Poesía. Canarias. ilustración. Modernismo. Ultraísmo. Surrealismo. Publicación: Madrid, ALFA, 1929. Primera edición. Descripción física: Octavo (19 cm.) 127 páginas. Encuadernación en holandesa piel nueva. Conserva cubiertas originales. Conservación: Buen estado, con pequeños desperfectos y manchas en cubiertas, ligeros puntos de oxidación. Notas: Dedicatoria y firma manuscrita del Autor a Agustín Miranda Junco. Agustín Espinosa García Estrada:Fue un poeta y narrador español, nacido en el Puerto de la Cruz en 1897, Tenerife y fallecido en Los Realejos en 1939. La obra literaria de Agustín Espinosa, notablemente dispersa desde sus orígenes, abarcaría una gran diversidad de géneros, tales como el de la poesía, el relato, diarios, cartas, conferencias, artículos de opinión, prólogos, ensayos, así como una posiblemente inconclusa pieza teatral. La personalidad y escritura de Agustín Espinosa, figura clave para el entendimiento del renacer cultural canario tras las pretéritas incursiones del archipiélago en las tendencias de la Ilustración y el modernismo, supondrían un fenómeno decisivo en el desarrollo de la vanguardia literaria dentro de las islas y en la implicación de Canarias con respecto al movimiento surrealista internacional. Con ocasión de su destinamiento en Lanzarote, el recién nombrado Comisario Regio del nuevo Instituto local de Arrecife compondría una serie de redacciones o capítulos que, más tarde, supondrían el contenido íntegro de su trabajo de vanguardia Lancelot 28º-7º [Guía integral de una isla atlántica], obra de difícil clasificación y una poética y estética rupturistas que, sin embargo, reflejaría con claridad la apuesta de su autor por la continuidad de los principios formales y universalistas expuestos con anterioridad en La Rosa de los Vientos.

        Spider Kin. Illustrations by Marian Brand.

      Chicago: Robert Packard & Company, 1929 - Octavo. Specially bound green-cloth backed green spider-web patterned boards, titles to spine and front cover gilt. With the illustrated dust jacket. Light rubbing to spine ends and tips, an excellent copy in the jacket with chipping to spine and folds of flap ends, some missing, closed tear to head of rear panel, tape repair to verso. Frontispiece and 3 full page woodcuts, all with spider-web patterned glassine guards. First edition, first impression, presentation copy, inscribed by the author, "For Mr and Mrs Parker – a very meager recognition of all their kindness – Forman Brown" on the front free endpaper. The cloth issue with the illustrated jacket precedes the wrappered version, which was issued with a jacket retrospectively advertising this cloth issue and its "webbed boards". This is the first book of noted gay author Forman Brown, also remembered for writing, under the pseudonym Richard Meeker, the 1933 novel Better Angel, about a young man coming to terms with his homosexuality. It is seen as one of the first American novels to view being gay in a positive light. After graduating from the University of Michigan in 1922 Brown began travelling in Europe and the United States with a group of strolling puppet players serving as puppeteer and playwright, eventually establishing the noted Turnabout Puppet Theatre in Los Angeles, which drew celebrity attention and support from Greta Garbo, Marie Dressler, Douglas Fairbanks, and even Albert Einstein.

        THE PASSION PLAY 1 sh c.1929. - JESUS MARY JOSEPH - VERY RARE - AMAZING GRA VG-

      1929 - WE ARE DELIGHTED TO OFFER THIS ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER, WHICH WAS INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION EXCLUSIVELY TO THEATERS - MAKING IT EXTREMELY RARE TODAY. This is not a poster that could be purchased at regular retail outlets. The spectacular image is superb, making this a great item to display or collect. Take a moment to enjoy the fact that the central image of the poster is a series of pictures arranged in the shape of a cross - it is brilliant graphic and religious symbolism. HISTORIC THEMES AND CREATORS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS POSTER, including JESUS, MARY, JOSEPH, THE LAST SUPPER, THE CRUCIFIXION and much more. This poster is undated. We estimate a 1929 date due to the notice about "Synchronized with Singing Music Sound." Since the first such sound film came out about 1928, and sound was standard by 1931, we feel this historic movie was almost certainly made in the 1928-1934 era and estimate a 1929 date. Imagine owning a piece of cinematic and religious history - that is what this is. CONDITION is very attractive. This large poster, known in the trade as a "one sheet," measures about 27" x 41". It was folded by the movie distributor when it was new (for ease of distribution). There are a few splits along the seams, a very small piece or two are gone (barely noticeable), and a few inches of old tape has fallen off the back and left minor stains. We want to detail the condition (please see pic of top half of poster to view seam split through the second "S" in "PASSION," and to see the tiny piece out under "Picture" on right middle). We should also add that this poster still looks very nice. It could be appropriately matted and framed (just as it is) and look great. We grade it VERY GOOD-. It is the only example we can remember every having seen, and would look superb on display. In fact, we cannot find any other example of this poster noted in the top movie collector websites. This could be the only example in existence (although we have no way of knowing that for sure). We estimate that it is about 80 years old. PHOTOS: We are providing large photos so everyone can get an idea of just how nice this poster is. Please note that our consignor's photos are a bit fuzzy and dark. The actual item is sharply printed with square corners. This poster would make a spectacular addition to almost any collection of religious and historic movie posters. Condition: VG-

        Production manager's notebook for Vanity Fair underwear and stockings

      [Reading, Pennsylvania] 1929 - This 5" x 7.5" notebook contains 120 pages chock full of manuscript production tables, sizing information, test results, assorted notes, clothing labels, elastic samples, receipts, correspondence, certifications and more. A six-page pamphlet extract with information about an automatic sewing machine is laid in. All of the contents are in very nice shape. The notebook corner shows some wear and is missing its spine covering. Vanity Fair, which has grown into a $13 billion clothing conglomerate (Wrangler, Lee, Jansport, Northface, Vans, Timberland, Nautica, etc.) began in 1899 as a Pennsylvania glove and mitten company. As those sales began to wane in the 1910s it added underwear to its line. Silk underwear was added in 1913; rayon, rayon-blends, and hosiery in the 1920s; and elastic, which it used for girdles and bras, in the 1930s. During the World War II years, the company devoted all of its production lining to making parachutes. After the war, it began to only use nylon in its products and led in developing pleating, color, and print processes. In the late1960s, the company changed its name to the VF Corporation and began buying up other companies. Interestingly, in 2007, VF Corporation left the lingerie business and sold Vanity Fair to Fruit of the Loom. Snader was an important member of the company's leadership team and served in a variety of positions including Production Manager, Sales Manager, and Treasurer. No doubt a competitor would have loved to find this notebook left lying around on a restaurant table, lounge bar, or restroom vanity. Obviously a unique record of a classic American company's early years as it built itself into major lingerie supplier. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
