In einer grün lackierten Holz-Kassette ausgeliefert, wurde der Reprint der fünf Steinbeck-Bände mit Umschlägen des Künstlers Markus Lüpertz versehen. Markus Lüpertz (* 25. April 1941 in Reichenberg, Deutsches Reich) ist ein deutscher Maler, Grafiker und Bildhauer. Er zählt zu den bekanntesten deutschen Künstlern der Gegenwart. Seine Bildgegenstände zeichnen sich durch suggestive Kraft und archaische Monumentalität aus. Lüpertz dringt darauf, den Darstellungsgegenstand mit einer archetypischen Aussage seines Daseins festzuhalten. Viele seiner Werke werden dem Neoexpressionismus zugeschrieben. Von 1988 bis 2009 war Lüpertz Rektor an der Staatlichen Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. In der Öffentlichkeit stilisiert er sich als exzentrischen Maler, der seinen eigenen Geniekult betreibt.

        Curious George

      Houghton Mifflin Co, Boston - An uncommon, very early --but not 1st-- edition of "Curious George". Based on the dustjacket price of "$2.75", we're surmising this edition was published in the mid to late 1950s, some 14 to 17 years after the exceedingly scarce 1941 original edition was published. Even though this copy is missing its front free endpaper, it remains solid and very presentable. Tight, clean and VG- in its red cloth. And in a crisp, price-intact, VG- dustjacket, with 2 separate 1" pieces of tape --and several small closed tears-- along the panel edges. A bit of light, forgiveable soiling as well at the panels. Octavo, written by an uncredited Margret Rey and wonderfully illustrated thruout in rich color by her husband H.A. Rey. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Winston S. Churchill Signed Photograph.

      Signed photograph of Prime Minister Winston Churchill with his right hand in his pocket. Boldly signed, "Winston S. Churchill, 1941", affixed to its original studio mount. Accompanied by a letter from Churchill's personal secretary R. E. K. Hill, dated July 3, 1941, addressed Mrs. Stapleton, "I am now returning to you the photograph of Mr. Churchill, which he was glad to autograph for your husband's ship, H.M.S. 'Amaranthus.' Nicholas Stapleton commanded HMS Amaranthus from January to August 1941. American photographer Edward Steichen took this photo of Churchill in 1932 for Vanity Fair magazine, with the image later serving as the dust jacket photograph for While England Slept in 1938, the American edition of Churchill's Arms and the Covenant. Authorized copies of this print were produced for sale by Harrods after Churchill ascended to the Prime Ministership in 1940. The photograph measures 5.75 inches by 7.75 inches. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 18 inches by 21 inches. An exceptional signed portrait with noted provenance. Winston S. Churchill was a British statesman who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. He was also an officer in the British Army, a non-academic historian, a writer and an artist. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 for his overall, lifetime body of work. In 1963, he was the first of only eight people to be made an honorary citizen of the United States. Churchill was born into the family of the Dukes of Marlborough, a branch of the Spencer family. His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, was a politician who served as Chancellor of the Exchequer; his mother, Jennie Jerome, was an American socialite. As a young army officer, he saw action in British India, the Anglo-Sudan War, and the Second Boer War. He gained fame as a war correspondent and wrote books about his campaigns. At the forefront of politics for fifty years, he held many political and cabinet positions. Before the First World War, he served as President of the Board of Trade, Home Secretary, and First Lord of the Admiralty as part of Asquith's Liberal government. During the war, he continued as First Lord of the Admiralty until the Gallipoli Campaign caused his departure from government. He then briefly resumed active army service on the Western Front as commander of the 6th Battalion of the Royal Scots Fusiliers. He returned to government under Lloyd George as Minister of Munitions, Secretary of State for War, Secretary of State for Air, then Secretary of State for the Colonies. After two years out of Parliament, he served as Chancellor of the Exchequer in Baldwin's Conservative government of 1924-1929, controversially returning the pound sterling in 1925 to the gold standard at its pre-war parity, a move widely seen as creating deflationary pressure on the UK economy. Out of office and politically "in the wilderness" during the 1930s because of his opposition to increased home rule for India and his resistance to the 1936 abdication of Edward VIII, Churchill took the lead in warning about Nazi Germany and in campaigning for rearmament. At the outbreak of the Second World War, he was again appointed First Lord of the Admiralty. Following the resignation of Neville Chamberlain on 10 May 1940, Churchill became Prime Minister. His speeches and radio broadcasts helped inspire British resistance, especially during the difficult days of 1940-41 when the British Commonwealth and Empire stood almost alone in its active opposition to Adolf Hitler. He led Britain as Prime Minister until victory over Nazi Germany had been secured. After the Conservative Party suffered an unexpected defeat in the 1945 general election, he became Leader of the Opposition to the Labour Government. He publicly warned of an "Iron Curtain" of Soviet influence in Europe and promoted European unity. After winning the 1951 election, Churchill again became Prime Minister. His second term was preoccupied by foreign affairs, including the Malayan Emergency, Mau Mau Uprising, Korean War, and a UK-backed coup d'etat in Iran. Domestically his government laid great emphasis on house-building. Churchill suffered a serious stroke in 1953 and retired as Prime Minister in 1955, although he remained a Member of Parliament until 1964. Upon his death aged ninety in 1965, Elizabeth II granted him the honor of a state funeral, which saw one of the largest assemblies of world statesmen in history.

        Following James McNeill Whistler, Etcher and Painter 1834-1903. 65 etchings First edition. Signed

      Lime Rock, CT: Bernhardt Wall, 1941. Sq. 4to, 10 x 10.5 inches; bound by Wall in grey cloth spine over boards with etched cover label; dust jacket with etched spine label, torn but stabilized at top. 65 miniature etchings printed in colors on heavy wove paper showing portraits, biographical locales, and notable institutions that hold Whistler's work; over 50 of the etchings are individually signed; printed on Dard Hunter handmade paper. NUMBER ONE OF 63 COPIES SIGNED BY WALL and marked PP (Printer's Proof) on colophon, and with etched dedication to Natalie Williams "of Texas, in whose home surrounded by etchings & books our inspiration came to do this book." Bernhardt Wall was born in Buffalo, New York on Dec. 30, 1872. He studied at the Buffalo Art Student's League then moved on to study in New York under Henry Reuterdahl and also apprenticed under William Auerbach-Levy. Wall began a career as a lithographic illustrator in 1889 working primarily as a commercial artist in New York and Buffalo. He soon became known as the "Postcard King" and designed over 5,000 comic cards. The year1915 marked a defining point in Wall's artistic career. Wall visited Colorado, Nevada and California making etchings of Indians, cowboys and major cities which were later published in a portfolio entitled, "Under Western Skies." These proved to be very successful and the artist shortly thereafter moved to California permanently. Wall continued to produce many fine etchings of the American West and by 1930 had also become a much respected historian of the region. Bernhardt Wall was unique in that he not only drew the etchings for his books, but he also printed and bound them. His books are in libraries and universities around the world including the British Museum, Library of Congress, the libraries of Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Brown Universities. His works were also in the private collections of J. P. Morgan, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry C. Frick and Dr. N.C. Mathewson. Wall etched three sitting presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Warren Taft, and Henry Coolidge. Other prominent individuals etched by Wall include Sam Houston, Mark Twain, Thomas A. Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson. Artist and historian, Bernhardt Wall (1872-1956) was a pioneer etcher and producer of fine press books who treated a vast array of subjects, including Texas and the Southwest. Historians of fine press printing have compared him to William Blake.

      Tehran, Government Printing House, [1941]. 4to. Original printed wrappers with cloth backstrip; pp. [ii], 117, binding a little loosened, otherwise good. ~b~Extremely rare first edition of this illustrated Iranian military intelligence handbook on the eastern Iranian province of Khorasan, which presents 'besides a thorough physical topography, an exhaustive and admirable fund of information on the economic, social and political peculiarities' (M. Reza Ghods, The Rise and Fall of General Razmara, in: Middle Eastern Studies~i~ Vol. 29, No.1 (Jan., 1993), pp. 22-35). The book deals as well with all of Iran's neighbors' border provinces from Turkey, over the Soviet Union, Afghanistan to the British Empire and the Gulf.. The historical background is the Second World War, when Iran tried - successfully - to remain neutral. However, there was a real possibility to be sucked into the war or be invaded by the British Empire, German troops, or, despite the non aggression pact signed with Lenin, by the Soviet UnionRazmara (1901-1951) was born in Tehran and studied at the military academy of Saint-Cyr in France and after a successful military career, including head of Military Intelligence and three-times joint Chief-of Staff, he eventually became Prime Minister in 1950.

        MIND YOUR HEAD

      Bourke-White, Margaret. Original silver gelatin photograph of Bourke-White and Erskine Caldwell each in Russian fur hats, beneath a sign stating "MIND YOUR HEAD." Image size 4 x 5 1/2 inches [10.2 x 14 cm.] The photo is mounted on the front of a folded card stock with this printed caption "...your heart, and your pocketbook," White Sea, 1941. The inside of the card reads "1942, Horseplay Hill, Darien, Connecticut." Slightest of foxing on card, else very good; the photo is bright. A well-known self-portrait by Bourke-White, made aboard ship after leaving the Soviet Union in 1941. Shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Bourke-White and Caldwell decided to separate, with Caldwell going to Hollywood and Bourke-White joining the war effort; they divorced in 1942. The photo is reproduced on p. 187 of Bourke-White's PORTRAIT OF MYSELF, but the printed legend on this card is unique - given the sarcastic tone, it is presumed that Bourke-White sent this card to her intimates to announce her divorce.
