        Spleen de Paris.

      Edition illustree etornee par le peintre d'Essertine[Illustrated and decorated edition by a painter of Essertine]. Theoule sur Mer [France] : Phillipe Gonin, 1942. Quarto, original hand-lettered wrappers, collated in sections (as issued), pp 81, bookplate to colophon leaf. Housed in faux leather portfolio with hand-lettered spine (hinges split), original faux leather slipcase. Consists of 13 poems, extensively illustrated with gouache and watercolour portraits, still lifes, and initials."Cette edition a ete faite sur l'Initiative de Mr Jean E. Bonna. Il a ete fait vingt exemplaires numerotes de 1 a 20. Chaque livre est illustre et peint a la main." [This edition made on the initiative of Mr Jean E. Bonna. It was done in twenty copies numbered 1 to 20. Each book is illustrated and hand painted.] Baudelaire'sSpleen de Paris(first published in 1869) represents an important early precursor to literary modernism, written exclusively in newly established poetic prose to capture the essence of modern, urban life. Baudelaire was heavily influenced by Aloysius Bertrand’s Gaspard de la nuit and sought to apply a new, modern poetic language to themes of pleasure and debauchery, metropolitan poverty, class divides, and the inevitable march of time.The full fifty vingnettes were originally published as the compilationPetits Poèmes en prose and represented writings from across the last twelve years of Baudelaire's life. This war-time publication, printed no doubt to combat the images of desctruction so prevalent in Europe at the time, includes the poemsÀ une heure du matin,Les Foules, L’Horloge, Un Hémisphère dans une chevelure,Les Projets,La Belle Dorothée,Enivrez-vous,Déjà,Les Fenêtres,Le Désir de peindre,Les Bienfaits de la lune,Le Port, andPortraits de maîtresses.Illustrated with original artworks composed in homage to impressionists such as Pissaro as well as the semi-eroticism of Gaugin, this rare edition of Baudelaire's seminal work appears to not be held in any institutional collection.

        Archive of Eight Typed Letters Signed

      Maryland and Ontario 1942 - All of these letters were written to Mr. Rodgers, a member of the Executive Board of the Council for Democracy. Four of the letters (totaling six pages) are on 7.5 x 5.75-inch personal stationery from Maynard's home in Westminster, Maryland, dated June 23 to August 19, 1942. Three of the letters (totaling four pages) are on 11 x 8.5-inch letterhead from Assumption College in Windsor, Ontario, dated from July 6 to September 23, 1942. The remaining letter is on a plain sheet of 11 x 8.5-inch paper with the Westminster address typed in, dated September 17, 1942. In this correspondence, Maynard agrees to write an article about why Catholics should support Russia and also expresses that he does not want to be party to ousting Liam O'Connor, in part: "With regard to the problem of Protestant pacifists, well, I understand that matter rather well, having been brought up as a Protestant." He disparages Fr. Coughlin: "I hear that [his] school for diplomats is a bluff." He talks about the request to soften his remarks in a magazine article: ".a delicate subject.and I have tried to handle it with discretion, my main fear now is that I have been so careful as to be a bit colorless." He also expresses his need to make money. At the time Maynard wrote these letters, he was not in the best of health and was also undergoing economic hardship. The following year, he spent long periods away from home doing research and giving lectures, while the family was chronically short of money (according to T.W. Hendricks "A Historian of American Catholicism"). These letters provide a window into his life and thinking in the summer of 1942. The letters all have natural folds; several have small stains (including one with a paperclip stain), but are all in very good(-) to very good(+) condition. English poet and literary critic who was best known as one of the most influential historians on Roman Catholicism in the United States. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Vivien Leigh signed hardcover book, "The Skin of Our Teeth", with original dust jacket

      n.p., Circa 1940s. 5.625" x 8.25". "Hardcover book, The Skin of Our Teeth: Play in Three Acts by Thornton Wilder (Harper & Brothers Publishers, New York/London, 1942), elegantly signed "Vivien Leigh" in blue fountain pen and underlined on front end paper, part of "V" of Vivien within slightly browned area. Red book covers with original robin's egg blue and black dust jacket, 142 pages, 5.625" x 8.25". In fine condition, with light patchy mat burn to front and back end papers, some minor edge tears, and two offcut pages (105 and 119) as published. Expected wear to dust jacket corners and edges. Personal library card signed "Adeline C. Gibson" affixed to interior front cover.American playwright Thornton Wilder's The Skin of Our Teeth was first performed at the Shubert Theater in New Haven, CT in October 1942 starring Frederic March and Tallulah Bankhead. Classically trained English actress Vivien Leigh starred as housemaid Lily Sabina in four of its later productions: at the Phoenix Theater in London in May 1945; at the Piccadilly Theater in London in September 1946; on an Australian and New Zealand tour in November 1948; and in a later televised broadcast in March 1959. Leigh completely immersed herself in the role of Lily Sabina, the play's chatty and sexy narrator. Described as a "straw-blonde" and "over-rouged" parlor maid, Lily Sabina is a complex character whose name alludes at once to the proto-Garden anti-heroine Lilith and the violated Sabine women of Roman history. It is possible that Leigh consulted this book during preparations of or rehearsals for the role. She was directed by husband Laurence Olivier during some of these productions.Vivien Leigh (1913-1967) was already a well-established theater and film actress when she accepted the role in The Skin of Our Teeth. Before accepting her first movie role as an extra, Leigh studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. She achieved success in English theatrical productions before trying the movies in the mid-to-late 1930s. Her break-out success as Scarlett O'Hara in 1939 Gone with the Wind made her an international star. The theatrical production of The Skin of Our Teeth was sandwiched between two of Leigh's film projects, Caesar and Cleopatra (1945) and Anna Karenina (1948), and one year after she was first diagnosed with tuberculosis.Thornton Wilder (1897-1975) was a critically and commercially successful novelist, playwright, essayist, screenwriter, scholar, and translator. He won Pulitzer Prizes for both drama and fiction. Along with The Skin of Our Teeth, he is best known for his sentimental and nostalgic Our Town (1938)."

      Lifelong authenticity guarantee! Lebenslange Echtheitsgarantie!Muhammad Ali (* 17. Januar 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky als Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr.) ist ein ehemaliger US-amerikanischer Boxer. Er gehört zu den bedeutendsten Schwergewichtsboxern und herausragendsten Athleten des 20. Jahrhunderts und wurde 1999 vom Internationalen Olympischen Komitee zum ?Sportler des Jahrhunderts? gewählt.[1]Auch außerhalb des Boxrings sorgte Ali für Schlagzeilen. So lehnte er öffentlich den Vietnamkrieg ab, verweigerte den Wehrdienst und unterstützte die Emanzipationsbewegung der Afroamerikaner in den 1960er Jahren. Der Kampf Rumble in the Jungle gegen George Foreman und die Kämpfe Fight of the Century und Thrilla in Manila gegen Joe Frazier gelten als Klassiker unter den Schwergewichtskämpfen.InhaltsverzeichnisKindheit und erster Kontakt mit dem BoxsportClay wurde 1942 als erster von zwei Söhnen eines Schildermalers geboren und wuchs in ärmlichen Verhältnissen auf. Seine Eltern benannten ihren Sohn nach dem Politiker und Gegner der Sklaverei Cassius Marcellus Clay. Mit dem Boxtraining begann der zwölfjährige Clay 1954 aus Wut über den Diebstahl seines Fahrrades ? er hoffte, den Dieb dadurch bestrafen zu können, wenn er ihn erwischte.[1] Im Alter von 16 Jahren verließ Clay die Schule mit schlechten Noten und konzentrierte sich auf sein Boxtraining. Karriere KarrierebeginnInnerhalb weniger Jahre konnte Clay sämtliche nationalen Amateurtitel erringen. Bei den Olympischen Spielen 1960 gewann er in Rom die olympische Goldmedaille im Halbschwergewicht. Noch im selben Jahr wurde er Profi.Clay musste feststellen, dass ein Wrestler namens Gorgeous George für größeres Aufsehen bei Presse und Zuschauern sorgte als ein bescheiden auftretender Nachwuchsboxer wie er. Daraufhin begann er, den Stil von George zu kopieren und der Presse von nun an immer neues Material in Form von Spottreimen über seine Gegner zu liefern: Vorhersagen über die Runde seines K.-o.-Sieges (?Archie Moore will be on the floor in round four?, ?Archie Moore wird in der vierten Runde am Boden liegen?) und ähnliche Äußerungen.[2] Mit diesem provozierend zur Schau getragenen Selbstbewusstsein wurde Clay bald berühmt. Weil seine Prophezeiungen über den Ausgang oft zutrafen und Gegner tatsächlich in den vorhergesagten Runden zu Boden gingen, wurde er eine Zeitlang sogar des Betrugs verdächtigt. Aufstieg und erste Weltmeisterschaft (1964) &#8594 Hauptartikel: Muhammad Ali vs. Sonny ListonIm Februar des Jahres 1964 bekam Clay einen Weltmeisterschaftskampf gegen Sonny Liston, nachdem er zuvor Doug Jones umstritten nach Punkten und Henry Cooper durch K. o. besiegt hatte. Viele Journalisten mochten Clays selbstsichere Art nicht und prophezeiten ihm eine Niederlage gegen Liston, so auch Arthur Daley von der New York Times: ?The irritatingly confident Cassius enters this bout with one trifling handicap. He can?t fight as well as he can talk.? (?Der irritierend selbstbewusste Cassius bestreitet diesen Titelkampf mit einem unbedeutenden Nachteil. Er kann nicht so gut kämpfen, wie er reden kann.?).[3]Trotzdem gewann der mit Sieben zu Eins als Außenseiter gesetzte Clay durch eine ? angeblich verletzungsbedingte ? Aufgabe seines Gegners nach der sechsten Runde. In tumultartigen Szenen brüllte Clay nach dem Sieg immer wieder ?I shook up the world!? und ?I am the greatest!? in die Mikrofone. Die Bilder von ihm mit weit aufgerissenem Mund und Augen gingen um die Welt.Im weiteren Verlauf des Jahres machte Clay seine Mitgliedschaft in der Nation of Islam öffentlich und wählte Muhammad Ali als Namen. 1975 konvertierte er zum sunnitischen Islam.[4] Der Rückkampf gegen ListonIm Rückkampf am 25. Mai 1965 in Lewiston, Maine, wurde Liston von Ali bereits in der 1. Runde nach nur 105 Sekunden Kampf vom so genannten ?Phantomschlag? (?Phantom Punch?, auch als ?Anchor Punch? bekannt geworden) niedergestreckt, einem kurzen, harten, rechten Cross an Schläfe oder Kiefer,[5] der weder von Liston noch von großen Teilen des Publikums gesehen worden war. Ali schrie daraufhin den am Boden liegenden Liston mit den Worten ?Get up, you bum!? (?Komm hoch, du Penner!?) wutentbrannt an und der Ringrichter, der ehemalige Weltmeister Jersey Joe Walcott, der mit der Situation offensichtlich überfordert war, zählte zunächst weder an noch aus, da er den wütend bei Liston stehenden und schreienden Ali von diesem wegzudrängen suchte. Der Kampf wurde dann zunächst wieder freigegeben, unmittelbar darauf jedoch beendet, als Nat Fleischer, der Gründer des Ring Magazines, Walcott darauf hinwies, dass Liston schon deutlich mehr als 10 Sekunden am Boden gewesen war.Der nur von wenigen Zuschauern gesehene ?Phantom Punch? gab im Verbund mit Listons scheinbarer Unbesiegbarkeit und dessen dubiosen Kontakten zur Mafia Anlass zu Spekulationen über einen möglichen Betrug, was andererseits wegen der offensichtlichen Feindschaft zwischen den beiden Boxern bezweifelt wurde. So hatte Liston vor dem ersten Kampf, auf die Provokationen Clays angesprochen, erklärt, dass er die Absicht habe, Clay umzubringen. Auch in seiner Autobiografie wandte sich Ali gegen jegliche Unterstellungen solcher Art und erklärte explizit:?Tatsache ist, dass noch niemals ein Kampf weniger abgesprochen war als dieser.?? Muhammad Ali: Der Größte. Meine Geschichte. S. 123.Film- und Fotoaufnahmen bewiesen im Nachhinein eindeutig, dass Liston von Ali tatsächlich getroffen wurde. Unklar blieb allerdings, wie hart. Deutlich zu sehen ist die entspannte Muskulatur von Listons Körper während des Sturzes, die eine Bewusstlosigkeit zu diesem Zeitpunkt vermuten lässt. Liston erklärte später allerdings, dass er vom Schlag Alis zwar überrascht, jedoch nicht bewusstlos war und nur deshalb nicht sofort wieder aufstand, da er fürchtete, von dem direkt über ihm (anstatt in der neutralen Ecke) stehenden Ali erneut getroffen zu werden. Auch hätte er vergeblich auf das Anzählen durch den Referee gewartet.In dem Augenblick, als Ali wütend und schreiend über dem liegenden Liston steht, entstand eines der bekanntesten Fotos von Ali, geschossen von Neil Leifer.[6] Dieses Foto (eigentlich ein Farbbild, aber als Schwarzweißbild berühmt geworden), nannte sein Biograph David Remnick später ?Ali wild und schön (?), vielleicht (?) das nachhaltigste Bild Alis im Kampf überhaupt.?[5] Karrierehöhepunkt und Titelverlust (1967) Muhammad Ali 1967Mitte der 60er Jahre war Ali auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Karriere. Er traf die Beatles und Elvis Presley und verteidigte seinen Titel unter anderem gegen Ex-Weltmeister Floyd Patterson und dann im Frankfurter Waldstadion gegen den deutschen Europameister Karl Mildenberger (Mildenberger machte ihm einige Probleme er kam bis in die 12. Runde, woraufhin Ali im Anschluss sagte, nie wieder gegen Mildenberger boxen zu wollen), ferner gegen George Chuvalo, Henry Cooper, Brian London, Cleveland Williams, Ernie Terrell und Zora Folley.Ali war äußerst flink, dazu provozierte er oft den Gegner, indem er die Hände neben den Hüften hängen ließ, anstatt sich zu decken. Seine Beine waren jedoch so schnell und die Hüfte so beweglich, dass er fast jeden Schlag auspendeln konnte. Tatsächlich bekam er kaum Treffer an den Kopf, kokettierte mit seinem Aussehen und prahlte, dass er nach ?vielen Kämpfen immer noch so hübsch wie ein Mädchen? sei. Mit einer rasanten tänzerischen Beinkombination namens ?Ali Shuffle? verblüffte er Gegner und Publikum. Gelegentlich ließ er sich demonstrativ mehrmals hintereinander in die durchtrainierte Seite des Körpers schlagen, ohne dass dies erkennbare Wirkungen zeigte ? abgesehen davon, dass der Gegner demoralisiert wurde.[3]Im April 1967 wurde Ali der Titel aberkannt, nachdem er sich geweigert hatte, den Wehrdienst anzutreten. Als ausschlaggebend für seine Entscheidung nannte er zum einen seinen Glauben, sprach aber zum anderen auch die Frage der fehlenden Gleichberechtigung der Afroamerikaner an ...

      Gyldendalske Boghandel / Nordisk Forlag, Copenhagen 1942 - First edition. 332 pp. 8vo. "Navigare necesse est." Signed with Blixen's personal motto. Signed on the half-title, with the motto Blixen adopted as a youth: "Karen Blixen.- Navigare necesse est, vivere non necesse." (To sail is necessary, to live is not necessary.) The famous quote is attributed to Pompey, who exhorted his sailors to undertake a journey to bring grain from Africa to Rome during a fierce storm. In her essay "On Mottoes of My Life," Blixen writes that it was "the first real motto of my youth ? It came naturally to me to view my enterprise in life in terms of seafaring, for my home stands but a hundred yards from the sea, and through all the summers of our youth my brothers had boats in the fairways between Copenhagen and Elsinore ? No compass-needle in the world was as infallible to me as the outstretched arm of Pompey; I steered my course by it with unswerving confidence, and had any wiser person insisted that there was no earthly sense in my motto, I might have answered: 'Nay, but a heavenly sense!' and have added perhaps: 'And a maritime!'" (Daguerreotypes and Other Essays (1984), pp 5-6).This collection of short stories was originally written and published in Danish during the height of the Second World War, with the English edition appearing the same year, as "Winter's Tales" Henriksen 63 Original blue and white wrappers.

        Original fabric design by Sonia Delaunay for haute-couture textile supplier Robert Perrier

      Circa 1942. Gouache on paper, 205 x 260 mm; initialled by the artist in pencil at lower left "S.D."; wet stamp of the Robert Perrier Sonia Delaunay collection on reverse; framed; accompanied by a copy of a typed document by Sonia Delaunay (circa 1972) recording her sale of a total of 1,244 gouache fabric designs to M. Robert Perrier, 26 rue Norvins, Paris, 75018, in 1942; the document authenticates these designs for M. Perrier, and records that 115 of them were lent by M. Perrier for exhibitions in Mulhouse (May, 1971) and Nancy (September, 1972). As early as 1927, in a lecture titled The Influence of Painting on the Art of Clothes, Sonia Delaunay observed: "A movement is now influencing fashion, just as it influences interior decoration, the cinema, and all the visual arts, and it overtakes everything that is not subject to this new principle which painters have spent a century seeking; we are only at the beginning of these new colour relationships, still full of mysteries to unravel, which are at the base of a modern vision." Damase, Jacques, Sonia Delaunay : Fashion and fabrics (London : Thames & Hudson, 2014, p. 59). The career of Russian-born colourist Sonia Delaunay spanned seven decades, from the Belle Epoque to the 1970s. After studying in Germany, in 1905 she settled in Paris, where she would remain for most of her life. From around 1911, along with her husband, Robert Delaunay, she pioneered a particular branch of Cubism known as Simultanism (or Orphism, as it was termed by Apollinaire), which was based on the colour theory developed in the nineteenth century by Michel Eugène Chevreul (De la loi du contraste simultanée des couleurs, Paris, 1839). In this abstract style, form is subjugated to colour: the vital rhythm of a work is created by the interaction of overlapping and juxtaposed contrasting colours. As a multi-disciplinary artist, Delaunay constantly refined her Simultanist approach, producing work up until the late 1970s in a diversity of media and across the applied arts - notably in designs for theatre and ballet, fashion, textiles and architecture - and collaborating with writers such as Blaise Cendrars and Tristan Tzara. A major figure in the European avant-garde, her distinctive abstractionist aesthetic has influenced artists from Paul Klee through to contemporary fashion designers. Sonia Delaunay was the first living female artist to be honoured with a retrospective at the Louvre (1964); more recently, a major retrospective of her work was held at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (17 October 2014 to 22 February 2015) and the Tate Modern in London (15 April to 9 August 2015). A note on Robert Perrier: R-26 was an artistic salon regularly held at the private residence of socialites Madeleine, Marie-Jacques and Robert Perrier at 26 Rue Norvins in the Montmartre district of Paris. First convened on 1 January 1930, the salon became a meeting ground for many creative luminaries of the next eighty years, including singer Josephine Baker, architect Le Corbusier and musician Django Reinhardt ... Early on, painter Sonia Delaunay, a close colleague of Robert Perrier, was most active in introducing new artists to the gatherings, aided by her husband, Robert, and son, Charles. Provenance: the estate of art critic and publisher Jacques Damase, a close friend of the artist who promoted her work in the last 16 years of her life.

        [Collection of 38 flyers (heralds) for movies, from Bogor, Indonesia].Bogor, 1947-1953. 38 single sheets, most printed double-sided, several folding, nearly all with illustrations depicting actors and movie scenes, mostly printed in one or two colours, some in four-colour half-tones.

      Colourful collection of vintage movie heralds and advertisements from the private collection of Bastiaan Cornelis Pieter Hendrik van Baak, commercial advisor of the cinemas Maxim and City-Theatre in Bogor (former Buitenzorg), Indonesia, in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Many sheets contain synopsis and other details in both Indonesian and Dutch, which is noteworthy as Indonesia was no longer a Dutch colony. Musicals and adventures movies form the majority of the collection that includes Singin' In The Rain, An American In Paris, To Have And Have Not, Knock On Any Door, The Big Clock, The Prisoner Of Zenda and Joan Of Arc. The heralds were printed in the United States and most have the Amalgamated Lithographers of America Union label, with the local details (and often opening dates) added later. Many promote contemporary movies, but the collection also contains several heralds of older movies that had not been released earlier in Indonesia. A nice collection that gives an interesting insight in the theatrical life in the early days of the Republic of Indonesia. Extra added: Two small pictures of stars Clark Gable and Ava Gardner with stamp of the Bogor City-Theatre (10,8 x 8,7 cm), 1 issue of Ciné-Roman, containing story and pictures of White Cargo (MGM, 1942), and advertisements. (Wrappers, 19 pp.), and 7 heralds of German, British, Indonesian, Malayan and Philippine movies.All sheets are in very good to mint condition.
