      New York: Avon Book Company / Avon Publishing Company / Avon Novels / Stratford Novels 1st Editions 1947, 1948, 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1953 ----------This set will require NO additional shipping charges for a US or Canadian order, overseas orders will require a shipping charge DRAMATICALLY LESS than actual postage (inquire). 23 pulp magazines, digest size, sometimes considered to be digest size vintage paperbacks, and also considered to be series of anthologies . The Avon Fantasy Reader (AFR), with Donald Wollheim as editor, ran for 18 issues from 1947 to 1952. There were a few original stories, but most were reprints, a large number coming from Weird Tales. Some authors included are William Hope Hodgson, August Derleth, H.G. Wells, Murray Leinster, A. Merritt, Clark Ashton Smith, Lord Dunsany, Fletcher Pratt, David H. Keller, Guy Endore, Robert E. Howard, Robert W. Chambers, C.L. Moore, H.P. Lovecraft, Ray Bradbury, John Collier, Nelson Bond, A.E. Van Vogt, Robert Bloch, C.M. Kornbluth, Jack Williamson, Thorp McClusky, David H. Keller, Sax Rohmer, Fritz Leiber, Frank Gruber, Ambrose Bierce, Algernon Blackwood, Otis Adelbert Kline, Malcolm Jameson, Seabury Quinn, Manly Wade Wellman, Clifford Simak, Ray Cummings, Stanley G. Weinbaum, M.P. Shiel, G.K. Chesterton, Anthony Boucher, Hugh B. Cave. Also under Wollheim, the Avon Science Fiction Reader (ASFR) ran for 3 issues in 1951-1952, and entirely consisted of reprints, including stories by Edmond Hamilton, Murray Leinster, A. Merritt, Jack Williamson, Frank Belknap Long, Clark Ashton Smith, Ray Cummings, Robert A.W. Lowndes, Lord Dunsany, S. Fowler Wright, H.P. Lovecraft and Hannes Bok. When Wollheim left Avon in 1952, the 2 lines were merged as Avon Science Fiction & Fantasy Reader (ASF&FR) for 2 1953 issues, under the editorship of Sol Cohen. For some reason, the publisher of the final issue (April 1953) was Stratford Novels, a subsidiary of Avon, rather than Avon. ASF&FR included illustrations (the 2 earlier runs did not), and published all original stories of very good quality, including works by Arthur C. Clarke, John Jakes, John Christopher, Charles L. Harness, Jack Vance, and Stephen Marlowe. Condition notes follow. AFR: # 5 has covers detached but still looks great, #s 4, 10 & 15 have faint cover creases and are VG+, # 17 has faint cover creases, back cover soiling, and is VG, some others have modest shelfwear, several are unread, and are near fine to fine. ASFR: # 2 has faint cover creases and is VG+, the other 2 have modest shelfwear and are near fine to fine. ASF&FR: both volumes are almost as new unread copies.. First Edition. Soft Cover. Near Fine. Note: our prices on Biblio are the LOWEST of any of the sites on which we list our books.

        Field Guide of Birds in the West Indies.

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1947 - Octavo. Original brown cloth, titles to spine and front board in black, map endpapers. With the dust jacket. Top edge slightly dusty. An excellent copy in the dust jacket with some minor wear to edges but very good overall, and in far better condition than usually found for this work. Colour illustrated frontispiece, black and white illustrated plate, and vignette illustrations in the text throughout. First edition, first printing, thus (originally published as Birds of the West Indies in 1936). Ian Fleming owned a copy of this book at Goldeneye, his estate in Jamaica, where he sat down to write Casino Royale in 1952; it is the book that gave James Bond his name, for, as the book used to lie on Fleming's kitchen table, as he later explained to the ornithologist Bond's wife, "It struck me that this brief, unromantic, Anglo-Saxon and yet very masculine name was just what I needed, and so a second James Bond was born".

        TALKS ABOUT CINEMA] Chelovek na ekrane: Chetyre besedy o kinoiskusstve. Dnevnik rezhissyora [i.e. Man on the Screen: Four Talks about Cinema Art. Director's Journal]

      Goskinoizdat, Moscow 1947 - 280 pp.: ill., 28 pl. 22,5x16 cm. In original cloth. Design by Solomon Telingater (1903-1969). Endpapers design made by B. Kolesnikov, designed by S. Telingater. Binding slightly rubbed and soiled, small tear of the paper on the front pastedown. Otherwise near fine. Inscribed by the author on the half-title to director of photography Vitaly Abramov famous for ''Ivan Vasilievich Changes the Profession'' and ''Sportloto-82'': ''To Vitaly Abramov with faith in his future. Sergey Yutkevich''. First edition of the first book about Sergey Iosifovich Yutkevich (1904-1985), a Soviet film director and screenwriter. Between 1921 and 1923 he studied under Vsevolod Meyerhold in Higher Director's Courses and VKHUTEMAS with his friend Sergey Eisenstein. His films often were cheerier than most Russian films as he was influenced by American slapstick, among other things. However he also did serious historical films, docudramas, and biopics. He won Cannes's Best Director Award twice: for Othello in 1956 and for Lenin in Poland in 1966. In Cannes, Yutkevich was a frequent visitor, more than once entered the jury of the famous film festival. He was friends with Picasso and Matisse, and both artists painted his portraits. Elegant in life, he was emphatically elegant in his directorial work. Whether it is the Miners, Counter, Man with a Gun, or Lenin in Poland. Yutkevich was teaching students since 1939. This book is based on lectures he gave at Academy of Film Directing in 1938. Each 'talk' is dedicated to a subject - actor, director, editing, film artist. Second part is director's diary with interesting materials on Soviet cinema and its history. Director's filmography is given in the end. Text is accompanied by many black and white film shots. Worldcat locates copies at Columbia, Berkeley, University of Illinois. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      - Beschreibung: Wie man eine Fläche formal reich, interessant und spannungsvoll, ohne gegenständliche Motive abbildet, die lineare Form, die Strukturierung der Fläche, formal-ästhetisch reizvolle und abstrakter Ornamentik, zeigt diese ungegenständliche Arbeit, bizarre, gleichsam in vielen Linien und Flecken zersprengte Formen die der Künstler auf einer Fläche bringt. Farbliche Verhaltenheit prägt seine Bilder. (Zitat de Bernardi). Georges Dussau, wurde am 14.3.1947 in Chalon-sur-Saone, Frankreich geboren.

Seine Werke werden regelmäßig auf den wichtigsten Kunstmessen in Basel, Chicago, Paris und New York gezeigt. Zustand: Rahmen minimal berieben, sonst sehr sauber und tadellos erhalten.

        Das Spiel um Deutschland

      Das Spiel um Deutschland ist das erste politische Memoirenwerk seit 1947, das keine Selbstverteidigung, sondern eine objektive Zeugenaussage darstellt. Es enthält sich jeder Schwarz-Weiß-Technik und wirkst dadurch aller Legendenbildung, von welcher Seite auch immer, entgegen... Das Buch bringt eine Fülle bisher unbekannt gebliebenen materials: die interne Geschichte der deutsch-englischen Beziehungen, des Abkommens von München und der Vermittlungsbemühungen vor den kriegserklärungen, Hitlers Entschlüsse im Westfeldzug, die Friedensmöglichkeiten während des krieges, die wahren Gründe für den Ostfeldzug, die Hintergründe um den 20. Juli, die diplomatischen Übergabeverhandlungen mit dem Westen, das Verhältnis Ribbentrops zu Hitler und Hitlers Erkrankung. Der Verfasser war England-Referent und vortragender Legationsrat im Führerhauptquartier, versuchte, den krieg zu verhindern, war einer der unbekannt gebliebenen Mitglieder der Opposition und der einzige Deutsche, der mit den Westalliierten im Auftrage Hitlers über die Kapitulation verhandelt hat... Kurzbiografie der Verfassers auf der Innenseite des Schutzumschlags. Schutzumschlag deutlich beschädigt, Stockflecken vor allem am Buchrücken, leicht gebräunte Seiten, sonst gut erhalten.

Fine condition.<br /><br />In full, <I>“The Acting Secretary of State, in reporting to me on the progress made in examining the report submitted by the Paris Conference on European Economic Recovery and in the formulation of an Administration position with regard to this report, has expressed great appreciation of the assistance received from you and the members of your Bureau working on this matter. While I naturally expect the fullest measure of co-operation from members of the Executive Departments, I am very gratified at the fine teamwork being displayed both by the individuals and the agencies involved. I have noted it with pleasure, and I commend you and your associates for the great efforts being made in this undertaking. I hope you will pass on to the personnel of your Bureau who have been so helpful, an assurance of my gratitude and appreciation for their work.”</I><br /><br />President Truman then penned a note on a 3x5 yellow slip of paper and affixed it to the lower right edge of the letter with two-sided plastic tape: <I>“Mr. Webb:- This proposition looks as if we should comply. Please talk to Cong Bates about it. HST”</I><br /><br />James Reston reported in “The New York Times” on November 3, 1947, about the Marshall Plan, “to be known officially as the European Recovery Program. According to responsible officials, the main points of this program, which will go to the Bureau of the Budget Friday, may be listed as follows: 1. The Administration will ask Congress to cooperate with the sixteen Paris conference nations in attaining the production goals set out in the Paris report, but will not endorse the $22,440,000,000 total suggested at Paris as the probable cost of the program. 2. Instead, it will ask for authorization to work on the four-year plan and request an appropriation for one year. This one-year request is expected to add up, in one way or another, to between $6,000,000,000 and $7,000,000,000 and Congress will also be asked to authorize the treasury to make available, when necessary, $3,000,000,000 for a European stabilization fund…”<br /><br />Republican Congressman George J. Bates of Massachusetts was a member of a committee of nine members of the House Appropriations and Armed Services Committees who returned to Washington on October 18, 1947, after a six-week study of European conditions. The group demanded immediate action on the Marshall Plan or a similar plan at the earliest possible time to prevent a complete downfall of Europe.<br /><br />On June 5, 1947, in a speech at the Harvard commencement, Secretary of State George C. Marshall called for an American plan to help Europe recover from World War II. On June 19th, the British and French Foreign ministers issue a joint communiqué inviting 22 European nations to send representatives to Paris to draw up a cooperative recovery plan. On July 12th, the Conference of European Economic Cooperation, which became the Committee of European Economic Cooperation (CEEC), met in Paris. In September, the CEEC submitted its report estimating needs and the cost of the European Recovery Program (Marshall Plan) over four years. It provided for the establishment of the Organization for European Economic Cooperation to coordinate the program from the European side. On October 30, 1947, the Secretary of State and the Under Secretary of Stare met with President Truman at the White House.<br /><br />James E. Webb served as Truman’s Director of the Bureau of the Budget from July 13, 1946 to January 27, 1949, and as his Under Secretary of State from January 28, 1949 to February 29, 1952. He was NASA Administrator from 1961-1968.<br />
