        Bookjackets by Alvin Lustig for New Directions Books

      New York: The Gotham Book Mart Press, 1947. 7½ x 6¼ inches. Title and two leaves text: Statements by Laughlin and Lustig. 18 color plates of New Directions jackets designed by Lustig (of 20? see below). Original comb binding, printed wrappers. Lower third of each sheet with pale dampstain and minor associated cockling. A SCARCE PROMOTIONAL BROCHURE FROM NEW DIRECTIONS. Laughlin states: "It is obvious that the series of jacket designs which Alvin Lustig has made for my New Classics books is a constant pleasure to the eye. There is nothing in the book world today which compares with them for color, for variety, for life, for appeal to the intelligence. Again and again I find myself lining the books up to gloat at them. What is quite as important: these jackets have enormously increased the sale of the New Classics Series. About eight books were in print before Lustig came into the picture. They were jacketted in a very conservative, 'booky', way. Sales were pretty dreary. Then we brightened the books up with the Lustig covers. Immediately they began to move..." Sales in fact increased by three hundred percent. Lustig notes that he conceived of "a series of symbols that could quickly summarize the spirit of each book" in order to "hold the roving eye of the potential buyer." "The jackets were also always planned for maximum visual effectiveness when displayed together, as well as when shown singly against the confused background of the average book store. As the publisher's remarks testify, the primary aim of reaching the audience was achieved. I hope too that the secondary aim, that of projecting a series of 'public' symbols of higher than usual standards, was also achieved." Following the text are eighteen front panel jacket designs from the series: Rimbaud's A Season in Hell and Illuminations; Stein's Three Lives; Forster's The Longest Journey and A Room with a View; James' The Spoils of Poynton; Flaubert's Three Tales; Waugh's A Handful of Dust; Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby; Kafka's Amerika; Barnes' Nightwood; Patchen's Selected Poems; Joyce's Exiles; Fournier's The Wanderer; Baudelaire's Flowers of Evil; Lawrence's The Man Who Died and Selected Poems; and Boyle's Monday Night. Missing from the sequence are nos. 1 and 15 in the series. This ephemeral promotional pamphlet was sent to book stores to solicit orders, and is a scarce survival in any condition.

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.

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.

        Luxardo Great photo dedied signed Fashion Beauty Original baryte photo 1947 L350

      1947 - A wonderful image of a great Italian master of photography. A beautiful girl in a break reading a book. We are just after the war, people want to dream with the new books arriving from the United States, France, England. The legendary literary series Medusa is renewed with authors no longer subject to censure. The girl sat on the heart a book by William Somerset Maugham . Finally free to dream. Original vintage gelatin silver baryte photo unmounted Great tonal range Author: Elio Luxardo - Milano In very good condition, excellent (see scan) Photo size: 17x23,3 cm Elio Luxardo (Sorocaba, 1º agosto 1908 – Milano, 27 novembre 1969) è stato un fotografo italiano. I Luxardo sono originari di Santa Margherita Ligure. Alfredo, padre di Elio, conduce un piccolo studio fotografico a Pisa, ma gli scarsi guadagni lo convincono a emigrare in Brasile nel 1900. Qui incontra una ragazza di origine italiana, giunta con la famiglia da Mestre a soli 4 anni. Il primo agosto 1908 nasce Elio; seguono le sorelle Aurora ed Elda, e infine il fratello Aldo. Elio, sin da fanciullo, respira un clima artistico vivace e stimolante. Con i fratelli lavora nella bottega del padre, dove impara il mestiere. Già da ragazzo si distingue per le sue straordinarie doti sportive; è campione di nuoto e grande appassionato di atletica leggera. Conosciuto nell'ambiente come eccellente atleta e fotografo, realizza in qualità di operatore alcuni documentari sportivi, su commissione del governo brasiliano. Dalla testimonianza della moglie Trude Kraus sappiamo che la famiglia Luxardo lascia il Brasile nel 1928. Le fonti bibliografiche riferiscono invece questa partenza al 1932. A Roma Elio apre uno studio fotografico in un piccolo scantinato; contemporaneamente inizia a lavorare per Sem Bosch, fotografo di Casa Reale, di cui rileva lo studio pochi mesi dopo. I suoi primi clienti sono le coppie delle sale da ballo e i giovani sposi, che acquistando una camera da letto alla Rinascente, hanno in omaggio una foto ricordo di Elio Luxardo. Nel 1934 si iscrive al Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia. Qui conosce molti giovani aspiranti attori e registi; alcuni diverranno i grandi protagonisti del cinema italiano degli anni trenta e quaranta e molti, forse tutti, sono suoi clienti in via del Tritone 197. Anche per Luxardo arriva l'occasione di dirigere un film con protagonista Luisa Ferida, ma un diniego da parte sua nei riguardi dell'attrice conclude subitaneamente la sua carriera di regista. Nel frattempo Luxardo è divenuto fotografo per "eccellenza" e con Ghitta Carell si dividono il mondo dell'aristocrazia, dell'alta borghesia e della cultura. Con lui nel suo studio lavorano nello sviluppo e nel ritocco il fratello Aldo e le sorelle Elda e Aurora; gli attori che posano di fronte a Luxardo possono dire di aver raggiunto il successo. Ciò che compie è una vera rivoluzione nell'idea del ritratto, fino a quel momento legato a una impostazione accademica, anche se nella produzione comune, quella che poi gli consente di proseguire nel suo lavoro di ricerca, sostanzialmente rimane fedele a schemi più tradizionali. La luce è la vera protagonista della sua fotografia, luce diffusa e riflessa. Il cerone e poi il ritocco fatto a mano rendono "immortale" qualsiasi oggetto. Luxardo come punto di riferimento ha i grandi fotografi del cinema americano: Roberto Coburn, William Walling, Laszlo Willingere e Clarence Sinclair Bull. Ancor prima era stato il secondo Futurismo e il movimento di Novecento di Margherita Sarfatti, ma dei nudi della metà degli anni Trenta è vicino al sensuale vitalismo di Edward Weston. Proprio in quegli anni volge la sua attenzione al trionfo dionisiaco di Leni Riefenstahl e nella pubblicità — dove "Vogue" e "Harper's Bazaar" sono i modelli — a Cecil Beaton, George Hoyningen-Huene e Horst P. Horst. Luxardo collabora per le più prestigiose riviste italiane con servizi di moda, arredamento e cinema; le sue foto sono pubblicate su "Bellezza", "Cine Ill

        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.

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. Er studierte an der Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris Malerei und Grafik und ist seit 1970 freischaffender Künstler.
