        Important Margaret Mitchell letter: "It seems to some of us that very definite efforts are made to bring about misunderstandings and hatred between the different sections of our country---to make Northerners believe that all Southerners are ignorant degenerates bent on oppressing the Negro ? It was good of you to write that you wanted another book about the characters in 'Gone With the Wind' because you thought it might help to bring understanding of the South?"

On ""Margaret Mitchell"" stationery. Two tiny holes in upper left. With unrelated 1936 envelope from Mitchell to ""Mrs. Josephine Chandler, Mundelein, Ill."" Recipient used the back of the letter to compile a short grocery list for, most likely, a Southern dish (no show through). Fine condition.In part, ""...some of the thoughts you expressed in your letter were thoughts that have been in my mind and those of many Southerners for a long time---that all of us are begged to 'understand the Russians and the Chinese and the ""good"" Germans' while no one tries to make us understand our own people. In fact it seems to some of us that very definite efforts are made to bring about misunderstandings and hatred between the different sections of our country---to make Northerners believe that all Southerners are ignorant degenerates bent on oppressing the Negro, and to make Southerners believe that all Northerners are vicious busybodies bent on telling us how to run our business. As neither of these ideas is true, it would be well dir all of us to do our best to fight against the spread of such falsehoods. It was good of you to write that you wanted another book about the characters in 'Gone With the Wind' because you thought it might help to bring understanding of the South. I thank you most sincerely for the compliment, but I do not contemplate writing such a sequel..."

        Bartender's Guide.

      New York: Doubleday & Company,, 1947. With drawings by Ray Sullivan. Octavo. Original yellow cloth, titles to spine and decoration to front board in black. With the pictorial dust jacket. Illustrations in the text by Ray Sullivan An excellent copy in a chipped and rubbed jacket with faint dampstaining to spine panel. First edition, first printing. Inscribed and signed by Trader Vic in his characteristically extravagant (and mostly indecipherable) scrawl on the front free endpaper, "To my Maeleen [?] aloha... Trader Vic". His inscription is followed by one in a different hand, "To a nice lady I've known a long time. Audrey Mae Chesney, from Trader's Store". Trader Vic's manual contains over 1,500 cocktail recipes for the home and the professional bartender and "also includes several chapters of advice for bartenders, covering both the joys and the perils of bartending, how to be a good host, and how to handle guests who can't handle your drinks" (jacket blurb). Vic "The Trader" Bergeron opened his first bar in Oakland in 1934, which grew into the worldwide franchise of Polynesian-themed restaurants and bars, Trader Vic's. The master mixer travelled extensively to research rum and cocktail mixology and in 1944 invented the Mai Tai (although his friend and rival Don the Beachcomber claimed to be the real inventor).

        6 highly-finished pencil drawings in the guest-book for Werzer's Gasthof "zum Weißes Rössl

      Pörtschach am Wörthersee: , 1947. Octavo. Original red three-quarter cloth, floral boards. 6 pencil drawings by Pock. A little rubbed, else very good. The guest-book for Werzer's famous Gasthof "zum Weißes Rössl" at Pörtschach am Wörthersee, now the home of the Brahms Haus Museum, containing 6 highly-finished pencil drawings by Alexander Pock; : I) Mounted officer, with New Year's wishes for 1947, dated on 26 December 1946. II) Bust-portrait of a feldmarschal, 23 March 1947 III) Two sailors, "on a cozy and beautiful afternoon" 20 April 1947 IV.) Bust-portrait of a general "Before setting out for Carinthia" dated 11 May 1947 V) Drum major, "drawn on a cozy Sunday afternoon" of 12 October 1947 VI) Mounted bugler, dated 16 November 1947. Born in Znojmo, Moravia, now in the Czech Republic Alexander Pock (1871-1950), became on of the most popular Austrian military, genre and portrait painters of his period. He studied at the Vienna Academy under Christian Griepenkerl and Carl Rudolph Huber, showing early enthusiasm for military subjects, with a special talent for equestrian portraits. He came to the attention of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, who became an important patron, and provided many prestigious commissions for Pock. Immediately after Franz Ferdinand's assassination in Sarajevo and the outbreak of the First World War, Pock signed up as a war artist, working at the Front in Galicia, Transylvania, in the Krn (Isonzo) and South Tyrol. Pock had great facility as a sketch artist, quickly working up his studies from life into full studio paintings. His extremely naturalistic representations of horses was based on intensive studies from nature, spending many hours at the Spanish Riding School of Vienna. His clients were mainly of the court and aristocracy, especially the Bohemian nobility, and the military hierarchy, a clientele which was decimated by the war, forcing Pock to concentrate on developing new patronage among the bourgeoisie. But he never lost his love of the military and continued to produce images of the Austrian Army during the First Republic, work characterised by his painstaking accuracy, and meticulous rendering of detail, meaning that his work is considered a highly reliable source for historians of the period. Many of Pock's works are inevitably in private hands, but examples can be seen in Austrian Museums including the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum and Museen der Stadt Wien.

        A Streetcar Named Desire

      New Directions, New York 1947 - A sharp copy of this theater and film highspot. Near Fine book with a small chip at the top of the spine and bumping to the lower edge of the boards. In a Near Fine dust jacket also with a small chip at the top of the spine and two short tears (without loss and each less than 1/2 an inch). But a copy that does not display the ubiquitous toning and fading so often seen and, therefore, uncommon.Tennessee Williams' 1947 masterpiece, a Pulitzer Prize winning work that remains one of the great plays of the American theatre. A Streetcar Named Desire follows Blanche DuBois as she moves to New Orleans to live with her sister, Stella, and Stella's husband Stanley. Like many of Williams' plays, some of the characters are thought to be inspired by members of Williams' own family.A Streetcar Named Desire originally premiered on Broadway on December 3rd 1949, starring Marlon Brando and Jessica Tandy and directed by Eliza Kazan. The London production involved such theatrical luminaries as Vivian Leigh and Laurence Olivier. Of course, the play would be adapted in a classic film version in 1951, which would win four Academy Awards including Best Actress, and was chosen as the Library of Congress as 'culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.' "But Mr. Williams is entitled to his own independence. For he has not forgotten that human beings are the basic subject of art. Out of poetic imagination and ordinary compassion he has spun a poignant and luminous story." (Contemporary New York Times review). Near Fine in Near Fine. dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Zürich: in officina Frosch. [Froschoviana = Froschauer] 1586 16 Blatt, 611 Seiten, 62 Blatt. Blindgeprägter Ledereinband der Zeit auf Holzdeckeln und drei Bünden, Kl.-8°, 16 x 10,5 cm (etwas berieben und bestoßen, kleine Lederverluste an den Kanten des hinteren Deckels, Schließen entfernt, Wurmlöcher auf vorderem Deckel, Vorsätze auf Spiegeln erneuert, im Ganzen ordentlich erhalten, detaillierte Beschreibung weiter unten) Das Papier ist etwas gebräunt, der Druck ist stellenweise etwas flau. 16 Seiten sind falsch paginiert, das Buch ist aber vollständig. Auf der Titelei sind zwei Besitzvermerke von alter Hand, die untere Ecke des Buchblocks ist leicht beschnitten, zahlreiche entfernte Eselsohren, an vielen Stellen dezente Feuchtigkeitsränder, auf den Seiten 193 bis 216 stärker, vereinzelt finden sich Radierspuren, Blatt 7/8 ist gelockert, 227/28 mit Fleck und Loch im weißen Rand, 461 stärker fleckig, die letzten Blätter mit Wurmspur im weißen Rand, nur das letzte Blatt mit kleinem Buchstabenverlust, das letzte Blatt mit hinterlegtem Loch von 1,5 cm Durchmesser und kleinem Textverlust. - Cicero (107 - 44 v. Chr.) war in politischer und philosophischer Hinsicht eine der bemerkenswertesten Persönlichkeiten der römischen Antike. Seine Prosa in Reden und Briefen war meisterhaft und galt den Humanisten nach der Wiederentdeckung der Schriftrollen durch Petrarca und Salutati im 14. Jahrhundert als absolutes Vorbild für den lateinischen Stil (vgl. Greenblatt: Die Wende. Wie die Renaissance entstand.). Neben den Briefen an seinen Bruder Quintus, den Briefen an Brutus und an Atticus bilden die Briefe an Familienmitglieder und an Freunde (epistulae ad familiares) eine eigene Kategorie. Nach der Erfindung des Buchdrucks wurden die Schriften Ciceros häufig verlegt, die Ausgabe mit den Anmerkungen des Reformators Melanchthon ist allerdings recht selten in den Bibliotheken des deutschen Sprachraums zu finden, auch in der Staatsbibliothek Berlin findet sich kein Exemplar. Eine erste Ausgabe dieses Werks erschien bei Froschauer schon 1575. Das Titelblatt mit der humorvollen Druckermarke Froschauers: Frösche, die einen Baum (der Weisheit?) erklettern. Auf die Briefe folgen 102 nicht paginierte Seiten mit den Anmerkungen Melanchthons, darauf 5 Seiten die lateinische Erklärung griechischer Wörter, darauf 11 Seiten \"Nomenclatura\" - ein Register der Adressaten Ciceros - und darauf noch auf 6 Seiten der Brief \"Ciceronis ad Octavium\". Octavian war einer der Triumvirn, die Cicero ermorden ließen. Christoph Hegendorph (Schriftsteller, Evangelischer Theologe und Jurist, 1500 - 1540) und Gisbert (Gybertus) Longolius (ein niederrheinischer Humanist 1507 - 1543) haben zur Gestalt des Textes und den Anhängen beigetragen. - VD 16: C 3057.

        Alexis Zorba ou le Rivage de Crete (Zorba The Greek).

      Paris: Editions Du Chene, 1947. First French edition of Zorba the Greek, published one year after the first Greek edition and six years prior to the first English translation. Octavo, original wrappers. In very good condition. Kazantzakis traveled to Paris frequently throughout his life and spoke French fluently. From 1902 Kazantzakis studied law at the University of Athens, then went to Paris in 1907 to study philosophy. Here he fell under the influence of Henri Bergson. His 1909 dissertation was titled "Friedrich Nietzsche on the Philosophy of Right and the State. Zorba the Greek is the epic tale of a young Greek intellectual who ventures to escape his bookish life with the aid of the boisterous and mysterious Alexis Zorba. Kazantzakis has made a work of stunning genius. The book is about life. How does one live it? How does one deal with the vicissitudes of it? The tragedies? The failures? Does one stand on the sidelines of life and never jump in? Does one fear getting married or fear having children or fear doing any activity that could fail or come to naught? Zorba tells us what to do. And in the end, when the whole bloody mess comes falling down around us, and all our plans and schemes are for naught, what do you do? Dance. Dance as hard and as wild as you can. Spit and fume and sing and smash your heels into the dirt. And laugh at it all. the absurdity of worry and wondering. Zorba shows us the joy of just "being" and "doing". The novel was adapted into a successful 1964 film of the same name as well as a 1968 musical, Zorba.
