Two hundred and forty stencils were made in order to reproduce the contents oft the eighty pages [...]. The text was conceived, designed and organized by Bezalel Schatz [...].

With essays by Robinson Jeffers, Merle Armitage, and Donald Bear. Illustrated with folio reproductions of fifty of Weston's photographs. "Though [50 Photographs] includes all of Weston's genres--landscapes, nudes, still lifes, and portraits--it is an unusual selection, more edgy than iconic. The overall effect. is to make visible the real legacy of Weston's work, the way it influenced so much of what would come after. The 50 photographs are followed by a portrait of Weston himself, taken by his son Cole in Point Lobos in 1946, in which the old man is shown wedged between boulders: alert, watchful, mobile, and as sound as stone" (David Levi-Strauss inThe Book of 101 Books).

        Steeple Bush

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1947 Decorated by Loren MacIver. First edition, limited issue of 751 numbered copies. Signed by Frost on the limitation page. Publisher's tan linen cloth and gray-green paper boards, with MacIver's flower illustration stamped in gilt to the front board, printed on white watermarked wove paper; in the publisher's glassine dust jacket; housed in the publisher's green-gray slipcase. A fine copy; in fine glassine and a fine slipcase. A beautiful copy. Crane A30. Steeple Bush is a collection of Robert Frost's poetry, and it includes "Directive," "One Step Backward Taken," "Home Burial," "The Gift Outright," "An Old Man's Winter Night," and "A Young Birch," among others. Published well after he had established his reputation as one of the best living American poets, Steeple Bush reflects the work of a mature poet who possesses more of a jaded wisdom than his youthful self. However, as Randall Jarrell declares in his 1947 review for The New York Times, "no other living poet has written so well about the actions of ordinary men." Indeed, he avers that "anyone should know this after reading" the poems in the collection. This first edition of Steeple Bush was issued in a limited edition of 751 copies in April 1947 and was followed by a trade issue (the "first impression from the limited edition plates") in the same month, issued in a much larger print run of 7,600 copies.. Illus. by MacIver, Loren. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.

His breakthrough as an author came in 1927 with the novel ?Raskens. The Story of a Soldier?s Family?, where he depicts the life of the tenant farmers in 19th century Småland. His foremost work, which has been widely translated and is considered one of the finest epic works in Swedish 20th century literature, is ?The Emigrant Novels? (1949-1959). In this tetralogy he describes the Swedish emigration to North America through the story of the farmer Karl Oskar Nilsson and his wife Kristina. Moberg was politically engaged and always fought for individual rights, and for the abolition of the monarchy and the State Church of Sweden. He intervened in affairs of corrupt legal practice and published the bestselling book ?Why I am a Republican? (1955). His political views were inspired by his visits to USA and by the Swiss constitution. Moberg had a love affair with a woman named Kristina, whose name he used for the main character Kristina from Duvemåla of ?The Emigrant Novels? This love affair has remained unknown for over half a century, until a collection of his novels, all inscribed by Moberg to Kristina [Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005)], appeared on the market. Judging from the tone in the inscriptions, the relation between Moberg and Kristina was initially intimate and loving, and gradually devolving into affection. In the early inscriptions from the 1940s Moberg writes, for instance: ?To Kristina, my confidant and beloved!?, and in the play ?Chastity? he writes: ?Vilhelm Moberg?s chastity ? what is left of it is hereby dedicated to Kristina? The later in-scriptions from the 1960s contain phrases like: ?with a devout greeting? and ?from her affectionate Vilhelm? In the copy of ?The Emigrants? (?Utvandrarna?, 1949) Moberg writes: ?To Kristina, my be loved, who has lent her name to the female main character in this book, with gratitude and love from The Author.? In the last inscription, in the pocket edition of ?The Emigrant Novels? from 1969, he returns to the fact that she has given her name to Kristina from Duvemåla, which shows that the thought of her had occupied his mind during all these years, and it is also a sign of her probable influence on his writing from 1945 onwards. What further strengthens this opinion is the copy of ?Our Unborn Son?, a play from 1945, which deals with the issue of abortion. This is the only one of these books that has been bestowed with a fine leather binding, with a pocket at end of the volume where Kristina has collected newspaper cuttings on the book and its author, suggesting that the theme of this novel was essential to her. The book was translated into Danish in 1947, and in the collection there is a copy of the Danish edition which has been inscribed to Kristina by the translator thus: ?? This book, which is partly about you?? [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Roger Vieillard (9 février 1907, Le Mans - 1er mars 1989) est un graveur buriniste et illustrateur français, proche des artistes de la nouvelle École de Paris. L'oeuvre de Roger Vieillard, qui compte 662 estampes, est très personnelle, il utilise un trait précis d'une grande habileté, il possède un style unique et identifiable. L'oeuvre de Roger Vieillard est considérée comme l'une des plus importantes dans la gravure du XXe siècle et l'artiste comme « le plus pur des burinistes ». Pour lui le burin «est le seul qui suit avec fidélité les fantaisies de l'esprit. Pénétrant profondément dans le cuivre dont il déchire la surface, son ouvrage est plus proche du ciseau du sculpteur que du pinceau du peintre ». Tenté par l'abstraction et le surréalisme, il a fait évolué sa technique pendant des décennies, jusqu'à ses derniers reliefs gravés, des tirages sur plâtre. L'illustration de livres, une trentaine, représente la moitié de son oeuvre gravé. Il est aujourd'hui exposé dans le Cabinet des Estampes de la Bibliothèque nationale, le musée de Beauvais, la Bibliothèque de Bordeaux, le Musée du dessin et de l'estampe originale de Graveline, le Musée des beaux-arts de Nantes, le Musée d'art moderne et contemporain de Strasbourg, Limited Edition

Economie et Intérêt is Allais's second major publication, a massive work on capital and interest which has formed the basis for the so-called "golden rule of accumulation".

Allais did not publish in English until late in his career and as a result was slow to receive the international recognition that was his due. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Photographs]: 1940s Amateur Nudes from Philadelphia: Photo Album, Slides, Negatives (processed film)

      A collection of clearly amateur nude photographs of one woman, circa 1947-1948. A large group of images of a woman, unidentified; anecdotally found in Philadelphia. One can safely speculate that they were taken by her husband or a regular companion, during several sessions in different rooms or locations, and involving various erotic scenarios, presumably over a year or more. The archive consists of:1. Photo album: Blank album with 70 mounted photographs. Mostly full or partial nudes, largely in a domestic setting, including in a bath tub, on a bed, on a couch, stripping, etc. Different sizes, different qualities in keeping with home development, most are very good. The album has clearly been pillaged or "curated" (whether by the subject or a subsequent owner is unclear) with a significant amount of images lacking (most of those, we think, might be represented in the slides and negatives that accompany the archive).2. Slides: 102 slides of the same subject in two metal slide boxes (one of the boxes is damaged, although the slides are largely very good or better). Slides are in both metal and cardboard frames.3. Loose negatives. Approximately 150-200 loose negatives depicting the same subject. Near fine. Negatives also depict some images not in the photo album including several images outside, and one depicting sexual activity with a man.4. Eight contemporary metal film canisters containing negatives of 35mm Super XX film, mostly cut into small strips of two images each depicting the same subject, perhaps a total of approximately 250-300 negative images.An interesting compilation of nude images depicting a single subject and informing how erotic relationships evolved in the dark ages before polaroids and cell phone cameras changed everything. .

        [Album of Aerial and Cultural Photographs]

      (Alaska, various): np, nd [ca. 1947]. Very good. Oblong folio commercial hardcover album made by The Burkhardt Company, Detroit, model X 89500, 13.5?" x 10.75?" x 2.5?". Screw binding, 74 black paper pages with a single black and white gelatin print mounted recto only to each, most measuring approximately 7.5" x 9?" with brief, typed captions mounted below. Additional print mounted to front cover; 75 photographs total. Album exterior moderately worn, cloth dry and flaking. Three sections of material loss at outer edge of covers and to upper rear, likely mouse-bitten, similar loss to edges of final two pages (not effecting photos). Two images missing captions. Photographs well preserved, occasional mild wear. About very good. An impressive collection of 75 well-annotated, predominantly aerial photographs of pre-statehood Alaska, likely compiled by a U.S. Army Officer stationed at Fort Richardson near Anchorage, just after WWII. 49 images captured from aircraft of some of the most spectacular, unspoiled environments anywhere. Cities, settlements and geographical locations include Galena, Ketchikan, Port Alexander, Sitka, Port Althrop, Skagway, Juneau, Fort Seward, Valdez, Anchorage, Barrow, Nome, the Taku Glacier, Mount McKinley, Mount St. Elias, and Mt. Moffet. The remaining 26 prints, equally as beautiful, though taken at ground level, display the cultural and trade aspects present around 1947. Highlights include an Eskimo mother and daughter on Nelson Island, fishing boats in Ketchikan, totem poles on Wrangell Island, a midnight baseball game, and a full salmon scowl at a cannery in southeast Alaska. Five prints with lettering in the negative, though none with clear evidence as to the purpose behind their creation. Clearly the work of a skilled photographer, an immediately engaging collection of images. NOTE: High resolution scans of this complete album are available.

      New York: D. Appleton-Century Company, Inc., 1947. First Edition. First Printing. Octavo; light gray cloth, with titled and blocked in black on spine and front panel; dustjacket; 281pp. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Goodis to a fellow employee at Warner Brother's: "February 9, 1948. To - Helen Fahringer - who is one of the most pleasant personalities in the Writers' Building at Warners. With my fond wishes - David Goodis." Faint offset to pastedowns, else a tight, Fine copy. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $2.75), lightly spine-sunned, with some light edgewear, 2 short tears to rear panel, with a small scrape at upper corner of front joint; 2" of unnecessary brown paper reinforcement along edges on verso; Very Good+. Behold This Woman is Goodis' most autobiographical novel, a bizarre paean and cathartic payback to his estranged wife, Elaine Astor. The book was commercially successful, but more importantly, Goodis used the novel to lay the foundation for the type of woman his male protagonists would become entangled with; think Mommy Dearest meets The Black Widow. The novel tells the story of Clara Ervin, a manipulative, calculating, and cold-blooded woman who systematically emasculates and ruins her husband, as well as several other men, before meeting a violent death. To some degree, she embodies many characteristics of Goodis' wife Elaine, a central character in his life and the person who, ultimately, dealt him a piercing blow from which he did not recover for the remainder of his days. Books inscribed by Goodis are extremely rare; we know of but a handful of examples which have come to the market, nearly all of which were inscribed to people Goodis worked with at Warner Brothers, during some of the happier times in his life. The recipient was a much-loved secretary at Warner Brothers, working there well into her 70's. An attractive copy of the author's fourth hardcover book, and the only inscribed copy of this title we have seen or handled.

      Alexandria: Whitehead, Morris,, 1947. Octavo. Original green cloth-backed printed boards. Minimum of rubbing to the boards, lower board slightly browned, endpapers browned, text lightly toned, contemporary bookplate of Roger Longfellow Smith to the front pastedown, bookseller's ticket of GMs Books in Cairo to the front free endpaper, a really very good copy. First edition, limited to 500 numbered copies signed by Philby, this numbered 316. Philby had originally approached John Murray to publish the present work with the intention of establishing himself as an authority on pre-islamic Arabia, but Murray rejected the manuscript having established that much of Philby's source material had been superseded. Philby, undaunted in his self-belief, published at his own expense. Philby had converted to Islam in 1930 and was known among his Arabian associates as Sheikh Abdullah.
