      - 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.

        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.

        Harry Truman

      October 30, 1947. Typed Letter Signed <I>“Harry S. Truman”</I> as President, one page, 8” x 10.5”. The White House, Washington, October 30, 1947. To Honorable James E. Webb, Director, Bureau of the Budget, Washington, D.C. Plastic tape stain, 0.5” x .75”, in blank lower right where a 5” x 3” Autograph Note Signed <I>“HST”</I> to Webb was affixed – ANS, with identical 0.5” x .75” plastic tape stain, is present. 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 />

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) Fine in Fine dust jacket. Fine in Fine dust jacket.
