        Foundations of Economic Analysis.

      Harvard University Press, Cambridge 1947 - First Edition of the author's magnum opus and one of the most influential economic texts of the twentieth century. Octavo, original burgundy cloth with titles in gilt. An excellent copy with light wear to the boards, else near fine. Lacking the rare dust jacket. Signed "Paul A. Samuelson MIT" on the title page. Rare, especially signed. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Paul Samuelson is one of the developers of both neo-Keynesian and neoclassical economics, the latter of which still dominates mainstream economics. He was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1970 for having written considerable parts of economic theory. The title of this work "was meant to be exactly as ambitious as it sounds, and the book's impact on the profession has largely justified it For the first time in a book in English on economic principles, the mathematics, instead of being relegated to an appendix, provided the skeleton of the argument Fifty years after it was written, the Foundations (together with Hicks' Value and Capital) is still one of the most inspiring classics of general equilibrium economics (Niehans, History of Economic Theory, 423).

        Rid i natt! Roman från Värend 1650. Illustrerad med trägravyrer av Harald Sallberg.

      Stockholm; Bonniers, 1947. (Romaner i folkupplaga). 19,5x13 cm. 347, (2, 3 blanka) s. Häftad med tryckt omslag. Ouppskuren. Det överdimensionerade omslaget är veckat i nedre marginalerna samt vid ryggfoten. Några obetydliga fläckar på ryggen. Fint ex. Dedikation: ''Kristina -- till minnet av den 2-3 juni 1947 -- Författaren / 'Du sjöng för mig om kärlek intill döden -- än brusar i min själ din blå koral' (Gullberg)''. Mottagaren Kristina Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005) hade under 40-talet och möjligen även senare en kärleksaffär med Moberg, som döpte Kristina i Utvandrarserien efter henne. Kärleksaffären upptäcktes via en svit om 30 böcker som Moberg dedicerat till henne. I exemplaret av Utvandrarna (1949) skriver han: "Till Kristina, min älskade, som lånat sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i denna bok, med tacksamhet och kärlek från Författaren", ett intyg som upprepas så sent som 1969 i pocketupplagan av Utvandrarserien: " Den 29/3 1969. / Till Kristina -- hon som givit sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i utvandrarromanen och till Minnet / med innerlig tillgivenhet från Författaren", vilket visar att hon var fullt närvarande i hans tankevärld under hela denna tid och därmed mycket väl kan ha påverkat hans senare litterära produktion. Vad som ytterligare talar för detta är exemplaret av Vår ofödde son, en pjäs från 1945 som behandlar abort-problematik. Detta är den enda av böckerna som Kristina låtit binda in i ett påkostat rött skinnband, med en pärmficka längst bak där hon samlat tidningsartiklar om boken och dess författare. I Kristinas exemplar av den danska utgåvan av samma bok, utgiven 1947, finns en dedikation från översättaren: "Kaera Kristina! / Denne Bog, den til Dels handler om dig, sendes dig til Erindring -- ikke om Forfattaren, men om Oversatteren. / Din Carl Erik''

        Haute Surveillance [Deathwatch]

      Paris: Cinéastes-Bibliophiles, 1947. First Edition, First Printing. Actor Charles Boyer's copy of Jean Genet's startling play about three prisoners in the same cell. Octavo, 103 pages. Original cream wrappers. The pages are slightly age-toned and the heavy card wrappers are somewhat tanned. But overall, this is an excellent copy of an hors-commerce edition that amounted to only 60 copies. The justification page states: "Exemplaire de Monsieur CHARLES BOYER." Rare. Haute Surveillance [Deathwatch] was Jean Genet's earliest play and was first performed in Paris in 1949. As drama critic Martin Esslin notes in "The Theatre of the Absurd," the play "is largely a dramatized form of the type of story [Genet] tells in his lyrical narratives about the lives of criminals and convicts."

        UNDER THE VOLCANO (Advance Review PROOF, the superb H. Bradley Martin copy)

      Reynal & Hitchcock 1947 - Lowry, Malcolm. UNDER THE VOLCANO. New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1947. First Edition. Publisher's original uncorrected PROOF COPY in original wrappers, the finest known example, sporting only a few tiny insignificant blemishes but otherwise surviving virtually as new. From the legendary library of H. Bradley Martin (bookplate). Of the few known surviving proofs of Lowry's great 20th century masterpiece, this is the only one we know of which hasn't been the victim of all sorts of problems, many stemming from the pale color of the wrappers which basically soil just by looking at them. UNDER THE VOLCANO is on virtually every major list of the 100 most important (or best) novels of the 20th century (Modern Library, Time, Le Monde, et cetera) and copies of the first edition which haven't been restored or repaired are rare indeed. It was adapted into film in 1984 starring Albert Finney and Jacqueline Bisset, directed by John Huston, winning several Oscar nominations. The novel had originally been accepted in London by the prestigious publishing house of Jonathan Cape which, however, demanded extensive changes. Lowry, passionate in defense of his novel's raw, unattractive, and uncompromising intensity, chose the relatively obscure New York firm of Reynal & Hitchcock to publish it exactly as it was intended, leading to smaller publishing numbers and further accounting for the rarity of the first edition. Quick plot summary: Against a background of war breaking out in Europe and the Mexican fiesta Day of Death, we are taken through one day in the life of Geoffrey Firmin, a British consul living in alcoholic disrepair and obscurity in a small southern Mexican town in 1939. The Consul's self-destructive behavior is a source of perplexity and sadness to his nomadic, idealistic half-brother, Hugh, and his ex-wife, Yvonne, who has returned with hopes of healing Geoffrey and their broken marriage. Firmin's best friend is alcohol, and lots of it, as he constantly tries to drown out the world's and his own personal problems. The former category includes the Spanish Civil War, the rise of Nazism in Germany and the associated effect it has on Mexican nationalism. The latter category mostly concerns his recent divorce from his actress wife and the nearly-as-violent inner war which her reappearance has kindled in the wreckage of his emotions. Originally written in 1940, it is still a powerful read today perhaps as evidenced by the fact it has never once been out of print in the last sixty-five years. Housed in a very attractive red quarter-morocco slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

In Zimmermanns malerischem und zeichnerischem Oeuvre sind Bildnisse seiner Kinder, zwei Knaben und ein Mädchen, die zwischen 1838 und 1842 geboren wurden, mehrfach anzutreffen. Es ist davon auszugehen, daß unsere Zeichnung um 1840 entstanden ist. Zimmermann besuchte die Akademie in Dresden von 1818-1825 bei F. Hartmann (1774-1842) und J.C. Rößler (1775-1845). Anschließend reiste er mit Carl Peschel (1798-1879) nach Rom, wo er 5 Jahre blieb und vermutlich Kontakte zum Kreis der Nazarener unterhielt. 1929 unternahm er mit Josef von Führich (1800-1876) eine Reise nach Neapel. 1830-1835 lebte er in Dresden, bis 1846 in Münster und Düsseldorf. 1837 heiratete er seine langjährige Verlobte Amalie Geller und holte sie nach Düsseldorf.

        Autograph Letter Signed to George Sylvester Viereck [and] Compliments slip with an inscription

      Sm. Ayot St. Lawrence: Sept. 25, 1947. Sm. 8vo, 5 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches, written ink on letterhead, framed with a portrait of Shaw, and a compliments slip inscribed by Shaw. Framed with a portrait of Shaw. A very good letter from Shaw to Viereck (1884-1962), a well-known and highly regarded German-American author who was jailed during WWII on specious grounds and not released until 1947. He wrote about the experience in a book ???Men into Beasts??? now seen as an early example of what evolved into gay pulp fiction. He also published a vampire novel in 1907 which is seen as a very early example of the genre, and early poetry described as Uranian male love poetry. He was a strong supporter of Hitler???s politics, though not at least overtly anti-Semitic. His son Peter Viereck was a well-known teacher and poet whose conservative positions were controversial. Shaw met George Viereck in the 1920s when Viereck interviewed him during a tour of Europe that included interviews with Hitler, Mussolini, and Einstein. Shaw writes: ???Publishers and editors come to me for my own stuff and they are afraid that if they touch yours they will be understood as endorsing your politics. And I havenâ??t the faintest notion of what your politics are...I gather from your address that they let you out after five years. You seem to have stood it with extraordinary spirit. Most martyrs are duds... So your lady threw you over! Take care: she may come back. I am very very old. Ninety one.â? Boldly signed â??GBSâ??. Also present is a printed compliments slip inscribed by Shaw: â??Go it Harold, go it! Damn the expense. The Malvern Hotel 25/8/30 GBS.â?

        Thoughts On Design

      New York: Wittenborn & Company, 1947. First edition. First edition, stated. Very good or better in a near fine unclipped dust jacket, which shows the slightest edgewear but is overall quite bright. Front hinge starting, with a 2 inch split to the lower edge. This copy inscribed, dated and signed by Rand on the front free endpaper. This copy also with a handmade dust jacket protector which appears to have been signed by Rand. This book is well known to have been a hugely influential cornerstone title in the literature of contemporary graphic design; it has been reported that the first edition printing was quite small and quickly followed by a much larger second printing. Copies of this title signed in the year of publication are few and far between. Copies with an attractive dust jacket are also something less than common. Copies signed in the year of publication with an attractive dust jacket are genuinely rare.

He also published a vampire novel in 1907 which is seen as a very early example of the genre, and early poetry described as Uranian male love poetry. He was a strong supporter of Hitler?s politics, though not at least overtly anti-Semitic. His son Peter Viereck was a well-known teacher and poet whose conservative positions were controversial. Shaw met George Viereck in the 1920s when Viereck interviewed him during a tour of Europe that included interviews with Hitler, Mussolini, and Einstein. Shaw writes: ?Publishers and editors come to me for my own stuff and they are afraid that if they touch yours they will be understood as endorsing your politics. And I haven?t the faintest notion of what your politics are...I gather from your address that they let you out after five years. You seem to have stood it with extraordinary spirit. Most martyrs are duds... So your lady threw you over! Take care: she may come back. I am very very old. Ninety one.? Boldly signed ?GBS?. Also present is a printed compliments slip inscribed by Shaw: ?Go it Harold, go it! Damn the expense. The Malvern Hotel 25/8/30 GBS.?

        Occupation Japan Captured In the Photographs of an Australian Serviceman

      An album with 128 original b/w photographs of Australian soldiers in Japan as part of the British Commonwealth Occupation Force, 1947 - 1948. A Japanese black lacquer album with a painted view of Mount Fuji with mother-of-pearl inlays, papered spine. Head and tail of spine torn with a little loss. Album is chipped and a little worn in places at edges, tissue guards marked and creased. The album in very good and the photographs in the main are in excellent condition, a few a little faded. Containing altogether 120 black and white photographs in various formats (6.7 x 11 cm - 11.5 x 16 cm) all with typed captions (30 with captions in the white margin of the photographic paper, the others with captions typed onto thin strips of paper pasted below). 8 professional colour photographic views of Tokyo laid in towards the rear of the album also neatly captioned. Lacks 5 small photographs, which as their captions remain, it is clear that 3 were portraits, one showed a picnic scene and the fifth was likely a view of Takarazuka. The photographs in this fascinating album were taken by an Australian sergeant stationed at Kobe in 1947 and 1948. The first photograph in the album is of a group of three Australian soldiers posing in front of Parliament House (National Diet building) in Tokyo. There are overall approximately 50 photographs showing scenery and Japanese people, including boys in a boat, street scenes, peasants at work, a Japanese woman and child in traditional kimono with sun umbrellas, the interior of a temple, a taxi, a man on a bike with his two sons on the back seat, Japanese buildings under repair, an aerial view of devastated Kobe, cherry blossom, temples, the swimming pool at Kobe etc. A few photographs show leisure activities such as Australian men and women taking refreshments at a cricket match at Kobe (but also 2 of the actual match!), beach scenes, and the Kyoto races. The majority of photographs are of Australian (and New Zealand) army personnel out and about in Kobe or inside the BCOF headquarters. Interestingly there are also 26 photographs of Japanese staff working at the BCFO headquarters as typists and serving staff. 15 of these show them together with Australian soldiers including a group of 10 photographs of a picnic with three Japanese women (named in the caption 'Myra, Jane and Shorty'). Another group photograph shows an Australian soldier identified as Tom Lawry with a group of 16 Japanese people identified as 'staff of Sergeants mess Kobe'. Lawry has his arms around the Japanese woman sitting in front of him. There are also photographs of the BCFO headquarters, including the entrance to the camp, a 'Room No. 15', the sergeants?' dining room, the chapel and cemetery, Christmas parties, and a 'BCSA' Anniversary party. A group photograph shows the 19 members of the Sergeants mess Kobe 1948. Two loosely tipped-in photographs show a guard change. Throughout the album, three of the Australian soldiers are identified by name, however the compiler of the album signs portraits of himself only as 'Yours truly'. 5 photographs have been removed from the album. Provenance: Tasmania. Loosely tipped-in is also the photograph of a military (?) brass band with photographer's rubber stamp verso (Winter's - Burnie [Tas.] and with the pencil note 'Hurst'. A fascinating record of Australians serving in post-WWII Japan. While the Australian forces in occupied Japan appear to be reasonably well-documented, private photographs such as these, and particularly from Kobe, are very scarce and rarely offered for sale. .

        Landscape with Red Tree and White Birches

      1947. Oil on canvas by Cummings, who did not title his paintings; the title given here is purely descriptive. 18" x 24". "By E.E. Cummings" written on the wood frame, apparently in another's hand. Cummings signed only a small fraction of his work, deliberately and for philosophical reasons: he believed the work should stand on its own -- and be judged on its own merits or faults -- rather than be judged by who the creator of it was. When he backed away from the New York art scene in the late 1920s and early 1930s, Cummings was backing away from what he considered to be an artistic milieu driven by personality and ego rather than by art. After his early period as an abstract artist, he focused on representational art for the rest of his life, but often -- as in this painting -- he used a palette and a style that owed much to his early influences among modern artists: Cezanne, Matisse, and the Fauvists. One tack missing from the top of the stretched canvas; else fine. No Binding.

        [78 rpm album]: Songs To Grow On: Nursery Days [With original booklet inscribed:] Songs To Grow On: Nursery Days

      New York: DISC Company, 1947. Original half black and red paper boards, paper sleeves housing three 78 rpm discs; original booklet (measuring 5-1/2 by 8 inches) laid in. Oblong 4to. Three 78 rpm discs in fine condition, lightest edge-wear to original album boards; laid-in booklet in fine condition. ?'THE BOUNCY, OPEN RHYMINESS OF BEING A KID?": ORIGINAL DISC COMPANY ALBUM OF GUTHRIEÕS SONGS TO GROW ON, WITH ORIGINAL DISC BOOKLET INSCRIBED BY GUTHRIE. Original album of three 78 rpm discs containing the first recordings of six beloved childrenÕs songs by Guthrie, composed with and for his beloved daughter Cathy, ?'the most important Guthrie recordings on DISC?"?'given to the recipient with a laid-in original booklet from Moe AschÕs legendary DISC Company inscribed on the title page, ?'Our latest album, Woody Guthrie.?" This rare album, with a distinctive association, is from the estate of GuthrieÕs close and intimate correspondent Charlotte Strauss. ?'The most important Guthrie recordings on DISC Records before its demise [in 1947] were his childrenÕs songsÉ Woody made up songs to sing to his daughter Cathy, to whom he referred lovingly as Miss StackabonesÉ. Many of these are still loved by children today. In 1947, DISC released Songs to Grow On: Nursery Days (Disc 605)É Owing to their importance, GuthrieÕs childrenÕs recordings were among the very first Asch issued whenever a new format came along?" (Santelli, 64). GuthrieÕs music and lyrics for the Songs to Grow On series of albums, composed for and with his beloved daughter Cathy, possess an artless glow that makes them ?'truly childrenÕs songs?"?'the work of a man whose ?'innocence [and] childlike quality of wonderÉ were more than just a pose?'he actually seemed to shed 30 years of experience and see the world as Cathy didÉ the bouncy, open rhyminess of being a kid. It was somehow inevitable, once he returned from the army [in early 1946] and began spending more time with her, that he and Cathy would become collaborators in fact as well as spirit?" (Klein, 324-5). In early 1947 Cathy Guthrie died in a tragic fire at age six. With laid-in original booklet for the DISC Company Songs to Grow On album series. With three original 78 rpm discs in original paper sleeves: ?'Needle Sing?" (5074A), ?'Pick It Up?" (5074B); ?'Build a House?" (5073A), ?'Pretty and Shinyo?" (5073B); ?'My Little Seed?" (5075A), ?'All Work Together?" (5075B). Cover illustration by Thelma Martin. New Grove, 856. From the estate of Charlotte Strauss, whose revealing and often passionate correspondence with Guthrie began in 1945, intensified as he completed his tour with the Army, and continued over several years. A scarce about-fine album with a notable association.
