        Économie & Intérêt;

      Paris: Imprimerie Nationale,, 1947. Présentation nouvelle des problèmes fondamentaux relatives au rôle économique du taux de l'intérêt et de leurs solutions. 2 volumes, octavo. Original printed paper wrappers, with the wrap around belly band. Custom cloth solander case. First 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". This states that to maximise real income, the optimum rate of interest should equal the growth rate of the economy. 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.

"With Bartók, [Kodály] was one of the creators of a new Hungarian art music based on folk sources, and he laid the foundation for the development of a broadbased and musically literate cultureÂ… With the success of the Psalmus hungaricus Kodály had made a fresh start, and his career gained further momentum with the premières of the Singspiel Háry János (Budapest, 16 October 1926) and of the six-movement suite drawn from it (Barcelona, 24 March 1927). These works consolidated KodályÂ’s stature the world over: Toscanini and Mengelberg, Ansermet and Furtwängler were among the first to include them in their programmes. " László E sze et al in Grove online Universal published Kodály's arrangement for cello and piano of Bach's 3 Chorale Preludes in 1924; we have not located an arrangement by Kodály for string orchestra of any of Bach's chorales published by AMP.

        ROCKET SHIP GALILEO

      Charles Scribner's Sons [1947], New York - Octavo, illustrated by Thomas Voter, cloth. The importance of this book cannot be overstated, as it is the first published novel (in book form), by one of the major, if not the most, important science fiction writer of post-war America. Heinlein established himself in the field of science fiction during the golden age of Astounding Science Fiction (starting in 1939), he would later introduce a generation of baby boomer children to this literary genre. After World War II, Heinlein's career expanded the reach of the genre by being published in the 'slick' magazines of the period (Saturday Evening Post and others) and he also began a series of juvenile novels to be published by the mainstream firm of Charles Scribner's Sons. Their reach was wide, especially into the library marketplace were many young children would encounter them. This title is ".the first US juvenile sf novel to reflect the new levels of characterization, style and scientific plausibility now expected in the field", ".it was the first in a series that represents the most important contribution any single writer has made to children's SF." - Clute and Nicholls: The Science Fiction Encyclopedia (1994), p. 554-557. "A pioneering novel that began American mainstream science fiction for children and combined young protagonists, gadgetry, current science, and adventure in such a way that even today the book retains interest." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 5-62. George Pal's 1950 film Destination Moon is loosely based on ROCKET SHIP GALILEO. Heinlein co-authored the screenplay and served as a technical advisor to the production, along with German rocket expert Hermann Oberth. Destination Moon, the first of Pal's many sf films, "has great historical importance: its commercial success initiated the sf film boom of the 1950s, after a decade that had contained almost no sf cinema at all. It has interest in hindsight, too, in the partial accuracy with which it anticipated the actual Moon landing of 1969. To this day, Destination Moon stands as a film obvious made by people who knew about science." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Science Fiction Encyclopedia (1994), p. 324. Light damp stain to lower right front cover, along bottom front edge and lower left rear corner, previous owner's bookplate with name in ink affixed to half title page, a very good copy in a very good first state dust jacket (printed price of $2.00) with damp stain to verso along lower edges, no show through, and mild rubbing along front flap fold.

        Walt Disney's Uncle Remus Stories

      1947. Same old Uncle Remus, Disney-fiedDISNEY, Walt, Studios. Walt Disney's Uncle Remus Stories. Retold by Marion Palmer from the original "Uncle Remus" Stories by Joel Chandler Harris. Pictures by Al Dempster and Bill Justice. Adapted from the Characters and Backgrounds created by Walt Disney Motion Picture "Song of the South" and other Walt Disney adaptations of the original "Uncle Remus" stories. New York: Simon and Schuster, [1947]. First printing. Thin folio ( 12 3/4 x 10 inches: 323 x 253 mm.). [5]-92 pp. Color printed title-page and two full-page color illustrations. Four double-page and thirty-four smaller color illustrations, numerous black and white illustrations throughout the text.Publisher's color pictorial boards with just the lightest wear to the spine ends, otherwise fine. Original color pictorial dust jacket also fine."The Artist -Walt Disney is beloved among children the world over through the characters he has created - Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Dumbo, and the rest. In this book, as in his motion picture Song of the South, he has recreated in irresistible Disney fashion an animal group that has kept children, and adults too, laughing down through two generations. Here are the same old Uncle Remus characters in the same old trials and triumphs - but now visualized as never before. Faithful to the original inspired conceptions of Joel Chandler Harris, Walt Disney has given these talking animals a new dimension, showing them in energetic life against the backgrounds of the old South, and bringing to readers young and old a wealth of classic fun.""The Stories -Joel Chandler Harris, born in Georgia in 1848, grew up to become a newspaper man of notable accomplishments. But he is remembered today mainly for the stories he told through the imaginary old Negro character Uncle Remus. Today, sixty-odd years after Uncle Remus first spoke in book form, the stories have every bit of the old charm - the wit, liveliness, and wisdom of the storyteller, and the liveliness and shrewd characterizations of the animals themselves. Helen Palmer, in presenting the original stories in somewhat simpler form, gives old Uncle Remus a new appeal and a far wider audience." (Rear Flap)

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. Wegen bedrängender finanziellerBis zu seinem Tode lebte er dann in Breslau. Dort fand er die Unterstützung vom Fürstbischof Heinrich II.

        Thoughts On Design

      Wittenborn & Company, New York 1947 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
