"Throughout his career, Amis has been a poet devoted to use of traditional formal devices in poetry; his poems rhyme and scan, and he makes good use of terza rima and challenging forms likes the villanelle. Sometimes critics claim membership for him in "The Movement," a postwar trend in English poetry, that might best be defined as anti-Modernist, anti-Romantic, dedicated to claity of thought and feeling and a return to the main lines of English verse." (Understanding Kingsley Amis, Merritt Moseley, 1993). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        You Touched Me! - A Romantic Comedy in Three Acts, Suggested by a short story of the same name by D.H. Lawrence.

      Samuel French, New York. 1947 - First edition, the much scarcer cloth issue. Octavo. pp [iv], 114. Photographs. The cast of the first production, in 1945, of this obscure play included a young Montgomery Clift. Windham provided a note on his collaboration with Williams in the programme: "Our shared laughter was perhaps the strongest bond between us. To the often-asked question, 'How did you and Tennessee collaborate?' I can best answer that we did it by departing as little as possible from our nonworking pleasure in each other's company, in each other's sense of humor, improvising dialogue, viva voce, in that small room, laughing at our inventions, taking turns typing on my portable typewriter, and going down to the pool to swim."Slight bruise at head of spine, otherwise fine in very good, price-clipped dustwrapper a little darkened at spine and rubbed at edges.

        DI VORSHVANDENE VELT = THE VANISHED WORLD

      New York: Forward Association(1947). Oblong 4to; 575 pages; First edition. Original Publisher's Cloth. Oblong 4to. 575, [7] pages. illus. 20 x 27 cm. In Yiddish and English throughout. A defining work on the lost Jewish communities of Europe. Others have come out in the last 2 decades, but this was the first (many, though by no means all, photos are by Vishniak) . Documenting Jewish life in Eastern Europe with over 600 photos (and text in English and Yiddish) , this work was an early post-war portrayal of these communities within the obvious context that they were gone forever, some with almost no trace of their thousand year histories remaining. Abramovitch himself was a refugee from this world--he was a leader of the Mensheviks in exile who worked at the Jewish Daily Forward and was also active in the Bund. Published as a memorial to these extinct communities, the book is bound in attractive heavy red linen with gilt spine and cover lettering in English and Yiddish, with a paper label (with a woodcut design) on the front. Bit of discoloration to covers, faint shadow from spine label, otherwise Very good condition. Excellent copy. (HOLO2-75-11A)

        TLS to Sonia Brownell

      Np, London 1947 - 1p. TLS, 150 x 200mm, typed on recto only, printed address and telephone number to head. Faint folds from original posting (envelope not present), a single small stain to lower third (not affecting text) TLS, DATED 3 FEBRUARY 1947, TO SONIA BROWNELL FROM HER THEN LOVER AND FUTURE HUSBAND GEORGE ORWELL, ON ORWELL'S PERSONAL STATIONERY. The letter reads: 'Dear Sonia, This is to introduce Mr. Francois la Duchene, who is very anxious to do some journalism and who I think might be useful to you. As you see by his name he is French, but actually he is bi-lingual. He is interested in contemporary French literature and I think he would like to write something about Claudel, but perhaps you could have a talk with him. Yours, Geo. Orwell [sgd.] GEORGE ORWELL' In 1945 Sonia Brownell had been taken on as an editorial assistant at Horizon, the literary magazine launched by Cyril Connolly in 1940 as a defiant gesture against the onset of barbarism. It had thrived. Brownell soon established herself as one of the figures in the Horizon workforce, taking over much of the editorial control ceded by Connolly when he began to devote more time to his own writing. Towards the end of 1945 Sonia and George Orwell attended the same dinner party. He was smitten, but she wasn't much impressed: a typically English cold fish. But her job at Horizon had brought her into the orbit of his writing: his intellect was attractive, and so was the fact that he was, in her experience, 'the only intellectual who could mend a fuse or an iron.' Their affair was desultory. Orwell left London for Jura in the Scottish Hebrides in 1946: it was good for his productivity -- he wrote Nineteen Eighty Four there -- but bad for his already fragile health. He failed to persuade Sonia to join him there, and the couple had little further contact until 1949, when Sonia visited the now mortally ill Orwell in the Cotswolds sanatorium to which his tuberculosis had confined him. On 13 October the couple were married at Orwell's bedside. Orwell died in January the following year. This letter is dated 3 February 1947, and is typed on Orwell's own stationery, bearing his address ('27B Canonbury Square Islington N1') and telephone number ('Canonbury 3751'). That it is written to Sonia at all bears witness to the clout she wielded in the Horizon offices, but Orwell's letter of introduction came to nothing: Francois Duchene -- a distinguished journalist who, between 1969 and 1974 was to become the Director of the International Institute of Strategic Studies -- never had anything published by Horizon. A routine, everyday letter of introduction, then, but the identities of the correspondents make it an extremely rare one. The Orwell archive at UCL contains two letters from Orwell to Sonia: one written to her from Jura and dated 12 April 1947; the second dated 24 May 1949 and written from the sanatorium in Cranham Lodge where Orwell had been confined since January. (The couple announced their engagement in September that year). We can find no record of a letter between the two having been sold at auction, and this is the earliest letter of the three we've located.

        COURS D'ASTRONOMIE ET DE GEODESIE - 1847

      POLITECHNIQUE 1947 - - Ouvrage rarissime de ce grand savant à qui l'on doit le Théorème de CHASLE entre autres. - 1947, cours Ronéotypé manuscrit, Ecole Polytechnique. - In-quarto demi chagrin, dos à cinq nerfs ornés de filets dorés, titre et auteur aux fers dorés. - 664 pages (dont Analyse des 27 Leçons p. 639) ornées de nombreuses illustrations, dessins et figures, dans le texte. Michel Chasles, né le 15 novembre 1793 à Épernon, mort le 18 décembre 1880 à Paris, est un mathématicien français. On lui doit d'importants travaux en géométrie projective, où il montra toute la richesse de la notion de rapport anharmonique, ainsi qu'en analyse harmonique, avec la représentation de certains potentiels. Michel Chasles est l'un des 72 savants dont le nom est inscrit sur le premier étage de la tour Eiffel. Il est le 11e, sur la face tournée vers le Nord. Il entra en 1812 à l'Ecole polytechnique et en sortit en 1811. Successivement ingénieur, agent de change, professeur, il ne cesse de cultiver les sciences mathématiques et surtout la géométrie, qu'il a enrichie d'une foule de théorèmes nouveaux et importants. D'abord on le voit s'occuper de la transformation du cercle et de la sphère en ellipse et en ellipsoïde, par la réduction, en un rapport constant, de leurs ordonnées comptées à partir d'un diamètre ou d'un plan diamétral. Il arrive, par cette méthode, à étendre les résultats acquis par ses devanciers, sur l'enveloppe de la sphère tangente à trois autres, au cas où il s'agirait d'ellipsoïdes semblables seulement placés. Il se consacre ensuite à des recherches sur les sections coniques confocales, sur les perspectives stéréographiques. A partir de 1830, il collabore activement à la Correspondance mathématique et physique de Belgique. En 1837 paraît, sous les auspices de l'Académie royale des Sciences de Bruxelles, son Aperçu historique sur l'origine et le développement des méthodes en géométrie, suivi de deux mémoires sur la dualité et l'homographie. Jusqu'en 1852, il ne cesse de produire des travaux originaux sur les courbes et les surfaces, les lignes géodésiques. Alors il compose sa géométrie supérieure. Elle met le comble à sa renommée et le place au nombre des mathématiciens originaux des temps modernes. En 1865, la Société royale de Londres lui décerne la médaille de Copley, la plus haute récompense honorifique que l'Angleterre puisse donner au savant le plus méritant de l'univers. On lui doit aussi le THEOREME DE CHASLE, qui établit que toute fonction harmonique, c'est-à-dire toute fonction qui est une solution de l'équation de Laplace, peut se représenter par un potentiel de simple couche sur l'une quelconque de ses surfaces équipotentielles.

The rest of the album features photographs from the events including a parade through town, dancing, music, and people in traditional Native American dress. Other pages include clippings from the program from the events and local newspapers one of which shows a "Hopi dance chanter and a Hopi dancer;" another reads "Indian Squaws from Ute, Navajo, and Laguna Tribes." One photograph portrait of a man reads "Kolachaftewa, chief of the Hopi Buffalo clan" and another shows Tony Whitecloud the "founder of the modern Hoop Dance."A modest but interesting collection of photographs following a Native American cultural event in the 1940s.
