        Song of Robin Hood

      Cambridge, MA: The Riverside Press, 1947. First edition. Quarto, original cloth. Inscribed by Virginia Lee Burton, "Greetings to the 'Caner' from Virginia Lee Burton." Near fine in the original dust jacket with some wear and tear. Anne Malcolmson, Grace Castagnetta, and Caldecott medalist Virginia Lee Burton joined forces in 1947 to produce the definitive edition of The Song of Robin Hood. Their triumphant achievement was one of the most distinctive presentations of the legend ever published, and it received a Caldecott Honor Medal in 1948. Through meticulous research and unfailing perseverance, Anne Malcolmson rediscovered fifteen of the original ballads of Robin Hood; Grace Castagnetta adapted them to modern musical notation. Virginia Lee Burton spent three years on drawings to accompany the songs, ultimately producing a work of art filled with exquisite detail and worthy of comparison to the greatest illuminated manuscripts of the medieval era.

        LADY IN THE LAKE (1947)

      MGM 1947 - Set of eight (8) vintage original 14 x 11" (35 x 28 cm.) lobby cards, USA. Robert Montgomery, Audrey Totter, Lloyd Nolan, Leon Ames, Jayne Meadows, dir: Robert Montgomery; MGM. Strong graphics and layout highlight the film noir feel of this rare set of cards. Raymond Chandler's character Phillp Marlowe is presented first person through the camera's view, allowing the audience to solve the mystery along with him. This film was close in spirit to the novel and is one of the finest adaptations of a Chandler book. This is an absolutely wonderful set showing key tense moments from this bizarre film. Of all the classic '40s Phillip Marlowe films, this is one of the toughest titles to find, and this is certainly a very difficult set to find complete. Minor creasing to top left of title card as well as a tiny border tear and rub at the mid-left margin, a repaired tear at the bottom middle edge of card no. 2, mended tear at bottom left side of card no. 7, otherwise all are very clean and without pinholes.

        UNION PACIFIC DINING CAR COOK BOOK AND SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS. MANUAL OF RECIPES AND SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS

      Omaha, NE: Union Pacific Railroad/Dining Car & Hotel Department, [no date, between 1947 and 1954] A cook book used by the Union Pacific railroad for its name passenger trains. This particular copy was identified by a previous owner with an attractive flowered cover of a menu from the Los Angeles Limited fixed to the inside of the front cover. Beginning in 1905 the Los Angeles Limited was the flagship train of the Union Pacific between Chicago and Los Angeles. Service finally ceased in 1954 as ridership declined. The binder begins with eight pages of service instructions, followed by sixteen sections of recipes. The sections are lettered A through P and are complete according to the list of contents. The lettering does not correspond to the type of recipe, i.e. beef is under the letter I, and desserts under the letter M, and so on. The previous owner fixed fine glossy photographs of the interior of the dining cars, the patrons and staff from the early 1900's through the 1950's, the exterior of the dining cars, the chefs in the kitchens preparing meals, the dining car being loaded with supplies from the commissary, and finally on the inside of the rear cover a photograph of a menu from 1946 used on this famous name train, seventeen original photographs in all. OCLC records only three copies and does not hazard a date other than that of 1954 when UP ceased the trains operation. Bound in original black vinyl three ring binder with lettering on the front cover in gold. The three ring binder allowed the book to be opened flat for easy reading of the recipes. A fine copy of this well cared for cook book.. Three ring binder.

        POLITICS AND THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE AN ESSAY

      [Evansville, IN: Printed by Herbert W. Simpson, Inc.], December 1947.. 12mo. Printed wrappers. Illustrations. A fine copy. First separate US edition of this essay, reprinted from its US publication in THE NEW REPUBLIC. From a total edition of 470 copies, this is one of fifty copies designated for distribution as a Christmas Greeting to friends of Paul A. Bennett. The text first appeared in HORIZON in April 1946, and soon became one of Orwell's most frequently anthologized and reprinted essays. One among several of his observations, at least when judging the utterances of the vocal extremes, remains particularly timely: "In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible."

        The Transistor, a Semiconductor Triode," and "Nature of Forward Current in Germanium Point Contacts," and "Modulation of Conductance of Thin Films of Semi-Conductors by Surface Changes" in The Physical Review Volume 74, I July-December 1948. pp. 230-231; pp. 231-232; pp. 232-233 [Full Volume]

      FIRST EDITION of John Bardeen, Walter Brittain and William Shockley's development of the transistor, a discovery that in many ways invented the information age. "In 1947, John Bardeen and Walter Brattain, working at Bell Telephone Laboratories, were trying to understand the nature of the electrons at the interface between a metal and a semiconductor. They realized that by making two point contacts very close to one another, they could make a three terminal device - the first "point contact" transistor.They quickly made a few of these transistors and connected them with some other components to make an audio amplifier. This audio amplifier was shown to chief executives at Bell Telephone Company, who were very impressed that it didn't need time to "warm up" (like the heaters in vacuum tube circuits). They immediately realized the power of this new technology.This invention was the spark that ignited a huge research effort in solid state electronics. Bardeen and Brattain received the Nobel Prize in Physics, 1956, together with William Shockley, "for their researches on semiconductors and their discovery of the transistor effect" (Nobel Prize Committee). CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Physical Society. 4to. (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Ex-libris with minimal markings (just a library stamp on the title page. Illustration: In-text illustrations throughout. Binding: Bound in green cloth with gilt-lettered spines. Some rubbing and scuffing to the edge and spine tips. Solidly and very tightly bound. Interior: Occasional toning and spotting within; minor. Professionally rendered repair to the title page. Very good condition overall. Pictures available upon request.

        Quid Nunc, 1947, Senior Yearbook for the Roland Park Country School, Baltimore, MD

      Baltimore: Roland Park Country School. 1947. Paperback. Good. Adrienne Rich's senior high school yearbook from 1947 with her photograph (a number of times) and a poem by her! Quarto, textured maroon wraps, lettered in gilt, 72 pp., illustrated with photos, ads. Good+ copy, mild creasing and rubbing to binding, contents good to very good, evidence of basement storage, mild occasional dampstaining, slight general mustiness, generally good to very good. A couple inscriptions to previous owner. Rich (1929-2012) attended the very small and swank Roland Park Country School whose graduating class numbered 25 students, describing it later as a "good old fashioned girls' school [that] gave us fine role models of single women who were intellectually impassioned." She was the literary editor of the yearbook and contributes a poem, "Coda" and in all probability a 3pp prose piece called "Class Prophecy" set in the year 1957, which finishes with this prediction: "And here finally is the last of the party. Adrienne Rich has left her ink-pots and proofsheets to make a last appearance among her old companions. When her latest historical novel was attacked for 'inaccuracy and inadequacy of material' by a certain learned specialist in European history, Adrienne, in frustration, decided to retire to Europe to spend her declining years in a houseboat on the Rhine. As she glances about her at the assembled company, her sole comment is -- 'I may be hazy on the past, but I certainly could prophesy the future!' Any further remarks are drowned out as the familiar strains of the Whiffenpoof Song rise above the conversation, and we know that the party has really begun." The poetic contribution, 'Coda,' does not appear to have been reprinted in her collections. In addition, all the graduates contributed drawings and signatures to decorate the endpapers, Rich among them, with her signature and drawing of an inkwell with a pixie-like face on it. RARE -- only one OCLC entry for Roland Park yearbooks and without information on what particular years (Godfrey Memorial Library, Middletown CT) they possess. We can't imagine more than a hundred of these were printed, and there are very few likely survivors. Rich's first trade book, the Yale Younger Poets winning 'A Change of World,' published when Rich was only 19, was proceeded by two privately printed and very rare publications when she was just a girl - 'Ariadne' (1939) and 'Not I, But Death' (1941), but there were Roland Park school publications that included work of hers prior to this yearbook, including a literary quarterly of girls' work, 'The Red and the White' and another publication, 'Laughs and Lessons.' So this is by no means the earliest literary publications of Adrienne Rich, but it is one of the rarest, and possibly her most mature effort prior to her college years.

        Magnificent Albert Einstein gelatin silver photo, taken by Philippe Halsman

      [New Jersey], [1947] Photograph, gelatin silver, of Albert Einstein, seated while writing, 1 page, measuring 10.5" x 13.5" visible, matted and framed to overall size of 20" x 23". Limited edition, artist's proof. Signed by Halsman with a raised, etched signature at the bottom right. Condition appears to be superb, other than an insignificant and almost indiscernible flaw to the right of Einstein's head. In 1947, Halsman made what was to become one of his most famous photos of a mournful Albert Einstein, who during the photography session recounted his regrets about his role in the United States pursuing the atomic bomb. The photo would later be used in 1966 on a U.S. postage stamp and in 1999, on the cover of Time, when Time dubbed Einstein as "Person of the Century." Prints of this photo are actually quite common. In April 2012 a print fetched $432,500 at Christies, while a similar print sold at Heritage Auctions several years before this for over $6,500. The present print, made at the same sitting

      - He writes about the importance of his friendship with his correspondent, James Thrall Soby, (1906-1979) author, critic, collector and patron of the arts, particularly modern Art. Soby wrote a biography of Tchelitchew in 1942. Tchelitchew refers to Nellie, Soby's wife Eleanor ("Nellie") Howland, whom he married in February 1938. He begins with an effusive reference to a visit from Soby to see him and his partner, "Charlie," Charles Henri Ford (1913- 2002) writer filmmaker, photographer, and collage artist best known as editor of the Surrealist magazine "View," (1940-1947). Tchelitchew continues noting that he is aware that Soby loves Tchelitchew's painting. "I have so much to tell you on account of the long intervals of time when we have no chance of seing [sic] each other.you have no chance to tell me what yourself you wanted to know from me.you'll here shut me up and get what you wanted to know. I think it would be much farer [sic] if you make an [sic] questionary [sic] of all the things you'll like me to answer, and I will answer to you. If the answers are.confusing on account of my english [sic] and my metaforic [sic] way of thinking - then we'll see each other and discuss the answers one by one.I can help you in that with pleasure answering your questionary [sic] and analysing myself. about the biography was that I was upset by it. When Lincoln's book on me arrived .I was struck with incoherences which certainly have arrived on account of me talking too much in elaboret [sic] way. I think a biography is very important.it has sort of a tree pattern as the inner man too. So as every tree has his special particularity of development based on directions and circumstances, on drought and rains - sun and moon - so have we to. Therefore an [sic] not accurate biography will not only make confusion but will .in error, as far as the analysis of one given man's work.that was of primal importance to me because the facts of my life and carrere [sic] are known far better to me than to others and I do not believe that in exagarating [sic] or inventing on's [sic] biography as many of my friends do they are giving anything but confusion.Naturally the biography is very simple structure.Now to judge an [sic] living artist work not as important because most of judgements [sic] are based on opinions and opinions often are erroneous. The onely [sic] true way to say anything of a contemporary living artists to analyse him in itself - no one gains anything in comparison as if I would look in a hidden mirror.I see in my work certain signs of an order frankly unknown to me until recently.So my dear Jim - please ask me anything you like to know.the work which remains becomes another kind of body, a concentrated one.after all we are the roots that grow our flowers which grow and bloom." He signs, "Pavel." With holograph envelope addressed to Soby and signed again on verso in the return address, "Tchelitchew." The reference to Lincoln is likely to his friend, Lincoln Kirstein (1907-96), writer, New York cultural figure and best known as founder of the New York City Ballet with Balanchine. Tchelitchew also painted Kirstein's portrait. Tchelitchew's most significant work is considered to be "Hide and Seek", painted in 1940-42 the year of Soby's biography. The content of this letter suggests that Tchelitchew wanted to correct Soby's biographical portrait of him. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Eigenh. Briefkarte mit U. ("Louis de Broglie").

      Neuilly-sur-Seine, 8. X. 1947.. 2 SS. Qu.-8vo.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Freund bzw. Kollegen, Mitarbeiter oder Teilnehmer seines Seminars in Antwort auf dessen Schreiben, in dem dieser sich für Informationen bezüglich eines Seminars bedankt und seinerseits seine Vorstellungen über kommende Sitzungen dargelegt hatte. So sei die Formel "M = KM" weder von Blackett noch von Mariani und aus diesem Grund keine Seminarsitzung wert. Die Theorie von Mariani halte er ohnehin für anfechtbar: "Puisque la formule M = KM n'est ni de Blackett ni de Mariani, il n'est en effet pas utile de consacrer une de nos seances a cette question. D'ailleurs, comme je vous l'ai dit, la theorie de Masiani me parait contestable [...]". Hingegen scheinen ihm die Fragen des Adressaten hinsichtlich des Wasserstoffspektrums so bedeutend zu sein, daß er sie in das Programm zukünftiger Versammlungen aufnehme: "Quant aux questions relatives au spectre de l'hydrogene dont vous me parlez, elles me paraissent tres importantes et je les inscris au programme de nos futurs reunions [ ]."

        A Streetcar Named Desire

      New York: New Directions, 1947 First edition, ninth printing. Inscribed by Williams on the front free endpaper: "To Virginia Carr / from / Tennessee Williams". Publisher's red cloth, lettered in black; in red pictorial dust jacket designed by Alvin Lustig, with an illustration of a male stick figure dancing with two female stick figures, lettered in black and white. A bright copy, with minor wear to the spine ends, a hint of faint soiling to the fore edge, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with some wear and rubbing to the extremities, rubbing to the hinges, some toning to the spine, a few light spots of minor soiling to the otherwise bright and fresh panels. A tight and attractive copy, inscribed with a warm association. Copies of this title are seldom inscribed by the author. This copy is inscribed to Virginia Spencer Carr, a professor of English at Georgia State University and biographer of American expatriate writers, including Paul Bowles and Carson McCullers. Carr's most notable work is her award-winning The Lonely Hunter: A Biography of Carson McCullers (1975), the standard McCullers biographical text. Tennessee Williams, a fellow Southern Gothic author and close friend of McCullers, wrote the introduction to this volume, adding both to its credibility and popularity. A Streetcar Named Desire is the Pulitzer Prize winning play about the mental breakdown of the charming, yet troubled Southern belle Blanche DuBois, who runs away from her past by traveling to visit her sister Stella on a streetcar named "Desire." Despite its shockingly gritty language and somewhat controversial subject matter, A Streetcar Named Desire was a critical and commercial success. The play was first produced on Broadway on December 3, 1947, at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. It was directed by Elia Kazan and starred Marlon Brando, Kim Hunter, Jessica Tandy, and Karl Malden. In 1951, A Streetcar Named Desire was adapted into a film, also directed by Kazan and starring Brando, Hunter, and Malden along with Vivien Leigh.. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

Signed "Ernesto Hemingway."

      - To George [Brown], Hemingway's longtime friend, boxing coach, sparring partner, and trainer who was also a tennis partner and friend to Hemingway's wife, Martha, Hemingway writes relaying family news along with news of mutual friends and telling a story of a boxing match gone awry with John Kelly. Hemingway, an avid fan of boxing who prided himself on his skill at it, tells a humorous story about a boxing match gone awry. Hemingway refers to his children Jack (Bumby), Patrick (Mousie) and Gregory (Gigi), his wife Marty (Martha Gellhorn), and friends including Winston (Winston Guest, husband of C.Z. Guest; Hemingway was best man at the wedding of Winston and C.Z. Guest which took place at Finca Vigia in 1947). The story of John Kelly is about John "Shipwreck" Kelly, the All-American halfback football player who later played for the New York Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers. Kelly was a friend of Hemingway's who went on an African safari with him and apparently visited him in Cuba. The letter begins with family news. "Mary is almost finished on a novel she is writing. Bumby went into the army. Mousie did good at school. Gigi same. Mousie never got to like that. school. decided by himself last year that he didn't believe in God." He then talks about mutual friends. "Don Andrews is fine and sends his best. Jai-alai players are fine and two of them Paxchy and Fernando are with me now on this trip. Also Winston sends his best too." Hemingway then describes the fishing trip he is on, "an island in the ocean where the trade wind blows day and night. iguanas six feet long. flamingoes. by the thousands. the ocean is full of the biggest kind of fish." The then tells the story of putting on his boxing gloves. "Speaking of the sour science old John (4F) Kelly got himself down to a natty 205 and brought his lovely bride out the Finca. I hadn't had a glove on for six eight months. I was so pitiful." He describes the bout at length and the refers to a plan that Kelly will come again the next day at 11 and Hemingway came up with strategies to beat him, fair or unfair. He tells how he drinks as he waits for Kelly to arrive but he never arrives. He recounts that he put "a little scotch in my tea" and considers that he might "try to fall on him and break his bad leg." His story, he hopes, gets a laugh out of his friend. "I hope you get a laugh. I had one and so did Winston. Mary's only reaction was 'What did you let. Kelly cut your mouth for in the first place?' She was right." He sends his love to Georgette, referring to George Brown's lover and longtime companion, Georgette Cohan, the daughter of George M. Cohan. And he ends by asking what his correspondent thinks of the film version of "For Whom the Bell Tolls" which came out in 1943, the year of this letter. Hemingway signs twice, "Ernesto, " and in full, "Ernest Hemingway." The boxing story Hemingway relates adds importance to the letter, Good reference to his book, "For Whom The Bell Tolls" published in 1940.

        The New Testament in the Westminster Version of the Sacred Scriptures, Signed By J.R.R. Tolkien

      Covent Garden & Glasgow: Sands & Co Ltd, 1947. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6?" - 7?" tall. The New Testament in the Westminster Version of the Sacred Scriptures, published by Sands & Company Ltd in 1947. This copy of the New Testament was previously owned by J.R.R. Tolkien. In the text block are numerous notes and bibliographical amendments by the noted author. In some cases Professor Tolkien even corrects errors in the Bible&#39;s footnotes (who else would do this, other than J.R.R. Tolkien!). There are numerous instances of burned spots from tobacco ash falling on the pages. The front free endpaper has a wonderful example of his signature, characterized by the three dots and underlying &#39;swoosh&#39; he has become famous for. The handwritten script in the notes can be compared favorably to known handwritten Lord of the Rings script pages archived at Marquette University, and reprinted in pages of the History of Middle Earth. A letter of provenance is included from a member of the family that previously owned this Bible, stating, "This New Testament was handed down to me from my parents who had known the Tolkiens (in Bournemouth) since the sixties. They had often talked fondly about the time spent with them and used to say how they were very happy people who enjoyed the simple things in life like hearty conversation amongst friends. All the amendments within its pages are totally genuine as well as the tobacco as both my parents never smoked." A very significant and personal item, originally published a few years after The Hobbit, and a few years before The Lord of the Rings. Much has been written about Tolkien&#39;s personal faith which was so subtly and skillfully infused into the moral fabric of Middle Earth, and which he drew upon to convince fellow author C.S. Lewis that the Gospels truly represented "the greatest story ever told". The notes and emendations in this New Testament display a knowledge and fluency with scripture which is on par with his stunning literary and linguist skills. A marvelous and unique Christian association copy for the discriminating Tolkien Collector. A custom leather clamshell case is being prepared to house and protect this highly sought after J.R.R. Tolkien Signed New Testament. Digital photo&#39;s available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Very Good / No Jacket.
