        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      New York, 26. VI. 1947. - An den steirischen Schriftsteller und Journalisten Rudolf List (1901-1979). - „[.] Ein Aufsatz über meine Arbeiten in Ihrer Austria wäre von großem Wert für mich. Nur weiß ich nicht, wie das praktisch zu machen wäre. Viele - und gerade meine besten Sachen, die ich noch in Wien geschrieben habe, sind aus wohlbekannten Gründen unbekannt geblieben [.]. Den Mahler Aufsatz werde ich mit größter Freude schreiben, nur bitte ich um Geduld. Erst muss ich die neue Partitur vom Hals schaffen, dann meine Erinnerungen wecken [.]. Die zwei Briefe von seiner Hand gehören zu meinen kostbarsten Schätzen, sind aber inhaltlich bedeutungslos [.]. 1903 wurde Weigl Mitglied in der ‚Vereinigung schaffender Tonkünstler‘, die er gemeinsam mit Zemlinsky und Schönberg gründete und deren Ehrenpräsident Gustav Mahler war [.]". - Weigl „studierte in Wien Klavier und Komposition, unter anderem bei Alexander von Zemlinsky, und wirkte nach seiner Promotion in Wien als Lehrer am Konservatorium und an der Universität. Der jüdische Komponist wanderte 1938 in die USA aus und erwarb 1943 dort die Staatsbürgerschaft. Er war ein hochgeschätzter Musikpädagoge und besonders bei Musikern respektierter Komponist. Er schuf sechs Sinfonien, weitere Werke für Orchester, Instrumentalkonzerte, Vokal- und Kammermusik. ‚Ich habe Dr. Weigl immer als einen der besten Komponisten dieser alten Generation betrachtet; einer derer, die die glanzvolle Wiener Tradition weiterführen. Er bewahrt zweifellos die alte Haltung jenes musikalischen Geistes, welcher einen der besten Teile der Wiener Kultur darstellt.‘ Diese Worte schrieb Arnold Schönberg im Juni 1938 in einem Empfehlungsschreiben über Karl Weigl, der sich anschickte, seine unsicher gewordene Heimat zu verlassen. Karl Weigl, der vor allem in den Zwischenkriegsjahren als Komponist und Lehrer einen bedeutenden Anteil am Wiener Musikleben innehatte, muss wohl zur großen Gruppe der ‚Entwurzelten‘ gezählt werden, die, durch die Machtergreifung der Nationalsozialisten zur Emigration gezwungen, in ihrer neuen Heimat nie mehr an die Erfolge ihrer Vergangenheit anknüpfen konnten" (Wikipedia). - Knickspuren. - Beiliegend eine kleine Broschüre (8 S. inkl. Umschlag) über den Komponisten mit einem Portrait u. Daten zu Leben und Werk. - ge Gewicht in Gramm: 350 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Mohandas K. Gandhi Signed Photograph.

      Photograph signed on the lower center, "Sincerely MKGandhi," It is a bust portrait showing him looking downward. The photograph measures 4.75 inches by 3.5 inches. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 12 inches by 13 inches. Photographs signed by Gandhi are rare. Mohandas K. Gandhi was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. He is unofficially called the Father of the Nation. Gandhi's vision of an independent India based on religious pluralism, however, was challenged in the early 1940s by a new Muslim nationalism which was demanding a separate Muslim homeland carved out of India. Eventually, in August 1947, Britain granted independence, but the British Indian Empire was partitioned into two dominions, a Hindu-majority India and Muslim-majority Pakistan. As many displaced Hindus, Muslims, and Sikhs made their way to their new lands, religious violence broke out, especially in the Punjab and Bengal. Eschewing the official celebration of independence in Delhi, Gandhi visited the affected areas, attempting to provide solace. In the months following, he undertook several fasts unto death to stop religious violence. The last of these, undertaken on January 1948 when he was 78, also had the indirect goal of pressuring India to pay out some cash assets owed to Pakistan. Some Indians thought Gandhi was too accommodating. Among them was Nathuram Godse, a Hindu nationalist, who assassinated Gandhi on January 30, 1948. Gandhi's birthday, October 2, is commemorated in India as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday, and worldwide as the International Day of Nonviolence.

        We climbed the impossible peak. [Extract from The Saturday Evening Post, June 28, 1947.]

      - First-hand account of the first ascent of Yosemite's Lost Arrow. This magazine article is cropped and laid into an hand-made octavo volume of 23 leaves, including 5 illustrations (1 folding), bound in blue cloth with neat, hand-lettered front cover and spine, the binding almost certainly done by Lawrence W. Swan (see below), with Swann's ownership signature on recto of the front free endpaper, Stanford University, August 1947, and on the verso the signatures of three of the four climbers: the author of the article, Fritz Lippmann, Jack Arnold, and Anton "Ax" Nelson. This is "the dramatic, breathtaking story of how Lost Arrow, the one long, thin shaft of rock rising like a giant needle in Yosemite Valley, finally was conquered by man." Lawrence Swan (1922-99), from whose library this hand-made book emanates, was a biologist, naturalist, professor, and a pioneering public television instructor. He was born in Darjeeling, in northern India. and was inspired by the region's stunning mountain terrain. He began a natural history career that was to bring him world-wide recognition as a leading authority on high-altitude ecology, particularly in the Himalayan mountain range" (from his obituary in the San Francisco Chronicle, May 15, 1999). He was a member of the first American Himalayan Expedition in 1954 on which he collected numerous specimens, and discovered two hitherto unknown species, a frog (Rana swani), and a glacier flea (Michilanus swani), both of which had adapted to surviving in one of the world's most inhospitable environments, and which were named in his honor. In 1960 he returned to the Himalayas with Sir Edmund Hillary's scientific expedition to the Mt. Everest area to conduct high altitude research. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [Offprint of] "Recent and Prospective Developments in Large Digital Calculating Machines"

      Overview Details & Condition Scarce early computing offprint describing ENIAC and the IBM/Harvard Mark I. Only the third of Hartree's computer publications, this offprint appeared shortly before the more well-known Cambridge University Press pamphlet Calculating Machines: Recent & Prospective Developments. The only two pieces published prior to this were an article in the journal Nature and a shorter article in the Journal of Scientific Instruments (published July 1947, the same month as the present). In addition to his contributions to ballistics and quantum theory, British mathematician Douglas Hartree (1897-1958) was also a leader in efforts to automate scientific calculations. He was "involved in the development of the digital electronic computer, which emerged from wartime attempts to automate calculation further... In 1946 Hartree's advice was sought in the application of the United States army's ENIAC (electronic numerical integrator and computer) to the production of ballistic tables" (ODNB). The present paper begins with a short history of mechanical and electrical calculating, describes the functioning of the Mark I and ENIAC, and notes some prospective developments, including the construction of the EDVAC and ACE computers and the principle of the acoustic line delay. The original owner of this offprint was the prominent Swedish chemist Gunnar Hägg. [London:] Royal Naval Scientific Service Journal, July 1947. 10-page stapled offprint. Ownership ink stamp of Gunnar Hägg and date ink stamp "Dec 1947" to first leaf. Upper staple lacking, a little minor creasing and toning. An excellent copy.

        A Streetcar Named Desire

Publisher's pictorial red cloth designed by Alvin Lustig, with an illustration of a male stick figure dancing with two female stick figures, lettered in black and white; in the original red pictorial dust jacket, illustrated and lettered after the binding. Very good, with a few minor chips to the spine tail, some light wear to the extremities, very light stain to the endpapers, former owner's inscription to the front pastedown, otherwise very clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some chipping to spine head and a small ½" chip to tail, toning to the spine, rubbing to the hinges, some splitting to the hinges at the spine head, light soiling to the otherwise bright panels. Overall, a very sturdy copy, signed by Williams. 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.. Illus. by Lustig, Alvin. Signed by Author. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

        Fact Sheet on the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

      Political Education Dept./Progressive Citizens of America, [1947]., New York: - Typed document, legal size sheets (14" x 8 1/4"), title contents sheet, plus 24 stapled (but not all connected) leaves. Half the sheets somewhat darkened and brittle, first sheet missing part of top margin, but not affecting text, some edge wear and corner chipping, a few archival corner reinforcements; still in very good condition, considering the quality of the paper. This is a very interesting document that provides information on the early activities of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) by a group called the Progressive Citizens of America. The document seems to have emerged as a result on the "attack on Hollywood," including movie producers, directors and actors. Many of these people would be blacklisted over the next few years. The Progressive Citizens Group argues that many feel that the activities of HUAC are themselves Un-American, and show little regard for the Bill of Rights. The document describes members of the committee, their voting record on some issues, and other activities connected to the HUAC. Richard M. Nixon is one of the key members, and to illustrate some of the members hypocrisy, it shows that Congressman John Rankin didn't feel the Ku Klux Klan deserved any special scrutiny, since it was an American institution. Interestingly, the document lists some friendly witnesses that seem to have given up some names to the committee, including Walt Disney, Robert Taylor, Adolph Menjou, and Louis B. Mayer. A list of 19 names of "unfriendly witnesses" who decided to defend their constitutional rights were also listed. No copy of this document is located by the OCLC.

        Typed Letter Signed

      1947 - ("C.S. Lewis" with a couple of handwritten corrections) in black ink, Magdalen College, Oxford, October 27, 1947. 8" x 3 1/2"; 1 page (recto only). Fine (staple holes in the upper left corner). To Mr. Anderson: "Thanks for your letter. Bleiben*, oddly enough, was our Vicar in the Oxford suburb where I live when not in College; his death was quite unexpected, and he will be much missed. I think I explained when we met why nothing can make it possible for me to go abroad at the present; I am chained to a bedside by obvious and unanswerable duty. It will be distressing if people think I'm standing out for higher fees! Thanks very much for the cutting. . ." During World War I, Lewis had lost his best friend and had promised to take care of his friend's mother in case he died at war. Lewis eventually took his friend's mother in. This made it difficult to make appearances, giving the outward impression that he was holding out for higher appearance fees. *The Rev. Thomas Eric Bleiben (1903-1947), Vicar of Holy Trinity, Headington Quarry. Lewis found him too much of a liberal (see footnote 108, page 272 in Collected Letters). This letter is not in The Collected Letters. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
