Some chose to reprise their work in cinematic form - Ernst recreates a sequence from his collage novel La Semaine de Bonte - and Richter uses music by composers ranging from Darius Milhaud and John Cage to Duke Ellington [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        PRIVATELY PUBLISHED POETRY ABOUT THE INTERNMENT DURING WWII: Vojna vihra. Kitice iz internacije. Niti za slavo niti za denar. [Maelstrom of War. Rimes from Internment. Not for glory, nor for money ]

      Nova Stifta, Slovenia: [by the author] . 1947 - 12°, [1] blank page, [1] mimeographed title page, signed by the author, 45 mimeographed text printed recto, original card cover with title printed in blue, blue linen spine (Very Good, slightly age-toned, first pages slightly water-stained, small tears in endpapers, cover and spine slightly scuffed on edges). A seemingly unrecorded booklet with Slovenian poetry, talks about WWII and internment in the work camp at Padua. This mimeographed booklet was published privately by the author Fran Fajdiga from Nova _tifta in Slovenia. The author talks in rimes about his difficult daily life in the work camp in Padua, and in other poems he talks about war situations between the Partisans, Germans and collaborators. The book seems to be unrecorded and was probably published in a very small quantity by the author. Fajdiga apperas in the records as a publisher of local postcards. As mentioned in his poetry he was about 60 years old in 1947 and was an amateur poet.

        Signed Yearbook

      - The Retrospect yearbook, dating from Armstrong's senior year at Blume High School in Wapakoneta, Ohio in 1947, hardcover, 8 x 11, 88 pages. Armstrong's senior portrait is at the top of page 12, and signed in ink under his activities, "Neil Armstrong." Among the activities he participated in during his three years at school are "Band (2,3,4) Vice-President 4," and "Student Council 3,4." Armstrong is pictured an addition six times in the yearbook, two in the band (one with the other officers), two for Student Council (one with the other officers), and two with the Senior Hi-Y, whose information reads, in part: "Clean Living-self-discipline in everyday life, Clean Speech-decency in conversation, Clean Scholarship-honesty in school, Clean Sportmanship-fairness in athletics." In fine condition, with inside pages detached from covers, loose front hinge, expected handling wear, and light wear and soiling to covers. Twenty-two years before his name would be etched into the history books, young Mr. Armstrong was associated with less-stellar--but no less noteworthy--pursuits such as band and student council. At age 16, he graduated 11th in his class of 78 students. His dedication to such creeds as those endorse by the Senior Hi-Y, including "clean living," "self-discipline," and "decency," would go on to serve him well in life--especially in the Apollo 11 moon landing and the demands of a post-NASA life as a living legend. Extremely uncommon in such early material!

        A HANDSOME BLACK & WHITE PORTRAIT OF THE GREAT ROMANIAN COMPOSER & CONDUCTOR GEORGE ENESCU, BATON IN HAND, INTENSELY LOOKING UP FROM A SCORE

      (New York, February), (1947). (1947). - (New York, February), (1947). (1947). Fine. - sc - A powerful 14 inch high by 11 inch wide photograph by Emmerich Gara depicting the great Romanian composer and conductor from the chest up standing at the podium in three-quarter profile. Attired in a dark suit and tie over a striped shirt, the disheveled conductor looks up from a score into the dark distance. His furrowed brow belies the softer look of his features as he gently holds a baton between his two hands. Photographed by Cellist Emmerich Gara, with his name & address stamped on the verso of the photograph. Signed by Gara in pencil on the verso. Fine. The Romanian composer, violinist, and conductor and teacher George Enescu (1881-1955) was born in the village of Liveni. Known as Georges Enesco in France, Enescu was a child prodigy who created his first composition at the age of five. His works, influenced by Romanian folk music, include the two Romanian Rhapsodies, his opera "Oedipe", five symphonies, a symphonic poem "Vox Maris", and much more including chamber music. He made his American debut as a conductor at Carnegie Hall in 1923 and made several recordings as a violinist. He was considered as a possible successor to Toscanini. The town of Liveni, where he was born, was later renamed "George Enescu" in his honor.Emmerich Gara (b.1901, d.1963). Born in Vienna, Austria in 1901, Gara established lifelong careers as a portrait photographer and professional cellist. Before the outbreak of the Second World War he and his wife emigrated to the United States, where he was hired as cellist for the NBC Orchestra led by Arturo Toscanini. He performed with the orchestra (later called The Symphony of the Air) until his death.From his seat in the front row of the orchestra Gara was in the unique position to photograph all the great conductors and soloists who appeared with the orchestra during this extraordinary period of musical activity. His subjects were captured in performance, rehearsal, and in candid moments during recordings and while socializing.Gara's action portraits were used for record covers, for the Book of the Month Club and in articles in Time, Life and other major magazines around the world.

        Scott-King's Modern Europe

      First edition; 8vo; original cloth and John Piper designed dust jacket. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "from Evelyn Waugh March 1947." Bookplate of historian Hugh Trevor-Roper to the front pastedown. It is interesting that this copy belonged to Trevor-Roper as Waugh disliked him intensely, referring to him variously as "that blackguard" and "the demon don". In a letter of 1950 Waugh described his writing as 'vulgar'. Their most famous public spat was in the pages of the New Statesman in 1954 over relatively obscure points concerning the history of the Roman Catholic church in England. Waugh thought the appointment of Trevor- Roper as Regius Professor at Oxford as an insult to English Catholics. Waugh does not name the recipient of the inscription (he normally did), and it is interesting to speculate as to whether Waugh presented a copy of this work to a figure for whom he held a strong dislike. A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with minor creasing to foot, lower panel and flaps a little spotted. A superb copy of this title with an interesting association.

He became renowned as the quintessential 'Tel Aviv Photographer', and was famous for capturing the historic housing lottery in Ahuzat Bayit (the genesis of the city). His photographs accompany the construction and development of the first Hebrew city, and are a key source of information on Tel Aviv's first days, its streets, and its residents, as well as important events in its history. Photos courtesy of Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv Avraham Soskin (1881-1963) was the quintessential "Tel Aviv photographer" in the first decades following the city's establishment. His photograph of the historic lottery of housing parcels that took place on April 11, 1909, on the Jaffa sand dunes is the most frequently reproduced and widely disseminated image of early Tel Aviv. Soon thereafter, the streets of the Ahuzat Bayit suburb were laid out and the first buildings erected. From 1914 to 1933 Soskin maintained his studio at 24 Herzl Street, down the block from the new town's principal landmark, the Herzliah Gymnasium. After he closed his studio he supported himself through a typesetting (zincography) business. The leaders of the Zionist movement, both in Palestine and abroad, were well aware of the power of photography as a medium for publicity and propaganda. Dozens of Soskin's photographs were reproduced on postcards during the early years, and in 1926 some achieved canonic status when they were published in a small album aptly entitled Tel Aviv. Soskin is the most prominent photographer represented in the Eliasaf Robinson Collection, which has rich holdings of historically significant postcards, commercial photographs, and snapshots produced by other photographers.

        Dreams That Money Can Buy

      NY: Films International, 1947. Paperback. Very good. Green wraps slightly darkened at the edges, otherwise a nice copy of this promotional booklet for Richter's film with a cover design by Max Ernst from his book La Semaine de bonte. One of the most influential members of the cinematic avant garde, Richter In this film made the bold attempt to introduce this work to a wider audience Using the framing story of a man who discovers how to craft and sell dreams to a series of anxious clients, Richter allotted each dream (seven in all) to artists who included Max Ernst, Fernand Leger, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp and Alexander Calder. Some chose to reprise their work in cinematic form - Ernst recreates a sequence from his collage novel La Semaine de Bonte - and Richter uses music by composers ranging from Darius Milhaud and John Cage to Duke Ellington
