        Handbook of the territories which form the theatre of operations of the Iraq Petroleum Company Limited and its associated companies.

      London, Iraq Petroleum Company, 1948. - 8vo. VIII, 152 pp. With a frontispiece (portrait of King Faisal I of Iraq), 27 plates, and 1 folding map. Publisher's original cloth. First edition, second issue (reprinted February, 1949) of this overview of the Middle Eastern regions emerging as the great oil exporting countries of the century: Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, the then Trucial Coast (now the UAE) and Qatar, including the "Hinterland Tribes", Oman, and Kuwait, as well as Iraq and the Levant. Providing details of the companies, the local geography, climate, culture, and political history, this forms an invaluable compendium on the region and ruling personalities as they presented themselves in the immediate postwar years: "The Trucial Rulers acknowledge the paramount position of H.M.G., represented by the Political Resident, but no restrictions are placed upon their independence provided that they adhere to the various Conventions which they have signed [.] Each of the Rulers [.] is thus in direct treaty relations with the British Government [.] A representative of the Political Resident is now stationed at Sharjah. Up to the middle of the nineteenth century the Jawasim power, with its headquarters at Sharjah and Ras al Khaimah, was paramount along the coast, with the Sharjah Shaijh as the principal ruler. This is no longer the case; the seven States recognised by H.M.G. as independent are now equal in status. The Peninsula of Qatar is historically distinct from the Trucial Coast but its Shaikh, early in the present century, entered into agreements with H.M.G. similar to theose of the Trucial rulers [.]. The Shaikhdom of Qatar covers the Peninsula of that name [.] Dohah is the Shaikh's capital and the only considerable village. The north-western end of the peninsula is claimed by the Al Khalifah as the homeland of the present Bahrain dynasty, and bad relations arising from this have frequently brought the two Shaikhs to the verge of war. Otherwise, the Qatar people have few outside contacts. The present ruler, Shaikh 'Abdullah bin Jasim al Thani, is very old and was much influenced by his son and heir Hamad, who died in 1948 [.] The Shaikhdom of Abu Dhabi is in size of territory by far the largest of the Trucial Coast [.] The ruler, Shaikh Shakhbut bin Sultan of the Al Bu Falah, is a quiet, nervous personality. He has three brothers, Hazza', Khalid and Za'id, of whom the last named is probably the outstanding and most influential person in the whole of Trucial Oman [.] The village of Abu Dhabi is situated on a barren island off the coast and is not visited by steamers [.] The bulk of the inhabitants of Dubai territory belong to the tribe of Al Bu Falasah, a branch of the Bani Yas. The Shaikh's authority of largely confined to the coast. Dubai creek has been used as a landing-place for flying boats [.]". Profusely illustrated, including "Early Days in Qatar", aerial photographs of Qatar as well as of Manamah in Bahrain, "Pearl Divers Opening Their Shells", etc. - The Iraq Petroleum Company (IPC) had virtual monopoly on all oil exploration and production in Iraq from 1925 to 1961. It was involved in other parts of the Middle East, and played a major role in the discovery and development of oil resources in the region. IPC operations were taken over by the Iraq National Oil Company after they were nationalised by the Ba'athist government in June 1972. - A good copy. OCLC 5464854. Not in Macro.

        Crusade in Europe.

      Doubleday & Company, Garden City, NY 1948 - Signed limited first edition. Thick octavo, original cloth, cartographic endpapers, top edge gilt, original acetate. Signed by Dwight D. Eisenhower, number 299 of 14556 copies. Fine in the original acetate, which is in fine condition. Original slipcase in near fine condition with light rubbing. A very sharp example. Five-star General Dwight D. Eisenhower was arguably the single most important military figure of World War II. For many historians, his memoirs of this eventful period of U.S. history have become the single most important record of the war. Crusade in Europe tells the complete story of the war as Eisenhower planned and lived it. Through his eyes, the enormous scope and drama of the war-strategy, battles, moments of fateful decision-become fully illuminated in all their fateful glory. "Eisenhower gives the reader true insight into the most difficult part of a commander's life" (New York Times). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Au-delà de l'Oural.

      Editions du Scribe 1948 - Préface par Ivan Bounine, Prix Nobel, traduction Jarl Priel, illustrations Geneviève Marchal, 1 vol. in-8 br., Editions du Scribe, Paris, 1948, 313 pp. Bon état (couv. un peu frottée) pour ce très rare ouvrage, absolument passionnant. Né à Orel en 1884, le brillant ingénieur des chemins de fer Alexandre Kliaguine fait fortune en découvrant une ville engloutie dans les steppes d'Astrakan. Il construit le chemin de fer de l'Amour puis est envoyé par le gouvernement russe en Belgique, en France et en Angleterre pour l'achat de matériel. De retour à Arkangel en 1914, il construit en un temps record le chemin de fer de Mourmansk. Il fuit définitivement la Russie en 1919. Il lance ses propres affaires en France à partir de 1921 et refait fortune (chantiers de démolition de navire, grands hôtels à Paris - Hôtel Napoléon - et sur la Côte d'Azur, parfumerie, etc.) ; il meurt en 1952. Très habile technicien et grand travailleur, il aidera de nombreux émigrés russes. L'écrivain russe Ivan Bounine le considère comme "un des plus doués parmi les russes". Le présent ouvrage relate la vie aventureuse de l'auteur à travers la Russie. Langue: Français [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Die sprechenden Maschinen Studer-Revox - Das Lebenswerk des Audiopioniers Willi Studer von Peter Holenstein Das Buch enth?lt die gr?ndlich recherchierte, dokumentierte und bebilderte Geschichte der Marken "Studer" und "Revox", Begriffe, die weltweit zu Synomen f?r perfektionierte Audiotechnik wurden, und es schildert den Werdegang von Willi Studer und seiner Firma. Auf einer zweiten "Tonspur" fa?t der Autor die Geschichte der Tonaufnahme von den Vision?ren bis in die Gegenwart zusammen, die vor mehr als hundert Jahren begann. Wir haben die Tonbandmaschine so perfektioniert, dass die musikalischen Grenzen weniger bei der Technik, sondern mehr beim menschlichen Ohr liegen.? Dieser Werbespruch trifft - wie ich finde - den Charakter der legend?ren Audioprodukte pr?zis, mit denen die Schweizer Firma Studer-Revox unter ihrem Gr?nder Willi Studer die Welt eroberte - zumindest die Welt der Ton- und Radiostudios und die der Sprachlabors. Zu ihren bekanntesten Produkten geh?rt dabei fraglos der nimbusreiche Revox-Plattenspieler, der dank seiner un?bertroffenen Qualit?t heute noch in allen grossen Radio- und vielen Tonstudios im Einsatz ist. Zu erfahren ist dies und noch viel mehr ?brigens in dieser kurzweiligen, faktenreichen, reich bebilderten Monografie. Denn sie gibt nicht nur Einblick in Studers Leben, sondern erz?hlt auch, wie sich seine Firma vom Kleinbetrieb zum Weltkonzern entwickelte und dabei den Rundfunkbereich wie das private Musikh?ren revolutionierte. Zudem stellt sie im zweiten Teil jedes Modell in Wort und Bild vor, das Studer-Revox jemals produzierte. KurzDas grandiose Buch ist schlicht ein Must f?r Studer-Revox-Fans! Spannend wie ein Krimi und bis ins letzte recherchiert beschreibt Peter Holenstein die Geschichte der Rundfunktechnik und speziell die des Audio-Pioniers Willi Studer,dessen Produkte bis zur "digitalen Revolution" Kultstatus hatten. Fast jede Seite l??t das Herz eines Revox-Fans h?her schlagen.Ein "AHa"- Erlebnis folgt dem anderen. Man bl?ttert in diesem Buch wie in einem pers?nlichen Poesiealbum der Technik.Ein tolles Werk von Peter Holenstein,der nach eigenen Angaben vier Jahre Arbeit in dieses Buch investiert hat. Das Buch beschreibt den Werdegang und die Lebensgeschichte von Willi Studer sehr ausf?hrlich und detailliert. Sein unendliches Streben nach Qualit?t und Spitzenleistungen wurden belohnt durch stetiges Wachstum und die weltweite Verbreitung der beiden Markennamen Studer und Revox. Der technische Teil des Buches f?hrt den Leser durch ein virtuelles Museum mit s?mtlichen Tonbandger?ten und Studiomaschinen, welche von 1948 bis 1990 hergestellt wurden. Dieses Buch ist ein Muss f?r Studiofreaks und Analogliebhaber.

        The Second World War.

      London: Cassell & Co. Ltd.,, 1948?54. [The Gathering Storm; Their Finest Hour; The Grand Alliance; The Hinge of Fate; Closing the Ring; Triumph and Tragedy.] 6 volumes, octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark blue morocco, titles gilt to spines, raised bands, single ruled gilt panel to compartments with rampant lion device gilt to the first, fifth and sixth, single rule to boards, autograph block to front boards, twin rule to turn-ins, burgundy endpapers, gilt edges. With diagrams and tables throughout the text. A fine set. First editions, first impressions of the single most important historical account of the Second World War. Signed and dated 1951 by Winston S. Churchill to the half-title of volume IV. Max Beloff observed that there was no statesman of the twentieth century "whose retrospective accounts of the great events in which he has taken part have so dominated subsequent historical thinking." A man who had always primarily made his living by his pen, Churchill was the only major war leader to give an authoritative account of the conflict, and his ringing phrases seeped into the collective memory. As J. H. Plumb noted in his essay in A. J. P. Taylor's Churchill: Four Faces and the Man "Churchill the historian lies at the very heart of all historiography of the Second World War, and will always remain there? [we still] move down the broad avenues which he drove through war's confusion and complexity."

        The Second World War: The Gathering Storm; Their Finest Hour; The Grand Alliance; The Hinge of Fate; Closing the Ring; Triumph and Tragedy

      London: Cassell & Co., 1948-54. First editions of Winston Churchill's masterpiece. Octavo, six volumes. Bound in three-quarters red morocco, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, top edge gilt. In fine condition. A very nice set. "Winston Churchill himself affirmed that ?this is not history: this is my case" (Holmes, 285). Churchill was re-elected to the post of Prime Minister in 1951. "The Second World War is a great work of literature, combining narrative, historical imagination and moral precept in a form that bears comparison with that of the original master chronicler, Thucydides. It was wholly appropriate that in 1953 Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature" (Keegan). Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 best non-fiction books of the twentieth century.

        YOSEMITE AND THE SIERRA NEVADA

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1948. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). First Edition. Photographs by Ansel Adams. Selections from the Works of John Muir. Edited by Charlotte E. Mauk. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1948. First edition. "This book is a synthesis. A half-century apart, two artists, inspired by the same great manifestation of nature's beauty, have sought to express it each in his own medium. The unhurried process of nature left the essence of Yosemite unchanged between the time when John Muir knew, studied, and expressed its beauty, and the day when Ansel Adams recorded and interpreted it with his camera." Inscribed by Adams to fellow photographer Ray McSavaney (1938-2014) on the front flyleaf. After attending one of Adams' Yosemite workshop in 1972, McSavaney went on to become one of his mentor's most accomplished protege's, amassing an archive of some 50,000 4" x 5" negatives and establishing himself as one of the West Coast's most elegant and quiet voices. Tall octavo. Original tan cloth binding, with brown titles. The spine and extremities are darkened a touch, with some wear to the corners and tips. In a supplied dust jacket, which is clean and bright with a few spots of offsetting to the flaps and just a hint of edgewear; otherwise very good..
