        RAR Eames Plastic Armchair. Schaukelstuhl.

      - Das Designerpaar Charles & Ray Eames gehört zu den bedeutendsten Designer-Persönlichkeiten des 20. Jahrhunderts, ihre zeitlosen Entwürfe zählen zu den Inkunabeln einer zeitlosen, am Bauhaus orientierten Avantgarde. Ihre bahnbrechenden Beiträge zu Architektur, Möbel- und Industriedesign, sowie ihre Haltung zur und Nutzung von Fotografie machten sie unsterblich, ihre Möbel werden bis heute (hierzulande bei Vitra International in Weil am Rhein) gebaut und sind in den wichtigen Museen der Welt ausgestellt. In der Produktentwicklung waren sie die Vorreiter: 1948 glückte ihnen der erste Stuhl aus Kunststoff, der überhaupt in Serienproduktion ging. Ihr eigenes Wohnhaus, das »Case Study House No. 8« in Kalifornien, setzte seinerzeit Maßstäbe: Das Innovative im Entwurf der Architektur, im Design des Interieurs und in der ungewöhnlichen Kombination der verwendeten Materialien und ihre Behandlung in den Details machen das Eames-Haus zu eine Mekka für Architekten und Designer der ganzen Welt. Es wird als eines der bedeutendsten Bauwerke der Nachkriegszeit weltweit anerkannt. Die für das Haus gebauten Möbel werden bis heute produziert, die »Vintage-« Originalmöbel erzielen auf dem Sammlermarkt exorbitante Preise und bilden eine sichere Wertanlage. Mit einer kleinen aber feinen Auswahl an Eames-Produkten möchten wir das Designerpaar würdigen und Ihnen einen unvergänglichen Wert ans Herz legen, sei es für Zuhause oder für die Praxis. Der legendäre »fiberglass chair« war der erste industriell gefertigte Stuhl aus Kunststoff. 1948 präsentierten Charles und Ray Eames den Entwurf des Stuhls auf dem Wettbewerb »International Competition for Low Cost Furniture«, der vom Museum of Modern Art in New York ausgeschrieben wurde. Die organisch geformte Sitzschale aus glasfaserverstärktem Kunststoff wurde später mit unterschiedlichen Untergestellen, wie beispielsweise den hier angebotenen Schaukelkufen des RAR, kombiniert und millionenfach produziert. In ihrer aktuellen Version aus Polypropylen bieten die Armchairs einen nochmals verbesserten Sitzkomfort, er sollte allerdings nicht länger als nötig in der Sonne ausgesetzt sein, dann könnte er verfärben. Mit seinen Kufen und seinem klassisch-zeitlosen Design wertet er das Kinder- oder Wohnzimmer ebenso auf wie die Praxis. 67 hoch x 62,5 breit, 52 cm tief, Sitzhöhe 33 cm, Schaukelstuhluntergestell verchromt mit Ahornkufen gebeizt (RAR), Sitzschale durchgefärbt aus Polypropylen, Farbe weiß.

        La difficulté d'être

      First edition, review copy.Precious autograph signed by Jean Cocteau to Jean-Paul Sartre: "... his friend wholeheartedly ..."Without being of the same generation and despite everything that could oppose them, Jean Cocteau and Jean-Paul Sartre frequented regularly in the late 1940s and early 1950s; the death of the philosopher Jean Marais will remember regular phone calls but also endless dinners and wonderful discussion.Postwar, Cocteau seemed indeed to have heart to forget some of his compromises Occupancy and friends to positions as committed as Sartre could appropriately contribute. Cocteau was also a curious who could not fail to be interested in the rise of a complex personality.Thus the two men worked along with the recognition of Jean Genet and they published in July 1948 in Combat an open letter to President of the Republic, Vincent Auriol, for the release from prison of the poet-hooligan . A few years later, Sartre Cocteau help to create a Support Committee Henri Martin, Communist opponent in the war in Indochina sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for distributing leaflets. Cocteau also participate in the staging of Dirty Hands, Sartre's play premiered in 1948 at the Théâtre Antoine.By offering the pope of existentialism an autographed copy of the difficulty of being the indefatigable dandy subjected him one of his most intimate works. In the book, he recalls Sartre, noting also with political commitment, it "lifted a large hare."Rare example of the links between the two major figures of literary and intellectual scene of the twentieth century.

        Selected Fables.

      New York: The Quadrangle Press,, 1948. Translated by Eunice Clark. Quarto. Original turquoise boards, spine lettered in green and decorated in red, large snake motif in red on front cover. With the dust jacket. Title page printed in red & black. Illustrated throughout by Alexander Calder. Contemporary Christmas presentation inscription on front free endpaper. Jacket spine toned and with a few scratches, a couple of chips to panels. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing. Signed by both Calder and the translator Eunice Clark. "Quadrangle Press was a short-lived, small-scale publishing house active in New York in the late 1940s which put out monographs on Miro, Tamayo, Pippin, and not much else. These illustrations for Quadrangle's 1948 edition of Jean de la Fontaine's 17th-century classic Selected Fables were done by Alexander Calder in a line art style evocative of his figurative metal wire sculptures. From 'The Rat and the Elephant' to 'The Horse and the Wolf,' these squiggly illustrations show off Calder's more spontaneous, illustrative side" (Guggenheim online).

        The Second World War. Vol. I: The Gathering Storm; Vol. II: Their Finest Hour; Vol. III: The Grand Alliance; Vol. IV: The Hinge of Fate; Vol. V: Closing the Ring; Vol. VI: Triumph and Tragedy

      London: Cassell & Co., Ltd, 1948. First English edition. 6 vols. 8vo. Bound in full dark blue polished morocco with floral device on spine instead of the usual lion. Fine set. First English edition. 6 vols. 8vo. Churchill's History of the Second World War is not only a masterpiece of the field, but tries to account for the largest event in human history. Its six volumes span the period from the end of the First World War to July 1945, and Churchill's own role in it cannot be overstated. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953, a year before the final volume was published.

        The Second World War

      Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Company,, 1948?-53. 6 volumes, octavo (206 x 140 mm). Finely bound for J. N. Bartfield of New York in red morocco, titles to spines gilt, raised bands ruled in gilt, lion rampant and crown devices to compartments, author's signature in facsimile gilt to front boards, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. A fine set. First US editions, first printings, preceding the first UK editions. Churchill's masterpiece is generally considered the single most important historical account of the Second World War. As Max Beloff observed, 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: "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.

        Filmkultúra [Theory of the Film] (First Edition, inscribed the year prior to publication)

      Budapest: Szikra Kiadas, 1948. First Hungarian Edition, preceding all others. Lengthily INSCRIBED by the author in Hungarian in the year preceding publication on the first blank leaf, ending with "Budapest / 47.XII.14." A rare signature. A renaissance man in the world of early cinema, Balázs began writing film criticism, poetry, librettos, and screenplays in 1907, and died after a very prolific career in 1949, one year after the publication of this title. The book was subsequently published in English by Denis Dobson in 1952 as "Theory of the Film" to great acclaim, presenting in a fully developed form the concepts he basically invented throughout his career. Balázs wrote his first book on film, "Der Sichtbare Mensch" ["The Visible Man"] in 1924 and helped found the German "film as a language" theory, which profoundly influenced Eisenstein and Pudovkin. He also wrote the librettos for Bartók's "The Wooden Prince" and Zoltán Kodály's "Bluebeard's Castle," and wrote the screenplays for G.W. Pabst's "Die Dreigroschenoper in 1931, Leni Riefenstahl's "Das Blaue Licht" (which he also co-directed) in 1932 and Géza von Radványi's "It Happened in Europe" in 1947. Near Fine in linen-covered boards, patterned endpapers, page edges lightly toned. Reference Wikipedia for English-language title. Page edges toned.
