Dust jacket now enclosed in new clear Mylar protectorBut all in all an extremely nice copy of this rare signed and relatively fragile 67 year old book.Absolutely no odor ! Rarity of book is increased because I don't believe Capote signed his books on the title page very often ? Board corners are all nice sharp and undamaged..Capote's first book with his controversial, extravagant pose for the rear dust jacket..Truman Capote was a happening, a cultural event, a whirlwind seldom seen to appear on the American landscape..Great piece of history and Americana here..

        Crusade in Europe.

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, 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).

        The Third Man Second Draft Script

      [Culver City: David O. Selznick,] 19 July, 1948. Typescript, original blue wrappers, typescript titles to covers, copy number "21" added in blue ink stamp. Housed in a dark blue flat back cloth solander box. An excellent copy. Second draft script. The in-house mimeographed script of the American adaptation as produced by David O. Selznick. Greene originally developed The Third Man as a film treatment in association with Alexander Korda and Selznick. Friction between the parties led to battles which would impact considerably on the finished film. These arguments were mostly due to Selznick's somewhat paranoid views regarding homosexuality, anti-Americanism and perversely Greene's casting of the central characters as British. Eventually many of the changes demanded by Selznick would be adopted including the nationality of the central characters, the abandonment of Holly for Rollo and the alteration to several minor roles. However many of the revisions evidenced in the present draft were refused by Reed and Korda which refusal would lead to the production of two quite distinct versions of the final release one for the US audience the other for general release. Whilst this draft is far from the finished article it allows great insight into the working process by which Selznick imposed his will onto this quintessentially British film.

        Die Zustände in Berlin werden immer friedensmäßiger, er ist schon fast so wie im Jahren 1932! (Reinzeichnung auf Karton, Mischtechnik)

      (1948) 1948 - 45 x 33 cm. Soll laut rückseitiger Notiz im Ulenspiegel 1 / 1950 erschienen sein, also schon nach Holtz' Prozess. Demnach dort in veränderter farbgebung, nämlich in Schwarz, Blau und rotstichigem Gelb. Verso von Holtz signiert, und mit dem Stempel von Herbert Sandberg. Karl Holtz (1899 - 1978) war sicherlich einer der besten und produktivsten linken Karikaturisten und Illustratoren der Weimarer Republik. Er arbeitete für SPD-Publikationen, für USPD und KPD, bis hin zum Syndikalist. Während des NS hatte er als Pressezeichner Berufsverbot, er schuf aber, meist anonym oder unter Pseudonym, Umschlagillustrationen für zahlreiche Kriminalromane (teils bei Auffenberg, wo ja früher die 'Ente' erschienen war). Von 1939 bis März 1945 (Desertion) war er Soldat, und dann begann seine zweite Karriere. Die fand allerdings bald eine Ende, als eine 1948 in der Schweizerischen Zeitschrift 'Nebelspalter' veröffentlichte Stalin-Karikatur zur Verhaltung und einer Verurteilung wegen 'antisowjetischer Agitation' zu 25 Jahren Zwangsarbeit führte. Bis 1956 saß er in Bautzen ein. Danach wieder Arbeit für DDR-Verlage, die NBI, etc.(biographische Angaben nach Wolfgang U. Schüttes 2004 an entlegenem Ort, der Zeitschrift 'Vitrine', veröffentlichten Bio-Bibliographie). Der Ulenspiegel wurde übrigens auch 1950 eingestellt, und Sandberg, der bereits 1949 als 'Formalist' attackiert worden war, verlor 1957 nochmal die Leitung eines Blattes (Bildende Kunst). Zum Reiz von Holtz' Zeichnungen trägt oft der enorme Detailreichtum bei, sowie die Spannung zwischen (scheinbar) kühl-perfekter Zeichentechnik und grotesker Bildfindung. 1200 Sprache: ger [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Space Cadet

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1948 - This is the first edition of the author’s second novel, a superior copy approaching near fine condition in a near fine dust jacket. The dark blue cloth binding, illustrated in light blue on the front cover and printed in light blue on the spine, is square, tight, and clean. Light wear is confined to the spine ends and corners, with just a hint of fraying at the spine ends. First printing is confirmed by the Scribner’s "A" on the copyright page. The contents remain respectably bright with no spotting or previous ownership marks. The page edges, including the untrimmed fore edge, are likewise clean apart from the slightest toning to the top edge. The illustrated dust jacket is a particularly bright example, clean, bright, and complete. The original $2.50 front flap price is intact, confirming the first printing status of the dust jacket. The yellow printed rocket illustration that wraps from the front cover to the spine shows no dulling or toning. Light wear is confined to the spine ends, rear hinge, and rear flap fold. The dust jacket is protected with a removable, archival quality clear cover. Space Cadet, published by Scribner's in 1948, is Heinlein's second novel in his "Juveniles" series spanning the late 1940s to late 1950s. The main character, Matt Dobson, joins the Space Patrol, charged with preserving peace in the Solar System. Through a series of adventures in the Asteroid Belt and on Venus, Dobson transitions from a boy into a man. The story was influenced by Heinlein's own experience at the U.S. Naval Academy in the 1920s (right down to the space cadets’ "oyster-white uniforms"). Today, tales of space adventures are part of the cultural mainstream. To put Heinlein’s work in the context, when he sought to publish his first novel, Rocket Ship Galileo (1947), featuring teenagers who participate in a pioneering flight to the moon, the book was allegedly initially rejected because going to the moon was "too far out". Heinlein’s second novel helped bring space travel into radios, televisions, and comics, by inspiring the "Tom Corbett, Space Cadet" media empire of the 1950s. Space Cadet also cemented the niche Heinlein would successfully occupy as an author of what we now call "young adult" science fiction. Heinlein’s so-called "Juveniles" ran to a dozen novels published before 1959, when Heinlein’s Starship Troopers created a literary line of demarcation for Heinlein, which saw him more infuse his work with more complex and controversial cultural, political, and philosophical perspectives. Intriguingly, Space Cadet and Starship Troopers share a kinship, both based on the premise of an elite force culled from humanity’s best entrusted with protecting human civilization. Robert Anson Heinlein (1907-1988) was one of the "Big Three" of American science fiction writers, along with Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. A prolific writer with a career spanning half a century, Heinlein published more than 30 novels, along with numerous short stories and collections. When Space Cadet was published, another four decades of writing lay ahead of Heinlein, including the bulk of his work, and the accompanying recognition. Heinlein would go on to win the Hugo Award for best novel four times - for Double Star in 1956, Starship Troopers in 1959, Stranger in a Strange Land in 1961, and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress in 1966. Heinlein was lauded not just for individual stories, but also for weaving a coherent and often thought-provoking speculative future; Heinlein’s "Future History" series was nominated for a Best All-Time Series Hugo Award in a very strong field in 1966, losing (along with fellow nominee The Lord of the Rings) to Asimov’s Foundation series. The title of this second novel by Heinlein would ultimately become a household word and entering the cultural lexicon, albeit evolving in meaning over time. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Evolution of the Universe

      London: Macmillan & Co. First Edition. Fine. FIRST EDITION IN RARE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of one of Gamow's foundational papers on the Big Bang and the origin of the universe, leading to determinations of the age and temperature of the universe. "In his article in Nature on 'The Evolution of the Universe,' George Gamow presented... a visionary picture of the redshift in the spectra of distant galaxies, on the one hand, and the idea that the relative abundances of various atomic species constitute 'the most ancient archaeological document pertaining to the history of the universe' (Gamow, 1948, p. 680). From more detailed calculations of his student Ralph Alpher, Gamow drew some sharp consequences, such as: The building-up processes of the chemical elements must have occurred in the first thirty minutes where the temperature of the hot initial state had dropped to about 10^9 K and 'the expansion of the universe was governed entirely by radiation and not yet matter' (Gamow, loc. cit., p. 681). By evaluating further the time-dependence of the radiation density and the matter density, respectively, he argued that the formation of galaxies began once the densities had become equal. Alpher and Robert Herman then improved upon some of the sloppy errors in Gamow's theory and obtained an age of 10^7 years for the Universe at that moment; i.e., 'the temperature of the gas at the time of the condensation was 600 K, and the temperature in the universe at the present time is found to be about 5 K' (Alpher and Herman, 1948, p. 775)" " (Mehra, The Historical Development of Quantum Theory). IN: Nature, Vol 162, No. 4122, October 30, 1948, pp. 680-682. London: Macmillan & Co., 1948. Octavo, original wrappers; custom box. A few light pencil notations to wrappers. A fine copy, very rare in original wrappers.

She referred to Dissociator and Activator as "controlling units"?later, as "controlling elements"?to distinguish them from genes. She hypothesized that gene regulation could explain how complex multicellular organisms made of cells with identical genomes have cells of different function.[47] McClintock's discovery challenged the concept of the genome as a static set of instructions passed between generations.[2] In 1950, she reported her work on Ac/Ds and her ideas about gene regulation in a paper entitled "The origin and behavior of mutable loci in maize" published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In summer 1951, when she reported her work on the origin and behavior of mutable loci in maize at the annual symposium at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, presenting a paper of the same name. The paper delved into the instability caused by Dc and As or just As in four genes, along with the tendency of those genes to unpredictably revert to the wild phenotype. She also identified "families" of transposons, which did not interact with one another.[2][48][44] Her work on controlling elements and gene regulation was conceptually difficult and was not immediately understood or accepted by her contemporaries; she described the reception of her research as "puzzlement, even hostility".[49][44] Nevertheless, McClintock continued to develop her ideas on controlling elements. She published a paper in Genetics in 1953, where she presented all her statistical data, and undertook lecture tours to universities throughout the 1950s to speak about her work.[50] She continued to investigate the problem and identified a new element that she called Suppressor-mutator (Spm), which, although similar to Ac/Ds, acts in a more complex manner. Like Ac/Ds, some versions could transpose on their own and some could not; unlike Ac/Ds, when present, it fully suppressed the expression of mutant genes when they normally would not be entirely suppressed.[51] Based on the reactions of other scientists to her work, McClintock felt she risked alienating the scientific mainstream, and from 1953 stopped publishing accounts of her research on controlling elements." "The importance of McClintock's contributions was revealed in the 1960s, when the work of French geneticists Francois Jacob and Jacques Monod described the genetic regulation of the lac operon, a concept she had demonstrated with Ac/Ds in 1951."
