A choice group of the sporting prints commissioned by William Woodward, owner of the Belair Stables."Brown Betty" by T.P. Earl (1874-1947) is previously unrecorded and never seen by Ordeman, whose 2005 book collected prior knowledge on the prints. One other print by British artist T.P. Earl (Flares) is noted by Ordeman, date unknown, but in personal communication he reports that his information comes at second hand., and has never seen "Brown Betty". The print is, however, in the collection of the Belair Mansion Museum (established after Woodward's death at his Maryland residence). Brown Betty won the 1933 1000 Guineas race, and the painting by T.P. Earl that Woodward commissioned is dated 1933 in the plate. The paper and production of this color print differ from the aquatint horse portraits commissioned from Connett and Frank Lowe. Given the date of the portrait, we conjecture that Woodward commissioned the print in London, and thus it may predate and be the point of origin for the series of prints commissioned from Connett. In recent conversation, Ordeman advanced a similar hypothesis.The Megargee print, "Marguerite", with her colt Gallant Fox, is from the collection of Derrydale Press publisher Eugene V. Connett, 3rd.Rare and important.

        [Manuscript]: A Study of Medical and Public Health Problems in Whittier, Alaska

      Whittier, Alaska. 1948. An original typescript report by Dr. Ruth Hennessey Bowe stationed in Alaska with her husband, Dr. John Bowe, the head of the Whittier Dispensary, the lone hospital run by the U.S. Army Medical Corps. Quarto. 100pp., typed rectos only. Illustrated with hand drawn maps and 26 captioned, black and white photographs. Clasp-bound brown binder with typed paper label. Some waviness to the covers from moisture but with little or no effect to the interior leaves, very good or better.An overview of Whittier, Alaska with a (then) recent history of the area, including an overview of local industries (fishing, construction, lumber), transportation (railroad and shipping), public utilities (water and sewage), and the local work force with a particular focus on health issues, such as accommodations, safety regulations (or lack thereof, with a list of typical injuries suffered), workplace conditions, sanitation, and health services. Bowe concludes that little effort above the officially required rules govern most industries in the area, resulting in untrained labor, generally unsafe work environments, with poor sanitation, and only the barest of amenities. The result is a workforce populated mostly by rough, ill-mannered migrant workers.The 30 pages of text are illustrated with a half-dozen hand drawn illustrations of Prince William Sound, local town maps showing the route of the railroad, a state view showing other Alaskan cities, and a diagram of the hospital. The photographs are a mix of commercially produced photo postcards and original photographs (measuring 5.5" x 3.5" and 2" x 2") showing fishing boats, barges, docks, water storage tanks, a lumber mill, a glacier, a military hospital, a railroad, and several aerial views of Anchorage. Also laid in are two issues of Alaskan Health produced by the U.S. Public Health Service from February and May of 1948.A firsthand report on an important Alaskan port city during the early but vital post war years. .

The illustrations in this work bear comparison to those he made for Ovid's L'Art d'Aimer of 1935. Both books being perfect texts to be accompanied by his voluptuous nudes. The lithographs in this work were printed by Mourlot four years after Maillol's death. One of an edition of 275 copies. For some reason this is a very scarce book.

        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.

        RKO PRESENTS JOHN STEINBECK'S THE PEARL [caption title - Complete set of eight color lobby cards]

      [Los Angeles]: RKO / National Screen Services, 1948.. Complete set of eight 11 x 14 inch color lobby cards. Small marginal mend on verso of card 6, a few minor marginal nicks, minor soft creases to card 7 (barely visible except on the blank verso), light dust smudges to versos, but a very good or better set. A complete set, including the title card, of the lobby cards promoting the 1948 U.S. release of the 1947 film adaptation of Steinbeck's novella. The film (first released as LA PERLA) was produced in Mexico by Film Asociados Mexico-Americanos in association with Águila Films, and was directed by Emilio Fernandez, who also collaborated with Steinbeck and Jack Wagner on the screenplay. Master of golden age Mexican cinema, Gabriel Figueroa, served as cinematographer, and won a Golden Globe Award for his work on this film. Steinbeck's conception of THE PEARL as a cinematic vehicle from the start (he discussed it as a film with Fernandez as early as 1941), and his active participation in its production, make it of particular significance in the field of Steinbeck- related film. Complete sets are uncommon.

      First edition, one of the numbered copies on foam alfa, ours unjustified.Invaluable and unique autograph dedication signed by the author Jean-Paul Sartre.Our copy is presented shirt and bag full carton almond, part of title and marked "copy of JP Sartre" red morocco.The dedication of the Pope of Surrealism to the master of existentialism whose rare meetings, including New York, have left almost no trace in the biographies, is all the more surprising that Jean-Paul Sartre just published in Qu 'What is literature a vitriolic article against Breton:"The tentative agreement Surrealism and PC against the bourgeoisie does not exceed the formalism; This is the formal notion of negativity that unites; [...] Negativity continues whatever may be said, apart from the story: both in the moment and in the eternal; it is the absolute end of literature and art. Somewhere Breton says [...] the "sacred trust" of the proletariat. But specifically, this class is designed as a legion of angels exterminators is truly for authors as a religious myth and plays for the stilling of their consciousness, similar to that played the role myth People in 1848 for writers of good will. "André Breton will not respond to criticism of Sartre more than those that formulate the following year, Simone de Beauvoir in The Second Sex.This little political work as much as poetic however is in the common struggle of two intellectuals in the very short-lived Revolutionary Democratic Rally founded in 1947 by Sartre quickly aborted despite having assets investment Breton.1948 was therefore the only intellectual meeting of these two great "thinkers" of the late twentieth, whose personalities, exclusive and uncompromising did not allow a communion of sustainable thinking.  Robert Marin Paris 1948 11x17cm broché sous chemise et étui
