        I WALK ALONE (1948)

      Paramount 1948 - Vintage original 22 x 28" (56 x 71 cm.) half sheet poster style B, USA. Burt Lancaster, Lizabeth Scott, Kirk Douglas, Wendell Cory, Kristine Miller, George Rigaud, dir: Byron Haskin; Paramount. Finely remembered and regarded film noir and nice testament to star Lizabeth Scott. When Frankie is sprung out of prison after 14 years, he expects his bootlegging partner, who has since made good, to stick to their 50/50 agreement. Noll Turner has no intention of doing that, even though torch singer femme fatale Kay does her best to intervene. Their first film together, Douglas and Lancaster would form a company and make six more films. Lancaster appears on this poster with Liz Scott. This is by far the best poster for this film which we have ever seen. Paper-backed, originally twice folded, with very minor touch-ups. ABOUT FINE

"Une femme doit avoir l'air sylphide : un soulier plat lui donne l'air matériel ; au lieu qu'un talon haut l'empêche de toucher la terre en quelque sorte et en fait une créature céleste [.] Parmi nous, les Duchesses s'en tiennent presque toutes à ce dernier privilège : elles font les Sylphides chez elles, vont quelquefois se montrer à la Cour, s'enorgueillissent d'un sourire, d'un regard de la souveraine, et reviennent dans leur palais faire le même rôle qu'elles ont vu faire à leur égard.

        Die sprechenden Maschinen Studer-Revox - Das Lebenswerk des Audiopioniers Willi Studer [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Peter Holenstein Das Buch enthält die gründlich recherchierte, dokumentierte und bebilder

      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 legendären Audioprodukte präzis, mit denen die Schweizer Firma Studer-Revox unter ihrem Gründer Willi Studer die Welt eroberte - zumindest die Welt der Ton- und Radiostudios und die der Sprachlabors. Zu ihren bekanntesten Produkten gehört dabei fraglos der nimbusreiche Revox-Plattenspieler, der dank seiner unübertroffenen Qualität heute noch in allen grossen Radio- und vielen Tonstudios im Einsatz ist. Zu erfahren ist dies und noch viel mehr übrigens in dieser kurzweiligen, faktenreichen, reich bebilderten Monografie. Denn sie gibt nicht nur Einblick in Studers Leben, sondern erzählt auch, wie sich seine Firma vom Kleinbetrieb zum Weltkonzern entwickelte und dabei den Rundfunkbereich wie das private Musikhören 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 für Studer-Revox-Fans! Das Buch enthält die gründlich recherchierte, dokumentierte und bebilderte Geschichte der Marken "Studer" und "Revox", Begriffe, die weltweit zu Synomen für perfektionierte Audiotechnik wurden, und es schildert den Werdegang von Willi Studer und seiner Firma. Auf einer zweiten "Tonspur" faßt der Autor die Geschichte der Tonaufnahme von den Visionären bis in die Gegenwart zusammen, die vor mehr als hundert Jahren begann. 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 läßt das Herz eines Revox-Fans höher schlagen.Ein "AHa"- Erlebnis folgt dem anderen.Man blättert in diesem Buch wie in einem persönlichen 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 ausführlich und detailliert. Sein unendliches Streben nach Qualität und Spitzenleistungen wurden belohnt durch stetiges Wachstum und die weltweite Verbreitung der beiden Markennamen Studer und Revox. Der technische Teil des Buches führt den Leser durch ein virtuelles Museum mit sämtlichen Tonbandgeräten und Studiomaschinen, welche von 1948 bis 1990 hergestellt wurden. Dieses Buch ist ein Muss für Studiofreaks und Analogliebhaber.

Pendant près de trois ans, chaque été, j'avais pris plaisir à lui rendre visite, ainsi qu'à sa chère épouse Madeleine, dans leur pays de Lourmarin. Le merveilleux texte, que j'avais la charge d'illustrer, m'avait permis de découvrir et d'exprimer la beauté sauvage des monts du Lubéron, des rives de la Durance". A cette époque, Bosco se faisait construire un petit bastidon, dont les travaux n'en finissaient pas.

        The Second World War

      London: Cassell & Co. Ltd,, 1948–54. 6 volumes, octavo (208 x 132 mm). Contemporary French dark blue half morocco (with the original dust jackets bound in), spines gilt tooled direct, marbled sides and endpapers, tricolour silk page markers. Maps and diagrams, some folding. Touch of foxing to top and fore-edges otherwise a very good set, handsomely bound. First UK editions, first impressions of volumes II-VI, "new edition, revised and reset" of volume I. Signed and dated by Churchill on the front free endpaper: "Winston S. Churchill 1951"; inscribed on the same leaf "To my friend Pierre Crohare. C. J. Gilmour-Wood. Chairman Royal Air Forces Association. Paris Branch 1948/49". Squadron Leader C. J. Gilmour-Wood was a wartime RAF liaison officer and Octave "Pierre" Crohare (b. 1901) a highly-decorated member of the French Résistance. A Parisian, Crohare was a policeman in the 1930s, promoted to special investigator in 1938. However, in 1942 he was dismissed from the force for belonging to a Masonic lodge and giving false information. He then purchased a café (situated at 3 Rue de la Folie-Regnault in the 11 arrondissement) and during the German occupation became a very active member of the clandestine Resistance groups Turma-Vengeance and L'Honneur de la Police. His café soon became a meeting place for the Résistance. Under the pseudonym "Pierre", Crohare worked closely with the maquis. However, in June 1944 he was arrested by the German police, imprisoned, tortured and deported to Péronne. His wife Susanne was also arrested and sent to prison in Fresnes. In 1944 the US First Army released Crohare and he was instrumental in assisting the Americans to clear remaining pockets of German resistance, and acted as an interpreter. After the war he rejoined the police as a commissaire, ending his career as chef des services spéciaux (chief of special services) with responsibility for the protection of visiting dignitaries. He may have met Gilmour-Wood when the latter was in charge of the guard of honour for Princess Elizabeth's visit to Paris in June 1948. They may also have been in attendance during Churchill's visit to Paris in April 1951. Crohare was awarded the Legion d'Honneur, La Croix de Guerre, the Medal of Freedom, and the Medaille de la Résistance avec rosette. Volume II is also inscribed to Crohare (using an anglicized version of his pseudonym): "To 'Peter' hoping that this 'Second Volume' will make him more than anxious to read the 'Third Volume'. W. W. Jackson, Paris 20/6/51." Jackson was a flying officer with the RAF, described by Aeroplane and Commercial Aviation News (Volume 86, 1954) as the "secretary, press officer and general factotum of the [RAF] Association's European Central Committee and the Paris Branch. He will give you a drink in the Free French Club bar and advice and assistance if you are in need of them". The Second World War is Churchill's masterpiece, the single most important historical account of that conflict. Cassell were scrupulous in incorporating Churchill's extensive revisions, and he always insisted that the UK edition was definitive. 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".

        Konvolut Pataphysique.

      Umfangreiches Konvolut des besonders in den 1960er Jahren in Kunst und Literatur einflussreichen Collège de Pataphysique, das einen bis heute aktiven und lange Zeit geheimen Zusammenschluss von Wissenschaftlern, Literaten und Intellektuellen darstellt. Gegründet 1948 in Paris, als Vereinigung zur Förderung von Studien der ?Pataphysik?, einem vom französischen Schriftsteller Alfred Jarry (1873?1907) erdachten absurdistischen Wissenschaftskonzept. Der Begriff der Pataphysik wurde vom Schriftsteller Alfred Jarry im Theaterstück Roi Ubu als Persiflage auf die Naturwissenschaft geprägt. Das Collège hat eine esoterische Verfassung, die in ihrer Struktur und rätselhaften Sprache an freimaurerische Statuten erinnert. Wie in einer Loge gibt es unterschiedliche Grade der Mitgliedschaft.

September 1873 beginnt. - Neben einigen Heften mit wissenschaftlichen und literarischen Studien aus den verschiedenen vom Collège herausgegebene Schriftenreihen (siehe unten) auch mit diversen internen Veröffentlichungen (u.a: Troisième Manifeste / N?oubliez pas de renouvelez votre abonnement! / Èlection / Collection des Cahiers du Collège de Pataphysique / Institutum Pataphysicum Mediolanense (68 x 49 cm) / 1 gelaufenes Kuvert hs. adressiert an den österr.

        Minutes of the William Blake Trust.

      - London: 1948-1969. Thick folio, 240 pp. with manuscript notes and typed minutes pasted in throughout. Original half red roan, blue moiré boards, lettered "Minute Book" in gilt. In very good condition, tips worn. Essentially the entire history of the founding of the Blake Trust and the Trianon Press, from the earliest days discussing financial and legal arrangements through the production details for every book up to and including "Europe". All the reports are signed by Geoffrey Keynes in his distinctive brown ink, and the text is annotated and otherwise added to by Arnold Fawcus in his distinctive green ink. An archival item of great importance, documenting the publishing history of one of the greatest ventures of the 20th century. As the TLS noted, nothing like these books had ever been made before nor was ever likely to be made again. Reading the account of the creating of the Blake Trust as well as Fawcus's other ventures (all of which teetered constantly on the edge of bankruptcy), this minute book proves fascinating as it provides the dry details of the Board meetings with Fawcus, Keynes, Goyder, Preston and later Rosenwald and Mellon. A biographical note records: "The series of extraordinary facsimiles of watercolor works by Cezanne were seen by Geoffrey Keynes, at an exhibit in Boston. Sir Geoffrey inquired of Arnold whether or not he might be able to produce quality reproduction in collotype and pochoir work for one of the most important, most astonishing illuminated works in engraving and literary history, Blake's Jerusalem. The estimate, at the uneconomical low price of 4,000 pounds for 500 copies of the unique Jerusalem, led to what might be called a corporate venture into sublime achievement. An original subvention of approximately L15,000, which was granted by Sir Geoffrey's old friend, Graham Robertson, provided, title by title, the support and publication of each volume of The Trianon Press. Sir Geoffrey formed and directed the affairs of The William Blake Trust, the official body which selected and commissioned each title. Arnold and his Press produced a remarkable sequence of works without rival. The facsimiles of Blake are of such quality that they could scarcely be detected from the original works held by such connoisseurs as Lessing J. Rosenwald and Paul Mellon."
