      Sáirséal agus Dill, Dublin 1949 - First edition. A clean unmarked copy with the scare dust wrapper, and publisher's loosely inserted promotional slip. The oversized wrapper is chipped at the edges with some minor loss, with a 1" chip to the foot of the spine. The wrapper overall in very good condition, and copies invariable suffer due to its size. Minor rubbing to the edges of the text block, the text appears unread, not price clipped or inscribed. A nice copy of one of the classics of 20th century Irish literature, recently revived and translated into English. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Jour de fete (Original French Film Program)

      Cady Films, Paris 1949 - Original French program for the 1949 Jacques Tati film, "Jour de Fete," the director's first feature-length movie, about a day in the life of a rural French postman, illustrated throughout in color by Rene Peron. Rather than being a typical program with biographies, photographs, film stills, and essays, Tati's approach is to introduce the film's cast and crew details, then tell its story along with illustrations, in the manner of a children's book. "Jour de fete" was shot in both Thomson-Color and black-and-white, and due to processing difficulties with the former, only the black-and-white version was seen for decades, until 1995 when the color version was restored. Fascinatingly, this rare program clearly illustrates the vivid color that Tati intended audiences in France and Europe to see--though no one did. Tall card wrappers in full color, saddle-stitched, with full-color illustrations throughout and photomontages from the film printed on the wrapper verso. 12 x 8 inches. About Near Fine. A unique piece from one of the most important French films of the twentieth century.BFI 603, Criterion 730. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Prima stampa della Scena V dell'atto II della Fedra di Jean Racine, nella traduzione inedita di Giuseppe Ungaretti, con 7 litografie originali di Enzo Del Prato e Gianni Polidori.

      Cartella editoriale in cartoncino, In-4° (cm 33 x 28), titolo in facciata 'Ah! Cruel,... J'aime'. Nell'interno 16 fogli sciolti, di cui il primo muto, con firma autografa di Giuseppe Ungaretti; seguono gli altri stampati solo al recto, di cui 7 con testo in facsimile della traduzione e a stampa dell'originale francese, e 7 con litografie originali in nero, tutte firmate e datate a lapis dagli artisti. L'ultimo foglio è di giustificazione della tiratura: 135 esemplari numerati dall' 1 al 135 / 10 esemplari contrassegnati dall' A alla L (il nostro esemplare è il n° 135). Questa cartella è stata curata da Roberto Bulla litografo e dalle Arti Grafiche Falsetti, per conto de 'Le edizioni d'Argo', Roma, Via Niso n° 6. Enzo DEL PRATO, all'anagrafe Vincenzo Del Prato (Roma, 1924) è stato architetto e scenografo cinematografico. Ha collaborato con alcuni tra i maggiori registi italiani, da Visconti a Lattuada, da Fellini a Pietrangeli. Dal 1980 ha insegnato Scenografia cinematografica al Centro sperimentale di cinematografia di Roma. È autore del Manuale di scenografia 'Il cinema, la televisione, il teatro' (prefazione di Alberto Lattuada, Roma, La Nuova Italia Scientifica, 1990). Gianni POLIDORI (Roma, 7 novembre 1923 - 19 agosto 1992) risiede nella capitale sino al 1936; trasferitosi a Venezia con la famiglia, intraprende i primi studi sul disegno presso l'Istituto d'Arte, di cui frequenta i corsi serali; rientrato a Roma nel 1940 si iscrive al Liceo Artistico, dove segue le lezioni di Renato Guttuso, che diventerà un punto di riferimento per la sua formazione stilistica e figurativa. Dopo la guerra riprende i suoi studi nel 1945, iscrivendosi alla Scuola di Scenografia dell'Accademia di Belle Arti e successivamente al Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia (presso cui si diplomerà nel 1948), dove studia sotto la guida di Guido Fioroni e Gino Sensani. Inizia a lavorare come aiuto scenografo per il cinema e per il teatro, collaborando con Giacomo Gentilomo, Roberto Rossellini, Luigi Squarzina, Luciano Salce, Vittorio Gassman, Emanuele Luzzati; parallelamente prosegue la sua attività pittorica. A Roma entra in contatto con intellettuali, poeti e scrittori, come Angelo Maria Ripellino, Emilio Villa, Giuseppe Ungaretti. A questo periodo risale l'esperienza della casa editrice Le Edizioni d'Argo, da lui fondata. Nei primi anni Cinquanta si dedica soprattutto al teatro, con alcune proposte scenografiche ispirate al teatro americano, tra cui - per la regia di Luchino Visconti - 'Morte di un commesso viaggiatore' (1951), e - per la regia di Luigi Squarzina - 'È mezzanotte, dottor Schweitzer' (1954), 'Il potere e la gloria' (1955), 'J. B.' (1958). Nello stesso periodo collabora anche con Michelangelo Antonioni per l'allestimento dei film 'I vinti' (1952), 'La signora senza camelie' (1954), 'Le amiche' (1955) e - sotto la guida di Luchino Visconti - collabora al film 'Bellissima' del 1952. Nel '62 si ricorda la sua partecipazione al film 'Le quattro giornate di Napoli' di Nanni Loy; in questo periodo si collocano anche le sue collaborazioni con la televisione. Dal 1967 al 1968 insegna scenografia presso il Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia di Roma; dal '71 all'86 è Professore associato di Elementi di Scenografia al Dams, presso l'Università di Bologna, e nel 1984 fonda a Genova presso l'Istituto Byron la Scuola di Comunicazione Visiva, in collaborazione con Emanuele Luzzati e Raimondo Sirotti. Dorso della cartellina rifatto, piccoli strappetti restaurati al risvolto della busta, brunitura sui margini di tutte le pagine. Estremamente raro, non citato da Gambetti e Vezzosi; un esemplare è censito nel volume di Ralph Jentsch 'I Libri d'Artista Italiani del Novecento' (Ed. Alemandi).

        The Twelve Ravens: A Lithuanian Fairy Tale [SIGNED]

      München: T. J. Vizgirda, 1949. First edition. Hardcover. poor to g. Signed and dated on colophon. 528/560. 4to. 28pp. Original illustrated dustjacket over tan paper-covered boards with brown lettering on cover. Artist book illustrated with nine original woodcuts by Vaclovas Ratas, initials in plates, hand-set letterpress text. Translation revised by Mark J. Kinney and text edited by Paulius Jurkus. Volume XXVII of "Lithuania - Country and Nation." The woodcuts are similar to the German Expressionist style using stiff angular images and aggressive sharp broken lines.Dustjacket with major wear, bottom third of back part of dj and most of dj spine missing, flaps separated and various medium chips along edges. Binding with one-inch chip at head, and three-inch chip at tail of spine missing. Some sunning along edges of boards. Browning to pages of block not affecting text or images. Dj in poor, book in good condition. Though in poor condition, very rare with dj. Vaclovas Ratas' (1910-1973) work is known for his basic approach of simplicity, sincerity and his love for decorative values. His work is not true to one particular style but executed in varying styles and techniques. He was a founding member of FORMA in 1931, a group of seven Lithuanian artists and his work was exhibited internationally. In 1937 he was awarded the Prix d'Honeur for his woodcut illustrations in "Jurate and Kastytis," a ballad of the Lithuanian Poet Maironis. During his exile in Germany from 1945-1949 Ratas started his own art school and in 1949 created the nine woodcuts for "The Twelve Ravens." In the same year Ratas emigrated to Perth, Australia. "The speed with which the émigré artist embraced Aboriginal art is astounding. Vaclovas Ratas who landed in Perth in 1949 produced woodcuts that incorporated Aboriginal motifs by the end of that year." (Roger Butler). Ratas eventually settled in Sydney which was dominated by abstract art. He joined the Lithuanian artist group Aitvaras (The Goblin). Ratas Australian period is considered the least productive one though his style became more colorful and joyful.

        THE GOLDEN APPLES along with an AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED (ANS)

      New York: Harcourt Brace, (1949). First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine, lacking the dustwrapper. INSCRIBED by the author for William Archibald "with best wishes" and SIGNED by her "at Upper Grand View on May 26, 1956." Archibald, from Trinidad, wrote the book and lyrics for two musicals: CARIB SONG in 1945 and THE CRYSTAL HEART in 1960. The latter starred Mildred Dunnock and earned some praise from the critics including this comment by Harold Hobson of the 1957 London production: "I would rather have written this failure than successes like THE KING AND I and SOUTH PACIFIC." More to the point, Welty in the early 1950s corresponded with Archibald in the hopes that he would create a musical from her novel THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM, a project that never materialized. Laid into the book is a Christmas card from Welty to Archibald showing a Santa on the deck of a ferry named "Miss Noel." Inside the card Welty has written: "Variety tells me you went to Europe for beginning CRYSTAL HEART, so who knows when the Miss Noel will catch up with you. This is to say hello, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and fabulous success with the London opening [it closed after only four performances]. I'll be reading about it in the papers. All the best for 1957 from Eudora." Welty has also added a one-line note to Bean, Baldwin Bergersen, Archibald's companion and musical collaborator. Archibald's loose bookplate laid in with the adhesive stain from it on the front pastedown.

        L'Art non figuratif non objectif. Introduction de Pierre Peissi.- Exemplaire signé par l'artiste.

      P., Lydia Conti, 10 septembre 1949. 23 x 19 cm, 131 p., 7 pochoirs originaux en couleurs h.-t., 17 planches en noir dans le texte (expérimentation du prisme). Broché, couv. impr. Parfait état. Edition originale, tirage limité à 1000 ex. num., exemplaire signé par Herbin. Ce traité fondamental de Herbin est l'une des références majeures de la peinture abstraite de cette époque. Pour Auguste Herbin (1882-1960), la couleur a son langage propre, qu'il associe d'abord à des formes simples rythmiquement organisées, avant d'établir un système de relation étroite entre la couleur et la forme qui constituera l'originalité de l'uvre abstraite qu'il accomplit à partir de 1940 pour exprimer " une vision spirituelle de l'univers ". Il élabore un " alphabet plastique " fondé sur les couleurs pures combinées avec les figures élémentaires de la géométrie plane : cercle, carré, rectangle, triangle, losange. L'utilisation de cet alphabet est codifiée dans "l'Art non figuratif non objectif" que publie la galerie Lydia Conti. Herbin exerce une grande influence sur les jeunes artistes abstraits d'après-guerre.

      Allan Wingate. LEATHER BOUND. B01M5HTJPC Fine binding. 1949 Allan Wingate (London), six 5 x 7 3/8 inches tall red full leather bound volumes, all signed Bayntun-Riviere bindings, gilt ruled boards, five raised bands and gilt lettering and decoration to spine, all page edges gilt, marbled endpapers with gilt dentelles framing both front and rear pastedowns, title pages printed in pink and black, 528, 624, 558, 462, 528, 464 pp. (total 3,164 pages). Mild rubbing to covers, with a bit of slight wear beginning to appear to a couple of exterior front hinges. Otherwise, a very good to near fine set, and an outstanding example of the magnificent artistry of the historic Bayntun-Riviere bindery, which dates back to 1829. Reference: OCLC No. 14039702. Note that this is a heavy and oversized set, so additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. ~RCL~ A six-volume collection of key works of the Bronte sisters, the Heather Edition, arranged and introduced by Phyllis Bentley. Contents: v. 1. Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte. --v. 2. Shirley, by Charlotte Bronte. --v. 3. Villette, by Charlotte Bronte. --v. 4. The professor, by Charlotte Bronte. Poems. Miscellanea. --v. 5. Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte, and Agnes Grey, by Anne Bronte. --v. 6. The tenant of Wildfell Hall, by Anne Bronte. The Brontes were a nineteenth-century literary family associated with the village of Thornton in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. The sisters, Charlotte (1816-1855), Emily (1818-1848), and Anne (1820-1849), are well known as poets and novelists. Like many contemporary female writers, they originally published their poems and novels under male pseudonyms: Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Their stories immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality. Charlotte's Jane Eyre was the first to know success, while Emily's Wuthering Heights, Anne's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature. . Very Good. 1949.

        8 letters signed. Milan, 27 July 1949 through 16 February 1950.

      1949. Nine pages, on eight quarto and octavo leaves. In Italian. Occasional creases and minor isolated foxing, very good. Accompanied by typescript translations. Manzù here writes extensively to Marcelo de Ridder, gallery owner and art dealer in Buenos Aires, concerning the nuts and bolts of an exhibition of his works de Ridder is organizing for late 1949. Always polite, but frequently exasperated, Manzù deals with burdens he feels are de Ridder's responsibilities (customs, shipping, etc), and is justifiably upset when, on 27 December 1949, he writes: "La mia mostra si è aperta e chiusa a mia insaputa senza nessure sapere dagli organizzatori la minima notizia, e questo nonostante le mie risetute preghiere, alle quali non è mai stato risposto. Non ho avuto nemmeno il Catalogo della mostra. Di tutto questo sono veramente stupito, veda di avvicare a quel minimo di gentilezza informandoni almeno dove si trovarro ora le mie opere [...]" ("My exhibition has opened and closed unbeknownst to me, and without my having received the slightest notification from its organizers, despite my repeated requests which were never answered. I did not even receive a catalogue of the exhibition. I am truly amazed at this, could you try to at least have the courtesy to let me know where my works are now [...]", transl.). The 16 February 1950 letter is far more conciliatory and grateful, perhaps as a consequence of having received the exhibition documentation and photographs, with which he is pleased, as well as received proceeds so far of "two hundred thousand lire". - Manzù is most widely known for his public works of sculpture, including the bronze doors at St. Peter's Basilica and two reliefs for Rockefeller Center, but was accomplished and prolific in other media as well. During WWII, his anti-Fascist drawings forced him underground, and in 1968 he was awarded the Lenin Peace Prize for his public stance against Western policies in Southeast Asia.
