      1949. Nel 1949, nel pieno fervore della ricostruzione, LUIGI RUSCA, fedele, sapiente ed antico collaboratore di ANGELO RIZZOLI, gli propose di pubblicare libri già conosciuti al grande pubblico ma ad un costo assai economico e di "piccolo formato", proposta che si sposava perfettamente alla "situazione" italiana. PAOLO LUCIDANO, intellettuale napoletano fu il protagonista della "scelta" delle opere da pubblicare: il consenso ed il successo confermarono e tuttora ne confermano la felice iniziativa "culturale" La collezione che qui presentiamo è composta di 535 titoli, tutti in buone condizioni che rappresentano già cosi' una BIBLIOTECA QUALIFICATA che è anche una consistente parte di tutto il PUBBLICATO.

        President Truman signs a Dwight D. Eisenhower, American Red Cross Citation for distinguished service

      [Washington, DC], 1949. 14" x 11". "Large American Red Cross Citation awarded to Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1949 and signed by ""Harry Truman"", as President of The United States. 14"" x 11"" on card stock. Fine condition.An attractive, rare, and large American Red Cross Citation awarded to Dwight D. Eisenhower, dated 1949 (several years before his presidential term) in ""Grateful Recognition of Distinguished Humanitarian Service During the 1949 Fund Campaign"". Signed by President Harry Truman. Although the citation does not go into more detail, one can presume it may have likely revolved around Eisenhower's contribution with his involvement in numerous pre and post war efforts. The Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center (EAMC) is a 93-bed medical treatment facility started as Camp Gordon Station Hospital in 1941, located near Augusta, Georgia which was set up to care for World War II casualties and dependents. Although closed in 1946, it reopened as Camp Gordon and became the more permanent Fort Gordon during the Cold War. In addition Eisenhower championed the rebuilding and aid to Western Europe, the POW's and to ""European Recovery Program"", an American initiative to aid Western Europe to rebuild their economies and help the civilians after the end of World War II. The plan was in operation for four years beginning April 8, 1948, with the intent to assist in rebuilding war devastated regions. A unique award, in crisp, clean condition which would present well framed."

        Nineteen Eighty-Four A Novel

      London: Secker & Warburg,, 1949. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in red, top edge red. With the red dust jacket. An excellent, bright copy in the jacket with some nicks and rubbing to spine ends, spine panel slightly faded, though less so than usually encountered, short closed tear to head of front spine fold, some minor nicks and creasing to extremities. First edition, first impression. Copies of the first impression were issued either in green or dark red dust jackets. To judge from surviving examples, this was done in proportions of about two green to one red. The red jackets are far more susceptible to fading, and as a consequence, surviving copies in nice condition are uncommon.

Es war damals eines von wenigen künstlerisch wirklich anspruchsvollen Fotobüchern mit einer eigenen Bildsprache, für welche das Verständnis erst zu keimen begann. Insofern steht diese Publikation als Meilenstein da und rechtfertigt darum den Nachdruck in der vorliegenden Form.Dass diese eigenwillige Bildsprache so lange Zeit benötigte, um verstanden zu werden, verwundert heute. Es ist diese Sprache, die in Groeblis facettenreichem Werk in jeder Phase sichtbar ist und die in jeder seiner Werkgruppen zum Ausdruck kommt.Kenner der Fotografie sammeln Arbeiten von René Groebli, weil sein Werk eine Konstanz in allen Bewertungskriterien aufweist, die auf diesem Niveau äusserst selten ist.Das überaus vielfältige Werk umfasst etliche Themengruppen, die mit ihrer Aussage der Zeit voraus waren. Groebli hat stets alle technischen Möglichkeiten mit grossem handwerklichem Können genutzt, wie zum Beispiel die Bewegungsunschärfe oder das Herausarbeiten von Kornstrukturen.

        Neue Motive Jugendstil Art noveau Textildruck Passau Brünn

      Sie bieten auf eine absolute seltene original Rarität von ca. 1949, extrem selten, wahrscheinlich bisher völlig unbekannt: Vielzahl an Druckstöcke, Umschlägen, über 1000 Tafeln und ca. 10 bereits vollständig und kolorierte zusammengestellte Werke Neue Motive Professor Alois Bohla mit zahlreichen bisher unbekannten Motiven - nicht nur Pflanzen sondern auch von abstrahierten Tieren! Eine sensationelle Entdeckung. Prof. Bohla wollte - nach der Vertreibung aus Brünn - in Passau an seinen früheren Erfolg in Brünn anknüpfen und verlegte eine neue Mappe mit 20 Motiven. Vermutlich durch seinen Tod kam diese Mappe erst gar nicht in den Handel. Hier wird der komplette Bestand dieses Unterfangens 65 Jahre später angeboten. Einschließlich der Druckstöcke, und auch früherer Druckstöcke aus seiner Brünner Zeit. Aus verständlichen Gründen möchte ich die Motive hier nicht einstellen, sondern diese "Erst-Entdeckung" dem Käufer überlassen! Bei echtem Interesse bitte um Kontakt: 08507/208 Alois Bohla war Professor der Lehranstalt für Textilindustrie in Brünn. Zum Künstler allg. siehe: Ausst. Kat. Maß und Freiheit, Textilkunst im Jugendstil von Behrens bis Olbrich, Barbara Hardtwig, Villa Stuck München, München 2010, S. 48-53. von ihm bekannt ist die folgende Mappe: Bohla, Alois (Hrsg.) Neue Motive für moderne Flächenverzierung. 24 Tafeln in Farbendruck, Studien nach der Natur mit daraus gewonnenen Motiven und Musterungen für verschiedene Arten kunstgewerblicher Verwendung, als Lehrbehelf für Schulen, gewerbliche Fachkurse u. Ateliers. Brünn, Druck u. Verlag Photo-Kunst- u. Lichtdruckindustrie, ca. 1910. 1 ill. Titelblatt, 24 (z. T. handkolorierte) Tafeln (Format je 44,8 x 31,8 cm), ill. OHLn.-Mappe, Sehr seltene Jugendstil-Mappe! Ausserdem werden vereinzelt Textilien mit seinem Design oder einzelne Blätter dieser bekannten Mappe angeboten: Little information seems to be known or is available, concerning the German designer Alois Bohla. That he produced a number of textile designs that were put into production is known. He also produced a range of instructional drawings based on Art Nouveau floral motifs. These are now somewhat rare and not readily available online. However, a web link is given in the Reference links section below, where some of the colour work produced by Bohla can be both seen and purchased. The four textile patterns shown in this article were meant to be produced as tablecloth designs. The first two were published in 1905, while the latter two are slightly later and were published in 1911. All four designs were purchased by the Austrian textile manufacturers Norbert Langer und Sohne for eventual release as tablecloth covers. Interestingly, the first two from 1905 were part of a competition organised by Norbert Langer und Sohne, the winners of which were published in the German magazine Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration. Prof. Alois Bohla, Jugendstilmappe um 1910 "Neue Motive für moderne Flächenverzierung - Studien nach der Natur mit daraus gewonnenen Motiven und Musterungen und Andeutungen geschmackvoller Farbenwahl - Moderne Anregungen für Schulen und verschiedene Arten gewerblicher Verwendung - Herausgegeben von Professor Al.

        Bolschaja (Bolshaya, Bolshaja, Bol'shaja) Sovetskaja (Sovjetskaja, Sovietskaya, Sowjetskaja) Enziclojedija (Enciklopedia, Enziclopediya). Große Sowjetische Enzyklopädie, 2. Ausgabe, 50 + 1 + 2 Bände, 1949 - 1958.

      Moskau 1949 - 1958. Zweite Auflage dieser monumentalen, gleichsam "amtlichen" Sowjet-Enzyklopädie. Bereits kurz nach Vollendung der ersten Ausgabe, deren Erscheinen sich über einen Zeitraum von 21 Jahren (1946 - 1947) erstreckt hatte, erließ der Ministerrat der UdSSR 1949 die Weisung zur Erstellung einer Neuauflage, die zwischen 1949 und 1958 in 50 Textbänden, einem Ergänzungsband und zwei Registerbänden erschien. Insgesamt waren ca. 16.000 Wissenschaftler an der redaktionellen Herstellung des Werkes beteiligt, die unmittelbar dem Ministerrat unterstellt waren. Läßt das Werk einerseits in toto eine gewisse Versachlichung und wissenschaftliche Verselbständigung gegenüber der Erstausgabe erkennen, so machten sich doch andererseits die ideologischen Einflüsse und Richtungsänderungen der Stalin- und Nach-Stalin-Ära bis in Detailfragen hinein bemerkbar. Dies läßt sich exemplarisch anhand des Artikels über den vormaligen Geheimdienstchef Berija verdeutlichen. Nachdem dieser 1953 entmachtet und hingerichtet worden war, erhielten alle Subskribenten die schriftliche Aufforderung, die betreffenden Seiten herauszutrennen und durch mitgeschickte Artikel über die Beringstraße und einen weitgehend unbekannten Politiker des 18. Jahrhunderts namens Bertholtz zu ersetzen. Die Bände (seitlich) mit Resten von Bibliotheksschildern (der Universität Gießen), einige seitliche Flächen etwas klebend. Ein Kapital etwas angestoßen. Sonst die gesamte Ausgabe in sehr gutem, unversehrtem Zustand. Seiten sauber und fleckenfrei. Gutes Exemplar dieser monumentalen Sowjet-Enzyklopädie. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).

        Radogoszcz [INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR]

      Lodz: "Czytaj", 1949. First edition. Softcover. fair to vg. Octavo (8 x 5 3/4"). 152pp. Original photo-illustrated wrappers. Half-title inscribed by the author, and dated 1957. Publisher's logo on title page. &#11;&#11;Written by Maria Nowacka, prosecutor of the district court, this work is a detailed history of Radogoszcz, the Nazi Police Prison from 1939 to 1945. &#11;&#11;Located in the Polish town of Lodz, Radogoszcz was used as a Nazi Police Prison from November 1939 to January 1945, when it was set on fire. It was used to house prisoners for the many German groups such as the Gestapo, SS, and newly formed local Police. The first murders of Radogoszcz prisoners took place soon after it was opened, when Polish intelligentsia (who had been arrested earlier) were taken from the prison and murdered in local woods, probably as part of the Intelligenzaktion (see Intelligenzaktion Litzmannstadt and Intelligenzaktion Burgerbraukeller). This took place in November 1939. As the factory was never intended for habitation, a local charity was formed to build simple kitchens and baths. The charity was prevented from aiding the prisoners after January 1940. A number of prominent Polish-German factory owners were on this committee. &#11;&#11;The prison originally housed all types of prisoners including Jews. After a ransom of 150 marks per prisoner was paid, all Jewish prisoners were moved to the Lodz Ghetto. The crime of these prisoners was mostly to be unable to buy their freedom when they were randomly arrested. After January 1940 it exclusively housed male prisoners. Prior to that, it had been used as a transit camp for Poles being deported to the General Government area. Afterward it was populated by prisoners transferred from a prison at 55 Krakowska street. &#11;&#11;In July 1940, once all transit prisoners had been moved, the prison came under the exclusive authority of the local police. By this time some 500 of the 2000 prisoners had been executed. The prison was mainly staffed by Local Poles of German descent who had signed the list to be declared Volksdeutsche. The prison was used for short- and long-term detention. Some prisoners were later sent to slave labour camps and concentration camps. In total, over 40,000 people passed through the gates of the prison. Nobody knows how many died.&#11;&#11;This work is illustrated with 19 pages of b/w photographic reproductions and illustrations, including a plan of the facility.&#11;&#11;Head of spine chipped. Wrappers sunned, with upper front corner creased, and lower back corner chipped. Previous owner's stamp on inside of half-title. Pages slightly and evenly age-toned throughout. Text in Polish. Wrappers in overall fair to good-, interior in good to very good condition.

        Rare signed music contract from the vaults of Hometown-Village Music

      New York, 1949. unbound. 1 page, 11 x 8.5 inches, Hometown Village Music, 1619 Broadway, New York City, July 29, 1949, whereby Fred Wise and fellow Hall-of-Fame songwriters Al Frisch and Sid Prosen agree to assign their composition titled "The Longer We're Together" to the Robert Music Corporation, with the understanding that they will abide by the regulations set forth by the SPA. All three have boldly signed this contract (in full) under the caption: "We are the composers." Fred Wise and Al Frisch were a successful songwriting team in the 1940s and early 1950s. Despite their immense success, they are both virtually unobtainable in autographic material. Boldly signed, natural folds, very good condition. American Hall-of-Fame songwriter who wrote top hits for Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Tony Bennett, and other big names before becoming one of the most prolific songwriters for Elvis Presley. He contributed heavily to Presley's movie soundtracks and provided over 30 songs used in "King Creole," "Wild in the Country," "Follow that Dream," "Kid Galahad," "This is Living," "Fun in Acapulco," "Kissin' Cousins," and "Roustabout." He also wrote the song "Wooden Heart" which Elvis sang in the film "G.I. Blues." Wise, a longtime sufferer of depression, is sadly remembered for committing suicide at the kitchen table of his home in front of his wife and children. He was 50 years old.
