      The Viking Press, New York 1949 - New York: The Viking Press, 1949. First edition. Signed by the author on the title page. Book near fine on account of a previous owner's name written on the first blank, otherwise a lovely copy. With the correct date ("1949") on the title page, although the type is breaking on the final "9". In a near fine, price-clipped dust jacket, with the spine a trifle faded and light wear at the spine ends and corners. In all, a very presentable copy of a book that is relatively uncommon in anything approaching fine condition. Arthur Miller's 1949 play - one of the towering classics of the American stage. "Death of a Salesman" follows the trials of Willy Loman, the quintessential American tragic hero. The play won a Tony Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and the New York Drama Circle Critics' Award, becoming the first play to win all three prizes. It was also adapted into a 1951 film directed by Stanley Roberts. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Archive of over 200 original inter-negatives from the Cleveland, Ohio Telenews Theater

      N.p., Cleveland, OH 1949 - Archive of 204 black and white 4 x 5 inch inter-negatives from the Cleveland, Ohio branch of the Hearst-owned Telenews theater chain, dating from 1944 to 1949 and including images of some eventful days during the course of World War II, such as Victory Over Japan Day, August 14, 1945. The Telenews theatres were devoted exclusively to non-stop screening of newsreel footage before the advent of television, and the images in this archive feature rare insight into one such theater's function and purpose during the height of World War II, including its exhibitions, radio lounges, and architectural design.One of the first iterations of a trend that would later foster the 24-hour news cycle, desire for the increased and up-to-date news coverage featured at Telenews theaters was brought about in no small part by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and subsequent US involvement in World War II. Telenews theaters featured a single screen that played all-newsreel content, an in-house radio station that played to a seated audience and was simultaneously broadcasted to a separate listening lounge, and a teletype ticker in the lobby bringing in the latest news updates. This diverse range of formats also allowed the Telenews theaters to keep up with an increasing demand for visual content in an era of rapidly changing technology.Cleveland's Telenews theater opened in February of 1941, having been designed by local architect George Howard Burrows, who was better known for his designs of suburban houses in the Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights areas. By 1950 the theater had changed hands, operating as the Coronet and screening art films. The theatre was finally bought by the Hippodrome chain and renamed the Tower, showcasing second run films until it closed in February 1954.The photographs in the archive highlight Cleveland's role as an epicenter for industrial manufacture during World War II, with photographs of Telenews lobby exhibitions featuring Ohio crankshafts used in war vehicles, Rayon thread and fabric being used in tires, train and life boat exhibitions, and images of Uncle Sam posters seeking recruitment for skilled labor work. The collection also contains inter-negatives showing large crowds at the theater for such events as the surrender of Japan on August 14, 1945, trials of German officers, footage of German atrocities, and live incoming election results for the 1944 presidential election between Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Thomas E. Dewey, in which the popular incumbent would win his fourth term only to die within six months of the successful run.From the estate of the Cleveland Telenews theater manager Frank J. Koza, who would later go on to become a professional news cameraman, and likely the author of the photographs as well.Most inter-negatives approximately 4 x 5 inches. Very Good plus to Near Fine. Shipping to be billed at cost.

         [Planisphère nautique manuscrit].

      Octobre 1949. 1,26 x 1,60 m, sur quatre peaux de vélin jointes, marouflées sur toile et montées sur un châssis en bois. Grande et belle carte manuscrite, encre noire et gouache, très colorée, représentant un planisphère (sans l'Asie orientale) tel qu'on le représentait au XVIème siècle, date des premiers grands voyages d'exploration. C'est une copie assez fidèle de la plus grande partie du planisphère nautique manuscrit de Pierre Desceliers de 1546, conservé à la bibliothèque de l'université John Rylands à Manchester. Ce cartographe normand, membre de l'école de cartographie de Dieppe, et considéré comme le père de l'hydrographie française, a réalisé plusieurs grands portulans manuscrits grâce aux renseignements qu'il tenait des explorateurs dieppois et de l'armateur Jean Ango. Ce sont des cartes nautiques montrant les contours des continents, accompagnées de nombreuses mentions manuscrites et illustrées de scènes ethnographiques issues de l'expérience des voyageurs européens, ainsi que de représentations d'animaux fantastiques et d'êtres mythologiques. De la carte de Desceliers, l'auteur en a respecté l'orthographe, l'encadrement aux armes du Dauphin auquel la carte est dédiée, et les grands rhumbs, roses des vents, monstres marins et navires qui ornent les mers, et, tout en lui donnant un aspect beaucoup plus coloré, il s'est attaché à reproduire les nombreuses scènes pittoresques et animaux fabuleux qui illustrent les continents.

La dernière lettre, du 21 septembre 1948, de Tours, clinique Saint-Gatien, est l'ultime adressée à André Chagny, deux semaines avant son décès : Benjamin lui fait fait part de l'immense souffrance physique qu'il est en train d'endurer. Ecrivain, journaliste et conférencier, René Benjamin reçut le Prix Goncourt en 1915 pour son roman «Gaspard» qu'il écrivit à l'hôpital de Tours alors qu'il avait été grièvement blessé dès le mois de septembre 1914. Membre de l'académie Goncourt depuis 1938, ami de Maurras et de Léon Daudet, il soutint le Maréchal Pétain pendant l'occupation allemande et eut quelques ennuis à la Libération, étant en résidence surveillée à Paris, son procès n'eut pas lieu et le dossier étant vide, le juge d'instruction conclut à un non-lieu. Benjamin a laissé quelques ouvrages majeurs comme son Balzac et son Molière. En fin d'ouvrage, nous assistons à une magistrale critique de Sacha Guitry, lui aussi membre de l'académie Goncourt et qui en démissionna à cette occasion. Bel exemplaire.

      Paris Henri Lefèbvre 1949in-8, broché, couverture rempliée, 124 pp. Edition originale illustrée d'une photographie en frontispice et de 12 lithographies hors-texte par Goor. Tirage limité à 1112 exemplaires, celui-ci numéroté sur vélin de Lana avec un bel envoi de l'auteur à Gabriel Matzneff, "ce rayon de lumière sous une époque sombre". L'ouvrage évoque l'oeuvre de charité au profit des orphelins de guerre dans laquelle Montherlant s'impliqua entre 1942 et 1945. L'illustration très suggestive de Goor se plaît à souligner le charme troublant de ces adolescents livrés à eux-mêmes. Très belle provenance, le premier texte imprimé en volume de Matzneff ayant paru seulement en 1959, au sein d'un volume collectif intitulé "Montherlant vu par des jeunes de 17 à 27 ans".

        Portrait of Jennie (Screenplay archive of 10 documents, including scripts and supporting documentation)

      Selznick International Pictures / Vanguard Films, Los Angeles 1949 - An archive of 10 scripts and supporting materials for the 1948 film, "Portrait of Jennie," directed by William Dieterle, based on the 1940 novel by Robert Nathan, written for the screen by Peter Berneis, Leonardo Bercovici, and Paul Osborn, and starring Joseph Cotten, Jennifer Jones, Ethel Barrymore, and Lillian Gish. Painstakingly developed by Selznick International and then released under the auspices of Vanguard Pictures (to whom Selznick International was sold),"Portrait of Jennie" is a romantic fantasy so strange and concept-driven that it has always eluded mass popularity. Joseph Cotten portrays a struggling artist who becomes enamored with a little girl named Jennie who inexplicably begins to grow to womanhood over a period of weeks. The archive includes 9 documents related to the film, 6 of which are pre-production, and 4 post-production:Synopsis by Paul MacNamara.

        Ande patagoniche: viaggi di esplorazione alla cordigliera patagonica australe.

L'autore nato a Pollone (oggi in Provincia di Biella) il 2 novembre 1883 da Lorenzo e Caterina Antoniotti; il fratello maggiore Giovanni fondò l'Istituto Geografico De Agostini di Novara. Entrato in seminario giovanissimo nel 1909 venne ordinato sacerdote salesiano. Scelse di diventare missionario nelle zone meridionali dell'Argentina e del Cile dove i salesiani fin dal 1875 operavano a favore degli ultimi indios delle etnie Alakaluf Ona e Yamana. Le condizioni di vita della popolazione indigena erano pessime ed il suo numero si era di molto ridotto per le malattie e le violenze legate allo sfruttamento della zona da parte di grandi allevamenti di ovini e bovini rivolti all'economia di mercato. Arrivato in Sud America nel 1910 padre De Agostini tra il 1912 e il 1945 affiancò alla propria attività pastorale una nutrita serie di viaggi esplorativi in Patagonia meridionale e nella Terra del Fuoco avendo come base logistica Punta Arenas sulla costa settentrionale dello Stretto di Magellano. La Cordillera Darwin e il Ghiacciaio Marinelli nel parco nazionale cileno intitolato ad Alberto De Agostini. Dopo una lunga parentesi dedicata all'elaborazione dei materiali raccolti ed all'attività strettamente pastorale ritornò all'esplorazione e nel 1955 organizzò un'importante spedizione che portò alla conquista (da parte di Carlo Mauri e Clemente Maffei) del Monte Sarmiento. Nel 1957 collaborò poi con la spedizione diretta da Guido Monzino che realizzò la prima salita del Cerro Paine una delle più importanti cime delle Ande patagoniche. Tornato in Italia morì a Torino nel giorno di Natale del 1960 presso la casa madre dei salesiani. Il Cile gli ha dedicato un grande parco nazionale nella Terra del Fuoco e il nome di un fiordo lungo 35 km. ll frutto più noto dell'attività esplorativa di padre De Agostini furono varie opere divulgative nelle quali raccontò con efficaci UsatoBuono Anno pubblicazione: 1949. 23 ...

Interesting Thomas Mann correspondence and ephemera archive compiled by Doris Dana, the long-time companion of poet, educator, feminist, Nobel laureate and Chilean diplomat Gabriela Mistral (i. e., Lucila de María del Perpetuo Socorro Godoy Alcayaga, 1889-1957), several of whose poems Dana translated and edited. The present collection documents the friendship which Dana entertained with the Mann family in the late 1940s, frequently touching upon her friendship with Gabriela Mistral. In the first correspondence document, written on August 27, 1946, Thomas Mann thanks "Miss Dana" for her "touching letter of August 15th" (not preserved here) and for the "hours we spent with you. - Particularly, I want to express to you, though belatedly, my appreciation of the excellent English translation of the article by Gabriela Mistral. I was deeply moved and surprised about the truly generous warm-heartedness with which this woman comments on my work and existence. Strangely enough: nowadays it is not seldom that people write about me in this tone and style to which I formerly was hardly used. It proves that one only has to persist long enough and people will begin to realize what one means to them." In an autograph letter written two days later, Katia Mann adds her thanks for a set of César Franck records, as well as for "the lovely little Mexican box which arrived two days ago" (receipt included in ephemera coll.). A few months later, Dana sends the Manns an album of Carol Bruce singing Gustav Mahler's "Songs of a Wayfarer" (letter dated. Oct. 16, 1946) and comments on the War Department's plans to translate and reprint her story, "My Soul To Take", in the "'Neue Auslese', a magazine published in Germany and circulated through all four zones of Germany, and Austria, as part of the reeducation program for the occupied areas [.] It is an immense satisfaction and privilege for me to be given a hearing in this way [.] - particularly since it stresses for me the functional aspect of writing [.] Thank you particularly for your appreciation of the article by Gabriela Mistral. To translate such an article was a privilege for me [.], and also a vicarious way of expressing my own feeling on your existence, your work and the things you represent." Mann answered on Nov. 1: "It is amazing that Mahler's musical personality is so completely expressed in these early compositions. The reproduction is excellent, and even the German pronunciation of the singer leaves hardly anything to desire [.] I am working hard on my novel [i. e, Doktor Faustus] which, if I stay well, I hope to finish in [Attributes: Soft Cover]
