        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.

        gedanken und farbe. erzählt / geformt. [Manuskript].

      16 x 15 cm. 45 unpaginierte Blatt. Leinenmape mit Farbflächen in Öl handbemalt. Papierbedingt gebräunt, teils etwas brüchig. Von Herkunft und Alter her gut und sauber erhalten. Buchmanuskript mit Text und Bildmontagen. Enthält einen mittels montierter Fotos von Werken gegebenen Überblick zum Werk Streubels ab etwa 1949 bis 1960 sowie Gedichte und Texte. Die Anordnung muss in der vorliegenden Form nicht stimmen, da die Blätter, meist in Doppelbögen, nicht nummeriert sind und sich nur durch Datierungen der Bilder erschließen. Die Texte wirken in ihrer Stilistik fragmentarisch und sind daher schwer zusammen zu führen, wie überhaupt die Diktion Streubels sehr dadaistisch - surreal anmutet. An Expressionismus und Bauhaus geschult sind die wiedergegebenen Arbeiten meist figürlich expressiv oder geometrisch abstrakt. Neben dem Buchmanuskript liegt ein Textmanuskript von 3 Blatt DIN A4 vor - "Der Redner" . Ferner dabei zwei handschriftliche und ein maschinenschriftlicher Brief (dieser vom 18.2.1962 bezieht sich auf das Buchmanuskript, das Streubel einem befreundeten Sammler in Düsseldorf hat zukommen lassen, wohl auch um es aus der DDR zu bringen). Dabei ferner ein Weihnachts- und Neujahrsgruß, handschriftlich auf Klappkarte mit einer voll ausgeführten abstrakten Gouache auf der Innenseite. Zusammen in Papp-Kassette. Kurt W. Streubel, geboren 1921 in Starkstadt / Böhmen, gestorben 2002 in Weimar. Nach Wehrdienst und Kriegsgefangenschaft nahm Streubel 1946 ein Studiums an der Staatlichen Hochschule für Baukunst und bildende Kunst Weimar bei Hanns Hoffmann-Lederer, später bei Albert Schaefer-Ast auf. Er lebte seit 1945 überwiegend in Gotha. Streubel fiel auf Grund seiner Haltung und seiner abstrakt - konstruktiven Malgeste dem Formalismusvorwurf der verantwortlichen Kulturhüter der DDR zum Opfer (er hatte eine umfangreiche Stasi-Akte) und wurde gesellschaftlich ausgegrenzt. Er operierte im Geheimen und fand in dem Komponisten Siegfried Geissler einen Gönner und Mäzen, der auch seine "antioper" komponierte (1970), die aber nie zur Aufführung gelangte. Gelegentlich gelangten Bilder Streubels auf den Sekundärmarkt, Ausstellungsbeteiligungen waren rar, seine teils dadaistisch anmutenden Gedichte und Texte fanden bislang ebenfalls nur wenig Beachtung - Grund genug, sich dem widerspenstigen und unbequemen Künstler zu nähern.

        The Sheltering Sky (With The Scarce Promotional Band)

      A First Printing published by John Lehmann in 1949. The BOOK is in VERY GOOD + condition. It shows signs of edge-wear and rubbing. The boards are bumped at the corners and the spine ends are mildly pushed. The spine is a little cocked. There is some fading of colour to the lower spine and less so to the upper spine. The text block is spotted and lightly encroaches on to the page margins in places , the fly papers and first few leaves. This post war production was renowned for using cheap quality paper and it is inevitable that there is the presence of some spotting. The WRAPPER is complete and is in near FINE condition. The rear panel is only lightly marked and spotted. The wrapper has benefitted from some expert professional restoration to the spine ends and upper rear cover edge - This is not noticeable from the front and in fact the restoration appears seamless. The white panels on the spine are only mildly toned. All in all a very attractive wrapper with the Fred Uhlman design looking striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. The very scarce 'Evening Standard Book Of The Month' Promotional Band is also present and is complete. It is in near Fine condition. One of only 4,000 copies printed. Bowles' epic first novel, a keystone of Beat literature, in its sought-after original British publication. Named by Time magazine as one of the 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923-2005. Extremely scarce to find in such collectible condition.

        10 Photographs

      1949 - STETTNER, Louis. 10 Photographs". Introduction by Brassaï. Paris and New York: Two Cities Publications, (1949). Slim folio, six loose sheets and ten duotone plates in original heavy tan wrappers. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $4500.Limited first edition, number 30 of only 265 copies, of this revealing selection of ten Paris and New York street images by Brooklyn-born Louis Stettner"""consummate street photographer in the Cartier-Bresson tradition."Praised by Brassaï as a photographer who reveals the world "with utmost accuracy and the simplicity of great art" (Early Joys), Brooklyn-born Louis Stettner is "a consummate street photographer in the Cartier-Bresson, Atget and, well, Weegee tradition" (New York Times). This impressive group of ten Stettner duotones provides memorable views of empty Paris street corners juxtaposed with high-contrast portraits of individuals on the street. As a realist, Stettner "renounces his personality, his "˜I' with its little fads and immense pretensions. Henceforth he will live under the authority of reality and will dedicate his existence to the cult of its images." Text by Brassaï in French and English translation. Plates fine, original wrappers and loose sheets with expert repairs to folds. A near-fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      The Macmillan Company, New York 1949 - Tenth printing of Michener's first book, winner of the Pulitzer Prize. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author to the actor who created the role of Capt. George Brackett in the original Rodgers and Hammerstein Broadway musical: "To Martin Wolfson,/In a character that does/not appear in this book, you/catch the precise & wonderful/spirit of what I was trying to/do. I have been deeply impressed/by your art & your sympathetic/understanding. It's been great/fun knowing you & watching your/performances./Your admirer, /James A. Michener." Michener's inscription takes up most of the front endpaper, but just above it is another inscription to Wolfson that we surmise is by the actor William Tabbert who played Lieutenant Joe Cable in the original production and who shared several scenes with Wolfson: "To Martin/In appreciation of his/splendid performance which/added much strength and/reality to the whole production/from his friend/Bill." SOUTH PACIFIC, the musical, won its own Pulitzer Prize, a New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and nine Tony Awards. Its memorable hits include "Some Enchanted Evening," "Bali Ha'I,"There is Nothing Like a Dame," "I'm in Love With a Wonderful Guy," and "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair." It is rare to find copies of this book inscribed by Michener to original cast members of this historic American musical. Some light spotting to the cloth.

Octavo, original dark blue cloth, original dust jacket. $2000.First edition of Capote's first volume of short prose, inscribed on the title page by him, "With good wishes, Truman Capote 2/52."This important first collection was paramount in establishing Capote's "place among important 20th-century American short story writers". Tree of Night contains most of Capote's best stories" (Werlock, Companion to Literature, 119). In a 1957 interview, when asked what he thought of his early prose, he immediately singled out three stories from Tree of Night, saying: "I prefer Children on Their Birthdays and Shut a Final Door and". Master Misery" (Paris Review). To noted author Reynolds Price, "only Chekhov comes to mind" in equaling the "sheer clarity of Capote's prose and a brilliant economy of ongoing narrative rhythm" (Introduction, Complete Stories, xiii). This core volume, published soon after his first novel, Other Voices, Other Rooms (1948), includes the title story, Master Misery, Children on Their Birthdays, Jug of Silver, The Headless Hawk and My Side of the Matter, along with Miriam and Shut a Final Door, both of which won O.

WITH: Ten leaves of facsimile (8-1/2 by 11 inches) loose. Together housed in a custom folding chemise and slipcase. $8000.November 4, 1949 autograph letter signed by Steinbeck to film producer Daryl Zanuck, reporting Steinbeck's optimism at the progress of his original screenplay for the film Viva Zapata!, Steinbeck's letter in this rare collection with a May 16, 1951 original final shooting screenplay for the film, which premiered in 1952 starring Marlon Brando and directed by Elia Kazan, with Steinbeck's Oscar-nominated script hailed as a "towering achievement". unquestionably his finest work in the genre," housed together with ten loose leaves of facsimile documenting Steinbeck's legal contracts on the film with Twentieth Century-Fox Film, in a handsome custom folding chemise and half morocco slipcase."Steinbeck's towering achievement in film is most embodied by Viva Zapata!, a film Robert Morseberger regards as 'unquestionably his finest work in the genre". When Viva Zapata! finally appeared on the screen in 1952, it was the culmination not only of 20 years of study, but also Steinbeck's apprenticeship in writing for Hollywood".Unlike F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner or Ernest Hemingway". Steinbeck had great successes on the big screen". Over the course of his career, Steinbeck was three times nominated for the screenwriting Academy Award, while his films, more generally, garnered 25 Academy Award nominations, ultimately winning four". On the film's release, with Marlon Brando in the lead, Viva Zapata! electrified audiences. It earned Steinbeck an Academy Award nomination for best story and screenplay; Marlon Brando earned an Oscar nomination for best actor, while Anthony Quinn actually won the Oscar for best supporting actor. Indeed, Morseberger ranks Viva Zapata! as one of the four 'most memorable films". placing it in the elite company of High Noon, Singin' in the Rain, and The Quiet Man" (Price, "Champion of the Common Man," in Bloom, John Steinbeck, 47-48). The very scarce autograph letter in this collection, entirely in Steinbeck's hand, is dated three years before the film's 1952 premiere and many years after he began work on the screenplay. The letter""included with the "shooting final" screenplay of Viva Zapata! in the original wrappers of Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation""captures his near elation at this turning point in the project that consumed so many years of his life. Steinbeck, who "had been reading about Emiliano Zapata since the early 1930s," here writes Fox producer Daryl Zanuck with evident relief about his screenplay (Railsback and Meyer, 411). The letter is on a single leaf of onionskin personal letterhead with his Pacific Grove address: "John Steinbeck, 147 Eleventh Street, Pacific Grove, California." It reads: "November 4, 49, Dear Daryl: It was a brilliant thing to send me Jules Buck. He is a hell of a man. We work well together, are going very fast and I think a good script is coming out of it. I am extremely pleased. Just a note, John Steinbeck." Together with Steinbeck's letter and the screenplay are ten loose facsimile leaves, the file copies of legal agreements between Steinbeck and Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation, including a four-page, "Modification Agreement" dated "November 23, 1949" and a six-page "Assignment," with the date of "February 5, 1951."

      1949 - HEMINGWAY, Ernest. Ardievas Ierociem (Farewell to Arms). (Örebro, Sweden): Parnass, (1949). Octavo, original paper wrappers, uncut and unopened. $3500.First Latvian edition of A Farewell to Arms, Hemingway's own copy, warmly and humorously inscribed on the half title, "For Fraser Bragg Drew, from his friend Ernest Hemingway (Read this for home-work) EH."Hemingway inscribed this volume to his friend Professor Fraser Drew. As a young teacher, Drew wrote a letter to which Hemingway responded with uncharacteristic kindness, signing six of Drew's books and presenting him with six more "as an act of contrition" for taking so long to return the books. Hemingway then invited Drew to visit, and on April 8, 1955, one year after Hemingway won the Nobel Prize, they spent a long afternoon discussing literature, later recounted by Drew in his article "Unedited Notes on a Visit to Finca Vigia" (in Bruccoli, Conversations With Ernest Hemingway, 89-98). At the end of Drew's visit Hemingway said "Let's go up to the house and sign those books of yours." Hemingway inscribed all the books Drew had brought with him and presented him with many others from his own collection, many of which were foreign translations; this volume is undoubtedly from that visit. A Farewell to Arms first published in 1929; this first Latvian edition was translated by Dzintars Sodums. Grissom, 714. Bookplate of Fraser Drew.Interior fine, only light wear to paper wrappers.

      1949 - WEIZMANN, Chaim. Typed letter signed. [Jerusalem]: March 19, 1949. Original letter, one leaf of presidential stationary, measuring 6-1/2 by 9 inches, typewritten on recto. $9000.Extraordinary letter typewritten in Hebrew and signed by Israel's first president, Chaim Weizmann. Written and signed in Hebrew.The letter, written in Hebrew on the official stationery of the president of Israel, reads: "State of Israel. Office of the President. 18 Adar 5709. March 19, 1949. Dr. Chaim Weizmann. [To] Member of Knesset Dr. Zerah Wahrhaftig. Tel Aviv. Dear Member of Knesset. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your best wishes. The Zionist Organization and the People of Israel have blessed me with a high and lofty position and a great honor. This honor, though, is a weighty one at my age and in view of the state of my health. I pray in my heart that I may be worthy of the position, and that history will keep me from any quarrels and internal strife, which, most unfortunately, are frequent in postwar countries. With great appreciation, [signed] Chaim Weizmann. President of Israel. Copy: Secretariat of the Knesset."Chaim Weizmann's importance in bringing about the establishment of the state of Israel cannot be overestimated. He was one of Israel's most important statesmen, having used his skills in diplomacy to convince British Prime Minister Balfour of the importance of Palestine as a Jewish homeland, which resulted in the Balfour Declaration. "The Declaration, which was Weizmann's primary achievement, was a turning point in modern Jewish history. The idea of restoring Jewish political nationhood had passed from fantasy into the world of politics. A leading diplomatic historian has described Weizmann's role as "˜the greatest act of diplomatic statesmanship of the First World War". The spectacular nature of his achievement had made him the central figure in the public life of the Jewish people; he was recognized as such by Jews and non-Jews alike. His position in international life even conveyed a premonition of Jewish sovereignty. Heads of state, ministers, and high officials, behaved toward him as though he were already president of a sovereign nation equal in status to their own. He and they knew that this was not strictly true; but something in his presence and in their own historic imagination forbade them to break the spell." In addition, "President Truman, in direct response to Weizmann's letter, had authorized the recognition of Israel by the United States," immediately after it had declared its independence on May 14, 1948, ensuring that many others in the United Nations would do so. Due to these, and numerous other diplomatic achievements on behalf of Israel, "in February 1949, the first elected parliament of Israel, meeting specially in Jerusalem, elevated Weizmann from the presidency of the Provisional State Council to the title of president of the State of Israel." (Encyclopedia Judaica). Weizmann official assumed office on February 17, 1949. This letter, composed scarcely one month later, was printed so soon after the founding of the state of Israel that the official stationery lacks the familiar official emblem of the state of Israel (a menorah and olive branches) that would adorn all later stationery. Unfortunately, the concerns about his health that Weizmann voices in this letter would prove to be well-founded; he passed away in 1952, before the completion of his term of office. Weizmann wrote this letter to one of the Knesset's most distinguished statesmen and intellectuals. Legal and religious scholar Rabbi Dr. Zerah Wahrhaftig emigrated to Israel in 1947, and very quickly became a political leader. He was one of the original signers of the Israeli Declaration of Independence, served in the Knesset from the founding of the State of Israel until 1981, served as Minister of Religions in the Prime Minister's cabinet, led the National Religious Party, was a lecturer at Hebrew University, and helped to found Bar Il [Attributes: Signed Copy]
