        NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR

      London : Secker and Warburg. 1949. First edition, first printing. First edition, first printing. Original green cloth with red titles to the spine, in the maroon dustwrapper. Purple top-stain. An excellent near fine copy, the binding clean with a slight lean. The contents are very clean throughout and without previous owner?s inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the unfaded maroon dustwrapper which is a little rubbed and nicked with a few short closed tears to the extremities and a small blemish to the spine. Not price-clipped (correctly priced 10s net to the front flap). A very attractive example, without repair or restoration, of a notoriously fragile book. The first printing of Nineteen Eighty-Four was published on 8th June 1949 and issued in two states of dustwrapper. Both are identical in all but the background colour of the upper panel and spine, one being green, the other maroon. Although no precedence has been established, the maroon is scarcer and considered more desirable, but being exceptionally prone to fading bright examples, as here, are of undoubted rarity.

        C'est à St - Paul de Vence

      Paris, La Nouvelle édition, 1949. in - 8 carré de 94 et (2) pages exemplaire broché, couverture illustrée en couleurs 1949, 1949, , in - 8 carré de 94 et (2) pages, exemplaire broché, couverture illustrée en couleurs, Edition originale avec un envoi autographe de Prévert à Paul Grimault, "pour Paul Grimault", enrichi d'un cœur tracé au feutre noir et colorié en rouge. Touchant envoi de Prévert à son ami Paul Grimault alors que les deux artistes sont en pleine réalisation de la première version du futur "Le Roi et l'Oiseau" (1980), La Bergère et le Ramoneur (1950) d'après un conte éponyme d'Andersen. Grimault, pour les dessins, et Prévert, pour le texte, travaillèrent près de 4 ans (1946 - 1950) à la réalisation de ce film d'animation. Primé en 1951 à la XIIIe biennale de Venise, le film sera commercialisé en 1953. Les auteurs furent mécontents du montage imposé par la production. Ainsi, en 1967, Grimault récupéra les droits de l'œuvre et les négatifs du film, réécrit quelques scènes et remonta le film sous le nom de "Le Roi et l'Oiseau"

        Wittgenstein's proof copy of: Ludwig Hänsel, "Newton - Goethe - Pascal. Die Farbenlehre und das Problem der Mitte" (a treatise on Goethe's "Theory of colours").

      [Vienna, 1949]. - Offprint from: "Chronik des Wiener Goethe-Vereins", vols. LII and LIII. Pages 113-146. Original wrappers (spine defective, cover with multiple creases). Wittgenstein's proof copy of Hänsel's essay on Goethe's "Farbenlehre" with his autogr. (often scathing) annotations: "If you only would shut up and keep out of it!" (p. 122), "You are not Goethe" (p. 124), "Christian peoples are not Christianity" (p. 145). - Wittgenstein and Hänsel had met in the POW camp at Monte Cassino. Wittgenstein visited Vienna during Easter 1949, and Hänsel gave him the offprint to read. "The friendship between Wittgenstein and Hänsel had then lasted three decades, and during this time Wittgenstein uttered many a brusque word about Hänsel's ideas. To be sure, the aggressive, vicious tone is irritating" (cf. Christian Paul Berger, in: "L. Hänsel - L. Wittgenstein. Eine Freundschaft", Innsbruck [1994], p. 339). - "Hänsel was an uncommonly well-read man; above all, he appreciated Pascal, St. Augustine, Kierkegaard, and Goethe, about whom he wrote numerous essays. He studied modern issues of Christianity and the church, the philosophy of values, epistemology, and basic questions of education. Hänsel was considered a conservative: like Wittgenstein, he favoured 'tradition' in matters of literature, art, music, and 'the modern life' in general. For Wittgenstein, Hänsel embodied both the classical Austrian tradition and the faculty to perform an observant examination of current trends in culture and criticism. Harshly though Wittgenstein chastises Hänsel, his letters repeatedly end with his criticising the failures attributed to his friend even more sharply in himself" (cf. Ilse Somavilla, Der rechte Ton, in: ibid., p. 325). - Numerous pencil marginalia, underlinings, deletions and corrections by Wittgenstein. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Männliches Portrait, in Original Pastell-Kreide hinter Passepartout,

      (1949). 1949 - Sehr schönes signiertes Exemplar. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger (* 30. Juni 1892 in Buchen im Odenwald; † 12. April 1966 in Karlsruhe) war ein deutscher Maler. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger zählt zu den Vertretern der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Er ist der Sohn eines Gymnasialprofessors und machte 1911 sein Abitur. Von 1911 bis 1915 besuchte er die Königliche Kunstgewerbeschule München und studierte parallel in München Architektur. Ab 1913 war er Schüler des Gebrauchsgrafikers Fritz Helmuth Ehmcke und ein Freund von Karl Rössing. 1918 wurde er zum Dienst im Ersten Weltkrieg eingezogen. Er war 1919 für die Zeitschrift Der Weg und ab 1920 für die Zeitschriften Wieland und Simplicissimus tätig. Schnarrenberger unterrichtete von 1921 bis 1933 an der Badischen Landeskunstschule. 1924 war er Gründungsmitglied der ORNA-Werkstätten für Werbung und Innendekoration. Unter den Nationalsozialisten war seine Kunst verpönt und wurde 1937 als entartet gebrandmarkt und verboten, nachdem er bereits seit 1933 nicht mehr unterrichten durfte. 1933 übersiedelte er mit seiner Familie nach Berlin, wo er versuchte, als freischaffender Gebrauchsgrafiker seinen Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen. Den bevorstehenden Krieg voraussehend zog er 1938 nach Lenzkirch im Schwarzwald, wo er zusammen mit seiner Frau Melitta (1909-1996) eine kleine Ferienpension eröffnete. Hier entdeckte er das für sein späteres Werk so wichtige Thema des Stilllebens. 1947 wurde er zum Professor an die Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe berufen. 1962 erhielt er für sein künstlerisches Werk den Hans-Thoma-Staatspreis. Schnarrenberger legte stets auf das handwerkliche Können seiner Schüler großen Wert, so mussten diese zuerst das Zeichnen von architektonischen Gebäuden und Alltagsgegenständen erlernen, bevor er sie malen ließ. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger war der ältere Bruder des Generalmajors der Wehrmacht Ernst Emil Schnarrenberger (* 27. Juli 1893 in Buchen im Odenwald; † 10. Juni 1966 in Bad Mergentheim).[1][2].

        Nineteen Eighty-Four

      London: Secker and Warburg, 1949. First edition. Fine/about Fine. An exceptional copy of the first edition in the more fragile red dust jacket. Book Fine, unread and absolutely pristine with a small seller's ticket on the front paste-down. Dust jacket about Fine with minute wear at the spine ends and slight streaking to the red on the spine, apparently a minor printing defect. The white flaps and rear panel are bright white, without marks or toning. In all a superior example, arguably the finest currently on the market. Orwell's classic dystopian novel of a future totalitarian regime in Great Britain controlling and monitoring public thought and action. One of the most successful books in modern British literature, with over 65 foreign language translations. As relevant today, in the wake of the mass surveillance scandal reported by Snowden, as it was in the 1940s when Orwell was writing it. "Nineteen Eighty-Four is a book that goes through the reader like an east wind, cracking the skin, opening the sores... I do not think I have ever read a novel more frightening and depressing; and yet, such are the originality, the suspense, the speed of writing and withering indignation that it is impossible to put the book down." (V S Pritchett, contemporary reviewer). Fine in about Fine dust jacket.

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

      Cleveland, OH: N.p., 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.

        One-Way Ticket (First Edition, inscribed to Moses Asch)

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1949. First Edition. First Edition. INSCRIBED to Moses Asch on the front endpaper: "Especially for Moe Asch - and our record / Sincerely / Langston / New York / August 15, 1955." The inscription here likely refers to Hughes' 1955 recording for Moe Asch's record label, Folkways, titled "The Glory of Negro History," one of several spoken-word collaborations between Hughes and Asch in the 1950s. Asch was a pioneer in the area of recorded folk music, pressing the first commercial sides of Pete Seeger and Lead Belly, and a staunch supporter of the Civil Rights movement. His work with the latter included numerous collaborations with African-American poets and musicians throughout the post-war years. A wonderful association. Near Fine in a Very Good dust jacket. Jacket is bright, with some rubbing at the folds and a small chip at the crown (no titling affected).

In the original, not price-clipped dust-jacket. D-j with a few small tears, no loss, and minor wear to extremities. D-j. a bit brownspotted. Endpapers and edges with a bit of brownspotting, otherwise a very good and clean copy. 334 pp.. First edition, in the uncommon dust-jacket, of Ryle's main work that set out to correct the mistake of talking about mind and matter as "terms of the same logical type", thus aiming at an alleged mistake of Descarte's dualism, which had so deeply effected Western philosophy since the 17th century."This work offers what may with reservations be described as a theory of mind. But it does not give new information about minds... The philosophical arguments which constitute this book are intended not to increase what we know about minds, but to rectify the logical geography of the knowledge which we already possess." (Introduction).When Ryle claims that he wants to correct the "logical geography of the knowledge which we already possess" (i.e. about mental powers and operations), he aims at Descarte's separation of mind and matter. He claims that this "myth" constitutes a categorical mistake that places facts belonging to the physical within a framework of categories that are essentially different to those of the mental, although they bear the same categorical names, e.g. "mental processes are causes and effects, but different causes and effects from bodily movements." (p.19).It is this mistake which underlies Western philosophy, and it is this mistake that must be corrected. Ryle does this in the present wok by relocating facts and by claiming that every concept must legitimately belong to a certain category.The workings of the mind are not distinct from the actions of the body, and we need no "ghost in the machine" to explain human qualities, -man is not a machine, and what is called "human" in man is not something different to man."The Concept of Mind" was positively welcomed at the time of its appearance, and it was considered an important contribution to philosophy of language and mind as well as to the philosophy of psychology. With this work Ryle (1900-1976) established his name as one of the most important analytical philosophers.In the work he also works out, what is called "Ryle's Regress", the classical argument against cognitivist theories of explanation

        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'œuvre 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Troubled Island. An Opera in three Acts by William Grant Still. Libretto by Langston Hughes.

      8vo., original; printed wrappers. A fine copy. First edition of the libretto alone. Signed by Langston Hughes. Still and Hughes began writing Troubled Island in 1936, but Hughes left the project the following year to cover the Spanish Civil War for the Baltimore Afro-American. Arvey, a pianist and writer who had never written a libretto before, completed the project in Hughes? absence. Troubled Island was completed in 1939, but Still faced problems in arranging for a production. Planned premieres in 1945 and 1948 at the New York City Opera were withdrawn, but the company presented the world premiere of Troubled Island on March 31, 1949. It was the first time that the work of an African-American composer was presented by a major American opera company. Although the leading roles of Dessalines and his wife Azelia were based on black Haitians, the opera company cast white opera stars Robert Weede and Marie Powers, who work dark make-up for the 1949 premiere. African-American bass-baritone Lawrence Winters took over the role of Dessalines from Weede for the second performance of the opera and continued in the role for the remainder of the production's run. The premiere performance was greeted with 22 curtain calls. Critical reaction to the work ranged from mixed-to-negative. Time Magazine said, ?Composer Still's music, sometimes lusciously scored, sometimes naively melodic, often had more prettiness than power. In all, Troubled Island had more of the souffle of operetta than the soup bone of opera.? John Briggs of the New York Post opined, ?one was never sure one was hearing a first-rate performance of an inferior work or a second-rate performance of a good one,? while Miles Kastendieck, writing for both the New York Journal-American and the Christian Science Monitor, said of Still?s music: ?the result is a mixture of styles signifying talent and a feel for opera but achieving little more than a suggestion of it.? Years later, Judith Still, the daughter of Still and Arvey, said that the New York critics intentionally panned Troubled Island due to racism. ?Howard Taubmann (a critic and friend of Still) came to my father and said ?Billy, because I?m your friend I think that I should tell you this - the critics have had a meeting to decide what to do about your opera. They think the colored boy has gone far enough and they have voted to pan your opera.? And that was it. In those days, critics had that kind of influence.? Following its premiere, New York City Opera staged two additional presentations, on April 1 and May 1 of 1949. To date, New York City Opera has never revived the work in full; however, a 60th-anniversary concert production of excerpts was presented by the company in March 2009 at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.The opera has not been seen widely outside these two productions until October 19, 2013 when the South Shore Opera Company of Chicago presented the opera in full with a black cast, black chorus and black conductor. The opera was held at the Paul Robeson Theatre of the South Shore Cultural Center. (Wikipedia)
