        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).

        The Concept of Mind.

      London, N.Y., etc., Hutchinson House, (1949). Royal 8vo. Orig. red full cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Minor traces of wear to extremities and minor soiling to spine. 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)
