        Human Action. A Treatise on Economics.

      London: William Hodge and Company Lilited,, 1949. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket An excellent copy in a slightly toned jacket with a few minor nicks and closed tears and adhesive stains to verso of flaps. First edition, UK issue from US plates, of Mises's "systematic study of the manifold activities of human beings in search of food, shelter, and the variety of goods they have come to need" (publisher's blurb). "More than any other economist of the twentieth century, von Mises has expounded and developed the theories of the Austrian school of economics... Although most of economic thought, after the mid-1930s, was moving in a different direction, von Mises proceeded to develop the general system of economic theory that he had laid out in his 1933 book [Grundprobleme der Nationalökonmie]. The result was his Nationalökonomie: Theorie des Handelns und des Wirtschaftens (1940), the first general treatise on economics since World War I; later it was expanded into the English-language work, Human Action (1949)." (Murray Rothbard in ESS).

        Stage Fright (Original screenplay, early treatment)

      Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1949. Detailed and lengthy treatment script for the 1950 film. A typically substantial treatment and likely the earliest printed script for this key Hitchcock film, made during his brief return to the UK between 1948 and 1950. Although Whitfield Cook received sole film credit for the screenplay, Hitchcock's wife Reville, an extremely experienced writer and script doctor, worked on the project from its inception. As with Hitchcock himself, her name rarely appeared on scripts, making this a rare item in that respect alone. Winner of the Edgar Award for Best Motion Picture. Blue titled wrappers, noted as "A Treatment" on the front wrapper, dated March 23, 1949, with credits for writers Reville and Cook. Title page present, mirroring the information on the front wraper. 98 leaves, mimeograph. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good with some yapping and moderate wear at the edges, bound with two gold brads. Hardy, The BFI Companion to Crime, p. 312, Selby, p. 190. Spicer, p. 447.

        [Typescript]: John Steinbeck Letters to His Wife, Elaine: Complete Transcripts of Their Correspondence

      New York. 1949-1966. Typed transcripts of 111 letters totaling approximately 360pp. Each letter is uniformly typed, stapled, and numbered in pencil in the upper right corner, and occasionally briefly annotated in pencil in Elaine Steinbeck's hand (usually adding the date or Steinbeck's local address from where it was sent; or here and there correcting a typographical error). The first several letters lightly worn and creased at edges, else about fine. Housed in a very good, slightly battered and taped contemporary cardboard box with Steinbeck's Sag Harbor, New York address written in pencil.The transcripts, which came from the Steinbeck estate, were typed by (or for) Elaine Steinbeck's for use in producing John Steinbeck: A Life in Letters (New York: Viking, 1975), the volume that she co-edited with Robert Wallstein. The correspondence here covers nearly two decades, beginning with the year before she and Steinbeck were married. While many of the letters were included in the final published collection, more than half were edited or omitted entirely here resulting in a wealth of fascinating primary source material unavailable elsewhere.Each letter is numbered and breaks down by year as follows:• 1949: letters 1-60• 1953: letters 61-67• 1955: letters 68-79• 1956: letters 80-81• 1957: letters 82-84• 1960: letters 85-94• 1961: letters 95-99• 1963: letters 100-108• 1965: letters 109-110• 1966: letter 111 .

      Moskau 1949 - 1958. 2. Auflage. Mit ca. 100.000 Stichwörtern auf ca. 32.000 Seiten. Enthalten sind mehr als 40.000 teils farbige Abbildungen sowie knapp 2.400 Karten. Grundwerk in 50 Bänden, der Ergänzungsband 51 sowie die Registerbände I und II, somit vollständiges Werk in 53 Bänden. Blaue Original-Kunstlederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln. Vorderdeckel mit Prägerelief und umlaufender Prägeleiste. 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.

        [Pound, Ezra- Autograph Leter Signed to Helen Rossetti Angeli, daughter of William Michael Rossetti

      Three pages, 1949. A sprawling, witty and provocative letter written by Pound early on during his extended stay at St. Elizabeth's hospital (12 years, from 1948-1859) to Helen Rossetti Angeli, the daughter of famed Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood co-founder William Michael Rossetti. Written in pencil on the full opened face, with two notes perhaps by HAR, and then on both flaps on the verso, with two wrap-around portions also possibly by HA Rossetti. A lengthy and fascinating letter. "Dear Mrs. Angeli, Thanks v. much for yo/ volume. but must protest no jacket yr/sister Olivia being certainly more alive than anyone in Italy definite purf, not jacket vs not all brit/publrs/ are of the line of Barabbas & born to be damned- perhaps the very printing machinery in England [side flap] Yeats' definition of yr island 'The only country where a man will lie WITHOUT being paid for it' endemic [side flap] lie DOWN not being able to bear the Truth. cordially Ezra Pound." Pound has also placed in the body of the letter, at right angles to the text, "POUND." A fascinating letter, meandering as it is perhaps clinical in revealing Pound's somewhat shaky mental health. Addressed by Pound on Air Mail letter: "Mrs. H. R. Angeli, co Hamish Hamilton, 90/ gr Russel st, London W.C. England." and postmarked May 14, 1949.

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". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Poursuivant sa réflexion entamée depuis plusieurs années sur le combat de l'écrivain avec le langage et sa relation au silence (notamment dans son article « Le Mythe d'Oreste »), Blanchot appuie ici sa démontsration sur Aytré qui perd l'habitude de Jean Paulhan - influence majeure - qui lui fournit notamment le titre de son article : « De ce petit récit, il ne résulte pas que la littérature ne doive logiquement commencer qu'avec le crime, ou à défaut, avec le vol. Mais qu'elle suppose un écroulement, une sorte de catastrophe initiale et le vide même que mesurent l'anxiété et le souci, c'est ce qu'on peut être tenté de voir. Or, remarquons-le, cette catastrophe ne s'exerce pas seulement sur le monde, les objets qu'on manie [.] ; elle s'étend aussi et en même temps au langage, à la possibilité des mots. C'est là le paradoxe d'Aytré. » Et d'ajouter : « L'écrivain ne débute pas toujours avec le sang d'un fait divers ou l'horreur d'un crime qui lui ferait sentir l'instabilité et le vide du monde, mais il ne peut guère songer à commencer autrement que par une certaine incapacité de parler et d'écrire, par une perte de mots, par l'absence même des moyens dont il surabonde. Ainsi lui est-il indispensable de sentir d'abord qu'il n'a rien à dire. » Jean Paulhan, donc, mais aussi Franz Kafka, Herman Melville ou Stéphane Mallarmé, autant d'écrivains admirés par Blanchot, se sont confrontés au paradoxe d'Aytré, au silence, à l'effondrement du langage. Et le critique de conclure : « [.] le silence du langage créateur, ce silence qui nous fait parler, n'est pas seulement une absence de parle, mais une absence tout court, cette distance que nous mettons entre les choses et nous, et en nous-mêmes, et dans les mots, et qui fait que le langage le plus plein est aussi le plus poreux, le plus transparent, le plus nul, car il laisse infiniment fuir le creux même qu'il enferme, sorte de petit alcarazas du vide. » Très beau texte sur le silence du langage, publié par Jean-Paul Sartre dans Les Temps Modernes. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First new version of the autograph manuscript of 17 pages, written in 1935. Manuscript writing very dense, full excluding the last 13 lines of printed text, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Complete typescript with a few variations from the manuscript and a copy of the first edition published in 1947 and finally published in 1950 is attached. In 1935, Blanchot has been working for 3 years on Thomas the Obscure (he completed in 1940) when interrupts his writing "that would not stop" to write the last word, a short story he describes as "an attempt to bypass another book underway to overcome the interminable and get a more linear narrative, yet painfully complex, a silent decision . ". In 1983, Blanchot, referring to the motivations of this "innocent text where murderers omens of future time resounded," can not say "how it is written and how unknown requirement, it has the answer." "It was not a text for publication," he says in the afterword of hindsight. The last word will indeed published 12 years later in 550 copies in the collection golden age (although it went bankrupt at the same time, the book will be on sale in 19 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Lucreia Borgia, original pen and ink caracature, from THE DECLINE AND FALL OF PRACTICALLY EVERYBODY

      NP, 1949. Original pen and ink drawing, 2-5/8 inches x 4 inches on white laid paper, pencil notation "Lucrezia Borgia" below drawing and "downcast eyes" to left of drawing, in original frame with thank-you note from Phyllis Feldkamp. Preparatory sketch by New Yorker cartoonist, William Steig, for Will Cuppy's THE DECLINE AND FALL OF PRACTICALLY EVERYBODY published posthumously by editor, Fred Feldkamp. Lucretia Borgia is the fourth of five historical personalities covered in Chapter 3, "Strage Bedfellows." The image as reproduced in the book the same as this original piece of art with the exception of Lucretia's eyes which are "downcast" as noted in Steig's hand as a correction to the left of the portrait. A small change was the reversal of the dagger and poison bottle at either side of Lucretia. William Steig (1907-2003) American cartoonist and illustrator of children's books, most notably "Shrek" began drawing for "The New Yorker" in 1930. Humorist Will Cuppy (1884)-1949) was also a "New Yorker" contributor; Fred Feldkamp (1914-1981) was Cuppy's close friend and literary executor. Fred Feldkamp and his wife, Phillys, sorted through Cuppy's files and notes to finish writing THE DECLINE AND FALL OF PRACTICALLY EVERYBODY less than a year after their friend's death. Although known primarily for his 1990 publication of SHREK, William Steig's career as a cartoonist - he was called the "king of cartoons" - started as early as 1930 for "The New Yorker" and lasted throughout the 20th century. The success of THE DECLINE AND FALL OF PRACTICALLY EVERYBODY garnered fame for Cuppy and Steig and went through many printings. It is still a good read.

        Death of a Salesman; Certain private conversations in two acts and a requiem

      The Viking Press, new York 1949 - 8vo, 139pp; orange cloth. The first printing, with the printer identified and "March 1949" on the copyright page; dust with price of $2.50 on the front flap and photo of Miller on the rear flap. While not a rare book -- there are at any given given moment several dozen copies available, it is a difficult book to find in top condition. This does not quite fit that particular bill, but despite its stated flaws, it is a handsome copy and a good value. Mild dampstain affecting lower edge, especially on rear, slight shelf wear, still an unusually nice copy in an unfaded dust jacket with a pair of small closed tears to the front, loght rubbing to the extremities, and evidence of the aforementioned dampstain to the lower rear panel. A much nicer copy than it sounds. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
