        Ande patagoniche: viaggi di esplorazione alla cordigliera patagonica australe.

      De Agostini, Milano. 1949 - 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 efficacia i propri viaggi. Fu anche fotografo e autore di film documentari dedicati alle zone oggetto delle proprie esplorazioni e il Museo Nazionale della Montagna Duca degli Abruzzi di Torino ne custodisce la ricchissima collezione fotografica. Nel corso dei propri viaggi ebbe spesso occasione di cimentarsi con salite alpinistiche la più nota delle quali è la prima ascensione al Monte San Lorenzo, in Patagonia, che data 1943. Realizzò inoltre un’accurata cartografia della Patagonia meridionale e della Terra del Fuoco colmando così varie lacune presenti nelle carte del tempo. Da ricordare infine il suo contributo alle scienze naturali e all’antropologia: raccolse minerali e fossili, contribuì alla classificazione di numerose specie vegetali, approfondì le conoscenze sulla morfologia glaciale delle zone esplorate e descrisse la vita e le tradizioni degli ultimi indigeni della Patagonia e della Terra del Fuoco. La sovr. a colori quasi sempre mancate è in copia a colori su carta pesante plastificata, tutto il resto è integro e in edizione originale (compresa la carta geografica spesso mancante). Formato: 380, [1] p., [45] c. di tav. (alcune ripieg.), [6] c. geogr. (alcune ripieg.) + 1 c. geogr. ripieg., 28 cm, tela, sovr. Molto buono.

        Utvandrarna. Roman.

      Stockholm; Bonniers, 1949. Tionde-nittonde tusendet. 19x13,5 cm. 525, (4, 1 blank) s. Förlagets halvlinneband, utan skyddsomslag. Placerad i en senare grå box. Fint ex. Dedikation: ''Till Kristina, min älskade, som lånat sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i denna bok, med tacksamhet och kärlek från Författaren''. Mottagaren Kristina Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005) hade under 40-talet och möjligen även senare en kärleksaffär med Moberg, som döpte Kristina i Utvandrarserien efter henne. Kärleksaffären upptäcktes via en svit om 30 böcker som Moberg dedicerat till henne. I exemplaret av Utvandrarna (1949) skriver han: "Till Kristina, min älskade, som lånat sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i denna bok, med tacksamhet och kärlek från Författaren", ett intyg som upprepas så sent som 1969 i pocketupplagan av Utvandrarserien: " Den 29/3 1969. / Till Kristina -- hon som givit sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i utvandrarromanen och till Minnet / med innerlig tillgivenhet från Författaren", vilket visar att hon var fullt närvarande i hans tankevärld under hela denna tid och därmed mycket väl kan ha påverkat hans senare litterära produktion. Vad som ytterligare talar för detta är exemplaret av Vår ofödde son, en pjäs från 1945 som behandlar abort-problematik. Detta är den enda av böckerna som Kristina låtit binda in i ett påkostat rött skinnband, med en pärmficka längst bak där hon samlat tidningsartiklar om boken och dess författare. I Kristinas exemplar av den danska utgåvan av samma bok, utgiven 1947, finns en dedikation från översättaren: "Kaera Kristina! / Denne Bog, den til Dels handler om dig, sendes dig til Erindring -- ikke om Forfattaren, men om Oversatteren. / Din Carl Erik''

        Nineteen Eighty-Four

      London: Secker and Warburg, 1949., 1949. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's light green cloth with titles in red to spine; top edge tinted. In the scarce red dustwrapper variant, this copy with deep vibrant colour at odds with its normally faded state. Unfortunately some wear to the head of the spine has resulted in an inch by half inch strip of loss to the head of the spine. Otherwise a most superior copy. Orwell's classic novel of a totalitarian future society is among the most famous and most cited works of dystopian fiction in literature, whose text and terminology has left a profound impression upon the English language. Basis for the Bafta-nominated movie starring John Hurt and Richard Burton. Connolly 100 listed. Fenwick, G: George Orwell. A Bibliography [A.12a], (1998). Listed in Time Magazine's 100 Best Modern Novels, also The Times: NovelList Top 60 Poll [2013].

        Eastern Approaches

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1949., 1949. First Edition. Octavo. Bound in publisher's red cloth with gilt titles to spine. Plain dust wrapper with titles to front cover and spine, and a summary of Maclean's life to rear cover; unprice-clipped, and originally priced at 13s. Illustrated with photographs and several fold-out maps. Binding is tight, with some minor bumping to spine ends. Dust wrapper is presentable but slightly rubbed, particularly to corners and spine ends. Internally clean and free from spotting; maps show no signs of damage and remain colourful. It is not very often that the same man is described as a Conservative Member of Parliament and also as 'a typical John Buchan hero' on the same dust jacket - giving some idea of the varied and exciting life recounted by Maclean in this autobiography. He is frequently cited as one of the inspirations for James Bond.

        Signed Songwriters Contract

      1949 - African-American jazz and popular music composer, pianist and singer best known for his songs "Basin Street Blues," "I Ain't Got Nobody," "She'll Be Coming Around The Mountain," and many more. He also collaborated on songs with W.C. Handy, Fats Waller, and Josephine Baker (when both were in exile). Williams was one of the earliest African-Americans to be inducted in the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970. Exceedingly rare signed music publishing contract from the vaults of Hometown - Village Music, 4 pages, 32.5 inches (when unfolded fully) x 8.5 inches, February 21, 1949, whereby Spencer Williams and Charles Reade agree to publish their music with Sidney Prosen and agree to divide all proceeds at the rate of 1/3 share (each). Boldly signed by all parties including Spencer who has used his address as 115 - 11 173rd street St Albans, New York - which was Louie Armstrong's house! Note: Spencer died in 1965, and there is virtually nothing of his on the market. The Schomberg Library, arguably the largest repository of Black historical material in the United States, possesses not a single signed item. Without a doubt, Spencer is much rarer than Charlie Parker and Bix Beiderbecke. Near fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Housed in the original grey card slipcase. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box made by the Chelsea Bindery. Chemise faintly tanned, tiny closed tear at head of spine, light spotting to lower margins; slipcase a little rubbed at extremities and with one tiny stain. A bright and fresh copy in excellent condition. Signed limited edition, large paper issue. The tirage de tête, copy number 1 of 10 copies numbered in roman numerals signed by Genet and printed on Vélin d'Arches paper, from a complete edition of 410. Laid in is an autograph note written by Genet, slipped inside a rice paper birthday card with mawkish hand-painted decorations. The inscription is split in two distinctive parts, the first, in a neat hand, reads: "Cette carte se mange comme le pain des anges mon âme de la fange, tirée par vous ô Lange qui êtes sans mélange sauf de fleurs et d'oranges, votre âme dans ses langes purifierait le Gange. Dans le ciel des mésanges on hurle vos louanges"; the second part, in a much looser hand: "Eh bien, ma petite mon ange je suis très simple, très gentil, et je ne vous souhaite en vous embrassant que du bonheur, votre Plantagenet". The signature echoes an interrogation scene in Miracle de la Rose (1946) in which the narrator's name, "Genet", is turned into "Plantagenet" by the interrogator. The limited edition, reserved solely for subscribers, preceded the first trade edition.

        WEET JE NOG? VERHALEN EN SPROOKJES

      Amsterdam, Contact. 1949. Hardcover. 1st edition, first printing. Original illustrated publisher?'s boards in the extremely rare dustjacket. Small 8vo, 64 pages. Published 2 years after the famous diary. Designed and illustrated by Kees Kelfkens. Rare first edition of this collection of simple stories and fairy-tales for Dutch children, written by Anne Frank at the age of 14, while in hiding. Primo Levi suggested that Anne Frank is frequently identified as a single representative of the millions of people who suffered and died as she did because "One single Anne Frank moves us more than the countless others who suffered just as she did but whose faces have remained in the shadows. Perhaps it is better that way; if we were capable of taking in all the suffering of all those people, we would not be able to live. " Otto Frank, Anne?'s father spent the remainder of his life after publication of the Diary as custodian of his daughter's legacy, saying, "It's a strange role. In the normal family relationship, it is the child of the famous parent who has the honor and the burden of continuing the task. In my case the role is reversed. " An outstanding copy, in the exceedingly rare 1st edition dust jacket, which has a dime-size spot of damage on the spine (no text affected) , and a touch of edgewear. A very nice copy. (kh-2-12) .

        TALES OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1949. Hardcover. Some light spotting to the cloth. Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper, with a great inscription. 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.
