The cover page is printed on U.S. STEEL CORPORATION / THEATRE GUILD ON THE AIR stationery. The radio script is dated May 8, 1949. The cover / title page has the following mimeographed information: "OF MICE AND MEN", By John Steinbeck. Adapted by (sic) Radio By Robert Anderson. Sunday, May 8th, 1949. AS BROADCAST 5/8/49. The actors in this 1949 Radio Play included BURGESS MEREDITH, JUNE HAVOC, E.G. MARSHALL, and others. They are listed on the "Characters" page. The OF MICE AND MEN Radio Script is Accompanied by a two page TYPED CARBON AGREEMENT between THE THEATRE GUILD and JOHN STEINBECK. The Agreement is Dated March 15, 1949. In it, John Steinbeck grants permission for The Theatre Guild to adapt his Play, OF MICE AND MEN, for the Radio; and to Broadcast and Re-Broadcast the Radio Play Adaptation. The AGREEMENT is SIGNED in JOHN STEINBECK'S name by his SECRETARY (i.e. Signed Secretarially). Below Steinbeck's secretarially signed signature is typed: "JOHN STEINBECK / c/o ANNIE LAURIE WILLIAMS / 18 East 41 Street / New York City, N.Y." Annie Laurie Williams was the GREAT LITERARY AGENT who was Steinbeck's agent. The Agreement is also SIGNED by ARMINA MARSHALL (Actress and Theatrical Producer) for THE THEATRE GUILD. Condition: RADIO SCRIPT: The cover page has corner creases, wear and tearing around the staples (upper left corner) and light edge wear; the last page has pulled from the staples and has chipping and wear to its edges; a few of the first and last pages have some edge wear and corner creasing; all pages have some light toning; the first page has the pencil price ($6,500), code, and brief note of the previous owner, Peter Howard (see more about Peter Howard below); otherwise this very rare radio script is complete, bright, clean and unmarked. TWO PAGE LETTER: Both pages of the letter are worn, chipped, torn and creased at their edges, the top of the first page has a pencil code and price by the previous owner Peter Howard; otherwise all the typing and signatures remain bright and clear. Provenance of the late PETER HOWARD, ABAA, owner of the now gone SERENDIPITY BOOKS of Berkeley, California. Included is the manila folder that he used to hold the above documents. The folder has no real relation to the Radio Script and Typed Signed Agreement, but it is of interest in that Peter has written his notes on both the front and back sides of the folder, including that he entered (into his system) the documents on 10/3/91, and, on several places, his price of $6,500. The folder is in POOR condition, split in two parts, torn and chipped along the edges. The folder is included only in that it might be of general interest and because it provides provenance. You can read about ROBERT ANDERSON on Wikipedia. You can read about the Literary Agent ANNIE LAURIE WILLIAMS on various Internet sites.

        The World Crisis

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1949. First edition, third printing. Hardcover. This is a collector grade copy of the first abridged and revised edition, third and final printing of Churchill's history of the First World War in the dust jacket unique to this printing. Churchill's history - which he titled "The World Crisis" - was originally published between 1923 and 1931. Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the front. He served as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915. After the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his masterwork - originally published in six volumes between 1923 and 1931 - far exceeds this purpose. This important edition covering the war years 1911-1918 is not just an abridgement. It incorporates revisions by Churchill with new material, including a whole new chapter on the Battle of the Marne, as well as a new introduction. The U.S. edition preceded the British, making it the true first edition. There were three printings of the U.S. first abridged and revised edition - 1931, 1942, and 1949. All three are quite scarce in the original dust jackets. Here is the third printing, with a black dust jacket unique to this printing that prominently features a famous wartime photo of Churchill by Yousuf Karsh on the front face. A large book and quality production, it is 866 pages with fold-out maps and illustrations, bound in an attractive, vertically scored red cloth. This is a beautiful, near fine plus copy in a near fine dust jacket. The red cloth binding is square, tight, and immaculately clean with nicely rounded spine. The only exterior flaws noted are lightly bumped upper corners. The contents are notably bright with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. All fold-out maps and illustrations are present and pristine. We note only a trace of barely discernible soiling to the otherwise bright page edges. The black dust jacket of this edition proved particularly susceptible to wear and scuffing, perhaps owing to the thin paper of the dust jacket (which was printed black on white paper), and the size and weight of the book. This dust jacket is near fine with perhaps the best spine presentation weÂ’ve seen; the red spine lettering remains vividly bright with no trace of sunning and there is only minor wear to the spine ends and rear hinge. The dust jacket is unclipped, retaining the original front flap price. The illustrated front face shows only light scuffing with no loss. The sole trivial losses are a .5 inch chip to the upper edge of the rear face and a closed tear with some wrinkling and small chip losses to the rear flap fold. Withal, an exceptionally well-preserved example of a striking and notoriously fragile dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival clear cover.

        Handgefertigtes Album mit 40 schwarz-weiß Photographien (Vintages, Silbergelatine) von Gertrud Hesse, Curt Bieling und Albert Renger-Patzsch, die die Enstehung der wohl bekanntesten und begehrtesten deutschen Juwelierarbeit dokumentieren. Gemeint ist die "Deutsche Meisterschale" des DFB, entworfen und gefertigt in der Werkstatt von Elisabeth Treskow (1898 - 1992), die wie G. Hesse und A. Renger-Patzsch Mitglied der Essener Künstlerkolonie auf der Margarethenhöhe war und eine der herausragenden Goldschmiedinnen des 20. Jahrhunderts ist. Die Photos sind montiert auf 26 Blätter aus festem Karton, teilweise sind die dargestellten Arbeitsschritte handschriftlich in Bleistift erläutert.

      - Das schlichte Album aus hellem Leder (möglicherweise von Frida Schoy) ist nicht signiert, auf dem ersten Blatt findet sich der handschriftliche Eintrag 'E.T.', auf dem letzten der Stempel 'Treskow Essen'. Die Meisterschale des DFB, auch liebevoll "Salatschüssel" genannt, wurde 1949 angefertigt und ersetzte die im Zweiten Weltkrieg verschollene Victoria-Trophäe (die erst nach der Wiedervereinigung wiederentdeckt wurde). Auf der Schale sind alle Deutschen Meister seit 1903 eingraviert. Entworfen und gefertigt wurde sie von der Professorin Elisabeth Treskow mit ihren Studenten an den Kölner Werkschulen. E. Treskow hatte in den 1930er Jahren für prominente Auftraggeber gearbeitet und zahlreiche Preise gewonnen, u. a. die Goldmedaille auf der Pariser Weltausstellung. Im Alter beschrieb sie, die sich immer zu den Traditionen des Humanismus bekannt hatte, es als großes Glück in den Jahren des Nationalsozialismus nicht zu offiziellen Aufträgen herangezogen worden zu sein. 1948 berief der neue Direktor der Kölner Werkschulen E. Treskow nach Köln. "Hier entfaltete sie bis zu ihrer Pensionierung 1964 eine beispiellose künslerische und pädagogische Wirksamkeit" (Rüdiger Juppien). Bei der Herstellung der Meisterschale wurden 5,5 kg Sterlingsilber verarbeitet; zur Verzierung befanden sich auf der ursprünglichen Schale elf kleine und fünf große Turmaline; sie hatte dabei zunächst einen Durchmesser von 50 cm. 1981 wurde die Schale dann mittels eines Silberrings vergrößert um Platz für die Namen der kommenden Meister zu schaffen. Das vorliegende Album dokumentiert in eindrucksvollen Photographien (ca. 23 x 17 cm und wenige 14,5 x 11,5) den Entstehungsprozess der Meisterschale: wir sehen Elisabeth Treskow und ihre Mitarbeiter und Mitarbeiterinnen beim präzisen Sägen, Biegen, Granulieren (eine antike Goldschmiedetechnik, deren Wiederentdeckung sich E. Treskow in den 30er Jahren gewidmet hatte), Silbereingiessen, Feilen, Löten, Bohren, Richten, Ziselieren etc., bis zur fertigen Schale. Zwischen diesen Detail- und Werkstatt-Aufnahmen finden sich 6 Photographien der Verkaufsräume und des Büros, sowie 11 kleinere Aufnahmen (ca. 7,5 x 9 cm) von Steinschleifern. Anläßlich der Meisterschaft 2013 erklärte die Süddeutsche Zeitung die Meisterschale zur Femme fatale des deutschen Fußballs (und wohl der überwiegenden Mehrzahl der Fußballbegeisterten in Deutschland): "Sie hat wahrscheinlich mehr Rathausbalkone von oben und mehr Bierduschen von unten gesehen als jeder andere in diesem Land. Sie wurde von bedeutenden Männern mehrerer Generationen gestreichelt, von Hans Schäfer und Franz Beckenbauer, von Lothar Matthäus und Mario Götze. Sie hat nach der Bremer Meisterschaft von 2004 mit dem allenfalls spärlich bekleideten Brasilianer Ailton auf einer Couch gekuschelt und mit so manchem Kicker und so manchem Funktionär eine Nacht im Bett verbracht. Einmal durfte sie sogar mit Klaus Augenthaler im Entmüdungsbecken baden. Die Meisterschale ist, wenn man so will, die Femme fatale des deutschen Fußballs. Da trifft es sich, dass sie tatsächlich von Frauenhänden gefertigt wurde. Die Kölner Goldschmiedin und Kunstprofessorin Elisabeth Treskow erhielt 1949 vom DFB den Auftrag, einen "künstlerisch wertvollen Wanderpokal" zu fertigen." (Süddeutsche Zeitung, 11. 5. 2013). Dieser einzigartige "Wanderpokal" ist in der Bundesrepublik die Juwelierarbeit, die nahezu jeder und jede kennt: "Meistens sieht man sie hochgehalten, auf dem Rasen und auf den Tribünen. Menschen verbinden mit ihr magische Momente, Freud, Leid, höchste Erregung, tiefste Trauer, individuelle wie kollektive Erfahrungen. Sie stiftet Generationen übergreifende, lebenslange Zusammengehörigkeiten und Erinnerungsgemeinschaften." (Uta C. Schmidt, Frauen.ruhr.Geschichte). Von herausragender Bedeutend ist das vorliegende Album aber nicht allein durch den prominenten Gegenstand, dessen Herstellung wir durch die photographische Dokumentation nachvollziehen können. Oder durch die hervorragende Qualität der Aufnahmen v [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A Short Account of the Life and Work of Wynkyn de Worde, with a leaf from The Golden Legend printed by him at the sign of The Sun in Fleet Street, London, the Year 1527

      San Francisco: Printed by the Grabhorn Press for the Book Club of California, 1949. Leaf book. One of 375 copies. Title in red, printed in red and black throughout in Rudolf Koch's Bibel Gotisch type on French handmade. Seven devices of Wynkyn de Worde reproduced in the text and with decorative initials by Zena Kavin. Folio, original brown cloth backed, decorated paper covered board, printed paper labels on spine and upper cover, in the original plain paper protective wrapper (chipped at extremities). The texts used here on Wynkyn de Worde and on the textual and printing history of the Golden Legend, were compiled from various sources by Robert Grabhorn and is a fascinating story despite the fact that "with Wynkyn de Worde his record forces us to the conclusion that his history was largely one of long and industrious labor, free from any drama other than that provided by his time". The original Wynkyn de Worde leaf in our copy is folio 53 and appears to be of the final words of the first part of the text the first two pages of the index. A very good copy with the booklabel of Clarence B. Hanson on the front pastedown.

      1949. MUNARI, [Bruno]. [Libro illeggibile]. Small stampled pamphlet, 105 x 90 mm, comprised of off-white paper covers, the front cover with a hand torn hole, followed by 6 sheets of various coloured tissue paper (purple, green and yellow) each with a hand torn hole, and a silver paper star pasted down on the recto of the back cover, preserved in a new purple cloth folding box. Milan: Muggiani, n.d. ca. 1949. |~||~||~||~| An exceedingly rare ephemeral work by Bruno Munari. This small pamphlet is presented in the style of Munari's Libro illeggibile and was most likely created in a very small edition intended as a gift for friends. This copy comes by way of a friend and collaborator of Munari's who remembers receiving it around 1949. Some minor creasing, overall a fine survival of a fragile work. Not in Maffei's Munari I Libri.

The sixteen works, selected for the portfolio, traveled under the auspices of the American Jewish Congress throughout the U. S.

        The Art of Living [Inscribed Association Copy]

      NY: Harper & Brothers. (1949). The second book by this artist who is perhaps most famous as a New Yorker cover artist and cartoonist: his "View of the World from 9th Avenue" became an iconic and satirical comment on New Yorkers' self-centered view of their place in the world. This book comprises about 300 Steinberg drawings, most published here for the first time. Between the publication of his first book and this one, Steinberg had been selected for the prestigious show "Fourteen Americans" at the Museum of Modern Art, along with such artists as Robert Motherwell, Ahile Gorky, I. Rice Pereira, and others, and is considered to have been the show that "proclaimed the arrival of Abstract Expressionism" in 1946. This copy is inscribed by Steinberg to Peter Matthiessen, "with affectionate greetings" and dated December 25, 1985. Another name in pencil on half title; sunning and staining to illustrated boards; a good copy, lacking the dust jacket but with the front and back jacket flaps laid in. A nice association copy between a notable artist and a notable writer. First Edition. Hardcover.

"Official National League Ford Frick Baseball signed by Hall of Famers Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Duke Snider, Pee Wee Reese, Gil Hodges, Billy Cox, Don Newcombe (rookie), Gene Hermanski, Carl Furillo, Preacher Roe, Johnny Jorgensen, Bruce Edwards, Mike McCormick, Ed Miksis, Tom Brown, Dick Whitman, Johnny Hopp, Hoe Hatten, Rex Barney, Jack Banta, Ervin Palica, Paul Minnner, Morrie Martin, manager Burt Shotten on the sweet spot, bullpen catcher Sam Narron, coach Milt Stock, and two others.Also signed by Dodgers pitcher Elmer Sexauer who had pitched two-thirds of an inning on September 6, 1948, and walked two batters on September 12, 1948; that was his entire major league career. He most probably was visiting the team when this ball was signed. The signatures of Snider and three others appear to have had minor restoration. Fairly even shellacking, the custom of the time, preserves the major signatures. Pre-certified by JSA."

        THE LOVE LETTERS OF MARK TWAIN

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1949. FIRST EDITION. No. 6 OF 155 SPECIAL COPIES WITH A FLYLEAF SIGNED "S. L. CLEMENS" AND "MARK TWAIN." n. Hardcover. A Virtually Mint Copy of an Edition Signed by Twain 39 Years after He Died. 243 x 165 mm. mm (9 1/2 x 6 1/2"). 5 p.l., 374 pp. Edited and with an introduction by Dixon Wecter. FIRST EDITION. No. 6 OF 155 SPECIAL COPIES WITH A FLYLEAF SIGNED "S. L. CLEMENS" AND "MARK TWAIN." Publisher's black cloth with printed spine label, original green dust jacket with printed spine label. Housed in the publisher's nearly fine slipcase Frontispiece portrait of Twain and his wife, Livia. A FLAWLESS COPY. This is a love story in letters, offered here in one of the special copies containing autographs that had been provided years earlier by Twain (1835-1910) and stored away by Harper's for future use. Olivia Langdon (1867-1904) and Twain met in December of 1867 through her brother, and their first date was to attend a reading by Dickens in New York City. Between then and their marriage in February of 1870, Twain fervently courted Olivia, mostly through letters. The hard-drinking Twain, always yearning to travel, always inclined to invest unwisely, was a difficult spouse, but his wife, even though suffering perpetually from frail health, was an indomitable helpmate, especially as editor of his writings and speeches. The letters here cover the entire span of courtship and marriage, with a few letters included from Olivia, and the affection from both sides is touching. The publication of this collection was a major literary event, and according to a "Publisher's Weekly" article at the time, demand was so high for this special autographed edition that "the publishers decided that the only fair way to give them out to the trade would be a drawing, allowing one chance to each store, regardless of size." There cannot be a nicer copy of this book anywhere.
