        Histoire amoureuse des Gaules

      Paris Editions Athêna 1949 - Examplaire numeroté No 748 Livre relié. Pages livre entre couverture souple. Très belles illustrations couleur pleine page. Très bon état. Illustrations rehaussées de pochoirs, bandeaux, cadres, lettrines et cul-de-lampe d'après les originaux de DERAMBURE. Achevé d' Imprimer le 20 aril 1949. Son Histoire amoureuse des Gaules est un jeu d'écriture mondain avec des histoires galantes à clés, à peine transposées, de fins portraits et des passages adaptés de Pétrone qui devaient amuser ses contemporains. Extrêmement animés, pleins de caractère, ses Mémoires, publiés après sa mort, possèdent tout le charme d'un roman d'aventure historique de cape et d'épée. Sa correspondance volumineuse ne le cède en variété et en intérêt qu'à peu d'autres du genre, à part celle de sa cousine Marie de Sévigné qui avait pourtant été fort blessée du cruel portrait qu'il avait fait d'elle dans son Histoire amoureuse des Gaules où il l'a dépeinte « inégale jusqu'aux paupières et aux prunelles de ses yeux. ». C'est grâce à Bussy-Rabutin que les lettres de cette dernière ont été rendues publiques. Size: 4º, binded, green chagrin, hard covert. - over 7 in- 9 in Tall. N° de ref. de la librería 014012. Encuadernado por Antolin Palomino, uno de los mejores y más conocidos encuadernadores de Madrid en el s. XX. Chagreen verde, ambas tapas con fileteado en seco y adornos dorados en las esquinas y en el centro de las mismas, lomera con hilos dorados, XXIII-262 pp. Todo el texto orlado. Ocho láminas a color y a toda plana con alguna pequeña ilustración intercalada en el texto, viñetas, cul-de-lamp. Bella edición de bibliófilo, ilustrada y muy cuidada firmada por A. Palomino, perteneciente a una tirada especial de 995 ejemplares; mantiene la portada original. Esta obra fue un impacto en Francia y Europa e hizo que su autor, el Conde Bussy-Rabutin pasara trece meses en la Bastilla por relatar, con nombres identificables, la vida amorosa de la corte francesa. Ejemplar en perfecto estado. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Death of a Salesman (Signed First Edition)

      New York: The Viking Press, 1949. First edition. Fine/Fine. Signed by the author on the first blank. Book Fine with a short price code stamped on the final blank, otherwise untouched. In a Fine dust jacket with bright, vibrant colors, including the spine fonts and only the most niggling wear at the crown. A book that is becoming extremely difficult to locate in Fine condition. Arthur Miller's 1949 play - one of the towering classics of the American stage. "Death of a Salesman" follows the trials of Willy Loman, the quintessential American tragic hero. The original production was directed by Elia Kazan, starred Lee J. Cobb, and ran for 742 performances. The role of Loman has also been played by such luminaries as George C. Scott, Brian Dennehy, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. The play would win a Tony Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and the New York Drama Circle Critics' Award, becoming the first play to win all three prizes. It would also be adapted into a 1951 film, directed by Stanley Roberts -- Fredric March would be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor. "Arthur Miller has written a superb drama. From every point of view "Death of a Salesman," which was acted at the Morosco last evening, is a rich and memorable drama. It is so simple in style and so inevitable in theme that it scarcely seems like a thing that has been written and acted." (Brooks Atkinson in a Contemporary New York Times review).

        La Folle d'Amour - Confession d'une Chinoise du XVIIIe siècle - Adapté et Préfacé par Lucie Paul Margueritte, Illustré par Wang Chao Ki

      Editions du Siao, M.CM.XLIX (1949). Tirage limité à 204 exemplaires. Celui-ci numéroté No B, exemplaire sur Vidalon, réservé aux collaborateurs. - 1 volume in-4, 112 pp., en feuillets libres, couverture de papier rose illustré, sans chemise cartonnée ni emboîtage. Un très bel exemplaire, illustré de 10 reproductions érotiques en couleurs par Wang Chao Ki. Ces 10 illustrations ont été gravées sur bois par Bracon Duplessis et réhaussées à la main. Cette histoire traditionnelle "La Folle d'Amour" est la confession d'une Chinoise du XVIIIe siècle qui "s'attarde sur ses brûlants souvenirs, qui ne nous épargne l'aveu d'aucune de ses faiblesses, mais ces confidences scabreuses sont émaillées de poèmes de la bonne époque, et leur citation opportune vient agréablement poétiser l'instant d'aberration minutieusement décrit. Et, pour que la morale soit honorée, malgré tout, l'immorale héroïne se repent finalement et se fait ermite, en vieillissant." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Black Incantation. 50 Danseurs et Chanteurs D'Afrique. Direction Artistique Rikar

      Paris: S.P.I.C. [Societé Parisienne d'Impression et Cartonnage],, [c.1949]. Grande Semaine de Gala aux Ambassadeurs. Lithographic theatre poster. Framed and glazed, floated on black background mount in a black-stained wood box frame. Striking image in sepia, black, yellow and green by Castelli Aubin. Somewhat browned overall, some small repairs at the corners, and one short tear with a cellotape repair verso, overall very good. Scarce and striking poster for a Black "Ballet" written by the musician/artistic director Fonseca-Nou Ka Sonjé, better known by his "Portuguese" name Louis Vera da Fonseca. Born in the Cape Verde Islands of a Senegalese mother and Cape Verdean father, Fonseca showed early aptitude for music and dance, and after settling in Paris became involved in radio broadcasts of music from the French colonies. The present poster was for a spectacular show first staged at the Casino de Deauville, where reputedly on its première the Aga Khan offered a "tip" of 500,000 Francs, which Fonseca distributed among the cast. Fonseca has been categorized as an early proponent of a populist "world music", perhaps it would be fairer to see him as operating on the fringes of the Négritude movement.

        URBANISTICA Rivista dell'Istituto Nazionale Urbanistica - Direttore Adriano Olivetti.

      Torino,, 1949-1969.. In-4 p., bross. figur. (4 dorsi con picc. manc.). Di questa importante rivista illustrata (con periodicità varia) offriamo una collezione completa di 55 numeri - in 45 fascicoli - dal n. 1 (luglio/agosto 1949, Anno XVIII) al n. 54/55 (settembre 1969). Fino al 1956 la direzione è di Adriano Olivetti, poi di Giovanni Astengo. Uniamo l'Indice analitico per gli annni 1949-60. Buon esemplare di tutta la raccolta. "Urbanistica" venne fondata nel 1932 (sottotitolo: Rivista della Sezione regionale piemontese dell?'Istituto nazionale di Urbanistica) e fu sospesa dal 1946 al 1948. Dal punto di vista teorico e politico documenta, dal 1949 a oggi, le condizioni dello sviluppo urbano, i piani regolatori, gli studi preliminari, i materiali del dibattito urbanistico in Italia e all?'estero. Alcuni numeri della rivista sono ancor oggi essenziali per la comprensione di questa storia: due esempi fra i tanti il n. 18-19/1956 dedicato al Piano Regolatore di Milano e il n. 28-29/1959 che include i piani regolatori di Roma dal 1880 alla seconda guerra mondiale. Tra il 1949 e il 1960 la vicenda di "Urbanistica" è profondamente connessa all?'esperienza del Movimento Comunità e alla figura di Olivetti e si concentra sui temi della ricostruzione, di un?'organica pianificazione del territorio e sull?'esigenza (cara a Olivetti) di un?'indispensabile ristrutturazione ammministrativa dello Stato. Importante è l'impaginazione e il progetto grafico della rivista, in particolare fra il 1949 e il 1965, periodo in cui opera Egidio Bonfante che disegna anche le copertine?". Cfr. Cat. Archivolto, n. 6, 1993 - Bianchetti 1987, p. 32-39.
