        [Photo Album]: Girl's High School Album from Connecticut

      New Haven, Connecticut. 1949. Oblong quarto. Green leather over paper boards embossed with gilt decorations measuring 10" x 13". Assembled are 230 black and white photographs of various sizes from roughly 2" x 3.5" to 7" x 9" affixed to stiff black paper with captions. Some toning, creasing on occasional photos, and tiny tears on the paper leaves thus very good. A photo album documenting New Haven, Connecticut native, Rhoda Sochrin, while attending Wilbur Cross High School and later Southern Connecticut State University. The exploits of young New Englanders in the late 1940s and early 1950s plays out through the extensive pages of Sochrin's album. Beach excursions filled with antics of boys trying to impress their female counterparts with handstands and silly poses; a girl smoking with the caption, "for blackmail use"; another of Rhoda and "Howie" states, "the lovers? Either I'm asleep or I'm dreamy eyed." Later pictures show the group at a Phi Beta dance and include professional "souvenir" photographs with a live band pictured behind them. Sochrin also collected autographs and publicity photos of celebrities, present are Howard Smith, Karen Rich, and Artie Shaw. Rhoda was a member of the current affairs club and aspired to be a writer and contributed to her university's literary journal. A nice insight on the goings on of the life of the American teenager after the war. .

        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.

        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).

Il fait ses études de droit à Toulouse et à Paris, puis entre dans la magistrature. Il sert à Madagascar à partir de 1903 et reste dans la « grande île », qu'il aima tant, jusqu'à sa retraite, en 1934. Il retourne alors en Roussillon et s’installe dans la propriété familiale du mas Camo, où il meurt, presque centenaire, en 1974. Il est surtout connu surtout comme poète et ses recueils lui valurent le Grand Prix de l'Académie Française. Mais il fut aussi le biographe de Maillol et de Dufy et le promoteur infatigable de la littérature et des arts malgaches. » (La Revue critique), on a pu écrire de lui qu’il était : « Le fils bien portant de Baudelaire ». Envoi de l’auteur à Marcel Sautier. Dans une reliure plein vélin, lettrage doré. Ensemble unique en parfait état. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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]
