        Moshe Dayan's personally owned commemorative ceramic plate from the 1949 Israel and Jordan Armistice negotiations

      The plate was purchased by Dayan's then wife, Rut Dayan at the negotiations in 1949. The negotiations took place ins Rhodes Greece. The plate is decorated with blue, green and red flowers and bear the words "Armistice Negotiations Rhodes, 1949." The Armistice Agreement with Jordan was signed in Rhodes with the help of UN mediation on April 4, 1949. The agreement states that this is a necessary step towards reestablishing peace in the Land of Israel, and emphasizes that in no way is the armistice line to be interpreted as a political or territorial border, nor does it constitute interference with the rights, claims, or positions of any side vis-?-vis the final settlement of the question of the Land of Israel. The agreement set the parameters for prisoner exchanges, demilitarized zones, no-man's land, and monitoring arrangements. In the framework of the agreement, Israel was given land in the Sharon and the Irone River areas, and sections of the Beit Shean Valley were exchanged. The plate comes with provenance from Rut Dayan with regards to when she purchased the plate.

        COMUNITA' rivista del movimento di Comunità (11 annate 1949-1959) consistente parte di tutto il pubblicato nel periodo più "significativo" della storia del movimenio di Adriano Olivetti.., Ivrea (Torino), Olivetti, 1949

      Si tratta di una rivista fondamentale per la cultura e la politica italiana del dopoguerra. Nacque come espressione del gruppo politico-idealista nominato "Movimento di Comunità ", di ispirazione democratico-socialista ed autonomista E' nota l'uscita irregolare, quasi amatoriale con formato tipo giornale in soli pochi esemplari negli anni 1946-1947, con tiratura assai limitata. Soltanto all'inizio del 1949, con il trasferimento a Milano ed Ivrea, la rivista prese il giusto ritmo. Infatti dal gennaio-febbraio 1949, (viene indicato ANNO III e la numerazione ricomincia dal n. 1) con la raccolta- sequenza che quì presentiamo inizia la grande stagione di COMUNITA'. Nel suo "Progetto", Adriano Olivetti riuscì a coinvolgere importanti personaggi politici, scrittori, filosofi, pensatori ed artisti, che con i loro scritti e la loro presenza fisica ,contribuirono alla affermazione del Movimento ed a una maggiore presa di coscienza generale di tante problematiche italiane,sociali e politiche. Contemporaneamente l'azienda OLIVETTI cresceva e si formava la cosidetta scuola degli "Olivettiani" che non erano soltanto managers od operatori, ma rappresentavano una filosofia di lavoro e di vita e di presenza nella società civile. Qui poi citiamo solo alcuni degli importanti collaboratori : Anceschi, Foà V., Noventa, Agnoletti, Fortini, Pampaloni, Benedetto Croce, Sinisgalli,Soavi, Argan, E. Forcella, M. Guidacci, Musatti, B. Zevi , Mario Praz, A. Bertolucci, Garosci, Loria, Ignazio Silone, Portoghesi, Santini, Visalberghi, Ferarotti e tantissimi altri. Il periodo che qui presentiamo (1949-1959) è certamente il più fertile di nuove proposte ed idee nei vari campi letterari, politici, sociali ed artistici. Il direttore è sempre ADRIANO OLIVETTI ne è una garanzia assoluta.. (Alla sua scomparsa avvenuta nel 1960 il movimento di Comunità si dissolse ma restò vivo lo spirito iniziale) mentre in redazione si rivelarono fondamentali GIORGIO SOAVI, EGIDIO BONFANTE e RENZO ZORZI (che poi proseguirà la gestione come direttore e come protagonista di tante valide iniziative olivettiane). Il dettaglio delle annate presentate tutte in buone condizioni. ANNO III 1949 - Dal n. 1 del genn- febbraio 1949 al n. 5 del sett-ott. 1949 (Lievi restauri al dorso del n. 1) ANNO IV 1950 - Dal n- 6 del gen.- febbraio al n. 9 del sett. - ottobre 1950 .

      Harry S. Truman 1949 Inauguration White House Guests, one page, 8" x 9.75" (visible). Vice President Harry S. Truman succeeded to the presidency when President Franklin D. Roosevelt died on April 12, 1945. He was elected to a full four year term in 1948 and was inaugurated on January 20, 1949. This is a list of the people who would be Truman's guests at the White House during the Inaugural festivities, with ten names added by President Truman. He's also corrected his brother-in-law's name, changing "Frederick" to "Fred." Typed on the page in one column, 12 names, Headed "House Guests." The list: "Mr. J. Vivian Truman/Miss Martha Ann Truman/Miss Mary Truman/Mr. & Mrs. Frank G. Wallace/Mr. & Mrs. George Wallace/Miss Ethel Noland/Mr. & Mrs. John C. Truman/Mr. & Mrs. Fred Wallace/Mrs. Roy Davis Hornbuckle/Mrs. Talbot Romine/Marian Wallace/David Wallace." President Truman was Mr. J. Vivian Truman and Miss Mary Truman's brother. Miss Martha Anne Truman was the President's niece. Mr. & Mrs. Frank G. Wallace, Mr. & Mrs. George Wallace, and Mr. & Mrs. Fred Wallace were Mrs. Bess Wallace Truman's brothers and sisters-in-law. Miss Ethel Noland, Mrs. Roy Davis Hornbuckle, and Mrs. Talbot Romine were President Truman's cousins. John C. Truman was his nephew. Mrs. Bess Wallace Truman was the aunt of David Wallace and Marian Wallace.

Graham Surgeon" (personal White House physician), "R. Adm. Robert L. Dennison Navy" (Truman's Naval Aide), and "Brig Gen. Robert Landry Air" (Truman's Air Force Aide).

        The Theory of Positrons; Space-Time Approach to Quantum Electrodynamics.Lancaster: American Physical Society, 1949. First edition.

      A fine copy, in unrestored original wrappers, of these two famous papers in which the author first announced the celebrated Feynman diagrams and the Feynman rules for quantum electrodynamics.<br/><br/> "The greatest physicist of his generation, ranking with Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein, Feynman reformulated quantum mechanics to put it on a secure logical foundation in which classical mechanics is naturally incorporated (in a manner reminiscent of the way Newtonian gravitational theory is incorporated within the general theory of relativity) ... He developed the path integral approach to quantum physics (using Feynman diagrams), from which he derived the clearest and most complete version of quantum electrodynamics (QED), which stands alongside the general theory of relativity as one of the two most successful and well-established theories in physics." (Gribbin).<br/><br/> "Feynman's two papers on QED were completed in April and May 1949. In the first one, <i>The Theory of Positrons</i>, he carefully explains the meaning of his digrams beginning with their application to the Schrödinger equation. Application to the Dirac equation yields an interpretation of the positron in which Dirac's original hole theory is no longer needed. The second paper <i>Space-Time Approach to Quantum Electrodynamics</i>, contains the Feynman rules and explains their usage. By these rules, computations for specific problems are simplified so much that Schwinger, much later, said: 'Like the silicon chip of more recent years, the Feynman diagram was bringing computation to the masses'." (Brandt). <br/><br/>. In: The Physical Review, Second Series, Volume 76, Number 6, pp. 749-759; 769-789. The entire issue offered here in wrappers, very fine with no repairs or stamps. Rare in such good condition

        Two Letters from Horton Foote

      Washington DC. 1949. Two Autographed Letters Signed from two-time Academy Award-winning screenwriter and playwright Horton Foote. Both fine except for two holes along the margins of each letter (affecting a total of three words) where they were placed in a binder. The letters are dated August 31, 1949, and September 6, 1949, shortly before Foote's returned from Washington DC, where he ran an acting school with his wife and his friend, Vincent Donehue. The letters are addressed to "Arnold," likely L. Arnold Weisseberg, a theater lawyer with whom Foote had consulted in the past. In them he mentions the tough time had in running the school, his upcoming visit to New York, and his new play which he wants Weisseberg and actress Judith Evelyn to read. The unnamed play is The Chase, a smashing success that opened at The Playhouse Theater in 1952 with Jose Ferrer directing, and signaled Foote's return to Broadway. An interesting pair of letters from one of America's premiere stage and film writers who was then on the verge of success. .

        [The Second World War, in Spanish] Memorias

      Barcelona, Los Libros de nos Tiempo, , [1949]. La Segunda Guerra Mundial. Volumen I, II [publisher&#39;s samples or blads]. 2 volumes, octavo. Original wrappers, partly unopened. Plates, maps. Very good. Two sections of the first two volumes of the Spanish edition produced as salesmen&#39;s samples. Both signed "Winston S. Churchill" and dated 1949. Unmarked as such, but from the library of Emery Reves, Churchill&#39;s literary agent. Reves had been instrumental in promoting Churchill&#39;s pre-War international profile by the world-wide syndication of many of his prophetic articles during the late &#39;thirties. Their association blossomed again after the War when Reves negotiated the sale of the US rights for The Second World War, and purchased the international rights himself, selling serialization to twenty-seven newspapers across the globe and securing book rights in eleven European countries. Churchill said of this feat, "I am sure that no one could have done it except Reves who buzzed around the world for nearly a year making contracts." They subsequently worked closely together on the book itself, Reves having what Martin Gilbert has described as "considerable editorial input". José Janés, the editor of this series in Spain, was one of those who was early to sign a contract with Reves. The Spanish edition was evidently also issued in fascicules, "part issue", with tokens which could be redeemed, on completion of the volume, for the binding. By way of promotion, the wraps of the second fascicle have a crossword competition the prize for which was a complete set of the Memorias once issued.

        Portrait photograph, 1941

      Ottawa: Karsh, , 1949. Large gelatin silver print. Presented in handmade black and moongold frame. Framed size: 580 x 700 mm 510×402 mm. Deep and strongly contrasted studio print. Karsh&#39;s most famous image. Yousuf Karsh (1908&#150;2002), the Canadian photographer of Armenian heritage known as Karsh of Ottawa, is widely regarded as one of the most famous and accomplished portrait photographers of all time. Born in Turkey during the Armenian genocide, Karsh fled with his family to Syria. His parents sent him to live with his uncle, a photographer in Quebec, Canada, who arranged for him to apprentice with the portrait photographer John Garo in Boston, United States. Karsh returned to Canada and established a studio on Sparks Street in Ottawa, Ontario, close to Canada&#39;s seat of government. Canadian Prime Minister Mackenzie King discovered Karsh and arranged introductions with visiting dignitaries for portrait sittings. Karsh&#39;s work attracted the attention of varied celebrities, but his place in history was sealed on 30 December 1941 when he photographed Winston Churchill after Churchill gave his famous "Some chicken, some neck" speech to the Canadian House of Commons in Ottawa.The image of Churchill brought Karsh international prominence, and is claimed to be the most reproduced photographic portrait in history. The story is often told of how Karsh created his famous portrait. Churchill, the British prime minister, had just addressed the Canadian Parliament and Karsh was there to record one of the century&#39;s great leaders. "He was in no mood for portraiture and two minutes were all that he would allow me as he passed from the House of Commons chamber to an anteroom," Karsh wrote in Faces of Our Time. "Two niggardly minutes in which I must try to put on film a man who had already written or inspired a library of books, baffled all his biographers, filled the world with his fame, and me, on this occasion, with dread."Churchill marched into the room scowling, "regarding my camera as he might regard the German enemy." His expression suited Karsh perfectly, but the cigar stuck between his teeth seemed incompatible with such a solemn and formal occasion. "Instinctively, I removed the cigar. At this the Churchillian scowl deepened, the head was thrust forward belligerently, and the hand placed on the hip in an attitude of anger." The image captured Churchill and the Britain of the time perfectly &#150; defiant and unconquerable. Churchill later said to him, "You can even make a roaring lion stand still to be photographed." As such, Karsh titled the photograph, The Roaring Lion. Karsh went on to photograph many of the great and celebrated personalities of his generation. Journalist George Perry wrote in The Sunday Times that "when the famous start thinking of immortality, they call for Karsh of Ottawa." Karsh published 15 books of his photographs, which include brief descriptions of the sessions, during which he would ask questions and talk with his subjects to relax them as he composed the portrait. Some famous subjects photographed by Karsh were Albert Einstein, Albert Schweitzer, Alexander Calder, Andy Warhol, Audrey Hepburn, Clark Gable, Dwight Eisenhower, Ernest Hemingway, Fidel Castro, Jacqueline Kennedy, Frank Lloyd Wright, General Pershing, George Bernard Shaw, Georgia O&#39;Keeffe, Grey Owl, Helen Keller, Humphrey Bogart, Indira Gandhi, John F. Kennedy, Laurence Olivier, Marian Anderson, Madame Chiang Kai-Shek, Muhammad Ali, Pablo Casals, Pandit Nehru, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, Paul Robeson, Joan Baez, Peter Lorre, Picasso, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Pope Pius XII, Pope John Paul II, Princess Elizabeth, Princess Grace, Prince Rainier of Monaco, Robert Frost, Ruth Draper, Field Marshal Lord Alanbrooke, the rock band Rush and of course his most famous portrait subject, Winston Churchill. Karsh said "My chief joy is to photograph the great in heart, in mind, and in spirit, whether they be famous or humble." His work is in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Canada, New York&#39;s Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan Museum of Art, George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film, Bibliothèque nationale de France, the National Portrait Gallery in London, the National Portrait Gallery of Australia and many others. Library and Archives Canada holds his complete collection, including negatives, prints and documents. His photographic equipment was donated to the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa.
