        Nineteen Eighty-Four

      London: Secker & Warburg,, 1949. Octavo. Original light green cloth, titles to spine in red, red top-stain. With the red dust jacket. Spine and edges of boards a little faded, upper corner bumped. An excellent copy in the jacket that is lightly rubbed and a little creased along the edges with a few nicks and short splits, a minor abrasion to the upper panel, and faded spine panel. First edition, first impression. Copies of the first impression were issued either in green or dark red dust jackets. To judge from surviving examples, this was done in proportions of about two green to one red. The red jackets are far more susceptible to fading, and as a consequence, surviving copies in nice condition are uncommon.

Édition originale. L'un des 100 exemplaires numérotés sur pur chiffon Johannot, les 7 premiers et les 3 "romain" contenant une suite signée sur Chine.

        Tibetan Painted Scrolls

      Rome:: La Libreria Dello Stato ,, 1949. ORIGINAL ITALIAN EDITION (assumed proof). Hardcover. Very Good. An ORIGINAL ITALIAN EDITON from 1949, (and assumed proof from the library of Professor. F.D. Lessing late of UC. Berkeley) of the important early set of three volumes by the Tibetologist Giuseppe Tucci. Volume 1, 328 pages with 89 figure illustrations; Volume 2, 329-727 pages, with figures 90-122 and 16 numbered tables. volume 3: Portfolio of plates, 25 polychrome color, numbered alphabetically, omitting "W" (as is standard in all sets) and 231 sepia monochrome, varying in size on 12.5 by 17 inch leaves. Giuseppe Tucci was Italy's foremost scholar of the East, living in India where he studied Buddhism and Tibet, and organizing several pioneering archaeological digs in the Swat Valley, Ghazni in Afghanistan, the Himalayas and Iran. The first volume of the set covers Tibetan history with an emphasis on gTsang and dBus and the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries. Volume two discusses the 195 tankas reproduced in the 231 plates of the portfolio volume. The third volume is a fold-out cloth portfolio containing the plates themselves. From Professor Lessing's review: "In summary, this work far surpasses anything written before in the wealth of material and in the beauty of reproductions. Furthermore, the author outdistances by far all his predecessors, both as a field worker and as a desk worker ... No future work on Tibetan iconography can be done which would ignore Tucci's research now accessible in convenient form. In brief, this is and will stand as a milestone in the field." Journal of the American Oriental Society, Vol. 74, No. 1 (Jan-Mar., 1954), pp. 40-51. This was issued in an numbered edition of 750. This set, coming from the library of Professor Ferdinand D. Lessing, Professor of Oriental Languages at U.C. Berkeley, was presumably the set used of his lengthy review of 1954, and not being a numbered edition is presumed to be a proof set. Comparison of this set with a numbered edition at the University of Virginia Library Tibetan Collection reveals a greater depth of color in the plates of this edition, and thus would appear to confirm its status as a proof. The 2 book volumes are 17 by 12 inches, and the third portfolio is 20 by 14 inches. The volumes are of red cloth with titles, the contents of all volumes are excellent, the covers of each have some fading and wear at the edges, though this would appear quite normal considering the age and use etc. Volume 1 binding has some cracks at the hinges. The copies at The University of Virginia were similarly worn to the outside.

With greetings! Yours Helene Weigel and 'The Berliner Ensemble'". The Berliner Ensemble is a theatre company established by Brecht and Weigel in Germany in 1949 and still operating today. The troupe visited London during the late summer of 1956, only a few weeks after Brecht's death, where they performed Mother Courage, The Caucasian Chalk Circle and Trumpets and Drums at the Palace Theatre. Critic Michael Billington later recalled it as one of the pivotal moments in post-war British theatre. Though Clark's identity is unknown, he was obviously instrumental in assisting Weigel and her colleagues during this important visit. A very nice presentation.

        The Intelligent Investor: A Book of Practical Counsel

      HARPER & BROTHERS, NEW YORK 1949 - extremely scarce first edition 1949. THIS COPY IS A LATER PRINTING PRINTED IN 1949 WITH from a classic author on the Stock Market. Minimal wear to boards, gilt title on spine, lightly age-toned pages. However, dust jacket sun faded, some loss of head of spine and brittleness, fore edge of jacket ford chipped, creased edges, some closed tears. The inner flap of dust jacket has a $3.50 price; number on bottom of front inner flap No. 7553, and the number on the rear of jacket bottom corner is No. 3086. They did however print a 'letter-letter' printing code on the copyright page-a standard procedure for Harper at that time, and known to Bookseller's as the "Harper Printing Code'. The first letter was the month of the year ('A' being January, 'B' February etc) and the second was the Year. Google Harper Printing Code and you will find a table showing the letters Harper used until they abandoned the system. In this case 'D-Y' means April, 1949. The Book was copyrighted in May, 1949, and obviously the original print run done up in the month before. If you look for other copies available on the web, you will see a number of them that claim the letter code of the First Printing should be 'A-Z'. That is false, as a perusal of the Harper Printing Code table you just Googled will show you that A-Z is the printing code for a January, 1950 Printing. Also note that some later printings now available for sale (including A-Z copies and F-Y copies among others), will use the word First Edition in the description of the Book offered, sometimes without indicating that the copy is, in fact, a later printing. That is because the SECOND EDITION did not come out until 1959, so that technically speaking, all PRINTINGS before then are FIRST EDITIONS, even though they might also be LATER PRINTINGS. All PRINTINGS of the Original Edition are collectible, but the most desirable is the First Printing (which this is). There is some confusion about this sometimes, as we Booksellers typically use First Edition and First Printing pretty much interchangeably much of the time. DATE PUBLISHED: 1949 EDITION: K-Y 276 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
