        The Sheltering Sky

      London: Lehmann. (1949). The first edition of Bowles's landmark first novel, about three young Westerners encountering the alien culture of North Africa, to their ultimate misfortune. One critic commented that Bowles was "a master of cruelty and isolation and the ironies of the search for meaning in an inadequately understood environment." The encounter with the Other; the limits of not only one's knowledge but most especially the knowledge of the extent of one's ignorance: these form the underlying themes of a novel whose setting is as much a character as the people themselves are. One of the seminal novels of the Beat generation and an influential book in the decades since. Printed in an edition of only 4000 copies. Upper corners bumped, sunning to board edges; near fine in a very good dust, spine-tanned dust jacket with a tear to the lower front spine fold and a few small edge chips. A cheaply produced postwar book, this is a better than usual copy. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 8vo, on printed personalized stationery with an imprint of "Fantasmagoria," Big Sur, California, July 31, 1949

      To Bruno Adriani, Miller mentions French author Arthur Rimbaud and Hermann Hesse's classic, "Siddhartha." "Do you recall ever seeing a photograph of Rimbaud's mother? Mermod in Lausanne are bringing out the (2) parts of my work on Rimbaud in French, this year. Letter from H. L. Mermod advises no photo of the mother in the famous Matarosso Collection. Yet I saw one of her (Vitalie) in an old issue of 'Labyrinthe' (Mastarosso Coll too!). Wonder if this was a mistake of the printer? I suppose Mermod wishes to include some photos in the book. Roger Cornaz is doing the translation. Did you ever know Gerhart Muench (composer & pianist) from Dresden? He's in Altadema now and invites me frequently - rather amazing letters. Just read Hesse's 'Siddhartha' in French...Depresses me tremendously....." He signs, "Henry Miller."

        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 .

        1949 Inaugural guest list penned by Harry Truman - He writes "Harry" once, and "Truman" four times!

      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. President Truman has personally added 10 names to the list, never signing his name, but penning "Harry" once and "Truman" four times: "Mrs. Truman" (wife), "Margaret Truman" (daughter), "Maj. Gen. & Mrs. Ralph E. Truman " (cousin), "Col. & Mrs. Louis Truman" (second cousin), "Maj. Gen. Harry H. Vaughan Army" (friend since 1917), "Brig. Gen Wallace H. 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. .

        Physical Principles Involved in Transistor Action. WITH: The Theory of p-n Junctions in Semiconductors and p-n Junction Transistors. Et al

      American Telephone and Telegraph Company New York: American Telephone and Telegraph Company. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION of two landmark journals documenting the revolutionary invention of the transistor: the April 1949 issue of The Bell System Technical Journal containing the first description of the invention (published simultaneously in The Physical Review), and the famous July 1949 "Semiconductor Issue" dedicated entirely to the discuss of the transistor and semiconductor devices. The entire 1949 volume offered. "In the 1930s, Bell Labs scientists were trying to use ultrahigh frequency waves for telephone communications, and needed a more reliable detection method than the vacuum tube, which proved incapable of picking up rapid vibrations... John Bardeen, Walter Brattain and William Shockley spearheaded the Bell Labs effort to develop a new means of amplification," developing, by 1948, a novel device that would effectively amplify and control electric signals. "At roughly half an inch high, the first transistor was huge by today's standards, when 7 million transistors can fit onto a single silicon chip. But it was the very first solid state device capable of doing the amplification work of a vacuum tube, earning Bardeen, Brattain and Shockley the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1956. More significantly, it spawned an entire industry and ushered in the Information Age, revolutionizing global society" (The American Physical Society).The 1956 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded jointly to William Shockley, John Bardeen and Walter Brattain "for their researches on semiconductors and their discovery of the transistor effect".Also included is Claude Shannon's Communication Theory of Secrecy Systems (pp. 656-715).BARDEEN, J., and BRATTAIN, W. H. Physical Principles Involved in Transistor Action. In The Bell System Technical Journal, Vol. 28, No. 2, April 1949 (pp. 239-277). WITH: BARDEEN, J., and BRATTAIN, W.H., and SHOCKLEY, W., et al.
