        Autograph Letter Signed to James Laughlin

      Octavo. Dated in 1949 from Trieste to publisher James Laughlin of New Directions in Norfolk, Connecticut, enclosing a provisional plan (not present) for a biography of his brother, James Joyce. Accompanied by a carbon of a letter from Laughlin to Joyce, expressing his enthusiasm for the project. Joyce writes: "I enclose a provisional plan. As a matter of fact I don't see very far ahead but as I write things come back to me. The style, I'm afraid, will always be reminiscent like the pages I sent (except when I quote conversations from my diary), and digressive when I think I have some interpretation to offer. The pages I have sent you are approximately half of the first chapter. The others will be much longer, except, perhaps, the last." New Directions did not publish the book, but Viking Press eventually did. .

Oblong post-binder, measuring 19 by 11-1/2 inches, original maroon pebbled cloth gilt. $1600.Vintage catalogue of numerous 4-square house designs, complete with photographs, elevations and floor plans.The construction boom between the two World Wars was fostered by a number of factors, most of them economic.

This vintage catalogue of house designs, published by the 100-year-old leader in the lumber industry, contains over 100 variations of the basic 4-square plan, each with exterior drawing or photograph, elevations, floor plan and cost estimate. Cover stamp of GrossmanÂ’s Building Supply in Billerica, Massachusetts (the basic Cape Cod is among the designs).Moderate creasing and slight chipping, self-wear to original cloth.

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED by the ITALIAN FREUDIAN PSYCHOANALIST EMILIO SERVADIO to the author JOHN HYDE PRESTON, regarding taking the author on as a patient.

      Rome, Italy, October 17th, 1949.. 1949.. Good. - Over 340 words typed on his personal 1-3/8 inch high by 8-7/8 inch wide onion skin stationery. One can assume that Emilio Servadio and John Hyde Preston knew each other for when addressing the author of "Mad Anthony Wayne" and "Revolution 1776" among other books, Emilio Servadio writes that "I was glad to hear your voice on the phone...." John Hyde Preston had apparently left behind some possessions when he'd last stayed in Rome as Dr. Servadio mentions that he has phoned the Inghilterra hotel on Preston's behalf and was told that "everything has been taken away long ago by a friend of yours named 'Marcello".... Was he not the photographer you told me about - a sort of young 'protege' of your wife?" As Preston will be returning to Rome, Dr. Servadio has been looking into the possibilities of putting him up with a family. He goes on to say that "Regarding the analysis, I must let you know that I could not take you immediately, because I am terribly overworked and I have refused not less that [sic] five new cases in the last two weeks.... First of all you should try to settle down agreeably in Rome .... In the meantime it is to be hoped that I will have some 'hole' in my time-table, and be able to take you for three hours a week as planned." Signed "E. Servadio". Folded for mailing with short tears to the edges of the horizontal fold. There are creases to the edges and corners and another short tear to the left edge of the page. <p>The Italian physician and Freudian psychoanalist Emilio Servadio studied music before moving on to the study of law and eventually psychology. A lover of literature, Servadio was drawn to the French avant-garde & symbolist poets. Psychology, particularly the academic psychology of the period, held little interest for him until Freud's "Introduction to Psychoanalysis" stirred deeper feelings. He met and learned from Edoardo Weiss and later collaborated with Weiss to found the Italian Psychoanalytical Society. At the Lucerne Congress in 1934, he presented his paper on "Psychoanalysis and Telepathy" and in 1937 co- founded the "Societa di Metapsichica" (which became the "Societa Italiana di Parasicologia" after the war). Fascinated by metaphysical subjects, Servadio made use of investigative methods to study paranormal phenomena. Servadio was Jewish and he and several colleagues were forced to flee when the Fascist regime enacted racial laws in 1938. Having already been following Indian spiritual practices and possessing a diploma from an Indian University, Servadio moved to India where he came into contact with the religion, symbols and cultures of the people and could further his interest in Yoga and investigate its parallels with psychoanalysis. After his return to Italy in 1946 he, together with Nicola Perrotti and Cesare Musatti, was responsible for the rebirth of Italian psychoanalysis. To understand psychotic states, he experimented with hallucinogens and studied the effects of LSD. "I passed hours in a memorable psychological state of chaos", he wrote, "Today, when a patient talks about depersonalization, neurosis of abandon or persecution fantasies I know what it means." Servadio co-authored with Roberto Cavanna "ESP Experiments with LSD 25 and Psilocylbin: A Methodological Approach", published by the Parapsychology Foundation in 1964. Back in 1952, the renowned Italian film director Federico Fellini experienced the first signs of clinical depression while filming "La Strada" and sought out Emilio Servadio for therapy. Fellini was later attracted to parapsychology and the Turin magician Gustavo Rol introduced him to spiritism and seances. Soon after, Fellini took LSD under Servadio's supervision. His hallucinatory insights and visions subsequently inspired his 1965 film "Juliet of the Spirits". Servadio was a man of many interests and his quest for knowledge led him to join the Freemasons. As a member of the "Monte Sion Har Tzion" lodge he pursued studies on the Jewish-cabalistic tradition. His interest in sexology led to the publication of his "Sex Education" book in 1970, "Psyche and Sexuality" in 1972 and "Sex and Psyche" in 1979. He was an early supporter of sex education in school and spoke on the subject of homosexuality as well as feminine sexuality. Harkening back to his early love of literature and avant-garde poets, at the age of 80, Servadio published his second book of poetry "Poesie d'amore e di Pena". The book was the recipient of several awards and led Servadio to publish several more poetry books.

INSCRIBED but not signed by Frost on the title page: "To the Hockings wherever they are/meditating the wrong Muse." Richard Hocking seems to have been an acquaintance of Frost's during the 1920s and 1930s, having graduated from Harvard in 1928 and earning a Master's there shortly after. When inscribing Christmas greetings, Frost would often not sign his inscription, or at the most simply initial it.

        Remarkable long Typed Letter Signed to My dear Kennedy with lengthy autograph postscript (George Bernard, 1856-1950, Dramatist & Critic)

      1949 - saying that he has "been puzzling over this business of the amalgamation with the 300, which was evidently made without any serious attempt to think it out. Neither we nor Mrs Whitworth provided for the situation which was bound to arise if Mrs Whitworth pressed her privilege. But the disadvantage was more hers than ours, because we had nothing to do but pursue our normal course, whereas she had to attack it . Until we have definitely refused her some specific demand she cannot go to the courts to claim specific performances and damages. And we must avoid a lawsuit, because the bank would probably call in the overdraft if we became involved in litigation . I do not think we can now rely on her failure to supply the expected addition to the membership, because we have accepted her contribution as sufficient by letter her do the Lawrence plays . At all events, let us waive that, and consider what she can claim . Mrs Whitworth is entitled to a certain proportion of the season's plays by simply proposing them . The effect is to set up a dictatorship of Mrs Whitworth plus one supporter over a substantial part of the Society's work and revenue. Such an arrangement could work only with a dictator of supreme talent and tact, and a fairly representative taste in plays; and the fact is that she is breaking down shoews that the tact at least is lacking ." small closed tear in blank right margin at fold Since 1903, Constable had been Shaw's distributor 'on commission'. Shaw did all the contact with Clark's - not easy for them, given Shaw's idiosyncrasies of spelling. The story is splendidly told in Bernard Shaw and his Publishers, edited from his letters by Michael Pharand, 2009. Ackermann was on the point of a 4th edition of his Popular Fallacies. (1st ed., Cassell, 1907). It came out with the imprint London, Old Westminster Press, 1950, who had also printed his Scientific Paradoxes and Problems and their solutions in 1925. Simpkin Marshall, the famous wholesalers, were the sole distributors, so it appears Ackermann followed Shaw's advice. Ackermann was 82 and Shaw 93! [Attributes: First Edition]

        SKI-JUMPING POSTER: 1949 Planica FNR Jugoslavija

      [Ljubljana : Blasnikova tiskarna] . 1949 - Lithograph in colour (slightly stained, soft folds and repaired tears, otherwise in a good condition) 63 x 90 cm (24.8 x 35.4 inches). A rare magnificent well-designed large poster for a ski-jumping competition of 1949 at the legendary ski-jumping field in Planica, the place of 13 world records from 1934.This poster was designed for a world-famous international ski-jumping competition at Planica in the north-west part of Slovenia, at the time the most famous ski-jumping field in the world. The large Bloudek-Rozman ski jumping filed was opened in 1934. As the whole story about the owner of the design is still disputed, the hill was probably designed by Stanko Bloudek, who was engineer, pilot and one of the developers of modern skiing, and the design for the ski-jump was made by Ivan Rozman.In 1934, the year of the opening, the first world record was set, when the Norvegian Birger Ruud set the first world record in Planica with 92 meters. In 1936, in Planica Austrian Sepp Bradl became the first man in history to have officially jumped over one hundred meters. With this results Planica became the leading ski-jumping field in the world, attracting tourist from all over the world and contributing at the development of techniques of ski-jumping. In 1938 two new world records were made and in in the first year of the war, in 1941, five world records. There were no competitions in the next six years. The field reopened in 1947. The year 1949, when this poster was made, was the last year of the first era of the glory of this field. In the next year the field lost a world record for the first time after 14 years. Also a part of the field collapsed and the hill underwent a massive reconstruction. Today Planica is still one of the centers for international ski-jumping competitions.This poster represents one of the legendary images of the Planica ski-jumping field, but is very rare on the market today. A large amount of these posters probably got damaged due to their size. We could only trace two examples in institutions worldwide. References: OCLC Ð 780778681.

        Mosques of Egypt

      1949. First Edition . CRESWELL, K.A.C. The Mosques of Egypt from 21 H. (641) to 1365 H. (1946). Giza (Orman): The Survey of Egypt, 1949 (-1954). Two volumes. Large folio (13 by 17-1/2 inches), original green cloth gilt, patterned endpapers. $5800.First edition, lavishly illustrated with 243 stunning large folio photographic plates of Egyptian building and architectural details, numerous in-text drawings, building plans and elevations, and two large fold “Maps of Cairo Showing Mohammedan Monuments” housed in a rear pocket in Volume I. “The finest piece of book production achieved in Egypt.”“Cairo possesses a most remarkable series of Muslim monuments, running unbroken from the ninth to the nineteenth century. In the latter respect it is unique; other cities, such as Damascus, possess a large number of monuments but some centuries are not represented at all.” “As one surveys the gorgeous monuments of Muslim Egypt one is struck by the grandeur, the beauty and the mysteries of mosques. They represent Art at its best and in its varied aspects. They record the eventful history of those momentous periods. They seem to hide within them secrets which had far-reaching effects on the political and social history of the country as well as on its intellectual and spiritual life throughout the centuries. Indeed the history of the Muslim World in general and Muslim Egypt in particular cannot be properly understood or rightly interpreted unless mosques are thoroughly studied as links in the chain of the past. It is therefore of great advantage to Egypt and to the world to unveil those secrets and reveal them; for mosques were not only places of worship, but also colleges for the study of religious doctrines, philosophical ideas and political theories.” With an introduction and preface dated 1954 laid into Volume I. With a gift inscription to French historian René Huyghe from Egyptian cultural minister Saroite Okasha.A fine copy.

First performed at the Majestic Theatre in New York on April 7, 1949 with Ezio Pinza as Emile de Becque."[South Pacific] premiered in 1949 on Broadway and was an immediate hit, running for 1,925 performances. Rodgers and Hammerstein believed they could write a musical based on Michener's work that would be financially successful and, at the same time, would send a strong progressive message on racism. The original Broadway production enjoyed immense critical and box-office success, became the second-longest running Broadway musical to that point (behind Rodgers and Hammerstein's earlier Oklahoma! (1943)), and has remained popular ever since. After they signed Ezio Pinza and Mary Martin as the leads, Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote several of the songs with the particular talents of their stars in mind. Several of its songs, including "Bali Ha'i", "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair", "Some Enchanted Evening", "There Is Nothing Like a Dame", "Happy Talk", "Younger Than Springtime", and "I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy", have become popular standards. The production won ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Libretto, and it is the only musical production to win Tony Awards in all four acting categories." WikipediaPinza (1892-1957) spent 22 seasons at the Metropolitan Opera, appearing in over 750 performances of 50 operas. "After leaving the Metropolitan, at the age of 56, he began a second career in musical comedy, operetta and musical films, scoring an enormous success on Broadway in South Pacific (1949, Rodgers and Hammerstein). Pinza was unquestionably the most richly gifted and most accomplished Italian bass of his day." Desmond Shawe-Taylor in Grove Music Online. A fine association copy, linking the composer, lyricist, and foremost interpreter of a leading role in one of Rodgers's most enduring Broadway musicals. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
