        LA CASA ENCENDIDA. Con dibujos de José Caballero.

      Eds. Cultura Hispáncia, Madrid 1949 - 1ª ed. 13x20. 111pp. 4h. Ilustraciones a toda plana. Rústica Huellas de óxido, bisagra posterior reparada, lomo amarronado, pero completo. Dedicatoria autógrafa al poeta cubano Agustín Pi, fechada en 1949. En ese año Rosales, Leopoldo Panero, Foxá y otros poetas de la España franquista visitan Cuba, como parte de una gira americana. Con suma injusticia, ya que Rosales había intentado proteger a Lorca en su casa familiar, el partido comunista le había identificado como el principal responsable de la muerte del poeta granadino, y en La Habana fue recibido con abucheos y huevos en sus recitales poéticos; pero entre los poetas del grupo Orígenes, sí fue bien recibido. Este está valorado como el libro más importante de Rosales, y esta tirada en tela es inusual. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 4 Euros.

        Set design for George Balanchine's Ballet Imperial performed by the Sadler's Wells Ballet, London.

      1949 - Pen and black ink. Title, initialled and dated by Eugene Berman. With a crossed-out costume design in pen and black ink, and watercolour on reverse. 292 x 228 mm. .5kg. Near fine; light browning to paper; residue of mounting glue to verso, with an additional mark affecting the costume sketch; remains of tissue mounting tabs on top edge of verso. An original set design by Eugene Berman for George Balanchine's Ballet Imperial performed by the Sadler's Wells Ballet at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London in 1950. The design is a loosely worked ink sketch but with plenty of detail. A series of ornate Rococo structures form an architectural courtyard. Angels trumpet, an eagle spreads its wings, clouds roll and the sun bursts through. The ink sketch on the reverse is a design for the costume of a male dancer, heightened with watercolour. It is struck through with a cross in pencil. Eugene Berman (1899-1972) was a leading Neo-Romantic painter and stage designer, becoming one of the world's most acclaimed theatrical designers of his time. He was an expert draughtsman and his set designs, with their jewel-like quality, are highly prized. He was born in Russia but emigrated first to Paris, and then to America. His career had two parallel strands, one painting and one theatre design, although the two overlapped stylistically. Berman was heavily influenced by nineteenth-century Romanticism and by the architectural ruins encountered on his travels to Mexico, Egypt and Italy. His images have a sense of melancholy, of the sublime and of the theatrical. Berman had become fascinated by theatre design since his youth having attended the Imperial Ballet in Saint Petersburg and Diaghilev's Ballet Russe in Paris. He first worked with the choreographer George Balanchine in 1936 when they both contributed to A. Everett Austin's Hartford Music Festival. Berman's designs for the festival were his first realised stage designs. The relationship continued with Berman designing many ballets for Balanchine over the next few decades, including Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme in 1944, Giselle in 1946 and Roma in 1955. He designed the Imperial Ballet again in 1952 for La Scala Ballet, Milan. He ended his stage design career as he had began, working with Balanchine on Pulcinella in 1972. [Tuggle, Robert.

        Modern Arms and Free Men: A Discussion of the Role of Science in Preserving Democracy (SIGNED)

      Simon and Schuster, New York 1949 - First Edition. Advance Copy INSCRIBED to Stanford University President Wallace Sterling "To Wallace Sterling/with cordial regards/Vannevar Bush." Octavo; (xiv), 273, (1)pp. Laid in is a 2 1/4" x 4" card ('Advance Copy/Publication Date, Nov. 21') along with a publisher's reply post card. Very Good in publisher's red cloth stamped in gold on black background on spine and upper board. The book's spine is lightly sunned with a scratch to spine lettering; the bright price-clipped dust jacket has light extremity wear and a few closed tears. As chairman of the National Defense Research Committee and later director of the U.S. Office of Scientific Research and Development, Vannevar Bush coordinated the activities of ~ six thousand leading American scientists in the application of science to warfare. In his 1945 report to President Truman, Bush called for an expansion of government support for science, and urged the creation of the National Science Foundation. He has been called the "Architect of the military-industrial complex," but he was fearful of military control of scientific research, and this book was his warning that the militarization of American science would be harmful. Wallace Sterling, president of Stanford University from 1949-1968, oversaw the school's growth to become the internationally recognized "Harvard of the West" (earning Sterling the sobriquet "Stanford's man with the Midas touch" for his fundraising ability). Stanford Industrial Park, which eventually received great government support, was founded under Sterling and Provost Professor Frederick Terman (who had been Bush's student at MIT).

        IAN FLEMING~ALS SIGNED, TO SPY ANTHONY TERRY, author of Casino Royale

      0, 0 - Autograph Letter Signed. Important Association Autographed letter signed by Ian Fleming as ¿Ian F.¿, one page, 8" x 10", no date. Note to ¿Tony,¿ journalist and spy Anthony Terry of the British Press Centre. Age toned, otherwise fine condition, with two filing holes to the left edge. Accompanied by an iconic glossy black and white photo of Ian Fleming, 8¿ x 10¿. The letter will come with a Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA Fleming writes an important association letter to Anthony Terry (Tony), just below a typed note with information regarding currency devaluation in Yugoslavia, in full: ¿Tony, Many thanks for the affairs flow¿but please be careful on facts as otherwise I get battered by correspondents. Ian F.¿. Fleming ran an intelligence agency called ¿Mercury¿ which used foreign correspondents working for the Sunday Times as spies (a parent company of Kemsley Newspapers). The former SIS and MI6 agent Anthony Cavendish described the relationship in his book, ¿Inside Intelligence¿. He wrote: at the end of the war a number of MI6 agents were sent abroad under the cover of newspapermen. Indeed the Kemsley Press allowed many of their foreign correspondents to cooperate with MI6 and even took on MI6 operatives as foreign correspondents. Terry had been recruited by Fleming in 1949 as an intelligence officer and posted to various European countries under the guise of a foreign correspondent with the Sunday Times. Fleming, in his capacity as editor of the ¿Sunday Times,¿ had employed Terry as a full-time correspondent in Berlin. Terry, who had previously worked as an army intelligence office, proved to be a valuable asset. Simultaneously with his journalism, and with Fleming¿s tacit approval, Terry worked as an agent for the Secret Intelligence Service. When the war ended, Anthony honed his investigative skills on suspected Nazi war criminals. His knowledge of German dialects came from having spent much of his youth in pre-war Berlin where his father was attached to the British embassy. This, along with an intimate familiarity with Nazi military and civilian officialdom, made him a valuable member of the Allied teams preparing evidence for the Nuremberg war crimes trials. Yet journalistically he was a giant, regarding himself as a kind of garde mobile who undertook jobs far from his bureau: Budapest in 1956, Biafra in 1970. He once cut his way (machete in hand) through the South American jungle in search of war criminals who had evaded Nuremberg. A fantastic clandestine autographed letter, scarce as most letters from Fleming are typed with little or no penned notes, letters or memos. One will never really know whether the context of the letter was in ¿code¿ or had face value content, but either way the letter is a wonder association piece between both men during the cold war. Provenance: The piece will come with a letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA A great set which would present beautifully framed together! [Attributes: First Edition]

        THE ART OF WORLDLY WISDOM

      Prairie City: The Decker Press, 1949. Cloth and boards. Boards a shade tanned at edges, endsheets tanned at gutters, but a very good or better copy. First edition, first issue. Decker's disappearance derailed the formal publication of this book, and though an edition of five hundred copies was printed, only a portion of the edition was bound up. Remaining sheets were repackaged on two later occasions (1953 and 1980) under different imprints for distribution. This copy has the mimeographed errata slip laid in, and is signed by Rexroth at a later date, with the somewhat disingenuous statement: "one of possibly 30 copies bound for review" and his pictograph chop.
