"[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." Wikipedia Pinza (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).

        The World Crisis

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1949 - This is a collector grade copy of the first abridged and revised edition, third and final printing of Churchill's history of the First World War in the dust jacket unique to this printing. Churchill's history - which he titled "The World Crisis" - was originally published between 1923 and 1931. Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the front. He served as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915. After the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his masterwork - originally published in six volumes between 1923 and 1931 - far exceeds this purpose. This important edition covering the war years 1911-1918 is not just an abridgement. It incorporates revisions by Churchill with new material, including a whole new chapter on the Battle of the Marne, as well as a new introduction. The U.S. edition preceded the British, making it the true first edition. There were three printings of the U.S. first abridged and revised edition - 1931, 1942, and 1949. All three are quite scarce in the original dust jackets. Here is the third printing, with a black dust jacket unique to this printing that prominently features a famous wartime photo of Churchill by Yousuf Karsh on the front face. A large book and quality production, it is 866 pages with fold-out maps and illustrations, bound in an attractive, vertically scored red cloth. This is a beautiful, near fine plus copy in a near fine dust jacket. The red cloth binding is square, tight, and immaculately clean with nicely rounded spine. The only exterior flaws noted are lightly bumped upper corners. The contents are notably bright with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. All fold-out maps and illustrations are present and pristine. We note only a trace of barely discernible soiling to the otherwise bright page edges. The black dust jacket of this edition proved particularly susceptible to wear and scuffing, perhaps owing to the thin paper of the dust jacket (which was printed black on white paper), and the size and weight of the book. This dust jacket is near fine with perhaps the best spine presentation we’ve seen; the red spine lettering remains vividly bright with no trace of sunning and there is only minor wear to the spine ends and rear hinge. The dust jacket is unclipped, retaining the original front flap price. The illustrated front face shows only light scuffing with no loss. The sole trivial losses are a .5 inch chip to the upper edge of the rear face and a closed tear with some wrinkling and small chip losses to the rear flap fold. Withal, an exceptionally well-preserved example of a striking and notoriously fragile dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival clear cover.

        La Chirurgie Discipline de la Connaissance (Surgery, Discipline of Knowledge) [WITH ORIGINAL LITHOGRAPH NUMBERED AND HAND-SIGNED BY HENRI MATISSE]

      Nice: La Diane Française, 1949. Limited First edition. Softcover. vg. 1/300. Quarto (9 x 5 3/4"). 509, [9]pp. Uncut and unopened copy. Original printed wrappers with red and black lettering to spine and front cover. The frontispiece is an original lithographic portrait of the author by Henri Matisse, hand-signed and numbered by the artist. Book housed in its original paper covered slipcase.René Leriche (1879-1955) was a celebrated French surgeon generally known in medicine for the syndrome that carries his name, namely the Leriche syndrome in the aorto-iliac occlusive disease. Having his surgical training done under professors Mathieu Jaboulay and Antonin Poncet, his friendship and association with Alexis Carrel and William Halsted have contributed to René Leriche's development as a surgeon, researcher and thinker. Following the footsteps of his mentors, he produced outstanding clinical and academic work which had earned him an eminent reputation among his students and colleagues. Surgeons such as Jean Kunlin, Jao Cid dos Santos, Michael DeBakey, René Fontaine and others came to study and learn from him. These future generations of surgeons would themselves bring much contribution to the understanding and treatment of vascular diseases and medicine in general. René Leriche pioneered medicine with his research and ideas. His assiduous work of teaching, research and clinical practice made his influence last to our present. Leriche was also a flamboyant character who enjoyed French cuisine and fine wine. He had a fine collection of art (one of his patients was his friend Henri Matisse). This landmark monograph on surgery as a discipline of knowledge is complete with its original lithograph by Matisse, hand-signed by the artist in pencil at lower left margin, and numbered at lower right margin. One of 300 copies on Vélin paper, of which this is number 282.Slipcase age-toned, partly rubbed along edges, ana with closed tear at upper margin of back cover. Minor creasing along spine.

      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.

        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. .

        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. - 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. 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 J [Attributes: Signed Copy]
