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

      La Diane Française, Nice 1949 - 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. Top edge slightly stained. Text in French. Slipcase in overall good- to good, wrappers in very good, interior in fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Intelligent Investor

      HARPER & BROS, NY 1949 - Extremely scarce first edition 1949 C-A. THIS COPY IS A LATER PRINTING PRINTED IN 1949 a classic author on the Stock Market. Book has general shelf wear, rubbed extremities, lightly bumped corners, previous owner name and date on inner front board, "Windgate E. Hannah 8/28/51" Mr. Hannah was associated with Waynesville, N.C. Kirchofer & Arnold Associates, Inc. Investment Securiies, Insurance Building Raleigh N.C., New York & Charlotte, age toned endpages, slight foxing on endpages. Dust jacket has general wear, scotch tape on inner spine, chip in top front edge, creased, closed tears, sun faded spine, rear top edge has a 2.5" X 1" tear. 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. 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: 276 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Price Paper Bound.... $6.00 Cloth Bound.... $8.00. [Piano-vocal score]

      [New York]: Chappell [PN 757-], 1949. First Edition of the complete work. Fuld p. 54. 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." 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). Pinza was unquestionably the most richly gifted and most accomplished Italian bass of his day..." Desmond Shawe-Taylor in Grove Music Online.

Full mid-blue cloth with titling gilt to upper. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (recto named cast list, verso blank), 1f. (recto description of setting, verso blank)), 1f.

Together with: An attractive photograph of Rodgers, Pinza, and Mary Martin (Nellie Forbush in the first performance of the work) depicting Rodgers at the piano with Pinza and Martin on either side. 239 x 279 mm.

      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.

        South Pacific... Music by Richard Rodgers Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein 2nd Book by Oscar Hammerstein 2nd and Joshua Logan Adapted from James A. Michener's Pulitzer Prize-Winning "Tales of the South Pacific" Book and Musical Numbers Staged by Joshua Logan Scenery and Lighting by Jo Mielziner Costumes by Motley Musical Director Salvatore Dell'Isola Orchestrations by Robert Russell Bennett Vocal Score (Edited by Dr. Albert Sirmay). Price Paper Bound.... $6.00 Cloth Bound.... $8.00. [Piano-vocal score]

      [New York]: Chappell [PN 757-], 1949. First Edition of the complete work. Fuld p. 54. 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." 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). 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.. Quarto. Full mid-blue cloth with titling gilt to upper. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (recto named cast list, verso blank), 1f. (recto description of setting, verso blank)), 1f. (recto table of contents, verso blank), 5-172 pp. With a presentation inscription signed by both composer and lyricist to the noted Italian operatic bass Ezio Pinza (Emile de Becque in the first performance of the work) to free front endpaper: "For Ezio with affection and gratitude from Dick and Oscar," dated "Xmas '49." Together with: An attractive photograph of Rodgers, Pinza, and Mary Martin (Nellie Forbush in the first performance of the work) depicting Rodgers at the piano with Pinza and Martin on either side. 239 x 279 mm.

        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.

        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.
