        Typed Letter Signed [TLS]

      Princeton: np. First edition. nb. Very Good. IMPORTANT LETTER BY EINSTEIN ON HIS INCLUSIVE VISION FOR WORLD PEACE. Florence Baldwin, on behalf the National Citizen's Committee for United Nations Day, wrote to Einstein on August 14, 1950, asking his permission to use statements attributed to him in the promotional material for United Nations Day, which was to be celebrated on October 24, 1950. Specifically, Baldwin requested that Einstein approve the use of the text: Albert Einstein says: "The support of the United Nations by the World's free peoples may avert a World War." Here is a a great American. A great citizen of the world. A man who thinks deeply about problems of war and peace. Here is what he says: "The United Nations was established to help avert another World War. Whatever its other purposes - and they are many, and it has served them admirably - that is the purpose to which the people look with the most fervent hope. "This hope has been buoyed by the prompt action of the United Nations in resisting aggression. This action, if followed by further strengthening of the United Nations by the world's free peoples... could result in averting a third World War." So speaks a man who appreciates - as few can - what the horror of an Atomic War could be. Einstein's letter in response, typed on Einstein's Mercer Street, Princeton letterhead, is dated August 15, 1950, and reads in full: My dear Miss Baldwin: I received your letter of August 14th. I am ready to testify that the United Nations represent my only hope in the attempt to overcome the present dangerous international situation. On the other hand, I cannot approve everything the United Nations have done and have omitted to do. There are also implications in the proposed statement which are, in my opinion, disadvantageous for a peaceful solution of the present crisis. I am alluding to the passus "The support of the U.N. by the world's free people can avert a World War." The Nations who have to collaborate in a peaceful solution are not only the "free people." Such expression is a subtle form for the exclusion of a part of the members of the U.N., the collaboration of whom is indispensable for the achievement of the goal. For those reason [sic] I am unable to sign the statement you have submitted to me. Sincerely yours, [signed] A. Einstein After the Second World War, Einstein was deeply concerned about the possibility of nuclear war and was committed to working for solutions for world peace. While he supported much of the work of the U.N., he believed there would ultimately have to be a world government to achieve the goal of "one world" with shared interest in its preservation. As he concluded in his speech to the U.N. General Assembly in 1947, "The United Nations now and world Government eventually must serve one single goal the guarantee of the security, tranquillity, and the welfare of all mankind." It is not surprising, then, that Einstein objected to the exclusionary nature of the quote Baldwin cited. Einstein was emphatic that a future world war could only be achieved if every country had a voice and stake in the United Nations. Included with Einstein's letter are carbons of Baldwin's correspondence with Einstein (with notes - presumably by Baldwin - in pencil), including her initial letter and her follow-up letter (where she notes in pencil that after visiting with Einstein on August 31 in Princeton he still refused to grant permission to use his quotes), a copy of the intended press release (both as a carbon and a page mock-up), and a carbon of promotional text by Eleanor Roosevelt. One page, 8.5 x 11, on Einstein's blind-stamped personal letterhead, August 15, 1950. Generally fine, with some light edge toning, and a crease to the lower right corner. Handsomely presented in a museum-quality frame with UV-protected glass alongside an Einstein portrait and nameplate. Additional related materials housed in custom three-quarter morocco box. An excellent letter revealing Einstein's deep conviction about the necessity for a united world in the quest to achieve world peace.

        29 eigenh. Mitteilungen und eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Dix"), dav. zwei mit Federzeichnung. O. O., [um 1950].

      1950. Verschiedene Formate. Der sehr flüchtig geschriebene Brief wohl an die Geigerin Hanni Rocco (1896-1990), die Otto Dix in den 1940er Jahren in der Künstlerkolonie auf der Höri kennengelernt und die zusammen mit ihrer Freundin Maria Proells bis 1953 in Hemmenhofen gelebt hatte: "Wenn Du Arbeiten von mir [verkaufen?] willst wende Dich an Galerie Dr. Klihm [...] Erlaß mir im Angesicht meiner Faulheit und meiner massenhaften Post weiteren Schmus [...]". Die Postkarte, auf die Otto Dix ein kleines Mädchen mit einer Blume zeichnete, ist am Oberrand signiert. Die Adresseite mit Wünschen zum neuen Jahr, darunter die Unterschrift des Künstlers- Die teilweise recht kurzen Mitteilungen (drei mit der Anrede "Liebe Kleine" und zwei mit eh. Unterschrift) sind wohl an Roccos Lebensgefährtin, die Pianistin und Malerin Maria Proelss (1892-1962), gerichtet und betreffen Ankündigungen von Besuchen, verschiedene Bitten u. a., vereinzelt wird auch "Fräulein Rocco" erwähnt. Textträger sind teilw. beschnittene Blätter, darunter 3 Feldpostbriefe und 2 Fragmente von Zigarettenschachteln.

        10 eigenh. Briefe, Brief- und Postkarten. Radolfzell, Hemmenhofen und o. O., 1950 bis 1968.

      1950. Zusammen 13¾ SS. auf 10 Bll. Gr.-4to und qu.-8vo. An seinen Biographen Otto Conzelmann, den Herausgeber zahlreicher Dix betreffender Werke, vielfach in Ausstellungs- bzw. Veröffentlichungsfragen. A) "[...] Falls L[utz] & M[aier] die Kassler Kollektion nicht will / Ich weiß nicht, ob man im Osten Wert drauf legt dortliegendes Ost-Geld zu nehmen, ich glaube daß ihnen Devisen lieber sind. Dr. Passarge [d. i. Walter P., Leiter der Kunsthalle Mannheim] dem ich wegen der Kasseler Kollektion schrieb, meint er wolle 1951 eine große Schau der ganzen Entwicklung zeigen. Das wäre also / I. die Nationalgalerie / II. Moritzburg in Halle und III. Mannheim. Das gibt auch wieder eine komplizierte Organisationsarbeit [...]" (18. I. 1950). - B) "[...] Wir haben keine Neujahrsfreude gehabt, denn Nelly ist schwer erkrankt und mußte am Sylvester nach Singen ins Krankenhaus fortgebracht werden [und verstarb zwei Tage darauf]. Dr. Löffler schrieb mir daß er gern das Buch von Melichar = 'Überwindung des Modernismus' [hätte]. Da Sie es wahrscheinlich in Stuttgart besser kaufen können wäre ich Ihnen dankbar wenn Sie es ihm schickten [...]" (7. I. 1955). - C) Über den ungarischen Maler Rudolf Diener-Dénes: "[...] Die Bilder von Diener erinnern mich an den Stil meiner Arbeiten in den frühen 20iger Jahren. Ich habe auch damals versucht die Wirklichkeit in präzisen Formen u. in wenigen Farben schwarz weiß braun grau auszudrücken. Aber auch das tragischgroteske gemischt mit dem erotischen deutet auf eine innere Verwandtschaft mit mir hin [...]" (27. II. 1964). - D) "[...] Ich malte ein Aquarell Roussillon in Totalansicht von links. Das Blatt ist längst verkauft weiß nicht mehr, wer es hat. 'Vaucluse' ist aus der Erinnerung in Dresden auf den Stein gezeichnet [...]" (6. X. 1964). - E) Über seinen bevorstehenden 75. Geburtstag: "[...] Ich muß am 20. Nov. nach Dresden u. Gera, denke daß ich am 28. zurück bin. Am 2. Dez. ist hier ein Empfang im Hause, aber am 1. Dez ein feines Essen mit nahen Freunden in der Alten Rheinmühle in Büsingen. Sie sind dazu eingeladen[...] Wir kommen am 7. November nach Stuttgart wo am 8. ein Essen bei Herrn Kießinger stattfindet, darauf Ausstellungseröffnung um 18 Uhr und dann Premiere des russischen Staatszirkus [...]" (12. X. 1966). - F) Verärgert über einen Zeitungsbericht zur Gesamtschau seiner Werke in Hamburg: "[...] Saumäßig, so eine Kritik, ob das eine Neonazischweinerei ist? man weiß nie, von woher es wieder losgeht da ja Nazismus keine Parteiangelegenheit ist sondern eine Charaktereigenschaft der Deutschen (vielen Deutschen) [...]" (16. I. 1967). - G) Den Versand einiger Werke betreffend: "[...] Wenn Sie nicht alle Fotos schicken (auch die welche Sie von mir haben) geht es überhaupt nicht. Sie schreiben z. B. 'Felsen auf Sardinien' da gibt es mindestens 3 Stück oder mehr. Ich bin gerade beim Malen (Gott sei Dank wieder mal) und kann das Zeug nicht machen [...]" (12. IX. 1967). - H: "[...] Besten Dank für Ihren Brief. Jetzt weiß ich nun ganz genau daß ich niemals in England ausstellen darf [...]" (22. X. 1968). - Meist gelocht.

        Ohrbach's department store in Los Angeles, circa early 1950s (Two original design photographs)

      N.p.: N.p., 1950. Two vintage black and white photographs advertising the legendary Ohrbach's department store in the Wilshire Prudential Insurance Company building (today home of the Screen Actors Guild). An strong example the apex of its mid-century design in Los Angeles. Stamped on the verso by Woro Studio, the agency who shot and struck the photographs for the store's use at Ohrbach's was a moderately-priced department store with a merchandising focus primarily on clothing and accessories. From its modest start in 1923, Ohrbach's expanded dramatically after World War II and opened numerous branch locations in the metro areas of New York, New Jersey and Los Angeles. The growth of the fashion industry in California encouraged the company's expansion to the state, and the firm employed the services of a buying office in Los Angeles as early as 1939, and opened its own office in 1945 In 1948, Ohrbach's leased three floors and the mezzanine in a wing of the Prudential Insurance Company building, designed by Welton Becket and William Wurdeman, on Wilshire Boulevard's Miracle Mile. The success of the Miracle Mile store led the firm to open another branch in Downtown Los Angeles in 1953, when it acquired the twelve-story Milliron's building at 5th and Broadway. 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm).

        Equilibrium Points in N-Person Games

      1950 - NASH, John. "Equilibrium Points in N-Person Games." IN: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Volume 36, Number 1, pp. 48-49. Easton, Pennsylvania: Mack Printing, January 15, 1950-December 15, 1950. Large octavo, contemporary black cloth. $1600.First edition of the complete journal volume containing the first publication of the Nash Equilibrium, which forever changed the fields of game theory and economics.Published shortly after Nash received his Ph.D. in 1950, this is the first and most influential of only three articles directly derived from Nash’s thesis research. As a graduate student at Princeton, Nash encountered game theory, which had been recently articulated by John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern. While their theory dealt with two-person zero-sum games, or "pure rivalries," Nash explored rivalries with the possibility of mutual gain, where each player acts independently and no outside authority makes sure that players stick to predetermined rules. His idea that any game such as this has one equilibrium point became known as the "Nash equilibrium," a founding concept in analyzing economic behavior, and the one for which he won the Nobel Prize in 1994. Nash’s devastating struggle with schizophrenia, which propelled him out of elite mathematics for decades, was chronicled in Sylvia Nasar’s award-winning biography, A Beautiful Mind, and by the film, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2002. Ex-libris Library of Congress, with expected notations and a single duplicate stamp.Text generally fine. A handsome and extremely desirable copy of one of the most significant mathematical papers of the 20th century. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
