        Orpheus [Orphée] (Original British quad poster for the 1950 film)

      Paris: Films de France, 1950. Vintage British quad poster for the classic 1950 film. French surrealist director, poet, and artist Jean Cocteau explored fantasies within most of his films such as "The Blood of a Poet" (1932) and "La Belle et la Bette" (1946). With "Orphée," he took on the myth of Orpheus entering the Underworld to persuade death to restore the departed Eurydice to life. The British quad design features some of Cocteau's artwork that would be used again in similar posters for 1960's Le Testament d'Orphée. Silk screen, archivally linen backed with a small amount of restoration along the top edge. About Near Fine. Criterion Collection 68.

        Five-decade photograph collection of an extended family living in the New York-Pennsylvania region near Binghamton

      New York and Pennsylvania, 1950. Five various-size volumes holding well over 1000 photographs of differing sizes. Many of the photographs are captioned on the page, in the margin, or on the reverse. About half of the images are attached with photo corners and half have been glued/pasted to the pages.

All manner of family life is depicted including home scenes, cabins, family members, pets, school, vacations, soldiers and marines, hunting, fishing, boating, swimming, barnyard animals and farm equipment, shops, wagons, horses, buggies and sleighs, bicycles and vehicles, snowstorms, etc. Highlights include * many motorcycle photos from the 1910s (Harley-Davidson, Dayton, sidecar); * many military photos including World War One (several of soldiers outside Walter Reed Army Hospital, several of a victory parade including one with a Holt Mark II tracked 155mm howitzer and one with President Wilson walking in a top hat and overcoat), between the wars (several of the 23rd Cavalry Division on parade), and World War Two (one of Corporal Donald Speer working on a B-24 Liberator engine); * a circa-1915 Boy Scout; * an interracial picnic, * two photos of Adams Express wagons in front of a store; * three photos of a train wreck at Catawissa, Pennsylvania; * a wagon caught in a flood at Castle Creek, New York; * the start of the 1916 marathon at Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania; * and more.

      1950. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. An interesting collection of nine autograph letters, 1950 - 1974,  from the important 20th-century Italian composer to the Romanian-French composer Marcel Mihalovici. Dallapiccola thanks Mihalovici for sending him the score to "Phèdre"; regrets that he was not able to hear the radio because of poor reception; hopes to see and hear him in Paris; brings up the composition of "Prisonnier" ("Un grand scandale est à prévoir..."); informs him that the O.R.T.F will not record[?] "Ulysse"; invites him to Florence; sends a small work ("Sicut umbra..." qui - peut-être - est un petit peu mon portrait"); reports on his busy life, etc. Also included is a TLS from Laure Dallapiccola dated April 12, 1968, concerning a missed rendez-vous when the composer was obliged to leave for a performance of "Ulysse" in Berlin. Various sizes and formats, most also with original transmissal envelopes (generally signed additionally). With Petrassi, Dallapiccola was the most significant Italian composer of his generation, wrote marvelous, lyrical 12-tone compositions full of impressionistic textures, two major operas (Il Prigoniero, Ulisse), and was teacher of Berio and Rands among other leading composers.

      1950 - WENDT, Lionel. Lionel Wendt's Ceylon. London: Lincolns-Prager, (1950). Quarto, original full black cloth, original photographic dust jacket. $1800.First edition, illustrated with 120 photogravures of Ceylon by Wendt."Lionel Wendt's Ceylon is typical of his photographic style-pictorialist-modernist in the English mode-and illustrates a clash of two cultures, with Wendt looking at his own culture almost like an outsider". Ostensibly a book of personal travel photographs, the usual tropes of the genre are here-lush landscapes, architectural and people studies-all heavily idealized. But there are also a fair number of nude studies, of both males and females". These are typically pictorialist in style, with some Surrealist photomontages thrown in to show that Wendt was thoroughly up-to-date" (Parr&Badger II, 98). Small bookseller ticket.Book fine, beautiful price-clipped dust jacket with expert tape reinforcement to spine head verso. An about-fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        De mémoire d'homme., Lithographies de Pablo Picasso.

      Bordas, Paris 1950 - 4°; pp. 119 non num. 7, con 9 litografie originali di Picasso, di cui 8 f.testo a piena pagina ed una al frontespizio. Brochure edit. con risvolti al taglio anteriore, titoli al dorso e al piatto. Edizione limitata a complessivi 350 esemplari numerati, questo nostro è uno dei 300 su vélin d'Arches; contrassegnato dall'autore ad inchiostro con le iniziali nel colophon. L'opera fu scritta da Tzara tra il 1946 e il 1949 e rappresenta la summa della sua esperienza poetica. Le litografie di Picasso hanno la particolarità di essere state realizzate con un procedimento insolito: infatti l'artista ha utilizzato direttamente i polpastrelli delle dita intinti nell'inchiostro tipografico, per poi solo rifinire le tavole a matita litografica. Perfetto esemplare arricchito dal precedente proprietario di una custodia in piena pelle con titoli in oro ai piatti e al dorso. Cfr. Cramer 59; Monod 10794.(vedi riproduz.)Num. catalogo: 249 [Attributes: Soft Cover]
