        The Town and the City.

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1950. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original red cloth. Signed "John Kerouac" on the front free endpaper. Some light rubbing to the bottom cloth in an excellent dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Kerouac began writing The Town and the City in late 1945, according to Ellis Amburn, who edited Kerouac's last two novels and wrote the biography Subterranean Kerouac. Heavily influenced by Thomas Wolfe, he sent the completed manuscript to Wolfe's publisher, Charles Scribner's Sons, in 1948. Allen Ginsberg lobbied his former teacher at Columbia University (Kerouac had also attended Columbia), Mark Van Doren for help, and Van Doren set up an interview with Alfred Kazin, who worked as a scout for Harcourt Brace. Kerouac was unable to make the interview with Kazin but Ginsberg introduced Kerouac to New Yorker editor Ed Stringham, who arranged a meeting between Kerouac and the editor-in-chief of Viking Press. Kazin eventually decided to read the manuscript and if he liked it, he would pass it to the top publishers in New York. His contacts also included Houghton Mifflin, Alfred A. Knopf, Little Brown and Company, and Random House. Kazin recommended the book. In December 1948, Scribner's again rejected the manuscript, despite changes that Kerouac had made to the text. Little Brown also rejected the book that same month, declining publication due to its excessive length, which meant the book would be prohibitively expensive for a first novel. (Most of the costs of publishing a first novel are the costs of paper and binding, and a long book makes it harder for the publisher to recoup its costs.) After reading sample chapters of The Town and the City (along with Kerouac's work-in-progress Dr. Sax), Mark Van Doren recommended the novel to Robert Giroux at Harcourt Brace in March 1949. Giroux, like Van Doren and Kerouac, was associated with Columbia. Giroux was impressed with the 1,100-page-long manuscript, which he thought comparable to Wolfe's Look Homeward, Angel in terms of its lyricism and poetry, and offered Kerouac a $1,000 advance against royalties. Publication eventually was pushed back to March 2, 1950. It received good notices from Charles Poore, reviewing the book for the daily New York Times, and John Brooks, reviewing it for the Sunday Times Book Review.

        In a three-page draft of a speech most probably delivered at the United Nations, Abba Eban, Israel's Representative at the U.N., blames the Arab States for preventing peaceful supervision of the Holy Places in Jerusalem

      New York, N.Y., c. Early 1950's. 6" x 8". "Historically important Autograph Manuscript of a speech by Abba Eban, three pages, 6"" x 8"", separate sheets of hotel stationery of The Savoy-Plaza, New York City. The Savoy-Plaza was demolished in 1964. Eban was Israel's first Representative to the United Nations. With cross-outs and additions, but not signed by Eban. In full: ""The record of the Arab Government in the Jerusalem question is as follows: -They violently opposed the Statute of Jerusalem when it was first proposed by the U.N. and made brutal destructive war upon the City in cynical disregard of its sacred associations."" Eban then writes ""This assault caused the abandonment and irrevocable,"" then crosses the phrase out, replacing it with ""and with heavy loss of life and damage to buildings old and new, religious and secular."" He continues, ""When Jerusalem obtained its political freedom through integration with Israel, proposals arose in the United Nations and in world opinion generally for establishing United Nations representation in Jerusalem for the supervision of the Holy Places. The Arab States have opposed these suggestions and are largely responsible for their not having been put into effect. At the same time, Jordan, the only Arab government with actual interests and positions in Jerusalem opposes the internationalization proposals for which other Arab governments profess tactical support. This the Arab policy has been and is - to thwart whatever proposals can effectively or justly at any time give peaceful expression to international concern for the Holy Places. In these circumstances their exploitation of the Jerusalem question for a hollow political maneuver is a shocking profanity, offensive to the City's peace and holiness. The Arab Ambassadors have publicly referred to the responsibilities of the United States in this question. In this connection the Israel Embassy merely recalls the following facts from Israel's own experience. First. The United States and Israel were unable to maintain the original internationalization plans against Arab assault and the United States in May 1948 took the lead in advocating the non-implementation of the plan. Second. The United States representative in the U.N. in November 1948 proposed that Jerusalem be integrated with the rest of Palestine. In 1949 and 1950 the United States opposed the plan for territorial internationalization in the General Assembly and Trusteeship Council. Third. The United States encouraged and supported Israel's initiative in June 1950 in proposing an international representative for the Holy Places in and outside Jerusalem."" In October, 1948, President Truman stated that ""We continue to support, within the framework of the United Nations, the internationalization of Jerusalem and the protection of the holy places in Palestine."" In 1952, the United States took the position that ""The Government of the United States has adhered and continues to adhere to the policy that there should be a special international regime for Jerusalem which will not only provide protection for the holy places but which will be acceptable to Israel and Jordan as well as the world community."" Abba Eban was Israel's first voice to the world. A brilliant and eloquent speaker and a superb orator, Eban was born in South Africa and educated at Cambridge. He became Israel's first Representative at the United Nations in 1948, and served concurrently as Ambassador to the United States from 1950 until his election to the Knesset in 1959. Abba Eban was Israel's Foreign Minister from 1966-1974. In excellent condition."

      Gallimard 1950 - - Gallimard, Paris 1950, 12x19cm, broché. - Edition originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Une tache pale au deuxième plat de couverture, papier jauni, notre exemplaire est présenté sous chemise en demi chagrin gris et étui, ensemble signé de signé Devauchelle. Précieux envoi autographe signé des initiales d'Albert Camus à son proche ami André Belamich. Belamich rencontre Camus en 1932 sur les bancs du cours de philosophie de Jean Grenier au lycée Bugeaud d'Alger, la fameuse « Khâgne africaine ». Après avoir participé ensemble à l'aventure du Parti Communiste Algérien, Camus et Belamich forment avec d'autres penseurs et artistes ce que l'on nomme aujourd'hui "l'Ecole d'Alger" réunissant autour de l'éditeur et libraire Edmond Charlot une génération d'esprits progressistes dont Claude de Fréminville, Max-Pol Fouchet, René-Jean Clot, emmanuel Roblès et Gabriel Audisio. Après plusieurs traductions pour Charlot de Jane Austin et David Lawrence, Belamich devient surtout, à l'initiative et avec le soutien de Camus, le principal traducteur de Garcia Lorca et l'instigateur de sa diffusion en France. L'indéfectible amitié qui l'unit à Camus jusqu'à sa mort - il est à ses côtés lors de la remise de son Prix Nobel - font de lui un des principaux témoins de la vie de l'écrivain comme l'attestent ses contributions aux biographies de Herbert R. Lottman et de Olivier Todd. Emouvant et précieux envoi à cet ami des premières heures algériennes qui ont construit l'humanisme de Camus et auxquelles il consacra son dernier roman inachevé : « Le premier homme ».

        Thomas Merton Original Calligraphic Artwork.

      Original signed artwork from Thomas Merton. In the last decade of his life, while living as a hermit-monk in dialogue with the world, Thomas Merton created a body of visual art, drawing from the Zen Buddhist tradition. When he was a student at Columbia University, Merton sought out a Hindu monk named Bramachari for counsel. The monk advised Merton to follow his own Christian tradition to find what he was most deeply looking for. A strong admirer of Gandhi, Merton also noted how Gandhi, a Hindu, had found a congenial ' second home' of sorts in the Christian Sermon on the Mount. In the 1950's Merton began exploring Buddhism, especially Zen Buddhism. He thought he found some resonance between Zen and the Desert Fathers. Merton sent a copy of his study of the Desert Fathers to Daisetsu Suzuki, the leading exponent of Zen in the west. They began a long correspondence in the late 1950's, and Suzuki's influence can be seen in Merton's artwork. Includes a letter from activist W.H. Ferry, which reads, "4/3/68 For Mary Sue Dilliard: Daisetsu Suzuki told Father Tom Merton in 1965 that the only way finally to understand Zen was to practice calligraphy. This is the result: one of Tom's earliest calligraphs. W.H. Ferry." On the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions letterhead, which Ferry was the Vice President. Matted and framed in what looks to be the original frame, which measures 13 inches by 15 inches. Calligraphy drawing measures 9 inches by 12.5 inches. On the verso of the frame, it includes various Merton material including numerous clippings. Original artwork by Merton is exceptionally rare in the marketplace.

Cet avocat républicain convaincu, passionné d’histoires locales, de littérature et d’archéologie, consacra les dernières années de sa vie à recueillir de la bouche des membres de sa famille et de son entourage, ce qu’il nomma « Chansons et poésies populaires recueillies dans l’Albigeois ». On lui doit plusieurs ouvrages notamment l'Idylle vénitienne, Des Riens, une traduction des Pastorales de Théocrite, Graffiti d'amour, On luit doit également ce bon mot qui donne assez une idée de son esprit badin : « Une femme vertueuse est celle qui, avant d'entrer chez son amant, ôte son alliance et enlève de sa chaîne sa petite médaille sainte. »SUPERBE ILLUSTRATION DE PAUL-ÉMILE BÉCAT, D'UNE DÉLICIEUSE SENSUALITÉ.

        L'Hôtel des Neiges".

      1950 - Gouache signée en bas à droite, titrée en bas à gauche, 1947, 24.5 x 35 cm. Jean-Denis MALCLES (Paris 1912 - 2002) est un peintre, affichiste, illustrateur et décorateur de théâtre français. Il illustra notamment Bel Ami de Maupassant, et figura dans les principaux Salons parisiens de peinture. Mais c'est son travail qui le fit connaître : on lui doit notamment la création du costume des Frères Jacques et de plusieurs affiches de cinéma ou de théâtre dont celle de La Belle et la Bête de Jean Cocteau. Il fut le collaborateur privilégié de Jean Anouilh pour la plupart de ses pièces. Il a également créé au cours des années 1950 et 1960 les costumes et les décors de nombreuses productions lyriques à l’Opéra de Paris, l’Opéra-Comique, au Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, au Covent Garden de Londres ou à la Scala de Milan mais aussi d'opérettes comme La Vie parisienne. "Son art dans toutes ses manifestations s'inspire d'un surréalisme apaisé. " (Bénézit, VII, 113). Il signe ici un décor pour la comédie en 3 actes de Robert Boissy "Hôtel des neiges" mise en scène par Robert Dhéry en 1946, avec Agnès Capri, Colette Brosset, Christian Duvaleix, Pierre Destailles, Renaud-Marie et Claire Gérard. Dans un style presque naïf, une grande pièce évoque le rez-de-chaussée d'un chalet. Les fenêtres composées de petits carreaux sont blanches de givre, les murs sont habillés de planches, deux chaises, une banquette couverte de velours rouge, une table avec quelques feuilles forment son mobilier. Taches et salissures marginales. Oeuvre originale

        Some Notes on No. 26

      San Francisco, CA: Three Fingers Press, 1950. Soft Cover. Very Good. 48mo - over 3" - 4" tall. Book shows a publication date of 1950, but it was actually released in 1951. Handcrafted, string bound, heavy card wrappers with 14 uncut leaves upon which are mounted a number of original photographs and ephemera relating to the Virginia and Truckee Railroad's heavy Ten-Wheeler locomotive, No. 26. Very nice shape. There are over 20 original photographs and significant pieces of ephemera that "have with loving care been gathered, collated, hand set, pasted, bound up and cursed into book form . . . on the first anniversary of the demise of V & T No. 26." The book includes a signed 3-page essay about the demise of small railroads and a description of the loss of the No. 26 in an engine-house fire in 1950. Photographs include images of the train at work as well as its flaming destruction. The ephemera includes a 1876 V&T bank check, a 1878 invoice, a timetable, and a bill of lading. The author was a mining engineer and research mineralogist who worked for the Aurora Creek Gold Mining Company and at Stanford University's School of Mineral Sciences, where he published a number of scholarly articles and monographs. A rabid rail fan, Beatty focused his hobby on the railroads of Nevada and Eastern California. Although unspecified, the distribution of this work was no doubt quite limited. Very scarce. As of 2016, no examples are listed in OCLC, no auction records are reported by ABPC or Rare Book Hub, and only one other copy is for sale (for $2,000) in the trade.
