        Bebop and Jitterbug dancing in the Club Eleven, London

      London, "Illustrated", 1950. Original photograph, silverprint, 19,3 x 24 cm. Photograph 3. Club Eleven, named after the number of founder members, began life just before Christmas in 1948. It was a co-operative arrangement designed to bring bebop to the attention of the jazz public at large. The musicians involved were Ronnie Scott, Hank Shaw, Leon Calvert, Johnny Rogers, Bernie Fenton, Tommy Pollard, Lennie Bush, Joe Muddel, Tony Crombie and Laurie Morgan plus manager Harry Morris. Johnny Dankworth and Denis Rose were regulars from the start. Some gave up steady work, Scott left Ted Heath, Fenton severed relations with Oscar Rabin, and Rose, Crombie, Muddel and Dankworth came from the now defunct Tito Burns orchestra. - This venue with these musicians were the first truly organised bebop sessions in Britain. With the star-studded assembly of musicians, Club Eleven became the focal point for the new jazz and the inspiration to many other young musicians throughout the country. - The music was played by the Johnny Dankworth Quartet comprising Dankworth, Bernie Fenton (pno), Joe Muddel (bs), and Laurie Morgan (d) and a band led by Ronnie Scott with Hank Shaw (tpt), Johnny Rogers (alto), Tommy Pollard (pno), Lennie Bush (bs), and Tony Crombie (d). The Dankworth quartet became a quintet when trumpeter Leon Calvert was added. - Mac's Rehearsal Rooms, 41, Windmill Street, (where the Moffat Club had been), became the first venue operating on Thursday and Saturday nights. The early months of the Eleven saw the highest peak of enthusiasm in the history of British modern jazz. The jazzmen continued to listen and study as many records of Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis that they could get hold of. Broadcasts, recordings, and concerts came in quick succession and public acclaim was such as to force a move within a few months to much larger premises at 50, Carnaby Street, satisfying the legions of fans coming from all over the country to the by now famous Club Eleven. It was now operating six days a week in the evening and was open in the afternoon as a meeting point for musicians. At this point Johnny Dankworth left to form his Seven taking Joe Muddel with him, and Harry Morris also quit. - Tony Hall writing in 1960 said "I can never recall such a sense of evil excitement in a club. The atmosphere was so vivid that the red glow from the stand and the savaget beat made me think of hell on earth!" - The phenomenal rise of the club, though dependent on the new jazz music it embraced, owed much to the personality of group leaders Ronnie Scott and Johnny Dankworth. - Unfortunately after this the early enthusiasm among the musicians began to wear off, they began to quarrel about the financial side of the club and the old spirit was gone. On the night of 15th April, 1950, Club Eleven was raided by the Drugs Squad. Six musicians appeared on drugs charges and Denis Rose was arrested by the Military Police as an Army deserter. The news of the arrest, trial and conviction of some of the Club Eleven members occupied the front page of almost every national paper in the size of type usually reserved for earthquakes or war. Though this publicity did nothing to lessen attendances, the decline of the Club Eleven was only a matter of time. There were a number of other factors contributing to the dissolution of an organisation that for the two years of its existence had a profound influence on its leading figures and devoted followers but it folded shortly afterwards. - - - Don Rendell remembers Club Eleven... A lot of jazz activity was consolidated by the formation of the 'Club Eleven' which was quite a milestone. It was the first regular paid modern jazz gig for London musicians, who ran it themselves. They used Mac's Rehearsal Rooms in Great Windmill Street. - Two groups were featured. One was fronted by Johnny Dankworth, with Leon Calvert on trumpet, Bernie Fenton on piano, Joe Muddel on bass and Laurie Morgan on drums; the other was led by Ronnie Scott, with Hank Shaw on trumpet and the rhythm of Tommy Pollard, Lennie Bush and Tony Crombie. The eleventh man was a non-musician the late Harry Morris, who, being a good businessman, took care of the financial side. When Ronnie Scott left to go on the boats to the States, I was asked to fill the vacancy in the Eleven. It was quite a closed circle that we had at the Club Eleven. I have the feeling that not everyone was very popular if they got up and tried to join in. Just those whose gig it was did the playing with very few exceptions. But the people didn't seem baffled at all by the new music we were playing. It seemed to be so obviously right. What we were hearing on record from Parker, Gillespie, the early Miles Davis, tenor players like Wardell Gray, Dexter Gordon, Stan Getz and Allan Eager - we just fell naturally into it. And the audiences just lapped it up. Through being there, of course, I got to meet Johnny Dankworth... (Extracted from 'A recap of twenty years of British Jazz', written in 1967 by Don Rendell. The full text can be read at Jazz Professional website.) - - - The Club Eleven and its music provided a base for many offbeat types, and the audience was involved with the music and the way of life that it implied. Little exists in print about what the Eleven was like from this point of view but the following might be of interest: "The musicians played what they liked as they liked - but it was mostly bebop and a lot more frantic than at Feldman's. There was no requests and no programme. If the music failed to please...well you didn't have to stay. But there were hundreds like myself who liked the music. So we stayed while some left. And the more we stayed the more the Club Eleven crept into the marrow of our bones..." Raymond Thorp: Viper (WDL Books, London 1960). KEYWORDS:england/london/bebop/photo/united kingdom

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1950. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Signed. First edition, first printing. Inscribed in year of publication by Hughes to his favorite teacher who first inspired him to write, "For Ethel Welch -- my teacher and friend in whose class I first began to write -- Sincerely, Langston Hughes / New York, April 14, 1950."

He was elected class poet that year. He would correspond with her as an adult and later muse, "In a sense, I owe the beginning of my career to Ethel." Label of Welch's niece on rear endpaper. Very Good with mottled cloth and bumped corners in Very Good unclipped dust jacket with some rubbing and edge wear, small split near head. A truly wonderful presentation copy from the famous writer, lecturer, and Harlem Renaissance poet to the single most important, pivotal figure in his artistic life.

        Autograph letter signed "Benjamin [?]Br" to the noted English composer, broadcaster, and writer on music Antony Hopkins

      Hopkins's Festival Overture was first performed at the Aldeburgh Festival on June 24, 1950, in Aldeburgh Parish Church, conducted by the composer. Of the work, Hopkins writes: "Judge of my surprise when I received a letter from Benjamin Britten asking me to write a short Festival Overture for the then comparatively new Aldeburgh Festival. It was to be for a tiny band - just 11 strings and 2 trumpets. I had earlier dedicated my first opera to Britten and this may have been a kindly reciprocal gesture. I duly wrote this piece and tried to finish it triumphantly, despite the small resources. My 'triumph' was received in total silence - I had forgotten that the performance was given in the local church, and in those days applause wasn't allow in churches. Surely the angels wouldn't mind? Anyway, to this day, it was the biggest anti-climax of my life, and I slunk out of the building a broken spirit." From Goodmusic Publishers online. After its first publication, the Festival Overture was named Aldeburgh Festival Suite. "[Britten] and his contemporary Michael Tippett are among several pairs of composers who dominated English art music in the 20th century. Of their music, Britten';s early on achieved, and has maintained, wider international circulation." Philip Brett et al. in Grove Music Online.. 2 pp. Octavo (ca. 176 x 137 mm). Dated July 6, 1950. In ink on stationery with "4 Crabbe St. Aldeburgh, Suffolk" printed at head. Britten warmly thanks "Tony" for writing an overture for the Aldeburgh Festival, which Britten, Peter Pears, and Eric Crozier had founded in 1948. He apologizes for not writing sooner, and for not spending more time with Hopkins and his wife, Alison, during the Festival. "... [the Overture] made an extremely brilliant effect, and was a perfect opening piece for what, I think, turned out to be a nice concert. I especially admired the restraint & skill in writing for the small body of performers. The performance seemed fine - I hope you were pleased... I was sorry not to see more of you & Alison - but the whole social business of the week gets a bit out of hand... Thank you again for your kindness, promptness & skill in writing the overture." Slightly worn and soiled; creased at fold and slightly overall; minor foxing to small area of verso.

        The Morning Watch.

      Rome: Botteghe oscure,, 1950. Octavo. Original buff wrappers, title to front cover in black. Faint spotting to wrappers, front hinge starting at head but text block sound, contents lightly toned. A very good copy. First edition, first printing. Presentation offprint, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Albert Brush, with warmest regard and esteem, Jim Agee, June 6, '54"; an offprint of the novella as it first appeared in the literary journal Botteghe oscure, VI. The recipient, the enigmatic Santa Monica poet Albert Brush, travelled in bohemian circles in Greenwich Village in the 1920s. He was in Paris in the early 1930s and spent most of his life moving in the artistic circles of Southern California; he appears briefly in the biographies of figures such as Christopher Isherwood and Charles Laughton. In the later 1930s he helped write Laughton's famous English adaptation of Bertold Brecht's Life of Galileo. In 1954, the time of this inscription, Agee was finishing work with Laughton on the screenplay of The Night of the Hunter (1955); it was presumably Laughton who introduced the two. Agee's novella, with its 12-year-old protagonist and atmosphere of foreboding religiosity, shares a number of themes with his screenplay for Laughton's celebrated film.

        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."

        Actuelles. Chroniques 1944-1948

      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 ». [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition of the theatrical adaptation established by Albert Camus, one of the review copies service.

        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.
