        Mountain Sheep in the Rockies

      1950. () Fine. Original watercolour, mated and framed. Visible image measures 17" X 15.5", tasteful, deep wooden white and gold filagree frame measured 28" X 27". Colours vibrant and unfaded. Signed and dated by Phillips in the lower right corner. A beautiful, original watercolour by the famous Canadian artist of a autumn scene in the Canadian Rockies. The image depicts 2 rams and 2 ewes in an alpine meadow amid the reds and yellows of late autumn. Mountain peaks in the background are still free of snow, yet a stormy sky reminds that winter is not far behind. Walter Joseph Phillips (October 25, 1884 - July 5, 1963) was an English-born Canadian painter and woodcutter, acclaimed as one of Canada's most famous printmakers and for popularizing the colour woodcut in the style of the Japanese. His artistic career spanned from the 1900s through the 1940s, during which time his work was exhibited throughout North America and Great Britain. In 1940 he was asked to become a resident artist at the Banff Centre, then known as the Banff School of Fine Arts, where he played an important role in the development of their visual arts program. Its Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta holds an extensive collection of Phillips works and a research archive. Phillips embraced the difficulty of watercolour and revealed in the challenge to capture the beauty of a landscape in the medium. Says Phillips "A landscape painting is essentially emotional in origin. It exists of a record of an effect in nature whose splendor has moved a human heart…" Boulet 21. The example offered here is a splendid example of this sentiment..

Binding Editor open cardboard made according to the original model of Mario Prassinos. Valuable and important autograph signed by the author René Char: "René Char, these first Noces, with the best heart / Albert Camus.". Beautiful specimen of exceptional provenance. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition imprimée à 1050 exemplaires numérotés sur vélin Navarre de Voiron. Reliure de l'éditeur en plein cartonnage réalisé d'après la maquette originale de Mario Prassinos. Précieux et important envoi autographe signé d'Albert Camus à René Char : « à René Char, ces premières Noces, avec le meilleur du cœur. Albert Camus ». L'amitié entre Albert Camus et René Char figure parmi les plus belles et fructueuses de la littérature française. Rien ne semblait destiner l'écrivain journaliste algérois et le poète provençal à se rencontrer et encore moins à s'apprécier. Camus n'entendait rien à la poésie et Char n'avait aucun goût pour le roman, ceux de Maurice Blanchot mis à part. Pourtant, c'est par leurs œuvres respectives que les deux artistes se découvrent et s'apprécient. Ainsi avant Camus et Char se rencontrent Caligula et Hypnos, illustrant tous deux la responsabilité du poète face à la violence du monde. « Dans nos ténèbres, il n'y a pas une place pour la Beauté. Toute la place est pour la Beauté. » (Char, Feuillets d'Hypnos). C'est cette exigence commune de la Beauté comme réponse politique à la démesure des idéologies qui unit les deux artistes au sortir de la guerre. Ferment de leur amitié, cette première « reconnaissance » inaugure une correspondance de douze années au fil de laquelle croît leur affection mutuelle et se révèlent leur convergences artistiques : « Je crois que notre fraternité - sur tous les plans - va encore plus loin que nous l'envisageons et que nous l'éprouvons. » (Char à Camus, 3 novembre 1951). « Quelle bonne et profonde chose que de se détacher peu à peu de tout ce et tous ceux qui ne méritent rien et de reconnaître peu à peu à travers les années et les frontières une famille d'esprits. Comme on se sent beaucoup tout d'un coup à être enfin quelques-uns... » (Camus à Char, 26 février 1950) Ces « quelques-uns », référence à la citation de Gide : « Je crois à la vertu du petit nombre ; le monde sera sauvé par quelques-uns », Char et Camus tenteront de les rassembler en fondant ensemble la revue Empédocle : « Il est peut-être temps que les quelques-uns dont parlait Gide se réunissent » écrit Camus à Guilloux en janvier 1949. Ils publieront des écrits de Gracq, Melville, Grenier, Guilloux, Blanchot, Ponge, Rilke, Kafka... Les dissensions internes auront rapidement raison de la revue, et c'est ensemble qu'ils abandonneront le projet. Leur amitié, elle, est sans ombre. Les deux hommes se retrouvent régulièrement en Provence, terre natale de Char et devenue, grâce à lui, le pays d'adoption de Camus. Ils partagent leurs manuscrits, se confient leur doutes : « Plus je produis et moins je suis sûr. Sur le chemin où marche un artiste, la nuit tombe de plus en plus épaisse. Finalement, il meurt aveugle. Ma seule foi est que la lumière l'habite, au-dedans, et qu'il ne peut la voir, et qu'elle rayonne quand même. Mais comment en être sûr. C'est pourquoi il faut bien s'appuyer sur l'ami, quand il sait et comprend, et qu'il marche lui-même du même pas. » Ils se dédient leurs œuvres (la réédition des Feuillets d'Hypnos et Actuelles) et s'adressent sur chaque nouvel exemplaire des dédicaces qui, chacune, scellent leur fraternité d'armes et d'âme. « à René Char qui aide à vivre, en attendant notre royaume, son ami et son frère en espoir. » (manuscrit de La Peste) « Pour Albert Camus, un des très rares hommes que j'admire et que j'aime et dont l'œuvre est l'honneur de ce temps. René Char » (Fureur et mystère) « [à RENÉ CHAR], frère de route, ce livre de bord d'un commun voyage vers le temps des hommes, en attendant midi. Affectueusement Albert Camus » (Actuelles I) « Pour Albert Camus, dont l'amitié et l'œuvre forment une Présence qui éclaire et fortifie les yeux » (Art bref) « Ah si seulement les poètes consentaient à redevenir ce qu'ils étaient autrefois : des voyants qui nous parlent de ce qui est possible... Que ne nous donnent-ils l'avant-goût des vertus à venir. Nietzsche ». « A René Char, frère de ceux-ci, dont il a fait toute la route avec l'admiration et l'affection de son ami. / Albert Camus » Notre exemplaire, lui, a sans doute été adressé en octobre 1953 avec les autres « reliés » (les cartonnages Prassinos - cf. lettre du 23 octobre 1953). Camus avait déja adressé à Char un premier exemplaire de cette ode à son pays natal, initialement parue en 1939, bien avant leur rencontre : A René Char, pour ramener entre nous deux ces années où je ne le connaissais pas mais qui contenait déja les raisons de notre amitié.". Cette seconde dédicace sur "ces premières Noces" souligne combien cette oeuvre de jeunesse qui célèbre "les noces de l'homme avec le monde" est une révélation précoce de ce qu'ils nommeront leur "fraternité de planète". A la mort de Camus, Char publie La postérité du soleil, leur œuvre commune écrite en 1952, hommage à leur amitié et à : « cet arrière-pays qui est à l'image du nôtre, invisible à autrui ». Très bel exemplaire d'une exceptionnelle provenance. Merci de nous contacter 24 heures à l'avance si vous souhaitez voir cet ouvrage à la librairie.

        Petites et Grandes Residences

      1950. DUCHÊNE, Achille. Petites et Grandes Residences. Introduction by Ernest de Ganay. [1], 6, [7] ff. Illustrated with 64 collotype prints, mostly from Duchêne's original drawings. Loose as issued in oblong folio format, housed in an folding box. Paris: Fondation Ligne à Beloeil, 1950. |~| Number 6 of 10 hors commerce copies from a total planned edition of 350. This splendid work was never published as almost the entire edition was destroyed while in storage. Some few years ago the Ligne Foundation was able to assemble eight sets from the estate of Duchêne and made three of them available for sale. Achille Duchêne, whose career spanned the years 1880 to 1940, was the architect in charge of redesigning the gardens of almost all the major French historic residences. This work documents the renovation of the gardens a la française after a long period of neglect during the 19th century. It is a celebration of the renaissance of traditional architecture and landscape gardening and marks the return to grande décoration. The portfolio comprises 64 plates executed in collotype on fine filigrane velin d'Arches paper. Most of the original drawings and designs for these garden images were executed by Duchêne, as well as a few after Henri Brabant, his student and collaborator. The grand residences of France, including Chambord, Le Marais, Voisins, Sully, as well as the grounds and gardens of great American estates such as those of the Vanderbilts and Wallachs, are included. The drawings are from a birds-eye view; many show plans and details of the grounds and garden layouts. The preface was written by Ernst de Ganay, one of the most important scholars of garden history from the first half of this century. The rediscovery and availability of a few copies of Petites et grandes résidences represents an important opportunity to study this beautiful and essential document of this phase of the traditional art of the French garden and to come to know the man whose love of gardens is made manifest in his words, "Je donnerai ma vie pour que les fleurs me parlent." Extremely rare, with OCLC listing on 4 copies worldwide: 2 in France, one at Dumbarton Oaks, and the other at the Getty. No copies at all are listed on ABPC.

Also inscribed by Harry Truman who wrote the foreword, "A great look from a great man- and my friend. Harry S. Truman Independence. March 15,1955." Some rubbing to the bottom cloth, near fine in a very good dust jacket with wear and tear, a chip to the spine crown and rear panel. Rare. Throughout almost five years from November, 1940, to the end of World War II in September, 1945, my duties placed me at pivotal points in the high command that accomplished the defeat of our enemies against what at times seemed heavy odds. These observations are based on participation in many historic discussions at which the course of the war was charted and at which attempts were made to map the road to peace. As Franklin D. Roosevelt's and Harry Truman's chief of staff, Admiral William D. Leahy was involved in most of the key decisions and conferences that won the war and saw the creation of the postwar world.

      London: Faber and Faber, 1950. 1st English edition, full black cloth with gold lettering on spine, with printed dust jacket. (Gallup A61b.) A presentation copy, inscribed by T. S. Eliot upon publication, to Elisabeth Jungmann (Lady Beerbohm). Eliot was the editor of the present volume, as well as the publisher at Faber when this volume was issued. The inscription reads: "for / Elisabeth Jungmann / from T. S. Eliot / Sept. 1950" in blue fountain pen ink on the first FEP. At the time of publication, Elisabeth Jungmann was serving as Max Beerbohm's secretary and confidante, living in Genoa, and a neighbor of Ezra Pound. Soon after, Elisabeth Jungmann married Max Beerbohm. The relationship between Eliot and Pound is legendary, and both men enjoyed a mutual friendship as well with the Beerbohms. Far beyond just an interesting association copy, the present volume links two of the most influential early modern poets who edited and championed each other's work. Minimal wear to jacket not withstanding, a fine copy. Truly unique and one of a kind.

        Burning Bright

      New York, NY: The Viking Press, 1950. First Printing. Hardcover. Very Fine/Near Fine. This is the first edition, first printing of the canonical American writer John Steinbeck's "play in story form" as it is subtitled, "First published by The Viking Press in November 1950" as noted in the copyright page. This presentation copy is very special indeed- it is from the estate of actress Lauren Bacall (1924-2014), & on the dedication page, just below the printed dedication "To, For, and because of Elaine"(who would become his third wife just after this book was first published), Steinbeck has hand-written in black ink: "And also for/Stephen/much love/(signed) John Steinbeck/(squiggly doodle-drawing)/Regards." Stephen is Stephen Bogart, the son of Bacall & legendary actor Humphrey Bogart. Presuming Steinbeck's undated citation was written at or near the time of publication, Stephen would have been a toddler, born the year before in early 1949. A most important, one-of-a-kind collectible with outstanding provenance & reference. Book in very fine condition with only lightest wear to top & bottom of cloth spine; very light browning to edges, endpapers & interior leaves. Unclipped dust jacket in near-fine condition with very mild creasing, rubbing & soiling to front, back covers & spine; mild, short chips, tears & wear along all edges; one vertical closed tear & horizontal crease forming a small rough rectangle at upper right corner of front cover. Signed by John Steinbeck with citation to Stephen Bogart, son of Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall.

      Stuttgart: Anton Hiersemann 1950-81.. 11 Bände (von bislang 25 erschienenen). Mit zahlreichen Karten und Abbildungen. 4° (28 x 20,5 cm). 11 Orig-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln und dunkelgrauem Kopfschnitt. - Die Einbände sauber mit selbstklebender transparenter Buchbinderfolie kaschiert. [Hardcover / fest gebunden].. Das Lexikon wird federführend vom Franz Joseph Dölger-Institut in Bonn herausgegeben. Angaben des Instituts zum RAC: "Das RAC dient als Hilfsmittel zur Erforschung der ausgehenden Antike und des beginnenden Frühmittelalters bzw. der frühbyzantinischen Zeit. Konkret soll die Frage beantwortet werden: Wie wurde aus der vielschichtigen, keineswegs einheitlichen antiken Kultur, die sich seit hellenistischer Zeit in der Mittelmeerwelt entwickelte, die spätantik-christliche der folgenden Jahrhunderte? Die Bedeutung dieser Fragestellung ergibt sich aus der Tatsache, dass diese spätantik-christliche Kultur eine Vorstufe der mittelalterlichen und damit zum Teil der heutigen bildet. Verkürzt wird diese Aufgabenstellung mit der von F. J. Dölger geprägten, im Untertitel des RAC programmatisch verwendeten Formel 'Auseinandersetzung des Christentums mit der antiken Welt' umschrieben." - Ehemaliges, foliertes Bibliotheksexemplar mit Rückensignatur, Inventarnummern und Stempeln auf Schnitten, Vorsatz- und Titelblättern. Ansonsten gut erhaltenes, sauberes Exemplar.

        [Photo Album]: South Africa 1950

      Oblong quarto. Blue spiral bound paper wrappers imprinted with "Photographs" in gilt. Some scrapes and the handwritten words "South Africa No. 2" on the front wrap, crease on the corner of one image, very good. 62 images (two images appear to be lacking, a couple have come loose). Mostly glossy gelatin silver prints ranging in sizes 3.5" x 2.5" to 8.5" x 6.5", over half of the images are captioned in white. Interesting images of a vacation in South Africa in 1950 (one image taken from shipboard captioned "Goodbye to South Africa. 10 Nov 1950"). Images of the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Town, Cape Province, the Seven Weeks Pass, and the Great Karroo. Apparently mostly a motor journey, there are images of various passes, images of the auto on and off the road, Eland cows and bulls, and an interesting panorama of Cape Town made up of five separate photos taken from Signal Hill. A series of larger images show indigenous people, wildebeests, the auto on a primitive man-powered river ferry, and some impressive wilderness scenes. .

        Archive of correspondence with an emotive typed letter, signed

      New York and Los Angeles: , 1950-2. 12 pages of correspondence, including 5 original letters, one over the signature of James C. Petrillo, as president of the American Federation of Musicians; three with the autograph ink-stamp of Charles R. Iucci, secretary of New York, Local 802 of the AFM, and an original telegram sent by him; a claim form against Parker made out by Elmer Fain, "business representative" of Local 767 in LA; together with Bird's moving appeal for his livelihood. Light toning, the Local 767 claim form browned, but overall very good. Revealing sequence of documents relating of an aspect of Bird's life, and character, not often illuminated in such a way - his almost pathological feud with the authorities that directly controlled access to the clubs and bars that were the essential arena for his creativity. These years were marked by an accelerated decline in his mental state, his life spiralling out of control, during which Parker was more or less continually in dispute with the The American Federation of Musicians - the musicians union, as represented by the endlessly intrusive New York Local 802, and also the national president himself Joseph Petrillo, notorious for having called the Recording Strike of 1942-4 which robbed posterity of a record of the development of be-bop - while he also drew hostile attention from the New York State Liquor Authority, advised by the NYPD, who had the revocation of his 'cabaret card' in their command. The archive highlights his coast-to-coast evasion of the AFM, and includes a heartfelt, and almost plausible, plea from Bird himself. The group opens with a letter from 1950 sent by Charles R. Iucci of Local 802 in New York to Paul L. Howard, the financial secretary of Local 767 in LA, requesting clarification of a notice relating to unpaid dues, a total of $21.50. Iucci explains that Bird has left for Europe, but Teddy Blume, Parker's personal manager during the "With Strings" tours of 1950, had assured him that Parker had "personally given his resignation to the President of your Local, after which they shook hands in token of good friendship". To which Howard replies, a little stiffly, advising "that [Parker] has not been in this jurisdiction for a year or more, at which time our former president was in office. Our succeeding President has never met Charley[sic.] Parker face to face," before concluding "we would appreciate any assistance you can give us in collecting the money from Mr. Parker". The next piece is from two years later, a claim form for Local 767 filed in June 1952 made out by Elmer Fain, a business manager for the local, and a man described as "severe business, no-nonsense, [who] scared everybody to death … this man just exuded competence and power, you know. He had the bylaws memorised. You know, he knew what was right, and he knew what the scales were" (Jackie Kelso, "Central Avenue Sounds", UCLA oral history project). Fain explains that in three attempts he has never been shown a union card or travelling book - a permit for a musician to play in jurisdictions other than his home local - by Charlie; "Since Charlie came here to get him [sic.] straight untill [sic.] now I haven't seen a card or book". As a result of the proceedings Parker was fined $350 for "playing an engagement at the Tiffany Club, and for Jazz at the Philharmonic Recording Company, while erased from membership" of the AFM. His response was a request to James Petrillo, the president of the AFM, for a stay of judgement subject to an appeal, "I am a family man and have been out of work for along time and find it impossible to pay this amount" (text published Vail, Bird's Diary, p.113). There follow a series of triple forte choruses in the key of outrage, with Leo McCoy Davis of 767 signing off; "While we do not know about Parker's financial business, it is noted that he was earning $750 per week when he played the Tiffany Club, and in addition, he was earning extra money making recordings. He is a very popular musician, and if he is out of work, it is no doubt due to his conduct, which is very poor". With reference to Vail it clear that Bird was still gigging regularly, if controversially, with a problematic residency at the Say When Club in San Francisco in June-July, recording sessions at Zorthian's Ranch in Altadena in August, and, back in New York in September, a broadcast from Birdland and a benefit at the Rockland Ballroom, and no doubt more lost to history during the confused period of his life. Remarkably Parker was apparently never subject to a narcotics bust per se, he "survived countless pat-downs, raids, and ransacking of rooms … he always seemed to be one jump ahead of the 'narcs'. His luck, and supposed immunity from the bust, became part of the Parker legend" (Russell, Bird Lives!, p.304). However, his "cabaret card" was pulled sometime in 1951, essentially on suspicion, forcing him to play only theatre engagements or out of town for around a year, and the final document here, a letter from Iucci to Local 767, shows that from January 1953 he had also been "terminated from Local 802 for failure to pay" the fine of $350. The unquestionable genius of Charlie Parker has sometimes blinded people to his less appealing side. He has been tellingly described as "a reckless virtuoso … whose music embodies the contradictions of the man. He demonstrated complete control of his horn, even as his personal life spun out of control … An addict who would steal or con for a fix, he was beloved by friends and family" ( encyclopaedia). These bureaucratic proceedings offer a clear-eyed, if vindictive, view of Bird the risk-taker; Bird the wheedling junkie, the personality described on his admission to Bellevue as "ingratiating" (Russell, p.334); and also reveal a glimpse of his persistent, if perhaps delusional, desire for normality, to be the "family man" that he impersonated with "a rolled copy of The New York Times tucked under one arm" during his brief glimpse of almost suburban happiness with Chan (Russell, p.302). This period represented "the peak of Parker's commercial success … but one fatal flaw remained - his addiction drugs" (p.303), fuelling his self-destructive fugue from success, his decline and tragic death in 1955.

        High-Speed Computing Devices.

      New York, McGraw-Hill, 1950. 8vo. In the original full cloth with the original dust-jacket. Dust-jacket with light miscolouring to spine and and a tear to capitals. Small tear to upper part of the back to dust-jacket. A very fine and clean copy. XIII, (1), 451 pp.. First edition in the rare original dust-jacket of the first textbook on digital computers. It constitutes "the first genuine textbook on computing techniques and computer hardware, was a pioneering book that influenced both American and foreign computer developments." (Tomash-Erwin E14)"High-Speed Computing Devices was written to satisfy a perceived need, following the end of World War II, for a compendium of technologies applicable to the emerging field of the electronic digital computer. Because published technical information was scarce in the US, there can be little question that the book was an important contribution to the computer literature of the 1950s. For today's student of computer history, whether a professional historian or a history buff, the book, with its state-of-the-art picture of the period 1947 through 1949, establishes a well-documented baseline for tracking and evaluating subsequent technological progress" (A.A. Cohen, "Introduction", Charles Babbage Institute Reprint Series Edition of the ERA Report, 1983)."It provides the best picture of the state of the industry in its infancy. Ostensibly written as a report to the Office of Naval Research, the work was really undertaken on behalf of the Naval cryptographic establishment. Engineering Research Associates, ERA, was a group formed primarily from demobilized World War II naval cryptographers. It presents a discussion of the mechanical and electrical (both analog and digital) devices that could be usefully incorporated into computing machines. Although it does not survey the computer projects then underway, it does occasionally discuss individual machines in the context of integrating devices into complete systems. Engineering Research Associates (ERA) later became a division of Remington Rand and then of Sperry Rand." (Tomash-Erwin E14)Tomash-Erwin E14
