      c. 1950 - Sheet size: 190 × 230 mm. In pencil on the verso "Unpublished". Pen and ink on wove paper. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

        Autograph Quotation / Broadside / Publicity Photograph.

      - American poet and Lincoln biographer. A stunning trio of items archivally matted and framed together. First, the scarce broadside "Ever Normal Turmoil," 10½" X 15", printed at San Francisco's famed Peregrine Press in October 1950 in an edition of 200 copies. Very good. Sandburg composed this meditation upon war and peace on July 9, 1944. Alongside this is an appropriate autograph item: a small, unsigned Autograph Quotation in pencil, reading in full: "The first world war came and its / cost was laid on the people. / The second world war -- what will / be its cost and will it repay the / people for what they pay?" Very good. Mild age toning. Next to this is the third item, a scarce large publicity portrait of Sandburg by Robert Buchbinder. Near fine. A tremendous trio, simply and tastefully presented.

      New York Viking Press 1950 - First edition. 8vo, full grey cloth lettered in red on upper cover and spine, in dustjacket. 159. A bright clean and unusually nice copy. In the Foreword Steinbeck writes his reasons for writing in this format - play-novellette: "I find it difficult to read plays, and in this I do not find myself alone. The printed play is read almost exclusively by people closely associated with the theater, by students of the theater, and by the comparatively small group of readers who are passionately fond of the theater. .[this] will be more widely read because it is presented as ordinary fiction."

      A 19" x 25" portrait by Plath of her high school classmate and friend Arden Tapley, executed in pastels. Undated, but probably from 1950, the year both of them graduated from Wellesley High School. Arden is wearing her hair in the same style as her graduation photograph and may be wearing the same shirt. Plath's mastery of the craft of portraiture is limited: her anatomy is far from perfect, but her intent to capture the essence of her subject is boldly realized not only in the outer depiction of her hairstyle and nondescript clothing, but more importantly in the intensity of the gaze captured by the artist. The portrait would be remarkable if it contained only her eyes, which look askance with a combination of intensity and vulnerability that seems to perfectly embody the artist herself, perhaps as much as her friend. Arden Tapley's daughter recalled that her mother often spoke of her high school friendship with Sylvia, and that both were rather "shy, sensitive girls who naturally gravitated toward each other." She said that when she first saw the image she immediately recognized it as her mother, and in that sense Plath did capture an essence of her young friend. We have never seen such an artwork by Plath offered on the market; her sketch of Ted Hughes that was done seven years later and recently sold for $49,000 was a considerably less "finished" work, albeit one that showed a more mature command of style and representation. All of Plath's significant works have long been institutionalized. Once creased near the lower edge, apparently to display the image without showing the hands; small red stamp lower left corner; else fine. Matted and framed to 23-1/4" x 30". A powerful image of a close friend by the noted writer while she was still a high school student.

      Np, 1950. Approximately 17 1/2 x 23 3/4", charcoal drawing on paper. Unsigned. Matted and framed. Provenance: from the collection of the artist Ernesto Edwards, a longtime friend of Jess and Robert Duncan, who has a section devoted to his work in An Opening of the Field (pp. 188-193). A striking drawing by Jess, of a recumbent male nude. A rare large format work from Jess's earliest work, made only two years after he had a dream about the coming end of the world, turned his back on his career as a nuclear scientist, and moved to San Francisco to become an artist. The drawing is similar in style to his illustration for the Duncan poem The Song of the Borderguard (see the full page reproduction on p. 56 of Duncan & Wagstaff) and the illustrations for his 1950-1953 collaborations with Robert for the Book of Resemblances [ibid p.63]. The drawing was exhibited at Mythos Gallery in 2012 for the show "Buzz Gallery Revisited." and was reproduced on the poster for the show, a copy of which accompanies the painting. Some light toning, but visually near fine; not examined out of frame.

      1950 - Une page et demi (135 X 208). "3 Mars 50. Ma Marie, Je reçois quelques photos d'Amérique de Van Vechten. C'est surtout celle de mon Figaro [Figaro était le nom donné par Jouhandeau à l'un de ses chats], que je t'adresse. Il dort en ce moment dans mon dos, fatigué de faire l'amour. Lui, pas mon dos. Je tiens à peu près dans sa vie la place du Seigneur dans celle des dévots. Quand les chattes. Je t'embrasse, Marcel.". Carl VAN VECHTEN (1880-1964), romancier, critique et photographe, s'est particulièrement intéressé à la culture afro-américaine. Son roman "Nigger Heaven" (1926) qui donne une description très crue du Harlem des années 20 fut reçu comme un électrochoc par la communauté noire américaine. Il créa plusieurs prix littéraires qu'il dota lui-même et aida de jeunes écrivains noirs américains comme Langston Hugues et Countee Cullen. Souvent provocateur, Van Vechten n'a jamais dissimulé son homosexualité. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

        Typed Letter Signed

      First. One page typed letter dated 16 March 1950 on Kennedy's Congress of the United States stationery Signed ("John Kennedy"). Folded as mailed, two tiny stab holes from a removed staple, else fine. A letter sent while Kennedy was a Representative from Massachusetts' 11th District, and co-signed by his cousin, and colleague in the House, James C. Auchincloss, Congressman from New Jersey, to other House colleagues. The letter urges them to sign a discharge petition so that the Home Rule for the City of Washington bill can be brought to the floor of the House for a vote during the current session of Congress, and it eloquently if briefly pleads the case. According to the text, this letter was accompanied by a document listing 25 reasons why the Congressmen should vote for the act (presumably the reason for the staple holes) but this has been lost. A little smear to the fountain pen ink on the letter "J," but a bold, clean, and genuine signature, with the "oh" linkage of the first name clearly matching Kennedy's style of this period (as opposed to that of his secretaries). .

        [Political poster:] Mosley Speaks

      London: by Sanctuary Press, n.d., [1950]. Electric Avenue, Brixton. Sunday, November 26. 5-30 P.M. A3 poster. Framed and glazed. Creased where folded, else in excellent condition. After the war the disgraced British fascist Oswald Mosley started a Union Movement dedicated to creating a united Europe, an idea that aroused a good deal of cynicism coming so soon after his wartime internment. In the 1950s he attacked coloured immigration into Britain, and this poster advertising a 1950 speech at Electric Avenue, Brixton, a bustling street market and key location for West Indian immigrants newly arrived in London, is evocative of his provocative style and repeated political misjudgements. At the end of the decade Mosley stood as Union Movement candidate for North Kensington in the general election of 1959, losing his deposit.
