        29 autogr. messages and one autograph letter signed ("Dix"), two of which have hand drawings.

      N. p., [c. 1950]. - Various formats. Highly perfunctory letter, probably to the violinist Hanni Rocco (1896-1990), whom Dix had met in the 1940s in the Höri artists' colony and who had lived in Hemmenhofen with her friend Maria Proells until 1953. Dix informs her that she can obtain his work from the Klihm Gallery and requests her not to bother him with trifling matters, in view of his laziness and copious correspondence. - The messages, most of them rather short, are probably to Roccos companion, the pianist and painter Maria Proelss (1892-1962), and concern forthcoming visits, various requests, etc. (with occasional references to "Miss Rocco"). Some of these are written on clipped slips of paper (including 3 military letters and 2 fragments of cigarette boxes); one postcard bears the drawing of a little girl with a flower.

        [Oil Painting]: Fishes

      Oil painting on laminated panel. Approximately 26 x 20.5cm. (10" x 8"). Unframed. Signed in the lower left. Slight rubbing at the edges of the boards, near fine. Old (circa 1950?) label on back from Mortimer Levitt Gallery in Manhattan stating price at $75 (later lower to $65). Partly representational, partly abstract depiction of a school of fish rendered in a heavy impasto style. According to the website of Riverside Community College, which holds her papers: "Mine Okubo was born in Riverside, California, on June 27, 1912, to immigrant Japanese parents. She attended Riverside Junior College, (now Riverside City College), and subsequently obtained a bachelor's degree in fine arts as well as a master's degree from the University of California, Berkeley. She won a fellowship in 1938 to study art in Europe, and returned to the United States just before the outbreak of World War II. She was employed doing public art projects through the federal WPA in the San Francisco area, and worked with Mexican muralist Diego Rivera for the Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay. She was working on a mural when war with Japan was declared. She and her brother were incarcerated briefly at Tanforan Relocation Camp and subsequently transferred to the Central Utah Relocation Camp in Topaz, Utah. While in the camp, Mine Okubo taught art and did numerous pen and ink drawings depicting life in the relocation center, which later provided the material for Citizen 13660. She entered a magazine contest with a drawing of a camp guard, and Fortune magazine, recognizing her talent, offered her a job in New York that led to her release from the camp. With some help, she found an apartment in Greenwich Village where she would live for the next 50 years, vigorously participating in the New York art scene and creating works of art that were exhibited from Boston to Tokyo. Her book, Citizen 13660, published in 1946, was the first account of the wartime Japanese American relocation and confinement experience, and is regarded as a landmark work." Okubo died in 2001 at age 88. .

        [Typescript]: The Rose Tattoo (A Play in Three Parts)

      September 1950. Carbon typescript. Quarto. 77pp. Sheets bradbound in the blue "Liebling-Wood" folder of Williams's agent, Audrey Wood. The light blue wrappers a bit worn with tears at the foredge and spine ends, and missing one of the original brads, very good plus. Labeled "Third draft, Europe, September, 1950" on the first sheet along with a red pencil notation that reads, "1st Typing" on the first page, as well as two minor corrections in the Introduction. This copy also includes the epigraph from the poem Anabasis on the first sheet that was used intermittently by Williams throughout his many draft.The Rose Tattoo is Williams's first full-length comedy which he called his "love-play to the world." It concerns a Sicilian widow from the Gulf Coast and her attempts to protect her attractive young daughter while dealing with her own renewed passions. This draft was completed after learning that Elia Kazan had passed on directing the play to do a film with Arthur Miller, a snub that greatly disheartened Williams. Nevertheless, the play, which debuted on Broadway in early 1951, won the Tony Awards for best play as well as best actor and best actress awards for Eli Wallach and Maureen Stapleton. A 1955 film version was also a success, starring Burt Lancaster and Anna Magnani, who was won the Oscar for best actress. .

        Boccherini's Minuet and the Caliph of Baghdad"

      [n.p.]: , 1950. - A Scarce Original, Autobiographical DrawingNot to be Pooh-Pooh'edSHEPARD, E[rnest] H. Boccherini's Minuet and the Caliph of Baghdad [N.p.: n.d., ca. 1950]. Original pen-and-ink drawing by renowned illustrator Ernest H. Shepard of himself at age seven, with his sister Ethel, a few years older, depicting them in practice during a screeching violin lesson. Image size: 3 3/4 x 6 7/16 inches; 95 x 164 mm. Signed with initials at lower left. Matted, framed and glazed. A delightful image of Shepard's childhood, which originally appeared in his autobiography, Drawn from Memory (1957), and was later reproduced only once, on page twenty-seven of The Work of E.H. Shepard by Rawle Knox (1979). Found on page thirty-three of Drawn from Memory, it is captioned, "My little fingers never seemed to be in the right place." "Once a week we all three of us [siblings] had a music lesson. We had violins of different sizes and were taught by Mr. Cruft. It was dreadfully tedious having to play scales and my fingers never seemed to be in the right places, but it was better when I was promoted to Boccherini's Minuet. By that time Ethel could rattle along with The Caliph of Baghdad" (Drawn from Memory, p. 33)."When I am goneLet Shepard decorate my tomband put (if there is room)Two pictures on the stone:Piglet from page a hundred and eleven,And Pooh and Piglet walking (157) . . .And Peter, thinking they they are my own,Will welcome me to heaven."- A.A. Milne, inscription to Shepard's copy of Winnie-the-PoohErnest Howard Shepard (1879-1976), "was born only a five-minute walk from the birthplace of A.A. Milne, but it would be many years before their first meeting when their names would be linked for all time to one of the most loved of all bears. He contributed a weekly drawing to Punch for many years. He was perhaps the most-loved illustrator of 'children's' books, best remembered for When We Were Very Young, Winnie-the-Pooh, Now We Are Six and The House At Pooh Corner, Kenneth Grahame's classics The Wind In The Willows, Dream Days and The Golden Age and a book which later became the favourite reading of Christopher Robin Milne, Bevis, the Story of a Boy by Richard Jefferies."Shepard's autobiographical books, Drawn from Memory (1957) and Drawn From Life (1962) are joyfully written and present a superb picture of England's upper middle classes. His drawings in over fifty books frequently poked fun at social contretemps and domestic perplexity, especially where children were involved. His illustrations continued to show extraordinary vigour and vivacity throughout his long working life."In his eighty-ninth year, he visited old friends and relations in Cape Town, Durban, Perth, Sydney and Tasmania, returning through Tahiti so that he could look at Gauguin relics" (Peter Dennis, Poohcorner).

        Mounted & framed original wooblock by Jean Chieze, used to illustrate the L'Union Latine D'Editions edition of "Hippocrate" [Hippocrates].

      From printed label on back of frame: "Bois original grave par Jean Chieze utilise pour le tirage de Hippocrate edite par L'Union Latine D'Editions - Paris". - A 4 5/8" x 6 5/8", mounted, original woodblock, engraved by Jean Chieze, and used to illustrated the edition of Hippocrates published in Paris (ca. 1950's). This block is an elaborate study of early surgical instruments & an "anatomical" woman seated in an open cabinet; her abdomen has been dissected to reveal, uterus, kidneys, bladder, etc. The top and open doors of this cabinet are hung with various types of surgical instruments, in front of this cabinet a table top displays 15-20 other early instruments that might have been used in early obstetric surgery (in caesarian section, etc.), including bone saw, mallet, syringe, forceps, scapels, knives, sponge, flask, suture thread, etc., many of these instruments & the entire illustration has a 16th century medical/anatomical appearance. The background of the wooden block has been covered in white pigment & then the raised surfaces of the engraving have been brushed with black ink, so the image can be viewed as an illustration. The block has been mounted in a recessed panel, which has been covered in a maroon velvet backing & placed into a standing or hanging 8 1/4" x 10 1/2" (x 1" deep), black-surfaced, wooden frame, with surfaces of panel and woodblock set below the open (unglazed) front of the frame; the back of the frame is covered in black fabric & has a mounted brass ring for hanging the piece, and also, a sturdy, fold-out flap, which opens out, so the frame can stand on a flat surface. Underneath the flap is pasted the printed French title label (text given above), identifying the block. Back surface of frame shows slight rubbing, light scratches, edges of frame show a little rubbing off of black paint, else in fine condition, with no cracks or slashes through woodblock. We have been unable to determine if any other of the blocks illustrating this edition were themselves framed & issued as an edition. A very striking (and slightly fantastic) medical image, that might not be suitable for display in all locations, but a beautiful & delicately cut example of Chieze's wood-engraving. Wood-engraver Jean Chieze (1898-1975) illustrated Cervantes, Poe, Erasmus & many other classic authors. Rare item! Weight: 2 lbs. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Spillane's deletions are substantial, his changes and corrections are numerous, on nearly every page, and are virtually all in his hand (there are a few copy editor's or typesetter's corrections as well). Signed twice by the author and dated 27 September 1950 (the novel was published in 1951). Near fine, the top sheet, as usual, exhibiting the most wear. Hammer finds a ring of Commies and kills them by the score (literally, at one point dispatching 40 by machine gun!). Housed in a full morocco clamshell case. .

        Fine pencil, ink and watercolor design for a New Yorker cover

      No place, [ca. 1950] - Although this is a preparatory drawing, it is a well-rendered, lively, and highly decorative image, consisting of a montage of fall motifs: colorful foliage, spacious skies, amber grain, purple mountains, fruited plains, a church, a silo, a school complete with child, tourist directions, with "The New Yorker" lettered at the top and a vertical border of grapes at the left edge. Although not used as a cover, this delightful design would have made a wonderful one. One the verso of the drawing is a portion of an ink sketch of a mother, daughter, and lady visitor in a living room. Barbara Shermund, a talented artist, did a number of cartoon drawings for popular magazines. Along with Helen Hokinson and Mary Petty, she was also one of the few female artists to work extensively for The New Yorker 12 1/2" x 9 1/2"; in an archival mat, overall dimensions 18" x 15". . On medium-weight art paper, fine condition
