        Colonel Crockett

      1950 - A striking and lovely image of a central figure in the mythology of the American West. Davy Crockett (1786-1836) remains the archetype of the early American frontiersman: fighting Indians, guiding settlers, and leading cattle. Though tied to the land that he helped to tame, Crockett was an active volunteer in the War of 1812, serving as a scout for General Jackson's army. Later, he became involved in politics and served in the Tennessee state legislature, 1822-1827. Crockett held a seat in Congress from 1827 until 1835, when he joined the movement for Texan Independence, and met his death in 1836 during the heroic defense of the Alamo. John Gadsby Chapman (1808-1889) had met Crockett in the early 1830s and had painted a portrait study. Crockett's death defending the Alamo in 1836 immediately made him a national hero, and Chapman worked up a full-length portrait. This was exhibited in the fall of 1838 at the Apollo Gallery, an exhibition space which had just been founded in New York by a group of artists including Chapman. This painting was acquired for the State of Texas and hung in the State Capitol, where it was later destroyed when a fire consumed the building. Another version was obtained from the artist; this picture now hangs in the Harry Ranson Research Center, University of Texas at Austin. The engraving states that it was published by the Apollo Gallery, New York, in 1839 (though this is a mid-20th century impression from the original plate). This is consistent with the entry in a catalogue issued by the Apollo Gallery in October 1839, which describes an engraved version (number 240). There was an engraver of portraits in mezzotint named Charles Stuart working in New York in 1841, who must be the engraver of this portrait. In the portrait, Crockett stands in his buckskins, looking to his left, his right arm outstretched, holding his broad-brimmed hat. In his left arm he cradles a long rifle, and a knife is tucked into his belt. Three obedient dogs gaze up at him and he stands in a small clearing with a shock of wheat and some trees behind him. The original 1839 version of this print is so rare as to be unobtainable, and is lacking from most major institutional collections. The last we can trace for sale was one offered by the Old Print Shop on the front cover of the Portfolio , in May 1963 for $ 200. (this at a time when the major Audubon prints were still in three figures). Hand-coloured mezzotint, engraved by Charles Stuart. Beautifully printed in the mid-20th century from the original 19th century copper plate, with wide margins, on hand-made paper.

      Harcourt, Brace and Company, New York 1950 - A Fine, bright copy of the book with just a few spots on the top-stain, otherwise pristine. In a Fine dust jacket with only the most trivial wear at the extremities and slight browning at the top of the flaps. A book that is rarely found in such lovely shape. A fantastic example of Kerouac's first book. This work was heavily influenced by the writing of Tom Wolfe and intensely edited. The following year Kerouac would write his second novel, "On the Road," marking a dramatic shift in writing style to the quintessential voice of "Beat" literature. An interesting first novel from one of the most important and influential writers to come out of the mid-twentieth century. "In this big, rambling first novel, John Kerouac tells of a Massachusetts family that is gradually dissolved by the recent war, the forces of modern life and the passage of time. a rough diamond of a book." (Contemporary New York Times Review). Fine in Fine. dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Fayer,, Wien, 1950 - Wien, Fayer, o. J. [um 1950]. Fotographen-St. a. Rückseite. - Furtwängler, (1886 - 1954), verlebte seine Kindheit in Berlin und in München, wo sein Vater seit 1894 als o.Prof. an der Univ. lehrte. Aufgewachsen in einem humanistisch bestimmten Elternhaus, erhielt Furtwängler früh Privatunterricht. Zu seinen Lehrern gehörten u.a. der Archäologe Ludwig Curtius, der Bildhauer Adolf von Hildebrand sowie der Kunsthistoriker und Musikwissenschaftler Walter Riezler, der später das Nachwort zu F.s Schrift Brahms und Bruckner verfaßte. Da seine musikalischen Begabungen früh zutage traten, erhielt er Unterricht in Tonsatz und Komposition von Anton Beer-Walbrunn, Joseph Rheinberger und Max von Schillings. Am Klavier bildete ihn der Liszt-Schüler Conrad Ansorge aus . 1922 trat Furtwängler, der sich bereits zu diesem Zeitpunkt den Ruf als führender Kapellmeister Deutschlands erworben hatte, die Nachfolge Arthur Nikischs als Leiter sowohl des Berliner Philharmonischen Orchesters als auch des Leipziger Gewandhausorchesters an. In diese Zeit fallen seine intensive Studien mit dem befreundeten Wiener Musikgelehrten Heinrich Schenker, durch die er sich die Fähigkeit erwarb, ein musikalisches Kunstwerk gedanklich vollkommen zu durchdringen . In zahlreichen Konzerten mit "seinem" Orchester, den Berliner Philharmonikern, und als Gastdirigent aller bedeutenden Orchester im In- und im (europäischen) Ausland behauptete Furtwängler auch nach dem Krieg seine unumstrittene Stellung als Orchesterleiter von Weltruf.

With the pictorial dust jacket. With 80 black and white photographs, 10 by Robert Doisneau, and diagrams in the text. Joints split at upper end, some light spotting to boards, front and rear inner hinges starting, endpapers and text leaves slightly tanned. A very good copy in a chipped, rubbed and lightly creased jacket with tape repairs to verso, especially to split spine panel. First edition, first impression, of this mesmerising anthropological study of tattoos in late 1940s Paris. The book's author, the poet, novelist and journalist Robert Giraud (1921–1997), introduced his friend Robert Doisneau to the Parisian underworld as early as 1947. "With him I met people on the edges of society. People who were complete outlaws. Bob loved listening to prostitutes and pimps; I thought they were all rather stupid. Whores telling dirty stories, it wasn't really my thing. But the pseudo distinction of working for Vogue wasn't neither, I'd had enough of that job. All things considered, I was actually getting over my depression as a high society photographer with the energetic help of my friend Giraud!" (Robert Doisneau).

        Men Against the Stars

      New York: Gnome Press, 1950. New York: Gnome Press, 1950 New York: Gnome Press, 1950. First Edition. Introduction by Willy Ley. Edited by Martin Greenberg, this copy signed, inscribed and presented by him to Arthur C. Clarke. Octavo, 351 pp. Purple cloth-backed gray cloth boards, with silver spine titling and blindstamped launching-spaceship and star motif on purple margin. Pictorial dustjacket by sci-fi illustration luminary Edd Cartier. A near fine book, with only minor page edge soiling and a trace of partial spine fade, in a Very Good + jacket, showing light perimeter wear. Singular copy, inscribed and presented to Arthur C. Clarke by Greenberg, with provenance of unimpeachable order accompanying the book. An increasingly classic collection of short stories by some of the now-timeless sci-fi names. Willy Ley: "Here is a different type of anthology. This book, taken in its entirety, tells a story: the conquest of space. Moving from man's first attempt to reach the moon to the exploration of the ends of the universe, these stories are among the finest ever published." - Willy Ley. Hailed by critics at the time of its publication as a quantum leap forward in both quality and concept for science fiction anthologies, Martin Greenberg's thematically edited Men Against the Stars is a collection of twelve lengthy stories whose authors read like a Who's Who of Golden Age sci-fi, including Isaac Asimov, Murray Leinster, A.E. Van Vogt, L. Ron Hubbard [Hubbard's "When Shadows Fall" is here], and E.M. Hull. Not a slap-dash aggregation to get to the printer quickly, Greenberg's collection was a thoroughly contemplated and planned project, a selection of the very finest available stories on theme, ranging back as far as 1939. Nicely complimented by a Cartier's funky pure genre period stylization jacket. A sci-fi presentation copy of the highest sort, that of a veteran and astute editor to a future superstar. Arthur C. Clarke's reputation at the time was already becoming established, and Greenberg shows the admiration in his skilled critical eye for Clarke's sci-fi talents in his presentation remark. As always, please feel free to ask questions or request additional scans. L53n

Containig issues CVIII (parts I and II), CIX (parts I and II), and CX (parts I and II). Including articles on hunting, country houses, historical events, and much more. The magazine covers the pleasures and joys of rural life, as well as the concerns of rural people. It is primarily concerned with rural communities and their environments as well as the concerns of country dwellers and landowners and has a diverse readership which, although mainly UK based is also international. Much of its success has historically been built on its coverage of country houses, architecture and gardening. Country Life was launched in 1897, incorporating Racing Illustrated. At this time it was owned by Edward Hudson, the owner of Lindisfarne Castle and various Lutyens-designed houses including The Deanery in Sonning. At that time golf and racing served as its main content, as well as the property coverage, initially of manorial estates, that has become its mainstay. Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the late Queen Mother, used to appear frequently on its front cover. The frontispiece, which usually features a young woman from a landed British family, is very well known and is called popularly Girls in Pearls, showing upper class British rural life in its most ideal light. Condition: In a green cloth binding. Externally, generally smart, though with some marks and light bumping to the spines . Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        Importante carteggio composto da tre lettere autografe firmate e un opuscolo dattiloscritto del docente di Teologia Dogmatica in seminario e Vicario diocesano che promosse una piccola comunità monastica sostenitrice di una riforma della chiesa in senso spiritualistico, ponendosi cosà in dissidio con le gerarchie ecclesiastiche. Sospeso dai principali incarichi (1950), Don Angelo, fu ridotto allo stato laicale nel 1949. Continuò la sua predicazione attraverso numerosi scritti e conferenze. Tutte le missive sono dirette a Rino Ferrari e risalgono al 1950. Interessante testimonianza dell'attività dell'ecclesiastico che, negli anni successivi alla scomunica, si adoperò nella pubblicazione di articoli e opuscoli a sostegno dell'Opera di Dio. Seguono alcuni dei brani più significativi. Dall'opuscolo datato Reggio Emilia 14 / 8 / 50: non sono i sontuosi artistici templi, non sono gli sfarzosi riti esteriori, ma è la comprensione, la bontà, la misericordia, la benevolenza, l'amore che scuotono, orientano, incoraggiano, attraggono e spingono ad intraprendere la via del bene chi l'ha da lungo smarrita Potei forse non esprimervi tutta la compiacenza del nostro Dio per tutta l'industria, il sacrificio, il tormento che vi ponete non tanto per la diffusione degli Opuscoli quanto per la diffusione delle Verità che vi sono annunciate e sempre più facilmente vi saranno annunciate. è preziosa la collaborazione che voi cosà spontaneamente date e non solo date a me, a noi, ma all'Opera di Dio per tutte le creature di Dio? (dalla lettera dat. Reggio Emilia 26 / 4 / 50).

        Boletus Flavus L. Collected L'Islet County, Que. 1950. [Original watercolor with convolute of related materials]

      , 1950. 1950. Original watercolor, 17 x 22 cm. Labeled, signed and dated by the artist in pencil. On watercolor paper which had been mounted on a thicker card stock, now de-laminated, but in remarkably fine condition. Henry A.C. Jackson (1877-1960) was one of Canada's outstanding amateur naturalists. He was the elder brother of landscape painter A.Y. Jackson, and while A.Y. achieved great fame through his art, Henry chose to quietly document his mycological journeys in Quebec through copious note taking and watercolor paintings of the collected specimens. After his death in 1960, much of his work was donated to the National Gallery of Canada. In 1979 The National Gallery mounted an exhibition of the watercolors, and produced the catalogue, Mr. Jackson's Mushrooms which reproduces forty-odd images, and accompanies them with excerpts from his field notes. Very few of Jackson's mushroom watercolors have reached the market, with only a few having been given to friends and neighbors over the years. A small convolute of related materials accompanies the watercolor, including: The Fungus Records of Mr. H.A.C. Jackson From L'Islet Co., Quebec 1941-1960. (offprint from The Canadian Field Naturalist, vol. 7, no. 4 (1963); Notes on the Higher Fungi Collected in Lasalle, Que., 1930-1940 offprint from C.F.N., vol. 62, no. 5. (1948); 18 pages of original manuscript and typescript of Jackson's Field notes from 1932 and 33; three original photographs, 6 x 9cm each. Two of the photos depict the artist, at a youthful age, in the field. The third depicts an unidentified fungus on a log.

        The Traveller's Tree: A Journey Through the Caribbean Islands

      London: John Murray, 1950.. London: John Murray, 1950. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, green cloth. Signed by Leigh Fermor on the title page. Fine in a very good dust jacket with a few small closed tears. A very sharp copy. In the late 1940s Patrick Leigh Fermor, now widely regarded as one of the twentieth century's greatest travel writers, set out to explore the then relatively little-visited islands of the Caribbean. Rather than a comprehensive political or historical study of the region, The Traveller's Tree, Leigh Fermor's first book, gives us his own vivid, idiosyncratic impressions of Guadeloupe, Martinique, Dominica, Barbados, Trinidad, and Haiti, among other islands. Here we watch Leigh Fermor walk the dusty roads of the countryside and the broad avenues of former colonial capitals, equally at home among the peasant and the elite, the laborer and the artist. He listens to steel drum bands, delights in the Congo dancing that closes out Havana's Carnival, and observes vodou and Rastafarian rites, all with the generous curiosity and easy erudition that readers will recognize from his subsequent classic accounts A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water" (New York Review Books).
