Containing thirty-two colour plates and six monochrome plates (collated complete). With an introduction by Bartolomeo Nogara. Raphael's work is admired for its clarity of form and ease of composition and for its visual achievement of the Neoplatonic ideal of human grandeur. Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, he forms the traditional trinity of great masters of that period. The Vatican projects took most of his time, although he painted several portraits, including those of his two main patrons, the popes Julius II and his successor Leo X, the former considered one of his finest. He also designed and painted the Loggia at the Vatican, a long thin gallery then open to a courtyard on one side, decorated with Roman-style grottesche. Condition: In a cloth folder-style binding with paper covered boards. Externally sound, though with some marks. Labels to spine. Library label to front pastedown. Pages are unbound.

        L'Unite D'Habitation de Marseille.

      Le Point, Souillac 1950 - First edition. Small quarto, original wrappers with the dust jacket. Inscribed by Le Corbusier and dated in December 1950. In very good condition with some light rubbing. The subject of this book by Le Corbusier is among his most well-known works, L'Unite D'Habitation de Marseille, which inspired the Brutalist architectural style and philosophy. An important work of twentieth century architecture, exceptionally rare signed and inscribed by Le Corbusier. The Unité d'Habitation (Housing Unit) is the name of a modernist residential housing design principle developed by Le Corbusier. The concept formed the basis of several housing developments designed by him throughout Europe with this name.The first and certainly most famous of these buildings is located in Marseille, France, and was built in the late 1940's. The Unité in Marseille is pending designation as a World Heritage site by UNESCO and was designated a historic monument by the French Ministry of Culture. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Inscribed photograph

      , [c.1950]. [c.1950]. Black and white photograph (252 × 204 mm). Presented in handmade black and gold leaf frame. Small crease to bottom left corner and another 2/3 of the way up left edge, very small mark at the margin of bottom right corner. Otherwise in excellent condition. A smouldering early publicity photo of Marlon Brando, inscribed to his longtime friend Sam Gilman (1915-85), "To the lad with a prick like an ice-cream cone - Best, Sloot". Gilman, a friend of Marlon's since their NY days, appeared in several films (often Westerns, such as The Missouri Breaks) together beginning with The Wild One in 1953. Gilman was part of the actor's triumvirate of friends, including actor and comedian Wally Cox and Brando himself, who loved fooling around together, though Gilman often played critic to Brando and Cox's fool. Gilman's wife remembered how Brando also attempted to invade their relationship, often asking embarrassing questions about their sex life. The present inscription, to a long-standing friend and fellow actor, thus evokes Brando in this role, a mischievous and mercurial joker. One of Brando's numerous children by unidentified women, Michael (1967-), was in fact adopted by Gilman. As a somewhat morbid though nonetheless touching footnote, when Brando died in 2004, the ashes of Brando, Gilman and Cox were all scattered together over Death Valley, Brando having kept his predeceasing friends' remains in his possession until that day.

        [Faulkner, William] To the Voters of Oxford

      Oxford, Miss.: , 1950 Oxford, Miss., 1950. First edition. An original copy of Faulkner's famous "Beer Broadside" containing four arguments for legalizing the sale of beer in Oxford, Mississippi. This was Faulkner's direct challenge to an earlier broadside distributed by a group of clergy calling for the sale of beer to remain illegal. Contains the blemish to "because" in point 1. According to Petersen, there were likely two impressions of the broadside, the first without the blemish to "because" and the second with the blemish. Others have suggested a single impression, with the blemish merely due to type batter that might have occurred during the print run. Very small stain to lower left corner, creases from mailing, else a near fine copy of a scarce Faulkner item.

        The Chronicles of Narnia Set: The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, The Horse and His Boy, The Magician's Nephew, The Last Battle

      London: Geofrey Bles, 1950-1956.. London: Geofrey Bles, 1950-1956. First British editions of each of the seven volumes in the author's acclaimed Narnia Series. Each volume is finely bound in three quarters green morocco. Marbled endpapers. Housed in a custom slipcase. Illustrations by Pauline Baynes. Octavo, seven volumes. An attractive set. The Chronicles of Narnia is "…unforgettable not only for the excitement and suspense of the adventures but also for the strong emotions they describe so well… [and they are] further enriched by Lewis' skillful use of language" (Silvey, 406). "Each book has something new and different to offer and there is no weakening of either inspiration or interest" (Eyre, 132). It is interesting that Lewis' inspiration came from a dream: "At first I had very little idea how the story would go. But then suddenly Aslan came bounding into it. I think I had been having a good many dreams of lions about that time…[O]nce he was there, he pulled the whole story together, and soon he pulled the six other Narnian stories in after him (On Stories: And Other Essays on Literature, 1980). Lewis was "concerned to do for children what he had done for an adult readership in his science fiction… to re-imagine the…story in an exciting narrative context… [The Narnia books are] intoxicating to all but the most relentlessly unimaginative of readers, and must be judged the most sustained achievement in fantasy for children by a 20th-century author" (Carpenter & Pritchard, 370).

First edition, first printing. Burning Bright was written as an experiment with producing a play in novel format. Rather than providing only the dialogue and brief stage directions as would be expected in a play, Steinbeck fleshes out the scenes with details of both the characters and the environment. The intention was to allow the play to be read by the non-theatrical reader while still allowing the dialogue to be lifted and performed with little adaptation by acting companies. Condition: In a grey cloth binding with original unclipped dustwrapper. Externally, generally smart, with just some slight shelfwear. Dustwrapper is sound, though with some edgewear and handling marks. Internally, firmly bound. Ink signature to front free-endpaper. Pages are generally bright and clean, aside from a few patches of foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD in a GOOD dustwrapper..

      New York, 1950. New York, 1950. unbound. 1 page, 6.75 x 5 inches, New York City, no date, circa 1950. This extremely rare letter was written to William Vandenberg and mentions Victor Gottlieb, in full: "The housekeeper did not understand when you are staying but fortunately, found out from Victor Gottlieb. Will be at my number from mid-day until 3 pm. Please call me. Sincerely, William Primrose." Most likely written in 1950 when all three icons appeared together as part of a concert at Carnegie Hall. Natural folds; traces of pencil notations in the top margin. Very good condition. One of the greatest violinists best known for his tremendous technique and early association with Arturo Toscanini. He left the NBC Symphony Orchestra in 1941 for a commission with Bella Bartok, who died before its completion. As one of the most sought after violinists, he insisted on collaborating with the likes of Micha Elman, Jascha Heifetz, and Fritz Kreisler, etc.
