        "Canada" from Harmonies of the Spheres: 10 Nations Rejoice. Autograph musical manuscript full score arrangement for wind band. Signed. 1991

      An Egyptian-born American composer, performer, ethnomusicologist, and educator, El-Dabh came to the United States in 1950, becoming a part of the New York music scene that included Cage, Varèse, and Hovhaness. He went on to study composition with Krenek, Copland, Dallapiccola, and others. "El-Dabh's compositional style is influenced by Egyptian folk and traditional music. Frequently monodic, his works feature complex rhythms and much use of percussion. His career was launched in 1949 with a highly acclaimed performance of It is Dark and Damp on the Front (1948) at All Saints Cathedral, Cairo. In 1950 he made his début as a solo drummer, under the direction of Stokowski, in the first performance of Tahmeela. Other works include Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962) and Lucifer (1975), commissioned by Martha Graham; Sound and Light of the Pyramids of Giza (1960), written for the Cultural Ministry of the Egyptian Government and performed daily at the pyramids; and New Pharaoh's Suite, written for the Cleveland Museum of Art to accompany a visiting Ethiopian exhibit from the Louvre (1996). Spectrum no.1 'Symphonies in Sonic Vibration' (1955) and Leiyla and the Poet (1959) have been recorded." Denise A. Seachrist in Grove Music Online. An early pioneer of electronic music, El-Dabh composed one of the earliest known works of tape music, or "musique concrète," in 1944, The Expression of Zaar. He also scored four ballets for Martha Graham: Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962), and Lucifer (1975). Harmonies of the Spheres: 10 Nations Rejoice was commissioned for the Middfest International Celebration in Middletown, Ohio.. Small folio (279 x 215 mm.). Unbound. 5 pp. Notated in pencil on 12-stave music paper, rectos only. Together with a one-page draft of an alternative ending.

First edition, one of 300 copies signed by Pablo Neruda, Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros. A landmark of Latin American poetry. Comprised of over 300 poems and 20,000 verses, Neruda's magnum opus explores "pre-Columbian civilizations and the social struggles of oppressed groups during periods of conquest, colonization, independence and modernization . His poetic discourse oscillates between moments of intense lyrical vibrancy like 'Alturas de Macchu Picchu' (Heights of Macchu Picchu) and texts strongly marked by the narration of concrete events . The poet becomes the voice of those who have been subjugated, namely indigenous groups, the working class and Third World nations" (Encyclopedia of Contemporary Latin American and Caribbean Cultures). Publication was forbidden in Chile under the anti-communist regime of Gabriel González Videla, and so was undertaken by subscription in Mexico City; the list of subscribers at the back includes Frida Kahlo, Jorge Amado, Claudio Arrau, Juvencio Valle, Louis Aragon, Paul Eluard, Fernand Leger, Pablo Picasso, Paul Robeson, Luis Buñuel, Nancy Cunard, Luis Barragan, Lázaro Cárdenas, and many others. The magnificent endpapers reproduce in full colors powerful allegorical works by Rivera (front endpapers) and Siqueiros (back endpapers) designed for this edition. Original red cloth stamped in gilt, green ribbon bookmark. Hinges cracked, some soiling to cloth, a bit of fading to gilt on boards, small chip at foot of spine; very good.

        The Novels:] Pride and Prejudice; Sense and Sensibility; Northanger Abbey; Persuasion; Mansfield Park; Emma.

      London: J. D. Dent & Sons Ltd, 1950–55 - 6 works, octavo (180 × 117 mm). Near-contemporary red crushed morocco, spines lettered in gilt with gilt motifs, gilt rules to boards and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, edges gilt. An excellent set. Frontispiece and 15 colour plates to each volume. An attractively bound set of the charmingly illustrated novels, first published with Brock's illustrations between 1907 and 1909. C. E. Brock (1870-1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen for Macmillan's 1895-7 series, though he illustrated only Pride and Prejudice, with Hugh Thomson illustrating the other five titles. That series appeared in black and white, which better suited Thomson's skilful use of line. A decade later J. M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite in colour, and also to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. The colourful costumes and interior decor depicted here are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, as Charles Brock and his brother Henry collected antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.

        Knoll Index of Designs

      Knoll Associates, Inc. 1950 - First Edition. Spiral-bound quarto. Comprehensive catalogue of Knoll's mid-century modern designs. Designed by Herbert Matter, the catalogue is organized into six chapters devoted to "Chairs", "Tables", "Chests, Cabinets, Beds", "Desks, Offices", and "Textiles". Each chapter includes comprehensive black and white photography of the furniture, both isolated and in-situ. Matter's simple yet innovative graphic design is displayed throughout; for example the chapters are divided by a different cardstock, chosen to evoke some element of the materiality that follows. Designers included are Franco Albini, Hans Bellman, Bonet, Kurchan and Hardoy, Pierre Jeanneret, Florence Knoll, Donald Knorr, Mies van der Rohe, George Nakashima, Isamu Noguchi, Eero Saarinen, Abel Sorensen, Richard Stein, Elias Svedberg, Jean Bauret, Michela Bronzini, Dorothy Cole, Eszter Haraszty, Stig Lindberg, Franz lorenz, Noemi Raymond, Astrid Sampe, Marianne Strengell, Angelo Testa, Harry Bertoia, Charles Niedinghaus, and Murray Rothenberg. Additional photographer credits are extended to Hockaday Associates, Erza Stoller and (Robert) Damora. Some light offsetting on the cardstock chapter dividers, small bump evident at base of spiral binding, light wear to edges and corners; a near fine example of a fragile book.

        Chaim Weizmann

      , May 17, 1950. May 17, 1950. Printed Document Signed “Chaim Weizmann” as first President of Israel and “Moshe Sharett” as first Foreign Minister, one page, 25” x 17”. In Hebrew. Completed in manuscript block letters. Hakirya, 1 Sivan 5710 (May 17, 1950). Official embossed 2.5” diameter paper seal affixed near lower edge and embossed with the seal of the State of Israel at top center. Appointment of Chaim Raphael as Deputy Consul of Israel in London. In part, “His jurisdiction will include the entire United Kingdom and Northern Ireland...I hereby request King George the Sixth, and all the authorities with an interest in the matter, to recognize Mr. Chaim Raphael in his declared office, and allow him the freedom to fulfill his role in confidence, to grant him all the rights and immunities her is entitled to by his office and grant him all the assistance and protection he may need...” This document was issued in Hakirya, outside of Tel Aviv, not from Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. A statement of Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion before the Knesset (Israeli parliament) five months earlier, on December 13, 1949, explains: “In the stress of war, when Jerusalem was under siege, we were compelled to establish the seat of Government in Hakirya by Tel Aviv. But for the State of Israel there has always been and always will be one capital only - Jerusalem the eternal. So it was three thousand years ago - and so it will be, we believe, until the end of time.” A career diplomat, Chaim Raphael later served in Australia and Southeast Asia, and as Israel’s Ambassador to Congo (Brazzaville) and Madagascar and Mauritius. He was Israel’s first Ambassador to New Zealand at the time of his death in 1977; before his appointment in 1975, the jurisdiction of the Israeli Ambassador to Australia included New Zealand. Chaim Weizmann was President of Israel from 1948-1952. Moshe Sharett (1894-1965), Israeli Foreign Minister from 1948-1956, was Prime Minister of Israel from 1953-1955. He was a Signer and one of the authors of the Israeli Proclamation of Independence. Foxed and soiled in blank areas at perimeter, tears and soiling in wide right margin. Encapsulated in near fine condition. Matting would eliminate all of the major defects. Israeli diplomatic appointments are scarce and rarely appear on the market. This one, accrediting an Israeli diplomat to the consulate in London, issued just two years after the ending of the British Mandate for Palestine and the birth of the State of Israel, is especially desirable.

        Le Noble Jeu de L'Oie ["The Noble Game of the Goose"] en France, de 1640 à 1950; La Vie Quotidienne à Paris de 1820 à 1824..

      Paris: Librairie Gründ, 1950. First and Limited Edition. Hardcover. Very good +. Number 165 of 700, folio size, 237 pp., illustrated. Le Noble Jeu de L'Oie...("The Noble Game of the Goose") can be traced back to at least 1480, when it was mentioned in an Advent sermon - warning the churchgoers not to play Goose and other games at Christmas. The game is simple, with the players rolling the dice and moving the requisite number of spaces, with no skill on the part of the player required; however, using double dice, the game could reach a fast and furious pitch. While many Americans are not aware of Goose, it has had a profound effect on the development of many board games still played by children today, the circular game board and rules are similar to "Chutes and Ladders." This book, published in 1950, is an authoritative bibliography on the game, presenting examples of many different types of boards used over the centuries with definitive text on the game. Game boards have yielded vast and varying themes, including commerce, industry, sports, fine art, hot air balloons, heraldry, astrology, spiritualism, plants, animals, railways, theater, fashion, children's games, daily life, the alphabet et al. ***DESCRIPTION: Original illustrated paper covered boards, with lettering printed in black to backstrip, plain endpapers, mostly unopened, 48 double-page photo gravures, 9 of which are hand-colored, headers, footers, many textual illustrations and vignettes; folio size (13.25" by 10"), pagination: [1-5] 6-237 [1 colophon], limited edition, number 165 of 700. ***CONDITION: A very good copy with bright plates, text leaves are mostly unopened, no prior owner marks, professionally re-hinged, except for some minor foxing at the edges and slight rubbing at the corners, this is a better than very good, a lovely copy. ***CITATION: Information above from an article by Adrian Seville published in The Ephemera Journal, May 2015. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

This collection includes Bibles of the manuscript age on vellum and on paper; incunabula[r] editions from Germany and Italy; epoch-making versions from England and the Continent during the time of the Reformation; polyglot texts, ranging from three to nine languages; early American imprints; and examples from the finest presses, extending from Jenson to Bruce Rogers." These portfolios were a collaboration between Cleveland Art Institute Dean and lecturer Otto Ege and New York book dealer Philip Duschnes, who specialized in selling individual leaves from manuscripts and early books. In his book "Otto Ege's Manuscripts," Scott Gwara observes, "To some, Otto Frederick Ege (1888-1951) is a scandal. In many cases he cut up more-or-less complete medieval manuscripts to supply middle class American connoisseurs with examples of the Book Beautiful. In fact, he created the American market for single leaves, many thousands of which passed through his hands. To others, however, Ege promoted Book Arts as a professional educator and enthusiast who fostered appreciation for medieval book design, including script, illumination, and mise-en-page." His biblioclasty was anathema to many, but he defended himself, "Surely to allow a thousand people 'to have and to hold' an original manuscript leaf, and to get a thrill and understanding that comes only from actual and frequent contact with these art heritages, is justification enough for the scattering of fragments." Perhaps fittingly, many of his carefully assembled portfolios were themselves broken up, and the leaves sold individually. The last complete 60-leaf portfolio recorded at auction seems to have been the Doheny copy, which sold at Christies for $12,925 in 2001.

        The Marihuana Story (Collection of 15 still photographs from the 1950 film)

      Los Angeles: Sonny Amusement Enterprises, Inc. / S. A. C. L., 1950. Collection of 15 vintage black-and-white still photographs from the 1950 Spanish-Argentine film. The financial success of the 1949 exploitation film "She Shoulda Said No," a morality tale involving the use of marijuana, prompted distributors to import this film from Argentina for distribution in the US. It was a success on the exploitation circuit (drive-ins, grindhouse cinema, etc.), and was even entered at Cannes. Pablo Urioste (Lagar) is a respected surgeon forced to experience a nightmarish world after his wife, a marijuana addict, dies in a nightclub. He unwisely elects to investigate on his own, and through flashbacks he tells his story to the police, about how he was ultimately drugged, beaten, blackmailed, and currently experiencing some bad-trip flashbacks. Klimovsky founded Argentina's first film club in 1929, directed several Spanish horror films (including "La noche de Walpurgis," said to have started the Spanish horror boom of the 1970s), an 1954 Argentine film called "Witchcraft," and the entire 1979 television series "La barraca." Set in Mexico. 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Near Fine. Complete collation details available on request. Schaefer US.

        Moshe Dayan

      May 12, 1950. Autograph Letter Signed <I>“Moshe Dayan,”</I> in Hebrew, two separate pages, 5” x 7”, museum quality framed to 27" x 15", Jerusalem, Israel, May 12, 1950, to the painter Mr. Ludwig Blum thanking him for his kind gift. <br /><br />The letter reads in full: <I>“Dear Mr. Blum, I doubt that I can express in a few words my heartfelt thanks to you for your painting of Jerusalem that you gave me for my birthday. I am not trained, nor am I a certified “expert” in painting, but I have a great deal of interest and feelings for the subject. I have always loved painting. <br /><br />For some time before I came to Jerusalem, I was familiar with your paintings of Jerusalem and of the Judean Desert. Since then, during my time in Jerusalem and up until today, I have continued to take an interest in paintings of Jerusalem made by various artists. Jerusalem has been painted in various styles and using various methods, but for me, the true painter of Jerusalem landscapes in none other than you. And it is no coincidence that in all kinds of ... places, whether it is King Abdullah’s palace at Sachne or the cultural activities room of a kibbutz, your artistry is readily apparent. The painting of Jerusalem that you gave me is particularly appealing. The quietness that permeates it, the wintry colors, the Western Wall and the Temple Mount at its center, all these unite to express its character in a tone that is at once harmonious, quiet and strong. <br /><br />I cannot conclude without touching on another subject – your paintings of our War of Independence. I know what you and Mrs. Blum lost in this war. That fact, more than anything else gives you the obligation to continue to paint and to eternalize personal episodes and images of landscapes that are tied to our wars. I must ask you not to be daunted by the difficulties inherent in this and I urge you to go everywhere and to commit to canvas the pictures that are necessary. If I can be of assistance to you, I will do so wholeheartedly and to the best of my ability. With best wishes and greetings, Yours Moshe Dayan.”</I> <br /><br />Ludwig Blum was born in Czechoslovakia in 1891. In 1919 he studied art at the Prague Academy. His service in the Austrian Army interrupted his studies for 5 years during World War I. Following a great deal of traveling through Europe, Blum, an enthusiastic Zionist, settled in Israel and ultimately Jerusalem in 1923. In 1946 his son, a member of the Palmach, died at age 20. Many of the most interesting canvases date from that time. In 1967, Ludwig Blum received the honorary reward of "Yakir Yerushalayim" for his artistic tribute to the city. Today, Blum occupies a central place among the masters of the state of Israel. His works are found in museums and private collections around the world. Overall in fine condition.

        Harmonies of the Spheres. "Ten Nations Rejoice" for Wind Symphonie[!] Orchestra. Autograph musical manuscript full score. Signed and dated 1991

      An Egyptian-born American composer, performer, ethnomusicologist, and educator, El-Dabh came to the United States in 1950, becoming a part of the New York music scene that included Cage, Varèse, and Hovhaness. He went on to study composition with Krenek, Copland, Dallapiccola, and others. "El-Dabh's compositional style is influenced by Egyptian folk and traditional music. Frequently monodic, his works feature complex rhythms and much use of percussion. His career was launched in 1949 with a highly acclaimed performance of It is Dark and Damp on the Front (1948) at All Saints Cathedral, Cairo. In 1950 he made his début as a solo drummer, under the direction of Stokowski, in the first performance of Tahmeela. Other works include Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962) and Lucifer (1975), commissioned by Martha Graham; Sound and Light of the Pyramids of Giza (1960), written for the Cultural Ministry of the Egyptian Government and performed daily at the pyramids; and New Pharaoh's Suite, written for the Cleveland Museum of Art to accompany a visiting Ethiopian exhibit from the Louvre (1996). Spectrum no.1 'Symphonies in Sonic Vibration' (1955) and Leiyla and the Poet (1959) have been recorded." Denise A. Seachrist in Grove Music Online. An early pioneer of electronic music, El-Dabh composed one of the earliest known works of tape music, or "musique concrète," in 1944, The Expression of Zaar. He also scored four ballets for Martha Graham: Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962), and Lucifer (1975). Harmonies of the Spheres: 10 Nations Rejoice was commissioned for the Middfest International Celebration in Middletown, Ohio.. Large folio (355 x 278 mm.). Unbound. 25 pp. Notated in pencil on 20-stave "Judy Green" music paper, rectos only. 1f. (title including description of extensive percussion forces and performance instructions). With "To Middfest Ten Nations Celebration" to head of first page of music. With occasional evidence of re-writings and/or corrections including additions in blue pencil. Together with: 4 pp. of autograph musical sketches and a 3-page textual draft of a poem entitled "Harmonies of the Spheres;" a typescript copy of the final text; and two photocopies of the poem, all with some annotations in pencil.

        Costume Sketch Signed, in color, identified on verso, "Betty Grable in 'Call Me Mister' 1951." 10 x 12 inches

      - Le Maire has drawn two sketches on one sheet of medium heavy stock. The large costume appears to be rendered in black artist's pencil and water color and the smaller one to the right in pencil and ink, this smaller sketch showing another view of the costume. Le Maire signs in ink with date "51" and titles the drawing, "Betty Grable - 'Call Me Mister.'"His costume design shows a Japanese woman in a blue and silver kimono, holding a bouquet possibly of cherry blossoms with complimentary blossoms in her hair. As identified on verso in another hand, the design was to be worn by Betty Grable playing the part of an American entertainer in Japan after World War II in the film, "Call Me Mister." Very attractive and in fine condition with sunning along edges. Le Maire's career spanned six decades from the 1920s through 1950s. After promoting the creation of an Academy Award for Costume Design, he received three Oscars for the new category for the films "All about Eve" 1950, "The Robe" 1953, "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing" 1955.

        ORIGINAL LEAVES FROM FAMOUS BIBLES. NINE CENTURIES 1121-1935 A.D.

      Cleveland: For the author, [ca. 1950]. ONE OF 100 SETS OF "SERIES B," with 60 leaves. This is an uncommonly seen complete set of one of the great leaf books of the 20th century. As stated on the contents page: "Sixty leaves from famous and rare Bibles and Testaments, dating from the 12th to the 20th century, have been selected to illustrate important changes in content and format. This collection includes Bibles of the manuscript age on vellum and on paper; incunabula[r] editions from Germany and Italy; epoch-making versions from England and the Continent during the time of the Reformation; polyglot texts, ranging from three to nine languages; early American imprints; and examples from the finest presses, extending from Jenson to Bruce Rogers." These portfolios were a collaboration between Cleveland Art Institute Dean and lecturer Otto Ege and New York book dealer Philip Duschnes, who specialized in selling individual leaves from manuscripts and early books. In his book "Otto Ege's Manuscripts," Scott Gwara observes, "To some, Otto Frederick Ege (1888-1951) is a scandal. In many cases he cut up more-or-less complete medieval manuscripts to supply middle class American connoisseurs with examples of the Book Beautiful. In fact, he created the American market for single leaves, many thousands of which passed through his hands. To others, however, Ege promoted Book Arts as a professional educator and enthusiast who fostered appreciation for medieval book design, including script, illumination, and mise-en-page." His biblioclasty was anathema to many, but he defended himself, "Surely to allow a thousand people 'to have and to hold' an original manuscript leaf, and to get a thrill and understanding that comes only from actual and frequent contact with these art heritages, is justification enough for the scattering of fragments." Perhaps fittingly, many of his carefully assembled portfolios were themselves broken up, and the leaves sold individually. The last complete 60-leaf portfolio recorded at auction seems to have been the Doheny copy, which sold at Christies for $12,925 in 2001.. 515 x 355 mm. (20 1/4 x 14"). 2 p.l., 60 matted leaves. Collected and annotated by Otto Ege. ONE OF 100 SETS OF "SERIES B," with 60 leaves. Loose as issued, housed in original light brown buckram box, black morocco label on upper cover. WITH FOUR MANUSCRIPT LEAVES AND 56 PRINTED LEAVES, as called for, in archival mats with descriptive labels written by Ege. Prospectus and contents leaf with ink stamp of book dealer Philip C. Duschnes. Short split to front joint of clamshell box, which also shows slight wear, but the box still solid and pleasing, and the contents in very fine condition. This is an uncommonly seen complete set of one of the great leaf books of the 20th century. As stated on the contents page: "Sixty leaves from famous and rare Bibles and Testaments, dating from the 12th to the 20th century, have been selected to illustrate important changes in content and format.
