        The Martian Chronicles, the first edition in dust jacket, inscribed and dated by the author at the 44th World Science Fiction Convention at which Bradbury was the Guest of Honor

      New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1950. First edition. Hardcover. This is an inscribed and jacketed first edition of Bradbury's first major work and enduring classic, The Martian Chronicles. The inscription, inked in black in three lines on the title page, reads: "Ed! Good Wishes | Ray Bradbury | 8/31/86". This copy was thus inscribed during the 44th World Science Fiction Convention in Atlanta, at which Bradbury was the Guest of Honor. First edition is so stated on the copyright page. The first issue dust jacket is confirmed by an intact “$2.50” price on the upper front flap. Condition is good plus in a very good dust jacket. The first edition's pale green cloth binding proved notoriously prone to toning and discoloration. This copy is square and tight with sharp corners and only trivial wrinkling to spine ends, but nonetheless modestly toned to the spine and the perimeter of the boards with typical mottling to the boards. The contents are clean with no previous ownership marks apart from the author's signature. We note just two spots to the otherwise clean fore edges, light dust soiling to the top edge, and tape stains to the blank endpapers (one each at the top and bottom of each page), consonant with an old dust jacket protector. The jacket is complete with good color apart from a barely toned spine. We note light wear to spine ends, corners, and front hinge and a hint of soiling to the rear face. The jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. The Martian Chronicles was Bradbury's first major work, a collection of short stories, some of which had been previously published in magazines. Bradbury paints a compelling vision of a Mars that was, supplanted by a Mars that humans colonized and squandered, and thereafter the intimation of a Mars that might be, all of this a backdrop for the destructive energies and perennial seeds of hope endemic to humanity. Since 1950, the learned realities of a far more sterile Mars than Bradbury imagined for us have not diminished Bradbury's tale. A quarter of a century after it was published, Martin Gardner wrote: “Critics have said it is Bradbury's best book because there is more science in it than in his other books. I believe the opposite to be true… That is not a weakness… That is why, long after Mars has become a hearth to us, The Martian Chronicles will keep on stirring imaginations, arousing laughter and tears, and haunting the minds of those who have not forgotten how to read.” More than half a century after publication, in 2008, NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander carried a DVD containing The Martian Chronicles to the Martian surface. Raymond Douglas Bradbury (1920-2012) was a versatile and prolific American author best known for his science fiction. Bradbury devoted several hours a day to writing throughout his life and produced nearly 30 books, 600 short stories, and numerous poems, essays, screenplays, and plays. The Bradbury family moved to Los Angeles in 1934 and Bradbury's first remuneration for writing came from a joke he wrote for George Burns. His first story was published in 1938, the year he graduated from high school. The following year he published four issues of his own magazine, writing all of the content, sometimes under pseudonyms to hide the fact that it was a one-man operation. Rejected for military service in WWII because of poor eyesight, Bradbury became a full-time writer in 1943. He wrote well into his 80's, earning a host of accolades from both fans and fellow writers. The Science Fiction Writers of America named him their 10th Grand Master in 1989. An asteroid is named after him, and a crater on the Moon is named after his novel Dandelion Wine. In 2007, Bradbury received a special citation from the Pulitzer board for his "distinguished, prolific and deeply influential career as an unmatched author of science fiction and fantasy.” His New York Times obituary called Bradbury "the writer most responsible for bringing modern science fiction into the literary mainstream."

        Out of My Later Years.

      Philosophical Library, New York 1950 - First edition of Einstein's collection of social science-related articles, addresses and speeches. Octavo, original cloth, frontispiece of Einstein. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper, "A. Einstein 52." With the ownership signature of Dr. Milnor Alexander, Los Angeles, California, 1952 on front pastedown. Alexander taught political science at Penn State University and was active in the women's movement and supporter of many societies promoting social welfare, the environment and the Labor movement. She has also inscribed below, "Autographed by Einstein for our fund-raiser for the Federation for Repeal of the Levering Act." The inscription on the pastedown is significant. Einstein is known to have endorsed the [successful] fight against having every California citizen/employee of the government pledge complete loyalty to the government no matter one's political affiliations. This was called the Levering Act. These strictures--to be imposed on California government employees--- took place during the McCarthy era of seeking out Communist sympathizers, including the banning of alleged Communist-leaning Hollywood actors and directors. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Out of My Later Years is Einstein&#146;s collection of essays considering everything that interests him as a scientist, philosopher and humanitarian. Einstein&#146;s essays share how one of the greatest minds of all time interprets the changing world of his time. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Tel Aviv, 1950. One page, in blue ink. 1 vols. 8vo. Fine, with original envelope, addressed in Bernstein's hand. One page, in blue ink. 1 vols. 8vo. To His Solfège Teacher, Madame Longy. Fine letter from Israel to Bernstein's old teacher at the Curtis Institute,. where Longy taught ear training from 1926 to 1941. Longy, known as "Madame Longy", subsequently taught at Peabody and at Juilliard ("She taught in a rigid French manner that included humiliation; both men and women ran from her classroom in tears" - Olmstead, Juilliard, A History, p. 147). Her father had founded the Longy School of Music. Bernstein writes: "I think of you often: How you would sweat in this climate! But how you would love it! Perhaps this is your solution - we need fine teachers here. How about it? "Things go well, if exhausting to the nth degree - In Holland from July 1st for two weeks - then Tanglewood then back to Paris & Edinburgh. It's a horror of a schedule. Where will you be?"

        Reproduction photograph of the young maestro, signed in full white ink and inscribed "To Miss Alice E.L. Wolff Easter Sunday 1915."

      A highly distinguished conductor, "[Toscanini's] taste, which was largely formed in the 19th century, was in fact unusually wide. He was a notable interpreter of composers as various as Puccini, Berlioz, Brahms, Debussy, Tchaikovsky and Richard Strauss. But he was at his greatest in the music of his three favourites, Beethoven, Wagner and Verdi; his recording of Falstaff (made in 1950) will remain a classic of re-creation and a monument to his vitality and interpretative insight." David Cairns in Grove Music Online. Toscanini conducted at the Metropolitan Opera from 1908-1915. He was scheduled to return to Europe aboard the doomed Lusitania at the end of his season with New York's Metropolitan Opera in May of that year but left a week early, apparently aboard the Italian liner Duca degli Abruzzi. Easter Sunday fell on April 4th in 1915; the present image was thus signed just short of the end of the great conductor's last season with the Met.. 202 x 142 mm. A Mishkin image, with studio attribution in white at lower right corner. Minor short (ca. 50 mm.) crack to right margin and lower right corner very slightly cracked, not affecting image; laid down to mounting sheet at corners of verso.
