Printing]: [Photography]
[New York]. Very good. 138 black and white photographs. 64 are approx. 8'' by 10'' or 7'' by 9,'' the remainder of the collection in assorted smaller sizes. Many photos curled, a few creased and a very few with small tears to edges. Majority very good or better.

Of the remainder, many have a photographer's stamp on the back but are otherwise unlabelled. Photographs of student printers and instructors, nearly all from the New York School of Printing, most dated from the mid-1950s through the late 1960s. Many photographs have a detailed description attached (e.g. "NYSP students in basement with shipping crates"), with one accompanied by a press release from the Printing Education Week Committee. Several images of work in progress have an attached technical description on the reverse explaining the process shown in the photo: e.g. "Registering and Assembling Negatives and Transparencies," "Checking Negative Register," "Burning an Offset Plate," "Preparing 'flats' for contact to blueprint prior to plating," "Hand Composition," "Color Mixing," "Journeymen Instruction in Teletypesetter Operation at the School for Printers Apprentices of The New York School of Printing."

Eliot, T.S
Faber & Faber, London. First edition of Eliot's most popular play published in his lifetime. Octavo, original cloth. Association copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to his sister, "Marian Eliot from Tom." The recipient Marian Cushing Eliot was the sister of T.S. Eliot and his favorite. Light rubbing, near fine in near fine dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional association. The Cocktail Party was written while Eliot was a visiting scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study in 1948. It was first performed at the Edinburgh Festival in 1949. In 1950 the play had successful runs in London and New York theaters (the Broadway production received the 1950 Tony Award for Best Play.) It focuses on a troubled married couple who, through the intervention of a mysterious stranger, settle their problems and move on with their lives. The play starts out seeming to be a light satire of the traditional British drawing room comedy. As it progresses, however, the work becomes a darker philosophical treatment of human relations. As in many of Eliot's works, the play uses absurdist elements to expose the isolation of the human condition. In another recurring theme of Eliot's plays, the Christian martyrdom of the mistress character is seen as a sacrifice that permits the predominantly secular life of the community to continue."An authentic modern masterpiece" (New York Post). "Eliot really does portray real-seeming characters. He cuts down his poetic effects to the minimum, and then finally rewards us with most beautiful poetry" (Stephen … [Click Below for Full Description]

CAMUS Albert
Gallimard, Paris 1950, 11,5x18cm, reliure de l'éditeur. Edition originale, un des 1050 exemplaires numérotés sur alfa mousse. Reliure de l'éditeur en plein cartonnage réalisée d'après la maquette originale de Mario Prassinos. Précieux et magnifique envoi autographe signé d'Albert Camus à René Char : " à René Char, frère de ceux-ci, dont il a fait toute la route avec l'admiration et l'affection de son ami. / Albert Camus". «Je tiens René Char pour notre plus grand poète vivant etFureur et mystèrepour ce que la poésie française nous a donné de plus surprenant depuis lesIlluminationsetAlcools» (Albert Camus, préface à l'édition allemande desPoésiesde René Char, 1959). L'amitié entre Albert Camus et René Char figure parmi les plus belles et fructueuses de la littérature française. Rien ne semblait destiner l'écrivain journaliste algérois et le poète provençal à se rencontrer et encore moins à s'apprécier. Camus n'entendait rien à la poésie et Char n'avait aucun goût pour le roman, ceux de Maurice Blanchot mis à part. Pourtant, c'est par leurs uvres respectives que les deux artistes se découvrent et s'apprécient. Ainsi avant Camus et Char se rencontrent Caligula et Hypnos, illustrant tous deux la responsabilité du poète face à la violence du monde. «Dans nos ténèbres, il n'y a pas une place pour la Beauté. Toute la place est pour la Beauté.» (Char,Feuillets d'Hypnos). C'est cette exigence commune de la Beauté comme réponse politique à la démesure des idéologies qui unit les deux artistes au sortir de la guerre. Ferment de leur amitié, cette première «reconnaissance» inaugure u … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tel un ethnographe, il rapporta de ses nombreux voyages des vues de paysages méditérranéens, d'Espagne, du Maroc, de Tunisie, de France et des Antilles Françaises, de Turquie, d'Iran, d'Autriche, du Japon, des Etats-Unis...

WILKINS, Maurice (1916-2004) - Erwin CHARGAFF (1905-2002); Stephen ZAMENHOF (1911-1998); and Charlotte GREEN
London: Nature, 1950. 8vo. 5pp. Lightly age-darkened. FIRST EDITION, OFFPRINT ISSUE, SIGNED by Maurice Wilkins at the head of the first page. Chargaff became interested in DNA in 1944 after Oswald Avery identified the molecule as the basis of heredity. This paper shows that amounts of adenine and thymine in DNA were roughly the same, as were the amounts of cytosine and guanine. The paper that explained what would later be known as the first of Chargaff's rules: "that a double-stranded DNA molecule globally has percentage base pair equality: %A = %T and %G = %C. The rigorous validation of the rule constitutes the basis of Watson-Crick pairs in the DNA double helix model" (Wikipedia). Maurice Wilkins cited this paper in his own work, finding very useful the description of the process by which various proteins were isolated for study.

Nabokov, Vladimir
New York: Signet Books, 1950. First edition thus. Near Fine. First paperback edition of Kamera Obskura. Signed on the title page by Nabokov for the Signet publisher Kurt Enoch and dated the month after publication (five years before Nabokov acheived major literary success with Lolita). Nabokov famously would not autograph books unless he knew the recipient, making signed first editions of his work scarce. Near Fine with only slight wear at the spine. Nabokov's novel about passion, betrayal, and ambition predated his infamous Lolita by 23 years. Laughter in the Dark allowed the author to develop themes connected to a middle-aged man's passion for a younger woman, and to explore how a parasitic relationship based on lust could lead to mutual downfall. Provenance: From the library of Kurt Enoch, who founded the New American Library and subsequently its Signet and Penguin imprints, and who in the late 1940s invented the mass market paperback, bringing the work of many great authors to a vast and entirely new readership. Near Fine.

Ritter, Chris
[ New York] 1950 - Folio. Plate size 45 x 37.5 cm, plus full margins. Series of six original etchings, with aquatint. Some faint smudges to a few margins, otherwise fine. A striking, atmospheric series of etchings depicting six Roman emperors, each being example #4 from an edition of fifty numbered impressions, each captioned, numbered and signed by the artist in the margin. The etchings are also titled in the plate: "Nero The Profligate," "Marcus Aurelius the Philosopher," "Constantine the Christian," "Great Caesar the Conqueror," "Augustus Father of Rome," and "Tiberius render Unto Caesar." Ritter (1906 - 1976) ran the Laurel Gallery in New York from 1947 - 1950, and published the work of a number of artists, including Milton Avery. It is possible that this series appeared at that time.

Kohlhoff war über 20 Jahre lang Vorstandsmitglied des Vereins Berliner Künstler. Maler urbaner Landschaften Berlins und seiner Umgebung. Kohlhoff zeigt seine Stadtbilder menschenleer und verleiht ihnen somit teils einen denkmalhaften Charakter. In seinen Arbeiten wendet er sich vor allem den ruhigen Orten der Großstadt wie auch Hinterhöfen, Großstadtdächern und abgelegenen Arealen wie Seitenstrassen, Kleingärten, Bahngleisen, Fabrikanlagen etc. Er malte im Rahmen einer späten Neusachlichkeit. Dies gilt auch für seine anderen Motive wie Bilder aus den Alpen, Landschaftsstudien, Stilleben. Ferner malte er Porträts, Selbstporträts und Aktzeichnungen.<<< ( Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage – further pics at request ) ( Artikelnumer 15754 ) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
