1951. Size: B1 (cca. 70 x 100 cm). The poster advertised the International Sample Fair held in Prague in 1951 The piece was printed in Czechoslovakia but it targeted Hungarian audience The poster employs the typical motives of the communist aesthetics a strong worker dominates the composition in front of a red background He is captured in the compulsory realist manner but this painting style can also remind us of the popular poster style of the 1940s in Hungary It is also really interesting that we can see a stylised figure of a quite modernist building in the background Due to the use of strong colors and monumental forms the poster appears to be a decorative piece Very good.

STEVENS, Wallace
25 June 1951, Hartford, CT. On letterhead of the Hartford Accident and Indemnity Company, of which he was vice-president, to Henry Leffert of the City College of New York's English department. In the middle decades of the twentieth century, Leffert organized lectures at the college by numerous important authors, including Stevens' 26 November 1951 lecture mentioned here. In full: "Thanks for your note of June 18th. Let's put it down for Monday, November 26, 1951. Thanksgiving seems to be somewhere in that neighborhood but the day will be all right for me if it is all right for you. Later, and as the time approaches, please send me word as to where you expect me to turn up. I have not yet written the Chicago paper, so that if you are printing anything about this I am not able to give you a title and probably shall not be until quite near the time." SIGNED "Wallace Stevens." The Chicago paper" refers to "A Collect of Philosophy," which Stevens presented at the University of Chicago in November 1951. Stevens wrote another letter to Leffert [not present here] in that month giving the title of the lecture. With the original envelope. "A Collect of Philosophy" was published in OPUS POSTHUMOUS, edited by Samuel French (1957), and in the Library of America edition of COLLECTED POETRY AND PROSE (1997). It has become something of a locus classicus for students of Stevens' work, and opens: "It is often the case that the concepts of philosophy are poetic. I thought, therefore, that you might like to consider the poetic nature of at least a few philosophic ideas. I have in mind ideas th … [Click Below for Full Description]

As the authority of Nestorian studies, Saeki painstakingly compiled, edited, and translated such immensely important Nestorian documents in Chinese and Syriac. I have great respect and deep admiration for Dr. Saeki. I had the privilege to meet Dr. Saeki in Tokyo shortly before his death - a fine gentleman, scholar and most of all, a true samurai.

Martyn Lloyd Jones Hardback in Dust Jacket - 1951 118 pages Very Good Condition A Stunning Study What is man? What is wrong with the human race? Unless we answer these questions correctly, we cannot hope to solve the problems in our world--problems such as crime, exploitation, greed, poverty, pollution, and war. Obviously those who shape social policy today are offering the wrong answers. In this masterful apologetic for the gospel, Dr. Lloyd-Jones exposes these flaws in modern thinking, especially in the "scientific approach." "It is a poor physician who treats the symptoms and complications only and ignores the disease" says the author. In this volume we see a doctor, as skillful spiritually as he was medically, make a penetrating diagnosis of the human condition and show decisively that the true remedy for our ills is in Jesus Christ--and Him alone. 5 Chapters Type: Hardback Pages: 118 Publisher: Clarke We ship within 24 hours from sunny South Carolina.

DiMaggio, Joe and Mickey Mantle
1951. Original black and white photograph of American baseball legends Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle taken in 1951, DiMaggio's final season with the New York Yankees and Mickey Mantle's first. Boldly signed by both DiMaggio and Mantle. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 23 inches by 19 inches. Rare and desirable. American baseball legend Joe DiMaggio is widely considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time, and is best known for his 56-game hitting streak (May 15 - July 16, 1941), a record that still stands. During his tenure with the Yankees, the club won ten American League pennants and nine World Series championships including the 1951 World Series Championship in which the Yanks defeated the New York Giants in the 1951 World Series Championship in six games; finishing the season with a record of 98 games won to 56 lost and winning their 18th pennant. The year was noted for an unprecedented 'changing of the guard', as it was Joe DiMaggio's final season and Mickey Mantle's first. Mantle would go on to play his entire Major League Baseball career (1951-1968) with the New York Yankees as a center fielder and first baseman. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Wilkes Director of the Mathematical Laboratory of the University of Cambridge David J. Wheeler and Stanley Gill First Edition 1951 Published by the Addison Wesley Press in Cambridge Massachusetts in 1951 this is the First Edition the first text book written on the subject of Computers and Computer Programming by Maurice Wilkes along with Wheeler & Gill Sir Maurice Vincent Wilkes FRS FREng (26 June 1913 - 29 November 2010) was a British computer scientist who designed and helped build the Electronic delay storage automatic calculator (EDSAC), one of the earliest stored program computers and invented microprogramming, a method for using stored-program logic to operate the control unit of a central processing unit's circuits. At the time of his death, Wilkes was an Emeritus Professor of the University of Cambridge In 1951, he developed the concept of microprogramming[4] from the realisation that the central processing unit of a computer could be controlled by a miniature, highly specialised computer program in high-speed ROM. This concept greatly simplified CPU development. Microprogramming was first described at the University of Manchester Computer Inaugural Conference in 1951 THE BOOK The book is bound in the original brown cloth titled in gilt to the spine, internally illustrated with two photographs, old label fixed to the base of the title page for "Science Computing Service Limited … [Click Below for Full Description]
