        Jerusalem. The Emanation of the Giant Albion.

      4to. London: Trianon Press for the William Blake Trust, [1951]. 4to, (6), ix text, and 100 pochoir colorplates. Full red morocco extra by Bayntun, a gorgeous copy sumptuously bound (as the book deserves). Limited to 516 copies, this copy no. 176. The definitive facsimile of one of Blake’s greatest works and the first of the magnificent series of facsimiles created by the Trianon Press of Blake’s illuminated books. The Preludium is by Joseph Wicksteed and the Bibliographical Statement by Geoffrey Keynes. Bentley 78. "Blake's etched copperplates, giving the text of his poem and the basis of the designs, were printed by him in a rich orange ink and were then illuminated by hand in water colours and gold. The etched base has now been reproduced by collotype in orange and the prints have then been coloured by hand by a stencilling process, so that the final result bears the closest possible resemblance to Blake's original plates. An average of forty-four applications of water colours was required for each full page illustration, of which there are four. Of the remainder, fifty-one have some text with designs filling half the page or more, and thirty-five have text with small marginal decorations.". (Introduction) Copies were issued in fascicles, or a dull blue buckram binding: This copy was bound for presentation and is magnificent.

        Dianetics: The Original Thesis.

      Wichita, Kansas: The Wichita Publishing Co., distributed by The Hubbard Dianetic Foundation. Inc., [1951] - Octavo. Original plain green cloth. With the dust jacket. Ends and corners very slightly rubbed, an excellent copy with the jacket bearing only a few small nicks, tears and marks. First edition, first impression. The Original Thesis was originally written in 1948 and distributed among close friends - it quickly gained attention and in 1951 received its first official publication in this scarce hardcover edition. This copy bears the corrective ink stamp to the jacket front panel and the title page, changing the address from The Hubbard Dianetic Foundation, Wichita, to a new personal address, "L. Ron Hubbard, 1405 north central, phoenix, arizona" - an evocative indicator of the now-international Scientology movement being run out of town in its nascent stages. [Attributes: First Edition]

Soltanto nel colophon del terzo volume l'editore si presenta come segue: " Finito di stampare il XX novembre MCMLI nella TIPOGRAFIA DI TALLONE, Parigi". L'inferno porta i numeri romani sulla copertina e sul frontespizio la data 1950 mentre il purgatorio ed il paradiso 1951. Nel volume del paradiso sul verso del colophon c'è la dedica di A. Tallone alla moglie : .  Tre volumi in-24° di mm. 133x77 in carattere Garamond corpo 9 tondo; di 224 pagine numerate più 7 non numerate comprendenti 2 carte bianche per l'inferno; 228 pagine numerate più 10 non numerate di cui 9 bianche per il purgatorio; 225 pagine numerate più 9 non numerate; comprendenti il colophon e la dedica, per il paradiso. Tiratura di 350 esemplari su carta lana >(ns. esemplare è in 350 su carta Montval, non numerati.) Copertina di cartoncino leggero velinato con titoli sul piatto e sul dorso in inchiostro azzurro; sovraccoperta comune per i 3 volumi in cartone uso tela e astuccio dello stesso tipo. Tallone s'ispirò per il formato alle ediz. Aldine del 1502 e il 1515, sostituendo con il carattere tondo corpo 9 ed eliminando il sunto della terza rima attribuito al Boccaccio. Ogni pag. comprende 8 terzine con l'inizio delle terzine spostato in fuori a sinistra in confronto ai 2 versi successivi.   Tallone fece rilegare da De Filippi di Torino alcuni esemplari su carta Montval in pieno marocchino e in astuccio unito distribuendo un esemplare ad ognuna delle maggiori città d'Italia attraverso librerie o antiquari. Qualche esemplare fu rilegato da Gianni di Firenze in pieno cuoio con fregi a caldo e in oro, secondo i modelli pre-rinascimentali, taglio superiore dorato tit. in oro sul dorso, con i 3 volumi unificati. Uno dei pochi esemplari fu donato alla rivista " Gioa" alla regina di Thailandia Sirikat. Defilippi di Torino ha inoltre rilegato alcune esemplari su carta monval in pieno marocchino e fregi oro e bordure.in oro massiccio; un volume oltre che con le bordure fu completato con un fermaglio in oro, e la rilegatura fu dichiarata   da un autografo di Tallone che la correda. Tutti questi modelli sono contenuti in astucci internamente felpati. Tallone inoltre volle far rilegare una copia in volume unico da Gruel; lo stampatore non aveva intenzione di privarsene e lo fece soltanto pochi mesi prima della sua scomparsa a beneficio di un amico. Era il volume prediletto di Tallone che lo chiamava il > e lo aveva esposto a Parigi,Londra etc.  Successivamente Tallone rimastone privo ne fece rilegare un altro su identico modello dal Devanchelle; Questo duplicato è conservato nella biblioteca di famiglia. LA LEGATURA DEL NOSTRO ESEMPLARE E' STATA ESEGUITA DA GIANNINI DI FIRENZE IN PIENO CUOIO con fregi a caldo e in oro, secondo i modelli pre-rinascimentali, taglio superiore dorato tit. in oro sul dorso, con i 3 volumi unificati. E' una deliziosa edizione dantesca di purezza e semplicità squisitamente talloniane ( Piero Pelizzari LVI, l'opera tipografica di Alberto Tallone) Mezza pelle

Photographed during the same shoot as one of the most iconic Welles portraits of all time, the renowned director is seen here in a simple suit and tie. The photo was taken during his period of self-imposed European exile, after both his 1947 divorce from actress Rita Hayworth and his negatively reviewed 1948 rendition of "Macbeth." Bown is known for her stark high-contrast black-and-white photographs, shot utilizing only natural light and frequently depicting celebrities. She received widespread critical acclaim for her work until her death in 2014. Photograph 10 x 13.5 inches (25.5 x 34 cm) on 12 x 16 inch paper. Housed in an archival mat measuring 16 x 20 inches. Near Fine.

        Alpha Iota Chapter of Theta Sigma Phi. Yearbook 1950-1951. [Cover title]: AI: Nineteen Fifty - Nineteen Fifty-one

      (Long Beach, California): Alpha Iota Chapter of Theta Sigma Phi. 1951. Oblong folio. Measuring 19.5" x 8.25". Plastic spiral bound handpainted and hand-lettered card covers with plastic overlay. Light edgewear, a few of the affixed elements (probably photographs) are lacking, a couple of others have become loose or detached, but otherwise nice and near fine. A completely handmade, well-designed, and very attractive yearbook made for a sorority chapter, in Long Beach, California, probably at Los Angeles-Orange County State College (now California State University, Long Beach). A long introductory poem about the Chapter's activities is signed "R.P.L." which seems to indicate the member Rosemary Leal who is listed elsewhere in the book. Each page has been carefully and artfully handlettered, usually with affixed photographs, invitations to events, clippings, or letters indicating the various activities of the sorority. The yearbook highlights chapter events, both locally and nationally, service activities that the sorority participated in: Red Cross, March of Dimes, Christmas Seals, etc., and many others: bridal showers and engagement parties, dances, fashion shows, excursions, Mother's Day events, a Gold Rush 49ers-theme pledge party, a Lone Ranger and Tonto "mock initiation," Halloween Party, etc.Los Angeles-Orange County State College was founded in 1949, so presumably this would shed some light on the very early days of the institution. Considering the amount of labor that went into the yearbook, it seems likely that this appealing artifact is unique . .

        Autograph letter signed ("Jean"). Santo Sospir (Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat), 12. IV. 1951.

      1951. Small 4to. 1 p. To his translator into English, Mary Hoeck: "Je ne vous ai pas envoyé de lettre parce qu'il fallait que j'achève le portrait de Cégeste. Je crois que ce portrait peut vous plaire. J'avais, en outre l'obligation de répondre à und masse de correspondance qui s'empilait sur une table. J'ai vu, hier soir, le film de Sica (Miracle à Milan) - c'est une merveille et j'avais bien raison de dire que le fameux néoréalisme italien était le style même du conte oriental. Le film de Sica en est le triomphe. (Il du reste remporté un triomphe). De Sica a eu la gentillesse de déclarer au public qui n'aurait jamais osé faire ce film sans les miens - et il m'a embrasse sous la mitraille des photographes. Lorsqu'un homme triomphe, cette attitude est assez rare. Asquith aussi a été très élégant. Comme les journalistes lui disaient 'Vous êtes le Cocteau d'Agleterre' (sic) il a répondu: [']Hélas - je voudrais bien avoir ses dons'. Voilà la chronique de Cannes. Francine a acheté un bateau de 18 mètres sur lequel nous avons bravé le Mistral [...]".

Green cloth with blue decoration on both covers featuring a mountain and dragon design. Bright dust jacket with chipping to edges. Small previous owner's ink names with '52 date on front fly leaf, otherwise clean. No colophon or date but this is the 5th printing.
