      -,, Paris, 1951 - Collage. Paris, -, 1951. ca. 41 x 48,5 cm. Gerahmt. Mit eighd. datierter Signatur. - Trägerpapier etw. wellig. - Adrian, (1930 - 2008), wurde in Wien geboren. Nach der Matura studierte er ab 1950 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien bei Fritz Wotruba sowie in Paris und Mailand. In den 50er und 60er Jahren stand der Künstler in einem Naheverhältnis zur Wiener Gruppe, er weitete das Feld der Bildhauerei und Malerei auf das Medium Film aus. Ausgangspunkte von Adrians Schaffen waren Plastik, Malerei, Op-Art, Computerkunst und konkrete Poesie. Parallel zu seinen literarischen, plastischen und bildenden Arbeiten schuf Adrian eine Reihe von avantgardistischen Filmen. Von Anfang an waren seine Streifen dabei eine Auseinandersetzung mit herrschenden Ideologien und behandelten Themen wie Gewalt, Sexualität, Macht und Staat, Wahrnehmung und Täuschung. Zunehmend begann er sich jedoch psychologisch-narrativen Themen zu widmen. Adrian gehörte in den 50er Jahren zusammen mit Peter Kubelka und Ferry Radax zur ersten Generation des österreichischen Avantgardefilms. Neben seiner künstlerischen Arbeit begann Adrian ab 1970, an künstlerischen Hochschulen u.a. in Hamburg, Cambridge und Wien zu unterrichten. 1988 war er österreichischer Vertreter bei der "Olympiade des artistes" in Seoul, Einzelausstellungen fanden zudem in Europa, den USA und Indien statt. Erste Auszeichnungen erhielt der Künstler bereits in den 60er Jahren: so wurde er u.a. 1992 mit dem Österreichischen Würdigungspreis für Filmkunst und dem ersten Preis der Kurzfilmfestivals "Filmzwerge" in Münster ausgezeichnet.

        Five Autograph Letters and one Postcard, signed, to Evelyn Moore Moise of New York City, regarding the apartment Wilson was subletting from her; with 2 Typed letters from Moise to Wilson

      New York, 1951. Four of the letters on New Yorker stationery, the last on letterhead of "Mrs. Edmund Wilson" of Red Bank, New Jersey; each of the 5 letters is one page. 1 vols. 8vo & 12mo. Very good, in a custom blue cloth folder with leather label. Four of the letters on New Yorker stationery, the last on letterhead of "Mrs. Edmund Wilson" of Red Bank, New Jersey; each of the 5 letters is one page. 1 vols. 8vo & 12mo. Wilson's Sublet. Interesting group of letters written to Wilson's landlady, from whom he was subletting an apartment at 11 East 87th, during a period when his play A LITTLE BLUE LIGHT was in rehearsal, and shortly before the death of his mother later that year. Discussions of the mundane issues (rent, gas, electricity and telephone bills) predominate, along with the usual NYC complaint: "the heating and hot water are not as strong as they ought to be ... we have only short spurts of heat and I don't find it helps much to speak to the janitor"). In his letter of April 17, Wilson requests a brief extension of his star in order to attend the opening of his play.

        The Albert Schweitzer Jubilee Book - "Royal Deluxe" edition

      Cambridge, Mass: Sci-Art Publishers, 1951. Royal Deluxe Edition. Full Gilded Leather. Near Fine/No Jacket as Issued. Every once in a while, a bookseller comes across a book that is not only beautiful because of its binding and signatures, but one that is a true historical document. This is the Royal Deluxe edition of Albert Schweitzer's Jubilee Book, published to raise money for his hospital with a book of twenty-six chapters and 508 pages (including an extensive index) covering topics about medicine, philosophy, music and others written by his colleagues, experts in their fields. It is numbered "Copy No. 23" of an unknown amount of Royal Deluxe editions and is signed by Schweitzer (winner of the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize) and 13 other medical, philosophical and social experts of the time, including the publisher A.A. Roback. (more about the signatures later in this description). This book is finely bound in dark red leather with bright gold accents, with a grey silk bookmark. It is in near fine condition, with a slight dryness to the beautiful leather (easily fixed with the proper dressing) but the covers are solid and beautiful with only minor rubbing on the corners. There is gold gilt on the top edge with minor touches of wear, marbled endpapers, and natural toning from age has darkened the pages but quite evenly. It is uncertain whether the book was privately bound or was published in this fine binding. There is a signed letter from the publisher, A.A. Roback, attached to a front page in which the publisher states the book was shipped directly from the publisher with the autograph sheets. These signature pages have been tipped in to the front of the book. Now the good part: Albert Schweitzer has signed the top of one of these early pages with a message in french: "avec mes bonnes pensees" (with my good thoughts). On the letter in the front, as mentioned, is the signature of A.A. Roback and on another page are 13 signatures by A.A. Roback (again) and 12 authors of many of the chapters in the book: (1) A.A. Roback (1890-1965), Ph.D. Polish-born psychologist, philologist, folklorist, and educator and publisher, edited the book and wrote Chap. I "Albert Schweitzer The Man" (2) Werner Jaeger (1888-1961), a 20th Century classicist, Professor of Classical Philology at Harvard University, wrote Chap. XX "Xenophanes And The Beginnings of Natural Theology (3) George Sarton (1884-1956), Belgian chemist and historian, Professor of the History of Science at Harvard University, considered the founder of the History of Science Discipline, listed on the title page and writer of the Epilogue, Chap. XXIII, "The Scholar's Dilemma;" (4) Sir Phillip Manson-Bahr (1881-1966), Director, Clinical Division, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, married the daughter of Sir Patrick Manson, founder of the tropical medicine field. An expert in his own right, he wrote Chap. XVII, "The Post-Graduate Teaching of Clinical Tropical Medicine;" (5) J.S. Bixler (1894-1985), Ph.D., President of Colby College, writer of Chap. II, "Productive Tensions in the Work of Albert Schweitzer;" (6) Clement C. Chesterman, M.D., O.B.E., Hon. Sec. British Advisory Bd. on Medical Missions, author on many books on tropical medicine, wrote Chap. XVIII, "The Strange Case of Dives and Lazarus;" (7) William Ernest Cooke (1879-1967), F.R.C.S.I., L.R.C.P.I., D.P.H, Superintendent of the School for Tropical Diseases in London, wrote Chap. XIX, "Medical Missions and the Future;" (8) Olof Linton, Theol. D., Professor of Exegetics, University of Uppsala, wrote Chap. XXII, "Albert Schweitxzer's Interpretation of St. Paul's Theology;" (9) Karl Vietor (1892-1951), Ph.D., Professor of German Art & Culture, Harvard University wrote Chap. XIV, "Lutheranism, Catholicism, and German Literature;" (10) Roland H. Bainton (1894-1984), B.D., Ph.D., was the Titus Street Professor of Ecclesiastical History at Yale University for 42 years, wrote Chap. XIII, "The Unity of Mankiind in the Classical Christian Tradition;" (11) Edward L. Thorndike (1874-1949), Ph.D., LL.D., Sc.D., Professor, Teachers College, Columbia University, His work on animal behavior and the learning process led to the theory of connectionism and helped lay the scientific foundation for modern educational psychology. He wrote Chap. VI, "Valuations of Achievements, Acts, Laws and Persons;" (12) A.T. Davison (1883-1961), Ph.D., Mus. D. (Hon.), F.R.C.M., Professor of Music, Harvard University, wrote Chap. VIII, "The Transcendentalism of Albert Schweitzer;" (13) Leo Schrade (1903-1964), Professor of Music History at Yale University; Professor and Director, Musicology Institute, University of Basel; wrote Chap. VII, "Schweitzer's Aesthetics: An Interpretation of Bach." A gloriously-bound work of history signed by men well established in their respective fields in the world of Albert Schweitzer, all of whom are no longer with us.

        Archive]: Books from the Library of Dinah Shore

      - An archive of 37 books owned by actress, singer, and television host, Dinah Shore, 29 of which are Inscribed to her. Many of the books were given as gifts to Shore from guests of her Emmy award-winning talk shows: *The Dinah Shore Show* (1951-1963) *Dinah's Place* (1970--1974), *Dinah!* (1974-1980), and *A Conversation with Dinah* (1989-1992). Some Inscriptions included by Barry Goldwater, Margaret Truman, Art Buchwald, Roddy McDowell, and an original poem from Burt Reynolds. Shore (1917-1994), who began her career in the late 1930s, joined Eddie Cantor's radio show recording one of her earliest hits, "Yes, My Darling Daughter," which sold 500,000 copies in 1941. With her star ascending she was cast in a number of films including her debut *Thank Your Lucky Stars* (1943) with Cantor; the ensemble films, *Follow the Boys* (1944) and *Till the Clouds Roll By* (1946); and starring roles in Danny Kaye's debut *Up in Arms* (1944), as well as *Belle of the Yukon* (1945) with Randolph Scott and Gypsy Rose Lee. She also lent her musical voice to two Disney films *Make Mine Music* (1946) and *Fun and Fancy Free* (1947). Throughout her career Shore had a long standing relationship with television through her numerous talk shows and specials, earning nine Emmys and ranking #16 on *TV Guide*'s list of the top television stars of all time.The books, which date from 1939-1990, include a variety of authors and subjects including literature, art, humor, history, politics, child rearing, photography, and music but most notable among them is a small handwritten volume from Burt Reynolds with whom she was involved romantically in the 1970s. The then emerging man's man actor was 38 when they started dating with Shore 20 years his senior. The relationship was a happy one and lasted four years with Reynolds later remarking that she was the love of his life. The charming book consists of a long handwritten poem by Reynolds, entitled "If You Were," composed of a series of verses stating all the things he felt Shore would be, such as: "If you were a City . you would be Paris" and "If you were a Time of Day . you would be a Sunset." An interesting personal collection of books from the library of a groundbreaking female singer, actress, and television pioneer. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph Signature, Photograph, Sheet Music and Ephemera

      Exceedingly rare group of items from the French jazz guitarist and composer who was one of the most influential guitarists of his time. He was the creator of the "hot" jazz style of guitar playing, created after two of his fingers on his playing hand were paralyzed from a fire. He died in 1951 at the age of 43 from a brain hemorrhage. Obtained at a Basel performance during Reinhart's 1946 European Tour by Ellis Gruber, an amateur jazz pianist who while in Europe for medical school was commissioned by the Melody Maker paper (London) to attend and write a review of the Django show. The small collection includes a 1 ¼" x 5 ¾" cut signature signed in black fountain pen, together with a few pages from a scrapbook that were assembled from that concert including the previously mentioned newspaper article, an original and unique snapshot photograph from the concert, the pay stub for the review, and a program insert noting the substitution of drummer Bob Bouraz and giving the guitar brand "MAJOR" used by Django. Also included is a scarce sheet music edition, the "2éme ALBUM DE DJANGO REINHARDT" (Paris: Publications Francis Day, 1945), Folio, 20 pp, including eight compositions dated 1941 - 1945. Reinhardt remains one of the most renowned jazz guitarists and with violinist Stéphane Grappelli, he cofounded the Quintette du Hot Club de France, described by critic Thom Jurek as "one of the most original bands in the history of recorded jazz."

        Eigenh. Brief m. U. „Felix".

      o. O., 17. II. 1951. - 8vo. 1 p. An eine „Liebe Stella": „Leider geht es an dem von Dir vorgeschlagenen Tag nicht, es wird sich vor dem Wiener Musikfest überhaupt kaum mehr einrichten lassen, da mein eigentliches Leben auf den Sonntag zusammengeschrumpft ist, meine Proben daher die Sonntage ausfüllen werden, da in der Woche nicht das kleinste ,Fensterl’ ist [ ]" - Felix Petyrek war Sohn des Organisten und Chordirigenten August Petyrek, der erzbischöflicher Organist in Olmütz war. Ab 1894 erhielt dieser eine Professur in Brünn und gab auch erste musikalische Unterweisungen an seinen Sohn. Felix Petyrek studierte Musikwissenschaft bei Guido Adler und Komposition an der Musikakademie bei Franz Schreker. Im Ersten Weltkrieg wurde Petyrek aus gesundheitlichen Gründen nicht an die Front eingezogen, sondern musste im Lager bei St. Andrä Kriegsgefangene betreuen. Er sammelte dort Lieder und Gesänge der aus vielen Nationen stammenden Gefangenen. Zusammen mit Bernhard Paumgartner und Alois Hába arbeitete er an der Musikhistorischen Zentrale beim k. u. k. Kriegsministerium. Ab 1919 lehrte Petyrek am Mozarteum. In Salzburg lernte er das "Wunderkind" Loris Margaritis kennen, mit dem ihm fortan eine Freundschaft verband.Nachdem Petyrek aus gesundheitlichen Gründen drei Jahre in Abbazia gelebt hatte, ging er 1926 nach Athen, wo er die Meisterklasse für Klavier leitete und auch als Lektor für Musikwissenschaft tätig war. Bereits nach einem Jahr hatte seine Klavierklasse ein hohes künstlerisches Niveau erreicht. Gleichzeitig gab er Vorträge und publizierte in Fachzeitschriften, vieles davon auf griechisch.Später lehrte er noch an den Musikhochschulen in Stuttgart und Leipzig, wo er sich der Bedeutung pädagogisch orientierter Stücke (die sich gleichermaßen zu Studienzwecken und zum Konzertvortrag eignen) widmete.Nachdem während der NS-Zeit seine Emigrationspläne die Schweiz wiederholt scheiterten und Scheidungskosten von seiner ersten Frau ihn immer mehr in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten brachten, trat er der NSDAP bei, um einem Amtsentzug zuvorzukommen. Von 1949 bis 1951 war er Professor an der Wiener Musik-Akademie. Im Dezember 1951 verstarb Felix Petyrek an Bluthochdruck, Herzerweiterung und frischem Schlaganfall mit Halbseiten-Lähmung rechts.Ein Archiv der europäischen Volksmusik konnte er nicht mehr vollenden. Sein Nachlass befindet sich im Archiv der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Wien.

        Typed Letter Signed ("C.G. Jung").

      Zurich, January 30, 1951 - 4to. 1 page. With typed transmittal envelope and the carbon copy of the 4-page typed letter by Code to which this is the reply, modest overall toning and edge-wear. „As far as I can judge from the distance, the case of the child you describe is that of a hysterical dissociation. Jung writes to Grant Code in New York. Jung provides advice to the caregiver of a 13-year old girl, recommending drawing as a "helpful outlet for bottled up unconscious phantasies." However, he concludes, "This is a badly prejudiced case, I'm afraid, and the outlook into the future is not particularly bright. But in the right hands even such people can develop and become not exactly normal but at least possible." Code's description of the girl's symptoms and history are pitiable.
