        PORTFOLIO A MAGAZINE FOR THE GRAPHIC ARTS [with:] PORTFOLIO THE ANNUAL OF GRAPHIC ARTS [Whole numbers 1 & 3]

      Cincinnati & New York: Zebra Press & Duell, Sloane & Pearce, 1951. Two numbers (of three published). Small folio (33 x 25.5 cm). Typographically decorated wrappers. Heavily illustrated with photographs, tipped-in extras, drawings, etc. Light edgewear and a couple of nicks to wrappers of first issue, some tanning at edges and significant loss to the spine covering of the second number (as often), light dusting to endsheets, but a very good copy of the 1st number, and apart from the almost inevitable chipping to the spine, a very good copy of the third and last number. Edited by George S. Rosenthal and Frank Zachary, with Brodovitch in charge of art direction and design. PORTFOLIO represented a substantial achievement for its time, showcasing the graphic and fine arts, both historical and contemporary, with contributions by, or articles about, many of the current and past innovators (Rand, Shahn, Bodoni, Kauffer, Penn, Avedon, Steinberg, Calder, Cartier-Bresson, et al). Eschewing advertisements in favor of content, PORTFOLIO's high production costs, without the benefit of advertising income, resulted in its early demise. The 3d glasses that accompanied the article on stereoscopy in the 3rd number are still present. "Besides his achievements at [Harper's] Bazaar, Brodovitch's legacy as a publications designer includes the short-lived but influential magazine Portfolio, three issues of which were published in 1949 and 1950. A flashy, innovative quarterly aimed at the design profession, Portfolio contained profusely illustrated feature on Alexander Calder, Charles Eames, Paul Rand, Saul Steinberg and others, as well as articles surveying the graphic variations of cattle brands and shopping bags. As art editor, Brodovitch helped conceive the magazine's contents, as well as creating its distinct design with the help of die-cuts, transparent pages, multi-page fold outs and other elaborate (and expensive) graphic devices" -- A. Grundberg, AIGA web biography.

        Handwritten, Signed Letter from Audrey Hepburn to Felix Aylmer

      Very Good. Signed A handwritten letter from Audrey Hepburn to actor Sir Felix Aylmer who was her voice coach and close personal friend. Hepburn wrote a series of letters to Aylmer between 1951 and 1960, chronicling her rise to fame, and the highs and lows in her personal life. In this letter, Hepburn thanks Aylmer for a present and talks about when "Mel emerges from the studio". Hepburn had married Mel Ferrer in September 1954 having met him earlier that year so this letter is very much from their honeymoon period. She finishes the letter to Aylmer with "lots of love, Audrey". The letter is written on two sides of blue notepaper with a blue border. It is in the original envelope which is also handwritten and is postmarked London with what appears to be a date of 15 Feb 1955. The letter is dated 13 Feb. '54 so one must assume Hepburn had yet to get used to the new year. The letter came to us from the Aylmer family. This is a rare opportunity to acquire such a unique and personal item of Audrey Hepburn memorabilia. .

        Medicine Tomorrow: An Introduction to Cosmotherapy with a Guide to Treatment - Complete with all 15 charts in rear pocket

      C W Daniel , United Kingdom, 1951. Revised Edition. Hardcover. Good Condition/Fair. Professor Szekely's works, made known in England & America through Mr. Purcell Weaver's excellent translations, are gaining very much wider recognition than sceptiks ever thought possible.. His first book - Cosmos, Man and Society convinced very many people as to the worth of his claim to revolutionise medicine with a system of healing arising from an entirely new conception of medical treatment, that can be applied for the cure of any disease or ailment. This is a very large claim to make, but it is made seriously by people whose conviction rests on grounds of evidence & argument. Science now teaches that the universe is composed of movement in the form of radiations of different wave-lengths & intensities. Man being part of the Universe is also a complex of radiations, who influences and is in turn influenced by the external radiations of his cosmic, natural & human environment. With the cosmic solar, terrestrial & human radiations as the basis of a natural system of medicine & the philosophical method of dialectical correlativism, Professor Szekely has laid down what is believed to be the foundation of the natural preventive & curative medicine of the future..." Size: 180mm - 250mm. 400 pages. Dust Jacket has some shelf wear, rubbing and bumping to corners. It also has some tears, chips and bumps to extremities. . Quantity Available: 1.

        An operator calculus having application in quantum electrodynamics”.

      American Physical Society 1951 - FEYNMAN, R.P. “An operator calculus having application in quantum electrodynamics”. Physical Review 1951. vol 84: 108-128. Original wrappers. Very good copy.++This is Al Wattenburg's (Fermi Group, Chicago, nuclear pile). [NOTE: the faint white vertical lines in the photo are from the scan, NOT on the issue of PR.]From "The Selected Papers of Richard Feynman, with Commentary", edited by Laurie Brown (World Scientific): “In 1951, Feynman completed his work on quantum electrodynamics, describing and applying a new operator calculus for operators dependent on a continuous parameter (such as the time), which describes the ordering of application of the generally non-commuting operators. Using the ordering parameter, the ordinary methods of calculus (integration and power series expansions, for example) can be carried through without regard to the ordering until the final result, which is then appropriately reordered.Evidently Feynman hoped that his new method for dealing with operators would have a wider application, but that does not seem to be the cae (at least so far!)"

Precious autografo firmato da Albert Camus al suo caro amico Andre Belamich ... - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Dos gauchi et insolé, papier jauni, notre exemplaire est présenté sous chemise en demi chagrin gris et étui, l'ensemble signé de Devauchelle. Précieux envoi autographe signé d'Albert Camus : "A André Belamich, pour nos vingt ans d'amitié..." Belamich rencontre Camus en 1932 sur les bancs du cours de philosophie de Jean Grenier au lycée Bugeaud d'Alger, la fameuse « Khâgne africaine ». Après avoir participé ensemble à l'aventure du Parti Communiste Algérien, Camus et Belamich forment avec d'autres penseurs et artistes ce  que l'on nomme aujourd'hui "l'Ecole d'Alger" réunissant autour de l'éditeur et libraire Edmond Charlot une génération d'esprits progressistes dont Claude de Fréminville, Max-Pol Fouchet, René-Jean Clot, emmanuel Roblès et Gabriel Audisio. Après plusieurs traductions pour Charlot de Jane Austin et David Lawrence, Belamich devient surtout, à l'initiative et avec le soutien de Camus, le principal traducteur de Garcia Lorca et l'instigateur de sa diffusion en France. L'indéfectible amitié qui l'unit à Camus jusqu'à sa mort - il est à ses côtés lors de la remise de son Prix Nobel - font de lui un des principaux témoins de la vie de l'écrivain comme l'attestent ses contributions aux biographies de Herbert R. Lottman et de Olivier Todd. Emouvant et précieux envoi à cet ami des premières heures algériennes qui ont construit l'humanisme de Camus et auxquelles il consacra son dernier roman inachevé : « Le premier homme ».

        FERVEUR. Dessins originaux d’Émilienne MILANI .

      Raymond Jacquet (aux dépens d’un groupe d’amateurs), Paris. 1951 - Un volume grand in-4 ; 33,5 x 26 cm (reliure) ; 1050 g ; (12) 29 (11) pages. Illustré de 8 grands dessins hors-texte, non signés, à la mine de plomb. Tiré à 150 exemplaires sur papier Royal de Rives, le notre un des 12 hors commerce, N° X. Reliure plein chagrin grenat (Sylvie Leymonie-Bazin), plats ornés de larges compositions abstraites de cuirs de diverses couleurs et de papiers collés, dos lisse, auteur et titre dorés. « Ferveur » est tiré de « La Rose et le rosaire » (1945-1946), publié en 1947. Ouvrage consacré à la Vierge Marie, composé des feuillets « tombés » d’un livre que Claudel ne parviendra jamais à achever, « Assumpta est Maria », un immense « poème » sur l’Assomption, qui l’occupe pendant dix ans et qu’il ne parvient pas à unifier. La thématique centrale est celle de la femme, qui domine également le théâtre claudélien. Énigme vivante, objet désirable entre tous, la femme est de façon privilégiée la Vierge Marie, que Claudel voit représentée, suivant la tradition, dans la femme couronnée d’étoiles de l’Apocalypse et dans la cohorte des « saintes femmes » de l’Ancien Testament. Cet ensemble très rare pourrait être l’exemplaire d’Émilienne Milani, qui aurait relié ses dessins originaux et négligé ensuite de les signer ? C’est une conjecture assez plausible car les dessins sont incontestablement à la mine de plomb. Il faudrait comparer cet exemplaire avec l’un des 138 in-commerce dont les lithographies ont probablement été signées sur la pierre Un très bel ouvrage pour bibliophiles avertis, aimant les reliures originales et – pourquoi pas – amateurs de Claudel.

      Gallimard, 1951. - Gallimard, Paris 1951, 12x19cm, broché. - Prima edizione, una copia del servizio stampa. Molto prezioso ed emozionante autografo firmato dall'autore a sua madre e sua sorella: "Alla mia cara, / questo libro può essere pericoloso per scrivere / può essere pericoloso per leggere / legato perché la distanza , / in tutto l'affetto e gratitudine / Eze 24 dicembre 1951. " Marguerite Blanchot, celebre organista Cattedrale di Chalon, è rimasto tutta la sua vita nella casa di famiglia con la madre e la zia. "E diventerà gradualmente, per la famiglia, come la memoria delle origini." Molto vicino a Maurice, che corrispondeva regolarmente con lo scrittore che lo riflette un grande riconoscimento per la sua dedizione alla loro madre impotente. Se intenso affetto Blanchot per sua madre e sua sorella brilla in dediche di essa, non sappiamo quasi nulla della loro relazione. Nel solo saggio biografico su Blanchot, Christophe Bident rivela, però: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot adorato fratello molto orgoglioso di lui, (...) che annette grande importanza alle sue idee politiche (...) Ha letto un sacco (.... .) hanno telefonato corrispondeva. Una distanza, hanno condiviso la stessa autorità naturale, la stessa preoccupazione di discrezione ". Blanchot lo affronta infatti molti libri dalla sua biblioteca, ora con il suo continuo legame intellettuale. Come la passione di Blanchot per la madre, è la volta del suo lavoro che scopriamo i migliori esempi: "Forse il potere della figura materna che prende in prestito la sua luminosità alla stessa potenza fascinazione, e si potrebbe dire che se la madre porta questa affascinante attrazione è come appare quando il bambino vive interamente sotto lo sguardo di fascino, si concentra in sé tutti i poteri di incanto ". Coltivare assoluta discrezione, Blanchot ha spinto l'arte di cancellare nelle sue dediche manoscritte generalmente brevi e quasi sempre scritte su schede allegate ai libri rari offrì i suoi amici più stretti. Al contrario, in questi preziosi elementi a sua madre e sua sorella, Blanchot offre in tutta la sua fragilità e, nella privacy di questa corrispondenza, il suo lavoro si concentra su un aspetto personale precedentemente sconosciuto. Nizza copia. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Très précieux et émouvant envoi autographe signé de Maurice Blanchot à sa mère et à sa soeur : "Pour vous mes très chères, / ce livre, peut - être dangereux à écrire / peut - être dangereux à lire, / parce que lié au lointain, / en toute affection et reconnaissance / Eze, le 24 Décembre 1951." Marguerite Blanchot, organiste de renom à la cathédrale de Chalon, demeura toute sa vie dans la maison familiale, avec sa mère et sa tante. "Elle deviendra peu à peu, pour la famille, comme la mémoire des origines." Très proche de Maurice, elle correspond régulièrement avec l'écrivain qui lui témoigne une grande reconnaissance pour son dévouement envers leur mère impotente. Si l'intense affection de Blanchot pour sa mère et sa soeur transparait dans les dédicaces de celui - ci, on ne sait presque rien de leurs relations. Dans l'unique essai biographique sur Blanchot, Christophe Bident nous révèle cependant : "Marguerite Blanchot vénérait son frère Maurice. Très fière de lui, (...) elle attachait une grande importance à ses idées politiques (...). Elle lisait beaucoup (...) Ils se téléphonaient, correspondaient. A distance, ils partageaient la même autorité naturelle, le même souci de discrétion." Blanchot lui adresse en effet de nombreux ouvrages provenant de sa bibliothèque, maintenant avec elle un lien intellectuel continu. Quant à la passion de Blanchot pour sa mère, c'est au détour de son oeuvre que l'on en découvre les plus beaux témoignages: "Peut - être la puissance de la figure maternelle emprunte - t - elle son éclat à la puissance même de la fascination, et l'on pourrait dire que si la Mère exerce cet attrait fascinant, c'est qu'apparaissant quand l'enfant vit tout entier sous le regard de la fascination, elle concentre en elle tous les pouvoirs de l'enchantement".Cultivant une discrétion absolue, Blanchot poussait l'art de l'effacement jusque dans ses dédicaces manuscrites généralement succinctes et rédigées presque systématiquement sur des cartes jointes aux rares ouvrages qu'il offrait à ses proches amis. A l'opposé, dans ces précieux envois à sa mère et sa soeur, Blanchot s'offre dans toute sa fragilité et, dans l'intimité de cette correspondance, porte sur son oeuvre un regard personnel jusqu'alors inconnu. Agréable exemplaire.
