        Signed Portrait Photograph.

      London: Vivienne, 20th Century Studios,, [1951]. Portrait photograph (185 x 148mm) showing Churchill seated half-length in black formal jacket and bow-tie. Mounted, glazed and presented in a wooden frame (246 x 195 mm). Signature on the mount slightly faded but the photograph itself remaining fresh. In very good condition, with the frame a little scratched and marked, and some tears to paper backing of frame. Signed by Churchill on the mount and by the photographer in white ink ("Vivienne/London") on the print. This is one of Churchill's favourite photographs of himself, with a typed note on Chartwell-headed paper ("With Mr. Churchill's/compliments, thanks/and good wishes") affixed to the reverse of the frame. It was taken by Florence Vivienne Mellish, known simply as "Vivienne", who was one of the leading society photographers of the mid-20th century, and the mother-in-law of his daughter Sarah. Known as "the Grand Old Lady of the Camera", Vivienne famously insisted that her sitters, which included seven prime ministers, come to her studio rather than she to them. The only exception to the rule was Churchill, who spared her ten minutes, during which she produced nine studies, this one being used for the election campaign of 1950. Her son also found success with society and show-business portraits, moving to Hollywood, and in 1949 marrying Churchill's actress daughter Sarah; "unfortunately Churchill and his wife learned of the marriage, which took place in the United States, from the newspapers, journalists having been speedier with the news than Sarah's own telegram" (Gilbert, Churchill, VIII, p. 496). At first both parents, but particularly Clementine "took it very hard indeed", but later "all was resolved. 'We have made friends with Antony's father and mother,' Clementine wrote to Sarah on December 20 [1949], 'and we had an agreeable luncheon together'". Subsequently Vivienne took Churchill's portrait many times, at her studio, and at Chartwell. Over 200 of her photographs are held in the National Portrait Gallery.

FRAMED WITH: Typed letter, one sheet of buff paper, measuring 5 by 8 inches. Framed with photograph of Churchill, entire piece measures measures 17 1/4 by 15 inches. $8500.1951 voucher to the Ascot races, signed by Churchill. This voucher filled out to his son, Randolph, enabling him to watch his father’s horse race. Accompanied by letter to Randolph from on of Churchill’s secretaries. Handsomely framed with a black-and-white photograph of the prime minister.The voucher, bearing Churchill’s signature on the “Member’s Signature” line, is made out to Churchill’s son Randolph. A letter from one of Churchill’s secretaries accompanies the voucher for the Ascot races. The younger Churchill would have been going to Ascot to watch his father’s horse, Colonist II, race. “In 1949, the Epsom vet Major Anthony Carey Foster (later racing manager for Churchill) saw an unprepossessing grey colt running in France; while only half-fit, the horse still finished second. Impressed, Carey Foster bought him for the trainer Walter Nightingall, who showed him to Christopher Soames, Churchill's son-in-law. Churchill was Leader of the Opposition, having been cast out as Prime Minister in 1945; Soames evidently felt that he needed a new interest and talked him into buying the grey. The horse’s name was Colonist II… [he won] 13 races in his career and nearly £12,000 in prize money… [and] even reflected Churchill’s politics by running best on courses bending to the right” (Churchill Centre). A fine piece of Churchilliana, handsomely framed. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [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. .

Eine Monographienreihe, herausgegeben in Verbindung mit einer Arbeitsgemeinschaft. ? ?Den Verfasser hatten seinerzeit zur Herausgabe eines Buches über den Goldschmied Hans Peter Staffelbach nebst der Bewunderung für dessen Grösse auch verwandtschaftliche Gründe veranlasst. Als Surseer, reizt es ihn, im vorliegenden Werke über seine Mitbürgerin, die bekannte Hinterglasmalerin Anna Barbara ab Esch, zu schreiben, die ein Kunsthandwerk betrieb, das für seine Heimatstadt typisch ist und für das er stetsfort ein grosses Interesse hegte. In der ?Geschichte der Luzerner Glasmalerei? von Prof. Dr. Hans Lehmann, ist die Geschichte der Hinterglasmalerei nicht bearbeitet worden. Es ist daher berechtigt, dieses interessante, für den Kanton Luzern charakteristische Kunstgewerbe gesondert zu würdigen. Ein Spezialwerk über die schweizerischen oder luzernischen Malereien hinter Glas existiert bis jetzt nicht. Man musste allen Gemälden hinter Glas einzeln nachgehen, von denen man grösstenteils bloss gesprächsweise zum erstenmal etwas gehört hatte. [.] In unserm Buche ist in erster Linie auf die Stücke luzernischer Herkunft Rücksicht genommen worden. Wir notierten aber auch Hinterglasgemälde ausserkantonaler und fremder Provenienz, die sich in Luzerner Besitz befinden, oder die Luzernern gehörten oder ihre Wappenschilder tragen. Weil noch kein Werk über die schweizerische Hinterglasmalerei existiert, möchten wir vor allem mit unserer Darstellung die Forschung anregen.? (p. V f.). ? Inhalt: I.

Abesch (Namensvariante/n: Abäsch, Ab Esch, Vonesch), Maler- und Hinterglasmalerfamilie aus Sursee, Ende 17. bis Ende 18. Jahrhundert. Führte die Hinterglasmalerei in der Innerschweiz zu hoher Blüte. Tätigkeitsbereiche: Malerei, Glasmalerei, Schmuck (SIKART). ?Die Abesch stammen ursprünglich vom Gehöft Esch bei Ettiswil (LU). In Sursee sind die Anfänge der Hinterglasmalerei um 1680 wohl im Umkreis des Glasmalers Karl Ludwig Thuot (nachweisbar 1673?1693) zu suchen. Der auch als Tafelmaler tätige Johann Peter Abesch etablierte die Tradition dieser Maltechnik. Während seine Schwester Katharina Abesch (Gattin des Goldschmieds Hans Peter Staffelbach) nur sehr wenige Werke hinterliess, führte seine Tochter Anna Barbara diese Kunst in Sursee und der Innerschweiz zur Hochblüte. In ihrem Umkreis wirkten mehrere Spezialisten und Spezialistinnen dieses Fachs. Darunter befinden sich mehrere Verwandte: Neben Johann Peter und Katharina auch ihr Bruder Peter Anton Abesch und ihre Nichte Anna Maria Josepha Magdalena von Hospenthal.

        Albert Einstein: Philosopher - Scientist

      Library of Living Philosophers, Evanston, IL, 1951. 2nd edition . hardcover. Fine/Fine. "Written by the man considered the 'Person of the Century' by Time magazine, this is not a glimpse into Einstein's personal life, but an extension and elaboration into his thinking on science. Two of the great theories of the physical world were created in the early 20th century: the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. Einstein created the theory of relativity and was also one of the founders of quantum theory. Here, Einstein describes the failure of classical mechanics and the rise of the electromagnetic field, the theory of relativity, and of the quanta."[Pub. Info] Written in German by Einstein, translated by Paul Schilpp. Brief autobiography accompanied by various essays by leading scholars about Einstein's scientific work. Nobel Prize in Physics 1921 was awarded to Albert Einstein "for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect." [] There is a protective mylar cover. 2ND EDITION.

        The War Speeches

      1951. CHURCHILL, Winston S. The War Speeches of the Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill. Compiled by Charles Eade. Three volumes. Small 4to., bound in publisher's cloth with dustwrappers. London: Cassell & Company Ltd, 1951-52.|~| |~||~||~||~||~||~| A fine set of the first complete edition of Churchill's celebrated wartime speeches which "form a contemporary history of the conflict in which he was the chief architect of victory." Volume one begins with his Speech delivered at the Free Trade Hall, Manchester, on May 9, 1938 in which Churchill first articulates his concern with the developments in Germany and his unwillingness to believe Hitler's promises that Germany had no designs for future expansion in Europe after annexing Austria a few months earlier. The heart of the volumes are found in his magnificent rallying speeches delivered to the English peoples during the dark years of the war. Facsimiles of his original typed speeches with written excisions and corrections in Churchill's hand, and a number of wartime speeches which are not to be found in the separate volumes issued during the war are included herein. The third volume ends with Churchill's brief resignation statement on July 26, 1945 after his defeat in the general election. An unusually fine set with the fragile cream dustwrappers in fine condition. Woods A 136.

      Philippe Gonin, Paris 1951 - With an Inscribed Original Wood Engraving by the Artist. 327 x 248 mm (12 7/8 x 9 3/4"). 111, [2] pp., [1] leaf (colophon). Translated by L'Abbé Delille [pseudonym of the Chevalier de Langeac]. ONE OF 200 COPIES. Loose as issued in publisher's cream-colored wrappers and vellum-backed portfolio, black titling on spine. In a later patterned paper slipcase. With 80 wood engravings by Lucile Passavant. First preliminary leaf warmly inscribed "To Ed and Mary [Thom?]" from "[Denise?] and Louis"; second preliminary leaf inscribed by the artist to the Thoms; a greeting card illustrated and inscribed by the artist to Mr. and Mrs. Thom laid in at front. A hint of soil to spine, corners worn to boards, faint freckling to covers, the text with isolated trivial foxing, but an excellent copy, the text clean and fresh, and the binding a good deal more than good enough. This is a finely printed and illustrated edition of Virgil's first century B.C. pastoral poems, with intriguing provenance. These evocative and mysterious eclogues (or bucolics) are of great importance as an inspiration for the entire European tradition of pastoral poetry. Additionally, they provided an oblique commentary--of considerable contemporaneous interest--on Roman politics during the time that Gaius Octavian Caesar consolidated his power in the age of post-Julian turmoil. In terms of its modern importance, the book is a showcase for sculptress, painter, and wood engraver Lucile Passavant (1910-2012), who began her career as a voluptuous model posing for French sculptor Aristide Maillol (1861-1944). Though married, he fell in love with her, and she became his mistress. Maillol's close friend and patron, Count Harry Kessler (of Cranach Press fame) wrote in his diary, "in addition to having the kind of young, firm, heavy body that Maillol loved, Lucile was indeed a bright girl, with a talent for sculpture. Her work compares quite favorably with what Maillol was doing at that time. Her young mind was like a sponge, soaking up the master's sense of form and design. She also picked up his sense of graphic design. She carved woodcuts to illustrate classical poetry just like Aristide had done years earlier. She was a natural." As for provenance, the connection between Mr. and Mrs. Thom and Passavant may have been of some importance, as the French notes from the artist to the owners here reflect a friendly relationship.
