        Through the road of a Neo-Realism or modern social realistic painting in Mexico / Por la Via de una Pintura Neorrealista o Realista Social Moderna en Mexico / Sur la Route d'une Peinture Neo-Realiste ou Realiste Social Moderne au Mexique. 215 Reproductions/Reproducciones.

      Mexico, Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes, 1951.. Square-Folio. 240 images. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket. INSCRIBED by David Alfaro Siqueiros. Extensive dedication by Siqueiros to the photographer Bernard Myers (author of: Bernard S. Myers, Mexican Painting in Our Time (1956). Original cloth with only like dustjacket. Some major repairs to dustjacket.. Jose David Alfaro Siqueiros (December 29, 1896 in Camargo, Chihuahua, Mexico - January 6, 1974 in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico) was a social realist painter (muralist), and also a Stalinist, known for large murals in fresco that established the Mexican Mural Renaissance together with work by Diego Rivera, Orozco, and others. His notable projects include his collaborative mural at the Mexican Electricians' Union (1939-1940), From Porfiriato to the Revolution at the Museum of National History (1957-55), March of Humanity and the Polyforum Cultural Siqueiros on Avenida Insurgentes (1965-1971), and his role in procuring mural commissions for artists on the University City campus of the National Autonomous University of Mexico in 1950s Mexico City. Siqueiros was one of "the big three" Mexican muralists, led by Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco. His art directly reflected the time period in which he flourished as an artist. His art was deeply rooted in the Spanish Civil War and the Mexican Revolution, a violent and chaotic period in Mexican history in which various social and political factions fought for recognition and power. The period from the 1920s to the 1950s is known as the Mexican Mural Renaissance, (see also Mexican Muralism) and Siqueiros was active in the attempt to create an art that was at once Mexican and universal. From 1919 to 1922 he traveled to Belgium, France, Italy, and Spain to study art. Throughout his career he traveled internationally, promoting his version of muralism in the United States, South America (including Uruguay, Argentina and Chile), Cuba, Europe, and the Soviet Union. In 1966 he was awarded the Lenin Peace Prize. Political activism was an important piece of Siqueiros' life. A self-proclaimed Marxist, he was at times both the favorite and the enemy of the Mexican Communist Party. He was exiled twice from Mexico, once in 1932 and again in 1940, following his assassination attempt on Leon Trotsky. (Wikipedia)

        Collection of photos and typed documents.

      Mostly Dammam, 1951-1953, with additional material to 1959.. Collection of 57 black-and-white photographs (30 sized 10 x 13 cm, 25 sized 20 x 25 cm, all on RC paper, and 2 prints on baryta paper, c. 21 x 21 cm). Includes: 67-page small folio typescript "Rules for the Government of the Operating Department" of the Saudi Government Railroad, bound in green cardboard folder. 19-page "Dammam Port Information": rules and rates as governed by the Saudi Government Railroad Tariff No. 2. Also includes 6 pp. of contemporary journalist's typescript for a news item on the new railroad, as well as 37 pp. of project notes and memoranda, some labelled "Confidential", on Aramco's project and budget development for programming, materials, and infrastructure projects for 1959. With two folding maps of Aramco's Senior Staff Camp at Dharan as of May 1958, as well as a 1961 Lebanese-issued International Driver's Licence authorized for use in Saudi Arabia.. Unique, intriguing collection of unknown photographs and typescript material documenting the arrival from America and inauguration of the Saudi Government Railroad trains in late 1951 and the early days of their operation. While not the earliest railway ever to run on the Arabian Peninsula (that honour belongs to the Hejaz Railway, which was built by the Ottomans with German support, ran from Jordan to Medina and operated only between 1908 and 1915), the Saudi Arabian Government Railroad - now the Saudi Railways Organization - was in fact the first modern railway in the region. Installed with U.S. aid after World War II to facilitate the transport of goods to ARAMCO from the ports on the Arabian Gulf coast to warehouses in Dhahran, it quickly extended on to Riyadh, 350 miles away. Construction by the Bechtel Company started in October 1947, and Veteran American railroad engineer James H. Gildea was hired to oversee the project. The photographs show the arrival, by ship, of the streamlined lightweight stainless steel Diesel and passenger cars built by the Budd Company of Philadelphia, their unloading, and the railroad's inauguration by Their Royal Highnesses King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud and his son, Crown Prince Saud bin Abdulaziz. The images document the formal reception by the Royal family, their ride in the special Royal carriage, the Saudi military's guard of honour, and the close interaction between the U.S. operatives and the Saudi dignitaries. The collection forms the archive of (Floyd) Ray Hansen (1901-72), a U.S. technician and military major who worked for the Saudi Railroad from the very beginning and thus had the opportunity to capture on film moments of history otherwise almost entirely undocumented. As Hansen's journalist wife Ida writes in her feature "Doings at Dammam", composed for the Aramco weekly "Arabian Sun and Flare", the 88 mph trains "streak along the tracks like a silver comet and offer the most in luxury and smooth riding comfort with their wide picture windows and comfortably upholstered seats in maroon and blue leather. One car has been set aside for the exclusive use of The Royal Family. This car is beautifully appointed with high back plush seats finished in needle point in a dusty rose and sponge rubber cushions for greater riding comfort [...]" (quoted from the original manuscript, present here). Also included with the set is Hansen's personal, inscribed copy of the Saudi Railroad's "Rules for the Government of the Operating Department", effective as of August 15, 1953, issued by the General Manager, J. H. Gildea. An unpretentious illustrated typescript, the manual contains the full official regulations for timetables, signals, service, inspection, engineering, and operation in general. Along with the additional technical Saudi Railroad and Aramco material, this fascinating trove offers a window into a time of astonishingly rapid transition on the Gulf coast, effected by the close cooperation of two of the century's principal industrial players.

        The Catcher In The Rye

      Boston:: Little Brown,, 1951.. Boston: Little Brown, 1951. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Near fine in the dust jacket which has had some professional restoration to the spine extremities. The dust jacket is the correct first issue with the cropping of Salinger's head on the rear panel and the price on the front flap. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher In the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists. It begins, "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them.

        Hangsaman [Inscribed Association Copy]

      NY|~|: Farrar Straus Young|~|, (1951)|~|. NY: Farrar Straus Young. (1951). Her third book, second novel, and her first book to be published after the acclaim, and controversy, surrounding "The Lottery" -- both the story itself and the collection it gave its name to. Inscribed in the year of publication to William Jay Smith and Barbara Howes: "For Barbara and Bill. Affectionately, Shirley." With the Howes/Smith bookplate now laid in. Smith is a onetime Poet Laureate of the U.S. and both he and Howes, his wife, were National Book Award finalists for their poetry. Howes also edited an avant garde literary magazine, Chimera, in the 1940s, and she produced anthologies of Caribbean literature and Latin American literature that helped bring major authors from those regions to the attention of North American readers and critics. Jackson was living in Vermont at the time of this book's publication, where her husband, writer and literary critic Stanley Edgar Hyman, was a professor at Bennington, which was also Howes' alma mater. The fictional college in Hangsaman is based on Bennington, and the plot is in part based on the true-life disappearance of a Bennington student in 1946. Smith-Howes and Hyman-Jackson were at the time two of the preeminent literary couples in America, making this an excellent literary association copy. Glue residue on the front pastedown where the bookplate had resided; minor foxing to boards, else a near fine copy in a very good, supplied dust jacket with rubbing to the folds and several tiny chips and closed edge tears. Also corner clipped on the upper front flap, with the price ($3.00) stamped in the lower corner. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Lettre autographe signée ("Jean").

      Santo Sospir (Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat), 12. IV. 1951. - 1 page in-petit 4. À Mary Hoeck, traductrice de ses œuvres en anglais: "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 [.]".

        Les Faits mystérieux de l’Île-Bouchard. Et documents originaux divers

      Gilbert-Clarey, Tours 1951 - Brochure agrafée originale de 1951, 44pp. éditions Gibert-Clarey, Tours, non signée mais rédigée par Monseigneur Robert Fiot sur les apparitions de la Vierge Marie à l'Île-Bouchard en 1947, + des photographies originales, des cartes postales, un tapuscrit de XIII feuillets 21x27cm (non signé) et un ensemble de lettres d’un éditeur souhaitant publier le récit des apparitions. Dans « Les Apparitions de l’Île-Bouchard : documents authentiques » (Editions de l’Emmanuel, 2002, page 14), B. Peyrous et E. Béranger écrivent : « Nous y retrouvons les caractéristiques habituelles de l’action de Dieu : une situation délicate et même impossible à gérer, à vue humaine, des moyens pauvres, un résultat imprévisible, le tout entouré d’une immense tendresse du Ciel. Au moment où la France faillit se précipiter dans une guerre civile que tout le monde prévoyait imminente et à laquelle on se préparait de part et d’autre, Marie apparut, dans un village de Touraine, à quatre petites filles, leur demanda la prière des enfants pour la France, puis manifesta sa joie et sa louange. Les apparitions durèrent du lundi 8 décembre au dimanche 14. L’Eglise, toujours prudente, encouragea de plus en plus le pèlerinage, et le 8 décembre 2001, le reconnut comme pèlerinage officiel du diocèse du Tours, susceptible d’un culte public. » De fait, ce n’est que le 22 août 1951 que les autorités diocésaines ont délivré l’imprimatur pour la publication de la première brochure sur les apparitions, celle de ce lot, rédigée par Monseigneur Fiot, recueillant les fonds déjà établis par le chanoine Clovis Ségelle au moment des apparitions, puis par l’abbé Souillet qui enquêta dès la fin de 1947, mais procédant lui-même à de nombreux interrogatoires. Après des notes préliminaires de présentation des lieux et des petites filles, le texte propose une chronologie détaillée des faits. Cette brochure fut maintes fois rééditée. Il s’agit ici de l’édition originale sous couverture vert pâle imprimée en noir. La correspondance, entre le 21 novembre 1948 et le 24 janvier 1951 est une documentation intéressante montrant les efforts vains d’un éditeur parisien, Georges Bénard, pour arracher l’imprimatur du diocèse pour son projet d’éditer un opuscule sur les apparitions. Géorges Bénard, des éditions Rivarol, était notamment connu pour avoir commis en 1935 un violent pamphlet anti-parlementaire (Les Pourritures terrestres : Corrupteurs et assassins). Il s’entretient avec un certain A. Caillé, qui est en relation avec le doyen Ségelle, pour obtenir l’autorisation de publication. En désespoir de cause, il rédige un long courrier au Monseigeur de l’archevêché de Tours (ici son brouillon manuscrit au crayon). Il justifie son intérêt pour les apparitions et sa volonté de ne faire aucun commentaire et de simplement relater les faits, offrant les droits d’auteur et tous les bénéfices au diocèse. Il termine sa prose par ce vœu : « Je m’excuse de ce long épitre, mais je désirerai tant contribuer à faire plaisir à la Sainte Vierge, à laquelle je dois beaucoup, que j’ai pris l’audace de vous importuner. ». Sur papier à en-tête de l’Archevêché de Tours, la réponse reste négative, et un courrier manuscrit d’A. Caillé relate l’irritation que le doyen Ségelle a éprouvé en apprenant l’initiative de Bénard. Dans la documentation, on trouve aussi un courrier manuscrit de l’une des trois enfants ayant vu la Vierge, Jacqueline Aubry, probablement adressé à Mme Bénard, 3 cartes postales de l’église Saint-Gilles, 5 photos personnelles 6,5x9cm dont deux portraits de Jacqueline Aubry sur la place du village et une photo 9x14cm de la même avec 3 autres fillettes non identifiées. Le tapuscrit est vraisemblablement le récit des apparitions rédigé par Georges Bénard. + une coupure de presse de juillet 1948 sur une « miraculée de l’île-Bouchard ». C’est un ensemble passionnant, montrant la prudence de l’église sur les apparitions. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Catcher in the Rye

      Boston: Little, Brown. 1951. Salinger's classic first book, signed by the author: "17 Dec. 1953/ Hanover/ with all good wishes/ J.D. Salinger." Now bound in full red morocco, this copy was once in the stacks of the Dartmouth College Library, which Salinger made a home of over the course of at least four decades, from the early 1950s through the 1980s. Signed without fanfare (or perhaps even notice) in 1953 and returned to the stacks and into circulation, where students contributed notations to the text, sometimes "improving" the writing or, in one case, enthusiastically endorsing a passage ("go! go!"). Prior to the current morocco binding, the book had been removed from its original binding and rebound in standard library buckram, at which point the book was trimmed at the top and bottom, so the text block is now shorter than that of a typical first edition and rounded, but even that binding did not withstand the use of its readership, and the copy was discarded by the library ("discard" stamp present) without acknowledgment of that day in 1953 when a young author took his own creation from the shelf of his local haunt, acknowledged it as his own, and returned it to the world. There then followed such a history of un-selfconscious reading in this book that it is impossible not to think of Salinger's dedication in his later book, Raise High the Roof Beam, in which, after a decade of dodging celebrity seekers, he wrote: "If there is an amateur reader still left in the world -- or anybody who just reads and runs -- I ask him or her, with untellable affection and gratitude, to split the dedication of this book four ways with my wife and children." A heartwarming copy of one of the true rarities of 20th century American literature. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        The Catcher In The Rye.

      Boston: Little Brown, 1951. - First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a bright near fine dust jacket without the usual tanning to the spine and without any chips or tears. The dust jacket is the correct first issue with the cropping of Salinger's head on the rear panel and the price on the front flap. Housed in a custom clamshell box. An exceptional copy. Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher In the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists. It begins, "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them."

The first volume is near fine in a very good dust jacket. The other volumes are near fine to fine in excellent dust jackets that only show light wear. A very attractive set.Anthony Powell's universally acclaimed epic encompasses a twelve-volume panorama of twentieth century London.

Amid the fever of the 1920s and the first chill of the 1930s, Nick Jenkins and his friends confront sex, society, business, and art. In the second volume they move to London in a whirl of marriage and adulteries, fashions and frivolities, personal triumphs and failures. These books "provide an unsurpassed picture, at once gay and melancholy, of social and artistic life in Britain between the wars" (Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.). Listed on Modern Library's 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century. Time magazine included the novel in its100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005.

        XIX Century Fiction. A Bibliographical Record based on his own Collection

      Two vols. Large 4to, orig. cloth, upper cover of Vol. II a little marked. Cambridge: Printed at the University Press, [1951]. Limited to 1025 copies, this is John Carter's annotated review copy of this influential catalogue. Sadleir has added the following inscription on the half-title of Vol. I: "for John Carter without whose...(and all that) from his friend M.S. Jan. 1951." Carter was greatly involved in correcting the proofs of this catalogue and was also the author of the TLS review. There is much material laid-in: 1. A seven-page typewritten "Notes and Queries" by Carter sent to Sadleir while the catalogue was in proof, making many detailed comments and queries. 2. A seven-page typewritten reply from Sadleir, similarly detailed. 3. The remains of two dust-jackets with many comments by Carter. 4. Carter's TLS review (a press cutting). 5. Michael Sadleir's A.L.s., 2 pages, 13th April 1951, thanking Carter for his warm review of this book. 6. An offprint of Carter's "valediction" following Michael Sadleir's death (from The Book Collector). 7. A batch of correspondence between Carter and R.F. Sadleir, the son of Michael, regarding an augmented reissue. 8. Carter has inserted correspondence and clippings throughout the catalogue at the relevant openings. But what is really wonderful about this copy and makes it so special are the large number of notes, corrections, additions, and deletions throughout which Carter has made. Fine set with Carter's bookplate. .

        Hangsaman [Inscribed Association Copy]

      NY: Farrar Straus Young. (1951). Her third book, second novel, and her first book to be published after the acclaim, and controversy, surrounding "The Lottery" -- both the story itself and the collection it gave its name to. Inscribed in the year of publication to William Jay Smith and Barbara Howes: "For Barbara and Bill. Affectionately, Shirley." With the Howes/Smith bookplate now laid in. Smith is a onetime Poet Laureate of the U.S. and both he and Howes, his wife, were National Book Award finalists for their poetry. Howes also edited an avant garde literary magazine, Chimera, in the 1940s, and she produced anthologies of Caribbean literature and Latin American literature that helped bring major authors from those regions to the attention of North American readers and critics. Jackson was living in Vermont at the time of this book's publication, where her husband, writer and literary critic Stanley Edgar Hyman, was a professor at Bennington, which was also Howes' alma mater. The fictional college in Hangsaman is based on Bennington, and the plot is in part based on the true-life disappearance of a Bennington student in 1946. Smith-Howes and Hyman-Jackson were at the time two of the preeminent literary couples in America, making this an excellent literary association copy. Glue residue on the front pastedown where the bookplate had resided; minor foxing to boards, else a near fine copy in a very good, supplied dust jacket with rubbing to the folds and several tiny chips and closed edge tears. Also corner clipped on the upper front flap, with the price ($3.00) stamped in the lower corner. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Typed Letter Signed on "Supreme Court" letterhead

      Washington, D.C., 1951. unbound. Outstanding typed letter signed, 1 page, 4to, 10.5 x 8 inches, on "Supreme Court of the United States" letterhead, Washington, D.C., March 31, 1951. Written to powerful New York attorney and power broker Frederick R. Coudert, on the correct method of presenting argument before the Supreme Court and coming to the defense of Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. In part: "How right you are that counsel have no business here unless they are willing to engage in the Socratic method which, no one knows better than you, has been traditional with this Court. The beastly habit of too many counsel in reading their arguments, and too often reading from their briefs, makes me wonder if they know that the printing press has been invented. The whole point of oral argument is to bring to bear the force of personality and to reach the mind of the Court by a different route and through a different impact than the brief affords...You who knew Mr. Justice Holmes well must be amused, though perhaps saddened, by the fantastic attacks that are now made, largely of Jesuit source, whereby that good and tender man is charged with being the fountainhead of totalitarianism. I am sure were he here now he would say of these attacks, as of some others against him in his lifetime, that they deserve "intelligent neglect." Note: One week before this letter was written, Westbrook Pegler used his syndicated column to announce to the world that "Holmes was a cynical and senile brutalitarian," "the God of an evil cult," a "brutal old faker," and that he "had no morals than a pig" -- all this by direct pipe-line, through the Harvard Law Review and Felix Frankfurter. [From: Justice Holmes and his Heckler, Yale Law Journal, 1951, by Fred Rodell]. Natural folds; near fine condition. Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court (1939 - 1962); appointed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

        God and Man at Yale: The Superstitions of "Academic Freedom"

      Chicago: Henry Regnery Company, 1951. First edition of the author's first book and seminal work. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket that shows some light wear. Inscribed by the author, "For Senator Owen Brewster with best wishes and admiration William F. Buckley." The recipient served in the United States Senate from 1941 to 1952, and was also governor for the State of Maine. Also laid in is a blank letterhead from the United States Senate Comittee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, where Brewster served on. A very sharp copy, with a nice association. William F. Buckley's God Man at Yale "concludes that the values inculcated at Yale 'are agnostic as to religion, interventionist and Keynesian as to economics, and collectivist as applied to the relation of the individual to society and government… A like case could be made out against the economics teaching in many other leading American universities today" (Hazlitt, The Free Man's Library, 48).
