        Mr. Lincoln's Army

      New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1951. First edition of the first volume in the author's acclaimed Army of the Potomac trilogy. Octavo, original light blue cloth. Signed by the author on the half title page. Fine in a very good dust jacket that shows some chipping to the crown and foot of the spine. Bookclub editions of this volume abound, but in our experience firsts are rather uncommon and rare signed. The Army of the Potomac Trilogy, Catton's most widely ready work, recounts the bitter struggle between the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Virginia, and this first volume chronicles the early years under the command of General McClellan.

        Portrait of Vivien Leigh as Blanche Dubois in a Streetcar Named Desire. Original oil painting.

      c. 1951. - Oil on board. c. 1951. signed. 11 x 7 inches. Framed and glazed. Peake first met Lawrence Olivier in Germany in 1945 and would use this friendly meeting as an introduction in 1950 when he attempted to persuade Olivier and his wife Vivien Leigh to produce and act in his play The Wit to Woo. According to Olivier, Leigh liked the play but his approches came to nothing and they eventually gave upon it in 1952. During this period Vivien Leigh starred in Elia Kazan's film of Tennessee William's A Streetcar Named Desire. This haunting portrayal won Leigh an Oscar for the role. Portraits by Peake of well-known people rarely appear on the market.

        SIDDHARTHA. EINE INDISCHE DICHTUNG

      (New York): The New Classics Series (New Directions), (1951). First American Edition. Hardcover. Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper with a short, closed tear at the bottom front and a sunned spine. First English language Trade Edition, preceded only by New Direction's slipcased limited edition. First issue with "Patterson" on the verso of the half-title page. Translated from the German by Hilda Rosner. SIGNED and INSCRIBED by Henry Miller on the front free endpaper: "To Mrs. Edna Liebmann/who, I hope, will/spread the good/news./Henry Miller/8/10/52." Laid in are two AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED (ALSs) by Miller to Liebmann with the original mailing envelopes addressed in Miller's hand from 1957 and 1958. Dustwrapper art by Alvin Lustig. One of this Nobel Prize winner's two famous and important novels, the other being of course STEPPENWOLF. Hesse based this book on the early life of Gautama Buddha. The story of a son rebelling against his father's teaching and traditions and eventually finding true enlightenment resonated with those maturing in the 1960s and 1970s making this title something of a cult classic. It was made into a beautiful film in 1972 by Conrad Rooks.

        Cahiers Du Cinema Revue Mensuelle Du Cinéma Et Du Télécinéma: Nos. 1-5

      Les Editions De L'Etoile, Paris 1951 - Five issues. Uniform yellow photo-illustrated wrappers, lettered in black. Between 50 and 60 pp., profusely illustrated with b&w photographs throughout, advertisements at rear. A little light wear to corners and spines, spine glue detaching from contents in Nos. 4 and 5. L'Age Du Cinéma insert present in No. 4. A very nice set. First editions. THE FIRST FIVE ISSUES OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL CINEMA MAGAZINE EVER PUBLISHED. Since its inception more than sixty years ago, Cahiers Du Cinéma has been responsible for fundamental change in both the practice and the perception of cinema. Founded by film theorist and critic André Bazin in 1951, the magazine proudly laid out its manifesto from the outset, hailing cinema as an art form every bit as important as literature, music or painting, and according its practitioners the title of artist, not artiste. For sixty years it has championed the serious over the merely entertaining, the heroic failure over the safe success and, most importantly, a distinctive European voice over transatlantic homogeneity. The magazine's flavour is captured by its list of the 100 best films of all time, published in 2008. Citizen Kane and Night of the Hunter top a roll call otherwise dominated by European and World cinema, with an occasional nod to the likes of Howard Hawks and John Ford. It's quirkiness is characteristic of the magazine: there are the names you would expect to find (Bergman, Fellini, Dreyer) but the chosen films are surprising (Fanny and Alexander, Amarcord, and Gertrud are their respective entries). Cahiers Du Cinema was at its most influential in the late 1950s, when the magazine became the official headquarters of the young directors of the French New Wave: Truffaut, Chabrol, Godard, Rohmer and Rivette. Socially, politically and intellectually engaged, these directors were the engine room of La Nouvelle Vague , a movement which set the future course not just of European cinema, but also that of the American indie movement of the 1970s, whose leading lights were weaned on the films promoted and popularised by Cahiers. Political infighting led to dark days for the magazine in the early 1970s -- movies and Maoism don't mix -- and the magazine has always had a tendency to disappear up its own cul from time to time. But its faults notwithstanding, Cahiers remains the most influential and respected film magazine ever published. A lovely run of the first five issues of this magisterial publication -- the New Yorker of cinema.

        Five Days After His ?Old Soldiers Never Die? Speech, Recently-Removed General Douglas Macarthur Is Thanked By Telegram For His Service To The Republic Of Korea

      Telegram. 1pg. 8 ½? x 7 ½?. Apr. 24, 1951. A telegram addressed to General Douglas MacArthur at his residence in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York from ?Chi Chung Chun, Speaker for the Democratic Nationalist Party of the Republic of Korea?. At the close of MacArthur?s involvement in the Korean War, Chi Chung Chun thanked MacArthur for his vast efforts in support of Korean freedom: ?The Democratic Nationalist Party of the Republic of Korea expresses its deepest gratitude for your immortal contribution to the freedom of Korea and to the cause of democracy believing that your championship in the fight for freedom will be engraved forever in the history of Korea and of free nations.? On April 11th, 1951, President Truman had relieved MacArthur of his command of the United States Army due to MacArthur?s supposed insubordination and disregard of Truman?s orders when speaking to the press. Five days prior to the telegram, on April 19, 1951, MacArthur gave his famous and much lauded ?old soldiers never die, they just fade away? speech to Congress upon his official departure from the United States Army. Korea?s Democratic Nationalist Party was a conservative party that reorganized into the Democratic Party in 1955. The telegram is printed on paper with red borders bearing the RCA Communications name and logo, as well as the RCA watermark. It is in fine condition with a few small marks. A terrific MacArthur and Korean War relic.

        The Sword of Honour Trilogy: Men At Arms; Officers and Gentlemen; Unconditional Surrender

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1951-1961 First editions of each volume in the author's acclaimed "Sword of Honour Trilogy". Octavo, 3 volumes. Men At Arms is inscribed by the Waugh to fellow author, J.F. Powers, "For Jim Powers with admiration from Evelyn Waugh I bet you $1 you can't finish it". Officers and Gentlemen and Unconditional Surrender are both signed by Waugh. Each are near fine in very good to fine dust jackets. The Sword of Honour trilogy of novels about World War II, is largely based on the author's own experiences as an army officer and some critics ague the crowning achievement Waugh's career. Its central character is Guy Crouchback, head of an ancient but decayed Catholic family, who at first discovers new purpose in the challenge to defend Christian values against Nazi barbarism, but then gradually finds the complexities and cruelties of war too much for him. "Sword of Honour was the climax of [Waugh's] career as a novelist . . . Here in his final work there run together the two styles, of mischief and gravity, that can be noted in his writing from the beginning . . . He may justifiably have thought of it as crowning his work" (Frank Kermode).
