      - 1 lettre autographe signée 1 In-4 13/05/1952 bon André Breton répond à une sollicitation d'Antonini. «Je suis tout à fait confus d'avoir à vous manquer de parole. Toutes sortes d'obligations rigoureuses qui ont surgi depuis notre rencontre m'empêchent de disposer des quelques heures nécessaires pour répondre aux questions que vous aviez bien voulu me poser. Cela se complique du fait que je dois quitter Paris à la fin de ce mois, ce qui commence à se savoir et me vaut d'être assailli d'exigences diverses [.]». Il propose de reporter l'entretien à son retour. «Croyez qu'il m'en coûte vivement de vous décevoir [.]». Il ajoute son adresse en bas de la lettre, 42 rue Fontaine, Paris IXe. Ecrivain, fondateur du surréalisme. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        El Aleph.

      Buenos Aires: Editorial Losada S.A.,, 1952. Octavo. Original brown wrappers, spine and front wrapper lettered in black, red, and white, white vignette to front wrapper. With the glassine jacket. Extremities worn, wrappers and text block toned and occasionally foxed, a few pages creased. A very good copy. Second edition, first impression, from the library of Jorge Luis Borges's English-language translator, Norman Thomas di Giovanni (1933–2017), though unmarked as such. Produced in collaboration with Borges, di Giovanni's translations were the first concentrated efforts to translate the majority of Borges's works into English. The working relationship between di Giovanni and Borges was so close that di Giovanni was given a creative credit and a share of the royalties. The short story "El Aleph", first published in the literary magazine Sur in 1945, lent its name to this collection of short stories, which was first published in 1949. Four new stories were added to the collection for the second edition: "Abenjacán el Bojari, muerto en su laberinto", "Un leyenda arábiga", "La espera", and "El hombre en el umbral". Di Giovanni's English-language edition of El Aleph was first published in 1970 under the title The Aleph and Other Stories 1933-1969.

Albert Einstein developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). Einstein's work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. Einstein is best known in popular culture for his mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his "services to theoretical physics", in particular his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory (David Bodanis).

        [Photo Album]: Korean War-Era African-American U.S. Army Combat Engineer Battalion

      Hoechst, Germany, 1952. Very Good. Folio. Measuring 15" x 12". Spiral-bound red leather album. Contains 220 corner mounted black and white photographs and a few dozen laid-down ephemeral pieces and news clippings. Most of the photos range in size between 3.5" x 3.5" and 3.25" x 5.5", some with captions. Very good album with some edgewear, scuffs, and toning with near fine photographs.This album was created by Frank Hawthorne, a non-commissioned officer in B Company, 1279th Combat Engineer Battalion, a Michigan National Guard Unit. Although it proudly served as a one of the few entirely African-American units (including African-American officers) since its activation in 1950, it can trace its lineage back to the 131st Engineer Combat Regiment that served in World War Two and the 107th Engineer Battalion before that. The 1279th received combat training at Ft. Lewis Washington. However just as it was about to board a troop ship for Korea, the Army determined it would be inappropriate to send an all-black unit to war in light of President Truman's order to desegregate the military. Instead, the 1279th was re-routed to Germany in 1951 to support the United States' Cold War defense of Europe from Soviet aggression. The battalion was stationed at McNair Kaserne in Hoechts and built numerous bridges as part of the continuing effort to repair Germany's post-World War Two infrastructure. It was also very active in partnership activities with local communities and received the key to the city of Oberrifenburg for its volunteer efforts.Most of the images document leisure activities, although a number of photographs show the battalion engaged in training. There are images of the men relaxing on the troopship, sightseeing, and being out on the town. There are several terrific group shots including a small panorama as well as a large matted company photograph identifying some of the soldiers. Other images include the men hanging around camp, in fields with weapons and German children, a fair amount of shots of German women, men playing instruments, sports, and more. Ephemera include news clippings, dinner menus, a boxing card for bouts between the 1279th and the 36th Field Artillery group, a typescript duty roster and the program for a jazz performance in Frankfurt featuring Ella Fitzgerald.This is an exceptional visual record of one of the only---and one of the last---entirely African-American battalions to serve in the U.S. Army, and that also sheds light on the interaction between the army units and the German population in the early Cold War period.

Einstein's work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. Einstein is best known in popular culture for his mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his "services to theoretical physics", in particular his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory (David Bodanis).
