        [Original Color Linocut British Double Crown Poster for:] MURDER IN THE CATHEDRAL

      London: The Westminster Press [for:] The Academy Cinema, 1952. Large folio (30 x 20"; 76 x 51 cm). Original color linoleum cut, with text. Slightly curled from having been rolled (but never folded), very light use at edges, with a couple of tiny nicks and minor edge tears, otherwise very good to near fine. One of the iconic British film posters of its decade, with the central image executed as an original multi-color linocut by the eminent German-born British poster artist, Peter Strausfeld, for George Hoellering's film adaptation of Eliot's play. Strausfeld "was born in Cologne in 1910 and his engagement with expressionism, in the late 1920s and throughout the 1930s, defined his art. His life-long love of the woodcut and the linocut began here and his cinema posters are a natural reflection of this interest. As a result of his political and cultural opposition to the Nazis, Peter came to Brighton at the start of the Second World War. During internment in 1940-41 on the Isle of Man at the Onchan Internment Camp, he met the Austrian film producer George Hoellering. In 1947 Hoellering established the Academy Cinema in London and Peter became its poster designer. He held this job until his death in 1980. The Academy Cinema became the most important independent cinema in this country for the premiere exhibition of what are now recognised as the classic works of post-war world cinema ... In 1950-1, Peter worked with Hoellering on the film version of 'Murder in the Cathedral' and, as a result, Peter won the prize for best art direction at the Venice Film Festival in 1951. He also worked as an illustrator for the Folio Society. Peter taught at Brighton College of Art and later Brighton Polytechnic in the Department of Graphics from 1959 to 1980" - University of Brighton, Graphic Arts Hall of Fame (online). This poster has been frequently reproduced in facsimile in later years; this original bears the determinative imprint of the Westminster Press, as well as the obvious qualitative features of the original linocut that are absent from the reproductions. Extra shipping.

        Photo Album - RARE Large Format Photos of Young Monarchs - Queen Elizabeth II & Prince Phillip - African Tour

      Uganda, 1952. Kenya, Uganda, 1952-1954. Set of 45 large format, original gelatin silver print photographs taken in Nairobi, Jinja, Mombasa, and on journeys in between, by George Rodger and his partners in Magnum Photos, featuring rare photographs of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip on their tour to Africa. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 19 x 11 cm, and the largest measuring approximately 27 x 23 cm. Thirty-two (32) are mounted onto heavy cardstock measuring between 25 x 20 and 34,5 x 29 cm. The lot contained in an archival folder for protection. Mounts slightly bowed otherwise very good condition, rare and pleasing images. The present set of rare professional photographs forms a lovely visual chronicle of Queen Elizabeth II on her earliest visits to Kenya (1952) and Uganda (1954), the second journey being when she learned of her father's death and subsequently became Queen of England. In 1952 Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip flew to Nairobi. Only five days later, while on this trip, Elizabeth II became Queen of the Commonwealth upon the death of her father, King George VI, 6 February 1952. Upon landing in Nairobi on the 1st of February, the royal couple was greeted by the Governor of Kenya, Sir Philip Mitchell, then driven to Government House where they attended a garden party. Then still 'Princess' Elizabeth, she visited the New Stanley Hotel as part of the world tour, being there the day before the death of her father, King George VI, and her subsequent succession as Queen of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. The following day they attended a civic luncheon and visited Nairobi National Park. That evening they stayed at the Royal Sagana lodge, which was a wedding gift from the Kenyan Government. In this set, Elizabeth II is seen at the New Stanley Hotel in Nairobi, peering out from a balcony towards Woolworth's department store and a fairly busy street. Other city scenes are taken in Nairobi including the Ahmed Omar produce market and a view of Kenyatta Avenue (formerly Delamere Ave) where we faintly see the shop signage of Ahmed Brothers. Especially scarce is a photograph of the original Royal Sagana fishing lodge, with another showing its garden style entrance. It was at this lodge that Elizabeth learned of her father's death. Lovely coastal scene photographs also show fishing boats just off the shore. While at Sagana, Philip took the call from the princess's secretary who was staying at the Outspan Hotel. Philip took his wife for a walk along the trout stream by the lodge and told her the bad news. The king had been ill for some time, and in preparation for this untimely scenario, Elizabeth had packed mourning clothes in her suitcase. [The Sagana lodge was destroyed in the Mau Mau Uprising and has since been replaced by another.] The collection further features views from Mombasa including Fort Jesus, a street scene from Old Town with a Hindu Temple in the background, as well as two close-up photographs of the same temple. As part of a six month world tour (November 1953 to May 1954), H.M. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, visited Uganda 28-30 April 1954. They arrived at Entebbe near Kampala by air, where they were greeted by Sir George Erskine. From there they travelled to Jinja. At Jinja, Queen Elizabeth presented the colours and inspected the guard, then addressed the 4th Uganda Battalion, Kings African Rifles. She met the Chaplains and was then escorted to her car by General Sir Erskine. The couple also stopped at Katunguru, where they were welcomed by Mugabi Gasyonga II of Ankole. [Mugabe or Omugabe of Ankole is the title given to the monarch of the former Kingdom of Ankole in Uganda, which was abolished in 1967.] Four photographs illustrate a welcoming ceremony and official visit to the village of Kikorongo, Elizabeth being seen in three of these, Philip in two. [Kikorongo is situated between Kampala and what is now Queen Elizabeth National Park]. One of the photographs captures Governor of Kenya Sir Evelyn Baring with the Kabaka (King) of Buganda, Matesa II, together inspecting the Guard of Honour. [Major General Sir Edward Frederick William David Walugembe Mutebi Luwangula Muteesa II KBE (1924-1969) was Kabaka of the Kingdom of Buganda from 22 November 1939 until his death. He was the thirty-fifth Kabaka of Buganda and the first President of Uganda. Representing Africa's tribal culture and wild kingdom, photographs show round huts with peaked straw roofs, quaint villages, and a traditional tribal dance. A series of big game photographs included herein may have been taken at Kazinga National Park which in 1954 was renamed to Queen Elizabeth National Park to commemorate the queen's visit to Uganda. [The park was officially established in 1952 and formerly known as Ruwenzori Park.] Finally, the photographer himself, George Rodger, is seen as a spectator at a lively outdoor game of tug-of-war. African men of business and military are cheering on a winner. In 1947, Rodger became a founding member of Magnum Photos. Over the next thirty years, he worked as a freelance photographer, taking on many expeditions and assignments to photograph the people, landscape and nature of African nations. Magnum photographers has chronicled Queen Elizabeth's life from her first official visit to Jamaica in 1953 to the present day, including her visits to New York, Holland, Ghana after independence, the Silver Jubilee of 1977, and the Royal weddings and funerals. George Rodger (1908-1995) was a British photojournalist, famed for his work in Africa, and also for photographing the mass deaths at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at the end of the Second World War. In 1947, Rodger became a founding member of Magnum Photos. Over the next thirty years, he worked as a freelance photographer, taking on many expeditions and assignments to photograph the people, landscape and nature of African nations. In 1949 Rodger was on a two-year journey across Africa to record the tribes whose lives had not yet been influenced by colonialism, and to produce a series of photographs that gave insight into the lifestyle and habits of these unfamiliar people. His work there earned him international fame. In that same year, his series on the Nuba group was published in Weekly Illustrated, followed by a censored version (showing no genitals or blood) in National Geographic in 1951. In 1955, Rodger published his book of photographs, 'Village des Noubas', with his own accompanying text. The powerful images, especially of the native wrestling matches, became world renowned. Much of Rodger's photojournalism in Africa was published in National Geographic as well as other magazines and newspapers. A retrospective exhibition of Rodger's work was held at Imperial War Museum North in 2008. Magnum Photos is an international photographic cooperative owned by its photographer-members, one of the first to be owned and administered entirely by members. Its founders were Robert Capa, George Rodger, David "Chim" Seymour, Henri Cartier-Bresson, William Vandivert (all photographers), Rita Vandivert and Maria Eisner. Many of Elizabeth's official tours were undertaken on the Royal Yacht Britannia. It was launched by the Queen on April 16, 1953 and was commissioned for service on January 7,1954. Britannia was first used by Elizabeth when she embarked with the Duke of Edinburgh on May 1,1954 at Tobruk for the final stage of their Commonwealth Tour returning to the Pool of London. The last time Elizabeth was on board for an official visit was on August 9, 1997 for a visit to Arran. It was de-commissioned in December 1997. During this time, Britannia travelled more than a million miles on Royal and official duties. Queen Elizabeth's first Commonwealth tour began on November 24, 1953, and included visits to Bermuda, Jamaica, Panama, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Australia, the Cocos Islands, Ceylon, Aden, Uganda, Libya, Malta and Gibraltar. The total distance covered was 70,196km. . Very Good.

        La Croisade De Lee Gordon [Lonely Crusade]

      Paris: Correa, 1952. First French Edition, and the first edition to appear with an introduction by Himes' compatriot Richard Wright. Wrappered issue. Near Fine in a Very Good plus dust jacket, with only a few small chips to note. The striking jacket design comically depicts the interracial tension of the novel's protagonist in a way that would likely never have been allowed by Himes' American publisher, Knopf, who first issued the book in 1947. The second of two novels written by Himes during his tenure as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (the other was "If He Hollers Let Him Go"), both dealing with the influx of the black population into that city as a result of the growing defense industry.

        The Sword of Honour Trilogy: Men at Arms, Officers and Gentlemen, and Unconditional Surrender

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1952, 55 and 61., 1952. First Editions. 3 volumes. Octavo. Bound in recent blue calf over marbled blue paper boards, with raised bands and gilt titles to spine; top edges tinted blue. With slipcase, bound in blue cloth. Bindings show extremely well, with negligible signs of shelfwear; vol three top edge somewhat faded. Internally clean and free from spotting; vol one has minor water staining to top and bottom edges, but this does not penetrate the text block. A very handsome set. In this trilogy of novels, we follow Guy Crouchback through the course of the Second World War. Somewhat resembling Waugh's own wartime experiences, for instance the Dakar expedition, the novels show Waugh at the height of his writing powers, scathingly satirical on the bureaucracy of modern warfare and earnestly charming on role and value of tradition - including Roman Catholicism.

        Walt Disney's Peter Pan (Early promotional book, signed by layout artist Ken Anderson and animation director Ward Kimball)

      Los Angeles: Walt Disney Productions, 1952. An early promotional book, complete with fully animated black-and-white storyboards, for the classic 1953 animated film, "Peter Pan," based on the characters created by J.M. Barrie in 1902, and in particular Barrie's stage version of the Peter Pan story, "Peter Pan, The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up." One of a reported 50 copies printed, this example SIGNED by layout artist Ken Anderson on the title page and legendary animation director Ward Kimball next to an interior still of Peter Pan smoking a peace pipe with an Indian chief. Ward's inscription makes reference to the scene in the film where the Indian chief greets Peter and the children, and reads: "Hello! It says here / Ward Kimball / Class of '34." Kimball was one of Disney's most famous founding animators, known collectively as the "Nine Old Men." He was called a genius by Walt Disney in Disney's autobiography, and created many of Disney's most famous animated characters, including the Crows in "Dumbo," Faline from "Bambi," Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat from "Alice in Wonderland," the Mice and Lucifer the Cat from "Cinderella," and Jiminy Cricket from "Pinocchio." Anderson was a major contributor to many of Disney's greatest animated films, including "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," "Pinocchio," "One Hundred and One Dalmatians," and "The Jungle Book." "Peter Pan" was the last of the many classic Disney films produced by RKO prior to Disney forming his own production company in 1953. Cream studio wrappers, side-stitched and quarter-bound in white cloth. 50 leaves, non-numbered, mimeograph, with numerous illustrated animation stills throughout. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus with light soil.

FIRST & ONLY EDITION OF 150 COPIES. THE COMPLETE WORK, WITH ALL SAMPLES AND EXAMPLES: . This is a complete copy in the original red cloth Chitsu folding case with bone clasps, as issued. *** . A most stunning and valuable example of Japanese hand-made Washi paper sample book. This famous work was made just after World War II, while Thomas Tindale was working in Japan. He gathered the samples & specimens of Washi paper from the paper-makers. He also urged the paper-makers to participate in the compilation of the most ambitious, definitive and comprehensive single book documenting Japan's celebrated paper makers, papermaking villages and sample papers. . Hand-made paper making was at that time, in 1948-1950, a vanishing and a dying art. The number of handmade paper makers have decreased dramatically since publication of this great book. So many of the makers have already passed away, and were not followed by any disciple, therefore their technique of papermaking has been vanishing since that time. *** FOREWORD BY DARD HUNTER: The forward was contributed by Dard Hunter, the world's foremost expert and authority on handmade papers. This is the most ambitious and complete post-World War II work on Japanese papers including hundreds of fine samples beginning with the earliest a Komashi from 740 A.D., down to the latest done in 1923. It traces the history of paper making throughout Japan, it lists the various papermaking villages, their handmade paper makers, methods, materials used and applications and techniques. *** WATERMARK COLLECTION: With a fantastic collection of twenty especially executed watermarked papers with an accompanying pamphlet, 27 x 33 cm., giving the names of each engraving, engraver's name and title of the image. The watermark subject titles are: Sailboat by Moonlight; Water Lilies; Morning Glories; Okesa Odori [dancing girl]; Mountains Autumn Mist; Grapes; Fujiyama; Chrysanthemum; Ch'ao Fu Leading His Ox and several others with exceptionally fine, intricate and stunningly beautiful designs. *** STENCIL COLLECTION BY SOETSU YANAGI: The eight endpaper stencil illustrations showing the process of hand-made paper making and book covers were all designed and made especially by hand for this book by Keisuke Serizawa using his stencil or "Kataezome" technique. Serizawa was designated as a National Living Treasurer by the Japanese government and was widely acclaimed as Japan's most celebrated folk-artist. He worked in the "Sosaku" group of "Creative" people, along with Soetsu Yanagi were his close friends and fellow artists: Hamada Shoji, Bernard Leach and several others. *** CONTENTS, BINDING: Stitch stitch-bound titles: 1. THE HAND MADE PAPERS OF JAPAN 2. THE SEKI COLLECTION 3. THE CONTEMPORARY COLLECTION. Folding Chitsu with ivory pegs: THE WATERMARK COLLECTION. All of the above are bound in the original stencil printed covers by Soetsu Yanagi. * *** Volume I: THE HANDMADE PAPERS OF JAPAN: Introduction by Dard Hunter, bibliographical guide by Bunsho Jugaku, Japan's foremost expert and author on Japanese Washi [hand-made papers].

The text also includes a facsimile hand-colored reproduction with English translation of the Japanese classic on Washi, KAMI-SUKI TAIGA. 1784, the oldest Japanese illustrated work on papermaking. This is then translated into English by Kinichiro Kanazashi, with title: GENERAL OUTLINE OF PAPERMAKING, translated into English by Kinichiro Kanazashi. GENERAL OUTLINE OF PAPERMAKING]. .

Part II: PROCESSED PAPERS, includes authentic samples from 1688 onwards, colored papers, those used for Japanese books, book covers and heavy textured papers such as Chirimen-gami &c. Ending with the index. . The work continues with 187 authentic mounted specimens of paper from his personal collection. These date from Nara Period [740-793] to 1923. Each paper has been carefully authenticated, with a complete description, type, method of manufacture noted. . Final essay: PAPERMAKING MAPS OF OLD AND NEW JAPAN: two large folding black outline maps of Japan shows the old "Kuni" or provinces or Ken. *** Volume III: THE CONTEMPORARY COLLECTION: Foreword by Takema Morizawa, President of Japanese Handmade Paper Assn.

Gampi 2. Kozo 3 Kuwa 4. Mitsumata 5. Taima *** The inside of the Chitsu folding cloth case are watermarked papers with Tindale's logo. Other volumes use the Yanagi stencil illustrated papers. **** * LIMITED EDITION OF 150 COPIES: The controversy about the actual number of copies published is cleared up once and for all. . A. This book also contains a copy of the original Prospectus, and a copy of a June 9, 1977 letter to us from Charles E. Tuttle Co., the publisher. They state the LIMITATION of the EDITION was only 150 COPIES, which is NOT cited in the book. This book has been commonly catalogued as being limited to 250 copies, this is clearly incorrect. . B. Additionally, a copy of a letter to us dated 3 December, 1979 from the author Thomas K. Tindale stated the book was originally planned to be published in a LIMITED EDITION of 300 copies, however, due to a lack of ample old paper specimens the edition was [would be] published in an edition of 250 copies only. This again turned out to be incorrect and the book was finally published in a LIMITED EDITION of 150 copies only. Per the above paragraph "A." The final LIMITED EDITION of 150 only copies is substantiated by the letter from the publisher. . C. We knew Mr. Tindale quite well and understood that that he actually meant to say "150" copies rather than "250 copies" which is supported by the publisher's letter and prospectus. Copies of the three items cited above accompany this copy of the book. *** By and large, the most impressive work on Japanese Washi hand-made paper done in the first half of the 20th century. This marvelous reference is a veritable museum of hand-made paper and a distinguished history of this unique craft. It a classic and the known to be the most celebrated premier work on the subject. *** THOMAS K. TINDALE Tindale was an American, employed as an advisor to the Japanese Civil Service immediately after the end of World War II. He was assisted by Yoshikuni Seki, the celebrated and noted Japanese paper-making scholar and historian. The work was co-authored by his wife, Harriet R. Tindale. *** CONDITION: This is an excellent copy, it is a bit rubbed at hinges, else the contents are unopened, in the original tissue paper as issued by the publisher. *** * .

        BUDDHIST SERMONS ON CHRISTIAN TEXTS.

      [Tokyo] 1952, Kokudosha. Stiff brown wrs. 95p., 3-page color. fold out map, texts in English & Japanese, 12.5 x 18 cm.,bit. of the usual paper toning, else clean & solid, with dj.. THE AUTHOR'S SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY RARE FIRST EDITION. "An interpretation of Christian intuitions by the Mahayana concepts, and NOT visa-versa,is that Buddhism, in China and Japan, has realized how inexpressive, how crude, how treach- erous words are. Only a mind free of intellectual bondage, yet exacly conscious of what it is doing in overstepping the laws of thought is capable of holding fast to conflicting facts, of grasping the inner essence of paradox...." Very cool stuff ! * Per the dust jacket on ZEN AND ZEN CLASSICS, this title was supposed to be volume 8 of the set. While that may be correct, this work predates that set by 8 years for the first edition ! This title was never issued as part of ZEN AND ZEN CLASSICS even though its content should be kept together with that set. It does complete the set as this was Blyth's choice. **** A very well written, readable set of books. The celebrated Zen master D.T. Suzuki described Blyth as "one of the most eminent exponents of Japanese culture." **** ZEN AND HAIKU: Blyth's studies on Haiku, Japanese humor and Zen are "unique contributions towards East-West understanding." Blyth lived & worked in the east 40 years, until his death in 1964. The history of Zen is the history of moments. It cannot be, like the history of ideas, or even the history of the freedom of thought, an account of development, systematization, criticism, modification, replacement and so forth. Zen seems to become deeper sometimes, shallower, broader, narrower sometimes, but there is no progress of the ordinary kind. It is a history only in the sense of being a list of names of great men in the attainment of great and so forth. Zen seems to become deeper sometimes, shallower, broader, narrower sometimes, but there is no progress of the ordinary kind. It is a history only in the sense of being a list of names of great men in the attainment of great Buddha-hood. * BLYTH'S CONTRIBUTION: Blyth lived and worked in the East for forty years, until his death in 1964 at the age of sixty-six. From the time of his internment in Japan during World War II, Blyth wrote assiduously. In the 1950's, his "ZEN IN ENGLISH LITERATURE" and "ORIENTAL CLASSICS" and "HAIKU" reached enthusiastic readers in America and Europe. Aldous Huxley describes Blyth's work as "illuminating." As William J. Higginson writes in his "HAIKU HANDBOOK," thanks to Blyth "a new interest in Japanese Haiku began to grow among poets of the immediate post World War II generation." ... Blyth's Contribution to cross-cultural understanding was manifold. In 1945, Blyth assumed a post as professor of English at Tokyo's Gakushuin University, the former Peers' School. For almost twenty years he tutored Crown Prince Akihito, the present Emperor. Blyth played a leading role in Emperor Hirohito's historical declaration of January 1, 1946, that he was a human being rather than a god. Blyth edited numerous writings from English and American literature, making them available to avid Japanese readers. **** BIBLIOGRAPHY: Please inquire with us to see which of the below other titles by Blyth are in stock. * Zen in English Literature and Oriental Classics, Hokuseido Press, 1942 * Haiku, 1949-1952, in four volumes: Vol.1: Eastern Culture.

        East of Eden (Signed Limited Edition)

      The Viking Press, New York 1952 - A Very Good copy (only) of the book, lacking the glassine and slipcase. The book spine titling has almost completely flaked off and the closed page block is spotted on the top and fore-edges. Previous owner's name and date written on the final page, otherwise fairly tidy internally. One of 1500 copies of the signed, limited edition, 750 of which were for sale. Steinbeck's classic tale of the Trask and Hamilton families set in the Salinas Valley. The Nobel Prize winning writer considered this his greatest work and, in fact, a young Steinbeck actually makes a small appearance in the novel as a character. East of Eden was a bestseller and became extremely popular upon its release. Steinbeck wrote a friend: "I am getting flocks of letters [ . . .] People write as though it were their book." The popularity of the book would undergo a resurgence in 2003, when it was an Oprah's Book Club pick. More famously, the book has been adapted into a 1955 film, directed by Elia Kazan and featuring James Dean in one of his few starring roles. The movie appears on AFI's list of the "Top 400 American Films." "But no one can doubt its merits as the work of a great storyteller. It compels and holds the reader's fascinated attention from the first chapter to the last." (Contemporary review in the Washington Post). Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
