Three octavo volumes; red, turquoise, and black cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on spines; dustjackets; 342; 339; 319pp. Men At Arms: previous owners name to front endpaper, with the spine gilt slightly dulled; Near Fine in a Near Fine, unclipped dustjacket, with some pinpoint rubbing to extremities. Officers and Gentlmen: Fine in a very Near Fine dustjacket, unclipped, with a few pinpoint rubs to spine ends, and faint trace of sunning to spine and rear panel. The End of the Battle: a review copy, with publisher's printed slip laid in; faint foxing to text edges, else Fine in a dustjacket that's Very Good+ or better; unclipped and unfaded, but with some dust-soil and foxing to rear panel, and evident to a lesser extent on verso. A uniformly handsome set. A trilogy of novels by Waugh which loosely parallel his experiences during World War II. Waugh received the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for the 'Men At Arms,' and the trilogy is considered by many critics to be the finest novel series of the Second World War. Interesting bibliographic note: while the review slip for 'The End Of The Battle' supplies a proposed publication date of January 10, 1962, we have seen a set of comb-bound proofs which give a publication date of November 6, 1961.

        Typed letter addressed to Dr. Joseph Klausner, signed by 44 personages, including Shaul Tchernichovsky, presented to him togehter with a statue of his wife. The statue is not here]

      Tel Aviv, Israel 1952 - Joseph Gedaliah Klausner (20 August 1874 - 27 October 1958), was a Jewish historian and professor of Hebrew Literature. He was the chief editor of the Encyclopedia Hebraica, was a candidate for president in the first Israeli presidential election in 1949, losing to Chaim Weizman, and the great uncle of Israeli author Amos Oz. Joseph Klausner was born in Olkeniki, Vilna Governorate in 1874. At the turn of the 20th century, the Klausners left Lithuania and settled in Odessa. Klausner was active in the city's scientific, literary and Zionist circles. He was a committed Zionist, and knew Theodore Herzl personally. In 1912, Klausner visited Palestine for the first time, and settled there in 1919. In 1925, he became a professor of Hebrew literature at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He specialized in the history of the Second Temple period. Although not an Orthodox Jew, he observed Sabbath and the dietary laws. He had a wide grasp of the Talmud and Midrashic literature. Joseph Klausner was a member of the circle of Russian Zionist political activists from Odessa, which included Ze'ev Jabotinsky and Menachem Ussishkin. Although not a party man, he supported Revisionist Zionism. In July 1929, Klausner established the Pro-Wailing Wall Committee to defend Jewish rights, and resolve problems over access and arrangements for worship at the Western Wall. His house in Talpiot neighborhood of Jerusalem was destroyed in the 1929 Palestine riots. Despite his Zionist ideology, Klausner had numerous disagreements with Chaim Weizmann. The two were candidates in the presidential election of 1949; Weizmann was declared the first President of Israel. Klausner earned his Ph.D. in Germany. One of his most influential books was about Jesus. The book Jesus of Nazareth, and its sequel, From Jesus to Paul, gained him fame. In it, Klausner described how Jesus was best understood as a Jew and Israelite who was trying to reform the religion, and died as a devout Jew. Herbert Danby, an Anglican priest, translated the work from Hebrew into English so that English scholars might avail themselves of the information. A number of clergymen, incensed at Danby for translating the book, demanded his recall from Jerusalem. Later in his career, he was given a chair in Jewish history. Amos Oz wrote about Klausner in his semi-autobiographical work A Tale of Love and Darkness. In both 1941 and 1949, Klausner was awarded the Bialik Prize for Jewish thought. In 1958, he was awarded the Israel Prize in Jewish studies. In 1982, in recognition of his scholarly achievements, the State of Israel issued a stamp with his picture on it.

        HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON: THE DECISIVE MOMENT

      (CARTIER-BRESSON, HENRI). Cartier-Bresson, Henri & Richard Simon. HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON: THE DECISIVE MOMENT. New York & Paris: Simon & Schuster & Editions Verve, 1952. First English Language Edition. Folio. Illustrated Boards. Photography Monograph. Good/No Jacket. np, 126 monochrome gravure illustrations. Cover Design by Henri Matisse. Designed by E. Teriade and Marguerite Lange. "The Decisive Moment" is one of the most famous books in the history of photography. Published in 1952 by Simon and Schuster, New York in collaboration with Editions Verve, Paris, it is an oversized folio that assembled Cartier-Bresson's best work from his early years adorned with a cut out paper collage cover by Henri Matisse especially designed for the book. "The Decisive Moment" and its images have since influenced generations of photographers. Its English title has defined the notion of the famous formal peak in which all elements in the photographic frame accumulate to form the perfect image. Paired with the artist's humanist viewpoint, Cartier-Bresson's photography has become part of the world's collective memory". An internally sound, handsome example of the 1952 first English language printing of Cartier-Bresson's timeless classic (cited on pages 208-209 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 154-155 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and pages 134-135 of "The Book of 101 Books") lacking its dust jacket showing some notable creasing to the front and rear pastedowns, chipping to the paper over the boards along the spine, abrasion to the tips and spine ends, and light overall soiling. A reproduction of the missing original caption booklet has been laid in. It has been priced accordingly.

        Reveling in his 'rediscovery' by the Europeans, a vindicated Frank Lloyd Wright forwards and signs a treatise extolling his influence on modern architecture to critic Lewis Mumford: "Lewis - this had to be said by Europe ..."

      Taliesin, Sept - Oct 1952. 8.5" x 11". "Typescript Signed ""Frank"", 6 pages, 8.5"" x 11"", [Taliesin, 1952], a typescript translation of an article by noted Italian architect Giancarlo de Carlo (1919-2005), entitled ""Wright and Europe,"" inscribed and signed at the top right of the first page by Wright to Lewis Mumford: ""Lewis - this had to be said by Europe- No body home to tell the truth - ? Frank"". Minor staple holes at top left, very minor marginal wear, else very fine.De Carlo's article, which originally appeared in the September-October issue of the Italian journal, Sele Arte, followed a major exhibition of Wright's work that was staged in Florence in June 1951 (and subsequently shown in Zurch, London, Paris, Munich, Bombay and Stockholm). Just prior to the exhibition's opening at the Strozzi Palace, Wright was honored with Italy's Star of Solidarity award. That exhibition proved instrumental in resurrecting Wright's reputation among European (and American) architects. (""F. L. Wright's Work Seen,"" New York Times, January 26, 1951, 19; ""Italy Decorates U.S. Architect,"" Ibid, June 25, 1951, 12)De Carlo opened noting that Wright was then ""the center of all the new interest that perpetrates unto the roots of the theoretical and practical structure of architecture. It is an unexpected 'come-back' that manifests itself with various symptoms. Great critics that for years had relegated 'the great old master' among the forerunners of modern architecture and had refused to consider his work among the most representative of contemporary art, have now recognized their mistake. Architects of the new generation as well as architects of the past one, already ripe, proved already by concluded experience are now converted to his doctrine without reserve as it by a sudden illumination. The official American architecture, that in 1933 had excluded him from the list of architects invited to do the world's fair exhibition at Chicago, today celebrates him with an uproar that often resents publicity; as if Frank Lloyd Wright has not existed ever since modern architecture exists.""As de Carlo highlights, Frank Lloyd Wright had become marginalized in the late 1910s and 1920s by proponents of what became known as the ""International Style,"" which Wright had denounced for years as an empty architectural philosophy. However, in the late 1940s and early 1950s his work came back into vogue?"an upward trend for Wright that continued long after his death in 1959. In 1991, the American Institute of Architects, an organization that Wright refused to join (belittling the organization ""a harbor of refuge for the incompetent""), recognized him as ""the greatest American architect of all-time."" WrIght, obviously proud of his vindication by his European critics, had the translation retyped at Taliesin?"and the typescript bears Wright's familiar spacing and his clean, sans serif typeface. Lewis Mumford and Frank Lloyd Wright first began corresponding in the 1920s, after Mumford had contributed an essay to the Dutch journal Wendingen in 1925 in which he discussed Wright's work as a continuation of a line of innovation begun by H. H. Richardson and Louis Sullivan as well as placing Wright in contrast to the European modernists like Le Corbusier. Mumford also characterized Wright's work as an ideal of form and expression ideally suited to the American landscape. An article along similar lines authored by Mumford for The American Mercury, elected a response from Wright in August 1926, in which the architect questioned the depth of Mumford's understanding of his work. A set of exchanges culminated in their first meeting, a luncheon at the Plaza Hotel in New York, during the winter of 1926-1927 that would begin a long and productive dialogue and friendship.This friendship, born of mutual respect and a love of argument, came under enormous strain in the years leading up the Second World War. Mumford, a liberal Democrat, viewed the rise of Nazism and Fascism anxiously?"as he detailed in numerous articles and two full-length works: Men Must Act (1939) and Faith For Living (1940) . Wright held a different view. His general distrust of empire compelled Wright to take a stand against American involvement in the escalating European conflict that struck many as merely isolationist?"a charge that the architect roundly rejected.The final straw for Mumford came in a broadsheet published by Wright: A Taliesin Square-Paper, subtitled as ""A nonpolitical voice from our democratic minority,"" which declared ""HITLER IS WINNING THIS WAR WITHOUT A NAVY. We are facing a new kind of warfare that the British Empire, owing to traditional faith in a great navy, cannot learn in time even if we furnished the equipment ... Our frontier is no longer England, nor in any sense, it is European. Our frontier is our own shores."" An infuriated Mumford shot back to Wright: ""You dishonor all the generous impulses you once ennobled ... Be silent! lest you bring upon yourself some greater shame."" To this, Wright retorted: ""There is no good Empire, there never was a just war."" True to his principles, Wright remained steadfastly opposed to the Second World War, and war in general. Escalating the feud, Mumford published his response to Wright in the interventionist journal, the New Leader. The two did not speak for over a decade. The postwar period saw a thaw in their relationship, and Mumford remained a great admirer of Wright's work, despite their personal and philosophical differences. And Wright, despite Mumford's public shaming of the architect in print, continued sending New Year's greetings, unanswered by Mumford. However in the spring of 1951, Wright forwarded Mumford a copy of Sixty Years of Living Architecture, inscribed: ""In spite of all, your old F. Ll. W."" The gesture moved Mumford to respond and the two began the process of reconciliation."

Sartre, der sich für die Begnadigung des zu lebenslänglichem Zuchthaus verurteilten Autors eingesetzt hat, und dessen Schrift "Saint Genet, comedien et martyr (1952)" wesentlich zum Verständnis von Genets Werk beitrug, sieht in Notre-Dame-des-fleurs einen der bedeutendsten Romane unseres Jahrhunderts. Nur in 350 numerierten Exemplaren für die Subskribenten gedruckt. Sehr schönes Exemplar in rotem Halbleder.
