        The Old Man and the Sea

      New York: Charles Scribner's & Sons, 1952. First edition of Hemingway's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and one of his most famous works. Octavo, bound in full navy morocco, marbled endpapers, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, gilt ruled to the front and rear panel. In fine condition. Upon its publication in 1952 by Charles Scribner's Sons, The Old Man and the Sea was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction the following year and was cited by the Nobel Committee as contributing to the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to Hemingway in 1954. The novel reinvigorated Hemingway's literary reputation. It initiated a reexamination of his entire body of work. The novel was received with such alacrity, that it restored many readers' confidence in Hemingway's capability as an author. Indeed, the publisher even wrote on an early dust jacket, calling the novel a "new classic," and it was compared by many critics to such revered works as William Faulkner's "The Bear" and Herman Melville's Moby-Dick.

He was educated at Balliol College, Oxford. He served as a Rabbi of Melbourne Hebrew Congregation in Australia from 1923-1937 and was influential in establishing the Zionist Federation of Australia in 1927.[1] He was evacuated from Dunkirk, and finished the War as Senior Jewish Chaplain aka Forces Rabbi. He became Chief Rabbi soon after the war at the age of 53 when he faced a difficult time due to the ending of the British Mandate in Palestine. He presided over the post-war expansion of the United Synagogue. A dignified man of great presence, he was regarded as a mellifluous preacher. He had impeccable English connections and was a freemason, rising to the senior appointment of 'Grand Chaplain' in the United Grand Lodge of England.[2] Through the Conference of European Rabbis, which he founded and led, Brodie took a significant part in rebuilding the religious life of European Jewry after the Holocaust. Brodie undertook a number of tours throughout the Commonwealth, and strengthened the community in a quiet but significant manner, although the closing years of his tenure were overshadowed by religious dispute. Brodie banned Rabbi Dr Louis Jacobs, who questioned the orthodox notion that the Bible had been written by the hand of God, from becoming principal of Jews' College. On his retirement, he was knighted "for services to British Jewry";[3] the first Chief Rabbi to be so honoured, although his predecessor was appointed to the restricted membership of the Order of the Companions of Honour. Rabbi Mordecai Kirshblum, (Rabbi Mordechai Kirshbaum) national president of the Religious Zionists of America, pointed out in his message that "there is a direct relationship between the exodus from Egypt, many thousands of years ago, and the present exodus of our fellow Jews from Arab countries.

Jan Bart was a Jewish American cantor, Yiddish entertainer and advocate for Israel. He was born Avram Sholom (Sol) Strauser in Sambor, Poland (now Ukraine) on January 26, 1919 and studied at the Warsaw Academy of Music and at the Berlin Conservatory. His family owned a bakery and as a young child, Bart sang on a stool to the customers. He immigrated to America with his family as a young boy in 1930 and became a cantor at the age of twelve, and continued to sing at Jewish religious services in numerous New York synagogues. He supported his family during the Great Depression by touring with Major Bowes (who hosted the American Idol of its day), whose contest Bart won by spontaneously playing piano at his studio. Following that tour, Bart sang and played music in nightclubs, cabarets and theaters across the U.S., including the Copacabana in Miami Beach, the Latin Quarter and the Palace Theater in New York and the Last Frontier in Las Vegas. In addition to cities throughout the U.S., Bart also toured in Canada, Europe, Australia and Israel. After he was rejected from the U.S. Army for medical reasons, he sold war bonds and sang for the troops to suppor the war effort during World War II. In 1941, Bart married singer Lillian Robbins. Their children are Judy Bart Kancigor - food writer and author of Cooking Jewish, and Gary Bart, who founded Weight Watchers and produced the movies In the Name of the People and Invincible. In the early 1950s he was asked to sing at the inaugural Israel Bonds meeting. He charmed the audience with his songs, stories and humor. By the time he died, he had raised more money for Israel Bonds than any other entertainer, having performed at more than 2,200 events over a two-decade period. Throughout his life, Bart conducted High Holiday services and Passover seders with his cantorial skills. He also entertained at countless weddings and bar/bat mitzvahs with his wife Lillian. In addition to Bart's illustrious entertaining career, he was a renowned collector of Israeli and Judaica stamps. He founded the Judaica Historical Philatelic Society that began with his own collection of Jewish people on postal stamps. Bart died in 1971 at age 51 from complications of diabetes. Rabbi Dr Yaacov Kopul Rosen 1913 - 1962 was an important anglo-Jewish rabbi and educationalist. Rabbi Dr Yaacov Kopul Rosen was born on 4 November 1913, in Notting Hill, London. He trained for the rabbinate in Etz Chaim Yeshiva in London, and in Mir Yeshiva in Lithuania. He was the rabbi of the Higher Crumpsall Synagogue in Manchester from 1938 until 1942. He became the Communal Rabbi of Glasgow in 1942 and in 1944 he was appointed the Principal Rabbi of the Federation of Synagogues in London. Rosen died of leukimia in early 1962 at the age of 48, leaving behind his wife, Bella, three sons, David, Michael and Jeremy and a baby daughter Angela (Ayelet). All three sons became Rabbis. n 1948 Rosen decided to leave the rabbinate to devote himself to the promotion of Jewish education. He and his wife, Bella, founded Carmel College an independent Jewish boarding school in Oxfordshire, UK. n 1979 Rabbi Rosen's second son, Rabbi Dr Michael (Mickey) Rosen, founded the Jewish educational organization, Yakar, in memory of his father. (YaKaR is both an acronym for Yaacov Kopul Rosen and means in Hebrew precious.) The stated goal of Yakar is to continue Kopul Rosen's ideals "of a Judaism based on knowledge of Torah, learning and vibrant spirituality that would at the same time be universal, non-denominational, tolerant and open to ideas and intellectual curiosity." David B. Hollander (1913-2009) was an American Rabbi, and president of The Rabbinical Council of America from 1954-1956, and at the time of his death, was the longest active Rabbi in America Rabbi Hollander was born in Hungary in 1913 to Rabbi Jonathan Benjamin and Rachel Hollander.[2] At age 9, he and his family, immigrated to NY. He received his Rabbinic ordination and law degree from Yeshiva Rabbeinu Yitzchok Elchonon (Yeshiva University).[2] In 1943 he was elected Rabbi of Mount Eden Jewish Center in The Bronx, and remained the Rabbi until its closing in 1980. When the synagogue closed he forfeited months of back-pay so the building would not be sold to a church. The building was demolished in 2005 and a new apartment building constructed in its place in 2006 (source: Save Our Synagogues.org) He was vice president of The Rabbinical Council of America, and in 1954 he was elected president.[2] He considered retiring when the Mount Eden Jewish Center closed, however, he was persuaded to continue in the rabbinate by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who told him "I am older than you are, and I am taking on additional burdens. By what right do you retire?"[3] With the help of Rabbi Paul M. Fleischman, he became the rabbi of the Hebrew Alliance of Brighton Beach synagogue at 2915 Brighton 6th Street, Brooklyn, NY.[4] In 2003, he became the oldest active pulpit rabbi and continued in that capacity until his death six years later.[3][5] He was a columnist for many decades, writing both in Yiddish in The Algemeiner Journal and in English In The Jewish Press. He was also a widely quoted, albeit sometimes controversial, speaker.[6] He did not leave behind any children. His wife of 61 years, Mrs. Fay Hollander,[7] died a little over a year after him. He was survived by a brother in Israel. In 1956 he made his first visit to the former Soviet Union,[2] bringing hundreds of prayer books and encouraging the Jews living under Soviet persecution there. he made 5 subsequent visits to Russia.[5] He was a regular speaker at Soviet Jewry rallies, and following a merger in the 1990s of the Hebrew Alliance of Brighton Beach with Friends of Refugees of Eastern Europe (F.R.E.E), the majority of his congregants were from FSU (Former Soviet Union) countries.

        Charlotte's Web

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1952 First edition, first printing with publisher's code "I-B" on the copyright page. Illustrated by Garth Williams. Original publisher's light tan cloth, lettered in blue and black, pictorial blue endpapers with a cobweb illustration in white; in the original pictorial dust jacket, with Garth's illustration of Fern holding Wilbur and looking at Charlotte to the front panel, lettered in black, blue, red and green. Fine book, with a former owner's inscription to the front free endpaper; unclipped dust jacket, with a closed tear to the top of the spine at the rear hinge, minor chips to the spine ends, short closed tears to the bottom edge of the rear panel, faint toning to the spine, rubbing to the folds. Overall, a very good and presentable copy. Charlotte's Web is a classic piece of children's literature that tells the story of a pig named Wilbur and how the farmer's daughter Fern and his spider friend Charlotte endeavor to save Wilbur from slaughter. Just as White's Stuart Little, the story of a mouse in a big city, appealed to urban American children, Charlotte's Web was geared towards rural children who grew up living on a farm. The text is illustrated with forty-seven black and white drawings by Garth Williams, who also illustrated Stuart Little. In both, the artist's crosshatching illustrations portrayed a jovial subject matter beloved by children with a level of detail that simultaneously garnered adult admirers. White drew his inspiration for Charlotte's Web from his own experience tending to a sick pig, which he outlined in a 1947 essay for the Atlantic Monthly.. Illus. by Garth Williams. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

        The Old Man and the Sea

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1952. Octavo. Original light blue calico-grain cloth, spine lettered in silver, author's name to front board in blind. With the pictorial dust jacket. An excellent uncommonly bright copy in the fresh jacket with negligible rubbing to spine ends. First edition, first printing (with Scribner's "A" to colophon) in the first issue jacket, printed in brown and making no mention of Hemingway's Nobel Prize. Previously, much has been made of the colour tint on the rear panel portrait on the dust jacket as an issue point. However, Grissom refutes Hanneman's assertion that the blue tinted photograph on the rear flap predates the olive tint, noting, "the identification of a first-printing jacket does not require identifying ambiguous rear-jacket colours: It is the brown printing on the flaps and rear panel that identify the first-printing Scribner's jacket".

        The Stars Like Dust.

      Doubleday & Company, Inc, Garden City, NY 1952 - First edition of Asimov's second science fiction novel. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by Isaac Asimov on the title page. Light offsetting to the endpapers, near fine in a very good dust jacket with light rubbing to the spine. The Stars Like Dust is the first book in Asimov's Galactic Empire series. "Science fiction on the larger scale is Isaac Asimov's specialty. The scene of his new book, a rousing adventure story of the remote future, is the Galaxy, which, with its hundreds of inhabited planets, has been taken over by a dictatorial race called, appropriately enough, the Tyranni. A small group of rebels wage a determined battle against the dictators, giving Mr. Asimov plenty of opportunities to plot those involved and subtle twists for which he is known. Its clear writing and excellent suspense make this book a welcome addition to the science fiction lists" (The New York Times). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        UMBERTO D. (1952)

      Rizzoli FIlms 1952 - Vintage original 16 x 11 ¾" (41 x 30 cm.) double weight matte finish photo, Italy. Carlo Battisti, Maria Pia Casilio, dir: Vittorio De Sica; Rizzoli. A magnificent and exceedingly rare large format photo, almost certainly made for use at the Cannes Film Festival. Umberto D. is a simple and heartbreaking film about an old man who lives in a small room with his dog, named Flike, and who simply does not have enough money to survive on (his tiny monthly pension is 18,000 lire, which might sound decent, but his rent was 10,000 lire, and his landlady just increased it). Surely the ultimate masterpiece of the post-WWII Italian neorealist movement. In this scene, Umberto sells one of his last few possessions, a treasured pocket watch, for a fraction of its value, because he owes back rent and is in danger of losing the small room where he has lived for thirty years. Light creasing, NEAR FINE

        Foundation and Empire

      New York: Gnome Press Publishers, 1952. First edition, first issue. Octavo, original red cloth with the publisher's imprint on the spine measuring 2.2 cm. Fine in a near fine bright dust jacket. Boldly signed by Isaac Asimov on the title page. Foundation was originally a series of eight short stories published in Astounding Magazine between May 1942 and January 1950. According to Asimov, the premise was based on ideas set forth in Edward Gibbon's History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, and was invented spontaneously on his way to meet with editor John W. Campbell, with whom he developed the concept. "The first four stories were collected, along with a new story taking place before the others, in a single volume published by Gnome Press in 1951 as Foundation. The remainder of the stories were published in pairs by Gnome as Foundation and Empire (1952) and Second Foundation (1953), resulting in the "Foundation Trilogy", as the series was known for decades" (Halmad, Spectra). The Foundation Trilogy was given a Hugo Award for the "Best All-Time Series" in 1966.

        The Day of the Triffids; Revolt of the Triffids

      Very Good/Very Good. FIRST APPEARANCE AND FIRST BOOK EDITION of Wyndham's science fiction masterpiece. With scarce review copy slip for the book edition. Housed together in magnificent custom box by noted book artist Sjoerd Hofstra. "John Wyndham's 1952 novel The Day of the Triffids is among the most enduring works of post-World War II British science fiction. In continuous print since its first serialized publication in the U.S. magazine Collier's, it has been translated into at least fifteen languages and adapted for a feature-length film (1962), a graphic novel and newspaper comics serialization (1975, 2004), a stage adaptation (2005), two high-profile BBC Television series (1981, 2009), and three BBC Radio and World Service productions (1957, 1968, 2001). The novel's eponymous man-eating plants are firmly rooted in the popular horticultural imaginary: a 'triffid' is an oversized, possible menacing interloper discovered in one's garden; genetlically-modified crops that threaten to contaminate established varieties are often referred to as 'triffids'… A generation of film enthusiasts that has never encountered the novel or its adaptations knows by heart that Janette Scott once fought a triffid that spits poison and kills…" (Terry Harpold, "The End Begins: John Wyndham's Zombie Cozy"). Time "Top 10 Post-Apocalyptic Books". The Day of the Triffids first appeared as Revolt of the Triffids in a somewhat abridged form in five consecutive issues of Collier's magazine (January - February, 1951), with dramatic color illustrations by Fred Banbery. The first American book edition then followed, preceding the first British edition. [The Day of the Triffids]. Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1951. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket; with review slip laid-in. Book near-fine; dust jacket with light wear at spine ends and corners. [Revolt of the Triffids]. Five issues of Collier's: January 6, 13, 20, 27, and February 3, 1951. New York: Crowell-Collier Publishing, 1951. Folio, original wrappers. Original address labels on front covers, general light wear. Both housed together in beautiful custom box.
