        Carnival in Flanders (Original program from the 1953 play)

      N.p., N.p. 1953 - Original program for the notorious Broadway flop, "Carnival in Flanders." An interesting and rare piece documenting a directorial and writing effort from the strange final years of Sturges' career. The program was printed well prior to Sturges' arrival to the production--as a result, though the musical was never staged prior to his involvement, it still credits the original writers (George Oppenheimer, Herbert Fields) and director (Bretaigne Windust).A quite forgotten musical with a troubled production and a rapid demise. When the musical, an adaptation of the classic French film, "La Kermesse Héroïque" (1934), was first conceived, Harold Arlen was approached to write the score, but the task ultimately fell to Van Heusen and Burke. Bing Crosby provided much of the financing for the production and had great faith in the songwriting team, who had written several of his hits (despite the fact that their previous theatrical collaboration, "Nellie Bly" (1946), had been a critical and commercial flop). George Oppenheimer, one of the book's original co-writers, withdrew from the project during pre-Broadway tryouts in Philadelphia, and Dorothy Fields joined her brother Herbert to help with rewrites. Eventually all their work was discarded by Preston Sturges, who replaced Bretaigne Windust as director and completely reworked the book before the show reached California for a series of stagings by light opera companies prior to the New York City opening. Choreographer Jack Cole was replaced by Helen Tamiris, and several cast changes were made before the troubled production finally opened on Broadway."Carnival in Flanders" opened on September 8, 1953 at the New Century Theatre, where it ran for only six performances. The cast included John Raitt, Dolores Gray, and Roy Roberts. Critics were enchanted by Oliver Smith's sets and Lucinda Ballard's costumes, inspired by Brueghel paintings, and Gray's lively performance, but universally panned every other aspect of the production. In his review for The New York Times, Brooks Atkinson wrote "As an actress she [Dolores Gray] is authoritative enough to bring down the house with some of the maudlin songs.In the version prepared for the stage by Preston Sturges it is laborious and banal. As usual, the theatre has lavished a lot of wealth and talent on this hokum. Lucinda Ballard has dressed everybody to the nines. Although Oliver Smith's scenery is cluttered and rather desperate, there is certainly a lot of it."Ironically, this nearly forgotten musical is the source for the well loved Van Heusen-Burke standard "Here's That Rainy Day."Saddle stitched, illustrated card wrappers. 16 pages, 9 x 12 inches. Faint vertical crease to the front wrapper, light rubbing to wrappers, overall easily Very Good plus. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [On the Waterfront, here titled:] Waterfront

      [New York], 1953. 4to. Original shooting script. [3], 111 pp. numbered through 109, with the insertion of pages 22A and 31A. Original typed title-page, and two styles of mechanical reproduction. Original printed wrappers closed with three contemporary brass clasps (wrappers with some chipping and toning at edges); cloth folding case. PRODUCTION MANAGER GEORGE JUSTIN'S COPY: signed in red pencil by him on the title, and annotated throughout in pencil. Justin numbers each of the shots, crosses out and adds dialogue and production notes throughout. 'On the Waterfront' was a critical and commercial success and received twelve Academy Award nominations, winning eight, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Marlon Brando, Best Supporting Actress for Eva Marie Saint, and Best Director for Elia Kazan. Considered Kazan's response to those who labelled him a Communist before the House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1952, the first screenplay was written by Kazan's friend and collaborator Arthur Miller. It was originally titled 'The Hook', and Harry Cohn at Columbia Pictures agreed to make the film if the corrupt union officials in the early version were changed to Communists. Miller refused, in part because he did not like it that Kazan gave friendly testimony before the HUAC. It was then that Kazan turned to Budd Schulberg. Studio rejections from Darryl F. Zanuck lead them to independent producer Sam Spiegel and Columbia Pictures. Schulberg's script went through numerous changes. In early versions, for instance, Terry Malloy was not an ex-pug dockworker, but an investigative reporter, and an older, divorced man. In 1937, George Justin (1916-2008) had been the test director for George Cukor on casting 'Gone With the Wind.' His first credit as Producer or Production Executive was 'On the Waterfront', and he continued producing movies and television until 1994. He worked again with Kazan on 'A Face in the Crowd', made three films with Sidney Lumet, and was part of the production team for 'The Graduate' and '12 Angry Men.' This copy of his personal shooting script for one of the undisputed classics of American cinema offers a unique insight into the making of film.

        Korean War-Era Navy Letters

      New Jersey, Japan. 1953 - 1954. An intriguing collection of 403 letters between Bayonne, New Jersey native, Alton L. Lattig and his fiance, Marion Lynde during his tour with the Navy at the end of the Korean war. All letters are in envelopes and near fine with slight curling and tears from opening. Also included are two newsletters and 41 photographs.Alton Lattig, who refers to himself as "Mike" throughout his correspondence, was on active duty with the U.S. Navy from 1953 until 1954. He was stationed on the U.S. Tarawa (CVA-40) which had just been recommissioned as an attack aircraft carrier in response to the Korean War. They embarked on a mission that took them from Gibraltar to the Asiatic over the course of two years. "Arrived safely last night at 11:45 and sure hated to come back aboard this pig-iron tub, but as the saying goes you can't fight city hall." They were sent as part of the replacement for the 2nd and 6th Navy fleets on a tour that took them to Gibraltar, Spain, Japan, Australia, and Korea before returning to Pearl Harbor and home. "We are now 1,671 miles from "Rock of Gibraltar" and we are due to pull in there on the morning of the 23rd and will remain a couple of days ad pull out for Algiers...will let you know as we go along from port to port." When granted shore leave they participated in local activities, "I went to another bull fight this afternoon and it was really better than the other one I saw, there was more slaughtering in the fights today." Their duties sent them on missions that mainly involved refueling and replenishing the Air Force and other Navy vessels. "Well we just finished refueling a destroyer around 6:15...we were supposed to do 2 cans but it got sort of late and they have flight operations again tonight so we have to get up early in the morning and refuel the other one."Shortly after enlisting Lattig was scheduled to take his test to raise higher in rank; "Tomorrow morning I am taking a test for 3rd class Petty Officer and sure hope I make it this time. I passed it last time but the quota was filled and they wouldn't give it to me...with a little luck I will make it. It not only means more money but I won't have to take too much bossing around I will be able to boss people around a little." With a young wife at home the extra money from the position was useful and appreciated. It was also good for the card games that kept the men occupied. "I am going to keep playing as long as I win, but as soon as my luck starts running out I am going to quit, I know it's an awful thing to gamble but what else have we to do here in the middle of nowhere."On April 7, 1954 while stationed in Japan he writes, "Hon, I don't know if I mentioned in one of my letters when we were operating or not, but we were operating with the Oriskany when that plane caught fire we watched it from the flight deck. (The clipping you sent) that is the way we have some of our planes come in and lose altitude too fast and crack up, very very seldom does any pilot get hurt too bad but some of them luck isn't with them.""We are in the South China Sea heading for Japan and we will pull into Japan on the 15th instead of 14th (Valentine's Day) I sure wish it were in the U.S....but we have 121 days to go over here before we start back home for the good old U.S.A." This was in February of 1954, a few months before they would head home. They spent roughly 2 years repairing and refueling aircraft at the end of the war. After the armistice they were sent to clean up after the war and became a roaming sea airbase. By September on 1954 they arrived safely on the shores of California.Along with the letters Lattig sent back two "Tradewinds" newsletters from his ship with the caption, "Send me home" printed above the address. They include Navy related articles, photos of the crew, and each one provides a Hollywood starlet on the last page. March 1, 1954 has Lizabeth Scott posing on a beach while May 1, 1954 has Lucy Marlow in fishnets dubbed, "the saucy charmer." He also kept photographs of his shipmates posing around the barracks, his fiance, and some of a marriage, possibly his own after the war. One particularly nice photo is of a bunch of sailors around table of drinks presumably laying on the charm.An extensive collection of letters detailing the life of a sailor after a short and unwarranted war which would lay the ground work for Vietnam.List:-403 handwritten letters in envelope-U.S.S.

      - ROJANKOVSKY,FEODOR. ORIGINAL ART: GIANT GOLDEN BOOK OF CAT STORIES. Offered here are 2 fine original watercolors that appear on pp. 65 and 27 of The Giant Book Of Cat Stories published by Golden Books in 1953. The 2 images are attractively mounted, matted and framed to 22 inches wide x 17" high. They could be separated and framed individually. The first image is a great nighttime scene with a large black cat with white paws in the foreground. An owl is flying above him and there is a house and much greenery in the background. It measures 11" high x 8", with 2 corners slightly trimmed and an unpainted area where text would be. The second image (on p. 27) is of a cat sticking its head out of a large wicker basket that is sitting outside in the grass at night with stars in the sky. The image measures 5 1/2" high x 4 1/2". Rojankovsky was a Russian emigre artist who became an important illustrator of children's books. He illustrated the Domino Press' landmark Daniel Boone, and won the Caldecott Award in 1956 for Frog Went A'Courtin. Original art by Rojan rarely appears on the market and these are great images.

        The Weeping and the Laughter: A Chapter of Autobiography.

      First edition; 8vo; original cloth boards and dust jacket. This is the first volume of the author's autobiography. Inscribed on the front free endpaper to Anna Gawsworth by the author using his Redonda title "To my Queen Anna with love, respectfully Ragusa (J. Maclaren-Ross) on his fiftieth birthday 7-7-62." On the front paste down is the bookplate of John Gawsworth, Realm of Redonda. John Gawsorth was the pseudonym of Terence Ian Fytton Armstrong (1912-70), poet, writer and bibliographer, who was well known in Bohemian circles in the 1940s. He inherited the island of Redonda and appointed himself King Juan I. He bestowed secular and ecclesiastical titles on his friends. Among the recipients were Victor Gollancz, Henry Miller and Dylan Thomas. Julian Maclaren-Ross was created Duke of Ragusa in 1949, and promoted to Grand Duke, on Tuesday July 7th 1958, his 46th birthday. Gawsworth adds a further inscription: Anna's Own Copy to Sneeze On Love Johnny (Julian's "King")". Maclaren-Ross has also inscribed the front dust jacket flap " Portrait of my Father on Book Jacket by Harry Jonas." The original jacket blurb states that the narrator sees himself more than thirty years ago, a small boy bewildered and lonely in a world encompassed by adults, and forced in self defence to create his own from fiction and the cinema-serials of the day. A fine copy in a very good dust jacket, with wear to the extremities.

        Autograph letter signed. Boat House, Laughharne, Carmarhenshire, 15. VII. 1953.

      1953. 8vo. ¾ p. "Dear Leslie Collier, Apologies. I was in America when you came to Carmarthen, that couldn't be helped. But I've been back a month now, and I haven't written to say how sorry I was to have missed you and how I hope, whenever you're next in this part, you'll come along and have drinks. No letters were forwarded when I was away, so unfortunately, I couldn't let you know; but I could have written much sooner than this. My only excuse is that I have been busy about the country ever since I returned; and that's a poor excuse, I know. My wife also wants to apologise for not having seen you when you were down. Anyway, I shall look forward. Sincerely yours, Dylan Thomas". - A few light stains, and some mounting remnants on the verso, otherwise very fine. From the collection of Diana Herzog.

        International Economics: Theory and Policy: AND International Economics Update Booklet [Englisch] von Paul R. Krugman (Autor), Maurice Obstfeld (Autor)

      Addison-Wesley Longman, Amsterdam, 1953. International Economics, the best-selling textbook in the field, is written by two of the world's preeminent economists. Both the real trade portion of the book and the monetary portion are divided into a core of chapters focused on theory, followed by chapters applying the theory to major policy questions, past and current. The Sixth Edition has been throughly revised to reflect the changes of today's global economic landscape, including the unprecedented expansion of globalization, the increasingly crucial nature of international economic relations, the gains from trade, and recent anti-globalization controversies such as the continuing debate over the optimal level of trade. Consistent with previous editions, the text presents an integrated treatment of the Ricardian model, specific factors, factor endowments, and imperfect competition models of trade, along with in-depth analysis of empirical evidence. It covers the effects and causes of trade policy, including strategic trade policy and the income-distribution effects of trade.The book also provides a unified model of open-economy macroeconomics, based on an asset-market approach to exchange rate determination with a central role for expectations. Contents same as US/UK editions. Paul Krugman, geboren 1953 in New York, ist ein brillanter amerikanischer ?konom der jungen Generation. Seine Arbeit wurde u.a. 1991 durch die Verleihung der John-Bates-Clark-Medaille f?r den besten Nachwuchswissenschaftler gew?rdigt. 1998 erhielt Krugman die Ehrendoktorw?rde der Freien Universit?t Berlin, und im Jahr 2000 wurde ihm in N?rnberg der Horst-Recktenwald-Preis f?r National?konomie verliehen. Bereits mit 24 Jahren schloss er seine Promotion am renommierten Massachusetts Institute of Technologie (MIT) mit einer Arbeit ?ber flexible Wechselkurse ab. Im selben Jahr trat er seine erste Professur an der Yale University an. Neben seinen Lehr- und Forschungst?tigkeiten arbeitet Krugman als Berater, u.a. 1992 in der Wahlkampapagne f?r Bill Clinton. Derzeit lehrt er am Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. Neben seiner wissenschaftlichen T?tigkeit schreibt Krugman f?r zahlreiche Zeitungen und hat schon einige erfolgreiche B?cher publiziert. International EconomicsTheory and Policy Paul R.
