        Highly Important 4-page Contract Signed by Marilyn Monroe for RCA. It specifically discusses "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", where she would sing her most famous song "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" and defers to Twentieth Century-Fox in all movie relate songs

      "Document signed ""Marilyn Monroe"", 4 pps., dated October 8, 1953 on onion skin paper measuring 8.25"" x 11"" between Monroe and Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation. Among Hollywood historians, itâ??s generally agreed that 1953 marked Marilyn Monroeâ??s ascent to legend. A few years earlier, sheâ??d inked a seven-year deal with Twentieth Century-Fox, but her film stardom wasnâ??t realized until the 1953 unveiling of â??Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.â? That mid-summer release, with its immediately ensuing box office acclaim, served as the momentum for her signing this singing contract with RCA.Itâ??s an onionskin four-page document, drafted under the corporationâ??s letterhead, that provides for a two-year deal commencing in late 1953. Thereâ??s no mention in the agreement about Monroeâ??s compensation except her cut of the resultant royalties, but weâ??d imagine that a â??draw reservoirâ? was available to her. Through the term of the contract, she was obliged to record not fewer that â??16 sides,â? which we interp"

        Small Archive of Letters

      Seven Typed Letters Signed from Clark to Arthur J. Sussel, from 1953 through 1955. The letters, on Clark's Brevard, North Carolina stationery, are near fine with a few small flaws. A small group of interesting and friendly letters between the important naval historian and author Clark, and the Philadelphia antiques dealer and nautical collector Sussel. Clark was an advertising executive but his interest in naval history transformed from a hobby into a second career, and he became the foremost authority on certain aspects of the American Revolution. He was appointed by the U.S. Navy as the first editor of the multi-volume series Naval Documents of the American Revolution. Clark helped Sussel in researching items in his collection, including an important portrait of James Josiah by Charles Willson Peale. The letters are about individual items in the collection and about Clark's own books. Accompanied by a carbon of a letter from Sussel's widow, dated in 1961, to H.F. duPont suggesting that the White House might want to buy Sussel's collection intact for Jacqueline Kennedy's renovation of the White House interior. .

        Sea Charts of the South Coast of England.]

      Britain 1953 - 8vo. 21 by 16 cm. 53 pp., with fold-out maps, etc. Many maps meticulously drawn and colored with blue, gray and a touch of red wash of the coastline of Southern England from Cornwall to Dover. These maps were drawn by a young yachtsman enthusiast who ultimately turned professional. The maps were done ostensibly as a tool both to learn the coast better and for use, but plainly Coldwell, whether consciously or not, created something that transcends a mere utilitarian purpose, for the maps and charts exude a beauty that the common lined notebook paper can not extinguish. Also one page of hand-colored signal flags, and throughout are neatly written notes on how to handle particular waters. The old note paper has soiling and waviness from use. The later recasing is pristine, with some clean extra leaves in the back.

        Caucasian Battlefields. A History of the Wars on the Turco-Caucasian Border 1828-1921.

      Cambridge: At the University Press: First editon 1953 - large 8vo., xxii, 614pp., with frontispiece and 7 other plates, 8 folding maps, 17 full-page maps, and 14 sketch maps to the text, original blue cloth gilt. A practically near fine clean copy in the uncommon original dustwrapper which is lightly rubbed has a few small chips to extreme head of spine and internally re-inforced along extreme top and lower edges. The Caucasus region, which forms a natural boundary between Asia and Europe, has always been of great strategic importance. Russia's expansion into the region in the late eighteenth century brought conflict with the Ottoman Empire, creating a new area of contention between these two states, and the borderlands remained in a state of intermittent conflict until the end of the First World War. This is a history of the four Russo-Turkish Wars fought in the Caucasus during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It is based largely on Turkish and Russian sources - staff histories, military journals, and memoirs - and on English, German, and French studies of particular campaigns. The main theme is the history of the defence of eastern Anatolia, from the end of the Napoleonic wars to modern times. The authors briefly relate their accounts of the campaigns to the general history of Russia's drive to the Mediterranean, and to the wider problems of Middle East strategy. The military topography of the border regions of Turkey and Caucasia is described in detail. This work was described on publication as "the most complete and authoritative study of this subject available in the English language" (Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies, XIX, 1, p206), and has recently been confirmed as "a classic study" (ODNB). Allen "was a man of many talents: a gentleman, a businessman, a philosopher, an adventurer, but continuously and most powerfully an energetic historian and linguist. He made his library, later held by the University of Indiana, the finest private collection of books on Georgia and the Caucasus in the Western world. Throughout his life he travelled extensively in remote places and may be the only person to have walked the entire length of the Turkish-Russian frontier"; an essayist, cultural historian, novelist and playwright, Muratoff was cited in Clive James' Cultural Amnesia as a prime example of "just how brilliant somebody can be and still be a forgotten man", having published an account of a tour of Italy, Obrazy italii (1911-24), "one of the most dazzling books of its type ever written. As a book on the Italian Grand Tour it not only stands directly in the tradition of Goethe, Gregorovius, Burckhardt and Arthur Symons, but it is better than any of them".

        [Caption Title]: Ford Armando

      B. Aires: Ford Armando. 1953. Double spiral-bound in full leather with applied engraved silver presentation label (marked "900" and "Industria Argentina") pierced with a small silk braided ribbon. [60]pp., of photographic images. No text. Some modest wear to the leather boards, silver label tarnished, small marks on a couple images, but overall near fine. Silver presentation label reads: "To Arthur J. Wieland as a Souvenir of the Inauguration of the Agency Ford Armando. June 30th, 1953. B. Aires, R.Argentina." The photos are of exceptional quality, and depict the ceremonies surrounding the opening of the car dealership, the notables and gathered crowds (which we are reasonably certain include Argentina's then-President Juan Peron), the physical agency, the cars and buses, etc. Wieland was vice president of Ford International at the time, and was largely responsible for the growth of Ford in South America, particularly in Argentina and Brazil. .
