        BERGMAN, INGMAR, Director) GYCKLARNAS AFTON [SAWDUST AND TINSEL] (1953) Swedish poster

      Svensk Filmindustri 1953 - Vintage original 27 ½ x 39" (70 x 100 cm.) poster, Sweden. Harriet Andersson, Hasse Ekman, dir: Ingmar Bergman; Svensk Filmindustri. Originally released in the U.S. under the title THE NAKED NIGHT, this searing film is about a small traveling circus in rural Sweden in the early twentieth century. Ekman's anguished performance as the aging owner of the circus clearly channels Emil Jannings' work in various German expressionist silent films, among them Dupont's VARIETY. Harriet Andersson, in the central role of Ekman's young and rather steely mistress, clearly anticipates the powerful womens' roles which will emerge in later Bergman films. This is arguably Bergman's first great film, and one in which various themes emerge which he will explore in greater depth in subsequent films -- alienation, the power struggles between men and women, and also an interest in performers and in the very act of performing. On linen, there has been normal touch-up to foldlines and to address minor wear to margins, VERY GOOD.

All flaws on books are described to our best aability, numerous pictures of this collection is available upon request, feel free to inquiry. -------------- --------------- Pinkie Pienter is een Nederlandse strip die in de periode 1954-1960 bij uitgeverij Mulder en Zn. verscheen. De oorspronkelijke auteur is J.H. Koeleman. Van de in totaal 18 albums die verschenen, zijn de laatste zes echter getekend door Lex Overeijnder. Koeleman heeft geprobeerd om een Nederlandse Kuifje te maken, maar door zijn bizarre tekenstijl (vooral de psychedelische kleuren trekken de aandacht) en verhaalmethode heeft Koeleman een cultfiguur gecreëerd die nu (na 50 jaar) nog steeds een groep liefhebbers weet te boeien. Een mooi voorbeeld van de onsamenhangende verhaalstijl van Koeleman is het lot van het hondje van Pinkie in het eerste verhaal "De grote race". Net als Kuifje moest Pinkie natuurlijk een hondje hebben. Kuifje heeft zijn hond in al zijn avonturen bij zich gehouden. Maar het hondje van Pinkie verdwijnt in het eerste verhaal al ergens halverwege het avontuur (in het buitenland) uit beeld, en komt ook nooit meer terug. De verhalen van Pinkie Pienter zijn ook minder realistisch dan die van Kuifje. Wat Kuifje meemaakt, zou allemaal echt gebeurd kunnen zijn. Pinkies avonturen daarentegen bevatten elementen als bijvoorbeeld pillen waarmee je onder water adem kunt halen, een ontmoeting met Neptunus (de god van de zee), etcetera. Natuurlijk heeft Pinkie ook een sidekick, in Pinkies geval is dat een violist genaamd Floris Fiedel. In de meeste stripverhalen komen de sidekicks pas na een paar avonturen als vanzelf naar voren. (Olivier B. Bommel verschijnt pas in het derde avontuur van Tom Poes, kapitein Haddock is er in de eerste verhalen van Kuifje ook nog niet bij). Floris wordt echter in het eerste verhaal al na een paar pagina's als lifter het verhaal binnengebracht. Hij stelt zichzelf voor als Floris (met een "i") Fiedel, maar na dit eerste plaatje wordt hij verder consequent als Flores aangeduid (ook door zichzelf). Ook in het tweede en derde album wordt hij Flores genoemd, om vanaf deel 4 tenslotte toch weer als Floris door het stripleven te gaan. Verder is het kenmerk in de verhalen van Pinkie Pienter dat in zo'n beetje elk verhaal Bul Bumper de slechterik speelt. Pinkie Pienter is ook in het buitenland uitgebracht. In Frankrijk (waar Pinkie was omgedoopt tot 'Martin le Malin') zijn er zelfs meer verhalen gepubliceerd dan in Nederland, maar deze extra verhalen zijn niet door Koeleman gemaakt en missen dan ook de extra dimensie die Koeleman (waarschijnlijk onbedoeld) de avonturen van Pinkie heeft meegegeven.. Soft Cover. Good - to Good . 4to - over 9¾" - 12".

        A Typed Letter Signed regarding the Bricker Amendment.

      - Written by John F. Kennedy as senator from Massachusetts on United States Senate stationary, Washington, D.C. Dated: Monday, March 22, 1954To: Mr. Neil LeonardBingham, Dana & Gould1 Federal StreetBoston, MassachusettsDear Mr. Leonard: Thank you for writing to me concerning my vote on the Bricker Amendment. My position on this resolution was reached only after considerable study and deliberation and a statement was prepared setting forth my reasons for opposing this resolution as well as the George Amendment. In the event that this statement has not come to your attention, I am enclosing a copy for your information. With every good wish, I am, Sincerely yours, John F. KennedyEnclosureJFK: wjdCondition: Very clean and clear, typed in bright blue ink, with 2 horizontal folds not affecting any of the text. The enclosure is not present, but there are tiny staple holes at the top left-hand corner just above "John F. Kennedy." The Bricker Amendment is the collective name of a number of proposed amendments to the United States Constitution considered by the United States Senate in the 1950s. Each of these amendments would have placed restrictions on the scope and ratification of treaties and executive agreements entered into by the United States and are named for their sponsor, Senator John W. Bricker of Ohio, a conservative Republican.The best-known version of the Bricker Amendment, considered by the Senate in 1953–54, declared that no treaty could be made by the United States that conflicted with the Constitution, was self-executing without the passage of separate enabling legislation through Congress, or which granted Congress legislative powers beyond those specified in the Constitution. It also limited the president's power to enter into executive agreements with foreign powers.Bricker's proposal attracted broad bipartisan support and was a focal point of intra-party conflict between the administration of president Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Old Right faction of conservative Republican senators. Despite the initial support, the Bricker Amendment was blocked through the intervention of President Eisenhower and failed in the Senate by a single vote in 1954. Three years later the Supreme Court of the United States explicitly ruled in Reid v. Covert that the Bill of Rights cannot be abrogated by agreements with foreign powers. Nevertheless, Senator Bricker's ideas still have supporters, and new versions of his amendment have been reintroduced in Congress periodically. (Wikipedia)

        Autograph manuscript of a draft letter to Igor Stravinsky about collaborating on an opera

      The Boat House, Laugharne, 16 June 1953. Two pages on single sheet of blue-grey paper, 7 x 5 1/4 ins. Written in blue ink. A little soiled and creased. Two mounting tabs on verso. Published. Draft letter to Igor Stravinsky entirely in ThomasÕs hand, with several corrections and deletions; unfinished. Written less than 5 months before his death in Nov. 1953, this poignant letter reflects ThomasÕs hesitancy in expressing interest in writing something for Stravinsky to set to music perhaps. Ã’I have lots of ideas - good, bad, and chaotic [with a line to insert this later in the letter]... I was very very glad to meet you, for a little time, in Boston... IÕve been thinking a lot about the opera. As soon as I can get something down on paper, I would love to send it to you... I shd like very much - if you think you wd still like me to work with you; and IÕll be enormously honoured to do that - to come to California to see you... And by that time, I hope, too, to have some clearer ideas about a libretto...Ó Shortly after this meeting Thomas writes of his excitement at the commission and of the payment and royalties he expects. As Alexander Carpenter noted: Ã’Stravinsky had for some time expressed enthusiasm for the idea of writing an opera in collaboration with Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. When Thomas' sudden death in 1953 put an end to this prospect, Stravinsky composed a work to his memory [in 1954], using Thomas' memorial to his own father, "Do not go gentle into that good night" as the text. The complete title of In Memoriam includes the designation "Dirge-Canons and Song," which describes the work's structure. The song, a setting of Thomas' poem, is placed between the two dirges, which bookend the work as prelude and postlude."

        Typed Letter Signed, in Danish, 2 separate pages folio, Rungstedlund, September 24, 1953

      - A late letter to the editor Schelde-Møller, discussing the politics of the animal rights movement. "I am not sure that my speech will be good for the animals. The friend of the animals is for the supporters of the vivisection is a fresh thought." Blixen then expresses concern about how the opponents will try and gather interest by focusing on the split of the organization "and I could do more harm than good . All test animals of higher species have my deepest compassion and I do not differ between dogs and cats. My whole action is built upon the pronouncements of Prof. Okkel. I lost confidence in the discussion because it has become virtually impossible to communicate with the scientist . I would not accept that only dogs would be accepted by vivisection. I saw in this gesture, a beginning." She gives her views. "I myself am of the opinion that the community of animal friends is more important than these differences. I wrote this to you so you could, in case, that I withdraw it not to think that I have betrayed our common goal, but to support it." Nicely signed, "Karen Blixen Finecke." [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        ABC of Economics [Signed]

      London: Peter Russell The Pound Press, 1953. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/very good. A Fine copy of the first Anniversary edition (a touch of pushing to the spine ends), in Very Good dust jacket (some soiling, tiny chips to the leading corners and to the spine head), SIGNED BY EZRA POUND on the front free endpaper and there inscribed by him as follows: "H g / from / E P". Pound's ABC of Economics was first published in 1933 to, as Pound stated in the Preface, "...express the fundamentals of economics so simply and clearly that even people of different economic schools and factions will be able to understand each other when they discuss them." The ABC of Economics was the longest of Pound's six so-called "money pamphlets", this one seeking, in response to the Great Depression, a more just distribution of work, money, and goods which, in Pound's view would lead to shorter work days. Copies of the work are quite scarce to the market and, in our experience, signed copies are as scarce as hen's teeth. An altogether Very Good + copy, SIGNED BY EZRA POUND. QUITE SCARCE.

        Philosophische Untersuchungen / Philosophical Investigations. Translated by G.E.M. Anscombe. Oxford: Basil Blackwell, 1953.

      - First impression of the first edition. 'Wittgenstein refrained from publishing the Investigations during his lifetime, but his explicit wish was that it be published posthumously, a wish that he probably did not have with respect to any of the rest of the voluminous work he produced between 1929 and 1951. Wittgenstein believed that the Investigations could be better understood if one saw it against the background of [his 1922 book, the] Tractatus. A considerable part of the Investigations is an attack, either explicit or implicit, on the earlier work. This development is probably unique in the history of philosophy - a thinker producing, at different periods of his life, two highly original systems of thought, each system the result of many years of intensive labors, each expressed in an elegant and powerful style, each greatly influencing contemporary philosophy, and the second being a criticism and rejection of the first' (Norman Malcolm in The Encyclopedia of Philosophy). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Large 8vo, x [+xe], 232 [+ 232e], publisher's blue cloth, gilt spine lettering dulled as usual, lower board marked, unclipped dust-jacket with spine somewhat darkened, a few edge nicks and short closed tears, and a 3-line note on the rear flap, the errata neatly corrected in ink and ticked as such on the errata slip inserted loose, generally a very good clean copy.

        BOB WILLOUGHBY: AUDREY HEPBURN PHOTOGRAPHS 1953-1966 - DELUXE SIGNED LIMITED EDITION

      (WILLOUGHBY, BOB) (HEPBURN, AUDREY). Willoughby, Bob. BOB WILLOUGHBY: AUDREY HEPBURN PHOTOGRAPHS 1953-1966 - DELUXE SIGNED LIMITED EDITION. Signed and Numbered by the Photographer. Koln, GERMANY: Benedikt Taschen Verlag, 2010. First Edition 1/1000 Deluxe. Folio. Boards in a Clamshell Box. Photography Monograph. As New/As New. 282pp, profusely illustrated in black & white. Text in English, German and French. "In his distinguished career as a Hollywood photographer, Bob Willoughby took iconic photos of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Jane Fonda, but remains unequivocal about his favorite subject: Audrey Hepburn. Willoughby was called in to shoot the new starlet one morning shortly after she arrived in Hollywood in 1953. It was a humdrum commission for the portraitist often credited with having perfected the photojournalistic movie still, but when he met the Belgian-born beauty, Willoughby was enraptured. "She took my hand like...well a princess, and dazzled me with that smile that God designed to melt mortal men's hearts," he recalls. As Hepburn's career soared following her Oscar-winning US debut in "Roman Holiday", Willoughby became a trusted friend, framing her working and home life. His historic, perfectionist, tender photographs seek out the many facets of Hepburn's beauty and elegance, as she progresses from her debut to her career high of "My Fair Lady" in 1963. Willoughby's studies, showing her on set, preparing for a scene, interacting with actors and directors, and returning to her private life, comprise one of photography's great platonic love affairs and an unrivalled record of one of the 20th century's touchstone beauties". A pristine example of this extraordinary volume - a must-have for the Audrey completeist that sold out upon publication - limited to one thousand copies in a decorative clamshell box SIGNED AND NUMBERED by the late Bob Willoughby, unopened in the publisher's shrinkwrapped printed shipping carton, as issued. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. 3-8365-1889-9 Inventory Number: 023236&
