Hugh Jones, a local Pennsylvania Democratic politician, in response to a letter by Jones seeking clarification for her words as quoted in the A.P. Typed on her 202 Fifty-Sixth Street, New York letterhead and dated August 31, 1953, she writes: Dear Mr. Jones: The A.P. dispatch was only partly quoted correctly. I said "He has made the great mass of people blindly afraid of communism. People in government circles are afraid to be different because of the unfair methods Senator McCarthy used'". I am not slandering or maligning my country but I am anxious that everyone of the citizens of the US wakes up to the harm he has done our prestige throughout the world. Everywhere they ask if he is destroying our freedom. In Europe they have seen a Hitler and a Stalin come to power and they recognize the methods used by Senator McCarthy as being very similar. Very sincerely yours, [signed] Eleanor Roosevelt New York:, np, 1953. Two quarto sheets (6in x 7in) with type on one side, original envelope. With Jones's copy of his letter. Fold at center, otherwise fine. Eleanor Roosevelt letters with good political content are rare.

        Original Science Fiction Illustration By Jay Landau for "Death of a Sensitive", Harry Bates, May, 1953 Issue of "Science Fiction Plus"

      No Location: No Publisher, 1953. No Location: No Publisher, 1953 Original illustration, ink on stiff board, by Jay Landau (later, the famed painter Jacob Landau) for the sci-fi pulp story "Death of A Sensitive" from the May, 1953 issue of Science Fiction Plus. 9 7/8" x 9" overall size, image size is most of that (see scan). Note: the layout editor's note at the bottom of the image in scan, which says 7 3/8", refers to the size the image is to be in the printed issue, not the 9" width of this original. This was executed as line art on copper, as were most of Landau's pulp illustrations; this is this black and white from that for the magazine for reproduce in that May issue. There were presumably no others executed from it. Annotation on front (see scan), also annotations on reverse. Former paste foxing on reverse, presumably from the layout process for the issue; none on front. The front, the image itself, is fine, as used by the publisher. Used to illustrate the Harry Bates story, "Death of a Sensitive" - a story deemed by publisher Hugo Gernsback's editor, Sam Moskowitz, to be the best he ever published in the magazine (Bates was the author of, in Astounding Science Fiction in 1940, "Farewell to the Master", which later became the basis for the classic sci-fi film, "The Day the Earth Stood Still"). A moody illustration by Landau, who, as the pulp illustrator he was at that time, is hard to find on the original sci-fi art market. Though he loved science fiction and did a fair amount of early magazine, he later was able to concentrate solely on the stylish, impactful, often socially conscious and always psychologically disturbing mainstream painting which was his first love and for which he later became so famous. His early professional work for publications was done as either Jay Landau or J. Landau (often signed only "Landau", though), but the later work was, of course, largely by "Jacob Landau". Landau died in November, 2001 at the age of 85. The intimidating and moody nature of this illustration is, to a degree, in keeping with that later painting style. The May issue of Science Fiction Plus is not itself included with this item; the scan of the published image is included with this listing for reference. l-lng1

        Kiss Me Kate (Presentation copy)

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1953. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1953. First edition. Fine/Fine. Inscribed: "For Harold Uris - If we had more space, we'd write more "Kates" - However, this got written in the attic at 930 - for which, much thanks - Sam & Bella Spewack." Harold Uris was a noted real estate entrepreneur who built the luxury apartment building at 930 Fifth Ave. where the Spewacks lived while they worked on the musical. A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket with the spine panel slightly faded, but a lovely copy overall, made the more interesting due to the association with Harold Uris. & & "All you can say for Kiss Me, Kate is that it is terribly enjoyable," wrote famed theatre critic Brooks Atkinson upon seeing it for the first time. Cole Porter';s famous 1948 musical, inspired by Shakespeare';s The Taming of The Shrew, would go on to become a major success, and run for 1,077 performances on Broadway, the most of any of his shows. Under the force of such classics as "So in Love" and "Brush Up Your Shakespeare", it would win the first Tony Award presented for Best Musical, in 1949, and also the Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical for Samuel and Bella Spewack. The Spewacks were successful writers in their own right, and had been nominated for an Academy Award for their work on "My Favorite Wife." Interestingly enough, Kiss Me, Kate would end up being adapted into a film as well, now thought of as Hollywood';s first 3-D musical. Fine in Fine. dust jacket.

        Go Tell It on the Mountain.

      - New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1953. 8vo, (12), 303, (1, colophon)pp. Original color-printed wrappers, lower cover plain, backstrip faded, a few leaves creased in the outer edge, a remarkably good copy of this fragile survival. First edition, Advance Reading Copy in wrappers. Baldwin's first book, a semi-autobiographical novel. The book examines the role of the Christian Church in the lives of African-Americans, both as a source of repression and moral hypocrisy and as a source of inspiration and community. It also, more subtly, examines racism in the United States. ÒUpon publication it was immediately hailed as a major treatment of black life in America and established Baldwin as the leading black novelist of his generation. Baldwin's objections to the art that appeared on this advance issue (he felt it too stereotypical) resulted in a different dustwrapper appearing when the first edition was released. A highly desirable cornerstone of any African-American literature collection. A Modern Library and Radcliffe book of the century.Ó (BTC 2011). It also subtly touches on gay and bisexual themes that would be more prominent in his later works. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

" [drei Noten] ! / Herrn Lembens zur / Erinnerung. / Paul Hindemith" - // - Verso entfernte Montagespuren, etwas knitterig, sonst sehr gut. - // - 1953 kehrte Paul Hindemith, dessen Musik unter den Nazis als "entartet" galt, aus dem amerikanischen Exil in die Schweiz zurück. Ab 1957 beendete er seine Lehrtätigkeit in Yale und Zürich und widmete sich mehr dem Dirigieren. - Seine Widmung auf unserem ORIGINAL-Foto geht an Hans-Dieter Lembens (1933-2010), der als Schlagzeuger und Solopauker bis zum Mauerbau 1961 am Staatstheater Saarbrücken und im Berliner Sinfonie-Orchester (DDR) gearbeitet hatte. 1962 wurde er Mitglied der (West) Berliner Philharmoniker, denen er 36 Jahre lang, bis zu seiner Pensionierung im August 1998 angehörte.
