Barrymore, L[ionel]
n.p. [Paris?], 1954. 3 pp. pen and ink, 68 bars, piano score on printed music staff paper. 4to. Inscribed to his Sister. A lyrical piece in A minor, with a central section in A major, composed for the piano and inscribed by Lionel Barrymore to his sister: "Dédieé à Mlle. Ethel Barrymore." Barrymore composed a variety of music, from solo pieces to large orchestral works, and received performances by the New York Philharmonic and the Philadelphia Orchestra. The meaning of the title ("Eccentric Hungarian"?) is not clear to us, but in any case this is a wonderful association between two of the greatest American actors of the first half of the 20th century. Toned, small closed tears and edgewear; still a playable fair copy 3 pp. pen and ink, 68 bars, piano score on printed music staff paper. 4to [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Davis, Bette]
[California, 1954. 4to. SCRAPBOOK KEPT BY BETTE DAVIS. A scrapbook kept by Hollywood star Bette Davis (1908-1989) following the birth of her only biological child, Barbara Davis Sherry (b.1947), documenting her first seven years of life and providing a portrait of Davis as affectionate mother. Sherry's father was William Grant Sherry, an artist whom Davis divorced in 1950. The album is captioned throughout in Davis' hand, and includes an Autograph Postcard Signed ("Mamma") of Davis; a printed "This Book Belongs to" leaf has been filled out in ink by Davis, who signs as "B.D. Sr." Includes press clippings relating to Davis' pregnancy and Sherry's birth; cards, letters and ephemera sent by friends and colleagues of Davis; photographs of mother and daughter; a typed list of "Barbara's routine" age 1 year 9 months; Barbara's first letters; a promotional still of Davis and B.D. on the set of "Story of a Divorce"; press clippings and production stills of young B.D.'s first forays into film; a pencil and crayon portrait of B.D.; a short story and illustration by B.D. with a note in Davis' hand; handwriting practice lists; grammar school assignments; letters from B.D. to Davis; etc. Later in life Sherry wrote two memoirs--My Mother's Keeper (1985) and Narrow Is the Way (1987)-- which severly criticized Davis as a mother and which were the source of great contention within the Davis family and among her friends. Davis ultimately disinherted Sherry. The present scrapbook documents a rosier period in their relationship.

Ian Fleming
Live and Let Die by Ian Fleming 1st Edition / 1st Printing (Book Only) Jonathan Cape 1954 I have for sale a very rare copy of Ian Fleming's second book title 'Live & Let Die' which is in truly remarkable condition given its age. As you can see from the photos, the 1st Edition / 1st Printing book is in very nice near fine condition which is extremely rare to find for such an early title. The external boards are clean with only a faint mark present to the bottom of the front panel. The Guilt lettering to the spine and also the coin on the front board are all bright and in unfaded condition (which is very rare to find, most copies are always dull and heavily faded). There is (what looks to be) a slight knock to the top of the spine, but again, pretty minimal bearing in mind the condition of the book. Internally, the book has clean front / rear end papers, the book pages throughout are clean and unmarked which again is so rare to find for this early title. The copyright page shows 'First Published 1954' with no mention of any other printings. With truly fine prestine copies (book only) now fetching between £4 - £5k, a sensibly priced book for someone looking to upgrade or simply add to their already impressive Fleming / Bond Collection. The book will be posted out via 'Royal Mail - Special Delivery' to the winning bidder (U.K Only). Happy to post worldwide, please get in touch for postage costs before the auction ends. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if this book is of interest. Good Luck ! [Attributes: First Edition]

Index The Kingdom of the Earth is a collection of short stories by Tennesse Williams, Title Include: Three Players of a Summer Game Two on a Party Hard Candy The Vine The Mysteries of the Joy of Rio and Many More! ---------- About the Author---------- Thomas Lanier "Tennessee" Williams III (1911 - 1983) was an American playwright and author of many stage classics. Along with Eugene O'Neill and Arthur Miller he is considered among the three foremost playwrights in 20th century American drama. After years of obscurity, he became suddenly famous with The Glass Menagerie (1944), closely reflecting his own unhappy family background. This heralded a string of successes, including A Streetcar Named Desire (1947), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955), and Sweet Bird of Youth (1959). His later work attempted a new style that did not appeal to audiences, and alcohol and drug dependence further inhibited his creative output. His drama A Streetca … [Click Below for Full Description]

Double matted and framed opposite a print of King, Jr. A nice association. Martin Luther King Jr. was an Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 through 1968.

Archive of Original documents/contracts for Breuer's important book, SUN AND SHADOW, published in 1956. Includes the original signed contract between Dodd, Mead & Co. And Breuer, dated 1954. This is the only piece in the collection signed by Breuer. This contract is also signed by Peter Blake, co-writer, friend of Breuer, and Curator of the Dept. Of Architecture and Design at MOMA. There is also a 6-page contract for the English edition, published by Longmans, Green & Co. This is dated 1955 and is signed by Dodd and T. M. Longman. Also the 2-page contract for the Japanese edition, published by Shokoku-Sha Publishing Company. This is dated in 1956 and signed by Dodd and the director of the Japanese publisher. There is also some earlier correspondence between Dodd, Mead and an English publisher, Art and Technics, dated in 1950 & '51. This edition apparently never came to fruition due to costs and delays. There are other receipts and documents concerning the publication of the book. Breuer was one of the most important and influential of the mid-twentieth century architects and designers. He designed the famed Wassily Chair for Bauhaus in the 1920's and the bent wood Long Chair in the mid-1930's.

Szyk, Arthur
NP, NP, 1954. Gouache on cardboard. (5 5/8 x 4 3/8"). Miniature Arthur Szyk was commissioned to execute the artwork for the four volume set of the 1954 Limited Editions Club publication of Arabian Nights Entertainments.* The miniature painting is typical for Szyk's mature style, executed in rich colors and patterns with elaborate decorative border. It was Szyk's final work and he finished only sixty of the one hundred paintings planned for this series before his death in 1951. Our image, the History of Sidi Nu'uman, is reproduced opposite page 647 of volume two of the Arabian Nights. It illustrates the life of the Grandee of the land Sidi Nu'uman, and his wife Aminah. Although this work is not signed, it was authenticated by Irvin Ungar after being sold at Sotheby's New York in 2008. Framed behind glass in gilt wooden frame with teal velvet pas-par tout and slanted gilt inner border. Frame and pas-par tout with light wear. Frame and pas-par tout in overall good+, gouache in very good condition. * "George Macy (Founder of the Limited Edition Club) wrote that Szyk 'was born to illustrate The Arabian Nights.' This new, 'definitive', fully annotated version provided the opportunity. Szyk's contract for the book dates from January 1945 and represents the only specific item in a continuing, open-ended agreement with the publisher (p. 224, Ansell). The Arabian Nights illustrations are slightly looser or rougher in paint application than most of Szyk's other works. Quite often, individual brush or quill strokes are visible, especially in the highlights and shadows. (This phenomenon … [Click Below for Full Description]

Signed by Wilfrid Noyce on the title page. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Foreword by Sir John Hunt. Uncommon signed as Noyce passed away in a mountaineering accident in 1962. On May 21, 1953 Noyce and the Sherpa Annullu (the younger brother of Da Tensing) were the first members of the expedition to reach Everest's South Col, after what Noyce said was "one of the most enjoyable days' mountaineering I've ever had". They left Camp VII at 9.30 am, both using oxygen; according to Noyce, "I had told Anullu that we would not start too early, for fear of frostbite." Several hours later they reached the highest point attained by the British expedition to date: "an aluminium piton with a great coil of thick rope" left by George Lowe and party. The climbers in the camps below, according to Hunt, were watching their progress on this vital part of the climb; by early afternoon "their speed had noticeably increased and our excitement soon grew to amazement when it dawned on us that Noyce and Annullu were heading for the South Col itself". Not long after Hunt made that observation, they reached the Col. It was 2.40 p.m. Wilfrid Noyce and his companion Annullu stood at that moment above the South Col of Everest, at about 26,000 feet. They were gazing down on the scene of the Swiss drama, and they were also looking upwards to the final pyramid of Everest itself. It was a great moment for them bo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Noyce, Wilfrid; Foreword by Sir John Hunt
William Heinemann Ltd, London, 1954. First edition of Noyce's firsthand account of the ascent of South Col. Octavo, original cloth, pictorial endpapers, illustrated with photogravures and maps including frontispiece. Foreword by Sir John Hunt. Association copy, signed by Noyce on the title page and inscribed by him on the front free endpaper to Susan Hunt, "Susan Hunt, Specially - We hope it may while some hours away & that you are not tired with the subject. Rosemary & Wilf Jan 1955." The recipient, Susan Hunt, was the daughter of Sir John Hunt, the leader of the first expedition to reach the summit of Mount Everest in 1953. Susan Hunt married New Zealand-born mountaineer George Lowe, a member of the 1953 expedition, in 1962. During the expedition, Lowe prepared the route from the head of the Western Cwm up the Lhotse Face towards the South Col. He was a member of the support party for Edmund Hillary and Tenzig Norgay's summit attempt and the day before the successful summit, with Alfred Gregory and Sherpa Ang Nyima, descended to the South Col to await Hillary and Norgay's descent. Upon their meeting, Hillary delivered his infamous greeting: "Well, George, we knocked the bastard off." With Lowe's bookplate to the pastedown. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. An exceptional association copy.

DEAN, James (1931 - 1955)
New York, 1954. Exceedingly rare and possibly unique signed Playbill for James Dean's appearance in the Broadway play "The Immoralist" at the Royale Theatre, February 1954. Signed "James Dean" on the front cover, along with "Geraldine Page" and "Louis Jourdan." The Playbill grades near fine condition, retaining much of its milk white surface with no rusting at the staples. The signatures are all executed in pencil with excellent contrast. Accompanied by the even rarer ticket envelope from the Royale Theatre box office containing the original ticket stub for the February 6, 1954 matinee performance. The Balcony seat (Row F Seat 5) cost the attendee $1.80. Note: "The Immoralist" opened for New York previews on February 6, 1954 at the Royale Theatre, a most unusual circumstance at the time; audiences could attend, but critics were not invited. Dean's behavior was erratic and several members of the cast described him as a distraction. On February 7th the producers of the play contacted playwright Paul Osborne. He was working on an adaption of John Steinbeck's "East of Eden" and called director Elia Kazan to recommend the fellow playing the Arab houseboy as a possibility for the leading role. Knowing Dean's work, Kazan jumped at the idea and Dean tendered his resignation the next day -- which happened to be opening night -- before the reviews came in. In essence, Dean appeared in only a handful of preview performances and in the opening night presentation, and then he was gone. This is without doubt one of the most important James Dean items to come to market in the last 25 year … [Click Below for Full Description]

Housed in a smart custom sand-yellow cloth solander box. Jacket spine sunned, slight crease and closed tear at head of front panel, slight abrasion to same. Spine of binding patchily faded, offsetting from jacket to pastedowns, yet this remains a very good copy in a superior example of the jacket.

Harrer, [two line inscription in Tibetan], New York, April 1954"; with Richard Tobin's penciled signature on the front free endpaper. An excellent provenance: Richard L. Tobin, editor and long-serving reporter for the New York Herald Tribune (1932-56), was their most prominent war correspondent. He and Harrer shared the same publisher, E. P. Dutton, who had published Tobin's Invasion Journal in 1944. "This is the action-packed story of a young adventurer's escape from a British internment camp in India during World War II and his dramatic trek through rugged Himalayan passes to sanctuary in the Forbidden City of Lhasa" (jacket blurb).

The Epigraphic Survey (Field Director Harold Hayden Nelson); James Henry Breasted (Ed.); Thomas George Allen (Associate Editor)
The University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1954. This monumental work is the result of an exhaustive epigraphic survey of the following Ramses III's Temples located at Karnak: - Volume I (Plates 1-78) Ramses III's Temple Within the Great Inclosure of Amon (Part I): Elephant folio: 19 1/4 x 23 3/4". XIX, [1]pp (Text), 78 leaves of plates. Original brown and brick cloth, with gold lettering to spine. Photographic frontispiece counted as a plate. The Temple of Karnak is the largest Temple in the World. The complex contains a group of Temples such as the Great Temple of Amon Ra, The Temple of Khonso, The Ipt Temple, The Temple of Ptah, the Temple of Montho and the Temple of the God Osiris. A 65 feet (20m) high, mud brick enclosure wall, surrounded all of these buildings. This great Temple of Amon Ra was known during the Middle Kingdom period as Ipt-Swt, which means the Selected Spot. It was also called Pr-Imn, which means the House of Amon. The name Al-Karnak in Arabic was derived from Karnak, which means fortified village, probably because the Arabs found many Temples and buildings in the area when they entered it for first time. On the right side is the Temple of Ramses III. This Temple consists of a small pylon, an open court and Hypostyle hall, leading to the sanctuary. This second volume contains no less than 5 figures and 78 single and double leaves of plates. Most of the plates are comprised of b/w photographs reproduced in photogravures, as well as line drawings. - Volume II (Plates 79-125) Ramses III's Temple Within the Great Inclosure of Amon (Part II) and Ramses III's … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eisenhower, Dwight D
1954. Rare personal typed letter signed by Dwight D. Eisenhower as President of the United States of America. One page, dated April 30, 1954 and addressed to Max G. Goldberg on White House letterhead, the letter reads, "Dear Mr. Goldberg, Thank you very much for sending me another set of golf club wood head covers, to include a matching one for my number 5. I know that Ed Dudley will appreciate your kind thought of him, too. I suggest you mail his set to the Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Georgia. I am grateful to your friend, Mr. Steven Kowaleski, for delivering your gift to the White House. Sincerely Dwight D. Eisenhower." In fine condition. Matted and framed with an autograph letter signed by Ed Dudley also to Max Goldberg and a photograph of Eisenhower swinging a golf club. The letter measures 7.25 by 5.25 inches. The entire piece measures 20 inches by 20.5 inches. Eisenhower was a golf enthusiast later in life, and he joined the Augusta National Golf Club in 1948. He played golf frequently during and after his presidency and was unreserved in expressing his passion for the game, to the point of golfing during winter; he ordered his golf balls painted black so he could see them better against snow on the ground. He had a putting green installed on the White House lawn during his presidency and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2009. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
