        Pablo Picasso. Elegy of Ihpetonga and Masks of Ashes. With four original lithographs by Picasso.

      Noonday Press, New York 1954 - Pablo Picasso. Elegy of Ihpetonga and Masks of Ashes. With four original lithographs by Picasso. Yvan Goll (poet), Pablo Picasso (Illustrator). Published by The Noonday Press, New York, 1954. With four original lithographs by Picasso. Edition limited in only 64 copies. Printed on Fabriano laid paper of different colors. English edition prepared by Clair Goll after the death of the poet on 1950. This edition was published in New York where the Golls had lived from 1939 to 1947. A French edition was published on Paris by Editions Hemispheres on 1949, after the couple returned to France from the exile in New York because of the Jewish origins of the poet. Elegy of Ihpetonga is dedicated to Picasso and reflect Goll’s experience in New York. A comment preceding the poem explains its title: “Ihpetonga, which signifies high cliff, was the name that the Canarsie Indians gave to that part of Brooklyn which today is known as Columbia Heightsand which dominate the port of New York. There this poem was conceived.” For this book Picasso made four wash drawings, dated April 11, 1949, on lithographic paper, printed by Mourlot Freres, Paris. The English edition contains the same original lithographs, dated 11.4.1949, as the French, and differ from the French edition for the appearance: The text is printed on red, grey, blue, and white paper, and the lithographs are mounted on black paper. Condition: A very rare book, a little jewel very well preserved. REF: CRAMER #70. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Hebrew Bible in German]. [Comprising] Die Fünf Bücher der Weisung; Bücher der Geschicte; Bücher der Kündung; Die Schriftwerke.

      Koln Bei Jakob Hegner -55-58-62 1954 - Four volumes; 8vo., (18.7 x 11.5 cm), inscribed presentation set, original black cloth, paper labels, dust-wrappers, a fine set. Buber's monumental work, inscribed on front free endpaper of Die Schriftwerke volume. Martin Buber (1878-1965) was an Austrian-born Jewish philosopher, religious thinker, political activist and educator. He was a direct descendent of the prominent 16th century rabbi, Meir Katzenellenbogen, known as the Maharam of Padua, as was his cousin - cosmetics queen, Helena Rubinstein. Karl Marx is another notable relative. Born in Vienna, Buber came from a family of observant Jews, but broke with Jewish custom to pursue secular studies in philosophy. He spent most of his life in Germany and Israel, writing in German and Hebrew. In 1902 he became the editor of the weekly Die Welt - the central organ of the Zionist movement, although he later withdrew from organisational work in Zionism. In 1923, Buber wrote his famous essay on existence, Ich und Du (later translated into English as I and Thou), and in 1925, he began translating the Hebrew Bible into the German language, as exemplified here. He began this monumental work in collaboration with Franz Rosenzweig, but it was not completed until 1961, more than 30 years after Rosenzweig's death. When translating the Bible, Buber's goal was to make the German version as close to the original oral Hebrew as possible. Rather than smoothing over difficult or unclear passages, he preferred to leave them rough. One important method was to identify keywords (Leitworte) and study the linguistic relationship between the parts of the text, uncovering the repetition of word stems and same or similar sounding words. Buber also tried to ward against Platonizing tendencies by shifting from static and impersonal terms to active and personal terms. For instance, whereas kodesh had previously been translated "holy," he used the term "hallowing" to emphasize activity. Similarly, God is not the "Being" but the "Existing," and what had been rendered "Lord" became "I," "Thou" and "He." [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Presentation Copies to Ruth Tolman of : THE OPEN MIND and SCIENCE AND THE COMMON UNDERSTANDING [ together with ] a Handwritten Note

      Simon & Schuster, New York 1954 - SCIENCE AND THE COMMON UNDERSTANDING, 1954, First Printing, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR on front end page - "for Ruth in gratitude & love Robert May - June 1954". Laid in, a single page of typing paper titled "Errata in SCIENCE AND THE COMMON UNDERSTANDING" , denoting 6 errors and a suggested improvement. Also laid in a page torn from "The New Statesman and Nation", dated Dec. 26, 1953 and an undated newspaper clipping from the same period, both concerning Oppenheimer. THE OPEN MIND, 1955, First Printing, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR on front end page - "for Ruth, with my love Robert Christmas 1955". Laid in, a single page , folded, 6 1/2" x 5 1/2", "The Institute for Advanced Study, Office of the Director, Princeton, New Jersey" letterhead, undated and unsigned, which reads - " Ruth Dear, Most of these you have seen at one time or another, but perhaps you would like to have them neat & tidy. The S F talk is still on its way, & I don't yet have it. There is a long letter in me crying to be written to you - it should reach you before this." Both books are Fine in Near Fine dust jackets, light rubbing and small chips at bottom edge of spine folds. Ruth Sherman Tolman was the wife of Richard C. Tolman, and she was Robert Oppenheimer's best friend and confidant. A brilliant psychologist in her own right, she helped lead the effort to make psychology a science, held a key post with the OSS, the forerunner of the CIA, and established some of the first treatments for battle fatigue, which we know today as PTSD. Robert Oppenheimer, the "Father of the Atomic Bomb", head of the Manhattan Project, and the founder of modern theoretical physics in America, became a friend of the Tolman's while in his 20s, staying at their guest house during his time spent going between Caltech and UC Berkeley. Robert and Ruth were rumored to have had a long-running affair, which was disavowed by those who knew them, but recent books have renewed that debate. It is known that Ruth destroyed many of his letters, although some have come to light. While this note doesn't settle that debate, it does, along with the inscription, indicate the intimacy that they shared. Books SIGNED AND INSCRIBED by Oppenheimer are uncommon, and with the note to Ruth, the presentation inscriptions and unique association, this collection of material is RARE.

        Il visconte dimezzato

      Giulio Einaudi, 1954. In 8°, pagg. 116, (2), brochure editoriale a stampa. Volume n° 9 della celebre collana di letteratura "I Gettoni". Ristampa del 12 febbraio 1954, ricercata e non comune. Tracce di scotch al dorso, per il resto ottimo stato. La Collana, ideata e diretta da Elio Vittoriani, propose tra il 1951 e il 1958 opere di narrativa contemporanea di autori per lo più italiani. Furono pubblicati in totale 58 volumi. Dopo la morte di Cesare Pavese nel 1950 la casa editrice Einaudi , coordinata da Luciano Foà, assunse il compito, soprattutto con «I gettoni» di Vittorini, di rinnovare la narrativa italiana promuovendo nuovi autori come Fenoglio, Lucentini, Ottieri, Lalla Romano, Rigoni Stern, Anna Maria Ortese, Sciascia e molti altri. Pubblicata tra il 1951 e il 1958 la collana comprese un totale di 58 titoli per lo più di autori italiani, ma non mancarono nomi stranieri, allora ancora poco noti, come Borges, Dylan Thomas, Morris che in questa collana trovarono l'occasione della prima traduzione italiana.

        Das Prinzip Hoffnug, (The Principle of Hope).

      Aufbau-Verlag 1954, 1955, 1959, Berlin - Bloch's Major Work - The "monstrous essence of his thought"Volume1: Half-title + TP + Dedication Page + [7]-477 + 1 leaf = Outline of the Work in Three Volumes; Volume 2: Half-title + TP + [5]-512 + 1 leaf = Outline of the Work in Three Volumes; Volume 3: Half-title + TP + [5]-518 + 1 leaf = Outline of the Work in Three Volumes + 1 loose leaf = Errata in Band 1 & 2; Octavo. All Three in First Edition.Published in an edition of 3,000 copies each."In 1933 Bloch left Germany, eventually reaching the United States, where he created his major work, Das Prinzip Hoffnung, a huge work that has been called 'a monstrous essence of his thought'." (EP, Volume 1, p. 321)Bloch observes that throughout history, and in all cultures, people have dreamed of a better life and constructed various kinds of utopias. Utopian dreams are present in art forms such as poetry, drama, music and painting, and in elementary form in children's dreams, fairy-tales, and popular legend. Utopian impulses can also be found in architecture, medicine, sport, dancing and circuses, as well as in specifically utopian literature and in the entire history of religion. Some utopias relate simply to immediate private ends, but the higher kind of revolutionary utopia envisages the end of human suffering. For Bloch, the positive utopia is the expectation of absolute perfection. Revolutionary utopias of past ages were seen by Bloch as reflections of humanity's desire for perfection, post-Marxist utopias were all seen by him as reactionary. Bloch insists the only two possible outcomes to history are absolute destruction and absolute perfection"Bloch's major work and one of the as-yet undigested masterpieces of twentieth century philosophy. Conceived and largely elaborated during Block's long, often impoverished exile in the Unites States where he had expected to publish it under the title Dreams of A Better Life, the work actually appeared after Bloch's return to the GDR, the first two volume receiving the National Prize upon publication, effectively recognizing Block as the GDR's leading philosopher. Soon, however, the undelimitable breadth and profound religious depths of his work led to conflict with the regime and his virtual silencing, though his work continued to appear irregularly. This great work is meant as 'an encyclopedia of hope that attempts to catalogue the surplus of utopian thought (whose unrealized meaning is the crux of the Not-Yet-Conscious) from Early Greek philosopher to the present day.' No less an expositor of that unrealized meaning than George Steiner has written that 'we have lost a characteristic elan, a metaphysic and technique of forward dreaming, of which Ernst Bloch's Das Prinzip Hoffnung is an inspired statement.'" (Wronoski, in Lame Duck. General Catalog, June 1998) original dark blue cloth with very good dust s (minor chipping to some edges). All three dust s very lightly sunned on spines. Front of volume 3 with some sun discoloration. A difficult set of books to assemble due to the place, time and political climate in which it was published. Rare in dust s. Overall, a beautiful set.

        Original Manuscript of HRH: THE STORY OF PHILIP, DUKE OF EDINBURGH (48pp Heavily Corrected Typescript w/ Authorial Revisions)

      1954. Hilton, James (1900-1954). ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT for HRH: THE STORY OF PRINCE PHILIP, DUKE OF EDINBURGH. 48pp, [n.p., n.d. but 1954]. A little known but quite significant manuscript for those interested in the earliest years of England's current Royal Family. -- In the fall of 1954, famed author and Oscar-winning screenwriter James Hilton ("Lost Horizon" "Goodbye, Mr. Chips") ("Mrs. Miniver") was asked by the Hearst Syndicate to provide a Sunday newspaper piece on "England's uncrowned king" Prince Philip who was then only little known to the British public despite being the husband of newly crowned Queen Elizabeth II. Prior to this biography, the only published biographical material on Philip was a short tabloid article by his valet. The full text of Hilton's biography of HRH: The Story of Philip, Duke of Edinburgh was published in book form by Little, Brown (Boston, 1956) and shortly thereafter by Frederick Muller Ltd. (London, 1956). The manuscript's 48 leaves are typed on ordinary yellow paper stock. Virtually every page has been heavily revised by Hilton with much emendation; further, a large amount of additional holograph material appears on the versos consisting of general notes and draft paragraphs. The manuscript is almost entirely complete despite breaks in the pagination including the absence of those leaves numbered [2-5]; a comparison with the printed American text shows Hilton re-worked his opening with generous excisions and additions. Unfortunately Hilton, who traveled from the States to England for background research on this piece, almost immediately fell ill upon his return and died shortly thereafter. Consequently this manuscript represents Hilton's final achievement as a writer after a remarkably successful career -- and thus has dual importance as a first royal biography and a last creative effort by the one of the best loved authors of the era. Although this manuscript was sold with the rest of James Hilton's archive in 1999 by Christie's Los Angeles, it was buried amongst miscellaneous papers at the time and has only recently been identified and fully catalogued. More details and a full index are available upon request. . Signed. Original Manuscript. Unbound. Very Good.

        The Worship of Love: A Study of Nature Worship Throughout the World [Signed by Longworth; Signed by George Seferis]

      London: Torchstream Books, 1954. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/very good +. An about Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original dark brown cloth (mildly canted, some pushing at the spine ends and board corners, bare traces of wear, a bit of wrinkling to the first plate, spine label sharp and crisp), in a Very Good + example of the scarce dust jacket which matches the free endpapers and pastedowns (small chips with tears at the spine panel's upper corners, tape repairs to the inside of the jacket, tiny wear at upper panel corner turns to the spine flaps, mild wear and tiny chip to the spine label that does not affect the lettering, portions of some signatures are unopened); copy 298 from a Limited Edition of 975 copies, SIGNED BY T. CLIFTON LONGWORTH on the title page and FURTHER SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS on the front free endpaper to British author Rex Warner, his friend and the translator of some of Seferis' works. The front free endpaper also shows a single line in Greek which is underscored and under which has been drawn a series of arrows. Translated to English, the line, presumably written by Seferis or Longworth, appears to read "worship of sensual love on island of Cyprus" or "praise to worship of love on Cyprus". T. Clifton Longworth was deeply interested in the origins of religious belief and wrote extensively on the topic. In his studies of both ancient religions and present day tribal religions, Longworth determined the worship of love, that is, the adoration of reproductive organs as the symbol of the creative power, to be a common theme, running through the very first religions and constituting the first and most universal form of religious expression. This book presents an extensive study of the topic and, notably, the half-title carries the following printed statement: "The sale of this book is restricted to members of the Medical and Legal Professions, Anthropologists, Psychologists, Sociologists, Ethnologists and Students of Comparative Religion". In his research, Longworth visited Cyprus where he viewed the the sacred Cone of Aphrodite. He discusses it and the marvelous Greek statuary that evolved from it in his Introduction and in the book's first Chapter. George Seferis, a Greek Diplomat and Ambassador to the UK, and one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, was the first Greek ever to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature. Both he and British author Rex Warner - to whom Seferis presumably presented the book - were deeply interested in all things related to Cyprus, thus explaining both the giving of the book by Seferis to Warner and the single line written by under Seferis's signature. Copies of Longworth's books signed by him are quite scarce (this Limited Edition was not called to be signed), as are books signed by George Seferis. This copy, of course, carries both signatures and also constitutes a nice association between two noted authors, the Nobel Laureate George Seferis and the noted author and translator Rex Warner.

Precious dedica autografa firmata dall'autore Micheline (Deshayes), situato e datato "Meudon 1954". Micheline Deshayes è un ballerino stella, amico di Céline e Lucette Destouches per oltre dieci anni. Ci sono circa la sua critica di uno dei suoi spettacoli al Grand Theatre de Reims nel 1956 Guida Concerto: "I ballerini due stelle di alta classe (...) hanno guadagnato un grande successo soprattutto nel preludio Liszt dove Micheline Deshayes ammirare a finire la sua tecnica al servizio di una grazia così delicato come la luce. " Celine passione per la danza e ballerini nato nel 1915 a Londra Music Hall, e rapidamente diventa costitutiva della sua vita come il suo lavoro. On Elizabeth Craig, sua moglie 1926 - 1933, il viaggio dedicatario Lucette Almanzor (con la quale si sposò nel 1944), e la sua amica Karen Marie Jensen, il più importante nella vita di Celine donne ballerini. Celine appare regolarmente nella sua corrispondenza per l'importanza che per lui questa forma d'arte, "è impossibile vivere senza danza" e "ballare tutta qui - Nietzsche (se sopravvalutato) aveva ragione - 'I credere in un dio, se ballo 'se si ragiona che pedante a scuola! " (Vedere le specifiche di Herne 3 e 5). Dal 1933, ha composto numerosi balletti cercò invano di riprodurre. Come H. Godard, che dedica un capitolo della sua biografia (Gallimard 2011 p.222 - 231) note, ballare Celine è "un bisogno esistenziale (...) ha il potere di alleviare la sua sofferenza intima causato dalla sua visione così buia dell'uomo e della vita ". E conclude: «ballerini Celine aiutano a sopportare la violenza [del mondo] (...), così come quelli che suscitavano in lui in cambio." E il suo pamphlet, "sciocchezze" è lui apre l'immagine della comunione con il mondo di "raffinatezza": "In gamba di un ballerino del mondo, le sue onde, i suoi ritmi, le sue follie, i suoi voti sono I vostri commenti scritto ... Mai! ... La poesia più sfumato nel mondo! ... (...) La poesia incredibile, caldo e fragile come un equilibrio gamba ballerina in movimento è in linea, Gutman mio amico, ascolta il più grande segreto è Dio (...) Non voglio lavorare per i ballerini di danza ... tutto ". Seguire i testi di due balletti Céline: "Nascita di una fata e" Thug Paul, Virginia coraggiosi ". Contrappeso alla violenza della narrazione, danza riappare alla fine del pamphlet con un nuovo balletto" Van Bagaden " il testo che chiude il libro Cammino della Riconciliazione (impossibile?) Celine con il mondo è attraverso la danza che esprime la terribile ammissione di fallimento del viaggio. "Abbiamo molta più musica si alla danza di vita, che "Ma è anche la danza che assicura la funzione di risparmio della scrittura". testo [deve] essere ballare, fermo sul bordo della morte, ma non rientrano All'interno "(nota a uno dei suoi traduttori, vedi H. Godard, p. 226).

On retrouve à son propos la critique d'une de ses prestations au Grand théâtre de Reims dans le Guide du Concert de 1956: "Les deux danseurs étoiles de grande classe (...) se sont taillés un beau succès en particulier dans les préludes de Liszt où Micheline Deshayes fit admirer le fini de sa technique mise au service d'une grâce aussi sensible que légère".La passion de Céline pour la danse et les danseuses naît en 1915 dans les Music - Hall londoniens, et devient rapidement constitutive de sa vie comme de son oeuvre. D'Elisabeth Craig, sa compagne de 1926 à 1933, dédicataire du Voyage à Lucette Almanzor (avec laquelle il se marie en 1944), et sa grande amie Karen Marie Jensen, les femmes les plus importantes de la vie de Céline sont des danseuses. Céline témoigne régulièrement dans sa correspondance de l'importance que revêt pour lui cette forme artistique: "il m'est impossible de vivre sans la danse" et "danser tout est là - Nietzsche (si surfait) ne se trompait pas - 'je ne croirai a un dieu que s'il danse' s'il raisonne ce cuistre à l'école !" (cf. cahiers de l'Herne n° 3 et 5). Dès 1933, il compose plusieurs ballets qu'il tentera vainement de faire jouer. Comme le souligne H. Godard qui y consacre un chapitre de sa biographie (Gallimard, 2011, p.222 - 231), la danse constitue pour Céline "un besoin existentiel (...) elle a le pouvoir d'alléger en lui la souffrance intime causée par sa vision si noire de l'homme et de la vie". Et il conclut: "les danseuses aident Céline à supporter les violences [du monde] (...) aussi bien que celles qu'elles suscitaient chez lui en retour."Ainsi son pamphlet, "Bagatelles" s'ouvre - t - il sur cette image de communion avec le monde, de "raffinement" : "Dans une jambe de danseuse le monde, ses ondes, tous ses rythmes, ses folies, ses voeux sont inscrits ! ... Jamais écrits !... Le plus nuancé poème du monde !... (...) Le poème inouï, chaud et fragile comme une jambe de danseuse en mouvant équilibre est en ligne, Gutman mon ami, aux écoutes du plus grand secret, c'est Dieu !(...) Je ne veux plus travailler que pour les danseuses... Tout pour la danse !". Suivent les textes de deux ballets de Céline : "Naissance d'une fée et "Voyou Paul, brave Virginie ". Contrepoids à la violence de la narration, la danse réapparaît à la fin du pamphlet avec un nouveau ballet : "Van Bagaden", dont le texte clôt le livre.Voie de la réconciliation (impossible?) de Céline avec le monde, c'est à travers la danse qu'il formule le terrible constat d'échec du Voyage: "On n'a plus beaucoup de musique en soi pour faire danser la vie, voilà." Mais c'est aussi la danse qui assure la fonction salvatrice de l'écriture : "Le texte [doit] être danse, se tenir toujours au bord de la mort, mais ne pas tomber dedans" (note à un de ses traducteurs, cf. H. Godard, p. 226).Le premier feuillet a été mal découpé par le dédicataire ayant occasionné de légers manques marginaux sans gravité, ex - dono de la dédicataire en tête de la page de faux - titre.Rare et précieux envoi autographe signé de Louis - Ferdinand Céline à une danseuse qui lui témoigna toujours son amitié malgré ses avanies.(références bibliographiques: Henri Godard, Céline, Gallimard, 2011; Jacques Lecarme.
