        [Photo Album]: African-American Sailor Richard E. Young Aboard the U.S.S. Hornet, Korean War Armistice

      Various places, 1954. Near Fine. Oblong folio. Measuring 14" x 11". Full black rivet-bound leatherette, upper cover lettered "Photograph Album" in olive green. Contains 276 original gelatin silver photographs, mostly measuring approximately 3" x 4.5", most are neatly captioned in white album ink. Very good with boards a bit rubbed, some shallow scratches to the covers, most leaves neatly reinforced along the extremities with masking tape; photographs in just about fine condition.The album is devoted to a single year in the life of Richard E. Young, U.S. Navy Service No. 223-76-10. On the front pastedown is a memorial to Young's former shipmate with fighter squadron VF-41, P.A. Davis of Beaumont, Texas, who was killed in an explosion aboard the U.S.S. Bennington. The explosion, caused by an ignited catapult leak which killed 103 men, took place while Young was on vacation in Jacksonville, Florida in May, 1954. The album begins with Young's departure from Key West, Florida en route to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba with photographs of the plane and the sailors disembarking. The images of Cuba and Florida are of landscapes, fishing trips, and bar scenes, with the men making friends in Cuba and the Dominican Republic, mostly with the women of the local community, such as a "Gitmo doll" enjoying a bottle of Coke (indeed, the ladies occupy a significant role in the present collection). The U.S.S. Hornet did not embark on its world tour until May of 1954, the photographs from the month preceding the departure showing Young with friends and family in Virginia and Florida, enjoying Easter Sunday, and picnicking on the beach with a newly slaughtered hog. Though most of the photographs taken by Young as a civilian are in Florida and Virginia, we do find one small snapshot of him mowing the lawn "At home in Oakland." Young's photographs are largely devoted to local color and civilian life, including nights out dancing with Portuguese girls in Lisbon, seeing the giraffes at the zoo in Ceylon, watching an elephant get a bath along the riverfront of an unnamed village elsewhere in India, and a naked dancer in Japan ("Gipsy Rose Lee has nothing on this gal"). Only occasional photographs of the U.S.S. Hornet and her crew are shown in action, including a single page showing "Ships at Sea." We do know that in July the ship supported planes from the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Philippine Sea while they shot down two attacking Chinese fighters. However, the photographs from this collection taken from the ship include only views as the Hornet passed through the Suez Canal and a "Royal Party" as the ship crossed the equator, complete with men in various costumes - in drag, dressed as a baby, and many others dressed in powdered wigs. The last portion of the album includes a number of portraits of Young's shipmates of both races, many taken at a Divisional Party in Japan, in November of 1954. The last leaf of the album is entirely devoted to 15 self-portraits of Young, both in uniform and in his bathing trunks: "These are just some of me. Upon so many requests, I decided to make some pictures of my self." A better than usually personal album depicting Naval activities shortly after the desegregation of the Armed Forces.

Il se compose de : 1 faux-titre, 1 frontispice à l'encre noire d'après un dessin de Verlaine, 1 titre avec petite vignette en couleurs, 6 compositions à pleine page en couleurs, 6 feuillets de texte avec petits ornements "typographiques" au pinceau, 1 cul-de-lampe en forme de bouquet dans un vase et 1 "imprimatur" où apparait, sous le dessin d'une presse, le nom de l'artiste, A. J. Powilewicz. In fine se trouvent 2 projets de reliures, plat supérieur et plat inférieur, réalisés à la gouache sur papier à dessin : le second est celui qui a été retenu, un bouquet de fleurs bleues dans un vase à anses noir et rouge pour le premier plat et une petite fleur à cinq pétales dans les mêmes couleurs pour le second plat. Les couvertures provisoires et le dos, sur papier fort gris, ont été conservés. Powilewicz a conçu l'ouvrage jusque dans l'ornement des gardes, semées de petites fleurettes au crayon de couleurs emportées par le vent. A. J.

        Magnifique lettre d'Albert Cohen sur Le Livre de ma mère.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 2 In-4 (petit) 05/05/1954 En-tête gaufré à son adresse. trous de classeur Rare et très belle d'Albert Cohen après la publication du Livre de ma mère. "Six heures du matin, tasse de thé chaud, cigarette, et votre lettre devant moi. Petit sentiment de bonheur. Vous avez donc pensé à moi. C'est bien. Je suis content aussi que vous aimiez le Livre de ma mère [.]. Vous avez deviné certaines choses que j'étais seul à connaître". Il est heureux d'apprendre que Félicien Marceau va publier un article sur son livre dans la Table Ronde. "Il y en a eu de bienveillants déjà. On m'en annonce d'autres. Mais le vôtre sera le plus beau, je le sais. Donc merci. Je viens de lire dans les Lettres Françaises un long feuilleton sur mon livre. Il est méchant et par endroits curieusement élogieux. L'auteur du feuilleton, M. André Wurmser, dit qu'il aime et n'aime pas mon livre. Il me reproche de n'avoir pas écrit un livre raisonnable ; ou peut-être, au fond, de n'être pas communiste. Bien sûr que je vous ferai signe quand je reviendrai à Paris. Ce sera dans quelques semaines, en juin. Peut-être serai-je capable de vous dire alors, mieux que je n'ai su le faire à notre première rencontre (j'avais une grande migraine) combien j'admire vos livres, vos chers livres, avec quel ravissement complice je les ai lus et relus [.]. Je vous dis mon plaisir de vous connaître enfin, ma sympathie, mon admiration". L'un des plus grands romanciers du XXe siècle, auteur de Belle du seigneur. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        On Equilibrium in Graham's Model of World Trade. IN: Econometrica

      1954. First Edition . MCKENZIE, Lionel. ""On Equilibrium in Graham's Model of World Trade and Other Competitive Systems."" IN: Econometrica, Volume 22, Number 2, pp. 147-61. Chicago: Waverly Press, April, 1954. Large octavo, original gray paper wrappers. $2200.First edition of McKenzie's compelling work on the existence of a competitive equilibrium, one of his greatest contributions to economics.""In our article of 1954 (Arrow & Debreu, 'Existence of an Equilibrium for a Competitive Economy,' Econometrica, Vol. 22, No. 3, July 1954, pp. 265-90), Arrow and I cast a competitive economy in the form of a social system of the preceding type. The agents are the consumers, the producers, and a fictitious price-setter. An appropriate definition of the set of reactions of the price-setter to an excess demand vector makes the concept of equilibrium for that social system equivalent to the concept of competitive equilibrium for the original economy. In this manner a proof of existence, resting ultimately on Kakutani's theorem, was obtained for an equilibrium of an economy made up of interacting consumers and producers. In the early '50s, the time had undoubtedly come for solutions of the existence problem. In addition to the work of Arrow and me, begun independently and completed jointly, Lionel McKenzie at Duke University proved the existence of a 'Equilibrium in Graham's Model of World Trade and Other Competitive Systems' [1954], also using Kakutan's Theorem"" (Gerard Debreu, 'Economic theory in the mathematical mode,' Nobel Memorial Lecture, 8 December, 1983). ""Professor McKenzie's contributions were to 'high mathematical theory—the nuts and bolts of what economists learn—the core of their craft,' says E. Roy Weintraub, professor of economics at Duke University who has written a retrospective on Professor McKenzie's work. He was the first to provide the now most widely employed proof for how economies, through competitive pricing, find a state in which the amount of every good supplied is equal to the demand, a condition economists call general equilibrium, says Professor Weintraub. 'Every economics graduate student today has to learn that proof'… During his career he published more than 45 academic papers, including the seminal study, 'On Equilibrium in Graham's Model of World Trade and Other Competitive Systems'"" (University of Rochester). Owner stamp of Vanderbilt economist Fred M. Westfield on front wrapper. Westfield was known for his expertise in regulation and vertical integration.Interior fine, minor rubbing and toning to extremities of wrappers.

        Correspondance de Jean Effel sur La Création du Monde.

      - 3 lettres autographes signées 6 In-4 vers 1954-1955 pliures, papier un peu jauni. Intéressante correspondance de Jean Effel relative à la réalisation de son long métrage d'animation, La Création du Monde, tiré de son album éponyme publié en 1951, et co-produit en Tchécoslovaquie. Il annonce son départ, avec Pachon, sa femme, pour la Tchécoslovaquie. "On fait un dessin animé, là-bas avec "la Création du Monde". Pachon visitera la belle ville [.]. Et puis je suis invité en Chine pour septembre. Je fais l'impossible pour emmener Pachon mais les Chinois n'ont pas pensé à elle"; mais pour l'heure, ils pleurent ensemble la mort de leur petit chien. "Si, des fois l'un et l'autre, l'un ou l'autre, aviez une heure à perdre, mercredi prochain, voudriez-vous la perdre à voir (et à entendre en tchèque) mon film sur la Création du monde? Du moins les deux tiers qui sont achevés? [.]. Je serai, à vrai dire, dans une réunion d'affaires, avec des "clients" pour films publicitaires [.]". Dans une longue lettre pleine d'amertume et de colère, il met au point les choses sur la collaboration de Mireille à l'écriture de la musique du film. "Ce problème, je le croyais tout simplement résolu le jour où j'ai demandé à Mireille si elle acceptait de se charger de la partition de mon film et où elle m'a répondu : oui. Or, ce problème qui est celui de notre collaboration, n'est pas résolu, alors que je le croyais. Il est grand temps qu'il le soit. Si j'ai bien compris (j'y ai mis le temps) Mireille - en mettant les choses au mieux - ne considère ce film que comme un sous-produit de ses chansons, de deux ou trois de ses chansons. A vrai dire, je pense maintenant que Mireille ne croit pas à ce film, ou - toujours en mettant les choses au mieux - qu'il est le cadet de ses soucis. S'il en est ainsi, et je le crains, Mireille n'est évidemment pas la collaboratrice que j'espérais. Vous comprendrez peut-être mieux, si renversant les rôles, vous imaginiez la même situation dans le cas de l'opérette à laquelle travaille Mireille. Supposez que son parolier, satisfait de deux ou trois de ses poèmes, ne s'occupe plus de leur carrière, de les faire éditer et réciter, même si cela doit empêcher pratiquement l'opérette d'être montée. Bref, si dans un moment où il perd le contrôle de ce qu'il dit (ça n'arrive pas qu'à moi), le parolier de Mireille lui disait par exemple : "quelle opérette? il n'y a pas d'opérette!" qu'en penserait Mireille? [.] Oui ou non, Mireille, accepte-t-elle de faire passer l'intérêt du film avant celui de deux de ses chansons? Qu'elle le dise mais vraiment, cette fois d'une façon nette et définitive [.]". Dessinateur et illustrateur, proche du Parti communiste, il reçoit le Prix Lénine pour la Paix (1968). Son véritable nom était François Lejeune (d'où FL). [Attributes: Signed Copy]
