        Nash Palomino Concept Art

      1954. Mixed media on paper. Signed and dated "Arbib '54" "A great automotive designer..." (Coachbuilt) 1954 was the year the Hudson and Nash-Kelvinator Corporations merged to form American Motors, with Nash as the predominating partner. The design demonstrates the somewhat prosaic virtues of Nash but also one of the waves of the future: Compact cars. Sturdy and practical, Arbib's "Palomino" rejects both the pretentiousness and the sexiness of much car design of the period. This design, features of which were incorporated into designs of the next 30 years, has a "good American citizen" quality that has always had an audience, though oddly enough it was commandeered by Volkswagen and later Toyota and Honda. Richard Arbib was a tireless industrial designer whose work ranged from watches to yachts, and included many lasting automotive innovations. Born in Gloversville, New York of Egyptian parentage, he attended Pratt. He worked on GM's exhibition at the 1939 World's Fair and then various automotive designers until he set up his own firm in the 1960's, having taken time during World War II to work on bomber design. Scharf, Richard H. Arbib 1917-1995 Visionary American Designer . 2006.

        Strange Concept Car with Beautiful Woman

      1954. Mixed media on charcoal gray composition board. Signed "R. Arbib '54" Highly imaginative concept car by Richard Arbib This unusual, bird-like front design was conceived of and drawn by Richard Arbib. It is clearly a notion derived from something other than other cars and represents an invitation to a world of creature-like vehicles that car manufacturers turned down. It is enticingly odd, and the beautiful, laughing woman leaning against it seems to be there to reassure the fearful viewer. If someone that beautiful and well-dressed is comfortable with it, why shouldn't I?

        Concept Design for the Lincoln Continental (?)

      1954. Mixed media on brown composition board with gum arabic. Signed and dated "Hammond 6 - 8- 54" A beautiful concept for a large, two door luxury car The name and logo on the car are so vague that it is not clear whether this beautifully drawn concept is for the Lincoln Continental or not, but it certainly could be. A long, slightly downward sloping line runs from the headlight to the backlight, similar to the Ford Fairlane, but this a larger, more aggressive car with a long hood that comes to a point over a pointed front bumper. The roof is a small missile-like figure. The chrome back fenders and hubcaps add to the richness, as does the two-tone, cappuccino and brown coloring.

        Autograph Letter Signed By Harry S. Truman to Dean Acheson.

      Kansas City, Missouri, 1954. Autograph letter signed by Harry S. Truman to Dean Acheson. Five pages, with 2 page transcription of Acheson's 19 October response Truman recounts his near death from an infected gall bladder that required emergency, life-saving surgery, and reflects on his changing popular reputation. "Went to our outdoor theater [on June 19] in Swope Park to see 'Call Me Madam,' which I've never seen (and don't want to)." Truman, in fact, was going to appear in a cameo at the end of the play. But he never made it. While waiting to come on "A pain overtook me which I couldn't stop with all the will power I could exercise and the 'Boss' drove me home." Admitted into the hospital, the "Doc told me that the white corpuscles were increasing at the rate of 1000 an hour and that a little butchering would be necessary. I wrote a codicil to my will and went out - I mean out. They gave me about five or ten gallons of anti-biotics by sticking needles in veins. But they just couldn't kill me." His wife Bess "says I'm worse than a Bridge Club Lady--talk about my operation and bore people to death." He also talks about the difficult task of getting his memoirs published, with an impatient publisher waiting for the promised 300,000 words by the spring of 1954. But the hospital was flooded with flowers during his convalescence and Truman was touched by the genuine concerns expressed for "this still controversial former President." No one, he tells Acheson, "knew the travails of what we went through in those years from Apr. 12, 1945 to Jan. 20, 1953 as did you, Gen. Marshall, [Treasury Secretary] John Snyder and [Secretary of Agriculture] Charlie Brannan." A lengthy, revealing letter about Truman's near death experience.

        Live and Let Die (a James Bond novel)

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1954., 1954. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE. Publisher's black cloth-effect paper over boards, embossed in gilt, with purple dust-wrapper. Gilt to binding is not dulled (as often found), edges clean, without the usual toning. Jacket shows a little edgewear and the mildest of toning to rear panel. Would be fine, but for price-clipping to front flap (although the original price of 10/6 is still present on the rear flap). A striking example of the the variant with the correct 'author's skill' text and the small section of purple colour which has crept onto the front flap, as described in the bibliography, page 61. ...Beautiful, fortune-telling Solitaire is the prisoner (and tool) of Mr. Big - master of fear, artist in crime, and Voodoo Baron of Death. James Bond has no time for superstition - he knows that Big is also a top SMERSH operative and a real threat. More than that, after tracking him through the jazz joints of Harlem to the Everglades and on the Caribbean, 007 has realized that Mr. Big is one of the most dangerous men he has ever faced, and nobody,not even the enigmatic Solitaire, can be sure how their battle of wills is going to end.

        Zur Quantenmechanik der Stossvorgange" ("Quantum Mechanics of Collision") in Zeitschrift für Physik 37 pp. 863-867, 1926). "Quantenmechanik der Stossvorgange" in Zeitschrift für Physik 38 pp. 803-827, 1926. "Das Adiabatenprinzip in der Quantenmechanik" ("The Adiabatic Principle in Quantum Mechanics") in Zeitschrift für Physik 40 pp. 167-192, 1926)

      FIRST EDITIONS OF ALL THREE PAPERS DEVELOPING MAX BORN'S REVOLUTIONARY STATISTICAL INTERPRETATION OF QUANTUM MECHANICS, also known as the probability interpretation of the wave function, or the probabilistic interpretation of the Schrodinger wave function. Born argues - an argument that would lead directly to Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle -- that quantum mechanics "could be understood as a probability without any causal explanation" (Wikipedia), prompting Einstein to reply in a letter to Born that "He [God] does not throw dice". Born came to his decisive breakthrough in understanding wave function when, "in a paper on the scattering of electrons from atoms, [he] observed that the most obvious interpretation of the wave function is that it represents the probability of finding the electron at a given location. More precisely, he added almost off-handedly in a footnote, its square represents probability, and this observation is now called the Born Rule" (Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 58). In his "precise and very detailed" second paper, "Quantenmechanik der Stossvorgange," Born"states that matrix mechanics started out from the assumption that it is impossible in principle to exactly describe a process in space and time… In wave mechanics Schrödinger had tried to construct 'wave groups' [now called wave packets], which have small dimensions in all directions and obviously are supposed to represent the moving particle'. Instead, he proposes to try a third interpretation and to test its usefulness on scattering processes" (Brandt, The Harvest of the Century, 170). Born summarizes his interpretation with "The motion of a particle follows probability laws but the probability propagates according to the laws of causality." The third paper, "Das Adiabatenprinzip in der Quantenmechanik," is Born's further development on the statistical interpretation of quantum mechanics; here introducing the concept of quantum tunneling. Born won the Nobel prize in 1954 for "his fundamental research in quantum mechanics, especially for the statistical interpretation of the wave function" (Nobel Committee). ALSO INCLUDED: In Volume 37, O. Klein, "Quantentheorie und fünfdimensionale Relativitätstheorie" ZfP 37 (1926) pp. 895 [Kline's part of Klein-Gordon equation] + Bothe, Walther (1926).

        This Island Earth (Original screenplay for the 1955 film)

      Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1954. Final script for the 1955 film, based on the story "The Alien Machine" by Raymond F. Jones, later expanded into a novel with the same title as the film. Along with "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (1951) and "Forbidden Planet" (1956), "This Island Earth" stands as one of the most intelligent and elaborate science fiction films of the 1950s, and indeed holds up today as one of the great genre films of the twentieth century, most especially on the basis of speculative fiction--a dimension that most science fiction films fail to penetrate. Peach studio wrappers, noted as FINAL SCREENPLAY on the front wrapper, and dated January 21, 1954. Holograph pencil notation "Director Joe Newman" is present on the front wrapper in an unknown hand. Several leaves precede the title page, including a cast list (meaning that this script was likely the very last revision), and two subsequent leaves noting name changes of characters. Title page present, with a credit for screenwriter Coen. 109 leaves, mimeograph, with blue and pink revision pages throughout, dated variously between 1/28/54 and 2/11/54. Pages and wrapper about Near Fine, bound with two gold brads.

        Live and Let Die (a James Bond novel)

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1954., 1954. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE. Publisher's black cloth-effect paper over boards, embossed in gilt, with purple dust-wrapper. Gilt to binding is not dulled (as often found), edges clean, without the usual toning. Jacket shows a little edgewear and the mildest of toning to rear panel. Would be fine, but for price-clipping to front flap (although the original price of 10/6 is still present on the rear flap). A striking example of the the variant with the correct 'author's skill' text and the small section of purple colour which has crept onto the front flap, as described in the bibliography, page 61. ...Beautiful, fortune-telling Solitaire is the prisoner (and tool) of Mr. Big - master of fear, artist in crime, and Voodoo Baron of Death. James Bond has no time for superstition - he knows that Big is also a top SMERSH operative and a real threat. More than that, after tracking him through the jazz joints of Harlem to the Everglades and on the Caribbean, 007 has realized that Mr. Big is one of the most dangerous men he has ever faced, and nobody,not even the enigmatic Solitaire, can be sure how their battle of wills is going to end.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1954., 1954. First Issue, Second State. SIGNED by the illustrator Kenneth Lewis, with added inscription 'the dust jacket artist'. Publisher's black cloth-effect paper-covered boards, titled and decorated in gilt, with original dustwrapper crediting artist Kenneth Lewis to the front flap. The jacket is in the final proof-state with unclipped corners and correct spacing within the Irish Times quote on the rear panel. The front flap features a portion of the printer's guide colour marker-dot. This is the second state of the first issue, with Lewis' credit appearing 27mm below the final line of blurb on the front flap immediately below the blurb on the front flap, about two-thirds down. A very good copy; both book and jacket exhibiting some acceptable general wear, gilt to the covers remains bright, bumped at crown, jacket with a few small chips to extremities, clean rear panel. A very good example with impeccable provenance; I was fortunate enough to make the acquanitance of illustrator Ken Lewis whilst researching the bibliographical nuances of Ian Fleming.

        1954 Fritz Fischer Manuskript Zeichnungen Handschrift Zschokke Prophetenspiegel

Bl., mit 40 Original-Tuschfeder-Zeichnungen beiliegt ein Zeitungsausschnitt über Fritz Fischer und vorliegendes Manuskript; Verfasser Dr. Klasmeier (Hausschatz / Lies mich - Nr. 22; 1957) sehr gut erhalten Fritz Fischer war Schüler von Alois Kolb und Walter Tiemann an der Kunstakademie Leipzig. Seine erste Ausstellung hatte er während seiner Studienzeit, nach dessen Abschluss arbeitete er als Pressezeichner für die»Neue Leipziger Zeitung«. 1935 vermittelte ihm Gotthard de Beauclair die erste Buchillustration für den Insel Verlag (Wilhelm Hauff - Das kalte Herz). Die Vorgehensweise von Fritz Fischer war folgende:Er schrieb den gesamten Text der Vorlage ab um sich so dem literarischen Kunstwerk zu nähern.»Auf den ersten Blick mag das in unserer eiligen Zeit unsinnig und unrationell erscheinen. Für mich ist es aber der kürzeste Weg, um zu einem Ergebnis zu gelangen, denn während des Abschreibens dringe ich sehr viel tiefer [.] ein, als es beim bloßen Lesen möglich ist. Das Entscheidende ist aber, daß bei einer solchen Arbeitsweise das Bild organisch aus der Schrift erwächst«(Weltstimme, Jahrgang 27. 1958. zit. nach Badorrek a. a. O., S. [6]). Texte und Bilder bilden somit eine Einheit. Die gedruckten Bücher können diesetypographisch meist nicht wiedergeben.Der Künstler suchte sich die Vorlagen in den meisten Fällen selbst ausund erfüllte selten Verlagsinteressen. Erst nachdem ein Manuskript fertiggestellt war, machte er sich daran, Publikationsmöglichkeiten zu finden. Ein Großteil seines Werkes blieb so unveröffentlicht. Es gibt keine Druckgrafik von ihm.

        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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Existence of an Equilibrium for a Competitive Economy

      1954 - ARROW, Kenneth J. and DEBREU, Gerard. “Existence of an Equilibrium for a Competitive Economy.” IN: Econometrica, Volume 22, Number 3, pp. 265-90. Chicago, Illinois: Econometric Society, University of Chicago, July 1954. Octavo, original gray paper wrappers. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $3500.First edition of the journal issue containing the first appearance of the groundbreaking article containing one of the first simple proofs of the existence of a competitive equilibrium, the Arrow-Debreu Existence Theorem, a major piece of the work for which Arrow and Debreu were awarded their Nobel Prizes in economics.This journal contains the paper illustrating one of the first simple proofs of existence of a competitive equilibrium: the Arrow-Debreu Existence Theorem. “Each year, new economics Ph.D. students learn the proof of the existence of a competitive equilibrium as if a rite of passage… While there are a number of proofs that establish the existence of such an equilibrium, the validity of these proofs is indubitable. Indeed, economists with even scant knowledge of the history of economics can identify Kenneth J. Arrow and Gerard Debreu’s Econometrica paper as having provided the proof that settled the issue. That 1954 paper, ‘On the Existence of an Equilibrium for a Competitive Economy’ appeared to bring closure to an argument that was (at least) two centuries old… The Arrow-Debreu model was a major accomplishment; it presented an economy composed of individual self-interested agentsâ€"both utility maximizing households and profit equilibrium in which all choices were potentially reconciled. Put briefly, the pursuit of individual self-interest could lead not to social chaos but to a coordinated social order” (Weintraub & Gayer, 421-42). “Debreu and I both started applying Kakutani’s fixed point theorem to the problem of existence. In this case, we exchanged manuscripts in sufficient time to realize our common efforts and also to realize the need for relaxing an excessively severe assumption we had both made” (Arrow, Nobel Lecture 1972). “In our article of 1954, 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 fifties, the time had undoubtedly come for solutions of the existence problem” (Debreu, Nobel Lecture 1983). The Nobel Prize was ultimately awarded to Hicks and Arrow in 1972 “for their pioneering contributions to general economic equilibrium theory and welfare theory.” It was awarded to Debreu in 1983 “for having incorporated new analytical methods into economic theory and for his rigorous reformulation of the theory of general equilibrium.” Owner stamp on front wrapper of Vanderbilt University economics professor Fred M.

        Howaldtswerke Hamburg A. G. - "Al-Malik Saud Al-Awal" - Stapellauf am 5.6.1954. Photographienalbum.

      Hamburg 1954 - Titelblatt und 10 Orig.-Photographien auf 10 Tafelblättern. 4°, geprägter Orig.-Broschur mit Kordelbindung. Dokumentation des Stapellaufes der Al-Malik Saud Al-Awal, dem damals weltgrößten Öldampfer, erbaut in den Hamburger Howaldtswerken im Auftrag des Reeders Aristoteles Onassis für Saudi-Arabien! Mit 10 großformatigen Oiginal-Photographien. Die Photos ohne Photographen-Stempel- oder Eintrag, es könnte sich aber um den Hamburger Photographen Erich Andres (1905-1992) handel, von dem weitere Photographien dieses Stapellaufes existieren! Im Gegensatz zum Datum 3.6. des Stapellaufs (u.a. bei Wikipedia), steht auf dem Titel dieser Ausgabe 5.6.! - Die "Al-Malik Saud Al-Awal" hatte eine Tragfähigkeit von 50.000 Tonnen - das war damals ein absoluter Rekord und löste damit die "Tina Onassis" ab, das Schwesterschiff, das ein Jahr vorher vom Stapel lief. Beauftragt wurde der Bau von beiden Tankern durch Aristoteles Onassis, einem der größten Reeder der Welt und zweiter Ehemann von Kennedy-Witwe Jackie. Wir konnten einige privaten Photos im Internet von John Holler (1909 -1996) nachweisen. Diese hier vorliegenden scheinen aber offiziell von den Howaldtswerken in Auftrag gegeben worden. - Die Al-Malik Saud Al-Awal ließ Onassis für die Saudis erbauen, sie sollte als Flaggschiff der saudiarabischen Tankerflotte dienen. Durch skandalumwitterte Geschäftspraktiken, bei denen auch mit Geheimtinte unterschriebene Verträge, deren Unterschriften nach einiger Zeit verblasst sein sollen, blieb der Tanker einige Wochen bei den Howaldtswerken auf Reede und wurde dann aus Geldnot an die Ölfirma Aramco verchartert, womit das Geschäft mit den Saudis plötzlich zu kippen drohte. Der Stapellauf wurde scheinbar dennoch sehr pompös feierlich begangen. Die Photos zeigen u.a. Onassis mit Familie, Howaldtmitarbeiter, einige Saudis und einen beeindruckenden Fuhrpark vor den Howaldtswerken sowie natürlich den Stapellauf, die Taufe etc. - Die Photos am oberen Rand auf feste Kartonsgeklebt. Die Broschurverso an der oberen rechten Ecke mit Fehlstelle (ca. 3x3 cm) und leichteren Knickspuren, schwach berieben. Auf dem Vorderdeckel erhaben geprägt, das Firmenlogo der Howaldtswerke. Von uns nicht nachweisbar! - Erich Andres war ab 1932 als Bildjournalist tätig. 1937 photographierter er auf faschistischer Seite im spanischen Bürgerkrieg, von 1939-45 war er PK-Photograph für die Marine, nach 1945 arbeitete er mit mit Roman Stempka beim "Spiegel".
