Cairo: al-Maaref Press, 1955. Memorial of the Government of Saudi Arabia. Arbitration for the settlement of the territorial dispute between Muscat and Abu Dhabi on the one side and Saudi Arabia on the other. 3 vols. Folio. 539 pp., 343 pp.,624 pp. Numerous illustrations. Original binding , 4 large folding maps housed in map pocket in vol. II, first edition, 1955. The documents here presented are those representing the Saudi argument. Abdel Rahman Azzam (Azzam Pasha), a firebrand Arab nationalist who first accused Britain of stealing Arab oil in the region, here acts as the agent of King Saud. In fact, this Memorial was the work of the historical section of Aramco, headed by George Rentz. It seeks to legitimize Saudi claims to the disputed territory through the production of tax records paid by tribesmen. The counter-argument held that these payments were little more than extortion. In very good condition, previous owner (?) labels to bottom of spines, some rubbing to covers, minor damage on spine of vol.3, all text and photographic plates very good. Please email with any questions. [Attributes: First Edition]

New York, Ballantine, 1955. First Edition. First Impression. A very good copy. The white of the jacket generally bright but with a few areas of rubbing, red to spine a little faded and a short closed tear to the top. Some bumping to the spine tips. Boards in decent shape with just a little bumping to the tips. Probably Currey's binding B (dull red cloth), state 2 (logo correct orientation on spine). Could be binding C (red cloth) though as it's hard to distinguish the cloth types. Either way, there's no priority established. This copy is signed by Bradbury to the title page, but also inscribed by Joe Mugnaini "to [???] \ Joe Mugnaini" - see image. Mugnaini's name has been underlined too, given the pen, probably by Bradbury. A nice copy and signed by both. Cover art / illustrations by Joe Mugnaini [5562, Hyraxia Books].All items will be packed in bubble-wrap and either a cardboard book-wrap or a box where appropriate.

OUR COLLECTION OF WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS WAS PURCHASED FROM THE HOME IN VENTNOR THE CITY NEXT TO OUR GREAT ATLANTIC CITY. Roland De Hellebranth A Doctor who performed surgeries at home and sisters Bertha de Hellebranth and Elena were born into a cultured upper-class family in Budapest, Bertha in 1899, Elena in 1897. Their father was a lawyer and their mother a student of Franz Liszt's last living pupil. They studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Budapest, at the Académie Julian and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, and painted portraits of European nobility. As Patricia Fazekas points out, Growing up in a family of privilege, they seemed to have unusual access to many illustrious people. So we should not be surprised to find among their subjects members of high society, such as Count Andrássy Gyula, the Russian-born Princess Baby Galitzine, and Admiral Horthy Miklós, the Regent. Later on, their subjects included American heiress Gladys Vanderbilt (Countess László Széchenyi), President Theodore Roosevelt's granddaughter Paulina Longworth and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Often, the sisters would paint the same subject at the same time, offering the sitter a choice of portraits. Most often, the sitter w … [Click Below for Full Description]

TITLE: The Urantia Book (revealing the mysteries of god, the universe, world history, jesus and ourselves) PUBLISHER: Urantia Foundation TOPIC: Occult, Religion & Spirituality DATE: 1955 BINDING: Hardcover with Dust Jacket PRINTING: 1st Edition, 1st Printing LANGUAGE: English PAGES: 2097 ORIGIN: Chicago, Illinois (USA) CONDITION: Very Good (no handwriting, no underlining, no signatures) DESCRIPTION: Robert Burton, an attorney and member of the First Society of the Urantia Foundation, to Dr. Strangio discussing a wayward copy of the Urantia Book, and inviting Dr. & Mrs. Strangio to join them for their weekly meeting in Chicago, and offering to meet them personally in northern Indiana [ Burton had a place in Three Oaks, Michigan, nearby], and enclosing examples of the brochures or flyers "that I use to introduce the Urantia Book to new friends." The Urantia Book, first published by Urantia Foundation in 1955, was written in the form of a revelation by celestial beings. Many who have read it accept it as such -- and of course many do not. The facts about how it was reduced to written form are unknown. However, regardless of the reader's approach to the text, the contents of the book are of real interest to all who are exploring the realms of religion and philosophy, or who are working on their own personal spiritual growth. The book's material covers a broad spectrum of inquiry -- from the genesis, history, and destiny of the human race, to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hughes, Langston; DeCarava, Roy [Photographs]
New York: Simon and Schuster, 1955. First Edition. First edition, first printing, hardcover issue. Signed and inscribed by Langston Hughes on the front free endpaper. Very Good with toning, in a Very Good unclipped dust jacket, frayed along the edges and toned. DeCarava had won a 1953 Guggenheim Fellowship to photograph African American life in Harlem. It was a chance meeting on a Manhattan street corner in which DeCarava showed his photographs to Hughes. Hughes was so enamored with these photographs he immediately took them to his publisher, who agreed to publish them so long as Hughes wrote accompanying text. The result, a beautiful and vibrant visual encapsulation of life in 1950s Harlem, strung together with a textual narrative by a leading light of the Harlem Renaissance. Very Good / Very Good.
