New York, 1955. Small quarto. Measuring 7" x 10". Brad-bound brown leatherette photo album with gilt decorations. Contains 53 black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring around 3" x 3.5", some with captions. Very good with slight mustiness and spotting with near fine photographs. A photo album kept by a female student at a college in New York in the 1950s. It is unclear where she attended but her roommates and friends are photographed donning Cornell University and Cortland State (in Cortland, New York) sweatshirts throughout the album. The girls are photographed in their dorm rooms, drinking sodas, knitting, and posed together, often sitting on each other's laps and smiling. Other images show the girls around campus and participating in campus activities such as their 1952 Homecoming. One photo captioned "my birthday 1952" shows girls in a dorm bed eating ice cream. They had Christmas get-togethers, costume parties, and performances which included the compiler doing a hula dance. They are photographed around a skeleton with one woman holding an anatomy book possibly for a yearbook photo. Other images show a girl roller skating, girls studying on blankets in the sun, and on-stage at a comedy performance. A wonderful collection of photographs depicting a woman's time in college.

1955. NEW REDUCED PRICE, VERY GOOD CONDITION, OVER 60 YEARS OLD. NEW REDUCED PRICE. My father knew Frank Lloyd Wright personally and worked with him on his pre-fabricated homes. My father gave me this brochure many decades ago. He was in the redwood business in the mid-1950s, working for Simpson Timber Company of Eureka, California. (My grandfather was the President of Simpson Timber Company.) My father met with Frank Lloyd Wright in Chicago in 1955 and convinced him to use redwood battens in his pre-fabricated homes. (Redwood, as you may know, is 6/7ths water and virtually fireproof.) Around this time, my father also threw a cocktail party for Frank Lloyd Wright at the Chicago Club or the CAA, the Chicago Athletic Association. This party was documented in an issue of LOOK Magazine in the late 1950s. Eleven houses in total were built. Offering in VERY GOOD CONDITION this oversize 8-page brochure on thick coated stock advertising three different FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT designed PRE-FABRICATED HOMES. It has some minor edgewear and handling marks throughout but looks rather good considering it is 64 years old. (Please see close-up pictures for details. What you see is what you get.) Dimensions are approximately 9 1/2 inches x 12 1/2 inches. EXTREMELY RARE and ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND.

Van Vechten, Carl [photographer]
New York, 1955. Original semi-glossy borderless silver print (25 x 22.5 cm; 9 7/8 x 7 7/8 inches). Very slight residue of mounting tabs at verso corners, otherwise about fine. An excellent portrait of Mattiwilda Dobbs (July 11, 1925 - December 8, 2015) "... an African-American coloratura soprano and one of the first black singers to enjoy a major international career in opera. She was the first black singer to perform at La Scala in Italy, the first black woman to receive a long-term performance contract at the Metropolitan Opera, New York and the first black singer to play a lead role at the San Francisco Opera" - Wikipedia. With Van Vechten's characteristic blindstamp, and on the verso, his manuscript identification of the subject, the date of the session, and his negative key ("IX.mm.6") appear in ink, along with his identification stamp, address and statement of reproduction rights. A variant print from this negative is in the LC Collection, along with prints of five other poses from the same session. This print, much to its credit, is more carefully cropped than the LC print. A similar print of the same negative is in the Van Vechten collection at Yale.

Greene, Graham
1955. London: William Heinemann Ltd, (1955). Original dark blue cloth lettered in gilt, with dust jacket. First Edition of this novella about a man who devises a scheme to win big at Monte Carlo -- but his obsession causes him to lose his girl (whom he planned to marry there) in the process; with an acquaintance's help he gains the girl back, but only by losing all the money he had won -- hence "Loser Takes All." The following year appeared the British film with the same title (screenplay also by Greene) -- starring Glynis Johns, Rossano Brazzi, and Robert Morley. This is a very good copy (wear on some edges of the boards, minor fading, foxing on the top edge). The dust jacket is just about fine (a couple of short closed tears); because the jacket is in better condition than the volume, one may assume that it was "married" to this book. This is a presentation copy signed by Greene, with the inked title page inscription "For Clive | Graham Greene"; at a corner of the front paste-down is the penciled signature "Clive Hirschhorn | Johannesburg, March 1985". For over 30 years, the South African Clive Hirschhorn was a major London theatre and film critic for the Sunday Express; he also wrote biographies of Hollywood stars like Gene Kelly and of the Hollywood studios Warner Brothers, Universal, and Columbia. He was also a major collector of modern first editions (his collection, including 28 Graham Greene titles, sold at Bloomsbury in October 2012). Additionally, the front free endpaper bears the undated ink signature of Anthony Woodward, a professor of English at the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Clair, Rene (director, screenwriter); Serge Beauvarlet (still photographer); Michele Morgan, Gerarde Philipe, Jean Desailly, Brigitte Bardot (starring)
Paris: Cinedis, 1955. Collection of 867 original black-and-white keybook still photographs from the 1955 French film. Small snapshot photos pasted on thick stock in three large quarto "Lavis aquarelle" brand spiral bound notebook with maroon faux leather front wrapper and a paper title label affixed to the front wrapper. Nearly all photos numbered in holograph ink inside a small white border on the recto, and all numbered in mimeograph on the verso. One notebook full of photos crediting photographer Beauvarlet on the rectos. Director Rene's first color film, based largely on his childhood experiences. Winner of two important French film awards, the Prix Louis-Delluc and the Prix Melies. Screened out-of-competition at the 1974 Cannes Film Festival. Still photographer Beauvarlet remains uncredited for the film, perhaps overshadowed by the film's prolific cinematographer, Robert Lefebvre. Beauvarlet stuck close to Bardot throughout her career, snapping stills in "Her Bridal Night" (1956), "Naughty Girl" (1956), "La Parisienne" (1957), and "The Night Heaven Fell" (1958). His quick-draw style is amply captured here, in candid images of the cast and crew, a jovial celebrity signing, and softer, posed studio portraits. Armand (Philipe) is a lieutenant in the French cavalry just before WWI, a notorious womanizer and gambler who bets that he can seduce a woman in time for his company to being its summer maneuvers. The woman is Marie-Louise (Morgan), a divorcee who runs a milliner's shop, and who is also being courted by Victor (Desailly).

Inscribed by the author: "To John Orban with best wishes of Freddy and Walter R. Brooks." Our favorite title among the highly collectible series of books about Freddy, an intelligent pig-detective. Freddy is embroiled in the search for six missing Martians who are being forced to travel the country as a barnstorming baseball team. A significant highspot in porcine-detective literature, and exceptionally scarce signed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

WRIGHT, William.
XVI, 257, [1 blank]; VI, [1], [1 blank], XVI, 327, [1 blank] pp.First edition of what immediately became the standard English-language grammar of Arabic and one of the most important in any language, still frequently reprinted and remaining in general use. Although the title-page calls it a translation of Karl Paul Caspari's German edition, Wright's claims that he expanded and improved on his model are fully justified. His knowledge of languages extended far beyond Arabic, and his comparative linguistics in the present grammar are one of its remarkable features, offering comparisons not only with Hebrew, but also with Aramaic, Ge'ez and Phoenician, all Semitic languages. In spite of the depth of his scholarship and the grammar's 550-page length, Wright aimed it at beginners.With the stencilled owner's name Kjörbo-Smidth. In very good condition, with only occasional minor foxing and almost untrimmed. The binding is slightly scuffed and worn around the extremities, but still good. First edition of a standard Arabic grammar including comparisons with other Semitic languages.l J. Fück, Arabischen Studien in Europa (1955), pp. 205-209.

MARTIN, Frank (1921-2005)
1955. 17 pencil and charcoal drawings, one with wash and 4 with watercolour on 13 different sheets, all signed and with a handmade title page by Frank Martin including a photograph of the model Jennifer Knight-Barnard and housed in a standard art portfolio. All drawings are around 30 x 40 cms. Together with 7 larger pencil and charcoal drawings all signed by the artist of the same model at the same time, all filling paper from 57 x 38 to 63 x 45 cms. One drawing with a few tears at the edges but not affecting the image. These accomplished original life drawings of one model by Frank Martin were all done by him at his studio in the 'Italian Village', an artist's studio colony set up before the war in Fulham just by Stamford Bridge. They were all of one of his favourite models in the 1950s Jennifer Knight-Barnard. He had made a maquette of a title page in pen and ink with an original photograph of the model on the front for a projected book 'Twenty-Six Drawings of Jennifer Knight-Bernard'. The project remained unfinished and the artist gave the drawings to a friend and patron towards the end of his life. .

Quarto (12.125 x 9.375 inches; 308 x 237 mm.). Various paginations, text typically in black and white with accents in a third color throughout. Amply illustrated with full-page and in-text illustrations; usually with four or six leaves in full-color, printed separately but included in the pagination. Publisher's saddle-stapled bindings in the original illustrated self-wrappers, except for the July-August and Noël issues (perfect bindings), for the first 27 months, transitioned to perfect bindings in April 1957. Routine minor wear with soft creases along the edges or at the corners, trivial rubbing or soiling; some shallow curling along the fore-edge; a few issues with slightly more extensive wear to spines or closed tears at the joints. No. 11 centerfold detached but present, a few other issues have anomalous minor defects, like a quarter-sized splash on the front wrapper or a two-inch closed tear on the title-leaf.

City Lights, 1955. Condition: Very Good. This is the real thing: the true first edition of Pictures of the Gone World by Lawrence Ferlinghetti. City Lights Books Pocket Poets #1. Includes a laid-in bookplate signed by Ferlinghetti. Meets all first edition, first printing points according to "The City Lights Pocket Poets Series: A Descriptive Bibliography" by Ralph T. Cook: Saddle-stitched with two staples; stiff black paper wrapper printed in yellow, with a yellow hand-pasted wraparound paper label printed in black. This hand-pasted wraparound label is present only on the first printing. Published in 1955, at 65 cents. Only 500 copies printed letterpress by David Ruff. No printing notice, meaning first printing. Condition is a solid VG for this title. Only flaws are slightly soiled wrappers and somewhat rusted staples -- but the pages are completely intact and not loose at all. (Even so, you'll want to be careful when turning pages of this historic book.) Wraparound is in excellent shape, firmly glued with no peeling or chipping. Kept in fresh plastic sleeve for archival storage. Lawrence Ferlinghetti is 101 years old and living in San Francisco. There are just three copies of this first printing listed on the Internet right now. Prices will undoubtedly rise. Please review photos fully, and feel free to ask questions or request more photos. This is the keystone copy in any Ferlinghetti or Pocket Poets collection. Because this is such a rare and collectible title, insurance is included.

Greene, Graham
1955. London: William Heinemann Ltd, (1955). Original dark blue cloth lettered in gilt, with dust jacket. First Edition of this novella about a man who devises a scheme to win big at Monte Carlo -- but his obsession causes him to lose his girl (whom he planned to marry there) in the process; with an acquaintance's help he gains the girl back, but only by losing all the money he had won -- hence "Loser Takes All." The following year appeared the British film with the same title (screenplay also by Greene) -- starring Glynis Johns, Rossano Brazzi, and Robert Morley. This is a very good copy (wear on some edges of the boards, minor fading, foxing on the top edge). The dust jacket is just about fine (a couple of short closed tears); because the jacket is in better condition than the volume, one may assume that it was "married" to this book. This is a presentation copy signed by Greene, with the inked title page inscription "For Clive | Graham Greene"; at a corner of the front paste-down is the penciled signature "Clive Hirschhorn | Johannesburg, March 1985". For over 30 years, the South African Clive Hirschhorn was a major London theatre and film critic for the Sunday Express; he also wrote biographies of Hollywood stars like Gene Kelly and of the Hollywood studios Warner Brothers, Universal, and Columbia. He was also a major collector of modern first editions (his collection, including 28 Graham Greene titles, sold at Bloomsbury in October 2012).
