        Porträtfotografie von Thomas Mann. Original-Photographie von Hannes Kilian mit einkopiertem Copyright-Vermerkt in der rechten unteren Bildecke sowie dem Atelier-Stempel auf der Rückseite.

      1955 28,9 x 23,5 cm. In Passepartout montiert (PP: 42 x 32 cm). \"In der Nachkriegszeit veröffentlichte Hannes Kilian (* 13. November 1909 in Ludwigshafen am Bodensee; † 1. Dezember 1999 in Wäschenbeuren) seine Fotografien vor allem in der `Schwäbischen Illustrierten`, im `Radio-Spiegel`, im `Piguin` sowie dem amerikanischen Magazin `Heute`, das in deutscher Sprache erschien. In den 1950er Jahren profitierte er vom Boom an Radio- und Fernsehzeitschriften und der Regenbogen-Presse. In der `iwz` , der `Südwestdeutschen Illustrierten Wochenendzeitung wurden nicht nur Bildberichte, sondern auch zahlreiche Titelfotos von Kilian veröffentlicht. In diesem Magazin ... erschienen Kilians Aufnahmen auch in den folgenden beiden Jahrzehnten. Häufig arbeitete er für Stuttgarter Zeitungen sowie für `Hör zu!... Auch der `Steren` und die `Zeit`, das `Time Magazine` und `Picture Post` sowie viele andere Zeitungen im In- und Ausland veröffentlichten seine Bilder. Die Themen und Reportagen, die er illustrierte, reichen von der der Not der Bevölkerung in der Nachkriegszeit über Theater, Kunst und Film bis zu Musik, Autos, Reisen und Fußball. Der Bereich der so genannten Hochkultur wurde immer mehr zum Hauptthema der Fotografien Kilians\" (Katalog zur Ausstellung \"Bildergeschichten © Hannes Kilian. Fotografien / Reportagen 1944-1974\" im Haus der Geschichte Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart 2004). Hannes Kilians kontrastreiche Schwarz-Weiß-Aufnahmen, mit denen er zu einem der bedeutendsten Fotografen Deutschlands avancierte, dokumentieren Geschichte über mehr als ein halbes Jahrhundert hinweg. Sie stehen darüber hinaus für ein Lebenswerk, das weit über den Zeitbezug hinausweist und allgemeingültige ästhetische Akzente setzt\" (aus einer Besprechung des Kataloges zur Kilian-Ausstellung Berlin 2009 / Stuttgart 2012). Thomas und Katia Mann hielten sich Anfang Mai 1955 in Stuttgart auf, wo Thomas Mann am 8. Mai 1955 bei der Gedenkfeier zu Schillers 150. Todestag im Großen Haus des Württembergischen Staatstheaters seine Rede \"Versuch über Schiller\" hielt. \"Die Erschöpfung nach dem Vortrag ist Thomas Mann noch auf der Fotografie anzusehen, die Hannes Kilian am 9. Mai 1955 bei einem Empfang des Publizisten Rudolf Pechel machte. Drei Monate vor seinem Tod scheint sich der Schriftsteller an Glas un Zigarette förmlich festzuhalten\" (oben zitierter Katalog Stuttgart 2004, Seite 54, mit einer Abbildung der vorliegenden Photographie auf Seite 55).

        K2 Italia. Serie Fotografico.’ A complete set of lobby cards with two posters for the film of the 1954 Italian Expedition which made the first ascent, directed by Marcello Baldi.

      Firenze: Zincografica, [1955] - A large envelope, containing 10 lobby cards, each with a photographic scene from the expedition, approx. 48 x 34 cm., together with two posters for the film, each approx. 68 x 48 cm., one or two short marginal tears, one poster slightly browned to verso and with a few tape repairs, overall in very good condition, the envelope slightly worn. K2 was first climbed by the Italians Achille Compagnoni and Lino Lacedelli in 1954. A film of the expedition was made by Marcello Baldi for the Club Alpino Italiano, based on footage by Mario Fantin. These large format lobby cards would have been used in cinemas to advertise Baldi’s film. It seems unlikely that complete sets would have survived in large quantities, particularly in the original envelope in which they were distributed. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Nightmare in Red China.

      No date. Ca. 1955. - Color original poster, CROPPED to edge of image at left and lower edges (27 x 41 inches), folding to 13 3/4 x 10 1/4 inches. Multiple pinholes in image, light soiling, pinhole in each corner, some edge wear and small separations at folds. Movie poster for the 1955 film, the English version of an Indian film "Presented by Lloyd Friedgen and Rajkamal Kalamandir Studio", which was produced at the height of anti-Communism in the West. An Indian doctor aids a band of anti-Communist guerillas in China, and works against the development of germ warfare by Communist doctors. The huge hypodermic needle being wielded in the image at lower right of the poster hints at the tenor of the movie: "Swooping down from the North they created a brutal reign of terror! There were 5,000,000 innocent victims in the shame story of our time!"

      Cambridge, Mass: Richard Brukenfeld, 1955. First Edition. Paperback. Very Good. Scarce first edition of Corso's first book in staple-bound wraps with white covers titled in black and blue on front and priced "one dollar" in black on back. Sunning and light staining as is common for this edition. A small tear to top front of spine with perhaps 1/8 inch piece of cover paper missing with an adjacent closed tear of about 1/2 inch. Some very light rubbing to spine edges but generally an uncommonly well preserved cover. Text block is clean and tight with just two very small blemishes, one appears to be a little printer's ink offsetting, the other a tiny ink spot. A very desirable copy of Corso's first book, the production expenses of which were underwritten by students at Harvard and Radcliffe. (500 were printed but the poet is said to have stated that he only received 250, the other copies having been lost in the mail.) "The poems featured in the volume are usually considered apprentice works heavily indebted to Corso's reading. They are, however, unique in their innovative use of jazz rhythms most notably in "Requiem for 'Bird' Parker, Musician," which many call the strongest poem in the book's cadences of spoken English, and hipster jargon." (Poetry Foundation). Undoubtedly one of the giants of the San Francisco Poets of the "Beat Generation" Corso was born in New York City in 1931 and died in Minnesota in January 2001.

        Original Pastel - Tibetan Wise Man

      Tibet, 1955. Tibet, circa 1955-60. An original pastel portrait of a Tibetan native by world renowned artist Goray Douglas, with signature. Beautifully framed behind glass. Image measures approximately 32.5 x 25cm. Gold colour frame measures approximately 40 x 50 cm. Very Good Condition, an exceptionally well rendered pastel painting on grey paper laid to a wide margin mount. This is not a reprint. This is a RARE ORIGINAL PAINTING by Douglas Goray. From the artist's "Faces of the Hills" collection, an immense work in which he portrayed 350 individual Tibetan and Burmese subjects with exquisite likeness, the man in this painting appears wise, possibly intent in sharing oral tradition. Douglas is a noted Darjeeling artist, a master of portraiture, revered for his documentation of native peoples.. Very Good.

        Framed Inscribed Photograph

      New York, 1955. unbound. Exceptional original semi-gloss 10 x 8-inch black-and-white photo -- a three-quarters image of the great composer holding a baton while conducting a studio recording session, but still facing the camera, photographed by Adrian Siegel, whose stamp appears on the back. Inscribed in French in black fountain pen (translated): "To Charles A. Wall with much admiration from Villa-Lobos. New York, 2/14/55." Charles Wall was a full Colonel during World War II, serving on the staff of General Omar N. Bradley. He abruptly left the military in 1946 and became a successful music publisher. He was a plaintiff in the landmark 1959 antitrust case "Schwartz v. BMI" that also included Ira Gershwin, Virgil Thompson, and Gian-Carlo Menotti. Adrian Siegel is an acclaimed photographer, having taken photographs of classical music personalities for over 50 years while a cellist in the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. His photographs are housed in many permanent collections including the Museum of Modern Art. This unique photograph is boldly signed and was acquired directly from the family of Charles A. Wall. Matted in white and set in a black frame measuring 16.5 x 14.5 inches. Very good(+) condition. The single most significant creative figure in 20th-century Brazilian art music. Grove Encyclopedia calls him "the best known and most important Latin American composer to date.
