      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.

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.

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.

        Our Miss Brooks (Original screenplay, producer David Weisbart's presentation copy)

      Warner Brothers, Burbank, CA 1955 - Final shooting script for the 1956 film, based on the radio and television series of the same name. Producer David Weisbart's bound presentation copy, including a staff and cast list with contact phone numbers and a page describing the central characters in detail. The film version of "Our Miss Brooks" capped several years of a very successful run with the same character, at first on the radio (1948-1955), then on television (1952-1955), with Eve Arden starring as the title character in nearly all its episodes. Arden's "Miss Brooks" is an English teacher at a midwest high school, an interestingly feminist character stuck in the mid-1950s, who remains steadfastly single but is still charming and with a barbed wit, placing the control of her classroom ahead of all things--though she does secretly pine for the biology teacher Mr. Boynton. Red sheepskin with raised bands, gilt design, titles, and rule. Title page present, with credits for screenwriters Lewis and Quillan, dated 7/20/55 (script pages are all individually dated 7/20/55 as well). 104 leaves, mimeograph, Pages and binding Near Fine, with a few small, faint stains to the latter.

        Four original costume designs for the film "Artists and Models" done by Edith Head (Original artwork for the 1955 film)

      Los Angeles: Paramount, 1955. Four original costume designs intended for Jerry Lewis's character in the 1955 film "Artists and Models," with holograph notations and illustrations painted by costume designer Edith Head. The illustrations largely feature simple shirt-and-pants combinations. One, a white t-shirt and nerdily rolled-up blue jeans, features a silk scarf belt next to which Head has emphatically written "NO!"A later film of the popular Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis duo, "Artists and Models" depicts comic book writer Martin stealing ideas his kooky roommate comes up with in his dreams, while the pair simultaneously attempt to woo their very attractive neighbors.Unarguably the most famous costume designer in the history of cinema, Edith Head was known for her work with director Alfred Hitchcock, and for extensively consulting with leading actresses, becoming highly sought after as a result. Head was nominated for thirty five Academy Awards for Best Costume Design, winning eight. She still holds the record for the largest number of Academy Awards won by any woman. 15 x 20 inches, pencil and gouache on illustration board. Near Fine, with the occasional toning, soil, or bumped corner. Hirschhorn, p. 349.

        5 [Five] Branded Women [Jovanka and the Others] (Original screenplay for the 1960 film)

      Los Angeles: Paramount. Final Draft script for the 1955 film. Actor Van Heflin's copy, with his name on the front wrapper and his holograph notations throughout. Based on the novel "Jovanka e le altre" by Urgo Pirro. Once branded himself by the House Un-American Activities Committee, award-winning director Martin Ritt focuses on the cruel branding of five women in this standard wartime drama. Some of his better-known films (The Spy Who Came In from the Cold, Norma Rae) also deal with the question of social and ethical choices in the face of pressure. In this story, the savagery of the Yugoslav partisans as they fight off Nazi occupation forces is also vented on five women accused of Nazi sympathies because of their sexual association with one German officer. The women (played by Silvana Mangano, Vera Miles, Barbara Bel Geddes, Jeanne Moreau, and Carla Gravina) have their heads shaved in order to brand them as traitors. (Eleanor Mannikka, AllMovie) Filmed on location in Italy and Austria. Orange untitled wrappers, with the Dino De Laurentiis stamp and numerous notations. Title page present, noted as Final Draft, with credits for screenwriters Michael and Achilles, for screenwriter Pirro, and for director Ritt. 153 leaves, mimeograph, with notations throughout.

        Head of Blake.

      c. 1955. Cast bronze sculpture approx 7 x 7 x 5 inches. Portrait sculpture of William Blake. “Based on the life mask taken in 1823 by James S. Deville a phrenologist, when Blake was in his sixty-sixth year, Baskin’s bronze portrait of 1955 is extremely faithful to the original, emphasizing, as the mask does, those peculiar bulging forms of the forehead, the unusually deep convexity of the eyelids, and the deep slash of the downward-curving mouth that probably led Blake to joke about his ‘active physiognomy.’ It is said to have been Blake’s jest that the shape of his forehead made him a republican - which in his time meant a revolutionary,” Irma B. Jaffe (The Sculpture of Leonard Baskin, 1980).

Margaret Sanger, the originator of the phrase "birth control" and its best-known advocate, sought to create equality between the sexes by freeing women from what she saw as sexual servitude. She survived Federal indictments, a brief jail term, numerous lawsuits, and hundreds of street-corner rallies and raids on her clinics to live to see much of the world accept her view that family planning is a basic human right.

All science is interdisciplinary - from magnetic moments to molecules to men. Separate from: Les Prix Nobel, Edita Norstedts Tryckeri: 2003.Lauterbur's last paper, containing his original ideas about how life began. 37. Lauterbur, Paul C. Demystifying biology: did life begin as a complex system? Complexity (2005), 11, 30-35.Lauterbur was born on 6 May 1929 in Sidney, Ohio, and earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry in 1951 from the Case Institute of Technology, Cleveland, Ohio. From 1951 to 1963, with the exception of service in the US Army from 1954-55, he was a research associate at the Mellon Institute in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Lauterbur's 1962 PhD degree from the University of Pittsburgh was awarded for his independent NMR work at Mellon. In 1963, he joined the faculty of the State University of New York at Stony Brook. It was there that Lauterbur realised how nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signals could be used to make a new kind of image. The NMR technique, which was developed in the 1930s and 40s, consists of measuring the radio signals emitted by an object in a magnetic field. Lauterbur's breakthrough idea was to vary the strength of the magnetic field from place to place, so that different parts of the object emitted radio waves of different frequencies. In this way, positional information could be encoded in the radio signal, and images could be constructed mathematically from the returned signals.Lauterbur's concept, which came to him in 1971 while eating dinner at a fast food restaurant, was initially (and incorrectly) thought by some to contradict a well-established law of optics - Abbe's resolution limit - which states that the least distance between two points that can be resolved is one-half of the wavelength of the signal. Lauterbur's MRI technique circumvents this limit in a particularly clever way, and can resolve objects separated by distances less than one-thousandth the wavelength of the radio signal. His first manuscript describing the new technique was initially rejected by the journal Nature, a decision Lauterbur contested and the journal wisely reversed.Lauterbur quickly applied his MRI method to biological organisms - he first used clams and green peppers - and showed that different types of tissues could readily be distinguished. His subsequent papers established the foundations of many imaging techniques and applications now in clinical use. Today, over 60 million MRI scans are performed each year worldwide. Along with computed X-ray tomography (CT scanning), it is the most important medical diagnostic advance of the twentieth century.Although best known for his MRI work, Lauterbur made significant contributions to the development of (non-imaging) NMR spectroscopy. He published the first silicon NMR spectra and pioneering work on phosphorus, fluorine, and tin NMR spectroscopy. He recorded the very first carbon-13 NMR spectra and wrote a landmark series of papers on this spectroscopic method, which today is widely used in chemistry and biochemistry. More than anyone, Lauterbur proved that heteronuclear NMR spectroscopy was a powerful method for the investigation of matter, research that continued after his move to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1985. Lauterbur relished being a scientific maverick, and had indomitable curiosity and courage: in his seventies, despite a stroke that made walking difficult, he stopped working on MRI and devoted all his efforts to investigate how catalytic templating effects might have contributed to the chemical origin of life. He was witty and charming, forthright and modest in turn. He was a good colleague and a devoted family man, generously giving his time to help others. On the day he was informed of winning the Nobel prize, he insisted on keeping his regular afternoon appointment with his students. In addition to the Nobel prize, Lauterbur won numerous awards, including the US National Medal of Science, the US National Medal of Technology, and election to the US National Academy of Sciences and the U
