        Jazz west coast: a portfolio of photographs.

      Hollywood, CA: Linear Productions, Inc., 1955 - Quarto. Wire-stiched in the original illustrated card wrappers. Wraps a little rubbed and with a few creases and chips, text-block browning at the edges, but overall very good. 76-pages, plus ads., profusely illustrated from Claxton's photographs. Extremely uncommon collection of Claxton's superb evocations of the West Coast jazz scene, his first publication, this copy boldly signed by Claxton on the half-title. Art-directed by Lee Friedlander and Stuart Fox, edited by Claxton himself together with Nesuhi Ertegun, soon to be VP at Atlantic, and Richard Bock, founder of Pacific Jazz, who had hired Claxton as his art director, and for whose enterprises this would appear to be a promotional item. WorldCat locates twelve copies, ten in the US and two in Europe, one of them at the US Information Service in Rome. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        My First Seventy-six Years: The Autobiography of Hjalmar Schacht

      Allan Wingate, 1955. vi, [2], 552 pages. Index. Black and white photographic plates. "One of the most important autobiographies of the post-war period, for there can be few personalities still alive who have been so intimately connected with the march of world events for so many years... His first great triumph was to rescue the German Mark from the inflation of 1921... As the Nazi avalanche swelled, Hitler persuaded him to occupy the Presidential chair at the Reichsbank... but (Schacht) soon saw that the Fuhrer was driving relentlessly towards war. A quarrel resulted and he left the Government, remaining under a cloud until he was arrested towards the close of the regime." - from dust jacket. Schact was later aquitted of war crimes at Nuremberg. Average wear to unmarked book. Above-average wear and soiling to dust jacket which is now preserved in archival-grade Brodart. Kehr & Langmaid 1217.
