Leningrad: leningradskaya fabrika ofsetnoy pechati, 1956. [32] pp., ill. 26.8x18.5 cm. In original illustrated publisher's wrappers. Closed tear on the upper right corner of the front wrapper. Otherwise near fine. First edition. Extremely rare. The front cover depicts one of the most vibrant examples of the Soviet constructivist architecture - a building of the Kirov Meat-Packing Plant in Leningrad. Erected by the leading Soviet architects Noi Trotsky (1895-1940), Boris Svelitskiy, and R. Zelikman in 1930-1933, the plant was awarded a Grand Prix for its outstanding engineering and architectural features on the international exhibition in Paris in 1937. This richly illustrated brochure offers a visual insight into the working process of the Kirov Meat-Packing Plant in Leningrad. Commissioned in 1934, the grand factory was to provide meat products to the whole city. By 1935 the Kirov plant produced 5 times more meat products than all Leningrad enterprises in the 1920s. The production process was maximally mechanised and the factory chiefly incorporated American facilities. In 2000 the factory went bankrupt. At the moment, the complex is in disrepair. The edition continues the tradition of the photobooks dedicated to the meat industry, kick-started in the 1930s by El Lissitzky with the publication of the two versions of the book "Pischevaya industriya" [i.e. The Food Industry], co-designed with his wife Sophie Küppers. The edition was compiled for the 1956 All-Union Industrial Exhibition (Moscow) to showcase achievements of the second-largest enterprise in the Sovie … [Click Below for Full Description]

KENNEDY, JOHN F
New York: Harper, 1956. FIRST EDITION. Presentation copy inscribed by Kennedy: "For Alfred Eisenstaedt with every good wish John Kennedy."Eisenstaedt was perhaps the greatest of the photographers for Life magazine. "He was especially renowned for his ability to capture memorable images of important people in the news, including statesmen, movie stars, and artists" (New York Times). Eisenstaedt photographed Kennedy extensively during the 1960 presidential campaign and during his presidency.In 1954 Kennedy determined to write a magazine article about famous political leaders who held unpopular positions that were nonetheless in the national interest. After Kennedy's back surgery he expanded the work into a book with the working title "Courage in the Senate." Published as Profiles in Courage, the book won the Pulitzer Prize for biography in 1957. It conferred on Kennedy an aura of intellectual seriousness which was critical to his acceptance as a presidential candidate a few years later. One of the most famous books by an American president, Profiles in Courage tells the stories of Kennedy's great predecessors in the Senate: John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, Thomas Hart Benton, Sam Houston, Edmund Ross, L. Q. C. Lamar, George Norris, and Robert A. Taft.This is a splendid presentation copy linking Kennedy and a giant of photojournalism.Original cloth and dust jacket. Some edge wear and fading to jacket. Very good.

1956. The Greece Tourist Agency, during the late 1940's and early 1950's created a large number of beautiful travel posters for destinations in Greece . The country was hoping to enjoy some of the increased tourist traffic that was a result of newer airplanes and the improved economies of the world after the end of WWll. The Apollon of Olympia was part of the group of sculptures found in the west pediment of the Temple of Zeus at Olympia. Its original location also provides it with another name: the Apollon from the west pediment. It is one of the most important statues of the Severe style or early Classical style, dating from ca. 460 BCE. The statue is currently in the archaeological museum in Olympia. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.

London Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd, 1956. Two three-quater length photographic portraits by Baron, each signed by the sitter and dated 1956, (each 400 x 520 mm), contemporary mounts and oak frames, (each 850 x 650 mm), a few light spots to mount of Prince Philip, the actual photographs in fine condition. This pair of Royal portraits are not only unsual in their larger size than normally found signed by that of the H. M. Queen is one the most iconic images of her, taken at the time. The photographer Baron (1906-1956), whose real name was Sterling Henry Nahum, was best known as a photographer of dancers, film stars and debutantes. As a personal friend of Prince Philip, he photographed many significant moments in The Queen's life, including her marriage to His Royal Highness in 1947. Baron also took the first official photographs of Prince Charles following his birth in 1948. Baron created idealised, romantic and glamorous portraits of the young Queen. While these two examples of his work appear formal and traditional, especially when compared with the work of his contemporaries Cecil Beaton and Anthony Armstrong-Jones, they allow the youth, radiance and beauty of the new Queen to shine through.

de Beauvoir, Simone
The World Publishing Company, Cleveland and New York, 1956. First American edition and first English edition of the novel for which de Beuvoir won the Prix Goncourt, awarded to the best and most imaginative prose work. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by Simone de Beauvoir on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. Translated from the French by Leonard M. Friedman. Dust jacket design by Laszlo Matulay. A signed limited edition of The Mandarins was printed, in our experience trade editions signed by de Beuvoir are rare. In her most famous novel, The Mandarins, Simone de Beauvoir takes an unflinching look at Parisian intellectual society at the end of World War II. Hailed by Iris Murdoch as "a remarkable book, a novel on the grand scale, courageous in its exactitude and endearing because of its persistent seriousness." In fictionally relating the stories of those around her - Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus, Arthur Koestler, Nelson Algren - de Beauvoir dissects the emotional and philosophical currents of her time. At once an engrossing drama and an intriguing political tale, The Mandarins is the emotional odyssey of a woman torn between her inner desires and her public life. "Much more than a roman a clef . . . a moving and engrossing novel" (New York Times). It was the recipient of the Prix Goncourt Award.

LEWIS, C. S.
London: Geoffrey Bles, [The Bodley Head] 1950-1956. 7 works, octavo. Attractively bound in recent burgundy morocco, raised bands to spines, titles and decoration to spines gilt, single rule to boards gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a matching cloth slipcase. The occasional minor blemish, an excellent set. With colour frontispieces and black and white illustrations by Pauline Baynes. First editions, first impressions, of this complete set of the Narnia series. "The immediate inspiration for 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' was a series of nightmares that Lewis had had about Lions. More seriously, he was concerned to do for children what he had done for an adult readership in his science fiction trilogy. The Narnia novels are not allegorical; they are entirely in keeping with the belief, shared by Lewis and his close friend and Oxford colleague Tolkien, that stories in themselves, especially of the mythical type, can give spiritual nourishment without imparting abstract meaning. As Naomi Lewis has written, the books are 'intoxicating' to all but the most relentlessly unimaginative readers, and must be judged the most sustained achievement in fantasy for children by a 20th century author" (Carpenter, p. 370). Carpenter, Humphrey (ed.), Oxford Companion to Children's Literature, (1995). [Attributes: First Edition]
