        Art international, vols. 1, no, 1 (Nov 1956), to 21, no. 5, (Oct./Nov. 1977). Vol. 1, 1956-1957 was titled European art this month

      Zürich [later Lugano, Switzerland]: James Fitzsimmons, 1956-1977A nearly unbroken run of approximately the first 210 numbers (approximately 190 individual issues). The periodical continued through vol. 27, no 4 (Sept.-Nov.1984), usually 10 numbers per year. It revived as a quarterly in Paris in 14 issues from autumn 1987 to spring-summer 1991. Some issues from 1978 to 1991 are available to partially extend this set. James Ftizsimmons, an American expatriate born in China could have looked like a dilettante during the first two years of his career as a publisher of art periodicals. European Art This Month (1956-1957) and the first year of Art International (1958) were modest calendars of art events about 24.5 x 17 cm in size and 40 to 112 pp., with some uninspired illustrations in the second year. Its roster of writers such as William S. Rubin, Lawrence Alloway, E.C. Goossen, Jacques Lassaigne, Pierre Restany, Umbro Apollonio, Otto Benesch, and many others was more promising. With vol. 3, no. 1/2 in early 1959 the swan emerged: a beautifully designed and printed, oversize periodical more than twice as large as its parent (about 34.5 x 24.5 cm). It championed American art in Europe and introduced American art lovers, and especially artists, to the largely unknown avant garde being produced in the Old World, as it recovered from World War II. **This unbound run, all in its original covers, has been fully collated; most copies are in excellent condition. **Volume 1, nos. 2 and 3 (European Art This Month) are photocopies, and nos. 7, 8 and 9/10 are missing. Volume 2 is complete in 10 numbers but only 6 separate issues (4 are double numbers). Sizes vary from 19:3 (March, 1975) onward. Volume 21 contains only six issues, and no. 6 is missing. The four scans are covers by Max Bill, Alberto Burri, Adolph Gottlieb, and Gene Davis. Shipping to any location is extra for this very heavy set. A shorter run of Volumes 3 to 10 also is available at $950. Search author: James Fitzsimmons; title: Art International, Vol. III:1/2, 1959, through Vol. X:10, Dec. 1966.

        Profiles In Courage.

      Harper & Brothers, Publishers, New York 1956 - First edition of Kennedy's Pulitzer Prize-winning work. Octavo, original half cloth, with eight pages of black-and-white photogravures. Foreword by Allan Nevins. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Fred Payne with the highest regards John Kennedy." The recipient Frederick G. Payne was a United States Senator from Maine from 1953 to 1959. He previously served as the 60th Governor of Maine from 1949 to 1952. Kennedy and Payne worked together in the Senate in the 1950s and were close friends. "From the Personal Library of Senator Frederick G. Payne stamped opposite the front free endpaper, near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Phil Grushkin. A nice association linking these two United States Senators. The Pulitzer Prize-winning book was written when Kennedy was the junior senator from Massachusetts, and it served as a clarion call to every American. The inspiring accounts of eight previous heroic acts by American patriots inspired the American public to remember the courage progress requires. Now, a half-century later, it remains a classic and a relevant testament to the national spirit that celebrates the most noble of human virtues. Kennedy relates these heroisms to sketches of American politicians who have risked their careers for principle. "A man does what he must," he wrote, "in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures-and that is the basis of all human morality."

        String Quartet No. 7. "To the Borgerth Quartet." Signed by the composer and with occasional autograph markings

      "Heitor Villa-Lobos stands as the single most significant creative figure in 20th-century Brazilian art music. This significance stems not only from his international recognition, but from his achievement in creating unique compositional styles in which contemporary European techniques and reinterpreted elements of national music are combined. His highly successful career stood as a model for subsequent generations of Brazilian composers." Gerard Béhague in Grove Music Online.. Folio. Unbound. [112] pp. Proof copy of the full score with markings in pencil in the composer's hand and editorial markings in red ink in another hand relative to tempo, dynamics, and pitch clarification to 12 pp. With the composer's autograph signature in pencil at left margin of first page of music and date at conclusion in red pencil. No place, publisher, or date, but most likely a proof for the first edition published in New York by Associated Music Publishers in 1956.

        de Stijl 1917-1931

      London: Alec Teranti, Ltd, 1956. 8vo (9¼ x 7 inches). viii, 293 pp. Four color plates showing designs by Mondrian, Rietveld, Van der Leck, and Van Doesburg and Van Eesteren; and 48 black-and-white plates at end on 24 sheets. Original cloth. Light age-toning to sheet edges; minor handling wear to binding. A SUPERB ASSOCIATION COPY GIVEN BY HANS SCHLEGER TO PAUL RAND IN 1969, inscribed in Rand's hand on the title-page: "London Oct 3.69 from Hans Schleger." EXTENSIVELY ANNOTATED BY RAND: 71 pages bear a total of 164 of Rand's pencilled notes, underlinings, and doodles. In total, 91 phrases or sentences are underlined, 63 notes in margins repeat or amplify ideas, and there are five doodles, four annotated commentaries, and one correction. Rand, the leading American modern graphic designer of the day, visited Schleger (1898-1976) in the autumn of 1969 in London. Rand admired Schleger, or Zero as he was known, once praising his role in modern design: "Hans Schleger was a graphic designer before the concept of graphic designer was invented." Zero pioneered the concept of corporate identity, working on logos and branding for John Lewis, Penguin Press, and Finmar Furniture, among other companies. The two designers met soon after the war at the Arts Club in Dover. "It was only a short time after we left the club that we were walking arm-in-arm along Picadilly, destined to be friends" (Paul Rand, quoted in Stephen Heller, 'Paul Rand.') Rand shows an active engagement with Jaffe's text on de Stijl, early in the text marginally noting "dynamic equilibrium" (p.5) as an ideal of the movement. A number of Rand's notes mark points of comparison with Bauhaus tenets, and at one point he makes special reference to the concept of play in de Stijl practices (p.100). There are several notes in the section on Van Doesberg's writings on a new architecture (pp.160-61). A rather vehement note of "No Math!" accompanies Jaffe's writings on the need to step away from mathematical composition (pp.104-105). This important association copy, connecting two twentieth century masters to one of its major design movements, is accompanied by two evocative documents of the trip: 1. Paul Rand's boarding pass from his flight aboard the Concorde. Rand's name is written in twice on the die-cut ticket. He sat in seat 1B. 2. Rand's manuscript notes and drawings on a sheet of lined paper. Two pages on one sheet, 8 x 5 inches. Includes a dozen small drawings in blue ink, and notes for a lecture on de Stijl (including a reference to Matisse): "The story of modern art is the story of The Transformation of the 3 dimensional world of the documentary to the 2 dimensional world of the imaginary."

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples. The Birth of Britain; The New World; The Age of Revolution; The Great Democracies.

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd, 1956–8 - 4 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, spines lettered in gilt, top edges red. With the dust jackets. An excellent set in the dust jackets, with a few tiny blemishes and very slight creasing at extremities, spine panels very lightly faded. Illustrated throughout with maps and genealogical tables. First editions, first impressions. Churchill began his history of the British Empire and the United States during his period in the political wilderness in the early 1930s, but did not complete it until after his retirement in the late 1950s. The events of the Second World War, the major interruption in the writing process, had reconfirmed his belief in the "special relationship" between Britain and the United States. Consequently he gave considerable attention to the key events of American history: around a quarter of the third volume, The Age of Revolution, is dedicated to the War of Independence, and a full third of the final volume, The Great Democracies, contains a detailed study of the American Civil War.

This significance stems not only from his international recognition, but from his achievement in creating unique compositional styles in which contemporary European techniques and reinterpreted elements of national music are combined. His highly successful career stood as a model for subsequent generations of Brazilian composers." Gerard Béhague in Grove Music Online. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        de Stijl 1917-1931

      London: Alec Teranti, Ltd, 1956. 8vo (9¼ x 7 inches). viii, 293 pp. Four color plates showing designs by Mondrian, Rietveld, Van der Leck, and Van Doesburg and Van Eesteren; and 48 black-and-white plates at end on 24 sheets. Original cloth. Light age-toning to sheet edges; minor handling wear to binding. A SUPERB ASSOCIATION COPY GIVEN BY HANS SCHLEGER TO PAUL RAND IN 1969, inscribed in Rand's hand on the title-page: "London Oct 3.69 from Hans Schleger." EXTENSIVELY ANNOTATED BY RAND: 71 pages bear a total of 164 of Rand's pencilled notes, underlinings, and doodles. In total, 91 phrases or sentences are underlined, 63 notes in margins repeat or amplify ideas, and there are five doodles, four annotated commentaries, and one correction. Rand, the leading American modern graphic designer of the day, visited Schleger (1898-1976) in the autumn of 1969 in London. Rand admired Schlegel, or Zero as he was known, once praising his role in modern design: "Hans Schleger was a graphic designer before the concept of graphic designer was invented." Zero pioneered the concept of corporate identity, working on logos and branding for John Lewis, Penguin Press, and Finmar Furniture, among other companies. The two designers met soon after the war at the Arts Club in Dover. "It was only a short time after we left the club that we were walking arm-in-arm along Picadilly, destined to be friends" (Paul Rand, quoted in Stephen Heller, 'Paul Rand.') Rand shows an active engagement with Jaffe's text on de Stijl, early in the text marginally noting "dynamic equilibrium" (p.5) as an ideal of the movement. A number of Rand's notes mark points of comparison with Bauhaus tenets, and at one point he makes special reference to the concept of play in de Stijl practices (p.100). There are several notes in the section on Van Doesberg's writings on a new architecture (pp.160-61). A rather vehement note of "No Math!" accompanies Jaffe's writings on the need to step away from mathematical composition (pp.104-105). This important association copy, connecting two twentieth century masters to one of its major design movements, is accompanied by two evocative documents of the trip: 1. Paul Rand's boarding pass from his flight aboard the Concorde. Rand's name is written in twice on the die-cut ticket. He sat in seat 1B. 2. Rand's manuscript notes and drawings on a sheet of lined paper. Two pages on one sheet, 8 x 5 inches. Includes a dozen small drawings in blue ink, and notes for a lecture on de Stijl (including a reference to Matisse): "The story of modern art is the story of The Transformation of the 3 dimensional world of the documentary to the 2 dimensional world of the imaginary."

      Her Majesty's Stationery Office (HMSO), 1956 2018-01-04. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/No Jacket. PRICE IS FOR THIS SET PLUS THE REST OF THE 'HISTORY OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR UNITED KINGDOM' SET (92 VOLUMES TOTAL). First editions, except for volume 2, which is a 1971 2nd printing with amendments. An exceptional set. 1956 Hard Cover. Complete set, six volumes in seven parts. xxvi, 859; xix, 635; xv, 401; xi, 406-783; xxvi, 773; xvii, 634; xvi, 422 pp. 8vo. An account of the over-arching strategy employed by British forces during World War II. Numerous fold-out maps and charts throughout text. Somewhat curiously, the first volume of the series, which according to the editor's preface was planned as an introduction to the series, was published last, in 1976 - the other volumes were released between 1956 and 1970. This allowed for inclusion of material that was still classified when five of the other six volumes were published, but as a result complete sets are somewhat more difficult to compile.
