        Szene am Strand von Porto Garibaldi. Lithographie..

      35 x 52 cm, Randläsuren von fachfrauisch abgelösten Klebstreifen, sonst gutes Exemplar. Exemplar 7 von 9. Unten rechts m. Bleistift sign. (VARLIN). Varlin hielt sich 1956 in dem zwischen Ravenna und Venedig liegenden Ort Porto Garibaldi auf. (Laut Auskunft von Frau Guggenheim vom Varlin-Archiv, der unser Dank gebührt, ein seltenes Blatt).Der Maler Varlin, 1900 als Willy Guggenheim in Zürich geboren, nimmt innerhalb der Schweizer Malerei des 20. Jahrhunderts eine Sonderstellung ein. Unbeeindruckt von den avantgardistischen und abstrakten Strömungen seiner Zeit, schuf er ein eigenständiges figuratives Werk, das die Fragilität des Alltäglichen ins Zentrum rückt. Varlin starb 1977 im bündnerischen Bondo. Gerne senden wir Ihnen eine Abbildung.

        NIXON

      Holt (1956), New York - The first study of this complicated man. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by both Toledano and Nixon to editor William Randolph Hearst, Jr., son of William Randolph Hearst, the newspaper despot and subject of Orson Welles's film CITIZEN KANE. It was Hearst who was largely responsible for the Hollywood image of the hard-drinking cynical reporter always in pursuit of breaking news. The younger Hearst shared the 1956 Pulitzer Prize for international reporting for his interviews with the new Russian leadership, and in 1959 he would cover Nixon's visit to the Soviet Union. Nixon's inscription reads: "To Bill Hearst/who is always a/friend in good or/bad weather -- from/Dick Nixon." Over the course of time, Nixon's attitude toward journalists became much less friendly. A fine association copy. Spine of book darkened. Very Good in a Near Fine, price-clipped dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, full set of British first editions, finely bound in full red morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1956. First edition, first printing. Full leather. This is a full, four-volume set of first editions of Winston Churchill?s A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, bound in full red morocco goatskin by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. The elegant bindings feature hubbed and gilt ruled spines, each bearing the title and author, as well as the individual volume numbers and subtitles. There are gilt rule borders on the covers, gilt rules on the binding edges, gilt page edges, and gilt ruled turn-ins framing striking, marbled endpapers. Even the gold, red, and black head and foot bands are executed with noteworthy skill and aesthetic effect. ?Bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, London, England? is gilt-stamped on each lower front pastedown. This venerable firm, founded by Francis Sangorski and George Sutcliffe in 1901, became recognized as one of the leading bookbinders in London. Like Churchill himself, Sangorski & Sutcliffe endured the First World War, the Great Depression, the Second World War, and post-war austerity. This truly gorgeous example of the fine binder?s craft is a reminder to collectors that not all fine bindings are created equal. The flaw that prevents our doubling or trebling the price of this set is two shallow and unobtrusive but nonetheless present six-inch vertical razor knife scars on the front cover Volume III. Ostensibly this defect is the result of a previous owner or over-zealous customs agent. Apart from this flaw, condition of the set is fine. The bindings are square, clean, bright, tight, and supple with a few trivial blemishes but no appreciable wear. The contents are well-suited to the bindings ? notably bright and clean with no previous ownership marks and none of the customary spotting. Churchill's four volume epic, A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, was published between 1956 and 1958.  The work traces a great historical arc from Roman Britain through the end of the Nineteenth Century, ending with the death of Queen Victoria. Perhaps not coincidentally, this is the very year that saw Churchill conclude his first North American lecture tour, take his first seat in Parliament, and begin to make history himself. The work itself was two decades in the making.  The Churchillian conceptions that underpinned it were lifelong. The cultural commonality and vitality of English-speaking peoples animated Churchill throughout his life, from his Victorian youth in an ascendant British Empire to his twilight in the midst of the American century. Churchill began A History of the English-Speaking Peoples in the 1930s, completing a draft of "about half a million words" which was set aside when Churchill returned to the Admiralty and to war in September 1939.  The work was fittingly interrupted by an unprecedented alliance among the English-speaking peoples during the Second World War - an alliance Churchill personally did much to cultivate, cement, and sustain.  The interruption continued as Churchill bent his literary efforts to his six-volume history, The Second World War, and then his remaining political energies to his second and final premiership from 1951-1955. Please anticipate the possibility of additional shipping, depending on destination. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A267.1(I-IV).a, Woods/ICS A138(aa), Langworth p.315.

        Autograph Letter Signed (ALS) discussing the main character of his Space Trilogy and his views on Devils

      1956. A single sheet, dated January 17, 1956, written on both sides and signed by the author. With it's original mailing envelope addressed in the author's hand. "Dear Mr. Middleton, Ransom does pray (in so many words) in the previous volume Out of the Silent Planet; and the dialogue between Our Lord and Ransom in V. to V. [Voyage to Venus] may, I think, be regarded as a description of that kind of "prayer" in which God is, if I may so put it, "the Aggressor." I'm not sure that I know what you mean by "translation." If you mean that when the conflict which (for us in this life) is inward, is "translated" mythically into events in space, the converse procedure of the spiritual life as we now know it can't be very comfortably worked in as well - then, I think my answer is that you're right. But one mustn't be too rigid. He prays (adores) like B. as one member of the angelic antiphon at the end. The existence of devils is no part of my credo but it is one of the things I, just as a chap, happen to believe. (No Dualism of course. The Devil is but the opposite of God; God is defined as "that which has no opposite." The Devil is only the opposite of Michael. (I wish they wouldn't conduct their little duel in our back yard, but there it is). I don't know what (what the devil) an impersonal cosmic force is: when they mean something like gravitation. But if the word "impersonal" gives anyone comfort, "happy man be's dole". Yours sincerely, C. S. Lewis A fascinating and hitherto unknown letter by Lewis, not collected in "The Letters of C.S. Lewis," edited by W.H. Lewis (1987).
