Asbestos was long used for many different products, especially building materials such as flooring, insulation, and roof panels. By the 1930's, the effects of asbestos exposure and inhalation were beginning to be noted, but it was only classified as a carcinogen many decades later. In Germany, a ban on asbestos was passed in 1993. As of September 2016, although a number of North American libraries show holdings of this title, the vast majority appear to be for a small number of issues. Complete runs are very rare.

        Me. Probably Gallspach, 1956.

      1956. Large 4to. (4), 273, (1) ff. Typescript with numerous autogr. deletions, insertions, and revisions in pencil (autogr. insertions also typed and tipped in) and with insertion markings in red pencil. With punched holes, bound between cardboard covers. Original typescript of the autobiography of the English geographer and explorer Augustine ("August") Courtauld, published in 1957 as "Man the Ropes". Born into a wealthy Essex family of textile merchants, Courtauld spent typically unhappy school days at Charterhouse (a 1918 anecdote, describing an excessive beating for the waste of bread, precisely mirrors a contemporaneous scene at Gresham's School described by the slightly younger Stephen Spender in his memoirs), his years at Trinity, Cambridge, and especially his expeditions to ice and sand deserts, his voyages, his war service in the Coastal Forces, and his last years as an Essex politician. - Courtauld was dedicated to exploring the world's uncharted deserts, and as early as 1926 had visited Greenland with the great Scottish explorer James Wordie. In 1927/28, he explored the Southern Sahara with the later Lord Rennell, only barely surviving an attack of dysentery. Most famously, Courtauld spent five winter months as solitary keeper of the weather station his expedition had set up on the Greenland ice cap, 110 miles north of Ammassalik, at minus 64 degrees. The "British Arctic Air Route Expedition" of 1930/31, led by Gino Watkins with the plan of finding a short air route to Western Canada, had received material support from Courtauld, whose family helped finance the undertaking. In 1935, Courtauld returned to Greenland, where he was the first to climb Mt. Hvitserk (Gunnbjørns Fjeld), the highest mountain in the arctic at almost 3,700 meters. Courtauld was considered a brilliant navigator, and his numerous cruises took him everywhere from Mallorca to Trondheim (he once took along Evelyn Waugh to Northern France, but Waugh soon defected due to continuing bad weather). With the coming war, Courtauld explored the Northern coast of Norway for the British naval intelligence; against the resistance of the admiralty, he formed the "Royal Naval Volunteer Supplementary Reserve" and supported the British commando units in Norway. After the war, he attempted a transatlantic voyage to America with his yawl, but was prevented by bad weather. Still, the winter of 1947 was spent in Ian Fleming's Jamaican villa, where his son could recuperate in the Caribbean waters after a severe bout of Polio. In his 49th year, Courtauld himself developed Multiple Sclerosis. At the Zeileis sanitarium in Gallspach near Grieskirchen (Upper Austria), where he spent his last years in treatment, he penned the present memoirs, which he lived to see published. A comparison with the printed text shows that the typescript underwent further editing - probably by the publishers, Hodder and Stoughton. The author's notorious understatement would seem even more pronounced in the ms., confirming the appraisal of his travel companion, Francis Rodd (Lord Rennell): "He was no linguist, but made himself understood." Courtauld died on 3 March 1959 and was buried at sea. Dorothy Middleton recognized the versatile Courtauld as an explorer "who could have been more famous if he had been less modest and (perhaps) less of an individualist" (The Geogr. Journal 146/3 [1980], S. 446). More than two decades after his death, Nicholas Wollaston published the biography, "The Man on the Ice Cap". In the fall of 1959, Courtauld's widow Mollie married Richard Austen ("Rab") Butler of Saffron Walden (1902-82, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Home Secretary and Foreign Secretary; widower of Courtauld's cousin, Sydney Courtauld Butler) and celebrated her 100th birthday in 2007. - Occasional slight browning; edges somewhat wrinkled. Altogether well-preserved, complete typescript of the autobiography, probably the final draft as revised by the author himself.

      1956. Large 4to. Altogether (1+1+1¼+1½=) 4¾ pp. on 4 ff. With 1 typed envelope. Comprehensive letters to Martin Lutschewitz, on Adorno's severe discussion with representatives of the 1950ies youth movement. Adorno was accused then of being too unfamiliar with the musical youth to have the right to judge about it. "Perhaps the current situation made your letter so especially meaningful to me since my debate with the so-called musical movement and the endlessly unfair behaviour of such people as Twittenhoff, Borries, and Wiora (as opposed to Doflein, with whom I carry on a constant and fruitful correspondence) has forced me into extremely pointed wording. The discussion is about a fairly large piece, 'Critique of the Musician', which will be broadcast in the Stuttgart evening program on May 25 and again on June 1 [...]" (12. V. 1956; translated). - Each on headed paper; published in: s. b. - Full english transcript available on request. Sigrid Abel-Struth: "Zur 'Dissonanzen'-Diskussion". In: Musica. Heft III, 1986.

        Rotkäppchen

      Prag: Artia, 1956. Oblong small quarto. (16)pp. First edition. A pop-up rendition of Little Red Riding Hood by Jirí Trnka, in full color, with four foldable figurines of the characters that interact with the pop-up scenes. Illustrated with portraits of Red and the Wolf to the title page, and two vignettes of the picnic Red is bringing to her Grandmother. Only the introduction and epilogue pages bear text. The rest of the story is represented by four pop-up spreads, printed in rich colors.

These settings serve as backgrounds for the foldable figurines of Red, Grandmother, the Wolf, and the Hunter, allowing the reader to act out the story for him or herself. Accompanying the book is a pamphlet that shows how to fold the characters, and provides the full text of the story, which could be read aloud to narrate the action "on stage." Bound in illustrated paper over boards with a cloth spine and decorative endpapers. Book shows light edgewear and one creased corner to the flyleaf, else fine. All pieces of the figurines present and in fine condition. Scarcely found complete.

Il souligne toutefois l'importance de ce livre écrit en Algérie alors qu'il avait vingt-deux ans: "Pour moi, je sais que ma source est dans L'Envers et l'endroit, dans ce monde de pauvreté et de lumière où j'ai longtemps vécu et dont le souvenir me préserve encore des deux dangers contraires, qui menacent tout artiste, le ressentiment et la satisfaction".

        Rope (Original script for an unproduced 1956 play)

      Three Arts Productions, Florida 1956 - Draft script for an unproduced play called "Rope," adapted for stage by Walter Lawrence from Arthur Laurents' screenplay for the 1948 film, which in turn was based on the 1929 play by Patrick Hamilton. Copy belonging to an uncredited cast member who played Phillip, with notations in holograph pencil and ink at his inclusions.Hamilton's play opened in England in 1929, and opened on Broadway the same year, retitled "Rope's End." It was then adapted by Hume Cronyn, with Arthur Laurents writing the screenplay, for Hitchcock's classic 1948 thriller starring Dick Hogan, John Dall, Farley Granger, and James Stewart. Several TV movies were produced, notably a 1939 Dallas Bower film, a 1947 British production starring Dirk Bogarde, and a 1957 Australian production. A few Off-Broadway productions occurred throughout the 1950s and 1960s, and this script is presumed to have been used during that time. A story set in New York, a change from the setting of England in the original play, loosely inspired by the Leopold-Loeb case, where two friends kill a third friend just for the thrill. They hide the body in an antique chest, throw a party and use the chest as a table, and boast about a recent murder in town. An old professor at the party eventually wises to their scheme.Salmon wrappers, dated September 24, 1956, with credits for playwrights Hamilton and Lawrence, and screenwriter Laurents. Title page present, identical to front wrapper. 114 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 105. Mimeograph. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus, bound with two gold brads.

Marcel Breuer is one of the masters of Modernism, who extended the sculptural vocabulary he had developed in the carpentry shop at the Bauhaus into a personal architecture that made him one of the world's most popular architects at the peak of 20th-Century design. Among his projects at the Bauhaus was The Wassily, the first all-tubular steel chair. He designed many buildings, including Whitney Museum of American Art and numerous others.

        A DRAM OF POISON.

      New York: Coward-McCann, Inc., [1956]., 1956. First edition. First edition. Edgar Award Winner for Best Novel of 1956. Fine, bright copy in dust jacket with minor wear to the spine ends and corners, small closed tear to top edge of front cover and small closed tear to top edge of rear cover, and light rubbed on front flap fold.. Poetry instructor Kenneth Gibson is a quiet, sensitive fellow in his mid-fifties. He meets Rosemary James at her father's funeral. Now in her early thirties, she hasn't the strength, skills, or determination to carry on by herself. Kenneth decides to intervene in an unobtrusive way. When Rosemary is about to lose her house, Kenneth proposes a platonic marriage. After the wedding they move to a cottage on the property of a handsome widower. Some of the psychological barriers between the newlyweds start to fall. Then a serious accident derails their relationship and brings Kenneth's domineering and opinionated sister Ethel into their lives. An elusive title, especially so in collector's condition.
