        Henri-Georges Clouzot, Claude Renoir, and Pablo Picasso on the set of "Le mystère Picasso" [The Mystery of Picasso] (1956)

      N.p.: N.p., 1956. Vintage double weight borderless photograph from the 1956 film. A candid, on-the-set photograph of Picasso, director Clouzot, and the film's cinematographer Claude Renoir. On the verso is the stamp of the French production company Filmsonor. One of the most important films about art--and more broadly, about the creative process--ever made. Based on a more primitive 1949 Belgian documentary, "Visit to Picasso," Clouzot conceived the idea of capturing Picasso in the act of creating paintings for the camera. He had the artist paint on glass, then photographed the reverse side of the glass, so that the viewer saw only the painting, but not the painter, as it emerged. By agreement between Picasso and Clouzot, most of the paintings were subsequently destroyed so that they would only exist on film. The film begins with Picasso creating simple marker drawings in black and white, gradually progressing to full scale collages and oil paintings. Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 1956 Cannes Film Festival. In a custom museum-quality frame, archivally mounted, with UV glass. 9.5 x 7 inches. Single faint crease to one corner, else Near Fine.

        The Supreme Court

      Washington, D.C.: Ed Clark 1956 - Enormous color photograph of the Supreme Court at the height of the school desegregation movement. Completed in 1935, the magnificent neoclassical Supreme Court Building features the motto “Equal Justice Under the Law” on the west facade, which serves as the front of the building. This splendid, enormous color photograph was taken by famed LIFE magazine photographer Ed Clark. The standard work on Clark notes: “Black Church Leaders pray on the Supreme Court steps for integration to succeed” (Herrera, Frank, Ed Clark: Decades). “We conclude that, in the field of public education, the doctrine of “separate but equal” has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal. Therefore, we hold that the plaintiffs and others similarly situated for whom the actions have been brought are, by reason of the segregation complained of, deprived of the equal protection of the laws guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment” (Supreme Court of the United States, Brown v. Board of Education, 1954). Provenance: Ed Clark. 16 x 20 in. Color photograph. Minimal wear. Fine condition.

      New York: Lion Books, 1956. Second Printing. Octavo (18cm); illustrated wrappers; yellow edge-staining; 128pp. Generically inscribed by cover artist Robert A. Maguire on the title page. Light wear to extremities, a few faint stress creases, and two discreet closed punctures to center of rear wrapper, briefly affecting a few of the terminal pages; Very Good+. Together with a handwritten note by Maguire on card stock, which reads: "You will notice my signature is different on my newer covers. I copied the original signature from the old time sport cartoonist Willard Muller (proceeds with an example of Muller's signature). The model's name on the book cover is Madelin Mason, popular in the 1950's. I used her head on a few other covers. Bob Maguire." Attractive copy of Thompson's third paperback novel, this printing issued three years after the first, in a taller format and with different cover art by Maguire. Despite the flaws, a spectacular copy with a particularly revealing note from one of the great illustration artists from the period. Hubin, p.402.

        Indian Camp (Original screenplay for an unproduced television episode of "Playwrights '56")

      New York: Self published, 1956. Draft script for an unproduced episode of television series, "Playwrights '56 (1955-1956), produced by Fred Coe and based on stories by Ernest Hemingway. Written by two of the show's prominent writers, A.E. Hotchner and Sidney Carroll. A.E. Hotchner and Ernest Hemingway were friends and informal business partners, Hotchner often acting as a literary agent. The two corresponded with each other extensively throughout the 1950s, and their correspondence was collected in the 2005 book, "Dear Papa, Dear Hotch: The Correspondence of Ernest Hemingway and A.E. Hotchner, " edited by Albert J. DeFazio III, with a preface by Hotchner. Scripts for "The Battler" (season 1, episode 2) and "The Capital of the World" (unproduced) have also been seen, both based on Hemingway stories. Yul Brynner directed an adaptation of "The Capital of the World," as part of the "Omnibus" TV series in 1953. Carroll continued to write screenplays for films into the 1960s, including "The Hustler" (1961) and "Gambit" (1966), while Hotchner's only film credits include the screenplay for "Hemingway's Adventures of a Young Man" (1962), and the source memoir for "King of the Hill" (1993), as well as several TV movies. "Playwrights '56" aired on the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) in 1955 and ran for about one year. The show featured primarily small-scale dramas, often set in small towns or working-class city neighborhoods. Writers included Gore Vidal, Sumner Locke Elliott, and J.P. Miller. Notable performers included Frank Overton, Joan Blondell, Paul Douglas, Lillian Gish, Tom Evell, Edmond O'Brien, Conrad Nagel, Sylvia Sidney, Ethel Waters, Ralph Bellamy, and more. Most, if not all, of the episodes have been lost to audiences, with several kinescopes and videotapes of 14 episodes housed in the archives at the Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research in Madison, Wisconsin. "The Battler" also appears to be the only episode with holdings in worldwide libraries, in visual formats only. Only the second copy of this adaptation we have handled, presumed to be the only adaptation of this Hemingway story. Gray wrappers with paper title label. Title page preset, undated, noted as "A three-part scenario," with credits for Hemingway and screenwriters Hotchner and Carroll. 26 leaves, typed, with the last leaf of text numbered 23. Near Fine overall, bound internally with three silver brads. Complete collation details available upon request.

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples

      London: Cassell, 1956-58., 1956. A superb set of FIRST EDITIONS. 4 volumes. 8vo. Finely bound in recent green half morocco, gilt titles and decoration to spines with raised bands, blue cloth boards; top edges gilt. Published shortly after Sir Winston Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, this is the author's last great work, only available some twenty years after he wrote the first draft, which then lay dormant whilst he attended to National and Parliamentary matters. In his preface he remarks that the book 'slumbered peacefully, until 1956, 'when things had quietened down'. Reading reports of the last decade of his life, one is struck by the central interest his history represented in his final years, and how rapidly he sank into decline and depression after the final volume was published. Woods A138(a). Langworth 315.

        Archive - British Architect for Foreign Aid Projects in Africa & Southeast Asia - Includes Detailed Design Plans & Specifications, Drawings, Photographs and Travel Journal

      Nigeria, 1956. Nigeria, Algeria, Botswana, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, 1956-1992. Archive of senior architect K. T. Dean, featuring numerous documents, photographs and drawings for the planning and design of major projects, mainly of educational facilities for underprivileged communities in Africa and Southeast Asia, as well as one manuscript travel journal recollecting highlights of time spent abroad. The lot in very good condition. Kenneth Troughton Dean, born in England in 1926, worked on an international level with the Nigerian Government, the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, and other powerful organizations, and specialized in Educational Planning and Design programs. A voluminous archive documenting long term construction projects for the betterment of educational welfare in underdeveloped countries, from inception to completion, by a British architect of high repute. Mr. Kenneth Troughton Dean concentrated his efforts, for the majority of his career, in Africa and in Southeast Asia. This material, preserved by him, commemorates and reveals details of important works in Nigeria, as well as Algeria, and Botswana, as well as Jakarta in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. The archive includes the following: "Tale Ends" - A Manuscript Travellogue with Photographs. 8vo. 61 pages in manuscript plus illustration in various formats including manuscript diagrams and original photographs. Entertaining and informative, with approximately 25 pages of text and several photographs devoted to travels to Nigeria, Mr. Dean recollects over three decades of travel to underdeveloped countries, having made 5 separate visits to Nigeria between the years 1956 and 1982. Fascinating advertisements, clipped articles, calling cards, and such miscellanea are also tipped in. The narrative begins by describing a journey made in 1980 for business purposes to Yanbu in Saudi Arabia, followed by a journey to El Asnam in Algeria, September 1981 with the Nottingham division of CLASP (Consortium of Local Authorities Special Programme). In June 1982 in Tunisia he met with notable architects. Two visits to Sri Lanka follow. From earlier travels, an excellent photo of Mokolo, Northern Cameroon, was taken in September 1973, followed by photographs and accounts of travels in Nigeria. Here he mentions Nigeria's NUCCON (National Universities Commission Consultants) and a civil engineering project in which he had an influential leadership role. The work was supported by the Nigerian Federal government which announced that several new universities would simultaneously be planned and constructed across the country. Neatly dividing his work by travel interest, a chapter is headed "How we lived" beginning in Indonesia and then Nigeria, revealing here that he was in Wudil as early as 1957 and was hosted by the resident architect. He digresses with an entertaining yet unsettling experience from Kaduna in 1977. The next chapter describes hotel accommodations, from most unique pesspective of an architect, of Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, and of course Nigeria (Ibadan, Onitsha, etc.) "I visited Onitsha several times while working on a World Bank schools project... introducing me to the joys of chewing cola nut...). Similarly he describes rest houses in Accra, Ghana, and in Eket, Eastern Nigeria, and then restaurants and clubs of the same regions. 34 manuscript drawings made on the spot whilst travelling through Northern Nigeria by Mr. Dean from 1975-1981 (plus 2 made in Jakarta), each captioned and dated, most initialled. A skilled sketch artist, Dean hand draws some of the places visited in the state of Kaduna including hut villages, praying grounds, irrigation, a cemetery, and a dam. In Ife he sketches the site of a future university. Drawings are also made of an old road to Zaria, a residential compound, a primary school between Zaria and Kaduna, St. Bartholomew's church in Wusasa, Zaria - the oldest church in Northern Nigeria which was established in 1922, and the road to Yakasai. He includes scenes near Gubi, at Mokolo, at Rhumsiki and the Calabar airport. Pencil and ink drawings, some coloured, varying in size from 21 x 15 cm to 29 x 19 cm, each protected in a clear plastic sleeve, the lot contained in a blue folder with manuscript label "Northern Nigeria Sketches." Volume of pertinent technical notes on construction projects mainly in Nigeria outlines construction standards, logistics, site assessment, and much more. These include African education projects undertaken in Nigeria and elsewhere with the International Development Association, the World Bank, CLASP, and NUCCON, including the University of Technology in Owerri which was established in 1980. 8vo. Coil binding over cardstock letterhead covers of Robert Matthew, Johnson-Marshall and Partners architect firm (RMJM) with whom he frequently partnered with. Excellent visual and data-rich portfolio of works undertaken with British architect firm RMJM (Robert Matthew, Johnson-Marshall and Partners) including documents, diagrams, letters, reports, development proposal plans and profuse with photographs. Pertaining to Nigeria, this volume features residential accommodations for Nigerian universities, and a technological university project in Ruduyausa, Gamjuwa, Bauchi, and the Bauchi State University. Among Southeast Asia projects, we find schematics and photographs of an ESL school in Bangkok. 8vo. Large green binder brimming with images and information, each item contained in a clear plastic sleeve for protection. Three file folders, titled "Draft Texts, Africa etc;" "Overseas Material;" and "Reflections - Another Work," respectively. Containing more documents and photographs, we further find newspaper clippings and other published articles, as well as Dean's personal notes, contemplations, and autobiographical summary. Subject matter herein includes, in part, work with British architect Robin Atkinson in Lagos, schools in Bahrain, World Bank involvement in Nigeria, and corruption. A large manuscript map measuring approximately 75 x 60 cm is titled "Peoples of Nigeria." Folio folders labelled in manuscript. CLASP (Consortium of Local Authorities Special Programme) is an unincorporated association made up of local authorities. It was established in 1957 at the instigation of the then Ministry of Education for the purpose of improving the construction and delivery of schools. The consortium addressed issues of skill and material short age together with a high demand. It turned to a systematic form of construction, one which relied on a high proportion of prefabricated elements and had the ability to be built on sites with poor ground conditions including mining subsidence. . Very Good.

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, Chartwell Edition

      London: The Educational Book Company, Ltd., 1956. Illustrated Edition. Hardcover. This is a virtually pristine, collector-grade set of the first illustrated edition, bearing the original glassine wrappers. This first illustrated edition was published contemporaneously with the first edition and is known as "The Chartwell Edition." It is a lovely edition of Churchill?'s sweeping history and last great work. The first draft was completed just before the Second World War, but the work was not completed and published until after Churchill's second and final Premiership, nearly 20 years later. 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. This edition is not only illustrated, but is also attractively bound in blue leatherette with red leather spine labels blocked in gilt, gilt ruled spine compartments, gilt volume title and vertical rule on each front cover, head and foot bands, and blue topstain. Each volume is profusely illustrated. This set is quite scarce thus, beautifully preserved beneath the original plain glassine wrappers. The bindings are virtually perfect, immaculately clean and bright, square, and tight with sharp corners, perfect spine labels, and no wear. The contents are likewise, clearly unread - crisp and bright with no previous ownership marks and vivid, unfaded topstain. We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks. The blue-stained top edges are clean and retain dark, wholly unfaded color. The fore and bottom page edges remain bright and clean. The only trivial blemish noted is a small indentation to the bottom edge of the Volume I text block. The original glassine wrappers show some wrinkling, tears, and a little loss, including some short,. horizontal tears to the spines, but are substantially complete and have done their job of protecting the magnificent set beneath. Please note that this large, heavy set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A267.2, Woods/ICS A138(d). Langworth p.317.

        Designs for a Nash Metropolitan Station Wagon

      [New York, 1956. Pencil and pastel on paper, mildly soiled and creased. This drawing is attributed to Richard Arbib by a previous owner. There is a label on the back giving Arbib as the artist and the date of January 17, 1956. After working for Harley Earl in Detroit, Arbib opened his own studio in New York and ultimately developed designs for more than three hundred companies over the last 45 years of his career. This design for a Nash Metro station wagon was never developed, and Nash never pursued the idea of a compact station wagon. Arbib's drawing, which is unusually large, added some fins and sharp edges of the sort that American Motors generally seemed to resist, though they were among the defining characteristics of American car design for the next decade or so.

      Verlag für Fremdsprachige Literatur, Peking 1956 - Oblong quarto. Unpaginated. [72]pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over salmon cloth. Scarce German-language edition of this colorful and profusely illustrated work praising China's first five-year plan. Having restored a viable economic base, the leadership under Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, and other revolutionary veterans were prepared to embark on an intensive program of industrial growth and socialisation. For this purpose the administration adopted the Soviet economic model, based on state ownership in the modern sector, large collective units in agriculture, and centralized economic planning. The Soviet approach to economic development was manifested in the First Five-Year Plan (1953-1957). The key tasks highlighted in the Plan were to concentrate efforts on the construction of 694 large and medium-sized industrial projects, including 156 with the aid of the Soviet Union, so as to lay that the primary foundations for China's socialist industrialization; to develop agricultural producers' cooperatives to help in the socialist transformation of the agriculture and handicraft industries; to put capitalist industry and commerce on the track of state capitalism so as to facilitate the socialist transformation of private industry and commerce. This book is complete with its two folded plates at rear.Very scarce (not in Martin Parr's "The Chinese Photobook from the 1900s to the Present")Dust-jacket partly rubbed and creased along edges, with tiny chipping at corners.

        Toda Raba.

      Athens: Thipros, 1956. First Greek edition. Octavo. Signed by Nikos Kanzantzakis. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with a chip to the foot of the spine and some small closed tears. The English translation was not published until 1964. Uncommon, especially in the original dust jacket. Most of the early apologists for the Russian Revolution scribbled down their dreams and enthusiasms and glossed over the cruelties they saw with their own eyes. One who did not was the great Greek novelist Nikos Kazantzakis, who toured Soviet Russia in the 1920s and put down his impressions in novelistic form. Translated for the first time into English, Toda Raba shows that Kazantzakis overlooked nothing: the ruthless exploitation, the sterile wrangling over doctrine, the starvation, the basement executions.

Original French program for the 1956 film, "Elena et les Hommes," the third of a trilogy of films directed by Jean Renoir (the others being "The Golden Coach" and "French Cancan"), starring Ingrid Bergman at the peak of her career, in which the director envisioned a very lush and stylized version of eighteenth-century France.
