W. Kohlhoff war über 20 Jahre lang Vorstandsmitglied des Vereins Berliner Künstler. Maler urbaner Landschaften Berlins und seiner Umgebung. Kohlhoff zeigt seine Stadtbilder menschenleer und verleiht ihnen somit teils einen denkmalhaften Charakter. In seinen Arbeiten wendet er sich vor allem den ruhigen Orten der Großstadt wie auch Hinterhöfen, Großstadtdächern und abgelegenen Arealen wie Seitenstrassen, Kleingärten, Bahngleisen, Fabrikanlagen etc. Er malte im Rahmen einer späten Neusachlichkeit. Dies gilt auch für seine anderen Motive wie Bilder aus den Alpen, Landschaftsstudien, Stilleben. Ferner malte er Porträts, Selbstporträts und Aktzeichnungen.<<< ( Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage &#150; further pics at request ) ( Artikelnumer 15760 ) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples

      London: The Educational Book Company Ltd,, 1956–58. 4 volumes, large octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt-panelled spines with red leather labels lettered in gilt, front covers lettered and ruled in gilt, top edges blue, blue and white endbands. With plates, diagrams and tables throughout. Very light rubbing to labels and very minor markings to covers, else an excellent copy. The Chartwell Edition, the first illustrated edition of Churchill's famous history, "published simultaneously in Britain on a subscription basis" (Woods). Churchill's history of the two branches of the English-speaking nations – the British Empire and the United States – was begun during his "Wilderness Years" in the early 1930s, but not completed until after his retirement from the political stage 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". "For the second time in the present century the British Empire and the United States have stood together facing the perils of war on the largest scale known among men, and since the cannons ceased to fire and the bombs to burst we have become more conscious of our common duty to the human race." 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 American War of Independence, and a full third of the final volume, "The Great Democracies" contains a detailed study of the American Civil War.

        Zoo Quest to Guiana [with] Zoo Quest for a Dragon [with] Zoo Quest in Paraguay [with] Quest in Paradise [with] Zoo Quest to Madagascar [with] Quest under Capricorn. THE 'ZOO QUEST' SERIES COMPLETE IN DUSTWRAPPERS

      Lutterworth Press,, [1956-63]. 6 vols., 8vo., First Edition, with coloured frontispieces and very numerous coloured and monochrome plates throughout, neat signature on front free endpaper of first volume; original cloth (green/red/green/red/blue/green respectively), gilt backs, a very good, bright, clean set in dustwrapper, the wrappers mildly chipped at extremities but with no major loss. A bright, fresh set in the original colourful wrappers of Attenborough's earliest books, recording his 'Zoo Quest' animal-foraging expeditions in many different territories. Well-illustrated and delightfully written, these early titles display much of the talent and infectious charm that has since made their author a naturalist, broadcaster and presenter of world renown. The series captures well the appeal of his first-ever television series 'Zoo Quest' that ran on the BBC from 1954-1964. It also gave rise, incidentally (in those far-off pre-computer days), to a highly popular board game! The sequence comprises 'Zoo Quest to Guiana' (1956), 'Zoo Quest for a Dragon' (1957), 'Zoo Quest to Paraguay' (1959), 'Quest in Paradise' (1960), 'Zoo Quest to Madagascar' (1961) and 'Quest under Capricorn' (1963). Two omnibus volumes of extracts were published for a new generation of readers in the 1980s. COMPLETE SETS IN THIS CONDITION ARE SELDOM OFFERED FOR SALE.

        [Promotional Sign]: Match Your Thirst Drink Coke

      [Atlanta, Georgia: Coke-Cola Co, 1956. Very Good. Promotional sign. Stiff cardboard measuring 34" x 18.5, in original aluminum 40" x 24" frame. Very good only with rubbing, a few puncture holes, dampstain and 3" tear at the bottom center of the image; the aluminum frame is moderate scraped and with only three of the remaining endcaps. A point-of-sale sign featuring an African-American couple staring into each other's eyes while drinking bottles of Coke. Coke debuted its first "Negro Market" ad campaign in 1953, the brainchild of African-American pitchman Moss Hyles Kendrix, who understood the importance of the untapped black consumer market. The campaign started with ads featuring popular black athletes and celebrities of the day drinking Coke before switching its focus in 1955 to feature "everyday" African-Americans men and women working and playing sports, young people studying and flirting, and children riding bicycles and playing with friends. These images were a departure from Coke advertisements of the past which portrayed African-American in stereotypical ways or subservient roles, while this campaign featured black models acting and doing the same things as their white counterpart. A nice example a scarce and important early Coke advertisement with its original frame.

        [Photojournalism][Six-Day War][Iron Curtain] Photo Album Compiled by American Journalist Depicting Soviet Europe and the Six Day War.

      Eastern Europe And Israel. 1956-1967. 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 9¾” x 13”. Steel spiral-bound artist's sketchbook. 48 leaves with 99 black and white and 63 color photographs inserted into corner mounts. Photos measure from 2¾” x 4” to 5” x 7” and some are captioned either on the page or on photo verso. Album good: cover and several leaves detached, photos generally very good plus to near fine with several overexposed; lacking ten photos. A collection of photographs by a journalist with an eye for composition and a nose for action. Russ Braley was a reporter for over 40 years, and these photos were taken while he was the Germany correspondent for the New York Daily News. The album starts with four photos of the Hungarian revolution of 1956, all showing armed men during a respite in fighting. Braley also shows Hungary in other years with shots of the secret police, huge crowds at political rallies, street scenes, and a couple of Nikita Khruschev amidst adoring throngsThere are some pictures of Moscow in 1960 that include the subway and the Kremlin. Several show the Berlin Wall in 1962 and 1964 while others in East Berlin include street scenes and people dancing. Braley depicts Romania in 1966 with women planting flower beds in Bucharest, street scenes, and an excellent image of a woman swinging a pickaxe alongside men working on a railroad. About half the album is devoted to Israel starting with Eilat in May, 1967. More than one photo here has captions regarding “Beatniks” living in shanties on Eilat Beach before the war. Others show the inside of a restaurant, the desalinization plant, and some street scenes. At least 47 photos depict the Six-Day War. Braley joined another journalist, Shelby Scates, mid-war, going through the West Bank in a rented Ford given to Scates by Bill Mauldin. Scates recounts their time together in his War and Politics by Other Means: A Journalist's Memoir (University of Washington Press: 2015). They watched the invasion of Syria from the Kfar Blum kibbutz, ultimately getting caught in the crossfire: “Three grim looking farmers greeted us under the struggling shade trees at Kefar Blum. The other members of this commune were tucked away in bunkers. The first sounds, like an orchestra warming, were screams from three Israeli Mysteres, slashing down with bombs for Tel Azaziat, the Syrian fortification a few hundred feet above and several kilometers away from Kefar Blum. The Israeli column reached halfway to Tel Azaziat before the first Syria shells came down on or toward Kefar Blum. I dove for the slit trench. Braley and Austrian landed on top of me. The hour that followed was an unblended symphony of incoming shells—heavy artillery, light artillery, and mortars. They seemed to fall all about us, reaching for the nearby road and the Jordan River bridge apparently . . . Braley, veteran of our Pacific War, said, 'I never went through anything like this in the Philippines.' We jumped from the trench and ran toward the German Ford . . . I floorboarded the Ford, so we bounced over the shellpocked byroad, then sped over the highway to Tiberias. ”Images of the war show soldiers and a destroyed plane at Rafah, destruction at Tel Katzir, and men in trenches at Kfar Blum. Others show Israeli military vehicles on the way to Kfar Blum, helicopters in flight, and soldiers celebrating in Syria. There are also photos of the dead and wounded, prisoners in Syria, and Jordanian refugees at the Allenby bridge. An astounding mix of well composed imagery documenting war, culture and daily life in hotbeds of social and military conflict.

        Nella notte buia

      In-8° (238x173mm), pp. 56 nn., cartonatura editoriale nera con titolo e illustrazione in blu. Interamente illustrato da Munari su carte di diversi colori con l'intento di saggiare "le possibilità comunicative dei diversi tipi di carta", con fustellature e strappi. Perfetto esemplare. Prima edizione, senza menzione di edizione al colophon. "Questo libro è nato dall'esperienza dei "libri illeggibili": libri senza parole ma con immagini astratte che si trasformano voltando le pagine "come tanti fotogrammi di film" (...) La realizzazione di questo volume è dovuta a Giuseppe Muggiani tipografo-editore di Milano che, con amorevole cura, ha seguito personalmente il lavoro nei minimi particolari. Questo libro è stato stampato nella sua officina grafica... con rotativa a mano, su carte cercate per lungo tempo e trovate per puro caso" (dalla presentazione). Scriverà nel 1981 lo stesso Munari in "Da cosa nasce cosa" ripercorrendo questo suo volume di un quarto di secolo prima, che era stato rifiutato da vari editori in quanto privo di testo: "Questo libro era costruito con un sedicesimo di carta nera con illustrazioni in blu (che era la notte), un capitolo di carta semitrasparente con ciuffi d'erba stampati in verde e insetti vari che, nascosti nell'erba, apparivano voltando pagina; e alla fine un capitolo (sempre di sedici pagine) di carta da pacchi di recupero,, grigio-beige, piena di impurità (che era la terra) con una grotta fustellata e immagini stampate in nero". E in altra sede: "Verso gli anni Cinquanta facevo delle ricerche sulla possibilità di comunicazione visiva della tecnologia editoriale. (...) Realizzavo libri fatti solo di carte diverse di materia e di colore, un sedicesimo di carta patinata seguito da un sedicesimo di carta da pacchi e poi carta nera con due pagine rosse. Che cosa comunica ? Oppure pagine tutte dello stesso colore ma con buchi, tagli, fustellature; poter voltare solo mezza pagina. Da questa sperimentazione nacque anche un libro per bambini intitolato "Nella notte buia", dove si vede, (non si racconta a parole, si vede) una storia di gatti che vanno per i tetti, stampati in blu su carta nera. (...) Fatto il menabò ne ero entusiasta. Chi potrà apprezzare questo nuovo tipo di libro se non un editore nuovo ? Andai subito a proporlo a Bompiani il quale, con la sua gentilezza proverbiale, guardandomi come si guarda un bambino, mi disse: Bellissimo ! Divertente ! proprio molto originale, ma... dov'è il testo? Questo non è un libro. Questo libro è stato stampato poi da un amico tipografo, nel 1956. Oggi è introvabile. Alcuni esemplari sono nei musei d'arte moderna di vari paesi" (Bruno Munari, in Accame, Valentino Bompiani. Idee per la cultura, 1989, p. 66). Maffei, Munari. I libri, p. 90. Italiano

        The Angry Red Planet.

      Stafford and Co. Ltd, Nottingham and London [1956]. An original and scarce UK quad for the 1959 sci-fi horror 'The Angry Red Planet', an 'Invasion of Mars' film concerning the first manned flight to and exploration of planet Mars. Folded, condition B (fresh, corners clipped). Approx dimensions 40x30 inches, landscape format. The movie was made with a CineMagic technique which was applied for all of the scenes on the surface of Mars. This was an attempt to make the hand drawn animations appear as real as the live action footage; the rat-bat-spider-crab was particularly terrifying, and remains one of the most effective monsters of all time; it later appeared in the music video for Iron Maiden's anthemic single 'The Number of The Beast'.Note on Format; the 'quad' is a vertical view UK movie poster measuring approx. 30 x 40 inches, generally issued folded with one vertical and three horizontal creases. The standard (and most collectible) format for film posters in Britain, being the equivalent of the US 'one-sheet'.
