In original hardcover paper portfolio, with wood pattern print and title on front.* A fine set of prints by artists like Li Chun, Ku Yuan, Li Hua, Lin Chun, Chang Chien-Wen and others. The prints show everyday life in China in the 1950s. Typical titles for the illustrations are "the Shipyard"; "Railway surveyors", and "building the Han bridge". The realistic style used for these illustrations was promoted by the Chinese government under Mao as "social realism" and was in fact the only approved art style in that period. Rare, hasn't been on the market in a long time. Portfolio with the trace of a removed label, otherwise a very good copy..

        Walt Disney's African Lion

      Simon and Schuster, in collaboration with Marc Barraud - Geneva [1956], New York - (laminated pictorial boards; no dust jacket) [a very nice copy, the covers a little bit rubbed and with one tiny surface nick to the front cover and a short scrape to the rear cover, in both instances exposing a little bit of white beneath the otherwise black surface; there is also a neatly-inked gift inscription (dated April 1957) on the ffep]. (color photographs) Beautifully-produced companion volume to the 1955 Disney "True-Life Adventure Film" THE AFRICAN LION. Per the statement on the copyright page, the book was "designed by Armand A. Bigle and produced by Marc Barraud from the original French language edition 'Walt Disney Lions d'Afrique' [published in 1955]," and was printed in Switzerland. The text, in this edition at least, was credited to James Algar, who began at the Disney studio as an animator in 1934, but after the war was made principal director (and later producer) of the studio's "True-Life Adventure" series of nature documentaries, which were produced between 1948 and 1960. The highlight of the book, though, are the color photographs of African wildlife (not just lions!) by Alfred and Elma [typo'd as "Emma" in the book's introduction, over Walt Disney's signature] Milette, which are tipped onto the pages throughout. (The volume has been carefully checked, and all photos are present and attached; mostly they are 7" x 3-1/2" or 3-1/2" x 3-1/2", although there are seven full-page (7" x 7-1/2") prints.) The Milottes, independent filmmakers before going under contract to Disney in the late 1940s, received cinematography credit on the earlier True-Life Adventure films (which until 1953 were all short subjects) and also on THE AFRICAN LION itself; the series earned a total of eight Academy Awards for the Disney studio, although this particular film wasn't nominated. I can't quite account for the scarcity of nice examples (or any examples) of this book in the current marketplace, but I suspect it may be due to many copies having been either sold to libraries, or placed in the hands of children -- both environments which would have been highly detrimental to the survival of the tipped-on photos.

        Six Television Plays

      Simon & Schuster, New York 1956 - First edition. Near fine in an edgeworn and internally repaired, about very good dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author to Leonard Sitomer, an agent in the play department at the William Morris Agency, with apparent affection: "April 3, 1956 To Leonard, With grateful thanks for helping this, and so many other projects, along the way to fruition -- Reggie." Laid in are two Autograph Letters Signed by Rose, to Sitomer's wife (Signed "Reg"), and to his parents (Signed "Reginald Rose"), apparently upon Sitomer's death. Each letter is one-and-a-half pages long, and each expresses eloquent and sincere condolences. Six plays that appeared first on television, including two that were made into films: *Twelve Angry Men* and *Crime in the Streets* with James Whitemore, John Cassavetes, and Sal Mineo. This book was published shortly before the teleplay of *Twelve Angry Men* was made into the classic Sidney Lumet courtroom drama featuring Henry Fonda, Lee J. Cobb, Ed Begley, E.G. Marshall, Jack Klugman, Jack Warden, and Martin Balsam. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Saucerian Bulletin, 1956 / first four issues / UFO

      Gray Barker, Clarksburg, WV 1956 - Clarksburg, WV: Gray Barker, 1956. First Editions. The first four issues of Barker's The Saucerian Bulletin, those being March, May, September and October of 1956 (volume 1, numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4). Octavo, corner stapled leaves, each 6 pp (three leaves). Remarkably nicely preserved; mailling folds, small rubber stamp of original subscriber on each, last leaf of one issue has pulled off its staple, else, really, near fine, with only minimal age toning. The very first volume, all four issues, of one of the earliest serials produced by Barker, an iconic promoter of UFO research in the early days who is now seen by many as a controversial figure of debatable motives, and one who almost certainly did take part in at least one hoax. He nonetheless did - at the time, more than almost anyone else - publicize, in his books and periodicals, actual (still unexplained) sightings and incidents; He was as instrumental as anyone in early dissemination of information about the "Men In Black" phenomenon, still a larger-than-life mystery - perhaps with some actuality, perhaps only as a psychological symbol for distrust of the still-reticent government entities involved with unidentified aerial phenomena. In any case, these Saucerian Bulletins - small, short, and unpretentious - are extraordinarily rare symbols themselves of what was going on in those early years of the modern UFO era.
