        Margaret Truman's Wedding Waltz

      1956 - Typed Document Signed as former President, March 21, 1956. 1 p. "She lived in the White House / With her Dad and Mother / For her father was President / Better than any other." Three years removed from the presidency, and a month before her daughter's marriage, Truman signs a lyrical tribute to Mary Margaret Truman, intended to be sung to the tune of the "Missouri Waltz."Historical BackgroundMissourian Harry Truman, it was widely reported, loved to play the "Missouri Waltz" in the White House. In 1949, after Truman's comeback victory over Thomas Dewey in the 1948 presidential election, the Missouri legislature adopted it as the official state song. "Missouri Waltz" was written by Tin Pan Alley lyricist James Royce Shannon in 1916 over a 1914 composition by Frederick Knight Logan.Mary Margaret Truman Daniel (1924- ) is the daughter of President Harry Truman and a writer of biographies, books on the White House, and best-selling mystery novels. A graduate of George Washington, she aspired to be a singer, and performed on stage and radio in the late 1940s and 1950s. On April 21, 1956, she married New York Times reporter Clifton Daniel in Independence, Missouri. In 1972, the year of her father's death, she published Harry S. Truman, a critically acclaimed biography using materials from the Truman Presidential Library, on whoseBoard of Directors she continues to serve.Harry S. Truman (1884-1972), Thirty-third President of the United States. A Missouri native, Truman was first elected to public office in 1922, winning a judge's seat of the Jackson County Court. After serving several terms, Truman was elected to the Senate in 1934, and in 1940 gained national attention for his chairmanship of the Senate Special Committee to Investigate the National Defense Program, which was eventually nicknamed "The Truman Committee." Truman continued his political rise in 1944; he was elected Vice-President as FDR's running mate. After only 82 days in the White House, Truman was thrust into the Presidency when FDR died unexpectedly. His inheritance was a world at war. Germany had surrendered, but Japan refused to give up the battle. Truman, in a desperate move to avoid having to invade the Japanese mainland, ordered the deployment of two atomic bombs. They were dropped on August 6 and August 9, 1945. Japan surrendered on August 14, 1945. As President, Truman waged an undeclared war on the Soviet Union, drafting the "Truman Doctrine", which proclaimed the United States' willingness to provide aid to countries resisting communism. And the Marshall Plan sought to strengthen the European economy in the hopes that this, too, would prevent the spread of Soviet influence. He also brought United States troops into the Korean War (1950-1953). In addition to his cold war activities, Truman's administration expanded the New Deal, and promoted Civil Rights initiatives.

      1956 - Paris, Editions de l'Imprimerie Nationale, 1956. 25 volumes in-octavo brochés, couverture rempliée, chemise cartonnée avec titre et tomaison imprimés. PREMIERE EDITION INTEGRALE qui couvre une période allant de 1851 à 1896. TEXTE INTEGRAL établi et annoté par Robert Ricatte pour les 22 volumes du "Journal". Tirage limité et numéroté sur vélin de Renage au filigrane de l'"Imprimerie Nationale de Monaco" (22 volumes pour le "Journal" et 3 volumes pour la biographie d'André Billy "Vie des Frères Goncourt"). Avant-propos de l'Académie Goncourt. « Ce Journal note, au jour le jour, les évènements ou les faits que les deux frères avaient pu observer, soit chez leurs amis, soit au cours de réunions, telles que les "Dîners Magny" (qui réunissaient Gavarni, Sainte-Beuve, Flaubert, Gautier, Renan, Taine), soit aux réceptions de la princesse Mathilde Bonaparte. Ces notes sont courtes et incisives, de véritables pointes sèches exécutées de main de maître. Leur souci de reproduire objectivement et très exactement les choses, ou les états d'âme, entraîne les Goncourt à employer des expressions très personnelles, moins précieuses toutefois que celles que l'on rencontre dans leurs romans. Les innombrables relations qu'ils avaient dans le monde artistique et littéraire, le soin qu'ils mettaient à être "vrais", font de ce "Journal" un précieux document sur deux âmes d'artistes et sur la vie artistique de la deuxième moitié du XIXème siècle. » (Laffont-Bompiani, III, 109b).

        Photograph of Irving Shulman by Arthur W. Knight

      First. Large black and white 1950s vintage photograph of the author Irving Shulman concentrating on a chess board, by poet and beat-era anthologist Arthur W. Knight. Image size approximately 12" x 16.5", mounted on artist board. Photographer's stamp "Arthur Knight -- Petaluma" on the rear. Light wear to the edge of the artist board, still fine. Two stickers on the back from when the photo was exhibited in 1956 at the Redwood Empire Camera Club in Santa Rosa, California (and where the photo took 4th place in the advanced category). Inscribed by Shulman on the artist board below the image: "3/30/56 For Arthur Knight -- with really many thanks. Irving Shulman." Knight took up photography as a teenager and had some success with literary subjects: his photos appear on more than 200 dustjackets. He later became involved in the beat and counterculture scene and with his wife Kit Knight edited and published numerous works. Shulman wrote many novels including The Amboy Dukes, The Square Trap, Cry Tough!, and The Big Brokers. He also wrote the screenplay for Rebel Without a Cause. An attractive and striking vintage image. .

        An Illustrated Ethnography of Formosan Aborigines. The Yami Tribe.

      Seikatsusha, Tokyo, 1956. - 2. Aufl. Mit insgesamt ca. 1.400 ausgezeichneten Fotografien auf Kunstdruckpapier (über 400 Fototafeln), sowie einer Faltkarte. OGLn.-Band XII, 456 S. Gr.-4°. Einband gering fleckig. Bibl. Ex. mit unauffälliger Bibl.-Signatur in Goldlettern auf dem Rücken, keine Stempel! Zwei Seiten mit hinterlegten Einrissen. In der Bindung gelockert, Buchblock teils angebrochen, einige Lagen mit Reparatur-Klebeband ordentlich fixiert. Vollständig und sauber. T. Kano und K. Segawa, zwei japanische Biologen, verbrachten zwischen 1934 und 1937 insgesamt 12 Monate auf Botel Tobago, der Insel des taiwanesischen ( heute!, damals hieß es noch Formosa) Urvolkes, und legten in der Zeit eine enorme Sammlung von über 2.000 Fotografien der Yami und ihrer mat. Kultur an. Daraus entstand dieses einmalige Werk, in seiner Art vergleichbar mit dem Klassiker von Bateson/Mead: The Balinese Character. "Cultural Anthropologists who use photographic documentation in research or teaching, will learn much from this monumental attempt to provide acomprehensive, illustrated "natural history" of a marginal contemporary Malaysian Society." (American Anthropologist, Vol. 61, Dec.1959, S. 1133). Die Erstausgabe von 1945 ist praktisch unauffindbar, da der größte Teil der ohnehin kleinen Auflage verlorenging. "This first edition was largely destroyed by fire during the air-raids and was soon out of print."(Zitat von Segawa aus dem Vorwort der einzigen und ebenfalls äußerst seltenen Neuauflage von 1956)

Only a small number of hardcover copies of this edition were printed, and most of them went to libraries (when copies surface on the market they usually have replaced endpapers and remnants of library markings). A superior copy of a notable rarity, avidly sought by both western and mystery collectors. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        RODIN [Text by Sommerville Story]

      London Phaidon Press LTD 1956 - First edition. With the engraved bookplate of J.R. Abbey, whose book collection was one of the largest and one of the most remarkable of his generation. He is perhaps best known for his collection of fine bindings and travel books. Two Arts Council exhibitions of bindings from his collection show that he was attracted by the strong geometric pattern designs and vibrant colour use of contemporary English and French binders. With 92 black and white plates of sculptures by Rodin plus two portraits of the artist and a drawing by him. 4to, in a very fine signed modernist binding by master binder Arthur Johnson, dated 1958. The binding is of full black morocco, each board with two large and deeply recessed conecle shaped areas boldly dashed in a mirrored design of gilt lines and curves, the spine with simple yet bold gilt lettering, gilt triple-ruled turn-ins and blue endpapers. t.e.g., housed in a navy blue slipcase with a felt lined, cloth covered chamise. 13, plates, [2] pp. Very fine, the binding pristine and as new. A SUPERB COPY, IN A VERY IMPRESSIVE AND EARLY SIGNED BINDING BY ARTHUR JOHNSON, AND FROM A HIGHLY NOTED COLLECTION OF FINE BINDINGS OWNED BY J.R. ABBEY. Arthur Johnson was a leading designer bookbinder and teacher. Johnson's own designs were bold, with a keen sense of colour and contrast. While he studied at colleges of art in Hornsey, Hammersmith and Camberwell, Johnson had begun to teach bookbinding at Hammersmith. Most instructors in bookbinding, he saw, were journeymen from the best trade workshops. While he recognised and admired their achievements in forwarding and finishing, he thought their design work deplorable - "their covers were reminiscent of carpets and chocolate boxes". Feeling the need to exchange ideas with like-minded people, in 1950, the year Johnson gained his Art Teacher's Diploma, he became a founder member of the Hampstead Guild of Scribes and Bookbinders. Bernard Middleton was another member and is still active in the field, as were Sally Lou Smith, Elizabeth Greenhill, Edgar Mansfield, Trevor Jones, Ivor Robinson and Philip Smith. The name of the group was changed first, to The Guild of Contemporary Bookbinders, and then to Designer Bookbinders. Johnson wrote a number of books on the subject. These include The Thames and Hudson Manual of Bookbinding (1978), The Practical Guide to Craft Bookbinding (1985), The Practical Guide to Book Repair and Conservation (1988), Lettering on Books (1993) and The Repair of Cloth Bindings (2002).
