        The Organization Man

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1956. First edition of one of the most influential books on management ever written. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author, "Best to Lydia Bronte about whom this book was not written! Holly Whyte 4/18/89". Additionally signed "William H. Whyte" on the title page. Near fine in a very good dust price-clipped dust jacket with a few small chips to the crown of the spine and a small chip to the front panel. "Holly always believed that the greatest lesson the city has to offer us is the idea that we are all in it together, for better or for worse, and we have to make it work." (Paul Goldberger, Architecture). Uncommon signed and inscribed. William H. Whyte is American urbanist, organizational analyst, journalist and self-proclaimed people-watcher. The Organization Man is "[r]ecognized as a benchmark, Whyte's book reveals the dilemmas at the heart of the group ethos that emerged in the corporate and social world of the postwar era" (Nathan Glazer). It "established the categories Americans now use when thinking about the workplace, the suburbs, and their lives" (Newsweek). "The Organization Man remains a worthwhile read today" (Philadelphia Inquirer).

      London: Foyle [The Book Club] 1956-1966., 1956. 11 volumes; 8vo. Publisher's hardbacks in dustwrappers. Some toning and and occasional spotting to the cheap paperstock, minor wear as expected, but generally a very good set, housed in a custom-made fleece-lined slipcase. The entire run of the popular British book club editions, which began in 1956 with 'Live and Let Die'. In total eleven of the fourteen James Bond titles were issued in this format and this set is complete as published. The books were offered in this cheaper format, usually one year after the Cape first editions- some share the same Jonathan Cape artwork, but after the 'Thunderball' painting was damaged while on loan in America, Cape would no longer lend out their original art; as such the Book Club commissioned their own action packed and striking cover designs.

        Original 1956 Signed Blueprint of Frank Lloyd Wrightís design which is today the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison, Wisconsin

      Printed Blueprint Signed ìF Ll W / 56î in brown ink in a 1î x 1î brown ink square box shaded in red pencil in the lower left, 56.5î x 18î. Two 2.75î vertical lines have been drawn in red pencil at each end of the 28.5î x 5î architectural drawing in the lower half, captioned ìElevation From Lake Monona Scale: 1/32î = 1í-0îî Lightly printed. Minor soiling and mounting traces at perimeter easily matted over. Fine condition. In 1938, Frank Lloyd Wright proposed a design for a civic auditorium which would link Lake Monona, surrounded on three sides by the city of Madison, Wisconsin, with the State Capitol building two blocks away. Wright had a summer home at Spring Green, 35 miles from Madison. It was defeated at a County Board meeting by one vote. In 1954-1955, in the postwar economic boom, Madison voters approved a bond referendum for a civic center and Wright was chosen as project architect. The original signed blueprint here offered was accomplished in 1956. The Lake Monona project was effectively destroyed the next year by a state law reducing the height of a lakefront building to 20 feet; Wrightís building would have been 60 feet high. Madisonís Mayor called the signing of the bill into law by Republican Gov. Vernon Thomson on September 21, 1957, ìa regrettable insult to Wisconsinís most renowned living citizen.î Wright said that objectors to the civic auditorium had misrepresented the facts, saying that his proposal would not have interfered with the view of Lake Monona from the street above. ìFrom the capitol two blocks away,î explained Wright, ìthere would be no change whatever from the view except a great fountain of gushing water where the unconscious objectors have shown a building.î On this blueprint, viewing the civic auditorium from Lake Monona, the fountain and the Madison State Capitol building can be seen in the distance. After the 1958 elections, in January 1959, Madison-area state legislators introduced a bill which was signed by new Democratic Gov. Gaylord Nelson, repealing the 1957 law. Wright completed his last rendering shortly before his death on April 9, 1959. In 1992, Madison voters narrowly approved the transformation of Wrightís civic center into a convention facility. Construction began in 1994 and in July 1997, the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center opened, 59 years after Frank Lloyd Wrightís inception of the project. ìWith interiors redesigned by Taliesin architect Tony Puttnam, Monona Terrace spans ninety feet out over shimmering waters, incorporating thoroughly modern technology and amenities with the architectÂ¥s signature organic designÃ?î (from

        Miles Davis Birdland 1956 Original Vintage German Concert Poster By Gunther Kieser

      Birdland 1956, Miles Davis, Lester Young, Bud Powell and The Modern Jazz Quartet, Original Vintage Concert Poster, First Printing, Kongress-Saal, Deutsches Museum, [Munich], Sunday Nov 11 1956, printed by P.R. Wilk, designed by Gunther Kieser. A1 Format (331/8" by 23 3/8"), has been folded, touch of wear to edges, tiny chip to centre top margin, light pencil annotation to verso, else, about fine, bright and unmarked. Stored flat and shipped rolled in a mailing tube. A superb and very scarce example of Gunther Kieser's early jazz poster art, a striking abstract designed exclusively for the German concert presentations of an extended European tour by this all-star ensemble. With his monumental Prestige recordings completed in Oct. 1956, Miles had agreed to headline this month-long package tour, as a star soloist appearing with his fellow luminaries, Lester Young and Bud Powell in various combinations backed by the French pianist Rene Urtreger's Trio, with the Modern Jazz Quartet usually ending the performances. The few recordings from these European concerts mark the only occasions on which Miles is known to have recorded with the great tenor saxophonist Lester Young. Gunther Kieser (1930) is one of Germany's preeminent poster artists whose work can be found in the collections of major museums including, the Tokyo Museum, the Louvre and the Museum of Modern Art. He has had a prolific and varied career, during which his technically innovative, provocative and brilliant designs have kept him in the fore front of European poster art. Kieser is best known for his jazz and rock concert posters, and particularly for the design work he did for the German concert producers Lippman & Rau from the 1950-80s. A very scarce example of Kieser's early jazz poster art in collector's condition. J1787 . About Fine.

        "Question of Parity Conservation in Weak Interactions".

      Lee and Yang,  "Question of Parity Conservation in Weak Interactions". American Physical Society,  1956.  Physical Review 104 (1) October 1, 1956  Original printed wrappers.  Fine condition.  We offer the entire weekly issue in its (SCARCE) original wrappers. (Original owner's name in ink in top margin of front wrapper.)"Chen Ning Yang and Tsung-Dao Lee were awarded the 1957 Nobel Prize for their work "for their penetrating investigation of the so-called parity laws which has led to important discoveries regarding the elementary particles". The work of Yang and Lee came to destroy the "law of conservation of parity," which had been assumed to be a fundamental law of nature; it predicted that beta particles, which are emitted by a radioactive nucleus, would fly off in any direction, regardless of the spin of the nucleus. In 1957 ("Experimental Test of Parity Conservation in Beta Decay"( Physical Review, Feb 1957), using atoms of cobalt-60, W.S. Wu (et alia) showed that beta particles were more likely to be emitted in a particular direction that depended on the spin of the cobalt nuclei. Broken parity (symmetry) essentially means that something virtual (shadowy, but real in a special sense and widely used in physics; it has real physical consequences, since it creates all the forces of nature) has become observable (real in the ordinary everyday sense that it can be detected, measured, observed, and used. "Until 1956 the overwhelming majority of physicist believed that parity conservation is never violated in nature. Any new theory without evidence that went against this ingrained belief would almost certainly be dismissed. The belief in parity conservation was too strong an accepted paradigm to be challenged. Then in 1956 two Chinese physicists Yang and Lee first pointed out the exception and theoretically predicted non-conservation of parity. Initially there was predictable skepticism and it took further convincing work and subsequent experimental verification by a Chinese woman Wu and her colleagues and in 1957 the physicist community abandoned a long held belief in conservation of parity. Yang and Lee were not only vindicated, they received the Nobel Prize in Physics for this intellectual feat."

This edition was used as a christmas card by Phillip's in 1956. A strong image with bold lines, beautiful detail and interesting contrast between shadow and light. The excellent quality of framing and pristine condition makes this print especially desirable. Walter Joseph Phillips (October 25, 1884 – July 5, 1963) was an English-born Canadian painter and woodcutter, acclaimed as one of Canada's most famous printmakers and for popularizing the colour woodcut in the style of the Japanese. His artistic career spanned from the 1900s through the 1940s, during which time his work was exhibited throughout North America and Great Britain. In 1940 he was asked to become a resident artist at the Banff Centre, then known as the Banff School of Fine Arts, where he played an important role in the development of their visual arts program. Its Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta holds an extensive collection of Phillips works and a research archive..

        Question of Parity Conservation in Weak Interactions

      Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: American Inst. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. FIRST EDITION in original wrappers of Lee and Yang's groundbreaking proposal to determine the nature of parity in weak interactions; essential to the modern understanding of elementary particles. "Following a suggestion made by the experimenter Martin Block, who was his room-mate at a conference in 1956 (at Rochester, in New York), Richard Feynman made the heretical proposal to the meeting that the theta and tau are different states of the same particle, which itself has no definite parity, and that parity is not always conserved. The idea was quickly taken up by Chen Ning Yang and Tsung Dao Lee, who showed that parity is not conserved in the weak interaction; their theory was immediately tested and proved correct by Chien Shiung Wu, and Yang and Lee received the Nobel Prize for their work in 1957- one of the quickest such awards ever made" (Gribbin, Q is for Quantum). "Although physicists still did not understand it, they appreciated the import of the discovery that nature distinguished right from left in its core. Other symmetries were immediately implicated- the correspondence between matter and antimatter, and the reversibility of time... As one scientist put it, 'We are no longer trying to handle screws in the dark with heavy gloves. We are being handed the screws neatly aligned on a tray, with a little searchlight on each that indicates the direction of its head'" (Gleick, Genius). Particle Physics, One Hundred Years of Discoveries: "Proposals to test spatial parity conservation in weak interactions. Nobel prize to T.D. Lee and C.N. Yang awarded in 1957 'for their penetrating investigation of the so-called parity laws, which has led to important discoveries regarding the elementary particles." In: The Physical Review, Second Series, Vol 104, No. 1, pp. 254-258. Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: American Institute of Physics, 1956. Quarto, original printed wrappers; custom box.

        Le Père Goriot / La Guerre et la Paix I-III *

      Imprimerie Nationale / A.Sauret, Paris 1952/1956. - 4 volumes brochés 23 x 17, couvertures imprimées rempliées, doubles emboîtages décorés, chemises demi-parchemin avec décors et titres dorés. L'un des 300 exemplaires de tête sur Grand Vergé d'Arches, avec deux états du frontispice. Le duo intégral ymagé par Picasso comme préfacé Maurois, dans deux séries paralèlles, le second présentant l'originalité d'être nominatif et non pas numéroté à la justification. Le catalogue raisonné des livres illustrés de l'artiste publié par Cramer semble ignorer cette particularité.Quant au Balzac il fait en quelque sorte écho graphique au "Chef-d'oeuvre inconnu", publié chez Vollard en 1931 et magistralement illustré par l'artiste; ce dernier n'y avait alors point fait figurer un portrait l'auteur comme c'est le cas ici.Rare paire des tirages de tête constituant l'intégralité des contributions du portraitiste à cet ensemble, publié par l'éditeur de l'Imprimerie Nationale qui fit également paraître le "Picasso lithographe" de Mourlot.Une affaire de famille.(Goeppert-Cramer 65, 202)

        Designs for a Nash Metropolitan Station Wagon

      [New York: 1956]. Pencil and pastel on paper, mildly soiled and creased. 15 1/2 x 35 3/4 inches visible. Framed. 25 1/4 x 45 inches. 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.
