        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'.

        The Making of the King James Bible: A Monograph, with Comparisons from the Bishops Bible and the Manuscript Annotations of 1602, with an Original Leaf from the Great "She" Bible of 1611.

      Los Angeles: Plantin Press for Dawson's Book Shop, 1956. Folio. 31pp. One of 290 copies printed at the Plantin Press for Dawson's Book Shop. Though this title usually only includes one original leaf, this particular copy contains two, one from the Book of Proverbs and another from the Book of Matthew, both with two woodcut initials. The "Great She Bible of 1611" is really a corrected version printed in 1613 of the "Great He Bible of 1611", in which a typographic error results in the Book of Ruth having a "he", referring to Boaz, placed where a "she", referring to Ruth, should be. The "Great She Bible" is thus the second authorized printing of the King James Bible, with the "He" version being the first. Willoughby's comprehensive monograph on the King James Bible discusses the factors that impacted the first printing, and is illustrated with facsimiles from the 1611 edition. Leaves show some foxing and minor wear to edges, else fine. Bound in quarter cloth and printed boards in glassine. Some rubbing to corners and mark on front board. Near fine overall. Bookplate. (BCC #45; Chalmers 113, p. 84).

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd,, 1956-8. 4 volumes bound in 2, large octavo (240 x 150 mm). Bound by the Harcourt bindery in near-contemporary blue crushed morocco, spine gilt lettered direct, spine gilt to compartments within five raised bands, double gilt fillet to covers, gilt roll-tooled turn-ins, blue marbled endpapers, top edges gilt (removing the original red). Illustrated with maps and genealogical tables. Spines heavily faded, covers slightly faded around edges, minor marking to top edges. Initial blanks and the last blanks of volumes II and III removed by binder. An excellent set. First edition, first impressions, of Churchill's famous History, bound together in a handsome set. Churchill began his history of the British Empire and the United States during his period in the political wilderness in the early 1930s, but did not complete it until after his retirement 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" between Britain and the United States. 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 War of Independence, and a full third of the final volume, The Great Democracies, contains a detailed study of the American Civil War.

Included among the autographs are those of PRINCE BERNHARD, as well as those of the American magazine magnate HENRY LUCE and the notorious CIA OPERATIVE ENNO HOBBING who, as Bureau Chief of TIME MAGAZINE, led the COUP D'ETAT in GUATEMALA.

      [New York]: October 30th, 1956., 1956.. Fine. - Nineteen autographs penned on a gilt-edged, cream-colored page, 10-3/4 inches high by 8-3/4 inches wide, removed from the guest book of Grace Bristed Jackson and C. D. Jackson at the Dakota. Dated "Oct. 30th 1956", the signatures are identified along the top as those of guests present at a "Party in Honour of Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. 14 signatures are penned in a column along the left and another 5 signatures, including that of Prince Bernhard, are penned in a column at right. Near fine. Charles Douglas Jackson [known as "C.D."] and his wife Grace Bristed Jackson hosted parties and events at their apartment in the Dakota. Jackson worked on and off at Time magazine in an administrative capacity for many years and was made vice president of Time, Inc. in 1940. He was periodically sent on various diplomatic missions by Eisenhower. He also found time to serve on the boards of several organizations, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Free Europe Committee and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.The signatures along the left include those of:1) Axel Bussche-Streithorst [Axel von dem Bussche] (1919-1993). A World War II German officer who, as part of the German Resistance, planned to assassinate Adolf Hitler in 1943. Stationed on the Eastern front, Bussche had witnessed the massacre of over 3,000 Jewish civilians by the SS at the Dubno airport in Poland in 1942. Traumatized by the experience, he joined a resistance group within the army led by Count Stauffenberg. Selected to model new uniforms when Hitler was due to inspect these at his Fuhrerhauptquartier Wolfsschanze in November 1943, Bussche undertook to carry out a suicide bombing to kill the Fuhrer. His plans were thwarted when, the night before the event, an Allied air raid on Berlin destroyed the railway truck transporting the new uniforms. He volunteered to try again but was seriously wounded on the Eastern front in January of 1944, losing one of his legs. He was one of the very few who was not betrayed and thus survived the war.2) Hamilton Fish Armstrong (1893-1973), was a United States diplomat, author and editor. He worked for the New Republic and served as military attache in Serbia during the First World War. In 1922, Armstrong became editor of "Foreign Affairs", the journal of the Council on Foreign Relations, taking over as editor after Archibald Cary Coolidge's death in 1928. Armstrong authored several books including "The New Balkans" and "Hitler's Reich: The First Phase".3) Maria de Almagro Abreu.4) Brooke Astor (1902-2007) was an American philanthropist, socialite and writer. Brooke Astor chaired the Vincent Astor Foundation named after her third husband, the son of John Jacob Astor IV. Her father, John Henry Russell, Jr. was the 16th Commandant of the Marine Corps and Brooke Astor spent much of her childhood in China, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and other places where her father was stationed.5) Henry R. Luce (1898-1967) was one of the most influential persons of his day. The magazine magnate owned such well-known periodicals as Time magazine, Life, Fortune, and Sports Illustrated. Born in Tengchow, China to missionary parents he attended the Hotchkiss School and subsequently Yale, where he worked on the school newspapers. Blocked by FDR from covering the front during the Second World War, he was a staunch Republican and blatantly opposed FDR, subsequently appointing Whittaker Chambers as acting Foreign News editor in 1944. As part of the China Lobby he played a major role in shaping American sentiment in support of Chiang Kai-Shek and later demanded that Kennedy invade Cuba. He included Secreteray of State John Foster Dulles and CIA director Allen Dulles among his friends.6) Hamilton Armstrong.7) Willy Goudrian.8) Neil [?].9) Enno Hobbing. In his book "A Secret Order: Investigating the High Strangeness and Synchronicity in the JFK Assassination", H.P. Albarelli, Jr. writes the following about CIA operative Enno Hobbing: "In 2006 writer Thomas Bass, a professor at the University of Albany, stated in a radio interview: 'Many spies have worked for Time Magazine, at least the spies we know of, were, in fact, working for the Central Intelligence Agency. There's that very famous example of Time magazine Bureau Chief, Mr. Enno Hobbing, who was, in 1954, moved from Paris to Guatemala where he led the coup d'etat while working out of the offices of Time".10) George & Symphorosa Livermore.11) Dorothy Breck (spouse of Henry C. Breck).12) Edgar R. B[?].13) Henry C. Breck (Partner in J &W Seligman & Co., stock brokers).14) "Yet" (Henriette) Roosenberg (1916-1972). "Yet" Roosenberg was a Dutch journalist and political prisoner. A graduate student at the start of World War II, she became a courrier for the Dutch resistance serving under the code name "Zip" and wrote for the newspaper "Het Parool". Captured in 1944, she was sentenced to death and sent to a German prison at Waldheim. Freed in 1945, in order to care for another very sick former prisoner she and a few other prisoners stayed behind instead of boarding American trucks which would cross Russian lines to bring them back home to the Netherlands. Helping their friend to a hospital, the group then undertook the journey on their own. Accosted by Russians, they were sent to a "displaced persons camp" and, it was only after several adventures documented in her memoirs "The Walls Came Tumbling Down", that they finally made their way home. After the war, "Yet" Roosenburg became a correspondent for "Time, Inc.".Five more autographs are penned in a column at right. Heading the list is that of Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands (1911-2004), the German-born consort of Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. Opposed to Hitler, he banned the Swastika from the street bunting. The Dutch Royal family fled to England when Germany invaded the Netherlands in 1940 but Prince Bernhard insisted on returning to join Dutch troops fighting their final battle against the invaders. He was again forced to flee and returned to England. General Eisenhower appointed the Prince Commander-in-Chief of the Dutch Forces when Dutch troops, now aided by the allies, fought in France in 1944 and the Prince took charge of the Dutch resitance forces, playing a vital role in that country's war effort. Despite his heroic war record, Prince Bernhard's reputation was later overshadowed by his disgrace due to his involvement in the 1976 financial scandal involving the Dutch air force and Lockheed.We're unable to identify the next two signatures. Following these is the autograph of Simone de Lippe, the wife of Prince Aschwin and that of Prince Aschwin of Lippe-Biesterfeld (1914-1988). The younger brother of Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld, Prince Aschwin openly supported the Nazis and became an officer in the Wehrmacht. An expert in Chinese painting and Indian sculpture, he became a curator at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art after the war.

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.<<< ( Artikelnummer 15768 ) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

About Fine copy (slight color loss to spine folds and crown) of this small, fragile volume, which has become scarce in collectible condition. Shifreen & Jackson A100b. Kearney (Olympia Press) 20. Auer 364. A short novel, celebrating love, art, and the Bohemian life, along with a second story, "Mara-Marignan," both dating from the same period as Tropic of Cancer, when Miller was an obscure, penniless young writer in Paris. A few months after Miller returned to New York, in 1940, flat-broke, a quick moneymaking opportunity arose writing pornography for an Oklahoma erotica collector, named Roy M. Johnson. Early drafts of "Mara-Marignan" and "Quiet Days in Clichy" were the result. Johnson was not impressed; he found Miller's stories to be "too poetic," and the manuscripts went missing--"lost for over ten years," Miller wrote in 1956--then "turned up miraculously." Miller rewrote both stories, in Big Sur, in May of that year. This first edition was published in Paris, in June 1956, with photographs of 1930s Paris (street-scenes of prostitutes; sailors fondling women in cafes, young people flirting, kissing, dancing, and drinking) by Brassai.
