        Signed Photograph of John Hammond at the Newport Jazz Festival

      Newport, RI, 1957. unbound. Silver print, 10.75 x 13.75 inches, Styrofoam mounted, with Hoeffler's full signature, title, and date, in ink, along with his copyright hand stamp on the back. 1957; printed late 1970s. This print is described in the "Rochester Jazz" Photographic Collection as an Exhibition Print of "John Hammond enthusiastically responding to the Count Basie Band at Newport, July 1957." Sitting next to him is his wife Esme O'Brian Sarnoff, former spouse of Robert Sarnoff, Chairman of NBC and RCA Corp. Note: Hammond is considered one of the greatest discoverers of musical talent during the 20th century and is responsible for the careers of Billie Holiday, Count Basie, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen. Condition: This photograph was originally owned and displayed by Hoeffler as an Exhibition Print and, through handling, there are some minor imperfections, including some surface striations (almost invisible) and flatness and rounding at the corners. Very good(-) condition. American photographer best remembered for his iconic images of the American Jazz scene of the 1950s and 60s, and whose work was prominently featured in the Ken Burns acclaimed documentary "Jazz." He began this work while pursuing his BFA in Photography at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) where he studied with mentors Minor White and Charles Arnold and visiting photographers Ansel Adams, Ernst Hass, Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstadt, Beaumont and Nancy Newhall.

        L'exile et le royaume [Exile and the Kingdom]

      Paris: Gallimard. First edition. original wrappers. Very Good. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF CAMUS'S MAJOR WORKS, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY CAMUS on half-title: ''a Madame Francoise Perret / en [???] hommage / Albert Camus''. "The loneliness of the individual, the sense of foreigners in one's own land and of isolation in one's own society, is the underlying theme of the six short stories that make up Camus's Exile and the Kingdom (1957), in which 'exile' is treated in a variety of ways depending on whether it is geographical or moral in character. In this mature work, Camus appears for the most part to have left behind the darkness and violence of the war and postwar years, and to acknowledge at least a possibility of transcending the crippling limitations of everyday life…" (Alba Amoia, "Albert Camus's 'Exile' and 'The Kingdom'). The recipient, Francoise Perret (1919-1986), was an influential Swiss journalist and politician. First edition, first printing ("4 Mars 1957"), "service de press" issue. Paris: Gallimard, 1957. Octavo, original wrappers; glassine; custom box. Some toning to spine, otherwise fine. Rare signed and inscribed.

      Gr. 8 (25 x 18 cm). Orig.-Leinenbände mit Goldprägung und Original-Schutzumschlag in Orig.-Pappschubern. [Hardcover / fest gebunden]. Leinengebundene und fadengeheftete Originalausgabe der 3., völlig neu bearbeiteten und maßgeblichen Auflage in sehr gutem und frischen Zustand. - Aus dem Klappentext: "Als "LThK" ist das Lexikon für Theologie und Kirche zum Markenzeichen für theologische und auch historische Kompetenz geworden. Es gehört, mit seinen Vorgängern, seit nahezu 150 Jahren zu den großen, international anerkannten Standardwerken, die sowohl für die Wissenschaft als auch für die kirchliche Praxis unentbehrlich sind. - Theologie in einer veränderten Welt: Seit dem Erscheinen der letzten Auflage des Lexikons in den Jahren 1957 bis 1965 haben sich die Zeiten tiefgehend gewandelt, auch für Theologie und Kirche. Das Zweite Vatikanische Konzil hat den Grund gelegt für eine neue Epoche. Die Liturgiereform, das neue Kirchenrecht, die Aufwertung der Bischofskonferenzen und andere Entwicklungen haben das Bild der katholischen Kirche nachhaltig verändert. Der ökumenische Austausch mit den nichtkatholischen christlichen Kirchen, besonders auch die stärkere Einbeziehung der orthodoxen Kirche, die christlich-jüdische Begegnung und das Gespräch mit den Weltreligionen haben das theologische Denken geweitet. Neue Formen von Religiosität außerhalb und das Auftreten neuer Fundamentalismen innerhalb der verfaßten Religionsgemeinschaften fordern Theologie und Kirche heraus und rufen nach tragfähigen Antworten. Die Vorzeichen einer einheitlichen Weltzivilisation und ein wachsendes solidarisches Verantwortungsbewußtsein für die sogenannte Dritte Welt, Gerechtigkeit und Frieden, die Bewahrung der Schöpfung und die Einhaltung der Menschenrechte einschließlich der Gleichberechtigung der Frau drängen auf eine angemessene theologische Berücksichtigung. Die Auseinandersetzung mit den Ergebnissen der modernen Profanwissenschaften vom Menschen, stellt die Theologie vor bislang unbekannte Aufgaben. - Das neue LThK: Damit das Lexikon für Theologie und Kirche angesichts dieser Situation auch in Zukunft seinen Rang behält und den vielfältigen Erwartungen seiner Benutzer entsprechen kann, wurde eine vollständige Neubearbeitung erforderlich. Sie behält den Grundcharakter dieses Lexikons bei. Das Lexikon für Theologie und Kirche bleibt eine alle Gebiete der Theologie umfassende Enzyklopädie, die wie wenige andere Lexika das kulturell-historische Wissen von der Antike bis zur Gegenwart einbezieht. Zugleich nimmt es sich aber der Themen an, denen heute innertheologisch sowie theologisch-interdisziplinär eine besondere Aufmerksamkeit gebührt: Ökumene, Weltreligionen, Christentum und Kultur. Kirche und Gesellschaft. Theologie und Natur- wie Humanwissenschaften. Hermeneutik und Wissenschaftstheorie. Das neue LThK stellt sich den Anforderungen des wachsenden innerkirchlichen und gesellschaftlichen Pluralismus und verbindet Eindeutigkeit im Grundsätzlichen mit praxisorientierter Offenheit. Es ist kirchlich, wissenschaftlich und lebensnah verantwortet und zuverlässig, problembewußt und zukunftsweisend abgefaßt. (...)" - Mit einigen Bleistiftanstreichungen in Band 1 und 7. - Insgesamt nahezu tadellos erhaltenes Exemplar.

        Photograph Album - Rare - North Korea Life After War - China - Vietnam - Album of a Polish Diplomat

      North Korea, 1957. Wonsan, Pyongyang, North Korea, February 1957 - March 1959. Album of photographs taken by a Polish man whose stay in North Korea was at least two years, and who was most likely a peace-keeping delegate of the NNSC (Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission) which had been established in 1953 to protect and support North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, DPRK. [From 1954-1959 the Polish ambassador was Jedrzej Siedlecki.] Contains 126 gelatin silver print photographs and 1 sketch image postcard, tipped-in, black cardstock leaves separated with tissue guards. In addition, 4 postcards from Pyongyang, 54 photographic views of China, and 19 views of Vietnam are included at the end of the album. A neatly and methodically organized album with manuscript headings serving as general captions. Photographs vary slightly in size, the majority measuring approximately 11 x 8 cm, the smallest approximately 8 x 6 cm, and the largest approximately 13 x 8,5 cm. Oblong 8vo. elegantly illustrated cloth album measuring approximately 25 x 35 x 4 cm. Very slight wear to boards mainly to corners and upper hinge, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a rare and substantial album of photographs from North Korea. At the end of the Korean War, by virtue of the Korean War Armistice Agreement of 27 July 1953, North Korea, together with the Chinese People's Volunteer Army, invited Poland to become one of the four members of the NNSC (Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission), to carry out the functions of armistice supervision, observation, inspection, and investigation, effectively to ensure peace. The armistice declared a complete cessation of all hostilities in Korea by all armed forces, and established a Military Demarcation Line between North and South Korea. The Military Armistice Commission (MAC) and the NNSC shared the important mission of supervising and controlling the implementation of the armistice agreement. The two headquarters of those supervisory bodies were located in the small village of Panmunjom, precisely at the line of cease fire, in an area called the "joint security area". Initially a force of 300 some men in 1953, beginning in 1955 the NNSC began decreasing its presence in numbers. By 1959 only 35 Polish members remained in North Korea. This album has been compiled by a Polish man of some diplomatic importance, as he is seen departing with three of his colleagues after a stay of two years or more, and receiving a formal farewell in North Korean tradition. Further research is warranted and may find the album to be that of one of the NNSC representatives who left Korea in 1959, or perhaps even Jerzy Siedlecki (1907-1996), a Colonel in the Polish People's Army who was the Polish ambassador in North Korea from 1954 to 1959. This album contains excellent views of North Korea and the daily life of civilians during the early years of Kim Il-sung's remodeling of the nation with his radically nationalistic ideology of autonomy. Korean civilians are seen living peacefully after the Korean War, in part owing to the peace-keeping presence of the NNSC. Compiled by a Polish resident, perhaps Polish ambassador Jerzy Siedlecki who was there at the time, the photographs are largely centered in the environs of the important cities of Wonsan and Pyongyang, and at Mount Kumgang which is commonly known as Diamond Mountain. One photograph appears to show Panmunjom, where the 1953 Korean Armistice Agreement was signed, and where the residences of the NNSC were situated. A few are also taken at Kaesong, the only city to have changed control from South Korea to North Korea as a result of the war. The man visits a foundry, and a site of construction which might be factory or hospital being erected, which is congruent with the post-war aid provided by the NNSC. Highlights from Wonsan, the port city and naval base in Kangwon Province, are the striking images of the North Korean people going about their day performing traditional tasks, some in small villages nearby. Simple thatched-roof homes are constructed precariously close to the seashore. Women prepare food manually in large pots while crouched on the ground, while another carries innumerable dried fish to market. Although motorcars are occasionally seen in photographs, the general populace was still using oxen pulled carts to carry produce and merchandise, and handmade wooden fishing boats at sea. At the foot of a tiered rice paddy, he photographs a subdivison of uniform homes erected in perfect rows. One image captures the opening parade of an outdoor basketball competition attended by a multitude of spectators. The North Korea flag, officially adopted on September 9, 1948, is prominent in this image. Its two blue stripes signified sovereignty, peace and friendship, the white stripes purity, while red represented Communism. The photographer visits temples and shrines, travelling through exquisite mountain valleys. Long before tourism was promoted in the region, he made a thorough trekking exploration of Diamond Mountain which renders now exceedingly rare photographs of the earliest and very modest hotel, compared by a larger one which had recently been constructed. Kuryong Falls, a simple swinging foot bridge, and the Pyohunsa Temple are also photographed. [Mt Kumgang and the Geumgangsan Diamond Mountains are a spectacular range of 12,000 volcanic pinnacles which are held in religious awe by many Koreans. and form a dramatic view of saw-toothed ridges and volcanic pinnacles. A challenging 1.6 km climb reaches the summit.] On a page captioned "Panmundzon" [Panmunjom] we actually find photographs of the lovely Korean Buddhist temple called Anhwa-sa and located in the historic city of Kaesong, North Korea. Founded under the Koryo dynasty in 930 AD, it is the only one to have survived the Korean War. Interior views include Taeung Hall which contains the temple's main shrine, and Obaek Hall which is adorned with a plethora of small Buddhist statues. The Polish man sits at the base of the original pagoda monument at the entrance. On the same page is a photograph of an ancient gate, which may have also been obliterated in the war. A distant view of a military style complex, found on the next leaf, might in fact be a photograph of Panmunjom. Two photographs capture a visit to the royal tomb of King Kongmin, captioned "groby królewskie" and featuring a close-up photograph of two statues on what is referrred to locally as the Spirit Road. [The Tomb of King Kongmin, more correctly, the Hyonjongrung Royal Tomb, is a 14th-century mausoleum, lined with statues of military officers and Confucian officials. It is located in Haeson-ri, Kaepung County just outside the city of Kaesong.] From the capital city of Pyongyang, the Polish delegate and three of his colleagues are leaving the city by train. Posing in front of a government building, possibly at Kim Il-sung Square, together with Korean officials, each was presented with a parting bouquet from a farewell party of young Korean ladies. Before returning home, he made a sojourn to China, visiting Peking (Beijing), Shanghai, Canton (Guangzhou), and then to Hanoi in Vietnam. Diplomatic relations between Poland and North Korea had begun in October 1948 when the government of North Korea announced the foundation of the DPRK and proposed to Poland that the two nations establish diplomatic relations. The government of the People's Republic of Poland in turn recognized the DPRK and accepted the proposal. On 6 July 1950, both governments signed an agreement to exchange ambassadors. Poland's first diplomatic representative in North Korea was Stanislaw Dodin, who started his mission on 7 September 1948 as chargé d?affaires. The first ambassador to North Korea was Juliusz Burgin who had been accredited to the government of the People?s Republic of China in Bejing. Some of his successors ambassador were Stanislaw Kiryluk 1952-1954, Jedrzej Siedlecki 1954-1959, Józef Dryglas 1959-1964; Wladyslaw Napieraj 1964-1968, and so on. At the end of the Korean War, the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission (NNSC) was established by the Korean Armistice Agreement signed July 27, 1953. Together with the United Nations Command Military Armistice Commission (UNCMAC), it is responsible for regulating relations between North and South Korea [the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK, North Korea) and the Republic of Korea (ROK, South Korea)]. The term "neutral nations" was defined as those nations whose combat forces did not participate in the hostilities in Korea. According to the Armistice, the NNSC was and is to be composed of four senior officers. The United Nations Command chose Switzerland and Sweden, while the Korean People's Army and Chinese People's Volunteers together chose Czechoslovakia and Poland for the peace-keeping task. The NNSC was supported by twenty Neutral Nations Inspection Teams, ten of which were permanently located at ports in North and South Korea, and ten being mobile teams. The Swiss and Swedish teams were modest in size, relying on their hosts to provide personnel support, vehicles, and communication equipment to report back to the Supervisory Commission. The Czech and Polish teams large and self-sufficient, including heavy radio trucks, interpreters, cooks and mess equipment. The first Polish contingent to the NNSC numbered 301 people, including 42 from outside the Ministry of Defense. The first meeting of the NNSC was conducted on August 1, 1953 at Panmunjom. Poland was represented by Major General Mieczyslaw Wagrowski. Owing to similarities in their political ideologies and systems, relations between Poland and North Korea were very close during the 1950s and 1960s. Poland supported North Korea during the Korean War by providing various goods and military equipment. Poland also provided humanitarian assistance by taking in North Korean children who had been orphaned as a result of the Korean War, placing in orphanages in Poland, some 200 at Golotczyzna, and others at Swider near Otwock. In 1953, at the end of the Korean War, 1,270 North Korean orphans came to live in the village of Plaskowice near Lwówek Slaski. By 1959, some 6,000 North Korean war orphans lived in Poland. They gained an education in Poland and learned the Polish language. Upon returning to North Korea, many of them joined the diplomatic corps or academic fields. Throughout the 1950s, economic exchanges and cooperation between the two countries increased. On 28 July 1953, the Presidium of the Polish Cabinet passed a resolution to provide the DPRK with aid to rebuild its economy, subsequently building and repairing existing factories, reconstructing coal mines, and establishing a hospital. From the 1950s, Polish Land Forces have contributed troops to peacekeeping operations, initially through the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission in Korea. However, not long after its inception, especially between August 1954 and July 1955, the NNSC began to experience difficulties to perform the duties of inspection and such, mainly because their efforts were concentrated in disputes instigated by the United States of America and supported by the UNMAC. The US accused the NNSC of engaging in activities harmful to the UN, including espionage, and therefore promoted dissolution of the Commission. At the start of 1955, the South Korean chief of police encouraged Czechoslovak and Polish NNSC members to leave the country "peacefully" since their personal safety could not be guaranteed. At the same time, the UNC/MAC (UN Command/Military Armistice Commission) had announced that traffic at three ports of entry in the South would be terminated. On 31 January, 1955 the UNC Commander proposed to the US Ministry of Defense that since the NNSC severely obstructed the UNC?s military activities, the Commission should be abolished. Within the NNSC, Sweden and Switzerland supported the USA-South Korea proposal to dissolve it, but the argument was that the Commission was inefficient and therefore unnecessary. Due to the growing difficulties to perform its tasks, Sweden was willing to leave the NNSC in 1956. Yet, in order to maintain peaceful relations with communist countries such as China and the Soviet Union, both Sweden and Switzerland opposed the United States policy and refused to withdraw. Instead, it was decided to reduce the inspection teams by one, in both North and South Korea. On the other hand, China and North Korea wanted both the NNSC and the Armistice Agreement to remain; they were supported by the Soviet Union, Poland and Czechoslovakia. The tour-of-duty rotations for personnel of the Polish mission in Korea was typically 9 to 11 months. As early as March 1955, the manpower of the Polish mission was gradually being reduced, as was the scope of the practical activities of the NNSC. The number of Polish personnel per rotation decreased over the next few years. There were 300 personnel for the second rotation in 1954-1955; 88 personnel for the third rotation; and only 35 personnel for the fourth rotation. In 1960 the Polish mission had only 10 personnel, and by 1968, it had decreased to 9. On 31 May, 1956 the Senior Member of UNC/MAC, General Robert G. Gard, declared at the 70th MAC meeting that the validity of all provisions in the Armistice Agreement "... regulating the activities of the NNSC and its Inspection Teams in South Korea, was suspended." He ordered the inspection teams in Inchon, Pusan and Kunsan to withdraw within ten days. These extraordinary measures were "...justified by violations of the Armistice Agreement by the North and the obstructive attitudes of the Polish and Czechoslovak NNSC representatives." After much negotiation, on June 9, 1956 the Commission agreed to withdraw all of its inspection teams in the North from Sinuiju, Manpo and Sinanju, and in the South from Inchon, Pusan and Kunsan. The Swedish team was reduced to 11 men by August 18th. About the same time, the Czechoslovakian and Polish teams each numbered about 25 men. When the reduced teams were withdrawn to Panmunjom, the NNSC became incapable to conduct inspections. Their work would instead mainly consist of analysis of reports. [According to Mueller-Lhotska (1997), "The way the suspension was realized by the South constituted a violation of the internationally observed courtesy minimum..." And, according to the South Korean scholar Kim Bo Young, the suspension of the NNSC's work in 1956 had been made for stationing "more modern and efficient weapons," referring to such dual capable weapons as guided missiles with capacity to load nuclear war-heads in South Korea. On 14 May, 1957, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles announced at a press conference that the Americans would bring atomic warheads to South Korea to meet the Syngman Rhee government's request.] Notably, in spring 1959, President Rhee, in an interview with Radio Lausanne, recognized the work of Sweden and Switzerland through the NNSC. The positive evaluations affirmed that the NNSC continued to secure peace in spite of the fact that its original mandate had ceased to exist. From June 1956 until 1993 Poland was an active part of the NNSC. When communism fell in Poland and Czechoslovakia, the Korean People's Army took over the camps. In 1989, Poland lost its status as a "friend" and its privileged position with the DPRK. Despite the change from communism to capitalism in Poland in 1989, and Poland's establishing relations with South Korea, relations between Poland and DPRK retain reasonable and fair relations. Today in fact, Poland is one of the few countries that maintain diplomatic and limited trading (fishing) relations with Democratic People's Republic of Korea. North Korea maintains an embassy in Warsaw. Poland maintains an embassy in Pyongyang. Poland also provides North Korea with small grants in farming equipment, medicine etc. Jerzy Siedlecki (1907-1996) was a Colonel in the Polish People's Army (Ludowe Wojsko Polskie). By August 1944 he was the head of the Section of Inquiry, at the Ministry of Public Security of Poland (Ministerstwo Bezpieczenstwa Publicznego, MBP) which was a postwar communist, secret police, intelligence and counter-espionage service. In 1946 he was Head of the MBP's Information Office, remaining in office as a public official until 1954. After the Korean War, from 1954-1959 he was selected to represent Poland, officially the Polish People's Republic (PRL), as an ambassador in Pyongyang. He was a member of the Communist Party of Western Ukraine, the Polish Workers' Party, and the Communist Party of Poland.

Funkcjonariuszy MBP w latach 1949-1954, zastepca kierownika tego wydzialu w 1946, kierownik Biura Informacji Departamentu I MBP, kierownik Sekcji Sledczej Resortu Bezpieczenstwa Publicznego od sierpnia 1944.

        The Firebird" - Autograph Musical Quotation

      - Autograph musical quotation from one of the important composer's most beloved works, The Firebird, signed and inscribed by Stravinsky and dated Hollywood, January 1957. He has neatly penned one measure (m. 9) from the bassoon part of the evocative, quiet introduction to the ballet on a small piece of manuscript paper, and inscribed it to the collector Lionel Aucoin (which could easily be matted out of view). The title "The FireBird" is typed at the head. A bold quotation and signature. 3.75 x 8.75 inches (9.3 x 22.3 cm.)Composed for the 1910 Paris season of Diaghilev's Ballets Russes with choreography by Michel Fokine, Stravinsky's "Firebird" was first performed on 25 June 1910. Based on Russian folk tales of the magical glowing bird of the same name that is both a blessing and a curse to its captor, the ballet centers on the journey of its hero, Prince Ivan, who enters the magical realm of Kashchei the Immortal.  With "Firebird," "Stravinsky became famous overnight.Stravinsky learned well from Rimsky-Korsakov and equaled his master in orchestral opulence. The score is an enchantment, and its individual numbers - from the Infernal Dance to the Berceuse - exude the fragrance of Russianism in the grand tradition, with added dissonant spice. Stravinsky's first important work remains a favorite." (David Dubal)

Jose Manuel Capuletti was perhaps Rand&#146;s favorite painter, and she collected his works avidly. She wrote in 1966, &#147;to the extent that one may detect certain dominant values in different cultures, one could say the work of Capuletti has the passionate intensity of Spain, the elegance of France, and the joyous, benevolent freedom of America.&#148; &#147;The book made Rand a hero to many business owners, executives, and self-identified capitalists, who were overjoyed to discover a novel that acknowledged, understood, and appreciated their work She presented a spiritualized version of America&#146;s market system, creating a compelling vision of capitalism that drew on traditions of self-reliance and individualism but also presented a forward-looking, even futuristic ideal of what a capitalist society could be Rand&#146;s defense of wealth and merit freed capitalists from both personal and social guilt simultaneously In Rand business had found a champion, a voice that could articulated its claim to prominence in American life&#148; (Burns, Goddess of the Market: Ayn Rand and the American Right).
