        Signed Photograph

      Oblong 1957 photograph of the renowned American architect and the renowned American poet, both ex-Chicagoans and old friends, boldly signed by each in the lower blank margin. Original photograph by Art Siegel, 7 1/2 x 9". On verso, notations record the place each autograph was obtained: Sandburg's in Flat Rock, North Carolina and Wright's in Scottsdale, Arizona (January, 1958). A few areas of surface loss to the image which have been in-painted with dye, and an area of evident creasing or tearing repaired by a clumsily affixed small adhesive, light paper skinning on the lower edge, none of these faults affecting either of the signatures. Simply matted and framed under plexiglass. Signed photographs of Wright are very rare.The image depicts these two great American originals as they met to appear together in 1957 on television's Omnibus, hosted by Alistair Cooke. They were old friends by this point, having met as young men in Oak Park, Illinois and had been close for nearly half a century. Around this time, they also participated together in a lively discussion, eventually published in Long Island's 'Newsday,' under the headline "Meeting of the Titans." That encounter concluded when the interviewer Alicia Patterson asked "What do you think of each other?" Wright spoke first: "I wouldn't have any one of my friends improved....I like Carl as he is." Sandburg answered: "I think I will [write] a Frankl Lloyd Wright poem and it will have music and it will have dimensions in it." When Wright asked: "Third dimensions?" Sandburg replied: "I will even suggest a fourth one."

        Triad and Tabut. A survey of the origin and diffusion of Chinese and Mohamedan Secret Societies in the Malay Peninsula A. D. 1800-1935.

      Singapore: Printed at the Government Printing Office, 1941 (1957) - 2 parts bound as one, folio (340 x 215 mm). Contemporary green quarter calf, gilt lettered spine, green cloth sides. Light wear to spine. A very good copy. First and only edition of this fascinating and detailed history of Malay secret societies, published as "confidential for authorised issue only". Although well represented institutionally (Copac locates 16 complete copies in British and Irish institutional libraries, OCLC around two dozen worldwide), it is uncommon commercially. The Foreword to Part I (dated 1957) is by the former colonial secretary for Singapore, W. L. Blythe, who writes "the author had hoped to continue his work by a more detailed analysis of the activities of particular societies in Malaya, but owing to the Japanese occupation of Malaya during which he died, this was never completed. Wynne wrote at a time when Chinese Secret Society activity was just about at its lowest ebb in Malaya. For years there had been few prosecutions of persons for comparative study and of members and officials of such societies who could be interrogated". He then adds that "as the material contained in this book may be of interest and use to a wider group of research workers, permission has been given by the Governments of the Federation of Malaya and the Colony of Singapore for the issue of such copies as still remain, to libraries and centres of learning"; to which a pencilled marginal note adds: "partly true". There are a number of pencilled marginal notes clearly by someone familiar with the subject. A publisher's note at the end of the Foreword states that "throughout this work, references will be found to various Appendices, but these did not survive the Japanese occupation of Malaya. There are also references to 'Part II' and to chapters numbered from XXII onwards. These concern the projected second part of this work which was planned and partly written but was unfinished at the time of the Japanese occupation". Part II, present here, is often absent. Mervyn Llewelyn Wynne (c.1891-1942) was a Dublin-born officer with the Malayan Police, who had been deputy inspector general Straits Settlements Police Force, after serving with the Rifle Brigade (Prince Consort's Own) 1914-1922; he died in internment at Sumatra. Triad and Tabut was issued at the height of what the British refer to as the Malayan Emergency (1948-1960) when Commonwealth armed forces fought a protracted guerilla war against the Malayan National Liberation Army; it is quoted extensively in Anoma Pieris, Hidden Hands and Divided Landscapes: a penal history of Singapore's plural society, 2009.

        The King Ranch

      King Ranch, Kingsville, TX 1957 - FIRST EDITION, SPECIAL LIMITED "SADDLE BLANKET ISSUE" produced exclusively for the King Ranch; one of 3000 copies printed, none intended for sale. One of the most important books on the history of Texas. Illustrated throughout. "The two volumes of this work [The King Ranch] will be a lasting pleasure to own. That is, indeed a most inadequate understatement? The heart of the matter is, of course, the writing itself--the thing told and the way of telling. In this work the illustrations are a part of the telling, for they are the product of the same hand that has done most of the writing, Tom Lea's? In the case of The King Ranch the worth of the story and its double telling has been matched by the taste and skill of famed Southwestern book designer J. Carl Hertzog, and El Paso Rosanin, and by the finest efforts of printer and binder. The product as a whole is one rarely matched in the whole history of American publishing--indeed a work one can be proud, in every sense, to own" (John T. Frederick, The Rotarian). Kingsville, TX: Printed for the King Ranch, 1957. Octavo, original tan and brown heavy crash linen in the design of the saddle blankets woven and used on the King Ranch. Two volumes in original slipcase.Handsome presentation inscription (1957) on flyleaf. Vol I hinge with paper split (but holding), wear to edges on leather label on box (as usual due to the softness of the leather). An exquisite production. [Attributes: First Edition]

        balzacs en bas de casse et picassos sans majuscule.

      Paris, Galerie Louise Leiris, 1957. o. Pag. [9 Bll. + 8 Tafeln + 1 Bl.] Lose Blattsammlung in OLwd.-Mappe. In franz. Sprache. Nr. 49 von 112 num. Expl. Mit der eighd. Signatur von Picasso. Mit allen Tafeln und der kl. Abbildung der Tafel II auf dem Impressum. - Mappe m. Gbrsp., St. a. Mappenklappe, Präge-St. a. ersten Bl., geringfügig stockfleckig a. unteren Kanten, geringe Gbrsp. - Leiris, (1901 - 1990), dessen literarische Neigung schon früh zutage tritt, wird von seiner Familie zu einem Studium der Chemie genötigt. Dennoch gewinnt er in der Zeit nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg Anschluss an die avantgardistischen Künstlerzirkel der Epoche, insbesondere dem Surrealismus; rasch befreundet er sich mit Max Jacob, André Masson, Picasso, Joan Miró und anderen. Diese Verbindung hält bis ins Jahr 1929, wonach er die Gruppe verlässt, um größere künstlerische Selbständigkeit zu erlangen. Leiris beginnt ein Studium der Ethnologie und gewinnt Kontakt zu Georges Batailles, für dessen Zeitschrift „Documents“ er sich redaktionell engagiert. In Deutschland ist Leiris vor allem durch seinen autobiographischen Roman „Mannesalter“ (1939) bekannt geworden. Techniken seiner surrealistischen Lehrjahre, psychoanalytische Selbstbefragung und ein auf die Deutung des eigenen Lebens gerichtetes ethnologisches Instrumentarium definierten das Genre der Autobiographie neu.

First edition limited to 1000 copies.Carl Wheat's Mapping of the Trans-Mississippi West is a comprehensive and readable cartographic history of the American West. The first three volumes of the work are by necessity bulky and out sized to accommodate the many maps contained with their covers. These beautifully printed books present a truly graphic picture of the exploration and peopling of the vast unknown land west of the Mississippi. The author does not merely present a catalog of significant maps of each era but tells the exciting story of many facets of history that resulted in their making-of the hard journeys, the hazardous exploits, the motivation, the mysticism, the misunderstandings and the strange blend of fact, imagination, false geographic concept and political necessity which were consummated in the engraver's work. These volumes will provide exciting text for the casual reader and have become eminent source book for the student and scholar.Condition:A near fine set.
