        A very upset Princess Grace writes her MGM agent ?Like a fool ? I signed this note which will give Gant Gaither permission to write what ever he likes ? He sent me the galleys. I nearly collapsed when I saw the cover. The Story of Grace Kelly. I just couldn?t believe it ? I found the whole thing so unbearably personal and in bad taste??

      [Switzerland], Thursday, [Aug 29/Sep 1957]. 8.25" x 10.5". "Typed Letter Signed ?Grace,? 2p, 8.25? x 10.5?, separate sheets. [Switzerland], Thursday [August 29 / September 1957]. To her MGM press agent, Morgan [Hudgins]. Lightweight paper. Fine condition.On July 3, 1957, Princess Grace and Prince Rainier began a two month vacation in a chalet in Schonreid, Switzerland. ?Princess of Monaco: The Story of Grace Kelly? by Gant Gaither was published by Henry Holt & Company in New York on August 26,1957. Gant Gaither had known Grace Kelly since she was an apprentice actress in Bucks County Playhouse, in New Hope, Pennsylvania. In 1949, at the age of 19, she made her stage debut there in ?The Torchbearers? written by her uncle, 1926 Pulitzer Prize winning playwright George Kelly.In full, ?Just received your letter concerning the Imperial Ball. Please tell them for me that we very much appreciate their kind invitation but it is impossible for us to be there at that date. Conrad Hilton asked us to the same affair last year. It is just too far for one evening and November is a very busy time for us in Monaco. Thanks so much for your very newsy letter of July 24th. The statement of Mr. Vogel was quite something. What a pity there is so much confusion and jealousy it makes it so much more difficult.?Gant is very amusing and great fun to be around and he was always so sweet and such a good friend to me. That is why I was so hurt and disappointed when he chose [next five words are handwritten] the loyaltie (& royalties) of Henry Holt instead of considering a friendship. I was a bit embarrassed when Gant first asked me if he could write a book (that would be mostly photographs) of the wedding and Monaco. It was an odd thing for a friend to want to do but because he was a friend I said yes. He felt I had doubts and assured me that it would be done with great taste and I would certainly be pleased. He also said if I wasn?t that he wouldn?t do it. You know how I hate personal things printed and Gant knows that too.?In New York he told me that a few changes were being made and I begged to see any part of it as I was getting anxious as to how the story was being changed. Gant always said that it was in such a rough state that he couldn?t show it. Finally in March or the end of Feb. He sent me the galleys. I nearly collapsed when I saw the cover. The Story of Grace Kelly. I just couldn?t believe it. Gant has an amusing way of tell-[ing] a story but in print it loses the humour and I found the whole thing so unbearably personal and in bad taste and the few things I asked him to take out - from what I have seen quoted in columns were never taken out. I should have learned that lesson long ago but I don?t know why I am such a sucker to go on believing people. No writer yet has ever kept his word about cuts. Gant has me saying things that I have never uttered and that is the most infuriating part. Anything a person has said that I have been in the same room with is always attributed to me. I should be used to it but I guess I never will.?On the Constitution before landing in Monaco [for her April 19, 1956 wedding] Gant asked me to write him a letter or note saying that I approved of the project. Like a fool I did without mentioning a title or anything. I didn?t fully realise what it was about and what exactly the note was for (As I was not really at my mental best at the time) So I signed this note which will give Gant Gaither permission to write what ever he likes and as long as he likes about me. I am stuck.?The fact that the book is boring and full of slop is not the point and with all of the other slop that has been written I am really beyond caring very much but the principle of the thing annoys hell out of me, that I could have been such a sucker and that a friend took advantage of me. I don?t believe Gant would have change the idea of the book if Henry Holt co. hadn?t asked him to but he considered them and everyone else before me. Besides a friend?s job above all is discretion. Enough about that. It is something I would like to forget.?We have had a wonderful summer here in Switzerland and I hate the thought of going home. Our Baby has a tooth and Oliver is the father of six beautiful puppies. I am not looking forward to the trip to Monaco with nine dogs, not to mention baby and equipment, two days of driving. Burt Lancaster would be wonderful as Ben Hur. When you?re in Italy you must stop by in Monaco at some point. It would be so nice to see you. Give my best to all. Fondly.?"

      , , 1957. Ottimo (Fine). Fotografia originale in bianco e nero firmata a penna dall'Artista, timbrata e titolata al verso (''Scanno'', Mario Giacomelli, Via Mastai 24, 60019 Senigallia, An). Pubblicata in Enzo Carli, ''Giacomelli. La forma dentro. Fotografie 1952-1995'', catalogo della mostra di Senigallia, Rocca Roveresca 1995. Cm 29,8x 38,8. . Ottimo (Fine). . Mario Giacomelli realizza la serie fotografica su Scanno tra il 1957 e il 1959; in un periodo storico caratterizzato dalla querelle sul Meridione d'Italia. Questo paesino abruzzese era già stato meta di fotografi illustri tra i quali il grande Henri Cartier Bresson (e, recentemente, Gianni Berengo Gardin), attratti dalla semplicità e naturalezza dei personaggi che popolavano questo povero paese del sud, abitato da vecchi e vecchine, figure lontane avvolte nei caratteristici tabarri. Giacomelli non ha realizzato con le sue fotografie un'indagine sociale né un'operazione di maquillage fotografico, bensì una trascrizione poetica di una vita che pulsa al ritmo di una memoria antica. E qui più che mai bisogna tener conto del punto di vista di Giacomelli al quale Scanno ''appare'' improvvisamente come quella entità reale idealizzata nella sua memoria,che ritrova con tanta forza al punto che, appena arrivato a Scanno, dalla fretta e dall'entusiasmo di fotografare, si lancia con irruenza dalla macchina, una Fiat Topolino guidata dall'amico Renzo Tortelli, provocandosi escoriazioni al ginocchio. Era già un viaggio annunciato nel segno dell'avventura; l'appuntamento con Tortelli a Civitanova e poi in macchina verso Scanno dove tutto gli appare magico, come scandito da un rituale antico. Giacomelli trasforma questo quotidiano in una dimensione magica proponendo la sua realtà per perpetuarne il ricordo. Scanno è così che appare e apparirà, spogliata da quei specifici referenti, la cui presenza potrebbe rallentare l'attenzione e la comprensione di questa saga incantata, animata da vecchine e vecchini, che non sono chiusi nell'angoscia dell'ospizio, ma liberi nello spazio della loro solenne dignità, nel proscenio della vita, angeli del buon sogno di Scanno. Dallo sfondo dei vecchi in piazza, col primo piano delle due comari, sorprese dalla ripresa, alle immagini della vita che trascorre in questo paese incantato dal cuore antico. Improvvisa l'apparizione del ragazzo, al centro degli alti e bassi dell'immagine, picco del tracciato visivo, quale allusiva metafora della vita che cambia, nel trascorrere dei cicli delle stagioni e della ritualità contadina, tra i segni misteriosi dell'astrazione organica e delle rassicuranti presenze che scendono dolcemente la china, in primo piano sulla diagonale dinamica'' (Enzo Carli, ''Giacomelli. La forma dentro''). Una fotografia della serie Scanno venne selezionata nel 1963 dal direttore del dipartimento di fotografia John Szarkowski per la collezione del Museo d'Arte Moderna di New York. Divenne così il primo fotografo italiano a essere incluso nella collezione fotografica permanente del MoMA.

        Document signed (concert program)

      1957 - (ARMSTRONG, Louis). (MIDDLETON, Velma). Document signed (concert program). No place: No publisher, no date [1957]. Quarto, original stiff glossy photographic wrappers, staple-bound as issued; pp. 16. $1650.Vintage concert program booklet, illustrated with numerous black-and-white photographs, signed in green ink on the front cover “Satchmo, Louis Armstrong,” further signed by singer Velma Middleton at her photograph.“Louis Armstrong and but three or four others are preeminent in the history of jazz. His importance in the development of this art form has gained greater, almost universal, recognition in the years since his death as scholars and musicians reevaluate his contributions as a soloist, composer, band leader and role model. The measure of his impact on the social history of 20th-century America also seems to be greater now as he gains recognition for his contributions to the Harlem Renaissance, for his actions as a thoughtful spokesman for black Americans, as a significant writer of autobiography, as an entertainer of stature and as a singer responsible for the development of major trends in American popular and jazz singing” (ANB). “Satchmo” signed the cover of this souvenir program booklet, obtained at a September 21, 1957 concert near Sioux City, Iowa. The cover depicts the trumpeter with his horn under his arm and its case in his hand; the booklet features numerous black-and-white images of Armstrong and his fellow musicians. Armstrong’s long-time singer Velma Middleton has signed the booklet at her photograph on page [14]. Concert seating ticket laid in. Previous owner’s ink annotation to front cover, affecting neither Armstrong’s image nor signature.Interior with slight marginal soiling to page [3]. Only light soiling to wrappers. A very nearly fine piece of jazz memorabilia, desirable signed by Middleton and Armstrong. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        [The] Desk Set (Original screenplay for the 1957 film, master copy with profuse annotations to dialogue)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1957. Final Shooting script for the 1957 film. Master copy, with numerous paste-ups and holograph pencil corrections throughout, with stock varying from onionskin to eye-rest green office paper. Corrections are mostly to dialogue, but include notations regarding direction, deletions, and a few notations in shorthand. The penultimate Hepburn and Tracy film, and a significant script in that dialogue--which sees many changes here--was always at the heart of the pair's nine on-screen collaborations. Also significant in that it was one of the first major motion pictures to address computing: when IBM introduced its state-of-the-art computer SSEC in 1948, it was called a computational machine because the term "computer" then referred to people involved in computation, and IBM founder Thomas Watson worried its use would feed public fears of machines replacing workers. Still sensitive to the issue in 1956, IBM assisted in the production of "The Desk Set," in which Tracy plays an engineer who brings havoc into an office with the introduction of EMMARAC (Electro-Magnetic Memory and Research Arithmetical Calculator). Goldenrod studio wrappers, noted as SHOOTING FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 684, dated January 7, 1957.

        Theory and History: An Interpretation of Social and Economic Evolution.

      New Haven: Yale University Press, 1957. First edition. Octavo, original blue cloth. Signed by Ludwig Von Mises on the half title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light toning to the spine. Theory and History discusses the theory of economics, the study of purposive human action, and with history, the record of the past actions of individuals. All actions are determined by ideas. Thoughts and ideas are "real things," Mises writes. "Although intangible and immaterial, they are factors in bringing about changes in the realm, of tangible and material things." Rather than rejecting the study of historical change as a "useless pastime," Mises considers it of the utmost practical importance. "History looks backward into the past, but the lesson it teaches concerns things to come."

        Otto Preminger, Jean Seberg, Mylene Demongest, and David Niven on the set of "Bonjour Tristesse" (1957)

      Culver City, CA: Columbia Pictures, 1957. Vintage oversize double weight photograph of Jean Seberg, Otto Preminger, David Niven, and the stand-ins for Seberg and Niven on the set of "Bonjour Tristesse" in the late summer of of 1957 in Côte d'Azur, France. Shot, struck, and mounted by the film's still photographer, Bob Willoughby. Willoughby's notations regarding same present on the verso, along with Willoughby's stamps, and a stamp for the Sygma Agency in Paris. Full provenance available. In a subtle homage to early cinema, Preminger took the uncommon approach of interspersing black-and-white sequences in what was primarily a color film, and pitted the seasoned stalwart David Niven against young and unconventional Jean Seberg, the latter fresh from her internationally acclaimed performance in Godard's "Breathless." After studying with Saul Bass at the Kann Institute of Art in Los Angeles, Willoughby began working as a photographer for magazines such as "Life," "Look," and "Harper's Bazaar" in the late 1940s. It was while on assignment covering Judy Garland in a "A Star is Born" that Willoughby's ability to capture his subjects' spontaneity, humor, and vulnerability, resulting in images that were far different from more traditional film stills, came to Hollywood's attention and earned him his first "Life" magazine cover. Willoughby spent the next 20-plus years working as a set photographer for every major studio, documenting some of most important films of the era and creating intimate portraits of some of Hollywood's greatest celebrities. Technically and stylistically innovative, Willoughby built the first remote radio-controlled cameras used on film sets, pioneered the use of the "silent blimp" for 35mm cameras, and created brackets to mount his cameras directly over the movie cameras to capture the same images. Willoughby moved his family to County Cork, Ireland in 1972, working on only a handful of films through the late 1970s and early 1980s, though he would continue to photograph, exhibit, and publish books for the remainder of his life. The stills in this collection were given by Willoughby to friends in Kilbrittain, Ireland just prior to his move to Vence, France in 1989, where he would remain until his death in 2009. Perhaps more than any other photographer, Willoughby is responsible for creating the the look of mid-century celebrity and moviemaking in the popular imagination, with his images printed in magazines literally every week of his career. But beyond being prolific, Willoughby's legacy rests with his ability capture the essence of the actors he photographed, as well as the films with which those photographs were associated. As Sydney Pollack said in his introduction to Willoughby's autobiography, "Sometimes a filmmaker gets a look at a photograph taken on his own set and sees the 'soul' of his film in one still photograph. It's rare, but it happens. It happened to me in 1969, the first time I looked at the work of Bob Willoughby during the filming of "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" Willoughby's photographs are in the permanent collections of ten museums, including The National Portrait Galleries in Washington, DC and London, the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Tate Modern. 11 x 13.75 inches. Near Fine.
