        Etchings and Dry Points

      London: P. & D. Colnaghi, 1957 Catalogue raisonné by Harold J. L. Wright. Illustrated with original dry point "Manolita" signed Flint as a frontispiece. Limited edition of 135 numbered copies. Signed by Flint on the limitation page. Publisher's navy cloth, lettered in gilt, top edge gilt; blue cloth slipcase. Near fine, with a hint of light toning to the spine, else fine; in a fine slipcase. A lovely copy. Etchings and Dry Points is a catalogue raisoneé of the Scottish artist William Russell Flint's dry points and etchings from 1914-1954. A definitive reference text for these prints, Etchings and Dry Points chronicles the different proof and published states of Flint's dry points and etchings and includes high quality reproductions to illustrate the issue points. Flint, who is recognized for his work in dry point, reflects on his affinity for the medium in the preface: "Printing a copper plate is a gently stimulating and only partly repetitive occupation. To me it was always a change of work almost as good as a holiday." In addition to Wright's bibliographic text, Etchings and Dry Points contains Flints' notes on his inspirations for and memories of creating the discussed prints. Etching and dry point are intaglio printmaking processes that involves incising lines into the surface of the plate to create grooves to hold ink and print lines when passed through a hand press, but they are created through such different processes that their end results look strikingly different. Specifically, etching is a process in which an artist uses an etching needle to draw an image on a plate through a coat of resin and then dipping the plate into an acid bath, while dry point involves drawing directly onto the plate with a needle, creating a burr that gives the lines a fuzzy look in the final print.. Illus. by Flint, William Russell. Limited. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Interpersonal Diagnosis of Personality [Inscribed Association Copy]

      NY: The Ronald Press. (1957). Leary's first regularly published book, written while he was Director of Psychology Research at the Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Oakland, California. The book was voted the best book on psychotherapy in 1957 by the American Psychological Association, and was immediately recognized as a landmark: among other things, Leary's book argued that "individual character functions as an inextricable part of a larger social network," an insight that was later crucial in his experiments with the use of psychedelic drugs in psychotherapy and psychological treatment, and also with his non-academic experiments with such drugs. The accolades Leary received after the publication of this book led directly to his being offered a teaching position at Harvard, where he taught from 1959-1963. Leary left academia to pursue an iconoclastic path as an avatar of the counterculture in the 1960s, and as a prominent advocate of the use of psychedelic drugs for insight. This copy is inscribed by Leary to his longtime research assistant, and later lover, Helen Lane. Lane and Leary met in 1947 when she was secretary of the Berkeley chapter of the American Veterans Committee, in which Leary was active. She later moved to the Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Oakland, where she was a research assistant and assisted on the paper written by two other researchers that was a precursor to Leary's book, and eventually became Leary's personal assistant. After Leary's second wife left him, he and Lane began a relationship and the two went to Mexico together. After Leary left California and went to Europe with his two children, she continued to manage his affairs for a time in his absence. A near fine copy in a very good dust jacket with modest edge wear and a few chips at the corners. Seldom found in jacket at all, and equally seldom found signed; this is an excellent association copy between Leary and one of the people closest to him for a number of years at the time he was working on this book and after it was first published. First Edition. Hardcover.

        The Picture Story of a Memorable Visit

      N.p. ? Washington: , 1957. Folio (510 × 358 mm). Spiral bound within original green cloth-backed printed buff boards. Profusely illustrated from black and white photographs, text and captions in Arabic and English, title page and section titles - printed on coloured washi paper - in Arabic alone A little rubbed and soiuled on the boards with some chipping, mild finger-soiling to a few leaves, but overall very good. First and only edition of this commemorative pictorial souvenir of King Sa'ud ibn 'Abd al-'Aziz Al Sa'ud's official visit to America. Extremely uncommon, just ten locations on OCLC, all in the United States. "The following pages present a photographic portrayal of the visit to the United States of America by His Majesty, King Sa'ud ibn 'Abd al-'Aziz Al Sa'ud at the invitation of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The visit was prompted by the earnest desire of the two leaders, as men of peace and honor, to agree upon programs and policies which would foster harmony among nations, and serve the well-being of peoples … His Majesty and his party were in the United States only eleven days. But, these were busy, fruitful days, from the morning of January 29, 1957, when a squadron of United States Air Force jet aircraft flew out to sea to meet the liner Constitution, until the morning of February 9, when the President's personal airplane soared away from Washington National Airport … The camera has recorded the highlights of the memorable visit: the full military honors accorded to King Sa'ud upon his arrival in New York, the unprecedented personal welcome by the President in Washington, the meetings at the White House, the conferences with Secretary Dulles and other officials, the discussions with diplomats and statesmen of the Arab countries, the expressions of hospitality - these and other events …" The other officials and dignitaries referred to included Richard Nixon as Vice President, Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles, Charles E. Wilson, Secretary of Defense, Dag Hammarskjold, Secretary General of the United Nations, Krishna Menon, India's permanent representative at the UN, Abdul Khalek Hassuma, Secretary General of the Arab League, Crown Prince Abd-al-llah of Iraq, and the UN General Assembly, and Dr. Ahmad Husain, the Egyptian ambassador. Sa'ud's trip included visits to the Naval Academy at Annapolis, Arlington Military Cemetery, the Washington Islamic Center, and a banquet hosted by Fred A. Davies, chairman of Aramco. The visit was a key element in America's political manoeuvring following the Suez Crisis, designed in large part to prevent Soviet Russia from replacing French and British influence in the region. Sa'ud was persuaded to accept the Eisenhower Doctrine, and $250,000,000 towards his defence budget, and in so doing found himself at odds with the rise of Arab nationalism, and a target for Nasserist calls from Egypt for the removal of the Arab monarchies. Following worsening conflict with his brother Faisal over his indebtedness, and his court's refusal to keep pace with the modernisation of other Arab nations, Sa'ud was forced to abdicate in 1964, going into exile in Geneva. Publication is usually attributed to the US government, but the awkwardness of the English, and the care in the presentation of the Arabic captioning and titles, suggest that it may have been produced in Saudi Arabia with American backing, positive spin at home for a less than triumphant diplomatic foray.

      [N.p., likely Los Angeles. 1957-1959].. [48],[2],48,10pp. largely rectos only. Contemporary glazed cloth boards, gilt. Minor wear at spine ends and corners, some rubbing. Very good. The original manuscript with numerous added items, presented by author James Warner Bellah to his friend, Charles Benton. James Warner Bellah was a veteran of both World War I and World War II, and a popular western author during the 1930s through the 1950s. He wrote numerous books and stories centering on cavalry and Indians, largely pulp fiction published in periodicals and paperbacks, and occasionally serialized in more respectable outlets such as the SATURDAY EVENING POST. Several of Bellah's stories were adapted to film, including three by director John Ford: FORT APACHE, SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON, and RIO GRANDE. Bellah also co- wrote the screenplays for THE SEA CHASE and THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, and wrote for television throughout the 1950s and '60s. The present work is comprised of Bellah's handwritten manuscript (with numerous holographic corrections, emandations, and paste-overs), the typescript (with a few holographic corrections), and the published version of the short story (extracted from the magazine) bound together in that order. The recipient, Charles Benton presumably bound the manuscript, typescript, and magazine text together at a later date. The story is titled "Thirty Nine Days to Glory" and concerns the "real story of Custer's Last Fight" according to the subtitle added to the final printed version, which appeared in the September 1959 issue of HOLIDAY magazine. Bellah presented each item to Benton separately, each time including a presentation inscription; the inscription on the manuscript is dated Aug. 24, 1957, the others undated. Bellah included a signed note (also bound in) when he transmitted the manuscript to Benton that carries some importance for Bellah scholars, as he writes: "This is only one of two original manuscripts of mine that I have not burned as a matter of routine after they were typed. The other is that of 'The Valiant Virginians' which was requested by and is now on permanent exhibit at the Columbia University Library in New York. Who knows - you may ultimately have a fortune." An excellent literary item for the western collector, and the only obtainable Bellah manuscript in the world.

        Four photo albums of events in India, owned by Thomas W. Simons, American Counsul General in Madras

      [Circa 1957-1961]. Four photo albums of events in India that contain more than 100 professionally taken images, owned by Thomas W. Simons, American Counsul General in Madras. Three oblong octavos; one oblong quarto. All appear to be presentations to Simons, who appears to be the featured guest or speaker. These were presented by Caltex Oil Company at the Inauguration of the Caltex Oil Refinery at Visakhapatnam (1957); the Lions Club of Kottayam; at Simons' Inaugural Address of the General Council at Anmnamalai University (1961); and the fourth unidentified.Most seem to be professional photos and are artistically mounted. 107 pictures total (including seven loose), perhaps five or six lacking, whether these are the loose ones or not is unclear. Some are captioned. Images include Simons speaking at banquets with local dignitaries, many sari-clad dancing girls, pictures of Simons in the streets, etc.Curiously we could find relatively little about Simons, although his son Thomas W. Simons, Jr. seems to have made a name for himself as ambassador to Pakistan. .

She also wrote six romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but she is best known for the 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections she wrote under her own name, most of which revolve around the investigations of such characters as Hercule Poirot, Miss Jane Marple, Mr Satterthwaite, and Tommy and Tuppence. She also wrote the world's longest-running play, The Mousetrap.Born into a wealthy upper-middle-class family in Torquay, Devon, Christie served in a hospital during the First World War, before marrying and starting a family in London. She was initially unsuccessful at getting her work published; but in 1920 The Bodley Head press published her novel The Mysterious Affair at Styles, featuring the character of Poirot. This launched her literary career.The Guinness Book of World Records lists Christie as the best-selling novelist of all time. Her novels have sold roughly 2 billion copies, and her estate claims that her works come third in the rankings of the world's most-widely published books,[2] behind Shakespeare's works and the Bible. According to Index Translationum, Christie is the most-translated individual author Ð having been translated into at least 103 languages.

        Flor de S. Miguel. Folge von 30 (davon 12 zweifarb.) Orig.-Holzschnitten. Mit einer Einführung von Jorge Amado: "A Bahia de Hansen" mit 2 weiteren Holzschnitten. Ferner mit dem Bogen der deutschen Übersetzung des Textes und drei Texten von Hansen, mit 8 weiteren Holzschnitten. Insges. 40 Holzschnitte.

      1957 bzw. 1960.. 29 x 40 cm. (8 S.), 34 Bl., lose in handgearbeiteter Mappe mit geblümtem Seidenüberzug u. 2 (etw. knittrigen) Schließbändern. Das empfindliche Papier vereinzelt geringfüg. stfl.; insges. sehr gutes Exemplar dieser seltenen Folge. Kothe S. 20 - 21, 25 - 28 u. 46.. * Eins von nur 20 (ges. 50) numer. Exemplaren, die durch die Wiss. Buchgesellschaft, Darmstadt, ausgegeben wurde. Nur diesen 20 Exemplaren liegt das oben genannte, numerierte Doppelblatt mit den 8 zusätzlichen Holzschnitten bei. Im Colophon signiert, außerdem die 30 großformatigen Holzschnitte einzeln signiert. - Diese "Luxusausgabe" (Kothe) ist die zweite Auflage des insgesamt in drei - allerdings sehr unterschiedlichen - Versionen erschienenen Werkes. Im Gegensatz zur 1. und 3. Auflage enthält diese teils andere Holzschnitte, ist als einzige in nur 50 Exemplaren erschienen (1. u. 3. Auflage: jeweils 500 Exemplare, 3. Auflage nicht von den Originalstöcken gedruckt), die Ausgabe auf dem besten Papier (Mataborrao) und stellt als einzige die Blätter in der von Hansen-Bahia geplanten Form dar: wie Hansen in 'Hansen-Bahia erzählt von Brasilien' darstellt, wurde die Erstausgabe "viel zu klein im Format", da sein Druckergehilfe Candido das Papier hat viel zu knapp beschneiden lassen, so "daß nur ein ganz kleines Blatt übrig blieb und die farbigen großen Holzschnitte jetzt alle scharf auf den Rand und teils noch darüber hinausgehen.". Vorliegende Ausgabe enthält also die Farbschnitte auf breitrandigem Papier und ganz ausgedruckt, während die Schnitte in den anderen Ausgaben an Ober- und Unterkante teilweise abgeschnitten sind. Alle Graphiken von Hansen-Bahia auf der Handpresse abgezogen. - Hansen-Bahias eindrucksvolle Folge über die Matrosenkneipe und Hafenbordell in Bahia. "Meine Liebe für S. Miguel ist nicht kritisch. Aber es ist eine reine Liebe, ein Verliebtsein, das nichts mit Hurerei zu tun hat, eine große Liebe, die die ganze Straßenecke umarmt: die Männer mit den Strohhüten, die Matrosen und die Huren, die Hurengasse mit den barocken Kirchen darüber." (Aus einem der beiliegenden Texte Hansens).
