        Domaren. En tragisk komedi i sex scener.

      Stockholm; Bonniers, 1957. Originalupplaga. 19,5x13 cm. Ryggfoten lätt naggad. Svagt vikmärke vid främre omslagets övre hörn. Deltitelbladet något gulnat av ilagt tidningsurklipp. Fin inlaga. Dedikation: ''Till Kristina med en innerlig julhälsning från hennes tillgivne Vilhelm''. Mottagaren Kristina Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005) hade under 40-talet och möjligen även senare en kärleksaffär med Moberg, som döpte Kristina i Utvandrarserien efter henne. Kärleksaffären upptäcktes via en svit om 30 böcker som Moberg dedicerat till henne. I exemplaret av Utvandrarna (1949) skriver han: "Till Kristina, min älskade, som lånat sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i denna bok, med tacksamhet och kärlek från Författaren", ett intyg som upprepas så sent som 1969 i pocketupplagan av Utvandrarserien: " Den 29/3 1969. / Till Kristina -- hon som givit sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i utvandrarromanen och till Minnet / med innerlig tillgivenhet från Författaren", vilket visar att hon var fullt närvarande i hans tankevärld under hela denna tid och därmed mycket väl kan ha påverkat hans senare litterära produktion. Vad som ytterligare talar för detta är exemplaret av Vår ofödde son, en pjäs från 1945 som behandlar abort-problematik. Detta är den enda av böckerna som Kristina låtit binda in i ett påkostat rött skinnband, med en pärmficka längst bak där hon samlat tidningsartiklar om boken och dess författare. I Kristinas exemplar av den danska utgåvan av samma bok, utgiven 1947, finns en dedikation från översättaren: "Kaera Kristina! / Denne Bog, den til Dels handler om dig, sendes dig til Erindring -- ikke om Forfattaren, men om Oversatteren. / Din Carl Erik''

        On the Road

      The Viking Press, New York 1957 - A Very Good+ copy of the book; original black cloth with white lettering on the spine and front board; red topstain. Previous owner's name and date written on the endpapers, "Talbert 3/25/58 NY City." This book came from Tom Talbert's estate (1924 - 2005); Talbert was a well-known jazz pianist and composer who lived in NY and Los Angeles. Slight discoloration to the black cloth and spine a bit cocked. Internal contents are clean throughout with one single line underlined in blue pen, apparently by Talbert. Famous Bill English dust jacket a bit faded on the spine, worn along the extremities with various small chips and tears, but Very Good overall and completely unrepaired."It changed my life like it changed everyone else's," Bob Dylan said of "On The Road." Jack Kerouac's classic Roman A Clef, published in 1957, was the defining work of the beat generation. It follows the travels of Sal Paradise, a stand in for Kerouac himself, and is based on a serious of journeys Kerouac took from 1947 to 1950. The work was typed up on a continuous "scroll" of sheets that Kerouac had taped together. "On The Road" appears on both Modern Library's list of the 100 best novels of the century and on Time Magazine list of the 100 best English language novels from 1923-2005. "[I]ts publication is a historic occasion? the most beautifully executed, the clearest and the most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as 'beat,' and whose principal avatar he is." (Contemporary New York Times review). Very Good + in Very Good. dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Martin Luther King, Jr. Autograph Manuscript Page for His First Book, Stride Towards Freedom

      Montgomery, AL 1957 - Autograph Manuscript, a page from a late draft of Chapter 11 of his book, Stride Toward Freedom. Montgomery, n.d. [circa 1957]. The entire text, including corrections, is King's hand. 1p., 8 1/2 x 11 in. "Virtually every national or international union has clear policies of nondiscrimination . But in spite of this some unions, governed by the racist ethos, have contributed to the degraded economic status of the Negroes." Complete TranscriptDr. King has handwritten at the top edge in red pencil "(insert p. X1-15 in place of second first paragraph in X1-175)" and in the upper left corner "insert / #2""Certainly the labor movement has already made significant moves in this direction. Virtually every national or international union has clear policies of nondiscrimination and the national leaders of AFL-CIO have proclaimed sincerely the ultimate objective of eliminating racial bias not only from the American labor movement but also from American society as a whole. But in spite of this, it must be admitted that some unions, governed by the racist ethos, have contributed to the degraded economic status of the Negroes. Negros [sic] have."Historical BackgroundMartin Luther King, Jr.'s, first book, Stride Toward Freedom, is a first-hand account of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. A decision by the U.S. Supreme Court ended the boycott by ordering Alabama's busses desegregated on December 20, 1956. Just months after the boycott's end, King was asked to write a book chronicling the year-long struggle against Alabama's segregation laws. In the book, he discusses racial tensions in Alabama before and after the boycott, as well as his personal beliefs in nonviolent resistance. Stride Towards Freedom was published on September 17, 1958, to critical acclaim.This is a late draft of part of Chapter XI of Stride Toward Freedom. Only one edit was made between this manuscript and its publication on page 204 in the book ("it must be admitted that" here was replaced with "it must stand that"), in a chapter titled "Where Do We Go From Here?" He also used that chapter title as the title of his last book, published in 1967.The words immediately preceding what Dr. King handwrote in the manuscript here offered: "The organized labor movement, which has contributed so much to the economic security and well-being of millions, must concentrate its powerful forces on bringing economic emancipation to white and Negro by organizing them together in social equality," then our draft page, and then the complete sentence after what Dr. King has written here: "Negroes have been barred from membership in certain unions."ConditionFine. Expertly separated from the prior page. Conserved with silk backing on verso. Fine.

      Mexico City, 1957. Offset lithograph, image measuring 29 x 40, linen-backed, with the linen extending beyond the image for two inches in each dimension. Very good; a few small tears around the edges, fold marks. An unusually arresting image from Diaz, a little-known artist working in the Mexican film industry during the 50's and 60's.

        SOCIETE PARITYS Et Les TISSUS LEBOTYS. Collection Été 1957

      Societe Paritys, Paris 1957 - 104 pp, printed in red on stiff-stock paper. An exceedingly scarce and beautiful salesman sample catalogue issued by the Societe Paritys, noted supplier of fabrics and haberdashery for haute couture and ready to wear fashions in mid-century Paris. The 1950s were a decisive period for French fashion, and reflected the dynamic fashion designs of Pierre Balmain, Christian Dior, Jacques Griffe, Hubert de Givenchy, and Pierre Cardin. Founded in 1946, the Paritys had moved rapidly into supplying fabrics for not only French fashion houses, but also worked to meet the demands of the burgeoning ready-to-wear movement, represented by Jacques Fath, Robert Piguet, Paquin, Carven, and Jean Desses. The designs and fabrics for this summer catalogue display the heavy influence of Dior reflecting his ideals of full skirts & hourglass silhouettes, with percale, bustier-style bodices, hip padding, wasp-shaped dresses, as well as the flowing excess of fabrics in his designs. Dior considered the 1950s to be the Golden Age of Couture, and the drawings herein definitely express his influence on feminine fashion. This lavish display of mid-century fabrics include beautifully woven cotton & linen blends, silk blends, mohair, tweeds silk mohair blends, nylons, Lebotys rayons, satins, percales, laces and much more. Of particular interest are the designs and samples for wedding dresses. No copies located on OCLC, nor the major French institutions (as searched on KVK). Some general extremity wear to binder, with slightly bumped corners. Occasional dust soiling. Minor foxing. Overall VG, with cloth samples generally VG+ to Nr Fine, with the occasional crease to the odd sample or two. Publisher's color pictorial glazed boards, post binder; 3 brass posts, decorative screw tops. Red cloth joints [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Stapled. 17, [iii] (blank) pp. Facsimile of autograph manuscript. Copyright note of Editions Max Eschig, Paris, dated 1961, to foot of first page. Creased; rippled; frayed at upper edge. . Sabbataï Zevi is the fourth of Tansman's seven operas. The opera received a concert performance on March 3, 1961, at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, but has apparently never been staged. Max Eschig, Paris, published a piano-vocal score in 1966. The choral score accompanying the present autograph was most probably created for the 1961 production of the opera. The composer considered Sabbataï Zevi the best of his operas. Like many of Tansman's later works it is based on a distinctly Jewish subject. "... Tansman was a French composer and pianist of Polish birth... Disappointed with his reception in Poland, he moved to Paris, giving a début recital in February 1920. Soon after his arrival, he became friendly with Stravinsky and Ravel, both of whom encouraged and advised him... Acquainted with many leading musical figures in Paris during these years, Tansman was part of the circle of foreign musicians, known as the Ecole de Paris, that included Martin , Alexander Tcherepnin, Conrad Beck and Marcel Mihalovici. While his music retained many distinctively Polish features, such as Mazurka rhythms and Polish folk melodies, and while he wrote collections of Polonaises, Nocturnes, Impromptus, Waltzes and other Chopinesque miniatures, neo-classical traits appear in works [from about 1925]... Although he never completely abandoned a diatonic framework, critics of the 1920s and 30s described his harmony at times as Scriabinesque and atonal... Tansman was quick to achieve international success... He settled in Los Angeles in 1941 where he became acquainted with Schoenberg, renewed friendships with other European émigrés, including Milhaud and Stravinsky, and composed a number of film scores. He returned to Paris in 1946." Caroline Rae in Grove Music Online. "Tansman was as adept at writing in C major as he was at composing serially and he made use at different times of atonality and polytonality. The music of his opera Sabbataï Zevi (1953-9), which tells of the rise and fall of the 17th-century mystic, is post-tonal in style." Anne Giradot and Richard Langham Smith in the New Grove Dictionary of Opera.

Cloth over boards with a chipped paper label affixed to the upper board. Finger soiling and glue staining, moderate wear to the board tips, otherwise good. A unique salesman's sample book from an unnamed Spanish or possibly Argentinean design house illustrating women's hats available for sale, July 1957 - May 1958. The manuscript notations in Spanish list the basic hat and the variations in feathers, ribbons, veils, etc., with the price of these options, as well as the wholesale price in code, and the retail price in an unknown currency. At the top of many of the sample pages is the name of a notable French house of design , i.e., Legroux, Colombier, Rose Valois, Christian Dior, Lanvin, St. Cyr, ,et al. It is possible that these top couture houses were represented by this manufacturer, but it is more plausible that this is a sample book of inexpensive knockoffs, among original designs, to be sold in department stores and other retail settings

Sabbataï Zevi is the fourth of Tansman's seven operas. The opera received a concert performance on March 3, 1961, at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, but has apparently never been staged. Max Eschig, Paris, published a piano-vocal score in 1966. The choral score accompanying the present autograph was most probably created for the 1961 production of the opera. The composer considered Sabbataï Zevi the best of his operas. Like many of Tansman's later works it is based on a distinctly Jewish subject. "... Tansman was a French composer and pianist of Polish birth... Disappointed with his reception in Poland, he moved to Paris, giving a début recital in February 1920. Soon after his arrival, he became friendly with Stravinsky and Ravel, both of whom encouraged and advised him... Acquainted with many leading musical figures in Paris during these years, Tansman was part of the circle of foreign musicians, known as the Ecole de Paris, that included Martin , Alexander Tcherepnin, Conrad Beck and Marcel Mihalovici. While his music retained many distinctively Polish features, such as Mazurka rhythms and Polish folk melodies, and while he wrote collections of Polonaises, Nocturnes, Impromptus, Waltzes and other Chopinesque miniatures, neo-classical traits appear in works [from about 1925]... Although he never completely abandoned a diatonic framework, critics of the 1920s and 30s described his harmony at times as Scriabinesque and atonal... Tansman was quick to achieve international success... He settled in Los Angeles in 1941 where he became acquainted with Schoenberg, renewed friendships with other European émigrés, including Milhaud and Stravinsky, and composed a number of film scores. He returned to Paris in 1946." Caroline Rae in Grove Music Online. "Tansman was as adept at writing in C major as he was at composing serially and he made use at different times of atonality and polytonality. The music of his opera Sabbataï Zevi (1953-9), which tells of the rise and fall of the 17th-century mystic, is post-tonal in style." Anne Giradot and Richard Langham Smith in the New Grove Dictionary of Opera.

        The Picture Story of a Memorable Visit

      [N.p., Washington DC?]: , 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 The boards somewhat rubbed and soiled, corners bumped, some chipping at edges, contents clean and sound. 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.

It is historically a very important text He was brilliant for his era and the working conditions he had .and there is NO question he was a pioneer and thoroughly inspired generations of surgeons to follow him. His name would be known by every plastic surgeon on the planet .and his principles SHOULD be know and practised by every plastic surgeon on the planet. He was however a pioneer and achieved a lot. He represents one of the milestones in plastic surgery history. His principles still are relevant today and are still spoken of. They are naturally applied in a different manner given the different knowledge and technology we have. None of his techniques would be directly relevant today !!!! principles and his spirit. Plastic surgeons themselves have a tendency to reflect on the history of their own specialty. DATE PUBLISHED: 1957 EDITION: FIRST ED 652+317 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Moderne Zeiten" originales Aquarell auf Bütten-Papier ca. 48x31cm; unten rechts monogrammiert und datiert "(19)49"

      - Hermann Schütte, ein zu unrecht Vergessener. Er war Maler, Graphiker und Schriftsteller. Ein junger Wilder, Dadaist, Phantastischer Realist, Surrealist. Mit vielen Großen seiner Zeit bekannt, mit Kurt Schwitters und Heinrich Vogeler befreundet. Zeitlebens ein Schaffender - creo ergo sum! Er rang mit sich und der Kunst, suchte immer neue Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten und -formen. Ein experimentierfreudiger und unabhängiger Geist, nicht trotz, sondern wegen seiner beruflichen Tätigkeit. Der erfolgreiche - wie man heute sagen würde - mittelständische Unternehmer - scherte sich nicht um Zeitgeist und mainstream. Er mußte weder sich, noch seine Kunst vermarkten. Er suchte und strebte nach Kunst, nicht nach Anerkennung. Seine Eigenwilligkeit scheint ihm der öffentliche, staatliche Kunstzirkus und Museumsbetrieb nicht vergessen zu haben und straft ihn deshalb mit weitgehender Mißachtung. Hermann Schütte war eben frei nach Karl Kraus unbequem und Sand im Getriebe der Welt. Ich möchte Hermann Schütte die Anerkennung zollen, die ihm zukommt und deshalb freue ich mich, einige seiner Arbeiten anbieten zu können. Möge aus dem fast Vergessenen wieder ein guter Bekannter werden. Klassische Moderne Kunst auf diesem Preisniveau ist nicht nur eine Kaufempfehlung, sondern ein echtes Muß! Zur genaueren Orientierung über Schüttes Leben und Schaffen mögen ein Zeitungsartikel anläßlich seiner Ausstellung in der Hamburger Kunsthalle 1957 und die Kopie eines Ausstellungs-Faltblattes dienen.
