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.

        MILLINERY SAMPLE BOOK

      Folio, 343 manuscript pages, all but a few illustrated with a mounted original b&w silver photograph, each approximately 2 3/4 x 4 inches or the reverse. 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

        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.

Reinforced Slipcase significant wear has clear packing tape on all edges, , creased, worn extremities. Additional shipping will be required. 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.

        LES MAGICIENNES (DOUBLE DECEPTION) - REVIEW COPY, INSCRIBED TO ALEXANDRE VIALATTE

      Paris: Denoël, 1957. First French Edition. First Printing. Near Fine in illustrated wrappers, a lovely copy of the French crime fiction duo's sixth book. Light rubbing along the hinges, a few glue ridges along the spine panel, and a some light browning to the text edges. This is a French Review Copy, with the requisite "PRESSE" punch at the upper left corner of the rear panel. A superb association copy inscribed to author Alexandre Vialatte on the front free endpaper: "à Alexandre Vialatte - en toute sympathie - Boileau-Narcejac." No date present, though the copy was likely signed after Boileau's death in 1989. Until Narcejac's death in 1998, he would sign books as "Boileau-Narcejac," in honor of his long-time friend and co-author. Basis for the 1960 suspense film "Double Deception," directed by Serge Friedman and starring Jacques Riberolles, and twins Alice and Ellen Kessler. Scarce in any condition, let alone inscribed, with a nice association between the two French authors.
