        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. .

      London: Collins for the Crime Club, 1957. Sm. 8vo, 256pp. Half scarlet crushed morocco, backstrip gilt, original orange backstrip bound in. Very attractive modern binding. First edition of this famous classic featuring Miss Marple. The novel was adapted into a highly successful feature film, titled ?Murder, She Said?released in 1961 and starring Margaret Rutherford and James Robertson Justice. As Wikipedia notes: Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, DBE (nŽe Miller; 15 September 1890 ? 12 January 1976) was an English crime novelist, short story writer, and playwright. 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.

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.

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."

Limited to an edition of 115 printed on vélin de Rives. This book contains seven poems by French poet Robert Desnos. Desnos was part of the surrealist movement in the 1920s, but later denounced surrealism's ties to communism. He produced poetry even after his capture and imprisonment by the Gestapo in 1944 for being a member of the French Resistance. He died in 1945 from typhoid contracted during his time in the concentration camps. This book is illustrated by four original color prints and signed on the colophon by French artist André Masson. Influential in the surrealist movement, Masson produced paintings, book illustrations, and stage settings from the 1920s until his death in 1987. He was interested in "the destiny of mankind" and his work often reflected the violent or erotic images he saw during his experiences in World War I and the Spanish Civil War. He was awarded France's Grand Prix National des Arts in 1955. Newspaper article announcing Masson's death, photocopy of book entry for Masson, and Zabriskie Gallery schedule of exhibitions including one of work by Masson laid-in.
