        [幹部檔案:吴强]. [Gan bu dang an: Wu Qiang]. [Dossier of A Cadre: Wu Qiang].

      [Beijing]. No publication details. (circa1957). Dossier, largely handwritten, compiled on Wu Qiang an employee of the Beijing No. 5 Construction Engineering Company in the early 1950s. Bound between two cloth covered boards, Chinese title in red on upper cover, green shoelace tie. The Chinese characters on the upper cover translate from top to bottom as "Cadre Dossier, Name, Beijing No.5 Construction Engineering Company".This dossier, 198 leaves in total, is a collection of thirty-five handwritten documents, four forms, a few reports by the Beijing No. 5 Construction Engineering Company together with other organisations who are interested in his case, and eight witness statements. The dossier is unpaginated with a few leaves out of order. Almost all of the documents are handwritten and the forms filled in by hand with the exception of a final printed report giving the conclusion of Wu Qiang's colleagues. The leaves vary in size and many are folded, some are torn at the outer margin but this has not affected the text. Covers measure 27.5 x 21cm, some leaves vary but most are similar in size to the covers. A comprehensive and scarce dossier in very good condition. This revealing dossier compiled in the early 1950s about 吴强 [Wu Qiang], a Beijing construction company employee. The dossier gives a great deal of detail about Wu Qiang's experiences prior to 1949 as well as touching on those of some of his family members. He is open and honest in his self-criticism, confessing to having been corrupt, a bigamist, to having acted in a pompous manner while working in his former jobs as a conductor and station master and in particular to treating railway travellers in Hanoi, where he worked for three years badly. He gives details of how corruption worked in his former railway posts and expresses how grateful he is that his current company is offering him, and others like him, who also have an anti-revolutionary background, a second chance. He states that he now has a thorough understanding of how misleading the Nationalist Party dogma was and how wrong he was to have believed it and acted in the ways he did in the past. He goes so far as to admit to having believed "since I was in my teens that the Communist Party commits murder and arson..."The majority of the documents in this dossier were written by Wu Qiang himself and are mostly confessions and statements. It is interesting to note that Wu Qiang joined Beijing No.5 Construction Engineering Company in September 1950 and the investigation recorded in this dossier dates from 1951 through to 1956. Although the conclusion of his investigators is dated 1956 Wu Qiang has added an annotation denying a statement made in the conclusion added in 1957. These documents show that even though Wu Qiang passed the initial background check when he first joined the government-run company the investigation into his past dragged on until 1956. This must have been a gruelling period for Wu Qiang as, again and again, he addressed the questions his investigators put to him. His background was clearly held against him as there is evidence in these documents that he was not treated by them as fairly as one of his colleagues was.Behind the endless investigation sessions and Wu's repeated confessions in this dossier, it is clear that there were in fact three principal aspects of Wu's life that the investigators were interested in. These three questions can be found on the undated single page summary of Wu's biography written by the investigators. The investigators wanted the answers to the following three questions:"Firstly,[we] want to know about the political background, as well as information about the social relationships, of Wu's aunt (Wu's mother's sister) 郁碧岑 [Yu Bicen] in the period prior to 1949. Secondly, [we] want to know the reason why Wu destroyed his Nationalist Party membership card in 1948 on his return to Peking. Why would he do this if he had believed that China was under the control of the Nationalist Party and would always continue to be so? Finally, according to Wu, the reason he joined the Nationalist Party was because he wanted to use his membership to climb the ladder at work quickly. However, in the five years following his joining the Nationalist's he did not attend many party activities and yet he still got promoted to important roles at the Department of Railway. What role did the Nationalist Party play in the promotions he received?"These three queries were promptly addressed by Wu in a document he wrote on May 27th 1952. In this document, titled "Confession to Social Relationships", Wu explains in detail that his aunt Yu Bicen was a housewife but at the time of the confession was a group chief of 上海常熟區婦聯小組長及合作社監事 [the Shanghai Changshu District Women's Association and a Cooperative supervisor]. Yu has always been wealthy and had many properties in Shanghai and other places. He stated that she knew the head of the Education Department 夏衍 [Xia Yan] and the manager of a film company. She has no political background. Her closest friend is an editor of Xinmin News called 蒋文杰 [Jiang Wenjie] who lives with her at her house. Throughout Wu's life his aunt has helped him, finding him a good school, job opportunities and giving him financial support.Wu's response to the question as to why he destroyed the party membership in 1948 is that he did this because he thought the current political atmosphere was very tight and he did not want to get into any trouble. As to the question relating to the party activities and his participation in them, he confesses that he had only paid the membership fees three or four times and had no real participation in party activities. The party members at his branch met once a week to read the non-confidential reports about the "illegal" Communist activities.The investigator's also repeatedly discussed several other issues relating to Wu: his change of birth place from Nancheng County in Jiangxi Province to Wuxian County in Jiangsu Province; his work experience when he worked for the Department of Railway; the one month of training he had at the 洛阳军分校 [military branch school of Luoyang]; his joining of the Nationalist Party in 1943; the reason he returned from Kunming to Peking in 1948.One of the witness statements focuses on Wu Qiang's cousin, 郁陈碧琴 [Yu Chen Biqin], who attempted to escape to United States via Hong Kong but failed.A two-page printed report titled "Conclusion of Comrade Wu Qiang's Historical Issues" is the last item in the folder. Written on October 25th 1956 and stamped by the personnel department of Beijing No.5 Construction Engineering Company, it states the issues investigated are as follows:"According to himself, he was the conductor and station master at the 平汉铁路局 [Ping Han Railway Branch]; he had trained at 洛阳军分校铁道训练班 [railway training class, military branch school of Luoyang] and was given a uniform; he was working at the Vietnam Haiphong Branch, Shanghai Yong Da Transportation Company during 1939 to 1940; he started up a business company in Kunming later on; he become the 滇越铁路管理处主任 [head of the Dian-Yue Railway Administration Division] in 1943; he was influenced by the section chief 王哲平 [Wang Zheping] to join the Nationalist Party in the same year." It concludes that Wu Qiang has explained the issues of his past and no other issues were found. A handwritten note added by Wu Qiang in April 1957, states that he does not agree that a military uniform was ever given to him.The "Be Loyal and Honest" registration form and statement in this dossier, and probably this whole investigation of Wu Qiang, are closely related to the "Be Loyal and Honest Movement" initiated in 1950. At this time the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China issued a directive to encourage people to disclose their private details including personal, social, political history and suggestions to the Communist Party. Unfortunately, people's honesty was turned into "anti-revolution evidence", and later was used again and again in the campaigns such as the Three-antis, the Five-antis Campaign and the Cultural Revolution to the great detriment of the individuals who had complied.

Oktober 1911 in Seis am Schlern, Südtirol) war ein deutscher Theologe, Gymnasiallehrer und Philosoph. Entgegen dem zu seiner Zeit stark verbreiteten Naturalismus entwickelte Dilthey ein lebensphilosophisches Fundament, welches das menschliche Leben und die Formen seines Ausdrucks nicht mehr nur nach Naturgesetzlichkeiten erklärte, sondern vielmehr die Eigengesetzlichkeit des menschlichen Geisteslebens zu verstehen suchte. Dilthey baute diesen Ansatz wissenschaftstheoretisch aus und formulierte in Abgrenzung zu den Naturwissenschaften eine Theorie der Geisteswissenschaften, als deren Begründer er gilt. Als deren Methode entwickelte er die Hermeneutik und die verstehende Psychologie in wesentlicher Weise weiter. Zur empirischen Anwendung brachte Dilthey seine Methoden in der Weltanschauungslehre, einem Deutungsschema für die seiner Meinung nach gescheiterten Systeme der Metaphysik. In ihr ve

        IL DOTTOR ZIVAGO. Traduzione dal russo di Pietro Zveteremich.

      in-16 gr., cartonato edit., sovracoperta (lieviss. mancanze margin.), pp. 710,(2). Celeberrima "prima edizione", nella prima tiratura del 15 novembre. "Il romanzo, accolto in manoscritto dai dirigenti letterari sovietici con obiezioni di fondo, via via più gravi - (si conclusero in una lettera della redazione della rivista 'Novyj Mir' che rifiutava la pubblicazione dell'opera) - pervenne all'editore Feltrinelli che lo presentò al pubblico direttamente in traduzione italiana. L'avvenimento uscì, in breve, dall'ambito del dibattito culturale e si trasformò in una questione prevalentemente politica, con aspetti di esasperazione polemica, estranei al giudizio sul valore artistico dell'opera". Così "Diz. Universale della Letteratura Contemporanea",III, p. 985. Esemplare molto ben conservato.

        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. A little rubbed and soiled on the boards with some chipping, mild finger-soiling to a few leaves, but overall very good. 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. 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.

His trademark attire was a boater hat, which he always wore on stage with a tuxedo. In 1958, he starred with Leslie Caron and Louis Jourdan in Gigi and in the early 1960s, he made eight films, including Can-Can in 1960 and Fanny the following year.  The success of Gigi prompted Hollywood to give him an Academy Honorary Award that year for achievements in entertainment. <br style="">

        The Town

      New York, NY: Rancom House, 1957. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. Signed by Author(s). Number 438 of 450 inscribed, limited first edition copies; 371 pages; signed by William Faulkner. Professionally rebound in handsome Morocco with banded, gilt embossed spine, all edges gilt, marbled end papers, a bit of rubbing at extremities, especially along bottom edges of boards, internally clean and bright with sound binding. The Town is the second novel of the "Snopes" trilogy, following The Hamlet (1940) and completed by The Mansion (1959). Each chapter is narrated from the point of view of one of three characters: Chick Mallison, Gavin Stevens, or V.K. Ratliff. Set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County, based on Lafayette County, Mississippi, where Faulkner spent most of his life. William Faulkner is one of the most celebrated writers in American literature specifically known for writing southern fiction. Though his work was published as early as 1919, and largely during the 1920s and 1930s, Faulkner was relatively unknown until receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature, for which he became the only Mississippi-born Nobel laureate. Two of his works, A Fable (1954) and his last novel The Reivers (1962), won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Well packaged. Ships insured.

        Ihya' Ulum al-Din [ The Revival of the Religious Sciences, Arabic edition. Complete set in 4 volumes ].

      Dar Ihya' al-Kutub al-Arabiyya, (1957). 4 vols. Half leather hardcovers. Text in Arabic. This is perhaps the best edition; it was published 'Isa al-Babi al-Halabi wa Awladahu and reprinted by Dar Ihya' al-Kutub al-'Arabiyya with an introduction by Dr. Badawi Tabana (kairo) in 1957; this was then known as the Tabana edition. (ex-libris stamp on endpapers, paper sl. browned) Although very good set, see picture. 'The Revival of the Religious Sciences is widely regarded as the greatest work of Muslim spirituality, and is perhaps the most read work in the Muslim world, after the Qur'an. - The Revival of the Religious Sciences is divided into four parts, each containing ten chapters. Part one deals with knowledge and the requirements of faith - ritual purity, prayer, charity, fasting, pilgrimage, recitation of the Qur'an, and so forth; part two concentrates on people and society - the manners related to eating, marriage, earning a living, and friendship; parts three and four are dedicated to the inner life of the soul and discuss first the vices that people must overcome in themselves and then the virtues that they must strive to achieve.'.

        A Winter's Love

      Philadelphia and New York: J.B. Lippincott. (1957). First. First edition. Small remnant of a former owner's label on the front pastedown, else fine in near very good dustwrapper with the usual sunning to the spine-lettering, and some modest chipping, mostly at the crown. In our experience one of the author's scarcest titles. A novel for adults about a troubled marriage and an old friend who interjects himself into the middle of it, written before L'Engle became famous for her children's fantasies. .

        Chronica Franciscana de las Provincias del Peru

      Academy of American Franciscan History, Washington DC & Madrid 1957 - Large 8vo, xciii, 1195 pp. with facsimiles and photos in b/w. First published in 1651 this is the second edition, "with Notes and Introduction by Lino G. Canedo, O.F.M." and the first in the series Franciscan Historical Classics. Cordova Salinas was a native of Lima, from a distinguished family. His history comprehends all of the South American continent except Brazil, from Panama south. Because of the early and important role in South America of his order, which looked upon the native peoples in a benign manner, always eager to learn their languages and customs the better to evangelize them, and because of his completely free access to all the Franciscan archives of this huge province, Salina Cordova's history is of great importance. Virtually unobtainable for 300 years, this superb reprinting, with excellent notes and introduction, is particularly valuable. This is copy #94 of 100 numbered copies on special paper from a Limited Edition of 750 total. Beautifully bound in full Mexican tree calf with raised bands and red morocco spine labels with gilt rules and titles. Fine copy -- as new. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Remarks of Senator John F. Kennedy (Dem. Mass.), Chairman, Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on UN Affairs

      Washington, D.C., 1957. A few pale stains, some light soiling. Mechanically reproduced typescript. 15 pages on 8 leaves, 4to, letterhead of the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. Stapled. Kennedy opens his remarks to the President: "The most powerful single force in the world today is neither Communism nor capitalism, neither the H-Bomb nor the guided missile -- it is man's eternal desire to be free and independent. The great enemy of that tremendous force of freedom is called, for want of a more precise term, imperialism -- and today that means Soviet imperialism and, whether we like it or not, and though they are not to be equaled, Western imperialism." From this he makes his argument that the U.S. support Algeria's effort to gain independence from France.
