        A collection of 24 finely executed watercolours of Indonesian (former Dutch Indies) Coconut Palms together with their pests, insects as well as mammals.

      Each watercolour measures 365 x 280 mm. and is signed by the artist. Early twentieth century. An interesting and unique collection of highly finished watercolours by Indonesian artists of which Ojong Surjadi is best known. The plates were made for the following book: Buku-gambar berwarna tentang hama-hama kelapa. Djakarta, Noordhoff-Kolff, 1957. Surjadi illustrated several important works on Indonesian plants. Such as the 'Indisch Tuinboek' and 'Indische Tuinbloemen', edited by M.L.A. Bruggeman. The first title was also translated into English. We assume that the other artists are of the same school, documenting Indonesian flora under direction of Dutch botanists. Bruggeman was assistant curator of the famous Bogor (then Buitenzorg) Botanical Garden. Two collections of watercolours by Surjadi were sold at auction in recent years both by Sotheby's one 8 May 2002 lot 34 and the other 14 November 2002 lot 10. The last lot several other artists contributed. Probably due to second world war and the Indonesian war of indepence the publication was considerably delayed. The published book on coconut pest control has just the plates we offer. //All plates apart from 2 have a typed label with Latin nomenclature. 17 plates are signed by Sudirdja, 1 by Sudjana and Sudirdja jointly, 1 by Ojong Surjadi, 3 by M. Kurdi, 1 by Sudjana and Mob. Kurdi jointly, and 1 by Sudirdja and O. Surjadi jointly. The plates are numbered 1 to 24 and were most likely made to illustrate a work on coconut palms and their pests./Below a list of the plates giving the artist and the Latin nomenclature, the English explanation has been added./Plate 1 Sudirdja - Sexava nubile STAL (Locust); Plate 2 Sudirdja - Aleurodicus destructor MASK (Coconut whitefly); Plate 3 Sudirdja - Trichoregma spp (Coconut Aphid); Plate 4 Sudirdja - Aspidiotus destructor rigidus REYNE (Hemiptera: Diaspididae); Plate 5 Sudirdja - Pseudococcus sp (Mealy bugs); Plate 6 Sudirdja - Batrachedra sp (Coconut moth); Plate 7 Sudirdja - Tirathaba rufivena WLK (Coconut spike moth); Plate 8 Sudjana/ Sudirdja - Parasa lepida CR (Nettle caterpillar); Plate 9 Sudirdja - Darna catenatus SN (Coconut limacodid); Plate 10 Ojong Surjadi - Plonata diducta (a member of the Slug Caterpillar moths); Plate 11 Sudirdja - Setora nitens WLK (Nettle caterpillar); Plate 12 M.

        Decision at Sundown (Original Film Poster)

      Columbia Pictures, Culver City, CA 1957 - Original US one sheet poster for the third of Budd Boetticher's seven legendary Westerns with Randolph Scott, one of five released through Columbia. Near the end of Randolph Scott's career, producer Harry Brown, Scott, and Boetticher began work on a series of intelligent films that would combine Scott's minimalist approach to acting with Boetticher's lean, spartan approach to filmmaking. The result was a canon of films today referred to as the "Ranown" cycle, a rich canon of films that form an incredibly strong stylistic whole. Boetticher's approach to storytelling was traditional in the sense that it involved traditional Western characters, but revisionist in that his protagonist invariably worked alone, and sought his own brand of morality rather than one established by tradition, government, and family. Apart from ardent fans of Westerns, the films went unrecognized by most until Martin Scorsese made a case for them in his 1995 BFI documentary, "A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies." In this entry, Scott arrives a stranger in town on a vengeance mission, but over a course of twenty-four hours begins to discover things are not quite as he had believed, and that revenge will not be simple, nor necessarily even justified. Typical of these films, a Western with a seemingly traditional backdrop but a morally complex set of dilemmas. 27 x 41 inches (105 x 89 cm), linen-backed. Near Fine. Kitses, pp. 91-121. Hitt, p. 309.

        4 autograph letters signed (one of which with a full-page drawing) and 1 autograph picture postcard signed.

      Probably Villeneuve, 1955 to 1957. - 8vo and oblong 8vo. Altogether 8 pp. on 5 ff. With 4 autogr. envelopes. Intimate, longing missives to Antonia Mangelmann, probably a former model or student of Kokoschka's at his Salzburg Summer Academy: "You have proven to me a dedication, truly limitless for a mother, in this, your possibly finest letter; do not be angry if the Swan proves human in his desire to embrace you in thanks for all that you keep so close to my imagination that I was overjoyed all day, so very happy. How sweet are your two hearts, and how beautiful your two bodies, such harmony of earthly forms and divine souls was known only to Greek antiquity, and I confess frankly that I return to Salzburg on your behalf alone. To have to leave such wonderful sweetness! for soon I shall have to die, a fate which I find it hard to get used to! That there shall be a wall between the three of us, that the world of shadows shall remove me forever, while you and Inge strew like buds your charm and love beneath the sky, in the light of day and the star's nightly gleam, this hurts me as my love hurts me but still keeps alive / your Oskar" (translation). The reverse of this undated letter shows a sketch of three embracing persons, inscribed "for dear Antonia / variation on our theme / by OK". The persons depicted are apparently Antonia, her daughter Inge, and Kokoschka himself. - All letters with printed letterhead. Includes 11 pp. of responding letters.

        L'espèce humaine

      1957. Gallimard, Paris 1957, 14x20,5cm, broché. - Gallimard, Paris 1957, 14x20,5cm, broché. - Edizione in parte originale come riveduto e corretto, per la quale non è stato redatto carta di grandi dimensioni, una copia del servizio stampa. autografo raro e prezioso firmato Robert Antelme Claude Gallimard. Indietro piatti un po 'e marginalmente insolated. "Non c'è nessuna specie umana, non vi è una specie umana. Questo perché siamo uomini come loro che le SS in ultima analisi, impotenti davanti a noi.". Questo lavoro fondamentale sull'esperienza di nazisti campi era la terza e ultima pubblicazione della casa editrice effimera fondata da Marguerite Duras e Robert Antelme, il marito 1940-1946. Inosservato in questa prima versione confidenziale, solo poche copie sono state vendute, è stato messo in vendita l'anno successivo sotto nuove coperture da Robert Marin, il libro soffre la concorrenza dei tanti scritti sull'argomento sono apparsi subito dopo la guerra. Eppure, come riferito da F. Lebelley "in un momento in cui le storie abbondano, il potere speciale di quel libro, una prima sobrietà, sconvolge come scrittore fondazione libro di testo che ha anche preso riconosce Duras. , "l'ampia letteratura." Robert Antelme mai scrivere altro. Nonostante i riconoscimenti e onori, la specie umana sarà solo il lavoro di una vita. " (In Duras, o il peso di una piuma.) Grazie all'intervento di Albert Camus, il libro riappare dieci anni più tardi nel 1957 da Gallimard e poi sa una più ampia diffusione. Pertanto, questo libro è parte della storia della letteratura come uno degli scritti più importanti per la riflessione dolorosa ma necessaria sui campi di concentramento e la condizione umana. E 'dopo di lui che scrittori come Jorge Semprun suo amico inizieranno un nuovo approccio alla scrittura dei campi impossibili. Nel 1947 Antelme ha annunciato nella sua prefazione "solo tornando, abbiamo ridotto la nostra memoria con noi, la nostra esperienza di vita insieme e ci siamo sentiti un frenetico desiderio di raccontare così com'è. E nei primi giorni, però, sembrava impossibile colmare la distanza che abbiamo trovato tra linguaggio e abbiamo avuto questa esperienza [...] Come rassegnarsi a non cercare di spiegare come avevamo venire qui? eppure eravamo lì. Eppure era impossibile. Basta iniziare a dirci che eravamo soffocante. Per noi stessi, quello che avevamo da dire, allora abbiamo cominciato a sembrare inimmaginabile. " Raro ed importante problema, assente dalla maggior parte delle biblioteche nazionali e internazionali, tra cui il BNF. [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition en partie originale, car revue et corrigée, pour laquelle il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Rare et précieux envoi autographe signé de Robert Antelme à Claude Gallimard. Dos et plats légèrement et marginalement insolés. "Il n'y a pas d'espèces humaines, il y a une espèce humaine. C'est parce que nous sommes des hommes comme eux que les SS seront en définitive impuissants devant nous.". Cet ouvrage fondamental sur l'expérience des Camps nazis parut initialement en 1947. Ce fut la troisième et derniere publication de l'éphémère maison d'édition fondée par Marguerite Duras et Robert Antelme, son mari de 1940 à 1946. Passé inaperçu lors de cette première parution confidentielle, seuls quelques exemplaires furent vendus, il fut remis en vente l'année suivante sous de nouvelles couvertures par Robert Marin, l'ouvrage souffrira de la concurence des nombreux écrits sur le sujet parus immédiatement après guerre. Pourtant, comme le relate F. Lebelley : "à une époque où les récits abondent, la puissance particulière de ce livre-là, d'une sobriété première, bouleverse tel un texte fondateur. Livre d'écrivain aussi qui a pris, reconnaît Duras, "le large de la littérature". Robert Antelme n'en écrira jamais d'autre. Malgré les éloges et les honneurs, L'Espèce humaine restera l'oeuvre unique d'une vie." (in Duras, ou le poids d'une plume.) Grâce à l'intervention d'Albert Camus, le livre reparaît dix ans plus tard, en 1957 chez Gallimard et connaît alors une diffusion plus large. Dès lors, ce livre s'inscrit dans l'histoire littéraire comme un des plus importants écrits affrontant la douloureuse mais nécessaire réflexion sur les camps de concentration et la condition humaine. C'est à sa suite que des écrivains tel que son ami Jorge Semprun pourront commencer une nouvelle approche de l'impossible écriture des camps. Dès 1947, Antelme annonçait dans son avant-propos « nous revenions juste, nous ramenions avec nous notre mémoire, notre expérience toute vivante et nous éprouvions un désir frénétique de la dire telle quelle. Et, dès les premiers jours cependant, il nous paraissait impossible de combler la distance que nous découvrions entre le langage dont nous disposions et cette expérience [...] Comment nous résigner à ne pas tenter d'expliquer comment nous en étions venus là ? Nous y étions encore. Et cependant c'était impossible. A peine commencions-nous à raconter, que nous suffoquions. A nous-mêmes, ce que nous avions à dire commençait alors à nous paraître inimaginable. » Peu après cette réédition chez Gallimard, ce témoignage reçu son plus bel hommage sous la plume de Maurice Blanchot : « Quand l'homme en est réduit à l'extrême dénuement du besoin, quand il devient "celui qui mange des épluchures", l'on s'aperçoit qu'il est réduit à lui-même, et l'homme se découvre comme celui qui n'a besoin de rien d'autre que le besoin pour, niant ce qui le nie, maintenir le rapport humain dans sa primauté. Il faut ajouter que le besoin alors change, qu'il se radicalise au sens propre, qu'il n'est plus qu'un besoin aride, sans jouissance, sans contenu, qu'il est rapport nu à la vie nue et que le pain que l'on mange répond immédiatement à l'exigence du besoin, de même que le besoin est immédiatement le besoin de vivre. » (Maurice Blanchot, L'indestructible, in La Nrf n°112, 1962 repris dans L'Entretien infini) Les envois de Antelme sont d'une insigne rareté, à fortiori à son éditeur qui, après 10 ans d'oubli, permettra la consécration de cet ouvrage fondamental.

      New York: Dodd, Mead, 1957. First American Editions. 3 vols. 8vo. Each in a publisher's presentation binding of full blue morocco, upper covers with red morocco onlay stamped gilt lion rampant, spines lettered in gilt, each with 2 ornaments of red and gilt morocco onlays, turn-ins with double gilt fillets, t.e.g., by the Kingsport Press. Spines of first two volumes slightly faded. In original slipcases. First American Editions. 3 vols. 8vo. In Unique Presentation Bindings. These unique (as far as is known) copies of the First American Editions of Churchill's History were presented to the president of the Book-of-the-Month Club. The fact the the publisher did not present a copy of the fourth and final volume is not surprising: whereas the early volumes of the series were enormously successful, by the time the final volume was published (1958), interest had considerably dropped. According to Dodd, Volume I was published simultaneously in America (April 23, 1956); of Volume II , the English edition came out on Nov. 26, 1956, the American edition Dec. 3, 1956; of Volume III, the American edition on Sept. 23, 1957, appears to have preceded the English (on Oct. 14, 1957); oddly enough Dodds mentions no American edition of volume IV. Again, printings were enormous. Cohen, A267.3 (I); A267.3 (II); A267.3 (III)

        L'espèce humaine

      Gallimard 1957 - - Gallimard, Paris 1957, 14x20,5cm, broché. - Edition en partie originale, car revue et corrigée, pour laquelle il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Rare et précieux envoi autographe signé de Robert Antelme à Claude Gallimard. Dos et plats légèrement et marginalement insolés. "Il n'y a pas d'espèces humaines, il y a une espèce humaine. C'est parce que nous sommes des hommes comme eux que les SS seront en définitive impuissants devant nous.". Cet ouvrage fondamental sur l'expérience des Camps nazis parut initialement en 1947. Ce fut la troisième et derniere publication de l'éphémère maison d'édition fondée par Marguerite Duras et Robert Antelme, son mari de 1940 à 1946. Passé inaperçu lors de cette première parution confidentielle, seuls quelques exemplaires furent vendus, il fut remis en vente l'année suivante sous de nouvelles couvertures par Robert Marin, l'ouvrage souffrira de la concurence des nombreux écrits sur le sujet parus immédiatement après guerre. Pourtant, comme le relate F. Lebelley : "à une époque où les récits abondent, la puissance particulière de ce livre-là, d'une sobriété première, bouleverse tel un texte fondateur. Livre d'écrivain aussi qui a pris, reconnaît Duras, "le large de la littérature". Robert Antelme n'en écrira jamais d'autre. Malgré les éloges et les honneurs, L'Espèce humaine restera l'oeuvre unique d'une vie." (in Duras, ou le poids d'une plume.) Grâce à l'intervention d'Albert Camus, le livre reparaît dix ans plus tard, en 1957 chez Gallimard et connaît alors une diffusion plus large. Dès lors, ce livre s'inscrit dans l'histoire littéraire comme un des plus importants écrits affrontant la douloureuse mais nécessaire réflexion sur les camps de concentration et la condition humaine. C'est à sa suite que des écrivains tel que son ami Jorge Semprun pourront commencer une nouvelle approche de l'impossible écriture des camps. Dès 1947, Antelme annonçait dans son avant-propos « nous revenions juste, nous ramenions avec nous notre mémoire, notre expérience toute vivante et nous éprouvions un désir frénétique de la dire telle quelle. Et, dès les premiers jours cependant, il nous paraissait impossible de combler la distance que nous découvrions entre le langage dont nous disposions et cette expérience [.] Comment nous résigner à ne pas tenter d'expliquer comment nous en étions venus là ? Nous y étions encore. Et cependant c'était impossible. A peine commencions-nous à raconter, que nous suffoquions. A nous-mêmes, ce que nous avions à dire commençait alors à nous paraître inimaginable. » Peu après cette réédition chez Gallimard, ce témoignage reçu son plus bel hommage sous la plume de Maurice Blanchot : « Quand l'homme en est réduit à l'extrême dénuement du besoin, quand il devient "celui qui mange des épluchures", l'on s'aperçoit qu'il est réduit à lui-même, et l'homme se découvre comme celui qui n'a besoin de rien d'autre que le besoin pour, niant ce qui le nie, maintenir le rapport humain dans sa primauté. Il faut ajouter que le besoin alors change, qu'il se radicalise au sens propre, qu'il n'est plus qu'un besoin aride, sans jouissance, sans contenu, qu'il est rapport nu à la vie nue et que le pain que l'on mange répond immédiatement à l'exigence du besoin, de même que le besoin est immédiatement le besoin de vivre. » (Maurice Blanchot, L'indestructible, in La Nrf n°112, 1962 repris dans L'Entretien infini) Les envois de Antelme sont d'une insigne rareté, à fortiori à son éditeur qui, après 10 ans d'oubli, permettra la consécration de cet ouvrage fondamental. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] New edition, first for some parts, as corrected and reviewed, of which there were no large paper copies, one advance (service de presse) copy.

        The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold

      London: Chapman & Hall,, 1957. A Conversation Piece. Octavo. Original red cloth titled in gilt to the spine, bottom and fore edges uncut. A touch of fading to the spine. A near fine copy. First edition, large paper issue. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to his friend and biographer Christopher Sykes, "Christopher with love. Look out. It might be you next. Evelyn" on the front free endpaper. Sykes first met Waugh in 1929 shortly after the collapse of Waugh's first marriage, and the pair became good friends. According to Waugh's son Auberon, he was chosen to be the author's official biographer "because he was the only one of Waugh's obituarists who caught something of the gaiety as well as the recklessness of the man" (ODNB), though his book, published in 1975, was inhibited by a respect for Waugh's widow "a decline in energy" (idem), and perhaps a delayed feeling of resentment at his friend's success.

        Autograph Letter on her Calling Card, mentioning Traviata

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph note to an unidentified recipient on both sides of her printed visiting card. Ca. 47 x 84 mm., with "Maria Meneghini Callas" printed to recto. One corner very slightly creased. "Dear friend â?? I am terribly sorry but Saturday is taken with my rehearsal of Traviata. Please call me and we will see each other if possible after the 6th. Thank you and best regards."<br><br><br />Maria Callas was the most famous and also the most glamorous opera singer of her time. Her fame was enhanced by her attractive physique, and her early death turned her into an almost mythical figure. Initially performing dramatic roles including most of Wagner's soprano parts, she later focused on the Italian belcanto repertory. "Of Callas's artistic pre-eminence there can be no doubt. Among her contemporaries she had the deepest comprehension of the Classical Italian style, the most musical instincts and the most intelligent approach. There was authority in all that she did on the stage and in every phrase that she uttered. Her voice, especially during the early 1950s, was in itself an impressive instrument, with its penetrating individual quality, its rich variety of colour and its great agility in florid music." (Grove Music Online)<br><br><br />Callas sang Violetta in La Traviata at the Metropolitan Opera on February 6, 1957.

Illustrated in bright color throughout. The importance of this book cannot be overstated. In addition to becoming a household name, the Cat In The Hat is extremely important in the history of education and children's literature. At the same time that it was amusing, it was bringing the basic concepts of reading to tens of thousands of little children who were learning without being "taught". It was a marked departure from the boring Dick and Jane type reader. The challenge of writing an entire book using only 220 different words and making the book enjoyable was enormous. Teachers began to use this book in their classrooms and it was not long before the Cat In The Hat became an American icon. First editions of this title are extremely scarce.

        Kay Thompson's Eloise In Paris Drawings by Hilary Knight - SIGNED BY THOMPSON AND KNIGHT

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1957. First edition (2nd printing). Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A rare double signed copy of Thompson's second Eloise book, with whimsical illustrations by Hilary Knight. Slim quarto, original illustrated red cloth.  Signed by the author on the title page "Kay Thompson" and some years later, by the illustrator Hilary Knight, who adds above in a darker black ink "Hilary Knight / 2000." Wear to ends of spinein the original dust jacket, with small losses to the spine ends and rear upper edge.  A very good copy of a classic title rarely found signed by both of the creators.This second Eloise book details the comic adventures of the young heroine on a trip to the French capitol, accompanied by her nanny, her faithful pug Weenie, and her turtle Skipperdee. <br style="">Maurice Sendak called Eloise a "brazen, loose-limbed little monster" and anyone who has been introduced to the eccentric 6-year-old who spends her days at large in New York's Plaza Hotel pouring water down the mail chute and managing her self-imposed responsibilities can't help but be fascinated. "Eloise's birth was unexpected. At rehearsals of her act with the Williams Brothers, Thompson [who was a professional singer] prized punctuality. Then one day she was late. In a high, childish voice that she had never used before, she made her apology. One of her co-workers said, 'Who are you, little girl?' Thompson replied, 'I am Eloise. I am six.' The others joined in the game, each assuming a juvenile identity, and it became a regular rehearsal pastime" (New York Times). That pastime became a book, with three more to follow in Thompson's lifetime. "Eloise became an alternative persona for Kay Thompson, much as the dummy Charlie McCarthy was for Edgar Bergen? [allowing] Thompson to express contrarian thoughts and ideas. Eloise took form as a lonely and whimsical child who created her own world" (Marie Brenner).<br style=""><br style="">
