        Mémoires d'une jeune fille rangée - La Force de l'age - La Force des choses - Tout compte fait

      1958Paris, Gallimard, 1958, 1960, 1963, 1972. 4 volumes brochés, 3 vol. de 143 x 208 mm et 1 vol de 149 x 218 mm, 359, 622, 687 et 511 pp. EDITIONS ORIGINALES et collection complète de l'ensemble des volumes qui composent les mémoires de Simone de Beauvoir. Tous les exemplaires sont NUMEROTES SUR VELIN PUR FIL NAVARRE, tirage limité respectivement à 150, 115, 125 et 125 exemplaires (second papier après les tirage sur Hollande). Récit de la jeunesse de l'auteur jusqu'à sa rencontre avec Jean-Paul Sartre, "Mémoires d'une jeune fille rangée" ne devait pas connaitre de suite. "Inutile de raconter l'histoire de ma vocation, si je n'essaie pas de dire comment elle s'est incarnée" (Avant propos de La Force de l'âge). "La Force de l'âge" et "La Force des choses" complèteront donc ces mémoires. En 1972, onze ans après la sortie du dernier volet, parait Tout compte fait, ultime volet autobiographique : "Quand a paru mon essai, La Vieillesse, quelques critiques, quelques lecteurs, m'ont reproché de n'avoir pas parlé davantage de ma vieillesse. Cette curiosité m'a semblé souvent relever d'une sorte de cannibalisme plutôt que d'un véritable intérêt. Elle m'encourage néanmoins à compléter mon autobiographie." Collection complète peu courante.

        The Law Is the Law [La legge è legge (Archive of 194 original photographs from the 1958 film)

      France / Italy: Filmsonor, 1958. Archive of 194 vintage borderless single weight still photographs from the 1958 French-Italian film.

In an imaginary village on the border between Italy and France, a French customs agent (Fernandel) watches every move of an Italian smuggler (Totò), who eventually discovers that the agent is in fact Italian, not French. Shot on location in Italy. Entered into the 8th Berlin International Film Festival in 1958. All photos approximately 7 x 9.25 inches (17.75 x 23.25 cm). Very Good plus overall, photos with moderate curling. Film credits and synopses corner-stitched, Near Fine, and box Very Good plus.

        Guide to Rockets, Missiles, and Satellites.

      New York, Toronto, London: Whittlesley Hopuse, McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc.,, 1958. Octavo. Original yellow cloth. With the dust jacket. Diagrams and photographic illustrations in the text throughout. An excellent copy in the jacket, which is somewhat rubbed and creased around the edges with small chips to ends and corners. First edition, first printing, the author's own copy with his ownership inscription to the front free endpaper. Scarce. This layman's guide to rocket science, rocket warfare and the incipient space age comes from the library of the author, Dr Homer E. Newell Jr. (1915-1983). Newell was a mathematics professor and author who became a powerful US government science administrator, rising eventually to the third in command of NASA. In the early 1960s he controlled or influenced virtually all non-military unmanned space missions for the free world. He played a significant role in the negotiations which led to the creation of NASA, chairing a committee of rocket and satellite experimenters that drafted a consensus plan for a national space establishment which was presented to Eisenhower's science advisor, and advising the Senate preparedness investigating subcommittee... When the legislation establishing NASA was passed in 1958, Newell was given credit by his peers, including Van Allen, who called him "The Spark Plug" for a strong space science element in NASA. Newell joined NASA in 1958 (the year this book was published), and was successively assistant director for space sciences (1958-1960), deputy director of space flight programs (1960-1961), director of space sciences (1961-1963), associate administrator for space science and applications (1963-1967) and finally associate administrator of NASA, the third ranking position, from 1967 until 1974 (and as such overseeing the Moon Landing.) (1967-1974). In 1965, Newell was awarded the President's Award for Distinguished Federal Civilian Service. He was also commemorated in the Goddard Space Flight Center's Homer E. Newell memorial library, and asteroid 2086 Newell.

        Poems and Drawings.

      New Haven, Connecticut: The Readymade Press,, 1958. Oblong octavo. Original illustrated wrappers. With the printed crepe dust jacket. Full page illustrations by Albers throughout. Rear wrapper faintly marked, dust jacket mildly toned, with some minor chips to top edge, but an exceptional copy. First edition, presentation copy inscribed by Albers, one of 500 copies printed, in the very scarce dust jacket. This copy has a rare inscription by Albers to front free endpaper, "Margaret Schaack, with pleasure my A." We must assume Albers was here incorporating his initial into a sarcastic "With pleasure my A[ss]". This bilingual edition of Albers poems, accompanied by full page drawings, "is the first time that Albers has authorised a collection of his poems, almost all of them unpublished, and to accompany them he has chosen the largest number of his drawings yet to be reproduced as a group" (Jacket front flap).

        Continue. Stücke aus den Jahren 1958 bis 1964

      1958. Collection of 73 sheets of black cardstock forming a file of ideas, with glued-down papers containing collage, montage, and 129 typed "pieces" from the important Fluxus artist covering the years 1958-1964, each sheet of cardstock reading "you can put each piece as a way of action for the rest of the pieces" along the top edge. Illustrated throughout, some with hand-coloring. Oblong 4to. Pale green linen-covered box with label mounted to lid, contents loose as issued. Berlin (René Block) 1972. From a limited edition of 150, signed by Köpcke to inside of lid. A self-taught artist, Köpcke created works across a variety of media, including literature, painting, object art, conceptual art, and action art. Although he was influenced early on by surrealism, Dada, and futurism, Köpcke discovered a community of like-minded individuals in the International Fluxus movement and turned to making work based on everyday life, the media, and consumerism. He incorporated written elements into his collages and montages, and then read the texts and released recordings of the readings. In 1957, Köpcke opened a gallery in Copenhagen which focused on Fluxus and avant-garde art, and took on a key role in bringing Fluxus to Denmark and to all of Scandinavia. Incredibly scarce; as of November 2015, WorldCat lists only a single holding in North America.

Albumblatt mit U. O. O., 1931. Mit eh. Notenzitat (1 Takt) aus der Oper "Die Liebe zu den drei Orangen" (op. 33). 130:90 mm. Erste Ausgabe der Partitur von "Krieg und Frieden" (op. 91; nach dem Roman Tolstois), posthum in 1000 Exemplaren erschienen. Vorliegendes Exemplar angereichert durch ein lose beiliegendes eigenhändiges Albumblatt Prokofjews mit Notenzitat. Das mitabgedruckte Libretto verfaßte der Komponist gemeinsam mit seiner zweiten Lebensgefährtin, Mira Mendelson. Die Arbeit an der 1941 entstandenen und 1946-52 umfassend revidierten Oper bestimmte die letzten zwölf Jahre seines Lebens: "The outbreak of the war gave impetus to a project Prokofiev had sketched out in spring 1941, for an opera based on 'War and Peace'. His initial plan for a small-scale, intimate opera which would highlight the personal dramas in the novel was expanded, by the war aspects in particular, and [...] in August 1941 he began the music [...] The following April, he finished 'War and Peace' [...] He sent the score of the opera to Moscow for approval, and in the meantime began its orchestration [which he completed] in March 1943 [...] Following the advice of the Committee on the Arts in Moscow, Prokofiev had drastically revised the opera in the process; the war scenes had been extended and the patriotic elements strengthened. It was no longer an intimate opera but an epic and heroic work. Prokofiev's incentive in revising the score was the promise of a production of the opera at the Bol'shoy at the end of 1943, for which Eisenstein was to design the sets [...] But, as had happened so often, the performance was first cancelled, then postponed indefinitely. Throughout the rest of his life Prokofiev continually made revisions and additions to 'War and Peace', including the composition of two new scenes, in a series of attempts to secure performances. It was only in 1957, however, after his death, that anything like a complete version of the opera was staged" (New Grove). Als 1948 das ZK Prokofjews Werke "formalistischer Perversionen" bezichtigte, geriet insbesondere "Krieg und Frieden" unter Beschuß. - Ecken minimal bestoßen, sonst sehr wohlerhalten. Durchgehend in russischer Sprache. Erschienen als Teil 6 der Werke (Sobranie sochinenii); Verlagsnummern M. 26793a G., M. 26793b G. und M. 26793v G. OCLC 19801829. New Grove 15, 298. MGG 10, 1649.

        Original photographs from the estate of Frank E. Patterson III, former coordinator, Home Ownership and Community Development. Dhahran, early 1960s.

      1958. 56 black-and-white photographs (gelatin silver prints), including 36 negatives. Measurements between 10 x 7 cm and 14 x 9 cm. The present collection comprises a variety of photographs depicting official and private moments in Dhahran, including geological measurings, convoys, family life, and young Arabians at the beach. - After graduating from Harvard, Frank E. Patterson spent his early career in landscape architecture and land planning operations in the U.S. After WWII he joined the Ministry of Public Works in Kabul, Afghanistan, where he served nearly four years as Royal City Planning Architect-Engineer, followed by some years as consultant in housing and town planning for the U.S. State Department's Point IV Program in Beirut. His first office with Aramco, which he joined in 1958, was "Dhahran District superintendent of Home Ownership and Community Development. In 1960 he was named coordinator of that function and in that capacity represented Saudi Arabia at the first International Seminar on Town Planning in the Arab World, held in Cairo" (Sun and Flare, October 29, 1969, p. [7]; clipping included). The lengthy list of local community developments in which he played a major role includes "major expansions for Dhahran, Abaqiq, and Ras Tanura, the preparation of master town plans that have served to guide the physical development of Dammam, al-Khobar, Saihat, Qatif, Safwa, Madinat Abqaiq, Rakha and Rahimah, site selections and layout for Safaniya GOSP and camp and 'Udhailiyah and the installation of public water and sewer systems in Dammam and al-Khobar" (ibid.).

        Arbitration between Saudi Arabia and Arabian American Oil Company. Geneva, Albert Kundig for Aramco in New York, [1958].

      1958. Large 4to. 6 volumes: Part 1, Statesmanship in Arbitration; Part 2: Award; [Part 3] (4 vols.): Sessions of the Tribunal - Verbatim Transcript. Bound in full auburn morocco with gilt fillets to covers; gilt titles to spines; all edges gilt. Complete transcript of the Arbitration sessions, 27 January 1955 to 6 November 1958, and an extra 10 typed pages of details and comments by the General Counsel for the Arabian American Oil Company, George W. Ray, jr., dated 24 February 1959, included in the first volume, inscribed and signed to his wife Bonnie Dowd Ray (this volume and volume 2 have "Bonnie Dowd Ray" in gilt lettering on the lower spines). This special ten-page insertion in the first volume, on Ray's headed Aramco stationery, notes that "the contents of these pages, except annexes 9, 10, and 11 [i.e., the text of the Award in Arabic, English, and French], should never be disclosed". The typed insertion is inscribed "Dearest One" in Ray's own hand, with his postscript: "And to you, Dearest One, my love and thanks. I cannot begin to tell you how great and how timely year help was. I don't need to - because you know. I love you. George". - The subsequent 4 volumes, all in full leather, have the name of "George W. Ray, jr." in gilt at the lower spine of each volume. This is an important collection that documents in full detail the efforts by the Arabian American Oil company to keep control of the distribution of Saudi Arabian oil. The Arbitration was a result of the Saudi Arabian Government's decision, in 1954, to award a right of priority for Saudi oil transportation to the shipping company of Aristoteles Onassis. Aramco argued that this decision infringed upon their own exclusive right, granted by the Saudis in 1933 for a term of 60 years, to export the oil for which they drilled: in essence, the Onassis agreement prohibited Aramco from using their own ships. The Arbitration ruled in Aramco's favour. Consequently, the Saudi Government refused to enter into any further arbitrations and would agree only to extend Aramco's privilege for another ten years. By 1980, Saudi Arabia would take full control of their oil and its distribution; since 1988, the company has been officially known as Saudi Aramco. - Elegantly bound and in excellent state of preservation throughout. This documentation of the Arbitration process was published in a very limited press-run, with all copies going to the parties involved (Aramco and the Saudi-Arabian Government) and selected libraries. While a number of copies of the Session Transcripts are listed in library catalogues (including the Award and not infrequently additional volumes labelled "Memorials"), only the Cambrige University library is listed as holding another copy of the "Statesmanship in arbitration" volume. From the personal possession of Aramco's General Counsel, George W. Ray, jr., and his wife. OCLC 56152161; 12823218; 1958718.

        Eigenh. Korrekturen der Druckfahnen zu: Ferdinand Ebner. Gesammelte Werke. Im Auftrage der Ferdinand-Ebner-Gesellschaft herausgegeben von Michael Pfliegler und Ludwig Haensel. Bd. II: Die Wirklichkeit Christi. Brenneraufsätze. Für den Druck vorbereitet von Franz Seyr. Wien, Thomas Morus Presse im Verlag Herder Wien, 1958.

      1958. 353, (3) SS. Gefalzte, beschnittene und einzeln klammergeheftete Einzellagen in Pappumschlag. 8vo. Die Korrekturen in blauem Kugelschreiber sowie Bleistift. Korrekturexemplar des Herausgebers Ludwig Hänsel zum zweiten, für 1958 geplanten aber nie erschienenen Band der von der Herder'schen "Morus-Presse" veranstalteten Ebner-Werkausgabe, von der nur 1952 der erste Band erschien ("Das Wort und die geistigen Realitäten"; EA Innsbruck 1921; Neuauflage 1957). Hänsel war 1919 mit Ludwig Wittgenstein zusammen auf Monte Cassino in Kriegsgefangenschaft gewesen und blieb auch später immer in enger Freundschaft mit ihm verbunden. Seine Beschäftigung mit der Philosophie führte ihn zu Ferdinand Ebner (1882-1931), der seinerseits als einer der bedeutendsten österreichischen Denker des 20. Jahrhunderts und als Antipode Wittgensteins gilt. Wie dieser vertritt Ebner in seinem Hauptwerk "Das Wort und die geistigen Realitäten" den für die Philosophie am Beginn des Jahrhunderts charakteristischen "linguistic turn", verbindet diesen aber mit der Existenzphilosophie Kierkegaards zu einem neuen, christlich-theologischen Ansatz, der traditionelle philosophische Probleme durch "dialogisches Denken" zu lösen versucht. - Die Korrekturen Hänsels betreffen vornehmlich Umbruch, Zeichensetzung und Layout, enthalten aber auch noch zahlreiche zusätzliche Anmerkungen des Herausgebers und editorische Randbemerkungen; insbesondere die Endnoten hat er noch ausführlich ergänzt. Hänsel starb 1959, ohne die auf fünf Bände projektierte Werkausgabe vollenden zu können; erst 1963-65 sollte Franz Seyr, der schon die Morus-Ausgabe redigiert hatte, die dreibändigen "Schriften" bei Kösel herausbringen.
