        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.

        Collection of Letters and Telegrams to Samuel Barber from the Premieres of "Vanessa" and "Antony & Cleopatra"

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A fascinating and important collection of autograph letters and telegrams to the important American composer, dating from the premieres of his two operas, Vanessa (1958), and Antony and Cleopatra (1966). Included are autograph letters from Aaron Copland, John Browning (who premiered Barber's Piano Concerto), Rosalind Elias (the original Erika in Vanessa and Charmain in Antony and Cleopatra), Ignace Strasvogel, and other friends and admirers, and telegrams from Leonard Bernstein, Martha Graham, Jerome Robbins, W. H. Auden, Noel Coward, and many others.<br style="">While Vanessa, with libretto by Menotti, won Barber the 1958 Pulitzer Prize for music, Antony and Cleopatra, written for the opening of the new Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center, was not well-received. Franco Zeffirelli, chosen to write the libretto and stage the opera, weighed down the production with over-the-top scenery, animals, and extras; technical difficulties marred the opening night. As Barber departed New York for Italy the very next morning, his years of success had for the most part come to an end. The 1966 letters to Barber reflect his unhappy state, with many of his friends consoling him over the bad reviews and assuring him that his music transcended the problems of staging.<br style="">Included are:<br style="">88 telegrams sending best wishes and congratulations on the première of Vanessa in 1958, sent by W. H. Auden, Noel Coward, Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Robbins, John Browning, Frank O'Hara, Stephen Spender, Martha Graham, Erich Leinsdorf, Antal Dorati, Andre Kostelanetz, Regina Reznik ("Your old Baroness"), Roberta Peters, G. Schirmer, Lillian Gish, Max Rudolf, Samuel Chotzinoff, the heads of ASCAP and NBC, and many other luminaries and friends.<br style="">3 letters about Vanessa, two ALS and one TLS, dated January 1958. One from Roberta Peters, celebrated Met coloratura, thanking Barber for sending her some music, mentioning that she is looking forward to learning Barber's song "Nuvoletta," and wishing him good luck for Vanessa, 2 pp.; one from Eleanor Belmont, a member of the Metropolitan Opera board, congratulating Barber on the premiere, 1 p.; and one from a music student, William Gordon, expressing his love for the opera and asking where he can obtain the score, 1 p. typed and undated.<br style="">19 letters, mostly autograph with one TLS, to Barber from before and after the 1966 premiere of Antony and Cleopatra. Dated September-November 1966. Letters are from: Ignace Strasfogel, 1 p; John Browning, 3 pp.; Rosalind Elias, 2 pp.;  John Barrows, 1 p.; Aaron Copland, wishing Barber the best for the opening, 1 p. with original envelope; David Johnson, from Time-Life Records, 2 pp.; C. W. Bailey, 3 pp.; Dick, 1 p.; Ellie Frankfurter, 3 pp.; an unidentified correspondent in Russian, 1 p.; Nina Fassler, 1 p.; Lisette Lewis and another correspondent in one airmail letter from South Africa, 3 pp.; Andrew Chiappe, 2 pp.; Channing Way, Jr (a West Chester friend),1 p.; Katy Katsoyanis, mentioning Dimitri Mitropoulos, 1 p.; "Chandler," 1 p.; Edith Jackson (Barber's old school teacher from West Chester!), 2 pp.; Horace P. Halsing (from West Chester), 1 p.; Mrs. Henry Holt, 3 pp.  Also included is one letter about the premiere addressed to "Bill" from "Ed" on the letterhead of the St. Thomas Aquinas Rectory, Chicago; and an envelope addressed to Barber (letter missing) from Sol Schoenbach, postmarked October 31, 1966.<br style="">Also included are 2 telegrams sent to Barber at the Metropolitan Opera House on the occasion of the premiere of Antony and Cleopatra. One is from an Ada Camillo congratulating Barber on behalf of all Cadegliano (Menotti's hometown in Lombardy). The other reads, "Love the story hated the music I think you are an American disgrace. Frank Terez (17)" - a comic reaction to Barber's music, but one that may have hit a nerve?

        The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.

      New York: Random House, 1958. First edition. Octavo, original illustrated boards, pictorial endpapers. Inscribed by Dr. Seuss opposite the title page. Very good in a very good dust jacket with some light rubbing. The year after Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, broke new ground in children's books with The Cat in the Hat, he brought back the immediately popular character--with 26 little cats under his red-and-white stovepipe, not to mention the mysterious "Voom"--for a new madcap adventure. The title was the second from Beginner Books, Geisel's own imprint at Random House; in very little time, as that line's identifying logo, "the Cat's image would become synonymous with learning to read" (Cohen, 324).

In der Zeitschrift wurde von den Protagonisten der Schweizer Schule beziehungsweise ihrer strengen Zürcher Fraktion ein fundamentaler Diskurs über die Grundlagen einer angesagten objektiven Kommunikation und einer konstruktiven Gestaltung geführt. Der Einfluss der Bewegung kann nicht hoch genug eingeschätzt werden. Weltweit wurde die Schweizer Schule. auch «International Style» genannt. zum Vorbild für die aufkommende konzeptionelle Ausrichtung des Corporate Design von zunehmend global operierenden Grossunternehmen. Aber auch auf die Gestaltung solitärer Aufgaben wie Plakaten. Ausstellungen und Publikationen hatte die Bewegung vorbildhaften Einfluss. Die Neue Grafik ist heute ein wichtiger Orientierungspunkt der jüngeren Geschichte grafischer Gestaltung. Nach dem digitalen Höhenflug lässt sich eine neue Nachfrage nach sachbezogenen Konzeptionen und einer klaren Formensprache feststellen. So ist auch das Interesse an der fast fundamentalistisch zu nennenden Haltung der vier Zürcher Grafiker zu erklären. die als Herausgeber für die Inhalte der Zeitschrift verantwortlich zeichneten.» [Dank an den Lars Müller Verlag] Versand D: 20,00 EUR Buchwesen - Buchdruck, Typo Kunst - Grafikdesign

        Autograph Letter Signed.

      This legendary R & B tenor hit the charts in the mid-50s with the Drifters and such hits as "Money Honey," "Such a Night" and "Honey Love" before going solo. ALS, 1p, 8½" X 11", New Rochelle, NY, 1958 January 2. Addressed to Donald. Very good. Yellowed tape stain at each corner and one (1¼") at each side. On delightfully corny letterhead of "Clyde McPhatter's Tune Shop," this rare letter was written shortly after his split from the Drifters and the height of his fame as a soloist. A gracious letter to an admirer, reading in part: "Hope that you will like the little verse, that I am sending you. Very sorry that I don't have any pictures at this time, hope when you write again I'll have some on hand. So until then be good...." Bold full signature. The alcoholic McPhatter died of a heart attack at age 39, making his autograph material quite uncommon.

        Espagne Païenne

      Paris: Buchet/Chastel, 1958. First French Edition. INSCRIBED by Richard Wright on the half title. Octavo, 337 pages in wrappers. A Near Fine, unread copy of the first French edition, INSCRIBED to the French journalist and literary critic, Gilbert Guilleminault: "A / M. Gilbert Guilleminault / Homage de l'auteur / Richard Wright." This is a review copy; the letters S.P. (for Service de Presse) are embossed on the rear cover. The pages are uncut at the top. They are also age-toned, as is often the case with French soft-cover books from more than 50 years ago. There's a very small tear at the top right corner of the front free end paper. Signed copies of this book, in any language, are extremely scarce in the market. Espagne Païenne was first published as "Pagan Spain" in the U.S. in 1957. A very critical look at Spain under Franco and the influence of Catholicism.

Premier livre illustré de Raoul Ubac par la technique des ardoises gravées. 10 ARDOISES GRAVÉES reportées sur pierre lithographique par R. Ubac (1910-1985) et tirées en couleurs. « Ubac répond par des lithographies saisissantes : pierres taillées par la lumière. [...] Ubac tresse les formes, il a le primitivisme très ample, il tangue avec des hiers et des demains, la plainte millénaire, il en donne la borne, au ras des champs et des labours, un cri se fige en une monumentalité frémissante. Ubac et Bonnefoy dressent l'un des plus beaux constats de se retrouver ensemble dans la justesse. » (Y. Peyré, Peinture et poésie. Le dialogue par le livre, p. 164).

        "Greetings from the Deep South ... Islam is on the march" Malcolm X handwrites a most prophetic quote

      Tampa, Florida, September 24, 1958. 5.5" x 3.5". "Autograph Letter Signed ""Malcolm X"" in red ink on message side of a picture postcard. Color, 5.5"" x 3.5"". Captioned ""World-famous Sunshine Skyway Bridge crossing Tampa Bay from St. Petersburg to Bradenton"" and ""Business section of downtown St. Petersburg."" Band across center: ""Greetings from St. Petersburg Florida."" 3¢ Statue of Liberty postage stamp cancelled Tampa, Florida, September 24, 1958. Addressed by Malcolm X to ""Miss Gloria Owens / 12208 Scottwood / Cleveland, Ohio / #12."" Fine condition.In full, ""Greetings from the Deep South - from the Cotton fields to the Orange Groves, Islam is on the march.""Gloria Owens was the sister of Maceo X Owens, secretary at Muhammad's Mosque No. 7 in Harlem where Malcolm X preached alongside Louis Farrakhan. By March 1964, Malcolm X had grown disillusioned with the Nation of Islam and its leader Elijah Muhammad. After a period of travelling in Africa and the Middle East, Malcolm X founded Muslim Mosque, Inc. (MMI) and the Organization of African Unity. Malcolm X continued efforts to publicize Muhammad’s alleged extramarital affairs, and sent an aide to gain signatures for a paternity suit by two of the leader’s former secretaries.During the first week of March 1964, Elijah Muhammad asked his advisors about the title and property rights to Malcolm’s home in East Elmhurst, Queens. Mosque No. 7 secretary Maceo X Owens (Gloria Owens' brother) filed papers on behalf of the Nation of Islam to have the former minister and his family evicted from their Queens home. The Nation of Islam’s stance on the eviction trial was that the home had been purchased for Malcolm X in his ministerial capacities, but that he had severed the relationship with the establishment of MMI. The eviction trial was held on June 15 - 16; the Judge ruled in favor of the Nation of Islam in September 1964, but tabled the execution of the warrant until January 1965. Three days before his assassination on February 21, 1965, Malcolm X and his family moved to the home of close friend, Thomas Wallace. "
