        Guerillaführer, Arzt. Autor und Ikone der Kubanischen Revolution (1928-1967): Eigenh. Brief mit U. (A.L.S.).

      Ohne Ort, 26. VI. 1958. 8°. 1 S., - Früher Brief des kaum dreißigjährigen "Che" (eigtl. Ernesto Guevara de la Serna) aus der Kampfzeit in der Sierra Maestra, in der kubanischen Provinz Las Villas: "Hugo: Pasare tu informe al C [omandante] G, [General (?)] para que el decida, que debo recordarte que Paz es nuestro mayor capitán. Un p[o]co duro a veces pero justo y muy valiente. - Les mando unos zapatos pero no son para u[ste]d[e]s, sino para quien lo necesite. Te saludo/ Che [.]". - // - Che nahm im Dezember 1956 an der Landung von Castros Revolutionären auf Kuba teil. Er wurde bald Comandante und kämpfte bis 1959 als Anführer im letztlich erfolgreichen Guerillakrieg mit gegen den von den USA unterstützten Diktator Batista. - Che erinnert in unserem Brief seinen Leutnant Hugo del Rio Guerra daran, dass ihr Mitkämpfer Ramön Paz der höhere Anführer ist. Dieser sei manchmal ein wenig hart, aber gerecht und sehr tapfer. Che verspricht, Waffen (hier verhüllend als "zapatos = Schuhe" bezeichnet) zu schicken, die denen gegeben werden sollen, die sie brauchen. - Ramön Paz Borroto (1924-58) fiel am 28. Juli als Comandante nahe Providencia. Erst zum Jahresende sollten die Rebellen die entscheidende Schlacht um Santa Clara gewinnen und die Macht in Kuba übernehmen. - Vom karibischen Klima gebräunt; wenige Randeinrisse. - Briefe Ches noch vor der Machtergreifung der Kommunisten in Kuba und mit direktem Bezug auf den von ihm angeführten Guerillakampf sind von größter Seltenheit.

        Sabbataï Zevi, le Faux Messie" Fresque lyrique en 1 Prologue et 4 Actes de Nathan Bistritzky Rédaction pour chant et piano Durée: env[iron] 2'h. 15.'' Piano-vocal score of the opera. Autograph musical manuscript signed in full and dated on the last page of music "Paris, 1958"

      - Sabbataï Zevi is the fourth of Tansman's seven operas. The opera received a concert performance on March 3, 1961, at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, but has apparently never been staged. Max Eschig, Paris, published a piano-vocal score in 1966. The choral score accompanying the present autograph was most probably created for the 1961 production of the opera. The composer considered Sabbataï Zevi the best of his operas. Like many of Tansman's later works it is based on a distinctly Jewish subject. ". Tansman was a French composer and pianist of Polish birth. Disappointed with his reception in Poland, he moved to Paris, giving a début recital in February 1920. Soon after his arrival, he became friendly with Stravinsky and Ravel, both of whom encouraged and advised him. Acquainted with many leading musical figures in Paris during these years, Tansman was part of the circle of foreign musicians, known as the Ecole de Paris, that included Martin , Alexander Tcherepnin, Conrad Beck and Marcel Mihalovici. While his music retained many distinctively Polish features, such as Mazurka rhythms and Polish folk melodies, and while he wrote collections of Polonaises, Nocturnes, Impromptus, Waltzes and other Chopinesque miniatures, neo-classical traits appear in works [from about 1925]. Although he never completely abandoned a diatonic framework, critics of the 1920s and 30s described his harmony at times as Scriabinesque and atonal. Tansman was quick to achieve international success. He settled in Los Angeles in 1941 where he became acquainted with Schoenberg, renewed friendships with other European émigrés, including Milhaud and Stravinsky, and composed a number of film scores. He returned to Paris in 1946." Caroline Rae in Grove Music Online."Tansman was as adept at writing in C major as he was at composing serially and he made use at different times of atonality and polytonality. The music of his opera Sabbataï Zevi (1953-9), which tells of the rise and fall of the 17th-century mystic, is post-tonal in style." Anne Giradot and Richard Langham Smith in the New Grove Dictionary of Opera. Folio (349 x 270 mm). Unbound. 6 signatures of 6 bifolia and 1 signature of 4 bifolia wrapped in another bifolium protected by onionskin paper, all wrapped in blank bifolium of 20-staff music paper. 1f. (title), [i] (second title, cast list, and contents), [i] (historical background), 180, [iv] (blank) pp. Notated in blue and black ink on pre-printed 16-staff music paper with blindstamp of Edition Max Eschig, Paris. Marks in blue ink written over (i.e., reinforced) in black ink in front matter and through p. 11; only blue ink from p. 12. Date to upper right corner of p. 1: "1957-58." Date and signature to end of score: "Alexandre Tansman Paris 1958." Durations marked throughout. The overall duration as given on the title (repeated on the second title and at the end of the score) is to be read as "2 hours 15 minutes." Autograph corrections, some major, in both ink and pencil. Directions to engraver in pencil. Performance-related annotations in various hands in red, blue, and graphite pencil. Cues for entrances of characters and chorus marked in red pencil.Slightly worn; occasional staining, especially to p. 162.Together with:Sabbataï Zevi, le faux Messie. Chœurs (chantés et parlés). [Choral score.] Large folio (375 x 278 mm). Stapled. 17, [iii] (blank) pp. Facsimile of autograph manuscript. Copyright note of Editions Max Eschig, Paris, dated 1961, to foot of first page.

        [Moxon & Co., Edward- Autograph Letter Signed] To Bernard Bolingbroke Woodward

      3 pages. A fascinating and informative letter in the backdrop of the historical dispute between many key players (Moxon & Co; its acting manager and later partner, J. Bertrand Payne; the poet Alfred Tennyson; and the illustrator Gustave Dore). A complicated and intertwined series of events (beginning with Edward Moxon's death in 1958) had transpired, culminating in Payne's rise to power in the company and the resultant estrangement of Tennyson (as well as Browning and Swinburne), all factors leading to the decline and ultimate closure of the famed publisher. Signed Moxon & Co., and probably written by one of the principal partners (other than Payne, who is mentioned in the letter), to Bernard Bolingbroke Woodward, influential nonconformist, antiquarian collector, and librarian to the Queen at Windsor Castle. A letter written seemingly in response to queries concerning Gustave Dore as well as the availability and prices of some original illustrations and proofs. On Moxon's 'Dover Street Stationary,' March 6, 1867. "Dear Sir, We will send for a copy of Dore's 'Elaine' for notice in the next No. of the 'Fine Arts Quarterly Review.' Dore was quite mistaken as to the motives which led to his having a commission for the "Idylls of the King..." He adds, "Our literary partner, J. Bertrand Payne, who has studied art as applied to book illustration rather deeply, was long of opinion that the Frenchman's talents would be profitably employed in the depiction of those grandly chivalrie scenes...he discussed the subject with the Laureate & Mr. Palgrave very fully..." He goes on to explain in detail the nature and quality of Dore's illustration, adding, "These drawings are for sale & are thrice the size of the Engravings." He discusses an edition published in Paris, by Hachette et Cie and adds, "so much approved by the Emperor, that through the intervention of Lord Cowley he accepted its dedication for the editor and is about to confer upon him the baron of the region." etc., much more. Glue and mounting marks along outside edges, else very good.

        The Doomsters (Inscribed First Edition)

      Cassell & Co. / A Crime Connoisseur Book, London 1958 - A just about Fine copy of the book with the outer edge of the page block foxed, otherwise in excellent condition. In a Near Fine dust jacket with minor wear at the spine ends and a few spots of color added to the jacket. Inscribed "To Jake Zeitlin with best wishes Ken Millar (Ross Macdonald)." Jake Zeitlin operated a well respected rare book business in Los Angeles, so it's not surprising that he would have crossed paths with the author. The seventh book in the Lew Archer series, in which Ross MacDonald seems to find his true voice and style. A private detective working in Southern California, Archer works on primarily suburban crimes, as he grapples with his own splintered past and depression. In an interview with The New York Times, MacDonald muses, "The individual is the great single source of new casualties in the world. A fiction is a kind of imitation of causality. I write about new causalities and new values, seen in the mirror of justice and mercy." In "The Doomsters," MacDonald evidently risked more of himself - laying bare his own struggles with moral psychology, sociology, and the continuity of family life - to fashion a novel that remains among the finest of the Lew Archer series. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
