The dust jacket, still with its "" price, is near-fine as well -- essentially no external wear or soil at all, with a faint inkstamp on the front flap. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Affluent Society

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1958. First edition of the economist's landmark work. Octavo, original cloth with titles to the spine in silver. Boldly signed by John Kenneth Galbraith on the half-title page. Also laid in a signed letter dating from 1966 on Galbraith's Harvard University letterhead. Near fine in a bright near fine price-clipped dust jacket with light wear. A very sharp copy this book. John Kenneth Galbraith's breakthrough as a best-selling author came with "The Affluent Society" for which he was honored with the American Economic Association's prestigious presidency. The book also influenced both the Great Society program and the rise of the American "counterculture" in the 1960's. Listed on Modern Library's 100 great nonfiction books of the twentieth century. Galbraith's ideas often addressed the influence of the potential market power of large corporations (Dunn and Pressman, 2005). He believed that corporations could become price makers, rather than price takers, by weakening the accepted principle of consumer sovereignty (Galbraith, 1970). This, in turn, allowed corporations to efficiently increase the production of their goods.

        Bolschaja (Bolshaya, Bolshaja, Bol’shaja) Sovetskaja (Sovjetskaja, Sovietskaya, Sowjetskaja) Enziclojedija (Enciklopedia, Enziclopediya). Große Sowjetische Enzyklopädie, 2. Ausgabe, 50 + 1 + 2 Bände, 1949 – 1958.

      Moskau 1949 – 1958. - Zweite Auflage dieser monumentalen, gleichsam „amtlichen" Sowjet-Enzyklopädie. Bereits kurz nach Vollendung der ersten Ausgabe, deren Erscheinen sich über einen Zeitraum von 21 Jahren (1946 – 1947) erstreckt hatte, erließ der Ministerrat der UdSSR 1949 die Weisung zur Erstellung einer Neuauflage, die zwischen 1949 und 1958 in 50 Textbänden, einem Ergänzungsband und zwei Registerbänden erschien. Insgesamt waren ca. 16.000 Wissenschaftler an der redaktionellen Herstellung des Werkes beteiligt, die unmittelbar dem Ministerrat unterstellt waren. Läßt das Werk einerseits in toto eine gewisse Versachlichung und wissenschaftliche Verselbständigung gegenüber der Erstausgabe erkennen, so machten sich doch andererseits die ideologischen Einflüsse und Richtungsänderungen der Stalin- und Nach-Stalin-Ära bis in Detailfragen hinein bemerkbar. Dies läßt sich exemplarisch anhand des Artikels über den vormaligen Geheimdienstchef Berija verdeutlichen. Nachdem dieser 1953 entmachtet und hingerichtet worden war, erhielten alle Subskribenten die schriftliche Aufforderung, die betreffenden Seiten herauszutrennen und durch mitgeschickte Artikel über die Beringstraße und einen weitgehend unbekannten Politiker des 18. Jahrhunderts namens Bertholtz zu ersetzen. russisch 100000 Die Bände (seitlich) mit Resten von Bibliotheksschildern (der Universität Gießen), einige seitliche Flächen etwas klebend. Ein Kapital etwas angestoßen. Sonst die gesamte Ausgabe in sehr gutem, unversehrtem Zustand. Seiten sauber und fleckenfrei. Gutes Exemplar dieser monumentalen Sowjet-Enzyklopädie. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (Rubrik: Osteuropäische Enzyklopädien). Grundwerk in 50 Bänden, der Ergänzungsband 51 sowie die Registerbände I und II, somit vollständiges Werk in 53 Bänden. Blaue Original-Kunstlederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln. Vorderdeckel mit Prägerelief und umlaufender Prägeleiste. 2. Auflage. Mit ca. 100.000 Stichwörtern auf ca. 32.000 Seiten. Enthalten sind mehr als 40.000 teils farbige Abbildungen sowie knapp 2.400 Karten.

Housed in a newly made cloth with paper labels, clamshell box. Born in San Francisco in 1921 to Japanese parents, Ishimoto soon after removed to Japan. He returned to the U.S. in 1939 and was held in a detention camp for two years during the war. In 1946 he entered the School of Architecture at Northwestern University, and two years later, he transferred to the Institute of Design, where he studied photography under the direction of Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind In this, his first book, Ishimoto's bold use of contrast, the design of the frame, and the influence of his studies in architecture, give the appearance of coolness and detachment from sentimentality. However, his choice of subjects, a large body of which is children at play, addresses his humanity. "He has developed a visual idiom which constitutes a sort of personal critique on the civilization around him... his idiom is characterized by what might be described as psychological shadows..." , from the introduction by Tsutomu Watanabe. Yasuhiro Ishimoto is considered one of the most influential of Japanese photographers of his generation.

First edition. 8vo, publisher’s original black cloth with green metallic lettering on upper cover and silver and green lettering on the spine, in the original pictorially decorated dustjacket designed by Bill English. 244 pp. A fine copy of the book, as pristine and apparently unused, very well preserved with only a touch of near invisible evidence of age to the black cloth; the jacket is complete and whole with only some very light expected rubbing to the black paper as is usual. Unobtrusive, nearly imperceptible evidence of light crinkling at a lower corner. FIRST EDITION OF THIS CLASSIC OF THE BEAT GENERATION IN THE ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET. Arguably Kerouac’s best work, and his second best known, DHARMA BUMS largely introduced the world to poet Gary Snyder in the form of semi-fictionalized “Japhy Ryder”. The story is driven by Japhy, whose penchant for the simple life and Zen Buddhism greatly influenced Kerouac on the eve of the sudden and unpredicted success of ON THE ROAD. The same humor and zest for life that made ON THE ROAD the literary masterpiece of the Beat Generation is found here in DHARMA BUMS, but in a more cohesive story inspired by a more comprehensible goal. After its publication Snyder wrote Kerouac saying, “"Dharma Bums is a beautiful book, and I am amazed and touched that you should say so many nice things about me because that period was for me really a great process of learning from you...." “From the Pagan depths of Frisco’s bohemian bars to the dizzying heights of the snow-capped Sierras this is the story of two sensation-seeking hipsters and their jet propelled search for Experience.” These are experiences as only Jack Kerouac, voice of the Beat Generation, can relay them.
