        Kakkenpo: Karate Kyohan

      Bok. Renbukan. 1958. 114 s. Hardback with printed board cover (as issued). This is a true gem for the serious collector and researcher of martial art books.Sai Choko (also known as Tsai Chang Gan) was a renowned author and teacher of karate in Japan. In February 1941 the Japan Times published a photo of some men doing what looked like karate above this caption: "A new form of defense has been worked out by Mr. Choko Sai, of Formosa, combining points of judo and a kind of boxing perfected in the Loochoo Islands." . Moreover, at the end of the fifties he was named president of board of directors of AJKF (All Japan Karate-Do Federation) organization founded by master Kanken Toyama in 1946. This is an early and very rare karatebook and one of the few described as crane kempo. Karate written with the old kanji meaning Chinese hand (Tang hand). The books pages have of course darkened, but the book is preserved in a very good condition.

      4, jew. ca. 65 S., zahlr. teilw. farb. Abb., Broschur., Etwas gebrauchsspurig allg. schöne Exemplare. Vollständige Reihe der von Richard Paul Lohse, Josef Müller-Brockmann, Hans Neuburg und Carlo L.

Typografie, Grafik und Werbung am Bauhaus. - Neue Grafik kann aus historischer Sicht als programmatische Plattform und wirksamstes publizistisches Organ der zu ihrer Zeit international massgeblichen Schweizer Grafik betrachtet werden. 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.

        Rosalind

      Frome & London: privately printed for Muriel Franklin by Butler & Tanner Ltd. [undated but sometime between 1962 and 1976] 1958 - 28-page pamphlet, stapled. Original blue-green wrappers, title to upper wrapper in black. Frontispiece from a photograph of Franklin. Wrappers just a little rubbed and toned at the extremities, the contents fresh and clean. Excellent condition. First and only edition of this rare biographical sketch published privately by Franklin's mother Muriel, signed by her at the end of the introduction. Though it is undated, she mentions the Nobel Prize awarded to Watson and Crick in 1962, and so this pamphlet must have been published between then and her death in 1976. The possibility arises that it was written in part as a response to her daughter's relative lack of recognition during her lifetime, and the sad fact of her ineligibility for the Prize after her death. One copy of this pamphlet resides in the Franklin archive at Churchill College, Cambridge, but a WorldCat search locates no other institutional copies, and this is also the only one that has appeared in auction records. Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958) was a biochemist whose research elucidated the microstructures of coal and virus RNA, but she is best known for her pioneering X-ray crystallography of the DNA molecule at King's College, London. It was this work, in particular the famous "photograph 51", that convinced James Watson and Francis Crick that the structure of DNA was a double helix. Franklin's work was published third in the series of Nature papers that announced the discovery, and she received only vague acknowledgement from Watson and Crick at the time. Franklin died of ovarian cancer only a few years later, and it was not until 1961 that Francis Crick admitted in a letter to Jacques Monod that hers was "the data we used" to determine the molecule's structure (Nature Correspondence 425, September 2003). Watson's controversial account of the discovery, The Double Helix, and a 1975 biography by Franklin's friend Anne Sayre renewed public interest in Franklin's role in the DNA story, and she has now received the public acclaim that was not forthcoming at the time. Franklin's mother Muriel, who was reportedly inconsolable during her daughter's illness, wrote this biography "primarily for [Rosalind's] nieces and nephews, of whom she was very fond, but who were too young when she died to keep more than a dim memory of her. But perhaps those also who were born after her death may care to know a little about this aunt who died so young - she was only thirty-seven - so bravely, and in her short life achieved so much" (introduction). The sketch begins with childhood memories and describes the young Rosalind as possessing "a natural efficiency in whatever she was doing. and she could never understand why everyone could not work as methodically, and with equal competence" (p. 3). She was "a busy little girl, full of purposeful energy" whose approach to life was always "logical and exact. Even as a tiny child she could never accept a belief or statement for which no reason or proof could be produced. Particularly this applied to religion. On one occasion cross-examining me on the possibility of the existence of God, and being totally unconvinced by my replies to her searching questions, 'Well anyhow,' she triumphantly demanded, 'how do you know He isn't a She?'" (pp. 4-5). Another character trait that followed Franklin into adult life was her tempestuous personality, driven by passion that was "deep and strong and lasting, but she could never be demonstratively affectionate or readily express her deeper feelings in words. This combination of strong feeling, sensibility and emotional reserve, often complicated by an intense concentration on the matter of the moment, whatever it might be, could provoke either a stony silence or a storm" (p. 5). "She was always a little incalculable; a person of moods. and a depth of feeling not always realised by those who did not know or understand her very well" (p. 18). Muriel goes on to describe Franklin's school days, her various interests [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Mani (Signed And Doodled By The Author To Theodore Stephanides)

      The First UK printing published by John Murray in 1958. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. A little pushing at the spine ends. Light fading to the spine which has slightly encroached onto the front cover. Boards lightly marked places. Gilt tilting and motif remain bright. Light toning to the text block. The WRAPPER is in Very Good++ or better condition and is clipped (as commonly found) with the publisher's revised price present. A little minor rubbing and toning to the spine and rear cover with a few nicks. The John Craxton designed wrapper looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival protector. The book has been INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the first blank end paper: 'To Theodore Stephanides, with many greetings from Patrick Leigh Fermor, London, April 1964'. The author has also doodled a copy of the eye and the greek wording (relating to page 187 : 'Where is Alexander The Great.') from the frontispiece design. There is also the name in pencil of "T.Stephanides' to the upper front end paper. Theodore Stephanides was a Greek poet, author, doctor and naturalist. He is best remembered as the friend and mentor of the famous naturalist Gerald Durrell, featuring in many of Durrell's books including 'My Family and Other Animals, Birds, Beasts and Relatives', Durrell's brother Lawrence's 'Prospero's Cell', and Henry Miller's 'The Colossus of Maroussi'. He was a close friend of Leigh Fermor. A polymath, Stephanides was respected as a scientist and doctor, and acclaimed as a poet in both Greek and English, and translated a sizeable body of Greek poetry to English: notably a significant body of work by Greek poet Kostis Palamas and the Greek near-epic work Erotocritos. He was also a noted biologist and scientist who has three species named after him. He also wrote a definitive biological treatise on the freshwater life in Corfu. His autobiographical account of the Battle of Crete - 'Climax in Crete', and his fictitious account of Corfu and the Ionian Islands - 'Island Trails were widely read', but are now sadly out of print. A significant association copy and very scarce with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        rhythmus r.

      Self-published by the artist., Mšrbisch. 1958 - "rhythmus r", is a key work of Gerhard RŸhm, a program of linguistic concretism implemented consistently through all the senses. This printed version uses the mechanical flexibility of the typewriter and communicates the associative content of the written word by the spatial arrangement of words beginning with the letter 'R'. When read, the eye wanders up and down the pages, columns of R-words are printed close to page edges, the leitmotif of "regen rauscht" or 'rain rushing' cascading to the page sides. The acoustic recorded version is loud - RŸhm producing torrents of rain, paper tears, with listeners following the 'R' verb series "rauscht reibt rast" (Roar, rub, rest). With the artist book, RŸhm has also attempted to produce a similar acoustic sensation with one of the pages being a sheet of abrasive pink sandpaper. The printing on the verso of the sandpaper sheet reportedly resulted in numerous production problems, which means that the book remains a RŸhm rarity. The book is dedicated in print to Oswald Weiner on the front cover. pp. (28). Publisher's wrappers, gummed spine; glassine jacket. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        La porte étroite

      1958 - 2 vol., soit 1 volume Lausanne, André et Pierre Gonin, 1958, in-folio, 2 vol, soit 1 volume comportant le texte illustré de 165-[1] pp. ; et un recueil de documents variés, en feuillets, sous couvertures rempliées et emboîtages en demi-parchemin, Splendide ouvrage, illustré de 24 lavis en couleurs originaux peints à la main par Jean-Pierre Rémon, dont 10 à pleine page. Édition limitée à 165 exemplaires numérotés : un des 20 exemplaires sur Japon super-nacré des Moulins Tosa de l'Île Shikoku, comprenant une suite de dix aquarelles originales, signé à la justification par l'artiste et par l'éditeur (n° 6). Exemplaire exceptionnellement accompagné d'un recueil de documents, placé sous couverture et emboîtage identique, contenant les recherches et les peintures préliminaires à la conception et à la mise en page de l'ouvrage, collectées et réalisées par Jean-Pierre Rémon au cours de l'année 1958 : cet ensemble ouvre sur une préface manuscrite de l'artiste et se compose de nombreuses photographies, des lettres, des dessins originaux, ainsi que du journal de l'illustrateur lors de son séjour en Normandie, d'un portrait photographique de Gide inédit signé par Germaine Krull et dédicacée au dos par M. [illisible], d'un contretype représentant Gide à Fongueusemare offert à l'illustrateur par le neveu et filleul de Gide, d'un second contretype de Gide et de Malraux ainsi que de nombreuses photographies originales prises par Jean-Pierre Rémon au cours de ses recherches. Parmi les lettres, on peut lire celle de Dominique Drouin, neveu et filleul d'André Gide à propos d'une visite de Jean-Pierre Rémon à Cuverville et mentionnant la présente édition de La Porte Étroite. Rémon correspondait également avec André Gonin, son éditeur auquel il adressa deux cartes et une lettre contenant une aquarelle originale, envoyée de Fongueusemare, "où se promène encore l'ombre d'André Gide" : une des cartes, représentant une vue du Havre, évoque le séjour en Normandie de l'artiste et "la porte dérobée du jardin" de la propriété de Gide ; dans la seconde carte, ornée du château de Cuverville, Rémon écrit qu'il visitera le musée du Havre ancien pour "chercher des documents" ; dans la dernière lettre, toujours adressée à André Gonin, datée du 29 mars 1958 et envoyée depuis la propriété d'André Gide, le peintre évoque la porte du jardin et livre ses impressions : "je me suis senti envahi d'une étrange émotion comme si, vraiment pour la première fois, je venais de prendre contact avec les personnages du livre". Ce recueil contient aussi une suite en couleurs des illustrations de l'édition de La Porte Étroite, de nombreux croquis et aquarelles originaux signés. L'original du contrat de Mercure de France signé par Paul Hartmann clôt l'ouvrage. À la lecture du journal de Jean-Pierre Rémon, le lecteur saisit à quel point l'artiste, en plus d'avoir une excellente connaissance du texte et de l'auteur, s'est engagé dans ce projet, s'est imprégné de l'univers de Gide et de celui des personnages de La Porte Étroite. Ce travail est un bel hommage rendu à Gide, quelques années après sa mort. Très bel exemplaire, accompagné de cet unique et curieux recueil de l'artiste. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Rocket Summer. A musical outline

      [New York]: Alert, [1958-59]. 4to. 49 pp. Mechanically reproduced typescript, clean and unmarked. Original printed wrappers closed with three contemporary brass clasps. Based upon stories taken from Ray Bradbury's 'The Martian Chronicles,' the musical outlined here was never produced. This outline appears to be the earliest attempt to adapt Bradbury's story into a musical. Bradbury himself, along with seasoned screenwriter Sidney Carroll and Oscar-winning film director Leonard Rosenman, outline a proposed adaptation in detail. Attempts to make "Rocket Summer" into a musical thus took place earlier than previously thought. Lerner and Loewe famously were turned down in the 1960s when they asked Bradbury to adapt his story -- and it did not reach the stage until 2008, composed by Daniel Levy and with a libretto by Elizabeth Margid. This copy was that of screenwriter Sidney Carroll. An absolutely unique Bradbury item, with no other copies traced. Due the abandonment of the project, this copy retained by Carroll may well be the only copy extant. Light toning to edges, old tape adhesion on front wrapper.
