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.

        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.

Housed in a custom clamshell box. $4500.First printing of Nobel Prize-winner Franco Modigliani and Nobel Prize-winner Merton Miller's landmark theory of corporate finance.""Up to the middle of the 1950s, the literature of corporate finance consisted mainly of descriptions of methods of institutions. Theoretical analysis was rare. It was not until Franco Modigliani and Merton Miller, in 1958, presented their now-famous theorem, and at about the same time James Tobin (Nobel Prize 1981) and others started to develop the theory of portfolio selection, that a scientific theory emerged concerning the connection between financial market characteristics and the financing of investments, debts, taxes, etc. Once established, this theory developed very rapidly"" (Nobel Media). The Modigliani-Miller theorem is largely responsible for modern thinking on capital structure. It holds, in the absence of certain financial interference

        Spells and Philtres

      Sauk City, WI: Arkham House. Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket. 1958. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. SIGNED EDITION. (519 copies printed) This book is in Fine condition and has a Very Good+ to Near Fine- condition. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. There is some very beginning foxing to the endpapers. This copy has been signed by the author, with an inscription, on the front endpaper. The dust jacket has foxing to the rear cover along with some light ground-in dirt and some beginning bumping. "In 1920 Smith composed a celebrated long poem in blank verse, The Hashish Eater, or The Apocalypse of Evil which was published in Ebony and Crystal (1922). This was followed by a fan letter from H. P. Lovecraft, which was the beginning of 15 years of friendship and correspondence. With studied playfulness, Smith and Lovecraft borrowed each other's coinages of place names and the names of strange gods for their stories, though so different is Smith's treatment of the Lovecraft theme that it has been dubbed the "Clark Ashton Smythos." " "This is the first new book from the pen of the distinguished poet and short story writer, Clark Ashton Smith, in seven years. These poems by one of the foremost fantaisistes among contemporary writers will enchant and delight the lover of poetry and the macabre, for they are new ventures into the mystical half-world which beckons forever at the edge of awareness." "Clark Ashton Smith (January 13, 1893 – August 14, 1961) was a self-educated American poet, sculptor, painter and author of fantasy, horror and science fiction short stories. He achieved early local recognition, largely through the enthusiasm of George Sterling, for traditional verse in the vein of Swinburne. As a poet, Smith is grouped with the West Coast Romantics alongside Ambrose Bierce, Joaquin Miller, Sterling, Nora May French, and remembered as "The Last of the Great Romantics" and "The Bard of Auburn"." ; Signed by Author .

        Are there any? A chess problem book. (Signed)

      Stroud News and Journal [1958], Stroud, Glos - Duodecimo in green cloth with gilt spine and front board. pp 149. Signed and inscribed by the author on the ffep: "To A. F. Downey Jun. [?] with / best wishes from / Gerry Anderson / March 24/59." The first published work on Kriegspiel problems, which is still widely cited and recognized today among problemists. In a July 2006 article, the Problemist called it "a strong candidate for the title of 'most original chess problem book ever published. The work was apparently held in high esteem by Bobby Fischer as well: a member of the British Chess Problem Society once wrote to Anderson, saying: "I write because I must have another copy of Are There Any? I had solved only up into the thirties when last night I incautiously carried it down to the Marshall Club to show it to Jack Collins. Then, seeing it in Jacks hands, Bobby Fischer pounced upon it in great excitement and before the evening was over the two of them had so made it theirs, were so comically oblivious of the mere owner, that I hadnt the heart to explain that I had brought it to show, not to bestow." The Australian-born Anderson was a pilot in WWI in the 88 Squadron and later became a diplomat in the Queens service, but was reknowned in chess circles as a master composer. Anderson was also reputed to be the last person to have played Alexander Alekshin in tournament play in Lisbon (1946) before the latter's untimely death. Front board has several abrasive scuffs to cloth and there is a miniscule tear to the top of the ffep (not affecting signature), else very good. A very scarce book. OCLC lists only 9 copies in libraries worldwide. Betts, 39-21. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Cost of Capital, Corporation Finance and the Theory of Investment. IN: American Economic Review

      1958. First Edition . MODIGLIANI, Franco and MILLER, Merton Howard. ""The Cost of Capital, Corporation Finance and the Theory of Investment."" IN: American Economic Review, Volume XLVIII, Number 3, pp. 261-297. Menasha, Wisconsin: American Economic Association, June, 1958. Octavo, original printed orange paper wrappers. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $4500.First printing of Nobel Prize-winner Franco Modigliani and Nobel Prize-winner Merton Miller's landmark theory of corporate finance.""Up to the middle of the 1950s, the literature of corporate finance consisted mainly of descriptions of methods of institutions. Theoretical analysis was rare. It was not until Franco Modigliani and Merton Miller, in 1958, presented their now-famous theorem, and at about the same time James Tobin (Nobel Prize 1981) and others started to develop the theory of portfolio selection, that a scientific theory emerged concerning the connection between financial market characteristics and the financing of investments, debts, taxes, etc. Once established, this theory developed very rapidly"" (Nobel Media). The Modigliani-Miller theorem is largely responsible for modern thinking on capital structure. It holds, in the absence of certain financial interference—taxes, bankruptcy costs, agency costs, and asymmetric information—and in an efficient market, the value of a firm is unaffected by how a firm is financed. Thus, setting aside those financial disturbances, it does not matter if a firm's capital is raised by issuing stock or selling debt or, indeed, by what a firm's dividend policy is. Hence, the Modigliani-Miller theorem is often called the capital structure irrelevance principle. Interestingly, the core of the Modigliani-Miller theorem is adaptable. For example, when the interest on debt is tax deductible, the value of a company increases proportionally. The source of additional value is due to the amount of taxes saved by issuing debt instead of equity. This type of flexibility to the theory has made Modigliani-Miller one of the most important theories in corporate finance. Modigliani was awarded the 1985 Nobel Prize in Economics for this and for his ""pioneering analyses of saving and of financial markets."" Miller, in turn, was co-awarded the 1990 Nobel Prize in Economics for separate work ""in the theory of financial economics"" with his work with Miller cited for ""fundamental contributions to the theory of corporate finance."" Toning to spine and bottom half inch of front wrapper, creasing to corner of back wrapper. A near-fine copy. Rare.
