        Anni Albers, »Runner«.

      - Ein fantastisches Sammlerstück für Ihr Zuhause: Visuell und haptisch ein herrliches Stück, stammt die Komposition »Runner« aus der Hand der sicherlich berühmtesten Textilkünstlerin und Protagonistin des Alltagsdesigns im 20. Jahrhundert, Anni Albers. Ursprünglich im Jahr 1959 als Tischläufer konzipiert, ist die Umsetzung als Wollteppich grandios gelungen! In enger Zusammenarbeit mit der Anni und Josef Albers Stiftung und durch diese authorisiert, wurde das Werk, welches Anni Albers' Drucktätigkeit der späteren Jahre anklingen lässt, in das Medium Teppich überführt. Überaus akribisch wurde an der Übereinstimmung mit dem Original gearbeitet, um eine höchst mögliche Übereinstimmung zu gewährleisten, die Limitierung auf 150 Exemplare kommt dem ebenfalls entgegen. Die manuelle Produktion des Teppichs in Indien, Nepal oder Pakistan erfolgte unter besonderem Augenmerk auf ethische Grundsätze, vor allem in Hinsicht auf Arbeitsbedingungen, Entlohnung und Kinderschutz in den traditionellen Knüpfbetrieben der jeweiligen Region und in den beteiligten Familien. Es versteht sich von selbst, dass das Material vollkommen unbelastet ist und die Wolle nur mit Pflanzen gefärbt wurde. Ein wertiges und einnehmendes Stück angewandte Kunst, ein kleiner, privater Kunstgenuss für jeden Tag! 275 x 75 cm, 100% Wolle handgeknüpft, limitierte Edition (150 Expl.), mit Echtheitszertifikat, aufwändig verpackt, mit »Care & Fair«-Label.

        Lettre autographe signée à Pierre Jean Jouve. Giens, 20. X. 1959.

      1959. 2 pp. in-4 à l'encre noire sur papier vélin, enveloppe conservée. Emouvante lettre autographe par laquelle Saint-John Perse renoue avec Pierre Jean Jouve : "Je ne romps pas sans émotion ce silence de 20 ans que j'ai laissé croître en moi comme un mal [...] Mon cher Jouve, c'est une chose assez étrange que cette confiance si longtemps faite à votre clairvoyance, et cette certitude en moi que vous ne pouviez vous méprendre sur mon mutisme. Je n'ai connu de vous qu'élégance et générosité littéraire, et je n'ai même pas su vous remercier de la confiance que vous vouliez bien vous-même me garder. J'irai simplement à vous, cher ami, et serai heureux de retrouver votre regard, un jour entrevu au début de la guerre". - On peut lire sous la plume de Jouve, dans le Cahier de l'Herne qui lui est consacré, un très élogieux texte intitulé Exil de Saint-John Perse: " ... dans un temps de dissolution, au milieu des orages et des outrages divers qui tendent à détruire la beauté, l'

        Arabian Sands.

      London: Longmans, Green and Co, 1959. First edition of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Wilfred Thesiger on the title page, with a contemporary signature. An excellent example in a near fine dust jacket with some rubbing to the extremities. Map unopened in the inside pocket of the rear pastedown. Though educated at Eton and Oxford, Wilfred Thesiger was repulsed by the softness and rigidity of Western life-"the machines, the calling cards, the meticulously aligned streets." In the spirit of T. E. Lawrence, he set out to explore the deserts of Arabia, traveling among peoples who had never seen a European and considered it their duty to kill Christian infidels. His now-classic account is invaluable to understanding the modern Middle East. "Following worthily in the tradition of Burton, Lawrence, Philby and Thomas, [Arabian Sands] is, very likely, the book about Arabia to end all books about Arabia" (The Daily Telegraph, London).

        Autograph letter card signed and autogr. poem signed. N. p., 23. X. 1959.

      1959. Oblong 8vo. 2 pp. Poem: Small 4to. 1 p. 11 lines. To Viveka Heyman, in German: "A few days ago Prof. Valentin called me requesting information, and in the course of the conversation I learned that you had published a review of 'Flucht und Verwechslung' in the June/July issue. I had not received that issue. It was sent to me since, and I was blessed with the great happiness of finding myself so deeply, so uncommonly understood. Dear Viveka Heymann, where on earth may one feel safe and at home but there where two humans encounter each other at the utmost peak of experience [...]". - The 11-line pencilled poem, dedicated to Heyman, is taken "from the cycle, 'Still Death Does Celebrate Life'": as Nelly Sachs has noted in ballpoint at the upper edge, it was "written at the moment of greatest despair in Beckomberga Hospital".

        "La Vraie Histoire du Jazz" - Autograph Book Manuscript

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph manuscript of the influential French critic, historian, and record producer's book Histoire du vrai jazz (Robert Laffont, 1959), under its previous title of La Vraie Histoire du Jazz. Approx. 620 pp., of which 12 are typewritten with corrections, in 16 heavy paper folders, inside a very handsome custom archival box designed to resemble a parcel bound with string. 9 x 4 x 11.5 inches (23 x 10 x 29 cm). One dent and light shelf wear to the box; some light toning and foxing to the manuscript leaves; overall in fine condition.<br style="">Panassié traces the evolution of jazz, from its origins in New Orleans to the 1950's. A short introduction explains (translated from the French): "Why 'true'? Because so many articles and books have been written confusing authentic jazz with false jazz, and relating the history of jazz so inexactly, that it is important to get things straight. This book is not about the history of what too many badly-informed people believe to be jazz, which has only the most superficial connection to the music, but rather the history of true jazz, the music of black Americans. [...] Jazz is the musical language of another race. We others, whites, can understand it, even speak it, provided that we take pains to learn it, to assimilate ourselves. It was through contact with black people that I learned what real jazz is. My conception of jazz is theirs..." Throughout the manuscript, corrections and changes have been made to the text, frequently including alternate titles for the chapters. The first page shows several possible variations on the book's title: "Histoire du vrai jazz," "La veritable histoire du jazz," and "La vraie histoire du jazz." Each chapter's folder includes a small covering leaf in another hand, summarizing the chapter.<br style="">The work comprises the following chapters:  I. Les Origines du Jazz; II. Naissance du jazz à la Nouvelle-Orléans; III. Où l'on voit le jazz grandir [several other possible titles struck through]; IV. Chicago; V. Louis Armstrong; VI. Harlem; VII. Duke Ellington; VIII. Les années 1930-1936; IX. La période "swing" ou L'ère du swing; X. et XI. La Période Swing (II) et (III); XII. Le Be-bop n'est pas du jazz; XIII Renaissance Nouvelle-Orléans; XIV. Le jazz en France (partially typed); XV. Le Jazz des années 1950 ["Le Jazz d'aujourd'hui" struck through].<br style="">An important manuscript from the the founding president of the Hot Club de France (1932), the man almost solely responsible for bringing jazz to France. In a changing world of jazz, Panassié was an ardent exponent of traditional jazz â?? strictly Dixieland â?? and famously dismissed bebop as "a form of music distinct from jazz." He harbored a particular love of style similar to that of Louis Armstrong from the 1930s and criticized West Coast jazz as inauthentic, partly because most musicians were white and also "sounded white."  Despite his traditionalist views on the art form, his influence on the reception of jazz in France, and in shaping the cross-cultural dialogue between American and French musicians, cannot be overstated.

        Ekonomicheskii raschet nailuchshego ispolzovaniia resursov [The Best Uses of Economic Resources]

      First edition. Limited to 3.000 copies.Translated in English in 1965.L. Kantorovich (1912-1986) – prominent Russian mathematician and economist. He shared Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel with T. Koopmans in 1975 "for their contributions to the theory of optimum allocation of resources". In this work, L. Kantorovich developed his method of linear programming he first made public in 1939. L. Kantorovich started as great mathematician but interested in economics since 1939. He worked a lot and wrote a lot through wartime for economics. Amongst other works, he wrote this book in 1942.Kantorovich’s conclusions made about the role of prices in planned economy were very dangerous for his further academic career and possibly life in Stalin era. So he returned to study math after WWII was finished. Then he worked in Soviet nuclear project. After Stalin’s death, the role of economy in Russia was recognized more important than earlier. In 1958 Kantorovich founded first faculty for mathematical economics in Russia and in 1959 he published this work for the first time. It is just for this work L. Kantorovich became Nobel laureate.

        Photograph signed ("C. G. Jung") and inscribed "Arcana publicata vilescunt". N. p., [1959].

      1959. 225 x 185 mm. Framed and glazed. Showing him in conversation with Hugh Burnett, the plinth of a bust showing behind him, at a tea-table. - The haunting phrase "Arcana Publicata Vilescunt", which may roughly be translated as "secret knowledge when published is made profane", is to be found on the title-page of the first edition of the "Chemical Wedding" of Christian Rosenkreutz (1616), an alchemical allegory by the early Rosicrucian and later Silesian father, Johann Valentin Andreae, and edited by the aptly-named Johann Friedrich Jung. The teasing inscription on this photograph refers to the fact that it was Hugh Burnett's programme, "Face to Face", that brought Jung into contact with a mass audience for the first time. One of the viewers of the programme, Wolfgang Foges, contacted Burnett's interviewer, John Freeman, and asked him to contact Jung to sound him out about the possibility of writing a book explaining his views for the intelligent general reader rather than the specialist. Freeman conducted two interviews to this end with Jung, but was met with a firm but polite refusal. Jung then had a dream in which he was speaking in a public forum to 'a multitude of people who were listening to him with wrapt attention and understanding what he said'. When asked by Foges if he would reconsider, Jung agreed, on the condition that it consisted not just of his own writings but included essays by his closest followers, and was to be edited by Freeman. The result, which was to appear after Jung's death, was "Man and His Symbols", 1964 (cf. Deirdre Bair, Jung: A Biography [2004], pp. 619-620).
