        Marketing Photo Album and Ephemera for Crown Estates. Rialto, California: 1959

      Rialto, California: rONALD ePSTEIN, 1959. Near Fine. Quarto. 12" x 9.75". Full leather 14-ring binder, stamped in gilt. 24 mylar sleeved leaves with 34 photographs (14 in color, the rest black and white) and 23 items of ephemera inserted on both sides. An additional 3 color photos, and five duplicates of one of the 8"x10" photos laid in. 16 of the photos (all black and white) measure 8" x 10", the rest around 3.25" x 5". Album near fine with bottom corner of joints just starting to crack; contents generally fine.Crown Estates was meant to be a subdivision in Rialto, California offering homes, "of top quality . . . completely equipped and engineered to make day-by-day living less tedious." Its builder, Ron Epstein, planned the site near the intersection of Meridian Avenue and 6th Street. Although a newspaper puff piece implied the building of 40 homes, we're not sure Epstein was able to accomplish anything more than a couple of models. The album offered here documents his marketing efforts.Epstein took out full-page newspaper ads in August, 1959 and also conducted a promotion where the crowns used by the Miss Universe, Miss U.S.A., and Miss America pageants respectively were displayed in the sales office which also served as the model home. Several examples of the print advertising as well as images of the crowns and models are included. Other photos include interior and exterior shots of model homes. The staged internal shots show couples enjoying dinner and a child sitting in the living room with her father. There are three photos of artist renderings of homes along with floor plans. The marketing made a big deal of "The ManorVac", a built-in vacuum cleaner, and several of the larger photos feature a model amazed at the modern wonder of a cleaning machine attached to her home. Ephemera consists mostly of newspaper advertisements but also includes four copies of a double sided company flier and four copies of a brochure.An interesting look at an imaginitive real estate promotion in California at the end of the 1950s, which seems to rely laregely on the ease of vacuuming!

        Pura Tessin. Aquarell.

       1959. Monogrammiert in Aquarell. Signiert, datiert und bezeichnet \"Friedrich Gotsch 1959 / - Pura Tessin - Aquarell\". Auf festerem Velin. 70 x 45 cm (Blattgröße). Die farbfrische, lichtdurchflutete Straßenszene ist mit breitem Pinsel gemalt. Zwei weibliche Figuren, die wohl eine Last auf den Schultern tragen, führen im Vordergrund in das Bild hinein und strukturieren das Bild und bilden einen Bezugspunkt zur Architektur. - 1920 beginnt F. K. Gotsch ein Studium an der Sächsische Akademie der Künste Dresden und wird ein Meisterschüler von Oskar Kokoschka. Hier hat er Kontakt mit Hilde Goldschmidt und Hans Meyboden. Zu Studienaufenthalten hält er sich in New York, Paris, Italien und Südfrankreich, München und Berlin auf. Bei einem Luftangriff während des Zweiten Weltkriegs wurde sein Berliner Atelier und fast sein komplettes Werk zerstört. Nachdem Gotsch in den ersten Nachkriegsjahren vorrangig kulturpolitisch tätig ist, konzentriert er sich ab 1951 wieder vollständig auf seine künstlerische Arbeit. Nach einer Phase intensiver Auseinandersetzung mit dem Kubismus Picassos und des Experimentierens mit abstrakten Darstellungsformen entwickelt der Künstler den für sein weiteres Werk typischen \"späten Expressionismus\". Als einer der wenigen gegenständlich malenden Künstler seiner Generation kann sich Gotsch schon zu Lebzeiten öffentlicher Anerkennung erfreuen. - Im Außenrand unbedeutende Knickspur.

        Some Like It Hot" - Signed Reproduction Poster Photograph

      - Reproduction photograph of the poster for the iconic 1959 comedy, hand signed by its two stars, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, and by its director, Billy Wilder. Marilyn Monroe is shown playing the ukulele in a rather impractical position, flanked by her adoring "bosom companions" in drag. Glossy print with slightly irregular margins, otherwise in very fine condition with excellent bold signatures. 10 x 8 inches (25.3 x 20 cm).Some Like It Hot is considered to be one of the greatest film comedies of all time and was voted as the top comedy film by the American Film Institute on their list on AFI's 100 Years. 100 Laughs poll in 2000. The film is also notable for featuring cross dressing, and for playing with the idea of homosexuality, which led to it being produced without approval from the Motion Picture Production Code. The code had been gradually weakening in its scope during the early 1950s, due to increasing societal tolerance for previously taboo topics in film, but it was still officially enforced. The overwhelming success of Some Like It Hot was a final nail in the coffin for the Hays Code.

Original glazed pictorial boards, pictorial endpapers, preserved in repeat dustwrapper; pp. [56]; with vibrant coloured illustrations on every page; externally a near fine copy with tiny bruising to heel of spine and shelf-rubbing to lower boards, internally very good, clean, and sound throughout, without inscription, and with only an insignificant, and very pale, splash mark to one corner, protected by an excellent example of the original dustwrapper with two or three tiny nicks to spine ends with short archival tabs to strengthen to the reverse and a couple negligible creases to lower panel adjacent to spine; very scarce in this condition in the dustwrapper. First edition, first issue. This is the first Dr. Seuss title to be printed wholly in full colour. This copy displaying all the relevant points: with the 295/295 code to front flap; not listing any subsequent titles to flap of lower leaf; with the list of earlier titles to the lower flap ending in Yertle The Turtle and The Cat In The Hat Comes Back; and, importantly, with the 6 small white dots to the pale blue background on the "Today is your birthday" page.
