        The Birthday Party - SIGNED, DATED AND INSCRIBED BY PINTER TO HIS LEADING LADY

      Encore, 1959. Soft cover. Very Good. An exceptionally rare first edition of Pinter's second full-length play, published in limited numbers by Encore Publishing in 1959. This edition is signed on the title page by the author, with a personal dedication to the actress Margery Withers - the second actress to play the part of 'Meg' (and the first to do so on television). - - - - - - - - - - The Birthday Party was first staged in the spring of 1958 at the Arts Theatre in Cambridge, before playing in Oxford and Wolverhampton. It opened in London, at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, in May 1958 and infamously closed after only eight performances. It's failure is said to have caused Pinter to consider ending his ambition to be a playwright but subsequent revivals have cemented it's status as a classic. In 1959 the play received it's first such re-evalution when it was performed by the Tavistock Repertory Company at the Tower Theatre in Islington, London. This production provides the cover photograph of Encore's first edition. Pinter, who lived locally, saw the production and attended some rehearsals (although he was not directly involved in the production). The company, run by non-professionals, were the first to stage the play after it's 1958 opening. This copy of the book belonged to Margery Withers, the actress who played 'Meg' in the Tavistock Rep Company production. It is personally signed by Pinter with the following message: "To Margery, I shall always remember your wonderful performance as Meg. You were the one and only belle of the ball. Love Harold." It is dated, by Pinter, 'Dec. 59'. The quote 'the one and only belle of the ball' is taken directly from the play itself. - - - - - - - - - - In 1960 Margery was offered to reprise the role in the world's first television production of the play. At the time she was working at the BBC and could not get permission to appear in the ITV drama - emboldened and encouraged by Pinter she quit her job to become an actress full-time. She made her professional debut in the ITV television version of this play and subsequently appeared in numerous British television series and films over the next 40 years, including parts in Coronation Street, Z Cars, The Bill, Casualty and Mike Leigh's Secrets and Lies. She died in 1999. Harold Pinter went on to become one of Britain's most celebrated playwrights, screenwriters, actors, poets and theatre directors. In 2005 he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. He died in 2008. Condition: This was Margery's personal copy and has suffered a little wear to the edges. The front page with the signature has been secured to the front cover with sellotape at some point. This doesn't impinge on the signature and with a bit of careful restoration a better job could be made of this. There's also a small corner of the title page missing, but otherwise the book is complete with no other lose pages and no major defects. The binding now is tight. Pinter signatures from the 1950s are also incredibly rare. This is a first edition of Pinter's first published play, signed and dated by the author with a personal message to his leading lady.

        HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL-1959-FRENCH GRANDE-47X63-AMAZING ORIGINAL POSTER-WILD! VF+

      1959 - This is a rare French poster from one of the absolute greatest horror films of all time! Many argue this is the best art of any poster version. Noted French artist, Roger Soubie, took an interesting and different approach than his American artist counterparts. The U.S. posters all show the skeleton dangling the lifeless beauty from his noose. Mr. Soubie (in the true French spirit) shows the skeleton chasing the damsel. It's an exciting and evocative image, and a great counterpart to other posters on the title. Size is an impressive 47x63! Ideal for display! This is an original poster with no restoration. Has a couple small pieces of tape on back. Condition is C8/9 with no missing pieces or tears, only tiny splits near very edge of folds. Check the image! Colors are amazingly vivid. A better condition unrestored copy may not exist. Condition: VF+

His sparing use of words qualifies him as one of the founders of literary minimalism. .

Original Photograph 9 1/2" X 7 1/2" Of Jfk At A Restaurant Or Night Club With Frank Longo [ Founder Of Longo Toyota, Which Became The Largest Auto Dealership In The World], Circa 1959/1960. This Is A Much Thinner Kennedy Than We Are Used To Seeing. Kennedy And Longo Are At A Small Cocktail Or Dinner Table, Perhaps At A Banquet Or Night Club. Inscribed, Signed And Dated 6-1-1962 As By Jfk & Gjc (?), But This Is Not Kennedy's Usual Signature, And An Authoritative Source Confirms That Kennedy Was Never This Thin After He Was President, So The Photograph Itself Probably Dates From His California Campaign Circa 1959 / 1960. The Kennedy Archives Have No Record Of The Photograph Being Sent In For A Signature Around That Date. It Was Probably Signed By "Gjc" For The President. The Photo Is From Personal Collection Of A Longo Family Member.

Ausarbeitungen und Entwürfe zum 2.Band der Einleitung in die Geisteswissenschaften (ca. 1970-1895) hrsg. von H. Johach u. F. Rodi. --- Wilhelm Dilthey (* 19. November 1833 in Biebrich 1. Oktober 1911 in Seis am Schlern, Südtirol) war ein deutscher Theologe, Gymnasiallehrer und Philosoph. Entgegen dem zu seiner Zeit stark verbreiteten Naturalismus entwickelte Dilthey ein lebensphilosophisches Fundament, welches das menschliche Leben und die Formen seines Ausdrucks nicht mehr nur nach Naturgesetzlichkeiten erklärte, sondern vielmehr die Eigengesetzlichkeit des menschlichen Geisteslebens zu verstehen suchte. Dilthey baute diesen Ansatz wissenschaftstheoretisch aus und formulierte in Abgrenzung zu den Naturwissenschaften eine Theorie der Geisteswissenschaften, als deren Begründer er gilt. Als deren Methode entwickelte er die Hermeneutik und die verstehende Psychologie in wesentlicher Weise weiter. Zur empirischen Anwendung brachte Dilthey seine Methoden in der Weltanschauungslehre, einem Deutungsschema für die seiner Meinung nach gescheiterten Systeme der Metaphysik. In ihr versuchte Dilthey aufzuzeigen, wie alle unterschiedlichen und sich widersprechenden metaphysischen Systeme ihren gemeinsamen Ursprung im Lebenszusammenhang des Menschen haben, zugleich kategorisierte er die historischen Ansätze nach verschiedenen "Typen der Weltanschauung". Der Naturalismus hat als Strömung seit dem 17. Jahrhundert dazu geführt, dass ein mechanisch-kausales Naturverständnis auch auf das Innenleben des Menschen übertragen wurde, also seinem Geistes- und Gefühlsvermögen dieselben kausalen Gesetze unterstellt wurden, wie man sie bei der physikalischen Beschreibung der Natur vorfand. Kant hat dieses Problem zu lösen versucht, indem er die physikalische Natur als Naturbeschreibung durch die reine Vernunft auffasste. Diese Unterscheidung setzt eine Trennung von Ding an sich und Erscheinungen voraus. Dabei sind es laut Kant nur die Erscheinungen, die der Verstand in der Anschauung erfassen kann und denen sich Kausalität zusprechen lässt. Ob die Kausalität jedoch auch dem hinter der Erscheinung liegenden Ding an sich zukommt, bleibt ungewiss. Diese Erklärung hat allerdings nicht dazu geführt, dass die Naturwissenschaft ihre Ergebnisse als Konstruktionsmittel und hypothetische Erkenntnisse wertete. Vielmehr fand die Auffassung, dass die Naturwissenschaften ihren Gegenstand unmittelbar erklären könnten, einen ersten Höhepunkt im Positivismus und Naturalismus, wie ihn Comte und Mill vertraten. Hier ergab sich für Dilthey das offensichtliche Problem, dass, wenn alle Vernunftprozesse kausal determiniert sind, auch die positivistische und naturalistische Auffassung des Menschen selbst determiniert ist. Damit hebt sich jedoch der Anspruch auf Gewissheit unter verschiedenen alternativen Auffassungen selbst auf. Diltheys Lösung besteht in der Unterscheidung von Natur- und Geisteswissenschaften, welche zugleich die Autonomie und Freiheit des Vernunftwesens Mensch wiederherstellen soll: Statt in den Naturzusammenhang band Dilthey den Menschen dabei in den Geschichts- und Kulturzusammenhang ein, innerhalb dessen sich seine geistige Spontaneität zeigt und ausbildet. So wie Kant mit seiner Kritik der reinen Vernunft die erkenntnistheoretische Grundlage der Naturwissenschaften zu erklären versuchte, bemühte sich Dilthey in seinem lebenslangen Projekt einer Kritik der historischen Vernunft, die Grundlage für die von ihm so benannten Geisteswissenschaften zu legen. Der Titel einer historischen Vernunft zeigt dabei schon Diltheys Kritik an Kant. So ist bei Dilthey die Vernunft keine überzeitliche und unveränderliche Größe eines individuellen Subjekts, sondern hat ihre Ausprägung im Verlauf der Geschichte erfahren und wird dadurch konstatiert. In sie fließen also auch die geschichtlich gewordenen Handlungen und Praktiken des Kulturwesens Mensch mit ein. Diltheys grundsätzlich geschichtliche Orientierung ging dabei auf J.G. Droysens geschichtsphilosophische Vorstellungen des Historismus zurück. Die Kritik der historischen Vernunft bezieht sich jedoch nicht nur auf Kant, sondern erhebt Anspruch darauf, die gesamte Geschichte der Metaphysik zu betrachten. In Anlehnung an Hegels Phänomenologie des Geistes bezeichnete Dilthey sein Programm auch als Phänomenologie der Metaphysik. Anders als bei Hegel führte er den geschichtlichen Prozess nicht zu einem metaphysischen System des absoluten Wissens zusammen, welches schließlich absolute Gewissheit bieten sollte. Vielmehr nimmt seine Betrachtung den umgekehrten Weg, nämlich zu zeigen, wie sich eine Weltanschauung erst durch die vielen kleinen Gewissheiten ausprägt, die in der unmittelbaren Gewissheit des Erlebnisses und des Lebens selbst wurzeln. Dieses dient ihm dann auch als Fundament zur Begründung der Geisteswissenschaften. Ihr Ziel ist ein "Verstehen des Lebens und der Geschichte".

Harsanyi” (Hazewinkel, Encyclopedia of Mathematics, 237-38). “In 1956, Harsanyi showed that Nash's bargaining solution could be derived from an earlier theory of bargaining by the Danish economist Frederik Zeuthen (1930). Then in 1959 [the present paper] and 1963 John Harsanyi published papers to show how the Nash bargaining solution and the Shapley value could be unified into one general solution concept that could be applied to any cooperative game with complete information” (Roger Myerson, “Learning Game Theory from John Harsanyi,” August 31, 2000). Other contributors to this volume include Aumann, Kalisch, von Neumann (“On the Theory of Games of Strategy,” 13-42), Shapley, Shubik, et al. Just a bit of mild rubbing and toning to paper wrappers. Interior fine. An excellent copy, with Nobel Prize-winning provenance.

        Ready, Aim, Robot! - Original Typed Manuscript - Amazing Stories July, 1959

      1959 - Here is the original manuscript of 39 8.5 by 11-inch sheets originally published in the July, 1959 issue of Amazing Stories. Complete manuscript with of handwritten notes throughout, and stamped as received in March 1959. For fun, Garrett has typed "For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway" at the beginning of the piece. This has been heavily crossed out and the correct title written in pencil by a probably frustrated editor. Also included with the manuscript is a set of uncut, folded galley sheets of the printed story. These sheets could be pulled, prior to being trimmed, for in-house review and editing. The two items together offer a look at the differences between the author's original idea and the printed story. Also included is a handwritten note on Ziff-Davis note paper advising an artist on how to illustrate the story. All of this included in original manila folder. Like many writers working in the pulp field, Garrett was amazingly prolific and wrote under a variety of pseudonyms for more than three decades. He had stories published in all of the major pulps. He was known for his sense of humor, which is evident in this piece, and for his accessibility to fans. These traits helped make him a fan favorite at conventions for many years.

Bookplate on the front pastedown, else fine without the unprinted glassine dustwrapper. One of 500 numbered copies Signed by both Lax and Antonucci. Lax's first and most famous book, a meditation on the Creation, was described in the New York Times as "perhaps the greatest English language poem of this century." A close friend of Thomas Merton's, their correspondence was published. Occasionally described as a hermit, Lax did little to advance his literary career. His sparing use of words qualifies him as one of the founders of literary minimalism. .
