        62 PSAUMES ET VERSETS DE LA BIBLE [with additional original color pencil drawing laid in]

      [Châtenay-Malabry (Seine) ]; Lefort, 1960. Folding Case. Large Folio. Sixty-two illustrated plates. 44 cm. Nr 289 of a deluxe edition of 2000 copies. First edition. With additional original full-size drawing in 3 colors, with colored pencil, of doves and flowers, with inscription in Hebrew and signed. Housed in original folding-case, loose as issued, original colored pictorial stiff wrappers. Title translates as: ?62 Psalms and Verses of the Bible. ? In French. Preface by Jules Romains. ?The artist Benn was a renowned Jewish painter who drew inspiration from the Bible and expressed his spiritual connection to it in a body of self-contained and highly integrated work, which was published under the title ?62 Psaumes et versets de la Bible. ? When the Nazis entered Paris, Benn?s worst premonitions were realized. He was rounded up together with other East European Jews and interned in a holding camp, whose inmates were ultimately destined for a concentration camp in Germany. He was held in that camp for a month, and during that time he sketched the faces of his co-internees and their surroundings. He fell into a deep depression, lost weight, and would probably have died had it not been for the efforts of his wife and friends who managed to smuggle him out of the camp. Arrangements were made to hide the couple in the basement of an apartment house in Paris. Benn and his wife remained there in hiding for the duration of the war. During his twenty six months of confinement, Benn completed a series of sixty two drawings, based on selected psalms and verses of the Bible. The remarkable feature of this body of work is that it represents a radical departure in style from of his other work, and that style, while continuing to evolve after the war, remained exclusively associated with biblical themes. He continued to use biblical themes as subject matter (e. G. , Song of Songs) , and this particular style sets these works quite apart from the other figurative and representational work he did simultaneously. The drawings and the canvasses were critically acclaimed, and the artist was urged to make the works more accessible. In order to accommodate the demand for his biblically inspired work Benn agreed to have the sixty two drawings and paintings reproduced in the form of an album, which was published in 1960 under the title, ?62 Psaumes et Versets de la Bible. ? The publication was issued in a limited edition of 2, 000 copies. The album was prefaced by the French writer Jules Roman, of the Academie Française. ? (Art of Benn) Subjects: Bible. O.T. - Illustrations. Bible. O.T. Psalms - Illustrations. Bible. A.T. - Illustrations. OCLC lists 14 copies. Folding case has tear at crown of spine, otherwise Very Good. Illustrated plates are colorful, bright and clean. Very Good condition. (SPEC-36-10)

        The Subterraneans (Original Film Poster)

      Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], Los Angeles 1960 - Original one sheet poster for the 1960 film. From one perspective, a fairly one-dimensional representation--perhaps even a caricature--of Beat culture, but culturally fascinating in that it was made at the height of the Beat era, with A-list talent by a top studio, and, until Walter Salles' 2012 adaptation of "On the Road," was the only feature-length film ever made from a Kerouac novel. Kerouac was paid $15,000 by MGM for the rights to the book, and bought his first home with the proceeds, on Long Island. A film that rarely screened today, and has never been available on any kind of home viewing format. While its perspective on the actual Beat scene may be skewed or wildly misinterpreted, it is nonetheless important as an interpretation of Kerouac's world from the outside looking in. 27 x 41 inches (105 x 89 cm), folded. Near Fine.

        Association Copies: Jerome Rothenberg to Clayton Eshleman

      1960-2006. Approximately 40 Rothenberg items from Eshleman's library spanning the years 1960 -- Rothenberg's first book -- to 2006. Most of the items are signed or inscribed by Rothenberg to the poet Clayton Eshleman. The group includes Rothenberg's first book inscribed to Eshleman in the year of publication, and documents their ongoing relationship from a time prior to the publication of Eshleman's own first books (Mexico and North and Pablo Neruda, Residence on Earth, each 1962) and forward over the course of nearly five decades. The two poets shared not only a friendship but a strong interest in ethnopoetics, something that sets both apart from many of the other poets of their generation and links these two quite closely. Rothenberg's books were part of what Eshleman called his "core library," and the poetic and personal connections represented by these copies provide an important piece of the poetic history of their era. As follows: * White Sun/Black Sun. (NY): Hawk's Well Press (1960). Rothenberg's first book, a collection of poems, published by a press that he founded to issue work by avant garde poets. Inscribed by Rothenberg in October, 1960 to Clayton Eshleman, "with warm best wishes." A nice association copy, linking the two poets from an early date, two years prior to Eshleman's own first book being published. In wrappers. * Sightings/Lunes. (NY): (Hawk's Well Press)(1964). Inscribed by Rothenberg in 1965 to Clay[ton Eshleman] and Barbara: "these poems for light and all." The glue has failed on the tipped-in drawings by Amy Mendelson; the drawings are now laid in; otherwise near fine in wrappers. Also laid in is a small broadside printing "Sightings" by Rothenberg, with "Lunes" by Robert Kelly on the verso. In addition there is an announcement of the 1965 birth of Rothenberg's son. * Ritual: A Book of Primitive Rites and Events. NY: A Great Bear Pamphlet, 1966.

        Production of commodites by means of commodities; Prelude to a critique of economic theory.

      Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1960 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered gilt, with the dust jacket. A little fading to board edges; an excellent copy in the slightly faded jacket with some nicks and chips to extremities. First edition of Sraffa's attempt to perfect classical economics' theory of value, as originally developed by David Ricardo and others. "Production of Commodities is a peculiarly sparse book. The argument has been pared to the absolute minimum to sustain the propositions which Sraffa wishes to advance. Yet, the precision and logical elegance of the argument are 'the work of an artist working in the medium of economic theory' (P. Newman)" (John Eatwell in The New Palgrave).

        Personal Badges for the 1960 Democratic National Convention; with Typed Letter Signed

      Los Angeles: np. FIRST EDITION. Fine. ELEANOR ROOSEVELT'S OFFICIAL CONVENTION BADGES FOR THE 1960 DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION. With a signed letter from Roosevelt to her good friend Mayris Chaney concerning her arrival at the convention. TWO BADGES: Decorative medals held with red-white-and-blue ribbon, the first reading "Mrs. F.D. Roosevelt / Former First Lady" on two metal bars, between beautiful engraved patriotic designs at the top and bottom surrounding the text "United States of America" and "1960 Democratic National Convention Los Angeles"; the second badge, again with the beautiful patriotic emblems, reads "Honored Guest". The medals include the original box.On July 10, 1960, the day before the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles, Eleanor Roosevelt refused to ride in a limousine to a reception, preferring to walk half a mile with reporters. The absence of former President Harry Truman underscored the Democrats' break with the past and cast a warm light on former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, who attended the convention to support the faltering and ultimately doomed Presidential Campaign of Adlai Stevenson. In speaking for Stevenson, Roosevelt questioned whether Kennedy's Catholic faith might cost him votes and said he didn't have the support of African Americans. Instead, she backed a Stevenson-Kennedy political ticket. This trip in 1960 proved to be the final Political Convention which she attended. After the election, Roosevelt chaired the John F. Kennedy administration's ground-breaking Committee which helped start Second-wave Feminism, the "Presidential Commission on the Status of Women." In 1999, she was ranked in the top ten of Gallup's List of Most Widely Admired People of the 20th Century.Her letter to Mayris Chaney (included in this collection) is typed on Roosevelt's personal New York City letterhead and reads in full:June 24, 1960 Dearest Tiny:I have had another change in plans and will arrive the night of July 10th getting in at 7:30 p.m. but you need not meet me as Frankie is having a car and driver at my disposal.Let's hope this is the last change! Anyhow, it means I will be able to come to you sooner than I expected and this is a joy. With much love, Devotedly, [signed] E.R.[handwritten] Frankie is meeting me & - if avail we can come for you later after dinner.Mayris Chaney (Mrs. Hershey Martin), was a renowned dancer who worked with Roosevelt in the Office of Civilian Defense, and one of her closet friends for almost twenty years. Their friendship began in the early thirties after Roosevelt's bodyguard Earl Miller introduced his charge to Chaney and her dance partner Eddie Fox. Roosevelt felt so at ease with Martin that she quickly nicknamed her "Tiny," included her in the close circle of friends with whom she could relax in private (at Val-Kill and the White House, in their homes, and on vacation) and served as Godmother to Martin's daughter Anna Eleanor (named after Eleanor Roosevelt). The letter includes the original mailing envelope.

        Die Sch?tzentaler und Sch?tzenmedaillen der Schweiz. Die Sch?tzenjetons der Schweiz, 2 B?nde: 2 Bde [Gebundene Ausgabe] J?rg Richter (Autor)

      Battenberg Gietl, 1960. Band 1: Die Sch?tzentaler und Sch?tzenmedaillen der Schweiz: Dieses Buch befasst sich sowohl mit der Geschichte als auch den historischen Hintergr?nden der Sch?tzentaler und Sch?tzenmedaillen der Schweiz. ?ber 2100 Taler und Medaillen von den Anf?ngen im fr?hen 17. Jahrhundert bis ins Jahr 1960 sind beschrieben und weitgehend abgebildet. ?ber die Seltenheit und den Wert jedes einzelnen St?cks sind Angaben in zwei Erhaltungsgraden eingearbeitet. Mehrere hundert Medaillen werden in diesem Katalog zum ersten Mal abgebildet. Pr?gungen, die um die Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts entstanden, bis hin zu prachtvollen gestalteten Medaillen aus der Zeit des Jugendstils z?hlen zu den H?hepunkten dieses hochwertigen Bandes. ?u?erst seltene St?cke, oftmals sogar Unikate, insbesondere aus den Anfangsjahren der Sch?tzenfeste sind zu sehen. Gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts wurden bei bedeutenden Anl?ssen oftmals verschiedene Gedenkpr?gungen zum selben Sch?tzenfest herausgegeben. Diese wundervoll gestalteten Zeitzeugen sind noch heute Ausdruck dieser Sportart und ihres patriotischen Gedankengutes. Mit dieser Publikation wird dem numismatisch interessierten Leser ein neues Standardwerk vorgelegt. Aber auch Kunstliebhabern und historisch Interessierten wird dieses Buch eine Fundgrube zur Geschichte der Sch?tzentaler und Sch?tzenmedaillen der Schweiz. Band 2: Die Sch?tzenjetons der Schweiz: Das vorliegende Buch ?ber die Sch?tzenjetons der Schweiz erfasst erstmalig in dieser Form alle bis heute bekannten Pr?gungen seit den Anf?ngen im 17. Jahrhundert. Es werden weit ?ber 700 Jetons beschrieben und abgebildet. Bewertungen in zwei Erhaltungskategorien und Angaben zur Seltenheit geben Hinweise ?ber den Wert eines jeden St?ckes. Einige Dutzend Jetons werden ?berhaupt zum ersten Mal abgebildet. Die Jetons, nicht immer in Metall gepr?gt, sondern oftmals auch auf Papier gedruckt, belegen Jahrzehnte einer ?u?erst aktiven ?ra des Schie?- und Sch?tzenwesens in der Schweiz. Auf Sch?tzenfesten, aber auch bei kleineren Anl?ssen wurden die im Wesentlichen dem Munitionserwerb dienenden Jetons rege verwendet. Auf eine Verwendung an mehreren Sch?tzenfesten l?sst die oftmals fehlende Jahresangabe auf den Pr?gungen schlie?en. Die Mitte des 19. bis zum Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts stellt die Hochzeit der Verwendung von Jetons dar. Eine gro?e Anzahl Jetons, inbesondere derjenigen aus Karton oder Papier, sind sehr selten. Als eigentlicher Geldersatz nur an den Sch?tzenfesten verwendet, wurden sie damals noch nicht im gro?en Stil gesammelt. So verwundert es nicht weiter, dass von vielen St?cken oftmals nur noch ein bis zwei Belegexemplare die Zeit ?berdauert haben. Hunderte von Abbildungen, gr??tenteils in Farbe, sind Zeugen einer hochwertigen Pr?getechnik. Stilistisch interessant und mit k?nstlerisch ansprechenden Motiven versehen wurden selbst diese kleinen Jetons hergestellt. Numismatikern, Sammlern von Sch?tzenmemorabilia und historisch interessierten Lesern wird dieses neue Standardwerk zahlreiche hilfreiche Hinweise zur Geschichte der Sch?tzenjetons liefern. Zwei B?nde, nur zusammen erh?ltlich! Autor: Die Faszination, die von M?nzen und Medaillen ausgeht, hat J?rg Richter schon seit seiner fr?hesten Jugend erlebt. 1985 w?hlte er den Beruf des Numismatikers und ist seitdem in der gl?cklichen Lage, Hobby und Beruf zu vereinen. Buchver?ffentlichungen und Artikel in Fachzeitschriften sind Zeugen seiner gro?en Leidenschaft und Begeisterung f?r die Numismatik. Mit dem Vreneli-Preis im Jahre 2005 wurde sein publizistisches Schaffen auf eine besondere Weise geehrt. An ihm, dem Leiter der Abteilung Gold & Numismatik der USB AG, Basel, kommt man nicht vorbei, wenn man sich mit der Numismatik der Schweiz besch?ftigt. Er ist Garant f?r hochwertige Fachliteratur, die in jedem B?cherregal stehen muss.

        The young pianist. Series of 12 gelatin silverprints

      Rottau am Chiemsee, Hilmar Pabel/ ABC Presse, ca. 1960. Original photographs, gelatin silverprints, ca. 29 x 21 cm & 21 x 29 cm. - Documentary seires following the day of a young pianist, at home, at school, with friends, following classes, exercising, training, performing and sleeping. Hilmar Pabel (* 17. September 1910 in Rawitsch/Provinz Posen; - 6. November 2000 in Rimsting am Chiemsee war ein deutscher Journalist, Fotograf und Initiator der Kindersuchaktion des Roten Kreuzes nach dem 2. Weltkrieg. Trotz seiner mehr oder weniger freiwilligen Mitwirkung an der Kriegspropaganda des Nationalsozialismus kann er als einer der wichtigsten deutschen Vertreter einer humanistisch-aufklärerischen Pressefotografie gelten. - Mit dem Fotografieren begann er 1924 im Alter von vierzehn Jahren. 1929 lernte er Fotografie an der Agfa Fotoschule in Berlin. Von 1930 bis 1935 studierte er Germanistik, Philosophie und Zeitungswissenschaft an der Friedrich-Wilhelm-Universität Berlin bei Prof. Emil Dovifat. Anschließend war er freiberuflich für verschiedene Zeitungen tätig, so etwa für die "Illustrirte Zeitung". - Im 2. Weltkrieg arbeitete er als Kriegskorrespondent und Fotograf einer Propagandakompanie. Unter anderem fotografierte er im Ghetto von Lublin. Diese Aufnahmen wurden - mit antisemitischen Bildunterschriften versehen - auch veröffentlicht. Am Ende des Krieges war er für kurze Zeit in Kriegsgefangenschaft. - 1945 arbeitete er für das Bayerische Rote Kreuz und war Mitinitiator von dessen Kindersuchaktion. In diesem Rahmen fotografierte er selbst über 2000 Kinder, um deren Eltern oder Verwandte ausfindig zu machen. 1947 entstand seine Bildfolge "Heimkehrer", für die er einen Kriegsheimkehrer mit der Kamera begleitete. Später arbeitete Pabel für die Illustrierte "Quick", für die er in die DDR, nach Indonesien, Japan, China, Taiwan, in zahlreiche afrikanische Staaten, in die UdSSR und in die USA reiste. 1961 erhielt er den Kulturpreis der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Photographie. 1961-1970 war er als Fotograf beim "Stern" beschäftigt. Für das Magazin schuf er eindringliche Bildserien im Vietnamkrieg ("Die kleine Orchidee", 1964 und "Thuan darf noch einmal leben", 1968) und beim sowjetischen Einmarsch in der Tschechoslowakei. Nach 1970 arbeitete er erneut als freier Fotograf. - Die Reitlehrerin, Kinder- und Pferdebuchautorin Andrea Pabel ist seine Tochter. KEYWORDS:germany/photo
