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

        Can-Can (Original double weight photograph of Frank Sinatra, Shirley MacLaine, and Maurice Chevalier from the 1960 film)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1960. Vintage double weight, borderless photograph of Frank Sinatra, Shirley MacLaine, and Maurice Chevalier from the 1960 musical film, based on the 1953 Broadway musical by Abe Burrows with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. Shot, struck, and mounted by the film's still photographer, Bob Willoughby, with his ASMP rubber stamp and holograph notations on the verso. Full provenance available. After studying with Saul Bass at the Kann Institute of Art in Los Angeles, Willoughby began working as a photographer for magazines such as "Life," "Look," and "Harper's Bazaar" in the late 1940s. It was while on assignment covering Judy Garland in a "A Star is Born" that Willoughby's ability to capture his subjects' spontaneity, humor, and vulnerability, resulting in images that were far different from more traditional film stills, came to Hollywood's attention and earned him his first "Life" magazine cover. Willoughby spent the next 20-plus years working as a set photographer for every major studio, documenting some of most important films of the era and creating intimate portraits of some of Hollywood's greatest celebrities. Technically and stylistically innovative, Willoughby built the first remote radio-controlled cameras used on film sets, pioneered the use of the "silent blimp" for 35mm cameras, and created brackets to mount his cameras directly over the movie cameras to capture the same images. Willoughby moved his family to County Cork, Ireland in 1972, working on only a handful of films through the late 1970s and early 1980s, though he would continue to photograph, exhibit, and publish books for the remainder of his life. The stills in this collection were given by Willoughby to friends in Kilbrittain, Ireland just prior to his move to Vence, France in 1989, where he would remain until his death in 2009. Perhaps more than any other photographer, Willoughby is responsible for creating the the look of mid-century celebrity and moviemaking in the popular imagination, with his images printed in magazines literally every week of his career. But beyond being prolific, Willoughby's legacy rests with his ability capture the essence of the actors he photographed, as well as the films with which those photographs were associated. As Sydney Pollack said in his introduction to Willoughby's autobiography, "Sometimes a filmmaker gets a look at a photograph taken on his own set and sees the 'soul' of his film in one still photograph. It's rare, but it happens. It happened to me in 1969, the first time I looked at the work of Bob Willoughby during the filming of "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" Willoughby's photographs are in the permanent collections of ten museums, including The National Portrait Galleries in Washington, DC and London, the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Tate Modern. 9.5 x 6.5 inches (24 x 17 cm). Near Fine.

        Lettre tapuscrite à Sartre

      1960. - 2 décembre 1960, 26,7x20,9cm, 5 feuillets in - 4. - Lettera dattiloscritto di 3 pagine (più una seconda versione corretta della prima pagina), e corretto in penna rossa su un progetto di trasformazione di una rivista e una "Dichiarazione". attaccato due pagine di un piano dal titolo: "Il mondo in questione (corso nel mondo)", che è forse legati alla revisione citato da Blanchot nella sua lettera. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] (Brouillon tapuscrit de lettre à Jean - Paul Sartre, avec des corrections autographes et avec une seconde version de la première page, et tapuscrit avec corrections autographes de « Le monde en question (Cours du monde) » (projet pour La Revue internationale) Ensemble de cinq feuillets tapuscrits, rectos seuls (à l'exception d'un feuillet recto - verso), avec des corrections au stylo bille rouge et au stylo bille noir de la main de Maurice Blanchot.   Cet important ensemble témoigne des échanges entre Maurice Blanchot et Jean - Paul Sartre autour de la fameuse « Déclaration sur le droit à l'insoumission dans la guerre d'Algérie » et du projet de publication qui en découla, La Revue internationale. Connue sous le nom de « Manifeste des 121 », cette déclaration, signée par de nombreux intellectuels et artistes et publiée le 6 septembre 1960, avait été rédigée par Dionys Mascolo et Jean Schuster, aidés de Maurice Blanchot, dans la perspective du procès du réseau Jeanson (groupe de militants français soutenant le FNL) et dans le but d'informer l'opinion du mouvement de contestation contre la guerre d'Algérie et ses dérives anti - démocratiques. Parmi les signataires figurait, bien sûr, Sartre. Le manifeste avait fait prendre conscience à nombre de personnalités du poids qu'elles pouvaient exercer dans le débat public, voire dans le cours de l'Histoire. C'est dans ce contexte qu'à l'automne 1960, Maurice Blanchot, Dionys Mascolo et Elio Vittorini décident de créer une revue non pas littéraire mais critique, dont le dessein serait de poursuivre cette action. Ils sollicitent l'aide de Jean - Paul Sartre, dont l'extraordinaire aura saurait profiter favorablement à la publication. Dans sa lettre à Sartre, Blanchot tente de convaincre le philosophe de se joindre au projet : « Vous m'avez rappelé ce que j'ai dû dire quelquefois et que j'ai toujours intimement pensé : que la Déclaration ne trouverait son vrai sens que si elle était le commencement de quelque chose. [...] Je voudrais dire mon sentiment propre : je crois que si nous voulons représenter, comme il faut, sans équivoque, le changement dont nous avons les uns et les autres le pressentiment, si nous voulons le rendre plus réel et l'approfondir, dans sa présence mouvante, c'est seulement à partir d'un organe nouveau que nous pourrons le faire. A partir de là, si l'on voit Sartre, et d'autres avec lui parmi les 121, décider de s'exprimer en cette forme choisie délibérément comme nouvelle, chacun [...] comprendra que vraiment nous entrons dans une nouvelle phase et que quelque chose de décisif a lieu qui cherche à s'affirmer. » Mais Sartre refusera de s'engager dans la revue. Cependant, au cours des six premiers mois de l'année 1961, Blanchot se consacre corps et âme au projet, dans l'espoir qu'il se réalise. Le tapuscrit que l'on joint, « Le monde en question (Cours du monde) », révèle le sommaire qu'il imagine pour le premier numéro : des textes sur la déstalinisation, la situation de la presse allemande, le cloisonnement intellectuel en France et en Italie, la grève de la faim ou encore le mur de Berlin et l'utopie. La revue ne verra jamais le jour, au grand désespoir de Blanchot qui s'enthousiasmait profondément à l'idée d'une écriture collective et internationale. La version définitive de la lettre de Blanchot à Sartre sera publiée dans le dossier consacré par la revue Lignes au projet de La Revue internationale (n° 11, septembre 1990).   Important témoignage sur les suites que souhaite donner Blanchot avec l'aide de Sartre à la « Déclaration sur le droit à l'insoumission dans la guerre d'Algérie ».

        Autograph musical manuscript for an unidentified film. Signed "B. Kaper."

      1960. We have been unable to identify the film for which Kaper composed the present music, but the direction at the beginning, "F.I. after commercial," indicates that the music was written for television, which limits the choices mostly to the two series Arrest and Trial (1963-1964) and The F.B.I. (1965-1974). The stage directions, mentioning the characters of "Joe" and "Shepard," and the header "M 31," may help to identify the exact episode.Kaper, a Polish-born American composer, was educated at the Warsaw Conservatory and was active as composer and pianist in Warsaw, Berlin, Vienna, London and Paris before settling in Hollywood and joining the staff of MGM in 1940... His best work dates from the 1960s: Mutiny on the Bounty (1962) and Lord Jim (1965) reveal a pronounced flair for musical depiction of the sea and tropical landscapes... Kaper's dramatic score for the science fiction film Them! (1954) is largely regarded as one of the classics of horror movie music of the period... After 28 years and more than 100 scores for MGM, Kaper, like many Hollywood composers in the mid-1960s, found film work declining as pop music became more prevalent. As a result he turned to composing for television." Christopher Palmer and Randall D. Larson in Grove Music Online.. Irregular format (352 x 305 mm). Five leaves of 12-stave onionskin paper with three pre-printed systems of four staves per page. Notated in lead pencil with timings in ink; pagination, signatures (one to head of each leaf), header "M 31," and other annotations in blue pencil; some corrections in red pencil. Undated. A working manuscript, consisting of 56 continuous measures in score intended to accompany 2 minutes and 30 seconds of film. Stage directions in pencil interspersed: "F. I. after commercial - Joe starts to sneak - Joe reacts - Joe starts, gets up - Joe grabs shephard's [!Shepard's] neck - Shepard breaks loose - J. hits Shepard - finds rifle not loaded - J. finds ammunitio[n] - L. Shot highway car."Some corners of ff.2-4 lacking, not affecting notation.

        Sammlung von mehr als 500 Original-Photographien eines Chefstewards auf verschiedenen Luxuslinern auf den Transatlantiklinien der United States Lines.

      Verschiedene Orte bzw. Schiffe, 1930er bis 1960er Jahre. - 6 Lederalben (qu.-folio) und lose Photographien (verschiedene Formate). Private Photosammlung des Schiffsstewards Hermann Muller, der zwischen den 1930er und 1960er Jahren - der Hochzeit der Luxusschiffahrt - auf den Passagierdampfern der Reederei United States Lines im Bordservice gearbeitet hatte und bis zum Chefsteward aufgestiegen war. - Die aus einer Postschiffahrtsgesellschaft hervorgegangene amerikanische Reederei United States Lines betrieb von 1929 bis 1969 eine Transatlantiklinie (New York-Bremerhaven und New York-London) für Luxus-Passagierdampfer, die tlw. mit ehemals deutschen, als Reparationszahlungen übernommenen Passagierschiffen (America, George Washington), später mit eigens für die Reederei gebauten Dampfern befahren wurde. Der berühmteste Dampfer des Unternehmens war die United States, das Flaggschiff der Reederei, die auf ihrer Jungfernfahrt 1952 (unter Kapitan H. Manning) das "Blaue Band" errungen hatte. Sie hält bis heute den Rekord für die schnellste Atlantikquerung eines Passagierschiffes in östlicher Richtung. - Hermann Muller fuhr unter anderem auf den Schiffen America, President Roosevelt, Leviathan, Manhattan, Washington und eben auch der United States. Als Chefsteward hatte er die Verantwortung für Küche, Vorratshaltung und Reinigung des Schiffs. Mullers große Umsicht und Einsatzbereitschaft für das persönliche Wohl der teils prominenten Passagiere sowie ein offensichtlich sympathisches Wesen machten ihn zum ersten Ansprechpartner und beliebten Mitglied der Bordcrew, wie zahlreiche herzliche und persönliche Widmungen auf den Photographien wie "Wishing you as always a Happy sailing thru life" bezeugen. Die Photographien (Formate zwischen 7 und 12 und 20 und 26 cm) stammen überwiegend von den Bordphotographen der Linie oder von privat und zeigen neben den Passagieren auch die Crew und das Küchenpersonal, Banketts, Silvester- und Geburtstagsfeiern, Bordhochzeiten, Seebestattung, seltene Details oder auch Gesamtaufnahmen der Passagierdampfer; daneben finden sich auch Familienphotos aus dem Privatleben von H. Muller. - Unter den Passagieren, die sich mit Photo und einigen Grußworten in der Sammlung verewigten, befinden sich viele berühmte Namen der funkelnden Welt des Films und des Jet Sets, des Sports und der Politik, darunter John Wayne, Burt Lancaster, Charlton Heston, Cary Grant, Bob Hope, Horst Buchholz, Edward Duke of Windsor mit seiner Frau Wallis Simpson, Harold Lloyd, Walt Disney, Charles Boyer, Donald Campbell, die Boxer Walter Neusel, Bob Olin und Erich Seelig, Dean Jagger, Joan Crawford, Cornel Wilde, Jean Wallace, James Cagney, den Bürgermeister von London Cuthbert Ackroyd, Corinne Calvet, Herbert Marshall, Salvador Dali, Harry Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Haile Selassie, Ludwig Erhard, Felix Graf von Luckner, Saud ibn Abd al-Aziz Al Saud u. v. m. - Photogr. tlw. gelöst, einzelne mit Randeinrissen, die Alben gering berieben. Insgesamt eine interessante und umfangreiche Sammlung von sehr guter Erhaltung.

        Whaling Journals of Schooner "Mystic" and Bark "Greyhound," Atlantic Ocean, 1910 - 1918. Miscellaneous Manuscript Notes, Photographs, Original Typescript of the Book, "Captain Joe," with Corrections by Author, and a Signed Copy of Captain Joe."

      Folio journal, about 300 pages of manuscript entries, plus nine pages of manuscript, five photographs, 314 pages of typescript, and a copy of the book "Captain Joe" NY. (1960) 271 pp. This is a wonderful assemblage documenting the latter days of the Atlantic sperm whale fishery. The two whaling journals - bound in a single volume - are supplemented by the manuscript material and by Captain Joe's book about this very period in the fishery's history. The first journal, that of the "Mystic," was kept by three successive captains. It gives the usual information, enhanced by accounts of desertions, deaths, stowaways, and labor troubles with the crew. The three captains were Edwards, Smith, and Joseph. Each kept the journal in his own hand. The parts of the voyage under Edwards and Joseph were reasonably successful and happy. Smith's turn as master was marked by unhappiness among the crew, desertions, and poor luck whaling. Smith, who was dying of stomach cancer, was relieved at Dominica. Edwards used whale stamps 69 times to mark chases and kills. Smith used none, and had little occasion to. Joseph used drawings of flukes, to which he added details of each kill. Overall, it was quite a successful voyage returning, according to Lund, 2983 barrels of sperm oil. Lund's record of this voyage does not include the turn taken by Smith as master. The "Greyhound" was a longer lived and better known ship. She was a key part of the Azorean whaling fleet, and the scene of much of Joe Gomes' adventures in his book "Captain Joe." This journal begins in August 1917 and runs through June 1918, when she returned to port with 750 sperm. It resumes in September of that year and continues until August 19, 1919, at which time she returned, again with 750 barrels of sperm oil. The captain for the voyages was A.C. Corvello, though the journal was kept by a mate - who refers, occasionally, to "the Capt." The writing is sloppy, but the action is good. Early in December during the second voyage, there was a mutiny aboard. While the Captain was at the mast head the cook and an an accomplice used axes to wound some of the crew. They were eventually subdued and later turned over to the U.S. consul at Barbados. Toward the end of the voyage the "Greyhound" was leaking so badly she nearly sank. This portion of the journal uses 48 whale stamps. Everything about these journals is substantiated in "Captain Joe." Gomes, in fact had sailed a few years earlier on the "Greyhound" with Captain Corvello, who was his brother-in-law. I had always assumed that whales were scarce in the closing days of the Atlantic sperm whale fishery, but both these journals and Gomes' book correct that impression - there were plenty of whales, and there was plenty of action. "Captain Joe" is written "as told to Don Sevrens", but Gomes' unique voice comes through strongly in the narrative, and it is probable that Gomes sat and talked, while Sevrens scribbled away. The manuscript corrections in the typescript of the book (carbon copies on onionskin paper) are strictly confined to factual details. Finally, the notes accompanying this lot are intriguing. Some of them, at least were written in the early 1970s. Others, in the same hand, give details and provide illustrations of, fittings and rigging aboard the "Greyhound." One note reads, "Use to sit on Mr. Howvitz (who appears in the book) son in laws lap. Named Mo for short for Morris I suppose. He had curly blond hair..." which sounds very much like a note Gomes might have kept for ghostwriter Sevrens. The lot
