        Photo Album]: New Jersey Family Album with Emphasis on Transportation

      Bloomfield, New Jersey, Queens, New York 1960 - Oblong quarto. String-tied brown flexible leather with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front cover measuring 10.5" x 12". Very good minus with tears, loose pages, and lacking some photos. A collection of 159 photographs taken by New Jersey photographer H.J. Rosenkranz of his family,and friends, among other things, from the turn of the century until around 1960, mostly uncaptioned. The assembled photos range from landscape shots of rural New Jersey and the surrounding area, people posing on benches, in their house, and outside in various locations. Pictured are photos of a biplane in flight, an elaborate double-decker bus with a spiral staircase, and horse drawn carts full of straw baled by farmers. The album also contains beautiful large shots of train yards and locomotives. There are also some professional family portraits, weddings photos, and new baby. Laid in is a Rosenkranz business card as well as a prayer card for Frieda Rosenkranz, though it is unclear whether she was a wife or daughter. Some of the later images are in color including a trip to Washington DC, complete with cherry blossoms, and one of a man posing on his land and a older woman by a gravesite. A nice assortment of vernacular images from a minor professional photographer from New Jersey capturing 60 years of his history.

        [THE ONLY RUSSIAN NOBEL LAUREATE IN ECONOMICS] Ekonomicheskii raschet nailuchshego ispolzovaniya resursov [i.e. The Best Use of Economic Resources]

      Moscow: Izd-vo AN SSSR, 1960. 348 pp. Publisher's binding. Very good condition. Previous owner's inscription, spotted to edges, extremities rubbed, corners bumped, pencil marks. First edition. Second printing. Leonid Kantorovich (1912-1986) is best known as the only Russian economist to have become a Nobel Laureate. In 1942 Kantorovich had already written the first version of this monograph. He was so far ahead of his time-and thought so far outside contemporary notions of political economy-that the book was not published until 17 years later. Only then did his pioneering ideas begin to be recognized and accepted by other economists. Subsequently, this book was translated into many languages. Ultimately, he was recognized in the West with the Nobel Prize. The book itself is a summary of the author's long-term research into methods of linear programming which is further developed here and applied to economic planning. The core of this book, and its main value, consists in its use of specific examples in modeling practical solutions to economic problems.

        FUDOH MYOH-OH INBUTSU: ONE-HUNDRED IMAGES OF FUDOH MYOH-OH, FROM TOH-JI TEMPLE,

      - [Kyoto 1185-1333, Tohji Temple]. A single sheet woodblock printed, white Washi mulberry paper, 32 x 48 cm., minor old worming now rebacked, shows 100 FUDOH MYOH-OH icon images, extremely rare and famous work. FIRST & ONLY OBSCURE EDITION This FUDOH MYO-OH is a thirteenth century Late Heian [1185-1336] A.D. Buddhist work and is represented showing one-hundred individual Buddhist images, woodblock printed. . WHAT IS FUDOH MUYO-OH: FUDOH MYO-OH was one of the supernatural guardians of the paradise of the Amida Buddha. Also known commonly as the "Immovable Wisdom King," is the patron deity of the Yamabushi. He usually portrayed holding a sword and a lariat, clad in rags, has one fang pointing up and another pointing down, and a braid on one side of his head. It is also know in Chinese as BU DONG MING WANG. * PULSATING: Jon Rosenfield stated: "Overcrowded, pulsating with bristling energy, this sheet of one hundred tiny stamped images of Fudoh is typical of those found inside Buddhist statues of the 13th century." See his book cited below. * FUDO MYOO: In Sanskrit: Acalanatha, was the principal of the Myojh or "Enlightened Kings" of Esoteric Buddhism, A manifestation of Dainichi and a powerful conquer of evil, he is shown in many frightening aspects. Commonly depicted in very early woodblock prints with a fiery Mandala behind his head. See references below for Wikipedia citation. * This print was found in the Toh-ji [Eastern Temple], Kyoto. from the Shingon Buddhist sect. This is located next to the famous Rashomon gateway to the Heian capitol [now Kyoto]. It was formerly known as Kyoh-oh-gokoku [The Temple for the Defense of the Nation by Means of the King of Doctrines] believed to defend the nation. * This work upon discovery was first considered to have been printed in the Heian period [794-1185], later after study, it is currently believed to have been printed in the Kamakura [1185-1392] and is so cited by Baskett and Rosenfield to be this period. This Inbutsu [woodblock print] along with several others, was rolled up, then placed inside a hollow place in a Fudoh Myoh-oh statue and left for over nearly a millennium. In the 1960's Japanese temple monks began to conserve and preserve ancient sculptures in the Toh-ji temple and therefore discovered these prints. * Monk's efforts brought to light a few rare bundles of these prints, undisturbed. In an effort to save the structure and sculptures a very few were given to patrons of the temple in gratitude for substantial donations, which has been a common practice for over 2000 years in Japan, China and Korea. Because these prints were left sealed inside the statues, they were preserved in extraordinary condition. In some cases a few worms or insects penetrated and left some damage to the hand-made Washi mulberry paper, sadly this was unavoidable. Ours is one of those presented to a patron. Mosaku discusses this on pages 29, 30. * TOH-JI TEMPLE: UNESCO designated this as part of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto" a World Heritage Site. The temple is located Minami-ku near the intersection of Omiya and Kujo Streets, southwest of Kyoto Station. Toh-ji is often associated with Kobo Daishi [Kukai]. The well-known Buddhist priest was put in charge of Toh-ji in 823 by order of Emperor Saga. The temple's principal image is of Yakushi Nyorai, the Medicine Buddha. * PRINTING AS A DAILY DEVOTION: Ishida points out this on p.30-31, discussing the Heian practice of worshipers printing a number of Buddhist images each day or month to fulfill a religious vow. Printing these images gave merit and virtue to the printer, thereby increasing their position in the Buddhist Sangha [community]. Temples encouraged the Sangha to print images as that aided in soliciting donations. "Donors were allowed to pay for the printing of Buddhist images to be placed inside of statues. This served the purpose of temple finance in much the same way as printed appeals for contributions. The images were never distribu

        Adult Pulp Cover Original Art

      1960 - A collection of original artwork for several adult-oriented paperback pulp novels from the early 1960s, including six small color mockups, measuring 4" x 7", and four large preliminary pencil sketches, measuring 20"x 26". The sketches have an applied paper boarder secured with masking tape and are somewhat chipped along the edges, near fine, while the mockups have only the slightest touch of wear to a couple of corners, else fine. The art appears to be all from the same unknown artist with the preliminary sketches representing more detailed renditions of all but two of the color mock ups. The text on the mockups is not readable except for the titles and a few scattered words, likely as intended. Our research was not able to determine definitively whether these covers were ever published or if these are spec illustrations done by an artist to secure work. The Exotic by Carter Brown was published several times, the earliest being a 1961 Signet paperback, but neither it nor any of the other printings we examined matched the artwork found here. This is also the case for The Night It Happened, Demon Lovers, and Big Blondes. The remaining two titles illustrated here, Wild Heat and Adorable Creatures, could not be located at all. Likewise we were unable to identify with any publisher the crossed key logo found on all but one of the covers. Two of the titles, Demon Lovers and Adorable Creatures, are particularly notable for their obvious lesbian themes. An interesting group of titillating artwork from the golden age of the pulp paperback.

Jones Jr." Some Near fine in a excellent near fine price-clipped dust jacket with light wear to the extremities. Jacket design by Ben Feder. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box.

No one is likely to break his records of 13 U.S. and British national championships, and four in one year (he won the U.S. Open a total of four times, the U.S. Amateur five times, the British Open three times, and the British Amateur one time) The Masters seems to have a secure place in the pantheon of golf; and the name Bobby Jones will continue to represent the highest standards of amateurism, sportsmanship and self-mastery" (ANB).

        Drawings for the Bible.

      Printed in Paris for Harcourt Brace & Co. New York 1960 - First American edition of this double issue of Verve, 37/38, with additional title-page in English. Folio (35.5 x 26 cm), [17] pp, 24 original colour lithographs by Chagall printed by Mourlot, 96 black and white photogravures printed by the brothers Draeger and reproducing the etchings made by Chagall for the Illustrations for the Bible, [16] pp. Text by Gaston Bachelard translated into English by Stuart Gilbert. Publisher's pictorial boards depicting David, Bathsheba and God; moderate edgewear, the spine showing some separation, remains of the original dust wrapper, corners slightly bumped. Chagall's celebrated illustrations for the Bible, with 24 additional colour lithographs specially made for this Verve edition. "Since early youth, I have been captivated by the Bible. It seemed and still seems to me the greatest source of poetry of all time. Since then, I have sought out its reflection in life and in art. The Bible as it were resonates in nature, and it is this secret I try to convey" (Marc Chagall). In this beautiful portfolio, produced in Paris under the direction of the well-known publisher Tériade, Marc Chagall (1887-1985) continued his exploration of the Bible, as a source of inspiration for his drawings. The publication capitalises on Chagall's first cycle titled Illustrations for the Bible, which had been specially commissioned by Ambroise Vollard, the great art dealer and publisher of artist books, and was published by Tériade for Verve in two volumes in 1956. In the present work, Chagall additionally included scenes of the Old Testament's 'great dramas' drawn in 1958-59 , among which one finds the story of the Garden of Eden, Cain and Abel, the flood, the golden calf, Jonah and the whale, David and Goliath etc. Sorlier 75; Cramer 42.
