        Summoned by Bells

      Leather-bound, top edge gilt and limited to 125 signed and numbered copies. Some rubbing to extremities with a minor bump to bottom of front board. An excellent and clean association copy with 'Douglas Cleverdon' Ex Libris label affixed to half title. The book was given to Douglas Cleverdon; a radio producer, bookseller, publisher and author as a 60th birthday present in 1963. Among the books Cleverdon published was Gill's Art and Love and an edition of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner with and introduction and illustrations by David Jones. From 1939 - 1969 he worked for the BBC. During the war he devised The Brains Trust, and as a producer, mainly of radio features on the Third Programme, he commissioned and broadcast poets (including Betjeman), playwrights, composers and writers, giving a first hearing to Flanders and Swann and persuading Dylan Thomas to come up with Under Milk Wood, which Cleverdon produced in 1954 and featured Richard Burton in the role of First Voice. Accompanying the book is a letter from 'Theodore'; possibly a personal friend, although the references in the letter showing familiarity with John Betjeman and Jock Murray (publisher) suggest that it may have been somebody that Cleverdon had worked with previously.

        Deeply revealing signed Malcolm X typed letter to Elijah Muhammad

      East Elmhurst, New York, July 13, 1960. 8.5" x 11". "Malcolm X TLS, as two extensively typed pages, 8.5"" x 11', on tissue stock with red typed highlights. Dated ""July 13, 1960"", just five years before his death, and boldly signed by Malcolm X in blue ink, in addition to including a full four line autographed post script. Signed as ""Bro Malcolm X"", under his typed name of ""As-Salaam-Alaikum"". In impeccable condition.An incredible and eloquent long letter, typed by Malcolm X to his teacher Elijah Muhammad going into extensive detail on his progress in spreading his teachings. While one reads his letter, it becomes readily apparent just how much of a one man 'Force-Majeure' Malcolm X truly was. He was involved in everything, stirring up all elements of the Black movement everywhere in the world, and pulling in assistance from all walks of life. His humble, yet activist, and fully enigmatic writing skills shine in this letter to his teacher, beginning with his first sentence ""I thank ALLAH for the time HE blessed me to be with you last week, and also for the financial help you gave me, which I know you need for yourself. ""And in his metaphoric, philosophical, complimentary and yet inspiring tone, he continues, ""I look upon it as ""seed-corn"", which I do not intend to eat, but to plant, so that when you see it again it will have produced a decidedly large ""increase"".This is a man who was able to instill leadership, inspiration, hope and unity. And yet it was his very ties with his ""teacher"" Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam that ultimately ended his life when in February 1965, he was assassinated by three members of the Nation of Islam after he had grown disillusioned with this group. If he only knew ...However, during his years from 1952 to 1964, Malcolm X focused on proselytizing black supremacy, advocated the separation of black and white Americans and rejected the civil rights movement for its emphasis on integration. Malcolm X promoted the Nation's teachings including the specific beliefs:· that black people are the original people of the world· that white people are ""devils""· that blacks are superior to whites, and· that the demise of the white race is imminent.Many whites and some blacks were alarmed by Malcolm X and the statements he made during this period. He and the Nation of Islam were described as hatemongers, black supremacists, racists, violence seekers, segregationists, and a threat to improved race relations. He was accused of being anti-Semitic. One of the goals of the civil rights movement was to end disenfranchisement of African Americans, but the Nation of Islam forbade its members from participating in voting and other aspects of the political process. Civil rights organizations denounced him and the ""Nation"" as irresponsible extremists whose views did not represent African Americans. He called the 1963 March on Washington ""the farce on Washington"", and said he did not know why so many black people were excited about a demonstration ""run by whites in front of a statue of a president who has been dead for a hundred years and who didn't like us when he was alive"".But for all the things Malcolm X represented, he still wielded enormous power. In this letter to Elijah Muhammad he referenced that ""He is off to Philadelphia to show my slides tonight .. Helping to build up caravans in those cities for the trip to New York on the 31st."" ... ""I re-established contact with the Nigerian I had met on the plane coming back from Albany. ALLAH really blessed me to thoroughly brainwash several of them and them back to Nigeria loaded down with our literature ..."", ""my main purpose in dealing with them is always to establish good diplomatic relations with those in governmental positions, figuring somewhere done the line they may come in handy ..."", ""ALLAH blessed me to make friends with (John Patterson, the only so-called Negro on Wall Street and who firm owns Harlem's newest Newspaper), a column titled ""Muhammed has 'em really worried"" attracted much attention ... "" Malcolm X even had wheels in motion on forging alliances with Wall Street and the investment firm, writing that ""Mr Patterson wants to know what he can do to help us. He is very impressed by what you have already done ... I have approached him not on a religious basis but on an economic basis he understands better ... I explained your Future Plan to him, and he said it is in his field to set up the proper machinery (system) to raise funds, finance, or get financial backers for such projects. ALLAH has blessed me to sell him on the idea of meeting with you in person. He's a native New Yorker and understand the cold facts of life. He see the handwriting on the Wall in Africa. He sees the Black Man coming to the top. And he sees you the only one in America with the vision to devise a program that will be in keeping with the pace that is being set now all over the earth by Dark Mankind.""There would be little debate about that Malcolm X certainly knew how to use his skills to create unity, an incredible spiderweb network of supporters, and fully work the system. He was everywhere, not only literally everywhere on the planet, but everywhere socially and economically. Even his concluding sentence ""I must dash off to Philadelphia"" ends with his intense, driven, high energy personality.In an ironic twist, it was this very 'machine' that Malcolm helped to build, which he became disenfranchised with. It was during his pilgrimage to Mecca that Malcolm X had his second epiphany which rocked his beliefs to the core, and set him on an alternate path. Malcolm witnessed what he claims he never saw in the United States: men of all color and nationalities treating each other equally. "Throngs of people, obviously Muslims from everywhere, bound for the pilgrimage," he'd begun to notice at the airport terminal before boarding the plane for Cairo in Frankfurt, "were hugging and embracing. They were of all complexions, the whole atmosphere was of warmth and friendliness. The feeling hit me that there really wasn't any color problem here. The effect was as though I had just stepped out of a prison." To enter the state of ihram required of all pilgrims heading for Mecca, Malcolm abandoned his trademark black suit and dark tie for the two-piece white garment pilgrims must drape over their upper and lower bodies. "Every one of the thousands at the airport, about to leave for Jedda, was dressed this way," Malcolm wrote. "You could be a king or a peasant and no one would know." That, of course, is the point of ihram. As Islam interprets it, it reflects the equality of man before God.He entered Mecca in 1964 as ""Malcolm X"", but he left Mecca as ""El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz"", when he became an orthodox Muslim, adopted the Muslim name and distanced himself from the teachings of the black Muslims. This was the moment he sealed his fate as his previous followers, and ""The Nation of Islam"" assassinated him in 1965, when his new path and preachings were in direct conflict with their beliefs. Most of the energy of his adult life was invested in the pursuit of black supremacy, and in one short moment, he made a complete 180 degree turn and the last year of his life was spent in embracing unification, and co-existence. In 1965 Life Magazine published a legacy article on the life and death of Malcolm X, within which they quoted him shortly before his assassination (and in perhaps his last epiphany) as having said ""I did many things as a Muslim that I am sorry for now. I was a zombie back then - like all Muslims - I was hypnotized, pointed in a certain direction and told to march. Well I guess a man's entitled to make a fool of himself if he's ready to pay the cost. It cost me 12 years""This phenomenal, revealing, lengthy letter typed and signed by Malcolm X shows his true brilliance during ""those very 12 years"" of his life."

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.

        Report On Project In Understanding New Media

      No Place: National Association of Educational Broadcasters, 1960. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Subtitled "A Report To The United States Office Of Education From The National Association of Educational Broadcasters". Document produced by McLuhan as a result of a grant from the National Defense Education Act. Its purpose was to develop a syllabus for 11th graders in media awareness and the basic laws concerning sensory effects of various media. Not surprisingly the document was too advanced for high school students, but it served as a springboard for many of McLuhan's greatest themes which were published in The Gutenberg Galaxy and Understanding Media later in the decade. This document, well over two hundred pages in length, has been bound in a contemporary binding. A few inked margin notes in an unknown hand, else a fine copy. Scarce and important media document.

Some spots and dampstain to cloth, lower corner bumped, dampstain also affecting pastedowns and top edge of portions of contents, some toning and spotting of contents, which are a little curled at the corners, a very good copy. 29 plates, some of which are full-page and others tipped-in, also tipped-in is a two-leaf offprint from Nature titled in typescript Appendix I, tables in the text. The doctoral dissertation of prominent biochemist Richard Penry Ambler. From the library of his supervisor Frederick Sanger, with a large number of Sanger's pencilled annotations, largely x's to mark specific points, as well as a few small corrections and short notes about the content. Ambler obtained his doctoral degree under Sanger at Cambridge during the late 1950s and early 60s before joining the newly established department of molecular chemistry at the University of Edinburgh. "Ambler's research career was devoted to answering questions concerning the evolution of bacteria with the aid of amino acid sequence information. This led him to perfect protein sequencing techniques and in 1963 he published the first amino acid sequence of a bacterial protein, that of Pseudomonas cytochrome c551" (Scotsman obituary). His most significant work investigated the evolution of antibacterial resistance and cellular structures such as mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell) and cytochromes (ancient proteins key to cellular energy production). Crucially, Ambler demonstrated that bacteria evolve in two ways, through the normal process of passing on mutations to their progeny, and also "horizontally", by absorbing and incorporating genetic material from other bacteria and organisms in their environment. "Such 'horizontal' gene transfer, he found, occurred with great frequency during the development of antibiotic resistance — a discovery which has proved central to the understanding of what is now recognised as a major public health challenge" (Telegraph obituary).

        Report On Project In Understanding New Media

      No Place: National Association of Educational Broadcasters, 1960. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Subtitled "A Report To The United States Office Of Education From The National Association of Educational Broadcasters". Document produced by McLuhan as a result of a grant from the National Defense Education Act. Its purpose was to develop a syllabus for 11th graders in media awareness and the basic laws concerning sensory effects of various media. Not surprisingly the document was too advanced for high school students, but it served as a springboard for many of McLuhan's greatest themes which were published in The Gutenberg Galaxy and Understanding Media later in the decade. This document, well over two hundred pages in length, has been bound in a contemporary binding. A few inked margin notes in an unknown hand, else a fine copy. Scarce and important media document.

        MILÙ, eigentlich Maria de Lurdes de Almeida Lemos, (* 24. April 1926 in Lissabon, Portugal; ? 5. November 2008 in Cascais, Portugal) war eine portugiesische Schauspielerin und Sängerin original signiertes Foto gewidmet original autographed photo dedicated

       1960. 11,7 X 16 cm tadelloser ZustandMilú, eigentlich Maria de Lurdes de Almeida Lemos, (* 24. April 1926 in Lissabon, Portugal; ? 5. November 2008 in Cascais, Portugal) war eine portugiesische Schauspielerin und Sängerin Nach kleineren Auftritten bereits mit Sieben sang sie im Alter von 10 Jahren erstmals alleine im Radio, das Lied O amor é cego e vê (dt.: Die Liebe ist blind und sieht), aus dem Film Bocage (1936). 1938 stand sie erstmals sowohl auf der Theaterbühne, in einem populären Kinderstück im Teatro Éden, als auch vor der Filmkamera, in Chianca de Garcias Aldeia da Roupa Branca (dt.: Dorf der weißen Wäsche), als Zwölfjährige an der Seite von Beatriz Costa. Im staatlichen Rundfunk Emissora Nacional trat sie nun regelmäßig auf, sowohl mit Liedern als auch mit Rezitationen und in Hörstücken.Auf Grund ihres Aussehens, dass dem Schönheitsideal der Zeit entsprach, engagierte der ehemalige UFA-Schauspieler Arthur Duarte 1943 die 17-jährige Milú für seinen Film O Costa do Castelo (dt.: Der Costa vom Castelo-Viertel), wo sie eine Hauptrolle an der Seite von António Silva bekam. Der Film wurde ein bis heute populärer Kassenschlager, und machte auch Milú zum Star, die im Film ihre zwei bekanntesten Lieder sang, Minha Casinha (dt.: Mein trautes Heim) und Cantiga da Rua (dt.: Straßenlied). Noch 1943 gab sie bekannt, dass sie heiraten und sich nach ihren spanischen Filmengagements aus dem Showgeschäft zurückziehen werde, was eine Welle von Sympathiebekundungen und Aufforderungen, nicht aufzuhören, nach sich zog. 1946, nach ihrer Scheidung, nahm sie wieder Filmrollen an. In der Folge nahm sie zahlreiche Schallplatten für Valentim de Carvalho auf, und bekam Filmrollen in portugiesischen und spanischen Produktionen. Neben der populären Beatriz Costa, und zusammen mit Maria Eugénia, war Milú einer der beliebtesten weiblichen Stars des Portugiesischen Films der 1940er und 50er Jahre. Sie galt als Schönheits-Ikone und zierte zahlreiche zeitgenössischen Titelblätter in Portugal. Auch in zahlreichen Stücken des Revue-Theaters stand sie auf der Bühne, darunter in Agora é que são elas in Lissabon 1953, an der Seite von Raul Solnado und João Villaret 1954 in Não Faças Ondas (dt.: Mache keine Wellen), und 1960 in Ven y Ven in Barcelona.[1][2]Die seit den frühen 50er Jahren wiederkehrenden Angebote aus Hollywood, die sie ausschlug, fanden ein Ende, als sie 1960 erneut heiratete, und in die brasilianische Heimat ihres Mannes zog. Von 1960 bis 1968 lebte sie in Brasilien, wo sie bis auf einige Fernsehauftritte und gelegentliche Schallplattenaufnahmen nicht öffentlich in Erscheinung trat. Nach ihrer Rückkehr drehte sie 1969 mit dem populären Sänger und Schauspieler António Calvário, bevor sie für José Fonseca e Costas Erfolgsfilm Kilas, o Mau da Fita (dt.: Kilas, der Böse des Streifens) ein letztes Mal vor der Filmkamera stand.[3]Sie ist bis heute eines der bekanntesten Gesichter der Hochphase des Portugiesischen Films der 1940er Jahre. Auch die von ihr gesungenen Lieder wurden bekannte Schlager in Portugal, die bis heute ähnlich populär wie die Filme blieben. So hat beispielsweise die Band Peste & Sida auf ihrem Album Eles andam aí! (1992) eine Version des bekannten Liedes Cantiga da Rua aus dem Film O Costa do Castelo (1943) aufgenommen. Zuvor hatten Xutos & Pontapés mit ihrer Version von Minha Casinha 1987 bereits Verkaufsrekorde gebrochen: über 40 Jahre nachdem Milú das Lied gesungen hatte, wurde die Band nach der, als \"7° Single\" vermarkteten Single zur erfolgreichsten Band in der portugiesischen Geschichte.2007 wurde Milú von Präsident Cavaco Silva der Orden des heiligen Jakob vom Schwert (Ordem de Sant\'Iago da Espada) verliehen.Nachdem sie zuletzt ihr Augenlicht weitgehend eingebüßt hatte, litt sie in ihren letzten Tagen 2008 an Entzündungen der Atemwege, an denen sie am 5. November 2008 starb. (Quelle: Wikipedia) Lager 1 Autogramm, Autographe, Autograph signiert signed signature unterschrift

        STAMPA ORIGINALE DI FOTOGRAFIA, epoca seconda metˆ dell'800, tirata all'albumina, mezzana (cm. 21,0x25,0) incollata su cartoncino forte color ceruleo (cm. 36,0x46,0) raffigurante un busto di DANTE ALIGHIERI di scuola fiorentina del XVI sec. Sotto l'immagine, a sinistra: 7618 (?) Napoli, Museo, Dante; a destra: Sommer - Napoli. Si unisce: copia in bronzo del busto descritto, dimensioni (massima altezza per massima larghezza) cm. 31,5x43,0.

      G.Sommer, Napoli. - Il busto di Dante, fino al 1960, era esposto nella sala 87 del museo di Capodimonte a Napoli (Vedasi in proposito Bruno Molajoli, "Notizie su Capodimonte. Catalogo del museo e gallerie nazionali" Napoli, 1960) dove fu spostata, presumibilmente verso la fine del 1957, insieme con la Pinacoteca prima alloggiata nel Museo Nazionale. La copia in bronzo che qui offriamo unita alla fotografia originale, fu realizzata dal laboratorio che il Sommer install˜ a Napoli, in via S. Attanasio 66, destinato all'esecuzione di statue in marmo, bronzo e terracotta, copie di originali custoditi nel museo Nazionale (archeologico) di Napoli. L'esecuzione  certamente antecedente al 1885, come si evince dall'esame di un'albumina 23,4x29,7 di quello stesso anno, che riproduce i "Bronzi e terracotte del repertorio Sommer" tra cui compare, in bell'evidenza, il nostro busto. Vedasi anche Marina Miraglia e altri, "Un viaggio tra mito e realtˆ" Carte Segrete, 1993, pag.16. La libreria offre per un periodo limitato uno sconto del 20% su tutti i suoi libri. Il prezzo originale dell'articolo era 1000 euro.

        H.A. Lorentz et la coopération international. The Hague, Martinus Nijhoff, 1928. With a photographic frontispiece portrait of Lorentz, printed from a halftone block. Original publisher's grey printed wrappers.

      WorldCat (1 copy); not in Boni, Russ & Laurence, Bibliographical checklist ... Albert Einstein, 1960; for Lorentz: DSB VIII, pp. 487-499. An offprint of an overlooked article by Albert Einstein about his colleague, friend and fellow Nobel Prize laureate in physics, Hendrik Antoon Lorentz (1835-1928) in Leiden, written in French. Einstein wrote it before Lorentz died but added a 10-line postscript noting and commenting on Lorentz's death, which occurred on 4 February. The article originally appeared in Grotius: annuaire international for 1928 and discusses Lorentz's contributions to international reconciliation after World War I. Lorentz's widow gave a copy of the offprint to the British physicist Owen Richardson, perhaps for the occasion of his receipt of the Nobel Prize for physics in 1928, but perhaps due to her own death in 1931 the offprints seem to have hardly been distributed. We found only one copy of the offprint in libraries worldwide.In fine condition. Einstein's appreciation of H.A. Lorentz, overlooked by Einstein bibliographers.
