        Rivista studi tradizionali

      , - Rivista studi tradizionali. , , AA. VV. Rivista studi tradizionali Riproduzione anastatice dell'opera completa: 12 volumi di cui 11 volumi di raccolta e 1 volume di Indice Formato: 17 x 24 cm ISBN: 9788879844413 È nota l'importanza attribuita da René Guénon tanto alla nozione di regolarità iniziatica, e alle organizzazioni che soddisfacessero questa condizione essenziale per la trasmissione dell'influenza spirituale, quanto alla preliminare comprensione della natura, delle condizioni e delle finalità della Via, attraverso lo studio e la meditazione dei simboli. Fu Roger Maridort, colui che, nelle parole di Denys Roman, è stato «senza dubbio l'ultimo corrispondente di Guénon (al quale scriveva ogni giorno), il "fedele tra i fedeli"» a determinare, stabilitosi a Torino, la fondazione delle Edizioni Studi Tradizionali e della «Rivista di Studi Tradizionali». Edita dal 1961 al 2003, la «Rivista» ha dedicato 97 numeri, ininterrottamente, proprio a quella chiarificazione teorica che è stata tradizionalmente definita, in funzione della realizzazione spirituale, come «il primo lavoro da compiere». Si tratta di circa 7000 pagine consacrate esplicitamente all'approfondimento del patrimonio simbolico, rituale e metodologico delle tradizioni orientali e occidentali: dall'esoterismo cristiano dei Fedeli d'Amore fino al Vêdânta, dal linguaggio sintetico del Tao fino all'Islâm, dallo Zen all'Arte della Costruzione; traduzioni e commentari di testi profondissimi in cui l'ispirazione ai princìpi metafisici è trasparente, cristallina, frutto di un ricollegamento spirituale «organico» e cosciente con il Centro, e quindi del tutto imparagonabile a una sterile erudizione di taglio accademico. Presentare l'intera riproduzione anastatica della «Rivista di Studi Tradizionali» è stato un compito straordinariamente importante. Abbiamo deciso di ripubblicare i testi come sono apparsi in questi decenni, senza modificare nulla, mantenendo la stessa griglia e dimensioni originali, omettendo qualsiasi introduzione o uno sterile «apparato critico» di note o un inevitabilmente arbitrario indice «ragionato» (a cui ne abbiamo preferito uno semplice, ma funzionale), certi così di rispettare le indicazioni della «Rivista» stessa, che ha sempre preferito una limpida presentazione dei testi, mai inquinata da congetture ed elucubrazioni di ordine individuale. L'operazione è stata, comunque, delicata e impegnativa: recuperare l'intera raccolta, in parte grazie ai collezionisti e in parte attraverso le librerie antiquarie, riprenderla professionalmente e impaginarla, suddividere le annate in volumi che non lasciassero una cesura tra i fascicoli originali. Il nostro intento è stato quello di rendere nuovamente fruibili al pubblico i contributi intellettuali della più autorevole pubblicazione in materia di studi tradizionali mai apparsa in Italia, ormai da anni introvabile; e per altro verso, di rendere onore a chi ha dedicato la propria intera esistenza alla realizzazione di questo progetto, in particolar modo al signor Bruno Riva e al signor Pietro Nutrizio, il cui straordinario lavoro ha consentito in Italia la diffusione, e per alcuni anche la vera comprensione, della magistrale opera di René Guénon.

        I don't wanna miss Mississippi - autograph manuscript score from the collection of Jack Teagarden.

      New York: , 1961. Large oblong folio (440 × 180 mm), red ownership stamps of Jack Teagarden on front and rear covers, along with the ink-stamped title and additional small stamp "Arr. by Sid Feller", dated May 25, 1961 in pencil. 10-page manuscript in graphite and red pencil, scored for trumpet, clarinet, trombone, drums, piano and bass. Staples rusted and with some associated discolouration, folded at the centre, else very good. Autograph manuscript musical arrangement of the popular song by Seger Ellis in the hand of Sid Feller. Teagarden's wife, Addie, gave this copy to a friend, explaining that it was apparently was used by Teagarden for his 1961 recording of this song, which appeared on his Misery and the Blues LP of that year. The American musician, conductor and arranger Sid Feller worked with Teagarden in the 30s, and again after the Second World War, before becoming a record producer, arranger and conductor for first Capitol Records and then ABC, working with such artists as Peggy Lee, Mel Torme, Jackie Gleason, Nancy Wilson, Dean Martin, Edye Gorme and Paul Anka. In 1960, he began a long collaboration with Ray Charles following Charles' departure from Atlantic Records. Charles' style changed considerably with his move to ABC. To die-hard R & B fans, the shift to a more mainstream repertoire and the introduction of string and vocal choir arrangements was criticised, and Feller took much of the blame. Charles, however, not only made a conscious choice to broaden his approach but gave Feller much of the credit for making it possible. On the breakthrough album, Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music, Charles said, "Sid researched the hell out of it and came up with 250 tunes. I picked the ones I liked, and of the ones I picked, they were all new to me except 'Bye Bye, Love'". The album produced Charles' biggest career hit, 'I can't stop loving you'. Charles was later to remark, "If they call me a genius, Sid Feller is Albert Einstein".

        [Pair of embossed silver book covers, with two engraved silver clasps].[Netherlands?, ca. 1725?]. Pair of embossed silver book covers (34 x 25 x 3 cm); each cover with a large scrollwork cartouche surrounded by extensive vine and flower decorations and with medallion portraits in each of the four corners, the front showing the crucifixion flanked by Mary and St. John (with an "INRI" scroll above, flanked by a crescent moon and a sun, and a scull and crossbones below), with portraits of four saints, each with a blank scroll (above left bearded with a regal crown; above right clean-shaven with a round-topped mitre; below left and right bare-headed and bearded), the back showing the resurrection with an angel and two astonished guards, with portraits of the four Evangelists.

      Cf. J.W. Frederiks, Dutch silver, vol. 4 (1961), nos. 238-239 & plates 235-237 (vaguely similar silver bindings from 1732 & 1738); nothing similar in J.F. Hayward, Silver bindings from the J.R. Abbey collection. Beautiful, richly decorated early 18th-century Dutch silver binding. The large silver covers, together weighing about 750 grams, bear no silver marks. Although no spine is present, the clasps show that the binding was made for a book about 2 cm thick, suggesting 200 or 300 pages, so most likely made for a folio missal. The clasps are hinged to the back cover, each with a round hole that fastens to a round-headed pin on the fore-edge of the front cover.With a 1 cm crack on the fore-edge of the back cover, another slightly affecting the arm of one guard and a few tiny holes where the tips of the noses of some figures have worn, but still generally in good condition. A lovely and unusually large pair of embossed silver book covers.

        [Photo Albums]: Two Albums of a Colonial Police Officer serving in Northern Rhodesia

      Africa, 1961. Fine. Two string-tied oblong albums measuring 12" x 14" and 10" x 14". A collection of 295 black and white or color photographs affixed to stiff black paper measuring 2.25" x 3.5" to 6.5" x 8.5", with captions. Both albums are fine with fine photographs. Two photo albums from a colonial police officer with squad 39/60 while serving in Northern Rhodesia from 1961, before independence, to 1965 when Zambia was formed. Both albums are extensively captioned with hand drawn maps as well as ephemera tipped-in and kept as documents detailing his time in Africa. The first album begins, "on the afternoon of 4 February 1961 I flew out over the coast of Sussex in a Vickers Viscount of British United Airways bound for Northern Rhodesia." It shows photos of the barracks and recruitment offices as well as squadrons of officers including some native Africans used as constables who had historically been allowed reluctantly to participate in the police force by the British. The album shows the leisure time at the barracks as well. Here officers are shown playing Karamoja, an African version of Rugby, with native Rhodesians, playing guitars and singing at the mess hall. At the Ndola location police can be seen participating in riot drills and parades. The "main location," as it's captioned, included a mosque, market, and a Catholic church.The second album starts in 1962 with a trip to "visit friends in Fort Rosebery" which includes a hand drawn map of the territory. The photos show men standing around the officers club before returning to their posts. One page shows a "day of peace" which resulted in a football (soccer) match between the Police Reserve and the Regulars. In February of 1963 the officer took a trip to Mombasa, Kenya, marked here with a small map. He took in some sightseeing, drinking, hiked in the jungle with friends, and visited a Giriama village. The country and natural beauty can be seen here with photos of the jungle, Indian Ocean, and various rivers. Later in the album the officer's "annual pistol shoot" is documented, which included women (as participants, not targets). One photo of an African prisoner is captioned, "Our adulterer. He was beaten up by a crowd after fornicating with somebody's wife." The political unrest of the region is shown through pictures of protests with African's holding signs decrying the British government, stating the terrible unemployment rate, and telling them to "quit Africa." The album ends in 1965 with a final group shot of the company which followed a page captioned, "thank God we're still British."A large accumulation of photographs and firsthand accounts of the waning days of British involvement in Africa.

In February of 1963 the officer took a trip to Mombasa, Kenya, marked here with a small map. He took in some sightseeing, drinking, hiked in the jungle with friends, and visited a Giriama village. The country and natural beauty can be seen here with photos of the jungle, Indian Ocean, and various rivers. Later in the album the officer's "annual pistol shoot" is documented, which included women (as participants, not targets). One photo of an African prisoner is captioned, "Our adulterer. He was beaten up by a crowd after fornicating with somebody's wife." The political unrest of the region is shown through pictures of protests with African's holding signs decrying the British government, stating the terrible unemployment rate, and telling them to "quit Africa." The album ends in 1965 with a final group shot of the company which followed a page captioned, "thank God we're still British."A large accumulation of photographs and firsthand accounts of the waning days of British involvement in Africa.

        Photo Albums]: Two Albums of a Colonial Police Officer serving in Northern Rhodesia

      Africa 1961 - Two string-tied oblong albums measuring 12" x 14" and 10" x 14". A collection of 295 black and white or color photographs affixed to stiff black paper measuring 2.25" x 3.5" to 6.5" x 8.5", with captions. Both albums are fine with fine photographs. Two photo albums from a colonial police officer with squad 39/60 while serving in Northern Rhodesia from 1961, before independence, to 1965 when Zambia was formed. Both albums are extensively captioned with hand drawn maps as well as ephemera tipped-in and kept as documents detailing his time in Africa. The first album begins, "on the afternoon of 4 February 1961 I flew out over the coast of Sussex in a Vickers Viscount of British United Airways bound for Northern Rhodesia." It shows photos of the barracks and recruitment offices as well as squadrons of officers including some native Africans used as constables who had historically been allowed reluctantly to participate in the police force by the British. The album shows the leisure time at the barracks as well. Here officers are shown playing Karamoja, an African version of Rugby, with native Rhodesians, playing guitars and singing at the mess hall. At the Ndola location police can be seen participating in riot drills and parades. The "main location," as it's captioned, included a mosque, market, and a Catholic church.The second album starts in 1962 with a trip to "visit friends in Fort Rosebery" which includes a hand drawn map of the territory. The photos show men standing around the officers club before returning to their posts. One page shows a "day of peace" which resulted in a football (soccer) match between the Police Reserve and the Regulars. In February of 1963 the officer took a trip to Mombasa, Kenya, marked here with a small map. He took in some sightseeing, drinking, hiked in the jungle with friends, and visited a Giriama village. The country and natural beauty can be seen here with photos of the jungle, Indian Ocean, and various rivers.

        Thunderball.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1961 - Octavo. Original dark brown boards, titles to spine gilt, skeletal hand design on front board in blind. With the pictorial dust jacket. A little foxing to top edge, faint tape residue to endpapers. An excellent copy in the bright jacket, with small mark and nick to head of spine, tiny tape repair to verso. First edition, first impression. Ian Fleming's novel Thunderball incorporated material from an unproduced screenplay he had worked on in 1958 in collaboration with Kevin McClory, Jack Whittingham, and Ivar Bryce, with the result that Fleming found himself in a well-publicised case in the High Court defending himself against McClory's accusations of plagiarism, though Fleming and McClory eventually settled out of court.

        Three typed letters signed

      three pages (approximately 200 words) 28 December 1961 - 31 May 1962, New York - To the writer, editor and publisher Neville Braybrooke. The first thanking him for an inscribed copy of his novel The Idler and wishing him success. The second thanks him for a copy of The Wind and the Rain, and regrets that she let her contribution: "Galerie Religieuse get by with errors, spelling for one, fourfold. And I have `With long sheaved wings' when it should be `In'" and sends a corrected copy (no longer present) in case there should be a second printing. The third letter thanks Braybrooke for a kind review: "particularly gratifying to have The Antiphon remarked, as the mental resistance to, as the Swedish name it, `a play for the rich in spirit' is phenomenal. Some not only do not study it, they do not read it with attention. One critic thinks Titus the violater (sic) of Miranda. I do wish Dylan Thomas could have recorded parts of Nightwood: the very best sort of voice for certain kinds of writing, entranced and rolling." Paper-clip mark to last letter, light creasing, folded for mailing and in very good condition.
