        The Truth about Kuwait (1).

      [Baghdad], Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Juli, 1961. 8vo. Original printed wrappers; pp. 27, one map; wrappers a trifle spotted, otherwise very good. First edition, extremely rare. This is a public protestation of the Iraqi government against the independence of Kuwait. In June 1961 Kuwait became independent with the end of the British protectorate and Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salim Al-Sabah became Emir. Under the terms of the newly drafted constitution, Kuwait held its first parliamentary elections in 1963. Kuwait was the first Arab state in the Persian Gulf area to establish a constitution and parliament. The new state became the most developed country in the region and prospered, with the Kuwaiti governement setting up the world's first sovereign wealth fund. Of course, the Iraqi governement in this paper claims to have legitimate rights to rule Kuwait as part of Basrah province.

Wirkliche Erstauflage von Lems Science-Fiction-Roman über das grundlegende Versagen der Kommunikation zwischen menschlichen und außerirdischen Arten . - Stanislaw Lem (1921-2006) gilt als einer der wichtigsten philosophischen Science-Fiction-Schriftsteller. Sein Roman "Solaris" wurde zweimal von Andrej Tarkowski 1972 und von Steven Soderbergh im Jahr 2002 verfilmt. 1. Auflage : "Wydanie I" in einer Auflage von 10.000 Stück. (naklad 10000 egz) 1961. Es existiert eine Nachfolgeauflage (die kleine Schwester der Erstausgabe aus dem Jahr 1962 mit der Bezeichnung Wydanie II die in gößerer in einer größeren Auflage von 20.000 Stück gedruckt wurde). Irrtümlicherweise werden Exemplare dieser Folgeuaflage häufig als Erstausgabe angepriesen. Mithin dürften viele Exemplare die als Erstauflage angepriesen werden, zu dieser Folgeauflage gehören. In diesem Zustand angebotene wirkliche Erstauflagen sind extrem selten zu finden. Erst im Jahr 1970, mithin 9 Jahre später, erschienen die ersten Egnlischsprachigen Übersetzungen. Die Deutsche Erstausgabe erschien 1972 im Verlag "Marion von Schröder". Seiten papierbedingt minimalst gebräunt, Umschlagkanten des Schutzumschlages minimal berieben. Unauffälliger Besitzerstempel eines polnischen Vorbesitzers auf dem Vorsatz. Ungewöhnlich schöner und frischer Zustand dieser empfindlichen und sehr selten zu findenden Ausgabe.

Oktober 2015 in Düsseldorf) erwarben als Künstlerpaar mit ihren Schwarz-Weiß-Fotografien von Fachwerkhäusern und Industriebauten (wie Fördertürmen, Hochöfen, Kohlebunkern, Fabrikhallen, Gasometern, Getreidesilos und komplexen Industrielandschaften) internationales Renommee als Fotografen. Sie begründeten die bekannte Düsseldorfer Photoschule. Nach dem Tod von Bernd Becher führte Hilla Becher die fotokünstlerische Arbeit auch mit neuen Arbeiten fort. . . Bernd und Hilla Becher nahmen ihre gemeinsame fotografische Praxis während des Studiums auf. Sie verfolgten das Ziel, Industriebauten zu dokumentieren, die typisch für ihren Entstehungszeitraum und vielfach vom Abriss bedroht waren. Ihnen ging es, mit Ausnahme ihrer Dokumentation von Siegerländer Fachwerkbauten, immer um industrielle Produktionsanlagen und solche Industriegebäude, die im Zusammenhang mit der Produktion von Gütern standen. Kennzeichnend für ihr Vorgehen sind häufig Abwicklungen, sechs, neun, zwölf oder mehr Fotografien desselben Objekts in festgelegten differierenden Winkeln. Dadurch entstanden Typologien industrieller Bauten. Die Fotografien wurden betont sachlich konzipiert. In ihrer Aufnahmetechnik bevorzugten Bernd und Hilla Becher Zentralperspektiven, Verzerrungsfreiheit, Menschenleere und ein wolkenverhangenes weiches Sonnenlicht. Damit auch Einzelheiten präzise wiedergegeben werden, benutzten sie Großformatkameras mit dem Format 13 18 cm. Die Komposition der Bilder lässt die Oberflächenstrukturen und den Aufbau der grundsätzlich mittig platzierten Bauten stark hervortreten. * * Umschlag mit geringfügigen Läsuren, sonst gut bis sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar.Gezeigt werden Industriebauten * * * *Achtung ! ! !

        Silence (First Edition, inscribed to Ellsworth Snyder)

      Middletown, CT: Wesleyan, 1961. First Edition. First Edition. Beautifully and cryptically inscribed by Cage to longtime friend Ellsworth Snyder, on the printed front endpaper: "'for' Ellsworth Snyder [1] (and our shared devotion to Gertrude) 'in memory of my having ridden past there' in a VW microbus * 'when I was' 50** 'years old.' / John Cage / New Orleans 1963." Footnotes imbedded in the inscription above read as follows: "[1] Dr. Aurelia Henry Reinhardt, President of Mills College / * 'on a bicycle' / ** '13'." Additionally signed by David Tudor on the front pastedown, with a page of his holograph performance notes laid in. Also laid in is a two-page carbon typescript of composer Toshi Ichiyanagi's instructions for his composition, Sapporo. Snyder performed the composer's work on many occasions, perhaps most infamously at Cage's much-protested 1965 appearance at the University of Illinois: "At one point [Snyder] crawled under the piano, made a show of carefully marking a precise point on the under-body of the instrument with a tape measure, then hit that spot with a mallet. Even more provocative for that particular audience, he had planted a loose piano string in the instrument, and after striking an unusually percussive chord he slowly pulled the ostensibly broken string out of the piano. By this time the audience was screaming and throwing objects at the stage." (Johanne Rivest, In Advance of the Avant Garde: John Cage at the University of Illinois, 1952-69, 1999). Snyder interviewed Cage, wrote the first doctoral thesis on him in 1970, contributed the Cage timeline to Richard Kostelanetz's monograph, John Cage, authored several other works on the composer, and was the dedicatee of Cage's piece, ONE. David Tudor was Cage's premiere interpreter and performer in the 1960s. He gave the premiere of Cage's Music of Changes, Concerto For Piano and Orchestra and the notorious 4'33". Cage said that many of his pieces were written either specifically for Tudor to perform or with him in mind. The two worked closely together on many of Cage's pieces, both works for piano and electronic pieces. Upon Cage's death in 1992, Tudor took over as music director of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Among many works created for the company, Tudor composed Soundings: Ocean Diary (1994), the electronic component of Ocean, which was conceived by John Cage and Merce Cunningham. At the time of this inscription (1963), Snyder was teaching music at Tulane University. Though not specifically dated, this book was almost certainly inscribed on April 8th, 1963 when Cage performed with Tudor (and others) at Dixon Hall Auditorium in New Orleans. Along with Ichiyanagi's Sapporo, Tudor that night also performed Cage's Atlas Eclipticalis with Winter Music, as well as Christian Wolff's For 5 or 10 Players. The page of Tudor's notes, however, seems to best refer to Cage's Variation II, which the pianist also regularly performed on tour in 1963. A superb association. Fine in a Near Fine, price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket has just a touch of the usual rubbing.

        Mastering the Art of French Cooking

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1961. First edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. Book Near Fine on account of some small spots of foxing to the closed fore-edge of the page block. Price-clipped dust jacket also Near Fine on account of a printer's flaw, a faint line running the length of the front panel. Otherwise dust jacket is spectacular. First issue dust jacket with the correct points. Child's culinary impact was felt long before the latest craze in the wake of the 2009 film "Julie & Julia," starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams (particularly by those of us in her hometown of Pasadena). A scarce first in any condition, but, not surprisingly, most copies splattered with wine around the coq a vin recipe, glued with cheese on the soufflé page and seemingly dipped in hollandaise sauce, not to mention the copious notes written in the margins around family favorites. This copy suffers from none of those annoyances; a true collector's copy. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
