        Moncrif's Cats.

      The Golden Cockerel Press. 1961 4to., Navy blue morocco, with vertical inlaid panels of deep red morocco, that on the upper board decorated in gilt, t.e.g., others untrimmed, illustrated with ten collotype reproductions of illustrations by Coypel from the edition of 1727. Spine the slightest bit sunned otherwise a near fine copy in slipcase. One of one hundred numbered copies, specially bound by E.W. Hiscox, from a total edition of four hundred numbered copies printed on Saunders mould-made paper at the Chiswick Press. Moncrif (1687-1770) was a French writer, courtier, and academician now best known for his Histoire des Chats, first published in 1727. In letter form, Moncrif discusses the role of cats throughout history and his work can be read both as a satire of pedantic academic writing and a sincere tribute to the domesticated feline. "Let us calm ourselves ... one day we shall see the merits of Cats generally recognized. It is impossible that we should not come to feel that in our Cat we possess a friend who is the best of company, an admirable Pantomimist, a born Astrologer, a perfect Musician, in short the union of the talents & the graces" (p. 104-5). From the library of Thomas Yoseloff, the last owner of the Golden Cockerel Press, by family descent, but with no ownership markings.

        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.

        Four photo albums of events in India, owned by Thomas W. Simons, American Counsul General in Madras

      1961 - Four photo albums of events in India that contain more than 100 professionally taken images, owned by Thomas W. Simons, American Counsul General in Madras. Three oblong octavos; one oblong quarto. All appear to be presentations to Simons, who appears to be the featured guest or speaker. These were presented by Caltex Oil Company at the Inauguration of the Caltex Oil Refinery at Visakhapatnam (1957); the Lions Club of Kottayam; at Simons' Inaugural Address of the General Council at Anmnamalai University (1961); and the fourth unidentified.Most seem to be professional photos and are artistically mounted. 107 pictures total (including seven loose), perhaps five or six lacking, whether these are the loose ones or not is unclear. Some are captioned. Images include Simons speaking at banquets with local dignitaries, many sari-clad dancing girls, pictures of Simons in the streets, etc.Curiously we could find relatively little about Simons, although his son Thomas W. Simons, Jr. seems to have made a name for himself as ambassador to Pakistan.

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. Das hier vorliegende Exemplar ist auch bei Wikipedia abgelichtet. Gerne übersende ich bei Interesse weitere aussagefähige Fotos auf Anfrage.

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 ! ! !
