Fine condition.Datelined New Orleans, Louisiana, December 23, 1960, UPI reported ""Teachers and employees in the city's two nearly-abandoned integrated schools left for the holidays with a big gift - their pay checks ... The legislators paid all teachers except those in the integrated schools last month. They got so mad over a sweeping court order wrecking their latest segregation moves that they refused to pay anybody in the school system this month...""Mrs. Mary Sand, president of Save Our Schools, Inc., said that her organization has set up a back-to-school trust fund in the Bank of Louisiana at New Orleans. She disclosed that of the eight white students still going to integrated schools, several are in need of money. She said the father of one family has lost his job, but is continuing to send his child to Frantz. The eight white students went back to Frantz today with a lone Negro girl and there were only three Negro girls in McDonogh 19. It was the last day of school until Jan. 3.""The Student Emergency Fund was founded in April 1960 by two prominent Black Americans, Jackie Robinson and Mrs. Marion B. Logan, wife of Dr. Arthur Logan. Both Jackie Robinson and his wife Rachel were patients of Dr. Logan.On December 10, 1960, The New York Times had reported that the Student Emergency Fund was set up in New York City ""to help Negro and white students jailed in sit-in demonstrations in the South."" On December 22, 1960, the Times reported that the Student Emergency Fund ""is sending more than $2,000 to two white and four Negro families in New Orleans who defied segregationist picket lines to send their children to newly integrated schools. The group is headed by Jackie Robinson, former baseball star, and Mrs. Arthur Logan, wife of a Manhattan physician. Mr. Robinson said yesterday the organization would mail a $1,000 check today to Mr. and Mrs. James Gabrielle in North Providence, R.I. The family left New Orleans after Mr. Gabrielle had quit his city job because of 'unbearable harassment' by fellow employees. Mr. Robinson said the Rev. Lloyd Foreman, Methodist minister who also defied the picket lines, would be sent a check for $719, and the families of four Negro girls attending the two schools would receive $100 each.""Also present is a 4.5"" x 5.5"" sheet of blue note paper headed ""Deposited,"" dated 12/22/60, listing checks deposited and payments noting ""400 -4 Kids"" , ""Foreman 500,"" and ""679 - Gabrielles (+$121.00)"" - see December 22, 1960, article referred to above. four customer's receipts for Student Emergency Fund deposits each dated December 22, 1960, three 6.5"" x 11"" Chase Manhattan bank statements, with balances, each addressed to ""Student Emergency Fund / % Mr. Jackie Robinson / 425 Lexington Avenue / New York 17, N.Y.,"" February 1962 - May 1962.

        The Concept of Law. (FIRST EDITION.)

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1961. - FIRST EDITION. Original cloth. Very Good+, in dust jacket. 'The Concept of Law is the most important and original work of legal philosophy written this century. First published in 1961, it is considered the masterpiece of H.L.A. Hart's enormous contribution to the study of jurisprudence and legal philosophy. Its elegant language and balanced arguments have sparked wide debate and unprecedented growth in the quantity and quality of scholarship in this area--much of it devoted to attacking or defending Hart's theories. Principal among Hart's critics is renowned lawyer and political philosopher Ronald Dworkin who in the 1970s and 80s mounted a series of challenges to Hart's Concept of Law. It seemed that Hart let these challenges go unanswered until, after his death in 1992, his answer to Dworkin's criticism was discovered among his papers' (Clarendon Press Web site). 'With the publication of The Concept of Law in 1961, Hart's reputation was assured. Although some of the book built on themes from his debates with Lon Fuller and on his earlier writings about legal language, the book represented Hart's first comprehensive effort to understand the phenomenon of law from a philosophical perspective. This effort yielded numerous insights about the nature of rules, the structure and foundations of a legal system, the sources of law, and the character of legal obligation. It was Hart's lasting achievement, and although he also did pathbreaking work on the legal enforcement of morality, on causation, on Bentham, on the nature of authority, on punishment, and on various other topics, it is The Concept of Law that is his signal work. Indeed, it is The Concept of Law that explains why Hart can be the subject of a lengthy biography and why that lengthy biography can be the topic for an essay in the Harvard Law Review' (Frederick Schauer, '(Re)taking Hart', review of Nicola Lacey, A Life of H. L. A. Hart: The Nightmare and the Noble Dream, Oxford, 2004, Harvard Law Review, Vol. 119, 2006, pp. 852-883). Dworkin wrote a response to Schauer, 'Hart and the Concepts of Law' (Harvard Law Review, Issue 119, Jan. 2006, Forum 267). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Picasso. Toreros

      A. Zwemmer, A. Sauret, London, Monte Carlo 1961 - English version, translated from French. Uninscribed. Clean, bright cloth with Picador print. Clean slipcase, very slightly rubbed at corners, with lithographed prints on both sides, one of which is very slightly faded. 103 plates, 4 are in black and brown and one in "24 colours, printed by Mourlot Freres" (Only 4 seem to be called for and the coloured one differs from that in the French edition). Picasso design for end papers. The slipcase prints-black ink on red paper, standing alone, are impressive original prints, in my opinion. They must be hand pulled as the inking differs a little on either side. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

A very SCARCE early key BURGESS title with an interesting history:The novel was withdrawn from circulation following a libel action by Gwendoline Bustin, the secretary of Banbury Grammar School where Burgess taught in the early fifties. Several characters were recognisable as figures from the school, but only Miss Burstin, later Lady Mayoress of Banbury, objected. Heinemann agreed to 'amend all unsold copies of the book' (The Times, October 25, 1962) but actually pulped them. An extremely scarce title to find with such attributes.

        El papel de la ayuda exterior en el desarrollo de Cuba Charlas sobre problemas economicos en el Cine-Teatro MinFAR, marzo 9 de 1961

      12mo, photographic and pictorial stapled wraps featuring a large Cuban flag and Che Guevara seated at a desk on a stage. pp 28, illus, charts. Part one (and apparently the last) of a series entitled Ciclo de Problemas Economicos - issued by MinFAR (Ministry of the Revolutionary Armed Forces). Written by Guevara in his role as Minister of Industry, this paper lauds the increased revenue pouring in to Cuba via its Socialist and/or communist allies, namely USSR, China, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary, Poland, Dominican Republic, and Bulgaria (from $1m in 1958 to $500m in 1961). He stands this against the economic loss sustained by the recent severance of economic ties with the United States, concluding of course that Cuba is in a far greater position for economic development as a result. Wraps separated from stapled block, front wrap foxed, with chipping at extremities, rear wrap soiled, text clean and solid. Official stamp on last page. Rare, only one copy in libraries worldwide, according to OCLC; none in the U.S.

NOTE: pp. 26 to 42 in the Plates section, and the attendant plate pages, are present but detached from the text block, likely owing to inadequate glue application by the binder. A bit of off-setting from the pastedowns to the opposite FEPs. Else a very clean copy. With the original pictorial dust jacket, unclipped. The DJ is sunned and there is a chip at the spine head and another at the bottom edge of the front wrapper. Down-graded to Good Only on account of the loose pages, and priced accordingly. In a Very Good Minus DJ. Scarce in any condition. From the series, Porcelain of the National Palace Museum. The series began in 1961 and contemplated 20 volumes. The first volume of the series was the present volume on Ju Ware of the Sung Dynasty. Ju ware are among the greatest greenish-blue wares of all times. Because few pieces of this ware have survived, the twenty-three specimens that have been preserved in the National Palace Museum constitute a unique collection. Most of the plates in this volume reflect the original colors and the original sizes. The bases are also illustrated. This volume will be highly useful to the collector and the appraiser of fine Ju ware.. First Edition. Buckram. Good/Very Good Minus. Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall.
