        To notesbøger m. orig. håndskrevne noter. Ca. 40 sider lille 8vo.

      Nogle blade daterede 1962. To spiral-notesbøger indeholdende letlæselig håndskrift, en grøn og en hvid, indlagt i nydelig priv. hldr.-kassette af langnarvet brun maroquin m.titel i guld på ryg: "Aksel/ Sandemoses/ notater/ 1962.". Notesbøgerne indeholder, ud over enkelte addresser og aftaler, en indkøbsliste og navnene på flere kendte forfattere, overordentligt interessante optegnelser og noter, Sandemose har benyttet som skitser til sine værker. Flere sider hænger sammen og udgør således nærmest hele fortællinger. (Eks.: "Det er en drøm om deg jeg/ nu fortæller... da sluttet alt i et glimt,/ men der på den ytterste strand/ fikk jeg tenkt at hydrogen-/ bomben var kastet mot/ København... Så hørte jeg/ Stemmen din ved øret,/ din Stemme som glødet nu/ og sa mitt navn... Jeg fikk sagt: Jeg vil med/ deg hjem... Det sluttet som flimringen/ på en fjernsynsskjerm."). Adskillige af optegnelserne har nærmest aforistisk karakter ("Forbitrelsen over/ å være ved siden av, og/ altså et utskudd", "Man/ skal ikke ta på henne med fløyelshandsker, men/ ta dem av.", "Bakom står den/ Onde og hoster så smått".) og afpejler tydeligt Sandemoses personlighed ( "Hvad haver jeg sagt og/ hvad haver jeg gjort, at/ jeg skal så ynkeligen/ omkomme blandt/ slette poeter?" ) og giver ligeledes et sjældent indblik i hans arbejdsprocess. Adskillige af optegnelserne ser ud til at være direkte citater, der har skullet anvendes i hans værker: " "Hva kan man egentlig/ få for en bok?" ", "Du kan godt/ fortelle det er deg der/ har slått op" etc

      Heinemann London: Heinemann. (1962). The uncorrected proof copy of the first British edition of his third novel. Signed by the author. Matthiessen is one of the very few authors who has won the National Book Award for both fiction and nonfiction. Of his early novels, Matthiessen has said that he is not happy with them, and would just as soon they not be reprinted or read, although he hasn't gone so far as to prevent his publisher from bringing them back into print. His novel after this one, At Play in the Fields of the Lord, a National Book Award nominee, represented a significant jump from this book in terms of literary accomplishment. The book prior to this, Wildlife in America, started him on the path toward becoming one of our most highly regarded writers of natural history. This short novel, a tale of the sea that is reminiscent of Conrad, dates from an early period in Matthiessen's career and is uncommon even in the U.S. trade edition. This is the only copy of the British proof we have handled. Spine-sunned, else fine in wrappers. . First Edition. Softcover.

        Obervation of High-Energy Neutrino Reactions and the Existence of Two Kinds of Neutrino.

      (New York), American physical Society, 1962. Lex8vo. Volume 9, No. 1, July 1, 1962 of "Physical Review Letters", In the original printed blue wrappers. A very nice and clean copy externally as well as internally, near mint. Pp. 36-44. [Entire issue: (2), 46 pp].. First edition of this seminal paper in which the discovery of the muon neutrino was first announced. The muon neutrino is the second of the three neutrinos and it forms the second generation of leptons. Jack Steinberger, Leon Lederman and Melvin Schwartz were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in the year 1988, "for the neutrino beam method and the demonstration of the doublet structure of the leptons through the discovery of the muon neutrino". In 1934 Enrico Fermi had solved the major problem of beta decay: How do electrons come out of the nucleus if there are non to begin with? Pauli had named his proposed light particle a neutron. James Chadwick had named his much more massive nuclear particle a neutron as well which left the two particles with the same name. Fermi therefore, to solve the confusion, coined the term neutrino (Italian diminutive of neutron). Speculations in the early 1940ies were centered on whether it would be possible to find even smaller parts of an atom. "The experiment used a beam of the AGS's energetic protons to produce a shower of pi mesons, which traveled 70 feet toward a 5,000-ton steel wall made of old battleship plates. On the way, they decayed into muons and neutrinos, but only the latter particles could pass through the wall into a neon-filled detector called a spark chamber. There, the impact of neutrinos on aluminum plates produced muon spark trails that could be detected and photographed -- proving the existence of muon-neutrinos. The experiment's use of the first-ever neutrino beam paved the way for scientists to use these particles in research at the AGS and around the world."(Nobel Prize, Brookhaven National Laboratory) "Following the discovery of a second neutrino associated with the muon - the Muon neutrino - at Brookhaven in 1962 by L. Lederman, M. Schwartz, J. Steinberger, and collaborators, a new neutrino program was started in CERN in 1963. Using a spark chamber set-up and a heavy liquid bubble chamber exposed to the new high quality neutrino beam the discovery was confirmed with high statistics". (Krige, John. History of CERN, 1996, p. 433)

        Kennedy Says the U.S. Must "grasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world."

      Kennedy Says the U.S. Must "grasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world.". In 1962, Kennedy's greatest economic worry was the country's balance-of-payments. The United States was buying more than it was selling - and the international trade deficit of $5 billion dollars weaked the value of the currency, risked inflation, and gave foreign nations the power to claim their debts in gold. (Today it is $763.6 billion. What would JFK think of that!). In order to strengthen the currency and ameliorate these problems, Kennedy needed to boost trade. He wanted the authority to negotiate lower tariffs, and he wanted power, too, to compensate American workers whose jobs would be lost to foreign competition. This was the basis of the Trade Expansion Act, introduced in his January State of the Union Message - and which would eventually see passage nine months later. But in May, the issue was far from settled; here the President stumps for the Act, shoring up support as he praises its benefits. Typed Letter Signed as President, on green White House letterhead, Washington, May 24, 1962. "Thank you for your telegram in support of the trade program which was presented to me at the dinner of the Coordinating Council of Organizations on International Trade Policy last week. I appreciate your interest and that of your State in the enactment of strong new trade legislation which will enable us to grasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world."

        Fire on the Mountain

      NY: Dial. 1962. The third novel by the author of Desert Solitaire and The Monkey Wrench Gang and his first book to deal explicitly with the ecological and environmental themes that dominated his later writings. Abbey's passionate and uncompromising writings in defense of the wilderness of the American West helped lay the groundwork for the activist environmental movement in the 1960s and since, encouraging the creation of such radical groups as Earth First! and helping to initiate the dialogue on "deep ecology" that defined much of the discussion in environmental circles. This is a fine copy in a fine dust jacket with the merest suggestion of rubbing at the corners and folds. One of the nicest copies we've ever seen of this book, which tends to rub and fade easily. .

        Divagazioni sopra un'Allemanda di John Bull per Orch. [7 variazioni su un'Allemanda di John Bull] Autograph working musical manuscript in condensed score. Signed

      48 pp. Folio (ca. 345 x 244 mm.). Unbound. Notated in both ink and pencil on 16-stave music manuscript paper. Heavily annotated with amendations and corrections throughout and including sketches and sections ultimately cancelled. Several movements dated by the composer at their conclusion, indicating that the work was written over a period of time extending from September (or earlier in 1962) to December of 1962 in Rome. Housed in a card folder with a presentation inscription from the composer's daughter Vittoria. With movements listed, together with performance times, to title as follows: "Tema - Allemanda del Duca di Brunswick (1:15), Balletto (.60), Passacaglia (2.42), Corrente (1.48), Siciliana (2.25), Gaglilarda (2.55), Sarabanda (3.50), Fanfara e Corale (5). The order of the movements has been revised, both on the title and within the manuscript. . An Italian composer, conductor and critic, Guerrini studied with both Torchi and Busoni at the Bologna Liceo Musicale, going on to direct the Florence Conservatory (1928–47), the Bologna Conservatory (1947–9), and the Conservatorio di S Cecilia (1950–60). "His earlier music combines high seriousness, at times somewhat academic, with luxuriant chromatic harmony reminiscent of Bax or, more significantly, Alfano. The textures and orchestration sometimes suggest Strauss, as does Guerrini’s interest, around 1920, in the symphonic poem; and there are indications, too, of Ravel's influence... The most substantial and imaginative of his early works is his second published work in the genre, L’ultimo viaggio d’Odisseo, which shows his harmony and orchestration at their most evocative. Also notable, in this early period, are the chamber compositions: the Violin Sonata is typical, combining succulent chromaticism with reiterative thematic developments. In time Guerrini’s academicism grew more pronounced, while his tendency to romantic indulgence was tempered by a new, architectonic sobriety. His best work after 1930 is in religious music: the gravely expressive Missa pro defunctis, though conservative, is free from the tiredness that mars much of Guerrini’s later output. On a different line of development, the Sette variazioni sopra una sarabanda di Corelli may, in their ingenious rethinking of material from the remoter past, reflect the influence of his teacher Busoni." John C.G. Waterhouse in Grove online

      Harper Row. Fine with no dust jacket. 1962, 1965. Prints. Children's; Commercial lithography ; Folio 13" - 23" tall; 4 pages; Four drawings taken from these titles: "Hector Protector," "Mr. Rabbit and the Lovely Present," and "Lullabies and Night Songs"Artist: Maurice SendakMedium: Commercial lithographyYear: 1965, 1962Dimensions: Unframed, prints measure approximately 13" x 17 1/2", 10 1/2" x 14" and 18 1/2" x 10"Details/Condition: Maurice Bernard Sendak (born June 10, 1928) is an American writer and illustrator of children's literature. He is best known for his book "Where the Wild Things Are," published in 1963. Sendak gained international acclaim after writing and illustrating "Where the Wild Things Are," a Caldecott Medal-winning picture book about a boy banished to his bedroom without his supper. He deals with his anger by imagining himself king of an island filled with enormous, frightening monsters. Critically acclaimed and controversial, Sendak is one of the first children's writers to deal frankly with the fears and anxieties of childhood. "Where the Wild Things Are" is the first in a trilogy, to be followed by "In the Night Kitchen" (1970) and "Outside over There" (1981) , which, in Sendak's words, are "all variations on the same theme: how children master various feelings--anger, boredom, fear, frustration, jealousy--and manage to come to grips with the realities of their lives." Mr. Sendak's original drawings are constantly in demand by museums, art galleries and collectors everywhere. Although most of his original work is archived at the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia, his pictures are represented in many major collections around the world. It understates his importance to simply call him a genius in his field: he has been called "the Picasso of Children's Books", and for more than a half-century his work has been critically praised, admired and emulated. Retrospective exhibitions have been held at the Ashmolean Museum (Oxford, 1975) , the Pierpont Morgan library (New York, 1981) , the Indianapolis Museum of Art (1999) , the Brennan Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta (2001, a version of which went on national tour) , the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Books (November 2002) , Brandywine River Museum (2003) , and most recently a remarkable survey of his art at the Jewish Museum (New York, 2005) covering both his book work and sets/costumes for opera and ballet, subsequently extending the show to the Tampa Art Museum in Florida (2006). Red objects in the picture are positioning magnets. .

BACKGROUND: Asturias is a region in northern Spain where coal miners staged a series of work stoppages, protests and strikes [1860-1934] that are seen by historians as being at the epicenter of the labor movement that culminated in the Spanish Civil War. The first large nationwide strike in Spain since 1934 had its beginnings on April 7, 1962 with staged walkouts by coal miners in Asturias. After a series of unsuccessful attempts to put down the spreading strikes, the Franquist government acceded to the miner's demands May 24, 1962. Galvanized by the miners' actions, a manifesto supporting freedom was published, signed by many of Spain's leading intellectuals and in 1963 leading expatriate artists & writers decided to express their support and collaborate on the book, "Asturias". The title symbolized their determination to bear witness and many of the texts & illustrations refer to the region's history. These themes are extended by Alcalde in the original art he executed solely for this copy. Juan Alcalde (b. Madrid 1918) went into exile in Paris with the advent of the Spanish Civil War. In 1939 he immigrated to Venezuela, returning again to Paris in 1960. He has exhibited extensively in France and Venezuela. SIZE: As issued, 330 x 282 mm (12.99 x 11.1 inches).
