        Wernher von Braun credits Herman Oberth's groundbreaking book, Rockets in Planetary Space, <i>"... became the guiding star of my life ? The book instilled in me the driving desire to work towards the realization that manned flights to our neighboring planets, a goal that is now within reach thanks to our dynamic national space flight program."</i>

      Typed Letter Signed, "Wernher von Braun," 2 pages, 8.5" x 11" on NASA George C. Marshall Space Flight Center letterhead, Huntsville, Alabama, March 3, 1966 to Miss Evelyn B. Byrne, a Bronx junior high school teacher recommending his favorite books to her journalism club, including Herman Oberths' pioneering 1923 book, Die Rakete zu den Planetenräumen (Rockets in Planetary Space). Minor staple holes at top left and expected mailing folds, else very fine condition. In response to Byrne and to her journalism club at Elizabeth Barrett Browning Junior High School in the Bronx, New York, that had enquired about his favorite books as a teenager, von Braun writes in full: "Thank you very much for your letter of February 4, 1966, informing me that your journalism club placed my name on the list of people influencing their reading choices. Of course, I am delighted and deeply gratified to know of your students' interest in the fascinating and challenging tasks of space exploration and hope many of them will later carry on our efforts and direct their talents to the exciting search for knowledge in our spatial environment. As to your question which book or books were my teen-age favorites, my answer is this: Reading was, still is, and always will be one of my favorite pastimes. Among the many novels I devoured as a youngster, I still remember the exciting accounts of Jonathan Swift's 'Gulliver's Travels'. From the comfortable vantage point of my own little room, the book allowed me to catch a glimpse of the strange and intriguing world outside. It not only entertained me, it added innumerable impressions to the limited scope of my personal experience. It was adventure and wisdom in one neat attractive package, easily digestible for any young inquisitive and curious mind. Another book that made a lasting impression on me was Hermann Oberth's 'Rockets in Planetary Space', one of the fundamental publications establishing the science of astronautics. In fact, this book became the guiding star of my life. Full of equations and strange symbols, it spurred me to throw myself into mathematics and physics in order to understand how rockets could limb higher than the limits of the earth's atmosphere and be used to explore the vastness of space. The book in instilled in me the driving desire to work towards the realization that manned flights to our neighboring planets, a goal that is now within reach thanks to our dynamic national space flight program. I sincerely hope many of your students will find the same satisfaction and inspiration through their favorite books that I was able to gain from my teen-age reading. My very best wishes go to all members of your journalism club and the entire student body of the Elizabeth Barrett Browning Junior High School." Von Braun first encountered Oberth's Die Rakete zu den Planetenräumen in 1925 while attending boarding school near Weimar, Germany which convinced him to study mathematics and engineering. In 1930, he entered the Technishe Hochscule Berlin where he assisted Oberth in the first static test firing of a liquid fuel rocket. Both scientists would become involved in the German rocket program at Peenemünde where the V-1 and V-2 missiles were perfected. Later in life Oberth would work for von Braun in Huntsville in the late 1950s where he participated in authoring the study, The Development of Space Technology in the Next Ten Years.

        Un album de famille de la Belle Epoque

      Edita S.A. et J.H. Lartigue 1966 - Textes et légendes rédigés par Jean Fondin(visionnez le diaporama) La Belle Epoque est née d'une conjoncture privilégiée: en 1900, la France jouissait de la paix depuis trente ans et il semblait que ce fût pour l'éternité. Le régime républicain, enfin bien rodé, maintenait une stabilité politique tout à fait rassurante. Le prodigieux essor du machinisme avait créé une prospérité économique inconnue jusque-là et la classe ouvrière, encore trop peu nombreuse était insuffisamment organisée, était utile sans être gênante. Ses revendications, matées à l'occasion par quelques charges de cavalerie, ne pouvaient troubler la sérénité d'une bourgeoisie plus confortablement que jamais installée dans l'aisance, ni entamer l'égoïsme d'une aristocratie qui pouvait encore dépenser sans compter. Couverture rigide en simili cuir brun foncé avec motifs dorés sur le plat avant et une photo de l'auteur étant enfant. En parfait état. 30 x 24 127 pages 2,300 kg [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The two writers Andrew Wyeth enjoys the most are Robert Louis Stevenson, whose books his father illustrated, and Henry D. Thoreau, whose hundredth birthday was the day Wyeth was born

      Rare Autograph Letter Signed ?Andrew Wyeth,? 2 pages, 7.25? x 10.5?, separate sheets. The Mill ?Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, February 9, 1966. To Miss Evelyn B. Byrne, New York. Fine condition. In full, ?Dear Miss Byrnes: Many thanks for your nice letter. Please tell your students that the two writers I enjoy most and still do are Robert L. Stevenson and Henry D. Thoreau ?" Mr Stevenson wrote about drama and Nature with great poems ?" and Mr. Thoreau wrote deep personal accounts of his looking in Nature.? It is interesting to note that in 1911, Wyeth?s father, N.C. Wyeth, painted a series of illustrations for an edition of ?Treasure Island? by Robert Louis Stevenson. The proceeds from this great success paid for his house and studio. He also illustrated editions of Stevenson?s ?Kidnapped? in 1913. Andrew Wyeth was born on July 12, 1917, the 100th birthday of Henry D. Thoreau, whose writings his father admired. It is not surprising that Andrew Wyeth enjoyed the works of Stevenson and Thoreau the most. From 1966 to 1970, Evelyn Byrne ran a program at New York City's Elizabeth Barrett Browning Junior High School where she asked major literary and artistic figures of the time to write back with their recollections of what books inspired them while they were teenagers. An assortment of their responses were published in the book Attacks of Taste, printed in 1971 by Gotham Book Mart.

His time in the Office of the Governor General saw the creation of a number of awards that reflected the Major-General's interests. He was an avid fan of sport and, though his favourite was hockey and specifically the Montreal Canadiens, Vanier instigated in 1965 the Governor General's Fencing Award and the Vanier Cup for the university football championship in the Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union. To recognise excellence in more bureaucratic endeavours, Vanier initiated in 1962 the Vanier Medal of the Institute of Public Administration of Canada and, in 1967, the Vanier Awards for Outstanding Young Canadians, awarded to deserving individuals in the Canadian Junior Chamber of Commerce. Vanier and his wife, Pauline were both nominated to be beatified in the Catholic Church because of their piety and love for humanity.Julia Verlyn "Judy" Lamarsh (1924-1980) was a Canadian politician, lawyer, author and broadcaster.

        Robert Bresson (Softcover, inscribed by Bresson and Esteve)

      Paris: Cinema d'Aujourd'hui no. 8 / Editions Seghers, 1966. Later printing, trade softcover. INSCRIBED by director Robert Bresson on the half title page: "Pour Pierre Goulliard / amicalement / Robert Bresson." Additionally INSCRIBED on the half title by the author: "Pour Pierre Goulliard / le toute [unknown] / Michael Esteve [underlined.]" An early critical look at the renowned auteur, who, despite his relatively brief filmography placed seven films in the recent 2012 "Sight and Sound" poll of the 250 best films of all time, more than any other director. Bresson was a notorious recluse during his lifetime, and autograph material of any kind is rare, this being only the third piece we have encountered or offered for sale.

        11:02 Nagasaki

      Tokyo: Shashindojin-sha, 1966. Spine toned, else near fine in photo-illustrated boards and original cardboard slipcase, toned at the edges and extremities. (Lacking the original acetate overlay.). First Edition. Small quarto. SIGNED by Tomatsu. One of the cornerstone books of postwar Japanese photography. In this brilliantly edited volume, Tomatsu moves away from a purely representational depiction of the horrors of Japan's defining moment, focusing equally on the abstract tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki rather than just human deformity. In many ways, the cover image of a watch stopped cold at 11:02 is more chilling than the profile of a scarred bride on her wedding day. (Parr / Badger, v1, 276-277; Open Book 226-227; Auer 454).

        Winston S Churchill, The Official Biography, full set of 8 main text volumes

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Co., 1966. First edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good plus. Here is a full set of 8 U.S. editions of the main text volumes of Winston Churchill's Official Biography. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, begun by Randolph Churchill and completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life. The eight, massive main text volumes were originally published between 1966 and 1988. The British and U.S. first editions of the eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. The British first editions were bound in solid red cloth. These U.S. editions were more elaborately bound, with tan linen spines over blue buckram boards with blue spine title blocks printed in red and gilt. The bindings also feature head and foot bands and red ruled transitions at the border between the tan linen and blue buckram. The final three volumes were issued in illustrated dust jackets, while the dust jackets of the first five volumes were issued in un-illustrated solid colors, similar to their British first edition counterparts. Here is a full set of U.S. first editions in dust jackets. This set claims nearly 18 inches of shelf space, weighs more than 26 pounds, and fills nearly 8,700 pages. Volumes III-VII are first edition, first printing, while Volume I is a first edition, third printing and Volume II is a first edition, second printing. All eight volumes are in near fine or better condition in dust jackets ranging from very good plus to fine. All eight bindings are square, clean, and tight. We note only a few small corner bumps. All contents are bright and clean with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. All dust jackets are unclipped, retaining original front flap prices and showing no losses. We note light wear to extremities on a few dust jackets and some sunning of the Volume IV jacket spine. The balance of the jacket spines - including the particularly fade-prone Volume V jacket - remain unfaded. All eight dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Please note that this is a large and heavy set that will likely require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A301a-h.
