        Touching Autograph letter signed by David Ben-Gurion about Bar Mitzvah celebrations for orphans of soldiers killed in the recent Six-Day War

      Autograph letter signed "David Ben-Gurion", in Hebrew, one page, 8vo, February 28, 1968, addressed to Shifra Golombian (a war widow). Ben-Gurion praises the Habad Youth initiative to make a Bar Mitzvah ceremony to orphans of soldiers who were killed in the Six-Days war only a year earlier. He regretfully rejects her invitation to take part in the ceremony due to previous engagements and acknowledges her pain and grief. A full translation is included. Ben-Gurion was among the founders of Mapai which governed Israel during the first three decades of its existence. He stepped down as Prime Minister, on personal grounds (as he explained) in 1963, and, in fact, nominated Levi Eshkol to be his successor. One year later a rivalry developed between the two on the issue of the Lavon Affair. Ben-Gurion broke with the party in June 1965 over Eshkol's handling of the Lavon affair and formed a new party, Rafi which won ten seats in the Knesset. As tensions loomed before the outbreak of the Six-Day War in 1967, Be

There are no names or markings to text. 89 pages.

The condition of the book is FINE- with a very small bookstore sticker on the first free endpaper. The dust jacket is in FINE- condition with very minimal surface wear. As Kotaro Iizawo explains in \"The History of Japanese Photography\", the aim of the enormously influential Provoke movement was to \"rethink the rigidified relation between word and image, and to create \'new language, in short, new thought.\'\" Founded by Koji Taki and Nakahira Takuma in late 1968 (Daido Moriyama joined the group for their second issue), the group produced \"fragmented images that completely demolished the established aesthetic and grammar of photography.\" In keeping with the tumultuous events of that year, the artists of Provoke were fierce in their desire to do away with received ideas and meanings (\"the world of pseudo-certainty\"). And, in true avant-garde spirit, theirs was a frontal assault on the medium and the institutions in which they were working. As individuals, however, they were constantly at odds with one another; Provoke, their house organ, ceased publication in August 1969 after only three issues. Provoke 4&5, published a year after the dissolution of the group, represents their final statement and contains five portfolios, Provoke 1-5, and six texts, Predict 1-6.

In 1968 Eckert was one of twelve recipients of the National Medal of Science, receiving this honor for "pioneering and continuing contributions in creating, developing, and improving the high-speed electronic digital computer." The National Medal of Science-the most prestigious scientific award given in the United States-was established by act of Congress in 1959 "to provide recognition for individuals who make outstanding contributions in the physical, biological, mathematical, and engineering sciences" (in 1980 Congress expanded this recognition to include the social and behavioral sciences). Eckert was presented the National Medal of Science on January 17, 1969, by outgoing president Lyndon B. Johnson, whose signature appears at the foot of the accompanying certificate (no. [2]). One of the photographs in no. (5) shows Eckert receiving the medal from Johnson; the remaining four show Eckert with vice president Hubert H. Humphrey. Origins of Cyberspace 1359. </p>

        ARPOCRATE SEDUTO SUL LOTO ( Signed )

      1968 - Madrid, Arte Graficas Lius Perez, 1968 (1ère et probablement seule édition), couverture souple, environ 21 X 30 cm, non paginé. Texte en italien. Le premier contre-plat porte une petite dédicace signée Walter, est-ce bien Walter Marchetti ??? à vous de conclure. Toutefois sachez que Maryvonne Kendergi à qui est adressée la dédicace est une personnalité importante en ce qui concerne la musique ¿¿actuelle¿¿ au Canada (voir son parcours sur Wikipédia) , dans cet optique il est très probable qu¿elle ait rencontré Walter Marchetti. La couverture est en bon état mais la pellicule plastique se décolle à certains endroits le long des marges, ce qui semble le cas pour la plupart des exemplaires que l¿on peux apercevoir sur le net. Le dos présente une ride de pliure et un peu d¿usure au coin supérieur de l¿arête frontale. L¿intérieur est en très bon état sans rien à signaler autre qu¿un cachet presqu¿effacé sur la première page. Un ouvrage rarissime. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Extremely rare autograph document in Semmelweis' hand, from his time at the St. Rochus Hospital in Pest were he eliminated childbed fever, medical testimony regarding a female patient, signed and dated 24. December 1854.

      Despite the wide interest there has been for more than a century in Semmelweis' work and personality there are still today extremely few examples of autograph material by him. In their 1968 article on Semmelweis manuscripts the three authors Antall, Harko, and Vida note: "Researchers always attach great importance to the manuscripts of great personalities. Not only the contents of these manuscripts are of great value, but they are very valuable historical documents and museum pieces too. For this reason and on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Semmelweis' birth we considered necessary to summarize what survived him in manuscript form. He left only few manuscripts; the first drafts of his published works are irretrievably lost. In 1940 György Korbuly summarized the number of the discovered Semmelweis manuscripts and he stated in his article: 'if we inquire, how many manuscripts of Semmelweis we know today, the reply is expressively depressing. We know today only 5 original letters of him". (J.Antall, V.Harko u T.Vida, Semmelweis Ignac összegyütött keziratai, Budapest 1968). The authors continue to mention that since 1940 some new Semmelweis manuscripts had come to light in London and Budapest, but that still in 1966 when Ákos Palla described a newly discovered document he estimated a total number of documents known worldwide to be 20-30. We cannot locate any other autograph material in the auction records. <br/><br/> The large and impressive document (380 x 240 mm) is a medical testimony done by Semmelweis when he was primary obstetrician at the St. Rochus Hospital in Pest. The patient, Anna Petermann, claimed when she was hospitalized for birth, the 9th October 1854, that she was 19 years of age. Due to two obstetric surgeries Semmelweis however realized that the patient must be at least thirty. The document is signed with a large and bold signature by Semmelweis "Ig. Philipp Semmelweis, Med Doctor & Primar-Geburtsarzt zu St. Rochus" and dated "Pest den 24 December 1854".<br/><br/> "During 1848-1849 some 70.000 troops from the Habsburg-ruled Austrian Empire thwarted the Hungarian independence movement, executed or imprisoned its leaders and in the process destroyed parts of Pest. Semmelweis, upon arriving from the Habsburg Vienna in 1850, likely was not warmly welcomed in Pest. On May 20, 1851. Semmelweis took the relatively insignificant, unpaid, honorary head-physician position of the obstetric ward of Pest's small St. Rochus Hospital. He held that position for six years, until June 1857. Childbed fever was rampant at the clinic; at a visit in 1850, just after returning to Pest, Semmelweis found one fresh corpse, another patient in severe agony, and four others seriously ill with the disease. After taking over in 1851, Semmelweis virtually eliminated the disease. During 1851-1855, only eight patients died from childbed fever out of 933 births (0.85%). Despite the impressive results, Semmelweis's ideas were not accepted by the other obstetricians in Budapest. The professor of obstetrics at the University of Pest, Ede Flórián Birly, never adopted Semmelweis's methods. He continued to believe that puerperal fever was due to uncleanliness of the bowel. Therefore, extensive purging was the preferred treatment. After Birly died in 1854, Semmelweis applied for the position. So did Carl Braun - Semmelweis's nemesis and successor as Johann Klein's assistant in Vienna - and Braun received more votes from his Hungarian colleagues than Semmelweis did. Semmelweis was eventually appointed in 1855, but only because the Viennese authorities overruled the wishes of the Hungarians, as Braun did not speak Hungarian. As professor of obstetrics, Semmelweis instituted chlorine washings at the University of Pest maternity clinic. Once again, the results were impressive." (Wikipedia)..

      o.O., 1968 - o.O., 1968. o. Pag. OPp. im Orig. Schuber. Nr. 33 von 61 Expl. Eighd. signiert. Jede Abb. monogrammiert RH 31. In franz. Sprache. - Leichte Gbrsp. Schuber leicht berieben. - Hausmann (1886 - 1971) in Wien geboren, wuchs jedoch in Berlin auf. 1905 freundete er sich mit Johannes Baader an. Seine Arbeiten für die Zeitschriften "Der Sturm" und "Die Aktion" zeigten noch expressionistische und futuristische Züge. Er wurde ein wichtiges Mitglied der Dada-Bewegung in Berlin, der er von 1918 bis 1922 angehörte. In Berlin lebte und arbeitete er zusammen mit Hannah Höch. Hausmann schuf ein medial breit gefächertes Oeuvre zwischen Gemälden, Collagen, Plastiken und Textarbeiten (u.a. dadaistische Manifeste). Zusammen mit Hannah Höch gilt er als ein Pionier der Fotocollage. Dieser neuen Technik hatte er sich während des 1. Weltkrieges zugewandt, nachdem er die frühere expressionistische Orientierung seiner Arbeit verworfen hatte. Er inspirierte mit seinem Gedicht "fmsbw" Kurt Schwitters zu dessen Ursonate. Umgekehrt experimentierte er selbst, angeregt durch die Freundschaft mit Schwitters, mit Lautgedichten und Typographie. Vom 30. Juni bis zum 25. August dieses Jahres veranstaltete er zusammen mit George Grosz und John Heartfield die "Erste internationale Dada-Messe" in Berlin, zugleich Höhepunkt und letzter großer öffentlicher Auftritt der Berliner Dada-Gruppe. 1919 gründete er die Zeitschrift "Der Dada", von der bis 1920 drei Ausgaben erschienen. 1920 besuchte er zusammen mit Kurt Schwitters und Hannah Höch die Dadaisten in Prag, diese Reise sollte als Anti-Dada-Merz-Tour eine Reaktion auf die politische Polarisation innerhalb der Berliner Dadaistenszene sein. Im Frühjahr 1921 trennten sich Hausmann und Höch. Nach dieser Trennung hörte er mit der Malerei auf und konzentrierte sich in der Arbeit auf Fotografie und dem Schreiben von Gedichten. 1926 begann er während eines Ibiza-Aufenthaltes seinen Roman Hyle. 1933 musste Hausmann emigrieren, da seine künstlerische Arbeit zur "entarteten Kunst" gezählt wurde. Seine Stationen waren Ibiza, Zürich, Prag, schließlich Paris, von wo aus er während des Krieges nach Südfrankreich floh. Nach dem Krieg arbeitete er weiter in den drei Bereichen Malerei, Fotografie und Schriftstellerei. In einer großen Zahl von Ausstellungen und Veröffentlichungen beteiligte er sich selbst an der historischen Interpretation des Dadaismus. Hausmann lebte seit 1944 in Limoges, wo er verstarb.

        Postcard/Letter Signed (ALS) [The Grapes of Wrath, East of Eden, Tortilla Flat, Of Mice and Men]

      New York, 1968. First edition. None. Fine. A Near Fine Postcard (expected age toning, minor evidence of handling, small hole punched in the margin for insertion into a binder) with the address typed and having on the message side an intriguing letter (ALS) WHOLLY IN JOHN STEINBECK&#39;S HAND and SIGNED BY JOHN STEINBECK. The postcard bears a New York Post Office cancellation dated October 2, 1967 (less than a year before Steinbeck&#39;s death on 10/20/68) and reads as follows: "Dear Friend: I am gratified at your / interest in my work. Right now I am / deep in a project, and you will understand / that to break concentration to answer the / many questions and requests that come / in every day would destroy any continuity / Thank you for your letter. I am / sorry to have to take this unsatisfactory / means of acknowledging it. / yours, / John Steinbeck". A very nice and intriguing letter from John Steinbeck mentioning an unspecified "project" that seemingly was occupying virtually all of his time and energy, as well as a copy of the letter to Steinbeck from his adoring fan. During the last years of his life (after the publication of "The Winter of Our Discontent" in 1961, and his reception of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962) Steinbeck had ceased publishing Fiction and the note does not reveal the nature of the all-consuming project then occupying Steinbeck&#39;s time and energy. A very nice AUTOGRAPH (POSTCARD) LETTER SIGNED BY JOHN STEINBECK, TOGETHER WITH the addressee&#39;s carbon copy of her adoring fan letter to Steinbeck which generated the above-described post card, the text of which letter expresses sentiments held my many Steinbeck fans. [We see such notes from Steinbeck once in a while, but never have we seen one with the text of the letter to which Steinbeck responded.] An excellent Steinbeck ephemeral item, WRITTEN IN STEINBECK&#39;S HAND AND SIGNED BY HIM.
