        Hochzeit in Orgossolo. Oel auf Pavatex. Auf Rückseite voll signiert. Vorne links unten monogrammiert.

      1969 1969 - 59 x 79 cm, Kleine Farbfehlstellen sonst tadell. Gerahmt hinter Glas. Mythologisches Bild mit religiösen Anspielungen. Fries, Willy (1907 Wattwil (SG), ?18.7.1980 Wattwil (SG), Maler, Zeichner und Grafiker. Wandbild, Glasfenster, Zeichnung, Holzschnitt und Illustration. Der im ländlichen Wattwil aufgewachsene Willy Fries bricht 1929 sein Studium der Kunst- und Literaturwissenschaft an der Universität Zürich auf Anraten von Heinrich Wölfflin zugunsten einer Laufbahn als freier Künstler ab. In Paris kurzzeitig an den Académies Scandinave und Grande Chaumière sowie in den Ateliers von Fernand Léger und Amédée Ozenfant. 1930?34 weitere Ausbildung an der Universität und der Akademie in Berlin sowie Anschluss an den Kreis der bekennenden Kirche um Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Studienreisen nach Italien, Frankreich, Holland und Flandern. 1935 zwingt ihn ein Skiunfall zum Verbleib in Wattwil. Dort entsteht mit dem Gemäldezyklus Die Passion (1936?1944, Köln-Marienburg, Garnisonskirche), der die Leidensgeschichte Christi in der damaligen Gegenwart und mit dem Toggenburg als Kulisse schildert, in den folgenden Jahren sein Schlüsselwerk. 1939 Heirat mit der Pfarrerstochter Dorothea Wieser und endgültige Niederlassung in Wattwil. Fries entwickelt sich zu einem vielbeschäftigten Künstler, der zahlreiche Fresken und Glasfenster für Kirchen, Spitäler und Gemeinschaftsräume vorwiegend in der Ostschweiz, aber auch in Berlin, Bonn und Seifhennersdorf entwirft. Mit der Passion und weiteren Gemäldezyklen wie Christ ist geboren (1944?49), einer Schilderung der Weihnachtsgeschichte vor den Ruinen der zerbombten Stadt München, findet er im Kontext zeitgenössischer religiöser Malerei in der Nachkriegszeit starke Beachtung und wird mit Einzelausstellungen in der Schweiz, in Deutschland und Frankreich geehrt. Die filmische Umsetzung der Passion in eigener Regie unter dem Titel Gib uns Frieden wird 1962 mit dem Anerkennungspreis der Interfilmtagung in Brüssel prämiert und von zahlreichen Fernsehstationen gesendet. 1964 Gesamtausstellung im Kunstmuseum St. Gallen. Auszeichnung mit dem Rembrandt-Preis in Salzburg 1970. Für seine Bemühungen um die Darstellung des Evangeliums in der Malerei wird er 1972 mit dem Doktor honoris causa der theologischen Fakultät der Universität Bern geehrt. 1977 Jubiläumsausstellung in den beiden Kirchen von Wattwil. Die vom Künstler in seinem Todesjahr gegründete Stiftung veranstaltet 1982 in St. Gallen sowie 1987 in Hamburg und Berlin Gedächtnisausstellungen. 6000 gr.

        Typescript of the Foreword to The Complete Works of Kate Chopin

      [c. 1969]. Wilson's four-page typescript, with his holograph corrections. Signed by Wilson and with his note at the top: "Please send me a proof of this. Edmund Wilson/ Wellfleet, Mass." We have no way of knowing whether Wilson got his proof: the manuscript differs from the final text by several words. The Complete Works of Kate Chopin, edited by Per Seyersted, was first published by the Louisiana State University Press in 1969; it was reprinted in paperback in 2006 and a first printing of the 2006 edition is included here. This was the volume that completed the resurrection of Kate Chopin's literary reputation, from that of being an obscure and largely forgotten regional writer to being one of the important American authors of the 1890s, a proto-feminist and a tragic figure. The inclusion of an introductory assessment of her work by Seyersted and of a foreword by no less a figure than Wilson -- probably the preeminent American man of letters at the time -- seemed designed to put the critical weight of the literary establishment behind this re-evaluation of her writings. Wilson reports in these pages that prior to this work, he had difficulty finding Chopin's stories to read, and in order to read her first novel, At Fault, he had to go to the microfilm at the Library of Congress. The typescript is folded once and has staple removal holes at the upper left corner; the top page is evenly sunned; near fine. A laudatory manuscript about one major American author by another.

        Neutron Star

      Macdonald London 1969 - First British and World First hardcover edition, and an extremely rare book indeed. This is the first collection of his "Known Space" stories. The title story won the 1967 Hugo Award. Unclipped protected jacket, and very rare thus. Most hardcover copies disappeared into libraries with the subsequent abuses of stamps and inserts. This one obviously never found itself anywhere near a library, and got itself into the hands of someone who cared because it is in better shape than any copy I have seen. Clean and tight text block, binding a little sunned at the top edge, but no bent corners to the binding. No inscriptions, no turned down corners. Jacket is brilliant too. A stunning collection of truly great SF stories. Niven's second book, and I believe this was its only hardcover issue. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Napoli, Arturo Berisio Editore, 1969 - 1970. 18 volumi in folio di circa 200 pp. ciascuno. Legatura in mezza pelle, dorsi a cordoni con titolo e fregi in oro. Cerniere indebolite. Fedele ristampa della dotta rivista storico - letteraria apparsa nel 1892 nella quale profusero largamente studi ed articoli i più insigni scrittori del tempo: Benedetto Croce, Schipa, Bartolomeo Capasso, Ceci, Bertaux, de Rinaldis, Di Giacomo, Giulio de Montemayor, Vittorio Spinazzola, Corrado Ricci, Michele Ruggiero, Lorenzo Salazar ed altri. Innumerevoli illustrazioni, disegni, incisioni dei più caratteristici monumenti del Mezzogiorno nei particolari e nell'insieme. Ritratti di artisti e di notabili, riproduzioni di rarissimi documenti. E' tutto un panorama storico del Regno di Napoli, del suo passato e delle sue opere d'arte, visto con gli occhi di B.Croce, che scelse con minuta attenzione le illustrazioni nonché i collaboratori. Rivive qui il Croce erudito come nella ?Critica? si afferma il Croce filosofo. Cosicchè la raccolta di questa dotta e preziosa rivista italiana riesce documento insostituibile di Napoli capitale e delle sue vicende e più ancora dell'amore e dell'interesse che il Croce per quelle sempre ebbe. Dall'introduzione di Gino Doria: ?La prima Napoli Nobilissima, sempre più ambita e ricercata, era divenuta una vera rarità bibliografica, tale da indurre l'editore Arturo Berisio a concepire ed attuare una ristampa?.

        Nixon, As Presidential Strategist, Justifies His Postal Reorganization As Not Pro-Union in a Letter to IkeÕs Conservative Brother

      - Nixon, As Presidential Strategist, Justifies His Postal Reorganization As Not Pro-Union in a Letter to IkeÕs Conservative Brother.In May 1969, four months after he became president, Richard Nixon asked Congress to pass a postal reform act calling for removal of the Postmaster General from the Cabinet and creation of a self-supporting postal corporation wholly owned by the federal government. No action was taken on the issue until March 1970 when there was an illegal postal workers strike called in response to the proposal and Nixon sent in troops and the National Guard to help deliver the mail. After the strike was settled in April, the administration introduced the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970 to abolish the United States Post Office Department and creat the United States Postal Service, a corporation-like independent agency with an official monopoly on the delivery of mail in the United States. Nixon signed the law on August 12, 1970. In the months leading up to passage, there were many voices raised in opposition. From the left, union leaders feared that the new corporation would be more resistant to working with them to meet workerÕs negotiating demands. From the right, critics worried that the new private corporation would have to recognize a postal labor union. This concern seemed to gain currency when the Postal Service was placed under the the Taft-Hartley Act, a law that greatly restricts the activities and power of labor unions but recognizes their rights to organize and strike. One of those most concerned about this was Edgar Eisenhower, brother of President Dwight D. Eisenhower and a very conservative Republican. He wrote Nixon with his concern that this was pro-union legislation, and Nixon was quick to try and assure him it was not. The Eisenhower and Nixon families had by then been united by the marriage of David Eisenhower and Julie Nixon, and the long-term acquaintenceship between Edgar and Nixon, and EdgarÕs influence, were probably all factors in Nixon doing something quite unusual as president - personally answering correspondence in what are clearly his own words, complete with underlinings and a first-name signature. We do not recall seeing that before.Typed Letter Signed on White House letterhead, Washington, June 3, 1970, to Edgar Eisenhower. Ò.Let me assure you that the postal reform bill proposed by the Administration would not reqiure compulsory unionism. We have proposed, as one phase of a broad plan for dealing with the unique problems faced by the Post Office Department, that postal labor-management relations be governed by the same laws that apply in the private sector - including the Taft-Hartley and Landrum-Griffin Acts - except that strikes by postal employees would continue to be illiegal, and machinery would be provided to permit resolution of negotiating impasses without resort to strikes. It obviously is not feasible to use the postal reform legislation as a vehicle for reforming the Taft-Hartley Act. Accordingly, one consequence of putting the Postal Service under Taft-Hartley would be that postal management - like management in the private sector - might have to bargain over union shop arrangements in states other than those having right-to-work laws. (Whether the Postal Service would ever agree to a union shop arrangement is another question entirely.) Our guiding principle has been that the Postal Service should be reorganized in a way that would permit it to be managed as effectively as a well-run private business. This entails a resort to the terms of the Taft-Hartley Act, but it certainly does not entail a statutory imposition of compulsory unionism. The need for workable postal reform legislation is urgent. It would be most unfortunate, in my opinion, if passage of an acceptable postal reform bill were delayed by a controversy as to whether the National Labor Relations Act should outlaw the union shop.ÓThis letter gives us a rare glimpse of Nixon as strategist during his presid [Attributes: Signed Copy]
