        I travestiti

      Roma: Essedì Editrice, , 1972. Rilegato (hardback). Ottimo (Fine). Testi e fotografie in bianco e nero di Lisetta Carmi. Una nota di Elvio Fachinelli. Inserto di 16 pagine di carta rosa sottile con riproduzione di foto e lettere dattiloscritte che i protagonisti del libro inviarono alla fotografa. Testi in italiano e inglese tradotti da Pietro Ferrari. 4to. pp. 164. Ottimo (Fine). Dorso con piccola mancanza, leggere fioriture alle prime pagine. Prima edizione (First Edition). "I travestiti si mascherano, è vero, ma lo fanno per necessità. Hanno però il coraggio di fare quello che fanno e di affronatre una realtà spesso drammatica e violenta. Per molti di loro non esiste un'alternativa di lavoro: come uomini hanno un aspetto troppo femminile, come donne hanno l'impedimento dello stato anagrafico maschile. Sopportano stati di solitudine incredibile proprio perchè da una parte la società li ricerca e dall'altra li isola, li obbliga praticamente a vivere in ghetti (a Genova il loro quartiere è proprio l'antico ghetto degli ebrei), ha paura di riconoscersi in loro. Li usa, li paga, li giudica: ignorando volutamente che sono esseri umani. Ma io credo che il giudizio che noi diamo degli altri è quasi sempre un giudizio che noi diamo di noi stessi: ciò che negli altri ci spaventa è in noi. E difendiamo noi stessi sempre offendendo quella parte di noi che rifiutiamo" (Lisetta Carmi, dalla quarta di copertina)

        The Quality of Hurt, with Photograph of Ossie Davis

      Doubleday, Garden City 1972 - Himes's autobiography, inscribed to Ossie Davis, who co-wrote and directed the 1970 film Cotton Comes to Harlem, based on Himes's novel of the same name. Inscribed: "For Ossie Davis, Salut et Fraternité/ Chester Himes." Himes's series of hard-boiled crime novels featuring Gravedigger Jones and Coffin Ed Johnson used the genre to explore and reveal little-known aspects of the black culture of postwar Harlem in much the same way that Walter Mosley's novels have done for the black subculture of postwar Los Angeles. Because Himes lived most of his adult life in France, books signed by him are relatively uncommon. Significant association copies of books by Himes are genuinely rare. Here offered together with an original photograph of Davis on the set of the film, with actors Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St. Jacques. The book is stamped "Property of Ossie & Ruby Davis" on the first blank, below the inscription; a near fine copy in a supplied, near fine dust jacket. The 5-1/2" x 7" silver gelatin print of Davis by John Rodriguez is dated 8/1969 and is matted and framed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

      London: The Arcadia Press, 1972 - Folio. Original half vellum, handmade "seaweed" paper boards, spine with gilt titles direct, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, green endpapers, calligraphic-style text printed in green and black on handmade seaweed paper, made using a process in which seaweed is pressed into the paper, reproducing with striking likeness the transluscent quality of submarine flora. With the original cream paper slipcase. Two tiny white specks to front free endpaper due to production flaw; slipcase with minor rubbing to extremities and light bowing to fore edges. A bright and fresh copy. With 10 tipped-in colour plates. Signed limited edition, number 86 of 110 copies signed by the illustrator Errol Le Cain, the calligrapher David A. Howells, and the paper maker Philip H. Rowson. The contrast of Le Cain's boldly colourful illustrations with the delicate quality of the pressed seaweed peppered throughout the text lends itself particularly well to the subject of Coleridge's epic poem.

        President Nixon assures financier Jack Dreyfus "that over the next four years I shall do everything I possibly can to make a record which all Americans, regardless of party, will be proud of as we celebrate America's 200th Birthday in 1976" - 20 months after writing this, Nixon resigned

      Washington, DC, November 30, 1972. 7" x 10.5". "Typed Letter Signed ""RN"" as President, 1 page, 7"" x 10.5"". Washington, November 30, 1962. On pale green White House stationery with the blind embossed presidential seal at top center. To financier Jack Dreyfus. With original postmarked White House envelope. Fine condition.In full, ""As I look back to the results of November 7, I want you to know how deeply grateful I am for all that you did to help us win one of the greatest landslide victories in American political history. Only with your help were we able to get our message across to the millions of voters who supported us.""I hope I soon will have the opportunity to thank you personally for your support. In the meantime, I can only assure you that over the next four years I shall do everything I possibly can to make a record which all Americans, regardless of party, will be proud of as we celebrate America's 200th Birthday in 1976. With appreciation and best wishes.""Financier Jack Dreyfus (1913-2009) was the founder of the Dreyfus Fund. In 1964, Life magazine called him the “Maverick Wizard Behind the Wall Street Lion,” in reference to the emblem of his fund and its aggressive marketing. Dreyfus, it said, was “the most singular and effective personality to appear in Wall Street since the days of Joseph Kennedy and Bernard Baruch.” His paternal grandfather was a first cousin of Alfred Dreyfus, the protagonist of the late 19th-century anti-Semitic scandal known as the Dreyfus Affair. Dreyfus sold his mutual fund company in 1970 and established the Dreyfus Health Foundation to pursue other medical applications for Dilantin which had cured his depression in the 1960s. In 2000, Dreyfus said that an account in The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon by Anthony Summers (New York: Viking, 2000) that he gave Dilantin to Richard Nixon in 1968 was correct. Dreyfus said he gave Nixon a bottle of 1,000 capsules of 100 milligrams each ''when his mood wasn't too good,'' and later gave him another bottle of 1,000 capsules."

Studie aus blauen Aquarellfarben über Bleistift von Wolfgang Lenz, re. u. sign. u. dat. \"1972\". Ca. 12 x 26 cm. - Unter entspiegeltem Glas mit Passepartout neu gerahmt. Rahmung im Preis inbegriffen. Auf leicht gebräuntem und minimal stockfleckigem Papier. - Die Aquarellfarben hat Lenz zart und dezent eingesetzt, die Konturen der Gebäude dagegen klar und präzise. - Wolfgang Lenz: Würzburg 17.3.1925 - 1.1.2014 Würzburg. Lenz studierte in den Jahren 1949-1958 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in München und verbrachte während dieser Zeit ein einjähriges Studienjahr in Rom. Lenz, der in vorbildlicher Manier alle malerischen und druckgraphischen Techniken beherrscht, trat besonders bei der malerischen Ausgestaltung repräsentativer Räume hervor. In Würzburg war die Rekonstruktion des im Krieg zerstörten Spiegelkabinettes der Residenz sein Verdienst. Mit der Ausgestaltung des Würzburger Ratssaales lässt er die Stadtgeschichte den Volksvertretern bildhaft vor Augen treten. Über Würzburg hinaus erlangten seine Ausgestaltungen des Hessischen Staatstheaters Wiesbaden, des Restaurants im Münchner Prinzregententheater und der Bayerischen Landesvertretung in Berlin Berühmtheit. Sein in der Würzburger Städtischen Sammlung befindliches Gemälde der mahnenden Brückenheiligen vor dem zerstörten Würzburg (Würzburger Totentanz - Zum 16.März 1945, 1970) stellt ein eindrucksvolles Zeugnis gegen Krieg und Gewalt dar. Eine besondere Auszeichnung erfuhr der Künstler 1992 als Ehrengast der Villa Massimo in Rom. Lenz zählt zu den herausragenden zeitgenössischen Künstlerpersönlichkeiten der Stadt.

A brutal and non-judgmental examination of the man who changed not only the nature of comedy, but the nature of performance itself. 27 x 41 inches (105 x 89 cm), folded. Fine.

A very uncommon proof, preceding his breakthrough novel, The World According to Garp, by six years, and dating from a period when proofs were not commonly collected, so few will likely have survived. This is the earliest John Irving proof we've seen. First Edition. Softcover. Near Fine.

        From matrix mechanics and wave mechanics to unified quantum mechanics Autograph manuscript and typescript signed

      1972. Van der Waerden, Bartel Leendert (1903-96). From matrix mechanics and wave mechanics to unified quantum mechanics. Autograph manuscript and typescript signed. 26, 10pp. 1972. Approx. 298 x 218 mm. Minor rust stains from paper clips, but very good. The Dutch mathematician B. L. van der Waerden, a colleague of Werner Heisenberg at the University of Leipzig, made important contributions to quantum mechanics, the most significant being his invention in 1929 of spinor calculus “to prove the relativistic invariance of the Dirac equation in the spirit of classic tensor analysis” (Zeidler, Quantum Field Theory III: A Bridge between Mathematicians and Physicists, p. 285). He was also the author of Moderne Algebra (1930), considered to be the most influential textbook on abstract algebra published in the twentieth century. In the above paper van der Waerden described the events in March and April 1926 that led to the merging of matrix mechanics and wave mechanics into a new unified quantum mechanics. Van der Waerden presented the above paper at the symposium on “The Development of the Physicist’s Conception of Nature in the Twentieth Century,” held in 1972 in honor of Paul Dirac’s 70th birthday; the paper, along with the discussion that followed, was published the following year on pp. 278-289 of The Physicist’s Conception of Nature (1973), edited by Jagdish Mehra. The manuscript consists of 18 sheets in van der Waerden’s hand augmented with a reproduced typescript transcription of a letter from Wolfgang Pauli to Pascual Jordan written on April 12, 1926; at the end is a typed transcript of the discussion held at the end of van der Waerden’s presentation, heavily edited in Mehra’s hand.

Autograph manuscript signed. 55ff., written on lined paper, rectos only, in black and blue ink with numerous autograph emendations mostly in red. [1972.] 303 x 211 mm. Staple holes in upper left corner, one or two tiny rust stains, but very good.Salam, one of the leading figures in 20th century theoretical physics, made notable contributions to quantum mechanics and quantum field theory, receiving a share of the 1979 Nobel Prize in physics for his contribution to the electroweak unification theory (the unified description of the weak and electromagnetic interactions between two elementary particles). He was the first Pakistani and first Muslim to receive a Nobel Prize in science, and the second person from a Muslim country, after Anwar Sadat (Peace, 1977), to receive any type of Nobel award. n 1972 Salam and several other distinguished physicists helped to organize a “Symposium on the Development of the Physicist’s Conception of Nature in the Twentieth Century,” held in Trieste in honor of Paul Dirac’s 70th birthday. The present paper, which Salam delivered at the symposium, was published on pp. 430-446 of The Physicist’s Conception of Nature, edited by Jagdish Mehra.
