        Original Photograph of Fidel Castro, Taken in East Berlin While Meeting German Civilans.

      Berlin 1972 - One (1) large print press photographs of Fidel Castro taken in Berlin during his tour of East Germany to establish friendship and cooperation between German's Free Democratic Party (GDR) and the Cuban Republic. Photograph measures 40,5 x 30 cm. Very Good Condition, excellent, a rare vintage colour photograph. Fidel Castro is seen here greeting German civilians, after having made a formal public address. This striking vintage photograph shows prominent Communist leader Fidel Castro as he was gaining an important political alliance and eliciting foreign civilian support during his first tour of East Germany. Fidel Castro's visit to Berlin began on June 13, 1972 and at various points addressed the border guards that policed the Berlin Wall to prevent East Germans from escaping to the West. At Brandenburg gate on June 14 in the afternoon he addressed the men charged with shooting East Germans fleeing to West Germany as "the courageous and self-denying border guards of the Free Democratic Party (GDR) People's Army who stand guard in the front line of the entire-socialist community." Later in the evening Premier Castro addressed the Nikolay Bezarin Barracks in East Berlin. Castro spent most of his visit accompanied by Erich Honecker, leader of the German Democratic Republic. In 1974, in Havana, Erich Honecker and Fidel Castro signed an "agreement on cooperation between the German SED and the Cuban Communist Party for the years 1974-1975. The photographer is Hans-Joachim Spremberg (1943-1978), commonly known as Joachim Spremberg, a German photojournalist in East Germany. He was born in Berlin, and documented life in East Berlin, as well as the construction of the Berlin TV tower. He was selected as official photographer for several high state occasions with Free Democratic Party (GDR) Party, and also with communist politician Walter Ulbricht. He died in a helicopter crash at Wadi Suf al-Jin in Libya. Hans-Joachim Spremberg (* 8. Dezember 1943 in Berlin; - 6. M

        Osamu Nagahama: Atsuku Nagai Yoru no Shima (The Island of Long Hot Night) (lacking obi)

      Haga Shoten, Tokyo 1972 - First edition, first printing. Soft cover. Printed stiff wrappers; with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs by Osamu Nagahama. Text (in Japanese) by Mineo Higashi. 140 pp., with 136 black-and-white and monochromatic plates in cyan and green. 7-1/4 x 10-1/4 inches.[Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume III. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2014)]. Near Fine (moderate creasing and wear to the extremities) in Very Good dust jacket (pronounced wear to the extremities, but intact), missing obi. From Parr & Badger: "Atsuku Nagai Yoru no Shima focuses upon the vexed subject of sexual relations between local Japanese women and American servicemen on Okinawa." The presence of the US military on Okinawa was the focus of much Japanese resentment, especially during the 1960s and 1970s, when the Vietnam war was also an issue. Shots of barbed wire fences and notices marked 'Restricted Area,' as well as the sheer sleaziness of the clubs and bars where such encounters take place, make the resentment quite clear. The book is, of course, shot in the familiar grunge Provoke style, but it has a flamboyant extra twist, with groups of images being presented as tinted monochrome -- green and blue -- rather that straight black and white."

        WOOD ENGRAVINGS OF ERIC RAVILIOUS [Introduction by J. M. Richards]

      Kensington The Lion and Unicorn Press, Royal College of Art 1972 - First edition, LIMITED, number 80 of the second issue, which was limited to 500 copies. With 113 leaves displaying over 400 of Eric Ravilious' engravings, each leaf printed one side only, with fold-out index leaves. The title-page, front free-fly and colophon page also decorated with Ravilious engravings. Tall folio, in the original binding by Henry Brooks Ltd. of course gray cloth with a large woodcut block on the upper cover in black, the spine lettered in gilt, decorated endpapers. 19pp., 113 ff., 4 ff. index, 2ff. pp. A fine copy, the boards very slightly bowed and with trivial aging, internally very fine and as new. FIRST EDITION AND AN IMPORTANT CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ OF ENGRAVER ERIC RAVILIOUS AND ARGUABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK OF THE PRESS. Six of the over 420 engravings here were reproduced from Ravilious' original blocks, the others (for which the blocks likely no longer existed) were painstakingly reproduced from other sources, all are in their original size and the collection comprises all of his engraved works which could be found and should be considered as complete as could be made possible. The print work was beautifully done by the Curwen Press on Grosvenor Chater's Basingwerk parchment. Ravilious engraved most of these illustrations for books and other publications. His first commission, in 1926, was to illustrate a novel for Jonathan Cape. He went on to produce work both for large companies such as the Lanston Corporation and the smaller, less commercial "Fine Presses", such as the Golden Cockerel, the Curwen Press and the Cresset Press. A handful of the engravings included here were never previously published. Ravilious' career was cut tragically short when, while working as a War Artist, the RAF patrol he was flying on failed to return. After four days of searching, he and the plane's four crewmen were declared lost in action. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Partita [Inscribed and annotated by the composer Kyzysztof Penderecki and its dedicatee, pianist Felicja Blumental

      [3 vols] Full score and two soloist's parts which have been inscribed by Penderecki to the work's dedicatee and first performer, Felicja Blumental, who has also annotated the score for performance throughout with additional corrections in Penderecki's hand. All three scores are very much working copies which have endured the indignities of annotation and preparation for performance by Blumental under the guidance of the composer with resultant damage and emendation, including sections of score cut and reinserted in new positions. 1. Full score bound in card wrappers with old staining throughout, first leaf torn with loss at head of page affecting beginning of the composer's inscription which dates from April 1972. Heavily annotated throughout in extrovert fashion at least partly by the composer in the characteristic purple felt tip pen with which he made the inscription on the first page. One leaf of inserted printed music score apparently relating to the cadenza is laid in with additional notation at number '36' also in Penderecki's hand. 2. Solisten-Spielpartitur, inscribed to Felicja in Lisbon in Polish, 18 January 1972, three weeks before the premiere given in Rochester, New York, on February 7th. In this score the harpsichord notation is systematically and carefully annotated in order to allow the soloist to identify her position within the piece with additional dynamics markings and instructions often naming instruments playing alongside the soloist and providing numbers to count by. There is additional notation for the Cadenza and an additional printed insert at number '36'. A cut in the final section is registered by two pages being clipped together before a set of careful instructions for the pick-up after the cut. 3. [Solisten-Spielpartitur] sol score heavily used and amateurishly repaired with sellotape, lacking wrappers, annotated throughout, mostly reproducing the changes and additions introduced into the first solo score above. This score shows signs of very heavy use suggesting perhaps that it was used by Blumental as her main performing score in order to protect the copy inscribed to her by the composer, effectively the dedication copy above. Usual alterations at number '36'. Penderecki wrote his Partita for the pianist Felicja Blumental who was married to Penderecki¿s close friend, the painter and art collector Markus Mizne, persuading her to play his Partita on a harpsichord instead of her usual instrument. The work was first performed in the prestigious Eastman School of Music and revised in the early 1990s. Blumental premiered the work under Walter Hendl but recorded the Partita several times under the baton of the composer, notably for EMI in 1972 when she will have used these scores. The Partita has been described as drawing on 'the graphic ideas of Paul Klee, with interpenetrating sections varying in colour and structure, and Yves Klein, with static sections of vibrating ¿sound space¿ or of resonance alone, which had inspired the composer in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and on the Baroque concertante tradition, in which the concertino, ingeniously complemented by amplified guitars, is opposed to the full ensemble sound.'

In apparent fine condition.In full, ""Recently I signed H.R. 10243, an Act to establish an Office of Technology Assessment within and responsible to the Legislative Branch of the Government. I thought you might like to have the enclosed ceremonial pen as a memento of this legislation becoming public law.""The Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) was created by Congress in 1972 when lawmakers expressed alarm that they couldn’t understand and properly legislate complicated science and technology issues. It ceased to exist in 1995 when it was defunded, a victim of Congress's Contract with America to shrink government. According to Jathan Sadowski in the Atlantic (October 26, 2012), OTA was started because “Congress recognized that it could not afford to wander blindly forward without an organization that would bridge technical expertise and political decision-making.” To prevent “capture by a particular political party,” OTA was overseen by a balanced bipartisan congressional Board with six Members from both the House and the Senate.OTA's purpose was to provide Congressional members and committees with objective and authoritative analysis of complex scientific and technical issues. Topics addressed by OTA included terrorism, computer security and privacy, nuclear proliferation, the effectiveness of satellite and space programs, genetic engineering, the environmental impact of various technologies, and the role U.S. forces should play in United Nations peacekeeping operations.Republican R. Lawrence Coughlin (1929 - 2001) represented Pennsylvania in the House of Representatives from 1969 - 1993."
