London: Francis Edwards and Carta Press, 1973. Limited First Edition, letter ?A? of ten copies lettered A-J that were specially produced for the personal use of Tooley.

Ronald Vere Tooley, considered the effective founder of the modern antiquarian map trade, was born and raised in London. After serving in World War I where he was one of the few in his regiment to survive the Battle of Cambrai, he joined the London booksellers Francis Edwards Ltd where he produced catalogues of rare books and old maps throughout the 1920s. After an attempt at his own business in the 1930s, Tooley rejoined Francis Edwards following World War II. Tooley devoted much of his time to the history of cartography and was considered an authority on early maps and cartographers. He authored multiple books on the subject and founded the Map Collectors' Circle, which published a series of monographs on historical cartography from 1963-1975. The festschrift, My Head is a Map, compiled in 1973 for his 75th birthday by British Library Map Librarians Helen Wallis and Sarah Tyacke, celebrated his contributions to the world of antiquarian maps.

        Hustlers Convention

      New York: Harmony Books, 1973. First Edition. Nearly pristine copy of this absolutely seminal work, a book-length jive masterpiece chronicling street-life in Harlem from the Fifties through the Seventies, glorifying the violent lives of crap-shooters, pimps, drug dealers and gang-bangers. Nuriddin recorded the work (also under the nom-de-guerre "Lightnin' Rod") in 1973; no promotional copy for that recording is present here, leading us to assume that the book preceded the album by some months. Among hip-hop afficionados, Hustlers Convention (in its recorded version) is widely cited as one of the "lost masterpieces" of rap music, preceding Sugar Hill Gang's Rapper's Delight (generally hailed as the first true "rap" album) by some six years. In a 2014 profile of Nuriddin in The Guardian, critic Graeme Thomson calls Hustlers Convention "...a crucial but largely overlooked link in hip-hop's evolutionary chain. The genre's pioneers - Melle Mel, Grandmaster Caz, Fab 5 Freddy - knew it by heart. Grandmaster Flash played it at early block parties, and it was later sampled by the Beastie Boys, Wu Tang Clan and countless others...[the album is] a premonition of gangsta rap, a vivid depiction of ghetto life lived large, complete with shoot-em-up sound-effects..." Indeed, both the cadence and the ethos of much early hip-hop is evident in Nuriddin's metrical six-line stanzas, in which one finds a clear link between the "toasting" tradition which preceded him and the rap tradition which followed. In the opening stanzas, for example, we encounter rhymes which could just as easily have been written and rapped by Big Bank Hank or Melle Mel : I've seldom lost, 'cause my game was so boss, I mean I had my shit down pat, and I was runnin' through bitches, like rags to riches, 'cause that's where my heart was at Yes, I was a down stud's dream a hustler supreme, there wasn't no game that I couldn't play, and if I caught a dude cheatin' I would give him a beatin' and I might even blow 'em away! Though released by the music division of a major trade publisher (Harmony was a subsidiary of Crown), the book is surprisingly uncommon, with no others located in commerce (2014) and few copies in university special collections. We would suggest that copies in collectible condition, such as this one, are seldom-seen. A documentary of Nuriddin's life, also titled Hustlers Convention, has been scheduled for release in Spring, 2015, directed by Mike Todd and executive produced by rapper ChuckD. Paperback original. Octavo. Illustrated card wrappers; 125, (2)pp; author portrait and promotional blurb at rear. Minimal external wear; slight soil to upper edge of text block; still a tight, apparently unread copy, Near Fine.

        XILOGRAFIE

      EDITRICE SARDA FOSSATARO 1973 - RACCOLTA IN CARTELLA DI 26 XILOGRAFIE DELL'AUTORE. LA CARTELLINA PRESENTA LIEVE BRUNITURA E LIEVI SEGNI DEL TEMPO. LE XILOGRAFIE, ALL'INTERNO, SONO PERFETTE. MISURE: 49X34 cm. AVVERTENZA: Nessuna delle ventisei xilografie contenute in questa cartella, è nella misura del legno originale: tutte sono o ridotte o ingrandite. Remo Branca uno dei nostri maggiori incisori di fama internazionale, ed è sardo nell'espressione severa, chiusa dell'immagine, come nella sua forma robusta e aspra, senza mezzi termini. Alcuni suoi capolavori si impongono all'osservatore e li ricordiamo volentieri. Già nel Discorso dell'acqua viva del 1923 sopprimendo qualsiasi elemento accessorio e modellando e chiaroscurando con forza, l'artista ci proietta un senso di mistero profondo, che si riassume nella fermezza del gesto di Cristo e nella concentrazione dell'ascolto dell'eroica Samaritana, L'uomo di Orgòsolo (1934) è figura a mezzo busto che si erge immediata e potente sul fondo di un paese povero, espressione di una volontà indomabile di un mondo arcano. Né la giovinezza distrae lo spirito del Branca ché nelle Ragazze di Orgòsolo (1934), che balzano da un fondo di pietre, i loro sguardi pensosi e tristi denunciano immediatamente il mondo cupo e non transeunte cercato dall'artista. In una vasta composizione del 1938, in quella Fratelli di Gallura, il tema si sviluppa ulteriormente: il dramma si concentra nelle forme rudi, viste tra le ombre dense di sprazzi di luce, come negli occhi fissi, intensi, rivelatori di un passato di sofferenze e preannunciatori di un oscuro avvenire; e tutto il mondo di unaterra, di un popolo ci è davanti. Per gli anni più vicini a noi pensiamo al Crepuscolo (1966), dove ci appre la bellezza suprema ma severa di una giovane donna a mezzo busto, lo sguardo girato, il capo avvolto in un panno nero, che domina, figlia di un popolo eccezionale, la campagna del suo paese all'ora del tramonto. La sintesi, le masse, le luci e le ombre sono i mezzi sovrani di espressione del Branca, il quale non racconta ma rappresenta, magnificando la sua gente, ma in modo tale che esorbitando da caratteri locali di razza e di costumi, questa viene ad appartenere ad una grande umanità. L'ultimo capolavoro, La Madre dell'Uccisore (1971): una testa immensa nell'angusto riquadro del foglio, un volto impenetrabile di dolore, suggellato da repressa ribellione, da sentimento materno, forse anche da un senso di condanna, l'ombra folta - che è lutto incancellabile - appena spezzata da vividi lampeggianti di luce, che servono a dare vieppiù risalto a questa tragica maschera umana, nel fondo il taglio di una collina profilata di croci e alberi. E' una immagine terribilmente impressionante, indimenticabile, quale di colpo (non vi sono cincischiature, pentimenti) può creare un grande artista. Il quale ha affrontato un altro tema di per se stesso arduo, quello del ritratto del Pontefice Regnante paolo VI (1970), ed è un'altra opera straordinaria per la penetrazione del pensiero in una forma davvero sarda, tra fasci di luce su un ciclo notturno, con effetto di energica vitalità. Ma il Branca è anche storico dell'incisione, che oltre ad altre opere di storia e di critica, ha ora portato a termine in tre volumi un corpus sui Maestri incisori di Sardegna (Editrice Sarda, Cagliari 195 / 1973), e che offre una quantità di geniali osservazioni, di notizie preziose, di documenti in genere non facilmente rintracciabili o alrimenti destinati a perire. Né vogliamo tralasciare di mettere in rilievo il gusto che impronta la stampa dei tre grossi volumi e in particolare rivelato dalle piccole deliziose incisioni che fanno da iniziale , da capi in testa, da finalini, o che in alcuni casi scendono deliziosamente lungo i margini delle pagine. Un'opera destinata ad ogni Gabinetto delle Stampe e a quegli amatori, forse non così comuni, che uniscono con la cultura un genuino senso dell'arte. Giulio R. Ansaldi dell'Accademia del Pantheon - Roma LE TAVOLE SONO: LA VIA DELLA FONTANA N [Attributes: First Edition]

In publisher's red cloth, with dust jacket. 507, (1) p. Kornai's book about the problems of mathematical planning in an economic point of view. It was first published in Hungarian 1965 and 1967 in English. János Kornai (b. 1928) was the first economist behind the Iron Curtain who published critical studies on the Soviet-style command economics of Eastern Europe. Kornai studied philosophy in Budapest, but - according to his memoirs - he chose to be an economics after reading Marx's Capital. Started his career as a journalist and soon became the economics editor of the largest Communist newspaper. After a few years, in 1955 he was fired for lack of Communist convictions. In 1956 he participated in the Hungarian Revolution. His early work "Overcentralization in Economic Administration" (1957) was published in English in 1959 and his critical studies on central planning started to spread in the West and his career took off outside Hungary. Kornai received many invitations to visit foreign institutions, but he was denied a passport by the Hungarian authorities and was not allowed to travel until 1963. Later he became visiting professor at the London School of Economics, at Yale, Stanford, Princeton and other Universities all over the world, and in 1986 Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

        A day after telling the world that the United States has concluded an agreement to end the Vietnam War, he thanks a loyal Republican Congressman for his support<i> ?now that we have finally achieved peace with honor in Vietnam ? I also am confident that history will prove you to have been right ??</i>

      Typed Letter Signed ?RN? as President, 1 page, 6.75? x 8.75?. On pale green White House stationery with blind embossed presidengtial seal at top center. Washington, D.C., January 24, 1973. To Congressman C.W. Bill Young. Fine condition. In full, ?Now that we have finally achieved peace with honor in Vietnam, I particularly want you to know how much I have appreciated the support you have given during these difficult years to the policies that made that achievement possible. Without those in the Congress who stood steadfastly as you did, we could not have won the settlement that I announced last night. I know how great the pressures have been. I know the sort of attacks to which you have been subjected, as a result of following your conscience. But I also am confident that history will prove you to have been right, and that in the years to come you can look back with pride on the stern test nobly met.?President Nixon spoke at 10:01 PM in the Oval Office at the White House on January 23, 1974. His address was broadcast live on nationwide radio and television. An advance text of the President's address was released on the same day. A copy of the text is included. Before delivering the address, the President met separately with members of the Cabinet and six members of the bipartisan leadership of the Congress. On January 24, 1973, the day he wrote and signed the letter here offered, President Nixon met with the expanded bipartisan leadership of the Congress to discuss the agreement. On the same day, the White House released the following related material: the texts of the agreement and protocol to the agreement; the transcript of a news briefing on the agreement by Henry A. Kissinger, Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs; and fact sheets on the basic elements of the agreement, the International Commission of Control and Supervision, and the Four-Party Joint Military Commission. Republican Charles William (Bill) Young represented Florida in the House of Representatives from 1971-2014. At the time of his death, he was the senior Republican in Congress, having served over 42 years. Young was a delegate to the Republican National Conventions which nominated Nixon in 1968 and 1972, Ford in 1976, and Reagan in 1984. He had supported President Nixon during the House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings publicly suggesting, ?Maybe a scenario has been worked out in advance,? with all 21 committee Democrats having already decided to impeach the President.

        Jerusalem Faces

      1973. KOKOSCHKA, Oskar. Jerusalem Faces. Complete set of 6 original lithographs by Kokoschka. Atlas folio, loose as issued in original grey cloth-covered folio box, with original grey cardboard shipping container. Preserved in a second beige linen folding case. London: Marlborough Graphics and George Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1973.Copy No. 2 of 150, with each portrait signed by the artist in pencil. The portraits were created by the artist during his visit to Jerusalem in April, 1973. Kokoschka&#39;s bold strokes of light, line and shape dissolve facial features, producing "psychological portraits," in which the "soul" of the sitter was thought to be laid bare. He claimed that he captured "closed personalities, so full of tension" of his sitters. In the present series, Kokoschka&#39;s lines reluctantly converge into descriptions of people marked not only by tradition and history, but by the immediate social events of their time. The subjects are: Golda Meir, Dr. Shimon Agranat, President of the Israel Supreme-Court, His Beatitude Benedictos I, Greek-Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, Moyshe Dayan, Minister of Defence, Sheik Mustafa Khalil El-Ansari, Chief Warden of the Mosque of Omar, and Teddy Kollek, Mayor of Jerusalem.The format of the lithographs is 650 x 500 mm (i.e. 25.5 x 19.75 inches). They were printed from the stone on handmade Japan paper by the Graphische Anstalt J.E. Wolfensberger AG, Zurich. In pristine condition.
