        Ritratto di Camillo Albertani.

      1978 - Elio Martinelli (1891-1967) eccellente pittore trentino, molto apprezzato in vita, per anni dimenticato è nato a Chizzola d’Ala, Martinelli ebbe la possibilità di studiare presso le grandi accademie di Monaco, Praga, Milano e Venezia, acquisendo non solo tecnica ma anche aprendo i propri orizzonti. Nei primi del Novecento si trasferì con la famiglia a Rovereto, dove si iscrisse alla Scuola reale Elisabettina e dove in seguito aprì uno studio nella centrale via Dante. Non aderì mai alle avanguardie. "Egli non ammetteva come valido il linguaggio non dico astrattista ma nemmeno quello di Van Gogh, di Cézanne, di Picasso", scrive il pittore Elmo Ambrosi, che conobbe Martinelli nel 1930 e andava spesso a trovarlo nel suo studio. Guardava agli artisti "tradizionali" ai grandi del Cinquecento e a Tiepolo, nel ritrarre paesaggi locali, scorci cittadini, nudi femminili, ritratti e nature morte.\rMa è soprattutto negli auto-ritratti che dimostra una grande introspezione psicologica. E’ ricordato come un uomo gentile, schivo, generoso, buono. Maestro e amico di Diego Costa fu lui a convincerlo ad abbandonare l’acquarello per passare alla pittura ad olio per poter rendere al meglio i paesaggi innevati. Diego Costa divenne famoso proprio per questi paesaggi, ma stando a studi recenti di Scudiero fu Martinelli ad influire sul Costa e non viceversa come si era sempre pensato; così come per un altro pittore, Luigi Vicentini. Al retro etichetta di catalogazione con indicazione dell’opera. Mancanze alla cornice.\r\r Formato: Olio su tela di cm 40x50 (dimensioni tela) e con cornice cm 57x68 (circa). Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo.

        The Memoirs of Richard Nixon.

      New York: Grossett & Dunlop, 1978. First edition of Nixon's memoirs. Thick octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by Nixon to Spiro Agnew, his vice president, "To Ted and Judy Agnew, With deep appreciation for their years of dedicated service to the nation. From Dick Nixon, 5-12-78." With Agnew's notes in pencil on the pages he found most interesting, with additional annotations on the individual pages denoting the specific passages. The relationship between Agnew and Nixon had grown increasingly bitter throughout their terms in office, and after Agnew resigned on October 10, 1973, they never spoke to each other again. Nixon is said to have made eight efforts to talk or meet with him--the gift of this book probably one of these--which Agnew rebuffed each time. From the library of Spiro Agnew. An exceptional association. President Richard Nixon's autobiography is an intensely personal examination of his life, public career, and White House years. With startling candor, Nixon reveals his beliefs, doubts, and behind-the-scenes decisions, and sheds new light on his landmark diplomatic initiatives, political campaigns, and historic decision to resign from the presidency. Throughout his career, Richard Nixon made extensive notes about his ideas, conversations, activities, and meetings. During his presidency, from November 1971 until April 1973, and again in June and July 1974, he kept an almost daily diary of reflections, analyses, and perceptions. These notes and diary dictations, which are quoted throughout this book, provide a unique insight into the complexities of the modern presidency and the great issues of American policy and politics.

        Max The Mouse who Made the Met

      This is an early home-made book by an eighteen year old (or 17) Tom Yakutis, who went on to a highly successful career as an animator. His later credits include Popeye (1978 - 1981), Challenge of the SuperFriends, and many stints as director, designer, or artist on episodes of such beloved cartoons as the Jetsens, the Flintstones, etc. He began his career at Disney and worked at many of the major animation studios subsequently, including Hanna and Barbera, Warner Brothers, etc. Already in this illustrated manuscript we can see the polish of his renderings, with the mice and human characters endowed with real expressiveness. The short text is not really commensurate with the quality of the illustrations, and from the many misspellings we might wonder whether Mr. Yakutis was dyslexic. The story flows crudely, but thankfully, the drawings delight and more than compensate. The setting of this mouse tale at the Met is also interesting. There is an element of humor in the tiny creature living in so grand a place, and then upending it. At the time the Met loomed larger in the American landscape as a temple of high culture, and it was a time when top singers there had a presence in popular culture as well, with singers such as Rise Stevens, Laurence Tibbett, Lily Pons, Jamila Novotna, etc. enjoying significant movie careers in popular movies.

Gr. 8° (24,5 x 17,5 cm). Orig.-Leinenbände mit roten goldgeprägten Rückenschildern sowie fotografisch illustrierten Orig.-Schutzumschlägen. [Hardcover / fest gebunden]. Vollständige Reihe in sehr gutem Zustand. - Aus dem Klappentext: \"Das \"Neue Handbuch der Literaturwissenschaft\" ist als eine moderne Gesamtdarstellung der Weltliteratur konzipiert. Es knüpft an die Tradition des nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg erschienenen alten \"Handbuchs der Literaturwissenschaft\" an und soll - wie dieses zu seiner Zeit - den heutigen Stand der Literaturwissenschaft umfassend dokumentieren. Die Möglichkeiten der Komparatistik und Literatursoziologie werden schon in der Disposition des Stoffes ausgedrückt: Das \"Neue Handbuch\" will nicht mehr eine bloße Addition von nationalen Literaturgeschichten aus diachroner Sicht sein, sondern aus synchroner Sicht die übernationalen gesellschaftlich-kulturellen Voraussetzungen und Strukturparallelen ebenso wie unmittelbaren literarischen Querverbindungen entschieden zur Geltung bringen. Die thematische Einheit der Bände und ihrer einzelnen Beiträge ist daher in übernationalen Epochenstilen und Gattungstraditionen begründet. Besonderes Augenmerk gilt dabei den Gattungstraditionen und der Ausbildung neuer Gattungen. Die einzelnen Beiträge - instruktiv bebildert und mit ausführlichen Literaturhinweisen versehen - verarbeiten im Faktischen wie im Methodischen die Ergebnisse der neuesten Forschungsrichtungen und spiegeln zugleich die in der Literaturwissenschaft andauernde Methodendiskussion wider.\" - Schutzumschläge teils etwas berieben, mit minimalen Randläsuren und/oder Knickspuren und teilweise etwas gebräunt. Besitzeinträge auf den Vorsätzen sowie einige Seiten mit schwachen, aber umfangreichen Bleistiftnotizen, ansonsten sauberes und gutes Exemplar der maßgeblichen und Maßstäbe setzenden, alle Bereiche der Literaturwissenschaft umfassenden Enzyklopädie. - Complete suite of the monumental encyclopedia of literary criticism in very good condition.

        39' x 37' x 16' (approx). AND / OR [Gallery]. June 22 to July 9, 1978

      [Seattle]: [And/or Gallery], 1978. SIGNED limited edition. No. 36 of 50 (boxed copies?), out of 400 total exhibit catalogues. Stapled brown craft-paper wrappers printed in black, with partially printed/ partially handwritten limitation info to lower corner. In painted cardboard box. Fine condition in Near Fine box (minor wear).. 22 unnumbered pages, including inside wrappers. B/w photographic images and diagrams. Catalogue: 8" x 9-3/4". Box: 9-5/8" x 12" Exhibition catalogue signed by Savinar to the front wrapper, accompanied by two sealed, clear plastic bags containing sawdust and wood chips, respectively. Each bag has been mixed with printed paper scraps, apparently clipped from newspapers or magazines and with a construction theme. "39' x 37' x 16' (approx)" was a fairly early exhibit in Savinar's now 40+ career as a Portland-based artist. The show offered a mixed media and wood sculptural interpretation of construction work and its intersections with sex, gender, and country music. The bags of construction detritus we speculate may have been byproducts of the art's creation and/or exhibition setup. Scarce. We find no record of this boxed limitation issue, and only four institutional holdings for just the catalogue alone: MOMA, SFMOMA, Portland Art Museum, and San Francisco Center for the Book.

        THE MAN WHO JAPED (Very Fine First Hardcover Edition)

      Eyre Methuen, UK 1978 - Eyre Methuen, London, UK. 1978. First hardcover edition of one of this sensational author's early Ace paperback originals, published long before he was appreciated for the genre superstar he so clearly was. This is a very fine copy with sharp, immaculate black boards, a tight, terrific spine (with a miniature bruise at the heel, barely visible, but captured on film for your inspection - see attached digital picture no. 5), clean pages that are approaching middle age with stoicism and a superb, glossy dust-jacket. VERY FINE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Photo album]: African-American Family Photos from 1937 to 1978 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

      Philadelphia, Pennsylvania/Wildwood, New Jersey, 1978. Near Fine. Three folio volumes measuring, 13" x 11.5"; 11.5" x 11.5"; and 11.5" x 10". Black cloth binder with gilt floral decorations; brown leatherette binder with yellow decorations; and a white, green, yellow, and blue leatherette binder. Contains 308 black and white, sepia, or color photographs measuring between 2" x 2" and 10" x 8" with some captions and additional ephemera from 1937 to 1978. Some edgewear and bumped corners, near fine with fine photographs.The photographs are of Malvin Hunt an African-American man from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania following family and friends through the years 1937 to 1978 showing over four decades of clothing, black and white relations, and social interactions from the time periods. The photos include posed and candid shots of different family members, friends, and couples living in West Philadelphia. Most of the candid shots are full of smiles, funny faces, and horsing around while the posed shots are usually groups of families or single individuals. One photo shows a man leaning on his knee, focused against a blurring background, looking pensive while another shows a girl throwing her hands up high in the air at the beach. The group photos are from the beach, picnics, family get-togethers, and a men's group. Some of the photos are labeled with names or little stickers with the words "ARMY" on them (presumably indicating military service during World War II) but are otherwise unmarked and in fine condition. A few pictures feature a Caucasian man arm-in-arm with the African American men, all smiling. As the years progress, more and more photos feature other Caucasian people embracing, smiling, and shaking the hands of their African American friends. Several pictures feature the post office that Hunt worked in with pictures of his coworkers wearing postmen uniforms and collecting mail from mailboxes. The army and postal service were some of the first government jobs African Americans could have in the United States. The brown leatherette photo album features pictures from Wildwood, New Jersey and an unlabeled zoo and farm. Some of the animals pictured are cows, ducks, giant tortoises, elephants, bears, and two pictures of a polar bear with "Life Sentence," written on the photographs. Most of the photos are from the beach of people dancing in the sand and lounging in the sun. A photo of two young men, one white and one black, stand tall with the words "Life guards," written off to the side and another shows four women lounging with "Housewives Paradise" written above. The albums present a fantastic timeline of the 1930s to the 1980s detailing an African-American family.
