        1980 Archive of Long Island Nude Beach Photographs

      [New York] 1980 - Approximately 700 different color snapshot images of beachgoers on a very crowded Long Island beach in 1980. Each image is approximately 3.5" x 5". Virtually all are on Kodak paper and date stamped on the back in either June or July of 1980. Condition is generally near fine or better, several have remnants from having been mounted in an album, perhaps a couple dozen have wear or staining on the emulsion, but are still easily viewable.There is no obvious evidence of exactly where the beach was, but someone more familiar with Long Island beaches would probably be able to determine that, the products, t-shirts (including one for Plato's Retreat, another for the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics), regional beers, and other clues (frisbee advertising Niagra Falls, etc.) strongly suggest a New York City-area beach, presumably on Long Island, and possibly Jones Beach. The very crowded and not particularly tidy beach was presumably clothing optional as a majority (but not all) of the sun worshippers are either partially or fully naked. The photographer seemed particularly interested in the female form. The candid images suggest that many who were happy to be photographed, with a few looking at least mildly annoyed by the attention, and a few more intimate shots that were presumably taken surreptitiously. Apparently the beach was something of a phenomenon, as a few shots show photographers, a television crew, a (possibly news) helicopter, and a boatload of gawkers on the outskirts of the beach, as well as a mounted policeman.The crowd represents a broad cross section of the population: racially, economically, age-wise, and by sexual orientation, although the ratio of images of affectionate lesbians seems a little inordinate to the rest of the images - presumably for the titillation of the (almost certainly male) photographer. Additionally there are a modest number of heterosexual affection on display, although in very few or perhaps even none of the cases do the affections displayed seem strictly pornographic.In any event a very interesting time capsule-type cross section of a clothing optional beach in Long Island definitively dated to 1980, the year of Abscam, the beginning of the presidency of Ronald Reagan, and the death of John Lennon.

Sein Sohn Jacob de Wet (1640-1697) und J.Ph. Lemke (1631-1711) waren seine Schüler. Ein Skizzenbuch Jacob Willemsz. de Wets aus dem Jahr 1636 befindet sich in Haarlem (Gemeentarchief, MS Hs 230).

        THE AUSCHWITZ ALBUM: LILLY JACOB'S ALBUM [RARE FIRST PRINTING]

      New York, Beate Klarsfeld Foundation 1980 - 1st edition, first printing. Original Paper wrappers, Oblong 4to, [128] pages, mostly illustrations. 23 x 31 cm. Text in English. The rare first edition of the what came to be one of the most important photographic records of the Holocaust. It was not offered for sale, but was published by the Klarsfeld foundation in a limited run of 1000 copies and distributed to a select list of libraries and institutions. "The Auschwitz Album is a unique photographic record of the Holocaust of the Second World War. A collection of photographs taken inside a Nazi German death camp, it is the only surviving pictorial evidence (with the exception of four surreptitious photographs taken by Sonderkommandos) of the extermination process from inside the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi concentration camp . The album has 56 pages and 193 photographs. The images follow the processing of newly arrived Hungarian Jews from Carpatho-Ruthenia in the early summer of 1944. They document the disembarkation of the Jewish prisoners from the train boxcars, followed by the selection process, performed by doctors of the SS and wardens of the camp, which separated those who were considered fit for work from those who were to be sent to the gas chambers. The photographer followed groups of those selected for work, and those selected for death to a birch grove just outside the crematoria where they were made to wait before being killed. The photographer also documented the workings of an area called Canada, where the looted belongings of the prisoners were sorted before transport to Germany. The album's survival is remarkable, given the strenuous efforts made by the Nazis to keep the ‘Final Solution’ a secret. Also remarkable is the story of its discovery. Lili Jacob (later Lili Jacob-Zelmanovic Meier) was selected for work at Auschwitz-Birkenau while the other members of her family were sent to the gas chambers. The Auschwitz camp was evacuated by the Nazis as the Soviet army approached. Jacob passed through various camps, finally arriving at the Dora concentration camp, where she was eventually liberated. Recovering from illness in a vacated barracks of the SS, Jacob found the album in a cupboard beside her bed. Inside, she found pictures of herself, her relatives, and others from her community. The coincidence was astounding, given that the Nordhausen-Dora camp was over 640 km (400 mi) away, and that over 1, 100, 000 people were killed at Auschwitz . Nazi-hunter Serge Klarsfeld visited Lili in 1980 and convinced her to donate the album to Yad Vashem. The album's contents were first published that year in the book The Auschwitz Album, edited by Klarsfeld" (Wikipedia, 2014) . Includes laid in copies of articles and promotional items from 1980 about the book. SUBJECT(S) Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) -- Pictorial works. Ex-library with usual markings.

This limited edition of Selected Plays by Tennessee Williams has been privately printed, and individually signed by the author. Tennessee Williams (* 26. März 1911 in Columbus/USA - + 25. Februar 1983 in New York City; eigentlich Thomas Lanier Williams III) war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. Den Spitznamen „Tennessee“ erhielt er von Collegefreunden an der University of Missouri, weil er den Akzent, der im Bundesstaat Tennessee gesprochen wird, sprach. Seine Großeltern, bei denen er oft und gern zu Besuch war, lebten immer noch dort, was für seinen Akzent prägend war. Das in Hollywood zunächst abgelehnte Script für Die Glasmenagerie markierte 1944 in Chicago Williams’ ersten Bühnenerfolg. Das Stück Die tätowierte Rose (seinem Lebensgefährten Frank Merlo gewidmet) erhielt den Tony Award als bestes Schauspiel. Es wurde 1950 ebenfalls in Chicago uraufgeführt. Kritiker definieren den Stil seiner Schauspiele als „Southern Gothic“ („Südstaatengotik“). 1948 und 1955 wurde Williams für seine Stücke Endstation Sehnsucht („A Streetcar Named Desire“) und Die Katze auf dem heißen Blechdach („Cat On a Hot Tin Roof“) mit dem Pulitzerpreis.

Graduale: OLdr. auf 3 echten Bünden m. 2 Leder- Schliessen, Eisenbeschlägen u Mittelrosette; Kommentarbd in OHLdr. Schönes Exemplar. Eines von 980 num. Exemplaren. - Erstklassiges Faksimile der 1312 entstandenen Prachthandschrift, eines der bedeutendsten gotischen Kunstwerke der Schweiz, entstanden im Kloster St. Katharinental bei Diessenhofen. Der Textband mit der erstmaligen und umfassenden wissenschaftlichen Bearbeitung des Graduale. Jedes der 314 Blätter sowie die nachgewiesenen Fragmente der beiden im Codex fehlenden Blätter wurden wiedergegeben. Sämtliche Blätter wurden originalgetreu randbeschnitten und danach von Hand auf echte Bünde geheftet. Der Einband besteht aus echtem Nappaleder und ist mit Eckbeschlägen, einer Mittelrosette und Schließen versehen. "Das Graduale von St. Katharinental ist eines der bedeutendsten gotischen Kunstwerke der Schweiz und von unschätzbarem Wert für die Geistes-, Liturgie-, Kunst- und Kulturgeschichte des beginnenden Spätmittelalters. Ein Graduale ist ein liturgisches Buch, das jene Gesänge mit Notation enthält, die in lateinischer Sprache nach dem Kalender wechselnd im feierlichen Hochamt vorgetragen wurden. Für den Chor waren sehr große Bände notwendig, aus denen man selbst aus größerer Entfernung noch gemeinsam singen konnte. Das erklärt auch die imposante Größe des Codex: die 628 Seiten (314 Blätter) haben ein Format von 48 x 35 cm. Aufgrund eines handschriftlichen Eintrags auf der Innenseite des Vorderdeckels lassen sich sowohl die Herkunft des Manuskripts aus dem Kloster St. Katharinental in der Nähe von Dießenhofen in der Schweiz als auch die Zeit der Vollendung der Handschrift um 1312 erschließen. . Der Bilderschmuck des Werkes besteht aus 71 zierlich gemalten, reich mit Blattgold versehenen, farbenfrischen Miniaturen und 13 ornamentalen Prachtinitialen sowie unzähligen fein verzierten kalligraphischen Anfangsbuchstaben. An der großartigen künstlerischen Ausschmückung waren mindestens sechs, wenn nicht gar sieben Hände beteiligt. Das 1312 entstandene Graduale blieb bis ins 19. Jahrhundert hinein im Kloster Katharinental in Gebrauch. Auf welchen Wegen die Handschrift in den Jahren um 1820 in den Besitz eines Konstanzer Antiquars gelangte, ist bis heute unbekannt. Dieser machte das Graduale zum Mittelpunkt seines Museums. Er war es vermutlich auch, der die beiden am reichsten mit Miniaturen versehenen Seiten extrahierte. Sie befinden sich heute, in mehrere Teile zerlegt, bei verschiedensten Institutionen und auch in Privatbesitz. Schließlich tauchte die Handschrift Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts in England auf, wo sie bis 1958 verblieb. In diesem Jahr wurde der Nachlaß des bedeutenden Sammlers Sir Charles Dyson Perrins versteigert, worunter sich auch das wertvolle Graduale befand. Diese einmalige Chance der Rückführung nutzten mit vereinten Kräften der Schweizer Bundesrat, die Gottfried-Keller-Stiftung und der Kanton Thurgau durch eine bereitwillige Zusage finanzieller Beteiligung. So konnte das Meisterwerk am 9. Dezember 1958 erworben werden und wird seither wieder in der Schweiz aufbewahrt."

        1980 Archive of Long Island Nude Beach Photographs

      [New York]. 1980. Approximately 700 different color snapshot images of beachgoers on a very crowded Long Island beach in 1980. Each image is approximately 3.5" x 5". Virtually all are on Kodak paper and date stamped on the back in either June or July of 1980. Condition is generally near fine or better, several have remnants from having been mounted in an album, perhaps a couple dozen have wear or staining on the emulsion, but are still easily viewable.There is no obvious evidence of exactly where the beach was, but someone more familiar with Long Island beaches would probably be able to determine that, the products, t-shirts (including one for Plato's Retreat, another for the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics), regional beers, and other clues (frisbee advertising Niagra Falls, etc.) strongly suggest a New York City-area beach, presumably on Long Island, and possibly Jones Beach. The very crowded and not particularly tidy beach was presumably clothing optional as a majority (but not all) of the sun worshippers are either partially or fully naked. The photographer seemed particularly interested in the female form. The candid images suggest that many who were happy to be photographed, with a few looking at least mildly annoyed by the attention, and a few more intimate shots that were presumably taken surreptitiously. Apparently the beach was something of a phenomenon, as a few shots show photographers, a television crew, a (possibly news) helicopter, and a boatload of gawkers on the outskirts of the beach, as well as a mounted policeman.The crowd represents a broad cross section of the population: racially, economically, age-wise, and by sexual orientation, although the ratio of images of affectionate lesbians seems a little inordinate to the rest of the images - presumably for the titillation of the (almost certainly male) photographer. Additionally there are a modest number of heterosexual affection on display, although in very few or perhaps even none of the cases do the affections displayed seem strictly pornographic.In any event a very interesting time capsule-type cross section of a clothing optional beach in Long Island definitively dated to 1980, the year of Abscam, the beginning of the presidency of Ronald Reagan, and the death of John Lennon. .

        Selected Plays., Illustrated by Herbert Tauss.

      Franklin Mint Corporation, Pennsylvania, The Franklin Library, 1980 - 565 Seiten mit Lesebändchen, die unteren Ecken des Einbandes minimalst bestossen, der Goldschnitt mit kleinen Kartzern, das Buch ansonsten sauber und frisch, auf dem Vorsatz Signatur des Autors. This limited edition of Selected Plays by Tennessee Williams has been privately printed, and individually signed by the author. Tennessee Williams (* 26. März 1911 in Columbus/USA - + 25. Februar 1983 in New York City; eigentlich Thomas Lanier Williams III) war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. Den Spitznamen „Tennessee" erhielt er von Collegefreunden an der University of Missouri, weil er den Akzent, der im Bundesstaat Tennessee gesprochen wird, sprach. Seine Großeltern, bei denen er oft und gern zu Besuch war, lebten immer noch dort, was für seinen Akzent prägend war. Das in Hollywood zunächst abgelehnte Script für Die Glasmenagerie markierte 1944 in Chicago Williams’ ersten Bühnenerfolg. Das Stück Die tätowierte Rose (seinem Lebensgefährten Frank Merlo gewidmet) erhielt den Tony Award als bestes Schauspiel. Es wurde 1950 ebenfalls in Chicago uraufgeführt. Kritiker definieren den Stil seiner Schauspiele als „Southern Gothic" („Südstaatengotik"). 1948 und 1955 wurde Williams für seine Stücke Endstation Sehnsucht („A Streetcar Named Desire") und Die Katze auf dem heißen Blechdach („Cat On a Hot Tin Roof") mit dem Pulitzerpreis.

        The ultimate fully signed J D Salinger letter commenting on his seminal book "The Catcher in the Rye": "I do indeed take your brother Tim's assessment of The Catcher in the Rye as 'subjective' as a compliment "

      [Cornish, New Hampshire?], March 10, 1980. 8vo. "Rare Typed letter signed ""J D Salinger"", one page, 8vo, March 10, 1980. In part: ""I do indeed take your brother Tim's assessment of 'The Catcher in the Rye' as 'subjective' as a compliment. A high and entirely comfortable compliment. It happens that I know a couple of people who privately, lonelily reconstitute words to suit themselves, finding the usual context unacceptable or unlikeable...He then goes into a rather detailed explanation of incursions on his privacy. Because of the litigious nature of Mr. Salinger when alive and possibly his family now, only parts of the letter will be quoted here. Includes 16 pages of copies, never before released, which include letters to and from Eagleson. In September of 2015 a single page letter of Salinger mentioning only ""Zooey"" and not nearly of the content of the one here ,fetched $27,500 . In over 25 years at major Public auctions not letter has ever been offered that directly quoted the title of ""The Catcher in the Rye"". Many of his best letters are not signed signed with pseudonyms, or some abbreviated signature. Fine."
