Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: Ill Seen, Ill SaidAuthor: Samuel Beckett - Samuel Barclay Beckett was an Irish avant-garde novelist, playwright, theatre director, and poet, who lived in Paris for most of his adult life and wrote in both English and French. His work offers a bleak, tragicomic outlook on human nature, often coupled with black comedy and gallows humour. Beckett is widely regarded as among the most influential writers of the 20th century. Strongly influenced by James Joyce, he is considered one of the last modernists. As an inspiration to many later writers, he is also sometimes considered one of the first postmodernists. He is one of the key writers in what Martin Esslin called the "Theatre of the Absurd". His work became increasingly minimalist in his later career. Beckett was awarded the 1969 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his writing, which-in new forms for the novel and drama-in the destitution of modern man acquires its elevation". He was elected Saoi of Aosdana in 1984.Publisher: Lord John PressCity: Northbridge, CaliforniaYear: 1982Printing Information: Signed EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: 45 pagesWidth: 6.5" Height: 8.25"Book Details: Condition / Notes: This is a scarce author-signed limited edition of this short novel by Samuel Beckett.

Honorary Doctorates and a host of other awards have also been bestowed upon him.MacDonald spent summers writing at the camp he and his wife, Dorothy, built at Piseco Lake in the Adirondacks in the 1940's.

Lot 4006: 2V Ulysses S. Grant PERSONAL MEMOIRS OF U.S. GRANT 1886/1886 First Edition Antique Civil War Military History 18th President Of United States

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Title: Personal Memoirs of U. S. GrantAuthor: Ulysses S. Grant - Ulysses S. Grant (born Hiram Ulysses Grant was the 18th President of the United States (1869-1877) following his highly successful role as a war general in the second half of the Civil War. Under Grant, the Union Army defeated the Confederate military; having effectively ended the war and secession with the surrender of Robert E. Lee's army at Appomattox. As president he led the Radical Republicans in their effort to eliminate all vestiges of Confederate nationalism and slavery. Upset over uncontrolled violence in the South, President Grant effectively destroyed the Ku Klux Klan in 1871. President Grant believed in the protection of African American voting and civil rights. In terms of foreign policy, Grant revealed an "unexpected capacity for deliberation and consultation" that promoted the national interest. His reputation was marred by his repeated defense of corrupt appointees, and by the deep economic depression (called the "Panic of 1873") that dominated his second term. Although his Republican Party split in 1872 with reformers denouncing him, Grant was easily reelected. By 1875 the conservative white Southern opposition regained control of every state in the South and as he left the White House in March 1877 his policies were being undone. Reconstruction ended on a note of failure as the civil rights of blacks did not remain secure. President Grant, however, after the controversial Presidential election of 1876, through a series of military deployments, secured the South from secession.A career soldier, he graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point and served in the Mexican-American War. When the Civil War began in 1861, Grant trained Union volunteer regiments in Illinois. In 1862, as a general he fought a series of battles and was promoted to major general after forcing the surrender of a large Confederate army and gaining control of Kentucky and most of Tennessee. He then led Union forces to victory after initial setbacks in the Battle of Shiloh, earning a reputation as an aggressive commander. In July 1863, after a long, complex campaign, Grant defeated five uncoordinated Confederate armies (capturing one of them) and seized Vicksburg. This famous victory gave the Union full control of the Mississippi River, split off the western Confederacy, and opened the way for more Union triumphs. After another win at the Battle of Chattanooga in late 1863, President Abraham Lincoln made him lieutenant general and commander of all of the Union Armies. As commanding general of the army, Grant confronted Robert E. Lee in a series of very bloody battles in 1864 known as the Overland Campaign that ended with the bottling up of Lee at Petersburg, outside the Confederate capital of Richmond. During the siege, Grant coordinated a series of devastating campaigns launched by William Tecumseh Sherman, Philip Sheridan, and George Thomas. Finally breaking through Lee's trenches, the Union Army captured Richmond in April 1865. Lee surrendered his depleted forces to Grant at Appomattox as the Confederacy collapsed. Although Lee's allies denounced Grant in the 1870s as a ruthless butcher who won by brute force, most historians have hailed his military genius.Grant's two consecutive terms as President stabilized the nation after the American Civil War and during the turbulent Reconstruction period that followed. As president, he enforced Reconstruction by enforcing civil rights laws and fighting Ku Klux Klan violence. Grant won passage of the Fifteenth Amendment; giving constitutional protection for African-American voting rights. He used the army to build the Republican Party in the South, based on black voters, Northern newcomers ("Carpetbaggers") and native white supporters ("Scalawags.") As a result, African Americans were represented in the U.S. Congress for the first time in American history in 1870. Grant's reputation as president by 1875 was at an all-time high for his previous veto of the Inflation Bill, the passage of the Resumption of Specie Act, and Secretary Bristow's successful raids that shut down the Whiskey Ring.Grant's foreign policy, led by Secretary of State Hamilton Fish, implemented International Arbitration, settled the Alabama Claims with Britain and avoided war with Spain over the Virginius Affair. His attempted annexation of the Dominican Republic failed. Grant's response to the Panic of 1873 gave necessary, although limited, financial relief to New York banking houses, but was ineffective in stopping the severe five year industrial depression that followed. More than any other president, Grant had to respond to Congressional investigations into financial corruption charges of all federal departments. In 1876, Grant's reputation was damaged by his White House deposition defending his personal secretary Orville Babcock, indicted in the Whiskey Ring graft trials, and his Secretary of War William W. Belknap's resignation, impeachment by the House, trial and acquittal in the Senate over receiving profit money from the Fort Sill tradership. After leaving office, Grant embarked on a two-year world tour that included many enthusiastic royal receptions. In 1880, he made an unsuccessful bid for a third presidential term. His memoirs were a critical and popular success. Historians until recently have given Grant's presidency the worst rankings; however, his reputation has significantly improved because of greater appreciation for his foreign policy and civil rights achievements, particularly: avoiding war with Britain and Spain, the Fifteenth Amendment, persecution of the Ku Klux Klan, enforcement of voting rights, and his Indian Peace Policy.Publisher: Charles L.

Lot 4013: 28V Vintage 1947 LIFE MAGAZINE World War II Aftermath Occupation Germany Gregory Peck Bathing Suits GI Bill Student Veterans Teenagers American WWII Casualties Bombing Germany

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Details: Twenty-five of the issues of "Life" magazine in this lot date from 1947, two from 1944, and one from 1943. The 1947 issues reflect the changes in American society in the aftermath of World War II. Among the articles in this collection of issues are pieces on Gregory Peck, the U.S. occupation of Germany, the challenges of re-integrating veterans back into society and the G.I. Bill, with many ex-soldiers now in college; the growing social importance of teenagers, and lots of tasteful, slightly risque girly pictures. Stories on trends in fashion and pop culture and the more dignified forms of celebrity gossip predominate, but don't completely preclude coverage of more poltiical developments worldwide. Cover stories on the magazines published during World War II include an article on America's combat fatalities, bombing raids over Germany, and fancy, pure-bred dogs.The content of "Life" generally followed the same template for the next four decades: short, entertaining, articles of no more than two pages, most of which were taken up by eye-catching photography. The ratio of serious news content to entertaining "life-style" and fashion puff pieces stayed at about 1/3.5, and the covers of the magazines reflected that as well. To inspect and acquire more detailed information about this lot, please attend our live preview before the auction.Condition / Notes: These magazines are typically in functional or better condition with some age/wear indications. We identify any advanced flaws that come to our attention during cataloging.For lots which include only books, our shipping charge applies to any address within the fifty United States. For lots which are not books, the stated shipping cost in this listing will apply only to addresses within the continental 48 states.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Details: Twenty-one of the issues of "Life" magazine in this lot date from 1949, nine were published in 1937, and five hit the newstands in 1948; and all provide a mirror to the middle-class person's experience of the United States in those years. Stories on trends in fashion and pop culture and the more dignified forms of celebrity gossip predominate, but don't completely preclude coverage of more serious issues worldwide. The content of "Life" generally followed the same template for the next four decades: short, entertaining, articles of no more than two pages, most of which were taken up by eye-catching photography. The ratio of serious news content to entertaining "life-style" and fashion puff pieces stayed at about 1/3.5, and the covers of the magazines reflected that as well. To inspect and acquire more detailed information about this lot, please attend our live preview before the auction.Condition / Notes: These magazines are typically in functional or better condition with some age/wear indications. We identify any advanced flaws that come to our attention during cataloging.For lots which include only books, our shipping charge applies to any address within the fifty United States. For lots which are not books, the stated shipping cost in this listing will apply only to addresses within the continental 48 states. Within those parameters, the shipping cost for this lot will be: $46.50
