CAMPAIGN MONEY: Reform and Reality in the States, Alexander, Herbert E. ; [SIGNED to Katharine Graham]
3 Alexander, Herbert E. ; [SIGNED to Katharine Graham] CAMPAIGN MONEY: Reform and Reality in the States
New York Free Press 1976 0029004101 / 9780029004104 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 8vo Signed by Author
Autograph; xiv, 337 pages; Publisher's black cloth. First edition, first printing, in a slightly worn, but unclipped, dust jacket. Inscribed by the editor and instigator of this book on the front free endpaper: "For Kay Graham / With best wishes / and warm regards / [signed] Herb Alexander / September 29, 1976." The recipient was Katharine Graham [1917-2001], Publisher, and later, Chairman of the Board of the Washington Post Company. Herbert E. Alexander [1927-2008] was known during his long career as the “dean” of political finance and election reform studies. Dr. Alexander wrote 20 books and more than 200 monographs and articles in which he described how politics, in the United States and elsewhere, is financed. Every four years, beginning in 1960, he published a study of how the Presidential and other federal election campaigns were financed, describing in detail how candidates and committees raised and spent money in search of electoral victory. In 1961–1962, Dr. Alexander served as executive director of the President’s Commission on Campaign Costs under President John F. Kennedy and subsequently as consultant to President Kennedy on legislation based on the President’s Commission report. The commission’s work initiated the modern era of political finance reform. Some of the commission’s recommendations were enacted quickly, including passage of a bill requiring the federal government to pay the transition costs for a newly elected president and vice-president from Election Day until Inauguration Day. Other recommendations bore fruit later, in the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 and federal income tax incentives for small political contributions and, after several transformations, in public financing of presidential campaigns. As a testament to his life’s work as a scholar of international reputation, in 2001 23 academics collaborated in the publication of a festschrift to honor Herbert Alexander - 'Foundations for Democracy: Approaches to Comparative Political Finance' (Nomos, 2001). This 1976 volume has a Foreword by John W. Gardner, and an Epilogue by (Washington Post columnist) David S. Broder. One of the regional sections was written by Howell Raines. ; Signed by Author; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item.

4 Alley, Ronald THE FOREIGN PAINTINGS, DRAWINGS AND SCULPTURE [in the Tate Gallery]
London Tate Gallery 1959 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 8vo 8" - 9" tall Signed by Author
Tate Gallery Catalogues; Autograph; 300 pages; Signed by the author on the ffep - "With all good wishes / Ronald Alley / 18.9.59" Clean and tight in original binding in very good dustjacket. This book constitutes the first catalogue of the Tate Gallery's foreign collection to be published since 1934. In addition to a detailed description of each art work, there is a brief biography of each of the artists. Illustrated with 56 plates, many containing multiple . From the collection of Stefan P. Munsing [1915-1994] who worked in New York City as a designer for Hans Knoll, Norman Bel Geddes and RCA. Munsing served in the Army in World War II, then as Chief of the Monuments, Fine-Arts & Archives Section in Munich. The MFAA was an Army unit locating stolen artworks which had disappeared into the huge Nazi hoards during the war. [Readers of this listing will have ample reason to appreciate the activities of this important organization by the end of December 2013, when George Cluny's movie: "Monument Men" is due to be released.] Munsing later joined the U.S. Department of State during the later 1940's and '50's, where he established the State Department's Amerika Haus programs in Munich and Berlin and organized exhibitions and cultural programs in Germany and Austria. In 1955, he was named cultural officer at the American Embassy in London, where he staged exhibitions of such New York artists as Philip Pavia, Paul Jenkins and Ben Shahn and became an important force in the London art world. Munsing returned to the U.S. in the 1960's and 70's where he helped establish the contemporary art collection of the National Museum of Fine Arts in Washington (now the National Museum of American Art) and headed the State Department's Art in Embassies program. In retirement from the State Department after 1976, Mr. Munsing was a consultant to the American Association of Museums. ; Signed by Author

Istoria del Testamento Vecchio e Nuovo rappresentata con bellissime figure con spiegazioni estratte da' Santi Padri, che molto edificano e servono a ben ordinare i costumi in ogni genere di persone, Anonymous [Rockwell Kent's copy]
6 Anonymous [Rockwell Kent's copy] Istoria del Testamento Vecchio e Nuovo rappresentata con bellissime figure con spiegazioni estratte da' Santi Padri, che molto edificano e servono a ben ordinare i costumi in ogni genere di persone
Venice nella stamperia di Giambatista Albrizzi 1770 Paperback Good+ Large 12mo 
8 p.l., 766 & [2] pages; Original flexible paste-paper boards. Spine quite worn, with upper portion now missing, exposing the sewing and the folded ends of the gatherings, some soiling and marks to the front and rear covers, hinges still attached by the sewing, upper corner of the first several leaves bumped, some lifting to the front paste-down endpaper. With engraved frontispiece and over 100 half-page illustrations throughout, along with an assortment of woodcut decorative tailpieces. With two Rockwell Kent bookplates, designed by the artist himself, mounted to the front paste-down endpaper. These bookplates date from Kent's second and third marriages. While living on Monhegan early in the twentieth century, Rockwell Kent met his first wife, Kathleen Whiting, a niece of painter Abbott Handerson Thayer. Over the course of the next 13 years, the couple had five children together until their divorce in 1925. Kent was married again in 1926 to Frances Lee Higgins, and, after a 1939 divorce, yet another marriage followed in 1940 to Shirley (“Sally”) Johnstone. Both bookplates Kent used for this book were exhibited at SUNY Plattsburg's State Art Museum "Art of the Bookplate" at the University's Rockwell Kent Gallery. [The larger plate is #458 - Frances and Rockwell Kent, 1928, image: 2 5/8 x 1 3/4 ", paper: 3 x 2 1/8 ". The smaller plate mounted beneath is #560- Sally and Rockwell Kent, 1955, image: approx. 1 1 x 1 1/4 ", paper: 1 5/16 x 1 1/2 "]. There is an interesting inscription in ink on a front blank leaf: "To Clarke Bowen / Compliments of / Mr. Joseph Calì / Artist / Malta / 31st March / 1914." Giuseppe Calì (1846 –1930) was a Maltese painter, born in Valletta of Neapolitan parents and educated at the Accademia delle Belle Arti in Naples. He was a prolific artist: almost every church of any consequence in Malta boasts work by Giuseppe Calì. He was commemorated by the Republic of Malta with a series of four postage stamps in 1996, and a coin in 2004. The 'New York Times' (23 May 1915) printed a notice of a private exhibition of Clarke Bowen's collection of art, furniture and objects at his home, Woodhaven [Queens], noting that most of Bowen's paintings had been aquired in Malta. There are also brief eighteenth century ownership inscriptions on that same front blank and the title page. Printed as an unusually tall 12mo. Collation: [-] 8 A-Ii 12. With both half title and a genuine initial blank leaf ([-]1). Despite the wear to the fragile original boards, a clean and complete copy of what is now a rare book. OCLC Number: 636308750 (locating a single copy only, at the Sistema Bibliotecario Ticinese, Lugano, Switzerland. From the collation, it appears that this sole OCLC copy lacked the initial blank leaf, and had only the text of the "Vecchio Testamento" - ending with page 504). A search of the huge database of ICCU [4600 Italian libraries -- Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo Unico (delle biblioteche italiane e per le informazioni bibliografiche)] turns up three copies in Italy -- [Biblioteca comunale Planettiana - Jesi - AN; Biblioteca del Monte - Perugia - PG; and Biblioteca comunale Manfrediana - Faenza - RA]. The collation of the uniform listing is completely in accord with our copy, with the blank leaf, the frontispiece, 766 pages of text (Testamenti Vecchio e Nuovo) and [2] pages of "Tavola." The Hauptbibliothek Altstadt at Heidelberg University has a copy with identical pagination (and the same frontispiece), but evidently dated "1760." Since that date, ten years earlier than our copy, is not mentioned in the 4600 library database of the ICCU, I suggest that this is a typographical error in modern cataloguing rather than a variant. No copies recorded in the USA, none in the British Library, or the Bibliotheque Nationale. Some of the many illustrations throughout show some wear in this copy, and the plates from which those were printed were almost certainly reused from earlier sources. Still, ownership of this copy seemed to inspire two reknowned artists, and at least one American collector of paintings.

Autograph; 180 pages; Inscribed and SIGNED by the author on ffep "For Kay Graham -- who deserves a much higher accolade that the one contained herein -- HSA / Santa Barbara / October 1973." Katharine Graham (1917-2001) was the Publisher, and later, Chairman of the Board of the Washington Post Company. She was a noted Washington hostess, whose dinner table served so many of the powerful, influential and interesting people during their tenure in the Nation's Capitol. Harry Scott Ashmore (1916 – 1998) was an American journalist who won a Pulitzer Prize for his editorials in 1957 on the school integration conflict in Little Rock, Arkansas. Ashmore was first an editorial writer and eventually executive editor at the Arkansas Gazette in Little Rock, Arkansas. In 1958 the Arkansas Gazette won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service during the school integration crisis of 1957. In the same year Harry Ashmore won the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Writing, "For the forcefulness, dispassionate analysis and clarity of his editorials on the school integration conflict in Little Rock." This book on media and the First Amendment focuses on the attempts of the Nixon administration to stifle both print and broadcast media. The Washington Post and Katharine Graham were in the thick of this battle.

11 Ashmore, Otis ; [ Charles Francis Adams ] A HISTORY OF THE ERECTION AND DEDICATION OF THE MONUMENT TO GENERAL JAMES EDWARD OGLETHORPE
Savannah Georgia Historical Society 1911 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Collections of the Georgia Historical Society, Vol VII, Part II; 54 pages; Clean and tight in original dark green cloth binding with gilt lettering. Scarce item of Georgia history in excellent condition and embellished with the wonderful bookplate of Charles Francis Adams (1835-1915), grandson of John Quincy Adams on the front pastedown. This bookplate was devised and first used by John Quincy Adams as here described: "The shield was divided quarterly. In the first quarter was an adaptation of the deer, pine, and fish device his father had adopted to commemorate his achievements in the negotiations with Britain. This quarter evidently represented the Adams family itself. Except for the stars, which are hatched with horizontal lines indicating the color blue, the bookplate gives no indication of tinctures for this quarter, which would suggest that it should be shown with the charges in their natural colors against a silver or white field. The second quarter represents the family of John Quincy’s mother Abigail Smith Adams, and the third quarter Abigail’s maternal line of Quincy. Finally, in the fourth quarter, are the familiar Boylston arms used before. The crest is also that from the Boylston arms, and the motto is again the passage from Tacitus, this time in the most common order, Fidem libertatem amicitiam retinebis."

Billington examines the changes that have occurred in the former Soviet Union over recent years and argues the neccesity of the USA and other Western powers making positive economic, political, strategic and cultural responses to the new circumstances. Billington was in Russia at the time of the coup in August 1991. The events and attitudes he witnessed during the crisis convinced him that the Russian people had at last found the confidence and hope to act for freedom. However, he warns, despite their humiliation in 1991, the Old Guard should not be underestimated. If the new experiment with democracy founders, they will be ready to reassert their hegemony. Hence the need for democratic governments throughout the world to act now to ensure that democracy does survive its birth throes and becomes established throughout the CIS.; Signed by Author; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item.

MR. JUSTICE AND MRS. BLACK - The Memoirs of Hugo L. Black and Elizabeth Black, Black, Hugo L. and Elizabeth ; [Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's copy]
18 Black, Hugo L. and Elizabeth ; [Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's copy] MR. JUSTICE AND MRS. BLACK - The Memoirs of Hugo L. Black and Elizabeth Black
New York Random House 1986 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Autograph; Inscribed and signed on ffep by Elizabeth Black, Mrs. Hugo L. Black to her good friend and fellow wife of a Supreme Court justice Andy Stewart, Mrs. Potter Stewart. The inscription reads as follows: "For Andy Stewart / And in loving/ memory of Potter, who / served on the Court / with Hugo for many / years. / With my love and / good wishes. / Elizabeth / February 27, 1986 / (Hugo's 100th birth anniversary)" Clean and tight in original black cloth binding in very good dustjacket. "These memoirs put into moving personal context many of the great legal decisions of recent American history. They give a behind the scenes view of the workings of the Supreme Court as well as the relationships the Blacks had with people in power, including the Presidents with whom they associated." In the index of this book, there are 22 references to Potter Stewart who served as a Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court for nearly 24 years. In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower nominated Potter Stewart to the Supreme Court to replace Justice Harold Hitz Burton, who was retiring. Stewart served on the Supreme Court until he announced his retirement from the Court on June 18, 1981 at the age of 66. During his tenure (1958-1981) as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, Potter Stewart made major contributions to criminal justice reform, civil rights, access to the courts, and Fourth Amendment jurisprudence. Stewart leaned toward moderate, pragmatic positions, but was often in the position of dissenting during his time on the Warren Court. Stewart's philosophy might be most coherently traced to Justice Robert Jackson, about whom Stewart said: "He saw that 'judicial activism' could be a deadening and stultifying force... that every coercive and centralizing court decision deals a blow ... to the ability and then to the will of the democratic process to operate with responsibility and vigor." ; Signed by Author
