1960. Dag Hammarskjold was a Swedish economist and diplomat who served as the second Secretary-General of the United Nations. Hammarskjold still remains the youngest person to have held the post, being only 47 years old when he was appointed in 1953. His second term was cut short when he died in the crash of his DC-6 airplane in Northern Rhodesia while en route to cease-fire negotiations during the Congo Crisis. He is the only person to be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize posthumously. Hammarskjold has been referred to as one of the two best secretaries-general of the United Nations, and his appointment has been mentioned as the most notable success for the UN. President John F. Kennedy called Hammarskjold "the greatest statesman of our century.

Recognized at the age of two as the reincarnation of the Thirteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso was brought to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, and enthroned two years later as the fourteenth Dalai Lama. In 1959, following the Chinese suppression of the Tibetan national uprising, he was forced to seek asylum in India. As Tibet's leader-in-exile, he has worked tirelessly not only on behalf of the Tibetan people but as a voice for human rights worldwide. "My Land and My People is, without a doubt, one of the most moving memoirs I have ever read" (Stanley Gosh, Saturday Review).

Description:
France: Draeger, 1968. First edition of this lavishly illustrated work by Salvador Dali. Quarto, original illustrated boards, 271 illustrations, with 80 color plates and 23 in toned gravure. Boldly signed by Salvador Dali opposite the title page in red paint, "Dali, 1971." Dali has added a crown to the flourish in the letter 'D'. Arranged and edited by Max Gerard. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Housed in the original slipcase. The infamous Surrealist in full colour and in his own words Picasso called Dali "an outboard motor that's always running." Dali thought himself a genius with a right to indulge in whatever lunacy popped into his head. Painter, sculptor, writer and film maker, Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was one of the century's greatest exhibitionists and eccentrics -- and was rewarded with fierce controversy wherever he went. He was one of the first to apply the insights of Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis to the art of painting. He brought extraordinary sensitivity, imagination… Read more

Description:
London: Oxford University Press, 1963. First edition of Soyinka's first book. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers as issued. Signed by Wole Soyinka on the title page. In near fine condition. One of the most recognized of Wole Soyinka's plays, A Dance of the Forests "was presented at the Nigerian Independence celebrations in 1960, it denigrated the glorious African past and warned Nigerians and all Africans that their energies henceforth should be spent trying to avoid repeating the mistakes that have already been made." At the time of its release, it was an iconoclastic work that angered many of the elite in Soyinka's native Nigeria. Politicians were particularly incensed at his prescient portrayal of post-colonial Nigerian politics as aimless and corrupt. Despite the deluge of criticism, the play remains an influential work. In it, Soyinka espouses a unique vision for a new Africa, one that is able to forge a new identity free from the influence of European imperialism.

Description:
London: William Heinemann, 1951-1973. Anthony Powell's universally acclaimed epic encompasses a twelve-volume panorama of twentieth century London. Hailed by Time as "brilliant literary comedy as well as a brilliant sketch of the times," A Dance to the Music of Time opens just after World War I. Amid the fever of the 1920s and the first chill of the 1930s, Nick Jenkins and his friends confront sex, society, business, and art. In the second volume they move to London in a whirl of marriage and adulteries, fashions and frivolities, personal triumphs and failures. These books "provide an unsurpassed picture, at once gay and melancholy, of social and artistic life in Britain between the wars" (Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.). Listed on Modern Library's 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century. Time magazine included the novel in its100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005.
