Description:
Raphael Tuck & Sons, Ltd., [1941]. The historic secret Atlantic Conference was held between August 9th and 12th, 1941 on a warship anchored in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland. At that momentous meeting, the two leaders and their military aides agreed upon critical policies for the conduct of a joint war against Germany, even though the U.S. was still officially neutral and would remain so until December 8. The meetings culminated in the Atlantic Charter, a declaration of principles issued a few days after the conference. Often compared to Wilson's Fourteen Points, the Charter also laid the foundation for the United Nations Declaration, signed by 26 nations in January 1942.

Octavo, original cloth, illustrated with over eighty illustrations by Rockwell Kent. Very good in a good dust jacket. Ownership inscription. Salamina, the story of his years in Greenland, is Rockwell Kent's longest and richest book. Probably Kent's best painting has been done in Greenland; for he found it an ideal place to work. The setting was amazingly beautiful; the native people became his close friends and welcomed him, unreservedly, into the community life. His story of his years there is a true chronicle of may curious and romantic happenings, and a narrative which, in style and in richly varied content, reflects perfectly the remote and beautiful world of North Greenland.

Description:
1952. Prominent Spanish surrealist painter, Salvador Dali was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in August 1931. Dali's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media. Dali attributed his "love of everything that is gilded and excessive, my passion for luxury and my love of oriental clothes" to an "Arab lineage", claiming that his ancestors were descended from the Moors.

Glen Ridge, New Jersey: Thomas Horton and Company, 1973. First edition of this collection of writings by the Nobel Prize-winning economist. Octavo, original blue cloth. In very good condition. Signed and dated by Paul Samuelson on the title page.

He was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for having written considerable parts of economic theory, and he is one of the ten Nobel Prize winning economists still signing the Economist's statement opposing the Bush tax cuts. One of Samuelson's many novel contributions was that he generalized and applied mathematical methods developed for the study of thermodynamics to the field of economics.
