    Jiazheng, Sun [Henry A. Kissinger].

    Culture Across Boundaries: Conversations With Noted Figures Worldwide.

    China: Ministry of Culture of the People's Republic of China , 2008.

    First edition of this work by the former Chinese Culture Minister. Octavo, original wrappers as issued. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to Henry Kissinger in Chinese on the front free endpaper. The English translation reads, “To Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, Sun Jiazheng, January 26 2008 in New York.” Sun Jiazheng was a senior People’s Republic of China Minister of Culture from 1998-2008. An account of Sun Jiazheng’s 2005 meeting with Kissinger to discuss Sino-American interactions is the first chapter of the book. Kissinger, of course, was instrumental in the opening of relations between the United States and The People’s Republic of China in the early 1970s as President Richard Nixon’s celebrated foreign policy guru. The project included celebrated secret meetings between Kissinger and Chinese officials to the lay groundwork for the opening. Kissinger would later write the well-regarded work “On China.” From the library of Henry Kissinger. A nice association.

  • "I visited Burma in 1961. I met Prime Minister U Nu. We discussed Buddhism": Autograph Letter Signed by David Ben-Gurion regarding his 1961 visit to Burma

    Ben-Gurion, David.

    David Ben-Gurion Autograph Letter Signed.

    1965.

    Autograph letter signed by the founder of modern day Israel and first prime minister David Ben-Gurion. Addressed to Dr. Martin Rywell, editor of Listen Magazine published in Harriman, Tennessee, the letter reads, “Sdeh. Boker,  22.6.65 Dear Dr. Martin Rywell, Only the first part of the story you mention in your letter is true. I visited Burma in 1961. I met Prime Minister U Nu. We discussed Buddhism but the story about “a trick” is a pure invention. D. Ben-Gurion.” The letter refers to Ben Gurion’s  two-week sojourn to Burma in 1961, which marked one of the longest official trips abroad for an Israeli prime minister. The first prime minister of Burma, known honorifically as U Nu, was a major figure among leaders of non-Western countries in the mid 20th century, many of which had opposed Israel’s establishment. In 1955, U Nu became the first foreign prime minister to visit the Jewish state, a highly significant act of support which encouraged a mutually beneficial relationship between the two young governments. Double matted and framed with a photograph of Ben-Gurion. The entire piece measures 18 inches by 15 inches. Rare and desirable.

  • "We need only Israeli lists. Too many small political groups can only affect our stability": Rare Autograph Letter Signed by David Ben-Gurion to Eliahu Eliachar

    Ben-Gurion, David.

    David Ben-Gurion Autograph Letter Signed.

    1965.

    Autograph letter signed by and entirely in the hand of the founder of modern day Israel and first prime minister David Ben-Gurion. One page, text in Hebrew, addressed to Eliahu Eliachar, a notable Sephardic Zionist and Member of the Knesset, the letter reads in full, “Greetings, We don’t need separate political lists – not those of independent Yemenite or Sephardic political parties. Those lists can only distort/falsify the democratic process in our country and the process of integration as well. We need only Israeli lists. Too many small political groups can only affect our stability. The only way to resolve it is to change our voting system from relative voting to local voting. With great respect D. Ben-Gurion.” One of Ben-Gurion’s most ambitious goals in the first years of statehood was the unrestricted absorption of entire communities of newly-arrived Middle Eastern and North African Jews into the Ashkenazi-dominated Israeli society. Hundreds of thousands of new immigrants fled the inhospitable environment rising in the Islamic countries between 1948 and 1954 in the wake of the burgeoning Arab-Israeli conflict, settling in the economically-ravaged war-torn state. Other European Jewish communities from Bulgaria, Romania, and Poland were also transplanted to the Jewish State where they were forced to reside in transit villages and immigrants camps and became involved in domestic political in-fighting and became vulnerable to enticements from anti-establishment political groupings. Ben-Gurion feared that the plethora of small political parties could potentially destabilize Israel’s precarious democracy and advocated for a radical change in Israels electoral system with a two-party governing system, as opposed to the European proportional representational system. Above all, Ben-Gurion advocated for the swift unification of the numerous ethnic groups and the creation of an integrated singular Israeli identity. In near fine condition. Rare and desirable, offering a unique glimpse into the great leader’s political thought.

  • "I share entirely your view that it is vitally necessary for everyone in the Middle East to live in peace": Autograph Letter Signed by David Ben-Gurion

    Ben-Gurion, David.

    David Ben-Gurion Autographed Letter Signed.

    1970.

    Autograph letter signed by the founder of modern day Israel and first prime minister David Ben-Gurion. It reads, “Sdeh. Boker,  28. 2.  70 Dear Mr. George P. Viegelmann, Jr. I share entirely your view that it is vitally necessary for everyone in the Middle East to live in peace. I am expressing a private view: I would be ready to give up a great Part of the areas which we hold since the six day war, if this would bring peace; by peace I mean friendship with our Arab neighbors and cooperation politically, economically and culturally, but perhaps only Russia can bring this about. I even doubt whether the American Gov. can achieve that. In the future there may be a change in Egypt. David Ben-Gurion.” This letter is a very unique piece of history, particularly in regards to Israeli-Arab relations and the study of peace in general. While publicly Ben-Gurion was the undoubted leader in Zionism, privately at the end of his life, he began to have other opinions. He desired peace even if it meant giving up land that they had fought to obtain. Ben-Gurion’s thoughts on peace in his latter years is corroborated by the recent documentary, Ben-Gurion, Epilogue. This movie features footage that was taken in 1968 and only recently discovered. In the footage he explains that Israel’s moral compass was inexorably tied to its treatment of the non-Jews living under its rule. Double matted and framed opposite a photograph of Ben-Gurion. The entire piece measures 15 inches by 16.5 inches.

    Eleftherios Venizelos Autograph Letter Signed.

    1922.

    Autograph letter signed by “the maker of modern Greece,” Eleftherios Venizelos. One page, typescript on letterhead from Legation de Greece 51 Upper Brook Street. W.1, dated 24th October, 1922 and addressed to Mr. John Hays Hammond 2301 Kalorama Road Washington D.c., the letter reads, “My dear Mr. Hammond, I still retain very pleasant memories of out meeting in California, and of your courtesy and kindness to us. Since I have left America, a great disaster has come over my country, resulting in the expulsion of a million Christians from Asia Minor and Thrace, who are now threatened with starvation and death under the very eyes of a Europe too worn-out by the convulsions of the last ten years to cast more than an apathetic glance on the appalling sufferings caused by the mistakes of its diplomatists. In the papers I have read accounts of the truly magnificent spontaneity with which the American people are coming forward with offers of help in their crisis. America has once more shown her real Christian principles in what is primarily a humanitarian cause, and, as a Greek, I cannot but express my gratitude for the spirit that has been shown. I am taking the liberty of writing to you to ask you to use your wide influence on behalf of the innocent victims of this disaster, and should I like to point out that it is not only money that is needed, but assistance in the organisation of the relief; for Greece has been so exhausted by her recent adventures that she has neither the financial nor administrative resources to cope with the overwhelming problem of accommodating a surplus population amounting to one-fifth of the number of inhabitants within her borders. Please accept the expression of my gratitude and cordial thanks for anything you may be able to do for us. Believe me to be, Very sincerely Yours, E. K. Venizelos.” The recipient, John Hays Hammond was a successful American mining engineer, diplomat, and philanthropist. A close friend of President William Howard Taft, Hays was appointed a special United States Ambassador and became chairman of the U.S. Coal Commission in 1922. A nice association.
