        A Collection of Warhol's early Work in Books and Magazines

      1951. AN ARCHIVE -- WARHOL AS BOOK DESIGNER WARHOL, Andy. A Collection of Warhol's Early Work in Books and Magazines. Comprised of 46 books and 10 magazines. Various formats, sizes and bindings, each as originally issued. Each item preserved in new cloth folding box. Various Places: 1951-2004. |~||~||~||~||~| A nearly complete collection of Warhol's work as an illustrator, and as a designer of dust jackets for trade publications, as well as covers for magazines. This aspect of Warhol's creative output is little known, little collected, and the material has been largely ignored. A recent exhibition entitled Reading Warhol at the Brandhorst Museum in Munich brought much of the forgotten material to the attention of Warhol scholars and collectors. However, that exhibition covered only books and ephemera, and did not deal with his magazine covers. The majority of our collection documents Warhol's early work, beginning shortly after he arrived in New York from Pittsburgh in 1949. The importance of these illustrated book and magazine covers is easily understood when one sees how his later style evolved from the imagery seen in these early works. The collection includes 10 magazines for which Warhol designed the covers, including the celebrated cover for Esquire, all 5 issues of Time magazine, and his covers for Vogue, Playboy and Opera News. Lacking only four books listed in Reading Warhol, and not including the seven books published by Warhol himself in small handmade editions. The dust wrappers for the books published in the fifties and sixties are extremely rare and are now virtually impossible to find on the market. See: Reading Warhol, catalogue of exhibition at the Museum Brandhorst, September 18, 2013-January 12, 2014 (Munich: Hatje Cantz, 2013). A complete list of the collection is available upon request.

        Au moment voulu

      First Edition, review copy service. Very valuable and exciting autograph signed by the author to his mother and his sister: "To my very dear, / this book may be dangerous to write / can be dangerous to read / linked because the distance , / in all affection and gratitude / Eze, 24 December 1951. " Marguerite Blanchot, renowned organist Chalon Cathedral, remained all his life in the family home with his mother and aunt. "It will gradually become, for the family, as the memory of origins." Very close to Maurice, she regularly corresponded with the writer who reflects him great recognition for his dedication to their helpless mother. If intense affection Blanchot for his mother and his sister shines in dedications of it, we know almost nothing of their relationship. In the only biographical essay on Blanchot, Christophe Bident reveals, however: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot worshiped his brother very proud of him, (...) it attached great importance to his political ideas (...) She read a lot (.... .) They phoned corresponded. A distance, they shared the same natural authority, the same concern for discretion. " Blanchot address him indeed many books from his library, now with her continuous intellectual link. As the passion of Blanchot for his mother, it is the turn of his work that we discover the finest examples: "Maybe the power of the mother figure she borrows its brightness to the same power fascination, and one could say that if the mother carries this fascinating attraction is as appearing when the child lives entirely under the gaze of fascination, it concentrates in itself all the powers of enchantment ". Cultivating absolute discretion, Blanchot pushed the art of erasing into his handwritten dedications generally brief and almost always written on cards attached to the rare books he offered his close friends. In contrast, in these precious items to his mother and sister, Blanchot offers in all its fragility and, in the privacy of this correspondence, his work focuses on a previously unknown personal look.

Overall near fine with some scattered bumps and small tears at the edges, with folds as issued. These broadsides were used at newsstands to promote the latest issue of the magazine with text above or below the enlarged image of that week's front cover usually touting one of the cover stories, but occasionally an interior article or a short story. The cover features the talents of a number of popular Post artists such as John Falter, George Hughes, John Clymer, Thornton Utz, Steven Dohanos, Amos Sewell, Constantin Alajalov, and others. They depict American life of the 1950s with a gentle mix of humor (teenage dating, fashion, popular music), social commentary (influence of television, expansion of the highway system, and women in the workplace), and illustrations of rural life. A wonderful collection of images of mid-century American life. .

Clifton Fadiman Insert laid in (see below). Octavo, 277 pp. Black cloth with gilt imprinting; jacket with Michael Mitchell's now- famous carousel-horse pictorial design jacket. A Fine book with just a touch of top page edge dust in a jacket with small-scale wear at spine end and corners, and thin marginal toning at the top inside edges of the flaps; jacket is better than Very Good. Please see scans. Superior condition for the real first BCE of Salinger's famed novel. Laid in is the original pamphlet containing Clifton Fadiman's classic review of Catcher in the Rye for the Book-of-the-Month Club, also in fine condition. Salinger's timeless and classic masterpiece, the chronicle of forty-eight hours in the coming-of-age of a troubled teenager, here in its most collectible form short of the first edition, and the form that probably did more to popularize the novel than the first edition. No recounting needed here; you know the story, and Fadiman's review is better than Cliff Notes anyway. Scarce in this superior condition, rare with the insert. L64

        Never Leave Well Enough Alone

      New York: Simon and Schuster,, 1951. Octavo. Original black and white laminated boards, spine and front board lettered in white and gilt, red endpapers. With the dust jacket. Bookplate to front pastedown. Tips a little worn, minor stains to boards, laminate lifting slightly. A very good copy in the jacket with toned spine, chips to extremities and 16 cm closed tear to front panel with tape repairs. First edition, first printing of the legendary designer's autobiography. An extremely attractive association copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "To Harrison Jones, with high esteem and warm regards. Raymond Loewy. Feb. 20. '51." At the time, Jones was the chairman of Coca-Cola, with whom Loewy and his design team had been working closely throughout the late 1940s, streamlining equipment to develop Coca-Cola's brand identity through the design of coolers - he added the bottle opener with cap-catcher to the front of the machines - soda fountains - the "outboard motor" Dole Deluxe Dispenser - and delivery trucks, with the classic Hobbs truck body. Loewy is often credited with designing the contoured "hobble skirt" Coca-Cola bottle - a design which in fact dates back to 1915, and was (supposedly) mistakenly based on a cocoa pod - what Loewy actually did in 1954 was to "slenderize" the bottle's rather bulbous original silhouette, removing the embossed lettering and adding the vivd white applied colour lettering, creating the immediately recognisable modern Coke bottle. In Loewy's opinion the sinuous bottle shape was "the most perfectly designed package in the world".

        The Dictionary of National Biography

      George Smith, 1951 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Hardbound volume in blue cloth covered boards. Three volumes in one. Sir Sidney Lee (December 5, 1859 March 3, 1926) was an English biographer and critic. In 1883 he became assistant-editor of the Dictionary of National Biography. In 1890 he became joint editor, and on the retirement of Sir Leslie Stephen in 1891 succeeded him as editor. Lee himself contributed voluminously to the Dictionary, writing some 800 articles, mainly on Elizabethan authors or statesmen. The Dictionary of National Biography (DNB) is a standard work of reference on notable figures from British history, published from 1885. Since the scope included only deceased figures, the DNB was soon extended by the issue of three supplementary volumes, covering subjects who had died between 1885 and 1900 but who had not been included in the original alphabetical sequence, generally because the volume for their name had been among the earlier ones to be published. The supplements brought the whole work up to the death of Queen Victoria on 22 January 1901. Corrections were added. The dictionary was reissued with minor revisions in 23 volumes in 1908 and 1909; a subtitle said that it covered British history from the earliest times to the year 1900. In the words of the 1911 edition of the Encyclopdia Britannica, the dictionary had elucidated the private annals of the British, providing not only concise lives of the notable deceased, but additionally lists of sources which were invaluable to researchers in a period when few libraries or collections of manuscripts had published catalogues or indices, and the production of indices to periodical literatures was just beginning. Throughout the twentieth century, further volumes were published for those who had died, generally on a decade-by-decade basis, beginning in 1912 with a supplement edited by Lee covering those who died between 1901 and 1911. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with all pages securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities including slight bumping to the corners and some small marks to the boards. Internally the pages are clean and bright with the occasional handling mark and odd spot. The spotting is heavier to the front and rear blank end papers. Overall the volume is in very good condition..

        Physical Studies of Nucleic Acid. Crystalline Structure of DNA. Nucleic Acid: An Extensible Molecule?" SIGNED BY MAURICE WILKINS. With: Mary J. FRASER & Robert D. B. FRASER: "Evidence on the Structure of Deoxyribonucleic Acid from Measurements with Polarized Infra-red Radiation." Offprint from Nature, Vol. 167, May 12, 1951.

      1951 - 7 pp. Original wrappers. Very Good. First Edition. SIGNED BY MAURICE WILKINS and Signed by Raymond Gosling on the front wrapper. At a meeting of the Faraday Society in May 1950, Rudolf Signer "gave out samples of his best [DNA], and Wilkins took some home to King's. A few days later, he was preparing part of this DNA in highly viscous solution for the ultraviolet studies he was doing. Unexpectedly, he noticed that every time he touched the stuff with the tip of a glass rod and then drew the rod away, 'I had spun a very thin fibre of DNA, almost invisible, like a filament of spider web.' The fibres seemed so perfect and uniform that the molecules in them must have been neatly aligned alongside one another. Examined under a microscope, in polarized light, the fibres behaved as though they were made up of well-ordered crystals. So Wilkins took the fibres to a graduate student in the unit, Raymond Gosling, who was doing the crystallography with rams' sperm and had borrowed the use of an antiquated x-ray apparatus in a lead-lined basement of the chemistry department. Several dozen of Wilkins's fibres had to be bundled together, in a tiny tungsten-wire frame where they could be tightened like a violin bow, to constitute a large enough specimen for the soft focus of the x-ray tube. Wilkins and Gosling remembered that Bernal, fifteen years before, had got the first good x-ray patterns from protein crystals by keeping them wet. Accordingly, they maintained the DNA fibres at high humidity. They got striking patterns, with many spots, sharp and detailed, far better than ever before seen from DNA, and for the first time unmistakably from a substance in crystalline form. . . . That series of diffraction pictures taken in May or June of 1950 provided the one Wilkins showed at the meeting in Naples, a year later, that galvanized Watson's enthusiasm for DNA and x-ray crystallography" (Judson, Eighth Day of Creation, expanded ed., pp. 78-79). Olby, The Path to the Double Helix, pp. 332-35 (including an illustration taken from Wilkins and Gosling's paper). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
