        The Sea Around Us

      New York: Oxford University Press, 1951. Carson's second book, a popular account of the wonders of the oceans. Scarce early edition. Bibliographically complex, most copies offered as 'first editions' are actually book club issue. According to collector Steve Messier, who studied Carson's letters to and from her publisher, the true first has a two-line copyright statement - no mention of H Wolff - and no statement of later printing; and is bound in either an extremely scarce and delicate flat paper over boards, the very first state, of which perhaps 100 were issued only to reviewers, the rest being rebound in a glossy paper over boards, as we have here. The jacket appears in several more states. The earliest has three horizontal lines representing fathom marks on the upper front jacket flap and no reviews on that flap. The second state, which we have, has three fathom marks and two reviews. Later states have three reviews and only two fathom marks; yet later states have but one review by Thor Heyerdahl and two fathom marks. No early version has a price on the flap. On the earliest states, the rear jacket copy ends in 'coral reefs'; later states mentions Carson's Guggenheim Award. Hardcover, decorated paper over boards, white titling. Shows some edgewear, foxing, light general wear; endshhets & title page foxed; page edges foxed; jacket lightly rubbed and foxed, light edgewear. Text clean; vii, blank, 230 pages; index, bibliography, decorated endsheets.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good/Good. 5¾" by 8½".

        Reality Lost and Regained. Autobiography of a Schizophrenic Girl

      New York: Grune and Stratton,, 1951. With Analytic Interpretation by Marguerite Sechehaye. Translated by Grave Rubin-Rabson. Octavo. Original red vellum-grained paper covered boards, titles to spine and upper board in black. A little rubbed at the extremities, corners slightly bumped. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing, in the first issue grained boards, of one of the earliest autobiographical accounts of schizophrenia, the "remarkable visions" (Alvarez) recorded and interpreted by the patient's Swiss psychoanalyst Marguerite A. Schervaye (1887–1964). Schervaye was a leader in the psychoanalytic treatment of schizophrenics and had spent seven years treating the subject of this account, a young woman named Réne who began having schizophrenic episodes as a child and was institutionalised during her teenage years. In order to treat her, Sechervaye "drew on psychoanalytical and existential theory to fashion her own therapy. She saw the roots of psychosis in infantile emotional trauma. She maintained that this led the victim to constantly renewed efforts to relive the original trauma in order to overcome it. Such people also fled to fantasy, both to try and escape from their pain, but also to make reality subservient to desire. Freudian theory, with its notions of symbolization and displacement, helped decode the patient's communications that emanated from their imaginary world… Sechervaye advocated that 'the therapist instead of insisting on submission to reality (as he customarily does with the neurotic), will strive to offer him a new reality, such as reality as would have been necessary to avoid the initial, infantile trauma'" (Beveridge, Portrait of the Psychiatrist, p. 99). The analyst's intense work with Réne, in which she acted as a stand-in for the girl's real mother so that "reality was altered to address the patient's originally impoverished experience" apparently contributed to Réne's complete recovery and return to normal life. Marguerite's first book on Réne, Symbolic Realization (1947), related the case from the therapist's viewpoint, and in 1951 Sechervaye published this companion work, the young woman's first-hand, but heavily edited, account of living with schizophrenia, beginning with her first experience of "unreality" at the age of five: "I remember very well the day it happened. We were staying in the country and I had gone for a walk… suddenly, as I was passing the school, I heard a German song… I stopped to listen and at that instant a strange feeling came over me, a feeling hard to analyze but akin to something I was to know too well later–a disturbing sense of unreality. It seemed to me that I no longer recognised the barracks; the singing children were prisoners, compelled to sing. It was as though the school and the children's song were set apart from the rest of the world. At the same time my eye encountered a field of wheat whose limits I could not see. The yellow vastness, dazzling in the sun, bound up with the song of the children… filled me with such anxiety that I broke into sobs… It was the first appearance of those elements which were always present in later sensations of unreality: illimitable vastness, brilliant light, and the gloss and smoothness of material things." The account continues through the escalating troubles of her childhood and her institutionalisation, followed by her experience of therapy with Sechervaye, who completes the volume with a chapter on her own interpretation of the case. Though psychoanalytical therapy for schizophrenics has now been discredited, and Réne's long-term outcome from this treatment is unknown, her autobiography remains significant as one of the earliest published memoirs of schizophrenia and a revealing record of the disease's effects on the mind. First editions in the first issue boards, such as this copy, are uncommon–more often seen are the remainders in ungrained red boards and the later printings which also bear the date 1951 on the title page.

        Portrait of Vivien Leigh as Blanche Dubois in a Streetcar Named Desire. Original oil painting.

      c. 1951. - Oil on board. c. 1951. signed. 11 x 7 inches. Framed and glazed. Peake first met Lawrence Olivier in Germany in 1945 and would use this friendly meeting as an introduction in 1950 when he attempted to persuade Olivier and his wife Vivien Leigh to produce and act in his play The Wit to Woo. According to Olivier, Leigh liked the play but his approches came to nothing and they eventually gave upon it in 1952. During this period Vivien Leigh starred in Elia Kazan's film of Tennessee William's A Streetcar Named Desire. This haunting portrayal won Leigh an Oscar for the role. Portraits by Peake of well-known people rarely appear on the market.

First issue with "Patterson" on the verso of the half-title page. Translated from the German by Hilda Rosner. SIGNED and INSCRIBED by Henry Miller on the front free endpaper: "To Mrs. Edna Liebmann/who, I hope, will/spread the good/news./Henry Miller/8/10/52." Laid in are two AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED (ALSs) by Miller to Liebmann with the original mailing envelopes addressed in Miller's hand from 1957 and 1958. Dustwrapper art by Alvin Lustig. One of this Nobel Prize winner's two famous and important novels, the other being of course STEPPENWOLF. Hesse based this book on the early life of Gautama Buddha. The story of a son rebelling against his father's teaching and traditions and eventually finding true enlightenment resonated with those maturing in the 1960s and 1970s making this title something of a cult classic. It was made into a beautiful film in 1972 by Conrad Rooks.

        Cahiers Du Cinema Revue Mensuelle Du Cinéma Et Du Télécinéma: Nos. 1-5

      Les Editions De L'Etoile, Paris 1951 - Five issues. Uniform yellow photo-illustrated wrappers, lettered in black. Between 50 and 60 pp., profusely illustrated with b&w photographs throughout, advertisements at rear. A little light wear to corners and spines, spine glue detaching from contents in Nos. 4 and 5. L'Age Du Cinéma insert present in No. 4. A very nice set. First editions. THE FIRST FIVE ISSUES OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL CINEMA MAGAZINE EVER PUBLISHED. Since its inception more than sixty years ago, Cahiers Du Cinéma has been responsible for fundamental change in both the practice and the perception of cinema. Founded by film theorist and critic André Bazin in 1951, the magazine proudly laid out its manifesto from the outset, hailing cinema as an art form every bit as important as literature, music or painting, and according its practitioners the title of artist, not artiste. For sixty years it has championed the serious over the merely entertaining, the heroic failure over the safe success and, most importantly, a distinctive European voice over transatlantic homogeneity. The magazine's flavour is captured by its list of the 100 best films of all time, published in 2008. Citizen Kane and Night of the Hunter top a roll call otherwise dominated by European and World cinema, with an occasional nod to the likes of Howard Hawks and John Ford. It's quirkiness is characteristic of the magazine: there are the names you would expect to find (Bergman, Fellini, Dreyer) but the chosen films are surprising (Fanny and Alexander, Amarcord, and Gertrud are their respective entries). Cahiers Du Cinema was at its most influential in the late 1950s, when the magazine became the official headquarters of the young directors of the French New Wave: Truffaut, Chabrol, Godard, Rohmer and Rivette. Socially, politically and intellectually engaged, these directors were the engine room of La Nouvelle Vague , a movement which set the future course not just of European cinema, but also that of the American indie movement of the 1970s, whose leading lights were weaned on the films promoted and popularised by Cahiers. Political infighting led to dark days for the magazine in the early 1970s -- movies and Maoism don't mix -- and the magazine has always had a tendency to disappear up its own cul from time to time. But its faults notwithstanding, Cahiers remains the most influential and respected film magazine ever published. A lovely run of the first five issues of this magisterial publication -- the New Yorker of cinema.
