        Collection of 21 Erotic Stories from the Fifties

      Tijuana, Mexico: The 7 Zephyrs Press and Esoterica Press. 1951-1953. Two gray file folders containing 21 stapled quarto pamphlets; one with punch holes is string-tied and the other is stab bound with wire. Each story is individually stapled in wrappers with two-color covers and mimeograph sheets, printed rectos only. About half are paginated and most have "Copy" printed on their covers and with a number in red. Wear to the edges and oxidation to the staples, overall very good.A collection of erotic stories published by The 7 Zephyrs Press and Esoterica Press in the early 1950s. The stories, which typically tell of virginal young men and woman experiencing sex for the first time (as well as in all of its many varieties), hold a particular forbidden charm despite their crude production and hastily composed content. They also remind us of the repressive nature of postwar America when graphic descriptions of sex and alternative sexual desires were not only considered immoral, but many cases, illegal as well.One of the files folder has a magazine clipping taped to its inside front cover titled, "Unique Store: Lewd Books Openly Sold in Tijuana!" This one-page article from Bare magazine describes the Old Paris Book Shop on Main Street in Tijuana which sells "dirty books" to tourist. This is the first contemporary story we've seen about of this previously unknown bookstore, and suspect this collection was likely assembled by one of the stores customer.An interest pair of artifacts from the hidden world of 1950s pornography.List of titles:String-tied Folder:Randy Rodger and Lecherous Laura (Part I).

The finest novel of the Royal Navy in WWII and a maritime classic. The story, based upon the author's own experiences, formed the basis of Charles Frend's notable feature film starring Jack Hawkins in one of his most memorable roles. So accurate is its depiction of the Battle of the Atlantic that it is one of the very few works of fiction admitted by Law to his standard bibliography 'The Royal Navy in World War Two'. Law, 1865

        Alpha Iota Chapter of Theta Sigma Phi. Yearbook 1950-1951. [Cover title]: AI: Nineteen Fifty - Nineteen Fifty-one

      (Long Beach, California): Alpha Iota Chapter of Theta Sigma Phi. 1951. Oblong folio. Measuring 19.5" x 8.25". Plastic spiral bound handpainted and hand-lettered card covers with plastic overlay. Light edgewear, a few of the affixed elements (probably photographs) are lacking, a couple of others have become loose or detached, but otherwise nice and near fine. A completely handmade, well-designed, and very attractive yearbook made for a sorority chapter, in Long Beach, California, probably at Los Angeles-Orange County State College (now California State University, Long Beach). A long introductory poem about the Chapter's activities is signed "R.P.L." which seems to indicate the member Rosemary Leal who is listed elsewhere in the book. Each page has been carefully and artfully handlettered, usually with affixed photographs, invitations to events, clippings, or letters indicating the various activities of the sorority. The yearbook highlights chapter events, both locally and nationally, service activities that the sorority participated in: Red Cross, March of Dimes, Christmas Seals, etc., and many others: bridal showers and engagement parties, dances, fashion shows, excursions, Mother's Day events, a Gold Rush 49ers-theme pledge party, a Lone Ranger and Tonto "mock initiation," Halloween Party, etc.Los Angeles-Orange County State College was founded in 1949, so presumably this would shed some light on the very early days of the institution. Considering the amount of labor that went into the yearbook, it seems likely that this appealing artifact is unique . .

        The Great Beast. The Life of Aleister Crowley (With The Scarce Promotional Band, Book Flyer and a Signed Letter By The Author) Rider : 1951

      The First UK Printing published by Rider in 1951. The BOOK is in near Fine Condition. A little pushing at the spine ends. Mild offsetting to the end papers. Light toning to the text block with a few small darker marks to the lower text-block. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The fragile paper WRAPPER is price-clipped and is in Very Good+ condition. Edge-wear with a little loss at the upper front fold and spine head. Nicks and closed tears to the rear cover and upper spine and lower rear spine fold. Two small rubbed areas to the rear cover. The rare Promotional Band is complete and is in Very Good++ condition with some spotting and creasing in places. The Band has the comments: 'The Wickedest man in the world', 'The king of depravity' et al. The wrapper and band look very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover . The book is accompanied by a Flyer for another Symonds' title ' The Magic of Aleister Crowley' and also a letter Signed by John Symonds dated 1958. In this letter Symonds details how to access Crowley's work. He finishes the letter : '.The only way to build up a collection of Crowleyana is to have plenty of money and bid for the items when they come up in Sotherby's!.'. The first of Symonds' four biographical books of Crowley which introduced readers to 'The Great Beast'. The book also includes, as an appendix, Gerald Yorke's ground-breaking Bibliography of Crowley. Symonds met Crowley a year before his death in 1947 and was named his literary executor. He was fascinated yet quite critical of his subject, leading Crowley's personal secretary Israel Regardie to label him 'that most hostile biographer'. Very scarce with such attributes. More images available on request. Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.

      1951. Zusammen 12¼ SS. auf 14 Bll. Verschiedene Formate. Die Photographie i. F. 201:125 mm. Mit einer Beilage (s. u.). Freundschaftliche Korrespondenz mit dem Filmregisseur und -produzenten George Cukor (1899-1983), u. a. über Colettes Novelle "Gigi", die von ihr für die Bühne bearbeitet wurde: "This is not what I consider a final draft of Gigi, by any means, for there is plenty of work to be done on it. But I do feel it is at a stage where I should proceed according to the ideas of the director. My own concept of the play is that the whole thing should be in the mood of a rather naughty Valentine and that it must definitely have a girl in the title role who can emerge as a star. (Mind you, I do think that the part will give any actress plenty of scope and opportunity.) Another idea I have is this - - If it were a possibility that Bethel Leslie could play Gigi, it might also be a possibility that Helen Hayes would play Aunt Alicia. I know that Helen has been considering to do a play with Bethel, should the right one come along. So this might be it [...]" (a. d. Br. v. 3. IV. 1951). - Tatsächlich sollte "Gigi" dann jedoch mit der damals noch unbekannten Audrey Hepburn in der Hauptrolle besetzt werden und ebnete dieser dann ihren Weg zum Debüt auf der Leinwand. - Die Photographie mit einem hübschen Schultersück in S/W; beiliegend ein ms. Briefdurchschlag an Jerry Bressler von der Columbia Pictures Corp. (2½ SS. auf 3 Bll.): "Love to my twin brother from | Anita". - Aus der Sammlung Charles Williamson und Tucker Fleming.

        [Maquette / Tapuscrit / Dessins / Gravures / Lavis] Clochers de Provence

      1951Sl, Maurice Darantière, sd [1951]. 29 x 20 cm, in-4, 36 ff. n. ch. dont 12 eaux-fortes hors texte; en feuilles sous couverture blanche rempliée et illustrée. Edition originale. L'un des 200 exemplaires sur vélin du Marais, seul papier (n° 108). (Inconnu de Monod.) On joint à l'exemplaire : 1/ La maquette de l'ouvrage, due à Claude Frégnac, comportant 10 dessins à l'encre bleue sur papier calque, contrecollés (les dessins des deux derniers clochers n'ont jamais été contrecollés). 2/ 16 feuillets d'essais d'impression, comportant 7 épreuves hors texte. 3/ Pour chacun des douze clochers, le tapuscrit, ainsi que les documents suivants : a) Vaisons-la-Romaine : dessin à l'encre de Chine sur papier calque, 1 épreuve de l'état définitif, b) Saint-Véran-de-Cavaillon : dessin à encre de Chine sur papier calque, 1 épreuve de l'état définitif, c) Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer : dessin à l'encre de Chine sur papier calque, 1 épreuve à grandes marges justifiée épreuve d'artiste, d) Viviers : dessin à l'encre de Chine sur papier calque, 1 épreuve à grandes marges du premier état, 1 épreuve de l'état définitif, e) Saint-Honorat-des-Alyscamps : dessin à l'encre de Chine sur papier calque, 1 épreuve à grandes marges du premier état, 1 épreuve de l'état définitif, f) Géménos : 1 épreuve du premier état justifiée épreuve d'artiste et paraphée, 4 épreuves de l'état définitif, g) Alès : dessin à l'encre de Chine sur papier calque, 2 épreuves du premier état dont l'une justifiée épreuve d'artiste, h) Le Thoronet, une épreuve du premier état justifiée épreuve d'artiste et paraphée, i) Moustiers-Sainte-Marie : un dessin à l'encre de Chine, rehaussé au lavis, sur papier Canson, paraphé, 1 épreuve du premier tirage, justifié épreuve d'artiste, 1 épreuve du premier état, 1 épreuve de l'état définitif justifiée épreuve d'artiste, j) Saint-Tropez : 1 épreuve du premier tirage, justifié épreuve d'artiste, k) Saint-Gilles-du-Gard : 2 dessins à l'encre de Chine sur papier calque, le premier correspondant à une gravure finalement rejetée et entièrement recommencée, deux états de cette estampe, le deuxième justifié épreuve d'artiste, 1 épreuve de l'état définitif, tel que finalement retenu, l) Le Thor : dessin à l'encre de Chine sur papier calque, 1 épreuve de l'état définitif. 4/ Un dessin à l'encre de Chine sur papier calque représentant l'Eglise St-Laurent de Salon-de-Provence (aucune gravure correspondant à cette étude, finalement non choisie pour le livre). 5/ Un dessin à l'encre de Chine sur papier calque représentant l'Eglise Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde à Marseille (idem que 4/). 6/ Un dessin à l'encre de Chine sur papier calque représentant la cathédrale d'Embrun, une épreuve du premier état et une autre du 2e état, justifiées épreuve d'artiste et paraphées (Embrun ne fut finalement pas retenu pour le livre). 7/ 2 paires d'estampes représentant des églises que nous ne sommes pas parvenus à identifier. Cet ensemble exceptionnel constitue un témoignage particulièrement intéressant de la genèse d'un livre illustré. Elève d'André Favory, Lily Rossignol est peintre de paysages, de nus et de fleurs. Son travail de graveur semble peu connu et peu abondant. Les eaux-fortes jointes, tirées par l'artiste elle-même, et non, comme dans l'ouvrage imprimé, par Roger Lacourière, sont beaucoup plus profondes que dans ce dernier. Quelques traces de rouille laissées par des trombones dans les marges de certaines estampes. Pour le reste, parfait.

        The Fear of God

      Garden City: Doubleday, 1951 - Later printing. Very good in a mended dust jacket. The author was an Irish born priest who was a successful promoter of Evangelical Catholicism, holding mass rallies and using mass media as part of his ÒFamily Rosary Crusade.Ó Especially popular in Latin America, he tied himself closely to the C.I.A., an overly cozy relationship that he was eventually forced to abandon. He was criticized for leading a lavish lifestyle, but claimed that this was due to the generosity of his friends in Hollywood, and not at his insistence or request. This copy has been signed on the endpapers by many of those Hollywood actors and personalities, including Art Linkletter, Elinor Donahue, James Gleason, Jane Withers Moss (her married name at the time), Francis X. Bushman, Ward Bond, Rosalind Russell, Van Johnson, Charles Boyer, Ricardo Montalban and his sister-in-law, Loretta Young. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
