        The Decisive Moment

      New York: Simon & Schuster in collaboration with Éditions Verve of Paris,, 1952. Folio. Original decorated boards designed by Matisse. With the dust jacket and the booklet of captions laid-in as required. Extremities a little worn; an excellent copy in the toned jacket with some nicks and chips to extremities. First US edition, first printing, first published earlier the same year as Images à la sauvette. The photographer's finest and definitive collection of images. In his preface Cartier-Bresson writes, "To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression… if the shutter was released at the decisive moment, you have instinctively fixed a geometric pattern without which the photograph would have been both formless and lifeless."

        Wise Blood

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company,, 1952. Octavo. Original yellow boards, titles to spine in black. With the dust jacket. An exceptional copy in the very slightly toned dust jacket. Beautiful. First edition, first printing, in the first issue jacket with the $3.00 price and the correct setting of the front flap. The author's landmark first book of which only 3,000 copies were printed. One of those pieces of book production each element of which is distinctly vulnerable - the yellow boards readily crease and discolour, the spine rolls with a single heavy reading, the white jacket attracts the sun and soils with little prompting, and is short tears occur to the stoutly laminate paper then chip inevitably follow. In this case all such perils have been avoided and this copy is,s by dint of that, simply gorgeous.

        Celle Qui N'Etait Plus [Diabolique] (First French Edition, Review Copy, Signed by Boileau and Narcejac)

      Paris: Denoel, 1952. First French Edition (and correct first). INSCRIBED by Narcejac on the front endpaper and signed by Boileau just below. A French review copy, with the necessary PRESSE punch-stamp present on both the rear panel of the jacket and the book. An absolutely pristine, extraordinarily well-preserved example. "Celle Qui N'Etait Plus" was the writing team's first effort, basis for Henri-Georges Clouzot's 1955 masterpiece, "Les Diaboliques" (or Diabolique), starring Simone Signoret. Before Clouzot had even finished making "Diabolique," Alfred Hitchcock had secured the rights to the duo's forthcoming book, which would become the basis for his masterpiece, "Vertigo." A cornerstone film source title, only the second book signed by either of the authors we have ever encountered. Beyond even this, however, clearly one of the first copies of the title to have been handled by anyone. Pages uncut. Fine in wrappers, in a Near Fine example of the rare dust jacket. In a custom quarter-leather clamshell box.Buss, p. 74. Criterion Collection 35. Grant, pp. 182-183. Selby Masterwork, p. 215. Spicer, p. 453.

        TOP OF THE HEAP (Intimately Inscribed)

      New York: William Morrow, 1952. FAIR, A. A. {actually:} Gardner, Erle Stanley. TOP OF THE HEAP. New York: William Morrow, (1952). First Edition. A FINE Bright copy (one stray pen mark on the fore-edge where Gardner's pen overshot the front free endpaper) in a very appealing VERY GOOD to NEAR FINE Original Dust Jacket with its appealing cover art by Charles Lofgren. The unclipped, priced Dust Jacket has some very light edge-wear and some stray marks on the back panel (which features a hilarious wanted poster of ESG). On the front endpaper, the author has inscribed: "To Tee, my wild Irish Rose, who has a perception of story values, a great imagination and no editorial contacts. With love, yours, Erle." Underneath the inscription, Gardner has written out his name in full and added the date: "Erle Stanley Gardner/February 1952." Tee Rose, as can be seen in the many other inscribed copies from her estate which we are currently selling, was a very close friend of ESG and their relationship dated from at least 1934 until 1963 when allusions to her ill-health may explain why he presented no more copies to her after that date. One of the best of the Bertha Cool-Donald Lam detective novels which was recently honored by being the first Cool-Lam title to be reprinted in 30 years (by the Hard Case Crime Club).. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good Plus. Illus. by Charles Lofgren.

First edition of Laborit's third book, with an inscription in his somewhat illegible hand addressed to "Monsieur le professeur."

Laborit also appeared in Resnais' 'Mon oncle d'amerique,' which draws heavily on his ideas.. Paris, Masson et cie., 1952. 205 pages. Original softcover in protective Mylar. Signed and inscribed by Laborit. Very good in green printed wraps, with a crease to the front panel and a small loss to the foot of the spine. First edition of Laborit's third book, with an inscription in his somewhat illegible hand addressed to "Monsieur le professeur." Laborit was a French physician, writer, and philosopher who eventually became a research department head at Boucicault. He was the first to study GHB, and also did pioneering research into dopamine antagonists as treatment for shock and as antipsychotics. Laborit also appeared in Resnais' 'Mon oncle d'amerique,' which draws heavily on his ideas. Henri Laborit (November 21, 1914 ?- May 18, 1995) was a French physician, writer and philosopher. Laborit was born in Hanoi, French Indochina and started his career as a neurosurgeon in the Marines and then moved on to fundamental research. He won the prestigious Albert Lasker Award for Clinical Medical Research in 1957. Laborit later became a research head at Boucicault Hospital in Paris. His interests included psychotropic drugs, eutonology, and memory. He pioneered the use of dopamine antagonists to reduce shock in injured soldiers. His observation that people treated with these drugs showed reduced interest in their surroundings led to their later use as antipsychotics. He was also the first researcher to study GHB, in the early 1960s. He hoped that it would be an orally bioavailable precursor to the neurotransmitter GABA, but it proved to have other uses and was later discovered as an endogenous neurotransmitter. He appeared in the 1980 Alain Resnais film Mon oncle d'Amérique, which is built around the ideas of Laborit and uses the stories of three people to illustrate theories deriving from evolutionary psychology regarding the relationship of self and society. This movie includes short sequences of rat experiments that are used to illustrate the behaviors of some of the characters in different situations (such as inhibition in the action). The French-born American market researcher Clotaire Rapaille considered Laborit to be an important influence in his work. The 1991 Italian film Mediterraneo begins with a quote from Laborit which, translated, means "In times like these, escape is the only way to stay alive and keep dreaming." (Wikipedia)

        Herr Puntila und sein Knecht Matti.

      Aufbau-Verlag, Berlin 1952.. OBr. Mit OschU., 8°. 171 SS., 3 nn. SS. (le. we.).. Versuche Heft 10. Von Brecht vor dem 28.3.1956 auf dem Vorsatz 4-zeilig gewidmet: "Dr. O. Mertens (für eine zunehmende [Z-arbeit?]) herzlich bertolt brecht". Dr. Otto Mertens war jahrelang der Arzt von Brecht, der allerdings den Gesundheitszustand Brechts als weniger dramatisch einschätzte, als er tatsächlich war. Am 28.3. wurde er wegen einer deutlichen Verschlechterung von Brechts Zustand zu ihm gerufen, sah aber offenbar immer noch keinen Grund zur Eile und ließ sich über Gebühr Zeit. Diese Vorfall führte zum Bruch mit Brecht. Parker schreibt (Stephen Parker: "Bertolt Brecht: A literary life", 2014): "When he [Mertens] had still not turned up after two hours, Brecht's daughter Barbara went to fetch him...... Merten's relationship with Brecht, his family and close friends clearly broke down. What for Brecht was an emergency,..... was for Mertens seemingly something what could wait." SchU mit kleineren Randläsuren, diese mit professionellem Restaurationsband hinterlegt. Ansonsten sehr gut erhalten. Enthält weiter: Das Puntillalied, Notizen über die Züricher Erstaufführung, Anmerkungen zum Volksstück, Die Straßenszene, Chinesische Gedichte, Die Ausnahme und die Regel. Von Brecht signierte Bücher sind sehr selten! Rare!

        On stunning 20th Century Fox letterhead, a magnificently signed Marilyn Monroe contract which renegotiates the rising starlet's pay for filming Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Niagara

      "Document Signed, ""Marilyn Monroe,"" in blue ink, 2 pages, 8.5"" x 11"" on Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation letterhead, Beverly Hills, California, June 5, 1952, a contract concerning adjustments in Monroe's compensation schedule under her 1950 agreement with the studio during her time there as a contract player. Stapled at top left, two file holes at top margin, extremely light soiling, else fine condition. Signed at a pivotal point in Monroe's film career?"only three months after she and the studio had successfully diffused a scandal that threatened to derail her fledging career, when nude photographs from her now famous 1949 photo session surfaced. Instead of denying the allegations, she admitted to posing nude in a magazine interview, explaining that she hadn't the money to pay rent, and accepted the job out of desperation. The story cast her in a sympathetic light, portraying her as a struggling actress, and the strategy proved to be resounding public relations success. Only days after Monroe executed this contract, she flew to New York to begin filming Niagara, spending the week upstate and the weekends in New York City with her new boyfriend, Joe Dimaggio, who she had begun dating early in the year. In autumn, she began filming one of her most iconic roles: Lorelei Lee in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, in which she performed her memorable rendition of ""Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend."" 1952 also marked the rise of Monroe to national prominence as she took on more substantial film roles. In April 1952 she appeared on the cover of Life, who billed her as ""The Talk of Hollywood."" Briefly on loan to RKO, she appeared in Clash by Night with Barbara Stanwyick, which was released in June 1952. The following month, two films featuring Monroe appeared including We're not Married! and Clash by Night. In September 1952, Fox released Monkey Business, in which she appeared with Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers. It was in that film that Monroe appeared with her signature platinum-blonde hair. The August 1952 release of O. Henry's Full House, in which she appeared in a single, one minute scene with Charles Laughton, underscored her growing prominence. Despite the fact that her role was essentially a cameo, she received top billing, beside Laughton, Anne Baxter, and Farley Granger."
