        The Night of the Hunter

      New York: Harper & Brothers. (1953). First. First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper with the slightest of rubbing. Inscribed by the author soon after publication: "Kindest personal regards to my good friend Bob Carlitz, Davis Grubb. March 18, 1954". Basis for the memorable film directed by Charles Laughton and featuring Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, Lillian Gish, and magnificent camera work by Stanley Cortez. The script is credited to James Agee, who died a few months after the film was released, but reportedly Laughton, dissatisfied with Agee's work, rewrote it himself from scratch. Though now considered a classic, upon release the unusual and unique film was a critical and financial failure, and Laughton never directed again. A superb copy. Signed copies of the trade edition are much less common than the publisher signed presentation issue. .

        Dada 1916-1923, Sidney Janis, April 15 to May 9, 1953

      New York: Sidney Janis,, 1953. Texts by Tristan Tzara, Hans Arp, Richard Huelsenbeck and Jacques-Henry Levesque. Offset lithograph and screenprint exhibition poster/catalogue designed by Duchamp on tissue paper; folded version. Sheet size: 96.8 x 63.3 cm. A very bright copy with crumple marks. Presented in a black wooden frame. Poster/catalogue to accompany the Dada exhibition held at the Sidney Janis Gallery, New York. Duchamp produced the catalogue for the exhibition which was also assembled, curated and installed under his direction. The catalogue was distributed at the exhibition as a ball of crushed tissue. Duchamp also suggested a garbage bin be offered to visitors so that they could crumple up the catalogue and throw it away upon leaving the exhibition, our poster has crease marks suggesting this was the original fate of this piece. Duchamp considers this an original artwork and due to its ephemeral nature is rather uncommon.

        Original Science Fiction Illustration By Jay Landau for "Death of a Sensitive", Harry Bates, May, 1953 Issue of "Science Fiction Plus"

      No Publisher, No Location 1953 - Original illustration, ink on stiff board, by Jay Landau (later, famed painter Jacob Landau) for the sci-fi pulp story "Death of A Sensitive" from the May, 1953 issue of Science Fiction Plus. 9 7/8" x 9" overall size, image size is most of that (scan). Note:layout editor's note at the bottom of the image in scan, which says 7 3/8", refers to the size the image is to be in the printed issue, not the 9" width of this original. This was executed as line art on copper, as were most of Landau's pulp illustrations; this is this black and white for reproduction in that May issue. Annotation on front (see scan), also annotations on reverse. Former paste foxing from layout process one the reverse;none on front. Image itself is fine, as used by the publisher. Used to illustrate the Harry Bates story, "Death of a Sensitive" -a story deemed by Hugo Gernsback's editor, Sam Moskowitz, to be the best he ever published in the magazine (Bates was the author of, in Astounding Science Fiction in 1940, "Farewell to the Master", which later became the basis for the classic sci-fi film, "The Day the Earth Stood Still"). A moody illustration by Landau, who, as the pulp illustrator he was at that time, is hard to find on the original sci-fi art market. Though he loved science fiction and did a fair amount of early magazine illustration, he later was able to concentrate solely on the stylish, impactful, often socially conscious and always psychologically disturbing mainstream painting which was his first love and for which he later gained famed. His early professional work for publications was done as Jay Landau or J. Landau (often signed only "Landau"), but the later work was, of course, by "Jacob Landau". Landau died in November, 2001, at age of 85. The intimidating, moody nature of this illustration is, to a degree, in keeping with that later painting style. The May issue of Science Fiction Plus is not itself included here; scan shown with this listing for reference. Llng1 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Go Tell It on the Mountain

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1953. 8vo, (12), 303, (1, colophon)pp. Original color-printed wrappers, lower cover plain, backstrip faded, a few leaves creased in the outer edge, a remarkably good copy of this fragile survival. First edition, Advance Reading Copy in wrappers. Baldwin's first book, a semi-autobiographical novel. The book examines the role of the Christian Church in the lives of African-Americans, both as a source of repression and moral hypocrisy and as a source of inspiration and community. It also, more subtly, examines racism in the United States. Ã’Upon publication it was immediately hailed as a major treatment of black life in America and established Baldwin as the leading black novelist of his generation. Baldwin's objections to the art that appeared on this advance issue (he felt it too stereotypical) resulted in a different dustwrapper appearing when the first edition was released. A highly desirable cornerstone of any African-American literature collection. A Modern Library and Radcliffe book of the century.Ó (BTC 2011). It also subtly touches on gay and bisexual themes that would be more prominent in his later works.

        Problemist: Proceedings of the British Chess Problem Society, The

      British Chess Problem Society, Sutton Coldfield 1953 - [298]-612 pages with diagrams, illustrations, plates and tables. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 7 1/4") issued original green cloth with gilt lettering. Volume 4, numbers 1 thru 36 (Betts: 42-5) 1st edition. The Problemist started with volume 1 January 1926 and published bi-monthly. It originally had the subtitle Proceedings of the British Chess Problem Society but the words Proceedings of were dropped in January 1985. The foreword to the first issued, written by the editor T R Dawson, begins: "This little journal, bring Happy New Year Greetings to every member of the BCPS, will be to most of you a surprise calling for explanation. It origin lies in the desire to have a medium in which the Society, as a collection of units and as a unity, may give expression to its thought and life. Following a suggestion from Mr F. F. L. Alexander, at the last annual general meeting, I obtained quotations for printing this periodical which enabled me to formulate a practical scheme for its continuance within the limits of our income. The scheme was unanimously adopted at a special meeting on Nov. 27th last, with Mr B. G. Laws in the chair and I accepted the meeting's invitation to edit these pages. Our title is a happy suggestion from Mr C. D. Locock." T. R. Dawson continued as editor of The Problemist until May 1931 when he resigned to devote more time to The Problemist Fairy Chess Supplement which he had begun in August 1930 (in 1936 it was renamed The Fairy Chess Review). The post of editor of The Problemist was taken on by C. S. Kipping who held the position until his death in 1963. Subsequent editors have been John Ling, Colin Vaughan from March 1972, Paul Valois from May 1985 and John Rice from March 1999. All these general editors have been assisted by a team of section editors devoted to specific topics. The Problemist continues to be devoted essentially to orthodox chess problems, including regular columns on endgames, selfmates and helpmates using the orthodox chess pieces. A fairy chess column was reintroduced by A. S. M. Dickins in march 1968. In January 1997, as a result of modern computer production methods, the page-size of the magazine was reduced from the traditional quarto size to A5, though with more pages. Although the magazine is published by the British Chess Problem Society, membership of the Society is open to people throughout the world, and this is reflected in the names of the contributors of problem compositions and articles.
