        Pim Pandoer de Heks van's Heerenberg eerste uitgave met stofomslag

      Malmberg, 's-Hertogenbosch - Octavo, [23.75cm / 9.5inches], full gilt-reliëf doek w /-mylar beschermd stofomslag, blz. 151 . Geïllustreerd met b-w halftonen. Aarzel dan niet om te informeren met betrekking tot gegevens en / of extra foto's. . De echte naam van Pim Pandoer is Fer Donkers. Zijn familie van joodse afkomst is omgekomen tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Hijzelf ontsnapte aan de dood, waardoor hij twee kanten bij zichzelf ontwikkelde: de vriendelijke Fer en zijn onverzettelijke alter ego Pim. Hij is de pleegzoon van Bas en Marijke Baanders. In het eerste boek is hij nog een opiumsmokkelaar, later een onderzoeker bij de KEMA in Arnhem, privédetective en avonturier. Dankzij zijn veelzijdige talenten is hij in staat om een eigen onderzeeër, de Pegasus, te bouwen. In het tweede boek van de reeks wordt dit vaartuig vervangen door de Salamander, een rode amfibie-sportwagen die hij eveneens zelf in elkaar heeft gezet. In 1953 verscheen het eerste boek, Pim Pandoer, de schrik van de Imbosch, geïllustreerd door P. Nagtzaam, omslag door Frans Lammers die ook andere delen illustreerde. Schrijver Beke was leraar op een ULO in Arnhem. Hij had een avonturenboek voor zowel jongens en meisjes voor ogen. Daarom introduceerde hij de Amsterdamse tweeling Koos en Jenny Menning. Zij logeren bij hun oom Jan en tante Rie Menning en hun neven Henk en Bob in Arnhem en ontmaskeren de opiumsmokkelaar Fer Donkers, alias Pim Pandoer. In het tweede boek is Fer niet meer de schurk, maar neemt hij het als held op tegen zijn aartsrivaal, de Rode Spin. Omdat Fer Donkers werkt bij de KEMA in Arnhem komt hij voor zijn werk in heel Europa, en zelfs beleeft hij met zijn pleegvader Bas Baanders een avontuur in het mystieke Egypte (Pim Pandoer en De Groene Scarabee). In totaal verschenen 18 boeken in de periode 1953-1969. De hele serie is als Witte Raven Jeugdpocket herdrukt. De Serie van Pim Pandoer was een groot succes. De schrijver Carel Beke gaf na deel 16 (De ridders van de Turfburcht) aan bij uitgever Malmberg geen Pim Pandoer verhalen meer te willen schrijven.De uitgever heeft hem overgehaald om nog twee delen te schrijven. Deze twee laatste delen zijn in groot formaat vrij zeldzaam (zeker met kaft). Van deel 18 zijn zelfs maar twee drukken verschenen; dit is daarom een curiositeit. Als één recensent opgemerkt: "Ja, ja, een oude boer uit de Achterhoek, die meent dat hij behekst is, daar kun je alleen maar om lachen als je Fer Donkers heet. Trouwens ook Bas Baanders, en Koos en Jenny Menning nemen zo'n verhaal niet ernstig. Maar als er allerlei geheimzinnige stralenkransjes op de proppen komen, en als Franske - het zoontje van de rijke fabrikant uit Twente - opeens spoorloos verdwenen blijkt, dan slaat de schrik je toch wel om het hart. Het ene mysterie volgt op het andere, en niemand voelt zich nog veilig op de boerderij van Tommes. Maar een heks die een losgeld vraagt, dat is toch wel een heel rare heks. en die voelt zich niet zo heel veilig met Pim Pandoer in de buurt!" . Octavo, [23.75cm/9.5inches], full gilt-embossed cloth w/ mylar-protected dust jacket, pp. 151. Illustrated with b-w halftones. Please feel free to inquire as to particulars and/or additional photographs. As on reviewer noted: An old farmer from the Achterhoek, who believes that he is bewitched, since you can only but laugh when you Fer Donkers hot. Indeed Bass Baanders and Koos and Jenny Menning take such a story not serious. But if there is to come up all kinds of mysterious stralenkransjes, and if Franske - the son of the wealthy manufacturer from Twente - appears suddenly disappeared, the fear hits you anyway to heart. One mystery follows the other, and no one feels safe even at the farm of Tommes. But a witch who demands a ransom, which is quite a very strange witch . who does not feel very safe with Pim Pandoer around!

        Collection of Lakehurst Naval Air Station Material

      Lakehurst, New Jersey: , 1953-1981. Lakehurst, New Jersey. 1953-1981. A group of material related to the Naval Air Station Lakehurst including annuals, on-base newspapers, calendars, and guide books. Quartos annuals with dark navy boards and gilt covers for the years 1953, 1957, and 1960. These are accompanied by three consecutive issues of the base newspaper (The Airship) from 1957, two wrappered NAS Lakehurst guide books for 1966 and 1971, five comb-bound calendars of American Airship for 1976 and 1978-1981, and a second edition of Airship Operation World War II: 7 December 1941 to September 1945. Overall near fine with some light rubbing and wear. The material appears to have been collected by Stewart J. Hyland, a civilian worker on the base, who appears in each of three annuals; his ownership name appears in one as well. Also present are some scattered newspaper clippings related to Lakehurst and photocopies of articles about airships. Though Lakehurst is best known as the site of the infamous Hindenburg disaster, it has been in continuous use since its construction in 1916 and remains the largest naval aviation center in the Northeast. A detailed list is available upon request. .

        SEMI-COLON Vol. 1 Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6; Vol. II, Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4 [10 Issues, A Near-Complete Run]

      New York: Tibor De Nagy Gallery, nd [ca. 1953-1956]. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. 4tos.; 8.5" x 11" approx, with one issue slightly taller than the others. Printed self-wraps, all folded sheets made to create 4 pages each. Minor wear here and there. Some toning, edgewear. Very good or better overall. Rare near-complete run, lacking only the scarce final double issue, of this "poets' newsletter" edited by Myers and published by his gallery, Tibor De Nagy. Tibor De Nagy Gallery was in many ways ground zero not just for the abstract expressionist movement but for the first generation New York School poets as well. The gallery published early books from Frank O'Hara, John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, James Schuyler, and Barbara Guest and encouraged collaborations between them and the painters the gallery represented. SEMI-COLON, which ran 12 issues (including the final double number), served as something of a semi-private mode of communication between these New York writers, not unlike the way FLOATING BEAR would a decade later. Contributors to these issues include Saul Bellow, W.H. Auden, William Jay Smith, Wallace Stevens, David Jackson (all of Vol. II., No. 2 issue), Charles Henri Ford, Barbara Guest, James Schuyler, Fairfield Porter, John Ashberry, V.R. Lang (all of Vol. 1, No. 4 issue), James Merrill, John Wieners, Kenneth Koch & Frank O'Hara. The dates of these newsletters are somewhat in dispute. All are undated. Clay and Phillips date the first issue to 1950, but Tibor De Nagy was not founded until the following year. O'Hara's and Ashbery's bibliographers both suggest "[1955?]" for Vol. 1, No. 1. Most likely correct, however, are the dates 1953-ca. 1956 provided by the inventory and catalogue of the Myers' archive (on deposit at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art) and our date follows their lead. Individual issues are scarce; only the second substantive run we've handled. [Clay & Philips p. 293].

        Homemade Landscape Stereo Views of Philadelphia: Fairmount Park, Wissahickon Creek, and the surrounding areas

      Philadelphia, Valley Forge, etc. 1953 - A collection of 389 homemade stereo cards each with double mounted images. Most of the cards are approximately 5" x 2.5", each holding identical black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver images that are each approximately 2.5" x 2.5". A small number, perhaps a few dozen (mostly earlier cards) are a bit smaller with cards measuring 4" x 3", with the images each 1.5" x 2.25". Additionally there are three cards each lacking one of the images, and in one case, both images are present but the card mount lacking. A modest number of images are detached or a bit loose, but mostly very nice and near fine. The majority, but not all, are captioned and/or dated. Dates range from 1934 to the latest card, dated on New Years' Day 1953 (one dated in 1930, is an an outlier or perhaps misdated). Most are between 1935-1949.A wonderful collection of almost entirely outdoor scenes centered around Fairmount Park and Wissahickon Creek, displaying a fine eye for composition. Many, perhaps a bit more than half, are of lovely and bucolic wintery scenes, including skating, cross-country skiing, a horse-drawn sleigh, winding by-ways and lanes, snow-covered trees, and many other landscapes, with multiple images of Forbidden Drive, Valley Green Inn, and the Springfield and Rex Avenue approaches. Many of the images feature individuals, most of whom are identified. A very small number (perhaps a couple of dozen) seem to be from the general vicinity of Philadelphia and its suburbs (Valley Forge, Rancocas Creek, and Princeton), along with a smattering of, we assume, vacation photos (Washington, DC; Lake George and Buffalo, New York; and Montreal, Quebec).A fascinating and unusually large collection of of early amateur stereo views.

Widely considered to be one of the cornerstone works of American drama, the play is is still powerful and resonant today. A very attractive copy of this American classic.

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)*.

From the late 1950s until 1965, she served as publicity director for Houghton Mifflin. Writing to Bellow in late September 1964 on the publication of Herzog, she stated, "We need yr. gifts ... May you use them in joy" and wished that "seraphim and cherubim hover over the Belasco on Tues. evening", in reference to Bellow's The Last Analysis, which opened at the Belasco Theatre on 1 October 1964.
