Children's Art Project
Sainte-Étienne: Les Cahiers de l'Atelier, 1955. 8vo. 240 x 190 mm. (9 ½ x 7 ¼ inches). Original stiff wrappers decorated with the design of woodcut artist at work; with protective glassine wrapper. Illustrated with a pochoir-printed frontispiece in red, blue, yellow and green; linocuts in black ink throughout the text. With an original linotype of a flower printed in black ink laid in. First edition, one of 150 numbered copies printed for the "les Amis de l'Atelier". Under the direction of Gérard Blanchard, Anne-Marie Blaizot, Charles Rambaud, Angela Medici and Marcel Jacno, the Cahiers de l'Atelier devoted much of its time and energy to teaching children the techniques of the graphic arts. This work, Gravures d'enfants, is illustrated throughout with images and designs by the students of the atelier and brought to life in the form of linocuts, with the help of this distinguished staff. The work is illustrated with 63 linotypes in black ink, a full-page pochoir in four colors, and a single leaf linotype laid in. The images reflect the imagination of the children, and fall into categories of nature, science, home life, religious life, and child's play. The linotypes reflect the simple applications of line, some exquisitely executed and some more crudely applied. The book is a wonderful example of children expressing themselves though the medium of the graphic arts. Fine Copy.

1955. Here we have a 2nd Edition 1st Printing Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous with the original dust jacket and the ORIGINAL PAPER PROMOTIONAL BAND, published in 1955 and INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY BILL WILSON in New York in 1955 at Christmas, likely at the AA office Christmas party. Also, based on the inscription, Naomi was likely a delegate of some sort. The book and jacket are both in incredible condition. Very well preserved. No other writing. Very few defects. I've seen past listings of original bands but NEVER one signed by Bill. This book was sold ONLY at the 1955 AA International Convention, which had an attendance of about 5,000 people. Who knows how many books were sold at the convention, but only 10-15 of the original bands are known to exist. 2 ways to tell the DJ is correct... 1. no price on the front DJ flap and 2. the 'examination basis' paragraph on the rear flap. And because of fading you can tell the band is original to the DJ. 1st printing indicated by... 1. The front dust jacket flap indicates AA membership was 150,000. 2. The misspelling of the word really as "realy" in the sixth line of page xx. 3. The reference "* A.A. is now composed of nearly 6,000 groups (1955)" on the bottom of page 16. 4. There is no reference on the bottom of page xv as with later printings. 5. It states publisher as "Alcoholics Anonymous Publishing Company" on the copyright page - the only printing to ever state COMPANY. Feel free to message me with any questions.

Ian Fleming
Macmillan, 1955. First Edition/First Printing Stated; A very good book in a good dust jacket. A handsome copy of this novel being the 3rd in the Bond series and basis for the excellent movie. This volume is in very good condition with clean light green boards, sharp black lettering on the front board and spine, and clean white pages with just a hint of age toning to the edges. The book shows some minor browning to both spine ends and the edges (common for the title), some discoloration to the paste downs, and some staining and wrinkling to the front free paper and half title page (possibly a spill of some kind). Housed in a good dust jacket that is clean and bright with an intact price of $2.75 and only light shelf wear to the ends and edges; the jacket rates only good because at some point the bottom approximately 3/8" of the jacket was removed and a facsimile jacket was placed under the original to protect that part of the book and provide a more aesthetic look; some tape repair has also been done to the jacket at the spine foot. Interestingly, they did a great job; the extra jacket is unnoticeable inside the mylar cover (I didn't see it until I took the jacket off to take pictures!) Overall, this is a very nice copy of a scarce book (may be the scarcest of the early Bonds) that profiles well and looks great on the shelf! In archival protection.

Thompson, Kay; Hilary Knight, Illustrator
Simon & Schuster, New York, 1955. White publisher's cloth with offsetting and some soiling to edges of boards. Front hinge tender but holding. Light toning to textblock but else unmarked. Jacket bright and pleasing, with spine just the slightest bit darkened. A pretty copy of a charming book. A classic work of children's literature, featuring the precocious and adventurous Eloise. A six-year-old girl living among adults at the Plaza Hotel, Thompson's heroine is "not yet pretty but she is already a Person. Henry James would want to study her. Queen Victoria would recognize her as an Equal.she is interested in People when they are not boring." So iconic that a portrait of her hangs in the Plaza Hotel dining room, Eloise has inspired children for three generations (with many more to come!). Very Good + in Near Fine dust jacket.

KREYMBORG, Alfred (1883-1966)
1955. No binding & hard cover. Alfred Kreymborg was an American poet, novelist, playwright, literary editor, and anthologist. The son of a cigar-store owner, he attended public school in Manhattan and became a chess phenomenon by the age of ten. He began writing poetry in his late teens and soon became an active figure in the Greenwich Village literary circles. The first writer to be involved with Alfred Stieglitz's 291 gallery, he joined forces with the avant-garde photographer Man Ray in 1913 to create The Glebe, a Modernist journal. His first book of poetry, Mushrooms: A Book of Free Forms (1916), solidified his reputation as one of the first writers utilizing free verse. By the end of his life at the age of eighty-two, Kreymborg had edited several notable little magazines, written forty books, lectured, taught, and served as associate director of the Federal Radio of the W.P.A., president of the Poetry Society of America, and judge of the Pulitzer prize competition. The collection contains 15 items dating from 1916 to 1955 specifically, 7 typed signed letters, 1 autographed post card, 5 signed books, and 2 photos. 7 Typed Letters Signed (TLS): • 3 TLS to William W. Seward, Jr., President of the Poetry Society of Virginia, 6 August and 25 August 1953, and n.d., re giving a recital of his poetry and sending an inscribed copy of one of his books (Selected Poems). • TLS from Charles Hanson Towne (New York poet end editor), 21 February 1925, re "Pewee" in the current issue of Commonweal. • TLS from W.D.

Ray, Nicholas (director, story); Irving Shulman (adaptation); Stewart Stern (screenwriter); James Dean, Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo (starring)
Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1955. Final Draft script for the 1955 film. Copy belonging to actor Jack Simmons, who played the role of gang member Cookie, with his ownership name written boldly in holograph ink on top left of front wrapper.Script divided into Part I and Part II, dated 3/25/55 and 3/26/55, respectively. Two pages contain annotations in holograph pencil of additional dialogue. Laid in are three film stills from the knife fight sequence and one photograph compiling four headshots of Jack Simmons. Housed in a custom brown cloth, quarter brown leather clamshell box, with spine label, title in gilt. According to Randall Riese's 1991 book "The Unabridged James Dean," James Dean campaigned to get Jack Simmons, who he regularly arrived and departed the set with, the role of Plato (Sal Mineo), but screenwriter Stewart Stern, "wanted the role to have homosexual overtones - but he [Simmons] was too much." Riese goes on to say that Simmons was given the role of gang member Moose (as is attributed in the AFI catalog), the one that gives Dean's character, Jim Stark, the knife in the knife fight sequence. While he is in fact the character that gives Dean the knife, according to the script that character is Cookie, not Moose, who IMBD and Wikipedia correctly attribute to Simmons. According to Riese, Simmons also reportedly lived with Dean during the making of "Rebel Without a Cause," and according to some sources, up until Dean's untimely death.Nicholas Ray's searing melodrama of tormented teenagers Jim Stark (Dean), Judy (Natalie Wood), and Plato (Mineo) pitted against … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ray, Nicholas (director, story); Irving Shulman (adaptation); Stewart Stern (screenwriter); James Dean, Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo (starring)
Warner Brothers, Burbank, CA. Final Draft script for the 1955 film. Copy belonging to actor Jack Simmons, who played the role of gang member Cookie, with his ownership name written boldly in holograph ink on top left of front wrapper. Script divided into Part I and Part II, dated 3/25/55 and 3/26/55, respectively. Two pages contain annotations in holograph pencil of additional dialogue. Laid in are three film stills from the knife fight sequence and one photograph compiling four headshots of Jack Simmons. Housed in a custom brown cloth, quarter brown leather clamshell box, with spine label, title in gilt. According to Randall Riese's 1991 book "The Unabridged James Dean," James Dean campaigned to get Jack Simmons, who he regularly arrived and departed the set with, the role of Plato (Sal Mineo), but screenwriter Stewart Stern, "wanted the role to have homosexual overtones - but he [Simmons] was too much." Riese goes on to say that Simmons was given the role of gang member Moose (as is attributed in the AFI catalog), the one that gives Dean's character, Jim Stark, the knife in the knife fight sequence. While he is in fact the character that gives Dean the knife, according to the script that character is Cookie, not Moose, who IMBD and Wikipedia correctly attribute to Simmons. According to Riese, Simmons also reportedly lived with Dean during the making of "Rebel Without a Cause," and according to some sources, up until Dean's untimely death. Nicholas Ray's searing melodrama of tormented teenagers Jim Stark (Dean), Judy (Natalie Wood), and Plato (Mineo) pitted against their e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Huaqiao Minzhu Qingnian tuan [Chinese American Democratic Youth League, often known by the abbreviation of its Cantonese name, Mun Ching]
Mun Ching, San Francisco, 1955. Six newsletters, all mimeographed, 7x8.5 inches, minor pen marks or doodles on the cover, one with pencil doodles on the interior. Eralier issues are titled Min Qing Tuan Bao, later issues shortening this to Min Qing (Mun Ching in Cantonese). Text in Chinese. Issues present are whole numbers 117, 119, 121, 122 (special issue for the 15th anniversary of the organization), 123, and 130 (special issue to commemorate the May 5th literary and cultural movement). Also present, but not included in the count, is issue 184 from 1958, missing the back cover. Contents of these newsletters include updates on activities, members' discussions of how they became involved and what Mun Ching meant to them personally; updates on theatrical performances and clubs, and on a broader level, discussions of international politics and Marxist theory. Mun Ching began as the New Chinese Alphabetized Language Study Society, an organization in Chinatown devoted to alphabetizing the Chinese language in order to promote literacy in the working class. In 1943, in the context of China's battle against Japan, the group broadened its mission and re-named itself the California Overseas Chinese Youth League for National Salvation. They put on plays to raise money for care packages for Chinese American soldiers, also issuing mimeographed publications and building a library. By this point, political theater was a core part of the group's activities, as part of its outreach to the broader Chinese-speaking public. In 1946, the group was renamed the Chinese American Democratic Youth … [Click Below for Full Description]

CATHARINE DOWMAN
EXCELLENT. 'STORIES' by CATHARINE DOWMAN 1955 Privately bound 1955 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Catharine Dowman was the heir to the Courtaulds' fortune, and married Wilfred Dowman in 1920 while he was a mate on a sailing vessel. They spotted a vessel in 1922 called Ferreira off the coast of Falmouth and recognised it as the old clipper ship the 'Cutty Sark'. Owing to her wealth, they were able to purchase the ship, paying over the odds, and spent the next two years restoring her. She spent many years as a training ship, and on Wilfred's death in 1936, after two year decided to donate the ship to the Thames Nautical Training College giving £5000 for its upkeep. Catharine followed the Cutty Sark's history for the rest of her life, last visiting the vessel when she was 90 years old. Catharine died in 1972 aged 94, having lived her final years in Weymouth Dorset. Some years ago I purchased a number of items from a local auction house in Dorchester, from the Courtaulds family, with their crest. Among these books, which I have owned for several years, were these two volumes of short stories by Catharine Dowman, dedicated to her friend from Weymouth, Marjorie Wearne in 1955. The two volumes. bound in green cloth. 10 x 8 ins approx. containing four stories in each, obviously privately bound, typewritten on one side of the page, volume on with 104pp. and volume two with 98pp. Pencil notations in her hand pertaining to the origins of the stories.
