        Image par Images (Animation flip book inscribed to Hans Richter)

      Paris: Galerie Denise René, 1955. Flip book for "Le Mouvement" (April, 1955), a kinetic art exhibition by Galerie Denise René, inscribed "To Mr. [Hans] Richter / with thanks for your patience & interest / Robert Breer." With a note of provenance on the stationery of filmmaker Standish Lawder. Scarce. "Image par Images" features animation similar to that found in Breer's landmark shorts "Fuji" (1974) and "Swiss Army Knife with Rats and Pigeons" (1981). Breer's minimalist style is very much indebted to early animation pioneers like Mary Ellen Bute and Hans Richter, whose "Rythmus" series (1921-1925) share Breer's concerns with cadence and geometry. Breer's reverence for his predecessor is apparent in his inscription. Flip book, side stitched. 5 x 3.5 inches. Text block and rear wrapper Near Fine, Front wrapper Fair, detached with paper loss at the left margin, staples oxidized and bent. Still, a presentable copy of a primitive, hand made production.

        Our Miss Brooks (Original screenplay, producer David Weisbart's presentation copy)

      Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1955. Final shooting script for the 1956 film, based on the radio and television series of the same name. Producer David Weisbart's bound presentation copy, including a staff and cast list with contact phone numbers and a page describing the central characters in detail. The film version of "Our Miss Brooks" capped several years of a very successful run with the same character, at first on the radio (1948-1955), then on television (1952-1955), with Eve Arden starring as the title character in nearly all its episodes. Arden's "Miss Brooks" is an English teacher at a midwest high school, an interestingly feminist character stuck in the mid-1950s, who remains steadfastly single but is still charming and with a barbed wit, placing the control of her classroom ahead of all things--though she does secretly pine for the biology teacher Mr. Boynton. Red sheepskin with raised bands, gilt design, titles, and rule. Title page present, with credits for screenwriters Lewis and Quillan, dated 7/20/55 (script pages are all individually dated 7/20/55 as well). 104 leaves, mimeograph, Pages and binding Near Fine, with a few small, faint stains to the latter.

"At rehearsals of her act with the Williams Brothers, Thompson (who was a professional singer) prized punctuality. Then one day she was late. In a high, childish voice that she had never used before, she made her apology. One of her co-workers said, 'Who are you, little girl?' Thompson replied, 'I am Eloise. I am six.' The others joined in the game, each assuming a juvenile identity, and it became a regular rehearsal pastime" (New York Times). A book soon followed, three more were soon released.

Commencé à l\'âge de quatorze ans, réécrit alors qu\'il en avait vingt-deux, l\'ouvrage fut achevé en 1952 et publié trois ans plus tard, aux Éditions de Minuit, grâce à André Malraux, tiré à mille exemplaires (dont 500 furent mangés par les rats dans un dépôt en Normandie) et illustré de seize portraits de l\'auteur par Pablo Picasso, qui fut l\'initiateur de la souscription et dit à ce poète : « Tu es celui qui a fait sortir la littérature française de son style Louis-Philippard ». Malraux, qui considérait ce texte comme « l\'un des ouvrages majeurs du XXe siècle », écrivit à son jeune auteur : « On vous découvrira dans trente ans. Oratorio pour la nuit de Noël est un chant de l\'adolescence, l\'apocalypse d\'un enfant de l\'Assistance publique qui découvre le monde et se découvre lui-même, au-delà d\'une improbable famille. Le texte, dont le titre fait référence à l\'œuvre de Jean-Sébastien Bach, est construit selon la structure musicale d\'un oratorio, à partir de thèmes qui sont repris et développés selon le principe de la fugue, en un style qui fait tourbillonner les mots, éclater le langage, en mêlant calligrammes, recherches typographiques, le tout formant une « étrange musique » (les premiers et derniers mots de l\'œuvre).»// interner vermerk ISS-23790 ISBN 9782868180131 Versand D: 2,20 EUR

        Holograph manuscript and note, signed and dated Lisbon, September 1955, to fellow poet Robin Skelton

      Lisbon, 1955 - Single sheet torn from a larger sheet, 21 x 16 cm, folded in four, approximately 100 words, written in ink on both sides. ? Campbell briefly writes: "Dear Robin, Excuse haste. Was away in Spain when your letter came. How about this satirical fragment on T. E. Lawrence? Best wishes, Roy Campbell." On the verso is an 18-line savagely mocking poem, in Campbell's holograph, entitled "A British N.C.O to T. E. Lawrence, on The Mint. (For Richard Aldington)." with footnotes. Apparently not published. ? Campbell is responding to the first English edition of The Mint, which was not published until 1955 (there had been a highly limited edition in 1936), in which Lawrence recounts his unfortunate experiences in the R.A.F which followed his well known and publicized triumphs. Provenance: From Bertram Rota Ltd. Catalogue 150 (Spring 1967), item 17, and later from the collection of a San Francisco collector of Roy Campbell. ? From the inventory of Burton Weiss, Bookseller.

        La Hojarasca.

      Bogota: Ediciones- S.L.B., 1955. First edition of the Nobel Prize-winning author's first book. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers. In near fine condition with only a few closed tears. Signed by the translator Gregory Rabassa on the half title page, with the opening sentence transcribed, "Nada en este mundo debe ser mas tremendo que los escombros de un hombre. Gregory Rabassa." Rabassa was the translator of La Hojaraca into English and Cien Anos de Soledad. Laid in is the original Bogota bookseller's bookmark. Garcia Marquez has been quoted as saying that prior to the publication of One Hundred Years of Solitude none of his books had sold more than 700 copies. Despite the poor sales and even after the success of Cien Anos de Soledad, Garc?a M?rquez described La Hojarasca as the favorite of his own works because of its spontaneity and honesty. This present example was purchased upon publication and well-cared for. This is by far the nicest example we have seen. La Hojarosca was first published in Bogota, Columbia in 1955, later translated into English and published in 1972, as The Leaf Storm. Widely celebrated as the first appearance of Macondo, the fictitious village later celebrated in One Hundred Years of Solitude, La Hojarosca was a testing ground for many of the themes and characters later immortalized in One Hundred Years of Solitude. "Garcia Marquez has extraordinary strength and firmness of imagination and writes with the calmness of a man who knows exactly what wonders he can perform" (Alfred Kazin, New York Times Book Review).

        The Colours of Memory [Presentation Copy]

      NY: Grove Press. (1955). Poetry, issued in a lettered edition of 26 copies and a numbered edition of 250 copies: this is a presentation copy (designated as "s.c. 3 for Nancy"), signed by the author and, as with the lettered issue, with an original drawing by Irene Rice Pereira, the author's wife, signed by the artist as frontispiece. It can be assumed that the presentation copies ("s.c" -- "special copy"?) were even more limited than the lettered copies, as is almost always the case in the issuance of limited editions such as this. A fine copy in a professionally restored dust jacket. Laid in is an autograph holiday card addressed to Nancy and her partner and signed by Reavey for himself and Irene, with an image by Pereira from the collection of the Whitney Museum. A significant volume, with an original work of art by a distinguished American abstract artist: Pereira's work is in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art, the National Museum of American Art, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts, among many others. First Edition. Hardcover.
