        de Stijl 1917-1931

      London: Alec Teranti, Ltd, 1956. 8vo (9¼ x 7 inches). viii, 293 pp. Four color plates showing designs by Mondrian, Rietveld, Van der Leck, and Van Doesburg and Van Eesteren; and 48 black-and-white plates at end on 24 sheets. Original cloth. Light age-toning to sheet edges; minor handling wear to binding. A SUPERB ASSOCIATION COPY GIVEN BY HANS SCHLEGER TO PAUL RAND IN 1969, inscribed in Rand's hand on the title-page: "London Oct 3.69 from Hans Schleger." EXTENSIVELY ANNOTATED BY RAND: 71 pages bear a total of 164 of Rand's pencilled notes, underlinings, and doodles. In total, 91 phrases or sentences are underlined, 63 notes in margins repeat or amplify ideas, and there are five doodles, four annotated commentaries, and one correction. Rand, the leading American modern graphic designer of the day, visited Schleger (1898-1976) in the autumn of 1969 in London. Rand admired Schlegel, or Zero as he was known, once praising his role in modern design: "Hans Schleger was a graphic designer before the concept of graphic designer was invented." Zero pioneered the concept of corporate identity, working on logos and branding for John Lewis, Penguin Press, and Finmar Furniture, among other companies. The two designers met soon after the war at the Arts Club in Dover. "It was only a short time after we left the club that we were walking arm-in-arm along Picadilly, destined to be friends" (Paul Rand, quoted in Stephen Heller, 'Paul Rand.') Rand shows an active engagement with Jaffe's text on de Stijl, early in the text marginally noting "dynamic equilibrium" (p.5) as an ideal of the movement. A number of Rand's notes mark points of comparison with Bauhaus tenets, and at one point he makes special reference to the concept of play in de Stijl practices (p.100). There are several notes in the section on Van Doesberg's writings on a new architecture (pp.160-61). A rather vehement note of "No Math!" accompanies Jaffe's writings on the need to step away from mathematical composition (pp.104-105). This important association copy, connecting two twentieth century masters to one of its major design movements, is accompanied by two evocative documents of the trip: 1. Paul Rand's boarding pass from his flight aboard the Concorde. Rand's name is written in twice on the die-cut ticket. He sat in seat 1B. 2. Rand's manuscript notes and drawings on a sheet of lined paper. Two pages on one sheet, 8 x 5 inches. Includes a dozen small drawings in blue ink, and notes for a lecture on de Stijl (including a reference to Matisse): "The story of modern art is the story of The Transformation of the 3 dimensional world of the documentary to the 2 dimensional world of the imaginary."

      Her Majesty's Stationery Office (HMSO), 1956 2018-01-04. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/No Jacket. PRICE IS FOR THIS SET PLUS THE REST OF THE 'HISTORY OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR UNITED KINGDOM' SET (92 VOLUMES TOTAL). First editions, except for volume 2, which is a 1971 2nd printing with amendments. An exceptional set. 1956 Hard Cover. Complete set, six volumes in seven parts. xxvi, 859; xix, 635; xv, 401; xi, 406-783; xxvi, 773; xvii, 634; xvi, 422 pp. 8vo. An account of the over-arching strategy employed by British forces during World War II. Numerous fold-out maps and charts throughout text. Somewhat curiously, the first volume of the series, which according to the editor's preface was planned as an introduction to the series, was published last, in 1976 - the other volumes were released between 1956 and 1970. This allowed for inclusion of material that was still classified when five of the other six volumes were published, but as a result complete sets are somewhat more difficult to compile.

        Zoo Quest to Guiana [with] Zoo Quest for a Dragon [with] Zoo Quest in Paraguay [with] Quest in Paradise [with] Zoo Quest to Madagascar [with] Quest under Capricorn. THE 'ZOO QUEST' SERIES COMPLETE IN DUSTWRAPPERS

      Lutterworth Press. 6 vols., 8vo., First Edition, with coloured frontispieces and very numerous coloured and monochrome plates throughout, neat signature on front free endpaper of first volume; original cloth (green/red/green/red/blue/green respectively), gilt backs, a very good, bright, clean set in dustwrapper, the wrappers mildly chipped at extremities but with no major loss. A bright, fresh set in the original colourful wrappers of Attenborough's earliest books, recording his 'Zoo Quest' animal-foraging expeditions in many different territories. Well-illustrated and delightfully written, these early titles display much of the talent and infectious charm that has since made their author a naturalist, broadcaster and presenter of world renown. The series captures well the appeal of his first-ever television series 'Zoo Quest' that ran on the BBC from 1954-1964. It also gave rise, incidentally (in those far-off pre-computer days), to a highly popular board game! The sequence comprises 'Zoo Quest to Guiana' (1956), 'Zoo Quest for a Dragon' (1957), 'Zoo Quest to Paraguay' (1959), 'Quest in Paradise' (1960), 'Zoo Quest to Madagascar' (1961) and 'Quest under Capricorn' (1963). Two omnibus volumes of extracts were published for a new generation of readers in the 1980s. COMPLETE SETS IN THIS CONDITION ARE SELDOM OFFERED FOR SALE.

        Malone Dies

      Grove Press 1956 - The middle volume of Beckett's landmark trilogy, the first American edition of Malone Dies came with a plain blank canvas cover with the title and author's name stamped in black on the cover and spine, and an extremely fragile plastic dust jacket, completely blank except for the price ($3.75) stamped on the inside flap. This edition was numbered, 1-500, and this is copy number 211. The book itself is in fine condition, with only some tanning on the front flyleaf to indicate this is not a new book. The glassine dust jacket has two noticeable tears, but the price is intact. A truly striking and unique package, a key work of 20th-century literature, and a worthy addition to any Beckett collection. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Chronicles of Narnia:] The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe; Prince Caspian; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; The Silver Chair; The Horse and His Boy; The Magician's Nephew; The Last Battle.

      London: Geoffrey Bles [and] The Bodley Head, 1950-1956 - 7 volumes, octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in full morocco, various colours, titles and pictorial centre tools to spines gilt, rule to boards gilt, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, floral endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a dark blue leather entry slipcase. An excellent set. With colour frontispieces and black and white illustrations by Pauline Baynes. All first editions, first impressions. A complete set of the much acclaimed Narnia series. "The immediate inspiration for 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' was a series of nightmares that Lewis had had about Lions. More seriously, he was concerned to do for children what he had done for an adult readership in his science fiction trilogy. The Narnia novels are not allegorical; they are entirely in keeping with the belief, shared by Lewis and his close friend and Oxford colleague Tolkien, that stories in themselves, especially of the mythical type, can give spiritual nourishment without imparting abstract meaning. As Naomi Lewis has written, the books are 'intoxicating' to all but the most relentlessly unimaginative readers, and must be judged the most sustained achievement in fantasy for children by a 20th century author".

      London: Foyle [The Book Club], 1956-1966.. 11 volumes complete. Octavos, publisher's hardbacks in dust-wrappers. Some toning and and occasional spotting to the cheap paperstock, minor wear as expected, but generally a very bright set, housed in a custom-made fleece-lined slipcase. The entire run of the popular British book club editions, which began in 1956 with 'Live and Let Die'. In total eleven of the fourteen James Bond titles were issued in this format and this set is complete as published. The books were offered in this cheaper format, usually one year after the Cape first editions- some share the same Jonathan Cape artwork, but after the 'Thunderball' painting was damaged while on loan in America, Cape would no longer lend out their original art; as such the Book Club commissioned their own action-packed and striking cover designs.
