        Life is Good and Good For You In New York: Trance Witness Revels

      Milano: Feltrinelli Editore, (1956). Milano: Feltrinelli Editore, (1956). Near fine in a close to near fine jacket with a few small edge tears, creases, and tiny chips, most prevalent at the spine ends. Two small tears at the top of the rear panel have been unobtrusively repaired by tape at the verso. This copy lacks the original booklet.. First Italian Edition. Quarto. A wild pastiche of images arranged in an ebullient anti sequence, reflecting not only the artist's pre pop predilections, but also his use of the Photostat machine at Vogue's New York office. The freedom this new technology afforded was central to Klein's innate desire to deconstruct documentary. New York, the first of four city books that Klein produced, remains one of the most sought after photography books of the mid-20th century, and a precursor to Warhol, Lorinczy, van der Keuken, van der Elsken and Moriyama. No text accompanies the images. (Parr / Badger, v1, 243; Roth 140-141; Open Book 164-165; Auer 365).

        Forbidden Planet

      Farrar Straus and Cudahy, New York 1956 - Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 184 pages; 1st edition. Philip MacDonald's novel treatment of the Cyril Hume screenplay for the grounmdbreaking science fiction film starring Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis, and Leslie Nielsen. A snug clean copy in original dust jacket with $3.00 issue price intact to unclipped front flap. Spine just a hair cocked but overall the book is in wonderful condition. The dust jacket is crisp edged and clean but has had the unfortunate attention of silverfish to all the white title lettering of the spine panel. The damage is confined to the surface of the spine panel and very largely follows the outline of the lettering with something in the color/ink clearly not to the bugs' liking. The result is a sort of nearly attractive crazing to the title lettering at spine. The front and rear panels are bright and clean with just trace helf rubbing at edges. The terminal leaf of the novel is the Postscript of pages 183 and 184. In this copy it is a cancel (that is, a page pasted in to the existing binding) suggesting that the Postcript was added after the book had already been printed. There is a small snag to the paper in the gutter of this final leaf, apparently caused by the binder's glue used tipping the page in. VG++/G+ [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The ETL-Mark 2 is described here, along with eight other Japanese computers: the FACOM, the FUJIC (Japan's first stored-program computer, completed in March 1956), the TAC (begun in 1952 and completed in 1959), the ETL-Mark 3, the Osaka University electronic computer, the Tokyo University Parametron computer, the NTL Parametron computer, and the Parametron PD-16.

        The Beast of Hollow Mountain

      Display Productions Ltd. [1956]. Display Productions Ltd. [1956], 1956. An original and scarce UK quad for United Artists' 1956 western sci-fi comedy horror (that's a fine genre crossover), starring Guy Madison. Folded, condition A (fresh). Approx dimensions 40x30 inches, landscape format, now with loose-backed board stiffener. This B-movie would have had a small release in the UK, and as such, original posters especially in such fine condition, are scarce. One Day After A Million Years It Came Out Of Hiding... An American cowboy living in Mexico discovers his cattle is being eaten by a dinosaur. As one does (keep off the moonshine, kid). Although low budget, 'The Beast from Hollow Mountain' was innovative, being the first feature film in color and widescreen to feature stop-motion composites (filmed in'Regiscope'). Note on Format; the 'quad' is a vertical view UK movie poster measuring approx. 30 x 40 inches, generally issued folded with one vertical and three horizontal creases. The standard (and most collectible) format for film posters in Britain, being the equivalent of the US 'one-sheet'.

Participants were dominated by ICA artists. Group 1: Theo Crosby, William Turnbull, Germano Facetti, Edward Wright; Group 2: Richard Hamilton, John McHale, John Voelcker; Group 3: J.D.H.

Kennedy on the front free endpaper, "To Barry Shear, with thanks and very best wishes John Kennedy." The recipient, Barry Shear was a television and film producer closely involved with the production of the 1960 Democratic National Convention, where he had this copy signed. Light wear, near fine in a bright dust jacket with a few small closed tears. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A nice association copy. The Pulitzer Prize-winning book was written when Kennedy was the junior senator from Massachusetts, and it served as a clarion call to every American. The inspiring accounts of eight previous heroic acts by American patriots inspired the American public to remember the courage progress requires. Now, a half-century later, it remains a classic and a relevant testament to the national spirit that celebrates the most noble of human virtues. Kennedy relates these heroisms to sketches of American politicians who have risked their careers for principle. "A man does what he must," he wrote, "in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures-and that is the basis of all human morality."

        Mies Van Der Rohe (Signed)

      Chicago: Paul Theobald, 1956. Chicago: Paul Theobald, 1956. First edition. Cloth. Very Good/very good. Clothbound quarto. 200 pp. Illustrated with numerous black and white photographs. First edition of this monograph on Van Der Rohe. A very good copy in very good price-clipped dustwrapper. This is a special copy of what would otherwise be a fairly ordinary book. This copy is not only SIGNED by Van Der Rohe (as well as Hilberseimer), but has also been SIGNED BY OVER 80 other architects, employees, friends, and or students or disciples of Van Der Rohe who all came together at one time to each sign this copy. The date of this ceremonial signing is unknown, but may have taken place in Sept. 1960 (the date Hilberseimer has written under his signature). It is also the year that Van Der Rohe was chosen by the American Institute of Architects for their Gold Medal Award for lifetime achievement in the field of architecture. It would not be too much to speculate that this group of his friends and colleagues came together at or around the time of his award to celebrate his life and career. A truly unique copy.

        Diamonds are Forever

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1956. London: Jonathan Cape, 1956 First edition, first printing of the fourth James Bond 007 adventure. Publisher's black cloth, with diamond pattern stamped in blind and diamond illustration stamped in silver to the front board, spine lettered in silver; in the original pictorial dust jacket designed by Pat Marriott, with an illustration of a woman wearing a diamond brooch to the front panel, spine and front panel lettered in pink and white, portrait photograph of Fleming by Douglas Glass to the rear panel. A very good copy, with some very minor wear to the spine ends, the slightest hint of offsetting to the free endpapers; unclipped dust jacket, with wear and minor chipping to the extremities, unfaded spine, a few light spots of soiling to the rear panel, small tape reinforcements to the jacket verso, bright panels. Overall, a handsome copy. Diamonds are Forever takes British Secret Service agent James Bond first to Sierra Leone and then to the United States in an attempt to thwart an illegal diamond smuggling trade. Impersonating the captured courier Peter Frank, Bond infiltrates the smuggling ring, where he meets the beautiful Tiffany Case, an American with a dark past. Additionally, Bond is assisted by Felix Leiter, a member of the United States Secret Service, who previously appeared in Live and Let Die. Despite his British citizenship, Fleming's "familiarity with many aspects of American life, shiny and shady, gives cold actuality to the most exciting and ingenious story he has written." Additionally, Fleming's background research for this novel, specifically the interviews he conducted with the International Diamond Security Organisation, ultimately formed the basis for his later non-fiction work The Diamond Smugglers. In 1971, Diamonds are Forever was adapted into the seventh Bond film, which starred Sean Connery as 007 and featured the iconic theme song "Diamonds are Forever" performed by Shirley Bassey. Interestingly, Connery was brought back to play Bond after being replaced by George Lazenby for the sixth film On Her Majesty's Secret Service, only to be replaced again in the following film, Live and Let Die, which would introduce Roger Moore as the new Bond.. Illus. by Marriott, Pat. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.
