        Large photograph of Picasso in his study with Lump, his beloved dachshund; gelatin silver print, photographer's stamp on verso and trim markings also on verso

      On the suggestion of friend and fellow photographer, Robert Capa, Duncan traveled to France to meet Picasso in 1956. Picasso would become a friend and the subject of seven photographic books. Their friendship lasted until Picasso's death. Picasso referred to Duncan as his "Ishmael" and Duncan called Picasso "Maestro." With photographs of Picasso and his dog taken in 1957, Duncan produced a photographic book on Picasso and his dachshund Lump titled, "Picasso & Lump: A Dachshund's Odyssey" published in 2006. Our image is not included in the book. Note: Lump is German roughly translated into English as rascal or rogue. Framed in black wood with dark gray archival mat and conservation glass so that the photographer's stamp shows through a window on the back. Frame measures 15 x 19 1/2 inches with image shown measuring 8 1/2 x 12 inches. A striking ensemble.

        Lee Oswald

      [1956]. Offered is one piece of the 19 remaining pieces from Lee Harvey Oswald’s electric football game.<br /><br />Lee Harvey Oswald’s mother, Mrs. Marguerite Oswald, testified before the President’s Commission on the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Washington, D.C., on the morning of February 12, 1964. Present were Chief Justice Earl Warren, Chairman; Representative Hale Boggs and Representative Gerald R. Ford, members. Also present were J. Lee Rankin, general counsel; Wesley J. Liebeler, assistant counsel; and John F. Doyle, attorney for Mrs. Marguerite Oswald.<br /><br />Excerpt from Mrs. Oswald’s testimony: ““Lee was a very quiet and studious boy. None of my children gave me any trouble, thank God. We have no police record, sir, or anything like that. And the children were always more or less home. And particularly Lee. Lee would go to the movies, and things like that. He was a normal boy. But when he was home, he was most happy. And I am of this disposition. He could keep himself occupied - - reading and when he watched a football game on television, he would have the score pad, and things of that sort. And so he was quite happy in his own way ... While Lee was working for Tujague & Co. he started to have a bank account, and it was in a Homestead. I do not know the name, but it was on Canal Street, 900 or 100 block of Canal Street, because it was even with Exchange Place. And he started to save his money ... Are we in 1955 in New Orleans? Yes. No, 1956 this would be. January, 1956--Lee took his money out of the Homestead, which was approximately $150, or something like that. And Lee Harvey Oswald bought an electric football machine cost approximately $10. He bought a bow and arrow set--maybe about $6 or $7. And he bought a gun.”<br /><br />Accompanied by a signed statement of Robert L. Oswald, brother of Lee Harvey Oswald: “To Whom It May Concern: My brother Lee was born in New Orleans in 1939. Lee and my mother moved back to New Orleans from New York City in January 1954 when Lee was 14. It was while he was living in New Orleans that Lee bought an electric football game. When I was discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps in July 1955, I settled in Fort Worth, Texas. In the Summer of 1956, Mother and Lee moved from New Orleans to Ft. Worth where we shared an apartment. Over the years, a few football player pieces were lost. I now transfer ownership of the remaining 19 football player pieces bought by and belonging to Lee to John Reznikoff of University Archives in Westport, Connecticut.”<br />

        The Making of the King James Bible: A Monograph, with Comparisons from the Bishops Bible and the Manuscript Annotations of 1602, with an Original Leaf from the Great "She" Bible of 1611

      Los Angeles: Plantin Press for Dawson's Book Shop, 1956. Folio. 31pp. One of 290 copies printed at the Plantin Press for Dawson's Book Shop. Though this title usually only includes one original leaf, this particular copy contains two, one from the Book of Proverbs and another from the Book of Matthew, both with two woodcut initials. The "Great She Bible of 1611" is really a corrected version printed in 1613 of the "Great He Bible of 1611", in which a typographic error results in the Book of Ruth having a "he", referring to Boaz, placed where a "she", referring to Ruth, should be. The "Great She Bible" is thus the second authorized printing of the King James Bible, with the "He" version being the first. Willoughby's comprehensive monograph on the King James Bible discusses the factors that impacted the first printing, and is illustrated with facsimiles from the 1611 edition. Leaves show some foxing and minor wear to edges, else fine. Bound in quarter cloth and printed boards in glassine. Some rubbing to corners and mark on front board. Near fine overall. Bookplate. (BCC #45; Chalmers 113, p. 84).

      No publication details. 1956 - 1950s Chinese Nuclear Science Poster set, incomplete (15 posters of 30), in colour. Each poster is numbered and depicts a detailed image for example a variety of types of nuclear weapons and defence construction with explanative notes.

The posters in this group vary from being in reasonable secondhand condition to poor condition. Each shows signs of wear, creasing, closed tears and some with loss mainly on edges and corners. Most posters are torn with considerable loss at one corner and in two cases this has caused loss to the image. Many have been mended with tape on the reverse along some edges, there is some marking mainly on reverse though in one case on the poster itself. On the reverse of poster 23 there is an amateur painting and some painted text. Text in Chinese. The poster sizes vary, ranging approximately from approximately 55 x 77 to and 77 x 53cm. An interesting collection of posters which clearly shows that China was as deeply concerned about nuclear war during the Cold War as it's neighbours Russia and the United States across the Pacific.

Poster no. 8 shows the materials to be used to build nuclear protection trenches as well as the construction methods.

Poster no. 10 shows images of the type of bomb shelter known "light bomb shelter" and a floor plan with information about its accommodation capacity (8-10 people), estimated time to build (15 days) and materials to use.

The heavy bomb shelter is used as a command office when needed. Poster no. 12 includes 9 images showing different nuclear protection bunkers built for various weapons and equipment such as 57 x 85cm cannon, 122 x 152cm howitzer, rocket artillery, tank, self-propelled artillery, trucks and communication equipment.

A legend on the lower section shows correspondent names for the coloured routes. Detailed plans designed for searching nuclear contamination source and safe routes to take within the contamination zone. The routes are shown and numbered. Each squad consists of one squad leader. Poster no. 15 features an image of the special squad for detecting radiation level, and very detailed information on their responsibility and action plans.

        The Angry Red Planet.

      Stafford and Co. Ltd, Nottingham and London [1956]. An original and scarce UK quad for the 1959 sci-fi horror 'The Angry Red Planet', an 'Invasion of Mars' film concerning the first manned flight to and exploration of planet Mars. Folded, condition B (fresh, corners clipped). Approx dimensions 40x30 inches, landscape format. The movie was made with a CineMagic technique which was applied for all of the scenes on the surface of Mars. This was an attempt to make the hand drawn animations appear as real as the live action footage; the rat-bat-spider-crab was particularly terrifying, and remains one of the most effective monsters of all time; it later appeared in the music video for Iron Maiden's anthemic single 'The Number of The Beast'. 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'.

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd,, 1956-8. 4 volumes bound in 2, large octavo (240 x 150 mm). Bound by the Harcourt bindery in near-contemporary blue crushed morocco, spine gilt lettered direct, spine gilt to compartments within five raised bands, double gilt fillet to covers, gilt roll-tooled turn-ins, blue marbled endpapers, top edges gilt (removing the original red). Illustrated with maps and genealogical tables. Spines heavily faded, covers slightly faded around edges, minor marking to top edges. Initial blanks and the last blanks of volumes II and III removed by binder. An excellent set. First edition, first impressions, of Churchill's famous History, bound together in a handsome set. Churchill began his history of the British Empire and the United States during his period in the political wilderness in the early 1930s, but did not complete it until after his retirement in the late 1950s. The events of the Second World War, the major interruption in the writing process, had reconfirmed his belief in the "special relationship" between Britain and the United States. Consequently he gave considerable attention to the key events of American history: around a quarter of the third volume, The Age of Revolution, is dedicated to the War of Independence, and a full third of the final volume, The Great Democracies, contains a detailed study of the American Civil War.
