Nearly all images with series number bordering the image, but unlike similar examples from France, all sheets lack credits for the photo laboratory, film studio, film title, and often, the photographer. A few with cropping annotations in holograph pencil on the image, a few with brief annotations on the verso in holograph ink, and two loose photographs with ditto-style mimeo snipes on the verso, crediting original title, Boyer, Vidal, Bardot, and Boisrond. Housed in a blue paper 2-ring binder with French title mounted on the front with cello tape. Boisrond's fourth directorial credit is a comedy starring Bardot as the flirtatious daughter of the prime minister of France who marries a member of the cabinet (Vidal), who happens to be a womanizer. Taking control of the situation, she has an weekend affair with a prince (Boyer), and ultimately reunites with her husband after somewhat passive apologies.

Boris Leonidovic Pasternak
Feltrinelli Editore, Milano. Prima edizione mondiale (stampata il 15 novembre 1957). Traduzione di Pietro Zveteremich. Nella Nota dell'Editore viene riassunta la vicenda editoriale di questo romanzo: "Boris Pasternak ha terminato questo libro pià di 3 anni fa. Nel 1956 e nel 1957 la radio sovietica e la rivista Znamja ne avevano annunciato la prossima pubblicazione in Unione Sovietica.La nostra casa editrice, conoscendo il valore dell'Autore, ha provveduto ad assicurarsi i diritti di pubblicazione. Abbiamo cosà avuto direttamente dall'autore copia del manoscritto.In relazione alla preparazione dell'edizione italiana, à intercorsa una corrispondenza tra l'autore e la casa editrice sovietica intorno ai valori del libro e alla sua data di pubblicazione. In tale occasione, fu raggiunto un accordo che l'edizione italiana non venisse pubblicata prima del mese di settembre 1957. Alla fine dell'estate, quando ormai imminente era la pubblicazione e nulla faceva prevedere che nell'URSS fossero sorte difficoltà circa la pubblicazione, abbiamo avuto richiesta di restituzione del manoscritto da parte dell'autore, il quale manifestava il desiderio di rivederlo. Ci siamo perà trovati nell'impossibilità di accedere al desiderio dell'autore in quanto il libro era già in avanzato stato di lavorazione.Presentiamo quindi al pubblico italiano questa edizione nella originale stesura per cui a suo tempo si era concordata con l?autore la pubblicazione. Riteniamo che questa edizione del Dottor Zivago torni non solo ad onore dell Autore, ma della letteratura stessa alla quale egli appartiene". In UR … [Click Below for Full Description]

[No place], 1957. Bradbound printed wrappers. 12.5" x 12.5". Light wear on the wrappers, very good or better; internally fine. Contains 27 inserts that consist of high gloss album cover art and the sleeve art for a few 7" records for music produced by Jamie Records and their "bargain" label Mardi-Gras Records (the cover lists several other small independent companies including Gone Records, Gone Latin, Goldisc, and End Records, most of which were owned or founded by George Goldner between 1957-1962). The first four inserts in the book are for the Duane Eddy album "Have Twangy Guitar Will Travel" and the sleeve art for three 7" records by Eddy, "Detour" (both mono and stereo) and "Yep!" Aside for one more Eddy album, and a few "easy listening" albums, almost all - certainly way more than half - consists of the art for Latin music, almost always identified in the title as "cha cha cha" music, including Joe Cuba and Orchestra, Sonny Rossi and the Concord Hotel Orchestra, La Playa Sextet, Al Castellanos, Johnny Conquet and Orchestra, and Emilio Reyes. Certainly rare, and probably unique documentation and an interesting evocation of Latin music in the early 1960s. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

henry miller
new directions, 1957. Light wear and a couple marks to hardcover cover. Missing Dust Jacket. A couple pages have yellowing due to News Paper clippings being left inside. See Pics and feel free to ask questions! Rare copy of Henry Miller's "Big Sur and The Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch". This copy is a signed 1st edition signed by both Henry Miller and Emil White. It is addressed to "Frieda" or Frieda Mattick/Frieda St. Sauveur. Frieda was previously married to Paul Mattick, a Marxist Political writer. She later married again and took on his name St. Sauveur. According to the book "Marxism in a Lost Century: A Biography of Paul Mattick", Frieda often corresponded with both Henry and Emil. The only reason I know it is this "Frieda" is that I found 2 other books in the same collection signed and addressed to "Frieda Saint Sauveur". It also includes from news clippings as shown in the pictures. As you can see from the picture, the book shows light wear to the hard cover and some yellowing to pages where newspaper clippings of book reviews for Henry Miller's work were kept. There is no dust jacket for this copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

1957. An extraordinary and very interesting collection of 10 original signed hand tracing outlines from some of the most important orchestral conductors of the twentieth century. Each hand outline is traced in pencil and signed, each on a separate sheet titled Forget-Me-Not, some dated.

Some light overall toning and left edges rough; overall in fine condition. Each 7.5 x 10 inches (19 x 25.7 cm). [Attributes: In Dust Jacket]

PROKOSCH, Frederic
(Frederic Prokosch), Bankok, 1957. First edition. Batik self-wrappers with gold foil label. 12mo. Fine. One of 44 copies, this copy letter "C" is one of ten lettered copies in browned patterned paper. Inscribed by the author on the front fly with a Christmas greeting. In original mailing envelope hand-addressed by Prokosch (on which an old ink bookseller's description and price appears). A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. *OCLC* locates five copies.
