        From Russia, With Love (a James Bond novel).

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1957. - First Impression, Binding A. Publisher's hardback binding in pictorial dustjacket by Richard Chopping, correctly priced at 13/6. A beautiful near fine copy. The book is particularly fresh with bright foil-work and clean page edges. Jacket also crisp and fresh with a trivial amount wear to spine ends and one small chip to crown, ever so slightly age-toned to backstrip. Near fine; most unusual in this condition. This entry in the legendary James Bond series is an absolute classic; 007 does battle with SMERSH, the Soviet organisation of vengeance, interrogation, torture and death, and in particular their fearsome executioner Red Grant. Gilbert A5a (1.1) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Hawk in the Rain.

      New York: Harper & Brothers,, 1957. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles gilt to spine. With the dust jacket. The gatherings slightly loosened at the cords, the jacket tanned at the spine, but an excellent copy. First US edition, first printing, presentation copy of Hughes's first book inscribed to the poet and actress Isabella Gardner on the title page, "To Isabella Gardner with good wishes Ted Hughes." Gardner (1915-1981) was the Massachusetts-born great-niece of the important Boston art collector Isabella Stuart Gardner (1840-1924) and the cousin of the poet Robert Lowell. She studied acting at the Leighton Rollins School of Acting and the Embassy School of Acting in London, before moving to Chicago, where she edited the Poetry magazine from 1952 to 1956 under Karl Shapiro. Her fourth husband was the poet Allen Tate. She published four poetry collections in her lifetime, Birthdays from the Ocean (1955), The Looking Glass (1961), West of Childhood (1965) and That Was Then (1980). Here biography, Not at All What Once is used To: The Life and Time of Isabella Gardner, by Marian Janssen, was published in 2010. Sylvia Plath herself is noted to have considered Gardner a rival to the title "Poetess of America" (Journals, ed. Hughes & McCullough, p.211). Somewhat suggestively, Hughes has added, in pencil, his address while staying in Boston to the rear free endpaper, "Ted Hughes, Suite 61, 9 Willow St, Boston 8 -".

Quelques traces blanches de traits de craie sur l'étui sinon parfait état pour le reste. Après la mort de V. Hugo en 1885, la création poétique se libère et cherche un nouveau mode d'expression lyrique. Contrairement aux mouvements fantaisistes qui fleurissent en cette fin de siècle, la poésie de Jules Laforgue manifeste une véritable réflexion sur l'écriture et sur les rapports entre le réel et l'imaginaire. Oscillant entre philosophie et ironie, érudition et voix populaire, les Complaintes se démarquent par une esthétique de la surprise.

        Voltaire In Love (Signed By The Author : Association Copy)

      The First UK printing published by Hamish hamilton in 1957. The BOOK is in near FINE condition. A little offsetting to the end papers and a little dustiness to the text block,otherwise a lovely clean and tight copy. The WRAPPER is complete and in near FINE condition. Spine is slightly faded and toned but far less so than usually encountered. Two small closed tears to the lower spine folds and a little light spotting to the rear cover. The Cecil Beaton designed wrapper looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival protector. The book has been INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author to the half-title:'Maudie with love from Nancy'. The recipient was Lady Maud Harvey ,wife of Sir Oliver,the British Ambassador to Paris between 1948 and 1954. Nancy was initially scathing about the couple,describing him as 'odious' and ,in a letter to Lady Pamela Berry in 1949,nicknaming her as 'Morgue Harvey'. However,the couple went up in her estimations considerably and she became especially fond of Maude. as evidenced by this warm inscription. Scarce to find as a signed title and highly collectible with such attributes. Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.

Sheet size 38 x 50cm ?Doggett?s Coat and Badge is the prize and name for the oldest rowing race in the world. Up to six apprentice watermen of the River Thames in England compete for this prestigious honour, which has been held every year since 1715. The 4 miles 5 furlongs (7,400 m) race is held on the Thames between London Bridge and Cadogan Pier,Chelsea, passing under a total of eleven bridges en route. Originally, it was raced every 1 August against the outgoing (falling or ebb) tide, in the boats used by watermen to ferry passengers across the Thames. Today it is raced at a date and time in late July that coincides with the incoming (rising or flood) tide, in contemporary single sculling boats. The winner?s prize is a traditional watermen?s red coat with a silver badge added, displaying the horse of the House of Hanover and the word ?Liberty?, in honour of the accession of George 1 to the throne.In addition, each competitor to complete the course receives a miniature of a Doggett?s Badge for their lapel in a ceremony at Watermen?s Hall, in silver for the winner and in bronze for the others.

        Les Centaures et les jeux.

      1957Paris, Pierre de Tartas, 1957, in-folio, en feuilles, sous couverture illustrée, sous chemise et étui toilé rouille, dos orné d'une pièce de titre dorée sur chagrin bordeau, 117 pages. Bel ouvrage orné d'illustrations de Raoul DUFY. "La chevalerie amena le cheval à ses plus hautes destinées ... Les qualités du cheval agissent sur son cavalier... Son entrain l'entraîne, son élan l'élance...". "Raoul Dufy qui fut le chantre de la mer et du cheval a été un homme heureux... Il n'a connu la gloire que très tard, mais il a été heureux sans elle ..." qu'exprime le Docteur Roudinesco. Raoul DUFY (Le Havre 1877-1953 Forcalquier) eut une attirance passagère pour l'impressionnisme, puis le fauvisme (il abandonne cette direction en découvrant les toiles de CEZANNE) et le cubisme... Il acquiert auprès de son ami Paul Poiret un style moderne. Il associe lumière et couleur. Il travaille pour de multiples supports (papier, céramique, tissu pour Bianchini-Férier) ; Tout au long de sa carrière il illustra des livres et se lança dans la lithographie en 1920. "Il ne faut jamais suivre le texte. C'est une interposition que l'on introduit dans l'esprit du lecteur ; l'illustration c'est une analogie" (in Catalogue Raoul Dufy, 1999, 212). Tirage limité à 207 exemplaires numérotés. Un des XX exemplaires nominatifs de collaborateurs. Bel envoi de L'auteur "Pour Mâitre André Dérue, grand imprimeur, du plus haut goût et de la plus sûre audace". Infimes usures.

        Wild Strawberries [Smultronstället] (Original poster for the 1957 film)

      Svensk Filmindustri, Stockholm 1957 - Original Swedish illustrated poster for the 1957 film. After exploring his disillusion with religion in the "Faith" trilogy, Bergman took an unusually warm and humanistic view with this film, a quiet reflection on old age, youth, and isolation. An aging medical professor travels to his former university to receive an honorary degree, and finds himself in a euphoric state, moving between the present and an abstract dreamlike muse that embodies his many regrets and disappointments, but ending with a hauntingly beautiful return to the simplicity of his early days.28 x 39 inches. Lightly restored, linen-backed and rolled. Near Fine.

The recipient was Lady Maud Harvey ,wife of Sir Oliver,the British Ambassador to Paris between 1948 and 1954. Nancy was initially scathing about the couple,describing him as 'odious' and ,in a letter to Lady Pamela Berry in 1949,nicknaming her as 'Morgue Harvey'. However,the couple went up in her estimations considerably and she became especially fond of Maude. as evidenced by this warm inscription.

        LE SABBAT RESSUSCITÉ PAR LEONOR FINI

      SOCIÉTÉ DES AMIS DES LIVRES, PARIS 1957 - Legatura in mezza pelle rossa con angoli e piatti in carta marmorizzata, autore e titolo impressi in oro al dorso. Brossura originale in carta spessa goffrata internamente conservata con bella incisione all'acquaforte al piatto anteriore. 123 pagine numerate, 35 tavole incise all'acquaforte di cui 20 a piena pagina (compresa l'illustrazione della brossura). Esemplare numerato 75 di una tiratura limitata a 75 copie. "Nella produzione letteraria di Audiberti è reperibile, soprattutto in un primo tempo, il segno dell'educazione surrealista che ebbe inizio intorno al 1925, in seguito al suo incontro, a Parigi, con B. Péret. Ma nelle metafore bizzarre, nell'irrazionalismo talvolta paradossale delle situazioni e dell'espressione, A. rivela la sua volontà di andar contro corrente, e il suo fondamentale simbolismo si colora di un umorismo e di un'ironia a volte eccessivi." (Treccani). L'opera in esame è accompagnata da un sofisticato e finissimo apparato iconografico ideato ed eseguito da Leonor Fini, pittrice di origini italiane che visse la propria movimentata vita tra Parigi e Roma, nel ciclone culturale tra gli anni '30 e '70. La sua pittura richiamava fortemente lo stile surrealista, nonostante ciò non aderì mai ufficialmente al movimento (pur essendo una cara amica sia di Ernst che di Dalì), così da potersi affermare come meteora solitaria e brillantissima nella sua eccentricità e nel suo anticonformismo. Si dilettò a dipingere molte figure femminili, enigmatiche e circondate di simboli e allegorie, travestite con i mascheramenti che lei stessa amava molto indossare. Esemplare completo ed in perfette condizioni conservative. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
