        The Alexandria Quartet, comprising: Justine. Balthazar. Mountolive. Clea.

      London Faber and Faber -1960 1957 - First editions, first impressions, four volumes, 8vo., comprising Justine, a little light foxing to endpapers and text block edges, jacket professionally restored mostly to top edge and closed tear on upper panel, 1957; Balthazar, jacket browned on spine and extremities, a little restoration to spine ends and corner-folds, 1958; Mountolive, two neat tape marks to each pastedown and closed tear to front free endpaper, 1958; Clea, usual fading to spine and age toning, 1960; all internally very good to fine, original cloth, bright, in all a good set. At the age of 11, Durrell, who was born in the North of India near Tibet, was obliged move to England. He disliked living in such a different country and culture and never fully adapted to it. Only later, in 1935, when he and his family made a decision to live in Greece he felt that it reminded him of India. While in Greece, he drafted a novel entitled The Book of the Dead, a predecessor to his first volume of The Alexandria Quartet. However, only much later, in 1952, after his return to the Mediterranean, Durrell began actually writing Justine. During the 1940s he had worked for the British Information Office in Egypt. He was separated from his first wife, Nancy Myers, and in Alexandria he met Eve Cohen, a Jewish woman on whom the character of Justine is loosely based and who became his second wife. Durrell would eventually complete the Quartet in France. The Alexandria Quartet was a success, both with the critics and with an increasing readership and Durrell was acknowledged as being one of the most important writers of his time.

        Otto Preminger, Jean Seberg, Mylene Demongeot, and David Niven on the set of "Bonjour Tristesse" (1957)

      Columbia Pictures, Culver City, CA 1957 - Vintage oversize double weight photograph of Jean Seberg, Otto Preminger, David Niven, and the stand-ins for Seberg and Niven on the set of "Bonjour Tristesse" in the late summer of of 1957 in Côte d'Azur, France. Shot, struck, and mounted by the film's still photographer, Bob Willoughby. Willoughby's notations regarding same present on the verso, along with Willoughby's stamps, and a stamp for the Sygma Agency in Paris. Full provenance available.In a subtle homage to early cinema, Preminger took the uncommon approach of interspersing black-and-white sequences in what was primarily a color film, and pitted the seasoned stalwart David Niven against young and unconventional Jean Seberg, the latter fresh from her internationally acclaimed performance in Godard's "Breathless."After studying with Saul Bass at the Kann Institute of Art in Los Angeles, Willoughby began working as a photographer for magazines such as "Life," "Look," and "Harper's Bazaar" in the late 1940s. It was while on assignment covering Judy Garland in a "A Star is Born" that Willoughby's ability to capture his subjects' spontaneity, humor, and vulnerability, resulting in images that were far different from more traditional film stills, came to Hollywood's attention and earned him his first "Life" magazine cover. Willoughby spent the next 20-plus years working as a set photographer for every major studio, documenting some of most important films of the era and creating intimate portraits of some of Hollywood's greatest celebrities. Technically and stylistically innovative, Willoughby built the first remote radio-controlled cameras used on film sets, pioneered the use of the "silent blimp" for 35mm cameras, and created brackets to mount his cameras directly over the movie cameras to capture the same images.Willoughby moved his family to County Cork, Ireland in 1972, working on only a handful of films through the late 1970s and early 1980s, though he would continue to photograph, exhibit, and publish books for the remainder of his life. The stills in this collection were given by Willoughby to friends in Kilbrittain, Ireland just prior to his move to Vence, France in 1989, where he would remain until his death in 2009.Perhaps more than any other photographer, Willoughby is responsible for creating the the look of mid-century celebrity and moviemaking in the popular imagination, with his images printed in magazines literally every week of his career. But beyond being prolific, Willoughby's legacy rests with his ability capture the essence of the actors he photographed, as well as the films with which those photographs were associated. As Sydney Pollack said in his introduction to Willoughby's autobiography, "Sometimes a filmmaker gets a look at a photograph taken on his own set and sees the 'soul' of his film in one still photograph. It's rare, but it happens. It happened to me in 1969, the first time I looked at the work of Bob Willoughby during the filming of "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?"Willoughby's photographs are in the permanent collections of ten museums, including The National Portrait Galleries in Washington, DC and London, the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Tate Modern.11 x 13.75 inches. Near Fine. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A Theory of Consumption Function.

      Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1957. First edition of the economist's magnum opus. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in near fine dust jacket with some toning to the spine and a few small closed tears. Milton Friedman's masterpiece of economic theory "reinterpreted that Keynesian concept of the consumption function by relating it to lifetime instead of current income. For its ingenious manipulation of data and its reconciliation of apparently conflicting evidence, this book must rank as one of the masterpiece of modern econometrics" (Blaug, 63). "Milton Friedman offered conservative answers to the great questions of economics, at the same time challenging economic thought since Keynes. In this book, Friedman disputes Keynes' idea that aggregate spending and income are directly linked (and therefore open to government influence). Rather, he writes, consumer spend independent of government policy, based on their expected long-term, or 'permanent' income. In all his writing, Friedman embraces a laissez-faire approach that celebrates individual freedom. He sees the ideal role for government as 'umpire', not 'parent" (NYPL Books of the Century 144).

      Stockholm: Svensk Filmindustri, 1957. Original Swedish illustrated poster for the 1957 film.

        L'exil et le royaume

      Gallimard, 1957. - Gallimard, Paris 1957, 12x19cm, broché sous chemise et étui. - Edizione originale della riduzione teatrale fondata da Albert Camus, una delle copie del servizio stampa. Precious autografo firmato da Albert Camus al suo caro amico Andre Belamich ... - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Dos insolé, papier jauni, notre exemplaire est présenté sous chemise en demi chagrin gris et étui, l'ensemble signé de Devauchelle. Précieux envoi autographe signé d'Albert Camus : "A André Belamich, son vieil ami..." Belamich rencontre Camus en 1932 sur les bancs du cours de philosophie de Jean Grenier au lycée Bugeaud d'Alger, la fameuse « Khâgne africaine ». Après avoir participé ensemble à l'aventure du Parti Communiste Algérien, Camus et Belamich forment avec d'autres penseurs et artistes ce  que l'on nomme aujourd'hui "l'Ecole d'Alger" réunissant autour de l'éditeur et libraire Edmond Charlot une génération d'esprits progressistes dont Claude de Fréminville, Max-Pol Fouchet, René-Jean Clot, emmanuel Roblès et Gabriel Audisio. Après plusieurs traductions pour Charlot de Jane Austin et David Lawrence, Belamich devient surtout, à l'initiative et avec le soutien de Camus, le principal traducteur de Garcia Lorca et l'instigateur de sa diffusion en France. L'indéfectible amitié qui l'unit à Camus jusqu'à sa mort - il est à ses côtés lors de la remise de son Prix Nobel - font de lui un des principaux témoins de la vie de l'écrivain comme l'attestent ses contributions aux biographies de Herbert R. Lottman et de Olivier Todd. Emouvant et précieux envoi à cet ami des premières heures algériennes qui ont construit l'humanisme de Camus et auxquelles il consacra son dernier roman inachevé : « Le premier homme ».

        Il Dottor Zivago. Romanzo

      Feltrinelli, 1957. In 8, cm 13,5 x 20,5, pp. 712. Cartonatura editoriale con sovraccoperta con lievi segni d'uso ai margini superiore e inferiore. Edizione originale nella primissima tiratura del 15 novembre 1957. Cinque giorni dopo il 20 novembre, vedra' la luce la seconda edizione. Ben nota e' la vicenda editoriale dei questo romanzo. L'opposizione alla pubblicazione delle autorita' sovietiche, e la richiesta di restituzione del manoscritto, giunse all'editore Feltrinelli alla fine dell'estate del 1957, quando la lavorazione del libro era praticamente terminata. Accadde cosi' che l'edizione italiana dell'opera, nella traduzione di Pietro Zveteremich, diventera' la prima edizione mondiale di quest'opera capitale per la storia della letteratura russa ITA
