Lowman, Printer at the Pass 99n: "This book was originally planned as a 250-300 page private edition to be published on the occasion of the ranch centennial in 1953, but it grew steadily for the next four years.... The project grew from a modest private edition to a two-volume, 838-page trade book. The physical dimensions of the books itself, the 16-point Centaur type of the text, the ample page margins, and the expansive chapter head designs all suggest the vastness of the ranch. Typesetting was inspected page by page to insure that bad spacing and bad breaks were avoided. An original color technique was developed for color separation in the four, five, and seven-color illustrations....

It is bound in heavy crush linen resembling the King Ranch saddle blanket with the running 'W' brand"; Printing Arts in Texas, p. 54: "Tom Lea's history of the King Ranch is one of the most important books ever to emerge from a Texas background. Its typographical achievement is equally distinguished." Reese, Six Score 69: "Perhaps the most exhaustive ranch history ever written, and a tremendous account of the cattle industry of south Texas." In 1885 Henrietta King inherited the debt-ridden ranch 500,000-acre ranch from her visionary but impractical husband. She ran the ranch until her death in 1925, developing important and early scientific techniques for beef production. The Santa Gertrudis breed, for which the King Ranch is now renowned, started under her direction. At her death, the ranch had grown to well over a million acres and she had cleared all debts, leaving an estate of over $5 million

Reese Six-score 69. & ¶ The sought-after Saddle Blanket Edition (never intended for sale, but only as presentation copies) of Tom Lea's voluminous account of the most famous of Texas ranches. Jenkins notes that this is the "best account," while William Reese calls it "perhaps the most exhaustive ranch history ever written." Frank Goodwyn adds that "in addition to being an encyclopedic compendium of information on the ranch, the book is also a work of art." The King Ranch, located in south Texas between Corpus Christi and Brownsville, is one of the largest ranches in the world. (The world's largest is the 6,000,000-acre Anna Creek station in Australia, and the largest contiguous U.S. ranch is the Waggoner Ranch near Vernon, Texas.) The King Ranch comprises 825,000 acres and was founded in 1853 by Captain Richard King and Gideon K. Lewis. It comprises portions of six Texas counties, in four largely discontinuous sections called divisions. (Only the first two divisions border each other, and that border is relatively short.) The ranch was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition.

        The 8 million dollar girl Marlowe is going to be married to" - Superb original picture postcard written and sent by Chandler from Palms Springs to his publisher Hamish Hamilton in London

      Palm Springs: No Publisher 1957 - Superb original picture postcard written and sent by Chandler from Palms Springs to his publisher Hamish Hamilton in London. Postmarked Palm Springs: 24th December 1957. A "Giant Post Card" with "Greetings from Palm Springs" printed on the front over a picture of Palm Springs Plaza sent by Chandler to his publisher in London. In fine condition apart from some slight creasing and two punch holes, only affecting the letters "ut" in "but" and the first "l" in "alcoholic" in the second last line. This gem is as good as it gets: Address ("Hamish Hamilton, Esq., / 90(50?) Great Russell St., / London, W.C. 1, / England.") and text written entirely in Chandler's hand. The text reads as follows: "Dear Jamie: Here are so few of these oversized nonsenses that I may have sent you this one before. But don't kick me, I'm old and weak. Thanks for letter which I shall answer very soon. Went to a party last night at a home which is the ideal setting for the 8 million dollar girl Marlowe is going to be married to in my next after the one I am finishing up. They'll have a hell of a time squabbling. The party was elaborate but the same old thing. Elaborate catering and decorations, but the same loud empty alcoholic voices. Love to all. Ray." Note that "Jamie" is how friends called Hamish (Hamilton). At the time and as mentioned in the text, Chandler was putting the finishing touches on his novel Playback, which ends with Linda Loring ("the 8 million dollar girl" of The Long Good-Bye fame) calling Marlowe and asking him to marry her. This is the first time Chandler mentions marriage and the setting for the beginning of his last novel The Poodle Springs Story. This is the only time we have ever seen Marlowe's name in Chandler's handwriting. Also, we know of no other text of this length and content entirely in Chandler's hand.

      O. O. u. D., [Januar 1957].. 1 S. Gr.-4to.. "Ich kann mich noch jeder Theatervorstellung meines Lebens erinnern, während auch den besten Filmen etwas Zweidimensionales anhaftet, das sie im Gedächtnis verblassen macht wie alte Daguerrotype. Liegt das daran, daß wir nicht mitgespielt haben, wie das Publikum im Theater es doch irgendwie tut? Ist es der leichtverderbliche Konservencharakter des Films, der die Erinnerung an ihn so schnell zerfallen läßt? Oft bin ich, das weiß ich, im Kino erschüttert oder amüsiert gewesen, doch erinnern kann ich mich nur noch an die Schauspieler, nicht an ihre Szenen, weil jene wiederkehrten, diese aber nicht [...]". - Etwas angestaubt und mit kleinen Randläsuren sowie redaktionellen Anstreichungen in blauem Farbstift.

        Arbres et Voiles

      Paris, au vent d'Arles, 1957.. Paris, au vent d'Arles, 1957., 1957. En feuilles sous chemise toilée écrue, illustrée, à rabats.. 45/31 cm, 6 ff.n.c., 11 pl., 2 ff.n.c., 10 pl.. Un des 40 ex. sur vélin d'Arches comprenant une eau-forte originale en couleurs signée, 10 planches ( 7 en couleurs, 3 en noir), et une suite des planches en noir. Préface d'André Verdet. La gravure originale a été réalisée par Robert Dutrou sur les presses à bras de l'atelier Crommelynck. La couverture, de toile écrue, est illustrée d'un dessin en couleurs crée spécialement par l'Artiste pour cette édition. Le présent ouvrage alterne les arbres du midi chers à Pignon et les voiles, les titres sont les suivants : Le vieil arbre - Ostende - Paysage jaune - La Minque. Ostende - Les collines de Vallauris - Le cheval blanc - Le renflouement - L'olivier du père Brun - Automne à Bandol - La jetée de Sanary. Édouard Pignon naît à Bully-les-Mines en 1905, dans le Pas de Calais. Il s’installe à Paris en 1926. Sa rencontre avec Picasso en 1936 est décisive pour sa peinture qu’il conçoit comme une « quête de la réalité ». Il se consacre exclusivement à la peinture dès 1938. Il fait désormais partie de la « Jeune peinture Française ». Un séjour à Collioure en 1945 est à l’origine de la série des catalanes, il nouera là une profonde amitié avec le peintre Willy Mucha. Dans ses recherches il privilégie désormais le mouvement. Il travaille en 1952 chez Picasso à Vallauris et développe d’autres séries, comme les oliviers, puis les battages et pousseurs de blé après de longs séjours en Italie. Le mouvement incessant de la vie il le traque ensuite vers 1962 dans les séries dramatiques des batailles et des seigneurs de la guerre. Il travaille aussi pour le théâtre, pour Vilar et le TNP. Sa rétrospective au Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris en 1966 se termine sur la nouvelle série des plongeurs qu’il a réalisée à Sanary. Pignon nous fait percevoir la puissance de la vie. Il poursuivra sans cesse ces recherches et si les séries des Nus, des Bleus de la mer et des Dames du soleil semblent apaisées, rien n’est immobile, il traque alors l’exaltation du mouvement au repos. Ouvrage en très bel état.
