        Holograph Manuscript Translation of Roland Ville-Neuve's The Devil in Art

      Roosevelt, NJ. Shahn's "literal" translation is handwritten in ink on the recto of each leaf, with her notes and commentary on the text on each facing leaf verso. Her notes range from philosophical arguments with the author, to practical notes on translation of a particular phrase, to lengthy asides on artworks that might be used to illustrated a point in the text. Throughout, Shahn displays a tremendous range of knowledge and mastery, not just of art-historical subjects but of comparative religion, mythology, and aesthetic philosophies. The manuscript offers great insight to Shahn's own work as an artist, illustrator, and lecturer, and reveals her as a formidable intellect very much on a par with her late husband Ben Shahn. Undated (ca 1970s-80s?) holograph manuscript of 112 leaves, comprising a literal translation of Le Diable dans l'Art by Roland Villeneuve (published 1957). Contained in an unlined, cloth-bound sketchbook 18cm x 14.5cm. Moderate wear, including rubbing to covers and a split to binding near center of text block. Apparently incomplete, as the translation ends in mid-paragraph and Shahn has written "Next Book" at bottom of final page. There are a further 20 or so leaves at end of volume that have been used for random notes on subjects tangentially related to the translation.

        On the Road

      NY: Viking, 1957. Octavo. (iv) 310pp. First edition. Author's second book, which stands quite firmly as the quintessential work of beat literature. The subject of Kerouac's rhapsodic novel is well-known, as are the stories surrounding its composition, and the mixed bag of critical response to its publication. What is less often cited is Kerouac's intended audience, which Ann Charters reveals in her bibliography: in a later interview, he admits that the book was written for his second wife "to tell her what I'd been through. It's directed toward a woman ... it's sexy because it's addressed to a woman." Fine and bright in black cloth stamped in white, and with unrestored dust wrapper which shows a few tiny nicks and a couple of small closed tears at extremities.

        A Book of Battles.

      New York 6x9 Press 1957 - Oblong octavo. 12 ff., frenchfold. One of an unspecified, but undoubtedly small edition. Illustrated with nine hand-colored linocuts by Chwast. With an Introduction by Dachine Rainer, the anarchist writer whose novella, A Room at the Inn would be published the following year. An early work by Chwast, an AIGA Medal recipient and major influence on modern graphic design and typography. In this work, Chwast illustrates nine battles -- from Marathon in 490 B.C. to Ypres in the first World War -- accompanied by quotations, the effect of which, as Rainer notes in her introduction, is "to give rise to a number of provocative speculations on the desirability of an enduring 'Cease Fire!'" Bound in cloth backed decorated paper boards with a printed title label on upper cover. Slightest edgewear, else fine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Atlas Shrugged

      New York: Random House, 1957. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author, "For Deems Taylor- with profound admiration- Ayn Rand 6/18/58." The recipient, Deems Taylor was an American composer and music critic and a close personal friend of Ayn Rand. The author Nat Benchley, referred to him as "the dean of American music." He was also a friend of the Algonquin Round Table, a group of writers, actors and critics that met almost daily from at Manhattan's Algonquin Hotel. Other friendships included composers George Gershwin and Jerome Kern and F. Scott Fitzgerald . Some rubbing to the bottom cloth, an excellent copy in a near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. An exceptional association copy. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The theme of Atlas Shrugged, as Rand described it, is "the role of man's mind in existence". The book explores a number of philosophical themes that Rand would subsequently develop into the philosophy of Objectivism. By 1984 more than five million copies of Atlas Shrugged had been sold, and in a 1991 Library of Congress survey Americans named it second only to the Bible as the book that had most influenced their lives.

        Atlas Shrugged

      Random House, New York 1957 - 1st edition/1st printing, Random House, 1957. Stated First Printing with all the correct points met for book and dustjacket. A lovely copy of this bulky book and fragile dustjacket. The Near Fine+ book (really close to Fine) is clean, straight and tightly bound with no soiling and no previous owner marks or names, the binding gilt on the front panel and spine is bright, unscratched and unfaded, binding edges and corners are unworn, and the dark green upper page edges are unfaded and rich in color. The only faults I can see is the usual tiny bit of faint smuding to the extreme outer corners of the bottom page edges from the weight of the book causing them to touch shelving at some point in its life, and an extremely tiny (less than sharpened pencil point sized) ink mark also on the lower page edges. The Near Fine+ price intact dustjacket has the correct '10/57' on the bottom of the front flap, the publisher's name/address on the bottom of the back flap, and the striking colors and design of this famous Salter-designed dustjacket are bright and unfaded. There has been a very small amount of extremely well done professional paper conservationist work that's hard to even see in little areas of the edges near the spine folds and a couple of the flap fold ends, there's just a touch of surface rubbing to the back panel, a mere hint of edge wear to a small portion of the lower back panel edge, and a couple of tiny very slightly toned spots in the white area of the back panel. Beautiful book and dustjacket that presents very near perfectly. This one needs no content synopsis - the author's opus, probably the all-time best selling fiction book with, it seems, never-ending relevance for good or bad as to what's happening in our world over half a century after the book was published.; 8-11/16" x 6"; 1168 pages LOC: 5710033 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Forbidden Planet

      Printed by Lichtert, Brussells. [1957], 1957. An original Belgian mid-size / window card style poster for the 1957 cult sci-fi film 'Planete Interdite' from MGM Studios, starring Walter Pidgeon, Ann Francis and lesli Nielsen. Folded (almost always issued folded), condition A. 14x 22 inches approx, now with loose-backed board stiffener. Scarce poster for a truly cult 50's science fiction film, and arguably the greatest sci-fi flick of the decade. The image of Robby carrying a woman is iconic and was adapted for posters around the world. Note on Format; Belgian posters come in three primary sizes, with the 14x22 being the mid-size style. Similar to a US window card, but printed on thinner paper (and therefore fragile). A popular format with collectors.

        On the Road

      New York: The Viking Press New York: The Viking Press, 1957 First edition, first printing. Publisher's cloth, black dust jacket. A very good copy, with light wear to the spine ends and the front board, minor rubbing to the edges and corners, a light crease to the spine, otherwise a very clean and fresh copy; in a first issue unclipped dust jacket, with light wear to the hinges, minor chipping to the extremities, slight scuffing to rear panel, and very light rubbing to the front panel. Overall, an attractive copy without significant wear, which is most endemic to this title. On the Road is Kerouac's second novel and certainly his most renowned. Before its release in 1957, sections of On the Road were published as articles in a variety of literary magazines and were received well by audiences, prompting the publishers to describe the first complete edition as "a publishing event of no small interest." Today, On the Road is best known as the novel that made Jack Kerouac famous and it remains popular with younger generations. In this work, Kerouac describes his years traveling the United States and Mexico with his friend Neal Cassady in their youthful search for adventure, excitement, and knowledge of self in stream-of-consciousness prose that is as captivating as the story itself. Kerouac wrote the bulk of this novel in three weeks on a singular 120-foot-long scroll and spent years editing and revising it before its publication in 1957.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

        Certain Poems that Trace the Record of a Journey Twenty Years Ago from Vienna to Greece and Back through Albania

      Privately Printed (1957). 31pp. 4to - Privately Printed (1957). 31pp. 4to. A collection of the eccentric peripatetic poet's work written in the 1930s, printed here under one of his various pseudonyms. In addition to seventeen poems included, he also includes a rambling exegesis on the period in which the trip was taken and the background for some of the poems, which also includes a photograph taken in the 1940s. James is perhaps best known for his patronage of many artists, including Dali, Magritte, Tchelitchew and many others and his eccentric retreat Las Pozas in northern Mexico (his home when this collection was privately published). Very good in mauve wrappers, small chips at edges and light wear to covers. The book is warmly inscribed in the year of publication to Miranda Speranza Masocco Levy, the doyenne of Albuquerque opera. Quite rare. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
