        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.

        L’Homme qui Marche [Walking Man]

      Paris: Galerie Maeght, [1957]. Original lithograph on card, 69.8 x 49.5 cm, of Giacometti’s most celebrated image. The poster was also issued without the lettering, in a signed and numbered edition of 200 (the last copy traced at auction was in less than fine condition and fetched 3825€). Although the poster has been reprinted many times, this is from the original edition and printed directly from the stone; later photo-offset reproductions do not give Mourlot as the printer. Very faint marginal waterstaining to one corner, barely visible.

Calvino won numerous literary prizes, including, among them, the The Feltrinelli Prize (1972), the Riccione Prize (1947 - for "The Path to the Nest of Spiders", offered here), and the World Fantasy Award (1982 - for Lifetime Achievement) -- Calvino also received a distinction of France's Légion d'Honneur (1981).

        Little Richard, Original, Vintage, 1957, Boxing-Style Concert Poster

      1957. Little Richard Original Vintage 1957 Concert Poster, Thursday, August 8, [1957], Memorial Auditorium, Chattanooga [Tenn.], produced by Globe Posters of Baltimore with their imprint to the bottom margin. A striking, red and black boxing-style poster, 28.25" by 22", (71.8 cm. by 55.9 cm.), about near fine, on the original card stock, with a touch of soiling and age toning, short closed tears to margins and bottom left corner, with archival tape repair to verso. The poster is stored and will ship flat. The top billing for this all-star touring show belonged to Little Richard, who was riding high in 1957, with seven hit records on the charts, he had also starred in three movies, and in fact only Elvis Presley was enjoying similar success in these early days of rock ‘n’ roll. But this revue also included a formidable line- up of blues and r & b performers many of whom were influential rock ‘n’ roll pioneers. The great soul singer Bobby Bland was enjoying his first #1 hit, Farther Up The Road, in 1957, accompanied by his constant touring partner, Junior Parker, whose Mystery Train had been a hit for Sun Records and had been covered by Elvis in 1955 to even greater acclaim; while currently, Big Maybelle’s, Whole Lotta Shaking Goin’ On, which she first recorded in 1955, was a hit for Jerry Lee Lewis. The revue also included The Five Royales, featuring Lowman Pauling, whose combination of doo-wap, gospel and jump blues would be instrumental in shaping the 50’s soul sound; and the great bluesman Jimmy Reed, a pioneer of electric blues whose vocal style, and harmonica and guitar playing were major influences on several generations of rock musicians. A very scarce and historically significant early rock poster in collectible condition. J1760 . First Printing. About Near Fine.

        On the Road

      New York: The Viking Pres 1957 - First edition, first printing. A very good copy, with slight wear to the spine head and tail 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 slight wear to the hinges, minor chipping to the extremities, slight scuffing to rear panel, and very slight 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 the novel's 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 better known as the novel that made Jack Kerouac famous and remains popular with younger generations even today. In this work, Kerouac describes his years traveling the United States and Mexico with his friend Neal Cassidy in their youthful search for adventure, excitement, and knowledge of self in a stream of consciousness prose that is as exciting and captivating as the story itself. Interestingly, Kerouac wrote the bulk of this novel in three weeks on a singular 120 foot long scroll and spent years editing and revising before its publication in 1957.

        Meditations in an Emergency

      NY: Grove Press, (1957). First edition of O'Hara's second and, arguably, best-known book. One of 75 copies, signed by O'Hara. Presentation copy, inscribed by O'Hara on front endpaper to Morris Golde: "For Morris, from one islander to another." The reference is to Fire Island, where Golde had a summer beach house, and where O'Hara composed "For James Dean," after learning of Dean's death in 1955. In an ironic twist of fate, it was at this same location where, in 1966, O'Hara was struck by a dune buggy and killed. A fine copy in green cloth, the spine of which is far less toned than is usually encountered, housed in publisher's slipcase, which shows light wear and toning.

Mailing cases a little worn, cloth portfolios just a touch dusty and with very minor insect damage to the lining paper, the separate volumes in excellent state, a very good set indeed. First edition, limited to just 1500 sets. Publication was announced in Taiwan Today in August 1959; "Six folios of famous Chinese classical painting, printed by silk screen process on hand-made Japanese paper, have just been published by the Joint Board of Directors of the National Palace Museum and the National Central Museum of the Republic of China … the handsomely bound volumes contain the reproduction of paintings, many of them in exquisite colour, systematically selected from the old masters through a period of 1,100 years, beginning with Yen Li-pen (active 650 A.D.) down to Wang Yuan-ch'i (1642-1715 A.D.) The Joint Board was formed in 1949, when more than 3,800 crates of Chinese art treasures belonging to the National Palace Museum of Peiping and the National Central Museum of Nanking were moved to Taiwan with the government. The thousands of pieces in the collections were classified and catalogued, and properly stored in a warehouse adjoining a cave dug into the hill near Wu-feng, in central Taiwan. Since 1957, a display room was built with the assistance of the Asis Foundation, and the treasures were partly open to the public, the items on display being changed at regular intervals … However, the most significant achievement of the Joint Board so far is undoubtedly their successful completion of this publishing project, which may rank with the International Exhibition of Chinese Art held in London in 1935 as a major event in Chinese art history". An excellently preserved set of this superbly produced, uncommon, and highly desirable work.
