        Meine Augen sind müde. Plakatmanifest und Ausstellungskatalog 'Malereien von Hundertwasser' 17. Okt. - 24. Nov. 1957.

      Wien, Galerie St. Stephan. 1957 - 31,5 x 89 cm. 1 Bogen, beidseitig bedruckt (Offset), gefaltet. Das ungewöhnliche Format enthält seine Texte 'Ich esse nicht gern Kirschen', 'Ich bin schon ganz vertrottelt', ein Verzeichnis der Leihgeber (Max Lersch, Walter Eckert, Lara Vinci) und die Liste der zuletzt entstandenen Bilder. Otto Mauer, der Leiter der Galerie, distanzierte sich von Passagen im Text Hundertwassers, einer frühen Erscheinung seiner Architekturphantasien (Besser ist es, die Leute abzuknallen oder im Mutterleib umzubringen), die ein Jahr später in seinem Verschimmelungsmanifest zusammengefasst wurden. Die Galerie, 1923 von Otto Kallir als 'Neue Galerie' gegründet, hatte Mauer seit 1954, als er Domprediger von St. Stephan wurde, mit Kirchenhilfe von Kallir gemietet und 1963 in 'nächt' St. Stephan umbenennen müssen (Kallir nannte seine New Yorker Neugründung St. Etienne). Diese dritte Ausstellung Hundertwassers in Wien, seine erste außerhalb des Art Clubs, geht einher mit seinem internationalen Durchbruch dem Kauf seines Hauses in der Normandie und der Segeltour mit Hans Neuffer von Skandinavien nach England. Optisch und inhaltlich bedeutendes Dokument der 50er Jahre in Wien. - Gutes Exemplar, gefaltet, minimale Öffnung in einer Bugfalte. [Attributes: First Edition]

Originally published in New York, in 1955, as A Good Man is Hard to Find. O'Connor's "position with regard to race relations is a difficult and contentious one. Stories like 'The Artificial Nigger' and 'Everything that Rises Must Converge', which deal explicitly with race, can seem to moralize against racism while themselves rehearsing racist portrayals of African-Americans. But as Alice Walker has observed, O'Connor's general tendency in her stories is to refuse attempts at rendering African-Americans at all: 'she leaves them free, in the reader's imagination, to inhabit another landscape, another life, than the one she creates for them. This is a kind of grace many writers do not have'." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.

        Espaces - 13 Dessins, Lavis, Aquarelles.

      Au Vent d'Arles, Paris. 1957 - First edition. Elephant folio. Préface par André Verdet. One of 300 numbered copies. 13 high quality lithographic plates, printed by Daniel Jacomet "sur papier à la cuve du Moulin Richard de Bas spécialement filigrané pour cette édition". The preface is printed is on three folded sheets of handmade paper. This and the plates are loosely preserved in a cloth and burlap folder the cover of which is a silkscreen which Braque especially made for this edition. Presentation copy inscribed to the Spanish fashion designer Cristóbal Balenciaga, firstly by the author of the Preface: "Pour Monsieur Balenciaga en homage - A Verdet - 57" and beneath this by the artist himself: "Pour Balenciaga - G Braque - 1957". Very cleverly Braque incorporates an artist's palette into the initial "G" of his name. Balenciaga opened his first boutique in San Sebastián in Spain, in 1918, and then opened branches in Madrid and Barcelona. After the Spanish Civil War forced him to close his shops he opened his couture house in Paris, in 1937, where he remained in business until 1968. Cecil Beaton dubbed him "fashion's Picasso" and it was on Balenciaga's advice that the other great designer of the period, Hubert de Givenchy, produced a series of embroidered coats in honour of Braque and Joan Miró who were among the influences on Balenciaga's own designs. The plates and accompanying Preface are in fine state, on a very good indeed folder with cloth ties, which is a bit grubby at the edges but with the Braque silkscreen in very good state with only slight rubbing to the colours. The lettering of his name did not fully take to the material. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Diamond Smugglers.

      Jonathan Cape, London 1957 - First edition, early printing of the thrilling true story behind one of the greatest spy operations in history. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Boldly signed by Ian Fleming on the front free endpaper. From the library of Stanley Meyer, with his bookplate. Meyer was a Hollywood producer, who met Fleming in 1956. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket design by Denis Piper. Introduction by John Blaze. Rare and desirable signed by Fleming and with noted provenance. In 1957, as the Cold War raged, Ian Fleming took a break from writing James Bond to craft a work of nonfiction every bit as tense as a Bond adventure. Aided by an ex-MI5 agent and International Diamond Security Organization operative going by the alias "John Blaize," Fleming chronicled the IDSO's infiltration of the "million-carat network"--the world's most notorious diamond smuggling ring. Every year, a shadowy band of racketeers pirated a fortune in diamonds out of Africa, and the majority of the stolen gems wound up in the hands of Communist nations. In response, the IDSO commissioned a private army, led by legendary British spymaster Sir Percy Sillitoe, to penetrate and topple the ring. And when the operation was complete, the Sunday Times gave the story to Fleming, who had impressed Sillitoe with his 1956 Bond adventure Diamonds Are Forever.

        William Blake's Illustrations to the Bible

      (France): Trianon Press, 1957. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Blake, William. No. 219 of 506, Atlas Folio - over 23" to 25" tall, 82 p. In his "Life of William Blake" (1863) Alexander Gilchrist warned his readers that Blake "neither wrote nor drew for the many, hardly for work'y-day men at all, rather for children and angels; himself 'a divine child,' whose playthings were sun, moon, and stars, the heavens and the earth" (N. B. info from The Poetry Foundation). William Blake (1757 - 1827) is arguably the most original and highly-regarded English author - unusual in that he excelled both as an author and an artist. Although thought mad by his contemporaries, he was held in high regard for his expressiveness and for the synthesis of philosophical and mystical senses within his work. Blake's work has been spectacularly reproduced by Arnold Fawkus and his Trianon Press, which has an undeniable claim to being the finest press of its kind in the last century and has long been known for their unrivaled artworks in fine colour printing. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in half black leather, marbled boards with vellum tips, gilt lettering on spine, there are 208 entries in this list of all the tempera and water-colour paintings Blake is known to have made of illustrations of the Bible, all the paintings presently locatable are reproduced in small dimensions, with a few full-page and in full colour; frontispiece was printed in lithography by Mourlot, Paris, and Plate I in collotype and stencil by Jacomet, Paris, Plates II to VII were printed in colour collotype by Emery Walker Ltd., London, the monochrome collotype pages were printed in Paris on Arches pure rag paper by Trianon Press and Hourdebaigt; the collotype layouts were prepared by PeterBusche, the text pages were set by hand in 18 point Centaur and Colchester. Binding by the Wigmore Bindery, and Mansell Ltd. London; this book was designed by Arnold Fawkus, and produced and published for the William Blake Trust by the Trianon Press; pagination: half-title (i), colophon (ii), blank (iii), frontispiece (iv), title page (v), copyright (vi), preliminary pages (vii - viii), introduction (ix - x), catalogue xi - (xiii), blank (xiv), illustrations (1) - 53, colour plates (54 - 68); 22.25" tall, limited edition no 219 of 506 copies.
