Fine- The quiet life of schoolmaster Bill Mor and his wife, Nan, is disturbed when a young woman, Rain Carter, arrives at the school to paint the headmaster's portrait. "Visual art was of great importance to Murdoch and is a dominant strand in the novels, as well as being an idiosyncratic element in her moral philosophy. (Murdoch sees the creation of, and attention to, good art as a moral issue.) She thought that she might have been an art historian or a painter had it not been for the war, and her novels frequently feature painters as major characters, as, for example, in The Sandcastle." (Literary Encyclopedia) Note: With few exceptions (always noted), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        Vada'sz Kaland (Hunting Adventure)

      (Hungary), 1957. Shadow theater toy, measuring 6 by 4 1/2 inches (150 x 110 mm). Color printed cardboard proscenium with transparent acetate screen behind which a long illustrated story strip is wound in either direction using metal cranks on either end, framed in a light wood that has been stained red. The lines in the acetate screen give the appearance of movement as the strip runs through. The story, in this case, is a cartoon of a hunting trip, and the main characters appear to be Mickey Mouse and Pluto. They are shown heading into the forest with a long gun, only to be pursued by a large bear. On either end, a little character is shown pulling a curtain, signalling the beginning and the end of the vignette. This theater was produced the year following the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, which saw the country attempt widespread reforms following the death of Stalin. These were violently suppressed, and Hungary remained a satellite state of the Soviet Union until 1989. The Soviet penchant for intellectual property piracy appears to have spread to its satellite states in this case, as it seems unlikely that Disney granted permission to use the likenesses of its most famous characters. An unusual survival, and, aside from a small split to one side and a minor abrasion on the rear panel, near fine and in good working condition.

        CURSE OF THE DEMON (1957)

      Columbia Pictures 1957 - Vintage original 41 x 27" (103 x 68 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Dana Andrews, Peggy Cummins, Niall MacGinnis, Maurice Denham, Athene Seyler, dir: Jacques Tourneur; Columbia. Dana Andrews plays a skeptical American psychologist who ventures to England to attend a symposium on paranormal psychology. Because he does not believe in the power of Julian Karswell, a devil cult leader, he attempts to expose her; when he is cursed by them, he must fight for his life. Shot on location in England, including at Stonehenge (present on this poster), the film delivered dark atmosphere -- the forte of filmmaker Jacques Tourneur. Poster is folded and unrestored. This poster was never used and except for minor shelf wear, a bit of soil to the pure white background and light crease to the top left corner, the condition is exceptional. ABOUT FINE
