This copy has a chemise and slipcase of grey half shagreen by Devauchelle.Handsome autograph inscription from Albert Camus to his friend André Belamich: "A André Belamich, son vieil ami..."Belamich rencontre Camus en 1932 sur les bancs du cours de philosophie de Jean Grenier au lycée Bugeaud d'Alger, la fameuse « Khâgne africaine ». Après avoir participé ensemble à l'aventure du Parti Communiste Algérien, Camus et Belamich forment avec d'autres penseurs et artistes ce  que l'on nomme aujourd'hui "l'Ecole d'Alger" réunissant autour de l'éditeur et libraire Edmond Charlot une génération d'esprits progressistes dont Claude de Fréminville, Max-Pol Fouchet, René-Jean Clot, emmanuel Roblès et Gabriel Audisio.Après plusieurs traductions pour Charlot de Jane Austin et David Lawrence, Belamich devient surtout, à l'initiative et avec le soutien de Camus, le principal traducteur de Garcia Lorca et l'instigateur de sa diffusion en France.L'indéfectible amitié qui l'unit à Camus jusqu'à sa mort - il est à ses côtés lors de la remise de son Prix Nobel - font de lui un des principaux témoins de la vie de l'écrivain comme l'attestent ses contributions aux biographies de Herbert R.

        Some Came Running

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1957. xii+1266 pages. Thick octavo (8 1/2" x 5 3/4") bound in half red cloth with black lettering to spine and cover. Inscribed to Davis Grubb. First edition. James Jones's second published novel, Some Came Running (1957), had its roots in the abandoned first effort. In contrast to Eternity, it was savaged by the critics. They were especially harsh with the frequently misspelled words and punctuation errors; they didn't recognize that such elements were a conscious style choice by Jones to evoke the provinciality of the novel's characters and setting. Jones apparently played around with this style in several short stories written at about the same time as Some Came Running (later collected in The Ice-Cream Headache and Other Stories), only to abandon it altogether by the time he finished The Thin Red Line in 1962, in favor of the blunt but more grammatically sound style most associated with Jones today. Some Came Running was immediately adapted as film starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine, which was critically acclaimed and nominated for several Oscars. Davis Grubb (July 23, 1919 - July 24, 1980) was an American novelist and short story writer. Born in Moundsville, West Virginia, Grubb wanted to combine his creative skills as a painter with writing and as such attended the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. However, his color blindness was a handicap he could not overcome and he gave up on painting to dedicate himself to writing fiction. He did, however, make a number of drawings and sketches during the course of his career, some of which were incorporated into his writings. In 1940, Grubb moved to New York City where he worked at NBC radio as a writer while using his free time to write short stories. In the mid 1940s he was successful in selling several short stories to major magazines and in the early 1950s he started writing a full length novel. Influenced by accounts of economic hardship by depression-era Americans that his mother had seen first hand as a social worker, Grubb produced a dark tale that mixed the plight of poor children and adults with that of the evil inflicted by others. The Night of the Hunter became an instant bestseller and was voted a finalist for the 1955 National Book Award. That same year, the book was made into a motion picture that is now regarded as a classic. Deemed "culturally significant" by the Library of Congress, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. Grubb went on to write a further nine novels and several collections of short stories. His 1969 novel Fools' Parade would also be made into a motion picture starring James Stewart. Some of Grubb's short stories were adapted for television by Alfred Hitchcock and by Rod Serling for his Night Gallery series. Grubb died in New York City in 1980. His novel Ancient Lights was published posthumously in 1982, and St. Martins Press published 18 of his short stories in a book collection titled You Never Believe Me and Other Stories.Condition:Inscribed by Jones on half title. Touch of rubbing to spine ends. Jacket spine ends lightly chipped with some rubbed, some light wear to edges with some small closed tears, price clipped else a near fine copy in like jacket.

Fine- Durrell's magnum opus, chronicling the lives of British expatriates in Egyptbetween the two world wars. "The Alexandria Quartet is one of those works that seem to draw upon and sum up a multitude of works and writers and bodies of knowledge that have come before. Sources specific to Egypt include Constantine Cavafy's poetry and E. M. Forster's Alexandria: A History and a Guide. Other sources range from The Arabian Nights to accounts of the life of occult philosopher Paracelsus, from the obsessive erotic catalogues of the Marquis de Sade (who wrote his own Justine and who provides three of the volumes with epigraphs) to the thrillers of John Buchan. Freud is here (providing a psychological framework and yet another epigraph), as well as his student Georg Groddeck. Durrell also utilizes Einstein's theory of relativity, recounting the same events from multiple viewpoints within the first three volumes, then advancing the characters and situations through the fourth dimension, time, in the fourth and final volume. . . . Whatever the merits of the works his contemporaries were producing in the 1950s, most of those seemed cautious and provincial compared to Durrell's unabashedly romantic and experimental novels."

        CAT IN THE HAT

      SEUSS, DR.. SEUSS,DR. THE CAT IN THE HAT. NY: Random Hse. (1957). 8vo, flat paper over boards (not glazed paper), 61p., small old offset marks on endpapers and name erased from free endpaper else near fine in VG dust wrapper that has some fraying at spine ends. 1st edition of Seuss's first reader (correct binding paper) in dust wrapper with price. Illustrated in bright color throughout. The importance of this book cannot be overstated. In addition to becoming a household name, the Cat In The Hat is extremely important in the history of education and children's literature. At the same time that it was amusing, it was bringing the basic concepts of reading to tens of thousands of little children who were learning without being "taught". It was a marked departure from the boring Dick and Jane type reader. The challenge of writing an entire book using only 220 different words and making the book enjoyable was enormous. Teachers began to use this book in their classrooms and it was not long before the Cat In The Hat became an American icon. First editions of this title are extremely scarce.

        Talented Mr. Ripley, The

      First Impression London Cresset Press 1957 First UK Edition. 8vo; 266pp. Publisher's red cloth, the spine lettered in gilt (a bit dulled); in a pictorial dust jacket lettered in black and priced at 15/-. Offsetting to the end papers, spotting to the page edges and the first and final few leaves, otherwise a clean, Near Fine copy, in a Near Fine jacket with a lightly faded and toned spine (the head of which has very shallow chipping), and a soiled back panel; the front panel sharp and bright. This, Highsmith's third novel, introduces Tom Ripley, sexually ambiguous con artist featured in five of her novels, popularly known as the Ripliad, written between 1955 and 1991. After a television adaptation in 1956, the novel was filmed by René Clément with Alain Delon, praised by Highsmith as the ideal Ripley. Re-filmed in 1999, with Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law and Cate Blanchett. Yet another example of the value to be found in the graphically superior designs of most UK editions of American authors' works (our specialty). Near Fine According to Highsmith's talented biographer, Joan Schenkar, the 'Dark Lady of American Letters' has always taken as her subject, in all her writing, "the double, the Alter Ego, and its natural enabler: the alluring and dangerous act of self-transformation. She first proposed it in "Strangers on a Train" [her first masterpiece], turning Plato upside down to make it work: 'There's also a person exactly the opposite of you, like the unseen part of you, somewhere in the world, and he waits in ambush.' In The Talented Mr. Ripley [Highsmith's second, uncontested masterpiece], she gave it a triumphant shape?the shape of the American Dream?and a successful form in the character of Tom Ripley, a young grifter of indeterminate sexuality, who, like his creator, wants only 'the best' in life, slips in and out of different roles with ease, confuses love with murder, and gets away with everything."

        L'espèce humaine

      New edition, first for some parts, as corrected and reviewed, of which there were no large paper copies, one advance (service de presse) copy.Rare and handsome autograph inscription from Robert Antelme to Claude Gallimard.Spine and covers slightly and marginally sunned."There are no human beings, there is just humankind. It's because we are people just like them that the SS will be forever powerless before us."This fundamental work on the experience of the Nazi concentration camps was the third and last book published by the fleeting publishing house established by Marguerite Duras and Robert Antelme, her husband from 1940 to 1946.This first - unadvertised - appearance of the work sank without trace, selling barely a few copies. It was reissued the following year with a different cover by Robert Marin, but nonetheless suffered stiff competition from a number of other works on the subject that appeared immediately after the war. Nevertheless, as F. Lebelley notes, "at a time when there were many such accounts around, the power of this book - possessed of a singular sobriety - hit you with the force of a seminal text." The book is the work of an author who, according to Duras, "dove right into literature. This was Antelme's only book. Despite the praise and the prizes, L'Espèce humaine will remain the only work he'll ever write" (in: Duras, ou le poids d'une plume). The work was re-published, thanks to Albert Camus' efforts, ten years later (in 1957) by Gallimard and enjoyed a much wider circulation. Since then, the book has entered the history of literature as one of the most important works dealing with the painful necessity of thinking about the concentration camps and the human condition. It was thanks to this book that writers such as Antelme's friend Jorge Semprun could begin a new approach to the impossible task of writing about the camps. From 1947 onwards, Antelme noted in his foreword to the book: "we only just came back, bringing with us our memories, our experience still so fresh, and were filled with a frenetic desire to tell it as it was. But, from the very beginning, it seemed to us impossible to bridge the gap we faced between the words we had and this experience...How to keep ourselves from trying to explain how we'd found ourselves there? We were there still; and yet it proved impossible. Hardly had we begun our account, we found ourselves suffocating. What we had to say started to seem unimaginable then, even to ourselves."Peu après cette réédition chez Gallimard, ce témoignage reçu son plus bel hommage sous la plume de Maurice Blanchot :« Quand l'homme en est réduit à l'extrême dénuement du besoin, quand il devient "celui qui mange des épluchures", l'on s'aperçoit qu'il est réduit à lui-même, et l'homme se découvre comme celui qui n'a besoin de rien d'autre que le besoin pour, niant ce qui le nie, maintenir le rapport humain dans sa primauté. Il faut ajouter que le besoin alors change, qu'il se radicalise au sens propre, qu'il n'est plus qu'un besoin aride, sans jouissance, sans contenu, qu'il est rapport nu à la vie nue et que le pain que l'on mange répond immédiatement à l'exigence du besoin, de même que le besoin est immédiatement le besoin de vivre. » (Maurice Blanchot, L'indestructible, in La Nrf n°112, 1962 repris dans L'Entretien infini)Les envois de Antelme sont d'une insigne rareté, à fortiori à son éditeur qui, après 10 ans d'oubli, permettra la consécration de cet ouvrage fondamental.

The first three volumes of the work are by necessity bulky and out sized to accommodate the many maps contained with their covers. These beautifully printed books present a truly graphic picture of the exploration and peopling of the vast unknown land west of the Mississippi. The author does not merely present a catalog of significant maps of each era but tells the exciting story of many facets of history that resulted in their making-of the hard journeys, the hazardous exploits, the motivation, the mysticism, the misunderstandings and the strange blend of fact, imagination, false geographic concept and political necessity which were consummated in the engraver's work. These volumes will provide exciting text for the casual reader and have become eminent source book for the student and scholar.Condition:A near fine set.

        Across the Bridge. Collection of 47 stills from the 1957 British film noir.

      Collection of 47 vintage black-and-white single weight reference photographs (4 images duplicated) from the UK release of the 1957 British film noir, most with mimeograph description leaves and studio stamps on the verso. Accompanying the set is a 2-page press release (1 leaf ditto-style mimeograph, the other a carbon). Included are 32 photos sized 8 x 10 inches, 8 photos sized 7.5 x 9.5 inches, 3 photos sized 8.5 x 7.5 inches, 1 photo sized 8.75 x 7.25 inches, one photo sized 9 x 7.5 inches, and one photo sized 9.25 x 7.25 inches. 11 of the photographs have a rubber stamp at the verso reading "Copyright Pictorial Press"; 10 have a blue "Pictorial Press" stamp along with a ditto-style mimeograph description on a leaf affixed to the verso; 2 have the blue stamp, the mimeo description leaf, plus a new yellow "Pictorial Press" sticker; 2 have the blue stamp, the mimeo description leaf, plus a second "Atlantic Press" rubber stamp; finally, 22 2 have the blue stamp, the mimeo description leaf, and a second red stamp reading "Copyright pour la suisse par Len Sirman." An excellent set of reference stills for this low budget British noir, a film that brought Rod Steiger across the ocean in order to put his formidable character acting skills into what became a critically praised film. Shot in Spain (but represented as Mexico), "Across the Bridge" expands on Graham Greene's short story, bringing more specifics to the author's intentionally empirical outline. Steiger plays a crooked businessman on the run who steals a man's passport in order to hide out in Mexico, only to discover that the passport belongs to a wanted political assassin.

      London; San Francisco; San Francisco: Macmillan; W.H. Freeman; W.H. Freeman, 1953; 1954; 1957. A fascinating collection of materials relating to the discovery of the structure of DNA, headed by the rare three-paper offprint which "records the discovery of the molecular structure of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), the main component of chromosomes and the material that transfers genetic characteristics in all life forms. Publication of this paper initiated the science of molecular biology. Forty years after Watson and Crick's discovery, so much of the basic understanding of medicine and disease has advanced to the molecular level that their paper may be considered the most significant single contribution to biology and medicine in the twentieth century" (One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine, p. 362). The double helix describing the molecular structure of DNA has not only reshaped biology, it has become a cultural icon, represented in sculpture, visual art, jewellery, and toys. In 1962, Watson, Crick, and Wilkins shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine "for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material." Provenance: Stephen Neidle, CRC Biomolecular Group, King's College, London. The offered materials include a typed letter signed from Wilkins to Neidle, dated 16 January 1985, inviting him to the meeting at King's on 14 February to commemorate Sir John Randall, who was head of the Biophysics Research Unit at King's which included Franklin and Wilkins (a typed programme of the meeting is also included). DNA was first isolated by the Swiss physician Friedrich Miescher in 1869, and over the succeeding years many researchers investigated its structure and function, with some arguing that it may be involved in genetic inheritance. By the early 1950s this had become one of the most important questions in biology. Linus Pauling, already famous for his work on the structure of proteins, began to work on the problem in November 1952. "New data that summer from Alexander Todd's laboratory had confirmed the linkage points between the sugars and phosphates in DNA; other work showed where they connected to the bases. Pauling was already convinced from his earlier work that the various-sized bases had to be on the outside of the molecule; the phosphates, on the inside. Now he knew that the molecule was probably helical. These were his starting points for a preliminary look at DNA. He still lacked critical data - he had no decent x-ray images, for instance, and no firm structural data on the precise sizes and bonding angles of the base-sugar-phosphate building blocks of DNA - but he went with what he had. It was a mistake. After a few pages of theorizing, using sketchy and sometimes incorrect data, Pauling became convinced - as Watson and Crick had been at first - that DNA was a three-stranded structure with the phosphates on the inside. Unfortunately, he had no Rosalind Franklin to set him right" (Linus Pauling and the Race for DNA, Maurice Wilkins of King's College London and his colleague Rosalind Franklin were both working on DNA, with Franklin producing X-ray diffraction images of its structure. Wilkins also introduced his friend Francis Crick to the subject, and Crick and his partner James Watson began their own investigation at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, focusing on building molecular models. After one failed attempt in which they postulated a triple-helix structure, they were banned by the Cavendish from spending any additional time on the subject. But a year later, after seeing new X-ray diffraction  images taken by Franklin (notably the famous 'Photo 51', which is reproduced in the third paper), they resumed their work and soon announced that not only had they discovered the double-helix structure of DNA, but even more importantly, that "the specific pairing we have postulated immediately suggests a possible copying mechanism for the genetic material." "Although recognized today as one of the seminal scientific papers of the twentieth century, Watson and Crick's original article in Nature was not frequently cited at first. Its true significance became apparent, and its circulation widened, only towards the end of the 1950s, when the structure of DNA they had proposed was shown to provide a mechanism for controlling protein synthesis, and when their conclusions were confirmed in the laboratory by Matthew Meselson, Arthur Kornberg, and others. "Crick himself immediately understood the significance of his and Watson's discovery. As Watson recalled, after their conceptual breakthrough on February 28, 1953, Crick declared to the assembled lunch patrons at The Eagle that they had "found the secret of life." Crick himself had no memory of such an announcement, but did recall telling his wife that evening "that we seemed to have made a big discovery." He revealed that "years later she told me that she hadn't believed a word of it." As he recounted her words, "You were always coming home and saying things like that, so naturally I thought nothing of it"" (Francis Crick Papers, National Library of Medicine, "When Watson and Crick's paper was submitted for publication in Nature, Sir Lawrence Bragg, the director of the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge, and Sir John Randall of King's College agreed that the paper should be published simultaneously with those of two other groups of researches who had also prepared important papers on DNA: Maurice Wilkins, A.R. Stokes, and H.R. Wilson, authors of "Molecular Structure of Deoxypentose Nucleic Acids," and Rosalind Franklin and Raymond Gosling, who submitted the paper "Molecular Configuration in Sodium Thymonucleate." The three papers were published in Nature under the general title "The Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids" (ibid.). Crick's Scientific American paper 'The Structure of the Hereditary Material' provides, according to the abstract, "An account of the investigations which have led to the formulation of an understandable structure for DNA. The chemical reactions of this material within the nucleus govern the process of reproduction." Crick followed this three years later with a second survey paper in Scientific American, 'Nucleic acids': "These polymers appear to carry the pattern of living matter from one generation to the next. Their basic chain consists of sugars joined by phosphates. Attached to the sugars, in turn, are bases." His account proved to be controversial. In a letter to Crick [dated 13 September 1957, Xerox copy included in this collection], Pauling points out that in his paper Crick postulates (and illustrates in diagram) that in the DNA structure the two nucleobases guanine and cytosine are joined by a double hydrogen bond, even though he [Pauling] and Corey had shown in their paper 'Specific hydrogen-bond formation between pyrimidines and purines in deoxyribonucleic acids' (Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics 65 (1956), 164-181) that there is in fact a triple bond: "From crystal structure data for purines and pyrimidines it is concluded that in Watson and Crick's structure for DNA cytosine and guanine should form three hydrogen bonds. This conclusion strengthens the arguments of Watson and Crick as to the role of complementariness of structure of two DNA polynucleotide chains in the duplication of the gene." In his reply [dated 24 September 1957, Xerox copy included in this collection], Crick admits his error and accepts Pauling and Corey's triple-bond result.

Künstler- Vita: Willi Ulfig (* 26. November 1910 in Breslau; † 5. Februar 1983 in Regensburg). Ulfigs Kunst wurde zu Lebzeiten eigentlich immer nur bildimmanent interpretiert.

Eine aus dem Expressionismus erwachsene, mit realistischen Tendenzen der Neuen Sachlichkeit in den 1920er Jahren verwobene, ganz eigenständige künstlerische Sprache konnte sich - kulturpolitisch bedingt - nach Kriegsende nur regional artikulieren, wird nun von der kunsthistorischen Wissenschaft als bedeutender Teil der deutschen Kunstgeschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts wiederentdeckt. (Siehe Wikipedia). Zustand: Ränder leicht bestoßen, sonst wohl gepflegt und tadellos erhalten. Versand D: 6,50 EUR 20.

Housed in a custom clamshell case. "It changed my life like it changed everyone else's," Bob Dylan said of "On The Road." Jack Kerouac's classic Roman A Clef, published in 1957, was the defining work of the beat generation. It follows the travels of Sal Paradise, a stand in for Kerouac himself, and is based on a series of journeys Kerouac took from 1947 to 1950. The work was typed up on a continuous "scroll" of sheets that Kerouac had taped together.

        Disegni e dipinti di Bruno Caruso (1952-1955)

      Priulla G, 1957. 4to (cm. 34,5), 36 pp. con in nero e acolori n.t. e 18 tavv. a colori f.t. (anche a doppia pagina). Ritratti originali di Bruno Caruso (2) e Libero Bigiaretti (eseguiti da L. Civerchia). Cartonato editoriale fig. a colori (lievi tracce d’uso). Ottimo esemplare con dedica di Bruno Caruso sulla carta bianca iniziale. Il volume proviene dalla biblioteca del pittore romano Luigi Civerchia. I ritratti qui presenti mostrano l’idea di concepire il libro come un intelligente ed espressivo contenitore di memorie, le proprie innanzitutto, ma anche quelle dei diversi personaggi che egli ritrae, come intrecciandone i destini tra le pagine di uno stesso testo. Vale la pena notare che il nostro pittore ha scelto solo i libri come gallerie per i ritratti. Chi ha visitato qualche sua mostra, tra le tante tenutesi in Italia e all’estero, avrà infatti osservato che nei paesaggi o in altre composizioni le figure umane sono per lo più assenti, o comunque, hanno un ruolo del tutto secondario. E’ quindi una vera scoperta il Civerchia ritrattista, e lo è ancor più considerando la particolarità di esprimersi su di un mezzo singolare come sono le pagine di un libro. Luigi Civerchia è nato a Roma, nel popolare quartiere di Trastevere, nel 1928. Dopo una prima esperienza presso la bottega di uno scultore, continua il suo percorso nell’Atelier di Vittorio Grassi, momento fondante della sua formazione umana ed artistica. Si avvicina poi alla Scuola Romana seguendo con entusiasmo gli insegnamenti dei suoi Maestri ideali: Mafai, Pirandello e Quaglia.
