        Candy

      Paris: The Olympia Press, 1958. First Edition. Paperback. Near fine. 1st edition, 1st printing of 5,000 copies, most of them trashed by the Brigade Mondaine (French vice police). 1st state binding (1 volume, green wrappers, titled Candy, not Lollipop). There is no way to tell if this copy was the first one printed or the last, or if it was among the first copies bound, but it was among the last copies sold before Candy was reprinted, as it has the original price "Francs: 1200" overstamped in blue ink "New Price NF 15." Tiny rubs to the edges and corners, nearly fine, still fresh, and unabused, with no tears, soiling or repairs. Candy is an outrageous reminder that high heels were invented by a woman who had been licked on the navel. It took 6 years, and a fling in the courts, to clear the way for its publication in the U.S. because the fraction of fundamentalists that were reactionary, stood quite capable of mustering potent forces in their war on joy. No loss, it's just a book, and though such people can be harmless, they can also be scary, so here's why (in the wider world), they need to be tolerated, but they also need to be kept off balance. It's not that they want you to think as they do, it's that they want you to do as they think.

        The Collected Writings

      New Haven: [NY: The Thistle Press for] Holland Roberts Melson Jr, 1958. 8vo. 94, [1] pp. Original pictorial boards with a portrait of Lustig on the front cover by Maya Deren; original glassine. A fresh and bright copy, the corners and spine slightly bumped, front joint with a few small splits, glassine wth a few chips. SCARCE FIRST EDITION, one of 600 copies. Designed by Holland Roberts Melson, Jr., set in Monotype Walbaum, and printed on Mohawk Superfine Text by Clarke and Way at the Thistle Press. Binding by Russell-Rutter Company. Quite uncommon in the market. The text comprises twelve of Lustig's statements or essays on craft, including: "Designing, A Process of Teaching"; "Design Program for the University of Georgia"; "Graphic Design"; "Personal Notes on Design"; "Contemporary Book Design"; "The Architectural Review. A Lesson in Typographic Vigor"; "Formal Values in Trademark Design"; "What is a Designer?"; "Experimental Workshop in Graphic Design for Yale University"; "California Modern"; and "On Architecture." At end are a chronology on Lustig's life and career; a list of artcles about Lustig; and a list of articles written by him. This was the first and only collected edition of Lustig's writings, published by Elaine Lustig Cohen in memory of her husband who had taught at the School of Art and Architecture at Yale from 1951 to 1954. In his introduction, Philip Johnson notes Lustig's diverse talents, not only in typography and book design, but in architecture and public projects. "There was focused in his person a channeling from the great modern painting of Picasso, Matisse, and Mondrian. He focused their teachings into the creation of public symbols which make our surroundings. There is no one to take his place." "By the time he died at the age of forty in 1955, [Alvin Lustig] had already introduced principles of Modern art to graphic design that have had a long-term influence on contemporary practice. He was in the vanguard of a relatively small group who fervently, indeed religiously, believed in the curative power of good design when applied to all aspects of American life. He was a generalist, and yet in the specific media in which he excelled he established standards that are viable today. If one were to reconstruct, based on photographs, Lustig's 1949 exhibition at The Composing Room Gallery in New York, the exhibits on view and the installation would be remarkably fresh, particularly in terms of the current trends in art-based imagery" (Steven Heller).

        Woina i mir. Moscow, gos. muzykal'noe izd-vo, 1958.

      1958. Large 4to. 459, (1) pp. 289, (3) pp. 430, (2) pp. With a printed portrait frontispiece. Original cloth with giltstamped titles to cover and spine. [Includes:] Sergei Prokofiev, composer (1891-1953). Autograph musical quotation signed. No place, 1931. One bar from "The Love for Three Oranges" (op. 33). 130 x 90 mm. First edition of the score for "War and Peace" (op. 91; after Tolstoy's novel), published posthumously in 1000 copies. The present copy includes an additional autograph musical quotation by the composer. The libretto, also printed here, was written by Prokofiev himself with his second wife, Mira Mendelson. The opera, written in 1941 and extensively revised between 1946 and 1952, accompanied the composer throughout the last twelve years of his life: "The outbreak of the war gave impetus to a project Prokofiev had sketched out in spring 1941, for an opera based on 'War and Peace'. His initial plan for a small-scale, intimate opera which would highlight the personal dramas in the novel was expanded, by the war aspects in particular, and [...] in August 1941 he began the music [...] The following April, he finished 'War and Peace' [...] He sent the score of the opera to Moscow for approval, and in the meantime began its orchestration [which he completed] in March 1943 [...] Following the advice of the Committee on the Arts in Moscow, Prokofiev had drastically revised the opera in the process; the war scenes had been extended and the patriotic elements strengthened. It was no longer an intimate opera but an epic and heroic work. Prokofiev's incentive in revising the score was the promise of a production of the opera at the Bol'shoy at the end of 1943, for which Eisenstein was to design the sets [...] But, as had happened so often, the performance was first cancelled, then postponed indefinitely. Throughout the rest of his life Prokofiev continually made revisions and additions to 'War and Peace', including the composition of two new scenes, in a series of attempts to secure performances. It was only in 1957, however, after his death, that anything like a complete version of the opera was staged" (New Grove). When the Central Committee accused Prokofiev of "formalist perversions" in 1948, "War and Peace" was among the works to which the Communist Party took particular exception. - Corners insignificantly bumped, otherwise well-preserved. In Russian throughout, issued as part 6 of the works (Sobranie sochinenii), M. 26793a G., M. 26793b G., and M. 26793v G. OCLC 19801829. New Grove XV, 298. MGG X, 1649.

        Senator John Kennedy with his baby daughter Caroline

      Printed later by Clark. Gelatin silver gelatin print. 11 x 14 inches. Fine. Signed and inscribed by Edward Clark. Clark was one of the leading American magazine photographers of the twentieth century. In 1944 he joined Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstaedt, W. Eugene Smith, and Philippe Halsman at LIFE magazine. His photographs soon became among the most famous in America. In 1958 LIFE assigned Clark for a story on Senator Kennedy, considered a likely presidential candidate. When the photographer asked for a view of Kennedy with their four-month-old baby, his wife Jacqueline objected that they would awaken her. Kennedy invited Clark upstairs, with Jackie protesting, but this charming photograph was the result. Jackie requested 75 copies "of that marvelous picture" to give to family and friends. After Kennedy became president in 1961, the delightful photograph was displayed in the Oval Office.

        [Original Art]: Twenty-One Original Drawings for "The Instructor" magazine

      1958. Near Fine. Twenty-one original cartoons. Each is on artist board and measures 11" x 14". Condition is general near fine, a few are age-toned. All but one are finished cartoons; the other is a detailed sketch. Most of the drawings have a page from The Instructor magazine affixed to the verso, showing the published cartoon, with dates ranging from 1952-1958; a few do not, but it seems likely they were published there as well, with the exception of the single sketch. Each of the humorous cartoons feature grammar school children doing cute or silly things. For instance, one shows a mother registering her small child, who is wearing a baseball catcher's mask, in school, with the caption: "No, he doesn't play baseball, he bites." The Instructor was a long-running magazine aimed at primary school teachers, and the pages on the verso advertise schools, continuing education, and teacher's supplies. A small but charming collection of easy-going humor aimed at teachers dealing with the first wave of baby-boomers.
