        Marchand du Sel, ecrits de Marcel Duchamp.

      Paris: Le Terrain Vague, Collection "391, 1958. Affetctionately inscribed by Duchamp to Naum Gabo. First edition, one of 2000 copies on Alfa paper. Numerous illustrations throughout, celluloid illustration tipped onto front endpaper, 23 black and white plates and numerous illustrations in text. 8vo., original pictorial wrapper with an image of Duchamp on the cover, largely unopened.

Presentation copy inscribed by Duchamp on the half title to his great friend Naum Gabo and his wife "Cher Myriam, Cher Gabo, Ce ne sont pas mes memoires, affectueusement, Marcel". With the booklabel of Naum Gabo, the important Russian Constructivist sculptor and pioneer of kinetic art, as was Duchamp with his Bicycle Wheel. This compliled collection of notes and writings by Duchamp took its title from an aphorism by the French surrealist poet Desnos which used the fact that 'merchand du sel' (salt seller) sounds like Marcel Duchamp. A significant part is made up of his notes relating to his major work "The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors" as well as his judgements and criticisms of other artists which are fascinating.

        SOCIETE PARITYS Et Les TISSUS LEBOTYS. Collection Hiver 1958 - 59

      Societe Paritys / Lebotys, Paris 1958 - 80 pp. 12 color fashion drawings; ~590 pasted and tipped-in fabric samples 16-1/8" x 12-1/8" A mid-century salesman's sample catalogue from the winter collection of Parisian firm Société Paritys, a haberdashery and fabric supplier established in 1946 and still in operation today. The fabric samples have been supplied by Lebotys, a couture design firm in its own right, and highly regarded for the quality of its textiles. As we find record of Lebotys having issued catalogues of its own collections in both the 1930s and 1960s, we speculate that the two firms collaborated for a limited time, possibly due to continuing post-war shortages and the need to adapt to the rapidly changing clothing market of the 1950s.The late 1950s saw a revolution in French fashion ? and, by extension, Western fashion in general ? due in no small part to the influence of material factors underlying the purely aesthetic side of the industry: availability of fabric, continuing technological advances in synthetics, and the surging post-war economies of America and Europe. The reluctant expansion of haute couture into the ready-to-wear market during the latter half of the century, and the increasing reliance on synthetic fabrics to meet the demand, would ultimately spell a major shift in the industry, one that would impact fashion trends for decades to come. Some fashion houses, like Dior, whose ?New Look? revitalized fashion at the beginning of the decade, successfully managed to adapt by issuing couture ready-to-wear lines. Some, however, even long-established houses, survived the war only to be undone by the prosperity that followed.The collaboration here of Société Paritys and Lebotys, as well as the fabrics offered and styles displayed, leads us to infer that the two firms were likely targeting the growing ready-to-wear market. The fabrics include a variety of silks, cottons, wools, mohair, etc., as well as nylon, fibranne, rayon, Rhodia, tergal, crylor, lurex, viscose, imitation fur, and other ?Matieres Synthètiques,? often in blends, and advertising their washable and/or (anti)wrinkling qualities. The styles in the illustrations, still heavily influenced by the ?New Look,? emphasize wasp-waisted dresses, hourglass silhouettes, etc.No copies located on OCLC, nor the major French institutions (as searched on KVK). Light extremity wear to boards; bumping to upper corner of front board; short split to front and rear joints. Page block lightly foxed, foxing/spotting scattered throughout. Few white nylon fabric samples discolored by paste beneath. Fabric samples otherwise clean and bright, with only minor occasional creasing/fraying. Overall, VG. Post binder with 3 brass posts. Publisher's pictorial glazed boards, red cloth joints [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Affluent Society

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1958. First edition of the economist's landmark work. Octavo, original cloth with titles to the spine in silver. Boldly signed by John Kenneth Galbraith on the half title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. Laid in is article on Galbraith. John Kenneth Galbraith's breakthrough as a best-selling author came with "The Affluent Society" for which he was honored with the American Economic Association's prestigious presidency. The book also influenced both the Great Society program and the rise of the American "counterculture" in the 1960's. Listed on Modern Library's 100 great nonfiction books of the twentieth century. Galbraith's ideas often addressed the influence of the potential market power of large corporations (Dunn and Pressman, 2005). He believed that corporations could become price makers, rather than price takers, by weakening the accepted principle of consumer sovereignty (Galbraith, 1970). This, in turn, allowed corporations to efficiently increase the production of their goods.

        John Masefield Collection of ephemera (signed), books and photo, including signed carbon copy of "August 1914" poem

      1958 - John Masefield Collection of ephemera include;? Signed mimeo or carbon copy typescript (ND circa 1914 presumed] of Masefield's famous WWI historic and only war poem entitled"August, 1914". It was the first poem to see print after war was declared. It's a powerful, long and movingpoem that connects seamlessly between the beauty of life in the Berkshire landscape and the sadness and tragedy of life inthe trenches.The following is quoted from Wikisource John Masefield's Place In English Poetry;"One can think of no other poet since Chaucer so purely English in derivation and in spirit. His intense nationalism has no doubt contributed to the marking down of his talents in some critical quarters, for nationalism nowadays receives a cold scrutiny. Masefield's is of the kind that will not be stared down. Its basis is spiritual, in. . . the heartfelt things past-speaking dearTo unknown generations of dead men.Out of that nationalism of his came the noblest utterance in poetry that the War brought forth. If Masefield had written nothing else besides "August, 1914," his name would be remembered among the English poets. No blustering patriot, no facile glorifier of war, wrote those lines. If men died for love of England they also . . . died (uncouthly, most) in foreign landsFor some idea but dimly understoodOf an English city never built by handsWhich love of England prompted and made good.The mood in which Masefield watched the approach of war, as it is here recorded, is not the eager consecration to which young men like Rupert Brooke gave expression. Masefield's poem has lost nothing of its poignancy in the aftermath of disillusion, because it was written from an embracing vision. It does not ennoble war; it merely perceives it as the agency through which men reach down intoThe depths and sunken gold of being alive." ? Issue of Harper's Weekly (12 September 1914) with the "August, 1914"poem. First American publication probably after the September 1 issue of The English Review.? Book with signed drawing of Masefield, 5 June 1931, matching the frontispiece sketch) and American ed. of (New York: Macmillan, 1914), both in very good condition in slightly chipped jackets, with the poem; ? Book; English ed. of Philip the King and Other Poems (London: William Heinemann, 1914); ? ALS to Mr. Cross, n.d., stating that he hopes to be at the Library on Wednesday and will have to leave after the reading.? ALS to Mrs. or Miss Packard, thanking her for the ticket and hoping to meet her when he comes to the Club (with news clipping of Masefield's poem on Queen Elizabeth's marriage). ? TLS to Hilda E. Woodruff, 28 March 1929, in appreciation that his poems have been read by her class of students. ? TLS with envelope, post-marked 19 May 1939, to John Chester Adams, Professor of English at Yale University, stating that he is "sending off a book to Mr. Wilcox, with a letter about the poem which you sent to me with your letter of the 2nd of May." ? TLS to Mr. Blayney, n.d., thanking him for his letter and the setting of music ("Alas, I am not musical, and must send this back unheard.") and advising him to apply to the Society of Authors. ? B&W photo of Masefield looking at a book and standing by a book shelf ("At Home with Poet Laureate in His Eighteeth Year"), Keystone Press Agency, [1958]. Books and documents housed in a light green cloth pictorial clamshell box.John Masefield (1878-1967). Laureate 1930-67.

        Moxon & Co., Edward- Autograph Letter Signed] To Bernard Bolingbroke Woodward

      - 3 pages. A fascinating and informative letter in the backdrop of the historical dispute between many key players (Moxon & Co; its acting manager and later partner, J. Bertrand Payne; the poet Alfred Tennyson; and the illustrator Gustave Dore). A complicated and intertwined series of events (beginning with Edward Moxon's death in 1958) had transpired, culminating in Payne's rise to power in the company and the resultant estrangement of Tennyson (as well as Browning and Swinburne), all factors leading to the decline and ultimate closure of the famed publisher. Signed Moxon & Co., and probably written by one of the principal partners (other than Payne, who is mentioned in the letter), to Bernard Bolingbroke Woodward, influential nonconformist, antiquarian collector, and librarian to the Queen at Windsor Castle. A letter written seemingly in response to queries concerning Gustave Dore as well as the availability and prices of some original illustrations and proofs. On Moxon's 'Dover Street Stationary,' March 6, 1867. "Dear Sir, We will send for a copy of Dore's 'Elaine' for notice in the next No. of the 'Fine Arts Quarterly Review.' Dore was quite mistaken as to the motives which led to his having a commission for the "Idylls of the King." He adds, "Our literary partner, J. Bertrand Payne, who has studied art as applied to book illustration rather deeply, was long of opinion that the Frenchman's talents would be profitably employed in the depiction of those grandly chivalrie scenes.he discussed the subject with the Laureate & Mr. Palgrave very fully." He goes on to explain in detail the nature and quality of Dore's illustration, adding, "These drawings are for sale & are thrice the size of the Engravings." He discusses an edition published in Paris, by Hachette et Cie and adds, "so much approved by the Emperor, that through the intervention of Lord Cowley he accepted its dedication for the editor and is about to confer upon him the baron of the region." etc., much more. Glue and mounting marks along outside edges, else very good.

        John Masefield Collection of ephemera (signed), books and photo, including signed carbon copy of "August 1914" poem

      1958. . John Masefield Collection of ephemera include;• Signed mimeo or carbon copy typescript  (ND circa 1914 presumed] of Masefield's famous WWI historic and only war poem entitled "August, 1914". It was the first poem to see print after war was declared. It's a powerful, long and moving poem that connects seamlessly between the beauty of life in the Berkshire landscape and the sadness and tragedy of life in the trenches.The following is quoted from Wikisource John Masefield's Place In English Poetry;"One can think of no other poet since Chaucer so purely English in derivation and in spirit. His intense nationalism has no doubt contributed to the marking down of his talents in some critical quarters, for nationalism nowadays receives a cold scrutiny. Masefield's is of the kind that will not be stared down. Its basis is spiritual, in. . . the heartfelt things past-speaking dearTo unknown generations of dead men.Out of that nationalism of his came the noblest utterance in poetry that the War brought forth. If Masefield had written nothing else besides "August, 1914," his name would be remembered among the English poets. No blustering patriot, no facile glorifier of war, wrote those lines. If men died for love of England they also . . . died (uncouthly, most) in foreign landsFor some idea but dimly understoodOf an English city never built by handsWhich love of England prompted and made good.The mood in which Masefield watched the approach of war, as it is here recorded, is not the eager consecration to which young men like Rupert Brooke gave expression. Masefield's poem has lost nothing of its poignancy in the aftermath of disillusion, because it was written from an embracing vision. It does not ennoble war; it merely perceives it as the agency through which men reach down intoThe depths and sunken gold of being alive." • Issue of Harper's Weekly (12 September 1914) with the "August, 1914"poem.

        These Thousand Hills (Original screenplay from the 1959 film, signed by actor Don Murray)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1958. Final script for the 1959 film. Based on the novel of the same name by Pulitzer Prize winning author A.B. Guthrie, Jr., the third installment in Guthrie's trilogy about the Old West. SIGNED by actor Don Murray on the title page. An unusual Western, with touches of the darkness characteristic of film noir, "These Thousand Hills" is a character study of a cowboy played by Don Murray who aspires to ascend the ranks of the burgeoning Wyoming society. He borrows the life savings of a saloon girl to start his ranch, and then marries into a higher rank. Though at first he distances himself from the saloon girl in order to run for US Senator, Murray must then come to her aid when a rancher has beaten her. An ambitious film from director Fleischer in which we are asked to question the value of financial success and the labels of "good" and "evil." Some beautiful cinematic moments, with Lee Remick giving a standout performance as Callie the saloon girl. Set in Wyoming. Blue titled wrappers, noted as FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 181 and production No. 740, dated May 22, 1958.

        The Memoirs.

      London: Collins, , 1958. Octavo, original rose madder cloth in price-clipped dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece and numerous other plates and maps. Very good, the jacket just a little rubbed and toned. First edition. This copy neatly inscribed on the front free endpaper, "Inscribed for Terence Young by Montgomery of Alamein, May 1959". The recipient was the maverick film-maker who directed the first three Connery Bond movies. During the Second World War, Young served was an intelligence officer attached to the Field Security Section of the Guards Armoured Division, and saw heavy fighting at Normandy and Arnhem. Monty's Memoirs are an autobiography every bit as spiky and controversial as its author, ruffling feathers in the highest places, his comments on Eisenhower's leadership led to a breach in what was once a close friendship. It was inevitably, however, a runaway success. On hearing that Monty's Memoirs had made more money than his History of the English-Speaking Peoples, Churchill is said to have remarked, "I'm not at all surprised that the Field-Marshal lived up to the finest tradition of Englishmen by selling his life as dearly as possible." Not an uncommon book signed or inscribed, but this a particularly nice copy.

        NORTH BY NORTHWEST

      [Hollywood]: Loew's / [MGM], 1958. 1-116,124-129 leaves. Quarto. Mimeograph typescript, printed on rectos only of pale green and salmon stock. Bradbound in studio wrappers. Pencil ownership inscription and a few ink annotations on upper wrapper, a few early leaves with ink revisions, else very good. An incomplete copy of a revised draft of this original screenplay, with dated revises spanning the period above. This copy belonged to cast member Pat[rick] McVey, who played Sergeant Flamm. The draft is complete up until page 8 of scene 124, and then resumes briefly to include scenes 128 and part of 129 -- McVey's character appears in scene 127 and he evidently extracted the leaves for his scene, and then, having made his appearance, received no further additions to the script (i.e. scenes 129 through 281). One of Hitchcock's iconic films, NORTH BY NORTHWEST starred Cary Grant, Eve Marie Saint, James Mason, Leo G. Carroll, et al. Lehman was nominated for an Oscar for his script. Screenplays for Hitchcock's major films are generally scarce -- this substantial fragment is not without merit.
