        Les Américaines

      Paris: Robert Delpire,, 1958. Oblong octavo. Original laminated boards decorated with a design by Saul Steinberg. Illustrated throughout with monochrome plates from photographs by Robert Frank. A stunning copy. First edition, first printing. "Robert Frank's masterpiece has become so much the photobook of legend in its first American edition [Grove Press, New York, 1959] that it is often forgotten that Delpire's original Paris edition was a different book. Its accompanying texts, gathered by Alain Bosquet, placed it more in a socio-documentary context - with a politically antagonistic, even anti-American point of view. What has made this arguably the most renowned photobook of all? Firstly, and perhaps most importantly, the majority of the pictures are instantly memorable, 'dry, lean, and transparent,' as John Szarkowski has said of them, yet also weighty and profound, even heartstopping. Secondly, there is the sequencing... Ideas ebb and flow, are introduced, discarded, recapitulated, transfigured, transposed, played off and piled up against each other with the exuberant energy of a Charlie Parker saxophone solo" (Parr & Badger).

        The Travels of Ibn Battuta

      Cambridge: for the Hakluyt Society at the University Press,, 1958-2000. 1325-1354 A. D. Translated with revisions and notes from the Arabic text edited by C. Defrémery and B. R. Sanguinetti by H. A. R. Gibb. 5 volumes, octavo. Original light blue cloth, titles to spine gilt within rolled compartments, publisher's naval device to front boards gilt, front board of vols. I-IV with French fillet border stamped in blind, vol. I fore and bottom edges untrimmed. With the dust jackets. Illustrated with sketch maps, city plans and photographic plates, several folding. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedowns of vols. I, IV and V. Vols. I-II with occasional light spotting and extremities very faintly bumped, vol. III edges foxed. An excellent set in the generally bright dust jackets a touch rubbed in places with vol. I price-clipped with small portion of loss at foot of spine and that of vol. II rather foxed. First complete edition in English of the Rihlah of Ibn Battuta, a man "rightly celebrated as the greatest traveller of pre-modern times" (Dunn, The Adventures of Ibn Battuta, a Muslim Traveller of the Fourteenth Century, p. 1). 'Abu 'Abd Allah Muhammad ibn 'Abd Allah al-Lawati al-Tanji ibn Battuta (1304-1368/69) was a jurist from Tangiers who, upon completing the Hajj, decided to take advantage of the extensive trade routes then linking the western Eurasian landmass to the Far East; travelling over land and sea, he "is estimated to have covered 75,000 miles in forty years" (Howgego). His wanderings encompassed North Africa, the Horn of Africa, West Africa and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, Central Asia, Southeast Asia and China, and his Rihlah, more properly Tuhfat al-nazzar fi ghara'ib al-amsar wa 'aja'ib al-asfar (A Gift for those who Contemplate the Oddities of Cities and Marvels of Journeys), was without doubt the most important, "longest and in terms of its subject matter, the most complex" (p.4) example of this popular genre, which usually just told of a pilgrim's progress from the Maghreb to Mecca. The work was unknown outside Muslim countries until the beginning of the nineteenth century when some partial translations were offered, Johann Gottfried Ludwig Kosegarten's in German in 1819 followed by Samuel Lee's English edition, this last based on an abridgement purchased by Burckhardt in Egypt and deposited by him at Cambridge in 1829. But following the French conquest of Algeria five manuscripts emerged; "These documents were subsequently transferred to the Bibliothèque National in Paris. Two of them represent the most complete versions of the narrative that have ever come to light. The others are partial translations, one of which carries the autograph of Ibn Juzayy, Ibn Battuta's editor. Working with these five documents, two French scholars, C. Defrémery and B.R. Sanguinetti published a printed edition of the Arabic text, together with a translation in French and an apparatus of notes and variant textual readings. Since then, translations of the work, in every case prepared from [this] text, have been published in many languages" (ibid). Sir Hamilton Gibb, the translator in the present instance, had left Oxford in 1955 to become professor of Arabic at Harvard; "Teaching, administration, and academic statesmanship left him less time for research, but he was able to take up again some of his earlier interests in history and literature, and in particular to undertake a complete translation of the travels of Ibn Battuta; his vast knowledge of Arabic and sensitive feeling for the nuances of literary style made him a remarkably good translator" (ODNB).

        Voyages Fantastiques

      1958. Signed. CYRANO, Savinen de.Voyages Fantastiques.Paris: Joseph Foret, [1958].Limited first edition of Buffet?'s interpretation of Cyrano, expressed in 18 superb folio dry-point etchings (two double-page), an unnumbered ?"exemplaire d?'artiste?" from a total edition of only 281 copies, inscribed, ?"Pour Guy et Malou, affectueusement, Bernard.?"In Voyages Fantastiques, ?"the first and perhaps the only example of an epistemological novel,?" first published in two parts, 1657 and 1662, Cyrano addresses some of the questions asked by l7th-century Rationalists concerning the world and man?'s place in it, particularly the question of knowledge and of the scientific method. Voyages Fantastiques, however, is not simply the optimistic affirmation of the scientific method: ?"The scientific adventure becomes in the end a philosophical one; the voyage becomes a quest, an allegory, a symbol?" (Jacques Prévot). To his admirers, artist Bernard Buffet was ?"pure genius.?" He was admitted in Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts at the age of 15, and only five years later won the ?"Prix de la Critique.?" During the 1950s, Buffet produced a number of livres d?'artistes, including Cyrano?'s Voyages, which ?"sold out within 48 hours?" (Time Magazine). Architectural in construction, superbly drawn, and carefully composed, these pictures are representative of Buffet?'s trademark use of strong blacks and muted grays. ?"Concerning painting,?" he insists, ?"we do not talk about it, we do not analyze it, we feel it.?" Text in French.Artist and the Book, 36.Original slipcase and chemise expertly repaired. Fine condition, inscribed.

        Arbitration between Saudi Arabia and Arabian American Oil Company.

      Geneva, Albert Kundig for Aramco in New York, [1958].. Large 4to. 6 volumes: Part 1, Statesmanship in Arbitration; Part 2: Award; [Part 3] (4 vols.): Sessions of the Tribunal - Verbatim Transcript. Bound in full auburn morocco with gilt fillets to covers; gilt titles to spines; all edges gilt.. Complete transcript of the Arbitration sessions, 27 January 1955 to 6 November 1958, and an extra 10 typed pages of details and comments by the General Counsel for the Arabian American Oil Company, George W. Ray, jr., dated 24 February 1959, included in the first volume, inscribed and signed to his wife Bonnie Dowd Ray (this volume and volume 2 have "Bonnie Dowd Ray" in gilt lettering on the lower spines). This special ten-page insertion in the first volume, on Ray's headed Aramco stationery, notes that "the contents of these pages, except annexes 9, 10, and 11 [i.e., the text of the Award in Arabic, English, and French], should never be disclosed". The typed insertion is inscribed "Dearest One" in Ray's own hand, with his postscript: "And to you, Dearest One, my love and thanks. I cannot begin to tell you how great and how timely year help was. I don't need to - because you know. I love you. George". - The subsequent 4 volumes, all in full leather, have the name of "George W. Ray, jr." in gilt at the lower spine of each volume. This is an important collection that documents in full detail the efforts by the Arabian American Oil company to keep control of the distribution of Saudi Arabian oil. The Arbitration was a result of the Saudi Arabian Government's decision, in 1954, to award a right of priority for Saudi oil transportation to the shipping company of Aristoteles Onassis. Aramco argued that this decision infringed upon their own exclusive right, granted by the Saudis in 1933 for a term of 60 years, to export the oil for which they drilled: in essence, the Onassis agreement prohibited Aramco from using their own ships. The Arbitration ruled in Aramco's favour. Consequently, the Saudi Government refused to enter into any further arbitrations and would agree only to extend Aramco's privilege for another ten years. By 1980, Saudi Arabia would take full control of their oil and its distribution; since 1988, the company has been officially known as Saudi Aramco. - Elegantly bound and in excellent state of preservation throughout. This documentation of the Arbitration process was published in a very limited press-run, with all copies going to the parties involved (Aramco and the Saudi-Arabian Government) and selected libraries. While a number of copies of the Session Transcripts are listed in library catalogues (including the Award and not infrequently additional volumes labelled "Memorials"), only the Cambrige University library is listed as holding another copy of the "Statesmanship in arbitration" volume. From the personal possession of Aramco's General Counsel, George W. Ray, jr., and his wife. - OCLC 56152161; 12823218; 1958718.

      Stamford: Overbrook Press, 1958. ONE OF 200 COPIES n. Hardcover. 302 x 222 mm (12 x 8 3/4"). 2 p.l., 204, [2] (blank) pp., [1] leaf (colophon). ONE OF 200 COPIES. Publisher's full calf, spine ruled in blind with red morocco label, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Housed in a later morocco-lipped slipcase. WITH 43 FULL COLOR SILK-SCREENED ILLUSTRATIONS, comprised of frontispiece, title frame, 37 vibrant text watercolors, two headpieces, and two initials. With original prospectus laid in. "A Century for the Century" 58; Cave, pp. 209-11. Shallow chip across half an inch at spine head, leather (including label) with a few marks and scratches, spine with two small areas discolored, paper covering upper hinge with two-inch split at head, but the binding entirely firm and not at all unpleasant, and extremely fine internally, with no signs of use. Highlighted by color illustrations possessing charm and verve, this is the Overbrook Press edition of l'Abbé Prévost's classic, originally published in 1731. The tragic tale of a young nobleman and his beautiful but mercenary lover, Manon, is the last volume in "Memoirs and Adventures of a Man of Quality." The illicit love and amoral behavior of the principal characters caused a scandal, leading to censorship--and brisk sales. For the present edition--the most ambitious publication of the Overbrook Press--the American designer, painter, and illustrator Thomas Maitland Cleland (1880-1964) was given free reign "to design and illustrate a book exactly as he wished, sparing no amount of effort, time, or expense," with the result being "a masterpiece of refined bookmaking." ("A Century for the Century") Cleland spent six years creating the silk-screened illustrations and combining them seamlessly with the text, using his favorite style, French rococo, which was perfectly appropriate for the content. Cleland was the primary illustrator among several employed by the Overbrook Press, which was founded in Stamford, Connecticut, by investment banker Frank Altschul, a hobbyist printer since childhood. Altschul was urged in 1934 by designer and compositor Margaret B. Evans of the Ashlar Press to continue that firm's work, which was drawing to a close. Altschul did, hiring Evans and then John MacNamara as pressman. The press printed a broad mix of materials, with an emphasis on technical expertise and craftsmanship. The present version of "Manon" reprints the 1753 text, from which the author eliminated some of the more objectionable passages and added a bit of sermonizing against immoral behavior. Even if the text has been partially sanitized, the illustrations, which are the highlight of this edition, are still (gracefully) amorous.

      New York: Harper and Brothers. (1958). First. First edition. One singature fallen slightly forward as usual else fine in fine, first issue dustwrapper with a later (probably publisher's) price sticker over the original price. Inscribed by Updike to Herb Yellin: "for Herb Yellin, John Updike". Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike "...liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association in the author's first book, a collection of poems. .

        McCarthyism and the Kennedys. JFK's father, after reading a "Kennedy Profile" editorial in a Massachusetts newspaper, wants to know from the editor "just what does he consider the 'McCarthy issue' ... " and "what 'the senator's performance' was ?"

      Palm Beach, Florida, March 28, 1958. 7.25" x 10.5". "Typed Letter Signed ""Joseph P. Kennedy,"" 1 page, 7.25"" x 10.5"". North Ocean Boulevard, Palm Beach, Florida, March 28, 1958. To John G.W. Mahanna, County Editor, The Berkshire Eagle, Pittsfield, Massachusetts. His personal stationery. Fine condition.Massachusetts Senator John F. Kennedy was running for reelection in 1958 and was considered a potential 1960 presidential candidate. His father writes, in full, ""Thank you for the letter and I was interested in reading the 'Kennedy Profile'; however, I would like very much to have the editor who wrote the editorial tell me just what was 'the senator's performance on the McCarthy issue' and just what does he consider the 'McCarthy issue'. I have read and listened to a lot of loose talk about it; but let's find out what his conception of the 'McCarthy issue' is and what 'the senator's performance' was."" Republican Senator Joseph R. McCarthy had died just ten months earlier, on May 2, 1957.From 1953-1956, Kennedy was a member of the Senate's Government Operations Committee which was chaired by Republican Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin from 1953-1955. McCarthy used his position as chairman of the Committee and its Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations to launch investigations designed to document charges of Communists in government. He was censured by the Senate on December 2, 1954, for behavior that was ?contrary to senatorial traditions.? Joseph P. Kennedy supported McCarthy, a fellow Irish Catholic, through thick and thin. Recovering from his October 1954 spinal operation, Senator John F. Kennedy's position on censure was recorded as ""not voting and not announced"" for or against.In the PBS American Experience episode, ""The Kennedys,"" after the Narrator, referring to Congressman John F. Kennedy's 1952 race against Republican Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge, says ""McCarthy was Irish and Catholic and had a big following in Boston, but he also had close ties to the Kennedys, so when the Republicans begged him to campaign for Lodge, he hesitated."" Author William F. Buckley Jr., then comments, ""Joe McCarthy said to me, 'If I were to do that, Cabot Lodge would definitely beat Jack Kennedy,' he said, 'but I would find it extremely difficult to do, because it would offend Jack, who?s a very good friend of mine, and it would offend the old man [Joseph P. Kennedy] and the old man gave $5,000 to my own campaign.?On March 31, 1958, just three days after Joseph P. Kennedy wrote this letter, his son the Senator publically commented on a recent magazine article in which Eleanor Roosevelt had said that she had refused to support Sen. Kennedy in his quest for the 1956 Vice Presidential nomination because what she said had been his failure to come out against Senator McCarthy. According to a United Press article datelined Washington, March 31, JFK ""disputed today the contention of Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt that he had refused to take a stand on 'McCarthyism.' Mr. Kennedy, a Democrat, said that he repeatedly had said that the Senate censure of the late Senator Joseph R. McCarthy, Republican of Wisconsin, had been 'reasonable and proper.'"""
