        Anthropologie structurale. Avec 23 illustrations dans le texte et 13 illustrations hors-texte

      Librairie Plon (1958), Paris - First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed to Jean Pouillon. In original wrappers, printed in red and black. (8), (i)-ii, (3), 4-454, (2) p. and 4 plates. Presentation copy of Lévi-Strauss' major work to his associate and one of the contributors of the book, Jean Pouillon. Not only the dedication but also the first sentence of the book refers to Pouillon: "Dans une étude récente, M. Jean Pouillon a écrit une phrase qu'il ne m'en voudra pas, j'espère, de citer en tête du présent ouvrage, car elle répond admirablement à tout ce que j'ai souhaité accomplir dans l'ordre scientifique, en doutant souvent d'y être parvenu: «Lévi-Strauss n'est certes ni le premier, ni le seul à souligner le caractère structurel des phénomènes sociaux, mais son originalité est de le prendre au sérieux et d'en tirer imperturbablement toutes les conséquences»." ("In a recent study, Mr. Jean Pouillon wrote a sentence, I hope he will forgive me to cite it in this book, that responds excellently to everything I wanted to accomplish in meaning of science, and often I doubt to be able to reach: «Lévi-Strauss is certainly neither the first nor the only one who emphasises the structural character of the social phenomena, his originality is to take it seriously and derives all its consequences imperturbably».") Pouillon's quoted article, "L'ouvre de Claude Lévi-Strauss" (Les Temps Modernes. No. 126, July 1956) was written as a commission of Jean-PauSartre, Pouillon's intimate friend, to write a review about Lévi-Strauss' recently published book the "Tristes Tropiques" for Sartre's magazine "Les Temps Modernes". The result was an in-depth study of the evolution of Lévi-Strauss' thinking and the turn of Pouillon's interest from philosophy, that he studied at University, to ethnology. He became friend with Lévi-Strauss and the editor of the ethnological magazine "L'Homme. Revue française d'anthropologie" that was established by Claude Lévi-Strauss, Emile Benveniste and Pierre Gourou. In his book "Anthropologie structurale" Lévi-Strauss explains his theory on culture, that he considers as a system of symbolic communication, to be investigated with methods that others have used more narrowly in the discussion of novels, political speeches, sports, and movies. [Ref.: Dosse, F.: History of Structuralism. The rising sign, 1945--1966. Minneapolis. University of Minnesota Press, 1997. pp. 5-8.]. With a few marginal signs (on 4 pages) and one note in ink on p. 401 by Pouillon. Four plates with black and white photographic reproductions. Spine slightly worn. Overall in very good condition. In original wrappers, printed in red and black First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed to Jean Pouillon [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Memoirs of Field - Marshal the Viscount Montgomery of Alamein. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR

      Collins 1958 8vo., First Edition, with a fine portrait frontispiece and 65 plates and maps (a number full - page) on 39, endpapers and title mildly spotted; original red cloth, gilt back, red top, backstrip lightly faded at head and tail (but all gilt entirely legible) a very good, crisp copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter chafed at extremities and lightly browned on (predominantly white) lower panel. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. With an extensive newspaper obituary and another relevant cutting loosely inserted. One of the key military memoirs of the twentieth century, this is as much an autobiography as a soldier's account of war. Written entirely by 'Monty' himself (in pencil, as so many of his official communications were composed), this characteristically straightforward (and often politically outspoken) account covers boyhood, early service with the Warwickshires, WWII and beyond (notably, about a third of the work covers his post - war career as CIGS and after). For technical military detail we look to the author's other works; here we find the simple account of a 'soldier who kept the faith'. A great read from one of the unforgettable leaders of his times. Baxter, 268; Enser, p.277.

        [Photographs]: Nearly 300 Armenian-American Vacation Polaroids

      New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Montreal, Hawaii, Naples, Barcelona. 1958-1970. A collection of 291 early Polaroid photographs taken between 1958 and the early 1970s. Photos are in color or black-and-white and all are near fine or better, and virtually all are captioned and numbered to 324, lacking 33 images. The photos document an Armenian-American family from New York through two decades of holidays, vacations, and milestones all while utilizing Polaroid Insta-film. Beginning in 1958, a decade after the invention of the Edwin H. Land's film. The photographs show winter in New York, celebrations with Turkish dancers, and a trip to Montreal. The family went to New Jersey's Asbury Park to enjoy the Atlantic Ocean and New York's Lake George. Their Armenian heritage was of great importance with trips to the Armenian Old Age Home in Emerson, NJ along with numerous accounts of traditional dancing in a variety of settings. By the 1970s the pictures are in color, just in time to capture Hawaii and a cruise on the ship Bon Vivant to Naples, Barcelona, and Cannes. Pictures of Hawaiian luaus, sunbathers in France, and Vatican City are all shown in vibrant colors. In 1948 Edwin Land, founder of Polaroid, introduced his self-developing cameras to the world, which were manufactured until 1983. The later pictures shown here were taken with the Polaroid SX70 Land camera which Time magazine's Harry McCraken dubbed, "the greatest gadget of all time." Early film developed in 60 seconds while the new model produced up to five pictures in 10 seconds and was so popular it made the cover of both Time and Life magazines. The album shadows the history of vernacular use of the instant film camera over its seminal decades and its rise in popularity through constant innovation. Unusual in that all the photographs in the album are Polaroid's, which were relatively expensive. .

Near fine, with a minor stain to the fore edge, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with the usual toning to the spine, short loss to the spine tail, minor nicks to the extremities, short closed tear to the rear panel, light soiling to the otherwise bright panels. A very good copy.

This beloved text features the iconic protagonist Holly Golightly, a passionate and free-spirited young woman living in New York City. The plot tells of an unnamed narrator, a writer, as he gets to know Holly and learns about her quest to find happiness and a place to call home. Breakfast at Tiffany's was first published in Esquire magazine in 1958 after being rejected by Harper's Bazaar for being too racy. Random House published the novella along with three of Capote's popular short stories, and it was made into a film starring Audrey Hepburn three years later. Interestingly, Holly Golightly was originally named Connie Gustafson, and Capote only changed her name as a last-minute decision shortly before publication.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

        AROMAS AND FLAVORS OF PAST AND PRESENT Inscribed to Eleanor Roosevelt

      Harper & Brothers Publishers (1958), New York - Early but not first printing. Introduction and comments by Poppy Cannon. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on a piece of Toklas's 5, rue Christine stationery: "For Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt/En souvenir of a memorable meeting in 1934./With appreciation and cordially/Alice Toklas/November 1958." Below this is an inscription by Poppy Cannon in green ink: "and with the deepest and/warmest admiration/from/Poppy/Christmas 1958." The paper, now loose, was once tipped to the top of the front endpaper and has a corresponding glue stain. It is likely that Toklas wanted to present a copy to Roosevelt and signed the stationery which she then sent to Cannon or her publisher who then tipped it into this copy to give to Roosevelt. With Eleanor Roosevelt's bookplate on the front pastedown and a small Eleanor Roosevelt estate sticker numbered 841 above it. The memorable meeting Toklas mentions was the invitation extended by Roosevelt to her and Gertrude Stein to have tea at the White House. Toklas provided the meals when Gertrude would hold court in their Paris residence to the likes of Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. James Beard called her one of the "really great cooks of all time." Glue stain to the top of the stationery as well as to the top of the endpaper and less so to the facing pastedown. Small dampstain to the heel of the spine which has "841 ER" written in ink as does the spine of the dustwrapper which is dampstained, wrinkled, and soiled. Very Good in a Good dustwrapper.

      Moskva... Moscow: Gosudarstvennoe muzykal'noe izdatel'stvo State Music Publishers [PN M. 26985 G.(Cyrillic)]. 1958. Quarto. Full tan cloth with titling stamped in red and black, imprint and (to verso) price ("40 r[ubles]") blindstamped. [i] (title), [ii]-[v] (foreword by V. Pankratova in Russian, English, French, and German), [vi] (list of orchestral instruments in Russian and Italian), 7-238 (music, with caption titles in Russian and English), [i] (contents in Russian and English), [i] (colophon in Russian). With an autograph inscription signed in blue ink to title: "Dorogomu Rostislavu Modestovichu na doroguiu pamiat'. D. Shostakovich 28 V 1958. Parizh." (To dear Rostislav Modestovich as a dear memory. D. Shostakovich. May 28, 1958, Paris). Binding very slightly bumped at corners and head and tail of spine. . First Edition. Hulme p. 408. The inscription is to the stage director and musicologist Rostislav Modestovich Gofman (or Hofman, 1915-1975). Born in Petrograd, he was taken to Paris in 1923 where he spent all his later life, assuming an important role in the Russian émigré community and beyond. Levon Atovm'ian (1907-1973), the editor of the present volume, was a close friend of Prokofiev during the latter's final years. "The Eleventh Symphony was composed for the 40th Anniversary of the October Revolution and programmatically represented the 1905 Bloody Sunday Massacre; yet appearing as it did in October 1957, its message concerning the abuse of dictatorial power invited aesopian reading as a comment on the Soviet repression of the Hungarian uprising. Although Shostakovich himself later encouraged this interpretation, the publication of his intent to write such a symphony had actually preceded the Soviet invasion of October 1956, and the programmatic scenario is extremely closely wedded to the events of 1905 ?- unimpeachable subject matter for a good communist."

Original laminated illustrated boards by Saul Steinberg, titles to front cover in red and black, titles to spine in black on a blue ground. Illustrated throughout by Frank. Spine very lightly tanned and faintly creased but an excellent copy of a vulnerable book. First edition, first printing. Frank's notorious early masterpiece was commissioned and first published as part of Delpire's ambitious "Encyclopedie essentielle" Others in the series included Les Allemandes and Les Italiennes. But it was Frank's groundbreaking adaptation of his stylistic forebears such as Walker Evans which has made this publication one of the key photographer's books of the century. The US edition was to carry an introduction by Jack Kerouac which was met in America with critical outrage. With contributions from Simone de Beauvoir, John Steinbeck, William Faulkner, and others.

        MIRANDA THE PANDA IS ON THE VERANDA

      Coward-McCann, Inc., New York 1958 - Quarto; variant taupe cloth, with titles stamped in black on spine and front cover; variant dustjacket colored in pale blue with red lettering; [40pp]; illus. Mild wear to spine ends, with a tiny, faint indentation to front cover; Near Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $2.50), edgeworn and lightly spine-sunned, with several closed tears, small edge chips, and a pea-sized chip at mid-spine; Very Good. The crime fiction author's only children's book, a collaborative work created with her lover Doris Sanders. Highsmith began a four year-long affair with Sanders in 1955, the same year she published The Talented Mr. Ripley. Sanders, an advertising copywriter at McCann-Erickson, wrote a series of nonsense rhymes involving animals, with line drawing illustrations provided by Highsmith. The book was the only tangible remainder of that relationship; Highsmith, a serial womanizer, cheated on Sanders, which ended their relationship. Known in two binding and jacket variants, with no established priority. Scarce in dustjacket, and a stopper for Highsmith collectors. Found in fewer than three dozen American institutions.

        BEST IN SHOW - ORIGINAL ART

      GWYNNE, FRED. GWYNNE,FRED. BEST IN SHOW - ORIGINAL ART AND INSCRIBED BOOK. Offered here is a finished original color illustration by Gwynne, a variation of which appears in reduced form on page 17 of his first book BEST IN SHOW published by E.P. Dutton in 1958. Included is a first edition of the book, inscribed by Gwynne. Gwynne, an American actor, is probably best known as a movie, stage and television actor (Munsters, Car 54 Where Are You, My Cousin Vinny and many more). He was also an accomplished illustrator (he was editor and cartoonist for the Harvard Lampoon) and author of children's books. "Best In Show", his first children's book is a wonderful picture book about a girl who entered her dog in a dog show where she met dog owners who bore very strong resemblances to their dogs: a man with his English Bulldog, another with his Scottie, a woman with her French Poodle and another wih a Yorkshire Terrier. The little girl's dog wins because it turns out that her dog looks just like the judge. The charming art offered here shows all of the above people with their dogs. The image measures 11" wide by 7" high executed in pen and ink and colored pencil, and is attractively framed to 20 x 16". It is dated 1957, signed and inscribed at the bottom "To Leila, with best wishes - Fred Gwynne." The book is also inscribed on the half-title by Gwynne who has crossed out the word "Show" and written "everything" so it reads "Best in Everything , To Miss Lelia Pardee, Fred G." It is also inscribed by Gwynne's wife Foxy: "Merry Christmas 1958 and love to Lee from GM [godmother] Foxy." The art belonged to the Gwynne's goddaughter who lived next door to the Gwynne's at the time. This is a wonderful illustration.

        Op 103 Simfonia No 11 "1905 god" Symphony No 11 "The Year of 1905" Partitura Score Redaktor L Atovm'ian Edited by L Atovmian [Full score] With autograph inscription signed "D Shostakovich"

      Moskva... Moscow: Gosudarstvennoe muzykal'noe izdatel'stvo State Music Publishers [PN M. 26985 G.(Cyrillic)]. 1958. Quarto. Full tan cloth with titling stamped in red and black, imprint and (to verso) price ("40 r[ubles]") blindstamped. [i] (title), [ii]-[v] (foreword by V. Pankratova in Russian, English, French, and German), [vi] (list of orchestral instruments in Russian and Italian), 7-238 (music, with caption titles in Russian and English), [i] (contents in Russian and English), [i] (colophon in Russian). With an autograph inscription signed in blue ink to title: "Dorogomu Rostislavu Modestovichu na doroguiu pamiat'. D. Shostakovich 28 V 1958. Parizh." (To dear Rostislav Modestovich as a dear memory. D. Shostakovich. May 28, 1958, Paris). Binding very slightly bumped at corners and head and tail of spine. . First Edition. Hulme p. 408. The inscription is to the stage director and musicologist Rostislav Modestovich Gofman (or Hofman, 1915-1975). Born in Petrograd, he was taken to Paris in 1923 where he spent all his later life, assuming an important role in the Russian émigré community and beyond. Levon Atovm'ian (1907-1973), the editor of the present volume, was a close friend of Prokofiev during the latter's final years. "The Eleventh Symphony was composed for the 40th Anniversary of the October Revolution and programmatically represented the 1905 Bloody Sunday Massacre; yet appearing as it did in October 1957, its message concerning the abuse of dictatorial power invited aesopian reading as a comment on the Soviet repression of the Hungarian uprising. Although Shostakovich himself later encouraged this interpretation, the publication of his intent to write such a symphony had actually preceded the Soviet invasion of October 1956, and the programmatic scenario is extremely closely wedded to the events of 1905 – unimpeachable subject matter for a good communist." David Fanning in Grove online

        AROMAS AND FLAVORS OF PAST AND PRESENT Inscribed to Eleanor Roosevelt

      New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, (1958). First Edition. Hardcover. Glue stain to the top of the stationery as well as to the top of the endpaper and less so to the facing pastedown. Small dampstain to the heel of the spine which has "841 ER" written in ink as does the spine of the dustwrapper which is dampstained, wrinkled, and soiled. Very Good in a Good dustwrapper. Extraordinary copy. Early but not first printing. Introduction and comments by Poppy Cannon. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on a piece of Toklas's 5, rue Christine stationery: "For Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt/En souvenir of a memorable meeting in 1934./With appreciation and cordially/Alice Toklas/November 1958." Below this is an inscription by Poppy Cannon in green ink: "and with the deepest and/warmest admiration/from/Poppy/Christmas 1958." The paper, now loose, was once tipped to the top of the front endpaper and has a corresponding glue stain. It is likely that Toklas wanted to present a copy to Roosevelt and signed the stationery which she then sent to Cannon or her publisher who then tipped it into this copy to give to Roosevelt. With Eleanor Roosevelt's bookplate on the front pastedown and a small Eleanor Roosevelt estate sticker numbered 841 above it. The memorable meeting Toklas mentions was the invitation extended by Roosevelt to her and Gertrude Stein to have tea at the White House. Toklas provided the meals when Gertrude would hold court in their Paris residence to the likes of Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. James Beard called her one of the "really great cooks of all time.

From 1968 onwards he would often go back to Milan, even for long stays.

(cgc) Thisis a fine press edition from the very rare 1802 edition; this edition isequally rare. The commander of the expedition was Don DionysioAlcala-Galiano, who was probably the author of this work. See Sabin69221. The text of the rare first edition is faithfully followed, printedon fine paper, and is accompanied by the same maps and plates. Howescalls this an "important voyage up the Pacific coast and the last to beundertaken by Spain ; written probably by the commander, Galiano, butattributed also to Jose de Espinosa y Tello. and to Cayetano Valdes. The Introduccion,' giving a splendid historical sketch of earlier Spanishexplorations in the same region, was the work of the maritime authority,[Martin Fernandez de] Navarrette." Henry R. Wagner suggests that the mapsare better in some respects than Vancouver's and were used by Humboldtas models for his Essai Politique sur le Royaume de la Nouvelle Espagne(1811). Exceptionally scarce, even in this Second Edition which wasproduced in thick card wraps, it is very rare in this binding. Strathern167(I); Howes (Gallano]. G18; Sabin 66221; Streeter 2458]. We found norecords that mention this de-luxe binding. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
