        Typescript manuscript of the essay "The Many Faces of Henry Kuttner," heavily corrected and signed

      [ca 1958] - 5 typescript leaves (279 x 216 mm.); pages uniformly toned, paper clip rust marks to top left-hand corner; drop title in manuscript; typescript and manuscript annotations throughout; very good.A short essay on the work and tropes of the science fiction and horror author Henry Kuttner (1915-1958), whom Leiber first met by correspondence in 1937 through H.P. Lovecraft: "Hank [i.e. Kuttner] was already breaking sharply from the Lovecraft tradition. I recall him saying that he favored revelation (the surprise twist) rather than confirmation as the more effecting story ending. He also remarked that although he liked the story of mine he'd read, he had been unable to decide for several pages whether the protagonist/was a man or a cat."

There were a lot of negotiations and trivial troubles between two families. At last on the 1st of June the wedding ceremony and party were given. I got marry YOKO a 21 years-old girl [sic]...". The letter was written on Mishima's return from his honeymoon and he writes further about his frustration in trying to compile a collection of Asian short stories: "I found out it is terribly hard to get new reliable informations [sic] about contemporary literature from whole Asia..."

      Montreal, 1958. in12 broché np (eric losfeld), montreal, 1958. paperback. état: fine. first edition. 8vo -over 7¾" -9¾" tall. erotic novel. thought to have been written by isidore isou. born in romania in 1928, isou came to paris at the end of world war ii with many ideas for a renovation of all the arts, a re-visioning from the ground up. he called himself a "lettriste," a movement of which he was initially the only member. others soon joined him, and the movement continues to grow, albeit at times under a confusing number of different names. in the 1960s lettriste, lettriste-influenced works and isodore isou gained a great deal of respect in france. isou's works and letrisme were associated with the situationist branch of the anarchist family and became the art that dominated posters, barricades, even clothing in the attempted revolution of 1968. although it seemed a highly self-contained art in the post-war period, in 1968 it suddenly became more deeply involved in active social change than such movements as existentialism and surrealism, and came closer to producing actual transformation than these movements. isou's final public appearance was at the university of paris on october 21, 2000. crippled by ill health, he remained house-bound until his death in 2007. probably one of the many publications of eric losfeld who published numerous erotic books under fake imprints during this time. the book was also seized and declared obscene in in france 21 septembre 1960. nd. c. 1958. pages uncut, includes a suite of explicit photographs at the rear. g. legman's copy. french text

        The Death Ship

      Singapore: (Frederic Prokosch). 1958. First. First edition. Batik self-wrappers with printed gold foil label. 12mo. Fine. One of 44 copies, this copy is hand-numbered by Prokosch as "One of three special copies in Tokyo Paper". Signed by the author, and additionally Inscribed by the author on the front fly with a Christmas greeting. In original envelope hand-addressed by Prokosch. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. OCLC locates a single copy, at Texas. .

        Mothers and Children

      (NY, 1958). 16mo. 20ff. First edition, limited to 60 copies signed by the artist. This copy bears a presentation inscription on the colophon page to Ben Shahn and his wife, Bernarda Bryson Shahn. Illustrated with eighteen compact etchings of babies sleeping, crying, smiling, or being held by their mothers, which have been printed in a variety of muted colors. This is Schwartz’s second publication, his first effort being a portfolio of etchings for Predatory Birds, printed at the Gehenna Press the previous year. One can certainly detect a hint of Baskin’s influence on this work, from the arrangement of typographic ornaments on the letterpress-printed title page and colophon, as well as some of the stylistic cues in Schwartz’s etchings. In a presentation binding of full olive morocco tooled in blind and gilt by the Harcourt Bindery, the spine of which has toned to an even shade of tan. Apart from some light foxing to endleaves, this is a fine copy of a rare title with an important association.

Al reverso de cada naipe hay una carta que forma parte de una amplia y variadísima correspondencia entre amigos, amigas, amantes, etc. sobre el misterioso Máximo Ballesteros. Las ilustraciones representan las figuras de la baraja, combinando la española con la del póker. En realidad son 2 barajas, cada una de 53 naipes, 13 por palo más un comodín. Según el Diccionario de Gullón consta de 108 cartas, pero parece estar equivocado, ya que todas las referencias que hemos encontrado en catálogos de fiables librerías de viejo (con eso quiero decir los que se molestan en contar los naipes) piden 106. Las barajas están en un estuche. Esta es una de las grandes obras lúdicas de Max Aub, que incluyen su biografía de Campalans y su discurso de entrada en la RAE. Muy buen ejemplar. Raro y buscado. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 2 Euros. En una caja editorial, ilustrada y con las reglas del juego. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Typed Letter Signed / Inscribed Photograph Signed / Signed First Day Cover

      This "Los Angeles Times" photographer took a well-known informal portrait of JFK in 1958 at Peter Lawford's house that later became the basis for the 1964 five-cent U.S. stamp. Three items relating to this noted image: First: Typed Letter Signed, 1p, 8½" X 11", Los Angeles, CA, 1977 June 28. Addressed to Paul Johnston. Near fine. Mild age toning. On "Los Angeles Times" letterhead, Murphy recounts the circumstances behind his JFK portrait. In part, "The picture was taken at the beach house of John Kennedy's brother-in-law, Peter Lawford. Kennedy had not announced that he would run for President, but we were certain he would. However, the question was not raised at the conference. I made several pictures of him in the rumpus room of the house which had a glass skylight. On this particular exposure, I did not use a flashbulb, as we were beginning to experiment with available light photography -- something we do all the time now with 35mm. equipment. It was this photo that Jackie Kennedy selected from hundreds for the stamp. After taking the picture, we moved out to the back yard which fronts on the Pacific Ocean. As I recall, Kennedy talked for about an hour on domestic and international affairs. None of us present bothered to ask him any questions, which is the usual procedure at press conferences. I think we became so absorbed in listening to him talk, that we forgot our usual role. But I do remember what I told my wife when I arrived at home that evening. I told her that I had photographed the future President of the United States...." Boldly signed in full in blue ballpoint. Second: Inscribed Photograph Signed, 8" X 10", Los Angeles, CA, n.y. [but dated the date the photograph was taken -- 1958 November 13]. Near fine. Glossy print of the famed JFK portrait, which shows him half-length in white shirt and tie, left arm cradling his suitcoat and right arm leaning on a table. In a light area at left of center, the photographer boldly inscribes and signs in black fineline: "Bill Murphy / Los Angeles Times / Nov. 13, 1958" in his handsome calligraphic script. Third: Signed First Day Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled in Boston, Massachusetts on 29 May 1964 and with "First Day of Issue" boldly stamped. Single 5-cent "John Fitzgerald Kennedy" stamp at upper right. Along the left edge, vertically, the photographer inscribed and signs in blue ballpoint: "Photographed at Santa Monica, / California Nov. 13, 1958 / Wm. S. Murphy, Los Angeles Times." A superb, quite scarce and exceptionally handsome trio. The original large manila envelope, signed at upper left by Murphy in pencil, is also present.

        Doctor Zhivago [Signed]

      London: Collins Harvill, 1958. First UK edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/near fine. A Near Fine copy of the first UK Edition, first printing (lower right corner to front board bumped, some very light surface marking to the boards seen when held at an angle to the light, small Johannesburg bookshop label to lower front pastedown), in a Near Fine dust jacket (tiny surface scrape to lower portion of the front panel, some pushing and tiny rubs to the spine ends, two tiny tears to the rear panel's bottom edge, small rub and tiny tear where rear panel joins the spine tail, short tear to upper right of rear panel near to the spine and a crease line moving leftward with a tiny closed tear at the crease line terminus), SIGNED BY BORIS PASTERNAK on a short note tipped to the front free endpaper and reading as follows: "With my sincerest greetings and / best wishes of happiness / and health for _ / William Harris / I sign this leaflet / August 10, 1959 / B Pasternak / Peredelkino near Moscow"-- such date being one year after the August 1958 first publication of the novel in English translation and approximately eight months prior to Pasternak's death on May 30, 1960. Peredelkino is a dacha complex southwest of Moscow noted for its literary residents and is the place where Boris Pasternak both had his home and is buried. Given the date and placement of the note, it appears that Harris was visiting Pasternak at his home. [It was in Peredelkino that Issak Babel was arrested as part of Stalin's Great Purge and from which he was taken to be executed. It is said by some that, during the Great Purge, Stalin personally crossed Pasternak's name off an execution list.] "Doctor Zhivago", the work for which Pasternak is best-known in the West was banned from being published in Russia as anti-Soviet and was smuggled to Milan for publication there in 1957. Boris Pasternak won the 1958 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his important achievement both in contemporary lyrical poetry and in the field of the great Russian epic tradition" an award which greatly angered the Soviet authorities. [Indeed, Pasternak expected Doctor Zhivago's publication to put him at great risk and, when handing over the manuscript for publication, stated: "You are hereby invited to watch me face the firing squad."] Pasternak initially determined to accept the Prize, but was told by the Soviet government that if he traveled to Stockholm to accept the award he would be refused re-entry to the Soviet Union. In consequence, Pasternak renounced the Prize. The Nobel Committee, however, stood by its decision and elected merely not to hold the presentation ceremony. Doctor Zhivago provided the basis for the enduringly-popular 1965 film of the same name starring Omar Sharif and Julie Christie. Items signed by Boris Pasternak are exceptionally difficult to find on the market. A Near Fine copy of Boris Pasternak's important and best-known work, SIGNED BY BORIS PASTERNAK on a tipped-in note written in the anniversary month of the novel's first publication in English. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.
