        Couleur, amour. 13 aquarelles, gouaches, lavis de Marc Chagall

      P. Au vent d'Arles, Ny graphic society, 1958. Couleur, amour. 13 aquarelles, gouaches, lavis de Marc Chagall. Préface de Jean Cassou. P. Au vent d'Arles, Ny graphic society 1958. in folio en ff, chemise à rabats illustrée. Tirage à 320 Moulin Richard de bas. Procédé Daniel Jacomet. Chagall did not make many pochoirs. For those who don't know what the technique means: it's a manual reproduction method, in which a hole is made in a plate, which is filled with colour, mostly by brush. One plate for each colour. In this way the pochoir is built up. In the case of Couleur Amour these are reproductions of original aquarelles and gouaches, in a very high quality. There is a watermark in the paper that says: "Ceci est une reproduction", followed by Chagall's signature.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good.

        Set of nine preliminary drawings for The Rabbits' Wedding

      n.d. [1950s]. Original Illustrations. Near Fine. Original Illustrations. Nine delightful original preliminary illustrations for The Rabbits'; Wedding, published in 1958. A collection of adorable rabbits in various poses, drawn in black and white in pencil on thin paper. All are initialed by Williams and are in very good to fine condition. Garth Williams (1912-1996) was one of the foremost illustrators of the twentieth century. In addition to this book, he is known for his illustrations for many classic children';s books, including Charlotte';s Web, Stuart Little, the Little House series, and Bedtime for Frances. He also illustrated many Little Golden books. The Rabbits'; Wedding created a controversy in many places in the South when it was published because it depicts the marriage of a white rabbit and a black rabbit. It was perceived as somehow supporting inter-racial marriage, rather than as a book about "soft furry love," to quote Mr. Williams. Despite the initial controversy, the work has endured as a beloved children';s book. ORIG/121211.

        Appointment with Dishonour [Signed by William H. Gage, Jr. and by George Seferis]

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1958. First edition. A Very Good + to Near Fine copy of the first American edition, first printing -- which preceded the UK edition, in a Very Good, bright, attractive, dust jacket (short closed tear where the upper front panel meets the spine panel, tiny hole near spine tail, some general wear), INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY WILLIAM GAGE TO NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR GEORGE SEFERIS on the title page as follows: "For George S.____________ / with esteem and / admiration / Bill Gage", and further INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS to fellow author Rex Warner on the front free endpaper as follows: "Rex Warner [underlined] / George Seferis [in Greek, followed by a 4-line poetic inscription in Greek ending with an ellipsis and after which Seferis has drawn 5 stacked curved lines]. The novel dramatizes the Cypriot Revolution against British occupation of Cyprus (a chaotic period during which many Cypriots sought the incorporation of Cyprus into Greece and which, in 1955 gave birth to the violent pro-Enosis movement known as the EOKA whose military wing, led by George Grivas, sabotaged military installations, ambushed military convoys and patrols, and assassinated British soldiers and local informers.) George Seferis first visited Cyprus in 1963 and immediately fell in love with the island. As an important Greek Diplomat who ultimately became Ambassador to the UK, Seferis spent much time and effort seeking a resolution of the Cyprus question, investing a great deal of effort and allowing his personal views to intrude on his diplomatic efforts. Also one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, Seferis won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture", making him the first Greek ever to have received the Prize. British author Rex Warner, to whom Seferis has inscribed this novel, was Seferis' close friend and frequent translator. In addition to their deep relationship as friends, each man held the other in high regard, and Warner's excellent translations of his work were a major factor in Seferis' winning the Prize. Both authors were fascinated by Cyprus as, clearly, was Gage. Copies of this novel are quite uncommon, and signed copies are as rare as hen's teeth. Of course, books signed by George Seferis are far from plentiful to the market, and copies of this novel signed by Seferis, who was deeply interested in the subject matter of this work, are rare indeed. A Very Good + copy of this scarce novel centered around the Cypriot Revolution, INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY WILLIAM H. GAGE, JR. AND BY GEORGE SEFERIS. RARE.

        Il Gattopardo.

      Milano, Feltrinelli, 1958.In-8° (205x127mm), pp. 332, cartonatura editoriale. Etichetta del tempo di libreria palermitana al piatto posteriore. Ingialliture marginali della carta. Buon esemplare. Prima edizione (tiratura di 2000 esemplari non numerati; il volume porta la data del novembre 1958, ma venne stampato il 25 ottobre di quell'anno), postuma, di uno dei libri più celebri e controversi della letteratura italiana novecentesca, insignito del Premio Strega nel 1959 e trasposto al cinema, nel 1963, da Luchino Visconti. Prefazione di Giorgio Bassani. "Romanzo scritto tra il 1954 e il 1956, con il titolo originario Ultime Luci, fu rifiutato da Vittorini per "I Gettoni" di Einaudi, e per Mondadori. Il manoscritto fu poi inviato, dopo la morte dell'A., da Elena Croce a Bassani, che lo pubblicò" (Gambetti / Vezzosi). La prima edizione si esaurì nel dicembre del 1958, conoscendo, da allora, numerosissime ristampe, al punto che, tre anno dopo l'uscita del romanzo, esso aveva già venduto oltre 300.000 copie. Salutato da molti come un capolavoro, per l'eccellenza dello stile e per il mirabile affresco dello sgretolarsi della vecchia aristocrazia siciliana, il libro lacerò comunque i giudizi della critica, ricevendo feroci stroncature soprattutto dagli esponenti della "Neo-Avanguardia". Collana "Biblioteca di Letteratura. I Contemporanei", n. 4. Gambetti/Vezzosi, p. 919. Spaducci, p. 292.

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1958 Inscribed to Joey Smallwood. 8vo. 368 pp. First Edition, early impression, (14th), of this landmark work, depicting a consumer culture gone wild, rich in goods but poor in the social services that make for community. "One of those rare works that forces a nation to re-examine its values" - The New York Times, April 30, 2006, nicely Inscribed by John Kenneth Galbraith to Premier Joey Smallwood of Newfoundland on the front free endpaper. &#39;For the honourable J.R. Smallwood, with my warm regards, John Kenneth Galbraith&#39;. &#39;Then I had a long and close association with the most notable figure in Newfoundland history and one vital in that of Canada as well. That was Joseph Robert Smallwood. Joey Smallwood, one of the most diversely alert and interesting political leaders of this century and a central figure in the anniversary celebrations of these days. Joey Smallwood was several times in touch with me in Cambridge called me here to St. John&#39;s on one or two occasions for meetings, was one of the most interesting (and I must say unpredictable) political figures of his time. I now tell of something which until this moment is still unknown. He once pressed me hard and seriously to return to the land of my birth as head of this university. Under the arrangement that would be proposed I would retain a part-time commitment to Harvard. Not without difficulty I persuaded him that this would not be good for this university, would be unacceptable at Harvard and possibly questionable for Galbraith. Had I accepted, there would have been one certain and sad result: I would not today be receiving an honorary degree. Excerpted from the Convocation address by Dr. John Kenneth Galbraith at Memorial University Of Newfoundland - 75th anniversary of the founding of Memorial University College in 1925. (A long association well-documented). A near fine copy in brick coloured cloth, black morocco - style label with gilt titles to the spine, (some hand notations throughout), in a bright, fresh dustwrapper with some minimal use.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition.
