        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.

        The Carpentered Hen and Other Tame Creatures

      New York: Harper and Brothers. (1958). First. First edition. A little age-toning on the boards, near fine in near fine, first issue dustwrapper with two short tears. Inscribed (but not signed) by Updike on the front endpaper to Janet Pott: "For dearest J. in grateful memory of her many kindnesses to two very young Americans in Oxford, 1955." Laid in is an index card, evidently from the recipient's daughter, stating: "This should be in the Updike section. The inscription is from John U. & wife to Janet. And see p. 30. Genetics sometimes plays tricks." The poem on page 30, "Time's Fool," is about Janet's husband, Frederick Alexander Pott. Updike had been befriended by the Potts while in England and the poem and the book express his thanks. Updike's first book, a volume of poems written in Oxford while on a Knox Fellowship, just before returning to the United States to join the staff of The New Yorker. A wonderful early association copy of the author's first book. .

        JUEGO DE CARTAS. Dibujo: Jusep Torres Campalans.

      Alejandro Finisterre, Ed. / Tall. Gráf. Menhir, s.a. (aprox. 1958)., México - Size: 106 naipes de 11x17.4., ilustrados por Torres Campalans (Max Aub). 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.

        Mark you, things would be very different if we'd had him in Downing Street and at the White House, the Service Ministries, Lambeth Palace, the B.B.C. and London Transport

      1958. Sheet size: 192 × 140 mm. Pen and black ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 25 October 1958 and with pencil reproduction instructions recto. Two gentlemen observe Enoch Powell pass by, and comment upon his somewhat messianic contrarianism. Powell had recently returned to the back-benches after a period as financial secretary to the Treasury. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

        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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
