        The Naked Lunch

      Paris: The Olympia Press, 1959. First edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. A Near Fine copy in like dust jacket. A small black ink spot on the lower edge of the page block, otherwise in excellent condition. In a dust jacket that is slighly toned along the spine. First printing with the green border on the title page and the original publisher's price of 1500 Francs on both the rear cover of the book and the rear flap. No price defacement, stickers or stamps as is usually found on later states of the book and jacket. Quite scarce in this condition and in the first state. William S. Burroughs' infamous novel meanders through the absurd and perverse in an improbable, non-linear narrative. While the adventure jumps from fictional dictatorships, to Mexico, to space, much of the book remains inspired by Burroughs' own drug addiction and his friendships with Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg, core Beat Generation members. Upon its publication in 1959, "The Naked Lunch" was banned from numerous cities though its literary significance was later recognized by Time magazine and the book was included in their Top 100 English speaking novels from 1923 to 2005. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.

        Shakespeare and Company

      1959 - BEACH, Sylvia. Shakespeare and Company. New York: Hourcourt, Brace, 1959. Octavo, original ivory cloth, original dust jacket. $12,000.First edition of Sylvia Beach's memoir, "particularly valuable for the many insights into Joyce's work and the authentic personal views it provides of the man himself" (New York Times), a scarce presentation copy inscribed by Beach above and below the half title, "For Julian, with Sylvia's very affectionate [Shakespeare and Company] regards," in original dust jacket.It was in Sylvia Beach's legendary Paris bookshop, Shakespeare and Company, that "James Joyce's Ulysses was born." In her memoir, Shakespeare and Company, Beach tells her story "with simplicity, freshness and modesty. And in doing so she succeeds in bringing back that whole small""but intensely creative""world around her bookshop and that of her friend, Adrienne Monnier". which was the center of so much French literary activity." Her book "is particularly valuable for the many critical insights into Joyce's work and the authentic personal views it provides of the man himself." After her publication of Ulysses "on Joyce's birthday, Feb. 2, 1922, Shakespeare and Company was known to writers the world over. No one failed to call". but it is finally Joyce whose portrait remains""a shy, quiet, infinitely curious, kindly, generous man". She shows us the artist whose complex existence was given to his work". As Beach says, 'He treated people invariably as his equals" (New York Times). An excerpt, Ulysses in Paris, was printed in 1956 for private distribution to friends of the author and publisher. Ink shelf markings on spine and front free endpaper.Book near-fine, short closed tear to rear panel of dust jacket, also near-fine. A desirable inscribed copy.

        La radio rompe l'isolamento nella casa di campagna anche per il piu' remoto e solitario casolare e' un legame continuo completo con il mondo cittadino. Informa prima d'ogni altro mezzo. Diverte come uno spettacolo in teatro. Riposa, variando il ritmo ...

      M. Moneta, 1959. Manifesto cm 99,5 x 99,5, stampato a colori al recto. Piccoli difetti in particolare in corrispondenza di antiche pieghe. Qualche segno di brunitura. Raro manifesto appartenente a una serie prodotta dalla Rai nel 1959 come promozione del mezzo radiofonico. La serie (in realta' semi sconosciuta) comprendeva 9 immagini utilizzate per i grandi manifesti ma anche per una brochure contenente cartoline. I manifesti, oltre che da Michele Provinciali, erano firmati dai migliori grafici dell'epoca: Steiner, Waibl, Munari, Benca, Huber, Bianconi, Tovaglia, Iliprandi. I manifesti  vennero utilizzati nel 1959 alla Fiera Internazionale di Milano, nell'ambito di un allestimento ad opera di A. & P.G. Castiglioni per la Rai. Cfr. Pubblicita' in Italia 1959-60, p. 198.

        Rome

      1959 - KLEIN, William. Rome: The City and Its People. Paris: Editions du Seuil, (1959). Tall quarto, original black cloth, photographic endpapers, original photographic dust jacket. $7000.First edition, French issue, the second volume in Klein's acclaimed series of four "city" books, a distinctive association copy inscribed on the page before the title page to longtime friend, fellow photographer Peter Turnley, "To Peter, ROME SWEET ROME, en toute amitié, William [line drawn] William Klein Paris 2005," with over 130 vivid, high-contrast heliogravures (many double-page), scarce in original dust jacket.According to Fellini, "this is the best Rome there is and Klein is the best photographer there is. He knows Rome like a book and this is it." "Cheesy, delirious, pure Pop art," William Klein's Rome continues the "raw, kinetic and utterly original" innovations of Life is Good (1956) (Roth, 140-41). His genius resides in an unerring ability to remind "us that much great, serious art is often about play, achieved simply by experimenting with the possibilities of the material. Forget trance and witness-the revels are the thing" (Parr & Badger I:243). Rome is the second volume in Klein's "city" series, "four books of photography which shook the very roots of this medium's young tradition". filled with raw, grainy, swirling yet abrupt images, which visually describe these cities in a manner never previously seen before" (Christian Sciene Monitor). First edition, French issue; London, New York and Rome editions published same year. Text in French. Open Book, 178. See Icons of Photography, 120. This rare association copy is from the collection of Peter Turnley, renowned photographer for Newsweek and contributing editor for Harper's Magazine who has covered "almost every important international news event of the last 15 years" (New York Times). Warmly inscribed by Klein in Paris, where both photographers are based.Images clean and fresh, front inner paper hinge starting but sound; some chipping with loss to edges of bright, unrestored dust jacket. An exceptional association copy in extremely good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Shuttered Room and Other Pieces (First Edition, review copy and publisher's file copy)

      Arkham House, Sauk City, WI 1959 - First Edition. REVIEW COPY, with tipped-in publisher's slip at the front endpaper. A few notations on the jacket indicate that this copy was a publisher's file copy: a sticker on the spine with the number "44887" in pencil, the same number in pencil on the jacket front panel, and stamped in blue ink on the front pastedown. Several notations and corrections in holograph pencil appear throughout, the word "omit," among others, found on several leaves at the heading. Many numerical notations in pencil appear at the table of contents, suggesting rearrangement for subsequent printings. Very Good plus in a Very Good dust jacket. Extremities lightly rubbed and bumped, slight fraying at a couple of corners, and a few leaves with tiny corner creases. Jacket moderately toned (mostly at the rear panel and at the verso), lightly rubbed, with a few tiny closed tears and brief chipping at the extremities, and a small bruise to the rear panel at the spine fold. Overall, an interesting and perhaps unique copy of the fifth Arkham House collection of Lovecraft's work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
