        ROBERT FRANK: THE AMERICANS

      (FRANK, ROBERT). Frank, Robert. Introduction by Jack Kerouac. ROBERT FRANK: THE AMERICANS. New York: Grove Press, Inc., 1959. First American Edition. Oblong 8vo. Cloth in Pictorial Dust Jacket. Photography Monograph. Near Fine/Good +. vi + np, profusely illustrated in b&w. "The Americans" is the iconic book that established transplanted Swiss photographer/filmmaker Robert Frank's reputation as one of the great socially conscious post-war essayists. Combined with the first appearance of Jack Kerouac's legendary in your face introduction ("Anybody doesnt like these pitchers dont like potry, see?"), Frank's images reveal an emerging cold war superpower wrestling with its past as it hurtles toward a decade of tumultuous change. An otherwise internally bright, most handsome example of the uncommon 1959 first Grove Press, Inc. edition (whose 1958 Delpire first edition is cited on page 39 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", pages 332-333 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and pages 252-253 of "The Book of 101 Books") showing very light soiling along the top edge of the textblock along with a previous owner's name in ink on the front pastedown. The fragile dust jacket is present and complete, though showing a few creases and short closed tears along with some age-toning, light soiling, and foxing. All in all this is an unusually nice copy of a significant book that has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

        The Birthday Party

      Encore Publishing Co., London 1959 - First edition. A trifle rubbed, still fine in wrappers. The uncommon true first edition of Pinter's first play. Inscribed by him to his first wife Vivien Merchant: "Dec. 59 To Vivien, Love D." The "D." is for David. Pinter, who was also an actor, used the stage name David Baron and almost all his early material inscribed to Merchant is signed thus. Neither this edition, nor the first trade edition published by Methuen in England contained a printed dedication. However, the first American edition, *The Birthday Party & The Room: Two Plays*, which was the first edition to contain a printed dedication, was dedicated to Merchant. Thus, to our lights, this could with fairness be considered the dedication copy of the Nobel laureate's first book -- it is certainly as close to one as could otherwise exist. An exceptional association copy of a very uncommon book. Housed in custom full cloth clamshell box. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Cabinet photograph of Charles Darwin circa 1854 by Maull and Polyblank

      London, 1959. Darwin, Charles (1809-82). Cabinet-size portrait photograph by Maull & Polyblank. [London, ca. 1854]. 165 x 148 mm. Archivally framed (frame measures 363 x 308 mm.). Tiny areas of loss at left margin, but fine otherwise. Rare portrait by the noted Victorian photography firm of Maull & Polyblank, showing Darwin in middle age, seated and facing left, with his right hand on a table. This portrait was used as the frontispiece to Francis Darwin’s Life and Letters of Charles Darwin (1884), with a caption incorrectly identifying the photographers as Maull & Fox; the firm of Maull & Fox, a successor to Maull & Polyblank, was not established until 1879. During the past 55 or so years we have seen one example each of two different original photographs of Darwin on the market that were taken around the time of first publication of On the Origin of Species (1859). This is the only example of this famous portrait of Darwin that we have seen on the market during the past 55 years.

        My Philosophical Development. [Beautifully Signed by Bertrand Russell]. [With chapters on Principia Mathematica and an Appendix with an essay by Alan Wood: "Russell's Philosophy - a Study of its Development"].

      George Allen & Unwin, London 1959 - First Edition. London, George Allen & Unwin, 1959. 16cm x 24cm 279 pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket. Some mild signs of foxing. Otherwise in very good condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Very scarce book with the original signature of Bertrand Russell, one of the founders of analytic philosophy. Highly Collectable. Includes the following chapters: My Present Views of the World / Excursion into Idealism / Logical Technique in Mathematics / Principia Mathematica: Philosophical Aspects / Principia Mathematica: Mathematical Aspects / The Impact of Wittgenstein / Theory of Knowledge / The Retreat from Pythagoras / etc. Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell (18 May 1872 – 2 February 1970) was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic, political activist and Nobel laureate. At various points in his life he considered himself a liberal, a socialist, and a pacifist, but he also admitted that he had "never been any of these things, in any profound sense". He was born in Monmouthshire into one of the most prominent aristocratic families in the United Kingdom. In the early 20th century, Russell led the British "revolt against idealism". He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy along with his predecessor Gottlob Frege, colleague G. E. Moore, and his protégé Ludwig Wittgenstein. He is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians. With A. N. Whitehead he wrote Principia Mathematica, an attempt to create a logical basis for mathematics. His philosophical essay "On Denoting" has been considered a "paradigm of philosophy". His work has had a considerable influence on logic, mathematics, set theory, linguistics, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science (see type theory and type system), and philosophy, especially the philosophy of language, epistemology, and metaphysics. Russell was a prominent anti-war activist; he championed anti-imperialism and went to prison for his pacifism during World War I. Later, he campaigned against Adolf Hitler, then criticised Stalinist totalitarianism, attacked the involvement of the United States in the Vietnam War, and was an outspoken proponent of nuclear disarmament. In 1950 Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought" (Wikipedia) Sprache: English Some mild signs of foxing. Otherwise in very good condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Very scarce book with the original signature of Bertrand Russell, one of the founders of analytic philosophy.

      Chapman & Hall, 1959. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine in near fine dustjacket, fading to the title lettering on the spine as is common, a small price cut, tiny nick at spine heel. The green flyer requesting subscriptions for the Ronald Knox Memorial Prize is laid in at page 12. The full title on the title page is 'The Life of the Right Reverend Ronald Knox Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford and Pronotary Apostolic to His Holiness Pope Pius X11 compiled from the original sources'; Evelyn Waugh has signed the title page in brown ink and corrected the misprint in the word Pronotary by adding an insertion mark with the letters TO beside it. Also included is a letter from Waugh, on his Combe Florey headed notepaper, in which he writes 'Dear Sir, If you would send Ronald Knox here with stamped & addressed label & wrapping for return, I will write my name in it & correct two egregious misprints./In payment please put whatever you think suitable into the box at your nearest Catholic church./ Yours faithfully/Evelyn Waugh'. The other egregious misprint to which he referred is on page 39 where, in the Latin phrase 'Hic est calixmeus', Waugh has crossed out 'meus', put an insertion mark between 'est' and calix' and put in the margin 'enim'. A unique copy therefore of this biography of Monsignor Knox, for whom Waugh was literary executor.

"In The Americans Frank has given us a vision of the United States that is as true or untrue as we care to make it. What is certain is that it changed the face of photography in the documentary mode … it paved the way for three decades of photographs exploring the personal poetics of lived experience. Many memorable photobooks have been derived from this mass of material. None has been more memorable, more influential, nor more fully realized than Frank's masterpiece" (Parr/Badger).

        ORIGINAL CORRECTED MANUSCRIPT AND CORRECTED TYPESCRIPT FOR THE WESTERN SHORT STORY, "THIRTY NINE DAYS TO GLORY"].

      [N.p., likely Los Angeles. 1957-1959]. - [48],[2],48,10pp. largely rectos only. Contemporary glazed cloth boards, gilt. Minor wear at spine ends and corners, some rubbing. Very good. The original manuscript with numerous added items, presented by author James Warner Bellah to his friend, Charles Benton. James Warner Bellah was a veteran of both World War I and World War II, and a popular western author during the 1930s through the 1950s. He wrote numerous books and stories centering on cavalry and Indians, largely pulp fiction published in periodicals and paperbacks, and occasionally serialized in more respectable outlets such as the Saturday The present work is comprised of Bellah's handwritten manuscript (with numerous holographic corrections, emendations, and paste-overs), the typescript (with a few holographic corrections), and the published version of the short story (extracted from the magazine) bound together in that order. The recipient, Charles Benton presumably bound the manuscript, typescript, and magazine text together at a later date. The story is titled "Thirty Nine Days to Glory" and concerns the "real story of Custer's Last Fight" according to the subtitle added to the final printed version, which appeared in the September 1959 issue of HOLIDAY magazine. Bellah presented each item to Benton separately, each time including a presentation inscription; the inscription on the manuscript is dated Aug. 24, 1957, the others undated. Bellah included a signed note (also bound in) when he transmitted the manuscript to Benton that carries some importance for Bellah scholars, as he writes: "This is only one of two original manuscripts of mine that I have not burned as a matter of routine after they were typed. The other is that of 'The Valiant Virginians' which was requested by and is now on permanent exhibit at the Columbia University Library in New York. Who knows - you may ultimately have a fortune." An excellent literary item for the western collector, and the only obtainable Bellah manuscript in the world. EVENING POST. Several of Bellah's stories were adapted to film, including three by director John Ford: FORT APACHE, SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON, and RIO GRANDE. Bellah also co-wrote the screenplays for THE SEA CHASE and THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, and wrote for television throughout the 1950s and '60s.

        Peter Doig. Alpiniste. Vorzugsausgabe in Leinenkassette. Ex Libris #11. Aufl. 40 Expl.

      - Der schottische Maler Peter Doig (Jahrgang 1959) gilt als einer der wichtigsten Künstler der Gegenwart und stellt in den großen Museen der Welt aus; auf Auktionen erzielen seine Bilder glamouröse Verkaufszahlen. Obwohl er figürlich arbeitet, ist sein Stil nicht fotorealistisch, sondern passt so richtig in keine gängige Kategorie. Er malt keine Landschaften, sondern »erinnerte« Momente, Landschaften, die verglühen, kurz nachdem man sie betrachtet hat. Für die Ex Libris- Vorzugsausgabe des Salon Verlages hat er ein Reprint des Buches »The Wonders of Ski-ing« aus dem Jahre 1932 ausgewählt, einen neuen Umschlag für das Buch entworfen und ein farbiges, signiertes Ex Libris gestaltet. Zusammen mit einer signierten Kaltnadelradierung, Aufl. 40 Expl., Blattgröße 54 x 40 cm, Plattengröße (Bild) 28,5 x 22,5 cm in einer schönen, leinenbezogenen Klappkassette kann der Sammler und Liebhaber, aber auch der Einsteiger in das Sammeln illustrierter Ausgaben Anteil nehmen an der Produktion eines der »Shooting stars« der internationalen Kunstszene. Die Kassette enthält: 1 Künstlerbuch »The Wonders of Ski-ing«, 22 x 28 cm, 288 Seiten, 1200 sw Abb., Text engl., Künstlereinband, signiert. 1 Ex Libris #11, signiert, nummeriert, Aufl. 300 Expl. 1 Kaltnadelradierung Auflage 40 Expl. sign., num.

        La Liberté des Mers

      Maeght 1959 - 57 x 38 cm Le 5 avril 1950, Reverdy acheva une copie manuscrite du poème La Liberté des Mers et son écriture particulièrement grande fut reproduite grandeur nature. Le travail d'impression, avec les lithographies de Braque, ne fut terminé que cinq ans plus tard, le 15 juin 1959. Braque était célèbre pour l'intérêt qu'il portait au procédé graphique et pour la patience avec laquelle il attendait d'avoir obtenu les meilleurs résultats. Ce majestueux livre d'artiste de presque 40 centimètres sur 60 ne fut finalement publié que fin mai 1960, un mois avant le décès de Reverdy (le 17 juin). Il doit son nom au classique d'Hugo Grotius (ou Hugo de Groot) sur le droit maritime: le livre Mare liberum, c'est-à-dire 'la mer libre'. Les lithographies de Braque sont des illustrations en pleines pages, calmes et de teintes pastel. Sur certaines des pages de textes, des décorations en vert ou en noir ont été apposées. Celles-ci sont plus foncées et de tonalité plus intense, et furent imprimées selon un procédé spécial par l'imprimerie Mourlot frères. Les lithographies de Braque semblent rester modestement à l'arrière-plan afin de laisser toute la place au texte, un mariage de prose et de poésie qui est en partie basé sur des poèmes publiés antérieurement. Mais à certains endroits du livre, les images de Braque envahissent le texte. Dans le poème 'Mirage' par exemple, sont dessinées les gouttes de pluie d'une averse, et les traits verticaux qui traversent les lettres et les lignes donnent au lecteur des vers 'Il ne pleut plus que sur les arbres et sur ma tête' l'impression d'une irritante ondée virtuelle. Paris: Maeght Editeur, 1959. Soft cover. État : Very Good. 1st Edition. 4° 18 pp - Loose leaf edition. High quality reproductions. Text in French. ATTENTION, le livre est un livre lourd, vérifié avec nous le prix du transport. PAY ATTENTION, to the fact that the book is heavy so ask the for shipping price.

        Mansart Builds a School

      Mainstream Publishers, New York 1959 - First edition. A bookplate on the front pastedown, paper over the front hinge cracked, but the hinge is still tight, a very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. Inscribed by Du Bois to a fellow author: "For Van Wyck Brooks, W.E.B. Du Bois May 26, 1960." Although the long careers of both Harvard-educated authors overlapped for many decades, Brooks and Du Bois apparently did not know one another well until relatively late in their lives. In 1948 Brooks made a very formal appeal to Du Bois in the Committee of One Thousand's efforts to fight the existence of HUAC. But over the following decade they evidently got to know each other much better since Brooks spoke at the 1958 installation of the Zorach bust of Du Bois at the Schomburg Collection. Du Bois's Brooklyn address is penciled below the inscription. The second book in Du Bois's *Black Flame* trilogy. See this book in 3D on our site.
