The 1964 film based on the book was the third James Bond movie (following Dr. No and From Russia with Love) and was the first to win an Academy Award (Sound Effects). The film starred Sean Connery, Honor Blackman, Gert Frobe and Shirley Eaton and was a critical success.

The French writer Andre Chamson wrote, "Sylvia carried pollen like a bee. She cross-fertilized these writers…She did more to link England, the United States, Ireland, and France than four great ambassadors combined. It was not merely for the pleasure of friendship that Joyce, Hemingway, Bryher, and so many others often took the path to Shakespeare and Company in the heart of Paris.

        1959 Conceptual Drawing of a Sports Car

      Mixed media on paper. Initialled, "G. L." 1959 concept design that embodies many features of the 1960's Chevrolets George Lawson was a long time Detroit designer, who contributed to the Tucker, particularly the Torpedo, as well as to many General Motors' designs. His imaginative renderings reflect the optimism of the American automotive industry as we entered the "Space Age". The drawing is signed "G. L." and the attribution is based on similar drawings. The car is depicted front and back, so that all its charms can be observed, including the angled back fins, dual headlights and domed, glass top. The angled fins famously appeared in the same year on the Chevy Impala.

        Doctor Zhivago

      Milan: Feltrinelli,, [1959]. Octavo. Original pale green boards, titles to spine and front board in black. With the dust jacket. Gift inscription to front free endpaper. Minor fading to spine ends, endpapers and top edge lightly spotted; a very good copy in the toned jacket with minor loss to spine ends, small chip to head and foot of rear panel and short closed tear to head of rear flap. Third edition, first printing, in Russian of one of the most controversial literary works of the Soviet period. It was published in late April or early May 1959, and is preceded by the Dutch and US editions of September 1958 and January 1959 respectively. Doctor Zhivago was first published in Italian by Feltrinelli in 1957 after Pasternak signed a contract with him on 30 June 1956, granting the Italian publisher the copyright for translation. The history of the book's publication in Russian is somewhat tangled: the first edition in Russian was printed by the Dutch publisher Mouton without Feltrinelli's permission, as part of a covert CIA publishing and propaganda program, and the US edition was to be likewise published without acknowledgement of Feltrinelli's copyright. However, after the legal furore surrounding the publication of the Dutch edition, that decision was reversed, and the US edition was subsequently published with Feltrinelli's full consent and collaboration. Feltrinelli intended to publish this edition concurrently with the US publication, but due to printing delays his book was not published in Italy until four months after it appeared in the US.

        The Beast Master

      Harcourt Brace and Company, New York 1959 - First edition. Foxing confined to the endpapers (and jacket flaps), else fine in very near fine dustwrapper. Signed by the author on the title page. Probably the most popular book by the "Grand Dame of Science-Fiction" (the Cleveland-born author assumed a male name to better sell her works), a sword and sorcery epic that was the uncredited source for the less than classic but mildly amusing 1982 film *The Beastmaster* with Marc Singer, Tanya Roberts, and Rip Torn, and the television series it spawned. Scarce in nice condition, uncommon signed, and very seldom found with both. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

He was known for his fantastic imagery of medieval troubadors and knights engaged in macabre rituals and inspired partially by the carnival held annually in his native Basel, Switzerland. Amos Vogel (1921-2012) was one of the most influential cineastes in New York City. He is best known for his bestselling book "Film as a Subversive Art" (1974) and as the founder of the New York City avantgarde ciné-club Cinema 16 (1947-1963), where he was the first programmer to present films by Roman Polanski, John Cassavetes, Nagisa Oshima, Jacques Rivette and Alain Resnais as well as early and important screenings by American avant-gardists of the time like Stan Brakhage, Maya Deren, James Broughton, Kenneth Anger, Sidney Peterson, Bruce Conner, Carmen D'Avino and many others. In 1963, together with Richard Roud, he founded the New York Film Festival, and served as its program director until 1968.

Several tiny pinholes in the top half of the woodcut, from the years when the card hung in Vogel's home, else Near Fine.

        American eclipse

      "Mobile, Ala.; Monterrey, Mexico; Coatzacoalcos, Mexico; San Francisco, Calif.; Baltimore, MD,": [almost certainly not published]. 1959. "An unrecorded typescript poem by a friend and muse of Bob Dylan. 12mo (approx. 6½ x 4¼""); pp. 12; text and wrappers printed on a typewriter in red and black; soiled, but otherwise very good. Apparently the author's copy, with an extension of the title in pencil on the front wrapper (... ""where there is no distinction / between perceiver, / perceiving / and / perceived""); an extra six-line verse in pencil on the back cover (""III. The largest vessel is never complete / the loudest sound can scarcely be heard...); and a half-dozen insertions and deletions in pencil in the text proper. In one of the 11 Outlined Epitaphs published in early 1964 on the sleeve of Bob Dylan's third album, The Times They Are a-Changin', Dylan rhapsodies about a series of people whirling around in his head during his early years in Greenwich Village. Of the names Dylan lists, from Francois Villon to Pete Seeger, virtually all are well-known figures. Only one was mysterious: Ed Freeman. Dylan's memorial line on the sleeve, ""the dead poems of Eddie Freeman,"" has always stood out. Edward Bromwell Freeman, Jr., born in 1939, a member of the Yale class of 1962 and class poet, died in the crash of a Varig Airlines jetliner in the Peruvian Andes Mountains in November, 1962. His obituary states that Ed attended Hill School and St. Paul's School before coming to Yale. At St. Paul's, Ed was the Captain of the wrestling and tennis teams and President of his class. He was an outstanding scholar during his undergraduate years at Yale. He was elected to the Board of the Literary Magazine, a Ranking Scholar and graduated magna cum laude. Ed studied at the Sorbonne in Paris during his junior year abroad. He had expressed the intention of becoming a professional writer after doing graduate work in world literature at the University of Copenhagen where he was intending to enroll ... Classmate Toby Berger recalls Ed arriving at Yale laden with notebooks full of poems he had penned. He organized a poetry reading in Sterling College (at Yale) and authored an avant-garde play which was performed in Silliman."" American Eclipse is a long, Beat-influenced poem which moves from Mobile, to Houston, Mexico, Bakersfield, San Francisco, and Nebraska, and much of the cadence, imagery, and allegoric metaphor in the poem are reflected in many of Dylan's own lyrics. Take the opening line of the poem, for example: ""Shadows across the red clay moon."" Compare to Dylan's opening line in It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding): ""Darkness at the break of noon."" On the expectingrain.com website (the Bob Dylan's Who's Who), it is also noted that ""Ed frequently disappeared to Greenwich Village where he befriended a young Bob Dylan. Lines of Ed's poetry influenced some of Dylan's songs. An example was the 4th line in the 4th stanza of the singer's famous ""A Hard Rain's-A-Gonna Fall,"" saying ""I met a white man who walked a black dog."" Indeed, Dylan explicitly mentioned Ed Freeman in a long poem on the back cover of one of his early albums. Meeting backstage with Toby [Berger] at a concert in Cambridge in the late 1960's, Dylan remembered Ed fondly. There are no locations for Ed Freeman at all in OCLC and information on him on the internet is almost non-existant."
