Photographer Fred McDarrah's copy, with his ownership stamp. (McDarrah worked at the Village Voice for several decades and photographed nearly every important cultural event in New York during the 60s-80s; he was particularly known for his images of Beat personalities, especially Jack Kerouac.) The ultimate photographic travelogue, and one of the two or three most important American photobooks of the century. (Parr / Badger, v1, 247; Roth 150-151; Open Book 176-177; Auer 375).

        THE BUTTERFLY TREE

      Philadelphia: Lippincott, (1959). First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/very good. 8vo. Original quarter orange cloth over black cloth boards. Very good in like jacket. Mild shelf-wear and sunning to extremities. Slight lean. In very good DJ designed by Andy Warhol. Some toning and sunning to spine. Mild wear to edg- es. A faint spot or two of soil. SIGNED by Warhol in full to front panel of the jacket. Scarce example of Warhol's early com- mercial book design. A poignant novel set in Alabama and based heavily on Bell's own experiences. Though well re- viewed at the time of publication, THE BUTTERFLY TREE sold poorly. Nevertheless, The University of Alabama republished it in 1991 and the book is now recognized as a significant contribution to the lit- erature of the state. Similarly, Warhol's early graphic design is in- creasingly seen as an important and fertile period in his career, and examples of his dust-jacket work are becoming increasingly uncom- mon. And rare when signed by the artist, this being only the second we've encountered. [READING ANDY WARHOL p. 294].

        The Hustler

      NY: Harper. (1959). His uncommon first book, basis for the Paul Newman/Jackie Gleason movie that became a cultural milestone in the early Sixties. Tevis also wrote The Man Who Fell to Earth, which became a well-received movie in the 1970s, and The Color of Money, a sequel to this book that was filmed in 1984, again with Paul Newman. Slight sunning to board edges and shallow push to spine; near fine in a near fine, unfaded dust jacket with a shallow, unobtrusive repair to the crown. One of the nicest copies of this book that we have seen. Hardcover.

        THE BUTTERFLY TREE

      Philadelphia: Lippincott, (1959). First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/very good. 8vo. Original quarter orange cloth over black cloth boards. Very good in like jacket. Mild shelf-wear and sunning to extremities. Slight lean. In very good DJ designed by Andy Warhol. Some toning and sunning to spine. Mild wear to edg- es. A faint spot or two of soil. SIGNED by Warhol in full to front panel of the jacket. Scarce example of Warhol's early com- mercial book design. A poignant novel set in Alabama and based heavily on Bell's own experiences. Though well re- viewed at the time of publication, THE BUTTERFLY TREE sold poorly. Nevertheless, The University of Alabama republished it in 1991 and the book is now recognized as a significant contribution to the lit- erature of the state. Similarly, Warhol's early graphic design is in- creasingly seen as an important and fertile period in his career, and examples of his dust-jacket work are becoming increasingly uncom- mon. And rare when signed by the artist, this being only the second we've encountered. [READING ANDY WARHOL p. 294].

        Photograph signed ("C. G. Jung") and inscribed "Arcana publicata vilescunt".

      N. p., [1959]. - 225 x 185 mm. Framed and glazed. Showing him in conversation with Hugh Burnett, the plinth of a bust showing behind him, at a tea-table. - The haunting phrase "Arcana Publicata Vilescunt", which may roughly be translated as "secret knowledge when published is made profane", is to be found on the title-page of the first edition of the "Chemical Wedding" of Christian Rosenkreutz (1616), an alchemical allegory by the early Rosicrucian and later Silesian father, Johann Valentin Andreae, and edited by the aptly-named Johann Friedrich Jung. The teasing inscription on this photograph refers to the fact that it was Hugh Burnett's programme, "Face to Face", that brought Jung into contact with a mass audience for the first time. One of the viewers of the programme, Wolfgang Foges, contacted Burnett's interviewer, John Freeman, and asked him to contact Jung to sound him out about the possibility of writing a book explaining his views for the intelligent general reader rather than the specialist. Freeman conducted two interviews to this end with Jung, but was met with a firm but polite refusal. Jung then had a dream in which he was speaking in a public forum to 'a multitude of people who were listening to him with wrapt attention and understanding what he said'. When asked by Foges if he would reconsider, Jung agreed, on the condition that it consisted not just of his own writings but included essays by his closest followers, and was to be edited by Freeman. The result, which was to appear after Jung's death, was "Man and His Symbols", 1964 (cf. Deirdre Bair, Jung: A Biography [2004], pp. 619-620). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Arabian Sands

      London: Longmans, 1959. First edition. 46 plates, 8 maps to the text & folding map in pocket. xvi, 326 pp. 8vo. Fine original cloth, spine gilt, in very good dj, headcap chipped, some minor shelfwear. First edition. 46 plates, 8 maps to the text & folding map in pocket. xvi, 326 pp. 8vo. "I went to Southern Arabia only just in time." Rare signed copy in the dustjacket. Arabian Sands is Thesiger's first and most important work, recounting his crossing of the Empty Quarter under the aegis of the Middle East Anti-Locust Unit in 1946-7. Although brief reports of the journey were published in the Journal of the Royal Geographical Society in the late 1940s, it was only through the efforts of his friend Graham Watson and the publisher Mark Longman that Thesiger was persuaded to write a book-length account.For a decade, Thesiger had longed to explore the Empty Quarter and seized the opportunity presented by Owen Bevan Lean to accompany the Anti-Locust unit. Thesiger crossed the empty quarter twice: first in 1946-7, on a 2000 mile journey that began and ended at Salala on the south coast. He set again almost immediately in 1947, departing Manwakh well in Yemen and visited at Liwa Oasis and then to Abu Dhabi town. This included a brief imprisonment in Saudi Arabia. Arabian Sands includes accounts of both these crossings and is illustrated with Thesiger's own dramatic photographs.Thesiger, who had a revulsion to modern life, immersed himself in the country, made friends with the Arabs and travelled on foot and by camel. He states boldly in the introduction to this work, whatever their results "[future explorers] will never know the spirit of the land nor the greatness of the Arabs." Arabian Sands was received enthusiastically in the press and Thesiger himself thought it "his finest book" (ODNB). The Daily Telegraph stated: "Following worthily in the tradition of Burton, Lawrence, Philby and Thomas, [Arabian Sands] is, very likely, the book about Arabia to end all books about Arabia." Indeed, St John Philby described Thesiger as "probably the greatest of all explorers" (Maitland, 380) and Sir John Glubb regarded him "the last, and certainly one of the greatest, of the British travellers among the Arabs" (ibid.).
