        The Siege at Peking [with] jacket art

      Viking Press, New York 1959 - Reprint of the American edition. A sound, very good copy in an attractive, if moderately worn, very good copy with rubbing and short tears. Excellent account of the Boxer siege of the Western legations in Peking by Ian Fleming's older brother (both served with British Intelligence during WWII), and although not credited, almost certainly the inspiration for the film *55 Days at Peking*, which was filmed four years after. With: original, alternative jacket art by Peter Laune, who provided the finished jacket art for the American edition. Tempura painting, approximately 7.5" x 7.5", matted, and with a label on the verso for an exhibition of Laune's jacket paintings. The printed jacket displays a Boxer assault on the legation; the original, variant art displays the allied relief column lobbing shells in Peking. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mansart Builds a School

      New York: Mainstream Publishers. 1959. First. 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 25, 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 better -- 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. .

        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. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Ghost City

      Antwerp: Frederic Prokosch. 1959. First. First edition. Decorated self-wrappers with gold foil label. 12mo. Fine. One of 44 numbered copies, this copy is hand annotated by the author: "Special copy in blue woodcut paper. F.P." Additionally Inscribed by the author on the front fly. Extra foil label tipped in. In original mailing envelope hand-addressed by Prokosch. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. OCLC locates a single copy, in Texas. .

        Rango : Posse from Hell [large format pre-production TV series script / portfolio]

      [Spartan Productions, 1959], 1959, Hardback, Book Condition: Very Good, First EditionA large format publication in fair to good condition. It is spiral-bound in elaborately blind-tooled full leather. There is some wear to the top of the spiral spine. In a portfolio leather folder with imitation cowhide on the front cover. The portfolio folder is somewhat edge-worn. The pages are impressively produced on colour-illustrated stiff card, with slight dulling around the edges. Some of the introductory and credit pages have separated from the binding and have become brittle and edge-worn. Remains particularly well-preserved overall. Futher images, and additional bibliographic information available on request. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 0 pages; Pre-production or proposal portfolio for a western TV series entitled 'Rango' featuring the script for a presumed pilot episode 'Posse from Hell', with a selection of proposed storylines for future episodes. Three pages of production credits indicate that this item was published in 1959, by Spartan Productions, with Blake Edwards credited as director. Gordon Oliver is credited in the leading role of Rango. Clair Huffaker is credited as writer, indicating that the script is based on his 1958 novel, 'Posse from Hell'. This novel was eventually adapted into a Universal film in 1961 starring Audie Murphy and directed by Herbert Coleman. Also included is the album cover for the original theme music written by Hank Mancini. Unfortunately the LP is lacking. Hank (Henry) Mancini was involved in a dispute regarding the 1961 film with Universal's music director, Joseph Gershenson, who reused the music scores from This Island Earth (1955) and It Came from Outer Space (1953), rather that the original music. Therefore, it appears that Rango: Posse from Hell was the pilot for a proposed TV series that was eventually adapted into a film produced by Gordon Kay and Edward Muhl for Universal. In the film version Rango's name is changed to Banner Cole. There was also a 1967 Western/Comedy TV series called Rango. Other than the title of the main character, there does not appear to be any link to between these productions, although is is possible some elements may have been adapted. Subjects: Film -- Westerns -- TV series -- Scripts -- 1950s -- 1960s -- Television -- History -- United States. Physical description: Unpaginated. Impressively colour illustrated throughout. 38 x 54cm.

        Les Cahiers du Jazz. Revue Musicale

      Paris: Les Nouvelles Editions Musicales Modernes,, 1959-64. 1 - 16/17. 17 issues in 16 volumes, octavo. Original printed card wraps. Housed in a black, leather-entry slip-case. Occasional notation in the text. Some rubbing to the wraps, occasional toning, one or two short edge-splits in the text, and a few check-marks in the discographies, but overall a very good set. First editions of the complete run of Malson, Filipacchi and Tenot's highly influential periodical. Consciously modelled on the Cahiers du Cinema, the content was of unimpeachable seriousness, and unquestionable excellence. Contributors include Malson, Michel-Claude Jalard, Gunther Schuller, Jean Clouzet and Michel Delorme, with discographies by Jorgen Grunnet Jepsen. While condition is perhaps not ideal, this is an extremely difficult run to complete, here attractively presented.
