        The Birthday Party

      Encore Publishing, 1959. 1st edition. Softcover as issued. A card signed by Pinter is laid into this copy. Pinter's second play, produced at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith in 1958, immediately commanded attention, despite its initial critical reviews. Issued in softcovers, it is a fragile item, but this particular copy is in very good condition indeed, showing only light wear at the stapled spine and corners and a few almost imperceptible scratches on the surface. The original cast list is printed on the inside front cover. A near fine, unique example, with the separate signature of the author, who eventually won the Nobel Prize for Literature.

        Lettre autographe signee a Pierre Jean Jouve.

      Giens, 20. X. 1959.. 2 pp. in-4 a l'encre noire sur papier velin, enveloppe conservee.. Emouvante lettre autographe par laquelle Saint-John Perse renoue avec Pierre Jean Jouve : "Je ne romps pas sans emotion ce silence de 20 ans que j'ai laisse croitre en moi comme un mal [...] Mon cher Jouve, c'est une chose assez etrange que cette confiance si longtemps faite a votre clairvoyance, et cette certitude en moi que vous ne pouviez vous meprendre sur mon mutisme. Je n'ai connu de vous qu'elegance et generosite litteraire, et je n'ai meme pas su vous remercier de la confiance que vous vouliez bien vous-meme me garder. J'irai simplement a vous, cher ami, et serai heureux de retrouver votre regard, un jour entrevu au debut de la guerre". - On peut lire sous la plume de Jouve, dans le Cahier de l'Herne qui lui est consacre, un tres elogieux texte intitule Exil de Saint-John Perse: " ... dans un temps de dissolution, au milieu des orages et des outrages divers qui tendent a detruire la beaute, l'oeuvre de Saint-John Perse apparait un rocher".

L'ainee, Ines, prendra une place grandissante dans la vie de Picasso. Elle vivra a partir de 1942 dans un petit appartement situe sous l'atelier du peintre, rue des Grands Augustins. Elle restera a son service jusqu'en 1970 et fut, avec Jaime Sahartes, la seule personne a qui Picasso faisait une confiance totale. a l'occasion de l'expulsion de la rue des Grands Augustins en 1967, c'est elle qui se chargea de repertoirer toutes les oeuvres qui s'y trouvaient, celles de Picasso et des Grands maitres le peintre collectionnait.

        The TURBINE DRIVE BUICK. BUICK'S ALL-TIME BEST. Dealer's Backlit Showroom Display Case Complete with 33 Transparencies Displaying Interior & Exterior Design Choices and Three Upholstery Sample Catalogues.

      General Motors Corp., Buick Motor Company / William Melish Harris Association Merchandising Displays, (1959), Flint, MI / Greenwich, CT: - 33 color illustrated transparencies and three upholstery sample catalogues with a total of 61 sample fabrics (includes vinyl upholstery, faux leather, and synthetic cloth interiors in a range of colors). Includes: wooden lighted display cabinet (electrical cord to rear and switch located inside top right side of cabinet), three upholstery interior sample catalogues in three and two ring binders inside drawer (titled: Invicta & Invicta Custom Interiors; Invicta & Invicta Convertible Interiors; Electra 225 Interiors), 33 transparencies (14 displaying "Solid Color" exterior, 14 displaying "Two-Tone" exterior, 4 of interiors of the: LeSabre, Invicta, Electra/ Electra 25 & the Chassis, 1 introductory transparency) to be switched to the front (inserted down underneath front glass) in order to illustrate the different exterior & interior colors available. These high-tech lighted displays were developed by the General Motors sales office as an update of their showroom sales flip board displays used (mostly) in the 1950s. Harris Associates was a division of Plasikorp at the time, and were known for their modern and sleek merchandising displays (even patenting one for carpet stores) which used plastic, and plastic transparencies, along with sample books. Potential Buick customers could come into the dealership, and try out various color combinations for trim, car & upholstery, by overlaying the transparencies and seeing, lit up, exactly how their car would appear. Buick designers were trying to boost sagging sales for their division, so they revised the 1960 models from the 1959 which had been the most outlandish fin-heavy models yet produced. The Buick Invicta and Electra models (both featured in this display) lowered the hoods, placed the headlights side-by-side, installed a front grill with concave vertical slats with the tri-shield Buick logo floating in the center. The tailfin tips were rounded off, and they even revived the famous front fender porthole ornaments from the 1940s and 50s. Buick entirely redisgned the dash with a longer speedometer, lights for coolant temperature, generator and oil, and even installed a new a Mirromagic instrument panel mounted facing up, but reflected on a mirror that could be adjusted. One of the most significant changes was a strictly horizontal chrome strip running from rear bumper to the front wheel opening allowing Buick purchasers to make much easier decisions on two-tone paint treatments -- all of which are displayed here in the lighted case. The color combinations illustrate Turquoise, Chalet Blue, Midnight Blue, Lucerne Green, Silver Mist, Gull Grey, Cordovan, Verde Green, Tampico & Titian Red, and others. In addition there are a number of samples showing the possible convertible top materials. As dealers typically disposed of the previous years' showroom material, dealer showroom materials are quite scarce, and we can find no records of any similar surviving cabinet. Moderate wear to case (rubbing and minor scuffing to edges, light soiling). Transparencies lightly scuffed and scratched (clearly worn). Sample booklet leaves worn and warping. Overall, a VG example. Large wooden backlit display cabinet with front-facing backlit window. Blonde finish to wood, with top-doored well behind housing the thick plastic overlays. Cabinet (at largest sections): 19-5/8" (L) x 11-3/4" (W) x 16-1/4" (H). Transparencies: Oblong format 9-5/8" (+ thumb tab) x 15-1/4" Presumed to be complete but we are unable to verify. 33 clear plastic transparencies, three upholstery sample catalogues: 3 leaves (graduated thumb tabs) w/ 19 samples; 4 leaves (graduated thumb tabs) w/ 22 samples; 3 leaves (graduated thumb tabs) w/ 20 samples.

        Young man, do I look like Dennis Stafford?

      1959. Sheet size: 192 × 140 mm. Pen and black ink with blue crayon on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 9 January 1959, and with pencil reproduction instructions recto. Burglar Dennis Stafford had escaped from Wormwood Scrubs in 1956; recaptured in Trinidad in 1957 he was re-incarcerated in Dartmoor, only to escape again. Six weeks later he was arrested in Leicester Square, and this time served the remainder of his sentence. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

In part, ?Last year both matadors had the finest season of their careers, and Spain was split between ordoñistas and dominguístas. But it seemed improbable that they ever would meet because of an old family feud that persisted even after Ordóñez married Luis Miguel?s sister. In April, however, the feud was resolved, and in June a series of cartels matched the two masters. At Zaragoza, Luis Miguel cut three ears, Ordóñez one. In Barcelona the result was the same, and again at Puerto de Santa María. The luck changed at Tudela ?" Ordóñez cut four ears, Dominguín none. This brought them to Valencia

      New York: The Paris Review, 1959. New York: The Paris Review, 1959 Issue No. 20, first printing. Publishers' light blue and white pictorial paper wrappers, with an illustration of three blonde women by Tom Keogh to the front panel, lettered in black. A near fine copy, with some light wear to the extremities, minor creasing to the spine, a hint of scattered spotting and light soiling to the otherwise bright and clean panels, minor creasing to the top left corner of the rear panel and rear pages of text, slight chip to the top right corner of the front panel. Overall, a bright and attractive copy. "Goodbye, Columbus" is a novella by Philip Roth, first published serially in this issue of The Paris Review on pages 71-179 and later included in his collection of short fiction Goodbye, Columbus, published in the same year. The story presents a humorous and somewhat derisive portrait of the lives of Jewish-Americans. Like many of his works, "Goodbye, Columbus" is semi-autobiographical in nature; a first generation American born to Jewish-Galician parents and raised in Newark, New Jersey, Roth's characters are often influenced by his friends and family and his fiction, like this text, is typically set in Newark. In addition to the first printing of "Goodbye, Columbus," this volume includes "The Building" by William Butler, the "Art of Fiction XXII" interview with James Jones, 5 drawings by Marc Chagall, and 7 drawings by Jean Hélion, as well as 12 poems by various authors.. Soft Cover. Near Fine.
