ItÕs barely noticeable but for the small 1/8 inch gap in the centre of he colour photo on the end pages, and the slight looseness of the cover. . Aviation

Fine condition.In ?Sports Illustrated? on August 17, 1959, John Blashill wrote about Spanish bullfighters Luis Miguel Dominguín and Antonio Ordóñez. 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

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.

April 1959 und zeichnete den greisen Meister wie er, von seiner schweren Krankheit mitgenommen, im Bett liegt (Kubin starb am 20. August desselben Jahres). Bereits 1951 haben sich die beiden näher kennengelernt, bei einer gemeinsamen Ausstellung im Klagenfurter Künstlerhaus. Bei seiner letzten Reise 1956 besuchte Kubin Werner Berg auf dessen Rutarhof, "voll subtiler Aufmerksamkeit", laut Berg, seine Arbeit betrachtete "und diesen Eindruck als seinen stärksten in der Nachkriegszeit bezeichnete".

Onder passe-partout.* Tien jaar geleden dook er op de zolder van een gepensioneerde tekenleraar uit Winterswijk een bijzondere waskrijttekening op. Hij bleek gemaakt in oktober 1959 door een 15-jarige Gerrit Komrij, die toen in de vierde klas HBS van het Winterswijks Lyceum zat. In dit schooljaar werden zijn tekenkunsten driemaal op rij op zijn rapport gewaardeerd met een acht! Toen ik Komrij deze unieke tekening later eens liet zien, viel zijn mond open van verbazing. Hij kon zich nog precies herinneren waar en wanneer hij de tekening gemaakt had, maar had er bijna een halve eeuw niet meer aan gedacht.

No. 200 of 250 limitation, signed and numbered in pencil by Leonard Baskin. This was Baskin's first venture into publishing, and his jagged and stark illustrations amplify the fire and brimstone of Blake's both naive and worldweary verse that lilts at the same time it pierces and challenges. Printed on an Italian hand-made paper, this is indeed a very handsome brochure, and this copy is pristine internally, with the faint remnants of tape top and bottom on both the front and rear of the wraps the only minor blight to the special production.

Frontispiece and 46 plates, 8 maps to the text, some full-page, folding map loosely inserted. An excellent copy. First edition. This was Thesiger's first book and "and, in his opinion, his finest" (ODNB) "During the years that I was in Arabia I never thought that I would write a book about my travels … Seven years after leaving Arabia I showed some photographs I had taken to Graham Watson and he strongly urged me to write a book about the desert. This I refused to do … The following day Graham Watson came to see me again, and this time he brought Mark Longman with him. After much argument the two of them persuaded me to try to write this book. Now that I have finished it I am grateful to them, for the effort to remember every detail has brought back vividly into my mind the Bedu amongst whom I travelled, and the vast empty land across which I rode on camels for ten thousand miles" (Introduction).

Remarkably illustrated; color plates from the original rock art in the original varied earth tones (reds, browns, yellows, whites, and black), as well as some in B&W, some as photographs, and other photographs in B&W. Folio, 14½x11¼, quarter morocco and linen; plain acetate jacket. Signed by Abbe Henri Breuil at the limitation page. Unusually, apparently an out-of-series example, one of 120 copies. Of this book, 1,000 were unsigned, 30 more were to have been numbered in roman numerals, 90 more in standard arabic numerals, and 26 were to have been lettered, with all three of the latter forms signed by the Abbe Breuil. This copy is in the quarter leather and linen binding of the numbered and signed issues, and is signed by Breuil at the limitation page, though after the word "No." on that page, there is no numeral, roman or arabic, filled in by Breuil. Scan of the limitation page is available. A remarkable work of artistic beauty and rich, yet readable scholarship on the cave art found at the The Brandberg, a vast (25 km by 21 km) monadnock rising from the sparse plains and deserts of Namibia. Apparently a source of religious inspiration to aboriginal populations of the region for thousands of years, the gorges, ravines and rock faces of The Brandberg ("Fire Mountain") are filled with cave art ranging in age from several hundred to unknown thousands of years (but definitely, for many, more than 1,800 years, a point of age determination beyond which dating becomes impossible at these sites, for technical reasons). Noted French palaeoarchaelogist Abbe Henri Breuil and others spent much time tracing, cataloguing and recreating these drawings. It's a tossup whether the non-verbal or verbal experience of this volume is the greater thrill. Beautiful edition designed by Arnold Fawcus and produced by the Trianon Press; No. 3 in the Rock Paintings of Southern Africa series. Fine, flawless, pristine in a like clear acetate jacket; has the aspect of a virtually new production, though it is nearly half a century old. L45
