"Biff Dukes--with a reference to the Smothers Brothers hit, "Tom Dooley" ; ".[T]he biggest thrill which comes to the owner of a set of these comic book jackets lies in his ability to put them on regular books and display them in rather conspicuous places in the living or recreation room before a party.High school and college students will discover these book jackets can provide them with a never-ending source of fun for fooling members of the faculty, as well as fellow students, without the danger of being expelled from the institution of learning." ; [debatable, as this cover has a racist title that would surely result in expulsion now] ; very scarce 50s-60s ephemera showing contemporary callous feeling towards the heinous crime of lynching ; shows wear, but otherwise G [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Dents de Lait, Dents de Loup.

      (Paris 1959) - Folio. 65pp. From an edition of 211 copies, this is one of fifteen copies signed by the artist, Jacques Villon, the poet, Henri Pichette, and by the editor, Pierre de Tartas; and with an extra suite of all thirteen etchings, plus duplicate extra suites of the four double-page etchings, two of which are in color. This extraordinary illustrated work shows Villon's range of style, as it includes abstract, Cubist, landscape, and floral studies. It also shows his range of technique, with areas of cross-hatching, aquatint, and color aquatint. The two-color aquatint spreads are interspersed with the text of the poems. A member of the Duchamp family, Villon left the study of law to join the Cubist movement and became particularly known for his virtuosity in color etching. The extra suites of the four double-page plates are printed on japon nacré. This copy has been bound by French master-binder Renaud Vernier in full dark brown box calf with plaquettes set into the front and rear panels that rotate on a stainless steel axis. The plaquettes are formed from two types of lacquered exotic hardwood: macassar ebony and French Guyanan wacapou. Vernier explores the double nature of the title through the revolving panel, placing "Dents de Lait" on one side with the lettering in dark ebony against the lighter wacapou wood; "Dents de Loup" is given the opposite treatment on the other side of the panel. This motif is extended to the back cover, where Villon's name appears on one side, wacapou on ebony, and Pichette's name on the other in reverse. Endleaves are done in "Sienna earth" suede. The finish work on the binding was executed by Claude Ribal, Vernier's long-time collaborator, whose initials appear on the lower rear doublure. Housed in a matching chemise and slipcase. The former apprentice of legendary binder Pierre-Lucien Martin, Vernier has been recognized by France as a living national heritage, and in 2000, he was named "Maître d'Art" -- the only binder in France to be awarded this title. A brilliant synthesis of binding and illustration, resulting in the perfect livre d'artiste. Extremely fine. (The Artist & the Book, p. 214). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Jargon Books in Association with Corinth Books, New York 1959 - Creeley, Robert. A FORM OF WOMEN. Inscribed to Allen Ginsberg. New York: Jargon Books in Association with Corinth Books, 1959. First edition. This 8vo., Stiff illustrated wrappers. Wrappers a trifle soiled, else fine. Inscribed on the title page: " For Allen / with love / Bob" Issued as Jargon 33. inscribed to Allen Ginsberg. "INTERVIEWER [Lewis MacAdams and Linda Wagner-Martin] When did you meet Ginsberg? CREELEY In 1956 - after leaving Black Mountain, it must have been in early January or so, then stopping in Albuquerque with friends to pull myself together, then going on to San Francisco where Ed Dorn and his family were. I was trying to get out of my own habits. My marriage had finally ended altogether - and I was sick of what I knew, so to speak. So anyhow I decided to go west. I got to Ed's place about four in the afternoon, and he and Helene drove me around a little. I remember we got very drunk or I at least did - and Rexroth had invited me over for dinner. I can remember vomiting all over the sidewalk, just before I went in, something like an hour or so late. Then later that same night, after Ed had taken off for a job he had as a baggage clerk at Greyhound, suddenly Allen appeared. He was working at the same place only on an earlier shift. It's so characteristic of Allen to be there like that, that is, to come so directly to what interests him. And I was God knows flattered - we talked most of the night about Olson and the scene at Black Mountain. And he told me what was happening in San Francisco. Later, I remember walking around the city with him and Phil Whalen, with Allen inevitably carrying the big black binder notebook, reading us "Howl" every time we sat down or stopped for something to eat. It was really a beautiful time - everything was so open, just poised on its own energies". - The Paris Review, Fall 1968 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Les Cahiers du Jazz. Revue Musicale. 1 - 16/17.

      Paris: Les Nouvelles Editions Musicales Modernes, 1959-64 - 17 issues in 16 volumes, octavo. Original printed card wraps. Housed in a black, leather-entry slip-case. 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. Occasional notation in the text. 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. [Attributes: First Edition]

        BASS, SAUL, Designer) ANATOMY OF A MURDER (1959)

      Columbia 1959 - Vintage original 41 x 27" (104 x 69 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. James Stewart, George C. Scott, dir: Otto Preminger; Columbia. This is one of the greatest of all of Saul Bass' movie posters, and I personally find it more perfectly laid out than his other great masterpiece, "Vertigo". It is getting increasingly difficult to find a genuinely nice example of this poster, much less one which is unbacked and entirely unrestored, as this one is. Folded, with a few scattered pinholes and some light creasing near the bottom of the poster, just ABOUT FINE.

        INVITATION TO A BEHEADING

      New York: G.P. Putnam&#39;s Sons, (1959). First American edition. Hardcover. Very good/very good. 8vo. Original quarter-cloth over boards. Very good in like jacket. Some moderate chipping to head and heal of jacket spine, with attendant rubbing to book tips. Some edgewear to DJ with several small closed tears. Unclipped. Overall, clean and sound. INSCRIBED by Dmitri Manbokov (Vladimir and Vera&#39;s son and the translator of this book) to Matthew Brucolli: "For talented, loyal, hard-working, / long-suffering Matt Bruccoli / with warm wishes / Dmitri Nabokov / Monteaux, 13 July 1986. A significant association of the first of Nabokov&#39;s Russian-language novels to be translated into English. Inscribed by the book&#39;s translator, Nabokov&#39;s son Dmitri, to bibliographer Matthew Brucolli (1931-2008). Brucolli studied English with Nabokov at Cornell and would go on to publish several books under his own imprint based on Nabokov&#39;s Ithaca lectures. The bibliographer also covered Nabokov for the DICTIONARY OF LITERARY BIOGRAPHY. In addition, Brucolli and Dmitri would go on to edit an edition of Nabokov&#39;s SELECTED LETTERS (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1989), a project they were likely in the midst of at the time of this inscription. A splendid triad of associations and a title rarely encountered inscribed, by either the author or the translator.

        NAKED LUNCH

      Grove Press (1959), New York - 8vo. Original black board with half cloth spine. Near fine in a very good plus jacket. DJ has small closed tear to rear panel. Mild edgewear. Trace rubbing. Else remarkably bright and retaining its original $6.00 flap price. Tiny bump to one corner of book. Else sharp and sound. Topstain unmarred. Very handsome overall. INSCRIBED by Burroughs to title page: "For Michael / Griffin / all the best / moments / William S. Burroughs / 3/16/91." First US edition / printing (both book and jacket) of the Beat masterpiece, which - copyright date aside - was not actually published in this edition until 1962, which also contains the first book appearances of Burroughs' "Deposition: Testimony concerning a Sickness," and "Letter from a Master Addict to Dangerous Drugs." A landmark novel, it led to several important court decisions on indecency and censorship. Certainly Burroughs' best-known work (it was successfully adapted by David Cronenberg into a fine film of the same name), it is also arguably Burroughs' best and most enduring as well. One of 3500 copies. And incidentally, there are no "states" of this jacket, contrary to some dealer's listings. There are only later printings of the jacket married to earlier editions of the book; see Shoaf 2b-i. [Maynard and Miles 2Ab]. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Fine in a near fine dust jacket with just a touch of wear to the crown. A very bright copy. Miguel Street is the Bowery, the Tenderloin, and the Catfish Row of Trinidad&#39;s Port of Spain&#150;its citizens a loony multitude whose knavery often rises from real kinship with pathos and tragedy. . . . Naipaul is at his best in these swift caricatures of human depravity" (San Francisco Chronicle).

        Les Affiches Originales des Maitres de l&#39;Ecole de Paris: Braque - Chagall - Dufy - Leger - Matisse - Miro - Picasso

      [Paris]: Andre Sauret, 1959. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/Near fine. 4to, Yellow cloth-covered boards with titles stamped in brilliant purple on the upper board and spine; gorgeous full-color dust jacket; publisher&#39;s clear acetate dust cover; pp. 15, 1-102 (single-sided plates), 239-[247] (Catalogue Descriptif), [1] (Colophon). Book is fine, jacket very nearly so (touch of rubbing at the edges), and likewise the acetate dust cover. One of the most beautiful books on lithography ever printed, and a true labor of love. Fernand Mourlot, a third-generation Parisian printer, expanded into lithography in the 1920s, and worked directly with some of the top artists of the day, including those presented here. The text was set by hand at the Imprimerie Nationale, and the reproductions lovingly crafted at Mourlot Freres. Five lithographs inserted at the rear were created by the artists during the course of work on the book. The dust jacket cover was created by Matisse in honor of the hundred-year anniversary of the press. The works here include the seminal (such as Matisse&#39;s "Jazz" poster), but also include posters produced purely as advertising; without exception, however, they are stunning works of art. The bibliographic detail in the descriptive catalogue includes the number of originals produced, etc. Truly an exceptional book.
