        Grivas: Portrait of a Terrorist [Signed by Dudley Barker, Signed by George Seferis]

      London: The Cresset Press, 1959. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing (some curving to the boards, spot of sunning where the top of the spine and the front board meet - matching to the dust jacket's wear, jacket offsetting to the free endpapers), in a Very Good dust jacket (spine mildly darkened, minor edge wear with a touch of loss where the spine head meets the top of the front panel, small tape repairs to the spine head and three flap turn ends, modest handling soil to white rear panel, toning to the flap edges), SIGNED BY DUDLEY BARKER on the title page, and SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS on the front free endpaper with a contemporary 1959 date under which he has written "Waste Land", an apparent reference to T. S. Eliot's poem of the same name ("The Waste Land", 1922, for which Eliot always insisted the "The" be used) of which Seferis was quite fond, and presumably a comparison of the Poem to the events in his native Greece described in this book. The Cypriot Revolution against British occupation of Cyprus was a chaotic period during which many Cypriots sought the incorporation of Cyprus into Greece and which, in 1955, gave birth to the violent pro-Enosis movement known as the EOKA whose military wing, led by George Grivas, sabotaged military installations, ambushed military convoys and patrols, and assassinated British soldiers and local informers. Grivas, a fanatical leader, expected to die during the campaign and, instead, became a hero. George Seferis first visited Cyprus in 1963 and immediately fell in love with the island. As an important Greek Diplomat who ultimately became Ambassador to the UK, Seferis spent much time and effort seeking a resolution of the Cyprus question, investing a great deal of effort and allowing his personal views to intrude on his diplomatic efforts. Also one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, Seferis won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture", making him the first Greek ever to have received the Prize. Copies of the book signed by Barker are quite scarce, and, other than on our shelves, books signed by George Seferis, Greece's first Noble Laureate in Literature, are quite scarce as well. Copies of this book, recounting the tumultuous Cypriot Revolution against British occupation, signed both by Barker and by the Nobel Laureate fascinated by Cyprus, are RARE.

        Goodbye, Columbus and Five Short Stories

      Houghton Mifflin, 1959. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. Stated first printing. Flat SIGNED by Philip Roth on a bookplate affixed to the front endpaper. The volume is bumped at the spine ends and corners and has an erasure mark on the front endpaper. The dust wrapper is the first issue with slightly offset black printing on the front panel and the publilshers name a scant 5/32" above the bottom edge of the spine, which is a problem because the spine tail is chipped a little more than 1/8" almost oblilterating the name. The unclipped (price of $3.75 is present) dust jacket is chipped at the corners, has some wear and abrasions on the folds, a few short closed tears, and , in addition to the problem at the spine base, has a jagged 1" x 1/2" chip on the spine crown which cuts into the letter "G". The jacket, now protected in mylar, is also lightly sunned on the spine.

      Prague, Czech Republic: Statni Nakladatelstvi Krasne Literatury Hudby A Umeni, 1959. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Prague, Czech Republic: Statni Nakladatelstvi Krasne Literatury Hudby A Umeni, 1959. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 295 pages. Collection of panoramic photographs on subject. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. There is no ISBN. The book is now rare. A stupendous production by Josef Sudek: Oversize-volume format in very wide oblong shape. Cream linen cloth boards with black design and titles on cover and embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Josef Sudek. Poem by Jaroslav Seifert, the great Nobel Prize-winning Czech writer. Printed in gravure on thick uncoated stock paper in Prague to the very highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents the Czech photographer&#39;s single most stunning collection. Universally recognized as among the greatest photographers, Josef Sudek remained in his native Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic) throughout his long, productive career, spiriting out prints of his work, many of them just single copies, to friends like Anna Farova, so that his work will be in caring hands and not be forgotten. A reclusive man who shunned publicity, lived modestly, and remained loyal to his beloved country through thick and thin, Sudek&#39;s inner life was clearly the inexhaustible source of his work. Sudek spent a considerable portion of his time photographing the spectacular beauty of his country. He was not, however, a "landscape photographer" as say, Ansel Adams was. In the strict objective sense, no artist is, "The New Topographics" Movement notwithstanding. Nature was invented/created not by nature but by Man. Sudek&#39;s panoramic photographs of Prague&#39;s streets and scenery are images that take in what he saw, in all their breadth and beauty. As Petr Tausk points out, they are moving because they come from within, profound self-expression as well as self-transcendence, the artist and his homeland become one. It is also why the work of a great photographer like Josef Koudelka is both an homage to and a further expansion of Sudek&#39;s visionary achievement. It is easy to be sentimental about Sudek&#39;s work because of the difficult historical circumstances in which they were made. Still, the pictures will always speak for themselves to anyone who listens. One of the high points of modern photography, this is a "must-have" title for Josef Sudek collectors. <b><i> This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online and is in fine condition: Every internal page is clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Unlike almost all other copies available online, the cloth boards are in especially fine condition, with no bumps, soiling, or stains. The binding is secure, not shaken, loose, or falling apart. All things considered, the DJ on this copy is the best we have ever seen. By comparison, the DJ of Martin Parr&#39;s copy, as shown in "The Photobook", is deeply flawed. A rare copy thus. </b></i> 284 plates. Josef Sudek&#39;s "Praha Panoramaticka" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". "Josef Sudek Fotografie" was selected as one of the "Seminal Photography Books of the 20th Century" in "The Book of 101 Books". One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOSEF SUDEK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

Nach seiner Schulzeit machte Spindel eine Ausbildung zum Gebrauchsgraphiker an der Folkwangschule in Essen. 1957 wird er Mitglied des Deutschen Künstlerbundes, und steht seit dieser Zeit in engem Kontakt zur 1957 von Heinz Mack und Otto Piene gegründeten Gruppe ZERO. Spindel wendet sich nach ungegenständlichen Arbeiten der 1950er Jahre ab 1963 alltäglichen Materialien zu. Vor allem der Schaumstoff wird zu seinem bevorzugten Ausdrucksmittel seiner oft unbetitelten Reliefs, Materialbilder und Objekte, die eine neue Ästhetik des formbaren, weichen Materials erschließen. Bildhaft auf Spanplatten fixiert oder auch verschnürt und freistehend platziert, gibt Spindel dem Material neue Form und Sprache, wobei er seine Arbeiten teils monochrom übermalt, teils die Originalfarbe des jeweiligen Schaumstoffs beibehält. Seine Arbeiten haben Bezug zu Neuen Realismus und Konzeptkunst. Bekanntere Vertreter sind u.a. Yves Klein, Spörri . Spindel ging es um die Auslotung von neuem Materials für die Kunst. Mit dem Schaumstoff hat ein sein Thema/Material gefunden. 1964 und 1971 erhielt er den Kunstpreis der Stadt Gelsenkirchen und 1972 den Konrad-von-Soest-Preis des Landschaftsverbandes Westfalen-Lippe. Spindel war von 1963 bis 1973 Mitglied und Vorsitzender der Künstlersiedlung Halfmannshof in Gelsenkirchen. (infos: Internet, u.a. wikipedia)

      Harcourt Brace and Company New York: Harcourt Brace and Company. (1959). First. First edition. Foxing confined to the endpapers (and jacket flaps), else fine in very near fine dustwrapper. Signed by the author on the title page. Probably the most popular book by the "Grand Dame of Science-Fiction" (the Cleveland-born author assumed a male name to better sell her works), a sword and sorcery epic that was the uncredited source for the less than classic but mildly amusing 1982 film The Beastmaster with Marc Singer, Tanya Roberts, and Rip Torn, and the television series it spawned. Scarce in nice condition, uncommon signed, and very seldom found with both. .
