        Doktor Zhivago. (Doctor Zhivago). Authorised edition in Russian.

      Milano Milan:: Feltrinelli Editore. Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket. 1959. First Edition. Hardcover. Publication April or May 1959. Original pale green paper-covered boards, lettered in black with publisher's mark in black to spine, echoed on dust-wrapper. 'Prima edizione in lingua italiana:novembre 1957 ... ' to half-title verso. Ampelio Tettamanti illustrated dust-wrapper (c.f. Feltrinelli 1957 Italian edition). Price of 42s. net. to front flap. Contents list numbered p.567 (see Mancosu 165). Book in very good condition. Fragile dust-wrapper very neatly reinforced inside edges and folds. Usual browning of paper-edges and off-setting to endpapers. Inscribed "To Nina with much love Wanda, 1959". ; Significant publication. First published in this form at the end of April 1959 or beginning of May. The hand-written date on the f.e.p. may even refer to the publication date. It seems to be in an 'English' hand. Much has been written on the early editions of Dr Zhivago, see Mancosu: "Inside the Zhivago Storm", 2013. The accuracy of the text caused much dispute as well as the legalities of publication. Although Feltrinelli had signed a contract with Pasternak to be the first to publish the Russian edition (after the Italian translation in 1957), there exists both an unauthorised earlier Mouton edition published The Hague, 1958, and a 1959 'Michigan' edition published only after a wrangle with Feltrinelli. Even after Feltrinelli's eventual publication in April or May 1959 many questions arose regarding the accuracy of the text. ; 567pp pages .

      np: Aux Éditions du Seuil, 1959. First edition. Oblong 4to, 140 pp, bound in laminated, photographically illustrated boards; no dust jacket as issued. Illustrated with numerous photogravures. Text in French. Cover designed by Pierre Fauxcheux. The first edition of this early work by Marker, and one of the greatest photobooks of the 1950's. The book is an accumulation of photographs Marker took on a trip to North Korea, interspersed with old engravings, found images, and images appropriated from pop culture. The seamless way in which Marker moves among different types of media in the book have a distinct kinship with the travel guides Marker edited for the same publisher during this era, as well as his film La Jetée, which would come out three years after the present work. A clean, relatively bright copy showing only light age toning and some minor bumping to the edge of the text block. There is a slight sag to the text block, as usual, and some very slight overopening between the first and second signatures and the last two signatures, but the binding remains sound. The book is notorious for the fragility of the binding - the weight of the coated paper stretched the abilities of the binders at du Seuil - and intact copies such as this are scarce.

        12/20 aluguß EISENBAHN

      GÜNTER ANLAUF Nr.12 von 20 Stk. Auflage Aluguß nach einem in Granit gehauenen Motiv: EISENBAHN Größe(ca): 45 x 16 cm Rückseitig mit Aufhängvorrichtung Grösse: 45 x 17 cm ----------------------------------------------------------------- Die zinke in Berlin-Kreuzberg, Oranienstraße war eine Galerie. Sie wurde von dem Schriftsteller und Maler Robert Wolfgang Schnell, dem Lyriker und Holzschneider Günter Bruno Fuchs, dem Maler Sigurd Kuschnerus und dem Bildhauer Günter Anlauf im Jahr 1959 gegründet. Der Name war dem Rotwelsch entnommen und bedeutet unter Landstreichern eine Markierung an Häusern in dem Sinn: Hier wohnen freundliche Leute, die ein bisschen Geld oder Essen geben. Die zinke entwickelte sich rasch zu einem Treffpunkt der Bohème mit Ausstellungen und Lesungen und sorgte maßgeblich dafür, dass sich das alte Arbeiter- und Kleinbürgerviertel Kreuzberg nach und nach zu einem Ort der Kunst im alten West-Berlin veränderte. Die Künstler waren allerdings schlechte Geschäftsleute und sprachen zu sehr dem Alkohol zu, sodass die Galerie bereits nach 3 Jahren schließen musste. Aber der Grundstein war gelegt und der aus einer Trödelhandlung hervorgegangene Leierkasten (Kneipengalerie) von Kurt Mühlenhaupt machte mit den weitgehend identischen Leuten weiter. Dazu kam noch die Galerie am Abend und die Werkstatt Rixdorfer Drucke von Johannes Vennekamp und anderen. Aus diesem Kreis bildeten sich etwas später auch die Berliner Malerpoeten um Aldona Gustas, Günter Grass, Kurt Mühlenhaupt und Günter Bruno Fuchs heraus.

        Advise and Consent: A Novel of Washington Politics.

      New York: Doubleday & Company, 1959. First edition of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Senator Clark with best regards Allen Drury." The recipient Joseph S. Clark, Jr. was an American lawyer and politician. A member of the Democratic Party, he served as a United States Senator from Pennsylvania from 1957 to 1969. He previously served as the 116th Mayor of Philadelphia from 1952 to 1956. While in the Senate, Clark earned a reputation as a strong supporter of civil rights and congressional reform. He sponsored the Manpower Development and Training Act and the Area Redevelopment Act. An excellent example with some toning and rubbing in a very good first issue dust jacket with the $5.75 price and Doubleday imprint on the spine. A very nice association, uncommon in the first edition and signed. The Saturday Review said of Advise and Consent in August 1959 that "It may be a long time before a better one comes along." Roger Kaplan of Policy Review wrote in 1999 that the novel "in many ways invented a genre in fiction. The use of a racy intrigue, if possible involving both sex and foreign policy, is what characterizes the contemporary form. Forty years on, Advise and Consent is the only book of this genre that a literary-minded person really ought to read." The novel was adapted into the 1962 film Advise and Consent, directed by Otto Preminger and starring Walter Pidgeon and Henry Fonda.

In-8 oblong (14 x 19,7 cm) en feuilles sous couverture illustrée et boîte-étui de l'éditeur en soie verte ornée d'un bois gravé en noir par Joan Miro, un des 20 exemplaires numérotés en chiffres romains (ici le n° XVIII) pour une édition limitée à 170 exemplaires tous imprimés sur vélin pur chiffon du Moulin d'Ambert et signés par Char et Miro. Cette édition en partie originale comprend neuf poèmes inédits (quatre des poèmes constituant le recueil ont été publiés l'année précédente par Pierre André Benoit avec une gravure de Miro, sous le même titre), et 5 eaux-fortes et aquatintes originales en couleurs de Miro. Ce n'est qu'à la fin des années 1940 que les deux amis René Char et Joan Miro ont collaboré pour la première fois, à l'initiative des Zervos : Miro était alors le premier des nombreux amis artistes de Char à enluminer l'un de ses manuscrits, et se montra très vite admiratif du poète et de son oeuvre, devenant ainsi le peintre ayant le plus collaboré à ses poèmes, puisqu'il illustra plus d'une dizaine de livres de Char en presque trente ans, de 'Fête des arbres et du chasseur' en 1948 au 'Marteau sans maître' en 1976. Char lui-même célébra Miro dans plusieurs de ses poèmes ; superbe exemplaire en parfait état.

        A Visit To Morin.

      London: Heinemann,, 1959. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, green silk page marker. Spine slightly sunned, corners a touch bumped. An excellent copy. First edition, only impression, one of 250 copies only. Presentation copy, inscribed by Greene on the front free endpaper: "For Yvonne & Jacques Cloetta with every good wish for Christmas 1960, from Graham Greene." Yvonne Cloetta (1923?2001), whom Greene first met in 1959, would become one of the author's closest companion for the last thirty years of his life. Greene "moved to Antibes in the 1960s partly because he wanted to be near her home in Juan les Pins. Though she never left her husband, Jacques, she was almost always at Greene's side when he was in Antibes, and would usually spend holidays with him on Capri. He had a comfortable life with Mme Cloetta, who made few demands on him, and he was reasonably content in Antibes, where the local people left him alone and the authorities treated him with respect? [When] Greene finally left France in 1990 [he] spent the last year of his life at the village of Corseaux, outside Vevey, Switzerland, sharing an apartment with Mme Cloetta" (ODNB).
