Graham, Benjamin
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1959. Second Revised Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. Known as the "father of value investing" and the "Dean of Wall Street," Ben Graham (1894-1976) excelled at making money in the stock market for himself and his clients without taking big risks. Graham credited and taught many principles of investing safely and successfully that modern investors continue to use today. These ideas were built on Graham's diligent, almost surgical, financial evaluation of companies. His experiences led to simple, effective logic, upon which Graham built a successful method for investing. Graham's work is legendary in investment circles. He's been credited as the creator of the security analysis profession. While best known as Warren Buffett's mentor, Graham was also instrumental in drafting many elements of the Securities Act of 1933, also known as the "Truth in Securities Act," which, among other things, required companies to provide financial statements certified by independent accountants. Described by Buffett as "by far the best book on investing ever written," The Intelligent Investor offered more practical advice than his earlier work, Security Analysis (1934), which also counsels the stock market participant to first draw a fundamental distinction between investment and speculation. Now in its fourth edition, it remains one of the best-selling and most widely read investment books of all time. Octavo. Original mauve cloth-covered boards over a black cloth spine, with gilt titles. Some light staining to the top edge. The dust jacket is a touch edgew … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Dienst brothers were interested in the Beat Generation, concrete poetry, and the cut-up technique. Klaus-Peter knew Brion Gysin and would have been aware of the cut-up soon after its rediscovery. The Dienst brothers then discovered Burroughs through Gysin. In turn, Rhinozeros helped introduce the cut-up to a small German audience. Not surprisingly, Burroughs was a major presence in the magazine, but his influence spread throughout Germany during a renaissance in that countrys poetry and literature of the 1960s.

COWARD, Noël.
London: Heinemann, 1959. Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine in silver. With the dust jacket. Spine of jacket lightly sunned, extremities slightly nicked and creased, touch of foxing to top edge. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression. The dedication copy, inscribed by Coward to Vivien Leigh on the front free endpaper: "Kindly see Dedication and oblige", and further inscribed by him below the printed dedication ("For Vivien with my love as always") "So there!" Loosely inserted is a Christmas card from Coward to Leigh (inscribed in red ink "Darling Dear love Dear Noely"), bearing the unforgettable "winged" image of Coward taken by Horst Tappe at Les Avants, Switzerland, in 1963 and carrying the witty seasonal greeting "Heureux Noël". Coward's play, based on Feydeau's farce, premiered in 1959 on Broadway and opened in July of that year in London at the Royal Court, with Vivien Leigh in the lead role, before transferring to the West End (New Theatre, now the Noël Coward Theatre). A superb association copy, dating to a difficult period in Leigh's life when Laurence Olivier had asked her for a legal separation and she turned to Coward for solace. "She felt she owed Noël her confidence in this matter. When the run [of Look After Lulu] ended, Noël was to take Vivien to Les Avants for Christmas and keep the 'charming newspaper' men and women at a friendly but firm arm's length" (Barry Day, ed., The Letters of Noël Coward, 2007, p. 650).
