Fisher, Philip A
Prentice-Hall, Inc, Englewood, NJ, 1960. First edition of Fisher's second book. Octavo, original half cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free end paper, "Thank you for all your help in making this book possible, Mrs. Nel Pozo Sincerely Phil Fisher." The recipient was an assistant to the author who helped Fisher with this book. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Most desirable inscribed example of this investment classic. Paths to Wealth through Common Stocks expands upon the innovative ideas found in Fisher's highly regarded Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits—summarizing how worthwhile profits have been and will continue to be made through common stock ownership, and revealing why his method can increase profits while reducing risk. Many of the ideas found here may depart from conventional investment wisdom, but the impressive results produced by these concepts—which are still relevant in today's market environment—will quickly remind you why Philip Fisher is considered one of the greatest investment minds of our time.

Mercury Seven
Each 10 x 8 inches. NASA, early 1960s. Corner creasing to a few of the images, otherwise fine. An attractive group of large, individual color portraits signed by each of the Mercury Seven: Scott Carpenter, Gordon Cooper, John Glenn, Gus Grissom, Wally Schirra, Alan B. Shepard, and Deke Slayton. Shepard’s and Carpenter’s photographs are additionally inscribed. All are NASA publicity photographs; Schirra and Cooper are in space suites, the other five astronauts are in civilian dress. The Mercury Seven were America’s first astronauts, selected by the NASA in April 1959 (some six months after the agency was established) to pilot space craft for Project Mercury; they quickly became national icons. All seven eventually flew in space; Shepard became the first American to enter space in 1961, and Glenn the first in orbit in 1962. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

TEREBA, Stanislav and Alexander Tóth, photographers
Prague: eskoslovenský svaz t lesné výchovy a sportu, 1960. Hardcover. Near Fine. Oblong folio measuring 17" x 12". Screw-bound tan leather over stiff paper boards with gilt titled. Contains 110 black and white or color silver gelatin photographs measuring between 3.5" x 9" and 8" x 10". Slightly bowed boards thus near fine with fine photographs. Deluxe, large-format photograph album produced by the Czechoslovak Union of Physical Education as an homage to the massive Sokol coordinated gymnastics meeting held in Prague in 1960. The Sokol movement, founded in the 1860s by Miroslav Tyrš and Jind ich Fügner, became an important force for cultural unity during the Czech national revival of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, and upon the founding of Czechoslovakia, the organization played a central role in the cultural life of the new nation. Quickly co-opted and re-formed as a mass propaganda tool by the communists following the coup of 1948, the now state-directed Sokol organization staged a series of so-called "Spartakiads" every five years from 1955, designed, in theory, to celebrate the Red Army's liberation of Czechoslovakia in 1945, though the 1970 event would be canceled in the aftermath of the Prague Spring. The 1960 event, depicted here, proved to be the largest-ever of its kind, gathering more than 700,000 gymnasts and nearly 2 million spectators. All of the color photographs in this album and the majority of the black-and-white images are the work of the important Czech photojournalist Stanislav Tereba, who had risen to internat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kazantzakis, Nikos; Peter A. Bien
New York: Simon & Schuster, 1960. First American edition of this historical novel, basis for the 1988 Academy nominated film. Octavo, original half cloth. Translated from the original Greek by Peter A. Bien. Signed by the translator as follows, "Never in my life have I feared death as much as I feared that resurrection." Peter Bien Hanover, NH." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. An exceptional inscription. Hailed as a masterpiece by critics worldwide, The Last Temptation of Christ is a monumental reinterpretation of the Gospels that brilliantly fleshes out Christ's Passion. This literary rendering of the life of Jesus Christ has courted controversy since its publication by depicting a Christ far more human than the one seen in the Bible. He is a figure who is gloriously divine but earthy and human, a man like any other--subject to fear, doubt, and pain. "A searing, soaring, shocking novel: (Time).

David Klein
This Europe poster was created circa 1960 by the gifted American artist David Klein (1918 -2005) for TWA. Klein chose to depict some of the European highlights for this poster: The Roman Colosseum, a Greek column, the Eiffel tower inParis, the Big Ben inLondon, a Venetian gondola and a woman dressed in a dirndl (traditional feminine dress worn in Austria, South Tyrol, and Bavaria). TWA (Trans World Airlines) was formed in 1924 as Transcontinental & Western Air. The airline's first route was New York to Los Angeles, soon followed by multiple National routes. The airline expanded to serve Europe, the Middle East and Asia after WWII when the company was under the control of Howard Hughes, owner from 1939 until 1961. Hughes was a dominant force in expanding and promoting the routes flown by his company. The economy was vastly improving, and travels through air for business and pleasure increased too. Posters were a key element to promoting this form of travel and TWA. The airline started a decline in the 1970s that ended up in a third bankruptcy that caused their acquisition by American Airlines in 2001. The airline operated in 132 destinations worldwide and had a fleet size of 190. The artist of the poster, David Klein, was best known for his influential work in advertising. Although he produced illustrations for Broadway theatrical productions, Hollywood films, the United States Army, and numerous corporate clients, Klein is best remembered for the iconic travel images he created for Howard Hughes and Trans World Airlines (TWA) during the 1950's and 1960's.

Michel Marie POULAIN (1906 - 1991) Ecole de PARIS Superbe Ouvrage reproduisant plusieurs oeuvres de l'artiste Les reproductions de tableaux sont des photos détachables Tiré à seulement 100 exemplaires tous numérotés No 54 Illustré d'un dessin original (fait à la main par l'artiste) signée Michel-Marie POULAIN inscription manuscrite au dos du dessin : "Tilli de Paris" Bas de page non découpés Edition privée 1960 Magnifique ouvrage très très Rare (voire unique grace au dessin) !!! "Michel-Marie Poulain, né(e) en 1906 et décédé(e) en 1991, a été un(e) artiste-peintre français(e) moderne dont le style et la technique rappellent ceux de Bernard Buffet. C'était une personnalité extraordinaire qui a eu une vie très mouvementée. Né homme, il a servi comme sous-officier chez les dragons. En tant que femme, elle a été mannequin chez les grand couturiers. Ce dédoublement de la personnalité apparaît dans ses tableaux et explique les traits vigoureux mais aussi les touches proprement féminimes. La vigueur de sa peinture est tempérée, comme le font remarquer ses biographes, par une grâce féminine visible dans ses personnages. Plus tard, Michel Marie Poulain a ouvert une galerie à Cannes, pour exposer ses tableaux. ..." Source : Wikipedia Présent au Bénézit, ARTPRICE, AKOUN...

TEREBA, Stanislav and Alexander Tóth, photographers
Prague: eskoslovensk� svaz t lesn� v�chovy a sportu, 1960. Hardcover. Near Fine. Oblong folio measuring 17" x 12". Screw-bound tan leather over stiff paper boards with gilt titled. Contains 110 black and white or color silver gelatin photographs measuring between 3.5" x 9" and 8" x 10". Slightly bowed boards thus near fine with fine photographs. Deluxe, large-format photograph album produced by the Czechoslovak Union of Physical Education as an homage to the massive Sokol coordinated gymnastics meeting held in Prague in 1960. The Sokol movement, founded in the 1860s by Miroslav Tyrš and Jind ich F�gner, became an important force for cultural unity during the Czech national revival of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, and upon the founding of Czechoslovakia, the organization played a central role in the cultural life of the new nation. Quickly co-opted and re-formed as a mass propaganda tool by the communists following the coup of 1948, the now state-directed Sokol organization staged a series of so-called "Spartakiads" every five years from 1955, designed, in theory, to celebrate the Red Army's liberation of Czechoslovakia in 1945, though the 1970 event would be canceled in the aftermath of the Prague Spring. The 1960 event, depicted here, proved to be the largest-ever of its kind, gathering more than 700,000 gymnasts and nearly 2 million spectators. All of the color photographs in this album and the majority of the black-and-white images are the work of the important Czech photojournalist Stanislav Tereba, who had risen to international fame in 1958 when one of hi … [Click Below for Full Description]

(S. Paulo: Foto Milo), 1960. Softcover. Near Fine. Small square quarto measuring 7" x 9.25". 22 original gelatin silver photographs each mounted on card with a typed caption in German tipped on. Spiral bound with mylar covers, with the spiral just effecting the left margins of the images, a few of the images have detached from the card mounts but are fine and stable. While the photographer, presumably German, is nowhere identified, the images of the Zingu tribe are of superb quality. They include tribesmen hunting with bow and arrow or spears, fishing by hand, women performing tasks or posed with children or babies, dugout canoes, grass huts, and individual portraits. Undated but our guess is the 1960s. "foto milo. S. Paulo." written in tiny script on the edge of the final image. The Villas-Bôas brothers began visiting theZingu in 1947. According to Wikipedia: "Orlando (1914-2002) and his brothers Cláudio (1916-1998) and Leonardo Villas-Bôas (1918-1961) were Brazilian activists regarding indigenous peoples. In 1961 they succeeded in getting the entire upper Xingu legally protected - the first huge indigenous area in all South America, and the prototype for dozens of similar reserves all over the continent." They were nominated several times for the Nobel Peace Prize.Wonderful and authentic images and possibly unique.

Fernandel Franck Djemaa Pascal
1960. Autres temps. 16cmx24cmx1 5cm. Broché. 185 pages. Il est des vedettes disparues qui demeurent toujours parmi nous. Fernandel en fait incontestablement partie. Trente ans après sa dernière apparition à l'écran il rayonne toujours sur toutes les chaînes de télévision où la plupart de ses films ne justifient leurs rediffusions successives que par sa présence vivante - à l'instar d'un Raimu par exemple. Faits et anecdotes qui pimentent et enrobent l'histoire vraie donnent à cet ouvrage un ton particulier une profondeur affective une dimension des sentiments qui correspondent parfaitement aux Fernandel le père comme le fils. Une iconographie riche et originale des annexes proposant des témoignages inédits les grands prix attribués à Fernandel une filmographie exhaustive pour le cinéma et la télévision ainsi qu'un entretien peu connu de 1960 donnent à ce livre toutes les qualités d'un ouvrage de référence.

Sam Haskins
1960. This sale is for two very rare seminal photobooks: Milano by Giulia Pirelli Carlo Orsi and Cowboy Kate & Other Stories by Sam Haskins.

The strength and the graphic quality of the photographs in this large format (the book itself is approximately 30cm x 40cm) makes this title an all time classic photography book. Condition: In good overall condition. There are some bumps to the cover and a fractional tear to the bottom of the cloth spine covering. The pages are clean, bright and readable.

It is a lyrical tale played out by cowgirls of the old west, Haskins reinvented the genre of the nude with stunningly well-executed photographs, a cinematic approach, and a subtly engaging narrative. Often copied but rarely equaled, Haskins has an exceptional ability to photograph women with a sensitivity that has won him accolades from men and women alike. Condition: New.

Si l'on en croit montrer aujourd'hui, en face de la licence et du parler couillu, une sorte de honte ou d'hypocrisie qui nous oblige à rabaisser la cotte de nos femmes à boutonner nos braguettes, cela tient sans doute à l'anémie de notre temps. (...) Il fallait, pour transposer sur le cuivre les évocations de ces carmes inspirées par l'Aphrodite Populaire, la main d'une femme : elles sont toujours pudiques, jusque dans leurs suprêmes abandons.

This one is library of congress catalog card number 60-7847 fifteenth impression. A true 20th century classic, Pulitzer Prize winner, that has never been out of print. This copy has many faults, but still stands head and shoulders above most of the competition. Boards and spine show uniform wear and fade all around, but board corners are not bumped and no cracking to inside board hinges. Spine lean and light browning to text block. While the linen spine cover is creased and a little faded there is no splitting to the hinges or frey to top and bottom. Internally still tight and unmarked. A sound investment.

Harper Lee
very good. Nelle Harper Lee (1960) 'To Kill a Mockinbird', US first edition, first printing, published by Lippincott. Condition: a very good book without the dust jacket. There is a small and tasteful bookplate on the front pastdown. No other scribbles, no stamps. Internally clean. No foxing on the page block. The cloth has preserved well and the lettering on the spine is NOT rubbed out. Slights shelf wear including rubbed corners. Clean boards. A nice copy of the Pulitzer Prize winning seminal novel. Only 5,000 copies were printed and with the jacket copies fetch considerably more. 'To Kill a Mockingbird', Harper Lee's debut, and effectively only novel (the 2015 published 'Go Set a Watchman' is rather an earlier draft of the more polished 'Mockingbird'), won her the Pulitzer Prize, and is regarded as one of the best novels of 20th century literature. It was adapted as a motion picture in 1962 starring Gregory Peck who was immortalised with his role as Atticus which won him the Academy Award (Peck and Lee became life-long friends). The film won two more Oscars in the Screenplay and Art Direction categories. First and Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]

Harper Lee
near fine in very good dust jacket. Nelle Harper Lee (1960) 'To Kill a Mockingbird', US first edition, first printing, published by Lippincott. One of only 5,000 first edition copies printed. Winner of the prestigious Pulitzer Prize. Condition: a near fine book in a very good, original and unrestored dust jacket. The book is in lovely condition. No fading to the boards, the cloth spine has no rubbing and no wear. No foxing anywhere. Slight toning to top page block edges commensurate with age. One tasteful bookplate on front pastedown is the only flaw. The dust jacket is the original wrapper without any restorations. It is the correct first state with the following first issue points as called for: 1) no reprint indications at the bottom of the front flap. 2) Truman Capote paragraph printed in green at the top of the front flap 3) Jonathan Daniels blurb at the back flap 4) Rear panel shows Harper Lee photograph credited by Truman Capote. The dust jacket is in very good condition. It has been price clipped. Slight edge wear to spine folds and minimal rubbing. Very clean without any foxing. 5,000 copies were initially printed. Most of them went to public libraries receiving the usual stamp and readership treatment. Most of the fragile dust jackets have not survived the passage of time. Sometimes dealers supply later print dust jackets or jackets with missing flaps. Those are worthless and to be avoided. Adapted as a motion picture in 1962 starring Gregory Peck who was immortalised in his role as Atticus and won the Academy Award (Peck and Lee became life-long friends).
