      Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1960. First edition, fourth impression, as stated on the copyright page. Octavo, 296 pages. The book is tight and sound and has the following faults and characteristics: The endpapers, half-title and edges show some foxing and browning. The book is bound in half brown paper with a mint-green cloth spine, with the spine titling in brown. The tips of the spine, where not protected by the dustjacket, are very lightly faded. The dustjacket shows considerable rubbing, a short tear and a line of waterstaining at the top of the rear panel, as well as small chips and wear at the spine ends. At the time of the fourth printing, the Pulitzer prize sticker on later impressions had not yet been applied. The original price of $3.95 is present, as is the "fourth printing" notation next to it. Finally, the reverse of the dustjacket shows considerable browning, particularly at the folds. See the additional photographs, which are of this book.

        To Kill a Mockingbird

      Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Company, 1960 Later printing in a seventh printing dust jacket. Publisher's teal boards and pale green cloth, lettered in teal; pictorial black and maroon dust jacket, with a tree illustration to the front panel, lettered in green, black and white. Near fine, with some faint toning to the spine, a hint of wear to the extremities, else bright and fresh; price-clipped dust jacket, with a touch of light rubbing to the extremities, a few minor nicks to the spine ends, bright spine, clean panels. A lovely copy. To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic Southern Gothic novel that tells the story of protagonist Scout Finch, who is coming of age in the fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama, during the Great Depression. Along with her brother Jem, Scout watches as her father Atticus defends an African-American man who has been falsely accused of raping a white woman during the height of Jim Crow Era racial inequality. Despite its controversial and emotional themes, To Kill a Mockingbird is beloved as a warm and entertaining bildungsroman; Harper Lee loosely based the plot on an event she witnessed as a child in her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama and many of the characters were inspired by her friends, family and neighbors, infusing the novel with the author's sentimental memories of her childhood in the American South. To Kill a Mockingbird was adapted into a film of the same name in 1962 starring Gregory Peck and Mary Badham.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Memorias De La Sierra Maestra (Signed)

      Editorial Tierra Nueva, Habana 1960 - 32mo, green and red pictorial wraps with a silhouette of a palm tree. 172 pp. Signed by the author on the title page: "Saludos de JosàPardo Llada". Patronato del Libro Popular. Primera Serie, Volumen I. An eyewitness account of the guerrilla war waged in the Sierra Maestra with the revolutionary forces before the taking of Havana. Pardo Llada was a radio announcer -- at one time the most popular announcer in Cuba -- in the 1940s who was critical of Grau's government. In 1950, he was elected to the House of Representatives and over the next several years formed a deep personal friendship with Fidel Castro, who would visit his home nearly daily (and once drove Pardo Llada's wife to the hospital to deliver a child). When Batista took power in 1952, Pardo Llada was suspended from broadcasting 42 times and was imprisoned on a number of occasions. In 1958, he joined the revolutionary forces in Sierra Maestra and fought alongside Castro, Che Guevara, Camillo Cienfuegos and others. However Pardo Llada quickly went from ardent supporter (he waived his copyright and donated all proceeds from the publication of this book to the agrarian reform efforts) to a disillusioned exile: in 1961 he grew disappointed with the communist leanings of the government and defected to Columbia while Castro denounced him as a traitor, declaring in a speech that he was the sort of man who couldn't see past the end of his nose and would be mistaken his entire life until he eventually committed suicide via sleeping pills. Pardo Llada died in 2009 at the age of 86 (of natural causes). Front wrap nearly completely detached, previous owner's signatures on front wrap and ffep, wraps heavily soiled and foxed, also heavy foxing to endpapers and final pages of text. Scarce.

      Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine 1960 - Vintage original 14 x 22" (35 x 56 cm.) window card poster, USA. Lon Chaney, Jr. -- son of the famous silent "Man of a Thousand Faces" -- inherited from his father a love for character acting (particularly in the realm of horror characters) as well as a great knowledge of make-up technique. Though his father did not encourage him to go into the business -- and, indeed, he first pursued careers in other fields -- show biz was in his blood. His most famous role was as simple-minded Lennie, the John Steinbeck character in OF MICE AND MEN (1939), but he is also the only actor ever to play four of the most popular classic movie monsters -- the Wolf Man in THE WOLF MAN (1941); Kharis the mummy in THE MUMMY'S TOMB (1942); the Frankenstein monster in GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN (1942); and Count Alucard (Dracula's son) in SON OF DRACULA (1943). After years of supporting roles, Universal promoted him to lead status in the early-1940s, trading on his famous name to use in their highly-profitable monster series. The fame from this afforded him a career throughout the 50s and 60s in Westerns and lower budget horror films. His backlog of films was released to television in 1958, and from there he had a consistent career in television through 1969, though hampered by alcoholism. "Famous Monsters of Filmland" magazine often focused on him, and because of this he was called upon to do personal appearances to talk about his film work. This window card is from one of those appearances. The later images on this poster appear to be from the late-1950s, such as his character of Chingachgook in the TV series HAWKEYE AND THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS, so this piece is likely vintage 1960. There is slight handling wear at upper corners to an otherwise unused, perfect poster, FINE.

Octavo, original cloth, original dust jackets. $4800.First trade editions of all four novels in Updike's critically acclaimed series, each volume inscribed by Updike and one volume additionally signed by him.John Updike's Rabbit tetraology of four novels chronicles the life of ex-basketball player Rabbit Angstrom—a choice that ""was inspired, one of those happy, instinctive accidents that so often shape a literary career"" (Books of the Century, 450). The Washington Post hailed this first in the series as ""brilliant and poignant."" Updike's hero ""is compelled by sex, for him a transcendence of death as well as the only real satisfaction provided by a banal existence"" (Vinson, 1399). Updike's much anticipated sequel Rabbit Redux was additionally hailed as ""a superb performance, all grace and dazzleÂ… a brilliant portrait of middle America"" (Life), and ""a great achievement, by far the most audacious and successful book Updike has written"" (New York Times Book Review). Writer John Cheever affirmed subsequent praise of Updike's Rabbit is Rich, third in the series, calling it ""superb—the most important American novel I've read in years."" The fourth and final novel Rabbit at Rest won Updike the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and was again seen as ""a rich and rewarding novelÂ… Updike is working at the full height of his powers"" (New York Times). First edition of Rabbit, Run, with first trade editions of Rabbit Redux, Rabbit is Rich and Rabbit at Rest—each preceded by a signed limited edition issued the same year. Rabbit, Run is inscribed, ""for Pat Magarick, Best wishes, John Updike."" Rabbit Redux is inscribed, ""for Linda Davis, Best wishes, John Updike"" and is additionally signed by Updike upside-down on the rear free endpaper. Rabbit Is Rich is inscribed on the title page, ""for Steve Adorno, Best wishes, John Updike."" Rabbit at Rest is inscribed, ""for Millie & Julius, Best wishes, John Updike.""Interiors fine.

        The Strategy of Conflict.

      Harvard University Press, Cambridge, MA 1960 - First edition of this work that pioneered the study of bargaining and strategic behavior. Octavo, original yellow cloth. Inscribed by Thomas Schelling on the title page. Near fine in a very good dust jacket that has some chipping and wear to the extremities. Rare in the original dust jacket and inscribed. "Against the backdrop of the nuclear arms race in the late 1950s, Thomas Schelling's book The Strategy of Conflict set forth his vision of game theory as a unifying framework for the social sciences. Schelling showed that a party can strengthen its position by overtly worsening its own options, that the capability to retaliate can be more useful than the ability to resist an attack, and that uncertain retaliation is more credible and more efficient than certain retaliation. These insights have proven to be of great relevance for conflict resolution and efforts to avoid war. Schelling's work prompted new developments in game theory and accelerated its use and application throughout the social sciences. Notably, his analysis of strategic commitments has explained a wide range of phenomena, from the competitive strategies of firms to the delegation of political decision power" (The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences). Chosen as one of the hundred books most influential since the War by the Times Literary Supplement. In 2005, Schelling shared the Nobel Prize in Economics for "having enhanced our understanding of conflict and cooperation through game-theory analysis."

"William this his latest work has thrown away all traces of a polite regard for the sacred cows of narrative fiction...Pieces of his earlier writing, magazine and newspaper articles, headlines and catch-phrases of the day are cut up, scrambled and thrown at the reader, or rather, sprayed at him in the same way a machinegun sprays its target.

Light blue boxBlue leatherette box (4 1/2 x 18 x 6 1/2") with gilt lettering on cover, imitation leather handle, draw bolt latches and 1448 Color Tone Cards (3 x 5") with 116pp. spiral-bound guide with white lettering on cover warps, and Light Reflectance Guide housed in compartment of box. The book, 1992 revised edition by Eric Lutz, contains an introduction, abstracts on color terms, hue designation, color groupings, color harmonies, pigments, color names and a 24-hue color circle on card stock and an index of color names at rear. "The instructive chapters have been condensed and simplified, and the color information has been reformatted. Hue paint and to the advent of computerized color matching, mixing formulas for the colors in the Plochere Color System have also been eliminated? While the actual colors in the system have not been changed in any way, slight adjustments have been made to the hue designations, to the positioning of the hues on the color circle, and to the resultant color harmonies. The current color circle is no longer based directly on the Ostwald circle. While it retains some of the characteristics of the Ostwald arrangement (for example, a higher proportion of greens), it corresponds more closely with the conventional tripartite arrangement of yellow, magenta, and cyan." The 1448 Color Tone Cards in leatherette box are compartmentalized by dividers with printed numbers 1-1248 and G1-200 for additional 200 grays. All color cards with stamped numbers on verso.

        Collection of Sexology Magazine Original Artwork

      (New York: Sexology Corp, circa 1960s). (New York: Sexology Corp,, circa 1960s). Production artwork shows usual signs of use, including pen notations, tape marks, etc; most photographs still glued on board, but a few loose; glassine overlays in various conditions, many showing significant tears. Overall, compelling and scarce collection of original artwork.. Collection of 18 unique black and white photographs used for the production of the long running magazine "Sexology". Most of the photographs are 8 x 10 inches or slightly smaller; some are collaged from multiple photos. All are mounted to stiff board and also have various production notations, apparently for publication; some also have glassine covers with further cropping marks. Most of the boards are stamped to the verso "Sexology"; some are additionally dated, with years ranging from 1964-1968. Sexology was a long-running magazine (1933-1983) published by science fiction pioneer Hugo Gernsback. Using the "Popular Science" approach, Sexology presented often lurid and pulpy prose under the guise of sociology and medical science. The 1960s issues are particularly admired today for their low budget but strikingly mod and psychedelic art direction, as amply demonstrated in this collection.

The thick covers are good, but there is a slight bump near the head of the spine that also shows slightly on back board. Hinges and gutters are solid, very little shadowing or foxing of the endpapers. No ownership or other markings. Numerous full color illustration plates throughout, fold out diagrams at the end of the text. Unclipped DJ has edge wear and some chipping at the head and foot of the spine. This has been placed in a protective cover. The light grey card stock slipcase has darkened edges, wear and chipping. It has done a good job protecting the book. Due to the large size and weight of this book, it will need additional shipping. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Poems by John Ashbery. Prints by Joan Mitchell [with:] Permanently by Kenneth Koch. Prints by Alfred Leslie [with:] Odes by Frank O'Hara. Prints by Michael Goldberg [with:] Salute by James Schuyler. Prints by Grace Hartigan

      First edition. One of 200 numbered copies signed by the authors and the artists from a total edition of 225 (the 25 contributors' copies were not signed). Each volume includes five original color prints on ivory wove handmade Hahnemühle paper made directly on the screens by the individual artists. "Abstract expressionist artists . . . were not particularly involved with printmaking or encouraged to create artists' books. . . . Another significant and undervalued exception . . . are four oversize books by the New York School of poets, each paired with large, colorful screen-prints by four second-generation abstract expressionist artists. . . . Each bound volume in the untitled boxed set contains five screen-prints, including the title page and covers. This is Hartigan's only book illustrated with original prints." "These four volumes - The Poems, Permanently, Salute, and Odes - were a collaboration between four leading artists of the second-generation of abstract expressionist painters and four of their poet friends of the New York School. The screen print medium that was chosen was the perfect vehicle to convey painterly gesture and saturated color. Along with 21 Etchings and Poems (1960) published by the Morris Gallery, N.Y., these four volumes published by the Tiber Press were the only distinguished artists' books containing abstract expressionist works created during the 1950s." - Robert Flynn Johnson, Artists' Books in the Modern Era 1870-2000. The Reva and David Logan Collection of Illustrated Books. (London): Thames & Hudson, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, (2001), pp. 43, 226-227; item 142. Jerry Kelly, Riva Castleman, and Anne H.
