Title printed on grey card with navy blue lettering and decorative border and pasted onto the upper cover of the portfolio. A blue ribbon ties the upper and lower boards together. The prints, which are in excellent condition show: 1. General Plan (undated, engraved by M. Van der Gucht); 2. Elevation of the East Range (1717, engraved by C. DuBosc); 3. Chapel and Refectory, plan and elevation (1717, engraved by H. Hulsbergh); 4. Portico from Great Gate to Hall and Chapel, plan and elevation (1721); 5. Elevation of South Front (1721); 6.

The booklet which is sewn at the spine, is in fine condition. The blue portfolio case is in good condition but with bumping resulting in creases to the top left and bottom right. There is rubbing to the foot of the spine resulting in a slight tear. There is some weakness to the top flap attached to the lower board but the portfolio is complete and strong. In addition, and not issued with the portfolio, we are offering a poster from an Arts Council Exhibition thought to be in 1962 (although it does not say so on the poster) devoted to Hawksmoor. This was a show of models, drawings and photographs organised in conjunction with the Hawksmoor Committee's campaign for preserving Christ Church Spitalfields and St Anne's Limehouse. The poster, on brown paper, shows a stylised photographic image of the spire of Christ Church, Spitalfields. There is crease across the top of the poster, some small tears to the edges and drawing pin marks at the corners but all these would be hidden in mounting and framing. It is a rather lovely early 1960s period piece.

        Small Archive on Ex-Pat Marvin Farkas and Farkas Film Studios.

      N.p. [ca. 1960], Hong Kong - Almost undoubtedly, this small archive belonged to Marvin Farkas. It is solely concerned with his business, Farkas Film company of Hong Kong. Contemporary black leatherette binder bearing numerous letters from various companies worldwide that used his services, original contact prints of actors he employed, newspaper clippings, some original photographs of Marvin Farkas, numerous copies of his original advertising broadside for Farkas Film Company (with offices in Hong Kong, Hollywood, New York and Chicago), a multi-paged "Rental and Estimate Price List" for Farkas Film Company. Front cover detached but very good.This seems to be a testimonial binder attesting to the fine work accomplished by the Farkas Film Company. Marvin Farkas was involved with all aspects of film; full-length movies, documentaries, occupational films, equipment rental, etc. The many letters (many original, some copies) thanking him for his services are from such entities as 20th Century Films, The Barbara Stanwyck Theater, Pacific Films, Pan American World Airways, The Rank Organization, National Broadcasting Company (2, both signed by David Brinkley), Station WHDH, three signed notes from Ed Sullivan on his letterhead, Marathon TV Newsreel, National Film Board of Canada, Movietone News, UNICEF, and others. He also made a number of films for commercial release and is credited for making the first American film to be produced and shot entirely in Singapore; Wit's End (1971), directed by Joel Reed. Marvin also worked on many of the major Asia films of the day, including The World of Suzie Wong, and worked with stars ranging from Orson Wells to Clark Cable.Marvin Farkas was raised in New York. After serving with the US Navy in the Far East from 1946 to 1954, Farkas decided to make his home in Hong Kong. Arriving in Hong Kong in 1954 on the cargo ship Eastern Saga, former Broadway star Marvin took up lodgings at the Foreign Correspondent Club (FCC) as he started out building a career with only $200 and the camera which he had taken from his father New York studio. Beginning as a copy editor on Hong Kong paper the Tiger Standard, Marvin soon established himself as a budding news photographer, covering local events from the fatal Cathay Pacific crash of 1954, to the infamous Peak Tram Murder of 1955, in which Marvin nearly had a starring role. Within weeks of arriving in Hong Kong, Marvin had started the Farkas Film Company, which provided footage for the international news networks and took Marvin all around the region. His first wife Mary-Jo Kay is of Korean descent, though she was born and brought up in Shanghai. She attended the Loretto convent school and ran away from the Communists - with teachers (priests and nuns) from her school - to Portugese Macao. There she studied at the Santa Rosa Lima convent and later went to Hong Kong to work. When Marvin met her she was working as a stewardess for BOAC. As a news correspondent/cameraman Marvin covered wars in Vietnam and Cambodia; the Indo/Pakistani conflict; student uprisings in Japan and Korea; earthquakes in Bali; floods in Pakistan and was on hand for important political transitions across Asia. Late in life he published an autobiography called Eastern Saga. In 2012 Farkas published his memoirs under the title "An Eastern Saga: A Film Man's Memoir of a Lost Asia". He has also written eight novels.

      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.

        The Strategy of Conflict.

      Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 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."

        The Exterminator

      San Francisco, CA: The Auerhahn Press, 1960. First Edition. Softcover. Very Fine. "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. Almost nothing remains in a narrative context; everything is atomized and forced to exist in an agonized truce...Brion Gysin contributed the poems and calligraphs which finally "rub out the word"." (from back cover) A first edition/ first printing of the early collaboration between William S. Burroughs, foremost Beat-&-Beyond literary innovator; & artist-writer Brion Gysin, a key associate who first inspired WSB with the cut-up method.

One of approximately 1000 copies per Maynard & Miles (A4a, pgs. 21-22). This copy is inscribed & signed by WSB on the title page: "For Don Kaufmann/ (signed) William Burroughs." Donald L. Kaufmann (1927-2015) was an acclaimed, long-time professor of English at the University of Southern Florida & a devoted collector, particularly of Norman Mailer, about whom he wrote several noted studies. A top-tier, canonical WSB-Gysin rarity, with significant association & provenance. In exceptionally very fine condition with only mildest level of rubbing & scratching at front, back covers & spine; tiniest bumps at corners & edges of same; very small area of smudging at & near lower right edge of front cover; slightest vertical bend outward toward front cover at & near spine.
