        Collection of 12 color slides featuring actor Steve McQueen

      N.p.: N.p., 1960. A collection of eight mounted color 35mm transparency slides and four unmounted 6cm color transparencies of Steve McQueen likely taken during the 1960s. Images include various shots of McQueen as he appeared in "Sand Pebbles" (1966), "The Cincinnati Kid" (1965), "The Magnificent Seven" (1960), "Baby the Rain Must Fall" (1965), and "Soldier in the Rain" (1963), seen holding Tuesday Weld. The collection also includes a few candid shots of McQueen, including one at the 1967 Golden Globe awards accompanied by Natalie Wood, and one in 1963 where he wears white swim trunks, amongst others. One of America's most popular and best known anti-heroes, Steve McQueen's wild, early life in many ways mimicked the gun toting, car racing rogues he would go on to play in films. After being sent to a school for troubled adolescents, having frequently been caught in juvenile street gangs, and going on to straighten out by serving in the Marines, he finally found his way into acting once his military financial aid allowed him to begin studying. This archive features work from some of his earlier films, which would win him such great acclaim that in 1972 he was the highest-grossing actor in the world. 35mm slides 2 x 2 inches. 6mm slides 2.5 x 2.5 inches. All slides Very Good plus or better.

        Memorias De La Sierra Maestra (Signed)

      Habana: Editorial Tierra Nueva, 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 José Pardo 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.

        Die Schützentaler und Schützenmedaillen der Schweiz. Die Schützenjetons der Schweiz, 2 Bände: 2 Bde [Gebundene Ausgabe] Jürg Richter (Autor)

      Battenberg Gietl, 1960. Band 1: Die Schützentaler und Schützenmedaillen der Schweiz: Dieses Buch befasst sich sowohl mit der Geschichte als auch den historischen Hintergründen der Schützentaler und Schützenmedaillen der Schweiz. Über 2100 Taler und Medaillen von den Anfängen im frühen 17. Jahrhundert bis ins Jahr 1960 sind beschrieben und weitgehend abgebildet. Über die Seltenheit und den Wert jedes einzelnen Stücks sind Angaben in zwei Erhaltungsgraden eingearbeitet. Mehrere hundert Medaillen werden in diesem Katalog zum ersten Mal abgebildet. Prägungen, die um die Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts entstanden, bis hin zu prachtvollen gestalteten Medaillen aus der Zeit des Jugendstils zählen zu den Höhepunkten dieses hochwertigen Bandes. Äußerst seltene Stücke, oftmals sogar Unikate, insbesondere aus den Anfangsjahren der Schützenfeste sind zu sehen. Gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts wurden bei bedeutenden Anlässen oftmals verschiedene Gedenkprägungen zum selben Schützenfest herausgegeben. Diese wundervoll gestalteten Zeitzeugen sind noch heute Ausdruck dieser Sportart und ihres patriotischen Gedankengutes. Mit dieser Publikation wird dem numismatisch interessierten Leser ein neues Standardwerk vorgelegt. Aber auch Kunstliebhabern und historisch Interessierten wird dieses Buch eine Fundgrube zur Geschichte der Schützentaler und Schützenmedaillen der Schweiz. Band 2: Die Schützenjetons der Schweiz: Das vorliegende Buch über die Schützenjetons der Schweiz erfasst erstmalig in dieser Form alle bis heute bekannten Prägungen seit den Anfängen im 17. Jahrhundert. Es werden weit über 700 Jetons beschrieben und abgebildet. Bewertungen in zwei Erhaltungskategorien und Angaben zur Seltenheit geben Hinweise über den Wert eines jeden Stückes. Einige Dutzend Jetons werden überhaupt zum ersten Mal abgebildet. Die Jetons, nicht immer in Metall geprägt, sondern oftmals auch auf Papier gedruckt, belegen Jahrzehnte einer äußerst aktiven Ära des Schieß- und Schützenwesens in der Schweiz. Auf Schützenfesten, aber auch bei kleineren Anlässen wurden die im Wesentlichen dem Munitionserwerb dienenden Jetons rege verwendet. Auf eine Verwendung an mehreren Schützenfesten lässt die oftmals fehlende Jahresangabe auf den Prägungen schließen. Die Mitte des 19. bis zum Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts stellt die Hochzeit der Verwendung von Jetons dar. Eine große Anzahl Jetons, inbesondere derjenigen aus Karton oder Papier, sind sehr selten. Als eigentlicher Geldersatz nur an den Schützenfesten verwendet, wurden sie damals noch nicht im großen Stil gesammelt. So verwundert es nicht weiter, dass von vielen Stücken oftmals nur noch ein bis zwei Belegexemplare die Zeit überdauert haben. Hunderte von Abbildungen, größtenteils in Farbe, sind Zeugen einer hochwertigen Prägetechnik. Stilistisch interessant und mit künstlerisch ansprechenden Motiven versehen wurden selbst diese kleinen Jetons hergestellt. Numismatikern, Sammlern von Schützenmemorabilia und historisch interessierten Lesern wird dieses neue Standardwerk zahlreiche hilfreiche Hinweise zur Geschichte der Schützenjetons liefern. Zwei Bände, nur zusammen erhältlich! Autor: Die Faszination, die von Münzen und Medaillen ausgeht, hat Jürg Richter schon seit seiner frühesten Jugend erlebt. 1985 wählte er den Beruf des Numismatikers und ist seitdem in der glücklichen Lage, Hobby und Beruf zu vereinen. Buchveröffentlichungen und Artikel in Fachzeitschriften sind Zeugen seiner großen Leidenschaft und Begeisterung für die Numismatik. Mit dem Vreneli-Preis im Jahre 2005 wurde sein publizistisches Schaffen auf eine besondere Weise geehrt. An ihm, dem Leiter der Abteilung Gold & Numismatik der USB AG, Basel, kommt man nicht vorbei, wenn man sich mit der Numismatik der Schweiz beschäftigt. Er ist Garant für hochwertige Fachliteratur, die in jedem Bücherregal stehen muss.

        Architectural Designs for All Souls College, Oxford with an Explanation of Designs for All Souls College, Oxford.

      Portfolio case in navy blue cloth over stiff boards (530x800mm) containing 6 plates (505x755mm) being prints of Hawksmoor's designs for All Soul's College, Oxford. 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. Cloister in North Court, plan and elevation (1721, engraved by M. van der Gucht). Issued with the portfolio is a booklet, "Explanation of Designs for All Souls College, Oxford by Nicholas Hawksmoor" in grey card cover with title printed in red with printed decorative border, 248x155mm, pp.8. 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.

      Librairie Gallimard, Paris 1960 - SARTRE, Jean Paul. Critique de la raison dialectique, (Critique of Dialectical Reason). Librairie Gallimard, Paris 1960 - Half-title + TP + Dedication page + [9]-755 + [727] = Table des Matieres + 1 leaf, Octavo. First Edition.Along with Being and Nothingness (1943) and Existentialism is a Humanism (1946), this is the third of Sartre’s three major philosophical works by the Nobel laureate and dominant intellectual force in the cultural life of mid-century France. A rare, unopened first printing (#55 of 85 printed on special vellum) in beautiful condition. The Critique of Dialectical Reason continued the Existential Marxism Sartre had begun, after much influence from Merleau-Ponty, in a 1957 essay, "Search for Method." Scholars dispute whether Critique is a continuation of or a departure from the existentialism Sartre offers in Being and Nothingness. Regardless, both of these major works by Sartre are necessary for a full understanding of his philosophy.CONDITION: Original paper covers. Unopened. One of 85 (#55) on special vellum paper. A near fine copy of a delicate and fragile work. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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.
