Bunting is referred to by a variety of nicknames including "Papa Whiskey," "Pee Wee Bill," and "Smoke Bringer."

The outfit was made up of several races and Bunting, who was white, was friendly with an Asian American soldier and an African American soldier, both photographed numerous times in this album. On the front pastedown of the album some fellow soldiers wrote messages to Bill saying goodbye and wishing him good luck. "Papa Whiskey - Good luck to you when you get back to the world. Take care of all the broads and stay out of trouble." Another reads "when the power of love overcomes the love for power then we shall have peace." One photo shows the men dancing on a stage with a Vietnamese band and two Vietnamese women dancers during a USO style event. Helicopters, jeeps, one which they named "Whispering Death," and airplanes are also seen throughout the album as well as the landscape around the barracks.

The last page has some newspaper clippings including two poems "When Death Comes" and "A Soldier's Fate." Another clipping with the headline "Nixon Confronts Boy, 10 'Your Brother is in Heaven'" is also featured in this section. The album ends with "I only wish that I was still over there now - Pee Wee Bill" written on the rear pastedown.A nice collection of Vietnam war photography from a young soldier. .

        Two Autograph Letters, Signed, to Seldon Rodman].

      Deya, Mallorca. 21 and 17 February 1960. - Two pages, quarto, in ink on rectos of two sheets of onion-skin letterhead. A few faint creases from mailing, otherwise very good to fine. Very good literary letters to fellow author, Selden Rodman, sending word of Graves' travels plans, discussing Rodman's work, and commenting on the literary climate of the times: "It was good to meet you at last & find that you matched up with my mental picture of you. Thanks very much for the . book which I read on the 707 on the way home. How curiously the author differs from . the down to earth English farmer's son. . Your man is a tapestry figure, and its a very fine tapestry: heroic pseudo- Roman. I loved it. . . ." and ". . . The Insiders [Rodman's 1960 book criticizing formalism in contemporary art] is a tricky project, because the American climate is so stifling to independence of creation that most of an artist's time is spent in fighting for air, instead of getting on with his job. Our village is full of refugees from the chain gang, as they call themselves, but I guess that artists in the U.S. have an easier time than writers because the market isn't quite so exacting ." Poet, dramatist and art critic Seldon Rodman shared another interest with Graves -- in 1937 he published his dramatic narrative poem about T.E. Lawrence, LAWRENCE: THE LAST CRUSADE. Accompanied by a retained carbon copy of a 19 February 1960 typed letter from Rodman in response to Graves's letters, and a clipped article from the NYT about a later, 1964 appearance by Graves at City College, New York, and his Shakespeare revisions.

        THE ONLY RUSSIAN NOBEL LAUREATE IN ECONOMICS] Ekonomicheskii raschet nailuchshego ispolzovaniya resursov [i.e. The Best Use of Economic Resources]

      Izd-vo AN SSSR, Moscow 1960 - 348 pp. Publisher's binding. Very good condition. Previous owner's inscription, spotted to edges, extremities rubbed, corners bumped, pencil marks. First edition. Second printing. Leonid Kantorovich (1912-1986) is best known as the only Russian economist to have become a Nobel Laureate. In 1942 Kantorovich had already written the first version of this monograph. He was so far ahead of his time-and thought so far outside contemporary notions of political economy-that the book was not published until 17 years later. Only then did his pioneering ideas begin to be recognized and accepted by other economists. Subsequently, this book was translated into many languages. Ultimately, he was recognized in the West with the Nobel Prize. The book itself is a summary of the author's long-term research into methods of linear programming which is further developed here and applied to economic planning. The core of this book, and its main value, consists in its use of specific examples in modeling practical solutions to economic problems. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Compagni di strada

      Canesi, 1960. 8vo (cm. 25), 622 pp. con num.me ill.ni in nero su tavv. f.t. Ritratti originali di Leonida Repaci, Filippo De Pisis, Lucian Freud, Manara Valgimigli, Benedetto Croce, Edoardo Sanguineti (2), Giorgio Morandi, Vittorio De Sica (2), Andrea Camilleri, Giorgio De Chirico, Dante Isella, Alcide De Gasperi, Federico Fellini, Giuseppe Berto, Umberto Eco, Ugo Ojetti (eseguiti da L. Civerchia). Tela editoriale entro cofanetto fig. (illustrato a colori da C. Zavattini) con marginali abrasioni. Ds. leggermente allentato, ma buon esemplare. La moltitudine dei ritratti suscita la gradevole impressione di una lettura più completa e coinvolgente, accompagnata dalla viva immagine di tanti ‘Compagni di strada’. Il volume proviene dalla biblioteca del pittore romano Luigi Civerchia. I ritratti qui presenti mostrano l’idea di concepire il libro come un intelligente ed espressivo contenitore di memorie, le proprie innanzitutto, ma anche quelle dei diversi personaggi che egli ritrae, come intrecciandone i destini tra le pagine di uno stesso testo. Vale la pena notare che il nostro pittore ha scelto solo i libri come gallerie per i ritratti. Chi ha visitato qualche sua mostra, tra le tante tenutesi in Italia e all’estero, avrà infatti osservato che nei paesaggi o in altre composizioni le figure umane sono per lo più assenti, o comunque, hanno un ruolo del tutto secondario. E’ quindi una vera scoperta il Civerchia ritrattista, e lo è ancor più considerando la particolarità di esprimersi su di un mezzo singolare come sono le pagine di un libro. Luigi Civerchia è nato a Roma, nel popolare quartiere di Trastevere, nel 1928. Dopo una prima esperienza presso la bottega di uno scultore, continua il suo percorso nell’Atelier di Vittorio Grassi, momento fondante della sua formazione umana ed artistica. Si avvicina poi alla Scuola Romana seguendo con entusiasmo gli insegnamenti dei suoi Maestri ideali: Mafai, Pirandello e Quaglia.

        A very personal Marilyn Monroe notepad, from the start of her demise

      n.p., c.1960-1961. 6" x 9". "Spiral bound stenographer notebook, 6"" x 9"", by Chase Press Stationers & Printers, who supplied Monroe with her custom stationery. Four pages with notes in Monroe's hand. The first page reads ""Tonight / be there at 7:15 - Strassberg's [sic]"" then ""Later - Norman & Hedda - drums?"" and ""Tomorrow be ready at 12:30PM (for lunch) - John Houston [sic]"" and ""4:00 Norman's play reading."" The second page has a list of phone calls to make. The other two pages contain single words: ""Ruby"" and ""My"".It is always a thought provoking event to hold someone's personal note pad 'post mortem', but with this one being Marilyn Monroe's, in somewhat chaotic scribble, one can 'see' between the lines. Although only a few pages have writing on them, they clearly time stamp the note pad and show that this was the beginning of Monroe's demise.The people Marilyn scripts in her note pad are John Huston, Strassberg, and Norman and Hedda. Her notes are chaotic, rushed. Although Arthur Miller, her then husband is not referenced in this pad, Miller's long time friends, Norma and Hedda are. They were artistic college friends of Arthur Miller's and the two would visit them at their home/cottage in Port Jefferson. Monroe had been seeing them since she moved to Manhattan even though they were both still married at the time. John Huston, a Hollywood director, (who she misspells as Houston on two occasions in the pad), is also referred to in her notes. Huston only directed a few films with Monroe, however the one that matches the timing elements to her friendship of Norma and Hedda, and Arthur Miller, can only be on the set of the ""The Misfits"", a film drama released in 1961 which was written for Monroe by her then husband Arthur Miller, and sees her acting alongside her childhood hero, Clark Gable, as well as the great Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach, and Thelma Ritter. It was directed by the legendary John Huston, and Monroe's acting coach at the time was Paula Strasberg, who Monroe also refers to in her personal pad.It is especially ironic that this film's title and concept focused on a plot centering on a recently divorced woman (Monroe) and her time spent with a cowboy (Gable) and his rodeo-riding friend (Clift) in the Western Nevada desert in the 1960s. The uncanniness of both Monroe's personal life at the time along with the issues of the cast and crew completely paralleled the plot of the movie. The making of The Misfits was troublesome on several accounts, not the least of which was the sometimes 108 degrees (42 °C) heat of the northern Nevada desert and the breakdown of Monroe's marriage to writer Arthur Miller, Monroe's then husband. This was Miller's first original screenplay, written as a vehicle for Marilyn Monroe, whom he had married four years earlier. However, it was literally during the filming of this movie that their marriage broke and crumbled, and Monroe was sinking further into alcohol and prescription drug abuse. According to the director, Huston, in a 1981 retrospective interview, he was ""absolutely certain that she was doomed"" while working on that film: ""There was evidence right before me every day. She was incapable of rescuing herself or of being rescued by anyone else. And it affected her work. Monroe was nearly always late to the set, sometimes not showing up at all. Huston noted we had to stop the picture while she went to a hospital for two weeks."" Monroe was nearly always late to the set, sometimes not showing up at all. Huston literally had to shut down production in August 1960 to send Monroe to a hospital for detox. But the chaos did not end with Monroe's marital demise or her path into alcohol and drugs, Huston himself was struggling with his own demons. Director Huston gambled and drank, and occasionally fell asleep on the set. The production company had to cover some of his gambling losses. In a documentary about the making of ""The Misfits"", Wallach told a story of Huston's directing a scene in which Wallach was at a bar with Gable. Huston told him that the most intoxicated he had ever been was the day before, even though he had seemed sober. Mr. Huston got involved in other local Nevada activities outside gaming, including promoting the first annual camel races, which have continued annually every September to this day. But during one of his commutes, Huston's car overheated on the drive up to Virginia City via Hwy 341 Geiger Grade, and Huston ""executed"" the car by reportedly firing a stunt gun blank into the radiator (no doubt an act which was not performed sober). The chaos did not end during the making of the film either, and found within what is considered the most powerful image of the film was perhaps but a premonition of things to come, Monroe was in the scene where she runs into the middle of the desert and in her helplessness shouts: “You are all dead, you are all dead!”. Just two days later after the filming ended, Clark Gable, suffered a heart attack and died ten days later, November 16, 1960. Monroe and Miller divorced, and her addition to alcohol and drugs was in full throttle. Monroe later said that she hated the film and her performance in it. Within a year and a half, she was dead of an apparent drug overdose. There may be only a few pages of writing in Monroe's personal notepad, but it tells of many, many stories between the lines. A phenomenal and highly personal piece for a Monroe collector!"

        Ansicht des Klosters Fahr bei Zürich. Öl a. Leinwand.

      1960 - 50 x 67 cm , gerahmt, Wandmalerei Karl Peterli wurde 1897 in Wil geboren. Wie schon sein Grossvater, wirtete auch sein Vater im Restaurant Sonne, führte nebenbei aber noch ein Limonadengeschäft. 1907 starb sein Vater. Die Mutter musste sich fortan alleine um die acht Kinder, die Gäste in der «Sonne» und das Geschäft kümmern. Karl und seine Geschwister wurden dazu erzogen, zu Hause mit anzupacken.Ein besonders guter Schüler soll Karl Peterli nicht gewesen sein. Nur im Zeichnen, da erfreute er seinen Lehrer. Als Jugendlicher begann er dann eine Lehre zum Dekorationsmaler. Die Begegnung mit dem Winterthurer Maler Hans Schöllhorn leitete eine Wende ein. Als 20-Jähriger besuchte Peterli die Ecole des Beaux Arts in Genf, wo unter anderem Ferdinand Hodler unterrichtete. Es folgen Aufenthalte in Italien, Studien in Paris, Reisen nach Deutschland und Holland.Doch Peterli zog es zurück nach Wil. 1925 liess er sich wieder in seiner Heimatstadt nieder und heiratete die Musikerin Rita Tuason, mit der er drei Kinder hatte. Mit seiner Rückkehr nach Wil entschloss Peterli sich definitiv zu einer freien künstlerischen Tätigkeit. Gelegentlich entwarf er auch Fahnen und Beschriftungen und erteilte Zeichenunterricht an der Gewerbeschule. Er starb 1975 2500 gr.

        The Violent Bear It Away

      New York: Farrar, Straus & Cudahy 1960 - First edition, first printing. Inscribed by O'Connor on the half-title: "For Miller Williams / From Flannery". Publisher's red paper boards over gray spine, lettered in white and gray, gray top stain; in the original pictorial magenta dust jacket designed by Milton Glaser, with an illustration of a face peeking through plant leaves to the front panel in black and orange, lettered in white, yellow and black. Near fine, with a touch of toning to the spine head, bright and fresh interior; unclipped dust jacket, with small chips to the top edges of the panels and spine ends, light toning to the spine and rear panel, closed tear to the front panel, otherwise bright and fresh panels. Overall, a clean and pleasing copy, very scarce signed. This copy is inscribed by O'Connor to poet and fellow Southern writer Miller Williams, whom she met while giving a reading at a college in Georgia where he was teaching biology. As he remembers in a 2013 interview with Oxford American, "We became close friends, and I drove to her farm house once a month or so. She would show me her fiction, finished and unfinished, and I would show her my poems." When she saw their advertisement for an English professor, O'Connor contacted the University of Louisiana and insisted that Williams was the ideal candidate. Williams was hired in the fall of 1962, and began publishing collections of his poetry shortly thereafter. The Violent Bear It Away is a classic Southern Gothic novel, as it tells the story of the Francis Tarwater, a fourteen year-old boy from rural Tennessee who is trying to reconcile with his destiny as a Christian prophet. In this novel, O'Connor, herself a native of Georgia and raised Roman Catholic, explores the contrast between secular and spiritual world views; The Violent Bear It Away focuses on the conflict between Tarwater, who hears the voices of God and the devil in his head, and his uncle Rayber, a schoolteacher who values social science over religion. The Violent Bear It Away is both O'Connor's second novel and the last book to be published during her lifetime. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

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

      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.

        Drawings for the Bible

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1960 Illustrated by Marc Chagall. Text by Gaston Bachelard. Translated by Stuart Gilbert. First American edition, published the same year in Paris by Verve. Publisher's pictorial cloth boards illustrated by Chagall. A very good or better copy, with some light wear and chipping to the spine, but with the spine intact and extremely sturdy (uncommon for this edition), some wear to the extremities, bright boards, library stamp and bookplate to the front free endpaper, some very faint spotting and minor residue to the pastedowns, otherwise extremely bright and fresh interior. Overall, an attractive and presentable copy. Marc Chagall (1887-1985) was a prolific artist, born in Belarus and active in France, who is best known for his use of color and images drawn from folklore. His Jewish heritage and spiritual interests manifested themselves throughout his artistic career. After successfully collaborating with Parisian art dealer Ambroise Vollard, Chagall created a series of 105 etchings inspired by the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), begun 1930-1939 and completed 1952-1956. The etchings were published together in 1956 (the English title was Illustrations for the Bible) and he received much critical success. A complementary publication, Drawings for the Bible contains 96 heliogravure (photogravure) reproductions of Chagall's drawings from 1958-1959 "on biblical themes which in general he had not dealt [with] for his illustrations for the Bible reproduced in Verve 33/34." Additionally, this edition has 24 color lithographs that Chagall designed specifically for this volume, including a color pictorial cover. Although the images are sometimes difficult to identify without referring to the image captions at the rear of the text, this volume is both a unique presentation of the Hebrew Bible and a collection of striking and beautiful artwork by a modern master.. Illus. by Chagall, Marc. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.
