        Holy Cats By Andy Warhol's Mother

      Self-published, 1960. 1st. Hardcover. Collectible; Very Good. One of the scarcest-- and most eccentric-- of Warhol's early titles, this offbeat, self-published 1960 collaboration ("Reading Warhol", pgs. 124-130) between the artist and his mother, Julia Warhola, incorporates Julia's love of cats and angels. The slim octavo consists of 21 photolithographs on various "color wove" paper. The plates are immaculate, with no markings or wear of any kind. The pictorial boards are clean and well-preserved as well. Very light age-toning to the panel edges and mild darkening along the spine. By any standard though, this is a very solid, easily VG to VG+ copy.

        PEEPING TOM (1960)

      Anglo-Amalgamated Film Distributors 1960 - Vintage original 30 x 20" (76.2 x 50.8 cm.) advance double crown teaser poster, UK. Karlheinz Bohm, dir: Michael Powell; Anglo-Amalgamated Film Distributors. British advance teaser poster for the classic 1960 film. The British double crown format poster for the film turns up from time to time, but this advance issue -- which does not state the film's title -- is an extreme rarity. Noted director Powell's most controversial film, about a serial killer who films his female victims as they are dying. Reviled by critics on its release and today considered a masterpiece, it is the second of three feature films the director made after parting ways with his longtime filmmaking partner Emeric Pressburger. Ostensibly a film about a killer with serious Freudian issues, but later reassessed as much more conceptual and complex. Roger Ebert pointed out famously in his 1999 review of the film that the audience is implicated as much as the killer. "Movies make us into voyeurs. We sit in the dark, watching other people's lives. It is the bargain the cinema strikes with us, although most films are too well-behaved to mention it." Martin Scorsese is probably the most famous fan of the film, and takes Ebert's argument further, saying "I have always felt that Peeping Tom and 8 say everything that can be said about film-making, about the process of dealing with film, the objectivity and subjectivity of it and the confusion between the two. 8 captures the glamour and enjoyment of film-making, while Peeping Tom shows the aggression of it, how the camera violates. From studying them you can discover everything about people who make films, or at least people who express themselves through films." On linen, there has been some skillful touch-up to a few abrasions in the blank black top of poster, and some routine fold line conservation, poster is overall very nice, NEAR VERY GOOD.

        A supplement to Elwes' monograph of the genus Lilium. Parts I to IX.

      London. Dulau & Co. Ltd. / The Royal Horticultural Society. 1933-1940; 1960. NINE PARTS, 30 handcolored lithographed plates and 10 color collotype plates (TOTAL OF 40 plates), accompanying text sheets, decorative paper wrappers, large folio approximately 22 x 15 inches (56 x 38 cm). Parts I to VII: Plates in very good to fine condition with occasional very minor faults at edges (bump to corner, light creasing, tiny edge tear). Wrappers have wear to spines, occasional light wear to edges, 1 x 1 inch lightly discolored area at lower left corner of front wrappers from removal of label. Parts VIII and IX: plates in very good to fine condition (first plate in last volume is loose); slight wear and soiling to wrappers, discolored area at lower left corner of front wrappers from removal of label. This important botanical monograph, the Supplement to Henry Elwes 1880 Monograph of the Genus Lilium highlights the extraordinary wealth of China and surrounding countries in the species Lilium. As Elwes' friend and collaborator Arthur Grove states in the introduction to the Supplement: "When Elwes prepared his Monograph about fifty species of Lilium were known to exist, and it was then the general opinion among experts that few remained to be discovered. With his customary acumen, Elwes himself expressed the view that 'The only regions from which much novelty can be expected are the Eastern Himalayas and the immense tract of unexplored and difficult mountain country which surrounds our Indian Empire on the north and east, and which lies round the head-waters of the Irrawaddy, the Bramputra, and the Yang-tse-kiang. --- The Corean peninsula may also produce some new species of Lily; but though the flora of that country is absolutely unknown to us, it may be expected that any indigenous plants of great beauty or horticultural value have already found their way into the gardens of Japan.' These words were written in 1880, some years before the botanical exploration of Western China began, and Elwes proved a wiser prophet than he knew. At that time, however, no one in England suspected that the area indicated by him was soon to prove richer in lilies than either Japan or Western North America." The first 7 parts of the Supplement were issued between 1933 and 1940. These were limited to 250 copies with 30 handcolored plates drawn and lithographed by Miss Lilian Snelling. The large folio size is used to great advantage to showcase the stunning flowers, with botanical details to the side. Each plate is accompanied by a descriptive text of 2 to 4 pages, including the habitat of the plant. More than half of these 30 plates feature plants from China, with all but 3 of the 30 from countries in Asia. This Supplement merits a place in Sitwell and Blunt's Great Flower Books, where it is noted: "A work of the greatest interest and value to all Lily growers. The Supplement is considerably finer both in text and illustration than the original monograph." (p.94). In 1960 and 1962 a further two parts were sponsored by the Royal Horticultural Society, containing "the new lilies introduced since 1933 by Kingdon Ward and other collectors. The text is by Dr. W.B. Turrill, F.R.S, lately Keeper of the Herbarium at Kew...The illustrations are by Miss Margaret Stones, another great botanical artist, who is following worthily in the steps of Miss Snelling." (from the introduction by F.C. Stern).In part VIII are five beautiful color plates of lilies, two of which are from North America - Lilium rubescens (southern Oregon, California) and Lilium Michiganense (Canada and Mid west USA),plus two of Asian origin (Yunnan and Manipur). In part IX, four of the flowers depicted are from North America - Lilium washingtonianum var. purpurascens (north-western California and Oregon); Lilium pitkinense (California); Lilium Pardalinum var. giganteum (Northern California); Lilium kelleyanum variant (California); the last is from the Himalayas.

        LA DOLCE VITA (1960)

      Cineriz 1960 - Vintage original 10 ¼ x 12 ¾" (26 x 31 cm.) program; illustrated, saddle-stitched card wrappers, Italy. Rome: Riama Film, 1960. A striking and rare first-run program for what can easily be described as Fellini's most pivotal film, if not his finest. Unlike the more sentimental and abstract films that would follow, La Dolce Vita is an unflinching seven-day journey through 1960s Rome, with Mastroianni, a jaded journalist at the center of the story, constantly surrounded by revelry, beautiful women and a beautiful city, but no semblance of happiness or love. This deluxe program reflects Fellini's use of stark black-and-white throughout the film, with nights that are noirish and daytime sequences that are blindingly, uncomfortably bright. Throughout are lonely women, photographers, crowds, clubs, parties and general debauchery, with Mastroianni coming close enough to his humanity to touch it, but unable to do so. Especially rare to find an original Italian promotional book for this seminal Italian film. NEAR FINE with a couple of tiny stains

        COBOL: Initial specifications for a COmmon Business Oriented Language

      1st Edition Washington, D.c. Superintendent Of Documents Government Printing Off, 1960. FIRST EDITION of the first report on COBOL, the first computer programming language designed to run on all computers, regardless of make or model. With over a hundred pages of extremely rare related material. s computer use began to grow throughout the 1950's, there was rapidly developing a need for a programming language that was not computer-specific. As outlined in the introduction of this seminal report: "On May 28 and 29, 1959, a meeting was called in the Pentagon for the purpose of considering both the desireablility and the feasibility of establishing a common language for the programming of electronic computers in business-type data processing. Representatives from users, Government installations, computer manufacturers and other interested parties were present. There was almost unanimous agreement that the project was both desirable and feasible at this time. The concept of three committees or task forces was agreed upon... The Committee held meetings between September 18 and November 7, 1959, and proceeded steadily in its task of resolving problems and completing the language. The name 'COBOL', which suggests a COmmon Business Oriented Language, was adopted... Final editing and initial distribution of the report to the Executive Committee was accomplished December 17, 1959."The COBOL report is contained in a three-ring binder with Remington Rand UNIVAC labels on front and spine that includes a massive amount of material presumably distributed to individuals attending the "Remington Rand UNIVAC Computer Seminar for the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations" from December 5th to 9th, 1960 (as noted on general title page for binder). The binder is divided into seven sections labeled: Computer Fundamentals; System Fundamentals; Design App. of Advanced System; System Simulation and Games; System Languages; Plan Imp. of Computer Sys; and Examp. of Adv. Sys. Equipment. Among the approximately 30 printed and mimeographed items are texts of lectures, biographies of the participants, and various Remington Rand UNIVAC publications.Washington, D.C.: Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, 1960. Quarto, original blue printed wrappers. Contained in a three-ring binder (with corresponding three punch holes for COBOL article) with extensive amount of related material. Housed in custom cloth box. Binder with portion of label rubbed off; generally fine condition throughout. The COBOL report itself is scarce; with all the associated material, the collection provides a possibly unique opportunity to acquire material that thoroughly documents a critical moment in the history of the computer. Very Good.

        Projekt: schwarze Brille. - Typoskript mit handschriftlichen Ergänzungen und 3 Originalfotografien, rückseitig handschriftlich bezeichnet.

      - 1960 - 19 x 19,5 cm. Brief und 13,5 x 18 cm. Fotos. Zusammen 4 Teile. Zentrales Objekt im Schaffen von Daniel Spoerri, das sein Werk massgeblich prägte. Im Vorwort der "Anekdoten zu einer Topographie des Zufalls" bezieht sich der Künstler auf dieses Objekt: "Vielleicht trägt es zum Verständnis meines Versuches bei, wenn ich hinzufüge, dass das Bedürfnis, Gegenstände nur zu beschreiben und in der Erinnerung nachzuzeichnen - anstatt sie zu handhaben und zu sammeln -, mir erst wichtig wurde, als ich eine Brille konstruiert hatte, deren Gläser mit Nadeln besetzt waren." (S. 5) Die Brille war ein Teil der Brillensammlung, die Spoerri zwischen 1961 und 1963 in Kopenhagen, Paris und Milano ausstellte. 1963 wurde die Sammlung in der Fluxuspublikation "L'optique moderne, Collection de Lunettes, prensenté (sic!) par Daniel Spoerri, avec en regard, d'inutiles notules par François Dufrêne" publiziert. Das hier abgebildete Original wurde, laut dem Vorwort von Emmett Williams in der "Topographie" 1964 in New York zerstört. - Der maschinengeschriebene Text erklärt die Absicht des Objektes, "meine bilder anstatt sie wie bisher zu fixieren, möglichst genau zu beschreiben, um die gegenstände von der fantasie des lesers abhängig zu machen". Der Text, auf vorgedrucktem Briefpapier Spoerris mit der Adresse "24 rue mouffetard" und als Kopfzeile "concerne: exposition mouvement au stedelijk museum amsterdam et moderna museet stockholm", die aber schon im Frühling 1961 stattfand, und bei der Spoerri mit Pontus Hulten als Kurator wirkte. Auf Grund des Briefpapiers kann angenommen werden, dass die Datierung "November 1961" stimmt. - Die drei Fotografien rückseitig handschriftlich bezeichnet und mit dem Titel "Schwarze Brille" versehen.
