      Paterson, NJ: Pageant Books, Inc, 1960. - Second edition. INSCRIBED by the author to a prominent New York literary editor (name on request), "For the efforts you made on behalf of this book, which Peter Mayer continued." Mayer has had a very distinguished career in publishing, but before moving on to head Pocket Books and Penguin worldwide he worked at Avon in the 1960s, so we presume he had some responsibility in their producing the first mass market paperback of this novel so for the first time it could beeasily read by a wide audience, and thus became more generally known and acclaimed. Full gray cloth with black cloth author-title-publisher label on spine. lii, 599 pages. large octavo. Near Fine clean copy, no bookplates, no owner signature or marks, no soiling, but with slight rubbing, wear at spine ends; in a VG Minus dust jacket that is clean, and now held with rest of jacket within an acid-free mylar protective sleeve; jacket with edge chips, especially at and near spine top, where the deepest chip descends to a maximum of 0.5 inch. First published in the Depression this work was praised by New York authors and critics and remembered by them and their friends over the next quarter of a century, but this edition was the first chance most post-war readers across America had to read the book for themselves.

        Lithographs of Marc Chagall

      1960 - (CHAGALL, Marc) CAIN, Julien and SORLIER, Charles. The Lithographs of Chagall. Monte Carlo, New York, Boston: André Sauret; George Braziller; Boston Book and Art Shop, 1960-86. Six volumes. Folio (10 by 13 inches), original beige cloth, original dust jackets each with original lithograph, original acetates. $20,000.Mixed first French, German and English editions of all six volumes in the catalogue raisonné of Chagall's lithographs, richly illustrated with 28 original lithographs (including the dust jackets). Volume I inscribed, "To Shirlyy [sic] and Jack Mandel, Marc Chagall, N.Y. 1963.""Chagall's emblematic irrationality shook off all outside influences: color governed his compositions, calling up chimerical processions of memory where reality and the imaginary are woven into a single legend, born in Vitebsk and dreamed in Paris" (Dictionary of Modern Art). His art was aptly described by his biographer as "a troubling alloy of naturalism and magic fiction" (Sidney Alexander). For Chagall, the medium of lithography did not come easily. Printer Fernand Mourlot ran a lithography press where such greats as Braque, Matisse, Picasso, Miró and Chagall came to have their designs printed and to learn about this still nascent print-making process. "For many long months Chagall came and worked tirelessly, and his dissatisfaction allowed him to have only a few of his first attempts printed" (Sorlier, 45). Volumes I and II contain 24 of the original 28 lithographs published throughout the series; the dust jackets and frontispieces of Volumes III and IV account for the remaining four. (Volume V was published near the end of Chagall's life, and Volume VI was published posthumously.) All were issued separately over a period of 26 years and are very scarce as a complete set. All volumes published simultaneously in English, French and German. This set is comprised of Volumes I and III in English, Volumes II and IV in French, and Volumes V and VI in German. Volumes I and II were also issued in a deluxe signed limited edition of only 100 and 150 copies. Cramer, 43, 56, 77, 94. Gauss 391. Freitag 1914. Sorlier, 229. The recipients of this copy, Shirley and Jack Mandel, were instrumental in operating Camp NYDA, the summer camp for diabetic children conducted by the New York Diabetes Association.A fine inscribed set.

        Autograph manuscript

      1960 - CASTRO, Fidel. Autograph manuscript. No place, circa 1960. Single original leaf, measuring 6 by 8-3/4 inches, in manuscript on recto and verso. $25,000.Rare two-page autograph manuscript, circa 1960, written entirely in the hand of Castro soon after the Bay of Pigs, possibly containing his notes for a speech at the United Nations, expressing""often passionately""his reaction to what he describes, in part, as "our solid activity and the victorious and uncontrollable development of our revolution" against "expatriates and gringos," two pages in Spanish on a single original leaf.This rare two-page manuscript, entirely in the hand of Fidel Castro, contains text in Spanish on the recto and verso of a single leaf, with cross-outs and marginal notations. Possibly containing his notes for a speech at the United Nations, the text reads: "Hiram of Lubrijón [unclear] [translated into English] The Revolutionary Government is very aware of the desperate efforts that is [unclear] the efforts that reflect in the last days [lined out] the open [lined out] activity that the imperialism has been realizing during the last weeks in order to promote at all cost [unclear] revolutionaries, terrorism acts, murder attempts and all type of fights that have a tendency to interfere with the revolutionary process [unclear].

The U.S. denied Cuba's accusation of sabotage but admitted that it had sought to prevent the shipment. And so it went, reaching a high point in April of the following year in the infamous CIA-organized invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs. Over 100 exiles died in the attack. Close to 1,200 others were taken prisoner by the Cubans. It was later revealed that four American pilots flying for the CIA had lost their lives as well. The Bay of Pigs assault had relied heavily on the Cuban people rising up to join the invaders, but this was not to be the case. As it was, the leadership and ranks of the exile forces were riddled with former supporters and henchmen of Fulgencio Battista, the dictator overthrown by Castro, and would not have been welcomed back by the Cuban people under any circumstances.Despite the fact that the Kennedy administration was acutely embarrassed by the unmitigated defeat""indeed, because of it""a campaign of smaller-scale attacks upon Cuba was initiated almost immediately, under the rubric of Operation Mongoose. Throughout the 1960's, the Caribbean island was subjected to countless sea and air commando raids by exiles, at times accompanied by their CIA supervisors, inflicting damage upon oil refineries, chemical plants and railroad bridges, cane fields, sugar mills and sugar warehouses, infiltrating spies, saboteurs, and assassins, anything to damage the Cuban economy, promote disaffection, or make the revolution look bad.

      London: Heinemann,, 1960.. Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine white. With the dust jacket. Slight crease along spine with tiny nick to tail, an excellent copy in the jacket with tiny nicks to ends and corners, and the bottom edge of the rear panel with small tears and a crease. First edition, first impression, presentation copy of Coward's comic novel inscribed to the the actress Joyce Carey, "For Miss Joyce Carey with the cordial sentiments of The Author. Bessie - Bessie - Bessie". The meaning of this latter part may have something to do with the advent of Queen Elizabeth II into the novel's plot. Joyce Carey, OBE (1898-1993) is best known for her long professional and personal relationship with Noel Coward. In the midst of her stage career, which lasted 1916 to 1987, she rejoined Coward in 1942 to tour in his three newest plays, This Happy Breed, as Sylvia, Blithe Spirit, as Ruth, and Present Laughter, as Liz (a character based partly on Carey herself). After the war she played in Coward's new plays Quadrille and Nude with Violin (alongside Gielgud in London and Coward himself in New York). Her New York Times obituary noted that she "excelled in Coward plays" and that "her constructive comments helped shape" them.
