        Production of commodites by means of commodities;

      Cambridge: Cambridge University Press,, 1960. Prelude to a critique of economic theory. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered gilt, with the dust jacket. An exceptionally bright copy in a jacket with very light toning to spine panel and a few minor nicks and marks. A remarkably fresh copy. First edition of Sraffa's attempt to perfect classical economics' theory of value, as originally developed by David Ricardo and others. "Production of Commodities is a peculiarly sparse book. The argument has been pared to the absolute minimum to sustain the propositions which Sraffa wishes to advance. Yet, the precision and logical elegance of the argument are 'the work of an artist working in the medium of economic theory' (P. Newman)" (John Eatwell in The New Palgrave). With the author's Times obituary laid in. A scarce title, especially so in such nice condition.

        Fiftieth Anniversary Report of the Harvard Class of 1910

      The Cosmos Press, Cambridge, MA 1960 - 8vo. 561pp. Original red cloth. With the stamps of the Harvard Club of New York, including their discarded stamp. A scarce T.S. Eliot item, his lengthy autobiographical entry occupying pages 133-136. Members of the class were asked to send in their current contact information, along with autobiographies summarizing the half century that had passed since their graduation. Eliot gives his address at Faber & Faber, his occupation as "Author and Publisher", lists his honorary degrees and awards and opens his text: "What the Secretary appears to be bent upon extracting from his wretched classmates is a full-length autobiography. If he really wants everything he says he wants he should have provided a good deal more paper, but I am glad he didn't. I don't see why I should again review my life 'since graduation': I did my best to oblige him in this respect 25 years ago, and that statement can stand, with two important qualifications-- I now prefer claret to burgundy, and I prefer Inspector Maigret to Arsène Lupin. So I shall begin with 1933: that is a good date for me, as that is the year in which I broke into Show Business." Despite his playful/combative opening tone, Eliot goes on at length to list his many publications and accomplishments, and ends by saying that without his marriage to Valerie Fletcher "no achievement or honour could give me satisfaction at all." Another lengthy entry is provided by his classmate Walter Lippmann. Accompanied by the printed pamphlet of the speeches given by Lippmann and Clarence Little and a copy of the chairman's report. Gallup C642. Spine a bit faded and with a few soilmarks, a few bumps to board edges [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Signed Photograph

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Original 8 x 10 photograph of the great conductor, inscribed to the impresario and Columbia Artists manager André Mertens "in friendship," signed, and dated New York, April 1960. Walter is shown studying a score with his baton in his hands, in a dramatically-lit image. In very fine condition. 8 x 10 inches (20.7 x 25.4 cm).<br>The important musical manager André Mertens began his career as the directory of the State Ministry of Fine Arts in Germany, before fleeing to the USA in 1933. There he became the founder of Columbia Artists Management and played an important role in developing the careers of artists such as Leontyne Price and Renata Tebaldi. In the post-war years, he also served as a link between the musical worlds of the USA and Europe, facilitating American tours for European orchestras under Karajan, Walter, Bernstein, and others, and recommending young American artists for European opera houses. After his death in 1963, his work was continued by his wife Clara, who also made several generous institutional bequests in his name, including the André Mertens Galleries for Musical Instruments at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

      Paterson, NJ: Pageant Books, Inc, 1960. - Second edition.

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.

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.

        Moments Preserved

      1960 - PENN, Irving. Moments Preserved. New York: Simon and Schuster, (1960). Large quarto, original beige cloth, original dust jacket, original pictorial slipcase. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $6200.First edition of Penn's first book, an especially scarce presentation/association copy warmly inscribed by him to the noted Swedish art critic and author who would become a longtime correspondent, "For Ulf Hard af Segerstad, With all good wishes, Irving Penn, New York 1962." Accompanying the book is Penn's autograph note, penned and signed by him on a card printed with his New York address: "Oct. 1, 1962. Dr. Mr. Ulf Hard af Segerstad, I have just recently been looking at clippings of various reviews of my late book Moments Preserved [underlining in original]. My wife, who is Swedish, translated your review for me with great care. I don't wish to embarrass you, but I would like you to know that it was the only review written on either side of the Atlantic which understood my aim, and was generous enough to say that it had been in some measure achieved. With many thanks and good wishes, Sincerely yours, Irving Penn."This very scarce presentation/association copy of Moments Preserved, Penn's groundbreaking first publication, is warmly inscribed by him to the noted Scandinavian art critic and author, Dr. Ulf Hard af Segerstad, who became a longtime friend and correspondent with the photographer, and would co-author a volume in tribute to Penn's wife, the renowned Swedish-born model, titled, Photographs: A Donation in Memory of Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn (1996). This memorable copy of Moments Preserved also includes a laid-in autograph note, penned and signed by Penn on the recto and verso of a card printed with his New York address. Dated October 1, 1962, Penn's signed autograph note likely signals the beginning of the friendship between the two men, with Penn clearly indicating his appreciation for Segerstad's review of Moments Preserved and affectionately mentioning his wife, Lise Fonssagrives-Penn, who translated Segerstad's review for Penn. Lise Fonssagrives-Penn, who married the photographer in 1950, remains heralded as "one of the most elegant women ever to wear a dress. She was at the height of her career in 1949 when Time put her on its cover". She was also the apple of Irving Penn's eye" (Vogue). To Alexander Liberman of Conde Nast Publications, publisher of Vogue, "the Penns represented 'an extraordinary relationship between a photographer and a model. She was the inspiration and subject of some of Penn's greatest photographs'" (New York Times). This wonderful inscribed first edition highlights not only Penn's appreciation for Segerstad's review, but also signals an important connection between the photographer, his wife, and Segerstad. Penn, one of his era's most accomplished photographers and a major contributor to Vogue, has been lauded for his "imagery of extreme elegance" (Blodgett, 101). "An overview of an astonishingly busy career". Moments Preserved gathers Penn's vast variety of enthusiasms". Penn reinvented the classic daylight studio portrait for a more casual time, undercutting its formality but heightening its potential as a revealing performance" (Roth, 158). Segerstad's own publications include: Scandinavian Design, Modern Finnish Design, and Modern Scandinavian Furniture. With an introduction by Alexander Liberman. A fine inscribed copy and laid-in signed autograph note. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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."&#157;"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.

        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.

        Production of commodites by means of commodities; Prelude to a critique of economic theory.

      Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1960 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered gilt, with the dust jacket. An exceptionally bright copy in a jacket with very light toning to spine panel and a few minor nicks and marks. A remarkably fresh copy. First edition of Sraffa's attempt to perfect classical economics' theory of value, as originally developed by David Ricardo and others. "Production of Commodities is a peculiarly sparse book. The argument has been pared to the absolute minimum to sustain the propositions which Sraffa wishes to advance. Yet, the precision and logical elegance of the argument are 'the work of an artist working in the medium of economic theory' (P. Newman)" (John Eatwell in The New Palgrave). With the author's Times obituary laid in. A scarce title, especially so in such nice condition. [Attributes: First Edition]
