        Midsummer Night's Dream

      1960 - BRITTEN, Benjamin. A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Opera in Three Acts. Op. 64. Libretto adapted from William Shakespeare by Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears. Vocal Score by Imogen Holst and Martin Penny. London: Boosey & Hawkes, (1960). Quarto, original paper wrappers. $3800.First edition of the piano-vocal score, inscribed by Britten on the title page to Meredith Davies, who conducted the North American premiere of the opera in 1961: “For Meredith with every good wish from Benjamin Britten. Aldeburgh 1960.”Realizing that he did not have enough time to commission a libretto for a new opera to be performed at the opening of Jubilee Hall in Aldeburgh, Britten turned with his friend and confidante Peter Pears to Shakespeare, discarding half the text of Dream and distributing some of the rest among other parts; the opera was completed in under seven months, and first performed at Aldeburgh in 1960 with Pears as Flute and Britten conducting. “Shakespeare has suffered some terrible operatic settings, and yet he has also inspired four or five of the greatest operas ever written, Arguably, one of these is Britten’s adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream" (Boyden, 594). “A magnificently rich operatic score” (New Grove 3:294). Meredith Davies, one of the great British conductors of the 20th century, worked closely with Britten over the course of two decades. In addition to presenting the North American premiere of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, he also conducted its 1961 performance at the Aldeburgh festival and was chosen to conduct (along with Britten himself) at the historic first performance of Britten’s War Requiem at Coventry Cathedral in 1962. Text in German and English. Signed by Davies in pencil on the front cover, occasional pencil notations throughout.Interior fine, light wear and soiling to original wraps. A near-fine inscribed copy with a fine association. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Caretaker.

      London: Methuen & Co., 1960. First edition. Octavo, original wrappers. Signed by Harold Pinter on the title page. Very good in wrappers as issued. Uncommon signed. It was with The Caretaker that Harold Pinter had his first major success, and its production history since it was first performed in 1960 has established the work as a landmark in twentieth-century drama. The obsessive caretaker, Davies, whose papers are in Sidcup, is a classic comic creation, and his uneasy relationship with the enigmatic Aston and Mick established the author's individuality with an international audience.

        Rivina canescens (Rivina humulus, Rouge Plant)

      Bodycolour on vellum mounted on thin card with green painted frame, unsigned. Caption "Sp[ecies] Pl[antarum] p. 177 [by Linnaeus] Drawing numbered 134, lower right. Auction cutting of unknown date or auction house (though possibly Sotheby's, 1960's, 70's) on verso attributes the painting to Ehret. Rare watercolour on vellum, unsigned, attributed to Georg Ehret The distinctive lettering, wording, numbering and painted mount, as well as the exquisite handling of the botanical portrait itself indicate beyond reasonable doubt that this is the work of Georg Dionysius Ehret, the great 18th century German botanical artist, who lived and worked in England for the last 34 years of his life. This fine, accomplished watercolour drawing undoubtedly comes from his English years and is one of the rich trove of drawings that was collected in albums (hence the number in the lower right corner), and then later dispersed as the virtuoso aristocratic collectors of the era passed away. Created in a happy conjunction of scientific interest and aesthetic sensibility, Ehret's watercolours epitomize the hopeful and enlightened view of the period when it looked as though all the elements and workings of the world would soon be known and properly valued. Ehret's drawing of the Rouge plant exemplifies the characteristics that make his work so outstanding, which can be said to be simplicity itself, he was able to let the plant speak for itself, not as a specimen but as a particular plant who for the moment represents its species. The effect achieved is very close to musical, especially in this drawing. Calman, Ehret, Flower Painter Extraordinary.

        TESTA DI FAUNO

      PARIGI, AU PONT DES ARTS, 1960 - Tavola originale tratta da album a fogli sciolti, esemplare 47 / 175, in prima tiratura, composto da frontespizio tipografico, frontespizio litografato a colori su disegno di Picasso, foglio con testo di Jaime Sabartès, 11 tavole litografate a colori su carta avorio incise da Daniel Jacomet, 1 carta recante il colophon e cartella editoriale in tela beige recante il titolo in rosso sul piatto superiore. Il foglio è tratto da un pregevole suite che riproduce con il mezzo litografico, in formato originale, i dipinti su carta della serie La Joie de Vivre, eseguiti da Picasso ad Antibes sulla Costa Azzurra fra l'agosto e il settembre 1946. Le tavole recano la potente capacità di sintesi tipiche dello stile picassiano. I soggetti delle raffigurazioni sono principalmente due: le teste di fauno e la natura morta. Il fauno, colto talora nell'atteggiamento di suonare il flauto, è nella pittura di Picasso il simbolo di una condizione al tempo stesso umana e ferina, appagata e in pieno accordo con gli istinti della natura. Le nature morte sono composte di oggetti comuni, come un gruppo pesci o una caffettiera, che alludono ai semplici piaceri della vita. Le immagini sono risolte con segni energici, in nero e a colori, alternati o sovrapposti a campiture di colori piatti, sapientemente alternati fra loro. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo. 0

Cluchey played Pozzo.

        À bout de souffle [Breathless] (Original Pressbook for the 1960 film)

      Paris: Les Films Impéria / Films Around the World, 1960. Original pressbook for the 1960 film. A fascinating object, created in a die-cut style we have never seen duplicated, made by Films Around the World, the distributor that picked up the film for international distribution. The only copy we have ever seen. With a middle splash page containing a grouping of blurbs that anyone could retire on critically, including Jean Cocteau, Jean-Paul Sartre, Maurice Bessy, Jacques Becker, and Joseph Kessel. Godard's first feature film, written by François Truffaut, and arguably the most important film of the French New Wave. In addition to promoting an entirely new approach to cinema, cross cultural boundaries were broken, as the film's female star was American actress Jean Seberg, and her boyfriend, Jean-Paul Belmondo's Michel, is a thug obsessed with Humphrey Bogart. 14 pages, saddle stitched, 11 x 17 inches.

      Paris: Cinédis, 1960. Original black-and-white photographic lobby card from the 1960 film, "Testament of Orpheus," Jean Cocteau's final work in the cinema. The last film in Cocteau's "Orphic" trilogy, following "The Blood of a Poet" (1930) and "Orphée" (1950). The only film in the trilogy featuring Cocteau himself, as an aging poet who knows he is dying (as indeed he was), his greatest desire being to experience rebirth so that he can qualify for celestial immortality. With cameos by Pablo Picasso, Charles Aznavour, bullfighter Luis Miguel Dominguen, and Yul Brynner. A few seconds of color are spliced in at one point, a surreal effect used prior to this film in "Portrait of Jennie" (1948) and later in Samuel Fuller's "Shock Corridor" (1963). Having run out of funds in mid-production, Cocteau was given the prize money won by François Truffaut for "Les Quatre Cents Coups" in 1959 to complete filming. Truffaut, the father of the French New Wave, produced the film. 12 x 9.5 inches, double weight. Near Fine. Small French cinema photo store logo stamped on the verso. Criterion Collection 69.

        GYPSY (Inscribed By Stephen Sondheim, a Fine/Fine Review Copy with Ethel Merman's Signature Tipped in)

      New York: Random House, 1960. Sondheim, Stephen (Lyrics), Jule Stein (Music), Arthur Laurents (Book). GYPSY. Suggested by the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee. New York: Random House, (1960). First Edition, first printing. A fine copy in a fine priced ($2.95) dust jacket, a tiny bit of soil to the back panel but otherwise almost faultless. INSCRIBED on the front free endpaper: "To Jack/ Happy 75th! / Stephen Sondheim." Basis for the 1962 film adaptation of the same name starring Rosalind Russell and Natalie Wood. A SIGNED card by Ethel Merman (who created and made famous the Broadway role of Gypsy's mother) has been tipped onto the front-free endpaper. Finally, to top off this very special copy, the original publisher's review slip dated April 26th, 1960 has been laid in. Stephen Sondheim has been a generous signed of posters, programs, photos, and even music quotations. But, as with most of Stephen Sondheim's hardcover libretti, GYPSY was published in a very small first printing designed for a tiny specialty market and there were never public signings. Inscribed copies of the published first edition such as this one, in superlative original condition, are rarely found and highly prized. Please check out the other Sondheim books we currently have in stock.. Signed. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine.

        By the Man Himself.

      New York: Simon and Schuster,, 1960. As told to Bob Considine and Bill Slocum. Octavo. Original grey cloth, spine and front board lettered in white and orange, top edge red, red endpapers. With the dust jacket. 8 photographic plates. An excellent copy in the price-clipped dust jacket a touched rubbed and creased at spine-ends. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed "To my old friend Charles Gore, in memory of the old days at Benton Harbor, lots of luck pal, Jack Dempsey, 5-23-60". Old days indeed, Dempsey is referring to his first defence of the world title that he took from Jess Willard in 1919; "My first defence of the title was on Labor Day, 1920, against a dying friend of mine. I knocked him out because I loved the guy. Hell of a guy. Billy Miske" (p.126). The fight took place at the Floyd Fitzsimmons Arena, Benton Harbor, Michigan, owned by and named for a lifelong friend of Dempsey's, a local sports promoter. The recipient, Charles W. Gore, was a prominent attorney, later a Michigan circuit judge, and evidently at the time of the Miske fight something of a "sport" . A pleasing association, harking back to the Golden Era of American pugilism.
