        RAHAB ET LES ESPIONS DE JERICHO

      PARIGI, Mourlot Frères, 1960 - Litografia originale a colori impressa su carta vellina. Tavola fuori testo tratta da "Dessins pour la Bible". Il volume, da cui è tratta l'opera in esame, conteneva 24 litografie originali e venne pubblicato la prima volta nel 1960 in edizione limitata. Il libro è introdotto da un testo di Gaston Bachelard filosofo francese che ha avuto una carriera fuori dal comune, all'inizio impiegato alle poste, in seguito si laurea e diventa professore di fisica e chimica a Bar-sur-Aube, nel 1922 si lauera anche in filosofia e insegna questa materia alla Facoltà di Digione prima di diventare professore alla Sorbona fino al 1954 . Marc Chagall da giovane rimase sicuramente affascinato dal Vecchio Testamento, i cui personaggi e narrazioni ebbero una grande influenza nella sua produzione artistica. Questa serie di litografie raffigurano alcune delle storie più note della Bibbia, comprese la creazione, la cacciata dal Paradiso, la rivalità tra Caino e Abele, la fuga di Agar nel deserto e travagli di Giobbe. Come ogni opera di Chagall, queste raffigurazioni sono ricche di ispirazioni audaci, simbolismi amalgamati con tradizione, umanità e poesia. L'inizio della produzione litografica di Chagall risale al periodo di Berlino (1922-1923) ma fu nel 1946, negli Stati Uniti, che Chagall accettò di illustrare "Le mille e una notte": le tredici tavole del volume segnarono i suoi primi passi nella litografia a colori.Di ritorno a Parigi nel 1950, l'artista si recò dallo stampatore Fernand Mourlot, al quale si deve in gran parte il rilancio della litografia nel dopoguerra. Dal 1950 al 1952 Chagall frequentò assiduamente l'atelier di Mourlot dove imparò tutti i segreti del mestiere. Le prove di quel periodo furono stampate in pochi esemplari o distrutte, poiché lo scopo dell'artista non era quello di realizzare opere finite ma di impadronirsi della tecnica. Tra il 1922 e il 1985 Marc Chagall realizzò 1500 litografie. Molte litografie di Chagall furono realizzate con venti / venticinque colori e testimoniano l'enorme lavoro dell'artista: nessuno prima di lui raggiunse una perfezione tale da associare all'ineguagliabile ispirazione la completa padronanza della tecnica. Chagall fece della litografia non un mezzo per moltiplicare le sue opere, ma uno strumento necessario a una creazione che non poteva essere espressa in alcun altro modo. L'artista non realizzò quasi mai bozzetti preliminari per le sue litografie e da ciò derivano l'incanto e la spontaneità creatrice dei suoi lavori. Esemplare in edizione corrente perfettamente conservato. . 0

        Lettre tapuscrite à Sartre

      1960 - - 2 décembre 1960, 26,7x20,9cm, 5 feuillets in-4. - (Brouillon tapuscrit de lettre à Jean-Paul Sartre, avec des corrections autographes et avec une seconde version de la première page, et tapuscrit avec corrections autographes de « Le monde en question (Cours du monde) » (projet pour La Revue internationale) Ensemble de cinq feuillets tapuscrits, rectos seuls (à l'exception d'un feuillet recto-verso), avec des corrections au stylo bille rouge et au stylo bille noir de la main de Maurice Blanchot. Cet important ensemble témoigne des échanges entre Maurice Blanchot et Jean-Paul Sartre autour de la fameuse « Déclaration sur le droit à l'insoumission dans la guerre d'Algérie » et du projet de publication qui en découla, La Revue internationale. Connue sous le nom de « Manifeste des 121 », cette déclaration, signée par de nombreux intellectuels et artistes et publiée le 6 septembre 1960, avait été rédigée par Dionys Mascolo et Jean Schuster, aidés de Maurice Blanchot, dans la perspective du procès du réseau Jeanson (groupe de militants français soutenant le FNL) et dans le but d'informer l'opinion du mouvement de contestation contre la guerre d'Algérie et ses dérives anti-démocratiques. Parmi les signataires figurait, bien sûr, Sartre. Le manifeste avait fait prendre conscience à nombre de personnalités du poids qu'elles pouvaient exercer dans le débat public, voire dans le cours de l'Histoire. C'est dans ce contexte qu'à l'automne 1960, Maurice Blanchot, Dionys Mascolo et Elio Vittorini décident de créer une revue non pas littéraire mais critique, dont le dessein serait de poursuivre cette action. Ils sollicitent l'aide de Jean-Paul Sartre, dont l'extraordinaire aura saurait profiter favorablement à la publication. Dans sa lettre à Sartre, Blanchot tente de convaincre le philosophe de se joindre au projet : « Vous m'avez rappelé ce que j'ai dû dire quelquefois et que j'ai toujours intimement pensé : que la Déclaration ne trouverait son vrai sens que si elle était le commencement de quelque chose. [.] Je voudrais dire mon sentiment propre : je crois que si nous voulons représenter, comme il faut, sans équivoque, le changement dont nous avons les uns et les autres le pressentiment, si nous voulons le rendre plus réel et l'approfondir, dans sa présence mouvante, c'est seulement à partir d'un organe nouveau que nous pourrons le faire. A partir de là, si l'on voit Sartre, et d'autres avec lui parmi les 121, décider de s'exprimer en cette forme choisie délibérément comme nouvelle, chacun [.] comprendra que vraiment nous entrons dans une nouvelle phase et que quelque chose de décisif a lieu qui cherche à s'affirmer. » Mais Sartre refusera de s'engager dans la revue. Cependant, au cours des six premiers mois de l'année 1961, Blanchot se consacre corps et âme au projet, dans l'espoir qu'il se réalise. Le tapuscrit que l'on joint, « Le monde en question (Cours du monde) », révèle le sommaire qu'il imagine pour le premier numéro : des textes sur la déstalinisation, la situation de la presse allemande, le cloisonnement intellectuel en France et en Italie, la grève de la faim ou encore le mur de Berlin et l'utopie. La revue ne verra jamais le jour, au grand désespoir de Blanchot qui s'enthousiasmait profondément à l'idée d'une écriture collective et internationale. La version définitive de la lettre de Blanchot à Sartre sera publiée dans le dossier consacré par la revue Lignes au projet de La Revue internationale (n° 11, septembre 1990). Important témoignage sur les suites que souhaite donner Blanchot avec l'aide de Sartre à la « Déclaration sur le droit à l'insoumission dans la guerre d'Algérie ». [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Typescript letter of 3 pages (plus a second corrected version of the front page) and corrected in red pen on a transformation project of a magazine and a "Declaration". attached two pages of a plan entitled: "The world in question (course in the world)," which is perhaps related to the review cited by Blanchot [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Subterraneans (Original Film Poster)

      Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1960. Original one sheet poster for the 1960 film. From one perspective, a fairly one-dimensional representation--perhaps even a caricature--of Beat culture, but culturally fascinating in that it was made at the height of the Beat era, with A-list talent by a top studio, and, until Walter Salles' 2012 adaptation of "On the Road," was the only feature-length film ever made from a Kerouac novel. Kerouac was paid $15,000 by MGM for the rights to the book, and bought his first home with the proceeds, on Long Island. A film that rarely screened today, and has never been available on any kind of home viewing format. While its perspective on the actual Beat scene may be skewed or wildly misinterpreted, it is nonetheless important as an interpretation of Kerouac's world from the outside looking in. 27 x 41 inches (105 x 89 cm), folded. Near Fine.

        The View from the Fortieth Floor (Inscribed to Robert and Ethel Kennedy)

      New York: William Sloane Associates, 1960. Second printing. INSCRIBED by the author to Robert Kennedy and his wife: "To Ethel and Bob Kennedy / With fond memories of the cold of Wisconsin and the rains of West Virginia. / Teddy / Theodore H. White." A wonderful association. White spent a great deal of 1959 and 1960 in the company of Robert Kennedy in the process of writing his nonfiction book, "The Making of the President: 1960," published the in 1961. The book famously documented John F. Kennedy's road to the presidency, and won the Pulitzer Prize. This novel, published the year before and making the rounds while White worked with the Kennedy clan, was given by him to the couple during their time together. "The View from the Fortieth Floor" is the story of a publisher's struggle to save his failing magazines without losing his honor and integrity. Very Good in a Good to Very Good dust jacket. Book has a slight lean, with cloth lightly faded and rubbed. Jacket is chipped at the corners and moderately soiled, with some silverfish damage at the bottom half of the front flap fold. Accompanying the book, as reference, is a non-inscribed later printing of "The Making of the Presidency: 1960," in Near Fine condition.

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1960. First edition. Large quarto, original beige cloth, original dust jacket, original pictorial slipcase. Signed by Irving Penn on the half title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Slipcase in near fine condition with light wear. A pleasing, collectible copy of this photographic highspot. Irving Penn was an internationally known American photographer who became popular for his work in fashion photography. He worked at Vogue magazine, and he photographed for Issey Miayke and Clinique. His work serves as an example of excellent photography even today. Moments Preserved is his first publication. Irving Penn said befittingly of his work, "[s]ensitive people faced with the prospect of a camera portrait put on a face they think is one they would like to show the world. Very often what lies behind the facade is rare and more wonderful than the subject knows or dares to believe" (1975). His photography is reverently held at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, both of which also hold collections of personal materials that relate to Penn's career. Roth 101, pp. 158-159; Hasselblad pp. 186-7.

        Incredible content letter of the Rebbe, Menachem Schneerson, in English! – “There are no two camps in the Jewish people … The Jewish people is one people, united by one Torah, under one G-d … there will come a day when this will be realized … Stop any Jew in the street … and ask him, ‘What is a Chosid’ he will unhesitatingly reply something like this: ‘A Chosid is a bearded Jew with long sidelocks, dressed in an old-fashioned way, who puts on two pairs of Tefillin, prays much longer…’”

      Brooklyn, New York, July 7, 1960. 8.5" x 10.75". "Rare Typed Letter Signed “M. Schneerson” in English, 3p, 8.5” x 10.75”, separate sheets. On his lightweight letterhead “Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson / Lubovitch / 770 Eastern Parkway / Brooklyn 13, N.Y.” in Hebrew and English. Brooklyn, New York, 12th of Tammuz 5720 (7 July 1960). To H.A. Goodman, 27 Lordship Park, London. Edited with 11 English words in his hand. Small paper loss in blank upper left of each page after staple removal. Frayed at blank edges of second and third page, affecting one typed word. Very Good condition.In part, “There is, of course, the general principle that the larger sum already includes the smaller one, or as our Sages expressed it, ‘In the sum of 200, 100 is included.’ I refer to the teachings and way of life of Chassidus. For Chassidus did not come to minimize in any way, G-d forbid, but to add to and strengthen all matters of Torah and Mitzvoth by instilling a spirit of vivacity and enthusiasm into all aspects of Jewish life…“Although you will suspect me of being favorably inclined to the Chassidic point of view, and I will not deny it, and in any case it would be futile to deny it, nevertheless the fact is that Chassidus, far from creating a conflict in the matter of allegiance to the Torah and Mitzvoth, is the ingredient which gives the necessity flavor and zest to all matters of Torah and Mitzvoth, and can only strengthen and vitalize all positive forces in Jewish life…”Discussing the work of his “father-in-law of saintly memory,” the Rabbi continues, “His work was not confined to the Chassidic community, as you know, but to all sections of Jewry, including what you call ‘the other camp’ … This he did from the profound conviction that there are no two camps in the Jewish people; that the Jewish people is one people, united by one Torah, under one G-d … the Chassidic movement is not the property of any particular group, but the heritage of all our people...“American youth is not of the philosophic turn of mind. They have neither the patience nor the training to delve into long philosophical discussions, and to evaluate different systems and theories. When they are induced to go to college and introduced to all sorts of ideas, including those that are diametrically opposed to the Torah and Mitzvoth, and there are many of them, since there are many falsehoods but only one truth, this approach can only bring them to a greater measure of confusion…”"

        ZEN AND ZEN CLASSICS.

      [Tokyo [1960-70], Hokuseido. Brown cloth, very good, 5 vol.. set, index, bibliography, 124+211+185+340+225 pp., dj on all. b.w. illustrations, all FIRST EDITION except vol. 2 which is. 2nd printing. AUTHOR PRESENTATION & HIS INITIALS VOL.1. RARE. This illusive title has been out of print for a long time, only a couple of the volumes were reprinted, the complete work consisting of 5 volumes is rare and seldom found complete regardless of edition. * ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT WORKS IN ENGLISH ON ZEN: This is a comprehensive set of writings on Zen, Zen arts, the Zen masters and historical background. A wonderful set of works, with English, Japanese characters & Romanized texts. * A very well written, readable set of books. The celebrated Zen master D.T. Suzuki described Blyth as "one of the most eminent exponents of Japanese culture." **** OTHER RELATED WRITINGS BY BLYTH ON ZEN & HAIKU: ZEN AND HAIKU: Blyth's studies on Haiku, Japanese humor and Zen are "unique contributions towards East-West understanding." Blyth lived & worked in the east 40 years, until his death in 1964. The history of Zen is the history of moments. It cannot be, like the history of ideas, or even the history of the freedom of thought, an account of development, systematization, criticism, modification, replacement and so forth. Zen seems to become deeper sometimes, shallower, broader, narrower sometimes, but there is no progress of the ordinary kind. It is a history only in the sense of being a list of names of great men in the attainment of great and so forth. Zen seems to become deeper sometimes, shallower, broader, narrower sometimes, but there is no progress of the ordinary kind. It is a history only in the sense of being a list of names of great men in the attainment of great Buddha-hood. . Please check with us as we may have this in stock. Also please visit our website where you can download our latest catalog of Blyth books. You can also email us and request the list. We try to maintain a good number of his titles in stock at all times. * BLYTH'S CONTRIBUTION: Blyth lived and worked in the East for forty years, until his death in 1964 at the age of sixty-six. From the time of his internment in Japan during World War II, Blyth wrote assiduously. In the 1950's, his "ZEN IN ENGLISH LITERATURE" and "ORIENTAL CLASSICS" and "HAIKU" reached enthusiastic readers in America and Europe. Aldous Huxley describes Blyth's work as "illuminating." As William J. Higginson writes in his "HAIKU HANDBOOK," thanks to Blyth "a new interest in Japanese Haiku began to grow among poets of the immediate post World War II generation." ... Blyth's Contribution to cross-cultural understanding was manifold. In 1945, Blyth assumed a post as professor of English at Tokyo's Gakushuin University, the former Peers' School. For almost twenty years he tutored Crown Prince Akihito, the present Emperor. Blyth played a leading role in Emperor Hirohito's historical declaration of January 1, 1946, that he was a human being rather than a god. Blyth edited numerous writings from English and American literature, making them available to avid Japanese readers. **** FIRST EDITIONS: Following is a list of the First Editions: Vol. 1: 1960; vol. 2: 1964; vol. 3: 1970; vol. 4: 1966; vol. 5: 1962; vol. 7: 1962. [vol. 5, 7 are same contents] see additional notes below. There was no volume six ever published nor issued. * IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT WHAT A COMPLETE SET IS: COMPLETE IN 5 VOLUMES. Blyth originally planned this work to be an 8 volume set, but due to his untimely death, it only went to 5 volumes [per dust jacket notes found on volume 2]. The back of the dust jacket on volume one [First Edition] shows the list planning on a total of 8 volumes in all. . The whole set now actually consists of 5 volumes only and is complete in that state. It contains the below list of volumes, the list is based on our primary observation of each volume in addition to the publisher's notice of the series found on the dust jackets of several volumes. * The set is complete with volumes 1-5, there can be an acceptable variant in the last volume which can either be numbered volume 5 or 7, contents remains the same, it was merely the publisher's error. The value the a set with either volume 5 or 7 remains the same in our eyes, both issued in 1962 as the First Edition. * THE COMPLETE SET OF 5 VOLUMES: . Vol. I: GENERAL INTRODUCTION, FROM THE UPANISHADS TO HUINENG also WHAT I ZEN ? THE HISTORY OF ZEN, THE BELIEVING MIND, SONG OF TRHE WAY [THE CHENGTAOKE], THE PLATFORM SUTRA. * Vol. II: HISTORY OF ZEN, 713-867 also THE FIVE SECTS, GOZU ZEN AND ROAN ZEN, ENO AND HIS DISCIPLES, SEKITO'S DISCIPLES, SEPPO, SEPPO'S DISCIPLES, HOGEN & DISCIPLES, YAKUSAN TO SEKISO, SENSU, KASSAN, SHOZAN, TOZAN, SOZAN & UNGO, UMMON I, II, III THE SANDOKAI, HOKYOZAMMAI, POEMS OF HANSHAN I, II, ZEN MYSTICISM, EXISTENTIALISM, WAYS AND THE WAY, NATURE, HUMAN NATURE, THE BUDDHA NATURE THE POETIC NATURE, DEFECTS OF ZEN. * Vol. III: HISTORY OF ZEN 867-1260 also THE DISCIPLES OF TOZAN, NANGAKU AND BASHO, JOSHU, HYAKUJO RINZAI AND OBAKU THEIR DISCIPLES. * Vol. IV: MUMONKAN, HISTORY OF KOREAN ZEN, WUMENKUAN &c. * Vol. V: TWENTY-FIVE ZEN ESSAYS: WUMENKAUAN. . ! Note: vol. 5 and 7 are the same contents, simply a . numbering error on the part of the publisher. * Vol. VI: HISTORY OF JAPANESE ZEN, DOGEN HAKUIN, ETC. To our knowledge, this volume was never published. The contents were likely incorporated into other volumes with variant titles. * Vol. VII: ZEN ESSAYS, CHRISTIANITY, SEX, SOCIETY, ETC. . !! Note: vol. 5 and 7 have the same contents, simply a . numbering error on the part of the publisher. * NEVER ISSUED: Vol. VIII: BUDDHIST SERMONS ON CHRISTIAN TEXTS. The publisher never issued this title as part of this series, but issued it as a monograph in 1952, several years predating this series, then again in 1976 posthumously. Neither editions ever had any markings to indicate it to be a part of this series, we can only assume Blyth made a simple error when discussing this title as part of the current series. * ** = Please see note below: ** Hokuseido made an error in the numbering of this set. volumes 5 & 7 are identical. In fact, Blyth only published the first 5 of the planned set of 8 when he died in the fall of 1964, the last 3 volumes never published. To further complicate matters, in 1962 there was a 7th. volume set published but discontinued after Blyth's death, this was then reduced down to be numbered as volumes 1-5. The contents of old vol. 6 and 7 were combined to become new volume 5. This fact is clearly stated on verso of title page of new volume 5, "First published, as volume 7...1962 then reprinted as vol. 5, 1966." Suffice to say, when complete, the set is RARE in either of the 5 or 7 volume variants. The 8th volume was issued later as a monograph, and does NOT state volume 8. * The dust jacket on volume 1 clearly shows the plan to publish 8 volumes in the complete planned set of 8. The dust jacket of volume 5 of the 5 volume set clearly states a new and revised volume count to be now 5. Volume 5 in the new set contains: TWENTY-FIVE ZEN ESSAYS, [CHRISTIANITY], SEX SOCIETY &c. Introductions by D.T. Suzuki. * Please inquire with us for other titles by Reginald Horace Blyth, as we try to keep them in stock. This list is posted to our website, please visit and down load it or contact us for a current catalogue. *** SIZE & BINDING: The set is uniformly bound in brown cloth, with black lettering, 11.5 x 18.5 cm. Each volume was issued with a uniform dust jacket, each in a different color. Later editions were issued in stiff wrappers, some with dust jackets again in the same size. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: .

      Lippincott, Philadelphia 1960 - A bright, attractive first edition of Lee's powerful novel.

The dust jacket also Near Fine with a few short tears at the top of the front panel and corresponding creases, and minor wear at the spine ends and corners.

A book that usually turns up much the worse for wear, this is a particularly clean copy that has just come out of a private collection.Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning coming of age novel, set in Maycomb, Alabama. An American classic, the novel took over two years for Lee to write- it was inspired by her own upbringing. (In fact, Lee's father was a lawyer who had defended black clients at the cost of his practice). Its production was not without difficulty and Lee once became so angry over the course of writing the novel that she tossed the manuscript out a window. The book has never been out of print, sold tens of millions of copies, and is required reading for the American adolescent. To Kill a Mockingbird was also adapted by Horton Foote into a 1963 film, directed by Robert Mulligan and starring Gregory Peck. The film would win three Oscars. "?skilled, unpretentious, and totally ingenious." (Contemporary New Yorker review). Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]
