        Botteghe Oscure.

      Rome: [De Luca Editore], 1948-1960 - 25 volumes, octavo. Original printed buff wrappers. 8 volumes (IX-XVI) with wraparound bands; 9 volumes (XVII-XXV) with dust jackets. A few unopened volumes. Wrappers and jackets slightly toned with lightly creased and nicked extremities, text blocks lightly toned. An excellent set. Complete collection of the semi-annual literary journal Botteghe Oscure, with the 1949 Rome issue of Volume I (Volume I was first published in 1948 in Naples). Founded by Marguerite Caetani in Rome in 1948 and named after the street on which the editorial office was located, Botteghe Oscure was an explicitly international literary magazine, both in scope and distribution. "In twelve years it published writers from thirty countries in five languages: English, Italian, French, German, and Spanish. Most contributions appeared in the original, with no translation; the only exceptions were made for texts written in less common languages like Greek, Korean, or Dutch, which were translated into English Caetani wanted to create something different from the publications that populated the Italian literary scene in the 1940s, which she described as 'historical, critical, political, dry as dust' in a letter to her half sister, poet Katherine Biddle" (Lucamante, Elsa Morante's Politics of Writing, p.106). Caetani, together with Giorgio Bassani, her one constant collaborator and editor for the Italian section of the magazine, sought to support both established and unknown authors and published contributions by the likes of W. H. Auden, André Frénaud, Giuseppe di Lampedusa, Guglielmo Petroni, Nelly Sachs, Edith Sitwell, Dylan Thomas, and William Carlos Williams, among others. [Attributes: First Edition]

Original burgundy linson boards, lettered in silver to spine, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [viii], 9-296; a very good clean copy with the suggestion of a vertical crease to spine and some dusting and spotting to edges of book block; protected by an equally attractive, unclipped dustwrapper (16s) with the photographic portrait of the young author to the lower panel; the wrapper with a couple of tiny nicks to head of spine with one very small chip; a short closed tear (15mm) to lower joint at top edge (now neatly and archivally repaired with tissue) together with a small associated patch of surface loss (10 x 7mm); some browning to the reverse, and light overall toning.

        FLORILÈGE. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. VINGT GRAVURES SUR CUIVRE DE MADAME *** [AMANDINE DORÉ]. Poésies érotiques

      Sans lieu, ni nom, ni date [vers 1960] - ans lieu, ni nom, ni date [vers 1960] 1 volume grand in-4 (32,7 x 25,7 cm), 77 feuillets, en feuilles, couverture rempliée, titre imprimé en bleu sur le premier plat de couverture. Chemise cartonnée à dos de papier parcheminé (manque l'emboîtage). Livre et chemise à l'état proche du neuf. Belle impression sur papier BFK de Rives. Édition de bibliophilie imprimée à 195 exemplaires seulement. Celui-ci, 1 des 25 exemplaires sur papier de Rives BFK avec une suite en sanguine des 20 planches avec remarques sur Rives teinté. (il manque à notre exemplaire le croquis d'une remarque annoncé à la justification). Le volume s'ouvre sur une Présentation restée anonyme mais fort bien écrite : " (.) Si l'on en croit montrer aujourd'hui, en face de la licence et du parler couillu, une sorte de honte ou d'hypocrisie qui nous oblige à rabaisser la cotte de nos femmes à boutonner nos braguettes, cela tient sans doute à l'anémie de notre temps. (.) Il fallait, pour transposer sur le cuivre les évocations de ces carmes inspirées par l'Aphrodite Populaire, la main d'une femme : elles sont toujours pudiques, jusque dans leurs suprêmes abandons. Seule, une femme était capable de traduire les plus ardents gestes de l'amour avec une caressante poésie." Référence : Dutel, Bibliographie des ouvrages érotiques publiés clandestinement en français entre 1920 et 1970, n° 1584 : "Anthologie de textes publiée vers 1960. Elle est ornée de 20 gravures hors-texte attribuées à Amandine Doré. Amandine Doré serait la descendante de l'illustre Gustave Doré (mais rien n'est moins certain selon les sources). Née en 1912 elle meurt en 2011 âgée de 99 ans ! Elle débute comme illustratrice puis touche au domaine galant. Sous son nom de naissance sa production est licencieuse mais est plus érotique sous le pseudonyme de Madame ***. Au moment d’entrer dans la vie du romancier t’Serstevens (ami de Blaise Cendrars), Amandine suit des cours aux Beaux-Arts et se destine au professorat de dessin. C’est son frère André Bonne, qui est éditeur, qui l’envoie chez t’Serstevens pour qu’elle étudie avec lui la possibilité d’illustrer un texte sur les corsaires. Amandine, devait être encore adolescente quand il l’a connue au début des années quarante alors que lui avait dépassé les 55 ans. C’est en 46 qu’ils se sont mariés à Tahiti. T’Serstevens avait 61 ans! Amandine débute alors une activité d’illustratrice de voyages pour les livres de son mari, aquarelle et pointe sèche notamment. Elle a illustré en particulier de ses charmants dessins la plupart des livres que t’Serstevens a publiés après les voyages faits en commun après la guerre: Polynésie (ils y ont séjourné trois ans), Espagne, Mexique, Sicile, Sardaigne, Iles Eoliennes, Grèce, Maroc, etc. Elle dessine même des foulards tout en continuant une production galante. « Ce que Redouté a fait pour les roses, elle l’a fait pour l’hibiscus, le pua, le tiare, le frangipanier et tant d’autres merveilles de cette flore excessive dont elle n’a abandonné que les parfums » dira d’elle t’Serstevens, dans son introduction au volume 3 de son œuvre « Tahiti et sa couronne ». Son oeuvre érotique est abondante et remarquable de sensualité. Bel exemplaire, tel que paru, de ce beau livre illustré érotique à très petit tirage avec suite.

        The Leopard

      London: Collins and Harvill Press,, 1960. Translated from the Ialian by Archibald Colquhoun. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Spine very slightly rolled, very occasional foxing internally, slight spotting to edges. Otherwise, a fine copy in the bright jacket, head of spine very so slightly creased, short closed tear to base of spine. First edition in English, first printing. First printed in 1958 in Italian, The Leopard or Il Gattopardo became the best-selling novel in Italian history. Lampedusa failed to get his brilliant tragicomic satire of Sicilian aristocratic life during the Risorgimento published in his lifetime, and when it was published it was immediately attacked from both the Right, for his portrayal of aristocratic lassitude and decadence, and the Left, for his ruthless send-up of the Italian unification and his depiction of the Sicilian proletariat.

        The Hildebrand Rarity; On Her Majesty's Secret Service; The Property of a Lady; You Only Live Twice; The Man with the Golden Gun; Octopussy

      Chicago: Playboy, 1960. THE COMPLETE COLLECTION OF IAN FLEMING'S JAMES BOND WORKS IN PLAYBOY MAGAZINE; appearing simultaneously or near-simultaneously with the first book editions. "James Bond and Playboy magazine have had a long history together. It started in 1960 when the magazine negotiated rights to first publish Ian Fleming's new 007 short story 'The Hildebrand Rarity' in its March 1960 issue. Illustrated by Allan Phillips, for many Americans it was their first introduction to James Bond. The story would be published a month later in the short story collection 'For Your Eyes Only' in April 1960..."It was not for another three years in April 1963, when the first James Bond film 'Dr. No' was about to open in America, did Playboy return to Ian Fleming's creation. In the meantime, Bond on the page had become popularized by President John F. Kennedy. When the hardback first edition of 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' went on sale in the UK, Playboy serialized the novel for American audiences over the April, May and June 1963 issues. The novel was later published by New American Library in August that year."In 1964, Playboy capitalized on the growing Bond fever. "The January issue published the short story 'The Property of a Lady,' which Fleming had written in 1963 as a commission by Sotheby's (it was later released in the collection 'Octopussy and The Living Daylights' in 1966). Fleming's penultimate full-length novel, 'You Only Live Twice', was syndicated over three issues in April, May, and June 1964. Fleming died in August."1965 saw the syndication of Fleming's final novel 'The Man with the Golden Gun' over its April, May, June, and July issues. It was published in the US in hardback a month later... Playboy's publication of Ian Fleming writing came to a close in 1966 with the syndication of his final short story 'Octopussy' in the March and April issues" (from MI6: The Home of James Bond).Chicago: Playboy, 1960-1966. 14 issues in original wrappers; housed in two beautiful custom boxes by noted book artist Sjoerd Hofstra. Very light wear; generally fine condition. A RARE COMPLETE SET. Very Good.

        FLOWER, FIST AND BESTIAL WAIL - INSCRIBED

      Eureka, CA: Hearse Press, [1960]. First Edition. Slim octavo (21cm); illustrated card wrappers, stapled; [28]pp. Lengthily inscribed by the author on verso of front wrapper: "Dear Reader - E.V. Griffith brought out this first collection of my poetry. As a first collection, long out of print, it might bring you $ or you might hide it under your shirt. It brought me stumbling into the poetry world after a solid 10 year drunk + hospitalization and near death. I have continued to drink and write, and, as you know, I will die. Charles Bukowski." Beneath his inscription, Bukowski has drawn a small self-portrait, and has added a drawing of a potted flower in yellow paint beneath his name on the title page. Pinpoint wear to upper corners, else Fine. A superb copy of the author's first book, produced after numerous delays by early advocate and Hearse Press publisher E.V. Griffith. A lengthy, early, and humorous inscription written not quite as late as the 1970's (when Bukowski produced a small "Author's Edition" out of leftover copies), but likely around the time his literary reputation had just begun to take off.

First edition, first impression, of Sraffa's "classic in capital theory", his critique of the orthodox theory of value and distribution which laid the groundwork for the revival of classical and Marxian approaches. "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) … Did any scholar have so great an impact on economic science as Piero Sraffa did in so few writings?" (The New Palgrave IV, p. 450; 460).

        To Kill A Mockingbird.

      London; Heinemann. 1960. 8vo. Original burgundy linson boards, lettered in silver to spine, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [viii], 9-296; a very good clean copy with the suggestion of a vertical crease to spine and some dusting and spotting to edges of book block; protected by an equally attractive, unclipped dustwrapper (16s) with the photographic portrait of the young author to the lower panel; the wrapper with a couple of tiny nicks to head of spine with one very small chip; a short closed tear (15mm) to lower joint at top edge (now neatly and archivally repaired with tissue) together with a small associated patch of surface loss (10 x 7mm); some browning to the reverse, and light overall toning. First U.K. edition; first published by Lippincott in Philadelphia in the same year. This classic of modern American literature, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1960, is a publishing phenomenon and probably the most widely read book dealing with race in the United States. Generations of children, and adults, have benefitted from the life-lesssons learned by young Scout, Jem, and Dill as they watch lawyer Atticus Finch battle social and racial divides in America's deep south in the 1930s.
