        Moments Preserved

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1960. First edition. Large quarto, original beige cloth, original pictorial slipcase. Inscribed, "For Alexander Irving Penn." Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light wear. Slipcase is in near fine condition with just a touch of wear. Roth 101, pp. 158-159; Hasselblad pp. 186-7. A very sharp copy. 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.

        My Wonderful World of Slapstick [*SIGNED*]

      Garden City NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc.. Very Good in Very Good dj. 1960. First Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . [spine slightly turned, front hinge unobtrusively reinforced by a professional paper conservator, otherwise just a bit shelfworn at the bottom extremities; jacket slightly toned at spine, small chip at top of spine, rear hinge split but professionally repaired, overall a clean and attractive example of this easily-worn jacket]. (B&W photographs) INSCRIBED and SIGNED by Buster Keaton on the verso of the half-title page (facing the title page). The inscription reads: "To Fritzie / My Queen, / From me, The King, / Buster." (The inscribee was actress Fritzi Burr, and the inscription is a reference to their joint appearance in the U.S. touring company of "Once Upon a Mattress" in 1960.) Billed as the "intimate autobiography" of the great comedian/filmmaker, it's one of those memoirs that manages to be both enchanting and infuriating, written as it was back in the day when many Hollywood autobiographies were unencumbered by such niceties as fact-checking. Still, as the personal testimony of one of the cinema's great artists, it more than deserves its inclusion in the noted bibliography "100 Books on Hollywood & the Movies." And to say that Buster Keaton inscriptions are uncommon is an understatement; although he was not illiterate -- a ridiculous notion floated by one of his less astute biographers -- he certainly was undereducated (he was being knocked about onstage by his father from the age of three, fer chrissake), and written documents of any sort in his hand are about as common as his on-screen smile. His art was brilliantly intuitive, and will endure for precisely that reason -- but a man of letters he was not. [Note that a cracked front hinge on this book has been unobtrusively repaired and reinforced by a professional paper conservator, and a similar repair performed on the rear hinge of the jacket.] Signed by Author .

        My Wonderful World Of Slapstick

      New York: Doubleday, 1960. Later printing. Very good in a good dust jacket, with the jacket showing heavy wear, chipping, and the loss of the lower 1 1/2 inches of the jacket spine. This copy at least partially redeemed by Keaton's (scrawled) signature on the front free endpaper. From the library of the late actress June Havoc, with her bookplate. Although this particular example of Keaton's signature is not as precise as others, anecdotal evidence has it Keaton was rather inebriated when he signed this copy; and there is a personal connection between Havoc and Keaton, who were long-time personal accquaintences from their days on the vaudeville circuit. There are not many signed copies of this title.

        Krönika (Chronique). Översättning av Herr Hammarskjöld / Originalet publicerat i Cahiers du Sud 46 (1959), s. 329-343.

      [ENGLISH: Saint-John Perse: Krönika (Chronique). (Translation by Mr Hammarskjöld / Originally published in Cahiers du Sud 46 (1959), pp. 329-343.) Duplicated (not printed), A4 size, [1] + 11 pp. Stapled as issued. Provenance: Sten G. Lindberg, who has made an annotation in ink on first page to the effect that he had been entrusted by Uno Willers in August of 1960 with distributing this translation to the members of the Swedish Academy ("Sten G. Lindberg genom [Uno] Willers förmedling delaktig av en distribution inom Sv. Akademien 20.8.1960.") Together with a partly illegible handwritten note, apparently recording a telephone conversation with Dag Hammarsköld, who had called (Lindberg or Willers) during a pause in a session of the Security C - Klammerhft. Med påskrift av Sten G. Lindberg i bläck på första sidan: "Sten G. Lindberg genom [Uno] Willers förmedling delaktig av en distribution inom Sv. Akademien 20.8.1960." I stencilens rubrik daterad ‘New York, den 8 augusti 1960. / Dag Hammarskjöld’. Löst bifogad finns även en odaterad handskriven lapp i Lindbergs handstil, hastigt och delvis otydligt skriven som för att minnas ett telefonsamtal. Där framkommer att denna version av Hammarskjölds översättning, som utdelades i Svenska Akademien, ersätter en äldre: "Telefon hem mitt i säkerhetsrådets samntr. Paus där. Ringer för att säga att UW [=Uno Willers] ej skulle distribuera DH.s övers av Saint John Perse Chronique ty han har gjort om den [ ]". Föreliggande nya version hade postats till Sverige den 12 augusti och delades alltså ut den 20:e samma månad. Stencil i A4-format, [1] + 11 s. Denna ytterst sällsynta stencilerade upplaga innehåller en något tidigare version av Hammarskjölds översättning av "Chronique" än den som Bonniers utgav 1960 (se denna). Till stor del rör det sig naturligtvis om samma text, men det är flera detaljer och formuleringar som skiljer versionerna åt. Uno Willers, som var riksbibliotekarie, och hans vän Sten G. Lindberg, bokvårdschef på Kungl. biblioteket, har uppenbarligen varit den utomlands upptagne Hammarskjöld behjälpliga med att distribuera översättningen till hans kolleger i Sv. Akademien. Saint-John Perse (pseudonym för Alexis Léger, 1887-1975), var en fransk författare och diplomat, född i Guadeloupe i Västindien. Han valde den diplomatiska banan och kom efter posteringar i bl. a. Kina att göra en lysande karriär inom franska UD. Efter att ha brutit med Vichyregimen miste han dock sitt franska medborgarskap och tillbringade många år i USA, och bestämde sig för att enbart vara författare. Dag Hammarskjöld spelade en avgörande roll för att Saint-John Perse belönades med Nobelpriset i litteratur 1960.

        Irving Penn: Moments Preserved (Lacking Slipcase)

      Simon and Schuster, New York 1960 - First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Beige cloth-covered boards with title stamped in black on spine; with printed dust jacket; missing original slipcase. Photographs and text by Irving Penn. Introduction by Alexander Liberman. Captions and text collaboration by Rosemary Blackmon. Includes an index of plates. 184 pp., with 39 four-color plates and numerous black-and-white plates, finely printed in Switerland by Camera Publishers, C. J. Bucher, Ltd., Lucerne. 13 x 9-3/4 inches. CONDITION: Fine in Very Good dust jacket (1-inch closed tear at the top rear flap, moderate wear to the extremities, toning to the spine); missing slipcase. [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century. (New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz LLC, 2001), and in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004).] From Vince Aletti: "Irving Penn's first book, Moments Preserved, is an overview of an astonishingly busy career -- one that began in earnest when he was hired by Alexander Liberman in 1943 to be the art director's assistant at Vogue.Penn spent a month in Lucerne, Switzerland, overseeing the printers at C. J. Bucher, who had produced Avedon's Observations the previous year. For Moments Preserved, they worked with gravure, letterpress, and offset processes on separate paper stocks and had casts of Condé Nast's original engraving plates flown in from New York for the book's color reproductions. When the first gravures didn't have the requisite depth, those pages went back to press and another image layer was laid on top of the originals. The book's first edition print run of 20,000 was divided into French, Italian, German, and English editions.Subtitled Eight Essays in Photographs and Words, Moments Preserved gathers Penn's vast variety of enthusiasms -- mostly for the vast variety of humanity -- and slots them into categories by nationality: the French, the Italians, the English, the Americans. Though most of the sections include fashion studies, still lifes, and impressionist scenes.they have in common the photographer's deftly understated portraits, printed here in the subtlest gravure. Penn reinvented the classic daylight studio portrait for a more casual time, undercutting its formality but heightening its potential as a revealing performance."

To preserve his memory of the Little Prince, Saint-Exupery has made some forty watercolors, whimsical, gravely meticulous in detail. Each is an almost essential part of the story." [Actually, there are a few additional small sketches as well. A Rare Book in Superb Condition.] **** In a series of known publishers including, in chronological order: Reynal & Hitchcock; Librairie Gallimard; Harcourt, Brace & Co.; Harcourt, Brace & World -- this copy is probably an early example (1960 or 1961) from the 4th publisher even though the copyright page states "Copyright, 1943, by Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc." (which company did not come into existence until 1960).

        The Concrete Flamingo

      London - Cassell, 1960 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarcefirst edition of this murder mysterynovel by Charles Williams. harles Williams (August 13, 1909 ca.

        Excerpts from Visions of Cody.

      (New York New Directions 1960) - One of 750 numbered copies signed by the author. Selections from Kerouac's lengthy character study of Neal Cassady, who appears here as the title character, Cody Pomeray. It was in On the Road that Kerouac first immortalized Cassady as the frenzied, charismatic Beat firgure Dean Moriarty. Their friendship was intense and mutually influential, even if the two more or less parted ways in the Sixties, when Cassady took up with the Merry Pranksters and became involved in the San Francisco psychedelic scene. Cassady has been credited with helping to transform Kerouac's writing from a traditional narrative style to the tumbling, "first thought best thought" mode for which he is so well known. Indeed, in the preface to this book, Kerouac comments that his intention was to write "an enormous paen which would unite my vision of America with words spilled out in the modern spontaneous method. Instead of just a horizontal account of travels on the road, I wanted a vertical, metaphysical study of Cody's character. . . ." Bound in cream boards backed in purple cloth, in original acetate wrapper. Very minor bump at top edge of upper board, small closed tears to acetate at spine head and foot, else a very fine copy. Publisher's announcement laid in. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Rivina canescens (Rivina humulus, Rouge Plant)

      - 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. 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.

        Malcolm

      Secker & Warburg, London 1960 - First English edition. Fine in just about fine dustwrapper with very slight toning on the spine, and with a long blurb by Dorothy Parker. Perhaps the author's most important novel, later dramatized by Edward Albee. Inscribed by the author to American composer Virgil Thomson: "For Virgil Thomson, with sincere wishes from James Purdy." Purdy's novel *Out with the Stars* (1992) features a central character, Abner Blossom, based upon and inspired by Virgil Thomson. In an autobiographical essay, Purdy stated that his book *Eustace Chisholm and the Works* "won the strong admiration of the noted composer Virgil Thomson, who had been following my career from the beginning and who was a special admirer of my novel *The Nephew*."
