        Pablo Picasso signs a bullfight souvenir from the bullring at Nimes, France

      Signed "Picasso" on the reverse of a colorful circular paper originally folded and stapled to form a conical hat, 12" in diameter, c. 1960, depicting three stylized flamenco dancers with the legend: "Souvenir de la CORRIDA" ("Souvenir of the BULLFIGHT"). Vendors sold these hats at the entrance to the bullring to provide relief from the sun. Partial fold separation repaired with staples, creases and some moderate soiling. An excellent association piece, as Picasso was a great fan of bullfighting.

Two sinister strangers, Goldberg and McCann, who arrive supposedly on his birthday and who appear to have come looking for him, turn Stanley's apparently innocuous birthday party organized by Meg into a nightmare.

        Moments Preserved (Signed First Edition)

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1960. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. This is a signed first edition, first printing of the Irving Penn\'s first and most famous photobook \"Moments Preserved\" published by Simon and Schuster, New York, in 1960. Subtitled \"Eight Essays in Photographs and Words\", \"Moments Preserved\" gathers Penn\'s vast variety of enthusiasm - mostly for the vast variety of humanity - and slots them into categories by nationality: the French, the Italians, the English, and the Americans. Though most of these sections include fashion studies, still lifes, and the impressionist scents, they have in common the photographer\'s deftly understated portraits, printed here in 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. (Vince Aletti from \"The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century\") Measuring approximately 13.5 x 10 inches, the book is bound in beige cloth covered boards with a printed dust jacket protected by a mylar cover and is housed in a photographically illustrated laminated cardboard slipcase. The book is in FINE condition with a neat gift inscription. The dust jacket is in FINE condition with very superficial soiling. The slip case is in Near Fine condition with some surface and corner wear as well as some minor soiling to the back to the slipcase. Overall, this is an exceptional signed copy of a classic photobook that is very difficult to find in this condition. The book has been boldly signed and dated by Irving Penn on the first free endpaper and is inscribed to the famous art dealer, Mark Kelman. Cited in \"The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century\" by Andrew Roth.

        H.A. Lorentz et la coopération international. The Hague, Martinus Nijhoff, 1928. With a photographic frontispiece portrait of Lorentz, printed from a halftone block. Original publisher's grey printed wrappers.

      Not in Boni, Russ & Laurence, Bibliographical checklist ... Albert Einstein, 1960; for Lorentz: DSB VIII, pp. 487-499. An offprint of an overlooked article by Albert Einstein about his colleague, friend and fellow Nobel Prize laureate in physics, Hendrik Antoon Lorentz (1835-1928) in Leiden, written in French. Einstein wrote it before Lorentz died but added a 10-line postscript noting and commenting on Lorentz's death, which occurred on 4 February. The article originally appeared in Grotius: annuaire international for 1928 and discusses Lorentz's contributions to international reconciliation after World War I. Lorentz's widow gave a copy of the offprint to the British physicist Owen Richardson, perhaps for the occasion of his receipt of the Nobel Prize for physics in 1928, but perhaps due to her own death in 1931 the offprints seem to have hardly been distributed. We found no copy of the offprint in libraries worldwide.In fine condition. Einstein's appreciation of H.A. Lorentz, overlooked by Einstein bibliographers.

        Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary inscribes a book to noted actor Theodore Bikel, the same year Yarrow marched with Dr. Martin Luther King in Selma, Alabama and Washington DC for civil rights

      Signed book "Peter Yarrow" a book by James Michener titled "Japanese Prints", 1960 printing, Japan, 287 pages, hard cover, dust jacket, 9.25" x 12.5".

The inscription reads: "May, '63 For Theo, In remembrance of 'Theo Bikel - he comes to Cornell - come & see Theo Bikel - ' and on your birthday Warmest regards, (signed) Peter Yarrow". Peter was a 1959 graduate of Cornell University.The book "Japanese Prints", by James Michener, has beautiful prints tipped into it. In James Michener the Japanese print has found its ideal commentator. Combining the finished literary style of an outstanding novelist with a mature knowledge of his subject, he is able to bring this great art form to life in words, directly communicating his understanding, love, and enthusiasm rather than obscuring his subject in pedantry.

      Methuen & Co., London 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.

        Jazzlife: The Collector\'s Edition (Signed Limited Edition with 4 Signed Prints)

      Germany: Taschen, 2009. Limited Edition . Hardcover. As New. This is a remarkable collectors edition of Jazzlife published by Taschen, Germany in 2009 that had a limitation of 1000 signed and numbered copies. Weighing in at 35 pounds and measuring approximately 20 x 24 inches, this is a stunning production. By way of background, in 1960, photographer William Claxton and noted German musicologist Joachim Berendt traveled the United States hot on the trail of jazz music. The result of their collaboration was an amazing collection of photographs and recordings of legendary artists as well as unknown street musicians. The book Jazzlife, the original fruit of their labors, is a photobook classic that is highly treasured among jazz and photography fans. In 2003, Taschen began reassembling this important collection of material - along with many never-before-seen color images from those trips. They are brought together in this updated volume, which includes a foreword by Claxton tracing his travels with Berendt and his love affair with jazz music in general. Utilizing the benefits of today\'s digital technology, a restored audio CD from Joachim Berendt\'s original recordings has been produced and is included in this package. Jazz fans will be delighted to be able to take a jazz-trip through time, both seeing and hearing the music as Claxton and Berendt originally experienced it. This title features photographs of Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters, Gabor Szabo, Dave Brubeck, Stan Getz, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, and many more. Also contained in the package are 4 signed and numbered ultrachrome prints that each measure 11.5 x 16 inches. The book, prints, and CD are housed in a cloth covered box. The condition of the collection is MINT and is still contained in the original publishers shipping carton.

        Distinctive bottle of Haig & Haig Pinch scotch, owned by President John F. Kennedy, with intact contents in a Christmas gift box. Possibly unique as a Presidential artifact and a most desirable relic of Camelot

      n.p., [1960-1961] Sealed bottle of Haig & Haig Pinch blended scotch whiskey, given to Mrs. & Mrs. John F. Kennedy as an inaugural gift after he won the 1960 Presidential election. The scotch is in the original Christmas box, and shows some toning wear. The gift was stored in the home of Capitol police officer and Kennedy chauffeur/handyman James H. Boyer, Sr. after the Kennedys moved from their home in Georgetown to the White House in the Fall and Winter of 1960-1961. The lot is accompanied by a cardboard box label from "Steuben Glass Corning Glass Center", presumably the senders of the gift, and addressed to "Honorable John F. Kennedy".Also included and suitable for a final display are two receipts for alcohol, purchased by Mrs. John F. Kennedy, one while the Senator was campaigning for the Presidency, and a later one while President at "The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue" . The receipts were part of an important archive of Kennedy expenditures and together with the Scotch provide a museum quality gro
