      Florence, Fratelli Alinari, 1960. Three volumes (36.5 cm), I: xxi (1), 125 (5) pp., with frontispiece and 26 plates accompanying the text (A1, B2, C1, D16 in colour), and at end plates numbered 1-207 (plus 187 bis, 187 ter, 187 quater; nos. 160, 208 not issued and omitted from "Indice delle Tavole"). II: xviii, 138 (8) pp., with 81 plates accompanying the text (including 31 bis, 38 bis), and at end plates numbered 209-414 (plus 354 bis, 354 ter, 354 quarter, 354 quinter).

Uniform publisher's quarter-morocco bindings, original slipcases. - The core of the work is a list of over 3000 bindings, mostly produced 1450-1550, which are classified party by city, and partly by type ("Greek" bindings, medallion and plaquette bindings, those with architectural decoration, antiphoners and choir-books). The author has seen the vast majority; about 20% are illustrated. "Although there may be disagreement about some of M. de Marinis's findings, there can be no doubt of the importance and permanent value of his book, which for the first time supplies a broad and scholarly basis for the study of Italian binding... So long has passed since the book was published that few copies are likely still to be available; I can only end by assuring anyone fortunate enough to secure a copy that he will not regret it" (from a review by Anthony Hobson, in The Book Collector, Winter 1963, pp.511-519). Printed by Giovanni Mardersteig on hand-made paper. "Questo edizione è limitata a 500 esemplari", however about half of the edition was destroyed in the Florence flood of 1966. Of the remainder, approximately thirty copies were purchased by Martin Breslauer, Inc. c. 1977. All of these copies had traces of mildew on the cloth boards. B.H. Breslauer, The Uses of bookbinding literature (New York 1986), pp.21-22. ¶ Cloth very lightly spotted (as often); otherwise in faultless state of preservation.

        For Your Eyes Only.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1960. First edition of the eighth novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light toning to the spine. Jacket design by Richard Chopping. A sharp example. The collection contains five short stories: "From a View to a Kill", "For Your Eyes Only", "Quantum of Solace", "Risico" and "The Hildebrand Rarity". It has "the only British dust jacket with any depiction of Bond: the eye in the peephole is his. Fleming made artist Richard Chopping paint it many times, until he was satisfied with the shape and, particularly, the color" (Biondi & Pickard, 46). It was made into the 1981 film starring Roger Moore and Carole Bouquet; the 1985 film A View to a Kill starring Moore, Christopher Walken, and Grace Jones and the 2008 film A Quantum of Solace starring Daniel Craig.

Original photographs, gelatin silverprints, ca. 29 x 21 cm & 21 x 29 cm. - Documentary seires following the day of a young pianist, at home, at school, with friends, following classes, exercising, training, performing and sleeping. Hilmar Pabel (* 17. September 1910 in Rawitsch/Provinz Posen; - 6. November 2000 in Rimsting am Chiemsee war ein deutscher Journalist, Fotograf und Initiator der Kindersuchaktion des Roten Kreuzes nach dem 2. Weltkrieg. Trotz seiner mehr oder weniger freiwilligen Mitwirkung an der Kriegspropaganda des Nationalsozialismus kann er als einer der wichtigsten deutschen Vertreter einer humanistisch-aufklärerischen Pressefotografie gelten. - Mit dem Fotografieren begann er 1924 im Alter von vierzehn Jahren. 1929 lernte er Fotografie an der Agfa Fotoschule in Berlin. Von 1930 bis 1935 studierte er Germanistik, Philosophie und Zeitungswissenschaft an der Friedrich-Wilhelm-Universität Berlin bei Prof. Emil Dovifat. Anschließend war er freiberuflich für verschiedene Zeitungen tätig, so etwa für die "Illustrirte Zeitung". - Im 2. Weltkrieg arbeitete er als Kriegskorrespondent und Fotograf einer Propagandakompanie. Unter anderem fotografierte er im Ghetto von Lublin. Diese Aufnahmen wurden - mit antisemitischen Bildunterschriften versehen - auch veröffentlicht. Am Ende des Krieges war er für kurze Zeit in Kriegsgefangenschaft. - 1945 arbeitete er für das Bayerische Rote Kreuz und war Mitinitiator von dessen Kindersuchaktion. In diesem Rahmen fotografierte er selbst über 2000 Kinder, um deren Eltern oder Verwandte ausfindig zu machen. 1947 entstand seine Bildfolge "Heimkehrer", für die er einen Kriegsheimkehrer mit der Kamera begleitete. Später arbeitete Pabel für die Illustrierte "Quick", für die er in die DDR, nach Indonesien, Japan, China, Taiwan, in zahlreiche afrikanische Staaten, in die UdSSR und in die USA reiste. 1961 erhielt er den Kulturpreis der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Photographie. 1961-1970 war er als Fotograf beim "Stern" beschäftigt. Für das Magazin schuf er eindringliche Bildserien im Vietnamkrieg ("Die kleine Orchidee", 1964 und "Thuan darf noch einmal leben", 1968) und beim sowjetischen Einmarsch in der Tschechoslowakei. Nach 1970 arbeitete er erneut als freier Fotograf. - Die Reitlehrerin, Kinder- und Pferdebuchautorin Andrea Pabel ist seine Tochter. KEYWORDS:germany/photo

      Diverse formaten. Op divers briefpapier. Alleen recto. Gesigneerd 'COJellema' en gedateerd 'Bilthoven, 8 juli 1960', 'Bonn, 4 augustus 1960', 'Bilthoven, 6 december 1960', 'Bilthoven, 24 maart 1961', 'Bilthoven, 11 april 1961', 'Bilthoven, 10 october 1961', 'Amersfoort, 10 december 1962', 'Amersfoort, 21 februari 1963', 'Amersfoort, 10 augustus 1963', 'Amersfoort, 23 X '63', 'Utrecht, 13 XI 1964', 'Utrecht, 9 maart 1967', 'Groningen, 12 X 1967', 'Groningen, 2 mei 1968', 'Tull en 't Waal, 1 IX 1969', '28 XI 70' en ongedateerd. Met een originele envelop.l Verzameling elegante brieven van de jonge dichter en essayist (1936-2003) aan de redactie van De Gids. Jellema biedt herhaaldelijk gedichten aan om in het gevestigde literaire maandblad te plaatsen. In 1960 debuteert hij in het herfstnummer van De Gids, volgens de planning: 'graag onder eigen naam publiceren'. Jellema's verloofde 'freule des Tombe' had zijn curriculum vitae al gestuurd: 'Uit de door haar verstrekte gegevens [...] kunt u nemen wat U daar voor geschikt acht'. Tevens over zijn eerste publicatie in boekvorm Klein Gloria (1961).Het aanvankelijke enthousiasme van de redactie voor Jellema's poëzie vermindert al binnen een jaar tijd. Op de eerste brief van Jellema van 8 juli 1960 schrijft redacteur Hoornik in grote letters: 'vóór', maar Bert Voeten rapporteert op 12 april 1961: 'Tegen - bizonder zwak en 'afgekeken''. Twee van deze beoordelingsrapporten van de redactie zijn bijgevoegd, met vijf doorslagen van brieven van redacteur Lekkerkerker aan Jellema, waarvan de eerste abusievelijk geadresseerd aan 'Zeer geachte Mevrouw'. In een zelfbewuste brief van 21 februari 1963 vraagt Jellema aan Voeten diens afwijzing te motiveren: 'Ik zou U namelijk willen vragen, mij te schrijven waarom deze gedichten de critiek niet konden doorstaan'. Bert Voeten noteert in rode balpen op Jellema's volgende brief: 'Die jongen gaat steeds slechter schrijven!'Bijgevoegd: Getypte brief van 'Jkvr. S.F. des Tombe' aan het literaire tijdschrift De Gids. 27,4 x 21,5 cm. Alleen recto. Gesigneerd en gedateerd 'Hengelo (O), 1 augustus 1960'.De freule antwoordt namens Jellema, die in het buitenland vertoeft. Zij geeft tevens een alinea met Jellema's cv: 'Behalve letterkunde en theologie zijn zijn liefhebberijen muziek en genealogie. Deze publicatie in de Gids betekent zijn debuut. De heer Jellema wenst onder zijn eigen naam te publiceren'.

        Four Quartets [signed]

      Faber & Faber, London 1960 - Number 202 of 290, quarto size, [54] pp., signed by the author. The Four Quartets is widely considered to be one of T. S. Eliot's (1888-1965) finest works, besides The Waste Land. Consisting of four interlinked meditations which blend Eliot's Anglo-Catholicism with mystical and philosophical works, drawing from both East and West. Contemporary Ezra Pound was immediately drawn to Eliot's work, drawing him into his circle and assisting him in publishing his work. Eliot's poems are marked by a strong influence from seventeenth century metaphysical poets and nineteenth century Symbolists. There is no finer way to read Eliot than in the fine letterpress editions printed by Giovanni Mardersteig (1892-1977) at Officina Bodoni, known for the highest quality craftsmanship. The present volume is printed in Dante type, one of the innovative types designed by Mardersteig after earlier Humanist typefaces. ***DESCRIPTION: Marbled paper boards, quarter white parchment, backstrip lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, fore- and bottom edges uncut, white endpapers, colophon with Officina Bodoni device printed in red, Dante type, handmade paper by Fratelli Magnani, Pescia, 12" x 8", [2 blank leaves], [1]-53, [54], [1 colophon], [2 blank leaves], limited edition (Mardersteig edition), number 202 of 290, signed by T. S. Eliot. Enclosed in publisher's original matching marbled paper slipcase. ***CONDITION: Near fine copy, with clean binding, a strong, square text block with solid hinges, straight corners, internally bright with no marks or foxing, and entirely free of prior owner markings; only the faintest hint of rubbing at the edges where the book has come in and out of the slipcase, otherwise without flaw, a stunning copy. The matching slipcase is near fine, strong and sturdy with minor overall rubbing. ***CITATION: Gallup, A43c. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        FATHER AND SON

      1960. Loose sheets; hole punches to margin (as for a binder). Some edgewear and some tearing to hole punches. Overall, a read but well-preserved unique item of gay erotic ephemera.. 146 pages [23pp + pp. 1-113 (lacking two or three sheets; two different sheets share the same number) + xii pp art]. Original typescript, typed on one side of 8 1/2 x 11" paper with three-hole punches to left margin. Includes 12 pages of art by Etienne [Dom Orejudos], in his 'Stephen' style of b/w line art. Art pages have browned, suggesting Kodak Verifax or Thermofax reproduction. This novel-length typescript features a rich variety of gay erotic and S/M scenes, many featuring incest; a series of dream sequences permits a wild series of sexual motifs, from such staples as leather, boots, Marines, bikers, uniforms, and jockstraps -- to golden showers, Nazis, castration, human pincushions, and devious & deviant bondage. All art is directly relevant to the story. Story begins: "What the hell are you looking at?" my father asked, as he caught me staring at his sweating bulging crotch. We were in our rowboat at the fishing camp in the North Woods." The father is a lineman nicknamed "Big Dick"; when Jim the son can't conceal his hard-on, the cat's out of the bag and they admit their mutual lust. Hijinks ensue: Dad talks about his experiences as a Marine, etc., and the two go at it . When he goes off to town, Jim has a series of dreams: a state trooper; motorcyclists in a S/M & bondage scene with a truck driver in the desert. Dad wakes Jim up for some Marine role-playing, boot worship, etc. More dreams follow: workman 'Hercules' enslaved by and tortured by Nazi Bruno; a prince is castrated on an altar; cowboys Ed and Tex in a flagellation scene; then Dad wakes him up for some more rough Marine-style training, before some lumberjacks arrive to gangbang Jim. Jim passes the test, and now the slave becomes the master. Part Two: Jimmy, now in charge, plays with Dick; burns off his pubic hair, subjects him to rough bondage and more. Dream sequence: Marines on a troop transport. Then, back in the real world: Ski, a Polish biker, shows up for more rough fun. (Numbered typescript ends here; the story continues with a 23-page section, pages lettered a-v; final, unlettered page states THE END). In this final section (following seamlessly from the previous), the guys go at it in wild and varied ways, including Ski lighting a candle that's up Jim's ass (this page seen in ETIENNE - EROTICA: Book 1 (The Tom of Finland Company, 1999); Ski binding father and son's penises together with rubber bands (a copy or variation of this seen in Falkon's HISTORIC COLLECTION OF GAY ART). Story ends with father and son diligently polishing Ski's boots. Quite the epic! Note: 2-3 pages are missing. This is a fairly rough typescript, with some corrections and white-out; two pages are assigned 48. Pages 61 and 82 are clearly missing; there are continuity gaps and/or text breaks. Page 57 may or may not be missing; Tex is whipping Ed hard, Ed seems to climax at the end of page 56, and near the beginning of page 58 Ed's creaming his pants is noted. If a page is missing, it's not noticeable. Former owner has placed this in a plain, unrelated dark red folder; small "Leather Fraternity" sticker on corner. The Leather Fraternity was for subscribers fo DRUMMER Magazine; perks included a free personal ad.

        Flower, Fist and Bestial Wail (First Edition, author's edition with original illustration by Bukowski)

      Eureka, CA: Hearse Press, 1960. First Edition. First Edition. One of no more than five "author's edition" copies with an original illustration by the author bound in. During the 1970s, Bukowski still had a number of copies of this book and decided to make between three and five unique copies by binding in original artwork or poetry--beginning a practice that would continue later with the author's Black Sparrow Press publications. The author's literary debut, a chapbook of poetry, preceded by two broadsides. The illustration in this copy shows an old man pointing his cane (or possibly gun) at a young boy and growling: "What do you know about sex?" Bukowski would go on to international fame and become one of the most prolific modern writers on the west coast, continuing an ethos begun by Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and John Fante. Publisher's illustrated saddle-stitched wrappers, 8.25 x 5.35 inches, 28 unnumbered pages. Fine. In a cloth clamshell box, Near Fine. Krumhansl 3.

        The Enemy Within.

      New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers,, 1960. Octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine, untrimmed. With the dust jacket. 14 pages of monochrome illustrations from photographs. Slight fading along board edges, tiny stain to top edge, an excellent copy with the jacket slightly rubbed at the ends and corners. First edition, first printing (copyright page signed "A-K", later printings are signed "D-K"), presentation copy inscribed on the front free endpaper, "To my old antagonist Senator Goldwater from his friend Bob Kennedy". This is a great cross-party association for Bobby Kennedy's first book, which concerns the McLellan Committee's enquiry into union and management corruption, focussing on Jimmy Hoffa's links to organised crime. Barry Morris Goldwater (1909–1998), who is mentioned on 22 pages in the book, was five-term United States Senator from Arizona (1953–65, 1969–87) and the Republican Party's nominee for President in the 1964 election. He is the politician most often credited for sparking the resurgence of the American conservative political movement in the 1960s. His landslide defeat to Lyndon B. Johnson opened the door for Johnson and a Congress dominated by Democrats to pass the Great Society programs. Goldwater returned to the Senate in 1969, by which time the leadership of the conservative movement had moved to Reagan. In 1974 Goldwater was the man who successfully urged Richard Nixon (whom he described as "the most dishonest individual I have ever met in my life") to resign at the height of the Watergate scandal. Goldwater retired in 1987, and was succeeded in office by John McCain.
