        Mezhdunarodnyi iazyk Esperanto (grammatika, slovar' i kratkaia khrestomatiia) [The international language Esperanto (with grammar rules, a dictionary, and a short reader]

      self-published, Odessa 1960 - Small octavo (15 × 10.5 cm). Original string-bound printed wrappers; 48, [2] pp. Photo-reproduced manuscript and printed text. Owner signature to front wrapper; else very good. An unrecorded Soviet samizdat publication from Odessa, Ukraine, by one of two surviving members of the Sovetrespublikara Esperantista Unio, or Union of Soviet Esperantists, which existed from 1921 to 1937. In the 1920-1930s, Esperanto had been a popular pastime encouraged by writers and scientists such as Maxim Gorky, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, and Anatoly Lunacharsky. But in the course of the Stalinist Repressions, the Esperanto activists were accused of espionage, their belongings confiscated, and the members of the Central Committee executed. Vershinin survived, ostensibly by sheer luck: he happened to be away from Moscow when the arrests were made. After the 20th Congress of the Communist Party, in February 1956, which resulted in Khrushchev's disavoval of the Stalinist period, the first tentative attempts were made to reestablish Esperanto culture in the Soviet Union. Vershinin, now settled in Odessa, published his introduction as a manuscript" ("na pravakh rukopisi"), evidently for use among a growing circle of local Esperantists. He presents the history and goals of the language, outlines basic grammar rules, and concludes with a bibliography of primers and textbooks. A small dictionary is also included, photo-copied from an earlier publication. The reader contains short anecdotes and proverbs; a text on Zamenhof; excerpts of works by Stalin, Lenin, and the Esperantist Ivo Lapenna; a history of Esperanto in Odessa, the "cradle of Esperanto"; an excerpt in Esperanto of Pushkin's Eugene Onegin translated by N. Nekrasov; a text by Nikita Khrushchev ("Defendu Pacoj!"), and, importantly, the addresses of Soviet Esperanto libraries and circles, in places such as Tbilisi and Kazan'. Not in KVK, OCLC. Not at the Russian State or National Library. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Promotional Booklet for Jamie and Mardi-Gras Records. Circa 1960

      [No place] - Bradbound printed wrappers. 12.5" x 12.5". Light wear on the wrappers, very good or better; internally fine. Contains 27 inserts that consist of high gloss album cover art and the sleeve art for a few 7" records for music produced by Jamie Records and their "bargain" label Mardi-Gras Records (the cover lists several other small independent companies including Gone Records, Gone Latin, Goldisc, and End Records, most of which were owned or founded by George Goldner between 1957-1962). The first four inserts in the book are for the Duane Eddy album "Have Twangy Guitar Will Travel" and the sleeve art for three 7" records by Eddy, "Detour" (both mono and stereo) and "Yep!" Aside for one more Eddy album, and a few "easy listening" albums, almost all - certainly way more than half - consists of the art for Latin music, almost always identified in the title as "cha cha cha" music, including Joe Cuba and Orchestra, Sonny Rossi and the Concord Hotel Orchestra, La Playa Sextet, Al Castellanos, Johnny Conquet and Orchestra, and Emilio Reyes. Certainly rare, and probably unique documentation and an interesting evocation of Latin music in the early 1960s.

      London: Heinemann,, 1960. Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine white. With the dust jacket. Board edges faintly sunned and bumped. An excellent copy in a slightly rubbed jacket with a few minor nicks and creases to extremities. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by Coward to his friend Vivien Leigh on the front free endpaper: "Dear Darling, many many happy returns, love Noëlie", this copy deriving from her estate. A wonderful association - Coward was a long-time friend of that unparalleled thespian couple, Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier. He had launched Olivier's career by giving him the part of Victor Prynne in Private Lives in 1932, and later worked with Leigh in South See Bubble (1956) and Look After Lulu (1959).
