        TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

      Philadelphia and New York: J.B. Lippincott Company, 1960. First edition. 8vo, publisher’s original brown boards backed in green cloth and lettered in dark brown on the spine. Later, modern rendering of the original dustjacket in perfect facsimile. 296 pp. Fine internally with only very light mellowing to the boards and spine. VERY SCARCE FIRST EDITION, Harper Lee’s timeless novel is one of the more sought after items in modern American literature. Lee’s first and only novel would win her the Pulitzer Prize and captured the heart of an entire nation. It would go on to win acclaim all over the world. Perhaps Margaret Mitchell is the only other American author to achieve such notoriety for writing a single book, but quite unlike Mitchell’s grand and sweeping drama, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is warm and personal, human in scope yet vast in implication.

        Typescript of "The Mirror in the Hall of Ebony"

      Undated. A one-page prose poem, typed, and signed "Clark Ashton Smith/Auburn, California." This version of the prose poem differs in a number of particulars from the published version, which was included in The Abominations of Yondo (Arkham House, 1960) and Poems in Prose (Arkham House, 1965). Previously folded in thirds but now in a custom binder, bearing the bookplate of horror writer Stanley Wiater, from whose library this came. Fine, with a letter laid in to Wiater from Roy Squires, the noted science fiction collector and dealer, from whom Wiater purchased it. Squires' lengthy letter comments extensively on the appallingly high prices "being asked -- and paid -- for the more desirable Arkham House books," in 1972, and then goes on to justify the high price Wiater had just paid for the Clark Ashton Smith manuscript, and says that he knows of only four prose poem manuscripts by Clark Ashton Smith in existence -- this one; one that he himself still had; and two that Smith's widow had at that time. A rare typescript by one of the most important American horror writers of the 20th century, with a long, illuminating letter from one of the great collectors and dealers in the field, and from the library of a horror writer who has been a three-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award, given by the Horror Writers of America. .

EDITION: Arts Inc., New York, a Golden Griffin Book, in English with contributions by George Grosz who selected most of the illustrations, edited principally by Herbert Bittner, quarto, 285 x 224 mm (11.22 x 8.82 inches), issued in the fall of 1960 - NORA MIRMONT: artist and educator, married name, Hambüchen; later resident of Lloyd Harbor, New York; first exhibition of oil paintings noted in February 13, 1954 New Yorker; artist prize at Heckscher Museum named the Nora Mirmont Hambeuchen Award: Museum of Modern Art has an artist file for her in archives. Harvard has in their Grosz archives 6 letters from Nora Hambüchen to Grosz (1955-57), with also correspondence from her husband, William Joseph Hambüchen (no. 163). Getty Research Institute has in their Grosz archives a mimeograph of "George Grosz' Interregnum by Nora Mirmont" along with other materials on the film (Grosz / Series II). GROSZ ADDRESS: a quarter mile from Heckscher Museum, site of Nora Mirmont's talk. One of their prized holdings is the Grosz painting, "Eclipse of the Sun" (1926). LETTER: An effusive thank you note handwritten in pen & violet ink on the artist's stationary with its Huntington address heading and facing black, gray and white woodcut vignette, addressed to Nora Mirmont with 5 short lines in German, done in fine style over one side of the 207 x 295 mm (8.15 x 11.61 inches) stationary sheet. Salutation is, "Liebe Nora" and note; "Vielen Herzlichen Dank / stets / Dein after Lehrer" (Many thanks, for always your teacher). He has carefully signed with his personal name, underscored with his characteristic intersecting perspective lines with punctuating dots, the 25 mm high capital G with an inner spiral flourish, the r, as a capital, strongly made with running feet. LECTURE MIMEOGRAPH: 5 full pages, about 255 lines, typed on one side only, clear and bright, pages fine, attached with a staple, heading with Heckscher Museum address and lecture title; "Introduction to the film, Interregnum, featuring the drawings of George Grosz", delivered by Nora Mirmont Monday, January 15, 1962 as part of the art education series, 'Tips on Painting'. "George Grosz' Interregnum" is a 29-minute documentary film about Germany between the World Wars, featuring George Grosz' drawings, and narrated by Lotte Lenya. It was produced by Altina and Charles Carey and released in 1960 by Educational Communication Corp, receiving a nomination for an Academy Award for 'Best Documentary Short Film'. Her lecture begins by criticizing the film for manipulating the historical record. "What you are going to see are the stark, terrifying, and superb drawings of George Grosz. But what has been done with them and what you are going to hear along with it will be strictly out of Hollywood's sense of drama." She introduces her main theme with, "I am concerned to present to you a balanced picture of a great artist who was my friend and teacher". Page 2 is an interesting exposition of Grosz' thoughts about satire and why he later was conflicted about the form and even denigrated it. It includes memories of conversations with Nora Mirmont. Pages 3-4 have Nora Mirmont's own English translation of the excerpt, "The artist enters his studio", from "A Little Yes and a Big No". Her translation, which reads very well, begins; "Yes, this is my room, this is my world. Yet at the same time it is like the shell of an oyster that closes quickly, or the house of a sensitive snail." Also on p. 4 is her reminiscence about the initial public response to the "Stick Men" paintings with an insider's view of their creation. Page 5: an excerpt from a letter Grosz wrote students at the Cleveland Institute of Art. In essence, it is a lucid exposition of his aesthetic. BOOK: with presentation by Nora Mirmont for recipient-O -, signed Nora, dated October 1960. Pagination: Confirmed complete, 160 pages with 114 illustrations on 108 plates, 96 numbered b/w plates of 1911-53 works, 84 full-page, and with 6 unnumbered color plates of 1928-1958 works. Texts include: an introductory essay with notes, "The Two Worlds of George Grosz", pp. 11-28, a Grosz essay, "On My Drawings" (reprinted from 1944), pp. 29-32, and a comprehensive bibliography (to 1960), pp 34-43.

        Ikari to Kanashimi no Kiroku / Record of Anger and Sadness

      Tokyo: Kawade Shobo Shinsha, 1960. Near fine in photo-illustrated wrappers, publisher's obi (darkened), complete with the publisher's thin acetate overlay (slightly shrunk as usual, and split vertically). Very important book in the history of Japanese photographic literature.. First Edition. Small quarto. An early protest book - likely the first major example - by a photographer best-known for his photographs of Japan's snow country. The book documents riots and protests resulting from the ratification of the 1960 Security Treaty between Japan and the United States. At the time Hamaya was one of Japan's leading photographers, yet these images were censored from the mainstream press, leading to the creation of small, independent, and inexpensively produced volumes that constitute the beginning of the protest book culture in Japanese photography. Hamaya's photograph of left-wing leader Michiko Kanba, brutally beaten to death by the police, was later published by Life magazine and was directly responsible for his subsequent inclusion in Magnum.

      Vancouver: Nevermore Press & Heavenly Monkey, 1960 & 2003. Unbound as issued in box. Fine. Unbound as issued in box. 13 of 50 copies which are numbered and signed by the original publisher, Robert Reid. Kuthan';s Menagerie of Interesting Zoo Animals was originally published in 1960 by the Nevermore Press, but only 60 copies of the edition of 130 were ever bound. Forty-three years later the remaining sheets were acquired by the Heavenly Monkey Press. They then reissued the fifty remaining complete copies from the original edition. This reissue includes the original unbound sheets printed by the Nevermore Press, a new foreword by the original publisher, in a custom-made clamshell box. It was decided that for the reissue, a replica of the original half-leather binding would not be attempted. Instead the sheets have been left unbound in the livre d';artiste manner with a new paper wrapping and an attractive box to house the collection.

        THE BATTLES OF CONCORD AND LEXINGTON COLLOTYPE REPRODUCTIONS, HAND- STENCILED IN COLOR FROM THE SET OF ORIGINAL COPPERPLATE ENGRAVINGS [portfolio title].

      Boston: Goodspeed's Book Shop, 1960. - Four collotype illustrations, each sheet measuring 16 x 22 inches. Laid into original grey printed paper portfolio. Some slight wrinkling to the plates and portfolio cover. Near fine. From an edition limited to 225 sets, issued by Goodspeed's Book Shop in Boston. Shortly after the engagement at Lexington and Concord, the Governor's Guard of the Connecticut Militia (under the command of Benedict Arnold) was dispatched to Massachusetts to take part in the siege of Boston. Among these forces was Ralph Earl, a portrait painter, and Amos Doolittle, an engraver. During their three weeks at Cambridge, Doolittle and Earl visited the battlegrounds at Lexington and Concord, and questioned participants in the battles. Earl made sketches based on these accounts, which were then engraved by Doolittle and published in New Haven in 1775. These are among the rarest American engravings from the Revolution. This facsimile was made from the set of four original engravings in the collection of the Connecticut Historical Society. Doolittle would go on to a long career as a significant engraver in Connecticut. The four prints are entitled: 1) "The Battle of Lexington, April 19th, 1775. Plate I." 2) "Plate II. A view of the Town of Concord." 3) "Plate III. The Engagement at the North Bridge in Concord." 4) "Plate IV. A View of the South Part of Lexington." Scarce, and a significant visual record of a fateful and important moment in American history.

Truman's account of his experiences after leaving the White House. Copy #881 of 1000 SIGNED by the author on the limitation page. It is likely that less than the stated 1000 were published as we have personally seen close to 200 examples of the unbound limitation sheet that were signed.

        The Lord of the Rings, 1960 Set By Readers Union, with Dustjackets

      London: Readers Union, 1960. First Edition. Original Cloth. J.R.R. Tolkien. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A beautiful looking set of this unusual presentation of Tolkien's trilogy. Not for sale to the general public, limited to members of the Readers Union only. Published by the Readers Union in 1960 with the permission of George Allen & Unwin Ltd, London. The books are in Near Fine condition, with no names, writing, and only the lightest offsetting to the endpapers. The gutters of the endpapers look to have been reinforced by the original owner, probably when they were purchased, as there is no evidence of the binding being loose or any seperation. Housed in the original dustjackets, all are Near Fine condition, with the Two Towers having a couple of tiny areas of loss to the top and bottom spine folds, and the bottom of the flap folds. None of the dustjackets are price clipped, showing almost no edgewear or tanning, except the noted areas of the Two Towers. These unusual dustjackets are in fabulous condition. The jackets show no tanning whatsoever to the spines or edges. All maps are tipped in at the rear, and in excellent condition. No tears or extra folds, only the slightest of browning mainly at the fold areas. This is the set that features a line drawing by an unnamed artist for Readers Union of 'Sauron's Eye'. The only set to have this particular and very unusual dustjacket. Scarce in this lovely condition. Includes a custom slipcase for display and protection of these beautiful books. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Near Fine / Near Fine.
