Near Fine in a Very Good, lightly stained dustwrapper with corners clipped but the price present. Author's first book, made into a film.

        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.

Mostly white rear panel has rub and an original $3.95 book store sticker on lower left side of rear panel. Only 5,000 copies of the original first edition were published; most went to libraries, hence the scarcity of first editions that escaped that fate. Of those that did not wind up in a library many have been rebound, restored or touched up. This is the original, unsophisticated book and jacket. ; 8vo; 296 pages .

        Rabbit, Run

      Knopf, 1960. First Edition (first printing). The first of the Rabbit books -- the story of Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom -- a one time high-school basketball star whose life changes with the pop culture and news of the day. Updike revisited Angstrom once every decade -- in so doing, he presented a sense of the entire last half of twentieth century America. The last two novels in the series (RABBIT IS RICH and RABBIT AT REST) each separately won the Pulitzer Prize. In this first volume, Rabbit decides on a whim to leave his wife. Near Fine/Near Fine -- very little of the dust jacket fading for which this volume is notorious -- a bright and clean copy. Inscribed by Updike on the front free end paper, as follows: "For Vince, John Updike." This book is from the library of the late noted Oklahoma book collector Larry Owens. . Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Zwei Gramm Licht

      Zurich: Interbooks, (1960). Very close to fine in a fine jacket; uncommon thus.. First Edition. Quarto. Afterward by Georg Ramseger. Haunting images of midfifties Europe shot in a dark lush gravure. While the tone of the book is set by the first spread: a Munich shantytown muddied in the aftermath of war, the cinematic swagger of Wicki's work is enough to mitigate what might otherwise be mistaken for a survey of destruction. Little-known book (at least in North America) given its due by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. (Parr / Badger, v1, 215; Auer 400).
