Dick's copy and boldly Signed by him in blue ink to Front Free Endsheet. Signed boldly in black ink by Dick to Front Free Endsheet.

The lectures were published in that year as New Maps of Hell: a Survey of Science Fiction, a serious but light-handed treatment of what the genre had to say about man and society. Regarded as an icon of SF criticism, Amis's work influenced a generation of Author's, including Dick. A wonderful association copy. & & A Very Good copy in a Very Good dustwrapper.

        Poems [Signed]

      Boston: Atlantic Monthly Press [Little, Brown and Company], 1960. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good/near fine. A Very Good or better copy of the First American Edition, first printing (light handling soil to boards, upper board corners bumped, small sunned area to the spine head), in a Near Fine dust jacket (spine lightly sunned, modest edge wear, tiny chipping at spine ends and corners, small rub at lower portion of the front panel near the flap turn, short closed tear at the top of the front flap turn and where the front panel joins the spine tail, expected age toning to the rear panel and to the flap edges --- in excellent condition for an unlaminated dust jacket of this age), SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS [IN GREEK] on the title page. Containing 127 pages, the book presents the first comprehensive collection of Seferis' Poetry published in the United States. While some of the verses selected for this book previously appeared in the 1948 translation of "The King of Asine", the balance of them appear here in English for the first time. A Greek Diplomat and Ambassador to the UK, and one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, George Seferis won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture", making him the first Greek ever to have received the Prize. In addition to their deep relationship as friends, each man held the other in high regard, and Warner's excellent translations of his work were a major factor in Seferis' winning the Prize. Signed copies of Seferis' works are extraordinarily scarce in any language, and our search of the of the auction records shows no signed copies of his works coming to auction in the last 55 years. Altogether a Very Good copy of an extremely difficult-to-find book from the first Greek author to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. RARE.

        GITANS AUX STES.-MARIES

      N.p.: The Photographer, c1960. First ed. Clergue, Lucian. Portfolio with 11 original b&w silver photographs, of varying sizes, including one folded, mounted to bifold art paper; includes a manuscript title page and colophon ( title page calligraphy in dark red crayon, colophon calligraphy in ink with the photographer's signature in dark red crayon). The colophon reads " Cette plaquette de ouze photographie de Lucien Clergue, consacrée aux gitans des Saintes Maries de la Mer et àSarah leur patronne a été tirée à 150 exemplaires par l'auteur. Ex no 115". All housed in a a plain black paper wrapper with "Gitans" in calligraphy in red crayon on the front wrapper. Near Fine. Lucien Clergue started his long career as a photographer following the street performers and Gypsies in the south of France. By 1960 he had already amassed a large body of work from the Camargue region, known is medieval times as a retreat for the Roma peoples, and specifically from its capital, Saintes Maries de la Mer. & In this portfolio, at least one of the images dates from 1955 and is one of the photographer's signature early images. Although many of these images have been reproduced in later books and exhibitions, this portfolio is never mentioned in his bibliography or official chronology, therefore the date is inexact. In later years, Clergue devoted most of his photographic attention to the female nude, yet the images from this body of work show him to have been a master of the social documentary roving camera. OCLC locates only two copies, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, and New York Public Library Research Library.

        Lady Chatterley's Lover

      Penguin, 1960, unpublished proof copy.. I am often asked what he rarest Penguin of all might be. This is a contender. In early 1960 Penguin editors decided to publish a batch of ten D.H. Lawrence titles to commemorate the 30th anniversary of his death. They had done something similar in 1950, and now wanted to be the publishers of all Lawrence's major works. This naturally included Lady Chatterley's Lover; now a practical consideration, with new legislation that as thought to make it easier to publish literary novels with 'difficult' subject matter. As was normal, the printers produced around a dozen proof copies, of which this is one. At this point however, the printers, Hazell Watson & Viney, decided that they could not subject their staff to the material contained in the book and withdrew. This meant that the planed August publication date was lost. Penguin made an announcement n the trade press that publication was delayed. Meanwhile, one of the file copies had found its way into the hands of a policeman, and then the Director of Public Prosecutions. It seemed the time for the DPP to test the new Obscene Publications Act. Penguin found a new printer eventually; Sir Isaac Pitman offered his own company, Western Printing Services, on a matter of principle, and the complete run of 200,000 copies of the first Penguin edition were printed and stored in a warehouse. The prosecution would proceed on the 'publication' of the book. Normally this simply meant that a book was published and the police would raid a convenient shop in Charing Cross Road. Penguin's founder Allen Lane did not want an innocent bookseller prosecuted as well and suggested that publication could be contrived by the simple expedient of two directors presenting two dozen copies to a policeman a Scotland Yard. This was agreed, and the handover took place. These copies, and the copies used by the judge and jury were all he normal Penguin edition, taken from the warehouse. The judge's own copy was auctioned at Sotheby's some years ago; it was sold with two sheets of typed paper giving the page references to all sex acts and obscenities used in the book, and these were underlined in the text. It also included a small silk purse, so the judge could carry his copy around discreetly. The prosecution took place, and Penguin won the case, and the warehoused copies were sold. An immediate reprint was planned that involved at least five separate printers, including Hazell Watson & Viney, and some two million copies were produced and sold within a few months. The first Penguin edition is easily found, as are the first reprints. The proof copy, which effectively launched the prosecution, is clearly a very rare thing. Around half a dozen copies are known to exist, from the dozen or so that would have been issued. These were normally used by editors and Penguin staff. So - it is rare, but also has played a part in British publishing and cultural history; a significant rarity, then. This copy is in good condition. The covers are simply paper, that is uncoated and has a few marks. 'Lawrence Lady C' is written on the spine in indelible ink. I would suspect that this is contemporary to the book, for he simple reason that the text is written up the spine; a convention Penguin adhered to until around 1960 - now all spines on almost all books read 'down'.

        [THE AFRICAN QUEEN] UNIQUE ORIGINAL ARTWORK BY JAMES AVATI FOR THE 1960 BANTAM PAPERBACK, THE AFRICAN QUEEN, BY C. S. FORESTER

      [Avati, James] [Forester, C. S.] UNIQUE ORIGINAL ARTWORK BY JAMES AVATI FOR THE 1960 BANTAM PAPERBACK, THE AFRICAN QUEEN, BY C. S. FORESTER. One of the few extant Avati paintings illustrating major works by major 20th century authors still available to commerce. 14 x 12 inches, executed in oil on board-mounted canvas, colors still bright and vivid, in strikingly fresh condition. Museum quality framed-and-matted to a dimension of 16 x 14 inches. Avati's original painting for the first paperback version of Salinger's CATCHER IN THE RYE (1953) recently sold for $21,510.00 at auction (October, 2010). His original painting for the first paperback version (1952) of Christopher Isherwood's GOODBYE TO BERLIN (auctioned July 2009) fetched $26,290.00. James Avati (1912-2005) was often called "The Rembrandt" of 1940s and 1950s paperback illustration. He popularized authors such as William Faulkner for the average reader with alluring cover art which sported extraordinary emotional impact. His brilliance in capturing human feeling: tension or pain, suggestiveness or lust, avarice or suspicion, compassion or devotion was unrivaled during the golden age of paperback illustration. He created a visual narrative that brought characters' tragedies and yearnings to life with a tough-minded gritty realism without any compromising sentimentality. In the primary reference book "The Paperback Art Of James Avati" (Piet Schreuders & Kenneth Fulton, 2005), this painting is illustrated on p. 160. The distinction of this painting may be obvious to those familiar with Avati's work: the lush jungle green landscape which surrounds the central figures is an unusually dynamic departure for Avati and his decision to interpret the novel's most iconic image, Charlie and Rose pulling the celebrated "African Queen" through the twisted, overwhelming jungle vines of the Ulanga River in German East Africa in an attempt to outfox the World War One German Imperial Forces, has produced something very special. John Huston's film version starring Humphrey Bogart (in his only Oscar-winning role) and Katharine Hepburn is one of the American Film Institute's 100 best films ever made. The novel itself is today, along with the Horatio Hornblower series, the best known and best loved of C. S. Forester's (1899-1966) lifetime achievement of more than fifty works of fiction. James Avati produced this painting for Bantam Books #A2111 in August of 1960. . Illus. by James Avati.
