      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.

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

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.

        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.
