        Bedtime for Frances [Inscribed]

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1960. First Edition. Illustrated by Garth Williams (best known for Charlotte's Web) and inscribed by the author, perhaps to the child who inspired the book. First Printing of the first title in Hoban's famed Frances series of six children's books, named by the American Library Association as a Notable Children's Book ("the best of the best") for 1960. Tall, wide 8vo: 16 leaves, including illustrated title page and 18 further illustrations, many full-page. Publisher's black cloth spine, illustrated paper-covered boards, first state dust jacket priced $2.50. Inscribed, signed, and dated by Hoban on front fly leaf: For / Young Fawcett [Frances?] - / An invaluable guide / and pocket companion / containing / complete instructions / for / getting young ladies / into bed / - from / a man of experience // Russ Hoban // 5/22/60. About Fine (several small, shallow nicks to front cover's leading edge, light soiling to back cover), Near Fine, very lightly restored jacket, involving neither lettering nor design (spine panel mildly age-toned, light overall dust soiling, several small closed tears, trivial chip—again, involving neither lettering or design). Copies of Bedtime for Frances in collectible condition are the scarcest in the series. Those in the first state dust jacket, as is our copy, are scarcer still, and copies in the first state dust jacket signed by Hoban are almost unobtainable. At the time of this listing, we can locate no other copies worldwide. "Here is the coziest, most beguiling bedtime story in many a day." (Kirkus Reviews) Hoban's third book, introducing the character of Frances, widely considered a children's classics. In this and other books in the Frances series, Hoban established a trademark, the lively internal monologues of his main character, as she works through such everyday situations as bedtime, a new baby sister, running away, and an unreliable friend. In this first Frances book, the little badger adroitly delays her bedtime with requests for kisses and milk, and concerns over tigers and giants and things going bump in the night. Explaining his inspiration for the book, Hoban recalled, "Our next-door neighbors had a daughter who always found ways of stalling at bedtime. Though I didn't use any of her specific stalls in the book, this little girl was the reason that Bedtime for Frances came about." Was the book inscribed to that next-door neighbor? It's tempting to think so. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus

      London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1960. 1st Edition. Dark Blue Cloth. Fine/Good. Original translation. 5th or later Printing 207 Pp + Publisher's Catalog At Rear, Dated 1959. 1960 Reprint, The Eighth Impression Of The Book First Published 1922, With A Few Corrections In 1933. This Example With The Translation Uniquely Corrected In Pencil Throughout By A Rhodes Scholar Circa 1963-4. The Translation Corrects Obvious, Clear Abscombe's Mistranslations And Omissions To Such A Degree That It Constitutes A New, Corrected Translation. The Translator, William Zaltonoga, A Champion Oxford Boxer While A Rhodes Scholar, Appears To Understand That Wittgenstein Is Discussing How One Thinks About Objects Of One's Own Private Thoughts. Wittgenstein May Be Seen To Make Highly Pointed Conversational Observations Which Tear The Structure Of Consensual Academic Philosophical Thought With Jab After Jab, Demolishing Conventions, Not By Creating A Complete Philosophy But By Identifying How One May Think More Exactly On Matters Of Philosophy And Science And Mathematics, More Exactly Than Historical Consensus Demands, And, By Implication, Showing How Basic Concepts In The Mind Of The Reader Are Woefully Undeveloped If Not Juvenile. The Text In This Translation Makes Such Pointed Observations That It Questions The Basic Intellectual Background And Abilities Of The Intended Audience- Future Educators, Civil Service Managers And Political Policy Makers Educated At Elite Institutions. It Is Understandable How Academics Had Not Previously Bothered With A More Correct Translation, As The Book Is Virtually Unteachable Beyond The Text Itself, Unless One's Teacher Is Smarter Than Wittgenstein, Who Wrote It For The Students. An Important Addition To The Wittgenstein Canon, Both For Identifying The Inexplicable Inadequacies Or Intentional Dumbing-Down By His Translators, And For The Exactness Of The New Translation Offered Printed Here But Entirely Redone By Pears And Mcguiness, Perhaps Not As Well Done As Here By Zaltonaga. [For Another Good Example Of A Post-World War I Mistranslation, Also Somewhat Political, But In This Instance Translation From The Russian, Compare Any English Translation Of Zamyatin's "We" To The 1991 First Translation Into English By A Native Russian Speaker, Raduga Publishers, Moscow, 1991, Where The One Is Almost Unrecognizable From The Other, As Literature. ]

        Summoned by Bells

      Murray 1960 - Leather-bound, top edge gilt and limited to 125 signed and numbered copies. Some rubbing to extremities with a minor bump to bottom of front board. An excellent and clean association copy with ‘Douglas Cleverdon’ Ex Libris label affixed to half title. The book was given to Douglas Cleverdon; a radio producer, bookseller, publisher and author as a 60th birthday present in 1963. Among the books Cleverdon published was Gill’s Art and Love and an edition of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner with and introduction and illustrations by David Jones. From 1939 - 1969 he worked for the BBC. During the war he devised The Brains Trust, and as a producer, mainly of radio features on the Third Programme, he commissioned and broadcast poets (including Betjeman), playwrights, composers and writers, giving a first hearing to Flanders and Swann and persuading Dylan Thomas to come up with Under Milk Wood, which Cleverdon produced in 1954 and featured Richard Burton in the role of First Voice. Accompanying the book is a letter from ‘Theodore’; possibly a personal friend, although the references in the letter showing familiarity with John Betjeman and Jock Murray (publisher) suggest that it may have been somebody that Cleverdon had worked with previously.

        Dolomiti (senza titolo)

      1960. Harold Miller Null nacque nel 1916 a Filadelfia, Pennsylvania. Negli anni della sua giovinezza intraprese studi di medicina, in seguito interrotti, viaggiò molto sia nel suo paese che all'estero. Durante la guerra finì sul fronte orientale, in Asia, come ausiliario nei servizi sanitari, successivamente si impiegò nel corpo diplomatico del suo paese. Nel 1955 lasciò il servizio e seguì un programma di studi classici a Roma. Gli ultimi anni della sua vita li ha trascorsi in un paesino della campagna umbra, San Martino dei Colli PG. In Italia conobbe l'opera del pittore ed incisore Giorgio Morandi, e questo esercitò una profondissima influenza sulla sua successiva opera fotografica. L'amico Riccardo Bacchelli così né parla nella presentazione del suo volume Rive di Po 2: "Anzitutto mi par da avvertire che Harold Null rifiuta, per principio artistico ed estetico, ogni partito e risorsa che non appartengano alla tecnica dell'obbiettivo.... Quindi, non manipolazioni,.... non luci artificiali, non ritocchi. La sua tecnica mette il sommo dell'abilità nell'essere semplice e non artifiziata.... Mira al rilievo e al disegno mediante la chiarezza dei contorni e la forza dei contrasti d'ombra e luce... È un vero disegno fotografico di volumi e rilievi e ritmi e composizioni...." Le sue opere sono rappresentate nelle collezioni permanenti del Museum Art e del Metropolitan di New York, come nei musei d'arte di Cleveland e Filadelfia. Al retro il timbro di H. M. Null

        For Your Eyes Only. (James Bond short stories) Includes 'Quantum of Solace'.

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1960. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. Publisher's black cloth-effect paper over boards in pictorial dustwrapper. A very fine copy of the book, which appears unread, in a near fine example of the jacket. There is some very mild toning to the spine, and the front flap has some accidental creasing, but in general terms the laminated jacket is free from the scuffs and scratches, particularly to the rear panel, that beset this copy (being the only Bond novel issued in a glossy wrapper). A most superior and attractive copy, with no inscriptions or price-clipping, housed in an elegant leather clamshell box. Offerred in partnership with 007 bibliographer James M. Pickard.The first selection of James Bond short stories, which was followed by 'Octopussy', 'The Living Daylights', and 'The Property of a Lady'. This collection includes 'For Your Eyes Only', 'From A View to a Kill', 'Quantun of Solace', all of which, although heavily rewritten, were filmed as part of the 007 movie series. Also included are'Risico' and 'The Hildebrand Rarity'.
