        Noah's Ark

      (London: Bancroft & Co, 1961. Kubasta, Vojtech. Quarto. 8pp., plus a pop-up at the end of the book designed by the acclaimed Czech artist and paper engineer Vojtech Kubasta. The book opens with a retelling of the Genesis chapters that chronicle Noah and the floodm and this is illustrated with black & white head-and tailpieces, and depictions of Noah addressing the animals inside the front cover. With a stunning, colorful, three dimensional pop-up of the ark, showing a variety of animals working on it with hand tools. An unusual feature of this pop-up is a volvelle that shows a changing animal head atop a mamalian body, with a similar arrangement for a bird just beside it. On the rear of the volvelle, we see that a monkey is spinning this wheel, adding a touch of whimsy to this tableaux. The book's three-fold board covers open flat, allowing the pop-up scene to stand up on its own. In a recent New York Times feature on Kubasta, paper engineer Robert Sabuda, who was inspired by Kubasta's books at an early age, described Kubasta's work as unusual in that he was able to create astonishingly complex, detailed scenes with a single sheet of paper. His pop-up books are also known for their bold, rich color and were printed in Czechoslovakia on special pre-war presses at the state-run publishing house Artia. An unusually very fine copy bound in bright, illustrated boards depicting Noah and his many charges navigating the waters of the deluge. (Grimes, William, "Wizard Who Made Art Jump Off the Page," New York Times, Jan. 31, 2014).

        Egy kocsivásárlás története 9 képen. F?szerepl?k (föszereplök): Cserni Ferenc, Trabant-Limousine, és még sokan mások. [A Story of a Car-Buy in Nine Acts. Starring: Ferenc Cserni, Trabant-Limousine, and Others.]

      Dated in 1961 - Drawn, hand-coloured portfolio with 12 images. In original wrappers. An ironic cartoon about "buying" new car, a Trabant in the Socialist Hungary. Beside the casual jokes about buying a new car like problems of parking, unaccustomed measures, or the addiction to the new car, it gives an ironic insight to the car buying experiences in planned economy of a Socialist country. In the Eastern Block only those cars were available for the people that were produced within the Block for the domestic market, like the East German car, the Trabant. A person who wanted to buy a car had to submit an application for the vehicle by post (image 3), and than wait, most cases ages, until the car was allocated by a committee, and the person received the "car-buying permission". In this story the application turned back (image 4), but for some unknown reason - which was also common phenomena of the system - the buyer receives a call from the distribution-site, that they are expecting him to show up for his "allocation" (image 5). In such cases the buyer had to bring cash and passes to get the car (image 6), and he had no possibility to choose the type or the colour (image 7). With handwritten note on front cover, "received as a gift from my colleagues at the department on 10. 02. 1961.". In fine condition. Drawn, hand-coloured portfolio with 12 images.

        Weegee by Weegee

      1961 - WEEGEE. Weegee by Weegee: An Autobiography. New York: Ziff-Davis, (1961). Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket. $3000.First edition of Weegee's colorful autobiography, profusely illustrated with 116 black-and-white photographs, boldly inscribed to a member of the family that founded Konica cameras in the 1870s, "To Mr. R. Sugiura-You make wonderful cameras-Weegee, May 1962."Polish-born Arthur Felig was dubbed "Ouija" by New York City cops in the 1930s for his uncanny ability to appear at crime scenes before the police did. A tabloid-news photographer for the Daily News and other newspapers, he "had a gift for highlighting the unexpected, stylish and even humorous aspects of dark scenes". Weegee's classic film-noir style". is credited with helping create American tabloid journalism" (New York Times). Weegee was first and always "a news photographer, and if we accept the definition of poetry as "˜news that stays news,' he was a poet with a camera" (Roth, 118). Weegee by Weegee recalls the famed photographer's early years and features an account of Hollywood's adaptation of his book Naked City. This rare association copy was inscribed by Weegee to a descendant of the Japanese pharmacist who founded Konica in 1873, predating Kodak's entry into photography. Inscribed copies of his autobiography are quite scarce.Book fine; light edge-wear to bright near-fine dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Children's Hour (Original photograph for the 1961 film)

      Los Angeles: United Artists, 1961. Vintage oversize, double weight, borderless still photograph from the 1961 film, a remake of Wyler's 1936 film "These Three," both based on the 1934 play by Lillian Hellman, about two female teacher's at an all girls school accused of having an affair. Nominated for five Academy Awards. Shot, struck, and mounted by the film's still photographer, Bob Willoughby, with his ASMP rubber stamp on the verso. Full provenance available. After studying with Saul Bass at the Kann Institute of Art in Los Angeles, Willoughby began working as a photographer for magazines such as "Life," "Look," and "Harper's Bazaar" in the late 1940s. It was while on assignment covering Judy Garland in a "A Star is Born" that Willoughby's ability to capture his subjects' spontaneity, humor, and vulnerability, resulting in images that were far different from more traditional film stills, came to Hollywood's attention and earned him his first "Life" magazine cover. Willoughby spent the next 20-plus years working as a set photographer for every major studio, documenting some of most important films of the era and creating intimate portraits of some of Hollywood's greatest celebrities. Technically and stylistically innovative, Willoughby built the first remote radio-controlled cameras used on film sets, pioneered the use of the "silent blimp" for 35mm cameras, and created brackets to mount his cameras directly over the movie cameras to capture the same images. Willoughby moved his family to County Cork, Ireland in 1972, working on only a handful of films through the late 1970s and early 1980s, though he would continue to photograph, exhibit, and publish books for the remainder of his life. The stills in this collection were given by Willoughby to friends in Kilbrittain, Ireland just prior to his move to Vence, France in 1989, where he would remain until his death in 2009. Perhaps more than any other photographer, Willoughby is responsible for creating the the look of mid-century celebrity and moviemaking in the popular imagination, with his images printed in magazines literally every week of his career. But beyond being prolific, Willoughby's legacy rests with his ability capture the essence of the actors he photographed, as well as the films with which those photographs were associated. As Sydney Pollack said in his introduction to Willoughby's autobiography, "Sometimes a filmmaker gets a look at a photograph taken on his own set and sees the 'soul' of his film in one still photograph. It's rare, but it happens. It happened to me in 1969, the first time I looked at the work of Bob Willoughby during the filming of "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" Willoughby's photographs are in the permanent collections of ten museums, including The National Portrait Galleries in Washington, DC and London, the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Tate Modern. 13.5 x 9.25 inches (34 x 23 cm). Near Fine.
