        Catch – 22

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1961. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original blue cloth. Signed by Joseph Heller on the title page. Near fine in a bright near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A superior example. "Catch-22, Joseph Heller's first and best-known novel, depicts a military world turned upside down. In Heller's World War II, a supplies manager has more power than a general, and anyone seeking a discharge on the grounds of insanity is declared sane enough to keep on fighting. When the novel appeared in 1961, World War II veterans appreciated its satire of the military bureaucracy and chaos of war. By the mid-1960's, it had become a cult classic among counterculture activists for its biting indictments of war. Many consider the novel to be the definitive statement of the modern antiwar position. The phrase 'Catch-22', symbolizing the absurdity of all institutional logic, has become a permanent part of our language" (NYPL Books of the Century 177).

        Cleopatra (Archive of original screenplays for the 1963 film)

      Los Angeles, CA: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1961. Archive of four original draft scripts, including a post-production script, for the 1963 film. Also included is a vintage 8 x 10 black-and-white single white still photograph of Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra. Twentieth Century-Fox's ambitious, bank-breaking venture, based on the histories written by Plutarch, Suetonius, and Appian, and also based on the Carlo Maria Franzero book, set in 48 BC in Egypt. Cleopatra (Taylor), Queen of Egypt, falls hopelessly in love with rival-turned-ally, Julius Caesar (Harrison). When Caesar meets his fate at the hands of his political cabinet, the queen joins forces with the brazen drunkard, Marc Antony (Burton) to conquer Rome. The film set the studios back roughly thirty million dollars, the most for any film production to date. At the start, Rouben Mamoulian was signed on as director, and after finding the project too profound, coupled with no legitimate screenplay yet written, he resigned early in 1961. Joseph L. Mankiewicz, who had just directed Elizabeth Taylor and Katherine Hepburn in the 1959 film, "Suddenly, Last Summer," was hired to take Mamoulian's place, directing the film to completion, but he would eventually denounce his association with the film. Alfred Hitchcock was approached before Mankiewicz, but production for the rotund auteur's 1963 film, "The Birds," was already taking flight. In the end, the film ran for nearly six hours, originally intended as two separate pictures, each three hours long. TCF decided against this, editing the entire cut to four hours. These cuts, actress Elizabeth Taylor jested, were the fatal flaws of a film more feasible in theory than execution. Taylor and Burton's first on-screen pairing, their love-hate relationship already culminating, and their characters' relationship foreshadowing their real-life romance. Set in Egypt, shot on location in Spain, Italy, England, and the USA. Winner of several Academy Awards (Best Cinematography, Art Direction, Costume Design, Effects). Included in the archive: Three First Draft scripts, dated 2/10/61, 4/5/61, and 5/9/61, the first two being just over 60 pages each, with a credit for screenwriter Buchman (scripts likely not utilized by director Mankiewicz, who tended to script as he shot), and the third script with a credit for screenwriter MacDougall, weighing in at over 300 pages, likely the the last incarnation of the story as a script and the one used during production. Annotated post-production script detailing cuts for release of the film in Italy and for international release, noting Reels 1 through 15, and covering only the first half of the film. The script ends with INTERMISSION. Impressive in its scope and one of the most visually stunning films ever, "Cleopatra" was for years a large and beautiful thorn in the side of Twentieth Century-Fox, and original ephemera for the film is scarce. These are the only scripts for the film we have handled, representing a look at the small but vital role a script has in a visually, fiscally, and physically immense production. Collation details available upon request.

        For the New Intellectual

      Random House, 1961 A fine first edition in a near fine dust jacket, inscribed by Ayn Rand on the half title to Dorothy Austin "with congratulations for your courage." The recipient of this inscription may be the same Dorothy Austin who was an ordained Episcopal minister who taught at the divinity and medical schools at Harvard, and became a master of Lowell House at Harvard with her same sex partner, a Harvard professor. The reference to "her courage" may refer to her public openness about her sexual orientation long before it was widely accepted by her church and the world at large. Ayn Rand was critical of homosexuality, although she said her views were personal and not a matter of her Objectivist philosophy. First Printing stated on the copyright page. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase.. Inscribed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine.

        The Winter of Our Discontent

      - The Viking Press, New York, 1961. Blue cloth over boards, silver title to spine on black background, blind-stamped publisher’s device to front board; pictorial dust wrapper designed by Elmer Hader, lettering by JeanYee Wong and black and white photograph of the author on the lower cover taken by William Ward Beecher; 8vo. First edition. Taken from the jacket, "This new novel will probably surprise even his [Steinbeck’s] warmest admirers. Instead of being set in the Far West, the scene of most of his books, this one takes place on the Northeastern sea board; instead of depicting simple, uneducated people, this deals chiefly with a well-born, well-to-do society with long traditions behind it. But it deals with it in a way that reveals the continuity within Steinbeck’s diversity; through the lives of one family and their friends, he has taken that society apart, shown its frightening shams and shortcomings, and measured it against true human decency. The result is a novel in its very dfferent way as powerful as anything he has done, and certain to stand as a major work in the Steinbeck canon". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Nude on the Moon [Moon Dolls] (Original poster for the 1961 film)

      Los Angeles, CA: J.E.R. Pictures, 1961. Original one sheet poster for the 1961 film. A rare artifact from the second of eight nudism-related films produced and directed by the prolific sexploitation director Doris Wishman. Working with a large sum of inherited money, two scientists build a rocket to take them to the Moon. Once there, they discover that the Moon's surface is covered with lush, tropical vegetation and giant golden nuggets. The astronauts are soon captured, however, by a colony of telepathic lunar nudists (who are actually topless rather than completely nude). Much of the film deals with the men's efforts to collect data documenting their discovery and well as with the burgeoning romance between the younger of the two astronauts and the queen of the Moon people. On their return, they realise that the most important evidence, the camera, has been left behind. 27 x 41 inches (105 x 89 cm). Rolled as issued. Near Fine.

        Paris nous appartient [Paris Belongs to Us] (Original French moyenne poster for the 1961 film)

      Paris: Ajym Films, 1961. Original French moyenne poster (affiche) for the 1961 French film. Winner of the 1962 Sutherland Trophy for best first or second feature by the British Film Institute. Scarce, with only two copies found in Ciné-ressources. A labor of love released after numerous financial woes and a three-year production schedule, "Paris Belongs to Us" did not cause the same stir as did the debuts of Rivette's "Cahiers du Cinéma" peers, though today it is seen as a film with an importance on the same level as the first works of Truffaut, Godard, and Chabrol. Rivette retained his post at the journal throughout the 1960s, even serving as editor from 1963 to 1965, as the French New Wave was in full swing. It wasn't until the start of the 1970s that Rivette's filmmaking career took off, but the sensibilities and aesthetic values behind beloved masterpieces such as "Celine and Julie Go Boating" and "La belle noiseuse" are well on display in an exceptional first effort. Rivette's career is generally defined by his adherence to long-form storytelling and a sense of structural reflexivity. This first feature serves as a perfect preamble to the epics that followed, offering early insight into his sense for both larger scope and narrative complexity. At a confident 140 minutes, the runtime of "Paris Belongs to Us" is roughly 40 minutes longer than any other first feature of the French New Wave (though it pales in comparison to his later work, particularly the twelve-hour "Out 1"). Further, with its focus on a theatrical Shakespeare production, Rivette uses film to comment on its relationship to the stage, a theme he would address in future films. Set and shot in the streets and apartments of Paris. 23 x 31.5 inches (58.5 x 80 cm), folded as issued. Small exhibitor or distributor stamp to recto and verso. About Near Fine with small, clean staple holes at corners and vertical fold, very minor fold separation at edges and center. A wonderful of example of an unrestored and scarce poster for a landmark debut feature. BFI 656.
