        Thunderball

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1961., 1961. FIRST EDITION, First Issue, Binding A. Octavo, pp.254. Publisher's cloth-effect paper over boards with embossed skeleton hand design to upper board, gilt titles to spine. In original dust-wrapper illustrated by Richard Chopping. Internally clean, some dustiness to text block, jacket with one short tear at joint, mildly toned to spine. No inscriptions or price-clipping. A very good copy 'Thunderball' is one of the most pivotal works of the series. It was in 'Thunderball' that Fleming first introduces the world to the ultimate Bond villian- Ernest Stavro Blofeld. Though Bond and Blofeld never actually meet here, it is in this book that Bond first battles the schemes of SPECTRE, Blofeld's criminal organisation. Is the first part of the so-called 'Blofeld' trilogy, and was followed by 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' (1963) and 'You Only Live Twice' (1964). An omnibus edition was published in 2010. The title was filmed in 1965, starring Sean Connery as 007, Claudine Auger as Domino and Adolfo Celi as Emilio Largo- SPECTRE's No.2. The later film 'Never Say Never Again', with Connery again as 007, was loosely based on this story. Gilbert A9a (1.1).

        Jazz Life. Auf den Spuren des Jazz.

      Offenburg: Burda Druck und Verlag, 1961 - Quarto. Original black cloth, gilt lettered spine and front cover, coloured stylised "map" endpapers entitled "US of Jazz". Spine sunned, a few marks to back cover, peripheral paper toning throughout; with the pocket for vinyl records at the end (the discs not present in this copy but they are rarely encountered). Monochrome illustrations throughout (a few in colour). First edition, first printing, only reissued in English in a revised edition in 2005. Presentation copy from photographer William Claxton to the actor and acknowledged jazz fan Robert Mitchum, inscribed on the half-title: "For Bob Mitchum, a Swinger! William Claxton Feb. 1962" and with the library stamps stating "From the Estate of Robert Mitchum, Santa Barbara, California". A fascinating record in words and pictures of a coast-to-coast tour undertaken by the influential German broadcaster Joachim Berendt and leading jazz photographer William Claxton. Berendt's radio show "Jazztime Baden-Baden" pioneered the popularisation of jazz in post-war Germany. Claxton is the man behind the lens behind some iconic jazz images. Mitchum himself almost invented Hollywood "cool" in some of the most memorable screen performances from the 40s through to the 60s. What is not widely known is that he also had a career in music, releasing two vocal albums: Calypso - is like so. (Capitol 1957) and That Man Robert Mitchum. Sings (Monument 1967), the latter including "Little Old Wine Drinker Me" that peaked at number 9 in the country charts and was also covered by fellow Consul of Cool, Dean Martin. All in all, a rather cool association copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Comment c'est

      Les éditions de minuit 1961 - - Les éditions de minuit, Paris 1961, 12x19cm, broché. - Edition originale sur papier courant. Précieux envoi autographe daté de Janvier 1961 et signé de Samuel Beckett à son ami le peintre Geer (Van Velde) et à sa femme Lise. Dos légèrement insolé. « Que dire de ces plans qui glissent, ces contours qui vibrent, ces corps comme taillés dans la brume, ces équilibres qu'un rien doit rompre, qui se rompent, et se reforment à mesure qu'on regarde ? Comment parler de ces couleurs qui respirent, qui halètent ? de cette stase grouillante ? de ce monde sans poids, sans force, sans ombre ? Ici tout bouge, nage, fuit, revient, se défait, se refait. Tout cesse, sans cesse. On dirait l'insurrection des molécules, l'intérieur d'une pierre un millième de seconde avant qu'elle ne se désagrège. C'est ça la littérature. » (La peinture des van Velde ou Le Monde et le pantalon, in Cahiers d'Art n°11-12, Paris 1945) Beckett ne parle pas ici, malgré les apparences, de son œuvre littéraire mais de la peinture de Geer van Velde, ajoutant quelques lignes plus loin : « [Bram] van Velde peint l'étendue. G[eer] van Velde peint la succession. ». Cet éloge de la peinture des frères van Velde, publié à l'occasion de la double exposition des van Velde, Geer chez Maeght et Bram à la galerie Mai, est le premier texte d'importance sur ces peintres alors à peu près inconnus du public : « On ne fait que commencer à déconner sur les frères van Velde. J'ouvre la série. C'est un honneur. » Il est aussi le premier texte critique écrit directement en français par un jeune écrivain irlandais qui n'a encore jamais publié en France. Ainsi, le premier et plus important écrit sur l'art de Beckett, composé à l'aube de sa carrière littéraire, instaure, dès l'origine, une relation fondamentale entre son œuvre en gestation et la peinture de ses amis : « Aussi a-t-on souvent lu ce texte en creux, ou en miroir, comme une des rares désignations de la poétique (à venir) de Beckett par lui-même, une sorte de programme anamorphique d'écriture » (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique par Pierre Vilar) Véritable déclaration d'intention du dramaturge, ce texte fondamental - dont Beckett confesse dès l'introduction la valeur introspective : « avec les mots on ne fait que se raconter » - inaugure la période créatrice la plus fructueuse de l'écrivain. En effet, à l'instar d'Apollinaire ou de Cendrars, Beckett puise dans les problématiques artistiques des frères van Velde le ferment de son écriture à venir par « la mise en cause la plus profonde des présupposés narratifs, figuratifs ou poétiques. » (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur). L'influence majeure de la peinture moderne sur la structure - ou déstructuration - narrative à l'œuvre dans le théâtre et les romans de Beckett sera révélée et analysée par de nombreux penseurs, dont Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva ou Maurice Blanchot. C'est justement à partir de la peinture des van Velde, de Geer, puis de Bram, que Beckett formalise cette volonté de traduire la question picturale en dramaturgie. Ainsi refuse-t-il les décors de Nicolas de Staël pour En attendant Godot car : « Il faut que le décor sorte du texte, sans y ajouter. Quant à la commodité visuelle du spectateur, je la mets là où tu penses. Crois-tu vraiment qu'on puisse écouter devant un décor de Bram, ou voir autre chose que lui ? » (Lettre à Georges Duthuit, 1952) . Lorsqu'il rencontre Geer en 1937, « Beckett traverse une crise existentielle majeure, il vient de remodeler son premier roman Murphy, refusé par un grand nombre d'éditeurs, il sombre dans l'alcoolisme, quitte l'Irlande et s'installe définitivement à Paris » (Le pictural dans l'œuvre de Beckett, Lassaad Jamoussi). Il revient d'un long voyage artistique en Allemagne où il s'est imprégné d'œuvres classiques et d'art contemporain - c'est lors de ce voyage qu'il découvre les deux hommes contemplant la Lune de Caspar David Friedrich, à l'origine de En attendant Godot. L'art est alors au cœur [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
