        Some Arachnids

      Apiary Press, (Northampton, MA) 1961 - Oblong quarto. (10)ff., + single letterpress sheet laid in. One of twenty-five copies signed by the illustrator, Joyce Sills. This copy bears a presentation inscription from Sills to social-realist artist Ben Shahn and his wife, Bernarda. The colophon notes that the Shahns' son, Ezra, had a part in the production of this book. Completed under the Apiary Press imprint, the name given to works produced by Leonard Baskin's students when he taught at Smith College, this work contains ten etchings of spiders, including one printed in green. Sills went on to enjoy a reputation as an award-winning printmaker. In a handsome designer binding by Sonya Sheats of full green Oasis morocco with enamel onlays. The binding features an abstract relief pattern formed by pressing the design into the leather using engraved plastic panels. Across both panels are a series of circular onlays of enamel-colored calf. The overall design is a series of concentric circles surrounded by perpendicular lines, which one can see as either a spider's web, or reminiscent of the shape of the spider's abdomen. The design for the covers is taken directly from the decorative endsheets, which show a web pattern made with India ink and thread. Housed in a slipcase of walnut veneer over plastic, which made the artist "think of a box in which one might store specimens," with a plastic sliding tab engraved with the book's title. An uncommon book with a great association in an elegant modern binding. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Typed Letter Signed by Viril "Gus" Grissom.

      NASA, Langley Field 1961 - This typed letter to a collector of space material is written on NASA letterhead and dated August 18, 1961. The text reads: "Dear___, Thank you for your congratulations and thoughtfulness. Your reaction as a fellow American has been most heart-warming to me. I am very proud to have been a part of this step in our space program. I am happy to send a photograph as you have requested. Very Truly Yours, Signed Virgil I Grissom." Virgil "Gus" Grissom was the second American astronaut in space, aboard Mercury-Redstone 4 named Liberty Bell 7. It was a 15 minute and 37 second suborbital flight on July 21, 1961. The flight was successful, but the spacecraft sank shortly after splashdown. Grissom wrote this letter 4 weeks later. Grissom returned to space aboard Gemini 3 on March 23, 1965, which became the first manned Gemini flight. The flight, with fellow astronaut John Young, orbited the Earth three times. Grissom was chosen, with astronauts Edward H. White II and Roger B. Chaffee, for the first manned Apollo mission in 1967. On January 27, 1967, during a routine training exercise on the launching pad, a fire in the command module of Apollo 1 killed all three astronauts. Signed "Virgil I. Grissom." Authentic Grissom signatures are rare in any form. A Near Fine copy. Together with a card Signed by Betty Grissom and two small color photographs, one of a flatbed jalopy with Liberty Bell 7 painted on it that was part of parade in Grissom's hometown the day he went into space and a snapshot of Grissom's home where he grew up in Mitchell, Indiana.

        YOUR TEENS AND MINE

      Doubleday & Company, Inc. (1961), Garden City - SIGNED by the former First Lady on the front endpaper. Roosevelt advises how a teen-age girl can grow to be a gracious lady by recounting her own experiences of overcoming shyness and facing her fears. A few pages in the penultimate chapter have pencil and pen markings with some words crossed out and a few added, apparently in preparation for reading from the chapter. The handwriting does not appear to be Roosevelt's but possibly may be Ferris's. In any case, it's an interesting alteration to an already uncommon book, especially when autographed. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        For the New Intellectual: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand.

      New York: Random House, 1961. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed by Ayn Rand on the half title page. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with a few small closed tears and wear to the extremities. "Rand's 1961 book For The New Intellectual outlines her philosophical system of Objectivism by means of excerpts from We The Living, Anthem, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged She then opens the book with an essay on the cultural bankruptcy that has undermined the capitalistic system of the United States. The essay is directed at 'the New Intellectuals' needed to restore and defend a capitalist economy in the face of that cultural bankruptcy. Rand is very clear that neither pragmatic nor economic argument is what must be used. Instead, it is arguments for 'a new morality of rational self-interest' that will provide the foundation for a new capitalist culture" (Bostaph, Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 11:1,20).

        Young Adam (First UK Edition, inscribed in the year of publication)

INSCRIBED by the author to noted bookseller Anthony Rota in 1961 on the leaf facing the title page: "For Anthony Rota / In appreciation of his many acts of friendship / Alexander Trocchi / September 1961." The only inscribed copy of the hardcover edition of this title--the author's masterpiece--that we have ever encountered. A beat novel, originally published as an Olympia Press paperback with racier content, this being the more "literary" version that Trocchi was subsequently encouraged to release. Over time, both versions have been assessed as having literary merit. Basis for the superb 2003 film directed by Alexander MacKenzie and starring Ewan McGregor and Tilda Swinton.

        Weegee by Weegee. An Autobiography.

      New York: Ziff-Davis Publishing Company, , 1961. Octavo. Original black cloth, gilt lettered spine, gilt facsimile of Weegee's studio stamp on front cover. With the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece of Weegee by Philippe Halsman and 57 full-page plates. Jacket with short closed-tear at foot of front panel. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed in pencil on the title page: "To Tiny Haberman - the world's greatest photographer, signed [the following very faint:] Weegee 1964". A splendid association copy, linking two outstanding photographers and fellow New Yorkers. Weegee, the pseudonym of Arthur Fellig (1899-1968), developed his signature photographic style by following the city's emergency services and documenting their activity. In 1938, he was the only New York newspaper reporter with a permit to have a portable police-band shortwave radio. He listened closely to police broadcasts and prided himself on beating the authorities to the scene, keeping a portable darkroom in the trunk of his car in order to get his freelance product to the newspapers first. He later also worked in cinema, initially making his own short films and later collaborating with film directors such as Jack Donohue and Stanley Kubrick. Irving Haberman (1916-2003) was one of the pre-eminent photojournalists of the 20th-century. Laid-in is a note from Haberman's widow Beulah (on her headed stationary) stating: "This book is inscribed to Irving from Author".

        Juste Present - HAND-CORRECTED PROOF COPY, TOGETHER WITH A SIGNED PRESENTATION OF "LE FRUIT PERMIS"

      An interesting set of proofs for the final poetry collection by the Romanian and French avant-garde poet, essayist and performance artist known for being a founding member of the Dada movement. Proof pages in advance of the 1961 publication, page numbers in pencil lower right, corresponding to the published pagination, the manuscript identified in another hand at the head "corrections de l'auteur 13 Juillet 1961," and bearing Tzara's corrections in blue ink on six pages. The included poems are as follows: I des profondeurs - page 11-12; II des profondeurs - page 15; III des profondeurs - page 16;  épigramme - page 19; une longue absence - page 20; la voix - page 23; fin d'un été - page 24; saison - page 27; aujourd'hui - page 28; à une morte - page 31-32; juste présent - page 35-36; 39-42.  Toned, a few stains, overall in fine condition. From the collection of the French writer and poet and artist Alain Jouffroy (1928 - 2015).Sold together with a signed but largely incomplete copy of the first edition of Le Fruit Permis, Tzara's 1956 collection of poems. Signed and inscribed on the half title page in French in black ink to Jouffroy, "a Alain Jouffroy en toute amitié poetique et...[adding a little sketch of a pointing hand] Tristan Tzara, le 8 mai 1957."  Printed on Marais, one of only sixty copies issued, however this copy sadly lacking the official signed limitation page as well as the 4 pochoirs by Sonia Delaunay, as well as many of the poem texts -  included here, in other words, only for the signature and association and supporting provenance of the manuscript above.   9 x 11.25 inches. Softcover, loose as issued, mild wear to spine. Paris: L'Imprimerie Caracteres (1956). Bénézit 4-390 ; Monod 10799.Tzara moved to Paris from Zurich in 1919 and it was apparently one of his manifestos that made Sonia and Robert Delaunay, who had lived in Spain and then Portugal since 1914, aware of the renewed artistic vitality of Paris after the end of the war and determined their return to France. After World War II there were two collaborations with Sonia: for Le Fruit permis (1956), her first book since La Prose du Transsibérien, Sonia contributed four pochoir compositions, and for Juste présent (1961), the present collection of 11 poems written between 1947 and 1950, she made eight full-page colour etchings  and an additional colour etching for the slipcase.

A compromised copy, but a handsome and interesting production not necessarily easy to find on the market; a large volume priced to permit its strengthening by a conservator should that be wished for.
