        Blue Hawaii (Original screenplay for the 1961 film)

      Los Angeles: Wallis-Paramount-Hazen / Paramount Pictures, 1961. Revised Final White script for the 1961 film. Notation (name) in holograph pencil on the front wrapper, though the association is unknown. One of Elvis Presley's most successful post-Army efforts. Presley plays Chad Gates, fresh out of the Army, and heir to a Hawaiian pineapple fortune. His mother Sarah (Lansbury) wants him to take over the management of the family business, but he'd rather surf the waves and dig the dames. He lands a job at a tourist agency, and meets Maile Duval (Blackman) and Abigail Prentice (Walters), but he also manages to anger a young dude and they engage in fisticuffs. Some of the songs featured in the film are the title number (originally written in 1937 for Bing Crosby), "I Can't Help Falling in Love," "Rock-a-Hula Baby," "Beach Boy Blues," and "Wedding Song." The soundtrack album is not only Elvis Presley's most successfully charting album, but it is also spent twenty consecutive weeks at number one on Billboard's Top LPs chart, a record to be broken only in 1977 by Fleetwood Mac's "Rumors" album, and it stayed on the charts for 79 weeks. Set in Hawaii, shot there on location. Self wrappers, noted as REVISED FINAL WHITE on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 160 and production No. 10224, dated March 17, 1961. Title page integral with front wrapper. 123 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 121. Mimeograph on eye-rest green stock, dated 3/17/61 throughout. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with two silver brads.

        Collection of 17 pieces issued by or relating to the Committee of 100

      1961-1962, London 1961 - The Committee of 100, a British non-violent anti-war group, the brain child of Ralph Schoenman, personal secretary to Bertrand Russell, was formed in 1960 with 100 signatories, among them Russell himself, who had resigned from the Campaign of Nuclear Disarmament in order to co-found the Committee. The first demonstration took place on February 18, 1961, at the Ministry of Defence in protest of the arrival of the USS Proteus and its cargo of Polaris missiles (see nos. 2 & 7). Between 1,000 and 6,000 protestors were present, though no arrests were made. The next protest took place at Parliament Square on April 29th, this time with 826 arrests (see nos. 4 & 14). The Committee's watershed, however, arrived on September 17th. A week prior to this demonstration, all members of the Committee had been called to court without charge where they were bound to promise 12 months of good behavior. 36 members, among them 89-year-old Bertrand Russell, refused, choosing to spend six days in prison instead. A week later, on September 17th, 12-15,000 protestors arrived at Trafalgar Square, where 1,314 arrests were made (see nos. 5, 13, & 16). The success of this protest led to the movement growing to other locations, including Middlesex, Oxford, Bristol, Yorkshire, Manchester, and Wales (see nos. 10, 11, & 17). By this time authorities had arrested six Committee officers (the "Wethersfield Six") who would each spend 12-18 months in prison. By 1962, 50% of the founding 100 had been replaced and the Committee was in debt. The central committee eventually dissolved, leaving 13 local committees, each made up of 100 members, to organize their own protests. Possibly the last important sit-down to be held was in March, 1962, where Bertrand Russell spoke out against the treatment of the Wethersfield Six. All 1,172 participants were arrested (see nos. 12 & 15). 1. [.] Silent Vigil, Russian Embassy, Sat. Oct. 21st. London: Goodwin Press Ltd., n.d. [1961].

      New York: Knopf, 1961., 1961. First edition. Presentation inscription dated May 1961, the month and year of publication, "For the Marshall McLuhans who have been so kind to these Archer books, and to their author, with love and a transcontinental hail! Ken." McLuhan and MacDonald were long-time friends by virtue of their common Canadian heritage, and their mutual respect for each other's intellect. Fine in dust jacket lightly soiled on the rear panel and with some very minor restoration to the spine ends and corners. Archer is hired to find a young girl who has been missing for two months. Before he's able to find the girl, Archer must deal with her mother, an eerily unmaternal woman who keeps too many residences, has too many secrets, and leaves too many corpses in her wake.

        Salonger i fil. Interiör från Länsresidenset i Östersund.

      [ENGLISH: An original watercolour by Swedish artist Hedvig Tegnér (1866-1961), showing an interior of the Governor's Residence in Östersund, Jämtland, Sweden (where the artist's brother Mortimer Munck af Rosenschöld served as Governor 1931-1938).] - Hedvig Tegnér var född Munck af Rosenschöld och gift med Elof Tegnér (1844-1900). Att hon, som var född, länge bosatt och slutligen begravd i Skåne, målat en interiör från residenset i Östersund är inte så märkligt som det kan synas. Det var nämligen under sju år bostad för hennes yngre bror Mortimer Munck af Rosenschöld (1873-1942), landshövding i Jämtland 1931-38. Det bidrar även till att datera akvarellen till dessa år. Akvarell. Signerad: "H. Tegnér". 35 x 48 cm. Mortimer Munck af Rosenschölds hustru, arkeologen Hanna Rydh (1891-1964) gjorde som landshövdingsfru stora insatser för länets kulturarv, och särskilt för Jämtlands läns museum, Jamtli. Hon hade 1919 som första kvinna disputerat i arkeologi vid Uppsala universitet med en avhandling om vikingatida dräktspännen och intresserade sig under tiden i Östersund särskilt för sockendräkter och hemslöjd.Det var först i 35-årsåldern - efter makens död 1900 - som Hedvig Tegnér på allvar kunde förverkliga ungdomens konstnärsdrömmar. Akvarellen var hennes främsta uttrycksmedel; hon skildrade ofta idyller från en svunnen tid, ibland som här en borgerlig interiör.

        1961 Hans Haacke Signed Inkless Intaglio Print

      1961 - We offer a signed inkless intaglio print by Hans Haacke. The plate size is 3 7/8" x 3 3/8" on white wove paper. The sheet size is 12 3/4" x 9 3/4". Signed "HA 61" in graphite at the lower right and inscribed "Artist's Proof" at the lower left. Likely part of a body of work published by Haacke for his first show: "Hans Haacke Lithographs, Relief Paintings 9/6/62 - 9/30/62" at One-Wall Gallery in Manhattan (Four prints from this show are in permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art.). The organic, aggregate pattern in this piece shows the minimalist roots of an artist largely known for political work that probes at the nerve center of the Establishment. In 2015 Haacke installed his piece "Gift Horse" for the Fourth Plinth commission in Trafalgar Square; a skeletal, riderless bronze horse with an electronic ribbon tied to its front leg that displays the live ticker prices of the London Stock Exchange. Hans Haacke (1936) is a German-born artist who currently lives and works in New York. Condition: Adhered to matboard at top corners but otherwise very good. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Sketches from Life of Men I Have Known

      New York: Harper & Brothers 1961 - 8vo., black boards and red cloth lettered in gilt; dust jacket. First edition, first printing. A presentation copy, inscribed: "With love to Lois and Phil, Dean Acheson," on the front endpaper. ---- The recipient, Philip C. Jessup, a judge on the International Court of Justice at The Hague and veteran U.S. diplomat, was credited with playing a major role in ending the Soviet blockade of West Berlin. Jessup was a representative to the United Nations General Assembly, as well as a U.S. ambassador at large from 1949 until his resignation in 1953. During that time, he was one of the closest advisers of then- Secretary of State Dean Acheson. After Jessup was maligned by Senator Joe McCarthy for purported communist "affinities," General Dwight D. Eisenhower heralded Jessup's "devotion to the principles of Americanism." McCarthy's charges kept Jessup from being reappointed to the U.S. delegation to the United Nations in 1951 but President Harry S. Truman made him an alternate delegate the following year. Acheson would later recall that Jessup's "wit, gay and ready, and his irrepressible humor would survive the longest and dullest meetings." Acheson mentioned Jessup several times in "Sketches." An important presentation copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1961 - Early printing with "BOUND BY The Book Press" not "H. Wolff" in the four line colophon. A bright, Fine copy of the book in a just about Fine dust jacket with a small scuff on the spine panel and a few stray marks on the rear panel. On the whole a superior copy of the book that is rarely seen in this condition. If this was the first issue, it would be 10 time the price. Dahl's second book for children after "Gremlins." A somewhat controversial children's book due to the cruel treatment James receives living with his aunt and uncle, much like Harry Potter and several other young heroes. After escaping from home in a giant magical peach, James travels the world with his new friends having all sorts of wonderful adventures. Fine in about Fine dust jacket.

        Jazzlife [Jazz Life].

      Offenburg: Burda Druck und Verlag, 1961. First edition. Quarto, original black cloth, pictorial front endpapers. Profusely illustrated in color and black and white. Inscribed on the half title page to photographer Robert Frank, "For Robert with my best wishes! William Claxton." With Robert Frank's signature on the upper right hand corner. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with some small closed tears. A wonderful association copy linking these two great photographs of the twentieth century. Newsweek has called Jazzlife "... surely the most thorough and imaginative visual record of American jazz at mid-century that we'll ever see." Claxton's work is a photographic depiction of jazz artists in the 1960's, most noted for its images of Chet Baker. He has photographed for Steve McQueen and other celebrities and models, and in 1967, he created the film Basic Black. It is credited as the first "fashion video" and is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
