      Langley Field:: NASA,, 1961. . This typed letter to a collector of space material is written on NASA letterhead and dated August 18, 1961.

        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.

      [colophon: Cleveland: World Publishers Folio. [737] ff.. 1961] A fine full-size facsimile on specially made "antique" paper from the Ventura Mill at Cernobbio, Italy, faithfully reproducing the black-letter text of the first edition, first issue (the "He" issue) of the King James Bible. => The edition was limited to 1500 copies, of which this is number 878. It was printed by offset lithography and bound in full leather by Amilcare Pizzi of Milan in a handsome replica of the type of binding found on some copies of this edition. Binding as above with leather abraded at edges, spine-tips, and bands; joints open and fragile; lacks the slipcase. Interior fresh, clean, and lovely. 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.

        Gregory Peck and producer Sy Bartlett on the set of "Cape Fear" (1961)

      N.p.: N.p., 1961. Vintage oversize double weight candid photograph of Gregory Peck and producer Sy Bartlett conferring on the set of "Cape Fear" in 1961, during the final scene in which Peck's character Sam Bowden fights in swamp water with Max Cady (Robert Mitchum). Shot, struck, and mounted by the film's still photographer, Bob Willoughby. The photographer has written at the top of the verso, in holograph ink: "Greg on set listens to producer Sy Bartlett." With Willoughby's ASMP rubber stamp with his Pacific Palisades address, and a separate stamp with the address of the Lee Gross Agency in New York. 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. In a custom museum-quality frame, archivally mounted, with UV glass. 13.5 x 9 inches. Near Fine. Hardy, The BFI Companion to Crime, pp. 69-70. Silver, pp. 64-65. Selby, p. 31. Spicer, p. 423.
