        The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, 1961 UK Thirteenth Impression with Dustjacket and Custom Slipcase

      London: Allen & Unwin, 1961. 2nd Edition. Original Cloth. Near Fine/Very Good Plus. J.R.R. Tolkien. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published by Allen and Unwin in 1961. A beautiful copy of a very collectable book. This is a 2nd Edition, Thirteenth impression overall, published in 1961, in its original and correct non price clipped Thirteenth impression dustjacket. The book is in Near Fine condition, virtually without fault. The only fault is a bit of light fading to the top and bottom edges of the spine, with a bit of fading from the white areas of the spine allowing light to penetrate. The spine of the dustjacket shows almost no staining, a few chips out of the top of the spine and the tips of the flap fold area. Very light soiling to the dustjacket, mainly noticeable in the white areas.. The edges of the dustjacket have a bit of rubbing, with a very small amount of associated color loss at the tips of the fold areas, and a bit of loss to the top of the spine. A closed tear to the top of the front panel, near the flap fold area. No foxing to be found in the textblock or on the edges. No previous owner's name or any other writing in the book. The books cover is clean, bright, with the tiny bit of browning to the spine top edge. No bumps or bruises to the corners, with a light bit of pushing to the spine ends, but no wear or fraying whatsoever. An early collectable copy that shows beautifully with the very nice dustjacket. Now housed in a custom faux leather slipcase with The Mountain and Dragon design to one side, and the JRRT monogram to the other. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Near Fine / Very Good Plus.

        Young Adam

      Heinemann, London 1961 - 8vo, pp. 162. Original brown boards, lettered in gilt on spine. Top edge a little dusty, light spotting to leading and lower edge, otherwise a near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper, rear panel a little marked, spine ends worn with slight loss to head (not affecting text), and three small closed tears to top edge. First UK edition, INSCRIBED BY TROCCHI'S COUSIN ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER: 'With the compliments of the author's cousin. The Demon driver!!'. Scottish novelist Alexander Trocchi [1925-1984] moved to Paris in the early 1950s, where he edited the literary magazine Merlin. Merlin flew the Existentialist flag, and numbered Sartre, Genet and Camus among its contributors. The magazine proved better at making reputations than money, however, and Trocchi was one of a group of impecunious writers recruited by Maurice Girodias to write pornography for the Olympia Press, an English-language, Paris-based imprint catering for the wide variety of sexual tastes to be found among the city's Anglophone residents and visitors. But Olympia also had a more respectable face -- it published the first edition of Lolita, as well as work by Beckett, Burroughs and J.P. Donleavy -- and Trocchi was keen to join its roster of writers. He supplied Girodias with two smutty potboilers written absolutely to the Olympia recipe, Helen and Desire and The Carnal Days Of Helen Seferis (both published under the 'Frances Lengel' pseudonym), and then submitted Young Adam, an altogether more literary work. Girodias didn't like it for precisely that reason. The novel, preoccupied with sex (good) and death (less good), unfolds in an allusive, elusive writerly style which Girodias knew would be a turn-off for Frances Lengel fans. He sent Trocchi away to rewrite Young Adam in the Olympia house style. Astonishingly Trocchi did, and the true first edition of Young Adam [Atlantic Library, 1954] is a sexed-up, dumbed-down version of the book which would go on to make Trocchi's name. This UK edition was the first to publish the text as it was originally written.

J. Lebel e da Jouffroy come opposizione alla guerra in Algeria. Dal testo di Jouffroy: "L'Anti-Processo non è solo un atto di protesta, è il punto di incontro di volontà di superamento convergenti. Vogliamo abbattere le barriere che si continua ogni giorno ad innalzare tra l'arte e la vita, vogliamo proporre un'altra immagine dell'uomo, dove finalmente si riconosca, nelle sue contraddizioni, nei suoi deliri, come pure nelle sue esigenze di ordine, di equilibrio e di pace".

        Spencer's Mountain

      New York: The Dial Press. 1961. First. First edition. Fine in very near fine dustwrapper with the slightest of rubbing. Signed by the author. Full-page Harper Lee blurb on the rear panel. Basis for the 1963 film featuring Henry Fonda and Maureen O'Hara. It was also the final film for veteran actor/director Donald Crisp, who suffers an unexpectedly gruesome death as Grandpa Spencer. Hamner was not pleased that the setting of the film was changed from his native Virginia to Wyoming, but had his way a decade later when the book was adapted into the television series The Waltons. The folksy and earnest program, narrated by Hamner, was a surprise ratings hit and remained a mainstay of quality television throughout the decade. A beautiful copy, and very uncommon signed. .

Arends' en gedateerd 'Brussel Zaterdag, [26 augustus 1961]'. 21 regels tekst. 4. 27,5 x 21,6 cm. Eén blad. Alleen recto. Gesigneerd 'Jan Arends' en gedateerd 'Brussel 27-8-61'. 29 regels tekst.* Volledige tekst van het pas in 2009 ontdekte en in 2010 gepubliceerde toneelstuk, waarvan slechts één andere doorslag bekend is. Dit vermakelijke toneelstuk is een parodie op de reclamewereld en een knipoog naar de actualiteit van de zomer van 1960, toen Nederland getroffen werd door een epidemie, veroorzaakt door een schadelijk antispatmiddel in margarine van het merk Planta. Tot een opvoering van Smeer is het bij leven van de auteur nooit gekomen.Deze doorslag wijkt enigszins af van de gepubliceerde versie; het eigenlijke stuk wordt hier voorafgegaan door een veelzeggend motto: 'Het is niet nodig de waarheid te kennen om het bedrog te doorzien'. In de drie begeleidende brieven aan Willy Pos (1912-1977), directeur van de Amsterdamse Toneelschool, gaat Arends uitgebreid in op de achtergronden bij zijn stuk.In de eerste brief schrijft hij dat het hem ook in Brussel financieel 'niet zo voor de wind' gaat. 'Ik pas hier op een huis voor mensen die ee[n] half jaar in het buitenland zijn. Van die gelegenheid heb ik gebruik gemaakt om het toneelstuk te schrijven dat ik u hierbij toezend. U zult ontdekken dat het werkelijk toneel is waar spelers en toeschouwers, plezier aan kunnen beleven'. En: 'Ik heb het stuk in minder dan een week geschreven, het kan dus best zijn dat er hier en daar nog wat aan moet worden geschaafd'.De tweede brief gaat vergezeld van een 'nieuw fragment': '[.] ik was te moe om er per brief al te diep op in te gaan [.] Nu al beginnen zaken hier en daar wijziging te ondergaan terwijl de figuur van Geldmaker veel meer kleur moet krijgen'. Arends stelt zich wat onderdanig op: 'Ik weet dat ik veel van U vraag en nu heb ik het gevoel alsof ik huiswerk instuur voor een schriftelijke cursus'. Eenzaam is de schrijver ook: 'Nog altijd alleen hier in dit huis. Het is een voordeel maar soms zou ik willen dat ik met iemand kon praten'.In de derde brief aan Pos, die weer een herziening begeleidt, geeft Arends nog enkele bespiegelingen: 'Het enige wat mij in de eerste acte een beetje blijft hinderen is het telefoongesprek. Daar weet ik echter geen mouw aan de passen. Het zal het beste zijn het sterk te bekorten. Nu wil ik ook de tweede acte nog hier en daar weizigen [sic] maar niet zo ingrijpend'.

        Four photo albums of events in India, owned by Thomas W. Simons, American Counsul General in Madras

      [Circa 1957-1961]. Four photo albums of events in India that contain more than 100 professionally taken images, owned by Thomas W. Simons, American Counsul General in Madras. Three oblong octavos; one oblong quarto. All appear to be presentations to Simons, who appears to be the featured guest or speaker. These were presented by Caltex Oil Company at the Inauguration of the Caltex Oil Refinery at Visakhapatnam (1957); the Lions Club of Kottayam; at Simons' Inaugural Address of the General Council at Anmnamalai University (1961); and the fourth unidentified.Most seem to be professional photos and are artistically mounted. 107 pictures total (including seven loose), perhaps five or six lacking, whether these are the loose ones or not is unclear. Some are captioned. Images include Simons speaking at banquets with local dignitaries, many sari-clad dancing girls, pictures of Simons in the streets, etc.Curiously we could find relatively little about Simons, although his son Thomas W. Simons, Jr. seems to have made a name for himself as ambassador to Pakistan.

        APHORISMES, MENUS & VARIÉTÉS

      [Paris]: Les Francs-Bibliophiles, 1961.. 109,[8]pp. Large octavo (24.5 x 16cm). Loose gatherings laid into printed wrappers. Frontis and 24 illustrations in mezzotint, with supplementary plate laid in. Fine in lightly worn chemise and velvet covered slipcase. First edition in this format, illustrated with original mezzotints by Mario Avati. One of 175 numbered copies on Vélin de Rives, printed by Fequet and Baudier, with the mezzotints printed by Atelier Rigal. Laid into this copy is an additional bifolium, being a menu associated with the meeting of the Société des Francs-Bibliophiles on 26 October 1961, illustrated with another mezzotint, numbered 'xi/xx' and signed by Avati in the margin. The book is itself inscribed and signed by the artist opposite the half-title. Strachan singles this work out for distinction in his discussion of "la manière noire," noting that Avati exploits the "medium superbly...In these hors- and in- text mezzotints the eye caresses culinary objects and items of food from egg-cups to peeled apples, pomegranates to pepper-mills. He treats homely, everyday things with the same affection and skill as French artists have done from the Le Nain brothers in the sixteenth...to Braque in our own century." MONOD 1955. ROSENWALD COLLECTION 2228. Strachan, THE ARTIST AND THE BOOK IN FRANCE, p.222.
