        The Danzig Trilogy, comprising] The Tin Drum; Cat and Mouse; Dog Years

      Pantheon [Harcourt, Brace & World, through 1965], New York 1961 - First Printings of the first American editions, with matching dust jackets illustrated with drawings by the author. All translated from the German by Ralph Manheim. 8vo's; 592; 190; 570pp. The Thin Drum (Pantheon, 1961): Publisher's finely woven red cloth, the upper boarded stamped with a device of the "tin" drummer, the spine lettered in black and gilt, with a matching black top stain and threaded end papers, the dust jacket priced at $6.95. Both book and jacket are virtually As New, with no discernible faults. Cat and Mouse (Harcourt, Brace & World, 1963): Publisher's finely woven black cloth, the upper boarded stamped with a device of a curled-up cat, the spine lettered in red and gilt, the dust jacket priced at $3.95. Both book and jacket are in Fine condition, barring just a shade of toning to the jacket's spine. Dog Years (Harcourt, Brace & World, 1965): Publisher's original black cloth with brown end papers, the spine lettered in gilt, the dust jacket priced at $6.95. Fine, square and tight, in a Fine jacket with no wear. The Tin Drum, the first installment in the author's Danzig Trilogy, offers a searing indictment of the role ordinary Germans played in Hitler’s National Socialist regime and of their reluctance to address issues of guilt in the postwar era. At the time of the book's publication, the dominant historical view held that National Socialist crimes had been committed by a few fanatical individuals—an idea endorsed by the Nuremberg Trials of key Nazis in 1945-1946. It was not until the Auschwitz trials of 1963-65 that the part played in the Holocaust by "ordinary" men and women was fully documented. Grass’s next two books, Cat and Mouse and Dog Years, continue his exploration of this, until then, widely unacknowledged perspective. When Grass was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1999, in large part for the Danzig Trilogy, the prize committee noted the books' remarkable portrayal of "the forgotten face of history." Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The series closely paralleled the European shows being produced by George Maciunas of his newly developing Fluxus movement, which itself was inspired the Dadaist. The Chambers Street shows led Maciunast to invite Ono to join his fledgling group and helped coalesce the various artists that would become the core members of Fluxus.

Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. The acclaimed street photographer of Naked Hollywood and Naked City is known for his documentation of the lurid undersides of stardom and commerce in mid-century Los Angeles. His use of distortion through trick lenses and multiple exposures is part of the Weegee-trademark, but it is also an artful glimpse into Weegee's perception of the underlying themes of Hollywood profiling. Ultimately, Weegee's work can be seen as a noirish glance into the urban life of the early Twentieth Century, while his autobiography is an insight into the behind that glance [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Whatever we may want in a novelist is to be found in his books: an almost Conradian gift for tensing a story, a serious involvement with human issues, a supple English prose, a hard-edged wit, a personal vision of things.[He is] the world's writer, a master of language and perception" (The New York Times Book Review). Listed on both Modern Library and Time's 100 great novels of the twentieth century. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
