        Horseman, Pass By

      Harper & Brothers 1961 - The book that launched one of the most legendary careers in both book writing, and the writing of screenplays for Hollywood. Horseman, Pass By was Mr. McMurtry's first novel and was famously the basis for the Academy Award-winning film, Hud starring Paul Newman, Melvyn Douglas and Patricia Neal. The film was nominated for seven Oscars and took home 4. Other works by McMurtry include The Last Picture Show, Terms of Endearment and the Pulitzer Prize-Winning Lonesome Dove. That last title was the basis for the mini-series of the same name and is still widely-lauded as the best broadcast television mini-series of all time.

        [Pop-up Book] Circus Life

      (London: Bancroft & Co., 1961). (London: Bancroft & Co., 1961). Quarto. 8pp., plus a pop-up section at the end of the book designed by the acclaimed Czech artist and paper engineer Vojtech Kubasta. The book opens with the tale "Tony and the Circus Boy," about a boy who befriends a new classmate whose parents are circus performers. The story is illustrated with black & white head-and tailpieces, and there are additional whimsical color illustrations inside the covers depicting circus acts. With a stunning, colorful, three dimensional pop-up of a circus big top, complete with musicians in an upper gallery, acrobats on trapezes, roaring lions and tigers, prancing horses, and the ringmaster standing in the center of it all. The book's three-fold board covers open flat, allowing the pop-up scene, which is nearly a foot tall, to stand up on its own. The scene also has numerous movable elements within it: when tabs are pulled, elephants bow and raise their heads, monkeys teeter on a ball, and a bear rides a bicycle pulled by a clown. According to the paper engineer Robert Sabuda, who was inspired by Kubasta's books at an early age, Kubasta's work is unusual in that he was able to create astonishingly complex, detailed scenes with a single sheet of paper. Kubasta's pop-up books are also known for their bold, rich color and were printed in Czechoslovakia on special pre-war presses at the state-run publishing house Artia. A very fine copy bound in bright, illustrated boards depicting a performer surrounded by circus animals, as a tiger leaps through her hoop. In the original packaging, which includes a colorful advertisement for all twelve "Panascopic Model Books" designed by Kubasta.

Very light crease on front free endpaper. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with just a hint of darkening to spine.The ninth novel in the James Bond series, published March 27, 1961 in an initial print run of 50,938 copies that quickly sold out. Technically the first novelization of a James Bond screenplay, it was born from a collaboration by five people: Ian Fleming, Kevin McClory, Jack Whittingham, Ivar Bryce and Ernest Cuneo, although the controversial shared credit of Fleming, McClory and Whittingham was the result of a courtroom decision. The book appeared before the film was produced.James Bond, Secret Service operative 007, travels to the Bahamas to regain his health but winds up working with his old friend, CIA operative Felix Leiter, last seen in Dr. No. The story concerns the theft of two atomic bombs by the crime syndicate SPECTRE and the subsequent attempted blackmail of the Western powers for their return. Thunderball introduced SPECTRE's leader, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, in the first of three appearances in Bond novels. The Bond girl this time around is Domino, mistress of villain, Emilio Largo, and, per usual, this domino falls for 007.
