        Signed Life Magazine Cover. August 18, 1961

      Life Magazine cover from 1961 that has been trimmed and cheaply framed. Near fine, would probably benefit from a better framing job. The cover has been Signed by both Mantle and Maris below their photos: "Best Wishes, Mickey Mantle" and "Best of Luck, Roger Maris." Anyone who needs to be told why the M&M boys were on the cover of Life at that particular time probably isn't a baseball fan, but no worries, we'll be happy to sell it to you anyway. .

        Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz

      Alfred A Knopf, New York 1961 - 92 pages. Oblong octavo (7 1/4" x 8 3/4") issued in quarter bound beautiful full-color cubist-styled paper boards over an off-white linen spine with black stamping to the spine. The text block is printed on pink paper with brown lettering. inscribed by Hughes. First edition. In language bursting with sound and rhythm-angry, blue, fiercely ironic, funny, and haunting-Langston Hughes has unleashed here a sequence of brilliant jazz poetry that cannot fail to stir even the tone-deaf. These are poems that demand to be read aloud, and whether or not the proper instruments are handy, the description, line by line, of the musical accompaniment which appears beside the verse is so vivid that the music can be imagined. The language derives its is so vivid that the music can be imagined. The language derives its inspiration from the jazz, taking off at moments like a solo instrument, pounding you like bongo drums, moving in free association. But beneath the flights of fancy is a thematic unity, and you are drawn back to the refrains "in the quarter of the Negro" and, when you are stuck for answers, "ask your mama." Throughout, the verse is studded with topical allusions. You feel the voice of the Negro everywhere-not just in Harlem or "63rd and Chi," but in Lumumba-land and Trinidad, wherever he casts his shadow and is being heard from today in an every mounting, many-tonged, eloquent chorus. For those who want Langston Hughes's own explanation of what he is driving at, he has supplied at the end of the book some liner notes for squares. (Front flap from jacket.) Condition: Inscribed on the front end paper. Points lightly rubbed. Some rubbing to jacket edges, spine ends with small chips and small closed tears else a very good copy with like jacket.

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 Braque in our own century." MONOD 1955. ROSENWALD COLLECTION 2228.

        Gone With the Wind.

      c. 1961 - Sheet size: 177 × 182 mm. Stamped below the image for publication in the Sunday Telegraph. Pen and ink on wove paper. A man chases his hat and newspaper down the pavement amid the blown leaves and litter of a very windy day. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

HUGNET Georges,Surréaliste. (illustrateur). Artiste, poète, critique, historien du Surréalisme et du Dadaïsme. Georges Hugnet (1906-1974) est encore aujourd’hui injustement méconnu. Ayant eu l’élégance de rester discret et surtout l’art de garder un esprit libre loin des luttes de clan, on le retrouve dans toutes les anthologies de références consacrées au surréalisme tout en ignorant qui il était vraiment.Proche de Breton et d’Eluard, sa rencontre avec le groupe surréaliste date de 1926, mais ce n’est qu’en 1932 qu’il en devient « officiellement membre » lorsque Tristan Tzara le présente à André Breton. Multipliant les écrits, avec notamment de nombreux articles sur Max Ernst, Miró, Dominguez, Tanguy, Magritte, il réalise également une étude sur le dadaïsme (L’Esprit Dada dans la peinture), tourne un film (La Perle) dans la tradition onirique du cinéma surréaliste, participe activement aux expositions internationales du Surréalisme de 1938 (Paris et Amsterdam), et publie également de nombreux ouvrages, recueil de poèmes, pièces de théâtre, livres-objets et photo-montages. A travers la diversité de son œuvre, le collage constitue une passion ancienne et durable, qui le place comme l’un des meneurs de l’innovation collagiste. De ce point de vue, sa plus grande réalisation est un recueil de 20 poèmes-découpages publiés en 1936 par Jeanne Bucher : la Septième face du dé. Ce livre compte parmi les publications les plus étonnantes de cette période. Mais il faut également mentionner Huit jours à Trébaumec et 1961, deux autres ouvrages où les collages de Georges Hugnet trouvent une place de choix.(These surreal photomontages show Hugnet's sense of humor and references to sexuality. Peregrinations de Georges Hugnet.Complete with the errata sheet) .de toute rareté .en bon état malgré les petits défauts signalés (very good condition in spite of the smalls defects indicated). .
