        LA BIBBIA DI BORSO D'ESTE, riproduzione integrale promossa e curata da GIOVANNI TRECCANI DEGLI ALFIERI, con documenti e studio storico - artistici di ADOLFO VENTURI (due volumi 30 X 41 con custodia rinforzata in velluto+ volume pag.21), Bergamo, Banca Popolare e Poligrafica Bolis, 1961

      1961. Riproduzione lussuosa delle poligrafiche Bolis di Bergamo su commissione della Banca popolare di Bergamo. Ex lilbri Ing. Evandro Terinelli all'inizio di ogni volume. Due volumi cm. 30 base e 41 di altezza, due astucci ricoperti di velluto. Stemma in argento finemente lavorato sui due piatti. Totale di circa 1300 pagine, circa 50 delle quali sono qui riprodotte a colori spettacolari che fanno magnificamente risaltare l'arte somma dei miniaturisti del '500 (Taddeo Crivelli e Franco del Russi della scuola ferrarese), mentre la scrittura gotica su due colonne fu opera del calligrafo milanese Pier Paolo Moroni. I due volumi che presentiamo sono in condizioni ottme. La magnifica opera, riconosciuta come un capolavoro assoluto del Rinascimento italiano, venne commissionata dal Principe Duca Borso tra il 1455 ed il 1461 e restò presso la corte Estense fino al 1859 . Con la fine del dominio estense, venne quindi portata a Vienna da Francesco Quinto. Finita poi in possesso dell'antiquario parigino ROMEUF, venne da questi comprata per una cifra incredibile nel 1923 dal padre della enciclopedia italiana GIOVANNI TRECCANI , che subito la fece rientrare in Italia donandola allo Stato, che ne decretò il ritorno a MODENA PRESSO LA BIBLIOTECA ESTENSE dove è tuttora custodita, proprio come ai fasti di Modena capitale. A richiesta possiamo fornire dettagli ed ampia documentazione fotografica.

        Thunderball

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1961. Octavo. Original dark grey boards, titles to spine gilt, skeletal hand motif on front board blind stamped. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. A few minor spots to the fore edge but an excellent copy in the very slightly rubbed dust jacket. First edition, first impression. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper, "To Margot from Ian Fleming"; a fascinating presentation. The recipient was the wife of Jack Whittingham, who wrote an original Bond film screenplay named Thunderball, a collaborative project that predated the book. Fleming used the screenplay as the unacknowledged basis for his novel of the same name, but signed a film agreement instead with Eon Productions, leaving Whittingham and his producer, Kevin McClory, out in the cold and with a pronounced grievance. The resulting court case in November 1963 is said to have broken Fleming's health, leading to his premature death from heart complications in August 1964. As a result of the court settlement, future versions of the novel gave the credit, "based on the screen treatment by Kevin McClory, Jack Whittingham, and Ian Fleming" (in that order). The inscription suggests that at the time of publication Fleming had little idea how much the book had offended the Whittingham family; or it may reflect the fact that, as Jack Whittingham had recently and openly embarked on an affair with a 17-year-old model, his long-suffering wife was unlikely to be sympathetic to his cause.

        The Centurions

      London: Hutchinson & Co. Ltd., 1961. First English language edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a superior, jacketed copy of the first English-language edition, scarce thus, near fine in a near fine dust jacket. The red and black cloth binding remains clean, bright, and tight, with sharp corners, vivid spine gilt, and no appreciable wear. A very slight forward lean is the only defect noted. The contents remain bright with a crisp feel and no spotting or previous ownership marks. The illustrated yellow and gray-green dust jacket remains clean and complete, with the original lower front flap price intact. We note trivial wear to spine ends and corners and only a trivial hint of toning to the spine, which retains strong color and excellent shelf presentation. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. French journalist, war correspondent, and former soldier Jean Pierre Lucien Osty published this acclaimed novel under the nom de plume Jean Larteguy. The Centurions narrative is set against the backdrop of the military quagmires and moral complexities of France's post-WWII colonial conflicts. The story follows a group of French paratroop officers captured by the Vietminh after the fall of Dien-Bien-Phu in Indo-China through their subsequent release, re-enlistment, and service in Algeria using the methods they learned from the Vietminh. The book was written and published in French in 1960, then translated by Xan Fielding for publication in this first English-language edition in 1961. The Centurions won the prestigious Prix Eve Delacroix for 1960 and in 1966 was adapted into a movie (Lost Command) starring Anthony Quinn. The Centurions is credited with the first presentation of the “ticking time bomb” moral quandary scenario.
