        UNCLE SHELBY’S ABZ BOOK / a primer for tender young minds

      Simon and Schuster 1961 - SILVERSTEIN (Shel): “UNCLE SHELBY’S ABZ BOOK / a primer for tender young minds”. ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT for Silverstein’s first “children’s” book comprising 76pp of original drawings and text including a title-page identifying the author/illustrator and giving the imprint of the soon-to-be published volume: “Simon and Schuster * New York * 1961”. Folio (measuring 12 x 9 inches), [73]ff with designs chiefly on one side only (leaves often glued back-to-back, though many now separated, glue residue “bleeding” through the outer margins of most leaves); disbound within pink paper (over black paper) wrappers with manuscript lettering on the front cover: “Uncle Shelby’s ABZ book by Shel the Sheller”, and “by Uncle Shelby” on the rear wrapper (spine defective, chipped edges, light spotting). Original manuscript for Silverstein’s wickedly amusing ABC book, published by Simon & Schuster in 1961. It is a clever send-up of the dull “Dick and Jane” type readers. This is Silverstein’s first “real” book, preceded by two collections of cartoons: Take Ten (1955), and Here’s My Plan (1960), as well as John Sack’s Report from Practically Nowhere (1959) with comic vignettes by Silverstein. Uncle Shelby’s ABZ Book originated as a contribution to Playboy magazine (August 1961, pp[70-73]). Our manuscript is based on these Playboy designs, but there are many significant differences: the pictures have been redrawn and the original color is now gone, the format is considerably expanded (from 36 panels on four pages, to 76 pages) adding several new letter images (and stretching many of the pictures over two pages) and now with 25 special [i.e., non-ABC] features rather than the nine present in the magazine (one of which is gone). In addition, a few letters are now illustrated with different designs and texts. Two of the major changes in illustrations support the idea that the published book would now be marketed for children: “J is for Junkie” has become “J is for Joke” and “U is for Uncle Charlie” is now “U is for Uncle Shelby” (Uncle Charlie had been mother’s secret boyfriend). The book (and manuscript) also add a dedication to child readers commencing “A Book for You / Many of my little friends have asked old uncle Shelby why he has written this book and why he loves children so dearly ”. We believe that our manuscript represents Silverstein’s first draft of the expanded book version of Uncle Shelby’s ABZ, which he then redrew for final reproduction. The illustrations in the published book follow our manuscript quite closely (with only a small number of alterations). The calligraphic text in the book is clearly rewritten, essentially with an eye toward clarity. Our manuscript contains every picture and text in the published book, except for the pictorial wrappers. Included here with this original manuscript is a copy of Playboy magazine (August 1961) containing the original ABZ, a 15th printing of the original 1961 Simon & Schuster version, and a more recent printing (32nd) now “for adults only”. It is very rare that one is able to acquire an early manuscript of such high quality by a major children’s book figure such as Shel Silverstein. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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.

        Gone with the Wind

      GONE WITH THE WIND MOVIE CAST: OLIVIA de HAVILAND, BUTTERFLY McQUEEN, VICTOR JORY, ANN RUTHERFORD and EVELYN KEYESSlip cased 25th anniversary edition of Margaret Mitchell's novel, signed by five members, of the movie cast, and also by Susan Myrick, Mitchell's friend and a technical advisor to the film. Rutherford and Jory have added inscriptions to the book's owner.Book signed: ""For Bernard/Bless you for remembering/Ann Rutherford", "Olivia de Haviland", "Evelyn Keyes", "Butterfly McQueen", "To Bernard/your friend/Victor Jory" and "Susan Myrick", 954 pages, 6¼x9½. Gone with the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell. New York, The Macmillan Company, 1961. Cloth-bound 25th anniversary edition with slip case. Signed on inside front cover and flyleaf. Imprinted with the name of the book's owner, Bernard L. Solari, to whom the signatures of Rutherford and Jory are inscribed. In 1939, the epic film, Gone With The Wind, based on Margaret Mitchell's 1936 best-selling novel of the same name, broke box office records and won ten Oscars (against stiff competition). The saga of the old South remains one of the most beloved films of all time. OLIVIA de HAVILAND (b. 1916), the last surviving major star of the film, was nominated for an Oscar for her role as Melanie Wilkes. The sister of actress Joan Fontaine, de Haviland won Best Actress Academy Awards for her roles in To Each His Own (1946) and The Heiress (1949), and received two more nominations (Hold Back the Dawn,1941; and The Snake Pit, 1948). At MGM from 1937, ANNE RUTHERFORD (b. 1920) gained minor stardom as Polly Benedict in the studio's Andy Hardy series. She was allowed to display her perky comic gifts in a trio of 1940s mystery-comedies co-starring Red Skelton (Whistling in the Dark, Whistling in Dixie, Whistling in Brooklyn), and was quite appealing as Careen O'Hara in this film. She closed out her film career in 1950 to devote more time to her private life; thereafter limiting her activity to her annual appearance as Suzanne Pleshette's mother on TV's The Bob Newhart Show. EVELYN KEYES (1919-2008)received her best opportunity outside of the DeMille fold when she was cast as the eternally jilted Suellen O'Hara in this film. Some of her other notable works include Face Behind the Mask (1941), Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941) and 1947's Mating of Millie. THELMA "BUTTERFLY" McQUEEN (1911-1995) earned her nickname in a ballet production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. She debuted on Broadway in Brown Sugar (1937), and two years later played her first and most memorable movie role, that of Prissy, the young slave in this film. After being typecast as a sobbing maid in several films of the 1940s, she grew tired of the image and retired from films in 1947, returning in the early 1970s when better roles were available. After playing passive roles under Cecil B. DeMille, VICTOR JORY (1902-1982) was U.S. Coast Guard boxing and wrestling champion. He played occasional leads, but more often character parts in films, often as a heavy. In Gone with the Wind he was cast as Jonas Wilkerson, a field overseer. Jory's other films included A Midsummer Night's Dream (1935), Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1938), Man of Conquest (1940), The Miracle Worker (1962) and Papillon (1973). He played Lamont Cranston in a serialization of The Shadow (1940). Margaret Mitchell did not want to become closely involved in production of the film. She delegated SUSAN MYRICK (1893-1978), a close personal friend and Georgia journalist, as technical advisor on the film. She saved the film from some serious gaffes, such as the cotton being picked in April.Of these signers, only de Haviland and Rutherford were still living in late 2010. BERNARD L. SOLARI had his own association with the film. He took now-famous pictures of the Loew's Grand Theatre in Atlanta, site of the movie's much ballyhooed premier, after the structure was destroyed by fire in 1978. Slip case lightly soiled and worn. Book in fine condition.

      Wydawnictwo Ministerstwa Obrony Narodowej; Faber and Faber 1961 - Stanisław Lem (1961 and 1971) 'Solaris', the true first edition published in Polish by Wydawnictwo Ministerstwa Obrony Narodowej in 1961; as well as the UK first edition published by Faber and Faber in 1971. A landmark science fiction novel which was first translated into French in 1964. The first English-language translation only appeared in 1970 in the US. Adapted three times as a movie (in 1968 by Nirenburg; the best known Tarkowsky adaptation from 1972; and the recent Soderbergh film from 2002). A philosophical and intelligent science fiction read that has had a huge impact on the genre. Condition: the Polish edition is very good. It is a paperback original so time takes its toll on the paper especially on Communist quality paper. The dust jacket is remarkably well preserved as depicted. There are no previous owner's inscriptions or any other internal damage. The first print run was with 10,000 copies  modest, but not small in modern terms. However, very few people cared about book collecting in Poland especially during Communism when people worried about our issues. Moreover, paper itself was a scarce commodity in the 1980s and people often donated old books for toilet paper (no joke). Hence, this is a very hard to find first edition. The UK first edition is in near fine shape with slight shelf wear and just a whiff of foxing to the upper page block (hardly visible). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Bousquet (Docteur en droit en 1923 avec une thèse sur "L'évolution sociale en Hollande 1914-1922"), économiste de l'école de Pareto et Schumpeter, mais également islamisant de l'école de Goldziher et Snouck-Hugronje, professeur aux facultés d'Alger puis de Bordeaux. Peu après sa thèse, il participa à la mission de la SDN pour la restauration financière de l'Autriche. Georges-H. Bousquet résumait ainsi ses travaux en Islamologie (dans les mélanges qui lui furent consacrés dans les Cahiers Pareto en 1965) : "Très en gros, on pourrait dire à ce sujet que je suis parti intellectuellement de la Loi rituelle, morale et juridique de l'Islâm (fiqh) et ai essayé de voir dans quelle mesure cette étrange casuistique (dont j'ai traduit de nombreux textes et dont j'ai exposé les règles dans divers ouvrages) est appliquée, ou non, dans les sociétés musulmanes d'Afrique du Nord surtout (mais également en Indonésie). En particulier, mon attention s'est portée sur le rituel ('ibâdates) presque toujours systématiquement négligé par mes prédécesseurs". Français
