        Ankunft im Alltag. Erzählung.

      Berlin, Verlag Neues Leben, 1961. 1. Auflage 281 Seiten 8°, gebundene Ausgabe, hellbrauner Ganz-Leineneinband mit dunkelbraun geprägtem Titel auf Buchdeckel und -rücken. ohne Schutzumschlag, das Buch sauber und frisch, auf dem Vorsatz von der Autorin signiert und datiert (Hoy, 27.9.61). Brigitte Reimann (* 21. Juli 1933 in Burg - + 20. Februar 1973 in Ost-Berlin) war eine bekannte deutsche Schriftstellerin. Sie hatte eine intensive Brieffreundschaft mit Christa Wolf. Die Abiturienten Recha, Nikolaus und Curt absolvieren im Kombinat >>SchwarzePumpe<< ein praktisches Jahr. Jung, mit den unterschiedlichsten familiären Hintergründen und durch eine Art von Dreiecksbeziehung miteinander verbunden, lernen die drei den Arbeitsalltag in ihrer Brigade kennen: Rohre walzen, Ventile schleifen, Schichtdienst, Überstunden, Versammlungen. Zusammengehalten werden die Arbeiter, der Student, der Schwererziehbare und die Abiturienten von einem engagierten und zupackenden Meister. Selbst Curt, dem durch seinen Selbstdarstellungsdrang die Eingliederung ins Kollektiv besonders schwer fällt, bleibt am Ende von so viel Einsatz nicht unberührt. Für alle drei Abiturienten wird das Jahr zur erneuten Reifeprüfung: Curt lernt für seine Fehler einzustehen, Recha übertritt die Schwelle vom Mädchen zur Frau und Nikolaus, der Maler, findet zur Porträtzeichnung und damit zu einem neuen Blick auf Menschen. Signierte Exemplare von Brigitte Reimann sind äußerst selten und werden fast nie angeboten!! Versand D: 5,00 EUR signiert, signed, Brigitte Reimann, signierte Erstausgaben

        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.

"Catch-22, Joseph Heller's first and best-known novel, depicts a military world turned upside down. In Heller's World War II, a supplies manager has more power than a general, and anyone seeking a discharge on the grounds of insanity is declared sane enough to keep on fighting. When the novel appeared in 1961, World War II veterans appreciated its satire of the military bureaucracy and chaos of war. By the mid-1960's, it had become a cult classic among counterculture activists for its biting indictments of war. Many consider the novel to be the definitive statement of the modern antiwar position. The phrase 'Catch-22', symbolizing the absurdity of all institutional logic, has become a permanent part of our language" (NYPL Books of the Century 177).

        UNCLE SHELBY&#146;S ABZ BOOK / a primer for tender young minds

      Simon and Schuster 1961 - SILVERSTEIN (Shel): &#147;UNCLE SHELBY&#146;S ABZ BOOK / a primer for tender young minds&#148;. ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT for Silverstein&#146;s first &#147;children&#146;s&#148; 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: &#147;Simon and Schuster * New York * 1961&#148;. 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 &#147;bleeding&#148; through the outer margins of most leaves); disbound within pink paper (over black paper) wrappers with manuscript lettering on the front cover: &#147;Uncle Shelby&#146;s ABZ book by Shel the Sheller&#148;, and &#147;by Uncle Shelby&#148; on the rear wrapper (spine defective, chipped edges, light spotting). Original manuscript for Silverstein&#146;s wickedly amusing ABC book, published by Simon & Schuster in 1961. It is a clever send-up of the dull &#147;Dick and Jane&#148; type readers. This is Silverstein&#146;s first &#147;real&#148; book, preceded by two collections of cartoons: Take Ten (1955), and Here&#146;s My Plan (1960), as well as John Sack&#146;s Report from Practically Nowhere (1959) with comic vignettes by Silverstein. Uncle Shelby&#146;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: &#147;J is for Junkie&#148; has become &#147;J is for Joke&#148; and &#147;U is for Uncle Charlie&#148; is now &#147;U is for Uncle Shelby&#148; (Uncle Charlie had been mother&#146;s secret boyfriend). The book (and manuscript) also add a dedication to child readers commencing &#147;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 &#148;. We believe that our manuscript represents Silverstein&#146;s first draft of the expanded book version of Uncle Shelby&#146;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 &#147;for adults only&#148;. It is very rare that one is able to acquire an early manuscript of such high quality by a major children&#146;s book figure such as Shel Silverstein. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
