      Verona: Officina Bodoni, 1961 (London: Faber & Faber). 8 x 11 1/4. (9), 11- 52, (1 ) pages. Vellum-backed marbled boards with matching slipcase. The slipcase was too tight for both for this publication and the Four Quartets which was issued in a similar format; it has usually split with use and frequently resulted in wear to the cover edges. The case on this copy has been rehabilitated by a local binder who has covered/reinforced the joints with green cloth. There is very slight wear to the edges, and finger soil on the spine. Nearly fine copy. One of 300 numbered copies signed by Eliot. Designed and printed by Hans Mardersteig in his Dante type on Magnani paper.

        Comment c'est

      Les éditions de minuit. First edition on ordinary paper.Precious copy inscribed by Beckett to his friend the painter Geer (Van Velde) and his wife Lise.Slightly discolored spine."What to say of the sliding planes, the shimmering contours, the cut-out figures in the fog, the balance that any little thing can break, breaking and re-forming themselves under our very eyes? How to talk about the colors that breathe and pant? Of the swarming stasis? Of this world without weight, without force, without shadow? Here everything moves, swims, fells, comes back, falls apart, re-forms. Everything stops, non-stop. One would say it's the revolt of the internal molecules of a stone a split second before its disintegration. That is literature" (The van Veldes' Art, or the World and the Trousers, in Cahiers d'Art n°11-12, Paris 1945).Beckett here is not talking - despite how it may appear - about his literary oeuvre, but about the paintings of Geer Van Velde, going on to add a few lines later "[Bram] Van Velde paints distance. G[eer] Van Velde paints succession." This elegy, published on the occasion of the double exhibition of the Van Veldes (Geer at Maeght's and Bram at the Galerie Mai) is the first important text on these painters, more or less unknown to the public at the time: "We've only just started spouting nonsense about the Van Velde brothers, and I'm the first. It's an honor." This is also the first critical text written directly in French by a young Irish writer who had not, as yet, published anything in France.Thus, the first and most important of Beckett's writings on art, composed at the dawn of his literary career, establishes - right from the start - a fundamental relationship between his developing work and his friends' art: "Thus this text has often been read in a hollow or in the mirror, as one of the rare designations of Beckett's poetry (to come) by the man himself, a sort of anamorphic program of writing," (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique by Pierre Vilar).A real statement of dramaturgical intent, this fundamental text whose introspective value Beckett lays out from the introduction on ("one does nothing but tell stories with words") ushers in the writer's most fruitful creative period. In essence, like Apollinaire and Cendrars, Beckett draws from the artistic problems of his contemporaries the catalyst of his own future writing through "the deepest questioning of narrative, figurative or poetical presuppositions" (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur).The major influence of modern painting on the narrative structure - or destructuring - of Beckett's drama and novels would be pointed out and examined by a number of thinkers, among them Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva and Maurice Blanchot. It was, in fact, with the art of the Van Veldes (first Geer then Bram) that Beckett began to formalize this desire to translate the pictorial question into dramaturgical terms. Thus it was that he rejected Nicolas de Staël's set design for Godot, since: "the set must come out of the text without adding anything to it. As for the visual comfort of the audience, you can imagine how much I care. Do you really think you can listen with the backdrop of Bram's set, or see anything other than him?" (Letter to Georges Duthuit, 1952).When he met Geer in 1937, "Beckett was going through a major existential crisis and had just been reworking his first novel, Murphy, which had been rejected by a great many publishers. He was lost in alcohol, leaving Ireland and moving once and for all to Paris" (Le Pictural dans l'œuvre de Beckett, Lassaad Jamoussi). He returned from a long artistic journey in Germany, where he was marked by classical works as well as contemporary art - it was during this journey that he discovered Caspar David Friedrich's Two Men Contemplating the Moon, his source for Waiting for Godot.Art was thus at the heart of his creative thinking and the friendship that would tie him to Geer and later his brother Bram and their sister Jacoba (with whom his relationship may have been more than merely friendly), and which would profoundly influence his life and writing. His first writing on art is a short piece on Geer Van Velde, whose works he pressed on his new lover Peggy Guggenheim when she set up her new London gallery. Despite the relative failure of the exhibition (which followed Kandinsky's), he got his friend a one-year scholarship from Peggy. James Knowlson even thinks that "if Beckett maintained close links with Peggy for a long time, it was first and foremost because she could be convinced to give his artist friends a serious helping hand, starting with Geer Van Velde" (in Beckett, p. 474). Enigmatic, the little piece that Beckett wrote at the time at Peggy's request already contained a dramaturgical kernel of thought: " Believes painting should mind its own business, i.e. colors. i.e no more say Picasso than Fabritius, Vermeer. Or inversely."   Slower to develop, his friendship with Bram and interest in the latter's painting slowly changed Beckett's outlook on Geer's art and when, ten years after his first meeting the brothers, he wrote The World and the Trousers,  Beckett brought up to date a duality symbolized by the title, taken from an anecdote given as a legend to the article. The world is the "imperfect" work of God, made in six days, to which the tailor compares the perfection of his trousers, made over six months.The link between this anecdote and the Van Velde brothers is perhaps to be found in the second essay Beckett devoted to them, in 1948, Peintres de l'empêchement [Painters of the Problem] (Derrière le miroir n° 11/12) : "One of them said: I cannot see the object in order to represent it because I am who I am. There are always two sorts of problems - the object-problem and the 'eye-problem... Geer Van Velde is an artist of the former sort... Bram Van Velde of the latter."Resistance of the object or impotence of the artist, this tale, the "true primary narrative core in kôan zen form," (P. Vilar) would later find itself scattered throughout Beckett's work and would more specifically take centre stage in Endgame, whose similarity, by the by, with the art of Geer Van Velde was noted by Roger Blin. "At the time, he was friends with the Dutch brothers Geer and Bram Van Velde, both painters. Geer was a painter in the style of Mondrian. I have the feeling that Beckett saw Endgame as a painting by Mondrian with very tidy partitions, geometric separations and musical geometry," (R. Blin, Conversations avec Lynda Peskine in Revue d'Esthétique).    Beckett's growing affinity for Bram Van Velde's work and the energy he put into promoting his work, especially to the galerie Maeght or his friend the art historian Georges Duthuit, was no doubt to the detriment of his relationship with Geer. Nonetheless, despite some misunderstandings, their friendship remained unbroken; as did the silent but anxious dialogue that the writer maintained with the art of the younger Van Velde brother, two of whose large canvases he owned. "The big painting by Geer finally gave me a sign. Shame that it should have turned out so badly. But perhaps that's not true after all" (letter to Georges Duthuit, March 1950). "Geer shows great courage. Ideas that are a little cutting, but maybe only in appearance. I have always had a great respect for them. But not enough, I think" (letter to Mania Péron, August 1951)The death of Geer Van Velde in 1977 affected Beckett deeply and coincided with a period of intense nostalgia during which the writer decided to give himself over to "a great clear-out" of his house so as to live between "walls as grey as their owner." Confiding his state of mind to his friend, the stage designer Jocelyn Herbert, Beckett bore witness to the indefatigable affection he had nurtured for the painter over forty years: "more canvases on display, including the big Geer Van Velde behind the piano."A precious witness to the friendship of these fellow travelers who had, ever since checking the veracity of the game of chess played by Murphy and Mr. Endon for Beckett's first novel, tackled together the great challenges of modernity: "It's that, deep down, they don't care about painting. What they're interested in is the human condition. We'll come back to that" (Beckett on the Van Velder brothers in The World and the Trousers).Spine lightly sunned as usual for Molloy and L'Innomable, a tiny tear (not serious) to foot of spine of the latter.  Les éditions de minuit Paris 1961 12x19cm broché

      Arthur Barker Ltd, UK 1961 - Ghita Mary Lindell (11 September 1895 in Sutton, London - 1986 in Paris). Lindell was born to a wealthy family in Surrey, England. Her mother, Gertrude Colls, was of the Colls family, the daughter of a successful architect. During the First World War, she served as a member of the Voluntary Aid Detachment (VAD) and subsequently with the Secours aux Blessés, a division of the French Red Cross. She was decorated for her bravery and service by the French, receiving a Croix de Guerre in 1918. She was also decorated by the Tsarist Russian government. She married the Count de Milleville, a member of the French aristocracy, and settled permanently in France. During World War II, she participated in the evacuation of three Allied pilots on the "Pat" line (named after "Pat O'Leary", an alias of Albert Guérisse). Despite a narrow escape, which led to her brief refuge in her native Britain, she joined MI9 and returned to occupied France in 1942, where she learned that as the Comtesse de Milleville, she had been sentenced to death. She would have organised a new escape line, the "Marie-Claire" line, under her new name. She continued to work in France until severely wounded, captured and deported to Ravensbrück concentration camp at the end of 1943. She survived in the camp hospital and was liberated by the Swedish Red Cross in 1945. - CONDITION & DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK: The original first impression dustjacket houses this amazing book.

To Jack Dreyfus, Dreyfus and Company, Two Broadway, New York City. Fine condition.In part, ""I am enclosing my check for $40,000 to Dreyfus and Co. for the purpose of opening my first brokerage account. In accordance with our discussions, I would like you to apply whatever portion of this amount is required to purchase a four year call on 1000 shares of Poloroid stock … I have no knowledge whatever of the mechanics of the stock market since my capital position has been such in public life that I have not been able to make any investments in stocks … I know there are risks involved investing in stocks…"" Read the entire in the image above.Financier Jack Dreyfus (1913-2009) was the founder of the Dreyfus Fund. In 1964, Life magazine called him the “Maverick Wizard Behind the Wall Street Lion,” in reference to the emblem of his fund and its aggressive marketing. Dreyfus, it said, was “the most singular and effective personality to appear in Wall Street since the days of Joseph Kennedy and Bernard Baruch.” His paternal grandfather was a first cousin of Alfred Dreyfus, the protagonist of the late 19th-century anti-Semitic scandal known as the Dreyfus Affair. Dreyfus sold his mutual fund company in 1970 and established the Dreyfus Health Foundation to pursue other medical applications for Dilantin which had cured his depression in the 1960s. In 2000, Dreyfus said that an account in The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon by Anthony Summers (New York: Viking, 2000) that he gave Dilantin to Richard Nixon in 1968 was correct. Dreyfus said he gave Nixon a bottle of 1,000 capsules of 100 milligrams each ''when his mood wasn't too good,'' and later gave him another bottle of 1,000 capsules."

        François Berthoud Facsimile..

      4, 40 Bl., zahlr. farb. blattgrosse Abb., Kart., Tadell Text engl. Vorzugsausgabe mit signiertem und num. Tiegeldruck der Druckerei Hürlimann. Text von Holly Brubach.- Der Schweizer François Berthoud zählt zu den herausragendsten Modeillustratoren der Gegenwart. 1961 geboren und an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Lausanne ausgebildet, entwickelte er früh eine unverkennbare Handschrift in der grafischen Umsetzung und Illustration von Kleidern, Schuhen, Taschen, Parfums und Accessoires. Seine expressiven, hochästhetischen Linolschnitte, Tropfenbilder und Computergrafiken begleiten unzählige Modekampagnen - von Yves Saint Laurent, über Bulgari bis zu Sonia Rykiel. Dabei ergänzen sich das dargestellte Objekt und Berthouds visuelle Interpretation davon zu einem atmosphärischen Gesamtwerk, das die Wahrnehmung und den Markterfolg eines Produktes wesentlich mitprägt. In dieser ersten umfassenden Ausstellung sind hunderte Originale, Skizzen und Arbeitsproben zu entdecken, aber auch ein filmisches Porträt, das seine Werkprozesse aufzeigt. Dabei fasziniert insbesondere der Einsatz analoger und digitaler Techniken, die sich gegenseitig befruchten und zu meisterhaften Resultaten führen.

        Jacqueline Kennedy Signed White House Print.

      1961 - White House photographic print taken in 1961 by White House photographer Cecil Stoughton. Boldly signed by Jacqueline Kennedy at the lower left. Stoughton took multiple photos in front of the White House fountains on the South Lawn when developing the 1961 Christmas Print. The final Christmas print, which showed more ducks positioned closer to the photographer, is derived from a different photograph taken moments before or after this mock-up. Here, the ducks are positioned on the far side of the pool and the camera was positioned at a slightly different angle than that used for the final Christmas Print. Matted and framed with a full length printed portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy after a painting. The entire piece measures 20.5 inches by 31 inches. Rare and desirable. When John F. Kennedy was sworn in as president on January 20, 1961, 31-year-old Jacqueline Kennedy became the third youngest First Lady in American history. As a presidential couple, the Kennedys differed from the Eisenhowers by their relative youth and their relationship with the media. Historian Gil Troy has noted that in particular, they "emphasized vague appearances rather than specific accomplishments or passionate commitments" and therefore fit in well in the early 1960s' "cool, TV-oriented culture". The discussion on Kennedy's fashion choices continued during her years in the White House, and she became a trendsetter, hiring American designer Oleg Cassini to design her wardrobe. She was the first First Lady to hire a press secretary, Pamela Turnure, and carefully managed her contact with the media, usually shying away from making public statements, and strictly controlling the extent to which her children were photographed. Portrayed by the media as the ideal woman, academic Maurine Beasley has stated that Kennedy "created an unrealistic media expectation for first ladies that would challenge her successors." Nevertheless, by attracting worldwide positive public attention, the First Lady gained allies for the White House and international support for the Kennedy administration and its Cold War policies. Although Kennedy stated that her priority as a First Lady was to take care of the President and their children, she also dedicated her time to the promotion of American arts and preservation of its history. Her main contribution was the restoration of the White House, but she also furthered the cause by hosting social events that brought together elite figures from politics and the arts. One of her unrealized goals was to found a Department of the Arts, but she did contribute to the establishment of the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment of the Humanities, established during Johnson's tenure.

        Typed Letter Signed about Noel Coward

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A brief typed letter signed from the great composer and lyricist to Albert "Doc" Sirmay, head of the music publisher Chappell and a close collaborator with Porter, thanking him for sending clippings and mentioning that he has sent a telegram to Noel Coward "for his opening" (of the 1961 musical Sail Away.) Dated September 30, 1961. 1 p. A few small stains, else fine. <br style=""><br>Composer, arranger and editor Albert "Doc" Sirmay was the music director of the leading music publishing firm Chappell. According to Mark Eden Horowitz, Sirmay can be considered a collaborator with Porter: he "worked closely with [Chappell's] roster of composer, including Kern, Gershwin, and especially Porter. Many of the published piano-vocal scores of standards of the mid-1920s to the mid-1960s owe their elegance, clarity, and playability to Sirmay. He could convert a lead sheet to a richly accompanied song; he could wed melodies to accompaniment figures to make the totality of a song playable on the piano; he was a master of chord voicings. Many of the Porter music manuscripts in both the Library and Yale collections are in Sirmay's clear and flowing hand." ("Cole Porter's Papers," in A Cole Porter Companion, p. 310.)<br style="">

This book was published in 1961 by Putnam. All first print issue points are present. No indication of reprint on copyright page; C22 on page 408; correct first state dust jacket. Condition: the book is in excellent fine condition with only the slightest of shelf wear. Everything is clean, no annoying inscriptions of any sorts; no lean, no smudges; nice green top stain as called for; vibrant lettering on spine. The dust jacket is very good, it is NOT clipped and shows creases, close tears and minor chipping to extremities. Otherwise very good and protected in removable mylar.

'Stranger in a Strange Land' is next to 'Starship Troopers' Heinlein's best known and most popular novel. It won the 1962 Hugo Award. Heinlein is a science fiction legend together with Arthur C Clarke; Philip K Dick; Frank Herbert; and Isaac Asimov. His first editions will always be highly collectible.

Several characters were recognisable as figures from the school, but only Miss Burstin, later Lady Mayoress of Banbury, objected. Heinemann agreed to 'amend all unsold copies of the book' (The Times, October 25, 1962) but actually pulped them. An extremely scarce title to find with such attributes.
