Reeves, Rosser
New York: Borzoi/ Alfred A. Knopf, 1961. First trade edition, published after the privately printed Ted Bates edition. Octavo, original blue cloth, slipcase. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper, "With a promise that this is a very short, short book! Rosser Reeves Oct 8, 1962. Fine in the original glassine wrapper in a fine slipcase. Rare signed. Rarely has a book about advertising created such a commotion as this brilliant account of the principles of successful advertising. Published in 1961, Reality in Advertising was listed for weeks on the general best-seller lists, and is today acknowledged to be advertising's greatest classic. It has been translated into twelve languages-French, Japanese, Spanish, Dutch, German, Italian, Portuguese, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Hebrew-and has been published in twenty-one separate editions in fifteen countries. Leading business executives, and the advertising cognoscenti, hail it as "the best book for professionals that has ever come out of Madison Avenue." (For typical comments see back of jacket.) Rosser Reeves says: "The book attempts to formulate certain theories of advertising, many quite new, and all based on 30 years of intensive research." These theories, whose value has been proved in the marketplace, all revolve around the central concept that success in selling a product is the key criterion of advertising. In the course of explaining his own hard-headed approach, Mr. Reeves shows why the ad campaigns for many products are just so much money poured down the drain. He has some devastating things to say ab … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gorey, Edward
London: Constable, 1961. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Gorey, Edward. First printing of the first UK edition, sixmo size, 60 pp., signed by Edward Gorey. Edward St. John Gorey (1925-2000) is well-known and well-loved for his poisonously funny picture books which are complex, humorous, serious, and provocative. This work, "The Gorey Alphabet", is the first printing of the British edition of "The Fatal Lozenge" (same book with a different title). While "Lozenge" was first published as a paperback the year prior (in 1960), this British version was published as a hardbound book (which was issued without a dust jacket) for which Gorey provided two original illustrations for the front and back covers; therefore, the boards differ from the "Lozenge" wraps. "Lozenge" / "Gorey Alphabet" was Edward Gorey's first published alphabet book. "Each letter of the alphabet is represented by a character which appears in a four line poem (Apparition, Baby, Cad, Drudge, etc.), each poem being accompanied by a single illustration. Apart from being in alphabetical order, the individual poems do not relate to each other, but rather each turn of the page reveals a new personage who is involved in some sordid activity or misfortune" (n.b., from the web site of the Goreyana Blogspot). As with most of Gorey's work, one winces a bit at the macabre story but cannot stop also laughing, nor can one stop reading.... ___DESCRIPTION: Illustrated paper-covered boards, two original illustrations by Gorey on the front and back in three colours, black lettering on the front and spine, this volum … [Click Below for Full Description]

In 1938, he debuted in Turismo Carretera, competing in a Ford V8. In 1940, he competed with Chevrolet, winning the Grand Prix International Championship and devoted his time to the Argentine Turismo Carretera becoming its champion, a title he successfully defended a year later. Fangio then competed in Europe between 1947 and 1949 where he achieved further success. He won the World Championship of Drivers five times--a record which stood for 47 years until beaten by Michael Schumacher--with four different teams (Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Maserati), a feat that has not been repeated. A member of the Formula 1 Hall of Fame, he is regarded by many as one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time and holds the highest winning percentage in Formula One - 46.15% - winning 24 of 53 Formula One races he entered. Fangio is the only Argentine driver to have won the Argentine Grand Prix, having won it four times in his career--the most of any driver.

"Mastering the Art of French Cooking" is for both seasoned cooks and beginners who love good food & long to reproduce at home the savory delights of the classic cuisine, from the historic Gallic masterpieces to the seemingly artless perfection of a dish of spring-green peas. This beautiful book, with over 100 instructive illustrations, is revolutionary in its approach because: It leads the cook infallibly from the buying and handling of raw ingredients, through each essential step of a recipe, to the final creation of a delicate confection. It breaks down the classic cuisine into a logical sequence of themes and variations rather than presenting an endless and diffuse catalogue of recipes; the focus is on key recipes th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Heller, Joseph
New York: Simon & Schuster, 1961. First edition of Heller's classic first book. Octavo, original blue cloth. Association coy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Joseph Collins, a victim & survivor of Catch-22, Joseph Heller." The recipient was a senior United States Army officer who served in World War II in both the Pacific and European Theaters of Operations, one of a few senior American commanders to do so. He was Chief of Staff of the United States Army during the Korean War. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Bookplate. Jacket design by Paul Bacon. Author's photograph by Seymour Linden. An exceptional association. "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). Basis for the 1970 film directed by Mike Nichols. The cast included Alan Arkin, Bob Balaban, Martin Balsam, Richard Benjamin, Olimpia Carlisi, Art Garfunkel, Jack Gilford … [Click Below for Full Description]

John McCabe
Doubleday. This is a unique copy of John McCabe's book "Mr. Laurel And Mr. Hardy," published in 1961. It has been signed and dated on both the front and back covers by Stan Laurel. Stan has inscribed it on the first page, as well as the author, John McCabe. More importantly - and what makes this copy unique, is that Stan has written humorous captions on 13 pages of photographs (captioning 20 photographs, in total). For example, next to a picture of Charlie Chaplin with Stan and the rest of the Fred Karno cast, Stan has written "A bunch of limeys!". Above a photo of Oliver Hardy posing with Lubin's football team, he's written "His College Days (San Quentin)!". This book once belonged to radio interviewer Ron Barry, who interviewed Stan and was evidently involved with the formation of the "Sons of the Desert" some time later. Both Stan and McCabe have inscribed the book for Ron (see photos). This book was much loved, obviously. Although I've had plastic on it since the day I got it many years ago, the dust jacket is worn and chipping, with various tears, and looks quite fragile. The autographs on the front and back, though, are largely intact (see photos). The binding is loose, and there's yellow marks from scotch tape where it was once taped to the book itself. There are two photographs glued into the book - both polaroids of Stan's grave. The area around John McCabe's signature is slightly torn - when I got it, there was a piece of paper taped over the signature, so perhaps the two had a falling out - who knows! Mr. Barry has also written in the "filmography" section - indi … [Click Below for Full Description]
