FLEMING, Ian.
London: Jonathan Cape, 1961. London: Jonathan Cape,, 1961. Octavo. Original dark brown boards, spine lettered in gilt, skeletal hand motif on front board blocked in blind (Gilbert's binding A).

First edition, first impression, of the ninth Bond book. Ian Fleming's novel Thunderball incorporated material from an unproduced screenplay he had worked on in 1958 in collaboration with Kevin McClory, Jack Whittingham, and Ivar Bryce, with the result that Fleming found himself in a well-publicised case in the High Court defending himself against McClory's accusations of plagiarism, though Fleming and McClory eventually settled out of court.

1961. Facsimile. This facsimile of the Gutenberg Bible is one of the truly great works of art in the publishing world in the last century. It was produced by Pageant Books of Paterson, New Jersey in 1961. The highest quality paper and printing techniques were used to produce a true work of art and a book that will last for many centuries. I've been privileged to own this two volume set for a couple of years now and would gladly keep it for the rest of my life, but I have run out of storage space for my books so am reluctantly letting it go. If you are a collector of fine books and have the space to display them, they will make a fine addition to your library. Size of each volume is roughly 17 inches by 12 inches. Each volume weighs about 26 pounds. Condition is truly excellent for these two books. I treated them with great care. You will see other facsimiles of the Gutenberg Bible for sale at a much cheaper price, but they can't begin to equal the quality of these books! Shipped with USPS Media Mail.

LEVI

Edition originale de la traduction française d'une des oeuvres de référence sur le système concentrationnaire nazi.D'une insigne rareté, cette traduction en francais du premier livre de Primo Lévi passera aussi inaperçu que l'édition originale italienne parue en 1947. Il faudra attendre le suicide de son auteur en 1987 pour qu'une seconde édition francaise soit publiée et que ce témoignage fondamental sur la Shoah devienne cette oeuvre emblématique de la littérature concentrationnaire.la traduction de michèle Causse reflète la difficiculté de transcrire la parole des témoins de l'indicible. Mais c'est surtout le refus inconscient d'entendre cette parole qui contribua à l'échec de ce premier livre de Primo Levi à l'instar de celui de L'espèce Humaine de Robert Antelme également écrit et publié une première fois en 1947.Ce n'est d'ailleurs que durant cette décenie que paraitront successivement quelques unes des plus grandes oeuvres sur la Shoah : La nuit de Elie Wiesel, 1958 ; Les bagages de sable de Anna Langfus, 1962 ; Le grand voyage de Jorge Semprun, 1963 ; La trêve de Primo Levi, 1963, Aucun de nous ne reviendra de Charlotte Delbo, 1965 ...Une petite et claire tache en pied du dos, sinon rare et bel exemplaire de la première traduction du plus important ouvrage de Primo Levi. *** [English transla … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stanislaw Lem
Wydawnictwo Faber. Polish first edition is very good, UK first edition very good plus. 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 very good plus/ near fine with slight shelf wear and just a whiff of foxing to the upper page block (hardly visible). First and Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]

1961. Facsimile. This facsimile of the Gutenberg Bible is one of the truly great works of art in the publishing world in the last century. It was produced by Pageant Books of Paterson, New Jersey in 1961. The highest quality paper and printing techniques were used to produce a true work of art and a book that will last for many centuries. I've been privileged to own this two volume set for a couple of years now and would gladly keep it for the rest of my life, but I have run out of storage space for my books so am reluctantly letting it go. If you are a collector of fine books and have the space to display them, they will make a fine addition to your library. Size of each volume is roughly 17 inches by 12 inches. Each volume weighs about 26 pounds. Condition is truly excellent for these two books. I treated them with great care. You will see other facsimiles of the Gutenberg Bible for sale at a much cheaper price, but they can't begin to equal the quality of these books! Shipped with USPS Media Mail.

Maurice Sendak
1961. Maurice Sendak SIGNED limited edition lithograph, featuring an image from "Little Bear's Visit" a book that Sendak issued with author Else Holmelund Minarik by Harper and Brothers in 1961. I assume this undated piece came out to correspond with the release of the book. This is #117 of 500 produced "for the friends of the author and the artist." Extremely early and uncommon. The Little Bear books are considered classics and have remained in print since they first came out. The lithograph is glued at the top edge to a browned paper with a window cut out. I believe both sheets were not produced using archival paper and have not aged well. There is major sunning to both. The litho is 9" x 12" approximately. The sheet it is glued to is 11" x 14" approximately. Also, included is an extra folder (with an window cut) to house the litho, but it is useful only for historical purposes.

JACKSON, Martha and George Brecht, Jim Dine, Walter Gaudnek,
New York: Martha Jackson Gallery, 1961. First Edition. Thin narrow quarto, stapled. Exhibition catalogue for a show at Martha Jackson Gallery, held from May 25 through June 23, 1961. Contains artist statements by George Brecht, Jim Dine, Walter Gaudnek, Allan Kaprow, Claes Oldenberg, and Robert Whitman. A seminal show of downtown avant-garde work that would soon be labeled as "Pop Art" (though Jill Johnston worried in a Village Voice review that Martha Jackson had lost her commercial acumen). Especially notable for an early version Oldenberg's "Store" concept, explained in his most well known piece of writing, the Gisnberg-esque beat manifesto "I Am For...". Oldenberg's "The Store" would open as a fully realized concept on 2nd Street later the same year. Some significant creasing, chipping and overall wear, chiefly along the page-edges; very good in printed wrappers. Nonetheless a scarce survival; OCLC locates two copies. [Attributes: First Edition]

CLAUSER, John A.
[Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1961. Fine. Original painting. Measuring 29.75" x 23" in 37.75" x 31.5" frame. A couple dings to the wooden frame, else fine. Signed by the artist John A. Clauser ("Clauser") in the lower right corner. An attractive painting of an ACME supermarket from the early Sixties with period cars parked in the foreground and appropriately garbed patrons (nearly all women in dresses) walking to and from the store. Though undated it was likely painted for ACME in 1961 when the company debuted its new "A" frame style stores and new teardrop logo (leaving behind its original script logo of the 1950s). This is likely one of the original architectural designs with a label on the rear that reads: "John A. Clauser / registered architect / 2036 Rittenhouse Sq."

Giovanni Treccani degli Alfieri; Adolfo Ventrui
Banca Popolare di Bergamo, 1961. The Bible of Borso d'Este is a two volume manuscript of illuminated miniatures executed between 1455 and 1461 by a team of artists directed by Taddeo Crivelli and Franco dei Russi. In 1923, the businessman Giovanni Treccani acquired in Paris, for the enormous sum of 5 million lire, the Borso d'Este Bible, that was due to be sold in America, and donated it to the Kingdom of Italy. On his initiative, various other copies have been created. The original miniatures are held in the Biblioteca Estense di Modena. Every page of the Bible is decorated with an elegant frame of scrolls and other ornaments, surrounding two columns of texts. The margins contain various scenes, especially in the lower parts, where one often finds scenes drawn in perspective, borrowing from advances in painting of the time. Scenes are also depicted between the columns of text, usually next to the capital or illuminated letters. In the volutes in the corners, there are often animals, depicted with lively imagination that is part of the courtly style of the time, and often tied to heraldic symbols of Borso and his family. Borso d'Este (1413-1471) was Duke of Ferrara, and the first Duke of Modena, which he ruled from 1450 until his death. He was a member of the House of Este. This high quality reproduction is bound in full-leather with a silver ornate emblem applied to the front of each volume and housed in velvet slipcases. The approximately 1,300 page manuscript is reproduced primarily in black and white with 12 sheets reproduced in colour and gold. The introductory text is … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scott Carpenter, Gus Grissom, Alan B Shepard, John Glenn Jr., Walter W. Schirra Jr, Gordon Cooper Jr., Donald K Slayton" on free front endpaper in various inks. Carpeter's signature appears to have been signed in pencil then traced over, possibly for aesthetic reasons. These autographs show evidence that it was early in their career, The mostly signed with full name, middle initial and "Jr." in three cases, which many lost over time as autographs became more requested. 8" x 5.5", pp. 5-224,with B&W photos and illustrations throughout. Text block is clean, with some dark fade on portions of the end paper. DJ has wear at the extremities, along the edges and small tears at the front edges of the spine, now appropriately protected in mylar. Caiden was a prolific author, especially on subjects of aviation, aeronautics and science fiction. This early book about the dawn of the space race chronicles the details of the U. S. Space Program and the men who dared. Provenance: Original owner was Hal Richey, Commander of the Naval Weapons Test Center in China Lake, CA. His name and address is in pencil on rear end paper. Adjacent to Edwards Airforce Base, the China Lake facility is where the astronauts trained and flew. As Manager of the facility it is likely he had first person access to these astronauts. "On May 5, 1961, the United States sent its first man into space, when Astronaut Alan B Shepard rocketed upward from Cape Canaveral, Florida, a … [Click Below for Full Description]

The book is complete with dust jacket and includes many illustrations and mounted plates in colors, signed in pencil by Chagall in colophon. The colophon mistakenly describes the print that accompany the deluxe edition as a lithograph instead of the etching with aquatint that Chagall especially made for this edition (Cramer n. 48) The Etching comes in a separate portfolio in red cloth matching the box where the book is guarded, and is numbered in pencil on the left bottom corner.
