This auction is for a first edition and first printing of the 1961 culinary classic "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" by Simone Beck, Louisette Bertholle and Julia Child. This meets the points of the first edition and first printing, as the copyright page indicates "FIRST EDITION" in bold lettering with no printing date, while the authors' note page is dated August 1961. This includes the original paper dust-jacket, which has the original price of $10.00 on the inside front. The dust-jacket shows some wear, especially near the top, where there is a small piece torn out in the front and in the back. The inside of the book is in very nice condition with no significant staining, bent pages or wear. There is no writing inside the book. This book appears to have seen little, if any, use in the kitchen or anywhere else. Please consult the photos for an accurate representation of the condition, and please feel free to ask any questions. This fantastic book represents an important milestone in the history of culinary publishing, and it is highly unusual to find one that retains its original dust-jacket. This would make the perfect gift for any fan of the legendary Julia Child, or the ideal addition to your rare cookbook collection. I would like to receive payment within 1 week unless other arrangements have been made before the auction's end. If you win more than one item, I will be glad to combine shipping whenever possible. Please email me if you have any questions about the payments we accept. Thanks for looking! [Attributes: First Edition]

Greene, Graham
Heinemann, London, 1961. First edition of this Greene novel set in a leproserie on the upper reaches of a tributary of the Congo River in Africa. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title page, "For Anthony Hobson from Graham Greene." The recipient Anthony Hobson, auctioneer and book collector, was a director at Sotheby's and friend of Greene's. He successfully organized the sale of the Greene's manuscripts at Sotheby's in 1964. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Dust jacket design by Lacey Everett. Greene dedicated A Burnt-Out Case to Docteur Michel Lechat, a medical doctor at a leper colony in Yonda in Africa (one of a number of such colonies Greene had visited in the Congo and the Cameroons, which had inspired his novel). In his dedication to Lechat, Greene writes: "Doctor Colin has borrowed from you his experience of leprosy and nothing else. Doctor Colin's leproserie is not your leproserie. From the fathers of your Mission I have stolen the Superior's cheroots--that is all, and from your Bishop the boat that he was so generous as to lend me for a journey up the Ruki." In reference to the characters in the novel, Greene writes: "It would be a waste of time for anyone to try to identify Querry, the Ryckers, Parkinson, Father Thomas--they are formed from the floatsum of thirty years as a novelist." Commenting on his literary intentions in the work, Greene wrote that it was, "an attempt to give dramatic expression to various types of belief, half-belief, and non-belief, in the kind of setting, removed from world-politics and house-hold-preocc … [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]

Japan: The Japan Council against A & H Bombs, 1961. Hardcover. Very good. Tomatsu, Shomei and Domon, Ken. Square quarto size, [140] pp. The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States have led to numerous examinations of the war, violence, and death surrounding the attacks. "document 1961" is a collection of haunting photographs by two brilliant and acclaimed Japanese photographers, Shomei Tomatsu (1930-2012) and Ken Domon (1909-1990). The photographs capture the rawness and vulnerability of the people and landscape after the bombings, with images that are often dark and up-close to their subjects. The work of Tomatsu and Domon is separated by a three-page fold-out painting, printed in purple, by husband and wife Iri and Toshiko Maruki; the paintings show several panels of bodies, distorted and indistinguishable, matching the gritty tone of the photographs. ___DESCRIPTION: Full white cloth with grey spiral designs on the front and rear boards, grey lettering on the spine, endpapers with black-and-white photographs, title page in brown, black-and-white photographs by Shomei Tomatsu and Ken Domon throughout, including one three-page fold-out monochrome painting in purple by Iri Maruki and Toshiko Maruki; square quarto size (11" by 11"), 140 unnumbered pages. ___CONDITION: Volume is very good, with a strong, square text block, the interior is clean and bright, and entirely free of prior owner markings; cloth boards have overall light soiling, very light rubbing to the head and tail of the spine, corners are gently bumped, and there is one small crease to a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vostell, Wolf and François Dufrêne
Wuppertal: Verlag der Kalender, 1961. Large square octavo (29.3 × 30.5 cm). Original stiff printed wrappers; Chinese-style folded leaves; ca. 64 pp. A few stains and light toning to wrappers; internally very good. Collaborative bookwork by Vostell, a leading exponent of Décollage, and Dufrêne, a leading Nouveau Réaliste artist and writer, consisting of concrete poems by Dufrêne accompanied by 23 original screenprints by Vostell in black and white, with additional textual material by Jouffroy at rear. A strikingly beautiful work, with typographical flourishes throughout as well as screenprints with subtle gradations of grey tones. A radical and monumental work, hinting at influence by the "Affichiste" Mimmo Rotella, and prefiguring the proliferation of concrete and visual poetry and works incorporating words in the subsequent decade. Unstated limited edition (an authoritative source informs us that 300 copies were printed). As of November 2019, KVK and OCLC locate only five copies in North America. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

(No other publication dates)The book is in near fine condition - black clothed hardback cover with skeletal hand motif to front board and gilt lettering to spine. No issues other than very minor bumping at spine foot. The interior is clean and white throughout and has no age related issues whatsoever. I would class the condition as fine other than for the one issue which is a red book shop stamp at the foot of the front paste down page. The leaf ends are also perfectly white and give the book an extremely attractive tidy appearance. The spine and binding are fine and book is tight. The dust jacket is the correct version for this book and is in very good + condition with only a couple of issues to note that prevents me stating it as near fine. The front cover has some faint rubbing at the top edge and there is some small marks at the very edge top and bottomof rear flap. The one real issue of note is some rubbing and chipping at spine top. (See Photos) There is no sun related damaged and the covers and flaps are clean, bright and unmarked. The front flap has a blurb about this book and Ian Fleming; this continues to rear flap. The price is unclipped showing as 15s. net at the foot of front flap.

Full-bound in black cloth (no book-club deboss found) with skeletal hand blindstamped to front board. "Ian Fleming" signed to title page (name only.) We had this from a British seller who reported he was discouraged from listing this as a bona fide signed copy, since Fleming was believed to have always signed to the blank FFE, never to the title page. Signature is a reasonably good match for others found Online, but we claim no expertise in authenticating Ian Fleming signatures; potential buyers are urged to consult the attached scans and make their own judgments. 254 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Kennedy, John F. (Joe DiMaggio)

Original Inaugural Committee invitation to the inauguration of John Fitzgerald Kennedy on Friday, January 20, 1961 from the collection of baseball legend Joe DiMaggio.

After their honeymoon in Japan and Korea, the couple returned to Hollywood where tension began to build due to DiMaggio's discomfort with his wife's vivacious image. In September of 1954, on the New York City set of the director Billy Wilder's The Seven Year Itch, DiMaggio became irate as Monroe filmed the now-famous scene in which she stands over a subway grate with the air blowing up her skirt. The couple were divorced in October 1954, only 274 days after the day of their marriage ceremony. In May of 1962, Monroe took a break from shooting the 20th Century Fox film Something's Got to Give, to sing "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" on stage at President John F. Kennedy's early birthday celebration at Madi … [Click Below for Full Description]
