        Vivre sa vie (Candid still photograph of Anna Karina on the set)

      Paris: Les Fils de la Pléiade, 1962. Vintage oversize black-and-white borderless single weight still press photograph, shot on location during the filming of the 1962 French film, featuring Anna Karina and two unknown extras in a brothel scene. Based on the novel "Où en est la prostitution" by Marcel Sacotte, who also contributed to the screenplay. Godard's least "intellectual" film is also one of his finest, a touching drama about a college-educated woman who drifts into prostitution out of boredom with the working world. The Criterion Collection: "Vivre sa vie" was a turning point for Godard and remains one of his most dynamic films, combining brilliant visual design with a tragic character study. The lovely Anna Karina, Godard's greatest muse, plays Nana, a young Parisian who aspires to be an actress but instead ends up a prostitute, her downward spiral depicted in a series of discrete tableaux of daydreams and dances. Featuring some of Karina and Godard's most iconic moment, from Karina's movie theater vigil with "The Passion of Joan of Arc" to her seductive pool-hall strut. A landmark of the French New Wave that still surprises at every turn. Set and shot in Paris. In a custom museum-quality frame, archivally mounted, with UV glass. 9.25 x 12 inches. Near Fine. Criterion Collection 512.

A rare and moving presentation copy, inscribed by Sylvia Plath to her friend and close confidant Winifred Davies. On moving to the ramshackle thatched house Court Green, North Tawton in September 1961, a pregnant Sylvia quickly formed a close friendship with the midwife who delivered her son Nicholas. Living only three houses away, Winifred was a constant support to Sylvia and also her mother Aurelia (who lodged with Winifred when visiting Sylvia during July and August 1962, and relied on Winifred for updates on Sylvia?s situation after returning to America). It was during this period ? from September 1961 to December 1962, that Sylvia wrote most of the Ariel poems and finished editing her novel The Bell Jar. When Sylvia and the children moved to London in December 1962, Winifred?s son Garnett lived close by, visiting on several occasions, the last in early February for a lunch invitation, to be informed on arrival that Sylvia had died three days before. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

        Silent Spring

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1962. First edition. Octavo, original green cloth. Signed by Rachel Carson on the half title page. Small name on the front free endpaper, near fine in a near fine dust jacket with some rubbing to the spine. A very nice example. In the late 1950s, Carson turned her attention to conservation, especially environmental problems that she believed were caused by synthetic pesticides. The result was Silent Spring, which brought environmental concerns to the American public. "Her book is a cry to the reading public to help curb private and public programs which by use of poisons will end by destroying life on earth. ... Miss Carson, with the fervor of an Ezekiel, is trying to save nature and mankind" (The New York Times). Silent Spring "became a runaway bestseller, with international reverberations It is well crafted, fearless and succinct Even if she had not inspired a generation of activists, Carson would prevail as one of the greatest nature writers in American letters" (Mattheissen, Time).
