No. 1, 20th Century?'s Greatest Hits: 100 English-Language Books of Fiction. ¶ "A bizarre, three-legged race of a novel, Pale Fire is composed of a long narrative poem followed by a much longer set of footnotes written by an obsessive, increasingly deranged annotator. Charles Kinbote, a gay professor at a small New England college, may or may not be a noble-born expatriate from the exotic Eastern European principality of Zembla. He may or may not have stolen the manuscript he?'s annotating, which he is convinced is really all about him. He is unquestionably, unhealthily obsessed with John Shade, the placid, Robert Frost-like poet who composed the poem. Beyond that all bets are off, and the questions ramify without end. Pale Fire is the kind of novel you can happily get lost in: a house of mirrors with no exit, a labyrinth with no endpoint." (Time 100) N.B.

        Five Miles to Midnight [Le couteau dans la plaie] (Oversize double weight press photograph of Anthony Perkins on the set in Paris circa 1962)

      N.p.: N.p., 1962. Vintage oversize borderless double weight press photograph of actor Anthony Perkins on the set of the 1962 film, "Five Miles to Midnight," a thriller directed by Anatole Litvak, shot in Paris. A quite candid, with the actor smiling at his dressing table. An exceptional candid shot that reminds of us of how time has honored the deep subversiveness of Perkins' performances. His seamless blend of boy-next-door charm with deep, unsolvable psychological problems balanced with low affect, was evidenced repeatedly in his 1960s work. Others of same include the cruelly overlooked French thriller "Le glaive et la balance" (André Cayatte, 1963), as well as "Psycho" (1960), "The Trial" (Orson Welles, 1962), and "Pretty Poison" (Noel Black, 1968). 7.75 x 11.75 inches.

        "Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids: A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid; Molecular Structure of Deoxypentose Nucleic Acids; Molecular Configuration in Sodium Thymonucleate."St. Albans: Fisher, Knight & Co., 1953.

      First edition, in the rare offprint form, of one of the most important scientific papers of the twentieth century, which "records the discovery of the molecular structure of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), the main component of chromosomes and the material that transfers genetic characteristics in all life forms. Publication of this paper initiated the science of molecular biology. Forty years after Watson and Crick's discovery, so much of the basic understanding of medicine and disease has advanced to the molecular level that their paper may be considered the most significant single contribution to biology and medicine in the twentieth century" (<i>One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine</i>, p. 362). The double helix describing the molecular structure of DNA has not only reshaped biology, it has become a cultural icon, represented in sculpture, visual art, jewellery, and toys. In 1962, Watson, Crick, and Wilkins shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine "for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material."<br/><br/> DNA was first isolated by the Swiss physician Friedrich Miescher in 1869, and over the succeeding years many researchers investigated its structure and function, with some arguing that it may be involved in genetic inheritance. By the early 1950s this had become one of the most important questions in biology. Maurice Wilkins of King's College London and his colleague Rosalind Franklin were both working on DNA, with Franklin producing X-ray diffraction images of its structure. Wilkins also introduced his friend Francis Crick to the subject, and Crick and his partner James Watson began their own investigation at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, focusing on building molecular models. After one failed attempt in which they postulated a triple-helix structure, they were banned by the Cavendish from spending any additional time on the subject. But a year later, after seeing new X-ray diffraction images taken by Franklin (notably the famous 'Photo 51', which is reproduced in the third paper), they resumed their work and soon announced that not only had they discovered the double-helix structure of DNA, but even more importantly, that "the specific pairing we have postulated immediately suggests a possible copying mechanism for the genetic material." <br/><br/> "Although recognized today as one of the seminal scientific papers of the twentieth century, Watson and Crick's original article in <i>Nature</i> was not frequently cited at first. Its true significance became apparent, and its circulation widened, only towards the end of the 1950s, when the structure of DNA they had proposed was shown to provide a mechanism for controlling protein synthesis, and when their conclusions were confirmed in the laboratory by Matthew Meselson, Arthur Kornberg, and others. <br/><br/> "Crick himself immediately understood the significance of his and Watson's discovery.. Three papers in a single offprint from Nature, Vol. 171, No. 4356, April 25, 1953. 8vo (210 x 140 mm), pp. 7 with two diagrams (including the double helix) and two illustrations from photographs. Stapled in self-wrappers as issued. A very fine and fresh copy

        Lolita (Original three-sheet film poster)

      Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1962. Original US three-sheet poster for the 1962 film. An iconic image for an iconic film. Kubrick's rendition of Nabokov's masterpiece is legendary in its own right, a work that stands ten feet above the rhetoric later raised by Nabokov's son and the resulting forgettable 1997 remake. Kubrick's carefully crafted film preserves the mystery, tragedy, and humor of Nabokov's source material, while adding a level of its own perversion--notably with its portrayal of Claire Quilty, represented in a performance by Peter Sellers that according to some sources was mostly improvised. And who could ever best Shelley Winters as Lolita's grasping mother, or James Mason as the long-suffering Humbert? 41 x 81 inches, linen-backed. Near Fine.

        A Clockwork Orange (First UK Edition, inscribed by Burgess to Si Litvinoff, producer of the 1971 film adaptation directed by Stanley Kubrick)

      London: William Heinemann, 1962. First Edition. First Edition. Copy inscribed by Burgess to Si Litvinoff, the single most important catalyst in the transition of Burgess' masterpiece from the literary world to the screen. Litvinoff handled Burgess' little-known attempt at a screenplay adaptation in 1965. After Burgess dropped out, Litvinoff purchased the option for the film rights for $1000, and shepherded filmmaking attempts by several other screenwriters, directors, and actors--including Terry Southern, Nicholas Roeg, and Mick Jagger--until Stanley Kubrick ultimately wrote and directed the now-legendary 1971 film adaptation. With Litvinoff's owner name on the front endpaper, and INSCRIBED to him by Burgess on the title page: "To dear Si / with much affection / John / Anthony." In the wake of Nicholas Roeg's release from directorial duties on "A Clockwork Orange," Litvinoff produced "Walkabout" (1971), then later, "The Man Who Fell to Earth" (1976). In the second issue binding (purple cloth) and second issue jacket (price-clipped, front and rear flaps measuring 8 cm and 10 cm, respectively). Near Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. Some light foxing to the top page edges, else book is quite clean. Title lettering on the jacket is just a touch faded, else only minute rubbing and a couple of tiny closed tears to note.

        FRONTESPIECE - VITRAUX POUR JERUSALEM

      MONTECARLO , 1962Litografia originale a colori impressa su carta vellina. Tavola fuori testo tratto dal volume "Vitraux pour Jerusalem" dedicato all'opera vetraia eseguita a Gerusalemme da Chagall. Famose in tutto il mondo, queste magnifiche vetrate policrome, della misura di metri 4 per 2,8 circa, sono state realizzate dal grande artista ebreo di origine bielorussa Marc Chagall in due anni di lavoro, tra il 1960 e il 1961, ed installate nel 1962 nella sinagoga del centro medico universitario Hadassah di Gerusalemme. Ogni vetrata, dominata da un colore diverso, è un microcosmo del caratteristico e fantastico mondo di Chagall, dove, tra realtà e immaginazione, egli rappresenta il suo profondo senso di identificazione con la storia e la cultura del popolo ebraico e, ispirato dalle sacre scritture, ritrae, tra simboli e fantasiose figure di fiori e animali, i dodici figli di Giacobbe e le dodici tribù di Israele. L'inizio della produzione litografica di Chagall risale al periodo di Berlino (1922 - 1923) ma fu nel 1946, negli Stati Uniti, che Chagall accettò di illustrare "Le mille e una notte": le tredici tavole del volume segnarono i suoi primi passi nella litografia a colori. Di ritorno a Parigi nel 1950, l'artista si recò dallo stampatore Fernand Mourlot, al quale si deve in gran parte il rilancio della litografia nel dopoguerra. Dal 1950 al 1952 Chagall frequentò assiduamente l'atelier di Mourlot dove imparò tutti i segreti del mestiere. Le prove di quel periodo furono stampate in pochi esemplari o distrutte, poiché lo scopo dell'artista non era quello di realizzare opere finite ma di impadronirsi della tecnica. Tra il 1922 e il 1985 Marc Chagall realizzò 1500 litografie. Molte litografie di Chagall furono realizzate con venti / venticinque colori e testimoniano l'enorme lavoro dell'artista: nessuno prima di lui raggiunse una perfezione tale da associare all'ineguagliabile ispirazione la completa padronanza della tecnica. Chagall fece della litografia non un mezzo per moltiplicare le sue opere, ma uno strumento necessario a una creazione che non poteva essere espressa in alcun altro modo. L'artista non realizzò quasi mai bozzetti preliminari per le sue litografie e da ciò derivano l'incanto e la spontaneità creatrice dei suoi lavori. I quattro volumi "Chagall litographe", da cui è tratto il foglio in esame, furono realizzati da Fernand Mourlot e Charles Sorlier (André Sauret editore) tra il 1960 e il 1974. Ogni volume cataloga le litografie realizzate da Chagall in un determinato periodo temporale ed è arricchito da diverse litografie originali inserite nei volumi come tavole fuori testo. Esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione, margini editoriali.

        Golem. Polemik für 9 Vokalsolisten. Partitur.

      O.O.,Vlg.u.J. (ca. 1962). - Folio. IX, 70 S. Halbleinenbd. mit montiertem Deckelschild (Ecken etwas bestossen, VDeckel mit Besitzervermerk und leicht verzogen, Kanten leicht berieben). Partitur, als Typoskript gedruckt. - Hans G. Helms, der heute in Berlin lebt, bietet das eindrucksvolle Beispiel einer Doppelbiografie als Künstler und kritischer Intellektueller. Vom Jazz kommend, hat der frühere Tenorsaxofonist als experimenteller Schriftsteller und Komponist eine allmähliche Entwicklung zum Sozial- und Wirtschaftshistoriker vollzogen. Über Jahre hinweg betreibt er Privatstudien der Sprachwissenschaft, Philosophie und Soziologie bei Roman Jakobson, Theodor W. Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Siegfried Kracauer und Jürgen Kuczynski. Im Kölner Studio für Elektronische Musik führt er Klanganalysen und phonetische Experimente durch und entwickelt in diesem Rahmen enge Verbindungen zu Stockhausen, Boulez, Paik und insbesondere John Cage, für dessen Werk er sich besonders einsetzt. Im Austausch mit György Ligeti, Franco Evangelisti, Wolf Rosenberg und Mauricio Kagel wird Helms schließlich einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der experimentellen Poesie. Sein Werk "Fa:m' Ahniesgwow" (1959) und sprachkritische Kompositionen wie "Golem" haben heute legendären Status. "Der 'Golem' . ist eine Polemik gegen das im Urschlamm sich sielende Philosophieren Martin Heideggers, der einmal die Vernunft zur 'Widersacherin des Denkens' erklärt hat" (Helms). - Die Uraufführung fand 1962 im Sendesaal des Radio Bremen statt. - Aus dem Besitz des Dirigenten Fred Barth, dem Leiter des 1952 von Ellen Widmann gegründeten Kammersprechchors Zürich, mit dessen handschr.

        William Burroughs and Anthony Balch at the Beat Hotel, circa 1962 (Original oversize photograph)

      N.p.: N.p., 1962. Vintage double weight silver gelatin photograph, unpublished, from the photo session that would eventually be utilized for the Burroughs profile and review of "Naked Lunch" that appeared in the November 30, 1962 issue of Time magazine (included here). Shot by noted photographer Nicholas Tikhomiroff, who worked on assignment for the project, with his stamp on the verso. The profile/review, an unflattering piece titled "King of the YADS," eventually inspired Burroughs to utilize the issue in which it appeared in his early and important "cut-up," TIME (1965) for Ted Berrigan's "C" Press. With Burroughs met Balch at the Beat Hotel in 1960, embarking on a collaboration that would last until the end of Balch's life. Balch frequently filmed Burroughs in the midst of mundane activities (buying a parrot in Morocco) to more theatrical ones (Burroughs in character as Dr. Benway). The two also worked on several short films together, including "Tower on Fire" (1963), "The Cut Ups" (1967), and "Bill and Tony" (1972). Balch's experimental style heavily influenced Burroughs' own ideas about cut-ups and Balch is given special thanks by Burroughs in his 1963 novel, "The Ticket That Exploded." Balch followed Burroughs throughout the 1960s, moving with him from Paris to New York and then to London, often even living in the same building. The two remained close throughout the 1970s until Balch's premature death from stomach cancer in 1972. One of the earliest images, if not the earliest, of Burroughs with Balch, and one of only a small handful of photos we've seen of the Beat giant with one of his most important collaborators. 9 x 13.5 inches. Near Fine. Maynard and Miles A11.

        Portrait Photographs of Jane Jacobs

      1962. Photograph Photograph. Near Fine. Six original black-and-white photographs, 9-7/8 by 13-1/4 inches to 11 by 14 inches. In 1961, Jane Jacobs, a journalist for Architectural Forum, published The Death and Life of Great American Cities. While she had no formal training in city planning, she was an acute observer of city life and keenly interested in the neighborhoods of New York City. Death and Life was critical of the then-popular vogue for large-scale redevelopment project; Jabobs described a people and neighborhood centered view of planning. Her observations on how neighborhoods and cities really worked shook the planning profession to the core. Death and Life belongs with Silent Spring and The Feminine Mystique as one of the most influential books of the early 1960s, all written by women without formal training in their fields. By 1962, Jacobs was famous enough to be featured in Horizon magazine, which commissioned noted photographer Ruth Orkin to take Jacobs' picture. These are five images from that photo shoot. Orkin photographed Jacobs in her Greenich Village neighborhood (the sign for Bleeker St. is visible in one photograph), with her son, Ned, and her daughter Burgin. Two images with small creases in one corner, but generally fine or nearly so. Five are signed on the back by Orkin; the unsigned image has a Horizon stamp indicating it was published in the magazine.
