As Tibet's leader-in-exile, he has worked tirelessly not only on behalf of the Tibetan people but as a voice for human rights worldwide.

        Silent Spring

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1962. First edition. Octavo, original green cloth. Signed by Rachel Carson on the half title page. 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).

        [The] Day Mars Invaded Earth (Original screenplay for the 1963 film)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox / API, 1962. First Draft script for the 1963 film. A nuanced "invasion from Mars" film that borrows cleverly from both "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (aliens use human beings as physical hosts) and Val Lewton (threat of a creature, but creature is only implied, not shown). An unusually heavy emphasis on dread, atmosphere, and characterization makes this one of the most overlooked "adult" science fiction films of the 1960s. Black three-ring binder, noted as "DAY MARS INVADED EARTH" on the front wrapper, with a credit for screenwriter Spalding (as "Spaulding"). Title page present, with the title "SPACERAID 63," with a credit for screenwriter Spalding, production No. 6277, dated June 22, 1962. 96 leaves, mimeograph, with blue revision pages throughout, dated 6/28/62. Pages Near Fine, with a few small creases, binder wrapper Near Fine, with a bit of wrinkling to the front title label.

        Claudia Cardinale on the set of "Il Gattopardo" [The Leopard]

      N.p.: N.p., 1962. Original double weight, borderless photograph of Claudia Cardinale on the set of director Luchino Visconti's 1963 film, "Il Gattopardo," taken in 1962 during shooting. With the blue rubber stamp of an Italian press agency, Publifoto, on the verso. In the photograph, Ms. Cardinale studies an Italian version of the script while having her hair done for a scene. Visconti's classic, spacious homage to the quiet death of the Sicilian aristocracy of the mid-nineteenth century, one of the great films of the Italian cinema. Perhaps the apex of Ms. Cardinale's career, and one of a handful of examples of Burt Lancaster's willingness to take on literate, complex roles. Nominated for an Academy Award. In a custom museum-quality frame, archivally mounted, with UV glass. 9.5 x 12 inches. Tiny closed tear at the top edge, else easily Near Fine.

        Zeichen im Sand. Die szenischen Dichtungen der Nelly Sachs [Unterzeichnet / Signiert / Signed] [Signs in the Sand. The Scenic Poetic Impressions of Nelly Sachs; Signed]

      Suhrkamp, 1962, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fine, Dust Jacket Condition: fine, First edition. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, in a Fine dust jacket (light discoloration to the spine panel head, minor edge wear -- Publisher's embossment to the front panel's lower right corner), SIGNED BY NELLY SACHS on the title page; comprised of a Long Poem With Dialogues and a prose appendix, all by Nelly Sachs. Born in Berlin (1891), Nelly Sachs became an unofficial spokeswoman expressing the plight and grief of the Jews. Increasingly frightened by the Nazi's rise, she and her elderly mother fled Germany in 1940, one day before Nelly Sachs was scheduled to report to a concentration camp. Her flight was made possible by her friend and frequent correspondent Selma Lagerlof (herself the winner of the 1909 Nobel Prize in Literature) who persuaded the Swedish Royal family to intervene and arrange her release from Germany. Nelly Sachs won the 1966 Nobel Prize in Literature "for her outstanding lyrical and dramatic writing, which interprets Israel's destiny with touching strength" (sharing the prize with Shmuel Yosef Agnon). In presenting the Prize to Nelly Sachs, Anders Österling, Member of the Swedish Academy, stated "Nelly Sachs's writing is today the most intense artistic expression of the reaction of the Jewish spirit to suffering, and thus it can indeed be said to fulfill the humane purpose underlying Alfred Nobel's will." Of the work herein described, Österling stated: "Identifying herself totally with the faith and ritual mysticism of her people, Miss Sachs has created a world of imagery which does not shun the terrible truth of the extermination camps and the corpse factories, but which, at the same time, rises above all hatred of the persecutors, merely revealing a genuine sorrow at man's debasement. Her purely lyrical production is now collected under the title Fahrtins Staublose, 1961 (Journey to the Beyond), which comprises six interconnected works written during a twenty-year creative period of increasing concentration. There is also a series of dramatic poems, equally remarkable in their way, under the joint title Zeichen im Sand, 1961 (Signs in the Sand), the themes of which might have been taken from the dark treasure house of Hassidic mysticism, but which, here, have taken on new vigour and vital meaning." Signed copies of Nelly Sachs's works are not common to the market and copies of the book herein described are difficult to find. A Fine copy, SIGNED BY NELLY SACHS. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.
