        Lolita: The American Instruction List

      1962. Original wraps. Very Good. The uncommon 1962 American Instruction List for Stanley Kubrick's film "Lolita". Essentially a technical screenplay, the Instruction List breaks down each scene --in fact each piece of dialogue-- by "Title No.", "Characters", "Title Starts At", "Title Ends At" and "Total Footage". This is the complete original screenplay, with notations for the editors and cameramen, and broken down into reels. 212 pgs. all told ("Reel 17, pg. 5"), loosely bound --as issued-- in yellow card covers, which are crudely held together by navy-blue masking tape. Folio, solid and VG, with very light soiling and creasing at the covers. A Kubrick curio --and all the more uncommon (given the usual veil of secrecy surrounding the making of his films) as a pre-publication item.

        Five days after he won the Nobel Prize for Literature, John Steinbeck thanks an Illinois English class for their congratulations, while reflecting on the widespread criticism of the Nobel Committee's decision: "Of course if I should get heady I have only to read Time Magazine to be set back on my heels."

      Sag Harbor, New York, [Oct. 30, 1962]. 5.5" x 3.25". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""John Steinbeck,"" 1 page, on a 5.5"" x 3.25"" postcard, Sag Harbor, New York, [n.d., but postmarked October 30, 1962 to Ms. Pinks' Sophomore English Class thanking them for offering their congratulations on his receiving the 1962 Nobel Prize for Literature. Very fine. ""I can't tell you how happy your wire of congratulations has made me. Of course if I should get heady I have only to read Time Magazine to be set back on my heels. This is painful but healthy. But you have been more than kind to me and I'm grateful. I don't know whether I deserve the award but wires like yours make me glad I got it."" Steinbeck reportedly found out about his winning the Nobel Prize when turning on the television to catch up on the latest developments in the Cuban Missile Crisis. Although at the time he was among only a handful of American authors ever to receive the nod from Stockholm, the news that Steinbeck had one the Nobel Prize for Literature was met with near universal derision from the literary establishment. The article that appeared in Time days after the news broke set the tone, echoing critics, ""who have long since written off John Steinbeck's flawed talent,"" even writing off his 1939 masterpiece, The Grapes of Wrath, dismissed as ""powerful as a tract but limited as fiction, scarcely able to survive its time and place."" The reviewer suspected that the award may have been given in light of one of his last novels, Travels with Charley, ""which manages to recapture the banality, mawkish sentiment and pseudo philosophy that have marked Steinbeck at his worst."" (""Wrapped & Shellacked,"" Time Nov. 2, 1962, Vol. 80, Issue 18). "

First edition, first printing, one of 2000 copies. A terrific look at Bellmer's work as a surrealist photographer.

Bellmer's work was declared "degenerate" by the Nazi Party, forcing him to flee to France, where is work became admired and gathered attention from the likes of André Breton's inner circle.

Los pobres pescadores que salen del Guadalete hacia el mar son los mismos que arribaban a Tarsis en busca de oro y plata y estaño. El mar resume la historia y el mar compendia el sueño. ¿Qué escenario mejor podría soñarse para el encuentro amoroso de Venus y Príapo que el escenario del mar de Cádiz? Uno de los más formidables poemas amorosos de la literatura universal, de ese Diálogo entre Venus y Príapo, acontece en esa bahía: «Amor! La noche se desvae. / Nos baña el mar. (Oh luz! El mundo canta. / Cae la luna. El viento.)» [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Jerusalem Windows.

      - New York: George Braziller / Andre Sauret, 1962. Large 4to, 210 pp. with 104 plates, including 64 in full color and two original color lithographs done expressly for this edition. Original red cloth in unclipped dustjacket. Occasional minor offsetting of color plates as usual, dustjacket shows slightest of wear to edges with no nicks or tears, a near fine copy. A beautifully illustrated chronicle of the creation of twelve stained glass windows, designed by Chagall for the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center Synagogue in Jerusalem. With text and notes by Jean Leymarie, who writes in the introduction: ÒGreat works of art defy limitations of time and place, but sometimes strange combinations are required to produce such art. This is true of the Jerusalem Windows, They seem to belong to the distant past but were actually conceived in our own atomic age. ChagallÕs magic has made this unusual temporal paradox possible, and Zion, where stained glass was unknown, at long last has received the well-deserved mystic raiment for which it was waited since time immemorial.Ó [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Small ding to front wrappers affecting first few pages. Notwithstanding the wear externally, the relevant article internally is bright and clean. Wraps. This issue of The Physical Review contains the article "Symmetries of Baryons and Mesons" by Murray Gell-Mann, found on pages 1067-1084. This paper demonstrates the "introduction of SU(3) single-octet structure of the known mesons and octet-decuplet structure for the baryons [and] predicts the Omega- Hyperon" Aside from a rare privately printed institutional paper (CTSL-20 printed in 1961), the present paper is the earliest obtainable and best work directly related to Gell-Mann's Nobel Prize, awarded for Physics in 1969 "for his contributions and discoveries concerning the classification of elementary particles and their interactions". The original printed wrappers are more difficult to find than the usual bound instititional copies. See Ezhela, et al, pgs 181 and 186-7.

        The Tin Drum

      London: Secker and Warburg, 1962. First British edition of the author's first novel. Octavo. Signed by Gunter Grass on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of shelfwear. A very nice example of this highspot of post-World War II literature. When Günter Grass published "The Tin Drum" in 1959 it was as if German literature had been granted a new beginning after decades of linguistic and moral destruction. Within the pages of this, his first novel, Grass recreated the lost world from which his creativity sprang, Danzig, his home town, as he remembered it from the years of his infancy before the catastrophe of war. Here he comes to grips with the enormous task of reviewing contemporary history by recalling the disavowed and the forgotten: the victims, losers and lies that people wanted to forget because they had once believed in them. At the same time the novel breaks the bounds of realism by having as its protagonist and narrator an infernal intelligence in the body of a three-year-old, a monster who overpowers the fellow human beings he approaches with the help of a toy drum. The unforgettable Oskar Matzerath is an intellectual whose critical approach is childishness, a one-man carnival, dadaism in action in everyday German provincial life just when this small world becomes involved in the insanity of the great world surrounding it. It is not too audacious to assume that "The Tin Drum" will become one of the enduring literary works of the 20th century" (The Swedish Academy).

        Le Déjeuner sur l'Herbe

      Paris: Galerie Louise Leiris,, 1962. Linocut in brown, tan, black and white on Arches paper. Image size 35 x 27 cm. Uneven toning to verso otherwise in excellent condition. Presented in a handmade white goldleaf frame with UV protective glass. A proof aside from the edition of 50. Dedicated and signed lower left by Picasso "Pour mes jeunes mariés, le 3.9.66" ("For my newlyweds"). This linocut is one of a series of Picasso's radical reinterpretations of Manet's famous painting, begun in June 1954 and continued over the next decade. By this late stage, the "Conversationalist" has lost his hair, has clearly aged, and now resembles Picasso himself, in conversation with a Victorine who could be said to resemble his wife, Jacqueline.
