      (Philadelphia): (Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros.). [1962]. Color lithographic poster, measuring approximately 42" x 36." A large broadside advertisement for the Clyde Beatty-Cole Brothers Circus, featuring the face of a clown in red, blue, yellow and orange (printed by the Majestic Poster Press in Los Angeles). With the specific date and location for this 11-day run in Philadelphia (Sun. May 20 thru Wed. May 30), also printed lithographically on a separate sheet of paper, neatly attached along the bottom margin. Clyde Beatty, a famous lion tamer, film actor, and radio host since the early 1930s, was a tireless circus impresario. A rare survivor of one of Beatty's signature roadside posters for his celebrated circus, dating from the period of his partnership with the Cole brothers. A vibrant, clean copy with no fading, gently folded, thus near fine with minimal creasing and a few small tears. .

        The Spy Who Loved Me

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1962. Octavo. Original dark grey boards, spine lettered in silver, dagger design to front board in silver and blind, red endpapers. With the dust jacket. Ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Some foxing to endpapers; an excellent copy in the jacket that has a very little foxing to rear panel. First edition, first impression. The tenth James Bond book. In many ways this is one of the most ambitious of Fleming's Bond books. It purports to be the first hand testimony of a 23 year old Canadian woman with whom Bond has an ill-fated affair. In time-honoured literary tradition Fleming claims to have been sent Michel's manuscript account of which he is merely the editor. Michel therefore gets a spurious credit as co-author on the title page. This novel is the only Bond book to be written in the first person.

        One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

      New York: Viking Press. (1962). First. First edition. Rear hinge restored, multiple drink rings and stains on the boards, a few small stains in text, a poor copy with jacket flaps glued into the rear blanks, otherwise lacking the dustwrapper (with a later supplied homemade brown paper jacket). An interesting albeit conditionally grubbing copy, with a bookplate on front pastedown presenting the book to a Los Angeles-area library from Dorothy Parker. Parker returned to Los Angeles in 1961 to reconcile with her estranged husband Alan Campbell (who committed suicide in 1963). Presumably Parker found Kesey's first book serviceable as a drink's coaster. Something of a generational keystone, this novel was the basis for the 1975 film that was the first to win all five major Oscars since It Happened One Night in 1934. .

        Silent Spring

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1962. First edition. Octavo, original green cloth. Signed by Rachel Carson on the half title page. Near fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with some rubbing to the spine. 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).

        Presage Paris Fashion Forecast, Issue No. 1 from March 1962 together with Presage Paris Choisit No. 2 - Juin 1962

      Paris: Société d'Éditions de Mode, 1962. Issue 1: Signatures show occasional slight discoloration and warps created by fabric samples, very slight edgewear, otherwise near fine. Two signatures possibly absent (pages 32-34 and 119-122), although these items were acquired as part of the publisher's archive. Signatures laid into a folding chemise and housed in a matching slip case, partially split at the seam and frayed at the edges with some slight discoloration. Issue 2: signatures show occasional discoloration and warps created by fabric samples, else near fine and complete in a lettered fabric overlaid clamshell box with small splits at seams and light soiling to bottom.. First Edition. The presumed first two issues of Presage, a leading subscription quarterly in haute couture from 1961 to 1987. Loose signatures and photographs in the publisher's folding chemises, cloth slipcases (issue 1) and dropback cloth box (issue 2). Issue 1: Number 114 of an estimated 300 copies. Presage was designed as a working object, deploying photography, fabric samples and illustration to create visual and tactile clues in fashion trends such as color, material and silhouette. Techniques borrowed from artist books created experimental interactions between photography and textile: a die cut page overlaid with translucent fabric partially reveals a model's picture, allowing the material to dress the photograph. Though intended as a practical predictive object, Presage predates the deluxe subscription based book art experiments of publications such as Aspen and Visionaire, and incorporates photographic techniques later employed by Sam Haskins, Attali, etc. The premier issue is comprised of three unbound parts: "Spring-Summer 1962," "Winter 1962-1963," and "Summer 1963," each of which include sections titled "Colour Folder," "Woollens," "Silks," "Flashes," "Lace," "Cottons," "The Rayon Staples," and "Fashion Headlines." Features 85 color swatches, 65 woolen fabric swatches, 81 silk fabric swatches, 8 lace fabric swatches, 13 cotton fabric swatches, 6 other fabric swatches, 3 loose vintage black and white photographs, 9 tipped-in silver gelatin prints and 3 tipped-in color photographs. -- Issue 2: Number 22 of an estimated 300 subscription copies. The second issue of Presage continues with expanded photographic illustrations. The tactile fabric swatches, mounted aside or even occasionally over the photographic and drawn illustrations, invite the book's user to imagine specific and abstract ideas of material and color. The photographs do not picture specific clothing, but rather themes and concepts in fashion, further expanded upon with fabric samples in a unique marriage of the photographic and the tactile. Photographers credited in this issue include Roland De Vassal, frequent cover photographer to L'Officiel, and Fouli Elia; and Marc Hispard, both contributors to Elle during during Peter Knapp's tenure as creative director. This issue comprises three unbound parts: "Premiere Partie - D'Aujourd'hui á Demain...,"Ëš"Deuxiéme Partie - Hiver 1963,"Ëšand "Troisieme Partie - Printemps été 1963," containing a total of 224 fabric swatches, 1 loose original color photograph, 3 tipped in original color photographs, 31 photo illustrations, 28 color threads, and 5 fashion design prints.
