        King Rat (First Edition)

      Little, Brown & Company, Boston 1962 - First Printing. Clavell's first and most collectible work. The book is very good+, with just some slight pushing at the spine ends, very light soiling to the text block edges, a tiny dampstain to the top edge of the text block, and a barely visible erased pencil inscription to the front endpaper. The price-clipped dust jacket - which is protected by a removable Brodart archival cover - is in very good condition. There is some light wear/soiling and a few tiny professionally repaired edge tears, a small professionally repaired 1/2" closed tear near the top of the front panel, and some slight wear/very light chipping at the corners and spine ends. This of course is a very delicate paper wrapper - accounting for its scarcity - and has held up rather well. Overall a very nice collectible copy of Clavell's most difficult to find work. I ship all of my books bubble-wrapped in sturdy, very well-padded boxes, so they are guaranteed to arrive in the exact same condition as when they left. Please feel free to email with any questions/offers/trades and thank you for supporting small independent booksellers everywhere. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Authenticated by Tony Sheets, the artist's son, on the verso. Better image available. Exhibited at: A Tapestry of Life. The World of Millard Sheets.

        Histoire naturelle du hibou

Sept proverbes de Suzanne Allen illustrés de sept sérigraphies de Mortensen signées au crayon. Tirage à 100 exemplaires sur vélin d'Arches tous numérotés. Très bon état. Peintre danois, Richard Mortensen est un des pionniers de l'art abstrait au Danemark. Au début des années trente, un intérêt tout particulier pour les œuvres de Kandinsky et de Miró le porte vers le Bauhaus, le constructivisme et le surréalisme. En 1937, il organise la première exposition d'art moderne au Danemark (qui comprenait des toiles de Kandinsky, Miró, Klee, Ernst, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Mondrian et Tanguy). Cette exposition aura un retentissement énorme. En 1947, il s'installe à Paris et vit avec le sculpteur Jacobsen à la Maison des artistes danois, à Suresnes. L'année suivante, il expose pour la première fois au Salon des Réalités nouvelles, dans les années 50, la galerie Denise-René commence à faire connaître son travail. Sa peinture redevient claire et précise dans la composition et la facture (Routot, 1955). De retour dans son pays natal, il est nommé en 1965 professeur à l'École des beaux-arts de Copenhague. A l’occasion du centième anniversaire de la naissance de l'artiste, le musée d’art de Lemvig vient d'organiser une exposition rétrospective de son œuvre. Romancière et poète, Suzanne Allen sera membre du Groupe surréaliste révolutionnaire et collaboratrice de la "Revue d'esthétique".

Very good or better with three non-color breaking horizontal creases, some light wear at the edges and a couple of tiny oxidation spots. The insert poster for the 1962 cult classic, sci-fi film based on the book by John Wyndham starring Howard Keel and Nicole Murray. A wonderfully creepy image reprinted numerous times over the years. Our research could not locate another original poster (or reprint for that matter) which matches this exact layout with the oversized title box occupying the entire lower portion and with a reference to the original book. Scarce. .
