        Linolschnitte [Linocuts]

      Stuttgart: Gerd Hatje, 1962. Oblong folio (13 x 15 1/2 inches). 45 fine color linocuts printed by Galerie Louise Leiris, Paris. Original decorated cloth; publisher's cloth slipcase with mounted color panels. Slipcase rubbed and a bit worn; some pale spotting to sheet edges, but generally a fresh, bright copy. FIRST GERMAN EDITION, THE COMPLETE SERIES OF LINOCUTS. Linocuts form a relatively small part of Picasso's oeuvre as a printmaker, however some of his most outstanding compositions were produced using this method in a short burst of activity between 1958 and 1963. The painstaking process of making them inspired Picasso to invent a solution: rather than use separate blocks for each color, he printed the whole image from just one block in the so-called 'reduction' method. The block was printed in the lightest color, then cut further and printed successively from the lighter to the darker colors. This book was issued in both French and German.

        Something Wicked This Way Comes

      New York: Simon & Schuster. New York, Simon & Schuster, 1962. First Edition. First Impression. A very nice copy. Signed by the author 'Ray Bradbury \ Aug, 30 \ 1986'. One of Bradbury's best and best-known books. His fourth novel (in some regards, his second novel given that The Martian Chronicles and Dandelion Wine are more fix-up in design). The book has had a profound influence on a number of subsequent fantasists and was praised for it's blending of reality with the supernatural. The landscape of speculative fiction owes a great debt to this novel. A highlight of speculative fiction. The book itself is in near fine shape, a couple of brown spots, and a pleasant owner's plate to the front endpaper (Fred T. Rodgers), some scuffing to endpaper, some bumping to the spine tips and edges. The jacket presents very well with trivial rubbing to the spine tips and a 20mm tear that has been neatly taped to the interior (almost invisible). A very presentable copy and much better than usually seen . Cover art by Gray Foy [5878, Hyraxia Books]. . Near Fine. Hardback. 1st Edition. 1962.

        LARGE ARCHIVE OF TELEVISION TYPESCRIPTS, one SIGNED, with extensive corrections and annotations

      1962 - 1963 1962 - Exceptional and important collection of five television typescripts: "The Hollywood Story", "Goodbye Is for the Birds", "North Star", "Don't Blow Bugles (The Mafia Man)", and "Only the Young"; most represented in more than one copy and all written for "The Richard Boone Show" [ Boone was best known for starring in "Have Gun Will Travel"]. Some scripts are clean; other copies have extensive additions and deletions by Odets in ink with one script designated as a Work Copy and SIGNED by him. After completing much of the preliminary work for the series Odets died in August 1963. The latest script is dated 17 June 1963. The show was considered one of the best dramatic programs on the air (Robert Blake was in its repertory) but only survived for two seasons after the loss of its executive story editor. Odets gained fame in the 1930s for two plays: WAITING FOR LEFTY and AWAKE AND SING. Though he wrote other plays, including GOLDEN BOY and THE COUNTRY GIRL, he turned to Hollywood in the 1940s as both a writer and director (NONE BUT THE LONELY HEART, one of Cary Grant's best performances) and was investigated by Congress for Communist ties in the 1950s. He had numerous affairs with such actresses as Frances Farmer and Fay Wray. Odets was the inspiration for the title character in the Coen Brothers film BARTON FINK (1991). Extraordinary collection of early television scripts by one of its best early writers with the many corrections revealing much about the process of creating fine television drama.

        The Spy Who Loved Me.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1962. First edition of the ninth novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series. Octavo, original black cloth. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Jacket design by Richard Chopping. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. In light of the novel's immense presence as a classic thriller, it's amusing to learn that it was at first poorly received. The novel was banned in several countries due to its heightened sexual writing. The reception was so bad that Fleming wrote to Michael Howard of the Jonathan Cape publishing company to explain why he wrote the book: "I had become increasingly surprised to find my thrillers, which were designed for an adult audience, being read in schools, and that young people were making a hero out of James Bond ... So it crossed my mind to write a cautionary tale about Bond, to put the record straight in the minds particularly of younger readers ... the experiment has obviously gone very much awry" (Chancellor 2005). Upon Fleming's request, no reprints were made until after his death in 1964. It was the basis for the tenth film in the James Bond series, starring Roger Moore, Barbara Bach and Curt Jurgens. It was directed by Lewis Gilbert and the screenplay was written by Christopher Wood and Richard Maibaum.

        Art Catalogue-DLM 133-34-BLAUE REITER-KANDINSKY-ROUSSEAU-Derriere le Miroir-1962

      - No. 133-134, Oct.-Nov. 1962: 'Der Blaue Reiter'. Text by P. Volboudt, Will Grohmann et H.H. Stuckenschmidt. This issue contains a reproduction of the original cover for the almanac Blaue Reiter, 1 double page colour lithograph after Marc (la reve, the dream), 1 double page lithograph after Kandinsky, 1 color lithograph after Rousseau and 22 reproductions of drawings by Kandinsky, Schonberg, Klee, Braque, Matisse, Macke, Campendonk, Epstein, Marc, Delaunay, Picasso, Bloch, Munter, David and Wassily Burljuk and Rousseauon on totally 40 pages (including cover). Complete as issued. Published with the sheets unbound and inserted into the fully printed cover. Work includes: colour lithographs and photomechanic reproductions in colour and b/w. Description: &#145;Derriere le Miroir&#146; accompanied each exposition at the Galerie Maeght in Paris France. The first issue appeared in 1946, The last #253 of the collection in 1982. DLM is born out of the passion of Aime and Marguerite Maeght. The first issues were intended by Aime Maeght to be spread among a large public, with original lithographs. 10.000 Copies were printed and distributed through kiosks. This failed completely and the remaining copies were sold by weight to finance the printing of issue 4, which was printed at only 1500 copies and was the catalog for the George Braque exhibition at the Galerie. Jacques Kober and Rene Char wrote the texts. This concept was continued in later issues combining great writers with great artists. In 1947, Adrien Maeght, joined the firm of his parents and assisted his father in the layout and execution.The artists created original lithographs to illustrate DLM. Mourlot did the lithographic printing and the text was printed by Union in issues 4-115. From 116-148, DLM was shot in the studios of Aime Maeght. Since 1960 an edition 'deluxe' was issued, on Arches paper, limited to 150 copies. In 1964, Adrien Maeght created the printing firm ARTE which designed and printed issues 149-232. All included lithographs. Following the death of Marguerite Maeght in 1977, the last numbers were made at the printing firm Lion, with fewer lithographs. Some issues were reprinted. In issue 250, Aime Maeght wanted to pay tribute to all those who had their name associated with DLM. Aime died in 1981 and issue 250 became a tribute to Marguerite and Aime Maeght for thirty five years of friendship with the artists and poets.Artists and Engravers: Artists: WASSILY KANDINSKY (Russian, 1866-1944), FRANZ MARC (German,1880-1916), HENRI ROUSSEAU (French, 1844-1910).

        Si je mourais là-bas.

      Paris Louis Brodeur 1962 - Folio (48 x 38 cm). No 21 of 150 copies on vélin pur chiffon from a total edition of 180 copies. 61 pp. text, 37 woodcuts (2 double page and 7 in text, 30 colour) including duplicate suite of 18 woodcuts each numbered 21/40 (of 50 copies on papier nacré du Japon) and signed by Braque, one extra plate in triplicate. Full black polished calf by P.-L. Martin with abstract geometric design onlaid in brown and cream calf dated 1964 (binder's mark and date), spine lettered in gilt,all edges gilt, suede endpapers, black calf-backed chemise, brown cloth boards, housed in matching slipcase; slight wear to upper edges of spine, very minor scuff to onlaid design. Published in 1962, just a year before Braque passed away, the timely Si je mourais là-bas [If I die over there] was a suite of eighteen wood-engravings to accompany poems from Guillaume Apollinaire's Poèmes à Lou, which Braque himself selected and edited accordingly. Braque had been a close companion of Apollinaire, who died forty years prior to the series but gave a lot of good publicity to Braque and his fellow Cubists. Nevertheless Braque felt that his friend, who was also an art critic, understood nothing about painting, a source of playful tension between the pair which may have contributed to the obscure nature of the suite's images. Pierre-Lucien Martin (1913-85) was one of the most successful French binders of the XX century. He was trained at the École Estiènne in Paris and gained experience in several binderies before emerging as a designer in his own right after the Second World War. His designs are characterised by understated colour, impressive three-dimensional effects, and the intricate but highly logical application of geometry. This volume is a superb example of his work.

        Linolschnitte [Linocuts]

      Stuttgart: Gerd Hatje, 1962. Oblong folio (13 x 15 1/2 inches). 45 fine color linocuts printed by Galerie Louise Leiris, Paris. Original decorated cloth; publisher's cloth slipcase with mounted color panels. Slipcase rubbed and a bit worn; some pale spotting to sheet edges, but generally a fresh, bright copy. FIRST GERMAN EDITION, THE COMPLETE SERIES OF LINOCUTS. Linocuts form a relatively small part of Picasso's oeuvre as a printmaker, however some of his most outstanding compositions were produced using this method in a short burst of activity between 1958 and 1963. The painstaking process of making them inspired Picasso to invent a solution: rather than use separate blocks for each color, he printed the whole image from just one block in the so-called 'reduction' method. The block was printed in the lightest color, then cut further and printed successively from the lighter to the darker colors. This book was issued in both French and German.
