        Autograph working manuscript in condensed score of the Divagazioni sopra un'Allemanda di John Bull per Orch. [7 variazioni su un'Allemanda di John Bull], signed.

      . 48 pp. Folio (ca. 345 x 244 mm.). Unbound. Notated in both ink and pencil on 16-stave music manuscript paper. Heavily annotated with amendations and corrections throughout and including sketches and sections ultimately cancelled. Several movements dated by the composer at their conclusion, indicating that the work was written over a period of time extending from September (or earlier in 1962) to December of 1962 in Rome. Housed in a card folder with a presentation inscription from the composer's daughter Vittoria. With movements listed, together with performance times, to title as follows: "Tema - Allemanda del Duca di Brunswick (1:15), Balletto (.60), Passacaglia (2.42), Corrente (1.48), Siciliana (2.25), Gaglilarda (2.55), Sarabanda (3.50), Fanfara e Corale (5)." The order of the movements has been revised, both on the title and within the manuscript.. An Italian composer, conductor and critic, Guerrini studied with both Torchi and Busoni at the Bologna Liceo Musicale, going on to direct the Florence Conservatory (1928-47), the Bologna Conservatory (1947-9), and the Conservatorio di S Cecilia (1950-60). "His earlier music combines high seriousness, at times somewhat academic, with luxuriant chromatic harmony reminiscent of Bax or, more significantly, Alfano. The textures and orchestration sometimes suggest Strauss, as does Guerrini's interest, around 1920, in the symphonic poem; and there are indications, too, of Ravel's influence... The most substantial and imaginative of his early works is his second published work in the genre, L'ultimo viaggio d'Odisseo, which shows his harmony and orchestration at their most evocative. Also notable, in this early period, are the chamber compositions: the Violin Sonata is typical, combining succulent chromaticism with reiterative thematic developments. In time Guerrini's academicism grew more pronounced, while his tendency to romantic indulgence was tempered by a new, architectonic sobriety. His best work after 1930 is in religious music: the gravely expressive Missa pro defunctis, though conservative, is free from the tiredness that mars much of Guerrini's later output. On a different line of development, the Sette variazioni sopra una sarabanda di Corelli may, in their ingenious rethinking of material from the remoter past, reflect the influence of his teacher Busoni."

      National Excelsior Publication, Hollywood 1962 - First edition, one of 400 copies. Original white wrappers, printed in red. In near fine condition. Signed twice by Ed Ruscha, inscribed once and signed again by the author. Ed Ruscha's first book, a seminal "bookwork", one of the most influential conceptual art works, it served as a kind of tonic, liberating the artists' book from many of its traditional emphases. "The first book came out of a play with words. The title came before I even thought about the pictures. I like the word 'gasoline' and I like the specific quality of 'twenty-six.' If you look at the book you will see how well the typography works - I worked on all that before I took the photographs. Above all, the photographs I use are not 'arty' in any sense of the word. . . . One of the purposes of my book has to do with making a mass-produced object. The final product has a very commercial, professional feel to it . . . . I have eliminated all text from my books — I want absolutely neutral material. My pictures are not that interesting, nor the subject matter . . . my book is more like a collection of 'ready- 56 item 241 mades'.

Albee described his first three-act play as the depiction of the desire to "try to claw our way into compassion" (Hart 9). The Village Voice calls Albee's play "[a]n irreplaceable experience…a crucial event in the birth of contemporary American theater!" Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? went on to win the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play and the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play.

        Five Girls

      New York: Crown, 1962.. New York: Crown, 1962. First edition. Large quarto, original red cloth. Signed by Sam Haskins on the front endpaper. Light rubbing to the bottom, else fine in a fine dust jacket with just a modicum of rubbing. Also laid into this volume is a signed photograph printed by Haskins. The photographers first book, beautifully reproduced in gravure. In his foreword to this work Haskins wrote, "Five Girls represents many things to me. A serious project that served as a clearing house for graphic ideas which were floating around in the back of my mind. A fun project which was a relief from highly disciplined advertising illustration. An opportunity to control the full cycle of an undertaking, from the first conception of the idea and choice of approach, through the photographic processes and selection of pictures, to the final detailed layout and design. I do not like to dream up explanations for my work. That is why this book is, quite simply, me thinking pictures." A sharp copy, uncommon signed. Cowboy Kate's publication by Crown in 1965 contributed to Sam Haskins international reputation for signature photographic passions. It was one of the first 20th century artistic pieces to creatively use black-and-white photographic grain as a medium for expression and image design. After selling a million copies worldwide, Haskins won the Prix Nadar in France in 1964, and his book continues to influence artists of photography, film, and fashion nearly five decades after its publication. Cowboy Kate was the beginning of Haskins' success, and his other awards include the International Art Book Competition, Israel in 1969, the One Show Gold Medal, NY in 1974, and the Kodak book of the Year in 1980.

The edge of the text block has some foxing and is age toned. The pages to the book have browned universally. Mr Francis has flat signed the front title page in his usual bold and slightly slanted style. The unclipped dust jacket is the first state and shows the correct price of 15/-. It is complete with little if any edge wear. It too has yellowed and the publishers name has faded from the spine – as is usually the case with this particular book. There are no repairs or touch ups and the dust jacket is now protected by an acid free archival sleeve. A desperately difficult book to find flat signed in first edition. Auctions and websites are littered with copies which have book-plates, tipped in signatures and dedications. This is an honest to goodness flat signed copy of one of the most difficult modern first editions to find in very good, collectible condition. The images you see are high resolution scans of the actual item. Please request further scans if you wish. We will be happy to oblige. The book will be dispatched via the Royal Mail in protective packaging. We do not charge postage to buyers within the UK. Those from outside the UK are asked to contact us before purchasing. We offer a 7 day no quibble full refund if the item is not as described and shown. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        DEATHS FOR THE LADIES: And Other Disasters

      New York: Putnam Sons, (1962).. New York:: Putnam Sons. (1962). First edition, paperwraps issue, of this "run of poems, short poems, very short poems, and turns of prose." From the collection of Adeline Lubell-Naiman. INSCRIBED with an elaborate drawing "The critic pursued by a theme [large scribbled drawing spanning inside front cover and first leaf] Love / (that is to say lustility [sic] and housefection [sic] to Lucky and Adeline) / Norman." This paperwraps issue came out at the same time as the small hardback printing. Very good. Adeline Lubell-Naiman was the editor instrumental in the eventual publication of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD. In 1946, while an editor at Little, Brown, Lubell-Naiman convinced Mailer to submit the first 200 pages of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD, which she talked up to her publisher. Unfortunately, she was also the one to suggest historian and critic Bernard DeVoto read the manuscript--he recommended not publishing. But Mailer submitted it to Rinehart, who published the book in 1948. Over the years, Lubell-Naiman remained close friends with Mailer and his wives. In the summer of 1968 she even played the role of "Adeline McCarthy," a president of a women's college in Mailer's film "Maidstone" (Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center website).
