      Zurich: Coron-Verlag, 1962. First edition. Hardcover. Fine. A Fine, Superior, copy of the first edition, first printing, SIGNED BY FRANS EEMIL SILLANPAA on the page facing his Portrait [Text in German]; a commemorative book published to honor Sillanpaa's having won the 1939 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his deep understanding of his country's peasantry and the exquisite art with which he has portrayed their way of life and their relationship with Nature." [The true first edition of this book, offered here, should not be confused with the later revised edition (1970), or with later printings of such revised edition, which are rather easily found.] The book contains a section on Sillanpaa's Life and Works written by Dr. Olof Enckell, then Chairman of the Literature Department at Helsinki University, as well as Sillanpaa's acceptance speech, praise of him by the Nobel committee, excerpts from 2 of his most well beloved novels and more.

Although the book was not called to be signed, this copy was nevertheless signed by Sillanpaa, making it a rare copy indeed. As Sillanpaa died in 1964, this book may well have been one of the last books he signed. This copy of the book came from the Estate of renowned dancer and choreographer Martha Graham. A beautiful, Fine, Superior, copy of an exceedingly scarce book with a notable Provenance, SIGNED BY FRANS EEMIL SILLANPAA. Quite Beautiful and RARE INDEED.

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

      1962 - 1963. Manuscript. Very Good to Near Fine. 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 Sin Or Evils Of Integration RACIST SEGREGATION CIVIL RIGHTS JIM CROW Interest

      New York: Carlton Press, 1962. 1st Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. (Religion) (Civil Rights) DAILEY, Reverend Louis E. The Sin Or Evils Of Integration. Undisguised attack upon the current movement to integrate the schools and public facilities of the United States. Echoing the account of Creation in Genesis 1:21-31 and the Covenant with Noah in chapter nine, Rev. Dailey identifies as God's First Commandment the injunction to creation 'To multiply and replenish the earth after his kind,' and blisteringly attacks the integrationists who would violate this commandment by unlimited mixing of the races. Although there is danger, says the author, in classroom, bus, and lunch-counter integration, the greatest fear is that future generations will weaken the racial strains of both white and Negro through intermarriage. Racial pride, says Rev. Dailey, often attacked as bigotry, is really a form of racial 'patriotism' which should be cultivated by all men, regardless of race. 'Those who have race pride think the race of which they are members has, on the whole, gifts and traits superior to those of other races. They have a passionate desire to keep the bloodstream of their race pure and free from contamination by other races.' Book is representative of the views of many Americans as well as the view of religion in certain areas of the country. Hardcover with dust jacket. First Edition/Printing. Duodecimo. Very Good/Very Good. Jacket shows rubbing with some fading and chipping. Toning. PO note inside front board. $2000.00

      London: Heinemann. (1962). The uncorrected proof copy of the first British edition of his third novel. Signed by the author. Matthiessen is one of the very few authors who has won the National Book Award for both fiction and nonfiction. Of his early novels, Matthiessen has said that he is not happy with them, and would just as soon they not be reprinted or read, although he hasn't gone so far as to prevent his publisher from bringing them back into print. His novel after this one, At Play in the Fields of the Lord, a National Book Award nominee, represented a significant jump from this book in terms of literary accomplishment. The book prior to this, Wildlife in America, started him on the path toward becoming one of our most highly regarded writers of natural history. This short novel, a tale of the sea that is reminiscent of Conrad, dates from an early period in Matthiessen's career and is uncommon even in the U.S. trade edition. This is the only copy of the British proof we have handled. Spine-sunned, else fine in wrappers. . First Edition. Softcover.

        Collection of 79 Installments of Presage

      Liechtenstein / Paris / Switzerland: Egaserp Établissements / Société d'Éditions de Mode / Studio Galfetti - Fontana, 1962-1978. Installments range in condition from fine to very good, bound in boards and wrappers.. First Editions. Quartos.& Collection of 79 installments of Presage, published between 1962 and 1978. A leading quarterly in haute couture from 1961 through 1987, Presage seamlessly combined art, fashion, and design in colorful issues on current trends, providing an alternative to the stark commercial fabric catalogues of the day. Created in Paris and marketed to an American audience, each issue sought to predict the upcoming seasons' styles through a selection of fabric swatches, photo illustrations, patterns, and fashion design sketches for men, women, and children. The staggering subscription fee of $750 abetted the journal's lavish production, which incorporated unusual materials such as foil, lace, styrofoam, and cloth, among other media, into its variously sparse, Pop, and postmodern designs. Under the leadership of designer Rosita Fanto, who directed the journal after its third issue, Presage also acted as a working tool for members of the specialized fashion industries; the typical volume was divided into six sections, each devoted to a distinct facet of the business and published under the titles Les Coloris (Color), Les Lainages (Wool), Les Tissés (Woven), Jersey Façonnes Dentelles (Jersey Brocade Lace), Les Imprimés (Print), and Sketch Future (Future Sketch). A noteworthy experiment in graphic design and book arts and important document of the evolution of late twentieth century fashion, the quarterly belongs to several museum and library collections, including the Yale University Library, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Centre Pompidou. Due to the extensive volumes created during the journal's 26 years of publication, complete sets are exceedingly rare.

        The New Jazz Book. A History and Guide

      New York: Hill and Wang,, 1962. Translated by Dan Morgenstern. Octavo. Original light grey cloth, titles to spine in purple. With the dust jacket. 32 pages of plates from photographs. Spine rolled, a few tiny spots to cloth. An excellent copy in the price-clipped jacket with a few small chips and short closed tears. First English language edition, first printing, originally published in Germany in 1959. Presentation copy inscribed by the translator on the front pastedown, "To a good guy, Dan, 1963" and by jazz pianist Teddy Wilson on the front free endpaper, "To Harvey with best wishes, Teddy Wilson". Wilson (1912–1986) was "the definitive swing pianist" (Songwriters Hall of Fame biography) who played with many of the greats, including Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Benny Goodman. He was one of the first black musicians to play with whites and later taught at Julliard. Wilson is mentioned numerous times in this volume, for instance, on page 182 Berendt writes that, "In the field of the real Swing style of the thirties the Earl Hines direction is embodied first of all in Teddy Wilson. He connects it with the format of the great coloured Swing soloists and with the elegance and affability which Benny Goodman brought to the jazz of that day. It is this connection which has led to a point – twenty-five years later – at which one seems to be hearing Teddy Wilson in every other cocktail pianist. Teddy Wilson, as a member of the Goodman combos and as leader of his own ensembles, participated in some of the best and most representative combo recordings of the Swing era. During the thirties he influenced almost every pianists…".

      Manila, Philippines: Regal Books/Erewhon Bookshop Distributors, 1962. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Manila, Philippines: Regal Books/Erewhon Bookshop Distributors, 1962. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 120 pages. The author&#39;s debut novel. One of the greatest novels of the 20th century. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now very rare. Presents Kerima Polotan&#39;s first and only novel. It is important to keep in mind that at the time of its publication, the Philippines was one of the most prosperous nations in Asia, a vibrant democracy that enjoyed unprecedented economic growth, American financial largesse to its former colony and Workl War II ally, and an elite culture that encouraged Philippine writing in English. The external factors that help make a masterpiece possible cannot be overestimated precisely because the latter comes into being to challenge a modernizing nation&#39;s intrinsic soul. Once compared to Sartre (wrongly) and Heinrich Boll (rightly), Polotan is an original: Going against the Romantic grain, she wrote un-sentimentally, scathingly, and pitilessly about love, the impossible demands it makes on human beings, and its fundamental incompatibility not just with personal ambition but with the harsh realities of life. For Polotan, love is the sole reason for being. It&#39;s what we&#39;re here for. Its enemy, whose hand prevails in the end, is life itself. By all means, one should seize whatever saving grace life has to offer, be it the glory of literature; the pleasures of art; the consolation of religious faith; and most tangible of all, measurable, worldly success. Life is essentially a trade-off, and one must never ever have any illusions about the trade-offs one makes. Polotan saves her most withering words (in passages of great descriptive power) for those who think they can have it all. The bleakness of Polotan&#39;s vision is somewhat relieved by the generosity of her spirit. She cares about her characters, mourning rather than condemning their failings. Whereas almost everyone else writes in the "Creole" style (the flowery Philippine language infused with Spanish Baroque), her lean and elegant prose makes Polotan the greatest stylist in English the Philippines has ever produced. "Her searingly honest voice is without parallel. Like a diamond: Sharp, brilliant, cutting through the dross of hypocrisy. Tough exterior, generous heart" (Rowena Torrevillas). Polotan&#39;s tough-minded yet generous writing exposes the mediocrity of contemporary writing for what it is: Sterile prose, undergraduate philosophizing, Marvel Comics fantasy-narratives. "A man follows something more urgent than himself" (Kerima Polotan). Kerima Polotan died on August 19, 2011. She will not be replaced. An absolute "must-have" title for Kerima Polotan collectors. <b><i> This title is a modern classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First Edition/first Printing available online and despite its imperfection (closed and open tears on DJ; slight fading on DJ spine) is still in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Copies that occasionally turn up online have sold for $1000. A rare copy thus. </b></i> The greatest Philippine writer of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy.

      New York Harper & Row 1962 - First edition. Original black quarter cloth over grey boards with gilt title to the spine in (supplied) dustwrapper. Author's presentation copy, inscribed to friend and fellow author, Elizabeth Taylor, on the front end paper, "Elizabeth love and a Merry Christmas Katherine and Andy / North Blooklin, Maine". A very good copy, with a faded spine which has a couple of internal repaired closed tears to the joints and a little wear to the spine ends. In a very good dustwrapper. Elizabeth Taylor, the critically regarded British novelist, described by Kingsley Amis as "One of the best English novelists born this century", whose writing career was forced into relative obscurity as a consequence of coinciding with the rise of her more famous namesake, the American actress. Her style was in the mould of Ivy Compton-Burnett, Barbara Pym and Elizabeth Bowen, and has only recently been recognised as one of the important authors of the twentieth century. She wrote twelve novels and a clutch of story collections, most of which were originally published in, The New Yorker, where E.B.White's wife was her first editor. Taylor rarely travelled to American so did not often meet White but they became good friends via a long and frequent correspondence. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        American Folk Blues Festival, Original, Vintage, 1962 German Concert Poster By Gunther Kieser

      American Folk Blues Festival Concert Poster, Auditorium Max,[Hamburg], Oct. 18,[1962], produced by Lippmann & Rau; designed by Gunther Kieser with the Michel + Kieser imprint to bottom centre right, inside the guitar margin. A1 Format, 23.25" by 33" (59 cm. by 83.8 cm.), in fine condition, bright, unmarked, with crisp factory folds. The American Folk Blues Festival was the brainchild of German concert promoters, Horst Lippmann and Fritz Rau, who had been successfully presenting jazz concerts in Germany since the mid - 1950&#39;s. The first AFBF was held in 1962, for which this poster was designed, and working with the well-connected Chicago bluesman, composer and bassist Willie Dixon, L&R were able to present a who&#39;s who of American urban and country blues artists for the first time to European audiences. Exposure to these great American blues musicians inspired and influenced a generation of British musicians, including future rock stars Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, all of whom played an important role in the blue-based British Invasion of the 1960&#39;s. AFBF continued until 1972 with a series of highly successful concerts in Germany, France and England, after which the festivals were terminated for an eight year hiatus before resuming in 1980 for another five years. The posters created exclusively for the German AFBF festivals were designed by the eminent graphic designer Gunther Kieser and are representative of some of his finest music poster designs. A significant blues poster for the first presentation of the influential American Folk Blues Festival, in collector&#39;s condition. J1750 . First Edition. Fine.
