        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…".

        THE HAND OF THE ENEMY

      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.

        THE POINTS OF MY COMPASS

      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.

        The Tin Drum

      New York: Pantheon, 1962. First American edition of the author&#39;s first novel. Octavo, original red cloth. Signed by the author. Slip laid in from the publisher, "with our compliments", most likely a review copy. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with just a touch of wear to the extremities. A very sharp copy. When Günter Grass published "The Tin Drum" in 1959 it was as if German literature had been granted a new beginning after decades of linguistic and moral destruction. Within the pages of this, his first novel, Grass recreated the lost world from which his creativity sprang, Danzig, his home town, as he remembered it from the years of his infancy before the catastrophe of war. Here he comes to grips with the enormous task of reviewing contemporary history by recalling the disavowed and the forgotten: the victims, losers and lies that people wanted to forget because they had once believed in them. At the same time the novel breaks the bounds of realism by having as its protagonist and narrator an infernal intelligence in the body of a three-year-old, a monster who overpowers the fellow human beings he approaches with the help of a toy drum. The unforgettable Oskar Matzerath is an intellectual whose critical approach is childishness, a one-man carnival, dadaism in action in everyday German provincial life just when this small world becomes involved in the insanity of the great world surrounding it. It is not too audacious to assume that "The Tin Drum" will become one of the enduring literary works of the 20th century" (The Swedish Academy).
