        DIURNES. Decoupages et Photographies De Pablo Picasso. DELUXE EDITION with Linoleum Cut Signed and Numbered By Picasso

      Berggruen, 1962. Folio. From Cramer (#115): "This book is the result of collaboration between Picasso, the photographer Villers and Prevert. Employing a technique he started using in 1943, Picasso made some cut-outs of heads and silhouettes of men, women and animals. Villers mounted the cut-outs on different photographs - 30 in all - thus varying their effect and quality. Finally, Prevert, letting his eyes wander from image, gives a delighful account of his visual promenade. Picasso drew the title and a face for the cover of the presentation box, which contains Prevert's text and the 30 photos-decoupages. The 100 deluxe copies (our copy is the #58) are accompained by a color linocut representing a seated woman (Bloch 1062), signed and numbered by Picasso. In box. Fine condition.. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Illus. by Picasso.

        The Dark Monarch A Portrait From Within.

      London: The Galley Press, Uncorrected Proof Copy, 1962.. "This is a rough and uncorrected proof and should not be regarded as a finished copy in either printing or binding." 204 pp. paper covers, in good condition. With drawings by the author. The author's note says that "The Dark Monarch is psychobiographic, in the widest sense." Berlin, 1911-1999, was a dancer, painter, sculptor, writer and poet, one of the last surviving members of the St Ives School in Cornwall. This was his second novel and its motive was, in some degree, to vent personal anger over the hypocrisy of an over-close competitive art colony. The book was published and 575 copies were sold before its withdrawal from sale after no fewer than four libel actions by members of that colony. Copies were pulped, with probably only around 100 surviving. This is an uncorrected proof copy. It is therefore an interesting survival and has to be considered very scarce.

        Orpheus 1963: A World in Chorus. A 20th Century Literature of Synthesis

      Liberal Press New York: Liberal Press. (1962). First. First edition. Quarto. Printed perfectbound wrappers. A little wear to the wrappers and spine a little tanned, else about fine. Inscribed by the author: "For Professor Howard Nitzberg with best wishes for his Ph.D. dissertation with my compliments. H.M. Barzun. New Rochelle, N.Y. June 1966." Laid in is a two-page mimeographed overview of Orphic Art, based on Barzun's work, but of unknown origin, perhaps written by Nitzberg. Barzun, the father of author and polymath Jacques Barzun, was a poet, and one of a number of French modernists who came to New York City right before and during the first World War, among them Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia and his wife Gabrielle Buffet, Arthur Cravan, Albert Gleizes and his wife Julliette Roche; painters Jean and Yvonne Crotti; and writer Henri-Pierre Roche. They joined painter Joseph Stella, harpist Carlos Salzedo, and others including Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Man Ray, forming a community of modern artists who made New York the new center of the art world. .

        The Reivers. A Reminiscence.

      New York; Random House, 1962. First edition, stated first printing. 20,5x14,5 cm. (5, 1 blank), 305, (1 blank) pp. Publisher's red cloth with red top edge, printed dustjacket. The jacket faded at spine, slightly creased at spine ends and a bit chipped at corners. The corners very slightly bumped. Contents are fine. With two laid-in articles on Faulkner, both frequently underlined. Inscribed on front free endpaper: "To Else and Helen, with love / Bill", and then signed on the title: "William Faulkner / Oxford, Miss. / 2 July 1962". Massey 193. Petersen A37d. The author's last book and the only one to be inscribed to both Else Jonsson and her daughter Helen. This is apparently one of the very last presentation copies from Faulkner, who posted the book on the third of July (cf. Blotner), was confined to bed the next day and taken to hospital on the fifth, where he died just after midnight on the sixth. That William Faulkner would be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950 had been predicted by the Swedish author, journalist and connoisseur of American literature Thorsten Jonsson (1910-1950), who admired Faulkner's works and who acted as his main introducer in Sweden. Jonsson was Dagens Nyheter's USA correspondent from 1943-46 and made his statement while interviewing Faulkner at Rowan Oak in 1946. Unfortunately, Jonsson didn't live to see his prediction come true. At the dinner party given the night before the Nobel Banquet by Faulkner's Swedish publisher, a toast was proposed for Jonsson, as "the man most responsible for our gathering tonight". Among the dinner guests was Else Jonsson, his widow, who had been invited both as a guest of honour and as a fluent speaker of English with a broad knowledge of American customs. She and Faulkner immediately found each other, and they met several times during his stay in Stockholm. Their encounter developed into a life-long passion and friendship, clearly seen in the many letters Faulkner wrote to her, and they managed to spend some time together in Paris, Holmenkollen (Norway) and Stockholm during the years to come. In his first love letter to her, dated the fifteenth of December 1950, he asks himself how he will be able to return to the USA without seeing her again. He also says that being a Noble Prize bloke is nothing compared to spending an afternoon with her. Faulkner's last letter is dated the 14th of December 1960. However, she occupied his mind during the last days of his life, as shown by this presentation copy, which reached her first after the news of his death

Then at Christmas, L'Engle threw a tea party for her mother. One of the guests happened to know John Farrar of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, and insisted that L'Engle should meet with him. Although the publisher did not at the time publish a line of children's books, Farrar met L'Engle, liked the novel and ultimately published it. A Wrinkle In Time is the winner of the NEWBERY AWARD and the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award. This is an exceptionally nice copy, rare with inscription.

        To notesbøger m. orig. håndskrevne noter. Ca. 40 sider lille 8vo.

      Nogle blade daterede 1962. To spiral-notesbøger indeholdende letlæselig håndskrift, en grøn og en hvid, indlagt i nydelig priv. hldr.-kassette af langnarvet brun maroquin m.titel i guld på ryg: "Aksel/ Sandemoses/ notater/ 1962.". Notesbøgerne indeholder, ud over enkelte addresser og aftaler, en indkøbsliste og navnene på flere kendte forfattere, overordentligt interessante optegnelser og noter, Sandemose har benyttet som skitser til sine værker. Flere sider hænger sammen og udgør således nærmest hele fortællinger. (Eks.: "Det er en drøm om deg jeg/ nu fortæller... da sluttet alt i et glimt,/ men der på den ytterste strand/ fikk jeg tenkt at hydrogen-/ bomben var kastet mot/ København... Så hørte jeg/ Stemmen din ved øret,/ din Stemme som glødet nu/ og sa mitt navn... Jeg fikk sagt: Jeg vil med/ deg hjem... Det sluttet som flimringen/ på en fjernsynsskjerm."). Adskillige af optegnelserne har nærmest aforistisk karakter ("Forbitrelsen over/ å være ved siden av, og/ altså et utskudd", "Man/ skal ikke ta på henne med fløyelshandsker, men/ ta dem av.", "Bakom står den/ Onde og hoster så smått".) og afpejler tydeligt Sandemoses personlighed ( "Hvad haver jeg sagt og/ hvad haver jeg gjort, at/ jeg skal så ynkeligen/ omkomme blandt/ slette poeter?" ) og giver ligeledes et sjældent indblik i hans arbejdsprocess.

      Heinemann 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.

        Obervation of High-Energy Neutrino Reactions and the Existence of Two Kinds of Neutrino.

      (New York), American physical Society, 1962. Lex8vo. Volume 9, No. 1, July 1, 1962 of "Physical Review Letters", In the original printed blue wrappers. A very nice and clean copy externally as well as internally, near mint. Pp. 36-44. [Entire issue: (2), 46 pp].. First edition of this seminal paper in which the discovery of the muon neutrino was first announced. The muon neutrino is the second of the three neutrinos and it forms the second generation of leptons. Jack Steinberger, Leon Lederman and Melvin Schwartz were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in the year 1988, "for the neutrino beam method and the demonstration of the doublet structure of the leptons through the discovery of the muon neutrino". In 1934 Enrico Fermi had solved the major problem of beta decay: How do electrons come out of the nucleus if there are non to begin with? Pauli had named his proposed light particle a neutron. James Chadwick had named his much more massive nuclear particle a neutron as well which left the two particles with the same name. Fermi therefore, to solve the confusion, coined the term neutrino (Italian diminutive of neutron). Speculations in the early 1940ies were centered on whether it would be possible to find even smaller parts of an atom. "The experiment used a beam of the AGS's energetic protons to produce a shower of pi mesons, which traveled 70 feet toward a 5,000-ton steel wall made of old battleship plates. On the way, they decayed into muons and neutrinos, but only the latter particles could pass through the wall into a neon-filled detector called a spark chamber. There, the impact of neutrinos on aluminum plates produced muon spark trails that could be detected and photographed -- proving the existence of muon-neutrinos. The experiment's use of the first-ever neutrino beam paved the way for scientists to use these particles in research at the AGS and around the world."(Nobel Prize, Brookhaven National Laboratory) "Following the discovery of a second neutrino associated with the muon - the Muon neutrino - at Brookhaven in 1962 by L. Lederman, M. Schwartz, J. Steinberger, and collaborators, a new neutrino program was started in CERN in 1963. Using a spark chamber set-up and a heavy liquid bubble chamber exposed to the new high quality neutrino beam the discovery was confirmed with high statistics". (Krige, John. History of CERN, 1996, p. 433)

        Kennedy Says the U.S. Must "grasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world."

      Kennedy Says the U.S. Must "grasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world.". In 1962, Kennedy's greatest economic worry was the country's balance-of-payments. The United States was buying more than it was selling - and the international trade deficit of $5 billion dollars weaked the value of the currency, risked inflation, and gave foreign nations the power to claim their debts in gold. (Today it is $763.6 billion. What would JFK think of that!). In order to strengthen the currency and ameliorate these problems, Kennedy needed to boost trade. He wanted the authority to negotiate lower tariffs, and he wanted power, too, to compensate American workers whose jobs would be lost to foreign competition. This was the basis of the Trade Expansion Act, introduced in his January State of the Union Message - and which would eventually see passage nine months later. But in May, the issue was far from settled; here the President stumps for the Act, shoring up support as he praises its benefits. Typed Letter Signed as President, on green White House letterhead, Washington, May 24, 1962. "Thank you for your telegram in support of the trade program which was presented to me at the dinner of the Coordinating Council of Organizations on International Trade Policy last week. I appreciate your interest and that of your State in the enactment of strong new trade legislation which will enable us to grasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world."
