        Saint Francis.

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1962. First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Translated from the Greek by Peter A. Bien. Signed by the translator on the front free endpaper, "To John "Who knows, perhaps God is simply the search for God." Peter Bien." Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. The protean Greek author Nikos Kazantzakis retells the story of the most beloved of saints--Francis of Assisi, who permanently changed the way people think about following God. Drawing on the traditional stories of the saint's life, Kazantzakis infuses the tale with a fervent vision that is uniquely his own, highlighting the saint's heroic single-mindedness in the face of extreme physical and spiritual suffering. He portrays the saint as a great lover and inspiring leader who embraced radical poverty in the face of many obstacles and temptations while achieving a way of life marked by epic generosity. "The novel is strong, deep, and moving. . . . a penetration into the mystery and wonder of life" (San Francisco Chronicle).

        The Spy Who Loved Me.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1962. First edition of the tenth novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series. Octavo, original black cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Peter To Cheer him up! From Ian." Fine in a fine dust jacket. Dust jacket art by Richard Chopping. Housed in a full morocco clamshell box, the front panel mimicking the dust jacket. Rare and desirable signed and inscribed by Ian Fleming. 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.

His pictures are known for their combination of “decorative elegance with a fascination with the perverse, sinister and satanic” (Peppin & Micklethwait). Caresse and Harry CrosbyÂ’s Black Sun Press “is one of those happy combinations of husband and wife working together, which always lend added charm to a private press and they make a point of providing interesting illustrations” (Ransom, 178).

Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket. $2500.First edition, warmly inscribed on the half title to neighbor and longtime friend Miranda Levy, ""To my dear Miranda, with love and kisses from I Stravinsky, Nov /63.""""Few 20th-century composers enjoyed international influence and importance equal to that of Stravinsky. This influence exists in the materials of his music and in his rigorous search for an individual soundÂ… For many years he was, with Schoenberg, one of the two unofficial poles of Western music"" (ANB). In these conversations with his protégé, conductor Robert Craft (who coauthored seven books with him), Stravinsky discusses his childhood in St. Petersburg, Russia; recalls such musical luminaries as Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov; reflects on the intersection of music and modern recording technology; and discusses scores including The Firebird, The Rite of Spring and his then-new work, The Flood. Illustrated with eight pages of black-and-white photographs. Inscribed to Miranda Levy, a founding member of the Santa Fe Opera and wife of pioneering television director Ralph Levy (whose credits include directing the original I Love Lucy pilot episode). Miranda ""met Stravinsky at the Aspen, Colorado Music Festival in 1950, then hosted him on a New Mexico visitÂ… [When] the composer let it be known he was interested in D.H. LawrenceÂ… [Miranda] introduced Stravinsky to LawrenceÂ’s widowÂ… [Miranda and Ralph Levy] moved to Los Angeles and bought a house less than a block from Stravinsky'sÂ… Just as she had once kept Santa Feans up to date on the latest news and gossip, she now regaled Igor and Vera Stravinsky with daily updates on movie studio gossip"" (Albquerque Journal).Dust jacket with light rubbing to spine ends and edges. A very nearly fine inscribed presentation/association copy.

        Four typed and signed notes and letters.

      N. p., July-September 1962. - Four letters with their envelopes. 4to and oblong 8vo. Altogether 6 pp. on 6 ff. All addressed to the Russian journalist and poet Igor Mikhailusenko (b. 1932) concerning Russia and the cold war: "[.] I believe that the two German States are equally dangerous. Western Germany is fanatically obsessed with the cold war and Eastern Germany is a cruel, vicious tyranny, capable of keeping its population within its borders only with barbed wire and machine guns. I think that the Government of the Soviet Union and the Government of the United States have a responsibility to come to an agreement which reflects the interests of peace and not the interests of either German State. I think that the problem of West Berlin could be solved in several ways. One would be for a united Berlin to become the seat of the United Nations, another would be for West and East Berlin to become a neutral city under the jurisdiction of the United Nations, and another would be for Berlin to become autonomous, protected through agreement by both East and West [.]" (from the letter of September 5, 1962). - Together with a flyer for Russell's Committee of 100 mass sit-down, originally scheduled for September 9, 1962, but canceled for lack of support. - Generally good, sizes vary.

      1962. First Edition . COCTEAU, Jean. Le Requiem. (Paris): Gallimard, (1962). Small quarto, original printed paper wrappers, glassine, uncut and unopened. $3000.First trade edition of this collection of poems, CocteauÂ’s final book, published just a year before his death. This copy warmly inscribed at length by Cocteau and signed by him with his characteristic star flourish to his good friend Maurice Goudeket, who was married to CocteauÂ’s dear friend Colette until her death in 1954.Above the half title, Cocteau has penned the name “Maurice Goudeket.” Below he writes, “Mes amis très cheres, jÂ’ai à peine envoyer ce fleuve des morts dans lÂ’autre bonheur. Avec tendresse, Jean.” In 1920, following publication of her succès de scandale, the novel Chéri, Colette entered the world of modern poetry and painting revolving around Jean Cocteau, who was later her neighbor in Jardins du Palais-Royal. They became great friends, and over the years, both often referred to each other, directly and indirectly, in their books. In 1935, Colette married Maurice Goudeket, whom she described as a “saint,” and who cared for her during her later years. She died in 1954.Goudeket remarried after ColetteÂ’s death. His second wife, the actress (and widow of couturier Lucien Lelong) Sanda Dancovici, bore Goudeket a child when he was 71 years old, about two years before the publication of Le Requiem. Perhaps this is the “bonheur” referenced by Cocteau in his inscription. Cocteau wrote the poems contained in Le Requiem while convalescing from a severe hemorrhage. “Cette perte de sang,” he writes in the Preface, “mÂ’en lassait juste assez pour vivre et pour faire la planche sur le fleuve des morts.” The entire book deals with his hallucinatory near-death experience and his drawn-out recovery, which perhaps also contributes to the somewhat apologetic tone of his inscription. Issued at the same time as 125 numbered copies printed on hand-made paper. Text in French. Small perforated stamp “SP” to margin of final signature and rear free endpaper.Very nearly fine condition, entirely uncut and unopened, warmly inscribed by Cocteau to his close friend.

Octavo, original black cloth with gray spine, pictorial endpapers, original dust jacket. $2200.Book club edition of this comprehensive and engaging first-hand account of the genesis of America’s manned space program, inscribed by Wally Schirra on the front free endpaper (“To Bruce, Wally Schirra”) and signed by Chris Kraft, NASA’s first manned spaceflight director.“The first seven American astronauts were an admirable group of individuals chosen to sit at the apex of a pyramid of human effort… In volunteering to entrust their lives to Mercury’s spirit and Atlas’ strength to blaze a trail for man into the empyrean, they chose to lead by following the opportunity that chance, circumstance, technology and history had prepared for them” (Swenson, Grimwood & Alexander, 164-65).

        Spy Who Loved Me

      1962. First Edition . FLEMING, Ian. The Spy Who Loved Me. London: Jonathan Cape, (1962). Octavo, original brown paper boards with silver-gilt, red endpapers, original dust jacket. $3000.First edition of Fleming’s tenth Bond thriller—the author’s unusual examination of his super-spy “from the other end of the gun barrel.”""A significant departure from usual,"" The Spy Who Loved Me, in which 007 appears only toward the end of the book, proved to be ""the easiest thing [Fleming] had ever done"" (Lycett, 381). As he had while composing From Russia, With Love (1957) and Thunderball (1961), the author again toyed with the idea of killing off his phenomenally popular super spy. Although the title page lists the book as being written by Ian Fleming with Vivienne Michel, the ""coauthorship credit is a hoax: Vivienne Michel was the name of the wife of one of Fleming's golfing companions in Jamaica"" (Biondi & Pickard, 47). Fleming ""had become alarmed that his earlier thrillers, designed for an adult audience, were increasingly read in schools… where young people made a hero out of James Bond… He did not regard Bond as a heroic figure 'but only as an efficient professional in his job.' Therefore he had sought to write a 'cautionary tale' to put the record straight, particularly for his younger readers. Unable to do this in his usual narrative style, he had invented a heroine 'through whom I could examine Bond from the other end of the gun barrel, so to speak'"" (Lycett, 401-02). Without quad mark between ""E"" and ""M"" of ""Fleming"" on title page (no priority established). Made into the 1977 film of the same title, starring Roger Moore and Barbara Bach. Gilbert A10a (1.1). Book fine. Light wear to extremities of bright dust jacket with tape repair to the verso of spine head. A near-fine copy.

      MGM 1962 - Vintage original 10 x 8" (25 x 20 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, UK. James Mason, Shelley Winters, Sue Lyon, Peter Sellers, Lois Maxwell, dir: Stanley Kubrick; MGM. One of the most iconic movie posters of all time. An extremely rare behind-the-scenes portrait image of star Sue Lyon, as photographed by Stanley Kubrick himself. Although many photos from this film have been attributed to Kubrick, this is the only one we have ever handled which can be clearly identified as his work. Very controversial was the novel by Vladimir Nabokov (who did the adapted screenplay) about a 40-something French literature professor and his obsession with the 12 year-old daughter of his landlady. And very controversial to this day is the film. The censors were after the script from day one, and Lolita's age had to be raised to 14. In the end, Kubrick

        Fantastic large photo of President Kennedy with John Glen and LBJ

      n.p., c. 1962. 13.5" x 10.25". "Glossy black and white photo, 13.5"" x 10.25"", depicting President Kennedy, John Glen and Lyndon Baynes Johnson, circa 1962. Several corner creases with other very faint soft horizontal creasing, else near fine. Verso has light pencil marks and the official Saturday Evening Post stamp of ""Mr. Ollie Atkins / Washington Photographer / The Saturday Evening Post / 1000 - 16th St. N. W. / Washington 6 D.C.""A wonderful image, frozen in time, of President Kennedy with John Glen and Lyndon Baynes Johnson. President John F. Kennedy, met with John Glen both at Cape Canaveral as well as in Washington DC. and presented him NASA's Distinguished Service Medal after orbiting the planet three times in his little capsule, Friendship 7. In the five hours of his flight on Feb. 20, 1962, Mr. Glenn joined a select roster of Americans whose feats have seized the country’s imagination and come to embody a moment in its history, figures like Lewis and Clark, the Wright brothers and Charles Lindbergh.The Cold War had long stoked fears of nuclear destruction, and the Russians seemed to be winning the contest with their unsettling ascent into outer space. Two Russians had already orbited Earth the year before, overshadowing the feats of two Americans, Alan B. Shepard and Virgil I. Grissom, who had been launched only to the fringes of space. In his political history of the space age, “The Heavens and the Earth” author Walter A. McDougall described Mr. Glenn’s space mission as a “national catharsis unparalleled.” “It seemed that he had given Americans back their self-respect,” Mr. McDougall added, “and more than that — it seemed Americans dared again to hope.”John Glenn did not return to space for a long time. Kennedy thought him too valuable as a hero to risk losing in an accident. And in ultimate irony, it was Kennedy who died just a year later."

        An Extraordinary Sketchbook of Special Importance, reserved for high points of the artist's creative process.

      OFFERING: A sketchbook of Belgian artist, Simone Schmidt reserved solely for high points of her creative process. The deeply felt works offer a pictorial record of the soul of the artist. THE SKETCHBOOK: with 17 finished Brussels landscapes, including in Uccle and Nassogne, is dated, "de 1962 à 73" on the upper side. Each drawing is done in charcoal on one side of the paper with other media, two with pastel, two with gouache and thirteen with pencil. Drawings were done in clusters, 8 in 1964, 3 in 1968, 3 in 1970 and 3 in 1973. The sketchbook ends with two rhapsodic, three-color abstract gouaches that are both the summation of a lifetime of making art and a leap forward. DOCUMENTATION: 15 landscape drawings have identified views. Two identified views are signed and dated and eleven are dated. Two unidentified views are also dated. There is no documentation for the final two works but they can be reliably dated to 1973. CONDITION: Sketchbook Sheets: bright and clean, a few with slightly bent tips, a few with light edgewear. / Covers: scattered spots and stains, some edgewear. / Binding: solid and reliable, wire hole no. 35 slit. FORMAT: Spiral wire bound, cardstock on the upper side, board on the lower side, ten drawings oriented on the long side, seven on the short side. SIZE: 210 x 270 mm. DRAWINGS DESCRIBED IN IMAGES: No. 4 (1964); charcoal & pencil, a composition, from which emanates a deep wellspring of feeling not often found in modern European art. It continues an exploration of boundaries that imbue with mystery the structures they delineate. A grouping of houses follows the contour of the bottom of a slope. Beyond, a hill rises to an unseen summit; in the foreground, curving back towards the viewer, houses and sheds along a curve of roadway; between them, a stand of trees, leaning away from the viewer towards an unseen sun, forms a field of energy, a mystery of growing. / No. 11 (1968); charcoal & pencil, oriented towards the vertical, a landscape that is a recognizable pattern of hills, trees, homes, cows, and vegetation but also something largely unrecognizable, unknowable and alive. A highly original drawing that strikes out against the idea of a placid, well-ordered countryside and exploits every aspect of the charcoal medium to create a palpable sense of wonder and a living, evolving expanse. / No. 13 (1970); pencil & charcoal, a superb, mystical, representation of the unfolding of the land, showing a high hill view to low hills and lowlands beyond and a ridge running across the horizon. Roads, fields, hills, tumuli, protuberances of rocks and vegetation; arboreal masses and the distant horizon; all become tissue of the earth. / No. 16 (ca. 1973); charcoal & gouache, oriented towards the vertical, a deeply felt, rhapsodic abstract exploring being in the light. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.
