        One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich

      1963 - SOLZHENITSYN, Alexander. One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. New York: E.P. Dutton, 1963. Octavo, original gray cloth, original dust jacket. $12,000.First edition in English of the Nobel Prize-winner's first published work, signed on the half title by Solzhenitsyn in Cyrillic, along with an inscription in English in an unidentified hand, "For the C"" Family."The speech denouncing Stalin at the 22nd Communist Party Congress in 1961 emboldened Solzhenitsyn to submit One Day for publication to". the Moscow literary journal Novyi Mir. Premier Nikita Khrushchev piloted a special resolution through the Central Committee authorizing its publication; it appeared in November 1962, and Solzhenitsyn found himself catapulted to literary fame by his first published work, not only for its intrinsic merits but for the very fact that the government was allowing fictional treatment of a formerly forbidden topic, life in Stalin's forced-labor camps" (Terras, Handbook of Russian Literature, 437). The novel was based on Solzhenitsyn's eight-year incarceration in a Kazakhstan labor camp. It is the first and perhaps the best example of this Nobel laureate's belief in "the indivisibility of truth and 'the perception of world literature as the one great heart which beats for the concerns and misfortunes of our world" (Solzhenitsyn, Nobel prize acceptance speech, 1970). This, the first English translation, was faithful to the Russian original and necessarily included the "deliberately muted themes" resultant from Solzhenitsyn's self-censorship required for publication in the Soviet Union in 1962. Translated by Ralph Parker. With a foreword by Alexander Tvardovsky, the editor who accepted the novel for publication in Novyi Mir. Issued simultaneously in English and American trade editions. "First Edition" stated on copyright page. Lightest edge-wear to dust jacket. An about-fine signed copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      1963 - (KENNEDY, Jacqueline) SHAW, Mark. Gelatin silver print. New York: Mark Shaw, 1963. Black-and-white photographic print, measuring 13-1/2 by 9 inches. Handsomely matted and framed, entire piece measures 22 by 18 inches. $6800.Vintage photographic print depicting Jackie Kennedy walking along the Georgetown canal. Bears Shaw's own studio stamp and "Private Print" on verso.Photographed during the last weeks before the presidential election in 1959, this image was evidently printed by photographer Mark Shaw in 1963, most likely in preparation for his book, The John F. Kennedys. The gelatin silver print shows Jackie Kennedy on one of the regular late morning walks she took along the Georgetown canal after JFK left for the Senate Office Building. "Just as Abraham Lincoln thought Mathew Brady's photography won him the presidency, so Jackie Kennedy thought Mark Shaw's pictures helped her husband win the 1960 election. "˜They really should be in the National Gallery!' she enthused". Shaw was very much a part of Camelot and his most famous still photography is associated with that period" (Sullivan, 492). Shaw began his career as a fashion photographer for publications including Harper's Bazaar, Mademoiselle, and LIFE Magazine. His talent for discovering new designers and trends caught the eye of Jackie Kennedy, who was growing increasingly visible as the wife of a senator and who was already on her way to becoming a style icon. In 1959, seeking to bolster JFK's presidential campaign, the Kennedys agreed to let Shaw have unrestricted access to their home and lives in order to do a photo-essay for LIFE called A Frontrunner's Wife. Shaw proved unintrusive, managing to take extraordinary candid shots that Jackie compared to the work of Caravaggio. Shaw quickly became a family friend and was a frequent guest in the Kennedy home. Allowed complete access to the family, Shaw began to take photographs of the Kennedys in Georgetown and in Washington; on vacation in Hyannis Port and elsewhere; and even in the White House once JFK was elected President. In 1964, the year after this print was produced, the image appeared as a half-tone in The John F. Kennedys, a photobook that Shaw compiled just after JFK's assassination for Farrar, Straus as a tribute to the family he had grown to love. After JFK died, Shaw became quite protective of the Kennedy prints and put together just five complete albums of the photographs used in the books to be given to four members of the Kennedy family and Dr. Max Jacobson, Kennedy's personal physician. As Shaw died unexpectedly in 1969 at the age of 47, Kennedy prints bearing his studio stamps are quite rare. Shaw studio stamp dated 1963 and "Private Print" stamp on verso. Red and black pencil and pen labeling and measurements on verso.Fine condition. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

This book was the winner of the Faulkner Foundation Award for best first novel of the year. "This will almost certainly be the most original novel published in 1963. It is a wild, macabre tale of the twentieth century and of two men." "Hailing from Long Island, Pynchon served two years in the United States Navy and earned an English degree from Cornell University. After publishing several short stories in the late 1950s and early 1960s, he began composing the novels for which he is best known: V. (1963) , The Crying of Lot 49 (1966) , Gravity's Rainbow (1973) , and Mason & Dixon (1997). Pynchon is also notoriously reclusive; very few photographs of him have ever been published, and rumors about his location and identity have circulated since the 1960s."

Missing these 34 issues: 116, 117, 118, 119, 120, 124, 125, 126, 127, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 138, 139, 140, 141, 142, 143, 144, 145, 146, 147, 148, 150, 151, 152, 237, 268. Includes three additional special supplements from 1944, as well as a small stack of additional circulars and correspondence from the organization. Take up about 15" of shelf space, stacked. More than two decades' worth of organizational and motivational periodicals from the metaphysical self-help group, or semi-religious fraternal order, of The Mayans, based in San Antonio, Texas. The group was created in the 1930s by William Perry "Koran" Taylor (d. 1953) and his wife Anna Morofsky "Rose Dawn" Taylor (b. 1957). These issues seem to represent their hey-day, although the organization is said to still maintain an office and generate publications. Each issue presents essays and lessons for the members to follow. Successful completion of tasks helps the member advance by degrees within the order. Three special supplementary issues from 1944 are also included here, as is a stack of additional circulars, holiday meditations, and random correspondence from the organization across the same time period. A rare find.

        Simulacri de la morte

      Milano , ALL'INSEGNA DEL PESCE D'ORO, Serie incisioni originali 1963 - Dieci silografie originali numerate e firmate a matita (cm 6,6x5,6). Introduzione di Pier Carlo Santini. 24mo. pp. 16 + incisioni. . Ottimo (Fine). . Edizione originale di 60 + A-E es. numerati. . Le 10 silografie della cartella furono eseguite da Antony de Witt negli anni 1910-11, e si possono considerare inedite, avendone l'artista tirato solo qualche copia a mano per proprio uso e controllo. Il lavoro, cominciato a Napoli e proseguito a Livorno, fu completato a Lucca in non meno di un anno. Provvedutosi del legno necessario (fu scelto il sorbo anziché il più abituale bosso) egli adoperò il legno di testa seguendo la tecnica che gli inglesi chiamano ''wood-cut'' cioè dell'intaglio, col nero sul bianco e non viceversa: la più idonea, anche se la più difficile, a tradurre un segno minuto, raffinato e prezioso. Per la concezione di questi Simulacri de Witt si è dichiaratamente ispirato alla ''Danza della morte'' di Holbein, facendo anche tesoro del lungo studio e amore per l'incisione nostra quattro e cinquecentesca. La morte - lo scheletro umano - corrisponde da un lato al desiderio di fissare simbolicamente visioni di suggestione ancora romantica non scevre di spunti e di tentazioni tra il grottesco e l'ironico, ma è anche un modo di richiamarsi agli interessi per le scienze naturali alle quali già in precedenza aveva dato gran parte di sé. La morte, maschio e femmina, si incarna nelle figure dello stampatore, del cacciatore, della donna che suona l'organetto sopra la cassa in cui giace l'innamorato, rispecchiando ora un racconto biblico, ora una leggenda classica,ora più semplicemente un episodio di vita popolare o paesana.

      1963 - CARTIER-BRESSON, Henri. Photographs. New York: Grossman, 1963. Small quarto, original blue cloth, original photographic dust jacket. $1200.First edition of this memorable Cartier-Bresson monograph, with 47 finely screened photogravure plates representing striking images from three decades, this association copy signed by photographer Margery Lewis Smith, longtime partner of W. Eugene Smith, the renowned photojournalist who in 1958 was named one of "the world's ten greatest photographers," together with Cartier-Bresson and others."Regarded by the French as a national treasure, mentioned as a touchstone in almost every article in the popular photographic press, emulated by legions of photographers, Cartier-Bresson has delighted and informed millions with his photographs" (Claude Cookman). "He has a special interest in photographing people and in capturing the essence of what has not previously been seen. He is famous for his theory of the "'decisive moment'-that is seizing the split second when the subject stands revealed in its most significant aspect". Today he ranks as one of the most important and influential photographers of this century" (Blodgett, 96). This wonderful retrospective selection of his work reflects his continual "search for the harmony and balance manifested in all events; he photographed to find the "'transcendent' order that links all cultures, all nations, and all historical moments" (Roth, 20). With essays by Lincoln Kirstein and Beaumont Newhall. Signed by Margery Lewis Smith, a photographer featured in Steichen's 1955 Family of Man exhibit and the longtime partner of famed photographer W. Eugene Smith.
