This is a First Edition, First State dust jacket with no reviews on real panel and a $5.95 price on the bottom corner of the front flap. 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." .

[= "Für Bob [Robert] Taber Mitwirkender / bei diesen [im Buch geschilderten] Ereignissen brüderlich / Che // New York 13/12/64]. - // - Diese Widmung Che Guevaras entstand anlässlich seines Besuchs in New York, wo er zwei Tage vorher, am 11. Dezember, als Leiter der kubanischen Delegation eine vielbeachtete Rede vor den Vereinten Nationen hielt. Ches Aufruf zur revolutionären Gewalt als Mittel der internationalen Politik war der Höhe- und zugleich Wendepunkt seiner Karriere als kubanischer Revolutionär. Der realpolitisch orientierte Fidel Castro wandte sich zunehmend von Che ab. - // - Der Adressat der Widmung, CBS Reporter Robert Taber, war 1957 als investigativer Journalist in die umkämpften Ostteile Kubas gegangen, um die Lüge Batistas aufzudecken, dass Fidel Castro tot sei. Sein Interview mit Castro bewirkte den historischen Wendepunkt für die Kubanische Revolution. Ebenso war er während des Invasionsversuchs im April 1961 (Schweinebucht) der einzige amerikanische Reporter auf Seiten der Revolutionskämpfer und wurde dabei sogar verwundet. - Der vordere Deckel der Broschur hat sich gelöst, der hintere mit Wasserrand, der Umschlag ist stark berieben.

Erstausgabe, ebenfalls mit Widmung des Autors. - Es ist dies die erste genaue Reportage über den Sieg des "Movimiento Revolutionario 26 de Julio" [Bewegung des 26. Juli], eines kleinen Trupps von Revolutionären über eine riesige Armee. - Am 6. April 1960 hatte Taler eine ganzseitige Anzeige in der New York Times zur Unterstützung Kubas veröffentlicht und das "Fair Play for Cuba Committee" gegründet. Diese Aktivitäten wurden von zahlreichen Intellektuellen wie Norman Mailer, James Baldwin, Truman Capote und Jean-Paul Sartre unterstütz, aber auch von so berüchtigten Gestalten wie Lee Harvey Oswald, dem mutmaßlichen Mörder (22.11.1963) von John F. Kennedy. - /// - [Beschreibung in Englisch: Author`s presentation copy with dedication (4 lines) on half-title of "Pasajes de la Guerra Revolucionaria" [history of the revolution war on Cuba] to Robert Taber, a friend. - First edition of the most famous book of Che Guevara inscribed on the occasion of his visit to New York in December 1964, when Che Guevara addressed the United Nations assembly as head of the Cuban delegation. - Cover rubbed and bumped, upper cover detached, lower cover damp stained, inside and inscription - page very good. - A copy of Robert Taber`s book "M-26" is added. - First edition, verso flying endpaper with nine-line handwritten dedication and signature of Taber. - On flap: "Here is the first accurate report of the incredible six-year struggle in which fifteen hundred rebels` triumphed over a force of thirty-five thousand heavily-armed men."

        MONUMENT. A Lithograph. ARTIST PROOF Signed 1963

      Associated American Artists, n.p. 1963 - Image measures approx 14 1/8 X 22 1/2 inches, overall (framed under glass) 31 1/4 x 26 inches. This copy is marked "Artist Proof, '63" and signed by the artist in pencil. There was an edition of 50 signed. Printed by Lucien Detruit, in Paris, on Arches paper. At seventeen, Hirsch was given a four-year scholarship to the Pennysylvania Museum School of Industrial Art by the city of Philadelphia winning awards in drawing and illustration, and he also studied with George Luks in New York. From Luks he developed a strong feeling for social realism and commentary. Hirsch's images are strong, uncluttered, and deal with living realities in urban situations, showing the tender and touch moments of the ordinary man in a compassionate and realistic manner. Hirsch's drawing of Willy Loman, slouched with face unseen, carrying his salesman's suitcases, used on the dust jacket of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman (as well as the poster for the play), is a classic image that powerfully depicts much about humanity. It has been said that this image "Monument" is an image worthy to commemorate heroes from 9/11, as it shows a man on his hands and knees, shoeless, covered in dirt and soot, stunned but undaunted.

        Le joli mai [The Lovely Month of May] (Original photograph from the 1963 film documentary, issued for use at the first New York Film Festival in 1963)

      Paris: Chris Marker, 1963. Vintage still photograph from the 1963 film documentary. With stamps from the National Film Archive (noting "duplicate" and "no negative") and a snipe noting that the film will screen on Wednesday, September 18 (1963) as part of the first New York Film Festival. A serious rarity, this being the only still photograph from the film we have ever encountered. In the Spring of 1962, at the end of the Algerian War, Marker and his cinematographer Pierre Lhomme shot 55 hours of footage on the streets of Paris, interviewing random people, with Marker remaining unseen. The topics range from personal lives to social and political issues, with Marker's commentary in voiceover narrative form, read by Yves Montand in the French version and Simone Signoret in the English version. Marker shot his legendary short, "La Jetée," simultaneously with this film. Winner of the 1963 Venice Film Festival award for Best First Work and the Golden Dove Award at the Leipzig DOK Festival. 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). In an archival mat. Near Fine.

During the Second World War he worked in the Royal Naval Torpedo Factory in Greenock in Scotland, the Royal Aircraft Establishment in Farnborough, Hampshire, and the Ministry of Aircraft Production in London. In 1950 he abandoned metallurgy for full-time writing, publishing most of his works under the name R. P. Lister, including some 400 poems and several books. They include prose novels, autobiographical accounts of travel and other experiences, historical works, and poetry. His travel books are especially engaging, and reputed for the highly personal manner in which he writes. These are also largely illustrated by himself. From 1954 to 1957, he was also general editor for the publishing house Macdonald & Evans Ltd. In 1970 he became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. Lister later became in effect a professional artist in response to enthusiasm for his paintings, earning income from his art. Receiving accolades for his written works as well as his art, Lister has been described as a "reflective, quizzical and un-phased" man, "gently testing humanity," and "a buoyant, erudite, very funny poet." The University of Texas, Harry Ransom Center, holds a collection of R. P. Lister manuscripts relating to the London literary society. According to his own typed account found in the present archive of documents, Lister embarked on a tour of China, ostensibly as a visitor, but, in actuality, on a purposeful, investigative, and somewhat risky expedition on behalf of New York's Associated Press. The mission unveils itself to be a reconnaissance mission to gather information on civilian welfare, the state of economy, on industry, and Communist governance. [For twenty years (1949-1969), the government of the United States of America tried to disrupt, destabilize, and weaken China's communist government, establishing military alliances along China's eastern and southern borders, cutting off trade and orchestrating an international embargo of China, and effectively creating a division between China and the Soviet Union with their so-called "wedge strategy." These efforts and campaigns, naturally, caused China to be suspect of all foreign journalists, and hostile towards American visitors in general.] Lister being an English subject, a travel writer and poet, posed no visible threat to Chinese authorities, was an ideal candidate in the eyes of the major American press agency, and therefore selected as investigator and informant. His expedition being entirely funded by the agency, paid in cash for absolute concealment from potential Chinese spies, began in Peking (Beijing) after a transfer the Omsk airport in Russia. Upon his return to the Western world, Lister wrote and published at least seven unique articles to be published in American periodicals. Further research is warranted to ascertain whether all were published. Here, his draft copies are titled as follows: Red Giants, Old and New The Elusive Gap - Between Plan and Reality Children of the New China Chang's Seventy Yuang The Next Twenty-Five Years The Land of Yesterday and Tomorrow The New Dynasty Especially fascinating is a 25 page typed account which reveals the covert design of the expedition, the secrecy in organizing his funding and so forth, and occasions of "dutiful tourism" whilst privily observing an unsuspecting people and government. Lister being both an astute observer and a skilled writer, his own private diary, 77 pages typed, provides generously, with statistics and notes on commerce, agriculture, and politics, including production of pottery, wine, tea, silk, bricks, carved ivory artefacts, so forth. His journey being in the recent post liberation era, he learns directly by interviewing Chinese civilians, of improved wages, new sanatoriums, improved education and a movement for abolition of illiteracy, medical treatment and standards of living. Over a three week period he extracts an appreciable amount of information, travelling to Beijing, Hankou, Hubei, Shiwan, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Taiping, and back to Beijing for the return journey via Russia. Excerpts from Lister's introductory account and journal: "Unexpectedly to China" - An Introductory Account: "I never had any intention of going to China until four weeks before I left... A friend of mine from New York was in London... I went along to the press agency... Joe said they wanted a man to go to China and see what things were like there, only they could not send one of their own men, because they were all journalists and Americans, and the Chinese had some kind of objection to both... They were so nervous about the Chinese attitude to Americans and journalists that they would not even give me a cheque, in case the Chinese had spied sitting in my bank... So I collected a hundred and seventeen five-pound notes and set off down the Strand... these notes tucked into my inside pocket, feeling like a secret agent..." "The Chinese were uncommonly swift with my visa... probably the fact that I declared myself free from religious beliefs or political affiliations turned the scale... A few hours later we were in Moscow... filling in a lot of green forms with inaccurate statements about the amount of British, Russian and Chinese currency we had with us..." "There were thirteen of us. Two were writers, like myself..." "... on to Peking... Everybody stared at me. I am a rare sight, it seemed, even in Peking, the European was unexpected enough... We spent the day in dutiful tourism, visiting the Imperial Palace - the Forbidden City...the immense Tien An Men Square... the Great Hall of the People... in the evening... off to a theatre... Flanking us was a row of soldiery..." "... Wuhan, on the Yangtze River... seemed more thoroughly Chinese than Peking with its metropolitan apparatus of national government... My impressions of Peking were reinforced; undoubtedly these people were crushed by a tyrannical government, and half-starved, but they succeeded in looking neither crushed nor starved... the children were fat and happy... a general air of purposeful activity, and a greater air of apparent contentment than is immediately visible in Chicago or Stockton-on-Tees. Clearly I was being brainwashed... " "Everything in China has happened since the Liberation. On October 1st, 1949 Moa Tse-Tung proclaimed the founding of the People's Republic... and illustrates the superiority of the Marxist-Leninist way of life... " "Human muscle does most of the work that in the West would be done by machines... may explain to some extent the bland Chinese attitude toward birth control... In rural areas, mechanical transport is almost non-existent... " "In every town... meeting with the local C.I.T.F. [China International Travel Service] officials... we were exposed to the full delegate-ritual of Communist countries... and a toast of British-Chinese friendship." "The Chinese were not reluctant to talk about their difficulties. This was a poor backward country, they told us... They have a furious impatience with revisionism, the departure from the pure faith. Russia is an old and still-valued friend who has gone astray... They consider that journalists would only send out biased reports of them..." "This seems to be - I am speaking from the standpoint of what we saw and heard... - the one country in the world whose inhabitants do not feel themselves to be menaced by anybody.... The one true enemy is America..." "Notes on a Journey to China" - Lister's Diary: "Yangste River Bridge... one of the oddities of the Chinese bureaucratic dictatorship... not allowed to take photographs from the top of the bridge - the roadway - because there is a militia post on the top of a hill on the north side of Yangtse, almost out of sight, and taking photographs of militia posts or militiamen is strictly forbidden..." "D and I talked much on the way back to Li and Ray about medical treatment, standard s of living, and the unfortunate matter of the W. German journalists who published those carefully selected photographs showing the seamier sides of life in the People's Republic." "Ivory carving factory... scrapings are used in medicine - eye complaints... Mostly one man from start to finish. Ivory imported through Hong Kong." "Fushan village commune... estab. end of Aug. 1958. 11,700 households, 44,000 people, 18,000 labour force... All communal enterprises serve agricultural production... Welfare facilities: hospitals, clinics, medical stations, primary school... Members of commune work very happily and each woman has 6 days & each man 4 days holiday per month..." "Before liberation... half of cultivated land was owned by landlords, about 20-30% by middle or poorer classes... They earn according to how much is picked, not hours worked..." "Ping Fung Workers' Sanatorium... Built 1954... 800 beds... People who come to cure their chronic diseases... those who come for short rest... Treatment usually combines Chinese traditional medicine and Western medicine... electro-therapy, hydratherapy, wax therapy, heat treatment, ultraviolet, infrared etc. Also Chinese liquid medicine, acupuncture..." "Ming Hung Industrial Area... 26 km from Shanghai...All inhabitants of MH are workers in the Ming Hung Industrial Area. Many recently built factories... Cinemas, park, library... New hospital... This is one of the 12 districts of Shanghai... No light was here and no running water... Couple with 1 child have 1 room. 5-6 people 2 rooms..." End excerpts. Some years later, R. P. Lister would write two books on China, "The Secret History of Genghis Khan," published in London by Peter Davies, 1969, and "Marco Polo's Travels (in Xanadu with Kublai Khan)," published in London by Gordon & Cremonesi, 1976.
