One of a limited edition of 750 numbered copies, this an out of series presentation copy to Robert Laycock and his wife Angela, inscribed by the author on the limitation leaf: "for Bob with love to Angie from Evelyn". Robert Laycock (1907–1968) was a British army officer most remembered for his service with the British Commandos during the Second World War. "An ideal officer for special service employment, Laycock was promoted lieutenant-colonel, and early in 1941 he sailed for the Middle East in command of 'Layforce', an enlarged battalion of five commandos. The little force carried out several minor but hazardous tasks with varying success until it was allotted the daunting mission of rearguard action in the British defence of Crete. Throughout this action (May–June 1941) Laycock's personal assistant was Captain Evelyn Waugh. The experience of the British disaster in Crete is reflected in Waugh's novel Officers and Gentlemen (1955). Laycock and Waugh were in the last British ship to leave the island" (ODNB). With Laycock's bookplate to front pastedown. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Two Original Gelatin Silver Prints of Photographs of Zulu Children in a Missionary Hospital]

      [Np: The Photographer, 1963. Two original glossy double-weight gelatin silver prints from negatives, 11 x 14" (inclusive of margins). Captioned in pencil on verso. About fine. Original prints of two photographs taken by Yousuf Karsh on location in South Africa attendant to the filming of the 1964 Diamond Films production, ZULU, directed by Cy Endfield. Karsh's invitation to join the production and photograph the cast and locale resulted in a sequence of photographs of a very high order, and his interest in the Zulu people lead to additional photographs not directly associated with the film, such as these. The present images are two variants of the same situation, a large gathering of Zulu children, some seated, some standing, with a Caucasian nun, in habit, caring for one of the youngest of the children. The images are denoted numbers 317 and 410 in the sequence, and are captioned in pencil: "At a missionary hospital in Zululand" and "Time for milk at a missionary hospital in Zululand." Although this project is not as widely known as Karsh's formal portraiture, examples of the resulting images have featured prominently in both museum and print retrospectives of his career.

        Without Prejudice. One Hundred Letters from Frederick William Rolfe "Baron Corvo" to John Lane. Edited with an Introduction by Cecil Woolf and Privately Printed for Allen Lane

      [Westerham Press, Kent] Christmas 1963 - Title printed in red and black, four illustrations and two facsimiles of letters. 8vo. [252 x 160 x 15 mm]. [5]ff, 9-119, [1] pp. Bound by Roger Powell in green goatskin, the covers with the title lettered in gilt in five lines at the head, the spine with a single band towards the head and lettered downwards in gilt, lemon and light blue endleaves, top edge gilt, others uncut. Privately printed and limited to 600 copies. The book was designed by Hans Schmoller. The binding is unsigned and undated but it came from the personal collection of Roger Powell, and was sold with the contents of his bindery and his books at Bonhams, Knowle, 23/11/2005 as part of lot 501. Powell held on to a number of his own bindings, some of which he had previously gifted to family members. The binding has the outwards appearance of classic Powell binding, with the decoration confined to hand lettering. However, it does not open freely and the endleaves have partly lifted from the inside of the covers. It may have been an experimental binding (I have not seen these endleaves used again) or it could have been forwarded by one of Powell's assistants. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Manuscript Archive - US Intelligence in Communist China

      China, 1963. China, 1963. Document archive of a journey to China for a pseudo-clandestine reconnaissance, made by author and poet R. P. Lister, featuring a fair journal in typescript transcribed by the author himself from his original travel diary, an introductory account describing the nature and purpose of the journey, and his draft copies of seven articles written upon his return, together with a travel itinerary, other travel papers and vouchers including a Visa request receipt from the China International Tourist Service completed in manuscript and miniature hotel room cards, sightseeing pamphlets, and newspaper articles of importance in China at the time of his travel. Also with a scant few papers pertaining to a one day visit to Moscow. Typescript fair journal: 8vo. 77 pages, with a scant few manuscript drawings. This account is present in duplicate, typed simultaneously onto light tissue paper creating a carbon copy. Typescript pre-press drafts of articles: 8vo. 55 pages combined, including revisions, with annotations throughout. Some of these are also found in duplicate. Typescript introduction to the mission titled "Unexpectedly to China": 8vo. 25 pages including minor revisions in manuscript. A single copy. Travel vouchers and receipts: These vary in size, the smallest measuring 6 x 2,5 cm (hotel room cards) and the largest measuring 13 x 15cm (Visa receipt), mostly on tissue paper, several inscribed in manuscript in China. Pamphlets and newspaper cuttings vary in size and attributes. The lot in very good condition, contained in the author's own original folders and envelopes inscribed in manuscript. Richard Percival Lister (1914-2014), was an English author, poet, artist and metallurgist. 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.

        Selden Society. Annual Series. Vols. 1-80 (1887-1963)

      1963. The First 76 years of the Selden Society Year Books Selden Society. Annual Series. Vols. 1 to 80 (1887-1963). London: Selden Society, 1887-1963. Original blue gilt stamped cloth, light shelfwear. Ex-library with location labels at foot of spines and stamps, else a very good set. Interiors otherwise clean. Reprint Price USD 7,512. * A detailed list of the contents of each volume is available. The Selden Society's principal achievement has been the publication of its annual series, which includes essential source materials of the common law, including law reports dating back to the Middle Ages (known as the Year Books), plea rolls and courts' records, eyre rolls of itinerant justices, select leading cases in the courts of King's Bench, Chancery, Star Chamber, Admiralty, Requests, Exchequer Chamber, and Privy Council; and in local, manorial, ecclesiastical, and mercantile courts. Select charters of trading companies, borough customs, and records of public works show the development of business enterprise and local government. Professional literature, early treatises, formularies, judges' notebooks, and lecturers' readings on statutes show the development of the legal profession, early legal education, the inns of court, and their teaching methods. The publication of English legal materials is an unfinished project! The Selden Society edits, translates, and publishes one volume each year which often contains materials appearing for the first time in print. The contents of each volume are explained and discussed in its introduction; and these introductions therefore represent much of the research and scholarship that has been devoted over the past hundred years to the development of the common law and its institutions.

        La Cerise

      1963 - 443 p. Paris, Plon, 1963, in-8, 443 p, broché, Édition originale. Tirage à 55 exemplaires numérotés sur papier pur fil Lafuma (n°4). Deuxième roman d'Alphonse Boudard (1925-2000), La Cerise dévoile ses années d'incarcération. Le titre fait probablement écho à l'expression "se faire la cerise", c'est-à-dire "fuir", clin d’œil à son passé délinquant. Le roman remporte le prix Sainte-Beuve en 1963. A travers son œuvre, l'auteur se plaît à manier la langue, entre culture lettrée, argot et gauloiseries. C'est un romancier au parcours atypique : Résistant pendant la 2ème guerre mondiale, il entre dans le réseau Navarre et s'engage dans l'armée De Lattre de Tassigny, qui fait partie de l'Armée française de la Libération. Après la guerre, il passe plusieurs années en prison pour cambriolage et trafic de fausse monnaie. C'est derrière les barreaux qu'il se forge une culture littéraire. Fort de son expérience dans la vie, et de ses nombreuses lectures, il commence à écrire après sa sortie de prison en 1958. Son premier roman, La Métamorphose des cloportes, publié en 1962, obtient le prix Renaudot. Il sera adapté au cinéma par Pierre Granier-Deferre, avec des dialogues de M. Audiard. Il s'essaye lui-aussi au cinéma, via les adaptations de ses romans (Le Tatoué avec Jean Gabin), et en collaborant à divers scénarios. Sur la page de faux-titre, un envoi de l'auteur à Jacques Delarue (1919-2014), résistant, historien et ancien commissaire de Police. A la Libération, il s'occupe des poursuites contre les collaborateurs au régime nazi. Alphonse Boudard s'amuse de la signification de son titre, dont il sait que Delarue comprendra le sens sans avoir "besoin de glossaire". Bel exemplaire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Florenz. Aquarell.

      1963 - Monogrammiert in Aquarell. Signiert, datiert und betitelt "Friedrich Gotsch 63 / - Florenz -". Farbfrische Arbeit auf Bütten. Blattfüllendes, farbintensives Aquarell mit breiten Pinselstrichen, teilweise naß in naß gearbeitet. Von einem erhöhten Standpunkt aus malt Gotsch die Stadt mit dem Florentiner Dom Santa Maria del Fiore im Zentrum, dessen Kuppel der einzige konkrete Hinweis auf die toskanische Metropole ist. Umspannt wird die Stadt von einem mediterranen, blauen Himmel und die leuchtenden Farbtöne des Südens. - 1920 beginnt F. K. Gotsch ein Studium an der Sächsische Akademie der Künste Dresden und wird ein Meisterschüler von Oskar Kokoschka. Hier hat er Kontakt mit Hilde Goldschmidt und Hans Meyboden. Zu Studienaufenthalten hält er sich in New York, Paris, Italien und Südfrankreich, München und Berlin auf. Bei einem Luftangriff während des Zweiten Weltkriegs wurde sein Berliner Atelier und fast sein komplettes Werk zerstört. Nachdem Gotsch in den ersten Nachkriegsjahren vorrangig kulturpolitisch tätig ist, konzentriert er sich ab 1951 wieder vollständig auf seine künstlerische Arbeit. Nach einer Phase intensiver Auseinandersetzung mit dem Kubismus Picassos und des Experimentierens mit abstrakten Darstellungsformen entwickelt der Künstler den für sein weiteres Werk typischen "späten Expressionismus". Als einer der wenigen gegenständlich malenden Künstler seiner Generation kann sich Gotsch schon zu Lebzeiten öffentlicher Anerkennung erfreuen. - Minimale Griffknicke an den Blattkanten.

        Gutter Girls [The Yellow Teddybears; The Yellow Golliwog] (Original screenplay, director Robert Hartford-Davis' working copy)

      London: Tekli Film Productions / Animated Motion Pictures, 1963. Final shooting script for the 1963 film, "The Yellow Teddybears," here under both that title and the film's working title, "The Yellow Golliwog," and released in the US as "Gutter Girls." Directed by Robert Hartford-Davis and written for the screen by Donald and Derek Ford. Director Robert Hartford-Davis' working copy, with his holograph ink and penciled notations, deletions, and drawings throughout. Though instantly packaged at the time (and indeed, today) as a sexy exploitation film, "The Yellow Teddybears" is very much a pre-"Swinging London" message picture, about a group of girls at a girls' boarding school who wear a small yellow teddy bear on their lapels to indicate they have lost their virginity. Red titled wrappers with title window, single call sheet dated April 5, 1963, both in a custom green cloth spring back binder with the director's initials ("RHD"), the film's final title ("The Yellow Teddybears") and the production company ("Tekli Film Productions Ltd") embossed in yellow on the front board. Title page present, with credits for screenwriters Donald and Derek Ford, the two production companies (Tekli and Animated Motion Pictures), noted as FINAL, and dated February 1963. 85 leaves, mimeograph, with pink and goldenrod revision pages throughout. Pages and wrapper Very Good plus, bound with three silver brads. Binder Near Fine.

        SECONDS .

      Pantheon Books A Division of Random House [1963], New York - Octavo, cloth-backed boards. The story of a man caught up by a nameless organization that uses advanced managerial and technological methods to achieve its singular aim -- lifting the moral and physical barriers to personal liberty and self-indulgence. Brilliantly filmed by John Frankenheimer with Rock Hudson as the hapless victim of a shadowy organization which ultimately kills him and recycles his body parts. "Like David Ely's slender, nightmarish novel, SECONDS has a thinly science-fictional rationale, but it is actually an exercise in Kafkaesque horror . Outstandingly photographed by James Wong Howe, extremely well played by the whole cast (the choice of Hudson as every man's self-image is inspired), and directed with the imaginative flair John Frankenheimer brought to The Manchurian Candidate, Seven Days in May, and 99 and 44/100% Dead, SECONDS is perhaps the scariest movie of the 1960s." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 374. Reginald 37728. Hubin (1994), p. 266. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket with two light blue horizontal lines on the verso of the jacket (offset from a previous jacket protector) with slight bleed through at jacket flaps. A sharp copy.

      Los Angeles, 1963. Promotional broadside, designed to resemble an oversized postcard, for the Los Angeles premiere of Adolfas Mekas' feature film debut, "Hallelujah the Hills," along with the debut of Kenneth Anger's short film, "Scorpio Rising."

"Hallelujah the Hills," a surreal comedy satirizing politics, American pop culture, religion, and sexual mores, was the first feature film in that movement. 11.5 x 9.25 inches, black and white type and illustrations on brown card stock, printed on recto only. Slight toning at the edges, brief creasing to one corner, else Near Fine.
