        The Making of the English Working Class

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd,, 1963. Octavo. Original blue boards, gilt-lettered spine. With the dust jacket. Spine-ends lightly bumped, slight marking to front free endpaper. An excellent copy in the bright dust jacket very slightly sunned and chipped on the spine. First edition, first impression. Thompson "felt that he had much to learn from the life experiences of his working-class students. The whole tone of his most celebrated work, The Making of the English Working Class (1963), which made his reputation, testifies to this. It was fittingly dedicated to one of these students, and for all its international success it is impossible not to sense that the audience he felt himself to be addressing was a wider one than that of the academy" (ODNB). Scarce in the jacket.

      1963 - CARTIER-BRESSON, Henri. Photographs. New York: Grossman, 1963. Small quarto, original blue cloth, original photographic dust jacket. $2500.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.

The printed author's note reads "Nothing remains but to dedicate this biased, cranky but at least zestful hotchpotch to my friends and colleagues on The Sunday Times in London and abroad, and particularly to a man called 'CD', who pulled the trigger.....". Sir Charles Denis Hamilton was a close friend and colleague of Ian Fleming, a director of Kemsley Newspapers and editor of the Sunday Times. Fleming had written seven James Bond novels when he was approached by Hamilton with a plum journalistic assignment: to take a five-week, all-expenses-paid trip to visit the world's most exciting cities. Fleming's trip took in Hong Kong, Macau and Tokyo, then Honolulu, and back home via the major US cities. The material he gathered for this book also furnished much of the backdrop and research for the five Bond novels and seven short stories that would follow.
