        The Universal Unified Field Law and The Law of Universal Creation of Mass-Energy

      Universal Science Foundation, Phoenix, AZ 1963 - Signed 281 pages. Author signed and inscribed this copy to John Dumont upon front free endpaper. "In this presentation, it will be shown that all components within every system, including all primary measurable forms of mass-energy and all complex components derived therefrom, function perpetually in accordance with the laws of motion in absolute freely-moving-body environments. It will also be shown that the bonding forces of any structural frame of any particle are nothing more and nothing less than the stability that results from pure vector mechanics in equilibria, functioning as freely-moving, composite frames, and that the stability is conserved through the instant mutual exchange of kinetic-energy-momenta. Therefore, all events should be considered purely as mechanical phenomena, and should never be considered as general or abstract phenomena." - from Introduction. Includes over a dozen black and white figures. Unmarked. Moderate wear. Binding intact. Gilt lettering upon navy backstrip and front board moderately rubbed but remains legible. A sound copy.

        The Centaur

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1963. First. First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper with a few very tiny tears. Winner of the National Book Award. Inscribed by the author: "for Herb Yellin, this ancient text with affection and esteem, John Updike." Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike "...liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association and a nicer than usual copy. .

        Two Tales: ???????? ???? [Matryona's House] and ?????? ?? ??????? ?????????? [Incident at Krechetovka Station]].

      Flegon Press London 1963 - Tall 8vo. 55 pp.; light marginal creases to lower corner of first leaves, light marginal staining to p.35. Publisher's yellow printed wrappers; a bit rubbed, some stains to covers, upper cover with light creases and marks of sunning. Good copy of the rare first edition in book form of the Solzhenitsyn's second published works, which had previously appeared in 'Noviy Mir'. This was also the second publication of the Flegon Press, following on from the pirate edition of 'One Day in the life of Ivan Denisovich'. The title character of "Matryona's Home," an impoverished peasant woman, endures her drab life until she is killed in a train accident. Figuring into a long tradition, Matryona is alternately seen by critics as a symbolic depiction of the idealised Russian peasant—innocent, infinitely patient, and hardworking—or a personification of a quietly suffering Mother Russia. "An Incident at Krechetovka Station" presents the patriotic, devoutly Marxist, and steadfastly "vigilant" army lieutenant Zotov, a railroad station commander at Krechetovka. While assisting a misplaced soldier named Tveritinov, who has been separated from his unit, Zotov discovers the man does not know that the city of Tsaritsyn in now called Stalingrad, and suspects he is a German spy. Turning Tveritinov over to the secret police for questioning, Zotov later regrets his decision, realizing the soldier will likely never see his family again. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Vladimir Zvegintsev (1914, Tsarskoe Selo - 1996, Paris) was a Russian military historian and an expert on Russian army uniforms; his father was also a military writer. Many of the Zvegintsev's works were never published in the full sense of the word, but rather typed on the typewriter, corrected by hand where necessary and multiplied using offset printing. The present work is no exception. In its fragile printed wrappers and with plates unbound not many copies of this small edition survive complete and in good condition. No copies in RGB; WorldCat finds only three copies outside Russia: in Sorbonne University library, Toronto Public Library and German National library. Republished in 2008. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The story of only 338 words focuses on a young boy named Max who, after dressing in his wolf costume, wreaks such havoc through his household that he is sent to bed without his supper. Max's bedroom undergoes a mysterious transformation into a jungle environment, and he winds up sailing to an island inhabited by malicious beasts known as the "Wild Things." After successfully intimidating the creatures, Max is hailed as the king of the Wild Things and enjoys a playful romp with his subjects; however, he decides to return home, to the Wild Things' dismay. After arriving in his bedroom, Max discovers a hot supper waiting for him.The book has been adapted into other media several times, including an animated short in 1974 (with an updated version in 1988); a 1980 opera; and a live-action 2009 feature-film adaptation, directed by Spike Jonze. The book had sold over nineteen million copies worldwide as of 2009, with ten million of those being in the United States.Sendak won the annual Caldecott Medal from the children's librarians in 1964, recognizing Wild Things as the previous year's "most distinguished American picture book for children". It was voted the number one picture book in a 2012 survey of School Library Journal readers, not for the first time.Hanrahan A58.

        The Beast in the Jungle.

      Allen Press, Kentfield, California 1963 - A Psychological Novel by Henry James. One of only 15 copies with an extra suite of 16 artist's proofs each titled, numbered 9/15 and signed by the artist in a separate portfolio. 16 wood engravings by Blair Hughes-Stanton, all printed in two colours plus one illustration in grey, green, purple, red, blue, olive, blue/green and brown. Text printed in several colours in Romanà e types on Arches paper. Folio, original handmade Italian printed paper covered boards with lettering and blocks of all the seven colours used in the printing on the upper cover, spine lettered in green, in the original acetate jacket, plus matching portfolio of the same patterned Italian paper covered boards also in the original acetate jacket. Very mild chipping to the top of the portfolio spine otherwise a very good set. A total of seven colours are used for the 16 outstanding engravings by Hughes-Stanton, and these colours are also used to print the text, being inspired by the seven sections of the book each with a different emotional theme. Whilst illustrating this book Hughes-Stanton was driven by the text and the emotional problems confronting the principal characters: "I feel him blocked by squares or screens, and dominated by his shadow; she is fluid, and her shape is the egg; the Beast lurks in the eye (or ego); and in the second block the line entangles him, or sometimes holds them together; but eventually they break". This shorter story by James is one of his greatest. Clifton Fadiman wrote: "For me this is the best of James's shorter fictions, combining the utmost concentration of effect with the utmost inclusiveness of meaning". This special copy with the portfolio is astonishingly rare. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Broadside Set

      (San Francisco): (Four Seasons Foundation). (1963-1964). Three broadsides: Gary Snyder's Nanao Knows, Lew Welch's Step Out Onto the Planet, and Philip Whalen's Three Mornings. [McNeil A7.] Each reproduced by photo-offset from the author's own calligraphy and printed in an edition of 300 copies on the occasion of a reading by the three poets at Longshoreman's Hall, San Francisco, June 12, 1964. Each broadside is signed by its author. Snyder, Welch and Whalen first met when they attended Reed College, a progressive school in Oregon; the friends later became three of the most influential poets of the Beat generation. Don Carpenter, a friend of Richard Brautigan and an important figure in the Bay Area literary scene, organized the Free Way Reading with the three poets; Don Allen, another key figure in the Bay Area literary scene -- his nascent publishing company, the Four Seasons Foundation, would later publish both Snyder and Brautigan -- printed the broadsides to commemorate the reading. An important occasion, linking three key poets of their time. Welch disappeared in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains in 1971; Snyder found a suicide note at his camp, but no body was ever found and his fate remains one of the mysteries of that time. Each broadside is 9-1/2" x 12-1/2", with a mild edge crease in the left margin that would disappear with framing; near fine. A nice set. First Edition. No Binding.

      Cleveland, OH: Renegade Press, 1963. Second edition. Wraps. Very Good. Second edition. 8vo. Original stapled printed wraps. Very good with mild soil, rubbing, wear. One of 100 unnumbered copies. pp. [24]. PROVENANCE: Izzy Young's copy, with his contemporary ownership notation to verso. Young was a central figure throughout the 1960s NYC music and literary scenes. He founded the Folklore Center, produced Dylan's first concert in 1961 (Dylan even wrote a song for/about him, "Talking Folklore Center"), and was close to Sanders, helping to print several titles from from his Fuck You Press on the mimeo machine at the Center. Second printing (adding one poem - "Dis") of levy's third book, printed the same year as the original edition and self-published by his own Renegade Press. levy bought his first press, a used letterhead tabletop, in February 1963 and learned to print while working on this and two other volumes (FRAGMENTS OF A SHATTERED MIRROR and VARIATIONS ON FLIP) in the basement of his aunt and uncle's Cleveland home. Letter-pressed and issued in matching formats, these marked the beginning of a career that was arguably the most original to emerge from the mimeo revolution and his standing as poet, publisher, printer, free speech advocate, artist and cult figure have only grown in the decades since his death. Scarce. OCLC locates seven holdings of this edition (and just three of the earlier). One of the earliest and rarest works from this seminal poet and small press publisher, with exceptional provenance. [Kent and Horvath P-016].
