        A Venetian Story

      Kentfield, California: produced by Lewis & Dorothy Allen at The Allen Press, 1963. An immaculate copy. 35 illustrations from 18th Century copperplate engravings owned by Philip Hofer of the Harvard College Library plus several vignettes in the text. Large hand-coloured 'V' engraved by Mallette Dean for the opening of the Introduction. One of 150 copies. Printed in Goudy Modern & Cochin type, the latter being modelled on 18th century copperplate letters like those on the engraving reproduced in this work. Printed in violet and black on handmade paper from Rives in France on an Acorn-Smith handpress. Oblong folio, 14 x 20 inches, loose as issued in a portfolio made by the Allen Press Bindery covered in a Fortuny print of 18th century design, hand-blocked in Venice, housed in the original brown cloth box with the title in purple on the upper cover. A very dramatic edition of Byron's poem with spectacular reproductions of the 18th century copperplate engravings. In the bibliography the Allen's wrote "A real problem occurred when innocent collectors received this 14 by 20 inch volume. No doubt many of them were 'shelved' under a bed; not an appropriate place for Byron". With the prospectus inserted loose. Booklabel of Clarence B. Hanson, Jr

      1963 - (KENNEDY, Jacqueline) SHAW, Mark. Gelatin silver print. New York: Mark Shaw, 1963. Black-and-white photographic print, measuring 10-1/2 by 10-1/2 inches, handsomely window matted and framed, entire piece measures 20 by 20 inches. $6200.Vintage photographic print, taken at the White House, depicting Jackie Kennedy sitting on the floor holding John Jr. and Caroline in her lap. Bears Shaw’s own studio stamp and “Private Print” on verso.Photographed early in Kennedy’s presidency, 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 gently smiling while sitting on the floor of the White House nursery, dressed in a pale suit with her legs tucked under her, holding a laughing John Jr. in her lap and tucking Caroline against her side. “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. Pencil number on verso.A beautiful print. Beautifully matted and framed. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Handsomely matted and framed, entire piece measures 22 by 18 inches. $6800.Vintage photographic print, taken in front of the Kennedys’ Georgetown home, depicting John Kennedy lifting a toddler-age Caroline into the air while Jackie watches. Bears Shaw’s own studio stamp on verso.Photographed in 1959 while Kennedy was a senator in the last days of the campaign for President, this image was evidently printed by photographer Mark Shaw in 1963, most likely in preparation for his book, The John F.

        On Her Majesty's Secret Service (a James Bond novel)

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1963., 1963. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION, COPY NUMBER 1 of only 250 copies. IAN FLEMING'S OWN COPY. Colour frontispiece of the author by Charles Amherst Villiers. Publisher's quarter vellum over black cloth. Gilt titles to spine. In original clear plastic wrapper. A near fine copy, slightly dusty and soiled, housed in a leather-spined clamshell box. The only Signed Limited Edition of an Ian Fleming book. The first numbered copy, being one of the author's personal copies (he received the first ten). This copy differs to all others in that the limitation number is written out as 'ONE' rather that the numeral, which followed for every other example. Published in 1963, this is the second part of a collection of James Bond books that has become known as the 'Blofeld' trilogy, sitting between Thunderball (1961) and You Only Live Twice (1964). The title was filmed by Eon Productions in 1969, starring George Lazenby as 007, Diana Rigg as Tracy and Telly Savalas as Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Directed by Peter Hunt, with a terrific storyline and slick script from the ever-reliable screenwriter Richard Maibaum, O.H.M.S.S. features superb action, spectacular locations, a marvelous John Barry score, and, in Contessa Teresa de Vicenzo (aka Tracy, aka Mrs James Bond), probably the greatest Bond Girl of all time. The movie, unlike most in the series, was faithful to the original Ian Fleming novel and is a fine thriller; one of the grittiest movies of the series. Gilbert A11a.

        1963 VON RYAN'S EXPRESS DRAFT SCREENPLAY - DARRYL ZANUCK'S COPY w/ MANY NOTES & EDITS Plus 2 LETTERS from ZANUCK re: BAD SCRIPT, NEEDS MY HELP

      TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX 1963. TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX : , 1963. VON RYAN'S EXPRESS - FIRST DRAFT SCREENPLAY - DARRYL ZANUCK'S PERSONAL COPY with HIS NOTES and EDITS THROUGHOUT, plus TWO LONG, RELEVANT LETTERS from DARRYL ZANUCK to his son RICHARD ZANUCK regarding his many concerns about the SCRIPT. Darryl Zanuck's large initials are on the front cover. Bound in blue paper covers with the Twentieth Century Fox Film logo and name at the bottom of the front cover, and with "Von Ryan's Express", "July 18, 1963", and "First Draft Screenplay", all printed on the front cover. The spine covering is split and tattered, but the printed: "Von Ryan's Express - July 18, 1963" is still legible. The title page has the printed information: "Von Ryan's Express / Screenplay by David Westheimer and Saul David / Based on the Novel by David Westheimer / First Draft Screenplay / July 18, 1963". Printed on light-green tinted paper, with many blue revision pages dated 7/23/63, 7/24/63 and 7/31/63. Zanuck's edit marks and notes are found here and there on both the light-green pages and on the blue revision pages. 172 pages, plus a few additional revision pages (e.g. "141" followed by "141A"). Pages are printed on 8.5x11" paper, printed on one side only. The covers are somewhat larger, overhanging the inner pages by 1/2" at the front edge and 1/4" at the top and bottom edges. The screenplay is three hole punched and bound with three brass brads. Darryl Zanuck was head of Twentieth Century Fox, the studio producing Von Ryan's Express. ZANUCK HATED THE SCRIPT as it stood in this first draft. His numerous notes on the inside front cover, title page, and first page of the screenplay are full of comments such as: "Basic plot was exciting, original - but it is now told devoid of characters or logic or humor..." Zanuck also made various notes, marks, suggestions and edits here and there throughout the rest of the script, but his most extensive comments are on the first few pages. This FIRST DRAFT has RYAN staying alive at the end of the film. In the final version RYAN DIES. There are MANY other changes between this draft and the final version. Neither of the writers of this first draft are listed as writers on the final script, though David Westheimer is still credited for writing the novel. PLEASE NOTE: ALSO INCLUDED ARE TWO LONG, IMPORTANT, RELATED LETTERS BY DARRYL ZANUCK (Head of Twentieth-Century Fox Corporation) TO HIS SON, RICHARD ZANUCK (who he made head of film production). The letters are both carbon copies (presumably Zanuck's copies) on onion skin paper, typed by his Secretary. The letters are dated August 13 and August 23, 1963. These carbon copies of the sent letters are not signed. In the first letter, Darryl Zanuck is VERY upset about the quality of the screenplay; and by default he is upset with his son, the Studio's head of Production, for allowing the screenplay to be so bad. The letter is 7 pages long. "What started like a marvellous and original adventure has become in screenplay an amateurish delivery of hokum melodrama with obvious characters and embarrassing attempts at humor." "I have detailed notes on an entirely new opening and on innumerable changes..." In the second letter, dated August 23, D. Zanuck details the changes that he thinks will improve the film. The letter is 14 pages long. CONDITION: The SCREENPLAY covers are tattered along the edges where they overhang the inner pages, tattered at the spine, have some creases, are toned, and have a coffee cup ring stain (probably Zanuck's cup!). The inner pages are all in VERY GOOD condition, some corner creases, some edge toning, overall still bright and clean. THE TYPED CARBON LETTERS have some stiff creases, toning to the margins, paper clip marks, and signs of general handling, but are still bright and clear. Together, this first draft screenplay and associated letters show the Zanucks, father and son, at loggerheads. Was this the beginning of what ended with Richard Zanuck taking over the studio and kicking his father out in 1969? Good

        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).

      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. In 1958 Eugene Smith was named one of “the world’s ten greatest photographers”â€"together with Cartier-Bresson, Avedon, Ansel Adams and others.Plates fine, light occasional underlining to text; one bit of tape reinforcement to bright original dust jacket.

Using a pallet of bright primary colors in his composition, Lichtenstein developed the, now famous, technique of stenciled dotted lines that mimicked and amplified commercial printing patterns.
