        The Four-Dimensional Nightmare - in the brown binding

      Gollancz, 1963. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good. A first edition, first printing published by Gollancz in 1963. Bound in brown boards - as with Le Carre's 'The Spy Who Came in from the Cold' of the same year - this was perhaps a trial binding used by Gollancz for advance copies. This is the first we have seen. A near fine book with small spotting to the top edge - pages are fresh and clean and there are no inscriptions. In a very good+ unclipped wrapper with small v-shape chips to the corners. With 'X24' on the rear panel. A rare item for any Ballard collector.

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

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1963. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION, 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 fine copy, with one chip to the crown of the jacket. The only Signed Limited Edition of an Ian Fleming book. A FINE ASSOCIATION COPY, being one of the author's personal copies (he received the first ten), and then presented to his close friend Amherst Villiers, the illustrator of this volume. Villiers ended up with three copies of this edition- this copy, and an out of series copy both given to him by Fleming, plus a later numbered copy which he personally ordered from the publisher. We have purchased all three copies from the family over the years. This particular example was then givel by Amherst to his son Charles Churchill Villiers (and as such does not have the Villiers bookplate the other two possess). It does however benefit from a loose autograph note from Amherst 'I gave this book to Charlie... I have another copy. Pa' Sold with a copy of the original sales invoice, signed by Villiers. Amherst Villiers had two children, the late Janie Villiers and Charles Churchill Villiers, godson of Sir Winston Churchill. Both made the acquaintance of Fleming bibliographer Jon Gilbert of Adrian Harrington Ltd., who interviewed them whilst researching the book. The Villiers family home was just a short walk from Harrington's bookshop in Kensington. 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.

        A Collection of Original Press Releases for the March On Washington for Jobs and Freedom, 1963

      Various 1963 - A collection of 20 original press releases issued for the landmark August 28, 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, all gathered by a journalist who attended the event. The advanced text of the remarks of all of the important speakers are represented here, and according to one informed source, this represents all press releases that were issued at the March. It should be noted that the advance text of the speech of Dr. King does not include the "I Have a Dream" segment, which was delivered extemporaneously. According to most accounts, singer Mahalia Jackson was sitting behind King during his speech, and in a low voice encouraged King to "tell them about your dream." All but one of the releases were printed by mimeographed or ditto processes and would have been issued in relatively few numbers. While it is unknown how many were produced, several people involved with the March have suggested that no more than 200 copies of each release was prepared, and almost certainly most of these were discarded. All of the press releases are in fine condition (the two very minor exceptions noted in the itemized list below). Presumably, at this late date, it would be nearly impossible to accumulate a complete set of these press releases from perhaps the most important day in Civil Rights History. 1. *[Map]: Aug. 28 March Area Details*. 8.5" x 11".

        Mastering the Art of French Cooking

      Alfred A. Knopf, NY, 1963. 1st edition. Hardcover. Very Good/NDJ. "This is a book for the servantless American cook who can be unconcerned on occasion with budgets, waistlines, time schedules, children's meals, the parent-chauffeur... syndrome, or anything else which might interfere with the enjoyment of producing something wonderful to eat. [T]he recipes are as detailed as we have felt they should be so the reader will know exactly what is involved and how to go about it. This makes them a bit longer than usual, and some of the recipes are quite long indeed. No out-of-the-ordinary ingredients are called for...the excellence of French cooking, and of good cooking in general, is due more to cooking technique that to anything else. And these techniques can be applied wherever good basic materials are available." [Foreword] First book by Julia Child. Faded spine but still legible. Small slice on front cover. Very minor wear to extremities and spine. Pages in Fine, clean condition. 1ST EDITION, 4TH PRINTING.

      London: Constable Young Books, 1963. First British Edition. First Impression. Octavo; red paper-covered boards, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; dustjacket; 182pp. Thin strip of offset to endpapers, else Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced 13s 6d net), gently spine-sunned, with a 1cm closed tear to upper edge of rear panel; very Near Fine. Lovely copy of L'Engle's beloved children's classic, winner of the 1962 Newberry Medal, and counted among the most coveted children's books to win that award. The wraparound dustjacket art by Anthony Maitland notably different than that of the American edition, showing the three principal characters, Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin tessering with Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which, and Mrs. Whatsit. Though the Constable edition follows the American by one year, it is, in our experience, every bit as scarce.

        Gesammelte Werke (Husserliana). Auf Grund des Nachlasses veröffentlicht vom Husserl-Archiv (Louvain) unter Leitung von H. L. von Breda.

      Den Haag und Dordrecht, Martinus Nijhoff und Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1963-99.. Bde. I-XIX, XXI-XXX und Dokumente II und IV (in zusammen 34 Bänden). 8vo. Originale blaue Verlagsleinen mit goldgeprägten Rücken und Vorderdeckeln. (St.a.Vorsätzen, sonst sauber und beinahe neuwertig!).. Der Philosoph und Mathematiker Husserl (1859-1938) zählt zu den prägendsten Theoretikern des 20. Jahrhunderts, mit größtem Einfluß auf die Philosophie (Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre) und die Soziologie (Alfred Schütz). Mit seiner "Phänomenologie" wollte strebte er an, die Philosophie als strenge Wissenschaft zu begründen, die sich in der analytischen Betrachtung der Dinge an das hält, was sich dem Bewußtsein unmittelbar (phänomenal) erschließt. Seine spätere Verbindung von Phänomenologie und Transzendentalphilosophie wurde nicht von allen seinen Schülern gutgeheißen. Die Bedeutsamkeit Husserls und seine außerordentliche Produktivität - sein Nachlass umfasst ca. 40.000 Seiten - veranlasste seit 1950 das Projekt der "Husserliana", in dem der Nachlass gesichtet, aufbereitet und im Rahmen der "Gesammelten Werke" herausgegeben wird.

        Printed and Typed Document Signed, 4to, New York, December 12, 1962

      Our Document is a signed copy of the "Assignment of Copyright," indicating that "Thelonius S. Monk does hereby transfer, set over and assign unto Village Music Corp. Executive's Capital Planning...all of its right, title and interest in and to the musical composition titled, 'MONK'S DREAM'...." Crossed out with typed x's are, "words and." The text continues, "music by THELONIUS MONK...." The document s signed in red ink, "T. Monk," as well as by "Evelyn Sue Taylor. E.C.P." The final typed line indicates the, "original entry filed under Riverside Publishing." A blind embossed stamp in the lower right corner reads, "Executive Capital Planning," and left a slight punch hole tear to the side of the stamp. "Monk's Dream" is the first album Monk released on Columbia Records in 1963 and recorded Oct. 31, Nov. 1, 2 & 6, 1962. Widely considered one of the foremost jazz musicians, Monk had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire, including his classic works "Round Midnight" and "Blue Monk." He is often regarded as a founder of bebop. In 1952, Monk signed a recording contract with Prestige Records and recorded "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" as well as "Bags' Groove" with Miles Davis in 1954. Prestige sold his contract to Riverside Records in 1955, where Monk tried to expand the appeal of his first two recordings. Although this effort was poorly received by critics, his 1956 album, "Brilliant Corners," garnered wide acclaim. The following year, the Thelonious Monk Quartet, which included John Coltrane, began performing regularly at the Five Spot in New York, enjoying great success. Monk's appeal had finally broadened so widely that Columbia Records offered him a contract in 1962. Village Music, referenced here, was owned by Sid Prosen, who was a producer, agent, and music promoter. Our document refers to Monk's agreement to record with Columbia and ultimately to his musical significance.

Octavo; publisher's cream self-wrappers, printed in black and red; 10 pp. insert on pale orange paper regarding the judging and presentation of El Premio Biblioteca Breve, [1] fold-out map, 343pp, [6]. Spine lightly sunned, foxing to upper edge of text, with a few chips to yapped edges, and a 1.75 inch closed tear along upper rear hinge; still Very Good+ withal, and clean throughout. The photo-illustrated dustjacket measures 3/8 inch taller than the book, resulting in some tears and associated creasing, and two shallow chips to upper and lower left corners at spine ends; some light, scattered soil and wear along edges to note otherwise - a presentable, Very Good+ example. The Nobel Prize-winner's first novel, based very loosely on events in the author's teenage years. The story is set in a boys' military academy in Lima, Peru, similar to an academy Vargas Llosa attended. Due to the incendiary portrayal of certain authoritarian figures, as well as frank portrayals of homosexuality and an act of bestiality, the novel was banned in Peru, and copies of the book were burned in protest at the academy that served as the model for the fictional setting. Basis for a 1985 film adaptation directed by Francisco Lombardi, and quite scarce in any sort of presentable dustjacket.

        Historia romana] [pars prima]

      - In 4to grande (cm 28); bella legatura del XVIII secolo in marocchino rosso, piatti con elaborate decorazioni floreali impresse in oro, dorso a sei nervi con fregi e titolo in oro, risguardi in carta marmorizzata, titolo manoscritto sul taglio laterale; cc. (132, di cui la 1 bianca). Carattere romano. 32-33 linee. Alla carta a2 il testo è incorniciato dalla prima bordura ornamentale su fondo nero ad apparire in un testo a stampa (cfr. A.M. Hind, An Introduction to a History of Woodcut, New York, 1963, II, p. 458 e sgg.). Inoltre con sei grandi iniziali xilografiche ornate, sempre su fondo nero. Numerose annotazioni marginali coeve. Piccoli fori tondi di tarlo all'inizio e alla fine del volume, qualche lieve arrossatura, ma bellissima copia di grande freschezza e a pieni margini.EDITIO PRINCEPS della Historia Romana dello storico alessandrino Appiano nella traduzione latina dell'umanista pavese Pier Candido Decembrio. Un secondo volume, contenente il De bellis civilibus Romanorum, fu stampato da Ratdolt nello stesso anno, ma i due volumi si trovano spesso separati. Il De bellis civilibus Romanorum, sempre nella versione del Decembrio, era già  apparso nel 1472 preso i torchi di Vindelino da Spira.La Storia Romana, conclusa intorno al 160 d.C., abbandona l'ordinamento annalistico della materia in favore di un resoconto basato sulle storie locali dei vari popoli e paesi che componevano l'impero, a partire dalla loro sottomissione e incorporazione nell'impero stesso. Dei ventiquattro libri di cui era composta, ne sono rimasti integri solamente dieci (dal VI all'VIII e dal XI al XVII). La storia di Roma dalle origini alla morte dell'imperatore Traiano è quindi narrata attraverso vari capitoli monografici: età  regia, storia italica, storia sannitica, storia celtica, storia siciliana ed isolana, storia iberica, storia annibalica, storia libica, storia macedonica ed illirica, storia ellenica e ionica, storia mitridatica, guerre civili (libri XIII-XVII), storia egizia, conquiste degli imperatori fino a Traiano, storia dacica, storia arabica. La parte più significativa dell'opera e di maggior successo editoriale è quella che descrive le guerre civili.Appiano visse tra Alessandria e Roma durante i regni di Traiano, Adriano e Antonino Pio. Fu avvocato ed ottenne la carica di procuratore nella provincia d'Egitto.Nato a Pavia, figlio del vigevanese Uberto Decembrio che fu uno dei primi umanisti lombardi, P.C. Decembrio seguì le orme paterne, formandosi nelle belle lettere e nelle arti liberali. Nel 1419 fu chiamato da Filippo Maria Visconti alla corte milanese in qualità  di segretario. Dopo la morte di quest'ultimo (1447), Decembrio parteggiò per la Repubblica Ambrosiana, che lo inviò ambasciatore in Francia per chiedere soccorso contro Francesco I Sforza, che stava per sottometterla: egli stesso fu poi incaricato di consegnare al nuovo padrone le chiavi della città . In seguito all'insediamento del nuovo regime, nel 1450 esulò a Roma, dove papa Niccolò V lo nominò segretario apostolico; ruolo che svolse anche sotto il suo successore, Callisto III. Ebbe poi simile incarico dal re di Napoli, Alfonso d'Aragona. Nel 1459, riconciliatosi con il duca Francesco, tornò a Milano. Tra il 1466 e il 1474 fu a Ferrara allo corte di Borso d'Este. Rientrato definitivamente a Milano, una malattia improvvisa pose termine alla sua vita il 12 novembre 1477. Fu tumulato in un fastoso sepolcro nella basilica di Sant'Ambrogio.La straordinaria produzione del Decembrio (gli sono attribuite centoventisette opere) si divide essenzialmente tra le traduzioni e le opere storiche. Tradusse dal greco in latino parte dell'Iliade, la Ciropedia di Senofonte, alcune Vite di Plutarco, le Storie di Appiano, la Repubblica di Platone; dal latino in italiano i Commentari di Giulio Cesare, la Storia di Curzio Rufo, la prima decade di Tito Livio. Scrisse un Compendio di Storia Romana, un riassunto delle Vite di Plutarco, la Peregrina Istoria sulle magistrature romane e, soprattut [Attributes: 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", and mildly sunned as though previously framed; near fine. A nice set. First Edition. No Binding.

        Large collection of correspondence from Moore consisting of twenty-four ALSs and three postcards, all written to Professor Edward Galligan of Western Michigan University

      various, various. various. "The letters vary in length on several examples of Moore?s personal and professional letterhead, with the letters dating from the early-to-mid 1960s. One letter, dated March 29, 1963, just after his final bout, reads, in part: ?Being anti-this and anti-that is just as bad as being pro-this or pro-that?"unless there is a truthful reason. I enjoyed the article very much on the ?Scientific Racism? by Mr. Simmons. Perhaps Mr. Putnam is like a politician we have for a, an opportunist named Brown who leaves a taste of the same color when he utters statements like abolishing boxing or sometimes other things in order to start controversial matters without the benefit of research. Who incidentally reminds me of a fable by my favorite philosopher (x) Aesop...With all the crap regarding genes, scientific racism, scientific religion, America is headed for the rude awakening that the infectious cancerous thing called communism is being presented as bait to the supposedly inferior people, whose chief hope and desire is to become 1st class citizens and help build America in to a place worthy to be looked up to as the land of the free and home of the brave. Few great men have not read or heard of Aesop. Could Jefferson possibly have read of him.? Also included are two photocopied poems by Moore, who has inscribed one. In overall fine condition."
