        Paris Mortel (First Edition with Dust Jacket)

      The Netherlands: Hilversum, 1963. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. This is a first edition, first printing of Joan Van der Keuken\'s critically acclaimed photobook \"Paris Mortel (Mortal Paris)\" published by Hilversum, The Netherlands in 1963. Although he is best known as a filmmaker, Joan Van der Keuken started his career as a still photographer and produced 3 incredible photobooks, Wij zijn 17 (1955) and Achter Glas (1957), and Paris Mortel (1963). In 1956, Joan Van der Keuken moved to Paris to study at the School of Film. During the period of 1956 to 1958, he took thousand of photographs that eventually formed the basis for \"Paris Mortel\". In their photobook reference work, \"The Photobook: A History\", Parr & Badger wrote, \"Van der Keuken was concerned with burying the myth of romantic, timeless Paris . it concentrates on Paris as a complex web of socio-political relationships. \"Paris Mortel\" sees Paris not as a monument or artificial film-set, but as a working, and working-class city. \"Paris Mortel\" can be added to the long list of classic photobooks made about the French capital.\" Containing 65 photographs printed in gravure on French-fold leaves and measuring approximately 11 x 8.5 inches, the book is bound in grey linen covered boards with a blue cloth-effect dust jacket. The condition of the book is FINE and the dust jacket is Near FINE+ with some tiny flaws: small area of residue from bookseller\'s sticker front paste down; jacket reinforced internally at crown of spine (less than 1/4\") and at upper corners of fore-edges (1/8\"); slightest trace of fading at spine. Overall, this is an exceptional copy of one of the most sought after photobooks ever produced that is rarely found in such wonderful condition. Cited in The Photobook: A History by Parr and Badger.

      Russell & Russell, 1963. First Thus. Hard Cover. Fine/No Jacket. First thus. No jackets. An exceptional set. 1963 Hard Cover. Complete in seven volumes. 396; 276; 425; 547; 503; 420; 279 pp. 8vo. Original green cloth, gilt titles. Issued in a limited edition of four hundred sets. This edition comprises the full contents of the six-volume 1866 Narragansett Edition in facsimile, with new material collected and presented separately in a seventh volume. A publisher's note stated that this was done "to retain the original pagination of the first six volumes and thereby maintain the integrity of the voluminous references to the Narragansett Edition in the literature about Roger Williams. Roger Williams was a religious activist who campaigned for religious freedom, and founded the first Baptist church in America. He believed strongly in the separation of church and state, and also founded the Providence Plantation, which provided a safe haven for victims of religious persecution. He is often credited as America's first abolitionist as well, in that he was the first colonist to organize an attempt to prohibit the practice of slavery. His strong beliefs often put him at odds with other believers: he was banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony after speaking against the methods of government numerous times, and he and John Cotton engaged in a lengthy debate in print over various religious issues. "His surviving papers and polemical works have been published among several different primary works: The Publications of the Narragansett Club (6 vols., 1866-1874), reprinted with an additional volume as The Complete Writings of Roger Williams (7 vols., 1963)... More books have been written about Williams than about any other American colonial figure born before Benjamin Franklin." (American National Biography, Glenn W. LaFantasie). Includes: I. Biographical Introduction; Key into the Language of America; Letter of Mr. John Cotton; Mr. Cotton's Letter Examined and Answered. II. John Cotton's Answer to Roger Williams: Queries of Highest Consideration; III. Bloudy Tenent of Persecution; IV. The Bloody Tenent Yet More Bloody; V. George Fox Digg'd out of His Burrowes; VI.

        Cancellation cover Commemorating the World Chess Championship rematch of 1963

      One sheet cover with cancelled stamp and decorative chess board in black on beige paper. Commemorative cancel to stamp. Signed by both players, Tigran Petrosian in red ink and Mikhail Botvinnik in blue ink, dated by Botvinnik 22 May 1963. Stamped in Moscow.Event covers are decorated, stamped and canceled commemorative envelopes. They are created to celebrate an event or note an anniversary. The design (called a "cachet") is generally placed on the left side of the envelope (although there are also "all over" cachets). It explains what is being commemorated on what date, and some times includes an illustration page. Ideally, the stamps used relate to the celebration. Cancels are either obtained in the city of the event. If a special cancellation (one with a design) has been created for the event, you can generally only receive that cancel from the local post office.Tigran Petrosian (Armenian: ?????? ????????? Tigran Petrosyan; Russian: ?????? ?'????????? ???????? Tigran Vartanovich Petrosyan; June 17, 1929 ?" August 13, 1984) was a Soviet Armenian grandmaster, and World Chess Champion from 1963 to 1969. He was nicknamed "Iron Tigran" due to his almost impenetrable defensive playing style, which emphasized safety above all else. Petrosian was a Candidate for the World Championship on eight occasions (1953, 1956, 1959, 1962, 1971, 1974, 1977 and 1980). He won the world championship in 1963 (against Mikhail Botvinnik), successfully defended it in 1966 (against Boris Spassky), and lost it in 1969 (to Spassky). Thus he was the defending World Champion or a World Championship candidate in ten consecutive three-year cycles. He won the Soviet Championship four times (1959, 1961, 1969, and 1975). Petrosian was recognized as the hardest player to beat in the history of chess by the authors of a 2004 bookMikhail Moiseyevich Botvinnik, PhD (Russian: ??????? ?????????? ?'?????????, August 17 [O.S. August 4] 1911 ?" May 5, 1995) was a Soviet and Russian International Grandmaster and three-time World Chess Champion. Working as an electrical engineer and computer scientist at the same time, he was one of the very few famous chess players who achieved distinction in another career while playing top-class competitive chess. He was also a pioneer of computer chess. Botvinnik was the first world-class player to develop within the Soviet Union (Alekhine was a top player before the Russian Revolution), putting him under political pressure but also giving him considerable influence within Soviet chess. From time to time he was accused of using that influence to his own advantage, but the evidence is unclear and some suggest he resisted attempts by Soviet officials to intimidate some of his rivals. Botvinnik also played a major role in the organization of chess, making a significant contribution to the design of the World Chess Championship system after World War II and becoming a leading member of the coaching system that enabled the Soviet Union to dominate top-class chess during that time. His famous pupils include World Champions Anatoly Karpov, Garry Kasparov and Vladimir Kramnik.At the World Chess Championship 1963 Tigran Petrosian narrowly qualified to challenge Mikhail Botvinnik for the World Chess Championship, and then won the match to become the ninth World Chess Champion. The cycle is particularly remembered for the controversy surrounding the Candidates' Tournament at Curaçao in 1962, which resulted in FIDE changing the format of the Candidates Tournament to a series of knockout matches.Condition:Some edge wear with the top opening being slit in very good condition.

        The Feminine Mystique

      New York: W. W. Norton, 1963. First edition of the author's classic work. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Betty Friedan on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. First editions are rare, especially signed. The Feminine Mystique begins with an introduction describing what Friedan called "the problem that has no name"—the widespread unhappiness of women in the 1950s and early 1960s. It discusses the lives of several housewives from around the United States who were unhappy despite living in material comfort and being happily married with fine children. "[The Feminine Mystique] now feels both revolutionary and utterly contemporary. Four decades later, millions of individual transformations later, there is still so much to learn from this book. Those who think of it as solely a feminist manifesto ought to revisit its pages to get a sense of the magnitude of the research and reporting Friedan undertook" (Anna Quindlen).

        A set of all four Beatles signatures obtained in England in July 1963

      Beatles Signatures, "love Paul McCartney XXX,""Ringo Starr XXX,""love from John Lennon XXX,""love from George Harrison XXX,"1p., 8" x 10", [July 1963], [Margate, England]. Waterstained but completely legible with light marginal wear. Good-plus condition.The signatures were obtained by a fan in July 1963 during a six day series of concerts at the Winter Gardens in Margate, England. Unfortunately for the devoted fan, the sheet had a run-in with water, which has blurred some of the signatures. Despite its flaws, the lovingly typewritten titles, with other handwritten embellishments, make for a wonderful memento from the Beatles' early days before they "went big" in America the following year. Includes Roger Epperson Certificate of Authenticity.

        V

      Philadelphia, PA & New York, NY: J. B. Lippincott Company, 1963. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Fine/Near Fine. ...V. is indescribably original. In a madcap, sometimes sad, frequently hilarious way, it captures the ruthlessness and multiplicity of the modern world. Incident piles on incident until, in what amounts almost to a revelation, the pattern of the book and the century it describes emerge with a terrible beauty."(from rear flap) A first edition of Thomas Pynchon&#39;s debut novel, in first issue dust jacket with list of chapter numbers & headings. Still being parsed & analyzed, this is a dense, surreal dream-narrative that launched the Pynchon legend & is a landmark of twentieth-century American literature. As Mark Hayden writes, "fans regularly proclaim Pynchon as the father and most intricate designer of postmodern hip lit. There&#39;s something to this. The writer name-checks and digresses more than any writer since Kerouac, with his wanderlust ramblings. Pynchon proves more verbose than Vonnegut or Salinger too. I mention these specific writers because their themes turn up in V., as protagonist Benny Profane searches, like Sal Paradise or Holden Caulfield, for place and identity."(from a review in pastemagazine.com) We are proud to offer this most important literary collectible in exceptionally fine condition among those available. Book in very fine condition with only sunning to edges of light purple cloth, very mild soiling to bottom edge, a few very tiny gauges to black-colored top edge, interior mint except for mild rubbing at upper right corner of first page after front endpaper, not effecting inverse pyramid of "V"s. Dust Jacket with only minor rubbing & soiling, esp. to light background of rear cover, moderate chipping & creases to upper & lower edges, spine has appx. 1/8" missing at top.
