        I differenti. Capri 1963, Il disprezzo: Moravia, Godard, Bardot e gli altri

      Skira 2013 1963. Jean-Luc Godard cerca una vicenda umana che racconti le debolezze di persone con "sentimenti classici e fuori moda", come lui stesso scrive nei "Cahiers du Cinéma". Per questo sceglie un romanzo di Alberto Moravia, Il disprezzo, uscito pochi anni prima, e decide, per la prima volta nella sua giovane carriera, di utilizzare un cast stellare, con attori come Brigitte Bardot, Michel Piccoli, Jack Palance e il regista Fritz Lang nella parte di se stesso, in un set altrettanto spettacolare come Capri e la sua Villa Malaparte. Questi ingredienti bastarono per fare un film importante. In Francia, perché in Italia, temendo le reazioni del pubblico nei confronti di un'opera troppo cerebrale, il produttore decise di tagliare molte scene. E così, su un film di un'ora e quaranta minuti, il pubblico italiano ne perse venti. Dopo cinquant'anni, questo libro rievoca quella storia. Pubblicato (in collaborazione con Ferrarelle) in occasione della giornata inaugurale dell'edizione 2013 del Premio Malaparte, questo volume celebra il cinquantesimo anniversario di "Le Mépris" di Jean-Luc Godard, il film tratto dal romanzo Il disprezzo di Alberto Moravia, vissuto a Capri dal 1941 al 1943, dove animò un cenacolo culturale frequentato dall'élite degli intellettuali dell'epoca. Un'occasione per ricordarli entrambi e rievocare insieme un percorso di intrecci tra letteratura, musica e arte visiva. Brossura, volume in Italiano.

        The Lord of the Rings - Original 1963 UK Deluxe Set, in Original Pauline Baynes Triptych Slipcase, Signed By the Author

      London: Allen & Unwin, 1963. 1st Edition, Hobbits, Lord of the Rings. Original Cloth. Very Good Plus/No Jacket, as Issued. J.R.R. Tolkien. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien, published by George Allen & Unwin in 1963. The true 1st Deluxe Edition of the 3 volumes of the Lord of the Rings, comprised of "The Fellowship of the Ring", "The Two Towers", and "The Return of the King". The Fellowship of the Ring is signed by the author, J.R.R. Tolkien, to the title page. A wonderful provenance on this signature, as it comes with a note signed by Merlin Unwin, the son of Rayner Unwin. It states that The Fellowship, "belonged to my father Rayner Unwin (Tolkien's editor and publisher) and was kept in his personal library at our family home in Little Missenden, Buckinghamshire. After his death in 2000 it remained there until the death of his widow, Carol, in 2012. Merlin Unwin". The young lad whose book report was instrumental in the publishing of the Hobbit, kept this signed copy for many years. Has the initials A.R.R. to the back of the free endpaper. It has been added to this partial set, which had the original slipcase and the other two books, to complete this lovely set. I know of only one other signed set of this Deluxe Edition, which was given to Pauline Baynes, and recently sold for an extremely high price at auction. This set is bound in the original Black Buckram cloth with gilt titles, author and publisher to the spines of each volume. Each volume features Bevel-Edged boards, gilded page edges, and the original silk bookmark sewn in. The books are in Very Good Plus condition showing some light rubbing and marks to the covers, with almost no marks or rubbing to the gilded edges, Initials to the back free endpaper, with no other writing or inscriptions in any of the books, except for the authors signature. The textblocks are clean and unmarked, with a very tight binding. The original maps are all present, and have no tears or misfolds, nor any browning to the folds as often happens. The spine of the Two Towers is only slightly lighter in color, less so than the common flaw with this edition. Seems to only occur with the Two Towers, and rarely the other two books. The books are housed in the very scarce original publishers slipcase featuring the Pauline Baynes color "Triptych" artwork. This case has some minor splits starting to the entry corners, but very little rubbing to the back corners, and no bumped corners as is often found. Clean and bright, one of the nicest I've run across in many years. The scarcest of all the original Allen & Unwin 1st Editions, as well as the Houghton Mifflin issues, with the signed copy added, makes a marvelous set for the Tolkien enthusiast. According to publishers records, 1000 or less sets produced. Briefly mentioned in the Tolkien bibliography by Hammond and Anderson on page 98. The outside of the slipcase show some superficial rubbing, one small scuff to the back side edge, but whole & complete, without any major stains or faults. A rare opportunity for this scarce signed set with it's original Pauline Baynes illustrated slipcase. Digital images available upon request. Other Tolkien sets, original and rebound are available. Inquire if interested. A wonderful addition to anyone's Tolkien collection. Very Good Plus / No Jacket, as Issued.

        Pasajes de la guerra revolucionaria. 1st edition.

      126 (1) pp. 8°. Original cased boards. The state of condition is poor: front cover loose, rear cover nearly loose; rubbed and bumped; rear cover waterstained. On half-title with handwritten two-line dedication of the author to Rob Taber and handwritten signature "Che", dated New York 13/12/64. Che Guevara had been the head of the Cuban delegation, that visited the UNO in New York in december 1964, where and when he met Rob Taber; on 12/11 he held a most remarkable speech, encouraging the states of the "Third World" to unite their voices; the speech can be called the hour of birth of the selfconfidence of the "block-free" states. Robert Taber was "one of the two CBS newsmen who went into Oriente Province to give the lie to Batista's claim that Fidel Castro was dead. At great personal peril they smuggeled television equipment into the mountains, and Taber's documentary interview with Castro and the rebels is now history. (...) Taber lived with them. He was treated as one of them. He suffered their ordeals and he risked their perils. (...) During the abortive CIA-sponsered "invasion" of Cuba by anti-Castro groups in April, 1961, Taber was again with the rebel Army, and again in the midst of the shooting (he was wounded by a machine gun) and again the only American reporter to be on the scene." (text on the slaps of: R. Taber: M-26. The Biography of a Revolution. New York 1961.) A copy of Taber's "M-26" is added; verso flying endpaper with nine-line handwritten dedication and signature of the author: "For Charles Ledger, marking three decades of a friendship that began in London with the publication of this book, my first, in 1961, when he was my kind host and first reader." Please ask for photographs.

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED

      New York, NY 1963 - Typed letter signed on Hoover's personal letterhead dated January, 11, 1963. "I have no present recollection of Stanford-California games prior to the one described in the Memoirs. There may have been such games. In my freshman year I was manager of the football team. Yours faithfully, Herbert Hoover." Letter has been signed by Hoover in black ink. Fine Condition Herbert Clark Hoover was the 31st American president, serving from 1929-33. Hoover was a successful mining engineer and businessman in Australia and China before turning to civic service and politics. During and after World War I he was head of the U.S. Food Administration and the American Relief Administration, and was widely credited with helping prevent starvation in war-torn Europe. A Republican, he then served as Secretary of Commerce under both presidents Warren Harding and Calvin Coolidge. Herbert Hoover defeated Democrat Alfred E. Smith in the presidential election of 1928 and took office in 1929. The stock market crash that year, and the ensuing Great Depression, overwhelmed Hoover's presidency. In spite of a wide variety of successful reforms, Hoover was held accountable for the dire economic situation and was badly defeated in his bid for a second term by Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt.

INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front free endpaper: "To my friend/Rachel Ward/With Best wishes/and warm Personal Regards/Martin." Rachel Ward is mentioned by Dexter Scott King, son of Martin Luther King, Jr., in his book GROWING UP KING: AN INTIMATE MEMOIR when he describes his home life in 1967: "The kitchen is beyond the dining room. There my mother or the ladies who helped her, Mrs. Dorothy Lockhart or Mrs. Newman or sometimes Mrs. Rachel Ward, caused a racket of pots and pans. Mrs. Ward and Mrs. Patricia Cook Latimore sometimes looked after us when Mom and Dad had to do important business." Dexter was seven years old when his father was killed in 1968. Genuinely signed books by King are hard to come by; those with such a fine association as this are rarely encountered.

        Book of the Hopi

      Viking|~| NY: Viking. (1963). The uncorrected proof copy of this landmark volume relating the worldview of the Hopis, as compiled by Waters from the tales of thirty Hopi elders. A matter of some controversy after the fact -- some people have questioned the authenticity of the material or the qualifications of those who provided it -- this book nonetheless was profoundly influential in the Sixties, as one of the seminal volumes bringing some version of a Native American perspective and ethos to the mainstream society. This was a counterculture classic and a staple on college campuses in the late Sixties and early Seventies, thus contributing to the general push toward a more multicultural society, as well as contributing to the increasing consciousness of environmental issues, as the Hopi are depicted as living in closer harmony with the land and the natural world than was the case in mainstream American society. A bit of corner creasing and dust soiling to covers; near fine in ringbound cardstock covers. A scarce proof. . First Edition. Softcover.
