        BASIL SEAL RIDES AGAIN or The Rake's Regress

      Chapman & Hall 1963 - First edition, signed limited edition. One of 750 copies, this copy out of series. Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the limitation leaf to Graham Greene, "For Graham with love to Unamuno, Fidel etc. from Evelyn". Original blue buckram, spine lettered in gilt, pictorial decoration to upper board gilt, in the original undersized acetate dustwrapper. Printed on mould made paper, top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine copy with slight toning to the spine. With a colour frontispiece by Kathleen Hale. An exceptional association copy between two of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. Waugh and Greene were contemporaries at Oxford though not friends at the time. They became acquainted around 1937 when Greene was editor of Night and Day and Waugh a contributor. Although of differing social and political outlooks, they became ardent admirers of one another's work. Of The Heart of The Matter, Waugh, normally a waspish reviewer wrote, ".of Mr Graham Greene alone among contemporary writers one can say without affectation that his breaking silence with a new serious novel is a literary event. [He] is a story-teller of genius." Both were late converts to Catholicism and both viewed their faith from different standpoints. Eventually mutual admiration grew to mutual affection. Greene wrote, shortly after Waugh's death in 1966, "But those who have built Evelyn up as a sort of sacred monster have left out the other side: they have ignored the man who have up from work which was essential to him to stay with the dying and no longer amusing Ronald Knox in the kind of hotel and the kind of resort he hated, who attended the deathbed of his friend Alfred Duggan and against all obstacles brought him the help he needed. When I come to die, I shall wish he [Waugh] were beside me, for he would give me no easy comfort. Our politics were a hundred miles apart and he regarded my Catholicism as heretical. What indeed had made us friends? He wrote to me in October 1952, 'I am just completing my forty-ninth year. You are just beginning yours. It is the grand climacteric which sets the course of the rest of one's life, I am told. It has been a year of lost friends for me. Not by death but by wear and tear. Our friendship started rather late. Pray God it lasts.' It did." (The Ways of Escape) The inscription refers to Greene's impending visit to Cuba. Greene had travelled to Cuba to research Our Man in Havana in 1957 and met Castro. Miguel de Unamuno, the Spanish novelist and philosopher, was a literary hero of Greene's and he particularly admired his interpretation of Don Quixote (which in part inspired Greene's own Monsignor Quixote).

        Malcolm X: White vs. Black, Jesus and Moses; his copy of "Playboy" interview page proof

      n.p., n.d.. 8.5" x 11". "Single page typed document, appears to be a letter sent to Malcolm for reflection and review, typed on tissue stock, 8.5"" x 11"" with minor outer edge creasing. Signed by Malcolm X with a large penned bracket as ""Malcolm X"".A fascinating and revealing letter which was drafted by a another party for Malcolm X's review and reflection. Malcolm X's earlier years as a prominent leader for The Nation of Islam, had him proselytizing black supremacy, advocating the separation of black and white Americans and rejecting the civil rights movement for its emphasis on integration. Malcolm X promoted the Nation's teachings including the specific beliefs that:· that black people are the original people of the world· that white people are ""devils""· That blacks are superior to whites, and· that the demise of the white race is imminent.Many whites and some blacks were alarmed by Malcolm X and the statements he made during this period. He and the Nation of Islam were described as hatemongers, black supremacists, racists, violence-seekers, segregationists, and a threat to improved race relations. He was accused of being anti-Semitic. One of the goals of the civil rights movement was to end disenfranchisement of African Americans, but the Nation of Islam forbade its members from participating in voting and other aspects of the political process. Civil rights organizations denounced him and the ""Nation"" as irresponsible extremists whose views did not represent African Americans. He called the 1963 March on Washington ""the farce on Washington"", and said he did not know why so many black people were excited about a demonstration ""run by whites in front of a statue of a president who has been dead for a hundred years and who didn't like us when he was alive"" Malcolm X promoted hate, and used this powerful emotion to create an entire movement of blacks against the white manHowever this letter, written in a somewhat metaphoric and poetic style, was composed by an unknown follower of Malcolm X , and essentially begged him to reflect and reconsider his beliefs and methods. Perhaps this letter created the necessary 'seed of doubt' which was the catalyst for Malcolm X's turning point. In his later years, Malcolm X had an incredible epiphany which rocked his beliefs to the core, and set him on an alternate path during his pilgrimage to Mecca.The profound typed letter, signed and bracketed by Malcolm X thus clearly demonstrating he had read and reviewed the letter, may very well have been the planted seed that set him on a path questioning everything he stood for. The letter is shown in full below:""Ask for dark flour, whole wheat flour. But if you ask for white bread, you want something that has no nutritional value. All the good that was in it has been bleached out of it, and it will constipate you. If you want pure sugar, you want dark sugar. Mr. Malcolm, consider this. Stop and think a moment seriously. What kind of a religion can you have whose entire basis is hatred. You talk about separating the blacks from whites to form an all-black nation. What kind of success could a nation have, any nation, whose very founding principle was hatred?Sir, Moses taught separation. Moses told the slavemasterPharoah 'Let my people go to a land flowing with milk and honey.' No one said that Moses taught hate.Noah taught separation. Lot taught separation. Jesussaid that when he comes it will be harvest time, and in theharvest the xx wheat will be separated from the chaff, thegoats separated from the sheep, the righteous separated from the wicked, the oppressed separated xxxxxx from theoppressor. No one said that Jesus or Noah or lot taught hate.In fact, Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and Lot,so xx shall it be in the last day. Judgement Day is harvest time, and the good then will be separated from the bad. Never integrate at harvest time. You separate what you want from what you don't want. That's religion, that's not hate.Mr. Malcolm, I am sure you know that there is considerablediscussion about a Congressional probe of your organization...Sir, it's a rumor is all I know.""Perhaps this letter was the ironic twist which gave Malcolm X pause that this very 'machine' that Malcolm helped to build, was NOT the way to enlightenment or unity. He quickly became disenfranchised with The Nation of Islam and it then was during his pilgrimage to Mecca that Malcolm X had an epiphany which rocked his beliefs to the core, and set him on an alternate path. Malcolm witnessed what he claims he never saw in the United States: men of all color and nationalities treating each other equally. "Throngs of people, obviously Muslims from everywhere, bound for the pilgrimage," he'd begun to notice at the airport terminal before boarding the plane for Cairo in Frankfurt, "were hugging and embracing. They were of all complexions, the whole atmosphere was of warmth and friendliness. The feeling hit me that there really wasn't any color problem here. The effect was as though I had just stepped out of a prison." To enter the state of ihram required of all pilgrims heading for Mecca, Malcolm abandoned his trademark black suit and dark tie for the two-piece white garment pilgrims must drape over their upper and lower bodies. "Every one of the thousands at the airport, about to leave for Jedda, was dressed this way," Malcolm wrote. "You could be a king or a peasant and no one would know." That, of course, is the point of ihram. As Islam interprets it, it reflects the equality of man before God.He may have entered Mecca in 1964 as ""Malcolm X"", but he left Mecca as ""El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz"", when he became an orthodox Muslim, adopted the Muslim name and distanced himself from the teachings of the black Muslims. This was the moment he sealed his fate as his previous followers, and ""The Nation of Islam"" assassinated him in 1965, when his new path and preaching's were in direct conflict with their beliefs. Most of the energy of his adult life was invested in the pursuit of black supremacy, and in one short moment, he made a complete 180 degree turn and the last year of his life was spent in embracing unification, and co-existence. In 1965 Life Magazine published a legacy article on the life and death of Malcolm X, within which they quoted him shortly before his assassination (and in perhaps his last epiphany) as having said ""I did many things as a Muslim that I am sorry for now. I was a zombie back then - like all Muslims - I was hypnotized, pointed in a certain direction and told to march. Well I guess a man's entitled to make a fool of himself if he's ready to pay the cost. It cost me 12 years"""

I quattro Vangeli sono stati tradotti dal greco dal Pontificio Istituto Biblico.<br> Tiratura di 275 esempl. su carta a mano Magnani. Il ns., 31, fa parte dei 250 numerati 1-250. In perfetto stato.<br> Cfr. Cat. Mardersteig,130: “L'edizione delle "Epistole et Evangelii", stampata a Firenze nel 1495 per Piero Pacini da Pescia da parte di Lorenzo de' Morgiani e Giovanni di Magonza, è uno dei più rari e più belli incunaboli illustrati con xilografie.. Il testo italiano dell'originale comprende tutti i brani della Bibbia che si trovano nel "Missale Romanum"; questi sono illustrati con 164 xilografie, delle quali 22 rappresentano gli evangelisti e i profeti, mentre le restanti 142 xilografie sono illustrazioni per i testi del Vecchio e del Nuovo Testamento. Di queste, 110 fanno parte dei quattro Vangeli.. Tutte le xilografie però erano state incise su disegno dello stesso artista. Non c'è nessun documento che ci riveli il suo nome, tuttavia l'identità stilistica di queste illustrazioni con l'opera di Bartolomeo di Giovanni - alunno e collaboratore di Domenico Ghirlandajo - è talmente evidente che può essergli attribuita anche quest'importante opera illustrata”.

        King Lear

      Ganymed Original Editions Limited, London 1963 - No. 265 of 275 (plus four additional lettered copies), Elephant Folio - over 15" tall to 23" tall, signed by artist. King Lear is regarded by many as one of Shakespeare's supreme acheivements, noted for "its probing observations on the nature of human suffering and kinship". George Bernard Shaw opined that "No man will ever write a better tragedy than Lear." (N.B., above info and quotes from Wiki). ***ABOUT THE ARTIST: Oskar Kokoschka (1886 - 1980) was one of the leading exponents of Expressionism. In his early portraits, gesture intensifies the psychological penetration of character; especially powerful among his later works are allegories of the artist's emphatic humanism. His dramas, poems, and prose are significant for their psychological insight and stylistic daring - which perfectly complements the themes of the play. ***DESCRIPTION: Unbound Elephant Folio volume cased in grey cloth clamshell box with blue, grey, and red marbled papers and gilt lettering on the spine (although colophon and prospectus call for all copies to have been issued bound); includes sixteen black-and-white lithographs by Oskar Kokoschka created in 1963, hand set in Fell type and printed at the University Press, Oxford, on handmade Crisbrook paper specially made for this edition by J. Barcham Greene Ltd., the text is based on the "New Shakespeare" published by the Cambridge University Press; 17.75" tall, signed by artist Oskar Kokoschka on limitation page, Limited Edition no. 263 of 275 (plus four additional lettered copies). ***CONDITION: The sheets are in fine condition with some very slight rubbing from the marbled lining onto the first page; clamshell box is in fine condition with some very minor wear along corners and one very tiny (2 mm.) brown spot on the front cover. ***POSTAGE: Due to weight, additional postage will apply; we are happy to ship at cost to both domestic and international customers, please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Where the Wild Things Are.

      New York: Harper & Row, 1963 - Oblong quarto. Original cloth-backed pictorial paper boards. With the Sendak designed dust jacket. Housed in a grey cloth slipcase. Trivial bump to the top edge but an excellent copy in the nicked and lightly spotted, price-clipped dust jacket with a number of brown marks from some liquid having been splashed. Illustrated by Sendak. First edition, first printing, first issue. There seem to be multiple issues of the first printing of this elusive and important book. Variations in price occur throughout the later states but have no bearing on the status of the true first issue. Primacy is established through the text of the blurb which, as in the present copy, makes no mention of the Caldecott Award bestowed upon the book on publication. The winning of such a prestigious prize compelled the publishers to recall the entire edition and change the text on the dust wrapper to include the achievement. Copies therefore with the original blurb are rare and are indubitably the earliest. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Outsider #3 (Inscribed by Charles Bukowski)

      New Orleans: Loujon Press, 1963. Original wraps. Near Fine. INSCRIBED BY CHARLES BUKOWSKI on the front pink tissue-guard (to fellow writer Dan Georgakas). A very sharp copy to boot of the 3rd issue (of only 4 all told) of this highly-influential small press poetry magazine. Published by the formidable Loujon Press of New Orleans (the imprint of John and Gypsy Lou Webb), Outsider #3 is hand-printed and features a long "section dedicated to the poet Charles Bukowski, selected by the editors as deservedly the most inevitable recipient of The Outsider's first annual 'outsider-of-the-year' award (1962)". Beyond this tribute, the Webbs have also given Bukowski this issue's cover, with a wonderful, gritty black-and-white photo of the poet just below a cryptic painting of Gypsy Lou Webb (by David Pallock). Apart from Bukowski, this issue also includes work by Kenneth Patchen, Henry Miller, William Burroughs, Gary Snyder, Robert Creeley, Harold Norse, et al. Solid and Near Fine in its pictorial wrappers, with just a bit of tanning at the preliminaries. Bukowski of course would go on to do 2 highly-regarded signed/limiteds for John and Gypsy Lou Webb in the the early to mid 60s ("It Catches My Heart in Its Hands" and "Crucifix in a Deathhand") but his signature, certainly not scarce in itself, is surprisingly uncommon in this incarnation.

        Abbildungen Herzoglich-Braunschweigischer Gestüt-Pferde ... 1tes Heft.Braunschweig, 1827-1828. Oblong 1mo (47.5 x 63 cm). First instalment of 6 lithographed plates of horses, plus 1 additional lithographed view, all beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand with highlights in gum arabic, and including two with the captions and artist's name in manuscript. All loosely preserved in a proof state of the original publisher's lithographed paper wrappers, including a list of plates. Preserved in a modern portfolio.

      Bibliotheca Hippologica I.H. Anderhub (1963), 238 (this set?); WorldCat (2 copies, incl. 1 of the first instalment only); not in Bibl. hippologica Johan Dejager; Huth; Mennessier de la Lance; Podeschi; for Pirscher: Thieme & Becker XXVII, p. 90. Beautifully hand-coloured proof states, with occasional additions in ink, of the very rare first instalment of a series of prints of the Duke of Braunschweig's (1804-1873) stud horses, plus an additional view of the Harzburg stud farm not included in the list of plates printed on the back wrapper. The first horse depicted is Mirza, a "Silver grey national Arabian with red spots on his left shoulder, presented to the King of England by the Shah of Persia in 1819. As the Persian envoy assured the King, this was the noblest and most excellent Arabian ever to have stood in his master's stables". The other illustrations show mainly descendants of Mirza, who was transferred to the Ducal stables in 1821.The plate of Mirza would finally appear newly lithographed in reverse with a completely different background, two others would have their background changed and the other three would have only minor changes to the background or none at all. Only plate three contains its final plate number. Even the lithographed wrapper is in a proof state and doesn't include the coat of arms that would appear on the final publication. While the first instalment is already very rare, the second and last instalments are extremely rare, known from only two or three copies.Possibly the set from the impressive horse library of I.H. Anderhub, the only set known to have coloured plates. Like our copy it includes 7 plates, the 6 from the original instalment plus 1 additional, and although it doesn't mention any proofs or manuscript additions it could be erroneously described, as the manuscript additions are very subtle. When auctioned in 1963 it already had a reserve price of 2600 Deutsche Mark, the second most expensive item of the auction.No known copy of the final publication are coloured, and because the present are proofs, it is possible it was presented to Duke of Braunschweig himself.Slightly browned, some minor fraying to the extremities of the leaves and a few specks, otherwise in very good condition. Front and back wrappers separated, slightly frayed along the extremities and a couple minor smudges, but still good.

I quattro Vangeli sono stati tradotti dal greco dal Pontificio Istituto Biblico. Tiratura di 275 esempl. su carta a mano Magnani. Il ns., 31, fa parte dei 250 numerati 1-250. In perfetto stato. Cfr. Cat. Mardersteig,130: “L’edizione delle "Epistole et Evangelii", stampata a Firenze nel 1495 per Piero Pacini da Pescia da parte di Lorenzo de’ Morgiani e Giovanni di Magonza, è uno dei più rari e più belli incunaboli illustrati con xilografie.. Il testo italiano dell’originale comprende tutti i brani della Bibbia che si trovano nel "Missale Romanum"; questi sono illustrati con 164 xilografie, delle quali 22 rappresentano gli evangelisti e i profeti, mentre le restanti 142 xilografie sono illustrazioni per i testi del Vecchio e del Nuovo Testamento. Di queste, 110 fanno parte dei quattro Vangeli.. Tutte le xilografie però erano state incise su disegno dello stesso artista. Non c’è nessun documento che ci riveli il suo nome, tuttavia l’identità stilistica di queste illustrazioni con l’opera di Bartolomeo di Giovanni - alunno e collaboratore di Domenico Ghirlandajo - è talmente evidente che può essergli attribuita anche quest’importante opera illustrata”.

        Buildings, Plans, and Designs

      1963. First Edition . Signed. WRIGHT, Frank Lloyd. Buildings, Plans, and Designs. New York: Horizon, (1963). Large folio (16 by 25-1/2 inches), 100 loose plates as issued in original half black cloth portfolio with ribbon ties, accompanying text in original self-wrappers; original corrugated shipping carton. $4500.First edition in English of Frank Lloyd Wright’s first major publication, number 174B of 2600 copies—a grand portfolio of one hundred large folio plates of Wright’s earliest designs, including the Frederick C. Robie house (1909), “the finest of the Prairie houses.”The first period of Wright's career ""was one of bold invention and public acclaim. It reached its climax in 1910 with the [German] publication of his architectural drawings in an extraordinary pair of portfolios."" The young architect had come to Europe in 1909, invited by the German publisher Wasmuth and Professor Kuno Francke for the purpose of a cultural and ""artistic interchange"" (Sweeney, xv-xx). Buildings, Plans and Designs remained for many years virtually unknown in America, because a fire in 1914 had destroyed, not only Wright's home at Taliesin, but also that portion of the 1910 printing intended for American distribution. Wright authorized the publication of this edition in 1958, just a year before his death. Included are designs for 70 buildings and projects between 1893 and 1909, including the W.H. Winslow house (1893), the Unity Temple at Oak Park (1906) and the Frederick C. Robie house (1909), which ""has generally been regarded as the finest of the Prairie Houses"" (Roth, 463). ""Entire schools of architectural design and thought were in many cases founded on individual buildings or ideas presented in this folio"" (Sweeney). Despite Wright's popularity and the number of intervening years, this American edition is preceded only by the German-language editions and an extremely scarce Japanese translation. Sweeney 87. A fine copy of an impressive production in original shipping carton.

        The Favourite Game

      London: Secker & Warburg, 1963. First British edition, preceding both the Canadian and American publication. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Leonard Cohen on the title page. Near fine in an excellent dust jacket with a touch of rubbing and shelfwear. A nice example. "Is there any Canadian novel as compelling and as good as at capturing youthful anxieties as J. D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye? Absolutely. . . . Leonard Cohen's first novel, The Favorite Game" (Globe & Mail). Paul Quarrington said "[t]he Favorite Game is a morally brave book, intimate and unflinching. . . . Leonard Cohen sustains the highest level of poetic craftsmanship throughout," and The Observer added "[h]e is a writer of terrific energy and color, a Rabelaisian comic and a visualizer of memorable scenes." The Calgary Albertan concluded that "[i]t is the kind of book that becomes a law unto itself, simply because there is nothing with which to compare it."
