        SECONDS ..

      New York: Pantheon Books A Division of Random House, [1963].. Octavo,cloth-backed boards. First edition. The story of a man caught up by a nameless organization that uses advanced managerial and technological methods to achieve its singular aim -- lifting the moral and physical barriers to personal liberty and self-indulgence. Brilliantly filmed by John Frankenheimer with Rock Hudson as the hapless victim of a shadowy organization which ultimately kills him and recycles his body parts. "Like David Ely's slender, nightmarish novel, SECONDS has a thinly science-fictional rationale, but it is actually an exercise in Kafkaesque horror ... Outstandingly photographed by James Wong Howe, extremely well played by the whole cast (the choice of Hudson as every man's self-image is inspired), and directed with the imaginative flair John Frankenheimer brought to The Manchurian Candidate, Seven Days in May, and 99 and 44/100% Dead, SECONDS is perhaps the scariest movie of the 1960s." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 374. Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-125. Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, p. 235. Reginald 37728. Hubin (1994), p. 266. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with touch of wear at upper spine end.

        No Voyage.

      London: J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd,, 1963. Octavo. Original green patterned boards, titles gilt to spine. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy with the dust jacket somewhat spine-tanned, very lightly rubbed at the extremities, and with few other very minor marks. Bookseller's ticket to front flap and rear panel. First edition, first impression, of the very scarce true first book appearance of the poetry of American poet Mary Oliver (b. 1935), preceding the US edition by two years, since Oliver was briefly living in London at the time. The print run was small and many copies went to libraries, further contributing to the rarity of collectable copies such as this. Though fairly well represented institutionally, we can trace only one copy at auction. The titular poem of this collection had won the Poetry Society of America's annual price in 1962. The Harvard Review described Oliver's poetry as "an excellent antidote for the excesses of civilization, for too much flurry and inattention, and the baroque conventions of our social and professional lives. She is a poet of wisdom and generosity whose vision allows us to look intimately at a world not of our making". From this debut aged 28, Oliver went on to win the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize (for American Primitive, 1983), among many others, and to become "far and away this country's best selling poet" (The New York Times, 18 Feb. 2007). Primarily a poet of nature, she lived for most of her writing career in Provincetown, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and has been compared to Emerson and Emily Dickinson.

        Aesopus moralisatus: Aesopus Vita et Fabulae: I Cimel. Faksimile des Druckes GW 441, HCR 353 (1485).

      Milano Edizioni Ristampe Anastatiche 1963 - Ganzpergamenteinband mit zwei dunklen Lederlaschen mit Zierkreuzen auf Rücken im O-Schuber mit Papiertitelschild. Vorderkanten des Einbandes mit vorgezogenem Leder, Vorzugsausgabe auf Büttenpapier mit dem Wasserzeichen "Schere". 172 Blätter mit 88 Holzschnitten auf unbeschnittenem Büttenpapier, 4°. - - - Esemplare n° 10 dei TRECENTO tirati. Der von Del Tuppo ins Italienische übersetzte Aesop ist sein bedeutendstes Druckwerk. Die Holzschnitte zeigen in den Umrahmungen spanisch-maurischen Einfluss, verraten aber in der kraft- und humorvollen Zeichnung die Hand eines nordischen Meisters: "Il Maestro dell’Esopo di Napoli provenne da un luogo non definibile della grande zona fra la Fiandra e la foce del Waal" (Gutenberg-Jahrbuch 1934, 106; 1939, 172ff.). Man nimmt an, dass der vermutlich in Straßburg ausgebildete Künstler, über Lyon und Barcelona nach Neapel kam. Francesco del Tuppo übernahm 1478 die Druckerei von Sixtus Riessinger, mit dem er seit 1473 zusammenarbeitete. Del Tuppo war Riessingers Korrektor und wohl auch Geldgeber. Die Druckerei befand sich im Haus von Del Tuppo in der "vico S. Clarae". Man geht davon aus, dass Del Tuppo nicht selber druckte, sondern dass Christian Preller, Johann Tresser und Martin von Amsterdam für ihn druckten (Geldner 1970, 127ff.). Das Originalwerk wurde von Preller, Tresser und Martin von Amsterdam 1485 in Neapel gedruckt. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        GULAG PRISON PLAYING CARDS, FORMER SOVIET UNION.

      Partial set of 15 playing cards, made of blank paper and sheets of newspapers (7 x 5 cm), accompanied by a letter, written in cursive Cyrillic (14 x 22 cm). (Very Good, cards with small chips, letter with soft folds and tears in margins). - [Former Sovet Union, circa January 28, 1963] A set of 15 hand-made playing cards, made by inmates in a Russian Gulag, is accompanied by a letter by a warden lieutenant, detailing the confiscation of the deck. - This is a unique (unfortunately incomplete) set of playing cards, made by prisoners in an Russian Gulag (Prison Camp) in 1962 or in early 1963. The cards are accompanied by a letter by a Warden Lieutenant Kozhimiakin’s letter to Superintendent Danilchuk, detailing the confiscation of the deck from two inmates Muratov and Kuts. Playing cards were contraband at all levels of the prison system in the Soviet Union, and they were confiscated from both inmates as well as civilian workers (Mochulsky, F.V., Gulag Boss: A Soviet Memoir, 2011, p. 26). Despite this, a large number of playing cards were produced in Gulags in secrecy and a whole underground, highly hierarchical gambling scene was developed. The production of the cards was described by A. Applebaum (Gulag: The History of the Soviet Camps, 2003): Experts’ among the thieves specialised in the production of playing cards, a process which became, by the 1904s highly sophisticated. First, the ‘expert’ would cut squares of paper with a razor blade. To ensure the cards were sturdy enough, he then pasted five or six squares together using ‘glue’ made by rubbing a piece of damp bred against a handkerchief. After that, he put the cards under one of the bunks overnight to harden. When they were ready, he stamped the suits on to the card, using a stamp carved out of the bottom of a mug. He used black ash for the black cards. If the medicine streptomycin was available – if the camp or prison doctor had it, and could be threatened or bribed to give some away – he would make red cards as well. Our cards seem to be produced in a similar way. They were either a part of a 32 or 36 card deck, and made in a size, which could be easier hidden in pieces of clothing.

        SECONDS ..

      New York: Pantheon Books A Division of Random House, [1963].. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. The story of a man caught up by a nameless organization that uses advanced managerial and technological methods to achieve its singular aim -- lifting the moral and physical barriers to personal liberty and self-indulgence. Brilliantly filmed by John Frankenheimer with Rock Hudson as the hapless victim of a shadowy organization which ultimately kills him and recycles his body parts. "Like David Ely's slender, nightmarish novel, SECONDS has a thinly science-fictional rationale, but it is actually an exercise in Kafkaesque horror ... Outstandingly photographed by James Wong Howe, extremely well played by the whole cast (the choice of Hudson as every man's self-image is inspired), and directed with the imaginative flair John Frankenheimer brought to The Manchurian Candidate, Seven Days in May, and 99 and 44/100% Dead, SECONDS is perhaps the scariest movie of the 1960s." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 374. Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-125. Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, p. 235. Reginald 37728. Hubin (1994), p. 266. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with touch of wear at upper spine end.

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

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1963 [actually issued September 1962].. PROOF copy in softcovers. Pp.288. The text features numerous changes to the published text, and "has more errors and required more amendments than any other Fleming title" Gilbert, p.354. Some acceptable general wear, ink note to flyleaf; a very good, used copy. 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.
