        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.

        Claude FRANCOIS Chanson autographe inédite

      - Chanson autographe inédite « Le petit clown ». (1963) ; 1p ½ in-4 à l’encre rouge et noire et au crayon à papier. Angle restauré avec soin sans atteinte au texte. Texte inédit du chanteur Claude François de 1963 intitulé « Le petit clown » adaptée de la chanson américaine « See the funny clown » de Bobby Goldsboro. Cette chanson n’a pas été autorisée de sortie par les éditeurs d’origines, elle reste dans l’oubli pendant plus de cinquante ans. Manuscrit de premier jet raturé avec des ajouts de mots. Il est intéressant de voir la manière de travailler de Claude François qui distingue les différentes strophes à l’encre noire et rouge, la dernière a été rédigée au crayon à papier : « des rubans rouges pour tes jolis cheveux dorés. Isabelles. Rappelle-toi le soleil était brûlant Rappelle-toi je t’aimais Regarde le petit clown marrant amusant. Claude François ajoute un pense-bête entre guillemet : (recherchez le disque « See the funny little clown ». Je ne t’épouserai pas ce printemps, ni cet été, ni même jamais car je suis un « paysan » (un homme de la terre) l’argent je n’ai que l’or du soleil du matin ou l’argent des rayons de lune à t’offrir Je ne pourrais pas t’offrir une bague en diamant. Je suis fatigué maintenant mais Dieu que je suis heureux d’avoir bien rempli ma tâche ici-bas. Je suis fatigué maintenant bien sûr c’était beau la vie, mais je suis fatigué maintenant. Qui a dormi dans mon lit, qui a pleuré sur mon oreiller. J’étoufferai mes sanglots dans mon oreiller, je me mordrai les lèvres, mais jamais tu ne sauras à quel point (combien) je souffre. Tôt ce matin, un matin tôt je vais me marier lundi prochain quelle âge as-tu belle jeune fille j’aurai mes 16 ans je vais faire mes 16 ans tôt le matin du lundi prochain. »

        La Divine Comedie

      Paris: Editions D'Art Les Hueres Claires, 1963. First edition. Fine. A Fine set. Six folio volumes, measuring 333 mm x 265 mm. Each volume made up of loose sheets of Rives paper in stiff paper-covered wrappers, housed in individual publisher's slipcases. Originally commissioned by the Italian government, Dali painted 100 watercolor illustrations for the Italian epic. These were painstakingly transferred in color over several years using 3500 woodcuts. Volumes 2, 4 and 6 with a justification sheet, copy number 1,496, from an edition of 3,900. (There were also a few smaller limitations issued). A masterpiece of world literature, Dante's Comedia was originally written early in the 14th century. With Virgil (then Beatrice) as a guide, Dante journeys through Hell, Purgatory and Heaven, as a pilgrim seeking salvation (while noting which of his political adversaries were suffering torment in Hell). It ends in a spiritual revelation in the presence of God. On its face, an imaginative vision of the afterlife, but it is also an allegory for the soul's struggle from sin to purity in keeping with Thomas Aquinas' view of Christianity. A transcendent work with the full suite of Dali's riveting images. Fine.
