        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.

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

      London: Jonathan Cape [actually issued September 1962]. 1963 - 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.

        Capital Theory and the Rate of Return

      1963. First Edition . SOLOW, Robert M. Capital Theory and the Rate of Return. Amsterdam: North-Holland, 1963. Octavo, original green paper boards. $1500.First edition of this Nobel prize-winner's De Vries Lectures on economics.""These three lectures in the volume under review consolidate and extend Robert Solow's previous examination of the relationship between capital and economic growth. What is crucial is to know the social rate of return on investment; this is the principal theme, and a sound one. Readers of Solow's articles on capital and growth will surely wish to continue with this book. It is also a particularly good introduction to the discussion; prepared for oral delivery, the presentation seems easier to follow than his previous contributions. It would be an injustice, however, to imply that these lectures are merely one more contribution to the current debate over capital and growth; they are more than that. This review can scarcely suggest the breadth of the discussion or the elegance of the theoretical analysis and manipulation of simple models; suffice it to say that the whole volume is highly stimulating"" (Denison, American Economic Review). Interior generally fine, slight rubbing to spine ends, mild toning to rear board. A near-fine copy.

The winner of the 1964 Caldecott Medal, Where the Wild Things Are is Maurice Sendak's iconic children's book about a young boy who is sent to bed without supper and imagines himself in a fantasy jungle world where he is the king of the ferocious "wild things." A very personal book, the story is based on Sendak's childhood; the idea of "wild things" came from the Yiddish term "vilde chaya" or "wild animal" that was popular with his mother, the wild things themselves were based on his aunts and uncles, and the experience of being sent to bed without supper for being a "vilde chaya" was one that Sendak knew well. Although the book was initially criticized for its dark undertones, Sendak's keen ability to connect with the emotions and dreams experienced by children worldwide, paired with his exquisite illustrations, make this book a timeless classic.. Illus. by Sendak, Maurice. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        The Feminine Mystique

      New York: W.W. Norton & Company, 1963. First edition of the keystone text of Second Wave Feminism by the "Mother of the Movement." After years spent writing for popular women's magazines, Friedan argued that the ennui of the postwar American housewife stemmed from the "feminine mystique:" a relatively recent model of womanhood being marketed as a timeless ideal. Combining a historian's eye with her training as a psychologist and social scientist, Friedan mapped the changing cultural expectations of the twentieth century, from the active, can-do attitudes encouraged in women before the war to the glorification of the passive, sheltered wife and mother by midcentury. "Powerful forces in this nation must be served by those pretty domestic pictures that stare at us everywhere, forbidding a woman to use her own abilities in the world." An unexpected bestseller, The Feminine Mystique would become the founding text of the Women's Liberation movement of the 1960s and 1970s. A very good copy, rarely seen in better condition. Octavo, original black cloth spine lettered in gilt, red paper boards, original unclipped red typographic dust jacket, machine-deckled foreedge. Light shelfwear to jacket with a few short closed tears, short tape repair to verso, spine lightly toned.

Illus. by Sendak, Maurice. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Florenz. Aquarell.

       1963. Monogrammiert in Aquarell. Signiert, datiert und betitelt \"Friedrich Gotsch 63 / - Florenz -\". Farbfrische Arbeit auf Bütten. 46 x 60 (Blattgröße). Blattfüllendes, farbintensives Aquarell mit breiten Pinselstrichen, teilweise naß in naß gearbeitet. Von einem erhöhten Standpunkt aus malt Gotsch die Stadt mit dem Florentiner Dom Santa Maria del Fiore im Zentrum, dessen Kuppel der einzige konkrete Hinweis auf die toskanische Metropole ist. Umspannt wird die Stadt von einem mediterranen, blauen Himmel und die leuchtenden Farbtöne des Südens. - 1920 beginnt F. K. Gotsch ein Studium an der Sächsische Akademie der Künste Dresden und wird ein Meisterschüler von Oskar Kokoschka. Hier hat er Kontakt mit Hilde Goldschmidt und Hans Meyboden. Zu Studienaufenthalten hält er sich in New York, Paris, Italien und Südfrankreich, München und Berlin auf. Bei einem Luftangriff während des Zweiten Weltkriegs wurde sein Berliner Atelier und fast sein komplettes Werk zerstört. Nachdem Gotsch in den ersten Nachkriegsjahren vorrangig kulturpolitisch tätig ist, konzentriert er sich ab 1951 wieder vollständig auf seine künstlerische Arbeit. Nach einer Phase intensiver Auseinandersetzung mit dem Kubismus Picassos und des Experimentierens mit abstrakten Darstellungsformen entwickelt der Künstler den für sein weiteres Werk typischen \"späten Expressionismus\". Als einer der wenigen gegenständlich malenden Künstler seiner Generation kann sich Gotsch schon zu Lebzeiten öffentlicher Anerkennung erfreuen. - Minimale Griffknicke an den Blattkanten. Außenränder ,wohl technikbedingt, etwas wellig. Expressionismus, Italien, Florenz, Santa Maria del Fiore,

        Nobel Prize laureate, John Steinbeck types a letter on his personal stationary about "Travels With Charley"

      New York, NY, February 13, 1963. 8.5" x 11". "Single page TLS, 8.5"" x 11"" signed by John Steinback and typed on his personal stationary with his New York address letterhead. Date ""February 13, 1963"", and signed ""John Steinbeck"". Accompanied by the matching post marked envelope, neatly slit along the top edge. The letter will include a LOA from James Spence. Both letter and envelope are fine/near fine.A lovely typed letter from John Steinbeck, written shortly after Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize for literature. John Steinbeck wrote to Rev. Gordon Gilsdorf, on his personal New York address stationary thanking him for his thoughts on, ""Travels With Charley"". Travels With Charley had hit the bookstores and the nonfiction bestseller lists in the summer of 1962. Steinbeck opened the book by describing his lifelong wanderlust and his preparations to rediscover the country he felt he had lost touch with after living in New York City and traveling in Europe for 20 years. He wrote of having many questions going into his journey, the main one being, ""What are Americans like today?"" However, he found that he had concerns about much of the ""new America"" he witnessed. Steinbeck tells of traveling throughout the United States in a specially made camper he named Rocinante, after Don Quixote's horse. His over 10,000 mile journey brought him awareness how peoples attitude and beliefs changed, and how much difference existed between the locals within the country, and how all states differ by how people may talk to one another or treat people. Perhaps one aspect which he noted back then in the early 1960's has gone on to become more of an issue today. Steinbeck discovered that technology was advancing so quickly as to give Americans more and more instant gratification, whether it was soup from vending machines or mobile homes (little would he know just how this accelerated with the advance of cell phones, the internet and gaming). With another central concern Steinbeck realized was that Americans are often oblivious to their immediate surroundings and their own culture. He also complained that Americans have put ""cleanliness first at the expense of taste"". He lamented that ""It looks as though the natural contentiousness of people has died"" and he worried that Americans had grown too comfortable and no longer interested in risk-taking and rebellion, two of the traits that made the country great. It is astonishing that only 55 years later we would be see these traits magnify to proportions that impact society on a grand level.In the book, Steinbeck spent a good deal of his journey lost, however it becomes evident at the end of the story that being lost is a metaphor for how much America has changed in Steinbeck's eyes. America, it seems, is in a sense directionless and therefore endangered as it moves into an uncertain future marked by huge population shifts, racial tensions, technological and industrial change, and unprecedented environmental destruction, all of which are at the forefront of our issues as a nation today but just in their infancy when Steinbeck reported on his experiences.A wonderful TLS typed and signed by John Steinbeck referencing one of his last books which resonates so thoroughly with the issues of the current day. LOA from James Spence."
