        AND WE ARE NOT SAVED

      New York: Philosophical Library, 1963. First Edition. Cloth. Very good +/Very Good -. 8vo. Original red cloth in printed dust-jacket. Very good overall. Jacket price-clipped with some moderate edge-wear. Some small chips to head and tail of DJ spine. Spot of soil to rear panel. Tape residue (unobtrusive) to front and rear flaps. Book has slight lean. Else sound and clean throughtout. INSCRIBED, dated (1969), and signed by author Wdowinksi to front endpaper. "With compliments of the author" stamped and corner of envelope with Wdowinksi's return address taped, also to front endpaper. Loosely laid in are two photo-mechanically reproduced articles by/about the Wdowinksi. 123pp. First edition of this important account of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising from one of its few leaders to survive. Wdowinski was a founder of Betar and a leader of the Irgun Zva'i Leumi during the Ghetto revolt, an experience recounted here along with the author's experience both in pre-war Poland as a politician/activist (he was an active member of the Warsaw underground and was a member of the advisory body of the Zydowskie Towarzystwo Opieki Spolecznej/Jewish Mutual Aid Society) and in the labor and concentration camps after the defeat of the uprising. Wdowinski later emmigrated to the US and taught psychology at the New School in New Yory City. In 1961 testified at the trial of Adolf Eichmann. He died in 1970. Widely considered one of the most authoritative account of the Warsaw revolt, it is decidedly scarce signed.

        I VANGELI SECONDO MATTEO, MARCO, LUCA, GIOVANNI.

      Officina Bodoni, 1963. In-4 p., legatura edit. in p. marocchino oasis verde con titolo e contorno in oro sul piatto anter., sovrac. trasparente protettiva, tagli super. dorati, astuccio con cuffie in pelle, pp. 345,(5), frontespizio inciso da Reynolds Stone, ornato da 114 xilografie - tratte da "Epistole et Evangelii" del 1495, create da Bartolomeo di Giovanni - nuovamente incise da Bruno Bramanti. 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".

        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"""

        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.
