        The Craft of Intelligence.

      New York: Harper & Row,, 1963. Octavo. Original black quarter cloth, spine lettered in gilt, grey cloth sides, publisher's device gilt to front board, fore edge untrimmed. 4 photographic plates. Spine sunned, uneven fading to black cloth on rear board, edges toned. A very good copy. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author "To Gen Sir Kenneth Strong, as a reminder of our works together, with the sincere regards of the author, Allen W. Dulles Xmas 1963" on the front free endpaper. A magnificent association copy, linking two of the most influential figures in military intelligence during the Second World War and after. At the start of the Second World War Dulles was recruited to run the Swiss desk of the Office of Strategic Services, precursor to the CIA, to which Eisenhower appointed him director in 1953, making him the first civilian to hold that position. His extravagant career ended with the Bay of Pigs debacle in 1961, though he remains the longest-serving Director of Central Intelligence. Kenneth Strong was appointed Eisenhower's chief of intelligence in 1943, and became his "firm friend and confidant" (ODNB), helping plan the Allied landings in Sicily, D-Day, and the final German surrender. After the war he became director-general of the political intelligence department at the Foreign Office, and later at the Ministry of Defence following reorganisation in 1964, retiring two years later. Harry Rositzke, Dulles's colleague at the OSS, later remarked: "When the whole thing was over, I had a chat with the British General Strong, who was Ike's chief of G-2, and he said he thought our tracking of just those two SS divisions in the south of France, the Das Reich and the Lehr, and the way they were slowed down getting to the Normandy beachhead saved at least 10,000 lives. That alone, to my mind, paid for the entire OSS operation around the world" (cited after Srodes, Allen Dulles: Master of Spies, p. 365).

        DREAMS AT THE TEA-TABLE

      Renegade Press, Cleveland 1963 - First Printing, one of 100 numbered copies, this being copy no.89. Slim octavo (21.5cm); orange letterpressed wrappers, saddle-stitched; [32]pp. Signature of Lewis Putnam Turco, a Cleveland Formalist poet, to verso of front wrapper, with his embossed library stamp to lower corner of colophon. Some fibrous residue along spine-fold, else bright and clean throughout; Very Good+. In February 1963, levy purchased a used letterhead hand-press, found by his brother Jim, and begins printed poetry under the Renegade Press imprint from his aunt and uncle's house in Cleveland. The first three Renegade Press titles were comprised of levy's own poetry, and were largely destroyed by him, with very few copies extant. The fourth publication (March, 1963) was a slim volume of poems by George Robert Beck - a friend of levy's and for a time, a detective and deputy sheriff in the Cleveland Police Department. Certainly a curious friendship, given levy's protracted dealings with the Cleveland PD.

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.

Negro History Week was created in the United States in 1926 to coincide with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Black History Month was first proposed in 1969 at Kent State, but was not nationally adopted in 1976, as part of the United States Bicentennial. The woodcuts in this calendar hearken back to the 1930s WPA Chicago woodcut style. One of the contributing artists, Bernard Goss, worked with the Illinois WPA Art Project and contributed work to the American National Negro Exposition in Chicago. His wife at the time, Margaret Taylor, later married Charles Burroughs, and together they co-founded the Ebony Museum of Negro History (now known as the DuSable Museum of African American History). Margaret and Charles compiled the artwork in this calendar. Very scarce; as of February 2017, WorldCat locates only one holding in the United States.

        One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich

      1963. First Edition . Signed. SOLZHENITSYN, Alexander. One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. New York: E.P. Dutton, 1963. Octavo, original gray cloth, original dust jacket. $12,000.First edition in English of the Nobel Prize-winner's first published work, signed on the half title by Solzhenitsyn in Cyrillic, along with an inscription in English in an unidentified hand, ""For the C— Family.""""The speech denouncing Stalin at the 22nd Communist Party Congress in 1961 emboldened Solzhenitsyn to submit One Day for publication to… the Moscow literary journal Novyi Mir. Premier Nikita Khrushchev piloted a special resolution through the Central Committee authorizing its publication; it appeared in November 1962, and Solzhenitsyn found himself catapulted to literary fame by his first published work, not only for its intrinsic merits but for the very fact that the government was allowing fictional treatment of a formerly forbidden topic, life in Stalin's forced-labor camps"" (Terras, Handbook of Russian Literature, 437). The novel was based on Solzhenitsyn's eight-year incarceration in a Kazakhstan labor camp. It is the first and perhaps the best example of this Nobel laureate's belief in ""the indivisibility of truth and 'the perception of world literature as the one great heart which beats for the concerns and misfortunes of our world'"" (Solzhenitsyn, Nobel prize acceptance speech, 1970). This, the first English translation, was faithful to the Russian original and necessarily included the ""deliberately muted themes"" resultant from Solzhenitsyn's self-censorship required for publication in the Soviet Union in 1962. Translated by Ralph Parker. With a foreword by Alexander Tvardovsky, the editor who accepted the novel for publication in Novyi Mir. Issued simultaneously in English and American trade editions. ""First Edition"" stated on copyright page. Lightest edge-wear to dust jacket. An about-fine signed copy.

        Photograph

      1963. (KENNEDY, Jacqueline) SHAW, Mark. Gelatin silver print. New York: Mark Shaw, 1963. Black-and-white photographic print, measuring 10-1/2 by 10-1/2 inches, handsomely window matted and framed, entire piece measures 20 by 20 inches. $6200.Vintage photographic print, taken at the White House, depicting Jackie Kennedy sitting on the floor holding John Jr. and Caroline in her lap. Bears Shaw’s own studio stamp and “Private Print” on verso.Photographed early in Kennedy’s presidency, this image was evidently printed by photographer Mark Shaw in 1963, most likely in preparation for his book, The John F. Kennedys. The gelatin silver print shows Jackie Kennedy gently smiling while sitting on the floor of the White House nursery, dressed in a pale suit with her legs tucked under her, holding a laughing John Jr. in her lap and tucking Caroline against her side. “Just as Abraham Lincoln thought Mathew Brady’s photography won him the presidency, so Jackie Kennedy thought Mark Shaw’s pictures helped her husband win the 1960 election. ‘They really should be in the National Gallery!’ she enthused… Shaw was very much a part of Camelot and his most famous still photography is associated with that period” (Sullivan, 492). Shaw began his career as a fashion photographer for publications including Harper’s Bazaar, Mademoiselle, and LIFE Magazine. His talent for discovering new designers and trends caught the eye of Jackie Kennedy, who was growing increasingly visible as the wife of a senator and who was already on her way to becoming a style icon. In 1959, seeking to bolster JFK’s presidential campaign, the Kennedys agreed to let Shaw have unrestricted access to their home and lives in order to do a photo-essay for LIFE called A Frontrunner’s Wife. Shaw proved unintrusive, managing to take extraordinary candid shots that Jackie compared to the work of Caravaggio. Shaw quickly became a family friend and was a frequent guest in the Kennedy home. Allowed complete access to the family, Shaw began to take photographs of the Kennedys in Georgetown and in Washington; on vacation in Hyannis Port and elsewhere; and even in the White House once JFK was elected President. In 1964, the year after this print was produced, the image appeared as a half-tone in The John F. Kennedys, a photobook that Shaw compiled just after JFK’s assassination for Farrar, Straus as a tribute to the family he had grown to love. After JFK died, Shaw became quite protective of the Kennedy prints and put together just five complete albums of the photographs used in the books to be given to four members of the Kennedy family and Dr. Max Jacobson, Kennedy’s personal physician. As Shaw died unexpectedly in 1969 at the age of 47, Kennedy prints bearing his studio stamps are quite rare. Shaw studio stamp dated 1963 and “Private Print” stamp on verso. Pencil number on verso.A beautiful print. Beautifully matted and framed.
