        A complete set of 'Uncle' books: Uncle; Uncle Cleans Up; Uncle And His Detective; Uncle And The Treacle Trouble; Uncle And Claudius The Camel; Uncle And The Battle For Badgertown.

      8vo. 6 volumes; bound in salmon pink, bright blue, yellow, red, turquoise and Air Force blue linson boards with spines lettered gilt, with pictorial endpapers in all but the final volume, preserved in white pictorial dustwrappers and purple plush-lined cloth-covered slipcase with ribbon pull; pp. [viii], 9-160; [viii], 9-176; [x], 11-172; [x], 11-184; [x], 11-192; [x], 11-171; with line illustrations throughout by Quentin Blake; externally fine with light speckling to the edges of volumes 3, 4 and 5, internally clean and sound throughout, protected by remarkably fresh dustwrappers, 3 of which are unclipped, with a slight horizontal crease to top edge of upper panel of 'Uncle', a faint score mark to upper panel of 'Treacle Trouble', a couple of inconspicuous horizontal scratches to spines, and minor rubbing to upper fore-edge fold of 'Claudius the Camel'; scarce as a set in this condition. First editions; each volume signed in ink by Quentin Blake to the title-page. A few of the 'Uncle' titles are ridiculously elusive which makes assembling a set, in uniform condition, a very difficult task. This popular series of book about the pompous, fabulously wealthy, purple dressing-gown-wearing elephant called Uncle have inspired a cult following across the world. Although ostensibly a "grand, crazy comedy" the stories, it has been claimed, have multiple layers of meaning with some reading it as an exposé on the hypocrisy of society and others a critique of capitalism (Eccleshare. 1001 Children's Books).

        Americans on Everest. [Inscribed / Signed] The official account of the ascent led by Norman G. Dyhrenfurth.

      J.B. Lippincott Company,, 1964. Philadelphia, J.B. Lippincott Company, 1964. 24 cm x 16 cm. XXI, 429 pages. Original Hardcover with dustjacket. With several black-and-white pictures. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Jacket slightly torn. In protective mylar. Signed and inscribed by 4 members of the expedition. James Ramsey Ullman (1907 ? July 5, 1971) was an American writer and mountaineer. He was born in New York. He was not a high end climber, but his writing made him an honorary member of that circle. The books he wrote were mostly about mountaineering and geography. His works include Banner in the Sky, which was a book based on the true story of the first climbing of the Matterhorn (it was filmed in Switzerland as Third Man on the Mountain), and The White Tower (which would star Glenn Ford and Lloyd Bridges). Also Americans on Everest by James Ramsay Ullman, page 195, published by J. B. Lippincott Company 1964, Library of Congress Catalogue #64-14475.nHe was the ghost writer for Tenzing Norgay's autobiography Man of Everest (originally published as Tiger of the Snows). High Conquest was the first of nine books for the J.B. Lippincott company coming out in 1941 followed by The White Tower, River of The Sun, Windom's Way, and Banner in the Sky which was a 1955 Newbery Honor book. All of these titles became small motion pictures.nHe also wrote the short story "Top Man", a story about mountaineers climbing K3, a mountain in India. The story appears in several anthologies. It was originally published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1940. Issue #35.nBeyond his mountaineering books, he wrote "Where the Bong Tree Grows," an account of a year he spent traveling through some of the most remote islands of the South Pacific. Ullman also wrote a novel about the poet Arthur Rimbaud, The Day on Fire (1958).nHe joined the American Mount Everest Expedition 1963 as official historian. Because of health problems he had to stay in Kathmandu. His book Americans on Everest: The Official Account of the Ascent was published in 1964. He died in Boston from cancer on July 5, 1971.

        [Quotations from Chairman Mao].

      Beijing: Central Political Department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, 1964. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 16mo - over 5¾ - 6¾" tall. [Quotations from Chairman Mao]. Peking: Central Political Department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, [May 1964]. 16mo (x mm). [8], 2, 2, 250 pp., including half-title printed in red, title-page printed in red and green, portrait of Chairman Mao printed in sepia, uncorrected calligraphic endorsement leaf of Lin Biao printed in black, and table of contents. Original printed paper wrappers printed in red and black. Protective vintage paper dustjacket pasted on top to the binding titled in Chinese script on front (Quotations from Chairman Mao). Provenance: Training school of Kunming (half-title annotated in Chinese). First and last blanks soiled a bit, otherwise clean and crisp. A fine copy of the rare first printing of the first edition.Created for use by the People's Liberation Army as a pocket handbook of inspirational reading, the book contains short segments taken from Mao's speeches and published writings for use in study groups as lessons for discussion amongst the soldiers. Demand for additional copies within the army required the book to get reprinted several times in 1965 (2nd edition March enlarged to 32 chapters, 3rd edition August with final 33rd chapter added). It is the second most frequently printed book in history, after the Bible, with an estimated five-billion copies produced in more than 100 languages in the past forty-five years. Early printings include a one-page facsimile of Lin's calligraphic endorsement for everyone to study Chairman Mao's writings, but following accusations of Lin's unsuccessful plot to assassinate Mao in September 1971, the government required this page to be torn out in an effort to eradicate Lin's name from modern history. Subsequent copies printed after 1971 no longer include any mention of Lin and most earlier copies that do survive have this page removed. The first printing is slightly taller than all later editions and includes an error found in the earliest form of Lin's calligraphic facsimile endorsement, where a superfluous brush stroke occurred in the 2nd vertical line from the right, 2nd character from the top. It is generally accepted that all copies comprising only thirty chapters and with text ending at page 250 are first editions. The more famous issue in red vinyl cover was simultaneously printed with those in first paper wrappers, but the vinyl took longer to produce and was thus release shortly after. Paper wrapper copies were intended for Army officers whereas those in red vinyl were produced to be shared by brigades of up to eight soldiers. (Schiller, Quotations from Chairman Mao. A short bibliographical Study, the Grolier Club, New York, 2014). Some copies contain textual errors in the final line of p.82 and the first line of p.83. As sheets for the Quotations were printed at several locations throughout China to facilitate faster distribution, no place of publication is stated; and no priority can be established for copies in which the misprints occur and those in which they do not. (Han, Sources and Early Printing History of Chairman Mao's 'Quotations,' Antiquarian Book Review, November 2003). Very Good.

        Barefoot in the Park...

      New York: Random House, 1964. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY NEIL SIMON on the title page, of his first great hit- the play that would launch his career. The basis for the 1967 film starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. "The earliest of Simon's collaborations with director Mike Nichols (who won the Tony Award for Best Director), Barefoot in the Park was an instant hit with both the critics and the public, enjoying a run on Broadway that lasted for almost four years. Howard Taubman, reviewing the play for the New York Times, called it a 'bubbling, rib-tickling comedy' and claimed that Simon exhibited 'the dash of a highly skilled professional writer.' Norman Nadel, in the New York World-Telegram and The Sun, wrote that 'Simon's scintillating dialogue, the cast's spirited playing and Nichols' clear genius as a director of comedy turn this [play] into the merriest evening Broadway has enjoyed in years.' John McClain of the Journal-American summed up the response of many playgoers when he remarked that Barefoot in the Park was, quite simply, the funniest comedy he had ever seen" (Koprince, Understanding Neil Simon). Illustrated with photos of the original production starring Robert Redford.New York: Random House, 1964. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket.

André Hodeir and Gunther Schuller in Grove Music Online. An interesting program, featuring the autographs of some of the best-known musicians in the history of jazz....

        Mythologies Quotidiennes...

      Paris: Musee d'Art Moderne de la ville de Paris, 1964. Plain white card wraps, stapled. Dj of lavender and white paint (looks to be original/unique) and large, black lettering. Multiple sky blue end papers. 28 pp. with bw images. Text in French. Catalogue from the exhibition, Mythologies Quotidiennes (Daily Mythologies), held at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, July to October 1964. With an introductory essay by Gassiot-Talabot, the catalogue of 115 works, and advertisements. "The exhibition in July 1964 at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris marks the symbolic beginning of the movement known as Narrative Figuration. Organized by artists Bernard Rancillac and Herve Telemaque and critics Gérald Gassiot-Talabots and Marie-Claude Dane, the exhibition reveals every artist's pure and formalistic "statement." Willingly using the grotesque, humor, and derision, these painters introduce the presentation with successive scenes or by juxtaposition or transformation of images. This movement began when abstraction was declining and comics, film and photography emerged as arts in their own right. Mythologies Quotidiennes features 34 artists who, like their American counterparts, put contemporary society and its images at the heart of their work. But, unlike their American counterparts, their work is more social and political." Artists included are Alleyn, Arnal, Arroyo, Atila, Berni, Bertholo, Bertini, Bettencourt, Beynon, Brusse, Buri, Cremonini, Dado, Fahlstrom, Foldes, Gaitis, Geissler, Gironella, Golub, Gracia, Kalinowski, Klasen, Kramer, Monory, Pistoletto, Rancillac, Faynaud, Raysse, Recalcati, Requighot, Saint-Phalle, Saul, Telemaque, and Voss. A wonderful copy! VG, two small tears about 1/2" long at top of pverwrap near the spine....

        Mastroianni. Il ritratto

      Sandro Maria Rosso editore, 1964. Folio (cm. 47,5), VI cc. di presentazione, XXXIII tavv. (prima parte, ‘Il ritratto nella scultura di Mastroianni’) e XVIII tavv. (seconda parte, ‘Interpretazione grafica del ritratto di Umberto Mastroianni’). Ritratti originali a piena pagina di Umberto e Marcello Mastroianni, nipote dell’Artista (eseguiti da L. Civerchia). Carte sciolte raccolte in cofanetto editoriale rigido in tela, usurato soprattutto alle cerniere. Carta speciale prodotta dalle Cartiere Miliani di Fabriano. Edizione a tiratura limitata e numerata (ns. esemplare 604/1000). Dedica autografa dell’Artista. Il volume proviene dalla biblioteca del pittore romano Luigi Civerchia. I ritratti qui presenti mostrano l’idea di concepire il libro come un intelligente ed espressivo contenitore di memorie, le proprie innanzitutto, ma anche quelle dei diversi personaggi che egli ritrae, come intrecciandone i destini tra le pagine di uno stesso testo. Vale la pena notare che il nostro pittore ha scelto solo i libri come gallerie per i ritratti. Chi ha visitato qualche sua mostra, tra le tante tenutesi in Italia e all’estero, avrà infatti osservato che nei paesaggi o in altre composizioni le figure umane sono per lo più assenti, o comunque, hanno un ruolo del tutto secondario. E’ quindi una vera scoperta il Civerchia ritrattista, e lo è ancor più considerando la particolarità di esprimersi su di un mezzo singolare come sono le pagine di un libro. Luigi Civerchia è nato a Roma, nel popolare quartiere di Trastevere, nel 1928. Dopo una prima esperienza presso la bottega di uno scultore, continua il suo percorso nell’Atelier di Vittorio Grassi, momento fondante della sua formazione umana ed artistica. Si avvicina poi alla Scuola Romana seguendo con entusiasmo gli insegnamenti dei suoi Maestri ideali: Mafai, Pirandello e Quaglia.
