        An Area of Darkness: An Experience of India

      London: Andre Deutsch, 1964. First Edition of the author's first book in his Indian Trilogy which includes: "An Area of Darkness", "India: A Wounded Civilization", "India: A Million Mutinies Now". Octavo, original boards. Signed by the author. Fine in very good dust jacket. Trinidadian essayist and novelist V.S. Naipaul has won both the 1971 Booker Prize and the 2001 Nobel Prize in Literature. An Area of Darkness is a travelogue detailing Naipaul's trip through India in the early sixties. "The world Naipaul sees is of course no void at all: it is a world dense with physical and social phenomena, brutally alive with the complications and contradictions of actual human endeavour... This world of Naipaul's is in fact charged with what can only be described as a romantic view of reality, an almost unbearable tension between the idea and the physical fact..." (The New York Review of Books).

        The Interrogation

Signed by the author on the title page. Le Clezio won the 2008 Nobel Prize in Literature as an "author of new departures, poetic adventure and sensual ecstasy, explorer of a humanity beyond and below the reigning civilization." The Interrogation follows the interior adventure of solitary young man, Adam Pollo, who concentrates and discovers ways of experiencing as animals, trees. "Le Clézio's verbal felicity is amazing.... we come away awed by his skill in manipulating language and dazzled by his ability to create with words vividly impressionistic paintings" (The New York Times Book Review).

        Sigma Portfolio 2-5, 12, and 15

      Sigma Project [London: Sigma Project. 1964]. Loose mimeographed sheets stapled at one corner with printed rectos and two loose sheets. All but one measuring 8" x 13". Folded from mailing with light wear at a few corners and one with an address stamp and blue smudge, overall near fine or better. After the publication of Cain's Book, Trocchi moved to London with his family and for the next two years focused much of his time on the Sigma Project, consisting of a series of mimeographed portfolio mailings as a way of directly connecting with readers. The intent behind the project was to further his Situationist-influenced theory for cultural revolution based on a focus on one's "inner space" of self-consciousness as a way of influencing society. The Sigma Project included both political works and letters authored by Trocchi, as well as by William Burroughs, Stan Brakage, Michael McClure, and Robert Kelly.All the issues are difficult to obtain and to identify properly, which makes assembling a complete set particularly difficult. This partial set includes:• Sigma Portfolio 2 - Invisible Insurrection of a Million Minds. Written by Trocchi. [1964]. 8pp. Originally published in the Scottish literary journal Saltire Review in 1962. Trocchi lays out his idea behind the Sigma Project. OCLC locates five copies.• Sigma Portfolio 3 - Sigma: A Tactical Blueprint. Written by Trocchi. [1964]. 7pp. Originally printed in City Lights Journal 2. Plan of action. OCLC locates four copies.• Sigma Portfolio 4 -- Potlatch. Unsigned but written by Trocchi. [1964]. [1], 5pp. Solicitation for contributions for an "interpersonal log-book" to be entitled potlatch, along with several pages of Situationist text. OCLC locates three copies.• Sigma Portfolio 5 - Sigma General Information. Second impression. [1964]. 8pp. Anonymous essay discussing the Sigma Project in relation to theories from R.D. Laing, Wallace Berman, William Burroughs, and others. OCLC locates three copy.• Sigma Portfolio 12 - Subscription Form. [1964]. 1p. Brief overview of the Sigma Portfolio which is "outflanking the traditional trap of publishing-house policy, and by means of which the reader gets it, so to speak 'hot' from the writer's pen." OCLC locates one copy.• Sigma Portfolio 15 - [Letter to Potential Subscribers]. [1964]. 1p. List of Sigma Portfolios to date (11), along with a quote from the playwright John Arden on the Sigma Project. OCLC locates one copy. .

        Nuclei and Particles. An Introduction to Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics.W. A. Benjamin: New York & Amsterdam, 1965.

      First edition, second printing, of Segrè's major textbook on nuclear physics, <b>the author's own copy heavily annotated by him throughout</b>, with numerous manuscript additions/revisions in pencil and red and blue crayon. Some 145 pages carry annotations ranging from minor typographical corrections to major textual changes. Inserted in a 16-page printed pamphlet listing the corrections made to the first printing (1964), itself heavily annotated by the author. Segrè shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Owen Chamberlain in 1959 for the discovery of the antiproton.<br/><br/> "Emilio Segrè was born in Tivoli, Rome, on February 1st, 1905, as the son of Giuseppe Segrè, industrialist, and Amelia Treves. He went to school in Tivoli and Rome, and entered the University of Rome as a student of engineering in 1922. In 1927 he changed over to physics and took his doctor's degree in 1928 under Professor Enrico Fermi, the first one under the latter's sponsorship. <br/><br/> "He served in the Italian Army in 1928 and 1929, and entered the University of Rome as assistant to Professor Corbino in 1929. In 1930 he had a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship and worked with Professor Otto Stern at Hamburg, Germany, and Professor Pieter Zeeman at Amsterdam, Holland. In 1932 he returned to Italy and was appointed Assistant Professor at the University of Rome, working continuously with Professor Fermi and others. In 1936 he was appointed Director of the Physics Laboratory at the University of Palermo, where he remained until 1938. <br/><br/> "In 1938 Professor Segrè came to Berkeley, California, first as a research associate in the Radiation Laboratory and later as a lecturer in the Physics Department. From 1943 to 1946 he was a group leader in the Los Alamos Laboratory of the Manhattan Project. In 1946 he returned to the University of California at Berkeley as a Professor of Physics. <br/><br/> "The work of Professor Segrè has been mainly in atomic and nuclear physics. In the first field he worked in atomic spectroscopy, making contributions to the spectroscopy of forbidden lines and the study of the Zeeman effect. Except for a short interlude on molecular beams, all his work until 1934 was in atomic spectroscopy. In 1934 he started the work in nuclear physics by collaborating with Professor Fermi on neutron research. He participated in the discovery of slow neutrons and in the pioneer neutron work carried on in Rome 1934-1935. Later he was interested in radiochemistry and discovered together with Professor Perrier the element technetium, together with Corson and Mackenzie the element astatine, and together with Kennedy, Seaborg, and Wahl, plutonium-239 and its fission properties. <br/><br/> "His other investigations in nuclear physics cover many subjects, e.g., isomerism, spontaneous fission, and lately high-energy physics. Here he, his associates and students have made contributions to the study of the interaction between nucleons and on the related polarization phenomena. In 1955 together with Chamberlain, Wiegand, and Ypsilantis he discovered the antiproton" (nobelprize.org). <br/><br/> "In his later years Segrè turned himself into a first-class historian of physics; his historical surveys, <i>From X-Rays to Quarks: Modern Physicists and Their Discoveries and From Falling Bodies to Radio Waves: Classical Physicists and Their Discoveries</i> and his biography <i>Enrico Fermi: Physicist</i> are widely used" (aip.org). Segrè remained at Berkeley until his death in 1989. <br/><br/> <i>Nuclei and Particles</i> was highly successful: OCLC records 47 separate editions/printings. The third printing of the first edition appeared later in the same year as the present second printing. A second edition appeared in 1977, expanded to 986 pages.. Large 8vo (254 x 178 mm), original publisher's cloth, the author's own copy, with his ink stamp on front free endpaper

        The State Funeral of The Right Honourable Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill K.G., O.M., C.H

      London: Headquarters, London District, Horse Guards, Whitehall, S.W.1, , 1964. Special District Order by Major-General E.J.B. Nelson... General Officer Commanding London District and Major-General Commanding The Household Brigade. Folio (330 × 202 mm). Tan rough cloth-backed, cord-tied binder, purple printed title sheet mounted on the upper board. 152 pages of reproduced typescript with thumb-indexed dividers. 5 additional groups of amendments loosely inserted at the rear. 15 folding maps and plans at the rear. A little rubbed, slightly shaken, a number of pages pulling loose from the cords, as often, but complete and overall very good. Inevitably the first and only edition. The distribution list shows it to be one of 302 copies, this numbered 81, one of two copies for British Railways (Western Region). Churchill's state funeral was the first held for a commoner for over 100 years, the last being for the Duke of Wellington, and was attended, against precedent, by Elizabeth II as reigning monarch. Having confronted the inevitability of his death during his last illness, the British people accepted his death with respectful restraint, over 320,000 filed past the catafalque in Westminster, one million lined the route, and 125,000 paid their respects at the grave in the tiny country churchyard at Bladon on the day following his interment. The folder contains the detailed instructions for the supervision of each stage of the immensely complicated progress of Churchill's body from the lying-in-state at Westminster Hall, to the funeral service at St. Paul's, the embarkation at Tower Hill onto a Port of London launch, and the transfer to the train for the final journey to the family plot at Bladon. The meticulousness of the arrangements - careful estimates of ground space covered on the march for each detachment of the procession, and its total length expressed in terms of its time to pass any given point of 25.7 mins. - is reflected in the minute precision that can be seen in the filmed record of the obsequies. Plans for the event had been put in train - under the code-name "Operation Hope Not" - as long ago as 1959, and had been brought to completion during Churchill's illness in the winter of 1964, which is confirmed by the dating on the index leaf mounted on the front pastedown to November 1964. A fascinating record of the most famous state funeral of modern times, an event described by a contemporary correspondent as "a spectacle of heart-gripping homage."

        FLOWERS FOR HITLER

      Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, (1964)., 1964 "I learn nothing because my mind is stuffed with bodies. . . " Cohen, Leonard. FLOWERS FOR HITLER. Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1964. Octavo. Gilt-lettered black cloth. First Edition of the very elusive hardcover edition of Cohen&#39;s third collection of poetry & his most difficult book to acquire. This is a fine example with clean endpapers & tight unblemished text block, [multiple paper stocks used by McClelland] in a very good or better dustwrapper showing modest wear at the head & heel of the slightly darkened spine panel which is lightly rubbed affecting a few letters. A particularly good copy rarely seen as such these days. In fact over the last 10 years fewer than a handful of FFH have surfaced. $2550 "The first of Cohen&#39;s self-consciously "anti-art" gestures: an attempt, in his own words, to move "from the world of the golden-boy poet into the dung pile of the front-line writer." - Prof. Stephen Scobie. "It&#39;s useful to think of Flowers for Hitler as the author auditioning himself for all the parts in an unwritten play. Useful because it underlines the process of self-recovery and self-discovery that is at the center of these poems. In a jacket-note Cohen says that these poems won&#39;t appeal to the reviewers who praised his previous (second) collection, The Spice Box of Earth (1961). But I suspect that anyone who really liked the latter in all its range of style and substance (that is, not just its lusher surfaces and sounds) will like Flowers for Hitler even better. From the new perspective what looks wrong with the earlier work is a kind of premature coming to terms with himself. In Flowers for Hitler Cohen isn&#39;t so much shifting his ground; he&#39;s trying to unjell himself before it&#39;s too late. He&#39;s taking a more searching and uncompromising look at the poetic substance that he exists on, at all the things that he can remember, imagine, absorb, separate, excrete, transmute, forget." - Milton Wilson, Letters in Canada: 1964 POETRY.

        NOTHING PERSONAL - SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY FROM RICHARD AVEDON

      (AVEDON, RICHARD) (BALDWIN, JAMES). Avedon, Richard & James Baldwin. NOTHING PERSONAL - SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY FROM RICHARD AVEDON. Signed Presentation Copy from the Photographer. Lucerne, SWITZERLAND: C.J. Bucher, 1964. First Edition. Small Folio. Silver Gilt Debossed Boards. Photography Monograph. Fair./No Jacket - As Issued. np, profusely illustrated in b&w gravure. Designed by Marvin Israel. Text in English. "Nothing Personal" is Richard Avedon&#39;s strikingly beautiful 1964 collaboration with noted literary lion James Baldwin. The photographer&#39;s second book, its images primarily hail from "Harper&#39;s Bazaar" and other magazine editorial work from the fifties and sixties. With figures from politics, society, fashion, literature, and the arts, it is a veritable who&#39;s who of power of the mid-Twentieth Century containing many of Avedon&#39;s most famous portraits including Dwight David Eisenhower in close up, the fragile Marilyn Monroe, a smug George Wallace, the pregnant Ted Kennedys in the surf, and many, many more. These are beautifully reproduced in stark black and white gravure, with Marvin Israel&#39;s book design here every bit the equal of the legendary Alexey Brodovitch&#39;s contribution for Avedon&#39;s first work, "Observations". An internally clean and sound example of the 1964 C.J. Bucher first Swiss edition with an English language text lacking a slipcase bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED PRESENTATION "For Dear ... with gratitude ever, Dick Avedon -" in black fountain pen on the verso of the front free endpaper showing some mild brown staining to a few pages along the foredge of the textblock. The binding has a bit of play, and the glossy white boards show some overall wear, soiling and light age-toning with abrasions through to the cardboard at the tips. In addition, the paper covering the spine seems to have separated and subsequently been non-professionally repaired with two overlapping strips of black linen library tape run along its length. All in all, a sharper copy in hand than it describes here of this classic volume. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

He introduced the British audience to some of the greats including Lightning Hopkins, Howling Wolf, Hubert Sumlin and the great Sonny Boy Williamson. Sonny Boy Williamson was to tour the U.K. in front of the Yardbirds with Eric Clapton on Guitar. Hubert Sumlin, died only last year after a long carrer and his funeral costs were paid by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Recently at the White House at a concert celebrating the Blues in front of President Obama, Jagger shared with the audience about loving the blues from an early age, when he often saw Sonny Boy Williamson perform in England. He told how singer /harmonica player Williamson, took note of the blues-loving young bands like the Rolling Stones: "Those English boys, they want to play the blues real bad," he said. "And they do &#150; real bad.". Sonny Boy Williamson also wrote &#39;Eyesight To The Blind&#39; which was the only song on the Tommy soundtrack not written by The Who.

Hughes writes his note on the title page of Durem?s group of poems titled, ?Poems by Ray Durem...1954.? Paul Bremen (1931-2008) is the Dutch born bookseller, writer and publisher whose help Hughes sought on behalf of Durem. Included is Bremen?s soft cover publication of Durem?s ?Take no prisoners,? published in London in 1971. Bremen published three of the typed poems in the group offered here.

Elected in 1940 as one of the 18 "Immortals" of the Swedish Academy, Lagerkvist was as highly influential writer from his twenties into his seventies, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1951 "for the artistic vigour and true independence of mind with which he endeavors in his poetry to find answers to the eternal questions confronting mankind". Signed copies of Lagerkvist&#39;s works are quite scarce and, beyond our shelves, signed copies in English translation are especially so. This copy belonged to actor and decorated WWII Navy Veteran Douglas Fairbanks whose bookplate resides on the front pastedown. A Very Good copy in a Very Good dust jacket and with an excellent Provenance, SIGNED BY PAR LAGERKVIST. QUITE SCARCE.
