        A Spaniard in the Works

      Cape, UK 1965 - 1st Edition 1965. A lovely example of Lennon's second book with his autograph/signed name to the endpaper. Very rare book to be signed and un-dedicated. John Lennon's autograph at the height of Beatle mania was very difficult to obtain. His previous book 'In His Own Write' had a signing session at Foyles in 1964 so the book appears more regular albeit as a reprint. He did not undertake any such commercial signing sessions for this book so they very rarely appear on the open market. Excellent provenance will be made available when purchased. Book is near fine and in lovely square tight condition. Nice sharp corners. A few very light foxing spots to odd pages. Pages very nice and clean. Never issued with a wrapper. A cracking example. More images can be taken upon request. Ref 9312 Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Feste religiose in Sicilia

      Leonardo da Vinci,, Piccolo Orizzonte, 1965. Rilegato tela, sovracoperta (cloth, dust jacket) Testo di Leonardo Sciascia. Fotografie in bianco e nero di Ferdinando Scianna. Brevi note alle immagini a cura del fotografo. Una dedica anonima ad un noto pittore siciliano - dalla cui biblioteca il libro proviene - alla prima pagina bianca . 16mo. pp. 222. Molto Buono (Very Good). Sovraccoperta rinforzata professionalmente lungo i bordi con intervento reversibile in carta Giappone (Anonymous dedication to a well - know Sicilian painter at the first blank page. DJ professionally restored). Prima edizione (First edition). Il volume raccoglie una scelta di immagini scattate da Scianna tra il 1961 e il 1964, che raccontano il mondo popolare di quegli anni, ritraendo i siciliani alle prese con le loro feste. Le celebrazioni religiose, secondo l'interpretazione di Sciascia, più che una connotazione metafisica e spirituale ne avevano una materialista: "che cosa è una festa religiosa in Sicilia? Sarebbe facile rispondere che è tutto, tranne che una festa religiosa (. .) è, innanzitutto, una esplosione esistenziale. Poiché è soltanto nella festa che il siciliano esce dalla sua condizione di uomo solo". E' questo aspetto che si riscontra in pieno negli scatti di Scianna: atti quali il trascinare la lingua a terra o procedere a ginocchioni erano il prezzo per ottenere una certa grazia. Ma i siciliani secondo Sciascia sono un popolo pieno di contraddizioni, e Scianna lo documenta con la ripresa dei riti della settimana santa in cui nei volti di uomini e donne si percepisce lo stupore e la commozione vera per il dolore di una madre. Le immagini intense e drammatiche di donne velate, di incappucciati in processione, di penitenti seminudi in pellegrinaggio sull'Etna, di bambini offerti alla benedizione del sacerdote fecero vincere al libro il prestigioso Premio Nadar. \

Parr & Badger, V.1, pp. 252-53: "Levitt's street pictures of New York children in underprivileged areas ... exemplify the shift from New Deal social documentation to a more personal and elliptical way of looking at life. ...

Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. A very nice example. Mary Oliver was described by The New York Times as "far and away, [America's] best-selling poet." She has won both the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and the National Book Award in 1992. Oliver's poetry has been called an "indefatigable guide to the natural world, particularly to its lesser-known aspects" (Kumin, 1993). "Visionary as Emerson [ she is] among the few American poets who can describe and transmit ecstasy, while retaining a practical awareness of the world as one of predators and prey," reviewed The Nation. Holly Prado of Los Angeles Times Book Review noted that Oliver's work "touches a vitality in the familiar that invests it with a fresh intensity."

        In Cold Blood

      NY: Random House. (1965). His most famous book, a story of the cold-blooded killing of a Kansas family that was shocking in its day for its portrayal of the lives and thoughts of the killers, as well as its graphic violence, and a bestseller that redefined the boundaries between fiction and nonfiction and helped define the New Journalism of the 1960s. Inscribed by Capote to Ruth Ford: "For dearest Ruth/ much love/ Truman." Ford, the film and stage actress, who was the sister of Charles Henri Ford and a longtime friend of William Faulkner's in her native Mississippi, became known for the gatherings she hosted at her apartment at the Dakota building in Manhattan, with guests such as Edward Albee, Tennessee Williams, and Truman Capote, among many others. Ford had invited Capote to join Faulkner and herself for a drink at her apartment in 1951, when Capote was a young, up-and-coming writer and Faulkner was, of course, one of the great American writers of the day, having won the Nobel Prize for Literature a year earlier. In an anecdote recounted in Joseph Blotner's biography of Faulkner, a half-drunk Capote began disparaging Hemingway's latest novel and Faulkner called him up short on it. Ford collaborated with Faulkner of the play "Requiem for a Nun," in which she would star when it opened in 1959. In 1971, she starred in an ill-fated musical adaptation of Capote's The Grass Harp. An excellent association copy: Ford was at the center of the New York literary scene for decades, friends with virtually everyone and, by the time of the publication of this book, a friend of Capote's for at least 15 years. Unsigned, the book is not especially scarce in the first printing -- it had caused a sensation when portions appeared in The New Yorker, and therefore it had a large first printing; however, because of its soft paper dust jacket, it is a book that shows wear readily. There was a signed limited edition done, but signed or inscribed trade editions are relatively uncommon, and good association copies extremely scarce. This copy is fine in a near fine dust jacket with modest wear to the edges and folds, and is now housed in a custom clamshell case. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine.

        In Cold Blood

      Random House, 1965. Rilegato tela, sovracoperta (cloth, dust jacket) A True Account of a Multiple Murder and its Consequences. 8vo. pp. 344. Ottimo (Fine). Prima edizione (First Edition, First Impression). E' solo con questo romanzo, tradotto in italiano "A sangue freddo", che la narrativa di Capote si sviluppò nel senso di una più obiettiva e puntuale analisi dei fatti. L'opera, che ebbe un clamoroso successo commerciale e fu anche portata sullo schermo, si basava su un fatto di cronaca nera realmente avvenuto: la strage di una facoltosa famiglia del Kansas compiuta, apparentemente senza motivo, da due psicopatici più tardi processati e condannati alla pena capitale. Il libro, che fu definito da Capote stesso come appartenente al genere della "nonfiction novel" fu il risultato di 5 anni di attente ricerche sul crimine e sui suoi esecutori, fino a comprendere una precisa e documentata indagine sulle motivazioni sociali e psicologiche che portarono i due assassini al delitto.

The definitive Harvard Classics collection, also known as the Five-Foot Shelf of Books, is a monument to the world's great works of literature and history, and has been eagerly collected since it was first published in 1909. "The Harvard Classics, originally known as Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf, is a 51-volume anthology of classic works from world literature, compiled and edited by Harvard University president Charles W. Eliot that was first published in 1909. Eliot, then President of Harvard University, had stated in speeches that the elements of a liberal education could be obtained by spending 15 minutes a day reading from a collection of books that could fit on a five-foot shelf. (Originally he had said a three-foot shelf.) The publisher P. F. Collier and Son saw an opportunity, and challenged him to make good on this statement by selecting an appropriate collection of works; the Harvard Classics was the result. Eliot worked for one year together with William A. Neilson, a professor of English; Eliot determined the works to be included and Neilson selected the specific editions and wrote introductory notes. Each volume had 400 to 450 pages or so; and the included texts are "so far as possible, entire works or complete segments of the world's written legacies."

      Paris, Jean-Jacques Pauvert, 1965. 64 p broché, couverture illustrée 1965, 1965, in-8, 64 p, broché, couverture illustrée, Maurice Sinet alias Siné, est un dessinateur à l'humour corrosif. Il est connu pour ses dessins de presse et ses caricatures politiques. Sa verve, sujette à controverses, l'amènera à quitter les rédactions de L'Express et de Charlie Hebdo. Son recueil "Complaintes sans paroles", publié en 1955, est récompensé par le Grand Prix de l'humour noir créé par l'écrivain Tristan Maya. Après avoir travaillé à L'Express comme dessinateur politique, il fonde en 1962 son propre journal "Siné Massacre", puis créé "L'Enragé" avec l'éditeur Jean-Jacques Pauvert. De 1981 à 2008, il fait partie de la rédaction de Charlie Hebdo. A 80 ans, il lance un hebdomadaire au ton satirique intitulé "Siné Hebdo", devenu depuis"Siné Mensuel". Haut-le-coeur est un album qui regroupe des dessins, en couleur ou en noir et blanc, dont 6 en double page. Siné peint des petites scènes amusantes, voire absurdes dont la compréhension presque instantanée provoque des éclats de rire. Il quadrille différents sujets d'ordre politique, religieux ou sociétal. Comme le précise Siné dans son avertissement, certains dessins sont "orduriers, d'autres obscènes", et s'il s'amuse à représenter des toilettes dans diverses situations, est-ce peut-être pour donner au lecteur un "haut-le-coeur" cathartique? Cet album était l'exemplaire de Jacques Delarue (1919-2014), résistant, historien et ancien commissaire de Police. Exemplaire truffé -un dessin original portant la signature de Siné - De son surnom "Bob", il signe aussi plusieurs cartes postales envoyées au couple Delarue - quatre tirages argentiques d'époque, lors d'une séance de dédicace de Siné pour son recueil "Complaintes sans paroles". On le voit entouré notamment de Suzanne (sa première épouse), Jacques Delarue et Jean-Jacques Pauvert - Deux autres tirages argentiques d'époque, de petite taille, qui représentent des scènes entre amis - une coupure de dessin de presse de Siné - une carte de voeux de 1967 - un carton d'invitation pour la signature des "Dessins de l'Express" de Siné, "Mon procès" de Georges Arnaud et "Défense politique" de Jacques Vergès - planche cartonnée intitulée "Petit bonhomme Toto aime la Toilette" de Siné

        Feste religiose in Sicilia

      Leonardo da Vinci,, Piccolo Orizzonte, 1965. Rilegato tela, sovracoperta (cloth, dust jacket) Testo di Leonardo Sciascia. Fotografie in bianco e nero di Ferdinando Scianna. Brevi note alle immagini a cura del fotografo. 16mo. pp. 222. Ottimo (Fine). Prima edizione (First edition). Il volume raccoglie una scelta di immagini scattate da Scianna tra il 1961 e il 1964, che raccontano il mondo popolare di quegli anni, ritraendo i siciliani alle prese con le loro feste. Le celebrazioni religiose, secondo l?interpretazione di Sciascia, più che una connotazione metafisica e spirituale ne avevano una materialista: "che cosa è una festa religiosa in Sicilia? Sarebbe facile rispondere che è tutto, tranne che una festa religiosa (. .) È, innanzitutto, una esplosione esistenziale. Poiché è soltanto nella festa che il siciliano esce dalla sua condizione di uomo solo". E? questo aspetto che si riscontra in pieno negli scatti di Scianna: atti quali il trascinare la lingua a terra o procedere a ginocchioni erano il prezzo per ottenere una certa grazia. Ma i siciliani secondo Sciascia sono un popolo pieno di contraddizioni, e Scianna lo documenta con la ripresa dei riti della settimana santa in cui nei volti di uomini e donne si percepisce lo stupore e la commozione vera per il dolore di una madre. Le immagini intense e drammatiche di donne velate, di incappucciati in processione, di penitenti seminudi in pellegrinaggio sull?Etna, di bambini offerti alla benedizione del sacerdote fecero vincere al libro il prestigioso Premio Nadar.

        Mean density of radiation in the metagalaxy and certain problems in relativistic cosmology" (Doroshkevich and Novikov) WITH "The Fate of a Star and the Evolution of Gravitational Energy upon Accretion" (Zel';dovich) WITH "The magnetic fields of collapsing masses and the nature of superstars" (Ginzburg) in Soviet Physics Doklady 9, 1964-1965, pp. 111-113; pp. 195-197; pp. 329-334

      FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH THREE LANDMARK PAPERS housed in one volume, all original wraps bound within. The first, 'Mean density'' by Doroshkevich and Novikov represents the first presentation of cosmic microwave background (CMB, a relic from the beginning of the Big Bang) as a detectable and measureable phenomenon. The second, by Zel'dovich "suggested that active galaxies (of which quasars are the brightest examples) are powered by accretion disks around massive black holes at the center of galaxies" (Wenner Collection). The third paper is by Ginzburg and presents "the first indication that because of the absence of a magnetic field, information might be lost in a black hole" (Kawaler, Stellar Remnants, 284). These papers, all first editions in English, were published the same year as the Russian original. Each paper is considered seminal. In the FIRST PAPER, Doroshkevich and Novikov explored the possibility of measuring the relic radiation that had been predicted by the work of Gamow, Alpher and Herman. Assuming that the Universe had been 'hot' at some point and that the primordial radiation background has to be added to the radiation spectrum one wishes to calculate, they argue that the wavelength of this radiation should be measurable in centimetres and millimetres, thus falling within the range of spectrum that would make its contribution of galaxies is practically zero. Doroshkevich and Novikov's paper, predicted that, measured in centimeter and millimeter bands), the intensity emitted by CMB is far higher than the intensity of all other sources of radiation in the Universe. This meant that within that wavelength range, the CMB "should exceed the radiation of known sources of radio emission by a factor of tens of thousands, even millions" - or be observable (ibid). Arno Penzias described the import of their findings in his Nobel lecture: 'The first published recognition of the relic radiation as a microwave phenomenon [was by] Doroshkevich and Novikov. Although the English translation appeared later the same year in the widely circulated Soviet Physics-Doklady, it appears to have escaped the notice of other workers in this field. This remarkable paper not only points out the spectrum of the relic radiation as a blackbody microwave phenomenon" but also indicates what instrument should be used to do so (ibid). Using the Bell Laboratories radio telescope at Crawford Hill in New Jersey that Doroshkevich and Novikov recommended, CMB was discovered the next year, in 1965. The SECOND PAPER, 'The Fate of a Star' by Zel'dovich, argued "that a black hole is traveling through a cloud of gas - or, equivalently, as seen by the hole a gas cloud is traveling past it. Then streams of gas, accelerated to near the speed of light by the hole's gravity, will fly around opposite sides of the hole and come crashing together at the hole's rear. The crash, in the form of a… a sudden, large increase in density, will convert the gas's huge energy of infall into heat, causing it to radiate strongly. In effect, then, the black hole will serve as a machine for converting some of the mass of infalling gas into heat and then radiation. This 'machine' could be highly efficient, Zel'dovich (concurrently with Salpeter) deduced - far more efficient, for example, then the burning of nuclear fuel" (Thorne, 307-308). Zel'dovich further suggests that accretion onto a compact star might well be a source of energy for X-ray and quasar sources. The THIRD PAPER, 'The magnetic fields' by Vitaly Ginzburg "modeled the magnetic field of a collapsing star and found that the model indicated that the field must disappear behind the black hole horizon" (Wenner). As well, he argued that "when a magnetized star implodes to form a black hole, the hole might well be born with no magnetic field whatsoever" (Thorne, 274). In fact, according to Ginzburg's theorem, "black holes are precluded from having intrinsic magnetic fields" (Ruzmaikin, Magnetic Fields, 272). Arguing that "black holes have neither strong magnetic or electric fields, nor a surface from which charges could be ejected" Ginzburg's work gave the first indication that because of the absence of a magnetic field, information might be lost in a black hole (Kawaler, Stellar Remnants, 284). When a body collapses to form a black hole, "all memory is apparently removed of any particle content or the types of matter that went into making the black hole" (Lang, Astrophysical Formulae, 205). Ginzburg's paper also provides the first hint of what has come to be known the 'no hair theorem' - "the hair being anything that might stick out of the hole to reveal the details from which it formed" (ibid). CONDITION & DETAILS: Soviet Physics Doklady (American Institute of Physics translation of the Proceedings of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR). 4to. pp. 509-1159, continuously paginated.
