      JONATHAN CAPE 1965 - First Edition, First Printing Very good condition book in green printed soft wraps. Most of the uncorrected proofs were printed up in very small quantities of about 500 pieces. DEFINITION OF AN UNCORRECTED PROOF: In publishing jargon, a proof is the preliminary iteration of a book, intended for a limited audience. Its purpose is to allow for final edits. The proofs can also help to build and maintain buzz about a book before its official release date, generate some early reviews and have potential readers eager to get their hands on the title. A galley proof or uncorrected proof may still have errors or areas open to change. It is generally bound differently than the final product, often only spiral-bound, and missing much of the polish of the eventual published version, opting instead for plain, often coarse paper. Inclusion of proposed publication information (date, price, etc.) can also be included. Usually the proof consists of text only, and is devoid of any art or illustration that may be present in the final published version. If a book is successful and does well upon final publication, or if it goes out-of-print early but develops a fan-base or cult following, an uncorrected proof can become a valuable prize for collectors. Part of the appeal is their scarcity, and the fact that they will sometimes have slightly different text from the final piece. (Beth Carswell, ABE BOOKS) Beautiful condition in printed green soft wraps. Slight rubbing to spine and outer edges, small black scuff mark to rear board about the size of a dime (obviously well loved and no doubt was passed about for review). However the binding is firm, the end papers are internal pages are very clean with no stains, no handling marks, no foxing, no bent pages, no writing, and no owner names. Small 1/3¿ (about 3mm) intact tear along seam of the lower spine. Most of the uncorrected proofs were printed up in very small quantities of about 500 pieces. A most unique gift and a scarce addition to a James Bond collection. Beautiful scarce Fleming book in great scarce collectible condition.ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 6 1/4") volume one issued in red with silver lettering to spine and black and silver decorative cover; volume two issued in sea green with silver lettering to spine. Inscribed by Jacqueline Piatigorsky(Betts: 25-340; 25-388) First editions.Volume one annotated by Samuel Reshevsky and other participants. All 56 games, annotated, with an index of openings. Each competitor annotated the game he considered his best and Reshevsky the remainder. Volume two annotated by Jan H Donner, Tigran Petrosian, Robert Fischer, Lajos Portisch, Boris Ivkov, Samuel Reshevesky, Bent Larsen Minguel Najdorf, Wolfgang Unzicker. Introduction by Gregor Piatigorsky. All 90 games annotated with an index of openings. Jacqueline was born in Paris, France, to the famed Rothschild banking family. A nurse taught her to play chess at an early age, when Jacqueline was recovering from a childhood illness. In her 1988 memoir, Jump in the Waves, she wrote that her nurse, Miss Coque, told Jacqueline that: "...with a chess set, it is impossible to be bored." More than a salvation from dullness, the game soon became both a passion and a refuge to Jacqueline. Though she wrote of feeling neglected by her parents and oppressed by a nanny during her childhood, chess offered her an opportunity to forge her own identity independent of her famous family name. In 1937 Jacqueline married Gregor Piatigorsky, a world-renowned cellist. The two immigrated to the United States with their daughter Jephta at the outset of World War II, first settling in Elizabethtown, New York, where their son Joram was later born. Though she had not received any formal chess training, her desire to compete led her to participate in correspondence chess tournaments sponsored by Chess Review. After another series of moves, Jacqueline and her family settled in Los Angeles, California. There, Gregor joined the faculty of the music department at UCLA, while Jacqueline became further immersed in the world of chess. At an auction, she met International Master Herman Steiner, who after learning of her skill, encouraged her to compete in tournaments over the board. He was instrumental in the flourishing of her playing career on the national level, recommending that she be invited to the 1951 U.S. Women?s Chess Championship. After his death in 1955, Jacqueline took over the management of his chess club, the Hollywood Chess Group, and renamed it the Herman Steiner Chess Club in his honor. Jacqueline soon rose to the top of the field of women?s chess and participated in the U.S. Women?s Championships six times in the 1950s and 1960s. Her best result occurred in 1965, when she won second place behind Gisela Gresser. She also defeated her rival, Woman International Master Mona May Karff in such a captivating manner that the New York Times printed their game. Jacqueline took part in another historic first for women?s chess in 1957, representing the United States in the inaugural Women?s Chess Olympiad in Emmen, the Netherlands, with teammate Gisela Gresser. Jacqueline played on second board, and the team won a bronze medal in the historic competition. Later that same year, she took her first step in the arena of chess promotion, serving as the chairperson for the U.S. Women?s Chess Championship, which was held in Los Angeles and sponsored by the Herman Steiner Chess Club. During the mid-to-late 1960s, Jacqueline participated in tournaments less frequently. However, over the course of the same decade, she dedicated herself more fully to chess promotion, first co-sponsoring a match between former child prodigy Grandmaster (GM) Samuel Reshevsky and rising star GM Bobby Fischer. Also sponsored by the American Chess Foundation, the match was held in both New York and Los Angeles. The match ended prematurely over a disagreement over the start time for one of the games?"Jacqueline had wanted a Sunday game to begin earlier both so that she could attend one of Gregor?s concerts and accommodate the travel needs of out-of-town audience members. Fischer declined to play at the earlier time, and the game was declared a forfeit. Fischer refused to play the remainder of the match, which was a disappointment to Jacqueline and the other tournament organizers. In the wake of this event, she formed a close friendship with Samuel Reshevsky, who became her coach. Despite her early setback, Jacqueline?s interest in chess promotion was not dampened, and she established the Piatigorsky Foundation, which had as its goal to boost chess culture in the United States. At the time, the idea of a philanthropic chess organization was so novel that the Internal Revenue Service denied the group?s first application for not-for-profit status. However, she persevered and the Piatigorsky Foundation became renowned for its support of American chess both on elite and local levels. The Foundation?s first and most famous venture was the organization of the 1963 Piatigorsky Cup tournament. This competition attracted the best American and international players. Jacqueline organized it at the urging of Gregor, who said that in the United States there was, "too much emphasis on physical sports and not enough on the intellectual...A country like ours has an obligation not to be second to anyone." However, it was Jacqueline?s attention to detail and persistence that made the event legendary. The competition was held again in 1966, and its success prompted the Los Angeles Times to name Jacqueline its "Woman of the Year." Piatigorsky Cup Tournaments:The 1963 and 1966 Piatigorsky Cup tournaments rank among the strongest chess competitions ever held on American soil. They are on a short list that includes New York 1924, New York 1927, Dallas 1957, and the 2013 Sinquefield Cup. Held during the Cold War, when tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union were high, the Piatigorsky Cups represented a triumph of diplomacy. Jacqueline and Gregor Piatigorsky faced a daunting task in trying to have Soviet players compete in both events, something that had happened only once before in 1954, when the Soviet Union and United States played a team match in New York. That the Piatigorskys succeeded was a testament to their hard work and persistence, and resulted in Tigran Petrosian competing in both events. This was the first time a reigning World Chess Champion had participated in an individual competition in the United States since Alexander Alekhine played in Pasadena, California, in 1932. Both the 1963 and 1966 tournaments were double round-robin competitions in which all participants played against each other twice. Jacqueline produced an elegant trophy for the events that featured a "love cup" designed by Tiffany & Co. as its centerpiece. The cup is flanked by two Régence-style chess pieces, while the base has plaques with spaces for the names of the winners. The 1963 event, held at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California, included eight competitors from five different nations and offered a prize fund of $10,000. The two Soviet players, Tigran Petrosian and Paul Keres, triumphed over the rest of the field and shared the top prize. The exciting competition attracted a large audience. Bobby Fischer participated in the 1966 tournament, ensuring that the top American talent of the period was represented in the competition. It also meant that the field of ten players in the 1966 event contained one World Chess Champion (Petrosian) as well as two future ones (Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky). Fischer had declined an invitation to the first Cup, still unhappy about his aborted 1961 match against Samuel Reshevsky, which Jacqueline had cosponsored. However, by 1966 the sore feelings had subsided, and his presence and play made this Cup an electrifying event. After a strong start followed by a disastrous performance mid-tournament, Fischer mounted an amazing comeback to tie with the tournament leader, Spassky, in the standings. Their game in the penultimate round attracted a record 900 spectators and served as a preview of the excitement the two would generate six years later in their epic 1972 World Chess Championship match in Reykjavik, Iceland. The two played to a hard-fought draw. Spassky then won his last game against Jan Hein Donner, who was at the bottom of the standings, while Fischer?s game against Petrosian ended in a draw. Spassky achieved a narrow victory over Fischer, winning $5000 from the $20,000 prize fund and a smaller version of the Piatigorsky Cup trophy. The Piatigorsky Cups were not only elite tournaments, but they also broke new ground in making chess competitions more spectator-friendly. The 1963 event followed traditions that had existed for decades, with wall boys moving the pieces on large demonstration boards for the audience. Periodically these same wall boys would manually adjust clocks mounted next to the demonstration boards, giving the audience a rough idea of how much time each player had used. This formula worked reasonably well, but Jacqueline, known for her attention to detail, wanted to improve this system for the second event. She aimed to ensure that everyone that attended the tournament would be able to see the action, even if they were seated in the back of the playing hall. To this end, she developed a projector system that would make the moves of each game clearly visible. By the time of the second tournament, held in Santa Monica, California, in 1966, she had designed and perfected the setup. This innovation, as well as her creation of electric wall-mounted clocks that kept precise measurements of each player?s time, turned out to be both novel and necessary in the second competition. The second Piatigorsky Cup consistently drew crowds of 600 to 700, peaking at 900 spectators near the end of the event.Condition:Both copies inscribed to Michael Jeffreys by Piatigorsky on front end papers. First Piatigorsky Cup with group picture of Jacqueline, child students and Jeffreys tipped to half title. Jefferys business card laid in else better than very good copies in near fine jackets.

        A Way of Seeing: Photographs of New York by Helen Levitt with an essay by James Agee

      New York: The Viking Press, 1965. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. This is a first edition, first printing of the critically acclaimed photobook, A Way of Seeing: Photographs of New York published by The Viking Press, New York in 1965. A Way of Seeing was Helen Levitt\'s first published collection of photographs and features 50 incredible gravure plates of her pictures taken on the streets of Yorkville, Harlem and the Lower East Side. In The Photobook: A History, Martin Parr and Gerry Badger write, Levitt\'s photographs are beautiful--major underrated works. Like Henri Cartier-Bresson, she achieves a rare balancing act: her pictures have sentiment without being sentimental, always maintaining an objective distance...The casual observer of these pictures, dazzled by their poetry, could easily miss the harsher realities masked by the surface warmth and joie de vivre. The New York Times stated, Helen Levitt was the first American photographer to fully comprehend the essence of Henri Cartier-Bresson\'s photographic message and put it into practice. Like Cartier-Bresson, she understood how to combine intuition and intellect to forge sophisticated, lyrical compositions from commonplace events. Measuring approximately 7 inches x 9.5 inches, the book is oblong and bound in the original black cloth boards in a photographically illustrated dust jacket. The condition of the book is Near Fine+ with very minor age toning to the edges. The dust jacket is price clipped and in Near Fine condition with a bit of wear to the tips, a 1 inch crease on the upper right front corner, and very minor loss at the spine head. Overall, this is a gorgeous copy of an exceptional photobook classic. Cited in all three reference books on photobooks: The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century by Andrew Roth, The Photobook: A History by Parr and Badger, and The Open Book by Andrew Roth.

        Yasuzo Nojima: Posthumous Works (First Edition)

      Tokyo: The Committee for the Publication of Yasuzo Nojima\'s Posthumous Works, 1965. Hardcover. Near Fine. This is a rare first edition, first printing of the highly influential photobook \"Yasuzo Nojima: Posthumous Works\" self published in 1965 and edited by The Committee for the Publication of Yasuzo Nojima\'s Posthumous Works. Yasuzo Nojima is considered one of the most important and influential photographers in the history of modern Japanese photography. In a 1999 essay, the noted photography critic Richard Phillips wrote, \"In the late 1920s Nojima\'s work began to change from mannered pictorialism to simple, subtly lit and seductive portraits and nude shots to produce some of the most enigmatic images seen in pre-World War II Japan. The Japanese word for photography is shanshin, means to \"reproduce reality\". Nojima\'s images transcend the mechanical reproduction of reality and uncover truths not seen or understood by previous Japanese photographers. Against the convention of mainly using western women or celebrities as models, Nojima chose unglamorous, earthy Japanese women for his portraits. The carefully composed but simple images reject the overblown flattery of the pictorialists and attempt to unlock the inner soul of the subject. In a notebook entry, titled \"Fictions and True Stories\", Nojima, wrote, \"What they call art photography is nothing more than a catalog of the absentminded, the vague, the falsely significant or deep, the diluted, and the weak. They are therefore not the qualities the age demands.\" Ryuichi Kaneko and Ivan Vartanian in their reference work on Japanese Photobooks, \"Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 70s\" provide some insight into the scarcity of the book, \"This book represents an appraisal of Nojima in a postwar context and was published privately as a catalog accompanying a commemorative exhibition following his death in 1964. When it was published, it received little response from the general public; indeed, only those who had some relationship, usually direct, with Nojima were aware of it. As a commemorative item it was not available for retail sale, but was circulated among photographers and photography critics.\" Containing 52 monochrome photographs printed in collotype and measuring approximately 10 x 10.5 inches, the book is bound in white linen covered boards (no dust jacket as issued) and housed in a paper covered board slipcase. The condition of the book is Near FINE with the front and rear board glue marks visible and a small crease to the upper edge of the first 10 text pages. The paper covered board slipcase is in Good condition with soiling, age toning, puckering, and some paper loss and separation to the paper fold on one side. Overall, this is a highly collectible copy of an extremely scarce photobook title that is rarely available. Cited in the reference work on Japanese Photobooks, \"Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 70s\" by Ryuichi Kaneko and Ivan Vartanian.

In a number of volumes these are confined to the contents leaves and for half-titles but there is a larger section in the first volume and a couple of small sections in later volumes. The plates are all original apart from a few in later volumes. The previous owner seems to have been very fussy about the look of the text and the binding is of a high standard also.
