Superb test of Japan made especially for The Story of Exodus, published in 1966, Chagall painted the 24 lithographs inset printed by Mourlot. Fernand Mourlot, undoubtedly the best artisan lithographer of the twentieth century, was naturally the printer and the friend of the greatest artists of his time. "Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Miró, Braque, Dubuffet, Léger, Giacometti ... have enriched their own expressions and contemporary art a new area of ??research. With Mourlot, and thanks to him, lithography has acquired both personality and future. " (Pierre Cabanne, in fifty years of lithography). Already printer of the two volumes of the Bible illustrated by Chagall, Mourlot contributed to the formation of the artist in the art of lithography in the 1950s it was at this time that Chagall indeed begins to attend workshop Mourlot to learn the lithographic processes and he became friends with the artisans of printing, including Charles Sorlier. So is this the top of his game as Chagall realizes this Exodus story that coincides with the completion of his immense lithographic and pictorial work on the Bible began in 1930 at the initiative of Ambroise Vollard.

La sua opera pittorica è rapidamente influenzato da questo tema, come evidenziato nel 1908 Sacra Famiglia. Tenuto conto di questa predilezione per soggetti religiosi, il suo amico il mercante d'arte Ambroise Vollard commissionato nel 1930 una serie di llustrations sulla Bibbia. Questo lavoro è l'origine di un ciclo decorativo, il Messaggio Biblico, completata nel 1966, lo stesso anno ha pubblicato la storia dell'Esodo. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Lithographie originale en couleur, une des 15 épreuves imprimées sur papier japon impérial et réservées à l'artiste et à ses collaborateurs, seul tirage avec 20 autres japon et 250 Arches. Epreuve non signée, comme toutes les épreuves de cette série, hormis le frontispice. Superbe épreuve sur Japon réalisée spécialement pour The Story of Exodus paru en 1966, dont Chagall réalisa les 24 lithographies hors-texte imprimés par Mourlot. Fernand Mourlot, incontestablement le meilleur artisan lithographe du XXeme siècle, fut naturellement l'imprimeur et l'ami des plus grands artistes de son temps. "Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Miró, Braque, Dubuffet, Léger, Giacometti...ont enrichi leurs expressions propres et l'art contemporain d'un domaine de recherches nouveau. Avec Mourlot, et grâce à lui, la lithographie a acquis à la fois une personnalité et un avenir." (Pierre Cabanne, in Cinquante années de lithographie). Déjà imprimeur des deux volumes de la Bible illustrée par Chagall, Mourlot contribua à la formation de l'artiste à l'art de la lithographie dans les années 1950. C'est à cette époque que Chagall commence en effet à fréquenter l'atelier de Mourlot afin d'apprendre les procédés lithographiques et qu'il se lie d'amitié avec les artisans de l'imprimerie, notamment Charles Sorlier. Ainsi est-ce au sommet de son art que Chagall réalise cette histoire de l'Exode qui coincide avec l'achèvement de son immense travail lithographique et pictural sur la Bible entamé en 1930 à l'initiative d'Ambroise Vollard. Ce Cycle décoratif intitulé Le Message Biblique sera d'ailleurs à l'origine de la création du Musée Marc Chagall, originellement Musée national du message biblique Marc-Chagall. Rarissime épreuve originale imprimée sur Japon, le plus beau papier et le meilleur pour les gravures en couleur.

        The Journal of Beatrix Potter from 1881 to 1897

      Frederick Warne & Co Inc., LONDON & NEW YORK 1966 - From the inside jacket: This Journal, which is a remarkable document, was written by Beatrix Potter only for her own eyes. It gives a first-hand account of Victorian life in the late 19th century, and throws light on Beatrix Potter between the ages of 15 and 30, during which period comparatively little has hitherto been known. It shows how her writing matured as she passed from girlhood to woman-hood, and brings out her powers of observation, her shrewd judgement of human character, her keen sense of humour and her appreciate of nature and art. - The volume is illustrated with facsimile pages from the Journal, examples of her drawings and water colours, and photographs of the Potter family and some of the places mentioned in the Journal. There are 28 illustrations in colour and 39 in monochrome, and the volume includes Family Trees and a comprehensive index. - One of the nice things about this book, is that it is signed and dedicated by Leslie Linder to Mr. P. Shaffer [who was a well known English playwright and screenwriter] - States on the first blank endpage: 'For Mr P. Shaffer. With Kind Regards - from Leslie Linder. July 11th 1966'. - Condition: The original dustjacket houses this book. It retains the price to inner front prelim; 63/- NET, which was very expensive in 1966. The condition is not great; having creasing, general soiling and several chips. I have now housed this in a removable archival sleeve. The green faux leather boards with gold gilt lettering the the spine and decoration to the front board are in a beautiful condition. The dustjacket has most certainly served this book well and kept the boards immaculate. Page block is tight. End-pages are of a lightly mottled blue/gray colour and apart from the Leslie Linder dedication to the front, the end pages are in a beautifully clean condition. This is a heavy book with 448 pages and it is lavishly illustrated with drawings and photographs, it really is a beautiful work. Few areas of spotting and foxing. - Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days. - Thanks for your interest. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Brandes & Durkan A2b. Fine ¶ A collection of 34 poems largely concerned with rural life, often in the context of childhood experiences and the formulation of adult identities and intimate relationships. It includes "Digging," "Death of a Naturalist," "Blackberry-Picking," among others. "Seamus Heaney has been, for good or ill, internationally the most prominent and the most popular Irish poet of the latter part of the twentieth century and the first part of the twenty-first. . . . His first two collections, Death of a Naturalist and Door into the Dark [a signed copy of which we also have on offer], largely written before the renewed outbreak of the so-called 'Troubles' in 1968, show Heaney alerting his audience to the violent history of colonisation on his native ground, but preoccupied also by the rhythms of life in a rural setting remembered from his childhood. He also, in a Wordsworthian manner, focuses upon the sources and resources of his own poetic voice and power." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.

        3 ms. Briefe mit eigenh. U. Locarno-Monti, 1966-1968.

      1966. Zusammen 3 SS. 4to. An Gerhard Bormann, Oberstaatsanwalt i. R., den er u. a. um Rat in Fragen eines Fernsehspiels (wohl "Die Begnadigung", 1968) ersucht: "Wie Sie aus jener Zeitungsnotiz erfahren haben, handelt es sich grundsätzlich um den Fall Halsmann - doch hat Halsmann sich inzwischen nach mehreren Jahrzehnten zum erstenmal wieder an mich gewandt mit der verzweifelten Bitte, ihn gegen eine Identifikation mit dem Protagonisten unseres Fernsehspiels zu schützen, es würde sonst für ihn und seine jetzigen Lebensumstände katastrophale Folgen haben. Ich habe dementsprechend alles ihn persönlich Betreffende verfremdet - hinlänglich verfremdet, hoffe ich - bei voller Beibehaltung der Tatbestände - hoffend, daß es nur mehr ganz wenige Menschen gibt, die sich an diesen Fall tatsächlich erinnern. Außerdem habe ich [...] das 'Krimi-Element' nach Möglichkeit in den Hintergrund gerückt und die politischen Implikationen in den Vordergrund gezogen, da wir nicht einen Kriminalprozeß zeigen wollen [...]" (7. II. 1967). - Der jüdische Zahnarztsohn Philippe Halsmann war 1928 in zwei spektakulären Indizienprozessen des Mordes an seinen Vater schuldig gesprochen, zwei Jahre später allerdings begnadigt worden. Anschließend nach Paris ziehend und ein Photostudio eröffnend, wurde Halsmann als Prominentenphotograph in den USA (wohin er 1940 vor den Nationalsozialisten geflohen war) berühmt. Der deutsche Journalist Martin Pollack recherchierte knapp ein dreiviertel Jahrhundert später akribisch die verworrenen Umstände von Todesfall und Prozeß, mußte aber die Frage, ob Philippe Halsmann - der zeitlebens kein Wort über den Prozeß verlor - wirklich der Täter war, gleichfalls unbeantwortet lassen. - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. bzw. ms. Briefkopf.

        Octopussy and the Living Daylights.

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1966. An UNCORRECTED PROOF copy of the first edition. In printed green wrappers and the pictorial dust-jacket which differs considerably to the published version. The text features some significant differences within the preliminaries leaves, plus literals and minor variations throughout. A very good copy of the book with some toning to edges and extremities, in a fine copy of the jacket (toned at spine). I would suggest the book was read/reviewed away from the oversized wrapper, which shows little signs of wear. An attractive copy.

Ou supplement du catalogue de Thycho, qui montre les longitudes & latitudes des estoilles fixes du Pole Antartique, lesquelles ont esté cachées à Tycho dans l'orison d'Uranibourg, calculées avec un soin tres-exact suivant leurs distances, & corrigées jusques à la fin de l'année 1677. Avec les observations faites en l'Isle de Sainte Helene .Paris, Jean Baptiste Coignard, 1679. 12mo. With 12 abstract (rather than pictorial) zodiac signs. Contemporary French sprinkled calf, gold-tooled spine and board edges. The boards are 5 mm thick, but each has a large panel hollowed out on the inside, perhaps to hold astronomical aids of some sort.

      - Armitage, Edmond Halley, (1966), pp. 31-32; Cook, Edmond Halley: charting the heavens and the seas (1997), p. 78; DSB VI, pp. 67-72. Rare first French edition of the first major work by Edmond Halley (1656-1742) translated from the Latin by the astronomer Augustin Royer. A precocious child, Halley became assistant to John Flamsteed at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich in 1675. In 1676 he travelled to the remote South Atlantic island Saint Helena in order to set up an observatory where he set up a more than 7-metre telescope and a sextant with a radius of more than 1 1/2 metres (with telescopic sights) on the top of a 680 metre hill there and map the stars of the southern hemisphere, still not well known in Europe. He also observed a transit of Mercury. On his return to England in 1678, at the age of 22, he published his important observations in the first (Latin) edition of the present work, Catalogus stellarum Australium, sive supplementum catalogi Tychonici, London, 1678. It was a pioneering work not only because it covered the southern hemisphere, but because it was the first printed star catalogue to give telescopically determined positions. According to Cook, the present French translation was published as a supplement to Royer's Carte du ciel, also published in 1679, which covered only stars observable from Europe. Also in 1678 Halley drew up a planisphere, and the Royal Society, impressed by both, elected him as a fellow. Halley, astronomer, geophysicist, mathematician, meteorologist and physicist, was one of the most innovative thinkers of his day, bringing theory and practice together. He is best known as an early adherent of Newton's idea that comets following the same laws as planets, and he correctly concluded that at least some followed elliptical orbits, while Newton had favoured parabolic paths. By computing their orbits from contemporary and historical accounts he successfully predicted the 1758 return of the one now known as Halley's comet.Although Cook calls for an accompanying planisphere, it and a plate with four figures rarely appear as part of the book, whether in the Latin or the French edition, and the book itself does not call for either. They appear to have been separate publications, sometimes found accompanying the book. The hollowed boards of the present binding may have been intended to hold them as loosely inserted folded additions (there is no sign that anything was ever attached). The Earl of Maccelsfield's copy, with his 1860 armorial bookplate, and his embossed stamp on the title-page and 2 following leaves. The second Earl of the second creation, George Parker (ca. 1697-1764) was a leading astronomer and president of the Royal Society. In good condition. With a chip at the top of spine and the hinges worn. First French edition of Edmond Halley's first major work.

        Program for the Second Piatigorsky Cup: International Grandmaster Chess Tournament July 17 to August 15, 1966

      Santa Monica: Piatigorsky Cup Committee, 1966. 16 unpaginated pages with facsimiles, photographs. Octavo (8 1/2" x 5 3/4") bound in original publisher's spiral spine with red wrappers and cup in silver and black to cover. Signed by all participants next to their photograph in the program along with a short biography of each contestant. (Not listed in Betts) First edition.After the success of the First Piatigorsky Cup (1963), the second was organized by Gregor and Jacqueline Piatigorsky in Santa Monica, California at the Miramar Hotel from July 17-August 15, 1966, with Isaac Kashdan directing. The stellar field included the current and next two World Champions plus a slew of Candidates-level grandmasters in a double-round robin event: Jan Hein Donner, Robert James Fischer, Borislav Ivkov, Bent Larsen, Miguel Najdorf, Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian, Lajos Portisch, Samuel Reshevsky, Boris Spassky, Wolfgang Unzicker. The Piatigorskys invited both Reshevsky and Fischer in spite of the Fischer - Reshevsky (1961) match fiasco. The 1966 Piatigorsky Cup tournament ranks as on of the strongest chess competitions ever held on American soil. It is on a short list that includes New York 1924, New York 1927, and the Sinquefield Cups. Held during the Cold War, when tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union were high, the Piatigorsky Cup represented a triumph of diplomacy. The tournament was a double-robin competition in which all participants played each other twice. The Piatigorskys produced an elegant trophy for the event that featured a "love cup" designed by Tiffany & Company as it centerpiece. With Bobby Fischer participating in the event, ensured that the top American talent of the period was represented in the competition. It also meant that the field of ten players contained one World Champion (Petrosian) as well as two future ones (Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky). 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 a hard fought draw. Spassky then won his lat game against Jan Hein Donner, who was at the bottom of the standings, while Fisher's game against Petrosian ended in a draw. Spassky achieved a narrow victory over Fischer, winning $5000.Condition:Some of the combs in the spiral binder chipped off else a near fine copy.

Doctorow (1931-2015) was one of the most important American writers of the 20th century.

        SAUL BASS SILKSCREEN / SECONDS (1966)

      Paramount / Art Krebs Studio 1966 - Vintage original 35 x 25" (87 x 62 cm.) poster, USA. Rock Hudson, Frank Campanella, John Randolph, Frances Reid, dir: John Frankenheimer; Paramount. Now a cult classic, this horror thriller initially met with extreme criticism. A middle age man displeased with a life that is going nowhere is given a chance to fake his own death and physically become a new person. Our friend, poster collector and dealer Daniel Strebin, provided this information: About a decade ago, he received consignments of Saul Bass silkscreens from the Bass estate. He personally saw invoices for some of them which were printed around 1965. Most of the silkscreens were produced at Art Krebs Studio in Los Angeles. Bass continued to have silkscreens created up until around 1980. All of the silkscreen editions appear to have been in editions of between 50-150. It also seems that once an edition was exhausted, Bass did not make a second edition; as a result, all of these art silkscreens are very rare indeed. Bass never intended for these posters to be sold -- they were intended to be given away. Since he was frequently frustrated with the compromises the film studios inflicted on his magnificent modernist designs, the silkscreens were intended to represent his imagery in its purest possible form. Poster is unused and stored unrolled. Minor edge and corner handling only, JUST ABOUT FINE.

It "provides a savvy critique of gender and class relations in Cold War America, a psychological journey through illness and recuperation, a complex exploration of female identity . . . Although Plath dismissed the book as a 'potboiler' when describing it to her mother, probably because she knew it would hurt her mother's feelings, she felt excited while writing it, and it remains an impressive achievement today."

Corigliano's scores, now numbering over one hundred, have won him the Pulitzer Prize, the Grawemeyer Award, four Grammy Awards, and an Academy Award ("Oscar") and have been performed and recorded by many of the most prominent orchestras, soloists, and chamber musicians in the world. naxos.com. "My 'Goldberg Variation,' Fancy on a Bach Air, is for unaccompanied cello. It transforms the gentle arches of Bach's theme into slowly soaring arpeggi of almost unending phrase-lengths. Its dual inspiration was the love of two extraordinary people and the solo cello suites of a great composer - both of them strong, long-lined, passionate, eternal, and for me, definitive of all that is beautiful in life." johncorigliano.com....
