        11:02 Nagasaki

      Tokyo: Shashindojin-sha, 1966. Spine toned, else near fine in photo-illustrated boards and original cardboard slipcase, toned at the edges and extremities. (Lacking the original acetate overlay.). First Edition. Small quarto. SIGNED by Tomatsu. One of the cornerstone books of postwar Japanese photography. In this brilliantly edited volume, Tomatsu moves away from a purely representational depiction of the horrors of Japan's defining moment, focusing equally on the abstract tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki rather than just human deformity. In many ways, the cover image of a watch stopped cold at 11:02 is more chilling than the profile of a scarred bride on her wedding day. (Parr / Badger, v1, 276-277; Open Book 226-227; Auer 454).

        Winston S Churchill, The Official Biography, full set of 8 main text volumes

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Co., 1966. First edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good plus. Here is a full set of 8 U.S. editions of the main text volumes of Winston Churchill's Official Biography. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, begun by Randolph Churchill and completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life. The eight, massive main text volumes were originally published between 1966 and 1988. The British and U.S. first editions of the eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. The British first editions were bound in solid red cloth. These U.S. editions were more elaborately bound, with tan linen spines over blue buckram boards with blue spine title blocks printed in red and gilt. The bindings also feature head and foot bands and red ruled transitions at the border between the tan linen and blue buckram. The final three volumes were issued in illustrated dust jackets, while the dust jackets of the first five volumes were issued in un-illustrated solid colors, similar to their British first edition counterparts. Here is a full set of U.S. first editions in dust jackets. This set claims nearly 18 inches of shelf space, weighs more than 26 pounds, and fills nearly 8,700 pages. Volumes III-VII are first edition, first printing, while Volume I is a first edition, third printing and Volume II is a first edition, second printing. All eight volumes are in near fine or better condition in dust jackets ranging from very good plus to fine. All eight bindings are square, clean, and tight. We note only a few small corner bumps. All contents are bright and clean with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. All dust jackets are unclipped, retaining original front flap prices and showing no losses. We note light wear to extremities on a few dust jackets and some sunning of the Volume IV jacket spine. The balance of the jacket spines - including the particularly fade-prone Volume V jacket - remain unfaded. All eight dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Please note that this is a large and heavy set that will likely require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A301a-h.

Given that Percy and Horgan were the most widely read American Catholic novelists of their generation, this is an important association copy.

        Archive of posters and ephemera documenting the gay and lesbian-themed films of Rainer Maria Fassbinder

      Various cities: Various Publishers. A collection of 26 posters and other ephemera documenting four key gay and lesbian-themed films by director Rainer Maria Fassbinder. During Fassbinder's short but extremely prolific career, he took on an extraordinary variety of subjects, with post-War West Germany as his principal palette. He was a rebel whose life and art was marked by gross contradictions: though openly homosexual, he married twice; one of his wives acted in his films and the other served as his editor. Accused variously by detractors of being anti-communist, a male chauvinist, anti-Semitic, and even anti-gay, he completed 44 projects between 1966 and 1982, the majority of which can be characterized as highly intelligent social melodramas. Fassbinder's prodigious output was matched by a wild, self-destructive libertinage that earned him a reputation as the enfant terrible of the New German Cinema (as well as its central figure.) Known for his trademark leather jacket and grungy appearance, Fassbinder cruised the bar scene by night, looking for sex and drugs, yet maintained a flawless work ethic by day. Actors and actresses recount disturbing stories of his brutality toward them, yet his pictures demonstrate his deep sensitivity to social misfits and his hatred of institutionalized violence. Some find Fassbinder's cinema needlessly controversial and avant-garde, while others accuse him of surrendering to the Hollywood ethos. Mainly it is clear that he drew forth strong emotional reactions from all he encountered, both in his personal and professional lives, and left behind a provocative and lasting artistic legacy. Success was not immediate for Fassbinder. His first feature length film, a gangster movie called "Love is Colder Than Death" (1969) was greeted by catcalls at the Berlin Film Festival. His next piece, "Katzelmacher" (1969), was a minor critical success, garnering five prizes after its debut at Mannheim. It featured Jorgos, an emigrant from Greece, who encounters violent xenophobic slackers in moving into an all-German neighborhood. This kind of social criticism, featuring alienated characters unable to escape the forces of oppression, is a constant throughout Fassbinder's diverse oeuvre. In subsequent years, he made controversial films about human savagery such as the television film "Pioneers in Ingolstadt "(1971) and "Whity" (1971) before scoring his first domestic commercial success with "The Merchant of Four Seasons" (1971). This moving portrait of a street vendor crushed by betrayal and his own futility is considered a masterpiece, as is his first international success, "Ali: Fear Eats the Soul" (1974). With a wider audience for his efforts, however, some critics contend that Fassbinder began to sell out with big budget projects such as "Despair "(1978), "Lili Marleen" (1981) and "Lola" (1981). In retrospect, however, it seems that the added fame simply enabled Fassbinder to explore more diverse kinds of filmmaking, including such "private" works as "In a Year with 13 Moons "(1978) and "The Third Generation" (1979), two films about individual experience and feelings. The director's greatest success came with "The Marriage of Maria Braun" (1979), chronicling the rise and fall of a German woman in the wake of World War II. Other notable movies include "The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant" (1972), "Fox and His Friends" (1975), "Satan's Brew" (1976) and "Querelle" (1982), all focused on gay and lesbian themes and frequently with a strongly pornographic edge. The following films by and about Fassbinder are specifically of LGBT interest: DIE BITTEREN TRANEN DER PETRA VON KANT [THE BITTER TEARS OF PETRA VON KANT] (1972) "Petra von Kant is a successful fashion designer -- arrogant, caustic, and self-satisfied. She mistreats Marlene (her secretary, maid and co-designer). Enter Karin, a 23-year-old beauty who wants to be a model. Petra falls in love with Karin and invites her to move in. The rest of the film deals with the emotions of this affair and its aftermath. Fassbinder tells his story in a series of 5 or 6 long scenes with extended uses of a single camera shot and deep focus." ( German poster, 34 x 23" inches. Fine. FAUSTRECHT DER FREIHEIT [FOX AND HIS FRIENDS] (1975) "Franz 'Fox' Biberkopf is a working-class guy, at loose ends when his lover is arrested and the police shutter their carnival booth. In need of cash for his weekly lottery purchase, Fox lets himself be picked up by an elegant older man named Max. At Max's, he meets two younger gay men who have expensive tastes and images to uphold. The next day, Fox wins 500,000 marks in the lottery, and Max's friends suddenly become Fox's friends, especially Eugen, the heir to a bookbinding firm that's short of cash. Eugen's polish beguiles Fox, and the fleecing begins." ( Two German posters, one in color with an image of three cast members, including Fassbinder. One in black-and-white with a portrait of Fassbinder in a black leather jacket. Both 33 x 24 inches. Fine. Eight German lobby cards. 9 x 12 inches. German program, Film Neuer-Kurier #144, Vienna, 1975. Pictorial wrappers, 8 pp., fine. IN EINEM JAHR MIT 13 MONDEN [IN A YEAR WITH 13 MOONS] (1978). A drama that follows the last few days in the life of Elvira (formerly Erwin) Weisshaupt. Years before, Erwin told a co-worker, Anton, that he loved him, and Anton replied, "Too bad, you aren't a woman." Trying to salvage something from the wreckage love has made of his life, he now hopes that Anton will not reject him again. German poster, 33 x 24 inches, folded as issued. Fine. French poster, 63 x 47 inches, folded as issued. About Fine. Eight German lobby cards. 9 x 12 inches. Fine. Two German promotional photos with text on the verso. 5 x 7 inches (13 x 18 cm). Near Fine. German program, Film Neues-Programm #7366. 4 pages. Fine. EIN MANN WIE EVA [A MAN LIKE EVA] (1984) A film basically about Fassbinder, made shortly after his death. "A bearded director named EVA, a fictive Rainer Werner Fassbinder, lives in a large house with his cast and crew as he films Dumas' Lady of the Camellias. His accountant informs him he has many unpaid bills and little cash on hand. EVA throws a fit and fires him. He then proceeds to play one person off against another, dismiss with cruelty his recent lover Ali, sleep openly with his leading lady Gudrun, and make a direct and public play for his leading man, Walter. He's mercurial, dictatorial, and manic. Will he finish the film, having drawn great performances from his actors through his manipulations, or will his antics set events in motion that spin out of his control?" German poster. 33 x 24 inches. Fine.

In part, ?I would say that I much enjoyed the historical novels of Stanley Wayman ?" ?Under the Red Robe?, ?The Abbess of Veaye? ?The Castle Inn? (this I read again with much pleasure only a year ago), etc. All the Sherlock Holmes stories were enthusiasms of mine. Maurice Hewletts? ?The Forest Lovers?. Practically all of Dickens, though I did skip some of the more sentimental bits, but much relished Mrs. Nickleby, for example, especially the mad old gentleman who was courting her by throwing vegetable marrows over his garden wall! ?Charlotte M. Young?s ?Unknown to History? was very good. Charlotte Bronte?s ?Jane Eyre? I found wildly exciting. The early Hugh Walpole were his best ?" I enjoyed ?Mr Perrin and Mr. Trail? and ?Prelude to Adventure? attracted me, when I was rather elder, by their intense originality. P.G. Wodehouse I enjoyed enormously ... I had a brief passion for Maeterlink?s ?Bluebird?. Nobody forced me on to Shakespeare, which I consider very lucky, as I was able to approach him from seeing him first on a stage! This is the way that I think all teenagers should meet Shakespeare first, since that is the purpose for which they were meant ...? From 1966 to 1970, Evelyn Byrne ran a program at New York City's Elizabeth Barrett Browning Junior High School where she asked major literary and artistic figures of the time to write back with their recollections of what books inspired them while they were teenagers. An assortment of their responses were published in the book Attacks of Taste, printed in 1971 by Gotham Book Mart.

Travers goes on to detail her literary influences including ?Beatrix Potter? and ?Grimms Fairy Tales ?

      "Typed Letter Signed ?P. L. Travers,? 1 page, 9.5? x 7.75?, Air Letter. London, March 18, 1966. To Miss Evelyn B. Byrne, New York. Fine condition. In full, ?Dear Miss Byrne, Thank you for writing to me about your students? interests in Mary Poppins. Do please tell them that this is not a book primarily for children, as is evident from the kind of fan mail I receive which comes from the very young right through to the very old. Nobody need be ashamed about reading the books of Mary Poppins at the ages of 13-15. It will interest them to know I have just spent a semester at Radcliff College as Writer-in-Resident and everybody there as well as the Harvard students were all reading the books again after having read them as children. ?I have not much time, as you an imagine, to write down all the books that have interested me, but I can tell you that my own youthful reading consisted largely of Beatrix Potter, E. Nesbit, Ethel Turner?s Seven Little Australians, and above all Grimm?s Fairly [sic] Tales. And all these books I still read because they are all, like Mary Poppins, books for grown-ups. I do not think of myself as a writer for children, but I would go even further than that and say that there are no such things as childrens? books; there are simply books and some of them children read. ?My lawyer, a man in his middle 50s, keeps Mary Poppins at his bedside because he says it helps him to solve his clients? problems. I think that the book above all that I have mentioned is Grimms, and nobody can consider themselves properly educated, to my mind, who has not read this book. it consists all the wisdom she needs to know. But, remember, it must be the definitive Grimm and not a bowdlerised edition brought out to accommodate the techniques of any particular illustrator.? Travers has noted, in her own hand, that the definitive Grimm is ?Published in the U.S. by Pantheon Books.? From 1966 to 1970, Evelyn Byrne ran a program at New York City's Elizabeth Barrett Browning Junior High School where she asked major literary and artistic figures of the time to write back with their recollections of what books inspired them while they were teenagers. An assortment of their responses were published in the book Attacks of Taste, printed in 1971 by Gotham Book Mart. Accompanied by photocopies of a related October 26, 1967 Travers? letter and a November 16, 1967 letter from Travers? secretary."

A fine association copy, INSCRIBED by Paine to former six-term Senator Claiborne Pell of Rhode Island (1918-2009): "To the honorable Claiborne / Pell and his lovely, lovely / Lady / Wingate Paine." Like Sam Haskins, Paine's midsixties erotic study is as much a statement on the models as it is of the era itself. One of the highlights of the genre, presented sequentially in a cinematic style. Unlike many photobooks, Mirror of Venus was a commercial success at the time of publication and had multiple printings. With text by Françoise Sagan and Federico Fellini.

        ALFIE: Original 113pp Mimeographed Screenplay for the 1966 Film Starring Michael Caine; a Working Script with Copious Annotations by the Wardrobe Department)

      London: Sheldrake Films (Distributed By Paramount Pictures), 1966. [Naughton, Bill] ALFIE. London: Sheldrake Films, 1965. Original 113pp Draft Screenplay bound in original black production company covers, dated April 14, 1965, for the film adaptation of Bill Naughton's novel ALFIE starring Michael Caine in his first leading role. This copy belonged to the film's wardrobe department, most likely to wardrobe supervisor Jean Fairlie; it is heavily annotated with copious notes on the costuming required from scene to scene. One of the many remarkable things about the film ALFIE was its depiction of swinging London in the 1960 and wardrobe was certainly one of the most important elements in creating the "look and feel" of the film. This draft consists primarily of light blue pages but there are several inserted sections of white revision pages dated July 2, 1965. The wardrobe annotations are made on the versos of 40+ leaves in black ink, blue ink, and orange marker and are detailed and extensive. Directed by Lewis Gilbert, co-starring Shelley Winters, and with Naughton doing the screenplay adaptation himself, ALFIE was more than just a success (Five Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Screenplay), it has maintained its place over the years as one of the iconic cornerstones of the British film industry resurgence of the mid-1960s. The British Film Institute has ranked ALFIE 33rd on its list of the 100 greatest British Films. The script is complete and in Very Good condition (well-thumbed but with eye appeal). Unique.. Signed. Very Good.
