Thick 8vo, publisher’s original red cloth, the spines lettered in gilt, the books all housed in their printed varied colour dust-jackets. xxxvi, 608; xxix, 775; xxxvii, 988; xvi, 967; xxvii, 1167; xx, 1308; xx, 1417; xxvii, 1438 pp. A fine set of this prodigious work. The books and dust-jackets are all in very handsome and pleasing condition. FIRST EDITION COMPLETE OF ONE OF THE MOST MONUMENTAL HISTORICAL TASKS EVER UNDERTAKEN, RESULTING IN ONE OF THE GREAT HISTORICAL WORKS EVER PRODUCED. Randolph Churchill, who began this great work with Martin Gilbert in the early 1960’s had the exclusive use of Sir Winston’s letters and papers. The form in which is the work is cast is summed up in the phrase that Randolph Churchill quotes from Lockhart: “He shall be his own biographer.” And the authors present Churchill, a far as possible, through his own words. The first volume covers the years from Churchill’s birth to his return to England from an American lecture tour on the day of Queen Victoria’s funeral, in order to embark on his political career. The final volume spans Churchill’s life from the defeat of Germany in 1945 to his death nearly twenty years later. ‘No statesman of modern times--or indeed of any earlier age--has left such a wealth of personal letters, such a rich seam of private and public documentation, such vivid memories in the minds of those who worked closest to him or were at his side at both historic and amusing moments. Through these materials, assembled by Martin Gilbert during more than twenty years, one can trace Churchill’s moods, aims, actions, hopes and farsightedness. The many-sided nature of Churchill’s abilities, his enormous capacity for work when well into his seventies, his literary achievements, his optimism, his humanity, his humour, his belief in man’s capacity for self-improvement and survival, fill this volume with a rich tapestry of people and events, dominated not by the day-to-day struggle of politics and international conflicts but by an abiding sensitivity. Randolph Churchill died just after the second volume of this massive work was produced and Martin Gilbert continued the writing . He is one of Britain’s most distinguished historians. Following Randolph’s death in 1968 he was appointed the Official Biographer. During the twenty-five years spent on the biography, which reached completion in 1988, Mr. Gilbert wrote many other books on modern European history including AUSCHWITZ AND THE ALLIES, THE HOLOCAUST, and THE SECOND WORLD WAR as well as serving as editor of thirteen volumes of Churchill documents. The eight volume work offered here has been hailed as “ stupendous achievement...of immense and permanent value.”

        BOYS WILL BE BOYS! - Rare Fine Copy of The First Hardcover Edition/First Printing

      New York City, NY: Book Horizons, Inc. /Book Adventures, 1966 - 1st Printing. 256 pages. Published in 1966. Collection of black-and-white photographs on subject. The sensational sequel to "The Boy: A Photographic Essay", it can be enjoyed on its own as a "stand-alone" collection. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Book Adventures: Oversize-volume format. Red cloth boards with gilt titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by various contributors. Edited with an Introduction by Georges St. Martin and Ronald C. Nelson. Printed in rich gravure on thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents a collection of photographs of boys at their most innocent and therefore, truly uninhibited, taken from all over the Western world: Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, and the United States. It is disingenuous to say that this is a simply a celebration of boyhood, then or today. Yes it is, and more: A recollection of boyhood from the point-of-view of its adult photographers, for adult enjoyment. Most of the photographs in the book show the boys outdoors, swimming in the pond, camping, climbing mountains, playing games, and perhaps most controversial of all, simply posing nude for the camera, something that many of the greatest photographers have done throughout the medium's history (two of the most famous being Edward Weston's photographs of his son Cole and Sally Mann of "Immediate Family"). The writers/editors felt confident enough to say that: "Any parent, educator, social worker, anyone who enjoys boys and the fun of boys, will treasure these magnificently reproduced photographs, and will return to them again and again" (Georges St. Martin and Ronald C. Nelson). In our politically correct, toxic (and benighted) climate, this is all, of course, suddenly questionable. Still: The printing is in beautiful gravure, the boys are having "summertime" fun, and the book is a treasure because it is ultimately about the Paradise Lost called childhood, never to be regained. A "must-have" title for photography book completists. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and despite its imperfection (very slight wear on DJ spine and corners) is still in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Because the book is rare in any condition, all other copies available online command up to $1500 even if they have major flaws. A rare copy thus. Hundreds of gravure plates. Some of the world's most accomplished photographers. A fine collectible copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Joseph Solman

      Crown Publishers New York: Crown Publishers, 1966. First Edition. Quarto (28cm). Green cloth boards lettered in red; dustjacket; 16pp text, 240 plates. Inscribed on front endpaper: "To my favorite American artist, Ben Shahn, from a fellow-artist, Joseph Solman," undated. From the library of Ben and Bernarda Bryson Shahn, with estate label tipped on to front pastedown. Solman (1909-2008) rose to prominence in the 1930s as a painter of semi-abstract cityscapes, and became associated with the group "The Ten," which included Adolph Gottlieb and Mark Rothko. In the forties he became the art critic for the communist journal Masses & Mainstream, which had always portrayed Shahn positively as "the most mature, consistent and satisfying of the American social painters." Both artists had moved in rather different directions by the mid 1950s, and it is gratifying to see that Solman still held Shahn in such high regard late in his career.

        The History of the Deschutes Club. Commemorating Thirty-Three Years of Sport, Conservation & Friendship. 1933-1966.

      - Portland, Oregon. Touchstone Press. 1966. Limited to 100 copies. 8vo. (8 x 6). 111 pp. Black and white photos showing the Deschutes river and canyon, club members, the clubhouse, fish caught, and the occasional rattle snake, which the canyon is notorious for. An excellent history of the club and fly fishing on the Deschutes; it was published for club members only. I can definitively say the book was published in an edition of 100 copies. Several years ago I came across a prospectus for the book, issued upon its publication, and 100 copies was number stated in the prospectus. Laid-in is a letter from a west coast book seller addressed to the publisher seeking to buy a copy - unfortunately, he was out of luck, as the book was sold out years prior to the inquiry. The book is bound in brown cloth with gilt titles on the spine and front cover. Map end papers. A nice book. Fine.
