        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.

      Np: California. Soft cover. Fine. TWO TYPED LETTERS SIGNED BY RONALD REAGAN, one signed "Dutch" as governor-elect in 1966; the second signed "Ronald" as Governor in 1969. The first letter, dated December 9, 1966 on Reagan's personal stationery ("Ronald Reagan / Governor-Elect / State of California") is written to his cousin, Milford L. Smith, who had written to Reagan about a speech delivered by Mr. Smith's son, Dennis, at a recent Rotary Club meeting. The original printed notes for the meeting are included and mention that Dennis "made an outstanding presentation... It will be a long time before any of us will forget his statement: 'God started some of us off with two strikes against us but we stand firm in our knowledge that he will never let us strike out.'" Reagan, in his letter, enthusiastically responds, "You have great reason to be proud of Dennis. The line you sent me that he spoke at the Rotary Club is something to be remembered. When I see some of our beatniks protesting because life isn't being handed to them on a big enough platter, I'm going to remember this line." Signed "Dutch". The second letter included is dated September 4, 1969, on Reagan's California Governor's stationery and is addressed to Dennis, congratulating him on becoming "President of the Sterling-Rock Falls Toastmasters Club". Reagan writes: "I didn't want to miss the opportunity to congratulate you on your achievements-- it must be a great personal satisfaction to know of the impact your leadership has had on the community." Signed: "Ronald". California: 1966, 1969. Two 8.5 x 11 inch sheets (Reagan letterhead). With original envelope (with Reagan's return address) for the first letter. Neat folds, otherwise fine.

        The Collected Papers of Paul A. Samuelson: Volumes 1-4

      Cambidge, MA: MIT Press, 1966. First edition of the first four volumes of the Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Samuelson collected papers. Octavo, original cloth, 4 volumes. Each are fine in very good to near fine dust jackets. Included are the contents pages in volumes 1,2, and 4. Paul Samuelson is one of the developers of both neo-Keynesian and neoclassical economics, the latter of which still dominates mainstream economics. He was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for having written considerable parts of economic theory, and he is one of the ten Nobel Prize winning economists still signing the Economist's statement opposing the Bush tax cuts. One of Samuelson's many novel contributions was that he generalized and applied mathematical methods developed for the study of thermodynamics to the field of economics. His inspiration for doing so came, in part, from his mentor, polymath Edwin Bisdwell Wilson who was a former Yale student of the founder of chemical thermodynamics, Willard Gibbs. Samuelson, therefore, is a successful example of interdisciplinarity, and he combined these ideas in his magnum opus Foundations of Economic Analysis (1947).

        The Collected Scientific Papers of Paul A. Samuelson. Volumes I-V

      Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 1966-1986. First editions of each volume of the collected papers of Nobel Prize-winning economists papers. Octavo, 5 volumes, original cloth. Each are near fine in very good dust jackets. Each volume is signed by Paul A. Samuelson; volumes I & II are signed by fellow Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz, who served as editor of these volumes. "It is a measure of Professor Samuelson's preeminence that the sheer scale of his work should be so much taken for granted," observes a reviewer in the "Economist" who goes on to note that "a cynic might add that it would have been better for Professor Samuelson to write less merely to give others a chance to write at all."In fact, Samuelson's output, his "extraordinary mastery of methods, both mathematical and linguistic" (review of Volume 4 of "The Collected Scientific Papers"), have not diminished. Volumes 1 through 4 encompass more than 280 articles. The first two contain virtually all of Samuelson's contributions to economic theory through mid-1964; Volume 3 contains all the scientific papers written from mid-1964 through 1970, and the last volume brings his work up to through 1976. A very attractive set, scarce signed. Paul Samuelson is one of the developers of both neo-Keynesian and neoclassical economics, the latter of which still dominates mainstream economics. He was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for having written considerable parts of economic theory, and he is one of the ten Nobel Prize winning economists still signing the Economist's statement opposing the Bush tax cuts.
