Spine ends lightly rubbed, slight foxing to top edge, occasional faint pencil underlining. An excellent copy in price-clipped jacket with slightly scuffed spine. First edition, first printing of Watson's personal account of the discovery of the structure of DNA. The Double Helix is one of the most important first-hand accounts of the practice of science during the 20th-century, written "with a Pepys-like frankness" and chronicling not only the wonder and beauty of a major breakthrough, but also the politics and turf wars of researchers battling for scientific glory. With the ownership inscription of economist and diplomat Eric Roll (1907–2005) and his wife, Freda. Roll was born in Romania but moved to England to attend university, becoming an economics professor at Hull in 1930 and a British citizen in 1931. He was awarded a Rockefeller Fellowship in 1939 and he and his wife sailed for the US, spending most of the Second World War in Washington D. C., where Roll was plunged into international politics as a British diplomat concerned with food policies. Following the war Roll returned to Britain and was responsible for the UK's success in the Marshall Plan negotiations; served as an envoy to NATO; and became one of the "flying knights" of the Brussels negotiations, before retiring from public service to become a banker. A beautiful copy, uncommon in such excellent condition.

One of 200 copies, signed by Shahn out of a total edition of 950. This being number eighteen. Complete with twenty-four lithographs, on Richard de Bas hand-made paper, each signed by the artist. Large folio.Lithographs are loose as issued. Housed in a half vellum over cloth clamshell. Clamshell is embossed on the front with an image of a hand with a pen. Spine of the clamshell lettered in gilt. A fine copy.\"I had now long ago found in Rilke the passage that came to mean so much to me. He was a writer about the processes of art who was not telling me what to do, what to think, how to paint. No; he was too engrossed in his own discoveries. He was sharing with me the doubts and the hesitations of art, the probings, the slow emergence of forms. His every line of writing was art, and yet such art was inseparable from its life content. No manifesto could ever tell me more clearly than this one paragraph of Rilke\'s that art is an emanation from a person; that it is shaped and formed out of the shape and form of that person. In being so acutely personal to him it achieves also a rare universality. Rilke is speaking, (is he not?) to the innermost recesses of the consciousness, an area in which we spend so much of our time and expend so much of our feeling, and yet an area that is so remote from communication with our fellow-beings, an area that is, unhappily, increasingly remote from the reaches of art. \" (From the Afterward by Ben Shahn).HBS 66038.$13,500

      London: Enitharmon Press, 1968 Limited edition of 200 numbered copies, with the publisher's errata slip laid in. Signed by Pinter on the limitation page. Publisher's ¼ red morocco over black cloth boards, ruled in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, printed on watermarked laid paper. Fine with just the barest hint of light toning to the spine, extremely bright and clean interior. A beautiful book in excellent condition. Poems is Harold Pinter's first collection of poetry, containing verses primarily written between the years 1948-1958. Specifically, it includes "New Year in the Midlands," "Book of Mirrors," "The Error of Alarm," "The Table," and "Chandeliers and Shadows," among others. Although he is best known as a playwright, Harold Pinter was a lifelong poet who began writing his first verses as a child. While his later poetry reflects the more fine-tuned work of a mature artist, the poetry in this collection was largely written before his career as a successful dramatist took off in the late 1950s, showing insight into Pinter's early writing style that formed the basis for his later masterpieces. This first edition of Poems was printed in a limited edition. The second edition, also published in a limited edition by Enitharmon, was published three years later in 1971 with 9 additional poems.. Signed by Author. Limited. Hard Cover. Fine.

He did a number of covers for Amazing Stories and Analog in the early 1970s, and was a Hugo nominee. Included in a number of his outside-the-genre works wereTime Magazine covers of Richard Nixon and Hirohito. Hinge's editor at Amazing Stories in the 70s, Ted White, said of him (after hearing of his death at age 72): "I ran more than half a dozen covers by Mike -- all of which I loved -- as well as interior art and running heads in Amazing/Fantastic." Hinge's last professional commission was the September 1993 Amazing Stories. This piece, a remarkable futuristic/militaristic expression, is believed to have been the basis for a poster in the late 1960's. LArt

        Touching Autograph letter signed by David Ben-Gurion about Bar Mitzvah celebrations for orphans of soldiers killed in the recent Six-Day War

      Autograph letter signed "David Ben-Gurion", in Hebrew, one page, 8vo, February 28, 1968, addressed to Shifra Golombian (a war widow). Ben-Gurion praises the Habad Youth initiative to make a Bar Mitzvah ceremony to orphans of soldiers who were killed in the Six-Days war only a year earlier. He regretfully rejects her invitation to take part in the ceremony due to previous engagements and acknowledges her pain and grief. A full translation is included. Ben-Gurion was among the founders of Mapai which governed Israel during the first three decades of its existence. He stepped down as Prime Minister, on personal grounds (as he explained) in 1963, and, in fact, nominated Levi Eshkol to be his successor. One year later a rivalry developed between the two on the issue of the Lavon Affair. Ben-Gurion broke with the party in June 1965 over Eshkol's handling of the Lavon affair and formed a new party, Rafi which won ten seats in the Knesset. As tensions loomed before the outbreak of the Six-Day War in 1967, Be
