      London: Rupert Hart Davis London: Rupert Hart-Davis,. 1968. boards.. Slight spine lean, else a fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#142589). First edition. "Papal domination of Europe has slowed progress and a dystopian medievalism has lasted into the twentieth century" - Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, pp. 313-4. "... a striking work of the imagination." - Burgess, Ninety-nine Novels: The Best in English since 1939, p. 104. With his second book, Roberts came fully into his own as a writer. PAVANE superbly depicts an alternate history in which -- Elizabeth I having been assassinated, the Spanish Armada victorious and no Protestant rise of capitalism in the offing -- a technologically backward England survives under the sway of the Catholic Church Militant. The individual stories are moody, eloquent, elegiac and thoroughly convincing." - John Clute, SFE (online). Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-910. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels 58. Survey of Science Fiction Literature IV, pp. 1660-64.

        The Blue Angel

      London: Lorrimer Publishing,, 1968. An authorized translation of the German continuity. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. With black and white plates throughout showing stills from the film. With a Frederick Ungar Publishing Co., New York, distribution sticker on the rear panel of the jacket. Light rubbing to corners. An excellent copy in the jacket with tiny nicks to the tips. First edition thus; the authorised translation of the film (itself an adaptation of a novel by Heinrich Mann), which was shot in Berlin during the winter of 1929, and was the first sound film shot in Germany, as well as being the film that first launched Marlene Dietrich to fame as Lola-Lola. This copy has been inscribed by the actress on the title page, "To Joseph, Dietrich" - it is tempting to think of this inscription as being to the director himself, since he was still alive, and living in America where this book was distributed, until 1969, though the unGermanic spelling makes this unlikely.

        La Promenade de König Immerlustik

      Kohlkunstpresse, Frankfurt 1968 - Folio. Unpaginated (200 p). Original photo-illustrated wrappers. Profusely illustrated with reproductions of double-, and full-page b/w photographs of a woman's bare rear by Gunter Rambow. This work was privately published by Gunter and its release was possible since the sexual revolution was in full swing by 1968. The photos show the same model without ever seeing her face, always bent over which give her rear a 'moonlike' appearance. The photos were taken in a wide range of locations in Germany, some discreet, some better known such as the Kasseler Bergpark & inside and outside of the 4. Documenta with art pieces in the background. The artist's objective was to show himself as the generous "König Immerlustik" (the perpetually happy king), who allows his 'viewers' to accompany him on this aesthetic journey focusing more on the 'effect of the surroundings' rather than the subject. This work is considered a classic by Gunter Rambow (1938-), who is a German graphic designer and photographer. He also was a professor for graphic design at the 'Gesamthochschule Kassel' and a professor for visual communication at the 'Staatlichen Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe'. No text. Minor age wear on wrappers with slight and sporadic creasing along edges, and abrasion at upper front joint and lower back joint of covers. Wrappers in overall good- to good, interior in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A Fan's Notes

      Harper & Row, NY 1968 - A second printing of his first book, "a fictional memoir" and one of the defining books of the Sixties, which helped blur the line between fiction and nonfiction much the way the New Journalism of that era did. A finalist for the National Book Award, winner of both the William Faulkner Foundation Award for best first novel and the Richard and Hinda Rosenthal Foundation Award of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, for a work that, while not a commercial success, was nonetheless "a considerable literary achievement." Made into a movie in 1972, which was a finalist for the Golden Palm award at the Cannes Film Festival. While Exley's book was not a bestseller at the time, over the years it has remained in print, been brought out in a number of different editions, and is widely viewed as a classic of the 1960s. Signed by the author. Very slight spine slant; near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a couple short tears at the crown. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Photographie originale signée] Place du Zócalo à Mexico (plaza de la Constitución), 1963. [Longue dédicace autographe de Cartier-Bresson à Jean-Michel Folon]

      1968. Photo. Illus. by Henri Cartier-Bresson. Bon. Aucune reliure. Dédicacé par l'auteur. 17,1 x 25,1 cm (feuille et image, cadre noir de 2 mm compris). Photo de 1963, tirage gélatino-argentique et annotations autographes de la fin des années 1960 ou du tout début des années 1970. Au verso, le tampon personnel du photographe et une longue annotation autographe par Henri Cartier-Bresson pour son ami, l'illustrateur Jean-Michel Folon. Le sujet représenté est une flèche signalétique, objet essentiel et récurrent dans l'oeuvre de Folon. Folon en photographiait lui-même énormément et ses amis photographes lui envoyaient celles qu'ils trouvaient. Ici, nous n'avons pas la plus belle de toutes le flèches, ni la plus saisissante photographie de Cartier-Bresson, mais un texte autographe plein d'humour et particulièrement personnel de "l'expéditeur-décocheur" Henri Cartier-Bresson, qui nous renseigne puissamment sur l'obsession de son destinataire, Jean-Michel Folon. Ce cliché n'a jamais été reproduit, ni dans la presse ni en volume.Document rare (vague faux pli dans la longueur)..
