        The Pleasure Seekers

      Bloomsbury, 2010. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. As New Unread UK first/first SIGNED in fine dw. Synopsis: ys securely packed with plenty of bubblewrap in professional boxes and promptly dispatched (within 2-3 days) - 'This is a captivating, delightful novel. I was totally engaged by Tishani Doshi's people and by their world, and the language often rises - when speaking of the great matters, life, death, and above all love - to powerful metaphorical heights' Salman Rushdie 'I read this book almost in one sitting, and became completely engaged by the characters. I suffered those horrible familiar pangs of literary envy' Louis de Bernieres - It all started in August 1968 when Babo, with curly hair and jhill mill teeth, became the first member of the Patel family to leave Madras and fly on a plane all the way to London to further his education. His father should have known there would be trouble: on the morning of the departure he had his first and only dream, in which strange ghosts threw poison-tipped arrows and all his family was lost.But off Babo went, and now here he is, in a flat off the Finchley Road, untraditionally making love to a cream-skinned girl from Wales, Sian Jones, who he fell head over heels for as soon as he saw the twirl of red ribbon in her hair. Ba-ba-boom, ba-ba-boom, ba-ba-boom-boom-boom. Theirs is a mixed-up love in a topsy-turvy world, and their two families will never be the same again. Meet the Patel-Joneses: Babo, Sian, Mayuri and Bean, in their little house with orange and black gates next-door to the Punjab Women's Association. As the twentieth century creaks and croaks its way along - somewhere out there Charles and Diana get hitched; Indira Gandhi is assassinated by her own bodyguards; cable TV arrives in India - these four navigate their way through the uncharted territory of a 'hybrid' family: the hustle and bustle of Babo's relatives, the faraway phone-line crackle of Sian's, the eternal wisdom and soft bosom of great-grandmother Ba, the perils of first love, lost innocence and old age, and the big question: what do you do with the space your loved ones leave behind? In this tender, lyrical and uplifting debut, Tishani Doshi, a prizewinning poet, effortlessly captures the quirks and calamities of one unusual clan in a story of identity, family, belonging and all-transcending love

        Ramparts Wall Poster, nos 1-3 + 2 extras (August 24-28, 1968 - all issued?)

      Chicago: Ramparts Magazine, 1968. First Edition. Five ephemeral broadsides issued daily during the Youth International Party's (Yippies) "Festival of Life," held to coincide (and disrupt) the 1968 Democratic Party convention. Intended to be posted publicly, the Wall Posters include reportage on police busts, anti-hippie conspiracies, convention news, and statements from various Yippie and SDS participants including Tom Hayden, Jerry Rubin, and Abbie Hoffman. & & It is unclear how many of the Wall Posters were issued; OCLC holdings are scant and poorly catalogued. It appears that this run of five issues is more complete than any currently held; no OCLC member institution appears to own the issue for August 28th, and there is no evidence to suggest that any Wall Posters were issued after this date. Five printed broadsides, each 34" x 22-3/4" (ca 86cm x 58cm). Printed two sides, on newsprint. Vertical and horizontal fold lines (as issued); paper slightly browned, but not brittle; Very Good.

        La Police A L’Orte C’Est La Police Chez Vous" [Police at the ORTF Means Police in Your Home - Original Protest Poster from 1968 Paris Student Uprising]

      [Paris], [1968]. Very good. 44cm x 70cm, screen-printed in blue on heavy stock.  Stamped Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts Atelier Populaire at bottom right. Very good overall with a few large closed tears and some small spots of loss to the edges. Else bright and clean. Original and iconic poster from the 1968 May student uprising in Paris. Produced at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Art, the poster criticizes media manipulation by French state television, the ORTF or Office de Radiodiffusion-Télévision Française. A week before this poster was produced, a May 16th communiqué published by the Occupation Committee of the Autonomous and Popular Sorbonne University entitled “Watch out for Manipulators! Watch Out For Bureaucrats!” (translation quoted from The Situationist International Anthology) explains the antagonism towards the ORTF: “Why is the press committee -- which dares to censor the communiqués that it is charged to transmit to the agencies -- composed of apprentice journalists who are careful not to disappoint the ORTF bosses or jeopardize their future job possibilities?” The ORTF, subject to constant government interference, did not reference any student unrest at all in the months of March and April. In response, on May 25th a limited strike was held at the station followed by a full strike on June 3rd. However, the ORTF gave only limited and highly partisan coverage to the strikes. Nonetheless, the image from this poster [Kugelberg and Vermes #195 p. 172) - featuring barbed wire woven between the letters of the station (a la an atom) - remains one of the more iconic images from the 1968 protests and has been reproduced on several occasions. Even though these posters were produced sometimes in the hundreds for each design, they were posted on walls and placards and never meant to be saved, so their ephemeral nature contributes to their rarity. References: Beauty is in the Street: A Visual Record of the May ’68 Paris Uprising, Edited by Johan Kugelberg with Philippe Vermes. Four Corners Books, 2011. Situationist International Anthology.

        Flaubert

      c. 1968. Sheet size: 163 × 184 mm. Pen and ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Sunday Telegraph. The French novelist Gustave Flaubert, hat in hand, flees from a wailing old widow, presumably his mother with whom he lived most of his adult life. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle.

        Allsorts 1-7

      Macmillan and Methuen Children’s Books, [1968-1975] - Illustrations Seven volumes 4to A little occasional foxing but a very nice set, the first three volumes in dust-wrappers, the first slightly frayed, the others issued without dust-wrappers. The editor’s copy with her ownership signature in the first three volumes. Loosely inserted is an Autograph Letter signed by Roy Fuller, one of the contributors, no place or date, 1 page, 8vo, to Ann Thwaite, saying that he is delighted to be included and bemoaning the author’s lot: ". I guess I shall expire before finding an illustrator I can whole-heartedly enthuse about . my book of ‘tales’ is utterly rejected, said to be neither children’s flesh nor adults’ fowl (I fear rightly)" and mentioning Gosse ("Hopkins very much disapproved of his encouragement of French poetic forms in the 1880s") The idea for this extremely well-received series of annuals came to the editor whilst she was in Libya and found it hard to find good writing and books for her children. " ‘Why shouldn’t there be an annual containing some real writing?’ she argued, and decided to do something about it" (blurb). Almost all of the content comprises original, previously unpublished writing, in many cases by authors who had not written for children before (for example Peter Porter, Michael Frayn, Margaret Drabble and James Fenton), and include the first two appearances in print of any writing for children by William Trevor. Other contributors include Jill Paton Walsh, Joan Aiken, John Fuller, Penelope Lively, Stevie Smith, Alan Brownjohn and Ted Hughes. The illustrations include examples of work by many distinguished artists such as Shirley Hughes, Fritz Wegner, Jennie Williams (responsible for the dust-wrappers) and George Him.

        Edward Lear, Oscar Wilde, and A. C. Swinburne.

      c. 1968 - Sheet size: 152 × 176 mm. Presented in a black wooden frame with UV glass. Stamped on verso for publication in the Sunday Telegraph. Pen and ink on wove paper. Caricature portraits of the three artists, drawn as if portraits hanging in a hallway. The likeliest date is 1968, when Angus Davidson's 1938 biography of Edward Lear was reissued. Several works on or by Oscar Wilde were published or reissued that year, along with Jean Overton Fuller's Swinburne: A Critical Biography. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.
