      American International Pictures 1969 - Final script for the 1970 Hammer horror film. Possibly the screenwriter's copy, with authorial holograph corrections to dialogue and screen direction throughout, along with tipped-in changes to same. Ingrid Pitt, Pippa Steel, Madeline Smith, Peter Cushing, dir: Roy Ward Baker. Based on the 1872 story Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu about a female vampire named Marcilla Karnstein (Ingrid Pitt) who comes back from death, renamed Mircalla, and spreads havoc. She kills the daughter of General Von Spielsdorf (Peter Cushing), who swears revenge on the beguiling, seductive bloodsucker. Le Fanu's legendary story of a female vampire was a major influence on Bram Stoker's Dracula, and was first adapted to the screen by Carl Theodor Dryer as Vampyr in 1932. Hammer Productions, having pretty much exhausted the Dracula franchise by 1970, turned a corner with this film by introducing a superior script and production values, new elements of eroticism and, of course, the angle of the principal vampire being a ravishing female. Hammer's first co-production with American International Pictures (the company largely responsible for most of the Edgar Allen Poe-based films), and the first installment in Hammer's "Carmilla/Mircalla" series, followed by LUST FOR A VAMPIRE (1971) and TWINS OF EVIL (1971). Ingrid Pitt would begin a short but successful stay as a sexy vampire with the film, including roles in THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD (1971) and COUNTESS DRACULA (1971), and she even had a cameo as the librarian in Robin Hardy's 1973 horror classic THE WICKER MAN. Red studio wrappers, with a die-cut window to the title, and a holograph notation of copy no. 18, a "rainbow" copy, 120 leaves, mechanically reproduced with blue, pink and yellow revision pages throughout, dated variously between January 9, 1970, and February 3, 1970. NEAR FINE in VERY GOOD+ wrappers with some brief fraying to the left edge of the front wrapper, brad-bound. In a custom-made quarter-leather clamshell box

        Protagonisti. Giacometti, Sutherland, De Chirico. Fotografie di Giorgio Soavi

      Longanesi, 1969. 4to (cm. 31), 263 pp. con 52 a colori e 185 in nero. Ritratti originali di Giorgio Soavi, Graham Sutherland (4), ALberto Giacometti (7, di cui due con Annette), Giorgio De Chirico (eseguiti da L. Civerchia). Tela editoriale con sovrac. fig. (piccole mende). Ottimo esemplare con lunga dedica dell’Autore che contiene sintetiche annotazioni su ciascuno dei tre artisti cui l’opera è dedicata. Il volume proviene dalla biblioteca del pittore romano Luigi Civerchia. I ritratti qui presenti mostrano l’idea di concepire il libro come un intelligente ed espressivo contenitore di memorie, le proprie innanzitutto, ma anche quelle dei diversi personaggi che egli ritrae, come intrecciandone i destini tra le pagine di uno stesso testo. Vale la pena notare che il nostro pittore ha scelto solo i libri come gallerie per i ritratti. Chi ha visitato qualche sua mostra, tra le tante tenutesi in Italia e all’estero, avrà infatti osservato che nei paesaggi o in altre composizioni le figure umane sono per lo più assenti, o comunque, hanno un ruolo del tutto secondario. E’ quindi una vera scoperta il Civerchia ritrattista, e lo è ancor più considerando la particolarità di esprimersi su di un mezzo singolare come sono le pagine di un libro. Luigi Civerchia è nato a Roma, nel popolare quartiere di Trastevere, nel 1928. Dopo una prima esperienza presso la bottega di uno scultore, continua il suo percorso nell’Atelier di Vittorio Grassi, momento fondante della sua formazione umana ed artistica. Si avvicina poi alla Scuola Romana seguendo con entusiasmo gli insegnamenti dei suoi Maestri ideali: Mafai, Pirandello e Quaglia.

        Conversations with Dali [Signed with Original Drawing by Salvador Dali]

      E.P. Dutton & Co., New York 1969 - Floridly SIGNED with an ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATION by Salvador Dali in blue felt-tip ink on the spread encompassing the first two blank pages (verso of ffep & recto of first blank). Full double-page signature, with the huge "D" in Dali capped by a drawing of a halo crown adorned with a cross on top. Signed with his surname only, Dali has added the date "1971" below. The signature is bold & clear, in fine condition, with a couple of tiny brushes to the enormous capital "D". Provenance includes auction record, with pre-certified PSA/DNA & auction house COA. First Edition, stated. Translated from the French by Joachim Neugroschel. Contains ten conversations with Dali, plus an essay by Dali titled The Conquest of the Irrational. Front cover blurb: "A revealing dialogue with a modern master". From inner flap of dustjacket (in part): "The antic genius of 'the divine Dali' has never been better displayed than in these sprightly conversations with his old friend, Alain Bosquet, a novelist, poet, and critic. The setting for all ten conversations is Dali's luxurious Paris apartment. Everything is grist for the talk, and the subjects change rapidly as the obiter dicta fall: politics and painting, France and the USA, Luis Bunel, Popes John and Paul, Sophia Loren. Bosquet especially pursues Dali's relationship to Spain and France, to Catholicism, and to the history of Surrealism. There are hilarities here and opinions quotable by the page. However, running throughout this dazzling talk are the expectably shrewd and knowing observations on the history and craft of painting, both Dali's and that of past and present masters. Rounding out the ten conversations is a new translation of Dali's complete essay 'The Conquest of the Irrational', a tour de force on the place of Surrealism in twentieth-century culture. This is a primary document of the movement, in which Dali analyzes the significance of the unconscious forces of modern art over against modern science and technology". The original French edition, titled Entretiens avec Salvador Dali, was first published in 1966 by Pierre Belfond. This is the First American Edition, published 1969 by E.P. Dutton. Printed in the USA. Bound in original pale blue boards backed by yellow cloth spine with black lettering, in publisher's unclipped pictorial dustjacket (retaining original published price of $3.95 on inner front flap). A very nice clean tight solid hardcover copy. The dustjacket is now protected in a removable clear Bro-dart cover. 123pp. SIGNED COPY with an ORIGINAL DRAWING by the famed Spanish Surrealist.

      N. p.: unpublished, circa 1969. First Edition. no binding. Fine. 2 page, legal sized carbon typescript with "Two Elegies: For Che and For Christopher Okigbo." On the first leaf is a long note from Andrew Salkey [attributed, not signed], the Jamaican poet and BBC commentator: "These are the original versions of the poems before they were changed by the poet for inclusion in his third book, The Gulf and Other Poems Jonathan Cape, 1969, when they were presented considerably textually altered and under the titles "Che" and "Negatives." Comparison to the printed version shows considerable reworking of the poems. "Che" in the printed version begins "In this dark-grained news-photograph, whose glare/ is rigidly composed as Caravaggio's,/ the corpse glows candle-white on its cold altar--" . This typescript reads: "In this dark-grained baroque news-photograph,/ as cunningly composed as Caravaggio,/ the corpse, burnt-out, shines candle-white/ on its cold altar,". "Negatives" begins "A newsclip; the invasion of Biafra:/ black corpses wrapped in sunlight/ sprawled on the white glare.../. "For Christopher Okigbo" begins "A newsreel: the invasion of Biafra:/ black bodies, sliced by sunlight/ on the white road that enters ------/. Folded for mailing, else fine. Andrew Salkey was a Jamaican writer educated in Great Britain, and a central figure in the popularizing of Caribbean writers including Naipaul, Lamming and Walcott as a presenter of the BBC program Caribbean Voices. Later in life he taught at Hampshire College in Massachusetts.
