        SYLVESTER AND THE MAGIC PEBBLE BY WILLIAM STEIG

      Windmill Books, Inc. / Simon & Schuster, Inc., New York 1969 - np (32pp), 28 color illustrations. "Sylvester and the Magic Pebble" is beloved "The New Yorker" cartoonist and illustrator William Steig's 1969 classic children's tale of the anthromorphised young donkey Sylvester Duncan, his family in Oatdale, and as you may have suspected, a magic pebble. The book was awarded the 1970 Caldecott Medal - Steig's first. An internally bright, most handsome example of the uncommon 1969 stated first Windmill Books, Inc. and Simon & Schuster, Inc. hardbound printing showing some notable wear, soiling, short closed tears, and a bit of paper loss to its dust jacket. Both corners of the inside flap of the jacket have been diagonally price-clipped but the printed line "6010" that is indicative of the first jacket state is still present along the bottom edge. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this set beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

        Joan of Arc

      New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, 1969. First edition. Hardcover. Lauren Ford. This interesting little book is excerpted from Churchill's A History of the English-Speaking Peoples. On 29 December 1938, Churchill wrote to his wife regarding his initial draft about this part of his history: "I have just finished writing about Joan of Arc. I think she is the winner in the whole of French history. The leading women of these days were more forceful and remarkable than the men." Profusely illustrated, this slim volume contains 17 illustrations by the distinguished artist Lauren Ford. Though 16 of these illustrations had previously been published as black and white drawings, this is their first appearance in color. The illustration on the dust jacket front cover and frontispiece is original to this edition. This little-known edition is scarce and thus missing from many collections. Many of the copies that do come on the market are ex-library with attendant flaws, very often including library stickers or writing on the spine. This copy is not ex-library, a truly fine example in a very good dust jacket. The white cloth binding remains immaculate and square, with sharp corners and bright gilt. The contents are likewise pristine, with no spotting or previous ownership marks. The dust jacket remains bright and unclipped, retaining the original $3.50 front flap price. We note only light soiling to the rear panel and a little wear at the spine ends and corners. The dust jacket is protected with a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A279, Woods/ICS A138(j), Langworth p.334.

        Andy Warhol (Stockholm Catalogue)

      Stockholm: Moderna Museet, 1969. Tiny production crease to the top of the spine, else near fine in gilt-edged wrappers; plexiglass slipcase was split at the top of the spine and inexpertly repaired, with minor discoloration on the inside, a few light scratches, otherwise very good. Housed in a custom clamshell box.. Second Edition. Quarto. The deluxe edition, gilt-edged, housed in a black plexiglass slipcase with clear sides to highlight the gilt edges. SIGNED by Andy Warhol. Limited to approximately 50-100 copies, but exact bibliographic details are unknown. Warhol's famous 'Stockholm Catalogue', published on the occasion of his first European museum show at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, February - March, 1968. The concept for the catalogue was developed by Kasper König, who commissioned Factory stalwart Billy Name, and a teenage Stephen Store, to photograph how Warhol and his coconspirators lived and worked. But it was König's use of the xerox machine to reproduce Warhol's own work that gives this catalogue its signature feel. By some estimates over 200,000 copies were printed in three editions. (Parr / Badger, v2, 144-145; Open Book 238-239).

        A Schematic Model of Baryons and Mesons," in Physics Letters, 8, Number 3, 1 February 1964, pp 214-215

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF MURRAY GELL-MANN'S SEMINAL PAPER POSITING THE IDEA OF 'QUARKS' INSIDE THE ATOMIC NUCLEUS. Gell-Mann took nearly a year to write this short, Nobel Prize winning paper, and yet in it, three quarks later named 'up,' 'down,' and 'strange' "explained phenomena that theorists had been puzzling over for years" (Crease, The Second Creation, 283). "A landmark in contemporary physics, the eight-paragraph note is a model of scientific prose: brief, logical, achingly clear, so tightly and modestly drawn that its full scope may elude the reader. In the first line, the author sets forth his intention: "If we assume that the strong interactions of baryons and mesons are correctly described in terms of the broken eightfold way, we are tempted to look for some fundamental explanation of the situation." And then he did just that. Gell-Mann's paper "explained how various combinations of three particles from a triplet could produce baryons (such as protons and neutrons), while two members from the triplet could combine to form a meson (the most famous example at the time being the pi meson, or pion). Maintaining standard electric charges required a fourth particle for this approach to work, Gell-Mann noted in his paper. But "a simpler and more elegant scheme can be constructed if we allow non-integral values for the charges," he wrote. "We then refer to the members … of the triplet as 'quarks.'" Gell-Mann "proposed the quark hypothesis to account for the explosion of subatomic particles discovered in accelerator and cosmicray experiments during the 1950s and early 1960s. Over a hundred new particles, most of them strongly interacting and very short-lived, had been observed. These particles, called hadrons, are not elementary; they possess a definite size and internal structure, and most can be transformed from one state into another. "The quark hypothesis suggested that different combinations of three quarks-the up (u), down (d), and strange (s) quarks-and their antiparticles could account for all of the hadrons then known. Each quark has an intrinsic spin of 1/2 unit and is presumed to be elementary, like the electron. So far, quarks appear to have no size or internal structure and thus represent the smallest known constituents of matter. To explain the observed spectrum of hadrons, quarks had to have electric charges that are fractions of the electron charge. The u quark has charge 2/3 while the d and s quarks have charges 1/3 (in units where the electron charge is 1). "The observed hadron spectrum agreed remarkably well with the expected states formed from combinations of three quarks or a quark-antiquark pair. Quarks also seemed to form a counterpart to the other class of elementary particles, the leptons, which then included the electron (e) and muon (µ) (both with unit charge) and their companion chargeless neutrinos, e and µ. The leptons do not feel the strong interaction, but they do participate in the electromagnetic interactions and the weak interaction responsible for radioactive decays. They have the same spin as the quarks and also have no discernible size or internal structure" (Carithers & Grannis, SLAC: Discovery of the Top Quark, 6). In 1969, Gell-Mann was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics "for his contributions and discoveries concerning the classification of elementary particles and their interactions" (Nobel Media). CONDITION & DETAILS: First edition in original wraps. Amsterdam: North-Holland Publishing Company. 4to (10.5 x 7.75 inches). Pp. 149-220. Ex-libiris: one sticker and two faint stamps on the front wrap; very slight scuffing; a few stray pencil marks on the rear wrap. Otherwise very good.

        President Nixon thanks publisher James S. Copley for his editorial supporting ?the need for a continuing and realistic appraisal of the U.S. defense capabilities? and his proposal for a new program, the Safeguard Anti-Ballistic Missile system

Pale green White House stationery with blind embossed presidential seal at top center. To James S. Copley, Chairman-Publisher, Copley Newspapers, La Jolla. With original White House envelope. Mailing folds. Fine condition.In part, ?Dear Jim: Your editorial of March 11 reminded me of the major contribution you and the Copley newspapers made toward my election victory ... I was pleased to note that your analysis of the problems I faced concerning the ABM system stressed the need for a continuing and realistic appraisal of the U.S. defense capabilities. This is, of course, one of the key elements in my proposal for the Safeguard program...?A conservative Republican, James S. Copley (1916-1973) was publisher of the ?San Diego Union,? ?The San Diego Union-Tribune,? and the ?San Diego Evening Tribune? from 1947 until his death in 1973.At his press conference on March 14, 1969, President Nixon discussed the Sentinel ABM ?" antiballistic missile ?" system. In part, ?After a long study of all the options available, I have concluded that the Sentinel program previously adopted should be substantially modified. The new program that I have recommended this morning to the leaders, and that I announce today, is one that perhaps best can be described as a safeguard program. It is a safeguard against any attack by the Chinese Communists that we can foresee over the next 10 years. It is a safeguard of our deterrent system, which is increasingly vulnerable due to the advances that have been made by the Soviet Union since the year 1967 when the Sentinel program was first laid out...?"

        No Exit from Vietnam. VERY IMPORTANT SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY WITH A.L.s.

      Chatto & Windus. London 1969 - First edition. DW. Signed, "With all best wishes, Robert Thompson. March, 1969." Loosely inserted, on headed writing-paper, dated 2 April 1969, is a three page hand-written letter from the author to Lord Caccia, the British Ambassador to the US from 1956 to 1961. This is a very important letter and starts, "My Lord, Many thanks for your kind letter about the book. It was not easy to write and even now I feel that I may have overdone it in being over critical.My fear is that Nixon will tend to bumble along and lose it unintentionally, because he will not be prepared to come out with a constructive policy which must take time." He goes on to predict with some accuracy what the conclusion to the Vietnam war will be. Thompson, who signs himself here as "Bob", is sincere in trying to find the most effective way to influence the White House. History has shown us that he failed in that. A unique copy and a historically important item for anyone interested in the long-standing debate on the complexity of the Vietnam War. VG+ in wrapper that is rubbed and nicked along edges. Background: .one British intelligence operative who played a vital role in convincing the Johnson administration to launch the Vietnam adventure was Sir Robert Grainger Ker Thompson, who was touted in Newsweek and U.S. News and World Report during the mid-1960s as the world's pre-eminent expert in guerrilla warfare. Born in 1916, Thompson held a history degree from Cambridge and was fluent in both Mandarin and Cantonese Chinese. During World War II, Thompson had been a member of Gen. Orde Wingate's Chindits, a proto­type of later special forces. He later commanded "Ferret Force," a British anti-guerrilla unit in Malaya, where he devised the strategic hamlet program that was later to fail miserably in Vietnam. By 1961, Thompson was Secretary for the Defense of Malaya. In this year, Thompson was invited to South Vietnam by President Diem; he became the chief of the British Advisory Mission and a key adviser and counterinsurgency "idea man " to Diem. Thompson never concealed his contempt for the United States. His favorite slur on the ungrateful colonials was, "The trouble with you Americans is that whenever you double the effort you somehow manage to square the error." In 1959, (after Malayan independence), Thompson became permanent secretary for defence for Tun Abdul Razak (who later became Malayan prime minister). In response to a request from President Ngo Dinh Diem of South Vietnam, Tunku Abdul Rahman, the Malayan prime minister sent a team to South Vietnam to advise Diem on how to counter his insurgency problems. Thompson headed that team which so impressed Diem that he asked the British to second Thompson to the government South Vietnam as an advisor. In September 1961 the British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan appointed him head of the newly established BRIAM (British Advisory Mission) to South Vietnam - and by extension Washington. Thompson conceived of an initiative he called the Delta Plan but when he saw the effects of the strategic hamlets initiative, begun in February 1962 he became an enthusiastic backer, telling President Kennedy in 1963 that he felt the war could be won. Under Thompson's leadership BRIAM put economic pressure on the South Vietnamese government that Thompson described as a "straight invitation to a coup". Kennedy was receptive to Thompson's ideas but the American military establishment were extremely reluctant to implement them. His warning not to bomb villages went unheeded and his dismissal of American air supremacy was ignored. "The war [will] be won by brains and on foot", he told Kennedy but competing interests in Washington and Saigon acted to marginalise Thompson and ultimately his strategies had no real effect on the conflict. He stepped down from BRIAM in 1965 and the organisation, deprived of the man who was essentially its raison d'être, folded up around him. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        50 Jahre Madaus: Eine aufgeschlossene Firma

      Dr. Maudhaus & Co, Köln am Rhein 1969 - 4to. Unpaginated (72pp. & 8pp. text booklet). Pictorial wraps in sturdy original paper-covered, printed cardboard slipcase. Wraps and slipcase protected by modern mylar. Fabulously designed book by the German pharmaceutical company Madaus, published to commemorate their 50th anniversary. Profusely illustrated with over 100 b/w reproductions of photographs (many in photomontage) by Barbara Schulten, 4 color illustrations, and a total of 12 pop-up inserts, tipped-in ephemera, pull-out tabs, and pop-up figures. Includes 16 1/2" x 22" color fold-out poster of an 1930's advertisement. One fold-out illustrated with a mouse in a science lab, when opened an accordion-style pop-up creates the noise of a shrieking mouse. 8 page booklet "Haussegen! Ein Kochbuch von Frau Pastor Madaus", as well as reader-reply card laid-in, as issued. The 'Pop Art' layout and design of the work shows similarities to Andy Warhol's 1967's 'Index Book'. "Madaus, founded in 1919, is one of the world's leading producers of pharmaceuticals, particularly those produced from plants, and the book extols the virtues of homeopathy and the social role of developing new drugs to fight disease. Not only a cornucopia of design and layout ideas, it features several pop-up pages in the style of a children's book. The result combines a high purpose with a sense of fun, as if the customers of Madaus - institutions used to dealing with the question of man's mortality - could benefit from an injection of laughter into the serious business of medical research." (Parr & Badger II: 196). Slipcase with slight rubbing on head and tail of spine and edges. Tiny closed tear on top right corner of slipcase. Text in German. Tight copy in very good condition. Complete with all pop-ups, as issued. One of the best designed and most innovative publications of company photobooks. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      New York: Maecenas Press, Random House,, 1969. Twelve Illustrations with Original Woodcuts and an Original Etching by Salvador Dalí. Folio. Publisher's fall-down-back box of brown straight-grain quarter morocco, cloth sides, leather-and-horn ties, portfolio of letterpress and illustrations loose in brown cloth chemise. Complete with shipping carton. Etching printed in sepia, green and black, plates in colour. First Dalí edition, the German issue, limited to 150 copies with an additional title page printed in German. Signed on the title page by Dalí. "The artist Salvador Dalí, famous for his surreal images of melting clocks and barren landscapes, at first glance might not seem to have much in common with a retiring Victorian English don who wrote children's books. But actually, Dalí and Carroll had much in common: both men were ardent explorers of dreams and the imagination, attempting in their art to show the fertile pathways to the unconscious. This artistic temperament might explain why, in his sixties, Dalí created twelve surreal illustrations - one for each chapter - for Alice in Wonderland. Because he required a rich, lush palette for his painted drawings, Dalí turned to the oldest process for reproducing photographic images for printing: heliogravure. Similar to engraving, the method is time consuming and costly. Each heliogravure is printed by hand and considered an original" (Catherine Nichols, Alice's Wonderland: a Visual Journey through Lewis Carroll's Mad, Mad World, 2014, p. 28).
