        The First Collected Works. Centenary Limited Edition; [together with:] The Collected Essays. Centenary Limited Edition.

      London: Library of Imperial History in association with the Hamlyn Publishing Group Ltd, 1973–6 - Together, 38 volumes, octavo. Original full vellum with 22-carat gold blocking, including titles to spines, armorial device to front boards and ruling to spines and front boards, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, printed on Archive Long-Life Text Paper. Housed in the original green leatherette slipcases stamped with the Churchill arms in gilt. Typical natural variation to the tone of the vellum bindings; a couple of the slipcases a little rubbed at extremities. An excellent set. Illustrations throughout, as plates and to the text. First complete collected edition, number 312 of 1,750 sets published. The Centenary Edition is the only full collected works of Winston Churchill, reproducing his 50 books in 34 volumes. "The specifications were titanic: five million words in 19,000 pages, weighing 19 lbs, taking up 4½ ft of shelf space. To achieve publication, 11 publishing houses in Great Britain, the United States and Canada released their individual copyrights in exchange for the promise that no other complete edition of Churchill works would be published until the expiration of international copyright in 2019" (Richard M. Langworth). The Library of Imperial History went bankrupt before the projected run of 3,000 sets could be completed, so "the print run never exceeded 2,000 copies and only 1,750 sets were ever published" (Cohen). This set is accompanied by the four-volume Centenary Limited Edition of Churchill's collected essays and journalistic writings, again intended to be limited to 3,000 sets, not always present, together with a publisher's prospectus for both the Collected Works and Collected Essays. Cohen AA1; Langworth ICS AA1; Woods p. 391.

        [Photographs]: Motorcycle Racing Photographs (1958-1973)

      Philadelphia and others, 1973. Near Fine. A collection of approximately 280 snapshots (and about 10 additional small contact proofs) of motorcycles, motorcycle racing, and midget car racing. Various sizes, mostly a variation on 4.25" x 3", with some both smaller and larger; both black and white and color. A good percentage are captioned on the rear with places and some name, and many have either handwritten or stamped dates. Most are dated between 1958-1963, a few with later dates (the latest in 1973). The photos are centered around the business and motorcycle racing career of Ed LaBelle (1928-2010) who owned a motorcycle shop, Ed LaBelle Cycle Sales, in Philadelphia. Born in Landsdowne, Pennsylvania, and after service in WWII, he was a professional motorcycle racer, the three-time winner of the Canadian national championship, and held a world record in England, while simultaneously designing, customizing, and selling bikes.Most of the images show bike races and rallies including several identified in Canada, Laconia, Daytona, the Langhorne Scramble, and Atsion, New Jersey, sometimes with details of the bikes, the other riders, and how LaBelle fared in the race. A very few seem like they might have been taken in England or Europe. The images are unusually focused on bikes and racing, and except for a modest amount of images of midget race cars and contemporary sports cars, which LaBelle also apparently raced and designed, are almost entirely devoted to bikers and bike racing.A wonderfully chronology and subject specific accumulation of images.

        Lune Enchantée: Une Imagerie Racontée et Dessinée d'après le Conte de Charles Perrault, La Belle au Bois Dormant

      Paris: Adrien Maeght, 1973. First edition of this pictorial retelling of Sleeping Beauty, produced in the wake of the first moon landing, and set in outer space. Originally a designer of corporate logos and trademarks, the Swiss artist Warja Lavater had a genius for the right symbol. In the late 1950s, she began to translate classic fairy tales into visual language, using minimalist graphic codes and keys. Like her contemporary Bruno Munari, Lavater combined the conventions of the picture book with the ideal of the "book-object" to create a playful new kind of artist's book. The folding leporello format appealed to her as a medium, she explained, because it could "be transformed into sculpture, standing on the ground, or hung, unfolded, on the wall." The first of Lavater's folding "imageries" was William Tell, published by the Museum of Modern Art in 1962. Paris publisher Adrien Maeght issued a series of her symbolic fairy tales in the years to come, including Little Red Riding Hood (Le Petit Chaperon Rouge, 1965), Cinderella (Cendrillon, 1974), Snow White (Blanche Neige, 1974), and a smaller separate treatment of Sleeping Beauty (La Belle au Bois Dormant, 1974). This early galactic interpretation of Sleeping Beauty, bound with a hook for hanging, is unusual not only in its much larger size, but also in its incorporation of text into the visual narrative. The characters are represented by vibrantly colored symbols of the space age, with the princess as the sleeping moon in orbit, awaiting her rocketship prince. A fine copy. Single one-sided color lithographed pictorial sheet folded leporello-style, measuring 12 inches high x 73 inches long, original blue cloth spine and rear board, front board covered in color lithographed pictorial paper, front pastedown printed as title page, metal hook anchored on cloth below title for hanging. A few faint marks to front board.

        The First Collected Works. Centenary Limited Edition; [together with:] The Collected Essays. Centenary Limited Edition.

      London: Library of Imperial History in association with the Hamlyn Publishing Group Ltd, 1973–6 - Together, 38 volumes, octavo. Original full vellum with 22-carat gold blocking, including titles to spines, armorial device to front boards and ruling to spines and front boards, gilt edges, marbled endpapers, printed on Archive Long-Life Text Paper. Housed in the original green leatherette slipcases stamped with the Churchill arms in gilt. Typical natural variation to the tone of the vellum bindings but overall a bright set with a 2cms tear to the foot of the spine on volume 1. Slipcases lightly marked. Overall an excellent set. Illustrations throughout, as plates and to the text. First complete collected edition, one of 1,750 sets published. The Centenary Edition is the only full collected works of Winston Churchill, reproducing his 50 books in 34 volumes. The Library of Imperial History went bankrupt before the projected run of 3,000 sets could be completed, so "the print run never exceeded 2,000 copies and only 1,750 sets were ever published" (Cohen). "The specifications were titanic: five million words in 19,000 pages, weighing 19 lbs, taking up 4½ ft of shelf space. To achieve publication, 11 publishing houses in Great Britain, the United States and Canada released their individual copyrights in exchange for the promise that no other complete edition of Churchill works would be published until the expiration of international copyright in 2019" (Richard M. Langworth). This set is accompanied by the four-volume Centenary Limited Edition of Churchill's collected essays and journalistic writings, again intended to be limited to 3,000 sets, not always present. Cohen AA1; Langworth ICS AA1; Woods p. 391.
