        Je t'aime moi non plus (Original photograph from the 1976 film)

      Paris: Président Films, 1976. Vintage black-and-white borderless single weight still photograph from the French release of the 1976 French film. Three stamps on the verso for Cine-Revue magazine (dated variously between 9/2/76 and 2/3/77), as well as a studio stamp for Président Films, crediting the title, Birkin, Dallesandro, and Gainsbourg. The petite waitress Johnny works and lives in a truck stop, lonely and longing for love. She develops a crush on the garbage truck driver Krassky, although her sleazy boss Boris warns her that Krassky is gay. Krassky likes Johnny too, perhaps because of her boyish physique. But both of them fail to notice the growing jealousy of Krassky's boyfriend Padovan, and trouble sets in. Billy Stevenson of notes in the "A Film Canon" blog: "Serge Gainsbourg directed this film based on his iconic song, and it plays as an extended gloss on that song, an attempt to visualize what was happening during those infamous sighs and pants ... It is a testament to Gainsbourg's commitment to the song, and his own status as sexual outlaw, that he presents us with a film that's just as confronting and titillating some 30 years later. "[Set] against a drifting, rambling desert backdrop, part New Wave, part New Hollywood. Johnny and Krassky's attraction is sexually charged, and yet it doesn't seem to conform to their sexual proclivities...with an audioverite that makes you wonder whether these scenes [might actually] involve real sex. In its yearning to experience sex in every conceivable way--as a gay man, as a lesbian, as a man, as a woman, as pleasure, as pain--[the film] ends up virtualizing it, or at least generalizing it into an undifferentiated sexual access that feels quite incorporeal, a clear forerunner to both the Cinema du Look and art porn movements." 9 x 6.3 inches (22.5 x 16 cm). Near Fine apart from some very faint impressions that come from the original notations on the verso.

A grace of intention shines through the oft times awkward alliance of efforts that produced them. They are redeemed by the confidence they express in the worth of the act memorialized. In this album the viewer and the viewed hold each other in balance. A world buried alive in our midst is unearthed to us. The photographer has brought it to us to see." Signed by Author.

The spine of the bos is faded with a little rubbing, everything else in extremely good condition. Classic Reynolds Stone with his eye for detail, total mastery of his medium and his ability to convey the glories of the English countryside as noone else could. The engravings are all of the artist's house, garden and wooded environs. With the little pamphlet bound in Reynolds Stone designed paper containing a poem "Litton Cheney, 1877" and an introduction about his house by Stone. "The house was discovered accidentally, in 1952. It was hidden by trees....We were on our way home...and stopped to look at the church; and below lay the rectory, empty. The garden and the stream bowled us over....In sorting books and papers I discovered my grandfather, ED Stone..had forestalled us. He had taken the living for the summer holidays of 1877. Letters from the Rector...survive; even a poem, describing the church and the garden and stream, turned into Latin verse by EDS" (Stone's grandfather). The pamphlet was printed at the Compton Press Tisbury in an edition of 500, the first 150 being for purchasers of the box of engravings.

        The Collected Essays of Sir Winston Churchill in four volumes

      London: Library of Imperial History, 1976. First edition. Hardcover. This is a full, four volume set of the first and only edition of ChurchillÂ’s Collected Essays. In 1976, the Library of Imperial History issued this set as a welcome follow-up to the Collected Works, which included only book-length publications. Both the content and aesthetics of this four-volume set are compelling, compiling most of Churchill's major forewords and periodical contributions, some of which can be otherwise found only in the original periodical publications. The essays are sorted by subject and each of the volumes has a theme - Churchill and War, Churchill and Politics, Churchill and People, and Churchill at Large. In addition to being bibliographically important, The Collected Essays are aesthetically appealing. The production quality is impressive. The text is printed on special 500-year archival paper and decorated with marbled endpapers, gilt top edge, and head and foot bands. There were two standard binding options for The Collected Essays - both sumptuous. The one offered here (the "Centenary Edition") is quarter blue morocco over blue cloth as opposed to the white vellum in which full sets of the Collected Works were typically bound. As a stand-alone set, the quarter blue morocco binding may be preferred. The binding is both more attractive and more durable than the white vellum, which can age poorly. In either binding, sets of the Collected Essays are desirable, both for content and shelf-presence. This set is in near fine condition, not pristine, but very clean with only a few trivial blemishes. The bindings remain square, clean, and tight with sharp corners with no discernible wear apart from a faint one inch diagonal scratch on the lower Volume IV spine. The contents are bright and clean, with no previous ownership marks or spotting. The gilt top edges remain clean and bright, as do the fore and bottom edges, with the minor exception of a trivial hint of staining to the Volume IV bottom edge. This is an important work, compelling for both the content and the shelf presence. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A286, Woods/ICS A146(b), Langworth p.355

        Life After Death

      London, England: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1976. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 272 pp. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Inscribed by Koestler on the front free endpaper: 'We shall have to wait and see... A.K. ". Although not named, this book was inscribed to Koestler's friend, British bibliophile, scholar and auctioneer Anthony Hobson. With Hobson's bookplate on the inside front cover. Includes a chapter by Arthur Koestler entitled "Whereof one cannot speak...?" and other contributions by Arnold Toynbee, Cottie A. Burland, Adrian Boshier, Crispin Tickell, Geoffrey Parrinder, Rosalind Heywood and others. Given Koestler's death by suicide in 1983 and his support for the cause of voluntary euthanasia, the subject matter of the book and its inscription render this a particular significant copy. Laid- in are 6 equally intriguing pieces of Koestler-related ephemera: a) The Royal Academy of Arts 'A Meeting to Honour the Memory of Arthur Koestler and Cynthia Koestler Thursday 7 April, 1983' memorial service booklet (with an intact copy of Koestler's suicide letter laid-in the booklet); b) Invitation to Koestler's memorial service. [Although not marked as such, both the invitation and the Memorial Service booklet belonged to Koestler's friend Anthony Hobson; c) Koestler's original obituary in The Times March 4, 1983; d) Two articles on Koestler in The Times accompanying the obituary; e) Original Sunday Times October 23 1976 review of this book. An important book with a significant essay by Arthur Koestler; a significant inscription to a close friend of his and important ephemera. This copy would make an absolutely superb addition to any Arthur Koestler collection.
