First edition, first impression. One of 25 copies reserved by arrangement with Macmillan for fine binding by Zaehnsdorf. A lovely copy of this richly illustrated autobiography of the naval officer and statesman Mountbatten (1900-79). While not an exhaustive pictorial biography, this book includes numerous pictures selected by Mountbatten himself in the hope that they 'will give an insight into the varied, interesting and sometimes historic events in which I have been involved' (Foreword). The reader is offered glimpses into various aspects of Mountbatten's life, including his childhood as a member of the royal family, his naval and diplomatic careers, time spent in India, initially as the last Viceroy and then as the first Governor-General, as well as later charity work.

The very "first" first of Styron's masterpiece of, on one level, assumed societal and personal preconscious guilt, and on another."despite its macabre subject matter, the book is a paen to delirious, doomed hope, a raised Grail upon the Brooklyn Bridge to the unrelenting forgiveness in a spindly blade of grass emerging from a charred patch of Earth. Unwittingly or not, Styron has truly captured the tragedy and triumph of the Jewish experience: It is not about Judgment Day, only morning, beautiful and fair." [Amazon Review]. With the retained very fragile glassine jacket, quite rare. See scans. Strong Provenance to purchaser. L53n [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

As one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. After Pablo Picasso’s death in 1973, his granddaughter Marina authorized the printing of original lithographs, which have come to be known as the Picasso Estate Collection. These lithographs were meticulously created after the original works (oil paintings, watercolors, pastels, and charcoal drawings) by Master Chromist Marcel Salinas, who worked closely with Picasso in his lifetime. They are printed in an edition of 1000 on first-quality Arches paper. We find other examples of this same masterpiece for sale for $3,450!

About the book: "The Right Stuff is a 1979 book by Tom Wolfe about the pilots engaged in U.S. postwar experiments with experimental rocket-powered, high-speed aircraft as well as documenting the stories of the first Project Mercury astronauts selected for the NASA space program. The Right Stuff is based on extensive research by Wolfe, who interviewed test pilots, the astronauts and their wives, among others. The story contrasts the "Mercury Seven" and their families with test pilots such as Chuck Yeager, who was considered by many contemporaries as the best of them all, but who was never selected as an astronaut.".
