Burbank: Warner Brothers, 1955. First Edition. The archive of material which belonged to actor Jack Grinnage, who played "Moose", one of the three main hoods, in Rebel Without a Cause. Included are Grinnage’s shooting script which he had hardbound, his original vintage Warner Brother studio pass allowing him on the lot specifically mentioning him shooting Rebel, copies of daily call sheets and group of 16 still photographs.

The rare photos, with Grinnage’s notes on the back, include two of a late night rea ... Read more

1971. Near Fine/Near Fine. A group of books from the personal collection of Elsa Schiaparelli (1890-1974) one of the world's premiere fashion designers during the '20s and '30s, whose popularity once rivaled Coco Chanel. Schiaparelli pioneered numerous now-iconic fashion staples such as the divided skirt, first worn by tennis player Lili de Alvarez at Wimbledon in 1931; trompe-l'oeil detailing in knitwear; the recasting of fasteners such as zippers, buttons, and hooks as featured fashion elements; the early adoption of synthetic materials such as rayon, acrylic, and cellophane into high fashion; and her incorporation of playful, surrealist design into fashion through collaboration with friends Jean Cocteau, Leonor Fini, and Salvador Dali, with whom she created the Lobster Dress made famous by Wallis Simpson.Her interest in books was likely fostered by her father a renowned Italian scholar and dean of The University of Rome.With the exception of BEMELMANS, Ludwig.

London: Macmillan and Co., 1894. First edition. Hardcover. John Lockwood Kipling. This is a compelling set of British first editions of perhaps Kipling’s most famous works – the first and second Jungle Books. These copies were previously owned by Churchill’s friends and publishers, Frank and Nelson Doubleday, and apparently used by Nelson to prepare Doubleday’s 1946 editions. Ironically, Kipling’s quintessential tales of India were conceived in Vermont, where Kipling and his father, John Lockwood Kipling (1837-1911) “worked together in the closest harmony… as the two sat smoking their pipes and plotting out fresh stories together.” (Allen, Kipling Sahib, p.328) Here Mowgli was born, the infant found by Father Wolf, saved from Shere Khan, and tutored in the Laws of the Jungle by Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear. “The pen took charge, and I watched it begin to write stories about Mowgli and the animals, which later grew into the Jungle Books.” Kipli ...

These books detail his dedication and devotion to the ship which is almost constantlt on the water in season.

Adelaide, Paris Nesbit (to Number 15), then John Newton Wood, 1900 and 1901. Foolscap folio, [242] pages. Each issue drop-title as issued, in contemporary flush-cut cloth-backed papered boards; cloth renewed; boards lightly worn at the extremities and a little marked; the contents are in fine condition. Number 32, the first one in Volume 2, is a different format - shorter and wider - and the leading margins are folded back 40 mm. 'The small religious newspaper "Morning" was founded in 1900 by the gifted but unbalanced lawyer, Paris Nesbit. The newspaper was initially used largely as a vehicle for his personal views on religion and Adelaide society. Nesbit unashamedly stated that the newspaper was his own voice and would be run "as Christ would if He were subject to the present limitations of my faculties" ... Nesbit and his family - in particular his sister Agnes Benham - were interested in the "new thought" movement of the 1890s, with its socialism and sexual reform.... Ear ... Read more

London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1908. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This first edition, only printing of Churchill's travelogue on Britain's possessions in East Africa, written while he was serving as Undersecretary of State for the Colonies, is doubly noteworthy – for being both a presentation copy and for provenance. This copy is embossed in two lines on the upper right of the title page with the words "PRESENTATION | COPY." Churchill’s bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen, cites 8,161 copies of the cloth-bound British first edition, of which 7870 were sold and "291 were distributed gratis." This copy is undoubtedly one of these 291. We have encountered only two other copies embossed thus, and one of which also bore an original publisher’s review slip, corroborating both early and gratis distribution. Provenance is compelling, this copy having been owned by Labour M.P. James Henry Thomas (1874-1949) who twice served as Secretary of State for the Colonies, in ... Read more

Three oblong octavos; one oblong quarto. All appear to be presentations to Simons, who appears to be the featured guest or speaker.

Some are captioned. Images include Simons speaking at banquets with local dignitaries, many sari-clad dancing girls, pictures of Simons in the streets, etc.Curiously we could find relatively little about Simons, although his son Thomas W.
