Description:
New York and Cleveland: The World Publishing Company, 1970. First edition of Serge Lifar's intimate, revealing autobiography. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title page. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. French ballet dancer and choreographer Serge Lifar is widely regarded as one of the greatest male ballet dancers of the 20th century and the world's most outstanding choreographers. At the outbreak of the second world war, he took on a secret liaison job to protect French artistic interests from German assault. His account of his adventures in France during the Nazi scourge is as exciting as a war novel, and provides an important first ad-account of the behind-the-scenes intrigue, plots, and counterplots of those years.

Description:
Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1993. First edition of this work by the Nobel Prize-winning economist. Octavo, original cloth. Signed and dated by Robert Shiller on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Arguing that we have largely inadequate financial markets, dealing with relatively small risks, Robert Shiller makes a unique set of proposals for marketizing the biggest economic risks faced by society today, risks that really matter to most people. The new markets could diminish the impact of international economic fluctuations and reduce the inequality of wealth. He proposes new international markets for claims on national incomes, on components and aggregates of national incomes, and for property such as real estate, and argues that these markets might dwarf our stock markets in their activity and significance. He challenges the widespread presumption that any such new market would be infeasible, by offering solutions to technical problems of measurement and settlement. There are… Read more

Madame de Treymes, Edith Wharton's first publication after the highly successful The House of Mirth, is a captivating portrait of turn-of-the-century American and French culture.

Jacket design by Milton Glaser. Housed in a custom clamshell box. The Magic Barrel, has been recognized as a classic from the time it was published in 1959. The stories are set in New York and in Italy (where Malamud's alter ego, the struggling New York Jewish Painter Arthur Fidelman, roams amid the ruins of old Europe in search of his artistic patrimony); they tell of egg candlers and shoemakers, matchmakers, and rabbis, in a voice that blends vigorous urban realism, Yiddish idiom, and a dash of artistic magic. "In the short story, Malamud achieved an almost psalmlike compression. He has been called the Jewish Hawthorne, but he might just as well be thought a… Read more

Description:
New York: Random House, 1960. The Magic Christian is a 1959 comic novel by American author Terry Southern about an odd billionaire Guy Grand who spends most of his time playing elaborate practical jokes on people. It is known for bringing Southern to the attention of filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, who had received a copy as a gift from Peter Sellers, and subsequently hired him as co-writer for Dr. Strangelove (1964) when Kubrick decided to make that film a black comedy/satire, rather than a straightforward thriller. It was the basis for the 1969 British satirical black comedy film directed by Joseph McGrath and starring Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr, with appearances by John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Raquel Welch, Spike Milligan, Christopher Lee, Richard Attenborough and Roman Polanski. It was loosely adapted from the 1959 comic novel The Magic Christian by the American author Terry Southern, who co-wrote the screenplay adaptation with McGrath. The film also features pre-Monty Python appearances of John… Read more
