         I don't wanna miss Mississippi - autograph manuscript score from the collection of Jack Teagarden.

      New York: 1961 - Large oblong folio (440 × 180 mm), red ownership stamps of Jack Teagarden on front and rear covers, along with the ink-stamped title and additional small stamp "Arr. by Sid Feller", dated May 25, 1961 in pencil. 10-page manuscript in graphite and red pencil, scored for trumpet, clarinet, trombone, drums, piano and bass. Staples rusted and with some associated discolouration, folded at the centre, else very good. Autograph manuscript musical arrangement of the popular song by Seger Ellis in the hand of Sid Feller. Teagarden's wife, Addie, gave this copy to a friend, explaining that it was apparently was used by Teagarden for his 1961 recording of this song, which appeared on his Misery and the Blues LP of that year. The American musician, conductor and arranger Sid Feller worked with Teagarden in the 30s, and again after the Second World War, before becoming a record producer, arranger and conductor for first Capitol Records and then ABC, working with such artists as Peggy Lee, Mel Torme, Jackie Gleason, Nancy Wilson, Dean Martin, Edye Gorme and Paul Anka. In 1960, he began a long collaboration with Ray Charles following Charles' departure from Atlantic Records. Charles' style changed considerably with his move to ABC. To die-hard R & B fans, the shift to a more mainstream repertoire and the introduction of string and vocal choir arrangements was criticised, and Feller took much of the blame. Charles, however, not only made a conscious choice to broaden his approach but gave Feller much of the credit for making it possible. On the breakthrough album, Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music, Charles said, "Sid researched the hell out of it and came up with 250 tunes. I picked the ones I liked, and of the ones I picked, they were all new to me except 'Bye Bye, Love'". The album produced Charles' biggest career hit, 'I can't stop loving you'. Charles was later to remark, "If they call me a genius, Sid Feller is Albert Einstein".

Typography, binding, and jacket design by Warren Chappell; illustrations by Sidonie Coryn. Original single volume edition in very good condition in same wrapper. "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" is for both seasoned cooks and beginners who love good food & long to reproduce at home the savory delights of the classic cuisine, from the historic Gallic masterpieces to the seemingly artless perfection of a dish of spring-green peas. This beautiful book, with over 100 instructive illustrations, is revolutionary in its approach because: It leads the cook infallibly from the buying and handling of raw ingredients, through each essential step of a recipe, to the final creation of a delicate confection. It breaks down the classic cuisine into a logical sequence of themes and variations rather than presenting an endless and diffuse catalogue of recipes; the focus is on key recipes that form the backbone of French cookery and lend themselves to an infinite number of elaborations bound to increase anyone's culinary repertoire.

         Lady and the Monster / The Day the Earth Caught Fire (Original screenplays, Forrest J. Ackerman's copy)

      Republic Pictures / Pax Films / Universal Pictures, Los Angeles / London 1961 - Forrest J. Ackerman's copy of scripts from two key science fiction films, bound together (including original front wrappers) in red buckram, with Ackerman's name in gilt at the bottom right corner of the front board. "The Lady and the Monster": Shooting script for the 1944 film. The first of three adaptations of Curt Siodmak's classic 1942 novel, in which an honest, hard-working scientist preserves a dead man's brain, only to be remote-controlled by it. Shot by the legendary John Alton at the very peak of his work in the mid-1940s. Yellow front studio wrapper, noted as SHOOTING SCRIPT at the top right, dated October 13, 1943, a penciled notation of the working title, "The Lady and the Monster" just below the printed title, noted as production No. 1194, and with credits for associate producer George Sherman and Republic Studios at the bottom. Two-page cast of characters, with the actors' names added in ribbon copy type just below the character names. Title page present, with credits for director Sherman and novelist Siodmak. 94 leaves, mimeograph, with blue, yellow, green, and pink revision pages leaves dated variously between 10/18/43 and 11/8/43. Pages and wrapper about Near Fine."The Day the Earth Caught Fire": An early and apparently abandoned draft by director Val Guest to film his screen story for Pax Films as a five-part British serial. Guest ultimately directed the story as a feature-length movie for Pax, one of the most understated and intelligent science fiction films ever made. Light green wrappers (both front and rear wrappers present). The front wrapper reads: "A Five Part Serialisation of / THE DAY THE EARTH CAUGHT FIRE / A Val Guest Production." Just below, in holograph ink (and in what we would assume is Guest's hand) is written, "Dedicated to Brian Aldiss." We think it likely that the script was gifted to the very connected Ackerman by Guest, though the provenance beyond Ackerman's ownership is unknown. 41 pages, divided into five parts, each beginning with a two-color memo on PAX stationery describing what will happen in the following section. Pages and wrapper about Near Fine.Buckram binding containing the two scripts is Very Good, with some light scuffing and soil.Martin 413. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Pharmacopoea Leodiensis in qua describuntur medicamenta ... in tres partes distributa. In prima simplicia omnia. In altera composita Galenica. In tertia chimica remedia.Liège, Everard Kints, 1741. 4to. With title-page in red and black with the woodcut bearing from the coat of arms of the city of Liege, the engraved arms of the dedicatee (the Bishop of Liège) facing the dedication. Contemporary tanned sheepskin, rebacked (gold-tooled spine).

      Daems & Vandewiele, pp. 169-170 (7 copies); A. Guislain, “A propos de la pharmacopée Liégeoise”, Bulletin Cercle Benelux d'Histoire de la Pharmacie XXVII (October 1961), pp. 1-5; UniCat (6 copies); WorldCat (5 copies). Rare first and only early edition of the only pharmacopoeia for the city of Liège in the Austrian Southern Low Countries (now Belgium), largely independent of its predecessors in other cities whether in the Low Countries or elsewhere. Some of the medicinal recipes appear to be local in origin. It may occasionally borrow from the 1727 Dispensatorium pharmaceuticum Austriaco-Viennense, which was officially made mandatory for use in the Austrian Low Countries in 1737, but it copies neither the structure nor the recipes. The text (in Latin, though some of the preliminaries are in French) is divided into three parts: the first provides a classified list of nearly a thousand simples; the second provides recipes for hundreds of compound medicines; and the third provides recipes for about a hundred chemical medicines. Some of the compound medicines are unusually complex. Also unusual are the appendix giving prices of medicines and the list of 87 doctors, pharmacologists and surgeons enrolled in the Liège Collegium Medicinae.With an owner's inscription of the Liège pharmacist H.N. Fraigneux and 4 full pages of 18th and 19th-century manuscript notes in the endpapers. Slight browning and occasional foxing, but otherwise in good condition and with generous margins. The binding is structurally sound with the new parts in good condition and with the old endpapers preserved, except for the front paste-down, which has been replaced. The only Liège pharmacopoeia: an essential source for the medical history of Liège, Maastricht and their surroundings.
