        POSTER - Plaza de Toros de Vista-Alegre - Bilbao

      Ortega, Valencia 1946 - This is not a book but a wonderfully colourful ORIGINAL 1946 Spanish Bullfighting Poster. Measuring 104cm x 54.5cm, it is by J. Reus and it advertises a bullfighting event in Bilbao for 24 March 1946 starring the matadors Pedro Robredo, Ricardo Baldera de Mejico and Lorenzo Pascual Belmonteno. The poster was printed by Ortega of Valencia and it bears the printer's name at the bottom and also the square stamp of authenticity to the lower right side with a print number of 1572. The brittle poster, whilst all original, has folds and creases, as well as light damage to the top edge. All of this could be rectified by a skilled archivist and, of course, the poster would be best conserved by professional linen-backing. We believe that few of these would have survived so long in anything approaching collectable condition, as they were meant to be pasted up on billboards. Our shop acquired this poster (one of a collection of 5) many years ago from a customer who used to live in Spain. We're now having a clear out of our basement and we have decided to put it on sale internationally. The poster will be sent, well packed, in a sturdy tube. Please note that by selling such a piece of original art, we do not necessarily approve of or support the sport of bullfighting.

      (New York): New Directions. (1946, 1948, 1949, 1951, 1958). First. First editions. Five volumes. A somewhat worn set of the first editions, lacking the dustwrappers. Poet and critic Karl Shapiro's copies with his ownership signature in each of the first four volumes and his notes in each volume. Shapiro has marked the number of each volume (in Roman numerals) on the front board and on the spine. Shapiro was an important if not easily classifiable poet. He rejected both the "new criticism" and the pragmatists and instead settled on Walt Whitman and William Carlos Williams as his models for great American poetry. His championship of Williams' poetry, and particularly of Paterson, was influential in establishing the high regard in which the work is now held. A magnificent association copy of one of the great American poem cycles. Connolly 100. .

        THE CASE OF THE BACKWARD MULE (Superb Presentation Copy of the First Edition)

      New York: William Morrow, 1946. Gardner, Erle Stanley. THE CASE OF THE BACKWARD MULE. New York: William Morrow, 1946. First Edition, first printing. A NEAR FINE copy (minor edge-wear, tiny bit of discoloration to the bottom edge) in a beautiful and bright NEAR FINE ORIGINAL PRICED ($2.50) DUST JACKET. SUPERB PRESENTATION INSCRIPTION BY THE AUTHOR in the year of publication relating directly to the Chinatown setting of the novel: "To Tee Rose/ from a guy who thinks she turns in some real writin'/ And may Chow Kok Koh [a character in this mystery] show you that the hill never seems so steep as just before the top/ Love from/ Yours/ Erle." Underneath the inscription, Erle Stanley Gardner has added his full signature followed by the date: June 1946. Tee Rose, a young writer from San Francisco, became a lifelong friend of ESG and she always received Gardner's latest book in the mail -- usually immediately upon publication. We have in stock quite a few of his presentation copies to her dating from 1934 to the early 1960s. THE CASE OF THE BACKWARD MULE is the second and last China-flavored Terry Clane mystery, the previous Terry Clane mystery MURDER UP MY SLEEVE having been published nine years earlier in 1937. Terry Clane is a government secret agent who has harnessed some of the spiritual power of his Far East experiences to deal some very deadly mysteries in San Francisco's Chinatown. . Signed by Author.

        Heed the Thunder

      Greenberg, New York 1946 - First edition. A fairly worn, but presentable, good only copy lacking the dustwrapper. This copy Inscribed by the author in pencil: "For Lois and Jim[?] very gratefully Jim Thompson 2-20-46." We do not know who the recipients were, but curiously, the dedicatees were Lois and Elliott McDowell. Whether this is the same Lois, with another companion is not immediately clear to us. Books signed by Thompson are very rare. We have sold three other books signed by Thompson in the past 20 years, and of those, two were considerably later paperback titles. The only other inscribed hardcover was another copy of this title inscribed about ten months after this one, thus making this the earliest inscribed Thompson book we have seen. To put it in context, we have handled more books signed by either J.D. Salinger or Thomas Pynchon than we have of Thompson. A superb copy of an exceptionally uncommon book, the second of only three hardcover novels published during the hardboiled author's lifetime. See this book in 3D on our site.

        ALL THE KING'S MEN

      NY: Harcourt Brace & Co., (1946) - First Edition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning modern literary classic, a highspot of modern literature. The landmark novel, more than loosely based on the career of famed Louisiana governor Huey Long, was the basis for the 1949 Academy Award-winning film (which took Oscars for Best Picture, and for actors Broderick Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge). A new film adaptation opened late in 2005, starred Sean Penn, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, James Gandolfini and Anthony Hopkins. First Editions of this scarce title are rare indeed, and a copy of this extraordinary quality would be hard to beat. A lovely, perfectly fine copy in an extremely close to fine dust jacket, bright, crisp, non-price-clipped, and with the most miniscule, barely noticeable, shallow chipping -- hardly discernable -- and only to the top fold of the front panel. All The King's Men lists at #36 on the Random House/Modern Library 100 Best Books of the Century. It is highly unlikely a finer copy can be found. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
