        Dangling Man [Signed]

      London John Lehmann 1946 First Impression ("First published in England 1946"). Small, slim 8vo: 191,[1]pp. Publisher's finely woven sunflower cloth, spine stamped in brown, in the superb pictorial pictorial dust jacket (price-clipped). Signed by Bellow on front fly leaf. Fine, tight (probably unread) and bright in close to Fine jacket with touch of usual darkening to spine and back panels but front panel still vivid. Fine ¶ First book, a slim, quiet masterpiece, from the Nobel prizewinning author of Herzog, Augie March and Henderson the Rain King. Joseph, the novel's protagonist, "is a would-be writer and intellectual caught waiting for the Draft, who romantically believes that intellectual and spiritual enlightenment is to be attained by isolating himself within the confines of a room in a cheap Chicago boarding house while he studies the great writers of the Enlightenment. It also reflects the 1940s preoccupation of American intellectuals with French existentialism and themes of individual freedom, the meaning of moral responsibility, death, and social contract. . . . [In it is] much of Bellow's early life as a young newly-wed intellectual, immersed in literature of all kinds, poor and ambitious, isolated in his in-laws' Ravenswood apartment writing his first novel on a card table in the back room. It is also the lament of a young American artist who does not know how to join the mainstream of Chicagoan or American life without losing the spiritual value of his isolation. Critics hailed Dangling Man as an important novel written with style and genuine mastery." (Literary Encyclopedia) Yet another example of the value to be found in the graphically superior designs of most UK editions of American authors's works. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Expanding Universe and the Origin of Elements

      Lancaster PA: American Institute of Physics, 1946. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of George Gamow's paper marking the beginning of the Big Bang Model. "The German physicist Carl Friedrich von Weizsacker had postulated in 1938 that most elements were formed in explosions similar to that taking place in Lemaitre's primeval atom, but he did not state clearly whether the birthplace was cosmological or stellar. The turning point came in 1946, when Gamow discussed quantitatively the role of nuclear processes in relativistic cosmologies. His brief 1946 paper on the expanding universe and the origin of elements marks the beginning of modern big bang theory" (Hetherington, Cosmology).Gamow, working with his graduate student Ralph Alpher, would spend the next two years developing his theory, culminating in the famous "Alpha-Beta-Gamma" paper (The Origin of Chemical Elements) of 1948.Particle Physics: One Hundred Years of Discoveries: "Gamow indication on the possibility to explain the observed chemical elements abundance-curve by assumption of unequilibrium process of elements formation during a limited interval of time.

        Churchill War Coalition Cabinet Presentation Medal.

      Cast and engraved bronze circular medal, 4 inches in diameter. A little oxidation otherwise a very good example preserved in remains of the original suede case (missing fold over flap) This medal was prepared at Churchill's personal instruction for presentation to senior members of the wartime coalition government and members of the armed forces following the end of the coaltion government in the General Elections of 1945. The medal was ordered in December 1945 and delivered in August 1946 for personal distribution by the former Prime Minister to some 133 individuals. Each recipient's name was engraved on the reverse, with the legend: "To ... from Winston Churchill". The obverse said "Salute the Great Coalition 1940-1945". This medal was presented to Robert Hudson. Robert Hudson (1886-1957) was Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries from 1940 to 1945. He came to the post with a reputation for hard work but his support for certain free trade practices was deemed harmful to England's farmers, and many wondered if Hudson was fit for the job. He proved more than able and was instrumental in ensuring that England didn't starve during the war. "With a determination, as Lord Winterton commented, 'to see that farmers and landowners alike used every acre of soil to help keep the nation from starvation' (Winterton, 272), Hudson and his junior minister, Tom Williams, undertook a massive organizational and publicity task. Through guaranteed prices and markets for most goods, and the development of a nationwide network of decentralized county and district committees involving local farmers themselves in the monitoring of land use, farming output was increased greatly. The acreage in England and Wales of wheat, for example, was by 1944 increased by 82 per cent, potatoes by 116 per cent, sugar beet by 24 per cent, and the total area under tillage by nearly 4.75 million acres (69 per cent)" (ODNB). Vita Sackville-West considered Hudson an ally, and in the opinion of many, he "'was by far the best of Ministers of Agriculture in either war' (Winterton, 272)" (ODNB). After the war, Hudson was made first viscount Hudson, retired from politics, and established a successful Friesian herd in Wiltshire. He died in Southern Rhodesia, where he had some farming interests Engstrom. The Medallic Portraits of Sir Winston Churchill No. 13

        Eight Manuscript Poems.

      (c. 1946). Octavo. (8)ff. A manuscript poetry chapbook handmade by Robert Frost and inscribed by the poet with the dedication, "A Preview / for Nita and Doc / from / R. F. / After a good Bread Loaf / 1946." "Doc" refers to Frost's friend Reginald Cook, a Middlebury professor who was the director of the Bread Loaf School of English for many years. Frost met Cook in the mid-1920s, and they remained friends until the poet's death in 1963. Cook kept written records of his conversations with Frost and transcribed his lectures, and he later published the book Dimensions of Robert Frost in 1958. This collection of poems was presented to Cook and his wife after his first session as director in 1946. The eight verses copied in Frost's hand are "To an Ancient," "Something to Hope For" (published as "Something for Hope"), "One Step Backward Taken," "Why Wait for Science," "But He Meant It" (re-titled "The Broken Drought"), "The Courage to Be New," "A Mood Apart," and "Bravado." These were a preview of some of Frost's new poems, all of which would be published in his 1947 collection Steeple Bush. Apart from the changes of title, most of the poems appear in the chapbook exactly as they would in publication. However, in the chapbook, "Courage to Be New" is followed by a four line postscript, and four changes in wording were made to lines in "Something for Hope." These changes reveal slight shifts in sound and sense, showing how Frost continued to edit and refine his work. Bound together in side-stitched self-wrappers. Very fine.

        Matthew Flinders' Narrative of his Voyage in the Schooner Francis: 1798. Preceded and Followed by Notes on Flinders, Bass, the Wreck of the Sidney Cove, &c, by Geoffrey Rawson.

      Small folio. Original green full morocco, blocked in gilt, top edges gilt; pp. 100[2]; 9 wood-engravings by John Buckland Wright, these printed in dark green; spine slightly darkened otherwise a very good copy in the slipcase. One of 750 numbered copies, this one of 100 specially bound.. "Another book of daring exploration in our Sea Series. I tried to produce these stories of high adventure in an exciting way, and planned to make the book a symphony in green." (Cockalorum 170). The author Geoffrey Rawson's own copy, with his bookplate. Also loosely inserted are: 1) A two page autograph letter (16.4.54) on Golden Cockerel Press headed paper from Christopher Sandford to Geoffrey Rawson (with a chip to top edge and some browning). Sandford, the proprietor of the Golden Cockerel Press, discusses the reviews that Rawson's Nelson's Letters had received. "The Birmingham Post gave us a splendid review; the TLS a long but stupid one - they would!; and Time and Tide a so-so one". He goes on to say that further review copies will be sent out. Sandford then makes an interesting economic point. "Times are not good for selling expensive books but I am satisfied with the progress of Nelson. I feel it is sterling worth and will continue to sell itself out slowly. Of course one cannot compare its sales with those of Flinders which came out at such a good time when everyone had money and little to spend it on." 2) A typed royalties statement (1 June 1955) to Geoffrey Rawson on Golden Cockerel Press headed paper detailing sales from 1954 - 1955. This statement would seem to confirm Sandford's assessment of the marketplace in the letter detailed above. In the year from April 1954 to March 1955 the Press sold 5 ordinary and 2 special copies of Nelson's Letters and 2 ordinary copies of Flinders' Narrative, netting Rawson a total of 2 pounds 8 shillings and 4 pence. 3) A short typed letter (22 May 1947) to Geoffrey Rawson from John King Davis, the dedicatee of the book, thanking him for the copy that had been sent to him and for the honour of the dedication, "Although I feel quite unworthy of the distinction you have conferred upon me, I am most appreciative of your kindness, and thank you for it." 4) A long autograph airletter from John King David to Geoffrey Rawson (6 June 1947). King fulsomely thanks Rawson again for dedicating the book to him before discussing the state of India. This leads into a discussion of what Rawson might include in his upcoming book on the Antarctic before discussing the sorry state of Australian politics.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED

      Hamden, CT, 1946. Two pages, in ink, on recto and verso of quarto sheet of personal letterhead. Old folds for mailing, otherwise fine. Folding cloth case. Addressed simply: "Gnädigste," and likely to Lucy Tal, his advisor on German language publication, and wife of Viennese publisher Ernest Peter Tal, who emigrated to the U.S. as a consequence of the war. Wilder writes in regard to a return to publication of his work in Germany, noting: "I'd practically forgotten about the war when that little British reminder crept up on me. As to the publishing, there's nothing I want out of it except one thing: since you are no longer publishing, I want my freedom, so as to start all over again. Herlitschka as the translator, but publication centered in Berlin. I've been told that whatever may be the legal, property status of the rights in Austria I am now free to make a separate German publishing arrangement. I'm not impatient myself, but the large amount of letters I get from Germany show that there are readers there waiting." In regard to another unspecified matter, he notes "I don't remember giving any advice ... My mistakes have been as helpful to me as my more judicious actions." He closes, extending Christmas and New Year wishes, noting "I'm starting off to Mexico on January 15th to work. work. work." Signed "Cordially Ever Thornton Wilder."

BOOKS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, WRAPPED IN PADDING, IN A BOX. In October 1941 the Vichy government decreed that statues of ?no artistic or historic importance? could be unbolted and used for scrap metal. In December, before the statues were sent to Germany to be melted down and at considerable risk to himself, the photographer Pierre Jahan photographed the requisitioned works in a warehouse yard in the XIIth arrondissement of Paris. The photographs were published in 1946 with text by Jean Cocteau. "Arguably the best French photobook to look back on the war in its immediate aftermath...these simple pictures of junked statues speak strongly about loss, about barbarism, about the trashing of culture, and other issues of great importance." [Parr & Badger] Photographs by Pierre Jahan; text by Jean Cocteau. #83 from an edition limited to 450 copies and 25 hors commerce. Unpaginated, printed on Velin pur fil de Lana, with Cocteau's handwritten preface in facsimile laid-in, as issued [52 pages]; 20 full-page gravure-printed b&w plates; 10.25 x 13.25 inches.
