      Charles Scribner's Sons / Junior Literary Guild / Scribners, New York 1947 - Charles Scribner's Sons / Junior Literary Guild 1947. New York. Caldecott honor/runner-up recipient for 1948. Bright and beautiful, both book and original rare DJ. Book is in INCREDIBLE condition. Barely any rubbing to edges. Corner shows the very least amount of pushing. Barely of note, rather a hyper-critical disclosure. Red Cloth is BRIGHT red and clean. Inside front panel has a neatly written name, teacher's name and address with the date of Jan 30, 1948. Internally, clean, tight and bright. This book looks as if it was preserved from the day of purchase. FFEP has a most faint crease to corner. DJ shows a couple of closed tears and rubbing around edges at foot and crown of DJ backstrip. A few light instances of soiling and scuffing to DJ. DJ is not as nice as the beautiful book but still, very attractive. This is an incredible rare copy of classic children's literature. The condition of the book is almost hard to believe considering it is a children's picture book from the 1940s. Some of the white in the pictures is camera flash reflecting off of the removable DJ protector. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Corrected Typescript Signed of his novel, The Homunculus

      Underwood, 55 Broad St., Stroudsburg, Monroe Co., Pa., jan. 1947 - David H. Keller, M.D. (1880-1966), was born in Philadelphia and educated at the University of Pennsylvania. After practicing medicine for more than a decade, he became an neuropsychiatrist in 1914, and subsequently practiced in state hospitals in Louisiana, Tennessee, and again in Pennsylvania. Keller served in the U.S. Army Medical Corps in both World Wars, and retired with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. A prolific writer "better known for his sf - than for his fantasy and horror, which is in fact superior" (Mike Ashley in the Encyclopedia of Fantasy), Keller was a frequent contributor to Weird Tales as well as to numerous early fan publications; some of his works were first published in France, and his bibliography is complex. Keller's first work in the field of fantasy and science fiction appeared in 1928; his first published novel was The Devil and the Doctor (1940). The Homunculus was published by Prime Press of Philadelphia in 1949. This typescript is signed "David H. Keller M.D." on the title leaf and bears more than 100 authorial corrections, sometimes extensive. These are chiefly in ink with an occasional pencilled or typed alteration 4to. [3], 177 leaves, with numerous autograph corrections in ink. Signed on title-leaf. Contemporary black buckram, title in gilt on spine. Fine. Currey, pp. 274-275 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Charles Scribner's Sons [1947], New York - Octavo, cloth. The importance of this book cannot be overstated, as it is the first published novel (in book form), by one of the major, if not the most, important science fiction writer of post-war America. Heinlein established himself in the field of science fiction during the golden age of Astounding Science Fiction (starting in 1939), he would later introduce a generation of baby boomer children to this literary genre. After World War II, Heinlein's career expanded the reach of the genre by being published in the 'slick' magazines of the period (Saturday Evening Post and others) and he also began a series of juvenile novels to be published by the mainstream firm of Charles Scribner's Sons. Their reach was wide, especially into the library marketplace were many young children would encounter them. This title is ".the first US juvenile sf novel to reflect the new levels of characterization, style and scientific plausibility now expected in the field", ".it was the first in a series that represents the most important contribution any single writer has made to children's SF." Clute and Nicholls: The Science Fiction Encyclopedia (1994), p. 554-557. "A pioneering novel that began American mainstream science fiction for children and combined young protagonists, gadgetry, current science, and adventure in such a way that even today the book retains interest." Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 5-62. George Pal's 1950 film Destination Moon is loosely based on ROCKET SHIP GALILEO. Heinlein co-authored the screenplay and served as a technical advisor to the production, along with German rocket expert Hermann Oberth. Destination Moon, the first of Pal's many sf films, "has great historical importance: its commercial success initiated the sf film boom of the 1950s, after a decade that had contained almost no sf cinema at all. It has interest in hindsight, too, in the partial accuracy with which it anticipated the actual Moon landing of 1969. To this day, Destination Moon stands as a film obvious made by people who knew about science." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Science Fiction Encyclopedia (1994), p. 324. A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket, touch of rubbing to extremities, touch of shelf wear to head of spine panel, small abrasion to front panel. Printed price of $2.00 to jacket flap.

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company, [post- 1947].. Pictorial cloth. Spine slightly cocked, cloth a bit faded. Internally clean. About very good in imperfect dust jacket (large portion of spine panel lacking). An exceptional association copy of this 5th printing of the Little, Brown edition, with a full-page presentation inscription from Dobie to man of letters and social activist John Howard Griffin: "...Legions of devils & quite a few angels - most of them unaware - have prevented my getting this off to you sooner. Now I send it with affectionate good wishes while I look forward to what the Mexican earth says to you, or, rather tells you something to say ... A fine letter on Censorship you wrote." The inscription is dated in Austin, 25 February 1962, in the year following the appearance in book form of Griffin's most widely known work, BLACK LIKE ME, an account of his six-weeks of travel in 1959 in the South after having his skin chemically darkened. In the wake of the publication of the periodical and book forms of his narrative, Griffin came under considerable attack, both in Texas and elsewhere, for his exposure of deeply ingrained racial inequities, his life was threatened, and he was hanged in effigy in his Texas hometown. As a consequence, for a period he moved, with his wife and four children, to Mexico for safety. As two of the most prominent Progressives in Texas, Dobie and Griffin were, for the many years of their friendship, allied in the waging of a number of significant battles for social justice and intellectual integrity, including almost legendary battles against censorship in Texas. This book, which many consider Dobie's best, is an account of the northern regions of Mexico, much of it based on his own experiences, and his gift of it to Griffin, then in refuge there, renders it a particularly evocative association copy.

      NY: Viking Press, 1947. 1st edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Finnegan's Wake was Joyce's last work and has received increased and growing accolades over the years. As comic prose, the structure is formed around convoluted, complex word puns with references to intellectual, scientific, and literary sources. Stream of consciousness, literary allusions, and free dream association develop an unique language. To further complicate the reading, the sentence fragment at the end of the book is the beginning of the sentence that begins the book as a fragment. Owner book plate. This a 1st US edition, 5th printing.

      Boston: The House of Edinboro, Publishers. (1947). First. First edition. 315pp., illustrated. Fine in very good or better dustwrapper with modest chipping near the crown. Inscribed by the author to the highest ranking African-American officer to serve in the Second World War: "To Brigadier Gen. B.O. Davis, A great leader. Arthur F. Furr, Author. Flag Day. June 14, 1954." Furr served in WWI, and afterwards co-wrote The American Negro Soldier with the Red Hand of France, a good regimental history of the 372nd Colored Infantry Regiment.

        Biblioteca Hispano Americana Setentrional o Catalogo y Noticias de los Literatos que o nacidos o educados, o florecientes en la America Septentrional Espanola, han dado a luz algun escrito, o lo han dejado preparado para la prensa. 1521 - 1850

      Ediciones Fuente Cultural, Mexico City 1947 - Two volumes, 19.5 x 15 cm, pp Five volumes in two, plus supplements. Five hundred numbered copies were done of this edition, in 5 volumes, and "ademas se tiraron algunos ejemplares en papel biblia." of which our copy is one of these. This set of Beristain, the last published, incorporates all the additions and emendations made by Leon, Icazbalceta, Medina, etc., right up through Henry Wagner. In addition, reference sections, e.g. on "marcos de fuego," and Genaro Estrada's "160 Notas Bibliograficas," and several very useful indices not contained in the original. In short, the best edition of Beristain, who, in turn, is absolutely essential for studying colonial Mexico. Every author is located biographically, with his works enumerated. Is is true that the entries are not up to the modern critical standards -- the work was written over many years ending only at his death in 1817, though additions have been made in this edition up to 1850 . Not at all common on the market. Fine copies in publisher's blind-stamped cloth. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
