        [Typescript]: Summer and Smoke

      January 1947. Carbon typescript. Quarto. (4), 147, (1)pp. Sheets bradbound in the blue "Liebling-Wood" folder of Williams's agent, Audrey Wood. The light blue wrappers are moderately worn with wear to the extremities with tears and chips, the page ends are also worn, and the brads have pulled through the front wrap and part of the first page, about very good. The typescript for Williams's 1948 play about a refined minister's daughter from Glorious Hill, Mississippi, who falls for the unsophisticated young doctor who lives next door.This early version of the play, labeled "January 1947," is the one used during its first production in Dallas, Texas, in July 1947 by Margo Jones, before its New York debut in October of the following year. Though it ran for 102 weeks it was considered something of a disappointment as a follow-up to Williams's incredibly successful A Streetcar Named Desire" which immediately preceded it. The play was revived in 1952 off Broadway with a now legendary performance by Geraldine Page as Alva, and was later made into a 1962 film directed by Peter Glenville with Laurence Harvey, Rita Moreno, and Page, who received an Oscar nomination for best actress. .

        The Wayward Pressman

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday and Company, 1947 First edition. Inscribed by Liebling on the front free endpaper: "For Alfred Byers / A. J. Liebling". Publisher's gray cloth, lettered in dark green; in the original pictorial dust jacket, with a red, dark green and white title label over a newspaper background in gray and black, lettered in white and dark green. Very good, with some wear and rubbing to the extremities, light rubbing to the boards, bright and clean interior; price-clipped dust jacket, with some wear and nicks to the extremities, jacket splitting at the flaps but still intact, light toning to the spine, minor soiling to the rear panel. Overall, a bright and presentable copy. Inscriptions by Liebling are extremely rare. The Wayward Pressman is a collection of A. J. Libeling's newspaper articles in which he reflects on his "life with newspapers," which "began long before [he] first worked on one, in 1925." This collection takes its title from The New Yorker's "The Wayward Press," a column analyzing American journalism, originally written by humorist Robert Benchley. Liebling took over the column in 1945, and, although he wrote hundreds of articles for The New Yorker, it is the 82 pieces he wrote for this column that Liebling is best remembered. In The Wayward Press, Liebling addresses his own affinity for newspapers, the differences between newspapers and other printed texts, and the role of the journalist in society, in addition to his evaluations of the priorities and performances of various American newspapers. Himself an avid newspaper reader, Liebling infuses his Wayward Press pieces with his own passion and "affectionate needling," making the column well-written, insightful, and extremely entertaining.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

      New York The Vanguard Press, Inc. 1947 - First Edition, In Dust Jacket BELLOW, Saul. The Victim. New York: The Vanguard Press, Inc., [1947]. First edition. Octavo (8 1/8 x 5 1/2 inches; 205 x 140 mm). [8], [1]-294, [2, blank] pp. Original full black cloth, blue lettering on spine. Top edge blue, fore-edge uncut. With original pictorial dust jacket. Sight foxing to endpapers and inner flaps of the dust jacket. Back panel of the dust jacket with a small closed tear. Otherwise near fine. This author’s first two books (Dangling Man and The Victim, 1947) had a profound impact on the mid-twentieth century literary scene. "Together, they effectively introduced a new style of American fiction. The "Gentile" era of Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and Faulkner began, with Bellow, to give way to a new Jewish tradition and a sense of moral and social alarm. Bellow’s characters are generally anti-heroes caught up in the existential dilemma of trying to define themselves with some measure of dignity despite the constant impediments of objective and subjective circumstances." (Benet’s The Reader’s Encyclopedia, fourth edition.) Bellow is the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize (for Humbolt’s Gift, 1975,) and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1976.
