        Under the Volcano

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1947. New York: Reynal & Hitchcock,, 1947. Octavo. Original grey cloth, spine and front cover lettered in red. With the printed dust jacket. First US edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To my sister Priscilla with devotion from her brother Malcolm." Former silent screen star Priscilla Bonner (1899–1996) was not Lowry's sister by birth, but the elder sister of Lowry's wife, Margerie, the dedicatee of the book and widely credited with shaping its final form. The book was published simultaneously in Britain and America: it "was poorly received in Britain and soon remaindered, but was hailed as a work of genius in North America, becoming a best-seller" (ODNB).

        SUR REVISTA TRIMESTRAL.

      Buenos Aires. July 1937 through November 1947. - Whole numbers 34 through 74, 95 through 128, and 141 through 158. Bound up in sixteen volumes, wrappers bound in, for James Laughlin. Occasional sunning or dust marking to bindings, occasional text blocks tanned, as usual, but very good or better. Edited by Victoria Ocampo, at various times in association with Jorge Luis Borges, Waldo Frank, Ortega y Gasset, Alfonso Reyes and others. Perhaps the most important Latin American periodical of its times. Eventually 371 numbers were published through 1992 (though many were multiple numbers in later years). Borges was a frequent contributor - as associate editor, as reviewer, and as contributor of original fiction (as well as H. Bustos Domecq); several of his major books appeared under the SUR imprint. Other contributors to SUR during the course of its life included L. Hughes, Huxley, Gropius, Michaux, Masters, Reyes, Heidegger, Maritain, Benda, Mistral, Gide, Breton, Eluard, Berdayev, Malraux, Jimenez, Steinbeck, Amado, G. Greene, J. Stafford, Eliot, Camus, Koestler, Shaw, et al. Significant attention was paid to contemporary writing and film, and to understanding movements, including Surrealism.

      cm. 18 x 26, brossura, bs. - pagine variabili (vedi elenco). Questa splendida rivista quadrimestrale è una straordinaria e rilevante operazione culturale che, sulla spinta del fervore del dopoguerra, affronta con ampio spirito critico e costruttivo, una schiera di grandi problemi di attualità , con positivi intenti di divulgazione scientifica. Una prerogativa della rivista è quella di presentare sullo stesso argomento commenti a più voci, spesso in contrasto ed in opposizione tra di loro, il che rende il dibattito molto interessante. Maria Luisa Astaldi (Tricesimo UD 1899 - Roma 1982) ne è la fondatrice e la vera e propria anima; viene affiancata fino al n. 12 del 1950 da Raffaele Contu E POI PROSEGUE DA SOLA .. Ha la magistrale abilità di affiancarsi da straordinari collaboratori e studiosi delle varie discipline che condivisero con passione ed entusiasmo l'idea divulgativa iniziale (Alatri, Arbasino, Barberi Squerotti, Binni, Sinisgalli, G. C. Argan,m Titta Rosa, Gabriele Pepe, A. Savinio, I. Silone, L.Venturi, Balla, Spadolini, Bontempellil, Ugo Spirito, Anceschi, Candeloro, Jemolo, Lajolo, Sanguineti, Terracini, Verdone, B. Zevi e tantissimi altri). L'elenco dei titoli - (argomenti - monografici per ogni fascicolo) - è significativo per sottolineare il respiro e la profondità di questa straordinaria collezione. Sono state conservate tutte le copertine, tutti fascicoli sciolti , ognuno ha preziosi indici per una facile consultazione. n. data titolo pagine 1 mag - 47 Civiltà atomica dal 2 ago - 47 Offese di guerra e restauri al patrimonio artistico 1 3 nov - 47 l problema della regione nella vita italiana al 4 gen - 48 L'idea dell'Europa 5 non c'è Le ideologie del mondo contemporaneo 6 lug - 48 La XXIV Biennale di Venezia 6 809 7 ott - 48 Magia e scienza dal 8 apr - 49 Il problema della casa in Italia 7 9 giu - 49 L'ERP e l'Italia al 10 dic - 49 Europa - Africa 11 apr - 50 Le Lettere italiane a metà di questo secolo 12 giu - 50 La XXV Biennale di Venezia 12 755 da qui la direzione è soltanto di Maria Luisa Astaldi 13 dic - 50 Il dramma del socialismo dal 14 apr - 51 La polemica sulla musica 19 15 inv 51 - 52 Occidente e Oriente al 16 primav 52 Mezzo secolo di progressi in medicina 17 inv 52 - 53 La rotta del Po 18 primav 53 L'omosessualità e la società moderna 18 764 19 autun 53 Perché l'arte non è popolare dal 20 primav 54 La chiesa cattolica ed il mondo contemporaneo 19 21 primav 55 La Germania oggi al 22 autun 55 L'energia nucleare ed il mondo di domani 23 prim - est56 L'Inghilterra oggi 24 - 25 au - inv 56 - 57 Le sorti del romanzo 26 primav 57 Che cos'è l'automazione 27 inverno 57 Difendiamo il patrimonio artistico 28 - 29 primav 58 Tramonto del colonialismo 29 1767 30 autunn 58 La battaglia contro la fame 107 31 inverno 58 Stato e Chiesa 118 32 primav 59 Le droghe 83 33 primav 59 Astratto o figurativo ? 150 34 autunn 59 Tasse e tassati 107 35 inverno 59 I giovani e noi 135 36 primav 60 Civiltà e comunicazioni 103 37 giu - 60 Matrimonio e divorzio 105 38 set - 60 Dove va la poesia 122 39 feb - 61 Il Congo 121 40 apr - 61 Promesse e minaccie della psicologia 101 41 lug - 61 Cultura e sottocultura 152 42 set - 61 Cent'anni di vita nazionale 162 43 dic - 61 La paura atomica 121 44 mar - 62 Scuola scientifica o scuola umanistica 105 45 giu - 62 L'uomo nello spazio 143 46 set - 62 Concilio Ecumenico unità delle Chiese cristiane 173 47 dic - 62 Le vie della critica 116 48 - 49 mar - giu 63 L'URSS oggi 243 50 set - 63 I problemi della città 168 51 dic - 63 Il destino della famiglia 154 52 - 53 nov - 64 I Laburisti al potere 231 54 mar - 65 I ceti dirigenti in Italia 147 55 giu - 65 Essere nervosi 112 56 ott - 65 Il cinema in Italia 170 57 apr - 66 Il futuro dell'archeologia 130 58 - 59 dic - 66 Come rifornmare le istituzioni 225 totale pagine 3000 - La rara collezione viene offerta a
