First edition, first printing, preceding the UK edition by a year. A collection of 12 essays, most having already appeared in various journals.

      [Los Angeles]: Paramount Pictures, Inc., 25 February - 8 November 1948.. [Los Angeles]: Paramount Pictures, Inc., 25 February - 8 November 1948.. [3],130 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only of white, light blue and dark blue stock. Punched and bradbound. A few minor corner creases, a couple of erasures and a small ink script number on cover leaf, but a very good copy. A "Final White Script" of Hume and Maibaum's adaptation to the screen of Fitzgerald's novel by way of Owen Davis's dramatization. Subsequent dated revises on two shades of blue paper mark further revisions, including a November rewrite of seven of the last eight pages. This version is the first sound, and the first surviving rendering of THE GREAT GATSBY to the screen, as the 1926 silent Famous Players production is a lost film. Elliott Nugent directed this production, and it starred Alan Ladd as Jay Gatsby, Betty Field and Barry Sullivan as Daisy and Tom Buchanan, MacDonald Carey as Nick Carraway, Ruth Hussey as Jordan Baker, Shelly Winters as Myrtle Wilson, et al. This adaptation, and particularly Alan Ladd's performance, have been praised for the dominance of mood and noirish elements over reliance on a manufactured reconstruction of '20s glitter in the portrayal of Gatsby. The release time of the finished film was 92 minutes, and this script, at 130 pages, suggests that there were likely significant cuts and differences between this draft and the final film, which saw release in July of 1949. An uncommon and important screenplay. BRUCCOLI 7.8.

        Road Through the Wall, The

      New York: Farrar, Straus, 1948. New York: Farrar, Straus, 1948. First Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine+/Fine-. First Edition of the author's first book. Small 8vo: [8],271,[1]pp. Publisher's coarsely woven tangerine cloth, spine lettered in white, pictorial dust jacket priced $2.75. Near Fine or better (lightly shelf-worn; pages toned, as usual; edges spotted) in a bright, about Fine jacket (flap edges slightly dust-soiled and browned). This, Jackson's neglected first novel, "deserves much more interest than it has hitherto received, not least because it anticipated the most prominent themes and settings of the wave of suburban-related fiction that appeared during the post-war period by several years. Jackson evoked the self-absorption and casual cruelty of the middle-class suburbs in a manner that would seldom be bettered, particularly because her focus is mostly upon the children of the neighbourhood, who in their petty rivalries, snobbishness and strict hierarchy, are mirror images of their self-satisfied parents."

        Crusade in Europe (Special Limited Edition) With numerous maps and illustrations throughout.

      Doubleday & Company, Garden City, New York 1948 - Handsomely bound in heavy woven oatmeal buckram cloth and stamped brightly in gilt on the spine. With a few stray scuff marks in the black background. With bevelled edges; very clean and tight throughout. Top edges gilt; on heavy deckle-edged paper. This is the special limited edition: "This edition is limited to 1,426 copies, of which 1,401 are for sale. This is number 901.The "Facsimile of the D-Day Order of the Day" is not present. With spreading map endpapers: "Festung Europa, June 6, 1944" (front); and "The Mediterranean Under Axis Domination" (rear). A very handsome copy of the limited edition, unsigned by Eisenhower. "Five-star General Dwight D. Eisenhower was arguably the single most important military figure of World War II. For many historians, his memoirs of this eventful period of U.S. history have become the single most important record of the war. Crusade in Europe tells the complete story of the war as Eisenhower planned and lived it. Through his eyes, the enormous scope and drama of the war—strategy, battles, moments of fateful decision—become fully illuminated in all their fateful glory. Yet this is also a warm and richly human account. Ike recalls the long months of waiting, planning, and working toward victory in Europe. His personal record of the tense first hours after he had issued the order to attack—and there was no turning back—leaves no doubt of Eisenhower's travail and reveals this great man in ways that no biographer has ever surpassed."

        Relativistic Cut-Off for Quantum Electrodynamics, [in] The Physical Review. Volume 74, No. 10.

      Lancaster, PA and New York: for the American Physical Society by the American Institute of Physics, November 15, 1948 - Octavo. Original green wrappers printed in black. Spine very slightly faded, minor crease to lower corner of upper wrapper. A superb, fresh copy of this delicate publication. First edition of Feynman's very first paper on quantum electrodynamics, in which he proposed a mechanism (the 'cut-off') for removing the divergences which had plagued the theory since its development by Dirac. This paper pre-dates his work on Feynman diagrams, which was not published until the following year. This issue also contains the competing paper by Julian Schwinger, "Quantum electrodynamics I. A. covariant formulation", making this the key issue of Physical Review with regard to quantum electrodynamics. A superb copy of one of the most important of Feynman's publications and a key work in post-war physics. [Attributes: First Edition]

This first edition in book form was published by a Santiago bookstore, a courageous effort at a time when Neruda was in hiding from the police in a friend's basement.
