        The Naked and the Dead

      New York: Rinehart & Company, 1948. First Edition. Fine/Fine. An absolutely stunning copy of the book. Fine in a Fine dust jacket; a pristine copy and exceptionally uncommon in anything approaching this condition. Mailer's first novel, a masterful saga of the Second World War. Mailer wrote the novel while studying in Paris, and based much of it on his own experiences serving in the Pacific: "The army gave me but one lesson over and over again: when it came to taking care of myself, I had little to offer next to the practical sense of an illiterate sharecropper." The book was not only well reviewed - but extremely popular - and spent over 60 weeks on the New York Times' bestseller list. It would also mark the beginning of an illustrious career for one of America's foremost authors. The Naked and the Dead appears on Modern Library's list of the 100 best English language novels of the 20th century. "…it bears witness to a new and significant talent among American novelists." (Contemporary New York Times review) Raoul Walsh directed the 1958 film of the same name starring Aldo Ray, Cliff Robertson and Raymond Massey. Fine in Fine dust jacket.

This particular copy was issued following World War II; the text at lower right reads:"THE NEW ERA. The demands of war caused New Zealand to expand her industries and develop new ones. Their conversion to peaceful purposes and the continued production of vital foodstuffs will be used by New Zealand for two purposes - to maintain her own high standard of living and social security and also to contribute to the well-being of the world at large."Exquisite pictographs of the natural resources, strong color, textual interest, a striking compass rose: these design features all attest to Gill's graphic genius which had a profound impact on the course of 20th century pictorial mapmaking.

Octavo, original navy cloth, original dust jacket. $1500.First edition of the renowned economistÂ’s response to HayekÂ’s Road to Serfdom (1944), inscribed “To Caryl Haskins, With the authorÂ’s best regards, John M. Clark,” in scarce dust jacket.“One of the great economists of this centuryÂ…. Clark was an economistÂ’s economist” (New York Times). In Alternative to Serfdom, published in the wake of WWII, Clark “deals pragmatically with the problems of freedom and responsibility in American economic policy. His alternative to serfdom is the balance of competing groups and institutions” (Foreign Affairs). This important work, “based on a 1947 series of lectures at the University of Michigan, was meant as a response to HayekÂ’s Road to Serfdom (1944), particularly in presenting a more positive role for the state.” ClarkÂ’s ability “to extend his theoretical insights and empirical studies into the realm of practical policy remains a model for the development of the discipline and its practitioners” (ANB). “First Edition” stated on copyright page. Recipient Caryl Haskins is very likely the preeminent biophysicist and president of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, who also founded Haskins Laboratories and was a trustee emeritus of the National Geographic Society.Book fine; light soiling, slight edge-wear to seams minimally affecting a word on spine of extremely good dust jacket.

      New York, National Committee For Labor Israel.. 1948-1950. Paperback. First edition. Original illustrated blue and white paper wrappers with black-and-white photographs. 4to. About 15 pages each; 28 cm. Statehood-era run of this important Zionist photographic periodical, including the issue from the month when Statehood was declared (May 1948), filled with hundreds of black-and-white photographs, tables, maps, and articles. Covers topics such as “Report on Latin America, ” “Youth that Saved a Nation, ” and “Way of the Mediator. ” The Histadrut “was founded in December 1929 in Haifa to look out for the interests of Jewish workers...The Histadrut became one of the most powerful institutions in the state of Israel, a mainstay of the Labour Zionist movement and, aside from being a trade union, its state-building role made it the owner of a number of businesses and factories and, for a time, the largest employer in the country. Until Israel began moving away from a socialist economy, the Histadrut, along with the government, owned most of the economy” (Wikipedia 2017) . “Newspaper headlines report the sensational side of events in Palestine, but rarely the important things that happen daily. The Jewish State is being built by men and women with a single mind and single purpose, men and women of the Histadrut who stick to their task in fields and factories, who reluctantly take the gun in hand to ward off the enemy. HISTADRUT FOTO-NEWS will bring to American Jewry the story of Palestine in its proper perspective. Its heroes will be workers.

        Loved One

      1948. First Edition . Signed. WAUGH, Evelyn. The Loved One. An Anglo-American Tragedy. (London): Chapman & Hall, [1948]. Octavo, original green cloth, top edge gilt, uncut, original printed glassine. $2000.Signed limited large-paper first book edition, number 173 of only 250 copies signed by Evelyn Waugh and illustrator Stuart Boyle, in extremely rare printed glassine dust jacket.“In 1947 Waugh visited Hollywood to discuss the proposed film of Brideshead Revisited. No film was ever made because he refused to alter the story as the producers wished, largely that they might satisfy the standards set by the very powerful Catholic Legion of Decency. But the visit was not barren. With time on his hands he became fascinated with Californian burial practices, and the result was The Loved One (1948) which, for all its macabre setting, was a highly successful light novel based on Forest Lawn” (DNB). Waugh wrote in his diary: “I found a deep mine of literary gold in the cemetery of Forest Lawn and the work of the morticians and intend to get to work immediately on a novelette staged there.” He did extensive research for the novel, which included touring Forest Lawn and reading and annotating Embalming Techniques, a book by Forest Lawn founder, Dr. Hubert Eaton. The Loved One was critically acclaimed in Great Britain, as well as in the States, though The New Yorker refused to publish it when approached, claiming the themes had already been handled by other authors including Sinclair Lewis and Nathaniel West. The Loved One was adapted for the screen in 1965 by British filmmaker Tony Richardson and the screenplay was written by American satirical novelist Terry Southern and British author Christopher Isherwood. This is the first book edition; the work was first published in its entirety by Cyril Connolly in the February 1948 issue of the periodical Horizon. Book very nearly fine, rare dust jacket exceptional and fine. A beautiful signed copy.

        The Second World War, full set of six U S first editions

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1948. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a superb full, six-volume, jacketed set of first editions, quite scarce thus. The Second World War is Churchill's history of the epic 20th Century struggle that was so indelibly stamped by his leadership. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed a statesman with both singular ability to make history, and singular ability to write it. As with so much of what Churchill wrote, The Second World War is not "history" in the strictly academic, objectivist sense, but rather Churchill's perspective on history. In his March 1948 introduction to the first volume, Churchill himself made the disclaimer, "I do not describe it as history... it is a contribution to history..." Nonetheless the compelling fact remains, as stated by Churchill himself, "I am perhaps the only man who has passed through both the two supreme cataclysms of recorded history in high Cabinet office... I was for more than five years in this second struggle with Germany the Head of His Majesty's government. I write, therefore, from a different standpoint and with more authority than was possible in my earlier books." Certainly The Second World War may be regarded as an intensely personal and inherently biased history. Nonetheless, Churchill's work remains seminal, iconic, and a vital part of the historical record. The six-volume epic has been called "indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today." This U.S. first edition is not only considerably scarcer today than its British counterpart, but is also the true first edition. The first U.S. volume, The Gathering Storm, was published in June 1948, while the British first edition was not published until October 1948. The sixth and final U.S. first edition volume, Triumph and Tragedy, was published during Churchill's second and final Premiership in November 1953. A Book-of-the-Month Club (BOMC) edition was published virtually simultaneously with the U.S. first edition and is quite similar in appearance (often causing confusion for disappointed collectors who think they are buying first editions). Note these are not the common BOMC look-alikes, but correct first trade editions in all respects: the dust jackets are unclipped and bear the correct, first printing $6.00 price. All top edges are stained dark yellow-orange. Title and copyright pages bear correct first printing indications. All volumes bear the distinctive red and yellow head and foot bands. There are no BOMC indentations on the rear covers. First edition sets typically suffer considerable sunning, wear, and soiling, with the dust jacket spines particularly prone to fading. This set is a noteworthy exception, featuring truly fine volumes in extraordinarily bright, near fine dust jackets. The jackets are complete, with only minor wear to extremities, the most notable being at the Volume I & II spine heads. Shelf presentation is exceptional, the jackets improbably bright with perfect unfaded color. Of particular note and interest, five of the jackets – those for Volumes II–VI – each bear an intriguing month-day-year inked date stamp on the lower rear flap. One of the date stamps is the day of publication, while the other four vary from 4 to 14 days prior to publication. All six dust jackets are protected beneath removable, archival quality clear covers. The volumes are likewise exceptional, the bindings square, clean, bright, and tight with unfaded color, and vivid gilt. We note only one small corner bump in the set. The books could be unread. The contents are uniformly clean with no spotting. Previous ownership marks are modest – a small Chicago bookseller sticker to the Volume V lower rear pastedown and identical decorative bookplates affixed to the Volume II and Volume III front pastedowns. Please note that this large set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A240.1(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A123(aa), Langworth p.258.

With the Second World War, Churchill ""pulled himself back from humiliating defeat in 1945, using all his skills as a writer and politician to make his fortune, secure his reputation, and win a second term in Downing Street"" (Reynolds, xxiii). ""Winston himself affirmed that 'this is not history: this is my case"" (Holmes, 285). Churchill was re-elected to the post of Prime Minister in 1951. ""The Second World War is a great work of literature, combining narrative, historical imagination and moral precept in a form that bears comparison with that of the original master chronicler, Thucydides. It was wholly appropriate that in 1953 Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature"" (Keegan, 175). Although preceded by the American editions, the English editions are generally preferred for their profusion of diagrams, maps, and facsimile documents. Cohen A240.4. Woods A123b. Langworth, 254. A fine set, handsomely bound.
