        Men Against the Stars

      New York: Gnome Press, 1950. New York: Gnome Press, 1950 New York: Gnome Press, 1950. First Edition. Introduction by Willy Ley. Edited by Martin Greenberg, this copy signed, inscribed and presented by him to Arthur C. Clarke. Octavo, 351 pp. Purple cloth-backed gray cloth boards, with silver spine titling and blindstamped launching-spaceship and star motif on purple margin. Pictorial dustjacket by sci-fi illustration luminary Edd Cartier. A near fine book, with only minor page edge soiling and a trace of partial spine fade, in a Very Good + jacket, showing light perimeter wear. Singular copy, inscribed and presented to Arthur C. Clarke by Greenberg, with provenance of unimpeachable order accompanying the book. An increasingly classic collection of short stories by some of the now-timeless sci-fi names. Willy Ley: "Here is a different type of anthology. This book, taken in its entirety, tells a story: the conquest of space. Moving from man's first attempt to reach the moon to the exploration of the ends of the universe, these stories are among the finest ever published." - Willy Ley. Hailed by critics at the time of its publication as a quantum leap forward in both quality and concept for science fiction anthologies, Martin Greenberg's thematically edited Men Against the Stars is a collection of twelve lengthy stories whose authors read like a Who's Who of Golden Age sci-fi, including Isaac Asimov, Murray Leinster, A.E. Van Vogt, L. Ron Hubbard [Hubbard's "When Shadows Fall" is here], and E.M. Hull. Not a slap-dash aggregation to get to the printer quickly, Greenberg's collection was a thoroughly contemplated and planned project, a selection of the very finest available stories on theme, ranging back as far as 1939. Nicely complimented by a Cartier's funky pure genre period stylization jacket. A sci-fi presentation copy of the highest sort, that of a veteran and astute editor to a future superstar. Arthur C. Clarke's reputation at the time was already becoming established, and Greenberg shows the admiration in his skilled critical eye for Clarke's sci-fi talents in his presentation remark. As always, please feel free to ask questions or request additional scans. L53n

Bound with the adverts. Illustrated throughout with numerous photographs, paintings, drawings, many of which are coloured. Containig issues CVIII (parts I and II), CIX (parts I and II), and CX (parts I and II). Including articles on hunting, country houses, historical events, and much more. The magazine covers the pleasures and joys of rural life, as well as the concerns of rural people. It is primarily concerned with rural communities and their environments as well as the concerns of country dwellers and landowners and has a diverse readership which, although mainly UK based is also international. Much of its success has historically been built on its coverage of country houses, architecture and gardening. Country Life was launched in 1897, incorporating Racing Illustrated. At this time it was owned by Edward Hudson, the owner of Lindisfarne Castle and various Lutyens-designed houses including The Deanery in Sonning. At that time golf and racing served as its main content, as well as the property coverage, initially of manorial estates, that has become its mainstay. Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the late Queen Mother, used to appear frequently on its front cover. The frontispiece, which usually features a young woman from a landed British family, is very well known and is called popularly Girls in Pearls, showing upper class British rural life in its most ideal light. Condition: In a green cloth binding. Externally, generally smart, though with some marks and light bumping to the spines . Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        Importante carteggio composto da tre lettere autografe firmate e un opuscolo dattiloscritto del docente di Teologia Dogmatica in seminario e Vicario diocesano che promosse una piccola comunità monastica sostenitrice di una riforma della chiesa in senso spiritualistico, ponendosi cosà in dissidio con le gerarchie ecclesiastiche. Sospeso dai principali incarichi (1950), Don Angelo, fu ridotto allo stato laicale nel 1949. Continuò la sua predicazione attraverso numerosi scritti e conferenze. Tutte le missive sono dirette a Rino Ferrari e risalgono al 1950. Interessante testimonianza dell'attività dell'ecclesiastico che, negli anni successivi alla scomunica, si adoperò nella pubblicazione di articoli e opuscoli a sostegno dell'Opera di Dio. Seguono alcuni dei brani più significativi. Dall'opuscolo datato Reggio Emilia 14 / 8 / 50: non sono i sontuosi artistici templi, non sono gli sfarzosi riti esteriori, ma è la comprensione, la bontà, la misericordia, la benevolenza, l'amore che scuotono, orientano, incoraggiano, attraggono e spingono ad intraprendere la via del bene chi l'ha da lungo smarrita Potei forse non esprimervi tutta la compiacenza del nostro Dio per tutta l'industria, il sacrificio, il tormento che vi ponete non tanto per la diffusione degli Opuscoli quanto per la diffusione delle Verità che vi sono annunciate e sempre più facilmente vi saranno annunciate. è preziosa la collaborazione che voi cosà spontaneamente date e non solo date a me, a noi, ma all'Opera di Dio per tutte le creature di Dio? (dalla lettera dat. Reggio Emilia 26 / 4 / 50).

        Boletus Flavus L. Collected L'Islet County, Que. 1950. [Original watercolor with convolute of related materials]

      , 1950. 1950. Original watercolor, 17 x 22 cm. Labeled, signed and dated by the artist in pencil. On watercolor paper which had been mounted on a thicker card stock, now de-laminated, but in remarkably fine condition. Henry A.C. Jackson (1877-1960) was one of Canada's outstanding amateur naturalists. He was the elder brother of landscape painter A.Y. Jackson, and while A.Y. achieved great fame through his art, Henry chose to quietly document his mycological journeys in Quebec through copious note taking and watercolor paintings of the collected specimens. After his death in 1960, much of his work was donated to the National Gallery of Canada. In 1979 The National Gallery mounted an exhibition of the watercolors, and produced the catalogue, Mr. Jackson's Mushrooms which reproduces forty-odd images, and accompanies them with excerpts from his field notes. Very few of Jackson's mushroom watercolors have reached the market, with only a few having been given to friends and neighbors over the years. A small convolute of related materials accompanies the watercolor, including: The Fungus Records of Mr. H.A.C. Jackson From L'Islet Co., Quebec 1941-1960. (offprint from The Canadian Field Naturalist, vol. 7, no. 4 (1963); Notes on the Higher Fungi Collected in Lasalle, Que., 1930-1940 offprint from C.F.N., vol. 62, no. 5. (1948); 18 pages of original manuscript and typescript of Jackson's Field notes from 1932 and 33; three original photographs, 6 x 9cm each. Two of the photos depict the artist, at a youthful age, in the field. The third depicts an unidentified fungus on a log.

        The Traveller's Tree: A Journey Through the Caribbean Islands

      London: John Murray, 1950.. London: John Murray, 1950. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, green cloth. Signed by Leigh Fermor on the title page. Fine in a very good dust jacket with a few small closed tears. A very sharp copy. In the late 1940s Patrick Leigh Fermor, now widely regarded as one of the twentieth century's greatest travel writers, set out to explore the then relatively little-visited islands of the Caribbean. Rather than a comprehensive political or historical study of the region, The Traveller's Tree, Leigh Fermor's first book, gives us his own vivid, idiosyncratic impressions of Guadeloupe, Martinique, Dominica, Barbados, Trinidad, and Haiti, among other islands. Here we watch Leigh Fermor walk the dusty roads of the countryside and the broad avenues of former colonial capitals, equally at home among the peasant and the elite, the laborer and the artist. He listens to steel drum bands, delights in the Congo dancing that closes out Havana's Carnival, and observes vodou and Rastafarian rites, all with the generous curiosity and easy erudition that readers will recognize from his subsequent classic accounts A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water" (New York Review Books).

The Vatican projects took most of his time, although he painted several portraits, including those of his two main patrons, the popes Julius II and his successor Leo X, the former considered one of his finest. He also designed and painted the Loggia at the Vatican, a long thin gallery then open to a courtyard on one side, decorated with Roman-style grottesche.

        L'Unite D'Habitation de Marseille.

      Le Point, Souillac 1950 - First edition. Small quarto, original wrappers with the dust jacket. Inscribed by Le Corbusier and dated in December 1950. In very good condition with some light rubbing. The subject of this book by Le Corbusier is among his most well-known works, L'Unite D'Habitation de Marseille, which inspired the Brutalist architectural style and philosophy. An important work of twentieth century architecture, exceptionally rare signed and inscribed by Le Corbusier. The Unité d'Habitation (Housing Unit) is the name of a modernist residential housing design principle developed by Le Corbusier. The concept formed the basis of several housing developments designed by him throughout Europe with this name.The first and certainly most famous of these buildings is located in Marseille, France, and was built in the late 1940's.

        Inscribed photograph

      , [c.1950]. [c.1950]. Black and white photograph (252 × 204 mm). Presented in handmade black and gold leaf frame. Small crease to bottom left corner and another 2/3 of the way up left edge, very small mark at the margin of bottom right corner. Otherwise in excellent condition. A smouldering early publicity photo of Marlon Brando, inscribed to his longtime friend Sam Gilman (1915-85), "To the lad with a prick like an ice-cream cone - Best, Sloot". Gilman, a friend of Marlon's since their NY days, appeared in several films (often Westerns, such as The Missouri Breaks) together beginning with The Wild One in 1953. Gilman was part of the actor's triumvirate of friends, including actor and comedian Wally Cox and Brando himself, who loved fooling around together, though Gilman often played critic to Brando and Cox's fool. Gilman's wife remembered how Brando also attempted to invade their relationship, often asking embarrassing questions about their sex life. The present inscription, to a long-standing friend and fellow actor, thus evokes Brando in this role, a mischievous and mercurial joker. One of Brando's numerous children by unidentified women, Michael (1967-), was in fact adopted by Gilman. As a somewhat morbid though nonetheless touching footnote, when Brando died in 2004, the ashes of Brando, Gilman and Cox were all scattered together over Death Valley, Brando having kept his predeceasing friends' remains in his possession until that day.

        [Faulkner, William] To the Voters of Oxford

      Oxford, Miss.: , 1950 Oxford, Miss., 1950. First edition. An original copy of Faulkner's famous "Beer Broadside" containing four arguments for legalizing the sale of beer in Oxford, Mississippi. This was Faulkner's direct challenge to an earlier broadside distributed by a group of clergy calling for the sale of beer to remain illegal. Contains the blemish to "because" in point 1. According to Petersen, there were likely two impressions of the broadside, the first without the blemish to "because" and the second with the blemish. Others have suggested a single impression, with the blemish merely due to type batter that might have occurred during the print run. Very small stain to lower left corner, creases from mailing, else a near fine copy of a scarce Faulkner item.

        The Chronicles of Narnia Set: The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, The Horse and His Boy, The Magician's Nephew, The Last Battle

      London: Geofrey Bles, 1950-1956.. London: Geofrey Bles, 1950-1956. First British editions of each of the seven volumes in the author's acclaimed Narnia Series. Each volume is finely bound in three quarters green morocco. Marbled endpapers. Housed in a custom slipcase. Illustrations by Pauline Baynes. Octavo, seven volumes. An attractive set. The Chronicles of Narnia is "…unforgettable not only for the excitement and suspense of the adventures but also for the strong emotions they describe so well… [and they are] further enriched by Lewis' skillful use of language" (Silvey, 406). "Each book has something new and different to offer and there is no weakening of either inspiration or interest" (Eyre, 132). It is interesting that Lewis' inspiration came from a dream: "At first I had very little idea how the story would go. But then suddenly Aslan came bounding into it. I think I had been having a good many dreams of lions about that time…[O]nce he was there, he pulled the whole story together, and soon he pulled the six other Narnian stories in after him (On Stories: And Other Essays on Literature, 1980). Lewis was "concerned to do for children what he had done for an adult readership in his science fiction… to re-imagine the…story in an exciting narrative context… [The Narnia books are] intoxicating to all but the most relentlessly unimaginative of readers, and must be judged the most sustained achievement in fantasy for children by a 20th-century author" (Carpenter & Pritchard, 370).
