Very good. Unique author's collotype book with traces of editing, made by collotype (1950-ies): Author: Igor Gouzenko Title: «The Fall of a Titan» Language: Russian Weight: 3,5 kg «The Fall of a Titan» was translated into dozens of languages and even nominated for a Nobel prize. However, this book was never published in Russian. We offer you a author's collotype book with traces of editing (1950-ies). Please note: 1. This handwriting is by the hand of Igor Gouzenko himself. 2. The book is manufactured using the COLLOTYPE PRINTING. It is NOT directly from his pen. It is a collotype printing of what he submitted to the publisher. Part of the book is printed in black. Part of the book is printed in blue. 3. The collotype copy contains many handwriting notes on the text by the hand of Igor Gouzenko himself. So Igor Guzenko himself a lot edited this copy. Igor Sergeyevich Gouzenko was a cipher clerk for the Soviet Embassy to Canada in Ottawa, Ontario. He defected on September 5, 1945, with 109 documents on Soviet espionage activities in the West. This forced Prime Minister Mackenzie King to call a Royal Commission to investigate espionage in Canada. The New York Times described Gouzenko's actions as having «awakened the people of North America to the magnitude and the danger of Soviet espionage». Igor Gouzenko - the man who started the Cold War, the cryptographer, who gave to Canada 109 secret documents: codes and data of Soviet agents. These materials led to the arrest and conviction of at least ten agents. Soviet historians take for the beginning of the cold war Winston Church … [Click Below for Full Description]

Doubleday & Company, Inc., New York. This inscribed and jacketed first edition of Bradbury’s first major work and enduring classic, The Martian Chronicles, is inked in blue in four lines on the title page: "BILL! | BEST FROM | RAY BRADBURY | OCT. 1966". First edition is so stated on the copyright page. Condition is good plus in a good plus dust jacket. The first edition’s pale green cloth binding proved notoriously prone to toning and discoloration. This copy is square and tight with sharp corners and only trivial wrinkling to spine ends, but nonetheless modestly toned to the spine and also showing some mild staining to the boards, primarily at the midpoint of the spine and the rear cover. The contents are clean with no previous ownership marks apart from the author’s signature. Trivial spotting appears confined to a few spots on the fore and bottom edges and at the lower rear endpaper verso and pastedown. The dust jacket is complete, with no appreciable loss and retaining the original "$2.50" price on the upper front flap. The spine is modestly toned and we note mild wear to extremities, hinges, and flap folds. The chief detraction is spotting and staining to the jacket verso, which permeated the jacket and is visible primarily on the white rear panel and flaps. Fortunately, the hues and design of the jacket’s spine and front face make the staining unobtrusive. The dust jacket is now protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover.

[Birn Brothers] Book #832 (London) [nd, circa 1940?s-1950's]. MEDIUM - WATERCOLOUR and GOUACHE on illustration board. ARTIST - E.V.A. (Eleanor Vera ABBOTT). DATE - circa 1940's?-1950's. The front and back cover paintings measure roughly 8" x 10" while each of the 7 interior paintings measures 7" x 8" on the same size 8" x 10" illustration board. This set of 9 LOVELY original watercolour and gouache paintings were used to illustrate the Children's book "TEA-TIME" published by the Birn Brothers circa 1940's?-1950's consisting of the front cover of the book, the back cover (see last scan) along with 7 of the 8 interior color plates.

Ernest Hemingway
London: Jonathan Cape, 1950. The first chapter opens on the last day in the life of protagonist, Colonel Richard Cantwell, who is duck hunting in Trieste. Much of the novel is a protracted flashback, with Cantwell thinking about a young Venetian woman, Renata, and about his life as a soldier during the war. In Italy, Hemingway had met a young woman, Adriana Ivancich, with whom he was infatuated and he used as the model for the female character in the novel. A central theme in the novel is death and how one faces death. Ernest Hemingway (1899 - 1961) was an American author and journalist. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. CONDITION In a green cloth binding with an embossed cover design. Externally smart. Some light shelfwear to the boards, with light discolouration to the extremities and some sunning to spine. Dustwrapper generally sound with some wear and browning to the extremities and some loss to spine. Internally firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean throughout.

Patricia Highsmith
USA: Harper Bros, 1950. Books has light corner bumps and minimal scuffing. Interior is clean and bright without foxing or previous owner additions. The DJ is a facsimile without issues. A beauty of an author's first book! For consideration, offered now is a very rare first printing of Patricia Highsmith's debut novel, "Strangers On A Train," which she inscribed on the ffep. This excellent copy is bright, clean, unmarked and free of foxing, loose or torn pages. Very few of the first printings remain in the marketplace simply because the book was a debut novel by an unknown writer. Ironically, the success of the work enabled the author to give up the low-pay magazine market and to write bestsellers full time. This copy comes from a smoke-free environment and ships to you postpaid well padded and tucked in a sturdy carton. A highly-desirable collectible. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Doubleday & Co. Book boards are straight, unmarked, undamaged, no bumps or scuffs. Dust jacket unclipped ($3.00) with only minimal rubbing, chipping. (See scans). Book does have a faint musty smell. For your consideration, offered here is a very rare true first printing of Kyle Crichton's 1950 bio on the zany Marx Brothers, who signed above their line drawing image on the main title page. Although this beautiful copy is nearly 70 years old, it is close to mint-like in its well-saved condition. It is from a collection belonging to a film buff and has been stored in a closed bookcase in a smoke and pet-free enviroment for decades. It is doubtful another copy in equal condition will ever hit the market. Examine the scans to confirm our enthusiasm. Shipment by Priority Mail is gratis. Marx Brothers fan or not, don't let this gem slip by.

Storyline of the 1953 Final Film: One night, young David McLean sees a spaceship crash into a nearby sandpit. His father goes to investigate, but comes back changed. Where once he was cheerful and affectionate, he's now sullen and snarlingly rude. Others fall into the sandpit and begin acting like him: cold, ill-tempered and conspiratorial. David knows that aliens are taking over the bodies of humans, but he'll soon discover there have been far more of these terrible thefts than he could have imagined. The young doom-monger finds some serious help in a lady doctor and a brilliant astronomer. Soon they meet the aliens: green creatures with insect-like eyes. These beings prove to be slaves to their leader: a large, silent head with ceaselessly shifting eyes and two tentacles on either side, each of which branches off into three smaller tentacles. It's up to the redoubtable earth trio to stop its evil plans. POSTER IS NOT INCLUDED, IT IS JUST BEING USED AS A VISUAL REFERENCE.

Nabokov, Vladimir
First printing of this edition, and first printing in paperback of Nabokov's first novel, originally titled "Kamera Obscura." INSCRIBED by Nabokov for publisher Kurt Enoch: "Vladimir Nabokov / IV.1950." From the Kurt Enoch collection, with a letter of provenance included. Apart from the rarity of the signature, the book was inscribed Nabokov a full five years before "Lolita" was published by the Olympia Press in Paris, propelling him to international fame. Originally published 23 years prior to his controversial masterpiece "Lolita," "Laughter in the Dark" is something of a study for that book, about a middle-aged man's sexual fixation on a much younger woman, and how the ways they use each other lead to their downfalls. Kurt Enoch was the founder of Signet Books and a publisher whose desire was to bring great literature and genre fiction out of the libraries and into the hands of readers. With a letter of provenance included. A tremendous association. Near Fine in wrappers. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Alle Holzschnitte gerahmt. Sehr guter Zustand mit nur einigen kleineren Gebrauchsspuren an den Rahmen. Franz Wilhelm Peter Maria Haacken (* 7. Januar 1911 in Aachen; † 1. Januar 1979 in Uitwellingerga/Niederlande) war ein deutscher Grafiker, Buchgestalter und Trickfilmer. Haacken wächst in bürgerlichen Verhältnissen in Aachen auf. Sein Vater ist Prokurist, die Mutter Hausfrau. Früh entdeckt er das Zeichnen für sich. Am Realgymnasium fördert der Maler Engelbert Mainzer sein Talent und ermutigt ihn 1931 zu einem Studium an der Kunstgewerbeschule Aachen. Haacken studiert hier bis 1933 beim Architekten Hans Schwippert und ist Werkstattschüler des führenden Kirchenglaskünstlers Anton Wendling. Bekannte Kommilitonen dieser Ära sind die Maler Bert Heller, Karl Fred Dahmen und Karl Otto Götz. Haacken schlägt eine Karriere als Gebrauchsgrafiker ein, lebt zeitweilig auf dem Inselhof, einer landwirtschaftlichen und kunstgewerblichen Werkgemeinschaft in Zempin auf der Insel Usedom. 1936 zieht er nach Berlin. Hier kommt er durch Aufträge für Werbeateliers und die Reichsanstalt für Bild und Film in Wissenschaft und Unterricht (RWU) erstmals mit dem Trickfilm in Berührung. 1940 wird er zum Kriegsdienst herangezogen.

The Two Towers is a 1st impression published 1954. I believe one of 2250 printed for the UK. The Return of the King is a 1st impression published 1955. Original publisher's red cloth, top-stained red, original white, red, black and gold dust jackets with central images; some toning or foxing to endpapers and fore-edges, spine panels of jackets toned, some light spotting. Maps are bound in to the rear in Near Fine condition, no tares or extra folds. All three books are in their correct 1st impression dustjackets which are in overall good condition with only a couple of very small tares as shown. With The Return Of The King being in very good condition and overall consistent aesthetic to the spines/set. Since these have remained in the family since 1954, they have no additional restoration or repairs which can often decrease the value than sold with their original flaws.
