Ray Bradbury
The Martian Chronicles Ray Bradbury New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1950 First edition, first printing, in dust jacket, inscribed and dated by Bradbury Condition: Good plus Jacket Condition: Good plus 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 rem … [Click Below for Full Description]

The stories originally appeared in the American magazines Super Science Stories and Astounding Science Fiction between 1940 and 1950 and were then compiled into a book for stand-alone publication by Gnome Press in 1950, in an initial edition of 5,000 copies. The stories are woven together by a framing narrative in which the fictional Dr. Susan Calvin tells each story to a reporter (who serves as the narrator) in the 21st century. Although the stories can be read separately, they share a theme of the interaction of humans, robots, and morality, and when combined they tell a larger story of Asimov's fictional history of robotics. ---------- About the Author ---------- Isaac Asimov (1920 - 1992) was an American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University, best known for his works of s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Asimov, Isaac
Isaac Asimov (1950) ‘I, Robot‘, US first edition, first printing, published by Gnome Press. Together with a handwritten Asimov signature on a First Day Cover. Condition: a very good plus copy. No previous owners’ names inside, no bookplates, no scribbles. Internally clean, no foxing. Boards have retained their orinal red colour. There is slight shelf wear and a knock on the front board close to the artwork as shown. No lean. The book comes with a facsimile dust jacket which presents the book well. Issac Asimov’s handwritten signature on a First Day Cover. The signature stems from a private collection of a person who sent First Day Covers to many authors and received them back signed. Issac Asimov needs no introduction. The author of the seminal ‘I, Robot’ and ‘Foundation’ series is one of the Big Three of science-fiction who won many sci-fi awards including the Hugo, retro Hugo and so on. What makes ‘I, Robot’ iconic are the Three Laws of Robotics which seem ahead of their time. The 21st century will see huge advancement in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology and Asimov’s ‘I, Robot’ will be even more admired and sought after given the prophetic-like significance of the stories.

FRANKFURTER, Felix.
New York: the Pach Brothers, [c. 1950]. Monochrome photograph by the Pach Brothers studio, signed in black ink below the image on the white mount, further mounted and framed. Image size: 205 x 177 mm. Frame size: 360 x 270 mm. The image and mount in fine condition. A handsome three-quarter length portrait of Frankfurter, seated in judicial robes, facing left, inscribed by him, "For Enie Nash, with every good wish for her successful practice of the public profession of the law, from her devoted friend, Felix Frankfurter", dated 15 January 1950. Ellen "Enie" Virginia Nash (1910-1995) was a pioneering female practitioner of law in Virginia. She was the niece of Frances Nash Watson, the eminent American concert pianist and wife of General Edwin "Pa" Watson, Roosevelt's military aide and secretary. The Watsons lived in a house called Kenwood, designed by Roosevelt's cousin, the architect William A. Delano; Roosevelt himself had a cottage for his own use nearby. Presumably through Roosevelt, Frankfurter became a close friend of the Watsons. He and Frances maintained a regular and affectionate correspondence, and a photograph of Frankfurter inscribed to Frances was on display at Kenwood alongside others, similarly inscribed (Orr & Jordan-Anders). It was no doubt through his association with the Watsons that Frankfurter befriended their niece, Ellen Nash, who graduated from the University of Virginia as the sole woman of her law class and was one of the first women to practice law on Charlottesville Court Square. She was extremely active in local and national politics, and alongsid … [Click Below for Full Description]

Conditions de vente Expédition Paiement À propos de la librairie Visitez notre boutique 17330 Albert CAMUS Le Minotaure ou la halte d'Oran Alger, Charlot, 1950. 1 vol. (165 x 255 mm) de 79 pp., maroquin noir, dos lisse, titre doré en long, date en pied, tranches dorées sur témoin, couv. et dos cons., étui (Reliure signée d'Alix). Édition originale. Un des 325 exemplaires sur vélin de Lana (n° 230). Très bel exemplaire. Premier des huit essais 'solaires' qui constitueront L'Été, Le Minotaure parait en 1950, chez Charlot. Écrit en 1939, sa publication a été ajournée pour de multiples raisons. Après une préoriginale dans l'Arche, revue dirigée par Jean Amrouche, ami de l'auteur et collaborateur comme lui des Éditions Edmond Charlot, le texte est publié en volume deux ans plus tard avec d'infimes variantes. Cette année marque la fin de la célèbre enseigne algéroise : Edmond Charlot, découvreur de Camus dans les années trente, fait faillite malgré les succès de librairie qui caractérisent sa période d'après-guerre. Le Minotaure est l'un des derniers titres de son catalogue, en même temps qu'il marque la fin de la collaboration de Camus avec Charlot qui, cependant, lancera une nouvelle maison d'édition à Alger, Rivages.

New York, Houghton Mifflin Co. 182 (1 ) p., Kl.-8, Hardcover/Pappeinband Einband leicht fleckig und angestaubt, Buchblock sauber und gut, auf dem fliegenden Vorsatz mit Widmung und Vorname der Autorin : For Elizabeth* / with my love / Carson". Elizabeth ist Elizabeth Bowen - Elizabeth Dorothe Cole Bowen (* 7. Juni 1899 in Dubli - + 22. Februar 1973 in London) war eine irische Schriftstellerin. Als Kind zog sie mit ihren Eltern nach London. Nach der Erkrankung ihres Vaters und dem Tod ihrer Mutter wurde sie ab 1907 von ihren Tanten aufgezogen. Ihr erstes Buch, Encounters erschien 1923. Von 1940 bis 1952 lebte sie in Dublin. Bowen entwuchs einer protestantischen, anglo-irischen Familie, die die Sommer auf dem englischen Familiensitz Bowens Court, die Winter in Dublin verbrachte. Der Schwerpunkt ihrer Romane lag auf der kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit der gehobenen britischen Gesellschaft, deren Zerfall sie beschreibt. Der Verfall der gesellschaftlichen Rahmenbedingungen spiegelt sich in ihren Figuren wider, rast- und ziellosen Gestalten, die häufig Sinn- und Beziehungskrisen durchleben. Bowen wird häufig mit Virginia Woolf verglichen, mit der sie auch befreundet war, und, nicht zuletzt wegen der detaillierten psychologischen Beschreibung ihrer Charaktere, mit Jane Austen. Carson McCullers (* 19. Februar 1917 in Columbus/USA - + 29. September 1967 in Nyack/USA eigentlich Lula Carson Smith) war eine US-amerikanische Schriftstellerin.

First edition, first issue, 8vo, pp. 167, [4]; fine copy in original green cloth, gilt-lettered spine and an unclipped dust jacket with small tear and tape stain at the top of the front hinge. This copy inscribed by Eliot: To H. Hope Mirrlees from T. S. Eliot / See p. 142." Hope Mirrlees (1887-1978) was a British translator, poet and novelist. She was a friend of Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein, Bertrand Russell, as well as Eliot. Page 142 concerns monkeys, perhaps a reference to Mirrlees's move to South Africa in 1948, but more likely a reference to her most famous novel, Lud-in-the-Mist.
