RUNCIMAN, Steven.
Cambridge: at the University Press, 1951-52-54. 3 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, spines lettered in gilt. With the dust jackets. Spot of fading to head of spine of volume I, pale foxing to top edges; a bright, near-fine set, in the very faintly soiled, not price-clipped jackets with lightly browned spines, minor creasing to edges, small chip to head of spine of volume I. Frontispieces, 30 plates, and 16 maps, some folding. First editions, first impressions. This important history of the Crusades is a "major achievement of narrative history infused by passion and at times romanticism, as a result of which he has been compared to Macaulay. Inherent in the work is regret at the deplorable failure of the crusading West to understand Byzantium and the East. Runciman's style of writing, and perhaps also his detachment from the narrow confines of academic life, gave him access to a wide cultivated readership, much of which had hitherto been quite unfamiliar with Byzantium" (ODNB). The work is becoming increasingly difficult to find as a set of first impressions in collectable condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

OUR COLLECTION OF WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS WAS PURCHASED FROM THE HOME IN VENTNOR THE CITY NEXT TO OUR GREAT ATLANTIC CITY. Roland De Hellebranth A Doctor who performed surgeries at home and sisters Bertha de Hellebranth and Elena were born into a cultured upper-class family in Budapest, Bertha in 1899, Elena in 1897. Their father was a lawyer and their mother a student of Franz Liszt's last living pupil. They studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Budapest, at the Académie Julian and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, and painted portraits of European nobility. As Patricia Fazekas points out, Growing up in a family of privilege, they seemed to have unusual access to many illustrious people. So we should not be surprised to find among their subjects members of high society, such as Count Andrássy Gyula, the Russian-born Princess Baby Galitzine, and Admiral Horthy Miklós, the Regent. Later on, their subjects included American heiress Gladys Vanderbilt (Countess László Széchenyi), President Theodore Roosevelt's granddaughter Paulina Longworth and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. … [Click Below for Full Description]

(BUCCANEERS CRICKET CLUB) (Cricket) Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord TEDDER
1951. Single sheet, 8vo., a near fine copy. Signed simply 'Tedder' in the writer's usual manner, the letter is written to Geoffrey Moore, founder of the Buccaneers Cricket Club, and demonstrates the airman's keen and continuing interest in the sport. Tedder was President of Surrey County Cricket Club from 1953 to 1958. The letter confirms Tedder's intention to attend the Buccaneers' annual dinner (held at Lords). Marshal of the RAF Arthur William Tedder, 1st Baron Tedder (1890-1967) was one of Britain's most distinguished air commanders. Educated at Whitgift School and Magdalene College, Cambridge, he transferred from the Dorsetshire Regiment to the Royal Flying Corps in 1916, serving in France from 1915- to 1917 and in Egypt from 1918 to 1919. He was then commissioned in to the (new) Royal Air Force where was appointed Director of Training from 1934 to 1936, after which he became Commander RAF Far Eastern Forces. During WWII he was head of RAF Middle East Command, controlling Allied air operations in the Mediterranean and North Africa, including the evacuation of Crete and the defeat of Rommel; his air power was a vital component of Montgomery's victory at El Alamein. Having been promoted to Air Marshal, Tedder then took part in the early planning for D-Day, and was subsequently appointed Deputy Supreme Commander Allied Forces Europe (the most senior such British position) immediately beneath General Eisenhower, on whose behalf he signed at the German Surrender in 1945. In 1947 he delivered the Lees Knowles lecture, afterwards published as 'Air Power in War'. Following his … [Click Below for Full Description]

Faber, 1951. 8vo., First Edition, with 16 plates on 8, 6 illustrations and plans (5 full-page) and full-page map in the text, some light offsetting from fold-ins to free endpapers; salmon cloth, backstrip lettered in blue, a near fine copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter lightly chafed at head and tail of backstrip, and just a trifle dust-soiled on (predominantly white) rear panel. Near fine copy of the original account of arguably the greatest POW story of WWII - the escape of no fewer than seventy-six Allied POW's from Stalag Luft III at Sagan in March 1944. Known ever since as the 'Great Escape', it was a gallant endeavour with a sordid ending, and has inspired a minor industry of research and publication, including John Sturges' immensely successful (though heavily fictionalised) feature film of 1963 starring Steve McQueen and Richard Attenborough.

CAVAFY, C. P.
London: The Hogarth Press, 1951. London: The Hogarth Press,, 1951. Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in grey morocco, titles and centre tool to spine gilt, raised bands, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, floral endpapers, gilt edges. A fine copy. First edition, first impression, of the first translations of Cavafy's collected poems into English, translated by John Mavrogordato (1882-1970, Oxford professor of Byzantine and Modern Greek), published by the Hogarth Press, and now quite scarce. Constantine P. Cavafy (1864-1933) is now acknowledged as one of the greatest poets of the 20th century, but was almost unknown in his lifetime, living in Alexandria and writing for only a very small circle of acquaintances and publishing nothing. It was there that he met and impressed E. M. Forster, who memorably described "a Greek gentleman in a straw hat, standing absolutely motionless at a slight angle to the universe". Prior to this edition, English translations by George Valassopoulo of some poems had appeared in disparate publications, but this Hogarth edition constitutes the first English edition of the bulk of Cavafy's oeuvre. Mavrogordato notes at the beginning that his translation "was originally made in 1937, at the request of some of Cavafy's English friends, from the complete edition published in Alexandria in 1935; but it remained unpublished."

Her sensational book Silent Spring (1962) warned of the dangers to all natural systems from the misuse of chemical pesticides such as DDT, and questioned the scope and direction of modern science, initiated the contemporary environmental movement. Carson was a student of nature, a born ecologist before that science was defined, and a writer who found that the natural world gave her something to write about. Born in Springdale, Pennsylvania, upstream from the industrial behemoth of Pittsburgh, she became a marine scientist working for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Washington, DC, primarily as a writer and editor. She was always aware of the impact that humans had on the natural world. Her first book, Under the Sea-Wind (1941) was a gripping account of the interactions of a sea bird, a fish and an eel -- who PHOTO: Turtleshared life in the open seas. A canny scholar working in government during World War II, Carson took advantage of the latest scientific material for her … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pollock, Jackson
New York: Betty Parsons Gallery, 1951. Poster, printed both sides in black on buff laid paper. Folded in sixths. 43.3 x 56 cm / 17 x 22 in. (oversquare). Some signs of aging at edges; very small loss of paper at top right corner not affecting text or image. The folds are all whole and with no rubbing. In an essay by Jerome Weeks describing the Pollock retrospective at the Dallas Museum of Art in 1915, he writes of the new works, "just black enamel on raw canvas... [with] hints of faces and figures - precisely the kind of traditional imagery he'd rejected." He continues, "The show was a disaster. Later, Parson reportedly sold a single painting -- for half-price." Still, wouldn't you have liked to have been walking to the gallery that afternoon at 3:55 p.m., shivering, no doubt? An accompanying catalogue is available from various sellers for $250-$350, should the buyer of this poster want one.

Laid in are eleven 8½" x 11" photocopied pages of a typed treatment for staging the book as a play, with handwritten corrections. All pages have been folded and are very good with shallow chips and tears. Kathryn Cochran Cravens, 1898-1991, a radio personality, actress and writer from Texas was the first female news commentator to be broadcast coast-to-coast. *Pursuit of Gentlemen*, her only novel, was published in 1951, the manuscript won first prize from the National League of American Penwomen in 1948. The novel is a fictionalized version of her adventures as a trailblazing woman with humble Texas beginnings finding her way through New York society. She started her career playing small parts for Fox Films in Hollywood. The following decade would include work in silent films and eventually radio, where she found her niche. By 1930 she was given her own news program in St. Louis, "News Through a Woman's Eyes." CBS eventually picked up the show and Cravens moved to New York. Additionally she wrote columns for *Cosmopolitan*, *The New York Times*, and *The Christian Science Monitor* before focusing on the war effort. In 1945 she became the first woman wartime correspondent. She was later acknowledged for her efforts with a special citation presented by the United States Army.

ELIOT, T.S.
Faber Book News, 1951. Two pages of electrostencilled publicity mailing. The first page being an introduction (almost certainly written by Eliot) and the second page containing the poem, "Cat Morgan Introduces Himself". The extremely rare first appearance of Cat Morgan Introduces Himself, which was incorporated into "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" as the final poem from the 1953 (11th impression) edition onwards. The two page flyer was issued with Faber's Autumn and Winter Catalogue for 1951. The introductory page states, "The front cover of Faber & Faber's new Autumn and Winter catalogue bears an attractive drawing by Margaret Wolpe of the portico of 24, Russell Square. On the back cover you will find a [picture of a black cat] approaching. He is advancing to take up his favourite seat, cuddled up against and protected by the door-scraper. Morgan, for that is his name, is the Faber & Faber cat. We were astonished to find the biographical note written in verse, but perhaps this is not surprising if one considers the literary atmosphere in which he has passed so much of his life." The following poem carries the footnote to the effect that it may be reproduced without permission, and was according to Gallup "widely reprinted in various newspapers". It was issued under Eliot's name in the Animal's Magazine, and subsequently as a broadside by Donald Gallup entitled "Cat Morgan's Apology" in 1953, in an edition of 30 copies. Not listed in Gallup though referred to E2g (Gallup's 1953 Broadsheet). Copies of the poem are present in the British Library and as part of the Haywa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fabien Coup dit « de Fréjac », connu sous le nom de Fabien Fabiano est un peintre et illustrateur français, né le 10 octobre 1882 à Lamballe en Bretagne, et mort en juin 1962 à Paris. Descendant d'une famille de marins (son trisaïeul était corsaire, son grand-père commandait le Cap-hornier Le Grand Pacifique), il était peu destiné à devenir un peintre de la femme. « Mais je touche quand même à la marine, expliquera-t-il, en ce sens que dans ma famille, c'est moi qui ai fait naufrage en faisant du dessin ». Autocritique de peu de fondement puisque Fabien Fabiano connut entre les deux guerres une immense réputation : Gaston Derys le comparait à Daumier et à Gavarni, André Thérive le qualifiait de « peintre sérieux de frivolités, comme le furent Fragonard et Lancret ». Enfant, il passe ses vacances dans le petit port de Dahouët, poursuit ses études à Saint-Servan et puis fait son service milit … [Click Below for Full Description]
