        Barabbas [Rare Association Copy Signed 4x: Signed by Par Lagerkvist, Anthony Quinn, Arthur Kennedy, and Jack Palance / Ingraverat 4x]

      Random House, 1951, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fine, Dust Jacket Condition: very good +, First editionA Fine copy of the first American edition, first printing (showing only light edge wear and slight lightening at the board extremities, small bump to the bottom of the front board), in a Very Good + price-clipped dust jacket (with light edge wear and light surface rubbing to the front panel, short tear with loss to the lower inch of the front flap turn, slight fray wear to the upper left corner of the rear flap, a couple of tiny closed edge tears), being the personal copy of Actor and decorated US Naval Officer Douglas Fairbanks - with his bookplate to the front pastedown, SIGNED BY PAR LAGERKVIST on the title page, SIGNED BY ARTHUR KENNEDY and by ANTHONY QUINN on the first half-title, and SIGNED BY JACK PALANCE on the second half-title, which follows the preface. (The book contains two half-titles and no front free endpaper.) Elected in 1940 as one of the 18 "Immortals" of the Swedish Academy, Par Lagerkvist was as highly influential writer from his twenties into his seventies and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1951 "for the artistic vigour and true independence of mind with which he endeavors in his poetry to find answers to the eternal questions confronting mankind". In his Presentation speech, Anders Ã-sterling, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, specifically cited Barabbas as one of Lagerkvist's major and most emblematic works, stating that "while Pär Lagerkvist makes use of different genres, dramatic or lyric, epic or satiric, his way of grasping reality remains fundamentally the same. ...each work plays the role of a stone in an edifice he intends to build; each is a part of his mission, a mission that always bears on the same subject: the misery and grandeur of what is human, the slavery to which earthly life condemns us, and the heroic struggle of the spirit for its liberation. This is the theme in all the works we choose to recall at this time: Gäst hos verkligheten (1925) [Guest of Reality]; Hjärtats sÃ¥nger (1926) [Songs from the Heart]; Han som fick leva om sitt liv (1928) [He Who Lived His Life Over Again]; Dvärgen (1944) [The Dwarf]; Barabbas (1950). It is needless to cite others to give an idea of the scope of Lagerkvist's inspirations and the power of his genius." A REMARKABLE ASSOCIATION COPY, Lagerkvist has signed the book "from Par Lagerkvist", Arthur Kennedy has signed "Cordially / Arthur / Kennedy", below Arthur Kennedy's signature Anthony Quinn has signed with a quite personal "Tony Quinn", and Jack Palance has inscribed and signed the book as follows: "Doug / Hope you're / around for the next / big one "WW III" - my bestest, / Jack Palance" followed by a doodle incorporating the capital "E" used here by Palance to finish his signature. (In the inscription, "WW III" is underlined and appears beneath "big one". Both Jack Palance and Douglas Fairbanks served in the US forces during World War II.) The first of Lagerkvist's works to be published in the United States, the novel gives a somewhat fictionalized account of Barabbas, the violent Jewish insurrectionist who, at the behest of the gathered crowd, was freed by Pontius Pilot (then the Prefect of the Roman Province, Judaea) in lieu of the innocent Jesus. Through Barabbas, Lagerkvist explores the fundamental question of good and evil. Quite well received, the novel immediately was described by many, including Andre Gide, as a masterpiece. The book provided the basis for the 1962 Dino De Laurentiis film of the same name starring Anthony Quinn as Barabbas, and featuring Arthur Kennedy as Pontius Pilate, Jack Palance as Torvald - the fiercest and most-skilled of the Gladiators, Silvana Mangano, Katy Jurado, Harry Andrews, Ernest Borgnine, and Vittorio Gassman. Beyond our shelves, signed copies of Lagerkvist's books in English translation are quite uncommon and difficult to obtain. This copy has an impeccable Provenance and has been signed with inscriptions 3 times, once by the novel's Nobel Prize winning Author, and once by each of the actors Anthony Quinn and Jack Palance who starred in the film, and has been further signed by Anthony Quinn who played Barabbas in the film. An excellent copy of perhaps the best-known novel ever written by a Swede, and his debut book publication in the United States, SIGNED BY PAR LAGERKVIST, ANTHONY QUINN, ARTHUR KENNEDY, AND JACK PALANCE. RARE INDEED.

        THE CATCHER IN THE RYE

      Little, Brown & Co, Boston 1951 - A bright copy of this iconic work. Book Near Fine with a small scuff on the front panel and a discrete ownership signature on the front endpaper, but clean and fresh throughout with bright gilt on the spine. In a dust jacket that is Very Good+ with light chipping and wear at the spine ends and minor toning, but well above average. This copy properly measures 8" tall, states "First Edition" on the copyright page, has the price correctly positioned on the front flap, as well as Salinger's photo on the rear panel with his head touching the upper edge. Salinger's novel was not the first coming-of-age story to highlight teenage angst, but it sits squarely as the pinnacle of those efforts. It follows Holden Caulfield's perspective on school, New York City, sexuality, family and friends, and, of course, phonies, with a subtext on alienation and loneliness running throughout the book. "In American writing, there are three perfect books, which seem to speak to every reader and condition: 'Huckleberry Finn,' 'The Great Gatsby,' and 'The Catcher in the Rye.' Of the three, only 'Catcher' defines an entire region of human experience: it is-in French and Dutch as much as in English-the handbook of the adolescent heart." (Adam Gopnik writing for "The New Yorker" Feb. 8, 2010). Near Fine in Very Good +. dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Question of Upbringing

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1951. First American edition. 1 vols. 8vo. Publisher's blue cloth. Fine in slightly rubbed and worn, but bright, unclipped dust jacket, with two tiny chips from head and foot of spine. Architectural bookplate of New York City poet and architect, Edward Steese, with an TLS to him laid in from Anthony Powell; as well as 2 retained TLSs from Steese to Powell preserved in Powell's envelope to Steese, tipped to the front free endpaper. With a Letter from Powell "I am a great admirer of GATSBY" This is Powell's first novel in the 12-volume series DANCE TO THE MUSIC OF TIME, and this copy found a warm reception in the hands of the American architect and poet, EDWARD STEESE, who wrote a letter of praise to Powell on May 1 ("Nothing so good, of the sort, has ever been done before ..."). Powell's response, of May 14, 1951: " "Many thanks for your very flattering letter about A Question of Upbringing. I am delighted that you should have enjoyed the book, because even on this side some of the reviewers described it as 'very English', and, although personally I think the things it deals with are common to all all countries and societies, I was not sure whether the idiom might not be obscure when transplanted. There are to be at least four more volumes, and it is possible that others may be necessary to clear up some of the situations. I "I have not been in the States since about 1937 when I tried , unsuccessfully, to get a job in Hollywood, and was later in New York. If I ever turn up there again it would certainly be nice if we could meet. As it happens I havent met the two members of Scribners' staff you mention, though I know Charles Scribner and John Wheelock - and of course John Carter, who is their English representative, [added by hand] and was at school with me ..." And in in a handwritten postwcript, Powell adds: "Unfortunately all my earlier novels excepty for FROM A VIEW TO A DEATH are now out of print, and I can't get hold of them myself - but I hope in due course this will be rectified, though production difficulties - as you probably know - are very great over here. I wonder if you knew Scott Fitzgerald at Princeton. I met him in Hollywood, and am a great admirer of GATSBY ...".

        Robert Frost sends a fellow poet a copy of his book, signing his name and addressing both sides of the mailing box

      Mailing Box Signed ?R. Frost? twice, 8.75? x 6?. Two ?Parcel Post? labels addressed by Frost, one for each side of the box: FROM ?R. Frost / 25 Brewster St / Cambridge Mass? TO ?Mr. Harold Corbin / Lake Forest Academy / Lake Forest / Illinois.? Nine 3¢ Statue of Liberty stamps affixed and cancelled on one side. Frost has written ?Book? (part of the ?k? is scraped). The mailing box is in fair condition but the two address labels, each filled out and signed by Frost, are in fine condition. Harold Corbin was headmaster at Lake Forest Academy, Lake Forest, Illinois, from 1951-1969. He was a good friend and collector of Robert Frost. In fact, a signed manuscript by Frost of his poem ?The Objection To Being Stepped On,? dated October 18, 1957, in the Amherst (Mass.) College Archives is inscribed: ?For Florin and Harold Corbin At L.F.A. where it was first read aloud." A printed photograph ?Poet Robert Frost sits between Headmaster Harold Corbin and his wife, Florie Corbin, during Frost?s visit to Lake Forest Academy, October 1961? is included. Harold Corbin was also a poet whose books of poems, published in the 1980s and 1990s, include Counting I, Counting II, Counting III, Before I Sleep, and Nethering: New and Collected Poems. The book Frost sent is not present. There is no postmark on the mailing box, but 3¢ stamps were used as regular postage until 1958. Since Frost used nine 3¢ coil stamps, which came in a roll of 100, he most likely still had these stamps after rates were increased. It is possible that the book may have been In the Clearing, his first collection of new poems in 15 years. Published in 1962, the book includes ?The Gift Outright,? written for President Kennedy?s inauguration. An unsigned copy of this book is present. It is in very good condition, with original dust jacket. A previous owner has signed the title page adding ?Sept. 62.?

        A Collection of Warhol's early Work in Books and Magazines

      1951. AN ARCHIVE -- WARHOL AS BOOK DESIGNER WARHOL, Andy. A Collection of Warhol's Early Work in Books and Magazines. Comprised of 46 books and 10 magazines. Various formats, sizes and bindings, each as originally issued. Each item preserved in new cloth folding box. Various Places: 1951-2004.A nearly complete collection of Warhol's work as an illustrator, and as a designer of dust jackets for trade publications, as well as covers for magazines. This aspect of Warhol's creative output is little known, little collected, and the material has been largely ignored. A recent exhibition entitled Reading Warhol at the Brandhorst Museum in Munich brought much of the forgotten material to the attention of Warhol scholars and collectors. However, that exhibition covered only books and ephemera, and did not deal with his magazine covers. The majority of our collection documents Warhol's early work, beginning shortly after he arrived in New York from Pittsburgh in 1949. The importance of these illustrated book and magazine covers is easily understood when one sees how his later style evolved from the imagery seen in these early works. The collection includes 10 magazines for which Warhol designed the covers, including the celebrated cover for Esquire, all 5 issues of Time magazine, and his covers for Vogue, Playboy and Opera News. Lacking only four books listed in Reading Warhol, and not including the seven books published by Warhol himself in small handmade editions. The dust wrappers for the books published in the fifties and sixties are extremely rare and are now virtually impossible to find on the market.
