        Crazy People [The Goon Show]: Series 1, Episode 12

      Np [BBC], London 1951 - 22 mimeographed pp., secured with split pin to top left. Slight edgewear and age-toning, two pencil markings to title page, one ('POW') alluding to the subject matter of the episode (Prisoners of War). First edition. Original mimeographed script, the twelfth episode from Series One of The Goon Show, transmitted on 16 August 1951 . ALL RECORDINGS FROM THE FIRST SERIES OF THE GOON SHOW HAVE BEEN LOST. The Goon Show ran for ten series between 1951 and 1960 -- although it wasn't called The Goon Show until Series Two: '[W]e soon met opposition to this title from the BBC. As spokesman for the others, I found myself once more at odds with the planners, whose suggestion for a title was The Junior Crazy Gang. This implicit comparison with the very popular Palladium Crazy Gang was both unapt and inept. 'Why not The Goon Show?', I demanded. They brushed this aside as being meaningless. The controversy continued, and the first six programmes were booked under the BBC's suggested title. Finally, however, we compromised with the title, Crazy People. Determined to have our own way, we amplified this within the programme to 'those Crazy People, The Goons', and made reference internally always to The Goon Show. After the first series, the BBC gave in and our title was adopted.' (Jimmy Grafton, The Goon Show Companion). This script featured the core cast of Milligan, Sellers, Secombe and Bentine -- and The Stargazers, a close-harmony group who must have felt they'd wandered into the wrong studio every week. They were dropped midway through Series Two. No recordings from Series One of The Goon Show exist. The few scripts from the series which survive are now our only remaining link to the early days of a show which redefined 'funny', and which made Monty Python possible.

        All Star Bill

      Np [BBC], London 1951 - 2 episodes. No. 8: 15 mimeographed pp., secured with staples across top edge. No. 11 (incomplete): 12 mimeographed pp., secured with split pin to top left. Amendments and timings through both scripts, edgeworn and age-toned. First editions. Not content with getting The Goon Show up and running, in 1951 Jimmy Grafton was also providing scripts for this weekly light entertainment show featuring '.the musical stars of showbusiness in Britain.' (Producer Dennis Main Wilson was also working on both shows). Compered by a different host each week, these episodes featured, among others, Dorothy Squires, Vanessa Lee, Ted Ray, Cyril Fletcher and The George Mitchell Glee Club. These scripts (one of which bears the ownership name 'SYLVIA') were used to edit the shows: both carry numerous deletions and amendments, and both are marked with show timings throughout.

        Editor's Holograph Manuscript of THE DIARIES OF LEWIS CARROLL, NOW FIRST EDITED AND SUPPLEMENTED by ROGER LANCELYN GREEN. Vol. I: 1855-67 Vol. II: 1867-98

      Poulton-Lancelyn, Bebington, Wirral, 1951-1952; published by cassel, 1953. (CARROLL, LEWIS) 4to. 354 leaves, foliated [1-3], i-vi, 1-181, [1]; [1]- 163. With numerous corrections, and occasional notes on rectos and margins. Some minor wear at edges, and slight occasional soiling, but overall very good, and an impressively preserved manuscript in its entirety. Custom morocco-backed slipcase and chemise . Before the publication of this work, the Diaries of Lewis Carroll had been largely unavailable after their temporary disappearance following the publication of Collingwood's THE LIFE AND LETTERS OF LEWIS CARROLL in 1898. When, at last, all but 4 (which were lost) of the original 13 volumes reappeared in a cellar, Dodgson's nieces and Executors of the estate commissioned Green to undertake the editing and publication of their uncle's diaries Green's book was the first publication of the diaries, and, until recently, it was all that has been available to scholars who were unable to consult the original manuscript (now in the British Library). Even though Green and the family made some deliberate omissions, it is the first major transcription of Lewis Carroll's famous Diaries to appear in print. As Green noted, "The fact that the Diaries have been inaccessible for the general critic, biographer and research student has led to the suggestion that they contain information about Lewis Carroll which his pious relations wish to keep from the world. That rumour can be now set at rest once and for all: they contain nothing whatsoever about Lewis Carroll that the world at large could not read." Green describes the editorial process and remarks "Thus family troubles were, naturally, entered into the Diaries, and family feeling has as naturally wished to keep those personal matters private." The manuscript, closely written in Green's clear hand, contains numerous interesting notes and directions to the printer/ publisher which are not included in the published version, as for example this note on a separate leaf, dated Sept. 1951, at the end of Volume I: "NOTE TO PUBLISHER "The next section of the Diary, from July 12 to Sept 13, 1867, was sold to Mr. M.L. Parish [sic] of Pine Valley, New Jersey, and privately printed for him in an edition of sixty-six copies with the title TOUR IN 1867 BY C.L. DODGSON. It was published in 1935 ... [as part of] THE RUSSIAN JOURNAL AND OTHER SELECTIONS ... by E.P. Dutton and Co. New York "If desired, this can be included in the present book as Chapter VIII of Volume One ... it is felt by the Editor and Miss Dodgson that the decision whether to include this extra material must be left to the Publisher. R.L.G. Sept: 1951."

        The Caine Mutiny (Signed)

      Doubleday, NY 1951 - Book shows one nickel-sized bump to the bottom (middle) of the front panel. The dustwrapper is price-clipped and is the second state (with just The City Boy listed on the blurb on the back panel). This is the true first edition (stated) of this rather scarce Wouk that was the basis for the movie of the same name. Overall, a tight, bright, clean copy in a most acceptable dustwrapper. Signed by Mr. Wouk on a bookplate affixed to the half-title page. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        THE CAINE MUTINY

      Doubleday & Company, Garden City 1951 - The novel begins with the battle-scarred ship Caine's departure from San Francisco (Sept. 1943), to the typhoon and mutiny off the Philippines (Dec. 1944) and the ensuing court-marshall. Captain Queeg is a poor leader; what ought the rank and file do when unquestioned obedience is mandatory? The intellectual dilemna is not new and all the more greater for servicemen of educated and free countries. From the age old problem, in the deft hands of Herman Wouk, a classic is born. A Pulitzer Prize winning novel; the basis for the great 1954 film of the same title. Satisfaction guaranteed. 494pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
