        John Steinbeck&#39;s Original Pedigree of His Beloved Dog Charley [Author of: Travels with Charley, The Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice and Men, In Dubious Battle, East of Eden, Tortilla Flat, and others] WAS $6,750

      Bercy [Paris]: [No Publisher Stated], 1951. First edition. PRESENTLY DISCOUNTED. WAS $6,750. The Original Document of Pedigree for John Steinbeck&#39;s beloved Poodle, Charley (whose full name, as given by John Steinbeck, was "Charles le Chien"). The Document, duly executed in France and sent from the Breeder to John Steinbeck, came from John Steinbeck&#39;s Manhattan apartment and was obtained at the 2010 Bloomsbury Auction of John Steinbeck&#39;s personal property. The document is contained on a single sheet of paper measuring approximately 12 1/4 inches X 18 1/2 inches folded in the middle to produce a 4-page document measuring 12 1/4 inches X 9 1/4 inches. The Pedigree is in Fine condition with a bit of toning and a small stray mark to the front page, and has been folded twice horizontally, presumably for mailing to John Steinbeck. As Charley was dearly beloved to John Steinbeck and Steinbeck&#39;s lone constant companion on his trip around the United States not long before his (Steinbeck&#39;s) death, and as he is, with Steinbeck, the central figure in Steinbeck&#39;s book "Travels with Charley", this document connects one to one of the most important "people" in John Steinbeck&#39;s life: His famous Poodle, Charley. Shortly after completing his last novel, "The Winter of Our Discontent", Steinbeck found himself disenchanted with the state of his Country and its rampant consumerism and selfishness. Feeling that he had lost touch with America and Americans, Steinbeck wrote to his close friend Frank Loesser stating, in part: "In the fall - right after Labor Day - I&#39;m going to learn about my own country. I&#39;ve lost the flavor and taste and sound of it....I&#39;m buying a pick-up truck ...I&#39;m going alone...zigzagging...I&#39;ll avoid cities, hit small towns and farms and ranches. I&#39;ll sit in bars and hamburger stands and on Sunday go to Church....always zigzagging. Elaine will join me occasionally but mostly I have to go alone. What I&#39;ll get I need badly - a re-knowledge of my own country...." He set off from Sag Harbor on September 23, 1960 with only Charley as his companion. His wife, Elaine, later said: "I remember when he asked to take Charley Dog. He said rather meekly &#39;This is a big favor I&#39;m going to ask, Elaine. Can I take Charley?&#39;" Early in the book, Steinbeck stated: "It is some years since I have been alone, nameless, friendless, without any of the safety one gets from family, friends, and accomplices...It&#39;s just a very lonely, helpless feeling at first - a kind of desolate feeling. For this reason I took one companion on my journey - an old French gentleman poodle known as Charley. Actually his name is Charles le Chien. He was born in Bercy on the outskirts of Paris and trained in France, and while he knows a little poodle-English, he responds quickly only to commands in French." A great rarity, the Original Pedigree for Charley, provides a true connection with John Steinbeck, a dog he treasured, and his travels around his own country made so that he could get to know it anew. RARE INDEED.

        The Enchafèd Flood: Or, the Romantic Iconography of the Sea

      London: Faber and Faber, 1951 First UK edition. Signed by the author in blue ink on the title page. Publisher&#39;s blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt; in the original pictorial dust jacket, front panel lettered in blue with red marine decorations over a green striped background. Very good, with some light wear to the extremities, former owner&#39;s signature to the front free endpaper, otherwise bright and clean pages; unclipped dust jacket, with some wear and small nicks to the extremities, some toning to the spine, some light stains and soiling to panels. Bloomfield A28. The Enchafèd Flood contains Auden&#39;s three Page-Barbour Lectures given at the University of Virginia in 1949: "The Sea and the Desert," "The Stone and the Shell," "Ishmael-Don Quixote." The Page-Barbour Lectures is an endowed annual series of orations on a topic of the speaker&#39;s choosing. The lectures are subsequently published in book format. For his lectures, Auden chose 19th century Romantic oceanic imagery as his subject, specifically the symbolism of the solitary voyager figure. Naturally, Moby Dick was a central part of these discussions. While these speeches were specifically crafted for the Page-Barbour Lectures, Auden discussed similar themes relating to sea imagery in his previously published essays. Auden chose the title The Enchafèd Flood from a line in Shakespeare&#39;s Othello: "I never did like molestation view/ On the enchafèd flood.". Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

"Traumgaleere /// Der Mond ist über den Strom gespannt, / In dem die Fische schlaflos laichen, / Die Sternenwinde sind verbannt, / Der Tag schickt seine Morsezeichen. /// Es bringen den ersten Sonnenstrahl / Dir in den Kerker die Gewehre: / Durch diesen Vorhang aus blauem Stahl / Musst Du erst fliehn!

Danach ging er in die Bundesrepublik. - Gedruckt in der ersten Buchveröffentlichung (München 1957) von Horst Bienek: "Traumbuch eines Gefangenen". - Auf der Rückseite wenige Zahlen (wohl von fremder Hand) in Bleistift, diese wären leicht ausradierbar, sonst sehr gut.

        The Catcher In The Rye

      Boston: Little Brown, 1951. Boston: Little Brown, 1951. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a bright fine dust jacket without the usual tanning to the spine and without any chips or tears. The dust jacket is the correct first issue with the cropping of Salinger's head on the rear panel and the price on the front flap. Housed in a custom clamshell box. An exceptional copy.Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher In the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists. It begins, "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them.

Original purple cloth backed blue boards, titles to spine and front board in pink, pictorial endpapers, top edge purple. With the dust jacket. Illustrations throughout by Al Hirschfield. Lower corner worn. An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with a few nicks, short splits, and some minor creasing. First edition, first printing. Elaborately inscribed by Hirschfield on the light blue front blank, "To Arnold Weissberger, with affection, Al Hirschfield. 1/27/54", along with a large drawing in red ink by Hirschfield, who has incorporated the publisher&#39;s logo printed into a typical self-portrait - as a slightly crazed looking, hirsute figure - the Simon and Schuster device forming the fretboard and sound-hole of a bass-like instrument in the artist&#39;s hands. Also on the front free endpaper is a gift inscription in another hand presenting the book to Weissberger, who was a New York-based theatrical lawyer and celebrity photographer with a wide international clientele. Weissberger may have received the book as a gift and then had Hirschfield inscribe it later.
