        Principles and Problems of Theory Construction in Psychology.

      [1951].. 4°. 21 pages. Stapled Paper - which circulated between Feigls colleagues and fellow philosophers. This paper attached with a note from Georg (Berry) to Henry (Aiken): "This is the Feigl paper I mentioned. Since this is my only copy, could i have it back eventually - no hurry. George" - Handwritten information: "Published in Current Trends in Psychological Theory - University of Pittsburgh Press, 1951. From the library of Henry David Aiken.. Herbert Feigl (December 14, 1902 - June 1, 1988) was an Austrian philosopher and a member of the Vienna Circle. The son of a weaver, Feigl was born in Reichenberg (Liberec), Bohemia, and matriculated at the University of Vienna in 1922. He studied physics and philosophy under Moritz Schlick, the founder of the Vienna Circle, and received his doctorate in 1927 for the essay "Chance and Law: An Epistemological Analysis of the Roles of Probability and Induction in the Natural Sciences." He published his first book, Theory and Experience in Physics, in 1929. He became an active member in the Vienna Circle during this time: he was one of the few Circle members (along with Schlick and Friedrich Waismann) to have extensive conversations with Ludwig Wittgenstein and Karl Popper. In 1930, on an International Rockefeller Scholarship at Harvard University, Feigl met the physicist Percy Williams Bridgman, the philosopher Willard Van Orman Quine, and the psychologist Stanley Smith Stevens, all of whom he saw as kindred spirits. In a 1931 paper with Albert Blumberg, "Logical Positivism: A New European Movement," he argued for logical positivism to be re-named "logical empiricism" based upon certain realist differences between contemporary philosophy of science and the older positivist movement. In 1931, Feigl married Maria Kaspar and emigrated with her to the United States, settling in Iowa to take up a position in the philosophy department at the University of Iowa. His son, Eric Otto, was born in 1933. In 1940, he accepted a position as professor of philosophy at the University of Minnesota, where he remained for 31 years. His close professional and personal relationship with Wilfrid Sellars produced many different collaborative projects, including the textbook Readings in Philosophical Analysis and the journal Philosophical Studies, which he and Sellars founded in 1949. In 1953, with a grant from the Hill Foundation, he established the Minnesota Center for Philosophy of Science. He was appointed Regents Professor of the University of Minnesota in 1967. He believed that empiricism is the only adequate philosophy for experimental science. Though he became a philosopher instead of a chemist, he never lost the perspective, and the scientific commonsense, of a practical scientist. He was, in the paradigmatic sense, a philosopher of science. Feigl retired in 1971 and died of cancer on June 1, 1988 in Minneapolis. (Wikipedia)

        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. Near fine in the dust jacket which has had some professional restoration to the spine extremities. 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 half morocco clamshell box.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.

      Santo Sospir (Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat), 12. IV. 1951.. 1 page in-petit 4.. A Mary Hoeck, traductrice de ses oeuvres en anglais: "Je ne vous ai pas envoye de lettre parce qu'il fallait que j'acheve le portrait de Cegeste. Je crois que ce portrait peut vous plaire. J'avais, en outre l'obligation de repondre a und masse de correspondance qui s'empilait sur une table.

De Sica a eu la gentillesse de declarer au public qui n'aurait jamais ose faire ce film sans les miens - et il m'a embrasse sous la mitraille des photographes. Lorsqu'un homme triomphe, cette attitude est assez rare. Asquith aussi a ete tres elegant.

        Urkundenbuch der südlichen Teile des Kantons St. Gallen (Gaster, Sargans, Werdenberg). Herausgegeben vom Staats- und Stiftsarchiv St. Gallen. I. Band: 2./3. Jh. [-1285]; 2. Band: 1285-1340.

      Rorschach, Buchdruckerei Dr. H. Cavelti 1951-1961, bzw. E. Lehner [1970-] 1982.. 2 Bände (cpl.). 4°. XXVI, 512,102 u. XVI, 1 Bl., 662 SS. Ln. (blau, lamin. i.d.A. v. KLdr.) mit mont. Rückenschildern. Stellenweise saubere Unterstreichungen u. (hilfreiche) Randnotizen von kundiger Hand (meist in Bleistift, v.a. im Register gelegentlich in farbigem Marker, generell wenig störend), Besitzervermerk a. Vorsätzen. Gesamthaft recht gutes Exemplar.. Texte der Urkunden in Latein oder Mittelhochdeutsch. - Das Werk erschien ursprünglich in zweimal 10 Lieferungen. - Beide Bände mit sep. Personen- und Ortsregister. - "Nachdem seit dem Jahr 1863 im nördlichen Teile des Kantons St. Gallen mit dem 'Urkundenbuch der Abtei St. Gallen' die Dokumente der Vergangenheit der Oeffentlichkeit stetig erschlosssen wurden, war es an der Zeit, dass ein Gleiches auch für die südlichen Kantonsteile erwirkt werde. Zwar erschienen im Jahre 1850 'Die Regesten der Benedictiner-Abtei Pfävers [Pfäfers] und der Landschaft Sargans [..]'. Diese Publikation umfasste jedoch ausschliesslich den im Titel aufgeführten Gebietsbereich und liess Gaster und Werdenberg ausser Betracht. [..] Das 'Urkundenbuch der südlichen Teile [..]' ist ein regionales Urkundenbuch. [..] Der Leser wird sich nun fragen, warum [..] der Bezirk See nicht mit inbegriffen ist? Dies kommt daher, weil die ausgesprochen südlichen Teile des heutigen Kantons St. Gallen doch nicht ein zusammenhangloses Gebilde sind [..]. Alle diese Kantonsteile gehörten nämlich - ausgenommen der Bezirk See, d.h. die früheren Herrschaften Rapperswil und Uznach - zum alten Rätien, genauer genommen zum Comitatus Raetiae Curiensis (Churwalchen), und zum Bistum Chur und nicht zum Bistum Konstanz. Die Herrschaften Uznach und Rapperswil gehörten indes zum Bistum Konstanz, zum Zürichgau und mit diesem und St. Gallen zu Alemannien, während die Landschaften Gaster, Sargans und Werdenberg samt den Gemeinden Wildhaus und Rüthi zur Provincia Raetia zählten und ursprünglich im Gegensatz zu den Alemannien zugeteilten Gebieten rätoromanischer Sprache waren, welche ihrerseits aus dem Lateinischen hervorgegangen ist. [..] Enger betrachtet gehörten die Landschaften Gaster, Sargans und Werdenberg bis und mit Grabs, sodann die bündnerische Herrschaft Maienfeld ohne Malans, ferner das heutige Fürstentum Liechtenstein [..] zum karolinigschen rätischen Amtsbezirk 'Ministerium in Planis' und kirchlich zum 'Archidiaconatus infra Langarum' oder 'Unter der Landquart'. [..] Die heute nicht zum Kanton St. Gallen gehörenden Gebiete in diesen Bereichen haben wir im Urkundenbuch aber weggelassen. Die Grafschaften Sargans und Werdenberg sind ihrerseits Aufsplitterungen der alten Grafschaft Unterrätien. [..] Es ist vorgesehen, das 'Urkundenbuch [..]' bis zum Jahre 1430 fortzuführen. 1430 ist die letzte runde Zahl vor Beginn der grossen Mehrung der das Sarganserland betreffenden Urkunden. 1437 erhoben sich die Gemeinden an der Seez und am Rheinknie gegen Graf Heinrich von Sargans, gründeten unter der Führung Peter Weibels so etwas wie einen vierten rätischen Bund, verbündeten sich mit Chur, dem Zehngerichten- und obern Bund und nannten sich freiheitslustig das 'Sarganserland'. [..] Es ist hier nicht unsere Aufgabe, diese Geschichte darzustellen; letztere lässt aber erkennen, dass eben jetzt die Urkunden zahlreich werden wie nie zuvor. [..] Die Vorsicht mahnte also die Herausgeber des Urkundenbuches, eben vor diesem kritischen Zeitpunkte das Werk abzuschliessen." (Bd. 1, pp. IX-XII). -- Franz Perret war nicht nur ein hoch qualifizierter, sondern auch der am besten vorbereitete Bearbeiter und eigentliche Spezialist für die anspruchsvollen Aufgaben, die die Herausgabe gerade dieses Werks stellte. Bereits in den Jahren 1936-1938 hatte er in mühsamer Eigenregie eine in 18 Einzellieferungen erschienene immense Forschungsarbeit publiziert unter dem Titel 'Fontes ad historiam regionis in Planis : Quellen zur Geschichte der Bezirke Gaster, Sargans und Werdenberg, als der raetischen Teile des Kantons St. Gallen erstmals im vollen Textlaut nebst einer Übersetzung mit Erläuterungen zusammengestellt' (über 1200 SS.; Zürich, Im Selbstverlag). - Franz Perret (Schwerzenbach 1904-1979 St. Gallen), von Mels. Klosterschulen in Näfels und Stans, Rechtsstudium in Paris und Genf, lic. iur. Ab 1936 gab Perret auf privater Basis frühe Quellen zur Geschichte Unterrätiens heraus. Ab 1940 arbeitete er am Bündner und ab 1942 am Liechtensteiner Urkundenbuch und von 1946 bis zu seinem Tod an jenem der südlichen Teile des Kantons St. Gallen (1951-1982). 1958-1968 war Perret Staatsarchivar und Kantonsbibliothekar von St. Gallen und 1968-1978 Stiftsarchivar. Perret publizierte über die Abtei Pfäfers und das Sarganserland. Er hatte eine Vorliebe für die romanische Kultur. 1965 erhielt er als Erster den sarganserländischen Kulturpreis. (L. Hollenstein, in: HLS). -- NETTOGEWICHT 3.8 kg

        Through the road of a Neo-Realism or modern social realistic painting in Mexico / Por la Via de una Pintura Neorrealista o Realista Social Moderna en Mexico / Sur la Route d'une Peinture Neo-Realiste ou Realiste Social Moderne au Mexique. 215 Reproductions/Reproducciones.

      Mexico, Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes, 1951.. Square-Folio. 240 images. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket. INSCRIBED by David Alfaro Siqueiros. Extensive dedication by Siqueiros to the photographer Bernard Myers (author of: Bernard S. Myers, Mexican Painting in Our Time (1956). Original cloth with only like dustjacket. Some major repairs to dustjacket.. Jose David Alfaro Siqueiros (December 29, 1896 in Camargo, Chihuahua, Mexico - January 6, 1974 in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico) was a social realist painter (muralist), and also a Stalinist, known for large murals in fresco that established the Mexican Mural Renaissance together with work by Diego Rivera, Orozco, and others. His notable projects include his collaborative mural at the Mexican Electricians' Union (1939-1940), From Porfiriato to the Revolution at the Museum of National History (1957-55), March of Humanity and the Polyforum Cultural Siqueiros on Avenida Insurgentes (1965-1971), and his role in procuring mural commissions for artists on the University City campus of the National Autonomous University of Mexico in 1950s Mexico City. Siqueiros was one of "the big three" Mexican muralists, led by Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco. His art directly reflected the time period in which he flourished as an artist. His art was deeply rooted in the Spanish Civil War and the Mexican Revolution, a violent and chaotic period in Mexican history in which various social and political factions fought for recognition and power. The period from the 1920s to the 1950s is known as the Mexican Mural Renaissance, (see also Mexican Muralism) and Siqueiros was active in the attempt to create an art that was at once Mexican and universal. From 1919 to 1922 he traveled to Belgium, France, Italy, and Spain to study art. Throughout his career he traveled internationally, promoting his version of muralism in the United States, South America (including Uruguay, Argentina and Chile), Cuba, Europe, and the Soviet Union. In 1966 he was awarded the Lenin Peace Prize. Political activism was an important piece of Siqueiros' life. A self-proclaimed Marxist, he was at times both the favorite and the enemy of the Mexican Communist Party. He was exiled twice from Mexico, once in 1932 and again in 1940, following his assassination attempt on Leon Trotsky. (Wikipedia)

        Collection of photos and typed documents.

      Mostly Dammam, 1951-1953, with additional material to 1959.. Collection of 57 black-and-white photographs (30 sized 10 x 13 cm, 25 sized 20 x 25 cm, all on RC paper, and 2 prints on baryta paper, c. 21 x 21 cm). Includes: 67-page small folio typescript "Rules for the Government of the Operating Department" of the Saudi Government Railroad, bound in green cardboard folder. 19-page "Dammam Port Information": rules and rates as governed by the Saudi Government Railroad Tariff No. 2. Also includes 6 pp. of contemporary journalist's typescript for a news item on the new railroad, as well as 37 pp. of project notes and memoranda, some labelled "Confidential", on Aramco's project and budget development for programming, materials, and infrastructure projects for 1959. With two folding maps of Aramco's Senior Staff Camp at Dharan as of May 1958, as well as a 1961 Lebanese-issued International Driver's Licence authorized for use in Saudi Arabia.. Unique, intriguing collection of unknown photographs and typescript material documenting the arrival from America and inauguration of the Saudi Government Railroad trains in late 1951 and the early days of their operation. While not the earliest railway ever to run on the Arabian Peninsula (that honour belongs to the Hejaz Railway, which was built by the Ottomans with German support, ran from Jordan to Medina and operated only between 1908 and 1915), the Saudi Arabian Government Railroad - now the Saudi Railways Organization - was in fact the first modern railway in the region. Installed with U.S. aid after World War II to facilitate the transport of goods to ARAMCO from the ports on the Arabian Gulf coast to warehouses in Dhahran, it quickly extended on to Riyadh, 350 miles away. Construction by the Bechtel Company started in October 1947, and Veteran American railroad engineer James H. Gildea was hired to oversee the project. The photographs show the arrival, by ship, of the streamlined lightweight stainless steel Diesel and passenger cars built by the Budd Company of Philadelphia, their unloading, and the railroad's inauguration by Their Royal Highnesses King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud and his son, Crown Prince Saud bin Abdulaziz. The images document the formal reception by the Royal family, their ride in the special Royal carriage, the Saudi military's guard of honour, and the close interaction between the U.S. operatives and the Saudi dignitaries. The collection forms the archive of (Floyd) Ray Hansen (1901-72), a U.S. technician and military major who worked for the Saudi Railroad from the very beginning and thus had the opportunity to capture on film moments of history otherwise almost entirely undocumented. As Hansen's journalist wife Ida writes in her feature "Doings at Dammam", composed for the Aramco weekly "Arabian Sun and Flare", the 88 mph trains "streak along the tracks like a silver comet and offer the most in luxury and smooth riding comfort with their wide picture windows and comfortably upholstered seats in maroon and blue leather. One car has been set aside for the exclusive use of The Royal Family. This car is beautifully appointed with high back plush seats finished in needle point in a dusty rose and sponge rubber cushions for greater riding comfort [...]" (quoted from the original manuscript, present here). Also included with the set is Hansen's personal, inscribed copy of the Saudi Railroad's "Rules for the Government of the Operating Department", effective as of August 15, 1953, issued by the General Manager, J. H. Gildea. An unpretentious illustrated typescript, the manual contains the full official regulations for timetables, signals, service, inspection, engineering, and operation in general. Along with the additional technical Saudi Railroad and Aramco material, this fascinating trove offers a window into a time of astonishingly rapid transition on the Gulf coast, effected by the close cooperation of two of the century's principal industrial players.

        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. Near fine in the dust jacket which has had some professional restoration to the spine extremities. 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 half morocco clamshell box. 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.

        Hangsaman [Inscribed Association Copy]

      NY|~|: Farrar Straus Young|~|, (1951)|~|. NY: Farrar Straus Young. (1951). Her third book, second novel, and her first book to be published after the acclaim, and controversy, surrounding "The Lottery" -- both the story itself and the collection it gave its name to. Inscribed in the year of publication to William Jay Smith and Barbara Howes: "For Barbara and Bill. Affectionately, Shirley." With the Howes/Smith bookplate now laid in. Smith is a onetime Poet Laureate of the U.S. and both he and Howes, his wife, were National Book Award finalists for their poetry. Howes also edited an avant garde literary magazine, Chimera, in the 1940s, and she produced anthologies of Caribbean literature and Latin American literature that helped bring major authors from those regions to the attention of North American readers and critics. Jackson was living in Vermont at the time of this book's publication, where her husband, writer and literary critic Stanley Edgar Hyman, was a professor at Bennington, which was also Howes' alma mater. The fictional college in Hangsaman is based on Bennington, and the plot is in part based on the true-life disappearance of a Bennington student in 1946. Smith-Howes and Hyman-Jackson were at the time two of the preeminent literary couples in America, making this an excellent literary association copy. Glue residue on the front pastedown where the bookplate had resided; minor foxing to boards, else a near fine copy in a very good, supplied dust jacket with rubbing to the folds and several tiny chips and closed edge tears. Also corner clipped on the upper front flap, with the price ($3.00) stamped in the lower corner. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Lettre autographe signée ("Jean").

      Santo Sospir (Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat), 12. IV. 1951. - 1 page in-petit 4. À Mary Hoeck, traductrice de ses œuvres en anglais: "Je ne vous ai pas envoyé de lettre parce qu'il fallait que j'achève le portrait de Cégeste. Je crois que ce portrait peut vous plaire. J'avais, en outre l'obligation de répondre à und masse de correspondance qui s'empilait sur une table. J'ai vu, hier soir, le film de Sica (Miracle à Milan) - c'est une merveille et j'avais bien raison de dire que le fameux néoréalisme italien était le style même du conte oriental. Le film de Sica en est le triomphe. (Il du reste remporté un triomphe). De Sica a eu la gentillesse de déclarer au public qui n'aurait jamais osé faire ce film sans les miens - et il m'a embrasse sous la mitraille des photographes. Lorsqu'un homme triomphe, cette attitude est assez rare. Asquith aussi a été très élégant. Comme les journalistes lui disaient 'Vous êtes le Cocteau d'Agleterre' (sic) il a répondu: [']Hélas - je voudrais bien avoir ses dons'. Voilà la chronique de Cannes.

        Les Faits mystérieux de l’Île-Bouchard. Et documents originaux divers

      Gilbert-Clarey, Tours 1951 - Brochure agrafée originale de 1951, 44pp. éditions Gibert-Clarey, Tours, non signée mais rédigée par Monseigneur Robert Fiot sur les apparitions de la Vierge Marie à l'Île-Bouchard en 1947, + des photographies originales, des cartes postales, un tapuscrit de XIII feuillets 21x27cm (non signé) et un ensemble de lettres d’un éditeur souhaitant publier le récit des apparitions. Dans « Les Apparitions de l’Île-Bouchard : documents authentiques » (Editions de l’Emmanuel, 2002, page 14), B. Peyrous et E. Béranger écrivent : « Nous y retrouvons les caractéristiques habituelles de l’action de Dieu : une situation délicate et même impossible à gérer, à vue humaine, des moyens pauvres, un résultat imprévisible, le tout entouré d’une immense tendresse du Ciel. Au moment où la France faillit se précipiter dans une guerre civile que tout le monde prévoyait imminente et à laquelle on se préparait de part et d’autre, Marie apparut, dans un village de Touraine, à quatre petites filles, leur demanda la prière des enfants pour la France, puis manifesta sa joie et sa louange. Les apparitions durèrent du lundi 8 décembre au dimanche 14. L’Eglise, toujours prudente, encouragea de plus en plus le pèlerinage, et le 8 décembre 2001, le reconnut comme pèlerinage officiel du diocèse du Tours, susceptible d’un culte public. » De fait, ce n’est que le 22 août 1951 que les autorités diocésaines ont délivré l’imprimatur pour la publication de la première brochure sur les apparitions, celle de ce lot, rédigée par Monseigneur Fiot, recueillant les fonds déjà établis par le chanoine Clovis Ségelle au moment des apparitions, puis par l’abbé Souillet qui enquêta dès la fin de 1947, mais procédant lui-même à de nombreux interrogatoires. Après des notes préliminaires de présentation des lieux et des petites filles, le texte propose une chronologie détaillée des faits. Cette brochure fut maintes fois rééditée. Il s’agit ici de l’édition originale sous couverture vert pâle imprimée en noir. La correspondance, entre le 21 novembre 1948 et le 24 janvier 1951 est une documentation intéressante montrant les efforts vains d’un éditeur parisien, Georges Bénard, pour arracher l’imprimatur du diocèse pour son projet d’éditer un opuscule sur les apparitions. Géorges Bénard, des éditions Rivarol, était notamment connu pour avoir commis en 1935 un violent pamphlet anti-parlementaire (Les Pourritures terrestres : Corrupteurs et assassins). Il s’entretient avec un certain A. Caillé, qui est en relation avec le doyen Ségelle, pour obtenir l’autorisation de publication. En désespoir de cause, il rédige un long courrier au Monseigeur de l’archevêché de Tours (ici son brouillon manuscrit au crayon). Il justifie son intérêt pour les apparitions et sa volonté de ne faire aucun commentaire et de simplement relater les faits, offrant les droits d’auteur et tous les bénéfices au diocèse. Il termine sa prose par ce vœu : « Je m’excuse de ce long épitre, mais je désirerai tant contribuer à faire plaisir à la Sainte Vierge, à laquelle je dois beaucoup, que j’ai pris l’audace de vous importuner. ». Sur papier à en-tête de l’Archevêché de Tours, la réponse reste négative, et un courrier manuscrit d’A. Caillé relate l’irritation que le doyen Ségelle a éprouvé en apprenant l’initiative de Bénard. Dans la documentation, on trouve aussi un courrier manuscrit de l’une des trois enfants ayant vu la Vierge, Jacqueline Aubry, probablement adressé à Mme Bénard, 3 cartes postales de l’église Saint-Gilles, 5 photos personnelles 6,5x9cm dont deux portraits de Jacqueline Aubry sur la place du village et une photo 9x14cm de la même avec 3 autres fillettes non identifiées. Le tapuscrit est vraisemblablement le récit des apparitions rédigé par Georges Bénard. + une coupure de presse de juillet 1948 sur une « miraculée de l’île-Bouchard ». C’est un ensemble passionnant, montrant la prudence de l’église sur les apparitions. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Catcher in the Rye

      Boston: Little, Brown. 1951. Salinger's classic first book, signed by the author: "17 Dec. 1953/ Hanover/ with all good wishes/ J.D. Salinger." Now bound in full red morocco, this copy was once in the stacks of the Dartmouth College Library, which Salinger made a home of over the course of at least four decades, from the early 1950s through the 1980s. Signed without fanfare (or perhaps even notice) in 1953 and returned to the stacks and into circulation, where students contributed notations to the text, sometimes "improving" the writing or, in one case, enthusiastically endorsing a passage ("go! go!"). Prior to the current morocco binding, the book had been removed from its original binding and rebound in standard library buckram, at which point the book was trimmed at the top and bottom, so the text block is now shorter than that of a typical first edition and rounded, but even that binding did not withstand the use of its readership, and the copy was discarded by the library ("discard" stamp present) without acknowledgment of that day in 1953 when a young author took his own creation from the shelf of his local haunt, acknowledged it as his own, and returned it to the world. There then followed such a history of un-selfconscious reading in this book that it is impossible not to think of Salinger's dedication in his later book, Raise High the Roof Beam, in which, after a decade of dodging celebrity seekers, he wrote: "If there is an amateur reader still left in the world -- or anybody who just reads and runs -- I ask him or her, with untellable affection and gratitude, to split the dedication of this book four ways with my wife and children." A heartwarming copy of one of the true rarities of 20th century American literature. . First Edition. Hardcover.
