Amid the fever of the 1920s and the first chill of the 1930s, Nick Jenkins and his friends confront sex, society, business, and art. In the second volume they move to London in a whirl of marriage and adulteries, fashions and frivolities, personal triumphs and failures. These books "provide an unsurpassed picture, at once gay and melancholy, of social and artistic life in Britain between the wars" (Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.). Listed on Modern Library's 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century. Time magazine included the novel in its100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005.

Carter was greatly involved in correcting the proofs of this catalogue and was also the author of the TLS review. There is much material laid-in: 1. A seven-page typewritten "Notes and Queries" by Carter sent to Sadleir while the catalogue was in proof, making many detailed comments and queries. 2. A seven-page typewritten reply from Sadleir, similarly detailed. 3. The remains of two dust-jackets with many comments by Carter. 4. Carter's TLS review (a press cutting). 5. Michael Sadleir's A.L.s., 2 pages, 13th April 1951, thanking Carter for his warm review of this book. 6.

Sadleir, the son of Michael, regarding an augmented reissue. 8. Carter has inserted correspondence and clippings throughout the catalogue at the relevant openings. But what is really wonderful about this copy and makes it so special are the large number of notes, corrections, additions, and deletions throughout which Carter has made. Fine set with Carter's bookplate. .

        Economics: An Introductory Analysis

      New York: McGraw Hill, 1951. First printing of the second edition, published three years after the first edition. Octavo, original cloth. Name on the front endpaper, else near fine in a very good dust jacket. Signed by the author on the title page, "Paul A. Samuelson MIT". Its fundamental impact on the opinions and approaches of today's most influential economists is extraordinary. Upon publication this text immediately became the authority for the principles of economics courses. The book continues to be the standard-bearer for principles courses, and continues to be a clear, accurate, and interesting introduction to modern economics principles. The New York Times considered Samuelson to be the "foremost academic economist of the 20th century".Paul Samuelson is one of the developers of both neo-Keynesian and neoclassical economics, the latter of which still dominates mainstream economics. He was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for having written considerable parts of economic theory, and he is one of the ten Nobel Prize winning economists still signing the Economist's statement opposing the Bush tax cuts. One of Samuelson's many novel contributions was that he generalized and applied mathematical methods developed for the study of thermodynamics to the field of economics. His inspiration for doing so came, in part, from his mentor, polymath Edwin Bisdwell Wilson who was a former Yale student of the founder of chemical thermodynamics, Willard Gibbs. Samuelson, therefore, is a successful example of interdisciplinarity, and he combined these ideas in his magnum opus Foundations of Economic Analysis (1947).

According to Asimov, the premise was based on ideas set forth in Edward Gibbon's History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, and was invented spontaneously on his way to meet with editor John W. Campbell, with whom he developed the concept. "The first four stories were collected, along with a new story taking place before the others, in a single volume published by Gnome Press in 1951 as Foundation. The remainder of the stories were published in pairs by Gnome as Foundation and Empire (1952) and Second Foundation (1953), resulting in the "Foundation Trilogy", as the series was known for decades" (Halmad, Spectra). The Foundation Trilogy was given a Hugo Award for the "Best All-Time Series" in 1966.

        Hangsaman [Inscribed Association Copy]

      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.

        Typed Letter Signed on "Supreme Court" letterhead

      Washington, D.C., 1951. unbound. Outstanding typed letter signed, 1 page, 4to, 10.5 x 8 inches, on "Supreme Court of the United States" letterhead, Washington, D.C., March 31, 1951. Written to powerful New York attorney and power broker Frederick R. Coudert, on the correct method of presenting argument before the Supreme Court and coming to the defense of Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. In part: "How right you are that counsel have no business here unless they are willing to engage in the Socratic method which, no one knows better than you, has been traditional with this Court. The beastly habit of too many counsel in reading their arguments, and too often reading from their briefs, makes me wonder if they know that the printing press has been invented. The whole point of oral argument is to bring to bear the force of personality and to reach the mind of the Court by a different route and through a different impact than the brief affords...You who knew Mr. Justice Holmes well must be amused, though perhaps saddened, by the fantastic attacks that are now made, largely of Jesuit source, whereby that good and tender man is charged with being the fountainhead of totalitarianism. I am sure were he here now he would say of these attacks, as of some others against him in his lifetime, that they deserve "intelligent neglect." Note: One week before this letter was written, Westbrook Pegler used his syndicated column to announce to the world that "Holmes was a cynical and senile brutalitarian," "the God of an evil cult," a "brutal old faker," and that he "had no morals than a pig" -- all this by direct pipe-line, through the Harvard Law Review and Felix Frankfurter. [From: Justice Holmes and his Heckler, Yale Law Journal, 1951, by Fred Rodell]. Natural folds; near fine condition. Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court (1939 - 1962); appointed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

        God and Man at Yale: The Superstitions of "Academic Freedom"

      Chicago: Henry Regnery Company, 1951. First edition of the author's first book and seminal work. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket that shows some light wear. Inscribed by the author, "For Senator Owen Brewster with best wishes and admiration William F. Buckley." The recipient served in the United States Senate from 1941 to 1952, and was also governor for the State of Maine. Also laid in is a blank letterhead from the United States Senate Comittee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, where Brewster served on. A very sharp copy, with a nice association. William F. Buckley's God Man at Yale "concludes that the values inculcated at Yale 'are agnostic as to religion, interventionist and Keynesian as to economics, and collectivist as applied to the relation of the individual to society and government… A like case could be made out against the economics teaching in many other leading American universities today" (Hazlitt, The Free Man's Library, 48).

        The Catcher in the Rye

      Little, Brown|~| 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.

"David Ricardo is without doubt the greatest representative of classical political economy. He carried the work begun by Adam Smith to the farthest point possible… Ricardo, writing 50 years later than Smith, showed a greater insight into the working of the economic system… In the opinion of his own contemporaries at home and abroad, Ricardo was acknowledged the leader of the science… His most important work is On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, first published in 1817" (Roll, History of Economic Thought, 155-6).

        The War Speeches of the Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill, three volume set

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1951. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Near fine. This is a full, first edition, first printing set of the three-volume "definitive" edition of Churchill's war speeches. During his long public life, Winston Churchill played many roles worthy of historical note - member of Parliament for more than half a century, distinguished soldier and war correspondent, author of scores of books, ardent social reformer, combative cold warrior, Nobel Prize winner. But more than anything else, it was Winston Churchill's leadership during the Second World War that made him a preeminent historical figure. His soaring and defiant oratory sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world during the greatest war the world has ever known. Of Churchill, Edward R. Murrow said: "He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle." Between 1941 and 1946, Churchill's war speeches were published in seven individual volumes. In 1952, during Churchill's second premiership, the publisher reissued the War Speeches as a new, three-volume edition. This edition is, in many ways, superior to the original seven wartime editions in both aesthetics and content. Gone is the cheap economy paper of the wartime editions. The binding is a heavy navy cloth with attractive, uniform dust jackets. Further, the books measure a substantial 10 x 6.25 inches. New speeches are added, as is a very helpful index. Some of the original speeches considered peripheral are eliminated while others are retitled and chronological dates are replaced with brief transitional or introductory notes. These sets have become quite scarce in the original dust jackets. Here is a very good plus first printing set in near-fine first printing dust jackets. The notable feature of this set is bright and entirely complete dust jackets with excellent shelf appearance owing to dust jacket spines that show absolutely no toning - a rarity. The jacket spines retain bright and distinctly pale yellow color, rather than the tan color to which these jackets are almost inevitably sunned. The dust jackets are unclipped, retaining the original front flap pricing, and show only fractional wear at the spine heads. The dust jackets do show modest overall spotting, heaviest at the flap folds, but only a few small spots show on lovely, bright dust jacket spines. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. The books beneath are in very good plus condition. The navy blue cloth bindings are square and tight with bright spine gilt, sharp corners, and virtually no wear. The contents are bright and crisp with no previous ownership marks. The only thing preventing this set from being fine is spotting. Internally, spotting is confined to just the endpapers. We note light spotting to the Volume I & II edges, heavier spotting to the Volume III fore and top edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A263.1(I-III).a, Woods/ICS A136(a.1), Langworth p.303.
