      Pen and ink on paper. 7-3/4 x 5-1/2 inches. Fine. Pen and ink on paper. 7-3/4 x 5-1/2 inches. Architectural Drawing by Hugh Casson to Photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt.

He subsequently became, his biographer states, "the best known architect in Britain", creating a number of prominent buildings, from the Elephant House at the London Zoo to an ambitious series of buildings for Cambridge University. He was elected President of the Royal Academy, and was a noted writer and television spokesman for architecture and the arts.

        Love In A Dry Season.

      The Dial Press, New York 1951 - First edition of Foote's third novel which anticipates much of the subject matter of his monumental Civil War trilogy. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Dennis Cross from Shelby Foote 13 Oct 90." The recipient was a friend of Foote's. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Love in a Dry Season describes an erotic and economic triangle, in which two wealthy and fantastically unhappy Mississippi families, the Barcrofts and the Carrutherses, are joined by an open-faced fortune hunter from the North, a man whose ruthlessness is matched only by his inability to understand the people he tries to exploit and his fatal incomprehension of the passions he so casually ignites. Combining a flawless sense of place with a Faulknerian command of the grotesque, Foote's novel turns a small cotton town into a sexual battleground as fatal as Vicksburg or Shiloh, and one where strategy is no match for instinct and tradition.

        BEAT THE DEVIL.

      J. B. Lippincott Company, (1951)., Philadelphia: - First edition. A REVIEW COPY with slip laid in. Helvick was the pseudonym of Claud Cockburn, a noted British radical journalist. Born in Peking, China, in 1904, he was the scion of an aristocratic family--one of his ancestors was the British commander who ordered the burning of the White House during the War of 1812 and his cousin was the novelist Evelyn Waugh. The book was made into a 1953 film directed by John Huston, with the screenplay by Huston and Truman Capote, and starring Humphrey Bogart, Jennifer Jones and Gina Lollobrigida. Huston intended it to be a tongue-in-cheek spoof of "The Maltese Falcon" (1941), also directed by Huston, and other films of Film Noir-style that Huston himself had pioneered (Wikipedia). Near fine with light rubbing to the cover, light bump to top front cover, and faint offset to the endpapers. In a dust jacket which is about an eighth-inch short. We've informed that at least one other copy with a little shorter jacket has been cataloged, so perhaps publisher produced (Graham Gateson reported cataloged by Bauman Books) Also minor edge rubbing and soiling, and a few shallow chips to the spine ends and corners. Cover art still clear and bright. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
