        BEAT THE DEVIL.

      Philadelphia:: J. B. Lippincott Company,. (1951).. 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. .

        The Cruel Sea. [First Book Society Edition]. IN FULL MOROCCO

      Cassell,, [1951]. 8vo., First Edition thus, with double-page map; handsomely bound in navy blue full morocco, sides with frame border, back with raised bands, second compartment lettered in gilt, all other compartments tooled in gilt, fore-edges lightly mottled else a most attractive copy ideal as a gift or for presentation. This edition was published simultaneously (September 1951) with the first edition. It is now scarce in its own right. The finest novel of the Royal Navy in WWII and a maritime classic. The story, based upon the author's own experiences, formed the basis of Charles Frend's notable feature film starring Jack Hawkins in one of his most memorable roles. So accurate is its depiction of the Battle of the Atlantic that it is one of the very few works of fiction admitted by Law to his standard bibliography The Royal Navy in World War Two. Law, 1865 (recording the first edition).

        Bestie del 500

      Firenze: Vallechi Editore, 1951. This is an about very good hardcover copy in a good dust jacket. The jacket front and back panels are present, but spine of jacket mostly perished. The top edges of both panels chipped, the front more heavily. Very clean inside, however the paper is very acidic and the edges of the text pages have browned. Text in Italian. The book is illustrated with 21 original serigraphs by Mino Maccari. These are printed on a lighter, better quality paper. The colors are fesh and bright. Palazzeschi's fabulous creatures are playfully interpreted by Maccari, who also used two of the decorations for the front and back panel of the dust jacket. Two different illustrations have been applied directly to the paper-covered boards. There is one brief inscription in Italian from the period on the front endpaper. The headpieces and vignettes in black & white are also by Maccari. 11" high X 8" wide, 164 pages. . Hard Cover. Very Good/Good.

The albums are a modern 'Liber Amicorum' comprising many autographic sentiments and letters dedicated to Richard O'Hagen, a Canadian diplomat with the Military Mission and clearly a music lover by his friends Walter and Gisela Stoll [walter was a singer]. A wealth of material almost all of it in German. Over some 60 pages with singers and others signing to the pages and also often including photos and postcards, including; an autograph letter from the conductor Hans Von Benda [1888-1972] Artistic Director of the Berlin Philharmonic from 1936 - 1939; a good many letters typed, signed from Heinrich Pflanzel [1903-1978] Austrian opera singer, as well as signed photos and sentiments; Walter Grossmann [bass], signed postcard and sentiment; Gustel Grossmann Autograph Musical Quotation (Wagner) and sentiment; Mathieu Ahlersmeyer [1896- 1979] German baritone , signed postcard; a charming and well-executed drawing and poem by a 'Lydia Schone'; Wolf Voelker, opera director; 3 typed letters signed and photograph - unsigned - of Walter Felsenstein [1901-1975] Austrian opera director and founder of the Berlin Komische Oper company in 1947; Alfred Hilgert, singer, several signed postcards one tagged 'Meistersinger 1948'; Josef Greindl [1912-1993] bass famous for his Wagnerian roles, sentiment and signed postcard; Ludwig Suthaus [1906-1971] heldentenor [three autographs, two to album pages and one signed postcard]; Margarethe Klose [1899 -1968] mezzo soprano and a regular at Bayreuth [signed typed note and signed photograph]; Rudolf Schock [1915-1986] German tenor and film actor signed sentiment; Gerhard Frei [1911-1989] baritone, signed sentiment and signed postcard; Irmgard Armgart [1908-1982] German soprano, signed sentiment; Wilhelm Walter Dicks, baritone, signed sentiment; Wieland and Wolfgang Wagner [signature to page and signed postcard respectively] co-directors of the Bayreuth Festival Theatre; Elfriede Trotschel [1913-1958] German soprano, signed sentiment to page; Elisabeth Schwarzkopf [1915-2006] German soprano signed to album page 'Bayreuth 1951'; Gerhard Unger [ 1916-2011] lyric tenor, signed to album page 'Bayreuth 1951'; Paul Kuen [1910-1997] tenor who appeared in Wagner & Bernd Aldenhoff [1908-1959] heldentenor both signed to page; Sigurd Bjorling [1907-1983] Swedish tenor signed to page; Marthe Modl [1912-2001] one of the great postwar Wagnerian sopranos, signed to page; Astrid Varnay [1918-2006] Wagnerian soprano signed to page; Gunther Treptow [1907-1981] tenor famous for Wagnerian roles; Frederick Dalberg [1907-1988] bass, signature to album page 'Bayreuth 1951'; Hans Hopf [1916-1993] leading postwar Wagnerian heldentenor, signature to page 'Bayreuth 1951'; Erich Kunz [1909-1995] Austrian baritone & Otto Edelmann [1917-2003] Austrian bass signatures to album page; Hans Renmar [1895-1961] Austrian baritone, signed photograph; Diana Eustrati [1916 ] Greek mezzo, sentiment signed to album page; Ferenc Fricsay [1914-1963] Hungarian conductor, 2 signed Christmas cards, signed album page & signed photograph; Annalies Kupper [1906-1987] German soprano signed postcard and album page with sentiment; Kathe Dorsch [1890-1957] German actress & Walter Franck [1896-1961] German actor sentiments signed to album page; Silvia Kind [1907-2002] postcard with message, signed. The second album is also dedicated by Walter and Gisela Stoll and is less full but contains letters and notes [both autograph and typewritten] of Boleslaw Barlog [1906-1999] stage, film and opera director who was at the centre of the revival of post war cultural life of Berlin; Michael Bohnen [1887-1965] German bass-baritone, and Intendant of the Stadtischen Oper Berlin until dubious accusations of a Nazi past caused him to lose his post [two signed photos, one in role; Walter Franck [1896-1961] German stage and film actor, who played the mad scientist in the German science fiction film Master of the World (1934) signed photograph; Donald Bell [1934-] Canadian bass baritone [signed postcard]; Gerhard Stolz [1926-1979] tenor best known for his Wagnerian roles, postcard signed verso.

There are also some menus, newspaper clippings, programmes etc. All in all some 80 odd signed letters, postcards, album pages by some of the leading and supporting singers and conductors of the German opera theatre in the early 1950's. A terrific archive of a period when Germany was getting back on its cultural feet in the post war, Cold War era. The first album is in VG order with decorative cover and the second, the cover is detached at spine but still holding. The vast majority of postcards and photographs in both albums are in corner mounts and removeable and all are in VG condition. Put together with care and affection for a man who was clearly a lover of opera. £495

        Lettre autographe signée à un collectionneur

      - 2 pages, encre bleue, un feuillet de 210 x 270 mm. Chemise demi-chagrin noir. LONGUE LETTRE AUTOGRAPHE DE L'ARTISTE A UN COLLECTIONNEUR, Richard, datée du 11 mars 1951 :"Mon cher Richard, de nouveau je suis en retard ! Avant tout : merci du mandant récent qui était venu me sauver d'un de mes perpétuels ennuis ! Mais nous n'avons pas encore fixé la contre-partie de cela. Il sera préférable que vous choisissiez sur place, vous-même (étant donné que vous aurez bientôt déjà une véritable collection, on pourrait penser à une des grandes photos de la poupée qui ont survécues à la guerre etc.) J'ai posté hier à l'adresse indiquée la gouache et les deux ex. de l'album. Bousculé et énervé, je n'avais même pas le temps de faire un passepartout pour la gouache pour vous la présenter un peu plus convenablement. En plus j'aurais bien voulu ajouter une des lithos récentes. Mais elles sont tirées sur grandes marges et je ne savais pas comment joindre cette très grande feuille au paquet. Je vous en enverrai une quand j'aurais un rouleau en carton. L'encadreur (Martin) ne m'a pas encore fait signe. Je vais lui téléphoner demain. Inutile de dire que je me débats toujours et encore dans les terreurs quotidiennes. Le hasard voulait que j'ai vendu par-ici et par-là une litho (la toute première que vous possédez) et dont il me restait quelques épreuves. Mais tout cela permet juste de survivre péniblement. Joé Bousquet avait une fois l'idée suivante : Il faudrait trouver une dizaine d'amis-collectionneurs, dont chacun me verserait 5000 francs par mois pendant 6 à 8 mois ayant droit, par cela, à un tableau de format moyen qu'il choisira. Mais comment organiser cela ? Le malheur est que cet album de lithos - travail terrible - ne me donne absolument rien à vivre, pour le temps de son élaboration. Une autre chose reste dans un tiroir de mes soucis : c'est l?Anatomie de l'inconscient physique - ou l?Anatomie de l'image ! Il me faudrait trois mois de paix pour le terminer (texte et dessins) c.a.d. un miracle. Sans valeur matérielle pour moi, la parution de cet ouvrage serait de la plus haute importance dans le sens de mon existence. Vous ai-je dit que de Caso a commencé à extraire d'une partie de ma correspondance des choses d'intérêt poétique-objectif. On verra bien ce que cela donne. Et si les autres voudraient bien faire le même travail. Ecrivez-moi ! Est-ce que votre amie passera me voir à Paris ? Avez-vous une épreuve d'essai de la litho : "L'homme qui se dépouille de l'image d'une femme" ? Amicalement à vous. Hans Bellmer."

        The Catcher in the Rye

      Little, Brown & Co 1951 - One of the most significant works of 20th century fiction – a true classic. Fine in Near Fine first issue jacket. ******* The book has minor spots to the top edge, otherwise fine. The jacket is truly great, but let me walk through the minor faults first – a modicum of chipping to the spine head, two corners, and along a bit of the top front panel, a tiny closed tear at the upper front panel, a bit rubbed at the folds. And perhaps most modest general patina of age endemic to all objects on Earth that haven’t been hermetically sealed. That about covers it. There is no fading to the spine or really elsewhere for that matter. Many other booksellers would probably call this an “else Fine” jacket, but my aim for brutal and probably self-injurious accuracy beckons me to stay with Near Fine. Now one can take a jeweler’s eye to any jacket and find any number of faults, but make no mistake - this is a fresh copy and priced to make your dream of owning this classic a reality. Don’t forego buying a new car or paying your child’s college tuition in order to buy an equal copy for much more. ****** “I'd say its enduring appeal is not due to the fact that Salinger was an expert writer but due to the universality of Holden's emotions and expressions Books that are termed great are termed so, not because they have fantastic plots or unique literary devices but are in fact, universal and timeless in the feelings they evoke within us.” (Mona) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Catcher in the Rye

      Little, Brown & Co, 1951 One of the most significant works of 20th century fiction – a true classic. Fine in Near Fine first issue jacket. The book has minor spots to the top edge, otherwise fine. The jacket is truly great, but let me walk through the minor faults first – a modicum of chipping to the spine head, two corners, and along a bit of the top front panel, a tiny closed tear at the upper front panel, a bit rubbed at the folds. And perhaps most modest general patina of age endemic to all objects on Earth that haven't been hermetically sealed. That about covers it. There is no fading to the spine or really elsewhere for that matter. Many other booksellers would probably call this an "else Fine" jacket, but my aim for brutal and probably self-injurious accuracy beckons me to stay with Near Fine. Now one can take a jeweler's eye to any jacket and find any number of faults, but make no mistake - this is a fresh copy and priced to make your dream of owning this classic a reality. Don't forego buying a new car or paying your child's college tuition in order to buy an equal copy for much more. "I'd say its enduring appeal is not due to the fact that Salinger was an expert writer but due to the universality of Holden's emotions and expressions…Books that are termed great are termed so, not because they have fantastic plots or unique literary devices but are in fact, universal and timeless in the feelings they evoke within us." (Mona)

        End of the Affair, The

      London William Heinemann 1951 First Issue, without the divisional numeral (and thus chapter division) of Book 2, VIII. 8vo: [6],237,[1]pp. Publisher's grey cloth, spine lettered in gilt, biege end papers, grey and white price-clipped typographic dust jacket. About Fine (mild lightening to spine); about Fine jacket (several miniscule closed tears). A most attractive copy. Wobbe A27a Fine- In the introduction to this novel in Introductions to Three Novels, Greene reminds the reader that The End of the Affair was one of his first attempts to use the first person. He also reports that Great Expectations and The Good Soldier were deeply influential in the novel's development. "From a technical standpoint, [The End of the Affair] is a masterful blend of diary entries, letters, and shifting viewpoints, yet from a religious standpoint, it is the most spiritually challenging record of obsessive jealousy and hate that Greene ever produced . . . The fourth of Greene's explicitly Catholic novels, [it] in fact concerns a love triangle. It is also a kind of detective story, in which the mysterious third party, of whom Bendrix is so jealous, proves to be spiritual. Greene dedicated the novel to 'C.' [Lady Catherine Walston], with whom he was then having an affair."
