        Weather Sayings

      The Backwoods Press 1951 - Limited to 235 copies (200 unsigned and 35 signed -- this is unsigned). Includes wood engravings by J. J. Lankes. Slim hardcover is very good plus with shelfwear and lightly bumped corners. There is no dust jacket (I don't know if it was issued with one). A nice example of a very scarce book.

        Captain Video No. 1 / . . . and the Secret of Sun City / A Monthly Publication / 36 Page Comic / Directly from Television! / The Famous Dumont Television Star / Greatest Adventure Hero of Them All! / In a Comic magazine of His Own

      A Fawcett Production / British Edition by L. Miller & Son Ltd., London 1951 - This is Captain Video No. 1, "The Secret of Sun City . . . Directly from Television!" copyright 1950 by Fawcett Publications Inc, in the U.S., but this is the U.K. edition, "published & distributed by L. Miller & Son, Ltd.," London. Notable as one of the few British comic books of the era to feature color on the inside pages, though in truth only 15 of the interior pages here are in color -- each color double-spread seems to alternate with a pair of B&W pages -- and THAT color is a bit limited, apparently created by applying red and blue screens but NOT full, four-ink process color. A short-lived title, it appears only six numbers were issued. Original cover price "9d." (It would drop to 6d for the later, mostly B&W issues.) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      [ENGLISH: - - - Inscribed by the author - Nobel Prize winner in 1951 - to Agne Beijer, "med tack och hälsning från Pär Lagerkvist". Recent full morocco (reliure a cru) by Per-Anders Hübner, applications in two colours, wrappers bound in (lightly soiled), in a fitted Solander box. First edition. Presentation copies of this book (The Dwarf), one of Lagerkvist's most important novels, are extremely rare.] - Med dedikation till museimannen, teaterrecensenten m.m. Agne Beijer, "med tack och hälsning från Pär Lagerkvist". Skinnband (reliure a cru) av Per-Anders Hübner, påläggningar i olikfärgat skinn, omslagen medbundna (lätt smutsade), kassett med titeltryck. Stockholm, Albert Bonniers förlag, 1944. 8:o. 282 s. Trots mer än 20 års aktivt och uppmärksamt samlande för den Lagerkvistkatalog jag utgav 2013, huvudsakligen med dedikationsexemplar, brev, korrektur och liknande, lyckades jag aldrig hitta något dedikationsexemplar av ett av Lagerkvists tyngst vägande och mest välkända verk - Dvärgen. Härmed alltså ett litet supplement.

        Original architectural drawing, signed and inscribed, "For Alfred Eisenstaedt", London, November 14, 1951

      1951. 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. This drawing, presented to the photographer,was done at an interesting time: Casson, an architect who had spent the war in the Camouflage Service had become Architecture Director for the successful 1951 Festival of Britain, and on the date of this drawing was only six weeks away from receiving a knighthood for his services. 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.
