        Invisible Man

      New York: Random House, 1952 - First Edition. A very good copy in a good dust jacket. With the ownership signature of novelist Anton Myrer. Laid into this copy is a typed note (ÓDear TonyÓ) on Random House letterhead from editor Albert Erskine (signing in ink as ÒAlbertÓ) sending him an advance copy of this book (clearly this copy), praising the novel and seeking his opinion. Erskine was an editor, likely editing MyrerÕs first book, published the previous year by Random House.

      Stuttgart, DVA, (1952). (1. Aufl.) 75 (+ 4 nicht paginierte) S. [S. 76 = letzte Textseite; S. 77 = weiß; S. 78 u. 79 = Inhalt] Schwarze OLwd. (Einband Peter Schneidler) mit goldgeprägt. Titel a. Deckel u. Rücken. OU. Erstausgabe (WG 8; Glenn B 02) mit eigenh. vierzeiliger WIDMUNG a. Vortitel über die Schwierigkeit des Übersetzens: \"à Madame Renée Lang, / en essayant de rejoindre ces mots / [während ich versuche, diese Worte zusammenzubringen] Paul Celan / Paris, mars [März] 1953.\" - // - Die Widmung für die französische Rilke-Forscherin, Literaturhistorikerin und Übersetzerin Renée Lang steht in Zusammenhang mit Ihrem Rilke - Buch: \"Rainer Maria Rilke. André Gide: Correspondance 1909-1926\", das 1952 in Paris, bei Correa, mit Einleitung und Kommentaren von ihr erschienen war. - Dieser Briefwechsel sollte wohl zunächst von Paul Celan ins Deutsche übersetzt werden. - In einem Brief (Paris, 27. August 1954) an Renée Lang schreibt Celan, er habe ihr Buch an die Deutschen Verlagsanstalt (DVA) zurückgegeben, da er Rilkes Sprache nicht entsprechend übersetzen könne: \"This language can\'t simply be translated, it must be translocated.\" (Glenn: F 09). - Diese strenge Auffassung Celans, der selbst Übersetzer von Lyrik aus und Dichter in vielen Sprachen war, erinnert an die These Heideggers, ein Übersetzer müsse fähig sein, gleichsam den kulturellen Strom, der zwei Sprachen trennt, zu überqueren. - Die deutsche Ausgabe des von Renée Lang kommentierten Buches \"Rainer Maria Rilke. André Gide. Briefwechsel 1909-1926\" erschien schließlich 1957 in der Übertragung von Wolfgang A. Peters bei der DVA und dem Insel Verlag (Sarkowski 1319). -Celans ursprünglich in Deutsch geschriebener Brief vom 27. August 1954, der im Zusammenhang mit unserem Widmungsexemplar steht, wurde ins Englische übersetzt und herausgeben [in KOPIE DABEI] von Jerry Glenn in \"Three Letters\" [von Paul Celan] In: A Special Section on Paul Celan. In: Sulfur (Los Angeles) Nr. 11. 1984. (S. 30 f.). Jerry Glenn (Prof. emeritus der Univ. of Cincinnati) ist Autor von \"Paul Celan. Eine Bibliographie\" (Wiesbaden 1989). - DABEI: Masch. Brief mit eigenh. U. (Southgate, 9. VII. 2016) von Jerry Glenn, in dem er beschreibt, wie der Kontakt zu Renée Lang entstand und dass Paul Celans Brief und dieses Widmungsexemplar in Zusammenhang stehen.Renée Lang ist Autorin weiterer Bücher über Rilke und Gide. 1953 erschien ihr Buch \"André Gide und der deutsche Geist\" bei der DVA und 1956 gab sie \"Rainer Maria Rilke: Lettres Milanaises 1921-1926\" heraus, die sie im Berner Rilke-Archiv entdeckt hatte. -Der Kunststoff - Umschlag (mit Fehlstellen) ist mit einem Text von Karl Schwedhelm (Süddt. Rundfunk) über Celans damals noch wenig bekannte Lyrik bedruckt. Das Buch mit der so interessanten Widmung ist bestens erhalten.

        The Sword of Honour Trilogy. Men at Arms; Officers and Gentlemen; Unconditional Surrender.

      1952-1961 1952 - Three volumes. First editions. 8vo., original cloth, dust jackets, preserved in a folding box. London, Chapman & Hall. Inscribed by the author to Ronald Knox in the second volume, Officers and Gentlemen: ?For Ronnie with homage from Evelyn.? Waugh and Knox became friends when Waugh converted to Roman Catholicism in 1930: Knox, who combined a Church career as RC chaplain at the University of Oxford with the authorship of detective novels, was almost as celebrated a prose stylist as Waugh. Like Waugh he was a convert, and like Waugh he came from a bourgeois background but was happiest among the aristocracy. Waugh was with him when he died and was his literary executor, the duties of which included his biography, published in 1959: ?Ronnie's death has transformed my life. Instead of sitting about bored and idle, I am busy all day long both writing his life and managing his affairs. Ronnie's close business associates are all scrupulous dotards who write to me by every post. That part is a fiendish nuisance but I am absolutely absorbed in the biography.? A near fine set, spines just a little faded, some light water staining to the cloth of the inscribed volume: the jacket to that volume seemingly supplied. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The War Speeches of the Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill, formerly owned by "one of America's premier diplomats" and the only U.S. Ambassador to Britain to serve three different U.S. presidents in the post.

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1952. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is the first edition, first printing of the three-volume "definitive" edition of Churchill's war speeches, with noteworthy provenance, having been owned by ?one of America?s premier diplomats? and the only U.S. Ambassador to Britain to hold his post under three different presidents. (ANB) 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, painter. But his enduring preeminence owes most to his indispensable leadership during the Second World War, when his soaring and defiant oratory sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world. 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 each 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. The sole previous ownership marks are the illustrated bookplates of ?Staunton Hill? bearing the name ?Bruce? affixed to each front pastedown. Staunton Hill is an 1848 Gothic Revival estate in Brookneal, Virginia, designed by architect John Evan Johnson and built for one-time Virginia state senator Charles Bruce, whose son was a U.S. Senator and whose grandson, the former owner of this set, served in Europe during the Second World War and became ?one of America?s premier diplomats?. (ANB) It was David Kirkpatrick Este Bruce (1898-1977) who restored Staunton Hill before passing it on to his children. Bruce is the only American to have served as Ambassador to France, the Republic of Germany, and the United Kingdom. He helped with implementation of the Marshall Plan, was recruited to help set up the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner of the CIA, and later became the first U.S. liaison officer to China and a NATO ambassador. Bruce was appointed U.S. Ambassador to London by President Kennedy and held the post for a record eight years, serving three different presidents. As U.S. Ambassador to Britain, Bruce held ?immense influence with both Conservative and Labor governments and was popular with the British public as well.? Bruce was serving in London when Churchill was gifted with honorary United States citizenship by the U.S. Congress and President Kennedy. Bruce?s ?record of six major ambassadorial assignments under six presidents will surely never be equaled. He was a negotiator and conciliator of legendary skill, a draftsman of brilliantly acute reports, and a consummate host.? (ANB) This first edition, first printing, three-volume set is very good in good dust jackets, showing some age and wear, but nonetheless sound. The blue cloth bindings are square and tight, marred only by a bump to the lower front Volume II cover and a hint of mottling to the Volume I rear cover. The contents remain clean with only a trace of spotting confined to the endpapers and page edges. The dust jackets are unclipped with trivial losses confined to the spine ends corners and modest overall wear to extremities. The chief flaw is toning and soiling to the spines. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A263.1(I-III).a, Woods/ICS A136(a.1), Langworth p.303.
