        EAST OF EDEN

      Heinemann London 1952 - 1st British Edition. First state of the true first regular edition, with the incorrect version of "bite" instead of "bight" on line 23, page 244. This copy of the book is in frankly brilliant condition because the talented and sensitive book binder, Andrew Sims, has taken what was always regarded as a cheap and disappointing piece of book production and given it a fabulous Fine Binding. It is in full red leather, with gilt titling, five raised bands, and stunning hand marbled endpapers. The text block has been gilded on all three edges. This transforms the original tatty book into a resplendent heirloom standard volume, as befits this wonderful novel. "The subject is the only one man has ever used as his theme - the existence, the balance, the battle, and the victory in the permanent war between wisdom and ignorance, light and darkness - good and evil." (John Steinbeck). This novel was made into the fine Elia Kazan movie, which established its young star, James Dean, as a brilliant and hugely iconic actor. Utterly collectable.

        Sonatina in G Major. For Anne Field

      No place, Christmas, , 1952. Folio. Pp 6. White wove paper lined in six double staves, with plain front wrapper titled in ink by Burgess. Wire stitched. Housed in a blue cloth ribbon tied chemise by The Chelsea Bindery titles to front gilt. Worn at fold with old repair newly conserved. Some signs of damp in a small area slightly effecting three of four notes. Some further edge wear. Holograph music manuscript comprising the complete Sonatina written by Burgess as a Christmas gift to his first wife. Titled and annotated by him and signed at the end with the rare complete form of his signature John Burgess Wilson. Burgess famously wanted more than anything to be considered a composer and the present score comes some 6 years before his first published work of fiction. He wrote two books on music including his "Musical Autobiography" This Man And Music in which he boasts of his greatest work the "unplayable" Guitar concerto. Manuscript versions of his compositions are very scarce indeed - only one has appeared at auction in the past 35 years. We cannot imagine a more personally motivated example as this.

        Typescript]: First Draft of Final Version of Camino Real [with Revisions]

      1952 - Carbon typescript. Quarto. 140pp. Sheets bradbound in the blue "Liebling-Wood" folder of Williams's agent, Audrey Wood. The light blue wrappers moderately worn with tears at the extremities, very good plus. A drama that was expanded from Williams's one-act play, *Ten Blocks on the Camino Real*, after Elia Kazan showed interest in the original story. It debuted on March 15, 1953, and was the first of Williams's plays to feature fantasy elements with a story that follows various literary characters, such as Don Quixote and Casanova, trying to escape an isolated and unidentified Spanish town. This copy, which is divided into 14 blocks instead of the 16 of the final published version, includes a note at the bottom of the first page that reads: "This draft to be kept 'under cover' - only for Audrey Wood, Kazan, and possible producer. T.W."This first draft of the final version but with 23 pages of inserts and revisions scattered throughout the play, most notable are four pages affecting character interaction in the final scene, but retaining the original final draft ending. This version was produced around the time of a November 17, 1952 letter from Kazan to Williams outlining his thoughts on the play. It still includes are the characters Mr. Big and Miss Small but none of the additional lines for the Kilroy character, as suggested by Kazan and played by Eli Wallach, or Esmeralda's prayer in the final scene that sums up the play's message and showcases Williams at his most poetic.Unfortunately, none of these changes worked because the play received some of the worst reviews of Williams's career. One of the harshest comments came from *New York Herald Tribune* theater critic Walter Kerr who said "Williams is our greatest playwright and this is his worst play." Needless to say, the play did not do well, running for only eight weeks and 60 performances. A revival was produced in 1970 by director Jules Irving with Al Pacino, Jessica Tandy, and Susan Tyrrell with similar results. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Harry Truman Presidential Appointment

      1952 - Signed Presidential appointment to a UN agency for Palestinian relief. February 21, 1952 [23"x19"] Presidential Appointment".Edwin A. Locke, Jr of New York Representative of the United States of America on the Advisory Commission of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East."Harry S. Truman (1884-1972), Thirty-third President of the United States. A Missouri native, Truman was first elected to public office in 1922, winning a judge's seat of the Jackson County Court. After serving several terms, Truman was elected to the Senate in 1934, and in 1940 gained national attention for his chairmanship of the Senate Special Committee to Investigate the National Defense Program, which was eventually nicknamed "The Truman Committee." Truman continued his political rise in 1944; he was elected Vice-President as FDR's running mate. After only 82 days in the White House, Truman was thrust into the Presidency when FDR died unexpectedly. His inheritance was a world at war. Germany had surrendered, but Japan refused to give up the battle. Truman, in a desperate move to avoid having to invade the Japanese mainland, ordered the deployment of two atomic bombs. They were dropped on August 6 and August 9, 1945. Japan surrendered on August 14, 1945. As President, Truman waged an undeclared war on the Soviet Union, drafting the "Truman Doctrine", which proclaimed the United States' willingness to provide aid to countries resisting communism. And the Marshall Plan sought to strengthen the European economy in the hopes that this, too, would prevent the spread of Soviet influence. He also brought United States troops into the Korean War (1950-1953). In addition to his cold war activities, Truman's administration expanded the New Deal, and promoted Civil Rights initiatives.

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

      Cassell and Company Ltd., London 1952 - 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 first printing set in very good plus first printing dust jackets. The dust jackets are entirely complete. We note no losses or tears and the front flaps are unclipped, still retaining their original prices. Wear is trivial, confined to extremities. What prevents our grading these dust jackets as fine is slight toning of the spines and modest spotting, most evident at the flap folds. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. The books beneath are in very good condition. The navy blue cloth bindings are square, tight, and clean with nicely rounded spines, bright gilt, and sharp corners. The only exterior flaw noted is a faint (hardly noticeable) suggestion of some mottling of the covers - likely resulting from the same spotting that affects the dust jackets. The contents are bright and tight. Spotting appears confined to the endpapers, prelims and page edges. The sole previous ownership marks we find are a small previous owner name and address sticker affixed to the upper left pastedown of each volume.

        THE TROUBLE WITH CINDERELLA. Inscribed

      Farrar Starus and Young, New York 1952 - Shaw, Artie. THE TROUBLE WITH CINDERELLA. [An Outline of Identity]. Presentation Copy. New York: Farrar, Straus and Young, 1952. Inscribed. 8vo., 394pp. First Edition of Artie Shaw's iconic autobiography, "The Trouble With Cinderella." Gilt-stamped black cloth. A very good or better example in the extremely uncommon original dustwrapper that has a bit of neat archival restoration primarily at the extemities of the spine [some old clear tape on the verso]. Very neatly inscribed on the front free endpaper in blue-black fountain pen: "For Larry - Don't you see? That's the whole idea of the goddamn show! Sincerely, Artie Shaw, 1/14/53." Larry was Larry Lowenstein, a famous public relations persona of the early days of television & radio, & the author of "Famous People Who Knew Me." He represented such personalities as Arthur Godfrey, Dinah Shore, Joyce Brothers & others. "Shaw was a jazz clarinetist, composer & one of the greatest Big-Bandleaders of the 1940s. His song "Begin the Beguine " was wildly successful & became a symbol of the Swing era. He was the first white bandleader to hire a full-time black female singer when he hired Billie Holiday in 1938. Shaw was eccentric & intellectual, & had a tumultuous personal life which included eight marriages, including Ava Gardner, Evelyn Keyes & Lana Turner. A difficult man, he wrote this candid & witty autobiography, concluding that the trouble with Cinderella is that nobody ever lives happily ever after."

        Typed Letter, signed ("F. LL. W. Frank!") to Lewis Mumford

      n.p. [Spring Green, Wisconsin], february 20, 1952 - An affectionate, conversational, and at times pointed, letter to Wright's friend and champion, architectural critic Lewis Mumford. Wright playfully addresses Mumford as "Llewis" and begins the letter with high praise: "I can't tell you how good it was to be with you again in spirit as well as the bodily presence which is essentially the same vital Llewis. The amazing comprehension, as of the earlier days of our friendship, is still vibrant. You were never so much the critic as the creative writer, champion of cultural causes - Llewis. Little good our journalistic sort of critics do our Causes. Even less harm they do to evil ones than good to noble ones because radio, press, and print crawl with them like flies on a window pane. So goes everything we have - prolix but not prolific. We are getting too enormous for a Democracy. Unless we create for ourselves our own eddy in some swirl of the backwater we are washed out and away with the current into internationalism and the commonplace." The rest of the letter concerns various offers that Wright has received from editors interested in publishing his writing, with the noted irony that he was offered more for his work in the early days of his career, when the magazine industry was more robust - " - I guess the magazines are not far from [dead]? Except for advertising." 8vo. 2 pp. typed on oblong Taliesen stationery, with some ink corrections. Prior fold, paperclip stain, else fine in custom red cloth folding box [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        VIGNETTE FROM NIGHTS OF HORROR - ORIGINAL ARTWORK

      np: NP. 1952. "1 drawing. Accompanying was a letter describing the genealogy of the drawing, ""The ""Nights of Horror"" series was drawn by a gifted artist, whom it was my good luck to meet in person in 1952 and who graciously sold me his original drawings, some of which were even inspired by my suggestions. Naturally I spent a small fortune for those drawings, but I have always felt very happy to own them during the past 18 years."" Despite the curious note, the art does not resemble the work of Joe Schuster, co-creator of Superman, who drew the Nights of Horror serials depicted in Craig Yoe's 2008 book Secret Identity." 5"" X 8"", ink and gouache on paper.

        Typed Letter Signed to Earl B. Dickerson

      1952. Two page Typed Letter Signed with handwritten emendations in the text, to Earl B. Dickerson, urging him to run with Vincent Hallinan on the Progressive Party ticket for Vice-President of the United States. On his official letterhead: "Color and Democracy Colonies and Peace" as Vice-Chairman, Council on African Affairs, dated Feb. 12, 1952. Quarto. Housed in a dark red quarter morocco and cloth clamshell case. Earl Dickerson was the first African-American graduate from the University of Chicago and a leading figure in the Civil Rights Movement who sat beside Martin Luther King, Jr. during his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. Dickerson was greatly influenced by The Souls of Black Folk in his youth, and he eventually met W.E.B. Du Bois through their mutual involvement in the NAACP. In this letter Du Bois attempts to convince Dickerson to run for Vice-President on the Progressive Party ticket, and Du Bois also anticipates the social movements of the 1960s. It is worth noting that the only published monograph on Dickerson's life, Earl B. Dickerson: A Voice for Freedom and Equality, makes no mention of Dickerson being considered for the Progressive Party's Vice-Presidential nomination. This is an important and otherwise unknown aspect of Dickerson's career as a political activist. .

        TYPER LETTER SIGNED

      Washington DC 1952 - One page typed letter on Hoover's Office Of The Director letterhead dated August 15, 1952. The letter is to an admirer from Fresno, California and says "Thank you very much for your note of Agust 7, 1952. Your thoughtful comments are indeed kind, and I am most grateful for your remarks concerning my administration of the FBI. I am pleased to know that you enjoyed the movie regarding the Bureau's work, and sincerely appreciate your offer of assistance. Sincerely yours, J. Edgar Hoover". Hoover has signed in blue ink. Fine Condition John Edgar Hoover was the first director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) and served in that post from the time he was 29 years old until his death at the age of 77. Hoover began working in U.S. government service in 1913, first at the Library of Congress, then at the Justice Department. During World War I Hoover worked for the Bureau of Investigation, keeping statistical records of immigrants for the Alien Enemy Bureau. A vigorous anti-communist, Hoover quickly moved up the ranks in the postwar period, and by 1924 was appointed Director of the Bureau of Investigation (later called the Federal Bureau of Investigation). He held the post until 1972, an administration that lasted from President Coolidge to President Nixon. Hoover had a reputation for hyper vigilance in the face of crime and political subversion, and the F.B.I. grew to become known as an incorruptible force who kept files on just about everybody, from gangsters and spies to pop culture figures including John Lennon, Martin Luther King, Jr., Marilyn Monroe and Eldridge Cleaver. Hoover has been a controversial figure since his death, and there has been much speculation about his personal life, family background and dictatorial rule over the Bureau; given his political power over five decades, he is a central figure in the history of scandal and U.S. politics.

        The Natural

      New York: Harcourt Brace and Company. (1952). First. First edition. Spine a little faded, near fine in the gray binding (one of three, with no priority) in a very near fine, price-clipped dustwrapper with a couple of tiny tears and nominal rubbing. Inscribed by the author in the year of publication: "For Charles Crow. Cordially Bern. July 1952." Crow was a friend of Malamud's from New York, and advised Malamud when he applied for teaching positions, eventually accepting a position at Oregon State College. Crow's advice to Malamud is quoted in Bernard Malamud: A Writer's Life by Philip Maurice Davis. An especially nice copy of the author's first book, perhaps the classic baseball novel, and basis for the sugarcoated but nevertheless effective Barry Levinson film featuring Robert Redford, Robert Duvall, Glenn Close, and Kim Basinger. .
