A short novel, it was the last major work published during Hemingway's lifetime and is widely considered one of his two or three enduring masterpieces. Basis for the 1958 John Sturges film starring Spencer Tracy. Certainly, this book was a major contributing factor in Hemingway's winning the Nobel Prize the following year. William Faulkner, in his review of the book, called it Hemingway's best. Near fine in like jacket with but a small chip to the crown of the spine [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Are There Quantum Jumps

      Edinburgh and London: Thomas Nelson and Sons. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. FIRST PRINTING IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Schrödinger's consideration of quantum jumps and the future of physics. Complete in two parts. "Throughout his life, Schrödinger sought to discredit Bohr's concept of quantum jumping. His forceful attacks culminated in the 1952 paper 'Are There Quantum Jumps?' In this paper he also presented some objections against Born's collision treatment and probabilistic interpretation..." Schrödinger also "repeated his old arguments, enveloped in a good deal of rhetoric. Physical science is at present in danger, he argued, of being severed both from its glorious history and from its cultural milieu. Physicists must concern themselves, not only with ingenious theoretical constructs and their agreement with experimental data, but also with the suitability of their concepts to be absorbed into a general spiritual culture of mankind: 'Science is not a soliloquy. It gains value only within its cultural milieu, only by having contact with all those who are now, and who in future will be, engaged in promoting spiritual culture and knowledge.' "Not all concepts, according to Schrödinger, are destined to survive: 'A theoretical science... where the initiated continue musing to each other in terms that are, at best, understood by a small group of close fellow travelers, will necessarily be cut off from the rest of cultural mankind, in the long run it is bound to atrophy and ossify'. The 'abbreviated language' of quantum jumps, Schrödinger argued, is not a suitable candidate for long-term survival. There were other 'ingenious constructs of the human mind that gave an exceedingly accurate description of observed facts and have yet lost all interest except to historian,' for example, the epicycles of planetary motion. The modern analogue of epicycles, Schrödinger prophesied, are the quantum jumps" (Beller, Quantum Dialogue: The Making of a Revolution). IN: The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science, Vol III, No. 10 (pp. 109-123); Part II, Vol III, No. 11 (pp. 233-242). Edinburgh and London: Thomas Nelson and Sons, Ltd., August and November, 1952. Octavo, original wrappers. A few marginal (scientific) pencil notations (not in Schrödinger paper). Part I with a little chipping and small ink stain to spine end wrappers and patch of soiling to rear wrapper. Part II fine. An extremely well-preserved copy, rare in original wrappers.

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

      [1952]. Carbon typescript. Quarto. 133pp. Sheets bradbound in the blue "Liebling-Wood" folder of Williams' agent, Audrey Wood. The light blue wrappers have light wear at the extremities, near fine. A drama that was expanded from Williams' 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' 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 16, as in the final published version, includes a typed note at the bottom of the first page that reads: "This draft is to be kept 'under cover' - only for Audrey Wood, Kazan, and possible producer. T.W."Some key differences indicate this draft was written prior to a November 17, 1952 letter from Kazan to Williams outlining his thoughts on the play but before any changes were made by Williams. This copy includes the characters Mr. Big and Miss Small but not any of the additional lines created 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 to similar success. .

An attractive set of mid-century film memorabiliaA complete list is available upon request. .

        Coins In The Fountain

      J. B. Lippincott, Philadelphia, New York 1952 - Signed and Inscribed by the author on the front end page (in Italian, though the book is in English - the author lived in the U.S. from the age of 4 until his career took him abroad again as an adult). Stated First Edition and it is the First Printing. The book is in Near Fine condition - straight, clean, tight with no writing in it other than the author's inscription. It is bound in green cloth with silver gilt printing on the spine and the front panel. It has only a small amount of shelf and handling wear to the cloth at spine ends and 1 lower corner tip to keep it from being Fine. The dustjacket is price intact, bright, clean and unfaded with just a touch of shelfwear to spine and flap fold ends, a very short, completely closed tear (no material loss) to upper back edge, and a small amount of rubbing along the spine folds. The dustjacket was printed just a tad shorter, about 1/32", than the book - not noticeable unless you're looking for it. Great condition, and a very scarce book - particularly signed. Made into a 1954 U.S. romantic movie set in Italy called 'Three Coins In The Fountain' - that reputedly vastly increased U.S. tourism in Italy as nominated for an Oscar. As was the song from the movie (same title as the movie). That song was an enduring romantic favorite for a couple of generations and won the 1954 Oscar for best original song. The story was remade as a musical in 1964 called 'The Pleasure Seekers' and then in 1990 was made into a TV film. The song from the original movie was a #1 single in the U.K. as recorded by Frank Sinatra, and was also recorded both by The Four Aces (another #1 single, in the U.S.) and it was yet again recorded by Dinah Shore (take your pick; they were all done extremely well). ; 8.25" x 5.75" x 1.25".; 320 pages; Signed by Author LOC 52-8785 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        La Ballade de la geôle de reading [The Ballad of Reading Gaol] [Inscribed by Camus]

      (Paris): Falaize. (1952). An out-of-series copy of this bilingual edition of 3000 numbered copies of Wilde's poem, printed here with Camus' "L'Artiste en Prison," which delineates Wilde's journey from themes of ideal beauty to existential suffering. Inscribed by Camus (in French): "to Sylvestre,/ a remembrance of Iguape/ and with the friendly thoughts/ of Albert Camus." While context does not give explanation to the reference to Iguape, one of Camus' last stories, "The Growing Stone" -- the final story in Camus' last collection, Exile and the Kingdom -- is set in Iguape, Brazil. It has been said that this story is the clearest manifestation of Camus' ideals: in it, the protagonist sacrifices himself to help a friend, and behaves morally despite his own understanding of the absurdity of the world. Camus won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957, the year Exile and the Kingdom was published, and the Prize committee cited his "clear-sighted earnestness [which] illuminates the problems of the human conscience in our times." As best we can tell, this is the first appearance in print of "L'Artiste en Prison," which was translated into English and published in Encounter magazine two years later. A very near fine copy in French wraps. Books inscribed by Camus are uncommon; the author died in 1960 in a car accident, at the age of 46. First Edition. Softcover.
