        FORT CONCHO AND THE TEXAS FRONTIER

      San Angelo Standard-Times, 1952., 1952. First edition. 8vo. Presentation inscription by the author, "For Ken Huddleston, Nov. 1, 1987 – Ken: I won’t try to recount it here, but next time we get together for a leisurely visit I’ll relate, for the record, something of the story of the making of this book – which, from the standpoint of art, printing and binding, I’ll personally guarantee to be sound –J Evetts Haley (brand)". Cloth, 352 pp., illus., 4 maps & diagram of the fort. Designed and produced by Carl Hertzog. Illus. by H.D. Bugbee. Maps by Jose Cisneros. A truly great history of the West Texas frontier. "Fort Concho was not only the center of significant events; it was the geographic and strategic hinge upon which history swung. From this vital pivot swung the great campaigns that swept the Comanches off the southern plains, that blocked at last the renegade Apaches along the Mexican border, and that extended a generally protective shield across the heart of Texas...by the very magnitude of its stage and the vital movements of its time, it was destined to occupy a place in history."--J. Evetts Haley. "This is one of the best books about any of the vital string of federal forts established in West Texas to tame the frontier."--John H. Jenkins. A "must" for any Texana or Indian Wars collection. Fine, tight copy, in lightly rubbed dust jacket with light wear to the extremities. Highly recommended. Becoming scarce.

        The Old Man and the Sea

      New York: Charles Scribner's & Sons, 1952. First edition. Octavo, original light blue cloth. Fine in a fine first issue price-clipped dust jacket without the usual fade to the spine. A superior copy. Upon its publication in 1952 by Charles Scribner's Sons, The Old Man and the Sea was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction the following year and was cited by the Nobel Committee as contributing to the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to Hemingway in 1954. The novel reinvigorated Hemingway's literary reputation. It initiated a reexamination of his entire body of work. The novel was received with such alacrity, that it restored many readers' confidence in Hemingway's capability as an author. Indeed, the publisher even wrote on an early dust jacket, calling the novel a "new classic," and it was compared by many critics to such revered works as William Faulkner's "The Bear" and Herman Melville's Moby-Dick.

        In Country Sleep and Other Poems

      New York: New Directions, 1952. Slim small 4to, 34, (1, colophon)pp. Original green-gray boards, dust-jacket browned and chipped at head. Photo of Thomas pasted to title-page, another clipped from a magazine loosely inserted. Bookplate of Mrs. A.M. Huntington New York. First US edition. Signed Ã’Dylan ThomasÓ at the front and dated Ã’October 1953Ó -- just days before his death in NY on Nov. 9th after going into a coma on Nov. 4th. As he only arrived in New York on October 19 for what would be his final tour, this book must have been signed in those two weeks between his arrival and his death. A poignant association copy though for whom it was signed one can only guess -- perhaps Mrs. Huntington whose modest book-label under the d/j flap seems to have been there since publication. The book includes Ã’Do not go gentle into that good nightÓ, perhaps his most famous poem, which appears here for the first time in America.
