        The Battle For Investment Survival

      Boston: Barron&#39;s Publishing Company, 1952. First edition of the second edition. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Signed by Gerald Loeb on the front free endpaper. The second edition was expanded by 18 chapters and is the preferred edition. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Exceptionally rare, especially signed. In The Battle for Investment Survival, the goal is to preserve your capital at all costs, and to win is to "make a killing without being killed." Originally written in 1935, The Battle for Investment Survival treats investors to a straightforward account of how to profit--and how to avoid profit loss--in what Loeb would describe as the constant tug-of-war between rising and falling markets. "Most of today&#39;s advisors are telling us to diversify into stocks, bonds, foreign stocks, and perhaps gold, to spread the risk; Loeb tells us to put all our eggs in one basket, and watch the basket" (John Rothchild).

        Raine/Watkins Letters: Correspondence between Kathleen Raine, Vernon Watkins, Gwen Watkins, and others

      London: Kathleen Raine, 1952-1993. Letters, postcards, greeting cards from British poet, scholar, and editor Kathleen Raine to poet Vernon Watkins, his wife Gwen Watkins, son Gareth, and Ruth Pryor, a Watkins scholar. 59 pieces in all. Kathleen Raine (1908 - 2003) began publishing in the 1930s, with her first book appearing in 1943. She published 12 volumes of poetry in her lifetime, a well-received autobiography, and many volumes of essays and criticism. Raine was a respected independent scholar of William Blake and W. B. Yeats. She also founded and edited Tenemos, a quarterly devoted to "the arts of the imagination," publishing articles on neo-platonism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and other spiritual topics. Vernon Watkins (1906-1967), Anglo-Welsh poet, translator, and painter, was a close friend of poet Dylan Thomas. Though never as well known as Thomas, interest in his poetry has been growing since his death. His lush, intricately sounded poems, often on mythical or spiritual themes, went against the major poetic tendencies during his lifetime; their strengths can now be seen and appreciated.Gwen Watkins, his widow, worked to preserve and increase the reputation of her husband&#39;s poetry. She later taught at Oxford, and wrote books about her husband&#39;s friendship with Dylan Thomas, and about her experiences as a codebreaker at Bletchley Park in World War II (where she met her husband). Gareth Vernon Watkins, one of Watkins&#39; sons, became a philosophy professor. Ruth Pryor was a scholar who edited Watkins&#39; poems after his death, wrote about their use of myth and symbolism, and wrote general literary criticism. The largest group of letters, totaling 34 pieces from 1968 to 1987 (11 undated pieces), was written by Raine to Gwen Watkins, the poet&#39;s widow. The first in the series sends condolences on the poet&#39;s death and affirms his importance as a poet. The other letters revolve around publishing Watkins&#39; unpublished poems, writing and commissioning articles about his work, and generally keeping his writing available. Two of the letters are typed on Tenemos letterhead. Attached to these letters are copies in typescript of articles on Watkins that Raine planned to publish in Tenemos. Eight letters (1983 to 1993, one undated) are addressed to both Gwen Watkins and scholar Dr. Ruth Pryor, and mostly discuss the editing of Watkins&#39; poems and various efforts to publish them and commission scholarly articles about them. & Six letters (1977 to 1984; one undated) are addressed to Ruth Pryor alone. Pryor was working intensively on editing Watkins&#39; poems, and on writing about the symbolism she saw in them. Six letters (1952 to 1967, one undated) are addressed to Vernon Watkins. Raine wrote to Watkins as a fellow poet and to express her admiration for his writing. She visited him once at his home in Wales, a visit alluded to in the letters, and wrote to him in Seattle shortly before his death. One letter (1971) from Gareth Watkins to Gwen Watkins, his mother. Letter tells about his studies and a recent short vacation. There are also four Christmas cards, addressed to Gwen and to Gwen and Ruth, all undated, all signed by Raine. All letters are in autograph except for some of the letters on Tenemos letterhead, which Raine generally typed and signed.

Un menu illustré et coloré main du portraitiste et une invitation imprimés sur beau papier prolongent ces réjouissances versatiles.Ensemble exceptionnel.Exemplaire avec boîte et livret, ou seul livret ou sans disponibles sur demande. Édition ô combien originale. L'un des 337 présumés exemplaires, dont 120 imprimés le 15.11.1950 et 217 les 6 et 8.3.1956.

        Approach to Infinity

      [Glendale, CA]: [Roy Squires], 1952 [Glendale, CA]: [Roy Squires], [1952]. First and only edition. Signed by Dollens and inscribed to Barbara Champlin on the "About the Artist" page. Illustrated throughout by Dollens. Unpaginated, but 14 pp, including wraps. A little age toning of the paper, else fine. Extraordinarily rare and visionary little black-and-white paper opus published by Roy Squires in Glendale in 1952 (though nowhere so credited within), with front and rear wrapper illustrations based on photographic miniatures with projected backgrounds, the illustrations within reproduced from water-color and tempera paintings, partly sprayed through stencils, all by Dollens. The theme herein, for the images and the text (also by Dollens), is a mystical one of man&#39;s approaching destiny out there somewhere in the endless stars, with a sense that this is so very natural, a step in our spiritual evolution. Somewhere in the web between the text and illustrations lies an oddly almost religious mood. Looking at it, reading it, this unpretentious little book really does seem to crystalize what science fiction is all about for many of us - as does the title itself. Subsequent readings then almost feel like a benediction. Sounds like a very lot from a very little, but that&#39;s what Dollens achieved here. The multi-talented Dollens was a long-time science-fiction illustrator and photographer, with numerous cover and internal illustration credits in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Aboriginal Science Fiction, Science Fiction Advertiser, Fantasy Advertiser, Räuber auf Selena, The Future Is Now, Gamma: New Frontiers in Fiction, and others, and was the dustjacket portrait photographer for such authors as Ray Bradbury (The Martian Chronicles, Something Wicked This Way Comes) and Chad Oliver (The Winds of Time), not to mention non-sci-fi works such as the photography for Karen Kuykendall&#39;s Every Cats. Inscription to Barbara Champlin is in blue-green ink, next to his professional address at the time (presumably circa 1952, though the inscription is undated) at 3771 Motor Avenue, Los Angeles 34 California. A very early creation for both Dollens and publisher Roy Squires. Try finding another one of these. L-100
