        Old Man and the Sea

      1952. First Edition . HEMINGWAY, Ernest. The Old Man and the Sea. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1952. Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jacket. $4200.First edition of Hemingway's classic story of Santiago and his epic battle with the marlin and the sharks, winning him the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 and contributing to his award of the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature.William Faulkner, who reviewed The Old Man and the Sea for the magazine Shenandoah, called the novel Hemingway's best: ""Time may show it to be the best single piece of any of us. I mean his and my contemporaries"" (Baker, 593-94). ""Here is the master technician once more at the top of his form, doing superbly what he can do better than anyone else"" (New York Times). In this short novel Hemingway perfected the minimalist style that he had been honing and refining throughout his career. While working on it he wrote to Scribner, ""This is the prose that I have been working for all my life that should read easily and simply and seem short and yet have all the dimensions of the visible world and the world of a man's spirit. It is as good prose as I can write as of now"" (Letters, 738). With Scribner's ""A"" beneath copyright notice. First-edition dust jacket, with no mention of the Nobel Prize. Hanneman A24a. Book with faint staining to cloth, bright price-clipped dust jacket with only light rubbing. A handsome near-fine copy.

        Autograph letter initialed

      1952. ROOSEVELT, Eleanor. Autograph letter initialed. Moscow, September 18, [1958]. Single sheet of stationery, measuring 6 by 7 inches; pp. 2. $2600.Original autograph letter written entirely in Eleanor Roosevelt’s hand and sent from Moscow in 1958 to her close friend, university professor and women’s activist Esther Lape, thanking Lape for sending “the Nehru letter,” referencing her warm memories of Lape’s late partner, Elizabeth Read, sharing Roosevelt’s post-Moscow travel plans, and initialed in closing by Eleanor Roosevelt.This most desirable letter was written during the second of Eleanor Roosevelt’s two trips to Russia—in the fall of 1958, as evident from Roosevelt’s reference to how “mail has improved this year as everything else has.” Dated “Moscow, Sept. 18th” and written on Eleanor Roosevelt’s personal letterhead, the letter reads in full: “Dearest Esther, It is so cold I am wrapped in everything I own, but I want to write a line of thanks for the Nehru letter, very thought provoking & ideas of all kinds are seething through my head for the four columns I’ll write on getting home. I loved Peggy’s letter & Elizabeth must have helped so many of us to honesty & maturity. What a wonderful person she was. I never find her long out of my thoughts. I think the mail has improved this year as everything else has in the material line since last year. your letter of the 11th came this morning. we are seeing what we want & are so nearly through that we plan to leave the 26th by jet in the a.m. & be in Paris about 11 a.m. & take four days before going home. I am glad as Edna & David will enjoy it & so will I. My dear love to you E.R.” This letter was written to Esther Lape, one of Eleanor Roosevelt’s closest friends. Lape was an English professor at Barnard, Swarthmore, and the University of Arizona. She also distinguished herself through her participation in the Women’s Trade Union League and as one of the founders of the League of Women Voters. Additionally, Lape was the life partner of Elizabeth Read, Eleanor Roosevelt’s personal attorney and financial advisor. It was that association that brought Lape to the attention of Eleanor Roosevelt and resulted in their friendship. As early as 1920, the three women already had a close professional association, working together on matters pertaining to the League of Women Voters. In 1921, they began meeting as friends, collaborating on the New Women movement. In 1923, Lape and Roosevelt worked alone for the first time, holding a competition for the Bok Peace Prize. When the Senate launched an investigation into whether the Bok Prize was a tool of “foreign governments or foreign institutions,” Lape identified Roosevelt as one of the most influential members of the selection committee for the prize. The hearing were suspended with Wilson’s death and never revived. Throughout the 1930s, Lape and Roosevelt worked together on issues such as healthcare and United States recognition of the Soviet Union. With the war, their interests diverged somewhat, but their friendship remained as strong as ever. Lape and her partner Read owned a building in Greenwich Village and Roosevelt, desperate for an escape from the pressures of life as first lady, rented an apartment there. Lape and Read’s country home in Connecticut provided similar refuge. When Read died in 1943, Lape and Roosevelt grew even closer, holding up the memory of a beloved partner and friend. Upon Roosevelt’s death, Lape fought to get a posthumous Nobel Peace Prize for Roosevelt, but failed in that endeavor.A fine autograph initialed letter with an outstanding association.

        Charlotte's Web

      1952. Signed. WHITE, E.B. Charlotte's Web. New York: Harper & Brothers, circa 1970. Octavo, original pictorial paper boards, pictorial endpapers, original dust jacket. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $4500.Later printing of one of the most delightful and beloved of children's books, a cornerstone of any collection of modern children's literature; a rare copy inscribed by the author, ""Ethan and Ben with greetings from E.B. White.""The most celebrated of White's three children's books, ""Charlotte's Web is rightly regarded as a modern classic"" (Connolly, 322-23). ""The book is resonant, lyrical, serious, profound. It is one of the very few books for young children that face, squarely, the subject of death. And above all it is celebratory"" (Silvey, 677). White seldom inscribed his books, particularly his children's books; accordingly, copies of Charlotte's Web inscribed by him are quite rare and most desirable. In his later years, White wrote a form letter to send to children in which he commented, ""Some of my readers want me to visit their school. Some want me to send a picture, or an autograph, or a book… Much as I'd like to, I can't go visiting. I can't send books, either—you can find them in a bookstore or a library. Many children assume that a writer owns (or even makes) his own books. This is not true—books are made by the publisher. If a writer wants a copy, he must buy it. That's why I can't send books. And I do not send autographs—I leave that to the movie stars."" With numerous endearing illustrations by Garth Williams. First published in 1952. Anderson, 6. Costen 11941. Books of the Century, 210. Book fine, dust jacket nearly so.

        Decisive Moment

      1952. First Edition . Signed. CARTIER-BRESSON, Henri. The Decisive Moment. New York: Simon and Schuster, (1952). Folio, original pictorial boards, original dust jacket. Original laid-in caption booklet. $9200.First edition in English, published simultaneously with the French, wonderfully inscribed on the title page by him, “á Madame Mary Ruth Jones, avec mon respectueuse souvenir, Henry Cartier-Bresson,"" with 126 photographs by “the Raphael of 20th-century photographers,” with laid-in caption book, dust jacket cover design by Matisse.""Cartier-Bresson has a special interest in photographing people and in capturing the essence of what has not previously been seen. He is famous for his theory of the 'decisive moment'-that is seizing the split second when the subject stands revealed in its most significant aspect? Today he ranks as one of the most important and influential photographers of this century"" (Blodgett, 96)—""the Raphael of 20th-century photographers"" (Icons of Photography, 58). Decisive Moment is Cartier-Bresson's most famous work, containing his most comprehensive and important statement on the meaning, technique, and utility of photography. ""The simultaneous publication [of this edition with Images à la Sauvette] in New York in July 1952, with a cover by Matisse (who had just had his retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art) was a tremendous success"" (Roth, 134). With extremely scarce dust jacket; separate caption pamphlet (rarely found) laid in. Parr & Badger I:208. Open Book, 154-5. Cartier-Bresson's inscription is roughly translated: ""To M… with my respectful memory.""

        Les Belles de Nuit [The Beauties of the Night] (Original French program for the 1952 film)

      Franco London Films, Paris 1952 - Original French program for the 1953 film, starring Gina Lollobrigida. A typically artful Rene Clair production, which like the director's earlier "Le Silence est d'Or" presents a highly stylized (and lushly romanticized) vision of a bygone France. A young composer, bored and irritated with the world of the present, gives himself over completely to daydreams of romance and adventure, hopping through time from the French Revolution to the Jazz Age. AA beautifully designed program, with a tipped-on cover plate illustration by French poster artist Georges Allard. With a clear glassine outer wrapper card covers, then a thinner, blue-tinted inner glassine wrapper. Content includes an introductory essay by Clair, and duotone full-size photos of the cast. Saddle-stitched, 16 pages. 12.25 x 9.5 inches. Near Fine condition, with just a touch of fading to the card wrappers and a faint corner crease to the front and rear of the outer Mylar wrapper. A rare artifact from the 1950s French cinema that brings out the essence of Rene Clair's artistry and sense of beauty.Godard, Histoires du cinema. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The jacket is printed in brown, making no mention of Hemingway's Nobel Prize. Much has been made of the colour tint on the rear panel portrait; however Grissom refutes Hanneman's assertion that the blue tinted photograph on the rear flap predates the olive tint, noting, "the identification of a first-printing jacket does not require identifying ambiguous rear-jacket colours: It is the brown printing on the flaps and rear panel that identify the first-printing Scribner's jacket." Grissom A24.1.a; Hanneman A24a. [Attributes: First Edition]
