      Farrar, Straus and Young [1953]., New York - cloth-backed boards. First edition. MORE THAN HUMAN is one of Sturgeon's best and probably his best-known novel. The story expresses a recurrent theme in the author's work: the passage of a character (or, in this case, six of them) from freak to superman, a passage of self-discovery and self-realization, if not apotheosis. In this story, the six outcasts come together to form a more-than-human collective psyche. It is told with the author's characteristic depth of emotional resonance. "Growing out of the acclaimed novella, 'Baby is Three," this excellent work describes the rise, against all meanness and bigotries of the surrounding world, of Homo Gestalt, an individual composed of the blended intelligences of numerous people, each of whom retains personal identity while contributing a particular strength or talent to the whole. An emergence-of-the-superhuman story, made more of a struggle than it was for the superchildren in Clarke's CHILDHOOD'S END (1953), but shorn also of the inevitable tragedy forecast for the superhumans in Stapledon's ODD JOHN (1935)." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1100. Winner of the 1954 International Fantasy Award for best novel. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels 14. Survey of Science Fiction Literature III, pp. 1453-58. Some foxing to endpapers, a fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with some mild rubbing, mainly at spine ends and along folds, some color transfer to rear panel (from being pressed against another book), and some foxing to the inner surface. A nice copy. (#155465) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph Christmas Card Designed by the Composer!

Dated New Haven, December 12, 1952. Translated from the German, in part: "I'm glad that you like 'Harmony' and had success with it. -- In June we will finally be on our way from here to Europe, so I won't be able to come to the Kiel Festival (anyway, I'm a bad sailor and sprats don't agree with me)..."

Hole-punched along the left edge, else fine. 14 x 10.5 cm.

A sixteen page poem.Presentation copy, inscribed on the half-title page by the author to his son Gwydion who was eight year old at the time: "For Gwydion - Easter 1953 *". As with his first two publications, RST also financed the publication of The Minister, which had been commissioned by the BBC. It was the last time he would resort to such measures. Soon after its publication he told the poet Raymond Garlick: "I am so hard up that I have almost ceased buying books. I hope the necessity for publishing my own stuff is over." With the publication of Song at the Year's Turning (1955) his wish came true.The staples which had begun to rust have been removed, presumably by one of the Thomases.

        Battle Cry

      New York: G. P. Putnam's, 1953. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Inscribed by Leon Uris to the editor in chief of Putnam's, Ted Purdy, on the fly leaf: "To my buddy Craphouse Mouse Purdy, Lee Uris, Thanx (sic) for the most wonderful week of our lives." 1953, First Edition. Hardcover, blue boards with emblem and titles in red. Very Good in a Good dust jacket. Light wear to the spine ends; pages with very early signs of age-toning; clean contents. The DJ is faded along the spine and rear panel; the joint connecting the front panel to the inner flap is mostly split, but still attached; shallow loss to the spine ends; small abrasion to the bottom right corner of the front panel, probably from the removal of a label or sticker. This copy also includes a 15 page prospectus for the book that was put out in advance by Putnam's. A tremendous association and likely the best copy of this title that will ever be available. Uris' first novel -- a critical and commercial success.
