        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.

        Isotopes

      1953 - "SODDY, Frederick. (Isotopes). (London: John Murray), [1953]. Octavo, staple-bound as issued, original gray paper wrappers; pp. 17. $3200.First separate edition of Soddy's 1952 lecture to the Second Meeting of Nobel Prize Winners, inscribed on the front wrapper: "With the Author's Compliments-Frederick Soddy," and additionally labeled "Isotopes" in his hand.A pioneer in atomic theory, Soddy was Rutherford's collaborator in, among other things, the crucial alpha-ray experiments that led to their revolutionary disintegration theory of radioactivity. Together, "they showed how the radioactive element thorium decayed at a fixed rate over time into a series of other elements [which] led to the concept of 'half life'" (Simmons, The Scientific 100 19). As a result of their experiments in radioactivity, Soddy independently became the first to recognize that chemically identical atoms of different atomic weights were all varieties of the same atom, leading him to coin the term "isotope" (Jenkins-Jones, 446). In 1921, he was awarded the Nobel Prize "for his contributions to the knowledge of the chemistry of radioactive substances and his investigations on the occurrence and nature of isotopes" (Callum & Taylor, 143). First published in Number 123 of The School Science Review in March of 1953. About-fine condition." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Love Among the Ruins. A Romance of the Near Future. With Decorations by Various Eminent Hands Including the Author's.

      Limited edition; 8vo; red buckram; top edge gilt others uncut. Number 30 of 50 copies for presentation from an edition limited to 350 copies. Inscribed by the author on the limitation page, "For Basil [Bennett] with warm regards fromEvelyn." Colonel Basil Bennett (1894-1966) was a lifelong friend of Waugh's after they shared digs whilst stationed at Sherborne during the war. Bennett's father was the owner of the Hyde Park Hotel and when, after the war, Bennett became manager there, Waugh frequently brought his family to stay. The convenient central London location and the possibility of cheap alcohol at the hotel bar meant that both men continued a convivial friendship (with only the occasional rupture) for much of their lives. A touching testimony to their friendship can be found in a letter of Waugh's to Nancy Mitford in 1947: "The only Christmas presents I have received are the exquisite pen from you and some wine from Basil Bennett. I love you both. What a pity you & he never married." Very good a little spotting to the end papers and the spine is faded, preserved in custom made slip-case.

Professionally framed. New York: Sidney Janis Gallery, 1953.A fine copy of this extremely rare Duchamp poster, which was also the catalogue for the famous Dada exhibition at the Sidney Janis Gallery. In true Duchampian fashion, the catalogue was crumpled up as a wad of paper and "on exhibit" in a wastepaper basket in the gallery."A most difficult show since collectors were hesitant to risk invaluable loans, but Marcel`s frequent intercession smoothly resolved these problems; still it took a year of intensive work to assemble it, Marcel designed the setting, including a transparent ceiling -an inverted show case - covered with Dada manifestoes and posters. The gallery itself was subdivided by plexiglass walls creating an ambiguous atmosphere which, when the show was hung, resembled a huge Merz construction" (Sidney Janis, "A Recollection of the Dada Show, 1972," in: Marcel Duchamp, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Philadelphia Museum of Art, 1973, p. 202). The poster, mailed as a wad of paper, resulting in most copies being thrown away, contains printed texts by Hans Arp, Richard Huelsenbeck, Jaques-Henry Levesque and Tristan Tzara. Plus a printed list of the Dada artworks in the exhibition.

        Reagan’s Pitch for a Reality Radio Series Based on His Yearling Row Ranch

      1953 - Autograph Manuscript, c. 1953, unsigned, in pencil, on Reagan's "Yearling Row" stationery. 13 pp. "Do you know what it is like to be awakened at 2 AM of a dark foggy night by a telephone call from the Sheriff's office? 'Your cattle have gone through the fence and are blissfully headed for Ventura blvd.'" Reagan and new wife Nancy Davis pitch the idea of a radio series "based on the personal incidents as well as the ranch happenings of a Hollywood couple, an Actor and Actress who go into ranching. Not only is the usual Husband and Wife situation enhanced by a motion picture background but it is played in a setting boasting its own glamour and adventure, a thoroughbred horse farm. Remember too that we ride them as well as raise them.Yearling Row is the home of fine hunters and jumpers, one has been featured in several pictures of mine." Reagan's wit is evident throughout the narrative, as he details his misfortunes as a ranch owner.The ranch reflected Reagan's passion for the outdoor life, but he and Nancy looked upon the horse-breeding business as supplemental income against the vagaries of acting jobs. "Retirement," Reagan complains, "has gone the way of the buffalo nickle thanks to the U.S. dept of Internal Revenue whose legal take can amount to as much as 91% of an actors salary." His response? "So! Back to the farm or as us Westerners put it, 'Back Out Yonder to the ranch' (rancho if you like the latin flavor)"He also praises his wife Nancy, as "she must certainly stem from pioneer stock. I know of no other way to explain her courage in being willing to trade the familiarity of curb stones for the unexplored mystery of ploughed ground." Although her "unexplainable conviction that my ideas made sense" had something to do with it, Reagan still hopes that "this latter quality.will survive the familiarity of the forthcoming years of marital experience."Reagan also details the costs of their 350-acre ranch, difficulties with contractors, and adopts a playfully pastoral tone for much of the letter as he recounts these misadventures in ranching. Although the ranch had two wells, the realtor "had a map with some circles on it and the name and phone number of a geologist who had some information about where new wells would produce something resembling the Johnstown flood." After learning that the two wells together produced about two gallons per minute and that a shower bath required five gallons per minute, and horses needed "a certain number of gallons per day," Reagan concluded, "start adding and this becomes very thirsty arithmetic." Fortunately, "the geologist knew exactly where to dig the wells-after we paid him." Unfortunately, "the wells were also several hundred feet from electricity, so we got into the power line business." After more mishaps, Reagan was pleased to report, "All is peaceful now on the water front. We don't have any irrigated pasture-we just have four pumps busily thrusting twelve gallons of water up to our 5000 gal. tank at a cost in electricity only slightly higher than it would cost to have Gunga Din doing the job on foot."When it became clear that their oat crop was not going to make a profit, they purchased "fifty head of steers to grow fat on the stunted oats. Naturally, we were going to turn a tidy buck on this. We bought at 40 cents a lb. and turned them into the field to chew their way into a dividend." Then, "Uncle Sam slapped a ceiling of 25¢ on beef." After explaining the financial travails of raising cattle, Reagan goes on to the personal, "Do you know what it is like to be awakened at 2 AM of a dark foggy night by a telephone call from the Sheriff's office? 'Your cattle have gone through the fence and are blissfully headed for Ventura blvd.'"There are darker incidents as well. When a "grand old mare" gets fatally entangled in barbed wire, Reagan dispatches the animal himself: "Nancy was reluctant and doubted our right to decide over life and death. My o.
