        Love Among the Ruins

      London: Chapman & Hall,, 1953. A Romance of the Near Future. With Decorations by Various Eminent Hands Including the Author's. Octavo. Original red cloth, decoration to front board and titles to spine gilt, top edge gilt others untrimmed, printed in black and dark red. A fine copy with some fading to the spine. Signed limited edition. Number 25 of just 50 copies (from a total printing of 350) reserved for presentation by the author. Author's presentation copy to novelist Anthony Powell, inscribed on the limitation page, "For Tony with great & growing admiration from Evelyn". Powell's bookplate to the front pastedown. With Decorations by Various Eminent Hands Including the Author's. "Although two years behind him at Oxford, Powell had seen just enough of Waugh to recognise that he was bound to make his mark in the world somehow. They met again in 1927... Powell warmed to Waugh, whose self confidence had not been dented by the many setbacks he had experienced since leaving Oxford." (Michael Barber - Anthony Powell A Life). It was though his friendship with Powell, that Waugh found his first publisher in Duckworth where Powell worked at the time. Duckworth famously declined to publish Waugh's first novel, Decline & Fall, but remained Waugh's publishers choice for his travel writings. The break up of Waugh's marriage involving Powell's raffish friend John Heygate caused relations between Waugh and Powell to temporarily cool, but both kept up a regular correspondence and common interests saw to it that their lives intertwined for the remainder of Waugh's life. In particular, a mutual support, born of respect, for each other's work remained constant between the two. Upon Waugh's death in 1966, Powell wrote, "his going means that a chunk of my own life has gone too." An exceptional association linking two of the great novelists of the twentieth century.

Also included is \'Courses et Elevage\' Tables Genealogiques. These volumes cover the genealogical history of over 50,000 racehorses from the 18th century to the mid 20th century. Volume I is a fold-out double page directory charting the history of each stud. The \'Bobinski Tables\' form the cornerstone of any thoroughbred pedigree research library. Historically, \'The Family Tables of English Thoroughbred Stock\', published in German in 1885 by Herman Goos, were followed by Lowe who was only able to identified 43 families; Goos had identified 61. Goos’s book was republished in 1897, with 50 family charts, but now using Lowe’s system of numbering families, with family number 1 being the foundation mare to whom the most classic winners traced in tail-female descent. Goos’s genealogical charts set the model for a number of later publications, the most significant and comprehensive being by Bobinski and Zamoyski. \'The Bobinski Tables\', identified a total of 74 families tracing mares, the first 49 of which were based on Lowe and Goos, and subdivided the families alphabetically, as in \"1-a,\" to denote various significant branches. In addition, they expanded research into female families of racehorses including Polish (P), Argentine (Ar), American (A), and Colonial (C)-Australian and New Zealand-female lines, and half-bred families (HB). The second, updated volume of the Bobinski Tables was then issued in 1963. The system of identifying female lines by Lowe family number persists to this day. The increasing sophistication of commercial pedigree databases now available to the general public, breed historians, pedigree fans, and bloodstock consultants means that anyone interested in the heritage of throughbreed horses will consider deep analysis of family numbers useful in planning matings and checking form.

        In Cold Hell in Thicket

      Divers Press / Origin, Palma de Mallorca 1953 - A notable association copy of a major Olson work. Olson and Shahn met as co-workers at the Office of War Information in WWII, where they collaborated on Olson's first published book, a pamphlet titled Spanish Speaking Americans in the War. In 1951, Olson invited Shahn onto the faculty of Black Mountain College, where Ben and Bernarda spent a summer teaching painting and graphic arts; among the Shahns' students were Robert Rauschenberg, Suzi Gablik and Francine du Plessix Gray (who quickly, perhaps wisely, switched to studying poetry with Olson). Small square octavo (21cm x 18cm). Issued as Origin 8. Original plain wrappers in patterned, printed dustjacket; unpaged [63pp]. Inscribed by Olson on front endpaper: "for Ben & Bernarda Shahn / with love / Charles Olson," undated. Dustwrapper and endpapers toned and foxed, else Very Good. "Charles Olson" hand-lettered on spine, probably in either Ben or Bernarda's hand. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Autograph manuscript quotation, signed, in English, of the culminating portion of THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN

      - Two pages, 10 inches x 8 inches, matted and framed with a portrait of Mann. Some archivally repaired tears on verso. Mann here has clearly written 47 lines containing most of the climactic paragraph from the chapter "Snow" (utilising Helen Lowe-Porter's English translation), beginning "I hereby declare that I have a prescriptive right to lie here and dream these dreams" until "For the sake of goodness and love, man shall let death have no sovereignty over his thoughts. -- And with this -- I awake". By his selection here Mann emphasized the centrality of these passages, and he later would point to this chapter "Snow" as the containing heart of what his novel concerned, writing "Perhaps you will read the book again.And perhaps you will find out what the Grail is: the knowledge and the wisdom, the consecration, the highest reward, for which . the book itself is seeking. You will find it in the chapter called 'Snow,' where Hans Castorp, lost on the perilous heights, dreams his dream of humanity." "The Making of The Magic Mountain," in "The Atlantic," January 1953. Mann gave his own manuscripts, and (with Einstein, Werfel, Lotte Lehmann, Elizabeth Bergman, and Emil Ludwig), signed an appeal for other manuscript donations at bond rallies in 1943-1945. Original manuscripts donated by the authors (including this one) were awarded as premiums to the largest purchasers of bonds. See "List of Manuscripts Awarded by the Book and Author War Bond Committee 1943-1946" (Jamaica, N.Y.: Book and Author War Bond Committee / Queens Borough Public Library, 1946) where our manuscript is mentioned.

        Prototype Sports Car Concept Art

      Boston, 1953. Tempera on paper. Initialled "R.S.W." Mounted circular label, lower right. Handsome 1950's sports car design All of our present information about this drawing comes from a label on the back of the piece, which indicates that it comes from the archives of the A.J. White Motor Vehicle Research Company - designers of exotic cars in the Boston, MA area. We have not discovered any further information about the A. J. White Research Company thus far, nor about the artist, R.S.W. of this particular drawing. There does not appear to be any connection to the great White truck manufacturer. The drawing itself is especially nice, its cool red sportscar positioned diagonally between two details in blue, in a way that makes it appear anxious to move.
