      Doubleday and Company, New York 1953 - First edition, first printing. Signed and inscribed by the author. Original gray cloth, lettered yellow on spine. In original dust-wrapper which is not price clipped and displays the original price of $3 on front flap. 8vo. 250pp. Signed and inscribed on front free endpaper by Ray Bradbury to his long-time friend, collaborator and editor, "For Peter Haining Twice!! Ray Bradbury Ray Bradbury 1968 and 1987 April". (Bradbury had originally signed the book 'Ray Bradbury 1968' but had later, in a different ink, signed the book again, adding the additional words and date). Probably an advance review copy as it has the date March 19 (presumably the projected release date) written on the inner flap of the d/w below the price. The cloth binding is clean and fresh with sharp corners. The text block has a trace of yellowing to page edges (as is common) but is clean and fresh with no blemishes or defects. The hinges and stitching are tight and sound throughout. The d/w has one short snagged tear just above the word 'Apples' and a little wear at head and tail of spine. The yellow of the spine panel is very slightly faded. Overall Fine in VG d/w. From the collection of the late Peter Haining (1940-2007). Peter Haining was a British publisher, anthologist and writer, a long-standing friend of Ray Bradbury who had been responsible for the first British publication in book form of many of Ray Bradbury's early stories (see Michael Ashley, William G. Contento: The Supernatural Index). A classic work of science-fiction which will always be a sought after title by collectors of the genre and a nice association copy. See our other Abe listings for several other scarce Ray Bradbury items from Peter Haining's collection. We will happily entertain offers from those wishing to acquire the whole of the Haining collection, subject to items being unsold. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Watt [Signed]

      Paris: The Olympia Press, 1953. First Edition. Wrappers. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original plum-colored wrappers (edge wear, slight loss at the spine extremities, quite short split where the front wrapper joins the spine tail, minor loss to the front wrapper's bottom right corner and a tiny bit of loss to the rear wrapper's lower left corner), SIGNED BY SAMUEL BECKETT on the title page. Samuel Beckett's second novel, "Watt" was first published by The Olympia Press in English in a Limited Edition of 1,125 copies, twenty-five of which were signed and were lettered "A" to "Y. The remaining 1,100 copies, of which this is copy 747, were intended for general circulation and were issued unsigned. Notably, the twenty-five lettered copies comprise the smallest limitation of any of Beckett's major works and copies of them rarely come to market. As none of the numbered copies were called to be signed, we surmise that signed copies of them are even rarer than are the signed lettered copies, making the copy herein described, an early work in the Beckett canon (originally written about 1943 and one of the works which first brought him to the world's attention), at least extremely scarce and more likely rare. Samuel Beckett won the 1969 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his writing, which - in new forms for the novel and drama - in the destitution of modern man acquires its elevation". In his Presentation Speech, Karl Ragnar Gierow of the Swedish Academy noted the novel's uniqueness and stated: "In several respects, the novel Watt marks a change of phase in this remarkable [early] output. Written in 1942-44 in the South of France - whence Beckett fled from the Nazis, having lived for a long time in Paris - it was to be his last work in English for many years; he made his name in French and did not return to his native tongue for about fifteen years. The world around had also changed when Beckett came to write again after Watt. All the other works which made his name were written in the period 1945-49. " A Very Good copy of an early and important Beckett work, one of the early works which brought him to fame and the last of his novels to have been written in English, SIGNED BY SAMUEL BECKETT. EXTREMELY SCARCE TO RARE.

      Mallorca, Spain 1953 - Two very early one-page AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED by Merwin, one dated 19 January 1953 and the other 4 December, likely in 1952, the year his first book was published. Both letters are addressed to W. Price Turner of Scotland, editor of THE POET magazine. In the earlier letter, Merwin submits poems [not present] for the Winter issue and briefly discusses "the unfortunate incompetence of the Spanish postal system." In the later and lengthier letter, Merwin thanks Turner for a letter and a copy of his magazine. In part: "It is extremely heartening, ever, to find a native of the British isles who is aware that American poetry does exist. Who, if I'm not being impertinent, and for my own amusement, was the 'overpraised poet' who so happily remarked that it didn't? . Oxford University Press has imported 'a limited number' of copies of A MASK FOR JANUS [Merwin's first book] (whatever that means) at a horrifying price -- 16s. Which I suppose effectively renders it invalid in England, whether or not anything else did." Two fine and very early letters by Merwin, with one envelope addressed by the poet to Turner in Glasgow, "Escocia (Inglaterra)," with interesting content about his early work.

        Banquet Song

      Barcelona: (Frederic Prokosch). 1953. First. First edition. Batik self-wrappers with printed paper label. 12mo. Fine. One of 44 copies, this copy number VI of 10 Roman numeraled copies in paper from Salamanca. Inscribed by the author on the front fly with a Christmas greeting. In original mailing envelope hand-addressed by Prokosch (on which an old ink bookseller's description and price appears). A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. OCLC locates four copies. .

Exemplaire sur bouffant de l'édition portant sur le faux titre un ENVOI autographe signé de Breton "A ma chère Marie Cuttoli en toute affection". ¤¤¤¤¤¤ Marie Bordes est née en 1879. Elle épousa à Constantine le Sénateur Paul Cuttoli, et partage sa vie entre le France et l'Algérie. En décembre 1926, elle ouvre rue Vignon La Maison Myrbor qui expose des tapis qu'elle fait fabriquer à Sétif d'après Picasso, Léger, Arp, Klee. A partir de 1930, elle fonde la Galerie Vignon qu'elle loue un temps à Jeanne Bucher pour y exposer des sculptures de Jacques Lipchitz. Les deux femmes devinrent amies et s'associèrent en décembre 1935 pour l'ouverture boulevard du Montparnasse de la galerie Bucher Myrbor. Marie Cuttoli partageait également sa vie avec le professeur Henri Laugier qui, fort de ses appuis politiques, exerça une action déterminante pour le développement des sciences et des arts. Ensemble ils fréquentaient les artistes et les écrivains surréalistes dont Man Ray, Nush et Paul Eluard, André Breton. En 1940, à la déclaration de guerre, c'est dans le midi chez Marie Cuttoli que Aube et Jacqueline Breton trouvèrent refuge. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

A fine copy in orange cloth, gilt titles to the spine, in like fine dustwrapper with the very uncommon wrap-around-band. Revealing glimpses of Virginia Woolf & essential for an understanding of her writing methods & how her thought process influenced her life & relationships. It was not until Woolf's full Diaries were published that they were recognized, with her letters as companion, as her literary masterpieces. Virginia Woolf kept her diaries from 1915 until her death in 1941. Her husband, Leonard Woolf, notes in his preface that her "diary gives for 27 years a consecutive record of what she did, of the people whom she saw and particularly of what she thought about those people, about herself, about life, and about the books she was writing or hoped to write." Leonard Woolf has here excerpted his wife's diaries from 1918 through 1941, including every reference his wife's diaries made to her own writing. The resulting book "throws light upon Virginia Woolf's intentions, objects, and methods as a writer. It gives an unusual psychological picture of artistic production from within."
