Written in 1950, it is the first book of The Chronicles of Narnia and is the best known book of the series. Though traditionally known as the first book in the series, it is the second book in chronological order, and its prequel "The Magician's Nephew" is currently marketed as Book 1 due to a decision by the publisher to renumber the books according to internal chronology rather than publication date..

Please note that most of the value of the early James Bond titles is found in the original dust jacket, as although the books are rare, the first edition jackets are even more rare -the result of both the jacket being more fragile and prone to damage, in addition to the fact that many were often discarded.

GALLEGOS, RÓMULO
Ediciones Humanismo, 1954. RARE CLEAN SIGNED COPY OF RÓMULO GALLEGOS AUTOBIOGRAPHY. Shipped with USPS Media Mail. Spine partially unhinged but otherwise in almost new condition. Rómulo Ángel del Monte Carmelo Gallegos Freire (2 August 1884 – 5 April 1969) was a Venezuelan novelist and politician. This copy signed and dedicated to Professor Roberto Esquenazi Mayo. For a period of some nine months during 1948, he was the first cleanly elected president in his country's history. His novel Doña Bárbara was first published in 1929, and it was because of the book's critiques of the regime of longtime dictator Juan Vicente Gómez that he was forced to flee the country. He took refuge in Spain, where he continued to write. His acclaimed novels Cantaclaro (1934) and Canaima (1935) date from this period. He returned to Venezuela in 1936 and was appointed Minister of Public Education. In 1937 he was elected to Congress and, in 1940–41, served as Mayor of Caracas. In 1945, Rómulo Gallegos was involved in the coup d'état that brought Rómulo Betancourt and the "Revolutionary Government Junta" to power, in the period known as El Trienio Adeco. In the 1947 general election he ran for the presidency of the republic as the Acción Democrática candidate and won in what is generally believed to be the country's first honest election. He took over 74 percent of the vote, still a record for a free election in Venezuela. He was thrown out of power by a coup led by Colonel Përez Jiménez and returned to Venezuela after the ouster of the military regime.

William Pène du Bois (Author and Illustrator)
New York: The Viking Press, 1954. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good +/good +. First printing, octavo size, 125 pp., with original pencil sketch on the front endpapers, inscribed by William Pène du Bois. William Pène du Bois' (1916-1993) demonstrates his expertise in both writing and illustrating in this charming volume; Pène du Bois won the Newbery Medal for "The Twenty-One Balloons" in 1948, and, for books he illustrated, he was the runner-up for the Caldecott Medal twice. Pène du Bois brings a delightful visual interpretation to stories of imaginative, far-off lands, with elements of science mixed with the fantasy. "The Giant" tells of the difficulties of a boy who stands seven stories high, and how, with the help of the narrator, he finds his place in the world; the book is replete with Pène du Bois' spontaneous and playful illustrations, showing the creative ways that El Muchacho interacts with a landscape that simply cannot contain him. In addition to the lovely illustrations that fill the book, this volume has an original pencil sketch by Pène du Bois on the free endpapers, of a giant cat (in keeping with the theme of the story) stomping through a town, with the inscription "Run for your lives! / Joby(?) Giant / with love for Barbara / Billy Pène du Bois"; a unique example of Pène du Bois' effortless and playful style of illustration. ___DESCRIPTION: Quarter red cloth with grey cloth boards, front board with dark grey pattern of a fingerprint, grey lettering on the spine, doublespread title page with bla … [Click Below for Full Description]

Matted and framed, the entire piece measures 33 inches by 26 inches. Peter Drucker is widely credited with creating management as a formal discipline. In 1954, he published the first book that defined business management, The Practice of Management. Before this book, there was no coherent body of management knowledge, and only two or three books even addressed management issues. When it comes to the quality aspects of management, Drucker has established several ideas of importance to quality professionals. His concepts span from defining the purpose of a business to challenging leadership to manage information more effectively. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Ardis J. Barbee, Wife To Cecil R. Barbee
Los Angeles: Coca-Cola Franchisee, Los Angeles, California, 1954-1958. Hardcover. On offer is a wonderful 5 year diary kept by the wife of the Executive Vice-President of one of America's iconic corporations, Coca-Cola. The diary covers the years 1954 through 1958. The author of this diary is Ardis J. Barbee. She was born in 1907. Her adult life was spent in California, where she lived in Beverly Hills. She passed away in 1996 at the age of 89. She was 47 when she began this diary. Although her full name is not inscribed in the book, context clues confirm irrefutably that she is the author. Ardis Barbee married Cecil R. Barbee in 1949. He was born in Manhattan in 1889. At some point, he moved west to California. There, in 1923, he and his brothers purchased the Coca-Cola franchise for the city of Los Angeles and the surrounding area within a 50 mile radius. According to corporate records, he served as Executive Vice-President. The company was very successful. In 20 years, the Barbees had grown the business to 6 plants with some 575 employees. Sales were in the millions. Although Cecil was a very serious businessman, his 2 younger brother Stanley and Algernon, live flamboyant lives. Stanley, as President, was responsible for the construction of the company's head office - a nautical-themed building that remains an iconic location in Los Angeles to this day. Cecil Barbee was also an inventor with at least three patents to his name. From Ardis' diary, the reader can see that they lived well: "Didn't go to club today.

Corporal Stephan, who represents the reincarnation of Jesus, orders 3,000 troops to disobey orders to attack in the brutally repetitive trench warfare. In return, the Germans do not attack, and the war stops when soldiers realize that it takes two sides to fight a war. The Generalissimo, who represents leaders who use war to gain power, invites his German counterpart to discuss how to restart the war. He then arrests and executes Stefan. Before Stefan's execution, the Generalissimo tries to convince the corporal that war can never be stopped because it is the essence of human nature. ---------- About the Author ---------- William Faulkner, (1897-1962) was one of the most i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Morgan, Dale L. and Wheat, Carl I.
San Francisco: California Historical Society (printed by Lawton Kennedy), 1954. Limited Edition. One of 530 copies, elephant folio size, 92 pp., with prospectus. Jedediah Smith (1799-1831) was the most widely traveled Western explorer and accomplished cartographer of his era. In this authoritative volume, presented by two noted historians of Western cartography, seven of Smith's maps are reproduced, his impact is discussed at length with the aid of a newly discovered map, his itineraries are reexamined, and his overall scientific contributions are for the first time considered. The newly discovered map was "fortunately uncovered in 1953 by Mr. Wheat in the collections of the American Geographical Society, in New York, [and] affords the closest and most comprehensive view of Jedidiah Smith's own map ever likely to be had, short of the discovery of the long-vanished original." (N.B., from prospectus.) Carl Wheat is likely best-known for his massive work "Mapping the Transmississippi West", which was published three years after this work, in 1957. This the "Special Publication Number 26" of the California Historical Society, beautifully printed by Lawton Kennedy. ___DESCRIPTION: Original full red cloth stamped in gilt on backstrip, fore-edge uncut, seven fold-out maps (three larger maps are folded and slipped into a pocket at the rear); elephant folio size (17 3/8" by 11 1/8"), pagination: [i-vi] 1-86 pp., limited edition of 530 copies. Original prospectus loosely laid in, one large sheet folded to four pages, in black and red. ___CONDITION: A near fine copy, internally bright … [Click Below for Full Description]

William Golding
William Golding (1954) 'Lord of the Flies', UK first edition, fifth impression from 1960. Signed and inscribed by Golding to Jeremy Scuse, the child actor who played Rowland in the 1963 film adaptation. Golding also penned the number 675 after Jeremy Scuse. Condition: a very good copy. No other inscription, no scribbles, no annotations within the book, no bookplates, no stamps etc. No foxing. The boards are slightly rubbed at the edges and have a little soiling/ darkening in some places. The endpapers show a little ghosting from the dust jacket flaps. The dust jacket is the correct fith print jacket with edge wear as shown. A very scarce signed copy with a wonderful association! This is a scarce signed book that contributed to Golding winning the Nobel Prize. It is read in schools, a timeless classic, and inspiration for generations of aspiring authors (Stephen King named it his number one pick). A signed first printing fetches a handsome five-figure some these days, so a signed low reprint is a more affordable alternative and with this wonderful association this is a rare find! The first print run was with about 3,000 copies very low and the book initially a slow sale. When EM Forster gave his seal of approval calling the novel "not only a first-rate adventure but a parable of our times" sales picked up. With the 1963 film adaptation interest in Golding increased substantially. Eventually, the book sold over ten million copies, with over 100,000 copies sold annually! The publication history is of great interest. Lord of Flies was rejected multiple times and it would have b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Corporal Stephan, who represents the reincarnation of Jesus, orders 3,000 troops to disobey orders to attack in the brutally repetitive trench warfare.

The Generalissimo, who represents leaders who use war to gain power, invites his German counterpart to discuss how to restart the war. He then arrests and executes Stefan. Before Stefan's execution, the Generalissimo tries to convince the corporal that war can never be stopped because it is the essence of human nature. ---------- About the Author ---------- William Faulkner, (1897-1962) was one of the most i … [Click Below for Full Description]

William Golding
very good plus in a very good dj. William Golding (1954) Lord of the Flies. The true UK first edition and first printing, published by Faber and Faber. One of the defining landmark novels of 20th century fiction. A hand signed autograph is loosely laid in. Condition of the book: at least very good. There are no previous owners' inscriptions, no bookplates and no stamps inside the book. No foxing. The boards are red and vibrant in their colour. The lettering on the spine is NOT rubbed out as often seen. Usual toning to paper commensurate with age. The first state dust jacket is NOT price clipped bearing the 12s 6d net price as called for, and features the following: the 'John O' London's Book Of The Month' blurb on the front flap, and the rear flap of dust jacket is completely devoted to review blurbs for the book 'Christ Recrucified' by Nikos Kazantzakis. The jacket is very good with no pieces missing and no tears. A little edge to tips of spine wear as shown, toned with minor soiling. The spine has been strengthened by brown tape. This could be removed by a professional. William Golding's signature is handwritten by the author on a card underneath a small reproduction of a portrait painting by Adrian George (1986), located in the National Portrait Gallery. The book contributed greatly to Golding's 1983 Nobel Prize in Literature and regularly features the top 100 lists of the greatest novels of the 20th century. It is read in schools, a timeless classic, and inspiration for generations of aspiring authors (Stephen King named it his number one pick).
