        A FABLE

      New York: Random House, 1954. First edition. Fine/Fine. A Fine copy of the book in like dust jacket. The jacket has a small stain on the rear panel, otherwise a very sharp copy. William Faulkner's 1954 novel, which won both the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize, "A Fable" took Faulkner over ten years to write. Set in World War I - and inspired closely by the life of Jesus - the novel is about Corporal Stephan, who's actions end up bringing a halt to the war. "Whatever its "sources," if such these be, Faulkner has stamped 'A Fable' as his own. His method of delayed revelation is present in extreme form and will make difficult reading for some and exciting reading for others. His style, at times very demanding of the reader, rises often to magnificence." (Contemporary New York Times review). Fine in Fine. dust jacket.

        Pym College

      Np [BBC], London 1954 - 29 mimeographed pp., secured with split pin to top left. A little dusty and darkened, pencilled name to title page. A very good copy. First edition. AN UNTRANSMITTED PILOT SHOW FOR A SERIES WHICH WAS NEVER MADE. THE RECORDING OF THIS SHOW IS NOW LOST. Pilot script, recorded on 2 March 1954. Written and starring Rex Dawe, and featuring Peter Butterworth, Graham Stark, David Jacobs and Ann Lancaster. The show began life in Australia with the title The Fourth Form at St. Percy's, and later Yes, What? It ran for 520 episodes with Dawe in the lead, and was itself based on Will Hay's radio series of the 1920s, The Fourth Form at St. Michael's. No transmission date appears on the script, and no record of its transmission has been found. Certainly, no series was ever made. Occasional pencil revisions throughout, presumably made by the same person who, infuriatingly, has written his/her name illegibly on the title page. Extremely rare, and possibly the sole survivor.

The below is taken from 'The Diary of Sir Raymond Streat, Volume 2 1948: "Monday, January 5th On board R.M.S Mauretania. One day is much the same as another on board a great liner. There is consequently very little to add. Two evenings I have played bridge in the Captain's cabin with the Captain as my partner and Viscountess Rothermere and Ian Fleming as opponents. The gossip-mongers suspect an affair between these two, but it is no business of mine and they play bridge entertainingly."

        Staff Report No. 4 - Summary of Activities of the Carnegie Corporation of New York, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, The Rockefeller Foundation,The Rockefeller Gen'l Education Board

      USA Special Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations - House of Representatives, H. Res. 217 (The Reece Committee) 1954. A document which should have rocked the USA to its core but was squelched by the very powers it exposed. In the course of her duties as legal analyst for the Committee, Kathryn Casey was granted access to the archived minutes of the board of directors of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. According to the Committee's Research Director Norman Dodd, it was here that Ms. Casey discovered the board's conclusion that the best way to create world government, and permanent peace, was to involve the United States in a terrible war. The Reece Committee and its findings came to prominence decades later when Norman Dodd, Research Director for the Committee, came forward with stunning revelations of the Committee's findings.
