        The Kingdom of Earth with Hard Candy: A Book of Stories

      New Directions, [New York] 1954 - First edition. Signature and conjugate pages plus title leaf. Title leaf, 20p. (paginated as in the book). Fine. Prints the separate story "The Kingdom of Earth," prepared for insertion into copies of *Hard Candy: A Book of Stories* in order to complete the private, limited edition of 100 copies (and a few for presentation). Stated one of 100 copies. Because of its provocative content (a tubercular dandy dies while his ex-prostitute wife and his Cherokee half-brother ignore his pleas for help and instead have passionate sex in the next room), Williams was advised to remove the story from the collection *Hard Candy*. It did appear in much later collections, and he later adapted the story into both a play of the same name, and ultimately the longer play *The Seven Descents of Myrtle* (in which the half-brother is African-American rather than Native American). Rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Golda Meir Stresses the Need to Settle New Immigrants

      Jerusalem 1954 - Typed Letter Signed "Golda Meyerson" as Minister of Labour, to Yaakov Hazan. Jerusalem, October 23, 1954. 1 p., 6 x 8 in. In Hebrew on Ministry of Labour letterhead. Golda Meyerson (she would change her name to Meir in 1956), promotes the idea of Mapam (the Marxist United Workers' Party) joining Sharett's Mapai (Workers' Party) government. Hazan, the recipient, was one of Mapam's co-founders. Transcript"It is of highest importance that Mapam join the Government headed by [Moshe] Sharett. As I see it, the magnitude of this moment must overcome all the differences of opinion between us. It is incumbent upon Mapam to take part in and contribute to the settling of the new immigrants who have just arrived, according to the same philosophy which inspired us in Merhavia and Mishmar Ha-Emek in the 1920's, and which will motivate the cooperation between us in the 1950's. As a result, you will never be able to forgive yourselves for standing idly by in the face of the obvious challenges."

        Bericht von Jesus aus Nazareth. Tatsachen von gestern und heute.

      Berlin, Evangelische Haupt-Bibelgesellschaft, 1954.. [1. Auflage]. 8° (Rückenhöhe 21 cm). 83 Seiten. Gemusterter OPappband (angestaubt) mit Rückenbeschriftung, Deckelschild, Kopffarbschnitt. Leichte Gebrauchspurenkapitale und Ecken etwas bestoßen, Rücken am unteren Ende sauber geklebt.. *Otto Dibelius (1880-1967), deutscher evangelischer Theologe. Von 1899-1904 studierte er Theologie in Berlin, besonders bei Adolf von Harnack. Nach der Promotion zum Dr. phil. 1902 in Gießen und zum Lic. theol. in Berlin wurde er nach einem Studienaufenthalt in Schottland 1906 ordiniert und wirkte auf verschiedenen Pfarrstellen der altpreußischen Landeskirche, bis er 1925 Generalsuperintendent der Kurmark wurde. In seinem vielbeachteten Buch ""Das Jahrhundert der Kirche" (1926) verurteilte Dibelius aus einer preußisch-konservativen Grundhaltung die Revolution von 1918 politisch, da sie zum Zusammenbruch eines christlich fundierten Staatswesens geführt hatte. Auch seine sozialkritische Veröffentlichung "Frieden auf Erden" (1930), in der der Nichtpazifist sich aus christlicher Überzeugung konsequent gegen jede Verherrlichung des Krieges und für die Pflicht zu seiner Verhinderung einsetzte, entfachte eine rege öffentliche Diskussion. Unter der NS-Herrschaft wurde er nach anfänglichen nationalkonservativ eingefärbten Sympathien für den politischen Umbruch bereits im Juni 1933 durch das deutsch-christlich besetzte Kirchenregiment aller seiner Ämter enthoben. Sein Engagement galt nun angesichts der politischen und ideologischen Übergriffe durch den NS-Staat der Freiheit von Evangelium und Kirche. 1937 bewahrte ihn ein gerichtlicher Freispruch vor KZ-Haft. Im folgenden Jahr berief man Dibelius in das Leitungsgremium der Bekennenden Kirche Preußens. Nach Kriegsende wurde ihm das Bischofsamt der Evangelischen Kirche Berlin-Brandenburg übertragen, das er erst ein Jahr vor seinem Tod wieder abgab. Als Mitglied des vorläufigen Rats der Evangelischen Kirche in Deutschland war er im Oktober 1945 an der Formulierung des Stuttgarter Schuldbekenntnisses beteiligt. Von 1949-61 war er Ratsvorsitzender der EKD. Dibelius war einer der prägenden Gestalten der evangelischen Kirche im 20. Jahrhundert, dem weltweite Anerkennung zuteil wurde. 1958 wurde er Ehrenbürger von Berlin*

The Lord of the Rings is a fantasy trilogy, written as the sequel to Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit. It tells the story of the second attempt of the men, elves, and dwarves of Middle Earth to destroy the Dark Lord Sauron, the "Lord of the Rings." In The Hobbit, set almost 2,000 years after Sauron was initially vanquished, Hobbit Bilbo Baggins discovers Sauron's lost ring, which he used to control the inhabitants of Middle Earth vis-à-vis corrupt leaders whom he gave lesser rings to in order to gain power over them. In The Fellowship of the Ring, Bilbo leaves the ring to his nephew Frodo, who joins with a group of men, hobbits, dwarves, and elves on a quest to destroy it. In The Two Towers, Frodo and Sam continue alone on their increasingly perilous journey to destroy the ring while the remaining members of the Fellowship try to protect the realms of Middle Earth from the troops of Sauron, who continues to gain strength as Frodo brings the Ring closer. The Return of the King concludes the trilogy with the final destruction of Sauron and the reestablishment of proper order in the worlds of men and hobbits. Each volume is divided into two books and contains chapters narrated by different characters.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        The Woman Who Was No More

      New York: Rinehart and Company. (1954). First. First American edition. Page edges very slightly browned, still fine in fine dustwrapper. An exceptionally uncommon title, the first book by this French team to be published in the U.S. Basis for the classic Henri-Georges Clouzot film Les Diaboliques, with Simone Signoret and the director's wife Vera Clouzot, in which the two women conspire to murder their sadistic husband/lover. The film is arguably the best psychological thriller of all time, and one from which many of the conventions of the genre stem. Alfred Hitchcock, already well-established as the "Master of Suspense," was upset at having missed the film rights to this book and took special care to acquire the rights to Boileau and Narcejac's follow-up, which became Vertigo. Later remade several times, including a 1994 version with Sharon Stone and Isabelle Adjani. Translated from the French and published before the film was released, this had a very small print run, perhaps as few as a thousand copies. Considering the cheap leftover wartime materials employed, it is unlikely to have survived in any numbers. This is the nicest copy we've seen. .
