        The Lord of the Rings

      London: George Allen and Unwin, 1954-55 - Three volumes. Folding map in each volume. Return of the King is second state with sig. 4 and slipped type on p. 49 (this was formerly Hammond’s first state, but the bibliographer has revised his opinion). Original red cloth and printed dust jackets. Bookplate. Fine in very good fine dust jackets with slight wear, minor stains, tanning to the spines. An attractive set. FIRST EDITIONS, FIRST PRINTINGS. This is a very attractive set of the celebrated Lord of the Rings trilogy. The size of the edition was small: The Fellowship of the Ring (3000 copies), The Two Towers (3250 copies), and The Return of the King (7000 copies). Tolkien worked on this epic, not so much a trilogy as a long novel, from the publication of The Hobbit (1937) until the early 1950s. Beginning with the appearance of the second edition of 1966 and the nearly simultaneous appearance of the paperback edition in America, The Lord of the Rings became one of the best-selling works of fiction of the century. This is the “paradigmatic work of modern heroic fantasy. . . . Its success was not immediate, but its publication in paperback was an event sufficiently momentous to transform completely the market situation of heroic fantasy, and hence bring about a new era in its history. The Lord of the Rings made fantasy a significant publishing category and inspired a deluge of new works. The astonishing reception and influence of this work qualify it as one of the most remarkable literary phenomena of the 20th century” (Barron, ed., Fantasy Literature).

      New York: The Viking Press, 1954. First American Edition, 1st Printing. Hardcover. Good +/good +. Octavo, 281pp., illustrated. A good or better copy, gently soiled with mild wear at the spine ends. In a good or perhaps better dust jacket ($5.00 price intact) with some creasing and mild chipping along the extremities. Spine less sunned than usually seen on this title. A marvelous copy, SIGNED and INSCRIBED by Dornberger to Hans-Georg Clamann, a fellow German scientist who was (along with Dornberger) brought to the US in Operation Paperclip. The three-line inscription is in German and in a rather cryptic hand, but it is easy to read his note below the inscription: "Randolph Field, der 16 Juni 1955." Randolph Field is an Air Force base near San Antonio, which is appropriate, as both of these scientists were brought to the US in the custody of the Air Force just a few years earlier. Signed copies of this book are scarce, and the association makes this an even more desirable example. On a rear free blank there is a somewhat unexpected (considering the book's subject) pencil inscription in French, also dated 1955, with two pasted-in stickers: "Pour mon cheri Valentine 1955 de ta femme qui t'aime." It's unclear how, or if, this relates to the association above. Images of such available upon request.

"San Jose, with its dome and carved tower and embrasures, and huge barrel-vaulted granary was built as the grandest mission community of the five established by the Franciscans at San Antonio in the 18thc. Here the Spanish colonial baroque found its richest expression, as I saw on a spring morning when the first green was coming on the mesquite." - Paul Horgan (A Writer's Eye p. 44)Beautiful mat and framed under glass all like new. (Horgan won the Pulitzer for history in 1955 with his book "Great River: The Rio Grande in North American History" for which he made many field sketches during his research travels including San Jose Mission in San Antonio.

        The Lord of the Rings. Being: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King.

      London: George Allen and Unwin, 1954, 1954, 1955. [Fantasy classic]. FIRST EDITIONS, First impressions; signature '4' and 'sagging' type on p.49 of 'The Return', folding maps at rear of each volume. 3 volumes. Publisher's red cloth with gilt titles to spines, red tint to top edges, in original dust-wrappers. No inscriptions, bookplates or ownership marks, all prices present. Some toning/spotting to endpapers otherwise clean within, cloth lightly handled, red topstain unfaded. Jackets with uniform wear, a little toned to spines, lightly chipped/frayed to extremities, some discreet archival strips to reverse side simply to stabilise tears at folds (not in-filled, touched-up or re-coloured). Overall a natural, used set with a most respectable appearance. Following the hugely successful children's book 'The Hobbit' (1937), Tolkien found himself under intense pressure to produce a sequel, despite wanting to publish different stories from the vast mythological landscape he had been creating since encountering the 'Kalevala' in his teenage years. Eventually these two forces came together to produce the long-expected sequel, set amidst momentous events at the end of the Third Age of Middle Earth, together with many details of the languages, legends and pedigrees he had created from scratch in order fill what he considered a great hole in England's mythological past. Possibly the greatest Fantasy Novel the English-speaking world has yet seen. Hammond and Anderson [A5], listed in Time Magazine; 100 Best Modern Novels. Book Collector No.274, p58-9.

        Lee Oswald

      , [1954-1956]. [1954-1956]. Comprises 14 plastic white chess pieces: King, Queen, 2 Castles, 2 Knights, 1 Bishop, and 7 Pawns; 14 plastic red chess pieces: King, Queen, 2 Castles, 1 Knight, 2 Bishops, and 7 Pawns. The chess pieces are in generally fine condition. The Queens and the red King are each missing the felt at the hollow bottom. The original burgundy leather-textured box measures 6.5” x 4” x 2”. The bottom is worn. A gilt Knight is imprinted on the cover which is heavily worn at the hinge and is almost entirely detached from the box. The snap button is present on the front side but the strap attached to the cover which would fold over to the snap, closing the box, is missing. “TOURNAMENT / CHESSMEN / BY / LOWE” is embossed inside the cover.Lee Harvey Oswald’s mother, Mrs. Marguerite Oswald, testified before the President’s Commission on the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Washington, D.C., on the morning of February 12, 1964. Present were Chief Justice Earl Warren, Chairman; Representative Hale Boggs and Representative Gerald R. Ford, members. Also present were J. Lee Rankin, general counsel; Wesley J. Liebeler, assistant counsel; and John F. Doyle, attorney for Mrs. Marguerite Oswald. Excerpt from Mrs. Oswald’s testimony: “Lee played Monopoly. Lee played chess. Lee had a stamp collection, and even wrote to other young men and exchanged stamps, sir. And Lee read history books, books too deep for a child his age.”Excerpt from the sworn Affidavit of Mack Osborne to the Warren Commission dated May 18, 1964: “While I was in the United States Marine Corps, I served in Marine Air Control Squadron 9 in Santa Ana, California, with Lee Harvey Oswald. Prior to his discharge, I shared a room with him ... Oswald read a great deal, although I do not remember what sort of books he read. He also watched television and played chess.”Excerpt from the sworn Affidavit of Richard Dennis Call to the Warren Commission dated May 20, 1964: “From December, 1958, to December, 1959, I was stationed with Marine Air Control Squadron #9, Lighter Than Air Station, Santa Ana, California. During this time I made the acquaintance of Lee Harvey Oswald ... Oswald spent a great deal of time reading. I do not remember what he read, because he never talked about it. He also spent a great deal of time playing chess. I played chess with him about once a week; we were of approximately equal ability ... I had a chess set which contained red and white chessmen; Oswald always chose the red chessmen, making some remark to the effect that he preferred the ‘Red Army.’”Accompanied by a signed statement of Robert L. Oswald, brother of Lee Harvey Oswald: “To Whom It May Concern: My brother Lee was born in New Orleans in 1939. Lee and my mother moved back to New Orleans from New York City in January 1954 when Lee was 14. It was while he was living in New Orleans that my mother bought him a chess set with red and white pieces. When I was discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps in July 1955, I settled in Fort Worth, Texas. In the Summer of 1956, Mother and Lee moved from New Orleans to Ft. Worth where we shared an apartment. Over the years, four chess pieces were lost. I now transfer ownership of the remaining 28 chessmen, in the original ‘Tournament Chessmen by Lowe’ worn box, belonging to Lee to John Reznikoff of University Archives in Westport, Connecticut.”
