A timeless classic and a cornerstone of the fantasy genre, The Lord of The Rings follows the adventures of the hobbit Frodo Baggins and his compatriots as they battle the Dark Lord Sauron, and attempt to destroy the ring that gives him power over Middle Earth. Tolkien began writing the novel when he was 45 and it took him 12 years to finish it. (The Lord of the Rings would not be published until 1955.) The books, which were inspired by Tolkien's interest in subjects as far reaching as mythology and philology, went on to become a sensation - selling over 150 million copies and being translated into over 30 languages. W.H. Auden called The Lord of the Rings a "masterpiece", and it has appeared on Le Monde's list of the 100 best books of the century. The books were also adapted into the Oscar award winning film trilogy, directed by Peter Jackson and starring Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, and Viggo Mortensen. "...among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century." (Contemporary Sunday Telegraph Review). Near Fine in Near Fine. dust jacket.

        Autograph

      No date. A brochure from The Suffolk County Whaling Museum of Sag Harbor, Long Island, NY, printing the article "The Sag Harbor Whalers" by Clother Hathaway Vaughn. Signed by Steinbeck, who lived in Sag Harbor from 1955 until his death in 1968. A larger than usual Steinbeck signature, perhaps of the variety occasioned by someone asking for "an autograph" on a randomly available surface, as opposed to a more formal signing of one's work. 4" x 9" trifold brochure, now tipped to black cardstock. Fine. A nice memento connecting Steinbeck to his longtime, and last, home.

Life in Harlem may be hard; getting up each morning and going to work; knowing that today will be like yesterday and tomorrow. Yet there are rewards, moments - a man walking in the sun, a woman laughing, couples in the park, the watering of a garden on a window sill, a father's touch, a child's glance. We've had so many books about how bad life is, Langston Hughes says, maybe it's time to have one showing how good it is." An internally handsome example of the 1955 Simon & Schuster first paperbound edition of Langston Hughes' classic collaboration with noted photographer Roy DeCarava bearing the SIGNED PRESENTATION "July 26, 1959 / New York / To my friend + photographer, Mel / Roy DeCarava" in black in on the inside front cover whose edges of the textblock and wrappers show some typical light soiling, wear and age-toning. It has been priced accordingly.

        A Good Man Is Hard to Find

      New York: Harcourt, Brace & Company. (1955). First. First edition, first issue. Very slightly cocked, and a little rubbed, near fine in near very good first issue dustwrapper with only modest fading to the red portion of the spine, a couple of small chips, and dampstains on the rear panel. The author's masterpiece, her second book and first of short stories. A breathtaking collection of horror tales that probe the darkest heart of the South through the use of traditional "Southern Gothic" writing mixed with a nightmare vision seemingly derivative of German expressionism. A nice, presentable copy. .
