        The Cretan Runner: His Story of the German Occupation

      John Murray, 1955. John Murray, 1955. 1st edition. Hardcover. The green boards are in very good condition, a tiny crimp to the lower front corner, with good square binding. The pages and endpapers are all very clean indeed, all maps and photographs present and correct. The dustjacket is not price-clipped, has minuscule wear at two corners and the heel of the spine, and the white rear panel is very clean. All in all, this is a Very Near Fine example of the author's fascinating account of his experiences in wartime Crete, made all the more significant by Patrick Leigh Fermor's translation and introduction. Very scarce in this condition.

        The Mint

      th Later Notes by 352087 A/c Ross, 1955. th Later Notes by 352087 A/c Ross, 1955 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A limited copy, numbered 1485 of 2000 in ink to front and in original slipcase. The Mint is a book written by T. E. Lawrence, Lawrence of Arabia, and published posthumously. It is notable for its sharp observation, for the insight it gives into Lawrence himself, and for the censorship issues around its publication. First edition. When The Mint was finally published in 1955 there were two editions, the expurgated edition and a limited edition containing the full uncensored text. The Mint concerns the period following the First World War when Lawrence decided to disappear from public view. He enlisted in the Royal Air Force under an assumed name, becoming 352087 Aircraftman Ross. The book is a closely observed autobiographical account of his experiences in the RAF. The book is divided into three parts with a note by A. W. Lawrence preceding the first: Part I: The Raw Material; Part II: In the Mill; Part III: Service. Lawrence stated that the book should not be published until after his death; in the prefatory note by his brother, A. W. Lawrence, who edited the text for publication, a letter from T. E. Lawrence to E. M. Forster is summarised he felt unable to publish the book because of 'the horror the fellows with me in the force would feel at my giving them away. . . so The Mint shall not be circulated before 1950. Lawrence's brother took the further precaution of substituting new names in the expurgated edition for characters in A/c Ross's squad in all passages which might have caused embarrassment or distress. Condition: In a quarter morocco binding with cloth covered boards with original paper covered slipcase. Externally, in a lovely condition with only the odd slight mark. Slipcase has slight wear to extremities, rubbing and marks. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and generally clean but with slight scattered foxing, predominantly to endpapers. Overall: NEAR FINE in a VERY GOOD slipcase.

        A Night To Remember (Signed & Inscribed to Movie Mogul David Wallerstein)

      New York : Henry Holt & Co., 1955. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good. From an auction of modern first editions and the collection of Caroline Reiser and John Rau--a superb copy of the first printing in near fine condition--in an unclipped and very good dustjacket. This copy is signed on the ship diagrammed front free endpaper--and additionally inscribed to Theatre Chain Movie Mogul and Disney Board member David Wallerstein--who lived in Chicago and married to Caroline Rau, whose collection this copy comes from. Wallerstein is best known for serving on the board of Disney and ABC and for initially being President of Balaban and Katz--a Midwest movie theatre chain. Wallerstein is also known for two other tidbits of history-- introducing the world to "Supersize" fries and for suggesting to Walt Disney to read a book called "Mary Poppins"--for a potential movie. The inscription reads "For David Wallerstein, with best wishes from an author who is 100% sold on the picture!"--Walter Lord. Wallerstein and Rau were in attendance (along with Lord) at the Chicago premier of the film--which starred Kenneth More. The film is held in high regard today for it's taut suspense of the most dramatic news story in History--and Lord's book is equally held in high regard. This superb copy has been in storage many years and only recently offered up by John Rau --the son of Caroline Reiser. A near fine copy with just a little dustiness and slight fading to the deep blue top stain--along with just very shallow edgewear to the tips--otherwise would be fine. Absolutely no other evidence of previous ownership. The dustjacket is complete and unclipped--a lovely bright unfaded DJ--with shallow edgewear to the upper extremities--and more moderate edgewear to the bottom extremities - along with some paper loss to the mid bottom front about the size of a dime--otherwise the two flaps are fine and the back panel shows only light age toning. 209 total pages with index. $3.50 price on front flap. Just a lovely signed copy with a very scarce Walter Lord signature and dedicated to a prominent businessman with ties to the entertainment industry. Additional Digital photos available upon request.

        Lolita

      Paris: Olympia Press, 1955.. Paris: Olympia Press, 1955. First edition of Nabokov's masterpiece, published in Paris by the Olympia Press in 1955. First issue with the price of 900 francs on the rear panel of each volume. Octavo, 2 volumes, original green wrappers. In near fine condition with light wear to the extremities. Brilliant… One of the funniest and one of the saddest books that will be published this year" (New York Times). "Lolita blazes with a perversity of a most original kind. For Mr. Nabokov has distilled from his shocking material hundred-proof intellectual farce…Lolita seems an assertion of the power of the comic spirit to wrest delight and truth from the most outlandish materials. It is one of the funniest serious novels I have ever read; and the vision of its abominable hero, who never deludes or excuses himself, brings into grotesque relief the cant, the vulgarity, and the hypocritical conventions that pervade the human comedy" (Atlantic Monthly).

        Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

      New York: New Directions, 1955.. New York: New Directions, 1955. First edition, first issue. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Tennesse Williams on the front free endpaper. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing to the extremities. Rare signed. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof first heated up Broadway in 1955 with its gothic American story of brothers vying for their dying father's inheritance amid a whirlwind of sexuality, untethered in the person of Maggie the Cat. The play also daringly showcased the burden of sexuality repressed in the agony of her husband, Brick Pollitt. In spite of the public controversy Cat stirred up, it was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and the Drama Critics Circle Award for that year. "Tennessee Williams never wrote a more explosive play than Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" (Howard Kissel).

        Quelques Sonnets de Ronsard

      (Segonzac, Andre Dunoyer de); Ronsard, Pierre de. Quelques Sonnets de Ronsard. Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1955. With 51 original etchings by Segonzac. Copy #49 with a suite on Japon, numbered and signed by the artist. (Total edition 210: 35 copies with two suites; 40 copies as this with a suite on Japon; 125 regular copies; 15 hors commerce). Laid in is an original pen and ink drawing of a reclining girl in lingerie by Segonzac, inscribed "pour les gourments de Ronsand and signed A. Dunoyer de / Segonzac." Folio (10 1/2 x 13"; 25, 5 x 32 cm.) Bound in blue morocco with covers decorated in a renaissance style frame created entirely out of pointelle, from which sprigs of acanthus leaves sprout. Smooth spine ornamented in gilt and in pointelle. A simple yet exuberant binding. Mauve suede endpapers. According to Strachan, the classical tradition of book illustration reflected in the works of Rodin and Maillol is represented in Quelques' Sonnets, yet this "charming interpretation of the Renaissance poet" links tradition with innovation "with a free, sketch-like idiom" to the etchings. Segonzac, in "j'ai pense a illustrer les sonnets de Ronsard", comments that he chose the subject of Ronsard's poetry after completing the illustrations to the Georgiques of Virgil. For his edition of Ronsard, Segonzac wanted a subject of delicate sensibility, elegance without affection and restrained sensuality. Segonzac worked eight years on the Ronsard from 1948 till 1956. For this edition, he enlisted the master printer Jacques Fr?ut, who had printed the edition of Virgil's Georgiques. These etchings show on the whole a slightly more formalized style compared with those of the Georgiques. The text was printed in 24 pt Garamont Italique by L'imprimerie Nationale and the etchings printed by Jaques Frelaut on the presses of Roger Lacouriere. All the plates were engraved in 1954 and defaced after printing. Binding by Therese Moncey, with Fache as doreur. Moncey's beautiful bindings have won le grand prix de la reliure francaise in 1950 and succeeded in numerous exhibitions. She has always used the great gilders "doreurs"of the period such as Fache.

        Memoirs. Year of Decisions and Years of Trial and Hope

      Doubleday & Company, Inc. 1955 - Doubleday & Company, Inc. 1955 & 1956, Garden City, 1955. Hardcover. First Edition. Two volumes. A special and obviously limited edition of this book bound in full blue cloth with gilt-lettered black spine labels, rather than the black cloth of the regular and Kansas City editions, and also larger in size than those editions (6" x 9-1/2"). Both volumes in fine condition, publisher's slipcases in very good condition. This edition appears to have been reserved for the author's use and presented by the President to those close to him. Each book is INSCRIBED warmly and at great length (the longest Truman inscription in a book we have ever seen) and SIGNED by the author to Leslie L. Biffle, who served twice as Secretary of the U. S. Senate. Evidently he played a key role in securing the Vice President nomination for Harry S. Truman in 1944. After FDR died, Truman came to rely on Biffle for information regarding goings-on in the Senate. There was a dedicated phone line between the two men's desks. During one press conference, Truman declared: "They don't make them any better than Biffle. And you can quote me on that." When Biffle died in 1966, Senator John L. McClellan announced it on the floor of the US Senate, mourning the loss of a "true patriot and one of America's finest citizens." In addition each book is housed in its original slipcase, each of which the President has also INSCRIBED and SIGNED to Biffle. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Couverture imprimée en noir et jaune (rayures verticales). ÉDITION ORIGINALE. Publiée au milieu des années 50 par Eric Losfeld. Les illustrations sont de Jean Boullet. L'ouvrage se vendait 3.600 francs d'après Dutel. Ouvrage condamné pour la première fois le 24 octobre 1957. Référence : Dutel, 2002 ; Pia, 849 Madame de V. s'est ennuyée pendant trop longtemps aux côtés de monsieur de V., de 20 ans son aîné. Toutes ces années, elle ne dut qu'à son savoir-faire tout le plaisir qu'elle retira de la vie. Aussi, au décès de l'aïeul, la jeune femme à peine éclose aux choses de l'amour décide-t-elle de rattraper le temps perdu. Sa quête, loin d'être spirituelle, débute en 1917 dans les bras de Doudou, par l'apprentissage studieux des préceptes et des positions du "Kama Sutra". De ce jeune soldat noir, blessé au combat, madame de V. conserve le souvenir impérissable d'un membre tellement vigoureux qu'aucun autre homme après lui ne peut plus la combler. De désespoir, le corps tiraillé par le désir, madame de V. s'exile en terre africaine où, dans les ruelles sombres de Dakar, elle recherche sans ménager sa peine l'étalon qui saura la satisfaire. » (Présentation de la réédition chez Pocket, 2001) "Aussi le lendemain, après avoir refermé à clef la porte de la chambre, troussa-t-elle ses jupes sans dire un mot, offrant à l'homme une belle paire de fesses autour d'un mignon trou du cul, enduit auparavant de crème parfumée, car elle redoutait un peu la grosseur de cet instrument que les Noirs appellent curieusement un "zob" et les gens du commun un "paf". Elle n'attendit pas longtemps. Une boule chaude vint s'appliquer sur la raie de son cul et aidée par la crème et les soubresauts d'un ventre nerveux, pénétra en elle, comme une flèche de feu." (extrait) Les illustrations au trait sont très puissantes. BEL EXEMPLAIRE DE CE RARE CLANDESTIN ILLUSTRÉ, TEL QUE PARU. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
