        The Ginger Man

      Olympia Press, Paris 1955 - 8vo, pp. 353. Original green stiff card wrappers, lettered in black to panels and spine. Very light indentations to rear panel (see below), otherwise an absolutely fine, unread copy. First edition, first issue of the author's first novel, without the green border to title page, and with the earlier price ('Francs: 1.500') to rear panel. The Ginger Man had been rejected by upwards of thirty publishers on the grounds of obscenity before finding a home in Paris with Maurice Girodias' Olympia Press, for whom its obscenity was its chief appeal. Donleavy was delighted to have found a publisher, and delighted to have found one who had recently published work by Beckett, Bataille and Genet. He was less delighted when The Ginger Man appeared in 1955, on a list including books called White Thighs, The Whip Angels, and The Sexual Life Of Robinson Crusoe -- all of which were advertised in the back of his book. Massive litigation and counter-litigation followed, conducted in a number of countries and over two decades, and when the dust finally settled not only had Donleavy won the rights to his book back, but he also owned the Olympia Press. All of which sometimes overshadows the fact that The Ginger Man is the brilliant debut of a major talent which, in 1998, was voted by the Modern Library one of the 100 best novels of the twentieth century. At some point in its life this copy found itself at the bottom of a pile of books held together by two elastic bands; this has left a very, very light pair of indentations to the rear panel. This aside the book is in superlative condition, absolutely fine and unread. Kearney: 7.7.1

        BRAIN WAVE

      Melbourne, London, Toronto: William Heinemann Ltd, [1955]. Melbourne, London, Toronto: William Heinemann Ltd,. [1955]. boards.. A fine copy in bright, very good dust jacket with shelf wear at spine. ends and corner tips with shallow loss at upper spine end and upper. corner tips, small abrasion to spine panel just below "WAVE," and. dust soiling to rear panel. Overall, an attractive copy of a book. that is quite scarce in superior condition. (#146080). First British (and first hardcover) edition. "BRAIN WAVE, perhaps his most famous single novel, remains very nearly his finest. Its premise is simple: for millions of years the part of the galaxy containing our solar system has been moving through a vast force field whose effect has been to inhibit "certain electromagnetic and electrochemical processes", and thus certain neuronic functions; it is a concept Vernor Vinge would exploit and expand in his A FIRE UPON THE DEEP (1992). When Earth escapes the inhibiting field, synapse-speed immediately increases, causing a rise in intelligence; after the book has traced various absorbing consequences of this transformation, a transfigured humanity reaches for the stars, leaving behind (it is a conclusion evocative of Clifford D. Simak at his best) former mental defectives and bright animals to inherit the planet." - John Clute, SFE (online). Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-22. Survey of Science Fiction Literature I, pp. 242-6.

        The Law at Randado [*SIGNED*]

      Houghton Mifflin Company 1955 (c.1954), Boston - [solid copy, moderately worn at corners and along bottom edge, somewhat heavier wear at spine extremities, bumping and cracking at both ends of spine (not extending more than 3/8-inch into the spine at any point, and not affecting the general solidity of the actual binding); the spine is a little bit turned, and the covers a little bit bowed, and the bottom edges of a few pages in the middle of the book are slightly ragged due to some irregular trimming; the original jacket (although not original to this copy of the book) is moderately edgeworn, with a dime-sized scraped area on the spine, and has been trimmed somewhat unevenly along the top and bottom edges, making it about 1/4" shorter than the book itself]. SIGNED by the author on the title page. A very decent copy of the rarest of the hardcover issues of this author's first three western novels -- this being his second, and also the true FIRST EDITION of this title. [The Dell paperback (#863) is usually listed by booksellers with a 1954 publication date (and occasionally described as a pb original), but in fact both of the standard paperback reference guides indicate that it was issued in early 1956, and thus was predated by this edition, which bears a 1955 title page date. The confusion probably arises because the two share a 1954 copyright date.] Bibliographic parsing aside, in terms of scarcity this title easily surpasses the original hardcovers of both "The Bounty Hunters" and " Escape from Five Shadows."

They were contemporaries and acquaintances at Oxford, with a number of mutual friends, though not close. "The relationship between the two men was edgy, perhaps best summarised by Waugh himself in a letter to Betjeman's wife on 7 January 1950 - 'My love to John. Though he does not love me as I love him.'" - A.N. Wilson (Betjeman) However, Betjeman's undergraduate eccentricity seemingly had one significant literary influence on Waugh. Betjeman famously brought his teddy bear, whom he had named Archibald Ormsby-Gore, up to Magdelen, carrying it wherever he went and talking of it as if it held its own views, "Archibald has accepted the Incumbency of Raum's Episcopal Chapel, Homerton, E. 17... He has always been associated with the Evangelical Party and he will have to wear a black gown in the pulpit..." It was this sort of flippant humour that lead his tutor, C.S. Lewis, to describe Betjeman in his diary as an "idle prig" who attended tutorials in "eccentric bedroom slippers". However, such antics undoubtedly formed the basis for Sebastian Flight's behaviour at Oxford in Waugh's Brideshead Revisited. After coming down from Oxford, Waugh and Betjeman remained friends. Waugh also formed a close and lifelong friendship with Betjeman's wife Penelope, whom he dedicated his novel Helena to and used her as the basis for the eponymous character. The Betjemans attended both Waugh's marriage to Laura and his funeral. Betjeman mentions receiving this presentation copy in a letter to Waugh of the 2 July 1955, "I came back the night before last... to find your new novel awaiting me and inscribed by you." It would appear that this book was given by Betjeman to his personal secretary at the time, Anita Dent. Betjeman was a friend of the Dent family and gave the toast at Anita's wedding in 1958. Accompanying the book is a letter of provenance from Anita Dent's son, Simon Coury, outlining the connection with Betjeman.

A complete transcript of the eight Nixon recordings is present, a total of 14,036 words! At times, Nixon references a hyphenated number. For example, in Nixon Recording 7, ìFive-nineteen - As I told you on the phone, I would prefer it if the Tom Jenkins anecdote not be used as a quote from me. I would carry it somewhat like this - Members of the Herter Committee unanimously give credit to Nixon for one vote for the Marshall Plan which otherwise would - which they had considered completely lost.î In Chapter Five of ìNixon,î on page 61, de Toledano writes, ìMembers of the Herter Committee unanimously give Nixon credit for one Marshall Plan vote they had not expected. Congressman Tom Jenkins of Ohioÿî De Toledano then tells the Tom Jenkins anecdote which Nixon told him on this recording. Just a few excerpts spoken by Nixon, just 164 of 14,036 words: ì[Joe] McCarthyís intentions appeared to me to be right, but his tactics were frankly so stupid at times that he eventually did our case more harm than good ÿ I think there has been a tendency to paint me as being a ñ quote ñ anti-intellectual ñ end quote and then to make the next obvious assumption that I have no intellectual background ÿ It might be interesting to point out that I have never had any formal training in public speaking ÿ It may be helpful to emphasize the fact that I take a rather liberal position with regard to the handling of the communist problem ÿ I came out strongly for the teaching of communism in schools ÿ I actually received an appointment to the FBI in 1938 but that because of a cut ÿthe new agents they intended to add that year were not put on ÿ Hoover, at least for this reason considers me to be quote one of his boys end quote, a designation which I am very proud to bearÿî Journalist and author Ralph de Toledano (1916-2007) joined ìNewsweekî in 1948. He first met then Congressman Richard Nixon when he was assigned to cover the trial of Alger Hiss who was accused of perjury related to charges that Hiss was a Soviet spy. De Toledano took the side of Whittaker Chambers, a ìTimeî magazine editor who was Hissís main accuser. He co-wrote a partisan book about the case, ìSeeds of Treason.î Later, in 1950, when de Toledano was covering Nixonís campaign for the Senate, Nixon routinely introduced him as an author of ìSeeds of Treasonî and had him speak to the crowds. De Toledano co-hosted the television talk show, ìOur Secret Weapon: The Truth,î from 1950-1951. From its founding in 1955, he was a regular contributor to the conservative magazine, ìNational Review,î founded by William F. Buckley in 1955, later serving as its editor. De Toledanoís obituary in ìThe Washington Postî was titled ìRalph de Toledano, 90; Ardent Conservative.î There are topics Nixon discusses that were not used by de Toledano in his book, and a few phrases didn't even make it to what was sent to de Toledano, as Nixon would tell his secretary to "strike that" after saying it or just repeat it in different words.

In his Nobel Prize autobiography, Prigogine recalls his great teachers, De Donder and Jean Timmermans and narrates the development of his broad approach to time and complexity which led to research far beyond the initial work in chemical thermodynamics. The 1955 Introduction marks his turn to a wider audience, which would eventually include researchers in biology, philosophy, systems, and information. **Deutsches Konto vorhanden.
