PROKOSCH, Frederic
(Frederic Prokosch), Hong Kong, 1956. First edition. Decorate and correugated paper self-wrappers with printed gold foil label. 24mo. Fine. Out of a total edition of 44 copies, this is copy in unnumbered and designated by Prokosch as the "Author's Copy". Inscribed by the author. Extra label tipped-in. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. Rare. *OCLC* locates five copies in institutions.

[Japanese-American Photographica]
[Various places, including California, 1956. 160 photographs and photographic greeting cards, ranging from 1 1/2 x 1 inches to 8 x 10 inches. Quarto. Contemporary photograph album, marbled paper over beveled boards, front board stamped in silver. Boards detached and worn, binding broken in one place. Some photographs loose, all in generally nice condition. Very good overall. A significant collection of vernacular photographs capturing the lives of an unidentified Japanese-American family before and after the World War II internment period, with at least one image identified from Tule Lake Relocation Center. The album consists of the traditional range of subjects and activities recorded in family photograph albums: baby pictures; families on the front stoops of houses and at dinner; children at home, on tricycles, and at school; people in yards and gardens; holiday pictures; and more. In one image, a young Japanese-American male is shown in a military uniform. Many of the photographs are annotated - sometimes in English and just as often in Japanese. In fact, a small percentage of the photographs likely feature family and friends back in Japan. The present album is enhanced by a handful of photographically-illustrated Christmas cards from family friends. These families are variously identified as "The Shiotsu Family" (three cards), "The Bob Kuriyama Family," and the Tanakas. The families identify themselves through their annotations. There is also a photo- illustrated remembrance card for Sgt. Jimmie Mayemura, who was killed in the Korean War on November 8, 1951. The … [Click Below for Full Description]

FLEMING, Ian Lancaster (1908-1964)
London: Jonathan Cape, 1956. FIRST EDITION, First Impression, Binding A. Octavo, 257 pp. Publisher's black cloth-effect paper over boards, titled in silver, in pictorial dustwrapper designed by Pat Marriott, housed in a quarter leather clamshell box. An ASSOCIATION COPY, formerly belonging to Sefton Delmer, a fellow intelligence agent, journalist colleague and close friend of Ian Fleming. Delmer bookplate (Valley Farm) to pastedown. A used copy, showing some general wear and handling but with a wonderful association; Delmer himself is characterized on page 23, as a boyfriend of James Bond's secretary Lil. The young reporters Delmer and Fleming met in Moscow in the 'thirties and they would soon work closely together in Naval Intelligence. After the war, they took similar career paths, with Delmer becoming Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent for the Daily Express and Fleming joining The Sunday Times as their Foreign Manager. In a typed statement, Sefton Delmer records "He [Fleming] was the godfather of my son. 'Call him Felix' he had said, 'there are too many Felix's in this world'. And he followed his own advice by creating an American partner for James Bond called Felix Leiter" [source: Ian Fleming Bibliographical Archive].

BOILEAU, Pierre and NARCEJAC, Thomas
London Hutchinson, 1956. 1st English Language Edition, 1st Impression. 13.3 x 20.4 cm red boards with gilt stamped titles to the spine 192pp, in a 2nd state jacket (being the 1st state jacket clipped of its 10/6 price and with a 12/6 net price added at the bottom of the front flap). The book has been well protected by its dust jacket and is clean, with firm sharp corners and bright titles. Internally there is no name inscription or bookplate and the book appears unread. There is the merest hint of toning on the free endpapers where the jacket does not reach. The dust jacket, which is now protected in a removable clear cover (not shown in our images), is in excellent condition. The colours are bright and there is just a touch of marking to the rear panel. There is a short tear of 8mm running up from the bottom of the front joint and a faint tape mark (but no tape) on the verso of the jacket at the foot of the spine that extends onto the bottom edge of the front panel but that is barely discernible. All in all a fabulous looking book that was the basis for the 1958 film 'Vertigo' directed by Alfred Hitchcock and staring James Stewart and Kim Novak. Rainford & Parris Books welcomes enquiries, so please do not hesitate to ask if you require further images or have any questions. All books are packaged with great care.

J.R.R. Tolkien
London: Used with wear and tear. Allen and Unwin. 1956, 57, 57 impressions 5,5,3. A lovely first edition set, above average condition jackets and books for the age. These early impressions are increasingly hard to find without much more wear and tear, especially to the dust jackets. This set is in exceptional condition compare with how they are usually found. You can tell the books and jackets have been kept together by the uniform wearing and aging patterns. Now an extremely rare set, especially with the first ever slipcase! This set has had no restoration and alterations as is happening more and more. We feel these early editions are more authentic as-is, with warts and all. None of the usual tattering to jacket spine ends and corners, though darkening to the spines, with lighter color spots (see photos). This darkening is from exposure of light and damp to the spines as the covers are protected when on a shelf. FotR is 1956 5th impression has a 7th impression dust jacket. (It was normal practice for the publisher to spare dust jackets, earlier and later). There is no serious flaws to any of the books. However, what makes this set so special is the slipcase. Autumn of 1957 was the first time you could buy all three titles together, with the first ever produced slipcase. This is the true first edition set as you could never buy the first three printings of each book together, (1,1,1) as they were printed over nearly two years. A true first edition set with the qualifier of "the first time all three books were sold together as a "set"! While the construction and features of … [Click Below for Full Description]

The letter is to author and publisher Desmond Flower and reads, "Thank you so much for your letter sending me the agenda you have prepared for the luncheon on April 23. It seems to me an excellent arrangement, and I am looking forward to the occasion very much. The weather has not been good, but I have had a very pleasant stay here. I return to England on April 10."

In July of 1917, Prime Minister David Lloyd George appointed Churchill Minister of Munitions.

He made repeated trips to France, visiting the Front and meeting with French political leaders, including its Prime Minister, Georges Clemenceau. After the war, in 1919 Lloyd George moved Churchill to the War Office as both Secretary of State for War and Secretary of State for Air. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

C. S. Lewis
London: Geoffrey Bles. Till We Have Faces ~ by C. S. LEWIS ~ First British Edition ~ 1st Printing 1956. Shipped with USPS Media Mail. Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis. A first edition and true first printing (stated) as this is the Geoffrey Bles 1956 UK version. This is the author's last novel, and widely considered to be his most mature and was written in conjunction with his wife, Joy Davidman. The novel retells the story of Cupid and Psyche, based on the telling in a chapter of The Golden Ass of Apuleius. Evidently, the story had haunted Lewis his entire life as he felt the actions of the characters were illogical. Ergo, his retelling features a highly developed character in the narrator, drawing the reader into her reasoning and emotions. Lewis considered this novel to be his best and most accomplished work. His friend and author J. R. R. Tolkien (to whom he earlier dedicated The Screwtape Letters to) agreed with him. Fine book with neat and small gift inscription and toning to the endpaper where the jacket folds over. Binding straight, taut and very well preserved. Seems barely read. Fine, unclipped dustjacket with trivial shelfwear. A superb example of this work by a wonderful author. [Attributes: First Edition]

J.R.R. Tolkien
London: Used with wear and tear. Allen and Unwin. 1956, 57, 57 impressions 5,5,3. A lovely first edition set, above average condition jackets and books for the age. These early impressions are increasingly hard to find without much more wear and tear, especially to the dust jackets. This set is in exceptional condition compare with how they are usually found. You can tell the books and jackets have been kept together by the uniform wearing and aging patterns. Now an extremely rare set, especially with the first ever slipcase! This set has had no restoration and alterations as is happening more and more. We feel these early editions are more authentic as-is, with warts and all. None of the usual tattering to jacket spine ends and corners, though darkening to the spines, with lighter color spots (see photos). This darkening is from exposure of light and damp to the spines as the covers are protected when on a shelf. FotR is 1956 5th impression has a 7th impression dust jacket. (It was normal practice for the publisher to spare dust jackets, earlier and later). There is no serious flaws to any of the books. However, what makes this set so special is the slipcase. Autumn of 1957 was the first time you could buy all three titles together, with the first ever produced slipcase. This is the true first edition set as you could never buy the first three printings of each book together, (1,1,1) as they were printed over nearly two years. A true first edition set with the qualifier of "the first time all three books were sold together as a "set"! While the construction and features of … [Click Below for Full Description]

King, Jr., Dr. Martin Luther
Cleveland, Ohio: Stephens' Recording Service (also known as Memo Records), 1956. Fine. 33 1/3 rpm vinyl record in cardboard sleeve measuring 12¼" x 12 1/8. Approximately 43 minutes of audio. Record fine, sleeve very good with moderate edge wear and scattered instances of light dust soiling. Background This is a vinyl recording of a Martin Luther King, Jr. speech. Until now, as we explain below, the voices embedded in its grooves have been lost to history. King gave this speech to the National Negro Funeral Directors Association ("NNFDA") on August 7, 1956. He was just 27 years old at the time. 1955 saw him complete his first year as pastor at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, welcome his first child and the Montgomery bus boycott began that December. By the time of this speech King was still in the midst of the boycott despite the United States Supreme Court making segregation on public transportation illegal in April. He was becoming a national figure by this point but was still unknown to many.The recording exists because one of the attendees of the NNFDA banquet, Carlton Stephens, a metallurgical engineer, recorded the speech and wanted to share it with friends. He wrote King in September, 1956 asking permission to produce and sell a record of the speech, offering to donate profits to the Montgomery Improvement Association ("MIA").In December he reported to King that he ordered one thousand copies and asked for suggestions on distribution. While King's staff responded within a week to acknowledge Stephens' letter, there is no correspondence reflecting whethe … [Click Below for Full Description]
