        Komplotterna. Affärerna Unman och Selling.

      - Stockholm; Bonniers, 1956. Originalupplaga. 19,5x13 cm. 59, (1) s. Häftad med tryckt omslag. Riss vid ryggfoten. Främre omslaget med lätt nötta kanter. Bakre omslag med två riss i yttermarginalen. Bra inlaga. Dedikation: "To Kristina with warmest wishes from the Author / 9/6 1956." This copy was inscribed in English. Vilhelm Moberg (1898-1973), Swedish journalist, social critic, and one of Sweden?s foremost authors of the 20th century. He was born in Algutsboda in the province of Småland, where his father served as a soldier. Moberg worked in his youth with farming and forestry. After a few years of schooling, he worked as a journalist at different provincial newspapers, in which he also published his first short stories. His breakthrough as an author came in 1927 with the novel ?Raskens. The Story of a Soldier?s Family?, where he depicts the life of the tenant farmers in 19th century Småland. His foremost work, which has been widely translated and is considered one of the finest epic works in Swedish 20th century literature, is ?The Emigrant Novels? (1949-1959). In this tetralogy he describes the Swedish emigration to North America through the story of the farmer Karl Oskar Nilsson and his wife Kristina. Moberg was politically engaged and always fought for individual rights, and for the abolition of the monarchy and the State Church of Sweden. He intervened in affairs of corrupt legal practice and published the bestselling book ?Why I am a Republican? (1955). His political views were inspired by his visits to USA and by the Swiss constitution. Moberg had a love affair with a woman named Kristina, whose name he used for the main character Kristina from Duvemåla of ?The Emigrant Novels? This love affair has remained unknown for over half a century, until a collection of his novels, all inscribed by Moberg to Kristina [Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005)], appeared on the market. Judging from the tone in the inscriptions, the relation between Moberg and Kristina was initially intimate and loving, and gradually devolving into affection. In the early inscriptions from the 1940s Moberg writes, for instance: ?To Kristina, my confidant and beloved!?, and in the play ?Chastity? he writes: ?Vilhelm Moberg?s chastity ? what is left of it is hereby dedicated to Kristina? The later in-scriptions from the 1960s contain phrases like: ?with a devout greeting? and ?from her affectionate Vilhelm? In the copy of ?The Emigrants? (?Utvandrarna?, 1949) Moberg writes: ?To Kristina, my be loved, who has lent her name to the female main character in this book, with gratitude and love from The Author.? In the last inscription, in the pocket edition of ?The Emigrant Novels? from 1969, he returns to the fact that she has given her name to Kristina from Duvemåla, which shows that the thought of her had occupied his mind during all these years, and it is also a sign of her probable influence on his writing from 1945 onwards. What further strengthens this opinion is the copy of ?Our Unborn Son?, a play from 1945, which deals with the issue of abortion. This is the only one of these books that has been bestowed with a fine leather binding, with a pocket at end of the volume where Kristina has collected newspaper cuttings on the book and its author, suggesting that the theme of this novel was essential to her. The book was translated into Danish in 1947, and in the collection there is a copy of the Danish edition which has been inscribed to Kristina by the translator thus: ?? This book, which is partly about you?? [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Lutterworth Press [1956] 8vo., First Edition, with a coloured frontispiece, 3 coloured plates and 32 monochrome plates on 30; handsomely bound in full red morocco, boards with gilt frame border, back gilt with five raised bands, second and fourth compartments ruled and lettered in gilt, all other compartments ruled and tooled in gilt, a most attractive copy ideal as a gift or for presentation. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON TITLE. David Attenborough's first book (with a delightfully youthful portrait on rear dw panel), and the beginning of the much sought - after 'Zoo Quest' series. Well - illustrated and delightfully written, his early titles display much of the talent and infectious charm that has since made their author a naturalist, broadcaster and presenter of world renown. The series captures well the appeal of his first - ever television series 'Zoo Quest' that ran on the BBC from 1954 - 1964. It also gave rise, incidentally (in those far - off pre - computer days), to a highly popular board game! Signed copies of this first title are scarce.

Jacket has a couple of small chips to head of spine. A fine copy; unusually for a reference book /study work, this example is unread. Wittgenstein was an Austrian-British philosopher who worked primarily in logic, the philosophy of mathematics, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of language, who inspired two of the twentieth century's principal philosophical movements; the Vienna Circle and Oxford ordinary language philosophy, and was a great influence to Betrand Russell and Immanuel Kant. Just one book, the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, was published in his lifetime, and Wittgenstein left a number of excercise books, papers, notes and lectures unpublished at the time of his death. This is the second of several posthumous works to appear.

        The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, 1956 8th Impression with Dustjacket, Custom Slipcase

      Houghton Mifflin, Boston 1956 - 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. A Very Good Plus/Near Fine copy of an extremely scarce early Hobbit. The 1956 printing, of the 2nd Edition (1951), or the 8th printing overall (1937). This copy is a stated 8th impression from the dustjacket, published by Houghton Mifflin from sheets imported from Great Britain. Stated 8th impression on front flap, not price clipped, noted as printed in Great Britain. According to Houghton Mifflin records, one of 1000 imported from Allen & Unwin, lacking the printing history on title verso, possibly to help them circumvent the import restrictions and US copyright laws. The book features the original unpriced dustjacket with the Mountains and Dragon design by the author, with a $2.50 bookstore price stamp to the front flap. The boards show no soiling with a slight moisture ring to the front boards, the only markings, the slightest bit of rubbing to the spine fold edges, no significant shelfwear to note. The text block is clean without any writing or markings, slight toning, without foxing or offsetting, a small moisture or discoloration to a couple of pages around the title page. No bumped corners, no significant faults. The dustjacket is not price clipped, and has no markings. The front flap shows a previous fold down the middle, now straightened out and the dustjacket is now covered in an archival protector. It shows only the most minor of rubbing, with absolutely no loss of color to any of the edges or fold areas. An absolutely fabulous dustjacket. A beautiful clean copy, one of the copies with the dark reddish brown (rust) colored boards stamped in blue, that are very hard to find. Contains the full color frontispiece "The Hill: Hobbiton-across-the Water", as well as the original line drawings by Tolkien. The maps are in excellent condition, with the red and black ink still showing clear and bright against the endpapers, a hint of browning to the gutters. Both maps have no foxing, no marks, or previous owners names. A highly collectable copy, hard to find in this beautiful Near Fine condition. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Very Good Plus / Near Fine.
