        Correspondence relating to hiring Roger Shugg for a senior editorial position at Alfred A. Knopf in 1945 and Shugg's resignation in 1952

      New York, etc., 1956. 3 typed letters, signed ("Alfred A Knopf"), on Knopf letterhead; 2 autograph letters, signed ("Alfred" & "A Knopf"), on Knopf and Mayflower Hotel stationery; with 3 typed letters, signed, from Knopf staff; carbon copies of 2 typed letters from Shugg, each 1-1/2 pp.; and related ephemera, photographs, and correspondence. 4to and smaller. Condition generally fine. 3 typed letters, signed ("Alfred A Knopf"), on Knopf letterhead; 2 autograph letters, signed ("Alfred" & "A Knopf"), on Knopf and Mayflower Hotel stationery; with 3 typed letters, signed, from Knopf staff; carbon copies of 2 typed letters from Shugg, each 1-1/2 pp.; and related ephemera, photographs, and correspondence. 4to and smaller. In early 1945, Alfred A. Knopf wrote to Prof. Roger Shugg (Princeton class of 1927) at the University of Indiana in Bloomington to offer an editorial job with responsibility for college-level history, politics and social sciences textbooks. Shugg, who had worked for Knopf during the middle 1930s, was a fellow at the London School of Economics in 1938-9. From 1941 to 1945, he served as an associate professor of history at Indiana Univ., while doing research for the Military Intelligence Service of the War Dept.'s general staff. During the course of the next month Knopf hired Shugg, effective April 1945, initially with a two-year contract. In late 1952, after a reorganization, Shugg wrote a detailed letter of resignation (present in the carbon), to which Knopf responded with two personal notes. As evidenced by letters to Shugg at the time, there was evidently some acrimony. Shugg went on to the University of Chicago Press, where he served as publishing director from 1961 to 1967. From 1963 to 1965 he was president of the Association of American University Presses, and from 1968 to 1980, he was the director of the University of New Mexico Press.With: White House invitation to a luncheon 17 June 1963 for editors of projects published under the auspices of the National Historical Publication Commission.

        Typed Note about hunting squirrels on Faulkner's farm with three autograph corrections and an Autograph Manuscript Christmas list on verso [With:] Mississippi Hunting and Fishing License for 1954-1955, signed in ink, "Wm Faulkner"

      Oxford, Miss, 1956. 10 lines, (75 words) signed William Faulkner in type, on bond paper, letterhead of The People-to-People Program on verso, with list in ink of gifts for six people. 4to. Old fold. Fine, in custom tan morocco backed folding case. 10 lines, (75 words) signed William Faulkner in type, on bond paper, letterhead of The People-to-People Program on verso, with list in ink of gifts for six people. 4to. Faulkner to Hunters in the 'pasture used by my horse and milk cow'. A whimsical note from the great American author: "The posted woods on my property inside the city limits of Oxford contain several tame squirrels. Any hunter who considers himself too deficient in woodcraft and marksmanship to face a dangerous wild squirrel, might be able to cope with these. These woods are a part of the pasture used by my horse and milk cow; also, the late arrival will find them already full of other hunters. He is kindly requested not to shoot either of these. William Faulkner" On the back of this note is a Christmas gift list in Faulkner's close hand, recording pints and various quantities of tobacco for Lulie Belle (1 pint, 1 tumbler snuff); Renzy (1 carton cigarettes, 1 tumbler snuff, 1 pint, 2 adults); Alvis (1 carton cigarettes, 1 pint, 6 children, 2 adults); Payne (1 pound tobacco, 1 pint, alone); Mary (1 pint, 2 people), and Andrew (2 pints, 1 tumbler snuff, 1 pound tobacco). The note and list can reasonably be dated to 1956, for in mid-June 1956 President Eisenhower asked Faulkner to head a section intended to improve ties between American writers and international authors; Faulkner was involved with The People-to-People Program through the autumn but was not a writer who had much patience for committees and ended his participation in early 1957. He used a the back of a sheet of letterhead to compose the humorous message to would-be hunters. The list of presents appears to be for members of his staff; "Andrew" is likely Andrew Price, whose wife Chrissie prepared the Christmas dinner (see Blotner, p. 1627); Renzy, one his farm workers and member of the hunting party in 1950 (see below), figures in Blotner's biography as Renzi. With Faulkner's hunting and fishing license from the state of Mississippi for October 1954 through June1955, listing his age as 56, weight 150 height 5' 6", and with the space for occupation left blank. Faulkner was a lifelong sportsman and a keen outdoorsman. When he received news of the decision to award him the Nobel Prize in November 1950, he promptly went off on a hunting trip to Cypress Lake between McCan and Hog Bayou, Mississippi. In 1955, his collection of hunting stories, The Big Woods, was published by Random House.

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples.

      London: Cassell, 1956-58. - A superb set of FIRST EDITIONS. 4 volumes. 8vo. Finely bound in recent blue half morocco, gilt titles and decoration to spines with raised bands, blue cloth boards; top edges gilt. Published shortly after Sir Winston Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, this is the author's last great work, only available some twenty years after he wrote the first draft, which then lay dormant whilst he attended to National and Parliamentary matters. In his preface he remarks that the book 'slumbered peacefully, until 1956, 'when things had quietened down'. Reading reports of the last decade of his life, one is struck by the central interest his history represented in his final years, and how rapidly he sank into decline and depression after the final volume was published.

The introduction notes that "Modern Chinese wood cutting and wood engraving is the child of the Chinese revolution. It began in 1929 and flourished with the encouragement and guidance of the grat writer Lu Hsun. Because the overwhelming majority of wood engravers were young and progressive, their art from the very beginning became an effective weaponin the cultrual armoury that served the Chinese working class."

      London: Herbert Jenkins, 1956 - Octavo. Original red boards, spine lettered in black, With the dust jacket. Tiny nicks to tips, front hinge just cracked at the surface but all holding fine, an excellent copy in the dust jacket with a few very minor marks to rear panel, tiny nicks to corners and a very few small closed tears to edges. First edition (preceding the US edition of 1959), first impression. "Pure Vintage Wodehouse", featuring the charming but penniless Marquis de Maufringneuse, a gentleman of expensive tastes and no money to indulge them, who sets out to revitalise the family's finances.
