      Collins, London 1956 - Original dustjacket artwork for the First British Edition of Calvino's first novel. Gouache on artboard, with the image measuring 9.5 X 12 inches and the board measuring 10.5 X 15 inches. A colorful and visually stunning piece, signed by artist Trevor Denning near the lower right corner. Brieft pencilled notation regarding measurments on the lower margin, with the publisher, author, and translator's names overlaid and mounted to the piece on thick cardstock. The printers' instruction sheet for Collins is handwritten on pink stock, affixed on the verso. 'The Path to the Nest of Spiders' is told from a child's perspective. Calvino paints the trauma of war torn Italy using a variety of impressive characters, namely a young boy and his teenage sister, who are depicted on the jacket. In our experience, the British Edition of the book is quite uncommon, with few copies offered on the market - collectable or otherwise. The only original jacket artwork we have seen for one of Calvino's books, and quite dazzling in comparison to its American counterpart. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples.

      Cassell and Company Ltd., London, 1956–8 - 4 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spines gilt, red top stain. With the dust jackets. Top-stain variably faded, jackets slightly rubbed and with a few very minor splits, internally clean and bright, a very good set. All volumes illustrated with maps and genealogical tables. First editions, first impressions. Churchill's history of the two branches of the English-speaking nations – the British Empire and the United States – was begun during his "Wilderness Years" in the early 1930s, but not completed until after his retirement from the political stage in the late 1950s. The events of the Second World War, the major interruption in the writing process, had reconfirmed his belief in the "Special Relationship", "For the second time in the present century the British Empire and the United States have stood together facing the perils of war on the largest scale known among men, and since the cannons ceased to fire and the bombs to burst we have become more conscious of our common duty to the human race." Consequently he gave considerable attention to the key events of American history, around a quarter of the third volume, "The Age of Revolution", is dedicated to the American War of Independence, and a full third of the final volume, "The Great Democracies" contains a detailed study of the American Civil War.

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples

      Cassell and Company Ltd., London 1956 - Here is an excellent British first edition set of Churchill's sweeping history and last great work. The first draft was completed just before the Second World War, but the work was not completed and published until after Churchill's second and final Premiership, nearly 20 years later. The first British edition is regarded as one of the most beautiful productions of Churchill's works, with tall red volumes and striking, illustrated dust jackets. Churchill seems to have taken an active and detailed interest in the aesthetics of the publication. He told his doctor: "it is not necessary to break the back of the book to keep it open. I made them take away a quarter of an inch from the outer margins of the two pages and then add the half-inch so gained to the inner margin." He was clearly satisfied with the result, remarking with pardonable exuberance "It opens like an angel's wings." (Gilbert, Volume VIII, p.1184) Unfortunately, as beautiful as the first editions are, they proved somewhat fragile. The dust jackets commonly suffer significant fading, wear, soiling, and spotting, and the books typically bear spotting and fading of the red-stained top edges. Here is a near-fine plus set of four British first edition, first printings in fine dust jackets. All four dust jackets are unclipped and complete, with vividly bright, entirely unfaded spines that show no trace of the usual dulling. No losses or tears. The only dust jacket flaws noted are fractional hints of wear at a few spine ends and corners, and very light soiling to the blank portions of the rear faces. All four dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. The red cloth bindings are uniformly bright, tight, and square with sharp corners and bright spine gilt. The contents are uniformly bright and clean. We find absolutely no spotting and no previous owner marks. Even the fore edges are clean and free of spotting. The only flaw that prevents the volumes from being graded as fine is the top edges, which are sunned to dark pink.

        The Goon Show: Series Seven, Episode Four: The Macreekie Rising Of '74

      Np [BBC], London 1956 - 23 mimeographed pp., secured with split pin to top left. Revisions, annotations and doodles throughout, some dampstaining to upper half. First edition. CO-WRITER LARRY STEPHENS' COPY, WITH HIS OWNERSHIP SIGNATURE TO FRONT PAGE AND WITH HIS REVISIONS AND ELABORATE DOODLES THROUGHOUT. 'Larry was an ex-commando captain, who had seen some tough service in the Far East. He had a natural flair for comedy scriptwriting and shared with the Goons their irreverence and sense of the ridiculous, and also their artistic and musical leanings. He was both an able pianist and a meticulous illustrator of the definitive Goon character, with which he was wont to adorn the pages of his script.' (Jimmy Grafton, The Goon Show Companion). Larry Stephens is one of the more elusive figures in British comedy history. He and Spike Milligan were kindred spirits. Both were jazz fanatics (Stephens was a skilled pianist); both had faced the terror of war (Stephens as a Commando Captain); both battled personal demons. Stephens began his comedy career writing material for his close friend, the yet-to-be-famous Tony Hancock, but by 1951 had found his spiritual home at The Goon Show. He was a rock for the famously unstable Spike Milligan, able most weeks to distil the essence of Spike's madness into a workable Goon Show script. Stephens' ability to speak fluent Milligan made their writing partnership the most reliably productive on the show, and is also the main reason why the short film The Case of the Mukkinese Battlehorn comes closest of all visual adaptations to capturing the almost abstract imaginary universe of the Goons. But Stephens was an alcoholic, and his excessive drinking led to battles with the BBC as early as Series 2 -- and also to his tragically early death from a cerebral haemorrhage in January 1959, at the age of thirty-five. Stephens' absent-minded habit of doodling Goonish caricatures on his scripts is well documented (see above), but examples rarely appear on the open market. The script offered here carries some excellent examples, notably the full-page rendering of 'Xerxes Print, Horse-Plucker-In-Ordinary'. The dampstaining (which has not affected the doodles) seems to have taken place a long time ago: Stephens' name on the front page is blanched slightly, but is perfectly legible. A recording of this show is held in the BBC Sound Archives. Spike Milligan was unwell at the time of recording, and does not appear; his place was taken by George Chisholm. An extremely rare and highly desirable piece of British comedy history.

        Profiles In Courage.

      Harper & Brothers, New York 1956 - First edition. Octavo, original half black cloth. Inscribed by the author to Massachusetts Senator Leverett Saltonstall, "To Senator Saltonstall- with the very highest regards of his colleague John Kennedy." Leverett Saltonstall was the senior senator of Massachusetts while, John Kennedy was the junior senator. An excellent copy in a bright near fine dust jacket. Saltonstall served as Republican Whip from 1949-1957 and as chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee from 1953-1955. Saltonstall attended the wedding of John Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953, and the two served together in the Senate from 1953 to 1960. Saltanstall and Kennedy worked together closely over the course of several years, as evidenced of one of their constituents thought the two had an even closer relationship, mistakenly assuming Saltonstall to be Kennedy's uncle. "If you are ready to admit it," Kennedy kidded in a 1963 letter, "I am." An excellent association copy. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The Pulitzer Prize-winning book was written when Kennedy was the junior senator from Massachusetts, and it served as a clarion call to every American. The inspiring accounts of eight previous heroic acts by American patriots inspired the American public to remember the courage progress requires. Now, a half-century later, it remains a classic and a relevant testament to the national spirit that celebrates the most noble of human virtues. Kennedy relates these heroisms to sketches of American politicians who have risked their careers for principle. "A man does what he must," he wrote, "in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures-and that is the basis of all human morality."

        Hits, Runs and Social Errors. Choice Cartoons from Sports Illustrated

      New York: Random House,, 1956. Selected by Charles Preston, Tall quarto. Original pictorial boards. With the dust jacket. Illustrations throughout. Boards slightly rubbed and dulled, lower corner bumped, light uneven tanning to front free endpapers from inserted material. A very good copy in the rubbed and creased jacket with a small chip from the head of the spine panel. First edition, first impression. From the library of Laurence Olivier, inscribed to him by Elizabeth Taylor on the front free endpaper, "Dear Sir Laurence, Thank you for always being so kind. Love, Elizabeth. Sept 14, 1960". Olivier had been good friends with Richard Burton for some years, and it was Burton who hosted the party at which Olivier's marriage to Joan Plowright (which had taken place quietly earlier the same day) was announced. Olivier may have encountered Taylor in 1953, when she replaced Vivien Leigh in Elephant Walk, but they did not become close until after Taylor's marriage to Burton in 1964. In September 1960 the filming of Cleopatra was still taking place in London, and it is possible that Olivier had offered advice on the roles, having previously played the leads in Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra and Shaw's Caesar and Cleopatra.
