        Inquest on Mata Hari

      London - Robert Hale Ltd, 1956. London - Robert Hale Ltd, 1956 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An in-depth study of the mysteries and myths surrounding the infamous Dutchspy Mata Hari. Margaretha Geertruida Margreet Zelle (1876 - 1917), better known by the stage name Mata Hari, was a Dutch exotic dancer, courtesan, and accused spy who was executed by firing squad in France under charges of espionage for Germany during World War I. During World War I, the Netherlands remained neutral. As a Dutch subject, Margaretha Zelle was thus able to cross national borders freely. To avoid the battlefields, she travelled between France and the Netherlands via Spain and Britain, and her movements inevitably attracted attention. In 1916, she was travelling by steamer from Spain when her ship called at the English port of Falmouth. There she was arrested and brought to London where she was interrogated at length by Sir Basil Thomson, Assistant Commissioner at New Scotland Yard in charge of counter-espionage. He gave an account of this in his 1922 book Queer People, saying that she eventually admitted to working for French Intelligence. Condition: In a brown cloth binding with unclipped Brodart dustwrapper. Externally, very smart. Dustwrapper has some handling marks and some small closed tears, but is otherwise sound. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean except for a few spots to the textblock edge. Overall: NEAR FINE with a VERY GOOD INDEED dustwrapper..

        Al Otro Lado Del Rio y Entre Los Arboles [Across the River and Into the Trees]

      Calle Nilo, Mexico : Editora Mexico, S. A. , 1956. Calle Nilo, Mexico : Editora Mexico, S. A. , 1956. Rare Mexican edition published November 30, 1956. Spanish translation by Manuel Gurrea. Signed and inscribed at title page: "To Eduardo, best wishes, Ernest Hemingway". Acquired from experienced Canadian collector of rare Cuban books, items, and artifacts of historical interest. Blue pebbled boards, stamped silver cover and spine titles (somewhat offset), some edge wear, bump. Pages very good, tanning; no writing. Bind good; hinges intact. Dj some edge wear, rub; protected in new clear sleeve. Enchanting and colorful wrap-around jacket painting depicts gondola being poled by helmsman into tunnel with bridge, silhouetted Venice, and orange sunset in background. Summary in Spanish at front flap. Ernest Hemingway's first novel in a decade - since For Whom the Bell Tolls - holds the essential emotion of that phenomenally successful book. In 'Across the River and into the Trees' there is a concept of the same intensity. Like the story of the Spanish civil war, which was centered upon a microcosm of action - the tense last days of an American in the midst of a group of guerrilla fighters, this story limits its scope to a very short span in the life of an American. This story builds its bridge not of days, but of hours, and it is even more charged with feeling. For many readers it will evoke a memorable earlier novel, A Farewell to Arms, because the background again is Italy, and again it is war. This newer war, however, is already in the past. The fighting is over; the reader hears only its echoes. Venice is the scene. Colonel Richard Cantwell of the United States Army is the principal figure, and perhaps the most complex character Hemingway ever presented. Hemingway said of his novel, "... start slow, then increase in pace till it becomes impossible to stand. I bring emotion up to where you can?t stand it, then we level off, so we won?t have to provide oxygen tents for the readers." - The New Yorker, 1950. 3/4" x 7 3/4" design. 322 pages. Insured post.. Signed by Author. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Good/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Book.

        Life is Good and Good For You In New York: Trance Witness Revels

      Milano: Feltrinelli Editore, (1956). Milano: Feltrinelli Editore, (1956). Near fine in a close to near fine jacket with a few small edge tears, creases, and tiny chips, most prevalent at the spine ends. Two small tears at the top of the rear panel have been unobtrusively repaired by tape at the verso. This copy lacks the original booklet.. First Italian Edition. Quarto. A wild pastiche of images arranged in an ebullient anti sequence, reflecting not only the artist's pre pop predilections, but also his use of the Photostat machine at Vogue's New York office. The freedom this new technology afforded was central to Klein's innate desire to deconstruct documentary. New York, the first of four city books that Klein produced, remains one of the most sought after photography books of the mid-20th century, and a precursor to Warhol, Lorinczy, van der Keuken, van der Elsken and Moriyama. No text accompanies the images. (Parr / Badger, v1, 243; Roth 140-141; Open Book 164-165; Auer 365).

        Forbidden Planet

      Farrar Straus and Cudahy, New York 1956 - Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 184 pages; 1st edition. Philip MacDonald's novel treatment of the Cyril Hume screenplay for the grounmdbreaking science fiction film starring Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis, and Leslie Nielsen. A snug clean copy in original dust jacket with $3.00 issue price intact to unclipped front flap. Spine just a hair cocked but overall the book is in wonderful condition. The dust jacket is crisp edged and clean but has had the unfortunate attention of silverfish to all the white title lettering of the spine panel. The damage is confined to the surface of the spine panel and very largely follows the outline of the lettering with something in the color/ink clearly not to the bugs' liking. The result is a sort of nearly attractive crazing to the title lettering at spine. The front and rear panels are bright and clean with just trace helf rubbing at edges. The terminal leaf of the novel is the Postscript of pages 183 and 184. In this copy it is a cancel (that is, a page pasted in to the existing binding) suggesting that the Postcript was added after the book had already been printed. There is a small snag to the paper in the gutter of this final leaf, apparently caused by the binder's glue used tipping the page in. VG++/G+ [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Beast of Hollow Mountain

      Display Productions Ltd. [1956]. Display Productions Ltd. [1956], 1956. An original and scarce UK quad for United Artists' 1956 western sci-fi comedy horror (that's a fine genre crossover), starring Guy Madison. Folded, condition A (fresh). Approx dimensions 40x30 inches, landscape format, now with loose-backed board stiffener. This B-movie would have had a small release in the UK, and as such, original posters especially in such fine condition, are scarce. One Day After A Million Years It Came Out Of Hiding... An American cowboy living in Mexico discovers his cattle is being eaten by a dinosaur. As one does (keep off the moonshine, kid). Although low budget, 'The Beast from Hollow Mountain' was innovative, being the first feature film in color and widescreen to feature stop-motion composites (filmed in'Regiscope'). Note on Format; the 'quad' is a vertical view UK movie poster measuring approx. 30 x 40 inches, generally issued folded with one vertical and three horizontal creases. The standard (and most collectible) format for film posters in Britain, being the equivalent of the US 'one-sheet'.

        Profiles In Courage

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1956.. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1956. First edition. Octavo, original half black cloth. Inscribed by John F. Kennedy on the front free endpaper, "To Barry Shear, with thanks and very best wishes John Kennedy." The recipient, Barry Shear was a television and film producer closely involved with the production of the 1960 Democratic National Convention, where he had this copy signed. Light wear, near fine in a bright dust jacket with a few small closed tears. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A nice association copy. 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."
