        Bourbon on the Rocks

      Sag Harbor, John Steinbeck, 1956, first edition. Although this was originally titled Bourbon on the Rocks, this lot of four items relates to Steinbeck's satirical novel, The Short Reign of Pippin IV, it includes three letters from Steinbeck to Marie Fraioli as well as a carbon copy of his typed manuscript as typed by Fraioli, she had been Elia Kazan's secretary (Kazan and Steinbeck were close because of their association with both East of Eden and Viva Zapata!), Steinbeck hired her to type what he thought would be a long short story, although he also recognized that it was rapidly turning into a short novel, he asks Fraioli for one copy and two carbons (one carbon included here) in the first letter (typed on his Sag Harbor stationery, but signed "John," dated March 14, 1956), he asks how her typing was going on a play that he had also submitted to her and insists on the Bourbon on the Rocks title despite what he had earlier dictated, it is a total of seven paragraphs, 32 lines, the second letter is an autographed letter signed John, saying she had done a wonderful job on his play and hoping that she liked his "Bourbon" story, asking that a carbon go to Kazan, it has two paragraphs, a total of 10 lines, all on ruled yellow paper, the third letter appears to be a carbon (four paragraphs, 19 lines) in which he talks more about his developing story, how it (then) had 22,000 words with another 3,000 to 5,000 more to come, although he notes that it will take considerable rewriting, this letter has a typed signature of one Horace K. Manley, but it is also on his Sag Harbor stationery, together with one of her carbons of the complete (at that time) story that he called Bourbon on the Rocks, a total of 73 pages, all now housed in a custom clamshell case. Essentially fine.

        Zoo Quest to Guiana [with] Zoo Quest for a Dragon [with] Zoo Quest in Paraguay [with] Quest in Paradise [with] Zoo Quest to Madagascar [with] Quest under Capricorn. THE 'ZOO QUEST' SERIES COMPLETE IN DUSTWRAPPERS

      Lutterworth Press, [1956-63]. 6 vols., 8vo., First Edition, with coloured frontispieces and very numerous coloured and monochrome plates throughout; original cloth (green/red/green/red/blue/green respectively), gilt backs, a very good, bright, clean set in dustwrapper. A remarkably bright, fresh set in the original colourful wrappers of Attenborough's earliest books, recording his 'Zoo Quest' animal-foraging expeditions in many different territories. Well-illustrated and delightfully written, these 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! The sequence comprises 'Zoo Quest to Guiana' (1956), 'Zoo Quest for a Dragon' (1957), 'Zoo Quest to Paraguay' (1959), 'Quest in Paradise' (1960), 'Zoo Quest to Madagascar' (1961) and 'Quest under Capricorn' (1963). Two omnibus volumes of extracts were published for a new generation of readers in the 1980s. COMPLETE SETS IN THIS CONDITION ARE SELDOM OFFERED FOR SALE. . Catalogs: modern firsts.

        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]
