In the original Czech, later issued in English as "A Box of Lives. " This is a beautiful copy of the scarce first edition with the original illustrated dust jacket. "Norbert Frýd (born Norbert Fried) (1913 - 1976) was a Czech writer, journalist and diplomat. He is known mainly for his autobiographical novel Krabice živých (A Box of Lives, 1956) , in which he describes his experiences in Nazi concentration camps. During World War II, he was imprisoned in the Theresienstadt, Auschwitz and Dachau-Kaufering concentration camps... The plot is set in the last months of 1944, in the fictional concentration camp of Gigling. The main character, the young intellectual Zdenek Roubík, is an assistant in the camp office. One of his jobs is to maintain the card index of the inmates, hence the title of the novel, 'A Box of Lives. ' In the camp, Roubík gradually manages to overcome the apathy and depression caused by the death of his brother and he becomes more actively involved in camp life. The author attempts to depict everyday life, social interactions and relationships in the camp, and the work and hardships of the inmates. The description of the SS guards in the camp is a focus of particular attention...The novel was acclaimed by contemporary critics, and republished in numerous editions and translations. " (Wikipedia, 2017) Frýd's successful novel was published twice in Czech in 1956, with this 1st edition being much rarer than the stated 2nd edition. OCLC lists just 4 copies worldwide (Emory, Wisconsin, Johannes-Gutenberg-Universitat Mainz, Univ Of Basel) , and none in New York City or in the North East United States. Slight toning. And minor edgewear to dust jacket but overall both book and jacket are in very good condition. Attractive, rare, and important. (holo2-135-48)

        A History of the English-Speaking Peoples

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd,, 1956–8. 4 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spines in gilt, top edges red. With the dust jackets. Illustrated throughout with maps and genealogical tables. A very good set, vol. I with faint tape residue to free endpapers, in the jackets with slightly toned spines, a couple of short closed tears, extremities rubbed and a little creased, tape reinforcement to verso of two vols, vol. IV price-clipped. First editions, first impressions. Churchill began his history of the British Empire and the United States during his period in the political wilderness in the early 1930s, but did not complete it until after his retirement 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" between Britain and the United States. 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 War of Independence, and a full third of the final volume, The Great Democracies, contains a detailed study of the American Civil War.

        The Making of the King James Bible: A Monograph, with Comparisons from the Bishops Bible and the Manuscript Annotations of 1602, with an Original Leaf from the Great "She" Bible of 1611

      Plantin Press for Dawson's Book Shop, Los Angeles 1956 - Folio. 31pp. One of 290 copies printed at the Plantin Press for Dawson's Book Shop. Though this title usually only includes one original leaf, this particular copy contains two, one from the Book of Proverbs and another from the Book of Matthew, both with two woodcut initials. The "Great She Bible of 1611" is really a corrected version printed in 1613 of the "Great He Bible of 1611", in which a typographic error results in the Book of Ruth having a "he", referring to Boaz, placed where a "she", referring to Ruth, should be. The "Great She Bible" is thus the second authorized printing of the King James Bible, with the "He" version being the first. Willoughby's comprehensive monograph on the King James Bible discusses the factors that impacted the first printing, and is illustrated with facsimiles from the 1611 edition. Leaves show some foxing and minor wear to edges, else fine. Bound in quarter cloth and printed boards in glassine. Some rubbing to corners and mark on front board. Near fine overall. Bookplate.

I with faint tape residue to free endpapers, in the jackets with slightly toned spines, a couple of short closed tears, extremities rubbed and a little creased, tape reinforcement to verso of two vols, vol. IV price-clipped. Illustrated throughout with maps and genealogical tables. First editions, first impressions. Churchill began his history of the British Empire and the United States during his period in the political wilderness in the early 1930s, but did not complete it until after his retirement 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" between Britain and the United States. 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 War of Independence, and a full third of the final volume, The Great Democracies, contains a detailed study of the American Civil War.
