        The Flight from the Enchanter

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1956. A superb First Impression of Murdoch's second novel, following Under the Net. 8vo: 316,[2]pp. Publisher's cinnamon-colored paper (grained to simulate cloth over boards), spine lettered in gilt; pictorial dust jacket (price-clipped) illustrated by Edward Bawden. Fine, square, tight binding, pages crisp and fresh, in a Fine, bright, completely unfaded example of the magnificent jacket. Fletcher & Bove A0186. Murdoch denied putting friends into her novels, but the model for the enchanter Mischa Fox was the Bulgarian-born, Nobel Prize-winning writer Elias Canetti, Murdoch's lover from January 1953 until late 1955. According to Murdoch's biographer, Peter Conradi, Canetti, the "god-monster of Hampstead . . . represented the artist-as-manipulative-and-sadistic-mythomaniac" in her imagination. He was a cruel and controlling lover who dominated a coterie of enthralled "disciples" and mistresses, a role he reenacts in several of Murdoch's early novels, particularly Flight from the Enchanter, which she dedicated to him.

        Grimms' Other Tales, A New Selection by Wilhelm Hansen: Translated & Edited by Ruth Michaelis-Jena and Arthur Ratcliff: Illustrated With Ten Wood-Engravings by Gwenda Morgan (with Prospectus)

      [London]: The Golden Cockerel Press, 1956. Limited Edition. Leather. Near Fine. Morgan, Gwenda. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 160 p. Signed by Illustrator(s). ONE OF 75 COPIES BOUND IN MOROCCO out of a total edition of 500, this copy SIGNED BY THE ILLUSTRATOR, AND WITH ORIGINAL PROSPECTUS. Per the book's prospectus: "Among treasures sent out of Berlin for safety during the war were the notebooks of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. Among the manuscripts are a large number of the fairy-tales collected with tireless enthusiasm by the brothers, and for various reasons a considerable proportion of these are not available to the general reader and [are] virtually unknown. Already in 1823, when Taylor made the first English translation, it was realized that a further selection should be published in English, to contain excluded stories which Taylor described as 'most curious' and 'of great merit'. He had felt bound to suppress them, he wrote, 'in deference to the scrupulous fastidiousness of modern taste, especially in works likely to attract the attention of youth'. The fifty tales now printed in the Golden Cockerel selection are the cream of what we have called the Grimms' 'Other Tales', since none was included in their definitive German edition, nor in Taylor's classic English translation". ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in full purple morocco, gilt vignette on front board of a giant, gilt vignette on the back board of a village with a castle on a hilltop in the distance, top edge gilt, wood-engravings by Gwenda Morgan (N.B., the prospectus and bibliography both state that there are eleven wood-engravings, the title page of the book states ten; we count nine full-page engravings, the publisher's device on the title page, and a headpiece that opens the first tale); printed in Poliphilus type on mould-made paper, octavo size (just over 9.25" tall), pagination: (1)-160; limited edition of 500 copies overall, this no. 35 of the 75 specially bound in purple morocco, signed by the illustrator in blue ink on the colophon page. The prospectus mirrors the title page on the front page, page two has one of the full-page wood engravings, page three the opening of one of the tales with the decorative headpiece, page four tells about the book - the original cost for this book, bound in morocco, was $32.50. ***CONDITION: Near fine overall, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; there is some sunning to the spine to a mellow brown colour, some sunning also to the board edges, one extremely small area of light wear to the upper back corner, vintage bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown, else fine. The prospectus is near fine with some toning to the edges and very light overall edgewear. ***CITATION: Cock-A-Hoop 205. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        The Orations of Marcus Tullius Cicero.

      London: Henry G. Bohn, 1956. Finely bound set of the Orations of Cicero. Octavo, 8 volumes. Bound in contemporary three-quarters green morocco, gilt titles to the spine, all edges marbled. In near fine condition. Roman philosopher, politician, lawyer, orator, political theorist, consul, and constitutionalist. He came from a wealthy municipal family of the Roman equestrian order, and is considered one of Rome's greatest orators and prose stylists. His influence on the Latin language was so immense that the subsequent history of prose in, not only Latin but European languages up to the 19th century, was said to be either a reaction against or a return to his style. According to Michael Grant, "the influence of Cicero upon the history of European literature and ideas greatly exceeds that of any other prose writer in any language". Cicero introduced the Romans to the chief schools of Greek philosophy and created a Latin philosophical vocabulary distinguishing himself as a translator and philosopher.
