        POLLY - MY WONDERFUL MOTHER

      Herbert Jenkins, London 1956 - The magnificence of this book are the signatures to the first blank end page. It is signed by 'Barbara Cartland', her Mother: 'Mary Cartland', and her two children; 'Ian McCorquodale' and his Sister Raine Legge.[Raine Legge [nee; McCorquodale], went on to become Countess Raine Spencer [Lady Diana's Wicked Step-Mother]. There is a further signature below these famous signatures, for an 'Eva Mowbray', [I don't know who she is], but the signature is noted. This book is Biographical / Historical - This is the story of Polly Cartland's life that is primarily a Love Story. The enchanted love of a young girl, the passionate love of a married woman, and the deep inspiring love of a mother dominate its pages. Through love, Polly guided and influenced her brilliant son, Ronald, who died at Dunkirk, and through her love she played a major part in the lives of her daughter, Barbara, and of her grand-daughter Raine. The tremendous events and changes that took place during her life necessarily left their imprint on her, but no upheaval, however great, could ever diminish the love she gave and received in return. Her life was one of devotion, and this portrait of her has admirably captured her qualities. CONDITION & DESCRIPTION: the original dustjacket houses this book. Retains price to front prelim.

        In The Bottom of my Garden

      [New York]: Self-published, circa 1956. First Edition. Very good in paper covered boards with a lithographed, hand-colored illustration on the front board. The binding is sewn. An oblong octavo of 8 1/2 by 11 inches containing 20 lithographed plates on wove paper two ofwhich have some modest hand-coloring. The paper covered boards are soiled and there is some modest foxing. The paper joining the two boards over the spine area is torn and chipped. Although the end sheets show some small spots of foxing, the contents are in excellent condition and are best classified as an erotic picture book. Signed and inscribed "To Frances | Keane" by the author, artist, and in this case, bookbinder and publisher at the lower spine side of the front board. Unpaginaged, but containing 20 plates. Andy Warhol started his art career in New York City in 1949 where he worked as an advertising art director. This item represents one of his first forays into book making. Reportedly this book was created as a promotional item and copies were given to close friends and clients. Copies of this book were often cut up allowing the individual lithographs to be sold separately. As a result, complete copies of the book are uncommon. The book contains only three lines of text all hand written in an exaggerated script by Warhol's mother, Julia Warhola, who, with limited English, undoubtedly had no understanding of the double-entendre meaning of the words she had written.

        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. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Fine / Fine.
