        From Russia, With Love

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1957 First edition, first impression of the fifth novel in the James Bond series. Publisher's black cloth, with a revolver and rose illustration to the front board in metallic silver and red, lettered in silver; in the original pictorial dust jacket designed by Richard Chopping, with an illustration of a Smith & Wesson revolver with a rose to the front panel, lettered in black. Near fine, with a hint of light rubbing to the spine, else bright and clean; price-clipped dust jacket, with a few minor chips and some light offsetting to the spine ends, some rubbing to the folds, bright and unfaded spine, light soiling to the otherwise clean wrappers. Overall, a very fresh and sturdy copy. Gilbert A5a 1.1 From Russia with Love has an archetypal Cold War plotline in which the democratic West must defend itself from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. In this novel, Bond faces SMERSH, the Russian counterintelligence agency whose acronymic name stems from the Russian phrase "Death to Spies!" SMERSH seeks to undermine the British intelligence service by killing one of their 00 agents, and they have chosen James Bond as their target victim. From Russia with Love introduces two of the most memorable female Russian spies: the glamorous seductress Tatiana Romanova, who baited womanizer 007 into SMERSH'S clutches, and Rosa Klebb, the Head of SMERSH's department of operations. Klebb possesses one of the more unique weapons in the Bond series: poison-dipped daggers that shoot out from her shoes. From Russia with Love is largely considered to mark the turning point in Fleming's career as a successful writer.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Kenya Diary, 1902-1906

      Edinburgh; (1957): Oliver and Boyd. Octavo. 347pages, illustrations. A fine copy of one of the most fascinating accounts of a member of British aristocracy whose horrendous love of killing even shocked his contemporaries though the British ruling class considered them necessary. He was commissioned in the Royal Fusiliers in 1899 and served in India but in 1902 became a part of the King's African Rifles in Kenya where he was a major part of the three punitive expeditions which are described in often in bloody detail. While he enjoyed hunting, he took pleasure in murdering the Africans of Kenya which he saw as merely another aspect of hunting. When he came upon a Kikuyu village he gave orders that every living thing except child should be killed "without mercy". When a baboon murdered his pet terrier he murdered every baboon within the area to "teach them a lesson". In spite of his murder of the Laibon, the leader of the Nandi, against the wishes of the African administrators, he was given the Victoria Cross. The diary seldom has been preserved in such fine condition since it was readable for those who took delight in the carefully described day-to-day accounts of his murders of the peoples of Kenya. In spite of its horror to the sensitive reader, his personal account of his meetings with the slave raider Tippoo Tib and the major architects of the British exploitation of Kenya remains one of the most important accounts of those violent years. Bound in brown cloth, spine lettering gilt, one corner bumped, in beautiful unclipped pictorial dust jacket showing only very minute wear.

"But then they danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a common place thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!" (p 8). Black cloth with title in white on cover and flawless text in white on spine [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter Mentioning Lady Be Good, Foggy Day and Funny Face

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph letter from the American lyricist dated April 22, 1957 to a Miss [Madge] Rogers, mentioning the Gershwin brothers' 1924 musical Lady Be Good, their song A Foggy Day, and the new Audrey Hepburn film Funny Face, featuring several Gershwin songs. Writing on his Beverly Hills letterhead, Gershwin also mentions the ongoing renovation of his house there.  2pp. (recto/verso). In fine condition and sold together with the original transmissal envelope.<br>Text, in part: "Thank you for the photographs of your charming town; also for the interesting review of 'Lady Be Good.' I'd heard vaguely that a company had revived that show but have had no official confirmation. However, when you tell me they've had difficulty finding a London theatre, I imagine it wasn't too commercial a project and the show has probably closed by now - although I hope, of course, that it's still around somewhere... I'm surprised that 'A Foggy Day' is rarely, if ever, played - since you say you've never heard it. There have been many recordings. As for 'Funny Face': The film doesn't use the original story (just as well) but does include six of our songs. It received unanimously good notices in New York and is a big hit there. I imagine London will see it shortly and should you get to see it, I'm sure you'll find it enjoyable."
