        Autograph manuscript leaf from Stride Toward Freedom

      1957 - KING Jr., Martin Luther. Autograph manuscript leaf from Stride Toward Freedom. Montgomery, Alabama, circa 1957. One leaf of Montgomery Improvement Association letterhead, measuring 8-1/2 by 11 inches, inscribed in pencil on the verso. With a first edition of Stride Toward Freedom. Housed together in custom chemise and a clamshell box. $19,500.Exceptional original autograph manuscript leaf entirely in Martin Luther King Jr.'s hand for his book Stride Toward Freedom, discussing the natural relationship between the Labor movement and the Civil Rights Movement.King's first book presented a full and personal account of the bus strike in Montgomery, Alabama. Sparked by Rosa Parks' refusal to give up her seat to a white man, it was the first successful large-scale application of non-violent resistance to segregation in the United States. This leaf, from a late draft of the work, reads: ".of whom have been active in white citizens councils. The existence of these conditions within the ranks of labor reveals that the job is a continuing one. The AFL-CIO must use all of the powerful forces at its command to enforce the principles it has professed. Labor leaders must continue to recognize that labor has a great stake in the struggle for civil rights, if only because the forces that are anti-Negro are usually anti-labor too. The current attacks on organized labor because of the misdeed of a few malefactors should not blind us to to labor's essential role in the present crisis." These words appear virtually unchanged on pages 204-05 in Chapter XI, titled "Where Do We Go From Here?""also the title of King's last work. (The sentences immediately preceding these in the final work are "The AFL-CIO drive to organize the South has been virtually abandoned because of the massive resistance of a significant portion of the organized labor oligarchy, many of whom have been active in white citizen's councils." The sentence after it is "The church too must face its historic obligation in the crisis.") That King should direct his attention to the labor movement is not in the least surprising: the March of Washington in 1963 began as a protest from the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, and one of the movement's main strategists was labor organizer Bayard Rustin. Indeed, in his later years, King increasingly saw his struggle as one for greater economic justice for all; King's assassination in 1968 occurred during the bitter Memphis Sanitation Worker's Strike, with which he was centrally involved. With eight pages of black-and-white photographs. Included with this leaf is a copy of the first edition of Stride Toward Freedom. Blockson 4119. An extraordinary Martin Luther King Jr. autograph manuscript with exceptional content. [Attributes: First Edition]

A vivid picture of the life of a young officer in Kenya at a time when settlers were just beginning to arrive in the country that was still inhabited by primitive tribes and wild animals. Col.

        Kenya Diary, 1902-1906

      Oliver and Boyd, Edinburgh; (1957) - 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.

        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.

        How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

      Random House, New York 1957 - First edition, first printing with all issue points: Cat in the Hat on back cover of book with 14 titles (up to now) listed on the rear flap and a list of 13 books printed at the end of the book. Dust jacket price reads 250/250. Inscribed twice by Dr. Seuss to the same recipient, "For Juanito with Best Wishes- Dr. Seuss." Dr. Seuss has signed on the verso of the front free endpaper and the verso of the half title page. Illustrated in black and red. Original illustrated glossy paper boards, pictorial endpapers. Very good with some rubbing to the boards as usual, repair to a tear in the rear endpaper in a very good dust jacket. "Clearly the Grinch has been the most memorable Christmas villain to undergo redemption since Ebenezer Scrooge. To some degree, Ted identified with the Grinch When asked why he wrote the book, Dr. Seuss replied, ‘I was brushing my teeth on the morning of the 26th of last December when I noted a very Grinch-ish countenance in the mirror. It was Seuss! So I wrote the story about my sour friend, the Grinch, to see if I could rediscover something about Christmas that obviously I’d lost.’ It was no coincidence that, when the book appeared in 1957, the Grinch complained, ‘For fifty-three years I’ve put up with it now’ Ted, of course, was born in 1904 After The Cat in the Hat and The Grinch, Ted’s reputation grew exponentially" (Cohen, 329-30).
