Lawrence Durrell's masterpiece The Alexandria Quartet is four novels set in Alexandria, Egypt during the 1940s. The first of these, Justine "demands comparison with the best books of our century." Balthazar continues Durrell's epic series with "a spontaneous, resourceful new beauty" and, in the third novel Mountolive, Durrell again creates a "work of splendid craft and troubling veracity." The tetralogy's final novel Clea completes Durrell's stated design of modelling "the series on 'the relativity proposition' in physics"—altogether achieving "a spontaneous, resourceful new beauty" (New York Times).

        The Town

      New York: Random House, 1957 First edition, limited issue of 450 numbered copies. Signed by Faulkner on the limitation page. Publisher's tan cloth, lettered in gilt, tan marbled endpapers; in the original acetate dust jacket. Book about fine, with a former owner's inscription to the front free endpaper, bookseller's plate to the rear pastedown, else bright and fresh; dust jacket with closed tears to the panels, some creasing to the rear panel, minor chip and a short closed tear to the spine head. Overall, a near fine and very pleasing copy. Petersen A47.1a. The Town is the second novel in Faulkner's trilogy featuring the Snopes family, "who took root…and proliferated… until they out-maneuvered and overpowered a society and culture that had little defense against their invincible rapacity." The Town tells the story of Flem Snopes' rise to power in Jefferson, the seat of fictional Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi. Faulkner, a Mississippi native, based the fictional town of Jefferson on his real experiences in Oxford; The Town and the rest of the Snopes trilogy embody the cultural pathology of the New South after the Civil War. Like the other books in the series, The Hamlet (1940) and The Mansion (1959), The Town can be read in isolation but is richer in meaning when considered as part of the whole series.. Signed by Author. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Situation de la psychanalyse et formation du psychanalyste en 1956.

      (Vendome), Presses Universitaires de France, (1957). 8vo. In the original stapled printed wrappers. Offprint from "Les Études Philosophiques", October-December, 1956. Has been bended vertically and has some minor miscolouring to extremities, otherwise a very fine and clean copy. Pp. 567-584.. Scarce off-print issue of Lacan famous work on psychoanalysis in which Lacan revived Freudian psychoanalysis. The present publication marks a major turning point in Lacanian and French psychoanalysis in general with the split between Lacan and The International Psycho-Analytical Association (IPA) and the later founding of Lacan's own 'SCHOOL' in 1964.Lacan's famous "return to Freud" emphasizes a renewed attention to the original texts of Freud, and included a radical critique of Ego psychology. Lacan has been called "the most controversial psycho-analyst since Freud" mainly because of his (selective) revival of Freud and his quarrel with the IPA - the present publication not only marks the revival of Freud, it also initiates the split with the IPA.The main reason for the split between between the IPA and Lacan was Lacan's use of sessions of variable duration which the IPA did not advocate:"After (Lacan's) resigning from the IPA-affiliated Société Psychanalytique de Paris (SPP) in 1953, to join the newly founded Société Francaise de Psychoanalyse (SFP), Lacan was informed by letter that this also meant that he was no longer a member of the IPA. From that moment on Lacan until his dead Lacan and the IPA were at loggerheads. Lacan criticized both the institutional structure and the dominant theoretical tendencies of the IPA. [...]. Lacan argued that Freud had organized the IPA in such a way because that was the only way to assuring that his theories, misunderstood by all his first followers, remain intact for someone else (Lacan) to disinter and resuscitate later on. The IPA was, in other words, like a tomb whose only function was to preserve Freud's doctrine despite the ignorance of the members of the association, the implication being that once Lacan had breathed new life into the doctrine [which he did with the present publication], the IPA no longer had any valid function at all.

I went to the top of Mount Kenya with him in 1936 … I am too old to climb the mountain again. It fascinates me"; before concluding with typical hyperbole, "I think it is the most perfect mountain in the world and I know most of them including all the highest Himalayan ones".

A View from the Bridge is a play by Pulitzer Prize winning american playwright Arthur Miller, first staged on September 29, 1955 as a one-act verse drama with A Memory of Two Mondays at the Coronet Theatre on Broadway. The play was unsuccessful and Miller subsequently revised the play to contain two acts; this version is the one with which audiences are most familiar today.The two-act version premièred in the New Watergate theatre club in London's West End under the direction of Peter Brook on October 11, 1956. The play is set in 1950s America, in an Italian American neighborhood near the Brooklyn Bridge in New York. It employs a chorus and narrator in the character of Alfieri. Eddie, the tragic protagonist, has an improper love of, and almost obsession with, Catherine.Miller's interest in writing about the world of the New York docks originated with an unproduced screenplay that he developed with Elia Kazan in the early 1950s (entitled The Hook) that addressed corruption on the Brooklyn docks.Kazan later directed 'On the Waterfront', which dealt with the same subject.Miller said that he heard the basic account that developed into the plot of 'A View from the Bridge' from a lawyer who worked with longshoremen, who related it to him as a true story.The 2015 London revival of this play landed two Laurence Olivier Awards and a transfer to Broadway.Very scarce to find as a signed title.Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.

Das Buch, ebenfalls ein Meisterwerk des absurden Theaters basiert auf ein Schachspiel, die Schach - Kenntnisse gewann Beckett durch seine Freundschaft mit Marcel Duchamp. Harold Bloom behauptet in "The Western Canon", dies sei das größte dramatische Werk des 20. Jahrhundert. Bloom argumentierte: Le fin de la partie " is a 'greater yet more savage work than Godot:" Beckett selbst hat dieses Stück 1961 und 1967 am Berliner Schiller Theater inszeniert, die letztere Aufführung hat Rosemarie Clausen in beiliegendem Werk kongenial photograpisch dokumentiert.

Hans Arp, William Burroughs, Henry Miller, Truman Capote und vor allem Gottfried Benn verlegte. Äußerst selten mit einer Widmung, wie dieser, von internationalem, literaturhistorischen Bezug !

        Alter Mann auf Thron" originale Tuschfederzeichnung auf Papier ca. 32x23cm; signiert und datiert "(19)55"; verso handschriftlich betitelt

      - Hermann Schütte, ein zu unrecht Vergessener. Er war Maler, Graphiker und Schriftsteller. Ein junger Wilder, Dadaist, Phantastischer Realist, Surrealist. Mit vielen Großen seiner Zeit bekannt, mit Kurt Schwitters und Heinrich Vogeler befreundet. Zeitlebens ein Schaffender - creo ergo sum! Er rang mit sich und der Kunst, suchte immer neue Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten und -formen. Ein experimentierfreudiger und unabhängiger Geist, nicht trotz, sondern wegen seiner beruflichen Tätigkeit. Der erfolgreiche - wie man heute sagen würde - mittelständische Unternehmer - scherte sich nicht um Zeitgeist und mainstream. Er mußte weder sich, noch seine Kunst vermarkten. Er suchte und strebte nach Kunst, nicht nach Anerkennung. Seine Eigenwilligkeit scheint ihm der öffentliche, staatliche Kunstzirkus und Museumsbetrieb nicht vergessen zu haben und straft ihn deshalb mit weitgehender Mißachtung. Hermann Schütte war eben frei nach Karl Kraus unbequem und Sand im Getriebe der Welt. Ich möchte Hermann Schütte die Anerkennung zollen, die ihm zukommt und deshalb freue ich mich, einige seiner Arbeiten anbieten zu können. Möge aus dem fast Vergessenen wieder ein guter Bekannter werden. Klassische Moderne Kunst auf diesem Preisniveau ist nicht nur eine Kaufempfehlung, sondern ein echtes Muß! Zur genaueren Orientierung über Schüttes Leben und Schaffen mögen ein Zeitungsartikel anläßlich seiner Ausstellung in der Hamburger Kunsthalle 1957 und die Kopie eines Ausstellungs-Faltblattes dienen.

        Atlas Shrugged

      New York: Random House, 1957. First edition. Near Fine/Very Good. A Near Fine copy of the book with a contemporary gift inscription on the front end paper and the spine label a trifle rubbed, otherwise in excellent condition. In a Very Good dust jacket with a small chip and a one inch tear at the base of the spine, repair on the verso with tape. A few other little tears, without loss and a crease on the rear flap, otherwise a fairly bright, unfaded example. The jacket retains the critical $6.95 and 10/57 date code, essential for the first issue jacket. Rand's magnum opus, where she develops her objectivist theory and explores the question, "what if society's genius goes on strike?" Rand considered the book "not about the murder of man's body, but about the murder and rebirth of man's spirit." "Atlas Shrugged" has remained one of the most popular and influential books written in the twentieth century; one survey in 1991 finding it second only to the Bible in having the greatest impact upon its readers. The book would also place first on Modern Library Reader's Poll of the Top 100 novels of the 20th century. "...the reader will stay with this strange world, borne along by its story and eloquent flow of ideas." (Contemporary Newsweek Review). Near Fine in Very Good. dust jacket.

        Hitchcock (First French Edition, Signed by Alfred Hitchcock)

      Paris: Editions Universitaires, 1957. First French Edition. True first edition, preceding the American by nearly 20 years. INSCRIBED by Alfred Hitchcock on the half-title page ("To Peter, Alfred Hitchcock") followed by a large drawing of his well-known self-caricature. Eric Rohmer and Claude Chabrol wrote this book near the beginning of their respective careers, and would both go on to become highly individual and respected filmmakers in their own right. A classic study of Hitchcock's early-to-mid career films, one of the most important books on cinema printed in the twentieth century. A wonderful section of high-resolution stills from the Hitchcock films discussed ends the book, the last being the famous photo of Hitchcock crossing at the top of a steep stone stairway, from "I Confess." Very Good plus in photo illustrated wrappers, with a small tear at one corner of the crown. The only copy signed by Hitchcock we have ever encountered.
