        Atlas Shrugged (First Edition, inscribed in the year of publication)

      New York: Random House, 1957. First Edition. First Edition. INSCRIBED in the year of publication: "To William W. Brainard, Jr. / With the compliments of our mutual friend John C. Gall / Cordially / Ayn Rand / 9/17/57." A wonderful association copy of the author's masterpiece. Brainard was a "gentleman farmer" from New Jersey ("a livestock farmer in a dinner jacket, per TIME Magazine), and distinguished himself on the popular level by being a judge at the Westminster Dog Show in 1958, 1972, and 1976, and as director of the American Whippet Club. The "mutual friend" John Gall mentioned by Rand is one of the inspirations for another major character in the book, John Galt. Fine and unread in an about Fine dust jacket. Jacket is unrestored, with uniformly deep colors and a brilliant, unblemished and unfaded topstain--only a touch of rubbing at the crown to note and none of the usual toning to the spine. Only once before have we seen an association copy inscribed in the year of publication. In a custom quarter leather clamshell box.

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.
