      The First UK printing published by Cresset Press in 1957.The BOOK is in near FINE condition.Mild offsetting to the end papers with a little spotting to the text block.Red cloth clean with sharp corners and bright gilt lettering.Free from inscriptions, erasures and markings.The WRAPPER is complete and is in near FINE condition.A little edge wear to the spine ends with a little rubbing at the rear upper spine fold.Small closed tear to the front upper spine fold.Colouring to the spine remains bright.Rear cover remains remarkably clean for its age.The wrapper looks very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover.The book has been SIGNED by Arthur Miller to the half title (as was his custom). 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.

Additionally, Frost has signed his name in full along the bottom of the title page using the same ink. Frost generally did not sign his Christmas cards, but would occasionally initial "R.F." to personalize. It is very scarce to see his name signed in full as it appears on the present offering.

        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.

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.

        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.

Joint une coupure de presse sur le livre par Jean Blanzat (Figaro littéraire du 29-2-57) : "Blaise Cendrars rassemble dans Trop, c'est trop un certain nombre de textes d'occasion, de préfaces, d'articles "commandés", d'écrits épars dans des revues, des journaux, des magazines ou extraits d'éditions rares. Pour les plus grands, les recueils de cette nature constituent toujours une épreuve. Ils risquent de n'apparaître que comme une somme de redites, disparates, en marge de l'oeuvre. Et s'il est vrai que Trop, c'est trop recoupe l'essentiel des thèmes de Cendrars, si, en particulier, on y voit se préciser ou se compléter sa biographie mystérieuse, il n'en reste pas moins que chacun, ou presque, de ces fragments suggère son auteur tout entier. Cendrars y apparaît dans tous ses caractères. [.] Tous ses pairs français paraissent, en regard, les hommes d'une seule préoccupation, d'une seule culture, d'une seule province, plus ou moins élargie par le talent. Lui seul, naturellement, semble à l'écoute du monde, de sa variété, de ses mystères si différents, confondus d'ailleurs dans le même amour de la vie.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Tel Aviv, 14. XII. 1957. - 8vo. 2 pp. To Jewish Swiss-Austrian translator, feature writer, and at one time assistant to Max Reinhardt, Fritz Bondy (1888-1980), thanking for making the acquaitance with the Milich couple possible, for sending him his book on Lady Hamilton, whom Brod had always admired in his "mature youth", "and whom I had intended to celebrate as the heroine in a novel; only in the sense of 'Tosca': 'a heroine of love' [.] That I had success in America with my Jesus novel 'The Master' may be already known to you. You will stand above the toil of translating the book into German [.] The Tschudy publishing house asked me to send you my new Kafka book [.]". Brod concludes with thoughts an present day Israel and writer Arthur Koestler. "You think too highly of Koestler. He is thoroughly without a heart. And without heart, one realizes nothing. The state of Israel cannot exist without the Jews in the Diaspora, neither can the Diaspora survive without the state of Israel. History, which usually doesn't repeat itself, makes an exception here for a change and presents up with a new edition of Philo of Alexandria's times [.]" (transl.). - With stamped address.

Bedeutender Brief über lyrisches Handwerk an den Schriftsteller Rudolf Hartung (1914-1985) mit Dank für dessen Gedichte: „[ ] Ihre Verse [ ] waren mir immer besonders nahe, ich hatte oft den Eindruck, daß Sie, auf Ihre Weise, etwas Ähnliches versuchen wie ich selbst [ ] Ich bin von den beiden ersten ('Trüber Tag' und 'In den Dünen') besonders angetan [ ] Sehr vereinfacht gesagt, ist die Länge eines Gedichtes mit der Qualität umgekehrt proportional [ ] Ich hoffe, Sie finden meine handwerkliche Kritik nicht anmaßend und beckmesserisch! Dann hätte ich doch zu undeutlich gesagt, was ich sagen will: Daß mir Ihre Gedichte viel bedeuten [ ]" - Der umfangreiche Brief enthält Kritik und ausführliche Verbesserungsvorschläge für die eingesandten Gedichte. Hartung veröffentlichte 1959 seinen Gedichtband "Vor grünen Kulissen", der die erwähnten Gedichte enthält. - 1 Beilage.
