        Seventy Original Fashion Drawings

      [circa 1957?]. Original artwork. Measuring approximately 7" x 10". Goauche on stiff paper. Fine. A collection of 70 full-color drawings of women's summer apparel and swim wear from an unknown 1950s fashion designer likely used for either reference during production or for use in a fashion catalog. The majority of the images consist of the sketched outlines of women with their garments painted in gauche; most in great detail with stripes, fabric textures, and the popular step-and-repeat motifs of the times, such as sail boats, flowers, fish, etc. The clothing styles and one particular design featuring flags suggest a European fashion house, possibly in Austria or Monaco. A number of the drawings include background details, some in color, and one example is fully painted. Of additional note are an illustration of a woman modeling an early bikini and another showing a man in a two-piece swimsuit. All the paintings are skillfully done, though a slight variation in style suggests they may have been created by more than one artist. A beautiful collection of original, full-color fashion illustrations from mid-20th Century Europe. .

Classic collection by one of the major contributors to "The Twilight Zone" TV series. Inscribed by Beaumont on the front free endpaper: "For Bill Froug -- / Here's to softened / lines, pure exposition, / and devious dialogue! / Chuck Beaumont." Beaumont wrote for most of the episodic television shows in the early to mid 1960s, but "The Twilight Zone" was clearly his favorite, with 22 scripts. Similarly, Bill Froug was an active producer on many shows in the early '60s, but had a particularly strong connection to "The Twilight Zone," producing, by coincidence, 22 shows. The two would work together on two episodes: "Queen of the Nile" (6 March 1964) and "Number 12 Looks Just Like You" (24 January 1964). A remarkable association copy, acquiring special poignance through Beaumont's early death at age 38, just ten years after the publication of this book. Includes "The Crooked Man," a "dystopia of homosexual dominance." - Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 257. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 110.

      New York Milestone 1957. 310 pages. Black and white photographic plates. "For thirty-seven years Harry M. Hoxsey has been one of the most controversial figures in American medicine. During that period thousands of patients - many of them declared "hopeless" by their own doctors - have taken the Hoxsey treatment. Today, five, ten, in some instances twenty years later, a suprising number of them are still alive, apparently in good health, with no discernible evidence of the deadly disease. They hail Hoxsey as a modern 'miracle man'. On the other hand, he has been branded as 'America's Number One Cancer Quack and Charlatan' - his treatment denounced as worthless... Convinced his treatment can save as many as eight out of ten cancer victims if applied in time, Dr. Hoxsey has undertaken in this book to bring his startling story in full before the public for the first time." - from dust jacket. Average wear to unmarked book. Binding sound. Pages have yellowed with age. Blemish on top edge of textblock is 1.5 inch by 0.5 inch.

        The Decisive Battles of the Western World and their influence upon history

      London: Eyre & Spottiswoode, , 1957. 3 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, spines lettered in gilt, top edge purple. With the dust jackets. Ownership signature to front free endpaper. A superb set, with only a little fading to spine of Vol. III, in the bright jackets that have sunned spines, some nicks to extremities, and a chip to foot of spine of Vol. III. Second impressions. The volumes were originally issued yearly between 1954-6. Presentation copies, each volume inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "To Henry, with greetings from the author - Boney." The 1939-40, two-volume, first edition of this work was (so Fuller claims in his preface) destroyed in the Blitz - a piece of great good fortune for him, as the text has been described by Anthony Trythall, Fuller's first biographer and a far from hostile witness, as "shrill Fascist special pleading." This rewritten and expanded version became "the major work on which his reputation as a historian must rest… thenceforward he was able to bask in the sunshine of a prophet restored to honour in his own country…" (Michael Carver in DNB).

However, the couple went up in her estimations considerably and she became especially fond of Maud, as evidenced by the warm inscription.

        ATLAS SHRUGGED

      New York: Random House, 1957. First edition. Fine/Fine. A Fine copy of the book in like dust jacket. The book is clean and unmarked, sharp and square. In a brilliant dust jacket without chips or tears, and completely unfaded, with just one small scuff near the spine. The jacket retains the critical $6.95 and 10/57 date code, essential for the first issue jacket. A book that is readily available, but rarely seen in such beautiful condition. 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). Fine in Fine. dust jacket.

        Son Of Mother Goose

      Np [BBC], London 1957 - 45 mimeographed pp., secured with split pin to top left. A little edgewear, some age-toning, occasional markings throughout (mostly parentheses). First edition. NO RECORDING OF THIS SHOW HAS SURVIVED. Recorded at the RAF Depot, Uxbridge, and transmitted on Boxing Day 1957, Son Of Mother Goose was written by Terry Nation (in his pre-Doctor Who days) and John Junkin. It co-starred Shani Wallis, Gilbert Harding, Stanley Unwin, Ronnie Hilton and the prodigiously stacked Sabrina who, with measurements of 42-17-36, may have been a little wasted on the radio. Here she plays the Fairy Godmother, and on her first entrance has the following exchange: SABRINA: 'I've been having a nibble at Ronnie Hilton's hot meat pie' FRANKIE: 'Well, wipe the gravy off your chin.' We assume this was put in for the live RAF audience and cut before broadcast, but we'll never know, as no recording of the show has survived. However, a reading of the script shows that Nation and Junkin knew exactly how to write to Howerd's strengths. Both here and in Fine Goings On, a radio series they would write for him the following year, Howerd was given plenty of freedom to use the gossipy, straight-out-front style for which audiences would come to love him. An original typescript, of a lost show, co-written by the creator of the Daleks, and starring a legend of British comedy.
