        From Russia, With Love

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1957. First edition. Octavo, original black boards. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with some toning to the spine "Described in the Times Literary Supplement as 'most brilliant,' the book was a great commercial success and helped to launch Fleming as a best-selling novelist… It ended with Bond seriously wounded… and nearly killed… by fugu poison from the sex organs of the Japanese globe-fish… While the ending was not quite Sherlock Holmes and his apparently fatal last struggle with evil at the Reichenbach Falls, Fleming had provided himself with an opportunity to remove his hero. He was not, however, to take it. There was public agitation when 007 was reported dead. Bond was irreplaceable" (Black, 27, 30). "This is a very highly sought after title, as it is generally considered the best novel in the series and the best of the movies, as well" (Biondi & Pickard, 44). Made into the 1964 film of the same title with Sean Connery as Bond and Lotte Lenya as ex-KGB agent Rosa Klebb.

        The Cat in the Hat

      New York: Random House, 1957. First U.S. edition, first printing. This is the first edition, first printing, in dust jacket of one of the most iconic books by one of the world's most iconic children's authors, Dr. Suess.  Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, Theodor Seuss Geisel (1904-1991), later known to the world as Dr. Seuss, was "probably the best-loved and certainly the best-selling children's book writer of all time" (New York Times Book Review).  Geisel started out as a freelance cartoonist and then, perhaps improbably, an advertising department employee of Standard Oil, where he spent 15 years.  His first children's book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, was conceived aboard a ship returning from a European vacation with his wife, where it was the rhythm of the ship's engine that inspired the story's signature rhyme.  The book was rejected 27 times before being published by Vanguard Press.  Geisel's illustration style, with the addition of his signature rhymes, would become the basis for his 44 children's books.  The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, was the result of a joint venture between Houghton Mifflin and Random House. While Geisel was under contract with Random House, Houghton Mifflin approached him to write a children's book using only vocabulary from a list of 225 words for early readers. Due to his contract, Random House retained the trade publication rights while Houghton Mifflin obtained the school rights.  By all accounts, Geisel underestimated the challenge of working within the confines of the word list.  "Seuss was used to inventing words when he needed them, so to stick to a word list was a huge challenge for him," and it reportedly took him a year and a half to write the book.  Intended by the publisher as a children's primer, the book vastly exceed expectations, and its huge success made "Dr. Suess" a household name.  The Cat in the Hat also revolutionized the conventional approach to children's primers.  The book was so successful that Random House created a special division, Beginner Books, with the Cat in the Hat as the logo and Dr. Suess as president of the division.  Here is the first edition, first printing in the rare first edition dust jacket.  All of the first edition points are present; "200/200" on the dust jacket upper front flap, unglazed binding, and contents comprised of a single signature. Condition of both the dust jacket and volume is very good plus.  The binding remains square and tight with bright color, showing only minor wear and slight toning and soiling to extremities.  The contents remain clean and bright with no previous ownership marks or spotting noted.  The dust jacket is notably bright and complete, with light wear primarily confined to the hinges, spine ends and corners, a 1.25 inch closed tear at the lower front flap hinge, and light soiling, mainly to the rear panel.  The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

Die ersten sechs sehr seltenen Hefte dieser wichtigen Zeitschrift zur afrikanischen Literatur. - "Horst Ulrich Beier, known as Ulli Beier (1922 - 2011), was a German Jewish editor, writer and scholar, who had a pioneering role in developing literature, drama and poetry in Nigeria, as well as literature, drama and poetry in Papua New Guinea. ... In 1957 he founded the magazine Black Orpheus. Its name was inspired by "Orphee Noir", an essay that he had read by the French intellectual Jean-Paul Sartre. The first African literary journal in English, it quickly became the leading venue for publishing contemporary Nigerian authors. It became known for its innovative works and literary excellence, and was widely acclaimed" (Wikepedia vom 12/11/2014). - "The development of Nigerian literature owed much to two related centres in Ibadan. The journal Black Orpheus, founded in 1957 with Ulli Beier and Janheinz Jahn as its first coeditors, took its name from Jean-Paul Sartre's famous 'Orphee noir' (1948), the introduction to Senghor's anthology, and from Jahn's anthology, Schwarzer Orpheus (1954). Inspired by Presence Africaine and the First Congress of African Writers (Paris, 1956), Black Orpheus published the earliest efforts of African writers in English to find a literary mode of expression" (Encyclopedia Britannica). - Papierbedingt etw. gebräunt, vereinzelt leicht fleckig

        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. .

(#128638). First edition. The author's first book. Collects seventeen stories, of which eight are printed here for the first time. 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.

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.

        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).

Lady Maud Harvey, wife of Sir Oliver, the British ambassador to Paris between 1948 and 1954.

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