        Talented Mr. Ripley, The

      London: Cresset Press, 1957. First Impression. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. First UK Edition. 8vo; 266pp. Publisher's red cloth, the spine lettered in gilt (a bit dulled); in a pictorial dust jacket lettered in black and priced at 15/-. Offsetting to the end papers, spotting to the page edges and the first and final few leaves, otherwise a clean, Near Fine copy, in a Near Fine jacket with a lightly faded and toned spine (the head of which has very shallow chipping), and a soiled back panel; the front panel sharp and bright. This, Highsmith's third novel, introduces Tom Ripley, sexually ambiguous con artist featured in five of her novels, popularly known as the Ripliad, written between 1955 and 1991. After a television adaptation in 1956, the novel was filmed by René Clément with Alain Delon, praised by Highsmith as the ideal Ripley. Re-filmed in 1999, with Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law and Cate Blanchett. Yet another example of the value to be found in the graphically superior designs of most UK editions of American authors' works (our specialty). According to Highsmith's talented biographer, Joan Schenkar, the 'Dark Lady of American Letters' has always taken as her subject, in all her writing, "the double, the Alter Ego, and its natural enabler: the alluring and dangerous act of self-transformation. She first proposed it in "Strangers on a Train" [her first masterpiece], turning Plato upside down to make it work: 'There's also a person exactly the opposite of you, like the unseen part of you, somewhere in the world, and he waits in ambush.' In The Talented Mr. Ripley [Highsmith's second, uncontested masterpiece], she gave it a triumphant shape—the shape of the American Dream—and a successful form in the character of Tom Ripley, a young grifter of indeterminate sexuality, who, like his creator, wants only 'the best' in life, slips in and out of different roles with ease, confuses love with murder, and gets away with everything." Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.&

        The Variorum Edition of the Poems of W. B. Yeats

      NY: The Macmillan Company. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1957. Limited Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover. Signed, Limited edition (No. 642 of 825). Signed by W. B. Yeats on the limitation page. Quarter bound in publisher's red cloth over gray cloth, gilt lettering on spine, top edge blue. Includes Preface, Introduction, Bibliography, Collations, Appendices, Index to Titles, and Index to First Lines. In the 1930's, W. B. Yeats signed 825 unbound pages, and his publisher, The Macmillan Company, held them. In 1939 Yeats died. In 1957 the signed sheets were bound into the first 825 copies of the Variorum Edition. Each copy was then wrapped for mailing. Somehow, 250 copies were misplaced in the Macmillan warehouse in New York. They turned up in the summer of 1963 when the contents of the warhouse were moved to New Jersey. All 250 copies were purchased by Kroch's & Brentano's for the members of the First Edition Circle. This is the definitive variorum edition of Yeats' poems. It was the editors' intention to note all of the changes that Yeats made to his poems in the course of their successive printings. The record begins in 1885 with the edition of The Dublin University Review which contained first two published poems; it ends with the two-volume definitive edition of his poetry in 1949, the proofs of which he had corrected shortly before his death in 1939. Poems that he published separately, in either periodical or book, but that he did not include in the definitive edition are included here in the section entitled "Poems Not Included in the Definitive Edition." . This is an extremely clean, little-used copy, unmarked, tight and square; the final page (only) is lightly creased, with a couple of small, closed tears, else as new. The scarce original slipcase is mildly worn along the fore-edges only, and lightly sunned, but structurally sound. VERY GOOD/VERY GOOD (slipcase). .

        A fabulous archive of two Harry Truman TLS's and related correspondence: <I>"...how very untrustworthy Republicans are."</I>

      The two TLS's from Harry Truman are in response to two letters from friends about the same subject: a stolen cigarette case. In chronological order, the first letter is from Peyton H. Moss to the President, dated November 15, 1957, relating a conversation between Mr. Moss and his friend Mr. Gans about a cigarette case Gans had received from the President as a thank-you gift for Gans' help with Truman's 1948 campaign in New York. Gans then reluctantly "lent" the case to a Republican acquaintance, to be used as a practical joke with a family member. He never received it back. The President's reply reads: "Dear Mr. Moss: I am sorry that Mr. Gans lost his lighter and am sending you another which I hope you will be kind enough to give to him for me. It is a better one, I believe, than the one he lost and the last of my supply. Sincerely yours, (signed) Harry S. Truman". The next letter is from Mr. Gans to the President, relating the story again about the purloined cigarette case, and thanking hi
