        Studio portrait by Dorothy Wilding, signed by both subject and photographer, 1938; together with a copy of Hutton's privately-printed book of poems, The Wayfarer

      Westerham, Kent: Westerham Press Limited,, 1957. Together, 3 items. Photograph (223 × 294 mm) in elaborate gilt frame, glazed. Book in original white vellum lettered and decorated in gilt, printed on art vellum paper, frontispiece portrait by Dulac, gilt edges; original blue-green card slipcase. Together with a print of the frontispiece portrait with additional floral border, framed (by Greville Rhodes, Hambledon, with his ticket). Fine condition. A fine studio portrait of the richest woman in the world, the Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton (1912–1979), the "poor little rich girl" of Noël Coward's song, who was married seven times, but suffered spousal abuse, anorexia, addiction problems, and died virtually penniless; together with a copy of Hutton's privately-printed book of poems, The Wayfarer, and a separate framed print of the Edmund Dulac frontispiece portrait from it. The photograph was one of several different poses from a sitting for Dorothy Wilding in her London studio at 22 Old Bond Street in 1938. Wilding was then at the peak of her renown, having taken a series of royal portraits, including the official coronation portrait of George VI in 1937; she opened a second studio in New York the same year. Hutton was in London frequently at this time, having her villa in Regent's Park rebuilt at huge expense and renamed Winfield Mansion (now the official residence of the US ambassador). The portrait is presented by Wilding in her characteristic stylish manner: the photograph, mounted on different layers of tinted card, is framed by tissue paper; a thick crayon outline surrounds the photograph and her signature is added at the foot. The Wilding art nouveau logo sticker is on the back. The photograph is inscribed by the sitter to her god-daughter Diana Kennerley, "To my favorite little girl Diana, with much love, Auntie Barbara". The book and framed portrait are also from the Kennerley family estate, although without gift inscription. The Wayfarer is a book of her poems privately published and given by her to friends and relatives, with a colour frontispiece portrait by Edmund Dulac (d. 1953), depicting her about the time of her marriage to Cary Grant in 1942. A number of the poems in the book were clearly written at, or inspired by, Sidi Hosni, her palace in Tangier, where she held legendary parties. Also included is a framed print of the Dulac frontispiece portrait, the scalloped oval of the book version embellished with an outer floral border.

        Jungle Song

      Bankok: (Frederic Prokosch). 1957. First. First edition. Batik self-wrappers with gold foil label. 12mo. Fine. One of 44 copies, this copy letter "C" is one of ten lettered copies in browned patterned paper. Inscribed by the author on the front fly with a Christmas greeting. In original mailing envelope hand-addressed by Prokosch (on which an old ink bookseller's description and price appears). A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. OCLC locates five copies. .

        CAT IN THE HAT

      - SEUSS,DR. THE CAT IN THE HAT. NY:Random Hse. (1957). 8vo, flat paper over boards (not glazed paper), 61p., spine extrems and tips worn else VG in dust wrapper. 1st edition of Seuss's first reader, first state of the book in second state dust wrapper issued with no printed price at all. The original price of this book was the cause of considerable confusion and from our research, the sequence appears to be as follows: The first reader was originally published at $2.00. It was so successful that the publisher decided to make a series of beginning readers. They planned to bind the books in glazed paper instead of flat paper. Before the next title was ready, they used the remaining sheets of the first printing and bound them using the remaining flat paper for the cover. Unsure about how to price the series, they printed additional dust wrappers identical to those on the first printing except these had no price at all. When the second title in the Beginner Book series came out, the cover was glazed paper and the Cat In The Hat folllowed suit. The price of 195/195 was settled on and then the wrapper text and book covers were changed completely to reflect the series. Therefore, it is safe to assume that all copies of the Cat in the Hat bound in flat paper are first states. Those with 200/200 price on the dust wrappers are first states of both the book and the dust wrapper. Those copies in flat paper with no printed price at all on the wrapper (the copy offered here) are first states of the book in second state dust wrappers. The importance of this book cannot be overstated. Illustrated in bright color throughout. The importance of this book cannot be overstated. In addition to becoming a household name, the Cat In The Hat is extremely important in the history of education and children's literature. At the same time that it was amusing, it was bringing the basic concepts of reading to tens of thousands of little children who were learning without being "taught". It was a marked departure from the boring Dick and Jane type reader. The challenge of writing an entire book using only 220 different words and making the book enjoyable was enormous. Teachers began to use this book in their classrooms and it was not long before the Cat In The Hat became an American icon. Younger / Hirsch 7.2 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        If All Men Were Beggars

      London: MacGibbon & Kee. 1957. First. First English edition. Translated by P.D. Cummins. Top corners bumped, else very good in near fine dustwrapper with a little age-toning, and a couple small nicks and tears. Author's fourth book, like the first three, set among the lowly of Egypt. Very nicely Inscribed by the author in French to American expatriate author James Jones and his wife Gloria.

        Atlas Shrugged

      New York: Random House, 1957 First edition, first printing. Publisher's green cloth, with the author's initials stamped to the front board in gilt, spine stamped in black and gilt; in the original pictorial dust jacket designed by George Salter, with an illustration of a train track and railway underpass to the front panel, lettered in white and pink, photograph of the author by Phyllis Cerf to the rear panel. Fine book; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, bright and unfaded spine, tiny nick to the front hinge, fresh panels. A superb copy. Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's fourth and last novel, and it is also her longest book. Set in a fictional dystopian future, Atlas Shrugged paints a picture of what the United States would look like if its best skilled workers, in refusal of being taxed, simply stopped doing their jobs. The title comes from the mythological figure of the Titans named Atlas, who was charged by the gods to hold up the sky and is often depicted as carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. Of all Rand's novels, Atlas Shrugged is the most infused with her personal philosophical system called Objectivism, which she would later outline in her 1961 For the New Intellectual.. Illus. by Salter, George. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Sun and Shadow

      Kenneth J Carpenter: Quenian Press, Berkeley 1957 - One of about ninety copies (the limitation unstated) of this delicate chapbook, the first separate edition of a story that had earlier appeared in THE GOLDEN APPLES OF THE SUN (1953). SUN AND SHADOW was the first consciously artistic treatment of Bradbury's work by a small press. Yet, intended in the spirit of ephemera (a gift "for members of the Roxburghe Club of San Francisco and other friends"), it steers clear of the stale sense of "manufactured rarity" that hangs around many of Bradbury's later limited editions, which often seem to be limited just for the sake of being so. The soft paper wraps are slightly rumpled; still near fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
