        Maschinengeschriebener Brief von Uwe Johnson an Herrn Dietrich Engel.

      1957. 1957 - 8°. 21,0 x 14,5 cm. unpaginierte Seiten, (signiert) In sehr gutem Zustand. Briefumschlag von Hand geöffnet, sonst, ebenso wie der Brief selbst, sehr gut erhalten. Der Brief (1 Seite) ist maschinengeschrieben (Vorderseite), ebenso der Umschlag, adressiert, frankiert und gestempelt (Güstrow vom 2.4. 1957). Der Brief schließt mit einer handschriftlichen kurzen Signatur Uwe Johnsons. Der Adressat Johnson verschickte den Brief unter dem c/o Hensan aus Rostock. Alice Hensan stellte eine Vertrauensadresse für Uwe Johnson dar und war eine Quartiergeberin und Freundin in Rostock (Quelle Jahrbücher der Uwe-Johnson-Gesellschaft). Der Inhalt des Briefes vom 2. April 1957 (also wohl vor seinen ersten Veröffentlichungen) offenbart hier schon die sprachlichen Feinheiten des deutschen Schriftstellers. Es ist eine witzige, ironische "Abrechnung" der Schulzeit mit dem Empfänger des Briefes Herrn Dietrich Engel, Lehrer an der Oberschule Jüterbog. Brief im zugehörigen Briefumschlag, ,

        Atlas Shrugged

      New York: Random House. (1957). Fourth printing. Very slightly cocked else fine in a crisp, very near fine dustwrapper with a couple of tiny tears and some toning to the white spine lettering. Inscribed by the author on the front fly and dated in 1968. A recent study of Rand's cultural legacy concluded that no single work of the 20th Century had influenced more individual readers than this objectivist allegory. Additionally, Harper's Index reports that 12% of all Playboy Playmates since 1959 claimed either this or Rand's The Fountainhead as their favorite book -- our attempts to use this copy as bait have as yet been unsuccessful. A major title, seldom found inscribed. .

        Typed Contract signed between William Faulkner and Twentieth-Century Fox, assigning the motion picture rights to THE SOUND AND THE FURY

      Beverly Hills, Calif: Twentieth Century-Fox, March 22, 1957. 8-1/2 x 11 inches. 11 pages (contract) + one page of Notary's witness (Bertha L. Dannay, Notary Public, State of New York); with single rider on overslip on page 7, initialled by Faulkner. In all, 12 pages. Holes punched in the left margin. In original typed blue paper folder. Excellent condition . 27 years after the publication of Faulkner's daring, controversial, and experimental novel, Hollywood was clearly interested in adapting the now-famous writer's book to the screen. In this contract Faulkner agrees to assign the movie rights to Twentieth Century Fox for a period of 7 years. In 1959, Fox's version of The Sound and The Fury -- which can at best only be called a loose adaptation of Faulkner's text -- was released, starring Joanne Wooward as Quentin Compson, and Yul Brynner as Jason. Interestingly, the contract specifically mentions prior agreements ("of no further force or effect") between Faulkner and Columbia Pictures in 1955

Rosalind Franklin, whose X-ray photographs of DNA were crucial to Watson and Crick's discovery of the molecule's double helix structure in 1953, began researching the molecular structure of selected plant viruses after moving from King's College to Birkbeck College in mid-1953. She was aided in this work by Aaron Klug, who would later win the 1982 Nobel Prize in chemistry for developing crystallographic electron microscopy and for elucidating the structure of biologically important nucleic acid-protein complexes. The two began investigating the structure of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), making several important discoveries regarding the arrangement of the virus's protein subunits and RNA strand; later in their researches Klug and Franklin agreed to divide the work, with Franklin taking on TMV and other rod-shaped plant viruses, and Klug concentrating on spherical plant viruses such as turnip yellow mosaic virus (TYMV). Klug continued his virus researches after Franklin's death, first at Birkbeck and later at Cambridge University's MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, which he joined in 1962.The present papers report "the early stages of an X-ray diffraction study of crystals of turnip yellow mosaic virus (TYMV). This has shown that the virus particle has cubic symmetry, with a strong pseudo-symmetry higher than that of the cubic unit cell of the crystal, and has given an indication of what the actual arrangement of the protein sub-units might be" ("The structure of turnip yellow mosaic virus: X-ray diffraction studies," p. 242). Klug, Franklin and Finch briefly announced their findings in Nature (no. [1] above), following up with a longer paper published in Biochimica et biophysica acta (no. [2] above).

Fine, square and tight with lightly dust-soiled top edge; better than Near Fine jacket (priced-clipped), lightly dust-soiled and rubbed to ends of spine-panel. Burgess 99. "The Alexandria Quartet is one of those works that seem to draw upon and sum up a multitude of works and writers and bodies of knowledge that have come before. Sources specific to Egypt include Constantine Cavafy's poetry and E. M. Forster's Alexandria: A History and a Guide. Other sources range from The Arabian Nights to accounts of the life of occult philosopher Paracelsus, from the obsessive erotic catalogues of the Marquis de Sade (who wrote his own Justine and who provides three of the volumes with epigraphs) to the thrillers of John Buchan. Freud is here (providing a psychological framework and yet another epigraph), as well as his student Georg Groddeck. Durrell also utilizes Einstein's theory of relativity, recounting the same events from multiple viewpoints within the first three volumes, then advancing the characters and situations through the fourth dimension, time, in the fourth and final volume. . . . Whatever the merits of the works his contemporaries were producing in the 1950s, most of those seemed cautious and provincial compared to Durrell's unabashedly romantic and experimental novels."

        A Time To Keep Silence.

      John Murray, London 1957 - First edition of the author's third book, regarding his experiences in various monasteries. Octavo, original blue cloth.

The recipient was Mary Anna Marten (with her bookplate to the inside gutter), who was the daughter of the 3rd and last Lord Alington of Crichel and later trustee of The British Museum. Near fine in the original dust jacket with a chip to the crown of the spine and overall wear. "More than a history or travel journal, however, this beautiful short book is a meditation on the meaning of silence and solitude for modern life" (New York Review of Books). "His shortest book (and to my mind his best) its hammered terseness is a good match for the sobriety of the subject" (Anthony Lane, The New Yorker).

        An archive of 6 autograph letters signed to book illustrator and friend Don Freeman, 1956-1957, and academic Frank Stirling

      N.p., N.p. 1957 - An archive of 6 autograph letters signed by Kenneth Millar (a.k.a. Ross Macdonald), 4 to book illustrator, longtime friend, and Santa Barbara neighbor Don Freeman, and 2 to an old professor and mentor from Ontario, Frank Stirling.A fascinating and unique collection of correspondence from Millar, full of personal inquiries, casual observations, and progress reports on children and mutual friends. Important, however, is a subtext regarding the author's ongoing psychoanalysis and the effect it was having on his life and work: "Heavens, you'd think from that remark that I was being analyzed. [I am] rediscovering the country of my childhood which isn't so very different from adult country, as Salinger people like you would be the first to agree. I'd say I'm well on through into the middle of it, too, and just wrote a good book ["The Galton Case"] quite fast by way of proving it." And again, "I suppose my best personal news is that the effect of analysis (I'm approaching termination) has been to reawaken, by some of the most extraordinary experiences, my interest in writing poetry, and I've come back after twenty years not with a whimper but a bang." The 2 letters to Frank Stirling come just before and just after a trip that reunited Millar with his old friend, respectively, and say much about the author's frustrations over trying to express himself in a literary fashion within the restrictions of the crime fiction genre.More than 2500 words in all, with each letter signed, "Ken." An intimate set of documents revealing much about a very private man, today a legend in the pantheon of literary crime fiction. Near Fine, onionskin stock, each letter dated with the author's address in Menlo Park. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
