        Doktor Zhivago. (Schiwago)

      Milano, Feltrinelli, (1957).. 2 Blatt, 566 Seiten, 1 Blatt. Grüner Original-Pappband mit illustriertem Original-Schutzumschlag. - Minimal bestoßen, der Schutzumschlag mit kleineren Läsuren. Auf dem Vorsatz Notizen in Bleistift über den holländischen Übersetzer Scheepmaker, der die redigierte Ausgabe von 1959 nutzte. Papierbedingt etwas stockfleckig, vorderes Vorsatzpapier mit kleinem Ausriss. - Green paper boards, with the original dust jacket (chipped at spine-ends and corners). Some foxing on the first pages and a minor piece torn out on the paste down.. Sehr seltene russische Ausgabe, die bei Feltrinelli in Mailand erschienen ist. Das Nobel-Preis Komitee hatte Pasternak (1890-1960) für den Literatur-Nobel Preis vorgeschlagen. Aber eine russische Ausgabe seines Buches "Doktor Schiwago" existierte nicht, sie durfte in Russland bis 1988 nicht erscheinen. So wurde mit Hilfe des amerikanischen Geheimdienstes dem Nobel Preis Komitee eine russische Vorab-Ausgabe vorgelegt, der Verleger zwar benannt, aber das Copyright verschwiegen. Daraufhin stand Feltrinelli unter Druck. Er hatte es zwar verlegt, diese Ausgabe war nicht redigiert und voller Fehler. Der CIA bezahlte daraufhin die Druckkosten. Pasternak wurde für den Nobel Preis vorgeschlagen, die sowjetische Kulturpolitik setzte ihm dann Repressalien aus. Er wurde aus der Schriftsteller-Vereinigung ausgeschlossen und ihm wurde die Annahme des Nobel-Preises verweigert. Die erste, fehlerfreie und von Jacqueline de Proyart redigierte russische Ausgabe erschien in Ann Arbor in der Michigan University Press im Jahre 1959. Diese öffentliche Feltrinelli Ausgabe erschien etwa zeitgleich. Rare first public edition of Doctor Zhivago. This book caused the worst crizis of the Soviet literature politics. In 1958 Pasternak was nominated for the noble prize for this novel. But there was no Russian edition, while the discussion was ongoing. The American Secret Service distributed copies to the Nobel Prize Committee with Feltrinellis name on it, but without a copyright note. Feltrinelli was now in difficult situation, he published it and the costs were paid by the CIA. The American Secret Service tried to influence while the Cold War the Russian cultural politics and they were interested in Pasternak as a Noble Prize Winner. The Soviet press began to criticize Pasternak and it was forbidden for him to accept the Nobel Prize. Furtheron he was isolated and expelled from the Soviet Writer's Association. The first edited and correct Russian version was published in the Ann Arbor Michigan Press in 1959, and in 1988 was the first Russian edition published in Russia itself. - Compare THE MOSCOW NEWS, # 18,2007 and Cornwell "Reference Guide to Russian Literature, p 617,624.

        Some Came Running

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New Brunswick 1957 - xii+1266 pages. Thick octavo (8 1/2" x 5 3/4") bound in half red cloth with black lettering to spine and cover. Inscribed to Davis Grubb. First edition. James Jones's second published novel, Some Came Running (1957), had its roots in the abandoned first effort. In contrast to Eternity, it was savaged by the critics. They were especially harsh with the frequently misspelled words and punctuation errors; they didn't recognize that such elements were a conscious style choice by Jones to evoke the provinciality of the novel's characters and setting. Jones apparently played around with this style in several short stories written at about the same time as Some Came Running (later collected in The Ice-Cream Headache and Other Stories), only to abandon it altogether by the time he finished The Thin Red Line in 1962, in favor of the blunt but more grammatically sound style most associated with Jones today. Some Came Running was immediately adapted as film starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine, which was critically acclaimed and nominated for several Oscars. Davis Grubb (July 23, 1919 - July 24, 1980) was an American novelist and short story writer. Born in Moundsville, West Virginia, Grubb wanted to combine his creative skills as a painter with writing and as such attended the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. However, his color blindness was a handicap he could not overcome and he gave up on painting to dedicate himself to writing fiction. He did, however, make a number of drawings and sketches during the course of his career, some of which were incorporated into his writings. In 1940, Grubb moved to New York City where he worked at NBC radio as a writer while using his free time to write short stories. In the mid 1940s he was successful in selling several short stories to major magazines and in the early 1950s he started writing a full length novel. Influenced by accounts of economic hardship by depression-era Americans that his mother had seen first hand as a social worker, Grubb produced a dark tale that mixed the plight of poor children and adults with that of the evil inflicted by others. The Night of the Hunter became an instant bestseller and was voted a finalist for the 1955 National Book Award. That same year, the book was made into a motion picture that is now regarded as a classic. Deemed "culturally significant" by the Library of Congress, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. Grubb went on to write a further nine novels and several collections of short stories. His 1969 novel Fools' Parade would also be made into a motion picture starring James Stewart. Some of Grubb's short stories were adapted for television by Alfred Hitchcock and by Rod Serling for his Night Gallery series. Grubb died in New York City in 1980. His novel Ancient Lights was published posthumously in 1982, and St. Martins Press published 18 of his short stories in a book collection titled You Never Believe Me and Other Stories. Condition: Inscribed by Jones on half title. Touch of rubbing to spine ends. Jacket spine ends lightly chipped with some rubbed, some light wear to edges with some small closed tears, price clipped else a near fine copy in like jacket.

        You Don't Have to Die - The Amazing Story of the Hoxsey Cancer Treatment

      New York: Milestone. Hardcover. 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. Somewhat above-average wear to dust jacket which is now preserved in glossy new archival-grade Brodart cover. A sound copy of this important medical history. . Good. 1957. Second Printing.
