        How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

      New York: Random House, 1957. First edition, first printing with all issue points: Cat in the Hat on back cover of book with 14 titles (up to now) listed on the rear flap and a list of 13 books printed at the end of the book. Dust jacket price reads 250/250. Inscribed twice by Dr. Seuss to the same recipient, "For Juanito with Best Wishes- Dr. Seuss." Dr. Seuss has signed on the verso of the front free endpaper and the verson of the half title page. Illustrated in black and red. Original illustrated glossy paper boards, pictorial endpapers. Very good with some rubbing to the boards as usual, expert restoration to a tear in the rear endpaper in a very good dust jacket. Clearly the Grinch has been the most memorable Christmas villain to undergo redemption since Ebenezer Scrooge. To some degree, Ted identified with the Grinch… When asked why he wrote the book, Dr. Seuss replied, 'I was brushing my teeth on the morning of the 26th of last December when I noted a very Grinch-ish countenance in the mirror. It was Seuss! So I wrote the story about my sour friend, the Grinch, to see if I could rediscover something about Christmas that obviously I'd lost.' It was no coincidence that, when the book appeared in 1957, the Grinch complained, 'For fifty-three years I've put up with it now…' Ted, of course, was born in 1904… After The Cat in the Hat and The Grinch, Ted's reputation grew exponentially" (Cohen, 329-30).

        On The Road

      New York: Viking Press, 1957.. New York: Viking Press, 1957. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Very good in the original dust jacket which has had some profesional restoration. What makes this copy interesting, is that it is from Columbia University Library Lending Service. It was taken out between Sep 11, 57 and ended Dec 3, 1957. The slip on the reverse is the only library mark. Kerouac came to Columbia on a football scholarship. In reality, though, he had been recruited by more football-friendly Boston College, and chose Columbia for its New York literary connections instead. He turned fully to writing after a broken leg in 1940, his first year"(New York Times). He enjoyed Professors Mark Van Doren and Raymond Weaver, and got an A in Van Doren's Shakespeare class. The raucous, exuberant, often wildly funny account of a journey through America and Mexico, Jack Kerouac's On the Road instantly defined a generation on its publication in 1957: it was, in the words of a New York Times reviewer, "the clearest and most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as 'beat.'" Written in the mode of ecstatic improvisation that Allen Ginsberg described as "spontaneous bop prosody," Kerouac's novel remains electrifying in its thirst for experience and its defiant rebuke of American conformity. In his portrayal of the fervent relationship between the writer Sal Paradise and his outrageous, exasperating, and inimitable friend Dean Moriarty, Kerouac created one of the great friendships in American literature; and his rendering of the cities and highways and wildernesses that his characters restlessly explore are a hallucinatory travelogue of a nation he both mourns and celebrates. "On the Road has become a classic of the Beat Movement with its stream-of-consciousness depiction of the rejection of mainstream American values set in a physical and metaphysical journey across America" (Book in America, 136).

Importante rassegna di architettura, fondata da Adriano Olivetti nel 1957 e che conobbe una diffusione irregolare. Zodiac, sia per l'intervento dei maggiori architetti contemporanei, sia per la ricchezza delle collaborazioni internazionali (strutturate in redazioni attive anche in America latina e Giappone), sia per la splendida veste grafica dei fascicoli, non trova paragoni nel panorama editoriale contemporaneo. Ben conservato.
