        Domestic Manners of the Americans [Association copy Signed by Sadleir]

      London: Routledge, 1957. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing thus, of this report on American manners, the first edition with an introduction by famed bibliographer and man of letters Michael Sadleir (some pushing at the spine ends, tiny rubs at spine ends and board corners, foxing to the closed page block's edge, offsetting to the free endpapers), in a Very Good dust jacket (showing foxing and with an irregular leading edge to the front flap -- presumably a production flaw and a closed diagonal tear to the rear panel near the spine head and repaired by a piece of tape to the jacket's verso), SIGNED BY MICHAEL SADLEIR on the half-title and THERE PRESENTED TO HIS VALUED ASSISTANT MARTHA SMITH as follows: "for Martha Smith from / (on behalf of Frances Trollope) / Michael Sadleir." Anthony Trollope's father was a lawyer whose law practice suffered from the elder Trollope's habit of yelling at his Clients. Ultimately, the father took up farming, at which he also was a miserable failure. In 1827, Frances moved to America, living first in Fanny Wright's utopian community in Tennessee and, when that community failed, removing to Cincinnati, a frontier town at the time, to open a general store. As Frances Trollope had no experience in that line of work, the store was a miserable failure as well, adding to the family's financial stress. However, after her return to England, the indomitable Mrs. Trollope, having observed the cultural peculiarities of the Americans first-hand, wrote "Domestic Manners of the Americans" (1832), in which she presented a caustic view of the Americans, presenting them as uneducated and lacking in proper manners, and in which she described America's appalling middle-class egalitarianism. Acerbic and witty, the book was an instant sensation in England and brought her from the brink of financial ruin to prosperity and fame. Of course, the book was not well received in America and of it Mark Twain said "Mrs. Trollope was so handsomely cursed and reviled by this nation [for] telling the truth... she was painting a state of things which did not change at once. ... I remember it." Frances Trollope went on to further literary success and fame by authoring numerous well-received novels. Without doubt her experiences shaped her the careers of her two most literary sons, Thomas Adolphus Trollope, and the more famous Anthony Trollope. A Very Good copy, WITH A WONDERFUL PRESENTATION FROM MICHAEL SADLEIR TO MARTHA SMITH.

        Poems of Dedication

      London: Faber and Faber Limited,, 1957. Octavo. Original grey cloth, titles to spine in silver. Cloth a little rubbed and toned with some light spotting, two bumps to edges of boards. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author to poet Paul Éluard on the front free endpaper, "Paul Eluard, With all good wishes from Stephen Spender, [?] 1947". Spender met Éluard in Paris during the 1930s. "In Paris, Spender moved easily among an intellectual stream which was still vital. He visited and revisited Picasso in his studio; called on Louis Aragon in his 'book-lined flat'; conversed at length in rive gauche cafés with the minimalist Francis Ponge and Paul Éluard (whose poems he would later translate)" (Sutherland, Stephen Spender, p. 305). An excellent association.

        The Cat in the Hat

      Random House, 1957. While clearly loved, this copy remains well-kept. The pages show a little gentle spotting at the first five leaves, prior owners' names penned neatly at the front free endpaper, and two more faint spots at the last two pages, but are otherwise clean and surprisingly bright; the entirety of the page block was bound as a single sewn signature in paper (not glossy) pictorial boards (with no number printed at the lower spine); the boards now show rub-through at the lower corners and spine heel, gentler rubbing at head and heel edges and spine head, a short, closed tear in the lower joint, and just a little faint age-toning at head and heel, otherwise quite clean and bright. The dust jacket is, unfortunately, priceclipped but has a description at the front flap describing the anticipated success of the book and its raison d'etre (the rear flap has a picture and biography of the author, and no publish/print location); the chalkboard depicted at the rear says only "Educators hail The CAT in the HAT*" and gives four reviews, a miniature repeat of the front cover, a publisher's address in New York 22, N.Y., and no mention whatever of the Beginner Books to come. The jacket shows a short, closed tear with accompanying creases at the lower rear, a very short crease and tear at the upper rear, short, partially open tears with creasing at the spine head and heel, modest surface creasing at the spine and foreedges, rubbing and a little chipping at corners and spine tips, a little toning and surface soil evident in the white areas of the rear panel, three tiny scratches at the lower front, and a little faint pencil ghosting inside the letters of the title at front where a child traced them - an oddly charming touch, considering the fact that this book, upon its hope-filled first printing, was to change our very concept of child literacy education in the United States. The jacket is now protected in a clear, removable, archivally safe sleeve, and the book now resides in a climate-controlled room.. First Printing. Hard Cover. Good/Good.

        Domestic Manners of the Americans [Association copy Signed by Sadleir]

      London: Routledge, 1957. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing thus, of this report on American manners, the first edition with an introduction by famed bibliographer and man of letters Michael Sadleir (some pushing at the spine ends, tiny rubs at spine ends and board corners, foxing to the closed page block's edge, offsetting to the free endpapers), in a Very Good dust jacket (showing foxing and with an irregular leading edge to the front flap -- presumably a production flaw and a closed diagonal tear to the rear panel near the spine head and repaired by a piece of tape to the jacket's verso), SIGNED BY MICHAEL SADLEIR on the half-title and THERE PRESENTED TO HIS VALUED ASSISTANT MARTHA SMITH as follows: "for Martha Smith from / (on behalf of Frances Trollope) / Michael Sadleir." Anthony Trollope's father was a lawyer whose law practice suffered from the elder Trollope's habit of yelling at his Clients. Ultimately, the father took up farming, at which he also was a miserable failure. In 1827, Frances moved to America, living first in Fanny Wright's utopian community in Tennessee and, when that community failed, removing to Cincinnati, a frontier town at the time, to open a general store. As Frances Trollope had no experience in that line of work, the store was a miserable failure as well, adding to the family's financial stress. However, after her return to England, the indomitable Mrs. Trollope, having observed the cultural peculiarities of the Americans first-hand, wrote "Domestic Manners of the Americans" (1832), in which she presented a caustic view of the Americans, presenting them as uneducated and lacking in proper manners, and in which she described America's appalling middle-class egalitarianism. Acerbic and witty, the book was an instant sensation in England and brought her from the brink of financial ruin to prosperity and fame. Of course, the book was not well received in America and of it Mark Twain said "Mrs. Trollope was so handsomely cursed and reviled by this nation [for] telling the truth... she was painting a state of things which did not change at once. ... I remember it." Frances Trollope went on to further literary success and fame by authoring numerous well-received novels. Without doubt her experiences shaped her the careers of her two most literary sons, Thomas Adolphus Trollope, and the more famous Anthony Trollope. A Very Good copy, WITH A WONDERFUL PRESENTATION FROM MICHAEL SADLEIR TO MARTHA SMITH.

        SORROWS OF PRIAPUS

      Norfolk, CT.: A New Directions Book composed and printed at the Thistle Press in New York, [1957]. FIRST and LIMITED edition, one of only 150 numbered copies SIGNED by both the author and the illustrator, Ben Shahn. Printed on Arches mould-made paper. With the scarce, extra lithograph signed by Ben Shahn, laid-in as called for. Illustrated throughout with many drawings by Ben Shahn, many of which are full page, printed by offset lithography in ochre. 4to, publisher’s original full parchment covered boards by Russell-Rutter, the upper board with a large initial “P” in gilt, the spine gilt lettered, in the original publisher’s paper-covered slipcase with printed label, t.e.g. 119, [1] pp. A beautiful copy, internally pristine and as new, the parchment just a bit toned on the spine as is typical, the slipcase in fine condition with just the lightest hint of age mellowing. LIMITED TO ONLY 150 COPIES, and a beautiful production produced at the Thistle Press. The extra lithograph, which is signed by Ben Shahn is included with this copy, the lithograph is frequently lacking. The work deals with the mind and body in myth and experience in vastly differing cultures. The first part is devoted to the heritage of the Western World, particularly Hebraic and Hellenistic traditions; the second ranges pre-Columbian America. The astonishing erudition is to fuse the two cultures into a common legacy of almost unimaginable richness. Shahn's “primitive modern” artistic approach seems a perfect match for the subject matter at hand.
