        Golda Meir

      , c. 1957-1965. c. 1957-1965. Exceedingly rare Autograph Letter Signed "Golda" as Israeli Foreign Minister, on her 3.75" x 2" business card imprinted in Hebrew "Golda Meir/Foreign Minister." In Hebrew, translated. To Baruch (Zuckerman). In full "Dear Baruch, I am very sorry that I will not be able to attend your birthday, along with your whole family. A thrombosis in my leg has put me in the hospital. Had I come I would have asked for permission to say what is in my heart. I will wait for another opportunity and for now I will only send you my best wishes and many returns. I send my love to you, Nina and the girls." As Golda Meir served as Israeli Foreign Minister from July 1956 to January 1966 and Baruch Zuckerman's birthday was June 26th, this letter must have been written between 1957 and 1965. When she announced her retirement as Foreign Minister, Meir cited her health problems as part of the reason, so the letter, penned from her hospital bed, was most probably written in the early 1960s. It is in fine condition with an indiscernible mid-vertical fold. Autograph Letters Signed of Golda Meir are virtually unobtainable. In the last 27 years, while Meir Typed Letters Signed have appeared at major auction houses from time to time, not one ALS has ever been offered for sale. This one, written to an early Zionist leader, is one of exceptional Israeli historical association.Baruch Zuckerman (1887-1970) emigrated from Poland to the United States in 1904 and, inspired by Herzl, founded the Poale Zion Publishing Association in New York which published the works of leading Zionists who sought to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Poale Zion (Hebrew for Workers of Zion) was a movement of Marxist Zionist workers circles founded in various Russian cities around 1900 and in New York City in 1903. He was executive director of the People's Relief Committee from 1915 to 1924 when it disbanded, and accompanied Herbert Hoover and investment banker Herbert Lehman to Poland to bring food and clothing to those in need. After World War I, Poale Zion in Palestine was merged by David Ben-Gurion into the Achdut Ha'avoda party which eventually became Mapai of which Golda Meir was a member and later secretary-general. Zuckerman, leader of the American Poale Zion, was one of the founders and officers of the American Jewish Congress and president of the Labor Zionist Organization of America which Meir joined in 1915. After Nina and Baruch Zuckerman and their daughters moved to Jerusalem in 1932, their house became a meeting place for the leaders of the Zionist Movement. Golda Meir had to go back to America with her two children because her daughter Sara had kidney trouble for which suitable treatment was not available in Palestine. Her husband Morris Meyerson, who stayed behind, moved in with the Zuckermans. "Everyone thought Morris Meyerson was our father because our father was never home," recalls Baruch's younger daughter Nomi. In 1937, Nomi Zuckerman graduated high school and went to study at a teacher's seminary in Tel Aviv. Golda Meir had already returned so Nomi moved in with Golda's family and helped to run the household, "although," recalled Nomi, "Golda baked the Shabbat cake." While his wife and daughters remained in Palestine, Baruch Zuckerman's many activities as an emissary precluded him from residing in Israel until his retirement in 1956.

        On The Road

      New York: The Viking Press, 1957. First edition of Kerouac's classic novel. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in an excellent dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. Jacket design by Bill English. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. 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). It is the basis for the 2012 film featuring Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Alice Braga, Amy Adams, Tom Sturridge, Danny Morgan, Elisabeth Moss, Kirsten Dunst, and Viggo Mortensen. The executive producers were Francis Ford Coppola, Patrick Batteux, Jerry Leider, and Tessa Ross.

        "Synthesis of the Elements in Stars"

      First edition in the original wrappers of this key work of 20th-century cosmology which showed that most of the elements that make up the universe are formed by nuclear reactions in the interiors of stars. This copy with the ownership signature of Stanford University high-energy physicist Herbert Conrad de Staebler on the cover. Margaret Burbidge was a pioneering astronomer whose did important work on quasars and distant galaxies; the masses and rotation of galaxies (supervising Vera Rubin in this subject early in her career); and instrumentation for the Hubble Space Telescope. She was the first woman to serve as Director of the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, though the customary honorary title of Astronomer Royal was denied to her. This magisterial, 100-page paper has been described as "one of the most authoritative and comprehensive works of modern science" (Oxford Dictionary of Scientists, p. 268). It explains in detail how heavier elements like carbon and iron are produced in stars from lighter ones such as hydrogen and helium; posits the chemical evolution of the universe from the activity of stars; and provides observational evidence from stellar spectral line emulsions. It is now taken for granted by the general public, as well as by scientists, that the universe as we know it exists thanks to the synthesis of elements in the early stars. As Carl Sagan famously put it, "We are all star stuff". A beautiful copy of this important work. ...in Reviews of Modern Physics volume 29, number 4. Lancaster PA & New York: American Physical Society, October 1957. Quarto. Original orange wrappers printed in black. Ownership signature "De Staebler" to the upper wrapper. Professionally rebacked to style. Minor bump to head of spine, minor creasing to the lower corner, spine and adjacent edges of wrappers faded, wrappers and contents overall fresh. An excellent copy.

        From Russia, With Love.

      Jonathan Cape, London 1957 - First edition of the fifth novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series. Octavo, original cloth. An excellent example in a very good dust jacket with light rubbing to the extremities. Signed by Sean Connery on the title page, who played James Bond in the film. Jacket design by Richard Chopping. "Described in the Times Literary Supplement as ‘most brilliant,’ the book was a great commercial success and helped to launch Fleming as a best-selling novelist It ended with Bond seriously wounded and nearly killed by fugu poison from the sex organs of the Japanese globe-fish While the ending was not quite Sherlock Holmes and his apparently fatal last struggle with evil at the Reichenbach Falls, Fleming had provided himself with an opportunity to remove his hero. He was not, however, to take it. There was public agitation when 007 was reported dead. Bond was irreplaceable" (Black, 27, 30). "This is a very highly sought after title, as it is generally considered the best novel in the series and the best of the movies, as well" (Biondi & Pickard, 44). Made into the 1964 film of the same title with Sean Connery as Bond and Lotte Lenya as ex-KGB agent Rosa Klebb. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Angel.

      London: Peter Davies,, 1957. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine silver. With the dust jacket. Some faint marks to cloth, light spotting to edges and a strip of tanning to endpapers, a very good copy in the jacket rubbed at the extremities with small chips to the ends and corners and with a faint ring to front panel. First edition, first impression. The novel relates the publishing successes of a disturbingly unreflective and romantic young girl, based in part on late-Victorian novelist Marie Corelli. Matthew Walther observed (in a Spectator review of the recent reissue of Angel with an introduction by Hilary Mantel) how Angel, "convinced of her own genius... writes tawdry bestseller after tawdry bestseller and torments everyone around her... The book is not really a roman à clef so much as it is a kind of horrifying anti-memoir, Taylor's sounding of her own experience and dredging up her worst fears as a young female writer: mawkishness, philistinism, naïveté, stupidity, solipsism.

        Atlas Shrugged

      New York: Random House(1957). 1st edition/1st printing, Random House, 1957. NF+/NF+. Stated First Printing with all the correct points met for book and dustjacket. A lovely copy of this bulky book and fragile dustjacket. The Near Fine+ book (really close to Fine) is clean, straight and tightly bound with no soiling and no previous owner marks or names, the binding gilt on the front panel and spine is bright, unscratched and unfaded, binding edges and corners are unworn, and the dark green upper page edges are unfaded and rich in color. The only faults I can see is the usual tiny bit of faint smuding to the extreme outer corners of the bottom page edges from the weight of the book causing them to touch shelving at some point in its life, and an extremely tiny (less than sharpened pencil point sized) ink mark also on the lower page edges. The Near Fine+ price intact dustjacket has the correct '10/57' on the bottom of the front flap, the publisher's name/address on the bottom of the back flap, and the striking colors and design of this famous Salter-designed dustjacket are bright and unfaded. There has been a very small amount of extremely well done professional paper conservationist work that's hard to even see in little areas of the edges near the spine folds and a couple of the flap fold ends, there's just a touch of surface rubbing to the back panel, a mere hint of edge wear to a small portion of the lower back panel edge, and a couple of tiny very slightly toned spots in the white area of the back panel. Beautiful book and dustjacket that presents very near perfectly. This one needs no content synopsis - the author's opus, probably the all-time best selling fiction book with, it seems, never-ending relevance for good or bad as to what's happening in our world well over half a century after the book was published.; 8-11/16" x 6"; 1168 pages, 20, NF/NF, LOC: 5710033

        FIVE IN A ROW SIGNED BY CHESTER HIMES: FOR LOVE OF IMABELLE, REAL COOL KILLERS, THE CRAZY KILL, THE BIG GOLD DREAM, ALL SHOT UP

      Avon & Gold Medal, 1957-1960. 1957-1960, Greenwich & New York - First editions in English (preceded only by editions in French), of the first 5 novels in Himes’ series of Harlem crime stories starring his gritty and wily police detectives Grave Digger Jones and Coffin Ed Johnson. All are in original wrappers (preceding the hardbound editions). Paper toned to light tan in 3 else all are nearly fine. All 5 are signed in ink (4 are also inscribed). All are plenty scarce. Sharp copies. Chester Himes was angry about the racism he saw in college, got expelled, then busted, and then imprisoned, and while there began to write about black protagonists doomed by white racism and self hate. He was ignored at home but admired overseas, so in the midâ€" 1950s he selfâ€"exiled to France. Marcel Duhamel, a French actor who used his money to found the Sà rie Noir Publishing imprint, met Himes, intuited that he was writing the wrong plotlines, and handed him a $1,000 advance for a detective novel. Himes had read Dashiell Hammett while in prison, so it only took him 1 false start, (Spanish Grin, unpublished) to learn how not to write the genre. Hearing about a con called “the blow” he used it as the heart of a new novel (For Love of Imabelle) introducing Jones and Johnson, his so suave, postâ€"Chandler, hardâ€"boiled detectives, always involved, but never attached. In the first novel they are on the edges of the story. By the second they are the core. For Love of Imabelle won the 1958 Grand Prix for best detective novel (filmed as A Rage in Harlem), initiated 7 sequels, brought Himes international acclaim, and all the money he needed, and are today his legacy, a unique one in all of detective fiction. A scarce group of hard-boiled mystery tales from a master of the genre. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      [@1957] - Fair copy AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT of a complete poem of 29 lines titled "A Nearly Next to Naught Song," completely in Frost's hand and SIGNED by him at the conclusion with the dedication "For Richard Hocking/once the author's pupil for/a lesson or two at Shady Hill/or rather on the porch on/Irving Street" on a 6-1/8" x 7-3/4" piece of paper. In the upper right corner in pencil Hocking has written "1957." The text is the poem published as "A Never Naught Song" in the 1962 volume IN THE CLEARING. In this version Frost has eliminated two lines--"Out of coming-in/Into having been!"--and made various other changes in words and punctuation. The Houghton Library at Harvard has a Frost notebook, undated, containing this poem titled as "A Next to Nearly Naught Song." It is one of two poems by Frost along with "All Revelations" (1938) concerned with descriptions of the quantum nature of atoms. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Two autograph letters signed to papermaker Thomas Balston, with related correspondence

      [London], 1957. Both 5½" x 7½": The first: "Dear Balston: As you perceive my pen runs smoothly and pleasantly on these excellent sheets of Mould made 1948 vintage. I am grateful to you - even though by giving me the paper you take away my excuse for being in arrears with my correspondence. Yours, Stanley Morison." A pencil note by Thomas Balston in the corner reads: "Sent him [i.e. Morison] Hugh's letter & specimens about Retree." Four typed letters from Hugh [Balston?] are included in this offering, each written to "Cousin Tom" [Balston] regarding Stanley Morison's detailed needs regarding paper: The first letter states: "I am sending you a roll containing about one dozen sheets of our paper in various substances from Large 28 down to Large 11. Normally these people seem to like the very thin paper, but perhaps he may prefer something heavier." In a second letter he writes: "I am glad Mr. Morison is pleased with our specimens...These were all Large Post size and we do not make all these weights in Foolscap...If he does not mind cut edges we can let him have the equivalent of Large 17 in Blue Wove and Cream Wove." Cousin Tom replies (a carbon letter only): "Stanley Morison would like to have 2000 Foolscap sheets, preferably of the Wove II but, if that is not available, of the Wove 17...He likes the colour of the specimen sheets, but would not object to the paper having some tint in it." Hugh writes back to Cousin Tom: "We can supply Mr.Morison with 2,000 sheets of Large Cream Wove 11 and we could cut this to Foolscap size although he would have to pay for the full sheet...There would of course be some waste involved and in view of this perhaps you would prefer to take Retree quality." In the last letter, Hugh notes: "I would rather have Mr. Morison's approval of a sample as I did not mention in my last letter that when this paper is cut quarto the watermark will only appear in two sheets...Finally, you have not given me any instruictiions about the deckle edge." To all this, Morison replies in his second letter:"Without hesitation I accept Cousin Hugh's Retree...Writing on it will make me feel like a Prince of the Holy Roman Empire. I shall be content with it untrimmed." Previous folds; near fine.

        Original Supplemental Agreement to Winston Churchill's publication contract for A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, signed by Churchill on 18 January 1957 and witnessed and countersigned by Churchill's trusted solicitor, Anthony Moir

      London: Cassell and Company Ltd., 1957. This is an original typed, signed, and witnessed “Supplemental Agreement” to Winston S. Churchill's contract for publication of A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, Churchill's last major published work. The document is printed on a single sheet of heavy stock measuring 17 x 11 inches, folded to make four 8.5 x 11 inch panels, the first three bordered with double red printed rules. Churchill and his solicitor, Anthony F. Moir, both signed the recto of the first panel. Printed text in four lines reads: “SIGNED SEALED AND DELIVERED by the | above-named The Right Hon. Sir | Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill | in the presence of:” Directly to the right, Churchill signed in black “Winston L. S. Churchill”. A .75 inch transparent circular red wax seal overlays the final two letters of his signature. Directly below the printed text is the blue ink signature of “Anthony F. Moir” and three further lines in his hand thus: “10 Pall Mall. | London SW1. | Solicitor”. The third page (recto of the second, folded panel) is blank apart from the printed red border rules. The fourth page (verso of the second panel) serves as the document's title and cover page. It is printed on the right side of a centered, vertical fold in six lines, each underscored in red and hand-dated in blue ink “18th January” beside the typed “1956” which is hand-corrected to read “1957”. Churchill's printed name and honorifics are above “Cassell & Co. Ltd.” in turn above “Supplemental Agreement”. The printed text of the supplemental agreement fills the first panel and contains three provisions. Provision “(a)” references “Clause 10” of the Principal Agreement and a preceding Supplemental Agreement of 17 January 1956. Provision “(b)” specifies that “the Publishers shall dispatch proofs of the Third and Fourth Volumes of “A History of the English-Speaking Peoples… as soon after the thirty first day of January… as the printers can provide them”. The final provision “(c)” merely clarifies that the balance of the Principal Agreement remains “in full force and effect”. At the upper left corner of the typed Supplemental Agreement is an embossed “Ten Shillings” revenue stamp. Cryptic pencil notation “1768” appears at the upper right margin. Fittingly, it appears that Churchill signed this document while at La Pausa, the French Riviera villa owned by Churchill's longtime literary agent and friend Emery Reves, acquired by Reves in 1953 with proceeds earned from foreign language rights of Churchill's The Second World War. The terms of this Supplemental Agreement appear to have been met and the proofs swiftly delivered by the publisher; from La Pausa, Churchill wrote to his wife, Clementine, on 3 February 1957: "I have been so hunted with winding up these proofs of the book..." Churchill consulted the solicitor Anthony Forbes Moir (1903-1967) of Fladgate & Co. in 1945 regarding legal and contractual preparations for publication of his war memoirs. Churchill thereafter relied upon and trusted Moir's counsel for the final two decades of his life. Moir helped make Churchill's post-war literary output - particularly the six-volume The Second World War and the four-volume A History of the English-Speaking Peoples - not just a bestselling literary capstone to Churchill's long writing career, but an incredibly lucrative foundation for his family. Moir further helped assuage Churchill's worries about his family's financial future when, in 1949, Moir (with Leslie Graham-Dixon) helped arrange that "for the first time, an author had been allowed to set his annual literary income into a Trust Fund without it being counted as income as each payment was made by the publishers." (Gilbert, VIII, p.461) "Moir's work for Churchill was comprehensive." (Gilbert, VII, p.801-2). It was to Moir that Churchill confided in December 1959 that he wanted to be buried not at his beloved Chartwell, but at Bladon, next to his father and mother. (Lord Moran diary, 16 December 1959)
