        Doctor Zhivago (Zjivago) (Russian).

      Milano, Feltrinelli, (1957). Orig. light green cardboard-binding with some minor soiling and sunning and a bit of light wear to extremities. Occasional light marginal browning. pp. 517-524 loose, but present and in fine condition, with no loss at all.. The very rare first edition, printed in Russian in Italy, of this modern classic, which tells the tragic story of the medical doctor and poet, Yuri Zhivago, in the years during the Russian Revolution.Though begun several decades earlier, the work was completed in 1956, and was submitted for publication to the journal "Novij Mir" the same year, but due to the controversial contents of the work and the Soviet government's dislike of Pasternak, it was rejected. The following year the manuscript was smuggled out of the Soviet Union by the Italian publisher Feltrinelli, who published the book in Russian in Milan in 1957. Already the following year numerous European translations of the work had been made, and the English and Italian ones appeared as the first. These immediate translations and the publications of them partly caused Pasternak being awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1958. Due to the immense popularity of the work, all the European translations were reprinted numerous times.In 1965 the work was made into the large-scale film-production by David Lean, which was nominated for ten Oscars and won five

        The Town.

      New York; Random House, 1957. First edition, stated first printing. [21x14 cm]. (6, 2 blanks), 371, (1 blank) pp. Publisher's red cloth with grey top edge, pictorial dustjacket. The jacket very slightly chipped at spine ends and a bit creased at corners, not price-clipped. Foot of spine slightly bumped. Contents very fine. Massey 347. Petersen A34a.

From the library of Else Jonsson. That William Faulkner would be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950 had been predicted by the Swedish author, journalist and connoisseur of American literature Thorsten Jonsson (1910-1950), who admired Faulkner's works and who acted as his main introducer in Sweden. Jonsson was Dagens Nyheter's USA correspondent from 1943-46 and made his statement while interviewing Faulkner at Rowan Oak in 1946. Unfortunately, Jonsson didn't live to see his prediction come true. At the dinner party given the night before the Nobel Banquet by Faulkner's Swedish publisher, a toast was proposed for Jonsson, as "the man most responsible for our gathering tonight". Among the dinner guests was Else Jonsson, his widow, who had been invited both as a guest of honour and as a fluent speaker of English with a broad knowledge of American customs. She and Faulkner immediately found each other, and they met several times during his stay in Stockholm. Their encounter developed into a life-long passion and friendship, clearly seen in the many letters Faulkner wrote to her, and they managed to spend some time together in Paris, Holmenkollen (Norway) and Stockholm during the years to come. In his first love letter to her, dated the fifteenth of December 1950, he asks himself how he will be able to return to the USA without seeing her again. He also says that being a Noble Prize bloke is nothing compared to spending an afternoon with her. Faulkner's last letter is dated the 14th of December 1960

        Theory of Superconductivity. (Contained in The Physical Review, Second Series, Volume 108, Number 5, p.1175-1204.).

      Lancaster, PA, 1957. The complete issue in original blue printed wrappers. A fine copy, with no tears, stamps or fading.. First edition of this historic paper. The phenomenon of low-temperature superconductivity was discovered by the Dutch physicist Kamerling Onnes already in 1911. For nearly half a century this peculiar phenomenon remained a mystery. The B(ardeen)C(ooper)S(schrieffer)-theory was first announced in this issue of the Physical Review. The theory turned out to be very successful in explaining in considerable detail the properties of superconductors. The theory also predicted new effects and stimulated an intensive activity in theoretical and experimental research. In 1972 the authors shared the Nobel Prize in Physics "for their jointly developed theory of superconductivity, usually called the BCS-theory". This was Bardeen's second Nobel Prize in Physics (1956 for the co-invention of the transistor) - until today only two scientists have received the prize twice in the same field. The importance of this paper is still today of the greatest magnitude, as it has been one of the most cited articles in the last decade

        On the Road.

      NY Viking 1957 Octavo. (iv) 310 pp. First edition. Author's second book, which stands quite firmly as the quintessential work of beat literature. The subject of Kerouac's rhapsodic novel is well-known, as are the stories surrounding its composition, and the mixed bag of critical response to its publication. What is less often cited is Kerouac's intended audience, which Ann Charters reveals in her bibliography: in a later interview, he admits that the book was written for his second wife "to tell her what I'd been through. It's directed toward a woman ... it's sexy because it's addressed to a woman." Fine and bright in black cloth stamped in white, and with unrestored d/w which shows a few tiny nicks and a couple of small closed tears at extremities.

        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.
