        THE GREEN WALL

      Yale University Press, New Haven 1957 - Poet's very scarce first book, part of the Yale Series of Younger Poets, with an introduction by W. H. Auden. This copy belonged to Wright's wife, Liberty, with her SIGNATURE at the top of the front free endpaper and below that a SIGNED INSCRIPTION by the poet quoting two lines from a poem in the book, "Eleutheria," and adding a bittersweet, revealing commentary: "for Lib,/and the ground's deliberate/riches, the fallen pears, the/bewildered apples blown to/mounds of shade, and mainly/for the poison ivy, which I kept/out of the poem, not because/it didn't scan or rhyme, but/because it was the sweet/and secret root from which/the poem came./Love and grief,/Jim." Liberty Kardules was Wright's high school sweetheart and the mother of his sons Franz and Marshall. Wright left Liberty two years after publication of this book and divorced her in 1962. Franz Wright is now an accomplished poet. He and his father are the only parent/child pair to have won a Pulitzer Prize in the same category. Near Fine in a Good dustwrapper, worn but complete but for small chips at the spine tips and corners and a long closed split between the front panel and inside flap.

        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)

        On Poetry and Poets

      London: Faber and Faber, [1957]. 8vo. [8], 262 pp. Original blue cloth; printed dust jacket. Closed tear at top of front panel, some light chipping at ends of spine panel. FIRST EDITION. A FINE ASSOCIATION COPY, WITH A REVEALING LETTER BY ELIOT. Louis Untermeyer's copy, with newspaper clippings neatly pinned and laid-in at front and with a TLS from Eliot mounted on the pastedown, 16 August 1961. Eliot replies to the author-editor's request for a submission of a 6-10 page typescript, with an advance of $1,000, intended for children. "I am afraid I cannot run to that length for a script intended for children of 6 to 8. Nor do I believe I could or should try to compose a children's story limited to a vocabulary of 250 words laid down in advance. I have only written verse for children, and I have always maintainted the view, judging from the children of my acquaintance, is correct, that children like long and euphonious words, without understanding them. Indeed, for me as a child, and I am sure for any intelligent child who likes reading the new and unknown words are part of the fun. They may even be words that the child would not use until it is grown up. So I am afraid I cannot be one of your distinguished contributors." Untermeyer and his wife Bryna Ivens Untermeyer created a number of books for young people in the series Golden Treasury of Children's Literature. He edited for the Crowell-Collier Press the Modern Masters for Children Series in the 1960s. It is most likely for this that he solicited a submission from Eliot. Eliot's most famous work for children was 'Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats' [1939]. Gallup A69.

        Recollections of the Civil War 1861-1865

      Harley Bronson Cooper, [Lynbrook, New York 1957 - Unpublished. Paper print photograph portrait inserted. Typescript, 171 pp., rectos only. 1 vols. 4to. Richly detailed narrative account of the Civil War experiences of Irving Bronson [born ca. 1843], 107th New York Volunteers, Company C, from his enlistment at Elmira 29 July 1862 through his mustering out in June 1865. These reminiscences were addressed as letters to his nephew, circa 1906 (from internal evidence). Bronson was promoted to first lieutenant in April 1863 after Chancellorsville, and was in effective command of his company for more than a year although his rank of captain was not recognized. He was at Spanglers Spring during Gettysburg and listened to the Union response to Pickett's charge ("a long continuous discharge of musketry") but did not take part. He saw action during the campaign for Atlanta, from Resaca (15 May 1864) through the taking of the city (22 July); the siege of Savannah; the northward march chasing Joe Wheeler through the Carolinas, including the capture through bluffing of Chesterfield Court House, and the battle for Averysboro; at Goldsboro, N.C., they learned of the Fall of Richmond, and the regiment was at Smithfield when news of the surrender reached them. Barrels of applejack were broached in celebration, cut short when they learned of Lincoln's assassination. Bronson described parades in Washington and seeing Grant receive Sherman (who refused to shake hands with Stanton). The company returned to Elmira in early June 1865.The narrative includes much detail on foraging, night riding after bushwhackers, personalities in the company, burning out the house of a Rebel congressman, looting, and Bronson signing ("the two-handed alphabet") to the children of an asylum for the deaf they entered after the end of hostilities.This typescript includes a transcript of a letter from historian Bruce Catton at American Heritage noting that he read the memoir with interest; a copy of the typescript is recorded in the Bruce Catton Papers at the Citadel.UNPUBLISHED. Black buckram, some pencil annotations in margins. Fine Paper print photograph portrait inserted. Typescript, 171 pp., rectos only. 1 vols. 4to

        CAT IN THE HAT

      - SEUSS,DR. THE CAT IN THE HAT. NY:Random Hse. (1957). 8vo, flat paper over boards (not glazed paper), 61p., Fine in dw with price intact (dw has small paper restoration on spine, some soil, closed tear and fraying). 1st edition of Seuss's first reader (correct binding paper and price). The original price of this book is the cause of considerable confusion. This first reader was originally published at $2.00. When the publishers decided to make a series of beginning readers, they priced all of them at $1.95 and lowered the price of this title to conform, thus the price of this book went down instead of up as time went by. Illustrated in bright color throughout. In addition to becoming a household name, the Cat In The Hat is extremely important in the history of education and children's literature. At the same time that it was amusing, it was bringing the basic concepts of reading to tens of thousands of little children who were learning without being "taught". It was a marked departure from the boring Dick and Jane type reader. The challenge of writing an entire book using only 220 different words and making the book enjoyable was enormous. Teachers began to use this book in their classrooms and it was not long before the Cat In The Hat became an American icon. First editions of this title are extremely scarce.

        Naval Operations Off Dakar July-September, 1940 (Battle Summaries Nos. 3 and 20) - Naval Staff History Second World War: B.R. 1736 (1) - RESTRICTED

      Historical Section, Admiralty, England 1957 - 95 pages. Index. Thirteen fold-out plans. "The two Battle Summaries superseded by this book, and originally issued in 1942 and 1944 as two separate books, have been re-arranged and largely rewritten to include information from French and other sources not originally available. They have also been amended in matters of detail, many of which have proved in error. It must be remembered that these events took place in the very early days of radar. None of the ships mentioned were as yet fitted with radar sets; nor, of course, was their fighter direction." - from Foreword. Chapters include: Dakar and the Fall of France; The Attack on the Richelieu; Operation "Menace" Planning and Preparation; The French Cruisers; Dakar Authorities Reject General De Gaulle; The Attack on Dakar. Gilt lettering upon navy blue front board and backstrip. Modest wear. Relatively few library markings. Binding tight. A quality copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Ephesian Story. Translated and Introduced by Paul Turner.

      1957 - Golden Cockerel Press. 1957. 8vo., original full green morocco, boards with gilt line blocks, spine lettered in gilt. Illustrated with collotype reproductions of 6 brush drawings by Eric Fraser. Spine slightly darkened, otherwise a very good copy. Preserved in original cloth slipcase. Limited edition of 300 numbered copies, this one of 75 specially bound and with an extra suite of the pictures, including one not printed in the book. "To illustrate this sister-volume to Apollonius of Tyre, published the previous year, I turned to Eric Fraser, who of course was not an engraver and had never worked with me before. He made wash drawings on linoleum which we printed over a terracotta tint which we repeated in the canvas of the ordinary bindings. The separate set of drawings accompanying the specials were printed without the terracotta background. These two volumes pleased me much". (Cock- a-hoop 207) From the library of Thomas Yoseloff, the last owner of the Golden Cockerel Press, by family descent, but with no ownership markings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
