        The Turn of the Tide. Triumph in the West.

      1957-59. 1957 - Two volumes. Portrait frontispiece to each volume, maps, cartographic endpapers to the second volume. First editions. 8vo., cloth, dust jackets, that to the second volume price-clipped. London, Collins. A presentation copy to Alexander of Tunis, inscribed on the title page of the second volume 'With great affection + admiration and in memory of our close association during the war ?Brookie?'. Armorial bookplate of Alexander of Tunis pasted opposite the half title page. Also signed on the title page 'Arthur Bryant'. Although Bryant is credited as the author, these are in fact the diaries, edited by Bryant, of Field-Marshal Alanbrooke, the wartime Chief of the General Staff, who was therefore the main military advisor to Churchill throughout the war. These two volumes are not in fact complete, the full diaries not being published until recently, but they contain enough to see why their publication caused a stir, Alanbrooke not being shy of expressing disapproval of many of his wartime colleagues, Churchill included, and going perilously close to giving away the secret of Ultra. Although Alanbrooke is often fulsome in his praise of him, Churchill was very upset by many of the references to him. The fact remains that between them Churchill and Alanbrooke devised the main strategy for defeating the Germans, mixing Churchill's bravery and élan and Alanbrooke's determined professionalism. Alanbrooke appears in Anthony Powell's 'The Military Philosophers', where the hero Nicholas Jenkins' attention is ?unequivocally demanded by the hurricane-like imminence of a thickset general, obviously of high rank, wearing enormous horn-rimmed spectacles. He had just burst from a flagged staff-car almost before it had drawn up by the kerb. Now he tore up the steps of the building at the charge, exploding through the inner door into the hall. An extraordinary current of physical energy, almost of electricity, suddenly pervaded the place. I could feel it stabbing through me. This was the CIGS? General MacArthur, of whom Alanbrooke was an admirer, said of him ?he is undoubtedly the greatest soldier that England has produced since Wellington? Boards of the first volume scratched, the second volume damp-stained and spotted. Text block of both volumes cockled. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Stories like 'The Artificial Nigger' and 'Everything that Rises Must Converge', which deal explicitly with race, can seem to moralize against racism while themselves rehearsing racist portrayals of African-Americans. But as Alice Walker has observed, O'Connor's general tendency in her stories is to refuse attempts at rendering African-Americans at all: 'she leaves them free, in the reader's imagination, to inhabit another landscape, another life, than the one she creates for them. This is a kind of grace many writers do not have'." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.

        Espaces - 13 Dessins, Lavis, Aquarelles.

      Au Vent d'Arles, Paris. 1957 - First edition. Elephant folio. Préface par André Verdet. One of 300 numbered copies. 13 high quality lithographic plates, printed by Daniel Jacomet "sur papier à la cuve du Moulin Richard de Bas spécialement filigrané pour cette édition". The preface is printed is on three folded sheets of handmade paper. This and the plates are loosely preserved in a cloth and burlap folder the cover of which is a silkscreen which Braque especially made for this edition. Presentation copy inscribed to the Spanish fashion designer Cristóbal Balenciaga, firstly by the author of the Preface: "Pour Monsieur Balenciaga en homage - A Verdet - 57" and beneath this by the artist himself: "Pour Balenciaga - G Braque - 1957". Very cleverly Braque incorporates an artist's palette into the initial "G" of his name. Balenciaga opened his first boutique in San Sebastián in Spain, in 1918, and then opened branches in Madrid and Barcelona. After the Spanish Civil War forced him to close his shops he opened his couture house in Paris, in 1937, where he remained in business until 1968. Cecil Beaton dubbed him "fashion's Picasso" and it was on Balenciaga's advice that the other great designer of the period, Hubert de Givenchy, produced a series of embroidered coats in honour of Braque and Joan Miró who were among the influences on Balenciaga's own designs. The plates and accompanying Preface are in fine state, on a very good indeed folder with cloth ties, which is a bit grubby at the edges but with the Braque silkscreen in very good state with only slight rubbing to the colours. The lettering of his name did not fully take to the material. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Earl Warren’s Address to the American Bar Association Meeting in London, & Appreciation of Winston Churchill, With a Lincoln Quote For Good Measure

      Guildhall, London, England 1957 - Autograph Manuscript Speech, in Response to Address by Winston Churchill. July 31, 1957. Guildhall, London, England. 10 pp., 5 x 8 in., undated. "the man who has done more to subordinate brute force to the rule of law than any man of our time; -- Americas great friend in war and peace, Sir Winston Churchill. We feel honored, Sir, beyond our power of expression, that you who in the darkest days of history supplied the leadership which made the survival of free institutions on this continent possible, would now treat our profession and recognize it as a force for preserving those institutions." Complete TranscriptYou have completely spoiled all of us for future conventions. We are not accustomed to such rousing receptions. In America, where every business and professional organization, large or small, holds a national convention, not necessarily because it is essential, but because it is the custom to do so, a convention is but a convention. There, we meet; we parade through the business district at the most traffic congested hours in order to have a captive crowd; in order that to attract the press might not overlook us we discuss violently some controversial public question; we pass resolutions in thunderous tones; we recommend ourselves most highly to the public and then adjourn to see the sights by night. The next day we return home, thoroughly exhausted and with barely the strength to make our deductions for income tax purposes. If this penchant of ours for conventions had existed in the time of Abraham Lincoln, I am sure in speaking of them he would have repeated,--and with great fervor,--his classic phrase; "The world will little note nor long remember what we say here--." But I am sure that if he were here in London tonight, he would speaking of yourselves, complete his sentence, "--but it will never forget what they did here."You have transformed what, at best would have been a workshop conference into a great legal, cultural and spiritual experience for all of us. You have literally showered hospitality on us. Every one has done so; -- from your gracious Queen, her First Ministers, and the Lord Chancellors to the little children we meet in your beautiful green belt. The great men of your nation have laid aside their problems of world-wide importance, not only to greet us, but to exchange views with us in brotherly fashion. You have opened your great Houses of God to us; -- Westminster Abbey and St Paul's Cathedral; -- both of which were protected by His Grace during Englands darkest hours and preserved for greater use in these days when Christian brotherhood is so essential in the turbulent world.You have opened your historic shrines to us; Westminster Hall in which was evolved the English and American concept of law; and your Houses of Parliament which have charted the course of Parliamentary government in all parts of the globe and which have contributed more to the stability of the world than any other legislative body in existence.You have taken us into your homes. Even your gracious Queen has opened her palace to us, to complete a cycle of hospitality that has not been excelled any place, at any time.Even the much berated weather man has been most considerate of us. He has permitted the sun to shine upon us throughout all our proceedings. In frankness I should say that your weather man has not always been favorably advertised received favorable comment in our country, but there are now thousands of American lawyers who will never know how or why London every acquired a reputation for less than perfect weather.Tonight through the generosity of the Lord Mayor, who is also well known in our country, we are honored by our brothers of the Law Society in historic Guild Hall where for so many centuries great ceremonials have been held.All of this would have sufficed far beyond either our needs or our deserts. But as though there are no limits to your consideration for. (See website for full description)

        The Diamond Smugglers.

      Jonathan Cape, London 1957 - First edition, early printing of the thrilling true story behind one of the greatest spy operations in history. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Boldly signed by Ian Fleming on the front free endpaper. From the library of Stanley Meyer, with his bookplate. Meyer was a Hollywood producer, who met Fleming in 1956. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket design by Denis Piper. Introduction by John Blaze. Rare and desirable signed by Fleming and with noted provenance. In 1957, as the Cold War raged, Ian Fleming took a break from writing James Bond to craft a work of nonfiction every bit as tense as a Bond adventure. Aided by an ex-MI5 agent and International Diamond Security Organization operative going by the alias "John Blaize," Fleming chronicled the IDSO's infiltration of the "million-carat network"--the world's most notorious diamond smuggling ring. Every year, a shadowy band of racketeers pirated a fortune in diamonds out of Africa, and the majority of the stolen gems wound up in the hands of Communist nations. In response, the IDSO commissioned a private army, led by legendary British spymaster Sir Percy Sillitoe, to penetrate and topple the ring. And when the operation was complete, the Sunday Times gave the story to Fleming, who had impressed Sillitoe with his 1956 Bond adventure Diamonds Are Forever.

        William Blake's Illustrations to the Bible

      (France): Trianon Press, 1957. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Blake, William. No. 219 of 506, Atlas Folio - over 23" to 25" tall, 82 p. In his "Life of William Blake" (1863) Alexander Gilchrist warned his readers that Blake "neither wrote nor drew for the many, hardly for work'y-day men at all, rather for children and angels; himself 'a divine child,' whose playthings were sun, moon, and stars, the heavens and the earth" (N. B. info from The Poetry Foundation). William Blake (1757 - 1827) is arguably the most original and highly-regarded English author - unusual in that he excelled both as an author and an artist. Although thought mad by his contemporaries, he was held in high regard for his expressiveness and for the synthesis of philosophical and mystical senses within his work. Blake's work has been spectacularly reproduced by Arnold Fawkus and his Trianon Press, which has an undeniable claim to being the finest press of its kind in the last century and has long been known for their unrivaled artworks in fine colour printing. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in half black leather, marbled boards with vellum tips, gilt lettering on spine, there are 208 entries in this list of all the tempera and water-colour paintings Blake is known to have made of illustrations of the Bible, all the paintings presently locatable are reproduced in small dimensions, with a few full-page and in full colour; frontispiece was printed in lithography by Mourlot, Paris, and Plate I in collotype and stencil by Jacomet, Paris, Plates II to VII were printed in colour collotype by Emery Walker Ltd., London, the monochrome collotype pages were printed in Paris on Arches pure rag paper by Trianon Press and Hourdebaigt; the collotype layouts were prepared by PeterBusche, the text pages were set by hand in 18 point Centaur and Colchester. Binding by the Wigmore Bindery, and Mansell Ltd. London; this book was designed by Arnold Fawkus, and produced and published for the William Blake Trust by the Trianon Press; pagination: half-title (i), colophon (ii), blank (iii), frontispiece (iv), title page (v), copyright (vi), preliminary pages (vii - viii), introduction (ix - x), catalogue xi - (xiii), blank (xiv), illustrations (1) - 53, colour plates (54 - 68); 22.25" tall, limited edition no 219 of 506 copies. Housed in a custom-made navy cloth clamshell box with two brass snaps and gilt lettering on spine, lined with marbled paper. ***CONDITION: Volume is in fine condition overall, with some slight wear to the corners and one small spot of soiling on the rear pastedown; box is also fine overall, again, slight wear to the corners. ***CITATION: Blake Books #681. ***POSTAGE: Due to size and weight, additional postage will apply; we are happy to ship at cost for both domestic and international customers, please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

"Theron" sailed full speed ahead off coast of Antarctica. The Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition was the first overland crossing of Antarctica, succeeding in the 1950's what Sir Ernest Shackleton had attempted to do in his ill-fated expedition in 1914-1917. British Explorer Vivian Fuchs and New Zealander Edmund Hilary led the expedition. Previous to this expedition, George Lowe had been an important member of the the 1953 British expedition led by John Hunt that conquered Everest. For the Trans-Antarctic expedition, Lowe joined the 12-man party of the expedition leader, the British explorer Vivian Fuchs, which set out from Shackleton Base on one side of the continent, while Hillary led the support party from the Scott Base on the other side dropping supplies and establishing depots. Fuchs relied on Lowe's expertise to spot crevasses that were, Lowe later noted, "wider, deeper and harder to detect" than any he had previously encountered, and which posed a mortal threat to the tractors, dog-teams and snowmobiles they used to get around. In the event Hillary reached the Pole first, on January 3 1958. The teams met when Fuchs arrived on January 19, but while Hillary flew out, Fuchs continued on overland and arrived at Scott Base on March 2 after a journey of 2,158 miles. With other members of the Trans-Antarctic Expedition, Lowe received in 1958 the Polar Medal (with Antarctic clasp). He was also commemorated in Mount Lowe, a 3,000ft peak in the Shackleton Range.

        The Artificial Nigger and Other Tales [A Good Man Is Hard to Find]

      Neville Spearman, London 1957 - First Impression of the author's first collection of short stories, one of only 2000 copies printed. 8vo: 251,[1]pp. Publisher's crimson paper-covered boards with simulated cloth grain, spine lettered in gilt; strikingly illustrated dust jacket printed in brown and red, priced 13s/6d. About Fine (offsetting to end papers), bright and tight without foxing, stains or inscriptions; about Fine jacket, very lightly rubbed to tips of spine panel. Yet another example of the value to be found in the graphically superior designs of most UK editions of American authors's works. Farmer A2.I.b.1. Originally published in New York, in 1955, as A Good Man is Hard to Find. O'Connor's "position with regard to race relations is a difficult and contentious one. Stories like 'The Artificial Nigger' and 'Everything that Rises Must Converge', which deal explicitly with race, can seem to moralize against racism while themselves rehearsing racist portrayals of African-Americans. But as Alice Walker has observed, O'Connor's general tendency in her stories is to refuse attempts at rendering African-Americans at all: 'she leaves them free, in the reader's imagination, to inhabit another landscape, another life, than the one she creates for them. This is a kind of grace many writers do not have'." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Original red boards, spine lettered in gilt; illustrated dust-wrappers, not price-clipped; pp. 255, frontispiece and plates after photographs; apart from light spotting to text and endpapers a very good copy. First edition, very rare, second issue. A travelogue of a year in the Arabian Gulf, describing Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, Buraimi Oasis, Qatar, Kuwait; with hunting and falconry episodes. Dedicated to the honour and glory of His Excellency Sheikh Shakhbut bin Sultan Albufalah, Ruler of Abu Dhabi. 'A pacifist at Oxford in the Second World War, Fenwick Owen had eventually taken a non-combatant posting in the RAF which left him with an unlikely expertise in the building of airstrips. Thus he found himself in Das, a small but oil-rich Gulf island in need of a runway ... The stay in the Gulf also led to one of the more unusual episodes in a highly unusual life. Presented to the Sheikh of Abu Dhabi as an es-Sha'ir [poet], the closest he could get in Arabic to "travel writer" - Fenwick Owen found himself asked to compose an ode on the spot. Never a slave to self doubt, he responded with: "Through Abu Dhabi's golden sands / We walked and talked until the sea / Crept up and disenchanted me". Sheikh Shakhbut nodded sagely and declared Fenwick Owen his court poet. It was a post he was to hold for 30 years, becoming laureate in turn to Shakhbut's son' (Obituary in the Independent. April 7, 2011).
