        William Blake's Illustrations to the Bible

      Trianon Press, (France) 1957 - 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.

        Lee Harvey Oswald's only dress clothes: a gray two-piece suit that he wore at his wedding to Marina in April 1961

      c. 1957. various. "A gray wool two-piece suit (jacket and trousers) with his name ""Lee H. Oswald"" finely embroidered in yellow thread immediately above the right-side inside pocket of the jacket. Typical age wear including several minor moth holes and soiling, trousers faded slightly due to more frequent wear than the jacket over time, else fine condition overall.Oswald purchased this suit while still in the Marine Corps during his time at Naval Air Facility Atsugi near Yokohama, Japan from September 1957 to October 1958. Beneath the left-hand inside jacket pocket, there is an outline where a manufacturer's label appeared which matches the size of a blue wool overcoat he purchased from a Yokohama tailor named Kawashima (who apparently is still in business as of this writing.) Apparently his only dress clothes, Oswald brought this suit along when he defected to the Soviet Union in October 1959, and it appears in at least three photographs dating from that period--including one taken on his wedding day on April 30, 1961. The suit is described briefly in the Warren Commission report: ""Oswald owned one suit, of Russian make and purchase, poor fitting and of heavy fabric which, despite its unsuitability to the comates of Texas and Louisiana and his obvious discomfort, he wore on the few occasions that required dress."" (Earl Warren, et al, Report of the Warren Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy. 1964, p. 329)Obtained directly from the Oswald family, with a signed letter of provenance from Lee's brother Robert Oswald."

      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."

The recipient was Lady Maud Harvey ,wife of Sir Oliver,the British Ambassador to Paris between 1948 and 1954. Nancy was initially scathing about the couple,describing him as 'odious' and ,in a letter to Lady Pamela Berry in 1949,nicknaming her as 'Morgue Harvey'. However,the couple went up in her estimations considerably and she became especially fond of Maude. as evidenced by this warm inscription.

        Il Dottor Zivago; [with:] Doctor Zhivago [in Cyrillic]

      Milan: Feltrinelli Editore,, 1957 & [1959]. 2 volumes, octavo. Original pale green boards, titles to spines and front boards in black. With the dust jackets. Il Dottor Zivago with scarce yellow wraparound band, torn into two pieces and loosely inserted. An excellent, bright set. Hinges of Il Dottor Zivago split but holding (not affecting endpapers but gauze visible at gutter of title page and final page of text); in the jacket with laminate lifting slightly; front hinge of Russian edition split but holding (not affecting front endpaper but gauze visible at gutter of title page); in the bright jacket with some nicks and rubbing to spine ends. First edition of Pasternak's masterpiece and the third edition in Russian (the first published by Feltrinelli). Doctor Zhivago was deemed unfit for publication within the Soviet Union due to certain passages that were perceived as anti-Soviet. It was therefore first published in Italian by Feltrinelli in 1957 after Pasternak signed a contract with him on 30 June 1956, granting the Italian publisher the copyright for translation. The history of the book's publication in Russian is somewhat tangled: the first edition in Russian was printed by the Dutch publisher Mouton without Feltrinelli's permission, as part of a covert CIA publishing and propaganda program. In January 1958 the CIA accepted through British Intelligence microfilm copies of the Russian manuscript which Feltrinelli had received from Pasternak; the book was ready for distribution by early September 1958. Feltrinelli, with Pasternak's support, had discussed the publication of a Russian edition in 1957 in collaboration with Mouton, but had not signed a contract. Unaware of the CIA's involvement, Feltrinelli saw Mouton's publication as outright fraud and considered legal action, though he later settled. A planned US edition in Russian was to be likewise published without acknowledgement of Feltrinelli's copyright. However, after the legal furore surrounding the publication of the Dutch edition, that decision was reversed, and the US edition, published in Michigan, was subsequently published with Feltrinelli's full consent and collaboration. Feltrinelli intended to publish his Russian edition concurrently with the US publication, but due to printing delays his book was not published in Italy until four months after it appeared in the US. The book earned Pasternak the Nobel Prize for literature. The award was offered in mid-October 1958, but before the end of the month, under intense pressure from the Soviet authorities, Pasternak was forced to reject it.

        IL DOTTOR ZIVAGO Traduzione dal russo di Pietro Zveteremich.

      Milano, Feltrinelli, 1957. in-16 gr., cartonato edit., sovracoperta (lieviss. mancanze margin.), pp. 710,(2). Celeberrima "prima edizione", nella prima tiratura del 15 novembre. “Il romanzo, accolto in manoscritto dai dirigenti letterari sovietici con obiezioni di fondo, via via più gravi - (si conclusero in una lettera della redazione della rivista ‘Novyj Mir’ che rifiutava la pubblicazione dell’opera) - pervenne all’editore Feltrinelli che lo presentò al pubblico direttamente in traduzione italiana. L’avvenimento uscì, in breve, dall’ambito del dibattito culturale e si trasformò in una questione prevalentemente politica, con aspetti di esasperazione polemica, estranei al giudizio sul valore artistico dell’opera”. Così “Diz. Universale della Letteratura Contemporanea”,III, p. 985. Esemplare molto ben conservato.

        1957 SIGNED New York Yankees Baseball Program Mickey Mantle Slaughter Berra

      Kansas City, Mo.: Ashcraft Inc., 1957. - 1957 SIGNED New York Yankees Baseball Program Mickey Mantle Slaughter Berra Billy Martin & more / PSA AUTHENTICATED A rare Major League Baseball game program from 1957 – Kansas City Athletics vs. New York Yankees. This incredible program is signed by 14 members of the ’57 Yankees including Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, and Enos Slaughter. According to PSA, “The signatures are consistent considering slant, flow, pen pressure, letter size, and other characteristics that are typical of the other exemplars that we have examined in our hobby and professional career.” In 1957, the Athletics published one program for each of the games against the Yankees, and thus, they were not dated. This specific program is from a game in which Mickey Mantle hit a homerun in the 8th-inning. Mantle hit only four home runs in Kansas City in the summer of 1957. Based on the possible score of the game, this game was more than likely from July 11 or 12, in which the Yankees won both games. The authenticating letter accompanies this item. Item number: #222 Price: $950 ATHLETICS, Kansas City. Kansas City Athletics Official Scorebook Kansas City, Mo.: Ashcraft Inc., 1957.
