      London: Hamish Hamilton, 1958. - FIRST EDITION, ADVANCE BINDING, previously unrecorded. Octavo. pp.[6]; 208. In publisher's GREEN cloth tooled in silver to the spine, top edge tinted blue. Black dust-wrapper, designed by Patricia Davey. A crisp, fine copy of the true first printing of the final Philip Marlowe story, which precedes the US first by some 3 months. The present example is a previously unrecorded variant binding of green cloth with an alternative font and swelled rule blocked on the spine and with a different, smaller pictorial monogram device stamped at the foot. The book is trimmed a little shorter than the trade binding and given a blue topstain. We are in no doubt that this is an advance issue in a certified library binding using the Hamish Hamilton brasses with permission. It would not have been commercially available and is produced in-line with Heinemann's early binding for Graham Greene's 'The Heart of the Matter and Cape's advance bindings for several of Ian Fleming James Bond first editions. The material used is binder's cloth, the book is trimmed with a topstain and original tooling is used. Cape typically produced 300 advance bindings (Gilbert) and it is conceivable that Hamish Hamilton's figure would be similarly low. An important find. Bruccoli [A11.1a]. Gilbert p.622. Steinbrunner and Penzler pp.275-276. See also Quayle, Haining. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Histoire de l'Europe

      1958 - (EUROPE) PIRENNE, Henri. Histoire de l'Europe. Brussels: La Renaissance du Livre, (1958-62). Four volumes. Folio (10 by 13 inches), publisher's original full green pebbled morocco, marbled endpapers, uncut and largely unopened. $1500.Lavishly illustrated limited edition of Pirenne's renowned history of Europe, letter "M" of only 26 lettered copies printed on Vergé d'Arches paper. Illustrated with hundreds of in-text and full-page heliogravures, and 20 mounted photographic plates printed in color.Belgian historian Henri Pirenne's renowned European history extends from the early medieval barbarian invasions of Rome to the 16th century. He composed this remarkable work while a prisoner of the Germans during World War I""having participated in acts of non-violent resistance""a feat made even more remarkable considering that he wrote entirely from memory. Only upon his death in 1935 did his son Jacques discover the manuscript and decide to publish it and continue the work his father began. Henri Pirenne's history constitutes the first volume of this four-volume folio set; Jacques added three more volumes to bring the history to the end of World War II and the beginning of NATO. First published in 1936. Text in French. Gift inscription on half title of Volume I dated 1969.One leaf of text in Volume IV (pp. 491-92) torn, with loss. Fine condition.

        My Wife Marilyn (Original corrected typescript, with accompanying typed letter signed)

      New York: Life Magazine, 1958. Arthur Miller's typescript draft of for his article, "My Wife Marilyn," signed for submission by the author and playwright. This edit for the final published version, which omits well over a third of the content present here, was published in "Life" magazine in its December 22, 1958 issue. Editorial corrections and (substantial) omissions are in holograph pencil, all by the magazine's proofreader/content editor. Together with a typed letter signed ("Arthur Miller") to "Life" magazine editor Ralph Graves, dated October 31, 1958, with original mailing envelope. Written to accompany Richard Avedon's portraiture of the actress in a spread headlined "Marilyn Monroe in a Remarkable Re-creation of Fabled Enchantresses," with a line-up including incarnations of Lillian Russell, Theda Bara, Clara Bow, Marlene Dietrich, and Jean Harlow. Miller's essay describes Monroe's "miraculous sense of sheer play" in channeling the past movie stars and her role as their successor. In this letter, Miller discusses the article and apologizes to Graves for initially writing far too much. In part: "It reads like a precis of the original, I'm afraid, much of the feeling having been removed. But it will do, I guess. If you've got something better to use please do so. I'm sorry, again, that the wires got crossed and I conceived it for a much greater length. In any case, the photos are still miraculous." The typescript shows increasing revisions, with the second half (pp. 6-11) almost entirely struck through. It examines in detail the nuances behind each pose and each portrait, exploring at length Monroe's approach to resurrecting the old Hollywood stars and the cultural milieux from which they emerged. In a partially excised passage, Miller writes: "I am quite conceivably prejudiced, but I think this collection is a wonder of Marilyn's wittiness. As Lillian Russell, Marilyn sits [on] the solid gold bicycle just inexpertly enough to indicate that she is, after all, a lady… Her hands lace around the bike handles so much more femininely than they grasp the fan as Clara Bow. And here again is the difference between imitation and interpretation, between making an affect and rendering a spirit." Though a few lines and one longer passage from the original manuscript were salvaged for the published version, most were cut. These include a comparison of Monroe's face to "a lake under a changing sky" and Miller's conviction that she is "the living proof that Boticelli was only painting the literal truth." Where the published essay is a polished description of the electricity of Avedon's set and Monroe's ability to capture the "spirit of an age" and document "a kind of history of our mass fantasy, as far as seductresses are concerned," this typescript reveals an unedited account of not only an inspired collaboration, but Miller's beguilement over his wife's many talents. Manuscript: 11 typescript leaves, rectos only; graph paper, ruled on three sides, lightly toned at margins, with staple holes to upper corners, final leaf creased; signed in ink "Arthur Miller" to upper margin of first page; revisions throughout in pencil. Typed letter signed: One leaf, recto only; original 9.5 x 12.5 inch mailing envelope, annotated in ink, "For Life Magazine / December 22, 1958," also present.

        I Always Wanted to Be Somebody

      New York: Harper & Brothers. (1958). First. First edition. Octavo. Corners bumped and a bit of wear on the boards, very good in slightly rubbed very good price-clipped dustwrapper with a tiny nick. The tennis star's candid autobiography Inscribed to her doubles partner.Gibson, born in South Carolina and raised in Harlem, learned to play paddle tennis there and eventually tennis. She was the first African-American to play in the U.S. Nationals (the precursor to the U.S. Open) in 1950. In 1956, Gibson became the first African-American to win the French Open, while also winning, with Angela Buxton, the doubles titles at both the French Open and Wimbledon. In 1957, she won the Wimbledon singles and doubles titles, as well as the U.S. Nationals singles and mixed doubles titles; in 1958, she again won the U.S. Nationals singles title and the Wimbledon singles and doubles titles. She retired to turn professional because (according to the autobiography), "my finances were in heartbreaking shape... you can't eat a crown." When professional tennis didn't pay the bills, Gibson became, in 1964, the first African-American woman to join the Ladies Professional Golf tour.This copy is Inscribed by Gibson in the year of publication to her 1956 doubles partner, Angela Buxton: "November 30, 1958. To: Angela, A Great Gal & Sincere Friend. Althea." Buxton, a British Jew, had her own obstacles to overcome in getting onto the tennis court, she retired due to a wrist injury after her 1956 championship wins with Gibson. Their victory at Wimbledon, after coming together as partners when no one else would play with either of them, was heralded in one British newspaper, in very small type, under the headline, "Minorities Win."The friendship between Gibson and Buxton would last a lifetime. In 1995, when Gibson was ill and destitute, she confided to Buxton that she was contemplating suicide. Buxton led a fund-raising campaign on Gibson's behalf that allowed Gibson to live out her remaining eight years in relative comfort.The title of the book comes from Gibson's quote: "I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me." An excellent association copy of a towering figure in the history of African-American sports, Inscribed to one of the people who cared enough, and helped. .

        Eloise at Christmastime

      New York: Random House, 1958. First edition of the third book in the wonderfully illustrated Eloise series. Slim folio, original pictorial red boards. Boldly signed by the illustrator, Hilary Knight on the front free endpaper. Name on the second page, near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. A very nice example. Eloise has always had a rather festive air about her, but when Christmastime rolls around, well, it's "Fa la la la fa la la la lolly ting tingledy here and there," of course. The bunchy-bloused, spindly-legged scamp is speaking in rhyme this time, and in typical Eloise fashion, the verse simply can't be perfectly metered, for what would be the point? She rushes around New York's Plaza Hotel on Christmas Eve, jingling, spreading Christmas cheer, tying tassels on the thermostats, and writing "Merry Christmas" on all the walls.

      - This legendary R & B tenor hit the charts in the mid-50s with the Drifters and such hits as "Money Honey," "Such a Night" and "Honey Love" before going solo. ALS, 1p, 8½" X 11", New Rochelle, NY, 1958 January 2. Addressed to Donald. Very good. Yellowed tape stain at each corner and one (1¼") at each side. On delightfully corny letterhead of "Clyde McPhatter's Tune Shop," this rare letter was written shortly after his split from the Drifters and the height of his fame as a soloist. A gracious letter to an admirer, reading in part: "Hope that you will like the little verse, that I am sending you. Very sorry that I don't have any pictures at this time, hope when you write again I'll have some on hand. So until then be good." Bold full signature. The alcoholic McPhatter died of a heart attack at age 39, making his autograph material quite uncommon. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Rocket Summer. A musical outline

      [New York]: Alert, 1958. Light toning to edges, old tape adhesion on front wrapper. 4to. 49 pp. Mechanically reproduced typescript, clean and unmarked. Original printed wrappers closed with three contemporary brass clasps. Based upon stories taken from Ray Bradbury's 'The Martian Chronicles,' the musical outlined here was never produced. This outline appears to be the earliest attempt to adapt Bradbury's story into a musical. Bradbury himself, along with seasoned screenwriter Sidney Carroll and Oscar-winning film director Leonard Rosenman, outline a proposed adaptation in detail. Attempts to make "Rocket Summer" into a musical thus took place earlier than previously thought. Lerner and Loewe famously were turned down in the 1960s when they asked Bradbury to adapt his story -- and it did not reach the stage until 2008, composed by Daniel Levy and with a libretto by Elizabeth Margid. This copy was that of screenwriter Sidney Carroll. An absolutely unique Bradbury item, with no other copies traced. Due the abandonment of the project, this copy retained by Carroll may well be the only copy extant.

        Il Gattopardo

      Milan: Feltrinelli Editore,, November 1958. Octavo. Original yellow boards, titles to spine and front in black, illustration to front in brown. No jacket as issued. Contemporary ink gift inscription to front free endpaper. Covers a little dust soiled, internally a little toned around the margins, but a smart copy in excellent condition. Neapolitan bookseller's ticket to rear cover. First edition, first printing (one of 2,000 copies printed on 25 October but bearing the November date on the colophon). First printed in English in 1960, and the basis for Visconti's epic film starring Burt Reynolds, Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale, this is the scarce first edition, printed in a relatively small edition a year after the author's death. Lampedusa failed to get his brilliant tragicomic satire of Sicilian aristocratic life during the Risorgimento published in his lifetime, and when it was published it was immediately attacked from both the Right (for his portrayal of aristocratic lassitude and decadence) and the Left (for his ruthless send-up of the Italian unification, and his depiction of the Sicilian proletariat in all their lumpenness: "They are coming to teach us good manners, but they won't succeed, because we think we are gods."). Before too long, however, the quality of the novel was acknowledged, and in 1959 it won Italy's most prestigious literary award, the Strega Prize.
