        Bear Called Paddington

      1958 - BOND, Michael. A Bear Called Paddington. London: Collins, 1958. Octavo, original rose cloth, original dust jacket. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $8200.Scarce first edition of readers' introduction to "a very rare sort of bear" from the heart of darkest Peru, inscribed by the author on title page, "To David, with all good wishes, Michael Bond, 7th December 2010.""Ideal fare for young children" (Eyre, 70). "Paddington's appeal came not only from the hilarious situations and mishaps in which he found himself". but also from Peggy Fortnum's pen-and-ink sketches, which capture Paddington's bewitching charm and combination 'little boy/small bear' character". Bond's books recognize the everyday worries of small, accident-prone children and treat their fears with compassion, wit and laughter" (Silvey, 70-71). Connolly, 60.

        Autograph Letter Signed.

      - 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.

        Mémoires d'une jeune fille rangée - La Force de l'age - La Force des choses - Tout compte fait

      1958Paris, Gallimard, 1958, 1960, 1963, 1972. 4 volumes brochés, 3 vol. de 143 x 208 mm et 1 vol de 149 x 218 mm, 359, 622, 687 et 511 pp. EDITIONS ORIGINALES et collection complète de l'ensemble des volumes qui composent les mémoires de Simone de Beauvoir. Tous les exemplaires sont NUMEROTES SUR VELIN PUR FIL NAVARRE, tirage limité respectivement à 150, 115, 125 et 125 exemplaires (second papier après les tirage sur Hollande). Récit de la jeunesse de l'auteur jusqu'à sa rencontre avec Jean-Paul Sartre, "Mémoires d'une jeune fille rangée" ne devait pas connaitre de suite. "Inutile de raconter l'histoire de ma vocation, si je n'essaie pas de dire comment elle s'est incarnée" (Avant propos de La Force de l'âge). "La Force de l'âge" et "La Force des choses" complèteront donc ces mémoires. En 1972, onze ans après la sortie du dernier volet, parait Tout compte fait, ultime volet autobiographique : "Quand a paru mon essai, La Vieillesse, quelques critiques, quelques lecteurs, m'ont reproché de n'avoir pas parlé davantage de ma vieillesse. Cette curiosité m'a semblé souvent relever d'une sorte de cannibalisme plutôt que d'un véritable intérêt. Elle m'encourage néanmoins à compléter mon autobiographie." Collection complète peu courante.

        Guide to Rockets, Missiles, and Satellites.

      New York, Toronto, London: Whittlesley Hopuse, McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc.,, 1958. Octavo. Original yellow cloth. With the dust jacket. Diagrams and photographic illustrations in the text throughout. An excellent copy in the jacket, which is somewhat rubbed and creased around the edges with small chips to ends and corners. First edition, first printing, the author's own copy with his ownership inscription to the front free endpaper. Scarce. This layman's guide to rocket science, rocket warfare and the incipient space age comes from the library of the author, Dr Homer E. Newell Jr. (1915-1983). Newell was a mathematics professor and author who became a powerful US government science administrator, rising eventually to the third in command of NASA. In the early 1960s he controlled or influenced virtually all non-military unmanned space missions for the free world. He played a significant role in the negotiations which led to the creation of NASA, chairing a committee of rocket and satellite experimenters that drafted a consensus plan for a national space establishment which was presented to Eisenhower's science advisor, and advising the Senate preparedness investigating subcommittee... When the legislation establishing NASA was passed in 1958, Newell was given credit by his peers, including Van Allen, who called him "The Spark Plug" for a strong space science element in NASA. Newell joined NASA in 1958 (the year this book was published), and was successively assistant director for space sciences (1958-1960), deputy director of space flight programs (1960-1961), director of space sciences (1961-1963), associate administrator for space science and applications (1963-1967) and finally associate administrator of NASA, the third ranking position, from 1967 until 1974 (and as such overseeing the Moon Landing.) (1967-1974). In 1965, Newell was awarded the President's Award for Distinguished Federal Civilian Service. He was also commemorated in the Goddard Space Flight Center's Homer E. Newell memorial library, and asteroid 2086 Newell.
