      Moskva... Moscow Gosudarstvennoe muzykal'noe izdatel'stvo State Music Publishers [PN M. 26985 G.(Cyrillic)] 1958. Quarto. Full tan cloth with titling stamped in red and black, imprint and (to verso) price ("40 r[ubles]") blindstamped. [i] (title), [ii]-[v] (foreword by V. Pankratova in Russian, English, French, and German), [vi] (list of orchestral instruments in Russian and Italian), 7-238 (music, with caption titles in Russian and English), [i] (contents in Russian and English), [i] (colophon in Russian). With an autograph inscription signed in blue ink to title: "Dorogomu Rostislavu Modestovichu na doroguiu pamiat'. D. Shostakovich 28 V 1958. Parizh." (To dear Rostislav Modestovich as a dear memory. D. Shostakovich. May 28, 1958, Paris). Binding very slightly bumped at corners and head and tail of spine.. First Edition. Hulme p. 408. The inscription is to the stage director and musicologist Rostislav Modestovich Gofman (or Hofman, 1915-1975). Born in Petrograd, he was taken to Paris in 1923 where he spent all his later life, assuming an important role in the Russian emigre community and beyond. Levon Atovm'ian (1907-1973), the editor of the present volume, was a close friend of Prokofiev during the latter's final years. "The Eleventh Symphony was composed for the 40th Anniversary of the October Revolution and programmatically represented the 1905 Bloody Sunday Massacre; yet appearing as it did in October 1957, its message concerning the abuse of dictatorial power invited aesopian reading as a comment on the Soviet repression of the Hungarian uprising. Although Shostakovich himself later encouraged this interpretation, the publication of his intent to write such a symphony had actually preceded the Soviet invasion of October 1956, and the programmatic scenario is extremely closely wedded to the events of 1905 - unimpeachable subject matter for a good communist."

This script, dated February 27, 1958, was written by Clavell four years before his first novel, "King Rat," was published. There is no book edition of "The Fly" and scripts are very uncommon.

The front cover of the box depicts a fly's head done with leather onlays. A great clam-shell box! $2500.00.

        A Literary Miscellany by Members of the Staff and Students of The University of Cape Town, South Africa

      Cape Town: University of Cape Town. 1958. Early publications by Coetzee, dating from two years before he received his undergraduate degree. Coetzee contributes three pieces to this assemblage: "The Love Song...," "Procula to Pilate," and "Attic." A 67-page stapled mimeograph production, collected by R.G. [Robert Gay] Howarth, whom Coetzee mentions in his fictionalized autobiography, Youth. Signed by Coetzee on the front cover. Light foxing, small foredge tear to front cover; near fine, and housed in a custom clamshell case, with the spine label titled "Attic/A Literary Miscellany." We have never seen nor heard of another copy of this; the format alone suggests that a very small number would have been done, and doubtless few have survived. Exceedingly scarce early writing by a Nobel Prize-winning author. First Edition. No Binding.
