        Breakfast at Tiffany's

      New York: Random House,, 1958. Octavo. Original yellow cloth, spine lettered in gilt on black, top edge blue. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black morocco-backed bookform folding case. Spine very slightly rubbed, mild dust soiling to board edges, faint partial toning to endpapers, an excellent copy in a jacket that is spine tanned, has small chips to corners to small closed tears to top edge of front panel, and some very faint marks to rear panel. First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed by Capote on the front free endpaper, "for Martha Robertson, with love, Truman Capote". The recipient was Martha Hunt Robertson (1931-2014), an art teacher from Guntersville, Alabama, who in 1977 married noted journalist-novelist William Bradford Huie (1910?-1986), of Hartselle, Alabama. Huie was a friend of Truman Capote (also raised in Alabama), and his 1954 book The Execution of Private Slovik (an intense account of the only American soldier executed for desertion during the Second World War), as a work of non-fiction written in a highly literary style, is credited with anticipating the "nonfiction novels" of the 1960s and 1970s such as Capote's In Cold Blood (1966). Breakfast at Tiffany's is rare inscribed - we have only ever handled one other.

        Typed Signed Letter (TSL) marked 'personal' of Anthony Eden, to John E. Hunt

      1958. No binding. 5 x 8 inches, was folded now flat, typed signed letter to John E. (Edwin) Hunt of New Zealand. On Donhead House Shaftesbury blind embossed letterhead (Anthony Eden lived at Donhead House for a year following the Suez Crisis of 1956). Dated July 31st, 1958. Marked PERSONAL. Writing with appreciation and comments about the Suez Crisis of 1956,, and noting: "I was quite sure that in time the purpose I had in mind would be understood. My only regret now is that the two years which have elapsed have made the task a very difficult one for the free world". Very Good condition. Robert Anthony Eden, 1st Earl of Avon was an English Conservative politician who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1955 to 1957. He was also Foreign Secretary for three periods between 1935 and 1955, including during World War II. He is best known for his outspoken opposition to appeasement in the 1930s; his diplomatic leadership in the 1940s and 1950s; and the failure of his Middle East policy in 1956 that ended his premiership.Suez in retrospect: Following the defeat of the Arab armies by Israel in the Six Day War of 1967, Eden's own reputation, not least in Israel and the United States, soared, and he was deluged with letters of the "you were right in 1956" variety. In 1986, Eden's official biographer Robert Rhodes James re-evaluated sympathetically Eden's stance over Suez and in 1990, following the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, James asked: "Who can now claim that Eden was wrong?". Such arguments turn mostly on whether, as a matter of policy, the Suez operation was fundamentally flawed or whether, as such "revisionists" thought, the lack of American support conveyed the impression that the West was divided and weak. Anthony Nutting, who resigned as a Foreign Office Minister over Suez, expressed the former view in 1967, the year of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, when he wrote that "we had sown the wind of bitterness and we were to reap the whirlwind of revenge and rebellion". Conversely, D. R. Thorpe, another of Eden's biographers, suggests that had the Suez venture succeeded, "there would almost certainly have been no Middle East war in 1967, and probably no Yom Kippur War in 1973 also".
