        Tell me, Admiral, what, if anything, are the First, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Fleet up to just now?

      1958. Sheet size: 192 × 140 mm. Pen and black ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 16 July 1958, and with pencil reproduction instructions recto. On 15 July Eisenhower had authorized Operation Blue Bat for US intervention in the crisis in Lebanon. Forty vessels of the Sixth Fleet, the United States navy's European force, operated in support of around 14,000 troops on the ground. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

        3 eigenh. Briefe mit U.

      Mittenwald, Salzburg und Wien, 21. September 1958 bis 21. März 1961.. Zusammen 5 SS. 4to und gr.-8vo. Alle Schreiben gelocht.. 20. März [19]55, eine Seite gr.-8°. Mit Lochung. Faltspuren. An den Regisseur und Chefdramaturg des Zürcher Schauspielhauses, Kurt Hirschfeld (1902-1964): I. Salzburg, 13. November [o. J.]: "[ ] wieder langt ein Telegramm [ ] von Brecht, daß er mit Ihnen gesprochen hat. Ich hoffe es und bedauere es, daß die Dinge so verfahren werden durch Missverständnisse. Für das Wohl und Wehe unseres Freundes haben Sie vollstes Verständnis. Ich versuche mir schon seit Wochen meine Papiere zu bekommen, die sich aber nirgends auftreiben lassen. Ich muss heute noch mal ins Innenministerium nach Wien fahren, wo sie sicher in einer Schublade liegen. Es ist eine ziemliche Nervenprobe und dem eigentlichen wesentlichen Zweck des Dasein eher abträglich als fördernd. [ ] Ich bat Herr v. Einem mit Ihnen zu sprechen, der Ihnen meine Situation ausführlich berichtete. [ ]" - II. Mittenwald, 21. September 1958: "[ ] daß ich Sie belästige mit Dingen die Sie bestimmt nicht schätzen tut mir leid, jedoch ich habe au meine Anfragen keine Nachricht was mich zwar nicht beunruhigt aber etwas befremdet. [ ] Ich hoffe, daß es Ihnen gut geht, hörte von der 20 Jahrfeier des Schauspielhauses und dessen grossen Erfolg. [ ]" - III. Wien, 21. März 1961: "[ ] die Skizzen sind vorgestern [ ] abgegangen; ich hoffe, daß er etwas damit anfangen kann; jetzt in dem Wirbel nach Hamburg zu fahren halte ich für sehr unpraktisch. Meinet und seinetwegen. Ich will mich eher in Ihrer Nähe niederlassen [ ] wo ich einmal sowieso nach Zürich muss um Lenja Weill zu treffen, die von London dorthin kommt.

        Mani: Travels In The Southern Peloponnese

Full page inscription and drawing by Patrick Leigh Fermor on the front free endpaper, "To Mary Anna with love from Paddy." Leigh Fermor has also drawn the eye mimicking the dust jacket art by close friend and artist John Craxton. He also has written in Greek, translated as "where is Megalexandros p, 187." Also is a letter in Leigh Fermor's hand on his stationary to the recipient on the rear endpaper from 1971.

An excellent near fine copy in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. A unique copy of this classic work.His greatest book, Mani, was about a journey through that little-known and, at the time, archaic region….[He] traveled simply, staying with fishermen and farmers, which enabled him to capture the essence of the region….Almost every page has its own literary tour de force, often with intimidating displays of learning and research mixed with fantasy, imagination and acute descriptions of the scene itself" (Robin Hanbury-Tenison, Geographical).

        Are there any? A chess problem book. (Signed)

      Stroud, Glos: Stroud News and Journal, [1958]. First printing. Hardcover. Good+. Duodecimo in green cloth with gilt spine and front board. pp 149. Signed and inscribed by the author on the ffep: "To A. F. Downey Jun. [?] with / best wishes from / Gerry Anderson / March 24/59." The first published work on Kriegspiel problems, which is still widely cited and recognized today among problemists. In a July 2006 article, the Problemist called it "a strong candidate for the title of 'most original chess problem book ever published’”. The work was apparently held in high esteem by Bobby Fischer as well: a member of the British Chess Problem Society once wrote to Anderson, saying: "I write because I must have another copy of Are There Any? I had solved only up into the thirties when last night I incautiously carried it down to the Marshall Club to show it to Jack Collins. Then, seeing it in JackÂ’s hands, Bobby Fischer pounced upon it in great excitement and before the evening was over the two of them had so made it theirs, were so comically oblivious of the mere owner, that I hadnÂ’t the heart to explain that I had brought it to show, not to bestow." The Australian-born Anderson was a pilot in WWI in the 88 Squadron and later became a diplomat in the QueenÂ’s service, but was reknowned in chess circles as a master composer. Anderson was also reputed to be the last person to have played Alexander Alekshin in tournament play in Lisbon (1946) before the latter's untimely death. Front board has several abrasive scuffs to cloth and there is a miniscule tear to the top of the ffep (not affecting signature), else very good. A very scarce book. OCLC lists only 9 copies in libraries worldwide. Betts, 39-21.

        For Pete's Sake

      Np [Associated-Rediffusion], London 1958 - 16 mimeographed pp., secured with staple to top left. A little edgeworn and dusty, pencilled notes to some pages. Last pages beginning to detach from staple. First edition. CO-WRITER DICK VOSBURGH'S CAMERA COPY, WITH HIS PENCILLED ANNOTATIONS. An interesting example of the 1950s phenomenon of Ad-Mags. With the arrival of commercial television in the UK in 1955, regulations were put in place to keep any advertising content separate from the programmes themselves. An exception was made for so-called 'shopping guides', US-style promotional shows where, instead of being advertised in commercial breaks, products were integrated into the fabric of a show where their benefits, availability and price were discussed by the cast. An extreme form of product placement, they usually ran for fifteen minutes, and gave the audience the feeling they were flipping through a mail-order catalogue. The most popular Ad-Mag show was Jim's Inn, starring Jimmy Hanley as the landlord of a village pub, who would serve up pints while a regular cast discussed a wide variety of household gadgets over a packet of pork scratchings. (Counter-intuitively, this is probably a much more realistic slice-of-pub-life than, say, the one served up in Eastenders or Coronation Street, where the locals never discuss soap operas). The Pilkington Report on British Broadcasting, published in 1962, condemned Ad-Mags for blurring the distinction between television characters and TV personalities when looking to sell goods to their audience, and television companies began dropping the shows even before they were outlawed by Parliament. For Pete's Sake ran for 15 episodes in 1957-8, and starred husband-and-wife team Peter Butterworth and Janet Brown. Each fortnight they would parody a well-known film, cramming puff pieces for a variety of products into the action. This episode, transmitted on 28 January 1958, presented a courtroom drama while singing the glories of, among others, the Fridor Stitchmaster, Christie's Liquid Lanoline, and Player's Cigarettes ('I always say 'please' to Player's'). No recordings of For Pete's Sake have survived. An extremely scarce relic from a long-dead TV format.

        Sur l'expression et le role des alleles "inductible". . . (The PaJaMo experiment)

      1958. The PaJaMo Experiment Pardee, Arthur B. (1921- ), Jacob, Francois (1920- ), and Monod, Jacques (1910-76). Sur l'expression et le rule des alleles "inductible" et "constitutif" dans la synthese de la b-galactosidase chez des zygotes d' "Escherichia coli." Offprint from Comptes rendus des seances de l'Academie des Sciences 246 (28 May 1958). 4to. 4pp. 269 x 215 mm. Original printed wrappers, faded at edges. Very good copy. First Separate Edition. The first report of the famous "PaJaMo" experiment, which provided the insights that led to the negative control mechanism of enzyme induction and to the concept of messenger RNA (an expanded English-language version of the paper was published the following year). "The PaJaMo experiment was unexpectedly powerful. It forced the solution of two problems. At home, it turned upside down the logic of regulation of enzyme synthesis that Monod had been investigating, and led to a general theory of the repressor and of groups of genes controlled together, to be termed the 'operon.' Afield, when accepted, the PaJaMo experiment broke the impasse in Crick and Brenner's comprehension of how information in the sequence of bases in DNA came to be expressed as a sequence of amino acids in protein, and thus led to the theory of the messenger and the solution of the coding problem" (Judson, The Eighth Day of Creation [1996], p. 390; see also pp. 391-402). Brock, The Emergence of Bacterial Genetics, section 10.9 (especially pp. 295-96). Jacob and Monod received shares in the 1965 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for their "seminal discoveries concerning genetic control of enzyme and virus synthesis, which were a landmark in producing molecular biology" (Magill, The Nobel Prize Winners: Physiology or Medicine, p. 921)

        The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, 1958 10th Impression with Dustjacket

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1958. 2nd Edition. Original Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. J.R.R. Tolkien. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. A Near Fine copy of an extremely scarce early Hobbit. The 1958 printing, of the 2nd Edition (1951), or the 10th printing overall (1937). This copy is a stated 10th impression from the dustjacket, published by Houghton Mifflin from sheets imported from Great Britain. Stated 10th impression on front flap, not price clipped, noted as printed in Great Britain. One of probably only 1000 imported from Allen & Unwin, lacking the printing history on title verso, to help them circumvent the import restrictions and US copyright laws. The book features the original dustjacket with the Mountains and Dragon design by the author. The boards show no soiling or marking, no shelfwear to note. The text block is clean, without foxing. No bumped corners, virtually without fault. The dustjacket is not price clipped, and has no markings. It shows only the most minor of rubbing, with a very small amount of loss, to the top of the spine area. The front has a tiny bit of rubbing and minor loss to the tips of the folds. One small closed tear on the lower edge of the back panel. A beautiful, bright, clean copy, one of the copies with the dark light green boards stamped in blue, that are very hard to find. Contains the full color frontispiece "The Hill: Hobbiton-across-the Water", as well as the original line drawings by Tolkien. The maps are in excellent condition, with the red and black ink still showing clear and bright against the endpapers. Both maps have no foxing, no marks, or previous owners names. A highly collectable copy, hard to find in this Near Fine condition. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Near Fine / Near Fine.
