        AMERICAN MURDER BALLADS AND THEIR STORIES

      New York: Oxford University Press, 1958., 1958. First edition. 8vo. Inscribed by the author, "To Harriet & Vic, With my best wishes, Olive W. Burt." Laid-in is a copy of a poem written by the author about her trip around the world. Decorated paper over boards, frontis., xiii [3], 272 pp., acknowledgments, foreword, illustrated, index. Quite possibly the only book of its kind, here told for the first time is the story of American murder balladry. The folklore and songs of all kinds of people are told in ballad form, such as wronged husbands, victims of unrequited love, reluctant suitors, thieves, oppressed union members, outlaws, and self-appointed administrators of justice. The blood-and-thunder days of the Old West live again in the ballads celebrating bandit heroes, vigilante groups, and the fierce massacres of Indian and white man. Especially interesting are the many Mormon ballads, which lament the persecution of these people and the martyrdom of their leaders. "The songs the author has assembled for this book are by local minstrels and unknown poets; many have never been published before. Some of them describe world-famous crimes. Others tell of obscure murderers, like William Roundy from southern Utah, who shot his neighbor for taking more than his fair share from the common water supply, and V.P. Coolidge from Brighton, Maine, who lay in wait for Edward Matthews to murder him for his load of hay. He failed in this, but obtained a loan from his intended victim and then poisoned him." The author tells how she found each song and gives the details of the crime to which it relates. Carl Carmer says, "With this collection of crime ballads .... Mrs Burt has made a major contribution to Americana. Scholars will welcome it and so will the vast audience of Americans who delight in folk-song because of its originality, its music, and its humor." Very good in dust jacket with light professional restoration to spine ends, corners and extremities. A fascinating book.

        Granite and Rainbow

      London: The Hogarth Press, 1958 First edition, first printing. Personal copy of author's sister Vanessa Bell, with her ownership signature "Vanessa Bell" in blue ink to the front free endpaper, and with the front panel of the dust jacket designed by Bell adhered to the front pastedown and the dust jacket spine adhered to the front free endpaper. Publisher's royal blue cloth, lettered in gilt; white dust jacket with decorations in light blue and black. Very good, with some wear and rubbing to the edges, a hint of toning to the spine, a faint hint of foxing to the page edges, otherwise bright and clean pages. Housed in a custom quarter-leather clamshell box. Granite and Rainbow is the fourth and final posthumously published collection of Virginia Woolf's essays, discovered by B. J. Kirkpatrick (Woolf's bibliographer) and Dr. Mary Lyon (author of Virginia Woolf as Critic). The text is divided into two sections: "The Art of Biography," which includes "Money and Love," "Poe's Helen," and "Waxworks at the Abbey," and "The Royal Academy;" and "The Art of Fiction," which includes "Hours in a Library," "Impassioned Prose," and "The Anatomy of Fiction." The title Granite and Rainbow is a reference to the life of an artist. Specifically, Virginia identified Vanessa's nature as having a complex combination of vulnerability and granitic strength. During her lifetime, Woolf wrote many articles on writing and literature for serial publications, many of which were published in her The Common Reader series (1925 and 1932). After Virginia's death, her husband Leonard Woolf published her remaining essays, but managed to miss a few, which, after being discovered by Kirkpatrick and Lyon, were published together in this volume. Like many of her published works, Granite and Rainbow was edited by her husband, published through her own press, and wrapped in a dust jacket designed by her sister, all of which reinforce the highly personal nature of Woolf's writing and creative process.. Illus. by Bell, Vanessa. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

      New York: Harper and Brothers. (1958). First. First edition. A little age-toning on the boards, near fine in near fine, first issue dustwrapper with two short tears. Inscribed (but not signed) by Updike on the front endpaper to Janet Pott: "For dearest J. in grateful memory of her many kindnesses to two very young Americans in Oxford, 1955."

Genetics sometimes plays tricks." The poem on page 30, "Time's Fool," is about Janet's husband, Frederick Alexander Pott. Updike had been befriended by the Potts while in England and the poem and the book express his thanks. Updike's first book, a volume of poems written in Oxford while on a Knox Fellowship, just before returning to the United States to join the staff of The New Yorker. A wonderful early association copy of the author's first book. .

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1958 First edition, first impression, second state of the sixth novel in the James Bond series. One of 16,020 copies. Publisher's black cloth, with a silhouette of a dancing woman silhouette on the front board in dark brown, spine lettered in metallic silver; in the original pictorial dust jacket designed by Pat Marriott, with the same illustration of a dancing woman's silhouette in black in front of a brown background to the front panel, lettered in white and black.

Overall, a bright and pleasing copy. Gilbert A6a (1.3) In this Bond adventure, 007 heads to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of an MI6 agent in what should be "a time-wasting, shabby little case in the Caribbean." However, an early attack on Bond's life quickly exposes the seriousness of the situation, and Bond discovers a series of island mysteries all relating back to the villainous Dr. Julius No, a Chinese-German reclusive criminal with metal pincers for hands. Although it is the sixth story in the 007 series, Dr. No is the first Bond book to be adapted into a film, perhaps because it contains one of Fleming's most bizarre and twisted villains.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        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.

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

      London: John Murray, 1958. First editon of the author's travelogue about the rocky Mani, later complementing it with Roumeli: Travels in Northern Greece. Octavo, original cloth. 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. The recipient was Mary Anna Marten (with her bookplate to the inside gutter), who was the daughter of the 3rd and last Lord Alington of Crichel and later trustee of The British Museum. 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.

        Mani: Travels In The Southern Peloponnese

      London: John Murray, 1958. First editon of the author's travelogue about the rocky Mani, later complementing it with Roumeli: Travels in Northern Greece. Octavo, original cloth. 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. The recipient was Mary Anna Marten (with her bookplate to the inside gutter), who was the daughter of the 3rd and last Lord Alington of Crichel and later trustee of The British Museum. 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). "Mani and Roumeli: two of the best travel books of the century" (Financial Times).
