      Rinehart and Company, Inc.. Hardcover. B00NS3ADTY 1958 signed and inscribed first edition, Rinehart and Company, Inc. (NY), 6 x 8 1/2 inches tall black cloth hardbound in publisher's unclipped dust jacket (preserved in a clear archival sleeve), 721 pp. Rubbing and and edgewear to covers, with fraying to tips. Cracking to backstrip - a 3 3/4-inch crack along the right lower portion of the spine, then extending 2 3/4 inches diagonally through the middle of the title along the backstrip. A bit of cracking between the half title and title pages at the top, but the binding is quite firm. Very light shadow to two interior pages where a slip of paper may have been laid in. Otherwise, apart from very slight age toning, and a couple of creased page tips, a very good true first edition of this seminal novel, with a great inscription and signature by the author, in a very good first issue dust jacket, all handsomely housed in a custom black, felt-lined clamshell case with title embossed to front and gilt-lettered spine. With a letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA, the leading autograph authentication service. Mailer's half title inscription to Eliot, Maine's Harold P. Merry (1921-2008), reads, 'with apologies - after / all, a first edition / should not have to wait. / Cheers / Norman Mailer / Sept. '94' First impression, with circle-R Rinehart logo colophon on copyright page. Unclipped first issue jacket with $4.00 price and Stanley Rinehart blurb to flaps has only minor edgewear, with a 1-inch piece of tape to the upper edge of the rear cover verso, and a 2 1/2-inch diagonal crease to the lower left edge of the rear cover, but otherwise in very good condition. ~SP12~ Norman Mailer (1923-2007) was an American novelist, journalist, essayist, playwright, film maker, actor and political candidate. Based on his experiences with the 112th Cavalry Regiment during the Philippines Campaign in World War II, this first novel was published in 1948 while Mailer continued his studies at the University of Paris. A New York Times best seller for 62 weeks, it was hailed by many as one of the best American wartime novels and was adapted into a film of the same name in 1958. In 1998, the Modern Library's editorial board named The Naked and the Dead among the best 100 novels of the twentieth century, and it consistently appears on other such critical lists. Along with the likes of Truman Capote, Hunter S. Thompson and Tom Wolfe, Mailer is considered an innovator of creative nonfiction, a genre sometimes called New Journalism, which superimposes the style and devices of literary fiction onto fact-based journalism. For his work, he won two Pulitzer Prizes and the National Book Award. He was also one of the co-founders of The Village Voice, an arts and politics oriented newspaper out of Greenwich Village, one of the oldest and largest of the American alternative weeklies. . Good. 1948. First Edition.

Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in black morocco, titles and decoration to spines, raised bands, single rule to boards, twin rule to turn-ins, burgundy endpapers, gilt edges. Maps to the text, some full-page. A fine copy. First editions. Signed by the author on publisher's blank of volume I. A superb work of narrative history, uncommon signed, here handsomely presented. Originally a novelist, Foote was approached by Random House with a commission for a centennial short history of the Civil War at the suggestion of Walker Percy. Having persuaded them to expand the project to three volumes to be completed over nine years, Foote was immersed in the project for the next 20 years, supporting himself with various research fellowships, grants, and loans from his friend Percy. In the late 80s Foote was one of the historians interviewed by Ken Burns for his award-winning documentary series The Civil War, and when it was first screened in 1990, the intensity and immediacy of Foote's delivery, and his passionate involvement with the material, had such an impact on the public that he became a star overnight. In a single week at the end of September, 1990, each volume of the paperback version sold 1,000 copies each day. By the middle of 1991, Random House had sold 400,000 sets of the trilogy. Foote later told Burns, "Ken, you've made me a millionaire.

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."

        Mirror for Magistrates

      London: Anthony Blond. (1958). First. First edition. Octavo. 172 pp. Very good with some age-toning and scattered light stains to the endpapers, else near fine, in a near fine dustwrapper with some light soiling to the top edge, and light age-toning to the inside panel. Inscribed and Signed by Gibson in a very neat hand on the title page: "For Peter Taylor, with best wishes and many thanks, Richard Gibson, Paris September 1958." Peter Taylor was one of America's best short story writers, and winner of the 1985 PEN/Faulkner Award and the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Richard Gibson was awarded the John Hay Whitney Fellowship in 1951 to pursue writing this novel. He was drafted in the army, served in Europe, and by the late 1950s had become a member of the group of African-American expatriates centered in Paris around Richard Wright and James Baldwin. In a sequence of events in 1957-58 that became known as the "Gibson Affair," the CIA allegedly employed or otherwise utilized Gibson to promote pro-French sympathies, specifically regarding Algeria's fight for independence. This was dramatized by Richard Wright in his unfinished last novel, Island of Hallucination (see Michel Fabre's The Unfinished Quest of Richard Wright). A very nice association between Gibson and Taylor. .
