        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).

        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 Ginger Man

      New York: McDowell, Obelensky, 1958. First American edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the author on the half title page, "J.P. Donleavy Washington D.C. March 1994." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. A bright copy.The New York Times said, "There are a few novelists who are writing out of a sense of what the contemporary world is all about. The best of them is J. P. Donleavy," and the Scientific American called it "one of the books which reveals their quality from the first line. On every page there is that immediacy all good writing has." The Modern Library named The Ginger Man one of the 100 Best Novels of the Twentieth Century in 1998, and it has sold 45 million copies world-wide. Consequently, it has never been out of print, and it has been made into several theater and film adaptations.

        NIGHT TO REMEMBER, A (ATLANTIQUE, LATITUDE 41°) (1958)

      Rank Organisation 1958 - Vintage original 30 ½ x 46" (78 x 117 cm.) poster, France. Kenneth More, Ronald Allen, Robert Ayres, Honor Blackman, Anthony Bushell, dir: Roy Ward Baker; Rank Organisation. There have been several fine depictions on film of the epic tragedy of RMS Titanic, this one based on Walter Lord's definitive book. Even with the most recent epic film telling, critics still consider this "the definitive cinematic telling of the story," (Heyer 2012, p.104). Because many of the survivors were living when the book and film were made, exact accuracy could be achieved and the film was made in order of sequence. In dramatic graphics, artist G. Trambouze has depicted the horror and turmoil of RMS Titanic's famous sinking. Of the different posters designed for this film, this is a particularly good one, because it has a clear image of the ship. On linen, NEAR FINE.
