        THE SUNDIAL

      New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy,. [1958]. Octavo,. cloth-backed boards.. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with touch of wear at tail of spine. panel. A sharp copy. Books signed or inscribed by Jackson are. uncommon. (#100273). First edition. Presentation copy with signed inscription by Jackson on front free endpaper: "For Isabel Sherword -- / Gratefully, / Shirley Jackson." THE SUNDIAL, "one of the most bizarre works in Jackson's oeuvre, seems to have been a prelude to WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE: the Halloran family becomes convinced that the rest of the world is going to end, and the narrative tone suggests that this belief might in fact be correct; the novel is occupied with the family's preparations to continue life after the rest of humanity has ceased to exist. Both these novels, as well as a number of short stories -- especially the celebrated 'One Ordinary Day, with Peanuts' (1955) -- display the misanthropy that is a central element of Jackson's work, and one which she conveys with consummate skill ... All Jackson's work -- with the exception, perhaps of THE BIRD'S NEST, a clumsy novel about multiple personality -- is subtle, powerful and flawlessly written; it reveals Jackson's keen insight into human personality and human society and her cynical, even jaundiced view of the world and its occupants. She has left a legacy of complex, richly textured horror writing that requires little or no bloodletting for its haunting effectiveness." - S. T. Joshi, Pringle (ed), St. James Guide to Horror, Ghost & Gothic Writers, p. 292. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 4- 156. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 4-120. Winter list, p. 269.

        Eigenh. Korrekturen der Druckfahnen zu: Ferdinand Ebner. Gesammelte Werke. Im Auftrage der Ferdinand-Ebner-Gesellschaft herausgegeben von Michael Pfliegler und Ludwig Haensel. Bd. II: Die Wirklichkeit Christi. Brenneraufsätze. Für den Druck vorbereitet von Franz Seyr.

      Wien, Thomas Morus Presse im Verlag Herder Wien, 1958. - 353, (3) SS. Gefalzte, beschnittene und einzeln klammergeheftete Einzellagen in Pappumschlag. 8vo. Die Korrekturen in blauem Kugelschreiber sowie Bleistift. Korrekturexemplar des Herausgebers Ludwig Hänsel zum zweiten, für 1958 geplanten aber nie erschienenen Band der von der Herder'schen "Morus-Presse" veranstalteten Ebner-Werkausgabe, von der nur 1952 der erste Band erschien ("Das Wort und die geistigen Realitäten"; EA Innsbruck 1921; Neuauflage 1957). Hänsel war 1919 mit Ludwig Wittgenstein zusammen auf Monte Cassino in Kriegsgefangenschaft gewesen und blieb auch später immer in enger Freundschaft mit ihm verbunden. Seine Beschäftigung mit der Philosophie führte ihn zu Ferdinand Ebner (1882-1931), der seinerseits als einer der bedeutendsten österreichischen Denker des 20. Jahrhunderts und als Antipode Wittgensteins gilt. Wie dieser vertritt Ebner in seinem Hauptwerk "Das Wort und die geistigen Realitäten" den für die Philosophie am Beginn des Jahrhunderts charakteristischen "linguistic turn", verbindet diesen aber mit der Existenzphilosophie Kierkegaards zu einem neuen, christlich-theologischen Ansatz, der traditionelle philosophische Probleme durch "dialogisches Denken" zu lösen versucht. - Die Korrekturen Hänsels betreffen vornehmlich Umbruch, Zeichensetzung und Layout, enthalten aber auch noch zahlreiche zusätzliche Anmerkungen des Herausgebers und editorische Randbemerkungen; insbesondere die Endnoten hat er noch ausführlich ergänzt. Hänsel starb 1959, ohne die auf fünf Bände projektierte Werkausgabe vollenden zu können; erst 1963-65 sollte Franz Seyr, der schon die Morus-Ausgabe redigiert hatte, die dreibändigen "Schriften" bei Kösel herausbringen.

        Of course, I don't suppose the bus strike affects you, but I'm so sorry about the Smithfield stoppage.

      1958 1958 - Sheet size: 190 × 140 mm. Stamped on both recto and verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 13 May 1958. Pen and ink on wove paper. A lady sympathises with a Beefeater. May 1958 saw strikes by both 48,000 London omnibus workers and workers at Smithfield Market. 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.

        The Magic Barrel

      New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, 1958. First edition of the author's first collection of short stories that went on to win the National Book Award. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author, "All good wishes to Fred and Louise Sincerely Bern Corvallis 1959." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket that shows light wear to the spine.The Magic Barrel, has been recognized as a classic from the time it was published in 1959. The stories are set in New York and in Italy (where Malamud's alter ego, the struggleing New York Jewish Painter Arthur Fidelman, roams amid the ruins of old Europe in search of his artistic patrimony); they tell of egg candlers and shoemakers, matchmakers, and rabbis, in a voice that blends vigorous urban realism, Yiddish idiom, and a dash of artistic magic. "In the short story, Malamud achieved an almost psalmlike compression. He has been called the Jewish Hawthorne, but he might just as well be thought a Jewish Chopin, a prose composer of preludes and noctures" (Mark Shechner, Partisan Review).
