        The Ginger Man.

      McDowell, Obelensky, New York 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        21 Hand Illustrated 1950s Vernacular Gay Chap Books

      [Circa 1958]. Oblong 24mos. Measuring 5" x 8". Illustrated throughout with original ink and watercolor drawings. Each 8pp. Stiff paper wrappers with index cards used for pages and bound with staples or brads. Overall near fine with some wear at the corners and light reading creases to the front wrap along the spine. An elaborate and vibrant collection of 21 gay cartoon books that appear to have been illustrated by one person. Each features very graphic and explicit tales of boy meets boy - and sometimes another boy (and in a few cases a werewolf, or Elvis Presley, or Dick Tracy and ... well, you get the idea). Each is lovingly composed of seven or eight index cards that have been illustrated on the unlined side and bound into hand decorated stiff wraps, some with applied elements. Though undated, the fashions, furniture, and cultural references suggest the late 1950s with titles such as Miss Elvis Presley, I Was a Teen-Age Werewolf, and Space Girl starring Flash Gordon. A unique collection of handcrafted drawings revealing the unvarnished exploits (or at least the fantasies) of a sexually active gay man of the 1950s with more than a dose of figurative and literal tongue-in-cheek humor and pun filled titles, such as Ima Hoor Presents: Lover, a Sexascope Production. The optimistic portrayal of certain physical attributes of the characters certainly parallel or reflect the similarly endowed characters of Tom of Finland, or might possibly even predate them slightly. Due to the singular and clandestine nature of the books, this collection would be almost impossible to recreate today. Originally held for many years by an art dealer who never encountered anything like it, the collection has been in the possession of only one other private owner since. Housed in a specially made slipcase. .

        It came as a complete surprise. After all, Dulles hasn't been on a goodwill tour of the Middle East for ages

      1958. Sheet size: 190 × 140 mm. Pen and ink and blue pencil crayon on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 15 Jul 1958. A military coup d'état at Baghdad on 14 July 1958 led to the declaration of an Iraqi republic, with support for the military from the Iraqi Communist Party. US Secretary of State John Foster Dulles took an aggressive stance against communism throughout the world. 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.
