        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.

        The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

      Folio London 1958 - First edition thus, but a very exceptional copy indeed. This unique one-off Fine Binding volume is in superlative condition because the talented and sensitive book binder, Andrew Sims, has taken what was always considered a fine and sturdy edition and given it a fabulous classic binding. It is in full black leather, with gilt titling on the spine, which also sports five raised bands. The text block has been gilded on the top edge. This transforms the original book into a resplendent heirloom standard volume, as befits these twelve masterly tales. It is also illustrated with the first appearance of some highly atmospheric drawings by Paul Hogarth. There is a seven-page introduction by Brian A. Marsh, which is unique to this edition. A wonderful book in the finest possible collectable form. A true keepsake for the Conan Doyle collector. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(Wikipedia) This copy has been inscribed in blue ink and presented: "To Joe Outerbridge- In case of attack put on the lead cover and drop over the side. All the best John O'Hara 18 Nov 58."

"Pat" Outerbridge was a very close friend and drinking companion of O'Hara who gave him many signed copies of his books over the years. The books are from the collection of Pat Outerbridge's surviving son David. Quoting from Pamela Mac Arthur's book "The Genteel John O'Hara" about O'Hara's relationship with Joseph 'Pat' Outerbridge: "O'Hara's companionship with Sister (his sister-in-law Winnie Gardiner who later became his wife) ended his long nights with his best friend, Pat Outerbridge. Those nights began at eleven o’clock in the evening and terminated at three o’clock in the morning. Now, he could resume his late night cycle of writing."

        The Death Ship

      Singapore: (Frederic Prokosch). 1958. First. First edition. Batik self-wrappers with printed gold foil label. 12mo. Fine. One of 44 copies, this copy is hand-numbered by Prokosch as "One of three special copies in Tokyo Paper". Signed by the author, and additionally Inscribed by the author on the front fly with a Christmas greeting. In original envelope hand-addressed by Prokosch. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. OCLC locates a single copy, at Texas. .

        I Wanted To Write A Poem

      Beacon Press, Boston 1958 - First edition of this "autobiography of the works of a poet," signed by William Carlos Williams in his erratic post-stroke hand, additionally inscribed by editor Edith Heal to critic and scholar William York Tindall at Columbia University: "For W.Y. Tindall, from a student who appreciated and has used what he taught for other students." In this collection of interviews, Williams recounts the stories behind the writing and publication of his major works, with occasional wry interjections from his wife Florence, better known as "Floss": "We used to laugh . . . at how often Bill appeared in the last issue of a magazine. As soon as they published him, the magazine would blow up." A near-fine copy of a surprising and interesting book, with excellent literary provenance. Octavo, original tan cloth with white lettering to spine, original unclipped pictorial dust jacket. Light shelfwear to jacket. Neat pencil checks in margins.
