        Candy - Olympia Press 1958 First Edition

      Olympia Press 1958, Paris - Paris: Olympia Press, 1958. First edition. 12mo, green perfect-bound wrappers, 189 pp. Near Fine; touch peripheral wear. Please see scans. Bearing the later price overstamp. Scarce first edition - if you're here, you know the story of the bannings, burnings, and later pirate and non-pirate editions. The story of a naive and gorgeous young blonde girl - who quickly finds out in exactly what way we men are all, instantly and always, the same - borrows its plot structure from Voltaire's Candide and uses that strangely juxtaposed vehicle to shine a light on all the vagaries of modern western life which beg to be lampooned. Considered by many, then and now, to be a classic of "black (dark) humor". In 2006, Playboy Magazine included Candy on its list of the "25 Sexiest Novels Ever Written". Handsome and rare specimen of a title that is en route to becoming royalty. Please review scans. L52n [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Affluent Society

      Houghton MIfflin, Boston 1958 - First Edition. Walter Heller's copy, with his stamp on front endpaper, "Please Return to Walter W. Heller." Heller was a leading American economist, a University of Minnesota professor and chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors under Kennedy and Johnson. Galbraith was probably the best known economist in the world during his lifetime. In The Affluent Society, his most famous book, Galbraith coined the phrase "the conventional wisdom," and argued for increased government spending on public projects and social programs, which no doubt influenced Heller to propose the "war on poverty" program to LBJ in 1963. Galbraith and Heller were good friends, both Keynesians and close advisors to JFK and LBJ, but they disagreed sharply over Heller's historic tax cut in 1964, widely credited with fostering the economic boom of the sixties. About fine in dustjacket with yellow background uniformly faded on spine panel, else very good, with shallow chipping and wear at spine ends, price-clipped. Signed by Galbraith on laid in publisher's slip. Under "With the compliments of the author," Galbraith has crossed out "the author" and signed it "Ken Galbraith."

        THE AFFLUENT SOCIETY. Signed.

      Houghton Mifflin, Boston 1958 - Inscribed to Joey Smallwood. 8vo. 368 pp. First Edition, early impression, (14th), of this landmark work, depicting a consumer culture gone wild, rich in goods but poor in the social services that make for community. "One of those rare works that forces a nation to re-examine its values" - The New York Times, April 30, 2006, nicely Inscribed by John Kenneth Galbraith to Premier Joey Smallwood of Newfoundland on the front free endpaper. 'For the honourable J.R. Smallwood, with my warm regards, John Kenneth Galbraith'. 'Then I had a long and close association with the most notable figure in Newfoundland history and one vital in that of Canada as well. That was Joseph Robert Smallwood. Joey Smallwood, one of the most diversely alert and interesting political leaders of this century and a central figure in the anniversary celebrations of these days. Joey Smallwood was several times in touch with me in Cambridge called me here to St. John's on one or two occasions for meetings, was one of the most interesting (and I must say unpredictable) political figures of his time. I now tell of something which until this moment is still unknown. He once pressed me hard and seriously to return to the land of my birth as head of this university. Under the arrangement that would be proposed I would retain a part-time commitment to Harvard. Not without difficulty I persuaded him that this would not be good for this university, would be unacceptable at Harvard and possibly questionable for Galbraith. Had I accepted, there would have been one certain and sad result: I would not today be receiving an honorary degree. Excerpted from the Convocation address by Dr. John Kenneth Galbraith at Memorial University Of Newfoundland - 75th anniversary of the founding of Memorial University College in 1925. (A long association well-documented). A near fine copy in brick coloured cloth, black morocco - style label with gilt titles to the spine, (some hand notations throughout), in a bright, fresh dustwrapper with some minimal use.

        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).

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.

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.
