        Doctor Zhivago [Signed]

      London: Collins Harvill, 1958. First UK edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/near fine. A Near Fine copy of the first UK Edition, first printing (lower right corner to front board bumped, some very light surface marking to the boards seen when held at an angle to the light, small Johannesburg bookshop label to lower front pastedown), in a Near Fine dust jacket (tiny surface scrape to lower portion of the front panel, some pushing and tiny rubs to the spine ends, two tiny tears to the rear panel's bottom edge, small rub and tiny tear where rear panel joins the spine tail, short tear to upper right of rear panel near to the spine and a crease line moving leftward with a tiny closed tear at the crease line terminus), SIGNED BY BORIS PASTERNAK on a short note tipped to the front free endpaper and reading as follows: "With my sincerest greetings and / best wishes of happiness / and health for _ / William Harris / I sign this leaflet / August 10, 1959 / B Pasternak / Peredelkino near Moscow"-- such date being one year after the August 1958 first publication of the novel in English translation and approximately eight months prior to Pasternak's death on May 30, 1960. Peredelkino is a dacha complex southwest of Moscow noted for its literary residents and is the place where Boris Pasternak both had his home and is buried. Given the date and placement of the note, it appears that Harris was visiting Pasternak at his home. [It was in Peredelkino that Issak Babel was arrested as part of Stalin's Great Purge and from which he was taken to be executed. It is said by some that, during the Great Purge, Stalin personally crossed Pasternak's name off an execution list.] "Doctor Zhivago", the work for which Pasternak is best-known in the West was banned from being published in Russia as anti-Soviet and was smuggled to Milan for publication there in 1957. Boris Pasternak won the 1958 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his important achievement both in contemporary lyrical poetry and in the field of the great Russian epic tradition" an award which greatly angered the Soviet authorities. [Indeed, Pasternak expected Doctor Zhivago's publication to put him at great risk and, when handing over the manuscript for publication, stated: "You are hereby invited to watch me face the firing squad."] Pasternak initially determined to accept the Prize, but was told by the Soviet government that if he traveled to Stockholm to accept the award he would be refused re-entry to the Soviet Union. In consequence, Pasternak renounced the Prize. The Nobel Committee, however, stood by its decision and elected merely not to hold the presentation ceremony. Doctor Zhivago provided the basis for the enduringly-popular 1965 film of the same name starring Omar Sharif and Julie Christie. Items signed by Boris Pasternak are exceptionally difficult to find on the market. A Near Fine copy of Boris Pasternak's important and best-known work, SIGNED BY BORIS PASTERNAK on a tipped-in note written in the anniversary month of the novel's first publication in English. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

        Mark you, things would be very different if we'd had him in Downing Street and at the White House, the Service Ministries, Lambeth Palace, the B.B.C. and London Transport

      1958. Sheet size: 192 × 140 mm. Pen and black ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 25 October 1958 and with pencil reproduction instructions recto. Two gentlemen observe Enoch Powell pass by, and comment upon his somewhat messianic contrarianism. Powell had recently returned to the back-benches after a period as financial secretary to the Treasury. 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 Memoirs of Field-Marshal the Viscount Montgomery of Alamein. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR

      Collins 1958 - 8vo., First Edition, with a fine portrait frontispiece and 65 plates and maps (a number full-page) on 39, endpapers and title mildly spotted; original red cloth, gilt back, red top, backstrip lightly faded at head and tail (but all gilt entirely legible) a very good, crisp copy in unclipped dustwrapper, the latter chafed at extremities and lightly browned on (predominantly white) lower panel. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. With an extensive newspaper obituary and another relevant cutting loosely inserted. One of the key military memoirs of the twentieth century, this is as much an autobiography as a soldier's account of war. Written entirely by 'Monty' himself (in pencil, as so many of his official communications were composed), this characteristically straightforward (and often politically outspoken) account covers boyhood, early service with the Warwickshires, WWII and beyond (notably, about a third of the work covers his post-war career as CIGS and after). For technical military detail we look to the author's other works; here we find the simple account of a 'soldier who kept the faith'. A great read from one of the unforgettable leaders of his times.

Pur nella presenza di diverse componenti, nella redazioine e tra i collaboratori, la rivista nei primi anni si caratterizzava per la posizione di una linea poetica che tenesse conto della tradizione ermetica e dei nuovi esiti che aveva assunto nel primo dopoguerra. Sui numeri 3, 6-7, 8-9, 15-16 vennero dibattuti i contrasti esistenti. Alla direzione si sono succeduti GEROLA , ZAGARRIO, ed infine TOTI e MARESCALCHI.

        Dr. No (a James Bond novel)

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1958, 1958. First Edition. SIGNED BY ACTRESS LOIS MAXWELL. 8vo., pp256. Elegantly hand-bound in full black black oasis morocco, spine gilt-lettered in six compartments with raised bands, gilt rule to covers, scarlet red endpapers, top edge gilt. Near fine. This particular copy features the signature of Lois Maxwell, who played series character Miss Moneypenny in the first fourteen James Bond films, from 1962-1985; her autograph appears opposite the title-page. Filmed by Broccolli/Saltzman in 1962, and with a John Barry soundtrack, this was the one that started it all and introduced the world to Sean Connery... Many of the now familiar elements appeared in this first entry of the series: M, Moneypenny, Felix Leiter, Q/Major Boothroyd, SPECTRE, the Walther PPK, a Casino and a Vodka Martini! The plot was simple and the movie was low-key and down to earth; there were none of the later overblown gadgets to save the day, only Bond's cunning and intuition, which made it a more realistic film and more like Fleming's novel; a first-rate thriller.

        It may look all right for consultations at the F.O. but you'll have to accentuate the bust a bit to get by in Paris

      1958. Sheet size: 191 × 139 mm. Pen and ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 30 Jul 1958. Ferment in the Arab world in 1958 led to an influx of Arab diplomats in London and Paris. 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.
