        The Dharma Bums

      New York: Viking Press, 1958. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light wear. A very bright copy. There were three books that really shaped Kerouac&#39;s public image, the three that came out within a year of each other in 1957 and 1958: On the Road, The Subterraneans and The Dharma Bums" (Charters, 295). One of the best and most popular of Kerouac&#39;s autobiographical novels, The Dharma Bums is based on experiences the writer had during the mid-1950s while living in California, after he&#39;d become interested in Buddhism&#39;s spiritual mode of understanding. One of the book&#39;s main characters, Japhy Ryder, is thinly disguised on the poet Gary Snyder, who was a close friend and whose interest in Buddhism influenced Kerouac.

        The Memoirs of Field-Marshal the Viscount Montgomery of Alamein. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR

      Collins, 1958 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. Baxter, 268; Enser, p.277.

        The Memoirs of

      London: Collins, 1958 - Octavo, original rose madder cloth in dust jacket. Some foxing, front, back and fore-edge as often, else a very good copy in a slightly foxed and rubbed jacket with a few minor splits. Portrait frontispiece and numerous other plates and maps. First edition. This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper; "Inscribed for Lord Nathan a friend of over fifty years standing. Montgomery of Alamein F.M., September, 1959". Enclosed in an envelope mounted on the front pastedown is the one-page autograph letter signed, on Isington Mill stationery, presenting "the book duly inscribed", and promising to send a photo when he has one that he likes. Nathan met Montgomery when they were at school and served in the cadets together at St. Pauls. An autobiography every bit as spiky and controversial as its author, ruffling feathers in the highest places, his comments on Eisenhower's leadership led to a breach in what was once a close friendship. It was inevitably, however, a runaway success. On hearing that Monty's Memoirs had made more money than his History of the English-Speaking Peoples, Churchill is said to have remarked, "I'm not at all surprised that the Field-Marshal lived up to the finest tradition of Englishmen by selling his life as dearly as possible". Not an uncommon book signed or inscribed, but this is a particularly genuine, and appealing, association. [Attributes: First Edition]

Although Bechet struggled to maintain his torrid recording and touring pace, in late 1958 he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and made his last concert appearance on, Dec 20 1958, at the Salle Wagram in Paris, after which he declined rapidly and died on his sixty second birthday, May 14 1959.

        Owls Do Cry

      Christchurch, New Zealand: Pegasus, 1958. Second. Cloth. Good/Good. Janet Frame&#39;s first novel, Owls Do Cry draws on many details of her own life. Her childhood was shadowed by poverty, sickness, and accidental death, and shaped by the power of the spoken and written word. At twenty-one, she was institutionalized in a mental hospital and later saved from a threatened lobotomy only by her achievement as a writer. Owls Do Cry explores the life of the Withers family in a New Zealand town "halfway between the South Pole and the equator." Poverty and a reputation for strangeness exclude the Withers from the hollow conventions and artifacts of suburban life. They do not possess revolving clotheslines, walkie talkie dolls or uncomfortable chairs, yet the children&#39;s lives are rich in "wonder currency:" rhymes and rituals, play and dreams. Twenty years later, this currency is subsumed for each of them into vivid, haunted inner lives. Owls Do Cry lyrically evokes "the private and lonely night, with a room of its own but no window" within which the characters are caught. The parents are worn down by worry and love; the children grow into baffled, damaged adults. Each has taken hold of "the wrong magic and the wrong fairy tale." The special quality of this novel lies in its poetic, hallucinatory, perceptive voice, imbued with the surreal vision of childhood and madness. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Correspondence between the Ministry of Culture of the USSR/the Association of the National Circuses and the directors of a mobile travelling circus #8 from the Tajik Republic. 27pps + cover note + design calculations, specified rated loads of construction from the late 1950s. Text in handwritten ink, charts, calculations, these papers are in folder, tissue paper, one chart w/calculations measures about 50 cm x 80 cm (there are others) plus 25 sheets in red of designs, equations, construction comments, a few f/o oversized sheets included. Russian text only. Quite rare glimpse of a nomadic circus&#39;s construction and layout for its tour of the provinces during this sluggish period in Soviet history. Here the circus represented a sophisticated avant garde world beyond the scope of the poor audience that viewed them. Ask for photos. With this data you can start your own Stalinist-era circus..
