        The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, 1958 10th Impression in Dustjacket

      London: Allen & Unwin, 1958. 2nd Edition. Original Cloth. J.R.R. Tolkien. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published by Allen & Unwin in 1958. The book is in Very Good Plus/Near Fine condition, with a bit of tanning to the spine of the dustjacket, very light soiling to the white areas, and only the slightest of rubs or wear to the tips and corners of the fold areas. A spot on the edge of the front flap, but very minor, appears to be a printers drop of green ink, a very common fault found on the 9th and 10th dustjackets. No previous owners name or dates, nor any other writing noted. No foxing marks or offsetting noted. The map endpapers are clean and bright, unmarked. The boards are the original green cloth with dark blue stamping of Tolkien's own Mountains and Dragon design, with one slightly bumped corner, and a bit of spine lean. The title verso has the full printing history up to this tenth impression of 1958. The original dustjacket is incorrectly marked the 9th impression, but would appear to be the original as both book and dustjacket are remarkably well preserved. In 1957 (Ninth Impression book) Houghton Mifflin ordered a number of sheet sets to be imported from A&U for the US 1957 Ninth Printing, however after A&U had already printed the full run, HM backed out of part of the order due to import costs and reduced their order by 1,000 sheet sets. So A&U assumed they would have 1,000 more UK books than originally planned and as such they had Jackets produced for this overrun. Subsequently, HM changed their mind again and took the 1,000 sheet sets they had canceled, thus leaving A&U with 1,000 extra Ninth Impression Jackets. They simply used those extra jackets on the 1958 Tenth Impression Books. So there should be 1000 copies of the 1958 UK Tenth Impression book with a Ninth Impression Jacket, which would make this even more rare than the 3,500 copies of the Tenth Impression books in the Tenth Impression Jackets. The dustjacket is not price clipped and in Very Good Plus/Near Fine condition, with only the most minor of rubbing to the edges, with a tiny bit of loss at the tips of the folds, but lacking any of the normal tears to the edges. Edges of the text block are clean and unfoxed, with the top edge slightly dusty. A beautiful copy, of an early printing, of this much sought after children's classic. Additional digital images are available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Very Good Plus / Very Good Plus.

        Autograph letter signed, from Christie to Wilder regarding Wilder's movie version of "Witness For the Prosecution"

      South Devon, UK, no date.. ALS, one leaf, pp.2, on Christie's note paper printed with her address. Single hole punch and staple, folded once, fine. Housed in presentation book-box. Written out by the author in blue ink; Dear Billy Wilder, Larry Bachman tells me that you never heard whether I liked your picture Witness For the Prosecution. Well- I did [underlined twice]. What's more- I enjoyed [underlined]- a thing I never suspected to when seeing a film made from one of my books! You did a wonderful job and I admire that film very much still. Most people do. So let me make amends. Yours, Agatha Christie. Superb content, and perhaps the author's only written communication with Wilder, who had directed the Oscar-nominated 1958 adaptation of her classic 1948 short story. Wilder, who was regarded as one of the most brilliant and versatile filmmakers of Hollywood's golden age, and who was nominated for eight Academy Awards (winning twice) was responsible for such acclaimed motion pictures as Sunset Boulevard, The Seven Year Itch, The Spirit of St.Louis, Stalag 17 and Some Like It Hot. Less well know are his contributions to cult 60'as films Ocean's Eleven and Casino Royale! A remarkable piece of cinema history.

      N.P. CA.: Fink, 11/20/58, 1958 FOUR PAGE TLS FROM ROBERT FINK 11/20/58 to Henry Miller from his close friend Robert Fink on 8vo., off-white bond in near fine condition. "Dear Henry:- / I need two paperback Colossi very badly. One for Edie's Spanish teachers also teaches French. He was at one time a student of Wallace Folie and for some curious reason never read any of your books! So I wish to give him Colossus, since he is a nice Jewish boychik and his wife is a typical New York girl from the era when all the Yiddish mamas [during the 20's] were naming their daughters Shirley. The Gentiles used other names. . . [ask your first wife!]. Anyway the enclosed is for the Colossi. / I don't know the author of that limerick "tome". It is banned like the Tropics so I can't get one although I have tried". What follows is more about Miller's new sound system, Fink's shopping for corduroy slacks for Miller & Capri pants for Eve, a note about Nexus & 28 'dirty' limericks, Bob's naughty specialty & Miller's fascination. A curious letter signed twice -at the bottom of page 1 & page 4. Page one in very good condition with one short closed tear repaired archivally, otherwise the following pages are in fine condition. Robert Finkelstein (later Fink) was a fan, correspondent, and benefactor of Henry Miller. Their friendship strengthened when Fink and his wife Edie moved to Los Angeles from Chicago in 1949. Fink soon found an excellent job in Los Angeles and opened his own successful electronics business. The Finks visited Big Sur on weekends, sometimes taking food and other gifts for which Miller reciprocated with manuscripts and water colors. Fink offered help in Miller's attempts to help other impoverished writers who appealed to him for funds, food or a place to stay. Fink also began defending Miller against vilifying editorials, writing articles praising Miller's works and character. Provenance: PBA /The Personal Archive of Henry Miller Part I Fine Modern Literature Thursday, June 26, 1997.. Signed by Author. Original Autographed Letters & Documents.

        Doctor Zhivago. Translated from the Russian by Max Hayward and Manya Harari.

      London, Collins and Harvill Press, 1958. Orig. full red cloth w. gilt lettering to back in an excellent, not price-clipped orig. red, blue and yellow dust-jacket w. only very minor nicks and creases to extremities. An excellent, nice and clean copy.. First English edition, first printing of this modern classic, which tells the tragic story of the medical doctor and poet, Yuri Zhivago, in the years during the Russian Revolution.Though begun several decades earlier, the work was completed in 1956, and was submitted for publication to the journal "Novij Mir" the same year, but due to the controversial contents of the work and the Soviet government's dislike of Pasternak, it was rejected. The following year the manuscript was smuggled out of the Soviet Union by the Italian publisher Feltrinelli, who published the book in Russian in Milan in 1957. Already the following year numerous European translations of the work had been made, and the English and Italian ones appeared as the first. These immediate translations and the publications of them partly caused Pasternak being awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1958. Due to the immense popularity of the work, all the European translations were reprinted numerous times.In 1965 the work was made into the large-scale film-production by David Lean, which was nominated for ten Oscars and won five

        [Cyrillic:] Doctor Zhivago.

      Milano; Feltrinelli, n. d. [late 1958 or early 1959]. First official, or first trade edition in Russian. 22x14,5 cm. (3, 1 blank), 566, (1, 1 blank) pp. Publisher's green boards with pictorial dustjacket. The jacket is price-clipped and a bit chipped at extremities. Spine ends and corners are slightly bumped, and there is a small pressure mark on front board. Contents are clean but a bit toned in margins, as should be expected. There is a small separation between the half title and the title leaf, and a minimal hole in the gutter between rear free endpaper and rear board. A gift inscription in Cyrillic on front free endpaper. This edition is often referred to as the first Russian, but it was in fact preceded by the limited edition by Mouton in The Hague, published in late 1958 (cf. Biondi, Working and typesetting manuscript trees and the first and early editions of Doctor Zhivago, in the magazine Firsts, June 2003). Pasternak finished the novel in late 1955, but was never able to publish it in the Soviet Union, since it had been turned down by the official stately publisher, Goslitizdat. Several typescripts of the novel reached Western Europe and a number of translations were initiated, based on the different versions. Feltrinelli's Italian edition of 1957 was the first to be published. Since Pasternak was a candidate for the 1958 Nobel Prize for literature, both Feltrinelli and Mouton wished to publish the novel in Russian before August, should the novel be considered by the Swedish Academy as a part of Pasternak's literary achievement, and Mouton carried this out shortly before Feltrinelli

      Paris, The Olympia Press, (1958). Original printed green wrappers. Green border on title-page. Spine a bit worn, with minor loss of upper layer of paper to hinges and capitals. Light wear to extremities. Lower corner of front wrapper slightly bent. Internally nice and clean.. The scarce first edition, first issue (Traveler's Companion Series, number 64, printed October 1958, with the Francs 1.200 to back wrapper, not overstamped. - N.B. the 1.200 has been crossed out by hand, with a pen, but it is NOT stamped over) of Southern and Hoffenberg's greatly scandalous novel, which was confiscated by the Brigade Mondaine (i.e. La Brigade de répression du proxénétisme (BRP)) and officially banned in France. Candy not only caused an inevitable furor for its vulgar take on contemporary culture, but brought about landmark changes in how the First Amendment applied to erotic literature. The work, which constitutes the unison of three greatly provocative and time-changing minds (Southern, Hoffenberg, and Girodias), quickly gained classic status and is now one of the most famous Beat-novels. It was famously made into an all-star film (starring Marlon Brando, Richard Burton, James Coburn, Charles Aznavour, John Huston, Ringo Starr, Walter Matthau, John Astin, and Ewa Aulin) by Christian Marquand in 1968, and in 2006 Playboy Magazine listed it among the 25 Sexiest Novels Ever Written, describing the story as a young heroine's picaresque travels, a kind of sexual pinball machine that lights up academia, gardeners, the medical profession, mystics and bohemians.The work was published pseudonymously by Maurice Girodias, owner of the scandalous Olympia Press, in October of 1958. Almost immediately noticed by the BRP, who seized copies of it in the Paris bookshops, Candy was officially banned in France in May of 1959 (under a statute called the 1939 Decree, an amendment to the law of 1881, which gave the French government more power to ban offensive publications in foreign languages).In December of 1958, Maurice Girodias changed the title of Candy and reissued it as Lollipop in order to fool sensors and sell the remaining copies of the work. This supposedly work quite well and many copies of the book survived thus, leaving the first edition with the original title quite a scarcity, both in the first (not-overstamped) issue and the second issue. Later on, Candy was published in North America, by Putnam, under the authors' own names, those being Terry Southern and Mason Hoffenberg. In an interview, Terry Southern explains the origin of the pseudonym as thus: Yeah. And the name of the author was Maxwell Kenton. A name I first used with David Burnett, of all people. He was the son of Martha Foley and Whit Burnett of The Best American Short Stories fame. We were collaborating on some short detective stuff, and even sold a couple to Argosy Magazine, and we used the pseudonym 'Maxwell Kenton'. So when Mason at one point had an attack of conscience and said, Man, I've decided I don't want my mother to know about this book, we took the name Maxwell Kenton so his mother would be spared anguish at her Mah-Jong parties. (Smoke Signals).Terry Southern, though mostly famous for his bestseller Candy, which greatly influenced popular culture of the 1960'ies, was known for a lot of things, including writing much of the film dialogue of the landmark films Dr. Strangelove and Easy Rider. In his The Candy Men. The Rollicking Life and Times of the Notorious Novel Candy'', Nile Southern tells the story of the book, the men behind it, and the furor that it caused: When I was in grade school in 1967, one of my six-year-old classmates, Daisy Friedman (now a writer), turned to me and said, Your father is a dirty old man! I asked how she knew that, and she said, He wrote a book called Candy - and it's a dirty, dirty book! Again, I asked how she knew all this, and she said, Because my parents told me - they have it on their bookshelf. Not knowing what a dirty old man was, I came away with the impression that whatever my father was, he was a great Upsetter. I would later learn that young, literate New Yorkers had no issue about having a copy of Candy in their libraries, but this was certainly not the case across the country - censorship and prudishness were in fact still alive and well, not only in the United States but abroad.I first got the idea for The Candy Men after reading a letter in Terry's files from a British barrister advising how (even in 1968) the only way Candy could appear in England would be to undergo a pornectomy - eliminating about eighty instances of what was considered indecency, which the barrister had handily indexed in a kind of blueprint for the operation. The assessment featured page after page of cryptic references to offending words and passages to be excised or modified: Page 60 line 7 COME amend to come to you without capitals; Line 15 jack-off amend to liberate; Page 93 line 2 exactly like an erection. Delete.(...)There were three men responsible for bringing the erotic fantasy Candy to fruition - and they could not have been more different. The first, Maurice Girodias, was Europe's most infamous publisher and indefatigable survivalist. Girodias put out otherwise unpublishable works of (mostly) erotic literature in English when the English-speaking world needed them most: Lolita, Naked Lunch, Henry Miller's The Tropics, the Marquis de Sade. As Girodias wrote of himself, The connecting link is clear enough: anything that shocks because it comes before its time, anything that is liable to be banned by the censors because they cannot accept its honesty. Girodias was also a seasoned gambler. A day out of court is a day wasted, he used to quip.Mason Hoffenberg, the second of the three, was one of the smartest, hippest, most undisciplined poets on the scene - whether it be Joe's Dinette, the Riviera bar in the Village, or the Old Navy on the Left Bank of Paris. A permanently kicking junkie as William Burroughs once described him, Mason the writer never really got started - though Terry, his best friend, described him as a Nobel Prize-type genius.And Terry Southern, a writer with a destiny and a killer ear for dialogue. Terry's mandate was to take things as far out as they could go - with absolute credibility. A prose stylist gone Hollywood - his Texan, Irish, and Native American roots made him Trickster and Taurus bull - oblivious to the rules of the Game

      Dated "Freiburg i Brsg. 6. März 1958". 1/2 page 4to. Heidegger thanks Giustiniani for a very nice evening in his house together with his Italian students. He furthermore thanks him for an admittance card to the Italian national museaum and asks G. to thank the Government Department for it as well. Heidegger, who was not fond of travelling, hopes to be able to visit soon, since he has long wished to visit Italy.. The letter is for the Italian Freiburger colleague, Vito R. Giustiniani (1916 - 1998). Enclosed it the carbon copy of the letter written by Giustiniani to Heidegger on "5.3.1958", in which he thanks him in very warm tones for having visited him and spent time with his students, and in which he tells him about the entrance card for the national Italian museum and the excavations, which the Italian Ministery of Teching has made for Heidegger and his wife
