        The Institution of Electrical Engineers Convention on Thermonuclear Processes held in conjunction with the British Nuclear Energy Conference 29th-30th April, 1959.

      20 preprint papers (and one duplicate) on thermonuclear fusion from the first conference on the subject held in Britain, including work by leading researchers associated with the ZETA and Sceptre experiments. The papers, along with a mimeographed introductory letter, are housed in a custom card folder printed with the conference details. It is unclear who the recipient was, but a note from a librarian on a fusion reference has been included with the material, and the name D. W. Hart appears on its verso in ink. The papers present here were all later published in the Proceedings of the Institution of Electrical Engineers volume 106, part A. While the published version is not uncommon, we have been unable to locate any records of preprint sets such as this one. The impetus for this conference was the 1958 Atoms for Peace convention in Geneva, at which prominence was given to research on fusion for civilian energy generation. As reported in the Institution's journal, "Initially it was thought reasonable to present many of the papers which had been read at Geneva, but later, when the date was fixed as April 1959, it was seen to be reasonable to present more recent results and indeed to review progress since the Geneva Conference. It was also decided to include in lecture form some data regarding recent advances in the United States and Soviet Union. Nevertheless, the theme has remained the same, namely to give to members of the Institution and others who may be interested an account of the development of thermonuclear processes and the possibilities of power production by this technique" (Journal of the Institute of Electrical Engineers vol. 5, issue 52, April 1959). The conference speakers covered a wide range of topics, most notably the UK's two main fusion experiments, ZETA and Sceptre IIIA. ZETA (Zero Energy Thermonuclear Energy Assembly) began operation in 1957 and was the most powerful and scientifically significant fusion experiment anywhere in the world at the time. Early results leaked to the press in 1958 led to front-page headlines implying that the UK was close to achieving free, unlimited power, and ZETA was described as Britain's Sputnik. The eventual retractions cast a pall over all later thermonuclear research. Sceptre was constructed to test ZETA's results. Though it initially confirmed them, its results too were eventually found to be spurious. The papers on these experiments include "Sceptre IIIA" by fusion pioneer A. A. Ware (who, together with Stan Cousins, set up the first experiments at Imperial College London in 1947); "The Design and Performance of ZETA" by a group that included leading fusion researchers Peter Thonemann, and R. S. "Bas" Pease; "The ZETA Transformer and Auxiliary Circuit Equipment" by E. R. Hartill' and "The Modification of ZETA in 1958" by Mitchell, et al. Though some of the ZETA and Spectre data had been presented at Geneva, "a lot of new details and performance data [was] included, particularly in regard to Sceptre IIIA and in connection with the instrumentation and measurement problems involved" and the session on ZETA included "more detailed explanation than could be provided at Geneva" as well as more recent work in the paper on the 1958 modifications (Journal of the Institute of Electrical Engineers vol. 5, issue 52, April 1959). Other topics included the future of constricted plasma, compressing plasma with azimuthal currents, plasma circuit dynamics, and energy storage and conversion. The Institute later reported that the conference "proved a most successful and informative meeting with wide international participation, for more than 420 delegates attended the five sessions, and of these nearly 60 were overseas registrations... The one thing which emerged from the papers to be presented, and from those given at Geneva, was that nobody had yet been proved to have really achieved controlled thermonuclear reaction, despite claims to the contrary. Nevertheless a great deal had been, and was being learned - especially about the things which could go wrong" (Journal of the Institute of Electrical Engineers vol. 5, issue 55, June 1959). London: The Institution of Electrical Engineers, 1959. 21 preprints of papers delivered at the conference, 1 duplicate and 1 in typescript (presumably a late paper that wasn't received in time to be printed). Together with a mimeographed letter to the attendee, and a note on blue paper from a librarian explaining that a microcard of "Energy transfer to cold electrons in DCX" is available. Housed together in a tan folder printed with the convention details. Illustrations and charts within the text. The folder a little rubbed and tanned, but the contents fresh and clean. Excellent condition.

        A Bear Called Paddington

      London: Collins, 1958. First edition of the first book in the Paddington series. Octavo, original red cloth. Inscribed by Michael Bond on the half title page. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing to the front panel and a few small closed tears. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A nice example of a book that is usually found well worn. "Paddington's appeal came not only from the hilarious situations and mishaps in which he found himself... but also from Peggy Fortnum's pen-and-ink sketches, which capture Paddington's bewitching charm and combination 'little boy/small bear' character... Bond's books recognize the everyday worries of small, accident-prone children and treat their fears with compassion, wit and laughter" (Silvey, 70-71).

        Archive of seven important content letters to leftist British journalist Jon Kimche, editor of the "Jewish Observer" in London from Shimon Peres, Eliahu Elath, Jacob Tsur, Israel Sieff and Nahum Goldmann.

      Various, 1958-1963. "Jon Kimche (1909-1994), a Swiss Jew, came to England with his family in 1921 and became involved with the socialist Independent Labour Party. The ILP was affiliated with Britain's Labour Party. He became head of the ILP Guild of Youth in the 1930s. In the early years of World War II, Kimche contributed articles on military strategy to London's daily paper, the "Evening Standard." In the 1940s, he worked at the socialist weekly "Tribune." By 1946, his primary interest lay in the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine. From 1946-1948, he was co-editor of the "Tribune" but was fired after disappearing from the office in December 1947 to Istanbul to negotiate safe passage with Turkish authorities for two ships sailing from Bulgaria with thousands of Jews aboard bound for Palestine. He was editor of the "Jewish Observer and Middle East Review" in London for 15 years and was Middle East correspondent of the "Evening Standard" until 1973. He later edited the monthly "The New Middle East." Kimche's books include "Seven Fallen Pillars: The Middle East, 1915-1950" (1950), "Spying for Peace: General Guisan and Swiss Neutrality" (1962), "The Unfought Battle" (1968), "The Second Arab Awakening" (1970), and "Palestine or Israel" (1970).All letters are in English to Jon Kimche, Editor of the "Jewish Observer" in London. Staple holes in upper left of most pages. In mostly fine condition; many are probably unpublished. Comprises:(1) Shimon Peres (born 1923; Prime Minister, 1977, 1984-1986, 1995-1996; President since 1997). Rare Autograph Letter Signed "Shimon" on both sides of his 5" x 4" personal card, December 22, 1965. Staple holes in upper left. Peres, a member of the Knesset since 1959, had served as Deputy Minister of Defence from 1959 until May 25, 1965. Levi Eshkol had been both Prime Minister and Minister of Defence since 1963. In part, "Here we are at dead political season, sick government and an empty purse. We shall overcome it. I am more worried about the future. I am afraid that some people with a drugstore mentality, may run the country for a long time. People are charmed by prosperity, if not the national one, at least the personal standard of living, which is high. Otherwise they care very little, for the time being..."(2) Shimon Peres. Typed Letter Signed "Shimon Peres" as Deputy Minister of Defence,, one page, 8.5" x 11". Tel-Aviv, January 17, 1963. In part, "I am sending you herewith a memorandum with a few critical remarks on the "Jewish Observer"'s approach to the problem of Russian Jews and to Russia herself..." The unsigned Typed Memorandum, two pages, 8.5" x 11", separate sheets originally stapled to Peres' letter in present. It begins, "The 'Jewish Observer' has recently published a few things about Israel's attitude towards the Soviet Union, that are prejudicial to Israeli and Jewish interests..." (3) Jacob Tsur (born 1937; Member of the Knesset from 1981-1992; Minister of Immigrant Absorption from 1984-1988, Minister of Health from 1988-1990, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development from 1992-1996). Early Typed Letter Signed "J. Tsur", one page, 8.5" x 11". Jerusalem, January 12, 1966. In part, "I just received the last issue of the 'Jewish Observer' containing, among other articles an appreciation of Golda Meir's tenure as Foreign Minister of Israel ... I do not share your views on the trends of Israel's foreign policy during the period described..." Unsigned carbon of Kimche's January 26, 1966 reply is stapled to it at upper left.(4) Eliahu Elath (1903-1990; first Israeli Ambassador to the United States, 1948-1950; Ambassador to the United Kingdom, 1950-1959). Typed Letter Signed "Eliahu as Israeli Ambassador to the United Kingdom, one page, 8" x 10". London, June 24, 1958. In part, "I saw a reference in the last issue of the Observer to a book by Dr. Zeine on Arab nationalism. Do you think I could borrow it? I know Zeine well personally from the time we studied together in Beirut. He is a Bah'ai and a liberal-minded man..." Unsigned carbon of Kimche's June 26, 1966 reply is pinned to it at upper left.(5) Israel M. Sieff (1889-1972; British businessman, endowed the 1934 creation by Chaim Weizmann of the Daniel Sieff Research Institute in Rehovot, renamed the Weizmann Institute in 1949; created Baron Sieff in 1966). Typed Letter Signed "Israel M. Sieff," one page, 7" x 9". London, January 28, 1959. In full, "I send you extracts from a letter I have received from Nahum Goldman. I would like to discuss this with you when we meet tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon, because it is desireable that the inference that the Jewish Agency, or any Israeli organisation - Governmental or otherwise - is incompetent to deal with immigration has got to be scotched right away." Two page typed "Excerpts from Dr. Nahum Goldman's letter to Mr. Israel Sieff," Amsterdam, January 25, 1959, is present. Unsigned carbon of Kimche's January 29. 1959 reply to Sieff is present, enclosing "a translation of a front page story in Tuesday's Ma'ariv..." which is also present.(6) Israel M. Sieff. Typed Letter Signed "Israel," one page, 7" x 9". London, February 9, 1959. In full, "Thank you for sending me a copy of your letter to Nahum. I hope it will have the desired effect." Unsigned 2.5 page unsigned copy of Kimche's letter to Nahum Goldman is present.(7) Nahum Goldmann (1895-1982; leading Zionist; founder and President of the World Jewish Congress from1948-1977). Typed Letter Signed "Nahum," one page, 8.25" x 11". New York, March 4, 1959. On lightweight stationery of "The Jewish Agency for Israel." Frayed at lower right edge and bottom edge. In part, "I received your letter of January 6th. In the meantime, I had several discussions with Israel Sieff who agrees with me about what I am proposing to you. I don't want to go into the past. You have, on several occasions been, to put it mildly, careless in reporting. I am sure that you have enough good taste to admit that ... My suggestion to you and to Sieff is that an assistant editor be engaged who will deal with Zionist and Jewish problems ... Permit me to tell you in all frankness that on internal Zionist and Jewish problems you have not manifested the same understanding and insight which characterizes you when you write about Middle East problems...""

        THE POTTING SHED A Play in Three Acts.

      Heinemann 1958 - First UK edition. Blue cloth in printed dustwrapper. Author's presentation copy, inscribed to the front endpaper to Mercia Ryhiner, "For Mercia, in memory of Singapore where I tried to write it. from Graham" A near fine copy, with a little fading to the spine in a very good (price clipped) dustwrapper indeed with a trace of wear to the spine ends and corners. Mercia Tinker was married to Peter Ryhiner when she first met Greene in the far east in 1953. Following a divorce, she was successively married to Robert Schwob (1959) and then to Rex Harrison in 1978. Her relationship with Greene is not much mentioned by Greene's biographers, however the collection of letters and postcards sent to her by Greene, now held at Columbia University, hold testament to a lengthy, close and often passionate relationship. In 1954 Greene writes of his longing to see her again, and in October from Rome writes of of the only two people he loved, "you and Catherine". Greene was constantly travelling at that time and they could only meet infrequently, so their passion subsided. They remained prolific correspondents, Greene offering support though the break up of Mercia's marriages, and in turn enlisting her help in finding accommodation in Switzerland for his daughter after the break up of her marriage.

      The First UK Printing published by Collins in 1958. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Some light markings to the boards in places. Very superficial light water stain to rear upper cover but negligible. Light pushing at the spine ends with a little bumping at the lower corners. The silver titling remains bright. Light toning with some spotting to the text block. The end papers and pages remain clean. One neat previous owner's name to the upper front blank endpaper. The WRAPPER has been neatly price clipped and is in Very Good++ condition. Mild edge wear with a small chip to the front lower edge and a 4cm closed tear to the lower rear spine fold. The spine colouring remains very bright. Some spotting to the verso which is visible on the front at the flap folds and white portion of the front cover. The Peggy Fortnum designed wrapper looks very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. The book is accompanied by a H/W signed letter from the author on his personal address headed notepaper and is dated '8th July 1985'. The recipient of the letter was a 'Mr King'. The original H/W envelope accompanies this letter. In the letter, the author replies to a request for an autographed bookplate: '.I don't have a personal one - the only thing I can offer is a card from Paddington - not quite the same thing I know. But I am enclosing in case of interest.' This enclosed card is present. It measures 21 x13cm. There is a printed image of Paddington and a paw print. The author has written : 'To MR KING, WITH ALL GOOD WISHES, PADINGTON'. This card is also signed by Michael Bond in blue ink. Michael Bond characteristically misspelt Paddington's name when signing on his behalf. There is a light partial horizontal crease to the card. A scarce first title in the 'Paddington' series and accompanied by equally scarce signed ephemera. Collectible with such attributes. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        Dr. No

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1958 First edition, first impression, second state of the sixth novel in the James Bond series. One of 16,020 copies. Publisher's black cloth, with a silhouette of a dancing woman ('Honeychile') silhouette on the front board in dark brown, spine lettered in metallic silver; in the original pictorial dust jacket designed by Pat Marriott, with the same illustration of a dancing woman's silhouette in black in front of a brown background to the front panel, lettered in white and black. About fine, with just a hint of soiling to the rear board, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with some very light rubbing to the spine and corners, tiny red stain to the front flap fold, else very fine. Overall, a very fresh and attractive copy. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Gilbert A6a (1.3). In this Bond adventure, 007 heads to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of an MI6 agent in what should be "a time-wasting, shabby little case in the Caribbean." However, an early attack on Bond's life quickly exposes the seriousness of the situation, and Bond discovers a series of island mysteries all relating back to the villainous Dr. Julius No, a Chinese-German reclusive criminal with metal pincers for hands. Although it is the sixth story in the 007 series, a is the first Bond book to be adapted into a film, perhaps because it contains one of Fleming's most bizarre and twisted villains.. Illus. by Marriott, Pat. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

In the letter, the author refers to the release and his involvement in the new Paddington film: 'The Paddington film you mention is due out at the end of November and has a star studded cast. The nice thing about it is they are all lovers of Paddington, so I have high hopes there won't be too much 'updating', though given the changes to another medium there are bound to be some. I saw the script and made some suggestions.' A scarce first title in the 'Paddington' series especially signed and accompanied by equally scarce signed ephemera. Collectible with such attributes. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
