        Mani (Signed And Doodled By The Author To Theodore Stephanides)

      The First UK printing published by John Murray in 1958. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. A little pushing at the spine ends. Light fading to the spine which has slightly encroached onto the front cover. Boards lightly marked places. Gilt tilting and motif remain bright. Light toning to the text block. The WRAPPER is in Very Good++ or better condition and is clipped (as commonly found) with the publisher's revised price present. A little minor rubbing and toning to the spine and rear cover with a few nicks. The John Craxton designed wrapper looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival protector. The book has been INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the first blank end paper: 'To Theodore Stephanides, with many greetings from Patrick Leigh Fermor, London, April 1964'. The author has also doodled a copy of the eye and the greek wording (relating to page 187 : 'Where is Alexander The Great.') from the frontispiece design. There is also the name in pencil of "T.Stephanides' to the upper front end paper. Theodore Stephanides was a Greek poet, author, doctor and naturalist. He is best remembered as the friend and mentor of the famous naturalist Gerald Durrell, featuring in many of Durrell's books including 'My Family and Other Animals, Birds, Beasts and Relatives', Durrell's brother Lawrence's 'Prospero's Cell', and Henry Miller's 'The Colossus of Maroussi'. He was a close friend of Leigh Fermor. A polymath, Stephanides was respected as a scientist and doctor, and acclaimed as a poet in both Greek and English, and translated a sizeable body of Greek poetry to English: notably a significant body of work by Greek poet Kostis Palamas and the Greek near-epic work Erotocritos. He was also a noted biologist and scientist who has three species named after him. He also wrote a definitive biological treatise on the freshwater life in Corfu. His autobiographical account of the Battle of Crete - 'Climax in Crete', and his fictitious account of Corfu and the Ionian Islands - 'Island Trails were widely read', but are now sadly out of print. A significant association copy and very scarce with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

      New York: Mystery House, [1958].. Octavo, cloth. First edition. Gil Brewer was on the major writers in the Gold Medal line of paperback originals. This hard-boiled novel is one of two books published in hardcover by Brewer, both of which are scarce.

Anthony Boucher called THE RED SCARF the "all around best Gil Brewer ... a full packed story" (New York Times). Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, pp. 90-1. Some light black staining to edges of black boards and endpapers from an old style dust jacket protector, light abrasion to front free endpaper, a very good plus to near fine copy in very good dust jacket with light shelf wear to spine ends and corners with a little stress creasing, lower edge of dust jacket shows a little black staining. Still an attractive copy of a scarce book. (#125552)

      1958 - 2 vol., soit 1 volume Lausanne, André et Pierre Gonin, 1958, in-folio, 2 vol, soit 1 volume comportant le texte illustré de 165-[1] pp. ; et un recueil de documents variés, en feuillets, sous couvertures rempliées et emboîtages en demi-parchemin, Splendide ouvrage, illustré de 24 lavis en couleurs originaux peints à la main par Jean-Pierre Rémon, dont 10 à pleine page. Édition limitée à 165 exemplaires numérotés : un des 20 exemplaires sur Japon super-nacré des Moulins Tosa de l'Île Shikoku, comprenant une suite de dix aquarelles originales, signé à la justification par l'artiste et par l'éditeur (n° 6). Exemplaire exceptionnellement accompagné d'un recueil de documents, placé sous couverture et emboîtage identique, contenant les recherches et les peintures préliminaires à la conception et à la mise en page de l'ouvrage, collectées et réalisées par Jean-Pierre Rémon au cours de l'année 1958 : cet ensemble ouvre sur une préface manuscrite de l'artiste et se compose de nombreuses photographies, des lettres, des dessins originaux, ainsi que du journal de l'illustrateur lors de son séjour en Normandie, d'un portrait photographique de Gide inédit signé par Germaine Krull et dédicacée au dos par M. [illisible], d'un contretype représentant Gide à Fongueusemare offert à l'illustrateur par le neveu et filleul de Gide, d'un second contretype de Gide et de Malraux ainsi que de nombreuses photographies originales prises par Jean-Pierre Rémon au cours de ses recherches. Parmi les lettres, on peut lire celle de Dominique Drouin, neveu et filleul d'André Gide à propos d'une visite de Jean-Pierre Rémon à Cuverville et mentionnant la présente édition de La Porte Étroite. Rémon correspondait également avec André Gonin, son éditeur auquel il adressa deux cartes et une lettre contenant une aquarelle originale, envoyée de Fongueusemare, "où se promène encore l'ombre d'André Gide" : une des cartes, représentant une vue du Havre, évoque le séjour en Normandie de l'artiste et "la porte dérobée du jardin" de la propriété de Gide ; dans la seconde carte, ornée du château de Cuverville, Rémon écrit qu'il visitera le musée du Havre ancien pour "chercher des documents" ; dans la dernière lettre, toujours adressée à André Gonin, datée du 29 mars 1958 et envoyée depuis la propriété d'André Gide, le peintre évoque la porte du jardin et livre ses impressions : "je me suis senti envahi d'une étrange émotion comme si, vraiment pour la première fois, je venais de prendre contact avec les personnages du livre". Ce recueil contient aussi une suite en couleurs des illustrations de l'édition de La Porte Étroite, de nombreux croquis et aquarelles originaux signés. L'original du contrat de Mercure de France signé par Paul Hartmann clôt l'ouvrage. À la lecture du journal de Jean-Pierre Rémon, le lecteur saisit à quel point l'artiste, en plus d'avoir une excellente connaissance du texte et de l'auteur, s'est engagé dans ce projet, s'est imprégné de l'univers de Gide et de celui des personnages de La Porte Étroite. Ce travail est un bel hommage rendu à Gide, quelques années après sa mort. Très bel exemplaire, accompagné de cet unique et curieux recueil de l'artiste. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Rocket Summer. A musical outline

      [New York]: Alert, [1958-59]. 4to. 49 pp. Mechanically reproduced typescript, clean and unmarked. Original printed wrappers closed with three contemporary brass clasps. Based upon stories taken from Ray Bradbury's 'The Martian Chronicles,' the musical outlined here was never produced. This outline appears to be the earliest attempt to adapt Bradbury's story into a musical. Bradbury himself, along with seasoned screenwriter Sidney Carroll and Oscar-winning film director Leonard Rosenman, outline a proposed adaptation in detail. Attempts to make "Rocket Summer" into a musical thus took place earlier than previously thought. Lerner and Loewe famously were turned down in the 1960s when they asked Bradbury to adapt his story -- and it did not reach the stage until 2008, composed by Daniel Levy and with a libretto by Elizabeth Margid. This copy was that of screenwriter Sidney Carroll. An absolutely unique Bradbury item, with no other copies traced. Due the abandonment of the project, this copy retained by Carroll may well be the only copy extant. Light toning to edges, old tape adhesion on front wrapper.

        Autograph letter Signed 'E. Waugh' to Major Sir Ralph Dolignon FURSE (Evelyn, 1903-1966, Author)

      1958 - (1887–1973, civil servant) thanking him for going to "such trouble in answering my questions about the Old Parsonage. you have given me just what I needed. Thanks awfully. ." and thanking him also for the memoir of D. R. Brandt, and for offering him other books, he continues that "Laura Lovat must have misunderstood me. I have Ronnie's own copies. I am so very sorry you shall have been put to the trouble of borrowing them. Neville Bland has been most helpful . in reconstructing Ronalds Eton career. All his old friends have been astonishingly kind . " he asks if he has "any strong views about a memorial to Ronald? Roman Catholics will, I think, wish to raise money for a specifically popish foundation connected, perhaps, with the Oxford chaplaincy. But some of us think that his non Catholic friends would like some other memorial nearer their sympathies. It has been suggested that something should be done at Trinity - a visible memorial and a scholarship or prize of some kind, according to the amount subscribed. This seems to me an excellent plan. I am sure that in later years his sentiment was at Trinity rather than Balliol .", 2 sides 4to., Combe Florey house, nr Taunton, 22nd January Sir Ralph was the only child of John Henry Monsell Furse, sculptor. In 1914 he married Margaret Cecilia (1890–1975) , daughter of the poet Sir Henry Newbolt. He was on active service throughout the war with King Edward's Horse, and was wounded in 1917. He won the DSO and bar and was twice mentioned in dispatches. They had two sons and two daughters. Both the daughters married Sir Laurence WHISTLER (1912-2000, poet and artist). After the death of his first wife, the actress Jill Furse, he married her sister Theresa. Evelyn Waugh was a close friend of Ronald KNOX (1888-1957, Priest, theologian and author of detective stories) and his literary executor. His biography 'The Life of Ronald Knox' appeared two years after his death. Waugh was a devout Catholic and fervent admirer of Knox's works. Unpublished.

        Stacked Deck: An Opera

      No Place: Privately Printed, 1958. First edition. Paperback. Near Fine. Extremely early work by Fluxus artist and writer Dick Higgins. 14 typed sheets, stapled at top left corner and printed on rectos only and then bradbound into a yellow thick paper folder with the title elaborately stenciled on the front cover. Not dated, but from 1958 as reported by Higgins himself in the Something Else Newsletter Volume 1 Number 1 from February 1966. In that newsletter he briefly writes about this piece: "In 1958 I wrote a piece, Stacked Deck, in which any event can take place at any time, as long as its cue appears. The cues are produced by colored lights. Since the colored lights could be used wherever they were put and audience reactions were also cuing situations, the performer-audience separation was removed and a happening situation was established, though less visually oriented in its useof its environment and imagery." Besides being the founder of the Something Else Press and the coiner of the term "Intermedia" Higgins, who passed away in 1998 was intimately involved in the 60's happenings and environments art movement. Quite scarce - OCLC locates only 3 copies. Lightly worn, else fine condition.

Followed further by: typed index of [25] pages composed of entries culled from Besterman's compilation (published by Oxford in 1958). Hardcover in baby blue buckram. 37cm.
