        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 Unpublished.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.

        Vivien Leigh writes to Joyce Huddart, a personal friend with a theater connection in London

      n.p., April 15, 1958. 5.5" x 7". "Single page TLS on pale blue stationary, 5.5"" x 7"" with Vivien Leigh's personal letterhead. Dated April 15, 1958, and signed by Vivien Leigh as ""Vivien Leigh"". Right edge is slightly discolored, else near fine condition.Vivien Leigh writes a letter to her close friend, Joyce Huddart. One can project that she perhaps met Joyce during her period acting in the theaters of London. Joyce was head of wardrobe and also participated as stage crew for the London Tower Theatre, and the two corresponded regularly over a period of many years. Vivien Leigh's ultimate passion was for roles in theater. She was quoted as saying, ""I'm not a film star - I'm an actress. Being a film star - just a film star - is such a false life, lived for fake values and for publicity. Actresses go on for a long time and there are always marvelous parts to play.""This letter to Joyce was written during her role in the Shakespeare play Titus Andronicus, in which she played the role of Lavinia alongside her husband who played Titus Andronicus. Her letter thanks her loyal friend for the ""lovely freesias and tulips"", and noted she was ""happy to know that you enjoyed the play: I am looking forward to coming to London with hit"". Vivien had already endured an extended and turbulent battle with bipolar disorder, which had taken a long and exhausting toll on Lawrence. By 1958, both considered their marriage to be over. Larry was already having an affair with actress Joan Plowright and Vivien had taken up with actor Jack Merivale. But these turned out to be more than mere affairs as both would stay with their new partners until their death.A wonderful signed letter to her personal friend."
