        The Edge of Tomorrow

      New York: Farrar, Strauss and Cudahy. 1958. Reprint. Slight age-toning on the boards, small new bookstore label, else near fine in good or better dustwrapper with a chip on the front panel and some splashmarks on the spine. Full-page Inscription by the author: "To the Kingston Trio with best wishes from Dooley, and a thunder of thanks from high valley. Tom Dooley." Envelope laid in from a hotel in his home town of St. Louis, also Signed by Dooley. Account of the Roman Catholic humanitarian and bestselling author Thomas Dooley establishing a hospital in Laos, five miles from the border with Red China. Dooley had also done humanitarian work in Vietnam in the early 1950s, where his two stated purposed were to fight disease and Communism. Reportedly upon his death he was considered for Sainthood in the Catholic Church. To those too young to recall, the Kingston Trio had a huge #1 hit in 1958, the same year as this book, with the traditional American song Tom Dooley, based on the true story of a North Carolina man who reputedly murdered his true love and was hung. The real Tom Dooley died of cancer in 1961, at the time he was one of the best-known people in the world, but has since fallen into obscurity. A curious and amusing association. .

        CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (1958)

      MGM 1958 - Vintage original 30 x 40" (75 x 100 cm.) quad poster, UK. Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Burl Ives, Judith Anderson, Madeleine Sherwood, dir: Richard Brooks; MGM. The highly adult filming of Tennessee Williams' work was paramount in the loosening of the strict censorship code in film making, as were all films of Williams' work during this period. It was an actor's film, with each star perfectly cast to their role. If there were any question of it, Elizabeth Taylor was now grown up and a fine actress in her mature roles. It is difficult to think of anyone else as Maggie the Cat. Here she is in a provocative pose with the famous gold iron bed which was used in a number of MGM films and touted at their 1971 auction. In the UK the film received what was then an "X" certificate -- for adults only. Poster is on linen with only minor touch-up to the folds and smoothing of a few inter creases. NEAR FINE

        The Book of Urizen.

      Clairvaux, Jura, France: The Trianon Press for the William Blake Trust, 1958 - Tall quarto. Original red half morocco, marbled sides, top edge gilt. Housed in the publisher's marbled slipcase. Very slight rubbing to the tips, and some rubbing to the extremities of the slipcase, excellent condition. Colour illuminated facsimiles thoughout achieved by collotype and hand stencil. First edition thus, number 332 of 480 copies thus (this one of the 240 for the United States), from a total edition of 526 copies on Arches pure rag paper made to match that used by Blake, each page watermarked with Blake's monogram. Blake scholar Geoffrey Keynes (1887-1982), the brother of John Maynard, provides a commentary and bibliographical history: "The Book of Urizen contains the first part of Blake's conception of the universal myth. It recounts the story of the creation of the material world and of mankind, and so has to deal with the inherent problem of evil. Urizen, the God of reason, resembling the Hebrew Jehovah, is the Creator. Los, the poetic genius and symbol of time, is also introduced, since Reason cannot exist without Imagination; but from Los developed Pity, resulting in the division of his soul with the appearance of his Emanation, named Enitharmon, his female counterpart. The offspring of Los and Enitharmon is Orc, the Spirit of Revolt. Ultimately Urizen establishes religion, and mankind becomes entangled in the web of religion as civilisation emerges in Egypt."

      - Paris, Editions Voies nouvelles, 1958-1959. Ensemble de 9 livraisons reliées en un volume in-folio (235 x 308 mm), demi-percaline rouge, pièce de titre de basane noire. Ensemble complet, rare, de tout ce qui a paru, de ce périodique dirigé par le philologue, juriste et historien spécialiste de la Grèce antique, Louis Gernet. Révolté, par la politique de la France en Algérie et par l’évolution autoritaire de la Cinquième république, en 1958, à soixante-seize ans, Louis Gernet accepta de diriger cette revue de l'opposition communiste, alors à la pointe du combat, politique mais aussi culturel. On y retrouve des articles de Jean-Toussaint Desanti, Henri Lefebvre, Jean Massin, Alain Resnais, Maxime Rodinson, Hélène Parmelin, Serge Mallet, etc., etc. Louis Gernet sera l’un des signataires du "Manifeste des 121" en 1960. Bon exemplaire, bien relié, très bien conservé. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Les Américains. Photographies de Robert Frank. Textes réunis et présentés par Alain Bosquet

      Paris: Robert Delpire, 1958. 172, [2] S., Or.Pbd. mit einer Deckelillustration, kl.8°, quer. Encyclopédie essentielle, vol 5. Parr/Badger I, S. 247. Eines der wichtigsten Fotobücher der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts. Das finden auch Parr und Badger, sie stellen allerdings die amerikanische Ausgabe, mit dem Essay von Jack Kerouac, in den Mittelpunkt. Das Original, mit Texten von Simone de Beauvoir, Alain Bosquet, John Brown, Omar N. Bradley, Erskine Caldwell, John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, Henry Miller, Claude Roy, John Steinbeck, Richard Wright und einer Deckelzeichnung von Saul Steinberg, sei eher etwas "Soziologisches" und vielleicht sogar etwas "Anti-Amerikanisches"... Selten. Einband etwas angestaubt und, wie leider so oft, mit Beschädigungen im Gelenk. Am Rücken oben eine sorgfältigst geflickte Bruchstelle. Schnitt etwas angestaubt. Insgesamt gutes Exemplar.
