        Autograph letter Signed in full to Major Sir Ralph Dolignon FURSE (Evelyn, 1903-1966, Author)

      1958 - (1887–1973, civil servant) explaining that he is "writing the life of Ronnie Knox and shall be most grateful if you could give me any reminiscences of the year when you shared with him at the Old Parsonage. The names of his fellow lodgers which I have, are your own, D. R. Brandt, W. G. Fletcher, H. K. Marsden. The last two are familiar to me. Can you tell me anything of Brandt? Were there any others in the house? Am I right in supposing that during his last year Ronald was working hard for Greats and had given up most of his other activities? Did he see as much as ever of Julian Grenfell, Shaw-Stewart & Horace after they moved into digs? I have a lot of material on Ronald's first three years. The last is a blank and I shall be most grateful for any details .", 2 sides 4to., Combe Florey house, nr Taunton, 9th 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 Unpublished.

        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. .

      Svensk Filmindustri 1958 - Vintage original 39 x 27 ¾" (100 x 70 cm.) one sheet poster, Sweden. Max von Sydow, Ingrid Thulin, dir: Ingmar Bergman; Svensk Filmindustri. An extremely rare Swedish poster for this early Swedish film classic by Bergman -- a semi-horror film (about a charlatan magician who may or may not have any true powers) which had an enormous impact when released in the US and UK soon after its Swedish debut (I personally saw it as a kid, and it scared the hell out of me when I first saw it!). The original Swedish title translates as "The Face", and it was under that title (or a translation of it) that it was shown in many countries, including the UK and Italy, but in the US it was given the slightly more provocative title The Magician. On linen, with the most trifling professional touch-ups at folds and margins, overall a superb example (and the only one which I have ever had), FINE

        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

      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."
