        "Emmanuel Chabrier". Autograph manuscript, signed twice. N. p., 1959.

      1959. Title page, 23 numbered pp. on 23 ff; half-title, pp. 24-78 on 55 ff. Blue ink on one-sided checked paper; proof reader's corrections in pencil. Spiral-bound cardboard wrappers, inscribed "Francis Poulenc I - Chabrier". Small 4to. One of only a few literary manuscripts by the eminent French composer, extremely rare in trade. In this paper, which appeared in 1961 at La Palatine publishers, Paris-Genève, Poulenc compresses, as he writes in the preface, "une véritable passion" that he felt from adolescence onwards for Chabrier's music, into a memorial full of warmth, enthusiasm, and linguistic beauty. - The present ms. comprises the preface, the introduction "Portrait de Chabrier", and Chapters I and II (cf. pp. 1-78 in the printed version); Chapters III and IV (in the book pp. 80-119) might have filled another, clearly thinner quarto issue, the whereabouts of which are unknown today and are not established by MGG or New Grove.

        'The Birthday Party' SIGNED

      An exceptionally rare first edition of Pinter's second full-length play, published in limited numbers by Encore Publishing in 1959. This edition is signed on the title page by the author, with a personal dedication to the actress Margery Withers - the second actress to play the part of 'Meg' (and the first to do so on television). - - - - - - - - - - The Birthday Party was first staged in the spring of 1958 at the Arts Theatre in Cambridge, before playing in Oxford and Wolverhampton. It opened in London, at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, in May 1958 and infamously closed after only eight performances. It's failure is said to have caused Pinter to consider ending his ambition to be a playwright but subsequent revivals have cemented it's status as a classic. In 1959 the play received it's first such re-evalution when it was performed by the Tavistock Repertory Company at the Tower Theatre in Islington, London. This production provides the cover photograph of Encore's first edition. Pinter, who lived locally, saw the production and attended some rehearsals (although he was not directly involved in the production). The company, run by non-professionals, were the first to stage the play after it's 1958 opening. [Tower Theatre archive:] This copy of the book belonged to Margery Withers, the actress who played 'Meg' in the Tavistock Rep Company production. It is personally signed by Pinter with the following message: "To Margery, I shall always remember your wonderful performance as Meg. You were the one and only belle of the ball. Love Harold." It is dated, by Pinter,  'Dec. 59'. The quote 'the one and only belle of the ball' is taken directly from the play itself. - - - - - - - - - - In 1960 Margery was offered to reprise the role in the world's first television production of the play. At the time she was working at the BBC and could not get permission to appear in the ITV drama - emboldened and encouraged by Pinter she quit her job to become an actress full-time. She made her professional debut in the ITV television version of this play and subsequently appeared in numerous British television series and films over the next 40 years, including parts in Coronation Street, Z Cars, The Bill, Casualty and Mike Leigh's Secrets and Lies. She died in 1999. Harold Pinter went on to become one of Britain's most celebrated playwrights, screenwriters, actors, poets and theatre directors. In 2005 he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. He died in 2008. Condition: This was Margery's personal copy and has suffered a little wear to the edges. The front page with the signature has been secured to the front cover with sellotape at some point. This doesn't impinge on the signature and with a bit of careful restoration a better job could be made of this. There's also a small corner of the title page missing, but otherwise the book is complete with no other lose pages and no major defects. The binding now is tight. Pinter signatures from the 1950s are also incredibly rare. This is a first edition of Pinter's first published play, signed and dated by the author with a personal message to his leading lady.

        Autograph Letter Signed [ALS] on the meaning of The Old Man and the Sea

      San Francisco de Paula, Cuba: np. FIRST EDITION. no binding. Very Good. AN OUTSTANDING AND IMPORTANT AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY HEMINGWAY ON THE NATURE OF THE STRUGGLE AND THE ULTIMATE MEANING OF THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA. The letter, written on Hemingway's Finca Vigia (Cuba) letterhead and dated April 19, 1959, is Hemingway's response to an inquiry from an Israeli boy, Tsur Bernstein, who asks Hemingway to settle a disagreement between him and his scoutmaster. Bernstein writes, in part: Dear Mr. Hemingway. I am writing to you, to ask you to be a judge between me and a friend of mine. We have had an argument about The Old Man and the Sea, and were not able to come to any conclusion. I am a member of the Scout movement in Israel... The two main points which [my scoutmaster] emphasizes are socialism and natural life. My scoutmaster is quite literary and he talked about "The Old Man and the Sea as an example of a struggle against nature." He wanted to show the struggle of the idealized Old Man as a symbol of an ideal struggle. He then concluded that the ideal man, and the ideal struggle, are to be found only when fighting against natural forces. To this point I objected. I did not agree with him that the fish symbolizes merely a natural force. I said that the fish represents anything which man fights against, no matter where it is. The main point is not the thing one fights against but the struggle itself, and there-fore it is not important if it is against nature, or anything else. We argued and argued, and at last came to a point at which we both had said all that we had to say, and we were both still unmoved. Therefore I have decided to ask you, as a dependable source, to decide who, if any of us, is right. I realize how busy you are, but would be grateful if you could take the time to answer this letter... To which Hemingway responds: Dear Mr. Bernstein: About the Old Man and the Sea you are correct. The scoutmaster has a point though because that is what it seems. But it goes far beyond that and means the fight as a fight. Thank you for writing. Your friend Ernest Hemingway [signed] Note: Bernstein's letter, as well as the original envelope Hemingway addressed to Berstein (postmarked "Habana, Cuba") are included. One 8.5x11 in. sheet on Hemingway's onion-skin "Finca Vigia" letterhead. San Francisco de Paula, Cuba: April 19, 1959. Regular mailing folds, otherwise fine. WITH: Tsur Bernstein's original letter and the original envelope addressed and sent by Hemingway. Housed in custom folder. Hemingway letters commenting on the meaning of his own work are EXTREMELY RARE.

      1959. Gallimard, Paris 1959, 12x19cm, broché. - Gallimard, Paris 1959, 12x19cm, broché. - Edizione originale della riduzione teatrale fondata da Albert Camus, una delle copie del servizio stampa. Precious autografo firmato da Albert Camus al suo caro amico Andre Belamich ... [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale de l'adaptation théâtrale établie par Albert Camus, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Reliure en demi maroquin bordeaux, dos lisse, plats de papier marbré, couvertures et dos conservés, tête dorée, reliure signée de Devauchelle. Précieux envoi autographe signé d'Albert Camus à son proche ami André Belamich. Belamich rencontre Camus en 1932 sur les bancs du cours de philosophie de Jean Grenier au lycée Bugeaud d'Alger, la fameuse « Khâgne africaine ». Après avoir participé ensemble à l'aventure du Parti Communiste Algérien, Camus et Belamich forment avec d'autres penseurs et artistes ce  que l'on nomme aujourd'hui "l'Ecole d'Alger" réunissant autour de l'éditeur et libraire Edmond Charlot une génération d'esprits progressistes dont Claude de Fréminville, Max-Pol Fouchet, René-Jean Clot, emmanuel Roblès et Gabriel Audisio. Après plusieurs traductions pour Charlot de Jane Austin et David Lawrence, Belamich devient surtout, à l'initiative et avec le soutien de Camus, le principal traducteur de Garcia Lorca et l'instigateur de sa diffusion en France. L'indéfectible amitié qui l'unit à Camus jusqu'à sa mort - il est à ses côtés lors de la remise de son Prix Nobel - font de lui un des principaux témoins de la vie de l'écrivain comme l'attestent ses contributions aux biographies de Herbert R. Lottman et de Olivier Todd. Emouvant et précieux envoi à cet ami des premières heures algériennes qui ont construit l'humanisme de Camus et auxquelles il consacra son dernier roman inachevé : « Le premier homme ».

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Original 1959 LP (Columbia WS316) of the great German actress and singer performing in Rio de Janeiro, boldly signed and inscribed in red pen on the cover to Nat King Cole: "To Nat because he is responsible for this - with all my love, respect and admiration, Marlene." Wear to edges of cover back and front, record seemingly in good condition though untested, else fine. <br style="">Dietrich considered this to be "one of my best albums" (Marlene, by Marlene Dietrich, p. 239), and it was Cole who had in fact advised her to tour in South America. In a promotional interview for the record, Dietrich recounted: "Nat King Cole came to see my act in Vegas, and he said that I was good. Well, I was very excited about that because if he said that, then it meant something. And he said he had just come back from South America, and he really pushed me into it. He's one of the kindest men I know." She recalled of the performance: "The Brazilians started to throw flowers... they came flying so beautifully that I thought, oh this is what they do down there. And the stage was so covered with flowers that I couldn't do the repeat of the finale... And then I heard later they don't usually do that. They only did that for Edith Piaf." [See Dietrich's interview:]<br style="">A true piece of entertainment history, from the collection of Maria Cole, widow of Nat King Cole.<br style=""><br>
