        The Menace From Earth, the publisher's file copy of the first edition, signed by the publisher

      Gnome Press, Hicksville, New York 1959 - This is the publisher’s file copy of the first edition, first printing, a collector-worthy first edition with compelling provenance. The front pastedown is signed by the publisher in three lines: "Gnome Press | File Copy | Martin Greenberg". Martin L. Greenberg (b.1918) served in the U.S. Army during the Second World War and in 1948, along with David A. Kyle, started the Gnome Press. That same year they published Gnome’s first book, The Carnelian Cube, by L. Sprague de Camp and Fletcher Platt. Eighty-six titles were published by the Gnome Press. Financial pressure and the challenge of competing with larger science fiction publishers led Gnome Press to close in 1962. Nonetheless, "In its first five years, Gnome would publish Robert Heinlein’s Sixth Column, The Sands of Mars and Against the Fall of Night by Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot and the three volumes of the Foundation trilogy, Clifford M. Simak’s award-winner City and his Cosmic Engineers, reprints of Robert E. Howard’s Conan stories, and works by L. Ron Hubbard, Jack Williamson, C. L. Moore, A. E. van Vogt, Leigh Brackett, Henry Kuttner, Hal Clement and half a dozen others. That’s Golden Age science fiction in a nutshell." (Steve Carper). Gnome Press published Heinlein’s The Menace from Earth in 1959. This is a collection of eight short stories originally written between 1941 and 1957, including one bearing the volume title. As such, the collection is an iconic distillate of Heinlein’s early career and work, which evolved substantively after the 1959 publication of Starship Troopers and the 1961 publication of Stranger in a Strange Land. This publisher’s file copy of the first edition, first printing is near fine in a very good plus dust jacket. The binding remains square, clean, bright, and tight with sharp corners. The contents are clean with a crisp feel and no spotting or previous ownership marks apart from the publisher's inked signature and file copy designation. Even the untrimmed fore edge and top edge are clean. The only flaw that prevents our grading this copy as truly fine is age-toning. The illustrated dust jacket is unfaded, retaining bright red spine print on both the spine and front cover. We note only fractional chipping at the spine head with scattered spotting, most evident to the jacket spine. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        Collection of Original Drawings and Documents from "Journey to the Center of the Earth"

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A remarkable and important collection of 178 original drawings, designs, and color samples by the Academy Award-nominated art director Franz Bachelin from the 1959 Jules Verne adaptation Journey to the Center of the Earth, together with several original documents relating to the production of the film. The drawings include designs for almost every important location in the film, from set designs for the opening scenes in 1880's Edinburgh (with bagpipers on parade) to action scenes of the whirlpool at the Earth's core, the attack of a winged lizard, and the lost city of Atlantis. 145 drawings are in black ink and graphite on 8.5 x 11" sheets, hole-punched, each labeled with a scene number, and many with other indications; 5 are in colored pencil, 9 x 8." A further 4 larger plans on tracing paper, approx. 22-26 x 9", show Bachelin's meticulous planning of the final sequence of adventure scenes, and the geographical location of the lost city of Atlantis! <br style="">Also with the drawings are 10 small cards, 3 x 5 to 6 x 7", bearing vibrant sample color and texture schemes in marbleized patterns; 13 mimeographed 10 x 5" copies of drawings of the "prehistoric animal fight" showing dinosaurs battling it out in the water; and a lovely small painting of a tree and a sunset on card, 5.5 x 4.5". <br style="">Together with the drawings are several documents from the production of the film, including: a set construction estimate [4 pp.; May 12, 1959]; a large production cross plot showing the complete filming schedule over 52 days [1 p.; June 9, 1959]; a complete list of the crew members (including a duck trainer!) with phone numbers [1 p.; June 15, 1959]; a chart showing the total, labor, and materials costs for each of the elaborate set and location shoots - over $449,000 [2 pp.; December 3, 1959]; a typed copy of the film's credit [1 p.; n.d.]; and a telegram inviting Bachelin to a pre-Academy Awards cocktail party for nominees [1 p.; n.d.].<br style="">The drawings are in fine to very fine condition overall, with only slight toning, a few with slight tears or corner creases; one of the larger tracing paper drawings is in delicate condition with some creasing and tearing due to the paper. The documents are in good to fine condition, some with toning, creases and tears.<br>Overall a superb collection of drawings and materials from this iconic adventure film.<br style="">Journey to the Center of the Earth, a loose adaptation by Charles Brackett from the novel by Jules Verne, was directed by Henry Levin and starred James Mason, Pat Boone and Arlene Dahl. Released in 1959, it was a box office success, pleasing audiences with its fantastical plot, sets, and special effects (a particular feature were iguanas with glued-on fins, playing the part of dimetrodons!) The film was nominated for three Academy Awards for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration (Lyle R. Wheeler, Franz Bachelin, Herman A. Blumenthal, Walter M. Scott, Joseph Kish), Best Effects, Special Effects and Best Sound (Carlton W. Faulkner).

Entire piece measures 20 inches by 26 inches. An attractive and desirable piece, signed by all of the Mercury Seven astronauts. "The first seven American astronauts were an admirable group of individuals chosen to sit at the apex of a pyramid of human effort... They chose to lead by following the opportunity that chance, circumstance, technology and history had prepared for them" (Swenson, Grimwood & Alexander). NASA introduced the seven astronauts in Washington on April 9, 1959. Although the agency viewed Project Mercury's purpose as an experiment to determine whether humans could survive space travel, the seven men immediately became national heroes and were compared by TIME magazine to "Columbus, Magellan, Daniel Boone, and the Wright brothers" (TIME 1959).
