        [ORIGINAL CORRECTED MANUSCRIPT AND CORRECTED TYPESCRIPT FOR THE WESTERN SHORT STORY, "THIRTY NINE DAYS TO GLORY"]

      [N.p., likely Los Angeles, 1959. [48],[2],48,10pp. largely rectos only. Contemporary glazed cloth boards, gilt. Minor wear at spine ends and corners, some rubbing. Very good. The original manuscript with numerous added items, presented by author James Warner Bellah to his friend, Charles Benton. James Warner Bellah was a veteran of both World War I and World War II, and a popular western author during the 1930s through the 1950s. He wrote numerous books and stories centering on cavalry and Indians, largely pulp fiction published in periodicals and paperbacks, and occasionally serialized in more respectable outlets such as the Saturday The present work is comprised of Bellah's handwritten manuscript (with numerous holographic corrections, emendations, and paste-overs), the typescript (with a few holographic corrections), and the published version of the short story (extracted from the magazine) bound together in that order. The recipient, Charles Benton presumably bound the manuscript, typescript, and magazine text together at a later date. The story is titled "Thirty Nine Days to Glory" and concerns the "real story of Custer's Last Fight" according to the subtitle added to the final printed version, which appeared in the September 1959 issue of HOLIDAY magazine. Bellah presented each item to Benton separately, each time including a presentation inscription; the inscription on the manuscript is dated Aug. 24, 1957, the others undated. Bellah included a signed note (also bound in) when he transmitted the manuscript to Benton that carries some importance for Bellah scholars, as he writes: "This is only one of two original manuscripts of mine that I have not burned as a matter of routine after they were typed. The other is that of 'The Valiant Virginians' which was requested by and is now on permanent exhibit at the Columbia University Library in New York. Who knows - you may ultimately have a fortune." An excellent literary item for the western collector, and the only obtainable Bellah manuscript in the world. EVENING POST. Several of Bellah's stories were adapted to film, including three by director John Ford: FORT APACHE, SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON, and RIO GRANDE. Bellah also co-wrote the screenplays for THE SEA CHASE and THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, and wrote for television throughout the 1950s and '60s.

        The Birthday Party

      Encore Publishing Co., London 1959 - First edition. A trifle rubbed, still fine in wrappers. The uncommon true first edition of Pinter's first play. Inscribed by him to his first wife Vivien Merchant: "Dec. 59 To Vivien, Love D." The "D." is for David. Pinter, who was also an actor, used the stage name David Baron and almost all his early material inscribed to Merchant is signed thus. Neither this edition, nor the first trade edition published by Methuen in England contained a printed dedication. However, the first American edition, *The Birthday Party & The Room: Two Plays*, which was the first edition to contain a printed dedication, was dedicated to Merchant. Thus, to our lights, this could with fairness be considered the dedication copy of the Nobel laureate's first book -- it is certainly as close to one as could otherwise exist. An exceptional association copy of a very uncommon book. Housed in custom full cloth clamshell box. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Cabinet photograph of Charles Darwin circa 1854 by Maull and Polyblank

      London, 1959. Darwin, Charles (1809-82). Cabinet-size portrait photograph by Maull & Polyblank. [London, ca. 1854]. 165 x 148 mm. Archivally framed (frame measures 363 x 308 mm.). Tiny areas of loss at left margin, but fine otherwise. Rare portrait by the noted Victorian photography firm of Maull & Polyblank, showing Darwin in middle age, seated and facing left, with his right hand on a table. This portrait was used as the frontispiece to Francis Darwin’s Life and Letters of Charles Darwin (1884), with a caption incorrectly identifying the photographers as Maull & Fox; the firm of Maull & Fox, a successor to Maull & Polyblank, was not established until 1879. During the past 55 or so years we have seen one example each of two different original photographs of Darwin on the market that were taken around the time of first publication of On the Origin of Species (1859). This is the only example of this famous portrait of Darwin that we have seen on the market during the past 55 years.

        My Philosophical Development. [Beautifully Signed by Bertrand Russell]. [With chapters on Principia Mathematica and an Appendix with an essay by Alan Wood: "Russell's Philosophy - a Study of its Development"].

      George Allen & Unwin, London 1959 - First Edition. London, George Allen & Unwin, 1959. 16cm x 24cm 279 pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket. Some mild signs of foxing. Otherwise in very good condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Very scarce book with the original signature of Bertrand Russell, one of the founders of analytic philosophy. Highly Collectable. Includes the following chapters: My Present Views of the World / Excursion into Idealism / Logical Technique in Mathematics / Principia Mathematica: Philosophical Aspects / Principia Mathematica: Mathematical Aspects / The Impact of Wittgenstein / Theory of Knowledge / The Retreat from Pythagoras / etc. Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell (18 May 1872 – 2 February 1970) was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic, political activist and Nobel laureate. At various points in his life he considered himself a liberal, a socialist, and a pacifist, but he also admitted that he had "never been any of these things, in any profound sense". He was born in Monmouthshire into one of the most prominent aristocratic families in the United Kingdom. In the early 20th century, Russell led the British "revolt against idealism". He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy along with his predecessor Gottlob Frege, colleague G. E. Moore, and his protégé Ludwig Wittgenstein. He is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians. With A. N. Whitehead he wrote Principia Mathematica, an attempt to create a logical basis for mathematics. His philosophical essay "On Denoting" has been considered a "paradigm of philosophy". His work has had a considerable influence on logic, mathematics, set theory, linguistics, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science (see type theory and type system), and philosophy, especially the philosophy of language, epistemology, and metaphysics. Russell was a prominent anti-war activist; he championed anti-imperialism and went to prison for his pacifism during World War I. Later, he campaigned against Adolf Hitler, then criticised Stalinist totalitarianism, attacked the involvement of the United States in the Vietnam War, and was an outspoken proponent of nuclear disarmament. In 1950 Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought" (Wikipedia) Sprache: English Some mild signs of foxing. Otherwise in very good condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Very scarce book with the original signature of Bertrand Russell, one of the founders of analytic philosophy.
