They kept in contact and Meyer received several signed Fleming titles over the next fe years. An important copy. See Gilbert, Jon; Ian Fleming: The Bibliography, pages 47, 90, 666.

While not strictly autobiographical, elements of the tale were born of Knowles's own experiences as a student at Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire. (Notably, the character Brinker is based on novelist Gore Vidal who whose attendance at Exeter overlapped that of Knowles.) The book won the 1961 William Faulkner Foundation Award for notable first novel and provided the basis for the 1972 Larry Peerce film of the same name -- adapted for the screen by John Knowles and Fred Segal (George Segal's brother) -- starring John Heyl, Parker Stevenson, and William Roerick. Published in the year prior to publication of the US first, this UK first edition is the true first edition. The UK dust jacket is quite striking and much nicer than is the duller US dust jacket. This true first edition of the novel is surprisingly uncommon to the market and copies in the dust jacket are scarce. A Very Good to Very Good + copy of the SCARCE TRUE FIRST EDITION OF THIS QUITE NOTABLE NOVEL.

        Max Factor, Hollywood [FROM THE PERSONAL COLLECTION OF MAX FACTOR'S GRAPHIC DESIGNER ROBERT BALKIN]

      Max Factor & Company ND (ca 1959-1960), Hollywood, CA - Large quarto. Unpaginated. Original full leatherette binders, with gold lettering on front cover of binder #1 (Max Factor, Hollywood) and binder #3 (Max Factor & Company). Distributed by Sales Builders, Inc., (distributors of Max Factor Hollywood make-up, in Los Angeles, Hollywood, and Chicago), this rare set of three Max Factor's reference binders contain 93 original silver gelatin prints, 18 color photographs, 15 marketing inserts for dealers (including 3 make-up chart samples, 2 typed letters of instructions for the dealer, 2 "Invitation to Beauty" cards, one complexion analysis sample), and a marketing display. Each silver gelatin print measures appr. 9 6/8 x 8" and is housed in a plastic sleeve. Some have a typed reference number at lower margin. Hollywood’s ‘make up king’, Max Factor (Maksymilian Faktorowicz), is considered the father of modern "make-up". Born in Poland, Max Factor became the beautician / make-up artist to Russia’s Czar Nicholas II and his family. After immigrating with his family to the United States in 1908, he fulfilled his American Dream the very next year by founding Max Factor & Company. Through his innovative ideas, and hard work, Factor built a cosmetic empire. From Hollywood stars to housewives of America, Max Factor’s stylistic genius changed our vision of beauty, and created silver screen gods and goddesses. Indeed, thanks to his art, Marilyn Monroe became a blonde, and Lucille Ball got her famous red hair. Provenance: From the Estate of Max Factor's graphic designer Robert Balkin. Moderate soiling and rubbing along edges of binders. Sleeves and photographs slightly rippled throughout the second part of the second binder, and throughout the third one. Binders in overall good, interior in good+ to very good, photographs and documents in very good condition. About Max Factor & Company: Max Factor is a popular line of cosmetics company from Procter & Gamble. It was founded in 1909 as Max Factor & Company, by Max Factor (Maksymilian Faktorowicz, 1877-1938), a Polish-Jewish cosmetician from Zdu ska Wola, Poland. In its early days, it specialized in movie make-up. Until its 1973 sale for US$500 million, Max Factor & Company was owned by several generations of the family, becoming an international company during that time. Procter & Gamble purchased it in 1991, and it remains today a very popular brand (from Wikipedia) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Doctor Zhivago

      Milan: Feltrinelli,, [1959]. Octavo. Original pale green boards, titles to spine and front board in black. With the dust jacket. Foot of spine slightly worn, small crack to head of spine, board edges slightly faded, contents lightly foxed; an excellent copy in the bright jacket, with short closed tear to head of spine, a few nicks and shallow chips to extremities, and tape repairs to verso. Third edition in Russian of one of the most controversial literary works of the Soviet period. It was published in late April or early May 1959, and is preceded by the Dutch and Michigan editions of September 1958 and January 1959 respectively. Doctor Zhivago was first published in Italian by Feltrinelli in 1957 after Pasternak signed a contract with him on 30 June 1956, granting the Italian publisher the copyright for translation. The history of the book's publication in Russian is somewhat tangled: the first edition in Russian was printed by the Dutch publisher Mouton without Feltrinelli's permission, as part of a covert CIA publishing and propaganda program, and the Michigan edition was to be likewise published without acknowledgement of Feltrinelli's copyright. However, after the legal furore surrounding the publication of the Dutch edition, that decision was reversed, and the Michigan edition was subsequently published with Feltrinelli's consent and collaboration. Feltrinelli intended to publish his edition concurrently with the Michigan publication, but due to printing delays his book was not published until four months after it appeared in the US.

He was the founder of Consolidated foods whose most recognizable products go under the name "Sara Lee". Nathan Cummings was also an art collector of discriminating taste. As he pursued this avocation with more and more interest, many artists of the day including Giacometti, Picasso, Chagall and Braque became his friends and part of his social circle.

        Goldfinger. (a James Bond novel)

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1959., 1959. First Impression, First Issue, Second State., INSCRIBED ASSOCIATION COPY. Publisher's black cloth-effect paper over boards with gilt stamped 'skull'. Pictorial dustwrapper by Richard Chopping. A lightly used copy with one short tear at joint, jacket is near fine and shows extremely well. With presentation inscription to flyleaf; To / Gomer / For one of those / aeroplane trips! / With affection / from / Ian. (underline). Housed in a collector's box. This copy was given to Fleming's employer who gave him the means to write. James Gomer Berry, 1st Viscount Kemsley, self-made newspaper baron and owner of the Sunday Times amongst others, first encountered Fleming (appropriately) over a game of cards before the war and was attracted to the young Fleming's confidence. Fleming, as seen by Henry Hopkinson who was also present at the meeting, was "a little too big for his boots but also full of brilliant comment" (Lycett). After the war, Kemsley was quick to take Fleming under his wing by offering him a job as foreign manager of Kemsley Newspapers, with the absurdly high salary of £4500 a year (plus expenses and guaranteed two months off, which fleming spent writing his novels). Throughout their working relationship, Kemsley regarded Fleming as a favoured son. Although by no means a senior figure in the Kemsley organisation, Fleming was the only person in the building who would call Lord and Lady Kemsley by their first names, and frequently saw them socially. It was often to Fleming that Kemsley would turn to for fundamental advice, and Fleming was always able to persuade Kemsley to go along with his ever more audacious schemes. In reality it was a mutually beneficial relationship: Fleming soon brought the ailing Sunday Times glamour, social cachet and credibility, and in return was given the means and opportunity to pursue his lifestyle with little inconvenience, ultimately leading to the creation of James Bond. Gilbert A7a (1.2). See also Appendix A, pages 634-5.

This was Thesiger's first book and "and, in his opinion, his finest" (ODNB) "During the years that I was in Arabia I never thought that I would write a book about my travels … Seven years after leaving Arabia I showed some photographs I had taken to Graham Watson and he strongly urged me to write a book about the desert. This I refused to do … The following day Graham Watson came to see me again, and this time he brought Mark Longman with him. After much argument the two of them persuaded me to try to write this book. Now that I have finished it I am grateful to them, for the effort to remember every detail has brought back vividly into my mind the Bedu amongst whom I travelled, and the vast empty land across which I rode on camels for ten thousand miles" (Introduction).
