        Alan M. Turing

      Cambridge: W. Heffer & Sons, Ltd., , 1959. Octavo. Original pale grey boards lettered in green in spine and upper board. Portrait frontispiece and 6 other plates. Small bruise to the lower edge of the upper board, slightly crumpled head and tail of the spine, else a very good copy. First edition. Uncommon biography, or memorial volume, of the great computer science pioneer, written by his mother; apparently issued in an edition of as little as 500 copies. Mrs. Turing maintains that her son's death was an accident, the result of careless handling of chemicals when preparing "non-poisonous weed-killer, and sink-cleaner" at home. Despite this probably emotionally necessary special pleading, this is an interesting work which strives to establish Turing's credentials without reference to his then still-classified war work.

        Advise and Consent - FIRST US & WORLD PRINTING

      Doubleday New York 1959 - A unique and highly individual FINE BINDING first impression of the US world first hardback edition of the author's first novel. The Pulitzer winner is offered in an exceptionally beautiful one-off special binding, and it merits a careful description. The text block is the first impression, which has been given a perfect gilt top. The sheets are from the US first edition, rebound between very firm boards which are part covered in a blue grey cloth, and the corners, the spine, and a third of the front and back are in a smooth grain substantial leather, in a matching blue grey. The spine has five raised hubs and five gilded heraldic eagles. The title is gilded upon a black grained leather, which has been most skilfully integrated into the spine. On the front lower corner the initials 'R. K.' have been stamped and gilded. Unusually, the first edition dust jacket has been securely bound in at the back of the book. Even the jacket's flaps are included, and the price is printed with a pencil adjustment beside it. The endpapers are hand marbled. The text of this fine novel is thus presented in a secure and sturdy format, which befits what is arguably the most brilliant post war novel about American politics. This superb example of a one-off library binding is built to last. Faults? Apart from evidence of a degree of gentle usage, and taking into account the age of the book, I would rate this Fine. But there is a very slight pink speckle, away from the text, on page 13, which is the first page of the novel. However, this does not detract from the sumptuous overall impression this highly collectable copy presents. Anyone wishing for a permanent and very aesthetic copy of this superb Pulitzer Prize winning novel need search no further. It is stunning. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Getypte brief aan 'Lieve Jongens [= Jan Wolkers en Annemarie Nauta]'.

      27,4 x 20,9 cm. Op briefpapier van 'Tirade'. Eén blad. Recto en verso. Gesigneerd 'Gerard' en gedateerd 'Amsterdam, 22 oktober 1959'. 71 regels tekst. Met een originele envelop [poststempel: '15 VII 1959'. Zie de noot].* Fabuleus verslag van een mislukte ontmoeting, naar aanleiding van het lenen van een leunstoel. 'Ik moest toch in de buurt zijn en ben met mijn zieke lichaam helemaal door de stad gelopen met de stoel maar later dacht ik dat jullie vast kwaad moeten zijn geweest want vermoedelijk zijn jullie door mijn bonzen gestoord in de geslachtsdaad, dat moet haast wel, want het was er volstrekt het weer voor'. Vervolgens uitgebreid over eerder die middag aangeschafte onderdelen ('1 verloopstukje, 1 T-stukje, 1 slangkop, 1 3/8 nippel, 1 kraanplaat') voor een aan te leggen waterleiding. Toen om half vier 's middags bleek dat Wolkers niet thuis was, heeft Reve de stoel afgegeven aan de voordeur van een winkel, 'uit vrees dat hij door de vuilnisman plotseling meegenomen zou worden'. Tevens over de schoonheid van Maria: 'Er ontbreekt wel iets, maar ze is verblindend mooi. Waarschijnlijk is ze te efficiënt en te beheerst, en maakt ze een evenwichtige indruk terwijl het een ziedende pot waanzin is [...] Annemarie is veel meer een echte vrouw en heeft veel meer charme - het is net wat je hebben wilt'. Voorts uitvoerig over een bezoek aan Elseviers Weekblad: 'Men liet mij kennis maken met Bantzinger, ook zijn gepoetste en gelikte joker [...] Ik legde uit, althans probeerde aan de half kale Mr. J.H.M.G. Barkey Wolf uit te leggen, dat de dood eigenlijk het enige belangrijke onderwerp in de literatuur is [...] de bereisde Bantzinger begon toen over stierengevechten, die ik zei misselijk te vinden, omdat de uitslag vast stond. Eerlijke vrijwillige tweegevechten tussen mensen zou ik appreciëren, vooral als het beide mooie jongens waren en ik de overwinnaar ten geschenke zou krijgen. (Deze laatste beide voorwaarden verzweeg ik.)' Laatste zin: 'Nu ga ik de brief posten. Ik ben uw broeder in Jezus Christus onzen Verlosser en Zaligmaker'.Vier dagen na deze mislukte ontmoeting troffen de jonge schrijvers elkaar alsnog: op de vierendertigste verjaardag van Wolkers, waarbij de stoel van Reve ongetwijfeld van pas kwam. Gerard Reve en Jan Wolkers leerden elkaar kennen toen Wolkers in februari 1959 het verhaal 'Het Tillenbeest' instuurde voor Tirade. Het eerste schriftelijke contact dateert van 6 juni 1959. Deze geheel ongepubliceerde brief - de vierde of vijfde die Reve aan Wolkers zond - wordt bewaard in de envelop van de tweede brief, gedateerd 15 juli 1959. Zie voor achtergronden: 'Het was een heel knappe jongen, dat moet je niet vergeten. Interview met Jan Wolkers door Diederik van Vleuten'. Pagina 9-21 in: Het volle leven. Herinneringen aan Gerard Reve (Amsterdam 2006).

        When you're asked a Parliamentary question d'you suppose you're given the answer beforehand?

      1959 1959 - Sheet size: 191 × 139 mm. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 5 Nov 1959. Pen and ink and blue pencil crayon on wove paper. On 2 November 1959, Charles Van Doren admitted to cheating on American quiz show Twenty One by being given the answers in advance. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

        Similarity of the structure of DNA from a variety of sources

      1959. <p>Signed by Wilkins and Wilson</p><p>Hamilton, L. D.; Barclay, R. K.; Wilkins, Maurice (1916- ); Brown, G. L.; Wilson, H. R. (1929- ), et al. Similarity of the structure of DNA from a variety of sources. Offprint from J. Biophys. & Biochem. Cytology 5 (1959). 397-404pp. 8 photographic plates. 253 x 175 mm. Original printed wrappers, tiny rust stains on back wrapper. Fine copy, signed by Wilkins and Wilson on the front wrapper. First Separate Edition. The authors showed, by comparing DNA x-ray diffraction patterns from diverse species and tissues, that the patterns were the same; "the presently observable structure of DNA appears, then, to be the same in all cells" (p. 397). The data obtained by the authors&#39; investigations "suggests that DNA cannot exist in significant amounts in forms other than the double-helix" and that "the double helical structure of DNA exists in the cell and is not an artifact" (p. 397). Most of the illustrations show comparisons of DNA x-ray diffraction patterns from different sources.

      London: Encore Publishing Co.. (1959). First. First edition. A trifle rubbed, still fine in wrappers. The very uncommon true first edition of Pinter&#39;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 in England, published by Methuen, 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 fairly be considered the dedication copy of the Nobel laureate&#39;s first book -- it is certainly as close to one as could exist. An exceptional association copy of a very uncommon book. Housed in custom full cloth clamshell box. .

        Lollipop

      The Olympia Press, Paris 1959 - Paris: The Olympia Press, copyrighted 1959, but actually printed (and so stated) in October, 1958, hence - 1958. See scans in that regard. First edition of the "Lollipop" re-issue of "Candy" in response to censor confiscation and burning under that original title. 12mo, green wrappers, 189 pp. See scans for copyright/printing points as noted above; price "Francs 1.200" has been above-stamped with the New Price NF 15" (see scan). Dedication here is "To Master Boon and Master Badj" (see scan), an alteration from the "Candy" dedication, which was "To Mister Hadj and Mister Zoon". Very Good; tape at spine bottom, minor soiling on back cover, very small scale peripheral wear, light dustiness to page edges. See scans. The story of a naive and gorgeous young blond girl - who quickly finds out in exactly what way we men are all, instantly and always, the same - borrows its plot structure from Voltaire's Candide and uses that strangely juxtaposed vehicle to shine a light on all the vagaries of modern western life which beg to be lampooned. Considered by many, then and now, to be a classic of "black (dark) humor". In 2006, Playboy Magazine included Candy on its list of the "25 Sexiest Novels Ever Written". A nice, and rare, copy of one early publishing step en route to the coming-out of this timeless bit of erotic fiction. Please see scans. L50n [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
