      New York: Horizon Press, 1959. First edition. Very good or better in a very good unclipped dust jacket, with the jacket showing light to moderate edgewear, chipping, particularly to the spine at crown. The red titling on the jacket spine faded, as is often the case. This copy signed by the photographer on the front free endpaper. A solid copy of Siskind's first monograph, a Roth title and something of a minor masterpiece. Not a great many signed copies.

        Goodbye, Columbus.

      Houghton Mifflin, Boston 1959 - First edition of the author's first book and winner of the National Book Award. Signed by the author on the title page. Light rubbing to the bottom cloth, else fine in a fine dust jacket without the usual toning to the spine. A very sharp copy, uncommon in this condition and signed. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. "Goodbye Columbus, a Houghton Mifflin Literary Award, is Philip Roth's first book, and an impressive one. There is blood here and vigor, love and hate, irony and compassion . Mr. Roth has written a perceptive, often witty and frequently moving piece of fiction." The novella is accompanied by five short stories that range in tone from the iconoclastic to the astonishingly tender that illuminate the subterranean conflicts between parents and children and friends and neighbors in the American Jewish diaspora. Saul Bellow wrote upon review of Goodbye, Columbus, "Unlike those of us who come howling into the world, blind and bare, Mr. Roth appears with nails, hair, teeth, speaking coherently. He is skilled, witty, energetic and performs like a virtuoso." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      The Institute of Historical Cartography, San Francisco 1959 - folio. two-toned cloth. xiv,264; xiii,281; xiii,260; xix,222; (iv),223-487 pages. First edition, limited to 1000 sets. Wheat, the well-known California historian, undertook this work in an effort to trace the opening of the American West by studying the succession of maps which, beginning in the 1540s, accurately trace the paths of the explorers and the record of the resulting growth of knowledge. He sought out every map, relating to the Transmississippi West before 1861 and selected the most interesting and important. These maps cover the story of Spanish, French and English exploration. In all, 1,302 maps are fully described, with many illustrated in full-page. A chronological calendar of maps, a full index, and a system of marginal references make these volumes easier to use than any other comparable work. This set lacks volume III which covered the period 1846-1854. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Little Disturbances of Man [Inscribed Association Copy]

      Doubleday, Garden City 1959 - The first book, a collection of stories, by a writer who has helped define the role of women and politics in contemporary literature: engaged without being didactic, Paley focuses on both the ordinariness and the wonder of everyday life. Inscribed by Paley to Jean Stafford and A.J. Liebling: "To Jean & Joe -- Grace Paley." A wonderful association copy: Stafford was a Pulitzer Prize-winning author; Liebling, her third husband, was a journalist and sports writer who wrote for The New Yorker. His book on boxing, The Sweet Science, was named by Sports Illustrated in 2002 as the best book on any sport ever written. Offsetting to the endpages; near fine in a very good dust jacket with spotting to the rear panel and rubbing to the folds. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      New York: Farrar Straus Cudahy, (1959). First Edition. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper. SIGNED by Lowell on the front free endpaper below his INSCRIPTION in his typical block-lettering childlike hand: "For Aunt Alice/with love & our many memories/From/Bobby." Above the inscription is the pencil signature of Alice W. ----. We are unable to make out the last name and have not been able to ascertain exactly who Alice was, but in any case this is the only copy of this important book, of which the poet's family is so central a subject, with a family association that we are able to locate. Laid in is a small card that reads "With the Compliments of The Author." There are a few pencil checks and underlines with one interesting ink underlining of the line "when my Uncle and Aunt left their three baby daughters" from "My Last Afternoon with Uncle Devereux Winslow.

        Krapp's Last Tape

      London: Faber & Faber,, 1959. and Embers. Octavo. Original blue wrappers printed in black and red. Housed in a quarter black morocco drop down box. Trace of rub at the tips of the backstrip but in reality a fine copy. First edition, first impression. With the author's signed presentation inscription to one of his closest and longest known friends, "To Tom [McGreevy] with love from Sam, Xmas, 1959". A stunning association. McGreevy and Beckett had known each other since the late 1920s - McGreevy had preceded Beckett at the Ecole Normale Superieure. It was McGreevy who introduced Beckett to Joyce with a compelling recommendation. In 1936 the elder man played a patient and pivotal role in the complex final development of Beckett's prose masterpiece and my candidate for novel of the century, Murphy. Beckett signed as many books as people had the gall to put in front of him. He was equally generous with casual associates and copies particularly of lesser works bearing his writing abound. What are rare however are the true association copies. Especially in the more important works. The great and meaningful ones. Ones inscribed at publication. Ones in short like this.
