        Look, I can't collect your bets for you and be wildcat - which do you want?

      , 1959. 1959. Sheet size: 192 × 140 mm. Pen and black ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 19 November 1959, and with pencil reproduction instructions recto. Gently guys the strike culture that had been rather more roughly skewered by the Boulting brothers's comedy I'm All Right Jack, released August 1959. 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.

        Rango : Posse from Hell [large format pre-production TV series script / portfolio]

      [Spartan Productions, 1959]. [Spartan Productions, 1959], 1959. 1st Edition. Pre-production or proposal portfolio for a western TV series entitled 'Rango' featuring the script for a presumed pilot episode 'Posse from Hell', with a selection of proposed storylines for future episodes. Three pages of production credits indicate that this item was published in 1959, by Spartan Productions, with Blake Edwards credited as director. Gordon Oliver is credited in the leading role of Rango. Clair Huffaker is credited as writer, indicating that the script is based on his 1958 novel, 'Posse from Hell'. This novel was eventually adapted into a Universal film in 1961 starring Audie Murphy and directed by Herbert Coleman. Also included is the album cover for the original theme music written by Hank Mancini. Unfortunately the LP is lacking. Hank (Henry) Mancini was involved in a dispute regarding the 1961 film with Universal's music director, Joseph Gershenson, who reused the music scores from This Island Earth (1955) and It Came from Outer Space (1953), rather that the original music. Therefore, it appears that Rango: Posse from Hell was the pilot for a proposed TV series that was eventually adapted into a film produced by Gordon Kay and Edward Muhl for Universal. In the film version Rango's name is changed to Banner Cole. There was also a 1967 Western/Comedy TV series called Rango. Other than the title of the main character, there does not appear to be any link to between these productions, although is is possible some elements may have been adapted. Subjects: Film -- Westerns -- TV series -- Scripts -- 1950s -- 1960s -- Television -- History -- United States. Physical description: Unpaginated. Impressively colour illustrated throughout. 38 x 54cm. .

Hank (Henry) Mancini was involved in a dispute regarding the 1961 film with Universal's music director, Joseph Gershenson, who reused the music scores from This Island Earth (1955) and It Came from Outer Space (1953), rather that the original music. Therefore, it appears that Rango: Posse from Hell was the pilot for a proposed TV series that was eventually adapted into a film produced by Gordon Kay and Edward Muhl for Universal. In the film version Rango's name is changed to Banner Cole. There was also a 1967 Western/Comedy TV series called Rango. Other than the title of the main character, there does not appear to be any link to between these productions, although is is possible some elements may have been adapted. Subjects: Film -- Westerns -- TV series -- Scripts -- 1950s -- 1960s -- Television -- History -- United States. Physical description: Unpaginated. Impressively colour illustrated throughout. 38 x 54cm.

        Signed Songwriter-Publishing Contract

      Detroit 1959 - Considered the most important singer in the transition of rhythm and blues into soul music. Nick-named "Mr. Entertainment" by Dick Clark, Wilson had dozens of hit records from the late 1950's into the early 1970's. At age 39 he suffered a massive heart attack while performing on stage and though revived, due to a lack of oxygen to his brain he was forever in a comatose, vegetative state until his death. Important autographed Songwriter-Publishing contract assigning the song titled "You Better Know It." January 1959, 4to. 3 pages. The contract is between songwriters Jackie Wilson, Norm Henry, and The Pearl Music Corporation, 3947 Woodward Avenue, Detroit Michigan, whereby the songwriters agree to certain percentages offered by the publisher. Within weeks of signing this contract, "You Better Know It" was recorded by Wilson on Brunswick Records and would top the charts at #1, staying on the Hot Billboard 100 list for a staggering 37 weeks. Our research shows that Pearl Music was actually owned by Jackie Wilson, making him one of the earliest Black performers of the Rock-n-Roll era to self write and publish and then record a #1 record. *In 1957 an unknown struggling songwriter - car plant worker named Berry Gordy submitted a song to Jackie Wilson titled "Reet Petite", published by Pearl Music Corp, reaching #67 on the charts. Gordy's next song written for Wilson and assigned to Pearl Music was titled "Lonely Teardrops". Both had previously met in the Detroit housing projects where they grew up and had kept a cordial friendship even after Jackie had entered music. The song became a number one record that summer but royalty differences prevented Gordy from further submitting songs to his friend. This disagreement led Gordy to borrow $800.00 from his family in order to start The Tamia-Motown record labels. Forbes magazine lists Berry Gordy as the first Black billionaire. This appears to be the earliest Jackie Wilson songwriting contract sold. Good signature, very good condition.

Leider, das sehe ich jetzt, kann ich auch im Februar nicht ans Reisen denken. Ich könnte erst gegen den zehnten März kommen, zwischen dem zehnten und dem achtzehnten vielmehr [etc.]. Ich bitte auch, nur in Marburg lesen zu dürfen." 24. März: "Im Grunde war es auch diesmal nichts als ein langes, allzu langes Zögern, ich hätte gerne für Mai zugesagt, aber eine Übersetzung, mit der ich, wie ich gehofft hatte, Mitte April ins reine kommen sollte, bereitet mir Schwierigkeiten, sie will auch den Mai fressen, zumindest ein Stück von ihm, und so kann ich, da der Sommer meinem vierjährigen Buben gehört, vor dem Herbst an keine Lesung denken. Hoffentlich mischt diese (...) Zeit dem Herbst nichts bei, das die Lesung in Marburg verhindern könnte! [etc.]".

        The Audio Cyclopedia / 1st Edition, 1st Printing April 1959 / Hugo Gernback Presentation/Association Copy, Signed, Inscribed and Dated By Author

      Indianapolis: Howard W. Sams & Co., Inc. & The Bobbs Merrill Co., Inc., 1959. Indianapolis: Howard W. Sams & Co., Inc. & The Bobbs Merrill Co., Inc., 1959. First Edition . Cloth. About Very Good/About Very Good. Octavo. Diagrams / Photos / Charts. Indianapolis: Howard W. Sams & Co., Inc. & The Bobbs Merrill Co., Inc., 1959. First Edition and First Printing, April, 1959. Signed, inscribed and dated by the author on the ffep, to Science Fiction great Hugo Gernsback, in the first month after publication, on May 24, 1959. Good plus to about very good, clearly put to substantial use by Gernsback. Soiling to covers, modest spine fade, corners a bit bumped; see scans. Dust jacket is edge tattered but complete, showing the original $ 19.95 price tag - rather dear for the time. See scans. A one-of-a-kind first edition, first printing copy of Tremaine's lauded and still much-sought comprehensive 1,269 page study of audio electronics, inscribed by him to Hugo Gernsback, and signed on May 24th of 1959. The Luxembourg-born Gernsback is best known for his spectacular feel for the publishing of golden age science fiction (most notably through Amazing Stories), and is credited with starting the modern era of sci-fi. The celebrated Sci-fi award, the Hugo, is named after him. Nonetheless, Gernsback started as an electronics businessman, and was successful at that; he was a primary popularizer of amateur radio in the U.S., founding the Wireless Association of America in 1909, and established the radio station WRNY. Though he had tried his hand at science fiction with "Ralph 124C 41+" in 1911, it was in fact through his electronics publications - Modern Electronics, Electrical Experimenter and Science and Invention - that he phased into sci-fi publishing by including stories in those magazines. For this reason, his copy of the Audio Cyclopedia - this one - can be considered to be a piece of both science fiction and elctronics history. A well-used (as one might expect) but still solid copy. Tremaine's inscription reads: "To Hugo Gernsback - whom I have long admired from the early days of the 'Electrical Experimenter' and your predictions of 'Things to Come'. Sincerely, H.M. Tremaine, Hollywood, Cal. May 24-1959" . "Things to Come" is a reference to the famous prognosticative Alexander Korda sci-fi epic of that name from 1936. A very, very singular piece. l-46n

      1959 1959 - Sheet size: 192 × 140 mm. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 19 November 1959, and with pencil reproduction instructions recto. Pen and black ink on wove paper. Gently guys the strike culture that had been rather more roughly skewered by the Boulting brothers's comedy I'm All Right Jack, released August 1959. 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.

        Goodbye, Columbus

      London: Andre Deutsch, 1959. London: Andre Deutsch, 1959. First British edition of the author's first book. Signed by Roth on the title page. Fine in a very good dust jacket.Goodbye, Columbus is the story of Neil Klugman and pretty, spirited Brenda Patimkin, he of poor Newark, she of suburban Short Hills, who meet one summer break and dive into an affair that is as much about social class and suspicion as it is about love. The novella is accompanied by five short stories that range in tone from the iconoclastic to the astonishingly tender and 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.

        Autobiographical Trilogy, comprising] Cider with Rosie; [with] As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning [Signed], [and] A Moment of War

      Hogarth Press / André Deutsch / Viking [through 1991], London 1959 - Three volumes complete, two first impressions and one signed second. 8vo: 280; 252; 178pp. Cider with Rosie (Hogarth Press, 1959): First Issue (suppressed) of the first, and most famous, book in the trilogy, with mention of the piano-works fires on p. 272. Publisher's forest-green cloth, spine stamped in gilt, with drawings by John Ward; illustrated dust jacket priced 18s. Very lightly age-toned, else Fine. As I Walked Out (André Deutsch, 1969): Second Impression, signed by Lee on title page. Publisher's tangerine cloth, spine stamped in gilt, with drawings by Leonard Rosoman; price-clipped illustrated dust jacket. Square, tight and apparently unread, an exemplary example. Moment of War (Viking, 1991): Publisher's black cloth, spine stamped in silver, with unattributed drawings; price-clipped illustrated dust jacket repriced $24.99 top of front flap for the Canadian market. Very lightly faded spine panel on jacket, else Fine, virtually As New. In 1957, the Hogarth Press offered Lee £500 "to give up all other work and get on with" Cider with Rosie, which had been commissioned ten years earlier. The book is Lee's account of his childhood as a "scab-kneed schoolboy" in the Costwold village of Slad, in the period after the First World War, and chronicles the traditional, mainly feudal, village life that disappeared with the advent of the motor car. (The identity of Rosie was revealed years later to be Lee's distant cousin Rosalind Buckland.) Cider with Rosie sold six million copies worldwide, allowing Lee to buy Rose Cottage, "in the heart of the village, six stumbling paces from the pub." "As I Walked out one Midsummer Morning, the trilogy's second installment, was published ten years later. Disastrously, since his diaries were the basis of his work, Lee's irreplaceable volumes for 1935–37 were stolen while he was in Spain with the BBC in 1969. Their loss made the writing of the trilogy's final work more difficult. . . . Ironically, the book was ultimately sharper and more moving because it was less reliant on detail. . . . A Moment of War (1991), his memoir of the period [of the Spanish Civil War], describes his being three times arrested, imprisoned, and on the brink of being shot as a fascist spy, and graphically describes the disorganization, amateurism, and squalid living conditions endured by republican recruits."
