        … you're annuver - so are you. Tell my muvver, 'tisn't true

      1959. Sheet size: 192 × 140 mm. Pen and black ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 25 July 1959, and with pencil reproduction instructions recto. Vice-President Richard Nixon and Nikita Khrushchev shown as squabbling schoolboys following their ill-tempered "kitchen debate" on the relative abilities of communism and capitalism to deliver consumer durables while touring the US trade exhibition in Moscow. As the BBC reported it; "In the end, Mr Nixon apologised for being a poor host and the two men agreed to thank the exhibit hostess for letting them argue in her kitchen." 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.

        The Same Door: Short Stories [Review Copy]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1959. First Printing. Hardcover. As New/Fine. First Edition (so stated) of the author's first collection of stories—sixteen in number—published one year after his first novel, The Poorhouse Fair. 8vo: [10],242,[4]. Publisher's turquoise quarter-bound cloth, chestnut-brown paper-covered boards, spine and upper cover stamped in silver, top edge stained lime-green; first issue dust jacket, priced $3.75, with reviews for The Poorhouse Fair on back panel. Laid in is Knopf's date-of-publication notice. An exemplary example, virtually pristine, square, tight and unread, silver lettering and top stain undiminished, pages fresh and bright. & These stories appeared originally in the New Yorker in the order in which they appear here. "Ace in the Hole" prefigures Rabbit, Run in having an ex-high school basketball star now married with a child. "Snowing in Greenwich Village" is the first story to feature the Maples, Joan and Richard, whose stories were later collected in Too Far to Go. "Stylistically, [Updike's] early stories were directly influenced by the New Yorker itself, where they primarily appeared. The two writers most associated with the magazine at this time, J. D. Salinger and John Cheever, exerted particular influence on Updike's style and approach. . . . [S]uch early pieces of marital life as “Snowing in Greenwich Village” evoke Cheever's elegant tales of spousal tension and middle-class comfort. At the same time, Updike was every bit his own writer, even early on, looking for deeper inspiration not in his contemporaries but rather in the European Modernists who immediately preceded him, chiefly James Joyce, Marcel Proust, Henry Green and Vladimir Nabokov. Specifically, Updike's lyrical, baroque prose style, as well as his penchant for complex formal design, can be traced directly back to those Modernist masters, all of whom get name-checked in one way or another in the early work."
