        Goldfinger

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1959. A Very Good copy of the book with the spine well cocked, rubbing and fraying to the lower edge of the rear board and staining to the closed text-block on the upper fore-edge. In a Very Good dust jacket that has minor wear at the spine ends and a bit of soiling. But, here's the interesting part, this copy retains both prices on the front flap $2.95 (upper) and $3.00 (lower) and is stamped "Sep 23 1959" on the flap. In addition, "Copy #1" is written on the front end paper in ink. Our suspicion is that this was one of the publisher's file copies. The vast majority of these dust jackets are publisher clipped, usually on the upper flap, retaining the $3.00 price. The unclipped jacket offered here would be the true first state jacket. So few of these jackets remain that is seems likely that only the publisher file copies and a handful of other advanced copies given out before the publication date would have retained both prices. The seventh book in Ian Fleming's internationally acclaimed James Bond series, "Goldfinger" was received more positively than its predecessor, "Dr. No," and was heralded as "a superlative thriller from our foremost literary magician" (New York Herald Tribune). While following Auric Goldfinger, a wealthy investor in the gold trade with ties to the Soviet counterintelligence agency, Bond is pulled into a malicious plot to infiltrate and steal the gold of Fort Knox. His efforts to thwart Goldfinger are assisted by Tilly Masterton, who seeks retribution for her murdered sister, and together they fight Goldfinger and his Korean factotum, Oddjob. In this novel, the Bond character was more fully developed and shown, with symbolic undertones, to represent Saint George, a prominent crusading saint in Catholicism. Fleming used American gold tycoon, Charles W. Engelhard Jr., as the inspiration for his Goldfinger character, one of his best villains. Very Good in Very Good dust jacket.

PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED BY ELIOT TO THE CRITIC T. C. WORSLEY, AND WITH AN ALS LAID-IN. Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To T. C. Worsley Esq with the author's compliments. (See p.7) T. S. Eliot." In the printed thanks from the author on p. 7, Eliot acknowledged "Mr. T. C. Worsley for a hint in a critical notice of the Edinburgh's production which inspired Mr. Martin Browne to propose a small but important excision." Laid-in is an ALS from Eliot, 31 March 1958: "I want to express my appreciation of your exceptionally perceptive and sympathetic notice of my play. Also this is the first time in my experience that a critic has made a point which has led to an alteration improving the play. Martin pointed out to me what could be done by a very simple operation. If as I hope you see the play again when it comes to London, you will see how we have benefited from your criticism." Thomas Cuthbert Worsley (1907-1977) was a British teacher, writer, editor, theatre and television critic. He went to Spain with Stephen Spender during the Spanish Civil War, which he recorded later in his 'Fellow Travellers.' Gallup A70.

        The Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents. Travels and Explorations of the Jesuit Missionaries in New France, 1610 - 1791. The original French, Latin and Italian texts,with English translations and notes, illustrated by portraits, maps and facsimiles.

      New York. Pageant Book Company. 1959. - 8vo, 23cm, facsimile reprint limited to 500 sets, 73 volumes in 36., black cloth, crimson title panels and gilt titles, top edges red, a fine clean set. () Jesuit Relations (Relations des j‚suites), the voluminous annual documents sent from the Canadian mission of the French Jesuits of the Society of Jesus to its Paris office, 1632 - 1673, compiled by missionaries at their stations in New France (America) between 1632 and1673, edited by their Quebec superior, and printed in France by Sebastien Cramoisy. As a result of Cardinal Richelieu's decision to enlist the Jesuits in colonizing French North America, the early history of settlement was systematically and colourfully documented by priests attempting to convert the Indians and also to attract support at home for their project. The journals and letters of Paul Le Jeune, Jerome Lalemant, Jean De Brebeuf and Paul Ragueneau, among others, dramatize tribal warfare in Huronia and the day-to-day life of colonists in Acadia; these are supplemented by relations of Jesuit participation in colonial matters throughout the New World. Invaluable as ethnographic and documentary sources, the Jesuit Relations were avidly and widely read in the 18th century, along with the works of Cartier and Champlain, as exciting travel literature. Published originally in Paris in annual volumes, they were translated and edited by R. G. Thwaites in 73 volumes as The Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents, Travels and Explorations of the Jesuit Missionaries in New France 1610-1791 (1896-1901; limited to 750 sets), reprinted in 1959, presenting annotated parallel versions of his translations and the French, Latin and Italian original texts. See bibliography by J. C. McCoy, Jesuit Relations of Canada, 1632-1673(1937, repr. 1973). They are invaluable as historical sources for French exploration and Indian relations and also as a record of the various Indian tribes of the region before the influence of settlers and missionaries had changed them.

        Goldfinger

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1959. First edition of the seventh novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series. Octavo, original black cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Gerald Micklem, This piece - of homework! from Ian Fleming." Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Jacket design by Richard Chopping. Housed in a custom clamshell box by The Dragonfly Bindery, that reproduces an image of the skull with rose from front panel of the dust jacket. Goldfinger originally bore the title The Richest Man in the World. Based upon American gold tycoon Charles W. Englehard, Fleming named his villain after British architect Erno Goldfinger. When the actual Goldfinger found out his name was being used, he threatened to sue Fleming, and the matter was ultimately settled out of court. A best-seller upon its release, it became the third James Bond film in 1964 starring Sean Connery.
