      London: Jonathan Cape, 1962 First English edition, first printing. Publisher's bright red cloth, lettered in gilt; in the original first issue green dust jacket designed by Germano Facetti, lettered in black, gray and white. Fine book; unclipped dust jacket, with a hint of rubbing to the spine head, else fine. A bright and attractive copy of the author's best-known novel. Considered one of the greatest novels of the 21st century, Catch-22 is a satirical text that tells the story of United States Air Force Captain John Yossarian during World War II. Heller coined the term "Catch-22," or a paradoxical situation in which a problematic situation's solution is inherently denied by the nature of the problem. In this novel, the Catch-22 is Yossarian's enrollment in the Army; in order to be discharged, a soldier must be proven insane, but, by completing the discharge application, one essentially proves his or her own sanity. Based on Heller's own experience in the Air Corps, Catch-22 combines realistic depictions of war scenes with satirical paradoxes that border on the unreal. As Orville Prescott agrees in his 1961 review for The New York Times, "Catch-22 is realistic in its powerful accounts of bombing missions with men screaming and dying and planes crashing. But most of Mr. Heller's story rises above mere realism and soars into the stratosphere of satire, grotesque exaggeration, fantasy, farce and sheer lunacy.". 1st English Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

      JONATHAN CAPE 1962 - UNCORRECTED PROOF THE SPY WHO LOVED ME FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING BY IAN FLEMING DEFINITION OF AN UNCORRECTED PROOF: In publishing jargon, a proof is the preliminary iteration of a book, intended for a limited audience. Its purpose is to allow for final edits. The proofs can also help to build and maintain buzz about a book before its official release date, generate some early reviews and have potential readers eager to get their hands on the title. A galley proof or uncorrected proof may still have errors or areas open to change. It is generally bound differently than the final product, often only spiral-bound, and missing much of the polish of the eventual published version, opting instead for plain, often coarse paper. Inclusion of proposed publication information (date, price, etc.) can also be included. Usually the proof consists of text only, and is devoid of any art or illustration that may be present in the final published version. If a book is successful and does well upon final publication, or if it goes out-of-print early but develops a fan-base or cult following, an uncorrected proof can become a valuable prize for collectors. Part of the appeal is their scarcity, and the fact that they will sometimes have slightly different text from the final piece. (Beth Carswell, ABE BOOKS) Jonathan Cape, London, 1962 Very good condition in printed green soft wraps. Rubbing to spine and outer edges, with light creasing (obviously well loved and no doubt was passed about for review). However the binding is firm, the end papers and internal pages are clean, with just a few faded scattered stains. The book has no writing, no owner names, and only a few scant soft corner creased pages. Most of the uncorrected proofs were printed up in very small quantities of about 500 pieces. A most unique gift and a scarce addition to a James Bond collection. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

S. and I have checked that all the literals you marked have been corrected in the press proof. I have an idea you said you wanted your proof back and therefore return it herewith...?" Provenance: Aubrey Forshaw, Managing Director of Pan Books, publisher of the James Bond novels in paperback and Ian Fleming?'s expert for technical information concerning James Bond?'s cars. It was in this respect that he was asked by Fleming to read the proof of On Her Majesty?'s Secret Service and correct any errors. ?"The offending back axle passage?" referred to in Michael Howard?'s letter appears on page 23, with Aubrey?'s corrections in pencil to the margins. Further corrections, suggestions and typographical errors appear in the margins elsewhere, all of which are adopted to the first edition text.

En excellent copy in a price-clipped, lightly rubbed jacket with minor chipping to top of front panel and a few small creases and nicks to spine ends. First edition, first impression. Carson, a nature writer and Editor-in-Chief for the Fish & Wildlife service, had long been concerned about the widespread use of DDT and other pesticides, but lack of interest from magazine publishers led her to put aside her idea for expose. When the book finally appeared in 1962, only a year before her death, its great strength was not in presenting new information ?- most of the data she included was already known to the scientific community ?- but in making the information accessible to non-scientists and instilling a sense of fear and urgency in the public. Not only an indictment of DDT, her book challenged the very foundations of post-war modernity and western capitalism, and forced humans to reconsider their relationship to the world around them.
