      Jonathan Cape|~| London: Jonathan Cape. (1970). The uncorrected proof copy of the first British edition of his masterwork, a powerful fictional memoir of his experiences during the Allied fire-bombing of Dresden, Germany. On all three major lists of the top books of the 20th century. Creased, stained, abraded; good in wrappers. Scarce: while it is not known how many copies of this proof were prepared, the bibliographers report that only 39 copies of the proof of the American edition were done, and it is reasonable to suppose that there would not have been more copies done in the U.K. than in the U.S. The last copy we handled was in 1998. .

        The Empire Trilogy [Comprising Troubles/The Siege of Krishnapur/The Singapore Grip] First UK Editions 1970-1978

      A set of first edition, first printings published by Jonathan Cape and Weidenfeld and Nicolson between 1970 and 1978. All three novels by Farrell, constituting The Empire Trilogy, are generally considered only to be connected thematically, although the character of Archer, who appears in 'Troubles', makes an appearance in 'The Singapore Grip' also. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time all three first editions have been presented as a set. 'Troubles', published by Jonathan Cape in 1970, is a near fine book with the red top stain still present ? the book is without inscriptions. In a very good+ wrapper which is unclipped (45s/£2.25 as called for) with some wear to the spine ends and rubbing to the edges and corners. Superb dust wrapper illustration by Bill Botten. The Siege of Krishnapur, published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson in 1973 (winner of the Booker Prize of that year) is a very good book with one name to the ffep in a very good (internally reinforced) wrapper which is clipped and has some wear in places as well as a neatly repaired closed tear to the foot of the front panel. The Singapore Grip, published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson in 1978, is a near fine book without inscriptions in a very good+ wrapper which is not price clipped and has some fading to the spine as well as some wear to corners and extremities. Since 'Troubles' was announced as the winner of the Lost Booker Prize of 1970, interest in Farrell?s work has risen dramatically. The trilogy exists as his legacy and displays his superb writing talent so tragically cut short in August 1979.

Statement of "First Edition" on copyright page, with no further printings mentioned. The last page lacks a number line, making this a first printing.

First issue jackets are increasingly hard to come by. The book is in very good condition in a very good dust jacket. The book has clean pages, and sound binding. The gilt lettering to the cloth remains strong. The cloth shows edge wear at the spine and corners. The dust jacket shows chipping and loss to the corners, as well as some edge wear with surface creasing. The jacket shows rubbing at the folds and is a bit fragile..

      1951, 1952, 1970. One typed letter signed, one autograph letter signed, and one autograph postcard signed by the controversial author of Worlds in Collision, Earth in Upheaval, and others. Velikovsky's books suggested that Earth's history was defined more by sudden catastrophes than by slow evolution. They became quite popular during the 1960s, when conventional wisdom of all sorts was being called into question. Each letter is written to a Mr. Tereshchenko: the first refutes two notions in a book by "Beaumont;" the second letter assures the recipient that the second volume of Ages [in Chaos] will be published and is being held up by Velikovsky himself; the third voices intent to send along a 1946 publication and explains that Ages in Chaos grew to a tetralogy. "Beaumont" is William Comyns Beaumont, a British author whom some claimed had advanced the notions put forward by Velikovsky a generation earlier. The first letter is secured across the midpoint fold with tape; very good. The second letter is on airmail paper; folded and opened as designed; else fine. The postcard is fine. Correspondence, or any autograph material, by Velikovsky is quite scarce, especially with significant content. .

        The Coming of the Kings,

      London: Faber & Faber,, 1970. and Other Plays. Octavo. Original blue boards, titles gilt to spine. With the dust jacket. Light fading along top and bottom edge of boards. An excellent copy in the jacket. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author to his friend Nick Gammage on the title page, "Ted Hughes, For Nick, Greetings and best wishes, Ted, 25 Nov. 93". Gammage and Hughes's correspondence began when Gammage, then a 19 year-old student and fan, wrote to the poet for help on his dissertation. For twenty years Hughes used to write exhaustive letters to him, in which he expressed much of his thinking on literature and on life - in Gammage's words, his letters "were like triggers, as though he was using the letters to explore his thinking about his writing. He would often start by saying, 'Your question is impossible to answer', and then for six pages give the most brilliant answers." After the poet's death, Gammage published The Epic Poise: A Celebration of Ted Hughes (Faber 1999). Scarce signed.
