        DANNY THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD

      Original Artwork. 1975 - The Jill Bennett archive of illustrations for the first edition of Roald Dahl’s Danny The Champion of The World. Including correspondence between the author, artist and the publishers Jonathan Cape, Alfred A. Knopf and Penguin (Puffin) Books. The illustrations begin with the three fine pencil character studies Jill Bennett sent to Dahl (who forwards them to his publisher) and includes the full colour dustjacket artwork and the 71 original pen and ink drawings (on 66 sheets) used to illustrate the story. Also present is the original photograph (believed to be Roald Dahl as a baby) used at the beginning of chapter one, and the "Sparky" lettering used at the conclusion of the final page. Correspondence includes two autograph letters from Roald Dahl to Jill Bennett, one confirming receipt of the trial drawings, the other confirming the commission and forwarding comments from Knopf’s "wizz-kid editor" Bob Gottlieb; two typed letters from Alfred Knopf to Roald Dahl, one returning Jill Bennett's illustrations, the other giving layout measurements and deadlines for the jacket illustration; three typed letters from Kaye Webb at Penguin to Jill, the first sending the manuscript of 'Roald's new book', the second asking for an alternative illustration to the photograph due to concerns about the quality of reproduction and the last enclosing two copies of Danny 'in its Puffin coat'; three typed letters from Robert (Bob) Gottlieb at Alfred Knopf to Jill confirming receipt of the jacket artwork 'which has been hailed a triumph', another enthusing about the Danny pictures and advising that 'our half of your payment was sent out to you some days ago. And I have written strongly to Tom Maschler, urging him to pay his share at once.'; two typed letters from Tom Maschler at Jonathan Cape to Jill, the first enclosing a cheque in payment 'I am delighted with the result and I hope the great British reading public will be equally delighted!', the other forwarding a couple of copies of the Cape first edition and apologising for the delay in doing so; an autograph copy in Jill's hand of a letter from Bob Gottlieb to Roald Dahl approving the trial drawings and setting out the deadlines, illustration requirements and fee amount, and a standard letter from Random House enclosing early reviews of the book. All the above is housed and beautifully presented in two purpose made quarter black morocco solander cases. The publication of Danny The Champion of the World marked a notable turning point for Roald Dahl and his books. Having been published in the UK by George Allen and Unwin, a muddle occurred over the contract for Danny, provoking Dahl to investigate alternative publishers, and, impressed by Tom Maschler's energy, he transferred to Jonathan Cape. For the first time both the UK and US editions were to have the same illustrations. Jill Bennett had just completed the illustrations for the first paperback edition of Fantastic Mr. Fox for Puffin Books, and, delighted with the result, Kaye Webb at Puffin sent her the manuscript for Roald Dahl's new book Danny The Champion of The World. The correspondence retained in the archive clearly shows that all three publishing houses worked together in order to bring the book to print and even though the Puffin edition would be the last to publish, it was Kaye Webb who, with the obvious approval of Roald Dahl, was instrumental in bringing Jill Bennett to the project. In chapter two of Danny we meet for the first time a character who would become one of Dahl's most famous and best loved creations: The BFG. Jill's illustration of the Big Friendly Giant who, "three times as tall as an ordinary man," with "hands as big as wheelbarrows," appears on page 20 of the Jonathan Cape first edition. Dahl's own manuscripts, notebooks and correspondence, including those for Danny, are held at the Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire. Manuscript material pertaining to any of his major books is exceedingly rare. To h [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Diaries. [Complete set of first editions in dustwrappers; first volume SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR].. THE CELEBRATED DIARIES COMPLETE IN DUSTWRAPPERS; FIRST VOLUME SIGNED BY AUTHOR

      [Chatto & Windus, Faber, Murray,, 1975-2005]. 12 vols., 8vo., First Editions, with portrait frontispieces, the first three volumes with pictorial endpapers; cloth, gilt backs, a near fine set in dustwrapper. With their titles borrowed cheekily from Coleridge's 'Kubla Khan', Lees-Milne's diaries are widely recognised as one of the foremost continuous chronicles of England in the twentieth century. The twelve volumes cover the years 1942 to 1997, terminating only shortly before his death. The series as a whole passed through three publishers, the first three volumes by Chatto & Windus, the fourth by Faber (with characteristically non-uniform dustwrapper) and subsequent volumes (unsurprisingly) by John Murray. From 2001 onwards the diaries are edited by Michael Bloch. The series comprises 'Ancestral Voices. [Diaries 1942-1943]' (1975); 'Prophesying Peace: [Diaries 1944-1945]' (1977); 'Caves of Ice. [Diaries 1946-1947]' (1983); 'Midway on the Waves. [Diaries 1948-49]' (1985); 'A Mingled Measure. Diaries 1953-1972' (1994); 'Ancient as the Hills. Diaries 1973-1974' (1997); 'Through Wood and Dale. Diaries 1975-1978' (1998); 'Deep Romantic Chasm. Dairies 1979-1981' (2000); 'Holy Dread. Diaries 1982-1984' (2001); 'Beneath a Waning Moon. Diaries 1985-1987' (2003); 'Ceaseless Turnoil.

        Chevengur].

      YMCA Press Paris 1975 - 8vo. 375pp. Original wrappers; light rubbing to exteriors, spine a little slanted, unobtrusive name to front free endpaper. A fine copy of the first edition - made to smuggle into the USSR. Platonov's Chevengur tells of a disastrous attempt to bring about Communism in a small town in central Russia. Originally written in the late 1920s, it was not published in Russia until 1988. This version is printed on fine India paper for ease of smuggling into the Soviet Union - there was also another edition printed at the same time on regular paper. Platonov's extraordinary use of words, reflecting both his own inventiveness and the corruption of linguistic meaning in the Soviet Union, unsettles the reader, layering the text with multiple meanings. This, coupled with Platonov's authenticity of voice gives a spiritual profundity to the novel that stretches far beyond its immediate plot lines. For so many years lost amidst the onslaught of official literature, Platonov's reputation has grown exponentially since the fall of the Soviet Union. Once called 'scum' by Stalin, he has since been described by the translator Robert Chandler as the greatest Russian prose stylist of the twentieth century. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Octavo (21cm); hunter green cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; dustjacket; [6], 167, [3]pp. Trivial wear to spine ends, else Fine in a Very Good+ dustjacket, price-clipped, with rubbing to rear panel, a few small nicks and tears, and a shallow chip and scrape at crown. Scarce hardcover issue of Callenbach's self-published first novel, and ecological utopia now referred to as "the novel that predicted Portland." "Callenbach could not find a publisher for his book in 1974, and was told that it was neither a novel or a tract. "Somebody said the ecology trend was over," he says. "I was on the point of burning it." But he persevered, collecting small checks from friends to pay for 2,500 copies to be printed" (Vaughn, Jacqueline. Environmental Politics: Domestic and Global Dimensions, p.316). Callenbach presents a vision of the future, 19 years after the northwestern U.S. has seceded, as viewed by an American reporter visiting and relaying his observations. "Appropriate technology, environmental concern, improved relationships, concern for the common good, natural recycling, decentralization, willingness to use those machines which are useful but will not harm the environment, cooperation, and careful planning have led to a society not yet utopian, because of external and internal threats, but well on the way" (Lewis, pp.36-38). Reprinted many dozens of times, the first printing - issued simultaneously in wrappers and cloth - is uncommon, particularly in the cloth issue. Sargent, p.161.

        North. Poems. (INSCRIBED UNCORRECTED PROOF COPY, WITH ALs)

      Faber, London 1975 - An uncorrected proof copy of the first edition, inscribed by the author thus: "Jeremy [Hooker] - / We men of the north had a word to say / and we said it then in our own dour way / And we spoke as we thought best . / Seamus / June 1977 in Aberystwyth". 8vo. 73pp. Original publisher's card wrappers, faded at spine, and just a little spotted, chafed and handled, rubbed at spine ends with a single short tear to the base of the lower wrapper. Internally in virtually fine state, with the occasional pencilled tick and margin note in the hand of Jeremy Hooker who reviewed the collection for the periodical 'Poetry Wales'. Twenty-nine poems, the author'’s fourth major collection, and probably his masterpiece. Heaney's inked inscription is an extract from the ballad 'The Man From God-Knows Where' [i.e. Thomas Russell] by Florence Mary Wilson, included in her 1918 collection 'The Coming of the Earls'. Laid-in are two hand-written letters and one typed signed card from Heaney to poet and critic Jeremy Hooker. The first letter is dated January 1975 and thanks Hooker for forwarding a copy of his verse collection 'Soliloquies' ['of a Chalk Giant'] and goes on to make several direct comparisons between that collection and his own forthcoming collection 'North' ("The poems cannot help but come through to me, as you will see when 'North' appears in the summer. There are "Bone Dreams' . including "a chalk giant" in one line - and 'Trial Pieces' from Dublin, which could be "found objects". It's great to be tunnelling and find that you're connecting with another digger"). The second letter is undated but written in circa autumn 1981 on Harvard University headed notepaper and sees Heaney regretfully declining an invitation to speak at a verse and landscape conference, proffering time constraints and existing commitments before speaking briefly about the good things he has heard about Hooker's recent verse collection. The final correspondence, typed on the author's headed card, dated August 1991 and signed 'Seamus', again regretfully declines a number of professional invitations before making brief mention of the forthcoming Radio 3 interview the two have scheduled. All three letters remain within their original mailing envelopes. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
