         The Sea at Dauphin, in: Caribbean Plays. Volume One. Selected and Edited by Errol Hill, with a foreword by Philip Sherlock.

      [Mona, Jamaica:] University College of the West Indies, 1958 - Octavo. Original white wrappers printed in red and black. Wrappers rubbed, tanned, and spotted, light dampstain to edges of text block slightly affecting margins of contents. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. This rare collection includes the first printing of the early Derek Walcott play The Sea at Dauphin, which was first staged in Mona, Jamaica, in 1954 and was "Walcott's most fully realized St Lucian play thus far in his career. It employs local registers throughout, blending Francophone patois elements with anglophone Creole, and this immersion in everyday St Lucian speech is complimented by a similar commitment to the local world in the use of a beach setting, which allows the sea to function as a major protagonist in the action" (Thieme, Derek Walcott, p. 52).

         Woina i mir. Moscow, gos. muzykal'noe izd-vo, 1958.

      1958. Large 4to. 459, (1) pp. 289, (3) pp. 430, (2) pp. With a printed portrait frontispiece. Original cloth with giltstamped titles to cover and spine. [Includes:] Sergei Prokofiev, composer (1891-1953). Autograph musical quotation signed. No place, 1931. One bar from "The Love for Three Oranges" (op. 33). 130 x 90 mm. First edition of the score for "War and Peace" (op. 91; after Tolstoy's novel), published posthumously in 1000 copies. The present copy includes an additional autograph musical quotation by the composer. The libretto, also printed here, was written by Prokofiev himself with his second wife, Mira Mendelson. The opera, written in 1941 and extensively revised between 1946 and 1952, accompanied the composer throughout the last twelve years of his life: "The outbreak of the war gave impetus to a project Prokofiev had sketched out in spring 1941, for an opera based on 'War and Peace'. His initial plan for a small-scale, intimate opera which would highlight the personal dramas in the novel was expanded, by the war aspects in particular, and [...] in August 1941 he began the music [...] The following April, he finished 'War and Peace' [...] He sent the score of the opera to Moscow for approval, and in the meantime began its orchestration [which he completed] in March 1943 [...] Following the advice of the Committee on the Arts in Moscow, Prokofiev had drastically revised the opera in the process; the war scenes had been extended and the patriotic elements strengthened. It was no longer an intimate opera but an epic and heroic work. Prokofiev's incentive in revising the score was the promise of a production of the opera at the Bol'shoy at the end of 1943, for which Eisenstein was to design the sets [...] But, as had happened so often, the performance was first cancelled, then postponed indefinitely. Throughout the rest of his life Prokofiev continually made revisions and additions to 'War and Peace', including the composition of two new scenes, in a series of attempts to secure performances. It was only in 1957, however, after his death, that anything like a complete version of the opera was staged" (New Grove). When the Central Committee accused Prokofiev of "formalist perversions" in 1948, "War and Peace" was among the works to which the Communist Party took particular exception. - Corners insignificantly bumped, otherwise well-preserved. In Russian throughout, issued as part 6 of the works (Sobranie sochinenii), M. 26793a G., M. 26793b G., and M. 26793v G. OCLC 19801829. New Grove XV, 298. MGG X, 1649.

         Senator John Kennedy with his baby daughter Caroline

      Printed later by Clark. Gelatin silver gelatin print. 11 x 14 inches. Fine. Signed and inscribed by Edward Clark. Clark was one of the leading American magazine photographers of the twentieth century. In 1944 he joined Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstaedt, W. Eugene Smith, and Philippe Halsman at LIFE magazine. His photographs soon became among the most famous in America. In 1958 LIFE assigned Clark for a story on Senator Kennedy, considered a likely presidential candidate. When the photographer asked for a view of Kennedy with their four-month-old baby, his wife Jacqueline objected that they would awaken her. Kennedy invited Clark upstairs, with Jackie protesting, but this charming photograph was the result. Jackie requested 75 copies "of that marvelous picture" to give to family and friends. After Kennedy became president in 1961, the delightful photograph was displayed in the Oval Office.

         [Original Art]: Twenty-One Original Drawings for "The Instructor" magazine

      1958. Near Fine. Twenty-one original cartoons. Each is on artist board and measures 11" x 14". Condition is general near fine, a few are age-toned. All but one are finished cartoons; the other is a detailed sketch. Most of the drawings have a page from The Instructor magazine affixed to the verso, showing the published cartoon, with dates ranging from 1952-1958; a few do not, but it seems likely they were published there as well, with the exception of the single sketch. Each of the humorous cartoons feature grammar school children doing cute or silly things. For instance, one shows a mother registering her small child, who is wearing a baseball catcher's mask, in school, with the caption: "No, he doesn't play baseball, he bites." The Instructor was a long-running magazine aimed at primary school teachers, and the pages on the verso advertise schools, continuing education, and teacher's supplies. A small but charming collection of easy-going humor aimed at teachers dealing with the first wave of baby-boomers.

        THE CIVIL WAR: A NARRATIVE. FORT SUMTER TO PERRYVILLE. FREDERICKSBURG TO MERIDIAN. RED RIVER TO APPOMATTOX

      New York: Random House, 1958, 1963, 1974. FIRST EDITIONS. Second Printing of vol. I.. This is a pleasing set of Foote's popular history of the Civil War, an imminently readable account that provoked criticism from academic historians but admiration from the literary set. The Washington Post notes that it was "written with a literate flair, a mournful lyricism that underscored the human agony of battle, defeat and victory. Foote (1916-2005) was a largely self-taught historian who compared the task of researching this work to "swallowing a cannonball"--a project designed to be completed by the centennial of the war's end took 20 years to accomplish. The work's novelistic narrative style coupled with Foote's celebrity from his appearance in Ken Burns' "Civil War" have made the books consistent sellers over the years, and academic quibbles about the lack of footnotes have long faded.. 250 x 185 mm. (9 3/4 x 6 1/2"). Three volumes. FIRST EDITIONS. Second Printing of vol. I. Publisher's gray cloth in original pictorial dust jackets.Dust jackets with mild soiling and a few short tears, otherwise fine copies in excellent unrestored jackets.This is a pleasing set of Foote's popular history of the Civil War, an imminently readable account that provoked criticism from academic historians but admiration from the literary set.
