Black cloth covered boards show some edge wear, gilt print on spine somewhat worn but still legible (no fraying apart from one corner), corners bumped, some shelf soil on boards. ; Stated 1st edition, a tight solid book, hinges intact. Deckled fore edges, blindstamped design on front board ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 458 pages; "It Can't Happen Here is a semi-satirical 1935 political novel by American author Sinclair Lewis, and a 1936 play adapted from the novel by Lewis and John C. Moffitt. Published during the rise of fascism in Europe, the novel describes the rise of Berzelius "Buzz" Windrip, a politician who defeats Franklin Delano Roosevelt and is elected President of the United States, after fomenting fear and promising drastic economic and social reforms while promoting a return to patriotism and "traditional" values. After his election, Windrip takes complete control of the government and imposes a plutocratic/totalitarian rule with the help of a ruthless paramilitary force, in the manner of Adolf Hitler and the SS. The novel's plot centers on journalist Doremus Jessup's opposition to the new regime and his subsequent struggle against it as part of a liberal rebellion. Reviewers at the time, and literary critics ever since, have emphasized the connection with Louisiana politician Huey Long, who was preparing to run for president in the 1936 election when he was assassinated in 1935 just prior to the novel's publication." Current events in the US, i.e. Donald Trump and company, have made this book into a must read for anyone concerned about the future of the US.

  • Publisher: Halcyon House.
New York. Halcyon House. 1940. Bound in gilt titled green cloth over boards. Thick 8vo. 5.75" x 5.5 The Third Printing.This copy presents Frost's 4 line poem "Immigrants" inscribed boldly in ink and initialed by Frost on bound-in Front Free Endsheet. Additionally, this copy is inscribed,dated and signed in ink by Frost on bound-in title Page. Illustrated with a photographic Frontis of Robert Frost. Robert Lee Frost (1874 – 1963) was, arguably the most important but,certainly the most popular American poet of the 20th century."Although his work is principally associated with the life and landscape of New England, and though he was a poet of traditional verse forms and metrics who remained steadfastly aloof from the poetic movements and fashions of his time, Frost was anything but a mere regional poet. The author of searching and often dark meditations on universal themes, he was a quintessentially modern poet in his adherence to language as it is actually spoken, in the psychological complexity of his portraits, and in the degree to which his work is infused with layers of ambiguity and irony. About Frost, President John F. Kennedy said, "He has bequeathed his nation a body of imperishable verse from which Americans will forever gain joy and understanding."-poets.orgThe poem which Frost has handwritten in this copy( and also appears as part of the collection on pg.333), "Immigrants", is a lyrical " iambic pentameter quatrain appearing In West-Running Brook(1928), although it first appeared as the fourth stanza of “The Return of the Pilgrims,“ a poem included in George P. Baker's The Pilgrim Spirit (I921). The poem asserts that no ship, whether by “sail or steam,” has gathered more people to America‘s shores than the Mayflower, the ship on which the Pilgrims sailed to America in I620. Frost uses it as a symbol of his optimism and hope for all immigrants who travel to the shores of his immigrant nation. The Mayflower symbolically accompanies all immigrant ships to American shores “in a dream”that was also the dream of its original passengers.The Mayflower joins the ships to create a “convoy”of protection and aid. The dream of the Mayflower's protection may exist in the minds of the immigrants at sea, or in the mind of the poet, who wishes them well. ln either case the journey to America is presented as a magical one that could lead to perhaps the most romantic of all immigrant dreams: the American Dream." Deirdre Fagan - Robert FrostExtremely rare and most desirable, Frost would occasionally inscribe one of his short poems to the endsheet of a book he was signing. Interestingly, he also did this on some of his Christmas cards. These handwritten poems differed from his usual book signings in that he would initial the manuscript poem "RF", whereas when simply inscribing the title page of a book,he would sign his full name. This copy has the distinction of displaying both forms of the Poet's personalization. Light wear to covers. Usual mild sunning to spine. Professionally executed attention to environs of interior front gutter. Toning, three small patches of red ink and a small previous owner' ink signature to Front Free Endsheet- with no interference to inscribed poem. Several spots of foxing and light abrasion to Title Page and Verso (Copyright Page).A Very Good, tight crisp copy of a most Rare and fascinating relic of American Literary History.

A near fine book, with only minor page edge soiling and a trace of partial spine fade, in a Very Good + jacket, showing light perimeter wear. Singular copy, inscribed and presented to Arthur C. Clarke by Greenberg, with provenance of unimpeachable order accompanying the book. An increasingly classic collection of short stories by some of the now-timeless sci-fi names. Willy Ley: "Here is a different type of anthology. This book, taken in its entirety, tells a story: the conquest of space. Moving from man's first attempt to reach the moon to the exploration of the ends of the universe, these stories are among the finest ever published." - Willy Ley. Hailed by critics at the time of its publication as a quantum leap forward in both quality and concept for science fiction anthologies, Martin Greenberg's thematically edited Men Against the Stars is a collection of twelve lengthy stories whose authors read like a Who's Who of Golden Age sci-fi, including Isaac Asimov, Murray Leinster, A.E. Van Vogt, L. Ron Hubbard [Hubbard's "When Shadows Fall" is here], and E.M. Hull. Not a slap-dash aggregation to get to the printer quickly, Greenberg's collection was a thoroughly contemplated and planned project, a selection of the very finest available stories on theme, ranging back as far as 1939. Nicely complimented by a Cartier's funky pure genre period stylization jacket. A sci-fi presentation copy of the highest sort, that of a veteran and astute editor to a future superstar. Arthur C. Clarke's reputation at the time was already becoming established, and Greenberg shows the admiration in his skilled critical eye for Clarke's sci-fi talents in his presentation remark.

A UNIQUE OFFERING THE TWELFTH WORLD SCIENCE FICTION CONVENTION PAPERS. Held in San Francisco in the summer of 1954 with G.O.H. John Campbell, Jr., this was one of the great early gatherings. Included in this massive archive is everything that one might want to know about running a convention: Hotel rates for rooms, banquets, buffet menus, rentals, carpenters, electricians, etc. There are letters from attendees and those who wished to attend but could not; paid invoices from photo shops, printers, etc.; canceled checks (along with some unused ones as well) and check stubs; Radio scripts from local stations and press clippings and pictures from local papers; letters from major Motion Picture Studios answering requests about film availability; SIGNED letters from advertizers (including all the small presses); the entire convention mailing list; black & white photos picturing singularly or in group Ackerman, Anderson, Boucher, Bloch, Campbell, Clifton, Dick, Ellison, Evans, Gold, Mayne, Ley, Moskowitz, Nourse, E.E. Smith, Williamson, Van Vogt, Vampira, et.al. But of course the major importance of this archive has yet to be mentioned. And that's simply the great abundance of SIGNED letters, post-cards and notes from authors and artists. To wit: Anderson, Asimov (3), Blaisdell, Blish, Bond, Bonestell (4), Boucher (3), Bradbury (4), Bretnor, F. Brown, Howard Browne, Budrys, Campbell (5), Clement, Clifton (2), Collier, Conklin, DeCamp, DeFord, Dick, Dickson, Dollens (8), Emshwiller (2), Eshbach (2), Evans, Farmer, Freas (3), Greenberg (2), Gunn, Heinlein, Hunter (5), Kuttner, Ley (5), Moskowitz, Neville, Nolan (3), Nourse, Obler, Orban (3), Palmer, Pratt, Simak, E.E. Smith (2), Tucker, Williamson (3), Wylie, et.al. Finally, also included is a set of audio tapes which were taken at this convention. Now for the first time (depending on your age I guess) you can not only be privy to what went on at this convention, but also hear the actual voices of Anthony Boucher, John W. Campbell, E.E. "DOC"Smith and others too numerous to mention. A unique opportunity to snatch a bit of vintage post-war Science Fiction history. (The tapes, while definitely included in this grouping, may not be immediately available.)

  • Format: Hardcover
  • ISBN: 9781416546023
1st Printing. Signed. 246 pages. Published in 2007. The author's fourteenth novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The wraparound DJ design utilizes the famous photograph of the Twin Towers, still standing tall, surrounded by clouds. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Don DeLillo's "Falling Man". The title alludes to the often-suppressed photograph of the man who, rather than be engulfed in flames, jumped to his death from one of the Twin Towers on 9/11. DeLillo vividly tells the aftermath through what happens to one of the imaginary survivors, Keith Neudecker. He then "rewinds" at the end and takes the reader back inside the Twin Towers as the planes strike the buildings, one of the most stunningly imagined endings about Apocalypse Now/The End ever written. "Through all the terror, fire, and smoke, DeLillo's voice is steady as a metronome, recounting exactly what happens to Keith as he sees friends and co-workers maimed and dead, navigates the stairs, and, ultimately, is saved. Though several post-9/11 novels have been written, not one of them is as compellingly true, faultlessly conceived, and beautifully written as this novel" (Valerie Ryan). And there are at least two major novels, among other homages, memorials, and other artistic gestures thus far on 9/11: Ian McEwan's "Saturday" and Jonathan Safran Foer's "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close", both published in 2005, both fine novels. Still, DeLillo's connection to 9/11 goes way back: To 1977, with "Players", giving his new book a fuller retrospective power than either McEwan or Foer. The prophetic line in "Players" is eerie: "The towers didn't seem permanent. They remained concepts, no less transient for all their bulk than some routine distortion of light" (Don DeLillo). An absolute "must-have" title for Don DeLillo collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Don DeLillo. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. DeLillo made a rare appearance in New York City to launch the book. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: DeLillo seldom does public signings, and limits the number of books he signs when he does. Signed copies of his books are usually available from the publisher, pre-signed on a tipped-in page, which does not have the same collectible value. A rare signed copy thus. Regarded by the literary critic Harold Bloom as one of the canonical writers of the 20th century. Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and the Jerusalem Prize in 1999, the first American writer to be so honored, among numerous other literary prizes. "Underworld" was selected as the second most important work of American fiction of the last 25 years by The New York Times panel of writers, editors, and critics. "Libra" and "White Noise" were included in the Top 20 list. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER DON DELILLO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1416546022.

  • ISBN: 9780674945852
1st Printing. 520 pages. Published in 1996. Volume One of the author's collected essays. One of the greatest literary collections of the 20th century. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only and as part of Harvard University's Complete Works of Walter Benjamin. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Walter Benjamin's "Selected Writings: Volume 1: 1913-1926" in a felicitous English translation. The inaugural volume of the Series, a landmark publication in the history of modern thought and literary criticism. "Against conformism, homogeneity, and gentrification of all life into a new world order, Benjamin made the word his sword. Brings together essays long and short, academic treatises, reviews, fragments, and privately circulated pronouncements. Includes a number of his most important works: 'Two Poems by Friedrich Holderlin', 'Goethe's Elective Affinities', 'The Concept of Criticism In German Romanticism', 'The Task of The Translator', and 'One Way Street'. He is as compelling and insightful when musing on riddles or children's books as he is when dealing with weightier issues such as the philosophy of language, symbolic logic, or epistemology. We meet Benjamin the youthful idealist, the sober moralist, the political theorist, the experimentalist, the translator, and, above all, the virtual king of criticism, with his magisterial exposition of the basic problems of aesthetics" (Publisher's blurb). Walter Benjamin's personal heroism wasn't just some egotistical idea he had about himself. He lived and then died as a hero: He committed suicide on September 26, 1940 at the French-Spanish border while trying to escape the Nazis with a group of fellow Jews. They were all arrested by the Spanish police (Franco was one of Hitler's closest allies). Instead of being sent back to Germany to face certain death, Benjamin shot himself (he was 38 years old).

''Compulsively readable . . . As forcefully as any novel one can think of, this novel conveys the cynicism, the terror, and the appetite for new experiences that have marked recent years" (New Yorker).

It was adapted into the 1978 film Who'll Stop the Rain starring Nick Nolte, from a script that Stone co-wrote.

London: Doubleday, 1999. First British edition. Octavo, original boards. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Signed by Sir Edmund Hillary on the title page. View From the Summit is the life story of a New Zealand country boy who daydreamed of wild adventures; the pioneering climber who was knighted by Queen Elizabeth after scaling the world's tallest peak; and the elder statesman and unlikely diplomat whose groundbreaking program of aid to Nepal continues to this day, paying his debt of worldwide fame to the Himalayan region. "Unavoidably gripping...gives an excellent sense of the constant risk when climbing at high altitude" (Sunday Telegraph).
