    TALES OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC by MICHENER, James

    New York: The Macmillan Company, 1947. First Edition. Hardcover. The brittleness of the cheap paper, found in every copy we have seen, is much in evidence with a very short tear at the top margin running through nearly every page of the book. The covers also have short tears near the spine at the top and bottom. The upper front corner is bumped, and a darker shade at the very head of the spine indicates that a dustwrapper was present on this book for quite some time. All that is left is the rear flap which is laid in. Good copy only, but a great, early inscription and housed in a Fine box. Michener's first book and winner of the Pulitzer Prize. This copy with a very early INSCRIPTION dated 27 May 1947 SIGNED by the author: "Dear Jim,/The first serious writing I/did came your way. This one/had a better fortune, thanks to the/passing of time and some millions of/acres of the Pacific. It's been a treat knowing you./Jim Michener." We can only speculate who Jim was, but obviously he was of some importance to Michener very early in his career. Housed in a handsome and recent navy blue half morocco clamshell box.

In April 1915, the International Congress of Women convened in the Netherlands, drawing women's rights activists from around the globe. Among those delegates who gathered to discuss women's diplomatic importance to the post-WWI peace process were the two who would become the first American women to win the Nobel Peace Prize: Jane Addams and her protégé Emily Balch. With their co-author Alice Hamilton, Harvard's first female professor, these American representatives published Women at the Hague to present the outcomes of the congress to their national audience. Sophinisba Breckinridge, affectionately known as "Miss Nisba," was another of Addams' protégés. One of the earliest U.S. female lawyers and PhD recipients, she was active in the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom [WILPF]; and she became the first professor to teach a women's studies course. Signing her name "Miss Nisba," she presented this book to Henry McDowell Bullock, descendant of the infamous "Great Compromiser" Henry Clay. An exceptional copy of a rare book with important women's movement associations. Smithsonian Institute First Women in American History. Not in Krichmar.

    The Fixer (Original screenplay for the 1968 film) by Frankenheimer, John (director); Dalton Trumbo (screenwriter); Alan Bates, Dirk Bogarde, Georgia Brown, Hugh Griffith (starring)

    Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1967. Draft script for the 1968 British film. Based on Bernard Malamud's 1966 Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning novel. Set in Czarist Russia, Frankeheimer's adaptation is a brutal realization of Malamud's novel, wherein a poor Jew named Yakov Bok assumes the identity of a Gentile after moving from the country to Kiev, in order to secure a job working for a drunken anti-Semite. When Bok is wrongfully accused of murder, he must go to prison to avoid stigmatizing the entire Jewish community. Alan Bates was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Bok. By 1960, the blacklisted Trumbo (one of the Hollywood Ten) began to receive credit for his work in Hollywood, after serving time in a federal penitentiary for his conviction in the House Un-American Committee hearings to impugn possible Communists in the US. Shot on location in Hungary. Light blue titled wrappers, dated September 7, 1967, with a credit for screenwriter Trumbo. 138 leaves, with least leaf of text numbered 129.

    TALES OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC by MICHENER, James

    New York: The Macmillan Company, 1949. First Edition. Hardcover. Some light spotting to the cloth. Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper, with a great inscription. Tenth printing of Michener's first book, winner of the Pulitzer Prize. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author to the actor who created the role of Capt. George Brackett in the original Rodgers and Hammerstein Broadway musical: "To Martin Wolfson,/In a character that does/not appear in this book, you/catch the precise & wonderful/spirit of what I was trying to/do. I have been deeply impressed/by your art & your sympathetic/understanding. It's been great/fun knowing you & watching your/performances./Your admirer, /James A. Michener." Michener's inscription takes up most of the front endpaper, but just above it is another inscription to Wolfson that we surmise is by the actor William Tabbert who played Lieutenant Joe Cable in the original production and who shared several scenes with Wolfson: "To Martin/In appreciation of his/splendid performance which/added much strength and/reality to the whole production/from his friend/Bill." SOUTH PACIFIC, the musical, won its own Pulitzer Prize, a New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and nine Tony Awards. Its memorable hits include "Some Enchanted Evening," "Bali Ha'I,"There is Nothing Like a Dame," "I'm in Love With a Wonderful Guy," and "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair." It is rare to find copies of this book inscribed by Michener to original cast members of this historic American musical.
