Condition: 50 year-old 36-page complete issue of the NY Times Book review. A very good original issue.
50 year-old complete issue of the NY Times Book Review for 12 January 1964. A very good copy with just a tad of edgewear to paper wrappers. Oversize. Some highlights I find include: Front page (and beyond) essay by the able Frederick C. Crews on the life and works of poet and novelist Conrad Aiken. Page two of this issue is devoted to the passing of novelist, poet and teacher C.S. Lewis and his friendships, especially with J.R.R. Tolkien. Edmund Fuller, in his "Speaking of Books" page offers a poem by Tolkien (see photo #2) and two poems by their mutually admired forerunner, Scottish novelist and poet George MacDonald, along with excerpts from three different works by Lewis. Gene Baro on Elizabeth Bowen's "The Little Girls." Anthony Boucher on John Le Carre's new novel (soon to become a bestseller), "The Spy Who Came In from the Cold." The issue includes a full-page ad for the novel. Numerous other reviews, essays, letters, etc.
