Americana Review. Mother Goose of Boston. Americana Review. Mother Goose of Boston. New York, Americana Review, 1961. 14 x 21cm. 32 pages, with illustrations throughout. Original softcover / pamphlet. Very good condition other than slight discolouration to jacket and staples.

A collection of rhymes associated with Mother Goose, accompanied by drawings reproduced from an 1833 Munroe and Francise publication called "The Only True Mother Goose".

The figure of Mother Goose is the imaginary author of a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes often published as (Old) Mother Goose's Rhymes. According to Eleanor Early, a Boston travel and history writer of the 1930s, and 1940s, the original Mother Goose was a real person who lived in Boston in the 1660s. She was reportedly the second wife of Isaac Goose (alternatively named Vergoose or Vertigoose), who brought to the marriage six children of her own to add to Isaac's ten. After Isaac died, Elizabeth went to live with her eldest daughter, who had married Thomas Fleet, a publisher who lived on Pudding Lane (now Devonshire Street). According to Early, "Mother Goose" used to sing songs and ditties to her grandchildren all day, and other children swarmed to hear them. Finally, her son-in-law gathered her jingles together and printed them.

Amis, I Want It Now. Amis, Kingsley. I Want It Now. London, Panther / Granada Publishing, 1971. 11 x 17.5cm. 204 pages. Original softcover. Very good condition with some signs of external wear. From the library of swiss - american - irish poet Chuck Kruger.

The quickest way to get rich is to marry someone rich, but how do you do this if you aren't yet rich? TV chat-show host Ronnie Appleyard is preoccupied with this question as he pursues wealthy heiress Simona Quick over two continents in the company of braying aristocrats, Greek shipping magnates, American dandies and the dreaded mother-in-law to be. But as he comes closer to his prize other questions present themselves. Is the androgenous Simona really worth it? Why doesn't she like sex? Is it possible to drink all day? With his unerring eye for absurdity and class satire Kingsley Amis shows us what happens when money meets naked ambition. [Penguin Books]

Amis, Lucky Jim. Amis, Kingsley. Lucky Jim. New York, Viking Press, 1958. 12.5 x 19.5cm. 256 pages. Original softcover. Good condition with some signs of external wear, including foxing and discolouration to jacket and some paper loss to spine. Text itself in very good condition. From the library of swiss - american - irish poet Chuck Kruger. [Compass Books, No. C35].

Kingsley Amis's witty campus novel, Lucky Jim is a comedy that skewers the hypocrisies and vanities of 1950s academic life. Jim Dixon has accidentally fallen into a job at one of Britain's new red brick universities. A moderately successful future in the History Department beckons - as long as Jim can stave off the unwelcome advances of fellow lecturer Margaret, survive a madrigal-singing weekend at Professor Welch's, deliver a lecture on 'Merrie England' and resist Christine, the hopelessly desirable girlfriend of Welch's awful son Bertrand. Inspired by Amis's friend, the poet Philip Larkin, Jim Dixon is a timeless comic character, adrift in a hopelessly gauche and pretentious world. [Penguin Books]
