The 1968 musical, Zorba followed. (Kazantzakis' fame was later renewed by the 1988 Martin Scorsese film adaptation of Kazantzakis' novel "The Last Temptation of Christ", a book which the Roman Catholic Church added to its list of Prohibited Books & which caused the Greek Orthodox Church to anathematize him in 1955.) Born in Crete while the island remained a part of the Ottoman Empire, Kazantzakis, after spending much of his life abroad, became active in Greek politics, entering the government as a Minister without Portfolio, but soon resigning. Nominated for the 1957 Nobel Prize in Literature, Kazantzakis fell one vote short of Albert Camus who was awarded that year's Prize. This remarkable copy of Nikos Kazantzakis' best-known work has been Inscribed by Seferis, a Greek Diplomat & Ambassador to the UK, & one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, George Seferis won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture", making him the first Greek ever to have received the Prize. The recipient, Rex Warner, his good friend, frequent translator, & fellow author (whose excellent translations of Seferis' works were a major factor in Seferis' winning the Nobel) with Seferis writing out a portion of his own Tribute poetry in Greek. The success of Zorba the Greek in 1964 was the high water mark of Anthony Quinn's career & resulting in nominations for Best Actor including the Oscars, Best Foreign Actor BAFTA Awards & the Golden Globes; Winning the National Board of Review Award for Best Actor.

Item Description: Torchstream Books, London, 1954. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: very good +. First edition. An about Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original dark brown cloth (mildly canted, some pushing at the spine ends and board corners, bare traces of wear, a bit of wrinkling to the first plate, spine label sharp and crisp), in a Very Good + example of the scarce dust jacket which matches the free endpapers and pastedowns (small chips with tears at the spine panel's upper corners, tape repairs to the inside of the jacket, tiny wear at upper panel corner turns to the spine flaps, mild wear and tiny chip to the spine label that does not affect the lettering, portions of some signatures are unopened); copy 298 from a Limited Edition of 975 copies, SIGNED BY T. CLIFTON LONGWORTH on the title page and FURTHER SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS on the front free endpaper to British author Rex Warner, his friend and the translator of some of Seferis' works. The front free endpaper also shows a single line in Greek which is underscored and under which has been drawn a series of arrows. Translated to English, the line, presumably written by Seferis or Longworth, appears to read "worship of sensual love on island of Cyprus" or "praise to worship of love on Cyprus". T. Clifton Longworth was deeply interested in the origins of religious belief and wrote extensively on the topic. In his studies of both ancient religions and present day tribal religions, Longworth determined the worship of love, that is, the adoration of reproductive organs as the symbol of the creative power, to be a common theme, running through the very first religions and constituting the first and most universal form of religious expression. This book presents an extensive study of the topic and, notably, the half-title carries the following printed statement: "The sale of this book is restricted to members of the Medical and Legal Professions, Anthropologists, Psychologists, Sociologists, Ethnologists and Students of Comparative Religion". In his research, Longworth visited Cyprus where he viewed the the sacred Cone of Aphrodite. He discusses it and the marvelous Greek statuary that evolved from it in his Introduction and in the book's first Chapter. George Seferis, a Greek Diplomat and Ambassador to the UK, and one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, was the first Greek ever to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature. Both he and British author Rex Warner - to whom Seferis presumably presented the book - were deeply interested in all things related to Cyprus, thus explaining both the giving of the book by Seferis to Warner and the single line written by under Seferis's signature. Copies of Longworth's books signed by him are quite scarce (this Limited Edition was not called to be signed), as are books signed by George Seferis. This copy, of course, carries both signatures and also constitutes a nice association between two noted authors, the Nobel Laureate George Seferis and the noted author and translator Rex Warner.

Item Description: London: Boriswood, 1937, 1937. Octavo. Original light blue cloth, yellow lettered spine and front cover, lower edges untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Jacket spine toned, panels only a little soiled. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, of Warner's first novel. "His Poems, published in that year [1937], made no great mark, and in later years verse was only a small part of his prolific output. But it was also in 1937 that there appeared his novel The Wild Goose Chase, written mainly in England before he left for Egypt, and this strikingly original work made an immediate impression. His tale of three brothers and their quest in an unnamed country for the wild goose, symbol of hope and personal regeneration, was rightly seen as akin to the work of Franz Kafka; but it drew also on elements of classical mythology, and even of fairy tale, in a manner genuinely new in English fiction" (ODNB).
