        The Kiss Drawings, an original handwritten illustrated letter by Sergio Aragones, done in pen & red ink on both sides of a smooth machine made ivory paper sheet for his good friend, Jerry DeFuccio, an associate editor at MAD for 25 years

      The letter was sent from Majorca where Aragones was vacationing with in lieu of a signature and postscript greeting, a salutation and eight individual cheek kiss drawings in a strip format, for DeFuccio (unnamed but readily identified), and 7 named prominent MAD contributors and editors, each drawing reflecting the personalities of the recipient. The strip is full of good humor, capturing something of the working atmosphere at MAD: four of the kissed are also mentioned in the letter. LETTER: executed on a 10.87 x 8.39 inches (276 x 213 mm) sheet with a strip of 8 drawings, 7 appearing on the rear of the sheet, identified by name, the drawing on page one for DeFuccio + 17 lines, salutation and two captions, four words with an overwritten spelling correction by Aragones, one word with a cross-out. CONDITION DETAIL: Better Than Good; now in an archival plastic sleeve. Never mounted: no owner markings. Clean: ink bright, customary transmission folds. A few fingering pressure marks, principally at bottom edge: bottom outer corner crease lies flat: 2 tips with gentle creases, 1 tip with very light bend. PROVENANCE: estate of Jerry DeFuccio [1935-2001]. Mark Evanier has called him, MAD magazine's historian". CONTENT: addressed, "Dear Jerry", sited in Palma, dated August 21, 1967. The short letter is illuminating about the goings-on at MAD, the important role of contributor-editor feedback and the fun atmosphere. Aragones had sent an early version of "What is a Square?" (feature wouldn't appear until June 1968 in issue no. 119) and asks for feedback on cells the editor, Al Feldstein approves of. He also requests supplies be sent by Lenny Brenner, chief production consultant and suggests the feature writer, Tom Koch could do an allied feature, "What is a Sucker?", for which he could do the artwork. At the time, Aragones was with his wife in Palma, the capital of the island of Majorca, recovering from a bad case of the flu: he mentions he is now returning to health and beginning to draw again and advises Jerry DeFuccio that he can soon expect some marginals, (his celebrated margin drawing feature, "crammed with crowds of silly people doing silly things" (Evanier)). He leads off the letter by talking about the visit from John Putnam, longtime art director for MAD and how he and his wife enjoyed showing him the island. DRAWINGS: begins at foot of recto with Aragones kissing a patient DeFuccio on the cheek, the caption- "Smack!! Love". Over with an arrow points to the continuation of the strip on the rear, with 7 drawings of Aragones kissing respectively, Lenny Brenner (Lenny portrayed goggle-eyed with hair standing on end), Nick Meglin, contributing editor, (portrayed as a satyr, panting with extended tongue), Al Feldstein, (kissed from the back of the head, he grimaces with bared teeth), Bill Gaines, publisher, (he yelps in mock resignation), John Putnam, (closely embraced by Sergio, waits in shock for his release), Antonio Prohias, known for his "Spy vs. Spy" feature, (Originally from Cuba and a former mentor, he first introduced Arangones to MAD staff.), eyes closed, Antonio blissfully smiles, as if remembering something sweet and special, and last but not least, the estimable Al Jaffee, who in response to Sergio's kiss smacks him with a roundhouse punch to the jaw, the caption-Soc!, little forbearance and no fold-in from Al. (Al Jaffee was a particularly celebrated contributor to MAD and much admired by Aragones. He placed a fold-in feature at the back cover of every issue of MAD since 1964 and also had the regular feature, "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions".) ARAGONES: A noted and prolific contributor to MAD since shortly after coming to New York from Mexico in 1962. Second only to Al Jaffee, he contributed to 415 MAD magazine issues between January 1963 and December 2007. Aragones had the "A Mad Look At" feature in addition to his celebrated, wordless marginal drawings. In 1967 he began work at DC comics, including for "Bat Lash" (begun in 68). But he is particularly known beyond his MAD artwork for his "Groo the Wanderer" series in collaboration with Mark Evanier, begun in 1981. He has received numerous awards including the Shazam Award (1972), Harvey Awards (9 times since 1990), the National Cartoonist Society Comic Book Award (1986) and numerous other NCS awards, including the 1996 Reuben, which cites his contributions to MAD and "Groo the Wanderer".

        Jayhawker A Play in Three Acts [Signed by Sinclair Lewis]

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good. A Very Good + copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends pushed with some tiny fraying, slight amount of fading to the board edges and spine head as is usual for this title), in a Very Good dust jacket (chip to the spine head with an associated tear, small chips to the spine tail and ends of the flap folds, age toning to the edges of the flaps and rear panel, corner-clipped by the Publisher but not price-clipped and showing the price at $2.00 -- all unsurprising for this jacket which often is found worn), SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS on the title page; Sinclair Lewis' debut (and only) published Play, a joint effort by Sinclair Lewis and by Lloyd Lewis, the then drama critic for the Chicago Daily News and a Civil War history specialist. Sinclair Lewis won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Literature for "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humour, new types of characters", making him the first author from the United States to win the Prize. Declared by Sinclair Lewis Bibliographer Stephen Pastore to be "...perhaps the scarcest title in the post-1930 Lewis lexicon", the first edition of Jayhawker consisted of a mere 1,076 copies. The Play is set during the Kansas Missouri border wars which took place off and on from about 1855 to 1864. During this period, militant bands of nominal free-staters who opposed Slavery but who were willing to pillage, rob, and kill for other reasons as well, adopted the term to describe themselves. With relatively few copies of the first edition having been produced and with many of them no doubt having been claimed by time, first edition copies are rather scarce to the market. Although signed copies of Sinclair Lewis works generally are not terribly scarce, signed copies of "Jayhawker" are rare. In addition to having been signed, this copy bears a notable Provenance, having come from the Estate of decorated Naval Officer and Actor Douglas Fairbanks whose bookplate resides on the book's front pastedown. A Very Good+ copy of what itself is a rather uncommon book, and one hardly ever found signed, SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS. RARE.

His love of the African landscape and his pursuit of African game is legendary and in his work he ‘brought into focus a great deal that is significant about human living and dying, and about the trade called literature’.

A prominent and highly-regarded Poet, Shapiro won numerous Prizes, among them the 1945 Levinson Prize for Poetry, the 1945 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry (for "V-Letter and Other Poems"), the Shelley Memorial Prize (1946), the Bollingen Prize (1968), and the Oscar Blumenthal Prize for Poetry (1963).

The dustwrapper is sunned on the spine, and chipped along the top. Only a fair copy of the book. But it is inscribed by the author to 'Viola, my best wishes. Peter DePaolo." And also inscribed on the half title "To Viola--Indianapolis '500' /37. 'Fang'". The half title and its facing page contain the signatures 25 drivers and other Indy folk. Here is a list of the signatures (the * indicates he was a driver in the 1937 race; winners are shown in parentheses with the year of the win:: Peter DePaolo (1925);*Kelly Petillo (1935); Johnny Seymour (race car driver); *Lou Meyer (first three time winner Indianapolis 500); *Frank Brisko( race car driver); Billy DeVore (went on to become race car driver, (born 1910); *Al Miller (race car driver); George Souders (1927--he printed his signature); Leon Duray (two Time winner)& *Shorty Cantlon (driver, killed in crash at the 1947 race); *Louis Tomei (race car driver, sometime actor); *Floyd Roberts (1938, killed in crash at 1939 race); *Mauri Rose (three time winner, invented device allowing amputees to drive); *George Bailey (race car driver killed in practice run in 1940); Dave Evans (race car driver); & Eddie Rickenbacker; Gene Haustein (race car driver); Gar (Garfield) Wood (powerboat winner); *Chet Miller (race driver, killed in a crash during a practice run for the 1953 race); Henry Banks (race car driver); *Billy Winn (race car driver); Zeke Meyer (race car driver); Ira Hall (race car driver); *Deacon Litz (race car driver); Cotton Henning (on photo after page 176, Later Chief Mechanic to Wilbur Shaw). This is a surprising and wonderful collection of Indy autographs; seven of them are not in the Vogel collection of Indianapolis autographs. Laid in are four black and white snapshots presumably taken by the Viola of the inscription (dated 1936), one of them a good shot of the author, Peter DePaolo. Also laid in is a Gulf Timing Chart for 1937, and two tickets to the 1937 race, one a general admission (stained) and the other for a reserved seat. &

      First edition, first announcement of Erwin Schrodinger’s seminal thought experiment known as “Schrodinger’s Cat,” present here in all three papers. In May of 1935, Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen’s published a paper (the famous EPR paper) on quantum entanglement that argued, in part, that quantum mechanics was not a complete physical theory. After its publication, and in a series of letters between Einstein and Schrodinger, Schrodinger became intrigued by what Einstein believed was an absurd contradiction in the application of Heisenberg and Bohr’s Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics to the world of tangible objects. The experiment Schrodinger designed – as famous in physics as it is in philosophy -- illustrates the conflict Einstein and Schrodinger perceived between what quantum theory argues is true about the nature and behavior of matter on the microscopic level, and what we observe to be true about the nature and behavior of matter on the macroscopic level. Rather than an everyday object Einstein had discussed, however, Schrodinger applied his depiction of the absurdity of the Copenhagen interpretation to something living – to a cat. In the experiment, Schrodinger wrote: “A cat is penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following device (which must be secured against direct interference by the cat): in a Geiger counter, there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small that perhaps in the course of the hour, one of the atoms decays, but also, with equal probability, perhaps none; if it happens, the counter tube discharges, and through a relay releases a hammer that shatters a small flask of hydrocyanic acid. If one has left this entire system to itself for an hour, one would say that the cat still lives if meanwhile no atom has decayed. The psi-function of the entire system would express this by having in it the living and dead cat (pardon the expression) mixed or smeared out in equal parts.” To Schrodinger, the Copenhagen interpretation insinuates that the cat remains both alive and dead until the box is opened. “Schrödinger did not wish to promote the idea of dead-and-alive cats as a serious possibility; quite the reverse. The thought experiment serves to illustrate the bizarreness of quantum mechanics and the mathematics necessary to describe quantum states. Intended as a critique of just the Copenhagen interpretation, the Schrödinger cat thought experiment remains a topical touchstone for all interpretations of quantum mechanics. How each interpretation deals with Schrödinger's cat is often used as a way of illustrating and comparing each interpretation's particular features, strengths, and weaknesses” (Wikipedia). CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to (10.5 x 7 .75 inches). Schrodinger Papers: pp. 807-812; 823-828; 844-849 , [4]. Bound in publisher’s half black leather over grey cloth boards; gilt-lettered at the spine. Near fine condition in every way.
