        Heed the Thunder

      New York: Greenberg. 1946. First. First edition. A fairly worn, but presentable, good only copy lacking the dustwrapper. This copy Inscribed by the author in pencil: "For Lois and Jim[?] very gratefully Jim Thompson 2-20-46." We do not know who the recipients were, but curiously, the dedicatees were Lois and Elliott McDowell. Whether this is the same Lois, with another companion is not immediately clear to us. Books signed by Thompson are very rare. We have sold three other books signed by Thompson in the past 20 years, and of those, two were considerably later paperback titles. The only other inscribed hardcover was another copy of this title inscribed about ten months after this one, thus making this the earliest inscribed Thompson book we have seen. To put it in context, we have handled more books signed by either J.D. Salinger or Thomas Pynchon than we have of Thompson. A superb copy of an exceptionally uncommon book, the second of only three hardcover novels published during the hardboiled author's lifetime. .

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) TO RONALD DUNCAN REGARDING THE IMPENDING PUBLICATION OF HIS FIRST BOOK

      New York, 8 April 1946. Letter. Normal creases from folding. Near Fine and a superb letter. Exceptional two-page Autograph Letter of @435 words on two separate sheets completely in the hand of and SIGNED by Charles Olson to poet, editor, and librettist Ronald Duncan, a literary acquaintance of T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound. In part: "I have had [T.S.] Eliot's regrets on 'our' mss, as you are gracious to call it. His letter crossed me from [Ezra] Pound urging him to publish. Eliot said he thought it ought to be published, but in America first. It looks now as though it will be. Reynal & Hitchcock plan to take it, with changes, and expansions in the second half.... The fact is England has always been more hospitable to Melville, from his own books on.... It would be luck if Eliot would consider.... Pound said: Duncan will help. Will you please--and take my thanks? I am asking Eliot, if the new plan doesn't take, to let you have the mss. Do with it what you think best. It may well be that Eliot's doubts of an English audience may obtain for others as well. I should like to think not. But you are boss. I don't think when I wrote you last, I had read the Pisan Cantos. They are beautiful,and Pound last summer, after the torture of the 'Gorilla Cage,' had more power over his line than ever. He is fretting at Laughlin for not getting his Confucius out and not pushing the Cantos more, but he is generally in better spirits, has now the privilege of games[?] in the prison yard, and reads with ease." SIGNED "Charles Olson." Magnificent content.

The desire to bring back our memories of Jewish Settlements which drowned in torrents of Jewish Blood. May the world have this knowledge and ponder on it. When words are too weakand too poor to convey the destruction and extermination of Jewish life, may these pictures found by accident on arrested SS soldiers, speak for themselves of the bestiality which will forever bring shame on human kind.

Sherman Billingsley (March 10, 1896 - October 4, 1966) was an American nightclub owner and former bootlegger who was the founder and owner of New York's Stork Club. From the time of the speakeasy until the 1960s, he held court on East 53rd Street. In 1951, the Stork Club began to decline in popularity after refusing service to Josephine Baker. Having witnessed the incident, actress Grace Kelly raced over to Baker and took her by the arm, storming out of the establishment along with a large party, all vowing never to return. The two women became close friends after the incident and Baker sued Billingsley and the Stork Club. After seeing that her actions had caused the club's ultimate demise, Baker withdrew her lawsuit in 1955, feeling vindicated. DATE PUBLISHED: 1946 EDITION: 136 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
