        "A Perfect Day for Bananafish" [story in] The New Yorker, January 31, 1948

      New York: The New Yorker Magazine. 1948. The complete story "A Perfect Day for Bananafish" in The New Yorker for January 31, 1948. Quarto. A newsstand edition, not obscured by a mailing label. Wrappers worn at the extremities, a small split at the foot of the spine, and very light waviness to several rear pages, very good. One of Salinger's best and most famous stories, and the first to feature the Glass family, centering on Seymour, the brilliant but troubled eldest sibling of Franny and Zooey. One of the most important stories of Salinger's career -- William Maxwell at The New Yorker, which had previously published only one other Salinger story, liked the initial draft but asked Salinger to revise it. Whereas he had previously just taken his writing elsewhere upon any initial rejection, this time he decided to work with editors Maxwell and Gus Lobrano. Upon its publication he was immediately hailed as an important new and singular voice in American fiction. The partnership with The New Yorker was sufficiently agreeable on both sides that the magazine signed him to a first-refusal contract, a great coup for any young writer. This story was later collected in Nine Stories but is scarce in its original format, particularly in collectible condition. A particularly desirable issue. .

        To Be or not to Bop …

      New York: Leo B. Workman,, 1948. Octavo. Wire-stitched in the original yellow textured card pictorial wraps. Author portrait to the title page and 10 pages of illustrations including full-page portraits of Bird, Diz and Monk. A little rubbed and with a few splash marks, middle bifolium loose, but overall very good. Third printing with an additional three paragraphs noting recent and upcoming record releases, and new names on the scene. This copy inscribed by the author on the title page to jazz historian Rudi Blesh; "To Rudi Blesh, good luck, a friend and fan, Sincerely Nard Griffin". Extremely uncommon - just 7 copies on OCLC, edition unspecified - one of the earliest detailed appreciations of Bop and its personnel, the title later appropriated by Gillespie for his autobiography. Odd that Griffin should be inscribing to Blesh who was very much a traditionalist, favoured journalist of "the Mouldy Figs." An unusual and attractive piece.

Shaw, then in his 90s, writes his publishers about delays in production of BERNARD SHAW ON VIVISECTION, noting "I have been waiting so long for the dummy of this book you promised me that I have forgotten everything else about it, and beg for a proof as it now stands before I finally pass it for press." He stresses the need for the dummy to facilitate the design of the dust wrapper, giving details, and requesting either a dummy or specs be sent to Miss Theodora Winsten. He concludes by noting: "I must get this publication off my mind at once, or I shall be dead before it is finally disposed of ." Signed "G. Bernard Shaw." The book finally appeared 23 June 1949. Winsten also executed the rather unpopular illustrations for the 1950 UK edition of BUOYANT BILLIONS.

        RKO PRESENTS JOHN STEINBECK'S THE PEARL. [caption title - Complete set of eight color lobby cards].

      [Los Angeles]: RKO / National Screen Services, 1948. - Complete set of eight 11 x 14 inch color lobby cards. Small marginal mend on verso of card 6, a few minor marginal nicks, minor soft creases to card 7 (barely visible except on the blank verso), light dust smudges to versos, but a very good or better set. A complete set, including the title card, of the lobby cards promoting the 1948 U.S. release of the 1947 film adaptation of Steinbeck's novella. The film (first released as LA PERLA) was produced in Mexico by Film Asociados Mexico-Americanos in association with Águila Films, and was directed by Emilio Fernandez, who also collaborated with Steinbeck and Jack Wagner on the screenplay. Master of golden age Mexican cinema, Gabriel Figueroa, served as cinematographer, and won a Golden Globe Award for his work on this film. Steinbeck's conception of THE PEARL as a cinematic vehicle from the start (he discussed it as a film with Fernandez as early as 1941), and his active participation in its production, make it of particular significance in the field of Steinbeck- related film. Complete sets are uncommon.

Les lettres, adressées à l'administration du Théâtre des Célestins, portent sur la représentation au théâtre du Roi Pêcheur, seule et unique pièce de Julien Gracq, rédigée en 1942-1943. Dans la première lettre, l'auteur donne son accord quant aux conditions posées par le Théâtre concernant ses droits sur les représentations, mais se dit "hostile à l'autorisation en exclusivité pour la France entière demandée par le Théâtre des Célestins jusqu'au 31 décembre 1993." Dans la deuxième lettre, il demande une copie du contrat qu'il a signé avec M. Lucet, alors directeur du Théâtre des Célestins. Dans la troisième lettre, Julien Gracq demande une modification de ce contrat sur la clause de durée d'autorisation en exclusivité, et fournit des indications pratiques quant au paiement de ses droits. Tampons à date de l'administration. Notes manuscrites d'une autre écriture en marge des deux dernières lettres (secrétaire).
