        Three autograph letters, signed, to Evan Gill

      1957. Two full A4 sheets and one partial sheet. Set of three letters to Evan Gill, responding to Gill's request for a signature on an engraving. In the first letter, dated November 11, 1957, Jones muses that the engraving itself is somewhat of a mystery to him -- it was carved by Eric Gill from a pencil drawing of Jones's, but the year and the circumstances of its creation are beyond his recollection. He comments on its origins and artistry, and he estimates that it may have been done anywhere between 1929 and 1936. In the other two shorter missals, dated November 20 and 22, 1957, Jones sends along the signed piece. Altogether, this set of related letters gives an interesting perspective on Jones's partnership with Eric Gill and the imperfections of memory. Original folds and slight edgewear; overall fine.

        Interpersonal Diagnosis of Personality [Inscribed Association Copy]

      The Ronald Press, NY 1957 - Leary's first regularly published book, written while he was Director of Psychology Research at the Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Oakland, California. The book was voted the best book on psychotherapy in 1957 by the American Psychological Association, and was immediately recognized as a landmark: among other things, Leary's book argued that "individual character functions as an inextricable part of a larger social network," an insight that was later crucial in his experiments with the use of psychedelic drugs in psychotherapy and psychological treatment, and also with his non-academic experiments with such drugs. The accolades Leary received after the publication of this book led directly to his being offered a teaching position at Harvard, where he taught from 1959-1963. Leary left academia to pursue an iconoclastic path as an avatar of the counterculture in the 1960s, and as a prominent advocate of the use of psychedelic drugs for insight. This copy is inscribed by Leary to his longtime research assistant, and later lover, Helen Lane. Lane and Leary met in 1947 when she was secretary of the Berkeley chapter of the American Veterans Committee, in which Leary was active. She later moved to the Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Oakland, where she was a research assistant and assisted on the paper written by two other researchers that was a precursor to Leary's book, and eventually became Leary's personal assistant. After Leary's second wife left him, he and Lane began a relationship and the two went to Mexico together. After Leary left California and went to Europe with his two children, she continued to manage his affairs for a time in his absence. A near fine copy in a very good dust jacket with modest edge wear and a few chips at the corners. Seldom found in jacket at all, and equally seldom found signed; this is an excellent association copy between Leary and one of the people closest to him for a number of years at the time he was working on this book and after it was first published.

        Etchings and Dry Points

      London: P. & D. Colnaghi, 1957 Catalogue raisonné by Harold J. L. Wright. Illustrated with original dry point "Manolita" signed Flint as a frontispiece. Limited edition of 135 numbered copies. Signed by Flint on the limitation page. Publisher's navy cloth, lettered in gilt, top edge gilt; blue cloth slipcase. Near fine, with a hint of light toning to the spine, else fine; in a fine slipcase. A lovely copy. Etchings and Dry Points is a catalogue raisoneé of the Scottish artist William Russell Flint's dry points and etchings from 1914-1954. A definitive reference text for these prints, Etchings and Dry Points chronicles the different proof and published states of Flint's dry points and etchings and includes high quality reproductions to illustrate the issue points. Flint, who is recognized for his work in dry point, reflects on his affinity for the medium in the preface: "Printing a copper plate is a gently stimulating and only partly repetitive occupation. To me it was always a change of work almost as good as a holiday." In addition to Wright's bibliographic text, Etchings and Dry Points contains Flints' notes on his inspirations for and memories of creating the discussed prints. Etching and dry point are intaglio printmaking processes that involves incising lines into the surface of the plate to create grooves to hold ink and print lines when passed through a hand press, but they are created through such different processes that their end results look strikingly different. Specifically, etching is a process in which an artist uses an etching needle to draw an image on a plate through a coat of resin and then dipping the plate into an acid bath, while dry point involves drawing directly onto the plate with a needle, creating a burr that gives the lines a fuzzy look in the final print.. Illus. by Flint, William Russell. Limited. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        THE NAKED SUN

      Doubleday & Company, Inc., Garden City, New York 1957 - Octavo, jacket illustration by Ruth Ray, cloth. The second novel featuring detective Elijah Bailey and his robot partner R. Daneel Olivaw by "the writer who virtually invented the science fiction mystery. In his novels THE CAVES OF STEEL (1954) and THE NAKED SUN (1957) and in the stories collected as ASIMOV'S MYSTERIES (1968), he masterfully bridged the gap between the two genres and proved that genuine detective fiction could be set in the future as well as in the present or past." - Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, p. 29. The human/robot detective team solve another murder, this one committed on Solaris, an Outer World with a robot-run economy, where the twenty thousand Solarians, thinly spread out over the surface of the planet, live in near total isolation from each other, and the presence or touch of another Solarian produces incapacitating physical repugnance. Bailey, from an underground Earth city, must overcome his fear of open spaces to solve the crime. "In its setting, it's a sort of inversion of THE CAVES OF STEEL, and it's equally cleverly plotted." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. [249]. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-42. Survey of Science Fiction Literature III, pp. 1476-9.
