        John F. Kennedy Signed Inaugural Address.

      Life Magazine's souvenir edition commemorating Kennedy's inauguration. Boldly inscribed by Kennedy, "For Mr. Joseph Clark with very best wishes, John Kennedy. The recipient, Joseph Clark was a United States Senator from Pennsylvania from 1957 to 1969. He worked with Kennedy in the Senate, and continued to their push for civil rights, highlighting the issue as a major part of Kennedy's presidential campaign. Endorsing new legislation--to extend voting rights, end discrimination in education and housing, and establish the Fair Employment Practices Commission, among other things--Kennedy announced during his campaign that Clark and Congressman Emanuel Celler had agreed to prepare a comprehensive civil rights bill 'embodying the commitments of the Democratic platform,' to be introduced early in the next congressional session. One of the key issues in Kennedy's campaign, which helped him win the presidency in 1960. Matted and framed with the printed text of Kennedy's inaugural speech, a portrait of Kennedy giving his speech. The entire piece measures 27 inches by 34 inches. Rare and desirable, especially with such an association. After three years working together in the Senate, John F. Kennedy and his liberal Democratic colleague from Pennsylvania, Joseph S. Clark, Jr., continued their push for civil rights, highlighting the issue as a major part of Kennedy's presidential campaign.

A contemporary, signed, inscription from Yourcenar, fills the front free endpaper with a long quotation. Fine in fine dustjacket. Marguerite Yourcenar is under appreciated but will ambush you like identity theft. In Coup de Grâce a Prussian officer murders the woman who loves him because he loves her brother, in line with the central figures throughout her fiction, men torn between their passions and society's demands, during key moments of history. After WW II, she lived in France and the U. S. with her partner, Grace Frick, who translated this book into English. In 1950 they moved to Maine, and in 1980 (go Margot) Yourcenar became the first woman elected to the Academie Française (all customs were once eccentricities), that elitist society, created by Cardinal Richelieu in 1634 (the very Richelieu from The Three Musketeers), limited to 40 constituents entrusted with guarding French culture and to which admission is only upon the death of a sitting member (you can write your own joke here)_______________.

        On the Road.

      New York: Viking Press,, 1957. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front cover in white, top edge red. With the dust jacket. Housed in a custom blue morocco-backed black cloth folding-case. Minor wear at extremities; an excellent copy in the jacket with slight creasing to extremities and small chip to head of rear panel. First edition, first printing. A highly important presentation copy, inscribed by the author to John Montgomery with a drawing by Kerouac of the ghost of the Susquehanna, relating to both On the Road and The Dharma Bums. Montgomery was a Berkeley librarian who, according to Gerald Nocosial, "fascinated Jack with his scholarly non sequiturs." In October 1955, the poet Gary Snyder and Montgomery fitted Kerouac up with hiking gear and the three of them hiked up the 12,000-foot ridge of Matterhorn Mountain in Yosemite. This episode was to be transformed by Kerouac in to a key event in his celebrated novel, The Dharma Bums. In the novel, Montgomery is depicted as Henry Morley and Snyder, Japhy Ryder. Kerouac described the three men's expedition as "all completely serious, all completely hallucinated, all completely happy". Kerouac's evocative drawing depicts the Ghost of the Susquehanna, described in chapter 14 of part one of On the Road. "It was the night of the Ghost of the Susquehanna. The Ghost was a shrivelled little old man with a paper satchel who claimed he was headed for 'Canady.' He walked very fast, commanding me to follow, and said there was a bridge up ahead we could cross... as far as I could see he was just a semi-respectable walking hobo of some kind who had covered the entire Eastern Wilderness on foot... We were bums together. We walked seven miles along the mournful Susquehanna. It is a terrifying river. It has bushy cliffs on both sides that lean like hairy ghosts over the unknown waters. Inky night covers all... I thought all the wilderness of America was in the West till the Ghost of the Susquehanna showed me different..." While the Ghost undoubtedly has its origins in a hobo Kerouac encountered in western Pennsylvania, the vision is also inspired by a recurring nightmare, which Kerouac related to Allen Ginsburg and others in the late 1940s. He dreamed repeatedly of being pursued by a "Hooded Wayfarer without a Name." Kerouac came to believe that the hooded figure was merely his own self wearing a shroud. The first draft of On the Road to contain a scene approximating his dreams of the shrouded stranger was produced in 1951. Provenance: John McVey Montgomery (1919–1992); sold by him c.1988 via a Californian book dealer to Ken Lopez and Tom Congalton; subsequently in the noted Kerouac collection of Airick Kredell (1950–2004); sold in 2004 by Skyline Books to a private collector in London.

        FROM RUSSIA, WITH LOVE

      Cape: London, 1957. First printing. Black boards. Page edges very lightly yellowed, with light mottling to top page edges, tidy ink owner name on front free endpaper; else fine, corners sharp. The dust jacket spine is a bit yellowed, with a bit of rubbing to the folds and tiny nicks and chips to corners; yellowing to front flap fold; small tear to upper inner corner of front panel; rear panel is yellowed and rippled from damp, including a tide mark in bottom margin; in all VG minus, flap price (13s6d) intact. As there are no damp marks on the rear cover of the book, I feel sure this jacket was supplied from another copy. The fifth James Bond novel, the one in which he battles SMERSH. Basis of the 1964 film classic starring Sean Connery, Robert Shaw, and Lotte Leyna. Considered by many to be the best of Bond, movie and book. Also, the first of the Chopping dust jackets. An interesting footnote: the actual first printing sheets were found unsatisfactory by Cape, who sold them all to Foyle's Book Club. Thus, this Cape first was actually made from second printing sheets. But no matter, it is this edition everyone wants. Binding: Hardcover.

        Golda Meir

      c. 1957-1965. Exceedingly rare Autograph Letter Signed <i>"<b>Golda</b>"</i> as Israeli Foreign Minister, on her 3.75" x 2" business card imprinted in Hebrew <i>"Golda Meir/Foreign Minister."</i> In Hebrew, translated. To Baruch (Zuckerman). In full <i>"<b>Dear Baruch, I am very sorry that I will not be able to attend your birthday, along with your whole family. A thrombosis in my leg has put me in the hospital. Had I come I would have asked for permission to say what is in my heart. I will wait for another opportunity and for now I will only send you my best wishes and many returns. I send my love to you, Nina and the girls.</b>"</i> <br><br>As Golda Meir served as Israeli Foreign Minister from July 1956 to January 1966 and Baruch Zuckerman's birthday was June 26th, this letter must have been written between 1957 and 1965. When she announced her retirement as Foreign Minister, Meir cited her health problems as part of the reason, so the letter, penned from her hospital bed, was most probably written in the early 1960s. It is in fine condition with an indiscernible mid-vertical fold. <br><br>Autograph Letters Signed of Golda Meir are virtually unobtainable. In the last 27 years, while Meir Typed Letters Signed have appeared at major auction houses from time to time, not one ALS has ever been offered for sale. This one, written to an early Zionist leader, is one of exceptional Israeli historical association.<br><br>Baruch Zuckerman (1887-1970) emigrated from Poland to the United States in 1904 and, inspired by Herzl, founded the Poale Zion Publishing Association in New York which published the works of leading Zionists who sought to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Poale Zion (Hebrew for Workers of Zion) was a movement of Marxist Zionist workers circles founded in various Russian cities around 1900 and in New York City in 1903. He was executive director of the People's Relief Committee from 1915 to 1924 when it disbanded, and accompanied Herbert Hoover and investment banker Herbert Lehman to Poland to bring food and clothing to those in need. <br><br>After World War I, Poale Zion in Palestine was merged by David Ben-Gurion into the Achdut Ha'avoda party which eventually became Mapai of which Golda Meir was a member and later secretary-general. Zuckerman, leader of the American Poale Zion, was one of the founders and officers of the American Jewish Congress and president of the Labor Zionist Organization of America which Meir joined in 1915. After Nina and Baruch Zuckerman and their daughters moved to Jerusalem in 1932, their house became a meeting place for the leaders of the Zionist Movement. Golda Meir had to go back to America with her two children because her daughter Sara had kidney trouble for which suitable treatment was not available in Palestine. Her husband Morris Meyerson, who stayed behind, moved in with the Zuckermans. "Everyone thought Morris Meyerson was our father because our father was never home," recalls Baruch's younger daughter Nomi. In 1937, Nomi Zuckerman graduated high school and went to study at a teacher's seminary in Tel Aviv. Golda Meir had already returned so Nomi moved in with Golda's family and helped to run the household, "although," recalled Nomi, "Golda baked the Shabbat cake." While his wife and daughters remained in Palestine, Baruch Zuckerman's many activities as an emissary precluded him from residing in Israel until his retirement in 1956. <br><br>
