        Promotional Booklet for Jamie and Mardi-Gras Records. Circa 1960

      [No place]. Near Fine. Bradbound printed wrappers. 12.5" x 12.5". Light wear on the wrappers, very good or better; internally fine. Contains 27 inserts that consist of high gloss album cover art and the sleeve art for a few 7" records for music produced by Jamie Records and their "bargain" label Mardi-Gras Records (the cover lists several other small independent companies including Gone Records, Gone Latin, Goldisc, and End Records, most of which were owned or founded by George Goldner between 1957-1962). The first four inserts in the book are for the Duane Eddy album "Have Twangy Guitar Will Travel" and the sleeve art for three 7" records by Eddy, "Detour" (both mono and stereo) and "Yep!" Aside for one more Eddy album, and a few "easy listening" albums, almost all - certainly way more than half - consists of the art for Latin music, almost always identified in the title as "cha cha cha" music, including Joe Cuba and Orchestra, Sonny Rossi and the Concord Hotel Orchestra, La Playa Sextet, Al Castellanos, Johnny Conquet and Orchestra, and Emilio Reyes. Certainly rare, and probably unique documentation and an interesting evocation of Latin music in the early 1960s.

        Letter from a Master Addict to Dangerous Drugs

      (N.-pl.): The British Journal of Addiction, [1957]. First Edition. Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Fine. Pp. 119-131 (plus a final blank page). Stapled sheets. A letterpress off-print from the British Journal of Addiction, vol. 53, no. 2. Burrough's second separate publication, one of the most widely cited first-hand accounts of drug use. In this letter, written in response to a request from a physician, Burroughs describes the effects of opiates of all sorts, cocaine, marijuana, benzedrene, peyote, Yage, nutmeg, and scopolomine. He also describes various methods used by addicts to break the opiate habit. One of the scarcest and most desireable Burroughs items, often reported to have had a print run of 50 copies, although your humble cataloguer could find no factual basis for this claim. First edition. Stapled very slightly rusted, else fine.

Mishima was a friend of Wilson and stayed at his Suffolk cottage on one of his visits to England. In the bottom margin of the last page is a public library sale stamp which presumably indicates how Wilson came to own the book in the first place. The inscription was no doubt made at the time of the Suffolk visit.Several page corners turned down. Stain to top edge. Very good in good, nicked and slightly rubbed dustwrapper a bit faded at the spine and with a fingernail-size chip at top of front panel.

        On Poetry and Poets

      London: Faber and Faber, 1957. 8vo. [8], 262 pp. Original blue cloth; printed dust jacket. Closed tear at top of front panel, some light chipping at ends of spine panel. FIRST EDITION. A FINE ASSOCIATION COPY, WITH A REVEALING LETTER BY ELIOT. Louis Untermeyer's copy, with newspaper clippings neatly pinned and laid-in at front and with a TLS from Eliot mounted on the pastedown, 16 August 1961. Eliot replies to the author-editor's request for a submission of a 6-10 page typescript, with an advance of $1,000, intended for children. "I am afraid I cannot run to that length for a script intended for children of 6 to 8. Nor do I believe I could or should try to compose a children's story limited to a vocabulary of 250 words laid down in advance. I have only written verse for children, and I have always maintainted the view, judging from the children of my acquaintance, is correct, that children like long and euphonious words, without understanding them. Indeed, for me as a child, and I am sure for any intelligent child who likes reading the new and unknown words are part of the fun. They may even be words that the child would not use until it is grown up. So I am afraid I cannot be one of your distinguished contributors." Untermeyer and his wife Bryna Ivens Untermeyer created a number of books for young people in the series Golden Treasury of Children's Literature. He edited for the Crowell-Collier Press the Modern Masters for Children Series in the 1960s. It is most likely for this that he solicited a submission from Eliot. Eliot's most famous work for children was 'Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats' [1939]. Gallup A69.

      Random House, NY 1957 - 61 pages bound in one signature. Contents very clean without any names nor marks. There are no creases or tears or soil to any of the pages. The hinges are film with no sign of cracks The matte paper over boards cover is sharp, bright, clean & square. The tips are gently rubbed; slight rubbing to top & bottom of spine. The spine has a couple of dings to the paper & a few tiny dings to the spine's edge. The scarce book is in exceptional condition, a conservative VG+, well above other copies I've seen available. The very uncommon first issue dustjacket has the $2.00 price (unclipped) and is very bright, clean, sharp, without tears. Corners gently rubbed. Top & bottom of spine has slight creasing covering 1/2" to 1 inch. Its unfortunate defect is a jagged piece of paper measuring 3 1/2" by 1/3" that is missing along the spine. It has taken out the "Dr. Seuss" and the "RAN" (in Random House). There is a tiny piece that obscures the "T" in "Hat". A professional paper conservator could reproduce the missing piece and marry it to the rest of the jacket. If not for the missing piece of spine paper, the jacket is very bright, VG+. The photo scans of the jacket are taken without the mylar cover. With the Brodart, the jacket looks even better. Please "Ask Bookseller" if this is available before ordering.

        Golda Meir

      , c. 1957-1965. c. 1957-1965. Exceedingly rare Autograph Letter Signed "Golda" as Israeli Foreign Minister, on her 3.75" x 2" business card imprinted in Hebrew "Golda Meir/Foreign Minister." In Hebrew, translated. To Baruch (Zuckerman). In full "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." 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. 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.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. 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.

        On The Road.

      New York: The Viking Press, 1957. First edition of Kerouac's classic novel. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in an excellent dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. Jacket design by Bill English. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The raucous, exuberant, often wildly funny account of a journey through America and Mexico, Jack Kerouac's On the Road instantly defined a generation on its publication in 1957: it was, in the words of a New York Times reviewer, "the clearest and most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as 'beat.'" Written in the mode of ecstatic improvisation that Allen Ginsberg described as "spontaneous bop prosody," Kerouac's novel remains electrifying in its thirst for experience and its defiant rebuke of American conformity. In his portrayal of the fervent relationship between the writer Sal Paradise and his outrageous, exasperating, and inimitable friend Dean Moriarty, Kerouac created one of the great friendships in American literature; and his rendering of the cities and highways and wildernesses that his characters restlessly explore are a hallucinatory travelogue of a nation he both mourns and celebrates. "On the Road has become a classic of the Beat Movement with its stream-of-consciousness depiction of the rejection of mainstream American values set in a physical and metaphysical journey across America" (Book in America, 136). It is the basis for the 2012 film featuring Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Alice Braga, Amy Adams, Tom Sturridge, Danny Morgan, Elisabeth Moss, Kirsten Dunst, and Viggo Mortensen. The executive producers were Francis Ford Coppola, Patrick Batteux, Jerry Leider, and Tessa Ross.

        "Synthesis of the Elements in Stars"

      First edition in the original wrappers of this key work of 20th-century cosmology which showed that most of the elements that make up the universe are formed by nuclear reactions in the interiors of stars. This copy with the ownership signature of Stanford University high-energy physicist Herbert Conrad de Staebler on the cover. Margaret Burbidge was a pioneering astronomer whose did important work on quasars and distant galaxies; the masses and rotation of galaxies (supervising Vera Rubin in this subject early in her career); and instrumentation for the Hubble Space Telescope. She was the first woman to serve as Director of the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, though the customary honorary title of Astronomer Royal was denied to her. This magisterial, 100-page paper has been described as "one of the most authoritative and comprehensive works of modern science" (Oxford Dictionary of Scientists, p. 268). It explains in detail how heavier elements like carbon and iron are produced in stars from lighter ones such as hydrogen and helium; posits the chemical evolution of the universe from the activity of stars; and provides observational evidence from stellar spectral line emulsions. It is now taken for granted by the general public, as well as by scientists, that the universe as we know it exists thanks to the synthesis of elements in the early stars. As Carl Sagan famously put it, "We are all star stuff". A beautiful copy of this important work. Reviews of Modern Physics volume 29, number 4. Lancaster PA & New York: American Physical Society, October 1957. Quarto. Original orange wrappers printed in black. Ownership signature "De Staebler" to the upper wrapper. Professionally rebacked to style. Minor bump to head of spine, minor creasing to the lower corner, spine and adjacent edges of wrappers faded, wrappers and contents overall fresh. An excellent copy.

        From Russia, With Love.

      Jonathan Cape, London 1957 - First edition of the fifth novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series. Octavo, original cloth. An excellent example in a very good dust jacket with light rubbing to the extremities. Signed by Sean Connery on the title page, who played James Bond in the film. Jacket design by Richard Chopping. "Described in the Times Literary Supplement as ‘most brilliant,’ the book was a great commercial success and helped to launch Fleming as a best-selling novelist It ended with Bond seriously wounded and nearly killed by fugu poison from the sex organs of the Japanese globe-fish While the ending was not quite Sherlock Holmes and his apparently fatal last struggle with evil at the Reichenbach Falls, Fleming had provided himself with an opportunity to remove his hero. He was not, however, to take it. There was public agitation when 007 was reported dead. Bond was irreplaceable" (Black, 27, 30). "This is a very highly sought after title, as it is generally considered the best novel in the series and the best of the movies, as well" (Biondi & Pickard, 44). Made into the 1964 film of the same title with Sean Connery as Bond and Lotte Lenya as ex-KGB agent Rosa Klebb. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      London: Peter Davies,, 1957. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine silver. With the dust jacket. Some faint marks to cloth, light spotting to edges and a strip of tanning to endpapers, a very good copy in the jacket rubbed at the extremities with small chips to the ends and corners and with a faint ring to front panel. First edition, first impression. The novel relates the publishing successes of a disturbingly unreflective and romantic young girl, based in part on late-Victorian novelist Marie Corelli. Matthew Walther observed (in a Spectator review of the recent reissue of Angel with an introduction by Hilary Mantel) how Angel, "convinced of her own genius... writes tawdry bestseller after tawdry bestseller and torments everyone around her... The book is not really a roman à clef so much as it is a kind of horrifying anti-memoir, Taylor's sounding of her own experience and dredging up her worst fears as a young female writer: mawkishness, philistinism, naïveté, stupidity, solipsism.
