        Stride Toward Freedom

      New York: Harper & Brothers. (1958). First. First edition. 230pp. Faint dampstain tidemark in the very upper margins of the pages and jacket flaps, just touching a few letters on the rear flap, but otherwise affecting no text, else very good in spine-faded, about very good dustwrapper with modest chips at the spine ends. Author's first book, the story of the Montgomery Bus Strike and the ensuing action surrounding it, written when he was 29 years old. Warmly Inscribed by Dr. King using most of the front fly: "To: Dr. John W. Davis, In appreciation for your great contribution to the world of education, your humanitarian concern, and your devotion to the cause of freedom and justice. Martin L. King, Jr." Dr. John Warren Davis was born in 1888 in Georgia, and was a member of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, the same Church where Dr. King was first called to the ministry and helped to launch his career. In 1954 Dr. King accepted his first pastorate at Dexter. Dr. Davis was an associate of both Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois both of whom he met when he attended Morehouse College, and where he also taught. In 1919 he was named President of West Virginia State University, which had only 21 students - that number grew to 1900 by the time he left in 1953, and where he hosted virtually every important African-American luminary during that period. He was a keynote speaker, along with Thurgood Marshall at the 1955 convention of the American Teachers Association, and was a past President of the ATA, and also served in several capacities at the NEA, as well as being engaged with the National Science Foundation and NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. The book Black Colleges and Universities: Challenges for the Future (Praeger, 1984) is dedicated to him. Boston University Special Collections apparently housed a mimeograph of Dr. Davis's order form for this copy of the book. Dr. King's admiration for Davis is palpable, and this book helps to shed some modest light on a relationship about which little seems to be known. .

        Typed Letter, signed ("Jack Kerouac"), to Irving Rosenthal of the Chicago Review

      1418-1/2 Clouser St, Orlando, Fla, 1958. One page typed on paper. With original mailing envelope and carbon copy of Rosenthal's letter. 8.5 x 8.5 inches. Creased from prior folding, small holes at left margin from removed staples. "I've had visions and reassurances and all kinds of wild gnostic certainties handed to me" Kerouac writes in response to a letter from Irving Rosenthal of the Chicago Review (a carbon of the letter is included here), who had requested a submission for an upcoming Zen-themed issue, "I do have something for your summer issue of Zen, five pages of prose about Buddhistic meditation in the woods, an excerpted chapter from my novel-in-progress entitled The Dharma Bums. Let me know if you want me to send you that, and please sorta promise you'll print it (it's highly publishable) before I type it up in the midst of 1,000 harassments and details ... (5,000 word letters being exchanged with Hollywood producer, completion of novel-in-progress, etc. etc. ) (albums with Norman Granz, etc. etc.)." Kerouac would oblige Rosenthal with an excerpt of The Dharma Bums, which appeared in the Chicago Review under the title "Meditation in the Woods." Kerouac goes on to suggest that Rosenthal contact Gary Snyder and Phillip Whalen for more material for the Zen issue, and he mentions Zen scholar Alan Watts. "... I would suggest you contact that young man [Gary Snyder] because he is now on a round the world freighter on his way home from the Shokokuji Monastery in Kyoto Japan and can provide your issue with direct Zen material, the latest, poems or prose ... Another strong suggestion, is, get material, prose or poetry, from a contemporary Zen Master (lay) name of Phillip Whalen ... Mention to [Alan] Watts that I said that it was his duty to furnish something for your issue in order to turn the wheel of the Dharma in 1958." Whalen and Watts both appeared in The Dharma Bums (Whalen would later criticize Kerouac's "Beat Zen"), and Snyder was the model for the novel's main character, Japhy Ryder, and the embodiment of the novel's counter-culture "rucksack revolution" of wandering Zen Lunatics. "As Jack saw it, Gary's alternative life style was basically a religious way of life in The Dharma Bums ..." (Charters, Kerouac, p. 293). Kerouac writes this letter from his sisters's home in Orlando, where he had gone to write The Dharma Bums, writing the entire novel in ten sittings in November of 1957 - "he thought of himself like an athlete, sticking to his typewriter grinding out 15,000 or 20,000 words at a time" (Charters, Kerouac, p. 293). Kerouac closes with a remarkable testimony to his Buddhist practice and its very close relationship to his writing, "No, I haven't made a semi-serious study of Buddhism but a very serious one indeed, in fact I've had visions and reassurances and all kinds of wild gnostic certainties handed to me. My prose will explain that." An outstanding letter, written at the height of Kerouac's fame, and touching on some of the Zen characters and experiences that were central to the writing of The Dharma Bums.

Robert Reid, Afterword: "This is one of the ten full-leather copies of Gold called for in the edition. When the book was published in 1958, our plan was to have people pay in advance for these special copies, but we never had the time or energy to recruit patrons. . . . Thanks to [bookseller] Steve Lunsford's enthusiasm and support, Tak and I are finally able to complete our first collaboration in bookmaking, 45 years later." A handsome copy of the reprint of this early Canadian imprint
