        A Literary Miscellany by Members of the Staff and Students of The University of Cape Town, South Africa

      University of Cape Town, Cape Town 1958 - Early publications by Coetzee, dating from two years before he received his undergraduate degree. Coetzee contributes three pieces to this assemblage: "The Love Song.," "Procula to Pilate," and "Attic." A 67-page stapled mimeograph production, collected by R.G. [Robert Gay] Howarth, whom Coetzee mentions in his fictionalized autobiography, Youth. Signed by Coetzee on the front cover. Light foxing, small foredge tear to front cover; near fine, and housed in a custom clamshell case, with the spine label titled "Attic/A Literary Miscellany." We have never seen nor heard of another copy of this; the format alone suggests that a very small number would have been done, and doubtless few have survived. Exceedingly scarce early writing by a Nobel Prize-winning author. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        On The Road

      Andre Deutsch, (London) 1958 - First U.K. edition of Kerouac's landmark second book, which defined the Beat Generation and redefined postwar American literature. This copy is inscribed by the author to his longtime friend Henri Cru: "To my best/ friend Henri/ -- from Jack/ And don't you/ forget it." A spectacular association copy: Henri Cru was Kerouac's oldest and most longstanding friend. The two met in high school at Horace Mann, long before Kerouac met any of the other major Beat figures, and they remained friends for the rest of Kerouac's life. Cru appears in On The Road as "Remi Boncoeur" -- a name Cru had himself listed under in the New York phone book his whole life -- and he appears in several other of Kerouac's books as "Deni Bleu." Cru and Kerouac hit it off in high school where, according to Kerouac biographer Gerald Nicosia, "they responded to each other's basic, childlike kindness and decency and to their mutual joie de vivre." Cru introduced Kerouac to Edie Parker, his girlfriend, and she eventually became Kerouac's first wife. The best association copy of this novel to appear in the market, in our opinion: no other inscribed copy has turned up to such a close and important figure in Kerouac's life. The Rechler copy inscribed to his editor Joyce Johnson represented an important but short-lived connection. Airick Kredell's copy with the Susquehanna Ghost was inscribed to John Montgomery, an admirer of Kerouac after he became famous. The Janie Adams copy that sold last year at Sotheby's was not only a lesser association but referenced Cru in the inscription. The Cassady copy was not inscribed, as far as we know. The fact that Kerouac gave him a U.K. edition is probably explained by its simply being one of the author copies the U.K. publisher sent him upon publication. A touching inscription to a longtime and dear friend and a unique association copy of one of the great books of 20th century American literature. Very good in a very good, supplied second impression dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Art of Animation

      New York: Simon and Schuster, , 1958. The story of the Disney Studio contribution to a new art. Quarto. Original illustrated printed boards, grey cloth spine, illustrated endpapers. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black flat back cloth solander box with Mickey Mouse blocked to front. Illustrations and photographs in colour and black and white throughout. Mild bumping to corners, minor nick to tail of spine. An excellent copy in bright jacket with chipped and creased extremities, lightly stained rear panel, and a touch of foxing to flaps. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by Walt Disney on the verso of the front free endpaper, "To Vita Best Wises Walt Disney." Additionally it is inscribed by Roy Disney and contains the signatures of over 100 other people in the Walt Disney Studio, including 7 of "The Nine Old Men" who were the key animators of the studio, this copy with the signatures of Eric Larson, Frank Thomas, Milt Kahl, Ollie Johnston, Marc Davis, and Woolie Reitherman. The signatures range from the studio nurse to directors of animation. This book seems to have been given as a retirment/going away gift from the studio to Vita Victoria, whom worked in the ink and paint department, which was at the time where the majority of females worked in animation, some artists refereed to it as the "Finishing School" of hand drawn animation. The paint and ink department was responsible for transferring drawings onto celluloids and giving them colourr before being sent off to be photographed. A wonderful title which illustrates the "family" atmosphere the studio was noted for. Truly an exceptional Disneyana piece.

        THE DOOMSTERS

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1958., 1958. First edition. Fine in dust jacket with just a hint of spine fading to the multicolors at base of spine. Lew Archer is hired by Carl Hallman, the desperate-eyed junkie scion of an obscenely wealthy political dynasty, to investigate the suspicious deaths of his parents, Senator Hallman and his wife Alicia. Archer soon discovers that orange groves may have been where the Hallmans made their money, but they'd invested heavily in political intimidation and police brutality to shore up their wealth. After years of double-crossing and dirty-dealing, the family seems to be on the receiving end of a death-blow. With two dead already and another member in the nuthouse, Archer races to crack the secret before another Hallman is murdered. An exceptional copy.

A very crisp and bright copy of Coward's scarce pastiche of Edith Sitwell (she was unimpressed, yet he still published a follow-up, 'Chelsea Buns', two years later). Each appearance of Coward's first name has the diaeresis misplaced, presumably an intentional error. Neat former owner gift inscription inked to head of first leaf.. 1st Edition. Soft cover.

Like much of Cummings' verse, many of the poems in this collection draw beauty from their simplicity without sacrificing the deep emotions they address. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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. .

      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.

The book also comes with a newspaper clipping (Obituary) from a WA newspaper. "WA Cattleman dies at 93" [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
