      Paris: Olympia Press 1958. Paris: Olympia Press 1958, 1958 Paris: Olympia Press, 1958. First edition. 12mo, green perfect-bound wrappers, 189 pp. Near Fine; touch peripheral wear. Please see scans. Bearing the later price overstamp. Scarce first edition - if you're here, you know the story of the bannings, burnings, and later pirate and non-pirate editions. The story of a naive and gorgeous young blonde girl - who quickly finds out in exactly what way we men are all, instantly and always, the same - borrows its plot structure from Voltaire's Candide and uses that strangely juxtaposed vehicle to shine a light on all the vagaries of modern western life which beg to be lampooned. Considered by many, then and now, to be a classic of "black (dark) humor". In 2006, Playboy Magazine included Candy on its list of the "25 Sexiest Novels Ever Written". Handsome and rare specimen of a title that is en route to becoming royalty. Please review scans. L52n

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

      1418-1/2 Clouser St, Orlando, Fla, postmarked january 29, 1958 - 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 8.5 x 8.5 inches. One page typed on paper. With original mailing envelope and carbon copy of Rosenthal's letter. Creased from prior folding, small holes at left margin from removed staples

        The Affluent Society

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1958. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1958. First edition of the economist's landmark work. Octavo, original cloth with titles to the spine in silver. Boldly signed by John Kenneth Galbraith on the front free endpaper. Also laid in a signed letter dating from 1966 on Galbraith's Harvard University letterhead. Fine in a bright near fine dust jacket with light wear. A very sharp copy this book.John Kenneth Galbraith's breakthrough as a best-selling author came with "The Affluent Society" for which he was honored with the American Economic Association's prestigious presidency. The book also influenced both the Great Society program and the rise of the American "counterculture" in the 1960's. Listed on Modern Library's 100 great nonfiction books of the twentieth century. Galbraith's ideas often addressed the influence of the potential market power of large corporations (Dunn and Pressman, 2005). He believed that corporations could become price makers, rather than price takers, by weakening the accepted principle of consumer sovereignty (Galbraith, 1970). This, in turn, allowed corporations to efficiently increase the production of their goods.

      New York: The Viking Press, 1958. New York: The Viking Press, 1958 First edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth, lettered in metallic green and silver; in the original dust jacket designed by Bill English, with an illustration of two mountain climbers to the front panel, portrait photograph of Kerouac by Keith Jennison to the rear panel. A fine copy, with a hint of wear to the spine ends, some light toning to the front endpapers, otherwise bright and fresh pages; unclipped dust jacket, with a hint of wear to the extremities, minor rubbing to the hinges, bright and clean panels with much less rubbing than usual. An excellent copy and very scarce in this condition. Kerouac wrote The Dharma Bums after On the Road during the height of his interest in Buddhism; while On the Road is a quest for adventure, The Dharma Bums represents Kerouac's quest for truth. Like many of Kerouac's other works, the characters of The Dharma Bums are based on the author's actual friends and family; this novel features Ray Smith, the fictional narrator based on Kerouac, and Japhy Ryder, inspired by poet Gary Snyder whom Kerouac cites as a major influence in his understanding of Buddhism. The Dharma Bums addresses the relationship between Kerouac's ideals and lived experiences by contrasting urban party scenes with the narrator's introspective reflections while meditating in the forest.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

      Alfred A. Knopf,, New York: 1958 - First edition. The seventh book in the Lew Archer series. Many sources believe this book marked a series turning point, when Macdonald abandoned his imitations of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett and found his own voice. It also marks Archer's turning point as a man more interested in understanding the criminal than in catching him. Slightly cocked but very good with printed, patterned boards still bright and unfaded, but with a few faint foxed spots and a bit of glue bleed through at hinge paper; in a very good dust jacket with minor soiling, a few shallow chips to spine ends and corners, and some old tape backing of a few short tears. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
