        The Death Ship

      (Frederic Prokosch), Singapore 1958 - First edition. Batik self-wrappers with printed gold foil label. 12mo. Fine. One of 44 copies, this copy is hand-numbered by Prokosch as "One of three special copies in Tokyo Paper". Signed by the author, and additionally Inscribed by the author on the front fly with a Christmas greeting. In original envelope hand-addressed by Prokosch. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. *OCLC* locates a single copy, at Texas.

        Collected Plays [Signed by Fariña]

      Macmillan|~| London: Macmillan. (1958-1963). Richard Fariña's copies of O'Casey's collected plays, reprint editions, in four volumes, all but volume one signed by Fariña: "Fariña, Carmel, 1963." Fariña had married Joan Baez's sister Mimi in April, 1963, and the two moved to Carmel, where they began to work on writing songs and playing music. They had their musical debut at the Big Sur Folk Festival in 1964. Fariña had been an English major at Cornell, where he was good friends with Thomas Pynchon, who was a year behind him in school. Pynchon was Fariña's Best Man at his wedding to Mimi. These books seem to belong to Fariña's literary past more than his musical future, but he did return to writing, and he published his first novel, Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up To Me, in April 1966. Fariña died in a motorcycle accident days after his novel was published, and as a result very little that is signed by him turns up on the market. These books from his library give a glimpse of a moment in the life of one of the most interesting figures of the 1960s -- friend and mentor to Thomas Pynchon; friend and rival to Bob Dylan; musician, writer, and ultimately an icon. Hardbound; volume 3 has a short scuff at midspine; else all are very near fine, lacking dust jackets. . Hardcover.

        Les Americains [The Americans]

Signed by Robert Frank. In near fine condition that shows light wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box.Jack Kerouac wrote in his preface of The Americans, "Robert Frank… he sucked a sad poem out of America onto film, taking rank among the tragic poets of the world. To Robert Frank I now give this message. You got eyes." Frank's Américains eventually achieved legendary status as "the most renowned photobook of all… It struck a chord with a whole generation of American photographers… Many memorable photobooks have been derived from this mass of material. None has been more memorable, more influential, nor more fully realized than Frank's masterpiece" (Parr & Badger I:247). "From the more than 20,000 images that resulted, Frank eventually chose 83 of them and arranged them into four chapters… 'With these photographs,' he later wrote, 'I have attempted to show a cross-section of the American population. My effort was to express it simply and without confusion. The view is personal…' Such a simple intention for a book that would so alter the course of modern photography" (Roth, 150).

      [ca 1958] - 5 typescript leaves (279 x 216 mm.); pages uniformly toned, paper clip rust marks to top left-hand corner; drop title in manuscript; typescript and manuscript annotations throughout; very good.A short essay on the work and tropes of the science fiction and horror author Henry Kuttner (1915-1958), whom Leiber first met by correspondence in 1937 through H.P. Lovecraft: "Hank [i.e. Kuttner] was already breaking sharply from the Lovecraft tradition. I recall him saying that he favored revelation (the surprise twist) rather than confirmation as the more effecting story ending. He also remarked that although he liked the story of mine he'd read, he had been unable to decide for several pages whether the protagonist/was a man or a cat."

        Mothers and Children

      (NY, 1958). 16mo. 20ff. First edition, limited to 60 copies signed by the artist. This copy bears a presentation inscription on the colophon page to Ben Shahn and his wife, Bernarda Bryson Shahn. Illustrated with eighteen compact etchings of babies sleeping, crying, smiling, or being held by their mothers, which have been printed in a variety of muted colors. This is Schwartz’s second publication, his first effort being a portfolio of etchings for Predatory Birds, printed at the Gehenna Press the previous year. One can certainly detect a hint of Baskin’s influence on this work, from the arrangement of typographic ornaments on the letterpress-printed title page and colophon, as well as some of the stylistic cues in Schwartz’s etchings. In a presentation binding of full olive morocco tooled in blind and gilt by the Harcourt Bindery, the spine of which has toned to an even shade of tan. Apart from some light foxing to endleaves, this is a fine copy of a rare title with an important association.

      New York: Harper and Brothers. (1958). First. First edition. A little age-toning on the boards, near fine in near fine, first issue dustwrapper with two short tears. Inscribed (but not signed) by Updike on the front endpaper to Janet Pott: "For dearest J. in grateful memory of her many kindnesses to two very young Americans in Oxford, 1955." Laid in is an index card, evidently from the recipient's daughter, stating: "This should be in the Updike section. The inscription is from John U. & wife to Janet. And see p. 30. Genetics sometimes plays tricks." The poem on page 30, "Time's Fool," is about Janet's husband, Frederick Alexander Pott. Updike had been befriended by the Potts while in England and the poem and the book express his thanks. Updike's first book, a volume of poems written in Oxford while on a Knox Fellowship, just before returning to the United States to join the staff of The New Yorker. A wonderful early association copy of the author's first book. .
