One of the great travel books.Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "Dick Bird from Wilfrid Thesiger". Thesiger writes of Richard Bird on pages 251 and 254: ". an Englishman called Bird was staying in Buraimi in another of the villages, trying to persuade the tribes to let a Company look for oil. I gathered he was having little success. I had met Dick Bird three years before when he was a Political Officer in Bahrain. He was interested in and sympathetically disposed towards the Arbas, and we later became friends. . Zayid was often busy during these days helping Bird with his interminable discussions with tribal sheikhs from the surrounding country. . Bird was friendly but suspicious, wondering if I was working for some rival company. I kept away from him when visiting tribesman were about. Anyway, I was averse to all oil companies, dreading the changes and disintegration of society which they inevitably caused." Association copies from Thesiger are very scarce. Spine bruised at head and one corner a little bumped. Very good indeed in very good marked dustwrapper rubbed at the edges. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Naked Lunch

      Grove Press 1959[1962], (NY) - The first American edition of this classic novel of the Beat generation, which was not published in the U.S. until three years after its Paris publication, and until a legal challenge to its banning was successful. Such authors as Norman Mailer testified as to the literary value and accomplishment of Burroughs' work. Basis for the 1991 David Cronenberg film featuring Peter Weller, Judy Davis, Ian Holm, Julian Sands, and Roy Scheider. Inscribed by the author in 1984 for Bob Jackson. Fine in a near fine dust jacket but for creasing and a couple small chips along the top edge. A very nice copy in the original, pre-zip code, dust jacket. The first printing of the U.S. edition was only 3500 copies -- smaller even than the original Olympia Press paperback in Paris, which had a 5000-copy first printing.

        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. Nachschrift und U.

      O. O., [Oktober 1959]. - 2 SS. Gr.-4to. An Herrn Hillner von der ILB: "Von einer grösseren Reise zurück, finde ich Ihren freundlichen Brief mit dem Nachdruckexemplar meiner Kantate 'An die Mütter .' vor. Vielen Dank. Auch das Vertragsexemplar für In memoriam Bertolt Brecht ist dabei. Ich hatte freilich ganz andere Pläne mit dem Stück. Sagen Sie mir bitte: Mit welchem Recht kann die ILB oder wie sie sich nennt, Noten von mir an ander übergeben, ohne mich zu fragen, ohne diese Noten je bezahlt zu haben??!! Sie haben jetzt z. B. vier Partituren von dieser Arbeit, die die ILB noch nicht bezahlt hat, gekauft! Ein merkwürdiges Geschäftsgebahren [!], nicht wahr?! Ich will Ihnen, lieber Herr Hillner, nun keine weiteren Schwierigkeiten machen. Vielleicht haben Sie auch schon mit der Arbeit an meiner Partitur begonnen? Das wäre freilich umso unangenehmer, als ich gegen eine TASCHENausgabe bin! KEIN Dirigent kann aus so kleingedruckten Partituren dirigieren! Ich bitte daher, wenn ich den Vertrag überhaupt unterschreiben soll, zumindest eine normalgrosse Partitur anfertigen zu lassen, aus der man dirigieren kann [.]". - Im linken Rand gelocht (keine Textberührung).
