        Getypte brief aan 'Lieve Jongens [= Jan Wolkers en Annemarie Nauta]'.

      - 27,4 x 20,9 cm. Op briefpapier van 'Tirade'. Eén blad. Recto en verso. Gesigneerd 'Gerard' en gedateerd 'Amsterdam, 22 oktober 1959'. 71 regels tekst. Met een originele envelop [poststempel: '15 VII 1959' - zie de noot].l Fabuleus verslag van een mislukte ontmoeting, naar aanleiding van het lenen van een leunstoel. 'Ik moest toch in de buurt zijn en ben met mijn zieke lichaam helemaal door de stad gelopen met de stoel maar later dacht ik dat jullie vast kwaad moeten zijn geweest want vermoedelijk zijn jullie door mijn bonzen gestoord in de geslachtsdaad, dat moet haast wel, want het was er volstrekt het weer voor'. Vervolgens uitgebreid over eerder die middag aangeschafte onderdelen ('1 verloopstukje, 1 T-stukje, 1 slangkop, 1 3/8 nippel, 1 kraanplaat') voor een aan te leggen waterleiding. Toen om half vier 's middags bleek dat Wolkers niet thuis was, heeft Reve de stoel afgegeven aan de voordeur van een winkel, 'uit vrees dat hij door de vuilnisman plotseling meegenomen zou worden'.Tevens over de schoonheid van Maria: 'Er ontbreekt wel iets, maar ze is verblindend mooi. Waarschijnlijk is ze te efficiënt en te beheerst, en maakt ze een evenwichtige indruk terwijl het een ziedende pot waanzin is [.] Annemarie is veel meer een echte vrouw en heeft veel meer charme - het is net wat je hebben wilt'. Voorts uitvoerig over een bezoek aan Elseviers Weekblad: 'Men liet mij kennis maken met Bantzinger, ook zijn gepoetste en gelikte joker [.] Ik legde uit, althans probeerde aan de half kale Mr. J.H.M.G. Barkey Wolf uit te leggen, dat de dood eigenlijk het enige belangrijke onderwerp in de literatuur is [.] de bereisde Bantzinger begon toen over stierengevechten, die ik zei misselijk te vinden, omdat de uitslag vast stond. Eerlijke vrijwillige tweegevechten tussen mensen zou ik appreciëren, vooral als het beide mooie jongens waren en ik de overwinnaar ten geschenke zou krijgen. (Deze laatste beide voorwaarden verzweeg ik.)' Laatste zin: 'Nu ga ik de brief posten. Ik ben uw broeder in Jezus Christus onzen Verlosser en Zaligmaker'.Vier dagen na deze mislukte ontmoeting troffen de jonge schrijvers elkaar alsnog: op de vierendertigste verjaardag van Wolkers, waarbij de stoel van Reve ongetwijfeld van pas kwam. Gerard Reve en Jan Wolkers leerden elkaar kennen toen Wolkers in februari 1959 het verhaal 'Het Tillenbeest' instuurde voor Tirade. Het eerste schriftelijke contact dateert van 6 juni 1959. Deze geheel ongepubliceerde brief - de vierde of vijfde die Reve aan Wolkers zond - wordt bewaard in de envelop van de tweede brief, gedateerd 15 juli 1959. Zie voor achtergronden: 'Het was een heel knappe jongen, dat moet je niet vergeten. Interview met Jan Wolkers door Diederik van Vleuten'. Pagina 9-21 in: Het volle leven.

        The Flame Trees of Thika: Memories of an African Childhood.

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1959. First edition of the Huxley's autobiographical work based on her early life among white settlers on her father's coffee plantation in Kenya. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, "To Dr. Phil Glover- with best wishes and in memory of a wonderful safari. Elspeth Huxley March 1959." The recipient and Huxley were close friends, as Huxley writes about Glover in her work Forks and Hope An African Notebook. Dr. Phil Glover spent over fifty years in East Africa in an assortment of senior roles including the Chief Zoologist of the Kenya Department of Veterinary Services. He wrote numerous highly regarded papers in his field as well as edited the East African Wildlife Journal. A very nice association. Very good in a very good dust jacket. Jacket design by Rosemary Seligman. Elspeth Huxley prolifically wrote thirty books, but she is best known for her lyrical books The Flame Trees of Thika and The Mottled Lizard. Both are based on her experiences growing up in a coffee farm in Colonial Kenya. Her husband, Gervas Huxley was related to both Thomas and Aldous Huxley (Lownie, 2006). A year after the publication of The Flame Trees of Thika, Huxley was appointed an independent member of the Advisory Commission for the Review of the Constitution of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. She was an advocate of colonialism early in life and later called for independence for African countries (Ibid.). In the 1960s, she served as a correspondent for the National Review magazine. It was later made into the well received television series originally airing in 1981.

        Cider with Rosie. With drawings by John Ward.

      London: The Hogarth Press, 1959 - Octavo. Original green boards, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. A very good copy in the jacket with a little rubbing to extremities and slightly toned spine panel. Frontispiece drawing and illustrations to text by John Ward. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Ronnie & Christina — who give writers wings — from the author, with affection". The recipients were Christina Foyle, owner of Foyle's bookshop, and Ronald, her husband, with this copy bearing Foyle's bookseller's ticket to the front pastedown. Laid-in is an autograph letter from the author to Ronnie, dated 23 February 1972 and on Lee's headed paper. The letter acknowledges receipt of two "Rosies", and encloses by return the "Beeleigh copy, duly inscribed" — a reference to Beeleigh Abbey, Christina's house. Lee writes "I was most touched that you took the trouble to send me the Burning Piano — and most impressed that you found one (they were all impounded in Gloucestershire)", alluding to the passage on p. 272, which described "a fire at the piano-works almost every year, it seemed to be a good way of balancing the books". Lee was sued for libel, and the passage removed from subsequent editions. Accompanying the book are two Christmas cards from the author to the couple, one of which features a printed excerpt from Cider with Rosie, the other an illustration by John Ward, also from the book. A superb literary association. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
