        Twelve Autograph Letters Signed and four Typed Letters Signed to literary magazine De Gids. 16 leaves recto. 1960-1970.

      - * Highly interesting collection of elegant letters by the young Dutch poet and essayist (1936-2003), written from several adressess (in Bilthoven, Bonn, Amersfoort, Utrecht, Groningen and Tull en 't Waal), to editors of De Gids. Jellema repeatedly offers poetry to the renowned literary magazine. In 1960 his very first poems were published in the autumn issue of De Gids, according to plan: 'graag onder eigen naam publiceren'. Jellema's friend 'freule des Tombe' already sent his curriculum vitae: 'Uit de door haar verstrekte gegevens [.] kunt u nemen wat U daar voor geschikt acht'. Also about his first book publication Klein Gloria (1961). The initial enthusiasm of the editors for Jellema's poetry diminishes after only a year. On the first letter by Jellema from July 8, 1960 De Gids editor Hoornik jots down in capitals: 'vóór', but Bert Voeten commented in a report from April 12, 1961: 'Tegen - bizonder zwak en 'afgekeken''. Two of these editor's reports are attached, as are five carbon letters by editor Lekkerkerker to Jellema. In a self-conscious letter from February 21, 1963 Jellema asks Voeten to motivate his rejection: 'Ik zou U namelijk willen vragen, mij te schrijven waarom deze gedichten de critiek niet konden doorstaan'.

        Collection of 12 color slides featuring actor Steve McQueen

      N.p.: N.p., 1960. A collection of eight mounted color 35mm transparency slides and four unmounted 6cm color transparencies of Steve McQueen likely taken during the 1960s. Images include various shots of McQueen as he appeared in "Sand Pebbles" (1966), "The Cincinnati Kid" (1965), "The Magnificent Seven" (1960), "Baby the Rain Must Fall" (1965), and "Soldier in the Rain" (1963), seen holding Tuesday Weld. The collection also includes a few candid shots of McQueen, including one at the 1967 Golden Globe awards accompanied by Natalie Wood, and one in 1963 where he wears white swim trunks, amongst others. One of America's most popular and best known anti-heroes, Steve McQueen's wild, early life in many ways mimicked the gun toting, car racing rogues he would go on to play in films. After being sent to a school for troubled adolescents, having frequently been caught in juvenile street gangs, and going on to straighten out by serving in the Marines, he finally found his way into acting once his military financial aid allowed him to begin studying. This archive features work from some of his earlier films, which would win him such great acclaim that in 1972 he was the highest-grossing actor in the world. 35mm slides 2 x 2 inches. 6mm slides 2.5 x 2.5 inches. All slides Very Good plus or better.
