        EXCERPTS FROM VISIONS OF CODY - LIMITED EDITION, SIGNED - COPY #1

      New York: New Directions, 1960. First Edition. One of 750 numbered copies signed by the author, this being copy No.1. Octavo; 3/4 white paper over quarter purple cloth, with titles stamped in silver on spine and printed in purple and red on front panel; acetate dustwrapper; 128pp, [1]; illus; publisher's original printed prospectus laid in. Top edge slightly dusty, upper board edges lightly rubbed, with upper right corner tips gently tapped, though still sharp; Near Fine in a Near Fine, lightly-rubbed wrapper. Housed in a handsome half morocco and marbled paper slipcase. Culled from the pages of his 512-page manuscript, the excerpts from Kerouac's novel 'Visions of Cody' were shaped by his publisher at New Directions into a tight, cohesive package - something Kerouac's original manuscript lacked. At the center of the novel was Neal Cassady, a dominant influence in Kerouac's life who, as Dean Moriarty in 'On the Road,' achieved literary immortality. It would be another 13 years before the novel was published in full, some four years after Kerouac's death. Not an uncommon book, but as copies go, one could hardly do better than copy No.1.

        [Archive of Traced and Collaged Pornographic Pencil Sketches and Drawings Detailing One Man's Sexual History and Fantasies]

      [Washington D.C.], [ca. 1960-1990]. Very good. Four matching numbered three ring binders, with several additional binders and manila envelopes of supporting materials, drafts, xeroxed duplicates etc. Various media, most pencil on typing or tracing paper, some collage. Hundreds of pages in all. Very good with occasional dried (presumed) ejaculatory material to some pages (perhaps a dozen or so, posing small conservational issues relative to the size of the archive). A personally-tailored series of pornographic fantasies that portrays all of the women with whom the artist had been sexually involved (whether in reality or – it seems - in his imagination) throughout his life. Arranged chronologically and with a table of contents detailing the biographical and sexual particulars of each subject, the creator of these binders traced and collaged images from magazines and other sources (including in at least several cases original photos) to re-create these women in simulacra (finding look-alikes from magazines, pasting the heads of these women on the bodies of others). To these rather obsessive assemblages, the artist has added graphic and often exhaustive texts: describing scenes, providing dialogue, elaborating on biographical details. In short, an uncensored and almost narrative history of one man's sexual fantasies. And while these books were undoubtedly utilized primarily for masturbatory purposes, they were also made with obvious care over the course of what appears to be several decades. The artist composed them with an eye finely attuned to the visual effects he was creating. Almost two dozen individual women in all, arranged in tabbed sections over four binders. Many hundreds of pages of sketches and text total. In addition, source materials for the tracings and collages are included, as are numerous xeroxes of the final results. Admittedly, this collection is one of the most unsettling items we've handled. But it is also one of the most compelling. Henry Darger meets Raymond Pettibon: dark, weird, and twisted. But the work of an authentically original outsider, one who has given a powerful and unique rendering of his erotic world.

This is a presentation copy from Ian Fleming's literary agent Peter Janson-Smith on behalf of the author, as stated on a specially printed certificate affixed to the flyleaf completed in the hand of Janson-Smith, and signed by him in my presence in 2008. He explains that these special copies were destined for Cape's Colonial offices in recognition of their overseas sales efforts. Whilst several must have existed, I am aware of just two such examples, the other being a presentation 'Goldfinger' which resides in the Ian Fleming Bibliographical Archive. Gilbert A8a (1.1).
