        To Kill a Mockingbird.

      Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Company,, 1960. Octavo. Original green cloth-backed brown boards, title to spine brown. With the supplied dust jacket. Housed in a custom green cloth solander box. [Together with correspondence from the author:] 1) Typed letter signed with envelope, 3 November 1992; 2) Autograph letter signed, 10 November [1992]; 3) Christmas card with envelope, 16 December 1992. Ownership signature of Lillian Shipley to front free endpaper. Spine foxed and slightly faded, occasional faint spot to contents, light wear to bottom fore corner, jacket a little rubbed and creased at extremities, tiny chips and nicks to spine ends, short closed tear to foot of front panel, faint tape residue to flaps. An excellent copy in the jacket with unusually bright spine. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author to Sheldon Reid on the front free endpaper, "To Sheldon with my love, Harper Lee", together with three pieces of correspondence from the author to him. Reid, had purchased this copy of the first edition for Lee to sign for him. The front free endpaper bears the original pencilled bookseller's price and inscription: "two hundred dollars FIRM (an autographed copy sold about two years ago for $600)". Lee inscribed the copy and returned it with an autograph note, dated 10 November: "Your friends might think you're crazy, but don't worry — it'll never decrease in value!" Reid subsequently sent her flowers as a thank-you gift; in the closely-written Christmas card from Lee, dated 16 December 1992, she thanks him effusively for "one of the loveliest floral arrangements I ever had … You had the girls at the shop in a tizzy wondering about my gentleman admirer … a gentleman in this day and age is so rare that it's a cause of wonderment". She also explains that she had mailed the book to him and subsequently lost his address, and a mutual acquaintance had been unreachable ("I've been fretting for weeks that I've been unable to thank you … I know you're unlisted so called Jay for it with no success.") A further piece of correspondence from Lee accompanies the book, though unrelated to its signing: a typed letter signed, dated 3 November 1992, written prior to the exchange of the book. In it, Lee again references their mutual acquaintance ("Jay told me that … you sounded almost chipper! Keep on keeping on … life is too precious to live it on a shrink's couch"), and thanks him for sending her a newspaper clipping, and in response deplores that "Selma has reached the lowest of lows: the most shameful event in the history of Alabama took place at the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Selling pieces of the True Cross would be in better taste". Lee also decries the exploitation and "use of Mockingbird and my name" by the Blue Ribbon Committee, which was formed to raise funds for restoration of the Old Monroe County Courthouse (the inspiration for the courthouse in Mockingbird). Though it is unclear what the exact contents of the news clipping were, it is possible that Lee was objecting to the sale of voting rights memorabilia by The National Voting Rights Museum gift shop. The museum had opened earlier that same year, near the Edmund Pettus Bridge, infamous for being the site of the "Bloody Sunday" police riot in 1965, and the shop was a major source of its funding. Lee, a notoriously private and retiring author, was extremely sensitive to the exploitation of Mockingbird, and those who sought to profit from it without permission; she later sued the Monroeville County Museum for exploitation of the novel by selling merchandise. Lee concludes the letter here on a more prosaic note, lamenting that Monroeville is "100 miles in any direction from a dress shop and a bookstore. So much for fashion and culture. H. L. Mencken would feel right at home here — it is still the Sahara of the Bozart".

        The Caretaker

      London: Methuen & Co, 1960. 1st trade edition, preceded by the Samuel French acting edition. A theatrical dynamo, The Caretaker is to post-modern plays, what Washington D. C. is to lying. Pinter's own copy (the author's salient precious), of his first major success, (maybe used as a prompt copy) with his extensive deletions, alongside of some corrections, additions, notations, and changes, all in his own handwriting. Original wrappers (there was also a simultaneous hardbound issue). Very good, minor wear (game used), the best copy in the world. Very good.

Thus one of the founding fathers of the United States had roots in Ecton. Franklin himself wrote, "The notes one of my uncles (who had the same kind of curiosity in collecting family anecdotes) once put into my hands, furnished me with several particulars relating to our ancestors. From these notes I learned that the family had lived in the same village, Ecton, in Northamptonshire, for three hundred years ... is eldest son Thomas lived in the house at Ecton, and left it with the land to his only child, a daughter, who, with her husband, one Fisher, of Wellingborough, sold it to Mr. Isted, now lord of the manor there." - Franklin's autobiography.

        Mezhdunarodnyi iazyk Esperanto (grammatika, slovar' i kratkaia khrestomatiia) [The international language Esperanto (with grammar rules, a dictionary, and a short reader]

      self-published, Odessa 1960 - Small octavo (15 × 10.5 cm). Original string-bound printed wrappers; 48, [2] pp. Photo-reproduced manuscript and printed text. Owner signature to front wrapper; else very good. An unrecorded Soviet samizdat publication from Odessa, Ukraine, by one of two surviving members of the Sovetrespublikara Esperantista Unio, or Union of Soviet Esperantists, which existed from 1921 to 1937. In the 1920-1930s, Esperanto had been a popular pastime encouraged by writers and scientists such as Maxim Gorky, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, and Anatoly Lunacharsky. But in the course of the Stalinist Repressions, the Esperanto activists were accused of espionage, their belongings confiscated, and the members of the Central Committee executed. Vershinin survived, ostensibly by sheer luck: he happened to be away from Moscow when the arrests were made. After the 20th Congress of the Communist Party, in February 1956, which resulted in Khrushchev's disavoval of the Stalinist period, the first tentative attempts were made to reestablish Esperanto culture in the Soviet Union. Vershinin, now settled in Odessa, published his introduction as a manuscript" ("na pravakh rukopisi"), evidently for use among a growing circle of local Esperantists. He presents the history and goals of the language, outlines basic grammar rules, and concludes with a bibliography of primers and textbooks. A small dictionary is also included, photo-copied from an earlier publication. The reader contains short anecdotes and proverbs; a text on Zamenhof; excerpts of works by Stalin, Lenin, and the Esperantist Ivo Lapenna; a history of Esperanto in Odessa, the "cradle of Esperanto"; an excerpt in Esperanto of Pushkin's Eugene Onegin translated by N. Nekrasov; a text by Nikita Khrushchev ("Defendu Pacoj!"), and, importantly, the addresses of Soviet Esperanto libraries and circles, in places such as Tbilisi and Kazan'. Not in KVK, OCLC. Not at the Russian State or National Library. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Promotional Booklet for Jamie and Mardi-Gras Records. Circa 1960

      [No place] - Bradbound printed wrappers. 12.5" x 12.5". Light wear on the wrappers, very good or better; internally fine. Contains 27 inserts that consist of high gloss album cover art and the sleeve art for a few 7" records for music produced by Jamie Records and their "bargain" label Mardi-Gras Records (the cover lists several other small independent companies including Gone Records, Gone Latin, Goldisc, and End Records, most of which were owned or founded by George Goldner between 1957-1962). The first four inserts in the book are for the Duane Eddy album "Have Twangy Guitar Will Travel" and the sleeve art for three 7" records by Eddy, "Detour" (both mono and stereo) and "Yep!" Aside for one more Eddy album, and a few "easy listening" albums, almost all - certainly way more than half - consists of the art for Latin music, almost always identified in the title as "cha cha cha" music, including Joe Cuba and Orchestra, Sonny Rossi and the Concord Hotel Orchestra, La Playa Sextet, Al Castellanos, Johnny Conquet and Orchestra, and Emilio Reyes. Certainly rare, and probably unique documentation and an interesting evocation of Latin music in the early 1960s.

        You Come Too: Favorite Poems for Young Readers.

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1960. First edition, second printing of this collection of 51 poems. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on front free endpaper, "To Harold and Charles Howland from Robert Frost in friendship Israel March 11, 1961." This book was signed by Frost at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where served as the first lecturer in American Culture and Civilization. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Woodcuts by Thomas W. Nason. No poet is more emblematically American than Robert Frost. From "The Road Not Taken" to "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," he refined and even defined our sense of what poetry is and what it can do. T. S. Eliot judged him "the most eminent, the most distinguished Anglo-American poet now living," and he is the only writer in history to have been awarded four Pulitzer Prizes.
