        FLOWER, FIST AND BESTIAL WAIL - INSCRIBED

      Eureka, CA: Hearse Press, [1960]. First Edition. Slim octavo (21cm); illustrated card wrappers, stapled; [28]pp. Lengthily inscribed by the author on verso of front wrapper: "Dear Reader - E.V. Griffith brought out this first collection of my poetry. As a first collection, long out of print, it might bring you $ or you might hide it under your shirt. It brought me stumbling into the poetry world after a solid 10 year drunk + hospitalization and near death. I have continued to drink and write, and, as you know, I will die. Charles Bukowski." Beneath his inscription, Bukowski has drawn a small self-portrait, and has added a drawing of a potted flower in yellow paint beneath his name on the title page. Pinpoint wear to upper corners, else Fine. A superb copy of the author's first book, produced after numerous delays by early advocate and Hearse Press publisher E.V. Griffith. A lengthy, early, and humorous inscription written not quite as late as the 1970's (when Bukowski produced a small "Author's Edition" out of leftover copies), but likely around the time his literary reputation had just begun to take off. Krumhansl 3; Dorbin A1.

        Production of commodities by means of commodities.

      Cambridge: Cambridge University Press,, 1960. Prelude to a critique of economic theory. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt. With the dust jacket, clipped. Foot of spine slightly faded, top edge of text block a little spotted, otherwise a bright, clean copy in the sunned and spotted dust jacket with some nicks and tape repairs to verso. First edition, first impression, of Sraffa's "classic in capital theory", his critique of the orthodox theory of value and distribution which laid the groundwork for the revival of classical and Marxian approaches. "Production of Commodities is a peculiarly sparse book. The argument has been pared to the absolute minimum to sustain the propositions which Sraffa wishes to advance. Yet, the precision and logical elegance of the argument are 'the work of an artist working in the medium of economic theory' (P. Newman) … Did any scholar have so great an impact on economic science as Piero Sraffa did in so few writings?" (The New Palgrave IV, p. 450; 460).

        To Kill A Mockingbird.

      London; Heinemann. 1960. 8vo. Original burgundy linson boards, lettered in silver to spine, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [viii], 9-296; a very good clean copy with the suggestion of a vertical crease to spine and some dusting and spotting to edges of book block; protected by an equally attractive, unclipped dustwrapper (16s) with the photographic portrait of the young author to the lower panel; the wrapper with a couple of tiny nicks to head of spine with one very small chip; a short closed tear (15mm) to lower joint at top edge (now neatly and archivally repaired with tissue) together with a small associated patch of surface loss (10 x 7mm); some browning to the reverse, and light overall toning. First U.K. edition; first published by Lippincott in Philadelphia in the same year. This classic of modern American literature, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1960, is a publishing phenomenon and probably the most widely read book dealing with race in the United States. Generations of children, and adults, have benefitted from the life-lesssons learned by young Scout, Jem, and Dill as they watch lawyer Atticus Finch battle social and racial divides in America's deep south in the 1930s.

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".
