        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 FIRST FUNCTIONING BRAIN | ORGASM THEORY | VELOCITY | SCIENCE [Five texts]; Intelligence Creation | A Major Breakthrough in Science

      Published by the author 1960 - Five texts, approximately 56 pp. total, printed from spirit duplication (ditto machine). Illustrated with symbolic equations, graphs amd charts. Papin studied English, then physics at the University of Washington, finding the physics department too limiting. The work presented here is an eccentric mix of science, poetry, and biology -- the influences of Enistein and Wilhelm Reich are apparent. Papin offers mathematical proofs as well as poems and literary references to supplement his theories, and these can develop (or degenerate, take your pick) into a kind of symbolic drawing. One of the stranger collections to pass across this cataloguer's desk, and a pretty fascinating example of alternative / otherstream thought and imagination. Contains: THE FIRST FUNCTIONING BRAIN. Two editions. 13 pp (plus cover), 10 + ix pp. The latter has a notepaper-clipped to it, '1. Mathematical Biophysics Bioenergetics. 2. The Calculus of Related Algebraic Variables. Two copies are presented to show variations / developments in the author's thought. "In the evening of July 17, 1961, at Washington Bay, Alaska, I wrote down Einstein's basic formula of mass energy equivalence E=MC2 and trying to find a relation between this formula and emotion I pondered the question, "to the square of the speed of light." [ .] Time seems to be a continuous series of squares of the speed of light, one times the other." Contain a list and synopsis of Papin's Theories (Orgasm, Creation, Time, Fourth Dimension, Unity, Mystery, Space, Emotion, etc.). Hand-written dedication to Norman H. Roberts, a University of Washington physicist. Papers are in an envelope bearing Dr. Roberts' address at UW's Applied Physics Lab.ORGASM THEORY (1964) 10pp. "The square of Light is the physical orgasm."VELOCITY 10 pp. Begins with Dylan Thomas' poem, "The Force That through the Green Fuse Drives the Flower," followed by Papin's rewrite / response to it. With other poems: "Albert Einstein," "Theatre of Mind" and lists; "Hieroglyphic Symbols"SCIENCE 4pp. A sort of manifesto, with 33 theses and essay. No dates on any of the papers; note clipped to Orgasm Theory dated 1964. Papin had two books published by the Vantage Press, New York: The Mathematics of Sex, and Sex, Symbolism, and the Bible. Text printed from ditto machine, stapled in corner. Minor wear. Housed in manila envelope. Very good.
