        Poems [Signed] WAS $2,565

      Boston: Atlantic Monthly Press [Little, Brown and Company], 1960. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good/near fine. PRESENTLY DISCOUNTED. WAS $2,565. A Very Good or better copy of the First American Edition, first printing (light handling soil to boards, upper board corners bumped, small sunned area to the spine head), in a Near Fine dust jacket (spine lightly sunned, modest edge wear, tiny chipping at spine ends and corners, small rub at lower portion of the front panel near the flap turn, short closed tear at the top of the front flap turn and where the front panel joins the spine tail, expected age toning to the rear panel and to the flap edges --- in excellent condition for an unlaminated dust jacket of this age), SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS [IN GREEK] on the title page. Containing 127 pages, the book presents the first comprehensive collection of Seferis' Poetry published in the United States. While some of the verses selected for this book previously appeared in the 1948 translation of "The King of Asine", the balance of them appear here in English for the first time. A Greek Diplomat and Ambassador to the UK, and one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, George Seferis won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture", making him the first Greek ever to have received the Prize. In addition to their deep relationship as friends, each man held the other in high regard, and Warner's excellent translations of his work were a major factor in Seferis' winning the Prize. Signed copies of Seferis' works are extraordinarily scarce in any language, and our search of the of the auction records shows no signed copies of his works coming to auction in the last 55 years. Altogether a Very Good copy of an extremely difficult-to-find book from the first Greek author to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. RARE.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JACKIE KENNEDY TO EVELYN PEYTON GORDON AT THE START OF HER TENURE AS FIRST LADY]

      Washington. Dec. 7, [1960].. 3pp. plus original envelope, also signed. Old folds. Envelope with some wear and soiling. Near fine. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. An interesting letter written by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy to newspaper columnist Evelyn Peyton Gordon, of the WASHINGTON DAILY NEWS, just a month after her husband's election to the presidency. In this letter, Kennedy provides insight into her expectations and her hopes for her life as First Lady. She is remarkably candid about her expectation that the press will publish inaccurate information, her desire to preserve some privacy for her children, and her concern that her family's new position not disrupt the lives of their friends. She writes: "It is so nice to read things written by someone with such great common sense. I am thinking of your column tonight about my fox hunting in Virginia. You are most correct - my greatest wish is not to disrupt that peaceful community, and spoil it for my many friends who live there, and for my own children. That is why I chose it - because it is such a private place." Her son, John Jr., was born just days earlier on Nov. 25th, and Kennedy notes that she will not be well enough to ride or hunt before the season ends in March. She explains her purpose in renting a house in Virginia is not to hunt but rather "just to be in the country with my children & occasionally go riding." She also clarifies she has only one horse which she shares with a friend, not "a stable full of thoroughbred hunters." In closing, she adds, "This letter is just for you so please don't quote any of it - though of course the facts you may use if you ever wish, in your words."

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS)

      n.d. [1960]. Framed Letter. Fine and attractively framed. Brief letter on two sides of a generic Christmas card. In full: "I appreciated those kind words in the Commonweal - an excellent selection of adjectives, said I to myself. Did you see the editorial in America about Rabbit Run? Nausesous [sic]. I hope your various projects are going well and I wish you a Merry Christmas. Flannery OC." Although the recipient is not named and the date not given, the reference to the review of Updike's book dates this to 1960. The card (4-3/4" x 5-1/2") is matted with a photograph of O'Connor (4-1/4" x 6-1/4") and framed to an overall size of 14-1/4" x 19-3/4" with a cutout on the reverse side to show both sides of the card. A unique piece capturing the gentle and humorous spirit of this great author of WISE BLOOD, A GOOD MAN IS HARD TO FIND, and THE VIOLENT BEAR IT AWAY - a writer who had a deep impact on the literature of the South, despite a debilitating handicap and a tragically short life.

        Psycho

      London: Robert Hale Limited,, 1960. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine in green and silver. With the dust jacket. Spine very slightly creased and rolled, a few small spots to edges. An excellent copy in the price-clipped and rubbed jacket with creased edges. First UK edition (originally published 1959 by Simon & Schuster, New York), first impression. This copy is inscribed by the author on the title page, "all good wishes - Robert Bloch", includes a signed excerpt leaf (for the opening of the novel) tipped in at the front, and has the bookplate of Australian writer and film-maker John Baxter. The inscription was more likely made out to Bloch's thriller-writer friend Joseph Vernon Shea, as this copy includes a lengthy and literary typed letter signed "Bob" addressed to him, in which Bloch sardonically discusses the recent success of Anatomy of a Murder (as "a juicy sex crime"), and goes on to discuss, with keen interest, the "teen-agers" of the new teen-age. Scarce inscribed, and desirable thus with such characteristic ephemera.
