        Set of all six manned Mercury launch photographs, each signed and inscribed by the astronaut on the rocket to astronaut Walter Cunningham

      The Birth of the American Space Program A One-of-a-Kind Collection of Signed Mercury Mission Launch Photographs. Brilliant color photographs, each 10 ¾ x 14 in, matted. Fine. A MAGNIFICENT COLLECTION of photographs of all six manned Mercury missions, with each Mercury astronaut inscribing his launch photograph to fellow astronaut Walter Cunningham, later the Apollo 7 lunar module pilot. Project Mercury, which began on October 7, 1958, one year after the launch of Sputnik I, aimed to put a man in orbit, to study the effects of space flight on humans, and to return men safely to earth. The collection is accompanied by a typed letter signed by astronaut Walter Cunningham stating, "This collection of six launch pad photos, one for each of the manned Mercury missions, were obtained by me personally shortly after being selected as an Astronaut [October 1963]. It was tangible proof to any visitors or old friends that I was actually acquainted with these 'heroes' and could bask in their reflected glory. The time would eventually come when I would serve the same function for many others. Walter Cunningham, Apollo VII." The wonderful, inspiring inscriptions are as follows: 1. "To Walt Cunningham, warmest personal regard and high expectations-Alan B Shepard Jr. Shepard was the first American in space. 2. "Best Wishes to Walt, Gus Grissom." Grissom was the second American in space. As a result of Gus Grissom's death in the tragic 1967 Apollo I launch pad fire, his signature on photographs of this significance is rare. 3. "Best Regard to Walt- we've had some big days as here shown, but there are even bigger ahead. Good luck, Walt JA Glenn Jr." Glenn was the first American in orbit). 4. "To Walt with a sincere 'Welcome Aboard' warm personal regard and great faith in your future contributions to the space program. Scott Carpenter." 5. "Best wishes Walt, come up sometime, Wally Schirra." 6. "Best regards to Walt, Gordon Cooper." Cooper was the first American in space for more than 24 hours.

        CATCH-22

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1961 Heller on the origin of the title "Catch-22". FIRST EDITION. Inscribed and signed by Heller: "To Jim Pepper: Who might be interested to know that if not for a novel by Leon Uris called Mila 18, this copy of Catch-22 would be Catch-18. Best wishes Joseph Heller 9/20/78." Heller planned to call the novel Catch-18, but his editor, Robert Gottlieb, warned that best-selling novelist Leon Uris was about to publish Mila 18. As an alternative, Gottlieb suggested Catch-22, and the term became part of our everyday language. For Heller and Uris, both of whom were Jewish, the number 18 had special meaning. The Hebrew number 18, yud-het, uses the same letters as the word for life, het-yud. For this reason, donations to Jewish charities and gifts for special occasions are commonly made in multiples of 18, and the number is traditionally associated with good fortune and vitality. A wonderful inscribed copy of this modern classic.

Met tientallen handgeschreven aanvullingen, doorhalingen en correcties van de auteur (in balpen) en de redacteur (in inkt). Perforatiegaatje in linkerbovenhoek.l Aantrekkelijke collectie brieven over bijdragen aan het literaire tijdschrift De Gids, aangevuld met een omvangrijk typoscript dat in 1961 uit de schrijfmachine van Bordewijk is gerold. In de eerste brief, gericht aan redacteur Hoornik, schrijft Bordewijk de redactie niet aan een tekst te kunnen helpen, tenzij: 'In mijn speeluren ben ik nu bezig aan een kleine serie beschouwingen over Den Haag van vóór de eeuwwisseling. Deze werkjes worden mij echter niet ingegeven door de algemene vertedering van thans voor die periode. Ze zijn integendeel ironisch en sterk karikaturaal bedoeld'.De tweede brief begeleidt een inzending: 'Acht U het niet ongeschikt, dan zou ik toch slechts publikatie onder mijn "schuilnaam" willen doen geschieden'. In de derde brief benadrukt Bordewijk: 'Mijn pseudoniem wilt U dus wel steeds handhaven'. Over zijn bibliografie schrijft hij: '[daar] zou ik alleen maar genoemd willen zien wat van mij onder pseudoniem verscheen [...] te weten: Paddestoelen (1916) Paddestoelen (1961)'.Enkele op- en aanmerkingen bij Bordewijks bijdrage in de vierde brief: 'Mijn spelling pas ik aan aan het nieuwste zoals de Woordenlijst dit toestaat. Zo kan men b.v. collectie schrijven, maar ook kollektie'. Voorts over Johan Gram (1833-1914), die eveneens over Den Haag schreef: '[hij] was een gekompliceerde figuur, want hij schreef 's-Gravenhage soms met en soms zonder koppelteken in de tekst'.Bordewijk biedt in de vijfde brief in 'het genre Paddestoelen door Ton Ven' een dozijn 'mal-bedoelde rijmpjes' aan. Hij besluit met: 'En verder ben ik voor 't moment half ingesneeuwd, voor de rest ingevroren'. In de laatste brief merkt Bordewijk op dat de vraag naar zijn werk toeneemt, 'speciaal naar min of meer korte verhalen. Of dit een "vlaag" is weet ik niet, maar ik poog een (winter)voorraadje aan te leggen'.Het bijgevoegde typoscript (zeventien bladen groot) omvat alle vier 'Wandelingen door Den Haag en omstreken' en het 'Woordje vooraf', zoals in De Gids van 1962 gepubliceerd onder het pseudoniem Ton Ven. Bordewijk heeft met balpen enkele spaties verduidelijkt, spelling verbeterd en wat woorden toegevoegd. Zo noteert hij in de marge van het elfde blad 'ravotten' en op het twaalfde blad 'een gunst'. De titels van de tweede, derde en vierde wandeling zijn tevens in het handschrift van Bordewijk.Brieven en kaarten van Bordewijk komen weleens in de handel, maar door Bordewijk zélf getypte vellen met oorspronkelijk proza zijn bijzonder zeldzaam en sporadisch voorhanden. Uniek ensemble.

        Dedication, The Gift Outright, The Inaugural Address, Washington, D.C., January the Twentieth 1961, accompanied by an invitation from Secretary of the Interior Stewart Lee Udall and his wife for a 26 March 1962 dinner honoring Robert Frost, and the menu from the dinner Copy #96 of 500

      New York: The Spiral Press, 1961. Limited Edition. Hardcover. This fine press limited edition was printed in March of 1961, commemorating Robert Frost's participation in the January 20, 1961 Inauguration of President John F. Kennedy. This copy is noteworthy in several respects. Condition is exceptional, the slim, fragile volume still protected by its original glassine dust jacket. Moreover, laid in we found a printed invitation and menu from U.S. Secretary of the Interior Udall and his wife to a 26 March 1962 birthday dinner for Frost “on the occasion of his birthday and the publication of his new book of poetry”. It was Stewart Lee Udall (1920-2010) who recommended that President Kennedy ask Frost to read an original poem at Kennedy's inauguration. A noted conservationist and environmental protection advocate, Udall served three terms as an Arizona Congressman before serving as Secretary of the Interior from 1961-1969 under Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. The book measures 11.5 x 7.75 inches, bound in grey paper-covered boards with a presidential eagle seal on the front cover. The contents are printed black and red with gilt and gray illustrations on ivory laid paper with untrimmed fore and bottom edges. Contents include the poems “Dedication” and “The Gift Outright” as well as Kennedy's inaugural address. This copy is hand-numbered “96” of five hundred copies on the limitation page. The binding is beautifully clean, marred only by a few trivial bumps. The contents are bright and clean with transfer browning to the pastedowns from the binding glue. The glassine dust wrapper is complete, albeit toned with some creasing, spotting, and closed tears. The menu and invitation are in fine condition. On January 20th, 1961, iconic American poet Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963) became the first poet to read in the program of a U.S. Presidential inauguration. Frost composed a new poem - “Dedication” - for the ceremony, but glare from the sun and snow famously prevented him from reading the sheet on which his poem was typed, so Frost instead recited “The Gift Outright” from memory. The new President, John F. Kennedy would say: “I've never taken the view the world of politics and the world of poetry are so far apart.” In the case of his relationship with Frost, this was more than just sentiment. In March of 1959, at a New York City press conference preceding a gala to celebrate his 85th birthday, Frost was asked about the alleged decline of New England and replied: “The next President of the United States will be from Boston. Does that sound as if New England is decaying?” Frost repeated the endorsement in the months to come, a boon to the junior Senator from Massachusetts. Kennedy wrote to Frost and quoted his poetry in his speeches. When Kennedy telegraphed Frost to ask him to speak at his Inauguration, Frost responded: “If you can bear at your age the honor of being made President of the United States, I ought to be able at my age to bear the honor of taking some part in your inauguration. I may not be equal to it but I can accept it for my cause – the arts, poetry, now for the first time taken into the affairs of statesmen.” Ironically, the quintessential poetic voice of New England was born in San Francisco and it was a 1912 move to England with his wife and children – “the place to be poor and to write poems” – that catalyzed his recognition. Returning to America in 1915 after publication of his second book, Frost embarked on “the twofold career he would lead for the rest of his life: teaching whatever ‘subjects' he pleased at a congenial college… and ‘barding around,' his term for ‘saying' poems in a conversational performance.” (ANB) By 1924 he had won the first of his eventual four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry (1931, 1937, and 1943). Frost spent his final decade and a half as “the most highly esteemed American poet of the twentieth century” with a host of academic and civic honors to his credit, the capstone of which was reading at President Kennedy's inauguration.
