      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.
