        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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      1961 - Vintage photograph of Van Cliburn. 19619.25" x 7.25" edge to edge. Inscribed to "Hugh Pickett, in remembrance of all your kindness and thoughtful hospitality during my pleasant visit to Vancouver, Sincerely, Van Cliburn, 9/VI, 61. Fine. THIS PHOTO IS GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC. From the Estate of Hugh Pickett, the popular Vancouver impresario who brought famous musicians, movie actors and entertainers to Vancouver, British Columbia. Harvey Lavan "Van" Cliburn, Jr., (1934 -2013) was an American pianist who achieved worldwide recognition in 1958, at the age of 23, when he won the first quadrennial International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow at the height of the Cold War. His mother, an accomplished pianist who had studied under a student of Franz Liszt, discovered him playing at age three and mimicking one of her students. She began his own lessons. He developed a rich, round tone and a singing voice-like phrasing, having been taught from the start to sing each piece. Van Cliburn toured domestically and overseas. He played for royalty, heads of state, and every U.S. president from Harry S. Truman to Barack Obama. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Folklore Center presents Bob Dylan in his first New York concert

      New York: Sat. Nov. 4. 1961. "Bifolium, 8½ x 11"" (folded); some soiling; very good. With a page and a half biographical sketch of Dylan on the inside (some of it apocraphal), and a notice of Folklore Center events and folk music chatter on the back (mentioning, among others, Odetta, Alan Lomax, and Pete Seeger). This seminal leaflet is from the papers of Israel ""Izzy"" Young, founder and owner of the Folklore Center in Greenwich Village, New York where he ""arranged concerts with folk musicians and songwriters, who often made contacts with other musicians at the Folklore Center. Dylan relates in his memoirs, Chronicles, how he spent time at the Center, where Young allowed him to sit in the backroom of the store, listening to folk music records and reading books. Dylan met Dave Van Ronk in the store, and Izzy Young produced Dylan's first concert at Carnegie Chapter Hall in 1961 for which this is the announcement. Dylan wrote a song about the store and Young, 'Talking Folklore Center'"" (Wikipedia). This leaflet has often been illegally reproduced and marketed. This example comes with impeccable provenance."

        To Kill a Mockingbird / The Pulitzer Prize Novel 1961 (SIGNED)

      J.B. Lippincott Company, Philadelphia & New York 1961 - "Thirteenth Impression" stated to copyright page, and DJ front panel agrees "Thirteenth Printing." NOT price-clipped; original $3.95 price showing. Someone has used a "magic marker" to black our four words in blue ballpoint to top of FFE; we believe these words were/are "Belonged to Harper Lee." Bottom edges considerably shelf-worn but interior text block clean & very nice. Signed "Harper Lee" to title page. This book belonged to Edna L. Bowling, who ran for public office in Alabama four times in the 1970s and '80s on the minority "Prohibition" party ticket, capturing from 1.1 to 1.6 percent of the vote in her races for Congressional District 6 in 1972 and for Lt. Governor in 1974 and 1978. She fared best in her final race, for Secretary of State, in 1982, when she captured 5 percent of the vote, presumably a protest against Democrat Don Siegelman, who won the seat with 81 percent. Jim Bowling of Dallas, Texas, who sold us this copy, writes: "I was the executor of my grandmother, Edna L Bowling's estate. Most of her books passed to me. She lived in West End, Alabama and was an independent woman who successfully competed in a man's world. She was not famous but well known, since she ran for Governor (sic) several times. She sold encyclopedia's for 30 years. As a former school teacher, she wood go into small towns in Alabama, get to know the educators, city leaders and ask about students in need. She would usually stay in a small town several weeks at a time. She met Mrs. Lee in Monroeville, Alabama and she signed book on a later visit." 296 pp. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
