        Framed Autographed Letter Signed on personal letterhead

      1961. unbound. 1 page, 10.25 x 7.25 inches, no place, no date, circa 1961. This rare and important letter, written to constitutionalist attorney Howard N. Meyer, pertains to Hollywood's interest in turning "A Raisin in the Sun" into a motion picture, in full: "This is so wonderful, so moving and so enlightening; surely something good must come of it! For my part, I keep seeing such a great film from the book. I will be in touch with you about the offer. Congratulations on your writing." This letter is most definitely referring to the 1961 motion picture starring Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee. Boldly signed with her trademark "initial" signature at the conclusion. Together with a 6.5 x 5.5-inch black-and-white photo in a decorative gold frame measuring 14.5 x 17.25 inches with a brick-colored matte. Fine condition. In 1959 Hansberry became the first African-American to have a play performed on Broadway and "A Raisin In The Sun" was one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. The play was based on the true story of her parents' personal fight against racial discrimination while living in a white section of Chicago. She died at the age of 34 after suffering for several years from cancer, thus accounting for the rarity of this item.

        The Prime Minister would like my advice on how to deal with attacks on the party from within.

      1961 1961 - Sheet size: 190 × 138 mm. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 8 February 1961. Pen and blank ink on wove paper. Hugh Gaitskill's leadership of the Labour party in opposition had been constantly undermined by bitter internecine disputes. By February 1961 the Conservative prime minister Harold Macmillan was experiencing similar problems. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

        Catch-22 A Novel

      New York: Simon and Schuster,, 1961. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine in white, top edge stained red. With the dust jacket. Small scuff to one corner at the foot of the spine, contents very lightly toned, an excellent copy in the nicked, tanned and slightly marked dust jacket. First edition, first printing. A fine and early presentation copy with Heller unusually fulsome inscription to the front free endpaper, "To Everett Hoffman - With all good wishes from a copywriter at McCall's to a copywriter at Cunningham & Walsh, and with the sincere hope that this book will give you some pleasure. Joe Heller November 24, 1961 New York". As the inscription makes plain the recipient worked for an advertising agency - in theory therefore worked for a competitor of Heller's own employers, McCall's. The date of this inscription is within 6 weeks of publication and one the earliest we have handled. Heller would seem to have focussed his presentation of the first copies of this masterpiece on colleagues at McCall's and to fellow members of his erstwhile vocation. Towards the end of the book three passages have are scored in ink in the margin possibly by Heller.
