        Smeer of De weldoener des vaderlands'. Toneelstuk in doorslag van typoscript met drie getypte brieven aan 'Geachte Heer [Willy] Pos'.

Arends' en gedateerd 'Dinsdag 22 Augustus [1961]'. 26 regels tekst. 3. 27,5 x 21,6 cm. Eén blad. Alleen recto. Gesigneerd 'J. Arends' en gedateerd 'Brussel Zaterdag, [26 augustus 1961]'. 21 regels tekst. 4. 27,5 x 21,6 cm. Eén blad. Alleen recto. Gesigneerd 'Jan Arends' en gedateerd 'Brussel 27-8-61'. 29 regels tekst.* Volledige tekst van het pas in 2009 ontdekte en in 2010 gepubliceerde toneelstuk, waarvan slechts één andere doorslag bekend is. Dit vermakelijke toneelstuk is een parodie op de reclamewereld en een knipoog naar de actualiteit van de zomer van 1960, toen Nederland getroffen werd door een epidemie, veroorzaakt door een schadelijk antispatmiddel in margarine van het merk Planta. Tot een opvoering van Smeer is het bij leven van de auteur nooit gekomen.Deze doorslag wijkt enigszins af van de gepubliceerde versie; het eigenlijke stuk wordt hier voorafgegaan door een veelzeggend motto: 'Het is niet nodig de waarheid te kennen om het bedrog te doorzien'. In de drie begeleidende brieven aan Willy Pos (1912-1977), directeur van de Amsterdamse Toneelschool, gaat Arends uitgebreid in op de achtergronden bij zijn stuk.In de eerste brief schrijft hij dat het hem ook in Brussel financieel 'niet zo voor de wind' gaat. 'Ik pas hier op een huis voor mensen die ee[n] half jaar in het buitenland zijn. Van die gelegenheid heb ik gebruik gemaakt om het toneelstuk te schrijven dat ik u hierbij toezend. U zult ontdekken dat het werkelijk toneel is waar spelers en toeschouwers, plezier aan kunnen beleven'. En: 'Ik heb het stuk in minder dan een week geschreven, het kan dus best zijn dat er hier en daar nog wat aan moet worden geschaafd'.De tweede brief gaat vergezeld van een 'nieuw fragment': '[.] ik was te moe om er per brief al te diep op in te gaan [.] Nu al beginnen zaken hier en daar wijziging te ondergaan terwijl de figuur van Geldmaker veel meer kleur moet krijgen'. Arends stelt zich wat onderdanig op: 'Ik weet dat ik veel van U vraag en nu heb ik het gevoel alsof ik huiswerk instuur voor een schriftelijke cursus'. Eenzaam is de schrijver ook: 'Nog altijd alleen hier in dit huis. Het is een voordeel maar soms zou ik willen dat ik met iemand kon praten'.In de derde brief aan Pos, die weer een herziening begeleidt, geeft Arends nog enkele bespiegelingen: 'Het enige wat mij in de eerste acte een beetje blijft hinderen is het telefoongesprek. Daar weet ik echter geen mouw aan de passen. Het zal het beste zijn het sterk te bekorten. Nu wil ik ook de tweede acte nog hier en daar weizigen [sic] maar niet zo ingrijpend'.

        Four photo albums of events in India, owned by Thomas W. Simons, American Counsul General in Madras

      [Circa 1957-1961]. Four photo albums of events in India that contain more than 100 professionally taken images, owned by Thomas W. Simons, American Counsul General in Madras. Three oblong octavos; one oblong quarto. All appear to be presentations to Simons, who appears to be the featured guest or speaker. These were presented by Caltex Oil Company at the Inauguration of the Caltex Oil Refinery at Visakhapatnam (1957); the Lions Club of Kottayam; at Simons' Inaugural Address of the General Council at Anmnamalai University (1961); and the fourth unidentified.Most seem to be professional photos and are artistically mounted. 107 pictures total (including seven loose), perhaps five or six lacking, whether these are the loose ones or not is unclear. Some are captioned. Images include Simons speaking at banquets with local dignitaries, many sari-clad dancing girls, pictures of Simons in the streets, etc.Curiously we could find relatively little about Simons, although his son Thomas W. Simons, Jr. seems to have made a name for himself as ambassador to Pakistan.

        APHORISMES, MENUS & VARIÉTÉS

      [Paris]: Les Francs-Bibliophiles, 1961.. 109,[8]pp. Large octavo (24.5 x 16cm). Loose gatherings laid into printed wrappers. Frontis and 24 illustrations in mezzotint, with supplementary plate laid in. Fine in lightly worn chemise and velvet covered slipcase. First edition in this format, illustrated with original mezzotints by Mario Avati. One of 175 numbered copies on Vélin de Rives, printed by Fequet and Baudier, with the mezzotints printed by Atelier Rigal. Laid into this copy is an additional bifolium, being a menu associated with the meeting of the Société des Francs-Bibliophiles on 26 October 1961, illustrated with another mezzotint, numbered 'xi/xx' and signed by Avati in the margin. The book is itself inscribed and signed by the artist opposite the half-title. Strachan singles this work out for distinction in his discussion of "la manière noire," noting that Avati exploits the "medium superbly...In these hors- and in- text mezzotints the eye caresses culinary objects and items of food from egg-cups to peeled apples, pomegranates to pepper-mills. He treats homely, everyday things with the same affection and skill as French artists have done from the Le Nain brothers in the sixteenth...to Braque in our own century." MONOD 1955. ROSENWALD COLLECTION 2228. Strachan, THE ARTIST AND THE BOOK IN FRANCE, p.222.

He started out during the Second World War at the age of 17 when his predictions of horse races, boxing matches, and other sporting events were broadcast on Armed Forces Radio.

Omarr liked to surround himself with beautiful women and was the personal adviser to Jayne Mansfield, Rita Hayworth, Kim Novak, and Mae West, among others. Omarr wrote a book on Miller, Henry Miller: His World of Urania, and Miller wrote the introduction to Sydney Omarr's Astrological Guide to 1973 and the liner notes to the record album Presenting Sydney Omarr. A very nice association. .

        Catch 22 - SIGNED

      Simon and Schuster, New York, 1961, Hardcover, Book Condition: Near Fine, Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good or Better, A First Edition, First Printing, Signed By AuthorNear fine in a very good or better dust jacket. SIGNED by the author on the title page. ADDITIONALLY - laid in is a card from Mr. Heller with the following rather amusing hand written message on his personalized notepaper: "Dear Mr. Merry: I've signed it on the page most book collectors prefer. Take good care of it. People tell me first editions are worth more than $800 today, and $200 more with a good dust jacket. The ink has been flowing more and better than ever since I got the use of my hands back. J. H." The note is not dated, but was probably written in 1981 or 1982 upon his recovery from a rare neurological disease that affected his ability to move his hands. The boards are slightly faded, corners bumped, and the front endpaper has a shadow where perhaps a sticker was removed. The price clipped jacket has general wear and tear, with some chipping and loss at the spine ends. There are tape shadows at the spine ends as well. From the library of noted collector Larry Owens, Book
