Lee was the only man convicted of perpetrating the Mountain Meadows Massacre. His detailed diaries of his life in southern Utah, before and after the massacre, were edited by Brooks and published by the Huntington Library. The diary for the period of the massacre has never been released by the L.D.S. archives." Brooks was a niece of LeRoy Hafen, and an extremely competent scholar, friend of Dale Morgan, and indefatigable searcher of the truth. She faced considerable criticism within the Mormon Church, of which she remained a devout member, as a result of her scholarly writings. Juanita Brooks grew up in southern Utah and learned of the infamous massacre of 1857 through vague rumors and whispered stories. She was determined to learn the truth about the Mountain Meadows Massacre and eventually published her masterpiece, THE MOUNTAIN MEADOWS MASSACRE in 1950. This led to a lifelong interest in John D. Lee, and her two subsequent major publications: the massive two volume DIARIES OF JOHN D. LEE, published in 1955 by the Huntington Library, and this full length biography of Lee, first published in 1961. Former owner's bookplate on front free fly leaf, and inked name and address on front pastedown sheet, lightly rubbed along edges and corners, else near fine copy in a custom made cloth slipcase with leather label on spine.

      The Japan Council Against the A and H Bombs, Tokyo 1961 - np + 54pp, profusely illustrated in duotone. Text in English. Designed by Kohei Sugiura. In protective clear acetate dustwrappers. This is Ken Domon and Shomei Tomatsu's remarkable book of photographs reflecting the aftermath of the atomic bombs the US dropped on The Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to hasten the end World War II. In addition to the gripping hardbound volume of images, it contains a second English language publication in wrappers reprinting scholarly articles by Kiyoshi Sakuma, Nobuo Kusano, Toshio Hata on the radiation and its effects. A serviceable example only of this remarkable Post-War Japanese photographic book lacking the publisher's slipcase, and whose primary volume's off-white exterior is browned along the spine, moderately soiled, and exhibits notable insect damage to the ink of its decorative design of concentric circles. Internally it is bright and sound, with the textblock lightly browned along the edges and pulling ever so slightly at the signatures. The paper text volume shows some overall wear, light browning and soiling to the covers and edges, cracking along the spine, and a small closed tear to the foredge corner of the front cover. It has been priced accordingly.

        Horseman, Pass By

      Harper, NY 1961 - McMurtry's first book, one of A.C. Greene's "50 best books on Texas," basis for the movie Hud, and winner of the Jesse H. Jones Award from the Texas Institute of Letters for the best novel of the year. Horseman, Pass By, which takes its title from the closing lines of William Butler Yeats's poem "Under Ben Bulben" (as did Mary McCarthy's first novel, Cast a Cold Eye), was a breakthrough in Texas literature and in regional literature in general: by telling a raw, unadulterated story entirely fitting to its contemporary West Texas setting, McMurtry not only brought the regional novel out of its quaint gentility but gave it a universality it could not have had otherwise; it has been called a West Texas Catcher in the Rye, with the caveat that the lives of Texans in general were a little more crude than those of the Easterners in Salinger's novel. Faint foxing to foredge and endpages; still a very near fine copy in a very near fine, lightly rubbed, price-clipped dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Papers of Alexander Hamilton [27 Volume Set, Complete ]

      Columbia University Press, New York 1961 - A very good copy of the complete 27-volume set of The Papers of Alexander Hamilton, published by Columbia University Press from 1961 to 1987 under the editorial direction of Harold C. Syrett. No dust-jackets. Each volume is the presumed first edition (no explicit edition or printing statements.) Seven of the volumes are unmarked, pristine (7,8,13,14,16,26, and 27), while the remainder of the volumes have sparse underlining, mostly in pencil, on approximately one dozen pages. (No writing, notes, or highlighting.) Twelve of the volumes have additional underlining in ink (9-12, 17-24) in a few instances up to two dozen pages (10,12,24). Front endpaper is split in the gutter of volume 15, resulting in a slight wobble of the front board; else the bindings are firm, showing only minor shelf-wear, with some unobtrusive bumps to the corners of several volumes. All in all a handsome copy of the complete set. [Please note: This is NOT an ex-library copy. Also, due to the size and weight of the set extra shipping charges may be required depending on the destination and speed of delivery requested. International buyers may especially wish to inquire. Quotations gladly provided.] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gone With the Wind.

      c. 1961 - Sheet size: 177 × 182 mm. Stamped below the image for publication in the Sunday Telegraph. Pen and ink on wove paper. A man chases his hat and newspaper down the pavement amid the blown leaves and litter of a very windy day. 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.
