        TROPIC OF CANCER

      New York Grove Press 1961 - First authorized and first trade edition issued in America. With a long introduction by Karl Shapiro and a preface by Anais Nin. 8vo., publisher's original cloth backed boards in dustjacket. xxxiii, 318 pp. A handsome, clean and pleasing copy, some light evidence of age or shelving to the dustjacket, the book very fine. FIRST AUTHORIZED AND FIRST TRADE EDITION ISSUED IN AMERICA. Of the book, John Ciardi said, [it] "is a substantial work of art. The violence of Miller's attack on orthodoxy and falseness is indispensable to his human vision of things. In [the book] the test is ferocity, a ferocious and yet naive sincerity that castigates all sham. It cannot fail to be moral finally, because the ferocity is radically moral. And because the author is an artist--a very good one, as the continued 'underground life' of the book attests." Ours is a very nice copy of this classic. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND (*** Inscribed By Robert A. Heinlein ***)

      G.P. Putnam's Sons, New York (1961). G.P. Putnam's Sons, New York (1961) A very special copy of this science fiction classic, warmly inscribed by Robert Heinlein on the front free endpaper. Furthermore it is one of the scarcer type signatures of Heinlein in that he has signed informally as Bob Heinlein. Inscribed to a long ago collector whose bookplate is underneath the inscription/signature. Inscription reads: "To ------ --------- Best Wishes, Bob Heinlein." The person named matches the bookplate name. I have seen a similar inscribed copy, also on a bookclub edition, with a dealer asking price of $2,500. This copy thus priced very advantageously, and many collectors would consider an inscription by a classic author such as Heinlein to be superior to simply a simple signature for the sake of authentication. Book is square, tight and clean. Dust jacket has some wrinkling on the covers, especially the back cover, but the spine of the jacket is fine and there are no chips or tears to the jacket. No evident color fading to the jacket either, but the jacket is not the critical point of value of this copy. It is obviously the inscription with signature of one of the great science fiction writers of the golden age of science fiction that is the point of value of this copy. A most reasonably priced alternative to what it would cost to obtain a signed first edition copy. Photos of book and inscription upon request. . SIGNED BY ROBERT A. HEINLEIN. BCE. Hardcover. Near Fine/Abt. Very Good. Octavo, 414pp.

Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional association copy. "Rand's 1961 book For The New Intellectual outlines her philosophical system of Objectivism by means of excerpts from We The Living, Anthem, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged She then opens the book with an essay on the cultural bankruptcy that has undermined the capitalistic system of the United States. The essay is directed at 'the New Intellectuals' needed to restore and defend a capitalist economy in the face of that cultural bankruptcy. Rand is very clear that neither pragmatic nor economic argument is what must be used. Instead, it is arguments for 'a new morality of rational self-interest' that will provide the foundation for a new capitalist culture" (Bostaph, Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 11:1,20).

        Set of all six manned Mercury launch photographs, each signed and inscribed by the astronaut on the rocket to astronaut Walter Cunningham

      NASA, 1961-1963 - The Birth of the American Space Program A One-of-a-Kind Collection of Signed Mercury Mission Launch Photographs. Brilliant color photographs, each 10 ¾ x 14 in, matted. Fine. A MAGNIFICENT COLLECTION of photographs of all six manned Mercury missions, with each Mercury astronaut inscribing his launch photograph to fellow astronaut Walter Cunningham, later the Apollo 7 lunar module pilot. Project Mercury, which began on October 7, 1958, one year after the launch of Sputnik I, aimed to put a man in orbit, to study the effects of space flight on humans, and to return men safely to earth. The collection is accompanied by a typed letter signed by astronaut Walter Cunningham stating, “This collection of six launch pad photos, one for each of the manned Mercury missions, were obtained by me personally shortly after being selected as an Astronaut [October 1963]. It was tangible proof to any visitors or old friends that I was actually acquainted with these ‘heroes’ and could bask in their reflected glory. The time would eventually come when I would serve the same function for many others. Walter Cunningham, Apollo VII.” The wonderful, inspiring inscriptions are as follows: 1. “To Walt Cunningham, warmest personal regard and high expectations-Alan B Shepard Jr. Shepard was the first American in space. 2. “Best Wishes to Walt, Gus Grissom.” Grissom was the second American in space. As a result of Gus Grissom’s death in the tragic 1967 Apollo I launch pad fire, his signature on photographs of this significance is rare. 3. “Best Regard to Walt- we’ve had some big days as here shown, but there are even bigger ahead. Good luck, Walt JA Glenn Jr.” Glenn was the first American in orbit). 4. “To Walt with a sincere ‘Welcome Aboard’ warm personal regard and great faith in your future contributions to the space program. Scott Carpenter.” 5. “Best wishes Walt, come up sometime, Wally Schirra.” 6. “Best regards to Walt, Gordon Cooper.” Cooper was the first American in space for more than 24 hours.

Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear.The acclaimed street photographer of Naked Hollywood and Naked City is known for his documentation of the lurid undersides of stardom and commerce in mid-century Los Angeles. His use of distortion through trick lenses and multiple exposures is part of the Weegee-trademark, but it is also an artful glimpse into Weegee's perception of the underlying themes of Hollywood profiling. Ultimately, Weegee's work can be seen as a noirish glance into the urban life of the early Twentieth Century, while his autobiography is an insight into the behind that glance

        Phantom Tollbooth

      New York: Epstein & Carroll, 1961.. New York: Epstein & Carroll, 1961. First edition of this modern classic. Octavo, original blue cloth. Signed by the author with the added words, "Everything is Possible! Norton Juster." Also signed by Jules Feiffer, the illustrator. Light wear and name on the front endpaper, else near fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket which has had some light professional restoration to the extremities. This book has been described by Naomi Lewis as 'the best original modern book in the Carroll line'" (Carpenter & Prichard, 409). Anyone with an appreciation for the language and irony of Alice in Wonderland will consider this witty adventure a classic. The novel begins with a miserably bored lad who exclaims that "there is nothing for me to do, nowhere I'd care to go, and hardly anything worth seeing." Suddenly a tollbooth appears in his room, and, having no other interests, the lad Milo drives through it and sets off in his toy car for a mythic journey.
