A fine copy in fine dust jacket with just a hint of darkening to spine.The ninth novel in the James Bond series, published March 27, 1961 in an initial print run of 50,938 copies that quickly sold out. Technically the first novelization of a James Bond screenplay, it was born from a collaboration by five people: Ian Fleming, Kevin McClory, Jack Whittingham, Ivar Bryce and Ernest Cuneo, although the controversial shared credit of Fleming, McClory and Whittingham was the result of a courtroom decision. The book appeared before the film was produced.James Bond, Secret Service operative 007, travels to the Bahamas to regain his health but winds up working with his old friend, CIA operative Felix Leiter, last seen in Dr. No. The story concerns the theft of two atomic bombs by the crime syndicate SPECTRE and the subsequent attempted blackmail of the Western powers for their return. Thunderball introduced SPECTRE's leader, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, in the first of three appearances in Bond novels. The Bond girl this time around is Domino, mistress of villain, Emilio Largo, and, per usual, this domino falls for 007.

        Original, complete typescript of his comment on the 1982 'Economic Report of the President: The Annual Report of the Council of Economic Advisers'. With numerous handwritten corrections and additions. 19 leaves, white and yellow paper, signed. Impressive critique of the first year of the Reaganomic policy, written one year after Tobin had been awarded the Nobel Prize.

      . . The comment was to be published in a forthcoming issue of the 'Journal of Monetary Economics'. Tobin was, besides teaching and research at Harvard and Yale University, strongly involved in the public life, writing on current economic issues and working as an economic expert and policy consultant. During 1961-62, he himself had served as a member of John F. Kennedy's Council of Economic Advisors, then as a consultant between 1962-68. The 1982 report he comments here, was the first after Ronald Reagan's election and so was "the occasion for his advisers to expound in full detail the administration's economic strategy and its rationale" (Tobin, S. 1). "The 1982 Report is a manifesto of counter-revolution." (Tobin, S. 2). "The Report holds out little hope for fiscal policy as a tool of stabilization." (Tobin, S. 10). "No article of Reaganomic faith is more central than the proposition that the economic difficulties of recent years are due to the growth of the federal government." (Tobin, S. 14). Attached his signed, printed portrait and a signed letter concerning the typescript.

        Typed letter signed regarding the layout of Franny and Zooey

      N.p., 1961. N.p.: N.p., 1961. First Edition. Typed letter signed, dated May 27, 1961 at his home in Windsor, Vermont, to Mary Rackliffe, head copy editor at Little, Brown, regarding a disagreement about the running titles for the forthcoming publication of "Franny and Zooey." & & In the letter, Salinger objects strongly to the use of the full "Franny and Zooey" as the header over both stories, instead insisting that they simply be "Franny" and "Zooey" respectively. He acknowledges that the layout department may "feel that those single, short titles dress the page badly or unnicely," and by way of rebuttal directs them to "have a look at the last story in my collection 'Nine Stories'... the word 'Teddy' looks perfectly reasonable carried as a running header."& & He then makes an apology to Rackliffe for "directing my complaints at you personally," but that "this affair of the Running Heads doesn't exactly inspire confidence" and is "very hard to take."& & A fascinating letter, reflecting Salinger's well known insistence on having input into the final design and printing of his books. In the end, unsurprisingly, Salinger got what he wanted and the running titles were changed between the proof and the First Edition to reflect his preference.& & 8.5 x 11 inches, single sheet, rectos only. SIGNED as "J.D. Salinger." Fine condition, folded twice for mailing, with two staple holes to the upper left corner. Also included is the original mailing envelope, postmarked May 29, 1961, from Salinger to Rackliffe at Little, Brown in Boston, MA, in Near Fine condition.
