        Extremely scarce and important Typed Letter Signed

      1961. unbound. 2 pages (front and back), 10.25 x 7.25 inches, on personal letterhead, signed twice -- once in full and again on verso with initials, and with a one-line handwritten postscript. No place, March 31, 1961. Written to noted Civil Rights and Constitutional law attorney Howard Meyer, one month before the gala Centennial Celebration of the American Civil War, in small part: "...Very few people can grasp the significance of the triumph of the Confederacy in the years after the Civil War. Be that it may, perhaps our task may currently be to outwit them by making whatever we write simply captivating from an interest point of view. It has been the trick in art for centuries and I am painfully trying to learn it. Your article should help people to feel - 'Now, that's what I thought about the Confederacy all along! - Scoundrels, traitors!' Since most of us can't help feeling that 'reactionaries' are other people - I think that they are genuinely baffled to know that anything which is supposed to be quite as quaint and as gallant as the Confederacy actually based on human slavery - militantly, blatantly so. The leaders of the Confederacy left all the evidence - it is only their modern day apologists who try to insist that that wasn't what the whole thing was about..." Signature partially smudged; otherwise fine condition. African-American playwright best known for her play "A Raisin in the Sun." She died at age 34.

        I hear bach that it's quite dry in Camarthen, Caernarvon, Pembroke, Denbigh, Anglesey and Merioneth

      1961. Sheet size: 192 × 140 mm. Pen and black ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 10 November 1961, and with pencil reproduction instructions recto. Comment, in the light of the recent severe weather, upon the polling in Wales under the 1961 Licensing Act on "dry Sundays." Welsh Sunday Polls were finally abolished in 2003. 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.

        YOUR TEENS AND MINE

      Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., (1961). First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper. SIGNED by the former First Lady on the front endpaper. Roosevelt advises how a teen-age girl can grow to be a gracious lady by recounting her own experiences of overcoming shyness and facing her fears. A few pages in the penultimate chapter have pencil and pen markings with some words crossed out and a few added, apparently in preparation for reading from the chapter. The handwriting does not appear to be Roosevelt's but possibly may be Ferris's. In any case, it's an interesting alteration to an already uncommon book, especially when autographed.

        [Offprint]: Time -- September 15, 1961

      New York: Time Inc.. 1961. Offprint of the cover story on J.D. Salinger. Cover by Robert Vickrey. Quarto. Eight loose sheets stapled at the corner which include a cover stamped "Advance for release upon receipt" with blank verso and three internal magazine pages larger than a standard page. The pages are toned with wear at the edges including a few tears and nicks, and the cover sheet has a couple of spots and three horizontal creases from being mailed, very good. A partial offprint consisting of four of the six pages of the cover story on the elusive Salinger, with photos of the author, his house in Cornish, New Hampshire, and accompanied by illustrations from Russell Hoban. Accompanied by other magazine clippings related to Salinger. .

        YOUR TEENS AND MINE

      Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., (1961). First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper. SIGNED by the former First Lady on the front endpaper. Roosevelt advises how a teen-age girl can grow to be a gracious lady by recounting her own experiences of overcoming shyness and facing her fears. A few pages in the penultimate chapter have pencil and pen markings with some words crossed out and a few added, apparently in preparation for reading from the chapter. The handwriting does not appear to be Roosevelt's but possibly may be Ferris's. In any case, it's an interesting alteration to an already uncommon book, especially when autographed.

        Franny and Zooey

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company. (1961). First. Uncorrected galleys. String-tied in unprinted gray wrappers with applied title label. Printed rectos only. Slight crease on the front wrap, modest age-toning, else near fine, with the title handwritten on the spine as "Franny and Zooy" [sic]. Laid in are a press release, a publicity statement to booksellers, and a seasonal pamphlet reviewing the book. The press release, on Little, Brown stationery, is most interesting as it details an August publication date (the book was eventually published in September) and also announces that the book would contain an introduction by Salinger (the little additional text that he reluctantly provided was used on the jacket flaps and there is no introduction within the book itself). Additionally, these galleys lack the dedication page added to the published book. By the late 1950s Salinger had become so disillusioned with the marketing practices of publishers that he broke all ties with his English publisher after they allowed Nine Stories to be published with a garish cover. With Little, Brown he stipulated that there would be no advance publicity for the book, that it would have simple and understated art design, and that Salinger himself would provide the jacket text. Rare -- we know of only a handful of other copies. .

        SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH

      1961. Photograph. About Fine. Vintage 8" x 10" photograph of Frost seated outside a house next to a woman (the recipient?) with two men seated on each side of them, with the stamp of the photographer on the verso: John F. Smith, Jr. of Middlebury, Vermont. Loosely inserted into a mat on which at the bottom is SIGNED and INSCRIBED by the poet: "to Elaine McAllister from Robert Frost Bread Loaf VT '61/Christmas greetings." It is likely that the other seated men are writers and/or teachers at Bread Loaf, but we were unable to identify them.
