Occasional chipping and tearing. Generally very good. Whole numbers 2 through 38, a near complete run (lacking only nos. oone, eleven, and thirty-three) of this seminal publication of the Mimeo Revolution and one of the most influential little magazines of the 1960's. Distributed by mailing list, FB served as an important venue for the poets of the Beat and New York schools, as well as other experimental and avant garde writers of the decade: Ginsberg, Olson, Burroughs, O'Hara, Dorn, Creeley, Duncan, Wieners, Ashbery, etc. From issue 28 on includes pictorial covers by artists such as Ray Johnson, Michael Bowen, Jess, George Hermas, Wallace Berman, and others. Includes the rare issue #24. A landmark of the mimeo form, as important to the movement as Sander's FU or Berrigan's "C," and a monumental association: Tuli Kupferberg's copies, with most issues addressed to him either by hand or with mailing label (and one issue with a brief holograph note to Kupferberg from Di Prima). The late great poet, musician, editor and publisher was of course Fug bandmates with FU publisher Ed Sanders. In addition, Kupferberg published Di Prima and Jones in his own little magazine of the period, BIRTH. An intimate of the mimeo crowd and the Lower East Side scene from which it grew, one of the most desirable sets we could imagine. [Clay and Phillips pp. 74-75]. [Anderson and Kinzie 699-700].

        [Sword of Honour Trilogy, comprising:] Men at Arms; [with] Officers and Gentlemen; [and] Unconditional Surrender

Unconditional Surrender (1961): Fine, square and tight, in about Fine jacket priced 18s net (hint of fading to fugitive red on upper third of spine panel. In all, a superb set, scarcely seen in such condition. Burgess 99, pp. 61-62. & "Sword of Honour is not merely the story of one man's battles; it is the whole history of the European struggle itself, told with verve, humour, pathos and sharp accuracy." (Burgess). In fact, it was not planned as a trilogy. Following Officers and Gentlemen, the second installment, Waugh decided he had said all he had to say about the experiences of Guy Crouchback, heir of a declining aristocratic English Roman Catholic family who, like Waugh, participated in the Dakar expedition, served a stint with the commandos, experienced the débâcle on Crete, and ended the war in Yugoslavia. But Waugh later changed his mind and completed the sequence with Unconditional Surrender. In 1966, he pruned, revised and issued the trilogy as Sword of Honour (the title is drawn from the ceremonial sword, the "Sword of Stalingrad," made "at the King's command," to be presented to the Soviet Union in recognition of the sacrifices the Soviets made against the Nazis. Before being sent to Moscow, it was put on display in Westminster Abbey where long queues of people "suffused with gratitude to their remote allies" come to worship it. Guy Crouchback is unmoved and chooses not to visit, as he is distinctly not impressed by Joseph Stalin.) But, according to Burgess, "Most readers prefer to take the items severally and in their unrevised form." In the event, it is generally regarded as Waugh’s finest achievement in fiction, with its "fine war reportage and superb comic action." Waugh received the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Men at Arms.

        a 277-page typescript titled "Tales from the Shenandoah"

      ca. 1961 - 28x21cm, 277 pp., Weighs 1200 grams. This is a typescript of an unpublished novel dealing with the nascent civil rights movement authored by the anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist [ and Ezra Pound disciple] Eustace Mullins. Pagination runs (2) [title & 1- page synopsis];1-9; 9-96; 116 -117; 122-126; 138-300; 302. Incomplete. Appears to be comprised of several different versions of this manuscript with varying paginations- uncertain if this was Mullins edited version or if this is incomplete. This appears to be among the final drafts, as an earlier version included Ezra Pound as a character, which Pound reportedly objected to and Mullins extensively revised. Mullins submitted this to the publisher of his Pound biography, who declined. ["a novel about a small town in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, consist of ten chapters, each one a vignette in the larger story. 300,000 words, The central figure is the Reverend Henry West, who becomes involved in sit-in demonstrations with Negroes, and falls in love with a 14-year-old mulatto girl, the illegitimate daughter of the Judge of the Supreme Court. The lives of all of the characters are intertwined and lead to a vigorous climax.,." - synopsis].

      Ziff-Davis, 1961. First edition of the famed photographer's autobiography. Octavo. Inscribed by the author, "To Frances Colley Weegee". 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

In de eerste brief, gericht aan redacteur Hoornik, schrijft Bordewijk de redactie niet aan een tekst te kunnen helpen, tenzij: 'In mijn speeluren ben ik nu bezig aan een kleine serie beschouwingen over Den Haag van vóór de eeuwwisseling. Deze werkjes worden mij echter niet ingegeven door de algemene vertedering van thans voor die periode. Ze zijn integendeel ironisch en sterk karikaturaal bedoeld'.De tweede brief begeleidde een inzending: 'Acht U het niet ongeschikt, dan zou ik toch slechts publikatie onder mijn "schuilnaam" willen doen geschieden'. In de derde brief benadrukt Bordewijk: 'Mijn pseudoniem wilt U dus wel steeds handhaven'. Over zijn bibliografie schrijft hij: '[daar] zou ik alleen maar genoemd willen zien wat van mij onder pseudoniem verscheen [.] te weten: Paddestoelen (1916) Paddestoelen (1961)'.Enkele op- en aanmerkingen bij Bordewijks bijdrage in de vierde brief: 'Mijn spelling pas ik aan aan het nieuwste zoals de Woordenlijst dit toestaat. Zo kan men b.v. collectie schrijven, maar ook kollektie'. Voorts over Johan Gram (1833-1914), die eveneens over Den Haag schreef: '[hij] was een gekompliceerde figuur, want hij schreef 's-Gravenhage soms met en soms zonder koppelteken in de tekst'.Bordewijk biedt in de vijfde brief in 'het genre Paddestoelen door Ton Ven' een dozijn 'mal-bedoelde rijmpjes' aan. Hij besluit met: 'En verder ben ik voor 't moment half ingesneeuwd, voor de rest ingevroren'. In de laatste brief merkt Bordewijk op dat er meer proza van zijn hand wordt gevraagd, 'speciaal naar min of meer korte verhalen. Of dit een "vlaag" is weet ik niet, maar ik poog een (winter)voorraadje aan te leggen'.

      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.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1961. First edition. about Fine/Near Fine. Book Fine but for minor foxing to closed page block and a previous owner's gift inscription on the first blank. "First Edition" stated on the copyright page, deep red top-stain, and "Note About the Authors" dated August 1961. Dust jacket Near Fine with a few short tears, minor soiling and slight loss from the lower edge of the spine. Otherwise a bright, fresh copy, unsunned and apparently unused. & & Child's culinary impact was felt long before the latest craze in the wake of the 2009 film "Julie & Julia," starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams (particularly by those of us in her hometown of Pasadena). A scarce first in any condition, but, not surprisingly, most copies splattered with wine around the coq a vin recipe, glued with cheese on the soufflé page and seemingly dipped in hollandaise sauce, not to mention the copious notes written in the margins around family favorites. This copy suffers from none of those annoyances; a true collector's copy. about Fine in Near Fine. dust jacket.
