        Revolutionary Road

      Little, Brown & Co., Boston 1961 - Fine in a quite nearly fine jacket, with one tiny snag to the upper middle front panel, else fine. A truly superior and actually exemplary copy of this novel; it's not hyperbole to say this copy looks and feels as if it were just pulled off a shelf in the bookstore. The jacket retains its price marking of $4.75; there is none of the usual sunning to the jacket spine; no markings or inscriptions. Bright and fresh and extremely uncommon as such. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A House For Mr. Biswas

      London: Andre Deutsch, 1961. First edition of the author's magnum opus. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the author on the title page. Some foxing to the page edges, a very good copy in the dust jacket that shows some chips to the crown and foot of the spine. For sheer abundance of talent there can hardly be a writer alive who surpasses V.S. Naipaul. Whatever we may want in a novelist is to be found in his books: an almost Conradian gift for tensing a story, a serious involvement with human issues, a supple English prose, a hard-edged wit, a personal vision of things...[He is] the world's writer, a master of language and perception" (The New York Times Book Review). Listed on both Modern Library and Time's 100 great novels of the twentieth century.

        Vienna Stake

      1961. Sheet size: 189 × 139 mm. Pen and ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Daily Mail, 3 June 1961. President John F. Kennedy looks balefully at a restaurant menu offering only one item. The summit conference held in Vienna on 4 June 1961 between John F. Kennedy and Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev was predicted to be difficult for the callow president in the wake of his Bay of Pigs fiasco in April 1961. 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.

        [TYPED LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION FOR WALTER NEIL LETSON, SIGNED BY JACQUELINE KENNEDY]

      Palm Beach, Fl. Dec. 17, 1961.. 1p. Fine. In a green half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. Letter of recommendation, signed by Jacqueline Kennedy as First Lady, expressing "my high regard for Mr. Walter Neil Letson." Letson was an architect who oversaw renovation on the White House. She writes: "I am delighted to have an opportunity to express my high regard for Mr. Walter Neil Letson, and to present this letter on his behalf. From the earliest days of President Kennedy's Administration, Mr. Letson has been involved in plans for the restoration of The White House. His contributions to this project have been both valuable and productive. His interest and enthusiasms have been sources of pleasure to his colleagues. His knowledge and good taste as well as his consideration for everyone with whom he worked have all served to make this association an extremely satisfactory one for me. For these reasons I am pleased to write these few words."

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

      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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Horseman, Pass By

      New York: Harper and Brothers, 1961 First edition, first printing of the author's first novel. Signed and inscribed by the author on a loosely inserted business mailing card for the author's bookshop Booked Up in Washington, D.C.: "Dear Ruth- / Don't send. I'm never / here + it might get lost. / Stitch this in your book- And thanks for writing. I'm / glad you like it. Best / Larry McMurtry". A near fine or better copy, with light wear to the spine head, minor abrasion to the bottom right corner of the front board, a faint hint of spotting to the front pastedown, else very clean and bright; in an unclipped dust jacket, with light wear to the spine ends, minor chipping to the spine head, very light rubbing and smudging across, diagonal tear with minor loss to the lower right corner of the front panel. Overall, a bright and attractive copy. Horseman, Pass By is author, screenwriter, and bookseller Larry McMurtry's first novel. It is a novel "by a young Texan about a young Texan" that "paints a realistic picture of ranching Texas as it exists today." It won the Texas Institute of Letters Jesse H. Jones Award in 1962. McMurtry later helped write the screenplay for the Western film adaptation of Horseman, Pass By called Hud, which starred Paul Newman. Despite its Texan theme, the novel takes its title from W. B. Yeats' poem, "Under Ben Bulben," the last lines of which are also printed on the poet's grave.. Inscribed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Photograph Album]: Wheelus Air Base, Libya and Istanbul, Turkey (1961)

      [Tripoli; Istanbul] 1961 - Photo album. Oblong quarto. Approximately 14" x 10". Full cloth boards with a copper plate replica of the Selimiye Mosque (Edirne, Turkey) in relief on the front cover. Very good. Contains 86 black and white photographs neatly held in place on thick paper leaves with corner mounts, interleaved with embossed tissue guards. Laid-in at the rear are five 12" x 8" pencil sketches, three travel documents, and two additional photographs. The album was put together in 1961 by Charles Simpkins of the 848th Aircraft Control and Warning Squadron. It is divided into one section with 36 photographs (measuring 4.5" x 3.5") of the Wheelus U.S. Air Force Base in Libya (now Tripoli's Mitiga International Airport), and a second section with 50 photographs (measuring 5" x 3.5") of various street scenes taken in Istanbul, Turkey. Laid-in is Simpkins's Signed travel voucher from 1961.The Libyan set of 36 prints are identified with manuscript captions written in white ink on the paper sheet directly underneath each print. This historic base, known as the "Hell Hole" for its scorching heat, was built by the Italians in 1923 and was used by the Germans during the North African Campaign. Captured by the British in 1943, it was taken over by the Americans in 1945 and became home to 4,500 Americans at the height of the Cold War. The photographs document the base when it was being used for a covert airlift campaign during the Congo Crisis of the early 1960s. They include shots of USAF 124s and other planes on the flight line during the Airlift, and various street scenes taken throughout the base: Arab laborers, the Mirage restaurant, the NCO club, a Jewish Chapel, and much more. Also included are shots of Americans and Libyans at leisure on the beach.The second set of 50 prints is a fascinating series of informal street scenes taken in Istanbul while Simpkins was most likely on vacation in September 1961. As none are identified, one can easily get lost among these shots of Turkish vendors, peddlers, musicians, and horse drawn carts, as they make their way through street markets and carnivals, with the occasional view of a mosque's minarets in the background. Various candid portraits include children at play, boys playing foosball, and all manner of outdoor vendors selling their wares. The five laid in pencil sketches are reasonably accomplished drawings of a B-718 USAF jet in flight, a Brayer tank truck, a Mercedes 300 SL, an old Roadster, and a World War I British fighter plane.

        Thunderball

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1961. - FIRST EDITION, First Issue, Binding A. 8vo., pp. 254. Publisher's cloth-effect paper over boards with embossed skeleton hand design to upper board, gilt titles to spine. In original dust-wrapper illustrated by Richard Chopping. A very near fine copy in a fresh dust-wrapper which has some minimal edgewear and one discreet closed tear to upper. This copy was originally exported to Canada, purchased in Ottawa, and has remained in the same collection since. As was the practice with imported copies, the book has been price-clipped by the Canadian bookseller. 'Thunderball' is one of the most pivotal works of the series. It was in 'Thunderball' that Fleming first introduces the world to the ultimate Bond villian- Ernest Stavro Blofeld. Though Bond and Blofeld never actually meet here, it is in this book that Bond first battles the schemes of SPECTRE, Blofeld's criminal organisation. Is the first part of the so-called 'Blofeld' trilogy, and was followed by 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' (1963) and 'You Only Live Twice' (1964). Anb omnibus edition was published in 2010. The title was filmed in 1965, starring Sean Connery as 007, Claudine Auger as Domino and Adolfo Celi as Emilio Largo- SPECTRE's No.2. The later film 'Never Say Never Again', with Connery again as 007, was loosely based on this story. Gilbert A9a (1.1). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Very good copy of the book, cocked and staining to the boards, with the text clean. The Dust jacket is near fine with some spine tanning. This copy is inscribed by Yates: "For Helen Abdouch- with admiration and best wishes. Dick Yates 8/19/63." A scarce book with an early presentation inscription. [Attributes: First Edition]
