        Phantom Tollbooth

      New York: Epstein & Carroll, 1961. First edition of this modern classic. Octavo, original blue cloth. Fine in a very good first issue dust jacket that shows shows some chipping. Signed by the author with the added words, "From the Lands Beyond Norton Juster". Also signed by Jules Feiffer, the illustrator. A much nicer copy than usual. 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.

        Typed Letter Signed from J.D. Salinger to his publisher, dated March 10, 1961, discussing Erich Maria Remarque and Paulette Goddard

      N.p.: N.p., 1961. Typed letter signed, dated March 10, 1961 in Salinger's home of Windsor, VT, to the author's editor at Little, Brown, Ned Kelly, and signed "Jerry." & & The author muses on a recently read book (taken in under his legendary sun shelter), followed by a beautiful, stray memory, and finally, a bit of simple wisdom: "I think Erich Maria Remmarque is published by Little, Brown--I know he used to be, at any rate. I took an old copy of THREE COMRADES out to my sun shelter in the snow, just a week or so ago. I'd forgotten what a beautiful, touching book it is. I think his war books and post-war-rubble books are better than anyone's. His are the onlyones that move me, anyway. I saw him once, with Paulette Goddard, at a restaurant, and nearly went over, but thought better of it. I don't think it's possible for one writer to ay another an acceptable compliment. Something always comes out wrong."& & Single leaf, recto only, with the file notation "SALINGER" in red pencil at the top left and the date (1961) circled in red as well. Near Fine, with two faint horizontal folds from mailing.

        Petite histoire du soleil et de la pluie. Dessins et aquarelles de Jean-Jacques Lévêque et de Licia Bertini, en collaboration avec Gianni Bertini et Pierre-André Benoit sur le livre d'or du restaurant Camille Renault

      Puteaux, 1961. Dessin. Illus. by Jean-Jacques Lévêque - Licia Bertini. Très bon. Aucune reliure. Signé par l'illustrateur. [Circa 1961]. 7 pp. (6 compositions et une page de signatures) sur 5 ff de 32,5 x 25 cm : 2 dessins au feutre et à l'aquarelle signés l'un Licia, l'autre Licia Bertini, une composition au feutre et à l'aquarelle et deux aquarelles légendées au feutre signées Jean-Jacques Lévêque, un dessin au feutre monogramé M.D. (Monique Durand) et légendé par Jean-Jacques Lévêque. On trouve, au revers de la composition "Petite histoire du soleil et de la pluie", les signatures, du même stylo feutre, de l'éditeur Pierre-André Benoit, du peintre Gianni Bertini, de Monique Durand et celle, curieuse, de "M. Lévêque de Fos", qui est soit celle de la mère de J.-J. Lévêque, Marguerite Fos, qui tenait avec son fils la librairie et galerie "Le soleil dans la tête" qui publiait la revue "Sens plastique", soit celle, déguisée, de son fils, l'écrivain et critique d'art J.-J. Lévêque, qui ajoute ces mots à l'un de ses dessins : "le soir est défendu aux adolescents qui aiment la pluie". Belle et amusante collaboration entre ces convives. Pierre-André Benoit a publié plusieurs livres illustrés par Bertini ainsi que des textes de Jean-Jacques Lévêque. Bertini a illustré deux textes de Lévêque : "Douves" (PAB, 1959) et "Stèle pour Adam de la halle" (Editions du castel rose, 1962). Licia Bertini était l'épouse de Gianni Bertini. Nous ne sommes pas parvenus à identifier Monique Durand. Au revers de la composition signée Licia se trouve une honnête composition aux feutres de Franck Innocent dédicacée à Camille Renault. Signatures sans cohérence au revers de deux dessins et en tête d'un autre. Grand collectionneur et mécène, Camille Renault (1904-1984) tint le restaurant "Big Boy" à Puteaux de 1925 à 1967. Une boîte contenant papier, pinceaux et aquarelle y était à disposition pour les clients, artistes débutants ou confirmés, amis, voisins ou de passage..

        Moviegoer, The

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1961. First Edition, as stated. Hardcover. Fine/Fine-. First Edition (so stated) of the author's first (and finest) novel, one of only some 3,000 copies printed. 8vo: [10],244pp. Publisher's red cloth spine lettered in gilt and decorated in black, slate-gray paper-covered boards decorated in black, top edge stained slate, fore-edge untrimmed; in a First-Issue typographic dust jacket with $3.95 and publication code "0561" on the front flap. A Fine, unread copy, square, tight and unmarked, in a just about Fine dust jacket, with a single shallow chip to spine head and trace of rubbing to the toe. Superb collector's copy. 'What is the nature of the search? you ask. Really it is very simple; at least for a fellow like me. So simple that it is often overlooked. The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life.' Percy’s novel, his first, is a philosophical quest in which the question marks are worn lightly. Binx Bolling is a New Orleans investment broker who chafes over the difficulty of bringing life into high relief. Mere existence lacks flavor. Movies give him a glimpse of a higher possibility. That and sex with his succession of pretty secretaries. But he longs for a more enduring solution. You marvel at how lightly he addresses his displeasures—Percy’s book is like Sartre’s Nausea without the nausea. But Binx is still a man who always has his despair at the ready, and his story can shift toward the tragic with ease." (Time 100) Percy described it thus: the story of "a young man who had all the advantages of a cultivated old-line southern family: a feel for science and art, a liking for girls, sports cars, and the ordinary things of the culture, but who nevertheless feels himself quite alienated from both worlds, the old South and the new America." Winner of the National Book Award. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.
