        Inaugural Address.

      [Washington, DC: United States Government Publishing Office,], 1961. Octavo. Original cream cloth, gilt-lettered spine, presidential seal gilt to front board. In the original matching slipcase. With a small wire-stitched booklet containing Kennedy's State of the Union Message, 30 January 1961, laid in. Title page printed in blue and black, dated printed in blue, presidential seal and calligraphic initial gilt. The faintest of markings to boards, faint toning to pastedowns from adhesive used in binding. A superb copy. First edition, presentation copy, of one of the most famous speeches of the 20th century, inscribed by Kennedy "To Mary and Ray Gallagher, with warm regards from their friend! John Kennedy" on the front free endpaper; one of an unknown number of copies printed for private distribution among Kennedy's friends and associates. With an autograph letter signed by John Connally as chairman of the Texas Democratic Executive Committee, presenting Mary Gallagher with this "specially prepared, embossed copy of this inspiring message", the letter dated 17 February 1961 and also enclosing a copy of Kennedy's first State of the Union Message, which is laid in; also included is a detailed letter of authenticity, signed by Gallagher. An extraordinarily intimate presidential association copy. Mary Gallagher (née Barelli) was sworn in as Kennedy's senatorial aide in 1953, and served as Jackie Kennedy's personal secretary from 1956 to 1964, when Kennedy left Washington for Manhattan. Connally was elected governor of Texas in 1963, and was sitting in front of Kennedy in the presidential car at the moment of his assassination, and was himself seriously wounded by the same bullet that killed JFK. Gallagher was riding a few cars behind, and in her 1969 memoir, My Life with Jacqueline Kennedy, recalled how she had waited outside the operating theatre with the first lady, who had refused to change out of her blood-soaked clothes. Gallagher's memoir was viewed by many as an often scurrilous piece of self-justification, a reviewer for the Chicago Tribune remarking that "The author may not be aware of it but the reader comes away convinced she was herself in love with JFK and resentful of Jacqueline … She was outrageously underpaid, undoubtedly overworked, and obviously a competent and efficient secretary. What is incredible is that she suffered all this for eleven years without exercising the logical option of quitting". Details included Jackie's exceptional stinginess toward others, in contrast to the extravagance of her personal expenditure, which JFK allegedly requested Gallagher to monitor on his behalf. Kennedy's inaugural address is considered "one of the finest speeches in American history. By invoking the American dream and extending its promise to the rest of the world, Kennedy's speech was an inspirational call to action that resonates even today … The power of Kennedy's inaugural speech lies in its brevity and lyrical succinctness — qualities common among Wilson's, Lincoln's and Churchill's most remembered speeches. Like the times reflected in these previous speeches, the late 1950s and early 1960s were fraught with crisis. The cold war had been escalating since the mid-1940s, and the US civil rights movement was reaching a fever pitch. Marked by an idealistic tone that elevated the speech above pessimistic Cold War rhetoric, Kennedy's inaugural address relied on the hope and optimism of a new generation" (Gale, A Study Guide for John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address, pp. 1-2). It is best remembered for the line, "Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country". Judging by the number of copies extant it would appear that no more than 100 were printed.

        Young Adam (First UK Edition, inscribed in the year of publication)

      London: William Heinemann, 1961. First UK Edition and first edition in hardcover. INSCRIBED by the author to noted bookseller Anthony Rota in 1961 on the leaf facing the title page: "For Anthony Rota / In appreciation of his many acts of friendship / Alexander Trocchi / September 1961." The only inscribed copy of the hardcover edition of this title--the author's masterpiece--that we have ever encountered. A beat novel, originally published as an Olympia Press paperback with racier content, this being the more "literary" version that Trocchi was subsequently encouraged to release. Over time, both versions have been assessed as having literary merit. Basis for the superb 2003 film directed by Alexander MacKenzie and starring Ewan McGregor and Tilda Swinton. Near Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. An attractive copy.

        JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH

      - New York: Knopf, 1961. First edition. A fine copy bound in red cloth with gilt spine lettering and in immaculate condition in a near-fine dustwrapper which is price-clipped and has a slight smudge on the front panel. The red background on the spine is bright with no fading and the book conforms to first-printing points--"bound by H. Wolfe" on the colophon, no ISBN on the rear panel, lovely and illustrations by Nancy Ekholm Burkert. The book was made into a highly-successful British-American musical fantasy film directed by Henry Selick. In this classic of children's literature, Dahl writes of a young English orphan boy whose parents are killed by a ghostly rhinocerus. James gains entry into a gigantic, magical peach and experiences a wild and surreal adventure with seven magically-altered garden bugs as they set off on a journey to escape from James' two mean and cruel aunts.
