Typed letter signed: One page, quarto, White House stationery, 7 by 9 inches, typed and signed on recto. Typed order signed: one page, folio, heavy wove paper, 8-1/4 by 13 inches, typed and signed on recto. $8500.Typed letter signed by Kennedy as President to James Webb, second administrator of NASA, appointing him to the Distinguished Civilian Service Awards Board, the board that assisted President Kennedy in selecting ""persons to receive the President's Award for distinguished Federal civilian service."" Offered together with a typed copy of the order appointing Webb as Chairman of this board, also signed by Kennedy.James E. Webb (1906-92) was a Marine Corps pilot before attending law school and entering public service. His positions included Undersecretary of State and Director of the Bureau of the Budget, before Kennedy appointed him in February, 1961 as the second administrator of NASA. ""The post was considered a nonglamorous backwater in the Kennedy Administration, and more than a dozen other persons had turned down the appointmentÂ… Webb accepted, however, after being personally requested by President John KennedyÂ… Shortly after Webb took over NASA, unexpected events caused President Kennedy to give NASA a major role in his administration. In April 1961 the Soviet Union scored a technological victory by sending the first astronaut into orbit around the earthÂ… In order to boost national morale, Kennedy made a speech to Congress on 25 May 1961, in which he announced that the United States would embark on a policy designed to send a man to the moon by the end of the decade. The administration's commitment to a manned moon shot increased NASA's annual budget from $1 billion to more than $5 billion during the mid-1960s. Webb found himself heading a project whose scope and magnitude was comparable to the wartime Manhattan Project, which developed the atomic bomb. While presiding over the expansion of the agency, Webb helped guide its major decisions: choice of the Cape Kennedy launching site; development of the two-man Gemini project to precede the three-man Apollo moon shots; and selection of technology and contractors for the booster rockets, command modules, and earth station equipment"" (ANB). Indeed, Webb oversaw the first manned launches in the Mercury through Gemini programs, coordinated all the various research centers and facilitated the creation of the Manned Spacecraft Center (later the Johnson Space Center). Such was his untiring advocacy for Congressional support of NASA that President Johnson referred to him as ""Mr. Space."" Webb stepped down in October, 1968, just before the first manned Apollo flights.Kennedy's letter, dated May 25, 1961, reads, ""Dear Mr. Webb: Pursuant to Executive Order 10717, I hereby appoint you to serve as a member of the Distinguished Civilian Service Awards Board for the remainder of the term expiring June 26, 1963. I appreciate your willingness to serve on this Board which, under the terms of the Executive Order, will assist me in the selection of persons to receive the President's award for distinguished Federal civilian service. Sincerely, [signed] John Kennedy."" The typed copy of the executive order, also dated May 25, 1961, reads ""Order: Pursuant to the provisions of Section 3 of the Executive Order of June 27, 1957, establishing the President's Award for Distinguished Federal Civilian Service, I hereby designate James E. Webb as Chairman of the Distinguished Civilian Service Awards Board. [signed] John Kennedy.""

        Weegee by Weegee

      1961. First Edition . Signed. WEEGEE. Weegee by Weegee: An Autobiography. New York: Ziff-Davis, (1961). Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket. $2500.First edition of WeegeeÂ’s colorful autobiography, profusely illustrated with 116 black-and-white photographs, boldly inscribed: “To BernieÂ… Weegee 1962.”Polish-born Arthur Felig was dubbed “Ouija” by New York City cops in the 1930s for his uncanny ability to appear at crime scenes before the police did. A tabloid-news photographer for the Daily News, The Herald Tribune, and The Post, Weegee was known for his gritty, confrontational photos of the demi-monde. “The book that made Weegee famous, Naked City, was made into a film, and eventually, he went to Hollywood to make several short films and to act in others. But Weegee is best remembered as the chronicler of a particular place and time: New York City in the first half of the 20th century. He was a news photographer, and if we accept the definition of poetry as ‘news that stays news,Â’ he was a poet with a camera” (Roth, 118). This autobiography includes his account of the success of Naked City and his subsequent sojourn in Hollywood. As Weegee died of a brain tumor in 1968, signed copies of this work are scarce. Book very nearly fine with slight soiling to inscription page, dust jacket near-fine with a few small closed tears and light rubbing. A near-fine copy, quite scarce inscribed.

        The Death And Life of Great American Cities.

      Random House, New York 1961 - First edition of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the half title page to her editor, "Best wishes to a splendid publisher and friend, David Kent. And a splendid dinner date, Affectionately Jane Jacobs Toronto Jan. 2002." Fine in a very good dust jacket with some rubbing and wear. An outstanding association copy on one of the most influential books on urban planning ever published. The Death and Life of Great American Cities was described by The New York Times as "perhaps the most influential single work in the history of town planning. . . . [It] can also be seen in a much larger context. It is first of all a work of literature; the descriptions of street life as a kind of ballet and the bitingly satiric account of traditional planning theory can still be read for pleasure even by those who long ago absorbed and appropriated the book’s arguments." Robert Caro has cited Jacobs' book as the strongest influence on The Power Broker, his Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Robert Moses. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

The stunning original first edition, first state dust jacket is in beautiful condition having benefited from very slight restoration to the spine and corner outer tips by an expert paper conservator and as such presents in near fine condition. The jacket has strong, bright vibrant colors still retaining the strong red/orange tones to the spine (which is most unusual as this title is usually found with faded spines). The jacket has no edgewear, no stains, no rips, no chips, no rubbing, no fading and no foxing. The jacket is NOT price clipped and has a stated price of $3.95 on the front inside flap and no ISBN number to the rear panel. A remarkable, clean, crisp exceptional example of this title, with a very early signature and drawing by Roald Dahl! Outstanding presentation with the near fine dust jacket. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please see our Abe store for other rare signed children's books [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Thunderball

      1961. First Edition . FLEMING, Ian. Thunderball. London: Jonathan Cape, (1961). Octavo, original brown paper boards, original dust jacket. $3200.First edition of FlemingÂ’s ninth Bond novel, featuring the first appearance of the superspyÂ’s memorable nemesis, the villainous mastermind behind SPECTRE, Ernst Blofeld, who steals two nuclear warheads and threatens the world.""Thunderball represented a new departure [for the Bond series], with the introduction of SPECTRE and of Ernst Blofeld, a commanding villain who was to reappear. This gave a measure of continuity to the later Bond novelsÂ… Thunderball worked well as an adventure storyÂ… the theme of the theft of atom bombs seemed pertinent and modern"" (Black, 49, 55). As he had in From Russia, With Love (1957) and The Spy Who Loved Me (1962), Fleming considered permanently doing away with his super-spy character: ""I shall definitely kill off Bond with my next book—better a poor bang than a rich whimper!"" (Lycett, 364). Bond, of course, survives this adventure which, due to credit and rights controversy, was adapted twice to the screen: under the present title in 1965 and as Never Say Never Again in 1983—both times starring Sean Connery; in the 1965 film Claudine Auger played Domino, while Kim Basinger played that role in 1983. Gilbert A9a (1.1). Biondi & Pickard, 46-47. Text clean. Spine gilt bright. Dust jacket price clip slightly affecting text, light rubbing to rear panel. A wonderful copy in very nearly fine condition.

        Stranger in a Strange Land

      1961. First Edition . HEINLEIN, Robert. Stranger in a Strange Land. New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, (1961). Octavo, original green cloth, original dust jacket. $7200.First edition of HeinleinÂ’s most famous and influential novel.""An amazing, iconoclastic and complex satire of hypocrisy in sex and religionÂ… A radical departure from conventional science fiction"" (Patterson, 29, 48). ""It reached large audiences farther away from his science fiction roots than anything else [Heinlein] wrote, and inspired insurgencies both right and left"" (Anatomy of Wonder II-518). The novel won Heinlein his third Hugo Award—and while it strikes many readers as wildly divergent from his previous Hugo-winning book, Starship Troopers (1959), the author once claimed that the two works explored the same theme: ""love and duty—and how they are related to the survival of our race."" First issue, in green cloth with code C22 in the gutter of page 408 (Currey, 193). Currey, 193. Smiley, 36. Book extremely good, with mild toning and light soiling to cloth and tiny repair to head of spine. Bright dust jacket with only minor restoration and a bit of toning to spine. A most attractive copy.
