        One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

      London: Methuen & Co, 1962. First British edition of Kesey's classic first book. Octavo, original cloth. Lengthily inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Joe: As I think I said on March 7, 1984, 'You got a nice daughter, Joe.' Ken Kesey, Sept. 1985." The recipient, became friends with Kesey after his daughter, who was a nurse treated Kesey's son in a fatal accident. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. Jacket design by Kenneth Farnhill. Published in February 1962, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was a great critical and commercial success. Over the subsequent decades the book's reputation and readership swelled as millions recognized Kesey's psychiatric ward as a not-so-fantastic metaphor for a modern world in which bureaucracy and technology combine to diminish humanity, individuality and diversity. Adapted to the stage in 1963, with Kirk Douglas in the lead, and was the basis for the highly successful 1975 film directed by Milos Forman and starring Jack Nicholson. Considered to be one of the greatest films ever made, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ranks number 33 on the American Film Institute's 100 Years, 100 Movies list. It was the second to win all five major Academy Awards (Best Picture, Actor in Lead Role, Actress in Lead Role, Director, and Screenplay) following It Happened One Night in 1934, an accomplishment not repeated until 1991 by The Silence of the Lambs. It also won numerous Golden Globe and BAFTA Awards.

        Typed Letter Signed [TLS]

      Oxford: np, 1962. First edition. framed. Very Good. SIGNED LETTER BY J.R.R. TOLKIEN REFERRING TO A POSSIBLE SEQUEL TO THE LORD OF THE RINGS. Written from Tolkien's Sandfield Road (Oxford) residence and addressed to Miss Miriam P. Hirsch of 677 West End Avenue, New York, NY, the letter, dated 16th April, 1962, reads in full: Dear Miss Hirsch, I am very sorry that my answer to your letter has been so long delayed. Thank you very much for writing to me. I am very pleased to hear that my works have given pleasure but I hope you will excuse me from writing more now. I am very busy and have little time to spare if I am ever to put ready for publication the sequel to The Lord of the Rings which I am being pressed to produce. Yours sincerely, [signed]J.R.R. Tolkien After the success of The Hobbit (1937), Tolkien's publishers (Allen and Unwin) requested he work on a sequel, which would, of course become the epic Lord of the Rings (1954-55). It was no wonder, then, that after the immense popularity of the Lord of the Rings Tolkien was implored to continue the saga of Middle Earth in the form of another sequel. In 1962, at the time of this letter, he was contemplating the direction of his new work and in this letter is most likely referring to what was to become known as "The New Shadow", a story, unfortunately, that would remain unfinished. Tolkien explained the fate of "The New Shadow" in a letter from 1964 to Colin Bailey: I did begin a story placed about 100 years after the Downfall [of Mordor], but it proved both sinister and depressing. Since we are dealing with Men it is inevitable that we should be concerned with the most regrettable feature of their nature: their quick satiety with good. So that the people of Gondor in times of peace, justice and prosperity, would become discontented and restless-while the dynasts descended from Aragorn would become just kings and governors-like Denethor or worse. I found that even so early there was an outcrop of revolutionary plots, about a centre of secret Satanistic religion; while Gondorian boys were playing at being Orcs and going round doing damage. I could have written a 'thriller' about the blog and its discovery and overthrow-but it would be just that. Not worth doing. (Carpenter, ed. Letters, 344). One page (8x10 inches). Headington, Oxford: April 16, 1962. Archivally matted and framed with a photo of Tolkien in the woods to an overall size of 13.75 x 21. Usual mailing folds, otherwise fine.

        Vier handgeschreven brieven, drie handgeschreven briefkaarten en drie handgeschreven gedichten aan de redactie van De Gids.

      Diverse formaten. Recto en deels verso. Gesigneerd 'Hendrik de Vries' en gedateerd 'Haren 2 December 1962', 'Haren 5 Jan 1963', 'Haren 27 Jan 1963', 'Haren 28 December 1963', 'Haren 8 Jan. 1964', 'Haren 5 Juli 1964' en '19 Juli 1964'. Met twee originele enveloppen. Verhelderende - soms pittige, dan weer bescheiden - brieven van de dichter aan verschillende redacteuren van De Gids. De eerste brief is een weloverwogen weigering van de kersverse Constantijn Huygensprijswinnaar van het verzoek van de redactie om een bijdrage over 'het dichterschap': 'wanneer ik pas een artikel in die geest had geschreven zou dat trouwens het improvisatiekarakter van mijn spreken bij de prijsuitreiking kunnen schaden'. Wel voegt De Vries vier kwatrijnen bij, onder de titel 'Dichterschap'.In de twee daaropvolgende briefkaarten is de dichter enigszins ongeduldig. Hij heeft nog geen drukproef ontvangen en ontvangt zijn inzending graag terug, als deze niet wordt geplaatst. Explicatief: 'Wie impulsief en tamelijk improvisatorisch werkt, moet het als vanzelfsprekend aanvaarden dat hij over de waarde van het emotioneel voortgebrachte pas veel later kan oordelen dan wie er tegenover staat als tegenover iets nieuws'.Het derde schrijven begeleidt een nieuwe 'reeks-van-vijf' gedichten, 'Retraite', en een langer vers, 'Nocturne', nadat 'Dichterschap' werd afgewezen. Beide gedichten zijn in handschrift bijgevoegd, evenals een drukproef van 'Retraite' met een handgeschreven correctie door de dichter. Blijkbaar liet plaatsing van de gedichten op zich wachten: de dichter stuurt een zakelijk kaartje naar de redactie, waarin hij om terugzending van 'Retraite' vraagt. En: 'U kunt ook volstaan met de mededeling dat deze bijdrage niet wordt opgenomen'.In de laatste brief verbaast De Vries zich over 'Uw mening dat ik U een verbitterde brief zou hebben geschreven'. Hij verklaart zich nader: 'Niets is voor mij gewoner dan dat een in mijn ogen gelaagd werk door anderen minder gewaardeerd wordt, en vaak zagen redacties, ook die van De Gids, het beter dan ik'. Nederig slot: 'U behoeft zich niet voor snelle plaatsing in te spannen'.Bijgevoegd: doorslagen van vijf brieven van de redactiesecretaris aan De Vries.Voorts: notitievelletje met aantekeningen van De Gids-redacteuren Ed. Hoornik en Bert Voeten over 'Dichterschap'. Niet mals: 'Gelukkig maar één blz. Vóór Eddy' en 'Dit is ontzettend! Kunnen we De Vries toch niet aandoen? BV'.

        A Clockwork Orange

      London: Heinemann, 1962. First edition. Original cloth, original dust jacket. Fine/Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of one of the classics of the 20th century. "Like 1984, this is a book in which an entire social order is implied through language. And what language! To hint at the vile universe of the 15-year-old delinquent Alex and his murderous buddies, Burgess created 'nadsat,' a rich futuristic patois. 'Sinny' for 'cinema.' 'Viddy' for 'see,' 'horrorshow' for 'good' - from the Russian, khorosho, which gives you some idea of which political system has prevailed. The words locate him in a world of corrupted values, violence and boundless infantile indulgence. (His drug is 'milk plus.') When Alex is apprehended by the authorities and subjected to psychological conditioning to make him nauseated at any impulse towards violence, Burgess's book becomes a meditation on whether a world in which evil can be freely chosen might still be preferable to one in which goodness is compelled. Stanley Kubrick's coldly magnificent 'sinny' adaptation has sometimes threatened to overshadow this great novel. Don't let it happen" (Richard Lacayo, All-Time 100 Novels). The basis for the classic 1971 Stanley Kubrick film and with a final chapter that was omitted from US editions until 1986. First Issue: with black cloth binding and dust jacket with "16S NET" sticker and wider flaps. London: Heinemann, 1962. Octavo, original black cloth, original pictorial dust jacket by Barry Trengrove. Small ownership signature on front free endpaper. Book fine; dust jacket with mild fading to spine (as often), nearly invisible repaired closed tear near base of spine. An excellent copy of one of the most influential novels of the century.

        A Wrinkle In Time

      New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1962. Fourth printing of the author's Newbery award-winning novel. Octavo, original cloth. Warmly inscribed by Madeleine L'Engle on the title page. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Ellen Ruskin. At once a science fiction story, a philosophical meditation on the nature of Evil and Love and a coming-of-age novel, Wrinkle broke new ground in what was considered appropriate for young readers. Rejected by several publishers for being too complex, this title has amply proven L'Engle's belief that 'children are excited by new ideas' and has been credited with bringing science fiction into the mainstream of children's literature. This is L'Engle's best work" (Silvey, 401). A Wrinkle in Time is one of the most significant novels of our time. "A book that every person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place" (Cory Doctorow). It went on to win a Newbery Medal, Sequoyah Book Award, and Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, and was runner-up for the Hans Christian Andersen Award. It is the basis for the film directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Reese Witherspoon, Zach Galifianakis, and Oprah Winfrey.

        A Clockwork Orange

      London: Heinemann, 1962. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/good. Stated first printing, complete in the first state black boards and in the first state jacket with the wider panels, though clipped. Wrapped in removable mylar. A shade of fading on the spine edge, rubbed on the back panel (seemingly where a retangular sticker once was), and with four ghost marks from tape on the flaps. A square and sound copy with the black boards free of wear and still with bright gold lettering. No foxing to the pages. The ghost marks from the tape appear on the end papes as well. There is also some heavy erasing to the back end page the lead to some rubbing -- possibly from a restoration. Putting it all together this may have been a library copy, although there aren't any stamps that indicate it as such. I've done my best to photograph all of the wear so you'll see that if this were a library copy, it's one that (1) was poorly marked, and (2) hardly circulated.

        Place of Negligence in the Law of Torts. (SIGNED BY ABRAHAM HARARI TO THE DEDICATEE, D. D. RAPHAEL.)

      Sydney: Law Book Co. of Australasia, 1962. - FIRST EDITION. Original cloth. Inscribed: 'D. D. Raphael/with best wishes/A. Harari'. 'To D. D.' (printed on p. iii). The tortured academic career of Harari, who died of a brain tumor in 1972, is perhaps best understood in the context of the much more famous legal philosopher H. L. A. [Herbert Lionel Adolphus] Hart (1907-1992), the longtime focus of Harari's intense rage described in detail in Nicola Lacey, A Life of H. L. A. Hart: The Nightmare and the Noble Dream (Oxford, 2005). In the mid-1960s, Hart 'had been one of the examiners of an Israeli student, Abraham Harari's, doctoral thesis. Harari's work was on the place of negligence in the law of torts (the law of civil wrongs leading to compensation). It included some criticisms of Herbert's and Tony Honoré's arguments in Causation and the Law. It was referred back for substantial revision and resubmission. When finally resubmitted, the thesis was not awarded the doctoral degree. Harari, who had in any event been reluctant to modify a thesis to which he was strongly committed, felt that the decision was unjust. He blamed it on Herbert, and attributed it to Herbert's intolerance of criticism and of views different from his own. . . . [Harari] secured a post at the University of Tasmania, and in 1962 he published a book arising from his doctoral thesis: The Place of Negligence in the Law of Torts. He then moved to a post at Dundee. But the sense of injustice continued to rankle, and Harari worked out his resentment in several ways. He wrote Herbert a series of increasingly accusing and hostile letters. These letters have not survived, but they must have been extreme: Herbert confided to Brian Simpson that he feared Harari might try to kill him. Harari also began to write an essay, 'H. L. A. Hart and his Concept of Law (1961): An Open Letter to a Teacher of Jurisprudence'. The 'Open Letter' evolved in a number of stages: the original part was 15 pages long, but by the time Harari had finished it in 1972 it had reached 96 pages. It is made up of a coruscating and minute critique not only of Herbert's book but also of Herbert himself, interspersed with illustrative poems, biblical quotations, references to a wide range of philosophical sources from Aristotle to Wittgenstein via Hobbes, Hume, Mill, and Russell, asides to fellow teachers of jurisprudence, and quotations from reviews critical of The Concept of Law. . . . It would not have taken any special insight on the reader's part to recognize that there was a personal dimension to the attack: Are my strictures harsh, dear colleague? Do you detect something 'personal' in these lines? Would you rebuke me for the use of immoderate terms? You are perceptive. Would that you were just a little more perceptive! It is possible to criticise or attack a man's work without by implication criticising or attacking the man? Surely it is better to be conscious of and honest about what one is doing . . . Nor would it have taken a psychiatrist to realize that there was something obsessive about Harari's critique. By page 6 of his letter, he was still labouring over page 2 of The Concept of Law; by page 11, he had reached page 3. Herbert, however, was seldom a person to take adversity lightly, and he agonized miserably over how to respond to Harari's missives. . . . In the end, he followed friends' advice not to get further involved. What upset him was not so much any real concern about damage to his intellectual reputation as to the personal nature of the attack. Harari's story is a tragic one: not only because he devoted his considerable intellectual gifts to such bitter and unconstructive ends, but also because he turned out to be suffering from a brain tumour. He died shortly after the completion of the Open Letter. The Letter was never published, but remains in the possession of several recipients and has been deposited in a small number of university libraries' (Lacey, pp. 274-7).

Published by George Allen & Unwin, 1962 & 1963, 1st Editions, 12th imp/10th imp/10th imp. An exceptionally nice set of first editions of this classic of fantasy literature. The set is housed in a custom full leather slipcase to show and protect. The set is in Near Fine condition, with small previous owners initials to the top corner of the front free endpaper, no other writing in the books. There are tape ghosts from the old style dustjacket protectors that have kept the dustjackets in beautiful condition, and also a mark to the flap of The Fellowship and The Two Towers, that may have been caused by the same tape, at least the position makes it appear that way. There is no foxing or offsetting in any of the books or to the endpapers as is common. The exterior cloth is clean and unmarked, with the gilt untarnished and bright. The books are clean and tight, and the maps are attached in each volume, and show no extra folds, but the first two have a minor tear at the mounting flap, now neatly repaired.

Erstausg.

      319 S., Kl.-8, Pappband d. Zt. mit goldgepr. Rückenschild Kloß 1962 Wolfstieg 42988 Caillet 11070 Ackermann V/319: "Selten". - Richtet sich gegen den 1780 in Österreich entstandenen Hochgrad-Orden der "Asiatischen Brüder". Nach Lennhoff,Posner,Binder war die Organisation "nichts anderes als eine Absplitterung der Rosenkreuzer, in der das kirchliche, ja auch christliche Element fast völlig ausgeschaltet war." Der Inhalt der Lehre sollte die "echten Geheimnisse und moralisch-physischen Aufschlüsse der Hieroglyphen des Ordens der Ritter und Brüder Freimaurer" beinhalten. Die Zahlensymbolik des Martinismus wurde dabei mit kabbalistischen Elementen der Rosenkreuzer verbunden. "Auf den beiden höchsten Ordensstufen werde Geistesbeschwörung getrieben". - Enthält: "Mystischen Allegorien und Hieroglyphen" in drei Heften [kmpl.] u. "Maurerische Phantasien und Träume eines Pilgers auf seinem Durchzuge durchs Land Bochim in den letzten sieben Monaten des Jahres 1803, nebst etlichen ernsthaften Geisterhebungen." - Etwas berieben u. leicht bestossen zusätzliches Rückenschild mit Standortnr.

        The Jerusalem Windows

      George Braziller 1962 - George Braziller, New York, 1962. Marc Zakharovich Chagall, born Moishe Zakharovich Shagal, (1887 – 28 March 1985) was a Russian-French artist of Belarusian Jewish origin. An early modernist, he was associated with several major artistic styles and created works in virtually every artistic format, including painting, book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints. He has been respected as the world's preeminent Jewish artist. Using the medium of stained glass, he produced windows for the cathedrals of Reims and Metz. In 1960, he began creating twelve stained glass windows for the synagogue of Hebrew University's Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem. It was decided that the windows, representing the twelve tribes of Israel, were to be filled with stained glass. Chagall envisaged the synagogue as "a crown offered to the Jewish Queen", and the windows as "jewels of translucent fire. This book is beautifully illustrated with 104 plates (64 in full color), and has two original color lithographs done expressly for this work. This book, 211 pages, is lacking the dust jacket and slipcase and the spine is faded. But internally the book is fine and all illustrations are brilliant. The two lithographs are worth the price of this book. This large and heavy book will require additional postage. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Clockwork Orange

      London: Heinemann, 1962. First edition. Original cloth, original dust jacket. Fine/Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of one of the classics of the 20th century. "Like 1984, this is a book in which an entire social order is implied through language. And what language! To hint at the vile universe of the 15-year-old delinquent Alex and his murderous buddies, Burgess created 'nadsat,' a rich futuristic patois. 'Sinny' for 'cinema.' 'Viddy' for 'see,' 'horrorshow' for 'good' - from the Russian, khorosho, which gives you some idea of which political system has prevailed. The words locate him in a world of corrupted values, violence and boundless infantile indulgence. (His drug is 'milk plus.') When Alex is apprehended by the authorities and subjected to psychological conditioning to make him nauseated at any impulse towards violence, Burgess's book becomes a meditation on whether a world in which evil can be freely chosen might still be preferable to one in which goodness is compelled. Stanley Kubrick's coldly magnificent 'sinny' adaptation has sometimes threatened to overshadow this great novel. Don't let it happen" (Richard Lacayo, All-Time 100 Novels).The basis for the classic 1971 Stanley Kubrick film and with a final chapter that was omitted from US editions until 1986. First Issue: with black cloth binding and dust jacket with "16S NET" sticker and wider flaps.London: Heinemann, 1962. Octavo, original black cloth, original pictorial dust jacket by Barry Trengrove. Small ownership signature on front free endpaper. Book fine; dust jacket with mild fading to spine (as often), nearly invisible repaired closed tear near base of spine. An excellent copy of one of the most influential novels of the century.
