        President Nixon signed letter, "Mark Twain" and "China" sent to financier Jack Dreyfus

      Washington, DC, March 7, 1962. 6.75" x 9". "Typed Letter Signed ""RN"" as President, 1 page, 6.75"" x 9"". Washington, March 7, 1962. On White House stationery with the blind embossed presidential seal at top center. To financier Jack Dreyfus. With original postmarked White House envelope. Fine condition.In full, ""This is just a note to tell you how delighted I was to find the volumes comprising the complete works of Mark Twain which were awaiting me when I returned from the People's Republic of China. They have already been placed among the other treasured books in my personal library. It is always good to hear from you and I can assure you that this latest gesture of friendship means a great deal to me. Pat joins me in expressing warm personal regards.""On February 17, 1972, President Nixon left the United States and arrived in the People's Republic of China on February 21, 1972. He was the first President to visit a nation not recognized by the United States. Nixon returned to Washington on February 28th. One week later, he wrote the letter here offered.According to Jennifer Schuessler in The New York Times ""Sunday Book Review,"" October 29, 2010, ""Nixon had a thing for the man from Hannibal, Mo., and was even named a Knight of Mark Twain by the International Mark Twain Society when he was Vice President. In a monograph called 'Mark Twain and Richard M. Nixon' (foreword by Herbert Hoover), Cyril Clemens, Twain's distant cousin, recounts a 'pleasant afternoon talk' at the White House during which Nixon recited his lines from a grammar-school play based on 'Tom Sawyer' and praised the novel for purging from the youthful mind 'any desire to smoke, snatch a purse or an unhealthy craving for dope or other such fads.'""Financier Jack Dreyfus (1913-2009) was the founder of the Dreyfus Fund. In 1964, Life magazine called him the “Maverick Wizard Behind the Wall Street Lion,” in reference to the emblem of his fund and its aggressive marketing. Dreyfus, it said, was “the most singular and effective personality to appear in Wall Street since the days of Joseph Kennedy and Bernard Baruch.” His paternal grandfather was a first cousin of Alfred Dreyfus, the protagonist of the late 19th-century anti-Semitic scandal known as the Dreyfus Affair. Dreyfus sold his mutual fund company in 1970 and established the Dreyfus Health Foundation to pursue other medical applications for Dilantin which had cured his depression in the 1960s. In 2000, Dreyfus said that an account in The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon by Anthony Summers (New York: Viking, 2000) that he gave Dilantin to Richard Nixon in 1968 was correct. Dreyfus said he gave Nixon a bottle of 1,000 capsules of 100 milligrams each ''when his mood wasn't too good,'' and later gave him another bottle of 1,000 capsules."

        Jasenovac Death Camp Memories

      Zagreb: Private, 1962. Typewritten. Good. No Binding. 1st Edition. Croatian text. "It's been three years that I got out of the Jasenovac camp but the horror and terror is not left nor will I ever leave...only now dare to talk about it and in my old shoes my notes on what I finely printed there hid. First few lines from rare typed manuscript of WW2 Croatian concentration camp, 32pps w/ front letter dated 1962 and signed by Svarc whose text described unspeakable horrors. This was sent to Dr. Robert Albahary of Princeton, noted scholar and Jewish fugitive with his family from this area in Yugoslavia. He died in 2009. Wikipedia: Jasenovac concentration camp was an extermination camp established in Slavonia by the authorities of the Independent State of Croatia during World War II. The camp was established by the governing Ustase regime and not operated by Nazi Germany and was one of the largest concentration camps in Europe. From August 1941 it existed in marshland at the confluence of the Sava and Una rivers near the village of Jasenovac. It was dismantled in April 1945. It was "notorious for its barbaric practices and the large number of victims. In Jasenovac, the majority of victims were ethnic Serbs, whom the Ustase wanted to remove along with the Jews, anti-fascist or dissident Croatians, and Romanies. Jasenovac was a complex of five subcamps spread over 210 km2 (81 sq mi) on both banks of the Sava and Una rivers. The largest camp was the "Brickworks" camp at Jasenovac, about 100 km (62 mi) southeast of Zagreb. The overall complex included the Stara Gradiska sub-camp, the killing grounds across the Sava river at Donja Gradina, five work farms, and the Ustica gypsy camp. During and since World War II, there has been much debate and controversy regarding the number of victims killed at the Jasenovac concentration camp complex in its more than three-and-a-half years of operation. This is a rare piece of survival memories about this death camp that has been previously published. Croatian text on onion skin tissue paper..

        One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich].

      Flegon Press London 1962 - Octavo (24.2 x 16 cm). 67 pp., original printed wrappers.; owner's neat highlighting in pen to first 8 pp., wrappers slightly soiled. Fine example of the rare first "pirate" edition published abroad. The plot of the Solzhenitsin's very first published novel is set in a Soviet labour camp in the 1950s and describes a single day of an ordinary prisoner, Ivan Denisovich Shukhov. After more than half a century since its publication the significance and influence of the deceptively simple story remains unsurpassed. The novel was specifically mentioned in the Nobel Prize presentation speech when the Nobel Committee awarded Solzhenitsyn the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1970. The novel first appeared in print in November 1962 in the Soviet literary magazine Noviy Mir (New World). It was an extraordinary event in Soviet literary history since never before had an account of Stalinist repression been openly distributed. The editor of Novy Mir, Aleksandr Tvardovskiy, wrote in a short introduction for the issue, titled "Instead of a Foreword": The author chose an ordinary day in the life of a labour camp prisoner from a reveille until lock up. Still, this "ordinary" day can't but touch the hearts of the readers and let them feel overwhelming sorrow and pain for the fate of the people, who become so close and familiar through the pages of this novel. Even though the characters are fictional the novel has a very personal feel. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008) had first-hand experience of the Gulag, having been imprisoned from 1945 to 1953 for writing a derogatory comment in a letter to a fellow officer about the conduct of the war by Joseph Stalin, whom he called "the whiskered one".
