        NAKED LUNCH - TOGETHER WITH THE RARE PROSPECTUS

      Grove Press, New York 1962 - First Printing, one of 3,500 copies. Octavo; black cloth and paper-covered boards, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; black topstain; dustjacket; 255pp, [1]. Fine in a very Near Fine dustjacket, unclipped, with a single tiny tear at base of spine. Together with a Fine example of the publisher's 16pp prospectus. In 1962, Grove Press issued a promotional booklet to accompany the November 20, 1962 American publication of 'Naked Lunch,' a scarce and desirable piece of ephemera. Publisher Barney Rosset printed the prospectus with an obscenity trial in mind, with the entire document reading like a legal argument to establish 'Naked Lunch‘s' literary merit before a courtroom. The pamphlet opens with a short essay by Terry Southern, followed by a critical piece by E.S. Seldon. The remainder of the pamphlet contains an eight page selection from the novel. A terrific piece of ephemera that is rarely offered together with the novel, and one that is essential to understanding the early publication history of 'Naked Lunch,' the establishment of the book’s critical reception, and the novel’s many court battles over the years. To the best of our knowledge, the two essays contained within have not been printed in any other format. A superior copy of this Beat Generation cornerstone, and basis for the bizarre 1991 David Cronenberg film starring Peter Weller, Judy Davis, and Ian Holm. Maynard & Miles A2.b.

        [High School Yearbook]: Old Gold Book

      Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas: Hot Springs High School. 1962-1964. First. First and only editions. Three volumes. Folios. Some modest wear, student inscriptions, and dampstain to two page of one volume (1963), mostly fine in custom cloth clamshell case. All three of Bill Clinton's High School yearbooks (he attended a junior high school which went through 9th grade). As one might imagine, "Billy" Clinton (as he is called) is all over the books. In his first year there are about half a dozen photos. The next year about ten and by Senior year there are nearly 20 different photographs of him, including the famous photo of him shaking hands with J.F.K. at Boys' Nation, as well as first chair saxophone in the All-State band, and in various other clubs and honor societies. Mercifully, these yearbooks have an index to students, but we have found some instances where they have failed to note his appearance in the index. Although a relatively large school -- approximately 350 students in Clinton's class, it would be difficult to assemble another set today. .

        THE ZEBRA-STRIPED HEARSE

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1962., 1962. First edition. Fine bright, tight, copy in a fine, unfaded dust jacket. When Isobel Blackwell comes calling unexpectedly on Lew Archer just minutes before her husband is scheduled to meet with the detective, she expresses concern for her stepdaughter, Harriet. The young woman is about to come into a large trust fund, and she wants to marry a handsome, penniless artist named Burke Damis. Isobel has no objection to the marriage, but Harriet's father, Colonel Blackwell, is staunchly opposed. He asks Archer to investigate Damis, and Archer agrees, partly because he's attracted to Mrs. Blackwell. Murders past and present crowd the investigation as various leads take Archer to Mexico, Lake Tahoe, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Los Angeles. The Zebra-Striped Hearse is indeed colored black and white, but the intertwining relationships of the characters range across many shades of gray. An exceptional copy.

        Silent Spring

      Boston, Houghton Mifflin Company; Cambridge, The Riverside Press,, 1962. Drawings by Lois and Louis Darling. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt, patterned endpapers, top edge yellow. With the dust jacket. Very light wear to ends of spine and corners in the dust jacket with shallow chipping to ends of spine, moderate wear to front panel edges. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, and a signed copy of the book that ignited the environmental movement. Signed by the author on the half title page. Carson, a nature writer and Editor-in-Chief for the Fish & Wildlife service, had long been concerned about the widespread use of DDT and other pesticides, but lack of interest from magazine publishers led her to put aside her idea for expose. When the book finally appeared in 1962, only a year before her death, its great strength was not in presenting new information ?- most of the data she included was already known to the scientific community ?- but in making the information accessible to non-scientists and instilling a sense of fear and urgency in the public. Not only an indictment of DDT, her book challenged the very foundations of post-war modernity and western capitalism, and forced humans to reconsider their relationship to the world around them.
