        Symmetries of Baryons and Mesons

      Lancaster, PA: American Institute of Physics, 1962. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good. First Edition. [2], 1130 pages. Light brown buckram binding with gilt spine lettering, bumped at head of spine. Physical Review 125 Jan-Feb 1962 (entire volume offered). Ex-library, properly de-accessioned, with minor markings. Cloth. This volume contains the article "Symmetries of Baryons and Mesons" by Murray Gell-Mann, found on pages 1067-1084. Gell-Mann was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1969 "for his contributions and discoveries concerning the classification of elementary particles and their interactions". This paper demonstrates the "introduction of SU(3) single-octet structure of the known mesons and octet-decuplet structure for the baryons. [and] predicts the Omega- Hyperon" There is one earlier introduction of these concepts, in a private institutional paper CTSL-20 which (while quite rare) was printed separately and later reprinted in "The Eightfold Way: A Review" much later (1964). As such, this is the earliest obtainable and best work related to the Gell-Mann's Nobel Prize. See Ezhela, et al, pgs 181 and 186-7.

      1962-63 First edition. P. G. ("Plum") WODEHOUSE'S ORIGINAL TYPED MANUSCRIPT WITH EXTENSIVE NOTES, and with the original, working title of "Great Possessions." The eventual book was first published in the U. S. in 1963 under the title BIFFEN'S MILLIONS and later in the U. K. as FROZEN ASSETS. The manuscript was given to its current owner by Wodehouse and has never appeared on the market. In addition to the 222-page, heavily emended manuscript, there are also about 200 pages of notes by Plum. In an interview in the last year of his life, Wodehouse, commenting on his preparatory work, said that it usually ran to "about four hundred pages of notes. I write down everything that comes into my mind, and about half of it is about characters that aren't in the book at all." In this case there are 58 pages dated June 2, 1962 through Aug 28, 1962, all of which are full-page handwritten notes by PGW; another 45 to 50 pages labeled "Sequence," probably 2/3rds of which are handwritten, dated from July through November 1962; a further 53 pages also labeled "Sequence," dated Feb 19, 1963; and another 40 undated pages of notes, 30 of which are handwritten. A number of Wodehouse manuscripts came to auction in the 1990's and since then there has been just one other, in 2003. (The latter was a manuscript of 170 pages with about 50 pages of handwritten and typed notes and a notebook with 35 handwritten pages of notes. It brought about $24,000.) Minor wear to edges, as might be expected. Housed in custom clamshell case with leather spine label.

      [Stockholm: Royal Dramatic Theatre, nd. but ca. 1962].. Cloth backed boards, printed and manuscript labels. Quarto. 192 leaves, mimeographed on rectos only. Corners bumped, slight sunning at edges, otherwise fine. Mimeographed playscript of the highly important Swedish translation, from the unpublished manuscript, by Karl Ragnar Gierow and Sven Barthel. The history of this translation is fundamental to the history of the text eventually published in English by Yale University Press in 1964, and is discussed by Donald Gallup on pp. 291-5 of PIGEONS ON THE GRANITE (New Haven 1988). In summary, O'Neill had left the play unfinished, and specified that the script was to be destroyed in the event of his death, but a revised typescript had been deposited inadvertently with other papers in the Beinecke Library in 1951. In 1957, Carlotta O'Neill apprised Gierow, who had staged a successful Swedish adaptation of LONG DAY'S JOURNEY..., of its existence, and he undertook the task of an edited, translated adaptation which, although featuring excisions, remained true to what remained of O'Neill's text. When the play was produced in November of 1962, the consensus was that the play merited publication in English, and the establishment of the English text was undertaken by Donald Gallup by collating the original typescript, the Swedish translation, and the Swedish adaptation for the stage. The text here present would appear to be that of the verbatim Swedish translation by Barthel and Girow, as it includes O'Neill's descriptions of characters and sets, as well as the three scene format of Act One (which had been compressed in the adaptation). However, the epilogue, which was not included in the Swedish adaptation, does not appear to be included here. There are a few manuscript corrections or insertions in an unknown hand scattered throughout, several amounting to the addition of a line or two. A highly important script of significance transcending that of most simple translations.

      MGM 1962 - Screenplay written by Helen Deutsch November 20, 1962 [but with revisions dated up through October 1963]. 129 pp., studio generated mimeograph. In a special black leather binding, with the title and star Harve Presnell's name embossed on the front cover, and with title also embossed on spine. Eighteen (18) vintage photos from the film are tipped in, and one additional photo is laid in loosely, along with a folded certificate on parchment-like paper from the Women of the Motion Picture Industry of New Orleans, recognizing Presnell's contribution to the film.

THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN is one of the classic American musical films of the 1960s. Presnell, who created the male lead role of Johnny "Leaadville" Brown in this show's original run on Broadway, also played this part when MGM filmed it, this time with Debbie Reynolds as Molly Brown.

        Autograph working manuscript in condensed score of the Divagazioni sopra un'Allemanda di John Bull per Orch. [7 variazioni su un'Allemanda di John Bull], signed

      48 pp. Folio (ca. 345 x 244 mm.). Unbound. Notated in both ink and pencil on 16-stave music manuscript paper. Heavily annotated with amendations and corrections throughout and including sketches and sections ultimately cancelled. Several movements dated by the composer at their conclusion, indicating that the work was written over a period of time extending from September (or earlier in 1962) to December of 1962 in Rome. Housed in a card folder with a presentation inscription from the composer's daughter Vittoria. With movements listed, together with performance times, to title as follows: "Tema - Allemanda del Duca di Brunswick (1:15), Balletto (.60), Passacaglia (2.42), Corrente (1.48), Siciliana (2.25), Gaglilarda (2.55), Sarabanda (3.50), Fanfara e Corale (5)." The order of the movements has been revised, both on the title and within the manuscript. . An Italian composer, conductor and critic, Guerrini studied with both Torchi and Busoni at the Bologna Liceo Musicale, going on to direct the Florence Conservatory (1928–47), the Bologna Conservatory (1947–9), and the Conservatorio di S Cecilia (1950–60). "His earlier music combines high seriousness, at times somewhat academic, with luxuriant chromatic harmony reminiscent of Bax or, more significantly, Alfano. The textures and orchestration sometimes suggest Strauss, as does Guerrini’s interest, around 1920, in the symphonic poem; and there are indications, too, of Ravel's influence... The most substantial and imaginative of his early works is his second published work in the genre, L’ultimo viaggio d’Odisseo, which shows his harmony and orchestration at their most evocative. Also notable, in this early period, are the chamber compositions: the Violin Sonata is typical, combining succulent chromaticism with reiterative thematic developments. In time Guerrini’s academicism grew more pronounced, while his tendency to romantic indulgence was tempered by a new, architectonic sobriety. His best work after 1930 is in religious music: the gravely expressive Missa pro defunctis, though conservative, is free from the tiredness that mars much of Guerrini’s later output. On a different line of development, the Sette variazioni sopra una sarabanda di Corelli may, in their ingenious rethinking of material from the remoter past, reflect the influence of his teacher Busoni."

        Vier handgeschreven brieven, drie handgeschreven briefkaarten en drie handgeschreven gedichten aan het literaire tijdschrift 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'.

        Lollipop (Candy)

      Olympia Press, 1962. Olympia Press, 1962. First Edition (and first printing after the 1958 edition was suppressed). The first printing of "Candy" (the story of an irresistible young woman who is oblivious to her own sexualiy) was largely seized and destroyed by the French government. Olympia Press publisher Maurice Girodias substituted the wrappers from the remaining first edition copies with new wrappers with the title "Lollipop" in order to circumvent the authorities and sell to the British export market. This is one of the copies which escaped the purge with the altered title -- very uncommon and scarce inscribed or signed. Basis for the film. Near Fine in wraps as issued but for light foxing to the page edges -- a clean copy. Inscribed by Southern (to his friend, television producer Nelson Lyon) on the half title page, as follows: "To my dear Grand Nels, this copy -- which Bartel and others have dubbed 'fraud and double fraud', although it is not -- repeat not true) of my Lollipop for, as I say, a certain dear grand Nels Lyon, with unbounded warmth and admiration. Terry Southern.". Signed by Author. First Thus. Soft Cover. Near Fine/No Jacket.

        Something Wicked This Way Comes

      New York: Simon and Shuster, 1962. New York: Simon and Shuster, 1962 First edition, first printing. Publisher's yellow cloth lettered in black, red topstain; in the original pictorial dust jacket, illustrated with a painting by Gray Foy. A fine copy, with a hint of wear to the spine ends, minor small white spot to the top of page edges, bright and clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and minor chipping to the extremities, price crossed out and replaced with new price notation, minor rubbing to the hinges, light toning to the spine, bright and clean panels. Overall, a bright and pleasing copy. A masterful blend of horror and fantasy, Something Wicked This Way Comes is considered Ray Bradbury's first full-length novel. Set in the fictional Green Town based on Bradbury's home of Waukegan, Illinois, this novel is a companion piece to his 1957 Dandelion Wine. While Dandelion Wine is a the story of two 12 year old boys during one blissful summer, Something Wicked This Way Comes is about two 13 year old boys during one hauntingly terrifying autumn. Together with Bradbury's last novel, Farewell Summer (2006), these novels comprise the Green Town trilogy. In Something Wicked, Jim Nightshade and Will Halloway visit the travelling circus that has come to their town, but quickly learn that the circus, along with its sinister leader Mr. Dark, is much more diabolical than they originally thought. Something Wicked This Way Comes has significant personal ties to Bradbury's childhood; according to his official biographer, Sam Weller, Bradbury began writing it after visiting a travelling circus that came to his town, where he met the eccentric Mr. Electrico, who cryptically instructed the young Bradbury to "live forever!" He based the character Mr. Dark on the more benign Mr. Electrico, and continued to portray other people he met into various writings, including a tattooed man that became Bradbury's Illustrated Man. Bradbury claimed that he began writing voraciously shortly after this significant experience at the travelling circus.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

Still Cuckoo's Nest was turned into a successful film that featured Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher. The book, long a counterculture favorite, has continued to grow in popularity. Kesey has inscribed the book on the front end paper: "To Joe / The slowly murmered / occasion equals the / quick trick. / Ken Kesey " Such inscribed copies of the book are now quite scarce.

        ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT REVIEW OF NANCY MITFORD'S "THE WATER BEETLE" With a first edition of Nancy Mitford's The Water Beetle (Hamilton, 1962)

      Taunton , 1962. Taunton , 1962. A single foolscap (214 x 328 mm) lined page containing approximately 600 words in holograph manuscript reviewing Nancy Mitford's "The Water Beetle" for the Daily Telegraph. Signed at the head of the page, Waugh has added "proof please to Combe Florey House, Taunton" to the margin in red ink. A single horizontal crease, otherwise fine. The review is a wonderful testament to the close friendship shared by Mitford and Waugh who loved nothing more than to tease and rag one another. Evelyn Waugh's review of Mitford's The Water Beetle was published in the Sunday Telegraph on 21st October, 1962. For many decades Evelyn Waugh and Nancy Mitford had been acquaintances. Their friendship, strengthened by a shared sense of humour and love of teasing, blossomed through frequent and intimate correspondence. In 1951 Waugh visited Mitford in Paris and wrote of her, "she leads you into her salon ... and talks, prattles, giggles - of what? Gossip, outrageous, incredible, entirely funny". Miss Nancy Mitford is full, he states, of "sweetness, happiness and inexpressible levity." During its preparation this book of essays was discussed at length between the correspondents. Commenting on her choice of title Mitford wrote, "I hope to disarm the critics by calling it The Water Beetle." The title being taken from Hilaire Belloc's, A Moral Alphabet: W for Water Beetle The Water Beetle here shall teach, A sermon far beyond your reach; He flabbergasts the Human Race, By gliding on the Water's face, With ease, celerity and grace, But if he ever stopped to think, Of how he did it he would sink. Upon receipt of an explanation for the title's derivation Waugh responds, "An excellent, disarming title making everything easy for reviewers. How I look forward to the book." On 10th October Waugh wrote to Mitford to say he had received a copy of her book and had very much enjoyed it, apart from the "coarse" drawings by Osbert Lancaster. He also mentioned that he was writing a review for the Sunday Telegraph and concludes, "I hope I say the right thing. I delight in the book." Miss Mitford may have been surprised therefore when the review began in Waugh's typically acerbic style, "The contemporary English literary world may be conveniently divided into: those who can write but cannot think, those who can think but cannot write, and those who can neither think nor write … Nancy Mitford, by her choice of title, puts herself in the first class." Waugh goes on to praise the fluency of the writing in these essays, which range from childhood reminiscences to discussing Scott's expedition to the Antarctic "and she does it all with ease, celerity and grace… all is told in the same gay artless, artful manner as though in one of those salons whose demise she tearlessly regrets…capable of such gaffes as describing Oates's disappearance in the blizzard as suicide." He concludes, "This accumulation of short pieces brings only delight.... [Mitford] constantly flabbergasts the present reviewer. When most of our writers have sunk, she will still be gliding on the water's face." Mitford's response upon reading the printed review is unsurprising, "You are a brute…. Oh how I screamed at your review …many thanks for flaying me alive, poor little unpretentious Water Beetle."
