        Wise Blood.

      New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, 1962 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge dyed orange. With the dust jacket. A beautiful copy in the dust jacket with faded spine panel. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Helen Nash, with cheers, Flannery O'Connor". Wise Blood, O'Connor's first novel, was originally published in 1952; this is a later printing. It appears that Nash knew O'Connor's good friend Maryat Lee, who requested this inscription. On 17 August 1962, O'Connor wrote to Lee that "Book on way - a donation to the cause if there is a cause if not, spectacle est gratui anyhow. I put to Helen Nash & after it was wrapped up I got to worrying if it shouldn't have been Dr. Helen Nash, but it was done wrapped up. I ain't supposed to know she's a doctor". Lee was a supporter of the Civil Rights Movement, and Nash (1921–2012) was a pioneering African American doctor, becoming in 1949 the first African American to join the staff of the St. Louis Children's Hospital. Inscriptions of any type by O'Connor are rare. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Welensky's view seems to be that two blacks don't make a Whitehead

      [?1962]. Sheet size: 192 × 140 mm. Pen and black ink on wove paper. Undated, pencil reproduction instructions recto. Perhaps relates to the talks between "Rab" Butler, minister responsible for central African affairs, Roy Welensky and Edgar Whitehead over the future of Rhodesia. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

        [Original Black-And-White Photograph of William S. Burroughs and Antony Balch in the Beat Hotel, Paris]

      [ca. 1962]. Near fine. Original vintage oversize double-weight silver gelatin photograph. 9 1/8" x 13 1/2". Near fine. Tikhomiroff's studio stamp to verso. Unpublished outtake from the photo session that would eventually be utilized for the Burroughs profile/NAKED LUNCH review that would appear in the Nov. 30th 1962 issue of Time magazine (here provided). This negative and unflattering piece ("King of the YADS"), eventually inspired Burroughs to utilize this issue in his early and important "cut-up," TIME (1965) for Ted Berrigan's "C" Press [Maynard and Mile A11]. Burroughs met Balch at the Beat Hotel in 1960 and thus began a decades-long collaboration. Balch frequently filmed Burroughs, from mundane activities (like buying a parrot in Morocco) to more theatrical (Burroughs in character as Dr. Benway). The two worked on several short films together, including TOWERS OPEN FIRE (1963), THE CUT UPS (1967), and BILL AND TONY (1972). Balch's experimental style heavily influenced Burroughs' own ideas about cut-ups and Balch is given special thanks by Burroughs in THE TICKET THAT EXPLODED. Balch followed Burroughs throughout the 60's, moving with him from Paris to New York and then to London, often even living in the same building. The two remained close throughout the 70's until Balch's premature death from stomach cancer in 1972. One of the earliest images, if not the earliest, of Burroughs with Balch, and one of only a small handful of photos we've seen of the Beat giant with one of his most important collaborators.

        Typed Letter, Signed, 1962. With Additional Material Relating to the First SDS National Convention and the Drafting of the Port Huron Statement

      New York: Students for a Democratic Society, 1962. Extremely early, foundational document of the SDS, announcing the group's first National Convention at Port Huron, Michigan in June of 1962. Undated, but circa March or April, 1962. The recipient is unknown, but SDS Chairman Robert Alan ("Al") Haber presumably sent such invitations to university students around the country who had been previously active in leftist political causes. The prospectus, titled What is the S.D.S.?,lays out a 5-part platform -- Civil Rights, Peace, Higher Education, Student Organization, and National Politics -- which would be reflected in the group's formal manifesto, The Port Huron Statement, some months later. The text of the prospectus is unsigned, but smacks strongly of the declarative, cadenced prose used by Tom Hayden in his final draft of the Statement. & & The convention Program provides an outline of daily sessions, concluding with "debate, amemdments, and voting" on the Manifesto, then states: "The manifesto draft will be mailed after June 1 to registrants and those requesting it. Copies of other convention papers will be mailed out or available at Port Huron..." This is possibly the earliest printed reference to The Port Huron Statement, the definitive political manifesto of the post-War era; it is also a tantalizing bit of evidence that early, unrecorded pre-publication drafts of the Statement may have been issued in some quantity prior to the convention. Neither letter, nor Program, nor Prospectus located in OCLC. Mimeographed form letter, extending an invitation to the first SDS National Convention, June 11-15, 1962. Signed in blue ink by SDS Chairman Robert A. Haber. Together with a one-page Convention Program, and a 5-pp prospectus titled "What is the S.D.S.?" (both mimeographed). Original folds for mailing, else Fine.

        [Original Black-And-White Photograph of William S. Burroughs and Antony Balch in the Beat Hotel, Paris]

      [ca. 1962]. Near fine. Original vintage oversize double-weight silver gelatin photograph. 9 1/8" x 13 1/2". Near fine. Tikhomiroff's studio stamp to verso. Unpublished outtake from the photo session that would eventually be utilized for the Burroughs profile/NAKED LUNCH review that would appear in the Nov. 30th 1962 issue of Time magazine (here provided). This negative and unflattering piece ("King of the YADS"), eventually inspired Burroughs to utilize this issue in his early and important "cut-up," TIME (1965) for Ted Berrigan's "C" Press [Maynard and Mile A11]. Burroughs met Balch at the Beat Hotel in 1960 and thus began a decades-long collaboration. Balch frequently filmed Burroughs, from mundane activities (like buying a parrot in Morocco) to more theatrical (Burroughs in character as Dr. Benway). The two worked on several short films together, including TOWERS OPEN FIRE (1963), THE CUT UPS (1967), and BILL AND TONY (1972). Balch's experimental style heavily influenced Burroughs' own ideas about cut-ups and Balch is given special thanks by Burroughs in THE TICKET THAT EXPLODED. Balch followed Burroughs throughout the 60's, moving with him from Paris to New York and then to London, often even living in the same building. The two remained close throughout the 70's until Balch's premature death from stomach cancer in 1972. One of the earliest images, if not the earliest, of Burroughs with Balch, and one of only a small handful of photos we've seen of the Beat giant with one of his most important collaborators.
