        The Tin Drum

      New York: Pantheon, 1962. First American edition. Octavo, original red cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear to the spine. Inscribed by the author to poet Robert Lowell in a German inscription, translated into English, which reads: "To Robert Lowell, in admiration and in the hope to have the pleasure of meeting you soon in Berlin. Gunter Grass Berlin, Nov 3, 1966." Association copies of this caliber are rare, especially on what is considered his masterpiece. From the estate of Elizabeth Hardwick, novelist and wife of Robert Lowell. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. When Günter Grass published "The Tin Drum" in 1959 it was as if German literature had been granted a new beginning after decades of linguistic and moral destruction. Within the pages of this, his first novel, Grass recreated the lost world from which his creativity sprang, Danzig, his home town, as he remembered it from the years of his infancy before the catastrophe of war. Here he comes to grips with the enormous task of reviewing contemporary history by recalling the disavowed and the forgotten: the victims, losers and lies that people wanted to forget because they had once believed in them. At the same time the novel breaks the bounds of realism by having as its protagonist and narrator an infernal intelligence in the body of a three-year-old, a monster who overpowers the fellow human beings he approaches with the help of a toy drum. The unforgettable Oskar Matzerath is an intellectual whose critical approach is childishness, a one-man carnival, dadaism in action in everyday German provincial life just when this small world becomes involved in the insanity of the great world surrounding it. It is not too audacious to assume that "The Tin Drum" will become one of the enduring literary works of the 20th century" (The Swedish Academy).

        The Big Bite - April, 1963.

      Manuscript for the monthly column in Esquire. Five double-spaced typed leaves. With a manual correction on the first leaf (and a few remaining errors on the others). Folded twice. Very fine. Signed by the author on the last leaf. Beginning: ''The rite of spring is in the odor of the air.'', Mailer depicts the doomsday atmosphere of New York during the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962. Esquire publisher Mailer's monthly column The Big Bite from November 1962 through December 1963, when he turned to publishing his serialized novel The American Dream. According to his secretary at the time, Anne Berry, Mailer handed her the first draft of a column, which she typed triple-spaced, gave it back for editing, and then typed it again double-spaced (cf. Mills, Mailer. A Biography, p. 263). This manuscript thus belongs to the second, edited version of the column. Adams pp. 10

        Crowds and Power

      London: Victor Gollancz, 1962. First British edition. Octavo, original blue cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper. An excellent copy in a very good dust jacket that shows some modest rubbing to the extremities. Elias Canetti was awarded the 1981 Nobel Prize in literature on the basis of this work, his masterpiece, Crowds and Power. Ranging from soccer crowds and political rallies to Bushmen and the pilgrimage to Mecca, Canetti exhaustively reviews the way crowds form, develop, and dissolve, using this taxonomy of mass movement as a key to the dynamics of social life. The style is abstract, erudite, and anecdotal, which makes Crowds and Power the sort of work that awes some readers with its profundity while irritating others with its elusiveness. Canetti loves to say something brilliant but counterintuitive, and then leave the reader to figure out both why he said it and whether it's really true" (Richard Farr).

        Sports Banquet Program Signed by First African-American Heisman Trophy Winner Ernie Davis, as well as by Jim Brown, John Mackey, Maury Youmans, Dave Giusti, 1/21/1962

      St. Margaret's Holy Name Society, Mattydale, NY 1962 - Mattydale, NY: St. Margaret's Holy Name Society, 1962. Signed by Ernie Davis and four other Syracuse University athlete alumni. January 21, 1962: A program for the St. Margaret's Holy Name Society Fathers and Sons Sports Banquet (as such events were then called) program, for a feast honoring Jim Brown and Special Guest Ernie Davis - both former star running backs at Syracuse University, two-time All-American Davis quite recently, having capped his final season at Syracuse in 1961 by becoming the first African-American to win the Heisman Trophy. The banquet program was published by St. Margaret's Church in Mattydale, NY, a northern-edge adjacent suburb of Syracuse, and was funded, of course, by the local business ads that dominated such things. It is octavo in size, stapled wraps, unpaginated, but 20 pp. + covers; in Very Good condition, with faint front cover soiling and four small pieces of dry, removable masking tape on the rear cover. That's because it was in my scrapbook from back then. The dominant ads were not all that was in this program, however; There were two pages featuring Brown and Davis, a list of honored guests (that's my penciled remarks on the honored guests page, scrawled at age 13) and, more to the point: the autographs of Ernie Davis, Jim Brown, John Mackey, Maury Youmans and Dave Giusti. Giusti and Youmans were local-boys-make-good former stars at 'Cuse - Giusti as a pitcher for the Houston Colt 45s (later Astros), the St. Louis Cardinals, the San Diego Padres and the Pittsburgh Pirates, for whom he was named Relief Pitcher of the Year in 1971 by the Sporting News and made the All-Star team in 1973; Youmans was a defensive end for Da Bears and Da Cowboys. But it was the non-local-boy 'Cuse stars at the banquet who were all to become hall-of-famers: Jim Brown, John Mackey, and the late Ernie Davis. I wonder how many Pop Warner-based Father-Son Sports Banquets get such a lineup at the same dinner these days ? Davis, of course, died some 14 months later, a victim of leukemia, before ever being able to play a down of pro football. The Cleveland Browns, who had acquired him from the Washington Redskins, wanted to team him with the other former Orangeman heavyweight running back at the banquet that night, Brown. There's your running game. But it wasn't meant to be. Ernie passed on. Hence, the great rarity of autographs by one of the most memorable Heisman winners in history. Davis was, of course, honored in recent years by a book and a movie, both entitled The Express; coming out of high school in Elmira, NY, his nickname was The Elmira Express. This all belongs to the mists of time, now. Your provenance for these autographs are 1) Forensic Handwriting Examiner Frank Garo (his certification will accompany the program), and 2).Me. And a written provenance letter from me, if you want. I was the skinny kid just about done with Pop Warner football, about to go on and get two broken legs, an ACL injury that later gave me a bionic knee, and about one each of every other football injury (you know the routine - but it was worth it, wasn't it ?), who walked around and timidly got all these autographs the night of January 21, 1962. Don't worry. I did it twice. I'm keeping the other set. l-eph [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

"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).

        American Folk Blues Festival, Original, Vintage, 1962 German Concert Poster By Gunther Kieser

      - American Folk Blues Festival Concert Poster, Auditorium Max,[Hamburg], Oct. 18,[1962], produced by Lippmann & Rau; designed by Gunther Kieser with the Michel + Kieser imprint to bottom centre right, inside the guitar margin. A1 Format, 23.25" by 33" (59 cm. by 83.8 cm.), in fine condition, bright, unmarked, with crisp factory folds. The American Folk Blues Festival was the brainchild of German concert promoters, Horst Lippmann and Fritz Rau, who had been successfully presenting jazz concerts in Germany since the mid - 1950's. The first AFBF was held in 1962, for which this poster was designed, and working with the well-connected Chicago bluesman, composer and bassist Willie Dixon, L&R were able to present a who's who of American urban and country blues artists for the first time to European audiences. Exposure to these great American blues musicians inspired and influenced a generation of British musicians, including future rock stars Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, all of whom played an important role in the blue-based British Invasion of the 1960's. AFBF continued until 1972 with a series of highly successful concerts in Germany, France and England, after which the festivals were terminated for an eight year hiatus before resuming in 1980 for another five years. The posters created exclusively for the German AFBF festivals were designed by the eminent graphic designer Gunther Kieser and are representative of some of his finest music poster designs. A significant blues poster for the first presentation of the influential American Folk Blues Festival, in collector's condition. J1750 [Attributes: First Edition]

Founded in 1957, it reached its peak of influence in the May 1968 protests in France. With their ideas rooted in Marxism and the 20th-century European artistic avant-gardes, they advocated experiences of life alternative to those admitted by advanced capitalism, for the fulfillment of human desires. For this purpose they suggested and experimented with the "construction of situations", namely the setting up of environments favorable for the fulfillment of such desires. Using methods drawn from the arts, they developed a series of experimental fields of study, including unitary urbanism and psychogeography.
