Johnson describes the history of Coloma, California, where the store was located, and the emporium itself, which, as the title suggests, sold everything from champagne to shoes.

        Menu for La Colomba

      Venezia: La Colomba, 1962. 13 x 13 inch single sheet with screen printed typo-pictorial design in colors. Verso with food offerings and prices. A menu designed by the important Belgian surrealist, probably created for the famed art bistro's design contest, and quite possibly a mock-up. Signed and dated 1962 by Mesens in the lower left hand corner. This is further inscribed in 1964 by Mesens to his long time friend and accomplice, the surrealist jazz musician and all around bohemian and eccentric George Melly. "For Diana and George, who should go to eat by gondola in Venezia! Look at the prices. . . Ted. 1964." A fantastic association. Melly was introduced to surrealism by Mesens, and worked for a time in his important surrealist gallery in London, where he developed a close and complicated three-way relationship with Mesens and his wife Sybil. Melly would go on to write the biography of Mesens, entitled "Don't Tell Sybil." The "Diana" of the inscription is Diana Moynihan, George's second wife. Folded twice, with overall creasing, still about very good. Likely unique.

        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.

        DEATHS FOR THE LADIES: And Other Disasters.

      Putnam Sons (1962)., New York: - First edition, paperwraps issue, of this "run of poems, short poems, very short poems, and turns of prose." From the collection of Adeline Lubell-Naiman. INSCRIBED with an elaborate drawing "The critic pursued by a theme [large scribbled drawing spanning inside front cover and first leaf] Love / (that is to say lustility [sic] and housefection [sic] to Lucky and Adeline) / Norman." This paperwraps issue came out at the same time as the small hardback printing. Very good. Adeline Lubell-Naiman was the editor instrumental in the eventual publication of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD. In 1946, while an editor at Little, Brown, Lubell-Naiman convinced Mailer to submit the first 200 pages of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD, which she talked up to her publisher. Unfortunately, she was also the one to suggest historian and critic Bernard DeVoto read the manuscript--he recommended not publishing. But Mailer submitted it to Rinehart, who published the book in 1948. Over the years, Lubell-Naiman remained close friends with Mailer and his wives. In the summer of 1968 she even played the role of "Adeline McCarthy," a president of a women's college in Mailer's film "Maidstone" (Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center website).

        Kennedy Says the U.S. Must "grasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world."

      Kennedy Says the U.S. Must "grasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world.".& In 1962, Kennedy's greatest economic worry was the country's balance-of-payments. The United States was buying more than it was selling - and the international trade deficit of $5 billion dollars weaked the value of the currency, risked inflation, and gave foreign nations the power to claim their debts in gold. (Today it is $763.6 billion. What would JFK think of that!). In order to strengthen the currency and ameliorate these problems, Kennedy needed to boost trade. He wanted the authority to negotiate lower tariffs, and he wanted power, too, to compensate American workers whose jobs would be lost to foreign competition. This was the basis of the Trade Expansion Act, introduced in his January State of the Union Message - and which would eventually see passage nine months later. But in May, the issue was far from settled; here the President stumps for the Act, shoring up support as he praises its benefits.& & Typed Letter Signed as President, on green White House letterhead, Washington, May 24, 1962. "Thank you for your telegram in support of the trade program which was presented to me at the dinner of the Coordinating Council of Organizations on International Trade Policy last week. I appreciate your interest and that of your State in the enactment of strong new trade legislation which will enable us to grasp the opportunities and meet the challenges which confront us as a nation and as leaders in the free world."

        MODERN JAPANESE PRINT. AN APPRECIATION, with Ten Original Prints

      1962. Fine. MICHENER, JAMES A. THE MODERN JAPANESE PRINT, An Appreciation. With Ten Original Prints by Hiratsuka Un'ichi, Maekawa Sempan, Mori Yoshitoshi, Watanabe Sadao, Kinoshita Tomio, Shima Tamami, Azechi Umetaro, Iwami Reika, Yoshida Masaji, Maki Haku. Rutland: Tuttle, (1969). One of 510 numbered copies. It is signed by Michener on a slip which is tipped-in at the colophon and illustrated with ten large, hand-printed and hand-signed plates by the artists. The plate blocks were destroyed upon completion of the edition. A cloth-bound folio volume housed in a wooden slipcase; it is titled in English and Japanese (the Japanese reads "Sosaku Hanga", that is "creative prints") on both the cloth cover and on the wooden slipcase. The artists and the prints in this volume have become increasingly collectible since the early 1960s, when this book was produced. In consequence, many of the copies have been cannibalized for the prints. Complete copies like this one are unusual. The spine is slightly sunned, internally very fine.

        The Spy Who Loved Me

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1962. First edition. Octavo, original black boards titles to the spine in silver. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a single closed tear to the rear panel. A very bright copy of the tenth novel in the James Bond series. In light of the novel's immense presence as a classic thriller, it's amusing to learn that it was at first poorly received. The novel was banned in several countries due to its heightened sexual writing. The reception was so bad that Fleming wrote to Michael Howard of the Jonathan Cape publishing company to explain why he wrote the book: "I had become increasingly surprised to find my thrillers, which were designed for an adult audience, being read in schools, and that young people were making a hero out of James Bond ... So it crossed my mind to write a cautionary tale about Bond, to put the record straight in the minds particularly of younger readers ... the experiment has obviously gone very much awry" (Chancellor 2005). Upon Fleming's request, no reprints were made until after his death in 1964.

Len Deighton's classic first novel, whose protagonist is a nameless spy - later christened Harry Palmer, was not only Deighton's first novel, it was his first bestseller and the book that broke the mould of thriller writing. "The Ipcress File helped change the shape of the espionage thriller...the prose is still as crisp and fresh as ever...there is an infectious energy about this book which makes it a joy to read, or re-read" (Sunday Times). It was made into a film in 1965 produced by Harry Saltzman and directed by Sidney J. Furie, starring Michael Caine as the protagonist.

        THE TENNIS COURT OATH

      Middletown: Wesleyan University Press (1962). 1st edition, full gray cloth, with illustrated dust jacket. Specially signed by Ashbery on the title page. The author's very scarce second trade publication of poems, issued in only 750 copies (Kermani A7) and considered by many collectors to be the most elusive of his trade publications. The present copy shows only the slightest signs of aging, primarily across the top and fore-edge of the paper. The cloth binding is very clean and bright, and the complete (not price clipped) jacket shows light sunning to the spine only. A most desirable copy, particularly in this condition and signed by the poet.
