        The Man in the High Castle

      New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1962. First edition of Philip K. Dick's Hugo Award-winning novel. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Philip K. Dick on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. Jacket design by Robert Galster. Rare and desirable signed. Philip K. Dick succeeded in creating a plausible imaginary world in which Americans are obliged to squirm with embarrassment, resentment and remorse; they bear the full weight of cultural oppression which has been borne in our time-stream by so many of the world's other peoples... The novel questions our whole notion of 'reality,' showing how frail the consensus can be... It is probably Dick's best work, and the most memorable alternative world tale, or fantasia of historical possibility, ever written" (Science Fiction 100 Best, 93-94). "The single most resonant and carefully imagined book of Dick's career... One of America's enduring expressionist novels of alienation and disillusionment, whose environs are no more far-fetched than the West Egg mansion of an ersatz millionaire" (New York Times). Winner of the 1963 Hugo Award for Best Novel. It is the basis for the successful series produced by Amazon Studios starring Alexa Davalos and Rupert Evans.

        A Wrinkle In Time.

      New York: Ariel Books, 1962. First edition of the author's Newbery award-winning novel. Octavo, original half blue cloth. Small contemporary inscription to the dedication page, near fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with some light rubbing to the crown of the spine. Without the Newbery Award winning seal to the front panel. Jacket design by Ellen Raskin. A nice example. At once a science fiction story, a philosophical meditation on the nature of Evil and Love and a coming-of-age novel, Wrinkle broke new ground in what was considered appropriate for young readers. Rejected by several publishers for being too complex, this title has amply proven L'Engle's belief that 'children are excited by new ideas' and has been credited with bringing science fiction into the mainstream of children's literature. This is L'Engle's best work" (Silvey, 401). A Wrinkle in Time is one of the most significant novels of our time. "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). It went on to win a Newbery Medal, Sequoyah Book Award, and Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, and was runner-up for the Hans Christian Andersen Award. It is the basis for the film directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Reese Witherspoon, Zach Galifianakis, and Oprah Winfrey.

        Announcement Flyer for a 1962 Series of Musical Performances entitled Neo-Dada in der Musik

      Dusseldorf: Kammerspiele, 1962. First edition. Single sheet of paper, double-sided. Measuring 8 1/8" wide x 11 1/2" tall. An announcement flyer / program guide to a series of musical events and performances in Dusseldorf 16, Juni 1962 entitled NEO-DADA in der Musik. Fine condition. The program lists such fluxian luminaries as Nam (spelled Name) June Paik, George Maciunas, Wolf Vostell and several others. The verso announces a series of three lectures by Maciunas to be held the following year to raise funds for the publication of Fluxus magazine. At this early stage, several of the key players in the Fluxus universe, especially Brecht were hesitant to refer to Fluxus under that name, but rather thought of it as Neo-Dada. This term apparently did not sit well with the living members of the Dada movement of the day. This concert along with others that occurred in Europe around this time (1962-63) were coordinated and planned by Maciunas and others and were sometimes referred to as Flux YearBoxes. Please note that, per WorldCat, a single copy of this flyer (or something similar) exists at Northwestern University, but it is described differently i.e. that their version is significantly taller and includes four sheets in total.

        The White House

      Washington, DC: White House Historical Association,, 1962. An historic guide. Tall octavo (257 x 175 mm). Bound for presentation in green sheep, titles to spine gilt, double rule frame to covers, green and gilt marbled endpapers, original card wrappers bound in. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Fully illustrated in colour. Light mottling to covers, very slight rubbing to spine ends, an excellent copy. First edition, first printing. Number 93 of 100 copies specially bound for presentation by the Kennedys, inscribed on the limitation page, "For David and Sissie with love Jackie December 25 1962", additionally signed by John F. Kennedy, "and Jack Kennedy". The recipients of this copy were David and Sylvia Ormsby Gore, close friends of the Kennedys. David Ormsby Gore had known John F. Kennedy since Kennedy's pre-war years in London. His appointment to the position of British Ambassador to the United States in May 1961 was primarily due to this friendship, which "strengthened rather than wilted under the strains of office and official intercourse ... buttressed by the fact that Ormsby Gore was also on close terms with Jacqueline Kennedy, as were the Kennedys with Lady Ormsby Gore" (ODNB). Ormsby Gore was, "almost as much an unofficial adviser to the president as an envoy of the British government ... His position was particularly influential during the Cuban missile crisis in October 1962" (ODNB). Jacqueline Kennedy had first visited the White House as a tourist in 1941. She was shocked to see so few historical furnishings on display and frustrated by the lack of information for visitors about the history of the house. Twenty years later, as First Lady, she sought to change things, amongst many other things, including an almost full restoration of scholarly accurate period restoration, producing this booklet; noting in the preface that it, "is for all of the people who visit the White House each year ... it seemed a shame that they should have nothing to take away with them". Her highly successful televised tour of the White House, broadcast by CBS on 14 February 1962, helped establish the President's home as one of the most visited tourist attractions in the United States.

        SILENT SPRING

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1962. First Edition. Hardcover. Bump to bottom right corner, otherwise Fine in a Near Fine dustwrapper with moderate edgewear. This book on the effects of pesticides is a landmark in environmental writing inspiring the movement that led to the banning of DDT and raising awareness of the important connection between humans and their environment which hitherto had been generally taken for granted. This copy is INSCRIBED "To Nell Mae/with best wishes" and SIGNED by the author on the half-title page. Signed copies of this important book, one of the most important of the century by many standards, are rather scarce as, ironically, Carson died of cancer less than two years after its publication.

        Silent Spring

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1962. First edition of this Rachel Carson's classic work. Octavo, original green cloth. Signed by Rachel Carson on the half-title page. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with some rubbing to the spine. A very nice example. In the late 1950s, Carson turned her attention to conservation, especially environmental problems that she believed were caused by synthetic pesticides. The result was Silent Spring, which brought environmental concerns to the American public. "Her book is a cry to the reading public to help curb private and public programs which by use of poisons will end by destroying life on earth. ... Miss Carson, with the fervor of an Ezekiel, is trying to save nature and mankind" (The New York Times). Silent Spring "became a runaway bestseller, with international reverberations It is well crafted, fearless and succinct Even if she had not inspired a generation of activists, Carson would prevail as one of the greatest nature writers in American letters" (Mattheissen, Time). Named by TIME Magazine as one of the 100 best and most influential non-fiction books since 1923 and by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest non-fiction books of the twentieth century. In 2006, it was named one of the 25 greatest science books of all time by the editors of Discover Magazine.
