        The Collector

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1963. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. 1st edition, preceding the American. His first book. Variant binding in black cloth, top edge unstained, and copies in black were actually sold in retail stores, so it is a published issue. Near fine in near fine 1st state dustjacket (no reviews on flap). I try to deny myself delusions when I am writing, and I think this allows me to deny them to others when they refuse to keep their fantasies to themselves, and this book inspires more than its share. Our jacket's not price clipped and among the wild claims attached to Collectors in black, is that all copies were sold in price clipped jackets. And that's not the only myth attached to this issue. It's said to be rare when there are 5 copies for sale right now. It's called a trial binding, or an export issue, with no proof at all. And whether it's (likely) the 1st binding in standard Cape black cloth used while awaiting delivery of, or deciding upon, the terracotta colored cloth normally seen, or (less likely) the 2nd binding in standard Cape black used for the final sets of sheets when the terracotta had run out, or been abandoned for a while, it's not a $10,000 book. It's not a $5,000 book. And it should be wrapped in crime scene tape when it's sold to anyone guileless enough to buy one at any price beyond our price. It is, however, 30 times scarcer than the regular binding for 3 times the price here, so the math supports our premium and decrypts its relative value (Book Code).

      1963 - Garden City. Doubleday. 1963. 8vo., original cloth with price-clipped dust wrapper. A little chipping and light creasing to wrapper, otherwise a very good copy. First edition inscibed by Bob Hope "To Father David, This is what I do between golf games, very best, Bob Hope." A collection of anaecdotes including stories from a trip Bob Hope made to Russia in the early 1960s. [sold with] 24 pages of typescript carbon copies containing notes for Bob Hope's comedy. The majority of the notes are for the Peace Officer's Shrine Club Dinner held at the Statler-Hilton on April 20th 1964. The notes are in four sections, one based around the District Attorney William B. McKesson, another on Sheriff Peter J. Pitchess, one on Police Chief William Parker and miscellaneous notes. Several of the notes are repeated at various stages throughout the various sheets. We presume that these notes are unpublished. The other sheets of notes refer to an episode of Chrysler Theatre TV Series for 25th September 1964, with the upcoming Presdiential Election bearing the brunt of Hope's comedy. "Both candidates are watching each other like hawks.LBJ sneezed the other day and Goldwater accused him of germ warfare." Bob Hope Presents the Chrysler Theatre was an American anthology series, sponsored by Chrysler Corporation, which ran on NBC from 1963 through 1967. The show was hosted by Bob Hope, but it had a variety of formats, including musical, dramatic, and comedy.

This book is an exemplar of the post-modern novel in all its originality, rooted in the mind of a sociopath who, desperate for companionship, stalks a woman, then kidnaps and imprisons her. Now it's 2016, and this class of crime no longer need exist, at least in the U.

        DEAD FINGERS TALK

      London: John Calder in association with The Olympia Press. 1963 - First edition, first printing [not published in America]. Inscribed presentation copy from William Burroughs to Alexander Trocchi. Publisher’s original grey cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in the Ian Sommerville illustrated dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, with light bumping at the spine tips. The contents are clean throughout. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper. Not price-clipped (25s net to the front flap). An important association copy. Inscribed by the author in blue ink on the title page "For Alex Trocchi / good friend and / good showman / dead fingers talk / invisible insurrection / William Burroughs". Published and presumably inscribed shortly after their first encounter in 1962 on an aeroplane heading to the Edinburgh Writer’s Conference. Burroughs recalls "I’d read Cain’s Book, which was one of the early books about heroin addiction, and so we had a lot in common". The two became allies of sort at the conference which turned into an extraordinary stand-off between the old guard and the young turks. Trocchi’s announcement that "of what is interesting in the last twenty years or so of Scottish writing, I myself have written it all" incensed poet Hugh MacDiarmid so much that he denounced both Trocchi and Burroughs as "vermin who should never have been invited", later describing Trocchi as "cosmopolitan scum, a writer of no literary consequence whatsoever". Therein a long term and close friendship was born. Burroughs and Trocchi act as paradigms for the life of junk, both inside and outside of their texts. As long-term heroin addicts, Burroughs admired Trocchi’s skill with the hypodermic syringe, writing "when I met [Alex]in London, he used to help me shoot up my veins were gone in my arms.

        DEAD FINGERS TALK

      London: John Calder in association with The Olympia Press. 1963. First edition, first printing [not published in America]. First edition, first printing [not published in America]. Inscribed presentation copy from William Burroughs to Alexander Trocchi. Publisher's original grey cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in the Ian Sommerville illustrated dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm, with light bumping at the spine tips. The contents are clean throughout. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper. Not price-clipped (25s net to the front flap). An important association copy. Inscribed by the author in blue ink on the title page “For Alex Trocchi / good friend and / good showman / dead fingers talk / invisible insurrection / William Burroughs”. Published and presumably inscribed shortly after their first encounter in 1962 on an aeroplane heading to the Edinburgh Writer's Conference. Burroughs recalls “I'd read Cain's Book , which was one of the early books about heroin addiction, and so we had a lot in common”. The two became allies of sort at the conference which turned into an extraordinary stand-off between the old guard and the young turks. Trocchi's announcement that “of what is interesting in the last twenty years or so of Scottish writing, I myself have written it all” incensed poet Hugh MacDiarmid so much that he denounced both Trocchi and Burroughs as “vermin who should never have been invited”, later describing Trocchi as “cosmopolitan scum, a writer of no literary consequence whatsoever”. Therein a long term and close friendship was born. Burroughs and Trocchi act as paradigms for the life of junk, both inside and outside of their texts. As long-term heroin addicts, Burroughs admired Trocchi's skill with the hypodermic syringe, writing “when I met [Alex] in London, he used to help me shoot up … my veins were gone in my arms.

        Absent and Present

      1963 - First edition. 8vo., original grey cloth, lettered in blue. Wesleyan University Press, Middleton, Conn. Inscribed by Kallman to Neil Little, dedicatee of two of the poems, and also of Auden's poem Encomium Balnei: ?Kirchstetten Sept 24th 1963, Wystan, This Man is Here: We're Hosts. Toasts! More? If we'll give Neil a (say) meal. He'll feel (he's House Guest) that at best his due no doubt; So. Look what I'll do (Guile!) is (Don't You) kneel to Neil (though I won't woo) with my new book. (It's Bits, Myth and Blood Fun) One sign (mine) of Love - Yes Sir! - Chester (Cook)? With Little's bookplate.Little had been a neighbour of theirs in Ischia, and it was while returning from dinner at his house that Auden made his surprising but serious proposal of marriage to Thekla Pelletti: ?All I would say was 'WYSTAN!' which seemed somehow to settle things . What would a distinguished middle-aged homosexual writer want with a giddy young woman? I was certainly no intellectual, I was aggressively heterosexual; we had practically no vices in common.? The above from her very likeable memoir Wystan and Chester, in which she demonstrates just what Auden saw in her.The inscription is an extended doggerel verse, made while Little was visiting them at their summer home at Kirchstetten in Austria, where they had moved (a transition memorialized in Auden's poem Goodbye to the Mezzogiorno) from Ischia: Kallman's behaviour had become a little too wanton even by Ischian standards, and Auden had a terminal row with his house-boy Giocondo, who had the whole of the village on his side. A fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
