        The Collector

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1963. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. 1st edition, terracotta cloth, top edge stained to match but faded, else near fine in 1st state dustjacket with tiny nicks and tears else near fine. Signed by Fowles. 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. S., as there are now 5.2 million more American women than men, a fact raised here in case you guys who aren't getting laid, don't feel bad enough already.

        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. Old Alex could find a vein in a mummy", an intimacy seldom found between two writers. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request.

        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]

        Die Niemandsrose

      Frankfurt: S. Fischer, 1963 Frankfurt: S. Fischer, 1963. First edition. Inscribed by Celan to French literary critic Yvon Belaval in the year of publication to half title. Publisher's light gray-green cloth, lettered in gilt to spine, in the original white dust jacket, lettered in black. A near fine copy with a few small bumps to edges of front board and light sunning to spine, dust jacket with some spotting and faint toning, chipping to spine cap, and a half-inch closed tear to top edge of rear panel. Overall, a pleasing copy. Housed in a custom slipcase. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. Die Niemandsrose is Celan's fifth book of poetry and the first to appear after the crushing accusations of plagiarism by Claire Goll, which had tormented him for years. Die Niemandsrose, which appears under an epigraph in Cyrillic to the effect, "All poets are Jews," explicitly considers Jewish themes as well as the tragic demise of many of the great poets of the century, notably Mandelshtam and Tsvetaeva. Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        IT CATCHES MY HEART IN ITS HANDS

      Loujon Press, New Orleans 1963 - 4to. One of only 777 copies printed. Signed by Bukowski, using thick silver ink, on the front endpaper, and dated, "6-2-63". Arguably Bukowski's most famous book, which collects poetry (66) written between the years 1955-1963. Individual poems merge to form together a body of work unrivalled in kind and very nearly unequalled in quality by Bukowski's contemporaries. But this title was surely enhanced by the skills and dedication of his publisher, Jon Webb, who along with his wife, Gypsy Lou, produced a masterpiece of presentation. The book was lovingly printed one page at a time, handfed with 12-point Garamond Old Style for the poems, 18-point Pabst O.S. for the titles -- to an ancient 8 x 12 Chandler & Price letterpress; on Linweave Spectra paper throughout, 320 lb. for the cover, 160 lb. for the jacket, 75 lb. for the text, in shades of white, wine, stone, saffron, bayberry, peacock, ivory, bittersweeet, gobelin & tobasco." The printing, all manual, was done through the steamy months of June to Septembeer 1963, in a slave quarters workshop back of a sagging ex-mansion in the French Quarter, New Orleans; and hand bound in October of the same year.

Signed by Maurice Sendak on the half title page, inscribed to a former owner and dated Dec. '64. Publisher's pictorial paper covered boards over grey cloth spine. Near Fine, with light foxing to boards at edges, tiny ding to bottom edge of rear board, faint rubbing at corners. Slight offsetting to half title and adjacent page from laid in news-clipping announcing Maurice Sendak's upcoming speaking appearance at two schools. In a Very Good second state dust jacket with Caldecott Medal on front panel and altered text on rear flap. After the book won the Caldecott Medal, unsold copies were recalled by the publisher and supplied with new dust jackets boasting the award, as found here. Jacket shows light rubbing and light toning, light edge wear and a 2-inch closed tear at the top of the front panel; publisher's price of $3.50 intact at the top of the front flap, though bottom corner clipped. A very sharp copy, with an early signature.

        The Student Voice [4 Issues, 1963-1965]

      Atlanta: Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, 1963-5. First Edition. Pamphlet. SNCC's nationally-distributed, professionally-printed monthly (later weekly) newspaper, which offered news of the African-American civil rights movement throughout the South, serving as a national recruiting and fundraising tool particularly on American campuses. Though not credited, the Voice was edited by a young Julian Bond, who had left Morehouse College in the Spring of 1961 to work full-time for SNCC, which he had helped to found a year earlier. The current issues provide graphic reportage of events in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia and the rest of the southern U.S., providing first-person coverage of some of the bloodiest confrontations of the early days of the Civil Rights movement. Despite comparatively mainstream distribution, The Student Voice (like all else from SNCC's early period) is notably uncommon in commerce and far from abundant institutionally, with a number of major North American research libraries appearing to have no holdings at all as of August 2017. This small but representative sampling, though far from comprehensive, nonetheless provides excellent insight to the work of SNCC and the Civil Rights movement generally. Four quarto issues (11" x 8-1/2"). Each issue 4pp (bifolium), printed offset with photographic illustrations. Minimal wear or evidence of use; Near Fine. Includes Vol. 3 no. 1 (April 1962); Vol. 5, nos. 1 (Jan 14, 1964); 6 (Feb 18, 1964); and 8 (Mar 3, 1964).

        it catches my heart in its hands.

      New Orleans: Loujon Press,, 1963. new & selected poems 1955-1963. introduction by john william corrington. gypsy lou series no. 1: a loujon press award book. Octavo. Original white stiff wrappers printed with orange decoration, leaves in various colours and widths. With the illustrated dust jacket incorporated into a card wallet folder, with pictoral flap over fore-edge from rear. Some illustrated and facsimile leaves. A fine copy. First and signed limited edition, first printing, one of 777 unnumbered copies, signed and dated by the author on the front free endpaper (16 February 1964). Bukowski has used yellow paint to sign this copy, rather unusually (copies are more commonly found signed in silver ink). The work collects together what Jon and Louis, the printers, considered to be Bukowski's best works since 1955. It takes its title from a line in a poem by Robinson Jeffers and on the final page the printers describe the printing process in elaborate detail. Together with the facsimile letter loosely laid in, as issued, in which Bukowki comments "I have never seen a book put together in such a way, inventive creativeness and love."

      Cleveland: Robert Crumb, 1963. Very good. 4 items: 1. A hand made mock-up, conceived by Crumb himself, containing individual photographs of each page of the manuscript (295 distinct illustrations), mounted separately (rectos only), each hand numbered on the back in green pencil (92 of them corrected), and then spiral bound together to make a book, a creation aimed at instituting copyright, and shopping publication privileges to potential publishers. 143 leaves (3 1/2" X 5" X 1 1/2" thick). Very good. The inside front cover is stamped, "This book is the property of - Dana Crumb Associates - 819 Eddy Street - San Francisco, California 54109 - Must Be Returned - Within 30 Days of Receipt." The manuscript was written, drawn and colored (beautifully executed in Prismacolor pencils) by Crumb, over 6 months in 1962 and 1963. He gifted it to his wife Dana, made up this sample in 1974, got it published in 1975 (Scrimshaw Press, San Francisco), then left this original with their lawyer Albert Morse (indeed, all the items in this lot are ex-Albert Morse). 2. Distinguishing this primary copy from any other pre- publication sample (should any other exist), is the inclusion of Dana Crumb's wood handled rubberstamp that was used to imprint the inside front cover. 3. Also present is a dummy of the hardbound book as originally conceived by Robert Crumb (black cloth, titled in silver and blue, blank pages). 4. A 1st edition of the published book in pictorial boards and jacket. From the dustjacket flap of the published book: "I drew this story when I was nineteen years old and still a virgin... Now I'm thirty years old and the book seems somewhat adolescent and immature to me. I gave the book as a gift to Dana when I first met her, as a token of my love. We got married shortly after. It has been hidden away all these years, along with some early sketchbooks of mine, and other sophomoric-romantic works done in the throes of horny passion. But now the time has come to review it to the world. I guess. My lawyer Albert Morse thinks it'll sell like hotcakes and make a lot of money. I dunno.".

An exceptionally well preserved set of first editions of this classic of fantasy literature. The set is housed in the original publishers off white slipcase with the label on one side. The slipcase shows some rubbing to the edges, with a bit of color loss, no bumps to the corners, very nice and bright condition, only very lightly soiled. It has done a wonderful job and protected the books from any damage. A few tape ghosts from early dustjacket protecters on The Fellowship. One previous owners name to the front endpaper of the Fellowship, no other marks or writing to the books. The books have a bit of foxing or offsetting to the endpapers, a bit of foxing to the outer edges of the textblock. Overall this set is in Very Good Plus condition, light soiling to the dustjackets, with minor rubbing to the fold areas, no fading to the lettering, and are lightly tanned to the spines. The text block is clean and bright. The red topstain is clean, without a little spotting and fading to The Fellowship. The exterior cloth is extremely clean, with the gilt untarnished and bright. The books are still clean and tight, and the maps are attached, and in excellent condition, no extra folds or tears noted. The dustjackets are in great shape with no chips or tears to the edges. None are price clipped and are the original and correct impression for all three books. A beautiful First Edition set, still housed in the orignal Publishers Slipcase. A fabulous set for the collector, difficult to find in this lovely condition. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Very Good Plus / Very Good Plus.

        Dead Fingers Talk

      John Calder/Olympia Press, London 1963 - The uncorrected proof copy of this drug novel, which consists of an amalgam of sections from The Naked Lunch, The Soft Machine and The Ticket that Exploded, as well as some material not reproduced elsewhere. Inscribed by Burroughs "For Richard Aaron" on the half title. Also on the half title, in another hand: "M. Farmer. Reading copy. Publication date: Oct. 31st, 1963." Published at the height of Burroughs' experimentation with the cut-up technique, this volume embodies that approach, as well as anticipating the later variation of it that we now call "sampling." A good association copy: Richard Aaron was, among other things, the person who negotiated the sale of Burroughs' literary archive to Robert Altmann of Liechtenstein. There was no U.S. edition of this title. Near fine in plain green wrappers, in a very good dust jacket, which differs from the published jacket by virtue of being trimmed to a shorter height and having had the flaps trimmed as well.
