        Two Tales: ???????? ???? [Matryona's House] and ?????? ?? ??????? ?????????? [Incident at Krechetovka Station]].

      Flegon Press London 1963 - Tall 8vo. 55 pp.; light marginal creases to lower corner of first leaves, light marginal staining to p.35. Publisher's yellow printed wrappers; a bit rubbed, some stains to covers, upper cover with light creases and marks of sunning. Good copy of the rare first edition in book form of the Solzhenitsyn's second published works, which had previously appeared in 'Noviy Mir'. This was also the second publication of the Flegon Press, following on from the pirate edition of 'One Day in the life of Ivan Denisovich'. The title character of "Matryona's Home," an impoverished peasant woman, endures her drab life until she is killed in a train accident. Figuring into a long tradition, Matryona is alternately seen by critics as a symbolic depiction of the idealised Russian peasant—innocent, infinitely patient, and hardworking—or a personification of a quietly suffering Mother Russia. "An Incident at Krechetovka Station" presents the patriotic, devoutly Marxist, and steadfastly "vigilant" army lieutenant Zotov, a railroad station commander at Krechetovka. While assisting a misplaced soldier named Tveritinov, who has been separated from his unit, Zotov discovers the man does not know that the city of Tsaritsyn in now called Stalingrad, and suspects he is a German spy. Turning Tveritinov over to the secret police for questioning, Zotov later regrets his decision, realizing the soldier will likely never see his family again. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

It presents an important and extensive research into the banners and standards of the Russian army regiments from the time of Ivan the Terrible until 1900, providing detailed description of colours and symbols used and the exact dates of any changes made. Vladimir Zvegintsev (1914, Tsarskoe Selo - 1996, Paris) was a Russian military historian and an expert on Russian army uniforms; his father was also a military writer. Many of the Zvegintsev's works were never published in the full sense of the word, but rather typed on the typewriter, corrected by hand where necessary and multiplied using offset printing. The present work is no exception. In its fragile printed wrappers and with plates unbound not many copies of this small edition survive complete and in good condition. No copies in RGB; WorldCat finds only three copies outside Russia: in Sorbonne University library, Toronto Public Library and German National library. Republished in 2008. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The story of only 338 words focuses on a young boy named Max who, after dressing in his wolf costume, wreaks such havoc through his household that he is sent to bed without his supper. Max's bedroom undergoes a mysterious transformation into a jungle environment, and he winds up sailing to an island inhabited by malicious beasts known as the "Wild Things." After successfully intimidating the creatures, Max is hailed as the king of the Wild Things and enjoys a playful romp with his subjects; however, he decides to return home, to the Wild Things' dismay. After arriving in his bedroom, Max discovers a hot supper waiting for him.The book has been adapted into other media several times, including an animated short in 1974 (with an updated version in 1988); a 1980 opera; and a live-action 2009 feature-film adaptation, directed by Spike Jonze. The book had sold over nineteen million copies worldwide as of 2009, with ten million of those being in the United States.Sendak won the annual Caldecott Medal from the children's librarians in 1964, recognizing Wild Things as the previous year's "most distinguished American picture book for children". It was voted the number one picture book in a 2012 survey of School Library Journal readers, not for the first time.Hanrahan A58.

        The Beast in the Jungle.

      Allen Press, Kentfield, California 1963 - A Psychological Novel by Henry James. One of only 15 copies with an extra suite of 16 artist's proofs each titled, numbered 9/15 and signed by the artist in a separate portfolio. 16 wood engravings by Blair Hughes-Stanton, all printed in two colours plus one illustration in grey, green, purple, red, blue, olive, blue/green and brown. Text printed in several colours in Romanà e types on Arches paper. Folio, original handmade Italian printed paper covered boards with lettering and blocks of all the seven colours used in the printing on the upper cover, spine lettered in green, in the original acetate jacket, plus matching portfolio of the same patterned Italian paper covered boards also in the original acetate jacket. Very mild chipping to the top of the portfolio spine otherwise a very good set. A total of seven colours are used for the 16 outstanding engravings by Hughes-Stanton, and these colours are also used to print the text, being inspired by the seven sections of the book each with a different emotional theme. Whilst illustrating this book Hughes-Stanton was driven by the text and the emotional problems confronting the principal characters: "I feel him blocked by squares or screens, and dominated by his shadow; she is fluid, and her shape is the egg; the Beast lurks in the eye (or ego); and in the second block the line entangles him, or sometimes holds them together; but eventually they break". This shorter story by James is one of his greatest. Clifton Fadiman wrote: "For me this is the best of James's shorter fictions, combining the utmost concentration of effect with the utmost inclusiveness of meaning". This special copy with the portfolio is astonishingly rare. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Broadside Set

      (San Francisco): (Four Seasons Foundation). (1963-1964). Three broadsides: Gary Snyder's Nanao Knows, Lew Welch's Step Out Onto the Planet, and Philip Whalen's Three Mornings. [McNeil A7.] Each reproduced by photo-offset from the author's own calligraphy and printed in an edition of 300 copies on the occasion of a reading by the three poets at Longshoreman's Hall, San Francisco, June 12, 1964. Each broadside is signed by its author. Snyder, Welch and Whalen first met when they attended Reed College, a progressive school in Oregon; the friends later became three of the most influential poets of the Beat generation. Don Carpenter, a friend of Richard Brautigan and an important figure in the Bay Area literary scene, organized the Free Way Reading with the three poets; Don Allen, another key figure in the Bay Area literary scene -- his nascent publishing company, the Four Seasons Foundation, would later publish both Snyder and Brautigan -- printed the broadsides to commemorate the reading. An important occasion, linking three key poets of their time. Welch disappeared in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains in 1971; Snyder found a suicide note at his camp, but no body was ever found and his fate remains one of the mysteries of that time. Each broadside is 9-1/2" x 12-1/2", with a mild edge crease in the left margin that would disappear with framing; near fine. A nice set. First Edition. No Binding.

      Cleveland, OH: Renegade Press, 1963. Second edition. Wraps. Very Good. Second edition. 8vo. Original stapled printed wraps. Very good with mild soil, rubbing, wear. One of 100 unnumbered copies. pp. [24]. PROVENANCE: Izzy Young's copy, with his contemporary ownership notation to verso. Young was a central figure throughout the 1960s NYC music and literary scenes. He founded the Folklore Center, produced Dylan's first concert in 1961 (Dylan even wrote a song for/about him, "Talking Folklore Center"), and was close to Sanders, helping to print several titles from from his Fuck You Press on the mimeo machine at the Center. Second printing (adding one poem - "Dis") of levy's third book, printed the same year as the original edition and self-published by his own Renegade Press. levy bought his first press, a used letterhead tabletop, in February 1963 and learned to print while working on this and two other volumes (FRAGMENTS OF A SHATTERED MIRROR and VARIATIONS ON FLIP) in the basement of his aunt and uncle's Cleveland home. Letter-pressed and issued in matching formats, these marked the beginning of a career that was arguably the most original to emerge from the mimeo revolution and his standing as poet, publisher, printer, free speech advocate, artist and cult figure have only grown in the decades since his death. Scarce. OCLC locates seven holdings of this edition (and just three of the earlier). One of the earliest and rarest works from this seminal poet and small press publisher, with exceptional provenance. [Kent and Horvath P-016].

        A superb and unpublished photograph of Jimi Hendrix, his girlfriend Joyce Lucas, and his guitarist Larry Lee, Nashville, 1963

      Nashville, Tennessee, 1963. 4.25" x 3.25",. "Photograph, 4.25"" x 3.25"", black and white, showing Hendrix seated beside his then girlfriend Joyce Lucas and Lawrence ""Larry"" Lee (1963-2007) in Nashville, Tennessee, November 1963 and annotated by Lee on the verso in red ink. Offered together with a second Photograph, 4.25"" x 3.25"", black and white, showing Lee at left at a night club seated with four unidentified men. Both photographs bear some scratches and discoloration to emulsion, creasing, else good condition. On the verso of the first photograph, Lee writes: ""Larry, Joyce & Jimmy Club Del Morro Nashville Tenn 1963"" Joyce Lucas was one of Hendrix's early girlfriends. A beautician and the owner of Joyce's House of Glamour, Cox and Hendrix rented a room above her shop when they first arrived in Nashville in 1962. Lawrence ""Larry"" Lee was a student at Tennessee State University, writing songs for Stax records on the side, when he first encountered Hendrix with Billy Cox at the Del Morocco, a Nashville nightclub. At first Lee thought Hendrix to be ""the worst guitar player I had ever heard."" (John McDermott, Interview with Larry Lee, Guitar World, October 2005) Looking for someone to practice with, Lee thought Hendrix a perfect fit: ""I was just happy I wasn't the worst guitar player in Nashville."" As it turned out, Hendrix had been playing a very mediocre guitar and even worse amplifier. Lee encountered Hendrix a few weeks later and was thunderstruck. Jimi had acquired a new guitar, ""and man did he surprise me! His ideas were different from other players-but he was good! Once he got that guitar, he was always great."" The pair played together with Joe Fisher and the Barnevilles and other acts (including the King Kasuals with Billy Cox). In late 1963, the pair parted: Jimi for the East Coast and Lee was drafted into the Army and spent some time in Vietnam where he was wounded. Lee hadn't been discharged for more than two weeks in mid July-1969 when he received a call from Billy Cox asking him to come and play with him and Jimi who was then forming a new group to replace the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Lee accepted the invitation, and he, together with Cox on bass, Mitch Mitchell on drums, Juma Sultan on percussion and Jerry Velez on congas, formed The Gypsy Sun & Rainbows. They spent the balance of July and early August rehearsing at an eight-bedroom house that Hendrix's management had rented for him for the summer near Shokan, New York and most famously performed at Woodstock on August 18, 1969. The combo only performed again live once, at a street festival in Harlem in September 1969 before disbanding. The same month, Lee left New York for Memphis where he established himself as a session guitarist and band director, most notably for Al Green's touring band appearing on Johnny Carson and television specials worldwide. Provenance: Lawrence Lee 1943-2007; Lee Family; Sotheby's, New York, December 17, 1991, Lot 436. These photographs were part of a larger collection of Hendrix memorabilia obtained by Lee during the 1960s. Images and copies of the other pieces in the collection, together with the original typed notes, are included for reference."

        The Beast in the Jungle

      Kentfield, California: Allen Press, 1963. One of only 15 copies with an additional portfolio of signed proofs. A Psychological Novel by Henry James. One of only 15 copies with an extra suite of 16 artist's proofs each titled, numbered 9/15 and signed by the artist in a separate portfolio. 16 wood engravings by Blair Hughes-Stanton, all printed in two colours plus one illustration in grey, green, purple, red, blue, olive, blue/green and brown. Text printed in several colours in Romanée types on Arches paper. Folio, original handmade Italian printed paper covered boards with lettering and blocks of all the seven colours used in the printing on the upper cover, spine lettered in green, in the original acetate jacket, plus matching portfolio of the same patterned Italian paper covered boards also in the original acetate jacket. Very mild chipping to the top of the portfolio spine otherwise a very good set. A total of seven colours are used for the 16 outstanding engravings by Hughes-Stanton, and these colours are also used to print the text, being inspired by the seven sections of the book each with a different emotional theme. Whilst illustrating this book Hughes-Stanton was driven by the text and the emotional problems confronting the principal characters: "I feel him blocked by squares or screens, and dominated by his shadow; she is fluid, and her shape is the egg; the Beast lurks in the eye (or ego); and in the second block the line entangles him, or sometimes holds them together; but eventually they break". This shorter story by James is one of his greatest. Clifton Fadiman wrote: "For me this is the best of James's shorter fictions, combining the utmost concentration of effect with the utmost inclusiveness of meaning". This special copy with the portfolio is astonishingly rare.

John Wood Campbell, Jr. (June 8, 1910 ?- July 11, 1971) was an American science fiction writer and editor. As editor of Astounding Science Fiction (later called Analog Science Fiction and Fact) from late 1937 until his death, he is generally credited with shaping the Golden Age of Science Fiction. Isaac Asimov called Campbell "the most powerful force in science fiction ever, and for the first ten years of his editorship he dominated the field completely." As a writer, Campbell published super-science space opera under his own name and moody stories under his primary and most famous pseudonym, Don A. Stuart. Campbell also wrote under the pen names Karl Van Kampen and Arthur McCann. He stopped writing fiction after he became editor of Astounding. (Wikipedia)

        Broadside Set

      (San Francisco): (Four Seasons Foundation). (1963-1964). Three broadsides: Gary Snyder's Nanao Knows, Lew Welch's Step Out Onto the Planet, and Philip Whalen's Three Mornings. [McNeil A7.] Each reproduced by photo-offset from the author's own calligraphy and printed in an edition of 300 copies on the occasion of a reading by the three poets at Longshoreman's Hall, San Francisco, June 12, 1964. Each broadside is signed by its author. Snyder, Welch and Whalen first met when they attended Reed College, a progressive school in Oregon; the friends later became three of the most influential poets of the Beat generation. Don Carpenter, a friend of Richard Brautigan and an important figure in the Bay Area literary scene, organized the Free Way Reading with the three poets; Don Allen, another key figure in the Bay Area literary scene -- his nascent publishing company, the Four Seasons Foundation, would later publish both Snyder and Brautigan -- printed the broadsides to commemorate the reading. An important occasion, linking three key poets of their time. Welch disappeared in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains in 1971; Snyder found a suicide note at his camp, but no body was ever found and his fate remains one of the mysteries of that time. Each broadside is 9-1/2" x 12-1/2", with a mild edge crease in the left margin that would disappear with framing; near fine. A nice set. First Edition. No Binding.

Whatever else it is, it's not that. Of course, there is a good deal of 'fiction' in it, but... For example, my publisher's first question when he had read it: 'It's great! But are you working on another novel now? It was as though he hadn't read it at all. Alex. London, March 1963." Cain's Book had been respectfully received on first publication in New York in 1960 but the London edition caused a furore and its publisher was successfully prosecuted for obscenity.

        THE SHAGGY DOG AND OTHER MURDERS

      New York: E.P. Dutton & Co., Inc., 1963., 1963. First edition. Fine in dust jacket with a hint of wear to the foot of spine. Ten short stories that deserve attention. Includes The Shaggy Dog Murders featuring a large dog that looks friendly but death seems to be present when it's around; Life and Fire and Whistler's Murder feature Henry Smith, an insurance salesman, who picks his clients poorly; they range from a gang of kidnappers to a murder suspect; Teacup Trouble is a humorous tale about a pickpocket who meets more than his match when he takes in a kleptomaniac as a roommate; Good Night, Good Knight is the story of an elegant Bowery bum, whose ambition is to act the role he lives as a blackmailer. In Beware of the Dog a friendly animal becomes more of a detriment than a hostile one; a modern-day boy starting on a life of crime discovers the value of old-fashioned ways in Little Boy Lost; Satan One-And-A-Half shows that dead cats can go visiting; Tell 'Em, Pagliaccio! proves how nice it is that an elephant never forgets. The final story, Nothing Sinister, demonstrates why men should be more suspicious of stray bullets. An elusive title and a sharp copy.
