        On Her Majesty's Secret Service (a James Bond novel)

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1963., 1963. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION, only 250 copies. IAN FLEMING'S OWN COPY. Colour frontispiece of the author by Charles Amherst Villiers. Publisher's quarter vellum over black cloth. Gilt titles to spine. In original clear plastic wrapper. A fine copy, with one chip to the crown of the jacket. The only Signed Limited Edition of an Ian Fleming book. A FINE ASSOCIATION COPY, being one of the author's personal copies (he received the first ten), and then presented to his close friend Amherst Villiers, the illustrator of this volume. Villiers ended up with three copies of this edition- this copy, and an out of series copy both given to him by Fleming, plus a later numbered copy which he personally ordered from the publisher. We have purchased all three copies from the family over the years. This particular example was then givel by Amherst to his son Charles Churchill Villiers (and as such does not have the Villiers bookplate the other two possess). It does however benefit from a loose autograph note from Amherst 'I gave this book to Charlie... I have another copy. Pa' Sold with a copy of the original sales invoice, signed by Villiers. Amherst Villiers had two children, the late Janie Villiers and Charles Churchill Villiers, godson of Sir Winston Churchill. Both made the acquaintance of Fleming bibliographer Jon Gilbert of Adrian Harrington Ltd., who interviewed them whilst researching the book. The Villiers family home was just a short walk from Harrington's bookshop in Kensington. Published in 1963, this is the second part of a collection of James Bond books that has become known as the 'Blofeld' trilogy, sitting between Thunderball (1961) and You Only Live Twice (1964). The title was filmed by Eon Productions in 1969, starring George Lazenby as 007, Diana Rigg as Tracy and Telly Savalas as Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Directed by Peter Hunt, with a terrific storyline and slick script from the ever-reliable screenwriter Richard Maibaum, O.H.M.S.S. features superb action, spectacular locations, a marvelous John Barry score, and, in Contessa Teresa de Vicenzo (aka Tracy, aka Mrs James Bond), probably the greatest Bond Girl of all time. The movie, unlike most in the series, was faithful to the original Ian Fleming novel and is a fine thriller; one of the grittiest movies of the series. Gilbert A11a.

        Correspondence regarding Book Collecting

      1963, 1963. July-December 1963. A series of letters between Ian Fleming, Percy Muir and a Canadian reader of 'The Book Collector' journal regarding a potential rare book. 5 letters, two of which are signed by Fleming; 1) An enquiry from the reader describing her book, addressed 'Dear Mr Fleming'. 2 pages, handwritten. 2) The retained carbon reply by Fleming advising the reader her enquiry has been passed to book expert Percy Muir. Typed letter, hole-punched at margin. 3) Brief typed letter to Percy Muir, apologising for enclosing the 'daft letter' of enquiry. On Mitre Court heading (Fleet Street), signed 'Ian'. 4) The retained carbon appraisal of the book from Percy Muir to the enquirer. Typed letter, hole-punched at margin. 5) Longer typed letter to Percy Muir mentioning the Book Collector, John [Hayward] and a trip to Jamaica [he owned a property 'Goldeneye' on Jamaica's North Shore]. Mitre Court heading (Fleet Street), signed 'affectionately Ian'. A fine correspondence between the 'James Bond' creator Ian Fleming and his close friend and colleague Percy Muir -Muir was a respected bibliophile who assembled Fleming's important scientific library, and both men sat on the editorial board of The Book Collector journal which was published by Fleming's Queen Anne Press. Fleming was godfather to Muir's daughter Helen. In the James Bond novel 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' (published just before the date of this correspondence) a character is named in Percy's honour; the British Agent 'Alexander Muir', Head of Station Z (Zurich), fittingly appears with a signal room hidden behind a book-lined wall.

        On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Proof and Inscribed copy

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1963, 1963. 2 copies from the collection of Aubrey Forshaw; a 1963 first impression inscribed by the author, together with an annotated proof copy [issued 1962] in the proof-only dustwrapper. The hardcover volume is in very good condition; dustwrapper a little rubbed and nicekd. With a presentation inscription to the flyleaf; "To Aubrey / who wrote some of it! / From Ian". The inscription relates to the passages corrected by Forshaw, particularly regarding motoring matters, as found within his proof copy of this title. The corrected softcover proof is in very good condition; the oversized dustwrapper has a few nicks and marks, with some creasing to the unsupprted area along the top edge. Both the book and jacket differ considerably to the published version. Laid in is a typed letter from Jonathan Cape chairman Michael Howard (drafted by Valerie Kettley) to Aubrey Forshaw, dated 10th December 1962 it reads "I finally got Ian to adopt a more intelligible variant of the offending back axle passage in OHMSS and I have checked that all the literals you marked have been corrected in the press proof. I have an idea you said you wanted your proof back and therefore return it herewith..." All three items are housed in a purpose-made quarter leather clamshell box. Provenance: Aubrey Forshaw, Managing Director of Pan Books, publisher of the James Bond novels in paperback and Ian Fleming's expert for technical information concerning James Bond's cars. It was in this respect that he was asked by Fleming to read the proof of On Her Majesty's Secret Service and correct any errors. "the offending back axle passage" referred to in Michael Howard's letter appears on page 23, with Aubrey's corrections in pencil to the margins. Further corrections, suggestions and typographical errors appear in the margins elsewhere, all of which are adopted within the first edition text. An outstanding presentation with additional manuscript material relating to the tenth James Bond novel. References: Gilbert, pages 354-356, 645-6. Gilbert A11a (1.1).

        The Feminine Mystique.

      W. W. Norton, New York 1963 - First edition of the author's classic work. Octavo, original half cloth. Fine in a very good dust jacket with some light fading to the spine. Signed by Betty Friedan on the title page. First editions are rare, especially signed. The Feminine Mystique begins with an introduction describing what Friedan called "the problem that has no name"—the widespread unhappiness of women in the 1950s and early 1960s. It discusses the lives of several housewives from around the United States who were unhappy despite living in material comfort and being happily married with fine children. "[The Feminine Mystique] now feels both revolutionary and utterly contemporary. Four decades later, millions of individual transformations later, there is still so much to learn from this book. Those who think of it as solely a feminist manifesto ought to revisit its pages to get a sense of the magnitude of the research and reporting Friedan undertook" (Anna Quindlen).

        Fifteen letters and drawings by CharlotteÕs Web illustrator Garth Williams to his daughters Jessica and Estyn, 1962-1968; 5 TLS, 2 ALS and 4 birthday cards with drawings to Jessica, 1 TLS to Estyn, and 3 TLS to both; together with 4 ink drawings: ÒYoo HooÉTarzan!Ó, ÒEstynÕs Shadow,Ó ÒJessicat,Ó and ÒMy favourite Bottles.Ó

      - GARTH WILLIAMS: LETTERS TO HIS DAUGHTERS Together with: 3 black and white snapshots of new wife Alicia and son Juan Miguel; 1Ó x 2Ó each. During this period, Williams was living in Guanajuato, Mexico with Alicia and their Juan Miguel. He signed his letters ÒPap?,Ó ÒGarth,Ó or in one instance, ÒSam Crabgrass.Ó Williams sends updates about his health, work and travel schedule, shares anecdotes about his childhood, and, most frequently, expels fatherly advice (especially to the younger Jessica). He often writes rhyming or nonsensical sentences, and in one letter, writes phonetically in a Cockney accent (ÒOwÕs me ole chum?Ó July 1, 1963). Jessica and Estyn were both teenagers during this time. In his first letter, Williams sends a brief description of his new wife Ð thirty years his junior Ð and son, ÒShe was born in Guanajuato in 1942 on Oct. 24th. Alicia. Alice in english. She is 5 foot 3 inches tall. weight 100 lbs. Dark brown eyes, black hair. Her son is Juan Miguel. He is 6 months old nowÓ (June 5, 1962). Williams sends letters filled with fatherly advice, and sometimes shares stories about his boyhood. In one letter to Jessica, Williams informs her about boys: I see from recent letters you have written that perhaps you will be like everyone else, and get mixed up with other people; not just girls, but even with those horrible creatures Ð boys. When you get mixed up with boys, you often get mixed with girls, and mixed up altogether; because it is like measles-of-the-brain, or, mumps-of-the-thumper (heart). (February 20, 1963) He goes on to share a long anecdote about when he has his first clash of the sexes Ð at age 10 Ð with two neighborhood girls named Betty and Pat, who were sisters, and concludes with the realization that ÒWhen you feel love (which you may not be) Ð no advice is any good, even when you know it is good advice), and suggests that Estyn maybe able to help her too. A couple months later, Williams writes a similar letter to Estyn, though this time, his advice is about morals: ÒYou have to work out a code to live by, when you are living by your rules you can say you are being moral. When not Ð immoral or unmoralÓ (April 29, 1963). He also tells Estyn that morals change, and that ÒWhat USED to be bad is now OK,Ó and gives the following example: My mother did all the wrong things. She smoked a pipe, rode a bicycle, wore bloomers, and ended up being chained to the railings in Hyde Park with a Mrs Pankhurst when they wanted to get the right to vote for women etc etc. Most people considered her unmoral in her behaviour. She was an art student in Paris for five years; Ð pretty dreadfulÉ. (ibid.) In a long undated letter to Jessica, Williams responds to her questions about God, admitting, ÒI donÕt know any more than you doÓ (n.d.). The explains that the topic is vast and unknowable, but suggests studying about religion and recommends that she read Santayana. It is clear that sometimes Williams masks his concern with humor, or downplays serious discussions. When he found out that Jessica had started smoking, he wrote her explaining how her genes make the habit especially dangerous for her: My reason for warning you is Ð you inherit from your mother the same tendencies. See a doctor about it. Have him check you for bad circulation. People with bad circulation cant smoke. They feel colder than everyone else. Their fat does not help. They are lousy bed fellows with far too many covers and icy feetÓ (May 4, 1967). He suggests that Jessica ÒTake peppermint, Brighton Rock, Kandy Kisses, Humbugs Lollypops Ð anything. Create a new craze Ð eating candy instead of smoking. Create a distinctive image Ð the girl who chews lemon rind. UniqueÓ (ibid.). WilliamsÕs drawings usually illustrate something about Jessica or Estyn, or something that Williams had seen. His card to Jessica for her October 1964 birthday shows her sleeping in bed, with a full stomach and a candle stuck in her belly-button, a pair of elaborate red boots discarde [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Author signed and inscribed this copy to John Dumont upon front free endpaper. "In this presentation, it will be shown that all components within every system, including all primary measurable forms of mass-energy and all complex components derived therefrom, function perpetually in accordance with the laws of motion in absolute freely-moving-body environments. It will also be shown that the bonding forces of any structural frame of any particle are nothing more and nothing less than the stability that results from pure vector mechanics in equilibria, functioning as freely-moving, composite frames, and that the stability is conserved through the instant mutual exchange of kinetic-energy-momenta... Therefore, all events should be considered purely as mechanical phenomena, and should never be considered as general or abstract phenomena." - from Introduction. Includes over a dozen black and white figures. Unmarked. Moderate wear. Binding intact. Gilt lettering upon navy backstrip and front board moderately rubbed but remains legible. A sound copy.

        EXPLORING OTHER WORLDS **Gene Roddenberry's Copy**

      New York: Collier Books, New York, 1963, 1963. An iconic copy of this paperback from the early 1960's that has an interplanetary spaceship illustrated on the front cover. This was Gene Roddenberry's copy as evidenced by his embossed stamp that is found at several places in the book. Name on embossed stamp is E.W. Roddenberry and shows a Beverly Glen address in Los Angeles. Gene Roddenberry was of course short for Eugene W. Roddenberry. This copy not an ideal copy of the book but it is THE COPY owned by Mr. Roddenberry who created the Star Trek series for television and later also for several motion pictures. The illustration on cover couldn't be much closer to the image seen at the beginning of Star Trek episodes which has the Starship Enterprise speeding towards an outer space destination. Roddenberry's embossed stamp can be found on first blank flyleaf, first page of introduction, at least two pages of text and on the final page at bottom margin. Unfortunately someone, possibly Roddenberry himself, tore off part of the stamp on last page and took part of a line of text with it. There is also a corner torn off the title page at upper right where presumably there was also an embossed stamp or something else Roddenberry or someone else did not want to stay with the book Since embossings do not stand out like bookplates or writing in name of owner, it seems likely the aim was to tear off all ownership detail but the person doing the tearing off missed the embossed name and address on front endpaper and the ones that were applied on top of text. There are at least four embossed stamps remaining and part of a fifth on the last page. The stampings on pages of text blend in to varying degrees with the printed text, but the stamping on front endpaper is easily readable in full. Another condition issue is wear to right edge of front cover resulting in small edge loss to front cover and some pages of the book near beginning, but not affecting the front cover illustration or any text. This paperback came out in 1963 when Roddenberry was planning the Star Trek series. It is interesting to speculate what contents of this paperback, which is an anthology of several science fiction space short stories, might have influenced Roddenberry as he envisioned the series. It is perhaps worthy of note that one of the stories in the book features a planet called Vulcan (where Spock is from according to the tv series.) This story titled "At The Center Of Gravity" is by Ross Rocklynne. Perhaps most interesting is text from the beginning of the last short story in the book, by Sam Moskowitz, titled "Man Of The Stars." First sentence reads, "Thousands of men have spun a trail of daring adventure and pioneering in the spaceways." And later is the phrase, "Pioneers who blasted open the greatest frontier of them all..." Is it too much to think that these lines influenced the writing of the opening lines of each episode of Star Trek spoken by William Shatner? In any event, this paperpack is obviously no mere paperback but is instead a valuable relic of a television legend. . First Paperback Edition. Soft Cover. Fair. Octavo, 256pp. GENE RODENBERRY]S COPY.

        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", and mildly sunned as though previously framed; near fine. A nice set. First Edition. No Binding.
