        A superb and unpublished photograph of Jimi Hendrix, his girlfriend Joyce Lucas, and his guitarist Larry Lee, Nashville, 1963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

Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. The coverart all intact and in excellent condition. Only very few issues a little frail and the spines with very minor damages. 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.

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.

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.

This book was the winner of the Faulkner Foundation Award for best first novel of the year. "This will almost certainly be the most original novel published in 1963. It is a wild, macabre tale of the twentieth century and of two men." .

        Portrait of Myself

      New York: Simon and Schuster,, 1963. Quarto. Original black cloth-backed green boards, titles to spine in green, reproduction of author's signature blocked to front board in black. With the photographic dust jacket. Together with: typed letter signed by the author, two typed letters signed from Time magazine to Wilma Smith Leland, all on A4 laid paper; silver gelatin print of the author (138 × 106 mm); 6 promotional photogravures for the University of Columbia from photographs by Bourke-White with her facsimile signature (143 × 85 mm). Housed in a custom quarter black morocco solander box. Illustrated with some 70 half-tone photographs as plates and to the text. Extremities negligibly bumped. An excellent copy in the price-clipped dust jacket lightly chipped at head and foot of spine and a touch rubbed along extremities. Silver gelatin print faintly creased along top-right corner with pencil annotations and ink-stamp on verso, Time letters tanned along top edge, otherwise clean and crisp, photogravures excellent. First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in blue ink, "For: Wilma Smith Leland, my dear friend of long ago, Sincerely Margaret Bourke-White", together with a clutch of ephemera tracing the early days of this relationship, and of Bourke-White's career, 30 years before. Bourke-White first took up photography as a hobby while at university. She studied at Columbia and Michigan before eventually graduating from Cornell in 1927 and establishing herself as an industrial and architectural photographer. "She soon gained a reputation for originality, and in 1929 the publisher Henry Luce hired her for his new Fortune magazine. In 1930 Fortune sent Bourke-White to photograph the Krupp Iron Works in Germany, and she continued on her own to photograph the First Five-Year Plan in the Soviet Union" (Ency. Brit.) The first letter in this succinct collection is Bourke-White's typed response to a request for an article, signed by her in blue ink and addressed to "Mrs Leland F. Leland, Alpha Omicrom Pi, 313 Twelfth Street, Neenah, Wisconsin", dated 11 January 1932 and with the letterhead of Bourke-White's New York studio incorporating her signature in facsimile: "Dear Mrs. Leland, Yes indeed I am the same Margaret Bourke-White! In regard to your request for material for an article both by and about me, I am so busy writing articles on my last Russian trip for the New York Times and other magazines that I could hardly squeeze in time to do an article, but if you wish to send someone in to interview me, I shall be very glad to give her a few facts and a photograph or two if you wish. Sincerely yours, Margaret Bourke-White". Leland (née Smith) and Bourke-White were both members of the Alpha Omicron Pi sorority at the universities of Minnesota and Michigan respectively, and Leland would go on to serve the society as National President and editor of its magazine, To Dragma: it seems likely that Leland was hoping to produce a piece if not for To Dragma then for some type of sorority newsletter. While it is unclear whether or not the suggested interview ever took place, two additional typed letters from Time Magazine - dated 25 and 29 February, 1932 - appear to respond to Leland's request for a "cutting" (photograph) of Bourke-White, though this is apparently not the enclosed silver gelatin print of the photographer on the bonnet of a jeep, which on the verso bears the ink-stamp of Life magazine: a title which only began publication in 1936. The final item is a collection of six promotional photogravures of the University of Columbia taken by Bourke-White, presumably dating from her early days as an architectural photographer before she found fame with work done further afield.

        A Sense of Reality

      London: The Bodley Head, 1963., 1963. Author's own signed copy, with letter. First Edition. Octavo. Bound in publisher's green cloth with gilt titles to spine. Stylized dust wrapper shows titles against an abstract green and black background to front cover, titles in black to spine, with publisher's advertisement to rear cover; unclipped, originally priced 35s. Binding shows minor shelfwear. Dust wrapper equally bright, with trivial rubbing and one small tear to upper. Autographed on title-page, with accompanying statement signed by Greene on headed letter of literary scholar R.A. Gekoski, certifying that this copy was the author's 'own personal file copy, and bears [his] ownership signature'. This is a selection of four short stories, in which Greene experiments with a somewhat more expressionist mode of writing. The stories are preoccupied with dreams, and are thematically in keeping with Greene's novel-length studies of darker psychological and social tension. It represents the author's only fantasy collection, the final story 'A Discovery In the Woods', being Greene's only attempt at science fiction.

        The Robinson Crusoe of Suvarov Island

      1963. First edition. Photo on title-page of Tom Neale. [2], 17 pp. Printed rectos only. 1 vols. 4to. Staple bound, pages a little toned around the edges. Very good. First edition. Photo on title-page of Tom Neale. [2], 17 pp. Printed rectos only. 1 vols. 4to. A KIWI HERMIT ON SUWARRO. [with] PARKINSON, John Jr. Yarns for Davy Jones. Frontispiece & 16 full page illustrations. [viii], 146 pp. 8vo. Privately printed for the author, 1966. First edition. Original red buckram, spine and upper board gilt. Presentation inscription to front free endpaper. Although there had been some notices in the press in the 1950s, The Robinson Crusoe of Suvarov Island is probably the first extended piece on Tom Neale, the New Zealander who spent 15 years in total on Suwarrow. It appears in a much revised format in Yarns for Davy Jones, both of which are very rare and are included here. It also precedes Neale's autobiography, An Island to Oneself, published in 1966. Suvarov (Suwarrow) Island was discovered in 1814 by Mikhail Lazarev. It is half a mile long and 400 yards wide with one of the finest lagoons in the South Pacific. Parkinson spent three days there in 1963 with his wife and Mr and Mrs Drayton Cochrane who were circumnavigating in stages on the Westward. They were surprised to find the island was inhabited. Unknown to all but very few people, Tom Neale, the New Zealand sailor and survivalist, had been living on the island since 1960 and "it was not surprising he talked almost incessantly, chiefly about his experiences on Suvarov." It transpired that this was his second stint on the island, having previously lived there 1952-4. In between visits "he married a Tongan woman and had two children but" Parkinson states, "his return to Suvarov without her is not unusual by South Pacific standards." He remained on the island until 1964. Parkinson's description of their encounter with Neale is one of great admiration and fascination and accordingly filled with details of his life and notes the people who'd visited him over the years. His final and longest stay on the island was from 1967-77. He published an autobiography in 1966 which allowed him to purchase a significant amount of provisions and return to Suwarrow, it was illness that forced him to leave the island. Neale was born in Wellington, in 1902 though moved to Greymouth and then Timaru as a child. He joined the New Zealand navy as an apprentice engineer though bought himself out after four years and commenced his peripatetic life. OCLC locates four copies of Parkinson's Yarns for Davy Jones, all in the US. Parkinson spent a good deal of his life at sea and related numberous anecdotes here, including some from serving in the Pacific in the closing stages of World War Two and also witnessing the atomic tests at Bikini Atoll. Parkinson's visit to Suwarrow island came as part of a cruise he made with his wife and others in 1963. The schooner Westward was completing a circumnavigatoin and they joined her at Tahiti before proceding to Bora Bora and then laying a course for American Samoa. Not in OCLC

        Fasciculus medicinae [SIGNED]

      Lucca: Azienda Grafica Lucchese, 1963. Facsimile edition. Hardcover. f to fine. 1/350. Folio. [108]pp. Uncut. Original gilt-stamped morocco, with gold lettering on covers. Uncut. Illustrated title page. Limitation page signed by editor Carlo Hautmann. Book housed in its original marbled cardboard slipcase. Striking facsimile of the second Venetian edition (1493) of Johannes de Ketham's monumental "Fasciculus medicinae," a collection of short medical treatises edited by Ketham himself, many of which are from the medieval period. The book was first published in Venice in 1491, and was the first printed book to contain anatomical illustrations. The ten handsome full-page woodcut illustrations (including one in color: the Dissection scene) influenced artists for some time, such as William Hogarth's "Four Stages of Cruelty" (1751). The illustration on title depicts Petrus de Montagnana, a physician, reading and writing at his desk in his library. Influential medical texts are placed around the desk and on a shelf above his head. At the bottom of the image are three patients. Two patients are seated. One appears to be praying the rosary while the other is holding his head. The standing patient carries a basket and a walking stick. One of 350 copies, of which this is No. 22. Moderate rubbing along edges of slipcase. Spine missing on binding. Text in Italian. Slipcase in overall good, binding in fair, interior in near fine to fine condition.
