        Horse Under Water.

      Jonathan Cape 1963 - UNCORRECTED PROOF COPY, light creasing at top corner of a handful of leaves, pp. 255, foolscap 8vo, original green printed wrappers, a little rubbed to edges with some very light soiling, light foxing to textblock edges and at head of rear free endpaper, ink numeral at head of flyleaf, original proof dustjacket with a little cracking and discolouration to laminate edges, head of backstrip panel a touch frayed, very good The author’s second book. The scarce proof dustjacket differs to that of the published version in a few notable respects: the various ephemeral items beneath the skull were felt to be too many and the image on the first edition is duly less cluttered, the publisher’s blurb on the rear cover was changed, whilst the front flap of the proof dustjacket carries an amusing image of Deighton observing the ‘high-speed dressing’ of two Royal Navy frogmen. (Milward-Oliver, p. 28)

        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]

        The Universal Unified Field Law and The Law of Universal Creation of Mass-Energy *SIGNED BY AUTHOR*

      Universal Science Foundation, Phoenix, AZ, 1963, Hard Cover, Book Condition: Good+, First Edition, SignedSize: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall, 281 pages. 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.

As with most (and perhaps all) of the special copies, ?"signed?" is noted in pink ink on the front cover in an unknown hand, and there are holograph corrections by Denby to six of the poems (in one case, the restoration of an entire line). The September 1963 issue of Berrigan's now-legendary journal, devoted to the still-neglected poems of Edwin Denby, with the almost infamous Warhol silkscreen covers. The covers on copies of this issue, reportedly executed by Berrigan himself, vary considerably, essentially constituting a Warhol multiple as much as an edition. The compelling front cover image on this copy is sharper and more complete than is usual. Reva Wolf's estimate of the importance of these images is worth quoting in full: "This is the first-known instance in which Warhol used Polaroids for silkscreen portraits, a practice he did not pursue at the time but one to which he would return and which would become his standard procedure for making portraits, beginning in 1970. Even his editorial approach to the C portraits—thoughtfully selecting a few photographs out of several he had shot— would become a customary step in his production of later Polaroid portraits. A comparison of five rejected Polaroids from the Denby and Malanga sitting to the two images he chose to use for the C cover reveals that Warhol selected for the cover those images that were most legible, most centered compositionally, and that would set up a clear narrative which moved from a formal portrait on the front cover—a witty homosexual parody of conventional portrayals of husbands and wives—to an intimate exchange on the back cover" (Andy Warhol, Poetry, and Gossip in the 1960s, p. 22). She also notes regarding the back cover image, ?"Malanga has recalled unhesitatingly that for this photograph Warhol had specifically instructed him to bend over and kiss Denby.?" Uncommon, historically important, and poignant beyond all the ironies.

        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; 1?" x 2?" each. During this period, Williams was living in Guanajuato, Mexico with Alicia and their Juan Miguel. He signed his letters ?'Pap?,?" ?'Garth,?" or in one instance, ?'Sam Crabgrass.?" 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 (?'OwÕs me ole chum??" 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, ?'She 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 now?" (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 ?'When 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: ?'You 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 unmoral?" (April 29, 1963). He also tells Estyn that morals change, and that ?'What USED to be bad is now OK,?" 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, ?'I donÕt know any more than you do?" (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 feet?" (May 4, 1967). He suggests that Jessica ?'Take 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. Unique?" (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 discarded at the foot of the bed, with the instruction to ?'Eat too much, drink too much, and sleep late Ð the secret of a lovely life Ð by J.W./We hope your birthday boots are keeping your tootsies warm?" (October 1964); ?'EstynÕs Shadow?" shows a slim Estyn in profile with eyes downcast, with a bosomy and full-skirted shadow behind her (1964); ?'Jessicat?" is a portrait of JessicaÕs face, with cat-like eyes and paws (1964); and ?'My favourite Bottles?" features two bottles labeled ?'Foot Lotion?" and ?'Reducing Balm,?" with human-like proportions.
