      Boston:: Little, Brown. [1963]. First edition. Actually published in 1963, although copyright page states 1959. First issue, lacking the dedication page. Starosciak, in his 1971 bibliography of Salinger, estimated that 30 advance copies without the dedication page were printed. There may have been more but this state/issue is quite scarce. The book is a little faded on spine and the bottom back hinge is a little sprung but still very good in a very good to near fine dust jacket very slightly toned at spine and with a few tiny chips and rubbed spots.

      [Frankfurt am Main]: Suhrkamp Verlag, 1963 & 1964.. Two volumes. 529,[6];423,[6]pp. Uniform publisher's charcoal gray linen, silk markers. A couple of marginal finger smudges toward the rear of the first volume, otherwise very good or better, in modestly nicked and chipped dust jackets with some hand soiling to the spines. First collective edition of these translations printed parallel with the French or English texts, including the first appearance in book form of "Act Sans Paroles II." The German translations were accomplished by Elmar Tophoven. An excellent association set, inscribed in each volume by Beckett to his friends Jack and Gloria [MacGowran]: "for Jack & Gloria with love & gratitude Sam Paris Feb. 1964" and "for Jack & Gloria with love from Sam Paris Jan. 1965." Jack MacGowran (1918-1973) was closely identified with several major roles in Beckett's plays, including that of Lucky in Godot at the Royal Court Theatre and the Obie winning off-Broadway anthology, "MacGowran in the works of Beckett." Until his premature death at the age of 54, he and his wife Gloria remained among Beckett's closest and most constant friends. F&F 270 & 34.3.

        Typescript]: Cleopatra's Car [a chapter in Second Skin]

      1963 - Thirty page typescript, with a one page Typed Letter Signed by Donald Barthelme. Loose sheets attached by a staple with some rubbing, a crease to the final sheet, and some wear near the staple, near fine. The letter is very good or better with moderate toning and an indentation from a paper clip. The original typescript of "Cleopatra's Car," a chapter from Hawkes's 1964 book *Second Skin*, with a few scattered corrections in an unknown hand and with substantial differences from the final published version. Hawkes's name and address are in the upper left-hand corner but have been struck through in pencil and the address of the book's publisher, New Directions, is written underneath with a note referencing *Second Skin*, in publisher James Laughlin's hand. This chapter was apparently submitted for publication to the literary magazine *Location* but, according to the accompanying TLS from editor Donald Barthelme, was "not quite what we're looking for." Accompanied by a first edition of *Second Skin* (New York: New Directions 1964, fine in near fine dustwrapper).

      New York: E.P. Dutton & Co., Inc., 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The dress and belt are accompanied by a box of Prym's Super Steel Sonomor satin pins which also contains a tape measure, together with a small swatch of the same fabric used for the dress, all housed in a manila White House envelope. The dress is in overall excellent condition bearing only a few very minor stains toward the hem, together with some mild fraying to one end of the belt.

      [Chicago, 1963]. First Edition. Near fine. 8 pp. on eight leaves (typed on rectos only). 8.5 x 5.5 inches. First page inscribed, "7-1-63 Weinstein Bros. Chapel 1300." Second page signed or inscribed, "Rabbi [or "Robbi"] Fischer." With newspaper clippings of Bamberg's obituaries in the Chicago Daily News, June 29, 1963, and the Chicago Tribune, June 30, 1963. Near fine, laid into a copy of Bamberg's scarce 1952 memoir, OKITO ON MAGIC... (a very good copy in a fair dust jacket with significant loss to the rear panel). Theodore Bamberg (1875-1963) was the sixth generation of a great Dutch dynasty of necromancers, conjurers, and royal court magicians, the inventor of many of the early 20th century's most brilliant magical apparatuses, and, as Okito, a performer legendary for his artistry and elegance upon the stage. In his later life, after losing all of his equipment and possessions to the Nazis during World War II, moving to Chicago, and publishing OKITO ON MAGIC in 1952, Bamberg began to fade into obscurity and solitude, "alone and living a spartan life in a second-rate hotel in Chicago," as David Meyer documented in INCLINED TOWARD MAGIC (Chicago, 2003, p. 85). & & Bamberg's son Donald visited his father from the Netherlands shortly before the former's death in 1963. Meeting with Theodore's friends, magician Jay Marshall and magic dealer Joe Palen, father and son asked that Theodore might be given a Christian funeral, which Marshall communicated to author of the present eulogy. Theodore died June 28, and his memorial service was held July 1, officiated by this document's author, evidently a Christian minister and friend to the magic community. & & In addition to the eulogy, the document includes scriptural readings and an obituary that was evidently the source for Bamberg's death notices in the Chicago papers. The eulogy sensitively acknowledges the Bambergs' Jewish background and Donald's imprisonment at Dachau, and it commemorates Bamberg's life and career with a series of affectionate reminiscences, including the author's own. The eulogist writes a warm account of his first exposure to Okito as an eleven-year-old boy in Kansas City. Having just lost their mother, he and his sister were given two dollars each by their father to spend on their own gifts for Christmas: & & "We both went straight to Emery Bird Thayer's, a large downtown department store in K.C. We went straight up to the fifth floor - the toy department. I had not been there two minutes before a man behind a counter called me over close. He shook out a little red handkerchief, pushed it into his fist, made some magic passes… and the handkerchief was gone! Can I do it? Yes, he said. Just buy this $2.00 magic set. You’ll get this trick and a dozen others. I don’t know how he knew what I wanted…. I don’t know how he knew how much money I had - $2.00. But that did it. & & "The few days from then till Christmas seemed like years. I devoured every line of the book of instructions of Gilbert's Mysto Magic, and read in between the lines. One of the tricks was a version of the Okito Coin Box. That was my introduction to Theodore Bamberg (p. 6)." & & Later, the author met Okito in person: & & "During these years his name ha[d] been a legend to all of us. I remember going into Joe Berg's magic store at 30 West Washington. Joe apparently was out, and an elderly gentleman came out from behind the partition. I asked him his name. 'Okito - Theodore Bamberg.' I looked at him with unbelieving eyes. I was as amazed and stricken with awe as I was when I first saw the ancient walled city and castle at Carcasonne, in souther[n] France. I was as entranced as I was when I first saw suits of real armor, such as knights wore in days of yore, in the museum at the Doge's palace in Venice. & & "All of us have been entranced by Okito since that time (p. 6)." & & A significant and moving document, from the final parting of one of 20th-century magic's most influential and beloved figures.

        Collector, The

      Jonathan Cape, London 1963 - First Impression of the author's important first novel. 8vo: 283, [1]pp. Publisher's rust-colored cloth with a matching top stain and the spine stamped in gilt; in a price-clipped first issue (without reviews) dust jacket illustrated by Tom Adams. A Fine, bright example, probably unread, with a crimp to the head of the spine; in a just about Fine jacket, save for light soiling to the white back panel. This issue was preceeded by the very scarce black boards issue, and possibly an even scarcer grey boards one before that. It is however still hard to find, especially in this condition. A psychological thriller (and instant bestseller) about a repressed council clerk and butterfly collector, Edward Clegg, who kidnaps an art student, the talented, beautiful Miranda Grey. (The William Wyler film starred Terence Stamp and Samantha Eggar.) Almost the entire novel is set in the claustrophobic confines of the cellar where Clegg keeps Miranda until she eventually dies of pneumonia. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Editorial Seix Barral, Barcelona 1963 - First Printing. Octavo; publisher's cream self-wrappers, printed in black and red; 10 pp. insert on pale orange paper regarding the judging and presentation of El Premio Biblioteca Breve, [1] fold-out map, 343pp, [6]. Spine lightly sunned, foxing to upper edge of text, with a few chips to yapped edges, and a 1.75 inch closed tear along upper rear hinge; still Very Good+ withal, and clean throughout. The photo-illustrated dustjacket measures 3/8 inch taller than the book, resulting in some tears and associated creasing, and two shallow chips to upper and lower left corners at spine ends; some light, scattered soil and wear along edges to note otherwise - a presentable, Very Good+ example. The Nobel Prize-winner's first novel, based very loosely on events in the author's teenage years. The story is set in a boys' military academy in Lima, Peru, similar to an academy Vargas Llosa attended. Due to the incendiary portrayal of certain authoritarian figures, as well as frank portrayals of homosexuality and an act of bestiality, the novel was banned in Peru, and copies of the book were burned in protest at the academy that served as the model for the fictional setting. Basis for a 1985 film adaptation directed by Francisco Lombardi, and quite scarce in any sort of presentable dustjacket. [Attributes: First Edition]
