        A set of all four Beatles signatures obtained in England in July 1963

      Beatles Signatures, "love Paul McCartney XXX,""Ringo Starr XXX,""love from John Lennon XXX,""love from George Harrison XXX,"1p., 8" x 10", [July 1963], [Margate, England]. Waterstained but completely legible with light marginal wear. Good-plus condition.The signatures were obtained by a fan in July 1963 during a six day series of concerts at the Winter Gardens in Margate, England. Unfortunately for the devoted fan, the sheet had a run-in with water, which has blurred some of the signatures. Despite its flaws, the lovingly typewritten titles, with other handwritten embellishments, make for a wonderful memento from the Beatles' early days before they "went big" in America the following year. Includes Roger Epperson Certificate of Authenticity.

        Jawbreakers (UNIQUE ASSOCIATION COPY)

      Toronto, Ontario: Contact Press, 1963. Card covers. Near Fine. 54 pp. Light card covers printed in red and black in dust wrapper. 8vo., 1 of 200 copies printed in near-fine condition.Light edgewear and a few creases to covers.

The inscription likely dates from the mid-&#39;60&#39;s when "People&#39;s Poet" Acorn was living in Vancouver. He used to hang out in a coffee house named The Advance Mattress Company, and was involved politically with the LSA (League for Socialist Action), a Trotskyite organization. Joe Irving was a folk singer and a poet in residence at the LSA offices on Granville Street. Richard Stanley "Red" Lane (1936-1964) was the older brother of poet Patrick Lane and a promising West Coast poet in his own right. Joe Rosenblatt got his early start as a poet with assistance from Acorn, Al Purdy and Earle Birney. Lionel Kearns was a young poet at UBC and a member of the original Tish group.

In a madcap, sometimes sad, frequently hilarious way, it captures the ruthlessness and multiplicity of the modern world. Incident piles on incident until, in what amounts almost to a revelation, the pattern of the book and the century it describes emerge with a terrible beauty."(from rear flap) A first edition of Thomas Pynchon&#39;s debut novel, in first issue dust jacket with list of chapter numbers & headings. Still being parsed & analyzed, this is a dense, surreal dream-narrative that launched the Pynchon legend & is a landmark of twentieth-century American literature. As Mark Hayden writes, "fans regularly proclaim Pynchon as the father and most intricate designer of postmodern hip lit. There&#39;s something to this. The writer name-checks and digresses more than any writer since Kerouac, with his wanderlust ramblings. Pynchon proves more verbose than Vonnegut or Salinger too. I mention these specific writers because their themes turn up in V., as protagonist Benny Profane searches, like Sal Paradise or Holden Caulfield, for place and identity."(from a review in We are proud to offer this most important literary collectible in exceptionally fine condition among those available.

        Black to Black and other Poems.

      Carfax, London 1963 - Hardcover. Octavo. 32pp. Black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Black dust jacket starkly lettered in white. The first hundred copies of this edition were supposed to have been numbered and signed on the limitation page, but it seems unlikely that this was done as we have never seen a copy marked thus. While this copy is neither numbered or signed on the limitation page, it is inscribed in Grant's handwriting: "Kenneth / to / Kenneth / Spring 1963" (an obvious play on the book's title "Black to Black") on the half title page. As this was presumably the time of publication, it is tempting to speculate that this may once have been Grant's own copy, although the possibility remains that he inscribed it for a namesake although it is then hard to explain why he didn't sign and number it. "Black to Black" contains fifteen poems and is the first volume of poetry to be published by Kenneth Grant. From Grant's preface: "Prose is a record of experience, whereas all real poetry is experience itself, both for the poet and his reader. Where prose achieves this quality it is no longer prose, but poetry, regardless of its form or structure. Poetry is therefore a means of knowing Reality - it is direct experience - and this Reality does not consist in what is experienced but in the act of experiencing itself. Similarly, it matters little of what we are conscious; the object of consciousness has value only insofar as it proves the presence of consciousness. Likewise, poetry has an arbitrary content, being an experience of Reality on levels which transcend the contingent, such as the actual content of the poem, its structure, and accidental accessories conditioned by time and place. Poetry is the means of experience as well as being the experience itself, in the same sense that the Prajna and the Upaya are identical." The faintest of bruising to spine ends, paper lightly browned, otherwise a lovely near Fine copy and very scarce, especially with a contemporary inscription. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Als twee druppels water. (Scenario naar de roman "De Donkere Kamer van Damocles" van W.F. Hermans.

      Originele filmpromotieprospectus, Cineurope Film/ Hafbo, [1963], geniet/ in losse bladen zoals uitgegeven - bevattende: gestencilde synopsis (2 bladen); synopsis (variant, 1 blad); rolverdeling op geel papier; biografische lijst op groen papier (o.m. van W.F.H. en Fons Rademakers); lijst van technische medewerkers op roze papier (met o.m. Ed van der Elsken als 'Assistent Camera, Stillfotograaf'); foto-geïllustreerd promotie-boek (8 pagina's, 30 x 23 cm.) met 19 foto-stills (incl. vooromslag) door Ed van der Elsken, vormgeving: Wim Wandel; 5 originele film-stills (silverprints, 24 x 18 cm.) door Ed van der ELSKEN (elk met copyright stempel 'Hafbo' op verso, alle behalve één (een Nan Los close-up) tevens gereproduceerd in het promotie-boek), alles tezamen in orig. geniet portfolio met fotografische afbeelding door Ed van der Elsken (portfolio en foto's met punaisegaten in de hoeken).* Gezocht. De synopsis is een uiterst zeldzaam, oorspronkelijk stuk proza door Hermans, waarvan Hermans zélf de auteur is. De film-stills vormen een zeldzame reeks originele foto's door één van de belangrijkste Nederlandse fotografen. Het promotie-boek is een oorspronkelijk en zeer zeldzaam fotoboek door Van der Elsken. Het geheel vormt het prospectus voor een film die geldt als mijlpaal in de Nederlandse filmgeschiedenis.Zowel regisseur Fons Rademakers als auteur Hermans hadden een zware dobber aan de totstandkoming van de film. Hermans zag zich geconfronteerd met grote problemen en slepende rechtszaken in zijn pogingen geen royalties af te hoeven staan aan uitgever Van Oorschot. Hermans schreef een nieuw scenario gebaseerd op hetzelfde boek, maar Rademakers wees dat af als te omvangrijk. Tot Hermans onvrede volgde Rademakers zijn eigen scenario met gebruikmaking van enkele ideeën van Hermans (o.m. de controversiële slotscène). Hermans verloor alle vertrouwen in het project en spuwde zijn gal in het openbaar waar hij maar kon, vooral om zichzelf voor kritiek op het resultaat te beschermen. Ook om zich te beschermen schreef hij anoniem een synopsis van de film, gebaseerd op zijn eigen scenario in plaats van op die van Rademakers. De film werd echter alom geprezen als een hoogtepunt in de Nederlandse filmproductie en was met een begroting van Hfl. 620.000 de eerste Nederlandse mega-productie. Biermagnaat Freddie Heineken werd bereid gevonden te participeren, echter onder de strikte voorwaarde dat zijn toenmalige vriendin Nan Los een belangrijke rol in de film zou mogen spelen. Los kreeg die rol in de figuur van Marianne. Heineken verwierf met de participatie de filmrechten en in 1969, toen zijn relatie met Los was beëindigd, verbood hij verdere circulatie en vertoning van de film. Uiteindelijk werd de film pas in 2002 opnieuw uitgebracht.
