        Concert Program for the April 12, 1963 Bob Dylan Concert at Town Hall

      New York: Town Hall, 1963. New York: Town Hall, 1963. First edition. Loose Sheets. Very Good. Single sheet of paper, folded once to form a four page booklet. The rare concert program for Dylan's show at Town Hall at 123 West 43rd Street. The front cover displays a black and white photograph of the venue. Inside, the program reproduces the full two pages of lyrics to Dylan's My Life In A Stolen Minute". Faint fold to paper, a very good example overall of this rare piece of Dylan ephemera. His first major solo concert at a significant New York concert venue. It occurred just after the release of his first album. This concert which was produced by Harold Leventhal was never officially recorded.

        THE BENDER

      London: Secker & Warburg, (1963).. London:: Secker & Warburg. (1963). First edition. INSCRIBED, "With all best wishes. Paul Scott / Swanwich 1965." Lightly penciled note on pastedown indicates it was signed at the Writer's Summer School where Scott was the principle speaker. Additionally SIGNED on title page, where he has crossed out his name. Novel of wit; its characters, while amusingly drawn, are not comic caricatures. Its use of language, voice and narrative presages THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN and its sequels. The book and red top stain would be near fine but for some foxing on the front and bottom page edges; in a wraparound pictorial dust jacket with two closed tears to bottom front panel with creasing between and some light wear and soiling. Still, a nice copy and scarce inscribed.

        One Day In the Life of Ivan Denisovich

      New York: Praeger, 1963.. New York: Praeger, 1963. First American edition of the Nobel Prize-winning author's first book and what many consider his masterpiece. Octavo, original black cloth. Inscribed and dated by Solzhenitsyn in 1976. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with the lighest of shelfwear. A beautiful copy; rare signed and inscribed. Alexander Solzhenitsyn's first book, is an "economical, relentless novel is one of the most forceful artistic indictments of political oppression in the Stalin-era Soviet Union" (The New York Times). The simply told story of a typical, grueling day of the titular character's life in a labor camp in Siberia, is a modern classic of Russian literature and quickly cemented Solzhenitsyn's international reputation upon publication. "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich yields, more than anything else, a beautiful sense of its author as a Chekhovian figure: simple, free of literary affectation, wholly serious" (The New Republic).

        The Wanderer

      New York: : Alfred A. Knopf, , 1963.. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1963. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a very good dust jacket. Inscribed by the author on the half title page. Additionally signed by Hayden opposite the title page. Sterling Hayeden was at the peak of his earning power as a movie star when he suddenly quit. He walked out on Hollywood, walked out of a shattered marriage, defied the courts, broke as an outlaw, set sail with his four children in the schooner Wanderer--bound for the South Seas. His attempt to escape launched his autobiography. An impressive writer. "Like Fitzgerald, Hayden is a romantic. His writing about the sea evokes echoes of Conrad and McFee, of London and Galsworthy...Beautifully done" (The Los Angeles Times).

        Wild Things

      Original pencil drawing, 11.375 x 7.875 inches (image on tracing paper). Signed by Sendak at the lower right of the illustration. Image depicts five children and a dog playing between serif capitalized block letters which spell out "Wild Things". A fine copy, without any tears or blemishes. Matted in white, in a smooth black wood frame. A charming piece of Sendakiana, referencing his most famous work, Where the Wild Things Are (1963), which he both wrote and illustrated. Wild Things is a sketch done in the style of Sendak's preliminary drawings. As part of his pre-publication process, Sendak would create a preliminary drawing in pencil (often on tracing paper), which would be followed by a final drawing in ink or watercolor (often on archival paper) before being sent to the publisher. Accordingly, preliminary drawings show Sendak's illustrations in their earliest state and provide fascinating insight into the artist's creative process. For example, this sketch already shows evidence of Sendak's revisions: the second child from the right, the boy holding onto "H" and "I," has had his left leg repositioned, and the second child from the left, who straddles letters "I," "L," and "D," has a fully drawn torso and lower body, but her head not been added. Like his other written and illustrated works, Sendak drew on his own life and experiences for inspiration for this title sketch. The dog peeking behind the "T" in this illustration is based on Sendak's Sealyham terrier named Jennie, who made appearances in Kenny's Window (1956), What Do You Say, Dear? (1958), and was Max's dog in Where the Wild Things Are. In 1967, Jennie starred in Higglety Pigglety Pop!: Or, There Must Be More to Life, which tells the story of a little dog who "had it all" but left her master to find a deeper meaning to life. Sendak wrote this novel as a valentine to Jennie shortly after her death as part of his grieving process. Sendak featured sketches of Jennie and other familiar characters in letters to friends and as part of his ephemeral art, including the mural he created for his friends' children Nina and Larry Chertof on their NYC apartment wall in 1961, now on permanent display at the Rosenbach Museum and Library in Philadelphia.. Signed by Author. Pencil Drawing. Fine.

      Cape 1963 - First edition. Original white buckram backed boards in pictorial dustwrapper. A dedication copy, inscribed by Fleming on the title page to friend and colleague, Denis Hamilton, quoting the printed dedication, "To "A man called 'CD'" from Ian. Further annotated "CDH" by Fleming on the reverse of the front flap of the dustwrapper, indicating that this was probably one of a handful of author's copies marked for presentation. A fine copy in a near fine dustwrapper, with just a hint of wear to the spine ends, but quite bright on the pink spine, which is susceptible to sun damage. Illustrated throughout with black and white photographic plates. Charles Denis Hamilton, affectionately known as CD, met Fleming on the staff of the Sunday Times (which Hamilton was to become editor of in 1961) after the war. They became firm friends and Hamilton urged Fleming to start writing novels. In 1961 Hamilton tended to Fleming when he collapsed with a heart attack during an editorial conference. Thrilling Cities began as a series of articles undertaken by Fleming for the Sunday Times, once again at Hamilton's insistence, "Partly to please Thomson and Denis Hamilton, who disclosed some of their plans for the Sunday Times to him, Fleming showed himself eager to take part in them and agreed to undertake the round-the-world trip and, if it came off, to do a companion series of articles on European cities." (Pearson). In his Author's Note to the book, Fleming writes, "Nothing remains but to dedicate this biased, cranky but at least zestful hotchpotch to my friends and colleagues on the Sunday Times in London and abroad, and particularly to a man called 'C.D.', who pulled the trigger."

        Collection of 14 autograph letters and cards and original photographs from Jacqueline Kennedy to Margot Fonteyn

      An important collection of 14 autograph letters and cards and original photographs from Jacqueline Kennedy to Margot Fonteyn. The collection includes: A four-page autograph letter, signed, "Jacqueline Kennedy" June 5, 1963. Written on White House stationery, with hand addressed envelope. To "My dear Dame Margot," inviting Margot Fonteyn to dance at the White House. A four page autograph letter signed, "Jackie", April 30th (1965), to "Dear Dame Margot." With matching envelope with "Mrs John F. Kennedy" printed on flap, franked with Jacqueline Kennedy stamp, and hand addressed by her to "Dame Margot Fonteyn de Arias." On dancing with Rudolph Nureyev after a dinner party. Excerpts: "...Please tell Rudi - I can' t call him Mr. Nureyev after stepping on his feet for an hour - that he is the sweetest most tolerant dancing partner and I just love him for being so nice"; "Bobby [Kennedy] said we might have an evening again before you go - which would be lovely." A four page autograph letter signed "Jackie." Written on blue 1040 Fifth Avenue stationary [no date, ca. Summer, 1965]. To "Dear Margot and Tito." Jackie writes of taking her son and daughter to see Margot Fonteyn's performance of Giselle. This letter includes hand written thank you notes from both Caroline and John Kennedy Jr. The correspondence reflects Kennedy's deep admiration of both ballet and of Fonteyn. It also provides valuable insight into Kennedy's attempts while First Lady to bring ballet to the American people. The long friendship between Kennedy and Fonteyn which began in 1962 and extended until, at least, the marriage of Caroline Kennedy in 1986, is also documented in these letters and photographs. Provenance: Estate of Margot Fonteyn.

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

      Collier Books, New York, 1963, New York - 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. Still, 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 not affecting the front cover illustration however. 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 Star Trek? In any event, this paperpack is obviously no mere paperback but is instead a valuable relic of a television legend. Octavo, 256pp [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
