        The Complete Writings of Roger Williams, in Seven Volumes

      Russell & Russell 1963 - First thus. No jackets. An exceptional set. 1963 Hard Cover. Complete in seven volumes. 396; 276; 425; 547; 503; 420; 279 pp. 8vo. Original green cloth, gilt titles. Issued in a limited edition of four hundred sets. This edition comprises the full contents of the six-volume 1866 Narragansett Edition in facsimile, with new material collected and presented separately in a seventh volume. A publisher's note stated that this was done "to retain the original pagination of the first six volumes and thereby maintain the integrity of the voluminous references to the Narragansett Edition in the literature about Roger Williams. Roger Williams was a religious activist who campaigned for religious freedom, and founded the first Baptist church in America. He believed strongly in the separation of church and state, and also founded the Providence Plantation, which provided a safe haven for victims of religious persecution. He is often credited as America's first abolitionist as well, in that he was the first colonist to organize an attempt to prohibit the practice of slavery. His strong beliefs often put him at odds with other believers: he was banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony after speaking against the methods of government numerous times, and he and John Cotton engaged in a lengthy debate in print over various religious issues. "His surviving papers and polemical works have been published among several different primary works: The Publications of the Narragansett Club (6 vols., 1866-1874), reprinted with an additional volume as The Complete Writings of Roger Williams (7 vols., 1963). More books have been written about Williams than about any other American colonial figure born before Benjamin Franklin." (American National Biography, Glenn W. LaFantasie). Includes: I. Biographical Introduction; Key into the Language of America; Letter of Mr. John Cotton; Mr. Cotton's Letter Examined and Answered. II. John Cotton's Answer to Roger Williams: Queries of Highest Consideration; III. Bloudy Tenent of Persecution; IV. The Bloody Tenent Yet More Bloody; V. George Fox Digg'd out of His Burrowes; VI. The Letters of Roger Williams; VII. Publisher's Foreword; Roger Williams: An Essay in Interpretation; Christenings make Not Christians; Experiments of Spiritual Life and Health; The Fourth Paper Presented by Major Butler; The Hireling Ministry None of Christs; The Examiner - Defended in a Fair and Sober Answer.

        Cancellation cover Commemorating the World Chess Championship rematch of 1963

      One sheet cover with cancelled stamp and decorative chess board in black on beige paper. Commemorative cancel to stamp. Signed by both players, Tigran Petrosian in red ink and Mikhail Botvinnik in blue ink, dated by Botvinnik 22 May 1963. Stamped in Moscow.Event covers are decorated, stamped and canceled commemorative envelopes. They are created to celebrate an event or note an anniversary. The design (called a "cachet") is generally placed on the left side of the envelope (although there are also "all over" cachets). It explains what is being commemorated on what date, and some times includes an illustration page. Ideally, the stamps used relate to the celebration. Cancels are either obtained in the city of the event. If a special cancellation (one with a design) has been created for the event, you can generally only receive that cancel from the local post office.Tigran Petrosian (Armenian: ?????? ????????? Tigran Petrosyan; Russian: ?????? ?'????????? ???????? Tigran Vartanovich Petrosyan; June 17, 1929 ?" August 13, 1984) was a Soviet Armenian grandmaster, and World Chess Champion from 1963 to 1969. He was nicknamed "Iron Tigran" due to his almost impenetrable defensive playing style, which emphasized safety above all else. Petrosian was a Candidate for the World Championship on eight occasions (1953, 1956, 1959, 1962, 1971, 1974, 1977 and 1980). He won the world championship in 1963 (against Mikhail Botvinnik), successfully defended it in 1966 (against Boris Spassky), and lost it in 1969 (to Spassky). Thus he was the defending World Champion or a World Championship candidate in ten consecutive three-year cycles. He won the Soviet Championship four times (1959, 1961, 1969, and 1975). Petrosian was recognized as the hardest player to beat in the history of chess by the authors of a 2004 bookMikhail Moiseyevich Botvinnik, PhD (Russian: ??????? ?????????? ?'?????????, August 17 [O.S. August 4] 1911 ?" May 5, 1995) was a Soviet and Russian International Grandmaster and three-time World Chess Champion. Working as an electrical engineer and computer scientist at the same time, he was one of the very few famous chess players who achieved distinction in another career while playing top-class competitive chess. He was also a pioneer of computer chess. Botvinnik was the first world-class player to develop within the Soviet Union (Alekhine was a top player before the Russian Revolution), putting him under political pressure but also giving him considerable influence within Soviet chess. From time to time he was accused of using that influence to his own advantage, but the evidence is unclear and some suggest he resisted attempts by Soviet officials to intimidate some of his rivals. Botvinnik also played a major role in the organization of chess, making a significant contribution to the design of the World Chess Championship system after World War II and becoming a leading member of the coaching system that enabled the Soviet Union to dominate top-class chess during that time. His famous pupils include World Champions Anatoly Karpov, Garry Kasparov and Vladimir Kramnik.At the World Chess Championship 1963 Tigran Petrosian narrowly qualified to challenge Mikhail Botvinnik for the World Chess Championship, and then won the match to become the ninth World Chess Champion. The cycle is particularly remembered for the controversy surrounding the Candidates' Tournament at Curaçao in 1962, which resulted in FIDE changing the format of the Candidates Tournament to a series of knockout matches.Condition:Some edge wear with the top opening being slit in very good condition.

        The Feminine Mystique

      New York: W. W. Norton, 1963. First edition of the author's classic work. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Betty Friedan on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. 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).

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.

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.

      Philadelphia, PA & New York, NY: J. B. Lippincott Company, 1963. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Fine/Near Fine. ...V. is indescribably original. 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]
