        Basil Seal Rides Again or The Rake's Regress

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1963. London: Chapman & Hall,, 1963. Frontispiece by Kathleen Hale. Quarto. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and pictorial design to upper board gilt, blue endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Housed in a blue quarter morocco slipcase and chemise. Colour frontispiece by Kathleen Hale. Spine slightly faded, margins of contents faintly toned. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression. One of a limited edition of 750 numbered copies, this an out of series copy inscribed by the author on the limitation leaf, "for Jackie & Frankie, with sexagenarian greetings, from Evelyn". Frances Donaldson was an author and one of Waugh's neighbours. "In the often acerbic Evelyn Waugh, Donaldson, compassionate farmer's wife and liberal humanist, could scarcely have found herself with a west country neighbour less similar, brilliant satirist, ardent Roman Catholic, and arch-reactionary as he was. But in Evelyn Waugh: Portrait of a Country Neighbour (1967) Frances Donaldson produced a critical yet immensely sympathetic reassessment of a man seemingly imbued with hidden charm. For many people Donaldson redressed with tact and truthfulness Waugh's popular image, that of a thoroughly unpleasant drunken bore, an image assiduously polished by Waugh himself. He was, she wrote, the only person she had ever known 'who seemed sincerely to long for death; he was terrifying to a stranger, merciless to a friend; but it is true that his house and life revolved round jokes; very, very funny jokes' (F. Donaldson, Evelyn Waugh: Portrait of a Country Neighbour, 1967, xiii)" (ODNB).

        IT CATCHES MY HEART IN ITS HANDS

      New Orleans: Loujon Press, 1963. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine in Wraps. Large 8vo. Near Fine. Front rice paper tissue moderately creased. Trace rubbing here and there at extremities. Else bright, sharp, clean, and sound in custom-made linen slipcase. INSCRIBED, DATED AND SIGNED BY BUKOWSKI in silver ink: "There's never enough to drink, but there's always somebody to tell you what writing should be. Charles Bukowski 12-10-63." Above this inscription Bukowski has added an original drawing. A particularly Bukowskian inscription in a particularly handsome example of a fragile production. Widely considered Bukowski's most beautifully-produced volume, and arguably his first major collection. One of 777 copies designed, hand-printed and -bound by Jon and Louise Webb, this one of a very small number specially-signed copies (several sources suggest 40, but I have been unable to independently confirm) with an original drawing and aphoristic inscription by Bukowski.

        Typed Letter Signed from John O'Hara to screenwriter and producer Eugene Solow regarding adapting his novel "A Family Party

      N.p., 1963. N.p.: N.p., 1963. Typed letter signed, holograph date of "23 May '63" at the top, and with O'Hara's Princeton, NJ address blindstamped to the upper corner, to screenwriter and producer Eugene Solow. Solow is best known as the screenwriter for the 1939 adaptation of Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men" starring Burgess Meredith and Lon Chaney, Jr, and went on to a long career as a television writer and producer.& & The letter begins with O'Hara discussing Buddy Ebsen and Ed Begley, the latter whom O'Hara states he prefers for the role of Sam Merritt in "A Family Party," a property he says "is very much for sale." & & O'Hara then goes on to decline adapting the work himself, stating he will "never again work on my own material after its original appearance," continuing with a breakdown of his forthcoming publications, and boldly stating his desire "to create a body of work that tells... the story of the first half of this century in this country." The letter concludes with a scathing comment about the current state of television writing, and a promise to send Solow's original letter, presumably regarding the rights to "A Family Plan," to H.L. Swanson, O'Hara's Hollywood literary agent.& & Single leaf, recto only, with two holograph ink notations ("McHugh" and "Swanson," each followed by numbers) presumably by Solow at the top. About Near Fine, with a chip missing at the top right and a single, short closed tear at the bottom edge, folded once horizontally and twice vertically for mailing.

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).

        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.

        THRILLING CITIES

      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]
